Buttercup's Story...
Buttercup is a BIG bundle of playfulness pup in a small package! She will absolutely steal your heart with her big dog demeanor and positive energy. She listens well to your instructions, and has been crate trained. She needs a little work on her potty training, but with regular diligence, she will do fine. She will go to the door to let you know that she needs to use the restroom, and will pull back from coming inside if she needs to finish her “business.” Buttercup was so very timid when she first came to her foster mom five weeks ago, but has come a very long way with her socialization. She scored very well on her behavior assessment, and will warm up to a loving individual with no problem. She is only 5.5 pounds, so large crowds of people tend to make her nervous when she is walking on her leash. She is still very young at an estimated year of age, so you need to be careful with your shoes being at her disposal! She has had a good appetite, and will quickly finish her doggy bowl. She loves being outside and running around a large yard. She is also happy curling up on your lap, and has been very engaged in playing with one of the two dogs at her foster home. (Her other suite mate, Grandpa Casey, is not so willing, lol.) Buttercup is a darling, little dog who will bring joy wherever she goes.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Buttercup, a Toledo Maltese/Poodle (Miniature) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Maltese/Poodle (Miniature) for sale in Toledo, or seeking a Maltese/Poodle (Miniature) dog from a breeder in Toledo.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Toledo already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Toledo breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Maltese/Poodle (Miniature) breeders who help with Maltese/Poodle (Miniature) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Toledo paves the way for another one to be saved.
