Shaggy's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Shaggy's Story...
Shaggy got dumped at the pound because his owners were moving. This poor little boy was so scared and shut down at the pound, it is so much harder on owner surrenders. They don't know what to think and it is so sad to see. He is in a foster home with small and big dogs and is fine with all. He has started chasing the cats in his foster home so would be best with no cats. We think he is better suited in a home without young children because he is small and children tend to grabbed the small ones. He is about 3 years old and 10lbs. He looks to be a Shih Tzu/Maltese. He is fully vetted meaning fixed, current on all shots, heartworm negative, micro chipped and on monthly prevention. He needs a home with a fenced in yard.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Shaggy, a Haggerstown Shih Tzu/Maltese dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shih Tzu/Maltese for sale in Haggerstown, or seeking a Shih Tzu/Maltese dog from a breeder in Haggerstown.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Haggerstown 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 Haggerstown 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 Shih Tzu/Maltese breeders who help with Shih Tzu/Maltese rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Haggerstown paves the way for another one to be saved.
