Shaggy's Info...

I am already neutered, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.

Shaggy's Story...
Shaggy was surrendered to a shelter in very poor condition. He was matted, emaciated and in rough shape. He is now our chunky monkey! Shaggy is about 8 years best guess. He is also blind in one eye and is on medication for seizures. He is a very, very sweet dog who just wants a lap of his own. He will need a patient owner who can help with housebreaking. He's about twelve pounds.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Shaggy, a Pearisburg 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 Pearisburg, or seeking a Maltese/Poodle (Miniature) dog from a breeder in Pearisburg.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Pearisburg 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 Pearisburg 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 Pearisburg paves the way for another one to be saved.
