Wesley's Info...

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

Wesley's Story...
Wesley is a very sweet young boy who came up as a stray from Kentucky on 8/7. He is recently neutered and about 8 pounds. He appears to be about 75% Maltese and 25% West Highland Terrier. He is very underweight and would probably be healthy at about 12 pounds. His age was estimated at 2 years but he acts like a silly puppy and is likely younger than that. He is not housetrained. He will go to the bathroom outside but inside also. You will never see him lift his leg in the house but he soaks his belly band several times per day. Maltese dogs are beautiful with silky fur and a disposition bred as a companion/house dog but mature late. They are notorious for taking a long time to housetrain even with an early start. He is playful and good with other small dogs but knows how to stand his ground. He loves to be carried and to play with squeaky toys and chew bones and snuggle up next to you in the bed at night. He does not like to be crated. He does not bark a lot but does howl. He would make a great companion dog with someone without young children who might hurt or scare him and who has a lot of patience and understands how to gently housetrain a dog over a long period of time. If you can meet the challenges of this beautiful boy you will be rewarded with a lifetime of silky snuggles, big brown eyes, and a loyal friend.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Wesley, a Sugar Grove Maltese/Westie, West Highland White Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Maltese/Westie, West Highland White Terrier for sale in Sugar Grove, or seeking a Maltese/Westie, West Highland White Terrier dog from a breeder in Sugar Grove.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Sugar Grove 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 Sugar Grove 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/Westie, West Highland White Terrier breeders who help with Maltese/Westie, West Highland White Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Sugar Grove paves the way for another one to be saved.
