Rusty's Story...
Rusty is a young-ish adult Maltese and everything you would expect from the breed. A beauty, he is a vivacious, smart, loves attention and knows just how cute he is, lol! We are still getting to know this little guy, but he can be around dogs of any size and is a love bug who is very easy to get along with. He is no fan of the crate, at which time he can be noisy, so we do not recommend him for a home where he will be alone for long stretches of time, but is not overly cleaving and is a well adjusted boy :) Applications are available on the website or by contacting Lucy at His adoption fee is $450.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rusty, a West Warwick Maltese dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Maltese for sale in West Warwick, or seeking a Maltese dog from a breeder in West Warwick.

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