Shanti's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Shanti's Story...
Shanti was among a group of 7 dogs dumped at a high-kill shelter by their owner, who was a backyard breeder. All dogs were in very poor shape with years of medical and emotional neglect. But it turns out that their owner dumping them was the start of a wonderful new life for this girl!

Shanti is estimated to be between 7-10 years old and weighs around 10 pounds. It's obvious from her actions that she has always lived in a smaller kennel and never known the freedom of being loose in a home or yard.

Shanti has a fabulous foster mom who has patiently let her learn to trust and enjoy new experiences. She is working on housetraining, but this is new to her so she will need a family with patience and the commitment to keep working with her.

Shanti is learning to walk on a leash and exploring outside. She is very affectionate with her foster mom and is wonderful with other dogs and cats. Shanti is spayed, has had an extensive dental, and is current on vaccines and microchipped.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Phoenix 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 Phoenix 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 Poodle (Miniature)/Maltese breeders who help with Poodle (Miniature)/Maltese rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Phoenix paves the way for another one to be saved.
