Cooper's Story...
Coopers Story

"My name is Cooper, I am looking for the perfect family to give me the care and love I need. My favourite thing is to cuddle on the couch or bed with people, especially if they are petting me all over. I am very affectionate towards people and enjoy getting all the attention. It would be ideal if I was the only pet in the house, but I do get along with most small dogs. My daily activities need to include lots of walks and car rides, as I love spending quality time with my family. I don’t look my age(11 years old) but in a couple of years I am looking to retire and start taking it easy.

Currently I am learning tricks and commands as my previous owners prevented me from having much human interaction. For the past 2 years I had been living in a basement with basic care while my owner was trying to handle their personal life (multiple deaths in the family). Only when my owner had to suddenly move my care became a priority. When I arrived at the Vet my entire body was covered with 2-3 inches of matting and desperately needed a groom. After being heavily sedated and all my fur clipped(could finally see that I am a Maltese), I felt much better and my personality began to appear. A technician at the clinic saw the sweet boy I am and knew I deserved to be happy and healthy. After being vaccinated, de-wormed, neutered and having full blood work I am ready to move on from the neglect and into a loving forever home. "

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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