Dickens's Story...

Hellooooo Portland. My name is Dickens. I think I might be a Maltese Bichon mix. I around 3 yrs of age. I love people! I like to greet everyone I meet with kisses. I am a smart spunky playful bundle of energy in a small low rider package. I weigh in at around 15 lbs.

If you have another playful dog that is looking for a companion, I would be just the guy to pair with. Not sure about cats yet.

I like playing with toys and chasing after a ball. I enjoy my walks and have pretty good leash skills. I will sit for my treats. I am smart and want to please. Did I mention I am very treat motivated?  

When I was rescued I was so matted that I had to be completely shaved down. My new short cut really highlights my super cute tail. My Foster mom says I like to roll it up like a Fiddlehead fern. Whatever that means. My soft hair will grow back in and once it does it will need regular brushing and grooming.    

Every Underdog has been spayed or neutered, micro-chipped, flea/tick treated, de-wormed, and received rabies, bordetella and distemper/parvo vaccines. All dogs have had a recent visit to the vet as well.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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