Facts about Charlie

  • Breed: Maltese Mix
  • Color: White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Meet Charlie, a little cutie patootie who ended up in a Florida shelter after have been rescued from the streets of Miami. He was adopted from the shelter by a kind family and after a few months, made the move to Montreal with them. Charlie’s unknown past started catching up with him, however, and he began showing intolerance to the family’s young children. Very reluctantly, Charlie was surrendered to Kiko’s care so that we could find him a more suitable home. Estimated to be around 3 years of age, little Charlie weighs in at 8.5 pounds, and appears to be a Maltese or similar mix. Since arriving at his foster home, Charlie has been a star! He gets along well with everyone, including the foster family’s dog and cat, although as with his former family, does appear more comfortable around women than men. Charlie is housetrained, and seems to like the comfort of his crate when left alone. He is not a big barker, so could be suitable for an apartment or condo, and is described as very sweet. Being a ladies’ man, we have promised Charlie a new home with a female presence and without young children. If you think Charlie could be the new man in your life, please complete an adoption questionnaire at Charlie will be at our next adoption day at Mon Ami in Kirkland on Saturday, October 22 from 11:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. Details with a link to a map can be found on our website.

About Kiko Dog Rescue and Adoptions

About Our Rescue Group...

Kiko Dog Rescue and Adoptions is a small non-profit rescue group located west of Montreal near the Quebec/Ontario border and is named after a little black Pug rescued from a puppy mill. We are dedicated to helping dogs that have found themselves homeless, whether they are from a pound, puppy mill or a home surrender, by placing them in the loving forever homes they so deserve. All dogs that come into our rescue receive whatever veterinary care they require, including everything from dentistry to surgery to help correct an uncomfortable or painful medical condition. In many cases, the adoption fee is not enough to cover a dog's vet bill. If you would like to help us by making a donation towards our vet bill, please click on the Paypal button. Thank you!

Our dogs are not kept at a shelter. We rely on the generosity of foster families. If you are not ready for a permanent adoption and would like to consider fostering on a temporary basis, please contact us for more information. Food and veterinary care is provided by Kiko—all you need to provide is a warm loving haven.

Our Adoption Process...

If you are interested in adopting a Kiko dog, please e-mail us. You will be asked to complete an adoption application so that we can get to know you better. A home visit is also mandatory, often with the dog that interests you. Our adoption fee is $400 and all our dogs are examined by a veterinarian, defleaed, dewormed*, vaccinated, sterilized and also tested for heartworm and lyme disease. *Please note that puppies adopted at a young age may require ongoing deworming for up to six months. Although this is a relatively inexpensive treatment, Kiko is unable to cover this and will only take care of deworming while the puppy is under the care of the rescue.
