Charlie's Story...
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 www.kikodogrescue.ca. 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.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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