Kingston's Info...

Kingston's Story...
Kingston is a very sweet 6 month old puppy. He will wrap his paws around your neck and hug you. He was one of the calmest dogs in the litter that were born on Easter. His mom is a maltese poodle mix. His dad ...most likely a terrier. He is going to be on the large size of small around 16-18 lbs when full grown. He does not shed. Kingston had an unfortunate experience with kids, so he is nervous around children and can become nippy. We are not placing him with kids, or in a family that has small grandkids under 14. We have come to learn that Kingston is not happy being an only dog. He is not meant to be an alpha. He wants to blend into the pack and is very happy with the two dogs he is being fostered with. He can be fearful of men and new people coming into the house. His foster mom and dad have made leaps and bounds progress with him. However, if there is a man in the house, he will need to win Kingston's trust. It can be done since his foster dad has won him over! Kingston prefers women and especially motherly, or soft spoken, feminine women. He senses if you are a dog lover and responds accordingly too. The great news after sharing all of this, is that Kingston is only 6 months old. He has tons of potential in the right hands.

What we are looking for: His adopter should have a fenced yard and have the time to be with him. He also needs doggie friends. He is very playful and loves to run and play with his doggie buddies. He will need an experienced owner that has lots of love and patience. His adopter will need to be willing to help him overcome his fear and let him be the goofy puppy he wants to be. The perfect environment will be calm, nurturing and loving.

Fee/ What is included: All vaccinations, deworming, microchip, neuter, $395
We do not allow out of state adoptions.

What to expect: We have an applications process, so please email us for an application, or copy one from our website. All of our dogs are in foster homes, so after we receive applications, we are matchmaking. We set up appointments to meet. Please be in a position to adopt and be ready since we are all volunteers with busy lives. Home safety checks are required. Thank You!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Kingston, a Seattle Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Maltese puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Maltese for sale in Seattle, or seeking a Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Maltese puppy from a breeder in Seattle.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Seattle 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 Seattle 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!
