Facts about Kingston

  • Breed: Terrier (Unknown Type, Small)/Maltese Mix
  • Color: White
  • Age: Puppy
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
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!

About Little Blessings Pet Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Little Blessings Pet Rescue a small organization with a mission to save at risk animals from euthanasia. The shelters we rescue from are in Southern CA and have a 60% rate of euthanasia. It is hard to make it out alive. We believe giving a shelter dog 1-3 days to be adopted is wrong and we want to do something to help. We are all volunteer and work without profit. We network, rescue, foster and help find our rescued animals permanent and happy homes.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We meet our adopters by appointment only.

Our Adoption Process...

After our dogs are completely vetted and healthy, we start the adoption process. There is an application process that includes an application. We are looking for responsible, caring people to adopt our dogs, so a reference from a vet is required or an account set up for the animal's care. If there are other dogs involved, we meet in a neutral space first. If all goes well, we do an in home interview to see if the environment is safe and the dog fits in well. There is an adoption contract that states they agree to not sell, or abandon to a shelter, or euthanize (without a recommendation from a licensed veterinarian). They must agree to return the dog if they can no longer care for it. We have a follow-up appointment to ensure success two weeks later. We just ask that an adopter pay the actual rescue fees. We are happy to provide receipts to show our costs. The fee then pays for the rescue of another dog.
