Scooby/Rock Star's Story...
Scooby/Rock Star is a one and a half year old Maltese mix who had a hard life on the streets until he was rescued by Eldad Hagar and Lisa Arturo of Hope for Paws after he had been abandoned by his owners for weeks. We learned of this scared, special boy and immediately took him into our foundation once he was neutered and vaccinated and microchipped. He warmed and started to trust and then he suddenly was a happy boy! He is now in a loving foster home and is flourishing wonderfully! Due to living on the streets and being abandoned he has some insecurities towards people at first but with time, patience, and love he learns to trust and will bond to you like glue! Scooby needs a dog savvy owner who can help show him what true love and kindness is. He is a growl talker and needs to know who the pack leader is. He is good with other small dogs once he feels comfortable around them. We recommend a home without young children. He does have some anxieties when left home alone so we ask for an owner who works from home or is not gone long hours at a time. This is a very special boy who needs a special home!
Scooby is neutered microchipped and current on vaccines. He weighs just under ten pounds.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Scooby/Rock Star, a Santa Monica Maltese dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Maltese for sale in Santa Monica, or seeking a Maltese dog from a breeder in Santa Monica.

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