Seattle, Washington – Rex is about the cutest little white lap dog you will ever meet. This 7 year old Maltipoo (Maltese/Toy Poodle Mix) is such a cuddle muffin! He is an 11 pound bundle of love, who gives much more than he gets. Rex is so smart and compassionate – the ultimate therapy dog! He almost seems human in his ability to communicate, listen and show empathy. (He could show people a thing or two about being a great friend!)
Rex has been neutered, and is up to date on his shots. Rex is pretty healthy, but has a condition where he gets occasional pain in his spine. This is not life-threatening, but has caused him to become very anxious around children, particularly when they are near his tail. He has nipped the small children in his family as a result. Rex occasionally needs pain medication. Rex is also feeling overwhelmed by all the activity in the home. This has resulted n a lot of barking behavior. He needs a much quieter home so that he does not feel the need to be on alert at all times.
Rex’s owners love him so much. They have had him since he was a puppy. Unfortunately having 3 small children and a very busy household is not an ideal situation for Rex. He is always on edge, and his family are also on edge as a result. They want the very best for him, and realize that finding him a more suitable home will be better for everyone.
Rex’s ideal home will be with a single or couple who stay at home. A retired person with a warm lap for Rex to snuggle up on would be perfect for him. He likes to go outdoors, so a securely fenced yard would be nice. He really needs a quiet, loving home where there are not too many surprises in order to feel happy, safe and confident.
Rex has some challenges with potty training. An attentive owner with patience and persistence should be able to help him re-learn proper house training. He’s such a loving companion that it’s well worth the effort. He gives much more than he gets.
If you are a compassionate, patient retired dog lover in need of a charming, sweet, and amazingly cute companion, please offer Rex the home he needs and deserves today.
