Trumpet has an Angel... Sharon Harper. SCMR thanks you and Trumpet thanks you too!!
Hello....... I'm Trumpet, and I'm happy to be in caring hands.
I had been terribly neglected after my Daddy passed away and a small cyst was allowed to go untreated for a long time. It became a cancerous tumor, and SCMR had it removed after I was saved from the shelter. We are still waiting for further testing, but the doctor thinks that I have a good possibility of a full recovery. Because of the poor condition I was in when I arrived and the resulting extreme surgery, my coat was in very poor condition, but it is coming back in soft wispy waves that will soon cover my freckles. I stood absolutely still and relaxed while foster mom snipped the last of the mats off me. I really like that pampering stuff!
My teeth had probably never been cleaned, and I had to have 18 extractions. I am eating just fine now with the pearly whites that are left. Dogs have a lot more teeth than people do, thank goodness!! I also needed to be neutered and that was a breeze. After all those procedures I'm feeling terrific, and I have made friends with Buffy, another little fluff butt at my foster moms.
I am full of fun and listen intently to everything you say to me. I'm house trained and a complete gentleman. Foster mom did a little digging and found out my real name. Holy smokes, was I excited when she called me by my own name! The shelter had given me the name Trumpet, and I was so confused, but now they know who I am. So don't worry... that BIG secret will be shared with my new family.
I'm about 11 years old and around 13 pounds; a bit taller than other Maltese, so there's a little mix of some kind of sneaky dog.
Until somebody is lucky enough to get me, I'm doin' some R&R in Largo, FL.
