Merlot's Info...

Merlot's Story...
Merlot is a young 9 month old, 8 lbs swwetheart that will melt your heart. She came into our rescue at the request of our local shelter in Bonita. She came into the shelter as a stray with a horrible injury to her rear leg/hip. We took her to our vet and x-rays revealed that Merlot had an injury too severe and too old to mend, the ultimate solution was to amputate her leg.
Merlot has healed from her surgery and gets along just fine on three legs. Being that she wasn't able to use the injured leg anyhow, the transition was no problem for Merlot.

Her foster mom's says that Merlot is a shy, sensitive and gentle girl that is cautious when new people and dogs come around. She gets along with all other dogs, yet a little timid with dogs that are too assertive towards her.
Merlot is also cautious around young children and would do best in a home with children over the age of 8.
Merlot is very playful yet loves her nap times. She's a snuggler and enjoys hanging out to watch TV with her foster family, making her a great companion.
This sweet girl is small, sweet, house trained, and is great company to have around.
Merlot has been vaccinated, micro chipped, and spayed. Available for adoption.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Merlot, a San Diego Maltese dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Maltese for sale in San Diego, or seeking a Maltese dog from a breeder in San Diego.

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