Bruce's Story...
Bruce's adoption fee is $350.

Bruce is a 3 year old Maltese mix that weighs about 16 pounds. He’s neutered, up to date with his vaccines and micro chipped. He also had a dental done when he came into care.

This little fellow is a happy boy and loves playing with other dogs or cuddling on the couch with his human. Belly rubs are appreciated! An adult home, or a home with active older children, would be best for him, and he does bark some, so would not be suited for apartment or condo living. He would also really enjoy a gentle and compatible dog to play and hang out with. He enjoys his walks, eats like a champ and sleeps contentedly through the night. A fenced yard would be ideal as he loves to be outside and poking around after meals. But then he wants to be inside with his stuffed dog, which he uses to soothe himself. He presented with allergies, but a dietary change seems to have dealt with that, and he should remain on his current diet to help prevent issues from re-occurring. If necessary he can take a generic antihistamine to deal with seasonal allergies.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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