Carter's Story...
Do you want to truly “rescue” a canine? If so, Carter could be your perfect match. A PAWS volunteer found this little stray in the Coronado Little League field. He was scared and in terrible condition: his fur was filthy and so matted that he could barely walk. In addition, some of his teeth were so sore that he winced whenever his head was touched. PAWS began his rescue by having the veterinarian shave him down to his skin to remove all his matted fur. Now Carter feels so much better, he is happily walking and running. In addition, he has had extensive dental work so he will now allow people to touch his face and pet him on his head. Carter, a four-year-old male Poodle/Bichon Frise mix who weighs 15 pounds, is finally ready for his forever home.

Today, this once frightened boy is delightful and loving. Carter enjoys being close with his human pals. He wants to be by his human’s side and will follow you anywhere. Carter walks nicely on a leash and rides well in the car. He is currently sporting his “summer coat,” but within the next few weeks his beautiful white fluffy coat will reappear. Come meet Carter today at the Coronado Animal Care Facility and make this deserving boy’s rescue complete, he will be a great addition to your family!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Carter, a Coronado Poodle (Miniature)/Bichon Frise dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Poodle (Miniature)/Bichon Frise for sale in Coronado, or seeking a Poodle (Miniature)/Bichon Frise dog from a breeder in Coronado.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Coronado 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 Coronado 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 Poodle (Miniature)/Bichon Frise breeders who help with Poodle (Miniature)/Bichon Frise rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Coronado paves the way for another one to be saved.
