Ruthie*Adopted's Story...

Adoption Donation: $175.00

Meet Ruthie. She is a retired puppy mill breeder. She is 8 years old and her weight is about 10 pounds. She is still very shy, but starting to warm up. Ruthie is not familiar with being touched but tolerates her daily petting sessions. She really wants to trust people, but it will take time and patience.  In the right home, she will blossom into the wonderful dog she was meant to be.

She gets along well with her fur siblings, can manage a doggie door and is house trained. She loves sleeping inside and looks forward to meal time. 

She is currently being fostered in Chattanooga, TN.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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