Tempie's Story...
Meet Tempie! She is a Poodle mix, possibly a Maltipoo, around 2 years old. This sweet girl was abandoned and longs to be loved and spoiled. She was found with overgrown and matted fur, but luckily no visible signs of injury. It took her several weeks to make a single peep. She would try to bark, but it sounded like she had no true bark. But after care and attention, she regained her bark. Tempie may have had some trauma to her bottom area, because she walks and runs with a little bit of a waddle and a curved back. However, it does not get in her way and she shows no sign of being in pain!

Tempie does have sensitive skin, but she is heartworm negative - YAY! She has been around kids in her foster home and seems to be playful, but occasionally nipped at their feet or hands, so would do best in a home without small kids, or even an adult-only household. Her foster home does not have any other pets, but when Tempie visited with other animals she became playful, but quickly tired of it and became somewhat irritated. We believe she can be tailored to the right multi-dog family with time and maybe some training. She really is as sweet as can be and just wants to find a family of her own. Please consider adopting Tempie! Apply to adopt at - Thanks!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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