Peter's Story...
male 2 yr old maltese


Peter is a 2ish year old maltese who is looking for his new family. Peter would do best in a home with no kids or older children as he does not appreciate any rough handling. Peter may only be 8 lbs but he is the boss of his world. He would do well in a home with little dog experience. Looking for a bossy little guy in your life? This is your boy. Peter gets along with other dogs and cats.

Please fill out an adoption application and a volunteer will set up a meet and greet.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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