Eddy's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Eddy's Story...
Meet Eddy. This precious little fluffy mix that we're not sure of who is 9 years old and currently weighs 5 pounds. Little Eddy hasn't been given a fair shake in life. One day his people decided they didn't want him anymore so they surrendered him to a vet clinic. Eddy had been neglected. His teeth were awful and he had a mass which the vet took care of. Unfortunately Eddy had to have all of his teeth removed, which as you can see, causes his tongue to hang out in the cutest way. This isn't a problem for eating though - Eddy happily munches down on wet puppy food. The mass was also removed, biopsied and was found to be benign. So Eddy is all fixed up now and ready for his new home.

Eddy is current with vaccinations, neutered heartworm negative and microchipped. He gets along with all people from babies to seniors. He's very friendly and loves to cuddle. Eddy is crate trained and somewhat housebroken. He's been living at the vet for a few months so it's hard for him to hold it. Additionally he's a little bitty boy so will need to be taken out frequently.

Eddy appears to be good with all dogs and cats, however a meet and greet with any resident dogs will be necessary since he's so tiny.

Eddy is just the sweetest little guy and loves being around people. Eddy needs a home of his own where he can be loved on and interact with people. Living at the vet is no
I've for such a sweet little boy.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Eddy, a Baton Rouge Shih Tzu/Maltese dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shih Tzu/Maltese for sale in Baton Rouge, or seeking a Shih Tzu/Maltese dog from a breeder in Baton Rouge.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Baton Rouge 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 Baton Rouge 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 Shih Tzu/Maltese breeders who help with Shih Tzu/Maltese rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Baton Rouge paves the way for another one to be saved.
