Mario ~adopted~'s Story...
Hi there My name is Mario. I’m an 8 year old light sable colored Papillon, my brother and I lost our home when our owner died. I’m a very typical Papillon with my “love the one your with” attitude and being friendly. I’m bigger than most Papillons at 19 lbs, but I’m still a pure Papillon. All of my teeth look great, but for some reason, the top 4 are missing, but you wouldn’t know it. I’m great on a leash and I’m completely house broken. I only bark when there is a reason to (other dogs bark or I’m alarmed) but I also stop when I’m told to. I’m not big into chew toys or running around like a crazy pup but if the treat is good, I’m right there will all of my attention! I get along fine with and don’t mind the other dogs, but I’m not really interested in them. I also just 100% ignore cats, because dogs rule… I’m not sure what’s broken, but I’ve been told I’m going to be fixed soon. I’ve been rolling with the punches and I’ve adapted well to having to stay in different places. I’d really like one place to call my own for sure though. If you have room for my Papillon brother Ike, too, I’d really like that because I’ve never been without him and I’m not sure how I’d do without my little buddy.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Mario ~adopted~, a Bay City Papillon dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Papillon for sale in Bay City, or seeking a Papillon dog from a breeder in Bay City.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Bay City 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 Bay City 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 Papillon breeders who help with Papillon rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Bay City paves the way for another one to be saved.
