SKIPPER's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, not good with dogs, and not good with cats.

SKIPPER's Story...
THIS IS SKIPPER...and he's a little confused. This tiny, 4 lb, 5 1/2 yr old purebred Maltese has found himself homeless. HIs mom and dad and 3 yr old human sister are moving to Texas, and they can't take him with them. Skipper has been a pampered pup...he has gone to the groomer every week since he was 1 yr old!! He has become very guarding of his human mom and it has been difficult for her with a toddler. She told us he barks to protect her....we have not heard him bark yet! With some training and a different environment, we are hoping that Skipper feels very secure and doesn't feel the need to guard. Mom said that he would not bark when she left him alone...just when she was around!! Skipper is afraid of cats, as he was attacked by one when he was young. He also hasn't been around a lot of dogs, although we are socializing him. The best home would be one where he gets a lot of attention and he can just be a loving lap dog!! That's what he wants to be! He is definitely a pocket pooch at 4 lbs! He is housetrained thru a doggie door and pee pads...however he has been known to have accidents when he is not happy! This is very typical of a maltese!!!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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