Marilyn's Story...
Marilyn (female)
I’m a super-sweet Maltese/Sheep Dog mix type dog. I’m approximately 4-5 years old based upon the condition of my teeth. I wandered up to a really nice woman’s home and she took me in. She’s been unable to find my owner, which is probably a good thing... because I’m in terrible shape. I’m covered in mats and fleas. My teeth are broken as if I was in something or attached to something and was trying to get free. I appear to have had many litters in my lifetime and I have a tumor or some type of cyst on one of my teats that will need surgery, which can be taken care of when I’m spayed. It’s possible that it is a metastasized teat. I’m about 25 pounds, so I’m not too little and I’m not too big. My rescuer has determined that I’m housetrained, get along great with other dogs and cats. I travel well in a car and walk well on a leash. I’m not destructive and I don’t dig. My rescuer brought me to Pet Savers where I was given a topical for my fleas and a 7in1 vaccination. Pet Savers is really full right now, but said that they would put me on the internet for adoption. They said they would take me in as soon as a kennel opens up. While in foster, my adoption fee is $50 which will get you a voucher to go towards my spaying. When I come to Pet Savers, my adoption fee will increase to $125.00 to cover spaying, rabies, and heartworm testing. Pet Savers wants to make sure I go to a home where I will finally be taken care of properly. If you think you’d like to bring me into your home and heart, please e-mail petsavers@bellsouth.net for an adoption application. Only responsible pet owners need apply!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Marilyn, a Haughton Maltese/Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Maltese/Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog for sale in Haughton, or seeking a Maltese/Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog dog from a breeder in Haughton.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Haughton 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 Haughton 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/Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog breeders who help with Maltese/Sheltie, Shetland Sheepdog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Haughton paves the way for another one to be saved.
