Ozzie's Story...
Hi! My name is Ozzie and I am a little Maltese boy who is about 4 years old and I weigh 6.5 lbs after all the terrible mats I had were shaved off. I know, I look more like a Poodle right now!
I am very timid but I don’t bite, I’m just scared because it hurt so bad when I was touched before I was shaved that I did everything I could not to be touched. I need a quiet home with someone with lots of love and patience to teach me that I will never hurt again so if you want to teach me all about this big world outside of a cage and pain, please ask for me on your application to
Wanting to love, Ozzie 050111-2

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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