DINKIE's Story...

THIS IS DINKIE....a "dinky" little 8 lb, 3 yr old, black and white Maltese/Poodle....yet, if you haven't ever seen a black Maltese mix, that's what we think she is! With soft, curly and straight hair, and the face of a Maltese....this little girl is a doll. Dinkie came out of the Baldwin Park
Shelter and went straight into the hospital with pneumonia The vet said she probably had about 24 hours before she would have gone completely downhill, so we were thrilled we caught it just in time! Once she started to come out of her shell, when she was feeling better, she showed us what a great BIG personality she has!! She is a wonderful combination of active and mellow....and a protective little thing, too!! She will growl at unfamiliar noises to warn you that "someone's coming!" She loves to give kisses, but most of all, she really just wants to be by your side at all times. As soon as you bring out a toy, she goes nuts! She loves playing with her tennis balls and she loves going for walks. Dinkie could go to a home with or without dogs...but definitely doesn't like being left alone. While she is diminutive in size, she makes up for it in her alpha nature! Even though she is small, she can hold her own even with larger dogs! The one thing that would be most important in a home for Dinkie is the ability to spend a lot of time loving her, as that's what she needs the most. She is a character who will continue to entertain you and make you laugh...especially when she dances and bats her paws at you to show you she has "rhythm!" This is a sweetheart of a dog who will be a wonderful companion for life! Does that sound like your home?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

DINKIE, a Los Angeles Poodle (Toy or Tea Cup)/Maltese dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Poodle (Toy or Tea Cup)/Maltese for sale in Los Angeles, or seeking a Poodle (Toy or Tea Cup)/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 Poodle (Toy or Tea Cup)/Maltese breeders who help with Poodle (Toy or Tea Cup)/Maltese rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Los Angeles paves the way for another one to be saved.
