Dandi Valentino's Story...
UPDATED BIO 02-18-2012: Dandi Valentino is an adorable 6 y/o maltese mix, who weighs 10.80 lbs. He was rescued at the last minute from an animal shelter where his time had run out. He had a upper respiratory infection which was causing a high temperature and labored breathing. After one week of antibiotics, he is doing much, much better. Dandi has also been diagnosed with a moderate collapsed trachea which is being currently treated with bronchodilators. The vet doesn't think he will need this medication after the respiratory infection has cleared up. He is feeling so much better and has a pep in his walk - he loves to greet both people and other dogs on his walks. He is very curious and alert when he sees a squirrel or a bird - he is not a barker. Dandi is both leash and housetrained - what a smart boy he is! He has not had such a good life before he was rescued, and he deserves a loving home where he will be cared for - well, forever, and never ever have to be moved again. His foster parents adore him and think he is such a super kewl doggie............how about you?

INITIAL BIO 02-13-2012: Dandi Valentino is an adorable 6 y/o maltese mix, who weighs 11.80 lbs; he is being fostered in The Villages, FL. Dandi was rescued at the last minute from an animal shelter where his time had run out.........Dandi is a very sweet little boy who spent every moment, of every year, sitting in a crate with his little female companion, who was adopted quickly from the shelter. The crate was covered in excrement and urine; both dogs' nails were curved under, almost growing into their paw pads, and matted so badly that their beautiful hair looked like dreadlocks. Dandi was covered in fleas and had hookworms; he had to be shaved down to the skin. He has been seriously neglected and ignored his entire life, and in spite of this, he is a loving, gentle-natured and very sweet little boy. He is both house-trained and leash-trained. It appears that Dandi may have a collapsed trachea and could also have kennel cough. His little body just heaves with coughs - he will see the vet immediately, so please watch for updates on this precious little boy.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dandi Valentino, a The Villages Maltese/Chihuahua dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Maltese/Chihuahua for sale in The Villages, or seeking a Maltese/Chihuahua dog from a breeder in The Villages.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in The Villages 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 The Villages 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/Chihuahua breeders who help with Maltese/Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in The Villages paves the way for another one to be saved.
