Pogo's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Pogo's Story...
Pogo came with his mom, Izzie when their owner moved into a nursing home. They are very bonded and Pogo barks when left alone. They must be adopted together. Both have lived with kids under 5 years of age, small dogs and visited with large dogs. They are both afraid of thunderstorms and do not like their paws or nails touched. Although not crate trained, Pogo is used to sleeping in a confined area at night and is left in a confined area when alone. Pogo is described as friendly to family and visitors, affectionate, a lap dog, active, gentle, playful and a couch potato.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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