Spike's Info...

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

Spike's Story...
Spike is about 6 mos. He is a special boy. Very sweet, lovey, playful and good boy. He is a tiny guy about 5 lbs. So we are looking for an adult home or a home that can be careful with him. He is not so small that he is fragile...just small.

He was nervous the first days with us. He did not do much. Now he is playful and likes other dogs. He jumps on the bed and flips on his back for a belly rub. He likes kids but really just likes following me around. He cries if I get out of the car. He wants to be with me. He seems to like water and runs through it when he can. lol. He is just a dog who needs his forever person and family. I am not interested in someone who wants him for looks alone or a purse dog. I am looking for his soul mate..lol. Someone as loyal as him and will love him the way he loves them. He needs this. He deserves this! Call 530-923-5702.

Please call when you are ready to come. We DO NOT hold for more than the day you are coming. Just keep checking petfinder to check status of availability. We update daily. DO NOT call in advance (days or weeks). They might be adopted by the time you are able to come. Call when you are willing to come and bring your new family member home (the same day) Thank you for understanding

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Spike, a Yuba City Maltese/Shih Tzu dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Maltese/Shih Tzu for sale in Yuba City, or seeking a Maltese/Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Yuba City.

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