TANGO's Info...

I am already neutered, purebred, up to date with shots, not good with kids, and good with dogs.

TANGO's Story...
TANGO is a swift little guy, 7 yrs old, 7 lbs, and ready to dance his way right into your heart ..... and definitely onto your lap! He was living with his human mom and canine daughter Sugah and pal, Peppa, until his mom was evicted from her home and they became homeless :(( From what we understand, Tango has been shuffled around a bit in the past two years...not because of him, but because his humans have had problems. Now, LHH has been trusted to find Tango a home. Tango's teeth were a mess, and after two dentals the vet decided many of them had to be extracted. But....the good news is Tango still has 6 teeth left and he is a happy camper...with good breath now!! He is a little on the needy side, but he is not a yappy boy....he is very smart....has even been in a few rap videos!!! He doesn't particularly care for younger kids, and we think he would do best in a home where he gets a lot of attention and someone is home a good share of the time!! He's become quite feisty lately!!! A retired couple or mature home might be ideal....where he could be your one and only...or maybe with another female small dog. He needs to feel safe and does frighten easily. His mom said he was housebroken, but we believe you'll have to refresh his memory! He can be a little marker...but he does calm down (now that he has been neutered). He's a good boy and just needs to be loved. He would likely do well in any home where he is not left alone. Our website is updated daily. Please do not apply for this dog unless your home fits the specified criteria.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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