Tessa's Story...
This is the story of 4 little furballs. Spencer, Sebastian, Seymour & little sis Tessa. WE are unsure what they are exactly, besides ADORABLE> They were rescued from a hoarder house in southern missouri. They were thin, covered with fleas and dirt. It took 2 baths to see these puppies were white. They have been in rescue a few weeks now and are doing great, They are gaining weight, eating well, and are very very playful. The puppies are being treated for sarcoptic mange as another dog from the same situation tested positive for it. The mange is easily treated and will not leave any long term effects on the puppies. Spencer is the big brother, Seymore is the trouble maker, Sebastian is the scrappy little brother and sweet Tessa is the little baby sister. They will be spayed/neutered soon and soon after that be ready to be placed in their new homes.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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