Barry White's Story...
Let me introduce you to Barry White! This handsome & charming gentleman is looking for a long term relationship. He is young, less than two years old, but with the enthusiasm of a puppy and an alluring sense of confidence. He is sure to win your heart!

Barry loves to snuggle, and has got game--he will toss up tennis balls for himself to catch. He also loves to find the biggest toy in the house and wrestle with it like he is master of the universe. He loves his toys so much, the groomer gave him a special toy that he fell in love with there, and they saw how happy it made him they let him take it home. This boy is a charmer for sure!

Barry and Betty showed up on the doorstep of one of our volunteers. They were taken to the shelter in hopes of being microchipped, and of locating their owners. Found dogs ads were placed, but no one claimed these two adorable dogs. The Humane Society of Stanislaus rescued both of them from the shelter at the earliest possible date to put them into a foster home and they are waiting for their fur-ever homes! Although, they came together, either dog would do well if adopted separately--we will offer a discount if adopted together!

Since Barry is a rescue, we are unsure of his true parentage. But looking at many dogs, and his body type (long and low) and his coat type, fairly straight and soft (it doesn't mat easily) we believe he is Shih Tzu and Maltese. A Mal Shi or a Tzu Mal. Barry has some learning to do, but has caught on quickly to everything but the house training, but he is getting better about that every day!

If you love to laugh at doggie antics, and then want to settle in for a good snuggle here is your guy! If you would like to see more pictures he has his own "album" on our facebook page You will see his total transformation, from when he was taken to the shelter to his "groom-over."

Barry will be available after February 10th, he will be neutered, fully vaccinated, and microchipped. His adoption fee is $250, a small price to pay for love and devotion that will last a lifetime!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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