Cruz's Story...
Meet Cruz...

Cruz is a 3-year-old Maltese Mix. No one is really sure what he is mixed with...maybe some Bichons..? Poodle?? Regardless, he is a CUTIE!!

Cruz has had a tough start in life. He has already experienced 3 owners in his short lifetime. His first owner kept him in the garage while she was at work for very long days, generally 12+ hours a day!! Her second home was a bit better until the new owner got a boyfriend... Well, that boyfriend was mean!! He actually abused poor Cruz and even kicked him off of a balcony, resulting in a broken paw. His owner was unwilling to dump the boyfriend (stupid girl!!), so she gave Cruz away to her girlfriend.

This owner loves Cruz ...she took really good care of him...she spoiled him rotten... !! He has every toy/bed/crate/clothes you could dream of!! Unfortunately she is a young girl and her life is changing and she now has a full time job. She realizes that Cruz being home alone all day is not good for him, so she has decided to put him up for adoption.

Cruz is a sweet, loving, playful little guy. He has shown no side effects from his broken paw (other than it turns in cute!!), which happened 2 years ago.

Cruz would do best with someone who has a lot of experience with animals. He has had a very hard life in the last 3 years, and needs someone he can trust and someone willing to spend time with him and give him a FOREVER home.

Cruz comes with a bed/crate/toys and even clothes!!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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