Augie's Info...

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

Augie's Story...
Augie is a 2-3 year old Maltese mix, about 13 pounds with soft white and honey hair, big soft brown eyes and lots of kisses. Discovered at the pound with little use of his back right leg, it was determined that he had probably been hit by a car, incurring multiple fractures to his pelvis. The wonder dog that Augie is, he is healing well and has regained almost full use of that leg. As more physical activity is being introduced into his life, he clearly loves to take walks on the leash, especially now that the weather is warming. Through all these weeks, this little guy never lost his ever-sweet gentle nature.

Augie has an easy-going personality: affectionate, good-natured, playful, adaptable, exuding joy. Companionship is important to him. He loves to be where his foster mom is or with his foster home dog and cat friends. When his foster mom finally sits, he loves to cuddle up next to her to help her read, watch TV and sleep. He is a good eater, almost house-broken and responds well to verbal directions. Augie relishes love and praise, chewing toys, outdoor walks, food and treats. Although cautious when he first meets people, he quickly trusts them and relaxes into their arms. Outdoors he is more fearful. When Augie gets nervous or very excited seeing other dogs and people, he will bark at them, yet he is making good progress as his confidence builds. We believe he will be good with older children given he is very friendly. While still in the throes of basic training, he is learning commands quickly, just wanting to be a good-good boy.

Augie's adoption fee of $325 includes: vet exams, heartworm test (neg), distemper combo vaccination, bordetella and rabies vaccinations, routine deworming, flea control, numerous x-rays, microchip and neuter.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Augie, a Mt. Prospect Maltese dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Maltese for sale in Mt. Prospect, or seeking a Maltese dog from a breeder in Mt. Prospect.

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