Joshua's Story...
Joshua's story is one of loss of hope as he wandered aimlessly through the streets on a cold, snowy night. Who knows why...but a passerby came along, scooped Joshua up and brought him to a warm, safe place. She shaved off his matts and nursed him back to being a healthy l - 1.5 year old Maltese. Joshua looks like nothing but a Maltese (with a terrible haircut) but is a larger version of the breed (or has a little something else in there).....he weighs approximately 15 lbs and has longer legs than your typical dog of that breed.... but the face is unmistakably Maltese. Joshua is described as an incredibly loving and submissive guy...he just wants the world to be a peaceful place. No one ever put time into this adorable guy...therefore whoever makes him a family member will need to house train (shouldn't be too difficult with consistency as he's over a year old) and teach general skills of house behavior. If you have the time and enthusiasm for training...you will end up with an exceptional Maltese with a great temperament. Joshua seems to love everyone but we envision him in an adult-only home where he's truly a member of the family and gets to go along on family adventures. Joshua is a non-shedding pup so periodic grooming is necessary for a healthy coat.

Joshua is being fostered in Denver. Applications are currently being accepted for this exceptional companion.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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