Shaggy's Story...
Hi guys, I'm shaggy! I am a 6 month old Maltese mix looking for a home! Here's the thing.. I am special needs. I am both blind and deaf, which offers some challenges for sure! I am pretty good at navigating smaller space, but still bump into things, and I am working on the potty training thing, but its tough when I have to go and I can't find my paper. I love snuggling and being cuddled, but I get nervous when you pick me up, and even my foster mom has almost dropped me when I get nervous and squirmy! I'm also a very little guy, only 3.5lbs! This is tough because it stops me from doing stairs, so I need a home with one level. It also means I can get hurt very easily and need a child free home, so far my doggie foster brothers have pretty much ignored me, even when I try and snuggle up! I think I prefer a warm lap anyway! I will need a very understanding and patient home that has a lot of time to help me figure things out, I'm a really great little guy and you should see me play, it's really cute! But I'm going to be special needs forever, so please keep that in mind when thinking about adopting me. It's tough getting used to new places, so I want my next home to be the one I am loved in forever!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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