Desi's Story...
Sweet Desi is ready to go to a forever home!He needs a quiet environment (maybe even a single, patient owner), and would do best in a home with no young children as he is still learning to feel safe and tends to cling to one person and growl at others who approach. He does well with other dogs and did not care when he was licked by a curious kitty twice his size! Once Desi is in a stable home and is comfortable, we think he will be a great little guy! Desi DOES bark when left alone, which would not be ideal for apartment/condo living. We think he will calm down once he truly feels safe. He appears to be pee pad trained and also potties outside, but has had a few indoor accidents, so he needs patience and time to adjust.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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