Windy's Info...

Windy's Story...
Windy is a two-year-old Maltese/Shih Tzu mix with a dashing coat of black and white. This little guy wants very much to find a loving home where he can snuggle and hang out. He is an ideal size for an apartment living. Here's a bit of trivia on his breed: the word Shih Tzu means "lion" although most dogs of this breed are sweet and playful. Although most Americans commonly pronounce the Shih Tzu as SHEET-zoo, the actual Chinese translation is "sure-ds" (the "ds" pronounced the same as the "ds" in "words"). The Maltese was once known as "Ye ancient dogge of Malta," and the breed has been an aristocrat of the canine world for over 28 centuries. Windy is neutered, up-to-date on his shots and will be microchipped before adoption.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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