PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE BIO ON THIS DOG BEFORE REQUESTING AN APPLICATION. MANY OF OUR DOGS HAVE STRICT REQUIREMENTS FOR THEIR ADOPTION. INQUIRIES WILL NOT BE ANSWERED IF THE BASIC REQUIREMENTS FOR OSO ARE NOT MET. Oso was extremely popular when listed earlier, but the right home for him has not materialized. He has two main requirements that we will not budge on: a fenced yard to run in AND another doggie friend in the house that is his age/size and play style. Please read the rest of the bio for more information. 1 year old male Maltese/Chihuahua mix, about 5 pounds. Oso is a sweet, shy boy who is very cuddly and loving. He does great with dogs of all sizes, but he has never met a cat. He is quiet but will alert bark at times. Unlike other hyper and jumpy puppies, Oso is gentle and just loves to be pet all day. He loves his crate, and stays in it calmly and quietly throughout the night. Although he is a Maltese mix, he does shed. He would prefer a home with dogs his size and kids over age 13. What a good boy! Adoption contract and fee applies. All adoptable dogs can be met at adoption events hosted every weekend. For a list of scheduled events go to: https://www.facebook.com/SmidgetRescue/events . Smidget Rescue is not a shelter, and dogs cannot be seen at the Rescue location. All dogs are fostered throughout the Puget Sound area and are brought to the events where they can be met by prospective adopters. Additional pictures of adoptable dogs can be seen at: https://www.facebook.com/SmidgetRescue/photos_stream?tab=photos_albums. All adoptable dogs are spayed or neutered at 6 months of age or older, and always before being placed in their new homes. APPLICATIONS CAN BE OBTAINED BY EMAIL ONLY. Adoption process includes application, meet & greet, home visit and reference check. Email Jamie at [email protected] or click on the CONTACT link on this page. PLEASE DOUBLE CHECK YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS BEFORE SENDING. We get a fair number of incorrect emails and Jamie is not able to contact potential adopters. Notice: We do not ship dogs out of state. If you live within a five-hour radius of Seattle, WA, (such as Portland, Vancouver B.C., etc.), we can arrange for a home visit. If your home seems like a great fit for the dog you would like to adopt, you must then drive to meet the dog at one of our weekend events or at the fosters home.
