Gherkin

A Male Maltese-x presently Adopted

Name’s Gherkin …. and I am definitely of the sweet variety.   Best guess is that I am approximately 8 years old; the reason we have to guess is my family did not come looking for me while I was at Animal Control. That doesn’t make me over the hill, I’m spry, happy, and lovable as could be!  I enjoy meeting new people but ask that you take things just a bit slow until I trust you. I am looking for someone who can put the finishing touches on toilet training – patience and consistency will help.  Insofar as kids are concerned, I would do better with the older category who will treat a fellow with tolerance and respect.  I do get along with other dogs but would be equally happy as your one and only.  If you are looking for a canine companion, I can arrange that —just give me your time, patience, and love in return.  I want to this loneliness I feel with the happiness a forever home of my own!  Can you be of assistance?  Please fill in the Adoption Form and ask for Gherkin.

 

You will be contacted for an interview only if you meet all the criteria and could potentially be a suitable match.Animatch does retain applications for two months and you could be contacted within that period for another dog or puppy.  There is no need to complete more than one application.  Please understand that every decision Animatch makes is with the dog’s best interest in mind.

Am I ready for a dog?

Adopting a dog is a life-changing event--or should be. A dog needs lots of time and attention and you've got to be there every day to give it. So, BEFORE filling out the Animatch adoption form, find out whether you're ready for a dog, or would be happier with a goldfish instead: Fill this great questionnaire now to find out if you are ready for a dog.
