The Santa Cruz SPCA is filled with friendly fluffies needing forever homes! By fluffies, we mean miniature poodles, Bichon Frises, and Maltese mixes in particular. You want a female? We’ve got Beauty, a 3-year-old Poodle, Chablis, a 1-year-old Malti-Poo, Lady, a 3-year-old Poodle, Ribbon, a 2-year-old Poodle, Shell, a 4-year old Poodle, and finally Cupcake, a 5-year-old Maltese Mix.
You want a male? Come meet Fritz, a 1-year-old Poodle, or Sully, a 1-year-old Bichon Frise, or Spritzer, a 4-year-old Poodle.
If you are looking for a mellow pup whose sole desire is so cuddle and snuggle than you must come meet Beauty, Cupcake, or Spritzer. These three actively seek out a lap that needs warming. All three are social with other dogs but gravitate toward the people in their lives and thrive off that human attention and affection.
If you’ve kids or a dog who likes to play and you want a fun dog to match their energy, Ribbon, Fritz, Shell, and Sully would the F in fun! All four of these dogs positive, happy, and social energy. They love other dogs, people, toys and just plain having a good time.
If you want a bit of both of those worlds than Chablis, and Lady would be your pick! These two have a great blend of love and liveliness, affection and amusement, warmth and wonder. They have the energy for long walks along with the need for long snuggles as well.
All nine of these wonderful dogs are non-shedding breeds that have “hair” instead of “fur.” While you won’t need a lint-roller, you WILL need a trustworthy groomer to see your adopted dog on a bi-monthly basis to give them the hair-care they will need. This is an added expense you should take into consideration. Fluffies of this variety are best suited as housedogs with regular access to the outdoors for potty but do not do well being left outdoors for extended periods.
If one of these white wonders sparks your interest, we urge you to come take a look. It could be love at first fluff. If you would like to help animals like this group of orphaned friends or if you’d like to help replenish the Second Chance Fund to help pay for emergency surgical procedures, please consider donating to the Santa Cruz SPCA.
