Hi, I'm Nate. I’m adopted!
Poodle Maltese | Young | Male | Small
Nate was a return adoption to a local shelter after his former owner could no longer care for him. He is a sweet, happy, and social little guy who likes meeting people and other dogs. He has also met one cat and seemed to be OK with him. He hasn’t met any kids yet, but due to his size, we think he would do best with kids over 10 years.
We have only had him a few days so far, but he seems to be housebroken. He sometimes will bark in his crate when you first put him in and leave him, but appears to settle down pretty quickly.
Due to a lot of matting in his fur when we got him, we had to shave most of him down. So he isn’t looking his best right now, but it will grow back. His adopter will need to brush him regularly and have him groomed to prevent him from getting into that condition again.
Nate is looking for an adopter to share his whole life with this time. Is that you?

NOTE: We are an all volunteer group and do not operate a shelter. All of our animals are in foster homes. We are unable to place our animals outside of the Baltimore/DC area.
Nate is expecting to attend the next adoption show, February 27 at the Bowie PetSmart from 12:30 to 2, although there's always a possibility that plans will need to change at the last minute
