My name is Albert. I am a very sweet 10-pound, 10-year-old male Maltese/Poodle mix who wants to be someone’s companion and lap dog. I am deaf and have some cloudiness in one eye that may affect my vision somewhat but that doesn’t keep me from wagging my tail and being my pleasant self when I greet people. My legs are a little weak, probably due to my age, but I also still occasionally get the zoomies and will run around as though I think I am a puppy again. I love people but I tend to feel threatened around other pets, so I need a home with no other pets. Since my deafness can make me startle more easily, there should also probably be no children under 12 years old. I can get anxious and bark and cry when I can’t see my people, so my perfect home is one where someone is home most of the time (or can take me with them when they go) and does not live in an apartment where I might disturb neighbors if I am left alone. Otherwise, I am very quiet and content just sleeping, being a cuddle bug, or getting belly rubs, and I will happily follow you around the house. I am great at sleeping through the night as long as I am in a place where I can see that my person or people are nearby. I am trained to go on potty pads but will also go outside in a fenced-in area or on a leash as well. If you are looking for a constant companion and think you have the perfect forever home for me, please contact SBRET. I have been neutered and microchipped, I’m up-to-date with my vaccinations, and I’m on heartworm and flea prevention. My adoption fee is $100.
