Don’t let Rambo’s name fool you – this sweet male Maltese mix is well past his muscle-man years. Rambo arrived at ARF when his person went into assisted living, but he hasn’t let these changes diminish his good spirits. While on leash, Rambo has a spring in his step that belies his age, and his tail is always wagging. Rambo is a routine-oriented dog, and requires a quiet home without children or other pets. Also, he is protective and may exhibit protective behavior should he perceive a threat to his person.
Potential adopters must be aware that Rambo has lifelong special needs, including daily medications. These include eye medications twice a day and additional daily medications to keep his bowel issues under control. Periodically, these flare up and antibiotics are needed to bring them back under control.
If you are interested in adopting Rambo, please be advised you must speak to Penny or Jenni to discuss Rambo’s special needs in detail; this is required in order to be approved for Rambo’s adoption. If planning a visit to the shelter to meet Rambo, a call ahead of time to determine if Penny or Jeni are on the premises is advised.
All that being said, please know Rambo – in spite of his special needs – has a heart filled with love and like all animals, wants to share that with someone who accepts him just as he is. Rambo’s adoption fee is $90, and includes lab work, current vaccination, and six months’ worth of ProHeart heartworm preventative. Rambo is neutered.
