A major escape artist which is why Mambo was surrendered to the shelter, this cute guy needs a secure high fence that he can't climb over. Otherwise Mambo a two-year-old, fifteen pound, Maltese, is a cheerful cuddler! Mambo would be fine with mature kids ten and over, we worry about smaller kids leaving a gate open through which Mambo will bolt! Mambo is good with other dogs, and Mambo is good with cats. He is a snuggle bug. Loves to play with other dogs but not excessive about it. We are working on transitioning him from pee pads. He is very easy going. Mambo is heartworm positive, but we are covering his treatment, this is not a deal breaker especially not for a cute fellow like Mambo. Absolutely must have six foot, secured fenced yard, that Mambo can't climb or dig out of. This not negotiable unless you live in a townhouse that has a barrier to his bolting through your front door! Apply at crisisdogsnc.org. We reply to completed applications only, not to calls, not to emails, not to instant or private Facebook messages. Excellent vet references and a virtual home visit required. Your prior or current dog must be on year-round heartworm prevention. We prefer a fenced yard, but this is not required for all our dogs. We transport by land or air whenever possible.
