Animal ID: 15-114Benji (male)

Yorkie Mix    Age: Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Updated Bio 11-16-15 Benji is the sweetest 11 pound, 6.5 year old boy. He is being fostered in Mobile, AL. Our Benji Boy says he is more than ready for his furever home. He is in his prime (6-7 years old) of his life. He has Yorkie Love to give in abundance. This former street kid lost an eye before he came to UYR, but he says the look only makes him that much sexier. It certainly has not dulled his Yorkie attitude! His FM will be happy to answer any questions you may have about making this brave boy you'r' forever and ever pup! ' 'E-mail Updated bio 10-21-15 Benji is an amazing 6.5-year-old, 11 ... (Read More)pound sweet, sweet boy. He is being fostered in Mobile, AL Life is GOOD for this former street dude. Benji loves being in a home where he has plenty of friends to hang with. No street corners now, just a cozy corner of the bed and sunny corners of the fenced backyard, where he LOVES singing the song of his people to the neighborhood dogs. They have a chorus going! Benji's eye surgery went well, and he is all healed up. Having one eye has not slowed him down. %BD%BD%BD'%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BDH%BD%BD%BD'%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD'%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BDe is a bit cautious about jumping DOWN, he is still confident about jumping UP - steps are no problem for this guy. Benji sure appreciates meal times and wishes they would come around more often. He loves his people and his doggie roommates, and prefers dogs his size. Bigger dogs seem to intimidate him. Because of his vision, he has a hard time judging how near he is to things, and sometimes does not move out of the way quickly enough. He would do best in a home with older kids who would understand they must look out for him. %BD%BD%BD'%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BDH%BD%BD%BD'%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BDe would be their best buddy. Being a former street dog, Benji's street-cred has made it difficult for him to be house-trained, but %BD%BD%BD'%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BDhis foster parents%BD%BD%BD'%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD are working on it. For now %BD%BD%BD'%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BDthey%BD%BD%BD'%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD are using belly bands when he is in the house, but he prefers to be outside anyway. He is just a nature loving guy. . . until it comes to bedtime - then he is more than happy to sleep in a nice warm secure bed with you! No accidents there! Benji struts his curly tail like he KNOWS how cute it is, and he is hoping someone is so enchanted with his smooth good looks that they will want to give him a furever home! You can contact Benji's Foster Mom at %BD%BD%BD'%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD %BD%BD%BD' and she will be happy to tell you all about this smart, loving, soon to be furry guy! Benji had to be shaved down when he was first rescued from the street because he was surely a mess, but his hair is growing back quite handsomely, as you can see! Please consider giving this fellow a forever home. You won't be sorry. Updated Bio 9/26/15 Benji is a 6.5 year old, 11 pound Yorkie boy being fostered in Mobile AL. Benji is enjoying his life at Foster Mom's! He has many fur friends to keep him entertained, (only dogs here -not sure how entertaining cats would be!) and he feels soooo much better since having his dental (he did have to have a few removed, but he never complained). Benji came to UYR with an empty right eye socket and our Vet advised stitching the lid closed as the open socket was just inviting troubles with infections so Benji has just had that completed and is healing nicely. This little dude is a 'Take-Charge!' kind of guy! He is not shy about barking his orders to be let in or let out. He most definitely dislikes being in a kennel! Not for this former street-kid! He will try to tell you that you NEVER feed him enough, and he will telepath his need for treats to you! Benji is only still when he sleeps, which he does curled up at Foster Mom's feet. With other fur-kids in the home Foster Mom's lap is almost always occupied but Benji waits his turn to share and accepts that. Because he has just one eye his perception is a little off and he is leery of jumping down from the higher places (like the bed) but has no trouble with UP! Benji loves to lap sit, get belly rubs, being picked up & cuddled, and go for walks. He does not get out of the way of moving objects very quickly since he only sees from his one eye, so to avoid accidents we feel he would be happier in a home with older kids who would watch out for him. Benji is catching on to house training, but he has to go frequently, so for now he is wearing belly bands while inside. Benji is a sweet, lovable, highly adaptable, street-smart little man, ready to walk right into your heart and home! If you think you would be a perfect forever home for Benji please apply to adopt him! (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Yorkie in Alabama
    Yorkie Dogs can make good pets in Alabama if they match your IifestyIe. The Yorkshire Terrier is a cute, spunky little dog with a true Terrier temperament. Yorkies can be dog aggressive and wary of strangers. Yorkshire Terriers are loving and devoted to their people and do fine with children who respect them. Yorkies respond well to firm, consistent obedience training but may require patience when housebreaking. They do fine in an apartment but need to play and be taken on a daily walk.

lnteresting Yorkie Trivia Low-Cost Alabama Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Yorkies were bred to hunt rats in the mines of north England. Piebald Yorkies came about by an accident of genetics in 1984 and are now considered a separate breed, the Biewer Yorkie. Yorkies used to be much larger but have gradually been bred down to become a miniature breed.
