Rescue Me ID: 16-01-15-00513Oliver (male)

Yorkie Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Oliver is a cute little scruffy guy who enjoys a spa day. He loves nothing more than to sit in his foster mom's lap and get a massage after she brushes his wirey coat. He doesn't mind a bath or nails, either. Oliver came to IDR+ when he was picked up as a stray, and no one came forward for him at the shelter. He is about 4 years old, and he appears to be aappears to be a Yorkie-mix, possibly with some Cairn Terrier in there. He has been doing well in his foster home, but he took a few days to warm up and trust his foster mom. He is like that with everyone new, so she doesn't take it personally. He does like people once he gets to know them, ... (Read More)but don't expect love at first sight. Due to that, he will not be placed with children (or grandchildren). He has made huge improvements since he first arrived, but it's pretty common for smaller dogs to be a little cautious around new people. It's also common for little dogs to take a little longer to get the hang of housebreaking. Again, he has made huge improvements since arriving, but he still has a little way to go. Oliver likes car rides and prefers a harness for leash walks. He doesn't mind his crate, and he likes to bring all of the toys into his safe space. Oliver is great with the other dog in the home and follows her everywhere, but she does get a little tired of him as he like to nip at heels for fun. So a patient dog that will correct him would be ideal. He is living with cats, but does like to chase them. Oliver is learning commands and is more cooperative with a treat.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Yorkie in Illinois
    Yorkie Dogs can make good pets in Illinois 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 Illinois Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Yorkies were bred to hunt rats in the mines of north England. Yorkies used to be much larger but have gradually been bred down to become a miniature breed. Yorkies have been popular ladies' lap dogs for many years.
