Rescue Me ID: 17-01-30-00143Scruffy (male)

Yorkie Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Scruffy! Approx. 2 years old Yorkie/Terrier Mix Approx. 15 lbs Scruffy is just that, a scruffy little dog! His foster family calls him Otter on account of him looking so much like a sea otter when he's laying on his back. This little man came to us from TN where life before rescue was obviously rough. Scruff has some 'battle wounds' from what was probably an ongoing war with fleas! With the tender love and care he is receiving now, those old wounds are healing and a new little personality is emerging. Scruffy is a young, playful, energetic pup. He loves to play with the other dogs in his foster home and would certainly appreciate ... (Read More)having another small dog in his forever home to romp and play with. Scruffy is crate trained and housebroken, though like any small dog, he needs frequent potty breaks and would do well in a home where someone is home most of the time to let him out. It is apparent that Scruffy was never leash trained as he consistently ends up winding you up or going between your legs. He is learning quickly though and loves to be outside on a harness and leash for walks. Scruffy is often underfoot in the home as well. As mentioned before, Scruffy is battling with dry and itchy skin which is probably due to years of neglect from flea bites and poor nutrition. Scruffy is benefiting from a high quality premium diet and nutritional supplements such as coconut oil. Benadryl is also a consistent help to itch free afternoons! He would appreciate a family who is willing to continue to support his road to itch-free skin! Scruffy would do well in an active household and would make an ideal small family dog. He is eager to please you and loves being rubbed and scratched and pet. He loves everyone he meets! Scruffy loves to chew on bones, antlers, horns and toys. He is very good about knowing what he can and can't play with. If you would like to meet this playful little guy, please request an application! Our standard adoption fee is $295 cash or check and $300 credit card ($5 processing fee). It includes spay/neuter when age appropriate at our participating vets, age appropriate core vaccinations, fecal testing, deworming, flea and tick preventative,1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, and micro-chipping. We must have an application, conduct a phone interview, and meet your entire family to approve an adoption. Please email for an application or additional details. Please note that the breeds and sizes posted in this biography are educated best guesses and are not guaranteed. Please consider becoming a foster home while you search for your new best friend. We need foster homes - pounds are overflowing with puppies and adult dogs that are at-risk and need help. We can only rescue as many as we have foster home commitments. Fostering is a rewarding experience for your family. (Less)

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Buddy is fostered in Canton Illinois 61520 through United Yorkie Rescue To find out more about Buddy, contact his foster mamma through the question/inquiry link. Buddy is a 12 year old 11 lb sweet, quiet Yorkie boy. He came to United Yorkie Rescue in August 2016 because his owner has cancer & can no longer care for him. He really likes people and other dogs and he loves to eat! He had been in boarding for 10 days when he came to foster mamma and seemed so thankful and relieved to be in a warm comfy home. He ate dinner of chicken & veggies quickly, and then cleaned up the scraps the other pups didn't eat. Buddy ... (Read More)would make a great couch buddy! He's doing well although he has a heart murmur that doesn't require medication, he doesn't like to be fussed over too much. He's a very sweet boy and would do best in a home with no children, and a fenced yard. He doesn't walk well on a leash, preferring to explore the yard at his own pace. This laid back boy can't wait to find his forever home to settle into, is it with you? To complete an application, go to: (Less)

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.
