Rescue Me ID: 16-12-03-00190Gandalf (male)

Yorkie Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet adoptable Gadalf (affectionately called Oliver in his foster home) - a young pup with an energetic personality contained in a small dog body! Gandalf is about 1.5 years old and we believe him to be a yorkie/chihuahua mix. Gandalf is a wonderful companion who loves to play tug of war with his toys and engage in never-ending games of fetch with the tennis balls. He loves to cuddle anywhere, but he would prefer cuddling in his owner's lap. He has a cute habit of gently 'pawing' you when he wants scratches on his head or any part of his body, and only wants to be loved. In the short time he has stayed with his foster parents, we've learned ... (Read More)he thrives on belly rubs and back scratches. Gandalf is potty trained and is obedient on a leash. However, it has been determined he is anxious around big dogs and will get easily excited or frightened when in close proximity to them. But this may be easily overcome as he becomes more social in a playful environment! He is not a big barker, and for the most part is pretty quiet, which can be a plus for those who live in apartments / condos. Gandalf knows commands such as 'no', 'come here' and 'stop', but could use a little more disciplined training. Overall he is a wonderful little dog who only wants love and is very eager to please his people. If you are interested, please email! (Less)

Animal ID: 16-136Buddy (male)

Yorkie    Age: Senior

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
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.

lnteresting Yorkie Trivia Low-Cost Illinois Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Yorkies were bred to hunt rats in the mines of north England. Yorkies were probably developed by Scotsmen working in Yorkshire, 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.
