    Odie is a busy boy. He likes to keep busy and doesn't stay still for very long. Odie is a 5 year old Yorkie (Yorkshire Terrier), but he acts much younger. Once he has had plenty of play time, Odie is happy to take a snooze on your lap. Odie came to us when his owner surrendered him because she could not keep up with him. He is a happy and sweet boy who makes quick stops to give you kisses as his way of checking in while he finds things to do. If you have another young, small dog they most likely would be great play buddies. Because Odie is so active he needs a fenced yard to keep him safe as he plays. It would be best if the door used ... (Read More)the most opens into the fenced yard because Odie isn't good at waiting for permission to go out. He is a smart boy who just needs that special person in his life who will give him time and attention to teach him the right things to do.

Animal ID: 14-110Bella (female)

Yorkie    Age: Puppy

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    12/3/2014 Bella has had a rough life so far. After looking further into her issues, it has been noted that she probably has chemical burns on and around her eyes which is why she was in so much pain that she needed morphine. When she first arrived in rescue, Bella wouldn't/couldn't open her eyes. It was thought then that the reason was untreated dry eye. It was recommended that Bella have drops in her eyes 6-8 times a day which was a problem because she wouldn't let anyone near her face. To be able to even attempt eye drops, Bella had to be sedated first. Where as we know this is NOT a good solution long term, it did allow us to treat her ... (Read More)eyes for a36 hours while we waited to get into the Opthamologist. During the appointment with the eye Doctor, it was noted that she had severe corneal ulcers that would probably need surgery to releave the pain and to hopefully restore what vision we could. We were sent home with several medications to try to get the healing process started before surgery - which could have happened today. I dropped Bella off at the vet at 6:45 this AM and just heard back from the Opthamologist. The drops we were able to get in have worked magic with her. The large, severe ulcer in her left eye is 100% healed and the smaller but deeper ulcer in her right eye is 98% healed. This is fantastic news for Bella! We are unsure as to how much she can see, but as long as there is enough light, she can see well. At this time, Bella will not need surgery. The Opthamologist wants to see her every week for a month or so to ensure she remains on track medically. The next step for Bella is to hopefully work with a behaviorist to help her learn how to tolerate the eye drops since she still does have Dry Eye. Bella also will need to work on her manners as her first response to someone new is to charge at them. Because of Bella's suspected abuse, she will need to learn to trust people again. Bella is a very active 10 month old pup who needs that special house to help her regain trust in people again. Once her medical needs are met, she will be available for adoption! If you are looking for a companion who loves walks, treats, a good game of fetch, and her own home, and are willing to work with Bella on her trust issues, Bella is the one for you! (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Yorkie in Iowa
    Yorkie Dogs can make good pets in Iowa 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.
