Rescue Me ID: 14-09-29-00939Staley Bear (male)

Yorkie    Age: Puppy

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Staley Bear is a 1 year old Yorkie that was surrendered by his owner to a shelter in Keokuk, IA. He kept getting sick and was grossly thin, so the shelter staff reached out to us on his behalf thinking he was just stressed in the shelter setting. We transported him to us and had him seen by our vet right away thinking he had a blockage. Unfortunately, the news was far worse than that. He has a condition called Canine Mega Esophagus. It is a condition where the esophagus is so enlarged that food and water pool in the esophagus instead of making it to the stomach. The dog basically starves to death if left untreated. There is no surgery to fix ... (Read More)this issue. Instead, there is only maintenance care which requires a Bailey Chair, medication and a special diet. AHeinz57 Pet Rescue & Transport believes in caring for all our dogs as if they were our own and providing all necessary vet care if quality of life can be achieved. We believe Staley Bear can have a happy, healthy life if we can get him on a good maintenance program. We are working on finding that perfect combination of medication and special diet. We are getting him a Bailey Chair that will hold him upright when he eats so his food and water make it to his tummy. Staley Bear is in a foster home with a wonderful foster mom that has joined a Canine Mega Esophagus support group on Facebook and is learning everything she can about the condition so that we can properly care for him. In the meantime, he is seeing specialists and the bills are mounting. His chances of being adopted are slim, but we will keep him and care for him as long as he needs us, whether that means weeks, months or years, we will love him and provide the best care possible.

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.

lnteresting Yorkie Trivia Low-Cost Iowa 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.
