Rescue Me ID: 15-04-26-00144Ziggy with video (male)

Yorkie    Age: Puppy

Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Ziggy appears to be a purebred Yorkie who was found wandering the streets quite alone and afraid. He's blossomed into a feisty energetic little guy who is quite the character. He's as smart as a dog gets, and HIGHLY trainable with a tasty food reward. He's 12 lbs of cutie pie, with a 100 lb attitude. Ziggy loves to play with little balls, and is working on learning the fetch game. He came to us quite protective of his favorite toys, but has make good progress in learning to release on command. It would be beneficial to continue this training. When Ziggy barks, it actually sounds like he's saying the word ARF. He knows his ... (Read More)basic commands, and is very capable of learning tricks. He would even make a good agility or obedience working dog. This breed is described as bold, confident, courageous, independent, and mischievous, and THAT describes our little Ziggy. No small children for Ziggy, and only a family who is able to handle this awesome but challenging breed. Ziggy prefers a home with no large dogs. Take a look at Ziggy's video to see more about him. PLEASE CONTACT THE SHELTER IF YOU ARE DRIVING A LONG DISTANCE TO SEE A SPECIFIC ANIMAL, AS THE ADOPTION STATUS CAN CHANGE AT ANY TIME. IT CAN TAKE UP TO A WEEK TO PROCESS AN APPLICATION. (Less)

Animal ID: 13-198Benji (male)

Yorkie    Age: Senior

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Update 3/13/15: Hi everyone! Just want to let everyone know that I'm still on the adoption block. I was adopted just before Thanksgiving but it didn't work out for me. They were a great family but I was very nervous and they felt it would be better for me to return to FM and FD's home. It's been a long winter here in NewEngland and I for one have Cabin fever. Looking forward to long walks, going to the beach and catching those sun beams, oh how I've missed them. Did you know I went to the Dogter for a booster shot and the dreaded thermometer, now that was embarrassing. They weighed me and I am up to 9LBS! The Dogter said that was a good ... (Read More)weight for me. I had some blood work done to make sure my seizure medication was doing it's job. So if your looking for an older Gentleman who loves walks, car rides and sun beams put your application in so we can meet. One more thing FM and FD say my Barkday is just around the corner, you know what that means, party hats, presents and CAKE! I'm going to be 12 yrs. old but don't let that fool you cause I can keep up with my fursiblings and they are 8 and 6 yrs. old. Initial Bio 01/01/14: Benji is a Hurricane Katrina survivor who lost his owner and was taken into rescue. He was found to have heartworm disease and successfully underwent treatment. Benji has a seizure disorder that is easily treated with an inexpensive medication. He does require a limited diet of Prescription dog food Hill's I/D and a spacer ball to be placed in his food bowl to slow his eating. Eating too much and too quickly can bring on a seizure. Benji will need a securely fenced yard because he is a little escape artist. He enjoys basking in the sun and perching on lawn furniture. He loves to be with people and will cuddle up next to them. He loves other dogs, but care must be taken to ensure he doesn't help himself to dog food that other dogs are consuming. He is fearful of loud noises, thunder and lightening and is very fearful of fireworks. Benji enjoys rope toys that are designed to help clean teeth, and he loves playing with a tennis ball. He loves to have his hair brushed with a very soft brush and to be cuddled and patted. He is a very , very good dog and he loves to be loved. He prefers covered cat beds to the traditional dog bed (it helps him feel more secure, particularly during rain storms). He is a little boy who due to his size would be better in a home with no small children. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Yorkie in Massachusetts
    Yorkie Dogs can make good pets in Massachusetts 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 Massachusetts Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Yorkies were bred to hunt rats in the mines of north 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.
