Yorkie    Age: Young Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Initial Bio 03/20/15: My name is Chloe, I'm 4.5 years old and 3lb. born Nov. 24th 2010. My foster momma sometimes calls me Peanut or Angel, which she says is because I'm such a little thing and sweet as can be. I'm really glad I was rescued by United Yorkie Rescue, see I was left at a shelter by my family when they couldn't care for me anymore. I don't know what happened way back in Oct. 2014, I don't remember anymore, but one day I just couldn't walk, my back legs didn't work and I couldn't feel my toes. I couldn't hold my bladder or my bowels either all of a sudden, and the Dr's didn't know why. They gave me some medicine but it didn't ... (Read More)help. I'm a pretty spunky girl and wasn't going to be kept down, so I kept trying and slowing I was able to start walking a little bit again, but it seems there are other things wrong with me which was making it hard, I have luxating patellas in both my back legs. My left knee is really bad so I usually tuck it up under me and kind of hop around, but after awhile my other leg gets tired and I need to rest. Both of my legs have atrophied because of this. Sometimes I can get my knees to lock, which allows me to walk and run almost normal! I'm pretty fast when I want to be! But, they say I need surgery to fix my legs, so I can walk and run and not have pain as I age. At some point I may not be able to walk anymore and I love running in the yard, following my foster momma around the house and playing. She says I'm like her little shadow. I get along well with my foster brother and sisters, I like to stay with them and sometimes play too. I like to play with your hand by gently mouthing, and then smiling to show you how happy I am. I don't know if I like big dogs because they would be SO much bigger than me and I haven't been around them, and I'm not sure about kids because they could hurt me since I'm so small. I haven't been around cats, but I'm such a happy go lucky girl they'd probably be ok with me. Please don't think I'm picky, I just need to be in a safe environment where I won't get hurt because of my size, or because I like to run outside. I try hard to go potty outside like I know I should, I go when we all go outside for potty breaks, but I just can't hold it because of whatever happened to my spine, so foster momma puts these little things on me she calls my doggy panties, and I wear them all the time since I can't control my bladder anymore. She changes my little pad inside every few hours, I stand still so good for her while she puts it on me. Sometimes I have poo accidents though when she isn't watching, because I can't control things and they just come out. She hasn't gotten mad or frustrated at all with me, which I'm so glad of because sometimes it happens when I'm on the couch or sitting on her rug, and then she has to clean up after me. I want to make it stop, I start spinning in circles and look at her worried afraid she may yell at me, but she never does, she calms me down and cleans me up. I'm a good eater, I love my breakfast and dinner and if you wanna give me treats I would love that too! My foster momma when she first got me gave me a grain free high quality food that was really tiny for my size and helped me transition, then she slowly started giving me whole food with my kibble, which I love! Momma says it's cooked ground turkey and hamburger with cooked sweet potato, squash, and green beans. Sometimes she adds fruits like strawberries or blueberries, and she even adds a little yogurt smoothie to it so it helps keep my system working good since I have my bowel issues. It seems to really help! I really want to find my forever home and be loved again by my own patient and understanding family who won't get mad at me for making messes sometimes, or needing baths more often than what they call a 'normal', whatever that is. I love snuggling, and giving kisses, and sleeping in the same room with you in my kennel. Hopefully someone who's maybe home all day, with time for my extra care, will come along soon and make me their forever angel. I promise to give a lifetime of kisses and love and joy to you in return! Are you my forever family? (Less)

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