Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Vaccinations Current 

     This animal is available to licensed rescue groups only.  Please do not enquire unless with a licensed rescue group. Sophia is very loyal and affectionate. We love her but she is no longer happy with a house full of kids under the age of 9. She loves to play fetch believe or not! She also is very good in a kennel. We are sad to have to let her go but we know she will be much happier in a quitter environment.

Yorkie    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids)

    Tut is a about 4-5 years old and is a purebred Yorkie. He does not have papers. He needs a home as an only dog. He is not good with young kids, but would be good with a teenager or adult (He is aggressive to and bites infants/toddlers and should not be around them). He needs an owner who will pay attention to only him. He loves to sit on your lap or sleep by you. He wears a belly band as he is territorial and marks on furniture, so he will need someone who is patient and can work with him on this. Adoption will require no sale or re-homing contract as we want him to have a forever home.

Animal ID: 15-005Laddie (FKA Happy) (female)

Yorkie    Age: Young Puppy

Health: Vaccinations Current 

    Initial Bio 01/12/15: Laddie (FKA Happy) has had a rough life so far. He belonged to someone who could not keep him due to financial hardship. Family members stepped up to take Laddie, but the day he arrived at their home he had a horrible fall from their 2nd floor balcony. It is a miracle he survived the fall, but he did completely fracture his left rear leg. The cost of surgery was quoted as $4,000 so the family asked for our help in giving Laddie the life he deserves. Laddie is working on house training and is a very smart and sweet puppy. Laddie will see our vet Wednesday night and they will determine whether or not surgery will correct ... (Read More)the break or if amputation is the best bet for this little cutie. Please keep Laddie in your thoughts and prayers in the coming days. Donations can be made on our website (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Yorkie in Ohio
    Yorkie Dogs can make good pets in Ohio 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 Ohio 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 have been popular ladies' lap dogs for many years.
