Rescue Me ID: 16-09-18-00249Molly (female)

Yorkie    Age: Senior

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Molly is an 11 year old, 5 pound sweet, little Yorkie girl. She is being fostered in Nashville, TN. Molly's adoption fee is $150 and includes all vetting (neuter/spay, dental cleaning, immunizations, microchip and chip registration). A Vet reference, personal references, and home visit are required for adoption. You may apply to adopt Molly by going to our website at and completing the adoption application located on our home page. Molly came into United Yorkie Rescue in August. Prior to being with her foster family she lived the majority of her life in a puppy mill, where she was forced to produce litter ... (Read More)after litter of puppies to be sold for profit. Molly was eventually rescued by another small dog rescue, but unfortunately they did not vet her adopters. They decided they didn't want her so she ended up homeless until a nice neighbor took her in. Despite their love for Molly they were unable to give her the time and care they knew she deserved! When Molly arrived at her foster home, she had severe dental disease and a terrible yeast infection on her skin. She has had two dental surgeries and received a lot of medicated baths and anti-fungal treatment. After several more vet visits, her foster family learned that she has two dislocated knees, which causes her to lose her balance, fall, and run into things. Because of her tumultuous life, Molly is very skittish and apprehensive! She loves to cuddle, nap, and eat! (What lady doesn't?) Molly can't be leashed because she is scared of anyone or anything coming near her face, head or body in anyway. It will cause her to cower and squeal. This is the same for diaper and a collar and a harness. She can't bear anything that will have to go around her head or near her face. This could have to do with how long her mouth hurt her and although it has been fixed, she is still very protective of that area. Molly loves treats, loves to eat, and likes to go outside. She needs to go outside for a long time to get her bearings and do her business. She takes her time to leave her safe space to go outside, but once she is out she likes to be there. Since a leash and harness are not an option for Molly, a fenced yard is a must for her. Her foster mom says this is a requirement for adoption. Molly also loves her kennel. It is her safe space. The door is left open all day so she can come and go as she wants. Molly is looking for a family that can offer her love and support! She will need a family that has a lot of patience and experience with dogs from puppy mills. She will need a family that doesn't expect a playful pup, but a loving lap dog! She does get along well with other small dogs who are older and calm. Ones that would not want to play with her, but snuggle. Her foster family will evaluate every applicant on a case-by-case basis to see if she is a good fit with your current pack. Molly cannot go to a family with small children or a home that requires her to use stairs. She will need a family that understands that she is not potty trained and will probably never be totally potty trained, therefore, they will need to be accepting of accidents throughout the day. But it is a small price to pay for the love and gratitude Molly will show you every day. If you feel Molly is a good fit for your family, please fill out an adoption application for her or email her foster mom at If you want to send Molly some love and warm wishes, feel free to donate on her behalf!

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