|Rescue Me ID: 15-04-23-00086Charlie (female)|
Sex: Female Breed: Mix - her papers say she's a 'Chorkie', chihuahua/terrier mix. Her fur is very coarse and ranges from black to tan to white with a little bit of gray speckled throughout. Age: 7.5 years old Size: ~14lbs Location: Lynnwood, WA Family History: she was adopted via Craigslist by a family when she was a puppy. She lived with this family for over 7 years before they surrendered her to a local animal shelter. Original family said they surrendered her due to financial issues. She was adopted out to another family and lived with them for a few months before being returned to the shelter because she play-bit their very young daughter. She lived at the shelter for several months before we adopted her. The shelter was very clear and upfront about the fact that she needed to not live with small children. She is housebroken, up to date on all shots, has a clean bill of health from recent vet visits, and is spayed (though I suspect she's had puppies in the past, so I'm not sure when she was spayed). Charlie is very smart, knows lots of tricks (including high five!), super funny, affectionate, curious, loving, attentive, and loyal. Her favorite things are playing with toys (she likes to stack them on top of each other in a big pile), sleeping next to her humans under blankets, and going on car rides. She's got a funny bark, it doesn't sound like what you would expect from a smaller dog, it's kind of deep and wheezy. She's crate trained and also a great walking companion. She is unphased by touching of sensitive areas (face/ears/feet) for grooming, and in fact loves being brushed. She loves to hide and bury things and often times we'll find toys and/or food shoved under pillows or blankets throughout the house. I would recommend she not live with small children -- she nipped at the toes of a young girl that was visiting our house. However she also spent hours laying near the same child and was very loving and affectionate, so I don't feel that the nip was indicative of true aggression, but perhaps a reaction to something else. Regarding the play-bite she was previously surrendered for, I can attest to the fact that Charlie plays hard sometimes. You can ask her to 'play nicely' and she will calm down, but she gets very excited and then tends to get rough, which is what I assume happened. I think she would do well with older kids or teenagers in the home. Charlie is the kind of dog that would probably benefit the most from a household where she is the only dog. While she gets along with other dogs, she definitely wants to be the center of attention and wants to be close to her owner(s) all the time. Charlie is a great dog and we are very sad to rehome her, but our resident dog does not get along with Charlie. The resident dog wants to be close to us, lots of attention, etc and has a tendency to get territorial/generally upset with Charlie. She has lived with cats and did okay, though she at times showed that terrier prey drive and would chase the cat until it jumped on a counter/table/etc. (Less)

Hi! My name is Kaida and I am the cutest little lap dog you will ever see! I am a female dachshund and yorkie mix - some people think that makes me a 'dorkie'. I am looking for a family and home of my own - could that home be with you? I would love a family or single person to call my own. I am a sweet little dog (only about five pounds) and I do pretty well with all people and all animals, though I do take a while to warm up. I would do best with a family that will be patient with me and allow me plenty of time to adjust to a new environment since I've lived most of my life at Valhalla Rescue. I'm still learning how to be a brave dog, and I'm gaining confidence every day. I'm working on crate training and housebreaking, and am almost there on both! I will be spayed, micro-chipped, and up to date on all my vaccinations before I go home with my new family. My adoption fee is $300. If you think you might have the right home for me, please visit the Valhalla Canine Rescue website at www.valhallarescue.org/ourdogs/adoptable and fill out an adoption application. My adoption fee allows Valhalla Rescue to continue to provide care and medical treatment (including spay/neuter services) for dogs like me while we look for our forever homes. This fee also helps cover the ongoing costs of caring for less adoptable dogs who require longer stays in the shelter, or more advanced medical treatment before finding their forever homes. THANK YOU FOR SAVING THE LIFE OF A RESCUE DOG! (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 15-03-18-00488Winston (male)|
This darling boy was recently rescued from a puppy mill, where he was being used as a breeder. He is approx 5 yrs old and until recently he lived his entire life in a barn with only wood shavings on which to sleep. This very sweet boy was such a mess! He is now clean, current on all vaccines, neutered and has recently had a full dental cleaning. He lives in a wonderful foster home, sleeping in a warm bed and is learning how to live indoors... in other words, he's not yet completely potty trained so he does wear a belly band to make sure he has no accidents when inside. He's starting to understand what is expected of him and soon we're sure he'll be fully house trained. He's a bit shy but warms up very quickly because he just loves to cuddle. Winston is a tiny guy, weighing barely over 7lbs. He loves other dogs and he does well with cats, too. Because of his tiny size and somewhat shy behavior, an adult only home will be best. (Less)

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