March 2013. I would like to introuduce myself. My name is BEAN. I am 2 yrs and 9 mos old and weigh 5 pounds. For reasons I do not understand, I was surrendered to a shelter and was rescued by these wonderful people. I do have some issues such as not liking cats at all, children or large dogs.
I love taking walks. I love to sleep and snuggle under the covers of my foster mom's bed and I love to be carried around and be spoiled. I must be an only dog and I will love you forever. My foster mom is working on my issues and is teaching me patience.
I am neutered, have had all my vaccinations and my teeth are pretty good. If you think that we could be a "furever" family, please put my name on the application "Bean" and I will be your faithful pal.
My adoption donation is $300 and that includes the microchip.
Bentley is a 3 year old male Yorkie that came down with a severe case of pancreatitis. His owners were not able to afford the veterinary care that he needed, so he was surrendered into the care of Yorkshire Terrier National Rescue.
We have gotten him the medical care he desperately needed. He has finished his treatment and is doing very well. He has adjusted to his foster home and foster siblings quickly. He loves to eat. He must eat a low calorie food we get from the vet. The daily cost of his special food is nominal and he only has to stay on this food for one year.
Bentley is full of energy. He will yap at other dogs and men, but never women. He should not go to a home with small children. He is housebroken and does not require a lot of attention.. He rests during the day on the sofa and sleeps very well at night. He does great on the leash, but should have a yard to run and play in as he doesn’t like men and he will fuss when they approach him.
Bentley is about 10.5 pounds, microchipped, neutered and up to date on all his vaccinations. Please fill out an adoption application now and list Bentley as your choice for your companion.
Adoption donation $525 includes microchip. Bentley is being fostered in San Marcos, CA.
Scrappy is a spry Yorkie mix of about 3 years old. He was picked up as a stray and even though the owners were contacted, he was never picked up. He was rescued from Doggie Jail on his last day there, saving him from an early and untimely demise. He contracted kennel cough from being at the shelter so long, and it turned into pneumonia. The poor little guy has been through a lot, but he has bounced back and is now his loving and happy self.
He has been neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. He weighs about 12 pounds. Scrappy is a sturdy active fellow and would make a great family dog. He needs a yard to run off some of his energy and a dog buddy would be great when the family has to be away from home.
Please consider making this scamp a member of your family. Fill out an application now and list Scrappy as your choice.
Adoption fee $600.00 including microchip. Scrappy is being fostered in Orange, CA.
Miss Tilly is a sweet and docile Yorkie that we suspect spent her years up to now breeding litter after litter of puppies in someone's back yard. She is 8 years old and 5.1 lbs. Once she outlived her 'usefulness' she was discarded at the animal shelter. The people at the shelter thought that she was much older than she is due to a complete lack of care: She was filthy and matted, her teeth were rotten, her eyes were infected, and she doesn't use one of her front legs.
After a good bath, a quick trim to remove the mats as well as a dental to get rid of the rotten teeth and her spay, she is recovering comfortably at her foster mom's house. Her loving personality is beginning to show through, something those backyard breeders never knew about her. Tilly is getting medicine for her eyes and they are clearing up nicely. She will see a vet soon about that front leg - apparently an old injury that was not cared for properly. We hope to be able to help her regain the use of it.
Tilly has many years of love and companionship to give to someone. She was never housebroken, but has already learned about the potty pads and is doing well. She seems grateful to be out of her deplorable condition. Please give Tilly the life she deserved to have all along. Fill out an adoption application and name her as your new best friend.
Her adoption donation is $550, includes microchip.
