Haylee's Story...
Sweet tiny Haylee is a MJAS alum – she was adopted from us in 2010 by a wonderful retired woman who totally doted on her. We don’t know much about her life prior to 2010 but suspect she wasn’t treated kindly or well. Since 2010, she’s lived in a stable, loving home and her personality blossomed. She is a total velcro dog! Although her owner loved and cared for her greatly, her owner was experiencing decreased mobility and health issues. Unfortunately, her owner recently broke her hip, moved to assisted living and can no longer care for her. Due to her owner’s decreased mobility, she had to relearn potty habits. Her owner’s family invested in a highly recommended trainer for 4 weeks and feels Haylee is now housebroken enough to be adopted. She is able to hold it at night without issue but does need frequent trips outside every few hours during the day to remain consistently housebroken. She needs an owner that will reinforce these positive habits. A retired, stay at home or work at home owner is preferred. Haylee is now believed to be about 8 years old , weighs 13 lbs, walks well on a leash, is spayed, up-to-date on all vaccines and vetting including dental care. She is a low shedding dog and has been regularly groomed, and is just an adorable, sweet and very loving little girl. She wants nothing more than to be close to and loved by you.

Small dogs can live into their upper teens (17-20 years old is not unusual), so this young lady still has plenty of life in her! She does very well with other dogs and children and is currently being fostered in a home with both and a pot-bellied pig! She would most likely ignore cats - she is not the least bit aggressive.

Interested adopters please send email to MJsAnimalSanctuary@gmail.com to request an adoption application. Adopters must be committed to caring for this animal for the rest of its life. Adopters are subject to reference checks, vet check, home visit, meet and greet. Adoption fee applies.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Haylee, a Bowie Silky Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Silky Terrier for sale in Bowie, or seeking a Silky Terrier dog from a breeder in Bowie.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Bowie already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Bowie breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Silky Terrier breeders who help with Silky Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Bowie paves the way for another one to be saved.
