BJ's Story...
BJ is an incredible little 5 year old yorkie/shih-tzu mix. He is listed as special needs because he has very few teeth left due to severe dental disease that was never taken care of. He just needs to eat soft food from now on, but it doesn't limit his day to day activities. He's calm, quiet and loves other dogs. This gentle little man would do well in just about any household.
