Josie's Story...
INITIAL BIO 03/01/2014: JOSIE is 8 years old and weighs 10 lbs; she is being fostered in Jacksonville, FL.

Hi, Josie here to tell you a little bit about myself: I was surrendered by my owner because she wasn’t able to care for me any longer. My former name was Lois and my brother was Clark ~ you know Lois Lane and Clark Kent from the Superman series? Sadly, Clark went to Rainbow Bridge in December and I miss him a lot. My Foster Mom thought it would be nice for me to have a new name with a new start in life and I like it.

I love other animals and would prefer to be with children (older than 12 years pls) who will only play with me in a non-aggressive way, or another dog who will play with me and keep me company when you are away. My previous family had two young boys that played tug-of-war with me… a result of that, I’m kinda “toy aggressive”, and my FM is trying to teach me another not-so-rough way to play. It’s kinda hard for me to learn a new way to play, but I’m trying with her help. My new parents will need to supervise me with my toys and make sure no one ever plays tug-of-war with me since this is what makes me act aggressive with my toys. My fur-brother at my foster home is a golden retriever and we both like to fetch the tennis balls. We will chase it and sometimes I get it and other times he does. The only difference is that I like to tear the nap off the tennis balls after we play. He is mad at me for destroying his new favorite ball, but I am trying to make it up to him.

FM has started me on some new food and I like it. I will even eat it dry without any special sauce! I am crate-trained, but prefer to sleep in bed with FM. I do not like to be left alone for long periods of time and it would be nice to have either one stay-at-home parent, or a doggie companion to keep me company when you are away. I also know some basic commands (sit, down & no), and FM is teaching me some others. I also like to go for walks on a leash. I will go outside to potty as long as you don’t make me wait too long. I roll on my back for belly rubs and will snuggle and cuddle with you and give you plenty of kisses. Will you be my forever family?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Jacksonville 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 Jacksonville 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 Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier breeders who help with Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Jacksonville paves the way for another one to be saved.
