Benji's Story...
My name's Benji. I was adopted out, but have recently returned for being too fearful of one of my owners. I am still trying to understand why I am here. I seem to be more cautious around men, but am uncertain about a lot of things here. This loud place is not the place for a nervous guy like me. I am looking for someone who can be patient with me and teach me how to be confident. I am looking for my own true super star! Won't you come in and visit with me? Maybe we'll hit it off right from the get go; you won't know until you try!!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Benji, a Wilmington 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 Wilmington, or seeking a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Wilmington.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Wilmington 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 Wilmington 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 Wilmington paves the way for another one to be saved.
