Muschu's Story...
Update 09/07/2014: Mushu is a 3.5 year old 4 lb little guy who is being fostered in Miami, FL. Mushu is still on steroid therapy and is getting around with limited ability to balance. The doctor advised us to try to wean the steroids, but that didn't work, as he regressed to barely being able to stay upright for more than a few steps. We are going to invest in some thin foot coverings so he does not get so many blisters when he walks. As long as Mushu is happy and healthy and relatively mobile, he will have a place to stay here with his foster family. We are awaiting a consult with a neurologist to give us a better prognosis as to his potential to improve.

In the meantime, Mushu loves the outdoors and does best on soft grass. He is 100% housetrained and prefers outside to the wee wee pads. He is the best little boy. We are pretty confident that whatever is happening with him is in his brain - specifically the area that controls balance. Steroids do not treat the cause - only the symptoms..... We hope Mushu defies the odds and begins to improve.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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