Chelsea's Story...
CHELSEA (ILLINOIS) Meet Chelsea in Chicago, IL. Chelsea will turn 5 on March 18th. She weighs 12 lbs. Chelsea is very affectionate and attentive. She loves to just hang out but is also very happy to go on a walk, or her favorite, take a trip to the dog beach where all the beachgoers will be wowed by how she is such a great little swimmer. She is well trained (pad and outdoor pottier) and has no negative tendencies to speak of. She does not like to be in a crate when left alone. While not a 'lap dog' she will cuddle up to you at every chance.

The family is heartbroken to have to give her up, but she has recently become aggressive with her sister dog, Roxy (who was adopted through UYR several years ago). Chelsea seems to be more happy in a smaller, quieter household. She has never shown aggression towards other dogs (even going to doggie daycare) or any humans. She does tend to be shy around small children.

If you think you can offer Chelsea the perfect Forever Home (with no small children or other pets) and you live in the Chicago area (or within a reasonable driving distance) please contact Allison at

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Chelsea, a Austin 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 Austin, or seeking a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Austin.

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