History: Gus was rescued from South Korea with his brother Romeo. Their mom dumped the dogs when she found out she was pregnant! They were saved from euthanasia by angels at a wonderful rescue in Korea, but they have been unable to find a forever home, so they were sent to the USA to find their forever home. Gus is being fostered by the family who adopted Romeo.

Type of home: Gus would be perfect for a person who enjoys spending time with their dog. He loves to sit on laps and to be held, but he also loves strutting his stuff on a walk! He looks so proud as he walks! Gus would be comfortable in either an apartment or house, with a retired or working person, a single or couple, or family with kids, age 8 or older. He enjoys the company of other animals, but he would also be suitable for a single dog household.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gus, a La Mirada 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 La Mirada, or seeking a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog from a breeder in La Mirada.

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