Rocky's Story...
Rocky is fostered in St Francis Wisconsin 53235 - to find out more about Rocky contact his foster momma at: mschristinedwyer@gmail.com

UPDATE: Mr. Rocky visited his awesome vet today (Thank you Dr. Julie), and Rocky is in tip top shape. He is now up to date on vaccinations, he has been micro chipped and he is perfectly healthy. Dr. Julie agrees that Rocky is just the best dog, we've decided he is a real "gentleman". As previously indicated, Rocky was surrendered due to occasional urination inside the house. We've been diligent in taking Rocky outside every two hours or so to get him used to going outside regularly. I truly believe Rocky has the ability to hold as long as he is regularly taken out. Rocky is used to living with boys between 2 and 18, but he has quickly bonded to Foster Mom. He has shown mild, passing interest in the 9 month old human who visits our house. Rocky gets along great with our male Yorkie, although our 4# female has startled him a couple of times with an out of the blue shriek (her issue, not his). Rocky almost never barks. He walks well on a leash, gives kisses here and there, and LOVES to ride in the car. Truly a wonderful Little Gentleman Yorkie. DOB is 3/7/2010, and he weighs 12.8#s. Rocky is being transitioned to a high quality dog food to ensure his healthy dietary future. Although not a pre-requisite for adoption, we would like to minimize the number of times Rocky's food is changed during this stressful time between families. Please consider whether you are willing to spend 15 to 25% more as compared to grocery store pet food in order to maintain consistency. Rocky needs some activity, but overall, he is happy hanging by foster mom and getting love.

Initial Bio 08/31/15: Hello Dog/Yorkie Lovers. I'm Rocky, aka Rock Star, and my Foster Mom tells me that I am, indeed, a Rock Star. Today is my first day with my Foster family, and they all seem really happy that I'm here. I miss my first family - which consisted of a Mom, Dad, 4 human brothers and a large canine brother, who likes to eat my food!. Unfortunately, I occasionally found a corner in the house to urinate in, and my family just replaced all the carpeting! They decided I might do better with a family that is less busy, and who can take me for walks regularly so that I learn when it is the right time to go and where the right place is. My First Mom says I didn't do it often, but it stressed her out. So now I'm part of United Yorkie Rescue! I hope to find my forever home soon, as I am really a loving boy who can't wait to bring smiles to your faces. Foster Mom Christine here. Rocky is absolutely the sweetest little guy. He was born in March 2010, and has always been with the family that got him as a puppy. He is about 12#s, and his ears are more droopy than most Yorkies. His teeth are in amazingly good condition for a 5 year old Yorkie. He barks far less than my male Yorkie. Truly a little love. He sleeps in his crate, and gets along very well with the other two Yorkies in the house. We will continue to monitor Rocky's urination habits, but so far, he has gone outside when we take him. I'm in love with this guy already. Such a sweetheart.
