found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, purebred, up to date with shots, and not good with kids.
York saw the vet today. He was neutered and had a dental. Young York had 7 teeth pulled. The vet said some were so loose they were wiggling in his mouth. This could be the reason York was not eating and has lost weight. Now that his bad teeth are all gone he should feel more like eating. We hope! The vet did not want to do anything about his knees right now. He wants York to be at a healthier weight.
York is doing a lot of pacing and not sleeping much, but that is getting better. He is adjusting slowly to his foster home. He really enjoys being outside in the yard and being with the other dogs. York didn't get much human attention in his former home, being one tiny little dog among 25 others. His foster parents are having to go to him and get him if they want to hold him and love on him. He is still unsure of people. It is hoped in time he will come to love the attention from his people and trust them.
York is not fully house trained, so his foster parents are working on that. York has not yet been leash walked, but will use the fenced backyard. Leash walking will come in time. There are just so many new things to get used to for this very young, very little fellow.
We have decided that York will need to stay in his foster home until he is at a healthier weight and doing better physically and emotionally. Our main goal right now is to get York healthy.
Because of York's size he can only go to a home with adults and possibly children over the age of 14. He will need someone home often to continue to meet his emotional and physical needs.
We are not sure when York will be ready to be adopted, but applications are being accepted if you are willing to wait until he is healthy and ready for his forever home. Watch for updates as York progresses and get healthier and healthier.
Initial Bio 11-5-15 York is such a tiny, young, little guy. He is 1.5 years old and weighs just a little over 3 pounds. Little York is being fostered in St. Augustine, FL.
York came into his foster home yesterday. He was one of the dogs United Yorkie Rescue rescued from the hoarding situation.
York has some issues that will need to be addressed. He has a luxating patella and one knee that does not go back in at all. The vet is not sure he will require surgery on his knee at this point, since he does not appear to be in pain, but it may be something that will have to be considered down the road.
York also has an open fonta in his cranium. Apparently the soft spot on his skull that all babies are born with did not close entirely. It is not life threatening, but it is important to know about so it can be watched through the usual vet care.
This little guy is very timid and shy. His foster parents hope that as he gets used to his new situation he will become less shy and more friendly. He is getting groomed soon along with his neuter, dental, and the rest of his vaccinations.
Because of York's small size he can go to a home with adults only. York would love someone home often so he can get the attention and love so lacking when he was only getting a tiny share of attention which had to shared among so many other dogs.
Watch for more information coming soon on little York.
