MOOCHIE!'s Story...
MEET MOOCHIE!

This adorable, LITTLE guy is named Moochie! Moochie is a 10 lb. Yorkie who was surrendered to Philly's animal control shelter because his previous family could no longer afford to care for him. He is reported to be around 10-13 years old and has lots of adorable personality packed in his tiny body. Moochie is now safe and sound out of the shelter and is in foster care with a loving family!

Moochie's favorite thing is to meet new people. He makes friends very easily everywhere he goes (wing man material)! He loves to be in your lap, following you around, being picked up and doted on, or dancing around in delight at the site of treats! He's currently living with a large breed dog and enjoys meeting new canine buds! Though not currently living with them, his previous family reports that he lived with cats in their home. Moochie is currently working on his housebreaking skills. He'll have the occasional accident if left alone for too long (little dog, little bladder!). Moochie would likely make a good addition to most families!

Moochie came to the rescue with some pretty gnarly teeth so the first thing we worked on was getting those no-good painful teeth extracted and the remaining ones polished to be sparkly white again! His new dental work has made him feel SO much better. Moochie is also currently being treated for chronic ear infections, which isn't uncommon for the Yorkie breed. Moochie has a new lease on life, is feeling better than ever, and can't wait to find his forever home!

Moochie is available for adoption through City of Elderly Love. He is vaccinated, up-to-date on vaccinations, and will be microchipped prior to going to his forever home. He is also negative for heartworm and lyme's disease. Interested in meeting him?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

MOOCHIE!, a Philadelphia 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 Philadelphia, or seeking a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Philadelphia.

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