Trooper's Story...
Trooper is a tiny, pint-sized ball of happiness! He is estimated to be about 9 yrs old and weighs in at a whooping 4.5 lbs! A scruffy little mix of Yorkie Terrier and Chihuahua, this guy would love to be toted around in your arms, or be in command of your army of garden gnomes in your backyard. Trooper is a great companion animal. He loves to sit on the couch and chill out, he is great at Jeopardy, but hates Wheel of Fortune. Trooper is great with other dogs and other animals. He likes the company of other dogs (big or small), but does not necessarily play with them, just more likes being around them. Trooper would do best in a home where someone is home more often than not and/or where he has access to a fenced backyard where he can explore, sun himself and relieve himself during the day. Trooper prefers running around in an open yard or dog park to get his exercise, as opposed to leash walks. With a yard to run in, he would barely even need a formal walk! (He does walk well on a leash, but would rather be free to sniff & explore.) He is a low maintenance little guy who is looking for a lotta love! If you are interested in adopting this sweet little guy, please send an email to shellysshelter@yahoo.com

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Trooper, a San Diego Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier/Chihuahua dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier/Chihuahua for sale in San Diego, or seeking a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier/Chihuahua dog from a breeder in San Diego.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in San Diego 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 San Diego 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/Chihuahua breeders who help with Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier/Chihuahua rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in San Diego paves the way for another one to be saved.
