SUMO's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

SUMO's Story...
Sweet, companionable SUMO enjoys attention & loves to go on short, level-terrain walks. His SPECIAL NEEDS neurological issues don't let his hind legs climb steps or curbs and they sometimes cross when he travels too fast; but he gets around well and is a happy fellow. We have video of him zipping around his Livermore foster's spaces. Sumo is good about holding his "stuff" until he is taken outside. Sumo is 10 yrs young and weighs 11.2#

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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