Raffles's Story...
This little doll is approx 1 year old and 9 lbs. He looks like a yorkie/maltese mix. He has beautiful coat and is a really nice dog. However he does need another dog as a companion and he does have some separation anxiety. He will cry and bark when you leave him but settles down in about 15 mins. We find that will usually stop once the dog feels secure in a new home. He was found running on the streets and so wants to be with someone. He seems to be semi house and leash trained and could do with some more help in that direction, but otherwise is very quiet, well behaved and likes to hang out on a doggie bed with his buddies. He is a little timid so would do better in an all adult house hold.

If you live in MA, there are new requirements for rescue dogs - according to the State Law, all rescues have to be quarantined for 48 hrs at the Ben Elder Kennels in Westport, MA. There is additional cost for this quarantine and new required health cert by a licensed MA vet. We will go over all fees with you via email.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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