Elroy's Story...
Hello there! Thank-you for clicking on my profile, I’d love to meet you. Let me tell you a little bit about adopting me.

My name is Elroy and I am a 1 1/2 year old neutered male Yorkie-Poo who came to NBS Animal Rescue when I was found on the streets as a stray with severely overgrown and painfully matted fur. Thankfully a kind Samaritan found me and took me to a shelter where they contacted the kind folks at NBS Animal Rescue to help me feel better and find my fur-ever home.

I didn't have the best of lives before coming to NBS Animal Rescue. I am very shy and nervous around new people and in new environments. When I first met my foster parents I would cower to the ground and urinate on myself as I was so very scared of touch. Over the last month in my foster home I've gotten much better about being pet and picked up, but I must admit, it's still a bit scary for me as human hands were not always so gentle in touching me. I need a family who is patient and will allow me to come to trust them in my own time in my own way without rushing or pressuring me.

I am a playful fella once I am comfortable in my environment, enjoy going for walks, and like playing with other small friendly dogs who also like to romp in a fenced yard and play with toys. I am learning how to do my personal business outside, but it's not something I've ever had to learn before so it's still a bit new to me. I need a family who won't mind a few accidents as I continue to learn how to do my business outside and will encourage me in only positive and gentle ways as I learn to potty outside. I am good in a crate when you are at work, but I would prefer to have a family who was not gone for long periods of time as I like to play and go outside and potty frequently.

My ideal home is one that is patient, compassionate to my difficult past, willing to be patient and allow me to approach and trust humans on my own time/pace, is home often, and does not have small children under the age of 12. Quick movements, loud noises, and lots of new people coming over the house scare the begeezus out of me so I need a home that is calm and understanding of my past.

My friends at NBS Animal Rescue are helping me to find the perfect fur-ever home. All of the dogs in our rescue are have different personalities and needs within an adoptive home. Not all of my friends here at NBS Animal Rescue have the same requirements, so if I’m not be the perfect fit for your family- be sure to check out my other doggy friends too! For me?

These are the things I fur-sure need in my fur-ever home!
- Family who is gone no longer than 5 hour periods.
- Children must be 12yrs or older.
- Calm/quiet home without a lot of visitors.
- 100% fenced in yard preferred. No invisible/electric fences please. Homes without 100% fenced in yard must have plan in place on application for frequent potty breaks and daily walks outlined.

If you think I might be the perfect addition to your family please follow these steps:

1.) Visit to fill out my adoption application. As an approved adopter, my rescue friends can set up a home visit so I can meet you. Our rescue is 100% run by volunteers, to help your application be processed as quickly as possible, please make sure to….

2.) Call your veterinarian and give them permission to release information about your current and past pet’s veterinary history.

3.) Call your references too! Let them know to expect a phone call from an unknown phone number, and a rescue team member will need to talk to them on the phone as a reference.

My adoption fee is $250.00 and includes a DHPP vaccine, bordatella vaccine, de-worming, spay/neuter surgery, rabies vaccine (age appropriate), heartworm test (age appropriate), heartworm preventative, flea/tick preventative, microchip insertion, bath, nail trim, ear cleaning, leash and collar and one week's worth of food. If you’d like to meet me, please apply online and to become an approved adopter!

Our adoption process requires that any pet in your household be current on vaccinations and heartworm preventative , spayed/neutered (unless a documented medical reason is on file with your veterinarian). Dogs must be current on Distemper DHPP combo vaccine and Rabies vaccine, cats must be current on Distemper and Rabies at the time of application. This also applies to any pets in your home within the past five years.

While I hope that you have fallen in love with me and are ready to apply, I understand if I might not be the perfect pup for your family just yet. However, would you please help by sharing my picture on Facebook, twitter or by email? I'm a great pup and need a loving family to give all of my love and puppy kisses to! Thank-you for your help!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Elroy, a Troy Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier/Poodle (Miniature) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier/Poodle (Miniature) for sale in Troy, or seeking a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier/Poodle (Miniature) dog from a breeder in Troy.

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