Quincy's Story...
Hi, my name is Quincy and I am 2 years old. I am a Yorkie mix. I was living in a Hoarders home but also used with 21 other dogs for breeding. When Animal Control found us they took us all away and brought us to a high-kill shelter. My picture and story was brought to the attention of IAR Volunteers who rescued me. The day I was taken off of the transport I wasn’t in the best of shape but after a couple baths and my foster Mom’s TLC I am in much better shape. I am now living in her home with 2 other dogs; some small like me and one big dog and I like all the dogs. I really like my foster Grandma because she is home all day long. I like to hang out with her. When I meet new people I am a little scared but give me time and I will warm up. I am better when there is other dogs around or if you let me get used to you first vs you just grabbing me. Because I’m so cute (I think it’s my ears people like) people just want to grab me; that makes me really scared. So because of that my foster Mom thinks a home with small kids might not be best for me. I won’t bite but I will get very scared and will run away. My ideal forever home is someone who will give me time to bond and once we bond I can cuddle with you. I will need a fenced yard because I like to run. I especially like to chase bunny rabbits and boy, can I run! During the day I like to look out the window or on top of the couch cushions. I can jump high just like a cat. I am a quiet boy that doesn’t bark a lot and sometimes I get playful with the other dogs in the house. I am not food aggressive and I know the word “outside”. I am learning my basic commands because I didn’t learn that in my other home. I also didn’t learn how to walk on a leash. Oh boy, that was a very scary thing when I first had that on me but I am getting better with my leash. I get better every day learning new things but I am so glad I am no longer dirty and not living like I was. Rescue people really help little dogs like me. What they really do best is help me find a nice family. So can you be my nice family so the Rescue people can help other dogs like me? All you got to do is fill out an adoption application. To do that go to: www.illinoisanimalrescue.org. Thanks, Quincy.

Quincy is located in his foster home in Bolingbrook. Please visit our website at www.illinoisanimalrescue.org to view our adoption process and our adoption fees.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Quincy, a Palatine 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 Palatine, or seeking a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Palatine.

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