Mike is a 6yo, 15 pound Yorkie mix. Mike is a great dog, nice and calm and very easy going. He is initially shy but warms up, and loves to be held or curl up next to you. He loves to be held and have his tummy rubbed! Mike does bond very strongly to his person and has some seperation anxiety. He needs a patient adopter who understands that shelter dogs need a little time to open up and trust, and who will work with him to become more secure on his own!

Mike is very well behaved little dog. He stays off the furniture unless invited, gently takes treats from your hand and waits patiently when food bowls are being passed out. If he wants a pat or a treat he paws the air like he is reaching for you and looks at you with his big brown eyes... totally irresistible! Mike is generally good with other small dogs but we do think he would be happiest on his own.

Mike is vaccinated, microchipped, and neutered. He is housebroken.

Waggytail Rescue is committed to helping LA's at risk dogs by bringing them One By One to NYC where demand for small adoptable dogs is high! With our Waggy West Rescue mission we are dedicated to providing these dogs the compassion, care and companionship they deserve from the second they leave the shelter to the moment they arrive in their forever home. All of our LA rescues are available for adoption in LA until a freedom flight to NYC is arranged!

More info about our adoption process is available here. Please email applications to with the dog's name in the title!

We are looking for short term fosters that can commit to caring for small dogs for a week or two before we fly them with a volunteer to NYC for adoption! We are also looking for volunteers who are flying LAX to NYC who can chaperone a pup in their freedom flight! Waggytail covers the cost of the dog's ticket and will provide an airline approved carrier. Please contact us at to become a volunteer transporter.

Through the tireless work of our many volunteers and amazing fosters, we are committed to continuing to find forever homes for New York's littlest strays.
