Hi folks - my name is Theo.  The vet thinks I am about 10 years old, and some sort of Yorkie mix?  Some people think I may be a purebred Yorkie, but I don't have any papers to prove it.  Foster mom tells me that's not important.  What is important is that I am a super sweet, shy boy.  It took me a couple of days to warm up to my foster mom, but now I really enjoy being next to her, and I love leaning in for pets.  Sometimes when she reaches towards me, I stick out my tongue at her and raise a paw like I want to shake hands.  I like to follow the other doggies in my foster home around and they're helping me feel more comfortable now that I'm out of the shelter.  I hope my new family will allow me time to warm up and learn to love and trust them.  I have a harder time learning to trust men.  I warm up to women much more quickly.  Treats help me warm up to people.  I just had a bunch of teeth removed, but that doesn't slow me down.  I love to eat my dinner and get treats!

Foster mom has me spend my days in the crate while she's at work.  That's not my favorite, and I try to put up a fuss, but I quiet down after a couple of minutes.  I can also be in the kennel at night, but I would really prefer to snuggle up by your feet or in a doggie bed next to your bed.  I had a few accidents in my foster home when I first arrived, but I'm learning the schedule we're on.  When I'm kenneled when foster mom isn't home, we have hardly any accidents at all.  The only time I bark is when I'm first placed in my kennel.  Besides that, I'm a super quiet dog.  You would hardly even know I'm around, except that I will always be following you around.

If you have a nice, quiet home, and you're looking for a nice, quiet dog to share it with, fill out an application to meet me today.
