Posh is an adorable girl around 10 years in age. Yorkie's are very long lived so she's just barely considered a senior girl at this point so don't let her age scare you off.
Poshy is quite sweet and loves to have her belly rubbed and be held like a little baby. She does get along fine with other dogs, but she definitely wants to be the boss and doesn't appreciate over zealous dogs bouncing around her. She currently lives in a foster home with 4 other dogs.
As often happens with small dogs, especially Yorkies, her teeth were in rough shape and all had to be removed. She does fine with canned food though and other than her little tongue hanging out, which we think is cute... you'd never know she had no teeth.
Posh is fine with cats and smartly lets THEM be boss. While Posh is fine with older children, we believe small children would be too much for her so we recommend a home without small children.
Yorkie's are considered the hardest dogs to potty train and Posh does actually pretty good! She is kennel trained and as long as she gets frequent trips outside does ok outside of the kennel as well but does still have accidents. She's great overnight, even out of a kennel.
She does suffer from seasonal allergies so frequent baths and anti-histamines during summer and fall will likely be necessary.
