Hi! I'm Arlo

I love to be held and cuddled by my owner. Unfortunately my former cuddle situation changed and I need to look for new owners.

I do have a bum knee! The knee cap in my back right leg sits off to the side of the knee joint. This was probably a structural defect from birth; not due to an injury. Because that knee cap is pretty much locked in place, there is little to no rubbing and therefore no pain. I do tend to lift that leg when walking quickly because it isn’t as flexible as it could be!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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