12/16/16 - Max has totally settled in now and is proving to be a rare gem. He is a young dog that is mature at heart. He does love to run and play and would do fine with another dog to play with, co-existing with one that doesn’t want to play, or being the only dog in the home to get all the attention. He will try to engage dogs that seem interested, leave the ones alone that don’t, but is ALWAYS interested in sitting in his humans lap, sleeping next to them, being held by them or just being in whatever room you are in. He is a loyal guy... you know the type, if you are sick and lying on the bathroom floor, will sit right there by you and watch over.

He does like to play with toys, but will always choose his humans over anything else. He is also very friendly with all humans and anyone who comes to visit absolutely has to pick him up and he will go to sleep in your arms. Literally, lay there, no wiggling, just content to be another appendage.

He is good with a bath, being blow dried, a hearty eater and an absolute dream to sleep with. Lets you put you arm around him, snuggles right into you and doesn’t move all night.

He is good about his potty training, will go outside each time taken, but will also use pee pads inside. I’m sure he is the culprit of a few random attacks on the legs of furniture at times when not watched, but for the most part, he is good.

He would not do well around small children and needs a fenced yard to run around, bark and play in.

There is really nothing bad that Max’s foster mom and dad can say about this sweetheart. So, if you think you are good enough for Max, he is definitely good enough for you.

10/16/16 - Foster mom, please take a letter. Dear Applicants: My name is Maxamillion. But you can call me Max for short. I was found running on the streets and was picked up and brought to the local shelter. I wasn’t claimed, and thank goodness since my last owners never tended to my medical attention and obviously didn’t want to feed me either since I was so skinny. Well, I’m in a foster home now and have put on much needed weight. Visited the dogtor’s office and got some shots and was neutered. I wasn’t happy about that, but foster mom sad that this was a pre-requisite to entering the adoption program. What was I going to say, “No”? Let’s get real here, I had no home, didn’t know where my next meal was coming from and there was no one to love me. What time is surgery - was my question? I get along with other dogs and love people. I’m not good around children and am WAY too interested in cats to live with them. I am a happy little man whose tail is ALWAYS wagging. It’s very easy to fall in love with me... and that’s not just me saying it. Foster mom and dad think I’m awesome. We’ve got two holidays coming up in the next few months. I’d like to be in my new castle by then to enjoy the holidays with a last name.

Our caring volunteers share their many talents to ensure that all yorkies we rescue from "throwaway land" are safe and can live their lives in a loving, healthy and safe environment - a haven where they will be forever loved.

We have a wonderful base of volunteers located throughout the United States, have no paid staff and are funded solely by kind donations from the public. Before any rescue is placed in a forever home, the pup is spayed/neutered, heartworm checked and made current on all vaccines.
