Corky's Story...
Corky a.k.a. "the Corkster" will win your heart in a second flat. He's 2 years old and weighs just over 7 pounds.He is cautious around strangers and it takes time to win his trust. He will do best in an adult only home. If it isn't his adorable brown spot and ears, his cuddly nature, or his soft fuzzy hair that wins you over, it will be his friendliness with other dogs or fondness of nature as he is a happy little hiker and camper! Corky is learning to sit, come, "up", and "no lick" and "no bark" commands. He loves peanut butter and licking your face! He enjoys many activities including snuggling, wrestling his foster brother for a toy, and hiking some elevation outdoors. (An adoption donation of $300 is required.)

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Corky, a Gig Harbor Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier for sale in Gig Harbor, or seeking a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Gig Harbor.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Gig Harbor 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 Gig Harbor 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 breeders who help with Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Gig Harbor paves the way for another one to be saved.
