PJ's Story...
9/22/08 - It is with a very heavy heart that we have to write that PJ passed and went to Rainbow Bridge this morning.



We were so hopeful he would recover from his skin infection and that his heart medicine would help him, but his heart just did not hold out. He laid next to his foster mom on the couch this morning, and passed away. She rushed him to the emergency vet to see if they could do anything, but he was already gone. God bless this sweet boy who gave us kisses the minute we picked him up from the shelter. He was loved by all of us that he touched in Yorkie Haven Rescue. PJ - you will always be in our hearts and we know you are running and playing with the other Haven pups at bridge and waiting for us to see you in heaven.

9/16/2008 - Please say Hello to PJ. He is a very sweet 8 year old, 8 lb. boy who has a severe case of pyoderma, which is a skin infection and really needs help.

The skin infection is all over his little body and even inside his ears. You can see in the pictures that his skin is very black, red, and inflamed from the infection and he has a lot of scabby stuff falling off that comes from the pustules that form all over his body. His hair comes out very easily because of the infection and he licks and chews on his feet a lot. He is on an oral antibiotic and an ear ointment to try and clear up the infection as well as getting medicated baths twice a week. He has gotten better since being rescued on September 6th, but he has a long ways to go. He also has an enlarged heart, which he is taking Enalapril for. This severe infection is making him very tired and uncomfortable. His thyroid level is also down, but that could be due to the severe infection and his immune system being down. He was 10.5 pounds in June according to some vet records we received when rescuing him, and is now down to 8 pounds. He is eating well and we are working hard to get him feeling better and this horrible infection cleared up.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

PJ, a Charlotte 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 Charlotte, or seeking a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Charlotte.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Charlotte 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 Charlotte 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 Charlotte paves the way for another one to be saved.
