My name is Beau I am a 7yr old 18lb Yorkie Silky Terrier Mix
I love to take walks and exploring the outside world and would love someone who likes to do that and who would't mind taking me for several walks a day so I can explore and exercise but if you have a fenced yard I would love that even more! I like to do my zoomies and have you chase me and play with me. I really would love a semi-retired, retired or work from home Mom or Dad since I am a little dog and we can not hold our potty as long as the larger pups and someone who wouldn't cringe if I make a potty mistake because you are gone to long.
I need a home with no young children, I have not been raised with them so I am very leery of them especially if they run at me during my walks I will bark at them and usually scare children, I have very little tolerance for children and I would rather live in an adult home only and will only be placed in such.
I am very selective with my dog friends, I am fine walking with a female puppy and do like to play with her but when 2 male dogs approached I was not friendly with them, it is not known if it was due to my female friend being there, if the males were intact or what but I think I would do best as the only pup to prevent any issues and injuries just to see if I would get along or not. I have lived as an only dog my whole life and I am use to that, plus I get all the lovin and snugglin!!
My current families work schedule has changed, my family really loves and are very heartbroken but feel it is not fair how many hours I am left home alone so they decided it was best I find my new furever home so I can be even happier then I am now, could that furever home be with you, can you be my new Mommy or Daddy?

*** Please be patient, we are a very small organization and we all sadly have to work and have families just like you. We also know the excitement of finding a pet that could be your furever family member and we receive numerous inquiries
from other families who feel the same way. Our primary goal is matching the perfect family with our pups and do not practice first come, first serve". We are setting up many meet and greets with our pups and the family could be found prior to you even getting to meet them. We will make sure all potential adopters who inquired are updated if the pup has been adopted. We do not want to waste anyone's time and recommend you keep looking while you wait to hear from us and as always Thank You for adopting and not shopping. ***
Adoption applications will be sent via email only, we do not have them posted online anywhere or on a website.
