Missy(4)'s Story...
(updated 04/06/17) What a cutie!! This is Missy, a charming young adult female (year of birth: 2013(?)); small, she weighs just eight pounds, but every pound is pure love. Not sure of her breed, a Yorkshire Terrier mix, maybe with a little Shih Tzu thrown in, she has a beautiful soft non-shedding salt and pepper coat, that will require daily brushing and regular professional grooming. Missy arrived at the Safehouse on 11/14/2016; she was originally turned over to another shelter by her owner who was unable to care for her. Missy appears to be housetrained but will need time and guidance adjusting to your household rules and routine. Missy does not get along well with other dogs but she is very people friendly and loves to cuddle. Missy enjoys her crate, which she has filled with toys, it is one of her favorite napping places if the door remains open but she will bark non-stop when the door is closed. With her ever-wagging tail, she really treasures the lively attention of people (with indications of early-on separation anxiety); she wants nothing more than to be loved and hugged, with toys and treats thrown in as a bonus!! Well-mannered, Missy is a perfect companion dog. Whether you are single, working, retired, a family with older children . . . Missy would fit in. However, she is no couch potato lap pet, she is an active young dog and will need a home where she will have daily “on-leash” exercising walks. Healthy and well behaved, a perfect pet for a family that will love and care for her forever. Missy is spayed, microchipped, current on all vaccines, heartworm and flea/tick preventative, and she has had a complete physical and dental. The adoption fee for Missy is $200.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Missy(4), a Homer Glen Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier/Shih Tzu dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier/Shih Tzu for sale in Homer Glen, or seeking a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier/Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Homer Glen.

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