Hello I'm Topher and I'm a 6 year old Yorkie. I came from a puppy mill where I was used as a stud dog. A nice lady took me from the mill and had me neutered and my teeth cleaned. There wasn't much to clean though, as all of my teeth were bad so I only have 3 left. That is why my tongue hangs out. I've been passed to a few homes so far because of my house training but I'm almost 100% there in my foster home.
I'm listed on Petfinder right now so that the rescue can try to raise money for my knees. I have severe luxating patellas and I need surgery to correct at least one to have a decent long term prognosis. The vet told my foster mom it would be about $700 a knee to fix. If you could please donate to my cause that would be great! http://awos.petfinder.com/shelters/MI776.html. If you go to this page the donate button to click on is on the right side. Just make sure that you specify it is for me (Topher).The sooner my funds are raised, the sooner my surgery can be scheduled! Thank you so for reading my story and taking interest!
