Griffin's Story...
UPDATED BIO 02/25/2017: Griffin's leg is healing very well from his recent surgery. He continues to develop muscle, and is now walking on this leg most of the time. He still picks it up on occasion and when running, but for the most part, he walks around on all four legs. He will even stand on both hind legs if there is a treat involved! He has done remarkably well for all he has been through in such a short time.

Griff is such a sweet little guy. He makes funny little noises to let you know he wants your attention and he won't give up until you pick him up and hold him and cuddle and give him lots of belly rubs. He loves belly rubs. He'll throw his head back when you pick him up so his belly is right out there waiting for a rub!

Due to the extensive surgery Griff has undergone, he will have to be careful for the rest of his life. Since he’s only a doggie, he doesn’t know how to be careful, so he will be dependent on his adoptive family to protect him from any sort of trauma to his legs. His furever home will need to monitor his living conditions to ensure he never takes a bad fall as this could compromise his hip surgery and possibly require additional surgery. For this reason, he must never be placed on furniture where he could possibly jump off or have to go up and down stairs, engage in rough play with another pup in the household or be held by small children. His new owner will always need to be cautious and protective so as to prevent Griff from having another fall. Could your home be the perfect home for little Griff?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Griffin, a Palm Coast 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 Palm Coast, or seeking a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Palm Coast.

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