Pippin's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Pippin's Story...
Pippin is a dog friendly 12 pound Yorkie in search of a retirement home. Pippin weighs 13 pounds and is house trained. He is attentive, as well as, independent. Pippin would rather be by your side or next to you instead of in your lap. His favorite spot is the highest point on the couch where he can watch the world go by.

Don't let this boy's age fool you. He's agile and gets very excited when he catches sight of a leash or his favorite toy.

Pippin's ideal home would be with a retired caretaker. As a small dog, Pippin is uncomfortable around small children that move fast.

If you are interested in finding out more about Pippin, please fill out an application.

Pippin is being fostered in Shrewsbury.

The adoption fee is $150.

Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable, so for most of the dogs we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.

We expect that all adopted dogs will enroll in a formal dog training class with their new owners. Obedience and training classes are an excellent way to learn more about your newly adopted dog, gain handling and training experience, and improve your relationship with your pet.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Pippin, a Worcester 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 Worcester, or seeking a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Worcester.

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