Wickett's Story...
UPDATE 03-01-09: Hello again! We're all taking turns here, sitting down and typing updates to our bios for everyone to read. Hold on, I think someone is getting too close to me - I might have to run and hide! I'm actually getting a lot more comfortable around people and other dogs. I was a lot like Lucy when I got here...no real contact with people or furkids where I came from. I am doing very well learning the routines around here, which FM thinks is a good indication that I am progressing just fine. FM has been busy going through several of the applications she has received for me, and hopefully she will find a furever home for me soon. She did sign me up for a puppy class like Lucy went to, to help me with my socialization skills, so it will still be a few weeks before I am actually ready to leave my foster crib.

Talk to you soon,

Initial Bio 01-20-09: Hello, Wicket here. I am an 8 lb., two year old male. My first day here has been a real treat already! I got a bath, played with some other furbaby's, and ran around in the snow. I am a little afraid of the two-legged animals though. FM thinks it's just because I am new around here. I will update you some more after I get used to these new digs a little more. Wicket

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Wickett, a Columbus 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 Columbus, or seeking a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Columbus.

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