Chancy's Story...
UPDATED BIO 04/11/09: Chancey is an adorable 9 month-old puppy who currently weighs a healthy 10.#. Chancey is being fostered in Boynton Beach, FL. Chancey only has two more treatments for demodex and he will be ready to go to his forever home - the vet says that his skin and hair look just great! There is almost no evidendence of the demodex left - yeah! He loves-loves-loves to play with just about any puppy who will play with him....he still needs a tiny bit of work on his housetraining, but he's a very smart little boy and is doing just great. Foster Mom would like to see that Chancey gets the home that he so richly deserves, as he will make a wonderful companion dog for someone to love. He can play by himself but prefers teasing FM with his toys. He will definitely be the boss of the family if allowed, so he needs a home in which his 'humans' will be definite leaders or he will 'take charge' if he can. If you are looking for an adorable, playful, loving little puppy, you won't go wrong with Chancey!

UPDATED BIO 03-24-09: Chancey is an adorable 8 month-old puppy whose is at his healthy weight of 9.14 #. Chancey is being fostered in Boynton Beach, FL. He has 3-4 more weeks before he completes treatment for Demodectic Mange, but you can see from his picture how beautifully his hair is growing in! The hair on the top of his head is turning from an auburn color to a very light blonde, as is the rest of his face. His has a dark 'ring' around the back of his neck - then the rest of his body is now completetely silver - he is truly a beautiful little puppy. He can not continue toi walk the 7/10's of a mile around FM's neighborhood 2x a day.


Chancey loves to play with other dogs, so it is hoped that he can be adopted into a home with another doggie companion for him to play with; because Chancey has let Foster Mom know that he is a very alpha dog (he pushes other dogs of the way to drink water first, in addition to going for toys that are meant for others), he should be placed in the home with a submissive, calm dog to play with or as an only dog in the family. He is walking on a leash beautifully and knows when he stops and I say 'come' that he is to continue to walk. Whoever adopts Chancey will be very lucky to get this little baby. Aside from playing beauitifully, he loves to cuddle on your lap and take a nap - what a little love!

UPDATED BIO 03/14/09: Chancey is doing so much better with his treatment for demodex, although he was very, very sick the first week and lost a couple of pounds. Chancey is an adorable 8 month-old puppy whose healthy weight should be about 10#. Chancey is being fostered in Boynton Beach, FL.


Here's what Foster Mom said about him:


Things are going very well with Chancey - he is receiving weekly shots of Ivomectin for his demodectic mange and this will continue for an undetermined period of time.


The really exciting news is that Chancey began playing with my little dog, Elvis, for the very first time. He is turning out to be the best little puppy....his energy level is returning and he runs up to everyone he sees to be petted. Now that he and Elvis have started playing, he wants to approach all the dogs he meets on his walks to play! Chancey had apparently never enjoyed 'puppy play' - he really learned by watching my neighbor's dog and Elvis tumble and roll. He will actually kiss another dog and especially loves a neighbor's big black lab/rotty mix with only 3 legs; the big dog loves him, too, and wants to have him for his own. :)


Chancey is also very smart; he had never walked on a leash prior to coming here and he now walks beautifully - he is also almost 100% housetrained. He loves to sleep in his bed, and when he is on the couch with me, he loves to snuggle really close. He is a very loving dog and will make his new family very happy. The perfect home for Chancey would be a home with another young dog as a companion, or he would adapt as an only dog as well. He can play with toys by himself and also will bring to me and drop it to be thrown; although sometimes he brings it to me to tease me and runs with it when I reach for it.....such a wonderful little puppy! Chancey loves his 'person' and is constantly at my side - he will be a great little buddy to someone who appreciates that he is still a puppy and remembers to put their shoes up so that he won't chew them!


His skin is getting so much better with his treatments.....he lets me comb him twice a day and he will be a very handsome little yorkie boy when his hair grows in completely - Chancey is a winner! If you are looking for an adorable, playful, loving little puppy, you won't go wrong with Chancey!


UPDATED BIO 03-04-09: Hi folks! Chancey here. I'm an 8 month old Yorkie boy who was rescued from the pound with demodectic mange. Demodex is a naturally occurring non-contagious mite that can be found in low quantities on all dogs.... However, some of us pups can have "outbreaks" when our bodies are under stress, the mites overpopulate, and we lose our hair. The good news is I am a young puppy, and puppies often make full recoveries from demodectic mange. Just look at Halee on the Happy Tails page. Isn't she purty?

I've had a really tough week. I came down with kennel cough from the shelter and developed an upper respiratory infection. I stopped eating and drinking and had to go to the Dogtor's office 3 times for IV hydration. It turns out I was not tolerating the medicine for mange, and had to be switched to something else. Boy, have I been keeping my foster mom busy! Good thing she loves me so much. In the meantime, I racked up quite a few bills. The Dogtor checked my labs and found that everything was just fine. He is following me very closely and thinks I'm going to make a full recovery. I need some rest and to put on some weight. I lost a whole pound this past week, and I need to get stronger. Do you think you can help UYR pay my bills so I can get my special injection once a week so I can be cured and go home with you? I'll take $5? $10? Do I hear $15? Licks and wags, Chancey.

UPDATED BIO 2/25/2009: Hello everypuppy - Chancey here! I just wanted to let everyone know what a big week I've had! I saw the Dogtor this week and he confirmed that I am just a puppy at 8 months. I weigh a skinny 9# now, but I'd be healthier at about 11 lbs. I'm getting over kennel cough I picked up in the shelter, but the vet said I'm overall a healthy boy - yippee! I do have one baby tooth left which might need to removed before I'm adopted. Also, I have an ear infection and am getting treatment for it. I've started my medicine for the mange, and will hopefully make a speedy recovery because I wanna be ADOPTED....like now!


The Dogtor also confirmed my Foster Mom's suspicions.... I have not been well-taken care of. The Dogtor thinks I was possibly abused or kept in a very small cage, because my lower back is slightly tender to the touch. Time will tell if this is something that will improve with lots of love and exercise. (I'm getting plenty of that now!). My foster brother Elvis wants to play with me, but nobody ever played with me before; so, I don't know what to do. FM says I'm learning that he's not trying to hurt me, but right now I'm learning puppy manners. FM is working with me and I'm almost 100% housetrained - yeah! She is going to work on a new picture of me soon because I look so much more handsome than my "before" picture that's posted. Thanks for reading about me, and thanks to UYR for helping me find my new mom and dad. Hey mom and dad, are you reading this? Fill out an application now!

ORIGINAL BIO 2/17/2009: My name is Chancey, and I'm the newest puppy here in Florida; I'm only 8 months old (shelter's estimate... I go to the UYR vet for a check-up shortly). I weigh a skinny 9.4# and Foster Mom thinks I would be healthier if I bulked up to 10#. I'm being fostered in Boynton Beach, FL.


"If you change your mind, I'm the first in line. Hey, I'm still free. Take a CHANCEY on me!" My story is very sad.....I belonged to a family who decided they didn't want me anymore. I'm not sure why, but I'm guessing it's because I have demodectic mange (like Ginger does and like Halee on the Happy Tails page). I told them that if they gave me some good medicine for it, that Demodex has an EXCELLENT prognosis in young puppies like me. They didn't listen, and they brought me to the shelter. UYR came and got me just in the nick of time.


My nails were VERY long and my hair was matted and full of dirt and grime. Foster Mom said that my family didn't love me very much or else they would have given me a bath. FM said her tub was black with dirt after she bathed me. (Boy, it felt sooooo good to be clean!) After my bath, I started throwing my toys up in the air out of excitment.


I'm new in FM's home, so it's gonna take a little time for her to learn all about me. So far, I like other dogs, and I hold on tight when you pick me up. I'm a love-bug. It feels great to be outta that shelter. I'm gonna start taking medicine for the mange and will be ready for adoption soon. Wanna take me home?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Chancy, a Homestead Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier for sale in Homestead, or seeking a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier puppy from a breeder in Homestead.

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