MIDGET's Story...

THIS IS MIDGET....a petite, 6.8 lbs, black and tan, 6 yr old Yorkshire Terrier. Midgey, as we call her, was adopted from the shelter and returned because she had hardened "eye boogies!!" Good thing, as she is not a "child's" dog. Her hair was so matted to her face, when the shelter removed it, it left a terrible sore, which is being treated and quickly healing. We're not sure what happened in this little girl's life, but there is no question she's been traumatized. She is terrified of people at times...she definitely picks and chooses her friends. She's shown no aggression with me (female) but she is slow to get to know you. She seems frightened of men and does get nippy at strangers. In time, she calms down...but she needs a patient home that will give her time to know and trust you. She follows me everywhere in my house and even has started asking for attention. Sits on my lap while I'm working! Kisses my toes! She has to be convinced that she is worth loving...and she totally is! How many dogs do you now who are afraid of belly rubs? But once Midgey got a sample of a belly rub....she was in nirvana! She gives gentle little kisses to say, "I think I like you but I'm not sure yet!" She LOVES to go for walks and springs up when she sees the leash. Seems to be potty trained, but no promises!! She is also quite willful when you are walking and she wants to keep going!! No question she has a dominant streak, esp when she perches on the top of the couch!!! She is protective and will bark at strangers...but is not yappy or a whiner. She would be fine as an only fact, a single woman who would be ideal...but not left alone all day. She would be OK for a few of hours and that would be great so that she would appreciate you when you come home! With time and love, this little midget will be your gigantic best friend. A mature home, without kids would be best.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

MIDGET, a Los Angeles 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 Los Angeles, or seeking a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Los Angeles.

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