Howie's Story...
UPDATED BIO 09/15/2009: Howie is a 4.5 year old 8.5 lb Yorkie boy. If you want lots of love from a new furry best friend, Howie is for you. Howie gives lots of hugs and kisses for his FM when she returns home from work. He likes to be groomed, he eats very well, and he loves his walks. Howie has the full run of FM's home and is 100% housetrained!! He enjoys sleeping on the end of his FM's bed at night.


Howie does not beg for food at the table. He does like to hang out on the couch or a chair with you. Howie does have a minor handicap, but nobody ever told Howie he has one. See, Howie has a mature cataract in his right eye which is evident in his pictures. However, this little guy is living his life to the fullest! What Howie DOES know is that he needs a loving FURever home!!

Can you give him one?

ORIGINAL BIO 8/3/2009: Hiya everybody! My name is Howie! I am a 4-1/2 year old 8.5 lb Yorkie boy. I was rescued from the shelter today where I was picked up living on the streets all by my lonesome. At the shelter, nobody wanted to adopt me because..... well.... take a look at my "before" pic. I was covered in poopie and fleas. They say I smelled really bad, but after 6 days in my cage all alone, I got used to the smell. I am so grateful UYR was there to rescue me. Foster mom brought me home today and introduced me to the bathtub! She said I was SUCH a good boy. I let her work her magic on me -clipping my nails, combing out the mats, and making sure I didn't have anymore critters hitching a ride on me!

FM wanted me to let you know that even though I am a young boy, I have a mature cataract in my right eye. This means that I can only see out of my left eye, and there is a small cataract forming there too. I get around just fine, love going for walks, and ate all my dinner tonight! FM will update you when she finds out more about little 'ol me! Ta-ta for now! Luv, Howie.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Howie, a Fairfax 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 Fairfax, or seeking a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Fairfax.

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