Desmond (Dessie)'s Info...

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

Desmond (Dessie)'s Story...
DESMOND (Dessie) is a 4 year old, 5-lbs pure-bred AKC neutered male Yorkie. He was surrendered to our rescue after his family lost their jobs, home and vehicles due to the economy. Dessie gets along with other dogs of his same size, is tolerant of cats (they are bigger than him) and is very loving to his Pet Parent. He is not a yapper, which this breed is famous for and is very smart.

Even though Dessie is living in a foster home with other dogs, he does not have very good doggie social skills so he would do best by being an only dog. Very loving he will easily bond with a Pet Parent given a chance. Dessie has come a long way but will do best with someone who can give love but also give him firm boundaries in which to live, otherwise he will turn in to a little brat.

Come and meet DESMOND on Saturday, July 24th at the San Juan Capistrano PETCO, located at 32391 Camino Capistrano Suite A, San Juan Capistrano, CA 92675 from 11:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Desmond (Dessie), a Orange 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 Orange, or seeking a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Orange.

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