Update: Byron has been diagnosed with a hernia and will have surgery on 11/09 – wish him luck!
UPDATED BIO 11/07/2010: Bradley is a sweet 9 month old 6 lb male maltese/yorkie (maltie) mix who is being fostered in Boynton Beach, FL, along with his brother Byron (who is 7.3 lbs). Bradley is really affectionate, but waits to be invited for attention and affection. When he is ready to go to bed, he will trot into the bedroom and put himself to sleep; but if there is any noise in the house, he is right back up because he is so nosy and doesn’t want to miss any activity in the house. Bradley has completed his course of liver enzyme medication, which was given shortly after rescue; the vet felt that the liver enzyme deficiency was initially caused by Bradley’s extremely poor diet and condition when found in the woods. Foster Mom is still working on Bradley’s housetraining, having had to begin with him and Byron as if they were 2-month-old puppies learning for the first time where it is and is not appropriate to go potty! But FM says that progress is definitely being made. Bradley needs a fenced-in yard to run his speed laps. He shares affection well with other dogs. He is not an alpha dog like his brother Byron.
NOTE: Initially, Bradley’s foster parents felt that they he and his brother Byron would do better if they were adopted into separate homes. However, after having more time to observe them, they now feel that their (disruptive/guarding) behaviors are under control and since they are so bonded, it would be best if they are adopted together into their forever home.
Foster Parents also think Bradley would be fine with children over the age of 10 – no toddlers/babies!
UPDATED BIO 09/22/2010: Bradley is a sweet 8 month old 6 lb little morkie boy who is being fostered in Boynton Beach, FL along with his brother Byron (who is 7.3 lbs). Bradley is currently taking liver enzyme medication and must complete this treatment and be re-tested before he can be neutered. He is very affectionate and gets along with all the other dogs in the home. He loves to play and run with others in the yard. Bradley needs a fenced-in yard to run his speed laps. He shares affection well with other dogs. He is not a alpha dog like his brother Byron. Bradley will try to talk to you in his very own special way - awwww! He is working on house-training, but the belly band is wet in the morning. Bradley is more fond of other doggies than toys. He loves to cuddle with his people and would be good with older children. Bradley loves his baths, but is still afraid of the big world while on a leash, but he is getting better and better each walk he takes.
After having observed Byron & Bradley over the past few weeks, Foster Mom says that even though they obviously love one another, she truly feels that it would be better if they were adopted into separate homes.
UPDATED BIO 09/06/2010: Bradley is a sweet 8 month old 6 lb (corrected age and weight estimated by our rescue vet!!!) little boy who is being fostered in Boynton Beach, FL along with his brother Byron (who is 7.3 lbs). Our vet thinks they are most likely Morkies (Maltese-Yorkie mixes). After being in their foster home for only 5 days, it is quite evident to their foster mom that Byron and Bradley are very bonded and need to be adopted together. They had a rough start to life and appear to "consult" each other before making a move. They sleep intertwined in each others' paws, and they interact well with both each other and the other furkids in the foster home.
They are having so much fun playing in their Foster Mommy's backyard. They were apprehensive about grass at first, and it is FM's thought that they lived most of their lives in a cage before finding their way to UYR. Everything is new, including puppy training. They are smart little guys and are learning where to potty. Byron and Bradley have had their initial vet visit and appear to be very healthy and very young (and almost identical except for slightly different haircuts and slightly smaller size of Bradley). They will be going in for their neuters this week. Please keep these special boys in your thoughts. They are so deserving of a wonderful, loving home where they will never have to worry about being homeless again.
INITIAL BIO 09/01/2010: MEET BRADLEY! He is a handsome 1 y/o 7.8# adorable yorkie mix puppy; he is being fostered in Boynton Beach, along with his brother Byron. Their story is very sad......and very cruel. Bradley and Byron were purposely abandoned deep in the forest where the houses are many miles apart. Thank Goodness a Good Samaritan saw them walking on the roadside and picked them up since the puppies were in an area with known coyotes. They appear to be siblings, and both seem to be happy little boys in spite of their unfortunate 'adventure'. At this time, Foster Mom is just getting to know them, and we don't know if they are bonded and need to be adopted together. Please check this website frequently as FM gets to known them better.
