Sophia was found abandoned out in the country and for the life of us, we can’t imagine who would discard this sweet soul. Nevertheless, after countless attempts to find any owner that she might have had, her rescuers came to the conclusion that her previous home did not want her back. Since they did not need to add another pet to their home, they contacted rescue for help. Sophia was taken in and is in a foster home with two male fur siblings and a feline sibling. Sophia is a nervous little baby with a lot of anxiety. We attribute this to the amount of effort that backyard breeders take in “breeding down in size" these babies to make them more expensive and more appealing to the public’s eye. We have found out that she would not do well with other nervous energy/high strung dogs because they make her upset and a doggy quarrel will ensue which would not be good for either pet, so Sophia will need to go to a home with a laid back dog that doesn’t mind a sibling that is a little anxious at times. She does seem to like other dogs, but judges her friends very quickly and either hates their personality or loves them so much she can be a bit of a pest to them.


Sophia is a great sleeping partner as she loves to be right next to her human, she loves giving kisses, does well with a bath and walk good on a leash. If interested in Sophia, access your own pet’s personality first because we want all to be happy adding to the family.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sophia, a Baton Rouge 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 Baton Rouge, or seeking a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Baton Rouge.

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