UPDATED BIO 12/15/2010: Champ is a CUUUUUUTIE-PATOOTIE 11 month old 9-10 lb little yorkie boy (or mix, we really don't know). He is being fostered in Boynton Beach, FL. He had this to say to all his fans!
"Hi, I am Champ! My owners gave me to a high kill shelter cause they didn’t want me, or couldn’t keep me. I guess they didn't know about UYR. That shelter can euthanize owner-surrendered dogs immediately. Phew! Glad I busted outta there! I got very sick from the shelter and probably had the flu. I did not eat or drink and FM had to give me food in a syringe and I even needed IV fluids! After 7 days, I started to eat a little food and since then I get better and better every day. I wait for FM to take me out to go potty. I sit when she tells me to. I love to take walks outside and act just like a yorkie puppy. I want to smell everything and run after anything that blows from the wind. I am learning how to play with my foster brother Elvis. I love to pull toys with him and I am learning that if I snap at him when I have a bone in my mouth that I will be scolded so I don’t do it as much anymore. I don’t care if there is another dog in the house or nor, but I may not care to make friends for awhile. I want a person of my own that will let me lay on their lap, throw a toy for me to fetch, feed me when I am hungry and sleep with me when I am tired. I will never ask any more than that. I do whine when I go on walks and my FM says that I am crying to go back to the only home I knew for the first year of my life. She said time will make it easier. FM thinks I could be good with children. When I see my neighbor next door I bark and run up to him like I am going to bite him, but I never do... I don't even snap. FM just thinks that’s my way of greeting someone I like. FM said she is taking me to the vet on Thursday to be neutered. FM also says that I am very smart. If she had me alone I could probably learn to heel, lie down, catch Frisbees as I jump very high, and probably lots more tricks. She says not all the furbabies that come to her house are as smart as I am! Don't you want a smarty-pants like me? Licks and wags, Champ xoxo
UPDATED BIO 11/26/2010: Champ has seen the vet, and the news was just great! He received a perfect bill of health. He is approximately 10 months -1 year and weighs 9 lb. Champ is being fostered in Boynton Beach, FL.
In addition to his exam, all bloodwork came back perfect. We are just waiting for his neuter before he will be ready to be adopted. He is a lovely dog and gets along with dogs. He is such a well-behaved boy and is just waiting to be your best friend!
INITIAL BIO 11/21/2010: Hi! My name is Champ! I'm only a year old and weigh 9 lbs. I am ADORABLE and am being fostered in Miami, FL til make it to my foster mom in Boynton Beach.
So, what is there to tell you about me? Well, aren't I a CUTIE? I have long hair, and Foster Mommy made me look like a girlie in my photo, but I am a boy. I even still have my boy parts..... for now. Gulp. I guess that comes next week. My former mommy and daddy dropped me off at the shelter. I am still not sure why, and I'm still not sure what is happening to me. I do know that my Foster Mommy loves me and gives me lots of hugs and kisses. That makes me feel safe. I wish there was a furkid here to play with because Mikey doesn't play much. :)
So far I only had one accident inside. I was nervous FM said. Otherwise, I pottied outside like a good boy. See? I'm a good boy. Still not sure why I was abandoned. FM says they must be CRAZY to let a doll baby like me go! So if you want to be my new FURever mommy or daddy, let FM know, ok? :) xoxo - Champ
