3/15/11 – Dixie is doing very well. The results from the many mammary tumors came back and they were benign. She will just need to be watched for anymore to appear. Before having the mammary tumors removed Dixie had been limping on her back leg. The dogtor checked her leg while she was under anesthesia and did not see any issues. The limping has gone away and she is back to normal. We are working on the house training and she will go outside when you take her out, but hasn’t quite grasped the concept of letting us know when she does need to go out. We are sure with time she will catch on.

2/21/11 – Dixie will be going into the dogtor on Thursday to have some mammary tumors removed. She has also started limping with her back right leg, so the dogtor is going to check it more thoroughly when she is under for her tumor removal. He checked for the typical luxating patella and confirmed that is not the issue.

2/9/11 - Dixie is sweet as ever! She comes out of her shell a little more every day. She has now started wagging her tail more when she is happy and also comes by for a nice massage. She loves to snuggle in next to you on the couch or at your feet on a blanket. She is a very quiet little girl, unless the other pups are barking and then she can’t help but join in a little bit! She just wants love and affection! We are still working on the house training, but have found that doggie panties do help and she doesn’t mind wearing them at all.

1/21/11 – Dixie is doing very well. She is still a little shy at times and will hide when strangers come over, but she loves massages and affection and wants to follow you around wherever you go. She unfortunately is not house trained at all and is going to take some work getting her there. She will sometimes use piddle pads if they are down, but most of the time she does not and will just go wherever she wants to and will even mess in a crate if she is in one. She is a very sweet and quiet little girl that just needs a lot of work on house training.

1/13/11 - Dixie is a little girl that starts out shy, but opens up after a day or so. She is your little shadow and will want to follow you wherever you go. She likes to lay next to you either on the couch or on a bed or blanket on the floor. She went to the dogtor today and lost about 18 teeth and was spayed. She should feel like a new girl after getting rid of all those nasty teeth.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Dixie, a Charlotte 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 Charlotte, or seeking a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Charlotte.

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