5/5/11 - “Is this your puppy’s mother?"


This poor sweet soul was discarded like yesterday's trash after she was used up in the breeding market for most of her life. She was purposely dropped off (see picture of her “dumper” taken by videotape. DO YOU RECOGNIZE HIM??) at Capital Area Animal Welfare Society (a shelter in Baton Rouge, Louisiana) in their gated area when the facility was closed. She was left there in the sun for about 4 hours with no food, shelter or water until someone discovered her. She was no more than a money maker for greedy breeders that have no compassion for God's creatures. She most likely had litter after litter and took care of her young the best she could under the circumstances that she lived in to have them ripped away, likely at 4 or 6 weeks of age to be sold for profit.


Sweet Ella, as she is now known, is one of the lucky ones. She was found before it was too late by one of the CAAWS volunteers and they contacted Yorkie Haven Rescue who immediately went and got her and placed her into a foster home.


We assume that Ella received little to no medical care since the results of her first vet visit were disturbing. She has missing hair from malnutrition, she had a yeast infection, an infection in her mouth, tartar filled teeth (some she'll probably lose), was severely emaciated (4.4 lbs. when she should be @ 6 lbs.), dehydrated and had ulcers in both eyes that had already ruptured inward causing scarring. She can still see, but the vet informed us that this condition was more than likely very painful to her while she had them and shortly after they ruptured.


Is this how you want to add a new puppy to your family? By letting something as loveable and sweet as Ella suffer needlessly at a human's hands. There are reputable breeders, but you need to do your homework before buying a puppy.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Ella, 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.
