Maya's Story...

Adoption Fee: $300

Fostered in Mississippi

Age: 7.5 years

Weight: 4 lbs.

10/27/11 – Guess what I’m going to be for Halloween? That’s right – a Princess! Well, let’s make that a Princess Diva – that’s what foster mom calls me!! I have to admit that I was pretty freaked out when I first got here – you see I wasn’t used to having other little furballs around that would invade my “space”! But once I figured out that they weren’t going to hurt me, I now allow them to enter into my presence! Heck, I’ve even tried to play with the little one – he’s a bit slow though and doesn’t see that I’m trying to flirt with him – oh well, he’ll catch on eventually, I’m sure – meanwhile I’ll just keep trying! I’ve discovered that he’s quite harmless!

I got here with my one stuffed toy (a bone about twice as big as me) and I was very possessive of it. But then foster mom got out the BOX of toys and I’ve had such fun picking out a new toy whenever I want. I just LOVE it when foster mom will throw the toys for me so that I can go get them a bring them back to her...sometimes I act like foster mom’s fuzzy house-shoes are my toys, but I really know better – it’s just my way of getting her attention when she’s not paying full attention to me. But don’t worry – even though I love playing with them, I don’t try to tear them up.

I’ve gotten really good about not peeing in the house either – I realized that I could bark to let foster mom know that I wanted to go outside and she comes and opens the door every time! Then I get to go wander around the back yard, I just love being outside and checking everything out.

Oh, and I’m eating regular dog food now – as long as there’s some pumpkin in there too – I hear pumpkin is good for our digestive systems, so I’m all good with that.

I LOVE being with my humans and I LOVE having my belly rubbed – it’s pretty much a toss-up as to whether I’d rather be playing fetch or laying in your lap having my belly rubbed – but as long as I’m getting lots of attention – either way – I’m good. I’m a happy little girl that can make anybody laugh – I’m just that cute!

10/9/11 – Maya (aka Lil Bitz) has been with her foster family for 3 weeks now. At first she had some problems adjusting to being removed from the only home she’d known for 7 years and placed with a human stranger and 3 yorkie strangers! At first she was very space and toy aggressive, but she has really gotten better about these issues and she’s even started putting her toy in front of the other dogs and acting like she would entertain the idea of them playing with her!

She LOVES playing with her stuffed toy bone and any nylabone that happens to be laying around the house. She loves for you to play fetch with them. She also has the cutest little habit of “break dancing” when she wants you to play – it reminds me of the “Elaine” dance on Seinfeld!! It’s very funny, cute and sweet.

Maya isn’t fond of typical “dog food” but she’s started eating a few pieces of dog food along with her chicken, pumpkin and rice. She will have her first dental this Tuesday, and after she’s gotten over the soreness from this procedure, we’ll start increasing the amount of dog food kibbles she gets in order to try to get her to switch over to dog food.

Maya will use a pee pad when confined in her x pen when no one is home, but needs to be watched when she’s roaming the house. In the past few days, she’s started enjoying being in the yard and has spent quite a bit of time exploring the back yard by herself.

Maya is a sweet little girl who loves giving kisses. She would do best in a home with just her and her human (or maybe with one other dog that is very intuitive about the needs of another dog!) and where she could be the center of her human’s universe – she LOVES the attention!

9/16/11 - It was just mom and I for a very long time - then something happened that turned my world upside down. Mom brought home another baby (one with only 2 legs), and it started getting more attention than me and I did not adjust well to this. Mom could sense that I was nervous and unhappy and felt my utter dislike for the new baby and decided to contact rescue so they could find me a home without children where I could be the center of attention and loved like I was before.

I just hate that I’m starting over, but I guess I’ll have to make the most of this situation and my foster mom has promised me that she is going to find me a home with no children and none in the future, a home where someone wants to cuddle with me and have me sit in their lap. I love to get and give attention and I would do just fine if it were just me, mom and/or dad. I do fine co-existing with other dogs that aren’t to playful, or just as long as they don’t expect anything from me. I’d just rather be with my people, so other four-leggers can take that nonsense elsewhere or you'll have a 4 pounder growl at you. I walk well on a leash, but this should not a substitute for a secure back yard for me to run around and play in. A girl’s got to get her exercise to keep this figure. I do well with baths and sleep good through the night, i.e., you’ll never know I’m right beside you under the covers. LOL.

Anywho, think about what you’ve read, think about what you have to offer me, make sure you aren’t having any two-leggers since we’ve already found out that they make me very unhappy, and then apply to adopt me.

Hugs and kisses, Maya!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Maya, a Long Beach 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 Long Beach, or seeking a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Long Beach.

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