Miley's Story...
1/22/12 - I'VE BEEN ADOPTED!


Adoption Fee: $400


Fostered in Louisiana


Age: 3 years


Weight: 6 lbs.


11/16/11 - All things change with time. The smell of a new car fades; holes eventually wear in jeans and the soles of shoes; and humans get wrinkles. Like so many dogs, Miley found herself living outside in a pen because she had accidents inside and was no longer considered that cute, cuddly puppy with the yummy puppy breath.


Well, she definitely wasn't cute and cuddly when Yorkie Haven first took her in, but that was nothing Miley could do anything about. Her hair was so matted, a needle couldn't get through it, she was dirty and smelled so bad, I'm sure she couldn't even stand herself. Well, all that took was a good grooming and "WHAM", Miley was gorgeous (even with no hair because it had to be shaved off). Then we started working on the vetting. Miley needed shots, fecal, blood work, microchip, dental and to be spayed.


Miley LOVES playing with toys. Plush toys, squeaky toys, rubber toys - any kind of toy (although small tennis balls seem to be her favorite) - she just loves playing with them. She also loves playing with her humans, which is actually new to Miley since she didn't have them to play with before. She is very personable and doesn't meet a stranger. She follows her foster mom and dad everywhere. When all the pups go outside to use the restroom, if she sees her humans even attempting to walk near the door, she darts and is right there by your side. She does not want to be left outside and who could blame her. She feels so good and smells so pretty now, she wants to make sure that outside is just for potty breaks.


Miley is not an alpha, but with her tenacity and sociable personality, she can sometimes work the nerve of the other pups in her home without even knowing it. Let's see how we can say this without being rude-Miley is a little inept in the dog behavior category and acts clueless sometimes as to when another pup is frustrated with her or even mad at her. If one of the other foster pups is taking a drink, she will just walk right up and move on in to drink also. It's as if her doggy radar isn't working. She can, however, be demanding towards her humans and will bark to let the humans know what she wants. We didn't see it as a problem, because it's how all women are, isn't it?


Now, if you are a “glass is half-full” kind-of person (like Miley), consider this... your car gets you where you're going no matter the age; both jeans and shoes get more comfortable with time; and wrinkles indicate where smiles have been and wisdom. Even though Miley became "old" to her previous owners, she is still a young pup with a long life ahead of her with so much attitude and love to give.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Miley, 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.
