Leo's Story...
INITIAL BIO: My name is Leo. I'm 4 years old and weigh 12 lbs. I'm a
nice "sturdy" boy and love love love to cuddle and snuggle and do all
the things us dogs like to do. I was rescued by UYR just in the St
Nick of time! See, my previous owner turned me in to the high kill
shelter a week before Christmas because she said I didn't get along
with her dog. I was adopted to a woman who said the same thing. They
called me "aggressive". Meanwhile, I was matted, fur was covering my
eyes so I couldn't see, and I was scared. On Christmas Eve, it was my
last day. Knowing I deserved a chance and a proper evaluation, my FM
sent the email that saved my life. She picked me up the next day the
shelter opened, which was 12/27. She had this to say.

"Leo was so happy to be leaving the shelter. He gave me kisses the
whole ride home. He had no issues with Ralphie (the other pup in the
car) or with Logan (whom he greeted with tail wags when they first
met..... and Logan really doesn't care for other dogs and let him know
it). Leo didn't bat an eyelash. We went straight to the tub for a
little shave-down. See, Leo has kennel cough after all that time in
the shelter, and no groomer would take him. He did fine, though he did
get mad at the clippers after about 20 minutes which was
understandable. He is doing very well. He hasn't shown ANY aggression
towards other dogs, but we are thinking a home where he is the only
dog might be wise. He does guard his food a little so everybody is fed
separately. That's about it. Oh, and he is 100% housetrained!!! What a
great pup!!! Seriously, he is a wonderful dog. We're so happy we gave
him a chance!"

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Leo, a Spring Hill 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 Spring Hill, or seeking a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Spring Hill.

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