Carter's Story...
Hi! My name is Carter and I am a very sweet little Yorkie boy who is 7 years old and I weigh 5 lbs. I have spent 7 years in a cage and my mouth got infected from chewing on the wire of my prison and my lower jaw rotted away. I can eat dry food on my own but it is a slow, painful process so it would be great if I have someone who is willing to give me soft food and even help me eat it. I need a quiet home with no children and if you have another dog, you will need to remember that I am helpless with no teeth. If you have to work part time that would be okay but I so need all the love and care that I have missed.
If you will let me, I will touch your heart. Please ask for me on your application to
Love, Carter 012912-24

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Carter, a Rifle 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 Rifle, or seeking a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Rifle.

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