Crosby's Story...
Updated Bio 8/16/12: Crosby is an energetic, 4-year-old Yorkie! He is healthy (nice gums/teeth, too!), spayed, and micro chipped. He is up to date on all of his shots. Plus, on top of that, he is super cute and cuddly, as you can see!
He has been with me (foster mom) for a month now, and I have learned even more about him since his last bio update on July 22nd. Crosby has gotten even more attached to me, and becomes very protective and territorial when someone else tries to pick him up or pet him when I am there! Someone who can work with him on that would be ideal! I thought he would be OK with a couple, but I’ve now realized he really needs to be in a single person household. Crosby and my Yorkipoo, Molly, are actually OK with each other now. So I’d say it is OK if you have another dog – but just prepared for a few weeks adjustment period. He definitely doesn’t like to play though, so if you are looking for a playmate for your pooch – Crosby isn’t the one. But, he loves to play with humans! He loves when I throw a toy and he has to go get it…but then he plays with it, he doesn’t bring it back to me. Crosby follows me everywhere – I mean, EVERYwhere - he even gets upset when I take a shower! I don’t mind it and think it’s kinda nice to have a security guard, but his new mom or dad has to not mind that. He is a curious lil guy, too! Closets, baskets, bags…he enjoys snooping and finding ways to make a toy out of anything! Crosby needs a mom or dad who will let him be "king of the castle" and who will have patience and understanding with him – he needs a lot of attention (but who doesn’t like attention?!) I guaruntee Crosby will attached onto his new furever mom or dad, just like he has with me! I can't wait to find Crosby that perfect home, because he is one very special dog who deserves nothing but the best love and care.

Bio 07/22/12: Hi everyone, Crosby here...I've been with my foster mom for a week, and already I am so attached! I went to the vet yesterday and I only wanted to be by FM. The nurse couldn't believe we only just met. I have even gotten my way through a baby gate AND squeezed through those wooden bars on a deck - all because I wanted to be by FM. Sometimes she sings "Me and My Shadow" because I follow her everywhere...I get pretty upset when I can't see her.

Oh - I am SO good in the car - I just lay on the passenger seat - no anxiety, no panting...I chill out! By the way, I got a clean bill of health at the Vet and am up to date on all my shots (I just need to finish my boosters in a few weeks). The doctor says my teeth look pretty good, too. FM calls me Crosby Bear cause I look like a Berenstein Bear and my coat is so soft.

I do go in my crate easily when FM goes to work but I don't like my crate at night much...I mean, no one else is in a crate - so that's not fair. I really like playing with people more than dogs. So she says I'll do better in a home where I can be "king of the castle" - aka the only dog (and no kids). My foster sister Molly is cute and all, but I just don't like to play with her...I think she finally got the point. She does have good toys though, I LOVE playing with them! I typically don't like when she tries to lay with me or crowd my space. FM is trying to teach me not to snarl at Molly when she does that.

One day FM took me on a walk by myself and I was a little confused without Molly...usually I just follow her (she's good for something). She didn't realize until then that I must not have gone on many walks. A few times when I have gotten excited or startled, I have peed on the floor. I think it's because I am still getting used to my new environment. I do listen well though - when FM calls my name, I come right away (if I am not already at her feet)...and when she says "sit" or "lay down" - I do! I mean, I am a Petsmart training school graduate and all. She says I should teach FS a thing or two.

I can't wait to find my furever home and have a permanent human shadow. FM always says - "someone is going to be pretty lucky to adopt you, Crosby." I can't wait to be lucky! Maybe I would be best for a retired person or couple, they could give me lots of attention. Time for a milkbone...

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Crosby, a Canyon Country 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 Canyon Country, or seeking a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Canyon Country.

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