Carter's Story...
Hi! My name is Carter, and I’m 12 pound bundle of pure love.
To tell you a bit about myself, I enjoy playing fetch with fosters, and follow them around like a personal shadow. Where ever kind people are, I am sure to be right behind. Aside from my sterling companionship skills, I also give great kisses and get so excited when people take the time to get to know me.

Believe it or not though, I have not always been this carefree. When I first came into rescue....I would freeze every time they attached a leash to my collar to take me outside. Every day that goes by, I do better. Now I let people I know put my leash and collar on with out getting so scared. As it turn out, humans can be really gentle and loving! Oh, did I mention I’m also potty trained?

Because of my past life, and because I can still lack confidence and get nervous in some situations, I will be adoptable in mid-October, as I am currently working on how to behave around other small dogs, and I have a habit of trying to dart out the door. Kids tend to run out the door to play, and my foster mom thinks I would do best in a home with only mature kids 12+, or even better- let me be the kid. I do like to be spoiled! There's a big world out there, and it is tough to learn learn that my sense of adventure is safest on a leash with my humans. I'd definitely like a home where I can be the only puppy prince, and no other dogs. However, I do alright with the cat at my foster home. She does her thing, I do mine.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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