Alphie and Sammie's Story...
UPDATED BIO 09/20/2012: ALFIE is a 10 year old 6.4 lb male Yorkshire terrier who was surrendered by his owner because her infant son was allergic to dogs. Alfie came in with Sammie (5 years old, 7 lbs) and they must be adopted together since they are bonded. Alfie was walking on only 3 legs when he arrived at Foster Mom’s home; his previous owner said that he had seen a vet and needed an FHO (femoral head ostectomy) ) – read more about this surgery here http://dcvets.org/surgical/fho.pdf. Alfie had his surgery today, along with a neuter which was made more difficult since he was cryptorchid – after a 6-8 week recovery, he will be running and playing again with his brother Sammie. This is an expensive surgery, but it will allow Alfie to run and play again without pain. The costs of this surgery will be $1,000 and any and all donations will be graciously accepted. He is a kind-hearted little boy and deserves to have a pain-free life. PLEASE NOTE: Alfie and Sammie must go to an adult-only household, older teenagers okay.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Alphie and Sammie, a Punta Gorda 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 Punta Gorda, or seeking a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Punta Gorda.

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