Gracie's Story...
Initial Bio 11-25-2012: Gracie is an 8 year old, 5.5 pound Yorkie that came to UYR as an owner-surrender. Her owner passed away in September and Gracie has been living with his daughter and family. Unfortunately, the 2-year old son is extremely allergic to many things, and they decided they could not keep Gracie. She is an absolutely fabulous little girl, everything anyone could want in a Yorkie! She’s very sweet, loves to cuddle, loves to take walks, and has been a regular at the groomer’s. Apparently she was needing a new bow every week to keep up her fashion statements, so loves to be brushed and combed! Rosie has experienced separation anxiety since losing her owner, so she will need to be adopted into a home where someone is home a good portion of the time, gone for only short periods. She is used to going outside fairly often, and if taken out, is completely house-broken. If left too long, apparently, she will have an accident. This hasn't happened since she’s been with her foster mom, though. Gracie settled in quickly, and has even been accepted by her very picky foster brother! She’s a very easy, happy dog, and would love to find her forever home.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Gracie, a Austin 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 Austin, or seeking a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Austin.

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