Houston's Story...
UPDATED BIO: 10/09/2013: Hi everypuppy!! The vet says I am more like 1.5 years old versus 3 years old :). That explains why I'm so playful!!!!!

INITIAL BIO: 01/08/2013 Hi my name is Houston! I'm a Yorkie Silky Terrier mix. My foster mommy named me Houston because apparently I was trying to walk all the way to Houston, Texas when I was found as a stray on the streets. I was taken to a high kill shelter, and was very scared until UYR came to save me. I’m staying with my foster mommy who lives in Miami, Florida. Even though her house is far from the actual beach side, it is still paradise compared to the shelter. You can tell that I am very sweet and approachable because I don’t bark much. All I want in this new year is for someone to love me and make me part of their home. My foster mom thinks I’m about 3 years old and weigh 11.6 lbs. I am a little skinny and can afford to gain a pound or two. Since I was found as a stray, I love going for long walks (Houston anyone?). I am even up for helping you out with that New Year’s resolution by taking you for a run. Please come back soon and check for my updates. I gotta go now; my foster mommy is calling me. If you have any questions about adopting me please email my foster mom :)

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Houston, a Miami Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier/Silky Terrier puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier/Silky Terrier for sale in Miami, or seeking a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier/Silky Terrier puppy from a breeder in Miami.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Miami 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 Miami 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/Silky Terrier breeders who help with Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier/Silky Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Miami paves the way for another one to be saved.
