UPDATED BIO 01/28/2013: SOPHIA is 13 years old and weighs a skinny 5 lbs 10 oz; she is being fostered in The Villages, FL. Sophia has overcome her initial shyness in her foster home and is sooooo sweet and loves to cuddle. She is getting along fine with Frankie, the little yorkie in the home, so she gets along well with other dogs. Sophia's eye infection has cleared up and she saw the vet today who said she is a healthy little senior girl ~ yippee! Couldn't you use a little more love in your life? If so, Sophia could be your sweetheart! Please don't turn aay from Sophia because of her age - she still has a whole lotta love to give...........
INITIAL BIO 1/20/13: My name is Sophia. I am 12 years old and am being fostered in The Villages, FL. I weigh a skinny 8 lbs. Yesterday, my owner had to rehome me with United Yorkie Rescue because he couldn't take care of me anymore. When I was younger, I used to go everywhere with him. I am a good little traveler and liked to hang out with him at work. Since he had less time for me, he thought there might be a family out there who would have the time to love a little old lady like me. I love to snuggle. I love to go for short walks. Did I mention I love to snuggle? Right now, I am being treated for an eye infection. That's why the dogtor shaved my face. I say, "That's okay. Hair grows back!." :) Well, stay tuned as my foster mom gets to know me better. I am looking for a snuggle buddy. Could it be you?
Rescue Group Info...
United Yorkie Rescue, Inc. was founded on August 5, 2002, by a group of loyal and hard-working rescue friends. We consolidated our efforts and talents to form a family dedicated to the rescue and well being of the Yorkshire Terrier. We have pledged to rescue all Yorkies and Yorkie mixes in need regardless of size, age, or health condition. In addition, we are devoted to providing love, nourishment, rehabilitation, socialization, and "pawesome" forever homes!! Please visit our website at http://unitedyorkierescue.org for more information about our rescue.
Our dogs are in private foster homes all throughout the country. The first step in adopting one of our homeless Yorkies is the completion an adoption application, making sure all fields are filled out.
Please go to our website and read our frequently asked questions before emailing the foster parent for more information. Most questions can be answered on our site. Once your adoption application is received, the foster parent will be in touch with you to discus the adoption process. Keep in mind we receive many inquiries on our dogs. We are staffed solely by volunteers and will get back to you as soon as possible.
Please visit our website http://www.unitedyorkierescue.org to fill out an adoption application. It is non-binding, but it is often the best way to start meaningful communication with each foster parent.
