Zippy's Story...
Why Choose me?
If Zippy and I ran a race, there’s no doubt that he would win. This little boy is fast which may well be how he ended up at Animal Control. He has obviously been cared for. His body has been shaved and the hair around his face trimmed. Zippy is fine on a leash, and if you call him, he’ll come to see what you want. Then he’s off to to check out his surroundings and dart from one side of the interaction pen to the other. If you want to hold Zippy, he shifts into low gear because he likes being held. He also likes Pup-Peroni treats. When I tapped the bench to see if he would jump up on it, he did, and then he was down again. When I tapped it and held a treat for him, he stayed. At last! In fact, Zippy knows how to stay very well for a treat. He can sit for a treat, too. Zippy is a cutie and had lots of visitors today. Come meet this sweet boy–there’s never a dull moment with Zippy around!

Act quickly to adopt Zippy. Pets at this Shelter may be held for only a short time.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Zippy, a Athens 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 Athens, or seeking a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Athens.

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