UPDATED BIO 02/26/2013: Hello Everyone - I'm the “Missus” that my told you about. He and I are both 8 ½ years old and weigh about 9 lbs.
Mister and I are really settling into our new foster home that we share with our Foster Mom, our Foster Dad and an African Grey Parrot called Bogie. We actually are all getting along nicely. Being the Missus, there are certain things that I prefer, like being the first in FD's lap and being the first to have FD put the leash on and being the first to go out the door. Fortunately, my Mister never complains (he's so laid-back). I love to have my hair brushed - it's quite curly and very pretty (I'm told). I'm not so crazy about baths. I hold onto my FM really tight while she washes me. I must admit it does feel good being wrapped up in a towel and hugged.
It seems that I have some kind of allergy and can only eat sweet potatoes and fish dog food - no meat or meat by-products. I've never slept in a human bed, but the past few nights, I slept in the big bed with FD (while FM worked). Hey, I'm kinda likin' that. The Mister and I will be going to the dogtor Friday, and we'll let you know how that goes. Stay tuned………….

UPDATED BIO 02/26/2013: Hello Everyone - I'm the “Mister” part of Mister and Missus. She and I are both 8 ½ years old and weigh about 9 lbs. We have always been together in our former home and must be adopted together.
Me and my Missus arrived at our Foster Home a few days ago. At first, it was very scary and lonely. My Missus and I kept looking out the door and windows, but our FM (that's short for Foster Mom) and FD (you got the idea by now) paid lots of attention to us and played with us and made us feel right at home. They explained to us that our owner, who we were with all of our lives, really, really loved us, but she couldn't give us the home that she knew we needed and that this was a very unselfish thing for her to do for us.
Let me describe myself…… (I'll let the Missus do her own thing...). I'm a very handsome Silky Terrier with penetrating brown eyes, and I listen to everything everyone says. I'm quite laid-back and go along with just about anything. I prefer to do my business outside, but if FM or FD are not home when I have to go, I use the wee-wee pad they left for us. I've never slept in a human bed, but the other day I did take a nap with my FM (she works nights), and it was really nice. We go for lots of walks and I love exploring new places. Before everyone goes to bed at night, I like to rest in the chair with either FM or FD while they watch TV. It turns out that they're excellent back scratchers. I'll let you read up on my Missus now. Stay tuned for more info on me and the Missus.

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.
