Tango's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, and a special needs pet.

Tango's Story...
Tiny Tango is enjoying his new life after being released from a breeder. We are still evaluating him as he just arrived in rescue, and will update when we have more information. He is calm and easy going, but also curious, and is happily exploring his new surroundings. Tango is friendly, and loves being with other dogs--he needs an adoptive home with another dog to be his companion. His little tail wags frequently, and he is adapting quickly. Tango's foster mom is teaching him skills to live in a home, and can give you an update on his progress when you submit an application to adopt. All Tango needs now is a special human companion to enjoy his new life adventures with him--could that be you?

Tango weighs 7.5 lbs, is black and tan in color, and 10 years young. His adoption fee is $150 or a reasonable donation, and includes a dental and all of our vetting, below. He is being fostered by Sherri and family in Copley, OH. Not all our dogs are totally house trained at the time of adoption. We crate train them or potty pad train and work on potty skills. When your application is approved, you will speak with the foster Mom and can get more information about how far along the foster dog is in potty and social skills. Dogs learn quickly and most are pretty far along or trained by the time of adoption, however you should always expect some adjustment when moving a dog to a new home.

Tango has been examined by our vet, has had a 5/1 annual shot, a rabies shot and tag, has been dewormed, heartworm tested and passed, and has been spayed or neutered before adoption. Our rescues are on flea/tick and heartworm monthly preventatives in season. We also do a dental if our vet deems it necessary, which is included in our adoption fee. Our adoption fee covers all vetting expenses and a small donation to cover the dogs' food and care.

We send your new dog home with a copy of all vet paperwork, adoption papers, a small bag of the dog food they have been eating and information on taking care of the dog. Also included is a health folder for your vet and notes from our foster mom on the dog's schedule, habits and socialization skills. We do not require a fenced yard on all of our dogs, it is on a as needed basis. HOWEVER if you don't have a fenced yard we do require you to purchase an exercise pen (>$60 on internet) so that the dog can be safe when outside; SMALL DOGS CAN NOT BE TIED OUT.

We adopt our rescue dogs to adopters in Ohio and some other states within driving distance of the foster family. We do NOT ship our dogs--the adoptive parents must meet the dog at the foster mother's home. This will give the adoptive family a chance to meet the dog before they adopt it. Our dogs are fostered in NE Ohio and surrounding areas. Please make sure you are willing to drive to pick up the dog within 2 weeks of being approved, and check the distance to the foster home per the location above.

Please visit our website to learn more about our adoption procedures and policies. From there you can also submit an adoption application, meet our volunteers and benefit from the 9+ years of rescue experience of our all-volunteer, non-profit rescue!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Tango, a North Benton 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 North Benton, or seeking a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog from a breeder in North Benton.

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