Hank's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, and up to date with shots.

Hank's Story...
Hank is Chorkie (Chihuahua/Yorkie mix.) He is 10 months old and weighs just 16 lbs. He was sold by his breeder as a designer dog for $250. The young man who initially purchased him had to go to jail. He asked a kind lady to keep Hank for him while she was in jail. She kept Hank for three months, but hadn't planned on keeping him forever. The jailed owner eventually told her "just to keep him." Since she couldn't do that, she surrendered him to ARF on 9/18/13. Hank is sweet, a little needy, has a docked tail, and is in the process of getting all his shots and being neutered on September 20th. He will be available for after adoption on September 21.

For more information about Hank, call his foster home at (828) 293-5629 or e-mail (828) 269-8322. Hank will be at ARF pet adoptions on Saturdays 1-3 until he is adopted.

For his $100 adoption fee Hank will be up-to-date on shots, have had a negative heartworm test, and have been neutered. Hank is housebroken.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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