ANGELITE's Story...
INITIAL BIO 10/29/2013: MEET ANGELITE! She is a beautiful 9 year old 5 lb 7 oz yorkshire terrier; she is being fostered in Saint Johns, FL.


Angelite was surrendered by her owner, who had her since she was a puppy. She was surrendered because there was a new baby in the house and Angelite was banned to the garage, where she spent her days and nights. Poor Angelite’s nails were so long that it was painful for her to walk; and her eyes were almost swollen shut with infection. Several years ago, Angelite was diagnosed with Severe Dry Eye (Keratoconjunctivitis Sicca) and prescribed an RX medication to put in both eyes 2x a day; the medication was never purchased and little Angelite suffered as a result of this painful condition. It’s likely that her vision may have been affected as well; however, now that she is on the proper medication, we are hopeful that her vision will improve. We are sure she feels better already.


Angelite needs to build up her muscle mass as she hasn’t exercised much in the past few years so she is taking short walks with her foster brothers and mom until she can work up to longer walks. Her foster brothers are very gentle and tender with her…..so sweet! Foster Mom has a stroller that she brings along for one of her brothers and Angelite hitches a ride in that when she tires out. She is a curious little girlie and her personality will soon begin to blossom now that she is feeling better each day. Angelite had not had vaccinations in several years so those had to be brought up-to-date and she was not spayed, either, so that will be done very soon. Any donations towards these medical expenses will be appreciated as this little angel certainly deserves the best life has to offer for the rest of her life.


She appears to be house-trained as long as there is someone home to take her out often; her perfect home would be one in which there was at least one stay-at-home person since she loves being with her person after spending so much time alone and without human contact. She is a very sweet little girl who loves to sit beside her person ~ she would be a great companion for a retired couple or empty-nesters who want a sweet and lovable little companion. PLEASE NOTE: Because of her small size, she cannot be adopted into a home with children under the age

Why Adoption is a Great Option

ANGELITE, a Jacksonville 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 Jacksonville, or seeking a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Jacksonville.

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