1/20/14 - Miley felt that it was time to update her bio since her brother will be getting adopted soon.
Miley loves to play ball now with Foster Mom. Just the two of them and Miley loves getting that one on one attention for a little while. She will even bring the ball to her and drop it at her feet.
She does like to sit in Foster Mom’s lap now for short snuggle periods a couple times a day. She wasn’t used to socializing much previously with her humans, so it is new to her but she is showing that she loves to snuggle and petted.
Miley is a very smart little girl, but still wants to be the boss, so will still do best in a home with no other dogs. One where she is the only baby, but her owner(s) will need to be consistent with directions since Miley thrives on this. She loves to please, but can be your typical bull headed yorkie.
She does fine with her baths, loves to ride in the car and is even doing well with her daily teeth brushing.
Miley is a great gal that can more than make a mom and/or dad happy in the companion department. She just doesn’t need a pushover since Miley is not a pushover and loves to be kept on her paws. Lol
11/22/13 - We are finding out that Miley and Beau ARE NOT as bonded as we thought in the beginning. While they have been in their foster home, they have started going their own way and we are starting to see that theirs was a marriage of convenience. Not that they couldn’t be adopted together for someone who wanted two dogs that are brother and sister, but if someone just wants an adorable female with a mind of her own, that isn’t very clingy to humans, but does want attention, Miley is your gal. Miley has a very strong personality, so while she gets along with Beau, her brother, she doesn’t necessarily do well with multiple pups and would be a perfect single dog. Miley just needs to be boss and gets overstimulated easily. She is a great gal and is super smart and takes direction great, just needs someone that wants more of an equal rather than a submissive, clingy baby. She does, however, love to have her toys thrown by her humans.
11/6/13 - Miley and Beau were surrendered recently to YHR when their previous family did not have enough time for them. They are brother and sister from the same litter and have very different personalities, but are very bonded, so will have to be adopted together. Please read each of their bios for information about their individual traits.
Miley is a great little lady that is independent and doesn’t need as much human interaction as Beau does. She will come up and sit with you to be petted, but will leave when she tires of sitting with you and goes and plays with her toys. She simply adores balls and will even bring them to you to throw.
Miley has had a couple run ins with the other pups in the home, but we believe it is because she is used to being in control with Beau. She will let Beau put her in line if she is doing something he doesn’t like, but acts as if it were “her” idea to stop the unwanted behavior. She loves laying with Beau and letting him lick on her ears and being the “big brother” so to speak.
She is an adorable baby who has a great zest for life. Beau and Miley love playing together and play very rough. Both tend to run over the other dogs in the foster home when outside playing. They are just bulls in a china shop when at play and don’t watch for anyone else. Lol They are strong dogs and aren’t the most dainty when mingling with other pups.
Miley is definitely a leader and has alpha tendencies. It would be best if they were both in a home with NO OTHER DOGS since Miley loves to run the show and even though Beau doesn’t mind this, she tends to try to run everyone in her foster home and it can cause tension. Both are very hearty eaters and will steal food from other pups if they finish first.
Miley is doing well with potty training just as long as she isn’t left too long. She will definitely need a fenced in yard to run and play in. They will both alert you to the doorbell ringing at the house or on tv or any other noises that they think aren’t normal.
Miley does well with baths and grooming. She is a good jumper and can get on furniture and isn’t shy about jumping up or down. Nothing timid about this girl. She’ll try anything once. When on the sofa, Miley likes to sit up higher on the back so she can feel like she is watching over her pack. If she sits by you, she won’t stay long if she can’t have your lap. If in a chair, she and Beau will sit together touching each other. Both do well riding in the car and seem to enjoy it.
These two really complement each other so well and are a perfect match. With these two, you get the best of both worlds, male/female, independent/needy all in one.
