My story

Max is being fostered in IL

Hi Folks-

My name is Max and people say that I am cute as a button, because….well…. I am! I am a pampered, very well cared for 10 year old and still have a lot of sass in my attitude and pep in my step.

Due to circumstances beyond my control, I find myself in the position of searching for a new human who would enjoy a constant companion to spoil. That is the job that gives me pleasure and I do it well. I will sit by your side on the sofa at all times. If you are busy somewhere else in the house, I will curl up in my dog bed nearby or follow you so you know that I am hard at work and you don’t miss me. If I get a little bored, I amuse myself with squeaky, squeaky, squeaky toys. I love squeaky toys! If that is a sound that you find annoying, you need not apply.

Don’t get me wrong. I do not merely lie around the house. I enjoy an adventure as much as the next pup. I have fun taking little walks several times a day and exploring nature. I ride well in a car, so I can accompany you wherever you go. It makes me very unhappy when you leave me at home alone, but I will behave and will greet you expecting hugs the minute you return.

This probably all sounds pretty good to you, but I should let you know that I am not perfect. My vision is not so great because of my cataracts, but it doesn’t get me down. I still have my hearing which is exceptional (even for a dog) as you might have guessed from my photo. I require structure in my routine as I must be fed measured portions at the same times each day, followed shortly after with insulin. This is a big commitment from my human, but I make it very easy. I am patient for my meals and I do not fuss or complain about taking my shots.

So if you are a committed human with an uncluttered schedule, looking for a devoted companion to fill your home with puppy love and don’t mind the sound of squeaky toys, you just might be the person for me.

Why adoption is a great option

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

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