My story

Meet Blue, a sweet 8 year old, 6 pound Yorkie boy being fostered in southern California. Only southern CA applicants will be considered.
Update 6/4/22: We decided that Blue needed another X-ray because his cough wasnt improving. Thankfully, after waiting countless hours, our vet confirmed that there is no problem with his trachea, but he still had some leftover inflammation. He is currently on mild steroids to correct his leftover cough. So far, after 2 weeks on it, his cough has happily subsided. We could tell he felt much better since we saw him run for the first time since arriving and wags his little tail fast whenever someone arrives home. We are monitoring him to see how he does once we ween off of his medication. On 5/24 he was neutered and had dental cleaning. His teeth are now sparkling white, and he has the brightest smile out of our dogs at home despite losing 7 teeth.

Blue is adjusting very well at his new foster home. He gets along with other dogs that are calm and mellow. He is definitely a lap dog once he feels secured and will put his paws on your legs when he wants to be cuddled. He loves his blankets and sometimes we find him sleeping in our clothes baskets. He is so attached already! He will need a forever home with someone that can take him everywhere since he does well in the car and does not like to be left alone. He doesnt squirm when being carried and is so tiny he can fit in a purse calmly. We can definitely see this little guy traveling the world!

Initial Bio 5/4/22: Blue came to us as a stray from Pasadena Humane Society and after a couple of wagging tails, he was already settled in. We fell in love with his calm and affectionate demeanor right away. However, we immediately noticed his severe coughing and loud exhales which the shelter thought was a collapsed trachea. Knowing this, we felt helpless hearing him cough and struggle to breathe throughout the night, the poor thing barely getting any sleep and continuing in the morning. When all hope seemed to be lost, our beloved vet informed us that Blue just had a cold, so he will be comfortable very soon after giving him the right medication. We are still waiting on some lab work, but this handsome little boy weighs 6 lbs and is suspected to be 8 years old. Despite his struggle, he never stopped trying to sit on our laps and ask for pets and food. He never wants to be alone, following us everywhere and whining when we leave the room. He gets along so well with all of the Yorkie friends we have and stays calm without a bark even during the most loud doggie commotions. Since he has only been with us for a couple of days, we are so excited to see how he will come out of his shell and be part of a family again.
