My story

Name: Rupert
Breeds: Yorkie
Age: Senior
Sex: Male
Size: Small

Rupert is a middle-aged Yorkie who is looking for a home who wants a loving little lap-sitting best friend. Rupert loves nothing more than people, snuggles, and being someone's best friend. He is good with dogs, ignores cats, and friendly to all people though best with older kids/adults since he is a little guy at only 9 lbs. He is housetrained, is content in his crate and will sometimes go nap in there, and knows his manners. He is a mellow, older gentleman who doesn't demand much more than love, food, and a soft bed. He does have something called dry eye where his eyes don't make enough tears on their own so he needs daily drops in his eyes to keep him comfortable. He is a patient little champ and doesn't mind them at all. His vision isn't 100% but he gets around just fine and it doesn't stop him from living his best life.

Requirements: No special requirements

Adoption Fee: $500 + tax. This includes neuter/spay, current vaccinations as age appropriate, heartworm/tick testing in dogs over 8 months of age, deworming, microchip and current Heartgard and Nexgard preventatives.

Why adoption is a great option

Rupert, a Minneapolis 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 Minneapolis, or seeking a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Minneapolis.

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