Adoption Fee: $325 Age: 6.5 years Weight: 12.7 lbs. Email: yorkietude@yahoo.com Fostered in Lago Vista, Texas NICO IS A SHIH-TZU/MALTESE MIX! 6/26/24 - Hey everyone. Nico here. I went to the specialist on Monday and he gave me some news that I’ve somewhat heard before, but frankly was surprised. It seems my left acl is torn and on my right, there is a partial tear. You would not really know it. I am the happiest little man and love running and playing, but yep, somehow, I’ve managed to mess up both back legs. So, the plan is that on July 1st, just around the corner, the doctor will operate on my left leg and then I will have to rest for 4 weeks. Then we will look into fixing the right. I know this is going to cost a lot, but my foster mom said that I am worth it and that it is important to fix them now before it gets worse. So, if you don’t mind, say a couple prayers for me and think of me on July 1st. I’d really appreciate it. I’ve been in my foster home long enough now to give everyone an update on what my personality and the permanent home that would fit me best. I am currently in a foster home with other dogs and I am doing great with them. I tend be passive, as I don’t mind other dogs in my space, but if one of them shows any “warning” signs, I will match that energy. So, let’s just say, I won’t start it, but I can finish it. I love sleeping in the bed with foster mom and the other fur-babies. I am a hearty eater and I clean my bowl every time. My idea of playing with toys is to pick up one, shake it around a little bit and then walk away. Foster mom says that I am doing well in the potty-training department, but do have a few accidents here and there. I’m blaming these on a little anxiety when my person leaves right at first. Also, don’t even think about opening the door for me to go out to potty on my own. Not going to happen. I need my person with me or I’m not going. I’m really attached to foster mom, but if you want to know a secret, I love all people! So, if you like giving and getting attention, and don’t mind a handsome shadow, you just might be the person for me. Just no little ones in the house please. They make me nervous and I’m just not myself around them. Foster mom says I walk fine on a leash, but can be timid when outside the house. It’s too hot outside right now anyway. Let’s just go in the backyard and sit on the patio furniture. I love laying on the couch with my human, but I’ll need a little help getting up and down. I will occasionally use the doggy stairs, but I’d rather just be picked up. Truth be told, I would lay in my human’s lap ALL DAY LONG if they would let me. Not a huge kisser currently. Guess I just never learned that activity, but I do watch my foster fur-siblings kiss on foster mom and it seems like fun. Apartment life probably isn’t for me since I do know how to use my voice. When I see anyone passing by, I let them know that they will not be arriving unnoticed. Household noises don’t really faze me. Oh, I’m also vey good taking a bath and being groomed. Truth be told, I love spa day. Pamper me all you want. Foster mom is always telling me how smart I am. She’s right, and I don’t mind hearing it. I kind of dance to the beat of my own drum. I’m usually the first one to do things and don’t need another dog to follow me. To sum me up, I’m just a happy, sweet, handsome guy that is looking for a mom and or dad to adopt and love me. We can turn from strangers into family without the same blood, but with the same love. Are you that special someone who will give me a second chance at life and a new beginning? 4/30/24 - Nico came to YHR because he was not happy sharing time and space with the 3 small grandchildren coming to his previous home. Also, he had supposedly torn both of his ACLs and needed to visit a specialist to see if they were in fact torn and needed surgery and that was just all too much. He’s now in his foster home and his evaluation with the specialist is scheduled for May 2nd. Then we will definitely know what needs to be done and we can get on it. He is a very happy boy in his foster home and is fine around the other dogs. He loves sleeping in the bed with his foster mom and has an all-around pleasant personality. We are still accessing his personality and will update after his upcoming appointment.

Story
My baby Blu is a 6 year old pure bred shih Tzu. He’s loving, funny and oh so adorable. Unfortunately, over the years my living circumstances have changed and I have had to move into a home with young kids. Blu hates change and doesn’t do well with loud, overly active characters. He’s a highly anxious dog that is very protective of those he loves. He needs a small family with no young kids to love and snuggle him everyday. He loves his toys and his food. I am willing to negotiate on fees for the right family ❤️ please only apply if you’re familiar with dogs with behavioral issues (anxiety, etc)

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.All dogs listed here are available for adoption from Yorkie Rescue Houston.  Our goal is to ensure our rescued pets go to their forever home and never end up back in the system.  To that end, an application is required on all potential adopters.   Our adoption fee varies by dog.  We accept electronic funds via VENMO or Paypal, or cash only. Puppies too young to be spayed/neutered are available for Foster-to-Adopt only.  A FTA contract is required.   BITE HISTORY NO CHILDRENRolly is a happy, playful young boy. He is coming out of his shell as he learns to trust. He is slowly starting to get along with other dogs, but much prefers to be one-on-one with his human. We have started him on pain management and he has become a much happier little guy, so his new forever home should continue this treatment. Rolly was 'confiscated' by BARC on 3/22.  BARC noted: "Rolly was involved in a bite case on 3-21-23.  The victim, a juvenile, attempted to get in the kennel with Rolly.  The result was the victim was bitten on the face.  The bite is described as major and the victim went to the hospital for the bite to be cleaned, there is no other treatment documented. Rolly has been timid but friendly with the shelter staff." It is our FIRM belief this family was negligent.  Not the dog, not the child.  THE PARENT! Because of his past, we believe that Rolly is best suited for a home without young kids. Rolly's ideal home will have no other pets, no children (under 15), and would be best as a 'solo act/only dog' who gets lots of your attention.      Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.July 20, 2024, 10:03 pm
