(when grown) Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
Spayed or Neutered,
Scotty is a 19 pound 100% Yorkie (yes, they come that big). He is looking for a nice quiet home where he can give plenty of love and cuddles. He's one of the smartest dogs you'll meet and is 100% house-trained and knows commands like sit, stay, down, leave it, shake, paw, turn around and more. He loves running around a back yard and getting energy out / chasing squirrels.
He's faced several challenges in his life, but with the right person, he'll thrive!
Scotty had a burst disc in his back that was surgically repaired almost 3 years ago, so he shouldn't be encouraged to jump and shouldn't be allowed to jump on and off of beds, furniture, etc.
He is a reactive dog, so the quieter the home, the better. He reacts to knocks at the door, the mailman, or if in the backyard - people or dogs in the next yard. On walks he might bark and lunge if someone surprises him by suddenly exiting a car/house or flying by on a bike. Otherwise he loves walks.
He needs some work learning to be friendly to guests. He'll be loving and calm down quickly for guests he's seen several times, but new guests are a bit of a struggle, but can be managed with patience and practice.
To help with some of that and general anxiety, he is on several meds he gets every 8 hours, so the best home is someone that can continue that schedule and the cost financially (approx. $70/mo).
Scotty loves to follow you around and would be best with someone who is home a lot of the time.
He gets along well with other dogs, even if he is a little "bossy and wants to be the alpha.
No small children. He has not been tested with cats.
Scotty is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped
