Please read entire biography and read the last paragraphs for information how to apply for adoption. Artie is a 1 year old Yorkie-Maltese mix who weighs 8.6lbs. He has a long cut that met the groomers earlier this week so he could be beautified! Artie is a sweetheart who is a little on the shy side initially. He's a bit unsure of all new things but he appears to acclimate fairly quickly once he gets it all figured out. He has a very sweet personality. Artie gets along with some other dogs. He gets overwhelmed by large crowds and does best with those who are more submissive. He is also an option to live by himself. He does like to eat by himself or else he makes all the other dogs wait until he's finished. He doesn't realize he's only 8lbs with some of the bigger dogs who let him be who he is. Artie doesn't mind the cats. Clearly he had never seen them before so he wasn't into their sniffing him and he kept trying to run away, which only made them chase him more! Within a few hours he figured out they weren't some creature going to eat him and he was fine with them. He may even become friends eventually because he has a little bit of a playful side too. Artie loves playing with kids. We prefer because of his size that it be with kids who have experience with a small dog living in their home or are at least 8 years or older if it's a first time dog owning family.
