Prior to adding a new dog to your family, please visit www.justdogbreeds.com to learn about the various personalities and characteristics which will assist in matching the right dog to your lifestyle.
Our PETFINDER home page may answer any questions you have about our policies and practices. If you have specific questions about the dog not made clear in this listing, please feel free to ask, keeping in mind that the FIRST STEP TOWARD ADOPTION is to submit an application.
It is important to realize that there is ALWAYS a period of adjustment when adding a rescue dog to a family, which will take time and patience and understanding. Some require more time and patience than others and there may very well be an issue or two to work through in order to learn the rules of the house and to adjust to the new environment.
Please remember, THERE ARE NO PERFECT DOGS, no matter what the background. Dogs generally become what you make of them through your efforts, love, patience, and understanding. And--if you are willing to overlook their slight imperfections, they will certainly overlook yours!
Royal is about 8 1/2 pounds; birthdate 6/07.
He was given up on by his previous owners. It is my opinion that any behavior problems were as a result of their failure to neuter him. He has been neutered a short time and as time goes on, he is becoming more and more well adjusted.
He gets along with most dogs. He is okay with the cat
I was told he was housebroken and never had an accident, but how would they know. He was kept as an outdoor dog as evidenced by the mud caked in his pads--and they had him shaved down shorter than you see in this picture. A yorkie is not an outdoor dog, especially in inclement weather. The marking due to being intact is subsiding. He is eager to please and is easily corrected when needed.
He is a loving little dog and loves to be held and cuddled.
He likes to sleep in bed with his family.
He could be happy as an only dog or in a home with another small dog playmate.
We do process the applications in the order that they are received. We cannot guarantee any particular dog will still be available by the time we get to your application. We cannot respond to each application or keep you updated as we go along. We do not consider a dog adopted until the process has been completed and a contract has been signed. As long as the dog is still listed, it is still available and we are processing applications. As soon as a dog is adopted, it is removed from the list. If you apply and your application is approved, we will contact you. If you decide not to wait or find another dog, please let us know so we can go on to another application.
