This week was a little slower for Buttin -- no appointments but multiple trips to PetSmart for harness fitting. He got in as many walks as possible and was not afraid of walking on a road with regular vehicle traffic. A forever home with someone who is an avid walker will make him very happy -- his long legs could cover more territory than he gets right now! On the other hand with a slow walk, his nose gets quite the work out. He also loves the fenced back yard and spends his time checking for new smells each day. With tail wagging, he met our young neighbor dog through the fence. No barking just lots of tail wagging.

Buttin continues to eat well and enjoy his bully sticks. He showed us he does know how to play fetch with his plush "Flash" toy, but he's not interested in playing every day. We thought the "Flash" toy fit him well as we're sure if the door stayed open, he'd be off in a "Flash." So, sit and stay practice is important. Practice with "down" has been a priority this week as Buttin thought the people bed was his and didn't want to share. He had a temper tantrum when told to move over so he has to learn that the people own the bed. He hadn't displayed any guarding behavior so this was a surprise.

Of course, lots of pats and petting were enjoyed along with belly rubs. He pats whoever he's next to when he wants a pat. Is this a Yorkie trait? Not sure but all our Yorkies have done this so must be. Next Monday he goes for his surgery prep blood work and we'll find out when he'll have his neuter surgery. He'll take some Trazadone beforehand to help him stay calm -- being poked with a needle is just not fun. Wish him luck and stay tuned for more of his adventures as he prepares for his journey to a forever home -- Is that yours???

P.S. Foster Mom didn't get any new pictures this week, but keep watching because she wants to catch me in a great pose with my new turquoise harness and my "Flash" toy!

Buttin is staying with Julia in Fairfax, VA.

YOUR generosity is appreciated!

1. Yorkies do not usually get along well with small children and can be injured by small children, even ones who love them. Be aware of this and keep them apart. 2. Yorkies can be very difficult (nearly impossible) to housebreak. If you are gone for more than 3 hours at a time, the dog will have to have access to wee wee pads, or need someone to stop in to let him out to potty.
3. We almost NEVER get a puppy (less than one year old) in Yorkie Rescue. If only a puppy will do, check the Yorkshire Terrier Club of America website for a recommended breeder - never buy over the Internet, or from a newspaper ad or a petstore. The heartache you save will be immeasureable.
4. There is no such thing as a "teacup" Yorkie, so don't be misled by such a description. LEARN about the breed BEFORE you decide to adopt.
5. You will need to make arrangements to drive and meet the dog at the foster home which can be in New Jersey, western PA, Maryland,  etc. The dog's biography lists where the dog is fostering. We want you to meet the dog with your family and your dog, if you have one. This is a requirement for adoption.

Adoption donations generally vary from dog to dog, it depends on the health, the age and the size of the dog.

Young Yorkies will have a higher adoption donation since they are the most highly sought after and they help to cover the costs of the older dogs who have a harder time finding a loving home. It is sad but true that people overwhelming demand very young dogs when they would be infinitely happier with a mellow adult. 


Save A Yorkie Rescue prefers to adopt only in the PA, NJ, western NY, DE, MD, VA, some CT area's. If you are in the NYC area or near Long Island, there is a Yorkie Rescue closer to you. 

Be aware that you will be asked to drive to meet and pick up your dog.
