Yorkshire Terrier

Blind puppy saved from euthanasia looking for love

There have been a couple of stories lately that have made me shake my head in complete incomprehension – here’s another one.

How beautiful is little Bea? Yet all her breeder could see of her was that she would not “sell”. So to that breeder, the tiny puppy was no longer worth anything, and was taken to the vet, at just FIVE WEEKS OLD, to be put to sleep.

I’ll let that sink in for a second. This gorgeous little Yorkshire Terrier was condemned before her life had really started, due to a disability which will not stop her living a happy life.


Barney and Bea

Bea and Barney play together. Both were rescued from irresponsible breeders.

Tiny Bea was almost put to sleep by her breeder because she is blind.

Yorkshire Terrier fostering litter of kittens

This is Bridget, the 10 year old Yorkshire Terrier who lost two puppies of her own, and is now fostering a litter of kittens at the Humane Society of Utah. Apparently Bridget and her babies are all doing very well.

Take care,

Christmas present dogs already being abandoned

This is heartbreaking. The latest press release from Dogs Trust:
Christmas present pups handed in to Dogs Trust rescue centres

We all know “A Dog is for Life, Not just for Christmas” yet sadly this was not the case for puppies “Cluedo” and “Scrabble” who were handed in to Dogs Trust rehoming centres today, 28th December 2011.  


Will and Kate

11-year-old crossbreed, Will, is a handsome, confident boy who looks after his ‘other half’ Kate, a pretty Yorkie. Will and Kate are as inseparable as their royal namesakes and are hoping to continue their lifelong friendship in a new home. They would love a quiet home with someone who can take them on gentle walks.

Paradise our chatty-cathy yorkie

Paradise is a Yorkie-mix don't quite know with what, the lady that gave him to us told us that the was a Shorkie. He has all of the marking and coloring of a Yorkie, although I didn't cut his tail or have his ears clipped. His tail is so beautiful, full and long that it would have been shame to have cut it.
He trys to hold conversations with us by growling in different tones, and can be quite pushy sometimes when he wants something. He hits us with his nose when he wants to go to bed, and starts all of his talking.
