Yorkshire Terrier Dog For Adoption in SAINT LOUIS, MO

Meet Laverne and Shirley. They are teacup yorkies. One is blue and gold and 5lbs and the other is Black and Tan and 5lbs. They were surrendered as the people had to move and didn't want to take them to kill shelter but they never took them to the vet. It is said that the Black and Tan is 5 and the blue and gold is 11. They were extremely matted to the point they couldn't see and Black stuff had there eyes shut so I got them and brought them home and groomed them myself but they will go to the groomers this weekend and the one has a real bad eye infection so is being treated. They will not have any teeth left when dental is done. They are extremely bonded and the Black and Tan one is shy and loves to snuggle and the blue and gold I would never believe or guess is 11 but that's what I have to go by since that's what they said and she is a lapdog. They will be up for adoption through tri state Yorkie rescue when they are ready and I would prefer they stay together since they have been there whole life. The fee for them both fully vetted will be $500 which includes the spay, extensive dental with all teeth pulled and treatment for the infection in the mouth and eye, all shots, bordetella, microchip with registration, HW test negative, grooming, deworming, Revolution, stool test negative, bloodwork, vet exam, food, leash, collar, harness. They are active but love to sleep with you and be help. They are lapdogs and they are potty trained per owner and if you tell them go in the crate they go together. They are pretty trained and they get along with everything even children as they lived with a 5 year old and 2 teenagers. If you are interested please contact me at 618 579 8119. Fee is firm as I will be spending more then that. You are free to call your vet and check prices as dental alone with teeth being pulled is $500 or more. The teeth are black and all will be pulled so they will eat freshpet grain free bison

Yorkshire Terrier

A.K.A. : Yorkie
Overview: The Yorkshire Terrier is a tiny dog, but this should not be confused with delicacy. They have a strong sense of self and prefer to be treated with respect and no pampering.
Breed Group: Toy
Weight (lbs): Not to exceed 7
Height (in): 8-9
Colors: Blue and tan. Yorkshire Terriers are born black, gradually attaining their blue and tan coloration as they mature.
Coat: Hair is long and silky, which should be fine, glossy and perfectly straight. The fall on the head is long and may head is long, and hair on muzzle is very long.
Character: Yorkshire Terriers become very attached to their families. Known for their intelligence, they bark readily when they sense danger.
Temperament: This breed is very tolerant of children, as long as the kids respect the dog's territory. They can be overly brave when dealing with larger dogs, but they do get along fine with cats and most other household pets.
Care: The Yorkshire Terrier requires intensive brushing and combing on a daily basis or else the coat should be trimmed professionally. Keep the hair out of the eyes with a bow and check the ears often for loose hairs.
Training: This breed responds best to consistent training. With the right approach, learning comes quickly.
Activity: The Yorkshire Terrier can adjust to the activity level of your family, but does enjoy getting out and romping from time to time.

Life Expectancy: 12-15

More About Yorkshire Terrier Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.
