ADOPTED ON 04-07-23 Italy is approximately 5 yrs. old and weighs about 6 lbs. She was surrendered to our rescue and we don’t know details, she came from a family that took very good care of her so we know that she was loved. Italy is spayed and up-to-date on vaccinations.
Italy is extremely sweet and just wants to be near her person. She bonded very quickly with her foster mom and her grandchildren. She will do well a family that knows the breed but with any family that will open their home to a little dog and give her lots of love. She needs a family to help her transition to her new life and give her the stability she needs to feel safe
Yorkshire terriers, affectionately known as the “Yorkie,” and belong to the terrier group. As a general rule, terriers tend to be strong-willed and energetic dogs. The Yorkie is no exception. But you’ll also find a pet Yorkie to be affectionate, loyal, and protective. Some Yorkshire Terriers are indeed dedicated cuddle-bugs. But others act more like tiny terriers, with instincts to chase anything that moves and warn off strangers with a sharp shrill bark. They are loved by humans that love a lapdog but that doesn’t necessarily mean all Yorkies like to sleep on laps all day.
The biggest problems that are reported with Yorkies is that they have to do with how their owners treat them. If you carry your Yorkie everywhere, you’re telling her that you think the world is too terrifying for her to walk around in.
Italy is the cutest most grateful rescue ever. She says “thank you “with her countless kisses. She wants to cuddle next to you on the couch and snuggle up with you in bed. She will lay in a cozy bed at your feet while you work in the kitchen or at your desk. She loves going with you, and is wonderful on car rides and walks. She’s a great eater. Italy is healthy, happy and friendly to all and loves other dogs.
Get your application in, she will not disappoint you as a companion and family member!
