“I had a yorkie dog from the dog pound. I have no idea what breed she was. She saved me from being mugged twice because the creep underestimated her ability to fly up and bite him. Then growl and chase him. She weighed about 55 lbs and lived to be l4. She was short legged and shaggy. Not pretty as pretty dogs go but funny and clever and I loved her and would replace her if I could. Now if there is there anything you would like to say about designer dogs I would just have to ask you what do you expect from a dog?. Long live the pound yorkie dogs.”– by boris
“I do have a new yorkie dog. I rescued him when he was about 8 weeks old from a backyard breeder. He is a German Shepherd maybe mixed with something. I’m not sure. His name is Daniel and he has a big job filling Tazzy’s paws but he is a big sweetheart and makes my heart sing because I miss Tazzy so much. Interestingly, Taz died on 9-11-11. He was my hero and everyone in my neighborhood was sad when he passed.” — Miriam
“All our dogs are shelter yorkie dogs, 2 were given to us because the owners could not keep them (did not have time for them). We also foster we have a pit mix that just had 5 babies. She was scheduled to be put down before she was rescued and we took her in. We also rescued a mix not sure what he is but he was also going to be put down for flipping his head! The shelter said he had issues.. still do not know what they are he is the easiest going yorkie dog we have very loving and gentle. I am not sure what guidelines they use to decide a dog is not fit? I think its we don’t have room so choose a dog to be put down! How I see it is our gain their loss!” — Ann
The best pet is one that needs a home. I have gotten a shitzu from a family getting a divorce, a hound yorkie dog from a family that had 4 dogs and wanted to move out of state, and my current shitzu from the humane society. he was the last one because he had a limp. big deal he is super the limp has been no problem at all. I have had 2 blind dogs and one that had only 3 legs, none of these things were problems. In fact the one that had only 3 legs was quite a pistol. Can you picture him sitting on the front porch wearing a muzzle, well that was Perky never to be forgotten and he has been gone over 50 years.
