Seriously! This is our Yorkshire Terrier, Pepper, at her first Weight Pull attempt. With a bit of assistance at first she was able to pull a 50 pound cart, pretty impressive considering that’s more than six times her body weight. No qualifying score for her yet, but we might try again.
“Jill” was an owner turn-in slated for euthanasia at a Tuscaloosa shelter before she was pulled by rescue. We are fostering until a forever home is found. Jill is an older girl (about 7+ years old in a breed who routinely live 16-18+ years). She is spayed, microchipped, current on all vaccinations, and is on heartworm preventative. Jill weighs about 10 pounds. She is free of internal and external parasites. Jill is fine with baths, blow-drying, and nail care. She will walk on a lead, seems house-trained, and gets along with the other dogs at her foster home. No signs of aggression or fear. She is very sweet and mild and enjoys being with both women and men. Jill would like to be someone’s couch-potato or bed-buddy. She is definitely an inside pet. Jill has recently had her teeth cleaned and been professionally groomed. An application and interview are required as well as a modest adoption fee to partially cover expenses.
Jill needs a forever home!
Okay, so she’s not a corgi. Jill is a Yorkshire Terrier who was about to be euthanized at the Tuscaloosa shelter. A rescue contact asked me on Wednesday if we could foster her. Since we planned to pass right through Tuscaloosa on the way to the Hattiesburg shows the following day, it seemed as though it was meant to be. She still needs a decent haircut – what does a corgi person know about cutting Yorkie hair? – and a teeth cleaning, both of which will be done before she is placed, but otherwise, she is simply a lovely girl. Jill had no problem with me giving her a bath, and another bath, and a blow dry, and then proceeded directly onto the travel trailer sofa where, except for overnights in our bed <g>, she spent the rest of the weekend. Jill is up-to-date on shots, spayed, microchipped, seems housebroken, walks on a leash, and gets along with everybody at my house. Are you in need of a lap-warmer?
