Miley ~ Adoption Pending Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier Adult Female in Youngstown, Ohio

My story
APPLY AT - please don't send inquiries, applications will take priority. She's adorable, she's sweet, she's ready for adoption....she's Miley.This little girl is such a delightful little pup.  She had a lot to deal with when she first came into rescue, as it was discovered upon immediate vetting that she had 3 massive bladder stones that were causing her extreme discomfort and a considerable amount of straining and time to try to urinate. She also had the start of pyometra and was battling a bladder infection at the same time.  Add in horribly long nails and fleas.  A greasy dull coat, combined with severely dry skin and flaking was indicative of likely having poor nutrition for some time.  After surgery to remove the massive bladder stones, spay which of course would have been done regardless of the pyometra starting, treatment for the bladder infection, and lots of tlc and other issues to contend with, it was time to heal....Since then, this little one has shown herself to be quite playful.  She loves toys.  She is very athletic, super fast and very agile.  After some initial shyness and uncertainty when meeting new people, now she doesn't seem to know a stranger....she loves people and in particular, being on someone's lap.  She'll often be in one's lap before they even realize she's around.  Haha.  She is quite entertaining and is a joy to have around.  Miley is fostered with 4 other little dogs and does just fine with them.  She does occasionally want to guard her toy of the moment but has gotten a lot better with that.  She has even learned to play tug with a couple of the other pups after learning to play tug with her foster mom.  She has not been around larger dogs, though I would guess she might be ok with them if they are older and calmer and not rambunctious in-your-face types of dogs.  Miley is about 3 years old and weighs about 10 lbs.  She shows herself to be a bit submissive at times, though it's unknown if that's an inherent behavior with her or as we suspect might be the case, she was likely scolded and treated poorly, possibly because of issues with urination in the past which of course was not her fault.  She responds so well to praise, loves being told she's a good girl, and she IS a good girl.  Very well behaved.  She is an absolute lap dog and loves attention, though she also finds the couches and dog beds comfy too.  She sleeps on foster mom's bed at night.  She also loves to give kisses so if you don't care to have your face licked, or sometimes your hands, she's not the pup for you.There are certain considerations, however, when it comes to Miley, and they are very important ones.  Most notably, Miley is currently on special food (which she was placed on after her bladder stones were sent out and typed) and she will need to remain on this food for the near future, possibly longer term, all of which will be discussed.  It is a prescription food through the vet so it needs to be noted that food costs will be more expensive for her, though at least she's small. :) :)  She will also need to see a veterinarian in 3-4 months (once adopted it will need to be approximately every 4 months) to have her urine tested to make sure things are still on track for her.  It's possible that down the road she can be transitioned back to regular dog food though if that ends up being the case, it should be higher quality food.  It's sad that she went without medical care prior and that things got as bad as they did for her.  No looking back now.  Miley sure isn't and she's living well.   She is loving life and is now ready to become a part of a loving forever family.  Is it yours?? Our adoption process starts with our application. Once the application is approved, a member of Legacy will contact you to set up a home visit. The home visit usually last 1-1 1/2 hours and is to make sure our dog and any current dogs/cats are getting along, as well as both of us agreeing it's a fit. At this time the adoption fee is due, and begins the 2 week trial. We will check in during the 2 week trial. If it's not working, our dog is returned to the foster home and all except $100.00 {$75 if Senior} of the adoption fee is returned. At the end of the 2 week trial, you decide if you will finalize the adoption - if finalized, the Adoption Contract is signed and all medical records are turned over to you. If at any time you need to rehome the dog it contractually needs to be returned to Legacy Dog Rescue.ADOPTION FEE's:Puppies under 6 months:
