To be a part of an animal's journey to a better life; to love and provide safety to their forever home, is something truly special and what animal rescue is all about.  It's what we strive for.

Hi! It's me, Mario!! I am an approximately 3 year old, male, neutered Yorkie. I came in with my friend Luigi, although we get along, we are not bonded and can be adopted separately. I lost my right eye before coming to rescue, but the vet thinks it was probably due to a condition called Keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS), also know as "dry eye", since I have the condition in my left eye. This condition requires a prescription eye drop twice daily, but since being started on these special drops, I have been doing fantastic. I can still see some out of my left eye, but my vision is decreased. I get around well, I just may need some time to adjust to my new home. I probably wouldn't do well with small children due to my small size and decreased vision, so need a home without. I am more reserved and I get nervous easily, so would do well with an experienced Yorkie owner, someone who enjoys cuddles on the couch and watching lots of movies.

I am really good about using potty pads and going outside sometimes, but some days it's just too cold for me! I am also use to a crate and don't mind sleeping in it while my family is away.

Could you be my forever person?
