Poodle - Yorkshire Terrier Yorkie - Adult - Male
Adoptable Small Spayed/NeuteredUp-to-date with routine shotshousetrainedPrefers No Kids

If you’re looking for a very loyal lap dog – Toby just might be your (little) man!

Toby is a 3 year old 8 pound Yorkie Poo. He loves to lay in his person’s lap and really just wants to be with that person. He walks wonderfully on a leash and loves other dogs – gets along great with his foster siblings!

He is housetrained if let outside on a regular schedule. Toby does NOT like the crate at all and will definitely let you know that!

He’ll do best in a quieter environment – kids should be older than 8 years old as he isn’t really used to the activity levels of young children.

Toby is heartworm positive – but don’t let that stop you from adopting this sweet guy! He is being treated with what is called the slow-kill method. It is a 30 day antibiotic regimen followed by a specific heartworm prevention every two weeks. It is less invasive and less costly than the injection method which can be quite painful and requires 30 days of crating between two injections to kill the heartworms. The NC State Vet School recommends this as an alternative to the traditional heartworm treatment.

Toby has been neutered and is up to date with his vaccinations. Because he is heartworm postive, we are not assessing our regular adoption fee of $250. Instead – there is no adoption fee at all, and we will provide all medicines and a year’s supply of heartworm preventative. In return, we ask for a tax deductible donation of your choosing.
