Yorkshire Terrier/Prague Ratter
7 years old
oh man, I just read through this website and there are a few other dogs like me
who have lost their beloved owners due to illness and old age. You know, I think
my mom probably feels just as badly about leaving me behind as I do about losing
her BUTÖ..BUTÖ.. Iím going to move on and hope that someone gives me my
second loving home. I have so much zest for living left in me. I love to go for
walks and if you dangle that leash in front of me, youíll see just how excited
I can get for walks. Then there are the car rides. My favorite car ride is to
the pet store to find more toys. Want to see me obey commands? Well, just try
saying ďsitĒ and see how fast my hindquarters hit the ground. Someone
tattled that I know the command rollover but I havenít yet proved that. Iím
saving it for my special next forever human. I love to be brushed and that just
keeps me looking so great in between groomings. What more could anyone ask for
in a four legged canine friend?
my last home I was an only childÖI mean, only dog. Iíve learned in the
foster home that other dogs being around isnít all that bad if theyíre nice
ones. If I get left alone a lot, which I hope wonít be the case, it might be
nice to have a friendly doggy companion but do me a favor and let us meet each
other first before you sign the adoption papers. I really donít want to learn
to love you and then find out the other dog is jealous and starts to dislike me.
Iíd have to put on my pouty face if that happened.
for the final piece of information. Drum rollÖÖÖ..I got a glowing report
from the vetís office!!! Ta-Dahhhh!!!! Iím ready to go. The next step is up
to you to set up the meet and greet and come prepared to take me home to share
your home and more important to win over your heart. Donít forget the toys!!!!
Please! *Doggy Wink*

Darby had a rough start in life but his fortune became much brighter once he
made his way into rescue! He and several other dogs had been living out in
a filthy shed and the man in charge of their care was negligent and abusive to
them in so many ways. Along with being dangerously under weight, it was
found his blood work was not spot on before we performed his neuter. Upon
these findings we did all of the diagnostics/tests necessary and treated him for
an infection until his values returned to normal. Darby has gained the
weight were he should be and is now healthy are ready to go out into his new
home. He is a very shy guy and would benefit from having another dog
of similar size in his new life to help him continue to build self confidence.
Taking him to class for socializing and exposure may also be helpful to help him
in his new life. He does prefer his foster mom and bonded very quickly to
her and he will need a little more time and patience to help him learn to trust
men again. That will come with positive experiences we would hope.
It was not his fault what happened to him.
that has met Darby comments on how super sweet he is considering his past
background. He's just still a bit unsure of himself. Currently he is
learning to walk on a leash so a fenced yard would be best for him at this time.
His beautiful spirit becomes quite evident as he zooms around the yard at
warp speed and his old life for the moment is forgotten. This is his
new world!!! He is truly enjoying his new freedom and fortunate jail
break from that horrible prison he was living in. We are so proud of
the progress he has made during his stay in foster care.
is a love and just needs to learn to trust again and learn about the world
around him. He gets along great with dogs similar in size as well.
Once he bonds with his new owner he will be a snuggle bug for life!
Need a lap ornament? This just might be your little man if you are
willing to have a little patience with him while he learns the world is a much
better place than where he was!

out there!!!! Is anyone reading the write ups? Yes??? Oh good, so I can
share that Iím looking for a wonderful new life with a very special person or
two and youíll take time to see if youíre interested in me?
see how many questions you can answer ďyesĒ to and weíll go from
you understand how it is to love food so much that you have to really exercise
will power to maintain good health? Can you help me do that?
you happen to go for walks and would you be willing to take me and let me
explore and sniff around? Iíd do the same for you, not that youíd want to
sniff around. *wink*
you like to see me ďdanceĒ for cookies? Yes? Oh, I forgot, food
control. Well, we can handle that, right?
you have a cat in residence? Hmmmmm - Iíve tried to play with cats but most of
them just run and then I can eat their food. How is it I keep returning to the
subject of food? *burp*
you like me to bark just enough to alert you to prowlers or strangers and then I
will be quiet? Done deal!
you happen to have an RV so we could go south for the winter or at least do some
traveling together? I can already see myself looking out the windows as we
travel along. But if you donít have an RV, car rides would be just fine.
much for the questions. Now the facts, plain and simple. I like belly rubs, raw
bones and raw vegetables. Bet you never thought youíd hear that from a dog! I
like sleeping on the bed with my human. While Iíve gotten along with the
foster dogs that come and go in this foster house, Iím really saying my doggy
prayers that I might be able to be an only dog for the rest of my life. Probably
my only negative is I get nervous when people reach for my head. Itís a thing
in my past but at the same time most dog trainers teach humans that thereís a
better way to reach for a dog to pet them than going straight for the head so I
think Iím normal. Yup, Iím more normal than most dogs. One last thing, My
foster mom has worked hard to find the perfect diet for me to protect me from
bladder stones. That is so awesome of her because I feel GREAT! Iím good to go
for another decade. Care to join me?

I will never know the loneliness I hear in the barks of the other dogs 'out
I can sleep soundly, assured that when I wake my world will not have changed.
I will never know hunger, or the fear of not knowing if I'll eat.

There will be an effort to communicate with me on my level.
I will be talked to and, even if I don't understand,
I can enjoy the warmth of the words.
I will be given a name so that I may know who I am among many.
My name will be used in joy, and I will love the sound of it!

I will be loved because I am who I am, not someone's idea of who I should

I will be taught all the things I need to know to be loved by all.
If I do not learn my lessons well, they will look to my teacher for blame.
