Yorkshire Terrier Yorkie | Washington, NJ





Good in Home With

Others DogsChildren


  Bastille is a very young 7 month old Yorkie/Schnauzer mix pup that is only 11 pounds and destined to be the love of your life.   When he is fully grown he should be a little under 20 pounds and just the right size for all sorts of fun adventures to do together in life.  He is very even tempered and a sweet little guy that really does well with other dogs.  We have not tried him with cats but since he is such a young pup we are sure he could accept and befriend them for life.  He has the perfect demeanor to be great with everyone and every creature he meets.  When he first came to the rescue foster home,  he didn't know what a leash was and we made him learn on a daily basis.  He is getting better at it with each session.  He would not do good in an apartment as he really doesn't like to be crated and will cry to get out.  He will learn the crate but in the meantime an apartment dweller might have some angry and complaining neighbors. Bastille loves to snuggle, give kisses and be your best friend.  He needs a fenced area to run in because he is not a fulltime couch potato but an active little guy that loves to get his zoomies out.  He loves to play with other dogs and we are looking for that kind of opportunity as well.  Whomever adopts him in going to have lots of fun with him.  If you work from home we are totally all for that.  We would like the adopters to be home most of the time to get that one on one time.He is still a puppy so not completely house trained but is crate trained. Lots of potential for this boy.   We want a family with children over 7 years of age and who know how to be gentle with a small dog.  So much potential with this boy to bring joy and love your way.  Please contact Critter Cavalry Rescue at [email protected] if you are interested.   PLEASE NOTE:  Our dogs are transported from Tennessee to meeting places in the states where we have posted.  Further information about us is given on our Adopt-A-Pet site.  The adoption fees vary and will be provided as well as noted on the application you receive.  Contact us at 615-661-5333 or [email protected]
