5-6 year old male yorkie was owned by elderly couple. Wife died, husband now in hospice. Animal abused. Matted hair, kept in a carry on cage for 8 months and fed nothing but chitos. He weighs 15 pounds, not because he is large, but because he is obese. The Partners for Pets in Marion, Fla called and wanted to know if we knew of anyone who could help. The yorkie is aggressive towards other small dogs. He needs to be placed in a fmaily without other pets. He was caged all the time, let out to go pee and put back in the cage. He is terrified and it took staff 4 hours to cut off all the matted hair. They do not know what to do with him. Neither do we. Our shelter in Boca can take him and place him in a foster home to work on his issues and get him adopted out.
