About Poppa

Age: Senior
Sex: Male

Poppa is fostered in Austin, Texas through United Yorkie Rescue Poppa is estimated to be 12 yr. old is 6 lbs. Poppa came into rescue in September, as a rescue from a shelter. Poppa has the normal conditions that come with an aging Yorkie. He is 12+years but he looks like a puppy. Amazingly his blood work shows he only has a slight liver condition which they believe is caused by dental infection. He has arthritis in his back legs as well as some cataracts (but has peripheral vision) He can see up close and turns his head sideways so he can focus from the sides of his eyes. Deafness is about 95% but can hear really loud noises. Dental work is scheduled immediately. He sleeps a lot but perks up when he smells nice warm chicken broth, he's eating 3 times a day, loves to go outside, and gets along with the other pets. Poppa would be a great companion for a home with NO YOUNG CHILDREN, as he's almost blind and is a small boy. Because of his age and normal aging conditions he would best be with a doting family that can give him the care he deserves. Not only does he deserve to be the king of his castle, he will need quality food and health care. To complete an application for Poppa, go to
