London, a 3-year-old spayed Yorkshire terrier, is a sweet, wiggly lap dog who was relinquished due to time constraints. She is not yet housebroken. Toy breeds can be more difficult to housebreak than larger breeds, so London will need proper confinement and a patient owner using positive reinforcement to help her. London has not lived with kids, and Yorkies are not usually suitable for young, boisterous children as they can be fragile and can be frightened easily (bring any children to meet London). She will do best in a home where the humans will give her positive, consistent feedback and help her understand what is expected of her. Yorkies don’t usually require a lot of exercise, so they can be good for smaller living spaces, but they can be noisy if untrained. They are smart and enjoy learning, walks in safe spaces and affection. London has lived with another dog previously, but seeing as she’s small, she would probably prefer calmer dogs. If you have dogs currently, bring them to meet her. She will need daily walks and brushing, and frequent grooming by a professional. London is up-to-date on her vaccinations (except for rabies, which she will need soon) and has been microchipped and dewormed. She will be available at 2 p.m. today at the Atlanta Humane Society, 981 Howell Mill Road N.W. Sealed bids will be accepted starting at 10 a.m. if more than one party is interested. Please note that the highest bidder must meet adoption qualifications. Look at all our available pets at www.atlantahumane.org.
