Why pay for a pet store dog when you can save a life by adopting your next furry friend?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

This little fella is Leo 🦁 a purebred, perfect 3 month old teacup Yorkie boy who was purchased at a pet store in early May, only to be moved from home to home – First because the couple who purchased him wasn’t allowed to have pets in their complex, then because the lady who took him off their hands didn’t have time or energy for a puppy. Last week Leo ended up being surrendered to our rescue. This poor little guy was left to wonder what he had done wrong.

Over the weekend Leo went into a foster to adopt home where it didn’t take long for his new parents to fall in love with his irresistible face. He is now learning commands, potty training and overall discipline.

We can’t say this enough – if someone you know is looking to get a purebred dog encourage them to try Petfinder.com or their local animal shelter and rescues first.

So many incredible purebred dogs get surrendered every day, at no fault of their own. There are many potential pet owners out there that don’t know the benefits and ins and outs of rescuing. It’s up to all of us to spread the word, to educate, and to save more lives!

I’m happy I found my forever family!
