Dogs for Adoption: Remi, Romi, Route

Ed’s note: Remi, Romi, and Route found new homes!

These three Yorkshire Terriers came from a breeder and were used as breeding dogs, so they look older than they really are. They came to ARK when the breeder fell ill and was unable to take care of them. Unfortunately, breeders do not always know what they are doing and the dogs that they produce sometimes have problems.

Remi is six years old. Her ears get dirty but if someone tries to clean them, she gets very stressed. Of the five dogs who were rescued from this breeder, Remi was the biggest “frady cat”, but she is slowing becoming more brave. With her thin body and long legs, she kind of resembles ET — her nickname at the shelter — but she is a good dog who doesn’t bark unnecessarily.


Romi is seven years old. She had a mammary tumour that was removed when she was spayed.


Six-year old Route has a right ear that flops over but it doesn’t affect her at all.


It would be wonderful if these dogs could find families that could take care of them during their golden years. None of them have been toilet trained, so their new owners will have to have the patience to teach them.
