Hello, I’m Jillian, a stunning adult female Yorkie who may weigh in at a whoppin’ 4 pounds, but I have a huge heart and I love my people with ALL of it!! I enjoy eating treats and will walk right under my fur sibs to be the first in line when mom starts handing them out! Hee, hee…the beauty to being tiny am I right!?! Hee, hee!! As much as I enjoy treats, I am a sweet, loveable little snuggle-bug who loves nothing more in the world than getting pets, tummy rubs, and cuddles from my people! Not only will I pat foster mom’s face if I’m feeling the need for some affection, but I will show her my tummy to let her know I wouldn’t be opposed to some tummy rubs. In fact, I often sleep on my back just in case someone should feel the need to give my tum-tums a rub! Ha, ha!

I am still a bit fearful of new things and loud noises like passing cars etc. but I’m getting better each day. I have not met any kids, cats, or larger dogs, but I’m good with my smaller foster fur sibs. I am still working on potty & leash training, and I bark when mom comes home or I’m in the kennel/crate so hopefully, my new family will be home with me. I even know commands like “come”, “outside”, and “go potty” so you can see I’m a smart little gal.

All I need now is the fur-ever home I so richly deserve with a patient, unconditionally loving fur-ever family that will NEVER give up on me! I sure hope that YOU will be my new family…I am already SO excited just thinking about all the wonderful memories we’ll make together! Love, Jillian

*Please note that some of our dogs are obtained from shelters, surrendered to our care, or released from breeders.  Each animal's bio is based on our experience of the animal within our care, an educated guess based on physical characteristics, temperament and information shared.  Each dog receives basic grooming when coming into rescue, but for some dogs they have not received grooming attention until recently and grooming may be required shortly after adoption.  This will be at the adopters expense, so we encourage you to research the breed and be prepared for grooming expenses .   Underdog cannot guarantee hypoallergenic or non shedding qualities of any dogs in our rescue.   Some of the animals come from situations where they are lacking experience in a home and confidence in humans. In turn, they require another companion dog and/or a fenced in yard in th eir forever home in order for them to feel safe. If you are interested in a    particular dog whose bio states those needs and do not currently have them, please understand that your home might not be the right fit.  Please use the filter on our Adoptable Dogs page to find the perfect match for your home.
