In shelter Dog

Lawrenceville, GA, 30046
Pet name:
Yorkshire Terrier
Tricolor (Brown, Black, & White)
This is Posey and she is a special girl who needs a special home. Posey came to us by way of an overcrowded shelter in North Georgia. She is eight months old and she weighs eight pounds with a bit more growing to do. She is a Yorkie/Maltese mix and she was purchased from a breeder when she was a tiny pup. The family who bought her knew something was wrong with her from her start. She walks funny and she never seemed to be able to control her bowels or bladder. After owning her for eight months they decided they could no longer deal with her potty issues so they gave her up. We have had extensive testing done on Posey and we now know that the root of her problems is a spinal cord defect. This causes her to have an irregular gait and to be fully incontinent with her bowels and bladder. This condition is permanent and Posey will require diapers for the rest of her life. She will never be housetrained because she has no feeling in the muscles that control elimination. While Posey has a funny gait, she is fully mobile and can in fact both walk and run. She is a funny, feisty girl who has no sadness about her condition. Posey loves people and she gets along fine with other dogs. She will be a wonderful companion for someone who will love and treasure her โ€œas is.โ€ Please consider the ongoing expense of pet diapers before you apply to adopt Posey. They can easily be purchased at any pet store or online. Also to be noted is that she may be predisposed to urinary tract infections. Posey must be kept clean, meaning she cannot be left home alone without diaper changes for long periods of time. Her ideal home would have a stay at home parent. This little one canโ€™t help that she is slightly imperfect. We are hoping that someone out there will find her to be absolutely perfect and want to offer her a loving, forever home. 

Posey is fully vetted -- spayed, microchipped, heartworm negative, and current on vaccinations and deworming. The adoption fee is $250. We accept payment in the form of cash, CashApp and Zelle. You can apply to adopt by submitting an application at

AAHA is not affiliated or involved with any specific microchip registry and has no relationship, financial or otherwise, with this Participating Pet Recovery Service Registry ("Registry"). This Registry has given AAHA permission to search the Registry's database in order to assist pet owners in being reunited with their pets. AAHA does not maintain a database of microchips of its own. It only links to registries such as this one. The AAHA Universal Microchip Lookup Tool only searches the databases of companies that elect to participate in the program.
