I had a rough time before I came to my APB foster home.  I was first adopted out of the Roscommon Humane Society and two weeks later I was surrendered to the Humane Society of Midland County.  I was adopted from there and after two weeks, I was returned again.  I was the toughest Yorkie ever, and I did not need to be loved by anyone.  If no one wanted me than I did not need anyone.  So, I would nip at people when they picked me up and I would do my business in the houses.  But because of that, no one wanted to take me to my forever home.

Before I knew it, I was being transferred to the Grand Rapids area, and someone was coming to take me to their home.  I didn’t need them either, I will stay tough.

On the very next day, my foster mom noticed that I was actually moving around on three legs.  Could that be the reason for my nipping and being so darn independent.  I was taken to the Animal Hospital and had some X-rays.  They showed that I did indeed, at some point, (at least a few years) had some trauma to my left back hip.  There were bone fragments that could be seen on the X-rays.  Surgery was scheduled and the bone fragments were removed, along with part of my leg bone.  The cost of my vet bill was almost $900.00.

I am healing wonderfully and I do not have any reason to nip anymore.  I have learned to trust and most of all love and be loved.  I have learned many tricks too.  I love to play tug of war and squeaky toys.  I don’t even do my business inside anymore.
