This beautiful little lady with a calm personality is a 2-year-old Yorkie mix who just wants to fit in. She can be a bit anxious and startles easily, but she loves napping on the couch and being near her human. She would do well in a home with mature children or adults only, where she does not spend much time alone.

Please visit our website at to learn more about these and other available puppies and kitties.
