Joker is a 3 year old Yorkie-Silky mix. He weighs 9lbs. He has a beautiful non-shedding coat that is an option for those who have allergies or simply want a dog who doesn't shed. He will require regular grooming, which he had not had prior to coming into our rescue. But now, he's all groomed and ready to find the love of his life. 

Joker was an owner surrender to our rescue. His previous owners posted on a community board that they were going to give up their dogs to their shelter if they couldn't find a place for them. A volunteer contacted them and they were relinquished to us. Joker came in very shut down and shy. Around other confident dogs Joker began to blossom. He is very dog friendly. He previously and currently lived with other dogs. He goes to the dog park even though he never plays, he hangs out like a boss. He is a very quiet dog who doesn't create issues. He fit into his foster home seamlessly. 

Joker is going to be very shy when he meets new people. He won't come to someone for several days on his own accord. His foster mom left a leash on him and allowed him to drag it around so when she needed him to go outside or come inside, she just grabbed the leash and not him. He quickly picked up on following the dogs in his foster home. Where-ever they went, he then would go. For the first week he slept in a crate in the foster home. Then he graduated to being allowed to sleep in foster mom's room but he chose to sleep on the bed pets instead. By the middle of that week, he was trying to figure out how to climb the stairs to get onto Foster Mom's bed but wasn't sure enough of himself to do it. By week's end, he figured it out and was camping out there.

Joker is very sweet. He is timid with being touched. Clearly he hasn't been someone's beloved pet but he is learning to like being given treats (VERY treat motivated) and to being on Foster Mom's lap. But it took about a week before that happened. Time and patience are going to be the motto in his new home. He just needs that.

It's doubtful he's going to be a dog who wants to go out and meet tons of new people on a regular basis. Instead he needs a home that adjusts with him. He needs a home that reads his signals and if in a month or two he still isn't game for going out of the house and meeting new folks, then don't do it. 

Joker is only an option for folks who have owned dogs. Bonus points for folks who have had dealt with challenges of a shy dog. If there are children they need to be 12+ and have vast dog experience.
