Verena Yorkie Poo Looking for Loving Forever Home-Adopted

Verena is an adorable 8-year-old yorkie poo with soft dark eyes and crazy ears.  She arrived into BCFS’ foster care program on a cold snowy evening in January, rescued from a puppy mill.

Yes, pictured above is the same dog. The ungroomed picture was taken December 31, 2015 on intake prior to her groom and bath. This is Verena post-groom.


It didn’t take Verena long to warm up to her newfound freedom, and begin coming out of her shell.

Foster Mom Update

IMG_0085expcropsharpresizedIt’s nice to be carried!

After nearly three weeks in the care of her foster mom, Barb says she’s still very shy and skittish but gradually learning to trust. Verena follows Barb around and wants to be with her all the time.

Verena is now enjoying the comforts of home. Up on the bed …


And tucked into her own bed …


Verena is a good eater and loves her liver cookies. She’s very loving and wants to be petted all the time.

She is not trained but could be with time. She can do stairs, but very slowly.  Verena gets along with Barb’s cat and small dogs though she doesn’t like big dogs.

Barb says Verena’s getting more trusting and coming out of her room more often. When she’s outside she runs around more, enjoying her freedom.  She’s not cowed as much as when she was first fostered ~ it’s one day at a time for rescued puppy mill dogs learning how to be dogs. With love and patience, Verena will learn to trust.

Verena most likes to be petted when Barb pets her other dogs, and would do well with another small dog for a friend.

Verena is a wee girl, only 8 pounds, and too fragile for a home with small children.  She’s healthy, and has been spayed, had a dental and is up to date on shots.

Verena’s sad puppy mill days are over, and she’s looking for a loving family to cherish her. Could that be you?

If so, please download and complete an adoption application and then email it to our Adoptions Coordinator Silvana at

Thank you for reading Verena’s story and considering adopting her!

  2. Very interested in this sweetheart __ we have a little shitzu (9)
    Lost our little one Lily (a rescue min_pin) about 14 months ago and we are thinking now of another rescue as long as the two like each other. We are a senior couple–live in our own home with a closed in back yard.
