My heart has broken, my little yorkie Barney was put to sleep 8 weeks ago. I miss him so much he was a little ASBO but the most loving dog I haver ever had in my life. Barney touched my soul we have since bought a bichon frise as a companion for my s**tzu whose 2 and my 15 year old bichon. I dont know what has happened to me since having a yorkie its like my home is empty withput him. Though he was only little he filled the house with his character. I feelm like I have been seduced by the yorkie breed I just love them. But because my yorkie suffered so much in his life from nervousnes and anxiety, parthese disease whichhe had surgery for and halcabacter bacteria in his gut. He has cost thousands in vet bills but to see him suffer tore me apart and that has put me off ever getting another yorkie. That is why I got a bichon for my s**tzu but there is an emptiness that can not be filled. I lnow I cant replace him but I feel the yorkie is the breed for me. They are totally mental well he was but i loved him even his asbo behaviour not many people wouold have put up with him but i loved him to bits and he will always have a special place in my heart. He was only 5 years old when i had to have him put to sleep but we had exhausted every treatment. I dont know if I should offer a home for a yorkie or not as it may not get on with my other dogs maybe im just being selfish any advice on this would be much appreciated. Thank you for listening.

Oh my, I'm so sorry for your loss and my heart goes out to you! This is my first yorkie too, after the loss of my little mini-pin and my mom's chihuahua, both were 14 yrs in June & July. They both had to be put down one week apart. I so grieved and it was so sad. I knew the time was approaching and I couldn't be without a dog, so my hubby suggested I go ahead and get a yorkie, that I have wanted for so long. I am so glad I did to help me through it. There is no harder heartache than losing your best companion and friend.
I too and totally hung up on the breed now, it gets in your blood. I know I will not have anything else at this point, haha. Now my worry is does Zhoie need a playmate, (a little yorkie sibling), hehe.
If you and your family agree, I'm sure the is plenty of yorkies out there that needs a loving home. Are you thinking of fostering??? You know you pets, how do you think they would accept another dog into the home?

I am so very, very sorry for your loss. It is so hard to lose a furbaby and plenty of YT members understand exactly how you feel. Sending deep sympathy, but also a welcome to our community.

So sorry to hear of your loss of Barney. Many have Yorkies in multidog households. I know what you mean though, life just isn't the same without a Yorkie!
