Cullen the Yorkie

Cullen is a 3 year old Yorkie who is part of our Yorkies Times family.

Here is his story told by his mom, Michelle Holloway.

“I got Cullen when he was 7 weeks old. After about 4 days, he became really lethargic so I took him on to the vet. He wasn’t quite ready for shots yet, but since he was seemingly sick I took him. He had stage 4 hookworms, the breeder obviously did not deworm any of the puppies. Cullen had to be given fluids, vitamin B12 shots, vitamin K shots, daily. We had to feed him through a syringe and also give him honey to keep his sugar levels up. We didn’t think he was going to make it. He really needed a blood transfusion which are very expensive and I couldn’t afford. My vet worked so hard on saving his life and after a few weeks he started improving. He made it through some really rough times and is a wonderful, very playful and spirited yorkie today.”

Cullen’s life didn’t start out so great but he’s a fighter!


It is very sad that some breeders don’t take pride in what they do and the animals are the ones who pay in the end.
