Dr Richard Silver
Breed: Yorkshire Terrier
Current Location: Lewisville, TX
Adoption Date: April 18, 2020
Adopted by: Terry Mickla and Carol Porter
Dr. Richard Silver is going to live with our previous adopters Terry Mickla and Carol Porter from Lewisville, TX. Terry and Carol have adopted Miss Ellie the Yorkie, Little Rock the Yorkie, Nicole Kidman the Yorkie and Helen Hunt the Chihuahua from Dog Ranch Rescue. In addition, he will have four other rescue siblings. They saw Dr. Silver’s story and knew he would be the perfect addition to their family. He already has his first grooming appointment set for today. His new name will be Action Jackson since he is always in perpetual motion. We can’t wait to see this little man’s progress on Happy Tails. Happy life to all!About Dr Richard Silver:
#345 is a tiny little Yorkshire Terrier born on 11/17/2015. This little dog was supposed to be a female but surprise she has a penis so we will send him to foster at Karla’s house to keep him away from the girls.
Welcome to Dr Richard Silver who is a pediatric pulmonologist in Dallas.
Dr Richard Silver is a very shy boy. He doesn’t have any problems with other dogs, but then again, he doesn’t care to interact with them either. As far as us humans, he is not a fan. He will not let us get close to him and startles easily. He has learned to use the doggie door and loves to be outside trotting around the perimeter of the yard. When he is not outside or in his bed, he nervously paces the house. He is eating well and sleeps through the night in a crate in our bedroom, so that’s a plus. We are working diligently on potty training and if he doesn’t pick it up soon, a belly band it will be. I’m sure he will come out of his shell, it’s just going to take some patience and time.
Dr Silver making new advances every day. Karla sent me this update:
Yesterday, Neal and I decided to reinforce the chicken wire on our fence. We started at one end and worked our way down. Doc was outside with us and would lie down against the fence 5-10 feet from us. Each time we moved down a section, he would get up and move with us and lie back down. He’s still scared of us, but is definitely more comfortable around us outside. Makes me sad to think of his former life and what he dealt with, but this is a very good sign.
