Senior Shelter “Pup-kin” Named Yorkshire Is All Dressed Up And Hoping For Best Treat – A Home

Yorkshire, a 10-year-old pit bull mix, was found wandering the streets alone by police officers who brought her to Animal Care Centers (ACC) of NYC.

No one came to claim the friendly pup, so she was put up for adoption. She is the definition of a proper lady with the best manners and the most adorable gray face.

Her caretakers describe her as a “sweet and social older gal who is brewing with energy”. Senior dogs like her are often passed by for younger dogs, but she still loves to play with toys and has a lot of love to give.

Her story was shared on the shelter’s TikTok with Yorkshire sporting a pumpkin costume in hopes of giving her the best treat for Halloween – a loving home.

The ideal person for Yorkshire would be with an active person who enjoys long walks or hikes. She is one of the “pup-kins” in the shelter’s “pup-kin” patch looking for a forever home. While they wait, they are being spoiled with pumpkin cups.
