Our Available Pups...
A note about
our adoption donations...
donations are based on but not limited to: health, age, and sex of
the pup. Adoption donations range from $50.-$800. You may ask "Why
would you charge an adoption fee? Why not just place in a good home?"
answer is: because we rely heavily on these adoption fees in order to
be able to take in ALL Yorkies in need. A young, healthy dog may cost
us $200-400 in vet care, and have many homes interested
in adopting him/her. An older or sick yorkie, or one with
health issues can easily cost $500-1500+ in veterinary expenses.
He/she may require months of foster care for rehabilitation or
expensive surgery; yet we can only ask a minimal adoption fee. Often
times these are also the same dogs that don't receive as many
inquires for adopting. Please keep in mind that the adoption donations of
younger, healthy dogs help defray the higher costs of the
veterinary care of older, injured or sick dogs. We hope
that people looking to adopt through Yorkies Inc. are willing
to give an opportunity for a better life to ALL of our dogs by supporting
them through adoption fees. We are a non-profit organization. Without these adoption
donations we would not have the funding to take in all yorkies in need.
Yorkies Inc. completely vets every dog
we take in. All dogs are groomed given a complete exam
and brought up to date on all vaccines. They are also given a
dental cleanings, spayed/neutered, heartworm tested and any
medical needs and needed surgeries are met before placement.
are only interested in loving responsible homes that are willing to
commit to the care and up keep of the pup for a lifetime. If you are
not willing to pay the adoption donation now you are likely not to pay
for quality food or to see to the pups health care needs in the future.
Remember we are looking for our pups to become family members and
cherished companions not a convenient impulse purchase. If you
are only looking into "rescue" as a way to save money or "don't want to
pay breeder prices" please check your local shelters. They are able to
adopt out much cheaper as they are often state and/or federally funded
and have vets on staff.

with Yorkies Inc please submit an adoption application. We always go to
applications already on file when dogs become available. Thank you so
much for considering adoption!
Daniel is an adorable 12 week
old male puppy who weighs 3.5lbs. Daniel was surrendered by his owner
due to him limping and holding up his back left leg. Daniel went to
Tufts and Daniel will be needing two surgeries on his back leg as he
has both a hip and knee problem. He will be having FHO hip surgery soon
which should help relieve the discomfort he is in and make his hip as
good as new, but will need to wait till he is bigger for knee surgery.
Please consider making a donation to Daniel's veterinary care as it
will be quite costly. All friends of Daniel will be listed. Thank you.
UPDATE: 3/27/14: Daniel had his surgery yesterday and did
well. The surgery was pretty extensive...his leg bone was
rotated 90% and his patella (knee) was completely off. Because
of this his leg was quite constricted. Tissue had to be cut
and released at both the hip and the knee area. Bone was cut a
bit at the knee to allow Dr Kochin to re-align everything.
Wires and pins were used to secure everything in the newly
restructured position. This should allow for better range of
motion and a functioning leg. Recovery and time will tell.
Thank you all for the positive thoughts, prayers, well wishes
and donations!! Please keep them coming as he recovers.
Surgery costs us just under 3000.00

Belle & Bailey
Bella and Bailey are looking for a new home. Their owner had a
stroke and is no longer able to care for them. They have been
together since they were puppies and will only be adopted out
as a pair. Bella is 4.5 yrs old and weighs 8 lbs and
Bailey is 4.5 years old and weighs 7 lbs. While they are not
litter mates they are from the same breeder and have always
lived together. They love to cuddle on your lap, and snuggle
up at night. You will typically find them following you around
waiting for some love. They use pee pads, but will also go
outside. They love daily walks. A fenced in yard with no holes
is recommended as they will run away for fun if given a
chance! A home with no cats is a must as Bailey thinks it is a
game to chase them. They have not been raised with children so
we are looking for an adult only home. They are really sweet
dogs, and will make someone happy. Bella is the lighter one,

Lucy is a 12 year old female Shih Tzu mix who weighs 13 lbs. Lucy is a
sweet little girl who is looking for a loving forever home.
While we do not have any past history on Lucy it is obvious
she has had a rough life. A few of her teeth are broken
we suspect from chewing on a metal crate and she at one time
had something embedded around her back which left a cut that
is healing nicely. With all this Lucy still loves people and
never stops wagging her tail while you pat her. She has some
vision and hearing loss but that does not stop her from loving
life and wanting to be part of the group. She enjoys being on
the couch with you getting patted and exploring a fenced in
yard. She is house trained as long as you take her out a few
times a day or she will use a pee pad. Lucy went to the vets
and they feel she is overall in very good health, blood work
was perfect. She is going on an antibiotic for her eyes and
artificial tears a couple times a day and will go back in for
a recheck in a couple weeks. She is updated on vaccines, but
will need a dental to remove the broken teeth before she is
ready for her new home. If you have any questions about Lucy
please write to
If interested in being Lucy's new loving forever home please
fill out an application.
Sandy is a very pretty 17 month old female Yorkie who weighs
around 5 lbs. Her owner could no longer care for her, her
sister Mandy or their father Brody so they are now looking for
new homes. Sandy is very outgoing and playful. She is always
trying to get the other dogs in the house to play with her.
She would love her sister or father to be adopted with her or
a home with another small playful dog. Sandy would like her
new person to be home more than not as she loves being around
people. She will need some work with walking on a leash but
expect her to catch on quickly. She does well using a pee pad
and will go outside if taken out in a fenced in yard. If you
have any questions please email
email@example.com or if
interested in being considered to adopt please fill out an
application. Thank you
Mandy is a beautiful 17
month old female Yorkie who weighs around 5 lbs . She is an
owner surrender who is now looking for a new loving forever
home. Mandy is very sweet and loving, but needs time to warm
up as she can be shy when first meeting someone. Once
she knows you, she loves giving the sweetest kisses, cuddling
and also playing and running around like a silly little girl.
Mandy came in with her sister Sandy and her father Brody.
Mandy would love to be adopted with one of them as she often
looks to them for reassurance and as a playmate, but does not
have to be. She would also do best with someone home more than
not. She will need work with leash walking but does enjoy
exploring the fenced in back yard. She is house trained with a
pee pad but will need reinforcement in her new home. If you
have any questions please write to
If interested in adopting please fill out an application.

Meet Lola & Livy two 5yo female Yorkies that are litters
mates and recently retired by the breeder, These two 6lb darling girls
have always been together and do very well as a pair...we hate to break
them up now! We find them snuggling in a bed and romping and exploring
together often. These two girls are sweet and easy pups. They will need
a bit of reinforcement on house training if not contained to an area.

heartworm and Lyme tested and all vaccines. Lola and Livy are ready for
their new home. If interested in adopting please submit an adoption

Whoopi is an adorable female Yorkie who weighs almost 8 lbs and will be
turning 7 in Sept. She has a bubbly personality and loves to give
kisses. Whoopi is looking for a new family due to unforeseen changes
that caused her current family to no longer have the time for Whoopi
that she deserved. Due to this we are looking for a home where her new
family will be home to give her the love and attention she deserves and
loves. She is very friendly and loves being on the couch with you and
sleeping in your bed at night. She likes other small dogs, but
would be fine as an only. She will need some reinforcement with house
training. She was house trained but that took a back seat, however so
far she is doing pretty well in her foster home when taken out on a
regular basis. She has been fully vetted and is ready for her new home.
If interested please fill out an application. If you have any questions
please write to firstname.lastname@example.org
Timi is an adorable 6 month old male full bred Yorkie who
weighs about 3lbs. He was surrendered to us from his breeder
because he was small and not acting right,...showing
possible signs of Liver shunt. We took him in and immediately
put him on a low protein diet and head a Bile Acids test done.
The results seemed off but not conclusive for Liver shunt so
we will be retesting him in the next couple weeks. Since with
us he has shown now signs what so ever and has actually gained
some weight and is enjoying playing with the other puppies. We
are continuing his diet until we can retest him. If you are
interested in Timi when he is ready please submit an adoption
application. Any questions please email

was going to be a show dog but she is too small and very shy when first
meeting someone. TT loves to play with other small dogs her size and
therefore we want her new home to have another small dog as a playmate.
Once comfortable TT has a very outgoing personality loving to give tons
of big kisses, playing with toys and other dogs, running around and
also cuddling on the couch when she is done. TT is pretty well pee pad
trained and will go outside if taken however she will most likely need
some reinforcement in her new home. TT loves running in a fenced yard
and will need some work walking on a leash. TT loves to ride in the car
and readily jumps in a dog bag with her foster siblings to go. If
you would like to be considered for TT please submit an application. Any questions please write to
Brody is a handsome 2.5 year old male Yorkie who weighs 5 lbs.
Due to needing to move and a new job Brody's previous owner is
no longer able to give Brody the life he deserves so she has
asked Yorkies Inc to help find him and his daughters new
forever homes. Brody is a great little dog who loves to play
with other dogs, cuddle on the couch and give gentle kisses.
Brody has been fully vetted and while there we had an x-ray
taken of his front right leg because he holds it up at times.
The x-ray showed an old break in his leg that did not heal
correctly. While this does not stop him from running, playing
and jumping up on the couch we will be taking him to an
orthopedic specialist to see if anything can be done at this
late date. Brody is doing well using a pee pad but will need
reinforcement in his new home. He also will need work walking
on a leash. We would like Brody to either be adopted with one
of his daughters or into a home with another small dog as he
enjoys playing If you have any questions about Brody please

Georgie is a handsome sweet male Yorkie who is around 6 years
old and weighs around 5lbs. Georgie was found as a stray and
his owners never came to claim him. Due to how thin he was and
the condition of his hair he had to have been lost for awhile,
but now he has gained weight and his coat is looking great. He
is a funny little guy with quite a personality. He gets along
well with other dogs, but he really loves being around people.
He gives the sweetest kisses and is always ready for a belly
rub! He walks well on a leash and loves going out in the car.
When he sees his harness and leash his tail never stops
wagging. Georgie enjoys playing toys with my niece, and would
enjoy children visiting but due to his small size we wont be
placing him in a home with small children. He loves being with
people and is very happy being near by, even more if he is on
your lap. If you have any questions about Georgie you can

This is Sweetpea a 6yo aprox 12lb
spayed female Yorkie. Sweetpea is well trained and loving. Her person
has had life changes that means no time for Sweetpea. She has been well
cared for and is fully vetted and healthy. She is trained to use a pee
pad but also enjoys leash walks. Sweetpea has passed her Good
Citizenship tests and is well behaved. She loves children and would do
great in a home with kids just not very young ones as she was not
raised with them. Kids 6 or older who have been raised with dogs would
be fine. She would love a fenced yard to explore, but is basically
house dog. She does fine with other dogs and has lived with her
littermate Bruiser for part of her life. She could be placed with him
or my herself or with another dog. If interested in adopting Sweetpea

We just took in this little 12
week old female Yorkie pup
with a serious condition known as "megacolon" She is unable to
eliminate waste on her own right now. "Jenna" was admitted for testing
and to see if they can determine what is going on and try to get her
little body to start working properly. Please keep her in your prayers
and consider becoming a "Friend to Jenna" to help with her expenses. We
will update her as soon as we have more information. Thank you
Update 1/12/14: Jenna is home on medical management hoping that this
will either allow her colon to start working properly and eventually
wean her off the meds OR that if this is a genetic problem that this
protocol will work and then she can remain on it for life. It's really
still to soon to know anything but we are crossing our fingers and
praying. If this does not work we will have to look at surgery to
remove part of her colon. To date her expenses are $1,521.00.
3/15/15: Jenna is now 5 months old and she has gone through a
few diets, meds and tests to get to where we are today. She is
doing very well and we seem to finally have her colon problems
behind us. We will be scheduling her spay and finish up with
her vaccines in the next few weeks at and while under
anesthesia we will get another xray or ultrasound down to
confirm she has healed. We will be looking for a home for her
with another small dog to play with and no small children.

Shunt is a condition that we see far too often in Yorkies and
Maltese pups. Because of this we felt we should give you all more
background on this dreadful condition that is become more prevalent in
our beloved breeds. Below is a link to some success stories including
Bella who came into Yorkies Inc in early February 2006. She is
now known as "Paisley" Please take the time to read her story and that
of the other Liver Shunt Survivors. Through this link you can also find
other links for more info on Liver Shunt's and what it means to the pup
and the owner. We'd like to thank a good friend Stephen Glass for
featuring Paisley and getting the word out about Liver
the life of one dog may not change the world, but the world will surely
change for that one dog"
