Our Available Pups...
our adoption donations...
donations are based on but not limited to: health, age, and sex of
the pup. Adoption donations range from $50.-$900. 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 $250-500 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.
If interested in adopting
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!
Ozzie is a sweet happy guy who
needs a new home due to his owner moving and not being able to take
him. Ozzie weighs 15 lbs (but really needs to loose some weight) He is
10 years old and in good health. He would do best with a family that is
home and can take him out often, as that is what he is use to. He
will use a pee pad when in the house but will also go outside when
taken, which he loves. Ozzie loves to go for walks and gets all excited
when you put his harness on. He rides well in the car. He gets
along fine with other dogs, but would be fine as an only. He has been
vetted including a much needed dental, he did loose some teeth but he
now has great breath for when he gives kisses!! If interested in
adopting Ozzie when he is ready please submit an application. Someone
will be very lucky to add this sweet guy to their home.
Meet Daisy! This sweet, beautiful
little female Yorkie is 7yo and weighs 6lbs and has the most expressive
eyes! She loves everyone and does well with other small dogs. She is
trained to use a pee pad or will go outside if taken out regularly. She
loves attention from people and likes to dance on her hind legs. She
travels well in her carseat or crate in a car but isn't a fan of being
crated at home. She likes to get up on the sofa to snuggle while you
watch TV. She has been fully vetted and is healthy. If interested in
adopting please submit an application She came in with Ava below and
would do well with her if looking for a bonded pair.
This is Ava...just 4yo and
about 4.5lbs of pure adorableness! She is a female pure bred
Yorkie with a gorgeous coat. She does well with other small dogs her
size and is starting to play with the playful pup sin her foster home.
But she also likes to be close and will snuggle on the sofa while your
read or watch TV. She is shy at first and attaches to one human quickly
but will bark at all others entering the home until she feels
safe. She'd prefer a quiet home with one person or a low key
couple. She does do well with Daisy since they came from same home. She
is trained to use a pee pad but will go outside if taken regularly. She
travels well in a carseat or crate. She is fully vetted and healthy. If
interested in adopting her or Daisy together please submit an
Mighty is a handsome and sweet
almost 13 year old male Yorkie whose owner passed away and is now in
need of a forever home. Mighty weighs around 5lbs but could add a
little extra weight on him. Mighty loves to snuggle with you on the
cough, gets along okay with other dogs in the house but would rather be
with people and rides well in the car. The only time we hear him bark
is if he wants you to pick him up. He uses pee pads and will go outside
if taken (he doesn’t ask to go out yet) but Mighty will need an
adjustment period in his new home as it took him awhile to get him into
a pretty good routine at his foster home. Overall he is in good health,
but does need eye drops twice a day for dry eye.
If you are looking to give a little guy a loving home and would like to
be considered for Mighty please fill out an application.
These two adorable Long Haired
Chihuahua puppies are looking for a home together! They are litter
mates born in June and have been together ever since. Tempi is the
female tri color black, white and tan and Crouton the male is a cream
sable. They both weigh about 2lbs each. They are healthy and completely
vetted including neuter/spay all vaccines and micro chipped. They are
pee pad trained and are friendly, playful, and not at all barkers.
Their breeder has retired and these two were part of her last litter.
Because of their size we will not be placing them in homes with
children or large dogs regardless of their behavior. We will only
separate them if home has another playful small dog. If interested in
these two please submit an application.
Benny came to us as an urgent
plea. Benny is a 5yo 10lbs male Yorkie
who was suffering with seizures and possible Liver shunt. His previous
owner could no longer provide for his care. He had not received any
diagnostic testing and had been placed on a very strong barbiturate! We
took him in and immediately headed to Tufts where we have started
diagnostic testing. As of right now it appears he does not have a liver
shunt. His Bile Acid test was normal. He is being weaned of the
Phenobarbital for seizures and over to Keppra which is milder on his
tiny system. He is also on a low protein diet to ease the work of his
liver. The liver does look enlarged right now so further testing will
be needed once we have him completely weaned. He is doing well with the
transition. He will need some further testing...If you can help with a
donation to his care we would appreciate it. Your name will be listed
as a friend to Benny.
11/26/2017: Benny is off the Phenobarbital completely and we are seeing
a different dog! He is much more responsive and we aren't seeing nearly
the neurological deficits we saw when he first arrived. We aren't
even sure the small episodes he's having are true seizures. His
personality is now showing through and this pup couldn't get any more
loving or attentive. Loves to follow you everywhere. Will snuggle for
hours. He is very quiet and is house trained! Our vet has asked us to
watch him for another couple weeks and then we will reevaluate.
12/14/17: Benny had an MRI and a spinal tap, both came back completely
normal! He is still having episodes so we need to do further testing.
We are looking to have a nuclear dye study done in the next week. This
test is very expensive aprox 1500., but should be able to let us
know what is going on with Benny.
12/28/17: Benny had a nuclear CT
scan that showed no shunt so that is not definitely ruled out. They did
fine some fine crystals in his urethra that we will be having
removed. We will also be revisiting the neurologist to get his final

Angel is a 9yo female Yorkie
who's in need of a new home. Her Mom is sick and can no longer care for
her. Angel weighs about 12lbs and is a loving girl who is use to having
someone home with her. She would do best to continue with that type of
situation as she can have some anxiety if left alone too long. She is
afraid of lightening/thunderstorms and fireworks. She is also use
to being an only and she'll pick and chose if she likes another dog or
not. A bigger dog may be fine. Fenced yard is preferred. If interested
in adopting Angel please submit an application.
