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!
Jewels is a little 4yo female
silver Yorkie who came to us with a severe bladder stone and was
urinating blood. She was started on antibiotics. Be cause of the type
of stone it was highly suspected that she may also had a Liver
shunt and would need further testing and ultimately treatment/surgery.
We took her in to get Bile Acids test. This test was positive and it's
highly likely she does have a shunt. She has an appointment of Friday
for an ultrasound to confirm and locate the shunt she will then go into
surgery. She is on a low protein diet and medication to prepare her for
the surgery. She is doing very well and is a sweet girl but so very
thin...another tell tale symptom of a Liver shunt pup. She loves her
food and we're fairly certain she'll gain some weight now that the food
agrees with her. Surgery though is the only cure and will be expensive.
Please consider donating to Jewels care. All "Friends" of Jewel will be
posted. And please keep her in your thoughts. Thank you
UPDATE 7/14/18: Jewels had an ultrasound that revealed a large extra
hepatic shunt. She had surgery yesterday to repair it and remove the
large stone and she is doing well! Prayers and positive thoughts are
working! Thank you to all who have sent wonderful donations!
Surgery and vetting will be aprox $3800. Please consider making a

JJ is a tiny 4lb female Yorkie
with a lot of personality. She is 6 years old and loves being the
center of attention and if she isn't the center she will let you know!
!JJ loves being held up high and close to you, sleeping on the couch
and cuddling in bed. She wants to be wherever you are. She loves to go
for walks and being in the car. While she hasn't shown any interest in
playing with toys or the other dogs in the house she still has a spunky
personality. She would do best with someone home that would love a
companion and use to the Yorkie personality. She can be skittish and
nervous in new situations and doesn't like quick movements especially
when going to pick her up and has snapped when this happens, but she
loves to be held and doted on. JJ still needs to go to the vets and
then she will be ready for her new home. If you would like to be
considered for JJ please submit an application. Thank you!
Skeeter is a 5.5yo male yorkie
who weighs about 8lbs. He is healthy, up to date on vaccines, neutered,
micro chipped and heartworm and Lyme negative. He came to us after
being hit by a car and needed to have an FHO surgery so that he was
able to walk again. He has completely recovered and he can walk, run,
jump and play normally. He had found a wonderful new home, but
unfortunately, the other male dog in that home decided he did not want
to share his family with Skeeter. After trying everything his new
family was heartbroken to have to surrender Skeeter back to us. Skeeter
would love a fenced yard and another playful dog or two his size to
play with. He'd do best in a home with someone around often. He loves
car rides and toys and snuggling on the couch. And he does well with
leashed walks. He will go outside if taken out frequently or will use a
pee pad. He's got personality plus and not a mean bone in his body. If
interested in adopting Skeeter please submit an application.
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 pups in 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 would do best in a home with another small dog. She does
very 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 with 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 dogs larger then 8lbs regardless of their behavior. We will
separate them if find two homes that each has another playful small
dog. If interested in
these two please submit an application.
UPDATE 6/25/18: These two just turned a year old and are still looking
for the perfect home together. At this point they are very bonded and
do so well together. They are full grown at about 3.5lbs each. Please
read their bio carefully and if interested and feel you are a
good fit please submit an application.

Benny came to us as an urgent
plea. Benny is a 5yo 8lbs 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
Looking for a "Forever Foster"
Update 6/25/18: Though we
have done every test we could to determine the cause of Benny's
seizures we have not been able to get an answer. Benny continues to do
well on the Kepra but still has a seizure or two each week. He is also
on a special kibble to keep him free of crystals in his urine. Benny is
a sweet low key dog who acts much older then his 5.5years. He doesn't
really interact with other dogs or even people much, except to get
petted or lay close by. Because of Benny's limitations and
special needs we have decided to make him a "Forever Foster". This
means we are looking for a permanent foster home for him where he can
be loved and get the attention he deserves but Yorkies Inc will
continue to pay for his meds, special diet kibble and vetting expenses.
Foster home would provide the love! Benny is a very quite dog and
doesn't bark at all! He loves his bed and being close and getting
patted. We are looking for a special home with a single person or
couple that is home more. Experience with small dogs, or seizures
and/or special needs would be optimal. If you think you'd like to be a
Forever Foster for Benny please submit an adoption application. Any
questions please email Cathie@yorkiesinc.com

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.
