Our Available Pups...

A note about our adoption donations...

*Adoption 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?" The 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.  We 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!



Meet Eddy our newest foster with Yorkies Inc. We received a plea from a veterinary hospital in NH asking if we could take Eddy into Yorkies Inc. Eddy is a 6 month old 2.1lb male Chorkie (Chi/Yorkie mix). Little Eddy has had several episodes of hypoglycemia, the most recent one causing him to become non-responsive and needing emergency veterinary care. They suspect he may have a liver shunt and/or other issues causing him to become hypoglycemic and neurological. Of course Yorkies Inc agreed to take him on. We want to give him the best chance he needs in order to survive and figure out what is wrong with him. Eddy is being transferred to Tufts for further testing and medical care. Once we have more information it will be posted. In the meantime, please send positive thoughts and prayers to little Eddy and consider making a donation to help with his medical expenses. All friends of Eddy will be listed below. Thank you!
1/7/16 Update: Eddy has been diagnosed with severe pneumonia in several lobes of his lungs and is septic from the severe infection. He is currently in the intensive care unit in an oxygen cage to help with his breathing and is receiving multiply antibiotics,  IV fluids and dextrose. The next few days will be critical for Eddy. We still haven't ruled out a liver shunt, but right now we need to battle his pneumonia before we can do any further diagnostics. Thank you for your support.

 1/22/16 Update: Eddy is out of the hospital and will continue two different antibiotics for the next few weeks. Once he is finished with them we will be discussing
 further diagnostics with his vet looking at a possible liver shunt due to high bile acids. Please consider making a donation towards his vetting expenses as his bill was 
over $2000 for his hospital stay and he still will need further vetting. Thank you

Meet Stash, short for Moustache! Stash is an adorable 2 year old male Yorkie who weighs almost 5 lbs. Stash is a total cuddle bug, once he gets to know you.  He gets
 along fine with the other dogs in the house and enjoys playing with them. It did take him a few days to adjust to them, but now he is enjoying being with his foster siblings 
and playing with them and toys. Stash walks well on a leash, but is a little nervous meeting strangers and other dogs, he will hide between your legs and prefers to keep on
walking instead of greeting them.  He also enjoys running in a fenced yard. He is doing well with the house training using both a pee pad and going outside. We noticed 
when Stash came in that he would hold up his left hind leg while standing. We took him to the vets and our suspicion was confirmed. Stash has legg perthes
  and is going to need surgery to fix his hip. Please keep Stash in your thoughts and please consider making a donation towards his vetting expenses. All friends of Stash
 will be listed below. Thank you!

1/22/16 Stash had his surgery and his vet feels it went very well. He will need to recover for the next two weeks then we will begin to process applications for Stash. 
If you would like to be considered to adopt Stash, please fill out an application.  Any questions please write to

Lola is a 9-10yo female Yorkie who's just so sweet. She weighs about 8lbs. Lola was surrendered to a shelter when her senior mom became ill. She wasn't in the best of shape due to an elderly owner and poor diet and her kidney values weren't good. We have since gotten her on a proper diet and her levels have improved quite a bit. She will need to remain on the special diet but is great at eating and is doing very well. Lola is house trained and will use a pee pad if she has to be left for longer then 4 hours. She is a very well behaved pup who would just love a lap and some attention. Lola is use to having another dog her size around but may also do well as an only if there is someone home for company. If interested in adopting Lola please submit an adoption application. Any questions please email Cathie@yorkiesinc.com





  Pepper is a loving 8yo female Yorkie who weighs about 12-13lbs.  She is spayed and up to date on vaccines and is healthy. She loves people and running in a fenced yard. Does well on a leash and enjoys walking. She doesn't particularly like other small dogs but may do ok with larger ones. She'd be fine as an only and that is what she's accustom to. She'd be better with someone who is retired or works from home as she needs to get out to potty during the day.  She loves giving kisses and being close. She isn't a fan of thunder or fireworks...which is pretty typical! If interested in adopting Pepper please submit an adoption application. Any questions please email Cathie@yorkiesinc.com


Pixie is our newest special needs pup who weighs just 1.4lbs at 8 months old! She has a defect in her spine at her C1 and C2 vertebrae known as Atlanto Axial Sub-luxation or Instability also known as AAI. For those of you have been following us for some time, you may remember Posey who was our very first AAI pup. This is a very serious condition where the first two vertebrae in the neck are dislocated. Over the past few years we are seeing more and more small dogs, and Yorkies in particular, born with this condition.  They are born with the malformation, but then usually an injury occurs to bring it on. Pups can die instantly, but those who survive are usually left paralyzed, or have extreme difficulty walking. Depending on the severity or placement of the bones,  conservative treatment would include splinting the neck and body. Then being kept low key for a period of months to allow the bones to grow into an alignment and fuse as the puppy grows. In other cases the C1 vertebrae is "telescoping" into C2 so that fusion will likely not happen even with splinting.

When we got the call for Pixie she was on a decline, so we immediately set up an appointment to see Neurologist Dr Faissler at Tufts in Grafton MA. so Pixie could be seen right away. A few tests were done, along with a CT scan that confirmed Pixie does in fact have a severe AAI. On top of that she has an old skull fracture. For her size and the severity of her injury Dr Faissler was amazed that not only had she survived, but that with the neck splint she can actually still walk! We were so thankful that she was walking too! Sadly, though the CT scan showed her vertebrae are telescoping and she is not expected to "fuse" over time so surgery is likely her only option. The good news is, if we can get her body condition improved, and she gets stronger she should be a good candidate for the surgery in a few months. In Dr Faissler's words "she is a nice little dog and she is a fighter" We are hoping with your help that we can give her the fighting chance, and will have the funds in place when she's ready! Her vetting so far was $1,147.68 and we are looking at between $3000-4000 for surgery. Please consider a becoming a "friend" to Pixie.  Pixie is not available for adoption at this time. Thank you so much!
6/27/2015: Pixie has over all been doing well and is still very mobile, yet she had been having some very raspy breathing and we had also discovered that her ribs didn't feel right on her right side. We got her in for a recheck and sadly it was confirmed with x-rays that she does in fact have yet another skeletal abnormality! The ribs on her right side are not completely formed and are all shorter and not as concave as they should be. Her left side is not exactly normal either but better then her right. This new information means that even with surgery she will always be a very fragile dog.  The trouble with her breathing could be coming from this but may also be part of the AAI luxation or position of neck brace. The brace was changed and she seems slightly better today. On a good note she is doing remarkably well neurologically and the vet is amazed considering. She has a great attitude and has gained 2 oz. but still only weighs 1.8lbs. Luckily she doesn't realize just how broken she is and lives each day to the fullest. We are looking into getting her retained deciduous teeth removed so that maybe she'll do better eating.
1/21/16: Pixie will be going in for a spay and puppy teeth removed in the next couple weeks. She still remains in the brace and this will be something we will be continuing with for her rather then risk the surgery. She is doing as well as can be expected and is a happy girl.

Polka Dot


Meet Polka Dot a 1yo tiny female Yorkie who is just adorable. Polka Dot was born with a deformity in her rib cage on her left side. We have had her seen by a specialist who feels that as long as she is placed in the right situation this should not cause her any serious issues. Of course she is more fragile but that would be the case given her size of under 3lbs anyway. Our vet suggested keeping her in a coat or sweater during cooler months and a harness type vest for walks and playing. She is a playful sweet little girl and is healthy and happy and typical yorkie in every other way. We would like her with another tiny pup. We will not be placing her with dogs over 5lbs or any children in the home and will be extra protective about her placement for very obvious reasons. She is house trained for a pee pad or will go outside when taken. She is spayed, micro-chipped and up to date on all vaccines. Her retained puppy teeth were also removed. If you are interested in adopting please submit an adoption application. Any questions please email Cathie@yorkiesinc.com

Mason & Tia

Meet Mason and Tia and adorable little 4lb pair! Tia is 7yo and very friendly and confident she is all up to date and is house trained to pee pads or will go outside. Mason is little 3 1/2 yo special needs boy. He was born with a deficit in his cerebellum that leaves him wobbly in his walking and a bit unstable. This doesn't take away from his sweet, loving personality once he knows and trusts you. He loves to be held and will follow you around and is a pretty typical little guy for the most part.  He will potty outside or on a pee pad as well. When given a large area we have kept him in a belly band just to be safe. He has a soft quiet bark not sure if this is due to his disability or if he was debarked at some point. But he is an endearing little boy you just want to love. He is healthy and happy in every other way. He is up to date and neutered.. Tia is your typical yorkie girl and is curious and fun.  She is up to date on vaccines and spayed. We will be getting a her a dental and micro chip before she is placed. She is a wonderful big sister to Mason and we think he does better with her around. For this reason we would like to find them a home together if at all possible. Because of Mason's wobbliness we'd like a home with no stairs and no young children. They would be fine with other pets in the home of the same size. If you have any questions please email Cathie@yorkiesinc.com

 Liver 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 shunts.
