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.
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 William or Willie as he is called! Willie is a sweet 9
month old male Yorkie who weighs almost 5 lbs. Willie was surrendered
by his family due to him needing leg/hip surgery. Willie is not
able to put full weight on his back leg causing him to hop around.
Willie is in pain and we will be getting him in for x rays this week to
see what needs to be done to fix his leg. Please consider making a
donation to Willie's vetting care as he is going to need expensive leg
surgery estimating to cost around $3000. All friends will be listed
below. Once we have more information we will post it. Please keep
Willie in your prayers. Thank you!
Update 7/18: William's surgery is scheduled for July 29th! Please keep
him in your thoughts and prayers
Update 8/2: Willie has had his
surgery and did very well! He is ready to be placed in his forever
home! Thank you for all the support, prayers and well wishes!!
We have reached our goal with
Willie! Thank you to all Willie's "Friends" for the generous support!

This is little Pollyanna! She is
just a tiny little thing not even one pound when she arrived! In our 10
years this is the tiniest, youngest, puppy we have ever taken in! Her
beginning is somewhat of a mystery, as is her actual birth date. But we
have her estimated at between 5-8 weeks old when she arrived. We
received an email with a plea to help this tiny pup, when she was given
away on the street because lady who had her couldn't afford to care for
her. The person who took her in then realized there was a definite
problem with her eye and contacted us. As soon as we saw her we
made arrangements to pick her up that day, and got her immediately to
the ophthalmologist. Unfortunately our fears were confirmed, Pollyanna
has glaucoma and her eye will need to be removed. We are not sure if
it's congenital or if it's due to an injury, so we are watching the
other eye closely. It's fairly uncommon for a congenital glaucoma to be
seen in a pup this young so we are assuming and hoping it was due to
some sort of injury. Pollyanna does have that "Pollyanna" outlook and
is a happy feisty little girl despite the pain she is likely having
with the pressure in her left eye. "Polly Pocket" as she has been nick
named, is currently on three different eye meds and a pain med. Because
of her diminutive size they really want to wait as long as possible to
have her under anesthesia. The longer she can go the better but we
won't have her in pain either. Her emergency visit and care to see the
specialist for the next few months and then surgery is going to be
costly. If you would like to help by making a donation and becoming a
"Friend to Pollyanna" that would be very much appreciated! All Friends
will be listed below. Thank you!
Update 8/18/14: Polly continues to do well and is growing like a
weed! She's almost 2lbs at this point and has started with vaccines and
wormings. Unfortunately while her eye pressure has come down somewhat,
her prognosis is still the same and the eye will need to be removed
when she's old enough. She is otherwise a perfectly, healthy, playful
and loving life! Her eye drops and vet visit expenses continue to mount
and surgery for eye removal is quoted at 1800. We are still looking for
help with donations. Thank you!
Rikki is a 6 year old female
Yorkie who weighs around 9 lbs but could stand to loose a couple of
pounds. Rikki is very sweet and loving. She gets along well
with other dogs. She will use a pee pad in a contained area, but will
need reinforcement with house training in her new home. If interested
Rikki please submit an adoption application. Any questions please write
Nikki & Munchkin
Meet Nikki and Munchkin!
Munchkin is a 7 year old female Yorkie who weighs almost 2.5 lbs. Nikki
is a 15 year old male Yorkie who is in very good health. He
weighs around 7.5 lbs and is very sweet and loving. Their owner
has become ill and is no longer able to care for them, causing them to
need a new forever home together. They have been together since
Munchkin was little and we will not separate them now, as they are
bonded and always looking for each other. Munchkin is very small and
therefore we are looking for a home that has small dog experience and
no small children. Both love to cuddle on the couch with you, give
sweet kisses, relax in the sun, ride well in the car and Nikki gets
very excited when he sees a leash. They have been fully vetted and are
ready for their new home. If you have any questions please write to firstname.lastname@example.org If interested in being considered for the pair please
submit an application.
Tommy is an adorable 7 1/2 yo male pure bred Yorkie with a
sweet personality. He weighs aprox 5lbs. Tommy has been
fully vetted and is ready for his new home.
Tommy is a sweetie who loves to be where you are whether on
the couch or on the bed. He is doing well with house training
if you take him out on a scheduled
basis. While he doesn't really play with other dogs he gets
along with them very well and would be a great companion dog
for another small dog. He is learning to
walk on a leash and enjoys being outside with you. If you are
interested in adopting Tommy please submit an adoption
application. Any questions please write
Cuddy is a handsome 6 1/2
yo male pure bred Yorkie who weighs 5lbs. He has been completely vetted
including all vaccines, neuter and a dental cleaning and is
now ready for his new home. Cuddy is a total lap dog...if he sees a lap
he is in it. He loves to be carried around and would probably love
going out in a dog bag
around town. He comes running to greet you when you come home...if you
are looking for a love bug Cuddy is your guy! Cuddy will need to
continue to work
on his house training, but he is getting better especially now that he
has been neutered. If you are interested in adopting please consider
adoption application. Any questions please write to email@example.com
Meet Louie! Louie is an adorable 6 year
old male Yorkie with a great personality! He weighs 5 lbs and is in
good health. Louie was brought to the MSPCA to be PTS for too
many medical reasons; luckily the vet there did not feel it was
warranted and they contacted Yorkies Inc to see if we could take him
in. We were expecting to get in a sickly dog that needed a lot of
medial care instead we got Louie! Louie is far from a sickly dog. All
Louie needed was a neuter and updating on vaccines. He lost all of his
teeth prior to coming into rescue, most likely due to no prior dental
care, but that has not stopped him from being able to eat (which he
loves). Louie loves to be with people, always looking to be patted and
loved. He enjoys being outside and would love a fenced in yard to roam
around in and sun bathe. (Though he is much too small to be left
alone!) He gets along well with the other dogs in the house, but as of
right now he is not interacting much with them. He does need work on
house training and feel that might have been one of the reasons he was
turned in. However, since we have had him neutered he is already doing
better, but he will need further work. Louie is ready and looking for
his new forever home! If you have any questions please write to
firstname.lastname@example.org If you are interested in being considered
for Louie please submit an application.
Nano is looking for a forever
home! Nano is a pure bred male Yorkie who weighs 12 1/2lbs and is 6yo.
He is healthy up to date on vaccines
and neutered. He is good with kids and with other dogs and would likely
do best in a home where someone is home more then not. He is house
trained but like most yorkies needs to be taken out every 4 hours or
so. Nano is crate trained and use to a fenced yard. He does well on a
leash without pulling. He loves toys and chews treats but is not
a destructive dog. He can be a bolter, and gets excited, so a fenced
yard would work best. He is an active Yorkie so we are looking for a
home where he can safely play with another dog or dogs his size, or
kids or both!
He is use to doggie day care so he'd also be fine in that setting. If
interested in Nano please submit an adoption application on line at our
www.YorkiesInc.com Any question please email
Lola & Livy
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.
Both are healthy and fully vetted including spay, dental, micro chip,
heartworm and Lyme tested and all vaccines. Lola and Livy are ready for
their new home. If interested in adopting please submit an adoption
application. Any questions please email
3/14: Lola & Livy are pee pad
trained and will also go outside if the weather is mild. Livy loves to
play with other playful pups. Lola is more low key. Both love being
close to the fireplace Livy can watch it for hours. Both love human
attention as well. What can we say these two are perfect pups!!
Fionna is a 6 yo female pure
bred Yorkie who weighs about 6 1/2lbs. She has been completely vetted
with all vaccines , spay and a dental cleaning and is healthy. She is a
friendly happy girl who loves to play and cuddle. She is trained to go
on a pee pee pad but is also doing well pottying outside. She would
likely do well as an only or with another dog or two her size. She
would do best with someone home more then not if expected to potty
outside. If you are interested in adopting
please consider submitting an adoption application now.
is a female Yorkie Mix who is approximately 10 months old and weighs 13
lbs. Chilin's owners failed her when she needed them the most. Instead
of bringing Chilin to the vet when her front leg was injured they let
her suffer in pain while the leg healed incorrectly. Those same owners
then betrayed her and brought her to a shelter to be PTS because of her
leg injury. When Yorkies Inc heard about Chilin we could not let that
happen and we took her in. We were optimistic that we would be able to
fix her leg like we have so many others, but sadly this is not the
case. Due to the negligence of her former owners who did not take her
to a vet in a timely manner her leg is now beyond repair. We consulted
with three specialists hoping the leg could be repaired, but all
three stated the same thing...the elbow was shattered (we don't even
want to think about how this happened) and the fracture being over a
month old could not be repaired with promising results. All three
stated that the best option would be to amputate the leg stating dogs
get along great on three legs and Chilin would no longer have to worry
about any pain or discomfort from the leg which she is already not
using. While this was not the news we hoped for we are very lucky to
have Chilin as part of Yorkies Inc and will do whatever is needed to
make sure she is properly taken care of and never betrayed again. We
don't know how anyone could look into her sweet brown eyes and turn
their back on her. She has the most expressive face and just wants to
be loved. Please consider making a donation and becoming a "Friend of
Chilin" to help pay for her needed surgery. We have been quoted between
$1800-$2000. by the orthopedic specialist.
is a beautiful two year old female Yorkie who weighs almost 4 lbs. TT
was going to be a show dog but she was too small and too shy for the
ring. TT loves to play with other small dogs her size and therefore we
are looking for a home that has two other small playful dogs for TT to
play with and bring her out of her shell. Once comfortable TT has a
more outgoing personality loving to give kisses, playing with toys and
other dogs, running around and also cuddling on the couch when she is
done. However, there will be an adjustment period before her new homes
sees this side of her and at times she is still very shy and skittish
in her foster home. 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 email@example.com
This sweet little girl is
Bobbie, a 5lbs, 5yo bundle of fun. She loves everyone and everything,
hasn't meant a stranger yet! Sadly, this little one has a severe
luxating patella that causes her to hold her rear leg up all the time.
This doesn't stop her from doing anything she wants to do including
doing stairs and getting on a favorite spot on the sofa. But we have
X-rayed her and had her seen by our orthopedic specialist and she is a
very good candidate to have this repaired and do well. She is otherwise
completely healthy an once she is ready for adoption will make a
wonderful little companion. She will be going in for the patella repair
on May 9th the same day as Timi. We are in dire need of donations for
all these surgeries these pups have needed. Please consider making a
donation to one or more. Your name will be listed as a "Friend" to that
UPDATE 5/13/2014: Bobbie had her surgery at all went very well! It was
a bit trickier then originally thought. Once her knee was placed in the
right position it was determined that the ligaments were too short to
compensate. Dr Kochin performed a procedure that lengthened the
ligaments around the knee. The result looks great and she is already
touching her foot down. Because of this her recovery will be a bit
longer to insure she doesn't do any damage to the knee while it heals
in this new position. She is being penned for the next 8 weeks! She's
not so happy about that but we are thrilled that in the end she will
have a functioning leg!
6/18/14: Bobbie is almost ready to be placed in her new
home.....we expect it to be within the next two weeks! This is one of
Bobbie's favorite things to do...carry her baby around in her mouth!
She loves toys! Bobbie does well with other dogs but could easily go as
an only for someone who is home and wants a close companion. If
interested in adopting please submit your adoption application now.
9/12/14: Bobbie is ready to go to her new home! If interested
please submit an adoption application.

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"
