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.

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.

Moxie & Koffee
Moxie & Koffee are in need of
a new home....they are sweet and have always been together. We'd really
love for them to be able to remain that way. Moxie is a 10yo
female who weighs maybe 5lbs. Koffee is 12yo and about 10lbs.
Both pups do great with kids and other dogs and cats. They are use to a
fenced yard and love being outside. They are use to be left for
long periods but will not hold it so would have to be contained to an
area. They do use a pee pad if contained. Koffee will bark if he needs
to go out. Both love human attention and might do better with someone
at home more. Moxie is typical female and loves attention...she smiles
at you though she hasn't many teeth left since being updated on
vetting.. This doesn't stop her from eating her kibble or treats!
Koffee loves attention too and as long as you have a hand on him he'd
sit for hours. If you think you could open your hear and home to these
two special seniors please submit an adoption application. If you have
any questions please email Cathie@yorkiesinc.com
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

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
is a beautiful two year old female Yorkie who weighs almost 4 lbs. TT
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

together. If interested in being considered for Vincent please fill out

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

Jenna getting a bath at Tufts
(pic courtesy of Andrew Cunningham)
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.
become a Yorkies Inc. Forever Foster.
We are still looking for a special home for him but we would be
providing his continued Veterinary care. Please read about him further
on our "Forever Foster" page.

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"
