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!

Owen



Meet Owen a pure bred male Yorkie! This little 8lber just turned a year old and is full of fun, loves to play and snugglie too! He is healthy and fully vetted including neuter, all vaccines and micro chipped. He does wonderful with other small dogs. He'd do great with a fenced yard and another dog or two to play. He'd be fine with children over 10 years old. He is leash trained and crate trained. He is house trained if taken out at regular intervals. If interested in this cutie please submit an application.

 

                                 Snickers & Coconut

                             

                                 

Snickers and Coconut are happy 6 year old male Yorkies who are in need of a new home together. They have been together since they were puppies and we would like to keep them together. Coconut is a 12 lb Yorkie with the biggest brown eyes and just a love! He will jump in your lap and give you tons of kisses. His brother Snickers is a 9 lb "chocolate" Yorkie who is quite a character. Snickers is also very friendly and loves to be patted. They are very happy dogs loving attention and going for walks. They would love an active family who likes to go for walks and a fenced in yard for them to run, wrestle and chase each other in. They would be fine in a home with another dog, but not any cats as Snickers thinks chasing them is a fun game. They are house broken and crate trained. If you are interested in them please fill out an application now so you don't want to miss out on this fun duo!
 


Jewels

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 small donation.
7/31/18: Jewel has recovered remarkably well and we are now taking applications for her new home. She is still on a low protein diet for now but will transition to a regular diet in a couple months. She loves people and playing with her toys especially small balls. Jewel does well with kids but due to size we will not be placing her in a home with children under 10yo. She is getting use to other dogs and is fine with them but we are only seeing slight interest in playing with them...mostly due to non exposure and maybe in time she would want to play with them too.  If interested in adopting Jewels please submit an application.

JJ



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!
 


Daisy


 

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.


Ava

      
 

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 application.


Mighty

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.
 


Tempi & Crouton

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 only 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
 needs a "Forever Foster" home




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 thoughts.

Looking for a "Forever Foster" Home

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


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.
