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!
This is Stella, she is a 7yo 7lb female Yorkie who was
recently retired by her breeder. She sought us out to find the
perfect home for this sweet little girl. Stella is shy at
first but warmed up in just a day or so. She is calm and quiet
and loves being close to you. Belly rubs are one of her
favorite things! She'll jump up on the chair or couch to lay
next to you, but is never a bother. She does well with the
other pups in her foster home with no issues. So small calm
dogs her size would be fine but she could easily go as an
only. She is great at using a pee pad which makes it
nice to not have to take her out in inclement weather. But she
will also "go" outside...a fenced in yard is another of her
favorites during nice weather! She loves her baby carrots as a
snack and its a great way to reward her! She is not use to a
leash so that would need a bit of time to get use to.
She was just completely vetted and is ready for her new home.
If interested in the sweetie please submit an application. Any
Meet KiKi a 5yo female yorkie who is friendly and and sweet!
She was just retired by her breeder who wanted to find the
ideal home for this wonderful gal! She weighs aprox 10lbs
right now but is pretty chunky after her last litter and
should weigh more like 7.5lbs. We are working on getting her
weight down while she is her with us but she is ready for a
new home if family can continue to work on this. She loves
attention and lap time but is also active and fun! She would
do well in a family situation with kids but will also be just
as at home with a retired person. An extended family might be
ideal, or a senior home where grandkids visit. She also does
well with other dogs as she does well interacting with them.
She is healthy, spayed up to date on vaccines and is micro
chipped. She also just had a dental cleaning...she lost a few
teeth but that hasn't stopped her at all and he breath and
kisses are so much better now! Any questions email
Cathie@yorkiesinc.com If interested in adopting
Kiki please submit an application.
Ru is an
adorable, smart 12 week old mixed breed, male puppy. He weighs about
1.7lb. His exact breed is unknown but we believe his mother was a Shih
Tzu and dad was possibly Chihuahua. Ru is the type of pup that will be
extremely loyal, loving and with the right training,
very well-behaved. He learned to sit & come in
just 2 days and is in the process of learning to use a puppy pad, turn
in a circle and go to his bed. He is motivated by food which makes
training much easier. This tiny sweetheart is full of energy, loves to
play, explore and enjoys belly rubs. He is expected to stay small in
size but has more than enough heart to make up for it. Ru is a charismatic, delightful pup that is sure to bring joy.
Because of his demure size we will not be placing him in a home with
young children or larger pets. He is currently being fostered with a
3.5lb pup and would do best in a similar situation. Ru will be fully
vetted and neutered and micro chipped. If interested in adopting Ru
please submit an adoption application.
Pollyanna is all grown up and has had her surgery and the eye was
removed. She is now pain free and ready for adoption! She is a spirited
4.5lbs little girl with a wonderful out look! She has set no
limitations on herself and we haven't either. She can jump up on the
sofa and has great agility! She would do well with another playful pup
or might even be ok as an only with someone who is home to give her the
attention she has been use to. Please do think this little one is frail
or needy...she is not by any means! She is Yorkie through and through.
She minds well and does great with the puppy pads. Right now she isn't
a fan of being outside. She will also need some work with leash
training but she is a super smarty pants and we have no doubt she'll
master whatever challenge is set for her. If interested in adopting
Polly Please submit an adoption application.
This is little Pollyanna! She is
just a tiny little thing not even one pound when she arrived in June!
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!
Update 9/30/14: Pollyanna is now
2.8lbs and is finished with her DHPP series. We will be waiting another
couple weeks to give her rabies vaccine and we have scheduled surgery
for later in October.
Update: 10/29: Pollyannas surgery is scheduled for Nov 7th.
11/7/2014: Pollyanna had her
surgery today and did very well. She is a bit swollen and a little out
of sorts tonight but that is to be expected. She will need to have
crate rest for the next week....then she can return pain free to her
1/4/2015: Pollyanna has had her surgery and the eye was removed. She is
now pain free and ready for adoption! She is a spirited 5lbs little
girl with a wonderful out look! She has set no limitations on herself
and we haven't either. She can jump up on the sofa and has great
agility! She would do well with another playful pup or might even be ok
as an only with someone who is home to give her the attention she has
been use to. Please do think this little one is frail or needy...she is
not by any means! She is Yorkie through and through. She minds well and
does great with the puppy pads. Right now she isn't a fan of being
outside. She will also need some work with leash training but she is a
super smarty pants and we have no doubt she'll master whatever
challenge is set for her. If interested in adopting Polly Please submit

Maurice is a
handsome 6 month old male Yorkie who weighs around 8 lbs. He
really is a sweet little guy. He loves to held and will hug into
you, but he also is a typical puppy, very curious playing with toys and
the other dogs. Maurice loves playing with other small dogs and would
do best in a home with another small dog to play with. His whole body
shakes with excitement when he sees another dog to play with and will
do whatever he can in order to get them to play. He is learning how to
sit and give a paw. Maurice is doing well with the house training if
taken out consistently and if left alone has access to a pee pad. He is
doing well peeing outside but will need reinforcement in his new home
which is to be expected still being so young. He is use to a
fenced in yard and has been practicing walking on the leash, but will
need to continue leash walking in his new home. He has been fully
vetted, is in good health and ready for his new home. If you would
like to be considered to adopt please fill out an application. Any
questions please write to email@example.com
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.
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
Louie! Louie is an adorable 6 year old male Yorkie with a great
personality! He weighs 7lbs 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. 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, with bone loss on his bottom jaw,
most likely due to no prior dental care, but that has not stopped him
from being able to eat, which he loves to do and could actually loose a
couple of pounds. Louie loves to be with people, always looking
to be patted and if you stop he lets you know that he wants more. Louie
enjoys being outside and would love a fenced in yard to roam around in
and sun bathe. However, he does like to look for any way to escape so
he could never be outside without a watchful eye and a very secured
fenced yard. He also enjoys going for walks. Louie gets along well with
the other dogs in the house and once in awhile you can find him in the
same bed, but he has no interest in playing with them He does
need work on house training and feel that might have been the reason he
was turned in. While Louie has made good progress with the house
training we are not sure if he will ever be fully house trained, but
his loving personality by far makes up for this. 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
TT is a 3 year old female
Yorkie who weighs 4 lbs. TT was going to be a show dog but she was too
small and timid 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, her size, for TT to play with and bring her out of
her shell. Once comfortable TT has a more outgoing personality and will
give kisses, play with toys and the other dogs, run in the yard and
want to be held. 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. Due to this we are looking
for a home with no children as their fast movement and activity would
be too much for TT. TT is pretty well pee pad trained and her new home
should be willing to use them as well. She will go when
outside however, she prefers to use the pee pad and often uses it after
being out. TT loves running in a fenced yard and would like her new
home to have a secured yard. She will need further work walking on a
leash, as this still makes her nervous. TT loves to ride in the car and
readily jumps in a dog bag with her foster siblings to go. If you live
in New England and would like to be considered for TT please submit an
application. Any questions please write to email@example.com

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"
