Yorkies Inc
A New England based agency specializing in re-homing, adoption and rescue of Yorkshire Terriers...


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!

Bentley

Help needed!


 

We got a desperate plea to help this little guy! He's been diagnosed with a Liver shunt. We took him in to our vet right away and the single extra hepatic shunt was confirmed with ultrasound. A single shunt is repairable but he's going to need an expensive surgery, estimated at $3800-4200. He is on three different medications and a special low protein diet to  keep him stable while he awaits surgery, and he's doing well. Please keep him in your prayers and consider donated to help us save this little guy. All donators will be listed as Friends to Bentley. Thank you

Donny



Meet Donny! This little 6.5lb male is just 1 1/2 years old. He is gorgeous, healthy and is energetic and fun. He would love a fenced yard and does very well with other dogs and would do well with a playmate. He was surrendered by his show breeder as he was a bit on the bigger side to use for breeding. He will make someone a wonderful loving pet. He will be getting neutered and updated on vaccines as well as a dental cleaning. If interested in adopting Donny please submit an application.
 

Jewel

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.

 

Rufus


 

Rufus is a gorgeous  4.4lb male Long haired Chihuahua who is 6yo. He was just retired from a show breeder. He has been neutered, updated on all vaccines and he was tested negative for heartworm and Lyme disease. He is typical Chi and very skittish when he first meets you but warms up fast and then is a little snuggle bug! He does fine with other pups and likes to play once comfortable. He will make a wonderful companion in a lower key home. Because of his size and shyness we will not place him with small children or big dogs. If interested in Rufus please submit an adoption application.
 

Oliver

                             

Oliver is a 4.6lb male Yorkie who's just 5 months old. He was surrendered to us with an injury. He fell down the stairs and was limping. We took him in and got him to our vet for Xrays. It was confirmed that he has three broken bones in his right front paw. He was splinted and is on crate rest for the next 4 weeks or so and will get weekly rechecks with our vet. Luckily, he should make a full recovery. Oliver is neutered and up to date on all vaccines. If interested in adopting Oliver when he is ready please submit an adoption application.
Update 8/20/17: Oliver is healing nicely! He needs about another 4 weeks in the splint but it's not slowing him down at all! This boy is playful and fun!

Update 10/8/17: The splint is OFF!  Oliver is doing great! He has calmed down considerably since having the splint removed and is enjoying himself. He will be ready for his new home in a couple weeks. He would do best with another pup his size to play with. He also loves to be held and cuddled so he's also hoping for some lap time.

 

Maui



Maui is an adorable 14 week old male Yorkie puppy who came into Yorkies Inc due to a heart condition. Maui went to the cardiologist for diagnostics at Tufts University if Grafton and was diagnosed with PDA a heart condition due to a duct not fully closing This causes the heart to work too hard and the blood not to flow properly. He now needs surgery in order to close the duct and to prevent future heart failure. Due to his heart already working so hard at such a young age,  it has been advised that we have surgery as soon as possible to correct the problem in order to prevent future damage to his little heart. If you would like to become a friend to "Maui" and help with his surgery please use the PayPal button below. All Friends will be posted. Thank you (stay updated on these three on our Facebook page!)
 

8/17 Maui had heart surgery and is recovering nicely. He will need to go back to the vets in a few months  for a re-check and to be neutered.
 
9/17 Maui is now 5 months old and continues to do great. He  will be going back to Tufts in the middle of October for a re-check with the plan to be neutered as long as all goes well. 

All "Friends" donating $25.00 or more will receive a Special Yorkies Inc Jar Opener as a "Thank you" from our "Hawaiian Heart Trio"

Tinsel



Meet Tinsel! Tinsel is a very sweet Yorkie estimated to be about 10 years old. Tinsel was turned into a shelter as a stray in very bad condition. He was so matted, he needed to be sedated in order to be be groomed. While we do not know his story it is obvious that he has been severly neglected the last few years of his life. We also know that this is all about to change as Tinsel is now with Yorkies Inc in a loving foster home getting all the love and attention he deserves with the plan to find his new loving forever home to continue giving him the life he deserves. Tinsel is already beginning to trust again, wagging his tail, greeting you at the door, coming over and putting his front legs on you wanting to be picked up and patted. He just loves cuddling on your lap and will curl right in. If he had his choice he would be in your lap all day and night long!! He still is wary of you invading his space, such as when he is sleeping in a dog bed, but if you wait for him to come out of his bed you can easily pick him up. He also enjoys going for walks and riding in the car. Tinsel has a cataract in one eye, which we will be having looked at by a specialist. Tinsel has been vetted including a neuter, dental, vaccines and HW testing and received a clean bill of health. If you have room in your heart for a sweet little guy who needs a new start on life please fill out an application. Any questions you can write to kerri@yorkiesinc.com

3/28/16 Update: Tinsel went to the eye doctor and due to the cataract being mature he is not a candidate for cataract surgery. He however will be having surgery to fix his eye lid and remove extra eye lashes which is causing his eye to leak. This surgery will be April 6th.

4/18/16 Update: Surgery went well and his eye is no longer leaking. Tinsel is now ready for his new home. If interested in being Tinsel's new person please submit an application.

2/21/17 Tinsel Update: While being groomed a large lump was discovered on Tinsel near his tail. We immediately brought Tinsel to the vets and it was determined that Tinsel had a perineal hernia. Due to how large and fast the hernia appeared and the complications that can occur Tinsel was scheduled for surgery as soon as possible at Tufts.
 
2/24/17 Tinsel had his hernia surgery at Tufts and is recovering nicely in his foster home. His surgeon felt that the surgery went smoothly and that it was a success. Please consider making a donation to help with this unexpected medical expense. All friends of Tinsel will be listed below. Thank you!

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
2/6/2016: Polka Dot has been "off" for the last few months and we have been exploring many different possibilities for this. She had a case of Giardia and a low B12 but after that was treated the problems didn't resolve. She often shook for no apparent reason... we weren't sure if it was pain, cold, or something else.  We tested with a blood work and ultrasound to be sure she didn't have a Liver Shunt. Both showed negative. Then in just the past month we started seeing more...she'd seem unstable in her footing. She'd sometimes seem just like a clumsy pup but other times we could see it wasn't a normal gait. We brought her in to be seen my the Neurologist and Xrays showed this little girl also has an AAI luxation just like Pixie! She has been splinted to be sure she's protected from getting any worse. She is doing ok but will live her life in the neck brace/splint for her protection and safety. This now makes her much more of a special needs pup. Anyone considering adopting must understand the brace can not be removed and this will require more trips to the vet for changing and rechecks.  No homes with children, or dogs larger then 5-6lbs will be considered. Experienced home with ideal Vet references a must.

 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.
