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!

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 large dogs regardless of their behavior. We will only separate them if home has another playful small dog. If interested in these two please submit an application.

Skeeter

We just received yet another urgent Plea! This time a little Yorkie has been hit by a car! The Vet hospital asked if we would assume responsibility for his care. His owners no longer wanted him and had surrendered him to the hospital. Of course we said we'd take him. We will update and add pictures as soon as we know more. Please help us help Skeeter!
11/8/17: Skeeter a 5yo 8-9lb male Yorkie has some contusions to his lungs, a fractured rib and a dislocated right hip. Vets tried to put the hip joint back in place but after 24 hrs it was dislocated again. He is going to need an FHO surgery of that hip. He is otherwise a very lucky little guy and should make a full recovery. Our prayers are answered. We are hoping you can help us help Skeeter recover!
11/26/17: Skeeter has had the FHO surgery and is doing well! He has to have exercises done daily to keep the hip flexible. He is a love of a pup and is house trained! He will be ready for adoption in a couple weeks. 
12/26/17: Skeeter is still doing some PT and is just starting to put leg down. Its been longer then we expected but he is doing well. He could be placed in new home if they are will to continue with the therapy. He would do well as an only or with another dog his size to play with. He has taken to playing with Bentley here and they do seem to enjoy each other.
1/27/2017: Skeeter is ready for adoption!! He is using his leg about 85% of the time and that's improving every day. He is a love...likes attention and loves to play and explore the yard. He also loves to snuggle and the couch is his favorite spot. If interested in adopting please submit an application.

Benny



Benny came to us as an urgent plea. Benny is a 5yo 10lbs 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.

Hazelnut & Peanut
(bonded pair)

Hazelnut and Peanut are bonded siblings who are looking for a home together. They are 8 months old and weigh around 5 lbs each. They love to play, chase each other, wrestle and cuddle. They are a fun duo with a lot of personality and love to give. As much as they love to be with each other they also love being with people and enjoy lap time and snuggling. They would love their new home to have a fenced in yard so once the weather is finally nice again they can run and explore. They are pretty well pee pad trained and will go outside if taken. They will need further work walking on a leash once the weather is nice and they are okay riding in the car. They are in good health and ready for their new home. If you have any questions about these two please write to kerri@yorkiesinc.com if you would like to be considered to adopt them please fill out an application.

Pearl


 

Pearl is now 11 months old, weighs around 5.5 lbs and is ready for her new home, Pearl would love a new home with another small playful dog her size and a fenced in yard to play in. Pearl is the perfect combination between a lap dog and a playful little girl. She loves to cuddle with people but also loves a good play session with the other dogs in the house. She is doing well using a pee pad and going outside, but will need reinforcement in her new home. She loves to ride in the car and is still getting use to walking on a leash (the weather has not been helping with that!)  If you would like to be considered please fill out an application. Any questions please email Kerri at kerri@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.
