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!



Libby an aprox. 2yo female Yorkie/Silky, was posted on Facebook by a local animal control as a stray, possibly hit by a car, and injured. She was at the shelter on pain meds waiting for someone to come forward to claim her. Sadly, that never happened. We couldn't stand by idle knowing she was alone and suffering. We are picking her up tomorrow and will get her the surgery she needs to repair a fractured femoral head to her right rear leg. But we are going to need your help. Please consider making a donation, of any size, to her surgical care. We will update you with details soon.

Meet Marley! Marley is a very sweet 10 year old Yorkie who weighs around 11lbs. Marley's owner needed to move and couldn't bring Marley with her. He is an easy going pup who seems to like everyone. He gets very excited when you come home and will wiggle his whole body and talk to you :-) Marley gets along fine with other dogs and cats. He is housetrained and enjoys cuddling. He is in good health, but still needs a dental before he is ready for his new home. If you have any questions please write to kerri@yorkiesinc.com  If interested in adopting Marley please submit an application



This little darling is Reddy, a 4yo long haired Chi that weighs just 3 1/2lbs! In typical Chi fashion she's shy at first but what a sweetheart when she warms up! She's animated and gives kisses. She was with a breeder but she never had a litter so she was retired and she's loving her new life! She's discovered doggie beds and loves them! She's a clean pup and is using pee pads in her foster home but will also go outside if taken frequently. She is not leash trained but that will come once she's comfortable. She does very well with the other fosters her size and it may help her adjust to have another small dog in the home. Because of her size we will not be placing her with small children. She is spayed had a dental cleaning and is up to date on all vaccines. She's also micro-chipped and had a blood panel done to insure health. If interested in adopting please submit an adoption application. Any questions please email Cathie@yorkiesinc.com



Lulu is a beautiful 18 month old female Yorkie who weighs around 4 lbs. Lulu has been diagnosed with PDA a heart condition due to a duct not closing when she was a puppy. This causes the heart to work too hard and the blood not to flow properly. She now needs surgery in order to close the duct and to prevent heart failure. Please consider making a donation towards Lulu's surgery in order to save her life. We were quoted surgery would cost around $3000. All friends of Lulu will be listed below. Thank you.
Update 10/14/16: Lulu will be having her surgery on October 26th. Please keep her in your thoughts.
Update 10/26/16 Lulu's surgery has been postponed due to needing to special order a smaller coil than they typically have on hand. Once we have her new surgery date we post an update.
11/30: Lulu will be having her heart surgery today. Please continue to keep her in your thoughts.

Update 1/3/17 Lulu had her heart surgery at the end of November and the cardiologist felt that it went very well. She will need to go back for a recheck in about 4 weeks to make sure that the coil is still where it should be. After that Lulu should be cleared to be able to be spayed and have a very much needed dental cleaning.

  This little guy is our newest addition! Meet Rio (named after this years Olympics) is a 4 month old 3lb male Yorkie. He was surrendered because he has a grade 3 heart murmur. He is acting very normal right now and he's very much enjoying playing and being a typical puppy. We need to do further diagnostics to see exactly what's going on and if this is something that can be repaired. He will need at least an echocardiogram and likely some other testing. Please consider becoming a friend to Rio!

Update: Rio went to the cardiologist and had an echo done. He has been diagnosed with VSD (ventricular septal defect). He has a small hole in his heart, from a birth defect. Due to the small size of the hole the cardiologist felt his prognosis was good and he didn't need any medications or restrictions at this time. Rio however will need to be followed by a cardiologist for life including having echocardiograms as determined by his cardiologist. This will become the responsibility of his new owner. Our cardiologist has recommended another echocardiogram in about 6-9 months to look at the volume in his heart. If interested in being considered for Rio please fill out an application.

11/23/16 Rio is now 7 months old and around 4.5 lbs. He has been neutered, but needs his baby teeth removed before being completely ready for his new home. Rio is an active little guy who loves to play with other dogs, go for walks and chase squirrels and leaves in a fenced in yard. Rio loves to play with his foster brother Eddy and would love to be adopted with him. We will not be placing Rio in a home as an only as he loves playing too much. If you have any questions please wrote to kerri@yorkiesinc.com

Meet Willow! This little wisp of a pup is 18 months old is healthy and adorable. She was surrendered because the bigger female Yorkie in the home already was too put off with another alpha female. Willow while small likes to be in charge and for that reason we will not be putting her in a home with a bigger pup. She would do ok with a laid back male no bigger then 5-6lbs. We will not be placing her in a home with children or cats as she is too small. She is doing well with pee pads and she loves being cuddled. If interested in adopting Willow please submit an application.



Meet YoYo an 8 month old male Yorkie who weighs about 5 1/2lbs...he should be about 6lbs full grown. He was just released to us from his show breeder who decided not to use him for show. He is healthy and was just completely vetted including neuter, Lyme Heartworm negative, micro-chipped, and retained puppy teeth removed. He loves to play with toys, people and other pups his size. He will need to work on housetraining but is doing well. If interested in adopting YoYo please submit an application.




Meet Eddy our newest foster with Yorkies Inc. We received a plea from a veterinary hospital in NH asking if we could take Eddy into Yorkies Inc. Eddy is a 6 month old 2.1lb male Chorkie (Chi/Yorkie mix). Little Eddy has had several episodes of hypoglycemia, the most recent one causing him to become non-responsive and needing emergency veterinary care. They suspect he may have a liver shunt and/or other issues causing him to become hypoglycemic and neurological. Of course Yorkies Inc agreed to take him on. We want to give him the best chance he needs in order to survive and figure out what is wrong with him. Eddy is being transferred to Tufts for further testing and medical care. Once we have more information it will be posted. In the meantime, please send positive thoughts and prayers to little Eddy and consider making a donation to help with his medical expenses. All friends of Eddy will be listed below. Thank you!
1/7/16 Update: Eddy has been diagnosed with severe pneumonia in several lobes of his lungs and is septic from the severe infection. He is currently in the intensive care unit in an oxygen cage to help with his breathing and is receiving multiply antibiotics,  IV fluids and dextrose. The next few days will be critical for Eddy. We still haven't ruled out a liver shunt, but right now we need to battle his pneumonia before we can do any further diagnostics. Thank you for your support.

 1/22/16 Update: Eddy is out of the hospital and will continue two different antibiotics for the next few weeks. Once he is finished with them we will be discussing
 further diagnostics with his vet looking at a possible liver shunt due to high bile acids. Please consider making a donation towards his vetting expenses as his bill was 
over $2000 for his hospital stay and he still will need further vetting. Thank you 

4/12/16: Eddy had a nuclear scan which showed a small liver shunt in a hard to find location on an ultra sound. We will be scheduling surgery to fix the shunt in the next week. Eddy also just spent three days in the hospital for low blood sugar, which the vets felt was due to his liver shunt. Please keep Eddy in your thoughts and consider making a donation to help pay with his medical expenses. Thank you!

Update: 5/1 Eddy had successful liver shunt surgery! They were able to find and fix the shunt. He should be ready for adoption in about 4 weeks. We will be looking for a home with another small dog for Eddy to play with as he loves to play with his foster siblings. We will not be placing him in a home with bigger dogs. If interested in being considered please submit an application.

6/6/16 Eddy update. Eddy ended up needing emergency eye surgery from an ulcer that quickly become infected and turned into a melting ulcer. Emergency surgery at Tufts was needed in order to save his eye and vision. The surgery went well and his vet feels that it was a success. He will need to remain on eye drops until the eye has fully healed and will be going back for frequent re-checks. 
Update 10/16 Eddy's eye continues to heal nicely and he will be going back for another recheck this month. There is still scar tissue on the eye from the graft but the opthamologist is hopeful that the scar tissue will continue to get smaller.

After coming home from the hospital for his eye surgery it was noticed that Eddy was favoring one of his back hind leg. Another trip to Tufts and x-rays confirmed a torn acl. After trying crate rest he still was favoring his leg so Eddy will be having surgery to fix his knee and torn acl at the same time. After surgery Eddy will need to be on strict crate rest, which will be hard for such an active guy! Please keep him in your thoughts and we will update once he has had surgery. Thank you!

11/23/16 Eddy had patella surgery at the end of October and continues to recover nicely. He needs to go back to tufts for x-rays in about 4 weeks to make sure that his knee is healing correctly. Eddy loves to play with his foster brother Rio (it has been hard stopping them from playing while Eddy recovers) and would love to be adopted with him if possible. We will not be placing Eddy as an only or with bigger dogs. He loves to play with other dogs his size.

Please consider becoming a friend of Eddy and making a donation to help with his vetting expenses. Between when Eddy first came in with severe pneumonia and needed to spend a week in the hospital, his episode of severe hyperglycemia causing him to once again be hospitalized, his liver shunt surgery and now the recent eye surgery Yorkies Inc has spent over $8000 on Eddy. Eddy is a true fighter and worth every penny spent, but we need your help to cover his expenses. Please consider donating to Eddy and helping with his medical expenses. Yorkies Inc and Eddy thanks you!

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.

Mason & Tia

Meet Mason and Tia and adorable little 4lb pair! Tia is 8yo and very friendly and confident she is all up to date and is house trained to pee pads or will go outside. Mason is little 4 1/2 yo special needs boy. He was born with a deficit in his cerebellum that leaves him wobbly in his walking and a bit unstable. This doesn't take away from his sweet, loving personality once he knows and trusts you. He loves to be held and will follow you around and is a pretty typical little guy for the most part.  He will potty outside or on a pee pad as well. He has a soft quiet bark and we have determined that he was debarked at some point. But he is an endearing little boy you just want to love. He is healthy and happy in every other way. He is up to date and neutered.. Tia is your typical yorkie girl and is curious and fun.  She is up to date on vaccines and spayed. she has had a dental and micro chip.  She is a wonderful big sister to Mason and we think he does better with her around. For this reason we would like to find them a home together if at all possible. Because of Mason's wobbliness we'd like a home with no stairs and no young children. They would be fine with other pets in the home of the same size. If you have any questions please email Cathie@yorkiesinc.com
Update 11/10/16: Tia has a cataract that has developed in one eye. We we're pursuing having it repaired but during pre op testing it was discovered she has a kidney issue...though she has no symptoms it was advised not to pursue the eye surgery. She is doing fine on 1/2pill each day for the kidney disease and an eye drop for the cataract.


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.
