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.-$800. 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 $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.  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.

Daniel is an adorable 12 week old male puppy who weighs 3.5lbs. Daniel was surrendered by his owner due to him limping and holding up his back left leg. Daniel went to Tufts and Daniel will be needing two surgeries on his back leg as he has both a hip and knee problem. He will be having FHO hip surgery soon which should help relieve the discomfort he is in and make his hip as good as new, but will need to wait till he is bigger for knee surgery. Please consider making a donation to Daniel's veterinary care as it will be quite costly. All friends of Daniel will be listed. Thank you.

UPDATE: 3/27/14: Daniel had his surgery yesterday and did well. The surgery was pretty extensive...his leg bone was rotated 90% and his patella (knee) was completely off. Because of this his leg was quite constricted. Tissue had to be cut and released at both the hip and the knee area. Bone was cut a bit at the knee to allow Dr Kochin to re-align everything. Wires and pins were used to secure everything in the newly restructured position. This should allow for better range of motion and a functioning leg. Recovery and time will tell. Thank you all for the positive thoughts, prayers, well wishes  and donations!! Please keep them coming as he recovers. Surgery costs us just under 3000.00

Belle & Bailey

Bella and Bailey are looking for a new home. Their owner had a stroke and is no longer able to care for them. They have been together since they were puppies and will only be adopted out as a pair. Bella is 4.5 yrs  old and weighs 8 lbs and Bailey is 4.5 years old and weighs 7 lbs. While they are not litter mates they are from the same breeder and have always lived together. They love to cuddle on your lap, and snuggle up at night. You will typically find them following you around waiting for some love. They use pee pads, but will also go outside. They love daily walks. A fenced in yard with no holes is recommended as they will run away for fun if given a chance! A home with no cats is a must as Bailey thinks it is a game to chase them. They have not been raised with children so we are looking for an adult only home. They are really sweet dogs, and will make someone happy. Bella is the lighter one, Bailey darker.
If you have any questions please write to kerri@yorkiesinc.com If interested in adopting please submit an application.


Lucy is a 12 year old female Shih Tzu mix who weighs 13 lbs. Lucy is a sweet little girl who is looking for a loving forever home. While we do not have any past history on Lucy it is obvious she has had a rough life. A few of  her teeth are broken we suspect from chewing on a metal crate and she at one time had something embedded around her back which left a cut that is healing nicely. With all this Lucy still loves people and never stops wagging her tail while you pat her. She has some vision and hearing loss but that does not stop her from loving life and wanting to be part of the group. She enjoys being on the couch with you getting patted and exploring a fenced in yard. She is house trained as long as you take her out a few times a day or she will use a pee pad. Lucy went to the vets and they feel she is overall in very good health, blood work was perfect. She is going on an antibiotic for her eyes and artificial tears a couple times a day and will go back in for a recheck in a couple weeks. She is updated on vaccines, but will need a dental to remove the broken teeth before she is ready for her new home. If you have any questions about Lucy please write to kerri@yorkiesinc.com If interested in being Lucy's new loving forever home please fill out an application.



Sandy is a very pretty 17 month old female Yorkie who weighs around 5 lbs. Her owner could no longer care for her, her sister Mandy or their father Brody so they are now looking for new homes. Sandy is very outgoing and playful. She is always trying to get the other dogs in the house to play with her. She would love her sister or father to be adopted with her or a home with another small playful dog. Sandy would like her new person to be home more than not as she loves being around people. She will need some work with walking on a leash but expect her to catch on quickly. She does well using a pee pad and will go outside if taken out in a fenced in yard. If you have any questions please email kerri@yorkiesinc.com or if interested in being considered to adopt please fill out an application. Thank you


Mandy is a beautiful 17 month old female Yorkie who weighs around 5 lbs . She is an owner surrender who is now looking for a new loving forever home. Mandy is very sweet and loving, but needs time to warm up as she can be shy when first  meeting someone. Once she knows you, she loves giving the sweetest kisses, cuddling and also playing and running around like a silly little girl. Mandy came in with her sister Sandy and her father Brody.  Mandy would love to be adopted with one of them as she often looks to them for reassurance and as a playmate, but does not have to be. She would also do best with someone home more than not. She will need work with leash walking but does enjoy exploring the fenced in back yard. She is house trained with a pee pad but will need reinforcement in her new home. If you have any questions please write to kerri@yorkiesinc.com If interested in adopting please fill out an application.


Lola & Livy


Meet Lola & Livy two 5yo female Yorkies that are litters mates and recently retired by the breeder, These two 6lb darling girls have always been together and do very well as a pair...we hate to break them up now! We find them snuggling in a bed and romping and exploring together often. These two girls are sweet and easy pups. They will need a bit of reinforcement on house training if not contained to an area. Both are healthy and fully vetted including spay, dental, micro chip, heartworm and Lyme tested and all vaccines. Lola and Livy are ready for their new home. If interested in adopting please submit an adoption application. Any questions please email Cathie@Yorkiesinc.com
3/14: Lola & Livy are pee pad trained and will also go outside if the weather is mild. Livy loves to play with other playful pups. Lola is more low key. Both love being close to the fireplace Livy can watch it for hours. Both love human attention as well. What can we say these two are perfect pups!!


Whoopi is an adorable female Yorkie who weighs almost 8 lbs and will be turning 7 in Sept. She has a bubbly personality and loves to give kisses. Whoopi is looking for a new family due to unforeseen changes that caused her current family to no longer have the time for Whoopi that she deserved. Due to this we are looking for a home where her new family will be home to give her the love and attention she deserves and loves. She is very friendly and loves being on the couch with you and sleeping in your bed at night.  She likes other small dogs, but would be fine as an only. She will need some reinforcement with house training. She was house trained but that took a back seat, however so far she is doing pretty well in her foster home when taken out on a regular basis. She has been fully vetted and is ready for her new home. If interested please fill out an application. If you have any questions please write to kerri@yorkiesinc.com 


Timi is an adorable 6 month old male full bred Yorkie who weighs about 3lbs. He was surrendered to us from his breeder because he was  small and not acting right,...showing possible signs of Liver shunt. We took him in and immediately put him on a low protein diet and head a Bile Acids test done. The results seemed off but not conclusive for Liver shunt so we will be retesting him in the next couple weeks. Since with us he has shown now signs what so ever and has actually gained some weight and is enjoying playing with the other puppies. We are continuing his diet until we can retest him. If you are interested in Timi when he is ready please submit an adoption application. Any questions please email Cathie@yorkiesinc.com We will be looking for a home with another small dog or two to play with.



TT is a beautiful two year old female Yorkie who weighs almost 4 lbs. TT was going to be a show dog but she is too small and very shy when first meeting someone. TT loves to play with other small dogs her size and therefore we want her new home to have another small dog as a playmate. Once comfortable TT has a very outgoing personality loving to give tons of big kisses, playing with toys and other dogs, running around and also cuddling on the couch when she is done. TT is pretty well pee pad trained and will go outside if taken however she will most likely need some reinforcement in her new home. TT loves running in a fenced yard and will need some work walking on a leash. TT loves to ride in the car and readily jumps in a dog bag with her foster siblings to go.  If you would like to be considered for TT please submit an application.  Any questions please write to kerri@yorkiesinc.com


Brody is a handsome 2.5 year old male Yorkie who weighs 5 lbs. Due to needing to move and a new job Brody's previous owner is no longer able to give Brody the life he deserves so she has asked Yorkies Inc to help find him and his daughters new forever homes. Brody is a great little dog who loves to play with other dogs, cuddle on the couch and give gentle kisses. Brody has been fully vetted and while there we had an x-ray  taken of his front right leg because he holds it up at times. The x-ray showed an old break in his leg that did not heal
correctly. While this does not stop him from running, playing and jumping up on the couch we will be taking him to an orthopedic specialist to see if anything can be done at this late date. Brody is doing well using a pee pad but will need reinforcement in his new home. He also will need work walking on a leash. We would like Brody to either be adopted with one of his daughters or into a home with another small dog as he enjoys playing If you have any questions about Brody please write to kerri@yorkiesinc.com If interested in adopting Brody please fill out an application.



Georgie is a handsome sweet male Yorkie who is around 6 years old and weighs around 5lbs. Georgie was found as a stray and his owners never came to claim him. Due to how thin he was and the condition of his hair he had to have been lost for awhile, but now he has gained weight and his coat is looking great. He is a funny little guy with quite a personality. He gets along well with other dogs, but he really loves being around people. He gives the sweetest kisses and is always ready for a belly rub! He walks well on a leash and loves going out in the car. When he sees his harness and leash his tail never stops wagging.  Georgie enjoys playing toys with my niece, and would enjoy children visiting but due to his small size we wont be placing him in a home with small children. He loves being with people and is very happy being near by, even more if he is on your lap. If you have any questions about Georgie you can write to kerri@yorkiesinc.com If you would like to be considered to adopt Georgie please submit an adoption application. Thank you.



This is Sweetpea a 6yo aprox 12lb spayed female Yorkie. Sweetpea is well trained and loving. Her person has had life changes that means no time for Sweetpea. She has been well cared for and is fully vetted and healthy. She is trained to use a pee pad but also enjoys leash walks. Sweetpea has passed her Good Citizenship tests and is well behaved. She loves children and would do great in a home with kids just not very young ones as she was not raised with them. Kids 6 or older who have been raised with dogs would be fine. She would love a fenced yard to explore, but is basically house dog. She does fine with other dogs and has lived with her littermate Bruiser for part of her life. She could be placed with him or my herself or with another dog. If interested in adopting Sweetpea please submit an adoption application. Any questions please email Cathie@yorkiesinc.com


Meet Bruiser a 6 yo 12lb neutered male Yorkie who is lovable and well trained and in need of a new home. His person had had to go into assisted living and can no longer care for Bruiser.

He loves being a lap dog but he's also friendly and likes to play. He has lived with Sweetpea his litter mate for part of his life, he could be placed with her, but he has also lived as an only and could be placed as an only.

We just took in this little 12 week old female Yorkie pup with a serious condition known as "megacolon" She is unable to eliminate waste on her own right now. "Jenna" was admitted for testing and to see if they can determine what is going on and try to get her little body to start working properly. Please keep her in your prayers and consider becoming a "Friend to Jenna" to help with her expenses. We will update her as soon as we have more information. Thank you
Update 1/12/14: Jenna is home on medical management hoping that this will either allow her colon to start working properly and eventually wean her off the meds OR that if this is a genetic problem that this protocol will work and then she can remain on it for life. It's really still to soon to know anything but we are crossing our fingers and praying. If this does not work we will have to look at surgery to remove part of her colon. To date her expenses are $1,521.00.
3/15/15: Jenna is now 5 months old and she has gone through a few diets, meds and tests to get to where we are today. She is doing very well and we seem to finally have her colon problems behind us. We will be scheduling her spay and finish up with her vaccines in the next few weeks at and while under anesthesia we will get another xray or ultrasound down to confirm she has healed. We will be looking for a home for her with another small dog to play with and no small children.

 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.
