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.

Meet William or Willie as he is called! Willie is a sweet 9 month old male Yorkie who weighs almost 5 lbs. Willie was surrendered by his family due to him needing  leg/hip surgery. Willie is not able to put full weight on his back leg causing him to hop around. Willie is in pain and we will be getting him in for x rays this week to see what needs to be done to fix his leg. Please consider making a donation to Willie's vetting care as he is going to need expensive leg surgery estimating to cost around $3000. All friends will be listed below. Once we have more information we will post it. Please keep Willie in your prayers. Thank you!
Update 7/18: William's surgery is scheduled for July 29th! Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers

We have reached our goal with Willie! Thank you to all Willie's "Friends" for the generous support!

   This is little Pollyanna! She is just a tiny little thing not even one pound when she arrived! 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!

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 kerri@yorkiesinc.com If interested in being considered for the pair please submit an application.



Buttercup is a pretty 3 year old female Yorkie who weighs around 7 lbs. When first meeting someone Buttercup is shy but quickly warms up and loves attention.
She gets along well with other dogs in the house but has yet to play with them. She will need some work on house training and leash walking but expect her to
catch on quickly to both. Buttercup has been fully vetted and is ready for her new home. If you have any questions please write to kerri@yorkiesinc.com If
interested in being considered to adopt please submit an application.



Meet Louie! Louie is an adorable 6 year old male Yorkie with a great personality! He weighs 5 lbs 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 in. We were expecting to get in a sickly dog that needed a lot of medial care instead we got Louie! 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, most likely due to no prior dental care, but that has not stopped him from being able to eat (which he loves). Louie loves to be with people, always looking to be patted and loved. He enjoys being outside and would love a fenced in yard to roam around in and sun bathe. (Though he is much too small to be left alone!) He gets along well with the other dogs in the house, but as of right now he is not interacting much with them. He does need work on house training and feel that might have been one of the reasons he was turned in. However, since we have had him neutered he is already doing better, but he will need further work. Louie is ready and looking for his new forever home! If you have any questions please write to kerri@yorkiesinc.com If you are interested in being considered for Louie please submit an application.




Nano is looking for a forever home! Nano is a pure bred male Yorkie who weighs 13 1/2lbs and will be turning 6yo in a couple in July. He is healthy up to date on vaccines and neutered. He is good with kids and with other dogs and would likely do best in a home where someone is home more then not. He is house trained but like most yorkies needs to be taken out every 4 hours or so. Nano is crate trained and use to a fenced yard. He does well on a leash without pulling.  He loves toys and chews treats but is not a destructive dog. He can be a bolter, and gets excited, so a fenced yard would work best. He is an active Yorkie so we are looking for a home where he can safely play with another dog or dogs, kids or both! He is use to doggie day care so he'd also be fine in that setting. If interested in Nano please submit an adoption application on line at our website www.YorkiesInc.com  Any question please email Cathie@yorkiesinc.com


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
UPDATE:4/30/14: Daniel is doing remarkably well. He is starting to use the leg more and more and at his recheck Dr Kochin was very pleased with the outcome and his progress so far. He has one more recheck in 4 weeks and then he should be ready for adoption! We have not come close to his donations to what his surgery has cost us so please consider a small donation. Thanks
5/23/2014: Daniel had his final re-check with the surgeon on Thursday and Dr Kochin is very happy with his progress! He said we should continue to see steady improvement over the next 6 months as he grows stronger. Daniel is completely vetted and is now 6 months old. He weighs about 4lbs and should weigh maybe 6lbs full grown. He plays well with other pups his size and he's doing great with house training. He will use a pee pad as long as it's in close proximity and will also go outside. Daniel is now ready for adoption! If interested in adopting please submit an adoption application. Any questions please email Cathie@yorkiesinc.com

6/19/2014: Daniel is now 7 months old weighs just 4 lbs. He has recovered nicely and continues to improve each day. he is now ready for his forever home!! He loves to play with other dogs his size and his fully house trained to a pee pad if contained to an area or to go outside if taken regularly.

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!!



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



This sweet little girl is Bobbie, a 5lbs, 5yo bundle of fun. She loves everyone and everything, hasn't meant a stranger yet! Sadly, this little one has a severe luxating patella that causes her to hold her rear leg up all the time. This doesn't stop her from doing anything she wants to do including doing stairs and getting on a favorite spot on the sofa. But we have X-rayed her and had her seen by our orthopedic specialist and she is a very good candidate to have this repaired and do well. She is otherwise completely healthy an once she is ready for adoption will make a wonderful little companion. She will be going in for the patella repair on May 9th the same day as Timi. We are in dire need of donations for all these surgeries these pups have needed. Please consider making a donation to one or more. Your name will be listed as a "Friend" to that pup!
UPDATE 5/13/2014: Bobbie had her surgery at all went very well! It was a bit trickier then originally thought. Once her knee was placed in the right position it was determined that the ligaments were too short to compensate. Dr Kochin performed a procedure that lengthened the ligaments around the knee. The result looks great and she is already touching her foot down. Because of this her recovery will be a bit longer to insure she doesn't do any damage to the knee while it heals in this new position. She is being penned for the next 8 weeks! She's not so happy about that but we are thrilled that in the end she will have a functioning leg!

6/18/14: Bobbie is almost ready to be placed in her new home.....we expect it to be within the next two weeks! This is one of Bobbie's favorite things to do...carry her baby around in her mouth! She loves toys! Bobbie does well with other dogs but could easily go as an only for someone who is home and wants a close companion. If interested in adopting please submit your adoption application now.

 Chito is looking for his forever home!  Chito is a Chihuahua mix who weighs 7lbs and is 4 yrs old.  He is healthy, up to date on vaccines and neutered. He loves to go for a walk and does well on a leash without pulling.  He loves to cuddle on the couch with you, gives sweet kisses, and rides well in the car. He is good with other small dogs if introduced properly.  He is afraid of larger dogs and will attack them out of fear.  He would likely do best as an only dog where someone is home more often than not.

 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.
