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.

 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!



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

Update 8/2: Willie has had his surgery and did very well! He is ready to be placed in his forever home! Thank you for all the support, prayers and well wishes!!

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!

Update 8/18/14:  Polly continues to do well and is growing like a weed! She's almost 2lbs at this point and has started with vaccines and wormings. Unfortunately while her eye pressure has come down somewhat, her prognosis is still the same and the eye will need to be removed when she's old enough. She is otherwise a perfectly, healthy, playful and loving life! Her eye drops and vet visit expenses continue to mount and surgery for eye removal is quoted at 1800. We are still looking for help with donations. Thank you!

Update 9/30/14: Pollyanna is now 2.8lbs and is finished with her DHPP series. We will be waiting another couple weeks to give her rabies vaccine and we have scheduled surgery for later in October.

Rikki is a 6 year old female Yorkie who weighs around 9 lbs but could stand to loose a couple of pounds. Rikki is very sweet and loving. She gets along well
with other dogs. She will use a pee pad in a contained area, but will need reinforcement with house training in her new home. If interested in adopting
Rikki please submit an adoption application. Any questions please write to

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.


Tommy is an adorable 7 1/2 yo male pure bred Yorkie with a sweet  personality. He weighs aprox 5lbs. Tommy has been fully vetted and is ready for his new home.
Tommy is a sweetie who loves to be where you are whether on the couch or on the bed. He is doing well with house training if you take him out on a scheduled
basis. While he doesn't really play with other dogs he gets along with them very well and would be a great companion dog for another small dog. He is learning to
walk on a leash and enjoys being outside with you. If you are interested in adopting Tommy please submit an adoption application. Any questions please write to



Cuddy is a handsome  6 1/2 yo male pure bred Yorkie who weighs 5lbs. He has been completely vetted including  all vaccines, neuter and a dental cleaning and is
now ready for his new home. Cuddy is a total lap dog...if he sees a lap he is in it. He loves to be carried around and would probably love going out in a dog bag
around town. He comes running to greet you when you come home...if you are looking for a love bug Cuddy is your guy!  Cuddy will need to continue to work
on his house training, but he is getting better especially now that he has been neutered. If you are interested in adopting please consider submitting an
adoption application. Any questions please write to



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 12 1/2lbs and is 6yo. 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 his size, or 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

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!!


Fionna is a 6 yo female pure bred Yorkie who weighs about 6 1/2lbs. She has been completely vetted with all vaccines , spay and a dental cleaning and is healthy. She is a friendly happy girl who loves to play and cuddle. She is trained to go on a pee pee pad but is also doing well pottying outside. She would likely do well as an only or with another dog or two her size. She would do best with someone home more then not if expected to potty outside. If you are interested in adopting please consider submitting an adoption application now.


Chilin is a female Yorkie Mix who is approximately 10 months old and weighs 13 lbs. Chilin's owners failed her when she needed them the most. Instead of bringing Chilin to the vet when her front leg was injured they let her suffer in pain while the leg healed incorrectly. Those same owners then betrayed her and brought her to a shelter to be PTS because of her leg injury. When Yorkies Inc heard about Chilin we could not let that happen and we took her in. We were optimistic that we would be able to fix her leg like we have so many others, but sadly this is not the case. Due to the negligence of her former owners who did not take her to a vet in a timely manner her leg is now beyond repair. We consulted with three specialists hoping the leg could be repaired,  but all three stated the same thing...the elbow was shattered (we don't even want to think about how this happened) and the fracture being over a month old could not be repaired with promising results. All three stated that the best option would be to amputate the leg stating dogs get along great on three legs and Chilin would no longer have to worry about any pain or discomfort from the leg which she is already not using. While this was not the news we hoped for we are very lucky to have Chilin as part of Yorkies Inc and will do whatever is needed to make sure she is properly taken care of and never betrayed again. We don't know how anyone could look into her sweet brown eyes and turn their back on her. She has the most expressive face and just wants to be loved. Please consider making a donation and becoming a "Friend of Chilin" to help pay for her needed surgery. We have been quoted between $1800-$2000. by the orthopedic specialist.

TT is a beautiful two year old female Yorkie who weighs almost 4 lbs. TT was going to be a show dog but she was too small and too shy for the ring. TT loves to play with other small dogs her size and therefore we are looking for a home that has two other small playful dogs for TT to play with and bring her out of her shell. Once comfortable TT has a more outgoing personality loving to give kisses, playing with toys and other dogs, running around and also cuddling on the couch when she is
done. However, there will be an adjustment period before her new homes sees this side of her and at times she is still very shy and skittish in her foster home. 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.
9/12/14: Bobbie is ready to go to her new home! If interested please submit an adoption application.

 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.
