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!

Theodore

Picture coming soon

Theodore is male Yorkie Poo (Yorkie Poodle mix) who just turned 9yo and weighs about 19lbs. He's got TV dog good looks and has some very cute manners. He'll never put his feet up on counters but he will make himself at home on the sofa! He was surrendered due to divorce and schedule change that left him alone just too long. He is up to date on all vaccines and healthy. He is completely house trained which is almost unheard of with the Yorkie breed :) He is a sweet pup who loves to snuggle and sleep in bed with you. He does well with other dogs but he has never seen a cat. Theo needs a fenced yard as he is use to being able to run and play. He's pretty much a homebody. He'd be great for someone who works from home or is retired. Other friendly pups his size would be fine. If interested in this more robust guy please submit an adoption application.

Prince



Prince is a 12 year old Maltese (DOB 10-19-04) who is approximately 10 pounds and is searching for a new home due to an illness in his owners family. He is UTD on all vaccines, is a healthy little guy & had a full dental procedure in September 2016. He has been in boarding frequently and likes other small dogs. Can be fearful of large dogs, cats and small children. So far Prince shows that he is house trained and good with many commands. He enjoys being by your side! He would love an owner to be home to spend lots of time with him during his golden years. If interested in adopting please submit an adoption application.
 

Theo



Help Needed! We were contacted by the MSPCA about a 1 year old Yorkie Mix who was hit by a car and was suffering with two broken pelvic bones. The poor little guy is in a lot of pain and needs immediate surgery. Of course Yorkies Inc said we would take him and plans were made to transfer him to tufts. While setting up plans to pick up Theo we were sent a picture of him, and while we do not see a whole lot of Yorkie we couldn't turn our backs on a pup that needed us and we hope all our Yorkies Inc friends will do the same! Please consider making a donation to help cover Theo's expensive vetting bills. We have received an estimate of $5000, with it possibly being more once they begin surgery. Please keep Theo in your thoughts for a smooth successful surgery.

Update 3/19/2017: Theo has had his surgery and the surgeon felt that it went very well. He is now in foster care getting all the love and attention he needs while he recovers. Please continue to keep him in your thoughts for a speedy and successful recovery. Thank you!

3/26/17 Update: Theo went to Tufts for a recheck and they feel he is doing very well. He now just needs to begin to put more pressure on his leg. Theo will also need some work on socialization to get over him being worried about strange noises, people and situations. We feel this is probably due to his trauma of being hit by a car and then being moved a few times until he was able to settle into his foster home to recover. He is very bonded with his foster family but takes time to warm up to new people which is to be expected with all he has been through. If interested in being considered for Theo please submit an application at www.yorkiesinc.com 

4/24/17 Update: Theo continues to do well and is putting more weight on his leg everyday. He still has a fracture in one hip that is healing but we are very pleased with his progress. He has begun to play with toys and is always wagging his tail. Theo's foster family continues to socialize him, especially now that he can go outside and take some walks.

Peyton



Peyton is an 8yo 6lbs female Yorkie who is in need of a new home. She is healthy but does have some vision issues due to cataracts. We will be taking her to see a specialist in the hopes we can have them surgically repaired. This little girl is a love, and is such an easy pup. If interested in adopting please submit an application. We will be updating her shortly once we know more about her eyes.
Update 4/26/17: Peyton was seen by Tufts Ophthalmology Dept on Monday for her cataracts.  It was determined that they are mature and she has virtually no vision. But she is scheduled to have further testing to see if she is a candidate for corrective surgery. She will be admitted on Monday for blood work and an ultrasound on her eyes to be sure retina's are healthy if all goes well her surgery will be done on Tuesday! This surgery is expensive but it will restore her sight! Our estimate for the bilateral cataract surgery is aprox$5000. Please consider making a donation to help this sweet little one see again! All friends will be listed. Thank you!

Update 5/4: Sadly, after pre-op testing it was determine that Peyton is not a candidate for cataract surgery. Her retinas are not working properly so even with surgery she would remain blind. It was further determined that she likely has PRA (progressive retinal atrophy) a congenital issue and she was likely blind prior to the cataracts formed. We wish we had better news; we are heartbroken that we will not be able to restore her sight. But, we are thankful for her wonderful spirit and that her overall health is great! We are also thankful for the wonderful support she received. Thank you all who donated! We have received enough funding to cover all the costs of the specialist appointments and testing! Thank you!

LuLu



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.

Update 4/24/17: Lulu is finally ready for her new home. She was spayed and had a dental last week. If interested in being considered for Lulu please submit an application. Please note due to her small size and personality we will not be putting her in a home with children or larger dogs. Thank you.

Tinsel



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.

2/21/17 Tinsel Update: While being groomed a large lump was discovered on Tinsel near his tail. We immediately brought Tinsel to the vets and it was determined that Tinsel had a perineal hernia. Due to how large and fast the hernia appeared and the complications that can occur Tinsel was scheduled for surgery as soon as possible at Tufts.
 
2/24/17 Tinsel had his hernia surgery at Tufts and is recovering nicely in his foster home. His surgeon felt that the surgery went smoothly and that it was a success. Please consider making a donation to help with this unexpected medical expense. All friends of Tinsel will be listed below. Thank you!

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.
