Our Available Pups...
A note about
our adoption donations...
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?"
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.
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
Update 2/1/17 : Libby is now back
at her foster mom's home doing well and recovering nicely from her femoral head
osteotomy or FHO surgery.
2/16/17: Libby is ready for adoption!! She has had her
surgery and did great! She is a loving, sweet pup who loves to
play with other dogs and would love a fenced yard to run in!
She is completely house trained and is also leash and crate
trained....though she can be trusted without a crate. If
interested please submit an adoption 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 or dogs over 6-7lbs. 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
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
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

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!
8/28/16: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 firstname.lastname@example.org

For Pam Lathrop & her pup "Chloe" Merry Christmas! ~ from Jill

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 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
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
$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
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.
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
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.
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
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
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
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.
