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!



This is Stella, she is a 7yo  7lb female Yorkie who was recently retired by her breeder. She sought us out to find the perfect home for this sweet little girl. Stella is shy at first but warmed up in just a day or so. She is calm and quiet and loves being close to you. Belly rubs are one of her favorite things! She'll jump up on the chair or couch to lay next to you, but is never a bother. She does well with the other pups in her foster home with no issues. So small calm dogs her size would be fine but she could easily go as an only.  She is great at using a pee pad which makes it nice to not have to take her out in inclement weather. But she will also "go" outside...a fenced in yard is another of her favorites during nice weather! She loves her baby carrots as a snack and its a great way to reward her! She is not use to a leash so that would need a bit of time to get use to.  She was just completely vetted and is ready for her new home. If interested in the sweetie please submit an application. Any questions email Cathie@yorkiesinc.com



Meet KiKi a 5yo female yorkie who is friendly and and sweet! She was just retired by her breeder who wanted to find the ideal home for this wonderful gal! She weighs aprox 10lbs right now but is pretty chunky after her last litter and should weigh more like 7.5lbs. We are working on getting her weight down while she is her with us but she is ready for a new home if family can continue to work on this. She loves attention and lap time but is also active and fun! She would do well in a family situation with kids but will also be just as at home with a retired person. An extended family might be ideal, or a senior home where grandkids visit. She also does well with other dogs as she does well interacting with them. She is healthy, spayed up to date on vaccines and is micro chipped. She also just had a dental cleaning...she lost a few teeth but that hasn't stopped her at all and he breath and kisses are so much better now! Any questions email Cathie@yorkiesinc.com If interested in adopting Kiki please submit an application.



Ru is an adorable, smart 12 week old mixed breed, male puppy. He weighs about 1.7lb. His exact breed is unknown but we believe his mother was a Shih Tzu and dad was possibly Chihuahua. Ru is the type of pup that will be extremely loyal, loving and with the right training, very well-behaved. He learned to sit & come in just 2 days and is in the process of learning to use a puppy pad, turn in a circle and go to his bed. He is motivated by food which makes training much easier. This tiny sweetheart is full of energy, loves to play, explore and enjoys belly rubs. He is expected to stay small in size but has more than enough heart to make up for it. Ru is a charismatic, delightful pup that is sure to bring joy. Because of his demure size we will not be placing him in a home with young children or larger pets. He is currently being fostered with a 3.5lb pup and would do best in a similar situation. Ru will be fully vetted and neutered and micro chipped. If interested in adopting Ru please submit an adoption application.


UPDATE 1/4/2015: Pollyanna is all grown up and has had her surgery and the eye was removed. She is now pain free and ready for adoption! She is a spirited 4.5lbs little girl with a wonderful out look! She has set no limitations on herself and we haven't either. She can jump up on the sofa and has great agility! She would do well with another playful pup or might even be ok as an only with someone who is home to give her the attention she has been use to. Please do think this little one is frail or needy...she is not by any means! She is Yorkie through and through. She minds well and does great with the puppy pads. Right now she isn't a fan of being outside. She will also need some work with leash training but she is a super smarty pants and we have no doubt she'll master whatever challenge is set for her. If interested in adopting Polly Please submit an adoption application.

   This is little Pollyanna! She is just a tiny little thing not even one pound when she arrived in June! 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.
Update: 10/29: Pollyannas surgery is scheduled for Nov 7th.

11/7/2014: Pollyanna had her surgery today and did very well. She is a bit swollen and a little out of sorts tonight but that is to be expected. She will need to have crate rest for the next week....then she can return pain free to her normal routine
1/4/2015: Pollyanna has had her surgery and the eye was removed. She is now pain free and ready for adoption! She is a spirited 5lbs little girl with a wonderful out look! She has set no limitations on herself and we haven't either. She can jump up on the sofa and has great agility! She would do well with another playful pup or might even be ok as an only with someone who is home to give her the attention she has been use to. Please do think this little one is frail or needy...she is not by any means! She is Yorkie through and through. She minds well and does great with the puppy pads. Right now she isn't a fan of being outside. She will also need some work with leash training but she is a super smarty pants and we have no doubt she'll master whatever challenge is set for her.

Maurice is a handsome 6 month old male Yorkie who weighs around 8 lbs. He really is a sweet little guy.  He loves to held and will hug into you, but he also is a typical puppy, very curious playing with toys and the other dogs. Maurice loves playing with other small dogs and would do best in a home with another small dog to play with. His whole body shakes with excitement when he sees another dog to play with and will do whatever he can in order to get them to play. He is learning how to sit and give a paw. Maurice is doing well with the house training if taken out consistently and if left alone has access to a pee pad. He is doing well peeing outside but will need reinforcement in his new home which is to be expected still being so young. He is use to a fenced in yard and has been practicing walking on the leash, but will need to continue leash walking in his new home. He has been fully vetted, is in good health and ready for his new home. If you would like to be considered to adopt please fill out an application. Any questions please write to kerri@yorkiesinc.com



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.


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 7lbs 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. 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, with bone loss on his bottom jaw, most likely due to no prior dental care, but that has not stopped him from being able to eat, which he loves to do and could actually loose a couple of pounds.  Louie loves to be with people, always looking to be patted and if you stop he lets you know that he wants more. Louie enjoys being outside and would love a fenced in yard to roam around in and sun bathe. However, he does like to look for any way to escape so he could never be outside without a watchful eye and a very secured fenced yard. He also enjoys going for walks. Louie gets along well with the other dogs in the house and once in awhile you can find him in the same bed, but he has no interest in playing with them  He does need work on house training and feel that might have been the reason he was turned in. While Louie has made good progress with the house training we are not sure if he will ever be fully house trained, but his loving personality by far makes up for this. 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. 


TT is a 3 year old female Yorkie who weighs 4 lbs. TT was going to be a show dog but she was too small and timid 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, her size, for TT to play with and bring her out of her shell. Once comfortable TT has a more outgoing personality and will give kisses, play with toys and the other dogs, run in the yard and want to be held. 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. Due to this we are looking for a home with no children as their fast movement and activity would be too much for TT.  TT is pretty well pee pad trained and her new home should be willing to use them as well. She will go when outside however, she prefers to use the pee pad and often uses it after being out. TT loves running in a fenced yard and would like her new home to have a secured yard. She will need further work walking on a leash, as this still makes her nervous. TT loves to ride in the car and readily jumps in a dog bag with her foster siblings to go. If you live in New England and would like to be considered for TT please submit an application.  Any questions please write to kerri@yorkiesinc.com

 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.
