Looking for a new Home...


Welcome, I hope you enjoy seeing these wonderful little dogs that are looking for a good home. If you find a listing that you are interested in, please fill out a "Rescue Home Application" and press send.

To rescue a Yorkie, a minimum donation to Yorkshire Terrier National Rescue is required based upon on the age and condition of the dog and medical expenses incurred beginning at $150) plus a $25 fee for Microchipping. Each dog is Microchipped before going to it's new home. Read about our Microchip Policy here.

Most Yorkies are adopted within their home states. If you are interested in a Yorkie that is not in your home state, you may still send an inquiry, however, every effort is first made to place the dogs locally, however in some circumstances we do allow the adopted families to come pick the dogs from their foster home.

We tend to have more people willing to rescue our Yorkies than we have dogs available. While this may mean that you may have to wait a considerable amount of time before a rescue becomes available, it is the best possible situation for our Yorkies needing new "forever" homes.

n the web page. So just because you don't see your state on the page, does not mean there isn't a dog for you. You must fill out the form to be put on the waiting list, and someone in your area will contact you.

If you have a Yorkie needing a rescue, please FILL OUT THE FORM listed below.
Thank you

Lulu
Adoption donation is $850


Lulu

March 2015
Lulu is a 7 month old female yorkie. She weighs 7 lbs. and has been through a rough patch in her short life. This little girl was running down the steps of her home when she looked back to see behind her. She took a terrible spill and ended up with a severely broken front left leg. The leg could not be saved and had to be removed. Lulu has recovered completely at this time and you would never know she is anything but a normal little dog.

Unfortunately, her mom is now sick and had to give her up to our rescue. She is going to be spayed shortly and will be ready to go to her new home. She is learning how to potty outside. She is up to date on her vaccinations, heartworm and fecal tested and microchipped. As a young puppy, her new family must be willing to teach her good dog manners and commit to caring for her for the many years of her life. Lulu should have a two or four legged companion to play and romp with her. Adoption donation is $850, includes Microchip.

Remy
Adoption donation is $350


Remy

February 2015
Remy is a 4 pound male Yorkie that is about 7 years old. We have been evaluating him in foster care and think heís about ready for his new home. Remy would do well in a home with other small dogs, or a small cat if they'll accept him. If there are no other pets, the owner would need to spend a substantial amount of time with him, either at home, or by taking Remy along. He travels well, and he walks well on a leash. I believe he is potty-trained, only one accident. He has a very passive manner, and he's extremely timid. He is petite so he will not go to a home with children. Remy needs to gain a little weight and will need time to settle in to feel comfortable.

He is neutered, Up to date on his vaccinations and microchipped. Adoption donation is $350, includes Microchip.

Snoot

February 2015
Check out Snoot! Sheís a retired breeding dog. She was surrendered to the rescue after her last litter was delivered by C-section.

She is overweight from not getting enough exercise, but has lost a couple of pounds at her foster momís house. Snoot is 8 years old and weighs 5.7 lbs. now, down from 7.6. She should lose a little more weight though. She is fully vaccinated, Heartworm and fecal tested as well as microchipped. Snoot should not go to a home with small children as she is still learning social skills. She does well with other dogs.

Please fill out an adoption application now. Adoption donatio is $ 450.00 includes microchip and her medical expenses.

Bean
Adoption donation is $300


Bean

Update: October 2014-
Bean has been in his foster home for 19 months. He has overcome his fear of this home and is a happy dog here. However, he is still quite fearful of strangers. A recent trip to the Vet for updating his vaccines was a traumatic experience for him. Bean is being fostered in Spring Valley, near San Diego. Due to his fearful nature, if you are interested in Bean, foster mom is requesting that you live in the area and be available for frequent visits to allow Bean to get to know you before adoption and leaving this home for a new one.

March 2013. I would like to introuduce myself. My name is BEAN. I am 2yrs and 9 mos old and weigh 5 pounds. For reasons I do not understand, I was surrendered to a shelter and was rescued by these wonderful people. I do have some issues such as not liking cats at all, children or large dogs.

I love taking walks. I love to sleep and snuggle under the covers of my foster mom's bed and I love to be carried around and be spoiled. I must be an only dog and I will love you forever. My foster mom is working on my issues and is teaching me patience.

I am neutered, have had all my vaccinations and my teeth are pretty good. If you think that we could be a "furever" family, please put my name on the application "Bean" and I will be your faithful pal.

My adoption donation is $300 and that includes the microchip.

Snuggles
Adoption donation is $400


Snuggles

January 2015

Meet Snuggles. Her daddy was a Yorkie and her momma was a Shih Tzu. She is 7 years old and really lives up to her name. Snuggles is about 10 lbs. and is microchipped, fully vaccinated, heartworm and fecal tested. She just had her teeth cleaned and has a beautiful coat of fluffy hair. Snuggles rides really well in the car and is a quiet, mellow companion. We have never heard her bark! She gets very excited at dinner time and loves to go outside. She is nervous about her new surroundings but gets along well with the other dogs in the household. She needs help with her housebreaking Ė but that could just be part of getting to know the new house and routine. She only lived in one other home her whole life. She would probably be a happy only dog to a retired or stay at home person, but she would also do well with a dog buddy. Since this little girl is the shy, submissive type, she should only go to a home with older children that can respect her need for a quiet peaceful home.

Please make Snuggles part of your new years resolution for 2015 and beyond. Adoption donation $400 includes microchip.

Toby
Adoption donation is $350


Toby (North California)

March 2015
This is Toby. A beautiful boy of 6 years old that is a mix of Yorkie and most likely Cairn or Norfolk terrier. Poor Toby lost his eyesight rapidly last October. He has been diagnosed with SARD: Sudden Acquired Retinal Degeneration. Being blind hasnít dampened his enthusiasm for life nor his ability to give affection. Heís a smart boy and has mastered the doggie door in no time and can even navigate the front steps, both up and down to the front lawn. He will need a quiet, secure home where he can relax in the yard or on the couch. At 20 lbs., he is a bit large for a lap dog, but donít tell him that. Snuggling close is what he likes best.

Toby is microchipped, vaccinated and ready for a forever home where he can be a loyal and delightful member of your family. Adoption donation $350 includes microchip.

Franklin
Adoption donation is $550


Franklin

January 2014
Franklin is a special needs dog with a great attitude and inspiring story. This Yorkie boy was found as a stray, dragging his back end with sores on his feet, hocks and bottom. He appeared to have lived without the use of his rear legs for quite some time. The shelter staff contacted YTNR because Franklin had such a good personality, they believed he was a good candidate for a second chance.

Franklin was examined and X rayed. It was discovered that this sweet little dog had been shot and has a BB lodged in his spinal cord. Surgery to remove the BB was ruled out and a custom made wheel cart was ordered. Franklin has learned to use his wheel cart quickly. His abrasions have almost healed and he is ready to find his very own forever family.

His new family must be willing to devote time to Franklins continued care. He will never be able to walk on his own. He can not be left alone in his cart without supervision. Franklin must wear a Drag Bag when he isn't in his wheel cart to prevent the sores and abrasions from coming back. Franklin also wears diapers since his ability to control his bowels and bladder have also been affected. In return for this extra care, Franklin will reward you with unconditional love and a lifetime of good days and inspiration.

He is about 2 years old, weighs 11. 6 pounds. He is neutered, microchipped, heartworm and parasite tested as well as up to date on all his vaccinations. If you are committed to being there for Franklin, day to day for the rest of his life, please fill out an adoption application now. Adoption donation $550.00 Includes microchip.

Rocky
Adoption donation is $475


Rocky

March 2015
Rocky is looking for an experienced Yorkie owner to love and care for him. He is a six year old male Yorkie who has some special needs. Rocky weighs 8 pounds. He has been diagnosed with MVD, which is a chronic condition where the liver is unable to process normal amounts of protein. Dogs with MVD are treated by a lifelong special diet and medication. These dogs usually do very well with this medical management and are able to live into old age. Otherwise, Rocky is healthy, neutered, UTD with all of his shots and micro-chipped. His teeth have just been cleaned and he is very tolerant of having his teeth brushed.

Rocky came into rescue after his owner could no longer keep him and gave him to a man who kept him in a cage in his garage. Rocky has gotten past his trauma now and just wants a family to give him the love and attention he deserves. He is a wonderful cuddler and canít wait to jump into his foster parentís bed and slip under the covers where he stays quietly all night. He loves to go for long walks and rides well in the car, looking out of the window to watch the world go by. Rocky is friendly to people he meets but is a bit afraid of big dogs. He accompanies his foster mom to the pet store and gets excited to check out all of the smells and new sights. Rocky is housebroken and will go to the door to ask to go out or will use a potty pad. He is not a big barker but will alert you to someone approaching the door.

Rocky will do best in a family with no children and no more than one other small dog since he wants all of the attention for himself. We are looking for someone who is home full or part-time. If Rocky sounds like your boy, please fill out an application with his name on it.

Adoption Donation is $475.00, Includes Micro chip.

Nikkie
Adoption donation is $400


Nikkie

August 2013
Meet Nikkie! What a little character he is. Nikkie is 6 years young, UTD on his shots. He plays like a puppy, especially at tug-o-war! If youíre looking for an affectionate fellow, look no further. Nikkie loves to be held and will fall asleep in your arms. Heíll also sleep on your feet when youíre watching TV! Nikkie was an owner surrender where he was injured by being kicked. His back legs are not as strong, so he walks and runs with a little wobble. He will need a home with a fenced yard to play in and no small children.

He prefers woman, so if Nikkie is the one for you add his name to your application. Adoption Donation $400 includes microchip.

Keamea
Adoption donation is $450


Kamea

November 2013
My name is Kamea and I am nine years old, and proud father of Molly and Jed. I weigh 7.6 pounds and handsome I think you will agree. My foster family thinks that I am a very smart boy and you will find that I can run faster and play harder than the pups that are much younger than me. I like to have an extra blanket in my bed so I can carry it around with me from place to place when I decide to sit closer to you. But, I am set in my ways, for instance, I will sit at the back door and bark until you let me in and will hit my food bowl or nudge it to you if I want to eat.

My foster dad does not want me to leave, but I need a forever home of my own. You will not be disappointed if you decide you want me to live with you. Donít forget to add my name to your application if I am the guy for you. Adoption Donation $450 includes microchip.

Jesse & Kirby
Adoption donation is $300 each


Jesse Kirby

January 2015
We are two little sweethearts who came to Rescue when our human mommy died. We are 5.5 year old litter mates, weigh about 7 lbs each, and are little troopers. We are social, loving, and playful. We are also great at exploring Ė so we need a securely fenced yard of our own!

We usually snuggle up together, but when night time falls, we like to snuggle up with our foster mommy. Sometimes a teddy bear works too. We love to sleep in, and to have the occasional breakfast in bed. We enjoy spending time with other doggies, but we do chase cats Ė or more precise, tiptoe around and around them, and then bark if they donít want to join the game. Other times we ignore them, but probably best if we donít have one of our own.

We are working on potty training - an eagle eye and occasional belly bands do it for now. We also have an amazing trick weíll show you: wee-wee hand-stands! It is oh so cute Ö we could have YouTube stardom in our future.

If youíd like two mischievous little brothers to worm their way into your heart, warm your lap, and love you forever, please fill out our application. We HAVE to be adopted together and be loved forever, our little hearts cannot handle another heartbreak. By the way, few toys and small balls, a teddy bear, and soft blankets and beds will also help win us over. Adoption Donationis $300 each, includes Microchips.
