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

Brody

October 2014
Can’t you just see the wheels turning inside that little head of his? He’s a smart guy, little Brody. His mommy taught him to sit and stay. To lay down and come. Sadly, Brody couldn’t stay with that mom forever, so now he’s looking for a new forever home.

He is 15 months old. Neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. He weighs in at 8.5 lbs. and his foster mom says that this dog is “Perfect in every way.” If you would like to make Brody your own little gem of a pal, fill out an adoption application now.

Aidan
Adoption donation is $300


Aidan

October 2014
Such a sweet little boy Aidan is. He knows who his favorite person is and makes sure he remains as close as can be whenever possible. Snuggly at bedtime and on the lap on the sofa. He has learned that other family dogs can provide playtime and has learned to chase with the big boys.....round and round the back yard. Aidan isn't much of a barker but sometimes he wants your attention and signals a quick "ruff ruff" !

He was found running lost and in need of bath and groom. Pretty tangled his hair was chopped away. When it grows out and is groomed properly he is going to be very beautiful because his coat just gleams with silver highlights. He's had his shots and a good dental cleaning so that should make him a lot more comfortable. He is happy and vigorous, greatly appreciating his morning walk and dinnertimes have put some needed weight on him. He relishes that meal !.....and... perhaps any snacks you might have laying around.....

Aidan is approximately 6-7 years old and weighs 9.4 lbs. Please consider bringing him into your family and fill out an adoption application with his name on it. Adoption donation is $300.00 including microchip.

Tilly
Adoption donation is $300


Tilly

September 2014
Miss Tilly is a sweet and docile Yorkie that we suspect spent her years up to now breeding litter after litter of puppies in someone's back yard. She is 8 years old and 5.1 lbs. Once she outlived her 'usefulness' she was discarded at the Animal Shelter. The people at the shelter thought that she was much older than she is due to a complete lack of care: She was filthy and matted, her teeth were rotten her eyes were infected and she doesn't use one of her front legs.

After a good bath, a quick trim to remove the mats as well as a dental to get rid of the rotten teeth and her spay, she is recovering comfortably at her Foster moms house. Her loving personality is beginning to show through, something those Backyard Breeders never knew about her. Tilly is getting medicine for her eyes and they are clearing up nicely. She will see a Vet soon about that front leg - apparently an old injury that was not cared for properly. We hope to be able to help her regain the use of it.

Tilly has many years of love and companionship to give to someone. She was never house broken, but has already learned about the potty pads and is doing well. She seems grateful to be out of her deplorable condition. Please give Tilly the life she deserved to have all along. Fill out an adoption application and name her as your new best friend. Her Adoption Donation is $300, Includes Microchip.

Scrappy
Adoption donation is $300


Scrappy

August 2014
Scrappy is a 2 old year with endless energy and enthusiasm for life, people and other playful pups. He greets everyone with great joy and is an equal opportunity playmate. For this reason he could use a high energy family with perhaps another four legged companion to run around with. He was saved at the last moment by our rescue from a same day scheduled end at a shelter and shows his appreciation every day by his happy nature.

Scrappy loves his walks and playtime but he will also settle down and rest but you can be sure it will be right next to you. Companionship is very important to him. He loves his walks and looks forward to dinner each evening. His motto: "Life is wonderful" !

If you are interested in adopting Scrappy, fill out an adoption application and add his name to you app. Adoption Donation $300 includes microchip

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.

Jake
Adoption donation is $600


Jake

October 2014
Jakecame into rescue because his dad is serving our country and will soon be deployed to Afghanistan. Other circumstances came in to play and the best thing for Jake was to find him a new family. Jake is used to sleeping with his humans and going where they go. He has his own car seat to be able to look out the window on car rides and several outfits so that he is always dressed for whatever occasion he may attend. He has a birthday coming up on December 15th. He will be 6 years old. Jake has silky hair and is a good boy when he gets a bath. Little Jake weighs in at a small 5 lbs. He is good about letting you know when he has to do his business by dancing in front of you and then will happily run outside when you open the door. Jake doesn’t mind other dogs around, but he doesn’t play with them. He would rather play with his stuffed Piggy. Jake is microchipped, neutered, vaccinated, heartworm and fecal tested. He needs a forever home with a yard to run in and mom and dad that will love him as much as his first Dad did.

Adoption donation is $600.00, includes microchip .

Toby
Adoption donation is $500


Toby

May 2014
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 hasn’t dampened his enthusiasm for life nor his ability to give affection. He’s 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 don’t 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 $500 includes microchip.

Winter
Adoption donation is $600


Winter

May 2014
This is Winter, he’s not really a Yorkie, but don’t tell him that. He romps and plays with all the other Yorkies as if he was one of the clan. He was found running the streets like a free spirit. That was fine for a while, but missing a cozy bed and regular meals was tiresome. A good Samaritan tried to find his rightful home, but with no collar or tag and no microchip he was pronounced an orphan. That’s when he came to live with the other foster Yorkies. Winter is a terrier mix that is pure white and pure fun. Playing with toys or dogs or people is his favorite past time. He would make a good family dog but should have a dog buddy of his size and activity level to keep him company when the human family has to be away. Winter is about 2 years old and weighs 10.2 pounds. Winter has been neutered, vaccinated, heartworm and fecal tested.

If you are interested in making him a part of the family, please fill out an application for adoption now. Adoption donation is $600.00 including microchip.

Lexi
Adoption donation is $850


Lexi

Update: October 2014 -
October 2014. Foster mom reports that Lexi is a joy to have around. She is a tiny little female that is well behaved and gets along with all dogs and loves everyone she meets.

March 2014
This is Lexi. A spunky, happy Yorkie mix. She is about 5 years old and weighs in at about 5 lbs. She was a lonely stray that couldn’t find her way back home. It’s probably a good thing, because it doesn’t appear that the folks back home were taking very good care of her. She has a scar on her back that can be covered by her hair. Someone had glued her ears and fur together and cut off her whiskers. She is a quiet and mild manner girl. She gets along good with other dogs. She is up to date on all her vaccinations and will be spayed and have a dental cleaning before she goes to her new home.

She will also be microchipped so that getting lost doesn’t mean she can’t get back home again. Please show this little girl some love and fill out an adoption application for her. Adoption donation is $850.00 including 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.

Ethel
Adoption donation is $450


Ethel

Otober 2014
Hi my name is Ethel, I am a curious girl and like exploring. I really like running around off leash but I walk well on a leash. I am smart but listen best with treats. I know how to sit and stay (even though I don’t always like to). I am learning from my foster brothers how to let people know that I have to go outside. So far so good. My foster parents think I am a sweetie. I follow them around the house and like to be close to them. Cats are new to me. I am trying to respectfully make friends with the cats in my foster home but they haven’t warmed up to me (they are cats after all). I get along just fine with the dogs that live here.

I am a bigger girl (more to love) I weigh 17 pounds and I am a mere 5 years old ( just a puppy). I really don’t like to be left alone. I get very anxious when the humans leave me and I will bark a lot. New people visiting make me anxious I will bark and approach them cautiously. It takes a while for me to calm down after these events. My foster family thinks I am getting better with new people and barking less at them.

So if you are looking for a good companion who is sweet as can be I am your girl. Oh, did I mention I am adorable and downright cute?

If I am the girl for you please fill out an adoption application make sure you put my name on it so they know you are interested in only me. Adoption Donation is $450 includes micro chip.

Gizmo
Adoption donation is $175


Gizmo

Otober 2014
Hi everyone. This is Gizmo. He is about 9 years old and weighs 8 pounds. He is potty-trained and faithfully goes outside. I will say that he is just the sweetest little guy. He is a good eater and enjoys playing in the back yard and going for short walks. He gets along well with everyone and accepts other dog. He is neutered, up to date on all his shots, micro chipped, and he just had a dental cleaning and some extractions.

He does have a collapsing trachea and, if he becomes stressed or overly-excited, he “honks”. It will be important for Gizmo’s new family to understand that it would be best for him to be in a calm home without a lot of activity. If you are looking for an adorable older gentleman to be your couch potato buddy, Gizmo might be the perfect dog for you.

Please fill out and adoption application if he is the man you are looking for, add his name to your application. Adoption Donation $175 includes microchip.

Kira
Adoption donation is $600


Kira

Septmber 2014
Hi! my name is Kira Marie and I'm a 3 year old female Yorkie. I still act like a puppy and have lots of energy. There are a lot of things I like: going for walks (hills don't bother me), going outside and just lounging in the lawn, sleeping in my bed, hanging out on my foster mom's lap, and I'm really good at riding in the car ( just curl up and sleep). I happen to be house trained, too, I hear that is a big PLUS. There are just a few things I'm sensitive to....other animals ( get nervous and bark), and small children are too jumpy for me...I like to be the smallest thing in the room.

I'm looking for a forever home that has adults and/or older children. People that can walk me, play with me and cuddle me. I'm ok at home during the day while everyone works (I like my rest), but I want some action, too (I love to fetch squeaky toys). I'd prefer to sleep in bed with YOU, but I'm ok in my own space, too. So if I sound good to you and you would like to adopt me please go and fill out an application for me. Adoption donation $600, includes microchip.

Rocky
Adoption donation is $550


Rocky

October 2014
Rocky is a sweet, tiny Yorkie weighing in at barely over four pounds and is 2 ˝ years old. He is very quiet, in fact he’s never barked at his foster home! He also is quite shy at first until he warms up to you. Once he knows you, he’s your friend for life! He loves to snuggle and sleep curled right up to you on the couch. He also loves to be held and carried around. He believes he is “king of the hill” and climbs on top of pillows or into the laundry basket to be up high and in a comfy spot!

He is up to date on his shots, micro chipped, neutered and heart worm tested. He has a seizure disorder that is controlled with medication (which is very inexpensive). He just had his teeth cleaned and polished for his new adoptive family. Due to his tiny size and disposition, he will need to be placed in an adult home with no children. He would make a great companion for someone that can spend a lot of time with him. Rocky says he is one handsome dude and would love to be your main man.

If you can give him a wonderful please fill out an adoption application with his name on it so we will know you want him. Adoption Donation is $550 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 you’re looking for an affectionate fellow, look no further. Nikkie loves to be held and will fall asleep in your arms. He’ll also sleep on your feet when you’re 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.

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. Don’t forget to add my name to your application if I am the guy for you. Adoption Donation $450 includes microchip.

Kitty

Kitty

November 2013
Kitty, not that is a strange name for a yorkie, but if you call Kitty, Kitty, Kitty, I will come as quickly as I can. I was a wonderful mommy to my pups Jed and Molly and was very protective of them, but now at six years of age, I deserve my own TLC. My temperament is very sweet and all I want is a lap of my own to sit in. I weigh about 8.4 pounds. My foster parents like it when I go to the back door and sit or bark until they let me out. I love to be outside so I hope my new forever home will have a nice yard for me to run in. If you will take me home, I will sit in your lap and snuggle with you forever.

If you want me really, really want me please add my name to your application you won’t be sorry. Adoption Donation $550 includes microchip.
