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

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 he’s 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
Adoption donation is $450


Snoot

February 2015
Check out Snoot! She’s a retired breeding dog. She was surrendered to the rescue after her last litter was delivered by C-section. Snoot was not well socialized before – she rarely left the breeder’s home. Now she is learning how to meet new people, walk on a leash, and go on car rides. She is overweight from not getting enough exercise, but has lost a couple of pounds at her foster mom’s 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.

Toby
Adoption donation is $900


Toby (Southern California)

January 2015
Toby was born Oct 1st. At 3 1/2 months he is almost ready for the balance of his puppy shots and then neutering. He has no problem living this wonderful life. Everything is an adventure. New tastes, new sounds, new adventures. He has no qualms about making new friends, rolling around together and loving those two legged humans that seem to know how to love him back and keep his tummy full. He is also learning to walk on a leash but is still too distracted to know when to ask to go out for potty......he'll get it eventually.....

He has a good long life ahead of him and anxious to experience new adventures ! Watch out though, he is awfully smart ! Toby weighs 8 pounds and is microchipped, will be fully vaccinated and neutered before he goes to his new home. That home must have a committed adult with the time and enthusiasm to properly train this little guy in doggy manners and house breaking. Adoption donation is $900.

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.

Aubree
Adoption donation is $600


Aubree

February 2015
This is Aubree. A 4 year old, 5 ½ pound female Yorkshire terrier. We can’t figure out why she was given up by her owner to a county shelter. She is well mannered and healthy. Aubree is up to date on all her vaccinations. She has been microchipped, spayed, fecal and heart worm tested. The poor little girl is taking some time to get over her stay in dog jail so she will occasionally hide under the bed when a new person shows up or she hears a loud noise. Aubree seems to be a submissive dog. She doesn’t seek out other dogs to play with but she doesn’t mind their company. She also knows exactly what to do when you open the door to the yard – she heads right out like a shot and does what she is supposed to do. She is learning to walk on a leash and she likes to ride in the car if she can look out of the window.

Please fill out an application now. Adoption donation is $600.00, includes microchip.

Mojo
Adoption donation is $900


Mojo

February 2015
Mojo is an 8 to 10 month old male Yorkie Mix puppy. He is just under 6 pounds of energy and unconditional love. He is a little slow to warm up to new people, but once he figures out you want to play, he is your best friend. It is unknown what breed he is mixed with, but he is a little fellow with petite feet. It is unlikely that Mojo will grow much larger than he is now. If you are interested in adopting this pup, you must be ready to make the commitment to him for his entire lifetime – a commitment of possibly 15 years or more. He needs a home with plenty of time and energy to devote to his training and care. A yard would be real asset for this pup to play in and get plenty of fresh air and exercise. Mojo will be fully vaccinated, neutered, heartworm and fecal tested, as well as microchipped prior to his adoption. Fill out an adoption application now. Adoption donation is $900, includes 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 – 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 $500


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 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.

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.

Max
Adoption donation is $700


Max

March 2015
Day 1: Hi everybody! My name is Max and my former family didn’t have enough time for such a special guy as me. I must have intimidated them with my superior intelligence so they left me in a cage most of the time. But my new foster family thinks I’m AWESOME and I am thoroughly enjoying my newfound FREEDOM!!!

My new foster brother JAZZ played with me and we chased each other most of the day. My new foster parents threw the ball about 100 times and I never got tired. My new foster sister Sophie Rose thinks I’m very handsome and will get adopted quickly, so I think she’s sad…

Day 2: More FREEDOM! Romp through the house. Chase squirrels. Chase the ball. Chase JAZZ. Jump on Sophie Rose—this is FUN!

Did you know that a Yorkie can fit in a dishwasher? I didn’t until I tried it. Foster Mom says “no” but I don’t know what that means yet. I also jumped into the dryer. And the shower. And almost made it onto the ballroom counter. Foster Mom says that my “vertical leap” is 4 feet. I don’t know what that is either. I just know that jumping is FUN!

Sophie Rose called me a “tornado.” I’m not sure what that is but it sounds pretty cool.

Day 3: Can you spell n-e-u-t-e-r-e-d? Foster parents should have spelled it so I wouldn’t know what it was. I do now—decidedly NOT fun. Looking forward to tomorrow…

Max is a 7-pound, 9-month-old male Yorkie who is just a love-bug. He has been starved for attention and affection, so he’s very loving and clingy. And he’s ALL puppy! He needs a fenced yard and lots of exercise and activity. He does well with other dogs—male and female and has let small children pet him with no problems. He hasn’t been around cats yet, so I’m not sure how he would react.

He would make a great pet for a family looking for an active, inquisitive, intelligent Yorkie. We are starting to work on his manners and basic commands, but he’s only been with us for a couple of days. He has been marking his territory, but he got neutered today, so hopefully that and some training will help him to stop.

He’s very agile and might enjoy agility training. And he would love to have another dog to play with. He gives kisses and is very sweet. He just needs love and attention—don’t we all??? UTD on shots. Udates to come as I progress.

Adoption Donation $700 includes microchip.

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.

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. Don’t 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 – 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 – or more precise, tiptoe around and around them, and then bark if they don’t want to join the game. Other times we ignore them, but probably best if we don’t 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 we’ll show you: wee-wee hand-stands! It is oh so cute … we could have YouTube stardom in our future.

If you’d 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.
