Looking for a new Home...

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.

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. You must fill out the form to be put on the waiting list, and someone in your area will contact you.

Thank you, Mary Elizabeth Dugmore

Dallas / Adoption donation is $350

September 2015
Dallas is a yorkie mix pup of about a year and a half old. He weighs just under 9 pounds. As a happy dog of this age, Dallas has a zest for life and loves to run and play. He needs a yard to explore and a family that has time to teach him all the things he needs to know to be a great pet. Dallas was the victim of some sort of burn that has left him with scars on his back. These burns have healed really well and should shrink over time. He may never have hair grow back completely, but he is open to a stylish, somewhat disheveled hairstyle that can cover the marks. Dallas has been neutered, microchipped, heartworm and fecal tested and has all his vaccinations.

Dallas is ready to become your new best friend, please fill out an application now. Adoption Donation is $350.00, includes Microchip.

Remy / Adoption donation is $350

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.

Tootsie / Adoption donation is $550

November 2015
Hi Everyone, Iím Tootsie. I was born Nov. 27, 2012 so I will turn 3 years old right after Thanksgiving. I weigh about 5 pounds. My human daddy passed away a few months ago and now my mommy is very, very sick. Mommy thought it was best to send me away so I would find a new home and people to love me since she cannot care for me. I have only ever lived with Mom so other dogs, strange humans and even kittens scare me. I never used to ride in the car or go to the store, but I think itís really fun as long as scary people donít touch me.

When I was only 1 year old, my left eye turned cloudy overnight. Mom took me to the special Vet but they could not fix it. I canít see out of that eye, but I donít care. I get along just fine with my good eye. My foster mommy says I am a good girl because I wait to potty outside and learn new things very fast. I really want a new family to call my very own. I am little and get frightened easily so I would not like little kids at my new house. Please put my name on your adoption application! I want to have a new home soon.

Adoption donation is $550.00, includes microchip .

Scrappy / Adoption donation is $525

July 2015
Scrappy is just that Ė a scrappy guy that loves to be loved, needs to be cuddled and wants to be your best friend. He is a kick to watch when an ice cube falls from the dispenser and misses your glass Ė itís a wonderful frozen toy for him to play with. Scrappy likes other dogs, but would be best as an only dog, unless the other dog is older and docile. Also, he should not go to a home with small children. Scrappy has anxiety, and it gets escalated when other dogs or small kids run around. Itís as if he gets so excited he just canít control himself. In a calm environment with nothing to get him riled up he is calm, happy and well behaved. Scrappy is trained to a doggy door, walks well on a leash and likes to go for car rides. We believe him to be a Yorkie/Jack Russell mix. He is 3 years old, 10 .2 pounds and neutered, microchipped and fully vaccinated.

If you can give this wonderful fellow a loving home with a nice yard to run in and a warm lap to cuddle in, please fill out your adoption application now. Adoption donation is $525.00, includes microchip.

Franklin / Adoption donation is $550

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.
