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

Beasley / Adoption donation is $500

June 2017
MY NAME IS Beasley I am 2 years old and weigh 7 pounds. My foster mom got a call about me having to live in a bathroom. Friends and neighbors wanted me to have a better life and contacted foster mom about taking me and helping me to find a perfect home for me. I love to be outside and play and bark at the ducks and birds. In the house I really love to run and play with all of my foster friends. We have a good time playing with our toys , even tug of war with a Chihuahua. Some of my friends are very old and don't really like to play with me so I just leave them alone.

I am always happy to meet new humans and especially children. I'm very busy and clever . I can jump all the baby gates and get through the bars in the fence. You have to be quick to keep up with me because I'm always thinking. I'm very clever ! I escape to go visit the children 2 door down from our house. Foster mom always finds me and carries me back home. I also love to ride in the car. I'm a lot of fun and full of love.

I would love to have a forever home, if I am the guy for you please fill out an application to adopt donít forget to at my name so they will know you want me. I am UTD on shots and neutered. Adoption Donation is $500, includes microchip.

Lou / Adoption donation is $150

March 2017
This pretty little boy is Lou. He was discarded with Paddywak in a box at the front door of a high kill shelter. Apparently they had exhausted their use at stud in a puppy mill. We went to rescue them but Lou had been adopted the day before. Reading Paddywak's story you will know their history. Later I got an email from the woman who adopted Lou to tell me she had him. We had met before thru the rescue. After about 6 months she called me and said she felt badly for him because he missed her so much when she worked and wanted her attention all the rest of the day and night. He was so needy for the love and affection he discovered so late in life at 10 years. She felt he would be better off with someone who could be there to love him all the time.

He is here now with his brother, sharing my lap and snuggling close in bed. Lou is a delightful little boy at 5.5 lbs., but with a big appetite. He, too lost all his teeth from poor care so he eats soft food and small kibble. He is forever your companion, in your lap or by your feet. He also was debarked but left with a raspy voice that he uses to ďtalkĒ to you when he wants something. Lou is at least 11 years old and has a heart condition. You wouldnít know he was ill because he wants to be a part of all things and has responded well to his medication. Lou is a little sweetheart and always gets admiring compliments.....just naturally the first to get attention. However, he knows who he belongs to and is very loyal. The first day here he stayed in his little doggie house missing his mama. The second day he went exploring and by the next day had become foster momís biggest fan. Dogs always make one feel special and Lou is no exception !

He is neutered, micro chipped, fully vaccinated and heartworm tested. He takes Lasik medication. Adoption donation is $150, includes microchip.

Nicky & Rocky / Adoption donation is $700

November 2016
Nicky and Rocky are two homebody buddies. They are not brothers, but love each other even more than brothers if that is possible, so we wonít separate them. Both little guys are 7 years old. Rocky is the bigger brother at 10 lbs. Nicky is little bro at 8 lbs. They havenít been out in the world much, but foster mom says that they get along well with other dogs and are a delight to have in the home. These cuties have been brought up to date on their vaccinations, been heart worm and fecal tested ( negative) and were given a nice going over by the Vet as well. The exam and blood work show these guys to be healthy little tykes. Both boys had full dental cleanings so they are more than ready to find a brand new furever home for the holidays. Please fill out an application now if you are looking for a double dose of unconditional love and affection. Adoption donation is $700.00, including microchips.

Paddywak / Adoption donation is $250

May 2016
Paddywak came to us from a high kill shelter in L.A. He seemed so very small and compliant, not especially reactive for an 11 year old boy. He had never been nuetered and his breath could knock you over from bad teeth long uncared for. When he was placed in the home among the greeting family of yorkies he seemed ready to do his job which seemed to be mounting any willing volunteers. There were none and he was quickly rebuffed and soon avoided. Paddywak had to learn a new way of life. From his reaction to things this little boy had never been talked to, loved or played with by a human and apparently was only bred to reproduce. Housetraining was a puzzle to him and affection quite foreign.

Today this little boy is a new "person". He has had all his shots, neutered and fresh breath. His teeth cleaning really meant removing rotted teeth that didn't even bleed.....there was only infection left in the gums. He is healing, happy and attached at the lap. Sit down and he becomes part of you, move to the next room and he is by your feet. Bedtime is the best time because then he is snuggled up next to you in bed. Life has never been so good ! He is cautious with strangers but always gentle. When the others bark at imagined bad mailmen and other dangers Paddywak joins in but nothing comes out. Wherever he lived before they made sure he didn't complain so they had him debarked.

Little guy, big love now. He is ready for his best home ever! Adoption Donation is $250, includes microchip.

Daisy / Adoption donation $600

June 2017
Daisy is about 10 years old and weighs 10 pounds. She used to spend her days and nights in a kennel nursing her latest litter of pups. That was her job - to produce puppies to sell. She is now retired from that life and is learning the joys of being a companion instead of a commodity. Daisy is super friendly and loving. She is smart too. She will go out the doggy door to do her business, but still needs reinforcement to not forget and potty inside. She loves to go where you go and never met an animal or person she didn't like. She is spayed, had a complete dental cleaning, she has been heartworm and fecal tested for parasites. Daisy is also up to date on her vaccinations and has been microchipped. Please give Daisy the sparkle she needs to live her true golden years as she was always meant to. Adoption donation is $600.00, includes microchip.

Trixie / Adoption donation $850

May 2017
This is Trixie. She came from the shelter as a matted mess andwe were told that she was a Yorkie mix puppy. After all that nasty hair was shaved away, we discovered a beautiful Mini Schnauzer underneath. Trixie is about 8 months old and weighs 6.1 lbs. Our vet gave her a clean bill of health and said she should only gain 1 -2 more pounds as she is nearly full grown. Trixie was very neglected for the first few months of her life. Now she is vaccinated, microchipped, Fecal and Heartworm tested ( both negative) as well as spayed. She is learning to walk on a leash, but mostly 'surfs' the hardwood floor right now. She will need a lot of exercise so an enclosed yard is a must for her to play in. She does use the doggie door to go in and out, but is not house broken yet. Due to her almost total neglect, she is not socialized so she is fearful of people, strange places and funny noises.

Her new parents must be ready, willing and able to take her to obiedience classes and spend the required time it takes to turn an energetic puppy into a well mannered companion. If you are the person that can commit your time and energy to this sweet girl for the next 15+ years, fill out an application now. Adoption donation is $850.00, includes microchip.

Ella / Adoption donation $700

May 2017
Meet Ella! She is ready to meet you. She loves people and will plant her self right in your lap on on your feet if you're standing up. Ella is 5 years old and weighs 10 pounds. She is a former breeding dog. Ella has had her teeth cleaned, her vaccinations updated and she is microchipped. We had a blood panel done ( all good!) and her Fecal parasite and Heartworm tests were negative. Ella has a natural tail. She doesn't mind other dogs, but has an alpha personality so make sure any other dogs in the home are prepared to become Queen Ella's subjects. Ella is not used to being a pet, so she will have a transisition time with her new family learning proper doggie behavior in a home. She is smart and loving and truly wants to please her people.

Jack / Adoption donation $200

January 2017
Jack is a 5 lb neutered male Yorkie. He is a curious boy that likes to look out the window on a car ride and always follows foster mom around to make sure he doesnít miss a thing. Jack loves to eat, but he is on a special food due to reoccurring pancreatitis. He must never eat people food and even some dog foods will make him ill. He also has a bit of a cough when he gets excited due to a condition called Collapsing Trachea, but he is on cough medication and it works well. Jack is 9 years old, loving and spry. He likes other dogs, but not as much as he likes people. As a small yorkie, his perfect home is one with no small kids, no larger dogs and a human parent that can spend every day with him. He is micro-chipped, heart worm tested and vaccinated.

Please fill out an application for Jack to be your new best friend. Adoption donation is $200.00, includes microchip.

Izzy/ Adoption donation is $125

November 2016
Calling all people who love seniors girls, my name is Izzy. I am about 14 years old, weigh about 8 Ĺ pounds. I was living with a family I thought I would be with forever, guess what I was wrong. My life was turned upside down when it was decided they didnít want me anymore. I am told I am now living in a foster home and YTNR saved me. When I first got here I didnít want any human to touch me, my foster mom gave me my space. Then after a few days she picked me up and put me in her lap and loved on me. She was horrified when she started petting me, she said if felt like my hair was full of sand. She went and got something called a flea comb and ran it though my hair, I was infested with fleas, she said she had never seen so much flea waist. I was treated and given a bath, boy that felt so good, I was filthy. We are still fighting fleas but there are less every day. She told me she just didnít understand why I wasnít taken care of, that I deserved better. She told me I had to tell you I am almost blind (see shadows) and canít here real well either. I wear panties because I am incontinent donít mind wearing them, at first I didnít want them on, tried to run away from her. I am not a lot of trouble cause I sleep most of the day. I think I have several more years for someone to enjoy having me around.

So if you love senior ladies like me please fill out an adoption application, put my name on it so they know you want to give me a loving home. Adoption Donation $125 includes microchip.

Ebony/ Adoption donation is $800

April, 2016
I was born with nerve damage so I am considered a special needs little boy, I weigh 5.8 pounds and I am 10 months old. I was surrendered to YTNR at 2 months because something happened at birth that caused nerve damage. My owner didnít know how to take care of a pup like me so she contacted YTNR for help. Now after the loving care of my foster mom, I can now walk a lot further without my bottom hitting the floor ( but it still does sometimes). Sadly the nerve damage has affected my Kidneys and Bladder so I have to wear a belly band. I will not be able to sleep in your bed because of the Bladder problem, but that doesnít bother me in the least. My foster mom has done water therapy along with acupuncture. Without this type of care I donít think I would be walking as good as I do now.

I love to play with the other Yorkies in the house and don't want to stop! Oh I love car rides, but I need to be in a kennel for my safety. I am looking for a VERY SPECIAL FUREVER home. I want to do what is right like the other Yorkies but I just canít. I will give back to you with so much love it will melt your heart. The only other thing I can tell you about me is I HATE bath time. You really have to be strong to give me a bath, but the good side to this is I love being brushed and donít mind the clippers or hair dryer.

If you are interested in adopting me submit an application, donít forget to add my name. I am really praying I can find that special person who doesnít mind taking on a special boy like me. Please remember, my special needs will be for life due to the nerve damage, and I need someone that will be HOME ALL DAY. I am living in Indiana, if you are in another state mom said you would have to be willing to travel to adopt me. Adoption Donation $800, includes micro chip.

Batman / Adoption donation is $550

June 2017
Meet Batman!! He is a sweet 3 year old Yorkie. He weighs 10 lbs., but the vet recommended he lose a pound or two. He is up to date on his shots, neutered, microchipped and mostly potty trained. He has a clean bill of health from the vet. He is shy when he first meets a new person, but once he warms up to you, heíll be your new BFF! As his name reflects, he is a pint size dude with bat like ears. He is all personality and he uses his ears to demonstrate his mood. He loves to have his ears and neck petted. He was trained not to get up on furniture, but he does like to be held and snuggle. He uses a doggy door to go outside to sit in the warm sun. He is friendly with other small pups and cats. In fact, Batman and his foster momís cat play together just about every evening.

He does have some fears due to being roughed up by small children in his past, so definitely, no children in his new home. He would do best in a quite home, to overcome some fears, with lots of attention and another small dog as a buddy. If I am the man for you please fill out an application donít forget to include my name so they know you want little ole me. Adoption Donation is $550, includes microchip.

Shayna / Adoption donation is $600

June 2017

Remi / Adoption donation is $400

January 2017
Remi is a nine year old handsome fellow who is completely housebroken, quiet and friendly little guy. He has recovered from horrific dental problems that he came in with. He gets along with everyone. Dogs, cats and people. Remiís doctor said that Remi may need to go have bone removed from his sinus area because the antibiotics are not reaching the spot where the infection is hiding. So we give him antibiotics and he responds well to that and then when the antibiotics stop the infection just starts leaching out again. Remi is the sweetest little Yorkie and we continue to care for his needs. He will make a wonderful pet.

Adoption donation is $400, includes microchip.
