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

Lady / Adoption donation is $375

March 2018
Lady is such a sweet girl. She loves to be in your lap and loves giving kisses. Lady lost her right eye in an accident last year. She also had un-diagnosed diabetes, which left her almost completely blind in the other eye. She does get around the house well, as most dogs adapt really easily to losing their sight. . She was not previously potty trained, but she is getting the hang of it. You have to take her outside and watch her.

Lady weighs 6.7 lbs and should weigh a little more. She is 9 years old. She will need a new home that has experience with giving insulin or someone that wants to learn about it. It's not difficult at all. She does take some care but is so worth it. She does well in a puppy pen if needed, but Please, no crates! She lived most of her time in a crate at her prior home. Lady loves other dogs. No small kids please,as she can't see to move out of the way of quick movements. Lady is microchipped, fully vaccinated and spayed. Adoption donation is $375, includes microchip

Grace / Adoption donation is $100

October 2017
This precious little girl is Grace. She is estimated to be about 12 years old. She is very friendly, sweet, and quiet. She enjoys sitting on your lap, or beside you on the couch. She gives kisses upon request. She loves her food, but most of all, she loves to go for a walk. She is good in the car, although she will walk around the car to different windows if not confined. She gets along very well with other small dogs, but has not been seen with cats, or large dogs. She gets along with children over the age of 8 as long as they are mature enough to handle small dogs.

Unfortunately, Grace's teeth have not been well taken care of, but due to a heart murmur, anesthetic dental cleaning is not an option for her. Because of the heart murmur, Grace may need to be on medication for the rest of her life, but because of her small size, the cost will be minimal. Grace is a small girl weighing in at 6.9 pounds, and she's a beautiful black and silver Yorkie. She is full of love. Grace would do well in a home with a stay-at-home mom or dad, or other small dogs her size. Grace is micro chipped, vaccinated, heart worm tested (negative) and is spayed. If you're looking for a great companion, put "GRACE" on your application. Adoption donation is $100.00, includes microchip.

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.

Elvis/ Adoption donation $600

October 2017
Hey Folks- Elvis is in the building! This 2 year old pup Ain't Nothing but a Hound Dog, of Yorkie/Long Haired Chihuahua parents. He is a lanky 9 lbs of hunka-hunka burning love. Elvis is a bit shy with strangers and needs a family to teach him how having dog manners opens up a whole world of going for bye-bye rides and sleeping on his human's beds.

Elvis is fully vaccinated, heart worm negative, micro chipped, neutered and has had a blood chemistry panel also. This guy is a bit underweight, but his appetite is good so he should fill out quickly. We want Elvis to go to a home where he can run in a yard or park and have a dog buddy that likes to play as much as he does. Don't let Elvis leave the building before you get a chance to meet him, so fill out an adoption application now with his name on it. Adoption donation is $600.00, including micro chip.

Daisy is microchipped, spayed, fully vaccinated and had a full dental cleaning. Her blood work showed no issues with her health. She is a happy dog but is dominant with other females. We believe that she should be adopted to a home as an only dog to be able to soak up 100% of the love that she missed out on during her early years. A stay at home parent would be great and a yard is a must.

Daisy / adoption donation will be waived

June 2017

You have been awarded a ďSenior Pet GrantĒ from the PETFINDER FOUNDATION! Daisyís adoption donation will be waived and we are looking for the best possible home for her. The Petfinder Foundation is sponsoring senior pets currently in foster care that are older and have less of a chance to be adopted and in some cases (NOT Daisyís) euthanized. Please fill out an adoption application if you think you want this precious girl to be a part of your family.

Once again, thank you to the Petfinder Foundation for your generous support and helping to facilitate the adoption of Daisy!

Daisy is beautiful 10 1/2 yr old Yorkie. She is in very good health and acts half her age. It may be that since her first 10 years of her life she was used as a backyard breeding mama. Her puppies were shipped to another state to be sold in pet stores. Now that she has the freedom to roam in a nice grassy yard, and spend her nights in a comfy bed in a loving home, she is enjoying her life to the fullest.


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.

Louie-Louie / Adoption donation is $450

March 2018
Everyone meet Louie-Louie, he is a sweet 8 year old 7 pound hunk of love. Louie-Louie did not adjust well to the arrival of a new baby. The mother was unable to provide her lively but nearly blind dog with the attention needed due to priority needs of her new baby. Housebreaking lapsed and they put him in belly bands. He was transferred to her mother. Finally mother and daughter agreed it was best to find Louie-Louie a new home. Louie-Louie is gentle, affectionate, and knows some commands like sit, stay, and beg. He can walk on a leash with guidance. He will go out to potty if given the chance. By the way he will play fetch till he drops. His ball has a little bell in it so he can hear it when going after the it. He is a real hoot! He needs a stable home where he can find his way around and no small children.

He is UTD on vaccines, neutered and just had his pearly whites cleaned. Adoption Donation is $450, includes microchip.
