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

Toby & Boppy
Adoption donation is $900 each


Toby & Boppy

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

It would be lovely if they could stay together since they give each other courage and comfort. They have a good long life ahead of them and anxious to experience new adventures ! Watch out though, they're awfully smart ! Toby weighs 4 pounds and Boppy weighs in at 3 lbs. Each of these little guys are microchipped, will be fully vaccinated and neutered before they go to their new home. That home must have a committed adult with the time and enthusiasm to properly train these little guys in doggy manners and house breaking. Adoption donation is $900 each

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.

Tucker
Adoption donation is $200


Tucker

January 2015
Tucker is a little senior yorkie-man of approximately 12 years old. He has no teeth, but boy can he eat! Tucker is a real character and at barely 5 lbs. he has heart greater than many times his size. His hearing is not the best and he has cloudy eyes that make his sight poor, but the Vet has given him an otherwise clean bill of health. That was great news as it took a while to get Tucker to this point. He came to us badly neglected. He was so skinny that you could feel every bone in his body. He had 2 very nasty ear infections and where he wasn’t matted to the skin, he was bald. It’s amazing what a little love and caring can do for these neglected dogs. He is thriving now, with new hair growing in. He may not have much time left in this world, but if you have the heart to give Tucker the love and care he needs in the twilight of his life, he will return it tenfold in unconditional love. He is neutered, up to date on shots, heartworm, and fecal tested as well as microchipped. Adoption Donation: $200.00, 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

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.

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.

Rocky
Adoption donation is $475


Rocky

January 2015
My name is Rocky and I am looking for my forever person to love. I have had a rough beginning and I am a bit nervous and scared. I had a family but they couldn’t live together anymore and I went to live with a man who kept me in a cage in his garage. That really frightened me and I am still a bit more uncomfortable with men. I am super sweet though and LOVE to be held and cuddled. I will sit in your lap and cuddle forever if you let me. I like to sleep with you too. My foster family says I am a “cuddle bug”. I am friendly with other small dogs (big ones scare me) but don’t want to compete for my special person, so I want to be an only dog or live with one other quiet small dog.

I am a very cute guy and people say I am handsome. I am little (I only weigh 7 pounds) and easy to take everywhere you go. I only bark if someone comes to the door so I can protect my family. Best of all, I am housebroken! I will go outside or use a potty pad if it is too cold out there. I like to go for walks and rides in the car. I want to do whatever you do. I am enjoying getting out and going to adoption events with my foster mom and dad and have even kissed a few people to let them know how sweet I am.

By the way, I am UTD with all of my shots, neutered, micro-chipped, and just had my teeth cleaned. I am ready to go! If I am your man, please put my name on your application. My adoption donation is $475.00, includes Microchip. I am worth it.

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.

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.
