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

Here's Paddy. He was found wandering, disheveled and badly in need of some love and care. Today in his foster home he has made himself at home easily and after a much needed tooth cleaning and a groom he is one handsome fella. He lost a few of those messy teeth so it shows in his smile. But that smile is genuine....he feels good ! He has his own look, head atilt, one ear up and the other down !

Paddy is about 8 years old so he is a gentleman with the other pups and not especially inclined to play rough. He does love to lay close at night following close behind when it's bedtime. Morning time he runs out in the yard to water the plants and then after a snack is ready for the day.....that means a lively walk and whatever attention he can garner. Mr. Paddy is so ready for his forever home.....he wants to be your sweetheart !

Scrappy
Adoption donation is $600


Srappy

May 2014
Scrappy is a spry Yorkie mix of about 3 years old. He was picked up as a stray and even though the owners were contacted, he was never picked up. He was rescued from Doggie Jail on his last day there, saving him from an early and untimely demise. He contracted kennel cough from being at the shelter so long, and it turned into pneumonia. The poor little guy has been through a lot, but he has bounced back and is now his loving and happy self. He has been neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. He weighs about 12 pounds. Scrappy is a sturdy active fellow and would make a great family dog. He needs a yard to run off some of his energy and a dog buddy would be great when the family has to be away from home.

Please consider making this scamp a member of your family. Fill out an application now and list Scrappy as your choice. Adoption donation is $600.00 including microchip.

Joey
Adoption donation is $500


Joey

February 2014
Joey is a playful puppy. He is a small Yorkie mix of 6.5 lbs. He is about one year old. He is eating well and knows how to use a doggy door. He is playful with the other dogs in the house . He was very clingy at first but now is comfortable being in another room without his foster mommy. He is skittish/barks around males, but is not aggressive. He is being trained to walk on a leash. He loves to play and chew on his toys but is not destructive. He does well staying home alone (albeit current home has other dogs). He is a super smart little boy who rides well in cars, is crate trained and already knows how to play fetch. He seems to be housetrained for the most part. He really only seemed to have accidents due to not wanting to let his foster mom out of sight. It is a little early to tell, but seems like he may have gotten past that and will use the doggy door to take himself out. He currently sleeps with his foster mom and dad and lets them know when he needs to go out during the night for a potty break.

Joey needs a forever mommy or daddy who will dote on him and he is sure to dote back. He is suited for a home with a family that enjoys all the frolicking and complete abandonment that comes with a playful puppy. He will do well with other dogs and probably children who understand to be gentle with him. He was homeless for at least a few weeks before being turned over to YTNR so he was very skittish at first in his foster home and spent much time hiding between his foster mommyís feet. After the first week though he has become much more comfortable and doesnít have to be in the same room all the time.

Joey is vaccinated, and will be neutered and microchipped before he goes to his new home. Adoption donation $500 includes microchip.

Bean

Bean

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.

Tasha
Adoption donation is $400


Tasha

July 2014
Tasha: This petite princess has known some hard times. We arenít sure how she came to be filthy, matted and running the streets, but those days are behind her now. At 5.5 pounds with beautiful silky hair (at least the hair that could be saved after removing the matts) she is one darling Yorkette. Tasha is housebroken and accepts other small dogs though she isnít inclined to play with them. She likes to be held and sits quietly on your lap, but is very spunky when she wants to go outside or go for a car ride. She rides quietly in the car, and especially loves it when foster mom puts the top down and she can let the wind blow through her hair like a real California girl. Tasha has great manners in public and would be a wonderful little buddy to take with you wherever you go. She walks well on a leash and isnít at all loud or yappy. Like most well-bred ladies, she isnít telling us her age, but we guess her to be 7 years old. There may be some scary secrets in her past as she can be skittish at times and will even hide in the farthest corner she can get to, curled up in a tiny ball.

If you would like to add this sweet girl to your family and give her all the love, time and affection she deserves, fill out an application now. She is fully vaccinated, parasite and heartworm tested, microchipped and has just had a much needed dental cleaning where she had several of her rotten teeth removed. Adoption donation $ 400.00 includes microchip.

Brandy
Adoption donation is $150


Brandy

June 2014
Update: Brandy is now a playful and happy part of the Yorkie pack at foster momís house. She gets along well with the males, but gets a little bossy and wants to be the Alpha dog when around other females. She is very active for being 11 years old. Her health is very good. When Brandy was a pup, she was bitten by a spider which made her very sick. She lost one toe on that rear foot and it doesnít grow much hair anymore. Brandy needs an experienced pet owner that will make sure Brandy knows that they are the boss, as she will sometimes be bossy with humans when she doesnít want to do something.

September 2013
This is Brandy. A beautiful pure bred Yorkie Terrier. Brandy is going through a tough time right now - her owner passed on and she is missing the only pet parent she ever knew. Brandy is 10 years old and weighs about just under 10 lbs. Her coat of hair is long and pretty and she doesn't mind having bows or clips to make her even more beautiful. She would do best as an only dog as that's what she is used to.

Brandy is spayed, up to date on her vaccinations, and ready to meet you to help her get over her grief with a new owner to love her. Her adoption donation is 150.00 including 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 hasnít dampened his enthusiasm for life nor his ability to give affection. Heís 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 donít 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.

Winter
Adoption donation is $600


Winter

May 2014
This is Winter, heís not really a Yorkie, but donít tell him that. He romps and plays with all the other Yorkies as if he was one of the clan. He was found running the streets like a free spirit. That was fine for a while, but missing a cozy bed and regular meals was tiresome. A good Samaritan tried to find his rightful home, but with no collar or tag and no microchip he was pronounced an orphan. Thatís when he came to live with the other foster Yorkies. Winter is a terrier mix that is pure white and pure fun. Playing with toys or dogs or people is his favorite past time. He would make a good family dog but should have a dog buddy of his size and activity level to keep him company when the human family has to be away. Winter is about 2 years old and weighs 10.2 pounds. Winter has been neutered, vaccinated, heartworm and fecal tested.

If you are interested in making him a part of the family, please fill out an application for adoption now. Adoption donation is $600.00 including microchip.

Snookie
Adoption donation is $600


Snookie

May 2014
Snookie is one of a group of little dogs that someone decided to put in a box and Ďthrow awayí by leaving them by a creek. He is a timid and sweet dog of about 3 to 5 years old. Snookie is most likely a Maltese/ Pomeranian/ Yorkie mix. He weighs a petite 5.6 pounds. Snookie was neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and heartworm tested and is ready to go to his new home. He would do best with another dog buddy of his size and activity level as he seems to be happy in the company of other dogs. He will not be adopted to a family with small children because of his timid demeanor. He prefers to be out of doors, so a yard is a must. If you are looking for a doll of a little dog to be your companion, please fill out an adoption application and name Snookie as your choice. Adoption donation is $600.00 including microchip.

Oscar
Adoption donation is $450


Oscar

May 2014
Oscar is a sweet energetic boy with a voice. He loves to bark and tell you what he wants. He is totally a lap dog, loves pets and likes retrieving small toys. He is housebroken, UTD on all his shots and was recently neutered. Oscar is very well socialized with it comes to other dogs, but very leery of strangers, petting and picking him up. Riding in the car isn't one of his favorite things to do, but once he's in his crate he calms down and rides well. He would love living with an older person or couple. I don't think he'd like children as he's pretty shy. I am unable to test him around cats, so I don't know he'd be around cats. Oscar will made a wonderful companion for that right person. Please name Oscar on your application for adoption. Adoption Donation is $450.00, including microchip.

Lexi
Adoption donation is $850


Lexi

March 2014
This is Lexi. A spunky, happy Yorkie mix. She is about 5 years old and weighs in at about 5 lbs. She was a lonely stray that couldnít find her way back home. Itís probably a good thing, because it doesnít appear that the folks back home were taking very good care of her. She has a scar on her back that can be covered by her hair. Someone had glued her ears and fur together and cut off her whiskers. She is a quiet and mild manner girl. She gets along good with other dogs. She is up to date on all her vaccinations and will be spayed and have a dental cleaning before she goes to her new home.

She will also be microchipped so that getting lost doesnít mean she canít get back home again. Please show this little girl some love and fill out an adoption application for her. Adoption donation is $850.00 including 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.

Wojo

WoJo

July 2014
I am Wojo. My foster mom thinks that came from ďWhoa JoeĒ because I walk so fast on a leash. I am about six to seven years old and spent most of my life with one owner in Michigan. He took me everywhere and I love car rides. My owner died suddenly and I was taken in by a family with two dogs and six kids. I loved them but it was just too much excitement for this dog too handle. So my foster mom took me in and signed me up for the Yorkie rescue.

As you can see by my picture, I am the cutest thing on four legs. I am curious and like exploring. I am smart, too. I know how to sit, lay down, stay (even though I donít always like to) and, most important, I can let people know that I have to go outside. My foster parents think I am a sweetie. I follow them around the house and like to lay by them when they are reading the paper or doing computer work. I donít bark much. I do have my own way to communicate and my foster family is catching on. Big noises donít bother me- I am no scared-dy cat! Speaking of cats, they are new to me. I am trying to respectfully make friends with the cats in my foster home but they havenít warmed up to me (they are cats after all). I get along just fine with the dog that lives here. My foster mom hasnít gotten the hang of walking with two dogs but I walk great on a leash!

I really donít like to be left alone. I get very anxious when the humans leave me and I will bark a lot and can get anxious with new people visiting. It takes a while for me to calm down after these events. I also bolt out any door if I get the chance. My foster family is working with me to help me with these things. I am UTD on all of my shots and will be neutered soon.

So if you are looking for a good companion who is sweet as can be I am your guy. Oh, did I mention I am adorable and downright cute? Adoption Donation $375 includes Micro Chip.

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. Donít forget to add my name to your application if I am the guy for you. Adoption Donation $450 includes microchip.

Kitty, not that is a strange name for a yorkie, but if you call Kitty, Kitty, Kitty, I will come as quickly as I can.

I love to be outside so I hope my new forever home will have a nice yard for me to run in. If you will take me home, I will sit in your lap and snuggle with you forever.
