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

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.

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.

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.

He's a little shy at first, but he warms up fast and turns on the charm. He's playful and fun loving. Cash gets along great with other dogs and likes kids and cats!

Bennie / Adoption donation is $150

September 2017
Hello. My name is Bennie and I was born on 4/30/2005 which makes me a distinguished gentleman 12 years of age. I came to Yorkshire Terrier National Rescue because a bunch of new people moved into my house with my family and there was no more room for me. I have always been an only dog but my foster mom has a bunch of dogs and we all get along but I really would prefer to be your one and only. I have many good qualities. I really like to meet new people. I stand up on my rear legs and walk up to them and give them a big smile. I think I should have a job at Walmart as a greeter! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE going for walks. I could walk all day and I am good riding in the car. My old mom made me wear a belly band in the house but my foster mom said I could go without it as long as I was good. I have not had 1 accident because we go outside very often. I also really enjoy sitting in the sun outside so I will need a fenced in yard because I can run really fast.

I sleep in my crate at night. Now, you must be thinking "he's perfect" but I must admit to a shortcoming. I have a sensitive liver. Yes. That's right. I MUST be on a low fat/low protein diet or my liver gets mad. I can eat regular kibble but it MUST be low fat/low protein. I also take a pharmaceutical called Denamarin every day which keeps the toxins out of me. My foster mom gets it on the computer and she said it is not expensive. Well, that's my story. I'm a handsome, manly, independent little 8 lb. guy who would love to take you on walks every day. If you think I would fit into your family, please contact Yorkshire Terrier National Rescue and look for me, Bennie. I'll be waiting....Oh I forgot please fill out an adoption application add my name so they know you want me. Adoption Donation is $150, microchip included.

Barney / Adoption donation is $400

October 2017
Meet Barney. His owner adopted him at approx. 8 wks. and mothered him; she was fearful due to 2 lb weight and tiny size.. She was extremely protective of puppy; he slept on her chest. Because of this Barney was not socialize properly. He grew unaccepting of her husband, causing stress in the family. After many years of dealing with the situation she called YTNR to see if we could find him a home where he would be loved and blossom into the Yorkie he knows he can be.

Barney lived on several acres with a large pond, free range as long as he stayed away from road where her first Yorkie was killed. Barney had good care. He is a shy, timid dog. With love and patients Barney will learn to love all humans.

In foster care, Barney allowed my husband to hold him, and he followed my dog around at a distance. As time has gone by in foster he is much friendlier with men and women and his foster brother. He can sit, stay, and sit up, and he had novice obedience training in 2012. He pulls on a leash when walked so that will need some work. He is small and vigorous. Barney weighs 6 pounds and is 7 years old, he likes long walks and rides in the car well. Adoption Donation is $400, includes microchip.

Chloe / Adoption donation is $800

July 2017
This is Chloe. She came to us the end of May from an animal shelter that could not treat her injuries. She had a broken pelvis on her right side and dislocated left hip. She could barely move and would cry out in pain when she tried. Chloe had surgery to place a plate on her pelvis so it would heal properly and she had a femoral head ostectomy (FHO) on her left hip. Now, after 8 weeks of rest and healing, she is loving life again and looking for a family to call her own.

Chloe is approximately 5 years old and weighs 8.5 pounds. She is a very sweet cuddle bug and can be quite funny with some of her antics. She is cautious of new people but once you get her stamp of approval she will shower you with kisses and soak up all the affection she can get. Chloe gets along well with other dogs and cats. She does not like thunderstorms. Chloe has been vaccinated, spayed, micro-chipped and is heartworm negative. If you would like to add Miss Chloe to your family and give her the wonderful life she deserves, please fill out an adoption application and be sure to put her name on it.
