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.

Cash / Adoption donation $500

October 2017
This is Cash, the cutest and sweetest little Yorkie - Long Hair Chihuahua mix you have ever seen. He's only 2 years old and weighs just 7 pounds. 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! He's only ever had the run of a big back yard, so the idea of walking on a leash is strange to him. He is smart and eager to please, so training him to like walks will be easy. He is a happy guy on car rides and is a quiet boy? too. Cash will come to your home fully vaccinated, microchipped, heartworm and fecal tested. He has been neutered as well as had a full Blood chemistry panel done, showing he's a healthy little handful.

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 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.

Gracie / Adoption donation is $450

January 2018
Hi,my name is Gracie. I weigh 3 lbs and am 3 years old. I am a love bug when I get to know you. I just love to lay in your arms and sleep. My foster mom thinks I am adorable. I am looking for an exceptional person or persons to adopt me. Whoever you are you need to be home most of the time. ABSOLUTLEY NO SMALL CHILDERN.

I am very cute but I am a special needs little girl. So the person that adopts me will need to be very patient with me. I really donít know what happened to me, my mobility is not so good. I take medication to help my mobility, but I still have trouble. I am also blind. I want to be loved for who and what I am, is that too much to ask. My foster mom loves me I know because she holds me and makes me feel safe. When I want attention I whine and donít stop until I get what I want. I eat really well, sometimes my foster mom has to hold the food to my nose so I know itís time to eat. I sleep in an ex pen at night to keep me from getting hurt, which I don't mind at all. I ride real well in a car, sleep most of the time while in the kennel until we get where we are going. I know you will fall in love with me because I am so adorable, my foster mom has. She has other Yorkies, I donít pay any attention to them, sometimes I bump into them, but they pay me no mind. So if you have other dogs in the house they need to be really mellow. So if a less than perfect Yorkie doesnít bother you and you would like to adopt me and give me the love and home I deserve please add my name when you fill out an adoption application. Adoption donation is $450, includes microchip.
