Look at those ears!!!! Korky is a gorgeous Yorkshire Terrier/ Corgi mix who weighs about 16 pounds - larger than most Yorkies but small compared to other dogs. He has big brown expressive eyes and those cute long ears that stand straight up when he is curious about something.

He is a very healthy and well behaved boy. A perfect gentleman.

Korky is housetrained and he uses a doggie door to go out into the back yard to do his business. His previous owner also paper trained him.

Korky has a great personality, he is very friendly, affectionate and likes to play. He gets along very well with other. dogs. He loves to be picked up and held and loves to snuggle up to his foster dad in bed.

His favorite thing is to lay next to his foster parents on the sofa and watch TV - American Idol is one of his favorites.

Korky can't wait to go to his forever home. If given the chance he will make someone a terrific best friend.

Are you looking for a fuzzy bear to keep you warm and go for romantic walks in the softly falling snow? Korky is just the lover boy to make your winter wonderland sparkle with big brown dog eyes just for you.

KEEP THESE FACTS IN MIND:
1. Yorkies do not usually get along well with small children and can be injured by small children, even ones who love them. Be aware of this and keep them apart.  
2. Yorkies can be very difficult (nearly impossible) to housebreak. If you are gone for more than 3 hours at a time, the dog will have to have access to wee wee pads, or need someone to stop in to let him out to potty.
3. We almost NEVER get a puppy (less than one year old) in Yorkie Rescue. If only a puppy will do, check the Yorkshire Terrier Club of America website for a recommended breeder - never buy over the Internet, or from a newspaper ad or a petstore. The heartache you save will be immeasureable.
4. There is no such thing as a "teacup" Yorkie, so don't be misled by such a description. LEARN about the breed BEFORE you decide to adopt.
5. You will need to make arrangements to drive and meet the dog at the foster home which can be in New Jersey, western PA, Maryland,  etc. The dog's biography lists where the dog is fostering. We want you to meet the dog with your family and your dog, if you have one. This is a requirement for adoption.

WHAT IS THE ADOPTION FEE?
Adoption donations generally range from $250-$450 or more, depending on the health, age and size of the dog.

Young Yorkies will have a higher adoption donation since they are the most highly sought after and they help to cover the costs of the older dogs who have a harder time finding a loving home. It is sad but true that people overwhelming demand very young dogs when they would be infinitely happier with a mellow adult. 


 ADOPTION AREA

Save A Yorkie Rescue prefers to adopt only in the PA, NJ, NY, DE, MD, VA, CT area's, but will consider homes in nearby surrounding states. Be aware that you will be asked to drive to meet and pick up your dog.
