Mindy Me is one of our Forever Foster's.  Will YOU Sponsor Mindy Me?

To help Mindy Me stay safe and free from falls and possible head trauma she is wearing an assistive device known as Muffin’s Halo. Developed to aid blind dogs. Read about their mission here https://muffinshalo.com It’s an amazing company helping dogs. 

They have DONATED this wonderful device to help her. Please stop by their site and recommend the device to those you know may need one and support this awesome company. 

Thank you Muffin’s Halo! You are a life saver for sure!

A Forever Foster is a dog that is either older, has a medical condition or a socialization issue and seem to be unadoptable only because we receive no applications for these dogs thus we assume no one wants to adopt them.   Save A Yorkie Rescue will not euthanize a dog for these reasons and the dogs remain in rescue to live out their lives with their forever foster family.  Their remaining years (no matter what age they are) are spent being well taken care of and loved in their forever foster homes.   Save A Yorkie Rescue pays for all of their vet bills, including all medications they may be on, grooming, food/treats if on a special diet and any supplies one of these dogs may need. 

Save A Yorkie Rescue is able to provide for our Forever Foster's, only through the generous donations we receive from all of the Yorkie lovers out there!

Mindy came to Save a Yorkie rescue after her owner could no longer care for her. She was accepted without reservation even knowing that Mindy had diabetes.

Mindy recently had an appointment with her vet for a blood test. Her sugar levels are within the acceptable range but unfortunately, her liver values are not.

 

About a year ago, Mindy had an ultrasound of her liver and a large mass was found.  We were told that surgery was not an option because it would only grow back and it would be unfair to put her through that trauma. It was quite worrisome when her bloodwork came back and the numbers had doubled. Again, we were told she is an older gal and nothing can be done. 

 

Even though she likes her afternoon naps, it is hard to believe she is an “older gal.” She loves to tease her pal Oliver, spinning around in front of him trying to get him to play or shoving a stuffed animal in his face for a little tug of war. 

Recently Mindy likes to eat her dinner by walking around the bowl. Since she is not very neat, it looks something like this: Take a bite, drop some on the floor, move to the right and repeat. And in between bites of food I clean up the floor.  She does not like to step in her food and does a freeze move with her paw up in the air. Yes, I know it is all a little bit bizarre. But I’m happy that she’s eating because she’s also a picky eater. 

 

Mindy loves being outside in the warm sunshine. Once in the house, her sweater goes back on otherwise she will shiver. Well autumn is just around the corner and the cool weather means wearing sweaters all the time and cuddling close.  Actually, I’m looking forward to it.

 

We are incredibly delighted to have her as a forever foster.


Many thanks to the wonderful people and company for Sponsoring Mindy Me!

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 vary from dog to dog, it depends on the health, the age and the 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, western NY, DE, MD, VA, some CT area's. If you are in the NYC area or near Long Island, there is a Yorkie Rescue closer to you. 

Be aware that you will be asked to drive to meet and pick up your dog.
