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.

Time is going by so quickly. It is hard to believe that sweet Mindy has been with us for one year. She came to SAY with high blood sugar readings and cataracts. Over the past year her readings have become close to normal; but the cataracts became worse and she lost her sight. We discovered this when we saw her walking into walls and doors and into our Golden Abby. We put up gates to prevent her from falling down the stairs. A Muffin Halo was donated to keep her safe. As the name indicates it’s a halo attached to a harness that she wears to prevent her from walking into things. 

Many things have changed but a few have remained the same. She is a “Foodie” and loves to eat. For those that have met her know she is quite vocal about having her food served on time. She’s the first one to be served (to keep her quiet) and the last one to leave (after she checks out everybody’s bowl).

She’s a real tough girl. She will usually push her way through the other pups to say hello to my son when he visits. He’s like the occasional bullystick that she gets to snack on with her licking and nibbling at his chin.

She loves to walk now. When she first arrived, she would not take one step. So my husband would carry her half way up the street and she would concede and walk back down the street. Today she bippity bops down the street as if she’s dancing to a tune.

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.
