Bunnie is one of our many Forever Foster's.  Will YOU SPONSOR Bunnie?

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!

Bunnie came into my life with her brother Jimmie, born a year apart. While sitting in the owner's car, she handed each pup to me.  As we chatted I remarked on how thin Jimmie was.  She told me that he poops all over the house therefore she doesn't feed him much.  I doubt she saw the shocked look on my face.  She proceeded to tell me that when away she locks Bunnie in a cage and Jimmie in a separate room.  I wanted to blurt out "why would you do that?' but kept my cool.  And then the crazier part, they never went out of the house except to go to the vet.

 I had no problem introducing them to my other two pups.  They quickly learned where the puppy pads were and never had an accident after that. 
 
The Vet cleared them both saying Jimmie needed dental but not Bunnie  since she didn't have teeth. It must have been about a month later when it looked like something was stuck in her check.  I put my finger in and discovered she had 2 teeth on one side and 1 tooth on the other. My surprised Vet had to call a tech  into the exam room when he still couldn't see the teeth.  The tech held the flashlight and finally confirmed that I was right.   I expect to have her 2nd dental cleaning in Feb.
 
The inquiries came in rather quickly but as the week progressed I noticed Bunnie's belly beginning to grow. I knew she was spayed but it looked like she was pregnant.  Back to the vet to be tested and confirmed that she had kidney disease, a form of glomerular. She was put on a special diet, given Lasix when needed and put on a BP pill.  The inquiries stopped when it was learned that she had kidney disease and that is when she became my forever foster.  Of course I adopted Jimmie as my own.
 
It was quite fascinating showing them it was ok to go outside.  Bunnie will run to the door when it is more convenient than going to the puppy pad.  Jimmie on the other hand rarely goes out unless all the dogs run out when something is happening outside.
 
Medically though Bunnie has been doing great. She is now 12 years old (Jimmie is 13).  I was able to stop the Lasix and she hasn't shown any signs of illness.  Her last blood test showed the creatine/bun level was now normal but the bun was quite high.  That was just last month and we plan to have it redone in Feb when I get her teeth cleaned.
 
The vet said that I no longer have to feed her the prescription diet but  I am leery  about switching so quickly.  I am feeding her half regular and half prescription dog food. Thankfully she has a great appetite.
 
I'm happy to say that she may not be the best to show as an example of how much the org spends for medical but she sure could be a poster dog for the fund raising, she takes such great pictures.  I attached a couple of her pictures.
 
Many Thanks to the wonderful people that are Sponsoring Bunnie!

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.
