Hi, I'm Tippy! My foster mommy says I have special needs, and she's not just talking about my eyes. What are my other special needs? 

-I need lots of love and attention.
-I need a comfy place to curl up and snuggle, preferably next to my human.

-I need lots of love and attention.
-I need someone who can play AND cuddle with me.

-I need lots of love and attention.
-I need a backyard to wander and smell around in.

-I need lots of love and attention.
-I need some chewy toys.
-Did I mention I need lots of love and attention??

I know I can't see too well, but I can get around just fine as long as I know my human is nearby. Are you that special person who can take care of my “special needs”? If you can give me the love and attention that I deserve, call or email my foster mommy today.  I can't wait to meet you! 

And now a few words from my foster mom:

Tippy has been with us for over a month now and she continues to be a sweetheart!  She has some vision problems; she is completely blind in her left eye, and partially blind in her right. Still, her impaired vision does not impair her ability to give love and attention. She is a complete cuddle bug once she gets to know and trust you (which doesn’t take long!). Now that she is comfortable with us, she will excitedly come toward us when she hears our voices, wagging her tail, pawing at our legs, ready to be scooped up and snuggled. She moves around the house cautiously (again, largely due to her poor vision), so a house with fewer stairs would be ideal. Still, it doesn’t take her long to become familiar with her surroundings and move around more confidently. She is willing to wear her harness and leash and will walk slowly, sniffing the smells in the neighborhood. She also enjoys leisurely exploring our fenced in backyard. Tippy has been taken out regularly and has had minimal accidents. She eats well and is able to find her water bowl and food dish with ease. She rides well in the car and sleeps through the night. She is content to sleep alone in her dog bed or in her crate, but would also happily sleep snuggled up next to you. She gets along well with her foster brothers, sometimes even trying to engage them in play. She has recently discovered some toys that she enjoys chewing on and wrestling with. Tippy’s favorite activity is just to sit snuggled up next to you. She will make a wonderful companion and can’t wait to add lots of love and affection to your home!  You couldn’t ask for anything more. 

Tippy is staying with Allyson in Nutley, NJ.

Needs special care

Save A Yorkie Rescue, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) qualified non-profit organization operating on donations from Yorkie lovers who care. Please help by donating your tax deductible donations.

YOUR generosity is appreciated!

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.

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. 


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.
