Gordo is available for adoption.

He is 5 years old and weighs 12 lbs.

His adoption fee is $450.00.

Gordy is my first Latin lover dog. He comes to Save a Yorkie Rescue from Puerto Rico, post earthquake.  His background is unknown as he was found as a street dog.  He is a tad taller than my Yorkies and a little thin for his frame.  He is weighing in at about 12 pounds right now.  He is a good eater and a great sleeper.  He is very affectionate which is good news; we are working hard on his potty manners.  

It has been an uneventful week for Gordy. He has mastered his potty communication notice. He climbs up on my lap and gives an abundance of kisses. First the kisses then he goes out and goes potty outside every time.  He is a happy pup that deserves a really great forever home. 

The perfect furever home for Gordo will have a bilingual family that can communicate with him.  I believe he would also do best if the family had a laid back small dog.  Gordy is a true treasure. 

Gordo is staying with Sharron in Catonsville, MD.

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.
