Her adoption fee is $350.00.

Patsy has had a great past week. Her personality is showing more & more. She will get right in your face to let you know that she wants more love please. She has been walking across the end tables lately to get from sofa to the chair, so we have been working on positive reinforcement, and she seems to be getting it. She just could not be any sweeter and still just wants to be loved & petted. She showed some interest in playing toys (mainly fetch & tug) with Lulu for the first time. She had 2 accidents in the house this past week, but otherwise she has been doing very good at going outside. She finished up her meds for her ear infection & her itchy skin rash. She will be seen by my vet this week to follow up, have a fecal finally done, and her micro chip placed. We will also discuss scheduling her spay, dental cleaning, tooth extraction & possible treatment of a few hardened nodules in her mammary glands. Her heat seems to have ended also. It lasted about 10 days exactly.  Patsy is in good health all around, and is not currently on any long term meds other than the typical heartworm, flea & tick prevention. She would be best suited in a home where someone is retired or works from the home. Sweet Patsy should be ready for her forever home in apprx 3 weeks. 

Patsy is staying with Kimberly in Yorktown, VA.

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.
