Archey is available for adoption.

He is 7 years old and weighs 16 lbs.

His adoption fee is $400.00.

Archey has adjusted well to his foster home over the last 3 weeks. We were able to squeeze in a grooming appointment before things shut down and the groomer said he did great with them. He is coming out of his shell now thathe's a bit more comfortable and it's been fun to see his personality! He LOVES walks. You can't even say the word "walk" around him unless you are ready to go right that second! He walks nice on a leash with minor pulling.  He naps most of the day but is now starting to playing with his foster siblings more. He loves to carry toys around and always grabs a toy for the road before we go outside in the yard. 

He is friendly and does well with other dogs and new people but has bonded
the most with me since I'm home with him during the day. He's showing the
stereotypical yorkie behavior of claiming "his person" and has gotten
protective of me. We corrected that and haven't had any issues since. 

We are also working on potty manners (he likes to mark his territory) and
belly bands are helping a lot.

Overall I think he would be a great companion for someone who understands
yorkie behavior and will be patient with him on his leg lifting. He would do
best in a quiet home as the only dog or with another dog who is more laid
back. He just needs plenty of walks and squeaky toys :)

I've had a lot of inquires about Archey but most people want a dog now and
aren't willing to wait unfortunately.  

Archie is staying with Jordan in Altoona, PA.

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.
