About Valentina

Valentina will be available for adoption after she has patellar surgery on both legs.

She is 2 years old and weighs 6 lbs.

Her adoption fee is $700.00.

Valentina is a very special young lady! She is 6lbs of unbelievable 
cuteness! She is 2 years old with lots of energy and she likes to talk. Valentina has patellar luxation. It is a degenerative condition
in both of her back legs. The condition causes the kneecap (patella) to pop out of its socket causing pain and limpness. The kneecap is popped out most of the time, and while it can be reinserted manually, it tends to pop itself right back out again. This condition will only worsen over time without surgery to keep this beautiful girl from being in constant pain. Consider sponsoring Valentina’s surgery and help this rescued girl secure a long life with two strong legs to assist her in running and playing with her friends.
Valentina's surgery will be scheduled soon and the surgeon will do only one leg at a time.  There will be a 12 week recuperation for each leg but will be worth it in the end for this vibrant little girl.

Many thanks to the wonderful people that are Sponsoring Valentina!

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.
