Tiny Dancer has had a tiring week.  She went through a neurological examination at a specialty veterinary hospital.  Her blindness has been confirmed.  We are awaiting the written neurology report.

During the post-exam phone debrief the Doctor mentioned that Tiny appears to have a cerebral malformation and referenced several possible diagnoses to explain her abnormal gait and frequent falls.

Following receipt and review of the assessment report, the path forward will be determined by Save A Yorkie.

In the meantime, Tiny Dancer continues to eat her meals as though she has not eaten in days, often stepping in her food bowl while voraciously eating. We give her small portions several times daily to reduce the probability of choking . . . . . or worse. It is very sad to witness this behavior. 

Tiny very much likes to cuddle up and to be held; she is loved and feels secure with us.

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.
