Tiny Dancer is available for adoption.

She is 5 years old and weighs 5 lbs.

Her adoption fee is $400.00.

Tiny Dancer's first five years are a mystery.  She came from an abuse case that the shelter dealt with.

It has been determined by a neurologist that we took her to - that Tiny is blind and has some type of cerebellar dysfunction.

This condition does not stop her from doing anything that she pleases. This adorable little girl seems to get a little out of balance and has a soft fall before quickly righting herself.  She is doing a little more house exploring, however for the most part Tiny stays close to one of us.  She enjoys laying on the floor or the bed in the sun-room in the mornings and afternoons, catching the warmth. 

Tiny generally is a sound sleeper, and has maintained a consistently healthy appetite since joining us.  She is very cuddly and nearly always comes when called - tail wagging!  She is doing well, ably navigating about the kitchen, sun-room, and family room when she isn’t taking a snooze or doing her pre-meal ‘dance’ about the kitchen when her meals are being prepared.  Tiny has started giving a big greeting when one of us returns after being gone for an hour!    

Tiny Dancer is staying with Lynn in Marlborough, CT.

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.
