Rex has had a good week. He wanted to go with me and my pack on a walk so my daughter and I took him. We figured one of us could carry him if he couldn’t make it around the block. Well, Mr Rex was the leader of the pack that afternoon on his 1/2 mile walk and is now walking a mile every morning when it’s nice and cool! We couldn’t believe how well he walked on leash. He is a gentleman. No pulling. No lunging at birds and squirrels like my crazy dogs! He came home after day two and slept a little harder but overall he loves when I pick up the leash. We haven’t tried multiple walks in a day yet because he is older and his gait is certainly affected with his leg issue but we feel these walks have lifted his spirits so much.   He is running to the door to get ready for a walk. Oh! And he runs to the treat drawer when he hears the bag rattle!!  Rex is not fond of cats or larger dogs but another small dog and a fenced in yard will be pluses for all potential adopters.

Rex connues to sleep through the night and have very good potty manners. He did have an accident this week but that’s okay. We know he didn’t mean it. It’s just one of those things. Foster mom just cleaned it up and kept on going.   Rex is scheduled for surgical consultation on July 2 and hopefully surgery the same day. Dental couldn’t be scheduled until August 3rd because the veterinary office is so backed up due to COVID 19. But that’s okay. He will be almost fully recovered from leg surgery then have a dental and be ready for adoption.   

Rex has his first bath with me today. He was a little scared. He did allow me to gently wash and towel dry him. I slowly introduced the grooming tools to him. He allowed me to softly brush him, blow dry him on low heat/speed, trim hair from his eyes and paws, and get the gunk out of his eyes. He was a true gentleman.  Here are a few photos from bath day.          

Rex is staying with Sharon in Hopewell, 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. 

Be aware that you will be asked to drive to meet and pick up your dog.
