Now that we’ve had Joe Joe for a bit more time we can still confirm that he is calm, cool, and is even more of a cutie now that he’s had a visit to the groomer. The groomer conquered and said there were no issues and he was well-behaved. Joe was a stray so we have no previous information on him. But what we can tell you, is that he’s one chill dude who would like nothing better than to be mellow by your side. However, he gets excited too, hopping around like a bunny when he wants to play. He likes to play chase with his humans and will pick up a toy and runaway with it. Joe is also very agreeable and doesn’t object to being in a crate or taking a nap by himself if nobody’s available to snuggle. And boy is he quiet! Not a single bark; not even when the doorbell rings and a chorus of barking erupts from his foster brothers. When it comes to getting along with other dogs, Joe is just as easygoing but doesn’t generally engage. He seems to prefer the company of humans, although he’s not territorial and doesn’t seem to get jealous. He also eats well, he enjoys a leisurely stroll around the block, and he sleeps through the night. Joe does drink a lot of water, and therefore, urinates frequently. We manage this easily with a belly band and frequent trips to the backyard. The vet has ruled out a medical malady and believes his excessive drinking is merely behavioral. We have recently started to limit his water intake and this seems to be helping. However, he will need a home where someone has the time and patience to monitor these behaviors. Joe is able to handle going up a moderate number of stairs but he seems scared to go down them and has never attempted.
So if you’re in need of a calming presence to ground you during these crazy times, JoeJoe is your guy.
Keep Calm and Adopt On :)

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.
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.
