Chippin is available for adoption.

He is 9 years old and weighs 7 lbs.

His adoption fee is $350.00.

Chip was surrendered due to owners moving to another location, and they did not have enough time to spend with him. Chip was originally found as a stray--so his true age is unknown--but vet records estimate that he is about 9 years old. This little 7 lbs of sweetness is an absolute joy to foster! He is easy going, friendly with other dogs, a great listener, eager to please his humans, and LOVES to take neighborhood walks! Chip is progressing on potty training. He will need a refresher course at his new home and will need to be kept on a routine of frequent potty breaks every 2-3 hours for him to be successful. Although Chip has a soft sounding bark, he uses his voice throughout the day about alerting you to noises, and to communicate to you of his wants. Therefore, we are looking for someone who lives in a single family home so that his barking does not disturb neighbors. As well, we are looking for a home with a fully fenced-in backyard so that he can continue to enjoy his romping sessions. Chip is a best-of-both-worlds dog that equally enjoys short bursts of playtime and enjoys long naps snuggling next to you. Chip will be available for adoption after his neuter. 

Chippin is staying with Janet in Oakton, VA.

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.
