Dickins is one of a bonded pair of Yorkie boys, he will have to be adopted with his mate Drooper.

He is 10 years old and weighs 13 lbs.

Their adoption fee is $400.00.  (for both dogs)

Dickens and Drooper are a 10 year old bonded pair from Buffalo, NY.

The boys were surrendered by their owner because he had to go into assisted living.

They arrived today via Pilots for Paws and are getting adjusted.

The pilot of the second leg had to keep them overnight due to storms.

He said they were super sweet and got along fine with his dog.

They went for a vet check today and were deemed in pretty good health.

Both boys need to lose a little weight so we have them on a prescription food to help with that.

They should each weigh around 11-12 pounds.

Both need dental cleanings and unfortunately may lose a fair amount of teeth.

Dickens also has a mass on his tongue that will be removed and biopsied just to be safe.

We will be working on a regular potty schedule to improve their potty manners.

And we’ll be introducing them to our dogs later this week.

They seem very sweet and loving, although Drooper is a little nervous/anxious at times.

They will make a great pair for anyone who has the time to dedicate to them and is looking for a pair of very chill pups. They should hopefully be available for adoption by the end of July.

Dickins is staying with Susannah and Sara in Norfolk, 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.
