Rocky Balboa is available for adoption.

He is 7 years old and weighs 12 lbs.

His adoption fee is $450.00.

Rocky Balboa is doing well in a home environment. He is enjoying his new routine and loves going on walks. He has found a voice and will use it from time to time. He has a good appetite, loves cheese and pill pockets. The smell of pizza gives him the zoomies. He is energetic and curious but loves a good nap next to the humans. He is still a little shy and takes some time to warm up. Hanging out on the patio is his favorite activity. He is very smart and responds to training on basic commands.  He has puppy-like bursts of energy and will need a fenced yard as well.  He is very good with other small dogs and loves his foster brother. Rocky Balboa will need to be in a home with a dog sibling.  

Rocky will be available for adoption mid-late September barring any unforeseen circumstances.

Rocky has been a trooper and lets me give him medication and apply ointment twice a day. He loves stealing his foster brother’s food when no one is looking. He continues to mark his territory and throws a tantrum when corrected. We have a follow up vet appointment next week and keeping our fingers crossed all goes well. 

Rocky Balboa is staying with Ankita in Elkridge, MD.

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.
