Sheldon is available for adoption.

He is 11 years old and weighs 6 lbs.

His adoption fee is $350.00.

Sheldon is a joy to have.  He is quiet, snuggly and a little love bug.  The only time Sheldon barks is when he knows we are going out.  He barks all the way to the elevator.  Once the elevator door opens and we step in he will not make a sound until its time to go out again.  One day after a walk he got on the couch and howled!  It was very grandson who I was face-timing with  started to howl and they both howled for about 2 minutes!  He has never done that again...  I think he was jealous that I was face-timing too long lol.  I have about 50 toys but Sheldon loves his giraffe.  I hide it inside the pile of toys and if I ask him to get his toy he will dig through to retrieve it.

Veterinarians are so busy we could not get his neuter and dental until October 21st, then he will be ready to go to his forever family, right in time for the cold weather because he is always at your side like a little warm water bottle.

Sheldon is staying with Lynda in Fort Lee, NJ.

Save A Yorkie Rescue, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) qualified non-profit organization operating on donations from Yorkie lovers who care. Please help by donating your tax deductible donations.

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.
