Anakin is available for adoption.

He is 10 years old and weighs 11 lbs.

His adoption fee is $350.00.

Anakin joined us from New York City on October 5th.   He is a Yorkie mix, between 9-12 years, intact, and weighs in at 11 lbs.  We don’t have much of a backstory on him, however we believe he had one-two previous owners.  WE understand he was named Anakin by a previous owner.  Anakin looks and acts years younger than estimated.

Anakin has been with us four weeks and is adapting nicely.  He enjoys sitting on the couch and getting neck rubs. When not doing couch time, Anakin often takes up residence on Tiny Dancer’s soft bed, forgetting he has an equally soft bed about five feet away.   

He really likes going out into the yard , visiting boulders and shrubs, checking them out.  We’ve noted that his favorites times of the day are mealtimes. He has a very friendly and engaging personality, and likes tagging along with as he ‘helps’ us with housework.

While in the house Anakin wears a belly band, as he is not yet potty trained. The little guy is scheduled for neutering on November 9th.   

Anakin is anxious at times, and will pace about before he crashes for a nap.  He would do best in a home where he is the only four-legged house pet, can get semi-frequent attention, a lot of TLC, and enjoy several daily walks when the weather is good. 

Anakin is staying with Lynn in Marlboro, Ct

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.
