Geno is available for adoption.

He is 10 years old and weighs 13 lbs.

His adoption fee is $350.00.

Here is a veteran loveable Yorkie male.  He came to us from a shelter in Brooklyn, New York. There they named him Geno.  He did not respond to that name so I call him Squirt.  He likes that better.  A best guess is that he is between 9-11 years young.  He was picked up as a stray so we do not have any background on him. 

He is an active toy-loving typical Yorkie. He gets on well with other dogs.  Loves the oudoors rain or shine.   I have talked to many people that are interested in Geno, all lovely people , but only a few have a fenced backyard.  This is one thing I think he really needs and enjoys.   He is currently on the Wiederle household weight management program as he is a little plump.  He will thrive with someone who likes to take walks, is home most of the time and wants a friend to shower with pets and kisses.  

Geno is staying with Sharron and her gang in Catonsville, 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.
