Kimmie is available for adoption.

She is 12 years old and weighs 5 lbs.

Her adoption fee is $350.00.

Kimmie is a senior lady that was surrendered to the shelter after her owner died.  

Her son Inky was surrendered with her.

Although the dogs grew up together, they are not bonded or that fond of each other.

She is a sweet little girl, can be a little nervous but warms up to you very quickly.

She went to the vet today for her checkup and it was pretty good.

She does have a heart murmur but has probably had it her whole life.

She had her dental surgery and had several teeth pulled but has fully recovered.

She is getting along great with our pack and really just wants to be with her person.

She loves to follow you around the house or cuddle up next to you on the couch.

Kimmie does seem to have some mild kidney disease but it’s not slowing her down.

She’s a good eater and a feisty old lady who is very active and full of life.

She needs a forever home that will treat her like the princess she is 

Kimmie is staying with Susannah and Sara in Norfolk, VA.

KEEP THESE FACTS IN MIND:
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.

WHAT IS THE ADOPTION FEE?
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. 


 ADOPTION AREA

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.
