Hi everyone! Checking in on Rilee. He is a sweet little guy and is doing well. We've had him for a few days and we're still getting to know him but here's what we know so far: He just turned 1 and he is still very much a puppy! He needs a fenced in yard because he loves to be outside and loves his toys! He is very active and loves to go for walks. He is a little fearful of strangers but warms up if you take a slow approach. He loves other dogs and I've been told he gets along with cats but I can't confirm this because I don't have cats. He is pretty good with his potty manners but he does mark when he goes to a new place. He has appointments scheduled in June for vet check-up, grooming and neutering. Currently he is about 6 lbs but he needs to gain a little. Sometimes he rides well but other times he gets a little car sick. Rilee is looking for a home where he will not be left alone for more than a couple hours a day. A fenced in yard is a must! He is an active puppy and is looking for an active owner that will take him for lots of walks and spend time playing with him and socializing him. As a young puppy, a training class will also be required.
Rilee is staying with Barbara in McKean, PA.

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.
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.
