A Diamond in the Ruff is available for adoption.

She is 7 years old and weighs 11 lbs.

Her adoption fee is $550.00.

Diamond in the Ruff was transported by van from a shelter in NYC to her foster home in Delaware. Diamond was in need of surgery to remove bladder stones. Poor girl was just miserable in pain and was confused and scared. Diamond was taken to a Veterinary Hospital for immediate x-rays and lab work in preparation for her surgery. The next day she had surgery to remove “the mother load” of bladder stones. She also had a bladder infection and eye infection. 

She is a cutie and is feisty and very playful. She is starting to show her personality. She is not food aggressive or resource guarding. She is slowly getting to know her foster brother, she is not dominant and it was reported she is afraid of cats.

Diamond came home from her surgery with special food. She will 
have to remain on the prescription diet and distilled water to drink for the rest of her life as this is the main source of the painful bladder stones. Diamond has graduated from a cone to a onesie but will not be able to have her grooming until the stitches from the Cystotomy are removed. She is looking forward to finding her new furever home!

A Diamond in the Ruff is staying with Ruth and Sheldon in Milton, DE.

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.
