We’d love for you to say “hi” to Cashew! He’s just 1 year old and weighs 8 pounds and is all puppy! This little ‘peanut’ is super sweet, listens well, has a wonderful appetite, walks nicely on a leash and is an amusing bundle of energy. He rides nicely in the car and will play for days! He loves the company of his humans and would love a playful buddy. No time to play? No problem! He will happily find a toy and entertain himself. He is so much fun and truly a joy. This is a happy little boy! He has no fear of thunderstorms or fireworks, loves being outside and sleeps quietly through the night enjoying his little doggie dreams. 

He will need a home with a fenced in yard so when he gets the “zoomies”, or wants to play, he can safely run to burn off some of that puppy energy. He will also need several leash walks a day so he can meet new friends and smell all the wonderful things in his world. He enjoys a fast-paced walk, so if you’re someone that can keep up, he’d love for you to join him! 

Cashew came into rescue with lab work indicating a liver shunt, very common in Yorkshire Terriers. We did extensive testing, including an ultrasound. During surgery, rather than finding a repairable portosystemic shunt, it was discovered that Cashew has micro shunts. This type is not repairable but is manageable with daily supplements for liver support. He also had a cystotomy and the bladder stones were removed and analyzed. He easily took the many post-surgical medications (pills were tucked in a blueberry and down the hatch they went!).

Cashew is so fun, so playful and greets every day like it’s going to be the BEST day ever! He will play for hours and hours happily chasing his ball (and brings it back too!) He plays all day with his foster brother both vocalizing puppy squeals of joy throughout the house. He has the happiest personality and there is a bouncy delight in everything he does. 

He’ll still need a CT scan and then we’ll know more of what he will need to stay feeling well lifelong. So, check back and we’ll continue to keep you updated!

UPDATE 9/6: During Cashew's CT scan the doctors were able to visualze what they believe to be a repairable liver shunt. He will be having surgery to repair the shunt September 22.  

UPDATE 10/11: Cashew's surgery went very well and on the 5th his staples were removed. He is doing great, currently taking one medication. He will require further testing on or around 11/22 to make sure his little liver is doing what it's supposed to do. We'll keep you posted!

Cashew is staying with Bonnie and Mark in Northampton, PA.

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.
