Quimby is one of our many Forever Foster's.  Will YOU SPONSOR Quimby?

A Forever Foster is a dog that is either older, has a medical condition or a socialization issue and seem to be unadoptable only because we receive no applications for these dogs thus we assume no one wants to adopt them.   Save A Yorkie Rescue will not euthanize a dog for these reasons and the dogs remain in rescue to live out their lives with their forever foster family.  Their remaining years (no matter what age they are) are spent being well taken care of and loved in their forever foster homes.   Save A Yorkie Rescue pays for all of their vet bills, including all medications they may be on, grooming, food/treats if on a special diet and any supplies one of these dogs may need. 

Save A Yorkie Rescue is able to provide for our Forever Foster's, only through the generous donations we receive from all of the Yorkie lovers out there!

Quimby is so happy and is feeling like he is a puppy again since I was able to get him groomed and get rid of the long hair he had when he came into rescue.  Quimby  interacts with me and any visitors that come and he was a "very, very good boy" for the groomer and allowed her to bathe him, cut his hair, clean his ears, brush his teeth and trim his nails.  Now his sits in front of me and seems to be saying;  "look how handsome I am".    He is a happy little guy.

Quimby came into SAY Rescue on July 10, 2021.  He was born March 5, 2007 and is 14 years old; he weighs 6 pounds.  Quimby  knows  the commands sit, stay, lay down, dance, walk, roll over, and play dead.  He likes car rides, children, gets along with other dogs.  Health wise, he has very  good teeth, he has a slight heart murmur and a cough from collapsing trachia, and a delicate stomach.  Quimby potties outside and uses training pads when left home alone.  Quimby is very laid back and  friendly.  His favorite thing is a good crunchy Milk Bone treat.

Quimby will live out his life being loved and well taken care of with Faye and the girls!

Many thanks to the wonderful people that are Sponsoring Quimby!

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. 

Be aware that you will be asked to drive to meet and pick up your dog.
