Teddie is available for adoption.  

He is 5 years old and weighs 11 lbs.

His adoption fee is $450.00.

Teddie joined Bo (14), Charlie (3) and Freeloader (cat - 6) last week. He did well acclimating to his situation. He is still learning his place in the pack and is becoming more comfortable every day.

Teddie loves to cuddle and enjoys downtime under a blanket. He is potty-trained but still has the accidents.

Teddie loves his downtime, but his favorite thing is to run! He and Charlie will run laps around the yard at speeds humans can only dream of. He definitely needs a fenced yard.

He likes to play with people, or the dogs, more than he does with toys. He loves when we get down to his level and initiate play. He is great with cats.

He loves company and greets all new people with a smile and wagging tail. He will go in his crate to hang out but still needs more crate training to be comfortable in it when we leave.

Teddie is still skittish but becomes easily trustworthy. He is a love bug and full of energy at the same time. He does not have much training but with time we think he will excel in this area. Teddie loves to eat and is still learning that not all the food is his, which is understandable sine he weighs 11.5 lbs. and needs to gain a few. He is a sweet, high energy dog that deserves nothing but the best from his parents, brothers, and sisters.

Teddie is staying with Richard and Barbara in Woodbridge, CT.

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.
