Colbie is available for adoption.

He is 1 year old and weighs 7 lbs.

His adoption fee is $800.00.

Colbie now is about 15 months old and weighs around 7 lbs.
He is a good eater, rides well in a car and loves walks.
He loves to prance down the sidewalk a little ahead of me but listens when I give a slight tug and call his name to come back closer.
Please give me a fenced in yard because I love to run around. Run with me or better yet have another dog there too.  I love to chase and play.

Colbie's potty manners are improving. He is much better about going to the door to let me know he would like to go out. When it is treat time Colbie is very polite and carefully takes the treat in his mouth.
Colbie likes just about every person and dog. He plays with my dog daily but prefers to be the one sitting on my lap. That is something we are working on. Colbie is super social and would benefit being in a home with another dog or friends with a dog thst likes to play. Also, trip to a dog friendly mall and park.

Colbie is staying with Trisha in Charlottsville, VA.

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.
