Thank you for stopping by to say “Hello” to sweet Quinn! He is just 6 months old and weighs a smidge over 7 pounds.  

He rides nicely in the car, great at bath time and doesn’t mind loud noises. He has a wonderful appetite and enjoys every bite of his kibble. He will need a fenced yard to safely and freely explore his world and obedience classes are a must to help little Quinn be the very best he can be! He is super friendly and his long tail wags constantly. He loves meeting new people and new canine friends as well! He is a joy! He is curious and fearless and when he wants to play with my two dogs, rather than sniffing nose to nose (or the favorite “other” end), he just hops on them! In his perfect world, he would love to have another younger dog in his new home to play with and enjoy long walks.

He is learning his commands and is quite a good student. He is so happy and so much fun and we love his sweet personality, his little puppy breath and that adorable little face! 

Quinn came into rescue with lab work indicating a liver shunt, something being increasingly diagnosed in Yorkshire Terriers. We had several appointments scheduled for further testing to determine if there is a shunt, and if so, if it is operable (which is the most common type).

Update 3.19.22: All of Quinn's testing is complete, including a CT scan. It was confirmed that he has a shunt, and luckily it is operable! His surgery is scheduled for April 27th.

Update 5.1.22: Quinn had his surgery to repair the shunt. The surgeon said the surgery went very well and little Quinn is back in his foster home recovering. He's doing really well and wants to run and play, which will have to wait just a bit longer until next week when his sutures are removed.

Update 5.15.22: Quinn's stitches were removed and post-surgery bloodwork was perfect, even his ammonia level is in the normal range! He will be re-tested in the beginning of June just to be sure his little liver is doing what it is supposed to do. Fingers crossed, but so far really good news for this sweet little boy! 

Quinn 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.
