Cubby Bear is available for adoption.
He is 5 months old and weighs 6.6 pounds.
His adoption fee is $950.00.
Cubby Bear was surrendered to the humane society in a Nike shoe box by a man who said he found him by the side of the road. So the staff at the humane society named him Swoosh! He was in very poor health,presenting with symptoms of liver shunts. So they ran blood tests and they also indicated liver shunts. Despite the excellent care he was receiving from the Humane Society and from their volunteer foster moms he needed more. So they called Save A Yorkie Rescue and asked us if we could get him the specialized medical attention he needs. He is now in our care and has an appointment scheduled with Valley Central. He looks just like a little bear in his picture, hence the new name Cubby Bear! How befitting is that?
We found out he is too young to do an ultrasound or cat scan at Valley Central so they did bloodwork and bile acid testing which concluded that Cubby has a liver shunt. He will go back in 2 weeks for more bloodwork. They also put him on more meds to help control the symptoms and affects of a liver shunt. We will let you know more about Cubby and when his surgery will be scheduled as soon as we find out.

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.
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.
