Hi, I'm Melody.  I am 7 years old, I am a Yorkie Poodle mix. I am a nice size to cuddle with and sit with, I weigh 17 pounds and I am a real snuggler. No one knows the whole story but I am completely blind.

I lived with my family my whole life. My human Mom and Grandma took me to a shelter because we were homeless. Human shelters do not allow dogs. So the shelter knew that as loved pet, I needed some extra help finding a new home.

I am housebroken, very gentle and I get along with other dogs. I am a good dog in the car, the groomers say I am a good girl. I love a warm gentle bath and to be brushed. The cooler weather is great, the breezes and wonderful smells are so exciting. I have a fenced in yard which helps me to walk around by myself by touching the fence and house. Inside the house took me a few days to figure out. Foster Mom calls me so I know where the good stuff is happening! I am pretty low key and energy, I like to play bitey feet and tug and can walk on a leash just like everyone else. Foster Mom says I am usually a little slower when we do things because I am very careful. 

I am spayed and microchipped. Save a Yorkie Rescue and my Veterinarian have taken care of my health with the surgery and lab work as well as got me through the summer heat and allergies. 

I'm ready for my forever family and home now! 


Melody is staying with Ruth in Milton, DE.

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.
