6/24 Update

This week has seen so much  improvement in Melody's comfort and adjustment to the changes in her life.
Last week she was given an injection for her allergy symptoms. It has taken a week but she is so much more comfortable.  Melody likes her meals and treats.She is great with my dogs and with strangers. So gentle, she is my shadow. What I do is what Melody does. Now that she has figured out the floor plan in the house she takes herself exploring, she investigates cabinets and clothing closets. She loves her bed and toys. Outside she spends time in the sun and shade and uses the fence to guide her walks. If it's time to go in she can find the steps and waits for her assistant to carry her up the steps.  I can see she is comfortable in her environment and the small changes are the little bark that comes from the other side of the yard or from another room that tells me she would like to know where I am.  Sure enough that's what she needs.
Yesterday Melody was groomed, she is anxious in new places, and needs extra potty time. She sits in her car seat or naps in the car, very nice traveling companion. 
After breakfast this morning Melody decided it was time to empty the toy basket. She prefers soft toys and tug with her person. I have to say it was a happy moment for me as this was the first time Melody wanted to play. She is adjusting and getting some relief from her allergies. We are on our way to a healthier happier Melody. Her spay and medical needs will be taken care of in July and she will be ready for her forever home.

6/17 Update

Melody is a 16.5 pound golden fluffy happy girl. Despite her obvious confusion she managed to wag her tail.  She is blind but follows her ears and nose.  First things first, she pottied in the grass. She has definitely come with good potty manners, she also knows what potty pads are. That's good news. Melody has allergies as seen by some hair loss.  Melody is chewing her feet. The dog shelter started her on Benadryl for those allergies so we will continue this until Melody sees the Veterinarian. 
First things first, my pups were still waiting to meet Melody but dinner was more important. She ate every morsel of Sheldon's homemade food.  
Melody was fine with my dogs, I wish I could say the same for Sheldon.  Sheldon proceeded to fall in love and make a total pest of himself.
I decided that a bed next to mine was probably the safest and most reassuring for Melody. She doesn't seem to discriminate between day and night so daytime we try and keep busy with lots of yard time. Melody loves the grass, she is in heaven rolling in sweet smelling cool grass! My two and I are sitting down in the grass beside her and discovered the joy of listening to the wind chimes, birds and the leaves moving in the trees. Melody lifts  her head and sniffs the air.
Melody is very gentle and sweet, she takes treats nicely and claims her right to space and respect with a little growl. 
Before her arrival were removed things that were unnecessary and placed stuffed animals and dog beds at strategic locations...like the edge of the dresser so she wouldn't hurt herself. 
Melody follows my voice and only needs it to orient herself to what's happening. We are working on going up and down steps.  She is frightened and requires patience and time. So far carrying her is the way to go.

Melody is staying with Ruth in Milton, DE.

Good with Dogs

Save A Yorkie Rescue, Inc.  is a 501(c)(3) qualified non-profit organization operating on donations from Yorkie lovers who care. Please help by donating your tax deductible donations. 


mail your check or money order to
Save A Yorkie Rescue, Inc., 526 N. St. Cloud St., #602,  Allentown, PA 18104

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.
