Banjo is available for adoption.

He is 1 year old and weighs 11 lbs.

His adoption fee is 800.00

Little Banjo came to us after 10 days in a city shelter. Because of that, he is very happy and content in his little green bed inside an open-door crate. It is his comfort and security for now. That being said, he spends most of his day out of his crate, enjoying following his foster brothers around and spending time in his big boy bed. He weighs about 11 pounds and is just a bit over a year old. He slept the first night all the way through in his crate, again with the door open. Last night, he left the crate and spent a few hours snuggled up on the human bed and happily allowed me to rub his belly. 
He is a good little boy, but does have some behavior issues that I believe will subside once he becomes more trustful of his new situation and learns some commands. If you physically try to move him either from his crate, or something he is totally involved in, like barking at the deer, (he has a deep little bark!) he will turn and growl and give a warning snap. This is only with humans, however. The dogs can easily walk up to him in his green bed and he has no reaction. I did discover yesterday that he loves to have his hair brushed, and I found I could reach into his open door crate with the hair brush and he happily allowed brushing. He enjoyed having a bath yesterday. 
He walks wonderfully on a leash, jaunty and leading the way! He is daily, in the 2 days we have had him, learning how different the city is from the country. There is a lot of potential in this little puppy! He will have his vet appointment on June 23 and a groom on July 5.

Banjo is staying with Robin in Chesterfield, 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.
