Bohde is a small, 6 pound Yorkie, who is 11 years old. He was surrendered into rescue by his owner because of an inability to care for him. Bohde is a very active dog, who likes to play outside with foster brother so having a yard that is fenced in his new home to run and play is a must. He seems to be in good health as evidenced by a positive vet visit on July 9th. He has all his vaccines and is microchipped and his neuter is scheduled for July 15th. Bohde is edentulous (no teeth) and is a great eater and loves treat rewards and praise during our training sessions. He is working on potty training, and is doing very well! He gets along with other dogs, but is currently learning to trust humans a bit more. He is a very sweet, cute little boy, who is getting used to living in his new environment. I’ll keep you posted as I learn more about this playful, little boy!
Bohde is staying with Janet in LaVale, MD.

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.
