Twinkee is available for adoption.

She is 6 or 7 years old and weighs 8 lbs.

Her adoption fee is $350.00.

Twinkee was found as a stray on streets of New York and was badly matted and had fleas. They shaved all her hair, but it is growing back now. She is a sweet girl who loves people!  Twinkee had her spay surgery and also had mammory tumors removed. The good news is all the tumors were biopsied and all the tumors were benign! Her vision is questionable although she can see.  So far, we have not heard one sound coming from her, and that's a real plus! We’re not sure of her age but our vet estimates that she is between 6 and 7 years old because her teeth are good. She is a cutie!  Twinkee is feeling more comfortable in our home every day. She is learning her way around the house and loves being in the yard. Her tail wags all the time and she likes to give little kisses. Twinkee is pretty little girl and gets along with the other dogs in our home. We our enjoying having Twinkee in our home!

Twinkee is staying with Ginny in Kneedysville, MD.

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.
