Oakley is available for adoption.

He is 5 years old and weighs 6 lbs.

His adoption fee is $700.00.

This sweet little boy came to us on Sunday July 17. He was brought to us from one of the volunteers with Pilots and Paws. 
Oakley was an owner surrender,  who could no longer care for him, becasue he moved into an assisted living home. Oakley is about 5 years and 7 months old and weights 6 and 1/2 pounds. 
Oakley has been a bit shy and timid, so we are taking things slowly. He was moved around a bit before coming to us, so I'm sure he's confused. He is fine around our dog friendly and foster friendly cats. He's also getting along fine with his foster sister Stella although he doesn't "play" or engage with her to much.
Oakley loves walks and just started running around the fenced yard. I'm not sure how much exercise he's had in the past, he runs like a bunny. :) 
We were told he is afraid of thunderstorms, loud noises, didn't like grooming and was not potty trained. So far, this little man has not had one accident in the house !!! Yippie !!! We use a belly band for now, but I think it'll be coming off soon. He was also fine with his bath and getting brushed. He's great in the crate when we are gone and even retreats to it once in awhile while we are home.
Oakley has not been eating much. He won't eat anything crunchy. He was sent with a bag of Nudges, soft treats, which was all he would eat until I bought him some canned food which he seems to love. The vet will be checking his teeth on his Aug 13 appointment. 
We can't wait to see his little personality come out in the coming weeks. He seems to be so sweet natured!

Oakley is staying with Trisha in Canandaigua, NY.

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.
