Brooke is 7 years old and weighs 9 pounds. She came to Save A Yorkie Rescue as an owner surrender. She has dry eye and takes drops three times a day. We are still getting to know each other but so far, she is a sweet loving girl who likes her belly rubbed or having her toys thrown so she can run after them. Once in a while, she will jump on the couch to sit with me but mostly she likes being on the floor. She also likes her quiet time. She will go into the back bedroom and lay down in her bed for a nap. She sleeps all night and I'm usually the one waking her up. She has not had one accident since being with me. We go out periodically throughout the day. She loves to walk. She gets excited when she sees me take the leash off the shelf. We are working on "sit" while I hook her up. Otherwise, she is jumping on my leg with excitement. Car rides? Open the car door and she jumps in. It's obvious her favorite place was between the front seats sitting on the armrest, but she is fine with sitting in her car seat with her seatbelt on. Now the cons…she goes crazy when she sees another dog while we are walking. We are working on this but currently, others stay far away. And as with most young dogs, she is curious about my bird when he chirps or talks. She is a terrier, and a bird is prey to her. I don't have a cat, but I would guess it could be the same.
Brooke is staying with Cindy in Frederick, 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.
