Gertie is available for adoption.

She is 5 years old and weighs 12 lbs.

Her adioption fee is $500.00.

Gertie was abandoned by her previous owners who left her in the backward when they moved out. Her next-door neighbor rescued her and turned her in to SAYR. Gertie is adventuresome and curious. She has lost sight in her right eye but doesn’t let that stop her exploring the house and garden. She would love a big backyard where she can explore and sniff. Her little tail is always wagging when she meets the neighbor’s dog at the fence line. Gertie loves to be petted!   She is such a sweet little girl and follows foster mom everywhere.  She has a few appointments with the vet coming up and we’ll keep you updated after she is fully checked out from head to tail!

Gertie is staying with Patricia in Pittsburgh, PA.

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.
