Hello, I am Wessley. I just turned 4 in September and weigh a stout 13 lbs! I am new to the program and hail from North Jersey. My mother could no longer care for me due to medical issues, so now I am a Delaware boy. I am living with my new foster family and trying my best to settle in. I was pretty stinky but luckily, I got a fresh bath and now, I just need a haircut! I am still handsome, regardless! I am still very shy and often hide in my crate or under a table or bed. I now have a big yard to play in, but I would rather be walked by my person. I am still having some minor accidents in the house, but I am working on that. Although I have only been with my foster dad a few days, I can tell you that I love being on the recliner with him watching movies and being close. I am also still feeling out my new foster sister, who is a boxer. She wants to run and play but I haven't quite warmed up to her yet. Once I get comfortable with her, I probably won't hide as much! Thanks for reading about me, and can't wait to have an update next week to share my progress.
Wessley is staying with Robert in Newark, DE.

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.
