Ryder is available for adoption.

He is 4 years old and weighs 9 lbs.

His adoption fee is $750.00.

Ryder has made great progress in the two weeks that he’s been here. The most obvious step forward is how comfortable he has become in the house and with all the other dogs. He is starting to get more comfortable on the leash but his biggest reluctance is not the leash but the different setting and environment that leash walking entails. He is very good about doing his business outside but then again he always has been since he first stayed with us. Also, he will not dash the door. He is very good about understanding that he is to go out the door unless we approve and are with him.

He loves being by our side whether we are in bed sleeping or watching tv or reading a book. He just loves being with his person. It’s his most endearing quality.

His manners are excellent with other people and he’s still very quiet. He is very intelligent and seems to understand immediately what we would like from him and he works very hard to please us. He is a true lover. He has fit into our family like a hand in glove.

Ryder is staying with Linda and Bob in Douglassville, 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.
