Harper is available for adoption.

He is 1 year old and weighs 8 lbs.

His adoption fee is $900.00.

Harper, at one and a half years old, is all energy and playfulness.  He is neutered, house trained, crate trained, and sleeps through the night. His original family gave him lots of love and care, but unexpected near-tragic events compelled them to turn to a series of temporary caretakers and then finally decide to surrender him to the rescue. So, Harper would dearly love to find a forever home where he can get the consistent loving care he deserves.

Harper is an exuberant pup!  He loves chasing toys, bringing them back, refusing to give them up, and running off all over again. He loves running after and tussling with his foster brother.  He loves car rides (and is learning not to bark at the dogs he sees on the sidewalk). He knows basic commands like “sit” and “look.”  Initially, when on walks Harper was hyper-reactive, barking loudly and at dogs and people. We are working with him to alter this instinctual fear, and Harper is making a little progress with this every day. 

Because Harper is under three, the Rescue requires that he be adopted to a home with a fenced yard.

Harper is staying with Tricia in Charlottsville, VA.

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. 

 

 ADOPTION AREA

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.
