Maximus is available for adoption.

He is 10 years old and weighs 11 lbs.

His adoption fee is $450.00.

Maximus was born July 22, 2013, and had lived with his human family in Chesapeake for at least the past few years – unsure of his first 7-8 years. Over the past two years Max has had some medical issues, most notably ear polyps (otitis), which seemed to get minimal treatment, leading to other challenges (patella luxation, rear hip hitch, osteoarthritis) which also included peeing in the house. He has been neutered. 

Around April 10th 2024, Max’s family brought Max to his Vet Doctor to be euthanized. The doctor declined, then took Max off the family’s hands.  The family signed Max over. Vet Tech Sara took care of Max while SAYR was contacted and marshalled resources to get Max to a foster family.  

Maximus has some medical issues like ear polyps, he has allergies and needs a dental badly.  We are taking care of all of Max's medical needs.

Maximus is staying with Lynn and Michael in Marlborough, CT.

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.
