Second Chance is available for adoption.

He is 14 months old and weighs 11 lbs.

His adoption fee is $800.00.

Second Chance is a sweet, cuddly little guy.

We do not know the beginning of his life; Second Chance was found wandering alone with no identification or a microchip. Efforts to find his people were fruitless.

Chance does not mind grooming. He rides well in the car and is playful and curious.

Chance enjoys the backyard, laying in the grass and loves to chase after the birds and the squirrels. 

He is still a puppy in many ways. He is part acrobat; he will jump and roll around in play. He can start sliding off the couch or chair and always lands on his feet. Chance will steal your shoes and socks to cuddle with and scatters toys all over the house. Chance entertains himself throwing toys in the air, chasing them, pushing them off the furniture to jump on them. He will chase after toys and sometimes bring them back to you, other times he runs away with it.

Chance is very social; he gets along well with other dogs and loves people. He will chase after a cat, so we are not sure if they will get along.

Chance does not know many commands; we are making progress on “Sit” and “Stay.” He does come when called. Chance is affectionate and loves to be close to you. He gives kisses and will follow you everywhere, always at your feet.

Chance has received a clean bill of health from the vet and his neuter is scheduled for June 5th.

Chance is under three, young and active, the Rescue requires that he be adopted to a home with a fenced yard and be enrolled in some formal training classes.

Second Chance is staying with Dani in Chesapeake, 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.
