Finneas is available for adoption.

He is 1 year old and weighs 14 lbs.

His adoption fee is $800.00.

Finneas is a 19 month old puppy who is living his life to the fullest.  He loves playing with squeaky toys especially when he competes for ownership with his Yorkie housemates.

"Fetch" is his favorite game and plays it enthusiastically.  The ensuing tug of war with his playmate doesn't last long with one or the other quickly winning the prize.
Recent neighborhood fireworks (and neighboring town displays) did not seem to affect him at all although his Yorkie housemates absolutely hated it all.  
Finneas is not a barker in the house...but will bark while outside at other dogs and sometimes people.  We are working on his socialization and are starting to see some progress.  Recent guests to the house were a complete success with Finneas ending up asking to be picked up and loved by our guests.
He knows mealtimes ("wanna eat?") and has learned "wanna go out?".  He has spent quite a bit of time without his belly band on while we kept a watchful eye out for telltale signs of his needing to relieve himself...with success!  He has also learned to go to the pee-pad that the other Yorkies use. Now we are aiming for consistency.
He sleeps through the night in his little enclosure and waits patiently in the morning to be whisked away and taken outside.
He's great on a leash and no longer minds when his humans go out for a little while! When he arrived, he was frantic at being left alone... but no more.
We are hopeful that Finneas' forever home will have one or two other playmates for him to romp around with.  He's the kind of pup that thrives on activity.

Finneas is staying with Maryann and Michael in New Canaan, Ct.

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.
