Miz Fiona is one of our many Forever Foster's.  Will YOU Sponsor Miz Fiona?

A Forever Foster is a dog that is either older, has a medical condition or a socialization issue and seem to be unadoptable only because we receive no applications for these dogs thus we assume no one wants to adopt them.   Save A Yorkie Rescue will not euthanize a dog for these reasons and the dogs remain in rescue to live out their lives with their forever foster family.  Their remaining years (no matter what age they are) are spent being well taken care of and loved in their forever foster homes.   Save A Yorkie Rescue pays for all of their vet bills, including all medications they may be on, grooming, food/treats if on a special diet and any supplies one of these dogs may need. 

Save A Yorkie Rescue is able to provide for our Forever Foster's, only through the generous donations we receive from all of the Yorkie lovers out there!

Miz Fiona is 9 years old and came into rescue in December 2015.  She was pulled from a Puppy Mill and arrived with 4 puppies. She was extremely thin and had horrible ear infections. Even so, she was a great momma but sadly 2 of the pups soon passed away, through no fault of her own.  They had terrible liver shunts (a hereditary issue) and were too young for surgery.  Fiona took wonderful care of her 2 remaining puppies and always was watching them.  Fiona had issues of her own though.  Save a Yorkie had her spayed, got antibiotics for her ears, and had a dental done (she had 23 teeth removed).  She also suffers from allergies and requires a special food and a medication that helps with her itching.  Like many puppy mill dogs, she was afraid of everything and everyone.  She ran from her foster mom and dad, would not tolerate a leash, and would panic in new situations/surroundings.  She also was lost with out having puppies to care for (as a mill dog she constantly had litters) that she started to treat her toys as puppies.  She would corral them and obcessively put them in her bed.  She even carried them outside with her (as seen in the photo above).  Those days are behind Fiona now.  It took her about a year but she now comes to her foster mom and excitedly asks to sit on her lap.  What a big step for her!  She enjoys being outside in warm weather and sun bathing.  She is even learning to play with some of her foster brothers and sisters! 

Miz Fiona will live out the rest of her life being well taken care of, spoiled, and loved in Milton, PA, with Tiff, her forever foster parent. 

Thank you so much to the wonderful people that are Sponsoring Miz Fiona!

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.
