Buster Brown - He is a very sweet 7 year old boy (born 7/26/03) that weighs 7 lbs. We think he is an Affenpinscher/Yorkie mix. He has a beautiful coat and a gentle and timid spirit. He is afraid of thunder and loud noises so would do best in an all adult home without a lot of commotion. He also gets along quite well with other calm dogs. He is neutured, vaccinated and received a dental cleaning all this past June 2010. He is microchipped and very healthy. He does need a bit of help with housebreaking but will use pee wee pads. Loves to be outdoors but will need a secure fenced in yard or lania. Just the sweetest little boy you'll ever meet. He was dumped by owner because they purchased a younger smaller dog. So sad. They gave up an incredibly sweet little boy.

*If we do not have an FYR Representative in your area to do home visits, you cannot adopt from us. Please email us before filling out an application to determine if you are located outside of our area. Most of our yorkies are adopted to residents along the east coast of Florida. We do NOT have a Representative in Miami!
*Because the full past history of a rescue yorkie can never be known fully, it is our policy not to adopt to families with small children under the age of 12.
PLEASE READ BEFORE FILLING OUT AN APPLICATION
ADOPTION PENDING? Adoption Pending means we have chosen a family for that particular dog. The final adoption will go through based on a successful home visit. There are many variables involved in a home visit; a safe environment, compatibility with other pets, and compatibility with the new owners.
Please be aware that we do NOT ship our dogs. We only adopt within the State of Florida in certain areas where we have a FYR Representative to do the mandatory home visit.

Introducing Rigby - Rigby is a two year old male yorkie that weighs 6-7 lbs and was born on 10/13/14. He required Heart Surgery which was performed on January 28th, 2015 because of a birth defect. He was also born with a deformed leg.
His repaired heart is working well but he was left with a moderate amount of residual pulmonary arterial hypertension which requires daily meds.
He has now been neutered but his deformed leg cannot be repaired or removed. His leg doesn't bother him, there is no pain involved and he gets around very well.
He is a very sweet boy, affectionate, small dog friendly and active. It is just not advisable for him to engage in any very high energy activity because it could cause him to faint if his heart is not pumping normally.
The heart specialist said she would be happy to speak to anyone who might be interested in adopting this boy to explain what minor limitations he may have so that an informed decision could be made. Rigby has been with us for almost a year. He desperately craves a family of his very own. Would you be that special person?
Introducing Macey- Introducing Macey- She was born in May 2013 and currently weighs about 5 lbs. She is stunning, has a gorgeous coat of hair, very affectionate and the sweetest little pup you will ever meet. Unfortunately she was born with stiff back legs, which means her back legs do not work as well as they should. But that doesn't keep little Macey inactive; she runs, trots, climbs and stands throughout the day because in her mind she has no limitations. She was born this way and has learned how to navigate around her inconvenience. We diaper her at night because she doesn't have control over her bowels. She is spayed. She needs a special stay-at-home Mommy to adopt her. No small children. She loves other small dogs!
Introducing Magnolia - Magnolia is a Maltese Papillon mix we think. She weighs about 13 lbs. She arrived pregnant and heartworm positive. The puppies have all been adopted and her heartworms have been treated. She does have irritable bowel syndrom but it is easily manage when keeping her on her strict diet... she has no other complications except she tends to drink a lot of water so frequent walks will be necessary. She is extremely sweet and affectionate and will be your shadow 24/7.
Introducing Harley and Gracie - We have a pair of females, Harley is 7 and Gracie is 9. They both weigh around 5 lbs and their owner died. They are very bonded... when you see one, the other is right behind her. They had very infected gums and many rotten teeth which have now been addressed. They both have teeth remaining but lost many. They are up to date on all vaccinations, micro-chipped, fecal and heartworm negative and spayed. They are very sweet and pee wee paper trained. we were told they were Berkshire Terriers... and to us they look very similiar to Briewers or Parti-Yorkies (Google it for more information).
We will not split them up so please do not ask. They deserve to stay together. We had to spend a lot of money to get these babies healthy again and caught up to date on all medical needs.
Update: Gracie has been recently diagnosed witha collpasing trachea. she is taking pills twice a day and responding extremely well.
Introducing O'Malley - This tiny little Maltese is only 6 months old and barely weighs 4 1/2 pounds. He has a Liver Shunt which will require surgery but because of his size the surgeon wants to wait until the Spring before she does it. Before adoption he will have been neutered, up to date on all vaccinations, micro-chipped and his surgery will have been done. This little boy is going to cost us thousands of dollars to repair... his adoption request has not been decided upon yet.
If you would like to complete an adoption application for O'Malley we will hold them until he is ready to go to his new home. Thank you.
Introducing Zoey - Zoey is approximately ten years old. She is very short and very tiny but weighs a chunky 5 lbs. She has very very short legs and as cute as a button. She has also been diagnosed with Cushings Disease. If you are not sure what that is and you are interested in adopting her, we would suggest you contact your Veterinarian for a full explanation or Google it online. Her medication is given once a day and she seems perfectly healthy with no current issues.
She has a very healthy appetite and does well on the food we are currently feeding her. She has a tendency to gulp her food and water so care must be given to make sure she doesn't eat too quickly. She is also blind in one eye but sees quite well with her other one. She has a very round belly which is a side effect of the Cushings Disease so her diet must be monitored carefully so she doesn't gain anymore weight.
She is small dog friendly and very affection. She will bark for her food but is a relatively very quiet little girl. She just needs a new home filled with love.

Introducing Tobe - We are not sure how old Tobe is. He was found in a garbage dumpster put out on the street for garbage pickup. Since none of the neighbors had dogs, it is believed that someone drove by and dumped him in the dumpster in the early morning. We are so thankful that a good Samaritan found him, bathed him, fed him and called us so we could render medical care for him which he was in need of. Our Vet believes he is about 9 years old. He currently weighs about 6.5 lbs. but could stand to gain a little more weight.
He is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, fecal negative, heartworm negative, and has had his nails clipped. He goes in for a dental cleaning and extractions on March 12th for his bad teeth. He had fleas which caused him to lose some of his hair on his hindquarters and right now he has a bit of a funky chopped up hairdo (his hair will grow out and he has a gorgeous silky coat). He is very sweet, small dog friendly, will bark when he wants to go outside, is basically pretty quiet and loves nothing more than to be snuggled up by your side. This little guy is a total winner!
Introducing Macey - Macey is five years old now and weighs a little over 6 lbs. She still waits for a home to call her very own. She is a special needs yorkie, but don't tell her that because she has no idea she has any limitations. She has a huge personality, is affectionate and aims to please. She is always inquisitive, a great bed buddy and a TV companion.
Macey's birthday is May 15, 2013. She was born with a defect in her hindquarters. The Vet tried laser treatments, water therapy treatments and we took her to a few specialists. I am afraid that she is as she will be and nothing further that we know of can be done. Considering her handicap (which she has yet to realize she has) she gets around pretty well and can get her back legs up underneath her to push off of. She does not have any control over her bladder so she will need to be diapered. She also tends to get an occasional bladder infection however has not had one in a couple of years.
