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.
Florida Yorkie Rescue has a 100% adoption rate! All of our dogs find incredible homes. 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. Our adoption fees are based on each dog's age and Vet bills.
FYR has a new Policy in effect starting April 1st, 2012 regarding Microchips. If a yorkie is surrendered to us that has already been microchipped then you will be responsible for paying the fees associated with re-registering that microchip within 7 days of the adoption date. If the dog has NOT been microchipped and FYR has to pay to have the dog chipped, an additional $25.00 fee will be automatically added to the adoption fee.
Introducing Rigby - Rigby is a one 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 involvedand 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 11 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 on daily meds... she has no other complications except she tends to drink a lot of water because if the medication so frequent walks will be necessary. She is extremely sweet and affectionate and will be your shadow 24/7.

Introducing Sofi - She is a senior female Maltese that tips the scale at five pounds. She just celebrated her 9th birthday but she acts and plays like a much younger pup. She gets along with other small dogs and has a wonderful personality and temperament. Nothing makes her happier than to follow you around the house. She arrived with a infected mouth and had to have her remaining teeth removed. We are sure she must be feeling a whole lot better and has a healthy appetite eating canned food. She is now current with all vaccinations and is ready to be adopted. Will that lucky person be you?
Introducing Toto - This precious little 5 lb. senior male yorkie is the most lovable little fellow. He is neutered and will be having a dental cleaning this week. It is likely he will lose his remaining teeth. Toto is 14 years old and has a mild collapsing trachea. The only time I have ever heard him cough is when he got excited at the Vet's office. He is currently being fostered in a quiet home where he sleeps most of the day. I have not heard him cough once. He has a healthy appetite and his heart is strong and healthy. He is heartworm and fecal negative. He received a Rabies vaccination which is required by law as well as a Bordetella vaccination, but the others were witheld because of his age. We don't feel he needs anymore vaccinations in his lifetime. He would make the perfect lap buddy. He is living among a few others dogs but seems fine with them smelling him from time to time. He is very sweet and will wag his tail when he sees you coming. He does have cataracts but appears to still see well. This old boy just needs someone who will care for him in his senior years. Is that special person you?
Baxter is a small male yorkie that is approximately 1 1/2 years old. He is scheduled for surgery on both hind legs for severe "luxating patellas." Once he has recovered he will be ready to find his new home. He is neutered, up to date on all vaccinations, fecal and hearworm negative and micro chipped. This precious little boy has been bounced around from one owner to the next. We need to find him a permanent family who will commit to him permanently.

Introducing Caylin - She is a 4.6 lb. senior female Yorkie that arrived sadly neglected. She has sparse hair on her head and almost no hair on her entire body. We have her on medication currently for a thyroid deficiency and we expect that her hair will grow back. She will go to the Vet tomorrow for a dental cleaning and may lose her remaining teeth. She is a very sweet little girl and loves to be cuddled. She would make a perfectly wonderful lap dog, TV buddy and sleeping companion for those who want a quiet low maintenance dog. At this time she is a bit nervous and can be a little snappy if you do soemthing she doesn't like... nail clipping, etc. But once that is over she is a perfect little angel. She has suffered for a long time... now she needs someone who will treat her like a princess... will you open your heart and home to this sweet Senior?
