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.
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.

Our dogs are not free. For an explanation of our requested Adoption Donations, click here
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 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.

Magnolia's journey since arriving can be found here.

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 Ginger - Ginger and her two sisters came from a poorly run breeding operation with their Mother Yorkie when they were only 4 weeks old. All three girls were born on March 15, 2018. Their Mother weighs about 10 lbs and we do not know which male in the home was the father but based on the appearance of the pups we think they are Morkies and their father was a Maltese. They will probably end up weighing about 10 pounds when they reach adulthood but at this time it is simply too difficult to say for sure.  These photos were taken when they were 6 weeks old. She is about 12 weeks old now and ready to be adopted now. You will be required to sign a "Spay contract."

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.

Introducing Bella - Bella was born September 2, 2010 and weighs barely 4 lbs. She has a beautful silky coat of medium length. She arrived emaciated but has gained a good bit of weight and is now healthy.  She doesn't have any teeth so her adorable little tongue hangs out of her mouth sometimes. She has a very minor hernia but our Vet didn't think it should be operated on. She also has a luxating patella in one back leg which causes her to hike her leg up every once in a while. Again, our vet did not think surgery was necessary as she is not in any pain and it doesn't seem to impede her daily life.  She is the sweetest thing ever, very small dog friendly and has the greatest little personality. She has been spayed and up to date on all vaccinations including microchip.... so she is ready to go.

Introducing Olaf - This stunning little boy is only 14 months old... born in March 2017. He weighs  4 lbs and is a little dynamo. He is almost completely cream colored... very unusual coloring.  He is neutered, up to date on all vaccinations, had he teeth cleaned and is microchipped, so this guy is ready to find his new parents. He is a bit of a snack food thief... so best be careful what food you leave lying around because he'll find it in a heartbeat but other than that he is very sweet. He HATES crates so don't even think about crating this boy. He is partially housebroken but does do his business on pee wee pads. He sleeps with his foster mom at night and makes a very cozy bed companion. lol He is very shy and a bit skittish so it will take him some time to warm up to his new parents. Having another small young dog in the house would help him enormously to come otu of his shell.

Introducing Sweetie - we have no idea how old Sweetie is. We would guess perhaps 7 or 8 years old. She still has some teeth which have been cleaned. She is spayed and up to date on all vaccinations. She has been microchipped as well.  She had a tumor on her neck and multiple mammary gland tumors, all of which were removed successful and all were tested negative for cancer... she she does not have cancer. All tumors were benign. She weighs 3.9 lbs so she is a tiny little one. She gets along with other dogs as long as they do not get in her face. She likes her space. She does not do well around rambunctious younger puppies.  She is now ready to meet her new family.... is it you?
