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 Nicky - Nicky is a young dog (4 1/2 - 5 lbs) who should probably be an "only" dog. He is unpredictable. He gets along with some of our older laid back dogs but the younger puppies; not so much! He is about one year old. He is neutered, microchipped and up to date on his vaccinations. He is healthy and understands the word "kiss" because he will give you one every time you ask. We think he was probably beaten by his previous owner as he frightened around newspapers and other items that could be used to hit him. He was dumped at an animal facility and we rescued him minutes from euthanasia which is why we named him Nicky cause we saved him in the "nick of time." He was deemed aggressive but he is really only afraid of someone hurting him. When put on a mild sedative he calms right down and is very easy to pick up, handle, hug, kiss, stroke, pet and cuddle. He needs to learn how to trust that peop,le will not hurt him. An experienced alpha owner who has time to work with him would be ideal. We are working on the potty issues. I adore this little guy and will be very picky where he goes. He needs a major break!
Introducing Noonie. We estimate Noonie to be around 4-5 years old. He lived in a household with 7 other dogs and an elderly woman who could no longer take care of her precious pets. He was somewhat neglected but has gained a bit if weight now and is thriving since he arrived. He now weighs approx 3.6 lbs and doesn't need to gain anymore as he has a very tiny frame and short legs. He is an active little boy, very friendly with small female dogs (doesn't much get along with males) and has lots of energy. He will need to learn some housebreaking but he will go on pee wee paper. He has been neutered, has had a dental cleaning, vaccinated, and is heartworm negative and fecal negative. He is also microchipped. He needs a patient owner who is home more often than not. He loves to keep you company so if you are looking for a buddy you can take along with you everywhere you go, Noonie is your boy! He smiles and dances and has a winning personality. A great companion, lap warmer and bed buddy! What more could you ask for? Because of his tiny size, no families with children.

Introducing Macey- Introducing Macey- She is almost one years old (born in May 2013)... weighing about 4.6 - 5 lbs. She is stunning, 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 will be spayed before she is adopted. She needs a special stay-at-home Mommy to adopt her. No small children. She loves other small dogs!
Adoption Donation: Email us.
Introducing Priscilla. She was born on August 4, 2014. At the age of 8 weeks she barely weighs 1 lb. She is going to be very tiny. She almost died when she first arrived because of neglect but after careful and constant medical care and attention, she is thriving. We could not be more pleased. Because of her very tiny size, she will need an adult only home... no children. She will require a stay at home Mom and careful attention to make sure she continues to thrive. She will not be released for adoption until she is at least 3 months old, possibly longer.
Introducing Mini. She is 6 months old and she weighs 4 lbs. She was born on August 30, 2014. She has a beautiful coat and an adorable little face. She unfortunately suffered a broken leg and was surrendered by her owners due to finances. Her surgery was performed on Monday, October 20th. Her leg has been successfully repaired. She will now need about 8 weeks to recover. She has been recently spayed and micro chipped as well as brought up to date on all vaccinations. She has a great personality, high energy, affectionate and a little cuddle bug. You will need to help her learn basic house breaking manners. Right now she is pee wee paper trained because she needs to be confined during her healing process.

Introducing May-Ling - This very young 7 lb. yorkie mix was dumped to fend for herself. She roamed the streets for two weeks. Strangers would sometimes feed her. Then one day a Good Samaritan noticed she was injured. Her ankle was dislocated and she received a blunt force injury to her leg. We will never know how she sustained this injury or if it was intentionally done to her. When she arrived she was filthy,matted and full of fleas (see the before photos). She had orthopedic surgery on Monday October 20 and her leg has been successfully repaired. She will spend 8 weeks in recovery before she can be adopted. She will be spayed, vaccinated and chipped before she is ready to go. She is a real beauty and we are glad that better days lie ahead for her. If you would like to apply for May-Ling please fill out the online adoption application on our website.

Introducing Magnolia - Magnolia is pregnant! Another precious little girl dumped in the street to fend for herself. She waited two days for her owners to return. She is the sweetest friendliest dog there ever was. We just adore her. When she arrived she weighed 9 lbs. We soon discovered that she has Heartworms AND she is pregnant. We do not know who the father is (scoundrel) and at one time we thought Magnolia was going to lose her puppies but she is still pregnant and with great medical care she is thriving. We think she is a Maltese and Papillon mix.
Update - Magnolia had four puppies, two have died.

Introducing Sushi. She is a young female... probably around 2 years of age. The condition of this sweet dog was deplorable upon her arrival. She was so severely matted that her front leg would not extend. Our groomer had no choice but to shave her down but did manage to keep some hair on her back. Her hair will grow back and she will become the diamond she was always meant to be. She has a very sweet and friendly personality. Everyone who sees her comments on what a darling little dog she is. She is a Maltese, or a Maltese mix.
She is now spayed, up to date on all vaccinations, microchipped, fecal and heartworm negative and is ready to go!

Introducing Bailey Blossom - She is a 7 year young Maltese who is currently very thin and weighs a tiny 3.6 lbs. She will need to gain a couple of pounds to be at a good weight. Her dental cleaning is scheduled for December 5th and may be the cause of her not eating well as her teeth are not in good condition. Upon her adoption, she will be up to date on all vaccinations, spayed, receive a dental cleaning, and will heartworm and fecal negative as well as micro-chipped. She is friendly but shy. Her foster Mom says she has not heard her even bark yet. We will post more information as it becomes avilable.
Introducing Beau Bear - We are not sure how old he is but our best guess is approxiately around 5 years. He is very tiny, weighing in at 3.6 lbs. He needs a quiet home as he doesn't like a lot of activity. He is very quiet, rarely barks and a very sweet affectionate little boy. He has a beautiful long silky coat. He will need some housebreaking help but is pee wee paper trained. He has had a dental cleaning and lost 7 teeth. He has grade 3 luxating patellas as many of these toy breeds have but they cause him no discomfort and he gets around quite well. he is up to date on all o fhis vaccinations, is neutered and microchipped. He is heartworm and fecal negative and looking for his new home. He will not be placed in a family with children.

Magnolia (see her photo below) had four puppies on November 10, 2014. Two did not survive, but a little boy and little girl did. We named them Klondike and Snow. We are not sure what breed their Mom is, perhaps a Maltese/Papillon mix? and we do not know what she was bred with. what we do know is that the puppies are adorable. They are now four weeks old (as of December 8th) and they have thick cream colored fur. They are very sweet and learning how to eat on their own now.
Their Mom, Magnolia has heartworms and will need to be treated for them once the puppies are weaned. We are not sure when the babies will be ready to be adopted but the earliest will be at ten weeks old, possibly a bit longer. New owners will have to sign a spay/neuter contract to be done at the appropriate age.
We do not know how large these puppies will grow. The mom weighs about ten pounds.

Introducing Rigby - Rigby is currently an 11 week old puppy (as of 12/8) and will need heart surgery before he can be adopted. He also has a deformed back leg that he cnanot use. It doesn't cause him any trouble and at this point we will be leaving it alone and focus on his herat issues first. Hopefully his heart can be corrected so he can live a long life. Keep posted for the latest information or log onto his page by clicking here.
We do not know when he will be available to be adopted. He will probably end up weighing the size of an average yorkie (6 to 8 lbs). We have not yet decided on the requested adoption donation. Thank you.
