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.
WONDERING WHY YOU HAVEN'T BEEN CONTACTED YET?
* We are getting many calls asking for our address. We do not have a location that can be visited by the public. Our yorkies are all in foster care in private homes. Please fill out an online adoption application to be considered.
Some of you on our waiting list have called to say you continue to see new yorkies posted on our site for adoption and wonder why you have not been contacted about them.
Our goal is to find the perfect family for our dogs. If you have stated you have cats, we then must find a yorkie who is cat friendly.
If you have stated you want a dog that is totally housebroken, then we must wait until one becomes available.
If you have other dogs already living in your home, we need to find a yorkie that is pet friendly.
There can be many reasons why you may still be on our waiting list. Some applicants simply will not have the opportunity to adopt one of our rescue dogs. This is why we recommend that each and every applicant that applies continues their search for a rescue dog by also logging onto www.petfinder.com or www.adoptapet.com Thank you for your patience.
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 Susie - Susie was a mess when she arrived... in poor health suffering from "milk fever" and trying to nurse three puppies (whom have all be adopted). She was dangerously low in her calcium levels and her puppies had to be weaned early. Susie was a breeder's dog who was bred repeatedly in spite of only having three legs. We do not know why she lost her leg. It has taken us a few months, but her puppies are now gone and she is feeling much better. Most of her teeth are gone but she is still a little love bug, just wants to keep someone's lap warm. She can't be walked for long distances because of her amputated leg; better to just keep her in a penned area with pee wee pads when you are not home. She does not get along with other dogs... but cannot do too much damage since her teeth are gone. would suggest she be placed as an "only dog" with someone who has nothing but time to lavish on her. After the life she has had, she deserves no less. She is now spayed, up to date on all vaccinations and is micro-chipped.
Joy is one of the 5 dogs rescued from the Puppy Mill in Alabama. She is probably 2-3 years old and weighs 7.2 lbs. She is the most skittish of all five girls but in one month she has made major strides. We have seen her play with a toy and wag her tail when petted so we have great hope for this little one. She will need some housebreaking. She will pee on paper but there is so much she has yet to learn. She will need a patient owner who will show her unconditional love so she will understand that all humans are not cruel and abusive. She has been spayed, microchipped, vaccinated and has had a dental cleaning.

Introducing Tinsel - Tinsel is one of the 5 dogs that were rescued from the Alabama Puppy Mill referenced above. She is probably 5-6 years old and weighs 6.12 lbs. They are lucky to be alive and we feel honored to have them with F.Y.R. They have made major strides since arriving on 12/14/2013. Tinsel is a bit skittish but she has made great progress in one week. She wags her tail and will come with a little prodding... treats always help too! She will need some housebreaking. She will pee on paper but there is so much she has yet to learn. She will need a patient owner who will show her unconditional love so she will understand that all humans are not cruel and abusive. She has spent her last night out in the cold. We are spoiling her with warm blankies, bedding, and plenty of top quality food. She has now been spayed, microchipped, vaccinated and has had a dental cleaning. FOR YOUTUBE VIDEO - CLICK HERE

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!

Introducing Rusty - Rusty is a 6 year old male born in 2007 and weighs 6 lb. He is pretty much pee wee paper trained but will need to be monitored. A belly band would probably be helpful. He was an indoor dog. He is very bright and we feel confident that he can be trained. He has a stunning coat and an adorable little face. He has since been groomed since this photo was taken and updated photos will be posted soon. He currently has a condition called Dry Eye and he will require daily drops 2-3 times a day. He has been neutered, vaccinated, micro-chipped and vaccinated... so he is ready to go! He gets along with other dogs.

MACEY IS A SPECIAL NEEDS YORKIE
Introducing Mercy - Please click here to read her entire story and see additional photos and videos. We are not exactly sure what happened to Mercy... if she was hit by a car or hit in the head by something or someone else... but she arrived in very bad shape and was diagnosed with a fractured skull and a concussion.
UPDATE - Mercy has made a complete and total recovery! She is affectionate, playful and an all around sweet dog. She would make a great companion for someone. She is not a barker at all, very quiet and agreeable! She uses pee wee pads indoors but also goes outside as well. She is spayed, up to date on all vaccinations, has had a dental cleaning and is microchipped.

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!

She wants to be the Princess of the household and does not like other dogs. She is people friendly and very sweet. She prefers being a Velcro girl... follows you everywhere and is a great lap warmer.

Introducing Max - This little guy weighs 4 lbs but he is very compact and tiny. He could stand to lose a few ounces... he is 8 years old. He was surrendered due to aggressiveness towards a new baby in the house. It has been here for several weeks now and he is being treated with a medication that has imporved his disposition. He no longer growls and shows his teeth. He has mellowed out. He has begun playing with some of the other dogs. He will need an adjustment period with a new owner. He just needs to be loved. We are looking for an experienced yorkie owner due to his past. But he is turning into a very good boy while he is in his foster home. He is neutered, microchipped, has had a dental cleaning and is up to date on all of his vaccinations. Please give this little boy a chance?

Introducing Dollie and Mollie ~ They are 7 year old sisters who have been today since the day were born so we are not splitting them up. We must find a new owners who will take them both as they get very anxious when they don't see one another. They are very sweet but should have been named the "Velcro Girls" because they will follow you everywhere. The owner was ill and had to surrender her babies. They were loved very much. We were told they were housebroken but when his owner became ill they began using pee wee pads.
They are spayed, up to date on all their vaccinations, heartworm negative, micro-chipped and has had a recent dental cleaning. They look so similar that we have trouble telling them apart. They weigh around 6 lbs but the Vet says they are way too heavy... so they are now on a diet. An ideal weight would be 4.6 to 5 lbs. One word for these girls... A.D.O.R.A.B.L.E!
Introducing Misha - Misha was born on 12-20-2004. She is currently 9 years old. She was in deplorable condition when she arrived and had to be shaved down to her skin but what we found when the groomer was done, was an adorable precious little girl who felt so much better! We are pretty sure she is a Maltese/Yorkie mix. Her ideal weight should be around 5 to 5.6 lbs. When she arrived she only weighed 3.6 lbs. We have been feeding her small meals 3-4 times a day. She is completely pee wee paper trained. She even knows commands. She is very sweet and playful. Gets along with other dogs and has a lot of energy. Vet was surprised she was 9. She will be spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and have a dental cleaning before she is ready for an adoption.

In bone-chilling weather, an Alabama breeder kept 122 yorkies in outdoor cages."Puppies were being born and they were freezing to the bottom of the metal cages, and I think in all my years this is absolutely the worst thing that I have ever heard of," Stinson says. Animal control officers arrived at the home in Alabama on Tuesday and found the dogs outside in wired cages. They found two dogs dead, frozen to their wire cages and others shivering.
