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. 
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.
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 when keeping her on her strict diet... she has no other complications except she tends to drink a lot of water because 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.
Requested Adoption Donation: $295.00
Introducing Molly May - Born on July 9, 2009. Molly is just about 7 years old and she weighs about 5 lbs. but has a very short compact body.  She is a Parti-Yorkie. Google the name and you will find much more information about Parti-Yorkies. She is pee wee paper trained but will also go outside as well. She is small dog friendly but definitely likes a lot of attention. She is what we call a "Velcro girl" and is happiest when on your lap or in your bed.  It would be great if we could find her a new owner who will not leave her alone for too many hours each day as she is used to having a retired owner who spent a great deal of time with her. She is spayed, has had a dental cleaning, lost 5 teeth, and has 12 cysts removed from her body.  She is up to date on all vaccinated, has had a fecal exam and heartworm exam, both negative. Her little tongue hangs out of her mouth at times which makes her even more irresistible.
Lilly belongs to our President and she has quite a lot to say for being only three pounds. Enjoy!  Posted on Facebook.

Introducing Mayson  - He just turned four years young on 11/21/2016 and weighs a little over 6 lbs.  He has been neutered, vaccinated, micro-chipped and will have a dental cleaning before he is ready for adoption. He is 90% completely housebroken as long as you remember to take him out on a schedule.

We have been told he is a bit skittish but I have found him to be playful, animated  and extremely sweet; also a great lap dog. He doesn't like children, so best not to have any of them around. He tends to have an alpha personality so would only be compatible with a very laid back dog but would probably prefer being an only "child."

Please remember that Florida Yorkie Rescue does not adopt to families with children under the age of 12. Thanks.
Introducing Snicker & Doodle  - These precious and beyond adorable 3 1/2 year old male Maltese brothers weigh 5.10 lbs and 6.5 lbs. Because they are so deeply bonded they will need to be adopted together as they simply cannot even bear to be in separate rooms from one another.  They are very playful, extremely affectionate and love to spend endless hours sitting on your lap. They crave attention and will reward you with slurps and kisses. They will need help with their housebreaking because the previous owner worked long hours and was not able to walk them regularly. These babies need someone who is home more often than not who can get them on a walking schedule to set them up for success instead of failure. Is that special person you? They are small dog friendly but they do not like large dogs.  They have been micro-chipped, vaccinated, and are fecal and heartworm negative.  Better grab this precious pair before it is too late. We don't get dogs like this very often.

Introducing LADY and TIGGY (male and female siblings from the same litter). This brother and sister team just turned 5 years old. The little boy weighs about 4.9 lbs and his big sister weighs 8.9 lbs.

They are very sweet and affectionate and totally pee wee paper trained. They have rarely been outdoors so it may be a new experience you can share with them. They are good travelers in the car and seem very bonded.  They have the most adorable ears we have ever seen on a yorkie and we think this pair is very special indeed.

They have been updated with all vaccinations, spayed and neutered, are micro-chipped, fecal and heartworm negative and have just had their teeth cleaned.
Requested Adoption Donation: $450.00 for the pair
Introducing Oliver the Maltese - He is only 6 years old, born July 20, 2010 and weighs about 6 lbs. He arrived in desperate need of having his severe dental infection addressed which led to him having all 27 rotten and infected teeth removed.  Since then he is feeling so much better and has not missed a beat... he has a wonderful personality, is friendly to all small dogs and mostly housebroken. He will use pee wee pads too.

He is now updated on all vaccinations, neutered, micro-chipped and fecal and heartworm negative.  If interested please fill out the adoption application below to apply for this precious little boy.
Introducing Miss Lola - She is a three year old female weighing in at around 6 lbs. She was used as a breeder dog and has had at least one litter that we know of. She was then given to an elderly woman who was unable to care for her properly and Miss Lola bolted out the door and was promptly hit by a car on 11/23/16.

We arranged for her orthopedic surgery on December 14th for a broken femur which was successful repaired and she is now recovering. Then she will be spayed and received a dental cleaning and her vaccination.  She probably won't be available for adoption until February... but you can apply for her sooner to get the ball rolling for approval.

Introducing Sheldon - He is only 4years old and weighs less than 5 lbs.  He is a bit sky, can be skittish at times, but once he warms up to you he  will become your little velcro boy and will never want to leave your side. He will need some housebreaking tips but he seem pretty smart.  If you are concerned about the housebreaking issues, please click onto the belly band link on our navigation bar above and read all about them. They work wonders and will help during the housebreaking. Right now he is shaved down...so very little hair on his body, hence the pajamas to keep him warm. lol

He is now updated on all vaccinations, neutered, micro-chipped and fecal and heartworm negative.  He will have his teeth cleaned before he is adopted... so he will be updated on everything under the sun! :-)

SPECIAL NEEDS BABY - Holly is a Briewer (German) Yorkie which means she is try colored. She is approximately 3 years old and weighs 3.10 lbs. She was born on 10-03-2013.  She came from a breeder/mill situation and has had a history of seizures which are now under control with Phenobarbital. She gets along well with other dogs and is food motivated but other than that she will need help with social and human interaction. We are hoping to find a patient new owner who will work with her. She is not housebroken. She has had a very rough life and needs an angel to adopt her. She is spayed, up to date on all vaccinations and has had her teeth cleaned.

If you are interested in Holly, please complete the online adoption application. If the committee is interested in interviewing you, we will contact you immediately to discuss Holly's history in more detail.
