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 Magnolia - 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 10 lbs and is very young, we would guess under the age of 3 years old. We soon discovered that she had Heartworms AND she was pregnant. We do not know who the father is (scoundrel) and at one time we thought Magnolia was going to lose her puppies but with great medical care she had her puppies and is thriving. We think she is a Maltese and Papillon mix. Her Heartworm treatment has now concluded and she is ready for adoption.
Introducing Rigby - Rigby is currently 11 month old and weighs 6 lbs. (born 10/13/14). He required Heart Surgery which was performed on January 28th, 2015.
We took him in to see his heart specialist lon June 10, 2015. His heart is working well but he was left with a moderate amount of residual pulmonary arterial hypertension. He will probably need to be on hearts meds for the rest of his life.
He has now been neutered but his leg cannot be repaired or removed due to the length of the surgery required. His leg doesn't bother him, there is no pain involved. He has gotten used to living with it the way it is.
He is a very sweet boy, affectionate, small dog friendly and active. It is just not advisable to allow him to run along the beach or to engage in any very high energy activity because it could cause him to faint if his heart is not pumping normally. I point blank asked the Vet if he could drop dead during activity and she said no, the likelihood of him fainting was more probable.
He will need a very special family to adopt him. He has so many positive attributes but at 11 months old and almost 6 lbs. he needs his permanent home. 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.

Introducing Macey- Introducing Macey- She is almost two years old (born in May 2013)... weighing about 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 is spayed. She needs a special stay-at-home Mommy to adopt her. No small children. She loves other small dogs!

Introducing Angel - She was born October 28, 2014 and at one year old she weighs approximately 4 lbs. She has a great appetite, eats well and has blended right in with her foster Mom's fur-family. She is quiet, agreeable and not at all alpha. She slept in her bed on the floor next to her foster mom's bed and curled up, went to sleep soundly, and never got up in the middle of the night. She has been doing her business outside with the others and so far no accidents. We feel she will be easy to train since she seems to be somewhat trained already. We have only had her for a short time but so far we can say she has a very sweet personality and should make a precious addition to an adult family. She will be spayed on November 16th and then will be available for adoption. (Before adoption she will be spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, bathed and groomed) If you are interested please complete out adoption application. Thanks.

Introducing Pyper - She was born February 18, 2015 and at 8 months old she weighs approximately 6.6 lbs. She has a great appetite, eats well and has a beautiful silky coat. She has been brought up to date on all of her vaccinations, is microchipped and has been spayed so she is ready to meet her new family. She LOVES other small dogs and will play endlessly with them. She is a ball of energy as most yorkie puppies are and can be verbal at times when seeking your attention. She loves going for walks, is almost housebroken (has an occassionaly accident and will need a patient owner to help her with that) and she is very affectionate. She does tend to be a bit skittish at times and will not always come when called... but all of these minor issues are easy to deal with. If you are interested in adoption her please complete the online adoption application. Thanks.
Introducing Bailey Cream -
This little very friendly 5 year old boy is a Yorkie/Maltese mix. He was surrendered by an owner who simply didn't want him. He arrived in deplorable condition, heavily matted and very emaciated. He is on the mend now and is being fed many small meals a day. He is currently a little over 4 pounds but should probably gain a pound or even two. In spite of his history he is very sweet and his tail wags constantly. He is friendly with other small dogs and loves lap cuddles. He appears to be housebroken with very few mistakes but he only just arrived. He is heavily stained by lying in his urine soaked crate for days on end but in another few months this diamond in the "ruff" will be a real "show stopper!" He will need all of his vaccinations, to be de-wormed and also needs a dental cleaning. All he wants for Christmas is a new family to love him. Is that you?
