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 - Magnolia has delivered her pups! 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 died.
Introducing Rigby - Rigby is currently a 4 month old puppy (born 10/13/14). He required Heart Surgery which was successfully performed on January 28th, 2015 which he is recovering from. He also was born with a deformed leg. He will have his stitched removed on February 11 and then 4 weeks later he has an appointment with his heart specialist for a final assessment. Then we will discuss what options we may have with Rigby's deformed leg. Rigby will not be avialable for adoption until all of these issues have been dealt with. Keep posted for the latest information or log onto his page by clicking here.
At 4 months old Rigby weighs 3.3 lbs. We have not yet decided on the requested adoption donation. Thank you.
Introducing SNOW - she was born November 10th. We received Snow's Mom when she was pregnant with Snow and her brother Klondike. Magnolia was very sick and still needs treatment for heartworms but the puppies are healthy, happy and now ready for their new home. They are still in "pee wee paper training." We are not sure how large they will get because we do not know what kind of dog the father was. Magnolia the mom, weighs about 10 lbs now. Snow has fluffier hair that curls a bit and she has streaks of pale apricot running through her coat similar to her Mother's. The puppies have received their first set of shots and a spay/neuter contract will have to be signed with Florida Yorkie Rescue in order to be approved for adoption.
Introducing KLONDIKE - He was born November 10th. We received Klondike's Mom when she was pregnant with him and his sister Snow. Magnolia was very sick and still needs treatment for heartworms but the puppies are healthy, happy and now ready for their new home. They are still in "pee wee paper training." We are not sure how large they will get because we do not know what kind of dog the father was. Magnolia the mom, weighs about 10 lbs now. Klondike has a smoother flat coat and currently is pur pale cream colored.The puppies have received their first set of shots and a spay/neuter contract will have to be signed with Florida Yorkie Rescue in order to be approved for adoption.

Introducing Macey- Introducing Macey- She is almost one year 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!
MAGNOLIA WILL NEED TO HAVE HEARTWORM TREATMENTS BEFORE SHE IS AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION.
Requested Adoption Donation: $145.00
Introducing PHOENIX - she is a 7 lbs female senior yorkie that is 12 years old. She arrived with huge mammary gland tumors and needed pretty serious surgery to remove them all. The surgery was a success. None of the tumors were found to be Cancer and she has now made a complete recovery. She has had a dental cleaning, she is spayed, up to date on all vaccinations and micro-chipped. Now she just needs a new home to call her very own. She tolerates other dogs well. She loves to sleep. She does love to go outside to do her business and will bark at the door to let you know she wants to go. She does need to go out often though so sometimes we will stick a diaper on her because she will dribble at times. But if you are home more often than not, this can be easily managed. She has a collapsing trachea but does not cough unless she gets very excited or gets tired on long walks which we do not recommend. When she is indoors she does not cough at all. She can still hear and see well and is affectionate. All she really needs is a peaceful home where she can spent her golden years! Do you have a heart big enough to take her in?
Requested Adoption Donation: currently unknown
Introducing Priscilla - Priscilla is now 6 months old, born August 4, 2014. She weighs a tiny 3.12 lbs. She and her sisters arrived when they were barely 4 weeks old and were all in critical condition, needing blood transfusions to survive. They were covered with hundreds of ticks and fleas and dehydrated. Her sisters have all been adopted but Priscilla remained behind until I was comfortable with her weight gain and good health, plus I wanted to make sure my Vet spayed her before she was adopted. So here she is, up to date on vaccinations, micro-chipped and spayed and now available to be placed with loving new owners, preferably someone with previous yorkie experience. She is small dog friendly only! She needs a stay at home Mom so she can learn proper potty etiquette and a home with no children (or large dogs or cats). I am in love with this little one so I am going to personally decide who I adopt her to. It is a tough decision for me but the the more that leave here the more that we can take in and she deserves someone who will give her 24/7 attention. She is after all, a tiny little perfect doll baby! (Oh and she has a long tail - not docked)

Introducing SAMBA - She is five years old and weighs 4.7 lbs. She will turn 6 on April 4th. She is an adorable little girl who would do best in a home where she will receive a lot of attention. When she first arrived she was very shy, but has seen been triving and coming out of her shell with her Foster Parents.
She is pee wee paper trained (80%) and will do her business outside as well. With a little training we feel she could be totally housebroken. (We were told by previous owner that at one times she was). She does have "Dry Eye" in her right eye and will need drops twice a day for the rest of her life. Her eye drops are very inexpensive.
She has been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, teeth are clean and she is ready to go!
Snow and Klondike are so bonded, the ideal situation would be to get them adopted together!
Requested Adoption Donation: $300.00
Introducing TUCKER - what a sweet little boy this guy is. Tucker is only 3 years old. We are not sure what kind of a mix he is, but we suspect he does have some Westie in him and he does shed a bit so if you need a hypoallergenic non-shedding dog, Tucker is NOT for you. He weighs 10.6 lbs but needs to lose a bit of weight. He is however a sturdy little dog and very small dog friendly. He loves playing with toys and is very affectionate. He does not however get along with children. They make him nervous so we will be placing him with an adult only family. He is completely housebroken and will be receiving a dental cleaning and all of his vaccinations on Friday, February 20th. He is fecal and heartworm negative as well. If you are looking for a well rounded and well adjusted little love bug that is completely housebroken, this little boy is for you. He is just about perfect in every single way!
Requested Adoption Donation: $395.00
Introducing HERSHEY - we named him Hershey because he is barely larger than a Hershey chocolate Kiss! This tiny little fellow is the smallest yorkie we have ever put up for adoption, barely tipping the scale at 2.6 lbs. He is neutered and up to date on all of his vaccinations. Unfortunately he had to have all of his teeth removed because of severe decay. Since his surgery he is feeling so much better and his appetite has increased. He is active, loves to play and we estimate him to be anywhere between 6-8 years old. He is small dog friendly and pee wee paper trained although his Foster Mom has him almost completely housebroken. Hershey will only be placed in an adult only home... someone with past yorkie experience. If you work all day this dog is not for you. He needs companionship and has not had an easy life.
Requested Adoption Donation: $425.00
Introducing TAYLOR - What a cutie-pa-tootie this little doll baby is! She is 5 years old and weighs a tad over 4 lbs. When she arrived she had a yeast infection in her skin that was so severe she had scratched all of her hair completely off her body and around her eyes. She has allergies and is now on a medication called Apoquel and no longer scratches. Her hair is slowly growing back (please see the before and after photo the left). She has one eye that is slightly smaller than the other from an old injury. She is a very active and happy little dog, affectionate, gets along with other small dogs, loves to play with toys, rides well in a car and is almost completely houserboken... has had very few mistakes! She will need a special owner to keep her on the medication. She also has a bit of separation anxiety so best to be an owner who is around more often than not! .
Adoption Donation: $ 425.00
Introducing Mr. Frodo - This little old man is still full of spunk! He is 12 years old and weighs only 5 lbs. Isn't he handcome? We have been told he is completely housebroken and crate trained. He gets along well with other dogs, tolerates the current owner's two cats (they don't pay attention to him and he got bored chasing them). He is very well adjusted and low keyed. Some days he is a bit arthritic but other than that he seems to be doing well. He will desperately need a dental cleaning whcih of course we will take care of. First owner had him for 8 years, then second owner had him for 4 years, but that owner became ill and so this little guy went back to first owner who is in turn surrendering him to us. Let's find this sweet man his final home, shall we? More photos and additional information coming soon.

Introducing Lily Belle - this adorable little dumpling weighs a 3.12 lbs and is only three years old, born in July 2011.
Notes from Foster Mom: She's 4 pounds of gorgeous. Very loving, gives kisses easily, lap dog, but very active (think monkey, pogo stick), very agile and quick stepped/fast like a whirlwind! Territorial of her interior space and possessive of her "people". Has dominance issues. Loves to play with toys and loves human interaction. Plays rough with toys! Plays fetch! Not timid, very self assured. Sleeps through the night. No food issues--on special food. Is vocal, needs to learn patience. Does not like to be left alone; some minor anxiety issues when left alone in the house. If placed with another dog, dog must be docile and of the same size. Would not recommend placing in household with more than one dog . Preferably with a family with no dogs and Yorkie experience.

Introducing Sophia Rose - She is a real sweetheart, weighing in at around 7 lbs and is approximately 3-4 years old. She seems shy at first, but once comfortable will play with other small dogs. This morning she was bouncing around with the other dogs here, her little tail spinning like a rotor blade... so cute to watch. She loves to go on walks, is good in the car and is also a good watchdog. She is pretty much housebroken but does have a few accidents at times. She would prefer an owner who doesn't leave her alone for too long, so if you are an active person who is always out playing Golf and Tennis, shopping and socializing, this little girl is probably not for you. she is spayed, heartworm and fecal negative, vaccinated and has recently had a dental cleaning.
