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 on daily meds... she has no other complications except she tends to drink a lot of water because if the medication 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.

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.

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. 
Requested Adoption Donation: $600.00 for the pair

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. (We will NOT split them up so please do not ask).

They have been updated with all vaccinations, spayed and neutered, are micro-chipped, fecal and heartworm negative and have just had their teeth cleaned. If interested please go to our website and complete the online adoption application.
