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 P.J. - This sweet boy was rescued from a high kill shelter. He is a senior at ten years old. He was dumped because the owners could not afford his dental care. His teeth were rotted and he could barely eat. Once he arrived with us, he had many teeth removed and is now pain free. He was so skinny we could see every rib protruding from his tiny body. (see video below). In 8 weeks he gained two whole pounds and now has a healthy weight. He loves to eat and is a very sweet boy. He will probably need to wear a belly band and have pee wee papers handy as he is not very housebroken. He weighs less than 5 lbs.
He also has a heart murmur and is taking heart meds twice a day. He is almost completely deaf and has some cataracts but still has significant sight. We are hoping a new family will step up to adopt this precious little boy. At ten years old he still has years ahead of him to enjoy. Please, no small children.
Adoption Donation: $125.00 (comes with one month's supply of medications)

Senior Dogs: Do you know that Yorkies typically live to be 15 years old? Some can live longer! Don’t miss out on a wonderful opportunity to enjoy one of these dogs just because of a number. If you are considered a senior citizen, please consider a dog that will be compatible with your age and home.
Introducing Susie - She is about 6 lbs and is currently busy with her three puppies. Poor Susie was pretty emaciated and neglected when she first arrived. We are working on getting her back to good health and she will be spayed and receive a dental cleaning before being adopted. Susie has lost one of her back legs. We do not know what the circumstances surrounding her amputation was but clearly this little adorable girl has had a very hard life. We are now looking for a loving home for her. She will be ready to go in December.

Introducing Macey- Introducing Macey- She is a 6 month old female puppy... weighing a bit over 4 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 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 has since been diagnosed with a fractured skull and a concussion.
UPDATE - It has been almost a month now and it appears that she has made a complete and full recovery. She is affectionate, playful and an all around sweet dog. She would make a great companion for someone. 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 Tigger - Please click here to read his entire story and see additional photos and videos. Click here for his youtube video. We are not exactly sure what happened to Tigger... he could have been hit by a car. He could have been abused. he could have been attacked by another dog. All we know for sure if that his jaw is broken in two places on either side of his face and he arrived with a facial wound. He will require extensive surgery to repair his jaw. He is now on pain meds and will be seen by our Orthopedic surgeon this week to schedule his surgery. Please pray for Tigger. He will probably not be available for adoption until Christmas at the earliest. In spite of his injury he has been very sweet to his foster mom and is an affectionate little boy. He weighs about 5 1/2 lbs. We are not sure of his age but he is not old.
Introducing Gracie- Please click here to read her entire story and see additional photos and videos.
Gracie was a breeder dog that was dumped off at an animal facility. She is 11 years old and would have been euthanized if we did not intervene. When she first arrived she was terribly sick with a very bad case of tracheal bronchitis and was hospitalized for almost a week. She has since recovered, is up to date on all her vaccinations, spayed, micro-chipped and has had a dental cleaning with multiple extractions. She is now in good health and just the sweetest little Diva you could ever imagine. she has a gorgeous coat and weighs about 5 lbs. She would prefer a stay at home Mommy because she really doesn't like to be left alone.
