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 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.

Introducing the Brothers - Take a look at these cuties. They are 4 year old BONDED brothers who weigh about 6 lbs each. I have been told that they are house broken but also pee wee pad trained. They are neutered, up to date on all vaccinations and have had a recent dental cleaning.
Introducing Nadine - She is an adorable little senior girl weighing approximately 5.6 lbs. Her age is approximately 9+ at our best guess. She had to have her remaining teeth removed and her little tongue hangs out a bit but it only adds to her cuteness. She has a very healthy appetite and a sweet temperament. She gets along with other small dogs.... She had a beautiful silky coat but her hair was recently trimmed... it is growing back in now. She CANNOT be crated or placed in a Playpen. She doesn't like to be confined in small spaces. If you must leave her alone which she is not a fan of, she would do best gated in a kitchen. Fortunately she is small enough so you can actually take her most places you go. She has now been spayed, had her teeth removed, been vaccinated, micro chipped and had some blood work done as well.
Introducing Baby Bella - what a precious little love bug this yorkie is. She is 5 years old and weighs 5 lbs. Unfrotunately she was attacked by an 80 lb dog who grabbed her and picked up her whole body by the neck with his massive mouth. Fortunately the owner was right there and managed to save Bella but realized that for her own safety she would have to be removed from the home. Bella was seen by the Vet and has some slight trauma of her neck and had a slight limp but appears to be doing extremely well considering her harrowing experience which could have easily be the end of her. Her teeth are badly infected and she will need to be spayed (on May 12) but then soon afterwards she will be ready for her new home. She is a very quiet snuggle bunny. She sleeps with her foster mom, cries at the door to go outside to do her business and is an all around fabulous yorkie. Her true personality has not yet emerged, that may take a bit but for right now she is doing very well. If you are interested in adopting her, please complete the online adoption application.
Introducing Tinker Belle - She is a one year old Yorkie mix (weighs about 7 lbs) that is as sweet as pie. She gets along with other dogs and is just about housebroken. She arrived with badly infected ears and a yeast infection all over her body as well as a flea allergy so a good bit of her hair is gone. She is currently on three different medications and beginning to feel much better. I can only imagine how painful her ears must have been. The Vet couldn't even get down into the canals because they were so swollen. She will be updated on all of her vaccinations and then spayed when she is a bit more stable. She will be looking for a new home and ready to go in about a week or so. Please complete our online adoption application if you are interested.
Introducing Zoey (Maltese) and Chickie (Yorkie). They are a bonded pair who needs to be rehomed due to their owner being very ill. we would like to keep them together.
Zoey is the Maltese. She is in full coat right now and just stunning. She is approx. 5 years of age and weighs 7-8 lbs. She is very affectionate and very sweet. Her only problem is that she thinks she is human. lol
Chickie is the yorkie. She is approximately 3 years old and weighs 5 lbs. She too is very sweet and very affectionate.
These dogs are housebroken (will use pee wee pads indoors as well as use the outdoors). They are very well behaved... not barkers, very affectionate and sweet. They are both spayed, vaccinated, and have had dental cleanings and are chipped.
Better photos coming soon.
