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 9 lbs. 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 shei si ready for adoption.
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 available 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 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!
MAGNOLIA WILL NEED TO HAVE HEARTWORM TREATMENTS BEFORE SHE IS AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION.
Requested Adoption Donation: currently unknown
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!
Introducing Mr. Frodo - This little old man is still full of spunk! He is 12 years old and weighs only 5 lbs. Very alert. Hearing is pretty good. Vision is okay. Housebroken! Will bark when he needs to potty. Will use wee pads but loves to go outside. VERY good eater. Soft foods are best. No digestive issues so he can eat whatever new mom feeds her dogs. Active and playful with other dogs. Mr. Frodo is 7 lbs. of Senior Yorkie love. He is 12 years old but you would never know it since he is full of life and bounces when he runs. Surrendered by an owner who fell ill, he’s been a perfect gentleman in his foster home. Housetrained, he will let you know when he needs to go out. He loves to eat, nap, go for short walks or explore the yard, ride along in the car and get belly rubs. Mr. Frodo is not a big barker but he will let you know when you have visitors. He’ll sleep quietly on the foot of your bed, is small dog friendly and would make a loving companion. Prefer retiree or stay at home owner for Frodo.

The Malteses below are named Petal, Timmy and Toby. It would be great if we could find one family to adopt all three but since that is highly unlikely we are willing to adopt Petal and one of her brothers to one family and the remaining brother to another family. Petal is very shy and has anxiety if she is not around at least one brother so we will not adopt her without one of her mates so please do not ask. It is not going to happen. Period.
