Rescue Me ID: 14-12-14-00407Twinkle (female)

Yorkie Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected 

    Twinkle and other animals were seized by Animal Control from a hoarder/breeder. She had 27 dogs and cats living in her home. Most of the animals were undernourished and all of them suffered from neglect. The dogs then spent a year living at an outdoor shelter. They were housed in a trailer where they sweltered during the summer and froze in the winter. She is about 2 years old and weighs 10 lbs. Due to her lack of socialization and having had no exposure to children, Twinkle would do best in an adult-only home. She will need a little extra love and attention to get used to living indoors and dealing with people on a daily basis. Since she ... (Read More)came from a rural shelter, she will need to learn house manners, leash walking, and basic obedience. Twinkle will also need time to get used to the noise and bustle of urban life. She loves to play and, given time, Twinkle might become the snuggly lapdog that you have been seeking. Can you give this sweet girl a warm indoor home with good food and lots of love? She will make it worth your while tenfold with a lifetime of adoration and kisses. Please apply to adopt Twinkle today. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-12-10-00141  (female)

Yorkie    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Low Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Deaf,
 Abused/Neglected, Fearful/Anxious 

    Meet Dessie! When we received a call from our Vet about Dessie we felt we had to give her a try. Dessie is unique. She has horrible skin which is improving, deaf and was not handled much during her life. Dessie also bites. We have learned how to handle her and she does willingly come to be picked up and petted now. She's 12 years old and weighs 12 pounds. Are you the person who can let her live her last years in comfort?

Rescue Me ID: 14-12-07-00260Missy (female)

Yorkie Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Needs Vaccinations 

    Missy is our 1st-ever puppy & we absolutely love her! She is 19-months old, grayish & recently groomed, but is not house-trained yet. We have to move soon & won't know if we can take her; besides she'd be alone during the day & that's not good for her. She is SO lovable, loyal, cuddly & friendly. I'd prefer a home with kid(s), yard & company during the day. My girls can email you pics, if interested. My heart is breaking just writing this, so please make sure you'd accept her as family! Thank you!

Rescue Me ID: 14-12-02-00311Squirrel (female)

Yorkie Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    This super sweet little dog is Squirrel. She is a mix of some sort of terrier (Yorkie?) and Chihuahua. Squirrel is about a year old and weighs less than 10 lbs. Her owners turned her in to a rural SC high-kill shelter after she had one stillborn puppy and her labor was not progressing. She was rushed in for an emergency C-Section. Sadly, all of her puppies died. Squirrel is friendly and likes people. This is a great little girl who needs a new home where she can spend her time with a loving person or family. Because of her small size, Squirrel probably should not be placed in a home with children under the age of 10. Since she comes from ... (Read More)a rural area, she might need a refresher course in house manners and leash walking. She is UTD on shots/monthly preventatives. Can she find a forever home with you? She will repay you with happy smiles, warm snuggles, and undying love. Please apply to adopt Squirrel today. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Yorkie in Virginia
    Yorkie Dogs can make good pets in Virginia if they match your IifestyIe. The Yorkshire Terrier is a cute, spunky little dog with a true Terrier temperament. Yorkies can be dog aggressive and wary of strangers. Yorkshire Terriers are loving and devoted to their people and do fine with children who respect them. Yorkies respond well to firm, consistent obedience training but may require patience when housebreaking. They do fine in an apartment but need to play and be taken on a daily walk.

lnteresting Yorkie Trivia Low-Cost Virginia Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Yorkies were bred to hunt rats in the mines of north England. Yorkies were probably developed by Scotsmen working in Yorkshire, England. Yorkies used to be much larger but have gradually been bred down to become a miniature breed.
