All dogs listed here are available for adoption from Yorkie Rescue Houston.  Our goal is to ensure our rescued pets go to their forever home and never end up back in the system.  To that end, an application is required on all potential adopters.   Our adoption fee varies by dog.  We accept electronic funds via VENMO or Paypal, or cash only.

Puppies too young to be spayed/neutered are available for Foster-to-Adopt only.  A FTA contract is required.

Ellwood has been with us for 6 weeks and is still fearful.  He is mistrustful of men in general.

He was with an inexperienced foster and sensed that and took advantage of it.  He dominated them.  He snapped when they tried to get him 'off the couch'  

He is a fear 'nip and run' boy.  He is NOT SUITABLE for an apartment, as this will require leash walks and he is a flight risk until he learned to love/trust you.

He may not be ready for a while.  


This boy is in desperate need of a groom and quiet decompression home.  He's 'shell shocked'  He at some canned food at the vet, but has refused kibble so far.

He nipped (in FEAR, not aggression) his handler during pickup from his hell-hole.  He has bilateral ear infections.  He's received a 'slow release' anti-fungal and will need to return to the vet next week for a repeat application.  

His neuter appt is set for DEC 22 and you must be able to get him there and pick him up.
