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.

Update: This sweet little girl has made so much progress. She still has a ways to go but she is slowly learning to trust humans. When we started she was terrified of her leash, didn’t want to be held or picked up, kept a 10 foot distance from humans, and froze in fear when we went outside for a walk. I’m happy to say she now will stop and let me pick her up and hold her without trying to get away, she gets super excited when it’s time for a walk, I can pet her without her cringing in fear, and she is slowly trusting other humans. She loves dogs and I think they have helped tremendously with her fear and anxiety along with teaching her how to be a dog. She had obviously not experienced being a pet and having good interactions with people. She still has a ways to go but every day she makes new strides. Her ideal home needs to be one with patience and willingness to help her continue to grow and learn to trust. She needs atleast one animal companion to help teach her and ease her anxiety. Having time for walks and attention would be ideal. A calm home with adults or older children only is gonna be best for this girl. She has come a long way with potty training but still needs some work. Mostly when I am away at work for longer periods and this will likely improve as her fear and anxiety decreases. ZsaZsa is the sweetest little girl and fairly quiet. She likes to fetch toys but mostly keep them lol. Watching squirrels in the trees, exploring outside or just laying in the shade are many of her loves. She will make a great companion if you’re willing to give her time and earn her trust. 

Ms. Zsa Zsa will become a wonderful little girl once she finds her human and learns to trust again. She is fearful, shy, and reserved at this time. Zsa Zsa will need a lot of one-on-one time to help her grow into the little dog she was meant to become.

This girl came in with another little girl.  We agreed to take these girls from a rescue in N. Texas rescue who took them in as a 'breeder dump'.  They have high anxiety and extreme fear.

They are not available yet. They need to better adjust before they are adopted.

Zsa Zsa is more friendly than Maggie.  However her anxiety has manifested itself in some self -harm.  She scratched herself raw.  We immediately took her to our vet for labs and no medical issue was found.  We gave her a cytopoint injection to help keep her comfortable
