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 involved and 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.

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?

About Florida Yorkie Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

The mission of Florida Yorkie Rescue is to rescue Yorkies, Yorkie mixes and other small breeds regardless of age or additional handicaps that may be associated with aging or birth defects. We never discriminate on the basis of health, age or breed.

We pledge to promote responsible pet ownership through humane education and to provide shelter and care to our foster dogs until a loving, responsible home can be found. To evaluate each dog and potential home with the goal of matching our dogs to the best possible home. We also provide life-long, quality sanctuary for yorkies that may be too old or ill for adoption.

This organization is made up entirely of people who volunteer their time and money to foster and place these little dogs in caring, loving homes. Almost all the dogs that come into Florida Yorkie Rescue need rehabilitation and training and we seek out medical care or alternative methods if traditional treatments do not work. All dogs that come into Florida Yorkie Rescue will be neutered or spayed and vaccinated.
