Basil came from the shelter with a few of his friends after his former home was no longer able to care for him. We told him we would find him a perfect forever home and it's been smooth sailing ever since. Basil weighs 13 pounds and is as happy as can be to follow you along on all of life’s adventures. Basil is a pip-squeak boy with a heart bigger than his body and he promises to make all your wishes come true if you are lucky enough to bring him home!    Basil is the sweetest pup looking for a home ready to give him the best life has to offer from toys to belly rubs to snuggles to walks to treats. This little boy has the most fabulous habit of building pillow forts and curling up on them like the king he is. He loves prancing around the house and yard with his toys as he shows off his adorable face. Basil loves his people more than anything and would love to take on the world, whether on a leash or in a doggy backpack. He has bursts of puppy energy and adores squeaky toys, but he’s also content lounging around and getting naps in. He also loves to shred paper so make sure you keep important documents away from this wannabee accountant! He would love a permanent spot on the couch in a cuddle pile, and with his little smiling face it’s hard to resist him.  Basil starts his morning at 7:30 AM with a potty break and some zoomies. This early bird always gets the best worms and happily greets the day. He waits a bit before breakfast, working up an appetite with toys and cuddles. Throughout the day, Basil loves to hang out with his people but he is also more than happy to occupy himself if needed. He loves soft beds, soft blankets, and warm laps to cuddle up on for hours at a time. At 5 PM, Basil has dinner followed by more playtime and an evening walk before he curls up for bed!  Basil gets along with the resident dog and would love a canine companion in his forever home! Basil experienced a leash for the first time in his foster home and he is learning to love exploring the world. He gains confidence as he watches other dogs and people do the thing, so he’d love to do it with you! Basil would love a home ready to put in the time to help him bloom into a confident dog. Watching Basil figure out the things he loves will be the best adventure there is for his new people!    Basil is only an option for homes who have owned a dog in the last 5 years. Kids in the home should be over the age of 12.May 22, 2024, 7:41 am

This teeny 5 pound gal leapt out of the shelter into the arms of her rescuer and she hasn’t looked back since! Meerkat is endlessly adorable and loving and will be the best companion for any home. She has a short coat and tiny little legs, which means she will be an amazing fit for a purse (or three). Speaking of purses, she also rocks an accessory and would love a chic wardrobe in her new home. Meerkat can’t wait to meet you and find her happily ever after!    Meerkat is the dictionary definition of “man’s best friend” for her people. To know Meerkat is to have a best friend and loyal companion for life. She has gained her confidence more and more as the days go by and has begun bounding around outside with her toys happily. She loves to sniff out all there is to smell in the yard, get her tan on on the patio, curl up on a warm blanket as the day gets colder, and collect treats for being so dang cute. Meerkat is so curious and has boundless enthusiasm for finding new things to love, and it makes her the best little friend you could want. She is so playful but can keep herself occupied when she needs to as well. As long as she has a soft toy, she’s good to go. This loving girl can’t wait to explore the world with her forever home.  Meerkat starts her day at 6:30 AM and goes right outside for a potty trip. She then comes inside for breakfast and snuggles which she soaks up relentlessly. Throughout the day, Meerkat spends her time playing and napping on repeat. Tons of toys follow her around the house and sometimes she even passes out right on top of a plush pile when she needs a break. Meerkat gets a snack around noon and then has dinner at 4:30 PM. By around 8 PM, Meerkat is pretty wiped out from a busy day of playing and falls asleep cuddling on the couch as she gets pets and kisses. After one last trip outside for potty, she heads into her crate at 10 PM.  Meerkat gets along with the resident dog and has encouraged him to play tug-of-war all day long! Meerkat has been on a few walks and has been learning the ways of the neighborhood dogs. She knows how to use the doggie door and is making progress on her potty training as the days go by. She is so adorable and we know that she will be an absolute amazing addition to just about any home, so don’t delay in applying to take her home!    Meerkat is an option for homes who have owned a dog in the last 5 years. She would love a resident dog or could thrive as a solo pup. Kids in the home should be over the age of 7.May 22, 2024, 7:41 am

We need your votes. You can vote once a day but on multiple devices. http://bit.ly/dpswinky The Candy Puppies are a litter of 3 month old adorable candy bars ready to be your sweet treat! This litter is 7 puppies: 4 girls and 3 boys. We suspect there were many dads with hands in the cookie jar as the puppies have a variety of flavors but Mom was a tiny Chi. Maybe they share an ancestor with Dumbo because they all have fabulous ears! We think Dads were a Yorkie, an Italian Greyhound, and a Pug. Puppies will likely be in the 6-9 pound range when they reach their adult weights.  If you are looking for a fun-sized candy bar to add to your home, look no further than the adorable Candy puppies!    Almond Joy (F): Almond Joy is an adorable and fun-loving puppy with a cuddly core of love! She is the perfect mixture of playful and cuddly, which makes her an ideal candidate for any home. She loves her people above all else and would love to spend her days taking on the world, as long as you are alongside her! Almond Joy loves showing off her zoomies and has a tail that wags faster than the speed of light when her foster parents greet her in the morning. She would love a home where she can continue living her best life, with lots of toys and snuggles. She’s even perfect for those with nut allergies, what more could you ask for? Baby Ruth (F): Baby Ruth is an explorer pup looking for a home ready to take on the world (from her tiny vantage point)! Baby Ruth adores people and has made herself a petite shadow for her foster mama. She loves soaking up the sunshine out in the yard but she also loves snuggling up on a warm lap as her siblings play around her. Baby Ruth is the kind of puppy who is very confident as she romps around to explore, but then when she realizes you aren’t following her she races back like “hey, come on”! Every day, Baby Ruth discovers a new way to make herself even more adorable and fabulous to her foster family and they know her forever home will be so lucky to have her!  Butterfinger (M): Butterfinger is a little guy with long legs and a big heart! This guy is smaller than a tennis ball which means he is the perfect size to scamper his way into your heart! Butterfinger is a Mama’s Boy to his very core and his favorite activity is cuddling up on a lap getting his adorable ears scratched while his siblings play fight around him. Butterfinger is very smart as well and is always the first to poke his head up when his foster parents come over with treats. He loves to show off and pose. Butterfinger would love a home where he can hang out and live his best life, whether that be sunning himself in the backyard or checking out the world from the arms of his forever people!  Kit Kat (M): Kit Kat is a ball of fun and brings down the house every night with his comedic exploits! Kit Kat is a total class clown and he does a great physical comedy bit: he takes a toy 4x his size and drags it around the house as his ears flap in the wind. This fabulous boy will keep you laughing throughout a lifetime of love and adventure. Kit Kat is also a charmer who knows how to park himself on a warm lap when he is ready for snuggles and pets. Kit Kat adores crawling into the pocket of his foster Mom’s hoodie and having her carry him around as he sees the world from new heights. Just another genius idea from our resident charmer! Kit Kat promises to bring flavor and excitement from the first bite!  M&M (F): M&M is the energizer bunny of her siblings and always gets the gang moving in the morning! However, as soon as you scoop her up, she is a cuddle puddle of love and adoration. She would love a home where she can get in on the action, even though you may need to give her a little time to grow into her legs. She looks the most unique of her siblings and boy does she know it! She is always happy to strut her stuff around the yard as she sniffs out new adventures to explore. M&M loves her people and wants you to adore her just as much! Looking for a road-trip gal? That’s her! Looking for an Instagram model? That’s her! Looking for an adorable and loving puppy with a heart of gold? You’ve met your perfect puppy with M&M.  Skittle (F): Skittle is a true rainbow of personality and flavor! This girl has a true Iggy personality and look to her, so lovers of the breed should look no further! Skittle is a perfect mixture of cuddly and playful and gets along with everyone she meets. She is happy to sit and hang out as you work but she is equally as overjoyed if you run around the yard with her and a toy. Her favorite toys currently include anything with a squeaker or a crinkle inside it. It is hilarious to watch her run around with toys so much bigger than her. Skittle would love a home where she can join in on all the action, from movie nights to trips to the beach. We know that once you meet her, you won’t be able to resist bringing her home!  Sour Patch (M): Sour Patch is a Mama’s Boy to his core. No sour with this boy, only sweet! Sour Patch is a tiny guy with a heart that is so big it can barely stay inside his body. He is more of a “sit back and watch the action” puppy than a “charge in head first” one, but he does like to play with his siblings! Sour Patch would be a perfect apartment dog as he is so small he barely takes up any space, but you’ll always know he is there because he won’t want to let you out of his sight! Sour Patch can’t wait to bring a burst of flavor and love into your life and get started on his forever adventures!    The puppies start their morning around 7 AM with breakfast as their play area is cleaned out from the night. They love saying hello to everyone in the foster home so the morning is their favorite time of the day. After they finish eating, the puppies get herded outside for playtime as the sun comes out. Throughout the morning they loop between play, sleep, and zooming around. After lunch at 1 PM, the puppies take a long nap piled on top of each other for an hour until they are ready for more fun! The afternoon is filled with more adventures in the toy bin as they romp around the yard and the house. They are ready for adventure! They come inside for dinner at 5 PM and then soak up cuddles from their foster family as everyone unwinds from the day. At around 10 PM, after lots of cuddles and play time, the puppies head to bed.  The Candy puppies have been well socialized with dogs of all ages and sizes. They adore people but due to their smaller size may not be the best option for small hands. As puppies, they will require socialization and training to ensure they are fabulous adults. We will be looking for homes ready to take on all that comes with the joy of puppyhood! If you are ready for a sweet adventure, you’ve met your match with one of our candy bars!    The Candy puppies are only an option for homes who have owned a dog in the last 5 years. We will be looking for individual homes for each puppy as we do not place siblings together. Kids in the home should be over the age of 8. May 22, 2024, 7:41 am

Our adoption fees vary. Each biography will specifically list the adoption fee.Adoption Fee: $800   Bug is a 14 week old Yorkie x Poodle mix who is looking for a forever home ready to explore the world with him! Bug was surrendered to our rescue after his former home decided they weren’t as ready for a puppy as they thought. We were thankful they decided to give Bug his happy ever after chance and promised to find him a perfect forever home. Bug has fabulous ears and an even more amazing personality. He is the total package and will have all the dogs barking at your door to befriend him. Bug will be in the 9-12 pound range when he reaches his adult weight. Bug may have a lighter shedding coat due to his breed mix, but he will not be an option for those seeking a hypoallergenic dog.     Bug is a fabulous puppy with a fun spirited, playful personality blended with a heart of gold! This puppy would love nothing more than taking on the world with YOU. Wherever you are is where he wants to be. Bug loves to scamper around the house, charging from room to room with his favorite toy of the day. Bug loves to snuggle as well, curling up in your lap or in the crook of your arm. He loves all toys, from stuffed animals to soft chew puppy bones to your slippers. Bug has the spirit of the wild in him and would love to take on adventures of all types with his new family. He is very smart and picks up on new things quickly, especially if there is food involved! Bug is excited to have an unlimited number of toys and activities in his new home, because it is practically impossible to say no to his puppy dog eyes. Bug is a total sweetheart and we know he will be the absolute perfect addition to any home.   Bug starts his morning at around 7 AM and goes right outside to potty. After he comes back inside, he gets his breakfast at 7:30. Bug has a great appetite and loves his meals. During the day, Bug delights in being by your side. If you leave the room, he wants to know where the excitement is and is trotting right alongside you. He usually rotates between play sessions with his foster brother, following his people around, and taking long snoozes (it’s hard to be a puppy)! Bug is very curious and loves to get himself into mischief when you take your eye off him, so be prepared for silly antics with our funny boy. Bug goes outside often throughout the day to encourage him to perfect his potty skills. He is making progress! Bug has dinner at 5 PM and then spends his evenings playing and getting cuddled. After one last trip outside he slowly settles into his crate for the night. He would love to sleep right next to you on your bed though!  Bug currently lives with two dogs and he gets along fabulously with them. He would love a doggy playmate in his forever home but he would also be just fine as a solo pup. Bug will need continued training and socialization to ensure he is the best adult dog he can be. He would be the perfect office dog once he gets the basics down! Our favorite thing about Bug? When he shakes his head, his entire body wriggles with excitement as well. He is just the best puppy ever!     Bug is only an option for homes who have owned a dog in the last 5 years. Interested homes should be prepared to discuss training plans. Kids in the home should be over the age of 7.May 22, 2024, 7:41 am

Hi, This is our little guy Mr. Peppy, he is a very energetic boy and loves to play with his toys. Unfortunately due to our work we will no longer be able to keep him. Since he has only lived in my current apartment there wasn’t have enough time to get him trained so he could be ok with other dogs around as he is very protective as well. I do hope that he can find a good home that will give him the time and space he needs to be a happy dog. He is not house trained but learns fast, he will also need to be trained to be ok around other people as he gets scared of new things and people. He is the most lovable dog and he would want to play tug of war with you all day if you let him. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out. Thank you!

Story
Meet Olive. She is a fiesty, happy little girl. She walks well on a leash (and thoroughly enjoys her walks), loves to eat, housebroken, and sleeps much of the day away in her bed or on the couch. She came to rescue covered in filth and mats. That gave her a skin condition that required several months of treatment and recovery. But she is ready to go now. Her new adopter(s) will get the pleasure of watching her bald spots disappear! Many of those spots have fuzz on them already but a couple may ultimately remain hairless. She is only 6 pounds and cute as a button so, on walks, be prepared to hear over and over "oh, look at her...so cute". When she comes across dogs on walks, she is so excited she almost comes across aggressive. But when she gets face to face, she is so happy to meet them! Given the shape she was in when she came to us, it appears she has had a tough time in the past. She is still coming out of her shell and learning to trust. I have had the pleasure of caring for her for a couple of months thru her skin problem and she has come to trust me. It has been such a pleasure to watch. She plays with me, happy to see me, lets me put meds on, etc. She still has food aggression but, again, given her trust of me, I am now able to take her food without a problem. If you think she might fit into your home, please visit WrenYorkieRescue.org, click on Forms, fill out the adoption application, and mail in or submit online so we can set up a meet and greet.

MAY 2024: TEDDY is currently a big 20# boy, similar to the standard size 300+ years ago when the breed was first established; he could stand to lose up to 5# & should be able to do this with good walks & high quality food, as he is not a big eater and is VERY people-oriented. Teddy LOVES to gnaw on small beef kneecaps from Chewy.com; he would adore being a lapdog, but is very polite about asking permission to hop into an occupied chair or his person’s bed at night—where he wants to cuddle close on top of the covers. Teddy gets along with other dogs, but will grumble when they get into his bowl or try to steal his kneecap (even when others have their own bones!). He would do well in a family with older children and/or perhaps a stay-at-home grandparent to keep company with; he is a good watchdog while not being overly vocal.

These pups are in Palo Alto, California too!

This gal came right to the front of her enclosure with a wag in her tail and soulful eyes, so we absolutely couldn’t say no to saving her! She is the perfect package all wrapped up with an adorable underbite! Piper has a gorgeous non-shedding coat which means she will require regular grooming. She is an option for those with allergies or those who just want less hair around the house.    Below is a note from Piper’s foster.  “Piper is a goofy, friendly, loving and energetic dog who has been an absolute joy since day one! She has an adorable underbite which gives her a perpetual smile, making it hard to resist giving her anything and everything she desires! She is adventurous in her quest to sniff all the good smells in the world but still likes to end her day curled up in a soft dog bed. She is playful and will happily chase after her toys, but when she wants a break she will nudge her head into your hand for endless pets. She is an absolutely perfect gal who will be a fabulous addition to any home!  Piper starts her day at 7 AM and goes outside for a potty break. She has breakfast around 8:30 AM and then spends her days snoozing on soft blankets and beds around the house. She gets an afternoon walk and she loves sniffing her way through the neighborhood. After her walk, she spends some time playing with her foster home before she has dinner at 6 PM. In the evening, she cuddles with us before heading to bed around 9 AM.  Piper gets along well with other dogs when she meets off-leash. She needs a slow introduction to new people and reacts best to people who are willing to work through her Napoleon complex. Once she gets to know her people, she will be nothing but loving forever. Piper would do best in a home where there is less chaos, so older kids only.”   Piper needs a home with prior experience so she can best thrive. She would do best with a home ready to continue her training and exposure to the world. Kids should be over the age of 15.  May 22, 2024, 7:41 am

Our adoption fees vary. Each biography will specifically list the adoption fee.Adoption Fee: $650 Violin is a 1 year old Maltese x Poodle mix who is ready to start up a concert with his forever home! Violin went solo after his former home was moving and decided they didn’t have room for him in the band anymore. Well, we couldn’t let a guy as handsome as Violin hang out in a dark shelter, this boy is meant for the stage! Violin gave his rescuer little kisses from the second we got a collar on him and his life has only been on an upramp since! We can’t wait for him to find his conductor and start living his absolute best life. Violin weighs 16 pounds.     Violin is the kind of dog who will blossom as he gets to know you, and you will get the joy of seeing that love bloom! After a few days, Violin started showing us his curious and loving sides that we have been delighted by. While we don’t know his backstory, we know that he deserves only the best from here. Violin loves to dance, prance, and wiggle his body whether or not there is music playing. He just wants to dance like nobody's watching! Violin is a total velcro dog who is looking for his new human best friend, so if you are looking for a forever pal, he is your dude. If you go out and come home, prepare for the happiest zoomies in the world! Violin is a perfect mix of active and lazy. He loves a good romp outside when he is in the mood but when he is done, he can plop down and nap with the best of them. Violin can even be a yoga buddy as he does the best downward dog stretches whenever he wakes up from a nap. Truly what more could you ask for!  Violin wakes up at 7 AM and goes right outside for a potty break. He can hold his bladder for 8-9 hours at night and adjusts into a routine in about a week. After he goes potty he comes right inside for breakfast During the day, Violin loves to lounge around the house as you work. He would be an amazing WFH companion as he just wants to chill out and be with you. Violin loves pets and will snuggle close to you when he decides it is time for attention. He loves investigating and romping around the backyard during the day, checking out all the sights and smells the grass has to offer. He is still getting used to the leash but we know he will be walking like a champ in no time. Violin gets his dinner at 5 PM and then he spends his evening cuddled up as he sniffs out some toys. He goes out for one last potty break around 10 PM and then he heads into his crate where he happily sleeps through the night.  Violin lives with another dog and they coexist happily. He would do well as a companion dog as long as there is a polite introduction. Violin will need both obedience and socialization training to ensure he continues growing into a confident adult pup. We know this boy will be such a fabulous companion for his new people, he just needs the chance to shine. Violin would thrive in a home where he can slowly get adjusted to his new life. If you give him the chance to show you how awesome he is, you will earn the love of an amazing dog. This string player will be super in your forever home!   Violin is only an option for homes who have prior dog experience, especially those experienced with shy dogs. Kids in the home should be over the age of 12. May 22, 2024, 7:41 am
