Consider using Petfinder.com to search for Yorkie-poos in your area. This site lets you search by breed and location.

Even if there is no fee-waived program available, most adoption fees are low enough that the dog is essentially free when you factor all the necessary care a new dog needs. Most dogs need to be vaccinated, microchipped and spayed or neutered when they arrive in their new homes. When a private veterinarian provides these services, the cost is often significantly more than a pet adoption fee.

In addition, animal rescues test dogs for temperament and health issues prior to placing the dogs with families. If behavioral problems do occur, most rescues provide advice and support to help overcome them.
