Some of your friends or relatives with Yorkshire dogs who recently gave birth may be willing to give away one of the puppies to a good home. Adopting a puppy from someone you personally know gives you access to important details about the puppy, its parents and their living conditions. Just make sure that the puppy is over eight weeks old as taking a puppy away from its litter and mother may cause behavioral issues as it grows older. You may also need to take the puppy to a veterinarian to make sure that it gets its core shots, booster shots and other vaccinations and supplements.

If a Yorkshire puppy is not available, consider adopting an older dog. The Animal Foundation in Nevada, for example, conducts adoption specials where the organization waive fees for dogs and cats that are more than a year old. Some rescues, animal shelters and humane societies also waive adoption fees for individuals who are over 60 years old.

Adoptable dogs with waived fees are usually adult dogs but are already spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and evaluated for temperament. Adult dogs are also calmer compared with puppies who can be rambunctious and may not be suitable for homes with children.
