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 cash only.

Puppies too young to be spayed/neutered are available for Foster-to-Adopt only.  A FTA contract is required.

Diabetic.Ruby.  Ruby was sent to us from the Houston SPCA.  See, the SPCA only sends to rescues dogs they deem 'unadoptable'.  

Ruby came to us in deplorable condition.  Weight loss, pancreatitis, and out of control diabetes. She has a pancreatic condition in addition to diabetes: EPI. Her pancreas does not produce the enzymes necessary to digest food, so her meals are soaked in hot water and enzymes-Diane before each meal.

We have worked with Ruby for over a year getting her diabetes 'manageable'. We chart her glucose curves, just like human diabetics do.  Our volunteer has invested hundreds of hours in learning about this disease and proper care and treatment, and we have worked closely with our veterinary partner.  Her blood glucose is tested before each meal and the results recorded in a journal. Right now, Ruby eats vet approved kibble and boiled chicken twice a day.

Ruby needs a home who has experience with diabetic dogs.  Please, if this is you, please give this girl a soft place to land!  

On a happier note, Ruby seems to know some basic commands: leave it, come, sit, stay, outside, inside, and of course--No! She like to play with squeaky toys, but will "kill" the squeaker most of the time! She will continue to play with the toy even after it quits squeaking. She is a happy, intelligent dog and loves people. She is treat motivated, but can only eat ones approved for diabetic dogs.

Ruby's adopter will be experienced with diabetes, giving insulin, taking glucose readings and managing a fussy eater.
