Charlie is a beautiful 3 year old, 11 pound Yorkie being fostered in Fremont, CA. He is ready for his forever home! Charlie's adoption fee is $400.
THANK YOU TO CHARLIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!
Mary Mays-Delamater, Nancy Stanley
Update 03/23/16: Charlie is ready for his forever home! Since he has been living with me, I have been working on his crate training, potty training, behavior modification training for his fear of strangers, and leash training. Generally, I have been teaching him to be a “good citizen” in a home environment, something I think he never learned before. Charlie has come a long way since he arrived at my house.
The perfect home for Charlie would be a quiet home, no children, a fenced backyard with a doggie door, and another dog or two, if they are of a calm and stable temperament. The perfect owner for Charlie would be one that enjoys playing with their dog, teaching them tricks, and walking them. Charlie loves his toys, and loves to play. This boy has a big heart and is anxious to learn! Charlie will surely steal your heart.
To help him transition, Charlie will come with two free online training sessions with Halo Dog Training. Isn't that great!
Update 01/24/16: Charlie has shown aggressiveness towards strangers, although very loving to his foster parents. For this reason, we have placed his adoption on hold while we consult and work with a trainer. It has been recommended by the trainer that Chester and Charlie be separated as they tend to feed off of each other’s bad behavior. For that reason we have made the difficult decision that they will be separated and adopted to different homes.
Update 12/10/15: Charlie has no evidence of ringworm. He is the larger of the two boys. He would like to be a lap dog, as he will jump in my lap if allowed. He appears to be house trained, as he has had no accidents in the house. However, we are also doing crate training with Charlie. Both boys are just adorable and very well behaved in their crates.
Initial Bio: 12/07/15: Charlie is about 11 pounds and 3 years old. Currently he will require vet care for a skin problem, suspected to be ringworm. Both boys are just adorable with sweet personalities, and very good in their crate. I will know more after their vet appointment tomorrow. Charlie is on left of the picture, Chester on the right.
To date we've spent $199.31 on Charlie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $25.00 in donations.

Handsome Chester is 3 years old, 7 pounds and is being fostered in Fremont, CA. Chester's adoption fee is $400.
THANK YOU TO CHESTER'S RESCUE ANGELS!
Update 03/04/16: Chester is ready for his forever home! Since he has been living with me I have been working on his crate training, potty training, behavior modification training for his fear of strangers, and leash training. Generally I have been teaching him to be a "good citizen" in a home environment, something I think he never learned before. Chester has come a long way since he arrived at my house.
The perfect home for Chester would be a quiet home, no children, a fenced back yard with a doggie door, and another dog or two is fine. Chester's favorite activities are chasing the squirrels in the back yard, and being a lap dog. Chester does not seem too interested in toys, but that could change in a new home environment minus his brother. Chester may always be nervous of new people, and must be introduced carefully. I think on his own without his brother this boy will blossom!
To help him transition in his new home, Chester will come with two free online training sessions with Halo Dog Training. Isn't that great?
Update 01/24/16: Chester has shown aggressiveness towards strangers, although very loving to his foster parents. For this reason we have placed his adoption on hold while we consult and work with a trainer.

For that reason we have made the difficult decision that the boys be separated and adopted to different homes.
Update 12/10/15: Chester is being treated for ringworm. This is not a serious condition and should be gone in a couple of weeks. He is the smaller of the two, and wants to be a lap dog. He will jump into my lap if allowed. He does not appear to be very well house trained, as we have had a couple of accidents, so we are doing crate training now. Both boys are adorable and sweet, and are very well behaved in their crates.
Initial Bio 12/07/15: Chester is about 7 pounds and 3 years old. He is a sweet boy, and enjoys playing in the back yard with his brother, Charlie. Currently he will require some vet care for suspected ringworm. Chester and Charlie are very sweet and loving, and are very good in their crate. I will know more after their vet appointments tomorrow.
To date we've spent $719.47 on Chester's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $15.00 in donations.

Corina is a 10 year old, 9 pound Yorkie mix being fostered in Canyon Country, CA.
Corina is so excited about a forever home that her bags are packed and she is sitting at the front door waiting... can it be you?
THANK YOU TO CORINA'S RESCUE ANGELS!
Sandra Wendt, Jan Freeman, Jennie Shireman, Karry Rogers, Susan Cassady, Ashley Sanders, Brenda Bargers, Renae Sutley, Julie Wiegert, Mahmoud Loghman-Adham, Tracy Constant, June Somers, Hether Valenzuela, Jacqueline Lawson, Mary Caldwell, Leah Masterson, Natalie Chu, Tegwyn Neilson, Jennifer McMahon, Della La Pre, Fabiola Francis, Marcus Richardson, Diane Melfi, Caitlin Payne, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Ava Humphrey, Francisco Larios Ochoa, Betty Pickard, Sherry Johnson-Traver, Irene and Peter Havas...Merry XMas, we love you, Larry Parker, Luis Parada, Holly Stavis, Holly Stavis, Brigitte Saylor, Frances Cayao
Update 04/16/16: Corina went to a photo shooting today and looks so pretty in her spring dress. Thanks to United Yorkie Rescue she is a happy, healthy little girl now. She is a young 10 year old with many years of love left to give. She weighs 9 and 1/2 pounds and is small enough to accompany her human everywhere. Corina walks nicely on a leash and is currently enrolled for classes to earn her Canine Good Citizen just like her foster siblings did.
We realized recently that she seems to like men in particular even so she loves her Foster Mom.
Corina does not do well with other dogs in the home but she loves to greet all the dogs she meets on walks.
Corina is crate trained and house trained. She will make a wonderful companion.
Update 03/06/16: Corina is a 9 pound, 10 year old terrier mix fostered in the LA area. She is very easy going and house trained. Corina has a lot of love to give and will make an excellent companion. She has a very dominant personality and we think she would do best as an only dog. She is the sweetest girl and will let you sleep in if that is what you like to do. So, if you are looking for a dog that will not make you get up early in the morning, she is your girl.
Update 01/30/16: Just look at this girl. She is so ready to go to her furever home. She has completely recovered from her surgeries and is a happy, healthy 10 year old with lots of love to give. She should be an only dog and would love to have a fenced in backyard. I don't think she ever had toys. She is learning to play with them and loves it.
Update 01/14/16: This little girl has been through so much. She had her mammary tumor removed and the lipoma from her back, she had a dental and was spayed. At this point she has made a complete recovery and we expect her to have a full life expectancy!
I just don't understand why nobody has applied to adopt this beautiful little girl. She so deserves her own loving family. She is a love bug who will follow you around wherever you go and loves to sit right next to you on the couch. Her tail wags whenever she sees you. She is the easiest companion to take care of. She pees on command when taken outside. She loves her crate and does not mind to be crated when you are at work but she really deserves someone who is home most of the time and she would do best as an only dog. I love this girl so much and wish nothing more than to find her the perfect home.
Update 12/27/15: Corina has recovered nicely from her surgeries and is ready to go to her furever home. She is a sweet 10 year old senior, easy going and not a barker at all. She just wants someone to hang out with. She potties outside on the porch potty immediately when I take her out and ask her to go potty. She does not like to drink unless water is directly offered to her. Often I have to wet my fingers to get her started. She does not like the leash very much but will walk nicely on a leash once you get going.
I would love to see her go to a person who is able to spend lots of time with her. This girl really deserves it after everything she has been through.
Update 12/02/15: Corina got her stitches out, yesterday. We got good news. Her mammary tumor was encapsulated and it looks like it was removed completely. Her big growth in the back was a lipoma that was growing down from the smaller one on her back. It was growing infiltrating and they removed whatever was possible. There is a very small chance it may grow back over time but hopefully it will not. She is a whole new dog and ready to move on to a forever home. She loves her human close by and is happy to snuggle up right next to you. It would be nice for her to have a home where she is not alone too much. It seems that she is crate trained. We had a couple of incidents when I took her out of the crate without taking her out first. She uses the porch potty on the balcony when I take her out. She is a very sweet girl.
Update 11/16/15: Corina had her surgery today and she came through it all like a champ. The scar on her abdomen that was thought to have been a previous spay was likely the result of a C-section. When the vet went in to do a "look see", it was discovered that she still had her female organs. Since she was doing well under anesthesia, the vet did the two mass removals, a spay, mammary tumor removal and a dental with extractions. The mass on her back was infiltrating, which means it could not be removed completely and may or may not grow back. We are home and she ate dinner and had her medications.
Update 11/16/15: Corina is currently at Dr. Vanessa's office for surgery. Her big growth was attached to the little lipoma on her back. It weighs 1 and 1/2 pounds. Poor Corina has been carrying that around with her. This thing was actually throwing her off balance when she got excited. Dr. Vanessa found a C-section scar on her belly when they were going to spay her. She is currently getting her dental. Looks like she will have a new happy life ahead of her.
Update 11/10/15: Little Corina went to see the Dogtor, yesterday. The hernia is not a hernia but a huge mass that will need to be removed. She also needs to have the mammary tumor removed. At this point our biggest concern is the firm golf ball size mass next to her spine in the pelvic area. It was biopsied yesterday. We are hoping that this is not an aggressive cancer she has growing there. Hopefully we will have the results by Thursday. Even so she must have been in a lot of discomfort, she was a very good little girl during her examination. She is a wonderful dog, very loving little girl.
The plan for now is to do all mass removals, the spay, and dental during one session if she tolerates it well. The estimate at this point is close to $1900. Please sent healing thoughts that she will be okay
Updated Bio 11/08/15: I picked up Corina at a high kill shelter yesterday. She was a stray on the street! Corina is estimated to be 10 years old and is a Yorkie mix. Her face and behind look like Yorkie. She has that sweet Yorkie face. She was brought to my attention because of her huge perineal hernia. She also has a mammary tumor, needs a dental, and I found a mass lateral to her spine on her lower back when I bathed her. She is a sweet girl and who weighed in at 11.7 pounds. She is up to date on vaccinations and was microchipped. The shelter said she is not spayed. She will see the dogtor tomorrow. Please stay tuned for updates as I get to know her.
Initial Bio 11/07/15: Corina was rescued from a shelter in Southern California. As you can see from her picture she has a massive perineal hernia (the protrusion that is pink) as well as mammary tumors and a mass on her back. She is one sweet girl who needs your support.
To date we've spent $2379.74 on Corina's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1167.00 in donations.

Little Dallas is 9 weeks old, 1.5 pounds and he will be moving to the Dallas, TX area.
Dallas is a sick little boy and could use your financial help and good thoughts! UYR appreciates the help to make him well!

Sandy Pagnotta, Sandra Wendt, Pamela Davis, Amy Chernault, Aneta Roszkowski, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Karry Rogers, Jodi Pistler, Christie Rider, Connie Peters, Sarah Bartel, Carol Nelson, Joy Graham Travis, Irene and Peter Havas in memory of Buddy and Vanessa
Initial Bio 04/25/16: Hi everyone, my name is Dallas. I am a 9 week old male Yorkie baby. I weigh about a pound and half. My name is extremely fitting because I am moving to Texas! I hear everything is bigger and better there. Let's hope so because I'm going to have liver shunt surgery there when I'm a little older and a little heavier. My foster mom also fears I might be blind but when I have my first vet visit we will find out for sure. Until the surgery happens I am unavailable for adoption but will be staying with my foster momma and two foster sisters. Please help with my surgery by donating. If you need a tax deduction or just because you think I am cute… please consider donating for my care.
Thank you, Dallas
To date we've spent $39.86 on Dallas's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $590.00 in donations.

Arthur is an amazing 3.5 year old, 9 pound Yorkie Mix being fostered in Orlando, FL.
Arthur is now ready for his forever home...If you love a dog who gives lots of kisses, this is the boy for you!
THANK YOU TO ARTHUR'S RESCUE ANGELS!
Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Nancy Carlson, Stephanie West, Christine Dwyer, Anita Konick, Jean Moffitt, Wendy D'Uva
Updated bio 4/29/16 Arthur is a very happy, lovable Yorkie Mix. He is only 3 ½ years old and weighs a perfect 10 pounds. He is being fostered in Orlando, FL.
Arthur is such a great catch! His foster mom thinks he is a designer doggie mix. She thinks someone decided to take a Yorkie, a long hair Chihuahua, and a Chinese Crested or Maltese, and ended up with the most adorable, cutest fellow you could ever imagine! Look at that face!!
This handsome, funny, happy guy is finally ready for his furever home! Arthur has come such a long way since arriving at his foster home. That once too skinny little guy is now an active, healthy, comical, bundle of love. He makes his foster parents laugh everyday!
This sweet active boy needs a playmate who is close to his size and preferably female. He loves his foster sister and although she was not too interested in playing when he first arrived, she happily indulges him now. She never really liked to play with other dogs before, so it's nice to see her engage with him. He never gets too rough, though.
Arthur really needs a fenced yard because he LOVES to roll in the grass, bring out his toys into the yard, and sit on the outside couch and watch the world go by. Although he is an active boy, he knows how to calm down. He loves to cuddle up with foster mom or dad and watch TV at night. He happily sleeps in his pen and will go in during the day by himself to catch a catnap. Arthur is house trained. He never ever goes in the house and can hold it for a very long time. He is a great sleeper, a good eater, and except for not doing so well in the car on long trips, he would be the perfect family dog.
Older kids would be great for Arthur! He LOVES to play fetch, and chase, and be chased. This is one happy pup! He even gives kisses when he is being groomed! He is up to date on all vaccinations, neutered, and has all his sparkling teeth. He is very healthy. He will be a great pal for a very long time! Please consider this active, happy lad.

This sweet active boy needs a playmate who is close to his size and preferably female. He loves to play and would love a playmate ready at an instant to join him in fun and games. His foster sister figured if you can't beat him, join him, so now they play and play together.
Arthur really needs a fenced yard because he LOVES to roll in the grass, bring out his toys into the yard, and guard the yard, but his guarding is all in fun and never ever mean. This fellow does not have a mean bone in his body. Arthur is a very good watchdog! Although he is an active boy, he knows how to calm down.

3-1-16 Updated bio. Arthur is a 3.5 year old, 9 lb. Yorkie mix. He is being fostered in the Orlando area.
Here are a few words from Arthur himself:
Hi, It’s me Arthur. I just wanted to let you know that I am feeling almost like my old self again! I had my dental, my blood work, and my neuter (yikes!) My x-rays were done, and I passed with flying colors! The only thing is that my fracture still needs some time to heal. The nice vet said that there is plenty of new bone growth but it has not completely healed yet. Another few weeks and I'll be as good as new. She said that even though I'm not completely healed, I'm ready for my forever family as long as they don't let me over do it. It sure doesn't stop me from trying to play with my foster sister. She's kind of getting used to me. I think I won her over because I'm soooo charming! My foster mom sure thinks so. She tells me all the time what a handsome love bug I am and lets me kiss her as much as I want, which is a lot. She says I can't hold my licker!!
I sure would love to go to a furever family who has a fur playmate for me, and maybe some older kids to throw my toys around and play with me. By the way, I LOVE to play fetch! Well, truthfully I just love to play. Foster mom says that I also have to have a fenced yard. Then I can run around and just be the happiest boy. It would be even better to run around with another fur playmate and maybe some older kids.
I never ever go potty in the house anymore and I can hold it for a long time if I need to. It's probably because foster mom gives me treats and tells me what a good boy I am every time I go potty outside.
I'm pretty proud of myself. Foster mom have even taught me how to sit and stay and how to walk nicely on a leash. I can tell you, that was not an easy feat! I sleep in my pen and really love it. It's so comfy with pillows and blankets that I go in even when I don't have to. So does my foster sis!
Don't I sound just perfect??? Well, please fill out an adoption application for me if you think I'll be a good family member. I know I would be because apparently I am quite a catch!
2-3-16 Updated Bio Arthur is a 3-4 year old, 8 lb. very handsome Yorkie mix. He is being fostered in Orlando, FL.
Arthur is feeling so much better after his nasty experience, thank goodness! He is required to be confined so his pelvic fracture heals, but after his last vet visit, she said he's very close to being as good as new! All he needs now is a dental, a neuter, and follow up x-rays to make sure he's good to go his forever home. He could also use another pound or two on him. Arthur will be ready for his forever home by the end of February.
After getting to know Arthur better, his perfect home would have a playmate. He LOVES to play! He tries so hard to play with his foster sister. He play bows, talks to her, (begs really) and tempts her with toys, but she's NOT interested. Poor Arthur! He also loves to be outside sunning himself and exploring, so a fenced yard would be a big plus. Arthur would be a great family dog. He would love some older kids, 10 and up, to romp around with.
Although he's an active guy, he knows how to calm down. He even goes into his kennel by himself to relax. He comes when called and his foster mom is working on sit and stay. He sleeps in his kennel all night without complaining. He's very alert and is a great watchdog. He always does his business outside and only has the very occasional slip up.
Arthur is so sweet and loving, he even gives kisses when he gets a bath! He loves to cuddle on the couch and sit on his person's lap.
If you are looking for a sweet, loving, active, handsome boy, Arthur is the one for you. Please fill out an adoption application and make Arthur your forever boy.
Updated Bio 1-15-16 Arthur is a 3-4 year old 8 lb. Yorkie mix being fostered in the Orlando, FL.
Hi! It’s me, Arthur here. I am feeling so much better! I still have to stay in my pen for about another 6 weeks to make sure my fracture heals, but I don't mind. Foster mom says that I'm a very good boy! I take my icky medicine with no problem because I want to get better, so I can go to my perfect family. That’s why I never complain about being in the crate.
Everyone tells me that I am so handsome with my pretty blonde hair! I sure love to kiss my foster mom when she takes me out and I think she likes it too! She cuddles me on the couch in a blanket at night and I love it! When she takes me outside to potty I try to run around, but she won't let me. I love being outside and I can't wait to go to my furever home so I can run around in a fenced yard with hopefully some older kids. I try to play with my foster sister and she says NO WAY! Hopefully my furever home will have another dog in the house that likes to play with me!
I am working on my potty training, and always go when I am let out, but sometimes I'm so excited about being out of the crate I mark. Foster mom doesn't like that very much, but she says I'll get better when I'm neutered. Whatever that is. If you are looking for a fun-loving, sweet, handsome, little guy, I'm your man!
Please contact foster mom with any questions. Thanks!
Initial Bio 12/31/2015 Arthur was an urgent rescue request from the Miami shelter. He was found as a stray and had been hit by a car. He needed urgent rescue so we acted fast. We had him transferred to emergency Vet on New Years Eve.
Lucky for Arthur his injuries look worse than they are. He has multiple wounds and a fractured pelvis. He will need to be crated for 6-8 weeks while his fracture heals. After that he will need to be neutered and then he should be ready for adoption in late Feb. or early March.
Emergency care is expensive. Please help us by donating to Arthur's care.
To date we've spent $880.89 on Arthur's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $195.00 in donations.
For more information, contact my foster parents at: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Sweet Buttercup is 10 years old and 10 pounds, a perfect 10. She is residing in Ft. Meyers, FL
THANK YOU TO BUTTERCUP'S RESCUE ANGELS!
Updated bio 5-4-16 Buttercup is a very sweet, 10 year young, 10 pound, adorable Yorkie girl. She is being fostered in Ft. Myers, FL.
Hi, it's me, Buttercup. It has been two weeks since my surgery and I am fully recovered. I have become more comfortable in my foster home. I love to sit on the recliner with my foster mommy and have my tummy or head scratched. If my foster mommy stops scratching I gently remind her with my paw that she needs to continue scratching me. I love to go for car rides. I sit so nicely in my car seat. I love being able to sit up and look out the window or lay down and take a nap. I also took my first swim in the concrete pond. I think my foster mommy called it a pool. My foster mommy held me in her arms and I floated. It was very relaxing. I don't chase toys, but I like to walk around with my toy in my mouth showing off. At night, I enjoy snuggling with my foster mommy in her bed. I am comfortable with other dogs. I love my foster fur brothers and have made friends with the neighborhood dogs. I am very happy with my foster mommy, but I am ready for my furever home. Don't forget to fill out an application to adopt me. You won't be sorry. I may be a senior girl, but there is lots and lots of life and years left in me yet. Wouldn't you like me spend them with you giving you so much love and kisses.
Updated bio 4-27-16 Hi, it's me, Buttercup. I am 10 years old and weigh 10 pounds. A perfect 10. I am being fostered in Ft. Myers, FL.
My foster mommy says I am a love bug. All she has to do is call my name and hold her arms out and I come running to her ready to be held. My foster mommy says I am a very good girl. I like short walks as long as the weather is not too hot. I also enjoy having the breeze blow in my face while riding in the puppy stroller.
I just had surgery for bladder stones so I will always have to be on a special diet. But my foster mom says it costs about the same as any good food. I would be happy with or without other dogs in the house. My foster mommy is working with me on meet and greet with other dogs and humans while walking. She says my manners are improving. I do mostly potty outside but have a few accidents while I am recovering from my surgery. Once I am healed my foster mommy thinks I will be really house trained.
You may think a 10 year old yorkie is old, but that's not me. I am so young at heart. If you are looking for a sweet pup to cuddle with and love, that's me. I am looking forward to my furever family, could you be the one for me?
Initial Bio 4/17/16 Buttercup is an adorable senior yorkie girl. She 10 years old and appears to be in good health. She weighs 12 pounds. Buttercup needs to lose about 2 pounds to be at her good weight. She is being fostered in Ft. Myers, FL
Buttercup is as sweet as her name. She arrived at her foster home just yesterday and already has given her foster mom lots of love and kisses. She is also getting along very well with her foster brother. Buttercup does not really like long walks. She much prefers to sit and be cuddled. That may be why she needs a little diet and some more exercise.
Buttercup will be taken to the vet very soon for a complete exam and we will know lots more abut her after that. Check back soon and learn more about sweet Buttercup.
To date we've spent $330.21 on Buttercup's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $580.21 in donations.
For more information, contact my foster parents at: Off2fl@gmail.com.

Daisy is a very sweet, but injured little 6 pound Yorkie girl. She is only 2 years old. Daisy is being fostered in Leesburg, FL
THANK YOU TO DAISY'S RESCUE ANGELS!
Anna Douglas, Jean deVegter, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Sarah Bartel, Sarah Davies, Susanne Andriano, Jane St. John, Tiffany Tomes, Marie Werle, Terry Danner, Wendy D'Uva, Linda Young, Denise Scafe
Updated bio 4-24-16 Daisy had her surgery and is recovering nicely from her hind leg amputation. She is getting around just great. Three legs are working for her as well as four ever did. She is still a little sore and not yet feeling great, but she has to be feeling better than she did when she had that horribly mangled leg just hanging there. Once her hair grows back in and maybe even gets a little longer than usual on her left hind end, it is likely no one will even know there is a leg missing.
She is about the sweetest dog ever. Her disposition and temperament are amazing. She has yet to bark, whine, or have any behavioral issues at all. She pretty much ignores the other dog in the home, but has never show a bit of aggression towards them. She only wants to be held, cuddled, and loved by her foster mom and dad. She likes to be in her crate which is a good place for her to rest and recover. She is mostly house trained and does her business outside, however if not taken out in time she will have accidents in the house.
Her foster mom and dad are not yet sure of the kind of forever home Daisy will need. Her real personality has probably not yet emerged, but once she is recovered they will know more about what she needs in a forever family. Her foster parents do know that she would not enjoy young children under the age of 14. She may not be a good playmate for another dog since they have not seen her show any interest in playing or in other dogs, but that may change.
Daisy will have her stitches out in two weeks. Until then she will continue to recover and her foster parents will continue to get to know the real Daisy. Daisy's surgery was expensive, please consider making a donation to Daisy. Let's show her how much we all care. More on Daisy coming soon.
4-19-16 Initial Bio. Daisy arrived at her foster home today and was immediately taken to the vet. Her left rear leg was severely injured and it was hoped that surgery could save the leg. Sadly her foster parents were informed that the injury was too severe and with the bone protruding through her skin, and the leg already showing no signs of response or feeling, the only option to save her life was amputation.
Daisy's leg has been bandaged up and she has done well on her three good legs. Tomorrow morning Daisy will have her surgical amputation and will begin her new life as the same adorable, loving dog, but now with 3 legs instead of 4. Dogs do well on three legs and once she gets her balance down and the repair has healed she will be able to get around with no problems at all.
Although Daisy has only been in her foster home one day she has already made herself at home. She has given kisses to everyone, her tail has not stopped wagging, and she has made friends with the other dogs in the house. Her foster parents can tell she has some pain. The pain medication has made her sleepy, but kept her comfortable. They know there is so much more to learn about this young little girl. When Daisy's surgery is complete and she is feeling better her foster parents will update her information. New pictures will also be posted of the new and improved Daisy.
Please keep Daisy in your thoughts as she goes through her surgery, and if you wish to help us help Daisy please consider making a donation towards her care. Daisy's life was so worth saving, your donations will help us continue to help Daisy and others like her.
To date we've spent $619.79 on Daisy's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $450.00 in donations.

Diesel is an 8 year old, 12 pound Yorkie Boy residing in Clearwater, FL
Just look at how handsome this fella is! Would he be a perfect addition to YOUR HOME?
Initial Bio 4/9/2016
Meet Diesel! He is an adorable 8 year old, 12 pound Yorkie boy being fostered in Clearwater Florida.
Poor Diesel recently lost his forever human Mamma who passed away too soon. His remaining family could not take him and reached out to UYR to help find Diesel a perfect new forever home.
Diesel is a super sweet boy who loves to play and snuggle. He is housetrained and gets along with other pets. Diesel does have some special needs however. He has a condition called Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency or EPI. You can read about this condition here EPI
Diesel's condition means that his pancreas does not make the enzymes necessary for food digestion. This is easily managed by a special diet and the addition of special enzyme power to his food twice a day. As long as he gets his enzymes added to his food there are no problems. However he MUST get this in order for his body to digest his food. Without the enzymes now matter what or how much Diesel eats it will be as if he was consuming nothing at all and he will rapidly lose weight and literally starve.
We are looking for a special adopter for him who can be committed to his care and diligent about adding his enzyme power to his prescription food. His enzymes cost about $70 dollars for a two month supply. His prescription food is about $35 for a month's supply. Please don't apply to adopt him unless you have the financial means to pay for his care and the commitment to administer his enzyme powder with his meals.
Diesel is all up to date on his care and just needs to be microchipped before he is ready for adoption. You can email his foster dad for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org
To date we've spent $0 on Diesel's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $200.00 in donations.
For more information, contact my foster parents at: Shall@catchthemquick.com.

Doogie is an 8 year old, 10 pound Yorkie Mix residing in Largo, FL
Doogie is going to be an awesome family addition! Could he be for you?
THANK YOU TO DOOGIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!
Updated bio 4/20/16 Doggie is a very friendly, happy little guy. He loves people and gets along with other small dogs, though he gets skittish around bigger dogs and will bark them. He also does not care for young children, but would be okay with children over the age of 12 as long as they are calm and gentle around him.
Almost all Doogie’s vetting is done. Doogie has undergone his dental cleaning and has beautiful pearly whites now. He also had a small cyst removed on the right side.
Doogie is looking for that special someone who would like to just hold him and cuddle with him all the time. He loves to be held like a baby and will put his head on your shoulder. He is very lovable and wants to be either on your lap or held every chance he gets. He snuggles up to your back at night. He would love to have a forever home with someone who wants a best friend to be with most of the time. He loves to go for long walks and would be a great walking companion. His foster mom has a doggie stroller so if he needs a break he can go for a ride.
Doogie is housebroken and waits to be taken outside for a small walk in the morning. He would do best in a home with someone to take him out often so his house training continues to be successful.
On April 28th Doogie will be ready for that special home with someone to love him forever! If you are looking for a lap dog that gives lots of kisses, Doogie is the one for you! If you want a best buddy to love and cuddle with, one who will be devoted to you for all his life, make Doogie yours forever.
4-3-16 Meet Doogie. He is our newest foster boy He is a very adorable 8 year old, 10 pound yorkie mix. He is being fostered in Largo, FL.
Doogie just came to his foster home yesterday. His owner could no longer care for him and sadly had to give him up. According to his former owner he is good with other dogs, good with kids, and even good with cats. Doogie is house trained too. Could it get any better?
Doogie has already settled in after only a day. He likes to stay by his foster mom’s side and loves her attention. She has taken him on a few walks and he really enjoys the exercise. He is an energetic guy.
Doogie needs to have a dental and get his vaccinations updated. After that he will be ready for his forever home. Doogie would be a great family dog with kids over the age of 9. He loves to run around so a home with a fenced yard would be nice too. If you think Doogie is the doggie for you, please fill out an adoption application for him. You won’t be sorry.
To date we've spent $564.65 on Doogie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $50.00 in donations.

Her tail wags so much it is just a blur.
Meet Hope! Hope is a 4-year-old (estimate), 10-pound female Morkie (Yorkie and Maltese Mix) residing in West Palm Beach, Florida.
THANK YOU TO HOPE'S RESCUE ANGELS!
Irene and Peter Havas
Updated Bio 5/04/16: Meet Hope! Hope is an approximately 4 year old, slightly underweight 10 lb Morkie (Maltese/Yorkie) that found her dirty, matted self at the local shelter, when she wandered away from her home. We think that is a good thing, because not only was she very matted, but she had a huge mammary tumor on her that must have caused her a lot of pain. Hope is being fostered in West Palm Beach, FL
Hope went for her second visit to the vet yesterday, where she was spayed and had her tumor removed. The vet could not say either way whether the tumor was cystic or malignant, but she did not see anything else that was a cause for alarm. They removed the tumor in it's entirety, and with the spay, we do not expect any more tumors to reappear as she no longer has the hormones that contribute to the growth of tumors. Hope is expected to make a full recovery and live a full life.
Hope is very playful and loves to play with the kitties in the house. The kitties on the other hand, don't appreciate all the attention. Hope has discovered if they don't run, they actually are not fun to chase, so she would do best in a house with cats that don't care about her and can't be bothered to run. She also gets along with the dogs, and her little tail just wags and wags when she meets other dogs. However, her foster brothers are smaller and can be a bit high strung, and that has caused some tension between her and them. We think she would do best in a home with either no other dog or a dog closer to her size if not a bit larger, and one that doesn't growl or snap at her. While Hope does have a bit of energy and would benefit from at least one daily walk if not more, she is fairly low key and does not bark very much. She walks great on a leash and stops when her person stops. Hope is fully house trained, but she does need to be let out in a timely manner. At the moment, she is going out every 4 to 5 hours with no accidents.
Hope has not been around children, but based on her happy, outgoing demeanor, we think she would do best with children over 12. She does not need a fenced in yard if she is walked daily.
Initial Bio 4/22/16: Hope was a stray that was turned into the shelter and even though Hope is as cute as can be, she couldn't be adopted out to the public as she has a massive mammary tumor. When her foster mom saw her on an urgent email list, she knew UYR would be there to give her the care and hope she needed to get better.
Even though Hope weighs 10 pounds, she is a bit underweight, and should gain a pound or two. She is a very friendly and outgoing dog, who seems to like everyone she meets and greets them with a constantly wagging tail despite the pain she must be in. The vet does not believe the tumor to be cancerous and it will be removed, along with her spay, on May 3rd. Hope has already had blood work done, and she passed with flying colors.
Even though Hope is very friendly and clearly was with someone that loved her at one point, she is very matted. We've tried to cut out most of the mats, but since some of them are so big and right at her skin, we've decided to let the vet shave off the more daunting ones when she goes under anesthesia for her surgery.
Hope has been with us for only several hours, but she seems to get along fine with little dogs. She did growl at the big dogs at the vet, so we are not sure how she is with them. We are also not sure yet how she is with cats. She seems to be house trained also and rides very nicely in the car. Hope is a young dog and has lots of energy, so she would do well with someone who could walk her a couple of times a day and spend time exercising her. We also feel that a home with no children under the age of 12 would be best for her. Stay tuned as we get to know Hope better!
To date we've spent $376.03 on Hope's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $20.00 in donations.

Katie and Timmie Together
Katie (and Timmy)
Katie and her brother Timmy are a bonded pair of 5 year old litter mates living in Fort Meyers, FL
This precious pair of adorable siblings are looking for a special home where they can be adopted together. Do you have room in your heart and home for this adorable pair?
Initial Bio 4/13/2016
Meet Katie a 5.5 year old, 13 pound Yorkie girl being fostered in Fort Meyers FL. Katie and her brother Timmy came into UYR after their owner passed away. They were litter mates and have been together their entire lives. They are a truly bonded pair so we are going to try VERY HARD to get them adopted together.
Katie (and Timmy) belonged to a person who was immobile and did not leave the home very much. Because of this, Katie’s (and Timmy’s) world was limited to their home where they lived almost exclusively indoors and knew a very small circle of humans. For this reason, they lack the social skills that most other dogs their age might have. They are both sweet dogs, but they are now being forced to adjust to a new life in a strange place away from the only people they have even known. This is another reason we feel that it is important to keep these two together if at all possible.
Katie (and Timmie) have just landed in their foster home. They will soon be going to the Veterinarian for exams and any necessary medical care. Please stay tuned for updates as we get to know this adorable pair of Yorkies better.
To date we've spent $0 on Katie (and Timmy)'s vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.
For more information, contact my foster parents at: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Nikkis injured leg
Nikki is a 6 year old, 14 pound Yorkie girl who was rescued from an urban shelter. She is heart worm positive and has orthopedic and soft tissue injuries from being hit by a car. Nikki is being fostered in Wellington, FL
THANK YOU TO NIKKI'S RESCUE ANGELS!
Christine Dwyer, Gina Papineau, Irene and Peter Havas, Jan Freeman, Jeanine Mayden, Deena Sloan, Sandra Wendt, Giovanna Melluso, Aileen De La Rosa, Marsha Chappell, Lorna Marrero, Phyllis Lewis, Karry Rogers, Cheryl Scrupski, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, June Somers, Marilyn Bays, Jo-Ellen Gasior, James Hufford, Hilda Bacardi, Karry Rogers, Irene and Peter Havas in memory of Buddy and Vanessa, Erik Ebert, Melanie Ortega, Wendy D'Uva, Sidney Porter, Sandra Spencer, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Linda and David Rothrock
Updated bio 4-27-16 Nikki is an adorable 6 year old, 14 pound, sweet yorkie girl. She is being fostered in Wellington, FL.
Nikki had surgery several weeks ago to repair a broken ankle. At some point over the last two weeks the bone from the ankle broke away from the shin bone. As a result the pin that was inserted during surgery is no longer doing anything and was removed. If her fracture heals, it will heal in an abnormal position. If it is stable and she uses it then she will not need further surgery. If it is unstable then we may need to pursue another surgery involving fusion of the joint.
Nikki started her heartworm treatment two weeks ago and seems to be doing well. She still has further treatments scheduled, and it will be several months before the treatment is completed and she can be retested and ready for her forever home.
At this time we are not taking applications for Nikki. We do not know what she will further need for her ankle repair, and she has at least two more months of heartworm treatment.
Nikki's medical care has cost United Yorkie Rescue quite a bit of money, but we would never turn her away and deny her any treatment. She may need further surgery and her heartworm treatment will continue for months. So we are turning to you to please help us with this in any way you can by making a donation to Nikki's care. Anything you can give will help us help Nikki. Our gratitude will be immense.
Updated bio 3/18/16: Nikki is a darling girl who is 6 years old and weighs 14 pounds. Nikki is being fostered in Wellington, FL
Nikki had surgery on her leg 2 weeks ago. The surgeon needed to insert a pin to stabilize her ankle. It was discovered it was her ankle that was broken and not her leg. She has a cast on now and seems to be doing very well getting around.
Nikki will be spayed and have her sutures removed very soon. Once she is healed from both surgeries she will start on her heartworm treatment.
Nikki is house trained. She rides nicely in the car and eats and sleeps well. Through all of this Nikki has been a real joy. Her foster mom said she is just the sweetest girl ever, a real sweetheart.
Nikki will not be ready for adoption for another 4 or 5 months. Her heartworm treatment, once it starts, will continue for at least 4 months. Therefore, we are not yet taking applications for her.
Nikki's care has been very expensive. So far it has cost United Yorkie Rescue over $3000. Please open your hearts to this sweet girl and give whatever you can to help us pay for and continue with her care.
Updated bio 3/2/16: Nikki is such a spunky, happy girl despite her injured leg and the heartworms. She gets along well with other dogs, big and small. She does not like cats! We are working on that. Nikki is completely house trained. She is a good eater and sleeps all night. She rides nicely in the care and is excellent on the leash.
Nikki visited with the vet today regarding her leg injury. Her leg was not actually broken but dislocated, which included injury to her ligaments surrounding the joints and a chip in the bone. If her ligaments heal well enough to support her leg she may be able to avoid surgery. It will be several weeks before the vet can determine this. Her heartworm treatment is on hold until the vet determines whether or not she will need surgery on her leg. Nikki will be visiting the vet again soon as he monitors her progress.
We do know that Nikki loves to run around as much as she can. She needs to be kept calm though because of the leg and the heartworms. Nikki won’t be available for adoption for several months as her leg heals and she undergoes heartworm treatment.
AT THIS TIME WE ARE NOT TAKING APPLICATIONS FOR NIKKI SINCE SHE WILL NOT BE AVAILBLE FOR AODPTION FOR SEVERAL MONTHS as her leg heals and she goes through her heartworm treatment.
Nikki's care will be expensive. Please find it in your heart to help us help her and donate whatever you can. Every dollar helps.
Initial Bio 2/26/2016 Nikki was rescued from an urban shelter and is heartworm positive. She also has orthopedic injuries that are like the result of being hit by a car. Right now we have just gotten Nikki from the shelter and are transporting her to the Vet to start receiving much needed medical care. Stay tuned for updates as we get to know her better.
To date we've spent $3770.06 on Nikki's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1570.00 in donations.

Rocky G is 11 years old, 8 pounds residing in Miramar, FL.
Rocky G has been transformed into a handsome boy!
What a difference a good haircut can make!
THANK YOU TO ROCKY G'S RESCUE ANGELS!
Holly Stavis, Barbara Carvalho, Irene and Peter Havas, Wendy D'Uva
Updated Bio 4/25/16 Hi everyone, It's me again, Rocky. Man, I gotta tell you guys that being a part of a family is seriously the BEST thing. I never gave much mind to people when I first got here and when someone tried to pet me, I flinched 'cause it was scary. I was used to keeping to myself, you know, but I gotta tell you, nice people are the best. I'm not pushy, but I love attention when I get it and I'm so happy to see my mom now that I wag my tail. I've also learned that curling up next to a person is SO nice, so if you pick me up and put me in a chair with you, I'll lay there peaceful and quiet as long as you want. I really like it when I get a nice scratch behind my ears, too, but I'm never pushy. If you don't have time, that's ok. I'm fine finding a nice soft spot to curl up on the floor. My foster mom says that I am so sweet and I thought that was funny. I'm not sure what there could possibly be to fuss about! I never bark, I never EVER potty on the floor and she says that's kind of unusual with us little guys. I still can't see all that well, but you'd never know it. My mom cleans my eyes out twice a day and puts my drops in and I sit there patiently until she's done. My eyesight isn't great, but I don't bump into anything because I memorize the room and I can see stuff if it's close enough. And the walks! Walks are the best! You'd never know I had bad eyesight watching me on my walks. Sometimes other dogs walk over and I like them, too. My mom says that I'm really smart and I'm the very best listener. A couple of times I put my paws up on the side of her bed because I thought she might like to go outside. Apparently, it was 2am, which must be code for she didn't and she said "Rocky, no," so I just shrugged my shoulders and went back to my bed and fell asleep. She didn't have to yell or tell me twice. I'm no dummy, after all, I understand what no means. Anyway, life is great and every day just keeps getting better. That's it for now!
Updated bio 3-18-16 Rocky is a very special, 11 year old senior pup. He weighs 8 pounds. Rocky is being fostered in Miramar, FL.
Hi everyone! It's me, Rocky. Oh man, do I feel better! When I first got to my foster mom's house, I felt terrible. I couldn't walk without falling over. I couldn't see anything and all I wanted to do was lay on this new soft thing called a pillow. I wasn't sure about everything at first, my foster mom kept giving me these baths and making me take this yucky medicine and used this loud thing that took off all my matted hair. Well, it's one week later and I feel awesome! I'm not bumping into things anymore and I love, love, love, going on my walks. I don't even mind the leash now. I never ever go to the bathroom on the floor, even if it takes my foster mom longer to get home from work than usual.
After living outside that whole time, I appreciate a nice clean place. Hey, you gotta have standards, right? I almost forgot to tell you about my teeth. It's kind of weird not having them anymore, but it hurts so much less now and the vet says that those teeth were infected and making me sick. My foster mom told me not to worry about not having them, my foster sister doesn't have any teeth either, and she eats just fine and is cute as a button. Our mom says that she'll save a lot of money on teeth cleanings, too, whatever that means. Anyway, if you're looking for a dog that is cool and chill and just happy to hang out, we should talk.
Initial bio 3-8-16 The first thing Rocky's foster mom thought when she rescued him from the animal shelter was that he was the saddest, most pathetic looking dog she had ever seen. His coat was serenely matted, his nails were long and overgrown, he was dirty and smelled pretty bad. He has periodontal disease and he will need a dental right away., so his breath was awful. But the worst was his eyes. He may be blind or blind in one eye. He has severe dry eye and the infection from his mouth is not helping the infection in his eyes.
Rocky has been at the vet clinic since yesterday getting cared for. He lost all his teeth during the dental.They just fell out in the vet's hand they were so rotted away. The vet removed some gunk from his eyes and will try to get more off later. It may be possible that he can see shadows. His eye pressure is lower than it should be so he will need eye drops to correct that. Rocky is spending his second night at the vet clinic and will come home to his foster home tomorrow. He will be bathed and groomed and now that his teeth are fixed and his eyes cared for he will be beautiful and smell wonderful.
The time Rocky did spend with his foster mom, she said he was the sweetest dog and just wanted to be loved. He seems very good natured and wants to please. We are not sure about much else with Rocky. We will know a lot more after his stay at the vet and he is recovering in his foster home.
This sweet boy will make a great pet for a senior couple or individual who wants a wonderful dog to love and cuddle with. Please help us with Rocky G and donate to his care.
To date we've spent $548.20 on Rocky G's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $99.00 in donations.

Rusty is an 8 year old, tiny 3.2 pound Yorkie boy residing in Ft. Meyers, FL
4-29-16 Initial Bio Rusty is a very tiny 3.2 pound little yorkie boy. He is 8 years old and being fostered in Ft. Myers, FL.
Rusty just arrived at his foster home last night. He has already had a chance to see the vet. We know Rusty will need all his vaccinations updated. He will need a heartworm test and a fecal exam. He will need to be neutered and to have a dental. Even though Rusty is 8 years old, he still has some baby teeth in his mouth that will have to come out during the dental. The vet also said he is a little too skinny and should be closer to 5 pounds. His foster mom will be working on getting a little weight on him and getting all his vetting done very soon.
We do know Rusty likes other dogs. He has already started to play with his foster sister. He walks great on the leash, but Rusty is not totally house trained. We are hoping that after his neuter he will not feel the need to mark. He currently is sporting a bellyband in his foster home.
Rusty is very cute and loves to give kisses and get love and attention. Because of his small size Rusty cannot go to a home with children under the age of 14.
Hi, this is Rusty. Just want you to know how well I am settling into my new foster home. I love to go for car rides. My foster mom has a seat that fits my little size just right. I also love to go for walks. For more exercise and fun, fun, fun, I love to chase a mini tennis ball. Everyone thinks I am adorable especially when I am chasing the ball. My foster mom has a lap that is perfect for me to sit on. Also, she lets me sleep in bed with her at night. I love to play with other dogs. I would prefer someone who is at home most of the time to give me the attention I deserve. I would consider myself a 10 except for one little issue. I need to be house trained more. I am getting better with my foster mom's help. I don't mind wearing a belly band or staying in a crate when my foster mom is gone. I am getting neutered and having my teeth cleaned next week. After that, I will be ready to go to my furever family. If you think a little fellow like me would be just right for you, please put in an application and put in my name, that's Rusty in case you forgot, for your first choice of a forever pup.
To date we've spent $291.84 on Rusty's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.
For more information, contact my foster parents at: Off2fl@gmail.com.

Sunny is growing up to be movie star handsome! He could be doing those pet food commercials...What do you think?
He is a one year old, 5 pound little Chorkie (Chihuahua/Yorkie mix). He is being fostered in Palm Coast, FL.
THANK YOU TO SCRUFFY'S RESCUE ANGELS!
Nancy Stanley, Nancy Stanley, Linda Ruff
Updated bio 5-1-16 Sweet little Sunny is only about a year old. He is a 5 lb Yorkie Mix. Sunny is being fostered in Palm Coast, FL.
Sunny is a shy but very active Chorkie (Yorkie/Chihuahua mix) with a highly inquisitive behavior. He was rescued from a hoarding situation where he spent his first 8 months in a crate not getting the amount of love and attention a puppy needs. He was then adopted from a local shelter, but the family found they really did not have the time for a puppy and again kept him crated. Just three days later his new family began noticing he was chewing at his feet and making big rub sores on his nose in his attempt to free himself from the confines of the crate. At that time they contacted United Yorkie Rescue to find him yet another new home. Sunny has now been re-homed too many times in his short life and his next home must absolutely be his furever home. Due to his past of being confined only to a crate, he cannot be crated. Because he has been left alone with no companionship for most of his life Sunny also requires at least one stay at home mommy or daddy.
Sunny’s next family needs to understand that he is still an active young dog and displays typical puppy behavior. He needs to be guided with patience and understanding. He is still learning and exploring and he craves and needs attention and playtime. Like a human baby he will get himself into trouble by putting things he finds around the house in his mouth and will chew on them. He is like a little vacuum and will pick up little objects he finds that are on the floor that could be potential choke hazards. He loves soft squeak toys and loves to chew out the little inner plastic squeaker! Sunny loves playtime with his person and other doggies his size and age; therefore another playmate in the household about his size and age is required.
Sunny also loves to run and play in the back yard or lay out in the warm sun so a fenced back yard would be a plus. He is a cuddly little fella who loves to be held, be in your lap, or snuggle up next to you in your bed. He loves people and he loves to be around people. Because of not having any consistancy in the past, he does need help continued help with housebreaking. Sunny is a happy energetic little boy that craves attention. He is looking for love and the perfect home that will guide him with patience and with the understanding that he is young and has been neglected in the past. If you think Sunny is the dog for you and you have another dog for him to play with and there is someone home a lot of the time, please submit an application for this adorable, happy, sweet little fellow. You won’t be one bit sorry.
Updated bio 3-7-16 Sunny is an adorable 9 month old, 5lb Chorkie (Chihuahua Yorkie mix). Sunny is being fostered n Palm Coast. FL.
Sunny was rescued from a hoarding situation where he spent his first 8 months in a crate. He was adopted from a local shelter as a gift to a teen boy, however the teen boy did not have the time nor the interest in having a dog and again kept him crated. Just three days later his new family began noticing he was chewing at his feet and making big rubbing sores on his nose in his attempt to free himself from the confines of the crate At that point they contacted United Yorkie Rescue to find him yet another new home. So at the tender age of 8 months old Sunny has been re-homed too many times in his short life. Therefore his next home must absolutely be his furever home.
Due to his history of being confined only to a crate, he cannot be crated. Sunny has been left alone with no companionship for most of his little life. He needs at least one stay at home mommy or daddy. His next family needs to understand that he is still an active very young dog and displays typical puppy behavior. He needs to be in a home that understands he is still learning and exploring and that he craves attention and playtime. Like a human baby Sunny requires supervision, as he will get himself into trouble by putting things he finds around the house in his mouth to chew on them. He is like a little vacuum cleaner, and will pick up little objects he finds that are on the floor that could be potential choking hazards.
Sunny loves soft squeak toys and loves to chew out the little inner plastic squeaker! Sunny loves playtime with his person and other doggies his size and age, therefore another playmate in the household his size and age is necessary. He also loves to run and play in the backyard or lay out in the warm sun so a fenced yard would be a plus.
Sunny is a cuddly little fella who loves to be held, be in your lap, or snuggle up next to you in your bed. He loves people and he loves to be around people. Because of his past neglect he does need help with house training, but he is a very smart little boy and he is learning. Sunny is a happy, energetic little boy that craves attention. He is looking for love and the perfect home that will commit to him forever and guide him with patience and with the understanding that he is young and has been neglected in the past. He needs an active life style, but no children under the age of 12, please.

He does not chew furniture, but like a vacuum he will pick up little objects he finds that are on the floor that could be potential choke hazards. He loves soft squeak toys and loves to chew out the little plastic squeaker and then chew on it!
Sunny loves playtime with his person and other doggies his size and age therefore another playmate in the household his size and age is something that Sunny really needs, Sunny loves to run and play in the back yard so a fenced back yard would be a plus. He is a cuddly little fella that loves to be held, be in your lap or snuggle up next to you in your bed. He loves people and he loves to be around people. Because of his past neglect he does need help with house training but he is a very smart little boy. Sunny is a happy energetic little puppy who is looking for love and the perfect home that will guide him with patience and the understanding that had been neglected in the past. His next home must be FUREVER!
If you think you are the right family for Sunny please fill out an adoption application for him and make this wonderful puppy your forever boy. Because of Scruffy's small size, he would not do well with children under the age of 14.
Updated bio 11/12/15 Scruffy, whose foster mom calls;Sunny is full of sunshine and love. He was previously a victim of animal hoarding. He was initially adopted from a local shelter then suddenly found himself being surrendered to United Yorkie Rescue when his new owners felt they did not have the time to commit to taking care of the requirements of a young energetic puppy.
Scruffy has come a long way in foster care, though he is still very shy and insecure. He is also a high energy puppy and requires a lot of attention and playtime. He loves to play with squeek toys! Without constant supervision Scruffy gets into puppy mischief. He is very small and fragile, but he thinks he is a big boy. He loves other small dogs, however he is very afraid of large dogs. Scruffy's foster mom and dad are working on his potty training. He is not all the way there, but he is learning.
Due to his tiny fragile size a home with children under the age of 14 will not be considered as the best placement for this little guy. Being a young little boy, Scruffy needs a home where he can run and play, preferably with another pup around his age and size.
Scruffy's coat is on the wiry side. He often looks like windblown, like he just finished playing and had a great time. If you think Scruffy may be the puppy for you, please submit an adoption application for this little puppy boy.
Update 9/17/15: Scruffy was dropped off at a shelter along with one of his siblings. The shelter separated them and adopted them out to different homes. Sadly for Scruffy after losing his companion and just when he thought he had found his furever home, his new owners decided they did not have time that was needed to raise a young dog. Because of the instability in his first months of life, he has become very timid and will require a home where there is at least one stay at home mommy or daddy.
Scruffy hates to be crated and crating him all day is not an option, as this has been his life over the past 8 months. He has made several sores on his nose and foot trying to get out of his crate.
He is a wonderful sweet little guy that is just looking for love and a home where he will be the little prince furever. Scruffy loves to be held, be in your lap, snuggle with you in your bed at night, and just be close to his person. He is not high energy but more of a low-key easy going little guy. In the morning he wakes with his tail wagging and makes little happy growls as his way of saying “good morning”!
Scruffy gets along well with other dogs and would love a playmate his size and approximate age. Because he has been crated and not given much attention, he does need help with house training. Scruffy needs and deserves a home where he will be loved furever.
Due to his small size and shyness, a home with children over the age of 12 is preferred. Although he is young, he is not your typical puppy. He is shy and quiet and very loving. If you have the time to commit to helping this little guy overcome his shyness and insecurities and can guide him with patience and understanding then perhaps this little man would be a pawfect fit for your home. Please understand that Scruffy is very young and he needs a family that can give him a lifelong commitment.
Initial Bio 9-17-15 Meet the cutest puppy in town. This is Scruffy, an 8.5 month old, tiny little 4.8 pound chorkie (yorkie/chihuahua) boy. Scruffy is being temporarily fostered in Leesburg, FL.
Scruffy came to his foster home today. He was surrendered by a family who adopted him from a shelter. After a short while they realized they just did not have the time to train and work with a puppy. They knew they could not give him what he needed. Scruffy may have some allergies, but his foster parents are working on that. He needs another parvo/distemper puppy booster shot and a second deworming pill in 2 weeks and he will be ready to finally find his forever home. This puppy has already been in 3 homes in such a short time. It's no wonder he is having hard time with his training and with feeling secure and settled.
He loves to run around outside and like most puppies he has a lot of puppy energy. A fenced yard would be great for Scruffy. When he is ready for his puppy naps he loves to snuggle and give kisses. He gets along great with other dogs and older kids. He won't be able to go to a home with children younger than 12 years old because of his small size.
Scruffy is already microchipped and neutered and will be fully vaccinated shortly. Please keep in mind Scruffy is a very young dog and he is very active. He will need a family that has the time and energy to train him properly and kindly with his manners and his house training while understanding the needs of an active puppy. Scruffy has many years of living left in him, so he needs a home with a family who can make at least a 15 year commitment to him.
If you think you are the right family for Scruffy, please fill out an adoption application for him. Watch for new pictures and updates on Scruffy as he settles into his foster home.
To date we've spent $42.00 on Sunny's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $45.00 in donations.

Timmy and Katie together
Timmy (and Katie)
Timmy and his sister Katie are a bonded pair of 5 year old litter mates living in Fort Meyers, FL
This precious pair of adorable siblings are looking for a special home where they can be adopted together. Do you have room in your heart and home for this adorable pair?
Initial Bio 4/13/2016
Meet Timmy a 5.5 year old, 13 pound Yorkie boy being fostered in Fort Meyers FL. Timmy and his sister Katie came into UYR after their owner passed away. They were litter mates and have been together their entire lives. They are a truly bonded pair so we are going to try VERY HARD to get them adopted together.
Timmy (and Katie) belonged to a person who was immobile and did not leave the home very much. Because of this, Timmy's (and Katie’s) world was limited to their home where they lived almost exclusively indoors and knew a very small circle of humans. For this reason, they lack the social skills that most other dogs their age might have. They are both sweet dogs, but they are now being forced to adjust to a new life in a strange place away from the only people they have even known. This is another reason we feel that it is important to keep these two together if at all possible.
Timmy (and Katie) have just landed in their foster home. They will soon be going to the Veterinarian for exams and any necessary medical care. Please stay tuned for updates as we get to know this adorable pair of Yorkies better.
To date we've spent $0 on Timmy (and Katie)'s vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.
For more information, contact my foster parents at: email@example.com.

Grace is an adorable 7.5 pound, 2 year old (estimate) Yorkie girl being fostered in Athens, Georgia.
THANK YOU TO GRACE'S RESCUE ANGELS!
Cheryl Geary, Tommy Piner
Updated Bio 4/1/2016 Grace came to us from a young single mother who did not have the time to care for her. Grace is as sweet as her name indicates. This little dog has an absolutely perfect personality. She gets along with all dogs and she absolutely adores humans. She strutted right into the Dogtor’s office where she had never been before and happily greeted every single customer (human and canine) as if they had been friends forever. She does not know a stranger. Grace is a beautiful Yorkie mix with a full beautiful tail. She has long “model like” legs to complete her elegant look. Grace is young and healthy and just needs to be spayed before she is ready to find her new forever person. Grace is small so she may not go to a home with children under age 12. Grace is not completely housetrained and needs someone who is patient and willing to continue to work with her as she makes steady progress. Grace is young and just waiting to give some lucky human or family a lifetime of love and affection. For more information about Grace, email her foster mom at email@example.com
Initial Bio 3/21/2016 Grace just came to us today. She was in a home where there was a small child with allergies and so something had to change. UYR was more than happy to be able to help Grace find her new forever home. As you can see she is just adorable! We have just gotten her settled into her foster home so please stay tuned for updates as we get to know her better.
To date we've spent $120.35 on Grace's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $125.00 in donations.

Sweet Lucky Eddie is 9 years old, weighs 7 pounds and resides in Canton, IL
Eddie is doing his happy dance and looking very handsome in his new bowtie!
THANK YOU TO LUCKY EDDIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!
Anita Konick, Savka Kotur, Stephanie Frey, Sandra Wendt
Update 03/26/16: Lucky Eddie here!! Don't I look handsome in my Easter bow tie!! I am ready & looking for love & my forever home!! I am a real sweetheart & I love the ladies!! Need someone to call my own!! Send my foster mom an email & she will tell you I am telling the truth! XOXO Love Eddie
Update 03/20/16: Eddie had his dental and lost all his teeth. He is feeling much better without those awful teeth. He was also neutered, micro chipped, has all vaccinations updated and tested negative for heart worms. Eddie is looking for a forever home. He would love another little dog for companionship. Bigger children that are able to treat him kindly would probably be ok with him. He does love attention.
Initial Bio 03/12/16: Lucky Eddie is a puppy mill rescue and he is 9 years old and weighs 7 pounds. Eddie will be neutered and get a very badly needed dental this week. When the vet looked at his teeth one of his canines just fell out in her hand. He is a very sweet quiet boy and he loves to be held. You can tell his teeth are causing him a lot of pain. However he still enjoys some soft food & boiled chicken. We will be working on potty training. He does seem to enjoy the grass & fresh air. We will update his progress after his neuter & dental. I'm sure he will feel much better.
To date we've spent $1015.74 on Lucky Eddie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $185.00 in donations.

Very tiny Kimmie, a Yorkie/Maltese Mix girl, is 6 weeks old, .69lbs residing in Indianapolis, IN
Although my Foster Mom appreciates it, she can not accept Adoption Applications or answer emails at this time. I really am too young and a lot of work. Please for now just keep me in your heart and donations always help!....Thank you, Kimmie
Initial Bio 05/01/16: Meet Kimber, AKA Kimmie. She is a six-week old Maltese Yorkie mix. She weighs .69 lbs. She is half the size of her litter mates. She loves to scamper around and follows me around the house. She is fed about every two hours to add some weight. Don't let her size fool you though, if she wants out of her crate, she will squeal like a pig till you let her out. The Dogtor wants her to be a full pound before we start doing tests to why she is such a peanut! We will keep you posted on how Kimmie is progressing!
To date we've spent $0 on Kimmie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Bio Update 4/24/2016: Hi everybody!! Rocco here!! Boy do I feel better than I did the first day I learned who UYR was!! I had been feeling very bad for a long time but wasn’t able to let anyone know. When I met my foster mom, she told me on my way to her house, “Little guy, there is something wrong with you and we will find out what is wrong and fix it!” Well, if there is one thing I have learned this last month it is “When foster mom and UYR say something, they REALLY MEAN IT!” I don’t understand all this stuff I hear foster mom talking about, but I just do what she tells me to do and all is well! I’m just happy I met UYR and all of you great friends of UYR and I’m gonna let foster mom explain it all to you now! Love you all, Rocco!
Foster mom here: Sorry this update is so late. This last 4 weeks have sure been a rollercoaster for little Rocco!! When he was surrendered, he was having problems throwing up after eating and it seemed that he needed to go out to potty very frequently, even though he was only going a very small amount. We went to the dogter the next morning and they gave Rocco some fluids, pain meds and medication for nausea, then drew some labs and did an x-ray. When we got the lab results back, it was apparent he had stones in his bladder and something was wrong with Rocco’s liver, but since he was over 5 years old, it was strange to just start having problems with a liver shunt. After more x-rays, more labs, ultrasounds and 2 internal medicine doctors, we now know Rocco definitely has a liver shunt, has a large bladder stone and smaller ones also and his liver is smaller than normal. With differing opinions from the 2 internal medicine dogters about what the best treatment would be for Rocco, I am very happy to say, Rocco is going to the University of Tennessee Vet School Small Animal Clinic and will be having surgery there. They wanted him to be on a special diet, take medication and get in the best shape he could by the time we go for his appointment. The plan is to do both the bladder surgery to remove the stones and the liver shunt surgery at the same time.
With that said, Rocco is scheduled for his pre-surgery appointment this Tuesday (4/26) and surgery on Wednesday (4/27). Foster mom loaded up the 5th wheel and will be staying close by while Rocco has his surgery and is in the hospital for a few days. (Foster mom wants to be sure everyone knows that UYR is not paying for any of the transportation or any other costs except for Rocco’s medical bills)
With Rocco’s unusual presentation of a liver shunt and longstanding and untreated symptoms, it has been a costly road and we still have the “big event” (surgery) to pay. If you would like to help Rocco with his journey to better health and hopefully a long, happy life ahead of him, please either go to his YouCaring link on our Home page of our website or just click on the PayPal link right below this information! Rocco is one of the sweetest little guys you could ever meet and we want to make sure he can share that sweetness for a long, long time to come! And Rocco sends kisses and says “Thank you friends!”
Update 03/07/16: Rocco's "ADOPTION IS ON HOLD" while we work to understand some of his health issues. Rocco's Foster Mom will keep us informed as the situation is further diagnosed.
Initial Bio 3/3/16: Meet Rocco, a 5 year old, 9.5 pound Yorkie that is being fostered in Carmel, IN. He just arrived at his foster mom's home late yesterday and still isn't sure about what has just happened to his life. One thing I know for sure, he is a very loving little guy and loves to snuggle whenever possible. Rocco is overdue on his vaccinations and is in need of a dental cleaning which will be done in the near future. Meanwhile, he will be adjusting to a new home and getting to know his foster brothers. Since Rocco is still getting comfortable in his foster home, I will update him soon when I know more about him.
To date we've spent $4932.46 on Rocco's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1415.00 in donations.

Sweet Birdie is a 6 years old, 8.8 pound Yorkie residing in Bettendorf, IA
Birdie is making good strides in her confidence level in this new big world!
THANKS TO BIRDIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!
Dawn Beck, Sheila Landis in memory of Miss Chickie Dog, Dawn Beck
Update 4/7/16: Good news the medicine is working and Birdie’s blood pressure is back to normal. She receives ¼ a pill with dinner. I put the pill in a bite of soft food and she eats it right up. She still eats fast and does not chew her food, so I am hand feeding her small bites. She is scheduled to be spayed and have dental done on April 15th. Birdie has gotten better at being petted. It works best to talk to her and say her name as you pet her and she is less likely to shy away. She started to give kisses a couple days ago, she will tentatively lick you then look to see if it’s ok. This morning she gave me a short nose kiss. Her personality is still slowly coming out. She is getting used to soft surfaces and will lay by me for 10-15 minutes in bed before getting up. I have a ramp on the side of my bed for easy access with a landing and she likes to lay on the landing next to the bed. She is still getting used to having space, she will spend time in the living room on the couch watching TV with me but then will go lay in her carrier (she can see me on the couch while in the carrier). After she lays in the carrier for a while she will come back to the couch. She spends more and more time on the couch every time. She has investigated the dog beds but prefers to be in her carrier. Potty training is still a work in progress. She will potty next to the pee pad but never on it. She is used to the harness to go outside and wags her tail a little when she sees it. Sometimes she will potty outside but not on a consistence basics. She likes to stand in the grass and let the wind hit her face. She is good around cats and dogs of all sizes. She will let strangers pet her and will sniff them but lays flat on the ground to be petted. She shows no interest in toys just watches other dogs play with them.
When I took Birdie to my parents to visit she was extremely anxious being in a different environment. She investigated the kitchen and constantly peed on the floor just where ever she was. When I went into the basement and left her in the kitchen with my mom she became extremely stressed and started pooping on the floor. When I came back upstairs she just wanted me to hold her, but we were at their house for several hours before I went into the basement. When I was in the kitchen my parents would call her name and she would go to them and let them pet her and hold her. While we were there she didn't show any of her personality that is starting to come out at my house. She is still uncomfortable with lots of space and they have a large kitchen. When we got home she was still stressed and laid on the couch touching me for hours, then she got an upset stomach. This weekend I am going over again to work on getting her comfortable in different environments but I am going to bring her carrier that she considers her safe place with me. That way if she gets nervous she can go into it. The carrier is a large one so she has plenty of room in it. I am also not going to stay as long. Birdie is VERY slowly getting used to things and I am not rushing her just going at her pace. She is a sensitive little girl and will need an experienced adopter.
Updated bio 3/27/16: Birdie's personality is slowly coming out. She is waging her tail when I come home and has gotten used to be petted. She is very sweet and started to give me kisses yesterday. We are working on potty training, walking on a leash, and playing with toys. She eats like she does not know when she is going to be feed again. So, I am hand feeding her soft food every couple hours so she does not over eat. We have seen the vet and she weighs 8.80 pounds and is heart worm negative. Birdie is missing some front teeth and has a couple chipped and cracked teeth that will need to be pulled when spayed. Luckily not all her teeth need to be pulled. X-rays showed she suffered from chronic bronchitis. She does have a weak trachea so she will always need to be walked with a harness. She suffers from mitral insufficiency which will requires another echo in one year to check. She has hypertension and started amlodipine today to get it under control. Her blood pressure was around 180. She makes a wheezing noise when she is curled up sleeping and the vet does not know if it is due to hypertension or a weak trachea. She cannot be spayed or have dental work until her blood pressure is normal. We are going back to the vet on 4/2/16 for a blood pressure check to see if the medicine is working or if we need to adjust the dosage.
Initial Bio 03/20/16: Birdie is a six year old yorkie rescued from a breeder. She has only been in my home for a couple hours and we will know more about Birdie after her vet appointment this week. Please watch for updates.
To date we've spent $1082.83 on Birdie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $90.00 in donations.

Roxy is a sweet 9 year old, 5 pound Yorkie girl residing in Blue Grass, IA
Initial Bio 04/16/16: Roxy is a 5 pound, 9 year old female Yorkie recently surrendered by her owners because she frequently nipped at their small children. In the short time we’ve fostered her we’ve found she is OK with adults but not with other dogs. She will need to be in a home that does not have children under 13 or other pets. Since she was caged a large extent of the time she does not like being restricted or left alone. She will need a home where an adult does not work outside the home.
Roxy is awaiting dental work on April 21st. She is clearly missing parts of 4 teeth and has major plaque indicating more will probably be removed.
I think her previous owners tried to train her on puppy pads but she is not housebroken in any way. She will potty outside when we take her out but does not ask or indicate she needs to go.
Roxy has food and toy aggressions but we are working on that also. She needs lots of attention and patience, but it will be worth it in the end.
To date we've spent $0 on Roxy's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.
For more information, contact my foster parents at: Slore4@gmail.com.

Oliver MI is a Yorkie mix, 9 years old and 15 pounds residing in Holland, MI
Oliver MI is in desperate need of financial help and all your good thoughts to meet his medical needs including Heartworm Disease!
THANK YOU TO OLIVER'S RESCUE ANGELS!
Sandy Pagnotta, Holly Stavis, Kathryn Fore, Sheila Landis in memory of Miss Chickie Dog, Anne Faasse
Update Bio 04/25/16: Oliver visited the dogtor today. He had another Heart Worm test and an ultrasound. He is still very HW positive! We have decided to change his treatment to the injections. He is also scheduled for neutering on May 4th. We will being the new HW+ treatment after that.
The dogtor thinks he’s about 9 years old and we now know that due to his cataracts he is completely blind in his left eye and 50% in his right. He also has arthritis in his hips, which prevents him from doing stairs.
Even though Oliver has some hindrances, he is a very sweet boy, and his lack of vision doesn't bother him at all. He walks very well on a leash and gets along with my Yorkie and my grandkids.
Oliver won't be adoptable until June when he finishes his HW treatment, but if you think this loving quiet buddy may be just right for you, please fill out an adoption application on the UYR website.
Update Bio 04/06/16: Oliver has been with me in Michigan for a few weeks now and his sweet personality is really coming out. He is a 17 lb. Yorkie mix. We first thought that he was 6-7 years old but due to his compromised eye sight and arthritis he may be a little older. He is a little more than half way through his heartworm treatment and is hardly coughing anymore. Even though he can't see well, it doesn't seem to bother him. He has figured out his new surroundings and only occasionally bumps into things.
Because of his arthritis he can't do stairs. I have stairs and he has learned to wait patiently for me to carry him up or down.
He is such a sweet buddy. Gets along well with other dogs and children. He follows me around and loves a good scratch. Sleeps all night in his crate and is so happy to see us in the morning. If you think he may be just the buddy for you, fill out an adoption application, and as he gets closer to being adoptable, I will contact you.
Update Bio 02/27/16: Oliver has now been relocated from Illinois to his new Michigan foster home. He is a sweet little buddy who's roughly 6-7 years old. He's being treated for heartworm and kennel cough right now. He has to have treatments for about 7 more weeks, so no applications for adoption yet. However, Oliver would appreciate it if you keep checking in on him. I will keep you updated as he progresses.
Initial Bio 2/15/16: Hi everyone, my name is Oliver and I'm a Yorkie mix, possibly mixed with poodle. I am about 6-7 years old, and weigh 15 lbs., but I could stand to lose just a little weight. I am a very lucky boy because I was in a shelter in a rural farming community when UYR pulled me because they heard I had medical issues. Turns out I'm heartworm positive and had been at the shelter for 2 months without receiving treatment for my heartworms! Right now, I also have a severe case of kennel cough, which should go away after being treated with antibiotics. My most important issue is that I am heartworm positive, which has quite the recovery process, and I will have to be on strict crate rest the entire time during my treatment. I am a very sweet boy and my past life might have been awful, but now that UYR has saved me, I'm looking forward to a much better life. I am crate trained, but not neutered so I like to mark everything. However, I do listen very well if I'm caught before starting to mark, so I should be housetrained in no time once I'm off crate rest. I get along with other small dogs, but I do not like cats at all...I just want to eat them! I will not be able to go to a new home until I am heartworm free, neutered and vaccinated, which will be at least several months down the road. If you would like to apply in advance to be considered to adopt me, please fill out an application. My treatment will be very expensive, so please consider donating to my vet care and stayed tuned for progress updates! Love, Oliver
To date we've spent $556.57 on Oliver MI's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $182.00 in donations.

Initial bio 4-6-16 Axl is a 6 year old, 7 pound Yorkie boy being fostered in Winston Salem, NC.
Axl came to us from a home where his owner no longer was able to give him the attention he needs. He wanted the best for Axl so he reached out to UYR for help in finding him a perfect new forever home. Axl is a very sweet little boy. He loves to be held and with his person. Axl enjoys exploring in his fenced in yard with the companionship of another same size dog in which to romp and play. Axl gets along well with everyone, even the cat, and gladly rewards his attention with a sweet kiss. He is familiar to the leash, however needs a little training, and he is doing well using training pads. A gated area is required as he is very unhappy in a crate.
Axl's foster mom noticed he was having some persistent sinus issues so she took him to the Vet for evaluation. In order to really determine what the root of the problem is they will need to get specimens from his sinus to send to the lab. Axl also needs to have his teeth cleaned and be neutered. He will have some of this done on May 10th and at that time additional xrays and sinus washings will be taken to get a better picture of what might be going on with Axl's sinuses.
As we are still learning about this sweet boy, his foster mom is considering every application for Axl and will do everything possible to find him the most perfect furever home. Please stay tuned for more information as we continue to enjoy learning all about Axl.
To date we've spent $404.87 on Axl's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Bo is a 9 year old 11.5 pound Yorkie boy being fostered in Ashland City, TN. Bo has heart worms and undergoing the long and unpleasant treatment to get well. He could use your help to pay for his treatment.
THANK YOU TO BO'S RESCUE ANGELS!
Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Irene and Peter Havas in memory of Buddy and Vanessa, Sheila Landis in memory of Miss Chickie Dog, Mary Ireland, Yorkies Lost and Found Nationwide,
Updated Bio 4/20/2016
Bo has begun his heartworm treatment and has now completed the toughest part. His injections are now behind him and he is on activity restriction while the medicine works its magic to kill the heartworms that have invaded his heart. Bo is loving the extra attention from his foster Mom and has even started his own Facebook Page called Bo the Rescue Dog!
Bo is a fun and funny little guy. He has a very adorable look about him due to his permanent “tongue out” grin and his perpetually messy hair. Bo has lost all of his front teeth due to neglect but that does not seem to affect him as he can still eat and chew just fine. He likes his hair “messy” and every time you brush it flat he will rub it with his paw to make it stand up again LOL. He likes the “spiked” look!
He loves to be close to his person as in jammed up next to them as tight as his fat little body can get. However, he does not give kisses and if you try to catch him he will play “hard to get” and make you chase him around the house like a little piglet. Once you stop he will stop too and then he will approach you. This is one of Bo’s little “catch me” games. He makes his foster Mom and Dad laugh every day. His little quirks and quirkiness will make everyone who meets him fall in love.
He LOVES food and his very food motivated. He is overweight and needs to lose a pound or two but that is very challenging to do while he is on a very restricted activity. He is on a reduced calorie diet but so far his weight remains the same. We are hopeful that when he is off of his activity restriction that exercise will help. For now, Bo and his foster Mom are happy to be maintaining his current weight. Bo is a very “chill” dog. He does not require a lot of stimulation or activity, he is happy to just go with the flow and hang out with his human. He travels well in the car and loves to go out in the RV with his foster Mom and Dad. He is okay with other dogs and cats but would also be fine as an only dog. Bo is not housetrained but he will go outside if taken very frequently. If not, well Bo will go wherever he wants. We will be working on this in his foster home.
We think Bo will be ready for adoption around the end of May. We are taking applications for him already. He will still need to have one final heartworm test in a few months just to make sure everything is clear but we feel that if all goes well over the next month he can go ahead and find his new forever person. If you think you might be a great match for adorable quirky Bo, then apply to adopt him or email his foster mom at email@example.com for more information.
Bo is counting on knowing that there are many kind, caring and generous humans out there who will help him and help UYR pay for his care. Every single penny donated to help Bo will go directly towards his care. If you can donate even a SMALL amount towards his care it would be SO VERY APPRECIATED by Bo, his Foster Mom and Dad and all of us at United Yorkie Rescue. To donate towards Bo's care, please click the PayPal button below and THANK YOU SO MUCH!
Initial Bio 3/14/2016 Bo has just landed in his foster home. He came from an owner with several other dogs including two Yorkie mix puppies Hatch and Hank (also surrendered to United Yorkie Rescue) who are Bo’s 10 week old sons. Bo’s owners could not afford to give him the care he needs so they reached out for help.
Bo has some serious medical needs that we have already begun to address.
The most serious of these is that poor Bo has heart worms. Heart worm disease is very prevalent in dogs who are not given regular heart worm prevention medicine. It is easily prevented but unfortunately it is not easily treated or cured. Because Bo did not have the benefit of heart worm prevention medications prior to rescue he will now have to go the long, painful and unpleasant treatment regimen. This consists of oral medication and a series of painful injections into his spine. He will also have to be confined during the treatment to minimize the stress on his heart while the adult heartworms die, degenerate and are slowly absorbed into his system and eliminated from his little body. This will not be a pleasant experience for Bo, but sadly this is the only known effective treatment.
Another pressing health concern for Bo is the terrible condition his mouth is in. He has only two remaining teeth and these were severely infected as well as his entire mouth. Bo is already a permanent “tongue out” boy due to the absence of teeth that hold the tongue in place. We think it makes him even more adorable. He had a major dental procedure today and is now on antibiotics to clear up the remaining infection. All infection must be gone before he can begin his heart worm treatment which will last for 4-6 months. For this reason, Bo will not be adoptable for quite some time.
Beau is also quite overweight. he currently weights 11.5 pounds and should be at around 7-8 pounds for his frame. His former diet included a lot of table scraps so his diet needs to improve. He will start on a soft prescription weight loss food today that should help him slim down.
So far Bo is very sweet, and gets along fine humans and with other animals. He is not house trained but we will work on that in his foster home. For now he wears a belly band to help with that. Beau HATES BATH TIME. If he sees you running a bath and getting out the doggie shampoo he will quickly get into his "escape and evade" mode LOL.
Bo has just arrived in his foster home. He has a very long path to recovery ahead of him. His care is going to be VERY EXPENSIVE. Bo is counting on knowing that there are many kind, caring and generous humans out there who will help him with each step of his journey. Every single penny donated to help Bo will go directly towards his care. If you can donate even a SMALL amount towards his care it would be SO VERY APPRECIATED by Bo, his Foster Mom and Dad and all of us at United Yorkie Rescue. To donate towards Bo's care, please click the PayPal button below and THANK YOU SO MUCH!
To date we've spent $734.62 on Bo's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $125.00 in donations.

THANK YOU TO KIRBY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Updated bio 5-4-16 Kirby is a 7 year old, 6 pound little Yorkie boy. He is being fostered in Nashville, TN.
Hi everyone, it's me Kirby! Can you believe my fabulous transformation? It's been 6 months since the amazing United Yorkie Rescue stepped in to rescue me from the deplorable conditions at the puppy mill. So much has happened! Foster mom has spoiled me with cuddles, treats, and lots of love. My foster brothers have taught me to play, and fetch and be a good boy. Sometimes I get in trouble because I still "mark," but that's okay. Foster Mom says we are working really hard to break the habit! I completed my heartworm treatment and now I have an appointment July 12th to be neutered and get my teeth cleaned. I can't wait! It's been a long road, but I couldn't have done it without friends like you! If you want to continue to help me on my journey, please send a donation to help with my care, it has cost United Yorkie Rescue a lot of money, but I am so worth it,. Oh, and don’t forget to send some love my way. Xo, Kirby.
P.S. Foster Mom didn't want to get my hair cut- it took so long to grow- but I couldn't see... We both agree that I look oh so handsome! What do you think?
Updated Bio 4/5/2016
Hello there EVERY PAWDY! It's me, Kirby! It has been a while since you have heard from me......I have been a very busy boy! Why with Valentine's Day, and Easter and all the activities at my foster home I have a very busy social calendar. I get up each morning and go to do my "business", then I come in and have my yummy breakfast with my fur-siblings and then PLAY time of course. My foster Mom and Dad call me and the boys here "3 Dudes" and they both love us all very much! I have been undergoing treatment for my heartworms for a long time now but am happy to report that the end is in sight FINALLY! I hope that by June I will have all that behind me, get my neuter and dental done and be ready to live life to the fullest! I am so grateful to UYR for rescuing me from that awful puppy mill where I lived in a wire rabbit hutch my whole life. Now I have all the love and care I couldn't even dream of before. And thank you to those who have supported me and donated towards my medical care which is still ongoing. If you can help even a tiny bit that would be TOTALLY PAWSOME! Just click the You Caring button below and give what you can. Thanks for listening and Puppy Kisses from Kirby to You!
Updated bio 2-9-16 Kirby is doing great! He's a whooping 9 pounds now. He loves to play, cuddle, run, eat yummy food, and get belly rubs! We've had a lot of snow lately and he LOVES to play in it!
He is still marking in the house, but his foster parents are using bellybands and being diligent about talking him outside to do his business.
It was originally planned to have Kirby neutered and have his dental at the end of February. After the vet talked to the pharmacy company that suggested his treatment plan, the vet decided to postpone all surgery until he tests negative for Heartworm disease. They will do that test six months after his last treatment... So June.
He is a favorite at Berry Hill Animal Hospital! Everyone loves him and his cute little face! You can see his picture. That is his dogtor, Dr. Kirkpatrick holding him and one of the vet techs is smiling beside him.
At this time we are not accepting applications for Kirby as he will be in his foster home until at least June. Please check back for updates. When we know he is ready for his forever home applications will then be accepted.
Updated bio 11-16-15 Kirby is a 7 year old fellow. He weighs 7.5 pounds and is being fostered in Nashville, TN.
Hey, everyone! It's me, Kirby. A lot has happened since my last update. I really do love my foster mom, dad, and brothers. Despite coming from deplorable conditions at the puppy mill, it has been very easy for me to show love! There is nothing better than getting and giving love to my foster family.
I'm still working on this "potty training" thing, but foster mom isn't worried, because she said I'm smart and catch on easy. Also, my skin is healing up nicely, thanks to the warm baths with my special shampoo. I even like being blow-dried! And boy oh boy, do I smell great. This is sure the life. The day United Yorkie Rescue took me from that horrible puppy mill place was the luckiest day of my life. My next luckiest day will be the day I get my forever family.
I had my second DOGtor visit today and it's been confirmed I do have heartworms. It's going to be long road of recovery -- For those of you who don't know how treating heartworms works....I'll be given heartgard and antibiotics, prednisone, and a series of 3 injections over a 3 month period.
I won't be adoptable until all of that is over and that will be close to March of 2016. You can still apply to adopt me but my Foster Mom says she will just be collecting applications until we get closer to time for my treatment to be done. That way there will be a bigger group of homes for her to choose from so that I find the one that is JUST RIGHT FOR ME!
During this time I have to keep calm, which will be hard, because I'm full of energy. I sure will appreciate your love and friendship during the rough time ahead. If you would like to help me in my recovery and donate towards my expensive treatment, please give whatever you can. Every penny will help. just click on the PayPal link below. Thank you so much XOXO, Kirby
Initial Bio 11/06/15: Kirby was taken into UYR from the Animal Rescue Corps puppy mill rescue operation in rural Mississippi. The Animal Rescue Corps in collaboration with law enforcement agencies responded to a tip from a concerned citizen found Kirby and almost 70 other small breed animals living in terrible conditions. They were living in wire cages outdoors exposed to the elements. These dogs were rescued and brought to the safety of the ARC temporary shelter in Lebanon TN.
As a rescue partner, UYR was asked to assist with helping Kirby and 5 other Yorkies receive continued medical care and eventually a new forever home where they will become treasured family members. Kirby's luck has definitely taken a turn for the positive and he had this to say after his visit to the Dogtor today:
Hi UYR Family & Friends! My name is KIRBY! We met briefly this morning/yesterday, but I wanted to share more about my life with you….. Today I visited the DOGtor for the very first time! As you can see, I have a lot of medical issues: I am heart worm positive (so I will have a long road of recovery ahead of me!), I have staph infection on my skin (which explains my hair loss) and I am in terrible need of a dental exam. Plus, foster mom is determined to fatten me up, because I only weigh a measly 6 pounds and you can see ALL of my ribs and backbone. Despite having it hard, I am a very positive 7 year old! I am full of energy: I love to play with foster mom and my PAWsome foster brothers! But because of my life at puppy mill, I still have A LOT to learn about being a gentleman. Foster mom is showing me extra love, nursing me back to health and teaching me how to be a good boy! I will definitely need LOTS of support from my UYR family & friends, so please…. Help a fellow Yorkie brother out by contributing towards my care!
P.S. - I got my first bath with my special shampoo (I could get used to that kind of pampering!) and I love it! Splish Splash Kirby LOVES takin' a bath :)
To date we've spent $1383.80 on Kirby's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $579.00 in donations.

Kristy is a 12 year old, 8 pound sweet girl residing in Cordova, TN
THANK YOU TO KRISTY'S RESCUE ANGELS!
Irene and Peter Havas
Initial Bio 04/18/16: Kristy belonged to an older woman who passed away. The remaining relatives kept her for a time but were too busy to give Kristy the time and attention she deserves so they reached out to United Yorkie Rescue for assistance in finding her a new forever home. Kristy is such a little love. She is adjusting well to her new life in her foster home. She loves her fur siblings and is just an absolute doll. Kristy likes to sit on the sofa with her foster mom and dad and her foster sisters. She loves to cuddle and sit in a nice warm lap.
Kristy is healthy and up to date on her care but could benefit from having her teeth cleaned. She will have that done this week. After that, she will be ready for adoption. Kristy would do great with someone who is home most of the time and would like a sweet, beautiful snuggle bug to spend lots of time with. Kristy needs some help and patience in the house training department and is working on that in her foster home.
Please don't pass Kristy by because of her age. Yorkies can live a very long time and Kristy has lots of love left to give. You can email her foster mom for more details at firstname.lastname@example.org
She has just landed in her foster home. Stay tuned for updates as we get to know her better.
To date we've spent $682.00 on Kristy's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $520.00 in donations.
For more information, contact my foster parents at: email@example.com.

Sweet Razie is about 3 years old and 14 pounds residing in Byrdstown, TN
Razie will be working on his confidence skills too!
THANK YOU TO RAZIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!
Updated Bio 4/26/16 Razie, aka Raspberry, is getting better everyday. He sleeps with his foster mom and the moment he gets up in the morning he rolls on his back and kicks up his feet and then licks her hand in appreciation for the good life she has shown him. He does a happy dance before he eats in the morning that makes us laugh. He has been going for morning walks and absolutely loves it. New experiences do still scare him but we work with him to alleviate his fears. Razie has the cutest under bite and looks like he is smiling. His potty training is complete as he follows his foster dogs out into the fenced yard and hasn't has any accidents in the house. Razie is still hesitant and prefers to keep us at arms length but will let us pick him up when necessary. He does take treats from our hands so it will be only a matter of time before he totally trusts humans. Razie is a wonderful dog and a pleasure to foster and there is no doubt he will make an awesome pet for a special person. Razie is scared of children and will do best in an adults only home.
Updated bio 3/12/2016 Razie is an adorable 3 year old, 14 pound yorkie boy. Razie is being fostered in Byrdstown, TN
Sweet Razie was rescued from a hoarding situation where he lived with almost 70 other yorkies. Poor fella spent almost a month in a shelter before United Yorkie Rescue got a call to rescue him.
Razie still prefers the comfort of his crate where he finds refuge from so much going on around him. Since his arrival, he gotten a bath, and been to the vet for all his vaccinations. He has been neutered and microchipped. So in less than a week he has had lots of changes. Slowly he is learning life in a real home is not a bad or scary thing.
A few words from Razie himself.....
I really don't know what to make of all these changes. I am very happy to be out of that shelter. That place was frightening with all the noise and horrible cages. This foster home is so nice. It is quiet here and I have a bed and a crate that stays open. I prefer to hang out in the crate for now. There is a huge fenced yard here, but my foster mom makes me walk on a leash with a harness outside for now. You see I ran from her for 45 minutes the first time she let me outside. I really don't like this leash thing but now I realize she isn't chasing me, we are actually attached. There is a cat here that wants to me to chase her. I won't because I don't want to get in trouble. The older dog is trying to help me learn the way things work. Until I fully get this potty thing down I get to wear a bellyband. My foster mom is really nice and has me come sit on the sofa with her for a little while so she can love on me. She told me she knows I will eventually love being with humans and I will even get a forever family.
Razie is making amazing progress. His foster mom is working with him on a leash and harness. His potty training is going VERY well. A perfect forever home would be one without small children as loud noises and fast movements do frighten him. He would prefer a home with a fenced yard so he can run around.
If you are interested in making Razie part of your family, he would love a forever home. He is getting used to the ways of people and will be the most grateful, loving dog you could ever want.
3-5-16 Initial Bio. Razie is an approximately 3 year old big fellow. He weighs 14 pounds. Razie is being fostered in Mobile, AL.
Razie and his housemate Kasper just came into their foster home from a severe hoarding situation. Razie and Kasper were living with over 70 other dogs. Razie has not left his crate since getting to his foster home, but he has allowed his foster mom to pet him a few times. He is pretty scared right now and is not yet ready to venture out of his crate.
Razie will need to be socialized and completely vetted. That will happen soon. He is a very young dog and there is no doubt that in time he will be a great pup. His foster parents will be working hard to socialize Razie and get him to understand that people are kind and caring and loving.
Please follow Razie's progress as his foster parents take him on his amazing journey. Updates and pictures coming as Razie learns what kindness and love are all about.
To date we've spent $199.59 on Razie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.
For more information, contact my foster parents at: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Updated Bio 4/5/2016
Willow came through her knee surgeries with flying colors and is now recovering in the comfort of her foster home. She is currently in rehab, with her foster mom doing daily stretching exercises with Willow and also giving her scrumptious muscle massages that Willow likes a lot! She is able to walk without her sling to support her and by all appearances is headed for a full recovery. We are still WAY BEHIND covering the cost of her care so please help us out if you can be clicking on the PayPal button below to help us continue to pay Willow's Vet bills and THANK YOU!
Updated Bio 3/24/2016
Poor Willow simply cannot catch a break. She came to use last summer with a chest full of mammary tumors. This was after bearing many litters of puppies back to back and not receiving good medical care. UYR had Willow’s mammary tumors removed surgically, had her teeth cleaned, got her all up to date on preventative care and thought this sweet girl would be adopted very soon. But this was not to be the case for poor Willow as we noticed she would sometimes struggle to breathe and become very anxious. A specialist consult revealed that Willow suffers from chronic bronchitis. This condition meant that Willow would need special medication for the rest of her life in order for her to simply breathe normally. Willow uses an inhaler twice a day now and it has made her life much better. Once again, we thought Willow’s struggles were behind her and that she would finally be ready for adoption. But Willow’s foster Mom noticed that Willow was limping and would cry out in pain. A trip to the Vet confirmed what we feared. Willow was diagnosed with Grade 4 (severe) luxating patella disease. Luxating patella in dogs mean that the knee cap migrates out of place to the side of the leg. There are grades 1-4 and Willows is the most severe. And that isn’t all. It was also discovered that Willow had a ruptured ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament) which is also part of the knee joint. When the anterior cruciate ligament ruptures (is torn), the joint becomes unstable and the femur and tibia can move back and forth across each other causing severe pain and lameness. The only cure for Willow’s lameness and pain was more surgery to repair both conditions. The cost of this surgery is around $3000.
When UYR accepts a dog into our rescue, it is for life. For better for worse, in sickness and in health and because Willow is ours we will do whatever it takes to get her healthy and out of pain. Of course, we can’t do it alone. Up until this most recent diagnosis we had already spent over $3000 on Willow’s care and today we paid an additional $2857 to the hospital where her surgery was performed yesterday. Tonight Willow will return to her loving foster home and a warm welcome. Willow will need careful rehabilitation to make sure she gets a good outcome from her surgery. The total amount spent for Willow’s care as of today is around $6000 and is expecting to climb. To date with your help we have collected $1634 in donations for her which leaves us with a huge deficit. To those of you who have donated to help her THANK YOU so much! If you are able to help us play catch up with Willow’s expenses, we (and especially Willow) would be so very grateful. Even a small amount is a huge help and every penny will go directly towards Willow’s care. If you can help us, please go to Willow's You Caring Site Willow's Fund Raiser
Updated Bio 3/4/2016
Willow has had some rough breaks in life. She was a breeder female who had many litters of puppies before she came to us. She developed mammary tumors and her former owner surrender her to us because of this. In our care, Willow had surgery to remove the tumors. Fortunately, the tumors were benign and now Willow is past all of that and should go on to live a full and happy life. After Willow’s surgery her foster Mom noticed that she had a pattern of rapid breathing and would sometimes become anxious as if she could not breath well. United Yorkie Rescue had Willow evaluated by a pulmonary specialist and as it turns out, Willow has chronic bronchitis which has gone untreated her entire life until coming into rescue. This condition is very similar to asthma and means that Willow needs to have medication daily. She takes Flovent (FLUTICASONE PROPIONATE) twice a day through her little doggie inhaler. She is very used to this and does not mind at all. The treatments are not difficult to perform and do not take very much time to administer. The biggest issues with her medication is the expense. Her inhaler meds currently cost about $125 per month if bought though a U.S. pharmacy. However, these are due to go off patent sometime during 2016 and when this happens the cost of her medication should decrease substantially. You can order her medication through a Canadian Pharmacy for about a 25-50 % cost reduction. Anyone considering adopting Willow must have the financial means to afford her medication as she will need to be on it for the rest of her life.
Willow is just the sweetest little girl EVER. She is so gentle, mellow and loving. She gets along great with other pets in her foster home. She loves all people and has never known a stranger. Her favorite thing is to give her person non-stop kisses. Willow is not a fan of being crated or trapped in a small area and this makes her very anxious. We think this is likely due to her days as a breed dog. She likes to have full run of the house so a person who is home a lot would be perfect for her. Willow had issues with house training when she came to us. She has been working super hard on this in her foster home and has made huge progress. However, if she isn’t taken out frequently she can still have “accidents.” For this reason, her foster mom will put a diaper on Willow if she has to leave her for a few hours.
Willow’s best fit for a home would be one where someone is home with her a lot. She is not a huge fan of traveling in the car but she does okay when car travel is necessary. She needs someone who has the time and financial means to administer her twice daily medications and to take her outside frequently for potty breaks. The most important thing Willow needs is a dedicated person who will love her for the rest of her days. You will NEVER find a dog sweeter than Willow. She so worth the effort and expense!
We have gotten all of Willow’s medical needs addressed but we are still paying for the care she has already received. If you would like to help us with the cost of Willow’s care it would be SO APPRECIATED! Just click the PayPal button below.
And check out Willow’s video
Updated Bio: 1/06/2016. Before being taken in by United Yorkie Rescue, Willow's life consisted of nothing but having litter after litter of puppies. When she got here Willow had many medical issues that needed to be addressed. She had several mammary tumors, severely damaged teeth and really bad ear infections. United Yorkie Rescue has since had her mammary tumors removed successfully, her dental needs addressed and resolved her ear infections. However, we still noticed that Willow had a very rapid respiratory rate and was having difficulty breathing at rest. She also didn't seem to have much energy. Willow has been to see a respiratory specialist and after additional tests it was discovered that Willow suffers from chronic bronchitis. The good news is that this condition is manageable with daily medications. Since beginning treatment, Willow has become a new dog! She was already sweet and loving, but now she has more energy and runs around and plays like a puppy! Willow is looking for a forever family who is home most of the time and is willing to administer her medications twice a day to keep her healty for remainder of her life. In return Willow is willing to provide all the love and attention and kisses you can handle! Willow adores all humans and animals. She never meets a stranger. Willow deserves to life a quality life full of love and tender care..could you be that special family for her?
Willow's medical expenses have risen as UYR has worked to have her diagnosed and treated. Please find it in your heart to donate to Willows care.
Updated Bio 11-19-15 Willow has settled in at her foster home. Her favorite thing to do is give kisses after kisses! Willow enjoys meeting new people and gets along well with her foster fur siblings. Willow is not a fan of being crated or trapped in a small area. She likes to have run of the house.
The good news it that Willow is making progress in her potty training, but when her foster family isn't home she wears a diaper. She had her visit to the dentist this week and had 9 teeth removed! Don't be alarmed! She still has plenty of teeth left to eat her yummy food with.
Willow had spent her past life having litter after litter of puppies. She is not much for playing with toys, but is all about being with her person and snuggling. She loves sleeping with her foster mom and dad! Willow would be great in a home where someone is home most of the time. She would also do well in a home with other fur babies. Willow is just looking for love and looking to give love! Wouldn’t you want to make Willow your forever baby? Please fill out an adoption application for her.
Updated Bio 11-01-2015: Willow just landed in her new Foster home in TN. She is recovering from surgery to remove mammary tumors. The good news is that surgery was successful and we believe Willow is cured. She still needs to have a dental which will happen this week.
Willow has separation anxiety and does not like to be left alone. She will need a home where her owners are willing to be with her most of the time. She also gets anxious riding in vehicles and is not a fan of traveling. Willow is still working on house training and will need a home where they have the patience to help her continue to make progress.
Her new Foster Mom is just getting to know her so stay tuned for updates as we get to know her better.
Initial Bio 10-8-15 Willow arrived at her foster home today. She is scheduled for her first vet visit on Monday. She has several tumors that need removal. She will also need a spay, a dental, and medicine for her infected ears. Willow also needs all her vaccinations, including heartworm and fecal testing.
Willow will need about two weeks to recover and then we expect her to be ready for her forever home. She is not house trained yet but gets along with other dogs, and is just a very wonderful dog ready to be loved and cared for forever.
Please check back soon after Willow's surgery for updates on her progress. Willow's surgery, which will include the removal of several tumors, a dental, a spay, blood work, vaccinations, and an analysis of the tumors, will be costly. Please consider donating towards this sweet girl's medical care.
To date we've spent $6090.16 on TN Willow's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $2003.80 in donations.

This sweet girl is ready to start checking Adoption Applications with her Foster Mom...could it be you?
THANK YOU TO JULES' RESCUE ANGELS!
Lynne Turner, Lynne Turner
Initial Bio 04/09/16: Meet Jules, our new Texas girl. She is about 18 months old and 5lbs (with her t-shirt on). She is UTD on shots and has a clean bill of health. Jules came to us in heat so spay will have to wait a bit but once completed she will be ready to meet her forever family. As her foster mom I can tell you that that will be one lucky family! We are ready to accept applications for this little darling right away.
Jules from Texas here: I am glad to be out of that shelter. They said I was scared and couldn't be adopted but my foster mom says "no way", I am a 5 pound bundle of fun and kisses. I am a Yorkie mix but I am 100% cute and 100% sweet. I am playful but well behaved. I love to cuddle on the couch too! Foster Mom says I am housebroken as long as you take me out. I don't know how to ask yet but I do wait. I really like to be outside so a fended in yard is on my wish list but I will still need to be watched. I am good with children but will prefer a home where they are older as I am very small. If you think I might be a good fit in your home please visit our website and complete an application. I can't wait to be someone's little everything.
To date we've spent $501.77 on Jules's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $463.77 in donations.

Updated bio 4-27-16 Adorable Cody is a 1 year old, 12 lb. Yorkie pup. He is being fostered in Richmond, Virginia.
Hi, It's me, Cody here. I am having a great time at my foster home. I had my liver shunt surgery almost 6 weeks ago. Thank you to everyone who has donated and supported me to make me better! I just went to the dogtor and I have gained two pounds in the past two months. We are waiting to hear back about my liver test results so that I can be adopted. Until we hear back, I am still on antibiotics, medication, and special food.
I really like to romp around, wrestle, and play with my foster sister. I truly enjoy playing and running around with my foster sister. I am still learning to play with toys. I don’t play fetch yet, but I sure do like to run around in the yard. I don’t pull on the leash when we go for walks. My foster mom got me a handsome new nylon strap harness that doesn’t matt up my super soft fur.
Now that I have my energy back I can be mischievous. I try to get into trash cans and I broke into the treat storage once and helped myself to a snack. Some very special ladies sent me an awesome blanket that goes great when I am watching movies or Netflix with my people. I insist on following my people around the house and yard no matter what they are up to. My foster sister and I both sleep together on the dog bed or sofa overnight. This way I can get to the puppy pads in my puppy pen and crate. I did not react very well when I encountered cats while we have been out in the neighborhood and at the vet office. So I think I better not go to a house with cats. I do get along well with kids. I really want to find a forever home with another dog friend because I love to play so much.
Now my foster mommy wants to tell you just little about me.
Cody is a very sweet boy who has come a very long way. We are hoping that Cody will be ready to be adopted soon. His surgery and treatments will cost United Yorkie Rescue around $3000. If you are able to help us by donating towards Cody’s care we would be so very grateful. It is only with the help of our rescue angels that we can continue to help dogs like Cody get the care they need to continue to live a long and healthily life.
Updated Bio 3/24/2016
Cody had his Liver Shunt Surgery this week. He spent two nights in the hospital and has now been released and is now recovering in his foster home. His surgeon is very optimistic that Cody's Liver Shunt surgery was a success. For now, Cody is confined to a cone so that he will not disturb the very long incision that was necessary to perform his surgery. He must be kept calm and have very limited activity and can only go outside for potty breaks on a leash in the yard. Cody is still on several medications including Lactulose, an antibiotic, anti-seizure medications and two medications for pain. He has a follow up visit in two weeks to have his sutures removed and hopeful he will also get to leave his cone behind. While we are very hopeful, Cody still isn't out of the woods and we are still paying for the care he has already received. If you have donated to Cody's care, Thank You so very much. Please share his story with others so we can keep his story alive and hopefully others will be inspired to donate. If you have not yet donated, it would be very much appreciated. You can donate towards his care by visiting his You Caring Fundraiser page at Cody's Fund Raiser
Updated bio 3-4-6 -- Cody is an almost 1-year-old, 10 lb. Yorkie male. He is being fostered in Richmond, Virginia.
Hi, it’s me Cody here. I am having a great time at my foster home. In three more weeks I will be having my liver shunt surgery. I have a lot more energy and good days now that I am on antibiotics, medication, and special food. I am a young pup who has no idea that I should be sick. I like to romp around, wrestle, and play with my foster sister and my real fur sister Charley. I only play with toys if Charley is playing with them.
I like to run around in the yard, and I don’t pull on the leash when we go for walks. Charley Girl won’t let me keep my collar on; she undoes the buckle all the time. I have gotten used to sporting my vest, though. It’s a very stylish size small harness.
I am not potty trained. My condition means that I drink a lot of water and my special food makes my poo soft. I try to go when we go out and I usually listen when my foster mom tells me to “go potty.” I do have puppy pads to use as backup. My foster family will continue to work with me on good habits and bellybands after my life saving surgery.
Now that I have my energy back I can be mischievous. I try to get into trashcans and I broke into the treat storage once and helped myself to a snack. Can you believe how smart I am, and very cute, buy the way.
Because of my liver shunt, I tire out easily and love to snuggle when I nap. The ladies at FABB sent me an awesome blanket that goes great when I am watching movies or Netflix with my people. I insist on cuddling with a person when I am not feeling well. I get along great with my “sister” Charley and my foster sister but sometimes we roughhouse a little too much. We all sleep together on the dog bed or sofa overnight while I have access to the puppy pads in my puppy pen and crate. I do not react well when I have encountered cats while we have been out in the neighborhood and at the veterinary office. I hope to find a forever home with another dog friend and no cats.
Cody’s foster mom says that Cody is a very sweet boy who has a long road ahead of him. Cody will not be ready for adoption for some time. His surgery and treatments are estimated to cost around $3000. Our rescue group is fundraising in earnest. If you are able to help us by donating towards Cody’s care we would be so very grateful. Every little bit will help us help Cody live a long and healthy life. Without the surgery Cody will not have that option.
Initial Bio 2/16/2016 Cody came to us from an owner who could no longer afford his care because Cody has just been diagnosed with a liver shunt. This is a very serious and life-threatening condition that requires extensive treatment, most usually in the form of very expensive surgery. United Yorkie Rescue of course accepted Cody into rescue and has already begun the process of getting him the care he needs. His diagnostic evaluation is complete and he will consult with a specialist early next week. He will almost certainly be scheduled for surgery soon afterwards. For now, Cody is on medication, special prescription food and receiving lots of TLC in his foster home. He is a very sweet boy who has a long road ahead of him. Cody will not be ready for adoption for some time. If approved for surgery, the estimated cost will be around $3000. If you are able to help us by donating towards Cody’s care we would be so very grateful.
To date we've spent $2731.55 on Cody's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1650.00 in donations.

Missy WI is a lovely 13 year old, 9+ pound Yorkie girl residing in Waunakee, WI
Missy WI is looking for a very special home..might that be you?
THANK YOU TO MISSY'S RESCUE ANGELS!
Jeff Schell, Donna Leggett, Sandra Wendt
Update Bio 05/05/16: Missy had her dental and she was micro-chipped this week. We are now ready to start taking adoption applications. Missy is looking for a loving human to take care of her in her remaining years. Although Missy is an older gal with very little eyesight and no hearing, she is a delightful little companion. Although we had concerns she had a liver related issue, we have no reason to believe she is anything other than healthy. Her blood work has come back normal, she eats well. She walks off leash next to me when we take the other two Yorkies for daily walks. Missy loves her own doggie bed, thus she does not sleep with her foster Mom. Although she is 13.5 years old, Missy still demonstrates agility and responsiveness to humans. She loves to get love, she plays with her toys and she gets very excited when her favorite people come home from work or school. The biggest challenge for potential adopters is that Missy is used to going potty on training pads. We don't think she was taken out regularly by her former owner, so it is likely she was never taught to 'hold' her urges. Although Missy ALWAYS goes potty outside when we take her, and she hits the training pads 90% of the time inside, she definitely misses the pads from time to time. I suspect this has to do with her depth perception and loss of eyesight. A potential adopter could use doggie diapers on her to protect their flooring if necessary. Missy ignores the other two dogs in the house, and she is wonderful with our 16 month old grandchild. She displays no aggressive behaviors at all. This is a Senior Yorkie who can bring a TON of joy to her forever home, she is just adorable and very funny at times. Missy HATES to ride in vehicles, thus, we will not consider anyone outside of a 2 or 3 hour drive from the Madison, WI area. Please contact her Foster Mom for further information.
Initial Bio 04/11/16: Missy WI is a 13 year old, spayed Yorkie who comes to United Yorkie Rescue from her original owner. The owner has experienced some health problems and could no longer care for Missy WI. She has received a clean bill of health from the vet, and she is up to date on her vaccinations. She does have some arthritis in her back, and her liver is enlarged, but blood work shows she is in good health.
Missy WI requires a special adopter as she has lost all of her hearing, and most of her eyesight. She compensates well, spending time walking around her surroundings to learn where objects are. She quickly learned how to jump from the sidewalk to the stoop and from the stoop into the house.
Missy WI is currently on a soft diet as she refuses kibble or any hard food of any kind. She is a pro at finding the training pad in the house and doing her business on the pad. She also goes potty outside when we take her.
She has never walked on a leash and is very uncomfortable wearing a harness. We've decided not to make her wear a harness or walk with us given her age. She enjoys being in the yard, but she also enjoys sleeping!
Missy WI needs a human who is home with her. She has taken very well to the male humans in our house, ignores the other two Yorkies and loves my granddaughter, who is a toddler. Please contact foster mom with any questions you might have about this wonderful, older gal.
To date we've spent $135.37 on Missy WI's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $350.00 in donations.
For more information, contact my foster parents at: email@example.com.
