Kingston Kringle

Kingston Kringle

Kingston Kringle is a 10 year old, 7.5 pound Maltese boy being fostered in Bryant, AR.

THANK YOU TO KINGSTON KRINGLE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Trula Montgomery, Angie Cagle

Update 2/10/18

This little one is a pure snuggle monkey. When he looks at you with those big brown eyes of love and that crooked little grin, it just melts your heart and makes you smile every time. Kingston is a full blood Maltese and weighs about 7.5 pounds. His birthday is December 1, 2007, which makes him 10 years old, but someone forgot to tell him! He spins, twirls, and jumps up and down for joy. He is absolutely the perfect fit for a lap and loves to be there. One of his favorite things is to snuggle underneath a blanket with you. He would just love to spend the whole day on the couch with you and needs someone who has a lot of love and time to give him. He did not receive much attention in his former placement and spent most of his time alone with another canine companion. He would be happy with other doggie companions or just his main love. Kingston becomes attached quickly and will follow you everywhere, even sleeping on the bathroom rug while you shower.

Kingston is housebroken, and if taken out often enough does not have accidents. He gets along well with other dogs He has a wonderful appetite and really loves treats! He is so happy all the time that he just smiles and wags his whole little body. He just eats up loving and affection. He is smart and willing to learn and is just about the perfect little boy. He is crate trained, but for short times only, like movie out or shopping. He prefers someone who is around home most of the time. Kingston is a big name for a little one, but he has the personality to match it! If you have love in your heart and want a small boy to love, then Kingston is definitely your man. Kingston has been vetted, microchipped, had a recent dental, and is ready for immediate adoption.

12/14/17 Kingston and Ricky came from an elderly owner who loved them dearly and took good care of them until failing health caused them to reach out to UYR for help. These boys are OVER THE MOON CUTE! And sweet as can be! Ricky is calm and quiet by nature, and just a precious little butterball! He is a bit overweight as his former owner loved to pass him the treats but we are going to work on slimming down a bit in his foster home. Kingston is very sweet and equally adorable ball of white fluff. He is very attached to Ricky. These boys love to sleep next to each other and Kingston constantly goes and finds Ricky to check up on him and see what he is doing. Both are housetrained and well mannered. Though they have just landed in their foster home we know both pups are healthy, up to date on their care and hoping Santa Paws will bring them a forever home together for Christmas or New Years! We know these cute guys won’t last long so if you think you are their PAWFECT MATCH apply to adopt them today!


To date we've spent $681.07 on Kingston Kringle's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $170.00 in donations.

Ricky Ricardo

Ricky Ricardo

Ricky Ricardo is a 9 year old, 9.5 pound Yorkie boy who is being fostered in Bryant, AR.

THANK YOU TO RICKY RICARDO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Trula Montgomery

Update 2/10/18

Little Ricky Ricardo came to us at 12.8 pounds. He is now a slim 9.5 pounds and still losing weight. We hope he stabilizes about 9 pounds. Ricky's birthday is December 17, 2008, making him just barely 9 years old. This little man does love his food and will need controlled, scheduled meal times to maintain his healthy weight. He feels so much better, has energy, bounces when he walks, wags his tail all the time, and seeks affection. He has a cute smile with the tip of his tongue showing most of the time. He always wants to be where you are always, whether asking for scratches on the couch or laying under your feet . He is a doll and a perfect Yorkie boy. He is a very quiet Yorkie, and his foster mom has only heard him bark twice in the weeks he has been in foster care. Ricky came to us with bad skin, flakes and infection, and an ear infection. He could not even hear for the swelling in his ears. With good food and absence of grain in his diet, he has improved greatly, his skin is clear and coat is shiny, and he hears very well, but he does continue to have an ear problem. Ricky saw a Dermatologist on January 8th who took care of his ears and is beginning allergy treatment. There will be period of about a month to get his routine in order, then he will only need medication about every week to ten days. Ricky should be available for adoption in about a month, but get in line, he will be spoken for quickly. He is just too perfect!

Ricky is housebroken, and if taken out often enough does not have accidents. He gets along well with other dogs, but would also do well as an only dog He is so happy all the time that he bounces when he walks and has a very cute rear view when he does. He just eats up loving and affection. He is smart and willing to learn and is just about the perfect little boy. He is crate trained, but for short times only, like movie out or shopping. He prefers someone who is around home most of the time. Ricky has saved up a lot of lovin' for some lucky someone!

Brandy

Brandy is a beautiful 4 year old 7 pound little Yorkie girl being fostered in Southern California. Brandy needs to be weaned from some medication her owners were giving her and she will not be available for adoption that has been done.

THANK YOU TO BRANDY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Rodney and Robin Slagle

Initial Bio 2/12/18: Hello – My name is Brandy! I’m 4.5 Years Old and 7lbs of Pure Moxie! I’m a Little California Beauty Queen, and I know it!! I love cuddling in my bed, going for long mountain walks and playing with squeak toys! I just arrived on Saturday 2/10 and I’m just getting to know my Foster Family.

Cody
California
Cody CA

Meet the adorable Cody. He is ten years old and 6 lbs. of pure love and is being fostered in CA.

THANK YOU TO CODY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Initial Bio. 01/09/18, Please meet Cody. He is just the sweetest little boy ever. 6 1/2 pounds of pure sweetness. He will be 11 years old in March. Don’t let his age scare you, this little man was wonderfully cared for by his Mom who had him since he was a puppy. He has had yearly blood work and teeth cleaning. He is very healthy and probably has many years to look forward to.

His Mom had to surrender him to United Yorkie Rescue due to the extensive traveling required of her current job.

He does have a cataract in his left eye. He has had this since he was a puppy. It does not hinder him or slow him down in any way.

Cody is a quiet little guy. He is house trained and uses a doggie door. He gets along with my dogs. I think he just loves to be close to me, beside me, or in my lap. He does have to compete for my attention, since I have other doggies.

I believe Cody would do well in a quiet home with perhaps 1 or 2 other dogs. He does not bark, or whine. He just goes with the flow!

Maxwell
California
Maxwell

Maxwell is a 10 year old, 5 pound Yorkie boy residing in Canyon Country, CA.

THANK YOU TO MAXWELL'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Karry Rogers, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Brigitte Saylor, Sandra Wendt, Brigitte Saylor, Tegwyn Neilson, Sandra Wendt, Kelly Marini, Elizabeth Giannone, Denise Garrett, Jane St. John, Judy and James Hufford, Debra Roby, Linda and David Rothrock, Joan Shelly, Gail Clemons, Kristin Vole, Shanon Fair, Treena Morgan, Paul Sherman, Mahmoud Loghman-Adham, Nancy Smith, Mary Cronin, Angela Heath, Mark Reed, Christine Flaherty, Lee Filer, Pascaline Golie, Marcia Lee

Update Bio: 02/11/18. Maxwell is so cute and full of personality. He learned to trust, cuddle and overcome his anxiety. He feels safe in his foster home and loves to cuddle and give kisses. He still tries to nip strangers until he gets to know and trust them. He may never overcome this.

He loves to play with his toys. He is potty trained and uses pee pads when I am at work. He is not a barker and gets very excited when I come home from work. If you are interested in this sweet little man, just follow the link below to complete the application.

Update Bio. 11/26/17. Not much news on little Maxwell. He is still waiting for his forever home. He is a lot calmer than he used to be but still has his moments. He can drive you crazy an hour before feeding time. He loves to lay in your lap and play with his toys. He does, at times, have problems getting up the doggie stairs to the couch but he will usually figure it out. It is so funny because sometimes he just turns around and walks up backwards. Wish I could capture that on video.

He is growing a beautiful full coat.

Update Bio. 07/24/17. Maxwell has been in his foster home for over a year now, and it is getting difficult to do the monthly updates. He had his annual senior screen a few weeks ago and did excellent. He is a very healthy little boy. He needs his daily physical exercises and walks uphill to keep the muscles in his hind legs strong.

He is a happy, little guy who enjoys life and he loves, loves, loves toys. Squeaking toys and toys with voice boxes are his favorite one. His favorite game is tug of war.

He needs a patient person and a quiet home with very little people traffic and no children under the age of 12.Maxwell would be an excellent companion. To complete an application for adoption, just follow the link below.

Update Bio. 06/22/17. I can't believe that Maxwell has not found his forever home, yet. He has been in his foster home for an entire year, his pelvic fractures healed a long time ago, and he just had his annual senior screen. He is a perfectly healthy 10 and 1/2 year old Yorkie boy with puppy energy who loves to play tug of war, go for walks, and loves squeaker toys. Yes, he has problems with anxiety and we are trying the 3rd medication which doesn't seem to work just as the others we tried before. He would do best in a quiet home with very little people traffic, no other dogs, and a daily routine with minimal changes.

He should be walked uphill daily for 5 minutes and his exercises need to be done daily. They are very simple to do and it takes only 5 minutes twice a day.

I am sure the right person for Maxwell is out there and it is just a matter of time for this special person to find him.

Update Bio. 05/13/17. Maxwell has been at his foster home for an entire year, now. It is time for him to find his forever home. Max was evaluated by my trainer, who is an animal behaviorist and she said that he is overly attached to his foster Mom. Most likely due to the care he was getting when he came to her being severely injured. This is most likely the reason for him trying to nip strangers. He is totally fine going on walks with my trainer by herself with me hiding behind a building. A retired person/couple or someone who works from home would be ideal for Maxwell. He loves to go on walks and play tug of war with his toys and boy does he love toys.

Update Bio. 04/04/17. Maxwell is doing really well these day. The physical therapy is working, and he is becoming a little miracle baby. He walked up a staircase of many stairs for the very first time a couple of days ago. I didn't think he would ever be able to do more than a couple of stairs. An adopter has to be 100% committed to continue these very simple exercises daily. It makes such a difference in his quality of life.

Yes, he continues to nip strangers coming to the home but can be easily handled. He never tried to seriously bite someone. He actually tries to pinch them. Grabbing him and putting him into a submissive position and staring him into the eye until he looks away usually shows him who is in charge. He is an absolutely adorable little guy who loves to go on walks. His daily walks should include a five minute walk uphill.

Update Bio. 03/04/17. Sweet little Maxwell started Physical Therapy last weekend. He went to see a specialist, and she put together a set of exercises we can do at home. We alternate days with walking uphill and walking through water in the bathtub. In addition to that, we have exercises for his front and hind legs to strengthen and loosen up those muscles. He has developed a way of walking without using either one of his hind legs much and has muscle loss on both hind legs. We are already seeing a huge improvement by the end of the first week. If you are interested in adopting Maxwell you have to be aware how important it is for him to continue his exercises possibly for the rest of his life.

He is still worried about strangers and tries to nip, but adjusts quickly and stops once he realizes he is safe. He gets very attached to his human and becomes very protective. I usually take him into the vet's office on a leash so they can take him to the back. He is the sweetest little guy and allows any handling when the person he is fixated on is not around.

In addition to be willing to do his exercises with him diligently, his adopter needs to be experienced in handling these little ones. He does not bite but tries to pinch people he doesn't know. He would be ideal as an only dog or with one playmate his size. This guy is turning into a real cuddle bug with all the love he is getting at his foster home. If you are interested in adopting Maxwell, just complete the application by following the link below.

Update Bio. 02/04/17. Poor little Maxwell. The rain and cold weather really did a number on him. Out of the blue, he started limping, not putting any weight on his left leg. This is the leg he had the FHO done on, and it is a little shorter due to this procedure. We went to see Dr. Vanessa, snd she took an Xray to make sure nothing bad happened. His Xray looked normal for him after the injuries he endured. She consulted his surgeon and a radiologist for a second opinion and they agreed.

Foster Mom is currently looking for a Physical Therapy place that also does water therapy to evaluate him and come up with a treatment plan she can follow at home. She is an RN and wants to learn the exercises he needs to do to help strengthen his left leg.

In the meantime he goes for short walks and is currently walking what is normal for him, again. He is such a little trooper. If this lovely little man sounds like the furbaby for you, simply follow the link below to complete an application for adoption.

Update Bio. 01/04/17. Happy New Year from Maxwell! Maxwell has not been eating well these last few days. We will lower his daily dose of Prozac since this is most likely the reason for his loss of appetite. He loves to hang out with the other Yorkies on my lap when I sit down and loves to cuddle. He loves to sleep at night with his snuggle pup and listen to its heart beat. He got it for his 10th birthday. It seems to calm him when he hugs it at night.

Max is still worried about strangers approaching him and tries to nip until he gets to know and trust you. He is a very fragile, little guy due to his previous injuries and needs an adult only home. He is the perfect little man, so if you are interested in adopting him, please follow the link below to complete an application.

Update Bio. 12/01/16. Maxwell is a 10 year old, 5 pound Yorkie boy residing in Canyon Country, CA.

Little man just had his birthday and, although he had a great party, he was just a little sad that he didn't get his birthday wish for a forever home. For the life of us, we can not even imagine why this little guy is not in his new home yet. Well now Christmas is coming, and his only request is to be with his forever family. Who will be lucky enough to have him as their own? Email foster mom with any questions at RN4surgery@yahoo.com or follow the link below to compete an application for adoption. I hope you are the lucky one.

Update bio. 10/31/16. Little Maxwell is still waiting for his forever home. His 10th birthday is coming up on November 8, and he is hoping for a home of his own for his birthday. The perfect home for Maxwell would be a home with a playmate his size or as an only dog. He loves to play with squeaky toys, his friend Roxy, and go on walks. He will run down the stairs but has problems getting back up due to his previous injuries. He only weighs 5.4 pounds. Due to his small size please no children under the age of 12. If Maxwell sounds like the fellow for you, follow the link below to complete an application for adoption.

Update Bio. 09/25/11. Maxwell has a birthday coming up on 11/08, and his only wish is to find a home of his own where he will be spoiled for the rest of his life. Maxi's fractures healed and he is a very energetic young man. He loves to play with his foster siblings, especially with the puppy. He adores her, and she loves him. He is able to walk down the stairs without any problems but needs help getting back up. He can do two or three stairs but will look for help after that. He loves two go on walks, and we go for two miles at a time without any problems. I think we are ready to add one more mile since he does so well. He loves to lay next to his human on the couch and loves belly rubs. Max is up to date on vaccinations, neutered, and microchipped. He needs a quiet home with little to no people traffic, and due to his small size (5 and 1/2 pounds), no children under the age of 12 years old.

Update Bio. 09/24/26. Maxwell's fractures are healing nicely, and he is no longer on crate rest. He has gained a little weight and most importantly, muscle mass. He loves toys and will play with them all day. He is now looking for his forever home. Maxwell needs a quiet home with little to no people traffic since he gets very nervous around people he doesn't know. Someone who is retired or works out of the home would be a perfect match for Maxwell. His previous owner said that he needs to be the only pet in the house. My trainer and I think that he would be okay with another dog his size and age. He does show some alpha behavior towards the puppy in my house.

Maxwell needs to go to an adult only home due to his small size (5 and 1/2 pounds)and previous injuries.

Please fill out an application at uyr.us if you are interested in adopting Maxwell. He is listed under California.

Update Bio:08/24/16. I am so proud of this little guy. He is doing amazingly well, and we are adding a little more distance to his walk every day. He enjoys his walks side by side with Jar-Jar Binks. I usually carry him up the stairs after his walk since I can tell he does not really have the strength after the walk, but he can do it. Dr. Vanessa said that he really does not have any restrictions, but he should not jump up onto or off furniture.

Maxwell feels more and more at home and is turning into a little snuggle buddy. He loves to lay on the couch next to me. He was introduced to watermelon, banana, home cooked chicken with sweet potatoes, carrots, and green beens. He loves it all! He would not touch any fruits when I first got him and would move the watermelon onto his bed and leave it there. Now, he loves it and can't get enough.

He spins around in small circles when he gets exited and is such a joy to have around. His previous owner said that he had to be the only pet in the house, but he proved him wrong. He plays for hours with Roxy, who is 7 months old. She will grab a toy and run around the table with Maxi following close behind. We are having so much fun watching them play. Max and my 7 year old male pretty much ignore each other, while Max and my 7 year old female occasionally get into little arguments, which are easily supervised.

Update Bio: 07/21/16 Maxwell's fractures are healing nicely and he is no longer on crate rest. He has gained a little weight and most importantly muscle mass. He loves toys and will play with them all day. He is now looking for his forever home. Maxwell needs a quiet home with not much people traffic since he gets very nervous around people he doesn't know. A person who is retired or works out of the home would be a perfect match for Maxwell. His previous owner said that he needs to be the only pet in the house.

Maxwell needs to go to an adult only home due to his small size (5 and 1/2 pounds)and previous injuries.

Please fill out an application at uyr.us if you are interested in adopting Maxwell. He is listed under California.

Update 06/27/16: Maxwell is a 5 pound Yorkie being fostered in California. He was surrendered to Lancaster Shelter by his owner after he got hurt. Max is currently recovering from his surgery. He had a FHO on the right and got his staples out last Friday. He will have to go back for X-rays to see how the healing process is coming along in 2 weeks.

Other than wanting to get out of the crate to play with the other dogs, he is a happy little guy and will be ready for his forever home once he is healed.

Update 6/11/16: Great news on Maxi. All he needed done was a Femoral Head Osteotomy on the right hind leg. The surgeon did not want to touch the pelvic fractures since they are healing nicely on their own. There is a small chance he will need the same procedure on the other side in the future due to protecting the healing side when he walks. He is on crate rest and foster mom will try anything to prevent this. He was a very hungry little boy this morning and ate well. His prayer blanket arrived in the mail yesterday and is comforting him. Once he is all healed he will be ready for adoption. So if you are interested in adopting Maxwell I will start looking at applications.

Update 6/10/16: Maxwell needs your prayers today. He is undergoing his bi-lateral pelvic fracture repair which is an extensive surgery. Little Maxwell is a tiny boy so we hope all goes well for him during and after his procedure.

Update Bio 06/02/16: Maxwell is a 10 year old happy little boy who has had a rough life so far. He came to us with bilateral pelvic fractures and he will need extensive surgery to repair them. This surgery can only be done by an orthopedic specialist and the estimate for this complicated procedure is $4500.00. We are undertaking this expense because UYR’s mission is to make sure Maxwell is given the chance to have a full, mobile and pain free life. His surgery is scheduled for June 10 and we desperately need donations to help pay for this procedure.

Your donation is tax deductible and Maxi, his Foster Mom and all UYR thank you.

Initial Bio 05/26/16: Hi everyone. My name is Maxwell. I was an owner surrender at Lancaster Shelter after I got hurt. I am an approximately 10 year old Yorkshire terrier. I was limping with one of my hind legs and didn't want to put any weight on it, so they took some X-rays and it turns out I have a pelvic fracture. Foster Mom will take me to the Dogtor tomorrow. We already know that I will need surgery, so I will not be available for adoption for a while. I am also very skinny and hopefully with some good nutrition and extra feedings I will put on some weight. My surgery will be very expensive so please consider making a donation to help me get well again.

I am a very active and sweet little boy.

We will give updates as soon as Foster Mom gets to know me better.


To date we've spent $3271.31 on Maxwell's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $3099.70 in donations.

I love the outdoors!

I love toys, too. Can you tell?
Florida
Baloo

Baloo is an adorable 11 year old, 13 pound yorkie boy. Baloo wants to be your one and only animal. He is being fostered in Clearwater, FL.

THANK YOU TO BALOO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Tatiana Ceballos

UPDATED BIO 01/28/2018: Hello Everyone - I am Baloo! I am a mature Yorkie gentleman. I love the outdoors and especially love being with my humans. If you are a drama-free person, then I am your drama-free dog. I require very little – here’s the very few things I need in a forever home:

- a fenced backyard for me to run free. Oh, and to meditate – yup, I love to meditate in the outdoors. Don’t you? I need a home, no apartment or condo dwellers, please.

- a forever home free of other animals. I want to be your one and only so that I can give you lots (and I do mean lots!) of attention and love.

- no young children under 14 years old. Since I’m mature, I prefer my humans to be mature, too.

- A home with someone who just wants a loyal companion. That’s me! And that’s what I want in my human.

- Because I tend to be a strong-willed character of sorts, it would be best for me to go into a home with doggie experience, and especially experience with the Yorkshire Terrier breed.

- Toys. Lots of them. I love to play with my toys while I sit by my owner(s).

Once you adopt me, I will adopt you as my human(s) and will be forever faithful and loyal to you. I have lots of love to give to my special persons. Will you be that perfect owner for me? I have been obedience-trained and can sit on command, and I give high 5's, too. Pretty cool, huh? And …..after you learn my language, I can even talk! To know me is to absolutely love me. And you will. I promise.

UPDATED BIO 12/11/2017: Avoid the Christmas rush and get yourself the best gift ever. I am Baloo - a very sweet and adorable 11 year old yorkie. PLEASE NOTE!!!! I NEED AN ENCLOSED BACKYARD AND I ALSO NEED TO BE THE ONLY DOG IN THE HOME. I also do not do well with children or cats.

Like a lot of humans, I have lived a difficult life and because of my age, and as a result of my past life’s difficulties, I prefer to live a quiet mellow life now. I love to be petted and have my tummy rubbed and head scratched. I do enjoy sleeping in the bed and ….. BONUS! - I am also house-trained. My advanced training means I will heel, sit, and sometimes stay. I love to give high fives for treats.

I would consider myself a low-maintenance kind of fellow; however, it does take me a little time to get acclimated to my new surroundings. My ideal forever home would be with an older retired person or couple where I will be the center of attention – and the center of their world. Yup, I’d really like that. I prefer to spend most of my time outdoors in my own private dog park that you humans would call an ENCLOSED BACK YARD. Please - no apartment or condo dwellers. 

Because I am a strong-willed character of sorts, it would be best for me to go into a home with someone with doggie experience, and especially experience with the Yorkshire Terrier breed. Come on folks! Spoil yourself a little bit and adopt the gift that keeps on giving – ME! We can chill and relax together and watch the world go by – that’s a perfect day for me. Oh, and remember those belly rubs and head scratches.

Updated bio 8-29-17 Hello, my name is Baloo. I am 11 years old and weigh a lucky 13 pounds. Right now I am living in Clearwater, FL in my foster home. Here's what you should know about me. I generally like to keep to myself and mind my own business. I do enjoy time with my owner, but other than that I am content with my toys. I am in very good health. I have been through advanced obedience training. I have no dental issues which is rare for my age, but I have been very well taken care-of in my previous home. And guess what? I am house-trained and a really good eater too.

My perfect home would be a home with ABSOLUTELY no other pets or children. I like to have all the attention and love. I like a quiet environment and am looking for a stay-at-home person who likes the same. I do have a strong character, so I need an owner who is familiar with dogs like me, especially one with a snarky attitude that a Yorkie can sometimes have; I will take over the house if you let me, so I kinda need owners with a strong character, too, lol! My owners may have to rein me in a little and show me my boundaries from time-to-time - maybe. I really need a fenced/enclosed backyard to play in. I am not a dog park or neighborhood kind of dog. Please don't be scared. I am friendly, loving, loyal and obedient, and really pretty much maintenance-free except for the required belly rub now and then. I look forward to meeting my new parent or parents. I will give you lots of kisses and love. Don't pass me by if you think you would like a special dog like me.

UPDATED BIO 07/07/2017: Here's a note from Baloo:

Hello future Parents

Please allow me to introduce myself. I am Baloo and I am a mature gentleman at 11 years old. Because I have been taken such good care of at my most recent vet visit, I was found to be in excellent health and cleared to go to my forever home.

My ideal home would be a home much like myself - older and retired. Why? Because we can sit around and watch the world go by. I'm not a fan of a lot of excitement and I don't bark much. I really just love to walk around the back yard (preferably fenced). I love toys. I am almost like a puppy in that regard and I bring them to bed with me.

So now you know about me, and that I'm a laid-back gentleman. Oh! Now this is impressive. I have been to Obedience School and I can do a few tricks. Pretty cool, huh? There's something else you need to know. I want to be your one and only animal. That way, you can devote all of your attention to me - that's the way I like it!

Please ask my Foster Parents any questions if you are interested in adopting and loving me.

INITIAL 06-25-17: Baloo just arrived at this foster home today. He was so glad to be there. It seems there was this young dog in his former home that was not being very nice to Baloo. He wanted Baloo to play with him all the time and although Baloo is a young 11 year old fellow, he no longer has the energy of a puppy and he was just so unhappy. Baloo's mom knew Baloo needed a quiet, calm home where he would be the only dog.

Baloo did great in the long car ride to his foster home. He is house-trained, walks nicely on a leash, and is a good eater. Baloo is a healthy dog and has many wonderful years left. He needs a home with no other dogs and no kids. He would love a stay-at-home mom and/or dad if that is possible.

Baloo is settling into his foster home and already his foster mom and dad said he is one great dog and is loving the attention he is getting from them. Much more to come on this cutie as his foster parents get to know him.


To date we've spent $199.51 on Baloo's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $218.80 in donations.
Please donate!

Bernie - post-surgery.

Bernie - feeling so much better now.
Florida
Bernie

Sweet Bernie is a 9 year old, 11.4 pound Yorkie boy who came into UYR desperately needing surgery. He is being fostered in Ft. Myers, FL.

THANK YOU TO BERNIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Nancy Farley, Jane St. John, Karry Rogers, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Irene and Peter Havas, Sandra Wendt, Dianne Schultz, Maryanne Ware, Gail Sherman, Marie Walz, Nestor Sanchez, Brandi Duncan, Wendy Fuhrmaneck

UPDATED BIO 01/25/2018: Bernie has had his B-I-G hernia surgery and is feeling so much better and is looking great. He has become part of the resident doggie gang and blends in nicely with others. Bonus! Bernie is house-trained – yahoo! This little fella is more on the quiet and calm side, and totally enjoys being with his person and enjoying the immense pleasure of feeling so much better – and of course, being loved.

Bernie will have his follow-up visit with his surgeon soon and will also get a much-needed dental - then he will be ready to go to his forever home. He would do well as an only dog so that he could receive all the attention of his owner(s), or having another fur-friend would be great as well. Foster Mom calls this sweet boy a “good all-around camper" and shares that he has been such a pleasure to foster.

Please note: Bernie’s hernia surgery cost was $2,000 and UYR appreciates all the generous donations from our readers. However, we are not quite half-way in receiving donations to cover the high costs of his vetting expenses – and he still badly needs a dental for his too-long-neglected mouth. Please consider a donation so that Bernie can continue to feel better and can continue to put all the sadness and neglect he has endured in his short life in the past.

UPDATED BIO 01/11/2018: Bernie came to us from a high-kill shelter in Miami. He is cute as can be and had just been groomed prior to being taken to the shelter. This little man looked to be the perfect little boy. Why-Oh-why would anyone surrender this little angel? Then it was determined that Bernie had a very large perineal hernia. A perineal hernia is a condition that occurs in both dogs and cats in which there is an abnormal displacement of pelvic and/or abdominal organs (small intestine, rectum, prostate, bladder, or fat) into the region around the anus called the perineum. Bernie’s previous owners apparently thought it was very urgent that he have a nice haircut, but somehow failed to notice the hernia that was the size of a baseball on poor Bernie’s bottom. This poor little fella had to contort himself like a pretzel to have a bowel movement.

United Yorkie Rescue could not allow this little boy to stay in the shelter one day longer and made arrangements to pull him. Under normal circumstances, we ask for financial assistance with larger vetting expenses prior to any surgeries; however, we could not let this precious boy continue to be in misery in this condition. Bernie had had his much-needed surgery and is recuperating nicely. The surgery was very delicate and had to be done by a veterinarian surgeon. Sadly, Bernie’s mouth is in terrible condition, and this will need to be taken care of once he has recuperated from his big surgery.

UYR is asking our wonderful donors to please stand behind Bernie and support his recovery. We certainly want to do all we can to get him to his "Happy Tails" moment. He's on his way, but not there yet. Please help us help Bernie get healthier and out of pain so that he can put all the sadness and neglect he has endured in his short life in the past. Thank you to everyone who is willing to help UYR with Bernie’s high medical expenses, which currently total almost $2000 and will increase with his next procedure, a much needed dental. Without support, we cannot continue to help pups like Bernie. Just click on the Donation Button below or go to https://www.youcaring.com/bernieinflorida-1067741. UYR & Bernie thanks you for your support!

Initial bio 1/6/18 This little guy is Bernie. His owners surrendered him to the shelter because they were no longer able to care for him. Bernie sat in the shelter for several days waiting for someone to adopt him or come to his rescue. At last United Yorkie Rescue did, and Bernie is now safe and will be cared for. Bernie needs to see the vet as soon as possible. He has a perineal hernia which is affecting his ability to have a bowel movement. He also needs his mouth and teeth cared for as well as a neuter. It is hoped that all this can be done on Monday so Bernie can start to feel better.

Bernie will not be ready for adoption until after his surgery is healed. There is not much else that is known about Bernie, except that he needs someone to love and care for him. That is exactly what he is getting in his foster home. As we get to know Bernie better and after his vet visit, more will be coming on this sweet boy.

Bernie's surgery will be costly. Please consider making a donation to him. He needs to know people still love and care about him in spite of being put in a shelter to await his fate, good or bad.


To date we've spent $1990.46 on Bernie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $860.00 in donations.
Please donate!

I just want someone to cuddle with me
Florida
Boda

Meet tiny Boda. This Yorkie boy is only 5 pounds. He is a wonderful 11 years young. Boda is being fostered in The Villages, FL.

THANK YOU TO BODA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Amy Miller

Initial Bio 2-15-18 Boda is an adorable little guy. He may be 11 years old, but he is a spunky and happy fellow. Boda just arrived at his foster home today, but he has made himself right at home. His foster mom said he loves to be held and cuddled and would make anyone a very special little love bug.

Boda belonged to someone for many years. One day this guy brought Boda and his brother Chewy to another home while he went away for a little while. One day their new mommy got a phone call. Seems this man didn't want Boda or his brother anymore and was not coming to get them. He didn't care what happened to them. This very nice lady knew she had to keep them and so Boda and Chewy found themselves in a new home with a new family. After 2 years their new mommy found out she had to move across the country and didn't know how she could take both boys with her. She didn't even have a place for her to live. That was when she turned to United Yorkie Rescue for help, and that is how Boda became a United Yorkie Rescue pup. Boda is looking for one last home in which to spend the years he has left. Boda may be 11 but he does have years of life and living left. Boda is looking for that every special someone who knows that a senior dog is just the one for them.

Boda needs all his vaccinations, a dental which may leave him with not many teeth left, and a thorough well doggie check, which will include blood work. After his vet visit his foster mom will know exactly the right forever home for Boda. Come back soon and check for that update. Because of Boda's very small size he can go to an adults only home.


To date we've spent $0 on Boda's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $25.00 in donations.
Please donate!

Chewy

This is Chewy. He is an 8 year old 7 pound little Yorkie guy. Sweet Chewy is being fostered in Zyphyrhills, FL.

THANK YOU TO CHEWY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Amy Miller

Initial Bio 2-15-18 Chewy arrived at his foster home today and he is already making himself at home. He found a great place to rest, he had great food to eat, and is getting a lot of love and cuddles. The one thing not to his liking at all, is that he now has to walk on a leash to go outside to do his business. Chewy never had to be leashed walked before and he is not enjoying this new experience at all. Other than that, life is looking pretty good in his foster home.

Chewy belonged to someone for several years. One day this guy brought Chewy and his brother Boda to another home while he went away for a little while. One day their new mommy got a phone call. Seems this man didn't want Chewy or his brother anymore and was not coming to get them. He didn't care what happened to them. This very nice lady knew she had to keep them and so Chewy and Boda found themselves in a new home with a new family. After 2 years their new mommy found out she had to move across the country and didn't know how she could take both boys with her. She didn't even have a place for her to live. That was when she turned to United Yorkie Rescue for help, and that is how Chewy became a United Yorkie Rescue pup.

Chewy will be seeing the vet soon. He will need all his vaccinations, a heartworm test, and a well doggie check. There is much more to know about Chewy and the kind of home he will need to be his last and final forever home. More coming on Chewy very soon.


To date we've spent $0 on Chewy's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $25.00 in donations.

Coco - after Liver Shunt surgery

Coco - prior to surgery
Florida
Coco

Sweet puppy Coco is now 6 months old and weighs a much healthier 5.2 pounds. She is being fostered in Tampa, FL.

THANK YOU TO COCO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Maryanne Ware, Nestor Sanchez, Sandra Wendt, Ilene Rand, Dianne Schultz, Jennifer Beck, Anita Jane Hosteny, Shannon Ford-Jefferson

UPDATED BIO 02/10/2018: Coco came into UYR because she was suspected to have a Liver Shunt and her original family was unable to afford the life-saving surgery she needed. Coco had her Liver Shunt surgery on 02/05 and is recuperating nicely in her foster home. Her appetite continues to be hearty and it is expected that she may gain 1-2 more pounds before she reaches her potential adult weight. She will have her sutures removed on 02/16 and will also have her bile acid levels re-tested at that time to determine if they have gone down after her B-I-G surgery. The Bile Acid test will need to be repeated again 8 weeks post-surgery.

Coco continues to be very puppy-like and even more so now that she is feeling much better. Her foster parents said that it is challenging to keep her activity restricted which needs to be done post-surgery. She is a little firecracker who feels better each day.

PLEASE NOTE: Coco’s surgery and post-surgery visits are very expensive. United Yorkie Rescue is asking our generous donors to please consider donating towards Coco’s medical expenses of $2,000+. UYR could not pass on bringing Coco into UYR even though we knew the potential costs of her surgery. She deserved to live a long, healthy and full life and we promised her that when she came into our group. Every dollar helps us to reach our goal. Without the amazing donations from our readers and friends, UYR would not be able to help precious little dogs like Coco – sometimes, we are their last hope.

Updated bio 01-31-2018: Coco is the perfect puppy – at least according to her foster mom! Coco came into UYR because she was diagnosed with a liver abnormality and her original family was unable to afford a potentially very expensive surgery. Coco had her initial consultation with the surgeon last week and he determined that Coco is a healthy puppy, with the exception of her abnormal liver values which initially indicate that Coco has a Liver Shunt. Her Liver Shunt surgery is scheduled for Monday, February 5th. Hopefully, Coco’s liver will be fixed and she will go on to live the long, happy life that she so deserves!

Foster mom has determined that Coco has two speeds - “on” and “off”. When she is awake, she is “on” and when she’s sleeping, she is “off”. Like all puppies, Coco has TONS of energy and loves to play with her toys and run around the house. Coco also enjoys playing with her foster sister and would love for her new home to have another small dog for her to play with.

Coco loves riding in the car and going out and about with her foster family. She also loves to snuggle in your lap or on your chest when she is napping. Coco is a good little girl and sleeps quietly in her kennel all night long. She is 90% pee-pee pad trained. Her foster parents are working on teaching her to do her business outside, but right now Coco has no interest in doing so since her previous family pee-pee pad trained her and that is what this independent little princess prefers.

PLEASE NOTE: Coco will not be available for adoption for several months while she recuperates from her Liver Shunt surgery. There will be no adoption applications considered until after the surgery and the follow-up appointment 4 weeks later. We will need to know what the surgeon has to say after the surgery and the follow up appointment. Any applications submitted for Coco will be held in a file until sometime in March. IMPORTANT! Due to Coco's tiny size and age, she cannot go to a home with children under the age of 14.

****** Coco’s Liver Shunt surgery will be very expensive. UYR has recently taken in several other yorkies who needed LS surgery, and we are once again asking our amazing and generous donors to consider helping us help Coco and other doggies like her that come into rescue with serious medical conditions. Without our incredible donors and their never-ceasing support, UYR would be unable to help out these very deserving little doggies. UYR thanks you and so does Coco and the many other foster dogs that have been helped because of your continued contributions. ******

Initial bio 1-11-18 Initial bio 1-11-18 Sweet little Coco is a tiny puppy who is in desperate need of surgery. Little Coco has been diagnosed with a liver shunt. She will need that expensive surgery to fix this as soon as possible. One day Coco was a healthy, happy puppy and the next day she was lethargic and so sick she couldn't even lift her little head up from her puppy bed. Coco will be seeing the surgeon soon and get scheduled for her surgery. Coco is now on her special prescription diet which will help stabilize her until she gets her surgery.

Coco is a smart little girl. She knows how to play fetch and has learned some little commands such as sit and stay.

Coco's foster mom said Coco is the sweetest little puppy. She is full of love and fun and of course puppy antics. Please help us give Coco a long, healthy future. The only way we can do that is by giving her that expensive liver shunt surgery. So once again we are asking you to open your hearts and open your wallets and please donate to Coco and help her get her much needed surgery.

PLEASE NOTE: Coco will not be available for adoption until at least sometime in April. There will be no adoption applications considered until after the surgery in February and the follow-up appointment 4 weeks after the surgery. We will need to know what the surgeon has to say after the surgery and the follow up appointment. Any applications submitted will be held in a file until sometime in March. Due to Coco's tiny size and age, she cannot go to a home with children under the age of 14.


To date we've spent $2197.86 on Coco's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1432.35 in donations.

Coco Puff

Coco Puff is an adorable 9-10 year old 9.5 lb YorkiePoo. Coco Puff came into rescue with Peanut (see below). He is being fostered in Ocala, FL.

THANK YOU TO COCO PUFF'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Kyle Bressant

UPDATED BIO 01/15/2018: Coco Puff has settled in nicely in his foster home and Foster Mom says he is an angel. Not only is he adorable, but he is also a loving and obedient little boy. Coco Puff comes when he is called, loves to play outside and loves to be held by his human. He also loves to snuggle right next to her under the covers in bed. Coco Puff is almost house trained, a big plus!

Coco Puff is getting used to walking on a leash. He is having his teeth cleaned in a few days and will be ready for adoption soon. Coco Puff may be 10 years old but he acts like he is much younger. Coco Puff is looking forward to his forever home so he can fill their days with happiness, love and lots of doggie kisses.

INITIAL BIO 01/13/2018: Meet Coco Puff who just came into rescue today. Coco Puff’s elderly owner had to go into assisted living and was unable to take Coco Puff or his friend Peanut with her. Unfortunately, the owner’s son-in-law already had four dogs living at his home and could not keep Coco Puff and Peanut, so he surrendered both dogs to United Yorkie Rescue.

Coco Puff and Peanut just arrived at their foster home so it is has not yet been determined if they are bonded and need to stay together, or can be adopted separately. Coco Puff and Peanut rode nicely in the hour car ride home. They have already greeted their fur-brothers and all are getting along nicely. Welcome to your foster home, Coco Puff and Peanut.

I've Been Adopted!

To date we've spent $0 on Coco Puff's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $10.00 in donations.

I am so cute.

I like to hunt & chase lizards
Florida
Dexter

Say hello to adorable Dexter. He is a 6 year old, 6 pound sweet Yorkie boy. Dexter is being fostered in Lakeland, FL.

THANK YOU TO DEXTER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Judith Moroff, Gayla Kilbride

UPDATED BIO 02/01/2018: Hi, Dexter here. I’ve been in my foster home for a very short time, but I’ve been on a great adventure since being here. In the past few days, I have been neutered and received my updated vaccinations. Oh, I also had a dental and lost a few teeth, too, but that’s no biggie. Boy-o-Boy, I’ve been busy.

I am really liking my new toys and my new foster family. I don't understand the kitty cats, but I think I like the ones that don't hiss at me. If they do hiss, I like to go in my crate (door open please) since it’s my safe place. It’s also really, really big since it’s my big Mastiff brother’s crate.

I think at some point in my life someone taught me good puppy manners. Regardless, I follow my new foster siblings when my foster mama says "time to go out". Hey, I’m a smart boy - after the first day I found my favorite tree in the big fenced yard. I’m not used to being out in a big yard and kinda get scared, but really enjoy sunning with my fur-sister in the courtyard.

I am not much of a barker, but I don't like to be left alone for too long and will bark if I think I'm all alone. I am awfully glad when someone comes right away to keep me company and I don’t care whether they are furry or human. As soon as I'm feeling a bit better, my foster dad says we are going to try something called "walking on a leash” and see how it goes. It sounds like a lot of fun! Please watch for updates as I learn new things. Right now I'm resting and need a little time after my neuter surgery, but my foster parents told me I am going to get something called a "forever home". Now, that sounds like a lot of fun, too.

UPDATED BIO 01/30/2018: Dexter has been in his foster home for only a couple of days and he is doing just great. Foster mom said that he is well-trained on so many levels. Because he needs to be slowly acclimated to the rest of the resident geriatric doggie pack and kitty cats, he has been staying in a puppy playpen with his crate in it for naps. When foster mom says “crate”, he goes right in with the door open. Smart, huh?

Dexter enjoyed playing hide-and-seek with one of the many lizards outside, but if you say "drop it" - he does. Wow. He doesn’t appear to be a barker or a chaser, and even though the kitty cats in the home are larger than him, he is curious and just follows them around the house. When at the vet’s office for his updated vaccinations, he was very good-natured and seemed to enjoy all the attention.

Because of his small size, Dexter cannot go to a home with children under the age of 13.

Stay tuned for more information on this very sweet and adorable little boy.

Initial bio 1/28/18: This absolutely adorable little guy is Dexter. He arrived at his foster home today and he is just as sweet as can be. Dexter is now in his 3rd home in his short life. Since he was moved and left alone so often he was never taught proper puppy manners. He needs time to work with his foster mom and dad and learn those skills. He will learn to bark at appropriate time, to not chew things that he shouldn't, and to do all his business outside.

Dexter will need to see the vet as soon as he can. He needs all his vaccinations and his neuter. He may also need a dental. This fellow will have to be in his foster home a little while, as his foster parents teach him good doggie manners.

Because of his small size Dexter cannot go to a home with children under the age of 13.

Please come back soon and follow Dexter's progress as he learns his skills.

I've Been Adopted!

To date we've spent $519.15 on Dexter's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $136.00 in donations.

Florida
Haley

Meet sweet Haley. She is 8.7 years old, and a too chubby 13 pounds. This adorable Yorkie girl is being fostered in St Augustine, FL.

Initial bio 2-14-18 Haley lost her first mommy when she passed on a year ago. And now her first daddy is also very sick and no longer able to care for Haley. He had her since she was a puppy, but now he knows his time is short and he knew he could no longer care for Haley. With much sadness and a very heavy heart Haley was surrendered to United Yorkie Rescue. Haley's daddy knew the angels of United Yorkie Rescue would care for her and find her a wonderful forever home.

Haley will need to see a vet soon and get a few more vaccinations. She may need a dental and will get an overall well doggie check. Haley seems to be in good health, but much more will be know after her vet visit.

Haley is working on settling into her foster home. She seems to like hanging out with her foster fur brothers and sisters. She is already making herself quite at home. Stay turned for more on sweet Haley.


To date we've spent $0 on Haley's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Jasper Doolittle

Sweet Jasper Doolittle is a 3-1/2 year old, 15 pound Maltese/Miniature Schnauzer mix! He is being fostered in Odessa, FL.

THANK YOU TO JASPER DOOLITTLE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Kay Routh

INITIAL BIO 02/09/2018: Jasper Doolittle just came into rescue today. He was surrendered by his owner who was no longer able to care for him. Jasper is a “rare” Maltese/Miniature Schnauzer Mix, referred to as a Malzer. Like the Yorkshire Terrier, the Malzer is known for their cute looks and funny disposition. They are docile, playful and loving. Jasper is a very sweet, adorable and happy boy who will make a lovely family dog for the right family. He rode well in the car while riding to his new foster home. By the way, his foster parents fell in love with him immediately.

Jasper's surrendering owner said that he is totally house-trained - what a smart boy! He will be seen by the vet soon to have his vaccinations updated and will then be scheduled for a neuter and potentially a dental. After that, he will be ready to go to his forever home. Please check back soon for updates on this handsome boy.

Lola after her cataract surgery

Lola is a sweet baby - prior to her surgery
Florida
Lola

Sweet Lola is a little Maltese mix. Lola is 9 years old and weighs 13 pounds. She is being fostered in St Augustine, FL.

THANK YOU TO LOLA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sharon Traficante, Stephanie Frey, Aileen De LaRosa, Karry Rogers, Janet Davidson, Christine Gaastra, Leslie Corbell, Georgia Roode, Ilene Rand, Merrie Neely, Teresa Beament, Nancy Farley, Jan Freeman, Anita Acchione, Julie Clark, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Sandra Wendt, Cindy Milanovich, Dianne Schultz, Lisa Ellison, Katherine Kelshaw, Debbie Driscoll, Kathleen Fermani, Janet Poillon, Chris Gaastra in memory of Edward Hannon, Dave and Claire Landi, Beth Len, Dalia Ashman, Dina Athanassie, Maryanne Ware

UPDATED BIO 02/08/2018: Lola had her much-anticipated cataract surgery on one eye on January 30th and is doing very well. She will go back to see the doggie ophthalmologist in a few days for a re-check; she now enjoys going for car rides. Lola can see better each and every day and it’s amazing for her foster mom to witness this. She is tolerating the 4 rounds of 6 different eye meds and 2 pills she must have every day since she knows she will get a treat when finished, so she is a little trooper. She is wagging her tail more each day and becoming much more active.

Lola is now going for walks and asking to go outside each day. She is always following her foster mom around and is very curious about her surroundings, especially now that she can see the squirrels in the yard and enjoys barking at them now that she can see them. It’s so amazing to see the progress in sweet Lola as her vision in one eye gets clearer each day.

Lola and her foster parents want to thank each and every person who donated towards her cataract surgery so that she could see again. She still has to see the eye specialist every week to ensure all is well, and these visits and the eye drops she must have are expensive. UYR is only able to afford cataract surgery and the follow-up visit if donations are made to pay for this, so any donation is truly appreciated. Thank you again for our generous donors!

UPDATED BIO 01/11/2018: Lola has been seen by the doggie ophthalmologist in Jacksonville, FL. He agrees with the ophthalmologist that she previously saw – he also feels that sight can be restored in Lola’s left eye. She will have her surgery on Jan 30th. It is expected that she will have vision within 3-7 days post-surgery. Most of the funds have been raised so that Lola will have the opportunity to see again – THANK YOU to all the generous donors that helped to make this happen. We are all anxious to know that this sweet little princess will have her sight restored.

Even though Lola knew something was up when she was taken to the specialist’s office, she sat down like a sweet little girl and waited for her turn to see the doctor. Even though there were other animals coming in and out, Lola continued to be patient - waiting for her turn. She is currently on a regimen of twice-daily drops until her surgery, and of course, there will be several additional drops after her surgery. Lola is such a sweetheart and doesn’t mind all the drops. Lola has some difficult days ahead of her, but with lots of prayers and the help of our wonderful donors, Lola will be able to see again.

PLEASE NOTE: At this time, Lola can only be adopted in the Jacksonville, FL area since she will need to have follow-up visits with the doggie ophthalmologist for six (6) months after her surgery.

UPDATED BIO 01/08/2018: Lola came into UYR almost 4 weeks ago. Her foster mom knows sweet Lola must have been very confused about her move from her original foster home after only a short time, but Lola will soon learn that she was moved so that she will hopefully have a chance to see once again. The move was necessary to relocate her so that she was closer to the doggie ophthalmologist that may be able to restore sight in one of her eyes. Her consultation is in a few days to determine if restoring her vision is possible.

Foster mom keeps a close eye on Lola and notices how she compensates for her blindness by listening intently to what is happening around her. She has also noticed that Lola may be hearing- impaired, but neither of these two things stops this little princess from trying her best to enjoy life. Foster mom knows that Lola has slowly adjusted to losing her vision, but she is hopeful that the surgeon will be able to restore some sight to give Lola a better quality of life.

When Lola is outside where there are no obstacles to get in her way, she enjoys rolling around in the grass and always finds the ball to entertain her. This little precious girl, who is otherwise very healthy, is determined to enjoy her life in whatever way she can. United Yorkie Rescue wants Lola to have the best life possible, so we are asking for prayers that Lola will be a candidate for cataract surgery. UYR and Lola want to thank all the amazing donors who have contributed money so that Lola has this opportunity to have surgery, but there will be on-going costs involved with drops and follow-up visits ….. if you are moved by Lola’s determination and resilience and would like to donate to this sweet little girl, please know that no donation is too small. Stay tuned on how Lola is doing ….

UPDATED BIO 12/22/2017: Sweet and Lovely Lola ended up in a high- kill shelter after she was picked up by Animal Control wandering the busy city streets. It’s a miracle she survived on the streets – Precious Lola is blind. She sat in the shelter, not knowing where she was or what was happening, waiting for someone to come and get her out of there. It was noisy and smelly and dark. She sat day after day and still no one came for her, not even a rescue group. Poor Lola was a day away from being euthanized when United Yorkie Rescue heard about her and stepped in to save this little girlie from an awful fate.

Lola was so dirty and matted from her life on the streets and her days in the shelter. Her beautiful white hair was grey, with caked-in dirt and flea residue. She had an ear infection in both ears, skin dermatitis from flea bites, enlarged lymph nodes and cataracts in both eyes. Her foster mom immediately took her to the vet where she was treated and given medication for the infections and the skin dermatitis, as well as antibiotics for the lymph nodes. The vet gave her foster mom drops to soothe both eyes and told her to get a consult with a veterinarian ophthalmologist as soon as possible.

Her foster mom bathed her and cleaned her up and a beautiful, adorable Maltese was under all that nasty, smelly hair.

Lola is so loving and gives everyone kisses; this little munchkin doesn’t have one mean bone in her body. She gets along with the other dogs and in spite of being blind is able to follow them around, even to the backyard where she does her business. She sleeps in her doggie bed next to her foster mom and dad’s bed. They are worried that on their bed she might fall because she wouldn’t be able to see if she was close to the edge. She has never complained about one single thing, even when sniffed by the cat.

Lola gets around by her sense of smell, feel and hearing. She does bump into things, but never a hard bump because she knows not to run around. Her foster mom watches her and when she is going to bump into something her foster mom calls her name, which she knows, and she will turn around to the voice. There is not one thing about this baby that is bad - except she can’t see.

Now here is the best news ever!!! After her visit to the ophthalmologist we were told she is a good candidate for cataract surgery in her left eye. She is not a candidate for surgery in her right eye due to a luxating lens. It would be a holiday miracle for Lola. Imagine being able to see after being blind for a period of time. This little princess so deserves the gift of sight. She is so special, almost the perfect little girl. We have to do this for her, how can we not? Lola’s cataract surgery will be expensive and we need you now more than ever. Her foster mom said this would make her one and only holiday wish come true if Lola can see again. Please give whatever you can to make this wish come true for Lola. Anything you can give would be so greatly appreciated. Please, let’s give this precious girl the gift of sight, a holiday gift that will last a lifetime. It will be a Christmas Miracle for Lola.

INITIAL BIO 12/10/2017: Lola was recently rescued from a high-kill shelter. Lola may not be a Yorkie, but no one came to adopt this sweet little girlie, and because the shelters this time of year are all over-crowded, Lola was only one day away from being euthanized. United Yorkie Rescue could not let that happen to this precious little yorkie "wannabe". We had to save her from such a fate. Although she just arrived at her foster home, and her foster mom is getting to know her, it appears taht Lola is both a sweet and feisty little angel. She already had the kissy fountain flowing, probably because she was so grateful to be out of that cold, loud shelter. She is oh-so-happy to have a nice, warm loving foster home for the holidays. The shelter was no fun, it was crowded and noisy, and there was no one to hold and cuddle her. And Lola sure does seem to love being held and cuddled.

Lola has seen the vet and she has cataracts in both eyes. The cataract in her left eye is mature and she has very little vision in that eye, and she can see shadows with her right eye. She will soon be seeing a doggie ophthalmologist to get a better idea if cataract surgery can correct the vision in at least one eye. Stay tuned for more on this adorable and sweet little girl coming very soon.

Lola is a beautiful little girlie - although her eyes don't see the outside world clearly, one can clearly see that her eyes are full of love and hope. Lola is happy and a bump here and there does not seem to affect her. There is no barking or growling from this sweetie - just tons of kisses for foster mom Although she has only been in her foster home for a day or two, foster mom already loves her tons.


To date we've spent $2048.37 on Lola's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1945.00 in donations.

I love to chill on the sofa with foster mom

Foster Mom calls me Adorable instead of Luke. I like it.
Florida
Luke

Luke is an adorable and very active 10-1/2 year old 6.5 lb little fella. Luke is being fostered in Tallahassee, FL.

UPDATED BIO 02/10/2018: Luke has now been in his foster home for four months and is doing really well. He is a very active, alert, calm and sweet little yorkie-poo.

Luke loves playing with his squeaky toys and has now gotten the hang of returning and bringing to the “thrower” in the family and knows the command “drop it”. He is a very smart little boy. He still enjoys the sunshine in the puppy play-yard and watching the many squirrels, birds and lizards in the forest surrounding his foster home.

Luke has had sensitive skin issues all his life; he had a vet visit a week ago and unfortunately had both a bacterial and fungal infection from continuously scratching his skin. He received a monthly Cytopoint injection for the itching and continues to take a daily medication to help with this as well. We changed his shampoo for the 3rd time and he also gets medicated baths 2-3x a week to keep the itching under control. We are really hopeful that the injection, along with a new medicated shampoo and RX food will lessen Luke’s itchiness. His RX food is about the same price as any high-quality dog food and is formulated specifically for dogs with probable food and skin sensitivities.

Luke’s foster mom recently collected a sample of his hair and saliva specimens and sent them to a company that specializes in a non-invasive energetic analysis which seeks to identify and diminish non-harmonic energetic factors that may be contributing to his allergy type symptoms. Stay tuned to read future updates on Luke’s test results and what changes may be made in his diet and/or food.

Please don’t turn away from Luke because of his severe skin allergies and age. You will not find a more loving, sweet and dedicated companion dog. Luke needs a special family that understands that he may likely need either an RX or Limited Ingredient Diet/shampoo/medication and/or supplements for the rest of his life. His forever family must be able to afford this potential additional expense.

NOTE: Due to Luke’s small size and his past history with small children in his first home, he cannot be placed in a home with children under the age of 14.

UPDATED BIO 01/03/2018: Luke continues to thrive in his foster home where he has been for the past three months. He is a very active, alert, calm and sweet little yorkie-poo.

He continues to enjoy playing with squeaky toys and is slowly getting the hang of returning them when thrown. He still enjoys being in the puppy play-yard and lounging in the sunshine while keeping an eye on the many squirrels in the surrounding forest. But if a frog or lizard comes into view, his attention turns to them, lol!

Luke has always been a sensitive little guy who prefers soft talking by his humans instead of loud talking. He rolls over for belly rubs anytime he is approached – so sweet and so trusting! He greets anyone who comes into his foster home and will get up on his hind legs and asks everyone to pick him up. He is definitely not an alpha dog, but is sweet as sugar and has a ton of love to give to his human(s).

Luke sleeps all night long in his little bed on the floor in his foster parent’s bedroom. His perfect home would be one with at least one stay-at-home parent so that he could give them lots of attention and affection during the day. Luke gets along with other dogs really well although he much prefers human companionship, but another dog in the home close to his size and age would be okay with Luke.

Luke has always had sensitive skin issues and he is currently taking a medication (approximate cost $30/month) to help with his itchiness. He also gets medicated baths 1-2x a week to keep the itching under control. His new medication, along with a new medicated shampoo and RX food seem to have really lessened Luke’s itchiness. His RX food is about the same price as any high-quality dog food and is formulated specifically for dogs with possible food and skin sensitivities. Luke has lots and lots of love to give to a forever family. Please don’t turn away from Luke because of his allergies and age. You will not find a more loving, sweet and dedicated companion dog.

NOTE: Due to Luke’s small size and his past history with small children in his first home, he cannot be placed in a home with children under the age of 14.

UPDATED BIO 12/04/2017: Luke is doing just great in his foster home where he has been living for the past two months. He continues to be a very alert, active, calm and sweet little yorkie-poo boy.

Luke has decided that he loves playing with squeaky toys and will fetch and “almost” return them – but he is regaining the hang of it and will soon bring the toy all the way back. And drop it. Luke loves going outside in the puppy play-yard and is interested in the many squirrels that are always around and about – but he doesn’t bark at them. He is very interested in what they are doing and will watch them for a long time if permitted. Same with the lizards and frogs that abound in the forest – they totally interest and enthrall him.

UPDATED BIO 11/06/2017: Luke continues to be a very active, but calm and cute little yorkie-poo boy. Luke is back in UYR after his adoptive dad recently passed away.

Luke is a very smart little boy – he is almost 100% housetrained and also loves going outside in the fenced-in yard. He enjoys looking at all the squirrels in the forest trees and from time-to-time will be enthralled by either a lizard or a frog. He is not as happy outside at night-time since there are some night sounds that he is unaccustomed to, such as frogs croaking and alligators growling and rumbling in the lake. But he is getting used to hearing them since he’s been in his foster home for about 5 weeks now, and is now very curious about the sounds.

Luke has always had sensitive skin issues and he is currently taking a medication (approximate cost $25 monthly) to help with his itchiness. He also needs medicated baths 2-3x a week to keep the itching under control. He enjoys the cooling comfort of Tea Tree Oil or Aloe on his itchies when they pop up. Luke has lots and lots of love to give to a forever family. Could that be your’s?

UPDATED BIO 10/05/017: Luke is an active but very calm and cute little yorkie boy. Luke was adopted from UYR 5 years ago, but sadly Luke’s adoptive dad recently passed away and this little munchkin came back into UYR.

Since Luke has been in his foster home, he has let his foster mom know that he is a smart boy! Even though Luke had a history of problems with house-training, he appears to be totally house-trained, and will even let foster mom know when he needs to go out by coming to her and patting her on the leg. Wow!

He is a sensitive little guy who likes to hear inside voices from his people instead of loud talking. He rolls over for belly rubs anytime he is approached – so sweet! Luke is happily sleeping all night long in his little bed and is happy and content. Luke would love having one stay-at-home parent so that he could give them lots of attention and affection during the day.

Luke has always had sensitive skin issues and he is currently taking a medication to help with his itchiness. He will see the vet soon to see if there is a different protocol that may be better for him. Luke has lots and lots of love to give to a forever family. Could that be your’s?

NOTE: Due to Luke’s small size, he cannot be placed in a home with children under the age of 14.

INITIAL BIO 09/30/2017: Luke is an active but very calm and cute little yorkie boy. Luke was adopted from UYR 5 years ago, but sadly Luke’s adoptive dad recently passed away and this little munchkin came back into UYR. He appears to be happy in his foster home and is very curious about the other dogs and gets along well with them.

Luke is an active little boy who can easily jump onto the sofa and chairs and will happily sleep on a little throw or blankie – as long as he is near his person. Luke’s former adopter gave Luke a ton of attention and he especially loves belly rubs. Luke sleeps soundly during the night, and although he slept in bed with his dad, Luke is fine sleeping in the same room with his person. He gives his person loads of attention and is a very easy little boy to care for.

Luke’s perfect home would be one where he is the only dog, or one in which there may be another adult or senior dog for companionship, although Luke isn’t really into playing with another dog at this point in his life. He more enjoys interaction and attention from his human family. His house-training needs some improvement, but his foster mom will be working with him on that. Luke would love having one stay-at-home parent so that he could give them lots of attention and affection during the day.

Luke just came into rescue today, so stay tuned for more updates on this little nugget.

NOTE: Due to Luke’s small size and his past history with small children in his first home, he cannot be placed in a home with children under the age of 14.

Nyla

Meet teeny tiny Nyla. This adorable little sweetheart is 4 years old and weighs only 3 lbs. Nyla is being fostered in North Port, FL.

THANK YOU TO NYLA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Maryanne Ware

UPDATED BIO 02/09/2018: Nyla is doing really well in her foster home. She has seen the vet and had her vaccinations updated. She needs a dental very badly and will be having that next week. Foster Mom said that Nyla is one little sweetheart and is just too pretty for words. She rolls onto her back for belly rubs which she enjoys very much.

Nyla's former owner told us that Nyla would prefer to be an only dog. She likes all the attention and wants to be the center of someone's world. Nyla would prefer a stay-at-home mom or dad so she is not alone.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Nyla's very small size she cannot go to a home with children under the age of 14. NO EXCEPTIONS!

INITIAL BIO 02/07/2018: Tiny little Nyla arrived at her foster home today. This adorable girl is a little underweight and should probably gain at least a half a pound. She will be going to the vet soon to have all her vaccinations updated and to get a well doggie check up. Nyla will also need a dental to make her teeth all shiny and white

Nyla's former owner told us that Nyla would prefer to be an only dog. She likes all the attention and wants to be the center of someone's world. Nyla would prefer a stay-at-home mom or dad so she is not alone.

Nyla will need to stay in her foster home until she puts on some weight. We also need to see what the vet says about her health. Due to Nyla's very small size she cannot go to a home with children under the age of 14. NO EXCEPTIONS!

Please come back very soon for an update on Nyla after her vet visit.

Peanut

Peanut is an adorable 10-1/2 year old, chubby 15 lb Yorkshire Terrier. He is being fostered in Ocala, FL.

UPDATED BIO 01/31/2018: Peanut is adorable and a little love bug. He has been enjoying life with his foster mom and fur brothers for a few weeks now and is starting to show his real personality. He loves playing with his squeaky toys and chasing tennis balls. However, foster mom has to keep the chasing to a minimum because she does not want to over-exert him since he still needs to lose several pounds.

Peanut enjoys going to the dog park and socializing with the other dogs, as well as people. He also enjoys riding in the golf cart and car rides. Peanut loves to sleep in bed with his foster mom and fur brothers. Peanut likes his human to be home with him so he would prefer a forever home where someone is home most of the time. Peanut is anxiously awaiting his forever home. Could that be your’s?

INITIAL BIO 01/13/2018: Meet Peanut who just came into rescue today. Peanut’s elderly owner had to go into assisted living and was unable to take Peanut or his friend Coco Puff with her. Unfortunately, the owner’s son-in-law already had four dogs living at his home and could not keep Coco Puff and Peanut, so he surrendered both dogs to United Yorkie Rescue. Peanut does have to lose some weight. His foster mom has already started working on that with exercise and diet.

Peanut and Coco Pufft just arrived at their foster home so it is has not yet been determined if they are bonded and need to stay together, or can be adopted separately. Peanut and Coco Puff rode nicely in the hour car ride home. They have already greeted their fur-brothers and all are getting along nicely. Welcome to your foster home, Peanut and Coco Puff.

I've Been Adopted!

To date we've spent $0 on Peanut's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Precious Princess Pookie
Florida
Pookie

Pretty Pookie is a 4 year old, 5 pound little Yorkie girl who is very medically needy and needs a patient loving home. She is being fostered in Lighthouse Point, FL.

THANKS TO POOKIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Kathryn Higgins, Maryanne Ware, Christine Gaastra, Ilene Rand, Dianne Schultz, Sandra Wendt, Ana Vanbrocklin, Maryanne Ware, Beth Len, Kathryn Higgins, Irene and Peter Havas in memory of Buddy, Vanessa and Pepe, Janet Davidson, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Karry Rogers, Teresa Beament, Marie Walz, Erika Wilson, Elaine Lint, Virginia Chan, Cara Kliefoth, Paul Sherman, Elaine Lint, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Shanna MacPherson, Holly Keller, Chardelle Blasberg, Cynthia Duranti, Leidy Kessler, Irene and Peter Havas in memory of Buddy, Vanessa and Pepe, Catherine Hurlbut, Jackie Sorrells

UPDATED BIO 12/19/2017: Sweet Little Pookie has had a really rough and rocky road since she came into UYR. Please read about her struggles in her updates below. She is doing amazingly well at this time, and is now ready for a very special home to adopt her. Keep reading ……..

Through a series of very expensive testing, it was determined that Pookie has the most commonly diagnosed form of non-infectious immune-mediated encephalitis called meningoencephalomyelitis, or more commonly referred to as GME. Pookie continues to have mild seizure activity, but she quickly recovers and is just a little sweetheart and in spite of her medical issues, she is a very happy little girlie. She has learned to trust humans again and loves being a part of the “pack”. She also adores her foster parents and will bond quickly to her new forever family.

For now, Pookie is being closely monitored by her vet and specialist to ensure she continues to do well on her current medications. Pookie is now stable and is ready to be adopted into a very special home. What would be the perfect very special home that Pookie needs? Here’s a short list….

- Pookie will always be a special-needs dog due to the diagnosis of GME. She may need to be monitored by, and in the constant care of, her veterinarian and consulting specialist. Her medications may need to be adjusted as needed for her continued care.

- Because Pookie is immune-compromised, she will be unable to receive any further vaccinations. This means that Pookie should NOT be taken to dog parks, grooming salons or be exposed to any animals who are not immunized.

- Pookie’s vision has been affected by the encephalitis and it appears she has blurred vision, although she can get around just fine, doesn’t bump into furniture or walls, and has adapted to this limited vision.

- Due to Pookie’s small size and her special needs, she must go into an adults-only home – no exceptions.

- Pookie may always be on medications which could cost approximately $100 or more per month. Her adoptive home must understand and agree to accept the costs of her medications to keep her healthy.

- Pookie’s adoptive home should be one where her family realizes patience is a big part of loving this special little girlie. She will reward her people with tons of love and happiness.

If you feel that your home and heart is ready for Precious Pretty Princess Pookie, please contact her Foster Mom for any further information, or complete the adoption application by clicking the link below. Pookie has a lot of love to give to a special family and she will definitely make herself at home and let you know how much she loves you – forever. And ever.

Note: The testing involved in determining Pookie’s diagnosis has been very expensive. UYR has spent over $5,000 on the testing/ER Visits/medications for this sweet girlie. If your heart leads you to donate to her medical expenses, every penny will be appreciated from the bottom of our hearts. If you cannot donate towards her medical expenses at this time, please say a little prayer that Pookie will continue to thrive and do well on her current course of treatment/medications.

UPDATED BIO 11/14/2017: Sweet Precious Pookie has had a really rough and rocky road since she came into UYR. Although she came in with a history of periodic seizures, the seizure activity became very serious – very quickly – and for a short time, we did not know if Pookie had the strength and resilience to survive. However, she has surprised us all and is doing very well at this time.

Through a series of very expensive testing, it was determined that Pookie has the most commonly diagnosed form of non-infectious immune-mediated encephalitis called meningoencephalomyelitis, or more commonly referred to as GME. This primary inflammatory condition involves the brain, meninges and spinal cord. She is currently taking a variety of medications which could be reduced or eliminated in the days and weeks ahead if she continues to thrive and do well. The one medication that has recently been added to specifically treat the GME is an immune-suppressive drug called Azathioprine. So far, this new medication is working the way it is supposed to work and we are so very hopeful that her health continues to improve. Since starting Azathioprine, Pookie has been seizure-free and acting like a normal little puppy – and this is super great news!! Pookie is a happy puppy, following the pack, barking and running and this is certainly something to be celebrated.

For now, Pookie is being closely monitored by her vet and specialist to ensure she continues to do well on her current medications. Once she is stable, Pookie will be ready to be adopted into a very special home. What would be the perfect very special home that Pookie needs? Here’s a short list….

- Pookie is considered a special-needs dog due to the diagnosis of GME. She will always be a special-needs dog and she may need to be monitored by, and in the constant care of, her veterinarian and consulting specialist. Her medications may need to be adjusted as needed for her continued care.

- Because Pookie is immune-compromised, she will be unable to receive any further vaccinations. This means that Pookie should NOT be taken to dog parks, grooming salons or be exposed to any animals who are not immunized.

- Due to Pookie’s small size, she must go into an adults-only home – no exceptions. Pookie gets along just fine with other dogs and likes to follow them around.

- Pookie may likely always be on medications which could cost approximately $100 or more per month. Her adoptive home must understand and agree to accept the costs of her medications to keep her healthy.

UPDATED BIO 09/21/2017: Pookie has been a very sick little girl since she arrived in UYR. She was an owner surrender who came to us with a history of seizures, but appeared to improve for a short time with diet and medication. However, she began having uncontrolled seizures again and had 3 hospitalizations in 10 days. The only way to diagnose the cause of Pookie’s seizures was with an MRI and Spinal Tap, which was very expensive. UYR is hopeful that we can raise the funds that have been spent so far so that we are able to help other little doggies like Pookie.

Pookie had the MRI and spinal tap this past Monday. The MRI showed that she has a brain inflammation, which is causing her seizures and temporary blindness. Unfortunately, the Spinal Tap did not reveal the results the vet was looking for due to one of the medications that she is taking. This medication is slowly being reduced and in 2 weeks Pookie will return for a second Spinal Tap. This Spinal Tap will allow the specialist to know if she has a brain infection or inflammation. Based on the results, the vet will be be able to start the correct treatment with the correct dosage of specific medications.

We were encouraged to know that Pookie did not have a brain tumor, cancer or a major brain injury. We are all full of hope that Pookie may recover and be able to lead a normal life. If the results of the Spinal Tap show that she has a brain inflammation, the appropriate medications may manage the inflammation and it may be possible for Pookie to have a fairly normal life. However, if the Spinal Tap shows that Pookie has an infection, the treatment must be more aggressive and positive results may be slower in coming.

Her current seizure status is improving and stable and she appears to be more alert. Pookie enjoys exploring the house and loves to follow her foster mom and dad everywhere, especially if they are headed to the kitchen. Pookie surely does loves to eat!

The bottom line is that once Pookie has the second Spinal Tap in two weeks, we will have the final results and will be able to begin the appropriate treatment. Please keep Precious Pookie in your prayers! We have good feelings and lots of hope that this brave little girl will soon become a healthy and happy little yorkie girlie.

UPDATED BIO 09/13/2017: Pookie here. I came into UYR a very sick little puppy. I was suffering from an undisclosed seizure disorder and was barely able to stand up when I arrived at my foster home. I was just starting to feel a little bit better for a few days, then BAM!

I started having seizures again and the medications that the nice doctors gave to me weren’t working. I have been really sick and I have been suffering a whole lot while all the doctors are trying to figure out what is wrong with me. Since arriving in UYR, I have been hospitalized 3 times in the last 10 days because of the horrible seizures that I can’t control. My foster mom & dad told me that it was painful and very scary for me – and also for them. I am currently taking 5 different medications every day, but so far they have not helped to control my seizures.

Actually, my life has never been easy. See, my first family knew that my health was getting worse day-by-day and they never did anything to help me. They just decided to surrender me to UYR and they weren’t honest about how sick I really was. It was heartbreaking for me to leave the only family I had known, but there was a young child in the home that really scared me all the time. It wasn’t the child’s fault, but my previous parents did nothing to keep me safe. I shook all the time and was terrified, too.

Now that I’m here in my foster home, I love my foster mom and dad very much and I feel safe and loved here. They are very concerned about me and are always loving on me and hugging me and telling me that everything will be okay. But ….they said that the doctors need to find out why I am having so many uncontrollable seizures. I heard them say that the only way to find out what's wrong with my brain is a test called an MRI. I don’t know what that is, but I heard them say it is a very expensive test, and it has to be done by a specialist in Miami.

Don't you think I need a chance to live a better life? I am only 4 years old and my life is just beginning. With your help, I hope I can have many years ahead and a chance to know better what it’s like to be healthy and happy. I know what love feels like cuz I have that in my foster home, but I’ve never known what its like to feel good, since I’ve always been sick.

Foster Mom told me that the people who read what I am writing may want to help me so that I can have that expensive test. She said that just a few dollars from a lot of people will help out a lot. I hope that you can donate towards my medical expenses. Every dollar is going to make a difference to help with paying for the MRI and treatment. It is going to be really expensive, but it may help me to be healthy and ready for my forever family. If you donate, I will send you a special thank you from my little bitty heart to your great big heart. Hugs, Pookie

8/27/17 Pookie is such a sweet girl, but she's had a rough time in the last year. For some reason her legs seem weak. She is too thin by at least a pound or two. In her former home their young child terrorized poor Pookie and caused her a great deal of stress and anxiety where she shook with fear. Her family knew that Pookie needed a home that would be better suited to her needs.

Pookie will need all her vaccinations updated. She will need a heartworm test and get on preventative. Pookie will especially need blood work done so that the vet will have a better idea of what is going on with her. We do know that Pookie cannot go to a home with children. Since Pookie only just arrived at her foster home her foster parents have a lot to learn about her. Once she settles in and her real personality comes out and we have a better idea of her medical issues, if any, her foster parents will know what kind of forever home pretty Pookie needs.

Stayed tuned for more.


To date we've spent $5895.33 on Pookie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $3210.00 in donations.

Romeo after cleaning up - Hello Handsome!

Poor Injured Romeo at the shelter
Florida
Romeo

This fellow is Romeo. He is 9 years old and 7.2 pounds. Romeo has an old leg injury and will need a specialist. He is being fostered in Orlando, FL.

THANK YOU TO ROMEO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Maryanne Ware

UPDATED BIO 01/30/2018: Romeo here. I was recently pulled from a shelter by my special UYR angel Gina. She drove me halfway to Orlando where my new foster mom met her. I'll be camping out here until I'm well enough to go to my furever home.

Let me tell you a little bit about me. First of all, everyone who met me at the shelter and Gina and my foster mom say I am sooooo s-w-e-e-t. I may be considered by some to be somewhat older, but I feel like I'm still in elementary school. I have lots and lots of energy in spite of having an ouchie in my front right leg. Right now, I don't want to walk on it, but I'll be going to a specialist dogtor soon to see if he can make it better.

I'm not letting the leg injury slow me down. I can still keep up with my foster sister and I really do like her, even though she keeps running from me. Foster mom said that even with some temporary mobility issues, I’m on the move all the time and I never complain. The vet took an x-ray and it didn’t show a break, but showed some trauma to the elbow joint (where the heck is that?). He said it may be from an old injury since there is a little bit of muscle wasting cuz’ I haven’t been walking on it. Foster mom said that I really do need a dental and may lose most of my teeth since my previous owner didn’t take very good care of them. That’s okay with me, and I’m sure I can still eat just fine, thank you very much.

Stay tuned for updates on me after I see the orthopedic specialist. Oh, foster mom asked me to let everyone know that my vetting will be kinda expensive, so if you have a few dollars to spare, would you mind donating to some of it to UYR so that they can help me be pain-free and walk on my bum leg again? I will send you a big thank you and will be so appreciative. Romeo – out!

Initial Bio 1/28/18: Little Romeo was taken from the shelter today. This poor little guy was found on the streets and picked up by animal services. No one came to claim him. The shelter was not sure what happened to him on the street, but when they found him he was limping on his right leg. They knew he needed rescue as soon as possible. He needed to see the vet right away. That is when United Yorkie Rescue went and pulled him. We are not sure if his leg is broken or something else is wrong. The vet will need to take X-rays and let us know what kind of care Romeo will need. Romeo also has severe periodontal disease and will need his teeth taken care of as well. We hope after his dental there are some teeth left, but they have obviously been neglected for a long time.

Romeo's foster mom said he is a good boy and well-behaved. Though he does seem to really like his foster sister. Romeo needs a nice bath and a hair cut. His foster mom is going to make sure Romeo is so pretty all the girls will love him.

Please come back very soon as we find out what kind of care and treatment Romeo will need.


To date we've spent $855.03 on Romeo's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $25.00 in donations.

Tess

Meet sweet Tess. She is only 4.7 years old and a little too chubby 9.3 pounds. This little Yorkie girl is being fostered in Leesburg, FL.

Initial bio 2-14-18 Tess lost her first mommy when she passed on a year ago. And now her first daddy is also very sick and no longer able to care for Tess. He had her since she was a puppy, but now he knows his time is short and he knew he could no longer care for Tess. With much sadness and a very heavy heart Tess was surrendered to United Yorkie Rescue. Tess's daddy knew the angels of United Yorkie Rescue would care for her and find her a wonderful forever home.

Tess will need to see a vet soon and get a few more vaccinations. She will need a dental and have her umbilical hernia checked out. She will also have to have the vet look at her right hind leg, which she sometimes limps on. She has been diagnosed with a grade 4/5 locating patella on that leg. We will know more about this when Tess is taken to the vet very soon.

Tess is working on settling into her foster home. She seems to like hanging out with her foster fur brothers and sisters. She is already making herself quite at home.

Tess will be going to the vet very soon and we will know much more about her.


To date we've spent $0 on Tess's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Henley

Meet Henley a 4-year-old, 12-pound Schnorkie (Schnauzer-Yorkie mix). He is being fostered in Hiawassee,GA

THANK YOU TO HENLEY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Lori Reitz, Dawn Gowen

Updated Bio 9/27/17

Henley is a 4-year-old, 12-pound Yorkie/Schnauzer mix being fostered in Hiawassee, GA. Henley has an update to share, in his own words!

Hello Everyone! It’s me, Henley! I thought my fans might enjoy hearing from me, since it has been a while since I checked in.

I’ve got to tell you, life keeps getting better and better for me. I must admit, I thought I was going to be doomed to leave my entire life as a scared, painfully shy dog that would never have a chance at a happy life. All those years in the puppy mill really did a number on me. Well, I was lucky to be saved from the puppy mill in a very large rescue operation with 300 other animals. From there I landed in a shelter where I lived for many weeks. Many of my friends were adopted from there but because of my fear I was labeled “rescue only” and for quite some time no rescues were stepping up to save me so I continued to live my life in a cage at the shelter. To most I was considered damaged goods,……..beyond fixing……“unadoptable.” Lucky for me there were people at the shelter who did not give up on me and they kept reaching out to rescue groups on my behalf. Only a few weeks ago I would just stand with my back to everyone, cowering in fear at the back of my cage. No one could touch me and if they even spoke to me I would panic and lose control of my bowels. I was one very sad, pitiful pup. Then one day, a lady came and took me from my cage and put me in a nice car and we went for a long ride. She seemed un-phased by my behavior and just talked softly to me and did her best to help me stay calm. When we arrived at the end of our journey, I was in a place like I have never seen the likes of. It was a warm, beautiful, clean, place where there was plenty of food and soft beds EVERYWHERE. There were other dogs too that all seemed so happy and they actually loved the two humans who lived with them. To my disbelief these humans were also NICE TO ME and never raised a hand to hurt me and went to all kinds of crazy lengths to make me feel SAFE. In fact, they acted like they LOVED me! They did not force me or punish me or pressure me in any way. “I will NEVER fit in here” I thought to myself. Those humans will mistreat me, or get tired of my fearful behavior and take me back to the shelter I thought to myself. Well, that was MONTHS ago and I am still here and I am starting to change my mind about what my future holds. In fact, I have made some pretty amazing progress if I do say so MYSELF! Let me share with you!

You may remember that I used to only eat my food outside when no one else was around or watching me? Well that has all changed and now I prefer to eat my meals inside the house! It is, after all a very nice house and I have my own special bowl so WHY NOT! All the other pups do it so why not me?! Speaking of the other pups…….I used to stay on the porch and just watch when my humans let my fur siblings outside to play or go potty. I longed to be part of the pack in my heart but I was just too scared to let myself join in. But I have since learned that nothing bad is going to happen to me if I join in with my fur friends and it is fun to be part of a group!

What else? Well…...I used to make my poor foster parents do this crazy ritual to get me to take a treat from their hand. It went like this: I had to be OUTSIDE and my humans had to be INSIDE and out of my sight. Then, they had stretch their arm really far so that ONLY THEIR HAND reached through the door to the outside and ALL I COULD SEE was their open hand with the treat in it. Pretty crazy, huh? Want to know something even crazier? My crazy foster parents parents actually went to ALL THAT TROUBLE just for ME!!!! Well, I decided to cut them some serious slack for being so patient with me and now I will happily take treats from their hands inside the house! But I do prefer to be fed my whole meal first and THEN get a treat for dessert!

What else? Just a short time ago I would NEVER DREAM of hopping up onto the sofa on my own and would CERTAINLY NOT tolerate a human sitting down beside me. No Way! But now foster Mom catches me napping on the soft sofa and I will even allow her to sit down next to me and pet me! This is probably my biggest accomplishment! And I’ve got to tell you, I have been really missing out by not allowing this sofa petting thing to happen a lot sooner! But I just wasn’t ready for that kind of contact until now. You see, all I really need is patience and time and of course a whole lot of love. These are all things I have never, ever had in my life until now.

So that’s my progress report! I many not seem like a lot to some but to me it is a WORLD AWAY from where I was only a few weeks ago. My foster parents tell me constantly how proud they are of me and you know what? I’m starting to feel proud of myself! And confident that I can grow into being a really great pup for a very special adopter who has tons of patience, and a heart that really wants to help a pup that many would have given up on. I still have a lot of work to do to become that happy, confident and unafraid pup that I want to be but I now know I can get there and it makes me feel so very happy! My world is not FULL OF PAWS-I-BILITY! Thanks so much for listening and please stay tuned for my next PUP-DATE. You can email my foster mom with any questions you might have about me at equusjojo@aol.com. Love, Henley

Updated Bio 8/20/2017

Sweet Henley has been with us since the end of June. He came to us from a terrible puppy mill case where over 300 animals were living in deplorable conditions. Henley was one of the lucky ones. He is young, and his physical ailments were relatively simply to address. However, poor Henley had (and still has) deep inner wounds that do not show on the outside but take the longest to heal. As adorable as he looks, poor Henley came to us very broken on the inside. In the shelter he hid and cowered in a corner shaking and lost control of his bowels every time a human approached. After 7 weeks in his foster home Henley is making slow but steady progress on many fronts.

Henley loves to be on the back porch. He insists on eating his food there even though his “eating spot” on the porch is literally only one foot from the inside. Similarly, Henley has recently begun to accept treats from his foster Mom’s hand. There must be a certain set of conditions however. Henley must be outside and Foster Mom must have her body inside and only her hand (with the treat in it) can reach outside. OK Henley, Foster Mom will comply! After all, this is progress!

Henley now sleeps in the same bedroom with his foster parents. He loves his big soft bed with a fluffy pillow topped with a furry blanket. When he is very relaxed or sleeping in his bed he will allow Foster Mom to walk over very quietly and pet his back for a very short period of time and then back off. He is now making full eye contact and responds to his name.

Henley has begun wearing a leash tether. It is only used when necessary for his safety and to get him used to the idea of a leash. Henley is by no means house-trained. He is better than when he came to us however. He is no longer pooping indoors but he will still hike his leg so his foster mom has potty pads placed under all his favorite hiking spots and that helps. He has never had any “accidents” in foster Mom’s bedroom so once he is tucked in his bed he is good for the night.

All these things, while small steps, are huge accomplishments for Henley. The most exciting development of all is you can see a tiny light in his eyes begin to shine that was never there before. He is becoming much more curious about what happens inside. He is learning from his pack and he has a best buddy Skipster who is also a Schnorkie that he emulates.

Henley is not yet ready for adoption or adoption applications yet but he is making steady progress and we are very hopeful. Henley will be the one to tell us when he is ready. When that day comes he will need a very special adopter who is willing to let him take all the time he needs to heal inside. He will need someone who has lots of patience, who will never crate him and who has at least one other good natured dog for Henley to be pals with. Please stay tuned for more updates as Henley continues on his journey towards inner healing. If you would like to donate towards Henley’s care, we would be very grateful. Just click the PayPal button below. Thank You!

Initial Bio 6/29/2017 Henley comes to UYR as the third dog we have taken in from a large GA puppy mill case. Poor Henley has been with another rescue group since April who has reached out to UYR as a breed specific group to help Henley. Henley is scared to death. He cowers and retreats and sadly loses control of his bowels any time a human tries to reach for him. Can you imagine the life Henley must have had to make him react this way? It just breaks our heart. Henleys medical needs have largely been met by the previous rescue other than a dental. He was in rough shape. Now Henleys deepest wounds are the kind not visible to the eye but sadly these are the hardest to heal. We have placed Henley in a perfect foster home where he will have numerous fur-siblings to teach him how to trust and just be a dog. We will be getting him some pharmaceutical assistance to help with his severe anxiety and a behaviorist too if needed. Henley will not be available for adoption for many weeks and honestly we can't even speculate when that will be. It's all up to Henley....he will come first....His needs, his time frame...no matter how long that takes. If you would like to partner with us to turn Henleys life around you can do that by donating towards his care. Simply click the PayPal button below and THANK YOU.


To date we've spent $299.29 on Henley's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $100.00 in donations.

Miloh

Meet Miloh a 11 year old, 10 pound Silky Terrier . He is being fostered in Hiawassee,GA

THANK YOU TO MILOH'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Jennifer Eusner

Updated Bio 11/24/2017: Miloh has been with us for a little over a month now and we have gotten to know him a bit better. Miloh is crazy about walks and really requires two or three a day. He has some arthritis in his back and along with his supplements and daily activity it really seems to help. He doesn’t let it slow down his ball chasing or Tug-of-war. Even though he loves to walk, a physical fence and not an electric fence is required. Miloh prefers to go to a home where he is the only dog. He has lived in a home for many years where he was the only dog and had difficulties when new dogs where introduced to him. Children must be 12 years or older. Miloh is up to date on all shots and a healthy boy. The Vet says he is in good shape besides the arthritis which hasn’t given him much difficulty so far. Miloh is 10 pounds of funded love and just wants to be your best boy! If you are retired, or work from home, or can take him to work with you, Miloh may be the one for you.

Initial Bio 10/22/2017: Miloh is an 11 years young Silky Terrier who weighs 10 pounds. He is up to date on shots and is neautered. Miloh is just a fun loving guy! Some of his favorite activities are playing fetch, tug of war, going outside to run, or for a nice walk around the neighborhood on his leash. Miloh comes when called and has the manners of a gentlemen. He is not opposed to popping into your lap for a few cuddles and kisses either. He also loves his baths and will jump into a lake if allowed! Real water boy! He even enjoys riding on a 4 wheeler with Foster Dad, when he is inside the house he is Foster Moms best boy! Miloh is housebroken but wears a belly band indoors because sometimes he can get overexcited and pee. He is familiar with a doggie door and will use one. Miloh will follow his human around the house and is very interested in what you are doing until nap time . He is a wonderfully sweet dog that loves his people. Stay tuned for more updates as Miloh settles into his foster home and they get to know him better.


To date we've spent $233.36 on Miloh's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $100.00 in donations.

Oliver IL
Illinois
Oliver

Oliver is a Yorkie mix who is 10-years-old and weighs 17 pounds. He is residing in Beach Park, IL

THANK YOU TO OLIVER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Holly Stavis, Kathryn Fore, Sheila Landis in memory of Miss Chickie Dog, Anne Faasse, Anne Faasse, Melisssa Farrington

Update Bio. 02/06/18. Hi, I’m Oliver. I’m looking for my fur-ever home. At the present time I live with my foster mom and dad, three fur sisters and a fur brother in Beach Park, IL. I get along with my fur sisters but my fur brother does not like me and steals my chews. We have had a few tangles when I try to take them back and mom has had to separate us. It is always his fault. Mom feeds me separate from everyone else because I like to eat and I don’t share my food with anyone.

I am up to date on all my vaccinations and they think I’m about 10 to 11 years old. I am blind, have a collapsed trachea, an enlarged heart and some arthritis. Mom says I’m a pretty smart little guy as I have the house memorized and can get all around and up and down the stairs very well. I like to follow my mom everywhere she goes. Mom says since I am blind my sense of hearing and sense of smell are extremely keen because I don’t miss a thing. Mom lets me lie on the sofa beside her and I give her kisses.

I’m bigger than a regular Yorkie as I’m a Yorkie mix. They aren’t sure what the mix is but I weigh in at 20 pounds and I have much longer legs than a regular Yorkie, so I stand much taller than my fur sisters and my fur brother. Mom says I remind her of Tramp from the movie, “Lady and the Tramp” as I have that “scruffy” look and the long legs, however she says I’m quite a handsome guy. Mom puts me in the bathtub and gives me a bath to make me fluffy and smell pretty. I tolerate the baths very well and I like to be brushed.

Mom thinks I should go to a home without small children as I am blind and if a small child fell on me or accidentally hurt me, I would be startled and might bite. I am very aggressive around dogs I don’t know. Mom has to keep me on the short leash when we go to the vet and she warns all the pups who want to come up to me and be friendly that I’m blind and show aggression toward the pups I don’t know. I should probably go to a home without other dogs or with dogs who are very calm and even tempered. Mom isn’t sure if I like cats or not.

I am very good about going to the patio door and waiting to be let out to go do my business. A fenced yard would be best for me as I like to sniff and wander about. I walk on a leash but get aggressive if we meet other dogs along the way. Mom says I’m a great little guy and will provide a lot of love and companionship to the right person looking for a scruffy little love bug. Please contact my foster mom at yorkiefostermom04@gmail.com if you think I might be a great furry roommate ☺

Update Bio. 11/21/17. Oliver is a 10-year old Yorkie-mix who is living with his foster family including a fur brother and three fur sisters in Beach Park, IL. He was heart worm positive when he was taken into the rescue but has received treatment and is now heart worm free. He does have an enlarged heart, a collapsed trachea which makes him cough frequently, some arthritis and he is blind. Despite all this, Oliver is a happy little boy and gets around the house quite well and he even maneuvers the stairs pretty well. He knows to go to the patio door and barks when he needs to go out and do his business.

We have had a few little incidents with him biting and snapping his fur brothers and sisters, but usually it is when he bumps into them or stumbles over them and it startles him, making him snap at them. For this reason, I believe he should be in a home with no other dogs or small children. He did bite me a couple of times, once when I stepped back and stepped on his little foot, he nipped me on the foot and once he was drinking water and his fur brother decided he was thirsty too and tried to get a drink while Oliver was drinking. As I went to push Yogi away, Oliver snapped and got my arm. Oliver is a little possessive with food and water.

Oliver loves to be with his people. He will follow me all over the house and loves to cuddle up on the sofa with me. He does like his own space, as well, so we have a large kennel with his bedding in it that we keep the door open on all the time. He goes in there on his own and will nap or chew on a rawhide.

Oliver is still looking for his furever home. If you think he might be a good fit for your household, please contact me, his foster mom at yorkiefostermom04@gmail.com and we can set up a visit.

Update 10/27/17: Oliver is a happy little fellow with a few problems. The collapsed trachea causes him to cough. He wants to gulp water but we have to slow him down or he coughs even more. Walks are always enjoyable for Oliver but we try to keep them short because of his arthritis and enlarged heart. Also, he tends to get excited outdoors sniffing scents of other dogs and probably coyotes as we live in an area where they abundant. When Oliver gets excited, he coughs more. Hydrocodone seems to help some but we’ve had good results with children’s Benadryl as it calms him down and keeps him from coughing so much.

Being blind has not really been much of an obstacle for Oliver as he finds his way all over the house. He loves to be with his people and will follow me upstairs and back down if I don’t close the gate to keep him the main level of the house.

He will snap if he gets startled and he has snapped at his foster brother and bit one of his sisters when they walked too close to him and startled him. For the most part he gets along very well with the other dogs in the household. Due to the blindness, I would suggest that he go to a home with no small children or other pets.

We had the opportunity to take Oliver camping over the summer. He is a great little camper and travels very well. We took his kennel for him to sleep in at night and he felt right at home in the travel trailer. Of course he had to find the water bowl and get himself acclimated to his new surroundings, but he adjusted very well.

Oliver loves to stretch out on the sofa next us. He isn’t able to get up there on his own so we have to lift him. I bought a set of stairs but he doesn’t feel comfortable using them, probably because he can’t see exactly what they are and understand the purpose.

Oliver is a great little boy and is still waiting for his forever home. He is precious!

Update Bio. 08/22/17. Oliver is a happy little guy, despite the problems with his blindness and collapsed trachea. He barks at strange noises or noises he has not heard before. We have a bug zapper outside the patio fence, and he goes nuts at night when it is busy zapping bugs.

He gets along okay with his fur sisters, for the most part. He and Lexi had little episode a while back and he bit her. He does not like his fur brother and his fur brother, Yogi, does not like him. If Oliver bumps into Yogi, he will snap. They pretty much stay at opposite ends of the kitchen/breakfast area. Due to Oliver being blind, I highly suggest that he go to a home with no small children or other dogs. As far as I know, he has never been around cats.

I had Oliver tested for thyroid problems, Cushings disease and diabetes because of the excessive amount of water he drinks. All came back negative, thank goodness. I guess he is just a really thirsty little guy. We do have to tell him to stop or he will stand there and empty the water bowl and then throw up. We say, “Oliver, enough!” and he stops drinking and goes to his bed. He is on hydrocodone which helps with the coughing spells he has with the collapsed trachea. He also eats grain free food and treats.

Oliver finds his way around the house but will bump into things if they are out of place. He goes to the glass sliding door and wants out to do his business. He manages steps without too much difficulty.

He likes to be with his people and will follow. I’m not sure if he follows the scent or if it is his keen sense of hearing. He definitely knows the sound of the “treat jar” and is there in a flash.

Oliver is still patiently waiting for his furever family. If you are interested in this lovable, little man, just follow the link below to complete an application.

Update Bio. 07/22/17. Oliver lives with his foster family in Beach Park, IL. He is looking for a home, preferably with adults only, since he is blind and will sometimes snap if startled. Lying on the sofa next his person is one of his favorite activities. He is a very loving little guy.

He has a collapsed trachea and coughs if he gets excited or is very active. Oliver likes to go for walks but we keep them short so he doesn't have problems coughing from his collapsed trachea.

Oliver is very aggressive with his food bowl, so for that reason, he eats away from the other fur babies in the house. It might be best if he were an only dog, as he will bump into or stumble over the other dogs since he is blind and cannot see them.

The vet’s estimate is that Oliver is about 10 years old. He is a little bigger than a regular Yorkie, as he is a Yorkie mix. We aren’t sure what the mix is but more than likely some type of terrier. He is about 16 pounds, which is about the maximum weight he should be since the heavier he is, the harder it is for him to breathe. He does love to eat, though, and will try to clean out all the other bowls. H also likes to hang out in the kitchen in case foster mom drops some food while preparing his dinner.

Oliver is currently undergoing tests due to excessive water drinking, urination, weight gain and lethargy. He is up three pounds from his vet visit in December to 18.8 pounds, even though we have cut back a little on his food. Diabetes has been ruled out, as well as Cushings. They are testing for thyroid problems. The vet said the lethargy could be cause from his heart but is unable to explain the excessive water drinking and urination. Thus far, his liver and kidney functions are normal.I would like to get him as well as possible before letting him go to his forever home, so he is waiting patiently. Stay tuned for information on Oliver.

Update bio. 06/30/17. Oliver is living with his foster family in Beach Park, IL. He is approximately 10 years old and about 15 pounds. Although he still has coughing spells due to the collapsed trachea, he seems to be coughing less in the warmer months than he was in the winter.

Although Oliver is blind, he knows the layout of the house and gets around well.

We have another little male, Yogi, who does not like Oliver too well, so when Oliver comes near his bed, Yogi will snap at him. I try to keep the two of them apart as much as possible.

Oliver will snap when he is startled and for this reason, I am recommending that he go to an all adult home or a home with older children.

Oliver is very lovable and likes attention. He loves to sleep out on the patio on the loveseat beside me. He does have issues with arthritis but daily doses of glucosamine seem to help. He can maneuver steps quite well despite being blind and having arthritis.

He is patiently waiting for his furever home. If you are interested in adopting Oliver, just follow the link below to be taken to the application.

Updated Bio 5-30-17. Oliver is still residing with his foster family in Beach Park, IL. We believe he is either mostly blind now, or totally blind. He gets around but does bump into things. He can maneuver around the house fairly well most of the time and depends on his sense of hearing and smell. He follows me every place I go.

Because the weather is nice and he is outdoors more, he seems to be breathing a little better due to the collapsed trachea. He is on hydrocodone and Benadryl. Both seem to relax him and he doesn’t cough quite as much.

Oliver does not get along with his brother, probably because Yogi was formerly an “only child” and he is very possessive with his toys and his bed. When Oliver gets near, Yogi snaps at him and Oliver will snap back. Lexi, Oliver’s sister seems to be losing her patience with Oliver. He will bump into her and she will snap at him. We’ve had no dog fights but due to the constant snapping, I would highly recommend that Oliver go to a home with no other dogs or small children.

Oliver loves his walks but we don’t go too far as he has arthritis and gets a little stiff and sore. He is on daily doses of glucosamine which helps.

He is a happy little dog, very lovable and likes to give kisses. He wants to be with his people and will snuggle up beside me on the sofa. He is patiently waiting for his forever home. If you res interested in adopting Oliver, please follow the link below to be taken to the application.

Bio. 04/15/17. Oliver, to the best of our knowledge is about 10 years old now. He is looking forward to being outdoors more since the weather is getting warmer. He loves the fresh air and sunshine. He sits out on the patio with his nose in the air, sniffing all the scents and guarding his home from any intruders, (geese and ducks) by barking when he hears them. He struggles with the collapsed trachea, some arthritis and the blindness. Despite being blind, he has amazing hearing which helps him get around very well. I also think he memorizes where things are in the house. On occasion he will bump into the other dogs and his instant reflex is to snap, although he has never bitten. The other dogs realize his handicap and seem to accommodate him by just moving out of his way. He is on hydrocodone for the collapsed trachea. It seems to relax him so he can sleep without coughing so much.

Oliver is a great little dog and would make a wonderful constant companion. He really likes to be with his people and follows me all over the house, even up and down the stairs. He loves sprawling out on the sofa beside me and will stay there as long as I do. He also loves to be brushed. I tell him what a handsome guy he is and how lucky we are to have him with us. As loveable as he is, a home without small children or other dogs would probably be best. Oliver gets along well with our dogs, but when we take him out to the vet or places where he doesn’t know the dogs, he gets very defensive and wants to protect us. Once he learns the other dogs in the household he will probably be fine, but I still think maybe a home with no other dogs would be best for him. He needs a fenced yard as well. He can be taken out on a leash but he likes the freedom to romp around the fenced back yard.

Oliver is a happy, little guy and is patiently waiting for his forever home. If you would like more information or how to go about adopting this little guy, please go to our website, unitedyorkierescue.org and complete an adoption application or email his foster mom at yorkiefostermom04@gmail.com

Update Bio. 03/15/17. Oliver is a whole year older now and is patiently waiting for his forever family/home. He was all ready for spring, and then Mr. Winter decided he wasn’t finished with us and we ended up with two feet of snow on the fenced patio. Oliver loves to be outdoors, so this has put a hamper on things as he really enjoyed some of the 60 and 70 degree weather we experienced back in February.

The collapsed trachea is an ongoing problem with little Oliver. He has good days and then some not so good. The hydrocodone seems to relax him and he sleeps more which causes him to cough less; however, his super hearing doesn’t miss a thing. I try to let him sleep and tip toe upstairs, but when I turn around, he is right behind me. He certainly likes to be with his people! He loves to stretch out on the sofa next to me and sleep when I watch a movie.

Oliver will still snap if one of the other dogs is standing in his path and bumps into them. I don’t feel this is any type of aggression and he has never bitten. It seems it is more of a reflex instinct, as he is blind and doesn’t know what or who he bumped into. The other dogs are pretty good to move out of his way when they see him coming their way. Oliver loves to eat and is doing well on his grain-free food with pumpkin flakes sprinkled over the top.

We’re looking forward to warm days out on the patio once the snow melts. He loves to be out in the fresh air as he seems to be able to breathe better standing outside with his nose up in the air. He loves walks but we’ve had to limit the length as he starts coughing and has some trouble breathing if we walk too far.

Oliver is a bundle of love and affection patiently waiting for his forever home. Please contact his foster mom at yorkiefostermom04@gmail.com if you would like to schedule a visit with this little guy!

Update Bio. 02/15/17. Oliver is a very happy, little guy and loves to give kisses, despite being blind and having problems with his trachea. Morning and evening walks have been shorter since he tires out easily, but he loves to be outdoors and will sometimes meander around the fenced patio for 15 minutes at a time. We are going back to the vet next week to hopefully get another medication to help him breathe better.

Oliver knows the layout of our house and gets around very well for not being able to see. He also manages the stairs very well. His hearing is exceptional! I can tiptoe past him sleeping in his bed and he immediately jumps up and follows me. He loves to be with his people!

Oliver is waiting for his forever home. He has lots of love to give and he would is eager to be your constant companion 💕

If you are interested in adopting this handsome fellow, just follow the link below to complete the application.

Update Bio. 01/15/17. Oliver is doing well. Although his vision seems to have deteriorated, he gets around great in the house most if the time. I feel his ability to navigate the house is due to his memorization of the layout. Coughing and hacking have increased, somewhat, due to the collapsed trachea, as well as the heart problems. He seems to take things in stride, and is such a happy little guy! He is also doing very well on his grain free diet. I bought him some grain free treats because he is a great little guy and deserves his occasional treat. He does love to eat!

Oliver loves to snuggle up with his people on the sofa. He also loves to give kisses. His sense of hearing is remarkable! If he is sleeping and I tiptoe around him to go upstairs, I rarely get to the bottom of the stairs before he is right behind me. He follows me all over the house! Not bad for a little guy who is pretty much blind!

Oliver is patiently waiting for his forever home with lots of love. He will make a wonderful companion for some lucky person/persons! If you feel this person/persons is you, just follow the link below to complete an application.

Update Bio. 12-18-16. Oliver is doing very well and waiting patiently for his forever home. He is a very lovable little guy, but I still feel he would do better in a home without small children. We know he is blind in the one eye and has limited vision in the other but he does quite well maneuvering around things unless we move a chair or one of the other dogs is standing in his path. He does bump into things frequently. He follows me all over the house and manages to get up and down the stairs fairly well.

Walks have been shorter recently due to high winds, bitter cold and blowing snow, but he still enjoys them. When we get his leash out, he gets all excited and stands by the door waiting to go out. We run out, do our business and run back inside.

I had him at the vet for a vaccination and asked the vet to test him for diabetes because he seemed to be drinking a lot of water, but great news! No diabetes! We have him on food that agrees with his digestive system and I bought special grain free treats that he loves but we limit because he would go through the whole bag if he had his way. This boy loves to eat!

Oliver is a happy little guy and is waiting for his loving forever home. He will provide unconditional love, companionship and much happiness!

Update Bio. 11-15-16. Oliver is adjusting well to his new foster home in Beach Park, IL. He goes for walks in the mornings and evenings and gets so excited when we put the harness and leash on him. We don’t go for long walks since he does have some arthritis, but he does enjoy getting out and sniffing all the scents and walking on the grass on the boulevard between the sidewalk and the street and kicking up his feet.

For being blind in one eye and having limited vision in the other, Oliver does fairly well going up and down the stairs. He is able to go up much better than coming down due to depth perception, which seems to be off but he stretches his leg out to feel the next step below him. As Oliver ages, along with the arthritis and limited vision, a home without stairs might be better suited for him.

Oliver loves to cuddle up on the sofa and be next to his people. He is a very sweet and lovable little guy and will follow you wherever you go. He loves to be petted and have his ears and neck rubbed, but he does startle easily if something comes up on his blind side. I feel a home with adults or older children might be better for him, as they would understand his vision problems.

At the present time, Oliver is on a grain free diet and doing very well. This adorable little guy is looking for his forever home. If you are searching for a loyal, lovable little companion to take walks and curl up on the sofa with, Oliver is your guy! If you are interested in adopting Oliver, follow the link below to complete an application for adoption.

Update Bio. 10/15/16: Oliver is still waiting for his perfect, forever home. He is a very sweet, senior and would do well in just about any home. He'd love to be an only dog with a retired or stay at home person or family, but also gets along with respectful children. He does not need a fenced in a yard, as he doesn't like to be outside alone, and loves going on walks. Oliver would really love a home of his own, so contact his foster mom with any questions! To complete an application for adoption, follow the link below to be taken to the UYR site.

Update Bio. 9/19/16 - Oliver is still doing great in his foster home and was recently peremptorily tested again for heartworms. He tested very faintly positive, but the vet said this is not uncommon for dogs that has previously been as strong positive as Oliver was. The vet recommends waiting until t 6 months after his completed treatment (which would be the beginning of December) and retesting again. We are hoping by then all the former signs of the heartworms in Oliver's system will be completely gone. Until then, he will simply stay on Heartworm preventative monthly, and we will keep hoping for a loving home he can retire in. He may be considered a "senior", but he is actually quite active, especially when taken on walks and out in the yard with other dogs. Inside the house, he prefers to be much more lazy and sleeps most of the time, except when ambling around to follow you from room to room. We are accepting applications on Oliver now, and would consider letting him go to a home with a great vet reference. Please do not hesitate to contact his foster mom with any questions.

Update 8/18/16: Oliver continues to do well since his heartworm treatments. He has been happy and looking forward to his recheck appointment in September to verify that his heartworm disease has been cured. Watch for more on Oliver in September.

Update Bio: 7/5/16 – It’s Oliver again, and I hope everyone had a happy 4th of July! I barked at all the fireworks I could hear, which was not as much fun for everyone else in the house, but was great fun for me!! It is good that I’m not afraid of loud noises though. So I’ve been doing really well since I had my heartworm treatment. I’m feeling great, and much more active now. In fact, it’s kind of hard for foster mom to get good pictures of me because my butt is always wiggling and moving! But I recently got a new haircut since it’s so hot out. I look very dapper, so she wanted to put up some new pictures of me happy and smiling now that I’m feeling better. That missing patch of hair you see on my back is where I had to be shaved for my heartworm injections but don’t worry, it will grow back. Foster mom says I’m still super handsome! Based on my current health situation, we are pretty sure the heartworms are all gone, but I will need a test in September to confirm that. It’s not a very expensive test, but we will need to be sure my adopters are willing to getting this test. It’s a very important test, as is keeping me on heartworm preventative. I never want to go through that awful treatment again! I am very sweet, love to snuggle, enjoy walks and being a couch potato. I would really love a furever home of my own. Please fill out an application to adopt me, or contact my foster mom with any questions you might have, and she will respond asap! Thanks for visiting! Love, Oliver

Update Bio 6/4/16: Oliver here, just wanting to update everyone on how I'm doing. I just had my 2nd and 3rd shots to kill the nasty heartworms I had. It was really hard going through this treatment and I don't ever want to do it again! The heartworms are still dying off so I'm can't go to a new home just yet. I'm in recovery and will have to be re-tested to make sure they all die, but I wanted everyone to know that I'm doing ok and the vet and my foster mom are taking great care of me. To remind everyone, I am totally house trained and crate trained, although I have spent enough time in my crate during this treatment and really don't want to be in there anymore. I have limited vision, but I get around really well and learn my surroundings quickly. I do have some arthritis but I can do a couple of stairs up and down into the yard or patio. I wouldn't be able to do them up and down in a second story house though. I'm pretty chill and since I'm older I just need a place where I can hang out, wander around the yard and house, and sleep. I am up to date on all my shots, medications, and also neutered. If you would like to give me a loving home when my treatment is complete, please fill out an application or contact my foster mom at her email below if you have any questions. She'd be more than happy to talk to you about the process and my treatment!

Initial Bio 5/16/16: Hi everyone! My name is Oliver and I am being fostered in Shiloh, IL. I'm a Yorkie mix, estimated to be about 9 years old. I weigh 17 lbs., and I could stand to lose a little weight. I am a very lucky boy because I was in a shelter for 2 months, in a rural farming community, when UYR pulled me because they heard I had medical issues. It turns out I'm heartworm positive and never received medical treatment for my condition, which is very serious! I had a severe case of kennel cough, which went away after being treated with antibiotics, although I still have a slight cough from the heartworms. I also have compromised eye sight (cataracts) and arthritis, which makes it difficult for me to climb stairs. I know my situation sounds sad, but I'm very happy to be in a loving foster home and away from my old life. My foster mom says I'm a sweet boy and a tough cookie. There are only a few instances when I get to take a break from my crate: one is when I get to go outside to potty. Foster mom puts me on a leash and we walk to the end of the driveway and back. The other time is when she carries me up the stairs and I lay in her crafting room while she works. Sometimes I bump into things, but I am learning how to navigate my new surroundings, so this scenario is only on rare occasions. My favorite times are when foster mom gives me scratches while I lay in my crate. Also, I do not mind children or other dogs, but cats are another story! My most pressing issue is that I am heartworm positive, which has quite the recovery process. At first I was on pills, also known as the slow-kill method. After several months of this treatment, an ultrasound revealed that it was not effective and the worms were "alive and kicking". I went to see a new vet, who just completed a thesis on heartworm, so I am in really good hands. He began a new treatment that requires injections. I had my first one last week and I will receive the next 2 injections next month. This could be a long process and I cannot be adopted until the vet gives me the green light, but if you would like to apply in advance to be considered to adopt me, please fill out an application on our website www.uyr.us. Also, my treatment is very expensive, so please consider donating to my vet care and stayed tuned for progress updates! Love, Oliver

Lilly and Taz
Indiana
Lily (and Taz)

Meet Lilly, a sweet 6-year-old Yorkie Poo being temporarily fostered in Evansville, IN. Lilly is half of a bonded pair and must be adopted with her sister Taz who is only 4 pounds and solid black but these 2 are litter-mates and have been together their whole lives. Both are sweet as can be.

THANK YOU TO LILY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Jacquelyn Harmon, Dale LaRocco, Tracey Merrick

Initial Bio 2/5/18

Lily and Taz are a precious pair of 6 year-old Yorkie Poo sisters presently being cared for in Evansville, IN. These two are litter mates and very attached to each other and MUST be adopted together.

Grab your hankies Yorkie-Lovers then grab your lap tops or tablets and apply to adopt because this precious pair of lap dogs have a story that will warm your heart and inspire it.

These 2 had a wonderful human Mom who fell ill with a with a seemingly mild illness. This human dog Mom was middle aged, working, and had no idea that within a few days this seemingly minor illness would claim her life. A family friend made arrangements for Lily and to be boarded at with a Veterinarian while the family dealt with their grief. But out of great tragedy can come unimaginable blessings and Lily and Taz’s human Mom made the final and most loving last gift possible because she had decided long ago to be an organ donor. Because of this selfless act there are multiple strangers in various locations who will get a second chance at life. Lilly and Taz were the center of her life and mentioned by name in her obituary. Sadly, the family left behind is unable to keep them and has reached out to UYR asking for our help finding these two precious souls a perfect forever home together.

Lily is the larger (7 pounds) tan colored sister and she loves to mother tiny 4 pound Taz who is black and treats her like her baby. Both dogs love other dogs & never meet a stranger. Taz (black dog) LOVES belly rubs. Both are loving and playful with lots of life and love left to give a lucky adopter.

You might never guess these two came from the same litter of pups but their doggy Daddy was a full blooded Yorkie and Mom was a Yorkie Poo mix. The end result: two precious but very different looking sisters together since birth that love each other to the moon and back. They are house trained, well behaved snugglers looking for a new furever. If you think you have room in your home and heart to give these sweet souls please submit an application today.

Both pups need to be spayed and have dentals and this will occur this week. If you can help us with the cost of their care it would be so very appreciated. To help, click the PayPal button below

Maggie May
Indiana
Maggie May

Meet the gorgeous Maggie May. Maggie May is a 4 year old, 4.5 lb. little girl being fostered in Greenfield, IN. She needs an MRI to diagnose a neurological issue and won't be available for adoption for 2-3 months until we address the cause of her problem. Maggie May cannot be adopted outside the state of Indiana.

THANK YOU TO MAGGIE MAY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Denise Fantetti, Darlene Schultz, Sandra Wendt, Raygan Stone, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Stephanie Groves, Stephanie Groves, Gail Sherman, Melissa Chiera, Karry Rogers, Angie Cagle, Sandra Wendt, Rebecca Root

Updated Bio: 1/13/17. Maggie May is doing well in her foster home. She isn’t a cuddly little girl yet, but she does love to sit and have rubs on her head and back. She loves dinner time, napping, riding in the car and likes to keep her fur brother and sister in line. She enjoys exploring the house and follows her foster mom and dad around everywhere. She certainly does not enjoy going outside in this cold Indiana weather.

Maggie May has had a busy first 30 days in foster care. She came to UYR with information of having a fall in January 2017. Upon receiving her original vet records, we found that this sweet little girl has many other issues and no testing was done. Maggie May circles constantly only to the left, and may have diminished sight in her right eye. She has regurgitation issues and has been taken off hard kibble and put on soft, canned, pate food. This has been a temporary solution to her eatingsuccessfully. Maggie May has weakness in her hind legs, and loses her balance frequently. Maggie saw the dogtor and is scheduled for a dental and several extractions on January 17.

We had three specialty consults this week, and she spent the night at the hospital. She is scheduled for an MRI and spinal tap on January 24, to see exactly what neurological issues she has. We also had a consultation with an orthopedic doctor who believes that she has luxating patellas and possibly a torn ACL in her right leg. These issues will be addressed at a later date. Maggie May also met with an internist regarding her digestive issues, and will have an xray and other tests in the future.

We visited the groomer this week and had her hair shortened to make care easier on her. She did not like the grooming process at all.

We are so thankful that she was rescued when she was, so that we can provide the care and medical attention that she so desperately needs. Maggie May’s testing will be very expensive, but will help her to be healthy, pain free and hopefully ready for her furever family. If your heart leads you to donate to help defray the very high costs of her tests and treatments, it would so greatly be appreciated. Just a few dollars from a lot of people will help her. If you cannot donate, please say a little prayer for her.

It has been determined that when Maggie May is ready to be adopted she will only be adopted in the Indiana, to a pet free, adult only home.

Initial Bio. 12/15/17. Please welcome sweet Maggie May. She has had her entire world turned upside down when she was surrendered by her original owner. Maggie is 4 years, 9 months old and weighs 4.5 lbs. She is very timid and shy, and appears to be potty trained. We don't know a lot about her as she has only been with her foster mom for only 24 hrs. She will have her vet check appointment the first of next week. We do know that she had a fall a few months ago and is still on a medication. She is up-to-date with her shots and she has been micro-chipped and spayed. It will be hard not to fall in love with this little angel.

What a handsome face!

Oh Yes, I am cute for sure.
Iowa
Danny Boy

Meet the handsome Danny Boy who is 3 years old, 10 pounds and is being fostered in Urbandale, IA. Danny has some behaviors we are working to correct, and he will not be ready for adoption until Spring.

01/03/17. Update Bio. Danny is still learning how to behave around new people. He still struggles with his desire to protect his foster mommy. This behavior has greatly improved since Christmas Day.

Danny is a very loving boy who needs a family who understands his need to feel safe around new people.

He needs more work in this area, but hopefully in a few months, will be ready to start meeting families interested in adopting him.

12/20/2017. Initial Bio. Danny is learning how to behave around people. This process will take several months to insure he doesn’t revert back to aggressive behaviors. When he is placed, it must be within 10 miles of Urbandale, Iowa. No exceptions. Danny is very very loving towards one or two people that he becomes attached to. He needs a family that understands how to be leaders or poor Danny feels it’s his job to aggressively protect his family.

Updates will be given monthly; although, Danny won’t be placed until late spring at the earliest.

Sincerely, Foster Mom

Sweet,beautiful Lexie
Kentucky
Lexie

Lexie is an 8-9 (estimated) year-old, 9-pound Yorkie girl being fostered in Elizabethtown, KY.

THANK YOU TO LEXIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Bonnie Vaupel, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Teresa Beament, Tony Heath, Irene and Peter Havas in memory of Buddy, Vanessa and Pepe, Marciela Berner

Updated Bio 1/18/18:1/17/2018:

Lexi has finished the first phase of the heartworm treatment. She is scheduled for her first injection on February 2. Secretly, foster Mom is worried about trying to keep her activity down to an absolute minimum once she has the injections.

With all the snow we have had here lately, foster Mom has discovered that Lexi is not to keen on the wet and cold snow. She is so cute ... she lifts her legs as if she is going to be frozen on spot. She is getting better about going potty. She is slowly starting to use the puppy pad more when foster parents are at work. She has a subtle signal to let us know she needs to go out, so foster parents aren’t always picking up on it. Foster Mom is wondering if she could be trained to ring a bell or bark as we need a more obvious potty signal.

Lexi is a sweet, loving girl, but there are signs that she has been abused. She cowers when we try to pick her up and has snapped at us when scared. We are trying to discern what in our behavior has caused this sweet girl to be fearful. On the other hand, she absolutely loves squeaky toys. As a Christmas gift, foster mom received three dragons. Lexi was in Doggy Play Paradise. She hoarded the toys from her foster siblings and played and played with them, until she managed to destroy the squeaky—apparently the object of the play.

Lexi loves to sit on foster Mom’s lap, or at least next to her, and she enjoys sleeping in our bed.

12/4/17 Initial Bio

Sweet Lexie landed in a shelter after being picked up as a stray by animal control. Sadly, this precious girl has tested positive for heart worm disease and must now undergo the unpleasant and lengthy treatment to rid her tiny body of the organism that would destroy it. For this reason, Lexie will not be adoptable until spring of 2018. She is such a sweet girl and deserves better than she has known. She is settling in well in her foster home and getting along nicely with her fur-siblings. So far she is proving to be a sweet, smart and loving little girl with the most ADORABLE EARS! Please stay tuned for updates and consider donating towards her care by clicking the PayPal button below.

Kentucky
Rylee

Rylee is an 5 year-old, 5-pound Yorkie boy being fostered near Louisville, KY.

THANK YOU TO RYLEE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Irene and Peter Havas in memory of Buddy, Vanessa and Pepe, Holly Stavis

Update 02/04/18

Rylee (KENTUCKY) Is being fostered near Louisville, KY. He is a 6 lb., 5 yr old beautiful blonde Yorkie. He is healthy, up to date on shots and neutered. This tiny guy is shy and timid, but is super sweet and seeks out attention. He isn’t very snuggly, but will lie next to you in bed or on the couch. He will also sleep in a crate at night but prefers to be right next to his human. Rylee will need a patient and quiet family to help him adjust and trust. Although he is shy, he doesn't know a stranger and is interested in everyone that stops by, especially if they want to play with his toys. This little guy LOVES a good squeaky toy! Rylee is great with other dogs and cats too. He doesn’t initiate play with them, but is accepting and wants to be a part of the pack. He is also great on a leash and loves to go on walks. He is still working on his house training and is almost there. He wears a belly band for those 'just in case times' right now. Rylee was owner surrendered for separation anxiety, therefore, his perfect family needs to be around most of the day. Due to his size, small children in the home would not be ideal for him. Rylee has not been a good traveler and is very nervous on car rides. He has already had a lot of changes in his young life and therefore, he needs to find a loving forever home with a patient and understanding family that is experienced with timid dogs. If your family is looking for a sweet little companion like Rylee, please go to unitedyorkierescue.org and fill out an application. If you have any questions about Rylee, contact his foster Mom at hicksadopt@twc.com.

Initial Bio 12-6-2017: Welcome Rylee (KENTUCKY) 5 year old, 5 lb male being fostered near Louisville, KY. Rylee has found himself a little bit out of sorts lately. His whole world has been turned upside down when his former owner had to reluctantly surrender this sweet guy due to moving circumstances. Since he is brand new to UYR and his foster home, we are still getting to know this little gentleman. We do know that he LOVES squeaky toys! He found a brand new treasure trove of toys at Foster Mom's because his new fur siblings find those squeaky toys rather boring. He also follows his human around, but hasn't completely warmed up to being held. He does love sleeping curled up right next to his human, though. Rylee has been an only dog and although he is a complete gentleman with his new fur sisters, he's not a fan of sharing space with them and tends to avoid interaction. He also gets along with cats. Rylee is not a fan of traveling and is very anxious in the car. We do know that he is not house trained and he may have some health issues that were raised at his initial vet visit that may be contributing to this. Further tests will be performed at his dental cleaning visit. Due to Rylee's size, his perfect furever home will be one without children less than 12 years of age. If you think Rylee would be the perfect addition to your family, please fill out an application at www.unitedyorkierescue.org. For more information, please contact Foster Mom at hicksadopt@twc.com. You can make Rylee's Holiday Season a little bit brighter by assisting with his medical care. You can donate any amount on his behalf at www.unitedyorkierescue.org

Sugar

Sugar is an 7(estimated) year-old, 7-pound Yorkie girl being fostered in Elizabethtown, KY.

THANK YOU TO SUGAR'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Marciela Berner

Initial Bio:01/24/2018

Sugar has only been with foster parents for a few days, but she is an absolute doll! She is super sweet and extremely loving. She has the sweetest face with the best smile! Sugar is getting along well with her four foster siblings, even the possessive Mommy-princess pup. She loves to cuddle and snuggle. Sugar is definitely a lap puppy. She appears to be potty trained and will sleep in a crate. Sugar seems to wait until foster parents get home before she goes potty. There is a crate in foster parent’s room that Sugar seems to sleep in during the day. She is free to move about the house, but gravitates to a chair or the crate. She has what appears to be a cyst on her back and she will be going to the dogtor soon to have it assessed, potentially removed.

Kermit
Ohio
Kermit

Kermit is a sweet 8 year old, 10 pound girl (yes girl :-) who is being fostered in Cleveland, OH.

Updated Bio. 01/22/18. Meet Kermit. She is a GIRL and 8 years old. Her owner was unable to take care of her any longer do to a illness. She is getting along well with my dogs but does not get along well with big dogs. I think she will do well in a single dog home with NO small animals (birds, rabbits, etc.) She loves kids. When Kermit came to use she had no hair on her back. We have changed her food ( NUTRO LID ) and we think that might have been the issue but we are still working on making sure of the reason why all the hair loss. She is scheduled for a dental on February 12th. She has severe anxiety, so it would be great for her to go to a home where someone is home with her for the day and night. She is not 100% potty trained so we are working on that. She sleeps in bed with us for most of the night, but we do find her sometimes sleeping with our 15 year old dog all cuddled up. We will update you on her progress with the hair loss.

Initial Bio. 1/3/18. Sweet Kermit came into rescue on January 2. She has some health issues that we are trying to address. She had no hair on her back and her stomach was bloated. Her foster mom switched to a grain-free limited ingredient dog food and the bloating is gone and her hair is growing back. She saw the vet today and has been put on an antihistamine/steroid and antibiotic which hopefully will clear up her remaining skin problems. She'll have bloodwork done and once all looks good with that, we'll proceed with vaccinations. Sweet Kermit does have some anxiety issues which we hope will improve once she has settled into foster care.


To date we've spent $576.55 on Kermit's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Updated Bio 1/31/2018: Braves Scout went for his follow up at Blue Pearl and it went wonderful !!! Stitches out and his new $4,000 "bionic butt" is working perfect !!! While he will still have special needs, his surgeon, Dr. Au says this little guy will lead "his normal" life and no additional follow ups or medical care is needed. YAY !!! #bravensbionicbutt #UYR

Update 1/23/2018: Well our little Braven Scout is doing absolutely wonderful !! He is back with his foster parents and doesn’t seem to know he just had major surgery !! Doctors orders are to keep him still and to have his a cone on at all times, which seems impossible for this active little guy. His new “bottom” is working perfect and while we don't know yet what his potty challenges may be, we can't wait to see the obstacles this brave, resilient puppy will overcome. He goes back to see the surgeon at Blue Pearl for a follow up next week and will have his stitches removed at that time.

We will continue to keep you updated on this amazing little boys progress !! #bravenstrong

Update 1/12/2018 Braven Scout is home !!! He is spending the next week in his temp foster home with Doctor Laura so he can be monitored. He is doing great ! Feisty, playful and never misses a meal !!!

Update 1/11/18 Braven’s surgery on Tuesday went perfect. He didn't have much tissue to work with on the right side so they had to get creative in putting it together. He is on LOTS of pain meds right now. He stayed overnight Tuesday and Wednesday at Blue Pearl Vet Hospital where he could receive 24 hour medical supervision and he did wonderful. Eating, alert and having “normal” bowel movements!! We are so excited for this precious little boy. None of this would have been possible without all of your support !!! We will keep the updates coming.

Initial Bio 1/5/18 Look at this photo and tell me what you see? Looks like an adorable, healthy Biewer Yorkie puppy, right? Well....mostly right......Meet Braven Scout, a 12 week old, 2 pound puppy. HOW ON EARTH would a dog like THIS end up in a shelter? These puppies command an adoption fee of over $2000 when purchased from a breeder.

Here is what we know: We were contacted by a shelter to help. The shelter staff was initially called by someone who said they found this precious baby in a field and asked animal control to “come and get him.” When AC arrived he was out on the porch alone, in a cage in freezing cold weather, and no one home. So off went this scared little puppy to the shelter. The shelter staff assumed he must have a frantic owner desperately searching for him who would walk in at any moment and claim him. Nope. Didn’t happen. Christmas came and went. New Years too.

The shelter staff reached out for help and of course we said YES. Now that SHOULD be the beginning of a very happy ending for an adorable puppy and a lucky adopter but it isn’t. The reason? This sweet soul has a very serious birth defect we have just learned about. You see, when his foster Mom immediately took him in for vet care, they noticed something was very different about Scout’s anatomy. We then took him to a specialist who diagnosed him with a condition called Atresia Ani. This means his anus and possible rectum area did not develop and ultimately resulted in a fistula being formed. This is tiny opening in the body that develops because of disease, infection, or injury, and if not treated is fatal. Little Scout is being forced, with lots of pain to defecate through this tiny opening.

Not pleasant stuff to talk about and even less pleasant to have. There is surgery to “create” the anus that can save his life and he has no chance to live without it. The surgery costs $3900. It will fix his problem of not being able to go but chances are he may have some fecal incontinence afterwards. We can’t know for sure until after surgery and recovery if he will have it or how bad it will be but we have to do something soon so Braven Scout is scheduled for surgery in Nashville on Tuesday. Now all we have to do is raise $3900.....Gulp..... in 5 days.....Gulp....Right after Christmas......Gulp again. Then he will have to recover......Then we have to hope and pray that we will find a special human who can see past his imperfections and commit to loving him forever....huge Gulp.

But then UYR is in the miracle-making business. With your help, we saved over 250 precious lives in 2017. WHY NOT step out into 2018 in a BIG WAY for this sweet boy and give him a shot at a happy life? We can’t think of a reason not to either. Can you help us? Scout says pretty please with puppy breath on top and thank you.

Cutie Belle
Tennessee
Cutie Belle

Cutie Belle is an adorable 5-6 year-old (estimated), 9 pound Yorkie Mix being fostered in Ashland City, TN.

Initial Bio 2/14/2018: Meet Cutie Belle. She has not been treated like a princess deserves. Her elderly owner was taken into the hospital and she was left abanded in the home for awhile without food, water or care. The owner passed away and Cutie was discovered and ultimately surrendered to United Yorkie Rescue. Cutie Belle had long hair but was so badly matted Foster mom had to give her a trim and a bath as soon as she arrived. She visited the Vet today and Is up to date on all her shots, heartworm negative and her blood work is normal, she was previously spayed. Cutie does have a minor skin infection , probably due to the lack of care and matted hair. The Doctor has put her on an antibiotic to help clear her up and she will be available for adoption after her recheck in two weeks. Foster mom has only had her for about three days. So far she has observed that Cutie is a shy timid little lady. She is super sweet and gets along just fine with her foster doggie companions. She is a fan of dog beds and blankets . She eats well and has been using the wee wee pads in the home and going potty outside so far. Cutie Belle deserves a home to where she will be loved and spoiled and the center of attention, never to be abandoned again. Do you have room in your heart and home for this sweet girl?

To date we've spent $0 on Cutie Belle's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Ernie

Ernie is an adorable 11-year-old, 14 pound Schnorkie (Schnauzer-Yorkie mix) being fostered in Ashland City, TN.

THANK YOU TO ERNIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Jan Hobbs, Jan Hobbs

Updated Bio 1/18/2018: Ernie is a happy little boy and is excited about this new year and he is hoping to have a home and family of his own soon. Now don’t get me wrong , he loves being at foster moms house , it is way better than that bad puppy mill that he lived in for almost 10 years. He has just been at his foster home for awhile now and has watched many other foster doggies come and go , yet he hasn’t gotten to go to a new home yet. Ernie knows he has some PTSD issues but he is working on them, and has been taking his medication like a good boy to help with his anxiety. He loves being around other doggies because he is used to them and is comforted by them. He must go to a home with another dog that he can have as his companion. Humans on the other hand, scare him a bit and he stiffens when being petted till he gets used to a new person. He can’t help it , the humans at the puppy mill didn’t treat him very well. He has to learn at an older age that not all humans are bad, some are very good. If you feel like you have the love and patience to work with Ernie and another dog to be his best friend please click the link below and fill out an application for this sweet boy. After all he has been through he truly deserves a home of his own and just needs someone to give him a chance and teach him how to be loved.

Updated Bio 10/31/2017: Ernie is a 10-year-old, 12 pound schnorkie (Yorkie/ Schnauzer). Ernie lived his life in squalor and neglect. A concerned citizen called law enforcement to report suspected neglect. Soon law enforcement arrived and was stunned to find over 350 animals living in terrible conditions. A large-scale rescue operation involving the Humane Society of the United States, several animal welfare agencies, local rescues and shelters was launched. Ernie and hundreds of other animals were seized and transported to various shelters and agencies for emergency care. Covered in urine and fecal matter, infested with fleas, ticks and intestinal parasites, plagued with severe skin, eye and ear infections, and deprived of adequate food and clean water Ernie and the others began to receive the care they so desperately needed. Fortunately, many of the younger and healthier dogs were able to receive basic care and be adopted out directly. However, Ernie had severe anxiety and could not be placed up for general adoption. They reached out to united Yorkie Rescue to continue to work with Ernie and find him the perfect loving home to give him the future he deserves after what he has been through.

Foster mom originally thought that Ernie would need to be adopted with Bert, whom he was surrendered to United Yorkie Rescue with. They found comfort in one another. However, over the six months they have been in Foster Moms Home she has noticed that they have grown independent and will socialize with the other dogs in the home. Ernie needs a forever home that has love and compassion to help him continue to make progress and allow them to experience how to be a loved and cherished member of the family. Ernie still gets nervous meeting new people and riding in a car. He enjoys being in the comforts of his own home. Ernie has medication that he takes to help him cope with his fear and anxiety. He will most likely need to continue taking for life. Ernie has made tremendous progress, but is still learning how to enjoy being petted, walk well on a leash, he will go potty on wee wee pads and outside. Ernie also enjoys sleeping with Foster Mom. He does not like being crated due to the many years of living in one.

If you would like to help with the cost of his medical care United Yorkie Rescue would really appreciate it. To donate for Ernie please click the PayPal button beneath this bio. Thank you!

Updated Bio 7/23/17: Bert and Ernie have made tremendous progress this last month! When they came into rescue two months ago, both were extremely fearful of humans. The many years of living in a cage at a Puppy Mill didn't let Bert and Ernie experience how to be loved and enjoy doggie things. They would tense up when Foster mom would try to pet them or pick them up. Bath time was super scary. They were not potty trained at all and had to wear a belly bands at all times. Their Foster home has a fenced in yard and they would go outside but wouldn't come in when called with their foster doggie sisters.

Now after two months....

Bert and Ernie now will take food from foster moms hand! They relax while being petted. They use the wee wee pads and no longer have to wear belly bands all the time. They will come in from outside when called. They also enjoy sleeping with Foster mom! They do not know how to play with toys yet but do enjoy playing with each other.

Bert and Ernie are the very best of friends! They find comfort in one another. They must be adopted together. They need a forever home that has love and compassion to help them continue to make progress and allow them to experience how to be a loved and cherished members of the family. Bert has a heart murmur and will need to be on medication for the rest of his life. Both Bert and Ernie are taking medication to help ease their fear and anxiety , which has been working and helping them. After they become adopted and settle in they can be re-evaluated by their vet and see if they should remain on it for life or can be weaned off. Bert and Ernie get along well with other dogs and humans of all ages. Foster mom believes they are ready to be adopted into a loving home that has a heart to continue to work with both Bert and Ernie and love them unconditionally . Look at how much progress they have made in only two months.

Updated Bio 6/18/17: Ernie and Bert came into United Yorkie Rescue about a month ago. They were initially rescued along with about 350 animals living in terrible conditions. A large-scale rescue operation involving the Humane Society of the United States, several other animal welfare agencies, local rescues and shelters was launched. Bert and Ernie along with hundreds of other animals were transported to various shelters and agencies for emergency care. Covered in urine and fecal matter, infested with fleas, ticks and intestinal parasites, plagued with severe skin, eye and ear infections, and deprived of food and clean water. UYR was contacted about Bert and Ernie because they could not be placed up for general adoption due to their special needs and had absolutely no socialization at all. Both were extremely fearful of humans and have anxiety issues and their first instinct is to run and hide with each other in a safe corner.

Bert is a 6-year-old, 9 pound Morkie (Maltese/yorkie mix). Ernie is a 10-year-old Schnorkie (Schnauzer/yorkie mix). Both are neutered, up to date on all shots and have been microchipped. Bert and Ernie are currently taking anxiety medication to help them relax and become more involved with their foster family. Bert has a heart murmur grade 4 and is on 2 medications for this that he will need to be on for life. Foster family has been working very hard on their potty training. They have made great progress in this area, but they still need to wear belly bands due to marking. Now that they are neutered that will get better in time. Both will now take food from your hand , but still tense up when being picked up to be petted and will relax and enjoy it after a few minutes.

Bert and Ernie are VERY BONDED and will have to be adopted together. They want to be with each other at all times and are comforted by each other. It wouldn't be fair to separate them. They still aren't quite ready for adoption. They still need more time to be leash trained and snuggle and enjoy being petted and loves in more. They have begun to sleep with Foster mom this week which is a great step in the right direction to help with their trust issues.

Initial Bio 5/24/17 Look at this handsome guy! Are you “Feeling the Ern?????” We sure are! You would never suspect by looking at him but this sweetheart has had a really rough life prior to landing in rescue. Up until 2 weeks ago, Ernie (and his side kick Bert) lived his life in squalor and neglect. A concerned citizen called law enforcement to report suspected case of large scale animal neglect. Soon law enforcement arrived and was stunned to find over 350 animals living in terrible conditions. A large-scale rescue operation involving the Humane Society of the United States, several animal welfare agencies, local rescues and shelters was launched. Ernie and hundreds of other animals were seized and transported to various shelters and agencies for emergency care. Covered in urine and fecal matter, infested with fleas, ticks and intestinal parasites, plagued with severe skin, eye and ear infections, and deprived of adequate food and clean water Ernie and the others began to receive the care they so desperately needed. Fortunately, many of the younger and healthier dogs were able to receive basic care and be adopted out directly. However, Ernie is a senior fella has special needs (anemia from severe intestinal parasites, skin and mouth infections) and could not be placed up for general adoption. When UYR was contacted about accepting Ernie we could not resist his adorable face and his sad story so today Ernie landed in his foster home. Ernie has never been socialized and is understandably scared and mistrustful of humans at present. However, after only a few hours in his foster home he is already allowing limited touching and we feel that with adequate time, love, care and patience he will be a great furry companion for some lucky human out there. Ernie has no clue what housetraining is and has never walked on a leash or even had a collar or harness on until today. UYR will give Ernie all the time he needs to heal physically and emotionally before he is considered for adoption. When that day comes, Bert will need to go to a home where they have the time, patience and dedication to work with him and commit to his ongoing recovery and socialization. Right now Ernie can use all the love and support all of us can muster. Please help us provide for Bert’s medical care by going to our Looking For Love page at http://www.unitedyorkierescue.org/?page_id=2

and scroll to Tennessee where you will find Bert’s story and photos. There is a PayPal button directly beneath his story. Thank You!

Muffin Hoping Santa will Find that Special Adopter
Tennessee
Muffin

Muffin is a 9 year old, 12 pound Yorkie girl being fostered in near Clarksville, TN.

THANK YOU TO MUFFIN'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sheila Coleman, Sheila Coleman, Karry Rogers, Charlotte Robinson, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Teresa Beament, Tammy Adcock, Cheri Bowen, Ileana Letourneau, Maryanne Ware, Michael and Pennye Dambacher, Amy Schutz, Holly Stavis, Cason Rankin

Update 01/23/18

Muffin had a great day at the spa with her foster sisters. They got bathes, hair cuts, nail trims, and pretty bows in there hair Muffin was not a fan of the bows and had them out before we got home for pictures... She is such a sweet girl and is ready to find her forever home. She is doing well on her new medication and special diet. If interested in Muffin please fill our an application

Update 1/1/18

What a wild ride Muffin has had since coming into rescue! This sweet girl came to us very sick and severely underweight and her condition was very guarded. She was losing weight rapidly, and spent lots of time back and forth to the Vet trying to figure out why. After seeing a specialist Vet and undergoing lots of testing, it was discovered that Muffin has a condition called Lymphangiectasia. In a nutshell, this means that the lymph glands in Muffin’s body that line her stomach and intestinal tract are dilated (enlarged) more than normal. This causes her body to lose protein through her intestinal tract. Lymphangiectasia is a chronic and potentially serious condition that Muffin will have the rest of her life. But the GOOD NEWS is that Muffin has responded so well to her treatment that she has gained 3 pounds and turned into a very happy, playful, and happy pup that no one would ever guess has even been sick a day in her life. Because she is doing so well, we would really love for her to find a very special Forever Home of her own. You can read up about Muffin’s condition on line by copying the link below:

https://m.petmd.com/dog/conditions/endocrine/c_dg_lymphangiectasia?page=1

Now onto the GOOD STUFF! Muffin is a sweet lady who loves to lounge around with her human and have cuddle time. But she also loves to play with her favorite ball and wants her person to play throw and fetch with her. Muffin in house-trained too but because of her GI issues she will have a rare “accident” but it is not her fault and these are few and far between. She gets along well with dogs her size but she CAN BE VERY SELFISH when her toys or food are involved. Muffin also LOVES to ride in the car and will be the first out the door when it’s time to go. We feel her ideal home is one with all adults or older children only. A calm, laid back atmosphere is also a must because stress can be a trigger for her illness.

Muffin is a special needs dog and will always be one but with good Vet care, medication, special food and mostly LOTS OF LOVE we have every reason to believe she can lead a normal life. Now a beautiful pup she is such a far cry from the sick, sad little bag of bones who arrived into UYR months ago! Are you a patient adult with a heart for rescue, access to good Veterinary care and the financial means to be the HERO that Muffin is waiting for? If so, then please email her foster mom for additional information at tnyorkiemom12@gmail.com or complete an application to adopt him TODAY! And any donations towards her care would be very much appreciated! To donate visit click the PayPal button below.

Update 10/29/17 Muffin has made it to her new foster home in Tennessee! This sweet girl was turned in to United Yorkie Rescue because her owner could no longer afford her care. She was stated to have irritable bowel syndrome, managed with as needed medication and prescription diet. She was suffering from weight loss, diarrhea and lack of appetite upon arrival which prompted Rescue to have additional testing including blood work and an ultrasound. Muffin has been diagnosed with has a serious, BUT MANAGEABLE illness called PLE or Protein Losing Enteropathy. This means that excessive protein is being lost from her gastrointestinal tract. PLE is a serious and life-threatening illness BUT thanks to the continued care from her vet through the efforts of United Yorkie Rescue, Muffin has gained 5 lbs, now stabilized and her symptoms are under control. We are very excited as her continued improvement has prompted Muffin to move from Forever Ours to Adoptable!

Although Muffin is still a special needs pup, she can now be placed among the Looking For Love selection of pups in hopes that she will find a very special adopter willing to give Muffin her furever home.

No longer doomed to spend her days in a crate on the front porch of her previous home, when upon arrival to foster, she was content just to lay on the sunroom couch and watch the squirrels, she now is up and running them all over the yard and up all the trees! She loves to play ball, and chase after any of her toys that is thrown and she loves to shake it. She is a tall larger Yorkie Lady of 12 lbs and will do best in a home with a fenced in yard to play in. (She weighed 8lbs at arrival). She does well on a leash, and loves to ride! She gets along very well with her fur-siblings; she is a little picky when eating, but if you have the right mix, she’ll take her medication along with her food.

Update 6/22/17

We have a not so good update about poor Muffin. She was turned in to UYR because her owner could no longer afford her care. She was stated to have irritable bowel syndrome but was being managed with some as needed medication and prescription diet. She has had diarrhea and lack of appetite since she arrived and this week had additional testing including blood work and an ultrasound. The Vet now believes that sweet Muffin has a serious illness called PLE or Protein Losing Enteropathy. This means that excessive protein is being lost from her gastrointestinal tract. PLE is a serious and life-threatening illness, so sweet Muffin can sure use all the love and concern we can give her right now. There is a very good chance that Muffin will need to become a “Forever Ours” pup. Right now we are doing our best to stabilize her and get her symptoms under control. Muffin is such a sweet girl. No longer doomed to spend her days in a crate on the front porch she now loves to lay on the sunroom couch and watch the squirrels. She remains sweet and loving even though foster mom is always approaching her with some type of medication. She gets along with her fur-siblings; they treat her with kindness as if they know she is very sick. They let her lay in her choice of the dog beds and let her pass to the front of the line when she wants food or water. It is very sweet and humbling to watch how compassionate her pack is towards her.

As you probably guessed, all the testing needed to reach a proper diagnosis has been costly. The medication, food and on-going supportive care will add to her mounting Vet bills. If you can help us cover the cost of sweet Muffin’s care, please click the PayPal button below. Thank you so very much.

6/10/17 Muffin came to us from an elderly owner who was no longer able to care for her. Muffin just landed in her foster home so stay tuned for updates as we get to know her better. Muffin was reported to have "stomach issues" by her surrendering owner. She takes medication for stomach upset and prescription food at present but we strongly believe that there is something additional going on with Muffin because she is extremely thin and not tolerating her food well. This week, she will have a thorough medical evaluation to find out why this sweet girl is so thin and what we can do to turn that around. Please help us towards the cost of her care by clicking the PayPal button below and Thank You!

Tennessee
Sterling Luke

Sterling Luke is an adorable 3-year-old, 6 pound Yorkie being fostered near Memphis , TN.

Bio 1/30/2018

Welcome to UYR Sterling! Sterling came to United Yorkie Rescue through Nashville where he was found wondering the streets and picked up by animal control. When animal control tried to catch him he got extremely scared so they used the catch pole! Can you imagine! On this sweet little six-pound baby scared to death! We checked him into the vet’s office where he got neutered, a dental cleaning, and all of his shots up to date. Now he is slowly adjusting to life on the couch, with all the warm blankets and treats he could ever want! We estimate Sterling to be about 3 or 4 years old.

Sterling has two foster sisters whom he loves to sleep next to although he doesn’t really mind if they are around or not. He will come when he is called, knows how to sit, and sleeps all night in his kennel without making a peep! Sterling does get a little too excited when it comes to getting a treat, we are working on his manners. He is friendly with everyone although he gets a little nervous around men. However, after he spend a day or two with you, you will be his new cuddle buddy! Sterling has not been around any cats so we are unsure how he would react to them, my guess is that he wouldn’t mind them too much. If you have any questions please email his foster mom at Memphisyorkie@outlook.com

Texas
Bella TX

Bella is a sweet 5 year old, 14 pound Yorkie mix being fostered in Lancaster, TX.

Initial Bio 2/12/18: Bella came to us as an emergency case. She had developed a serious condition called pyometra. She had developed an infection and required urgent surgery to remove her uterus. Her owner was unable to afford the care and surrendered her to UYR.

Bella went immediately to our vet and had her surgery the afternoon she was surrendered. She came through the surgery but wasn't eating so she had to remain under vet care until she was stable and eating. Thankfully she is back now with her foster mom and should be ready for adoption as soon as she is healed.

Charlie
Texas
Charlie

The gorgeous Charlie is estimated to be 5-years-old and weigh 9 pounds. He is being fostered in TX.

Initial Bio. 02/05/18. My former owner was threatening to have me euthanized because he couldn't potty train me. I am a 5-year-old male. I am in good health, and I weigh around 8 pounds. UYR stepped in to help me, and I am now living with my foster family until I find my forever home and family.

The day my foster mom picked me up, it was love at first sight. We drove home for about an hour, so I couldn't help but notice this woman cried all the way home. She told me several times, she was so sorry. She said " I can't believe someone would just give you up sweet precious baby". I was scared on the ride home, I had no idea where we were going. She talked to me all the way home and kept telling me everything was going to be okay. She thought I was precious and could tell immediately that I have a beautiful spirit. As we drove home, I sat in a very fancy pet car seat she put me in so I wouldn't get hurt since I had just had surgery that day. She promised me that she would love me and help me find a loving family that would love me to pieces the way I deserve. When we got home my foster dad was waiting in the driveway to welcome me and bring me into the house to meet my fur siblings. He told me he was sorry we had to meet under those circumstances but he promised no one would hurt or be mad at me if I had an accident in the house. He told me I was very handsome and he was glad I was "home".

I was picked up as a stray back in August of 2017 and ended up with a family that cared for me but didn't love me enough to help me understand my potty manners. I just had surgery to get neutered, and I had a dental cleaning too. All is well with that.

In the short time I have been with my foster family they have learned that I am very easy going, calm and loving by nature and very friendly. The pack of Yorkie siblings I now have gave me a warm welcome. I listen, I go and do my business outside when it's time to go outside. I walk on a leash and I ride well in a car. My foster mom says I am sweet as honey and EXTREMELY handsome. My mom says I am a bundle of joy with a beautiful fan tail and gorgeous hazel eyes. I don't bark much, I sit next to you quietly, I love to sit on your lap or next to you. I am not needy, but I love belly rubs and sitting on the couch with you when you have time. Snuggling is a big one for me. I love to snuggle! I just want to be loved. I sleep in my bed or on the couch but I would love to sleep with you if you let me. No cages please. I get along with my fur siblings and we play together just fine and I love kids too. If you are looking for an extremely handsome boy and you are ready to love me forever and let me be a part of your family. I am your guy! My foster mom and dad say I won't last long. So, hurry up and put in your application to adopt me. My mom says I am a little prince and a love bug.

Duchess
Texas
Duchess

Meet the beautiful Duchess. Duchess is a lovable 11 lb. female of 8 years. She is being fostered in TX.

Initial Bio 02/01/2018. Duchess comes to UYR as an owner surrender due to medical issues with her family. Since they were no longer able to care for her, so they reached out to UYR because they wanted her to have the life she deserves. She is a very sweet little girl who has quickly adjusted from being an only dog to being in the home with several. Although she shows signs of being territorial with her person, she gets along well with all. She has been an only dog for all of her 8 years and we think she would love to continue being the center of someone’s world. She loves to cuddle, get belly rubs and sleep next to her person. We were told that she is very partial to men, and she has certainly taken to her foster dad!! Duchess goes outside to do all her business and is very good on a leash. When she first arrived, she would not accept a treat and was very shy. She came out of her shell quickly but may need some time to adjust in a new home. Duchess is current on her shots and in good health. She will have her teeth cleaned and a small bump removed from her hip in the upcoming days. We are unsure if she has been spayed so she will have a test tomorrow to determine this. Duchess is heartworm negative and has always been on preventative. She is an absolute doll baby and will be a great companion, as again, she LOVES her people. In the coming days we will update you as we get to know her better. If you are interested in learning more about Duchess please email her foster family at yorkielove0409@yahoo.com or visit her on our website at http://www.unitedyorkierescue.org/


To date we've spent $594.88 on Duchess's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $100.00 in donations.

Bio Update 01/27/18. UNITED YORKIE RESCUE and I need help and prayers for these two precious United Yorkie Rescue boys that have been in the limelight of our site recently and in the past. Next week, I have both Hank and Jasper going for major surgery.

Hank, as you may recall, was horribly abused resulting in a shattered femur and a bladder injury. We are going back into surgery due to his lameness and bladder issues. His surgery will require removing his plates and screws and repairing his ACL and patella. The surgeon is also going to do a contrast study of his bladder while is under and hopefully repair the bladder or possibly have to create a new opening so that this little boy can urinate without the struggles he is having. He was severely abused at the hands of an evil man, and this poor angel has endured so much emotional trauma, as well. Hank’s surgery will be very expensive, but this sweet baby deserves his life without pain.

These are two of the most deserving little boys in our rescue, and I am asking you to please donate, share and pray for these sweet boys. I thank you from the bottom of my heart and I know these babies if they could would thank you as well. Bless you all!

Update 11/18/17:

So much has been going on in this precious boys’ life that it’s time to update! We have reached the 8 week mark since Hank’s surgery to repair his shattered femur, and removal of stones that entered the bladder due to severe abusive trauma. We still have no use of his leg and Hank is dependent on belly bands due to constant incontinence. We have met with 2 vets and have received information about what is happening with this sweet baby and have come up with a plan for a final fix…God willing!

In repairing Hanks femur with the plate, Hank has developed a Grade 5 out 5 lameness with drawer sign and a patella luxation. We need to give his femur at least 30 more days for bone growth then go in to remove the plate and perform lateral suture of the cruciate ligament (ACL) and patella repair. We will also if necessary repair any blockage or stricture involving the ureter.

In the meantime, we will see the vet and perform some tests to analyze what is going on with this baby’s bladder so if surgery is needed, it will be performed all at once so as not to put this angel through another procedure. This could include a contrast study of the bladder, but if this particular test is necessary, it will also be done prior to his surgical repair to his leg and bladder issues AGAIN!

Emotionally, Hank is healing well I think. He no longer cries hysterically because I have left the room and I am out of sight…he whines softly lol. He is truly the most loving little man. He literally rolls his little body over and pushes his body and head into you so hard because he cannot get close enough!

I literally cry, like I’m doing now, just writing this knowing this little guy must go through this surgery again. I feel at times he must think I’m causing his pain, when this was all at the hand of a monster and all I just want for him is to be pain free and healed.

I ask you to keep him in your prayers and pray for good bone growth n these next 30 days. I also ask you to consider once again supporting him through a donation through our website www.uyr.us as once again, this surgery and testing will not be cheap, but look at this baby…he is worth every penny to fix what that monster did. Thank you all…bless you all…have an amazing Thanksgiving! Hugs~~Susan and Hank~~

Initial Bio 9/20/17:

It's so sad when the only pics I have to introduce this baby to the rescue look like this. So everyone meet Hank. Hank is an owner surrender by his mommy. After a bath by her fiance, Hank slipped and fell, and she found him holding up his leg. She thought maybe this was patella issues then over the weekend the bruising and swelling settled in. She began calling vets for pricing to get him seen but financially she just couldn't afford the cost so she reached out to rescue. We met at the ER since it was after hours for vets so we could see what we might be dealing with. Tears flowing, she said goodbye to her baby of 8yrs.

Hank was taken to the back as I filled out his paperwork. The vet came in and asked about the auto accident Hank was in...sadly what I had seen in the pictures were being realized. Hanks femur was shattered and broken, her words, "this is extreme blunt force trauma... no slip in the tub, and he may need amputation."

I collected myself, collected this poor broken baby and both he and I cried the whole hour drive home avid through the night. Rescue has an evil side. I've seen the mill babies, the abandoned ones, the sick ones, the list goes on and on, but to see evil hurts to the soul. Look at these eyes, who does this!!!???!! Why???

Thursday, we see an ortho specialist to see if we can save sweet Hank's leg. He's spending the night at Dr. Sam's so his pain can be managed along with antibiotics to fight bone infection and along with medication for his swelling and bruising. Needless to say, we are only two days in and Hanks care and his medical is going to be sooo overwhelming. Please, please give to this babies medical. He will live, God willing, but he has a long road to go and we need you and your support and love and your shares. God bless you and thank you!

Maya
Texas
Maya TX

Initial Bio 1/31/18: Hi Everyone…this is Maya. Maya is a courtesy share with United Yorkie Rescue as she is currently residing in her home until we can find the perfect furever home. Maya’s story is a sad one, but it is also one of the love of a human mother trying to protect her baby. Maya is a 10 year old Yorkie who weighs only 6lbs, and has lived with her 2 French Bulldog fur siblings. She was raised by her mommy and daddy, but an unfortunate accident happened 4 years ago that changed this baby’s life and her safety, so her mommy has reached out to us.

About 4 years ago, in the middle of the night, the family's house alarm suddenly went off. These alarms are incredibly loud. There was complete panic and turmoil with the owners and the dogs. The anxiety and upset caused Maya and one of the Frenchie fur siblings to begin fighting. Maya, being the breed of terrier, stood her ground but was no match for her Frenchie sister. Needless to say it was a bloody battle and these battles have continued despite their every effort to keep these babies separate. This family has brought in special trainers and behaviorists, they keep the dogs separated for their protection, but recently again, while in their backyard, one of the dogs jumped on a gate which separated the dogs and it bolted open and the dogs began another fight. This time Maya almost lost her eye. Luckily her injury just required stitches to the top and lower orbit. They do believe Maya is possibly the one who will charge first, but even with the behaviorist in the household, they were never able to read the signal of who was truly sending that first signal.

Maya was and is a truly loving little girl in her home and is still now. She gets along with other dogs, even the other Frenchie in the home. Sadly, the night of the alarm traumatized these babies, something was broken emotionally, and she deserves to live her life with the love she so needs. And sadly, an incident beyond all controls has changed the security and demeanor of these two dogs and Maya needs to be safe.

Maya loves family, children. She may be a good candidate to be around a male dog. If you are looking for a sweet little angel that only yearns for love, please contact yorkiefostertx@gmail.com or yorkielove0409@yahoo.com. You may also submit an application at www.uyr.us and please specify Maya.

Mikey
Texas
Mikey

Mikey is a sweet 8 year old, 7-8 pound little boy who is being fostered in Hockley, TX.

THANK YOU TO MIKEY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Suzanne Gensler

Update Bio. 01/06/18. Mikey continues to do well in his foster home. He has cataracts, and is completely blind, he sees large objects, which appear as very fuzzy objects to him. However, he gets around very well. Mikey is really starting to come around. He is now sitting beside foster mom and doing well with house training.

Update Bio. 08/22/17. Mikey is such a joy to his foster Mom and Dad. He loves to go for his walks and rides in the car. He also likes to just be beside his foster mom. He is doing very well on his house training ,but his vision is limited due to cataracts. It hasn't slowed him down at all, he and does move about the house very well.

He will require that new parents do not leave him alone as he doesn't like that and does very well on outings with foster Mom. It is best that he be the only dog in the family and only children over 14. No cats for him. Foster Mom prefers the Houston or close surrounding areas for any potential adopters.

Mikey enjoys and needs lots of love and affection.

Any questions please email Foster Mom at Coyorkie12@yahoo.com. To complete an application, just follow the link below.

Initial Bio. 07/08/17. Hi everypawdy!. Meet the precious little Mikey. Mikey comes to United Yorkie Rescue as an abandoned, little, boy who found a wonderful lady who knew exactly where he would receive the love and care he so desperately needed. as far as we know, Mikey has spent the last 3 years without the love of a family. He is estimated to be 7-8 years old and weigh approximately 8 lbs. His little eyes are showing signs of cataracts already due to poor health and nutrition. He is currently on a high protein diet to help repair some of the cloudiness and loss that has occurred, Next week, Mikey will go for another vetting to address his dental issues and to get neutered, as well. It looks as though this little one may have lived sometime in a crate as he also shows sings of tooth damage to the front teeth, as well as his canines.

As foster mom gets to know Mikey better, and he completes his vetting, an update will be provided. Int eh meantime, please keep this little guy in your thoughts and prayers. He is such a loving, little boy who deserves so much more.

You can follow Mikey's progress in the Looking for Love section of our website. as as always, if you can help with donations for his or any of our fosters in our care, we would be so appreciative. Without you all, we could not give these babies the lives they so deserve.

For any questions regarding this precious love, please contact his foster mom directly at sasavage2@gmail.com. Thank you and God bless.

Toto
Texas
Toto

Toto is an adorable 9 year old, 16 pound Yorkie mix being fostered in Frisco, TX. He is diabetic and will need an owner who is willing to adhere to his medication schedule 24x7.

THANK YOU TO TOTO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Holly Stavis, Dawn Gowen, Sandra Wendt, Ilene Rand, Judith Gobeille, Tony Heath, Angie Cagle, Carrie and Todd Tenpenny and Pam and Scott Cotterell

Update 1/11/18: Toto had his follow-up today on his surgery, glucose, and liver. His surgery was a success! He is healing nicely and has to wear the cone on his head for another two weeks, but he no longer needs to be confined. The stones turned out to be the kind that will most likely return. However the change in his urination as a result of the surgery will mean he can expel them more readily.

Toto’s diabetes management is doing well too. He’s been on 4 units and may need an additional slight adjustment to his morning and even dose but clearly removing the stones and a change in diet seem to have helped his diabetes since the insulin needed has dropped.

Toto has a good appetite and all systems of elimination are normal . He is no longer drinking excessively, has lots of energy and seems really happy. What a change from a month ago! Once he is fully healed from surgery and we have the insulin dosage finalized, he will be ready for adoption. Toto’s total vetting cost more than $5000 and we would appreciate your support in helping us cover the expenses for this sweet boy.

Update 12/22/17: Since he’s been in foster care, Toto's foster mom has noticed that he has difficult urinating. When he urinates, he takes a long time, it’s a very thin stream and then he drips for a while. A vet exam and subsequent x-rays showed several stones in the urethra and several more in the bladder. The stones do not appear to be completely blocking the penis at this point but they are definitely restricting his urination. They suspect the stones have been there for months and they also suspect the stones, which have jagged edges may have caused some cutting and scaring in the urethra. The scarring more than likely will also cause restriction in the size of the opening of the urethra and cause issues with urination even with the stones removed. The recommendation is to do surgery to remove all the stones in the urethra and the bladder. The surgery they are proposing is to be a urethrostomy which is a procedure to bypass the penile urethra and create a separate opening before the urethra from which Toto would urinate going forward. In effect he would urinate like a female. This would also aid with any future stones that are formed in the bladder because they could be more easily expelled through the new opening rather than getting stuck again in the urethra. Normally following surgery Toto would be put on a prescription food to help keep stones from forming. However that food would not work for Toto because of his diabetes. There remains the possibility that the stones could come back in the future but they would be more easily expelled. Surgery has been scheduled so Toto can be relieved of the pain he is experiencing.

Update bio. 11/27/17. Toto loves his foster home and family. But a couple of weeks ago he got really sick. HIs sugar levels were very high making him feel lethargic and nauseous. He spent the weekend in the ER on a constant insulin feed; in addition he had ketones and his liver enzymes were high. He’s now on a vitamin for his liver and we’re working to regulate his insulin dosage. During one of the re-check visits, we found he has stones. Two large ones and many pebbles in his bladder, and 7 large ones in his urethra; doctor says they have likely been there for months. He’s scheduled for surgery on Friday, Dec 29. It breaks my heart to see all this sweet boy has been through over the past few weeks. I can tell he doesn’t feel the best but hoping once the stones are removed and his insulin is regulated again he’ll be back to his happy playful self. Thank you.

Please keep Toto in your prayers for his surgery this week. And if you’d like to help us with Toto’s medical costs, it would be very much appreciated, and can be done via the button at the bottom of his profile.

Initial Bio 11/19/17: Hi, I’m Toto!! Thought I’d tell you a little about me and then my foster mom can fill in the rest! I’ve owned the same humans since I was 12 weeks old; I’m 9 now. But recent health problems caused them to ask United Yorkie Rescue to take me. My humans loved me very much and still check up on how I’m doing. I’m having a blast at my foster house and am making them laugh. Like when I race through the house sliding around the corners on the hardwood floors (usually on my way out the doggie door); or the time I discovered I that I love to play in the sprinklers and shocked my foster mom by coming in through the doggie door dripping wet; oh, and then there’s the time my foster mom tried to give me my insulin shot and stuck herself instead (did I mention that I’m diabetic?). I’ve also fallen in love while at my foster home; her name is Mitzy and she was a rescue like me! Ok, now that I’ve introduced myself I’ll turn it over to my foster mom to bring you up to speed on the rest of my story……

OMG - this little guy is sooooo sweet! And soft! Dr Buffington says Toto does have diabetes but his sugar levels are regulated through twice daily insulin shots and a healthy diet. He is so good about getting his shots and actually starts wagging his tail as soon as he sees the insulin come out of the fridge (maybe it has something to do with the extra treat he gets with each shot. Lol. Other than the diabetes Toto is very healthy. Toto has a foster sister, Sunshine, and a foster friend, Mitzy. He follows Mitzy around and give her tons of kisses. When Mitzy lays down Toto curls up next to her with his paw on her back or his head on her butt. Toto is 17 pounds, gets along well with other dogs (unsure about cats), is housetrained, neutered, microchipped, and very loving and affectionate. He has never bitten anyone but his former family said he does get nervous around smaller children that move fast or rush at him. Toto would fit best with a family without small children, where he would receive lots of love and affection, and where there would be a commitment to giving his insulin on schedule and maintaining a healthy diabetes-friendly diet. If you think you could love a sweetie like Toto, please complete an adoption application for him.


To date we've spent $5544.36 on Toto's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $715.00 in donations.

Update Bio. 02/11/18. Everyone, meet this sweet little princess, Zoey! This precious angel came to us from a small shelter in Texas. They found Zoey abandoned in the woods with her little face and body covered in burrs with eyes glued open and her mouth glued shut from the burrs. Zoey's little system was in a dangerous state with kidney, liver, thyroid issues, parasites, horrible teeth, heart worms…just to mention a few. This little angel needed prayers and lots of tender love and care to survive…and you know, that's exactly what she got! While in our care we have determined that this precious baby was a breeder dog tossed and dumped to get rid of her. She had no idea what grass was and was petrified to move on it when first introduced. Of course, now she enjoys being outside and loves to run with her fur siblings.

Today, Zoey is a gorgeous thriving little girl. She is calm and not needy at all but full of energy in the morning and evenings when she wants to play and love on you. She is a kisser. You rub her belly and she will kiss you to death! Because of her severe condition we estimate Zoey to be around 10yrs young and she is a healthy 13lbs. Zoey still ducks down when she sees your hand come near her face/head so we believe someone must have hit her frequently. When we rescue dogs in such sad shape, their bodies and teeth don't always show a true age. But as they heal, we always see a younger dog tucked away under all that abuse and neglect. The only medical need that this little girl has, is drops for her dry eyes! These are quite inexpensive and a prescription lasts about 3 months. Zoey prefers to sleep in her own bed at night, but would never mind sleeping with her furevers.

Zoey doesn't have to be the only dog, but would probably do better if she was the only dog, however, each home life is different. Zoey currently gets along with 5 other Yorkies. Zoey is house trained as long as you take her outside to do her business. However, I believe she still needs her time to find her security in her new furever home. Zoey wants nothing more than to sit by you, be close to your lap and be loved with belly rubs. Although she is being raised in a home with other Yorkies and gets along with them, she does not like to eat with the others and is fed separately. She has such a beautiful soul and is completely a different dog than she was when she first came into rescue. I know she would love to be your forever companion if you would open your heart and home to her!

If you feel you have the perfect home full of love for this angel, please contact me at olgauyrtx@gmail.com.

Update Bio. 12/11/17 Zoey has come a long way after she was found roaming the streets in Dallas. We are so proud of her for surviving the rough life of the streets without someone caring for her after she was discarded from her abuser. We believe she had many litters before they got rid of her.

If you remember, Zoey came into the rescue full of burs that covered her head and face. The burs prevented her from closing her eyes or blinking so you can imagine how much pain she was in from just dealing with the burs. Her beautiful face is much better but her little eyes continue to need drops for dry-eye but thankfully her eye infection is finally gone. The years of abuse and neglect have taken a toll on her body especially her kidneys but diet has helped her tremendously. Zoey is finally heart worm free and in good health.

Zoey would love to be your companion if she is going to be the only pet in the house. She would love to lay near you, but not on your lap. Zoey gets along with her 4 fur siblings, but we separate her from them at feeding time. Zoey would love to be the only pet in the house or maybe have one older fur sibling bigger than her and not too hyper.

Zoey gets around well but she will not be a fan of long walks, even though she loves the outdoors and is no longer afraid of grass. She is not a fast runner but she likes to try running and keeping up with her 4 fur siblings.

She will need someone who doesn't expect a whole lot from her but is still willing to keep her near. Zoey will need a sturdy ramp to get up on the couch on her own. Zoey's body is still trying to recover from living her whole life in a cage so ABSOLUTELY no cages, please.

Zoey is so sweet and enjoys kisses on her forehead, belly rubs and scratches from her human. She loves her nice and comfy bed and snores while catching her naps.

From Zoey, I love laying on the cold tile even though I have a bed which I use when I feel like it. I am still learning to play with toys since I never had any. I think toys that squeak are fun. Since I didn't have human affection, sometimes I think your hand is going to hurt me when it comes near my face, but don't worry, all I do is duck down until I realize you are trying to caress me which I enjoy. My foster family has taught me that they are loving on me not trying to hurt me. I am very loving, and give lots of kisses. I don't have a big bark, since my vocal cords were cut when I was young. I try to communicate my needs by grunting so my foster dad grunts back at me and that is how we talk. I make funny noises when I sleep which my mom and dad think are cute. I can either sleep in my bed at night but if you invite me to your bed I could sleep there too, either way is fine with me. I enjoy my morning pup-puchino while my dad makes his coffee. My foster dad thinks I am the sweetest thing and my foster mom says "Zoey, you have touched our soul". They have both promised to find a furever home for me and have also promised me I will never have another bad day in my life. I go outside in the AM and PM to do my business like my fur siblings.

I am ready to find my fur ever family so please fill out an application if you are interested or tell nice people you know about me and my story.

You can email my foster mom if you have any questions. At olgauyrtx@gmail.com

Update Bio. 08/22/17. Zoey is a senior. She eats and sleeps very well. Zoey has gained a little weight now that she has the proper food. She is shy of 13 pounds. Zoey is so sweet and enjoys kisses on her forehead. She continues to improve, but the years of abuse and neglect have taken a toll on her body, especially her kidneys. She is parasite free, but we still have to treat for heart worm.

Her blood work came back, and we are so happy she has been approved to go through her spay surgery and dental cleaning. She will be scheduled for her spay by September 1st or before.

If you remember, Zoey came into the rescue full of burs that covered her head and face. Her beautiful face is much better but her little eyes continue to need eye drops and treatment.

Zoey's needs are being addressed, but they are very costly. Please help us save this precious girl by making a donation.

Zoey would love to be your companion, but she should be to be the only pet in the house. She would love to lay near you, but not on your lap. Zoey gets along with her 4 fur siblings, but separating her at feeding time would be recommended, unless she is going to be the only pet in the house. Please understand that food was the only thing she ever had, so she is protective of it. She is fine when sharing water.

Update Bio. 07/25/17. I have had a few dogtor appointments since I last visited with you. My eye doctor says I'm doing great so she released me, but I will have a re-check in two months.,I can see now! I can even see water dripping off the fountain at my foster home. I am still taking baths with a medicated shampoo that has made my skin and fur beautiful. I take iron on a daily basis, right now, to help me with anemia, and I just finished my last dose of medication to get rid of parasites. I also get ear drops to get rid of an infection, and I am almost done with those, too. Until we get my anemia and kidney function levels up, we are holding off on getting a spay and dental...I don't think I'm going to like that surgery :(

The dogter is also doing some additional tests on my thyroid. I have some low counts but she says it could be because I was in such bad shape, so we will see!

My foster mom says I am extremely sweet and well behaved. I get along with my four fur siblings and I am no longer afraid of grass. I started playing with my fur siblings and toys. My foster family says everyday is like watching this flower bloom...They say I am just so amazing, and all I want is love now that I know I can receive it. I have also learned that my fur siblings are fun and not just friends wanting "special favors". UYR is spending a ton of money to get answers and get me well, so please, if you can, I would love it if you could help them and donate for my care. If you can't, that's fine too, but please, share my story!

Initial Bio. 06/29/17. Zoey is a sweet girl, possibly 7 years old and 10 pounds. She was a stray in the Dallas TX area who was covered in fleas and burs. The burs were all over her head and face, preventing her from shutting her eyes or blinking. Thankfully, she was taken to animal control and the shelter reached out for rescue to take her.

Zoey is flea free now, but she does have internal parasites and is also heartworm positive. She is being treated for the parasites and will begin HW treatment. She is anemic, likely from the flea bites, and she appears to have dry eyes. We need to get her a spay and dental but have to wait until her blood values look more normal. She'll be retested in another week to see if the anemia corrects with a good diet. In the meantime, she will be seen by an eye specialist to assess her eye issues. Please continue to watch this sweet girl. We hope her problems will be easy ones to remedy.


To date we've spent $2592.05 on Zoey's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1738.40 in donations.

I am so cute and I know it
Virginia
Jazzi

Sweet, little Jazzi is a tiny 3.9 pound Morkie (Maltese/Yorkie mix) Shee is only a year and 7 months old. This darling is being fostered in Richmond, VA.

Initial bio 1.27.18 ​

Meet Jazzi. This very young, very tiny little girl needs our help right away. Jazzi is only 20 months old and only 3.9 pounds. She is being fostered in Richmond, VA.

Jazzi i​s such a playful puppy and then an accident happened; being so tiny and fragile, as these little dogs are, she broke her rear left leg. Her owners were treating her for over a year with no improvement with functionality. It was determined that she needed surgery to repair it completely. Her former mom felt that the best thing for Jazzi was to have her become a United Yorkie Rescue dog. They knew that we would make sure she got her surgery, no matter what it took, because that is what we do.

Jazzi has had an initial consult with our surgeon and will be undergoing x-rays and imaging this upcoming month in order to determine the best treatment approach. She will be undergoing quite a bit of medical treatment over the next few months. It will be expensive, so again we are reaching out to our rescue angels and asking you to help us help this sweet, tiny puppy girl. We can’t do it alone. You have never let us down before, so let’s not let Jazzi down now.

Please, whatever you can give to help us help Jazzi to walk again would be so appreciated. She is so young and such a happy, loving girl and we know that you as well as United Yorkie Rescue want to give her the best life she can have. Thank you so much for all the love and care you have shown so many of our needy dogs, now it is Jazzi’s turn.

Jazzi thanks you, and of course United Yorkie Rescue can’t thank you enough. And as ever our gratitude is endless.

Initial Bio 1-25-18 Pretty, little Jazzi arrived at her foster home just a short time ago. She is such a small little girl who seems to be a little scared and timid. Jazzi will needs some lessons in socialization skills and good puppy manners.

She had her consult for her injured leg today and no decisions will be made yet. She seems to do fine with it as it is, though she doesn't use it or put it down much. Jazzi's vaccinations were updated. She is getting her badly needed grooming next week. Please check back soon on this puppy as we know more about her leg injury and what, if anything, needs to be done. New pictures coming after her grooming.


To date we've spent $353.00 on Jazzi's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $75.00 in donations.
Please donate!

West Virginia
Dahlia

Dahlia is a sweet 2 year old, 10 pound little girl being fostered in West Virginia.

Initial Bio 2/12/18: Dahlia was a pretty sick little girl when she came to us from a New York shelter. We thought she had conjunctivitis but it turns out she has a severe eye and ear infection. She was given Baytril upon coming into rescue which the vet thinks warded off a case of pyometra. She'll be closely watched and hopefully be able to have her spay done in 10 days once the infections have cleared.


To date we've spent $178.35 on Dahlia's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Dash
West Virginia
Dash WV

Dash is a sweet 8 year old, 9 pound Yorkie boy being fostered in West Virginia.

THANK YOU TO DASH'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Barbie Oates, Brittany Williams

Updated Bio. 01/19/18. Little Dash got his name because his foster mom watched all of The Thin Man movies on New Years Eve. The author of The Thin Man book is Dashiell Hammett. Dash just came into rescue, and he has been a charmer since the first moment. He's one of those rare dogs that just has a sweet soul. He is affectionate, trusting, and just wants to be cuddled. He came from a loving family that had some changes in circumstances. Mom was working two jobs with two toddlers at home. Dash was not getting the time he needed. United Yorkie Rescue assured his family that they would find Dash a home where his new family would be with him most of the time. Dash is a real looker at eight years old. He's tall but only about eight pounds. His coat is shiny and soft. Dash was raised with small children and he thoroughly enjoyed them. He immediately got along with every foster sibling. He loves car rides, is crate trained and seems to be house-trained. He can have an accident if left all day. He has perfect leash skills and always comes when he is called. He warms up to people right away. Foster mom can't say enough good about this sweet boy. Please do not inquire unless you are looking for plenty of kisses.

Dash has been evaluated by our vets and it has been determined that he has a neurological issue. Possibly deprived of oxygen at birth, he has adapted well. The neurological symptoms are not affecting his health. They have been there, unchanged, for eight years. Dash has a slight head turn, he sometimes picks up his feet in a prance, and he bows his head when nervous. He may have a slight equilibrium issue causing him to be cautious. Dash is in no way inhibited or debilitated by his condition. His prognosis is excellent. His cognitive skills are above average.

I've Been Adopted!

To date we've spent $299.65 on Dash WV's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Scout
West Virginia
Scout WV

Meet the handsome Scout! Scout is a 1 year-old, yorkie mix weighing 10 lbs. He is being fostered in WV,.

Welcome little Scout. You will be spending Christmas in your new foster home. Your shelter days are over. Scout is a one year old puppy. He's a little bit Yorkie, Poodle, Shih Tzu, and maybe Maltese. It all adds up to an adorable ten pound ball of fluff. He is just a beautiful little boy.

Scout has a sad story that could have ended his life. Little Scout has a bite history which made him unadoptable in the shelter. His paperwork stated that he bit his owner. That meant he was only able to leave the shelter with a rescue. Weeks went by and no rescue would take him. His time ran out and the shelter had given up hope. A tiny puppy was going to lose his life. Little Scout is a mix breed and to save his life, the shelter reached out to United Yorkie Rescue, hoping we could see a glimpse of a Yorkie in all that fluff, enough of a glimpse to save his life. We saw what we needed to see to save this sweet boy and give him a chance for a loving family to call his own. After some digging into his bite incident, it was found that Scout bit his owner when the owner experienced a grand mal seizure. But after a few days, Scout's foster mom feels that he may have been hit by a human.

Scout is house-trained, crate-trained, has great leash skills, and loves to ride in the car. He listens well and has great social skills. He is affectionate and loves attention. He adores toys and will play tug of war politely. We are just getting to know him as he has only been saved for a few days, just in time to spend Christmas with his loving foster family. He fit right in from the start with his fur siblings. Enjoy the longer hair in the pictures because he has some knots. He will get a grooming after the holidays.

Scout is a puppy and his new family needs to be dedicated to continuing his positive reinforcement training. We are currently working on sit, off, kisses, and easy. He is doing very well.

Scout will not be immediately available for adoption. Keep watching his updates for when he becomes available.


To date we've spent $0 on Scout WV's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Brielle
Wisconsin
Brielle

Brielle is an adorable 3 month old, 2.3 pound little Yorkie girl with a liver shunt disease called microvascular dysplasia that can be easily managed with a proper diet.

THANK YOU TO BRIELLE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Karry Rogers, Connie Peters, Mary Cronin, Erika Baldonado, Berniece Hurley, Jessica Riley, Sandy Pagnotta, Wendy Klinke, Wendy Klinke

Update Bio> 02/02/18. Brielle’s dental has been pushed back to February 21st. I was ill and wasn’t able to take her on the 31st.

She is still such a spunky little girl. She loves toys, of all kinds! She really gets into barking at them and throwing her toys around. We can’t help but chuckle when she does this!

Brielle will be 10 months old on 02/07/2018, and weighs 4.7 lbs. She is so sweet, loving and cuddly...but she also has her crazy side. And again, another dog to play with is a must. Please read Brielle’s entire bio for all the info about her.

Update Bio. 12/03/17. Brielle is 8 months old and 4 pounds of sweetness! She is so smart and so good! She lets us know whenever she needs to go outside, and since she has been back with us, has had zero accidents in the house. I can not promise this will happen in her next home, she will need to be trained according to your schedule. She will also use the potty pad if no one is around to let her out.

Brielle will need a dental because she has about 6 deciduous teeth that have not fallen out. Her appointment to have her mouth examined is Dec. 12th.

She absolutely needs a secure fenced in yard...one that she can not squeeze through or under. Brielle just loves to be outside and run. She would be out there all day, if she could.

She still needs someone who is home for a very good portion of the day...not gone for more than 2 hours, if you work outside the home.

Brielle needs a dog or two for companionship and to play with, but she does intimidated by other puppies, or very young dogs that will not leave her alone. She likes to be the one to initiate the play.

She sleeps in bed with us and our dogs, but she does very well in a doggie playpen, if needed. She should not be crated...and never had to be.

No children under 15, because of her size. Brielle has been adopted once already, and was returned to me, I am only adopting within a 2 hour drive from Sheboygan, WI. Please do not apply if you do not meet these requirements.

Update 11/3/17: Brielle has come back after recently being adopted by an older couple. I have come to realize that she definitely needs one or two playful dogs in her new home. Brielle has bonded with our 10 year old Yorkie-Pom and they are always together...this is what she will need in her new home.

Brielle will be 7 months on Nov. 7th and currently weighs 4.5 lbs which is about 3 ounces more than she should be. She needs to stay on the Prescription K/D kibble diet, but can have high quality dog treats as a reward. Brielle also needs a family where someone is home most of the day. She is house trained, but will most likely need to be retrained in her new home.

Please apply “Only” if you are experienced with puppies, and have a Yorkshire Terrier or Yorkie-mix. Also, taking Brielle to a dog trainer, or to puppy classes would be ideal.

Update 9/11/17: Brielle's spay went very smoothly. She is doing great! She now weighs 3.5 lbs. and is at her perfect weight. Because she is under 4 pounds, we are using Revolution for Flea & Tick and Heartworm preventative. She also had her last puppy vaccinations.

Update 8/31/17: Brielle's spay is scheduled for September 6th. At that time she will also have her last puppy vaccinations. She does have Microvascular Dysplasia, but has not shown any clinical signs. She is just on the Hill's K/D Prescription kibble diet...no medication is needed. She is also able to have lower protein, high quality treats. This was great news, since her food doesn't work, as a treat, when it comes to training.

Update Bio. 08/11/17. Brielle is now sporting a new hairdo...because she was so matted, she needed to be shaved down, but now you are able to see her cute petite shape. Even with losing all that hair, she has gained weight...she now weighs in at 2.6 lbs.

Brielle had her doctor appointment 08/03/17. I am still waiting on her test results, but she is doing great! Her doctor feels that she, more than likely, has Microvascular Dysplasia, and as soon as I find out, I will post an update.

Right now, I am working on commands with her. Brielle knows her name, she will come when you call her, is doing pretty good at "kennel up", and is working on sit and stay. We are also working on leash training, as well as her housetraining which is coming along nicely. She is very treat motivated.

Because of Brielle's tiny size, I am requiring that other dogs not be over 10 lbs. Also, not Children under the are of 12, and then, it will also depend on their experience with tiny dogs, and the breed. She also does best when she has someone home with her. Brielle loves to play and cuddle. She loves being outside for as long as she can, just playing with you or the other dogs.

Brielle is VERY fast! She absolutely needs a fenced in yard where she can not escape. She can fit thru small openings/spaces like a mouse, and if there is a child or another dog on the other side of your fence, she won't hesitate to get to them! Right now, this is the one time she won't come when you call her. She needs someone very dedicated and experienced.

Initial Bio 7/17/17: Brielle was dropped off at a Chicago Heights shelter July 1st and had to be immediately taken to the vet since she was limp and clearly unwell. After some blood tests and urine tests, it was discovered she has either a portosystemic liver shunt (surgery would be needed) or microvascular dysphasia (diet & medication to control). Some links are provided to help explain these conditions:

https://www.acvs.org/small-animal/portosystemic-shunts

https://www.acvs.org/small-animal/hepatic-microvascular-dysplasia

We will provide more information after the vet conducts additional tests to find out which of these Brielle does have,

She is spunky little girl and definitely a "people doggie"! She loves running around the yard, and following us wherever we go. Brielle was very matted when she arrived in rescue and will need a good grooming. I will post an updated photo after she has been to the groomers.

Her availability for adoption will depend upon whether she requires liver shunt surgery or not. She will still require a spay procedure and complete her puppy vaccinations.


To date we've spent $332.83 on Brielle's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $332.83 in donations.
