Bio Update 10/23/22: Little Miss Izzy Kate has decided to dress as WONDER WOMAN for HOWL-O-WEEN because she got a WONDER-FUL surprise at her 2-week post-op visit TODAY! She is DEFINITELY feeling her SUPER POWERS and we have wonderful news to share!

Izzys left eye surgery was almost 3 weeks ago and we are OVERJOYED to report that Izzys first surgery is 100% successful! This little girl is cranking out tears like a CHAMP! Except they arent REALLY TEARS . It is saliva from Izzys salivary glands that are working the MAGIC! Izzy is THE VERY FIRST UYR pup to EVER UNDERGO a Parotid Duct Transposition surgery so we werent 100% sure what to expect. But we took a chance and ARE WE EVER GLAD! Izzy not only looks 100% better but this surgery has absolutely TRANSFORMED HER. She now sits with paws on the windowsill watching the world go by with amazement and her adorable head tilts as if to say..LOOK AT ALL IVE BEEN MISSING! And she now plays with toys and has so much zest for her new life.

We are now halfway through Izzys journey. She still needs her right eye done as soon as they give us a date. And as often occurs, we have discovered a little extra something we didnt see coming. Izzy has what is called entropion (a curling in of her lower lids on both sides that is from all the previous scarring). This means lashes can get inside her eye and rub against it causing irritation and subsequent problems down the road. When Izzy came to us she had ZERO lashes from all of the scarring, infection, and swelling so you couldnt really see this. Now her lashes have grown back because of the healthy tissue so when we do her right eye surgery we will fix that too. The other not-so-great news is the surgeon is booked out for about a month so it looks like Izzy will be with us at least until Christmas so foster Mom and Dad will be hanging one more stocking out for Santa Paws to fill for Izzy! If youve had your eye on her and are thinking about applying to adopt her PLEASE HANG IN THERE! But never mind Christmas for now because Izzy is focused on getting ready for HOWL-O-WEEN! And she will be able TO SEE the other little ghosts and goblins this year too! Thanks to everyone who has supported her with positive thoughts, prayers, shares, and donations. Yall are 200% PAWSOME! We are halfway there..PLEASE HELP US FINISH STRONG! Love Izzy

Bio Update 9/1/2022: Izzy is a 13 year-old, 9- pound Yorkie princess being fostered in Summerfield, FL.

Hello there EVERYPAWDY! It is me, Izzyor Izzy Kate as my foster Momma calls me cuz she says Izzy..every proper southern girl should have a middle name! I am just a little Yorkie girl and I am not sure about all that but I just know that if she wants to call me Izzy Kate thats A-OK with me!

I just wanted to drop in and give all the nice HOOMANs out there in social media land who have rooted for me a PUPDATE. I have been a United Yorkie Rescue girl for 6 whole weeks as of TODAY and my life has sure changed for the GOOD. Why, I barely even recognize MYSELF! I am nothing like the frightened little waif with the infected scabbed eyes that was trembling in pain on that fateful day. That day changed EVERYTHING for me. I could not see ANYTHING. I had NO IDEA what was HAPPENING TO ME. All I know is that I said a puppy prayer and reached out my tiny paw through the darkness for help and you ALL reached BACK FOR ME! And since that day my paws (and YOUR LOVE and SUPPORT) have taken me on a most amazing journey. and it continues to this day. We started out with emergency room care, then off to our first specialist, then a second specialist. We tried 4 weeks of a specially formulated medication regimen to try to jump start my tear production and found out from the Dogtor last week that it did not work. GRRRRRR. But there are two other drugs to try that work in about 10% of fur-kids and those came in the mail this week and foster Mom has been super busy making sure I get them all an astounding 9 times a day! Shes lucky Im a good girl and dont mind getting them at all! We will try these for 4 more weeks and if there is still no improvement then I will need a special surgery where they will remove part of my salivary gland from my mouth and implant it in my eye and the saliva it makes will do the work of my missing tears. We will do one eye, recover for 2-3 weeks, then the other. Of course I wish that my problems could be quickly and magically solved with a simple wave of my paw but foster Mom tells me to be patient and says Izzy Kate. Good things come to those who wait. (Hey! I made a rhyme!) I am already so much happier, healthier, and more comfortable and I know that will only get better! My regular Vet says I am in EXCELLENT overall health and that we have no reason to doubt that my BEST DAYS lie ahead of me!

So thats whats been happening in my world! And I just want to say a SPECIAL THANK YOU TO EVERYONE! I wish I could lick each and every one of you in the face! If you have read my story, shared it, donated towards my care, said a prayer for me or my foster familyTHEN YOU ARE A PART OF MY JOURNEY AND I LOVE YOU FOR IT! Please walk with me the rest of the way.Small acts of great love will get us there!

Love, Izzy Kate

Updated Bio 8/4/2022: Izzy came to us when her former owner realized she could not give Izzy the care she needs. Izzy came to us with eyes that were in really terrible shape. Her foster Mom was so alarmed when she first saw them that she took her straight for emergency care. Since that time Izzy has been evaluated by two separate veterinary ophthalmologists. The first saw Izzy on the day of her intake when her eyes were barely visible from infection, swelling, and drainage. They placed Izzy on oral and ophthalmic antibiotics to treat her severe infection, steroids to calm the inflammation, and pain medicine to make Izzy comfortable. The news was heartbreaking. Their diagnosis was that Izzy was permanently blind and they recommended that both of Izzys eyes be removed as soon as the infection subsided. Foster mom was devastated but began Izzys recommended treatment plan and added a few additional steps which included warm moist eye compresses several times per day and the use of her own human lubricating drops on Izzy around the clock.

In only 48 hours Izzy showed significant improvement as the layers of sores and crusted drainage began to come off. On day three the whites of Izzys eyes were visible. Izzys foster Mom also noted that Izzy really seemed like she had at least partial vision. She stopped crashing into things and began following her foster Mom and fur-siblings around her new environment. Blind dogs can adapt extremely well however so there was no way to know for sure if (or how much) Izzy could see. Foster Mom had been instructed to call the specialist in a few days and schedule Izzys eye removal surgery but she just couldnt proceed with that plan if there was ANY CHANCE for Izzys eyes to be salvaged.

So instead, she made arrangements for Izzy to have a second opinion evaluation with a different veterinary ophthalmologist. So off they went for a second opinion and are we ever glad about that! Izzys eyes were much easier to see and examine at her second visit. And we got some very hopeful news..Izzy has light reflexes and at least some degree of partial light and shadow vision in BOTH EYES! Izzy was placed on two new medications designed to stimulate tear production. If these workIzzy gets to keep her eyes and should no longer be in pain. We are hoping and praying with all our might that Izzy continues on her current path of improvement and if so her condition (KCS or chronic dry eye) can be managed medically with a daily eye drop regimen and good hygiene. Izzy returns to the specialist on 8/25 for re-testing and we should have more definite answers then.

As far as Izzys general health goes her regular wellness exam went GREAT! Her heart and lungs are strong and her routine labs (including liver and kidney function) are all good! This week Izzy was spayed, had her dental cleaning, and her microchip inserted. She is now recuperating in the care of her foster Mom and Dad who are both nurses and they are giving precious Izzy all their love and attention.

Izzy is a very loving dog. She bonded almost instantly to her foster parents and the two small dogs in the home. She loves nothing more than to lay near her person or her fur-siblings and follow them around everywhere. She walks well on a leash and is a good eater. She does well in the house-training arena if taken out regularly but she is not perfect and has had some accidents. Izzy lived in a crate 14 hours a day prior to coming to us so we feel like she is doing quite well considering. Izzys perfect home would be a single story, with no water features for Izzy to accidentally fall into. While we are hopeful Izzys dry eyes can be managed medically her adopter must understand that she has sustained some degree of permanent damage and she should be treated as if she is a blind dog. An adopter with previous experience as a blind dog owner would be great but isnt an absolute requirement.

Izzy needs an owner who is home a lot and willing to make sure Izzy stays on her drop regimen without fail. The drops are not difficult to administer and Izzy gladly allows for it. The cost of her current drops are around $50 per month. Izzy wont be able to be adopted until late August if all goes well but we are currently accepting applications for her. If for some reason Izzys current treatment fails she will need surgery and that will push her adoption date back to allow for her recovery. If you feel like you might be Izzys perfect match then head on over to our website and complete an application or email Izzys foster Mom at tnyorkiemama@yahoo.com with additional questions.

The future is looking up for Izzy and she wanted to thank ALL OF YOU for the huge outpouring of love given to her!

Updated Bio 7/23/2022: Izzy comes to UYR from an owner who reached out when they realized they were unable to give Izzy the medical care and attention that she needs and deserves. It is always sad when dogs Izzy's age fall on hard times and need to be re-homed but Izzy's owner did the right thing by reaching out to ask for help so that she could have the very expensive eye care she desperately needs ASAP.

Izzy's foster mom picked her up early this morning and was very alarmed when she saw what bad condition her eyes were in. She knew if Izzy had any chance of saving her eyes or her vision she need to act quickly and that Izzy could not wait until the routine intake exam was scheduled for several days out. She called the nearest emergency clinic to have Izzy seen immediately. Within 15 minutes of pickup, Izzy and her foster mom were en route to Ocala to the University of Florida emergency clinic which is open 24/7. They took one look at Izzy's eyes and rushed her back. They soon returned only to inform her foster mom that Izzy's eyes were in very serious condition and out of the realm of what they could treat in urgent care.

They recommended that Izzy be transported to the main University of Florida Small Animal Hospital in Gainesville. So Izzy was loaded up again and she and foster mom drove 911 - Thelma & Louise - engines blazing style to Gainesville where the Veterinary Ophthalmologist on call was waiting for Izzy to arrive. After a long day, the news came back that poor Izzy was completely and permanently blind and that she had likely been blind for some time as her problem was due to untreated chronic dry eye that had now progressed to ulceration, severe infection, blindness, and that one of her eyes had actually ruptured some time ago and was now a shriveled ball of infected scar tissue.

We are very sad for Izzy because this is very painful and damaging and it could have been prevented or at least managed with proper consistent treatment but that ship has now sailed and we will meet Izzy's needs where they stand today and not look back! Izzy can live a happy, pain-free, and relatively normal life but she is going to need lots of care and will need bilateral enucleations (removal of both eyes) in the future. However, we can't schedule surgery until the infection, ulcerations, and abscesses in her lids and the soft tissue surrounding her eyes have cleared and her tissue is healthy enough to hold sutures that can heal. So Izzy is now on 3 types of antibiotics, steroids, anti-inflammatories, and pain medications.

After spending all day at the hospital, Izzy's long scary day has now calmed a bit and she is settling into her foster home, and she seems to actually be quite happy! Her pain meds have kicked in and she is engaging with her foster siblings (and their puppy friends who are visiting) and is using her sense of smell and feel to map out her new digs. So far she has been a perfect guest and wolfed down her yummy nutritious dinner and let foster mom do her warm eye compresses like a good girl. She has snuggled up in foster Moms lap and is enjoying some belly rubs and snuggle time and is starting to feel like life might just be good again!

Izzy will be returning to UF Hospital in 10 days to 2 weeks to re-evaluate how her infections are healing and if all goes well we can proceed with scheduling her much needed surgeries. Izzy also has a regular Vet appointment later next week to evaluate the rest of her general overall health with a full exam and a set of senior lab values. We did find out today that her vitals were normal and her heart and lungs sounded great so that definitely goes in the PLUS COLUMN!

Please keep those PAWS CROSSED that Izzy gets a good report and is otherwise healthy and adoptable. Weekend emergency care and specialty care comes at a premium so any donations to help Izzy are much appreciated as always!


To date we've spent $6466.12 on Izzy 's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $5807.49 in donations.

Max

Max is a sweet boy weighing 9.8 pounds. He is between 4-5 years old and is being fostered in Orlando, FL.

Dogs being fostered in Florida must be adopted within the State of Florida.

THANK YOU TO MAX'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, William Dion

Updated Bio 10/30/22: Sweet Max went to his vet visit and he had his neuter and his dental. He did amazingly well and is now ready for his furever home. Although he tolerates other small dogs, he is not a fan of bigger dogs. Ideally Max would love a home where he is the only dog. He is happy to cuddle up with foster mom and follow her around everywhere... Bathroom, laundry room, any room! A true Velcro pup.

He is fine alone for a little while but would love to have someone home most of the time. Max has been working realy hard on his potty traininig and he is doing so much better. Max will need access to a fenced backyard so that he can continue his training to reinforce what he has learned so far. This happy boy has the cutest personality! He is so easy going and playful yet easily calmed. Due to Max's size he needs to be in a home with children over 12 only.

He just wants to be loved and cuddled. If you think this cute little fellow would be a good fit for your family, please fill out an application.

Updated Bio 10/14/22: This adorable fella was found as a stray and was unclaimed. This matted, stinky mess transformed into a handsome prince after a groom. By the before picture you can tell how pretty his hair will be when it grows out. He is working on his potty training and is doing very well as long as he has access to a backyard often. He does love to explore!

Max travels very well in the car and walks well on a leash. He loves his walks! Max is a Velcro pup that loves his people more than other dogs. He's really not interested in toys. Not sure about cats and kids. He's a good eater and is highly treat motivated. He learned how to sit in about 5 minutes. Smart guy! He sleeps under his foster mom's arm but will move to the end of the bed during the night. If sleeping with his people is not an option, he would be very unhappy. Max is a funny pup with an easygoing personality. Stay tuned as we learn more and more about Max.

Initial Bio 10/10/22: Max just came to United Yorkie Rescue from a shelter where he was a stray living on the streets. We don't know much about Max yet, but he seems sweet and loving. Stay tuned as we learn more about Max in the coming days.

Rocky

Rocky is an adorable little Yorkie. He is only 5 months old and 3.1 tiny pounds. Rocky just underwent an expensive life saving liver shunt surgery. Rocky the Puppy is being fostered in Leesburg, FL.

Rocky will not be ready for adoption for several months. We are not accepting applications for him at this time.

PLEASE DONATE TO HELP ROCKY GET HIS MUCH NEEDED SURGERY

UPDATED BIO 10/27/22 Our sweet puppy Rocky had his liver shunt surgery Monday and was able to come home today (Thursday). You can see he has quite the incision. It was a big operation for such a little fellow. Not only did he have the constrictor put on the shunt so it will slowly close, he was also neutered. Unfortunately it was not a routine neuter. Rocky's testicles never dropped. One was found in his stomach, the other in his groin. Both were successfully removed.

Rocky will go back for his check-up in two weeks. He will also have his sutures removed at that time. However, the worst for him will be having to be kept quiet and calm for 4 long weeks. That is not an easy thing for an active puppy. Rocky will have to be carried up and down any steps. He won't be able to run around in the backyard, he can't play with his dog friend. He will have to be taken out with a leash to do his business and taken right back in, no playing at all for him. We promised Rocky we would do everything we could to make sure we keep him close to us whenever we could. For a puppy who loves to play and hang out with his foster mom and dad it will be a long not very happy month, but by the end of it, he will have a life that is long and healthy.

In two months Rocky will have his follow-up bile acids test. If all is good we can start the very slow transition to a regular diet rather than the prescription liver diet. His healing process will take at least 3 months before he will be able to be adopted. Rocky may not be happy right now about his circumstances. We know he is sad, but we know something else and it is better. We gave this puppy a gift of the life he was meant to have.

Rocky is so young and he deserves to have and to live a long and healthy life. United Yorkie Rescue was very pleased that we could give Rocky this expensive life saving surgery so he could have that long and healthy life.

Please donate whatever you can to help with the expenses for this sweet puppy's life saving surgery. He will be so grateful and give you lots and lots of sweet puppy kisses.

UPDATED BIO 10/6/22 Rocky the Puppy is the sweetest, most adorable, most precious, tiny little guy ever. He is only 4 months old, and weighs in at a teeny tiny 2 pounds 14 ounces. So why, you may wonder, is this tiny puppy in rescue? Sadly little Rocky has a liver shunt and needs a big, expensive, surgery operation.

Rocky came to us very sick. He was not on the proper prescription liver diet and his little body, then only 2 1/2 pounds, was failing. We took him in immediately, put him on the proper diet, gave him the required dose of lactulose, and he started to get better. His bile acids showed his liver level to be in the very high, almost off the chart, range. So on October 24th this little puppy is getting his big operation.

Rocky is such a happy boy. He loves everyone. He loves to give kisses and chew on his toys and nylar bone. When he runs around the backyard he looks like a little bouncingbunny. He tries to get the other dogs to play with him but they are just not sure about this little thing that doesn't even come up to their chest.

Rocky needs this major surgery in order to live a long and healthy life. Without the surgery his life will be cut short and he will be prone to many illnesses. United Yorkie Rescue is determined to do everything we can to make sure Rocky gets his surgery. That means we are asking you to search your hearts, reach into you pockets, and please donate whatever you can to help us pay for this tiny puppy's big, expensive life saving surgery. A surgery that will cost 2500 dollars!

You can be an angel to a little puppy and help him get this much needed surgery. Please help save a life. Rocky will be so grateful. He will thank for giving him a long and healthy life by giving you the best thing in the world-- 100 delicious puppy kisses.

Initial Bio 9/22/22 This tiny puppy just arrived at his foster home today. He will be seeing the vet very soon. Rocky may soon need an expensive Liver Shunt surgery. Please come back soon. We should know what in next for him in a day or two.


To date we've spent $2625.56 on Rocky's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $2922.99 in donations.

Tito

Tito is a sweet little fella 12-year-old Yorkie. He is 6 pounds and is being fostered in Vero Beach, Florida.

Dogs being fostered in Florida must be adopted within the State of Florida.

THANK YOU TO TITO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

THANK YOU TO TITO'S FACEBOOK DONORS!

Barbara Burgess, Santosh Pandey, Kay Williams Graves, Linda Worsham, Karry Rogers, Ginger Diane Mills, Elain Whitton Davis, Leslie Corbell

Updated Bio 11/3/22: Little 6 lb. Tito has found himself in our foster program through no fault of his own. Tito had been with the same owner for thirteen years, all of his life. He had a few health issues that needed further testing to figure out exactly what they are and how to be properly treated. Unfortunately, the owners had a disagreement on how to proceed. One wanted to find out what was wrong and one wanted to have him euthanized! Could you imagine having this sweet boy put down? United Yorkie Rescue could not, so when they reached out to us to surrender him, we said yes, and he became part of the UYR family!

He had been banished to a small bathroom where, we believe, he was emotionally shutting down. The pictures that were given to us showed extreme hair loss, and what appeared to be a bacterial infection along with a yeast infection. His vet had been treating him for allergies without much success. His foster Mom got him to our vet just as soon as she could. We had been told that he has chronic ear infections and it was thought that they has caused his deafness. Our vet told us that some ear medications can cause deafness and indeed have caused Tito to be completely deaf. He still has a double ear infection and is now on the proper antibiotic.

Our suspicions are correct and yes, Tito has a bacterial and yeast infection on his skin and is being treated for them as well. Hopefully, his hair will grow back soon. Blood work was done to determine if he could withstand the anesthesia to have a much-needed dental, and it is. Tito will lose at least one of the four teeth he has left and possibly all of them next week. It doesn't stop him from eating, we have found a food that he likes and can eat well considering the infection in his mouth, which he is being treated for as well.

The blood work also showed that Tito has slightly elevated liver enzymes. An ultrasound and ex-rays were done and everything looks normal for his age. He does have some sludge in his gallbladder but medication will help with that. In just the short time he has been here, Tito is starting to relax and trust people again. He has the run of the house and has several comfy beds strategically placed around where he can see outside, lay in a sunny spot, and watch foster Mom. Every evening he walks through the entire house. We call it his nightly perimeter check!

Tito loves to go for walks and it is surprising how far he can go. He slowly greets all of the dogs he sees and seems to be friendly with other people but does not like to be touched, and understandably so. Amazingly though, on Halloween, he loved the little ones that came trick-or-treating and had no problem letting them pet him! We did have a breakthrough recently and Tito rolled over so Foster Mom could give him a belly rub. Yay Tito! Once his infections are gone and he is more comfortable we know that he will be a confident little Yorkie.

We are already seeing some of his personality and he will definitely be a great companion. We won't know what Tito will need in a forever home yet, so check back for updates as we learn exactly what is needed to give him the comfortable and happy life that he deserves. For more information please contact his foster Mom at yorkiesrj2006@gmail.com. If you are able please donate to help with Tito's care.

Initial Bio 10/29/2022: Meet Tito who has recently joined the United Yorkie Family. Stay tuned for more information as we get him settled into his new foster home and take care of some skin issues.


To date we've spent $1856.75 on Tito's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $560 in donations.

8/14/22 Update: Kai is doing well. His two foster brothers are are about 12 pounds each & Kai is about 8 pounds but he doesn't know it. He thinks he is just as big as they are and he can get a bit bossy at times. He came from a one dog household but he has made himself right at home. He enjoys plenty of power naps & really loves treats. He is pretty spry for a 15 year old with bad back knees. I'm sure he would be happy to be the center of attention in a forever home.

7/7/22 Initial Bio: Kai is a 15 year old 8lb Yorkie. He is an owner surrender. His owner had many health issues and was no longer able to care for him. He is a funny little old man. He walks a little stiff legged as his knees seem to wobble a bit. Has that little old man walk. His favorite things seem to be eating and sleeping. He is a bit food aggressive. As long as he is kept separate there are no issues but if he finishes his food first he tries to take over the other dogs food bowls. Other than that he seems to be fine with the other dogs. He likes humans a lot. He doesnt seem to worry about squirrels or rabbits in the yard. He's a pretty calm little fellow.

Adoption Pending

To date we've spent $518.61 on Kai's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $20 in donations.

Ralphie (Ruby)

Ralphie is a 9 year old 12 pound Yorkie/Poodle Mix boy who is being fostered near Elizabethtown, KY

Ralphie is Bonded to Ruby and the MUST be adopted together

THANK YOU TO RALPHIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Kathy Riggs, Barbara Burgess

Updated Bio 9/19/2022

Ralphie has lost some much needed weight. He is much more playful. He will need a six month follow-up in November to ensure that tick-borne infection has been taken care of with medication. He is a lovable pup, but he does have a shrill bark. He is not overly fond of men. He will occasionally snap at foster-dad. Ralphie is possessive of the person he bonds with. He loves to cuddle. He does well with other dogs.

Updated Bio 7/21/22

Ralphie and Ruby are siblings. They were surrendered because of their owner needed to take care of a family member with special needs due to illness. The owner felt like these dogs need to be with a family who can give them the attention they deserve.

Ruby and Ralphie are both house trained and both love to cuddle and be with their person.

Ralphie likes to be near his foster-mom. He is protective of her space. He growls whenever the other dogs come near her. Ralphie is a sweet boy and we are working on this behavior. Ruby is a dainty, quiet, and sweet girl. Ruby underwent a dental and only lost two teeth. Unfortunately, while she was at the vet hospital, it was discovered that she had colitis. She has been on medication for the colitis and will go for a follow-up soon. Ralphie is a bit on the chubby side, and he will need to be watched to ensure that he doesn't push Ruby aside to finish her food. He is the protector. He watches out for Ruby, and won't allow her to be harmed. He does look for her when she is not around.

Ralphie lost four teeth during his dental. Ralphie currently is on medication to combat a bacterial infection from a tick bite. He is due for a follow-up to ensure the infection has disappeared. If he still has the infection, then he will need another round of medication. If you have any questions email foster mom at mrspak1990@gmail.com or you can fill out an application for them at www.uyr.us.

Updated Bio 9/19/22

Ruby is a sweetheart. She needed to gain a few pounds, which she has. Her bonded brother likes to push her out of the way to eat her food. Foster parents watch to ensure she gets enough to eat. She is a cuddle bug. She loves to snuggle and kiss. She has fallen in love with one of her foster brothers. She will follow him around and try to kiss him, much to Ralphie's chagrin. He does not like to share Ruby with another dog.

Meet Austin a sweet 12 Year old,, 6 pound Yorkie Poo being fostered in Quincy, MI.

THANK YOU TO AUSTIN'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Barbara Burgess, Angie Cagle, Lauren Satterfield

Update 10/27/22: Hi everyone! Calvin and Austin here. Boy, do we feel better! When our foster mom picked us up, we were a big mess, especially Austin. She says that poor Austin was in the second worst shape she's ever seen of all the dogs she picked up, ever. Austin's fur was so bad that you couldn't even see him! She was so surprised that there was such a tiny little dog inside all of that mess! And all those mats pulled on his skin so bad that he had open sores all over his body. His nails had grown under his feet, and were all infected, and so he couldn't hardly walk, but the nice vet worked on him, and an hour and a half later, all that nasty stuff was gone. Austin was so patient, but it didn't look fun. The pile of hair was so big when she was done, you could have made three more dogs! Whoever adopts up is going to want to keep his fur cut real short. His ears were both very clogged and infected and his eyes were also infected. Foster mom says that Austin was just one big infection. I wasn't in the best shape, either, but at least someone had trimmed me, so I only had a couple of things wrong with my skin, probably just from being dirty. Since my bath, I haven't had any other problems with my skin, and neither has Austin since they trimmed him and he had his bath. I did have a very bad infection in my anal glands that hurt real bad, but the vet took care of that and I'm feeling so much better now. We've both just finished our antibiotics and our foster mom says we are healing up nicely. We agreed that we both feel great and we love hanging out with her, and her three dogs. There is even a cat, and we like the cat, too. Actually, we just like everybody except large dogs who bark. We don't have any problem sharing a food bowl, or a water bowl with other dogs, and we are learning to use a pee pad, and we just love to love on anyone that will have us, especially me. Foster mom says I'm the snuggliest dog ever. I also pose for pictures. I watch your every move because I just want to be the bestest boy you've ever met, and if you whip out a phone, I know what to do. Also, if you call us, we come. Foster mom says we're just the nicest, bestest, sweetest boys ever. Did I mention that we are both potty trained? I guess some dogs aren't. We are used to being kenneled, but we prefer not to be and we would just love to sleep in your bed with you and sit on your lap while you watch TV. We also love to run around, but Austin has to be careful around stairs because he doesn't see that well. We are also getting these things called dentals next week. The vet isn't sure how many teeth we will have left because she says they are pretty bad, but I'm not worried about it. Dogs with no teeth do well, and we can even eat kibble, no problem. I'm excited about my mouth feeling better.

Anyway, it's nap time so I'll talk to you all later and then I'll fill you in after we have our dentals.

Love,

Calvin and Austin

10/8 Initial Bio - Austin and his son Calvin are a bonded pair being fostered in MI.

Tennessee
Diesel

Diesel is a sweet 14yr old (estimated) 8 pound Yorkie being fostered near Ashland city, TN

Out of State Applicants will be considered if it is the perfect fit for Diesel

THANK YOU TO DIESEL'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Tracy Dilmore-Cheatham County Animal Clinic in memory of Ashton Smith

Updated Bio 10/20/22

Diesel enjoys exploring the yard, loves feeding time and sitting beside his person. He likes to sleep in his own doggie bed instead of with his person. When he wants something, a lot of times he will stand up on his hind feet and wave his front legs up and down. He is easygoing and likes to try to play sometime

Diesel has cataracts in both eyes, but his left eye is blind. The Dogtor suspects he can still see shadows in his right eye but most likely he has poor night vision. He is mostly deaf but sometimes responds to sound. He is not a barker.

Since coming into Rescue Diesel has been updated on all shots, has had a dental, lost most of his teeth but he eats just fine, he has been neutered and microchipped. Diesel was surrendered because his elderly owner was unable to take care of his senior needs. He more than likely hasnt had much Vet care in his life. That being said, he has a beautiful, healthy silky coat and the only medication he takes is a joint supplement since he is an older guy. He also needs to go potty outside often and he needs to wear a belly band in the house due to him not being previously neutered he still marks. He doesn’t mind a bath, but he is not a fan of grooming.

If you have it in your heart to give this sweet senior boy a home of his very own please email foster mom at mandymsmith1@yahoo.com or fill out an application at www.uyr.us.

Initial Bio 6/14/22: Diesel has been with Foster Mom for about a week now and she is learning more about him every day. Diesel is also learning new rules and adjusting to being in a different environment. So far we know that Diesel does well with cats, other small dogs and children. He is a very happy boy who just wants to be with his people. Diesel came into rescue very skinny and matted. He has had a dental, vaccines and a grooming so far and he is feeling so much better! Foster mom is working on getting him to a healthy weight as well. He is scheduled to be neutered on the 30th of June. Diesel also has an enlarged prostate and that will be addressed as well during the neuter. Diesel has cataracts due to aging but he gets around reasonably well. Diesel wasnt house broken before Rescue and due to his age it will take awhile to get used to a routine. He still marks and will use the bathroom inside so Foster Mom has him wearing a Belly Band around the house to protect floors and furniture. Please consider giving this sweet boy a Furever Home he wont disappoint.


To date we've spent $1924.12 on Diesel 's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $275 in donations.

Hank

Hank is a sweet boy weighing 13 pounds. He is approximately 7- 8 years old and being fostered in Murfreesboro, TN.

Hank will need to be adopted no more than 200 miles from his foster home. Applications greater than 200 miles will be considered if its the right fit for Hank.

Initial Bio 11/6/22

Hank is a beautiful boy, weighing 13lbs. He is approximately 7-8 years young and is being fostered in Murfreesboro, TN. Hank will need to be adopted no more than 200 miles from his foster home. Applications greater than 200 miles will be considered if its the right fit for Hank.

Poor Hank came to us from an unsafe environment after his previous owner died unexpectedly. Hank visited the veterinarian on 11/07/2022 and received his vaccinations and a microchip. The veterinarian said that Hank has a mild/moderate tracheal collapse and bronchial inflammation. He was started on medications that are sure to help. He also has a large prostate which is causing him to have some urinary retention issues and pain in the abdomen area. This should resolve once he is neutered. The veterinarian identified some dental issues that will require dental cleaning once he has been all tuned up. Hank was negative for heartworms and other parasites, which was good news.

Hank is a loving little boy who has been getting along famously with his foster brothers and sister. He loves soft squishy toys and likes you to try to take it away from him. Hank is not potty trained, and his foster family is working with him and should improve as time goes by.

At this time Hank is not ready for adoption until he has been cleared by the veterinarian. He is scheduled to have a follow-up visit in the next couple of weeks. If you need any information, please email Hankss foster dad at jam4bama@unitedyorkierescue.org.


To date we've spent $658.83 on Hank's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Bella Stella

Meet Bella Stella, a sweet 11 year old, 14 pound little Yorkie girl being fostered in Azle, TX. Only TX residents will be considered. Bella came in with her sister, Bessie.

THANK YOU TO BELLA STELLA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Pam Roberts, Lindy Long, Carl Shea, Janet Wannamaker, David Lavine, Angie Cagle

10/15/22 Update: Bella and Bessie are still waiting on their forever homes. In the meantime, foster mom has them on good, healthy dog food from Royal Canine and one is especially for diabetic dogs like Bella Stella. Bella and Bessie are sweet as pie and just love tummy scratches. Little Bellas eyes are a little better. Her vision is low but she sees the Vet Ophthalmologist about every two months to have her eyes checked and get medicine to help her produce tears since she has dry eyes. This little senior lady loves to sit in your lap, get her head scratched and cuddle. She takes insulin to keep her diabetes managed and she is on medication for Cushings. She will have another blood draw in a month to check her drug levels for the Cushings. She and her sister Bessie check on each other periodically and remain close to each other. Even though Bella has a hard time seeing, her sister stays close and Bella knows her way around the house and yard. UYR continues to pay for her meds and vet visits so any help with her ongoing expenses would be appreciated!

08/21/22: Bella Stella along with her sister, Bessie, are doing so well. These girls are a bonded pair and must be adopted together. Bella Stella was diagnosed with Cushing's and it is being managed by medication. Cushing's is a condition that causes the adrenal glands to produce too much cortisol. She is also a diabetic and that is being managed with insulin. She must stay on a prescription diet food in order to manage her diabetes. Finally, due to her diabetes, her vision is low and she is not producing her own tears. She is seeing a veterinary ophthalmologist and being treated with a couple of eye medications. Despite it all, she is happy, loving, and loves to snuggle. She is very smart, she has learned to map the house and yard and can navigate both very well with her low vision. Bella loves her sister Bessie and likes to be in the same vicinity where she is. Bella is resilient and deserves a forever home with her sister Bessie to live out her life. With her ongoing medications, doctor visits, and prescription, UYR could use your help. If you can help financially with her care we would be very grateful. Any amount will help towards her ongoing expenses.

5/24/22 Initial Bio: Meet beautiful Bella Stella. Bella is no longer a chunky 15 pounds but is a healthy 12 pound 10 year old Yorkie spayed female. Bella came in with her sister Bessie and they must be adopted together since they are a bonded pair. These two have been together since they were puppies, but from two different litters. Bella, unfortunately, developed diabetes last year. Her prior owner had her and Bessie since they were pups but due to circumstances beyond her control, she could no longer afford the vet bills and she lovingly surrendered then to UYR where foster mom has worked with her, under the direction of the vet, to get her insulin levels stabilized and put her on a prescription diet for diabetic dogs. During that time, Bella lost several pounds and is feeling so much better. The diabetes has taken a toll on Bellas eyesight and her vision is low. She has an appointment with the veterinary ophthalmologist very soon so the vision she does have, can be preserved. Bella and Bessie are easy going girls who want to hang out with you, roam in the yard, and just be loved. Bella and Stella will need an adopter that can dedicate time and effort to Bellas medical needs. This includes insulin, prescription dog food, eye drops and any other medical needs that may arise. Bella is on a schedule that needs to be adhered to for insulin injections and feeding. Bella will be a labor of love but oh goodness, the rewards you will reap from this loving little girl will far outweigh the care she receives from you. Homes with small children is not appropriate for these senior girls. They need a calm, attentive, loving environment to live out their life with each other. If you think you have what it takes for Bella and Stella, please fill out an adoption application using the link below.


To date we've spent $3353.93 on Bella Stella's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $240 in donations.

10/15/22 Update: Our little Bessie is also doing very well. She is healthy and a talker! She wastes no time letting you know it is dinner time, and keeps an eye on her sister Bella Stella while she eats. Bessie is playful and also a cuddler. She loves belly scratches and being close to her humans. Bessie and Bella Stella must be adopted together. They are precious girls that just need someone to love on them and keep them on their diets and medication. If you are interested, please go to the link below and fill out an adoption application.

8/21/22:Bessie is an outgoing little girl. Just precious like her sister Bella Stella. Bessie has had surgery to have a mammory tumor removed and another mass on her side. Both the tumor and the mass were benign. She also had a dental and many of her teeth were removed but she is in perfect health otherwise. Bessie is a talker and will let you know when she wants something. She is loving and sweet like her sister. She loves to cuddle and be around Bella Stella. If you are interested in Bessie and Bella, please put in an application at www.uyr.us.

Initial Bio 5/30/22: Meet Bessie, a 9 year old 8 pound spayed Yorkie girl. Bessie and her sister Bella must be adopted together. Bessie is a sweetheart with lots of love to give in her senior years. She watches out for her sister Bella but loves to just sit in your lap and get lots of love. Bella is in pretty good health but she has a couple of small masses that will be removed in the next week. Bella is easy going but will let you know that she is very happy to see you when you return home. Like her sister Bella, Bessie would do well in a home with someone that works from home or is retired. A home with small children would not be appropriate for Bella and Bessie. If you think you have the perfect home for this loving pair, please go to www.uyr.us and fill out an application.

10/15/22 Update: Davey is our little 4 pound senior boy that has 9 lives like a cat. This guy was hospitalized twice and beat the odds both times to stay alive. He does have chronic kidney disease which is managed with his diet. He is a sweet boy and attaches to his humans. Davey has had many past medical expenses so if you are able to help this little guy, it is very much appreciated. Davey has fought his way back from near death twice and foster mom makes sure he stays healthy and loved. He he still hoping for his forever home! Please complete an application using the link below.

Update 8/21/22: Davey is healthy and happy. His condition is stable and he still has that fighting spirit that helped him weather through two hospitalizations where he was critical and kidney disease. He continues to stay on prescription food for his kidney disease and his history of pancreatitis. His is an older guy so his vision is low but he loves, loves to snuggle. He is continuing to live out his life with his foster mom and remains glued to her side. If you are interested in meeting this little guy, please go to the link below this bio to complete an online adoption request. Davey's health is well managed now; he continues with his regular vet checkups and prescription food. UYR would appreciate any monetary donations to help with the cost of providing his care. Thank you!

Update 3/20/22: Davey is doing great! Thanks to everyone that donated and helped with his vet bills these past months. Davey is maintaining is weight; he had a checkup last month and received a good report. He still has chronic kidney disease and foster mom monitors his fluid intake and eating habits. Davey continues to eat his prescription dog food to control his kidney disease. He is happy, healthy and a typical dog enjoying his life from the comfort of foster moms lap. Davey will continue to be monitored by the vet and stay on his special prescription diet for the reminder of his life. United Yorkie Rescue appreciates all the donations made to help this guy live out his life happy and healthy.

UPDATE November 13, 2021 We have good news and potentially bad news about Davey. Keep in mind, this boy is a fighter. The great news is that the CT Scan showed that Davey did not have a mass behind his eye but instead he has an abscess that appears to be coming from his mouth. This is good news. Once the abscess was confirmed, the hospital started Davey on IV antibiotics and hoped he might be eating by today. A call from the veterinary internist this morning was not as good. The swelling in Daveys face and around the eye has began to go down but the eye itself will not close. The vet staff are keeping his eye lubricated and the ophthalmologist is working with his team to try to save the eye. The internist needs to keep Davey in the hospital and hopes that they will see some improvement in the swelling as the day goes on. The abscess is being cultured and we hope to learn soon what type of infection he is fighting. The other good news is that Daveys fever is gone however, the vet did blood work and his sugar levels are a little low but that could be due to him not eating for several days however the vet is keeping a close eye on him. On Monday, the veterinarian team will make a decision about Daveys eye if the swelling has not subsided. They may need to take the eye out and clean out all the infection but we are in a holding pattern until then. This little guy is being kept comfortable the most important part - and receiving lots of care. Please continue to support United Yorkie Rescue. If the vet team needs to do surgery on Monday, that will be another expense for this little guy plus continued support in the hospital. As we come up on this Thanksgiving season and the spirit of giving, we would appreciate you thinking of us as we continue to help Davey fight off this infection. We appreciate all of you that have given to this guy and for your positive thoughts and continued prayers. We still need your help and ask that you consider giving to United Yorkie Rescue. Continue to send prayers and positive thoughts for this little fighter.

Updated bio 11/11/21 Davey update - We need your help again with this little guy!!!! Davey has been doing great until yesterday, November 10, 2021. Foster mom noticed he was not acting like himself and with his history of kidney disease and pancreatitis, she was not taking any chances and had him in the vet that morning. Daveys temperature was 104 and his blood work showed he had an infection somewhere but the vet was not sure where. The vet started him on an antibiotic and told Foster Mom to watch him and call if he was not better the next morning.

This morning, November 11, 2021, foster mom immediately saw that Davey had a problem with his right eye. It was protruding a bit and oozing. Foster Mom had Davey back in the vet before 9 a.m. The pressure in his right eye was very high and when the vet tried to get him into an ophthalmologist, they could not see him so the Daveys wonderful veterinarian suggested I get him in through the animal emergency. If you have never had a dog with a bulging eye, it is very, very painful. Foster Mom took Davey to the animal emergency room/hospital. The vet ophthalmologists, located at the ER hospital, were in surgery so the Emergency room vet sent Daveys records with a tech to the operating room for the ophthalmologist to look at. Ophthalmology, internal medicine, and the emergency vet all agreed that Davey needed to be hospitalized for pain control and he needed a scan to see what is going on behind the eye. His scan is scheduled for tomorrow morning.

Right now, we have incurred a $1,000 emergency room vet bill for today, and the scan will be about $2500 and this does not include the treatment once the vets figure out what is going on with this little 5 pound guy. Davey is a fighter. He fought through pancreatitis, his kidney disease is now well managed through diet and his personality is one that he does not realize he is only 5 pounds. We really need your help financially to continue to treat Davey. As long as Davey wants to fight, we are going to help him and give him every opportunity to beat whatever is going on with him. As always, we so appreciate our donors and every little bit will help. You can go to our website at www.uyr.us to make a donation for Davey. Thank you again for all your help and prayers that this little guy will continue to fight.

10/3/21: Davey is doing much better now. Davey was released from the ER on August 25, 2021 and went back to his original foster mom. The ER wanted to leave the feeding tube in Davey because he was not eating well but UYR decided not to do that and believed he would improve once he was in his foster home. Prior to foster mom picking him up, an appointment was made for Davey to see the regular vet. Davey immediately recognized foster mom when she got him from the ER. Two days later he was seeing the vet. More blood work was done and the vet suggested a liquid nutritional supplement for foster mom to syringe into Davey if he did not eat. Foster mom was also syringing water into Davey several times a day. Daveys blood work showed his kidneys were still not doing well so the vet called a canine nutritionist for a consult to determined the best diet for him since he had pancreatitis and poor kidney function. The vet told foster mom to put Davey on a hepatic food and come back in one month. Dave has been eating canned hepatic food, warmed up of course, and is drinking better but foster mom is still syringing water into him to make sure he is getting enough fluids. Davey will return to the vet in a few days for more blood work and a check up. This little guy has really fought to make it and it shows. He is running, and barking and has decided he will be the alpha even with foster moms 50lb dog. He is eating well and drinking water better but still needs to have water syringed. UYR still needs your help. UYR has spent over $6,000 on this little guy. UYR continues to pay for his vet bills, blood work, prescription food and medical necessities. We so appreciate the people who have donated to this little guy so that we could save his life. Without our wonderful donners, Davey would not have continued to enjoy his life. Davey spends a lot of time in foster moms lap, even when she is working. Davey lets foster mom know he is waiting to be picked up by barking at her. He also barks at her when he is hungry or needs to go outside. Please continue to help us help Davey by donating to UYR. Every little bit helps whether it is $10 or more if you can. Thank you for your continued support and keep checking back for more Davey updates!!!!

08/24/21: Davey is now being fed with a tube inserted into his stomach. We have recently had an ultrasound performed and have pulled some specific tests which are quite costly and have sent off for answers, We are addressing the issues pertaining to his pancreas, kidneys, GI tract and small intestine. Davey is being tube fed as he continues to refuse food and is dropping in weight. Please help if possible. UYR has quite a few medically needy babies at the moment so your donations are greatly appreciated to help any and all of our babies. Thank you and bless you all!

08/21/21: Meet sweet, sweet Davey. Davey originally came to United Yorkie Rescue in December 2018 and was adopted by a loving family in January 2019. Davey's foster mom received a tearful phone call on August 20, 2021 from Davey's family saying they were in the Emergency Room with Davey and the vet staff were currently working on him. Davey had some mild kidney issues when he was adopted but the kidney issues worsened over the past 2-1/2 years. Davey's family has gone through enormous hardship with COVID hitting. They suffered job loss and most recently loss of their home resulting in living with other family members. Davey's family said that he was barely breathing and not moving, his blood pressure was almost non-existent and the vet team was unable to draw his blood. They immediately started him on fluids as he was severely dehydrated and his kidneys were failing. While the vet team worked on him, they informed his family that he was critical and they would need to keep him. The cost to get him well was more than his family could afford so they did the most loving thing that a family can do and reached out to UYR and asked to surrender him back to us to save his life. UYR immediately went into action after the surrender and began working with the animal emergency team to save his life. Little Davey has dropped from 7 pounds to 4 pounds and his kidney function has declined over the past two years. Davey is improving a little. He is standing and perking up but will not eat and the diarrhea continues. Kidney values are improving but it's been 4 days not and we have to see if he can process foods. The emergency team will be inserting a feeding tube to get Davey the nourishment he needs and the medical bills are continuing to climb to well over $5000. Today he is thinner and very sick. We need your help to save Davey's life. Please consider donating toward his care and help us get him on the road to recovery. Use the DONATE link below this bio content and thank you as always for your help.


To date we've spent $15134 on Davey's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $5355.85 in donations.
Please donate!

Update 9/14/22: Hi everybody, its me Emma writing to tell you about the last 6 weeks. Lets see, I am 6 months old, weigh 9.8 pounds and starting to lose my baby teeth.

So my last pupdate was 7/23/22 and everything was going great. On 8/1/22 though I had another severe HOD attack. Off to the Veterinary Emergency Group I go again. Luckily FM is learning what to watch out for so she got me there before it became too severe. It was severe enough to be kept overnight (again). I got a catheter and some pain relief medication. Fortunately this time I only had to stay one night and was able to go home the next morning. They sent FM a couple of pictures during the night to let her know I was feeling a lot better. I heard FDs voice before I saw him and I sure did get excited to see him and my FM. VEG put me on another new Prednisone program with gabapentin for pain management. I was so happy to get home and sissy told me she missed sleeping next to me and that FB doesnt know or want to play tug of war with her. Boy oh boy those steroids make me feel so hungry all the time and Ive been gaining weight. Hopefully that extra weight will come off when I stop the Prednisone so keep your paws crossed. For those of you that do not know what HOD is, below is a brief article about it.

https://www.petplace.com/article/dogs/pet-health/hypertrophic-osteodystrophy-hod-in-dogs/

On August 19, I went to the Animal Diagnostic Clinic to see the Internal Medicine Dogter. UYR wanted to make sure everything was normal. They poked me with a needle and stole some blood. Then they prodded and pulled on my body parts to find out what was tender and what hurt. My blood work came back great. The Dogter changed my Prednisone program due to the past problems Ive had with HOD. We are now on a very very very slow program weaning off the Prednisone. I probably have about 4-6 weeks before I can stop taking that stuff. Hopefully this HOD stuff will go away in the next few months but just so you know there is a small small chance that I may have outbreaks the rest of my life.

Because of the Prednisone I am famished all the time. So FM has broken down my regular daily kibble amount to 3 meals and I get afternoon and nighttime snacks. I get to have about 1/4 cup of cottage cheese for my morning snack and 1/4 cup of watermelon, honeydew, cantaloupe and pineapple nighttime snack. Sometimes shell substitute a rice cake for one of those. I sure do miss my biscuits though and I get just one Variety Snap a day.

I will get my 3rd puppy booster shot on 9/16 so the only shot Ill need will my rabies vaccination. My microchip was inserted when I got my 2nd puppy booster shot. FM says I still need to get spayed so I wont ever have any puppies and maybe they might have to extract a couple of baby canine teeth cuz my big girl toofers are coming in. We just need to talk with the Dogter about when would be a good time to do those things.

So right now I am a very happy little girl. I play hard with my sissy be it tug of war with a toy, wrestling with Hannah or when we get to go outside and play chase. I try and catch grasshoppers and flies and I love to roll in the grass. We love to be outside now that the weather is cooler. FM has enjoyed watching us grow up and feel like regular puppies.

FM is hoping that in the very near future Hannah and I can officially start looking for my new family. We will need to be adopted together because we are so very very bonded with each other. If you want to you can fill out an application cuz FM prints every one and puts it in her folder.

On my next pupdate I will let everybody know what I need to have in my furever home. So please stay tuned for that. Also it would be great if you could share me with your friends and family. If you feel inclined to you can send UYR.us a donation towards my health care and that would be so pawsome as my care costs just keep going up and up. I am so grateful that UYR will go the distance for my healthcare and do anything to get and keep me healthy. You can donate via PayPal or a credit card at the link on the bottom of my page.

Puppy kisses from Emma

Pupdate 7/24/22: Whew, what a month Ive had. An emergency room visit and I had to stay 2 nights. I went home on a new Prednisone and Gabapentin program that will last for over a month. FM also learned that this HOD stuff will maybe mess with me when I get any type of vaccinations as my autoimmune system could go into overdrive when the vaccinations are introduced into my system. So getting myself UTD with those vaccinations will take a while as my Dogter will not give me a shot when Im in a HOD episode, only when I am a healthy happy puppy will she give me a shot. So I finally got my 1st DHPP shot and will need 2 more spread weeks apart and then we got to throw the Rabies vaccination in there to. I am back to my happy normal puppy self and am almost halfway through my new medicine program. I overheard FM talking to her Boss Lady about making an appointment with an Internal Medicine Dogter, what ever that is but the word Dogter was heard loud and clear. I guess they want to make sure everything internally is growing properly because of my growth spurts. I seem to react more intensely than my sister Hannah and I am wondering if it is because I am smaller. I hope FM will ask that Dogter that question.

Anyways I feel so much better these days. I am playing with my sis, sometimes torturing her cuz I think I am the boss lady here in the home. I found out I just love to roll around in the grass outside. That those things that fly in the sky that are bigger than birds and make a funny noise intrigues me. It rained some big raindrops last week and FM caught me looking up and trying to catch the raindrops when the were falling down. She laughed so hard. I love to try and bite the water that comes out of the hose too. FM said that in a couple of weeks she might take me into the pool. What is that? I only see a humongous water bowl in the back yard. My potty training is getting better. Now I mostly hit those pads shes got everywhere around the house but I still occasionally have accidents on the rugs around here. My pooping skills still need to be worked on. I almost do it on the pad but it is usually just inches away from them. I am finding out that I like cantaloupe and watermelon, they are so sweet and delicious. I eat a lot and poop a lot because of the Prednisone that I am taking. I love all toys and will steal any toy that FB and Hannah is playing with. Hannah and I usually end up playing tug of war with one toy eventually. So my life is great right now.

Foster Mom here, wed like to let everybody know that we will be holding off on adopting out Emma until she is UTD on all her vaccinations and we get this HOD figured out and under control. This may just take a few weeks, a few months or even possibly longer. We will still be taking applications so if you feel that you can give this sweet girl a beautiful furever home with the possibility of future possibly expensive vet care because of HOD, please fill one out and send it in. If you dont mind maybe you could share our post and as usual if you are able to we could always use donations towards Emmas extremely large medical care bill. Please use the link below this update to donate.

Pupdate 6/30/22:EMMA AND HANNAH (TEXAS). LOOKING FOR DONATIONS.

Emmas and Hannahs Foster Mom here updating everyone on our sweet baby girls. Today it is Hannah that is not feeling that great at all. So how should I start this one this time? As soon as Emmas pupdate was added to her biography and posted just a few days ago Emma started to feel better as each day passed. But that awful HOD decided to get ugly with Hannah once again. This is Hannahs 2nd episode with HOD since her birth and she turned 4 months old on Saturday June 25th. So far it seems that Hannahs HOD episodes are not as severe or as frequently as Emmas but still very painful for several days. Sunday 6/26/2022 started out like any other day. HOT HOT HOT outside. With the wonderful exception that Emma finally is feeling so much better that she wants to play with the toys and with her sister. Hannah ate great, played like crazy with her sister Emma and was just her typical happy self until about Noon. I noticed that her gait was just a bit different, especially with her right front leg. So I picked her up she cried and I thought to myself, please no, not that HOD again. She crashed at about 3 PM. Did not want to eat, did not want to drink, no playing, no peeing or pooping. Every time I carried her outside she whimpered in pain, it didnt matter how careful I was, if I carried her in my arms, or cradled in a soft pillow as she made the most heartbreaking cries of pain. I would set her gently on the ground and she would just not move and lie there and look at me with those incredibly sad eyes and cry. No amount of coaxing could get her to walk. Emma was still on her steroids but we were at a place that the doses were every other day cuz we were weaning her off of them. She still had 2 days of doses of the gabapentin for her pain,,, so we borrowed a couple of Emmas steroid tablets, added Tramadol and Gabapentin and gave Hannah these meds at bedtime. I knew that in the morning both Susan, my Team Leader and myself would be calling CHEW Animal Clinic in the morning to request more Steroids and Tramadol as we had plenty of the liquid Gabapentin on hand. Both dogs gave me some ugly I dont like this stuff faces whenever I gave them the liquid Gabapentin. So I decided to taste test it and sure enough I even made an ugly face too and am so grateful that my Gabapentin comes in capsule form for us hoomans. During the night her whimpers became loud cries of pain and I became very worried for her. I called CHEW Animal Clinic first thing the next morning. Dr. Leigh and her staff were wonderful once again during yet another emergency for these 2 UYR babies. So Dr Leigh decided that Hannah needed to start a new steroid treatment. Plus her Gabapentin was changed to 3 times a day instead of 2 and they added Tramadol at 2-3 times a day depending on how much pain we thought Hannah was feeling. My husband John offered to drive to Dallas and pick up all the medications. (I am so lucky and grateful to have him as my partner in crime with my fosters and UYR.) All I could do was watch over Hannah and once again I just felt so helpless that I could not take her pain away. Any movement caused her excruciating pain and her cries told me so. I decided to put a soft pillow in a crate and Hannah gently on top the pillow. The Aero bed was still there from Emmas episode so now I could sleep by Hannah and could monitor her cries. It was a terrible night, neither one of us got any sleep. Emma and my own pups all slept near Hannah to watch over her. The next day, June 28th and this day also wasnt any better at all for Hannah or myself. Boy oh boy, did Emma feel so much better and just wanted to play play play with her sister. I was making sure Hannah stayed hydrated by giving her liquids via a syringe but there were only a few times that was needed. as she wanted to drink from her water bowl. Hannah seemed to enjoy her Rice and chicken mush every night and drank most of her special water from her bowl. The steroids, Tramadol and Gabapentin seem to be kicking in as Hannah was not crying as much or as loudly as in the past 2 days. So right now its 8 PM on the 29th shes lying down right next to me looking at me every once in a while with her beautiful sad puppy girl eyes as I try and distract Emma from the play mode. I am sure tomorrow will be a more pain free day for her. I hope shell be able to sleep comfortably tonight and not cry in pain occasionally . One great thing that happened during this entire episode was that I got so many Hannah kisses and lots of tail wags so I am so grateful and happy that Hannahs episode with HOD was not quite as severe as Emmas was. Please keep good thoughts for our sweet Hannah and little Emmas in your hearts and mind. If you are able to they both would appreciate and love any donations towards their health care, every donation is a blessing from all of you wonderful followers. All you have to do it hit the donate button to help Hannah, Emma and United Yorkie Rescue out.

6/23/2022 Update: Emma's Foster Mom here updating everyone on sweet baby girl Emma as she's not feeling that great today. So how should I start this? No sooner than Emma wrote her recent pupdate that was posted just a couple of days ago did HOD reared its ugly head up once again. I believe this is her 5th episode with HOD since her birth and shell be only 4 months old on Saturday June 25th. 6/21/2022 started out like any other day. Emma ate great, played like crazy with her sister Hannah and was just her typical happy self until about 4 PM. I noticed that her gait was just a bit different and when I picked her up she cried and I thought to myself, please no, not that HOD again. She crashed at about 8 PM. Did not want to eat, did not want to drink, no playing, no peeing or pooping. Every time I carried her outside she whimpered in pain, it didn't matter how careful I was, if I carried her in my arms, or cradled in a soft towel, she made the most heartbreaking cries. I would set her gently on the ground and she would just plop down and lie there and look at me with those incredibly sad eyes and cry. Emma was still on her steroids but we were at a place that the doses were every other day cuz we were weaning her off of them. She still had 2 days of doses of the gabapentin for her pain. During the night her whimpers became loud cries of pain and I became very worried for her. We got her in quickly to our wonderful CHEW Animal Clinic first thing the next morning. Dr. Leigh and her staff were wonderful and waiting for us. Emmas sister Hannah came with us so we could start her puppy shots and Hannah was just her normal happy self but you could see that she was watching over her sister. Dr. Leigh decided that it was HOD getting ugly with our little girl, they did a few tests and observed her for about 6 hours and her cries became louder. She was running a high fever also. Dr. Leigh

decided that Emma needed to start a new steroid treatment sequence again but her dosage was doubled from before. Her Gabapentin was changed to 3 times a day instead of 2. We got home and all I could do was watch over her. Any movement caused her excruciating pain and her cries told me so. I decided to put a soft pillow in a crate and her gently on top of it. I blew up an Aero bed so I could sleep by her so I could monitor her cries. It was a terrible night, neither one of us got any sleep. Hannah and my own pups all slept near her to watch over her. The next day June 22nd wasnt any better at all. I was making sure she stayed hydrated by giving her liquids via a syringe. The steroids haven't totally kicked in and there were those painful cries all day long. She did not change her position at any time unless I was holding her head so I could give her some liquid nourishment. Once again a very restless night of little sleep happened. So now its the 23rd, she's drinking a little on her own, still not wanting any food. She took a few steps to get to her special water bowl, relieved herself on the area rug to which I was so elated and happy that she tinkled. Then she lied in one position almost all day. The steroids and Gabapentin seem to be kicking in as Emma is not crying as much or as loudly as the past 2 days. So right now its 4 PM on the 23rd, shes lying down right next to me looking at me every once in a while with her beautiful sad puppy girl eyes. I am hoping tomorrow will be a more pain free day for her. I hope shell be able to sleep comfortably tonight and not cry in pain every 30 minutes. I hope that she will want a little bit of food. One good thing that happened today was that I got a few Emma kisses and several tail wags that I havent been seen for a couple of days so I am hoping and wishing things will look a little brighter tomorrow.

Please keep good thoughts for sweet Emma in your hearts and mind. If you are able to she would appreciate any donations towards her health care, every single dollar helps.

Pupdate 6/19/22: I am Emma and I would love to tell you a little about myself so here goes.

Whew, well I got so much better with the medications that the dogters gave me that the awesome Team Leader that picked me up and took me to the Emergency Vet in the middle of the night felt comfortable enough to let me go to my foster home. So here I am at Stickhorse Ranch and I've been here for a whole week with my sister Hannah. I have been acting like your typical almost 4 month puppy and I weigh 4 pounds and I have those sharp puppy teeth. My Birthday is February 25, 2022. Foster Mom occasionally catches me trying to steal and chew on her flip flops, the top of the plastic ramp (I am an excellent ramp climber upper to get on the couch or bed and I climb down really good too) and other stuff but she just tells me no and redirects me to something else to chew or play with. My favorite things right now is to play with my sister, steal my 2 foster brothers food, chewing on things, sleep and did I mention play? Sometimes I start it and sometimes Hannah starts it. We play pretty hard too. I love to be in the fenced in backyard so we can roll around in the grass and we do lots of playing there too. I am just starting to learn how to walk on the leash and I am not liking it one bit plus that concrete or asphalt gets really hot now that it is summer time and it can burn my cute little paw pads really quickly.

I will be going to the Dogter on June 24th to get my first set of shots and FM decided to do the shots that I need in 2 visits cuz I am still so young and small. I will also get more X-rays to see if there have been any changes in the growth of my bones due to HOD. I am hoping I wont have another bone growth episode because it might involve an emergency care visit and IVs and stuff cuz it just hurts, hurts so much that I don't even want to eat, drink, stand up, walk or even pee and poop. It is very serious when it does happen. I just want to lie there and cry in pain and I sure don't want to make my new FM to hear me cry because she will feel so helpless that she can not take my pain away. If you do not know about HOD there are so many articles that will help you learn about it on the world wide web. So I am hoping that my last episode on June 6th was just that,,, my last episode. But we will not know until the growth spurts start again. The HOD stuff is supposed to stop when I become full grown so I have got many more months and a couple more growth spurts to go to before I am fully grown. I am learning about potty training and those pee pee pads. I thought that it was a toy the first time I saw it and took off with it with my sister to play with it. Now I am learning to do my pee pee business on it. Im pretty good about the pee pee part now but I like to leave my poops in secret places that FM will find. Shell put a pee pee pad there but Ill just find a new spot to poop at. I sure keep her on her toes.

So lets get down to business of what Id like to have in my new home and with my new family. My adoption fee will be $1000.00. It would be really nice if you are a work from home person or retired. I am so young that if your are away for too long I might begin to feel really sad. I need a fur friend to play with, preferably about my size and kinda young. I don't think a senior fur friend will work cuz I have so much energy that I might make them upset when I will not stop trying to play with them. I am not crate trained and I don't like them. I love the doggie pen that sissy and I sleep in at night though. I need a fenced back yard and grass to play on and lots of toys. I love all toys. No children under 13 please. Parent(s) that will continue to teach me all the great things that will make me a perfect pupper. Lots of good food, I LOVE food. So far I eat lots of good quality kibble but FM has given me strawberries and cantaloupe, green beans and carrots, all those good healthy fruits and vegetables are yummy.

I will need to get spayed at the age of about 6 months. FM says that you will need to sign a waiver promising that you will have me spayed. I am not allowed to even have one litter of puppies so if that is what you have in mind for me please do not submit an application. She will also want to get a confirmation from your vet to know that I have been spayed. There are way too many puppies in our world and I don't want or need to add more burden to the problem we already have these days. You also need to be aware of that HOD thing so please get educated on HOD so you know what you might see in the future until I am all grown up. Please be aware that if it flairs up it can become expensive to treat but we are hoping that is all behind me.

So if you believe that I am the sweet baby girl puppy that you can love fur furever and have all those things I want and need please go to the bottom of this page and put in your application. FM looks at all the applications that come in for me and does home checks, vet reference checks, she might even call your people references as she wants the very best fur furever home for me. She does not go by when you put your application in. She goes by the very best application out of all of the ones that are submitted and she does her best to touch base with every person that submits an application.

Update 6/9/22: What a journey these angel babies have had. But after all of our efforts to get an answer as to why these babies were so painful, could not stand, were running fevers of 105...we got an answer. The radiologist asked us to take more x-rays of their long bones and there it was! Hannah and Emma have a very very very rare condition called HOD. This is seen quite often in German Shepherds, Weimaraners etc. Here is a description of the condition:

Metaphyseal osteopathy, previously termed hypertrophic osteodystrophy (HOD), is a disease of young (usually 3 to 6 months of age), growing dogs of the large and giant breeds (NOT usually seen at all in these small babies) that results in severe pain that is localized to the metaphysis of the long bones. Treatment is only supportive for hypertrophic osteodystrophy. When a puppy goes through an acute stage of the disease and fever is present, intravenous fluids are usually required to keep the baby hydrated and feeding tubes are used to give nutrition. Pain is controlled through narcotics and anti-inflammatories. Antibiotics are given sometimes to help in case there is a bacteria present. But as in all cases, you just have to wait until the crisis is over. Monthly exams and x-rays for each visit to recheck their affected bones are required until the HOD has subsided.

So Hannah and Emma were both up and standing after a week when I entered the ER last night! I went over and was given a flurry of kisses!! I was able to take them home last night as well. They are very responsive to steroids and pain medication which we are delighted to see. They will be closely monitored as the pattern seems to be every 3rd week according to the surrendering owner. Our hopes are that the steroids will keep the symptoms at bay so please send these precious little girls many prayers. As you know the critical care they received was so extremely high to the tune of over $8000. Without you and your love for our babies we would be able to make their lives matter...but they do. If you are able to donate please donate here on FB or go to our website at www.uyr.us, and use the donate button on the home page or under their respective bios on Looking for Love tab... and share this please!! The story of these two babies, Emma and Hannah, may touch the hearts of others that can also give.

Also know that, we will take applications for these babies once they are out of the woods. If you feel you will have the best home to offer them, please complete an online application.

Thank you, bless you and keep the prayers coming for these adorable angels~

Initial Bio 6/6/22: UYR's West Region team leader was called at 2:30am Monday morning. Two puppies were crying out in pain and the owner didn't know what to do anymore. We told her to get the babies to Veterinary Emergency Group and we would be there to take over.

So Meet Emma and Hannah. Two tiny little 3.5 month old puppies weighing in at 3lbs. Emma has been going to the ER since she was 3 weeks of age. She runs a fever, she develops a limp, then she becomes lethargic and won't stand. She also cannot move her bowels. After a few days she is able to potty then she's normal for 3 weeks more. Recently little Hannah is showing the same signs. Both babies' bloodwork looks fairly unremarkable. Their glucose is a little low, potassium a little low and their white blood cell counts indicate an infection of unknown cause. Both are now painful and crying out... it's so pitiful to see and hear!! Both do not want to stand, their tummies are gurgling and they just look at me with those eyes asking me to fix this. So fixing this, We will!! We have done bloodwork, x-rays, Parvo testing, fluids, glucose, the list goes on and on. And now we are on our way to the specialty group. We are in the process of moving them out of the ER to a specialty group with Internal Medicine. We once again have to go through the ER at the second center, as Internal Medicine is sooo crazy busy. Please help us, please please pray for these adorable little girls. We have really had our hands full with very very ill babies. We have spent about 3k for each girl at VEG, and we have more to go! Please use the link below to donate to help offset these expenses. We will keep you all posted on these babies and we pray we have an answer by tonight. Please share this so others may be able to help as well. Thank you all, bless you!

9/14/22 Pupdate: Hey hey hey UYR family and friends. Its time for a pupdate to let everybody know how I am doing. So lets see what has happened since my last pupdate.

I am now 6 months old and weigh about 11 pounds. I am a very happy girl and very much bonded with my little sister Emma. We play, eat, sleep, torture our FB together. FM has a lot and I mean a lot of toys here, toys that squeak, toys that crinkle and toys that do both, large toys and small toys but I like the small ones the best. Emma is always trying to steal it away from me and I just will not let go. So FM sees us playing with a stuff squeaky toy thats only about 5 inches long with Emma on one end and me on the other and she laughs so hard watching us play. I will not let Emma do anything on her own cuz I have to be right by her side. Sis and I wrestle a lot too and I like to chase and chew on my tail.

So lets talk about this HOD business I have been dealing with. This is a great article about HOD in case this is the first time you have ever heard of it.

https://www.petplace.com/article/dogs/pet-health/hypertrophic-osteodystrophy-hod-in-dogs/

Since my last visit with my regular Veterinarian I stayed with the Prednisone program they outlined for me. It seems to be working as in August and so far in September I did not have a severe attack that would send me to Emergency Veterinary Care. So FM is so happy I havent cried out in pain and was just a normal crazy puppy. On August 19, Sis and I went to go see an Internal Medicine Dogter. We got poked and prodded. They drew blood and checked that for several things. Everything looked normal. They were so surprised that we were diagnosed with HOD as it is very very rare for us little ones to get it. The Dogter revised my Prednisone program so I get weaned off of it very slowly. So I am about 3 weeks away from being all finished with that stuff which FM will be so happy with. Because of the Prednisone I feel so hungry all the time and FM loves rubbing my potbelly. So she breaks down my daily kibble to 3 meals. I get cottage cheese for a afternoon snack and then I get watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew and pineapple as a night time snack. Sometimes she will give me a rice cake in lieu of one of those. I think shes just trying to keep us feeling full and she thinks it is working. HOD will eventually leave my body as I become fully grown but there is a small chance I could have it for the rest of my life.

I am now UTD with all my vaccinations and only need to get spayed in the near future and possibly need to get some baby canine teeth pulled. Right now I have 8 of them and all of them are sharp sharp sharp. FM is still hoping the baby ones will fall out on their own.

On our next pupdate I will let everybody know what I need to have in my furever home. So please stay tuned for that. Also it would be great if you could share me with your friends and family. If you feel inclined to send us a donation towards my health care that would be pawsome as my care costs just keep going up and up. I am so grateful that UYR will go the distance for my healthcare and do anything to get and keep me healthy. You can donate via PayPal or a credit card at the link on the bottom of my page.

Puppy kisses from Hannah

7/24/22 Update: Wow, what a crazy month for me and FM. If I wasnt in a HOD episode my sister Emma was. I think there was maybe 5 days in the last 30 days that Emma and I both felt great together at the same time,,,then about on July 17th we both felt great together once again. So we are almost back to being 100% puppies, testing our boundaries, still trying to steal FMs flip flops and socks and the most fun is attacking her in the morning with our puppy kisses just so happy and ready to start a new pain free day. FM also learned that this HOD stuff will maybe mess with me when I get any type of vaccination as my autoimmune system could go into overdrive when the vaccinations are introduced into my system. So getting myself UTD with those vaccinations will take a while as my Dogter will not give me a shot when Im in the middle of a HOD episode, only when I am a healthy happy puppy will she give me a shot. I finally got my 2nd DHPP shot and my microchip about 2 weeks ago and my autoimmune system did react but it was pretty mild this time and I got over it fairly quickly and I. Just a few days. I also got my Rabies vaccination this past Friday so FM is watching me very closely in case my growth spurt HOD reappears. I think I only need one more DHPP booster. I am back to my happy normal puppy self and do have a prednisone and Gabapentin program in place due to the rabies vaccination. I overheard FM talking to her Boss Lady about making an appointment with an Internal Medicine Dogter, what ever that is but the word Dogter was heard loud and clear. I guess they want to make sure everything internally is growing properly because of my growth spurts. We wont get to see them until August 19th. tho. I dont seem to react as intensely to HOD as my sister Emma does and I am wondering if it is because I am bigger in size. I hope FM will ask the Dogter that question. Anyways I feel so much better these days. I am playing with my sis, sometimes torturing her cuz I think I am the head honcho here (Emma thinks she is the boss lady- HA HA) and FM just giggles at our playful antics here in the home. I love to explore the back yard and follow my FBs around. That those things that fly in the sky that are bigger than birds and make a funny noise intrigues me. I tried chasing one but I couldnt catch it. It rained some big raindrops last week and FM caught me running for the back door as I do not like to get wet. I dont seem to like rain but I love to try chase the water that comes out of the hose. FM said that in a couple of weeks she might take me into the pool. What is a pool? I only see a really really big water bowl in the middle of the back yard. My potty training is getting better. Now I mostly pee on those pads shes got everywhere around the house but I still occasionally have an accident on the rugs. My pooping outside skills are getting really good and Im learning to go to the door or just walking around in frantic circles in front of FM and shell let me out. She always does go outside with us cuz of all the other wild critters out here where we live. I am finding out that I like cantaloupe and watermelon, they are so sweet and delicious. Broccoli gives me gas and stinky after effects. I eat a lot and poop a lot because of the Prednisone when I am taking it. I love all toys and will steal any toy that FB and Emma are playing with. Emma and I usually end up playing tug of war with one toy eventually. So my life is really fabulous right now. Heres hoping for a great month ahead.

Foster Mom here, we would like to let everybody know that we will be holding off on adopting out Hannah until she is UTD on all her vaccinations and we get this HOD figured out and under control. This may just take a few weeks, a few months or even possibly longer. We will still be taking applications so if you feel that you can give this sweet girl a beautiful furever home with the possibility of future expensive vet care because of HOD, please fill an application out and send it in. If you dont mind maybe you could share our post and as usual if you are able to we could always use donations towards Hannahs growing medical care bill. Please use the link below this update.

Pupdate 6/30/22: EMMA AND HANNAH (TEXAS). LOOKING FOR DONATIONS.

Emmas and Hannahs Foster Mom here updating everyone on our sweet baby girls. Today it is Hannah that is not feeling that great at all. So how should I start this one this time? As soon as Emmas pupdate was added to her biography and posted just a few days ago Emma started to feel better as each day passed. But that awful HOD decided to get ugly with Hannah once again. This is Hannahs 2nd episode with HOD since her birth and she turned 4 months old on Saturday June 25th. So far it seems that Hannahs HOD episodes are not as severe or as frequently as Emmas but still very painful for several days. Sunday 6/26/2022 started out like any other day. HOT HOT HOT outside. With the wonderful exception that Emma finally is feeling so much better that she wants to play with the toys and with her sister. Hannah ate great, played like crazy with her sister Emma and was just her typical happy self until about Noon. I noticed that her gait was just a bit different, especially with her right front leg. So I picked her up she cried and I thought to myself, please no, not that HOD again. She crashed at about 3 PM. Did not want to eat, did not want to drink, no playing, no peeing or pooping. Every time I carried her outside she whimpered in pain, it didnt matter how careful I was, if I carried her in my arms, or cradled in a soft pillow as she made the most heartbreaking cries of pain. I would set her gently on the ground and she would just not move and lie there and look at me with those incredibly sad eyes and cry. No amount of coaxing could get her to walk. Emma was still on her steroids but we were at a place that the doses were every other day cuz we were weaning her off of them. She still had 2 days of doses of the gabapentin for her pain,,, so we borrowed a couple of Emmas steroid tablets, added Tramadol and Gabapentin and gave Hannah these meds at bedtime. I knew that in the morning both Susan, my Team Leader and myself would be calling CHEW Animal Clinic in the morning to request more Steroids and Tramadol as we had plenty of the liquid Gabapentin on hand. Both dogs gave me some ugly I dont like this stuff faces whenever I gave them the liquid Gabapentin. So I decided to taste test it and sure enough I even made an ugly face too and am so grateful that my Gabapentin comes in capsule form for us hoomans. During the night her whimpers became loud cries of pain and I became very worried for her. I called CHEW Animal Clinic first thing the next morning. Dr. Leigh and her staff were wonderful once again during yet another emergency for these 2 UYR babies. So Dr Leigh decided that Hannah needed to start a new steroid treatment. Plus her Gabapentin was changed to 3 times a day instead of 2 and they added Tramadol at 2-3 times a day depending on how much pain we thought Hannah was feeling. My husband John offered to drive to Dallas and pick up all the medications. (I am so lucky and grateful to have him as my partner in crime with my fosters and UYR.) All I could do was watch over Hannah and once again I just felt so helpless that I could not take her pain away. Any movement caused her excruciating pain and her cries told me so. I decided to put a soft pillow in a crate and Hannah gently on top the pillow. The Aero bed was still there from Emmas episode so now I could sleep by Hannah and could monitor her cries. It was a terrible night, neither one of us got any sleep. Emma and my own pups all slept near Hannah to watch over her. The next day, June 28th and this day also wasnt any better at all for Hannah or myself. Boy oh boy, did Emma feel so much better and just wanted to play play play with her sister. I was making sure Hannah stayed hydrated by giving her liquids via a syringe but there were only a few times that was needed. as she wanted to drink from her water bowl. Hannah seemed to enjoy her Rice and chicken mush every night and drank most of her special water from her bowl. The steroids, Tramadol and Gabapentin seem to be kicking in as Hannah was not crying as much or as loudly as in the past 2 days. So right now its 8 PM on the 29th shes lying down right next to me looking at me every once in a while with her beautiful sad puppy girl eyes as I try and distract Emma from the play mode. I am sure tomorrow will be a more pain free day for her. I hope shell be able to sleep comfortably tonight and not cry in pain occasionally . One great thing that happened during this entire episode was that I got so many Hannah kisses and lots of tail wags so I am so grateful and happy that Hannahs episode with HOD was not quite as severe as Emmas was. Please keep good thoughts for our sweet Hannah and little Emmas in your hearts and mind. If you are able to they both would appreciate and love any donations towards their health care, every donation is a blessing from all of you wonderful followers. All you have to do it hit the donate button to help Hannah, Emma and United Yorkie Rescue out. Every donation is a blessing and we are ever so grateful for those who have donated before and those that will donate towards their care for the future large Veterinary Bills that will come our way. We all would like to Thank all of you for keeping up with their pages and stay tuned for another pupdate from the girls themselves in the very near future. They sure do like to write about themselves. You can also donate for them on the website

Pupdate 6/19/22:I am Hannah and I would love to tell you a little about myself so you can get to know me a little bit better.

Whew, well I got so much better with the medications that the dogters gave me that the awesome Team Leader that picked me up and took me to the Emergency Vet in the middle of the night felt comfortable enough to let me go to my foster home. So here I am at Stickhorse Ranch and Ive been here for a whole week with my sister Emma. I have been acting like your typical almost 4 month puppy and I weigh 6.5 pounds and I have those sharp puppy teeth. My Birthday is February 25, 2022. Foster Mom occasionally catches me trying to steal and chew on her flip flops, the top of the plastic ramp (I am an excellent ramp climber-upper to get on the couch or bed and I climb down really good too) and other stuff but she just tells me no and redirects me to something else to chew or play with. My favorite things right now is to play with my sister, steal my 2 foster brothers' food, chewing on things, sleep and did I mention play? Sometimes I start it and sometimes Emma starts it. We play pretty hard too. I love to be in the fenced in backyard so we can roll around in the grass and we do lots of playing there too. I am just starting to learn how to walk on the leash and I am not liking it one bit plus that concrete or asphalt gets really hot now that it is summer time and it can burn my cute little paw pads really quickly.

I will be going to the Dogter on June 24th to get my first set of shots and FM decided to do the shots that I need in 2 visits cuz I am still so young and small. I will also get more X-rays to see if there have been any changes in the growth of my bones due to HOD. I am hoping I wont have another bone growth episode because it might involve an emergency care visit and IVs and stuff cuz it just hurts, hurts so much that I dont even want to eat, drink, stand up, walk or even pee and poop. It is very serious when it does happen. I just want to just lie there and cry in pain and I sure dont want to make my new FM to hear me cry because she will feel so helpless that she can not take my pain away. If you do not know about HOD there are so many articles that will help you learn about it on the world wide web. So I am hoping that my last episode on June 6th was just that,,, my last episode. But we will not know until the growth spurts start again. The HOD stuff is supposed to stop when I become full grown so I have got many more months and a couple more growth spurts to go to before I am fully grown. I am learning about potty training and those pee pee pads. I thought that it was a toy the first time I saw it and took off with it with my sister to play with it. Now I am learning to do my pee pee business on it. Im getting pretty good about the pee pee part now and I like to poop outside. Ive only had two poop accidents in the house but several pee pee accidents. I am getting much better though. I have gotten so much better with the pee pee pads than a week ago, so I think I will be house trained in no time.

So lets get down to business of what I would like to have in my new home and with my new family. My adoption fee will be $1000.00. It would be really nice if you are a work from home person or retired. I am so young that if your are away for too long I might begin to feel really sad. I need a fur friend to play with, preferably about my size and kinda young. I dont think a senior fur friend will work cuz I have so much energy that I might make them upset when I will not stop trying to play with them and I am pretty persistent about wanting to play. I am not crate trained and I dont like them. I love the doggie pen that sissy and I sleep in at night though. I need a fenced back yard and grass to play on and lots of toys. I love all toys. No children under 13 please. Parent(s) that will continue to teach me all the great things that will make me a perfect little pupper. Lots of good food, I LOVE food. So far I eat lots of good quality kibble but FM has given me strawberries and cantaloupe, green beans and carrots, all those good healthy fruits and vegetables are so yummy that I love them all so far.

I will need to get spayed at the age of about 6 months. FM says that you will need to sign a waiver promising that you will have me spayed. I am not allowed to even have one litter of puppies so if that is what you have in mind for me please do not submit an application. She will also want to get a confirmation from your vet to know that I have been spayed. There are way too many puppies in our world and I dont want or need to add more burden to the problem we already have these days. You also need to be aware of that HOD thing so please get educated on HOD so you know what you might see in the future until I am all grown up. Please be aware that if it flairs up it can become expensive to treat but we are hoping that is all behind me.

Pablo

Meet little Pablo, a sweet 9 month old puppy who is very ill and was being cared for in an emergency hospital in Southern California. We have since moved him to an Emergency/Speciality hospital clinic in Dallas/Fort Worth, TX.

Despite multiple tests and over $15,000 in vetting, he's still not out of the woods. We are in desperate need of support to continue to provide the life -saving diagnostics and medical treatment Pablo needs to survive.

THANK YOU TO PABLO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Update 11/24/22: Pablo continues his fight. When I arrived today I took this little baby in my arms. I could tell he was a little shaky. Being in the ER takes such a toll on these babies. I took him into the waiting room where it was quiet and just snuggled him tight. He gave me the sweetest kisses and finally just snuggled in and was able to go into such a good deep sleep. I just held him and let him snore while I gently rubbed his little face. This is what Thanksgiving was all about...holding a helpless baby who needed just a human touch and to reassure him he is loved.

Tomorrow we will make our final move to another ER where he can be seen by specialists in internal medicine. And today, we had a day with "better" blood values which is a plus! We're far from being out of the woods of course, but I will just trust and know that God sent him here because we will find the answer here.

Please keep this sweet puppy in your prayers and please help us through a donation using the link below. His life is just beginning. Thank you and bless you all!

Update 11/23/22: Precious 3lb and 9mth old Pablo aka Axel, has come into my care as we still search for answers. Pablo has been in the care of hospitals since November 2! He has a rarity to his blood that came upon him suddenly. What once was a happy feisty little puppy full of zoomies and play, turned overnight into a very lethargic puppy. Pablo will melt your soul when he looks at you and reaches up to give you such sweet sweet kisses. Pablo aka Axel has been through an unbelievable amount of tests searching for why this pup's bloodwork is absolutely crazy. He was released at one time and back in with high anemia in 2 days. His white blood count has been a high as 85,000 and his RBC ridiculously low. Finding the root of the infection is absolutely baffling.

We hope to get answers so this little nugget can finally come home and play with toys and fur siblings and be the puppy he deserves to be. We are so thankful for his life and with his fighting ability he has maintained to have this life he deserves. I ask you to please help us help him. During this time of thankfulness, we would love and appreciate anything you may be able to do to help him whether it be prayers, donations placed at www.uyr.us, or by sharing this baby's story. We are so blessed to have all of you as our amazing family and friends who love our babies!. Happy Thanksgiving and may God bless you all!

Update 11/19/22: The last time I saw Pablo, I was handing him off, with tears in my eyes, to medical emergency experts, in critical condition, limp and barely alive. This past week he has been surrounded by medical experts and a powerful circle of UYR supporters that have kept him in their hearts receiving as an arsenal of antibiotics to give his body the powerful weapons it needed to overcome the deadly infection that was taking over his vital organs one by one. For five days, Baby Pablo fought back like a Tiny Prize Fighter, refusing to let go of his life. And finallythe infection showed signs of weakness and the possibility of defeat.

Sitting in the waiting room of the emergency hospital, we waited with anticipation just to see him alive and showing signs of recovery. And finally, there he was very weak and frail, but eager to give us the puppy kisses wed been longing for, his tiny eyes sparkling with the signs of victory in the first round of the intense battle which will now continue at home with oral antibiotics, medical follow-up visits, high-quality nutrition, supplements, exercise, and rest critical to his continued recovery. This critically ill baby was surrendered by a loving family, their only wish is that he would survive. Placed in a crate, surrounded by loud sounds and strangers while test after test was administered, I am certain he must have been terrified. He will now be surrounded by the love in our hearts, the warmth of our home, and our steadfast commitment to placing Pablo gently onto the road to recovery and the promise of the Beautiful Yorkie Life he continues to dream of.

Pablos journey to health will be a long one. With no definitive diagnosis, time will tell if the severe pancreatitis and infection currently being treated is the original culprit, or if there is an underlying, undetected issue yet to be discovered. Careful monitoring of his bloodwork, medical status and recovery progress will continue for quite some time as he regains the strength in his muscles, returns to a normal weight and recovers emotionally. We just cant wait for him to return to playful puppyhood. The signs are definitely ther

Having an impact this significant is incredibly expensive and relies solely on YOUR GENEROUS DONATIONS. Wont you please reach deep into your pocket today, even though times are particularly challenging, and support UYRs efforts to Save Lives & Dog Dreams, just Like Pablos? Totaling an estimated $10K, Pablos treatment has taken a significant financial tollwe are a long way from his fund-raising target. Please donate using the link following this bio to help with his expenses.

Bio Update 11/15/22: Pablo was born on 1/31/2022, a beautiful, energetic, spunky, and playful baby just like any other Yorkie pup. His owner recently became increasingly concerned about Pablo's lack of appetite and attempted to entice him to eat, but he continued to refuse food. Over the course of a few weeks, Pablo became increasingly week and lethargic ultimately the family became concerned for his life. Pablo came to United Yorkie Rescue on Thursday and rushed immediately to an emergency specialty vet hospital fighting for his life with symptoms so severe he wouldn't have made it until Friday morning without life-saving intervention. This tiny little fighters bloodwork had critically elevated values in virtually every category, including white blood cell counts 5 times the normal levels indicating a massive and deadly infection was spreading through his frail little body. Pablo was immediately placed on IV glucose, broad spectrum antibiotics, and fluids in a frantic attempt to save his life. Tests were performed to rule out virtually every common scenario that could cause an infection of this magnitude and to pinpoint where the infection might be originating from without success. In the morning Pablo was rushed to another emergency facility where an emergency ultrasound could be performed. Results of the ultrasound revealed very severe pancreatitis, inflammation in his bowels, liver, stomach, and abnormalities in his kidneys, but no definitive answers regarding what was causing the infection were detected. The only option was to begin treating for multiple potential sources of the bacteria strains with antibiotics which resulted in a significant drop in white blood cells on Saturday indicating that something was beginning to work. Several of the vets at the clinic have reached out to several infectious disease specialists to share Pablos test results to see if they might be able to provide some insight.

Tonight, Pablo remains at the Emergency Specialty Hospital. There is still no indication of what or where this massive infection originated. With so many possibilities, his medical team has decided to stay the course with the current antibiotics which seem to be resulting in slight improvements over time. This morning we learned that Pablo was up and walking around for the first time since he arrived at the emergency hospital providing some encouragement from Pablo himself. This tiny little guy remains extremely ill as we continue to work with his medical team to find the answers and continue to support and treat his infection. Without UYR this adorable tiny puppy would never have survived, but now we feel hopeful that he will recover and have a chance at the healthy lifelong journey he deserves.

Initial Bio 11/10/22: Poor Pablo came into rescue just barely in time. When his owner handed him over, he was very ill despite all her efforts. We rushed him immediately to a 24 hour emergency hospital where he was given fluids and had bloodwork done. His CBC showed a seriously high white count indicating a major infection and he was started on IV antibiotics. This poor boy was so weak he couldn't stand. He was stable enough the next day for us to transfer him to a specialty hospital where they planned to do an ultrasound (check for liver shunt) and see an infectious disease specialist. Stay tuned as we try to get to the bottom of his health crisis.

Pixie

Meet sweet Pixie, a 3-4 year old, 8 pound Yorkie girl who is being fostered in Azle, TX. Only Texas residents will be considered.

center>THANK YOU TO PIXIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

John Sauser

Initial Bio 10/29/22: Meet little 3-4 year old, 8 pound sweet Pixie who was rescued from the streets and turned over to the local animal shelter. Pixie arrived at the animal shelter covered in flees and open sores on her body. The shelter immediately reached to out to United Yorkie Rescue and asked us to take her after her hold was up. They were suspicious that she had sarcoptic mange, which is very infectious to humans and animals, and immediately started her on a flea and tick medicine. We said yes, of course and foster mom made an appointment to get her into the vet the same day Pixie came into UYR. Little Pixie went to the vet immediately and received a thorough exam. While the vet could not find anything under the microscope after several skin scrapings, she was suspicious as well that she had sarcoptic mange. This little girl is now on an antibiotic, a prescription medicated shampoo, she will receive another round of flea and tick medicine in two weeks and she still needs to be spayed. Her blood work has come back perfect so she is a very healthy little girl. The veterinarian will not spay her until she is healed and has no open sores and she would not give her rabies right now. Foster mom has Pixie quarantined in a large dog crate and she is receiving medicated baths a couple of times a week and Benadryl for itching as prescribed by her vet. While this little girl is not ready for adoption, she will go fast. She has been through a lot but her personality is so sweet and tender. She cannot interact with foster moms other dogs yet but she really wants to come out and play with them. Pixies foster mom is still getting to know her but is looking forward to letting her snuggle on the couch with the rest of the pack! If you are interested in adopting her, please go to www.uyr.us and fill out an adoption application. In the meantime, her medical expenses are adding up quick. We are always so appreciative of our donners and would ask that you consider contributing to this little girls medical care. She has had a rough start in life but UYR is here to change that.

Update 10/21/22: Braxton suffered an unfortunate accident while in foster care that necessitated his going to the ER and getting surgery to fix a hip. Braxtons surgery went well. He is now home and doing well. When they did an FHO on his hip, they discovered a fractured pelvis under anesthesia but it's still in place so nothing was needed to be done. Braxton will have 2 months of recovery which includes physical therapy. He's an extremely hyper dog so it will definitely be a challenge. :).

Initial Bio 9/10/22: My name is Braxton and I'm 4 years old. My mom didn't have time for me so I'm looking for another family to love. My next family will need patience as I'm not housebroken and love to mark all over my foster mom's house. I came from a single-dog home but am having a good time with my foster mom's dogs. I love to go on car rides, walks, sit on your lap, come when called, snuggle up in bed, and I'm great at barking. I'm in the process of getting vetted and will need a neuter surgery before going to my furever home.


To date we've spent $5410.95 on Braxton's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1390 in donations.

Searcy

Out of State Applicants will be considered if it is a perfect fit for Searcy

THANK YOU TO SEARCY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Trula Montgomery, Sandy Pagnotta, Raelyn Skultety, Carol Gostomski, Wendy Klinke, Carol Gostomski in honor of Shakespeare's 14th birthday

11/12/22 Update: Searcy is doing so great! He now eats breakfast at 5:30 and dinner at 5:00, but I feel he would adjust to a new family’s schedule. He also doesn’t need to walk right after breakfast, he has been waiting until 7:00am or later.

He is also doing very well traveling in a car. I took him yesterday, by myself, to his grooming appointment. He stayed in the passenger seat the whole way there and then back. I have a harness, with a clip, that can be hooked to the seatbelt to keep him safe, but he is still able to look out the window.

Please read Searcy’s previous bios. If he sounds like the perfect fit for you, please fill out an application for adoption using the link below.

9/28/22 Update: Searcy is still looking for his Forever Home. He is the sweetest boy and loves everyone he meets! When we are out on a walk he stops to visit with everyone he sees. Searcy still cannot live with any other animals in the house, but he is friendly with other nice dogs out on his walks. He also is good with all the children in the neighborhood. Searcy would do fine with children 8 years and older, who know how to treat dogs and have lived with a dog before.

Please read all Searcys previous bios to understand him and his needs fully.

7/29/22 Update: Searcy is still waiting for his Forever Home. He absolutely loves his walks! He needs one walk after he eats is the morning (he eats around 5:00 am) and then one after he eats dinner (he eats around 5:00 pm). He is a very nice walker. Searcy may be 11.5 years old, but he acts more like a 7 year old dog!

Searcy can be left alone for long periods of time. He just lays down and relaxes while his person/people are gone. Weve already left him for 10 hours without any issues.

Please read Searcys previous bios to get the full scoop on him. If this sweet boy sounds like a good fit for you, please fill out an application for him.

5/27/22 Update: Searcy here! Im still looking for my Furever Home, so if youre out there Please fill out an application for me.

My eating times have become more regular, which is a good thing. I now eat breakfast at 5:00 - 5:15am and supper at 5:00pm. I still like my 1/8 cup of food around 2:00pm just to hold me over.

I still need to walk twice a day, usually at around 7:00am and again after eating supper. I will let you know when I need to go by staring at youthat seems to be my signal for eating also.

I forgot to mention, I do not like riding in the car.

Please read my previous bios, to get all the information, to decide if I would be a good fit for your lifestyle.

4/14/22 Update: Hi its me Searcy!

Foster mom told me that I am doing so much better! I haven't been so demanding, and that was my big problem. You still need to walk me twice a day, but its been on their terms more than mine...Same goes for feedings. I still have to work on that, but I'm Much better!

I'm a Great walker and just Love to be outside! I may be 11 years old, but you would Absolutely think I am no older than 5 years! I don't bark at dogs or children when I'm out and about on my walks. They can be barking at me, and I just walk on by.

I have been so good when foster mom and dad leave the house. I just lay in the chair until they come home. I do all of my business outside. Foster mom does not worry at all that I will potty inside.

There are some bell sounds and dinging sounds that trigger barking, but a stern No pretty much gets me to stop. If you love walking and want a sweet boy by your side, please fill out an application.

3/18/22 Update: Searcy is doing really well and is the sweetest boy. He is ready for his Forever Family! He will need a couple of weeks to adjust to a new home, so he needs someone with patience.

When he needs to out he will let you know. He wont stop whimpering, until you let him out. He wants to do his business outside. If he has been out, and then wont stop barking at you, he wants to go for a walk. Wait until he stops barking before you take him. You dont want him to get into the habit of continuous barking to get his way. From what we figured out, he likes to poop on a walk and not in the yard.

Searcy Loves, Loves, Loves going for walks! He would walk Forever if you let him! He Absolutely needs to walk twice a day no matter what the weather is like. So please consider that before you fill out an application. He may be 11 years old, but acts more like 6 years old. He is Very handsome and Healthy!

Searcy does need to stay on the gastrointestinal prescription diet he is currently on. I tried another food, but it caused him to be very anxious, so I switched him back. He eats anywhere between 4:00 - 5:00 am and then again between 4:00 - 5:00pm. He gets a partial feeding at around 1:30/2:00 in the afternoon. This schedule works well for him. He will whimper when he wants to eat. I am the primary feeder, so he whimpers at me when hes hungry. He goes to my husband for his walks. Both of us when he needs to go outside.

We have left him alone twice for about 3 - 4 hours, and both times he just slept in a chair. He has the run of the house, unless we are gone, then he stay in the gated TV room. Please read his prior bio for more information.

3/8/22 Update: Its been awhile since my adventure to WI. It was a long trip and took me some time to settle down. I was a little anxious. So I may have acted out a bit. My new Foster mom and dad have been very patient with me, taking the time to get to know me and my little quarks. They say I may be 11 yrs old but I act like a 6 yr old. I have special food that I eat and foster mom says I do best on this food and doesn't feel it should be changed anytime soon or if at all. I love to go on walks and I let my fosters know when I am ready to go. I get very excited on my walks but when I'm ready to stop I just lay down and rest sometimes my foster dad will carry me for a little while, but I get heavy so I have to start walking again but that's ok I don't mind. Foster mom says I am very good at letting them know when I have to go potty, for my poops I must be walked and just like the postman thru rain, sleet, or snow. I like to be in bed with my fosters. I will also spend time with them watching TV. I like to know where they are at all times. But enjoy my time resting alone as well. Either foster mom or dad have been home with me all the time and that's the way I like it. But if they have to go somewhere I will wait patiently for them to return. I am really smart if I do say so myself, I will sit lay down and shake on command. I love to play in the snow as well. I have had all my shots, but foster mom will be taking me to the dogtor on the 18th just to get a good overall check. Please keep an eye out for when I am ready to be adopted.

1/22/22 Update: Today Searcy took the ride of a lifetime. He was transferred to a foster home in Wisconsin so he could be an only dog with lots of attention. He took his first airplane ride and we want to thank Pilots for Paws for their amazing help to get Searcy transferred today.

Updated Bio 1/19/22

Searcy is a healthy, sweet, smart and playful guy who is up to date on all vet care and is ready for adoption. He really enjoys the outdoors and loves to run and play fetch. Searcy walks well on a leash and gets excited to go for walks. He is not a fan of car travel and can get a bit anxious but does not get car sick. Searcy is house trained and will go to the door to let you know he is ready to go. He loves to spend quality time with his person and hang out on the couch watching TV or doing whatever as long as he is by your side. He enjoys sleeping at night by his person but will also sleep on the couch. He really isn't to keen on a dog bed. Searcy wants to be the center of your attention and he does not get along well with other dogs or cats. If your looking for an only dog who has lots of love to give then Searcy is your guy!

Initial Bio 12/26/21:

Searcy Just came into rescue. So far we have observed that is is super smart, house trained and likes to play. He is not fond of car rides, other dogs or cats. Searcy's ideal home would be one where he is the center of attention someone who is home most or all of the time. He loves outside and likes to go for walks. He is a beautiful yorkie with chocolate/hazel eyes. Searcy was given up because his owners had a baby and Searcy didn't like being the center of attention anymore. For this reason he also can not go to a home with Children under 12. If your are interested in this beautiful boy please email foster mom or fill out an application.
