Brady

Say hello to Brady. This sweet 4 year old Yorkie boy has diabetes, but he is just perfect. He is 10 pounds. Sweet Brady is being fostered near Birmingham, AL.

Updated Bio. 05/18/18. Brady had his much needed dental Wednesday. Thank goodness he did not loose any teeth!! He has such a zest for life and never meets a stranger. He is ready for his forever home. If you would like a cuddle bug that loves to play fetch, then Brady is your man! Just follow the link to complete an application for adoption if you are interested.

UPDATED BIO 05/03/2018: Brady has been in his foster home for several weeks now and Foster Mom notes that he is a very confident but laid-back little fella. He loves his people, whether he is sitting beside you, at your feet, or sleeping in your bed or his bed, he totally loves to being with his humans. He hasn’t met a stranger yet that he didn’t like, whether human or canine (not sure yet about cats).

Brady has diabetes, which is well-managed with Insulin injections 2x a day; he is on a special diet of Royal Canin Glycobalance food. He is just a super sweetheart of a dog who is both pee-pee pad and leash-trained. He also knows a few commands and is a young, smart boy, and he is easily trained to new commands. Read more here about Diabetes in Dogs: https://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/diabetes-in-dogs/

Brady also LOVES to play fetch - doesn’t matter what type of ball – small, medium or large, he loves them all. He tries his best to get out of the fence-in yard when the kids are playing football or basketball so he can play with them! If you are looking for a cute, smart and loving doggie companion, Brady is your man!

Initial Bio. 04/15/18. Today is Brady's first day with his foster family, but he has settled in nicely with his 4 fur siblings. He has already made it known that he is a people person and loves to cuddle and be held. Although he has diabetes, it is being controlled with proper diet and insulin twice a day. He ate his special diet along side the other 4 when they ate without any problem! Stay tuned for more information as we learn more about adorable Brady.


To date we've spent $688.61 on Brady's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

I am a beautiful and sassy senior!
Alabama
Daisey

Say hello to Daisey. She is 10 years old and weighs a chubby 8 lbs. Daisy is vision-impaired with bilateral cataracts. Otherwise, she is a perfect Little Alabama Princess. Sweet Daisey is being fostered in Mobile, AL.

THANK YOU TO DAISEY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Christine Stanton, Karry Rogers

INITIAL BIO 06/08/2018: Daisey is an owner surrender whose family was unable to care for a little one who needs a little more attention than most doggies. Daisey is blind in her left eye and has impaired vision in her right eye due to bilateral cataracts. She just arrived at her foster home today and is learning the lay-out of her new home

Now a few words from Miss Daisey:

Hello everyone! I am not sure what is in store for me and I am a little nervous. I got to go for a car ride with a nice lady who told me she was my new foster mom and we drove to her house today. I don't know much about this new foster home, but I am settling in just fine with my bed and blanket from my old home. This "foster mom" told me she thinks I needs to go on a diet, but I think my legs are just short so she just "thinks" I weigh too much. I hope she doesn't plan on starving me! She said a healthy weight for me would be 6-1/2 lbs. I will let you know what happens with this diet.

Once Daisey's foster mom gets to know her a little better there will be more to come, so please stay tuned to learn more about this sweet princess.


To date we've spent $169.06 on Daisey's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $131.74 in donations.

Chikki is ready for her Forever Home

Beautiful Chikki
Arkansas
Chikki

Chiquita Bella is an 8 month old, 4 pound chihuahua puppy being fostered in Bryant, AR.

THANK YOU TO CHIKKI'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Elisa Boyd, Karry Rogers, Irene and Peter Havas, Joe Maxwell, Jackie Sorrells, Steve and Carol Ward

Update 4/28/18

Chikki came to UYR with a broken front leg. She kept us worried and for a time we feared she might lose her leg but we have WONDERFUL NEWS to share about our little “honorary Yorkie.” After a few weeks in her purple cast, Chikki returned to the Dogtor for X-rays and she is now cast-free and using all 4 legs like a champ! By all appearances Chikki now has normal use of her leg, no pain and she is in full playful puppy mode. Chikki’s Vet says to she still needs to limit any “unnecessary RUFFNESS” for a couple of more weeks just to be sure but she has been spayed and is nearly ready to find her FUREVER home. Chikki is literally one of the sweetest, most loving pups you will ever meet. Her perfect home would be one with another tiny pup comparable to her size

to be her best pal. Chikki is a tiny girl so no young children in the home please for her safety. She is a puppy and really wants to play. She is engaging in play in her foster home with Yorkies who are her size and is having a ball and she loves to be one of the gang. She will get her spay stitches removed on April 30th, and at that time, she is available for adoption to the right home. When she is not playing, foster mom's lap is the place she wants to be. She loves to nap snuggled under her blankey and give out lots of Chikki kisses. If you think you are Chikki’s PAWFECT person please apply to adopt her today.

Update 4/7/18

Chikki is doing AMAZINGLY WELL in her foster home. And there is even better news to share on this sweet girl. Chikki's Vet feels that her broken leg is likely salvageable! She is not in pain and she let the Vet manipulate the leg and she even walked on it for him. While her leg does bend unusually and probably will never "look" perfectly normal, there is a good chance it will heal. Chikki now has a stylish purple splint to complement her perfectly shaped heart face. She is on activity restriction and spending lots of time in foster Mom's lap giving and receiving kisses. After two months in her splint the Vet will repeat X-rays and see where we are. She will have her spay procedure April 19th. Please help us cover the ongoing cost of Chikki's care by clicking the PayPal button below and Thank You!

Initial Bio 3/23/18: You might be thinking....this does not look like a Yorkie and you would be right! This is Chiquita Bella or “Chikki” as her foster mom has nicknamed her. Local animal control called UYR to see if they might have room to help this young girl who is only 8 months old. Her leg was broken in January and her former family can not afford to fix it properly and they are moving back to Central America so Chikki needed someone to step up and help her very fast. Sadly, local shelters simply do not have the financial resources to fix broken legs so we decided to make Chikki an “honorary Yorkie” and bring her into UYR. She will see the Vet soon to see how we can best help her. Sweet Chikki just arrived in her foster home today and we will have an update on her soon so stay tuned!


To date we've spent $1630.18 on Chikki's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $255.00 in donations.

Brandy
California
Brandy

Brandy is a beautiful 4-year-old, 7 pound, little Yorkie girl being fostered in Southern California. Only candidates living in California will be considered for adoption.

THANK YOU TO BRANDY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Rodney and Robin Slagle

6/04/18. UPDATE BIO. Brandy continues to do well and make slow but steady improvements. This month she seems to have turned the corner with my husband Alex. She hasn’t wanted to have anything to do with him, but now she happily jumps on his lap and has even given him a few kisses on his nose. Before she would only kiss his hand. She continues to hoard the toys she likes and has begun guarding them all day long. She makes sure to take one of her “dollies” each time we walk and makes it the entire way with her “dolly” hanging out of her mouth. The neighbors think she’s just darling.

We continue to work with her on nipping, but she gets overly excited easily and will lash out at me when I touch her in a way she doesn’t like. A good example of this is when I attempt to clean her eyes and face each morning. She doesn’t like anyone touching her face and does growl and then try to nip when she doesn’t like the way she’s being touched or handled. In addition, she remains very fearful of meeting new people and will immediately nip if they try to touch her. The only way to get her to interact with an unfamiliar person is to give them treats. She’s very motivated by food and will take a treat from a stranger as long as they don’t try to touch her. For the past few weeks, I’ve been taking her with me to the store or to run errands, so she can experience new people and places, but I have to be careful not to allow anyone to touch her. I hope we’ll make some good progress on this front over the next month or so.

Brandy two favorite activities are going for walks and eating!!

03/20/18. Update Bio. Brandy came to UYR as an owner surrender that suddenly became intolerant and aggressive toward the other dog in her household after four years of peaceful coexistence. In addition, she became overly possessive of her owner and began nipping at others that came into her vicinity. Brandy has been medically evaluated and is in perfect health. In addition, she has been seen and evaluated by a reputable trainer and was placed on Prozac to help control her aggression, but the medication had no positive impact on the situation. Concerned for the safety of both of their dogs, Brandy’s owners found themselves with no other option than to seek the assistance of UYR.

Brandy has been a member of our family for the past six weeks. She has been weened completely off of medication, has been placed on a healthy, raw, grain free diet. Ironically, Brandy was immediately accepted into my little pack of three the day she arrived. We have had no major incidences of aggression between Brandy and any of our 3 Yorkies (with some minor pack corrections that are teaching her manners, none that have involved overly physical contact). In fact, they seem to like her, and regularly attempt to seek her out to play. Although Brandy tolerates the pack, she isn’t eager to engage with them just yet. She prefers the one-on-one attention of humans and has fallen in love with both my husband and myself. She is a sweet little lap dog that likes nothing more than cuddling, wrapped in a blanket and having her neck, ears and belly rubbed. She loves being brushed too and will sit on the floor next to my feet to wait for her turn. So adorable.

As her foster mom, and a person with several years of experience living and working with “Quirky Yorkies.” I think Brandy is a Fantastic little one and very typical of many of the more “Colorful” Yorkies. Brandy is a very loving, intelligent and complex little one that needs to be challenged and loves learning. She is super fun, and very spunky and so incredibly ADORABLE! She has a very high level of intensity in everything she does and absolutely needs lots and lots of exercise, attention and a new Mom & Dad that can respect and appreciate her for who she is. One of the things I love about Brandy is her strong desire to communicate her needs, albeit the way she has gone about it in the past has been understandably misinterpreted. For example, if she’s enjoying getting her ears scratched and you suddenly stop, she will grab your hand with her mouth gently because she wants more. I’ve been working with her to kiss rather than grab my hand and she is catching on quickly. If you rough her up or hold her too tightly she gets upset and will grab your hand as if to say, “Don’t do that to me!” If you grab her leash and walk to the door, she’ll nip your toes because she can’t wait to go outside. She’s learning how to kiss instead. Like most Yorkies – Brandy LOVES going for long mountain walks …. 1-mile twice per day. She also has a habit of growling in a fairly intimidating way if anyone or the dogs go near her when she’s in her bed or has a toy. Of course, this is normal, but in Brandy’s case it was overly intense. She’s doing this less and less as she begins to feel safer and becomes more accustomed to our family and the rules of our pack which include respecting others and their space.

Brandy also has a tendency to get overly excited which is usually the precursor to negative behavior. She is learning how to channel her excess energy into chewing bones, playing fetch, and tug-of-war. She is also learning how to have better manners with other dogs. Each evening I watch as my pack engages her or ignores her depending on how she is acting, and which cues she’s sending out. She is very smart and seems to be enjoying learning the ways and rules of the pack with little intervention from me – she seems to feel accomplished and I’m very proud of her.

Brandy also has rather strong obsessive/compulsive tendencies and (like many Yorkies) wants whatever another dog has. In Brandy’s case, she doesn’t want to play with another dog, she wants to steal the toy and hide it. She’s definitely a major hoarder. In the beginning she would sit and whine for a long, long, long time if she wanted something. Since she has learned that this just isn’t the way to get what she wants, and she rarely does this now. Brandy also knows when she needs quiet time and will sometimes retreat to her bed just to relax. To her credit, Brandy is perfectly housetrained and is terrific at letting us know when she has to go out to her little patch of grass on the deck.

In the beginning Brandy was aloof and didn’t really seem to like or trust people very much. She seemed uncertain of human interaction and wasn’t a big fan of being held or carried around and would growl. We got the sense she really just wanted to be left alone, like she was just plain fed-up humans, which we could totally understand based on the chaos this entire family had endured during their final months together. We believe that Brandy was very confused and disoriented because she just couldn’t figure things out, or what people wanted from her. She just wanted to go to her bed or retreat and “check-out.” The unpredictability of life also resulted in her lack of confidence, fear, and caused her to growl and/or lash out.

Brandy is a UNIQUE Yorkie that has definite streaks of unpredictability which (we believe) may stem from a combination of her possible in-breeding, past life experiences and genuine nature. It has taken time, good judgement, love, limits, and the ability to properly evaluate her state of mind at any given time and lots and lots and lots of positive reinforcement to develop a good, strong, loving relationship with Brandy. I’m confident that it will take her new owner(s) a good deal of BREED SPECIFIC KNOWLEDGE, time, effort, patience, love, kindness and respect and work to develop a loving relationship with Brandy.

Brandy is a Special UYR Yorkie with Unique Needs.

Brandy’s Specific Requirements – Please Read Carefully – In addition to UYR’s high-standards for potential adopters, the following additional conditions are specific to Brandy.

You must have demonstrated experience with the Yorkie Breed, and an understanding, experience and a passion for intensified breed characteristics and knowledge of how to properly correct with positive reinforcement and loving limits.

Brandy will not be adopted into a household with children or regularly visiting grandchildren under 16 years of age. A retired, yet active couple or single person that is home most of the time is highly preferable.

You must commit to having a “one-Yorkie” home FurEver. If you plan to have a mult-pet household at some future date, or if you currently have another pet, please do not apply to adopt Brandy. UYR will reserve the right to retrieve her should this commitment be broken.

Applicants for Brandy must live in Orange or San Diego Counties Only.

We’d like Brandy to be adopted by a Yorkie-Breed Enthusiast. We’d love to find her new FurParents that will take her to obedience, training and agility classes to establish and solidify a strong, life-long bond with Brandy.

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

Please check back for updates as my Foster Family gets to know me better!

Georgie and his BFF Sport
California
Georgie (and Sport)

Georgie is a 1.5 year of. 4.5 pound Malti-Poo. He is one half of a bonded pair and comes to UYR with his furry best friend Sport, a 2 year old, 8 pound Morkie. Both pups are being fostered in Fremont, CA and must be adopted together. NO OUT OF STATE APPLICATIONS WILL BE CONSIDERED.

THANK YOU TO GEORGIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Carol Nelson, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Carol Nelson, Sandra Wendt, Brigitte Saylor

UPDATE BIO 05/22/18: Georgie had his knee surgery, and is doing very well with it. Foster mom has not completely released him from bed rest, as he is a very active little guy, who loves to frolic, jump, and play with his buddy, Sport.

Georgie's vet said he could be released, but Foster Mom is taking every precaution, and being very conservative with him. She restrains him on a leash, to prevent him from performing any jumps or leaps. Georgie and Sport are so much to watch, they are quite entertaining.

Update Bio. 04/06/2018. Poor little Georgi! Such a sweet boy who loves to play, play, and play more. Foster Mom loves to watch him but was distraught when she noticed he held his right rear leg up when running. An appointment at the vet verified the suspicion, he has a severe luxating patella issue, and needs surgery. He also has an issue with the left rear leg, but not severe. We have scheduled his surgery, which will be in 2 weeks. He also needs a dental, which hopefully can be done at the same time. His playing will have to be restricted for at least 8 weeks, if not more. Not an easy thing to do, because this boy loves to play.

All this will be very expensive. But we want a bright, happy, healthy future for this adorable little boy. If you could help us pay for Georgi’s surgery, it would be greatly appreciated. We also would love your prayers and positive thoughts that all goes well for him through his surgery and recovery.

Initial Bio 3/24/18: This duo of young, adorable best pals have had a rough year so far. First, their owner was a victim of the fires that plagued the San Diego area. Displaced from their home, they were given to a friend for safe keeping until the owner could recover. That proved more challenging than anticipated and the original owner found that they were unable to come for them. The friend was given ownership with the intent of finding them a good home but is a widow with limited resources who after much heart ache reluctantly decided that UYR could give this precious pair the best start possible to a PAWFECT new life. These two pups are healthy, sweet as can be and are going to make some lucky adopter very happy! Stay tuned for updates as they have just reached their foster home.

THANK YOU TO SPORT'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Trula Montgomery, Carol Nelson

UPDATE BIO. 05/22/18. Foster Mom has noticed Sport is very shy of strangers. Sport and Foster Mom will start puppy training this week, to train him on basic commands, but more importantly, to socialize him with other people, in the hopes that this will help his stranger danger fear. Foster Mom is pretty excited about this,

Sport is such a cute, comical little guy. You just can't help but love him at first sight!

Sweet Puppy Bailey
Florida
Bailey

Puppy Bailey was born in the early morning hours on 04/21/2018 to momma Lydia. Bailey currently weighs only 1.97 lb. Bailey is being fostered in Bunnell, FL. Only Florida residents will be considered for adopting Bailey and her sisters. No out-of state adoption applications will be considered.

UPDATED BIO 06/05/2018: Bailey’s mom Lydia was one of 26 dogs pulled recently by a sister rescue group from a horrendous hoarding/backyard breeding situation. She is one of the 10 dogs that United Yorkie Rescue brought into our group. Lydia gave birth to 3 healthy puppies only a few days after arriving in her UYR foster home. UPDATE! Check out a video of Lydia and her precious puppies here: https://youtu.be/BRpIlpzU3BI

Puppy Bailey now has a voice of her own and here’s what she had to say recently:

Hi I’m Bailey and Lydia is my Momma – she is a very good momma, too. I am 6 weeks old and weigh 1.97 pounds. I like to play with my mom and my sisters and the other dogs that live with my Foster Mom. I love running around and around and around – you get the picture. I also love chewing on Foster Mom’s toes and slippers. But now that my teeth have come in she says they are razor sharp.

Foster Mom picks me up all the time and I really love cuddling with her. I give her tons of kisses and she gives me kisses right back. I love to snuggle with her and fall asleep while she is holding me. She’s says I’m the mischievous one of the sisters. Ummmm, don’t tell but I am the one who likes to rip up newspapers and pee-pee-pads. But, she never even gets mad at me even though I do make a lil’ mess. I’m growing up fast, so please stay tuned to hear about my latest antics, and please read the SPECIAL EXCEPTIONS posted below:

Ommmmmmmm.....

I love toys, too. This one is MINE.
Florida
Baloo

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

THANK YOU TO BALOO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Tatiana Ceballos, Scott Hall, Trula Montgomery

UPDATED BIO 06/02/2018: I am Baloo! I am a mature Yorkie gentleman. I love the outdoors and especially love being with my humans. If you are a drama-free person, then I am your drama-free dog. I require very little – here’s the very few things I need in a forever home:

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

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

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

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

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

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

Baloo still loves his toys. Lots of them. He loves to be out in the sun, but needs a fenced backyard. He loves to be with his human. Baloo can sit on command and give high fives. He would love a home with someone who is home most of the time. I will be perfectly happy hanging out with you most of the day, playing with my toys, and checking out the yard. If this sounds like you, follow the link below to complete an application for adoption.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hello future Parents

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


To date we've spent $375.97 on Baloo's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $238.80 in donations.
Please donate!

Sweet Puppy Cali
Florida
Cali

Puppy Cali was born in the early morning hours on 04/21/2018 to momma Lydia. Cali currently weighs only 1.98 lb. Cali is being fostered in Bunnell, FL. Only Florida residents will be considered for adopting Cali and her sisters. No out-of-state adoption applications will be considered..

UPDATED BIO 06/05/2018: Sweet Lydia was one of 26 dogs pulled recently by a sister rescue group from a horrendous hoarding/backyard breeding situation. She is one of the 10 dogs that United Yorkie Rescue brought into our group. Lydia gave birth to 3 healthy puppies only a few days after arriving in her UYR foster home. UPDATE! Check out a video of Lydia and her precious puppies here: https://youtu.be/BRpIlpzU3BI

Puppy Cali now has a voice of her own and here’s what she had to say recently:

Hi I’m Cali and Lydia is my Momma – she is a very good momma, too. I am 6 weeks old and weigh 1.98 pounds. Foster Mom’s grandson who is 12 years old says I’m the cutest and he tells me he loves me all the time. Because he’s only 12 years old, he can only hold me as long as his Mom and my Foster Mom are there to ensure that I am safe. We don’t tell my two sisters that he thinks I’m the cutest because he doesn’t want them to be sad, he loves them too.

I’m the chubbiest by .01 oz (hehe!) and love to chase the older dogs in Foster Mom’s house all around the house. Stanley is one of Foster Mom’s dogs and he plays with me all the time. It’s tons of fun to play with Stanley. I give lots of kisses to everyone and they always give kisses back to me. I love that too. Something else that I love is belly rubs – oh, yeah! I’m just a little fur ball and very outgoing. I stay busy running around and around and around – and then I need to rest up so that when I wake up I can do that all over again. Life is good.

I’m growing up fast, so please stay tuned to hear about my latest antics, and please read the SPECIAL EXCEPTIONS posted below:

PLEASE NOTE THESE SPECIAL EXCEPTIONS!

Sad Gina when rescued
Florida
Gina

Meet Gina. She is 8 years old and weighs 6 lbs. Sadly, sweet Gina tested positive for heartworm disease. She is being fostered in Orlando, FL.

THANK YOU TO GINA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Lazara Hierro, Norma Dorsett, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Steven Opetaia-Williamson, Angie Cagle, Karry Rogers, Steven Opetaia-Williamson

UPDATED BIO 06/03/2018: Gina is one of 26 dogs pulled recently by a sister rescue group from a horrendous hoarding/backyard breeding situation. She is one of the 10 dogs that UYR was able to bring into our group.

Here’s what Gina had to say recently:

Hi all, Gina here again. Boy-oh-Boy, did I ever have a really bad week. I had to have emergency surgery this past Friday morning. The dogtor said I had something called Pyometra, and that it was bad. All I know is that I felt really really terrible. See, I had lots of beautiful babies in my former breeding situation, and that’s why this happened to me. I later found out that Pyometra means my uterus was full of pus and I could have died. I am a smart girlie so I googled Pyometra and here’s what it is: “Pyometra is defined as an infection in the uterus. Pyometra is considered a serious and life-threatening condition that must be treated quickly and aggressively. Pyometra is a secondary infection that occurs as a result of hormonal changes in the female's reproductive tract.” I’m so very happy that my foster mom took me in really quick to the vet or I could have died. What a terrible thought.

My foster mom was so worried about me. She was so relieved when the dogtor called her and said I was out of surgery and starting to wake up. My foster mom was so happy to see me when she picked me up Friday afternoon. She hasn't let me out of her sight since. I am so happy she loves me so much and takes such super great care of me.

I'm just starting to feel much better today. But, my unexpected surgery means that my heartworm treatment had to be pushed back a little. I'll start the treatment injections on June 21st. I'll tell ‘ya, I'm not happy about getting shots, but the sooner I get this done, the sooner I could be furever yours. If you have read all of this, it must mean that you may be a little bit interested in me. Who wouldn’t be? I mean, I’m really cute, right?

PLEASE NOTE the following special circumstances:

- Due to Gina’s small size, she cannot be adopted into a home with children of any age; she needs an adult-only home. No exceptions will be made.

- Adoption applications are being accepted for Gina; however, please keep in mind that because she has tested positive for heartworms, she must endure 2-3 months of heartworm treatment before she can go into her forever home. UYR follows the recommended treatment provided by the American Heartworm Society. Heartworm Treatment is very expensive and will cost approximately $800-$1,000 per dog. Currently, 4 out of the 10 dogs taken in with Gina tested positive for heartworms. Please consider a donation to help UYR continue to rescue and rehabilitate other dogs with heartworms.

- Please be patient with our process in considering adoption applications for Gina as our primary interest is supporting her during her heartworm treatment. Our primary goal at this time is getting this sweet girl healthy so that she can continue to enjoy a wonderful life in a loving, forever home.

- UYR is reaching out to our friends, supporters and generous donors in the hopes of raising the thousands of dollars it will cost our group to get Gina healthy, as well as the 9 other dogs from the same hoarding/backyard breeding situation. They not only need to have their vaccinations updated, be neutered or spayed and have extensive labs, but they also need to emotionally heal from years of neglect. For the ones that are HW+, they will soon begin treatment which will last 4-5 months. If you have been moved by Gina's story and her courage and resilience, please consider making a donation to UYR to cover vetting expenses and support our organization as we begin the long process of rehabilitating these precious little dogs.

Here’s what Gina had to say recently:

Hi again, it's Gina. I'm settling into my new home with my foster mom and two fur-sisters. A very nice lady came to my foster mom's house and gave me a wonderful haircut. I feel so much better. She must have cut a half pound of hair off me – that was the first haircut I can ever remember having that felt so good and she was so gentle with me. I liked it.

I sure do look and feel so much better, but I'm still a very sick little girl. When the nice people at UYR rescued me and a lot of my friends from a terrible home in South Florida, nobody knew that 4 of us would be heartworm positive. I was sad to find out that I was one of the 4 that had heartworms. My foster mom took me to the vet the day after I was rescued and he told us the bad news. Not only that, the vet said I had hookworms and infections in my ears and eyes. I had to take some yukky medicine for the hookworms. I'm also getting eye drops and ear medicine every day.

Now about the heartworms. I have to take pills twice a day now that I have started my heartworm treatment. Foster mom said that after two months of swallowing those darned pills every day, then I will start getting shots! OUCH! She said that it will take four months for all this to happen. Yikes. It's not going to be fun, but I know I am in good hands with my foster mom and she'll make it all right. She is gentle with me and holds me and kisses me and tells me all the time how beautiful I am and what a good girl I am. I like that. I have never had gentle hands touch me before I was rescued. Catch ya later. Gina, out.

INITIAL BIO 04/12/2018: Gina is one of 25 dogs pulled by a sister rescue group from a horrendous hoarding/backyard breeding situation today. She is one of the 10 dogs that UYR was able to bring into United Yorkie Rescue. All of these dogs were terribly neglected and medically-needy and were all living in an unsafe, unsanitary and over-crowded home with very little human interaction. All of these dogs appear to be very sweet and docile, even though many of them may have hidden medical issues that we are not yet aware of.

PLEASE NOTE: Gina had her first vet check, and sadly - she tested positive for heartworms. This means that Gina must endure HW treatment that is very hard on any dog, and it will be even harder since Gina and the other dogs rescued are currently all in poor physical condition. She will be in her foster home for up to 4 months while she is undergoing HW treatment. So far, 4 out of the 10 dogs from this neglectful situation have tested positive for heartworm disease. It is hoped that the rest of the dogs from this backyard breeder who have not yet seen the vet will not be positive for heartworms. Prayers are appreciated and donations will be gladly accepted.

Gina and the other precious little dogs did not come with any vetting information, and all need to be altered. They are all in poor condition, and many will need longer to recuperate from the horrible neglect than others. All have rotten mouths and most of them will likely lose all of their teeth. UYR is committed to caring for these dogs and providing them with a safe, compassionate and loving foster home, while at the same time letting them know the life ahead of them will be full of wonderful things.

UYR is reaching out to our friends, supporters and generous donors in the hopes of raising the thousands of dollars it will cost our group to make sure all of these dogs’ medical needs are taken care of, as well as their emotional needs. If you have been moved by Gina's story and her courage and resilience, please consider making a donation to UYR to cover vetting expenses.


To date we've spent $1578.13 on Gina's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $590.00 in donations.

Lily is happy in her foster home

Sad Lily on rescue day
Florida
Lily

Lily is 6 years old and weighs 9.4 lbs. Sadly, Sweet Lily tested positive for heartworm disease. She is being fostered in St. Augustine, FL.

THANK YOU TO LILY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Trula Montgomery, Karry Rogers, Wendy Fuhrmaneck

UPDATED BIO 05/29/2018: Lily is one of 25 dogs pulled by a sister rescue group recently from a horrendous hoarding/backyard breeding situation. She is one of the 10 dogs that United Yorkie Rescue brought into our group. Sadly, 4 of the 10 dogs tested positive for heartworm disease and Sweet Lily was one of them.

Lily has come such a long way after being rescued from a terrible situation only 6 weeks ago. She is very smart, and is now house-trained, which is a big deal for a dog that has known nothing in her life but an over-crowded hoarding/backyard breeding situation. Lily is becoming a very loving little girl who wants to be with her person(s) all the time now. She is still initially reluctant of a stranger that comes into the foster home, but Foster Mom is taking her out and about as much as possible so that she can be well-socialized and meet lots of people. Lily’s last outing at Petco was very good in that she allowed strangers to come up to her and pet her. She is beginning to enjoy going for walks and rides very well in the car.

Lily did initially present with what appeared to be issues with her back legs. Her knees do not seem to bother her as she still runs and walks, and formerly had a bit of a limp on the back left leg. Her Foster Mom has been giving her CBD, which seems to help her a lot and the great news is that she is no longer limping and is a very friendly and loving dog these days. Lily has been cleared to start her heartworm treatment on 06/20 and should finish the treatment 5-6 weeks later. Once she completes her treatment, she will have a dental, spay and mammary gland removal. Then little Lily will be ready to go to her forever home.

Finally, this precious little girl is a happy dog.

PLEASE NOTE the following special circumstances:

- Lily can only be adopted into a home with children aged 14 or older.

- Adoption applications are being accepted for Lily; however, please keep in mind that she has tested positive for heartworms. This means that Lily must endure many weeks of heartworm treatment before she can go into her forever home. UYR follows the recommended treatment protocol recommended by the American Heartworm Society. Heartworm Treatment is very expensive and will cost approximately $800-$1,000 per dog. Currently, 4 out of the 10 dogs taken in with Lily tested positive for heartworms. Please consider a donation to help UYR continue to rescue and rehabilitate other dogs with heartworms.

UPDATED BIO 05/11/2018: Lily is one of 25 dogs pulled by a sister rescue group recently from a horrendous hoarding/backyard breeding situation. She is one of the 10 dogs that United Yorkie Rescue brought into our group. Sadly, 4 of the 10 dogs tested positive for heartworm disease and Sweet Lily was one of them.

Foster Mom says that it is hard to believe Lily was rescued just a month ago as this sweet girlie has come a very long way in this short time. She is very smart, and is now house-trained, which is a big deal for a dog that has known nothing in her life but an over-crowded hoarding/backyard breeding situation. Because none of the dogs from this horrible situation were socialized, Lily is still somewhat afraid of people, but her foster mom and dad are working with her daily, and having her meet as many family members and friends as possible. Lily likes being with her foster parents, and when foster mom is in her home office, Lily and the other dogs and a cat are there with her, usually sound asleep and content.

Lily loves going outside, playing, running and barking with the other dogs. It took her a while to find her voice, but that happened a few weeks ago and she will now happily bark when the others do. Lily is a very sweet and lovely dog. She is not currently what one would consider a lap dog, but in time her foster parents feel that she may soon come to enjoy being very close to her people – she has never experienced this before and for some dogs from situations like Lily came from, it takes more time.

Lily has started her heartworm treatment with antibiotics for 25 days; then she will return to the vet to see if she is healthy enough to continue the treatment. If so, it will be a several months of treatment, and then her dental and spay will be scheduled, along with removal of some potential mammary gland tumors.

Lily does have some issues with her back legs, and the vet suspects that she has bilateral luxating patellas and has had this issue for a long time without treatment. Her knees do not seem to bother her as she still runs and walks, and only occasionally has a bit of a limp on the back left leg, but does not seem to be in any pain. Finally, this precious little girl is a happy dog.

She is one of the 10 dogs that UYR was able to bring into United Yorkie Rescue. Lily came in not only with heartworm disease, but with bilateral ear infections. She will see the vet on Monday to check her ears, and potentially begin her heartworm treatment.

Lily is slowly becoming more interested in her foster mom and dad and the little pack of doggies in her home. She is a very good eater and doesn’t mind taking her meds. She is a timid little girlie, probably because of the circumstances of her existence in an over-crowded and chaotic environment, but she does come out to check on everyone regularly. Foster mom was pleased that just last night, Lily asked to get up on the loveseat with her and the resident dogs. Please stay tuned for more information on this sweet little girlie.

PLEASE NOTE the following special circumstances:

- Adoption applications are being accepted for Lily; however, please keep in mind that she has tested positive for heartworms. This means that Lily must endure 4-5 months of heartworm treatment before she can go into her forever home. UYR follows the recommended treatment protocol recommended by the American Heartworm Society. Heartworm Treatment is very expensive and will cost approximately $800-$1,000 per dog. Currently, 4 out of the 10 dogs taken in with Lily tested positive for heartworms. Please consider a donation to help UYR continue to rescue and rehabilitate other dogs with heartworms.

- Please be patient with our process in considering adoption applications for Lily as our primary interest is supporting her during her heartworm treatment. Once Lily has completed treatment, she will be altered and receive any additional vaccinations needed. Our primary goal at this time is getting Lily healthy so that she can continue to enjoy a wonderful life in a loving, forever home.

- UYR is reaching out to our friends, supporters and generous donors in the hopes of raising the thousands of dollars it will cost our group to get Lily healthy, as well as the 9 other dogs from the same hoarding/backyard breeding situation. They not only need to have their vaccinations updated, be neutered or spayed and have extensive labs, but they also need to emotionally heal from years of neglect. If you have been moved by Lily's story and her courage and resilience, please consider making a donation to UYR to cover vetting expenses and support our organization as we begin the long process of rehabilitating these precious little dogs.

INITIAL BIO 04/12/2018: Lily is one of 25 dogs pulled by a sister rescue group from a horrendous hoarding/backyard breeding situation today. She is one of the 10 dogs that UYR was able to bring into United Yorkie Rescue. All of these dogs were terribly neglected and medically-needy and were all living in an unsafe, unsanitary and over-crowded home with very little human interaction. All of these dogs appear to be very sweet and docile, even though many of them may have hidden medical issues that we are not yet aware of.

PLEASE NOTE: Lily had her first vet check, and sadly - she tested positive for heartworms. This means that Lily must endure HW treatment that is very hard on any dog, and it will be even harder since Lily and the other dogs rescued are currently all in poor physical condition. She will be in his foster home for up to 4 months while she is undergoing HW treatment. It is hoped that none of the other dogs from this backyard breeder test positive for heartworms. So far, 4 out of the 10 dogs from this neglectful situation have tested positive for heartworm disease. Prayers are appreciated and donations will be gladly accepted.

She and the other precious little dogs did not come with any vetting information, and all need to be altered. They are all in poor condition, and many will need longer to recuperate from the horrible neglect than others. All have rotten mouths and most of them will likely lose all of their teeth. UYR is committed to caring for these dogs and providing them with a safe, compassionate and loving foster home, while at the same time letting them know the life ahead of them will be full of wonderful things.

UYR is reaching out to our friends, supporters and generous donors in the hopes of raising the thousands of dollars it will cost our group to make sure all of these dogs’ medical needs are taken care of, as well as their emotional needs. If you have been moved by Lily's story and her courage and resilience, please consider making a donation to UYR to cover vetting expenses.


To date we've spent $437.88 on Lily's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $65.00 in donations.

Lydia is a great momma

Lydia and her adorable puppies
Florida
Lydia

Lydia is 5 1/2 years old and weighs 8.6 lbs. She is being fostered in Bunnell, FL..

THANK YOU TO LYDIA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Kerri Carubia, Irene and Peter Havas

UPDATED BIO 06/05/2018: Lydia is one of 26 dogs pulled recently by a sister rescue group from a horrendous hoarding/backyard breeding situation. She is one of the 10 dogs that United Yorkie Rescue brought into our group. Lydia gave birth to three beautiful and healthy baby girls several days after being rescued. UPDATE! Check out a video of Lydia and her precious puppies here: https://youtu.be/BRpIlpzU3BI

Lydia wanted to let everyone know how she is doing:

Hi folks, my beautiful puppies are now 6 weeks old and they don’t need me as much anymore since they have been weaned. It’s a good thing they aren’t nursing any longer; their little puppy teeth were getting pretty sharp. But on a positive note, I get to spend more time with Foster Mom. I sit with her whenever it can, she says I’m a real love bug and a beautiful girl. I’m a pretty calm and laid-back gal. I consistently do my business on a pee-pee-pad, but Foster Mom said we will soon start working on going outside. She said we will be doing that soon now that I have rested up after having my puppies and nursing them.

I love love love bath time – and I love the attention I get and how fluffy I am afterwards. I get along with the other dogs in my foster home, as well as the people that come to visit me and the girls. I feel so happy when people visit since I like to show off my beautiful puppies. Before when I had puppies, they were taken away from me way too early, and I didn’t get to enjoy playing and cuddling with them – this is surely Doggie Mommy Heaven. Foster Mom tells me every day that I’m the best Mommy in the world, and she also tells me how beautiful I am and how beautiful my girlies are. I’m so happy that I can stay with my puppies until they go to their forever homes. I’ll miss them when they leave to go to their new homes, but once they are adopted, Foster Mom said that the absolutely perfect, loving and forever home will be waiting for me, too. Wow. That sounds like another level of Doggie Heaven.

UPDATED BIO 04/24/2018: Lydia is one of 26 dogs pulled recently by a sister rescue group from a horrendous hoarding/backyard breeding situation. She is one of the 10 dogs that United Yorkie Rescue brought into our group.

Sweet Lydia was pregnant and only days away from giving birth when she was rescued. She gave birth a few days ago to 3 healthy little female puppies and both Lydia and her puppies are doing well.

Lydia is a great little mommy to her puppies. We want to allow her to nurture them as this will be the last litter of puppies this sweet girl will have. Once the puppies are weaned (approximately 6 weeks), it will be at least 6-8 additional weeks before she can be spayed. We feel it is in Lydia’s best interests, and also the puppies’ best interests, that she stay with them until they are adopted. The time newborn puppies spend with their mothers -- and also their littermates -- is crucial on so many different levels, from receiving the proper nourishment to learning necessary social skills for the future.

PLEASE NOTE the following special circumstances:

- Adoption applications are being accepted for Lydia; however, please keep in mind that it will be several months before she will be ready for adoption. Please be patient with our process in considering adoption applications for Lydia. Our primary interest is getting this sweet girl and her newborn puppies healthy so that they can continue to enjoy a wonderful life in loving, forever homes.

- UYR is reaching out to our friends, supporters and generous donors in the hopes of raising the thousands of dollars it will cost our group to get Lydia and her puppies healthy, as well as the 9 other dogs from the same hoarding/backyard breeding situation. They not only need to have their vaccinations updated, be neutered or spayed and have extensive labs, but they also need to emotionally heal from years of neglect. For the ones that are HW+, they will soon begin treatment which will last 4-5 months.

PLEASE NOTE: We have determined that Lydia is HW- and we are so grateful for this news. As with all the females from this awful situation, Lydia has been used as a breeder her entire life, and probably has had numerous litters of beautiful puppies which were taken from her way too soon. Lydia is currently pregnant again and will most likely deliver her puppies in the next few weeks. She seems to be adjusting well to her new foster home, especially considering the fact that she was kept in a shed with other breeding females. Right now, she is decompressing, and all she wants is to be close to her Foster Mom and as long as she can see her, she is an angel. Prayers are appreciated and donations will be gladly accepted.

Lydia and the other precious little dogs did not come with any vetting information, and all need to be altered.

I am pretty. Oh So Pretty.

I am looking for you to be mine
Florida
Maggie

Sweet Maggie is 2.5 years old and currently weighs 9.1 pounds. Maggie is on a special medication/diet protocol for treating a genetic liver issue. She is being fostered in North Port, FL.

THANK YOU TO MAGGIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Angie Cheeks

UPDATED BIO 06/17/2018: Maggie was surrendered by her owners when they realized they were no longer able to care for her. She has been in her foster home for 3 months now and continues to thrive on her meds and special diet of Science Diet L/D. Maggie will need to be on this medication/special diet protocol for the rest of her life and she can live a long, happy and healthy life by adhering to this regimen. The approximate cost of her monthly meds and RX food is $30. This beautiful gal is totally worth every penny!

Maggie doesn’t know that her liver values are off a bit and acts just like any other young 2 ½ year-old pup. She is very friendly and sweet – oh, and very active - and loves her foster mom and dad. And she loves to give kisses, too. Actually, Maggie loves everyone, including dogs of all sizes and even kitty cats! Maggie enjoys playing with toys, going on walks and especially loves running wild in the back yard, so a fenced-in backyard would be a bonus for this little angel. She will keep her family smiling just seeing her enjoying her happy life.

PLEASE NOTE: Maggie can be adopted into a home with children over the age of 12.

UPDATED BIO 05/14/2018: Maggie was surrendered by her owners when they realized they were no longer able to take care of her. She seems to be doing great on her meds and her special diet of Science Diet L/D which is indicated due to an imbalance in her liver values. It is likely that Maggie will need to be on this medication/special diet protocol for the rest of her life. Maggie can live a long, happy and healthy life by adhering to this regimen.

Maggie doesn’t know that her liver values are off a bit and acts just like any other young 2-1/2 year-old pup. She is very friendly and sweet and loves her foster mom and dad. Actually,

she loves everyone, including dogs of all sizes and even kitty cats! Another Bile Acid Test will be done in June, and the results will determine when Maggie may be ready to go to her forever loving home.

UPDATED BIO 03/29/2018: Maggie was surrendered by her owners when they realized they were no longer able to take care of her. She is doing well with taking Lactulose and a special diet of Science Diet L/D which is indicated to treat her potential liver shunt. She must know that the meds are helping her feel better since she doesn't complain when taking them. Sweet! Foster Mom says that Maggie will hop like a bunny into either her or Foster Dad's laps and give them tons of kisses. Maggie is also now enjoying running like the wind in the back yard.

Maggie will have another Bile Acids test in the first week of May, and the results will determine if the meds and special diet are working. If this is the case, then she will be ready adoption at that time, and will need to be on her medication/special diet protocol for the rest of her life. Maggie can live a long and happy life by adhering to this regimen. Stay tuned for future updates on this little princess.

Initial bio 3-4-18 Maggie was surrendered by her owners when they realized they were no longer able to take care of her. They learned she may have a liver shunt, and with a new baby in the home she was not getting the care they knew she needed. At 2 and a half years old she may be too old for the liver shunt surgery, but she will be put on the special Rx food formulated for dogs with liver issues. She should do very well on this food as long as she stays on this food for life and is under the care of a vet who will monitor her liver values. At 2 1/2 years old she most likely has many many years, at least 10 or more, left in her.

Maggie's foster mom said Maggie is too skinny and needs to put some weight on her. Once she sees the vet and gets on the LD food Maggie should put on the weight she needs and go on to live a long life.

Maggie seems to be very friendly and sweet and has already taken up residence on her foster dad's lap. She is getting along with the other fur friends in her foster home. She is not yet house trained, but her foster parents will be working on that with her. We will know more about Maggie and her possible liver shunt after her vet visit.

Please come back soon to see what we find out about this adorable, sweet little girl.


To date we've spent $889.10 on Maggie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $50.00 in donations.
Please donate!

Handsome Opie after grooming

Sad Opie when rescued.
Florida
Opie

Opie is 8 years old and weighs 5.9 lbs. Sadly, Sweet Opie is heartworm positive. He is being fostered in Ocala, FL..

THANK YOU TO OPIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Chris Gaastra, Wendy Fuhrmaneck

UPDATED BIO 05/21/2018: Sweet Opie is one of 26 dogs pulled by a sister rescue group from a horrendous hoarding/backyard breeding situation today. He is one of the 10 dogs that came into United Yorkie Rescue.

Here’s what Opie had to say today: Opie here. I have been in my foster home for 4 weeks now. I didn’t know humans could be so nice. My foster mom has this thing she calls a doggie sling. She puts me in that and holds me while she works on the computer – how cool is that? She also has a huge bed that me and my fur brothers are allowed to sleep in. I cuddle so close to my foster mom that she is unable to move. I wake my foster mom up every day with kisses because I am so happy to be in my new home.

I love my foster mom – a lot – but there is something missing. As soon as I finish my heartworm treatment and then go to the doctor to get my teeth cleaned and “tutored” (I think that is what my foster mom said), I would love to have a forever home. My foster mom tells me that I am the cutest little cuddle bug and that I would make a great addition to my forever home.

PLEASE NOTE the following special circumstances:

- Due to Opie’s small size, he cannot be adopted into a home with children; Opie needs an adult-only home. No exceptions will be made.

- Adoption applications are being accepted for Opie; however, please keep in mind that he has tested positive for heartworms. This means that Opie must endure 4-5 months of heartworm treatment before he can go into his forever home. UYR follows the recommended treatment protocol provided by the American Heartworm Society.

He is one of the 10 dogs that came into United Yorkie Rescue. Opie is adjusting well in his foster home and loves his fur-brothers. They are older and calm - just what Opie needs. None of the dogs from this horrible situation were house-trained or leash-trained, so foster mom is working with him on and he is showing progress. Opie is a little love bug who loves to be held and give kisses. He also likes to sleep in bed with his foster mom and fur-brothers. Foster mom says that he is a quiet and well-behaved little boy.

Opie has received his vaccinations, but still needs to be neutered and have his teeth cleaned. He will not be able to have those things done until he has been treated for heartworms. Opie loves his foster mom and the other dogs in the home, but he is looking forward to the time he can be adopted and go to his furever family.

I am so happy to be out of that shelter

I am going to the vet soon to be all better
Florida
Rosa

This sweetheart is little Rosa. She is 10 years old and weighs about 9 pounds. She is being fostered in Dunedin, FL.

Initial Bio 6/10/18 Little Rosa was picked up from the kill shelter just yesterday. She was found wandering the streets and taken in by Animal Control. Rosa was probably on the streets a long while because of the condition she was in when she was picked up. Rosa remained in the shelter waiting for her owners to come find her. That never happened and this sweet girl was one day away from being euthanized when United Yorkie Rescue was contacted and asked if we would take her. Of course we would. She needed us and we were there. When she met her United Yorkie Rescue angel she was so happy to be away from that noisy shelter and safe in her United Yorkie Rescue’s mom’s arms.

Rosa will be taken to the vet very soon. She has several medical issues that need to be addressed and taken care of. She needs her eyes checked and may lose one. She has a mammary tumor that has to be removed, and she needs to be spayed. She also has skin dermatitis probably from fleas, and she will need a dental. It is also possible she has an ear infection. The streets were not kind to such a small dog as Rosa.

As you know we count on our rescue angels to help us with the medical costs of so many needy dogs and Rosa is one of them. She most likely will have at the least two surgeries and maybe even three. Please, once again reach into your pockets and your heart, and make a donation to sweet Rosa. Let’s her know she is now safe and will be cared for and loved for the rest of her life.


To date we've spent $555.37 on Rosa's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

I know I am cute.

Look how adorable I am.
Florida
Rufus

Say hello to Rufus. He is an adorable 10 month old Parti-Yorkie Biewer puppy who weighs approximately 11 lbs. Rufus is being fostered in Odessa, FL.

THANK YOU TO RUFUS' RESCUE ANGELS!

Beatrix Schaeffer

INITIAL BIO 06/16/2017: Rufus just arrived in his foster home today and is getting acquainted with the other animals in the home. He was reluctantly surrendered by his owners who loved him very much, but their life circumstances changed and they were no longer able to care for Rufus and wanted a happier life for him.

Rufus is a very sweet, affectionate and typically playful little pup. He LOVES playing and cuddling with people and other dogs. Rufus needs a little reinforcement in the house-training department, but does do his business outside - most of the time. He is young and gets excited about going outside, and may forget why he is there, lol! His foster parents will be working with teaching him to focus when he's outside and to go potty before playtime.

Rufus can be an escape artist when the door is open, so he needs a home where he will receive consistent training on his "stay" command. He goes willingly into his crate if he is given the "place" command and of course, he knows he will get a treat once he obeys. He's still a very young puppy and is anxious to learn and please his humans.

Because Rufus is so young and playful, the ideal home for him would be with another dog close to his size and age so that he could learn proper puppy manners and have a buddy to rough-house with. A fenced-in yard would be a great bonus so that he can take his sweet time running, sniffing, going potty, etc. before he has to come in. The fenced yard is not a deal-breaker as long as he is taken on frequent walks. He would also enjoy having children to play with - as long as they were older than 10 years old and understand that he still needs to learn about being a well-behaved puppy.


To date we've spent $0 on Rufus's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $100.00 in donations.

Sad Sophie when rescued

Sophie after grooming
Florida
Sophie

Meet Sophie. She is 9 years old and weighs 7.6 lbs. Sadly, Sweet Sophie has tested positive for heartworm disease. She is being fostered in Palm Coast, FL

THANK YOU TO SOPHIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Karry Rogers, Lynne Turner, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, John Sauser

UPDATED BIO 05/24/2018: Sophie is one of 26 dogs who was pulled by a sister rescue group 6 weeks ago from a horrendous hoarding/backyard breeding situation. She is one of the 10 dogs that UYR was able to bring into United Yorkie Rescue. All of these dogs were terribly neglected and medically-needy and were all living in an unsafe, unsanitary and over-crowded home with very little human interaction.

Sophie had this to say recently:

Hi - My name Sophie, I so happy that I was rescued. I lived my whole life in a really bad – and sad – place. There was never enough food or water cuz’ there was so many other doggies there. While I was there, I kept having beautiful baby puppies, but I never got to keep any of them, and that made me even sadder.

Now for some good news - I have a really great foster mom who lets me sit on her lap whenever I want. She gives me kisses and tells me how much she loves me and how special I am. Before I came into foster mom’s home, no human ever told me how special I was and gave me kisses. I was never given a bath either, but now I love taking baths cuz’ it makes me feel so good afterwards. And another wonderful thing – I never knew what “treats” were until now, but I sure do love them.

Foster mom tells me that I have to stay with her for a while since I was in really poor condition when I came to her. I have to get healthy enough to go through heartworm treatment and get spayed and have a dental. She said I will probably lose all my teeth, but that’s okay with me since my mouth hurts sometimes and she said it will feel so much better. I do have a teeny-tiny heart murmur, so that needs to be monitored. Will you please stay tuned while I’m getting all healthy? Because then I will be looking for my forever home.

PLEASE NOTE the following special circumstances:

- Adoption applications are being accepted for Sophie; however, please keep in mind that shehas tested positive for heartworms. This means that Sophie must endure 4-5 months of heartworm treatment before she can go into her forever home. UYR follows the recommended treatment protocol recommended by the American Heartworm Society. Heartworm Treatment is very expensive and will cost approximately $800-$1,000 per dog. Currently, 4 out of the 10 dogs taken in with Sophie tested positive for heartworms. Please consider a donation to help UYR continue to rescue and rehabilitate other dogs with heartworms.

- Please be patient with our process in considering adoption applications for Sophie as our primary interest is supporting her during her heartworm treatment. Once she has completed treatment, she will be altered and receive any additional vaccinations needed. Our primary goal at this time is getting Sophie healthy so that she can continue to enjoy a wonderful life in a loving, forever home.

- UYR is reaching out to our friends, supporters and generous donors in the hopes of raising the thousands of dollars it will cost our group to get Sophie healthy, as well as the 9 other dogs from the same hoarding/backyard breeding situation. They not only need to have their vaccinations updated, be neutered or spayed and have extensive labs, but they also need to emotionally heal from years of neglect. For the ones like Sophie that are HW+, they will soon begin treatment which will last 4-5 months. If you have been moved by Sophie's story and her courage and resilience, please consider making a donation to UYR to cover vetting expenses and support our organization as we begin the long process of rehabilitating these precious little dogs.

UPDATED BIO 04/20/2018: Sophie continues to do well in her foster home in spite of several on-going medical issues. In addition to being HW+, Sophie also has a Grade I/VI heart murmur which is mostly insignificant, but should be monitored. She is also being treated for a UTI due to her frequent urination and dribbling, bless her heart. She will have a dental once she is healthy enough to do so and will likely lose all her teeth due to sheer neglect.

There is no doubt that this precious little girl has endured a lot of emotional trauma and neglect in her life. It has been determined that she does have impaired hearing. Sophie also has bilateral cataracts but is able to see shadows and gets around the house just fine. Foster Mom said that this lovely girl is a total lovebug and a sweetheart. Once she has gone through her HW treatment and had a dental, she will be ready for adoption. Sophie’s needs are but a few - she needs love and a stable home who understands her special needs and will adore her – forever and ever.

PLEASE NOTE the following special circumstances:

- Adoption applications are being accepted for Sophie; however, please keep in mind that shehas tested positive for heartworms. This means that Sophie must endure 4-5 months of heartworm treatment before she can go into her forever home. UYR follows the recommended treatment protocol recommended by the American Heartworm Society. Heartworm Treatment is very expensive and will cost approximately $800-$1,000 per dog. Currently, 4 out of the 10 dogs taken in with Sophie tested positive for heartworms. Please consider a donation to help UYR continue to rescue and rehabilitate other dogs with heartworms.

- Please be patient with our process in considering adoption applications for Sophie as our primary interest is supporting her during her heartworm treatment. Once she has completed treatment, she will be altered and receive any additional vaccinations needed. Our primary goal at this time is getting Sophie healthy so that she can continue to enjoy a wonderful life in a loving, forever home.

- UYR is reaching out to our friends, supporters and generous donors in the hopes of raising the thousands of dollars it will cost our group to get Sophie healthy, as well as the 9 other dogs from the same hoarding/backyard breeding situation. They not only need to have their vaccinations updated, be neutered or spayed and have extensive labs, but they also need to emotionally heal from years of neglect. For the ones like Sophie that are HW+, they will soon begin treatment which will last 4-5 months. If you have been moved by Sophie's story and her courage and resilience, please consider making a donation to UYR to cover vetting expenses and support our organization as we begin the long process of rehabilitating these precious little dogs.

INITIAL BIO 04/12/2018: Sophie is one of 25 dogs pulled by a sister rescue group from a horrendous hoarding/backyard breeding situation today. She is one of the 10 dogs that UYR was able to bring into United Yorkie Rescue. All of these dogs were terribly neglected and medically-needy and were all living in an unsafe, unsanitary and over-crowded home with very little human interaction. All of these dogs appear to be very sweet and docile, even though many of them may have hidden medical issues that we are not yet aware of.

PLEASE NOTE: Sophie had her first vet check, and sadly - she tested positive for heartworms. This means that Sophie must endure HW treatment that is very hard on any dog, and it will be even harder since Sophie and the other dogs rescued are currently all in poor physical condition. She will be in her foster home for up to 4 months while she is undergoing HW treatment. It is hoped that none of the other dogs from this backyard breeder test positive for heartworms. So far, 4 out of the 10 dogs from this neglectful situation have tested positive for heartworm disease. Prayers are appreciated and donations will be gladly accepted.

Sophie and the other precious little dogs did not come with any vetting information, and all need to be altered. They are all in poor condition, and many will need longer to recuperate from the horrible neglect than others. All have rotten mouths and most of them will likely lose all of their teeth. UYR is committed to caring for these dogs and providing them with a safe, compassionate and loving foster home, while at the same time letting them know the life ahead of them will be full of wonderful things.

UYR is reaching out to our friends, supporters and generous donors in the hopes of raising the thousands of dollars it will cost our group to make sure all of these dogs’ medical needs are taken care of, as well as their emotional needs. If you have been moved by Sophie's story and her courage and resilience, please consider making a donation to UYR to cover vetting expenses.


To date we've spent $979.27 on Sophie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $243.65 in donations.
Please donate!

Sweet Puppy Zoey
Florida
Zoey

Puppy Zoey was born in the early morning hours on 04/21/2018 to momma Lydia. Zoey currently weighs 1.79 lb. Zoey is being fostered in Bunnell FL. Only Florida residents will be considered for adopting Zoey and her sisters. No out-of-state adoption applications will be considered.

UPDATED BIO 06/05/2018: Sweet Lydia was one of 26 dogs pulled recently by a sister rescue group from a horrendous hoarding/backyard breeding situation. She is one of the 10 dogs that United Yorkie Rescue brought into our group. Lydia gave birth to 3 healthy puppies only a few days after arriving in her UYR foster home. UPDATE! Check out a video of Lydia and her precious puppies here: https://youtu.be/BRpIlpzU3BI

Puppy Zoey now has a voice of her own and here’s what she had to say recently:

Hi I’m Zoey and Lydia is my Momma – she is a very good momma, too. I am 6 weeks old and weigh 1.79 pounds. I’m currently the smallest of momma’s puppies, but I’m catching up quickly. I tend to be more on the quieter side than my sisters Bailey and Cali. I like to hang back while they are out running around – and around – and around. I still like to play with them and the older dogs in Foster Mom’s home. We have loads of fun.

I have a favorite toy and I like to play with that a lot. Oh, and I really love to sit with my Foster Mom – I am always giving her lots and lots of kisses and she gives them right back to me. Sweet! She gently holds me and whispers to me and I fall asleep in her arms. Ahhhhhhhh, life sure is good.

I’m growing up fast, so please stay tuned to hear about my latest antics, and please read the SPECIAL EXCEPTIONS posted below:

Miloh is Looking for his Forever Family
Georgia
Miloh

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

THANK YOU TO MILOH'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Jennifer Eusner

Updated Bio 6-4-2018: Milo has a birthday coming up soon and he will be 12 years old. He has lots and lots of energy and loves to play tug-of war and fetch with his toys. He has a bit of arthritis but Miloh doesn’t let that hinder him at all, he enjoys riding on a 4 wheeler with foster dad and going for car rides. Miloh also is ready to go for walks with his leash anytime! Miloh enjoys bath time and doesn’t mind getting groomed. Snuggle time is his favorite and he LOVES belly rubs !! He also is very smart and knows the basic commands such as sit and come. He is pretty much housetrained , but wears a bellyband around the house because he gets excited sometimes and pees. Miloh was surrendered by a family who could no longer care for him. He was the only dog in the home and prefers to be the only dog in the home. He needs a stay at home family or a work from home family. Miloh is not a fan of children so he cannot go to a home with any children under twelve, also if they come visit frequently. Miloh also needs a fenced in yard for him to run and play, no electric fence. Miloh deserves a home to live out the rest of his senior years with love and care . He wants to be your best bud is your home the right fit for this sweet boy?

Updated Bio 3/11/2018: Hi every PAWDY! It’s me, Miloh. It has been a while since you heard from me so here I am with an important PUP-DATE. I have had such a great winter! I got to go on a road trip in an RV to Florida with my foster Mom and Dad. It was nice there and much warmer. We even had a Christmas tree in the RV. I made new human friends but the best part was Santa found me in the RV and brought me lots of toys and goodies. You see, I am a very good boy and Santa has been paying attention. He knows I LOVE play time so he mad sure I was well stocked with toys. I am so happy Spring is right around the corner. Foster Mom got me a new Spring cut and I’m ready for warmer weather. I can wait to be outside and playing lots.

I am a really great dog. Sometimes I feel a little sad because my forever human is taking so long to find me. Foster Mom and Dad tell me “ it’s okay Miloh.....your special human is making their way towards you; we just need to be patient.”

My PAWFECT home would be one where I could have a fenced yard since I love to run around outside. I dislike being alone so a stay at home human that I can be a Velcro dog to would be great. I’m very active for 11 and I love to play fetch, tug of war, ride the 4 wheeler with foster Dad, and I LOVE WATER including baths and will hop right in on my own. I also love to go walking on my leash. When play time is done its time for me to pop into the nearest lap for cuddle and kiss time. I have great manners too! I am mostly house trained and I come right away when I am called. I’m so hopeful that my FUREVER PERSON is reading this right now and is making their way to me. I hope the Easter Bunny will skip the basket full of eggs this year and bring me my own special human for Easter instead! If you think you are my PAWFECT match please apply to adopt me today or reach out to my foster Mom for more information at equusjojo@aol.com

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

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


To date we've spent $824.99 on Miloh's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $100.00 in donations.

Oliver IL
Illinois
Oliver

Oliver is a Yorkie mix who is 12-years-old and weighs 17 pounds. He is residing in Beach Park, IL

THANK YOU TO OLIVER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

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

Update Bio. 05/02/18. Hi, I’m Oliver. I’m a yorkie mix, weighing in at just about 20 pounds. They think I’m approximately 11 years old. I’m blind, have a collapsed trachea and a heart murmur, but I am still very lovable and energetic. I have coughing spells sometimes due to the collapsed trachea but mom gives me Benadryl and it helps to relax me and I don’t cough so much. Sometimes I gulp my water and that makes me cough more so mom tells me, “That’s enough Oliver” and I take a break and go back later for more.

I live in Beach Park, IL with my foster family. Two of my fur sisters like me okay but the third one gets very irritated with me because I walk on her when she is lying in her bed in the breakfast area. She is the boss-lady princess and doesn’t like to be messed with. My fur brother doesn’t like me at all and snaps at me when I even walk past him. He thinks he is a little tough guy. Mom tells him to knock it off and be nice but he doesn’t always listen to her.

Mom thinks I would be suited best for a home with probably no other dogs and no small children. Although I get along okay with my fur sisters, when mom takes me to the vet she has to keep a tight hold on me because all the pups want to be friendly and play. I can’t see them so I get defensive and want to attack.

At night, I like to sneak upstairs before everyone else goes up and I curl up on the big doggie bed beside my mom’s side of the bed. If I pretend I’m asleep, mom just lets me stay there all night and doesn’t make me go back downstairs, ha, ha. I’m a pretty good little con man. It’s okay because no matter what I do, mom tells me what a good boy I am and she loves me so much. I really am a good boy, honest.

Although I am very comfortable in my foster home, I am looking for a permanent home with my own family. If you think you might like a little fuzzy boy with lots of love to offer, please contact my foster mom at yorkiefostermom04@gmail .com or visit our website, www.unitedyorkierescue.org

Update Bio. 04/04/18. Hi I’m Oliver. I live in Beach Park, IL with my foster mom, dad, three fur sisters and a fur brother. I’m about 11 years old and because I’m a Yorkie mix, I am larger than the regular Yorkie. I am about 20 pounds which is probably a little heavier than I should be but I do love to eat. Sometimes I walk on the pups as I am blind and can’t see where I am stepping. They get upset with me so Mom thinks it would be a good idea if I went to a home where I am the only dog.

I have a very keen sense of hearing and smell. I follow mom around all over the house and manage the stairs without much difficulty. It takes me a little while because I have to feel where the steps are. I know when I run out of the carpet runner I’m at the top of the stairs and mom keeps a big fluffy doggie bed beside her nightstand that I love to sleep on. I can always find it! I go down the stairs okay too. I have to feel for the steps and I know when I run out of the carpet runner and the touch the wood floor, I’m at the bottom of the stairs. I’m actually a very smart little guy!

I love to be with my people and would make a wonderful companion for someone who is home a lot and able to let me cuddle with them on the sofa.

Mom thinks I probably wouldn’t be a good choice for a home with small children as when I get startled, I sometimes snap and small children would not understand my being blind and sudden moves or touches might startle me.

I have a collapsed trachea but my coughing is much better than it was. If I drink too much water, I start coughing so mom has to tell me, “Enough, Oliver!” I can always go back for more later though.

I am pretty aggressive around my food so mom feeds me away from everyone else. I love walks but sometimes it is hard because of being blind and if I smell other dogs, I get all excited and start coughing and try to rip up the grass. Mom usually takes me where there aren’t any other dogs. When I go to the vet, she keeps me on the short leash and tells all the other pups that I am blind so please stay away.

I am waiting patiently for my forever home. If you think you might like to adopt me, go to unitedyorkierescue.org and complete an adoption form or email my mom at yorkiefostermom04@gmail.com if you have any questions.

Update Bio. 03/07/18. Hi, I’m Oliver! I live in Beach Park, IL close to the Wisconsin border with my foster mom and dad with a fur brother and three fur sisters. I get along with the girls but my fur brother doesn’t like me too much and he will snap at me. I usually just ignore him, but I have snapped back at him to let him know he isn’t the boss.

I am about 11 years old and right at 20 pounds now, so I’m bigger than a regular Yorkie as I am a Yorkie mix. I have a collapsed trachea and I’m blind. The winter months seem to be the worst for the collapsed trachea as I cough more often. I love to be with my people and I know how to find my way upstairs to the bedroom so if mom leaves the gate open, I go upstairs on my own when I get tired at night and curl up on the big doggie bed beside the nightstand. I am pretty good at finding the water bowls too. Once I got trapped under a chair in the breakfast area and mom had to help me get out. She is going to try and get a halo for me so I don’t bump my head into things. I do pretty good getting around unless someone moves a chair or I get disorientated.

Due to being blind, mom thinks a home with no small children would be best for me. If I get startled or accidentally bumped into I sometimes will snap as I don’t know what is going on. For the most part I am very lovable and like to curl up next to my people on the sofa.

I get very aggressive around unfamiliar dogs when mom takes me to the vet so she has to keep a tight hold on me. I’m very friendly to the vet and all the nice people there. I like walks on the leash but I’m not too good at it due to being blind and also I smell other animals along the path and become aggressive. Mom tries to keep walks short as I tend to get excited and that affects my air intake with the collapsed trachea so I start coughing.

I am patiently waiting for my forever home but until then, mom says she will love me and take great care of me because I am a very special little guy and deserve only the best! You can email her at yorkiefostermom04@gmail.com if you want to know more about me.

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

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

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

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

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

Maggie May
Indiana
Maggie May

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

THANK YOU TO MAGGIE MAY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

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

Update Bio. 04/11/18. Hi. Maggie May and I thought we would give you an update on how she is going doing. We just returned from spending the winter in the sunny south. After the neuro tests, it was determined that she has a lesion on the left side of her brain. We are still adjusting her medication.

She also saw a dentist and had 10 rotted teeth removed and a good cleaning. Maggie May could not chew her food and she regurgitated everything she ate. She now is on a diet of soft food. She is a big eater and gaining her weight back.

Oh yes, she has a new haircut, which makes it easier on her, because she doesn’t like the Groomer.

Maggie May is a special needs girl, and probably always will be. She is beginning to show more of her personality to us.

We will check in again soon.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Wrigley
Iowa
Wrigley

Wrigley -Iowa is an adorable 1.5 year old, 4.5 pound little Yorkie Pomeranian mix male being fostered in Central IA.

Initial Bio 06/11/18: Wrigley is an 1 1/2 year old high-energy male Yomeranian (Yorkie Pomeranian Mix). He requires a home with a secure fenced-in yard - no exceptions, as he is a flight risk due to his incredible speed.

Wrigley will also need an active owner/family who is willing to take time to play ball with him, take him for walks and train him.

Wrigley's journey began in Chicago with an owner that unfortunately did not have the bandwidth to spend enough hours providing him with basic training, including housetraining. As a result Wrigley spent many of his hours as a puppy in a crate, and not being well socialized. In fairness to Wrigley, his first owner re-homed him to a kind friend in IN to give Wrigley a better quality of life. Unfortunately Wrigley's high energy and lack of training proved to be overwhelming and traumatizing for the new owner's senior dog. Wrigley's second owner reached out to United Yorkie Rescue with a plea to help find Wrigley with a perfect home.

The best home for Wrigley would be one with an active family, where someone is home on a regular basis and is an experienced owner. The new owners must be willing to continue working with Wrigley to ensure he receives consistent basic training and housetraining, regular walks and doing what Wrigley loves best - playing ball. Enrolling Wrigley in a basic training class would be highly recommended.

Currently Wrigley is being fostered in a home in Central Iowa. Wrigley's foster family is working with him on basic obedience and housetraining. Additionally the foster family is working on food etiquette with Wrigley, eating more slowly and chewing food and to stop stealing food from his foster sisters. He is very affectionate and enjoys playing with "well behaved" children and young dogs.

The new owner must be willing to continue working with Wrigley to master housetraining and basic obedience skills. This will take time and patience, with praise and reward. The ideal home for Wrigley would be one in which his new owner(s) are home most of the day. Wrigley was tearfully surrendered by his previous owners due to not being home enough. Wrigley was having to spend too many hours being crated, waiting for her owners to come home. Wrigley thrives on human contact and is happiest playing as he has a tremendous amount of energy.

Due to Wrigley's unstable home life in a short period of time IL to IN yo IA, Wrigley's foster family will be highly selective to ensure he finds a suitable permanent forever home. Preference for adoption would be within the Central IA region.


To date we've spent $148.00 on Wrigley's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Binx

Binx has a PENDING ADOPTION! Make way for BIG, BOUNCY, BOISTEROUS and BEAUTIFUL BINX; an adorable 2-3 year-old playful jumbo Yorkie who weighs in at a very athletic 15 pounds. Binx is being fostered in Elizabethtown, KY.

Meet Binx, a beautiful jumbo Yorkie boy just waiting to bounce his playful puppy self into the lives of a lucky family. Do you LOVE the Yorkie look but secretly fear their tiny size? Do you long for a Yorkie that is hearty enough for a floor wrestling session or a raucous romp at the park that looks GREAT WITHOUT of a feather boa and does not need to be carried around in a purse? THEN LOOK NO FURTHER because Binx just might be the PAWFECT FUREVER MATCH you are looking for!

Binx was being his handsome, playful self when a good samaritan spotted him, lost, matted, dirty, so gave him a free lift to the shelter. Lucky for Binx, the shelter is a great one who has a wonderful relationship with UYR. We were notified about Binx over a week ago so when his stray hold was up our foster was ready to swoop him up and bust him out of Yorkie jail. Binx a very sweet, very rambunctious and VERY ACTIVE dog. We estimate his age to be 2-3 years old. So far he has had ZERO accidents in his foster home and gets along with humans and fur kids alike. Binx absolutely LOVES to romp and play. He loves his toys and loves fetching. One absolute requirement for Binx is a fenced yard. This pup has loads of energy and needs the space to express and expend it. We think Binx would likely be a great family dog to a family with teenage children. He would also be great for an active single or couple. Binx has been fully vetted including a dental that included removing 6 deciduous baby teeth. Now his adult teeth can finish coming in normally. Please don’t shy away from Binx because he is a big boy! The original Yorkshire Terriers were actually much closer to Binx’s size and were long considered the breed standard. There is even a very large social media following for Jumbo Yorkies too! Binx will give you DOUBLE THE LOVE so please stay tuned for updates and apply to adopt Binx today!

Sweet,beautiful Lexie
Kentucky
Lexie

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

THANK YOU TO LEXIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

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

Updated Bio 1/18/18:

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

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

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

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

12/4/17 Initial Bio

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

Max

Meet Max. Max is a 6-year-old, 16 pound Yorkie boy residing in MA.

UPDATE BIO. 6/6/18 I'm still here in MA. with my brother. Some days it feels like spring and other days are like fall and all rainy. When it's nice out, we go on long walks. There are so many smells and interesting things to see. I get so excited when I see the leash and harness; I just do circles until we walk out the door. My foster Mom has these tiny little birds thats that make this squeaky noise and do zoomies all around us. I just chase them but they are so fast, sometimes there are more than one and they dive bomb and fight over the hummingbird feeders.

My foster Mom calls me her "little Teddy Bear". She say's I'm so cuddly and soft, so if you are looking for your next Teddy Bear, I'm it. Looking forward to hugging my new Mom/Dad and resting my head on your chest. If you think that person is you, just follow the link to complete an application to adopt me. Bark at ya later.

Update bio. 03/09/18. Max here, Tigger's younger brother. I weigh 15 lbs. I also spent the day at the Vet and am now up to date with vaccines, teeth cleaning and neuter. The Vet was so amazed at our teeth and how good they look, cause they say us Yorkies are known to have difficulty with healthy gums and teeth. I had to wear the "cone of shame" much longer than Tigger, I just couldn't leave that ouchy alone. Did you know I can go outside when ever I want! FM has a big fenced in yard that I just love, I can run run run. I let FM know when I have to potty, she says I'm such a good boy. I love to play with my brother Tigger. We run and wrestle with each other and play tug of war with "Tigger pull toy", FM thinks it so funny when I pull Tigger across the tile floor when we play with the pull toy. Well FM is cutting up Apples, and I love them.

Please consider adopting 2 cute boys with a lot of personality.

Initial Bio. 02/15/18. Hi I'm Max, I can with my brother from another mother, Tigger. The ride was a long one but I took a couple of naps along the way. I take a little while to warm up to people. This is the first time I've been away so I'm a little confused and anxious. FM and FD has promised to take good care of me and they said they will find the right loving family that will take care of me furever. I love, love, love playing outside, FM has a big fenced in yard that I can roam around and check out all the smells. Well i'll bark at ya later, gotta run.

Tigger

Meet Tigger. Tigger is a 8-year old, 6 pound Yorkie boy residing in MA.

THANK YOU TO TIGGER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Trula Montgomery

UPDATE BIO. 6/6/18- Tigger here in MA. with my brother Max. My FM and FD are in the hunt for missing pens that my FD uses for his puzzles. They can't find them! They have looked under their bed and the sofa and still can't find them. I will never tell where I keep my secret stash. They call me a Dickens and the Ever Ready Bunny. If I have a chance to steal toilet paper roll or tissue, I will run away with it and shred it to pieces. When we go for a walk, I'm the leader of the pack, being so small I have to triple my steps to the rest of the pack just to stay first in line. Thats me: small and mighty.

I love teasing my brother just to get him to chase me, sometimes I bite his legs just to get him to play, then we go around and around the yard/house. Sometimes we play with our "Tigger pull toy" and my brother Max will drag me around the house, but I don't let go, FM just laughs. FM says i'm quit a character, what ever that means.

It's been a little cool here at night, so I like to burrow under the covers. FD couldn't find me the first time I did this and was looking all over for me. He woke up FM and said he couldn't find Tigger. I popped my head out so he could see me. He just laughed. I follow my FM and FD around all day and I like to snuggle next to FM on the couch at night.

If your looking for a companion that won't let you out of your sight and enjoys having 2 playful, loving pups, Max and I will be very happy to be apart of your family.

Update Bio. 03/09/18. Tigger here. I've settled in MA. I had a Vet visit that lasted all day. I got my vaccines, teeth cleaned and neuter. I had to wear this collar thing for days. FM would laugh at me because every time she would put it on me, I didn't think I could move and would bark till she picked me up. So glad that is over. The weather here in MA. has been crazy. We've played in the snow and gone on nice walks in 60 degree weather. The best walk was at the beach; The smells there were amazing. I'm 5.5 lbs and would benefit from a fenced in yard and respectful children, I love FM's grandchildren, they play tug of war with my little Tigger toy. I'm ready to move on with a new family and my brother.

Initial Bio. 02/15/18. Hi I'm Tigger, I made a long trip from NY to MA on Sunday, I looked out the window most of the ride but it was dark and rainy and my FM and FD was wondering what I could see, BOL. I'm not sure why I'm in this new place, they say I'm an owner surrender. I had a rough first night but my second day/night was much better. I have a pack to hang around with and a big yard, thats fun. I'm 8 y/o and about 7-8 lbs., I'm spunky, like to play with a small tennis ball and tug of war. I also love to be held.

Kermit
Ohio
Kermit

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

THANK YOU TO KERMIT'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Trula Montgomery

Update 6/6/18: Kermit is doing well with other dogs as long as she is fed separately. She is growing her hair back except for a few spots which might never fully fill in. She has a ton of energy and loves to go for walks. Kermit is not housetrained. She will hold it during the day when she is in her room (bathroom) but seems to have a problem when she gets over excited. At night she wears diapers and for the most part they will be dry in the morning. She will do best in a home where someone is with her most of the time and can help with house training. She loves to sit out in the sun so she has t shirts to wear to prevent her getting sunburned. She is on a chicken/grain free food to help with any allergies and she really loves food. All treats and food have to be locked up safe :) to prevent her "helping herself". She does not beg at the table. She loves to sit on the couch or chair with you and just chill.

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

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


To date we've spent $576.55 on Kermit's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $20.00 in donations.

Update 6/4/18

Took our little guy to Blue Pearl Vet Specialist to see his surgeon Dr. Au. We did xrays and not the news we were hoping for - His bone is not healing, it is actually deteriorating. We did not get to him quick enough. So we have made the decision to go ahead and amputate his leg. His surgery is scheduled for tomorrow. But no sadness here !! We are SO excited for BB to begin his new life !! This little guy is so happy, loving and resilient - There will be NO stopping him <3

Update 4/27/18

Our little guy is doing wonderful !! Putting weight on his leg and actually using it to walk. The only difficult part is keeping this active, fun, playful precious boy still !!! He is on "bed rest" as per doctors orders so his leg can properly heal. Our next appt to see the surgeon is May 9th. We will get x-rays to see how the bone is healing and fingers crossed schedule to get is "fixator" removed. Thank you for your continued support and for keeping BB in your thoughts and well wishes...

Update 03/21/18

Today was Binkley Buttons one week follow up appointment at Blue Pearl Vet Specialist and things are going wonderful –

Bandages were removed and x-rays reviewed with the surgeon, Dr. Au. He shared that they actually used bone from a donor for our little guy, due to the infection and bone deterioration that had already set in. The red circle in the x-ray picture shows where donors bone fragments were used. The -xray also shows the extend of the external fixator that was put in place.

So as per Doctors order, 8 weeks of crate rest, continued medications 3 times daily, daily cleaning to ensure no external infection and lots of love. Scheduled follow up appt in 2 weeks. We can not wait to see the obstacles this special little guy will overcome !

If you would like to donate to Binkley's medical expenses please click on the link "DONATE" below !

Initial Bio 3/14/18: Little “Buttons” was hit by a car and taken in for emergency care. The Vet said his leg had been badly fractured and several puncture wounds suggested he was hit by a car or possibly attacked by a larger animal. He was initially placed on pain medication and antibiotics. UYR was asked to step in to help this sweet boy to ensure he received the best care possible.

We immediately took him to a specialist and were presented with two options for his leg. The first option is amputation and he would probably be fine as a little tripod. However, being young the surgeon feels that if we act quickly he can repair his leg with a plate and screws to give Buttons a great chance to live happily as a 4-legged dog.

So with additional consultation we have decided to repair his leg, which will be costly, and to do so we must act quickly. We were able to get him schedule for his surgery TOMORROW. We are stepping out in faith for Binkley Buttons and we know you will help us! For donations please click on the DONATE button below. No amount is too small - Thank You!

Adorable Buddy Boy

Buddy Boy wants to Play!
Tennessee
Buddy

Buddy Boy is an adorable 2-year-old, 11 pound Yorkie boy being fostered in Murfreesboro, TN.

Meet Buddy Boy, our newest Tennessee heart-throb! Unbelievably, this precious guy was left at a shelter by his former owners. On his shelter turn-in form Buddy Boy’s owners said he is great with kids, other dog and cat friendly, playful, sweet, submissive, crate trained, leash trained and has no health or behavioral issues. I don’t know about you folks but in our book this means that Buddy-Boy is pretty much a PERFECT dog! Poor Buddy Boy must have been wondering what he did wrong to land in the shelter but he didn’t have to stay there long because when we got a call about him his UYR guardian angel went and scooped him up like a Momma bird who’s chick fell from its nest. No way was this sweet boy going to spend a single night in doggie jail! What’s more is that Buddy Boy is up to date on his care and ready to find his perfect forever home. At 11 pounds, Buddy Boy is the perfect “fun-size” pup and would be a great family dog to a home with school aged or older children. In fact, he’d be a great dog for just about anyone. Buddy Boy has just landed in his foster home but so far he has been an angel and has been on a walk with his neighbor dogs and is getting along great with his foster siblings. Stay tuned for updates but if you believe you are Buddy Boy’s perfect forever human get your application in soon because this PAWFECT POOCH will not last long!


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

Dolce McSnuggle Bug

Dolce has a PENDING ADOPTION! Dolce is a 6-year-old, 4.8 pounds, Yorkie boy being fostered in Clarksville, TN.

6/19/2018 Initial Bio

Say hello to 4.8 pounds of pure sweetness !! Unfortunately this tiny guy was given up by his owners because they were unable to give him the attention and love he needs. But no worries now !! He is the most gentle, most loving boy you will ever meet. He loves to just hang out with his person, mostly on your lap with lots of snuggles and kisses. He actually lays his head on your shoulder just to be close to you. And he always lets you know when he needs to go outside and ago potty. He is a little scare of loud noises but that does not stop him from going on walks exploring the outside, so curious of all his new surroundings. Due to his small size he would do better with a family who have older children or a retired couple that are looking for a perfect companion.

Ernie

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

THANK YOU TO ERNIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Jan Hobbs, Jan Hobbs

Updated Bio 6-3-2018: Ernie is an 11-year-old, 14 pound Schnorkie (Schnauzer/Yorkie). Ernie has been in his foster home for an entire year! This sweet boy lived 10 plus years in a puppy mill. Ernie is a gentle timid soul and a very handsome boy. He is not aggressive at all, he is just scared. He loves being around other dogs because they seem to “get him” and this gives him comfort. Ernie has the doggie version of PTSD from all his years in the puppy mill and he probably always will. He has made great strides in his foster home since he arrived but he still has issues that make most adopters pass him by. Ernie will probably never be the lap cuddler that most Yorkie lovers are seeking. While he loves other dogs, he is still mistrustful of new humans and they scare him so he will stiffens up while being petted until he gets to know them. He simply can’t help it and we know for certain the humans at the puppy mill treated him very cruelly. So after 10 years in a terrible place, poor Ernie now has to learn at an older age that not all humans are bad; in fact some humans are very good. Ernie enjoys being in his home as this is a place he knows he is safe. He dislikes leaving home and going for car rides but tries to be a brave boy for his trips to the Vet and groomer. He will go potty on pads and outside, he still marks around the house if not watched. He does enjoy sleeping with his human and this seems to be the time that it is okay with Ernie to be close to them. He dislikes crating very much since he lived his whole life in a cage.

Ernie is very much in need of a forever home where he can be loved by some very special adopter. Ernie’s forever human needs to be one who will be very patient and loving with him and let him “come around” on his own schedule. They need to be okay with giving him his anxiety medication each day for the rest of his life. They need to have at least one other easy going adult pup for Ernie to best friends with. A fenced yard is also a must and he can never, ever again be confined to a crate. Ernie’s forever person needs to be one with a heart for saving the imperfect, broken ones that have never truly had a chance to be loved and be a normal dog. They must see that Ernie is perfect in his imperfection and love him for being Ernie. We just know that Ernie’s person is out there. If Ernie’s story tugs at your heart strings and you think you might be Ernie’s human hero then PLEASE apply to adopt him today or email his foster Mom with questions at mandymsmith1@yahoo.com.

Update 4/7/18

UYR friends, please help us share Ernie’s story so we can help him find his FUREVER home. On May 24th, sweet little Ernie will have been with us in his foster home for an entire year! This sweet boy lived 10 plus years in a puppy mill. All puppy mills are bad but Ernie’s was REALLY bad. So much so that it received coverage on TV stations and multiple newspapers that gave sad details about the terrible situation that Ernie and 300 other animals was rescued from. It makes us very sad to think about how bad Ernie’s life was all those many years so we try to focus on the positive: Ernie was rescued and he is SAFE. UYR took multiple dogs from this case but Ernie has been with us the longest and Ernie deserves to have a forever home. He has watched many, many other dogs get adopted from his foster home but sadly the right home for Ernie has not yet been found. Ernie is a gentle timid soul and a very handsome boy. He is not aggressive at all, he is just scared. He loves being around other dogs because they seem to “get him” and this gives him comfort. Ernie has the doggie version of PTSD from all his years in the puppy mill and he probably always will. He takes medication each day and that has helped him greatly. He has made great strides in his foster home since he arrived but he still has issues that make most adopters pass him by. Ernie will probably never be the lap cuddler that most Yorkie lovers are seeking. While he loves other dogs, he is still mistrustful of new humans and they scare him so he will stiffens up while being petted until he gets to know them. He simply can’t help it and we know for certain the humans at the puppy mill treated him very cruelly. So after 11 years in a terrible place, poor Ernie now has to learn at an older age that not all humans are bad; in fact some humans are very good. Ernie takes medication daily to help with his anxiety and it does help him. He seems to know this and takes it like the good boy that he is. Ernie enjoys being in his home as this is a place he knows he is safe. He dislikes leaving home and going for car rides but tries to be a brave boy for his trips to the Vet and groomer. He will go potty on pads and outside but if he gets scared he will occasionally still poop inside. These episodes are much less frequent than they used to be. He does enjoy sleeping with his human and this seems to be the time that it is okay with Ernie to be close to them. He dislikes crating very much since he lived his whole life in a cage.

Ernie is very much in need of a forever home where he can be loved by some very special adopter. Ernie’s forever human needs to be one who will be very patient and loving with him and let him “come around” on his own schedule. They need to be okay with giving him his anxiety medication each day for the rest of his life. They need to have at least one other easy going adult pup for Ernie to best friends with.

If Ernie’s story tugs at your heart strings and you think you might be Ernie’s human hero then PLEASE apply to adopt him today or email his foster Mom with questions. We are so hopeful that Ernie will spend his one year Rescue anniversary in his FUREVER home.

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

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

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

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

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

Now after two months....

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

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

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

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

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

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

THANK YOU TO HOPE's RESCUE ANGELS!

Trula Montgomery, Sheryl Martin

Update 05/18/2018

I have had a pawesome week! I got to visit another foster mom this week and spend time with her pack Bert, Ernie, Gizmo, Sadie, Coco, Cooper Joe, and Toot Toot and of course they all love me because I’m so special. I love to play with them… Cooper Joe and I have become very good friends. Lots of people come in and out and they all let me give them tons of kisses. Sometimes I do like to have my private time and they let me be myself, if I need to spend a little time alone I just go under the couch until I am ready for more play time. I have been doing really good with my potty training or at least that’s what they tell me. I am still looking for my perfect home… So if you have lots of love and attention to give me but can also let me have my private time just fill out an application or if you would like to donate to my care please click on the PayPal button below.

Update 05/07/2018

Hope is doing very well in her foster home. She recently went to a baseball game and had a ball she loved being at the park and exploring all the new smells. She is still dealing with her fear/anxiety issues. She is very shy and likes to spend time alone… you know the saying “let sleeping dogs lie…” well when she is asleep or off to herself it is best to leave her alone, however when she wants to play she is feisty and loving and wants all of your attention. She continues to make tremendous progress but she will need a very patient adopter that is willing to let Hope be Hope and come around on her own schedule. She still does not like to be carried and she will wiggle and squirm until she gets free. Hope is not completely leash trained but is doing much better, house training is another story she is very stubborn like most yorkies. She is all puppy and likes to chew things if not closely supervised. We still feel Hope would do best in an active adults only home where she would get lots of attention and her owner has the time and patience to continue to work with her. She continues to gain trust and know that she is safe and loved we are taking applications for her. If you would like to help us with Hope's ongoing care please click the PayPal button below and Thank You!

Update 4/7/18

Hope is doing very well in her foster home. She definitely has fear/anxiety issues which is why the precious girl landed in rescue. She was shuffled around from owner to multiple rescue groups and this has not helped her. She was very shy and retreating and did not want anyone to pet her or approach. After trying some medications to help her (they did not), Hope's foster Mom and her Vet agree that the only medication that is effective in getting Hope through her fear is "tincture of time" and "bottles of patience and love." She has made tremendous progress but she will need a very patient adopter that is willing to let Hope be Hope and come around on her own schedule. She does like attention and seeks it out. She can be loving on her own terms but when she wants to be left alone it is best to do just that. She does not like to be carried at all and she will wiggle and squirm until she gets free. Hope is not leash trained or house trained as of this writing but she is working on those behaviors in her foster home and making progress. Like most puppies, she will also chew things if not closely supervised. Hope would do best in an active adults only home where she would get lots of attention and her owner has the time and patience to continue to work with her. She does like to sleep in the bed with you and will snuggle once she gets the hint it’s bed time. Hope is just a puppy who got off to a rough start in life and she has her entire life ahead of her to learn how to be a normal dog. We would like her to stay in her foster home a bit longer before she is ready to be adopted so that she can continue to gain trust and know that she is safe and loved but we are taking applications for her. If you would like to help us with Hope's ongoing care please click the PayPal button below and Thank You!

Initial Bio 3/11/18: Hope/Daisy was transfered from a shelter then a rescue to Animal Rescue Corp. This poor baby has been in shelters for 3 months and has a major lack of socialization. Hope/Daisy has major anxiety issues and is very fearful United Yorkie Rescue is slowly working with her to gain a trust of humans. She is the most adorable, happy little girl, when she is not anxious. Stay turned for updates. Applications are not being taken at this time. Hope/Daisy is being fostered near Clarksville, TN. Please feel free to donate to her care if you like to help this baby get adopted!

Scrappy
Tennessee
Scrappy

Scrappy is an 11-year old, 5 pound senior Yorkie fellow being fostered in Nashville, TN

THANK YOU TO SCRAPPY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Trula Montgomery

Update 6/17/18

Scrappy is looking for the perfect forever family! He needs a family that understands that while he is an adorable, playful pup, he is also an older guy that has had it rough. Scrappy was rescued from a shelter 10 years ago, but unfortunately his family was unable to care for him, so he ended up back in the same shelter. He wasn’t there for long, because his nice foster family took him in! Since then, he has been enjoying playful games of fetch, belly rubs and lots of treats. He gets extra treats, because he’s still underweight. Scrappy is easily startled by noises, including, but not limited to: the washing machine, thunderstorms and fireworks. He needs a family that is patient and understanding. Scrappy doesn’t always do a good job of letting his foster mom know he needs to go out to potty, but that’s okay, because she understands accidents happen. Scrappy loves cuddles, naps and giving kisses! Scrappy is going to see a doggy to ophthalmologist soon, because he has corneal edema. If you are interested in learning more about Scrappy reach to his foster mom at NashvilleTNYorkie@gmail.com

Update 05/18/2018

Hey folks, Scrappy here I wanted to tell you about my adventures this past week. My foster mom and dad went on vacation and unfortunately I could not go with them… BUT I got to have a vacation of my very own. I went to stay with another UYR foster mom and dad. We had so much fun. I got to meet all kinds of new people and animals. I was treated like a Royal… just call me Sir Scrappy… they have lots of furbabies and I made friends with all of them…. Bowser the basset hound also Harley, Roxie, Millie and Hope all yorkies like me. We had so much fun… we got to run in the yard roll in the grass and lounge on the deck in the sun. We went to a kids baseball game and lots of people were there I was very well behaved and all the kids wanted to pet me and love me that was really cool… I even chased a mouse… who needs a cat with me around LOL… BUT what I really want is a family of my very own. If you think I would be the perfect fit for your family please complete an application. I have lots of love to give and we could have so much fun together.

Initial Bio 4/7/18

Meet Scrappy our latest senior heart throb. Scrappy was adopted from a shelter 10 years ago but sadly returned to the same shelter when his owner could no longer care for him. He was in rough shape; a matted mess and badly in need of a dental. Scrappy had to be shaved to the skin to rid him of his mats but in a month or so he will look like the beautiful boy he already is on the inside. After a much needed dental he now has fresh breath and is very kissable. He is also way too skinny at 5 pounds and should be closer to 7 pounds at a healthy weight. So far this boy is sweet, playful and acts nothing like an 11 year old dog. He goes outside to the bathroom and is getting along with his fur siblings. Scrappy has chronic dry eye and will need eye drops for the rest of his life. He has just arrived in his foster home so stay tuned for updates!

Arthur
Texas
Arthur

Arthur is the sweetest little 8 pound, 4 year old boy being fostered in Gainesville, TX. He is heartworm positive and is undergoing treatment.

THANK YOU TO ARTHUR'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Tracy Mill, Tracy Mill, Teresa Beament

UPDATE BIO. 5/25/18. Arthur had his first heart worm injection today. This is sooo painful for these babies as it is injected very deep into the muscle by the side of the spine. He is home and very sad, getting lots of love ❤ He will be on steroids for the month until he returns back on June 25th and 26th for back to back final injections for the cure.

Please, keep this baby in your prayers. Remember too, these procedures are fairly expensive for the United Yorkie Rescue, www.uyr.us, so any donations you are able to make are so greatly appreciated! Bless you all!

UPDATE BIO. 04/26/18. Sweet little 4 yr old Arthur had his neuter today and is ready to get all snuggled up by his foster momma. We also found out we are HW+ too 😔. Has not been a good day for the fosters in my care! Prayers will be needed and more to come. His treatment plan begins today! He will have his monthly advantage multi and start a month of antibiotics to prepare him for the 1st shot on May 25th. We also found a mass we will address and have removed.

Arthur had his mass removed and biopsy sent to A&M. This biopsy came back as non cancerous and more of an autoimmune responsive mass. All in all, great news!

INITIAL BIO. 3/30/18: Precious 4yr old Arthur came to us after he was found wandering for over 2 weeks. He was turned into a vets office and found to have a chip, but owner stated she had given him away 2 years ago and wanted nothing to do with him...really!! What's the saying, "one man's trash is another man's treasure"... well he is every bit a treasure!

This little 7 lb doll is just so happy and loving and so full of life. He loves to cuddle, sleep in the bed with his foster mom, and gives the sweetest kisses. Arthur loves to play with his fur siblings, loves all people and gets along with cats as well.

Sadly, since this sweet baby was treated as trash, we are in the process of treating Arthur for heartworm due to his neglect. Once his treatment is complete, he will be so ready for his furever home. This angel will surely bless some lucky adopter. If you feel you have that home, please feel free to contact foster mom at yorkiefostertx@gmail.com or visit our website and put in your application found on the left hand side at www.uyr.us.

THANK YOU TO BJ'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Trula Montgomery

Update Bio. 04/09/18. Hi everyone! BJ here, and I am loving my foster home and family. Although I had a tough transition because I missed my Dad, I am settled in now. I went to the Doctor and he pulled 17 teeth and neutered me all at the same time☹. I am now healed and ready for my forever home. I like other dogs as long as they don’t get in my face, but to be honest, I would prefer to be an only fur child. I am potty trained, and I am a lap baby, especially when my Foster Mom is working at her desk. I have such a loving personality, but I can be a bit feisty at times. Can't wait to meet my new Mom or Dad!!!

Initial Bio. 03/05/18. Meet BJ. BJ comes to United Yorkie Rescue via owner surrender. BJ’s Dad moved, and couldn’t take BJ with him. As you can imagine, BJ is sad and misses his Dad. BJ is 9.5 pounds, and 11 years old. More information to come when Foster Mom gets to know him a little better.

Bridget is a sweet 9 year old, 9 pound Yorkie girl who is being fostered in Lancaster, TX.

Update 6/4/18: Bridget had her spay procedure today and a dental too. She came through with flying colors and will be recovering over the next week.

Initial Bio 5/25/18: Welcome Bridget to UYR. She is a very sweet 9 yr old girl who is truly looking for love. Bridget was rescued from a backyard breeder who was selling her at a flea market. She very quickly became attached to her new dad. She followed him everywhere and could always be found right next to him. Unfortunately, her dad works and cannot give Bridget the time she deserves. She is a very sweet and loving girl, she is calm and loves nothing more than to be next to her person. She will be spayed in the next few days however is in great health. Bridget will be looking for someone who is home much of the time. She does not have separation anxiety however desires to make up for lost time in the attention department. She has spent her life with very little affection and no love but all of that changes now. She will need someone with time, love and the willingness to be patient with her she learns to accept all of what she has missed out on. Bridget is 9lbs of pure sweetness. If you have a place in your heart and home for her, please reach out to her foster family at yorkielove0409@yahoo.com or visit our website.

THANK YOU TO COOPER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Lynne Turner, Teresa Beament, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Dana Barao, Karry Rogers, Leslie Corbell, Pam Newell, Mary Cronin, Nhung Le, Teresa Beament

UPDATE BIO. 06/16/2018. My mind has been on this sweet little guy all day today. Tomorrow, Cooper goes for his third tumor surgery and this one could be very dangerous... even more so than the 3lb tumor we have already taken with some of his spleen. This baby is just the most loving, sweetest guy I have ever fostered.

As you can see in the pics, his stomach is carrying another huge tumor along with all the other small ones that will be removed. If possible, United Yorkie Rescue could sure use your help. If you can possibly donate, please go to www.uyr.us, and on the home page at the bottom click "donate"... these babies lives matter, and because of you we are saving them... bless you!

UPDATE BIO. 06/04/18. Cooper is still recouping from his surgery and on Monday he will go again for 6 additional tumors to be removed, a huge lipoma on the entire right side of his body, and to finally have the diseased rotten teeth extracted as well. His initial report from his 3lb tumor was good... not cancer!!

Although this little guy looks a little rough, he will be such a gorgeous little guy once he is healed.. I cannot wait to see this transformation! I am currently fostering and caring for his medical issues. Once healed and flourishing, he will be fostered by Lynne Patterson Turner, where he will be spoiled to amazing health!

Cooper loves to play, is so loving and is just wonderful with all dogs, cats and people. He will be an amazing Yorkie for someone's loving home!

Update 6/1/18: Hooray, we received good news on the biopsy of the 3 pound "tumor". It isn't malignant! Next, we have to remove the tumor on Cooper's side, so please keep praying for this sweet little guy.

UPDATE BIO. 5/16/2018: Cooper is now home recouping from the massive near 3lb tumor removed. This sweetie is extremely emaciated with every spinal bone raised and every bone very prominent. He is currently on a high calorie diet and I cannot wait to see how this little diamond in the rough shows his true shine! He's such a good sweet, lovable boy too. In spite of his pain with surgery, has never had an accident in the home. H he absolutely LOVES toys, and gets along with all the dogs, cat and humans in the home. Please continue to share this baby's story and if possible United Yorkie Rescue www.uyr.us could sure use your help! I thank you and bless you for loving the rescues!!

UPDATE BIO> 5/15/2018: Cooper had his surgery and the vet removed a nearly 3lb tumor and managed to save some of the spleen! Various little skin tumors were removed as well. This tumor is on its way to A&M lab for a biopsy and we hope to have results in next week. Poor Cooper is in a lot of pain and will stay overnight for antibiotics and pain management. If good in the am, he will come home. In 2 weeks we will go in for surgery once again and the huge lipoma, that takes up his whole right side will be removed, along with some other skin tumors and we will address his along with his nasty teeth as well. Keep those prayers coming... they are working!

Initial Bio. 5/14/2018: Hi everyone, meet precious Cooper. This incredibly adorable little guy sure could use some very strong prayers while we work on his issues! Rescued from the shelter that reached out to us at United Yorkie Rescue Monday morning as a stray, one of our wonderful members had spent about 30 minutes playing with this baby while paperwork was completed and as we found he is just the sweetest little man ever!! Besides total neglect seen everywhere, his stomach is so distended with an enormous mass on his spleen that must be about 2lbs, along with a lipoma that's about a pound of weight in itself on his side. He was rushed to my vet and will stay for emergency surgery to address these tumors in the am. This will be a very dangerous surgery, so please let us help him win his life back. Please keep this angel in your prayers this morning as they do emergency surgery around 8am. Thank you everyone ❤

Update Bio. 05/14/18. Hank is doing fairly well. He will get his stiches out this week. We were originally on 6 different meds and have gone down to 4. His leg is still pretty painful but he's getting better each day. In 8 wks we will go back to A&M for I hope his last surgery. This will entail removing the plate and hopefully we will have bone growth at this time! Emotionally, sadly, Hank is still having a very hard time with separatiom. It took me months to start to fix that... I'm back at the beginning and have him back on Prosac as well. This sweet baby is just so loving. He deserves his furever happy and I will be certain he gets that, especially with people that love him like you ❤. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.

5/2/18: Hank pupdate: Hank was seen by the specialists at Texas A&M Vet Hospital and underwent extensive testing again especially due to some Neuro issues, bladder issues and further evaluation of his leg which is very complicated. Hank's femur was shattered in 7 segments... so we have 7 screws along with a plate. The bone around the middle screws is disintegrating. This is either from the body saying we no longer need this bone since we have this plate to provide support, or his bone is just not rejuvenating. Sadly, trying to fix this might take 2 stages. We had 3 options, but bottom line we are choosing to remove the 3 middle screws, pack in bone generating material while keeping the plate secured at the top and the bottom. Also, the surgeon will try to fix the patella. If it's at all possible they may try to remove this larger plate and attach a smaller plate. If not, we will be looking at another surgery again! Surgery will be Thursday morning and Hank will be there until at least Saturday. This is so hard on him emotionally... his separation anxiety is the saddest I have ever witnessed. We'll all be very anxious to get him past this next hurdle and get him home where he can rest and be with foster mom.

Update 3/30/18: From a body full of bruises and broken bones to now. We still have one more hurdle with this adorable little guy and it will require breaking his leg for the final fix. This is almost unbearable for me to fathom after all this sweet boy had been through. Hanks next surgery will be the costliest one after all of his medical and surgeries to date. The ortho center at Texas A&M refer to Hank as a unique case. They will need to remove the plate and screws, rebreak his leg where the deformity is, place a smaller appliance on, repair his locked patella and torn ACL. UYR is looking at a cost of up to $5000. I'm asking, maybe pleading at this point, as I personally have 4 medical rescues in my care, but this baby boy is worth every penny.

Hank still holds emotional scars with his fear of separation, but after all this little man had endured, he is just the absolute most loving baby ever. He will eventually be someone's pride and joy that will be rewarded back with so much love. Please, please donate, share and pray for this little boy. As always, thank you and bless you all!

Update Bio. 03/08/18. We were so blessed to have had the opportunity to get Hank to Texas A&M Small Animal Hospital. There were many more players involved, but I wanted to thank Dr Grimes (Internal Medicine)and Tierney for their constant dedication in diagnosing and helping us get answers for this sweet boy.

Bladder: we are still waiting for bile acids results but we do know Hank does still does have a resistant UTI. Cultures are still growing so in the next few days he will be placed on the proper antibiotic to address this issue. We may have a sphincter issue that is not responding properly causing his dripping, but we believe that by keeping him on Proin along with getting a grip on this UTI maybe his solution. There is a defect in his bladder, but they do not believe it is necessary to do the surgery.

Siezures: We will start Kepra

Leg: Hanks patella cannot be moved and is at a 4 out of 4 so will require surgery. His leg has also healed wrong, so the orthopedic thinks we will more than likely have to remove the plate and screws, rebreak the leg, and put a different plate on in its place. This breaks my heart of course.

I'm waiting for an email regarding his discharge and plans and will address again but i wanted to let you all know about his findings and that we finally have answers. Prayers for this little abused baby ❤😔

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

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

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

Update 11/18/17:

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

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

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

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

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

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

Initial Bio 9/20/17:

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

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

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

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


To date we've spent $12089.99 on Hank's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $9999.99 in donations.

Helen
Texas
Helen

Meet sweet Helen.Helen is an estimated 10-year-old, 10 lb girl being fostered in TX

THANK YOU TO HELEN'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Allison Stevens, Veronica Mercer, Maggie Blake, Rebecca Lansing, Jane St. John, Christine Flaherty, Matthew Scott Gann, John Sauser, Tony Cacioppo, Trula Montgomery, Milagros Toro

6/4/18: Helen has come so far however she is still on her journey to complete physical health. She is a very smart little girl with just the right amount of confidence. The dry infected skin that once covered most of her little body has been replaced with healthy pink skin and even some hair. Recently her progression had slowed down so we visited the doggie dermatologist. We found that she had an infection in her ear canal and a yeast infection that was not responding to the antibiotics that she was taking. We have just made the change and are excited to watch the progress.

It is hard to imagine that Helen’s life was as difficult and painful as it must have been. She loves everything about life, the simplest things make her so happy. She loves to run outside and squint her little eyes at the sun. She loves her people, the other dogs, car rides and most especially dinner time. She is sweet, funny and a joy to love.

On 6/3/18 Helen was just not herself. We got her to the vet quickly and as suspected she had developed an infection in the lining of her uterus. Having been a mill mom we have kept a close watch on her. With the doctor’s recommendation we held off on her spay to let her skin heal however time was up. She came through her urgent spay surgery with flying colors, she even had a good dental while she slept. Her only complaint was that she only got half of her dinner the night of her surgery.

We will continue to make sure that Helen has all the love and care needed to be the best that she can be. If you would like to assist us with Helen’s journey your can visit her on our website.

Update Bio. 4/3/18. Helen is making great progress, both physically and emotionally. She loves hanging with the pack, eating and being near her person. Helen is a very smart little girl, she has learned to go outside for business and then sit for her treat. Helen gets a medicated bath followed by a coconut oil rub down several times a week, and it's paying off. Her hair is starting to grow as her skin gets healthier, and she doesn't itch nearly as much. Helen still has a long road in front of her. Once her skin is healthy, she will undergo surgery to remove several mammary tumors and cysts. Helen's doctors are encouraged by her progress. Hopefully, we will have the sweet girl at her best in no time. Thank you to Helen's donors for being part of her story. She's so sweet and so worth the time and love invested in her. We will keep you posted on her progress.

Initial Bio. 03/07/18. Helen comes to UYR as an abandoned dog used in breeding. She was discarded by her owners when she was no longer of any value to them. She is most likely about 10 yrs old and weighs 9.7lbs.

Despite the fact that her skin is infected and she has lost most of her hair, it is obvious that she is relieved to be in the arms of love and safety. Although Helen is in constant discomfort, she not only wags her tail but she gladly gives the sweetest kisses. Fortunately, she is HW negative and it has been determined that her skin issues are probably untreated infections induced by either fleas or allergies. She has had a full blood panel which will help us to determine next steps. Helen gets along with her new fur siblings and is catching on quickly to the routines. There is a beautiful Yorkie under all of this neglect but Helen will need our help. If you would like to help us help her reach the best life ever please visit our website. We appreciate our donors so much. Without you the Helen's don't ever know love. Thank you for your consideration of becoming part of Helen's happy life.


To date we've spent $1678.11 on Helen's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $550.00 in donations.

Toto
Texas
Toto

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

THANK YOU TO TOTO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Holly Stavis, Dawn Gowen, Sandra Wendt, Ilene Rand, Judith Gobeille, Tony Heath, Angie Cagle, Carrie and Todd Tenpenny and Pam and Scott Cotterell, Julie Wiegert, Irene and Peter Havas, Angie Cagle, Julie Wiegert, Mary Cronin

UPDATE BIO. 05/26/18. Hi everyone. It’s me, Toto! Wanted to let you know how great I”m doing and awesome I feel! My diabetes is under control and my foster mom says you wouldn’t even know I have it since it doesn’t slow me down one bit.

I have discovered the most fun toy; my foster mom says it’s not really a toy but it is to me…… it’s the sprinklers! They come on twice a week at 4:00 a.m. As soon as I hear them start I jump off the bed and run out the doggie door. I try and put my mouth over the sprinkler head but the force of the water makes it difficult. So I usually just end up dripping wet and mom meets me at the door with a big towel. One of these days I’m going to be able to capture that sprinkler head in my mouth, I just know it!

My foster mom’s finance moved in with us. It’s nice having another male in the house that I can bond with. I follow him everywhere. He’s from France and calls me “mom petit chien” which mean “my little dog” in French. I don’t mean to brag but I’m starting to pick up some French; how many bi-lingual dogs to you know? My foster family still laughs at me when I slide around the house on the wood floors. When the hair on and between the pads on my feet starts to get long it makes the floors slippery and my feet sometimes slide out from under me making me wobble. Well, I need to go get ready now, we’re going to the lake! If you are looking for a handsome companion, just follow the link to complete an application to adopt me!

Update bio. 03/07/18. 2/25/18 Update: Toto’s surgery to remove the bladder stones was a success!! He’s back to being his happy lovable self! Removing the stones relieved the pain and stress he must have been feeling and that has helped us get his insulin dosage right and regulate his glucose levels. I’ve been pleasantly surprised by Toto’s reaction to all the rain we’ve received lately. It doesn’t seem to bother him at all. Even in a downpour he goes out the doggie door to pee and hasn’t had even one accident in the house. I’m hoping my other fur baby will learn from him. Although he doesn’t mind the rain I know he’s looking forward to the nicer weather days when we can start the walks again. His favorite path seems to be the trail that starts at the end of our street. Toto sends a heartfelt THANK YOU to those who have donated to his treatment and those that have sent prayers and good thoughts for his recovery.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Chase is Looking for Love!

Adorable Chase
Virginia
Chase

Chase is an adorable 12-year-old, 6.5-pound Yorkie boy being fostered in Richmond, VA.

Initial Bio 6/9/18

Chase came from an owner who had him since he was a puppy who loved him very much. Changes in his owner's life circumstances now dictate that they travel constantly to care for aging parents and other family members. This meant that Chase's life was always in a state of upheaval as he would stay with various friends, family members or be placed in boarding. He began to have anxiety due to all changes in his life and spending so much time alone. His owners knew that this is not a good situation for this senior Virginia gentleman so they very lovingly reached out to UYR for help in finding Chase a forever home where he can have the love, security and consistency he needs.

Chase is a healthy boy except for occasional seasonal allergies that his former owner states are easily managed with antihistamines. Chase has NO TEETH left, so dental care is no longer a concern and he eats just fine without them. He is house-trained and very sweet. Chase does NOT act like a 12 year old dog. Chase still went on runs with his owner and can walk 2+ miles with no problems at all. He acts far more like a puppy than a senior dog and he still jumps up and down off of the bed, couch, car, etc. Chase does not like to travel; most likely because he associates travel with being left without his human. He also dislikes being crated very much for the same reason. Chase's perfect human would be one who likes to stay a home a lot and needs a good snuggle buddy and has a nice comfy lap for Chase to sit in. Belly rubs and walks would be a huge plus.

We would love to find Chase's FUREVER HUMAN quickly so he doesn't have to go through the trauma of adjusting to life in his foster home, then having to readjust all over again in his adoptive home. If you are looking to make a huge difference in the life of this sweet senior boy with plenty of life and love yet to give them please apply to adopt Chase today!

Ozzie
West Virginia
Ozzie

Ozzie and Wally are a bonded pair of Yorkie mixes being fostered in West Virginia. They must be adopted together.

UPDATE BIO. 06/16/18. These boys are pure joys. If foster mom didn't have their birth certificates, she would never guess they are 11 and 13. They have a spring in their steps and just love life. They love exploring the yard and garden. Car rides are a favorite, and walks are a breeze with perfect leash skills. The boys love their crates and are house-trained. But most of all they love to snuggle. They are affectionate and playful and will run to get a hug and kiss. Wally sleeps right by his foster mom and Ozzie is close by. These two boys just got their summer cuts and wow are they handsome!! The groomer loved them with their perfect manners. Wally and Ozzie are small, nine and eight pounds. They are Yorkiepoos with all the fire of a Yorkie and intelligence of a Poodle. They couldn't be cuter.

These boys have been together since Ozzie was brought home as a puppy to two year old Wally. They will only go to a forever home together. Due to their age, a local adoption is best. They are fostered in the four state area close to Washington DC.

Update Bio. 04/09/18. Wally and Ozzie have settled in well at their foster home. They are just a joy to be around. They get along with dogs big and small and they love all humans they have met. They are house-trained, love crates, ride in the car perfectly, and have great manners at home. They are affectionate and love to snuggle. So smart, they do what they are asked to do. They may be senior gentlemen at 11 and 13, but these boys have no problem keeping up with a one year old dog and the bigger dogs. If foster mom didn't have all vet records from birth, she would never believe these boys are seniors. They are in excellent health despite a slight murmur in Ozzie. No medications needed. Wally and Ozzie are looking for a home where they can spend their leisurely retirement years. They like a fenced yard but love walks too. They are very adaptable. These boys have so much love and devotion to give.

Update 2/22/18: Wally and Ozzie have been in their foster home for two weeks. These two boys couldn't be more adorable. Ozzie is a Yorkiepoo, 10 pounds, 11 years old. Wally is a Poodle, 9 pounds, 12 years old. They are super sweet, affectionate, are perfectly behaved, and are just loving life. They are happy and well-adjusted. It's a pleasure to have the opportunity to be loved by these amazing little boys. Ozzie and Wally's ideal home will be calm with no small children. They love exploring in the yard. Both boys appear healthy and they have a nice energy level. They have been loved all of their lives and it shows.

Initial Bio 2/5/18: Wally and Ozzie are two senior boys who have been together for ten years. They found themselves at the shelter when their owner could no longer care for them. They went directly into their foster home where they have been adjusting to their new life. Ozzie is happy and instantly loves everyone. Wally is more reserved. Foster mom let Wally have an open crate and gave him his space. Ozzie never left his side. It took Wally nine days to feel comfortable. At two weeks, he was in foster mom's lap. Wally is now a happy boy like his brother. They both love naps and belly rubs. These boys needs a gentle, caring family. Ozzie and Wally are house-trained, crate trained, and have perfect leash and car skills. Bath time is a breeze. They come when they are called. They like other dogs that are nice. Once Wally warms up and trusts, these two boys will give love, affection, and plenty of kisses and snuggles.

Ozzie has a grade III/IV heart murmur. It is not affecting him.


To date we've spent $65.23 on Ozzie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $10.00 in donations.

Scout
West Virginia
Scout WV

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

UPDATE BIO. 06/16/18. Scout is a sweet little guy that has had a bad start in his short little life. He is afraid of everyone except his foster mom and dad. A behaviorist has concluded that he was abused, and his only defense was to growl and bite to keep everyone away. He is making a few significant strides to feeling safe.

His human sisters can walk by his crate while he is distracted, practicing sit and stay. He doesn't get worried about them. Another exercise is for foster mom to hold him and calm him when others are near. He will now settle down in her arms. Scout is finally improving but he has a long way to go. Oddly, he gets along with all of his foster siblings, from three pounds to sixty pounds.

He couldn't be more affectionate with his mom and dad. He has perfect leash skills, loves being groomed, loves the car, walks, and he adores being outside. He is also house-trained. Scout loves snuggles and kisses. It's just sad that his first year was so bleak. But his future is bright and he will continue to be the happy puppy he has become. Trust will come in time. Only a local adopter can be considered as Scout will need to get to know someone over time. He will not be available for a few months as his little breakthroughs are developing.

Update Bio. 04/09/18. Scout is a beautiful Shorkie, Shih Tzu and Yorkie, puppy. Scout is only available for adoption to someone who will help with his fear issues. He is a year old, house-trained, crate and car trained, and is learning the steps towards his Canine Good Citizen certification. Scout has not been available in the past but we are ready to start working on finding him the right home. Please do not inquire unless you read through his bios and updates. He will also need a home close to his foster. Scout is in Martinsburg WV. His potential adopters can help with his trust issues by meeting at the local park and getting to know him slowly. He needs an adult only home and his ideal new family should have some experience with helping a dog that is fearful learn to trust again. Scout adores his foster mom and dad but will not allow a relationship past his two trusted humans. He loves all of his fur siblings, from three to sixty pounds. He is affectionate and loves life.

Update Bio. 03/05/18 Scout is not available for adoption at this time.

Scout, our little fluffy Shorkie (Shih Tzu and Yorkie), has been settling in at his foster home. He is a happy, healthy 1 1/2 year old puppy who loves life. He is well above average in intelligence, quickly learning his steps to Canine Good Citizen completion. He sits, comes when called, and he will stay. He also does what his foster mom asks the first time she says a command. He will stop playing and stand, he know the term gentle when playing with the tiny ones and mom, and he goes wherever he is asked. He's completely house-trained, loves his crate, perfect in the car, and loves all of his fur brothers and sisters. At night, he couldn't get closer when snuggling foster mom and the orhers sleeping. Perfect, right? Well, not exactly.

Scout had his first session with his behaviorist and it didn't go well. He growled the whole time and could not be consoled. After careful observations, Scout was put back with the other dogs where he immediately calmed down. Then the behaviorist and foster mom had a long talk and a plan was put into place. As mentioned in his previous bio, Scout has a bite history. He was literally hidden in a box in a storage room at the shelter when the director came through, knowing he would be killed. The staff saved this little fluff ball from euthanasia and reached out to United Yorkie Rescue to save his life. We knew this would be a tough case but with Scout, this time we were truly saving a life.

The behaviorist has concluded that Scout has been mistreated, most likely hit repeatedly in his former home. His growling keeps people away. If they stay away, he won't be hit. He trusts his foster mom and dad implicitly, but unfortunately no one else 100% of the time. We have a plan for Scout but it will be a long rehab. He needs to forget his past and trust those around him. He may always only trust a few people. But for now, he is safe, happy, healthy, loved, and because of the efforts of United Yorkie Rescue, alive!

Initial Bio 12/17/17: Welcome little Scout. You will be spending Christmas in your new foster home. Your shelter days are over. Scout is a one year old puppy. He's a little bit Yorkie, Poodle, Shih Tzu, and maybe Maltese. It all adds up to an adorable ten pound ball of fluff. He is just a beautiful little boy.

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

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

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

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

Wally
West Virginia
Wally

Wally and Ozzie are two senior boys being fostered in West Virginia. They are a bonded pair who need to be adopted together.

THANK YOU TO WALLY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Trula Montgomery

UPDATE BIO. 06/16/18. These boys are pure joys. If foster mom didn't have their birth certificates, she would never guess they are 11 and 13. They have a spring in their steps and just love life. They love exploring the yard and garden. Car rides are a favorite, and walks are a breeze with their perfect leash skills. The boys love their crates and are house-trained. But most of all they love to snuggle. They are affectionate and playful and will run to get a hug and kiss. Wally sleeps right by his foster mom and Ozzie is close by. These two boys just got their summer cuts, and wow are they handsome!! The groomer loved their perfect manners.

Wally and Ozzie are small, nine and eight pounds. They are Yorkiepoos with all the fire of a Yorkie and intelligence of a Poodle. They couldn't be cuter. These boys have been together since Ozzie was brought home as a puppy to two year old Wally. They will only go to a forever home together. Due to their age, a local adoption is best. They are fostered in the four state area close to Washington DC.

Update Bio. 04/09/18. Wally and Ozzie have settled in well at their foster home. They are just a joy to be around. They get along with dogs big and small and they love all humans they have met. They are house-trained, love crates, ride in the car perfectly, and have great manners at home. They are affectionate and love to snuggle. So smart, they do what they are asked to do. They may be senior gentlemen at 11 and 13, but these boys have no problem keeping up with a one year old dog and the bigger dogs. If foster mom didn't have all vet records from birth, she would never believe these boys are seniors. They are in excellent health despite a slight murmur in Ozzie. No medications needed. Wally and Ozzie are looking for a home where they can spend their leisurely retirement years. They like a fenced yard but love walks too. They are very adaptable. These boys have so much love and devotion to give.

Update Bio. 02/24/18. Update: Wally and Ozzie have been in their foster home for four weeks. These two boys couldn't be more adorable. Ozzie is a Yorkiepoo, 10 pounds, 11 years old. Wally is a Poodle, 9 pounds, 12 years old. They are super sweet, affectionate, are perfectly behaved, and are just loving life. They are happy and well-adjusted. It's a pleasure to have the opportunity to be loved by these amazing little boys. Ozzie and Wally's ideal home will be calm with no small children. They love exploring in the yard. Both boys appear healthy, and they have a nice energy level. They have been loved all of their lives and it shows.

Ozzie has a grade III/IV heart murmur. It is not affecting him.

Initial Bio. 02/22/18. Wally and Ozzie are two senior boys who have been together for ten years. They found themselves at the shelter when their owner could no longer care for them. They went directly into their foster home where they have been adjusting to their new life. Ozzie is happy and instantly loves everyone. Wally is more reserved. Foster mom let Wally have an open crate and gave him his space. Ozzie never left his side. It took Wally nine days to feel comfortable. At two weeks, he was in foster mom's lap. Wally is now a happy boy, like his brother. They both love naps and belly rubs. These boys needs a gentle, caring family. Ozzie and Wally are house-trained, crate trained, and have perfect leash and car skills. Bath time is a breeze. They come when they are called. They like other dogs that are nice. Once Wally warms up and trusts, these two boys will give love, affection, and plenty of kisses and snuggles.

Avery
Wisconsin
Avery

Meet Avery, a 1.5 year old, 17 pound Yorkie Mix. He is being fostered near Sheboygan, WI.

THANK YOU TO AVERY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Wendy Klinke

UPDATE BIO> 05/28/18. Avery has been with us for 1.5 months, and has settled in with our, and our dogs routine. As of right now, he seems a long way from being ready for his “Forever Home”.

Avery will take a treat from your hand, but then runs back to his safe spot. To us, he is house-trained. He goes out in the morning, after each meal, and before bedtime. He can go a good 5 hours, if you need to go somewhere, before having to go outside...he has gone up to 7 hours. We “do not” kennel or crate him when we leave. He stays in our TV room with our other dogs, and is very content, and happy sleeping next to the others.

Initial Bio 4/17/18: Avery is a 1.5 year old, 17 lb. Yorkie-mix. We do not know what he is a mix of, but he is a very handsome boy. He came from an 80 dog hoarding situation, but despite all that he has been thru, he is starting to trust people.

Avery had his veterinary appointment today and did well. I was able to pick him up and hold him while my husband drove us to the vet. Dr. T, my wonderful veterinarian, was also able to pick him up and examine him.

Avery is great with other dogs. He goes up and down our steps to go outside to potty etc. and when he is done, he runs right back to the door to be let back in. I feel that in a month or two, Avery is going to be a loving companion for someone. Watch for more updates as I get to know Avery better.


To date we've spent $38.00 on Avery's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $38.00 in donations.

MJ

Michael

Michael (formerly MJ) is a 10-year-old, 13 pound Yorkie boy who is being fostered near Madison, WI.

THANK YOU TO MICHAEL'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Trula Montgomery

05/14/18. Update Bio. Hello everyone! Just an update on Michael! He is still looking for his forever home ❤️. Michael is a very healthy 10 year who loves to go for walks, play with toys, cruise around his fenced in back yard, and snuggle with humans. He knows how to sit and shake and takes treats from you so very gently! Michael sleeps with us in bed and is a very good sleeper.

He is very jealous of other dogs and would love to be the only one in your home so a home without other pets would be best. Also do to his love of the outside he must have a fenced in back yard.

If your think your home is perfect for super sweet Michael please go to www.uyr.us and fill out an application I would be happy to answer any questions you have about Michael. 😊

04/18/18. Update Bio. Hello everyone. A little story to tell. Michael has left his previous foster because I had one that needed more attention that Michaels foster mommy was much suited to handle. So yesterday Michael came to stay with me. I have to say I am so in love with Michael. The transition from his previous foster home to mine has gone without a hitch. He has settled in so nicely and he is the perfect gentleman. He gets along with my two Yorkies just fine. He has a nice appetite and is the perfect cuddle bug. He is wearing a belly band these days because his previous foster home had a doggie door which he had no problem using and I’m sure within the next day or two once he learns the routine here the belly band will be adios 😬.

Although he is 10 years of age don’t let that deter you from adopting this sweet fellow. He acts much younger. He still has so much to give and is looking for his forever home Will consider adopting to a home with children over the age of 12 Any questions please feel free to email me at quietcourt2@yahoo.com. To fill out an application to adopt go to www.uyr.us.

03/20/18. Initial Bio. Hello my name is Michael and I’m a 10 year old handsome Yorkie boy. I do have a strong but loving personality. I would love to be the top dog, but will take the role as cuddle buddy also.

My foster home has lots of activity going on almost all the time, and unlike my foster brothers and sister, I don’t bark and cause a bunch of noise.

I’m a good boy with lots of love to share with the right person of family.
