Life is so much fun now that I am a healthy fellow

Brodie and his best friend Toby. We love each other so much
Florida
Brodie

Meet the new and improved Brodie. This beautiful Yorkie mix fellow is almost 6 years old, healthy and happy. He weighs an amazing 8 pounds! Brodie is being fostered in Leesburg, FL.

Due to Covid-19, all Florida foster dogs must be adopted by Florida residents at this time. No exceptions will be made.

THANK YOU TO BRODIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Robert Finamore, Charlene Newbold, Sandy Pagnotta, Jill Schenkel, Robin Taylor, Linda Worsham, Ilene Rand, Maria Scheer, Ami Thomason

Updated bio 6/11/20 We call Brodie our miracle pup. This little guy came to us on May 22nd weighing only 4.5 pounds. He was half the weight he should be. He was nothing but skin and bones. He could barely lift his head, walk, or do anything more than lay in his doggie bed. You could see and feel every bone in his body. He looked like a skeleton. Brodie immediately went to his vet who said he needed to be closer to almost 9 pounds. He was anemic and needed vitamins. For such a sick dog, the good news was that other than the anemia his bloodwork was good. He needed to have available to him all the food he could eat. She suggested puppy food which is higher in calories, so Brodie was given an endless supply of food and wow, did he eat and did he drink. The food was always there for him. At first his stomach rebelled, but as his body adjusted to being nourished and fed again, internally and externally, things became more normal.

Every day we met the new and improved Brodie. It started with him being able to walk steady instead of wobbly on weak legs, next came his tail. For days he couldnt lift it up, then it went halfway up, and finally all the way up, now it wags nonstop. He loves being outside in the backyard with the other dogs, though he ignored them for the first 2 weeks. He went from walking around the yard alone to just a little trot and then he started to run and he can sure run. Then came the day Brodie started to play. He now plays with his foster brother TobyKeith. They have become great friends and really love each other. They run around in the fenced yard, they play tug the toy, and they often lay near or next to each other on the bed.

When we heard Brodie bark, we knew he had a voice and could use it. Brodie loves people and he loves to be with them. He will bark when he meets someone new. But after he gets to know them and sees that they wont hurt him, he is friendly. Brodie gets along great with dogs. He does not seem to like cats, though the closest he has come to a cat is seeing one on the outside of the screened porch, but he barked and barked at it. Brodies house training is still a work in progress.

At first Brodie was fine sleeping in his puppy play pen where food and water were there for him all the time. Then he thought it was a much better idea to sleep with his foster mom and dad. To keep Brodie in the puppy pen, his foster mom waits until he is asleep and the bedroom light is turned off for the night. Then he is put in his puppy pen and will sleep there the rest of the night. Although Brodie is still getting more food per meal, we have cut out the round the clock feedings.

If you wonder why we call Brodie our miracle pup, its easy to understand. This sweet boy went from near death, he wouldnt have made it another week the way he was, to a happy, healthy, playful, loving, friendly, when he gets to know you, amazing dog. If we didnt know he was almost 6 years old we would think he was much younger.

Brody is going to be ready for his forever home in about 2 weeks after his bloodwork and dental. He would love a stay at home most of the time person. Even more, he would LOVE to be adopted with his foster brother puppy, TobyKeith. TobyKeith is an 8-month-old puppy who needs a playful friend and a fenced yard. Tobys separation anxiety is so much less being with his foster brother. Foster mom would give whomever adopted them together a discount on their combined adoption fee. Two for the price of one, could it be any better? Because of Tobys very young age his adoption fee is $700. Brodies fee is $350. If a person is lucky enough to adopt them both the adoption fee would be $850. How great would that be!! Both Brodie and Toby would be okay with well-behaved kids over the age of 12. Please go read about TobyKeith on his Looking for Love bio on our website at UnitedYorkieRescue.org. If you want to have double the kisses, double the love, and double the happiness please consider making Brodie and his brother TobyKeith your forever babies.

Initial bio 5/22/20 Brodie was brought to the shelter clinic for triage and seized by animal control when they saw the condition he was in. His owners had neglected him terribly. He is so severely underweight to the point of being emaciated. He was also infested with fleas all over his body, causing some major hair loss. Brodie is mobile, but because he is so malnourished, he is wobbly and his gait is somewhat unsteady. The shelter gave him a Capstar immediately for the fleas and knew he needed to go to a rescue right away. That is when United Yorkie Rescue stepped in and without question took this tiny, dreadfully thin, fellow into their care.

The first thing Brodie got upon arriving at his foster home was a nice warm bed and a bowl of food. He gobbled that food down in less than a minute. He will be fed small meals several times a day until he is at a good weight. Right now, Brodie is very calm and quiet. It is obvious he doesn't feel very well and has little energy.

Brodie has already seen the vet. He had a complete physical exam, bloodwork, and a check for possible parasites. Brodie is half the body weight he should be. He should weigh at least 8 to 9 pounds. You can see and feel every bone in his body, even his hip sockets are protruding. His rib cage and backbone are visible and you can count every bone. He is being fed puppy food, which is higher in calories than adult dog food and just what he needs. He has luxating patellas on his back legs. Thankfully, he does not need surgery.

Brodie is heartworm and fecal negative and his bloodwork was good, thank goodness. He is anemic and will be on a high dose of vitamins for a least a month or more. Brodie will go back to the vet in a month for a recheck of his weight. His vet would like to see him up to at least 6 pounds by then. We are going to do everything we can to make that happen.

At this time because of his physical condition Brodie cannot be adopted into a home with children.

This little guy seems so sweet. We will do everything we can to take care of him and get him healthy and happy. We plan on having a big party on June 24th to celebrate Brodie turning 6 years old and being a healthy, happy pup. Come back very soon for more on Brodie. And as always, your donations toward Brodies care would be so appreciated. Remember we can't save them without you.

I am a yorkie wannabe - ummmmmm, a parti-poodle mix. I am cute.

I am learning proper puppy manners in my foster home
Florida
Dreyfus

MEET DREYFUS. He is a Parti-Poodle mix puppy who is estimated to be around 2 years old. Dreyfus weighs 12 lbs and is being fostered in Palm Coast, FL. Due to Covid-19, all Florida foster dogs must be adopted by Florida residents at this time. No exceptions will be made.

THANK YOU TO DREYFUS' RESCUE ANGELS!

Debbi Driscoll, David Frischkorn, RoseMarie Yerzy

UPDATED BIO 06/10/2020: Dreyfus found himself in a shelter at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic and was rescued by UYR. He was adopted out over a month ago, but has been returned to us since he needs more work on his puppy manners.

Dreyfus does suffer from separation anxiety. He has been re-evaluated by his veterinarian and has been put on doggie anti-anxiety medicine which appears to be helping. He is working with a trainer to get him the additional help he needs to perfect his Im a good puppy manners. In just a few minutes, the trainer taught Dreyfus the leave it command, so he is smart and very trainable.

We have determined that Dreyfus is only slightly hearing-impaired which is much better than our original thought that he may have major hearing issues. He is a champion snuggler, walks well on a leash, rides well in a car and gets along with the other doggies in his foster home. Bonus - hes almost house-trained.

Just like a human child, Dreyfus has entered the terrible 2's. Dreyfuss perfect home would be a home with an owner that has strong pack leader qualities who will continue with the training that Dreyfus has received from a professional trainer. His perfect home would also have a fenced yard and at least one stay-at-home owner who can continue to work on his puppy manners. Dreyfus is not good with young children or grandchildren.

PLEASE NOTE: NO CHILDREN under the age of 14 years old. No exceptions will be made, so please don't ask.

UPDATED BIO 06/04/2020: Dreyfus is a gorgeous 2 year old 12 lb parti-poodle mix. He found himself in a shelter at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. Dreyfus was adopted out over a month ago, but has been returned to us since he needs more work on his puppy manners.

Dreyfus does suffer from separation anxiety. He has been re-evaluated by his veterinarian and has been put on doggie anti-anxiety medicine. He is working with a trainer to get him the additional help he needs to perfect his Im a good puppy manners.

We have determined that Dreyfus doesnt hear perfectly. His foster mom is working with both verbal and hand signals to teach Dreyfus his commands. He is a champion snuggler, rides well in a car and gets along with the other doggies in his foster home. Bonus, hes almost house-trained.

Just like a human child, Dreyfus has entered the terrible 2's. Dreyfuss perfect home would include a fenced yard and at least one stay-at-home owner who can continue to work on his puppy manners. Dreyfus is not good with young children or grandchildren.

PLEASE NOTE: NO CHILDREN under the age of 14 years old. No exceptions made, so please don't ask.

UPDATED BIO 05/21/2020: Dreyfus was rescued from an animal shelter several months ago. His owners never came for him and when the shelter put out a notice to its rescue partners that they were filling up due to COVID-19, UYR stepped up to rescue Dreyfus even though he was not a yorkie or yorkie mix. Dreyfus was adopted out several weeks ago, but he has now returned to UYR since he needs to get more reinforcement on his puppy manners.

Dreyfus rides great in the car and loves walking on a leash. He also said that Dreyfus loves to snuggle with his people and probably should be in the running for a Snuggling Award. Dreyfus appears to have not had much puppy training by his previous owner(s) and needs some further socialization and training before he will be ready for adoption. He is a smart little boy, so he should learn quickly with positive reinforcement when he exhibits not-so-appropriate behavior.

Dreyfus does have what Foster Mom thinks is separation anxiety, so his perfect home would have at least one stay-at-home parent. A fenced-in yard would be a bonus especially during the house-training process.

PLEASE NOTE: NO CHILDREN under the age of 14 years old. No exceptions made, so please don't ask.


To date we've spent $303.20 on Dreyfus's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $667.70 in donations.

I am such a pretty and sweet girlie
Florida
Kendra

Kendra is 5-1/2 years old and weighs a little chubby 10.3 lbs. She is being fostered in Jacksonville, FL. Due to Covid-19, all Florida foster dogs must be adopted by Florida residents at this time. No exceptions will be made.

UPDATED BIO 07/01/2020: Kendra was initially part of a huge Georgia puppy mill bust 16 months ago. UYR rescued a total of 20 dogs from inhumane conditions where they had lived in small wire crates their whole lives. She spent several months rehabilitating in a UYR foster home and was adopted into a loving home. Sadly, Kendra never really acclimated to life outside the puppy mill where she spent the first 6 years of her life, and suffered severe neglect, both emotional and physical. Many dogs take longer than others to recuperate from the neglectful conditions of a puppy mill.

Kendra was reluctantly returned to United Yorkie Rescue by her previous adoptive parents so that she can receive additional training and guidance in how to become a loving companion dog. She will be shown patience, love, kindness and caring so that she knows she will never be neglected ever again. She will also learn that she can trust people with her comfort and care. She returned to her previous foster home. Kendra remembered this home and within several days she stared to get more comfortable with the house and people. She has improved with some behaviors, but retains the more prevalent puppy mill behaviors and fears, such as excessive fear of loud noises (eg. storms, vacuums, fireworks) - you get the picture. Kendra also reacts negatively with sudden movements. Her favorite place for now is her crate where she sleeps at night and when loud noises are heard. During the day she will use the doggie beds. She is beginning to come towards her foster and progress is slow. Kendra is house-trained if taken outside frequently. She requires a fenced in yard as she is fearful of the leash.

Kendra saw the doggie doctor a few days ago and he was happy with her progress compared to her initial visit 1 ½ years ago. She came out of her crate and was sitting on his lap while he talked with me on the phone. Upon exam, the vet believes Kendra is younger than we originally thought. He believes she is probably closer to 5-1/2 years old! That could be related to her condition at the time of the initial exam. She weighs 10.3 lbs. which is a bit too much and may be contributing to the luxating patellas. Her vaccinations were updated and she also had labs done, and they were perfect. She is being started on medication to help with her anxiety issues. She will need a few weeks of medication management to find the best dosage.

Kendra needs a special person that has a fairly quiet household and patience as her forever parent(s). She will buddy with another small dog but she is not into playing or toys. She is also fine with cats. She will allow a person to pick her up on her terms and will lie calmly near them. She is not a dog that will snuggle since she never had that in her previous puppy mill life, but that could change. Kendra resent the leash and only time will tell if she will get over that behavior, so that is why a fenced-in yard is a must for her. Kendra is a sweetie, but needs a very special person that understands behaviors of former puppy mill dogs. Kendra needs several weeks of medications before she will be ready to be adopted. Are you that special person? If you are, Kendra would like to hear from you. If not, please visit the Looking for Love page on our web site for other available dogs.

INITIAL BIO 06/22/2020: Kendra was initially part of a huge Georgia puppy mill bust 15 months ago. UYR rescued a total of 20 dogs from inhumane condititons where they had lived in small wire crates their whole lives. She spent several months rehabilitating in a UYR foster home and was adopted into a loving home. Sadly, Kendra never really acclimated to life outside the puppy mill where she spent the first 6 years of her life, and suffered severe neglect, both emotional and physical. Many dogs take longer than others to realize that they no longer have to go hungry for days on end, or sleep on the unclean floor on a wire crate where the excrement and urine of the dogs stacked above them will fall on them.

Kendra has been reluctantly returned to United Yorkie Rescue by her adoptive parents so that she can receive additional training and guidance in how to be a loving companion dog. She will be shown patience, love, kindness and caring so that she knows she will never be neglected ever again. She will also learn that she can trust people with her comfort and care. Kendra has a warm comfy bed and regular meals, and will know nothing but love in her foster home.

Kendra's perfect home would have a fenced-in yard, and perhaps a stay-at-home parent. She may like another doggie companion to follow around, but during her time outside the puppy mill, she has not played with toys or with another dog. However, she does like to follow another dog around.

Kendra needs to settle in for a few weeks at her foster home, and be seen by the vet for a well-dog check. Please stay tuned for updates on this sweet girlie.


To date we've spent $460.83 on Kendra's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $300.00 in donations.

Lil Bit

Lil Bit is an adorable senior Yorkie boy. He is 13 years old and weighs a little-too-much 7.3 pounds. Lil Bit came with his brother Romeo and they need to be adopted together. He is being fostered in Ocala, FL. Due to COVID-19, Florida dogs can only be adopted within the state of Florida. No exceptions can be made.

THANK YOU TO LIL BIT'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sharon Smith, Barbara Burgess

UPDATED BIO 06/04/2020: Lil Bit and his brother Romeo became United Yorkie Rescue pups when their owner was no longer able to provide the care they needed.

They have been in their foster home for a few days now. Lil Bit is an adorable senior boy. He loves to be held and sleep with his foster mommy. He has some problems walking because he is overweight and needs some exercise so he can be a healthier weight. He also has a urinary tract infection and is taking an antibiotic and has started a diet (eating less food) and exercising in the pool. There is already a significant improvement in his activity level.

Lil Bit likes to use a pee-pee pad to do his business, but foster mom is working with him to do his business outside. Lil Bit will be returning to the vet later this month to have his urine checked and if everything is okay, he will be ready for adoption. Lil Bit needs to be adopted with his brother, Romeo. If you are looking for two very sweet seniors, these are the boys for you.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to his size and age, Lil Bit and Romeo can only be adopted into an adult-only home. No children please.

Initial bio 5/30/20 Lil Bit and his brother Romeo became United Yorkie Rescue pups when their owner was no longer able to provide the care they needed. When it was discovered that Lil Bit has kidney values that were a little too high his vet said he needed his urine checked. Sure enough he has a urinary tract infection that is now being treated. After the UTI is cleared up his bloodwork, particular his kidney levels, will be rechecked. On June 8th Lil Bit will get a much needed dental and after he recovers from that he should be ready for his forever home.

Lil Bit is a little bit overweight. He should be closer to 6 pounds. His foster mom has put him on a diet. Don't let Lil Bit's age scare you, this sweet boy has a lot of life left to live. He is hoping to get adopted with his brother Romeo since they have always been together since Romeo was a puppy. If your heart would like to give one or even better two wonderful, deserving senior Yorkie boys their final and forever home please consider submitting an adoption application for Lil Bit and maybe for his brother Romeo too.

There will be more coming soon as Lil Bit settles into his foster home. His foster mom already knows this sweet boy loves everyone and would make a wonderful friend and companion for whoever would be lucky enough to adopt him. Lil Bit would do best in an all adult home. He is a bit too old to be a fun playmate for kids.

I am a handsome senior fella

After my dental - I still have toofers lol
Florida
Ringo Starr

MEET RINGO STARR. Ringo is a sweet senior male yorkie who is 12 years old. Ringo weighs a chubby 9 lbs. He is being fostered in Dunedin, FL. Due to COVID-19, all Florida foster dogs must be adopted by Florida residents at this time. No exceptions will be made.

UPDATED BIO 06/23/2020: Ringo Starr here. Guess what? I am feeling so, so much better since having my dental done! I didn't lose as many teeth as everyone thought I would, so I still have 19 good teeth left. The ones I lost were really bad and I know I will feel much better now that they are gone.

I am on some medications for a couple of weeks to help clear up my skin, eyes and ears but the vet said that having the dental work will probably help a lot with things that were bothering me. The vet told me that I am a very healthy little fella hooray!

Since I have had chronic ear infections my whole life, my ear canals are thickened, and I will need to have an ear wash 1-2 times per week for the rest of my life, but I don't mind that at all. It feels really good!

I am a super sweet and quiet little boy and I have learned very quickly to go outside and do my business. My Foster Mom praises me a lot when I do and I get a treat, so it is worth the effort! I like to sleep a little late in the morning, I gobble down my food, and am good on the leash when we go on walks. Oh one more thing . I am very handsome and so soft and silky that my Foster Mom can't stop petting me. I really like that!

I get along just fine with other dogs and I am really an easy-going kinda fella and dont get bothered by much. Due to my small size and age, I can only be adopted into a home with children 12 years old or older. I would prefer a quiet home where I can get lots of attention. At my age, I am not really interested in playing with other dogs. I just want to find my furever home and to be loved. That's not asking a lot, is it? If you think you are the perfect home for me fill out an adoption application and you will hear from my Foster Mom.

INITIAL BIO 06/17/2020: Ringo Starr was rescued today from a local shelter after having been picked up as a stray by animal control. He was covered in fleas and suffered from Flea Allergy Dermatitis, which caused a thinning of his hair where he was able to scratch.

Ringo has severe and chronic dental disease, which probably causes him a lot of pain since the roots are exposed on many of his remaining teeth poor fella. He will have a dental very soon and may lose what teeth he has left. Both of his ears were terribly infected and he was put on antibiotics and ear drops, and they are clearing up. He does have age-related cataracts, but he appears to see just fine. His heart and lungs are very good, as well as his labs.

Ringo appears to be an active senior boy and there is much more to know about him. He is getting along with the resident dogs in the home. Please stay tuned to learn more about this sweet boy.

UPDATED BIO 06/04/2020: Romeo and his brother Lil Bit became United Yorkie Rescue pups when their owner was no longer able to provide the care they needed.

They have been in their foster home for a few days now. Romeo is an adorable senior boy. He loves to explore and follow his foster mom throughout the house. He enjoys rides in the golf cart and trips to the small community dog park, being held and giving kisses. He also likes to sleep with his foster mommy.

At Romeos vet visit, it was discovered that he has lost some muscle mass; however, he is able to walk and run. He is currently getting pool therapy to strengthen his muscles. Romeo is now sporting a bellyband. His foster mom is working on his house-training manners. He has a urinary tract infection and is currently on antibiotics.

I love my foster home
Florida
Sweetie

MEET SWEETIE. She is a sweet little female Terrier Mix who is approximately 4 years old and weighs 10 lbs. Sadly, Sweetie is heartworm positive. Sweetie is being fostered in Tallahassee, FL. Due to Covid-19, all Florida foster dogs must be adopted by Florida residents at this time. No exceptions will be made.

THANK YOU TO SWEETIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Dianne Schultz, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Dianne Schultz, Lynn Broadway, Barbara Burgess

THANK YOU TO SWEETIE'S FACEBOOK DONORS!

Karry Rogers, Jill Landers, JT Tara King, Anne Hicks

UPDATED BIO 06/10/2020: Sweetie was surrendered by her owner who was unable to care for her due to health issues of her own. Sadly, Sweetie was also not given heartworm preventative in her previous home, and she is heartworm positive. This is unfortunate as now this precious little angel has to endure months of heartworm treatment and strict confinement and crate rest. She has already begun the treatment protocol established by the American Heartworm Society. Sweetie must remain in her foster home until her heartworm treatment is completed, which is expected to be the first two weeks of October.

Sweetie had a dental yesterday and her teeth are sparkly white. She is such a polite little girlie who only wants to be next to her person and give them tons of kisses. If Sweetie participated in a Doggie Kissing Booth Challenge, she would win hands-down! She is shy when first meeting someone, but warms up easily. She walks well on a leash and is improving with her house-training skills.

Sweetie is a delightful little doggie who is very obedient and has such a gentle little nature and personality. She isnt interested in toys at this time, and may have never been offered toys in her previous homes, but that could change as time goes on. She gets along fine with the resident dogs in the home. House-training is going good now that she understands where it is and is not an appropriate place to do her business. She is a smart little girl and wants to please her person, so she learns very quickly.

Although Sweetie will not be medically cleared for adoption until October, if you are interested in adopting her, please contact her foster mom for more details, or submit an adoption application which will be held until she has completed her heartworm treatment.

Sweeties heartworm treatment will be approximately $800, so we are reaching out to our angel donors and asking for donations to cover this large unexpected expense. UYR would never turn away a potential foster dog that has tested positive for heartworms, and your donation(s) will enable us to continue to rescue and treat other incoming foster dogs that may be heartworm positive. If you are unable to donate, please say some prayers that Sweetie will be able to endure the rigorous heartworm treatment.

UPDATED BIO 06/03/2020: Sweetie has only been in UYR for several days now she was surrendered by her owner who was unable to continue to care for her due to health issues of her own. Sweetie came with no history of vaccinations and no vetting in the past year in the previous owners home, so she had a big day at the vet yesterday getting a thorough exam and having all her vaccinations brought up-to-date.

Sadly, Sweetie was also not given heartworm preventative in her previous home, and she is heartworm positive. This is unfortunate as now this precious little angel has to endure months of heartworm treatment and strict confinement and crate rest. She has no outward signs of heartworms, so that is a good thing and she has already begun the protocol established by the American Heartworm Society. She must remain in her foster home until her heartworm treatment is completed, which is expected to be the first two weeks of October.

UYR would never turn away a potential foster dog that has tested positive for heartworms, and your donation(s) will enable us to continue to rescue and treat other incoming foster dogs that may be heartworm positive. If you are unable to donate, please say some prayers that Sweetie will be able to endure the rigorous heartworm treatment.

INITIAL BIO 05/30/2020: Sweetie just arrived into UYR today she was sadly surrendered by her owner who was unable to continue to care for her due to health issues of her own. Sweetie is just that - a real sweetie who is a bit timid, but is active and loves to give kisses. Theres so much more to know about her, and she will see the vet on Tuesday to have her vaccinations updated, and have a thorough exam. Stay tuned to learn more about this little girlie.


To date we've spent $699.27 on Sweetie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1209.27 in donations.
Please donate!

UPDATED BIO 5/29/20 Hi Everyone, it is me TobyKeith. I am called just Toby by all my friends, and I have a lot of friends. The truth is everyone I meet is my friend. I love every person and dog I meet. Now here is my best news ever today my nice vet told me my knee was healed. I could run and play and I dont have to be on the leash in the backyard anymore. I didnt waste a minute doing just that. I couldnt stop running around and playing with my good friend Scotty for a long time. My vet also told my foster mom that my other knee is better too. It was not popping out much at all and for most of the time it is staying right where it needs to be. What a great day with good news and lots of time to run and play with my friend.

My foster mommy said I am ready to go to my forever home. Here are some things that are important to know about me. I hate it when I am left alone and I make a lot of noise. I whine and I bark and it is loud. I know it is not a good thing to do and I am trying to do better, but so far I havent improved much. I cant go live in an apartment or condo because I know the people near us will get really mad at me and my new family. I need a stand-alone house so neighbors cant hear me if I get too loud. That means I especially need a forever family with someone who will be home with me a lot of the time. I will give you so much love and so many kisses, you wont even ever want to leave me.

Here is something else I really need too. I really want a young, small doggie friend to play with. I love to run and play and it is way more fun to have a friend who loves to run and play too. I would also love to have a fenced yard to do all that running around in with my friend. I am not so great on a leash. Thats because I like to get going to where we are going fast. I use the potty pad in the house and do my business outside. My foster mom and dad said for a puppy I am pretty good about all this, and pretty close to being house trained. I think that is a good thing. I am good in the car too. I dont bark or whine. I just stay safely attached and watch what is going on all around me.

I am hoping to find the prefect forever family for me. You might think my knee is not healed since I dont use my fixed leg all the time, but thats okay. My vet said that it usually takes 3 or 4 months to do that, but I always use it when I run, and you know I love to run. I am using it more and more when I walk.

You know I am only 8 months old so I really want and need a family for the whole rest of my life for 15 or even more years if you take good care of me. I dont ever want to have to be with a new family again. It has happened to me four times already. I need a forever home to really be my forever home for my whole life. I wouldnt mind having a home with well-behaved kids over the age of 11 if they would play with me and understand that I am still pretty little so they cant be too rough.

If you want a sweet puppy, who doesnt like to be left alone and you could maybe give me an energetic young friend and maybe even a fenced yard, please send my mommy an adoption application for me TobyKeith, the almost perfect puppy.

Sending puppy love and puppy kisses. TobyKeith.

This is from Toby's foster mom. Toby would love to be adopted with his foster brother Brodie. Please read about Brodie in his bio on our Looking for Love page. They love each other and play together all the time. They have become very close and having them adopted together forever would be so great for them. Toby wanted me to the everyone that.

UPDATED BIO 04/30/2020: Little TobyKeith had his patella (knee) surgery. It is so hard for this puppy to have to be quiet and restrained so his knee can heal properly. He is not happy having to be in the little puppy kennel or the puppy playpen. He only wants to able to run and play because he is, after all, a puppy and that is what puppies do. He only gets to go outside to do his business and he must be leashed.

We have to start Toby slowly putting weight on his right leg. This will take about 6-8 weeks to where he is using his leg and it is healed. It will take another month or two for his leg to be fully functioning and as good as new. Toby's stitches won't be removed until May 11th. Until then he is wearing the cone of unhappiness. The stitches are already bother him. The cone will keep him from licking and bothering them. After the stitches are removed, we are hoping to do some water therapy with him to build up his muscles again. Even though water therapy will be good for him, he wont enjoy it one bit. He is a Yorkie and most Yorkies do not like the water, Toby is one of those water hating Yorkie.

Toby has been spending a lot of time on our laps, in the puppy sling, and being pushed around in his stroller. We have found that at night he is now happier sleeping in his doggie bed between his foster mom and dads pillows. He is leashed to the bed's headboard. He can't go far because he is leashed up but he can sleep with his foster mom and dad and that makes him very happy. If there is one thing Toby Keith does not like it is being left alone. He wants, more than anything after playing with his doggie friends which he can't do for a few weeks now, is to be your Velcro puppy. He loves to play and he wants to run again, but he also loves to be with his people and to love them and give them his great big Toby kisses.

Toby would be okay with older kids 12 years and older. Toby would love a home with one other small playful dog. He gets frustrated if there is a dog around that is not as playful as he is. This is sad for Toby and for the older dogs who would rather not be bothered by such a young, playful dog. Many older dogs love to play, but few have the energy of a puppy. A fenced yard would be a real bonus, since he loves to run around in the yard. His foster parents know once he is healed, he will be out there running again.

Toby can be a barker and he can bark loud. He barks for attention and company to let you know he wants to be with his people or his dog friend. He seems to have separation anxiety and does not want to be left alone. Toby would not be the right dog for apartment or a condo living. His barking will most likely bother the neighbors. Toby would do best with someone who is home throughout much of the day to continue working on his separation anxiety. He will need continued training with his house training and with learning to use proper doggie manners. Toby is a great little guy. He is a lover and loves to cuddle. There is no doubt he will learn proper doggie manners, but his surgery has set back any training in his foster home.

You can see from Toby's pictures that he is not a happy boy. If you feel like you would like to make Toby happier, please consider making a donation to United Yorkie Rescue for Toby to help us pay for his surgery. Maybe if Toby knew people everywhere are loving him, we can get him to smile once again.

Please keep in mind that Toby is a very young boy at 7 months old, he needs a home and family that can be his forever home and family for at least 15-17 years.

UPDATED BIO 04/22/2020: TobyKeith is adjusting nicely to his foster home. It doesn't take a puppy long to feel at home anywhere he can have friends and fun. But for Toby the news is not all good. We found out that Toby will need surgery. He has a total luxating patella on his right hind leg. This is a condition in which the patella, or kneecap, dislocates or moves out of its normal location. Patella luxation is a common condition in dogs, particularly small and miniature breeds. The condition usually becomes evident between the ages of 4 and 6 months.

At 7 months old it is likely that his knees were bad before it became apparent to us. His former owner was an older person and Toby was kept crated for part of the day. When he was not in the crate he spent almost all his time indoors. When he came to his foster home, he was free to run around the fenced yard and play with the other dogs. He liked to jump like a jumping bean expressing how happy he was to see us and be with everyone. Toby did what all puppies do and that is to be an active, energetic, happy, little puppy. Unfortunately, all that puppy fun caused his right knee to luxate 100% and surgery is the only option.

Toby's left knee is also wobbly, but is not where it needs surgery and the hope is it never will. Dogs do fine with a luxating patella and usually the knee cap is able to go back into place if it does move. His left knee is able to do that, his right knee is not, and therefore surgery is the only option.

Toby's surgery will be April 27th. After that he will have a 6-8 week recovery in which he will have to be leashed to go out to do his business and confined for most of the day when he is inside. We plan to spend a lot of our day with Toby next to us or on our lap so he is not alone for long periods of time. We expect TobyKeith to make a full recovery. He will again be that energetic, lively, happy puppy. It would be to his benefit to be on a joint supplement to keep his knees healthy.

Toby will not be able to be adopted until he is healed and released by his vet. All applications for him will be held until we know the kind of forever home Toby needs. Please keep in mind that TobyKeith is a very young dog and he needs an active forever family that can give him at least a 15-17 year commitment of the same forever home. Toby would be fine with kids 12 years old or older. He would love a home with a fenced yard and only one other young active dog for a friend. More than one dog and he gets confused who to play with.

TobyKeith's surgery will be expensive. Please help us with that expense. Anything you can give will be greatly appreciated and will allow UYR to continue to rescue these little doggies that may need extensive surgeries like TobyKeith.

Initial bio 4-18-20 TobyKeith just came to his foster home. His owner realized that a puppy needed a home that could meet his puppy needs. He needed more activity and time and attention then she could give him. His foster parents have found that TobyKeith is one active, energetic, happy puppy. He has been so busy exploring and running around in his foster home. He will take a little rest and then he is up and going again.

Toby was neutered recently so he will need to stay in his foster home for at least two weeks while the neuter heals. We know he likes other active small dogs and he seems to love people. There will be a lot to learn and fun to have with TobyKeith the puppy. Come back soon to find about it all out. TobyKeith may be okay with older children 12 years old and older. He needs a forever family that will give this puppy at least 15 to 17 years of a forever home.

Francie

Meet Francie a 8 year old, 8 pound Yorkie. She is being fostered in Suwanee,GA

Due to COVID-19 at this time ALL ADOPTIONS must be in the state the dog is being fostered

THANK YOU TO FRANCIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta

Updated Bio 3/2/20

Francie came into rescue a couple of months ago with her sister Rhue. Their previous owner passed away and it was thought to all that the pair of doggies were bonded but it turns out they are not and both dogs have very different personalities and likes. So now United Yorkie Rescue is searching for each dog a new home of their very own to fit their needs.

Francie is not much of a Cuddle Bug , She wants attention but not so sure she wants to be in a lap. She does like to get under your feet while you are sitting and use them to scratch her back. Francie enjoys exploring the backyard and will come when called. She is a good car rider, is indifferent to kids and cats and appears to be almost completely house trained. Francie prefers to sleep in a corner of your bed but she is also crate trained. She's going to need a good patient home where they are willing to give her the time to feel safe and settle in.

Updated Bio 11/16/19

Francie and Rhue are looking for a new home. Their mom passed away and there was no one available to keep them together so they came into United Yorkie Rescue in hopes someone will fall in love with this pair and give them a new home. Francie just had her first dental ever in all of her 8 years and she lost 11 teeth. You'd think this might slow her down but she's still hungry and really enjoying her soft food for the next few days while she heals. She wants attention but not so sure she wants to be in a lap yet. She does like to get under your feet while you are sitting and use them to scratch her back. Francie enjoys exploring the backyard with her sister Rheu and will come when called. She must be walked with a harness and not with a lead attached to her collar because it makes her choke. She is a good car rider, is indifferent to kids and cats and appears to be almost completely house trained. Francie prefers to sleep in a corner of your bed but she is also crate trained. She's going to need a good patient home where they are willing to give her the time to feel safe and settle in. Any questions please email foster mom at jennifer@unitedyorkierescue.org

Updated Bio 6/3/20: CHLOE ( TENNESSEE)

Chloe is a just-turned-4 year old, 14-pound miniature schnauzer being fostered in Ashland City, TN.

Sadly, this young girl is almost completely blind through no fault of her own. Chloe came to us with multiple challenges including a leg that was broken when she was hit by a car but she never received care for this so her leg turns slightly inward. The break has long since healed and does not seem to limit her but her rapidly deteriorating vision is a different matter. Sadly, Chloe has bilateral congenital cataracts. Dogs like Chloe are born fully sighted but soon experience rapidly deteriorating vision. Chloes Mom knew something was wrong when she observed Chloe stumbling into furniture, objects and walls so UYR had Chloe evaluated by a Veterinary Ophthalmologist. A thorough work up and retinal exam was performed to see if an underlying condition might be present. The good news is that Chloe passed her retinal exam with flying colors meaning that other than cataracts, both eyes are otherwise healthy and her vision can be fully restored with surgery. However, her cataracts are rapidly progressing and we were advised that without surgical intervention Chloe is likely to develop glaucoma and could risk losing not only her vision but her eyes as well. Chloes rapidly deteriorating vision causes her lots of anxiety because she does not understand what is happening to her. She is super loving and wants to play with her foster family and fur-siblings so bad but it scares and frustrates her to bump into walls and furniture and not be able to see where she is going. We do not normally perform cataract surgery on our vision-challenged dogs due to the high cost and the fact that most dogs who have cataracts experience very gradual vision loss over a period of years and adapt quite well. However, we feel that given Chloes young age and emotional distress we should give this angel a chance to live her life as a sighted dog. The cost is estimated to be between $3500 and $4500 and we realize that is a very big number. Still, we feel that Chloe needs and deserves this opportunity and we hope you do too and will help by sending some love in the form of donations her way! If you would like to donate to her care please click on her PayPal button underneath.

Updated Bio 5-1-20: Chloe is a very smart, sweet girl. Although she has advanced cataracts ( due to genetics) she doesnt let that hinder her in any way. She gets around great, plays gives lots of loving, and enjoys being with her person. Chloe gets excited about going on walks. She is completely house trained. She loves to sleep with foster mom and she often steals her pillow! Before coming into rescue she was hit by a car and her back leg healed a little bit inward. The vet said this cant be fixed. She probably wasnt taken to the vet and it healed up on its own. This may cause her to have arthritis. She likes to go for car rides but needs to be in a car seat or she roams all over due to excitement and her not being able to see. She does settle down pretty quick . We do believe in the right lighting she can see maybe shadows. We are not sure if she would be a candidate for cataract surgery since her cataracts are so advanced. The rescue no longer does cataract surgery due to the high expense. Chloe loves food and treats. She has her favorite spot up on the couch she lays on. Chloe does get along well with other dogs, however she doesnt want them to come up and jump on her to play. She would do great as an only dog or with an older calm dog. Due to her cataracts it is good to warn her if she doesnt hear you coming or it scares her if you reach to pet if she is sleeping. She is only 4 years old and Chloe deserves a family who will love and cherish her for life. She is up to date on shots, spayed and has had a dental. Any questions please email Foster mom at mandy@unitedyorkierescue.org

She loves to lay up in a chair or couch and be with her person. She does have early cataracts that is probably due to genetics. Chloe is up to date on all shots but will be checked up by the Dogtor soon to make sure all else is good. Stay tuned for updates as Foster mom learns more about miss Chloe.

Tinkerbelle

Tinkerbelle is a estimated 10 year old Yorkie girl who weighs 6 pounds and is being fostered near Nashville ,TN.

NO ADOPTIONS OUT-OF-STATE DUE TO COVID-19 center>

Initial Bio 06/22/2020

Meet Tinkerbelle she is an estimated 10 year old Yorkie being fostered in Nashville, TN. Tinkerbelle has hearing problems due to recurrent chronic ear infections that have left her with cauliflower ear. She is being treated for this condition and it seems to thankfully be improving. this is an issue that will need to be monitored closely. We believe that she can hear better now that the condition is improving. She is house trained and will let you know when she wants something by barking at you. She is very good at getting her point across. She follows her foster mom everywhere she goes and is definitely a Velcro baby! She is sooo sweet and loves to go on walks and lay on the couch next to her foster mom and dad. She gets along pretty well with her foster brother and sisters but will let them know if she is not in the mood to mess with them. Tinkerbelle would be fine in a home with or without another dog however children would not be a good fit for her. She was just spayed last week and brought current on shots. She will go back to the dogtor this week for a check-up on for her ear condition. Please stay tuned for updates on this precious girl!


To date we've spent $64.41 on Tinkerbelle's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Allie
Texas
Allie

Sweet Allie is a little 6 pound, 2 year old princess who is being fostered in Fort Worth, TX. Only Texas applications will be considered.

INITIAL BIO 6-14-20: Meet Allie, our little 6 pound princess who loves sitting in your lap!! She was turned in at shelter with the finder saying they found her on the street. Well, she was not there long and she was very loved by someone. A search for the owner was made and she was not chipped so she ended up with UYR. This little girl is Heartworm negative and potty trained. This little love follows foster mom everywhere, has a low little growl to let foster mom know she needs to be picked up! One day, foster mom was sitting at a computer and the next thing she knew, Allie was in her lap, where she stayed. This little girl probably ate human food because it took a couple of days to get her eating and now she has no problems finishing her food. This little girl needs a furever home that will give her a LOT of love and attention and wants a cuddle buddy at bedtime. She does not like sleeping in her crate, she prefers the bed. If you think you have what it takes to make this little princess the center of your world, please fill out an application at www.unitledyorkierescue.org.

Adoption Pending

Bexley
Texas
Bexley (aka Tanner)

Meet adorable Bexley (aka Tanner), a one ear old 9 pound cutie being fostered in Texas. Only Texas adopters will be considered.

Initial Bio 6-26-29: Look at this gorgeous boy! Our new foster

Bexley is a 22 month old 12lb (very adorable) boy who in his short life found himself in the the shelter not once, but twice!!

His family was moving and chose to leave Bexley behind. They sent him packing to the shelter where he was adopted quickly, but again failed by his family and returned to the shelter. He is a very playful boy who loves toys, fingers and toes!! He was unfortunately adopted to a family with small children and his playful nature proved a bit much for the little ones.

Bexley is a puppy, he has puppy energy and plays like you would expect a puppy to play. He barks when he hears a new noise, all puppies do. Once he realizes all is fine, hes fine. After only a few days most household noises were no longer acknowledged.

Bexley is great with other dogs and every person he has met, including kids. We would recommend a home without small children, however there is no problem if you have visiting children (grands etc.) Bexley is trainable and could also learn to be playful with children if you have the patience to teach him. Bexley likes to be with his people. He would be a perfect companion pup! He loves to be outside too!

Now, the always important bathroom habits. Bexley is a squatter and shows no tendency to mark. He wears his little belly band without a problem while hes learning outside only. Bexley has a sweet nature and is a very good boy. He has learned both sit and stay very quickly. He is looking for the perfect forever family that will never give him up again.

If you are interested in learning more about Bexley you can email his foster mom at Olgauyrtx@gmail.com

Meet Bosco. Bosco is 10-years-old and weighs 13 lbs. He is being fostered in Austin, TX.

THANK YOU TO BOSCO'S RESCUE ANGELS

THANK YOU TO BOSCO'S FACEBOOK DONORS

Karry Rogers, Yoly Velez-Tarr, Leslie Corbell, Alexa Socha Rowan, Samantha Oates

INITIAL BIO: 06/25/20. Meet Bosco! Hes a 10 year old 13-lb boy being fostered in Austin. Hes been through a lot but hes super sweet and super friendly. Boscoe was left alone for days at a time after his owner passed away. He was left with a big bowl of food each time, so when he was first rescued he was so overweight he could barely move. He was rescued 2 months ago, and hes doing much better! You can see from his photos hes much slimmer and he gets around great.

Bosco has cataracts, but the vet says hes a good candidate for surgery. He cant see much but that doesnt slow him down! He enjoys going for walks and just needs a little bit of help to avoid curbs. Hes happy to snuggle up next to you, especially if you give him some skritches. He also loves to make a blanket nest and curl up there. Hes going to the vet this week to get some help with his allergies, so check back soon for an update.


To date we've spent $144.75 on Bosco's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $170.00 in donations.

UPDATE BIO. 05/19/20. Once again, meet United Yorkie Rescue Crystal. Crystal is a 9 to 10 yr old, 16lb owner surrender. Her prior adoptive family loved this baby so much. Sadly, the family, both daddy and momma, are dealing with major critical health issues and Covid's shutdown of resources. Sadly, affording new tests for this little girl with ongoing skin and eye issues have left this little girl is dire need of medical assistance due to her own ongoing issues. The decision was made to surrender this baby so that care could continue. A year and 3 months ago Crystal was rescued from a horrible puppy mill with the Fortunate Four as we lovingly called them. She came into rescue then with life threatening pyometra requiring immediate emergency surgery, a horrible skin infection referred to as a MRSP (a bacterial resistant skin infection) and with mammary cancer in which we removed her entire chains. Bunny, who is in my care as a Forever Ours with metastatic cancer, was also from that same hell mill that we successfully had shut down a few months later. These girls not only still suffer with ongoing medical issues, but also share a lot of emotional scars that come from living their life in the mill.

Crystal was immediately seen by my awesome vet at Refinery Road and a medical plan was put into place to once again to address her ongoing skin issues. Tests have been sent to A&M for answers. Skin scraping biopsy, cytocentesis to look for possible cortisol in the urine, a first look for possible Cushing's and a complete blood panel to look for diabetes and or possible thyroid issues with a TSH test. Crystal had previously had great medical attention with visits to oncology and internal medicine prior to her adoption. Hopefully we will get answers since her life was in a healthier environment outside of a crate life and filled with love. Breeding definitely takes it toll on these precious babies!

Please continue to support our babies at UYR. I know times are truly hard for us all with this horrible pandemic, but we cannot stop doing what these babies need...rescue needs to go on. Donations can be made at www.uyr.us. We thank you and bless you all

4/5/19: Crystal broke out in horrific hives and is being treated with another medication and a microbial mousse for her skin since her MRSP infection medication just ended. The oncologist who did her emergency surgery with her MRSP infection thinks she's doing great as does her regular vet. After a week of antibiotic to clear up her hives, she can have her dental and be finally be ready for adoption. Crystal is still very shy with humans until you get her next to you. Then she's just so loving and loves the belly rubs. She absolutely ADORES any and all of the dogs... she was sadly, most definitely an amazing mommy for the mill. She will be a wonderful addition to the right family.

3/27/19 Update: We have reached an amazing milestone...sweet puppy mill Crystal is finally healed and looking for her furever home. Crystal is an estimated 9yr old, 14lb sweet girl. We go for our final vet appointment this week. This angel has had quite a journey after her rescue. She survived life threatening pyometra, mammary cancer and a MRSP infection. These were all on top of her eye infections, skin, ears, and broken teeth. This baby girl, I also feel, has been physically abused. There are times I will reach to pet her or call her and she will cower which just breaks my heart. This is very typical of a mill baby without human interaction, but they learn that love is just amazing. Crystal is starting to crave love and absolutely loves to snuggle in the bed and get her belly rubs. She loves all the fosters and she gets sooo excited when a new one comes in. She immediately wants to go be mommy to them and play. She is such a funny girl too as when she goes to play with the others, she gets tickled on her own and jumps all around which is the cutest thing to see. Crystal deserves a home that will be patient and loving with her. Being a mill baby, she may need to re-settle into your home, but once settled she's such a blessing to have. The perfect home for Crystal would be one that is patient and allows her just to blossom. She loves walks, being outside, riding in the car and just being with her human and buddies. Crystal would love to have another pup to be her friend. She gets along fine with cats in the home as well. If you feel you can give this baby her Cinderella happy-ever-after, please fill out an application or contact foster mom at yorkieforstertx@gmail.com.

2/28/19 Update: Wanted to give everyone an update on sweet Crystal of the Fortunate Four Mill rescue. Crystal went in to have both mammary chains removed on the 15th. Carcinoma was discovered in 2 of her previously excised mammary tumors from prior emergency surgery for her pyometra, so the best cure was this type of removal, as there were many more tumors in both chains. Crystal is home now as of the 20th and doing well. Slowly this angel is coming into herself. The happy moments are just incredible to see as I have watched her attempt to play with one of her fur siblings, try Every bed in the house and rolling on her back and talk as if to say, "this feels soooo good"!! Once again we need your help! This was a costly medical expense, but rescue comes with a price and not with cute bows. Crystal is just an adorable love bug as are her other fur siblings, please help us so we can continue our processes by using the donate button below.

2/9/19 Update: The horror unfolds! Here we have a current picture of Crystal who is one of the Fortunate Four that was recently rescued from the puppy mill last week. Crystal had emergency spay surgery immediately upon rescue due to her pus-filled uterus. The vet also took only 2 0f many concerning mammary tumors off one of her tits to be biopsied while she was under anesthesia. She has multiple tumors in both chains. This new picture shows a sweet angel baby after her first medicated bath on Friday. Sadly, what lies inside sweet Crystal is heartbreaking news that we are working with at the present. These results came back in as tumor #1 being carcinoma and tumor #2 as a complex carcinoma. She was immediately called in for a chest x-ray to see if we have metastasized within the chest cavity and lungs...thankfully, those came back clear. Crystal has bacterial skin infection, bilateral ear infections, loss of tear production in her eyes due to untreated eye infections, a mouth full of horrible decay and now mammary cancer. We have saved her life by performing her pyometra surgery, so now it's time to continue our fight to save her. Crystal will undergo surgery this upcoming week. This will be major invasive surgery to remove both mammary chains to make certain we don't miss margins with this cancer. Possibly her dental can be done at that time as well, we will see. Please continue to support us with these horrifically abused angels.

2/5/19: Meet Crystal, one of 3 breeding females recently rescued from puppy mill. She was in distress and taken immediately for care. She was diagnosed with pyometria, a life-threatening condition which is basically an abscessed uterus. This is caused by over-breeding and lack of medical care. She literally had pus draining from her vagina. Crystal has flea and tick infestation, extremely long nails, hair loss, bacterial skin infection, mammary tumors on both sides, engorged teats indicative of recent nursing. Her teeth are literally falling out.

Crystal was taken to surgery for immediate hysterectomy for pyometria. Two mammary tumors looked suspicious and were sent for pathology before proceeding with the remaining tumors. She is recovering well.

Crystal is only one of the Fortunate Four. Please consider helping with her care by using the donate button below and sharing her story.

Kappie
Texas
Kappie (Cappy)

Kappie is a 6-year-old who weighs only 3 lbs. She is being fostered in Azle, TX.

Due to COVID-19 at this time ALL ADOPTIONS must be in the state the dog is being fostered

INTIAL BIO: 06/29/20. Kappie is a precious little three pound, 6 year old girl who came into rescue facing a very costly surgery for a liver shunt. Kappie was found on the streets by a good Samaritan who took her to a vet to check for a chip. None was found. The vet tech reached out to her family for help with this little girl and they graciously took her temporarily in an effort to help her. Kappie had no hair and was flea infested, and emaciated. In the short two months she was in a loving temporary home, she was treated for two urinary tract infections, she was spayed and during the spay the vet discovered she had multiple bladder stones.

The vet also believes she has a liver shunt and we are waiting for blood work results to come back to confirm this finding. Kappie is very loving and she loves to play and has a lot of life left to live! Liver shunt surgery and the hospital after care costs in the thousands of dollars. We need your support and donations to help UYR extend the life of Kappie.

Once she is healthy, she will be available for adoption but will need a family that can be diligent in having blood work to monitor her liver function. Since Kappie is a little three pound girl, she needs a home without children. She loves people and needs a home with a family that will take her with them or be home with her so she is not alone all day.

If you think your family is perfect or if you would like to contribute to the care of this precious girl, please go to our website at www.unitedyorkierescue.org and you can donate there and/or fill out an application. Thank you for your support!!!

Mia

Mia

Meet Mia, a 10 year old, 3 pound little princess being fostered in Leander, TX. DUE TO COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS, ONLY TEXAS APPLICANTS WILL BE CONSIDERED.

THANK YOU TO MIA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Lauren Satterfield, Wendy Henry, Sherrie Scrupski, Kathleen Conley, Irene and Peter Havas in memory of darling Happy

Bio Update 6/28/20 - Hello future furever home! Mia here to tell you about everything that has been going on since my move into foster life. Living with foster mom and dad has been an adventure for me. They never lock me up and I get to roam the whole house, but I prefer to be right by their side. Foster mom and dad have been feeding me some awesome home cooked chicken, rice, and green beans. I love it and have put on a much needed half of a pound. Now my ribs aren't so visible and all my hair is growing back in. I have been to see the dogtor way too many times. I don't really like it there because they make me do things I don't feel like doing, but I guess it's for the best. See, I have been on medication to control fluid build up in my lungs due to congestive heart failure and the dogtor likes to check my progress once a week. The news is great, though. I am responding well to the diuretic and the heart medication and everyone believes I will be ready for a much needed surgery in the next week or so. I have never been spayed, which causes some bladder issues and having to go through a pesky heat every now and then. I also have two mammary tumors that need to come out and my teeth are painful and decayed. The dogtor says this will be a long surgery, so she wants me to be in my best health possible before going under. I am hopeful that I can get this behind me soon and on to my furver home. I have a lot of personality to share with that "special someone" and want to give all my love and attention unconditionally. I am even playing with stuffed toys now. I may be a little older, but I am as spunky as they come.

Please contact my foster mom and dad for more information.

uyryorkielovetx@yahoo.com

5/21/20 Howdy cool dogs and puppies! Mia here to tell you a little about myself. I was recently released (rescued) from a life behind bars. Well truthfully, it was a baby crib, where I have been confined for a long time. I am 10 years old and a commanding 3.3 pounds. I wish I could tell you that I come into rescue in perfect shape and ready to find my forever home, but that would be a fib. When I was surrendered I was severely flea infested and suffered some hair loss because of it. I have never been spayed and am currently in heat. I developed several mammary tumors due to not being spayed and will likely have at least one entire mammary chain removed in the coming weeks. I am currently on antibiotics for a severe UTI, need a dental, and suffer from a 4 out of 6 heart murmur. Despite all these ailments, I am very sweet and love attention. Foster mom and dad have scheduled me to get spayed on 6/4 and have asked the dogtor to take a sample of my urine to send out for a culture. See, I also am having an issue with going to the bathroom. It just feels like I have to go all the time and I am able to get a little out about every 30 seconds while I am awake. This could be a combination of being in heat and the UTI, but the dogtor needs to take a close look at me to determine why this is happening. I have a good appetite and need to put on about a pound to be healthy. My poor ribs and spine are very visible, but the good diet foster mom and dad have me on will surely get me back to my optimal weight in no time. Please stay tuned for more updates on my progress as I go through some inevitable surgeries in the coming weeks.

From Foster Parents: Due to Mia's size, she will only be available to homes without small children. She will need a very patient family to deal with her bladder issues and sometimes not so nice temperament (due to fear). She does enjoy cuddling on the couch and really loves being outside, supervised at all time of course. Mia cannot be crated, as she has already suffered a long life of being confined. If you have space in your heart and home for Mia, please fill out an application using the link below. You can also contact the foster directly with any questions using the email below.


To date we've spent $1184.37 on Mia's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $160.00 in donations.

THANK YOU TO RILEY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta

INITIAL BIO 6-9-20: Meet our precious Riley! He is whopping 7 pound, estimated 4 year baby boy found on the streets of Houston, Texas!! A Good Samaritan picked him up covered in fleas, very little hair on his body, and swollen foot pads. He was not chipped and even though a search was made for an owner, no one was found. The Good Samaritan took him to vet for limited care, and reached out to UYR and we took it from there. He has a skin infection but all of his hair should come back in fine! He is HW negative, thank goodness! Foster mom gives him medicated baths and makes sure he takes his medicine! For all this baby has been through, he is happy and loving! He loves foster moms other dogs and will sit in your lap and snuggle with you for as long as you will let him. His little tail just wags all the time! He is a happy boy! It will be a couple of weeks before he is immunized because of his skin infection but he is in great shape! He is just full of personality! Foster mom is working with Riley on his manners and potty training. He still needs some work because living on the streets did not teach him these things! If you think you can give this little guy a great forever home, please fill out an application and submit to United Yorkie Rescue. His vet bills are coming in and since this little guy has lived on the streets, any monetary donation for his care and vetting would be very appreciated! Please email foster mom with any questions!

Roxy
Texas
Roxy TX

Meet sweet Roxy, a tiny 6 pound, 9 year old little girl who came to her Texas foster mom from California. She is being fostered in Georgetown, TX and must be adopted within the state of Texas. Her adoption fee is $500. ROXY HAS AN ADOPTION PENDING.

THANK YOU TO ROXY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Jillian Galindo, Susan Rigby, Lauren Radencic

INITIAL BIO: 05/31/20. Meet Ms Roxy who is a 7lb lovable 9 year old bundle of love. This sweet girl came to UYR 3 weeks ago from her home of 9 years. Her previous owner was moving and wasnt able to take her to her new home. She only had a few health issues but nothing that will keep her from loving all the human attention she can get. Roxy had some dental surgery and now she has beautiful pearly whites. A nutritious diet and some skin care are letting her coat come in so beautiful. She had some skin issues on her ears, which caused hair loss, but with treatment her hair is growing slowly back in. Her hair looks to be a coco brown, which could give her a tri color coat.

If you are good with an adorable little Yorkie following you around and driving you crazy to go for walks and car rides then she will be perfect for her new family. Her potty training is 50/50. She is starting to see that staying outside in her yard and sniffing and enjoying outside is ok. She was scolded for going potty inside and then left outside so associated outside as maybe punishment. She does go and gets lots of praise when she does. She is very smart and With some consistent training she will be great. Roxy loves being with other dogs, big or small. Her preference is to sleep and curl up to a big dog friend. She loves to play with her humans but doesnt know how to play with other roommates. She does love being part of a pack of other babies. There is no aggression with this girl.

Since she didn't have a lot of attention, her best forever home would be with a family that is home all the time and can love on her and where she can be their best friend. She loves both men and ladies.

A retired couple or a single lady or man would be perfect. Children 12 or older would be a good choice if they are used to a small dog. She used to sleep in a cage but sleeps in a people bed and snuggles all night. You can go to UYR.org to complete an application.

UPDATE 3/7/20: Calling all caring and compassionate souls that are eager to make a difference in a very special and needy puppy's life. I have been neglected far too long due to my prior owners ongoing health problems and am in need of a special someone that has a huge heart and wants to be a savior to a very special little boy. Sorry for the wait on my update, but I have been one busy little puppy. So my first vet visit was a doozie! Remember how foster mom and dad said I had some tooth decay; well they weren't wrong. I lost every single tooth when I had my first dental since maybe forever. But I am surprisingly not fazed. I can even keep my tongue in my mouth...well most of the time! I still really love the soft food I am getting, but I occasionally raid the kibble bowl when it's available. It's great that my appetite is good, as I still need to put on some weight to be my best healthy self. I also had to go under the knife twice, once to remove a large growth that thankfully was not cancer, and again for exploratory surgery to find my remaining testicle so I could be neutered. But success, the dogtor found and removed it. I have now healed and settled down and am beginning to behave like a perfect gentleman. I absolutely love to be next to my human. Whether it is on foster moms' lap while she does her hair and makeup, or snuggled up next to mom or pop on the couch during resting time. And I love to sleep under the covers in bed with my people. I sleep through the night without making a peep or bothering the other two pups in bed. I get along with my foster siblings and love on any visitors that stop by. I will go outside to do my business, but still need a little help on my inside manners when no one is home. My ideal home would be with adults that possibly work from home or are retired. I am special and need someone equally as special that want to make all the difference in the world to me. So like Foreigner said "I want to know what love is.....and I want you to show me".

Initial Bio 2/2/20: Hi everyone, I would like to take a moment to introduce myself, my name is Teddy and Im about ten years old. Unfortunately, my loving owner was no longer able to take care of me due to serious ongoing health problems over the past four years. So they surrendered me to the United Yorkie Rescue in hopes of me finding a great new forever home. Foster Mom & Dad picked me up yesterday so we are still getting to know each other. All of this change is a little scary for me and I know it will take time for me to adjust, but as long as I have a soft place to snuggle and relax and lots of soft food Im a pretty happy guy. I had a trip to the emergency vet last night due to some pain caused by my terribly decaying teeth. The vet gave us some medication that is helping me feel better until I can get into see the regular vet first thing on Monday morning. My foster Mom and Dad are worried about me because Im a little underweight, but I love the soft food they are feeding me here as I did not do very well with hard food because of my teeth, but hopefully we will get those fixed soon. I will also need to be neutered once the vet says Im healthy enough. The future is looking bright for me. We will update everyone after my Monday appointment. If you would like more info or would like to meet , contact my foster parents at uyryorkielovetx@yahoo..com.

6/9/20 UPDATE: Sweet little Toby was seen with Internal Med today to discuss his nuclear testing that was recently performed. It appears that Toby has a very rare condition. Dr. Miller can only find two other patients with the same condition. Basically he feels Toby was probably born with a congenital shunt. Over the course of his short life, his body has produced multiple micro shunts which resemble looking at worm-like fibers. Sadly, he is not a candidate for surgery and will need lifetime monitoring. As of today, we will need to recheck his liver values closely as the toxins will destroy the liver over time. We will also need to watch for crystalized stones to form as we must move his diet to a low protein diet to protect the liver. We are on medications to aid in binding the toxins and keeping this precious baby protected. We will do this while adding what is necessary, for as long as we can, keeping him healthy as we go forward. As of now, Toby is just a happy little boy and toxins seem to be in check. Please know this testing is quite expensive at this moment, so your love and donations have been and will be so appreciated! Please share. Please keep Toby in your prayers as we go through this process in his precious life. God bless you!

6/2/20 UPDATE: Sadly the excitement of finding an operable shunt has been squashed as this little boy with UNITED YORKIE RESCUE has acquired many shunts. It is possible this started as a birth defect but over time he has acquired an intricate tortuous amount of shunts that are not operable and are critical now to keeping his liver alive. In Toby's case, it has been recommended that he receive a biopsy of his liver. He will meet with Dr. Miller, with Internal Med on Monday, and we will proceed with further testing to make sure he gets full diagnosis. He is currently receiving the proper medications to protect his liver. Please keep prayers coming for this adorable baby and as always, donations can be made using the link below. Donations are so needed for these sick babies. I will update everyone on Monday as to our next step with this precious baby! Meanwhile, he loves to go with foster momma and snuggles are a must!

5/21/20. BIO UPDATE: Precious UNITED YORKIE RESCUE Toby just wanted to snuggle after his long day of nuclear sedated testing. Sweet baby is dripping urine too. We are monitoring that. This maybe due to the surgical removal of a large stone prior and a combo of todays anesthesia.

We know we do have a liver shunt so prayers needed that we are operable!! He will meet with the surgeon Tuesday early am. This process is extremely expensive for our rescue so of course we ask for your help. Please donate at www.uyr.us, share and send prayers for this angel!! Bless you all!

5/22/20 UPDATE: This precious little UNITED YORKIE RESCUE Toby, is back in rescue. Sadly, our little 5lb, 3yr old is ill with a dire medical condition. Toby originally came into rescue as an owner surrender. Upon his arrival it became evident he was having issues urinating. He was immediately taken to the vet and the next day underwent emergency surgery for removal of a huge bladder stone. Toby healed nicely, he was put on a special diet an adopted to a very loving owner. Sadly, upon a recheck for Toby she was given the horrible news that his liver values were off and upon further testing, bile acids were high. We now know this baby most likely has a portal liver shunt. We have taken Toby to the vet to start proper medication which binds the toxins that are not being filtered through his malfunctioning liver, and we will now proceed with confirming this shunt through a nuclear scintigraphy with immediate surgery to follow. This testing and surgery is extremely expensive and can run upwards of $6k to $8k. We need your help please! We have recently rescued quite a few with unique medical needs, but even with the state the world is in, rescue needs to continue. Donations can be made using the link below.

BIO UPDATE! 04/22/20. Precious little Toby did well with his surgery! He stayed overnight and most of this day for pain managment, and now is finally on his way home with foster momma.

We are so blessed with an amazing vet in the Austin area at Blockhouse Creek Vet Clinic for the great care they gave to this little nugget. Now, we wait for results of the composition of this huge stone so Toby can start a diet to protect him from developing any more in the future.

Again, your donations are so very much appreciated at this terrible time in all of our lives. Bless you all. Please take a moment to donate or share and please enjoy a new attached picture!

UPDATE 4-/21/20: Precious 3yr, 5 lb Toby began displaying distress and pain today and is now at the vet's getting prepped for surgery. His little bladder has been blocked by a large stone and he was in immense pain by the time his foster momma arrived at the vet. We know this procedure will be costly (approx $2000) so please donate what you can and share for this angel using the Donate Button below. Bless you all and thank you for loving sweet Toby!!

INITIAL BIO. 04/21/20. Toby is a very sweet and tiny boy, weighing in at 5 pounds. He is absolutely beautiful with gorgeous silver fur, chocolate socks and dark ear tips. He has the face of an angel, and he looks like he is smiling. He loves to cuddle, is good in the car, prefers to always be in a lap no matter where he is, and sleeps through the night.

Toby is currently awaiting bladder surgery and will need time to heal before he is ready for his new home. Stay tuned for more information on Toby's progress!

Tucker is a sweet 9 month old, 10 pound Yorkie boy being fostered in Gainesville, TX.

THANK YOU TO TUCKER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

THANK YOU TO TUCKER'S FACEBOOK DONORS!

UPDATE BIO: 06/14/20. Tucker was adopted in October to a family who was just not able to meet his needs. Therefore, Tucker has recently returned to our care.

He is a special needs dog and will require a specific type of home. Despite a rough start in life, he has a great attitude. He has 3 legs and gets around very well, however he is not able to walk long distances and needs to be carried when he gets tired. He would do best in a home with someone who is home all day and does not have children..

He is housetrained and very intelligent. He is a snuggler and prefers to be near his human, crating would not be a good option for him. He loves to sleep in bed with his human. He previously lived with another dog, however I have noticed that he does not get along with every dog he meets. He is very social and has the sweetest little teddy bear face. He just had a spa day and did great. Because he is a younger dog, the ideal home would be someone who is in good health and can provide him with love and care for the next 12-15 years or more.

If you are that special someone that can meet Tucker's needs and would like to consider adopting him, follow the link below to complete an application.

Initial Bio 9/14/19

Today sweet Tucker will come into our loving rescue. An amazing mom of this 9 month old baby, who could not hold back tears, sobbed as she relived and told the story of her ex boyfriend kicking her sweet angel sending him flying and breaking his leg. Yes, the police are looking for him now and will be charging him with felony abuse!! Tucker spent the night at the ER. When she arrived to move him to her vet and thinking her vet might be able to help her with a lower price for repair, she realized she cannot afford the care. This is my second time seeing what evil can do ��. This is the absolute WORSE abuse any baby can endure!! Please pray for sweet Tucker and share, as we will need funds to repair what damage has occurred both physically and emotionally.


To date we've spent $1073.10 on Tucker's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1145.00 in donations.
