Romeo is so loved by his new mom and dad.
Romeo

3/14/19 After almost 7 months as a United Yorkie Rescue dog Romeo was adopted today. It finally happened. Romeo found his wonderful new mom and dad. Romeo is not able to hold his head up due to a neck and upper spine deformity from birth. After many vet visits, lots of medications tried, and an expensive MRI it was decided that Romeo does not have a life threatening disease nor will his life be shortened because of the deformity. He is such a sweet, loving little dog of only just 5 pounds. Romeo loved his foster home but he preferred getting the love and attention himself. He loves to play with toys, but he mostly loved being held and cuddled by his foster mom. His foster mom knew he needed to be an only dog and today he was adopted by his new mom and dad. He loved them and they loved him from the first. They didn't care that he couldn't always hold his head up and that sometimes he was a little shaky on his feet because of it. They promised him a lifetime of love and happiness. It was a long time coming, but today Romeo found his happily ever after forever.

I love my new mommy and she loves me
Bella

3/14/19 Beautiful Bella was adopted today. Bella spent the first 8 years of her life with her one mommy. Then sadly one day her mommy died and Bella went to live with a family that were relatives of her mommy. As much as Bella wanted a new family, this was not the right one for her. There were little kids who thought she was a toy and tried to carry her all over the place. It was not safe for them to do that and Bella was scared. Not only were there little kids, but there were two young, big dogs who seemed like giants to a dog as small as Bella. They didn't hurt her, they just wanted to play with her. Bella was afraid they would hurt her. Bella was spending most of her time hiding from the kids and the big dogs. Her new family really did love her and they wanted her, but they knew they were not the right family for her, and with much sadness they knew Bella had to become a United Yorkie rescue pup.

Bella did great in her foster home, though things about her health were discovered, and it wasn't all great news. Her spay surgery revealed that she had hydrometra – which is the accumulation of a sterile water or mucous secretion in the uterus. In addition she had a small mammary tumor, which was removed. Her mouth and face were extremely sensitive because the 4 remaining teeth she had were so rotten that pus came out when the teeth were removed.

The other bad news was the vet determined that Bella had Grade 4/6 heart murmur. She had an echocardiogram, which confirmed that her heart murmur is due to Mitral Valve Regurgitation (MVD) – this means that her mitral valve is not working like it's supposed to. The vets said that the MVD is considered mild at this time and she didn't need any treatment/meds, but it may worsen over time. Even with that news her new mom didn't care. She is ready to take Bella into her life, and her heart, and her home, and give her the forever life she needed and deserved. Her new mommy will care for any medical issues that may come up as she gets older and will be there for her until the very end. Bella will be the only dog in her life. Bella will be surrounded with everything she needs now and may need in the future to insure that she has a long and happy life forever.

Rex and his new mom. I love my mom

I have a new home and a new mom
Rex

3-13-19 Rex was adopted today. This adorable 7.5-year-old fellow's former mom could no longer care for him due to her declining health and becoming more and more frail. Rex was becoming confused, anxious, and protective of her. He was being shuffled between family members and being boarded at the vet clinic during the many hospitalizations his former mom was having. Rex is really a sweet dog, but all these changes and the fact that his mom was not there for him anymore was taking its toll on Rex. His former mom's family knew Rex needed to find a stable home where he could get the love and attention he needed for the rest of his life. When Rex became a United Yorkie Rescue dog his foster mom promised him that is exactly what she would make sure he got. Today that happened for this wonderful little guy. Rex will be the only pup in his new mom's life. There is a nice fenced yard and she promised Rex lots of walks and trips to the dog park in case he wanted to play with the other neighborhood dogs. He will share her bed and her life every day for the rest of his life. Rex is so happy, and has given his new mom lots of kisses already. He has the home his foster mom promised him he would have. Happy Tails sweet Rex. Home again, at last.

My new mommies love me so much.
Diva

3-3-19 Sweet Diva was adopted today. What could be sadder then having your mommy die and then be left in your house all alone for over a month? This sweet girl 3-year-old darling was living in a house - alone - for over a month with someone coming in maybe once a day to throw some food down on the floor for her. Her owner died and no one was willing or able to take her. She was not taken out, she was not walked, she was not loved and cuddled and cared for. She lived alone in the house that reeked of her urine and feces. Finally, her kind neighbor approached the person who came to feed her and asked if she could help find Diva a home. That is how Diva became a United Yorkie Rescue dog. Her foster mom took her to the vet, had her bathed and groomed, and loved her every single day. All she needed now was her forever home. That happened today. She was adopted by two wonderful mommies who have promised her to never ever ever leave her along again. She will always be loved and cared for until her very last day, which won't be for a long time. She has a fur brother to play with and a fenced yard to run around in and mommies who work from home. Diva is so happy her tail can't stop wagging. We are so happy for Diva. Nothing but happy days for her every day forever and ever.

Max and Lexie have a wonderful new mom and daddy

Just chilling out and feeling good. I have been adopted
Max (and Lexie)

2/23/19 Max and his sister Lexie were adopted together today. These two adorable, tiny, 11 year old seniors found the most wonderful forever home. Max and Lexie were reluctantly surrendered to UYR because one of their parents had serious health issues, and their other parent was so busy caring for their sick parent, that they were no longer able to care for these two pups the way they needed to be cared for. They wanted them to have a wonderful and loving second home and knew that United Yorkie Rescue would place them together in the perfect home, and today that happened. Their foster mom knew their ideal home should have a mom and/or a dad who are retired and have lots of time to spend with Max and Lexie. Max and Lexie now have a new mommy and daddy who are home all the time and are ready to give these little pups all the love, and care, and attention they will ever need for as long as they need. When they met their new mom and dad their foster mom said she had never seen the two dogs look so happy and be so playful. It was love all around. Max and Lexie have found their forever home and it will be forever.

Emma Grace

2/20/19 Update: I always say God has a plan and this was shown to me once again when sweet Emma Grace came into rescue. She was the stinkiest baby I have ever rescued from a shelter, and had been so neglected for way too long. Immediately I was getting text from a gentleman asking all about her and just so full of love for her story. Surgery for her spay and mammary tumors took a toll on sweet Emma Grace and she suffered a stroke or seizure in recovery and came home with some neuro deficits. I brought her home and have worked daily with her. She walked the walls, she walked into walls, she had sight and she could hear but she was what I say slightly "lost". She loved to eat, she always went potty outside and eventually started running out the door to go outside and running back inside when through. She played with my hand and she wanted to play which was a plus. Yesterday she and Bella actually played! This little girl has a road back but Ron and Phyllis never stopped loving her and today she is tucked into their arms to bring her down that road full of love furever.

Tiger

2-8-19 Tiger was adopted today and went to his wonderful forever home. Tiger was sadly surrendered by his owner who had him since he was only 7 weeks old. His first mommy was no longer able to care for him due to her own medical issues and wanted Tiger to have a family who could love him forever and ever. Tiger loved to be the only dog in his first home. He liked to have his family all to himself. He needed that in his forever family to be happy. He loves walks and fun and playing and just having a great time. Today Tiger got all that and more. He is the only dog in his new home and all the love and attention he needed and wanted he will get, and it will be his and his alone. He has a fenced yard and can run and play and have all the fun he wants. The best part of all this is that his new mommy and daddy will be home all day long to be with Tiger to play with him and to love him forever.

I love my new mommy
Lolli Pop

2-7-19 Lolli Pop was adopted today. Lolli Pop went to her forever home today, and it is the perfect one for this little 4.5 month old puppy. Lolli Pop was sadly surrendered because her mommy was not able to care for her. Not only that, but Lolli Pop being a puppy tried so hard to play with the house cat and that didn't go well for her at all. Like all puppies Lolli was energetic and always getting into puppy trouble. However, her new family is ready for her and she is ready for them. She has a stay at home mommy and daddy which is just want she wants and needs to work on her puppy manners. She loves that there are no other dog in the home to get the attention that Lolli wants all for herself. She will have friends around her, but not in her house because Lolli Pop isn't a very good sharer of her people. Lolli Pop has a big fenced yard, just perfect for a puppy to run around in to use up her puppy energy. Lolli is so happy with her new family and her new life. We know that this is a happy tails forever for little Lolli Pop.

Hank

1/21/19 Today Hank, after much love, rehabilitation and care went to his perfect Forever Family. They adore him and he has settled in beautifully with his new fur siblings and his new mom and dad.

Hi everyone! Those of you asking and wondering about my sweet UYR Hank, let me tell you, Hank is doing sooo good, sooo sooo good. He's happy and so very much loved that "I" am finally falling into place now. I wanted so bad to fail, but I knew God has his plan for me and this blessed little one. When I talked to Kelli and Barry my heart just knew God sent them to me. I get pictures all the time and a good night kiss from him...I couldn't have asked for more! What I have learned through this year plus with Hank is that we are OK, and actually, we are better apart. You see when Hank was put into my arms after such a horrible evil person abused him and broke him, I was his safe haven. I was his rescue angel and protector. Although it took over a year for his bones to heal, his emotional fear was heartbreaking to see and hear. He feared being alone for fear he maybe hurt again, and he feared me taking him anywhere and leaving him out of fear someone in that home might harm him. I became his only safety net. Like a mother with their child you wan't to protect and kiss the bobo or fix whatever is hurting your child, so my life became one that surrounded around his security. I decided to try an experiment with Marene and had her meet me in a parking lot and I handed Hank over to her. She took him home and there we finally saw Hank become the baby he was intended to be. Now if I had walked into her home and then left, he would have stayed at that door and waited until the cows came home for his protector to return. We witnessed that when I came for a visit a month later! What I did learn is that he can feel secure with the love of another and without fear. I get amazing pictures and tales about his day...my heart is so happy!! Look at this sweet angel. All we add is love ❤
