12/1/20 GREAT NEWS! Zoey has found her forever home.

And a huge BONUS - the resident doggie in the home immediately bonded with Zoey and the two of them are velcro sisters, following each other everywhere.

We are the best looking family ever. I am so happy.

11/22/20 Hooray! Milton was adopted today. Adorable Milton has found his Furever home and he is happy he gets to live on the beach! What a nice view! He has adjusted so well after his Mommy of 7 years had to surrender him since she could no longer take care of him. He arrived with a few challenges but being the smart little pup that he is, he figured things out pretty quickly. He knew he couldn't get by on just his adorable looks. There will be a few more adjustments for this little guy but his new family already adores him, as do his extended family who haven't even met him yet! Congratulations on your new life, Milton!

I have my forever home. I love my new mommy

I have a new brother. He will be my best friend

11-21-20 Chewie was adopted today. Chewies owners were no longer able to help Chewie. He has some severe allergies that they have not been able to get under control. Due to changes in their life and their finances, they were not able to keep up with special allergy medications and the vet visits. They knew he needed to see veterinary dermatology specialist, but were unable to take him due to the cost. United Yorkie Rescue took Chewie and worked with their vet and with Chewie on his allergies. Once we knew they were under control it was time for Chewie to go to his forever home. Today he did. He has a new forever mom and dad who are home at lot of the time. He has a new brother for a best friend, and a really nice fenced yard to play in with his brother. Chewie is so excited to have such a wonderful home. He will get to go on trips and to the park and get taken on nice long walks. It is good that his new mom and dad know all about dog allergies and that is very important to Chewie. He really was not happy feeling so itchy all the time that he scratched and scratched until he would hurt himself. That is all behind him now and Chewie is on his way to his best life ever. Happy Tails to Chewie.

Fur brother Jackson and mom and Cody. It is love.

11/15/20 Cody our little tripod puppy was adopted today. This sweet little 4 pound, 4-month-old puppy was found hobbling along the streets. Some very kind police officers found him. He was severely matted, full of fleas, and without a doubt, even to their non-medical eyes they knew something was terribly wrong with his back leg. The kind officers knew that this tiny puppy needed to get to a vet right away to be checked out. Cody was brought to the specialty vet. The specialist took x-rays of his right rear leg. It was found that this leg was broken in 2 places. The breaks were not new and the damage was extensive. The orthopedic vet felt it was better for them to amputate the leg rather than try an orthopedic surgery that wouldnt necessarily hold, and his recovery would be long and difficult for a puppy, with no guarantee it would be successful. And so, this tiny puppy became an adorable tripod. Heck, he never needed that leg anyway. It hadn't done him any good for a while and he was getting along just fine without it.

Cody was taken in by a rescue who usually took in big dogs. They called United Yorkie Rescue and Cody became a UYR dog the very next day. Cody loved being in his foster home. He gave everyone kisses, He had doggie friends, toys, good food, and lots and lots of love. He didn't miss that leg at all. In fact, this puppy was running everywhere he could. His foster parents knew that it was very important to find the right forever home for Cody and today that happened. He has a stay at home mom, a doggie friend, a wonderful fenced yard, doggie beds everywhere, and toys and toys and more toys. Cody didn't stop for a minute and went from toy to toy to toy. It was toy heaven for him. His new backyard has a lot of great smells and a lot of room for running and playing. Cody has found his forever family and his forever home. He will have love, and care, and kindness the rest of his life. Happy Tails to Cody our little tripod baby.

Winston and new family

11/11/20. Can you feel the love in these two??!! While it's bittersweet, we are pleased to share that Winston was adopted by the cutest mother/daughter duo! We absolutely loved having him and were pleased to help him find his forever home.

Winston was such a pleasure to foster. He quickly adjusted to the pack and family dynamic here in our home. He fell in love with our youngest dog, although the feelings were not returned lol, and became my sweetest companion. He was never far and loved to take long naps in the sunlight by my feet. It's dogs like Winston that make fostering worth it- they truly have not a single bad bone in their body despite the potential abuse and neglect they faced over their life. He experienced severe tooth decay and a mandibular fracture, but you'd never know if he was hurting given his sweet disposition. All in all, we love Winston and wish him the very best in his new home. Happy life Winnie!

Rusty has a new mom. She sure does love him a lot.

11/7/20 Rusty was adopted today. This sweet little guy had a pretty rough start. It started out when he was found very early one morning by the shelter staff leashed onto the door of the shelter. He must have been there all night. He was full of fleas and barely able to walk. He was severely underweight. The shelter immediately took him in and started to treat him. He was listed as critical care. He was anemic and in pain. They did blood work which showed hypophosphatemia, an electrolyte disorder where there is a low level of phosphate in the blood. Although he is not in kidney disease his blood work indicated his kidneys were not functioning as they should be. Rusty was treated for all this in the shelter and remarkably improved in all areas, but he still has more testing and vetting to go through.

The shelter called United Yorkie Rescue and explained they had this little dog that was not a Yorkie but needed us and of course we couldn't say no. In her foster home his foster mom continued Rustys treatment. With proper medical care, good food, and lots of love Rusty thrived. His follow up blood work showed he was perfect and ready for his forever home. Rusty found that forever home today. He has a new wonderful forever stay at home mom, a new dad, and best of all a human sister who will be his best friend. There is a fenced yard for Rusty to run around in and to play in with his new family. We know Rusty will have a wonderful happy life. He will be loved, cared for, and cherished the rest of his days.

Iris has a new family and they love her a lot. Lucky Iris

10-24-20 Sweet Iris was adopted today. This is the story of little Iris. Imagine this--You are in a crate and was just tossed from a car onto the side of the road. You bump your head badly, your eye is seriously infected with a greenish-yellow discharge and bulging, your fur is very matted, and you hurt. Besides the pain you have no idea what your fate will now be. You are confused, sad, scared, and hurting in so many places. As luck would have it a sweet angel found Iris and took her straight to the vet. Iris's angel couldn't afford the cost of the eye surgery as well getting her the spay and dental Iris also needed. After trying everything to find her owner she contacted United Yorkie Rescue. As always United Yorkie Rescue knew they needed to save this adorable, sweet little girl. Iris had her eye surgery and with that eye gone she felt so much better. She had all her vetting and was finally ready for her forever home. Today sweet Iris went to her forever home. She has 2 human sisters, a wonderful mom,, a stay at home dad, a fenced yard, and lots of fun and play time. This wonderful family wanted and waited a long time for just the right pup to be theirs. Iris will be the apple of their eye and be doted on with so much love and attention. Happy, happy days sweet Iris.

10/17/20 Peanut is back in his original home which will be his forever home. As it turns out, the original vet used by the owner misdiagnosed a liver shunt condition. None was discovered so we determined the right course of action was to return Peanut once the owner reimbursed UYR for the vet expenses incurred.

I have the best family in the world.

10-15-20 Sweet Pearl was adopted today. Pearl had a rough start. We are pretty sure she was a breeder dog for a backyard breeder. A dog this small at 5 pounds and this adorable, was the perfect dog to make more and more puppies for someone who only wanted to make more and more money. When they were done with her, she was advertised on Craig's List for anyone who would pay the fee to come and get her. Lucky for Pearl a wonderful, loving family paid that fee and took her home. Unlucky for Pearl the family dog didn't like her and let it be known she didn't want Pearl in her family.

Pearl's first angel knew despite the fee she paid, Pearl needed to go to a rescue where she would be cared for loved until the perfect forever family is found for her. And so, Pearl became a United Yorkie Rescue pup. After a trip to the vet it was discovered that Pearl had terrible teeth, and so many were infected. Sadly, she lost them all, but happily she feels so much better now and nothing could take away from all that cuteness.

Today Pearl went to her forever home. She has a stay at home mommy who was a nurse and a daddy who is home too. Best of all she has a fur brother who will probably be Pearl's new best friend. Pearl will get to have lots of attention with walks and play time and rides to the doggie beach with her new family. Her new mommy and daddy have promised her a life of love, care, and happiness forever. Pearl has a forever family that will be hers forever. Happy Tails to Pearl the best girl in the world.

I love my new mom and she loves me too

10-13-20 Dougy was adopted today. Happy day for Dougy. He went to his perfect forever home. Dougy's new mom knows that Dougy may still need help with his house training and she is ready to do whatever is necessary. She said she will love him no matter what. He will get to go on walks every day, and he will make a lot of new friends at the doggie park in his community. His new mom is ready to take him everywhere she goes that a sweet doggie can go too. He would go to the gym, the community center, and will even get to go on doctor and hair appointments with his new mom. Dougy will get to visit friends with her and sleep with her on the big grown up bed at night. Dougy will be the only pet in his new mom's life. That means all the love and attention will be his. How lucky can one pup get? The answer for Dougy is very very lucky. Happy tails to Dougy the sweetest little doggie.

Sweetie with her new mom & dad

10/02/2020: What a wonderful ending to a rocky start for this sweetie girl. She came into UYR over 4 months ago and was heartworm positive. Sadly, her previous owners did not give her heartworm preventative. She went through heartworm treatment with flying colors, got her vaccinations updated, and recuperated in her foster home.

Sweetie is a kind and gentle little girlie who never really received the attention she so richly deserved. She likely had never been taken on a walk, or allowed the freedom to lie in the sun and roll in the grass outside. She was timid and fearful of all the wonderful adventures that were waiting for her outside, but she soon learned that listening to the gators growling in the lake, and the cicadas chriping in the trees were delightful and so much fun to listen to. She blossomed in her foster home and is now a happy, gentle and polite little girl who loves human interaction and attention.

She will be the only dog in her forever home and that will make her very happy, especially with two loving parents who will spoil her and treat her like the little princess she is. Sweetie, your foster mom will never ever forget you. Have a happy life - the one that you deserved all along is awaiting you!
