I have a forever home and a perfect forever family
Sam Spade

2-9-19 Sam Spade was adopted today and went to his perfect forever home. Sam was surrendered to United Yorkie Rescue because his former owner, who had him since he was a puppy, had a serious medical issue and could no longer care for him. Sam is a very sweet and playful boy who loves being near his person or people all the time, and his foster mommy knew he needed a home where he would not be alone very much. Today was a very special day for Sam because his was adopted by his perfect family. He has a stay at home mom and three human kids who are ready to be Sam Spade's best friends. There is a fenced backyard not only for Sam to run around in, but also a great place for Sam and his new friends to spend time in, a place to have lots and lots of fun.

I love my new mommy and daddy

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.

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 ❤

I got adopted. I am so happy.

1-13-19 Rocky was adopted today. Our sweet little fighter, Rocky, was rescued by United Yorkie Rescue 3 days after his scheduled date of euthanasia. He could not be adopted due to his collapsing trachea not being under control, and no other rescue would take him. After many weeks, and numerous trips to the vet, we were able to get his collapsing trachea managed with medication. After being with his foster family for three months, losing some much needed weigh, and having his collapsing trachea under control, Rocky was ready to be adopted and hooray, today he was.

Rocky will be spending the rest of his days surrounded by two fur brothers – a very sweet Maltese and his other sweet fur brother, a German Shepherd, along with his human adopters – There will always be someone home with Rocky. He will never be along again. He even has a fenced yard to hang out in and have some more fun with his new family. Rocky will have a wonderful happy life forever.

Happy tails to our little man....

I love my new mom and dad

12-26-18 Hooray and Happy Holiday Sophie was adopted today! Sweet little 4 pound, 8 year old Sophie went to her forever home today. Sophie came to United Yorkie Rescue when her family realized leaving a little dog in a crate all day for sometimes up to 13 hours, was just not fair to her. With lots of tears Sophie became a UYR pup. She did great in her foster home, only she didn't like not being able to get more attention. Sophie's new mom and dad work from home and Sophie will never be alone again. She has only one fur sister just about her age and size who has already given Sophie lots of kisses and love. Sophie felt right at home in her new home and even fell asleep in her new daddy's arms. We are so happy for Sophie. She found her forever home and is home for the holidays.

Chilling out in my forever home on my blanket

12/23/18 Brinkley was adopted today and he couldn't be happier. Brinkley was with his first family most of his life and at 10 years old he found that he needed a new family. One of the children in his first family became severely allergic to him. Rare as it is, the doctor said it does sometimes happen. The family tried everything, but their little boy wasn't getting better and so Brinkley became a United Yorkie Rescue dog. Besides for have a heart murmur which doesn't effect him at all, he is about as perfect a dog as you could want. And his new family who adopted him today knew it. It was love at first sight for them and for Brinkley. Brinkley will be their only dog and the light of their life. He has a fenced yard which he will love because he likes to run around. Brinkley found his perfect forever home and his new mom and dad found their perfect forever pup. Happy Tails to everyone. Brinkley is home for the holidays forever.

I love my new daddy.

12/15/2018: Hi, It's me, Star. I am here to give you my happy news. I got adopted today and will be moving to South Carolina. In the beginning I did not like my insulin injection. It was one of the reasons my first family had to surrender me. They couldn't help me with my diabetes since I didn't let them give me my insulin injections. At first I fought Foster Mom every time I needed my shot. My Foster Mom has helped me to learn that the shots don’t hurt and she was right. My diabetes is getting better, but I will need a few more of those tests with the vet. Foster Mom has also taught me manners so I can be a good girl with my new family. I now walk on a leash like a good girl without pulling. I also learned about being free in a fenced yard. I am excited to go to a family that has experience with doggie diabetes and has other dogs for me to play with. Thank you UYR for helping me prepare for my fur-ever home and family.
