Braven Scout found his wonderful forever home
Braven Scout

3/30/18 Little Braven Scout was adopted today. It would have been a far sadder world had Braven Scout not been in it. How did such a sweet, tiny 2 pound, 2 1/2 month old puppy end up in a shelter, you might ask? Someone called the shelter and said they found a little puppy in a field. They asked animal control to, “come and get him.” It was a freezing cold day when the shelter worker went out on this call and found this tiny puppy in a box on the front porch. The shelter thought someone had to be searching for this adorable puppy. But no one ever came or called, and after two weeks passed the shelter reached out to United Yorkie Rescue. Of course we would take him. His foster mom rushed him to the vet, where after a through exam he was diagnosed him with a condition called Atresia Ani. This means his anus and possible rectum area did not develop and ultimately resulted in a fistula being formed. This is a tiny opening in the body that develops because of disease, infection, or injury, and if not treated is fatal. Little Scout was being forced, with lots of pain, to defecate through this tiny opening. Braven’s options were either a very expensive surgery or being put to sleep. There was no way UYR would put him to sleep and we went about the business of raising the money quickly to pay for this very expensive surgery. Braven is truly a brave little scout. And to the amazement of everyone, including his surgeon, his new man-made bottom is working great. After his surgery Braven spent the next two months in his foster home recovering while his foster parents learned how Braven would be affected by what the surgery had given him. His foster mom knew Braven would need a forever home with someone with lots of dog experience and someone home most of the time. Without a sphincter muscle when Braven has to go, he has to go, and he needs to be taken out immediately. Braven’s forever home has a mom and dad who are home most of the time, there is a nice fenced yard for him to run around in because he is, after all, a very active puppy, and he has a fur brother and sister to play with. Braven Scout will even start his puppy training classes soon. Life for this wonderful brave boy is going to be filled with love and happiness and nice warm baths to clean his perfect bottom when it needs it. Can anything be better?

Trixie and Abigail and their new mom. Adopted together
Trixie (and Abigail)

3-24-18 Trixie and her sister Abigail were adopted together today. Trixie and her sister Abigail know they were very lucky to have been saved by United Yorkie Rescue. They were originally in a home where they were not cared for at all and were very sad there. They were rescued by a very nice lady and lived in her home for a while. However, she was away from home a lot of hours every day and knew it wasn't the best situation for them. She contacted United Yorkie Rescue and Trixie and Abigail were on their way to their new foster home. Because they were originally in a home with such dismal conditions they never learned proper house training or how to walk on a leash. Their foster mom worked hard with the girls. In spite of all that, their foster mom said they are the sweetest, most loving little girls.

Today they found their forever home. Their new mom is so excited and has already bought them both a whole new wardrobe of the latest doggie fashions. They will get to go on safe golf cart rides and learn more doggie manners. They have wonderful new toys and will make new doggie friends. Their new mom is ready to love these two girls forever and ever. What a great life ahead for Trixie and Abigail.

ZOEY got adopted today. Her forever mom is Linda. Look at the way this woman is looking at her little Zoey! Love at first sight! No if's, no buts....just love!

You were physically broken and emotionally crushed. We watched you heal for 9 months while you taught us lessons we didn’t know we needed to learn. Letting you get adopted is hurting more than we bargained for, but you deserved your second chance at life and so much more! Your new mom was so well prepared to receive, getting ready like a mom prepares for her new baby. So much love in her eyes, heart and touch. Happy tails sweet baby girl. Thank you for leaving a mark in our hearts Zoey...we miss you soooo much already. Happy walks on the beach!

Romeo and his new mom and dad. Happy Tails Sweet Boy
Romeo

3-11-18 Romeo was adopted today. This sweet boy 9-year-old fellow found himself in the shelter with little hope of getting out. No one ever came to claim him. But United Yorkie Rescue sure did. He had such bad teeth and a terrible injury on his right leg. Everyone at the shelter thought that is was a tumor and he may need a big surgery or possibly he would lose his leg. After a visit to the veterinary orthopedic specialist it turned out he had a bone infection and did not need surgery. He only needed a few antibiotic injections. After two injections he was almost walking like new again. We were all so happy for Romeo. This sweet boy got his dental and to have all his teeth removed, but that's okay, he is eating just fine. And today he was adopted. His new fur sister is so excited to have a brother. He has a wonderful new mom and dad who are so excited to have Romeo as their new fur baby. Romeo found his forever family and his forever home. Happy Tails Romeo.

Boda has a place to rest his head forever
Boda

3-3-18 Boda was adopted today. It was a very sad day for Boda and his brother when their owner dropped them off at someone’s house, and then he never came back for them. The very nice lady took care of them for 2 years, then due to her circumstances and the fact she was moving across the country, she knew she was no longer able to take care of them. That is when she called United Yorkie Rescue to help.

Poor Boda. He was 11 years old and only 4 pounds. He needed to see a vet, get his teeth fixed, and he needed all his vaccinations. Who would want an older dog who needed all that care? But his foster mom and dad told him not to worry. They assured him they would take good care of him and get him all fixed up, and someone would surely want such a sweet boy.

The minute his new dad and mom met Boda they knew he was the boy for them. Boda and their dog immediately loved each other and were friends the instant they met. Today they officially adopted sweet little Boda and took him home with them. They have promised to love and care for Boda for the rest of his life. Lucky Boda, he now has a stay at home mom and dad, a wonderful fur sister, lots of toys, all the doggie beds he needs to rest his head, and the peace of knowing that at 11 years old he found his forever home at last.

Luke and his beautiful new forever mom
Luke

02/25/2018: Luke went to his forever home today. His new mommy previously adopted from UYR and her little one had gone to the Rainbow Bridge. She read about Luke when he first came into UYR almost 5 months ago and has closely followed him in the hopes he could become her Forever Ours. His mommy works from home, so Luke will get lots and lots of attention and love. Have a Happy Life, Little Luke. You will always - always - be in your Foster Mom's heart!

Here's a note from Luke's new forever mom:

I was looking for a sweet loving little dog. After reading all the bios many times, I knew Luke was exactly who I was looking for. Luke's foster mommy gave a very detailed description of a special boy. I made application - waited......finally got the call for a meet and greet with Luke and it was love at first sight! Luke has settled into his new home and surroundings nicely. He is happy, playful, smart, and the sweetest boy ever! He is absolutely the perfect lil guy and my best friend. Many thanks to UYR for bringing us together. Luke and Joy 4-Ever!!

Dexter found his forever mommy and daddy.
Dexter

2-17-18 Dexter was adopted today. This adorable 6 year old fellow had been in 3 homes in his short life. He needed just one more home that would be his forever home. In his foster home he learned the proper doggie manners he hadn't learned since he was moved so often. He learned to walk nicely on a leash, he learned to do his business outside, and he learned that he can trust people. Today Dexter met his new and forever mommy and daddy. They all loved each other so much from the minute they met. Dexter will be so loved. He will get so much attention and have a house full of toys and doggie beds. The best thing of all is that Dexter is home to stay and it will be forever.

Coco Puff and Peanut get to stay together forever. Best friends always
Coco Puff

2-16-18 Coco Puff was adopted today. Coco Puff and his friend, Peanut, came to United Yorkie Rescue after their mommy had to go to assisted living. Coco Puff and Peanut were not bonded but were good friends. Luckily for them, they were able to find a mommy that wanted to adopt both Coco Puff and Peanut even though she didn’t have too. She just knew it was the right thing to do for these sweet boys. When they went to their new home, they found plenty of dog beds (even a human’s bed that they will sleep in every night), toys and new fur friends (including 4 rabbits and a cat). It was so much fun sniffing the rabbits and they immediately made friends with the resident cat. They also discovered that they will have an “Aunt” as well who will be home with them all day and give them additional love. Coco Puff and Peanut said they will miss their foster mommy but are delighted that have found a furever home that will provide them with the love they deserve.
