Buddy and new mom
Buddy IN

11-21-2017 Buddy has been adopted. Buddy (now Robby) came into rescue with his fur brother, Cody Joe, because their owners could no longer properly care for them. Buddy and Cody adjusted well to their foster home. Buddy has always been a shadow to his Foster Mom. Cody has an adoption pending.

Buddy loves to play ball and tug-of -war. Foster Mom had the chance to babysit with Buddy for a few days after his adoption, and he really was happy to go back to his adoptive parents. He doesn’t have to share with any brothers and sisters now, and he can soak up all the attention and snuggles. He has a beautiful smile.

Toby and new family

11/18/17: I’m home now with my new mommy and daddy. I’d love to thank the Florida team for helping me find my true loving self by flying me to Iowa. My Iowa foster mom took the “bite” out of my personality. I’m living in an assisted living home with my mom Amanda who is the administrator of the home. Our beautiful apartment it right above her office. My dad takes me on long walks every day since he’s retired.

Thank you so much to Caryn G. for finding me, and then asking UYR to help me. I love and appreciate everyone involved in my Happy Tails journey!

Love Toby

Libby and her new mom.

11-7-17 Lovely Libby was adopted today. This wonderful girl lost her first home when her mom got sick and was unable to care for Libby any longer. Libby was very sad. Thankfully United Yorkie Rescue took her in and with the help of her two fur sisters she quickly adjusted to her foster. She was happy in her foster home, but all she really wanted was a home of her own, her own forever mom and maybe even one fur friend to hang out with. Today she got that. She has a wonderful mom, a human sister, and a fur sister who would be just the right friend for her. There will be walks and playtime, fun and games, and love and more love all for lucky Libby.

Harley and his new mom and dad. What a happy family.

10-25-17 Harley was adopted today. This sweet 10-month-old puppy started out life the hard way. Imagine this, you are only 9 months old, still very young, just a puppy, and you are now in your third home. That is what Harley the puppy has already gone through. His first family knew he was getting sicker and sicker and they did nothing. He never saw the vet and he never received any puppy care. He was close to death. Thankfully for Harley, his second family saved him. They took him in and immediately rushed him to the vet where he was diagnosed with pancreatitis, and then it was discovered Harley had a liver shunt - without surgery, he would likely die. That is when United Yorkie Rescue stepped in and this boy made the plane trip with the help of a wonderful flight attendant and the generosity of Delta Airlines to his foster home in Florida. Harley received his life saving liver shunt operation and after healing from his surgery he was 100% ready for his foster home. Today Harley found that wonderful home. He has a stay at home mom, a nice fenced yard, and best of all so much love, attention, and care. Harley will never lack for anything again in his life. Welcome home Puppy Boy, welcome home.

Have you ever seen two such sweet smiling faces? A frequent visitor to Foster's (besties forever) smitten by none other than sweet little Precious. This pup’s new mom has been around this little girl since her arrival. Precious, always smiling, always happy, but not too keen on human hands finally found her furever in foster’s best friend. Here, snuggled up together furever, and to beat the band, Precious shares her home still with foster as she will still visit and will stay when Mom's visiting grandkids at the beach.. All pups are delighted they didn't loose their best friend cause they all know she'll be back to visit real soon! Happy Tails, Precious, you got the best of both worlds, and everyone couldn't be happier.

Early to rise was this little girl . . . she ate quickly, and ran out to potty. This was her big day. She would see if her furever who had been waiting forever would really like her. Her potential mom and foster mom had become almost related as they had sent messages and pictures for over a month predicting the anticipated date of when she could finally leave foster and take a gander at furever. Awaiting surgery due to low albumin then awaiting a biopsy on the mammary gland tumor to finally reveal it was benign had prolonged this day far too long. Now it was finally here. A two hour ride to destination furever was right outside that garage door, and away she went.

Upon arrival, Chapa met the sweetest lady, who had the nicest husband, and they had a little boy pup, not much larger than she, named Snowball. Chapa immediately took to the home, inspecting her territory, getting used to all the big rooms where she could just take off running. A huge deck was off the back of the home opened to a yard that was a sea of green grass surrounded by a beautiful privacy fence. Back inside and down the stairs, she discovered a room almost as big as the back yard where she and Snowball instantly began to run, play and explore.

When Foster Mom asked if she could stay, Mom said “She’s captured our hearts”, and in a New York minute, papers were signed, goodbye kisses exchanged, and Chapa’s furever became a reality.

Daisy Doodle and her new family.
Daisy Doodle Puppy #2

10-15-17 Daisy Doodle the puppy was adopted today. Daisy Doodle was the last of the 3 puppies to get adopted. Lucky Foster Mommy got to spend more time with you. It has been a wonderful and very short 9 weeks that you have been with Foster Mommy and I have loved every minute of it. Daisy is so lucky that United Yorkie Rescue came to her rescue and saved her at just 3 weeks old. She is also lucky that her Mama loved her and cared for her until she was weaned and on her own. She also had her foster mommy that has loved her so very much and has taken such great care of her. But now the best part, Daisy now has her very own forever family to love her forever and ever and ever. Daisy is just over the moon and back in love with her new family. What a very lucky girl you are. Foster Mommy will truly miss you so much but is so happy for you. You deserve the best and you got it!!!

Brett and his new mommy. Happy Together...

10-14-17 Little Brett was adopted today. From the shelter where he found himself when his owners could no longer care for him, to his wonderful foster home, to finally today his new forever home. Brett was rescued from the shelter with a badly infected mouth, horrible dental issues, infected ears, and toe nails grown so long two nails crossed over each other and one grew into his toe pad. This sweet senior was in pain and had been very neglected. After the care given to him by United Yorkie Rescue and his wonderful foster mom, he was finally ready for adoption. Today that happened. He went to his wonderful forever home with his perfect forever mom. It will just be Brett and his new mommy. She will take him with her wherever she goes, on car rides, to the beach, to the park, and around the neighborhood. Brett will spend the rest of his life getting all the love, attention, and care any dog could ever need or want. Happy Tails to Brett. He's such a good boy.
