Libby
Libby

Little Libby was found in a box in a shopping cart in a hot south Florida parking lot. She was all of 2 1/2 pounds with no hair due to demodex mange. She had mites in her eyes and ears along with a hernia and bad teeth. We found out about her in October at the Walk for Animals in our town. United Yorkie Rescue was there with some of their dogs. We came over to talk to them with our little not quite 4 pound Yorkie, Cupcake. I knew we had to have her. That next day I filled out the adoption papers and waited. When Libby's foster mom called me I was beyond excited. When we all met Libby in November it was love love love. Libby came to live with us permanently December 1, 2009. Her mange treatments were completed and her hair was coming back in.

Libby is about the sweetest thing ever. She is loving and playful. She does like to try to eat whatever she finds on the ground, but will "leave it" when told to do so. She is enjoying her sister Cupcake and the two share lots of toys and fun. She has a great fenced backyard to run around in and rarely has an accident in the house. She loves to snuggle with us and, although it a little crowded, we all sleep together on the bed. Each girl has her own little bed and they sleep up by our pillow. Libby's new furever dad made a ramp for her and Cupcake so they can get up and down on the bed easily. Libby gives the biggest greet to us when we come home and follows us all over the house. Her greatest pleasure in life is just being with us. Although it is hard to reconcile that someone would just throw her away like that, we feel so lucky that she came into our lives. You can see what Libby looked like at the time of her rescue on the Yorkie Rescue You Tube video on demodex mange. And, look at her now. She was a little dog just waiting to die, and now at 3 1/2 beautiful pounds she looks forward to everyday and loves her life to the fullest.

It is a wonderful happy tails ending and beginning for us all. Ilene, Steve, and Cupcake

Jabulie and new mom
Jabulie

UPDATE 12/05/09: Here's an update from Jabulie's (now named CoCo Chanel) new mom:

I am so happy that I found little Coco Chanel (Jabulie) at UYR. Her foster mom Dianne and foster dad Ray took such good care of her. They are absolutely wonderful people who truly love animals. The time they give to foster and care for so many forgotten dogs is amazing and humbling.

Coco (Jabulie) is a sweet little girl who loves to play and have fun with other dogs. She was a bit scared when she first came to my home but within just a few days, she feels right at home. Thanks to her wonderful foster parents, she eats well, goes outside to potty and is very well behaved. Everything is new to her; it's so much fun watching her reactions to all her new experiences. She is just a joy and I'm so glad to have her. I would recommend anyone looking for a new pet to please adopt. There are so many animals who need a home and it may take some time but I assure you, you will find the right one for you. Coco is a gift that I feel privileged to have received.

Susie, Coco's new FURever mom!

Hi everybody, it's Jabulie - guess what? I got 'dopted today and I'm sooooo happy in my new home with my new mommy - she's very pretty and sooooo nice. She talks to me really sweet and soft like Foster Mom did and I like that cuz I'm a 'delicate lil' flower' - that's what FM called me, hehe! Oh, and my new mommy gave me a brand new name - I'm now CoCo Chanel - she said that was a berry famous lady who made par-fumes -- what's dat? Anyway, I have wots and wots of doggie cousins and na-bors to play with here in my new home. I miss my sissies Amahle and Sizani and I hope that dey will find wunnerful homes like me; I really miss my mommy too - she took such good care of me and my sissies.

My new mommy walked me down to visit with the na-bors and their doggies; I was kinda skeered at first cuz they look very different from my foster brothers and sissies, but I think I'm gonna like to play with them when I get to know them better.

I wanna thank my Foster Mommy Dianne & Foster Daddy Ray for making sure me and my sissies and my mommy didn't die in the shelter, and also my Auntie Jill for coming to the shelter to pick up all of us and keeping us for a few days, Auntie Jenn for transporting me to my Auntie Casey who over-nighted us, and my Uncle Andy for getting me to my foster home. Whew! I gots a big people family, huh?

FM said all the time that "UYR ROCKS".....I think I know what she means now. UYR rocked me right into my new furever home with my new furever mommy...............

Later, CoCo Chanel f/k/a Jabulie

Sydney
Sydney

Press Bulletin:

For immediate release to News wires and all interested parties

From the Office of the Gentleman-In-Waiting (GIW) Regarding:

Her Serene Highness (HSH) Princess Sydney,

And

His Exalted Highness (HEH) Prince Gus.

Their Highnesses would like to inform their subjects and all interested citizens that the court welcomes the arrival of her Serene Highness Princess Sydney to the kingdom. Her Serene Highness, a direct descendant of the famous Bard from Stratford-Upon-Avon, would like her subjects to know that she now claims the lands known as Sussex-Upon-Backyard as her own and for her diversion and pleasure. Previous occasional users of her lands (squirrels, a coterie of various birds, lizards, and other assorted creatures) should know that Her tolerance for their presence is limited and should they abuse their privileges Her Serene Highness will not hesitate to inform them that they have overstated their welcome.

Being of sound mind and good health the Princess would like her subjects to know that presently she is settling into what she calls a “satisfactory” daily routine with final judgment to be rendered at a future date. Her breakfast consist of a variety of nutritious comestibles followed by a multi-vitamin. This is followed by a walk around the surrounding estates and a period of rest which last approximately until the noon hour after which Her Highness conducts an inspection of her lands to ensure their proper care and evict any lingering intruders such as those previously mentioned. (HSH conducts these inspections several times during the day as part of her royal duties). As the day progresses, Her Serene Highness may enjoy and occasional moment of play or a restful restorative nap that re-energizes her for the remaining duties of her daily schedule.

As dinner time arrives HSH will partake of a nutritious meal, although she will often demand to sample the less flavorful samplings that her subjects may be consuming at their dinner table. The evening continues with another walk-about of surrounding lands and a return to her chambers to commiserate about the discharge of her responsibilities. After a few hours of rest which includes a rubbing of the royal ears, back, and tummy by the Gentleman-In-Waiting HSH is ready for her final daily walk-about before retiring for the day.

His Exalted Highness Prince Gus would like everyone to know that he is closely watching HSH’s accommodations and routines to ensure that there is an equilibrium between His and Her duties. This is important ,according to the Prince ,in order to prevent any mis-perceptions by their subjects that there is an imbalance in the time that royal courtiers spent attending to each of their royal highnesses. The Prince expects to render a more substantive judgment at a future date. However, loyal subjects should not be overly concerned since His Highness knows that he is loved and cherished by all.

All questions regarding the welfare of either of their Highnesses should be submitted in writing to the court’s Gentleman-In-Waiting.

Andy enjoying his new home
Andy

Andy is doing very well. He and Jack play all of the time. Their favorite game is chase, Andy runs around and Jack chases him. Jack really likes having another dog to play tug with. Andy loves, loves, loves to go for walks around the neighborhood. He gets so excited when he sees the harness that he jumps up about 4 feet in the air, and we have to calm him down just to get the harness on him.

Andy is making progress in his potty training and he will be going to obedience classes soon.

Wally and new mom
Wally

My name is Wally. I'm a sweet older fella who somehow found my way into a high-kill shelter. That's where UYR foster mom found me when she was coming to see the Yorkies. I wished and wished I was a Yorkie and maybe if I had a Yorkie disguise she would take me home. Lucky for me, she took me anyway!

Now I am living the life with my own FURever mommy who loves me so much. She says she's never going to leave me and will love me FURever. Thank you UYR for loving me even though I'm a Yorkie Wannabe!! Love, Wally xoxo

Dora

Home at last
Dora

Dora (now named Dory) is such a joy. She

has added so much to my life. My sister and I laugh all the time just watching

her. Her house training is going well. She had a good head start with Jill.

Thank you so much for the opportunity to have her. You all do such a

wonderful service.

Mia & Fatty Maddie

Maddie, is also a UYR rescue
AZ Mia

Hi, this is Mia and Fatty Maddie (neighborhood kids gave her the adjective). Mia I brought back from Arizona. She is blind from an attack over food and the owners did not want to pay for eye surgery. She owes her life to a vet who refused to put her down and United Yorkie Rescue for her rescue.

Maddie I adopted when the owner who I think used her for breeding didn't want her any more. She arrived with gum disease, an abscess on her butt and fleas. She is the Queen Bee now with her own carriage and the cutest face I have ever seen. Linda in Boston

Sofi & fur siblings

Sofi
Sofi

Hey Everyone, Sofi here. I am doing great. Here is a picture of me with my

fur sister, Emmi (also from UYR) and fur brother, Ernie at Halloween. Crazy

Mom likes to dress us. Well, what can I say, I am loving life, and Mom and

Dad love me. During the day I play in the backyard or sit on a chair

looking out the window. At night, I sleep on my own pillow at the head of

the bed. I never thought I could be so spoiled.

My journey started with a broken front leg and after having a fixator on it

for many months, the leg never mended. I had my leg removed, and honestly,

what a relief. I run just as good as any four legged friend, and I don't

have the fixator on my leg any more. I want to thank UYR and Foster Mom,

Jenn, for taking such good care of me and finding me a home where I am loved.

Wrigley and Ashley
Wrigley

Wrigley is doing great! We are so shocked how fast and well he adjusted here. The first few days of picking him up it was only me actually trying it out, since then he has let Josh pick him as well. He is great with everyone. We do notice if he is up high on the bed or couch with me and Josh walks into the room he gets a little frightened for a second or two but then be crawls over to Josh and gives kisses. He is getting better with that though.

He absolutely loves to go on walks, so we walk them atleast 3 times a day. He hangs out all day with Josh, Kuma and the cats and just relaxes in his nice comfy bed. He has gotten into a cute habit of waking up 15 minutes or so before the alarm goes off to cuddle in the bed. :) It is very cute.

We are so happy with him and we can tell Kuma is as well..she is always on cloud 9 these days.

Thanks again!

Ashley & Josh. xo

Chloe, formerly known as Lucy
Lucy

Hi everyone! My name used to be Lucy but I didn't know my name so my new family named me Chloe. I’m doing very well at my new home! I have an older but much larger sister named Macey. She loves me and I love playing with her! She is so much fun to chase around the house and yard. I actually think we are the same size even though I weigh 11 pounds and she weighs 100 pounds.

I'm so happy with my new family! I'm getting all the love and attention I deserve. The kids love to play with me and carry me around. My dad sleeps on the couch with me and puts me in his jacket while we are playing on the computer. I think I might be getting a little spoiled! I follow my mom everywhere she goes. She loves taking me on walks several times a day and let's me get lots of exercise! I am finally at home with a family that loves me. Life doesn't get much better than this!

Monty and new parents

New parents, and Monty in foster mom Amy's arms
Monty

Monty (now Bailey :) is a blessing in our lives! He is the most loving, well-adjusted, spunky little puppy. We couldn't have asked for a better dog. He loves being outside and does a little dance every time his leash comes out. The only thing that can MAYBE rival a walk is food! He loves to eat and is not picky at all, dry food makes him happy as can be.

Every morning he sleeps until we wake up, but as soon as we stir, his little teddy-bear face pops up and he stretches his arms out and crawls over for a cuddle. He loves cuddles in the morning before we get out of bed and at night before we go to sleep. And when you pick him up, he's like butter in your arms. When he's not sleeping or cuddling, he's playing with his squeaky toys! He loves to run after them when we throw them and then secure them by racing to his bed with the toy in his mouth.

He loves his golden retreiver brother, Cody, and meeting other dogs on all of our daily walks. Everyone in the neighborhood knows his name! And any visitor to our home is greated with a dance and and a doggie hug as he stretches his litte furry arms up their legs. Everyone thinks he is so cute - we have a lot more visitors these days!

When we first got him, he was constantly darting out the door and running away. It was very scary and we were so nervous we were going to lose him that way. But he has calmed down big time. We got a doggy-gate at the top of the stairs and I am working on training him to sit and stay at the door every time we go out. He must wait until I step outside and tell him he can go. This is helping him learn some "door manners" so we can keep him safe! And he is so smart, he's picking it up fast. He can also sit, stay, lay down, come and get down on command.

Adopting Bailey from United Yorkie Rescue was the best decision we ever made. I don't think we could have found a better dog in the whole wide world, we love our little man - thank you!

Murphy, Morgan, Frankie
Murphy

Here are some pictures of the boys, all three of them, Murphy, Frankie, and Morgan. They have become best buddies and race around the back yard like maniacs. Morgan is very careful not to be too rough with the little ones, but they are both pretty scrappy little guys. They let us know if someone is coming near their house or yard and are ready to tear them limb from limb.

We dearly love our boys, and are so happy that we have all three. They went to our vet to be introduced and give him their papers. Murphy and Frankie are going to be groomed on Sep. 13.

Will give you an update in the fall. Let us hear from you from time to time.

Chico and his new family
Chico

Hi Auntie Jenn, Tito here......I am sure you would be glad to know that I’ve been eating all my veggies, I love green beans, carrots and apples, but then again I’ve always had a very healthy appetite.

I am getting used to my new neighborhood, I love going for long walks and exploring my new hood. There’s lots to see and meet. So far in the first few weeks I’ve been here

I’ve been able to swim in the pool and chase squirrel (don’t worry auntie I don’t hurt them, they are on the other side of the screen) it is so much fun trying to catch them.

I’ve also tried my best to be a good boy, but I’ve had some accidents in the house, nothing to worry about, I’m working on that and I am also working at not being a mean, dominant Boy I turned to when I’m under the bed.... I growl and nip at anyone that tries getting me out from there…don’t they understand that I’ve claimed all that space for me???... well anyway my parents are really very patient with me and w/ a little bit of apples I'm out of there....

Saludos from Coral Springs!!!
