Before I was groomed.. I was so matted.

Brody

Brody is a 2-3years old 10 pound yorkie mix boy who is being fostered near Palm Coast, FL. Out of State Applications will not be considered for Brody.

Updated Bio 2/18/24: Hello everybody, Brody here. Well, I have come a long way since I first came into my foster home. It is going to take a long while for my hair to grow in for me to look like the Morkie that they think I really am. I was so matted that they had to shave all of my beautiful locks off. But I am still a beautiful super sweet little boy even without my long hair.

It was first thought that I was about 5 years old but the doctor says I am more like 2-3 years old. I do need supervision, as I am still more like a high energy puppy and I like to chew things I find around the house like your shoes. My foster mommy is also trying to teach me manners so the I stop jumping on her when I get excited.

I love my foster mommy and I just like being with her in her lap or where ever she is. I am still a bit skiddish and loud noises definitely scare me. I am learning new things every day. I will walk a little bit on a leash but I am still unsure of leash walking. I like car rides and I am a good little boy in the car. I do have potty accidents in the house but I have not had my neuter yet but it is scheduled for March 2nd. Hopefully this will help with down my desire to mark in the house once my hormones calm down after the neuter.

I am learning how to walk in the grass as before I was not familiar and wouldn’t leave the back porch. I get along with other small dogs in the house but since I have so much energy and they are a little smaller and older, they don’t want to play with me. Being that no one knows my past history, my foster mommy doesn’t think I had very much love or attention in my past, but I am sure getting it now and I sure do love the attention, cuddles and just being with my person.

Initial Bio 01/27/2024: Meet sweet Brody. He has just come into rescue from a local shelter as a stray. We can not wait to see his personality when he gets all the settled into his new foster home. Stay tuned for updates!

I am going to the groomers soon and I can't wait.

I feel so much better now!
Florida
Daisy

Daisy is a 1.5year old 9 pound yorkie mix girl who is being fostered near Lessburg, FL. Out of State Applications will not be considered for Daisy.

Updated Bio 2/10/24: Daisy is an adorable, young, one and a half year old little girl. She is most likely a Yorkie mix. Daisy came to us a matted mess. Her groomer couldnt get scissors through the mats therefore she had to be shaved completed down. A once chubby, dirty brown dog became a perfect 8.8 pound, beautiful young dog, who will be an even more beautiful tan and blond girl when her hair grows in.

Daisy is doing well in her foster home. It is the first time in her life she is getting the love and care all dogs need. Unfortunately she never had any training in puppy manners including house training. Why would a dog that was so seriously neglected and then who found herself on the streets need proper training or even had someone who loved her enough to do that for her?

In spite of her time on the streets Daisy is an affectionate, happy little pup. She loves people and she loves to give kisses. She will give kisses to anyone who takes the time to give her the cuddling she loves. She was insistent from the second night in her foster home, she would sleep with them in their bed. She wants to always be around her people and have them near her. She does well in the car and walked fine on the leash for a short time, then got confused as to what was expected of her. We are working with Daisy but there is a ways to go with her training.

Daisy is fine with the other dog in the home, through she does not interact with him at all. She is all about people. They are her reason for being. We are not sure how Daisy would do with kids or cats. We have not yet heard her bark, though we think there is a bark somewhere in her.

Daisy needs a forever home with a family that will understand she will still need time and patience and consistent training with her puppy manners. Daisy needs someone home a lot of the time. People and a lap to cuddle with her on are what is important to Daisy. A home with a fenced in yard would be great for Daisy. She loves to explore and be outside.

Please keep in mind, Daisy is a very young girl. She will most likely live around another 13 years. Daisy will need a home with a family that can promise her that they will be with her for her whole life, her forever family until the very end.

Daisy will be ready for her forever home around February 19th when her spay is healed. If you are ready to commit to this special little girl please submit an adoption application for her.

UPDATED BIO 2/1/24: Daisy is the sweetest little girl. She loves people and loves to give kisses. She plays with toys a little and will fetch them, but not sure what to do with them when she gets them. I cant imagine what this sweet, funny, loving, playful girl must have gone through before she became a United Yorkie Rescue pup.

At only 2 or 3 years old her hair was matted to her skin, there was feces stuck to her back end, and she smelled terrible. We couldnt even get to her skin to bath her or even to give her petting and love. She saw the groomer a day after she came to her foster home. The groomer did her best but with the amount of mats and that they were matted to her skin from her head to her tail, she had no choice but the shave her down. She felt that Daisy had probably never been groomed or maybe only once in her life. The shelter said she was a brown dog. But Daisy has a little tan on her face and her body is blonde. There is no brown on little Daisy at all. That was how dirty and vile her hair and skin were. We weighed Daisy on a baby scale before she went to the vet and she was 9.10 pounds. After her grooming, with the mats gone. she was 9.3 pounds. That is over half a pound of matted hair covering her body.

We have only had daisy two days, but we have learned a few things about her. We know her personality is sweet and loving. She was great in the car. She was okay walking to the car leashed, but there hasnt been an opportunity yet to see if she really does walk well on a leash. It is probable she never had an anyone to love her enough to even walk her. Not surprising, she is not house trained, though she will go outside and do her business if she is out when she has to go, but she doest know that is where she is supposed to do all her business yet. Her first night she slept in a playpen, but not her second night. She was having none of it and is has happily joined her foster brother on the bed.

With all the neglect and abandonment Daisy went through, it is amazing she is such a sweetheart. She craves human attention and it is no wonder. She never hade much if any of it before. This little girl is beautiful and when her hair grows back in she will be fabulous.

Daisy sees the vet on Tuesday. She will get a thorough exam, and get scheduled for her spay. We will update you on sweet Daisy after we know more about her medically and as her personality continues to show itself.

Ena
Florida
Ena

Ena is 5 years old and 3lbs. She is being fostered in Stuart Fl. Ena is not available for adoption until a medical diagnosis and treatment plan is established.

Initial Bio 3/3/24: Ena has joined the UYR family today. Her whole life has changed. Her dad died and her mom couldn’t afford to find out what was wrong with her. Ena hasn’t been to a vet in over 2 years. A good friend posted her story on Facebook and UYR was able to help Ena out. Stay with us as we start the journey to return Ena to good health. If you would like to be a part of her new life, donations would be appreciated.

Look at that cute face!

Florida
Gracie

Gracie is a 5 years old 10 pound yorkie mix girl who is being fostered near Vero Beach, FL. Out of State Applications will not be considered for Gracie.

THANK YOU TO GRACIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Tara Pellegrino, Mary Corbin

Updated Bio 3/2/24: Gracie has made remarkable progress in her health journey! Following her ear wash and a round of long-lasting antibiotics, the vet is optimistic about her improvement. The exciting news is that she's now deemed fit for her spay procedure scheduled for March 5. A follow-up appointment on March 15 will not only check her spay progress but also evaluate her ongoing recovery from the ear infection.

Recognizing the potential chronic nature of her ear condition, the vet has suggested Cytopoint injections as a monthly regimen to maintain her ear health. Gracie's current weight is a healthy 9.6 pounds, and efforts are underway to help her reach an ideal weight of 9 pounds through controlled treats and a slightly reduced food intake.

Setting aside the medical updates, Gracie, despite the ear infection she brought from the shelter, is otherwise in good health. The vet estimates her age to be younger than 5 years, and socially, she continues to thrive. Gracie enjoys walks, playtime with the neighbor's Cavalier, fetch, car rides, and chasing squirrels. Her crate remains her preferred sleeping spot at night, while day naps find her snuggled close.

Gracie is a people-loving dog, charming everyone she meets. Despite her affable nature, she does not get along with the two resident Yorkies, requiring firm leadership to establish harmony. As a Velcro dog, she adores human attention and has even formed a cozy bond with the vet.

On the potty training front, Gracie is making excellent strides, with no accidents in the house for the past four days. Although she doesn't signal to go out, a post-meal 15-minute walk ensures both #2 and #1 are taken care of. Maintaining a routine of trips to a grassy area every 3 hours, after naps, and first thing in the morning has been effective.

However, Gracie's vet bills are escalating, and with the upcoming spay, they are expected to increase further. Any contributions toward her medical expenses would be immensely appreciated. Visit UYR.US under Gracie's bio to make a donation and support her journey to optimal health.

Updated bio 2/15/24: Gracie came to Vero Beach and is cohabitating and getting along great with 2 resident Yorkies. She went to the Vet this morning due to her continued chronic ear infection/allergies that she came into rescue with. She was treated with an appropriate fungal/infection antibiotic and given a medication to help her scratching & itching.

She weighed in at 9.8 pounds. The Vet thinks she is less than 5 years & other than her chronic ear infection, is in great condition. She received her last DAPP booster & microchip. She will need a follow up from this before a spay can be scheduled.

All the medical stuff aside, Gracie is so sweet, smart, well behaved, and loving. She is my shadow she follows me EVERYWHERE. So she definitely needs one stay at home owner. She gets excited when she sees her harness & leash come out & Loves car rides. She sleeps in her crate all night, but does occasionally join the bed with her resident sisters.

She is doing great with house training! Still working on her signal to go out, instead of just taking her out. She loves to run with the neighbors dog and will play chase for long periods of time, so it is obvious that she could benefit from having a similar size resident dog. She is not a barker except when someone comes to the door or there are odd noises, then she calms easily with reassurance. No cat interactions to date. She is easy going and friendly with everyone. The person that adopts Gracie will have the perfect companion & pet.

Updated Bio 2/7/24: Gracie is an adorable 5-year-old (possibly younger) yorkie shih-tsu mix. Gracie is a young dog full of life and spunk. She weighs 10 pounds and is being fostered in Vero Beach, FL. This poor girl came in matted and stinky, but is already blossoming into a beautiful young girl.

If you have been waiting for a sweet, loving, playful, high-energy dog, Gracie is the dog for you! She loves to play tug-o-war and loves her toys. She loves her long walks around the neighborhood, but also settles down and snuggles well when she wants down time. She rides well in the car. She is very curious and loves to explore everything and everyone. Gracie is partially housebroken she walks well on a leash and knows how to do her business outside, but she has had a few accidents in the house. Foster mom has been continuing to reinforce her potty manners, but Gracies adoptive family must be willing and committed to continuing her housetraining.

Gracie is very friendly she has never met a stranger. She is very sociable and curious about other people and dogs.

Gracie had her well-doggie visit and will be ready for adoption after her spay. The vet said that she has chronic allergy and ear infections, but we are successfully treating that with steroids and allergy medicine, and she is already markedly improved. The vet reports that otherwise, she is a very healthy girl!

For Gracies ideal furever home, she absolutely needs a home with at least one stay-at-home person to keep her company, because she is very much a velcro dog and does not tolerate being left alone. She does like to run and play, so a fenced-in backyard would be a plus. She likes snuggles on the couch and sleeps well in her crate at night. Gracie is still a fairly young dog, and so she will need an active family who can give her a lifetime commitment of a forever home for the rest of her life.

Initial Bio 01/27/2024: Meet sweet Gracie. She has just come into rescue from a local shelter as a stray. We can not wait to see her personality when she gets all the settled into her new foster home. Stay tuned for updates!

Sweet girl!

I feel so pretty!
Florida
Lily

Lily is a 11 year old 8.5 pound yorkie girl who is being fostered near Dunedin, FL. Out of State Applications will not be considered for Lily.

THANK YOU TO LILY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Peter Hill, Stephanie Slack, Debra Frare, Robert Reyes

Updated Bio 2/21/24: Lily here and I have to share how much fun I am having and how much better I feel!

The medication (Vetoryl) that I am on for my Atypical Cushings symptoms is working very well. I just need one 5mg dose per day and the cost runs around $50 per month. Not too bad. I will need to be on this for the rest of my life, but my Foster Mom gives it to me with a yummy pill pocket and I look forward to it!

We recently went on a camping trip in an RV and I had so much fun! I travel just fine in the car and I slept really well with all that fresh air. There were lots of other dogs around and nice people who kept telling me how sweet and cute I am. My Foster Mom is also so impressed with how well my little legs do. I have two luxated patellas but can run like the dickens when I want to! She says I have a strong will to enjoy life in spite of my little idiosyncrasies.

I am definitely pee pad trained but when let out, I will always go outside. Sometimes I just have to go often, so getting outside may not always work.

Well, that's it for now. Still waiting for my Furever Home and, since I am becoming so attached to my Foster Mom, I know I need a home where I can be attached Furever!

Upated Bio 2/1/24: Lily is doing just great! After being on her medication for 3 weeks, she had her blood tests to check on her cortisol levels and the Dogter called with great news! With just one dose of Vetoryl (5mg) per day, her levels stabilized which means we don't need to increase the dosage. Her Vetoryl costs about $50 per month and has not only made Lily feel so much better, it has stabilized her previous behavior - insatiable hunger, thirst and urinating. Lily is a whole new dog!

She just went on a little road trip and adapted well to each new environment, and although a little shaky at first in the car, she relaxes pretty quickly.

Lily walks really well on the leash and her luxated patellas are only a bit tricky for her when she is on a slippery floor. Otherwise, she walks like a champ!

Small correction re: the number of teeth she has - she was left with 5 teeth, but can eat and chew with no problem.

Lily is pee pad housebroken. While she will always do her business when let outside, if inside and too much time has passed, she will go on the pee pad.

One could not ask for a sweeter little girl. She loves to be near her human and will make a wonderful companion dog to that special someone. Lily wants to know if that will be you?

Updated Bio: 1/19/23 Lily here again and with nice shiny clean teeth after my recent dental! I was left with 10 teeth, which is just fine as I can still eat and enjoy my treats.

The other good news is that the medication I am taking seems to be helping my "Atypical Cushings" symptoms some. Foster Mom reports that I am not as ravenously hungry, I am doing my business more outside of the house rather than on pee pee pads inside the house and I am not as thirsty. We still need some housebreaking work, but my foster mom seems very, very happy when I go outside and then I get a little treat.

But wait! More good news.....I was on a diet and needed to lose a couple of pounds and succeeded! I weigh 8.5 lbs now which, according to the Dogter, is an ideal weight for me. I am a good girl.

I return for more blood tests soon to see if my Vetoryl dosage is lowering my cortisol levels (whatever that means) and to see if we need to adjust the dosage.

The Dogter also removed a mammary tumor, which was benign, but she wanted to be sure that didn't become bad later on. She also took out a couple of warts so, as she said, "I would be nice and pretty for a potential adopter". I thought I already was adorable?

Either way, it is feeling more and more like I can be treated for this and make someone a very happy human! Will you be the human that makes me a very happy dog! If you think I would be a good fit for you please email my foster mom at dunedinrescuemom@yahoo.com.

Updated Bio 1/11/24: Updated bio: 1/09/24 Happy New Year from Lily! It has been quite an adventure these past couple of weeks and here are some things my foster mom has learned about me:

I walk much better on the leash than she thought I would. I have luxated patellas in both my back legs which are, fortunately, causing me no pain. Around the house, I sometimes lose my balance and flop sideways, but when we go out for a walk, I look like I am training for a marathon! She says I walk nicely on the leash too.

I get along great with other dogs and people too. While I am not a big snuggler or lap dog, I always like to be near my person and will follow her wherever she goes. And then I lay down and sleep. I am 11 years old so I sleep a lot, and I like to sleep in the morning too except the other dog in the house wakes up early and wakes me up. But that's okay, because I get a lot of praise and a treat when I go right outside and do all my business.

I do prefer a home with a woman, but men don't particularly bother me. I am a little nervous riding in the car and I love to wander around the back yard and sniff and explore all those wonderful smells!

Foster mom has me on a diet as I need to lose just a couple of pounds, but not too much and we have had some success.

I have had a lot of testing done recently to figure out why I am ravenously hungry all the time, drink a ton of water and urinate constantly. If let outside, I will pee pee there, but I have to go so frequently, foster mom can't get to me in time so I go inside a lot on pee pads.

We learned I have "Atypical Cushings Disease". After spending the entire day at the vet getting blood taken (I was a good girl), the Dogter found that I have extremely high levels of cortisol, which occurs because I have a hyperactive adrenal gland. It's called "atypical" because the blood tests did not show as Cushings, but I manifest all the same symptoms.

The very good news is that it's treatable and, if I take my medication regularly, I can live a normal life and those pesky other symptoms will go away. I am currently taking Vetoryl which squashes the production of the cortisol and we are experimenting with the dosage at this time. The other good news is that my other blood work came back fine and my liver values are good.

I still have to return to the Dogter to have my dental. I may end up with very few teeth, but I know I will feel much better when that icky plaque and bad teeth are gone.

My foster mom keeps telling my I am a very sweet, sweet girl and I am soft like a little Teddy Bear. I bark when I want something, but I don't bark often. She says once we get to the other side of my issues, I will be a very easy and sweet companion dog for someone. Will that someone be you?

Update bio 12/21/23: Lily's foster mom is learning quickly that Lily loves the outdoors and likes to roam around and then relax in the back yard. Due to Lily's luxated patella in her left rear leg, she is not able to do a lot of walking and will sometimes walk with a limp, although she shows no sign of pain. Because of this, a home with a fenced in yard will be preferable.

Lily loves to sleep and eat and can lose a few pounds so foster mom has her on a bit of a weight loss diet. She is mostly housebroken, but if left for awhile, she may have an accident. She is hearing impaired and in order to get her attention, you need to clap very loudly. Her favorite place is near her foster mom, although she is not a lap dog.

Lily's preference would be a home with a woman. Although she gets along with men, she attaches herself to the female of the household.

She will be seeing the groomer and the Dogter soon, so stay tuned for further updates on this sweet little girl!

Initial Bio 12/20/23: Meet sweet Lily. She has just come into rescue after her parents were not able to care for her due to her Mom's medical condition. Lily was very attached to her Mom. Her parents reached out to us to see if we could foster this sweet girl. We can not wait to see her personality when she gets all the settled into her new foster home and gets a day at the spa! Stay tuned for updates!

I am too handsome!

I love to play!
Florida
Luke FL

Luke is a 5 year old 9 pound yorkie boy who is being fostered in Vero Beach, FL. Out of State Applications will not be considered.

THANK YOU TO LUKE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Michael Carr, Nestor Sanchez

Updated Bio 2/15/24: Luke is a great little dog who is looking for a constant companion. He is sweet and silly. Luke loves people and will jump right in anyone's lap. He will sit next to you, in your lap, or on your head if you let him. Luke is feisty and fun. He will play with his toys for hours and hours. If you put them away in the toy basket, he will take them all out one by one. If he can't do that fast enough, he will just knock it over and get them that way. He is very entertaining.

Luke has been here for a week as an only dog and he is really enjoying himself. He doesn't mind other dogs that we see on our walks but we feel that he needs to be an only dog or at least the only male. A female that won't try to take his toys may be fine. We don't really know about cats.

We can't say that Luke is completely house broken but he hasn't had any accidents in that past couple of weeks. He does get outside often and has a strict schedule. He is crate trained and stays in his crate when we are gone. Although Luke was used to being in a crate more than he was out he has found that sleeping in the big bed is much nicer, but he will not have a problem sleeping anywhere.

Luke loves to be outside. He enjoys walking and exploring the neighborhood. He is also happy being in the back yard watching flowers float in the pool. He will bark at people going by or any noises that are not familiar to him, he does settle down pretty quickly. Living in an apartment or condo is not right for him. Having a fenced yard would be great but he needs someone who can walk him often.

When Luke first arrive he was covered in yeast and bacterial infections. He had a double ear infection as well. He received a cytopoint shot for the itching along with antibiotics and was given medicated baths every two days for 8 to 10 minutes each. Most of the infections are gone but he has some really stubborn spots that just won't clear up. The vet thinks that it's caused by allergies, to what, we don't know. We may never know exactly what is causing his problems. Last week he received another cytopoint shot. He may need those for the rest of his life. He is still getting medicated baths every two days for 8 to 10 minutes each and gets wiped down with medicated wipes daily. He wears a t shirt under his harness when we walk to keep him protected from grasses and whatever he walks on. It also keeps the harness from rubbing on his skin. We have switched him to a specialized food to see if it may be a food allergy. Unfortunately, that will take at least two months to see if his allergies are indeed from food. Luke will need someone familiar with allergies and skin conditions who is willing to help him figure out how best to keep him comfortable. Through all of this Luke is still happy and wants someone to be with. He will need someone who is home most of the time.

Updated Bio 1/4/24: Meet Luke, a 5 year old yorkie boy weighing 9 lbs. who was surrendered when his owner's schedule changed and was no longer able to spend enough time with him. Luke is so very sweet and funny. He loves to cuddle, get belly rubs and to be with you at all times. If you throw one of his beloved toys he will bring it back to you every time to throw it again. He loves to walk but still needs a little leash training. Luke is not house trained and he wants everyone to know he is here! A belly band right now is a must but he seems to be getting a little better knowing it is not appropriate going in the house. We think with time and patience he will get the hang of it.

Luke is crate trained and likes to hang out in it. He arrived Monday night with a little rash on his belly. By Tuesday he was really scratching and this poor boy woke up Wednesday with a rash all over, our regular vet is out of town so we got him into a fill-in vet within a couple of hours. She said it was most likely allergies. We know he was loved but not well cared for. When he arrived we noticed that he was shaved, probably in haste to get rid of matting as we found mats in places that were not shaved. He got a cytopoint shot that stopped the itching within hours and his rash is clearing up. He was covered with bacteria and yeast so is getting medicated baths. After one treatment his dull and greasy coat is soft and very shiny. We can't wait to see it when it grows out.

He was put on antibiotics both oral and drops for his ears. He will be here for a few weeks until he can see our regular vet and get the rest of his vaccines. So stay tuned for more updates on this cutie as we learn more about him and what he will need in a new home.

Initial Bio 1/1/24: Meet sweet Luke. He has just come into rescue after his parents were not able to care for him due to a change in living conditions. We can not wait to see his personality when he gets all the settled into his new foster home. Stay tuned for updates!

I'm Handsome!
Florida
Rudy

Rudy is a 7 year old 13 pound yorkie boy who is being fostered near Riverview, Florida. No out of state applications will be considered.

Bio Update 2/15/24: Rudy is such a sweetheart! He barks a lot, but his foster mom is working with him on it. He is 13 pounds and still needs to lose a pound or 2. He loves going on walks, but he is a fast walker. He is a sock stealer and likes hard teething bones. He is getting more and more playful as he gets more comfortable in his foster home. He thinks he is a tiny lapdog and follows his foster mom everywhere. He doesn't seem to care about other animals, but he is used to being the only dog in his previous home. He does not like sharing the attention with his foster brother. He does well with kids.

Rudy's bloodwork came back and he has very high BUN & Creatine levels. He has been placed on subcutaneous fluids once a week for 4 weeks and is now on a prescription renal diet. This does explain his constant accidents inside. His foster mom has been using belly bands, and he has been doing better with going potty outside. He hasn't been able to have his dental yet. Per the vet, his labs need to be more stabilized first. He will need a dental before he is ready for adoption.

Requirements for his forever home:

Fenced in backyard, someone who is home with him most of the time - retired or work from home, someone who can keep up with his fast walking (he is a man on a mission when walking and loves exploring outside), and a home with no other dogs.

Updated Bio: 2/4/24: Rudy is a 7 year old, 13 pound yorkie whose owner passed away recently. He loves going on walks and is always on his foster family's laps or laying in a nearby dog bed. He doesn't know how to play with toys or go up steps. He can be yappy at times and tends to bark at his reflection in the mirror. Rudy is not 100% potty trained, but his foster mom is working with him on it.

Rudy would do best in a home where he is the only dog and at least one family member is retired or works from home. He loves to run around, and his forever home needs to have a fenced in backyard or be an active family who will frequently take him on long walks. He does well around kids 10 and up. Rudy is not ready for adoption due to needing a dental and is awaiting bloodwork results from his vet check.

Initial Bio 01/28/2024: Meet sweet Rudy. He has just come into rescue after his parents were not able to care for him. We can not wait to see his personality when he gets all the settled into his new foster home. Stay tuned for updates!

Georgia
Louie

Welcome to sweet Louie, a 1 year old, 12 pound Terrier mix boy being fostered in Suwanee, GA.

THANK YOU TO LOUIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta

Updated Bio 1/18/24

Louie has quickly become part of the family at his foster parents home. He has made friends with the grumpy old lady cock-a-poo and has been the first one to ever get her to play and the two of them have long tug-of-war, chase, and wrestling matches. Louie would be happiest with a friend his size or slightly larger that he could play and explore with. Louie is still a puppy and investigating the world with his mouth and is continually bringing in new things he has found in the back yard like sticks and pinecones and even leaves. Louie needs to be watched when youre home and crated when you leave because if there is something to find he will find it and put it in his mouth. Louie really needs a backyard to play and run in. He loves to spend time exploring! Louie has exceptional hearing and is very reactive to sounds outside and even on the TV. It will take patience because he feels a strong need to warn everyone that there is something out there. For this reason, Louie would not be an ideal dog for anyone in an apartment or condo. From the beginning Louie has had a strong desire for security and affection. He sleeps in the bed with his parents and loves to snuggle. Louie is not a yorkie but is a wire-haired terrier with a beautiful orange/red coat and white blaze. Louies needs regular grooming and brushing because he does shed. Louie is in good health and is a puppy who should see a long life. Adopters should keep this in mind and be willing to provide for Louie for the next 15 to 17 years.

Updated Bio 1-3-24

Louie is a wonderful pup! We cant believe he is still in rescue! Louie needs to spend more time out and about where he can learn that the outside world and strange sights and sounds arent always a threat. He wasnt socialized very much. We dont know much about his background except that he and a sibling were surrendered and taken into rescue. Louie has not had proper attention before, but he is eager to please and ready to be trained. He is a Velcro puppy who wants his parents attention. He loves to his toys and likes to play and is great at fetch and loves to snuggle up next to his person in bed at night! Hed love a playful friend his size or larger but would also do well on his own. He seems to only be curious about cats and one near swat on the nose and satisfied his curiosity for the moment. He would not be good with a submissive partner, either dog or human since he can get too bossy and protective when really what he needs is to feel secure and protected. Louie is about 89% housetrained and currently wears a belly band in the house. It would be good to have a home where people are around most of the day. Louie hates the crate but will tolerate it for short periods of time. Louie deserves a home of his very own could that home be yours??

He has a beautiful red wire coat and white chin and chest blaze and is currently weighing in at about 12 pounds. He has a mild skin irritation but some medicated baths at home are helping to get rid of the dry itchiness. Louie doesnt shed much now that he is in a stable and much calmer environment. It would be good to have a home where people are around most of the day. Louie hates the crate but will tolerate it for short periods of time. If you want a real companion to spend your time with then Louie is a great choice to fill a home with love and affection.

1-2-24. Hi, I'm Oliver. My family had to make a difficult decision to surrender me to United Yorkie Rescue, so I traveled from Maryland to Rhode Island. I'm with my Foster family and their pack. The first few days have been confusing but I get to have homemade food, treats and plenty of pats. FM says I'm so mellow and I haven't even barked one time, even when the rest of her pack bark.

I go to the Vet for a full check up and updated vaccination on 1/10/24 but this Friday I have a Spa Day. After that, well share a Glam shot of me. I'm sure I will look very handsome!

Updated Bio 2/22/24

Dewey Finn has finally been released from going to the doctor every month for a recheck. His bloodwork is finally normal and his thyroid is under control with the medication. He can have the normal Senior rechecked appointments every 6 months. Dewey will also require an allergy shot on a regular basis for his skin. Dewey had come along way since coming into rescue so sick last August and he is such a fighter. (If you dont know his story please scroll down and read through the previous bios) The fistula that was in his mouth has closed more so he is doing well there. He is maintaining a healthy weight and even loves to play with toys occasionally. Dewey Finn enjoys following Foster Mom all around the house as she moves about and he wants to sleep right next to her at night up under the covers. He is very affectionate and gives kisses. He will bark to let you know he wants to be picked up. Due to his age his skin is very thin and his skeletal structure is fragile. He has a curve to his spine as well. He can see but has some cataracts forming and he is deaf. He is a happy guy and we are glad he is enjoying life right now since United Yorkie Rescue stepped up to help him heal from being so sick. Thank you all for your donations to Dewey Finn! Any questions email foster mom at mandymsmith1@yahoo.com.

Updated Bio 1/3/24

For those that dont know Dewey Finns story he came into rescue after being dumped at a shelter in very bad shape. The shelter immediately reached out to rescue so we could get this little guy the care he desperately needed. He had a real bad upper respiratory infection that developed into pneumonia. He on the verge of not making it when he was hospitalized for three days. He was released from the hospital and on home care with a strict routine and medications to take. With regular visits to his Dogtor Dewey was healed from the pneumonia. Unfortunately scar tissue has developed in his lungs due to the pneumonia, but it doesnt cause any ongoing health issues at this time for Dewey. Although Dewey can see well we did testing and found out he is completely deaf. He gets around great and has a good sense of smell. Dewey had a few very infected teeth left and they were removed. The infected teeth caused a fistula in his mouth that needed to be stitched up. Dewey has had 2 months recheck on his mouth and the fistula is still not closed up all the way. We are hoping this continues to heal otherwise he may need to see a specialist if it doesnt fully close up. In the meantime foster mom has to wipe out his mouth every evening to ensure no food debris causes infection. Also Dewey has some changes in his care last month , due to his bloodwork he has to be on kidney prescription diet , he also has to have an allergy shot on a regular basis and be on prescription shampoo for his skin, he has to be bathed in it every 4 days. His skin and kidney values have improved but His thyroid numbers did not. Now Dewey will need to be on Thyroid medication and we will recheck in a month to see if there is improvement. Dewey did lose a bit down to 3.5 pounds from 4 pounds since last months vet check but seems to be enjoying his kidney food diet now so hopefully he will gain a bit by next vet visit. Dewey Finn loves his routine and will be vocal if he wants to let you know something. He enjoys being petted and he can be playful. He loves bath time and he will give occasional kisses. We are doing monthly Dr visits because this little guy is so fragile. The awesome thing is he seems to continue to fight and improve. Thank you all donating to his special care.

Dewey has been released from the hospital since August 18th. For those that dont know Dewey Finns story he came into rescue after being dumped at a shelter in very bad shape. The shelter immediately reached out to rescue so we could get this little guy the care he desperately needed. He had a real bad upper respiratory infection that developed into pneumonia. He on the verge of not making it when he was hospitalized for three days. He was released to home care and has been going to regular checkups with his Dogtor to make sure he continues to improve. Dewey has shown wonderful improvement within these last three weeks. He is no longer contagious and has been able to be around the other dogs in the home for a bit during the day he just cant get overtired. Dewey has found his voice and will bark if he wants your attention now and he eats very well. He has started to put weight back on. He is still a little fragile older guy and he has a little hump back due to his skeletal structure. He has also developed scar tissue in his lungs caused by the pneumonia. Although Dewey can see well we did testing and found out he is completely deaf. He gets around great and has a good sense of smell. Dewey has a few very infected teeth left and in another month or so we will get them removed and that should help with his runny nose.

Dewey Finn has been a good little patient since being back home with Foster Mom after being hospitalized for 3 days with Pneumonia. He has been home almost a week. He is taking his antibiotics, he doesnt like it but has been swallowing them. Dewey is eating a mixture of soft dog food and baby food on his own licking from a plate. He is drinking plenty of Water. Dewey Finn had a recheck with the Dr. yesterday and had X rays done and it did show improvement on the pneumonia. His sugar level is still maintaining on its own at this time. He will have another recheck in a week. In the meantime he will continue with his antibiotics and rest with his heartbeat cuddle dog stuffed toy that he snuggles with. Dewey cannot be around the other dogs as some forms of pneumonia are contagious so the Dogtor said to keep him separated as a precautions. Any questions email Foster mom at mandymsmith1@yahoo.com.

Updated Bio 8/19/23

After being hospitalized for 3 days Dewey Finn was released today at 5pm. He has been maintaining his sugar and is breathing well on his own. He is still not out of the woods completely yet. Foster mom has to monitor him carefully. He will still have some coughing and some nasal discharge but it is suppose to continue to improve over the next few days. We will have to watch closely to make sure he doesnt have to make an effort to breathe or if he doesnt seem to keep improving and eating on his own then we may end up right back where we started. He has been sent home with 2 antibiotics and a medication to entice him to eat. He is to have a recheck with his regular vet in 7 days and he will have X-rays to see if he is continuing to improve. So Dewey Finn and Foster Mom thank you all for your continued support and prayers of healing. He is a little fighter!!

Updated Bio 8/16/23

Dewey Finn has been admitted to the ER after a recheck appointment at the Dogtor. Dewey was being treated for a severe upper respiratory infection and now he has Pneumonia. He is at the ER hospital and is on oxygen and they will be treating him with stronger antibiotics and fluids to see if we can get some improvement. He is a little guy at 3.5lbs and is estimated to be 13 years old so we arent sure how he will respond to treatment but we wanted to give Dewey his best chance. Please consider donating to his care and sent pawsitive vibes and prayers for this little guy to recover. We dont know any history or where he came from other than the shelter so that doesnt help much but they will be running some tests to see what maybe caused this to happen to sweet Dewey. He has been eating and drinking and been having normal bathroom.

For those that dont know his story here is his initial bio. He has just came into rescue after being dumped at a shelter in bad shape. The shelter reached out to us to see if we could help this small boy . Of course we said yes and as soon as he got to his Foster home Foster mom bathed him and cut out all the knots and matts so we could get a good look at this sweet boy. Dewey has seen our vet and she determined that he has a severe upper respiratory infection. He is on an antibiotic, eye medication and cough medication. Any questions email foster mom at mandymsmith1@yahoo.com.

Updated Bio 8/10/23: When Dewey got to his Foster home Foster mom bathed him and cut out all the knots and matts so we could get a good look at this sweet boy. Dewey has seen our vet and she determined that he has a severe upper respiratory infection. He is on an antibiotic, eye medication and cough medication. Dewey was also running a high fever. The Doctor also thinks he might need to be on thyroid medication but his lab work is off the charts right now and he will need to have it rechecked in a week once the antibiotics kick in. Foster mom is hand feeding him because he feels so bad it is hard for him to eat or want to eat. He will need a dental as he is missing most all his teeth and the teeth he has left are in horrible shape. He will also need to be neutered. That will all be taking care of when he is feeling better. We cant wait to see his personality when he gets all the medical care he needs.

Updated Bio 2/22/24

Elliot is a very chill guy and enjoys spending his days lounging around and being petted. He loves to sleep with foster mom as well. He is a wonderful dog and very well behaved and super smart. Elliot is diagnosed with being on the verge of Cushings Disease which can be managed with medication. As of right now he DOES NOT-have it but all signs of aging is leaning towards this disease. He does have a thyroid issue which is being managed with medication twice a day and he is taking a medication for his gallbladder. He takes his medication easily with food and both medications are affordable. Elliot did have a small turmor removed that was discovered at his last checkup It was an apocrine sweat gland cyst, which is a benign, non-cancerous lesion. It was completely excised, so he should not have one recur at that spot but it is possible for him to develop others in other areas so we need to make sure we continue to monitor. His bloodwork looked good at this visit. Elliot is a beautiful doggie with lots of love and life to give who truly deserves a home of his own. He is not much for going on walks but will go potty outside in a fenced yard and will also use wee wee pads in the house. He does drink lots of water and he will wear a belly band. Elliot would make someone a great companion he just needs some continued medical care to life his best life.

Updated Bio 8/30/23: Hi there yall! Im Elliott and I sure am happy to meet you! I feel like a very lucky guy to have found my way into United Yorkie Rescue. I haven't had this much love, care, and special attention since...well FOREVER! I've only been in my new foster home a short time but Ive been really getting around. I've had lots of time with my Dogtors and they are working really hard to get me figured out.

Here's what we know:

My thyroid hormones are low which is probably one of the reasons I'm a little on the chubby side. Low thyroid is very common in terriers once they get to be adults. The great news with hypothyroidism (fancy word for low thyroid hormones) is that it is very easily managed with a daily pill that is inexpensive and easily given.

I have a few not so great teeth and lots of tartar. I realize this may also cause me to not be very kissable and that is NOT ACCEPTABLE because I love to GIVE AND RECEIVE kisses. However, the Dogtor has ASSURED ME that after my dental all will be well and I will be able to claim my title of CANINE KISSING CHAMP. What a relief!

Here's What We Aren't Yet Sure About

I have some lab values that are mildly out of range. One lab draw showed elevated potassium but in a follow-up test it was normal. I had some mildly elevated liver enzymes, some elevated proteins and this made my care team give me a test for Cushing's Disease but those test results were mostly normal. So then I had an ultrasound of my abdomen which showed that I do have some enlargement of my liver, adrenal glands and gall bladder. My gall bladder is sludgy but I'm taking medicine to help with that too and if I do have stones the medicine should help them dissolve. I had some protein in my urine but that can also be caused by things like dehydration and infection so my Dogtors did additional tests that we dont have results for yet.

So for now my medical team recommends follow-up testing with my primary Vet to monitor me. It is PAWSIBLE I might develop Cushing's Disease in the future but as of now they don't feel tests show I have it and they do not recommend any type of treatment for it.

My plan for the future is to sit back, relax, soak up ALL THE LOVE in my foster home, let my Dogtors come up with my PAWFECT treatment plan and DARE TO DREAM ABOUT THAT AMAZING PERFECT PERSON who might be looking at my photo and reading my story and just knowing that I AM THEIR PERFECT FUREVER BOY!

Updated Bio 8/21/23

Elliot was going to have a dental on the 18th but his bloodwork showed some values were off and the vet didnt want to put him under anesthesia. They have tested him for Addisons Disease and Cushings disease but nothing is confirming to either one of those. So tomorrow he is having X-rays done to see if something may show there and if we cant find anything he will see a specialist so we can get to the bottom with what is the cause of his electrolytes being off. His thyroid is doing well on the medication so that is a plus and he has lost almost a pound which is great news as he is overweight and needs to work on losing a few pounds. We hope to get to the bottom of everything soon so Elliot can have his much needed dental and find a home of his own very soon.

Updated Bio 8/2/23 Hello my name is Elliot. I am looking for a new home because my family wasnt able to care for me anymore. I just turned 10 and I am a bit sad that I dont have a home of my own right now. United Yorkie Rescue has given me a place to stay and Foster mom seems pretty cool I guess. I had to go to the Dogtor for a checkup and they gave me some shots and weighed me and did some bloodwork. Turns out I am a bit overweight I need to lose about 4-5 pounds. They also discovered from my bloodwork that I have a thyroid issue and need to take medication once a day. Its fairly inexpensive and it will help me lose weight and to feel better. When I go on the 18th to get my teeth cleaned they will recheck to see how Im doing after being on the medication a few weeks. I hope a family will still want to adopt me even though I have this issue because I really am a great guy with lots of love to give. I get along well with others and Im not hyper. I promise if you take a chance on loving me I will be the bestest boy ever and give you lots of love. Please email Foster Mom with any questions or fill out an application. I cant wait to meet you!

Initial Bio 7/23/23 Elliot was surrendered along with his brother Bentley by a family who could no longer care for them. Stay tuned as we get to know him better for updates.

Updated Bio 2/22/24

Parker is doing so much better since coming into rescue. The Vet said he looks great!! His skin is all cleared up and his coat his healthy and shiny. He has been diagnosed with early Stage B2 Chronic degenerative valve disease. At this stage of the disease he will be treated with a medication called pimobendan (Vetmiden). This medication has shown to slow down further progression of the disease and prolong the time until the development of congestive heart failure. Parker has no fluid buildup at this time and he has not yet gone into congestive heart failure. He will need a recheck in 6 months with the Cardiologist. Parker will be having his Dental this week and when he is all healed from that he will be ready for adoption. Parker is the sweetest, smartest little fellow. He is pad trained, rides quietly in his crate in the car and he gets along with other dogs. He loves sleeping in his own bed and eats his food right up. He only barks when the other dogs bark. Email foster mom with any questions at mandymsmith1@yahoo.com

Updated Bio 1/17/24

For those that dont know Parkers story. He was surrendered by his owners who said they no longer had the time to provide Parker with the special care he needed. It was disclosed that he had a skin infection but no other issues. Luckily Foster mom sees the same vet that Parker has been seeing so we have a complete vet history on Parker. In July of this year Parker was diagnosed with a heart murmur grade 1. Foster mom noticed that Parker was coughing so the dogtor did X-rays and noticed that his murmur has increased in grades from July till now. The Dogtor was concerned that Parker was going into congestive heart failure and he was referred to a cardiologist. Parker had his appointment with the cardiologist today and it went well. He had an Echocardiogram (ultrasound of the heart) on the Echo he had moderate leaking of his mitral valve. His left heart chambers were both mildly dilated. His right heart chambers were normal in size. His heart function was normal. It has been noted he has a grade 4/6 left apical systolic murmur. He has been diagnosed with early Stage B2 Chronic degenerative valve disease. At this stage of the disease he will be treated with a medication called pimobendan (Vetmiden). This medication has shown to slow down further progression of the disease and prolong the time until the development of congestive heart failure. Parker has no fluid buildup at this time and he has not yet gone into congestive heart failure. He will need a recheck in 6 months with the Cardiologist. Parker has the all clear from the heart doctor to have his much needed dental. At his regular Doctor it was also noted that Parkers eyes have mature cataracts and noted iris atrophy. He does have new pigmentation on his right cornea. This can be due to an infection or the beginnings of dry eye syndrome. He has been on an eye drop medication for about 3 weeks now and improvement has been made. The skin infection is a fungal infection and he has been given oral to take for that and medicated baths. Foster mom also had to give him a haircut down to his skin so the medicated baths can work better. His skin looks so much better he is doing great! All that being said, Parker is the sweetest, smartest little fellow. He is pad trained, rides quietly in his crate in the car and he gets along with other dogs. He loves sleeping in his own bed and eats his kidney care science diet food right up. He only barks when the other dogs bark. Please consider donating to Parkers care. Since coming into United Yorkie Rescue he has improved tremendously!!! We cannot continue to do it without your kind support. Email foster mom with any questions at mandymsmith1@yahoo.com

Initial Bio 12/29/23

Parker came into rescue the Friday before Christmas. He was surrendered by his owners who said they no longer had the time to provide Parker with the special care he needs. When he was surrendered his owners said he had a skin infection which required medication and medicated baths. Parker saw the Dogtor today and a few more issues have been discovered. Luckily Foster mom sees the same vet that Parker has been seeing so we have a complete vet history on Parker. In July of this year Parker was diagnosed with a heart murmur grade 1. Foster mom noticed a cough and the Dogtor did another x-ray; it was discovered that he now has a grade 3 out of 6 heart murmur. Not only that but his heart is larger than normal and his pulmonary (lung) blood vessels appear to be enlarged and congested. The Dogtor is concerned that Parker is going into congestive heart failure. He is being referred to a cardiologist. He cannot have a much needed dental until this is done because we don't want to risk putting him under anesthesia. It was also noted that Parkers eyes have mature cataracts and noted iris atrophy. He does have new pigmentation on his right cornea. This can be due to an infection or the beginnings of dry eye syndrome. He has an eye drop medication he will be taking for 2 weeks to see if improvement is made. The skin infection is a fungal infection and he has been given more medication to take for that and will need to continue the medicated baths. He has also been given furosemide to reduce the fluid buildup on his heart. All that being said, Parker is the sweetest, smartest little fellow. He is pad trained, rides quietly in his crate in the car and he gets along with other dogs. He loves sleeping in his own bed and eats his food right up. He only barks when the other dogs bark. Please consider donating to this little guy. It's hard enough to be giving up by the only family you have known right before Christmas at 12 years of age. Let's help this sweet boy get well and feel better with the best of care that United Yorkie Rescue can provide. We cannot continue to do it without your kind support. Email foster mom with any questions at mandymsmith1@yahoo.com.

Andre
Texas
Andre

Meet Andre, a handsome 2 year old, 13 pound Yorkie boy being fostered in Cedar Park, TX. Only Texas residents will be considered.

THANK YOU TO ANDRE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, David Lavine, David and Diana Lavine, Brandye Randermann, DeAnn Deutsch

Update 1/12/24: Andre is doing great and his limited vision doesn't limit him at all! He loves EVERYTHING! Playing outside, playing in the house, belly rubs and giving kisses. He loves to cuddle and loves to be with his person so if you're looking for a lap dog, he will be perfect :)

He has more testing to be done on his eyes before he can go to his furever home. He is potty trained and has had zero accidents in the house since we got him. He would do great in a family with older kids (he LOVES our 8 year old grandson). He needs a large yard to run and play and would do great with a family with other dogs.

10/27/23 Update: Hello Everyone..I am back with United Yorkie Rescue after my adoption last April. Unfortunately my family had some emergency issues come up and they decided it was best that I find that perfect family that wants a very loving, kissing baby that just wants to play play play with other dogs. I just crave attention so be ready for a lot of love and a shadow to follow you everywhere. I love dogs, people, car rides you name it. If it means I can be with you Im all in.

I am up to date on all vaccines, neutered, dental and I just had my bloodwork done and I am perfect. I had heartworm when I came to UYR last time but I am all well now.

I do have cataracts in both eyes so I will need surgery to remove and place with new lenses. Just like humans. But believe me that doesnt slow me down. UYR is going to look into my surgery so check back for updates.

3/23/23 Update: Andre is just the sweetest little boy ever! He likes to split his time between snuggling and playing. Andre loves cuddling up and giving kisses. He gets along fabulously with dogs of all sizes and genders but prefers bigger female dogs to play with. Andre also loves playing with cats and older children. He would probably love younger children as well as long as they are respectful. He has been neutered and began his treatment for heartworms. He has one more set of heartworm shots left and then he will be ready for his forever home.

1/9/23 Initial Bio: Sweet little baby Andre was found on the streets matted and heart worm positive. On top of that this sweet baby boy has limited vision because of congenital cataracts. Despite having limited vision, he gets around very well. Andre is very friendly and loves all sizes of dogs and also adores cats. He is house trained but usually wears a wrap to keep him from marking in the house. Andre would do very well with most families as he is the friendliest little guy around. He loves giving kisses and snuggling and is always up for car rides. A well secured fence and no pool is a must or someone who likes to go on long walks would be perfect for him. He is currently being treated for heart worms and will be neutered soon.


To date we've spent $1475.72 on Andre's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $350 in donations.

Barney

Barney

Meet Barney, a sweet 5 year old, 8 pound Yorkie boy being fostered in Cedar Park, TX. Only Texas applicants will be considered.

THANK YOU TO BARNEY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Karry Rogers, Robert Torres, Shawn Hudson, Phylesia Glisson, Lauren Radencic, Shawn Hudson, Debra Frare, Stephanie Slack, Wendy Henry, Yvette Vangeloff, Cheryl Scrupski, Shawn Hudson, Gerard Bravo, Olga Stecker, Karen Keaton, Kaitlin Owen, Samuel Cook, Sandy Pagnotta, Jennifer Hamilton, Dan Clauser, Cindy McKimm, Veronica Gonzales, Angie Cagle, Shawn Hudson

Update 1/16/24: Barney continues to improve and has stolen our hearts with his fun, silly, lovable personality . He loves belly rubs, bully sticks, going on walks, and ALL the toys! His favorite is to show off his toys to everyone in the house and he then hides them in his teepee bed.

Hes starting to get the hang of going outside to potty but it's still a work in progress.

He still has a slight head tilt but we are hoping with the additional antibiotics, it will go away in time. He will go back to the Neurologist in around a month, and we hope to have more updates then.

Initial Bio 9/30/23: Precious Barney came into rescue after he was surrendered from a breeder. This sweet baby was in such sad shape. He needed to stay at the vet for about 6 days while they helped him with not only double ear infections, but he had vestibular disorder which made it impossible for him to maintain balance. He was crated at the vet office, while being treated for the equilibrium balance issue. This would aid this sweet boy to keep his ears fairly still while allowing the dizziness to leave and for Barney to get back to feeling somewhat better. Not only did this sweet boy have this going on, he was also having blood in his urine which showed a large bladder stone in his urethra. As we approached day 6, we opted to complete his vetting with his neuter along with the removal of the bladder stone. Barney is now at home with his foster mom and starting all the final vetting healing along with learning what love truly means. He has an amazing foster mommy so we are certain his life will be full of many applications wanting to love on this sweet baby. Please know United Yorkie Rescue could use you help with sweet Barney's vet bill. He was one of 4 breeders brought in at the same time and this particular baby was so blessed to have had us right there to help him through this horrible mess. We thank you all for your donations. If you are not able to donate, please share his story as you never know whose heart it may touch! Bless you all!

Baxter
Texas
Baxter TX

Meet Baxter, a handsome estimated 8 year old, 11 pound Yorkie mix boy being fostered in Austin, TX. Only Texas residents will be considered.

Initial Bio 2/29/24: Baxter is a super happy and healthy yorkie mix who will be ready for adoption soon after he recovers from his neuter surgery this week. His age is unknown but he has the puppy energy of a younger dog, although hes also very happy to lie down next to you or sit in your lap for petting and belly rubs. He is very smart and shows signs that he likes to play. Today he picked up toys when we threw them for him but then dropped them as he is still figuring out his place with the rest of the pack.

UYR took Baxter into our care after someone found him and tried to find his owner before surrendering him to an Animal Shelter. He was matted and missing one eye, but his sweet and happy demeanor indicates he had a loving home in his previous life. He has been with his new foster family for only three days since his neuter surgery and dental (he only lost one tooth), but he has adjusted well so far to new surroundings and gets along well with his foster yorkie brothers. So far he seems to be house trained, but we take him outside for potty breaks often and we put him in a crate at night and sometimes during the day for feeding and resting. He is super smart, not shy, loves walks and being outside exploring the backyard as long as you are with him. If you are interested in adopting Baxter, please fill out an application on the link below.

Feel free to email his foster mother with questions at the email below.


To date we've spent $0 on Baxter TX's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

THANK YOU TO COTTON'S FACEBOOK DONORS!

Crystal Dicosola, Greg Cremer, Karry Rogers, Roxanne Hart, Lucy Hall, Ginger Diane Mills, Dave Scharfenberg

Update 1/28/24: Hey there everybody in United Yorkie Rescue Land. Foster Mom said that I needed to update my biography and let you know what has been going on in my life. If youve read my initial biography (which is below this biography) you know that I was in pretty rough shape when UYR came to my rescue. Although UYR mostly deals with Yorkies, they just couldnt leave me behind suffering. Since being picked up all my health issues have been addressed. My eye was taken out, Ive been spayed, microchipped and have had all my shots at Austin Animal Services the first week of January.

On January 11th I moved north to McKinney to my new Foster home. January 18th, I went to see a new Dogter to get my eye stitches removed and he said that I healed up fabulously. So now its time to get serious about finding my furever home.

Let me tell you a little about what my Foster Pawrents have figured out about me. The Dogter in Austin thinks I am around 6 months old and that I am probably a Maltese. I am a beautiful white boy weighing in at just around 9 lbs. I get along with all the other puppers here, but I want to play more than they do. Luckily I can also play by myself with my toys. I like to move my toys around and wrestle with the doggie beds here. I am not totally housetrained but am working on that every day. I love food so much but maybe that could be because I was on my own for a while. I enjoy exploring the back yard with my sniffer. I also will bark when I see someone walk by the front window and at strange noises I do not recognize. I have free range of my foster home and they let me sleep wherever I want to. I like to test out all the doggie beds, just like Goldilocks but I usually end up sleeping close to my foster hoomans. I am all puppy so I would like a stay at home Pawrent especially since I am so young and will need continued training. Because I am such a little guy if you have children they need to be at least 12 years old and know how to behave towards puppies. A secure fenced yard would be a bonus but absolutely NO CHAIN LINK FENCES only because of the terrible predators Texas has and some of those creatures can climb chain link fences. My foster hoomans are still learning about me so more details about me and my personality will be in my next bio.

So this is what I am searching for so far but that may change in the future.

A stay at home parent to continue with my potty training and other training cuz I am pretty smart and bet I will learn tricks and commands easily.

No kids under 12.

Secure fenced yard is a bonus.

No chain link fences.

If you have a fur dog about my size I would like that but it is not a deal breaker.

No apartments please as I am a barker at this time.

Lots of toys.

Comfy beds and your bed would be my first choice.

An abundance of love.

Some healthy tasty food and I love dry kibble.

Great yummy treats especially training treats.

I am not a fan of crates.

I am not a big kisser.

I will become a Velcro buddy.

So if you think you can satisfy my needs and wants please submit an application for me and there is a direct link below to do that. If you have any questions you can reach my FM at stickhors@gmail.com with them.

United Yorkie Rescue helps so many littles and we count on our family, friends and Facebook buddies for contributions to help us help others that need our help (like me). If you find it in your heart and budget to help us out there is a PayPal link below for donations. You can always share my story with your friends too if you are unable to donate as the more shares I get there might be someone who can help us. Every donation helps one of our rescued littles and UYR will always step up to help as many as they can.

Initial Bio 1/9/24: Cotton is a 6 month old male Maltese that weighs 8 lbs. Cotton was brought into the Austin animal shelter last week as a stray in horrible condition. He was severely matted, covered in his own feces and urine, infested with fleas, with his left eye ruptured, protruding and bleeding. He was also dehydrated and very thin. Even though Cotton is not a Yorkie, when UYR Texas team members saw his pitiful photo on the shelter's daily intake list we contacted the shelter to see if we could help him. While at the shelter Cotton underwent surgery to have his ruptured eye removed and he was neutered at the same time, they also relieved him of most of his matted fur and all of those awful fleas. United Yorkie Rescue was there to pick him up as soon as he was approved to be released from the shelter and we took him straight to our vets office to be checked out. He is up to date on all shots and surprisingly appears to be in overall good health. Cotton is still in the process of healing from his eye surgery and we are still getting to know him, however we do know that he is a sweet little guy that is full of life and has lots of energy. He loves to play with toys and his temporary fosters believe that he would really enjoy having another younger energetic dog to play with.

Please stay tuned for updates as we get to know this sweet little guy better.


To date we've spent $510 on Cotton's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1007 in donations.

Faith
Texas
Faith Grace TX

Meet sweet little Faith Grace, a 10-12 year old, 3 pound Yorkie girl being fostered in Sherman, TX. GIVEN THIS LITTLE GIRL'S CURRENT MEDICAL NEEDS, WE WON'T BE ACCEPTING ADOPTION APPLICATIONS AT THIS TIME. Only Texas applicants will be considered.

THANK YOU TO FAITH'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Pam Roberts, Cindy McKimm

2/22/24 Update: Since Buster left, Faith now has free reign of the living area of the house. I am convinced she sees something. She makes obvious turns away from obstacles.

She wanders everywhere like a hound-dog, butt up, nose down! She is fun to watch as she explores. She found herself in the middle of the toy box. She got down, but right back up. As she sniffed around, she would step on a crinkly toy and freeze, listening. She stayed up in the toys a long time trying to figure that out. When she was tired, she found a dog bed and took a nap. I am happy to see that the thyroid medicine addition has made a marked difference in her alertness and activity level. Watch for updated pictures after her grooming and more updates.

2/l9/24 Update: Faith had her vet check-up this week and is deemed healthy enough for her dental, which will be on Monday 2-12. She will follow up two weeks after that for her spay, and as soon as she is healed from her spay, she will be available for adoption. During her vet visit, it was determined that, although she may see shades of gray, she is blind. However, her ear infections are cleared, and she is able to hear. At the time of her dental, a thyroid study will be done to see if that is the cause of her thin hair. She likes to be held up against your chest and be petted, or to lay in your lap. She does let her wishes be known if she is uncomfortable. She will continue on an eye ointment for dry eye.

Initial Bio 1/26/24: Faith is a tiny female yorkie estimated to be 12 years old weighing 3.8 lbs that was surrendered to the Austin Animal Center as a stray. When surrendered to the shelter her eyes were crusted shut, she had a terrible ear infection, hearing loss, a skin infection, hair loss, and she was full of worms and fleas. The shelter staff contacted United Yorkie Rescue to see if we would be willing to help her as they wanted to get her out of the shelter as soon as possible due to her condition. UYR picked her up and got her in to see one of our amazing vets the same day. Faith is now resting comfortably in her foster home and is being treated for all of those nasty infections. She is improving a little each day but still has a long way to go. Please stay tuned for more updates on this sweet baby girl's progress.


To date we've spent $1762.13 on Faith Grace TX's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $95 in donations.

Honey
Texas
Honey TX

Meet Honey, a totally precious 2 year old, 15 pound Yorkie girl being fostered in Azle, TX. Only Texas applicants will be considered.

Initial Bio 2/24/24: Meet sweet, sweet Honey who was given a second chance at life. Honey is a larger, 2 year old, 15 pound, healthy Yorkie mix. She was surrendered by her family to a local shelter, pregnant. She had a skirmish with another dog and a human stuck their hand in the middle of the skirmish and was bitten. Honey was placed in quarantine for 10 days, alone, sleeping on a concrete floor, at the shelter. Her pregnancy was terminated and she was spayed. UYR received a call from the shelter asking if we could take her otherwise she would be euthanized that evening. UYR agreed to take her and we are getting to know her.

Honey is very sweet and loves humans. Her foster discovered she is house and pee pad trained and crate trained. She is learning the sit command and since she is young, she is learning manners! She seems to get along with female dogs in the house but has not yet adjusted to the large male dog in the house. Her foster mom thinks with some more time and decompression, she will adjust.

She loves to chase balls in the yard. She is learning to play with the other dogs and is getting the hang of it! She is a huge cuddler and just loves to be next to her human for lots of loving. She will be a wonderful, loyal, companion for the right family. She still has a little bit of learning that needs to happen as with all young dogs but she is a gem of a girl!

If you are interested, please fill out an application on www.uyr.us or email foster mom with questions.

Jet
Texas
Jet

Meet Jet, an adorable 8 month old, 5.6 pound Yorkie boy being fostered in Georgetown, TX. Currently Jet is believed to have a liver shunt which will require surgery. He cannot be adopted until this issue has been resolved. Only Texas applicants will be considered.

THANK YOU TO JET'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Veronica Gonzales, Debra Frare, Stephanie Slack, Carol Gostomski, Cindy Mitchell-Clark, John Fullam, Cheryl Scrupski, Yvette Vangeloff, Wendy Henry, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, DeAnn Deutsch

Initial Bio 2/20/24: Hi everyone!

I want you all to meet the sweetest little puppy that United Yorkie Rescue has lovingly named Jet. We are praying that this little baby boy will be able to live up to that name! Jet is just an adorable little 5lb, supposedly 8mth old Yorkie that is really ill. He has spent the better part of the past 2 weeks in the ER and has been diagnosed with high bile acids, which means we are looking at a congenital liver shunt. This baby is also showing neurological signs making it very hard for him to walk. This can most definitely show with toxins flowing throughout his body with an open shunting vessel that is not being filtered by the liver. Before we begin our testing, we need to see Internal Med so we can be assured he will be able to undergo anesthesia to confirm the shunt. If approved for that, he will have nuclear testing which will illuminate the vessel and any other abnormalities he has acquired congenitally.

Yesterday we had lil Jet evaluated here by our vet. We have added all 3 of the most dire meds needed for this baby. With the aid of a neuro med, and the lactulose which binds the toxins to eliminate them, Jet has started to improve his walking today. This is just a blessing. This baby is just full of love and giving the sweetest kisses. We hope these meds will help, which they normally do, until we can get surgery on board so Jet can be the puppy that he deserves to be! We have our consultation next week with Internal Med then we will move quickly for the testing and surgery.

Meantime, we need your help. Yorkies are very well known for expensive health issues and, yes, this one is on the top of the list. Please help us help Jet with this immense expense. His testing will run UYR about 1.5K and the surgery will run upwards of $3 to $5K. We are blessed to have such an amazing base of friends and family that have helped us so many times, so we are looking to you once again. He is just absolutely an amazing little puppy that deserves to have his full life! Donations can be made using the link below this bio, or at www.uyr.us by clicking the yellow button on the home page. If you are not able to help at this time, please share his little story. We thank you and bless you all!


To date we've spent $930.36 on Jet's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $945 in donations.

Rico

Meet Rico, a handsome 3 year old 9 lb Yorkie boy being fostered in Rhome, TX. Only Texas applicants will be considered.

THANK YOU TO RICO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sarhai Serrano

Update 11/29/23: My name is Rico and Im a sweet baby Yorkie with a love for treats and designer accessories. Follow me for daily fashion inspiration and cuteness overload! When Im not trying on clothes, jewelry or being adored, I take my job of loving my foster family very seriously. I like to be on the go and hang out wherever my foster mom goes! I love to go for walks, hiking, swimming, chasing ducks or to brunch and have my very own puppy purse to chill in.

My ideal home would be an active home under 60 with no kids under 12 or kitties, that can promise me the next 10+ years of love. Im only 2 years old and in perfect health and Im still very much a puppy! However, my original owner passed away so having a home love me for the rest of my life is very important to me. After my original owner passed away I went to live with three young kids and I was traumatized so I do not like young children. I appreciate when older kiddos are respectful of my space and I will be respectful of them. My foster mom says the more active I am the less trouble I get into hehe. Im super, super smart and have already learned sit, lay down and Im an expert on my leash especially for treats!

Im the King of the castle in my foster home, and because in my previous life I had to protect what was mine from other dogs and kids, sometimes I fiercely guard random objects, so my new home would have to continue to work on that with me. Other than that Im a loveee bug, a Velcro pup and a silly, silly spoiled rotten little boy! People say you cant buy love, but you CAN adopt me I cant wait to find my furever home, I have so much love to give!!! I was born in 2017, weigh 8 pounds and am currently located in a foster home.

Initial Bio 10/27/23: My name is Rico. I am 3 years old and am a lovable 9 lbs. I am going to share my story and when I am done I hope you will fall in love with me. I am with an amazing foster family who is giving me so much love but I know my furever family is waiting for me. I spent my first 3 years with a warm sweet lady that could no longer care for me so her family was kind enough to bring me to their home for a while where we all found that the time had come to find my future life and family. I went from 1 person to 3 children, an apartment, missed having a yard, and shared love with another baby dog.

I follow foster mom everywhere, constantly trying to be in her lap, and hoping she will take me along with the family to brunch, go for walks and car rides. I have learned to sit, lay down and they have me in training to roll over (of course its for the treats) but I am berry berry smart.

Im sure you can tell that I love designer clothes so you can get new sweaters, T-shirts or whatever you think will keep me handsome. I love my foster dad and 9 year old brother and take my job of being a love bug very seriously. I am waiting for my first vet visit so I can get caught up on my vaccines and get neutered.

I have so much love to giveIf you think I would be a perfect boy for your family please complete an application below.

12/27/3 Initial Bio: Muttilda, aka Tilly, recently came into the care of UYR with her fur-brother Wolfgang, aka Wolfie under very sad circumstances. Tilly and Wolfie had a wonderful owner that loved and cared for them for over ten years. Unfortunately, their owner became unable to take care of her beloved fur-babies due to health issues. Family members contacted UYR for help with finding Tilly and Wolfie a new loving forever home. Tilly and Wolfie are a bonded pair that have been together for the past ten years and therefore will need to remain together.

Tilly is spayed and is up to date on all of her shots. However, she is in dire need of a dental cleaning and tooth extraction. She has a history of a having a heart murmur and when x-rayed by UYRs vet she had a slightly enlarged heart. After careful evaluation and consideration UYRs vet is confident that Tilly is healthy enough for dental surgery which will greatly improve her quality of life as her mouth is painfully infected. Tilly was given an antibiotic shot to help with the mouth infection and is scheduled for the much-needed dental cleaning.

Tillys foster parents say that she has been a perfect house guest so far, she is housetrained, well mannered, sweet, and just a joy to have around. She wants to be next to you at all times, loves to be pet, loves belly rubs, and may cry just a little if you stop petting her too soon. Tilly also loves to go on walks with her brother Wolfie.

So, if you happen to be looking for two fun loving, easy going, laid back, super sweet dogs that love everyone they meet, look no further than Wolfie and Tilly.

If you would like more information about Muttilda and Wolfgang please contact their fosters at UYRyorkielovetx@yahoo.com

Tucker
Texas
Tucker TX

Meet Tucker, an adorable, shy 8 month old, 6 pound Yorkie boy being fostered in McKinney, TX. Only Texas applicants will be considered.

2/13/24 Initial Bio: Hi eberybody, I am Tucker. I just moved to my foster family's home in McKinney a couple of hours ago. This is what Foster Mom says about me.

Tuckers Mom reached out to United Yorkie Rescue. She told us that her puppy that she has had for 2 and a half months is getting beat up by the 2 year old Yorkie that lived there. Tucker's Mom had tried everything to get these 2 guys to get along but with much heartache she decided that it would be best for Tucker to find a new home and reached out to us to see if we could help. Naturally our answer was a resounding YES.

Tucker is 8 months old and weighs in at a whopping 6 pounds. He most likely wont get any bigger. He is just the cutest little pup. His former Mom has kept him UTD with all his shots and got him microchipped. He just needs to get neutered and he will be good to go. Tucker is so adorable but so so shy and timid right now. He is exploring his new home. We dont know if he is potty trained yet. He is just watching the resident and foster dogs right now and is so unsure of himself and where he is.

So that is what we know of Tucker after 6 hours of being here. We will know so much more after a few weeks and will update his bio. In the meantime you can reach out to Foster Mom with your questions at stickhors@gmail.com. There is also a link for his UYR application at the end of his bio. The adoption application is the first step we take. He is a cutie so get your application in soon.

Id also like to mention that UYR depends on our family, friends and social media friends for much needed donations. Your donations enable us to help so many other deserving babies get a second chance at life. We have taken on quite a few littles recently that needed so much veterinary care as they have not been cared for for years. So if you are able to donate that would be pawsome. If you can not help us at this time may I ask you to please share our story with others who might be able to donate. Tucker is one of the lucky ones but you can read the stories about Bailey Grace, Faith Grace and Barney who are still overcoming medical obstacles.

We appreciate each and everyone of you for your continued support, your donations, for sharing our stories and for always sending us your warm fuzzies.

Hello and Happy New Year UYR Friends and Family. It is our pleasure to introduce you to Wolfgang aka Wolfie. Wolfie is a male yorkie that is estimated to be 12 years young and weighs 14.5 lbs.

Unfortunately, their owner became unable to take care of her beloved fur-babies due to health issues. Family members contacted UYR for help with finding Wolfie and Tilly a new loving forever home.

Wolfie is neutered and up to date on all shots and is scheduled for a dental cleaning. He will also have a bump removed from his right shoulder during the dental surgery.

Wolfie has been a perfect house guest at his foster home so far, he is potty trained, very calm, very sweet, and just an overall good boy. He likes to play with toys and loves to go for walks. He also enjoys exploring the backyard and laying in the sun when the weather is just right.

Ollie
Wisconsin
Ollie WI

Meet Ollie, a handsome 10 month old, 6lb Yorkie being fostered in Madison, WI. Only applicants within a 75 mile radius of foster home will be considered.

THANK YOU TO OLLIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Carol Gostomski, Donna Hayes, Joseph Schufman in memory of Sydney, a Yorkshire lovingly cared for by Mark and Jill Schufman, Boulder, CO

Update 2/27/24: Ollie had a very good home visit however issues were identified that have postponed his transfer. His foster parents need to continue working on training to deal with reactive issues and coping mechanisms to assist in his separation anxiety before he will make the transfer to his forever home.

Update 11/25/23: Ollie has settled into his foster home quite well and is getting along with the other dogs in the house. He is still a puppy and does act as such!! Ollies initial vet visit was terrific! The doctor gave him a complete checkup: heart & lungs, teeth, joints, eyes & ears and some blood work. She said he is a good size for his age and doing well. He does have a few baby teeth that need to come out along with getting his neuter, both of these scheduled for December. Once Ollie recovers from these procedures his foster mom will start considering when he will be ready for adoption.

Please consider donating to help with the costs of Ollies upcoming vet visits.

Initial Bio 11/13/23: Ollie came to the rescue as an owner surrender due to financial issues. He had to be shaved due to severe mats in his hair but he handled the grooming like a champ and is so happy now. He is getting along well with his foster brother and sister but we need to continue monitoring his socialization with other dogs. He came from a home with children and got along with them as well. He has had a couple of accidents in the house but for the most part is potty-trained. Ollie loves to go for walks but pulls hard on the leash. He does rush the door when he sees the leash so he needs to be in a safe area that he cant get outside as he could be a runner. Ollie has not been neutered so adoption will not happen until this is taken care of.

Ollie has never been to the vet and has his first visit in a couple of days. Until we know that all is well WE WILL NOT BE ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR ADOPTION.
