Brady

Say hello to Brady. This sweet 4 year old Yorkie boy has diabetes, but he is just perfect. He is 10 pounds. Sweet Brady is being fostered near Birmingham, AL.

Updated Bio. 05/18/18. Brady had his much needed dental Wednesday. Thank goodness he did not loose any teeth!! He has such a zest for life and never meets a stranger. He is ready for his forever home. If you would like a cuddle bug that loves to play fetch, then Brady is your man! Just follow the link to complete an application for adoption if you are interested.

UPDATED BIO 05/03/2018: Brady has been in his foster home for several weeks now and Foster Mom notes that he is a very confident but laid-back little fella. He loves his people, whether he is sitting beside you, at your feet, or sleeping in your bed or his bed, he totally loves to being with his humans. He hasn’t met a stranger yet that he didn’t like, whether human or canine (not sure yet about cats).

Brady has diabetes, which is well-managed with Insulin injections 2x a day; he is on a special diet of Royal Canin Glycobalance food. He is just a super sweetheart of a dog who is both pee-pee pad and leash-trained. He also knows a few commands and is a young, smart boy, and he is easily trained to new commands. Read more here about Diabetes in Dogs: https://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/diabetes-in-dogs/

Brady also LOVES to play fetch - doesn’t matter what type of ball – small, medium or large, he loves them all. He tries his best to get out of the fence-in yard when the kids are playing football or basketball so he can play with them! If you are looking for a cute, smart and loving doggie companion, Brady is your man!

Initial Bio. 04/15/18. Today is Brady's first day with his foster family, but he has settled in nicely with his 4 fur siblings. He has already made it known that he is a people person and loves to cuddle and be held. Although he has diabetes, it is being controlled with proper diet and insulin twice a day. He ate his special diet along side the other 4 when they ate without any problem! Stay tuned for more information as we learn more about adorable Brady.


To date we've spent $582.93 on Brady's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Chikki is ready for her Forever Home

Beautiful Chikki
Arkansas
Chikki

Chiquita Bella is an 8 month old, 4 pound chihuahua puppy being fostered in Bryant, AR.

THANK YOU TO CHIKKI'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Elisa Boyd, Karry Rogers, Irene and Peter Havas, Joe Maxwell

Update 4/28/18

Chikki came to UYR with a broken front leg. She kept us worried and for a time we feared she might lose her leg but we have WONDERFUL NEWS to share about our little “honorary Yorkie.” After a few weeks in her purple cast, Chikki returned to the Dogtor for X-rays and she is now cast-free and using all 4 legs like a champ! By all appearances Chikki now has normal use of her leg, no pain and she is in full playful puppy mode. Chikki’s Vet says to she still needs to limit any “unnecessary RUFFNESS” for a couple of more weeks just to be sure but she has been spayed and is nearly ready to find her FUREVER home. Chikki is literally one of the sweetest, most loving pups you will ever meet. Her perfect home would be one with another tiny pup comparable to her size

to be her best pal. Chikki is a tiny girl so no young children in the home please for her safety. She is a puppy and really wants to play. She is engaging in play in her foster home with Yorkies who are her size and is having a ball and she loves to be one of the gang. She will get her spay stitches removed on April 30th, and at that time, she is available for adoption to the right home. When she is not playing, foster mom's lap is the place she wants to be. She loves to nap snuggled under her blankey and give out lots of Chikki kisses. If you think you are Chikki’s PAWFECT person please apply to adopt her today.

Update 4/7/18

Chikki is doing AMAZINGLY WELL in her foster home. And there is even better news to share on this sweet girl. Chikki's Vet feels that her broken leg is likely salvageable! She is not in pain and she let the Vet manipulate the leg and she even walked on it for him. While her leg does bend unusually and probably will never "look" perfectly normal, there is a good chance it will heal. Chikki now has a stylish purple splint to complement her perfectly shaped heart face. She is on activity restriction and spending lots of time in foster Mom's lap giving and receiving kisses. After two months in her splint the Vet will repeat X-rays and see where we are. She will have her spay procedure April 19th. Please help us cover the ongoing cost of Chikki's care by clicking the PayPal button below and Thank You!

Initial Bio 3/23/18: You might be thinking....this does not look like a Yorkie and you would be right! This is Chiquita Bella or “Chikki” as her foster mom has nicknamed her. Local animal control called UYR to see if they might have room to help this young girl who is only 8 months old. Her leg was broken in January and her former family can not afford to fix it properly and they are moving back to Central America so Chikki needed someone to step up and help her very fast. Sadly, local shelters simply do not have the financial resources to fix broken legs so we decided to make Chikki an “honorary Yorkie” and bring her into UYR. She will see the Vet soon to see how we can best help her. Sweet Chikki just arrived in her foster home today and we will have an update on her soon so stay tuned!


To date we've spent $486.29 on Chikki's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $130.00 in donations.

Brandy
California
Brandy

Brandy is a beautiful 4-year-old, 7 pound, little Yorkie girl being fostered in Southern California. Only candidates living in California will be considered for adoption.

THANK YOU TO BRANDY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Rodney and Robin Slagle

03/20/18. Update Bio. Available for Adoption with Special Conditions (Below) – Southern California Residents ONLY.

Brandy came to UYR as an owner surrender that suddenly became intolerant and aggressive toward the other dog in her household after four years of peaceful coexistence. In addition, she became overly possessive of her owner and began nipping at others that came into her vicinity. Brandy has been medically evaluated and is in perfect health. In addition, she has been seen and evaluated by a reputable trainer and was placed on Prozac to help control her aggression, but the medication had no positive impact on the situation. Concerned for the safety of both of their dogs, Brandy’s owners found themselves with no other option than to seek the assistance of UYR.

Brandy has been a member of our family for the past six weeks. She has been weened completely off of medication, has been placed on a healthy, raw, grain free diet. Ironically, Brandy was immediately accepted into my little pack of three the day she arrived. We have had no major incidences of aggression between Brandy and any of our 3 Yorkies (with some minor pack corrections that are teaching her manners, none that have involved overly physical contact). In fact, they seem to like her, and regularly attempt to seek her out to play. Although Brandy tolerates the pack, she isn’t eager to engage with them just yet. She prefers the one-on-one attention of humans and has fallen in love with both my husband and myself. She is a sweet little lap dog that likes nothing more than cuddling, wrapped in a blanket and having her neck, ears and belly rubbed. She loves being brushed too and will sit on the floor next to my feet to wait for her turn. So adorable.

As her foster mom, and a person with several years of experience living and working with “Quirky Yorkies.” I think Brandy is a Fantastic little one and very typical of many of the more “Colorful” Yorkies. Brandy is a very loving, intelligent and complex little one that needs to be challenged and loves learning. She is super fun, and very spunky and so incredibly ADORABLE! She has a very high level of intensity in everything she does and absolutely needs lots and lots of exercise, attention and a new Mom & Dad that can respect and appreciate her for who she is. One of the things I love about Brandy is her strong desire to communicate her needs, albeit the way she has gone about it in the past has been understandably misinterpreted. For example, if she’s enjoying getting her ears scratched and you suddenly stop, she will grab your hand with her mouth gently because she wants more. I’ve been working with her to kiss rather than grab my hand and she is catching on quickly. If you rough her up or hold her too tightly she gets upset and will grab your hand as if to say, “Don’t do that to me!” If you grab her leash and walk to the door, she’ll nip your toes because she can’t wait to go outside. She’s learning how to kiss instead. Like most Yorkies – Brandy LOVES going for long mountain walks …. 1-mile twice per day. She also has a habit of growling in a fairly intimidating way if anyone or the dogs go near her when she’s in her bed or has a toy. Of course, this is normal, but in Brandy’s case it was overly intense. She’s doing this less and less as she begins to feel safer and becomes more accustomed to our family and the rules of our pack which include respecting others and their space.

Brandy also has a tendency to get overly excited which is usually the precursor to negative behavior. She is learning how to channel her excess energy into chewing bones, playing fetch, and tug-of-war. She is also learning how to have better manners with other dogs. Each evening I watch as my pack engages her or ignores her depending on how she is acting, and which cues she’s sending out. She is very smart and seems to be enjoying learning the ways and rules of the pack with little intervention from me – she seems to feel accomplished and I’m very proud of her.

Brandy also has rather strong obsessive/compulsive tendencies and (like many Yorkies) wants whatever another dog has. In Brandy’s case, she doesn’t want to play with another dog, she wants to steal the toy and hide it. She’s definitely a major hoarder. In the beginning she would sit and whine for a long, long, long time if she wanted something. Since she has learned that this just isn’t the way to get what she wants, and she rarely does this now. Brandy also knows when she needs quiet time and will sometimes retreat to her bed just to relax. To her credit, Brandy is perfectly housetrained and is terrific at letting us know when she has to go out to her little patch of grass on the deck.

In the beginning Brandy was aloof and didn’t really seem to like or trust people very much. She seemed uncertain of human interaction and wasn’t a big fan of being held or carried around and would growl. We got the sense she really just wanted to be left alone, like she was just plain fed-up humans, which we could totally understand based on the chaos this entire family had endured during their final months together. We believe that Brandy was very confused and disoriented because she just couldn’t figure things out, or what people wanted from her. She just wanted to go to her bed or retreat and “check-out.” The unpredictability of life also resulted in her lack of confidence, fear, and caused her to growl and/or lash out.

Brandy is a UNIQUE Yorkie that has definite streaks of unpredictability which (we believe) may stem from a combination of her possible in-breeding, past life experiences and genuine nature. It has taken time, good judgement, love, limits, and the ability to properly evaluate her state of mind at any given time and lots and lots and lots of positive reinforcement to develop a good, strong, loving relationship with Brandy. I’m confident that it will take her new owner(s) a good deal of BREED SPECIFIC KNOWLEDGE, time, effort, patience, love, kindness and respect and work to develop a loving relationship with Brandy.

Brandy is a Special UYR Yorkie with Unique Needs.

Brandy’s Specific Requirements – Please Read Carefully – In addition to UYR’s high-standards for potential adopters, the following additional conditions are specific to Brandy.

You must have demonstrated experience with the Yorkie Breed, and an understanding, experience and a passion for intensified breed characteristics and knowledge of how to properly correct with positive reinforcement and loving limits.

Brandy will not be adopted into a household with children or regularly visiting grandchildren under 16 years of age. A retired, yet active couple or single person that is home most of the time is highly preferable.

You must commit to having a “one-Yorkie” home FurEver. If you plan to have a mult-pet household at some future date, or if you currently have another pet, please do not apply to adopt Brandy. UYR will reserve the right to retrieve her should this commitment be broken.

Applicants for Brandy must live in Orange or San Diego Counties Only.

We’d like Brandy to be adopted by a Yorkie-Breed Enthusiast. We’d love to find her new FurParents that will take her to obedience, training and agility classes to establish and solidify a strong, life-long bond with Brandy.

Initial Bio 2/12/18: Hello – My name is Brandy! I’m 4.5 Years Old and 7lbs of Pure Moxie! I’m a Little California Beauty Queen, and I know it!! I love cuddling in my bed, going for long mountain walks and playing with squeak toys! I just arrived on Saturday 2/10 and I’m just getting to know my Foster Family.

Please check back for updates as my Foster Family gets to know me better!

Braxton
California
Braxton

Braxton is a cute 4.5-years-old, 9 pound Yorkie being fostered in northern CA. Braxton must be an only dog in the household.

THANK YOU TO MAXTON'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Trula Montgomery

Update Bio. 05/19/18. Braxton is a very cute little 9 lb Yorkie, 4 1/2 year old. He answers to the name of Chewie, his nickname. He is a little overweight, but I am sure with increased activity, and close monitoring of his food intake, this will be easily corrected. He must be an only dog, as he will randomly strike out at some dogs, but is friends with many other dogs. It was found from his previous owners that they had also observed this behavior. It is unfortunate that training was not done at a younger age, to address this issue. It could have started from frustration in his previous living condition, which was not ideal.

Chewie loves to take walks with his person, and play in his back yard, or sit with his owner. He was not potty trained when he arrived, but we have been working on this. He is crate trained. He is OK with cats. I do not know how he is with young children, but he grew up with teenagers. He is up to date on all required vetting. He is a very healthy dog.


To date we've spent $143.53 on Braxton's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $20.00 in donations.

Georgie and his BFF Sport
California
Georgie (and Sport)

Georgie is a 1.5 year of. 4.5 pound Malti-Poo. He is one half of a bonded pair and comes to UYR with his furry best friend Sport, a 2 year old, 8 pound Morkie. Both pups are being fostered in Fremont, CA and must be adopted together.

THANK YOU TO GEORGIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Carol Nelson, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Carol Nelson

Update Bio. 04/06/2018. Poor little Georgi! Such a sweet boy who loves to play, play, and play more. Foster Mom loves to watch him but was distraught when she noticed he held his right rear leg up when running. An appointment at the vet verified the suspicion, he has a severe luxating patella issue, and needs surgery. He also has an issue with the left rear leg, but not severe. We have scheduled his surgery, which will be in 2 weeks. He also needs a dental, which hopefully can be done at the same time. His playing will have to be restricted for at least 8 weeks, if not more. Not an easy thing to do, because this boy loves to play.

All this will be very expensive. But we want a bright, happy, healthy future for this adorable little boy. If you could help us pay for Georgi’s surgery, it would be greatly appreciated. We also would love your prayers and positive thoughts that all goes well for him through his surgery and recovery.

Initial Bio 3/24/18: This duo of young, adorable best pals have had a rough year so far. First, their owner was a victim of the fires that plagued the San Diego area. Displaced from their home, they were given to a friend for safe keeping until the owner could recover. That proved more challenging than anticipated and the original owner found that they were unable to come for them. The friend was given ownership with the intent of finding them a good home but is a widow with limited resources who after much heart ache reluctantly decided that UYR could give this precious pair the best start possible to a PAWFECT new life. These two pups are healthy, sweet as can be and are going to make some lucky adopter very happy! Stay tuned for updates as they have just reached their foster home.

Maxton is a handsome 4 year old, 7 pound Yorkie boy being fostered in northern CA.

THANK YOU TO MAXTON'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Trula Montgomery

Update Bio: 05/19/18 Maxton is an adorable 7 lb. 4 1/2 year old Yorkie. Because of his previous living condition, he craves attention. He is not entirely house trained, we have been working on it. He is crate trained, but if he sees you sitting on the couch, he sees no reason why he should be in his crate, he wants to be in your lap. Totally a lap baby. His favorite activities are being with his person.

He wants his own person to love so badly. He will follow me everywhere in the house. Unfortunately, he has to compete for my attention with my own dogs. Maxton gets along with other dogs, and he is OK with cats. I do not know how he would be with young children, but he grew up with teenagers. He loves to play ball in his backyard with his owner. He is up to date on all required vetting. He really does not pay much attention to other dogs, his focus is always on his person. he is a very healthy dog.

Maxwell
California
Maxwell

Maxwell is a 10 year old, 5 pound Yorkie boy residing in Canyon Country, CA.

THANK YOU TO MAXWELL'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Karry Rogers, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Brigitte Saylor, Sandra Wendt, Brigitte Saylor, Tegwyn Neilson, Sandra Wendt, Kelly Marini, Elizabeth Giannone, Denise Garrett, Jane St. John, Judy and James Hufford, Debra Roby, Linda and David Rothrock, Joan Shelly, Gail Clemons, Kristin Vole, Shanon Fair, Treena Morgan, Paul Sherman, Mahmoud Loghman-Adham, Nancy Smith, Mary Cronin, Angela Heath, Mark Reed, Christine Flaherty, Lee Filer, Pascaline Golie, Marcia Lee

Update Bio. 04/10/18. Maxwell is a very cute 11 and 1/2 year old Yorkie boy and weighs 5 and 1/2 pounds. We think that he comes from abuse situation that resulted in pelvic fractures. He is in his foster home for almost 2 years now. His fractures healed but he comes with a number of behavioral issues.

Please keep this in mind if you are interested in adopting Maxwell. He tries to bite strangers until he gets to know and trust them. Grooming him is quite a challenge and should be done by his forever person. He doesn’t mind his bath or the blow dryer but he will put up a fight when someone touches his front paws. I groom him mostly myself but need my groomers help when clipping his nails or trimming the hair between his paw pads. I usually hold him in a way that makes it impossible for him to nip my groomer.

He stays in my master bedroom when I am at work and uses the pee pads when I am not home. He does not bark when home alone but he knows his feeding times and will make sure to let you know that it is time to eat. He will not stop whining and heavy breathing (panting) sounds in combination with a huge production of saliva dripping from his mouth until he gets what he wants.

He loves loud, squeaky toys and toys with voice boxes that will talk to him. His favorite game is tug of war. He learned sit and down on command and loves his dental chew at night after brushing his teeth.

Maxwell is not available for adoption out of State due to his numerous issues.

Update Bio: 02/11/18. Maxwell is so cute and full of personality. He learned to trust, cuddle and overcome his anxiety. He feels safe in his foster home and loves to cuddle and give kisses. He still tries to nip strangers until he gets to know and trust them. He may never overcome this.

He loves to play with his toys. He is potty trained and uses pee pads when I am at work. He is not a barker and gets very excited when I come home from work. If you are interested in this sweet little man, just follow the link below to complete the application.

Update Bio. 11/26/17. Not much news on little Maxwell. He is still waiting for his forever home. He is a lot calmer than he used to be but still has his moments. He can drive you crazy an hour before feeding time. He loves to lay in your lap and play with his toys. He does, at times, have problems getting up the doggie stairs to the couch but he will usually figure it out. It is so funny because sometimes he just turns around and walks up backwards. Wish I could capture that on video.

He is growing a beautiful full coat.

Update Bio. 07/24/17. Maxwell has been in his foster home for over a year now, and it is getting difficult to do the monthly updates. He had his annual senior screen a few weeks ago and did excellent. He is a very healthy little boy. He needs his daily physical exercises and walks uphill to keep the muscles in his hind legs strong.

He is a happy, little guy who enjoys life and he loves, loves, loves toys. Squeaking toys and toys with voice boxes are his favorite one. His favorite game is tug of war.

He needs a patient person and a quiet home with very little people traffic and no children under the age of 12.Maxwell would be an excellent companion. To complete an application for adoption, just follow the link below.

Update Bio. 06/22/17. I can't believe that Maxwell has not found his forever home, yet. He has been in his foster home for an entire year, his pelvic fractures healed a long time ago, and he just had his annual senior screen. He is a perfectly healthy 10 and 1/2 year old Yorkie boy with puppy energy who loves to play tug of war, go for walks, and loves squeaker toys. Yes, he has problems with anxiety and we are trying the 3rd medication which doesn't seem to work just as the others we tried before. He would do best in a quiet home with very little people traffic, no other dogs, and a daily routine with minimal changes.

He should be walked uphill daily for 5 minutes and his exercises need to be done daily. They are very simple to do and it takes only 5 minutes twice a day.

I am sure the right person for Maxwell is out there and it is just a matter of time for this special person to find him.


To date we've spent $3271.31 on Maxwell's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $3099.70 in donations.

Sweet Puppy Bailey

Bailey and her sisters Cali and Zoey
Florida
Bailey

Puppy Bailey was born in the early morning hours on 04/21/2018 to momma Lydia. Bailey currently weighs only 1 lb 5 oz.

UPDATED BIO 05/07/2018: Sweet Lydia was one of 26 dogs pulled recently by a sister rescue group from a horrendous hoarding/backyard breeding situation. She is one of the 10 dogs that United Yorkie Rescue brought into our group. Lydia gave birth to 3 healthy puppies only a few days after arriving in her UYR foster home.

Bailey is now the largest of the 3 female puppies and she opened her eyes at 14 days old. She and her sisters are all doing well, and Mom Lydia is a wonderful mom. Stay tuned …… and please read the SPECIAL EXCEPTIONS posted below:

PLEASE NOTE THESE SPECIAL EXCEPTIONS!

- UYR WILL NOT BE TAKING ANY ADOPTION APPLICATIONS FOR BAILEY OR HER SISTERS CALI AND ZOEY AT THIS TIME. PLEASE DO NOT APPLY until further notice.

Due to the time involved in ensuring that both Lydia and her 3 puppies are thriving, any applications submitted for them until further notice will be archived and not considered.

- Bailey is expected to be a small puppy and adult dog as both her mom and the breeding males in the home were very small. Due to this, Bailey cannot be adopted into a home with children under the age of 14 years old. No exceptions will be made.

INITIAL BIO 04/23/2018: A very special birth announcement came in the early morning hours on 04/21/2018. Foster Lydia gave birth to three healthy baby girls. They are all nursing well, with full little bellies, and Mom Lydia is a wonderful mom. Stay tuned........

Ommmmmmmm.....

I love toys, too. This one is MINE.
Florida
Baloo

Baloo is an adorable 11 year old, 13 pound yorkie boy. Baloo wants to be your one and only animal. He is being fostered in Clearwater, FL.

THANK YOU TO BALOO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Tatiana Ceballos, Scott Hall, Trula Montgomery

Update Bio. 04/04/18. Baloo still loves his toys. Lots of them. He loves to be out in the sun, but needs a fenced backyard. He loves to be with his human. Baloo can sit on command and give high fives. He would love a home with someone who is home most of the time. I will be perfectly happy hanging out with you most of the day, playing with my toys, and checking out the yard. If this sounds like you, follow the link below to complete an application for adoption. I promise you will not be sorry!

UPDATED BIO 02/28/2018: Hello Everyone - I am Baloo! I am a mature Yorkie gentleman. I love the outdoors and especially love being with my humans. If you are a drama-free person, then I am your drama-free dog. I require very little – here’s the very few things I need in a forever home:

- a fenced backyard for me to run free. Oh, and to meditate – yup, I love to meditate in the outdoors. Don’t you? I need a home, no apartment or condo dwellers, please.

- a forever home free of other animals. I want to be your one and only so that I can give you lots (and I do mean lots!) of attention and love.

- no young children under 14 years old. Since I’m mature, I prefer my humans to be mature, too.

- A home with someone who just wants a loyal companion. That’s me! And that’s what I want in my human.

- Because I tend to be a strong-willed character of sorts, it would be best for me to go into a home with doggie experience, and especially experience with the Yorkshire Terrier breed.

- Toys. Lots of them. I love to play with my toys while I sit by my owner(s).

Once you adopt me, I will adopt you as my human(s) and will be forever faithful and loyal to you. I have lots of love to give to my special persons. Will you be that perfect owner for me? I have been obedience-trained and can sit on command, and I give high 5's, too. Pretty cool, huh? And …..after you learn my language, I can even talk! To know me is to absolutely love me. And you will. I promise.

UPDATED BIO 01/28/2018: Hello Everyone - I am Baloo! I am a mature Yorkie gentleman. I love the outdoors and especially love being with my humans. If you are a drama-free person, then I am your drama-free dog. I require very little – here’s the very few things I need in a forever home:

- a forever home free of other animals. I want to be your one and only so that I can give you lots (and I do mean lots!) of attention and love.

- no young children under 14 years old. Since I’m mature, I prefer my humans to be mature, too.

- A home with someone who just wants a loyal companion. That’s me! And that’s what I want in my human.

- Because I tend to be a strong-willed character of sorts, it would be best for me to go into a home with doggie experience, and especially experience with the Yorkshire Terrier breed.

- Toys. Lots of them. I love to play with my toys while I sit by my owner(s).

Once you adopt me, I will adopt you as my human(s) and will be forever faithful and loyal to you. I have lots of love to give to my special persons. Will you be that perfect owner for me? I have been obedience-trained and can sit on command, and I give high 5's, too. Pretty cool, huh? And …..after you learn my language, I can even talk! To know me is to absolutely love me. And you will. I promise.

UPDATED BIO 12/11/2017: Avoid the Christmas rush and get yourself the best gift ever. I am Baloo - a very sweet and adorable 11 year old yorkie. PLEASE NOTE!!!! I NEED AN ENCLOSED BACKYARD AND I ALSO NEED TO BE THE ONLY DOG IN THE HOME. I also do not do well with children or cats.

Like a lot of humans, I have lived a difficult life and because of my age, and as a result of my past life’s difficulties, I prefer to live a quiet mellow life now. I love to be petted and have my tummy rubbed and head scratched. I do enjoy sleeping in the bed and ….. BONUS! - I am also house-trained. My advanced training means I will heel, sit, and sometimes stay. I love to give high fives for treats.

I would consider myself a low-maintenance kind of fellow; however, it does take me a little time to get acclimated to my new surroundings. My ideal forever home would be with an older retired person or couple where I will be the center of attention – and the center of their world. Yup, I’d really like that. I prefer to spend most of my time outdoors in my own private dog park that you humans would call an ENCLOSED BACK YARD. Please - no apartment or condo dwellers. 

Because I am a strong-willed character of sorts, it would be best for me to go into a home with someone with doggie experience, and especially experience with the Yorkshire Terrier breed. Come on folks! Spoil yourself a little bit and adopt the gift that keeps on giving – ME! We can chill and relax together and watch the world go by – that’s a perfect day for me. Oh, and remember those belly rubs and head scratches.

Updated bio 8-29-17 Hello, my name is Baloo. I am 11 years old and weigh a lucky 13 pounds. Right now I am living in Clearwater, FL in my foster home. Here's what you should know about me. I generally like to keep to myself and mind my own business. I do enjoy time with my owner, but other than that I am content with my toys. I am in very good health. I have been through advanced obedience training. I have no dental issues which is rare for my age, but I have been very well taken care-of in my previous home. And guess what? I am house-trained and a really good eater too.

My perfect home would be a home with ABSOLUTELY no other pets or children. I like to have all the attention and love. I like a quiet environment and am looking for a stay-at-home person who likes the same. I do have a strong character, so I need an owner who is familiar with dogs like me, especially one with a snarky attitude that a Yorkie can sometimes have; I will take over the house if you let me, so I kinda need owners with a strong character, too, lol! My owners may have to rein me in a little and show me my boundaries from time-to-time - maybe. I really need a fenced/enclosed backyard to play in. I am not a dog park or neighborhood kind of dog. Please don't be scared. I am friendly, loving, loyal and obedient, and really pretty much maintenance-free except for the required belly rub now and then. I look forward to meeting my new parent or parents. I will give you lots of kisses and love. Don't pass me by if you think you would like a special dog like me.

UPDATED BIO 07/07/2017: Here's a note from Baloo:

Hello future Parents

Please allow me to introduce myself. I am Baloo and I am a mature gentleman at 11 years old. Because I have been taken such good care of at my most recent vet visit, I was found to be in excellent health and cleared to go to my forever home.

My ideal home would be a home much like myself - older and retired. Why? Because we can sit around and watch the world go by. I'm not a fan of a lot of excitement and I don't bark much. I really just love to walk around the back yard (preferably fenced). I love toys. I am almost like a puppy in that regard and I bring them to bed with me.

So now you know about me, and that I'm a laid-back gentleman. Oh! Now this is impressive. I have been to Obedience School and I can do a few tricks. Pretty cool, huh? There's something else you need to know. I want to be your one and only animal. That way, you can devote all of your attention to me - that's the way I like it!

Please ask my Foster Parents any questions if you are interested in adopting and loving me.

INITIAL 06-25-17: Baloo just arrived at this foster home today. He was so glad to be there. It seems there was this young dog in his former home that was not being very nice to Baloo. He wanted Baloo to play with him all the time and although Baloo is a young 11 year old fellow, he no longer has the energy of a puppy and he was just so unhappy. Baloo's mom knew Baloo needed a quiet, calm home where he would be the only dog.

Baloo did great in the long car ride to his foster home. He is house-trained, walks nicely on a leash, and is a good eater. Baloo is a healthy dog and has many wonderful years left. He needs a home with no other dogs and no kids. He would love a stay-at-home mom and/or dad if that is possible.

Baloo is settling into his foster home and already his foster mom and dad said he is one great dog and is loving the attention he is getting from them. Much more to come on this cutie as his foster parents get to know him.


To date we've spent $375.97 on Baloo's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $238.80 in donations.

Hello, it is me - Butler

I am such a cute little guy
Florida
Butler

Say hello to Butler. This adorable little Yorkie is only 4.6 years old. He weighs 8.2 pounds. Butler is being fostered in Odessa, FL.

INITIAL BIO 05/17/2018: Butler is a very sweet little guy. Unfortunately, his owner was not able to give Butler the care and time he needed. He was being left alone for hours and hours at a time. Poor little fella – that is certainly not the life for a sweet and very active puppy like him. Butler is a very playful and energetic fellow, and being left alone was just so hard for him. He needed time to play, time and run, and to just have fun like a young dog should have.

Although he has only been in his foster home for a few days, his foster parents already know he is full of energy and fun. He seems to like everyone he has met, people and dogs. Butler will soon be having his neuter and a dental and then should be ready to be adopted. His foster parents will be working with him on his house-training, since it appears no one really spent the time with him to teach him where it is and is not appropriate to do his business.

Butler rode in the car well, but foster mom could tell he wasn’t accustomed to car rides. He was a bit fidgety and anxious, but that is to be expected. Because of all the time Butler spent alone, his foster mom feels that he truly needs to go into a forever home where there is someone home with him most of the day. There is still much more to know about Butler. Come back soon as we all get to know this sweet boy a bit better.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Butler’s small size, he cannot go into a home with children under the age of 14 years old.


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

Life is good.

I am such a handsome fella
Florida
Chewy

Chewy is an 8 year old 7.8 pound little male Yorkie. Sweet Chewy is being fostered in Zyphyrhills, FL.

THANK YOU TO CHEWY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Amy Miller

UPDATED BIO 04/09/2018: Chewy is adjusting well in his foster home and enjoys spending time with his foster parents. He is a real sweetheart and continues to crave attention from his humans. Because he requires a lot of one-on-one attention, Foster Mom feels that he would appreciate being the only pet in the home. Chewy seems to get along with the other dogs and cats in his foster home, but would prefer not having to share the love. Chewy has had his dental and now has shiny white teeth - no extractions. Yeah.

Chewy’s foster parents continue to work with him on house-training – Foster Mom says that she feels he may never have been taken outside since he wasn’t accustomed to the feeling of grass under his feet. He will need a patient forever home where they will allow Chewy time to build up his confidence so that he understands he needs to do his business outdoors. Chewy continues to improve with his house-training manners, which is a good thing. Because Chewy doesn’t enjoy his outdoor time, it is felt that he was mostly kept either in a crate or in the house without being able to experience the wonders of nature.

Chewy gets along with older children as long as they are mature enough to know how to play with him. PLEASE NOTE: Due to his small size, Chewy can only be placed in a home with children 12 y/o or older. His social skills need a bit of work when outside – when he sees other dogs he is not familiar with, he has a tendency to want to run up to them, sometimes causing them to snap at him.

Chewy’s perfect furever home would be with a retired or stay-at-home person or couple; and it would be a BONUS if they had a fenced backyard. Foster Mom says that this little nugget has a very sweet nature about him and he is so ready for his forever home.

UPDATED BIO 02/26/2018: Chewy is such a sweetheart; he is friendly and loveable. According to his foster mom, Chewy craves attention, loves to cuddle with his foster parents, and loves to have his belly rubbed.

Chewy does not do well on a leash ,so going for walks does not interest him. At this time, he is not considered to be house-trained and is hit-and-miss with using a pee-pee pad. When left alone and at bedtime he does wear a bellyband to keep him from having accidents in the home. Foster Mom has observed that Chewy is timid and shies away from going outside to do his business. His foster parents are working with him to get him comfortable being outside so that he is confident when outdoors and learn that is where he is supposed to do his business.

Chewy gets along with older children as long as they are mature enough to know how to play with him. PLEASE NOTE: Due to his small size, Chewy can only be placed in a home with children 12 y/o or older. Chewy also seems to get along with the other dogs and cats in his foster home. His social skills need a bit of work when outside - when he sees other dogs he is not familiar with, he has a tendency to want to run up to them, sometimes causing them to snap at him.

Chewy's perfect furever home would be with a retired or stay-at-home person or couple; and it would be a BONUS if they had a fenced backyard.

Initial Bio 2-15-18 Chewy arrived at his foster home today and he is already making himself at home. He found a great place to rest, he had great food to eat, and is getting a lot of love and cuddles. The one thing not to his liking at all, is that he now has to walk on a leash to go outside to do his business. Chewy never had to be leashed walked before and he is not enjoying this new experience at all. Other than that, life is looking pretty good in his foster home.

Chewy belonged to someone for several years. One day this guy brought Chewy and his brother Boda to another home while he went away for a little while. One day their new mommy got a phone call. Seems this man didn't want Chewy or his brother anymore and was not coming to get them. He didn't care what happened to them. This very nice lady knew she had to keep them and so Chewy and Boda found themselves in a new home with a new family. After 2 years their new mommy found out she had to move across the country and didn't know how she could take both boys with her. She didn't even have a place for her to live. That was when she turned to United Yorkie Rescue for help, and that is how Chewy became a United Yorkie Rescue pup.

Chewy will be seeing the vet soon. He will need all his vaccinations, a heartworm test, and a well doggie check. There is much more to know about Chewy and the kind of home he will need to be his last and final forever home. More coming on Chewy very soon.


To date we've spent $355.00 on Chewy's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $25.00 in donations.

Cisco after grooming

I am adorable. I am sure you agree
Florida
Cisco

Cisco is 7-1/2 years old and currently weighs a skinny 3.07 lbs. He is being fostered in Lighthouse Point, FL.

THANK YOU TO CISCO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Paul and Patty Kirchner, Sandy Pagnotta, Patti Yancey, Vicki Tittle, Karry Rogers, Jayne Lanza, Paul and Patty Kirchner

UPDATED BIO 05/16/2018: Cisco is one of 26 dogs pulled by a sister rescue group from a horrendous hoarding/backyard breeding situation two months ago. He is one of the 10 dogs that UYR was able to bring into United Yorkie Rescue. All of these dogs were terribly neglected and medically-needy and were all living in an unsafe, unsanitary and over-crowded home with very little human interaction.

Little Cisco’s health has been a roller coaster since he was rescued from that awful backyard breeder where he had been since he was a puppy. When he arrived in his foster home, he was so malnourished that he weighed less than 2-1/2 pounds. He was extremely weak and fearful, not realizing that the new life he was about to experience would be vastly different from what he had known.

At the first of MANY vet appointments, the doctors were not sure that Cisco was going to recover. The teeth in his tiny little mouth were horribly rotten and his ears were full of both live and dead ear mites. He was placed on strong antibiotics and given a special high-calorie food so that he could gain at least 1 pound before they would consider giving him a much needed dental - the risk of anesthesia in his weakened state could not be taken.

Sadly, Cisco was not interested in the high-calorie food at all, and he was refusing to eat – all the while he was also getting more lethargic and withdrawn. He had to be immediately taken back to the vet, and given another round of expensive diagnostic tests, IV fluids and an appetite stimulant. For about 3 days, this little fella started eating a little bit and gained a couple of ounces and his foster parents were so grateful that it appeared things had turned around for him. After 3 days, little Cisco suddenly stopped eating again- foster mom offered him everything she could think of to stimulate his appetite - chicken, beef, turkey, lamb, salmon, eggs, canned dog food, dry dog food - but Cisco refused to eat. Another trip to the vet for more IV fluids was in order. The vet wanted to do his dental as soon as possible because his little mouth was hurting him so bad. Foster mom had to force feed Cisco with a syringe and he just hated it. This was not a good time for foster mom – and was even worse for Little Cisco

Cisco finally was able to have his dental and neuter and everyone was so hopeful that his poor appetite would continue to improve. Bad news again – Cisco once again refused to eat and starting losing weight again. Off to the vet again – at that visit, radiographs were taken as well as an ultrasound of his abdomen, and it was discovered that this poor little fella had a stomach inflammation that was causing him great pain, especially when he ate.

Moving forward – he was given another round of antibiotics and stronger meds in the hopes it would clear up the inflammation. But – once again – he didn’t improve. One more vet visit was in order, and after consulting with the vet about what Cisco’s life was like prior to being rescued by UYR, it was determined that his issues were most likely psychological. Cisco and another very tiny little older male yorkie were most likely the smallest ones living with another 24 dogs - all fighting for the little food which was thrown on the floor. Cisco was surely so frightened of that horrible scenario that he undoubtedly learned how to survive with small amounts of food. He didn’t know that his little body was about to fail.

This sweet little man is now being treated with an anti-depressant to make him more comfortable and less anxious with his new life. He is slowly improving and eating small portions several times a day. He has a long way to go, but he is a brave little fella and he is taking baby steps by learning how to be a beloved and cherished companion dog. It has been a heartbreaking experience for poor Cisco and for those who love and care for him.

Cisco’s countless vet visits, surgery and multiple diagnostic tests cost almost $1,800. His life surely matters, and UYR could not turn away from Cisco and the other 9 dogs that came in with him from this terrible situation. We are reaching out to our wonderful, compassionate and supportive donors to help us with not only Cisco’s vetting expenses, but also the high costs of the other dogs that came in with him – 4 of the 10 dogs were heartworm positive and are currently undering heartowm treatment. No donation is too small. If Cisco’s story touched your heart, please Click on the Donation button below. If you are unable to donate, please keep Cisco and his companions in your prayers.

PLEASE NOTE the following special circumstances:

- Due to Cisco’s small size, he cannot be adopted into a home with children; he needs an adult-only home. No exceptions will be made.

UPDATED BIO 05/01/2018: Cisco is one of 26 dogs pulled by a sister rescue group from a horrendous hoarding/backyard breeding situation today. He is one of the 10 dogs that UYR was able to bring into United Yorkie Rescue. All of these dogs were terribly neglected and medically-needy and were all living in an unsafe, unsanitary and over-crowded home with very little human interaction. All of them appear to be very sweet and docile, even though many of them may have hidden medical issues that we are not yet aware of.

Cisco continues to thrive in his foster home and is learning how to be a cherished companion dog. He is slowly gaining weight from his undernourished entry weight of 2.5 lbs. Cisco’s healthy weight would be around 4 lbs. He has a great appetite and prefers dry food, even though most of his remaining teeth are rotten and will he will likely lose them soon when he has a dental and a neuter on 05/10.

Cisco has slowly found his voice, and he thinks when the doggie companions in his foster home bark, he should bark louder! He is becoming a funny little character who is very curious and very active and always wants to be on the move. His previous overcrowded situation didn’t allow him to roam at will and he is enjoying this new-found freedom. Sweet! Visit here to see how Cisco is learning how to be a beloved companion dog. https://youtu.be/CkhyW0cwgVs.

PLEASE NOTE the following special circumstances:

- Due to Cisco’s small size, he cannot be adopted into a home with children; he needs an adult-only home. No exceptions will be made.

- Adoption applications are being accepted for Cisco; however, please keep in mind that he still has some vetting to be taken care of, and he must gain some much-needed weight before he will be ready for adoption. Please be patient with our process in considering adoption applications for Cisco. Our primary interest is getting this sweet boy healthy so that he can continue to enjoy a wonderful life in a loving, forever home.

- UYR is reaching out to our friends, supporters and generous donors in the hopes of raising the thousands of dollars it will cost our group to get Cisco healthy, as well as the 9 other dogs from the same hoarding/backyard breeding situation. They not only need to have their vaccinations updated, be neutered or spayed and have extensive labs, but they also need to emotionally heal from years of neglect. For the ones that are HW+, they will soon begin treatment which will last 4-5 months. If you have been moved by Cisco's story and his courage and resilience, please consider making a donation to UYR to cover vetting expenses and support our organization as we begin the long process of rehabilitating these precious little dogs.

UPDATED BIO 04/20/2018: At Cisco’s first vet visit, he was determined to be very underweight and was also severely dehydrated and hypoglycemic. After receiving fluids and a B12 injection, he is feeling much better. He also has a great appetite, so hopefully he will soon be at a much healthier weight, which should be around 4-5 lbs. Cisco, lovingly called “Little Peanut” by his foster mom, will have his dental and neuter once he reaches his optimum weight; sadly, he may lose most or all of his teeth since they were so horribly neglected. He doesn’t appear to have any other main health issues, and will see the vet next week for his updated vaccinations and weight check.

Cisco is active and curious, and very grateful to be rescued from the horrible conditions he has lived in all of his life. Foster Mom said that in Cisco’s previous over-crowded and neglectful situation, one thing he obviously did enjoy was having another doggie companion to pal around with. He has let her know that he really needs a forever home where he has a buddy, close to his size and age, and this would make him much happier.

PLEASE NOTE the following special circumstances:

- Due to Cisco’s small size, even when he has gained a few pounds, he cannot be adopted into a home with children; he needs an adult-only home. No exceptions will be made.

- Adoption applications are being accepted for Cisco; however, please keep in mind that he still has some vetting to be taken care of, and he must gain some much-needed weight before he will be ready for adoption.

INITIAL BIO 04/12/2018: Cisco is one of 25 dogs pulled by a sister rescue group from a horrendous hoarding/backyard breeding situation today. He is one of the 10 dogs that UYR was able to bring into United Yorkie Rescue. All of these dogs were terribly neglected and medically-needy and were all living in an unsafe, unsanitary and over-crowded home with very little human interaction. All of them appear to be very sweet and docile, even though many of them may have hidden medical issues that we are not yet aware of.

UPDATE: We have determined that 4 of the dogs that came in from this same backyard breeder have tested positive for heartworms. This means that those dogs must endure months of HW treatment which, for even a healthy dog, can be dangerous and sometimes deadly, and all of these dogs are in poor physical condition. Thank Goodness Cisco is HW-.

Cisco and the other precious little dogs did not come with any vetting information, and all need to be altered. They are all in poor condition, and many will need longer to recuperate from the horrible neglect than others. All have rotten mouths and most of them will likely lose all of their teeth. UYR is committed to caring for these dogs and providing them with a safe, compassionate and loving foster home, while at the same time letting them know the life ahead of them will be full of wonderful things.

UYR is reaching out to our friends, supporters and generous donors in the hopes of raising the thousands of dollars it will cost our group to make sure all of these dogs’ medical needs are taken care of, as well as their emotional needs. If you have been moved by Cisco’s story and his courage and resilience, please consider making a donation to UYR to cover vetting expenses.


To date we've spent $1700.90 on Cisco's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $335.00 in donations.

I am so glad to be out of that shelter

This is nicer than the shelter. My leg will get fixed soon
Florida
Dexter

Meet Dexter. He arrived in UYR with a hurt rear leg. Dexter is a 6-month-old Yorkie Mix. He weighs 8.6 pounds. He is being fostered in Leesburg, FL.

THANK YOU TO DEXTER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sherri Cipparone, Dexter

UPDATED 04/28/2018: Hello! My name is Dexter. I don’t think that was the first name I had, but that’s okay. When I went to my foster home, they gave me this nice new name. I only landed here two days ago, but I know my name already. I am just a puppy, so I must be a smart puppy, but not so smart that I didn’t manage to get lost from my first home and get hurt, too. Bummer.

Here is my story. I had a home - and then I didn’t. I ended up on the street and my right leg got really hurt. So here I was limping along trying to find my way back home when this big truck came and scooped me up and put me in the back. They took me to this place called a shelter. It was kind of loud because there were lots of other dogs there, but they gave me some food and a nice person they called a vet took some pictures of my leg and then they gave me some stuff to make me stop hurting so much. They also gave me some shots. None of this stuff was fun.

I waited in that noisy, so-not-fun place for my family to find me. They never came and that made me sad. I guess they already forgot about me. Then some other really kind people came and put me in their arms and took me to their home, my new foster home. There were some other nice dogs and a lot of good food there. I tried to have good manners and do my business outside and walk nicely on the leash because they didn’t want me to run on my bad leg.

The next day I spent the whole day at the doggie hospital. Some very nice doctors spent a lot of time with me checking out my leg and doing this surgery thing called a neuter. Yup. That also was a not-so-fun place, too and I hoped I would get out of there soon. When my new foster mommy and daddy came to get me, here’s what the nice vet lady told them. She said I was maybe 5 months old and I was a good, well-behaved puppy. I weigh 8.6 pounds and no one is quite sure what mixed-up breed I am. I have this beautiful long tail and they couldn’t decide what kind of a dog that came from, and I have a little yorkie face, but a longer body and long legs. Everyone said I am so adorable that it didn’t matter what all mix-a-doodle-do was in there. I think I am pretty cute, too.

The nice vet said that because my growth plates were still open since I am so young, it was best to let me just stay calm in either a crate or quiet on a lap or couch for the next two weeks. Then I will go back to get some stitches out where that neuter thing happened and they will take some more pictures of my leg. I hope it is healed because I am really having a hard time in that crate. I hate it. There is another puppy here that I want to play with and he wants to play with me, too. I want to run around, but I can’t—I always have to be on the leash. Lots of this not-so-fun stuff will still be happening for two more weeks and that is a very long time for such a young puppy like me. I like toys and I love my food. I love people and I am giving my new foster mom and dad lots and lots of kisses. I hope in 2 weeks I get a good report so I can go to my forever family soon. Then for sure some FUN things will be happening and the not-so-fun things will be behind me.

My foster mom is not sure if I would be good with kids or cats, but I do love people and I need an active family. I will also get a little bigger than I am now because I am still growing. Remember I am very young, so if you want me you, you better plan to spend at least another 15 years with me. And you need to promise to never let me get lost again.

Initial bio 4/26/18 Meet Dexter. Somehow this young fellow managed to get himself a broken leg and end up in the shelter. The shelter hoped that his owners would come get him because he needed to see a vet right away and get his leg fixed. Sadly, as often happens and with no identification, neither a collar nor a microchip to call his owners, no one ever came for him. When his hold period was up United Yorkie Rescue took him from the shelter. The shelter said even though he is just a young puppy, he seems so well behaved and calm. He will be taken to the vet tomorrow first thing to have his leg looked at. We are not sure if his leg will be able to be repaired with a splint or he will need major orthopedic surgery involving plates and screws.

Dexter has an adorable little face and a beautiful, long, bushy best tail ever. He was great in the car ride from the shelter. He likes being held, and he was good on the leash. Dexter is currently getting pain medication so it is hard to know the real Dexter and what his puppy personality will be, but he sure does seem to be a great pup.

Dexter is not happy to be in a crate, but his foster mom and dad don't want him running and playing and possibly hurting that leg anymore than it already is. Dexter does like the other dogs in the house and would really like to be with them. Although you can tell he is not happy, he is doing okay been confined in the crate.

Dexter's foster parents will know more tomorrow after his vet visit about what lies ahead for Dexter. The one thing they do know is that he is a sweet boy, gentle, and easy going, and that he has several weeks of healing ahead of him.


To date we've spent $247.73 on Dexter's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $150.00 in donations.
Please donate!

See what love and a grooming will do. Sweet.

Sad Gina when rescued
Florida
Gina

Meet Gina. She is 8 years old and weighs 6 lbs. Sadly, sweet Gina tested positive for heartworm disease. She is being fostered in Orlando, FL.

THANK YOU TO GINA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Lazara Hierro, Norma Dorsett, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Steven Opetaia-Williamson

UPDATED BIO 04/22/2018: Gina is one of 26 dogs pulled recently by a sister rescue group from a horrendous hoarding/backyard breeding situation. She is one of the 10 dogs that UYR was able to bring into our group.

Here’s what Gina had to say recently:

Hi again, it's Gina. I'm settling into my new home with my foster mom and two fur-sisters. A very nice lady came to my foster mom's house and gave me a wonderful haircut. I feel so much better. She must have cut a half pound of hair off me – that was the first haircut I can ever remember having that felt so good and she was so gentle with me. I liked it.

I sure do look and feel so much better, but I'm still a very sick little girl. When the nice people at UYR rescued me and a lot of my friends from a terrible home in South Florida, nobody knew that 4 of us would be heartworm positive. I was sad to find out that I was one of the 4 that had heartworms. My foster mom took me to the vet the day after I was rescued and he told us the bad news. Not only that, the vet said I had hookworms and infections in my ears and eyes. I had to take some yukky medicine for the hookworms. I'm also getting eye drops and ear medicine every day.

Now about the heartworms. I have to take pills twice a day now that I have started my heartworm treatment. Foster mom said that after two months of swallowing those darned pills every day, then I will start getting shots! OUCH! She said that it will take four months for all this to happen. Yikes. It's not going to be fun, but I know I am in good hands with my foster mom and she'll make it all right. She is gentle with me and holds me and kisses me and tells me all the time how beautiful I am and what a good girl I am. I like that. I have never had gentle hands touch me before I was rescued. Catch ya later. Gina, out.

PLEASE NOTE the following special circumstances:

- Due to Gina’s small size, she cannot be adopted into a home with children; she needs an adult-only home. No exceptions will be made.

- Adoption applications are being accepted for Gina; however, please keep in mind that she has tested positive for heartworms. This means that Gina must endure 4-5 months of heartworm treatment before she can go into her forever home. UYR follows the recommended treatment provided by the American Heartworm Society. Heartworm Treatment is very expensive and will cost approximately $800-$1,000 per dog. Currently, 4 out of the 10 dogs taken in with Gina tested positive for heartworms. Please consider a donation to help UYR continue to rescue and rehabilitate other dogs with heartworms.

- Please be patient with our process in considering adoption applications for Gina as our primary interest is supporting her during her heartworm treatment. Once Gina has completed treatment, she will be altered and receive any additional vaccinations needed. Our primary goal at this time is getting this sweet girl healthy so that she can continue to enjoy a wonderful life in a loving, forever home.

- UYR is reaching out to our friends, supporters and generous donors in the hopes of raising the thousands of dollars it will cost our group to get Gina healthy, as well as the 9 other dogs from the same hoarding/backyard breeding situation. They not only need to have their vaccinations updated, be neutered or spayed and have extensive labs, but they also need to emotionally heal from years of neglect. For the ones that are HW+, they will soon begin treatment which will last 4-5 months. If you have been moved by Gina's story and her courage and resilience, please consider making a donation to UYR to cover vetting expenses and support our organization as we begin the long process of rehabilitating these precious little dogs.

INITIAL BIO 04/12/2018: Gina is one of 25 dogs pulled by a sister rescue group from a horrendous hoarding/backyard breeding situation today. She is one of the 10 dogs that UYR was able to bring into United Yorkie Rescue. All of these dogs were terribly neglected and medically-needy and were all living in an unsafe, unsanitary and over-crowded home with very little human interaction. All of these dogs appear to be very sweet and docile, even though many of them may have hidden medical issues that we are not yet aware of.

PLEASE NOTE: Gina had her first vet check, and sadly - she tested positive for heartworms. This means that Gina must endure HW treatment that is very hard on any dog, and it will be even harder since Gina and the other dogs rescued are currently all in poor physical condition. She will be in her foster home for up to 4 months while she is undergoing HW treatment. So far, 4 out of the 10 dogs from this neglectful situation have tested positive for heartworm disease. It is hoped that the rest of the dogs from this backyard breeder who have not yet seen the vet will not be positive for heartworms. Prayers are appreciated and donations will be gladly accepted.

Gina and the other precious little dogs did not come with any vetting information, and all need to be altered. They are all in poor condition, and many will need longer to recuperate from the horrible neglect than others. All have rotten mouths and most of them will likely lose all of their teeth. UYR is committed to caring for these dogs and providing them with a safe, compassionate and loving foster home, while at the same time letting them know the life ahead of them will be full of wonderful things.

UYR is reaching out to our friends, supporters and generous donors in the hopes of raising the thousands of dollars it will cost our group to make sure all of these dogs’ medical needs are taken care of, as well as their emotional needs. If you have been moved by Gina's story and her courage and resilience, please consider making a donation to UYR to cover vetting expenses.


To date we've spent $342.90 on Gina's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $240.00 in donations.
Please donate!

Jazzy is happy in her loving foster home

Sad Jazzy when rescued
Florida
Jazzy

Jazzy is 8 years old and weighs 6.8 lbs. She is being fostered in Jacksonville, FL.

THANK YOU TO JAZZY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Robin Nyberg, Kelly Scoville

UPDATED BIO 05/08/2018: Hi – Jazzy here. I am slowly adjusting to my new digs and my new foster family, which includes my fur- brother & sister and my Foster Mom. I am very smart. I learned how to use the steps to get on the bed and surprised foster mom when she woke up. You may remember that I had four little puppies just a few days after I was rescued from my horrible neglectful situation, and sadly I lost my precious puppies. I was very protective of them at first and scared the cat with my protective behavior. She and I are slowly becoming friends. My fur-brother is a golden retriever and he is being a good big brother and is helping me learn about going outside to potty.

I am having trouble with a few other little issues. She is working with me so they are not going to continue being a problem for me at my fur-ever home. I am hoping you will consider a donation to UYR to support me and my brothers and sisters that were rescued from the same neglectful situation. Unfortunately, many had significant health issues and your donations will help UYR provide care for all the dogs they rescued - including me!

Note from Foster Mom: Jazzy will have her dental, spay and updated vaccinations the latter part of May. In the meantime, working on Jazzy’s behavior issues is on-going and although it is slow, we are making progress. It may be mid-June before Jazzy is ready for adoption. She has been a very popular little princess and has received numerous adoption applications. But, only one can be selected. Please know that we will find the most perfect fur-ever home for Jazzy. Please be patient with us during our approval process.

PLEASE NOTE the following special circumstances:

- Please be patient with our process in considering adoption applications for Jazzy as our primary interest is supporting her during her recovery. Our main goal at this time is getting Jazzy healthy so that she can continue to enjoy a wonderful life in a loving, forever home.

- UYR is reaching out to our friends, supporters and generous donors in the hopes of raising the thousands of dollars it will cost our group to get Jazzy healthy, as well as the 9 other dogs from the same hoarding/backyard breeding situation.

If you have been moved by Jazzy's story and her courage and resilience, please consider making a donation to UYR to cover vetting expenses and support our organization as we begin the long process of rehabilitating these precious little dogs.

UPDATED BIO 04/20/2018: Jazzy is recuperating nicely in her foster home and is slowly getting to know her fur-brother and sister. As soon as she has physically and emotionally recovered from losing the 4 puppies she gave birth to only days after being rescued, she will return to the vet for her dental, spay and other necessary medical intervention. Although Jazzy lost the pups, she is gradually learning what it is like to be loved and spoiled. Luckily, she will never have another litter and can just spend time learning how to be loved the way it should have always been.

LATE UPDATE! Jazzy is Heartworm negative. We are all very thankful for this news!

UPDATED BIO 04/17/2018: Jazzy is one of the several dogs recently rescued from a hoarder/puppy mill situation recently by a sister rescue group, and 10 of these dogs came to United Yorkie Rescue. Initially, Jazzy’s age was estimated to be 5 years old and a guesstimate on her weight was 8 pounds – Jazzy was pregnant when rescued. When seen by the vet, he felt she was closer to 8 years old and her post-pregnancy weight is 6.8 pounds. He also suspected that she had at least 3-4 litters previously.

Sweet Jazzy arrived in Foster Mom’s home on Thursday afternoon; she delivered 4 puppies the following Sunday night - 2 girls and 2 boys. Sadly, the girls did not survive and the boys were extremely tiny at only 2 ounces each. Yorkie puppies are typically 3-4 ounces at birth, and the little males were half that size. One of the breeding males rescued was only 1.5 pounds which most likely was the sire. However, in these hoarder/backyard breeder situations, there is no way to know which male bred which female.

Jazzy had very large nipples due to all the previous litters, and this made it very difficult for the teeny-tiny mouths of the males to latch on and stay. Foster Mom assisted her with every feeding to ensure that the boys received proper nourishment. Unfortunately, at less than 24 hours old, one puppy was found gasping for air and did not respond to stimulation and ultimately died. The next morning the other puppy joined his brother and sisters at the Rainbow Bridge. These precious little puppies barely survived 24 hours!

Why were these pups so small? They looked full-term. Here’s the best explanation – all of these dogs lived in horrible conditions. The breeding females were housed in a backyard shed with no air conditioning, foul odors, inadequate nutrition, and little to no human contact - and the list goes on. Why? The answer is a simple one - money! They were being bred indiscriminately for greed, with no care about the conditions under which these dogs were subjected to their entire lives. One nursing female that was rescued had 3-three-week old puppies, and for the puppies to remain with the mother, the rescue organization – Florida Yorkie Rescue - had to quickly raise money to pay $500 each for the pups so they could remain with the rescued mother.

Jazzy was rescued barely 3 days before she delivered her puppies or the situation would have been the same for her. She was a great mom and it’s unfortunate her pups were not healthy because of the horrendous conditions she endured while pregnant. However, Jazzy will never have puppies that will be taken from her too soon, to be sold for profit. She will be pampered and loved by her Foster Mom, which will be the first time in her life she has felt comfort and safety – and love. Once Jazzy has recovered from her delivery and had time to emotionally heal, she will be spayed and brought up-to-date on her vaccinations in preparation for her forever home.

PLEASE NOTE: We have determined that 4 of the dogs that came in from this same backyard breeder have tested positive for heartworms. This means that these little ones must endure months of HW treatment which, for even a healthy dog, can be dangerous and sometimes deadly, and all of these dogs are in poor physical condition. We are hopeful that Jazzy will be HW negative. Prayers are appreciated and donations will be gladly accepted.

It is our prayer that Jazzy’s story will help you understand the multi-layered issues associated with hoarders, puppy mills and backyard breeders. Many dogs we took from this situation have major health issues. All need to be altered and have much-needed vaccinations (maybe for the first time in their lives). For the ones that are HW+, the heartworm treatment for each dog could be up to $900. 4 of the 10 dogs that UYR took in have tested HW+ and several have not yet been tested.

It is amazing to the rescuers and foster homes that most of these precious little dogs are very sweet and appreciative that help came when it did. Once they have all been vetted and are ready for adoption, they will be placed in wonderful loving homes where they can continue to feel safe and loved for the rest of their lives. If you have read Jazzy’s story and it has pulled at your heartstrings, please consider helping United Yorkie Rescue prepare these dogs for their forever homes by making a donation. You can click the PayPal donation button at the end of each of their bios and donate several different ways, either with a PayPal donation or debit/credit card. Your donation will allow rescue groups like United Yorkie Rescue and our sister rescue groups continue to help other little homeless and helpless dogs like Jazzy and the others rescued from this situation.

UPDATED BIO 04/13/2018: Please read Jazzy’s story below and the horrendous conditions in which she was living when rescued. Jazzy has been used as a breeder her entire life, and probably has had numerous litters of beautiful puppies which were taken from her way too soon.

Jazzy’s coat was shaved down when rescued, but the hair on her head was long and covered her eyes. Her nails were like daggers and we needed to be careful with them. Her hair has been trimmed around her face and we found a sweet loving expression that goes with her personality. She had a pedicure to remove the daggers and long hair around her feet. Jazzy is scheduled for a spa day to remove the urine odor and feel fresh and clean as she begins her new life with Foster Mom.

PLEASE NOTE: We have just found out that 4 of the 10 of the dogs that came in from this same backyard breeder has tested positive for heartworms. This means that this little one must endure months of HW treatment which, for even a healthy dog, can be dangerous and sometimes deadly, and all of these dogs are in poor physical condition. We are hopeful that Jazzy will be HW negative. Prayers are appreciated and donations will be gladly accepted.

Please stay tuned for updates on Jazzy.

Lily is happy in her foster home

Sad Lily on rescue day
Florida
Lily

Meet Lily. She is 6 years old and weighs 8.2 lbs. Sadly, Sweet Lily has tested positive for heartworm disease. She is being fostered in St. Augustine, FL.

THANK YOU TO LILY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Trula Montgomery, Karry Rogers

UPDATED BIO 05/11/2018: Lily is one of 25 dogs pulled by a sister rescue group recently from a horrendous hoarding/backyard breeding situation. She is one of the 10 dogs that United Yorkie Rescue brought into our group. Sadly, 4 of the 10 dogs tested positive for heartworm disease and Sweet Lily was one of them.

Foster Mom says that it is hard to believe Lily was rescued just a month ago as this sweet girlie has come a very long way in this short time. She is very smart, and is now house-trained, which is a big deal for a dog that has known nothing in her life but an over-crowded hoarding/backyard breeding situation. Because none of the dogs from this horrible situation were socialized, Lily is still somewhat afraid of people, but her foster mom and dad are working with her daily, and having her meet as many family members and friends as possible. Lily likes being with her foster parents, and when foster mom is in her home office, Lily and the other dogs and a cat are there with her, usually sound asleep and content.

Lily loves going outside, playing, running and barking with the other dogs. It took her a while to find her voice, but that happened a few weeks ago and she will now happily bark when the others do. Lily is a very sweet and lovely dog. She is not currently what one would consider a lap dog, but in time her foster parents feel that she may soon come to enjoy being very close to her people – she has never experienced this before and for some dogs from situations like Lily came from, it takes more time.

Lily has started her heartworm treatment with antibiotics for 25 days; then she will return to the vet to see if she is healthy enough to continue the treatment. If so, it will be a several months of treatment, and then her dental and spay will be scheduled, along with removal of some potential mammary gland tumors.

Lily does have some issues with her back legs, and the vet suspects that she has bilateral luxating patellas and has had this issue for a long time without treatment. Her knees do not seem to bother her as she still runs and walks, and only occasionally has a bit of a limp on the back left leg, but does not seem to be in any pain. Finally, this precious little girl is a happy dog.

PLEASE NOTE the following special circumstances:

- Lily can only be adopted into a home with children aged 14 or older.

- Adoption applications are being accepted for Lily; however, please keep in mind that she has tested positive for heartworms. This means that Lily must endure 4-5 months of heartworm treatment before she can go into her forever home. UYR follows the recommended treatment protocol recommended by the American Heartworm Society. Heartworm Treatment is very expensive and will cost approximately $800-$1,000 per dog. Currently, 4 out of the 10 dogs taken in with Lily tested positive for heartworms. Please consider a donation to help UYR continue to rescue and rehabilitate other dogs with heartworms.

- Please be patient with our process in considering adoption applications for Lily as our primary interest is supporting her during her heartworm treatment. Once Lily has completed treatment, she will be altered and receive any additional vetting needed. Our primary goal at this time is getting Lily healthy so that she can continue to enjoy a wonderful life in a loving, forever home.

- UYR is reaching out to our friends, supporters and generous donors in the hopes of raising the thousands of dollars it will cost our group to get Lily healthy, as well as the 9 other dogs from the same hoarding/backyard breeding situation.

UPDATED BIO 04/21/2018: Lily is one of 25 dogs pulled by a sister rescue group recently from a horrendous hoarding/backyard breeding situation. She is one of the 10 dogs that UYR was able to bring into United Yorkie Rescue. Lily came in not only with heartworm disease, but with bilateral ear infections. She will see the vet on Monday to check her ears, and potentially begin her heartworm treatment.

Lily is slowly becoming more interested in her foster mom and dad and the little pack of doggies in her home. She is a very good eater and doesn’t mind taking her meds. She is a timid little girlie, probably because of the circumstances of her existence in an over-crowded and chaotic environment, but she does come out to check on everyone regularly. Foster mom was pleased that just last night, Lily asked to get up on the loveseat with her and the resident dogs. Please stay tuned for more information on this sweet little girlie.

Lydia is a great momma

Lydia and her adorable puppies
Florida
Lydia

Meet Lydia. She is 5 1/2 years old and weighs 10.4 lbs. Lydia just gave birth to 3 healthy puppies! She is being fostered in Bunnell, FL..

THANK YOU TO LYDIA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Kerri Carubia, Irene and Peter Havas

UPDATED BIO 04/24/2018: Lydia is one of 26 dogs pulled recently by a sister rescue group from a horrendous hoarding/backyard breeding situation. She is one of the 10 dogs that United Yorkie Rescue brought into our group.

Sweet Lydia was pregnant and only days away from giving birth when she was rescued. She gave birth a few days ago to 3 healthy little female puppies and both Lydia and her puppies are doing well.

Lydia is a great little mommy to her puppies. We want to allow her to nurture them as this will be the last litter of puppies this sweet girl will have. Once the puppies are weaned (approximately 6 weeks), it will be at least 6-8 additional weeks before she can be spayed. We feel it is in Lydia’s best interests, and also the puppies’ best interests, that she stay with them until they are adopted. The time newborn puppies spend with their mothers -- and also their littermates -- is crucial on so many different levels, from receiving the proper nourishment to learning necessary social skills for the future.

PLEASE NOTE the following special circumstances:

- Adoption applications are being accepted for Lydia; however, please keep in mind that it will be several months before she will be ready for adoption. Please be patient with our process in considering adoption applications for Lydia. Our primary interest is getting this sweet girl and her newborn puppies healthy so that they can continue to enjoy a wonderful life in loving, forever homes.

- UYR is reaching out to our friends, supporters and generous donors in the hopes of raising the thousands of dollars it will cost our group to get Lydia and her puppies healthy, as well as the 9 other dogs from the same hoarding/backyard breeding situation. They not only need to have their vaccinations updated, be neutered or spayed and have extensive labs, but they also need to emotionally heal from years of neglect. For the ones that are HW+, they will soon begin treatment which will last 4-5 months. If you have been moved by Lydia's story and her courage and resilience, please consider making a donation to UYR to cover vetting expenses and support our organization as we begin the long process of rehabilitating these precious little dogs.

INITIAL BIO 04/12/2018: Lydia is one of 25 dogs pulled by a sister rescue group from a horrendous hoarding/backyard breeding situation today. She is one of the 10 dogs that UYR was able to bring into United Yorkie Rescue. All of these dogs were terribly neglected and medically-needy and were all living in an unsafe, unsanitary and over-crowded home with very little human interaction. All of these dogs appear to be very sweet and docile, even though many of them may have hidden medical issues that we are not yet aware of.

PLEASE NOTE: We have determined that Lydia is HW- and we are so grateful for this news. As with all the females from this awful situation, Lydia has been used as a breeder her entire life, and probably has had numerous litters of beautiful puppies which were taken from her way too soon. Lydia is currently pregnant again and will most likely deliver her puppies in the next few weeks. She seems to be adjusting well to her new foster home, especially considering the fact that she was kept in a shed with other breeding females. Right now, she is decompressing, and all she wants is to be close to her Foster Mom and as long as she can see her, she is an angel. Prayers are appreciated and donations will be gladly accepted.

Lydia and the other precious little dogs did not come with any vetting information, and all need to be altered. They are all in poor condition, and many will need longer to recuperate from the horrible neglect than others. All have rotten mouths and most of them will likely lose all of their teeth. UYR is committed to caring for these dogs and providing them with a safe, compassionate and loving foster home, while at the same time letting them know the life ahead of them will be full of wonderful things.

UYR is reaching out to our friends, supporters and generous donors in the hopes of raising the thousands of dollars it will cost our group to make sure all of these dogs’ medical needs are taken care of, as well as their emotional needs. If you have been moved by Lydia's story and her courage and resilience, please consider making a donation to UYR to cover vetting expenses.


To date we've spent $403.87 on Lydia's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $120.00 in donations.
Please donate!

I am pretty. Oh So Pretty.

I am looking for you to be mine
Florida
Maggie

Sweet Maggie is 2.5 years old and currently weighs 9.1 pounds. Maggie is on a special protocol for treating a potential liver issue. She is being fostered in North Port, FL.

THANK YOU TO MAGGIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Angie Cheeks

UPDATED BIO 05/14/2018: Maggie was surrendered by her owners when they realized they were no longer able to take care of her. She seems to be doing great on her meds and her special diet of Science Diet L/D which is indicated due to an imbalance in her liver values. It is likely that Maggie will need to be on this medication/special diet protocol for the rest of her life. Maggie can live a long, happy and healthy life by adhering to this regimen.

Maggie doesn’t know that her liver values are off a bit and acts just like any other young 2-1/2 year-old pup. She is very friendly and sweet and loves her foster mom and dad. Actually,

she loves everyone, including dogs of all sizes and even kitty cats! Another Bile Acid Test will be done in June, and the results will determine when Maggie may be ready to go to her forever loving home.

UPDATED BIO 03/29/2018: Maggie was surrendered by her owners when they realized they were no longer able to take care of her. She is doing well with taking Lactulose and a special diet of Science Diet L/D which is indicated to treat her potential liver shunt. She must know that the meds are helping her feel better since she doesn't complain when taking them. Sweet! Foster Mom says that Maggie will hop like a bunny into either her or Foster Dad's laps and give them tons of kisses. Maggie is also now enjoying running like the wind in the back yard.

Maggie will have another Bile Acids test in the first week of May, and the results will determine if the meds and special diet are working. If this is the case, then she will be ready adoption at that time, and will need to be on her medication/special diet protocol for the rest of her life. Maggie can live a long and happy life by adhering to this regimen. Stay tuned for future updates on this little princess.

Initial bio 3-4-18 Maggie was surrendered by her owners when they realized they were no longer able to take care of her. They learned she may have a liver shunt, and with a new baby in the home she was not getting the care they knew she needed. At 2 and a half years old she may be too old for the liver shunt surgery, but she will be put on the special Rx food formulated for dogs with liver issues. She should do very well on this food as long as she stays on this food for life and is under the care of a vet who will monitor her liver values. At 2 1/2 years old she most likely has many many years, at least 10 or more, left in her.

Maggie's foster mom said Maggie is too skinny and needs to put some weight on her. Once she sees the vet and gets on the LD food Maggie should put on the weight she needs and go on to live a long life.

Maggie seems to be very friendly and sweet and has already taken up residence on her foster dad's lap. She is getting along with the other fur friends in her foster home. She is not yet house trained, but her foster parents will be working on that with her. We will know more about Maggie and her possible liver shunt after her vet visit.

Please come back soon to see what we find out about this adorable, sweet little girl.


To date we've spent $417.50 on Maggie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $50.00 in donations.

Marley is such a good puppy girl

Maverick and me want to be adopted together
Florida
Marley

Meet Marley (and Maverick). Marley is an adorable yorkshire terrier/silky terrier mix. She is 11 months old and weighs a skinny 10 lbs. She and Maverick are bonded littermates and would like to be adopted together.

THANK YOU TO MARLEY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Trula Montgomery

UPDATED BIO 05/12/2018: Marley and her brother Maverick are two sweet, sweet puppies who were surrendered to United Yorkie Rescue because their dad was very sick and unable to care for them. They love each other very much and would love to be adopted together.

Marley is a sweet girl that enjoys playing with her brother Maverick. She is still a bit on the thin side but has a good appetite and will fill out soon enough. She is a little shy of people at first and will hide behind Maverick when confronted with a new situation/person, but eventually warms up to be a very loving pup. It appears that Marley is currently very dependent on her brother Maverick as he provides her with a sense of security. They are still young puppies and this may change as they both become more confident and comfortable in their surroundings.

Marley is a very smart girl and is pee-pee-pad trained and does very well with it. Foster mom says that Marley and Maverick have been a pleasure to foster, and knows that they will make some lucky family very happy. Marley is fully vetted and ready to be adopted along with her brother Maverick. They are littermates and have always been together. They are truly a bonded pair and there isn’t any indication in the foster home that this will change. Can you find it in your heart to adopt sweet Marley and Maverick? They would be happy to be in a home with gentle children who understands their sweet and timid personalities.

INITIAL BIO 04/18/2018: Marley and her brother Maverick are two sweeties who were surrendered to United Yorkie Rescue because their dad was very sick and unable to care for them. They love each other very much and would love to be adopted together. They are typical puppies and their favorite activity is to play, play and then play some more. Please stay tuned as their foster parents get to learn more about them.


To date we've spent $0 on Marley's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $20.00 in donations.

Mattie Mae here. I am looking good.

I am cute. Do you agree?
Florida
Mattie Mae

Mattie Mae is 10 years old and weighs a skinny 4.7 pounds. She is being fostered in The Villages, FL.

THANK YOU TO MATTIE MAE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Irene and Peter Havas, Trula Montgomery, Molly Boatman

UPDATED BIO 05/04/2018: Hi everyone! Mattie Mae here with the latest and greatest pup-date on me! I went to the dogtor for a check-up and I'm still a little peanut at 4.7 lbs! I got some of my vaccinations updated, but not my rabies or my dental. I still have to wait a little while for that, but I don't mind. Foster mommy tells me that I am sweet and cute and well-behaved. I totally agree with that.

I'm loving life here with my foster mommy, but I'm ready to be someone's little forever sweetheart, so let me tell you some of my likes and dislikes. Here’s what the perfect home for me would be:

- I really need a retired or stay-at-home mommy or daddy because I LOVE to be around my people. I don't like to be at home alone very much. When my people do go away and then come back, I get very excited to see them. Foster mommy thinks that maybe I have a little bit of separation anxiety, and she's probably right. I can be home alone for short periods, but really prefer to have someone at home to snuggle with and pet me.

- I like belly rubs so much that when foster mommy stops I nudge her hand for more - aren't I cute? So my forever parents would have to cater to my need for lots of belly rubs.

- I get along most of the time with my fur-siblings, but sometimes I get jealous that they are getting more attention than I am and I get a little grumpy! So even though I get along with other doggies, I'd really prefer to be the only dog in the house. In fact, I want to be the only pet in the house - that way you can focus all your love on me!

Please don’t turn away from me because I’m considered a “senior”. I am happy and healthy and have tons of love to give to my forever parents. I promise you that I will love you forever and ever - and that could be a l-o-n-g time. If you are looking for a little companion who loves to be close to you all the time giving and getting love, then fill out an application and ask for me. Love and kisses, Mattie Mae

UPDATED BIO 4/18/2018: Hi everybody! Mattie Mae here. I wanted to give you all a pupdate on how life is going in my foster home. Boy, life is so much better now that I am here! My foster mom tells me all the time that I am so sweet and loving. I love to be by her side or on her lap and have her pet me. She says that I am a friendly girl who likes to be around people. I like children too ,but they have to be over the age of 12 because I am so small and could get hurt easily.

I have a couple of fur siblings who are close to my age and “chill” like I am. I get along well with them and would do ok in a home with one other doggie companion like that. I’d also be happy to be the only dog so that I can have all the attention to myself. I’ve never met a cat so I’m not sure I’d be happy with one of those in the house.

I still need to gain some weight before I can get my shots and dental. I love to eat, so gaining weight is ok with me! My teeth are not very pretty! Foster mom cleans them with a q-tip and uses hydrogen peroxide on them and my sore gums. I am a good girl and sit still why she does it. I know that she is trying to help me feel better. My skin is getting better and my hair is growing in, thanks to foster mom giving me medicated baths and fish oil supplements. My new furever owner may need to continue with both in order to keep my skin and hair healthy.

I’m house-trained, but …. I do sometimes have accidents in the house. Foster mom had my urine checked by the dogter and he said everything is A-OK. So I guess I just have a weak or small bladder which makes me have to go potty every couple of hours. Because I have to go out so often, I need a stay-at-home or retired furever mommy or daddy. I also take cranberry supplements which have seemed to help.

I love to go for walks and do well on a leash. I also love to go for rides in my stroller and in the car. I’m a happy little curious and calm gal who just wants someone who will cuddle and love me. I will give you lots of love in return.

PLEASE NOTE: Because of Mattie Mae’s small size, she cannot be adopted into a home with children under the age of 12 years old.

UPDATED BIO 03/27/2018: Mattie Mae was surrendered to United Yorkie Rescue when her owner no longer wanted to care for her. She was going to be surrendered with her brother Max, but he was too sick and was euthanized before becoming a United Yorkie Rescue foster dog.

Mattie Mae saw the vet yesterday and she is very underweight - her healthy weight should be about 6 lbs. She loves to eat and now that she is on a premium quality dog food, she should gain that weight quickly. Mattie definitely needs a dental and vaccinations, and once her blood panel is back and we know that she is healthy enough to undergo anesthesia, she will have a dental so that no bacteria from her badly-infected mouth will travel through her little body. Her vaccinations will be done once she gains some much-needed weight. This little sweetie appears to have had skin infections in the past - most likely yeast infections - and although her skin is clear now, she does have areas of black, leathery skin as a result of past untreated infections. These areas certainly don't affect her cuteness factor!

In spite of the total absence of medical care in the recent past, Mattie Mae is a sweet doggie, though a little timid. She is already enjoying sitting on her foster mom's lap and cuddling with her. Please come back and visit Mattie Mae as we learn more about her medical needs and discover her true personality.

Initial bio 3/25/18 Mattie Mae was surrendered to United Yorkie Rescue when her owner no longer wanted to care for her. She was going to be surrendered with her brother Max, but he was too sick and was euthanized before becoming a United Yorkie Rescue pup. We are not sure about Mattie's history, but she will need a lot of vet care. Her toenails are too long and curling into her toe pads, she has some hair loss, and she will need all vaccinations including a heartworm test and blood work. Mattie has already lost many teeth and will be scheduled for a dental soon. It is likely she may lose more, if not all, of her teeth as they are not in good shape. It is very likely that Mattie Mae has not been to the vet or received any vet care in a long time.

Mattie is scheduled to see the vet tomorrow and more will be known about her medical issues. We will also know her weight and get a better idea of her age.

In spite of the lack of medical care, Mattie Mae is a sweet pup, though a little timid. She is already enjoying sitting on her foster mom's lap and cuddling with her.

Please come back and visit Mattie Mae as we learn more about her medical needs and discover her true personality.

Maverick is a very sweet boy who loves everything and everybody. He is playful and enjoys playing with his sister Marley and the other pups in the home. Maverick is a very smart boy and is pee-pee-pad trained and does very well with it. He likes to run and slide like he is going into home base. He also likes to chew anything he can get his paws on – just like a typical puppy his age. He is a lover boy and will steal kisses anytime he can.

Maverick is fully vetted and ready to be adopted along with his sister Marley. They are littermates and have always been together.

Handsome Opie after grooming

Sad Opie when rescued.
Florida
Opie

Meet Opie. He is estimated to be 8 years old and weighs approximately 5.9 lbs. Sadly, Sweet Opie is heartworm positive. He is being fostered in Ocala, FL.

THANK YOU TO OPIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Chris Gaastra, Wendy Fuhrmaneck

UPDATED BIO 04/21/2018: Opie is one of 26 dogs pulled by a sister rescue group from a horrendous hoarding/backyard breeding situation today. He is one of the 10 dogs that came into United Yorkie Rescue. Opie is adjusting well in his foster home and loves his fur-brothers. They are older and calm - just what Opie needs. None of the dogs from this horrible situation were house-trained or leash-trained, so foster mom is working with him on and he is showing progress. Opie is a little love bug who loves to be held and give kisses. He also likes to sleep in bed with his foster mom and fur-brothers. Foster mom says that he is a quiet and well-behaved little boy.

Opie has received his vaccinations, but still needs to be neutered and have his teeth cleaned. He will not be able to have those things done until he has been treated for heartworms. Opie loves his foster mom and the other dogs in the home, but he is looking forward to the time he can be adopted and go to his furever family.

PLEASE NOTE the following special circumstances:

- Due to Opie’s small size, he cannot be adopted into a home with children; Opie needs an adult-only home. No exceptions will be made.

- Adoption applications are being accepted for Opie; however, please keep in mind that he has tested positive for heartworms. This means that Opie must endure 4-5 months of heartworm treatment before he can go into his forever home. UYR follows the recommended treatment protocol provided by the American Heartworm Society. Heartworm Treatment is very expensive and will cost approximately $800-$1,000 per dog. Currently, 4 out of the 10 dogs taken in with Opie tested positive for heartworms. Please consider a donation to help UYR continue to rescue and rehabilitate other dogs with heartworms.

- Please be patient with our process in considering adoption applications for Opie as our primary interest is supporting him during his heartworm treatment. Once Opie has completed treatment, he will be altered and have a dental. Our primary goal at this time is getting Opie healthy so that he can continue to enjoy a wonderful life in a loving, forever home.

- UYR is reaching out to our friends, supporters and generous donors in the hopes of raising the thousands of dollars it will cost our group to get Opie healthy, as well as the 9 other dogs from the same hoarding/backyard breeding situation. They not only need to have their vaccinations updated, be neutered or spayed and have extensive labs, but they also need to emotionally heal from years of neglect. For the ones that are HW+, they will soon begin treatment which will last 4-5 months. If you have been moved by Opie's story and his courage and resilience, please consider making a donation to UYR to cover vetting expenses and support our organization as we begin the long process of rehabilitating these precious little dogs.

All of these dogs appear to be very sweet and docile, even though many of them may have hidden medical issues that we are not yet aware of.

PLEASE NOTE: Opie had his first vet check, and sadly - he tested positive for heartworms. This means that Opie must endure HW treatment that is very hard on any dog, and it will be even harder since Opie and the other dogs rescued are currently all in poor physical condition. He will be in his foster home for up to 4 months while he is undergoing HW treatment. It is hoped that none of the other dogs from this backyard breeder test positive for heartworms. So far, 4 out of the 10 dogs from this neglectful situation have tested positive for heartworm disease. Prayers are appreciated and donations will be gladly accepted.

Opie and the other precious little dogs did not come with any vetting information, and all need to be altered.

Remy is adorable
Florida
Remy

Say hello to Remy. This sweet 9-1/2 year old Yorkie boy weighs 6 lbs. Little Remy is being fostered in North Port, FL.

THANK YOU TO REMY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Maritza Caldas

INITIAL BIO 04/28/2018: Remy just arrived at his UYR foster home today. His previous mom and dad both worked outside the home and this sweet boy was always very upset when they would leave the house. He does not enjoy being left alone, even if for just a little while. Remy is getting along fine with the other doggies and kitty-cats in the home. He has already given his foster mom and dad lots of kisses.

Remy is a very smart little fella and has already learned to go in the backyard and do his business.!! He will be seeing the vet this week for a well-doggie check and to check his remaining 3 teeth to ensure they are still sound. He loves his new food and is a really good eater.

Remy's perfect home would be one in which there is at least one stay-at-home person or perhaps a retired couple. Foster Mom says that Remy is a sweet little fella and sticks to her like glue. He is truly a Velcro dog. Once Remy sees the vet, he should be ready to go to his furever home. Stay tuned for updated information on this sweet boy.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Remy's small size, he cannot go into a home with children under the age of 14 years old.

Adoption Pending

To date we've spent $215.00 on Remy's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $200.00 in donations.

Look at me now. I am cute.

I could be your cutie-patootie
Florida
Rosie

Rosie is a 6 year old Yorkie/Schnauzer mix (a Snorkie!). Rosie weighs 13.2 lbs and is being fostered in Orlando, FL.

THANK YOU TO ROSIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sharon Springman, Norma Dorsett

UPDATED BIO 05/14/2018: Rosie’s previous owner surrendered her to Animal Control for unknown reasons. It was determined when Rosie came into UYR two months ago that she has limited vision. After multiple visits to the nice Ophthalmology Specialists and several rounds of different eye drops, the news isn’t what we all hoped for. Sadly, none of the drops have helped Rosie’s eyes, which will never be able to produce tears again and she is not a candidate for surgery. The specialist said she will need to use artificial tears such as Gen Teal Lubricant Eye Gel for the rest of her life to keep her eyes from being so scratchy and dry.

Here’s what Sweet Rosie wants you to know:

Rosie here. I wanted to give everyone an update on how I am doing. My foster mom thinks I can see shapes and differentiate between light and dark. If I were to try to describe the way I see things, it is like I am looking through a prism. But don't worry about me! I can get around just fine and I hardly ever bump into anything. And I listen to my Foster Mom when she talks to me and that helps me to find her and follow her.

I am such a clever girl. I'm house-trained and I walk well on a leash. I love to be petted and scratched behind my ears. I love to cuddle with my foster mom. She says I AM a good girl and I believe her. I like people and other dogs.

I would love to be your little girl. I would like to be in a loving home with a mom/dad who is retired or works from home. I would like to have one stay-at-home parent since I don’t like to be left alone for long periods due to my visual impairment. If you are reading about how smart and loving I am, maybe you could be my new forever home? I really love it here in my foster home with my foster sisters, but I long for my own forever home. Foster Mom calls me a real sweetheart. I would love to be your forever sweetheart …. you won’t be disappointed if you adopt me.

UPDATED BIO 04/02/2018: Rosie has been in her foster home for a couple of days now. Her previous owner surrendered her to Animal Control for unknown reasons. She visited the vet today and they determined that she does have limited vision, but there is so much hyper-pigmentation covering her eyes, it is hard to tell what she can or cannot see. Her eyes are severely dry and she will need to have RX eye-drops in her eyes several times a day for the rest of her life. It is possible that her vision may be improved somewhat after a couple of weeks of eye-drops, but that hasn’t been determined yet.

It was also determined that sweet Rosie also had bilateral ear infections, but that certainly doesn’t change the fact that she is a real sweetheart and very playful. Here’s what Rosie had to say the day she was rescued:

Rosie here. My previous owner gave me up to Animal Control – I don’t know what I did that was wrong. I thought I was always a good girl. The people at Animal Control said I was a very sweet girl.

Anyway, I am so grateful to the nice lady from UYR for rescuing me. I think she's called my foster mom, but I'll call her my angel mom for now. She brought me to her house and took me to her huge backyard. It's there that I met my new fur-sister, Leia. We're going to become good friends, I just know it. My foster mom fed me some really good food, then showed me where the water bowl is.

You see, I don't see very well (pun intended). There's something wrong with my eyes. I'll know more when my foster mom takes me to her vet on Monday. Don't worry, my visual impairment does not negatively affect me. I listen to my foster mom's voice and just follow it. Easy, peasy!

I'm current on my vaccinations and I'm spayed. I'm house-trained, I walk well on a leash and I'm also crate trained. Aren’t I smart? I love to be petted and scratched behind my ears. I love to cuddle with my foster mom. She says I AM a good girl and I believe her.

I would love to be your little girl. I like people and other dogs. My foster mom hasn't seen me interact with children or cats yet. I would like to be in a loving home with a mom/dad who is retired or works from home. I would like to have one stay-at-home parent since I don’t like to be left alone for long periods due to my visual impairment. If you are reading about how smart and loving I am, maybe you could be my new forever home? You won't be disappointed.

Sad Sophie when rescued

Sophie after grooming
Florida
Sophie

Meet Sophie. She is 9 years old and weighs 7.6 lbs. Sadly, Sweet Sophie has tested positive for heartworm disease. She is being fostered in Palm Coast, FL

THANK YOU TO SOPHIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Karry Rogers, Lynne Turner, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, John Sauser

UPDATED BIO 04/20/2018: Sophie continues to do well in her foster home in spite of several on-going medical issues. In addition to being HW+, Sophie also has a Grade I/VI heart murmur which is mostly insignificant, but should be monitored. She is also being treated for a UTI due to her frequent urination and dribbling, bless her heart. She will have a dental once she is healthy enough to do so and will likely lose all her teeth due to sheer neglect.

There is no doubt that this precious little girl has endured a lot of emotional trauma and neglect in her life. It has been determined that she does have impaired hearing. Sophie also has bilateral cataracts but is able to see shadows and gets around the house just fine. Foster Mom said that this lovely girl is a total lovebug and a sweetheart. Once she has gone through her HW treatment and had a dental, she will be ready for adoption. Sophie’s needs are but a few - she needs love and a stable home who understands her special needs and will adore her – forever and ever.

PLEASE NOTE the following special circumstances:

- Adoption applications are being accepted for Sophie; however, please keep in mind that shehas tested positive for heartworms. This means that Sophie must endure 4-5 months of heartworm treatment before she can go into her forever home. UYR follows the recommended treatment protocol recommended by the American Heartworm Society. Heartworm Treatment is very expensive and will cost approximately $800-$1,000 per dog. Currently, 4 out of the 10 dogs taken in with Sophie tested positive for heartworms. Please consider a donation to help UYR continue to rescue and rehabilitate other dogs with heartworms.

They not only need to have their vaccinations updated, be neutered or spayed and have extensive labs, but they also need to emotionally heal from years of neglect. For the ones like Sophie that are HW+, they will soon begin treatment which will last 4-5 months. If you have been moved by Sophie's story and her courage and resilience, please consider making a donation to UYR to cover vetting expenses and support our organization as we begin the long process of rehabilitating these precious little dogs.

INITIAL BIO 04/12/2018: Sophie is one of 25 dogs pulled by a sister rescue group from a horrendous hoarding/backyard breeding situation today. She is one of the 10 dogs that UYR was able to bring into United Yorkie Rescue. All of these dogs were terribly neglected and medically-needy and were all living in an unsafe, unsanitary and over-crowded home with very little human interaction. All of these dogs appear to be very sweet and docile, even though many of them may have hidden medical issues that we are not yet aware of.

PLEASE NOTE: Sophie had her first vet check, and sadly - she tested positive for heartworms. This means that Sophie must endure HW treatment that is very hard on any dog, and it will be even harder since Sophie and the other dogs rescued are currently all in poor physical condition. She will be in her foster home for up to 4 months while she is undergoing HW treatment. It is hoped that none of the other dogs from this backyard breeder test positive for heartworms. So far, 4 out of the 10 dogs from this neglectful situation have tested positive for heartworm disease. Prayers are appreciated and donations will be gladly accepted.

Sophie and the other precious little dogs did not come with any vetting information, and all need to be altered. They are all in poor condition, and many will need longer to recuperate from the horrible neglect than others. All have rotten mouths and most of them will likely lose all of their teeth. UYR is committed to caring for these dogs and providing them with a safe, compassionate and loving foster home, while at the same time letting them know the life ahead of them will be full of wonderful things.

UYR is reaching out to our friends, supporters and generous donors in the hopes of raising the thousands of dollars it will cost our group to make sure all of these dogs’ medical needs are taken care of, as well as their emotional needs. If you have been moved by Sophie's story and her courage and resilience, please consider making a donation to UYR to cover vetting expenses.


To date we've spent $375.25 on Sophie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $243.65 in donations.
Please donate!

Gizmo
Georgia
Gizmo

Gizmo is a 7 year old, 10 pound Yorkie mix fellow. Gizmo is being fostered in Sewanee, GA

Initial Bio 4/7/18

Gizmo just arrived in his foster home. Gizmo came from a home with young children who were too rambunctious for his personality. He became very withdrawn and would spend most of the time retreating in his cage. When the children would approach he would snap at them so Gizmo had to go and his owner reached out to UYR for help. Gizmo MUST be adopted to an ADULTS ONLY home; no exceptions. Gizmo is a very handsome dog. We believe he is a Yorkie Pomeranian mix and he has a beautiful, full and exceedingly fluffy tail. We are just getting to know him so stay tuned for updates.


To date we've spent $346.00 on Gizmo's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.
Please donate!

Henley
Georgia
Henley

Meet Henley a 4 year-old, 12-pound Schnorkie (Schnauzer-Yorkie mix). He is being fostered in Hiawassee,GA

THANK YOU TO HENLEY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Lori Reitz, Dawn Gowen, Gail Clemons

Update 4/9/18

Henley has been in his foster home for 9 months. He is one of three dogs UYR accepted from a huge puppy mill bust in rural Georgia. Like the others, Henley was badly scarred from a life of neglect and cruelty. Henley continues to make progress in small increments on Henley’s time table. He will now accept a lot of things that he would not accept when he arrived into rescue. He will now allow you to touch him while he is in his bed at night. During the day he has found his place on the sofa using his doggie stairs. If anyone else is in that spot he paces around the house until his humans come and remove his fur-siblings from “his spot” and then he is fine. His foster parents are also now allowed to pet him when he is on the sofa. He will also now allow his foster Mom to rub his belly but he stiffens up like a board. He will now take treats from his humans hands. He will also bark occasionally at his foster Dad and try to chase after him. He interacts with most of the dogs in his foster home now and is more playful. He loves using the doggie door to go outside with his foster parent’s supervision and helps his fur-brother dig holes in the yard. While none of this sounds very spectacular for most dogs, let me assure you that for Henley this is all AMAZING progress. When this boy came to us he cowered and hid and pooped every time you looked at him. He would not allow any form of human contact whatsoever. It has taken an long time to make this much progress but Henley is trying his best and slowly but surely he is learning how to be a dog. Henley is not yet ready for adoption but we think he is definitely heading in that direction.

Updated Bio 9/27/17

Henley is a 4-year-old, 12-pound Yorkie/Schnauzer mix being fostered in Hiawassee, GA. Henley has an update to share, in his own words!

Hello Everyone! It’s me, Henley! I thought my fans might enjoy hearing from me, since it has been a while since I checked in.

I’ve got to tell you, life keeps getting better and better for me. I must admit, I thought I was going to be doomed to leave my entire life as a scared, painfully shy dog that would never have a chance at a happy life. All those years in the puppy mill really did a number on me. Well, I was lucky to be saved from the puppy mill in a very large rescue operation with 300 other animals. From there I landed in a shelter where I lived for many weeks. Many of my friends were adopted from there but because of my fear I was labeled “rescue only” and for quite some time no rescues were stepping up to save me so I continued to live my life in a cage at the shelter. To most I was considered damaged goods,……..beyond fixing……“unadoptable.” Lucky for me there were people at the shelter who did not give up on me and they kept reaching out to rescue groups on my behalf. Only a few weeks ago I would just stand with my back to everyone, cowering in fear at the back of my cage. No one could touch me and if they even spoke to me I would panic and lose control of my bowels. I was one very sad, pitiful pup. Then one day, a lady came and took me from my cage and put me in a nice car and we went for a long ride. She seemed un-phased by my behavior and just talked softly to me and did her best to help me stay calm. When we arrived at the end of our journey, I was in a place like I have never seen the likes of. It was a warm, beautiful, clean, place where there was plenty of food and soft beds EVERYWHERE. There were other dogs too that all seemed so happy and they actually loved the two humans who lived with them. To my disbelief these humans were also NICE TO ME and never raised a hand to hurt me and went to all kinds of crazy lengths to make me feel SAFE. In fact, they acted like they LOVED me! They did not force me or punish me or pressure me in any way. “I will NEVER fit in here” I thought to myself. Those humans will mistreat me, or get tired of my fearful behavior and take me back to the shelter I thought to myself. Well, that was MONTHS ago and I am still here and I am starting to change my mind about what my future holds. In fact, I have made some pretty amazing progress if I do say so MYSELF! Let me share with you!

You may remember that I used to only eat my food outside when no one else was around or watching me? Well that has all changed and now I prefer to eat my meals inside the house! It is, after all a very nice house and I have my own special bowl so WHY NOT! All the other pups do it so why not me?! Speaking of the other pups…….I used to stay on the porch and just watch when my humans let my fur siblings outside to play or go potty. I longed to be part of the pack in my heart but I was just too scared to let myself join in. But I have since learned that nothing bad is going to happen to me if I join in with my fur friends and it is fun to be part of a group!

What else? Well…...I used to make my poor foster parents do this crazy ritual to get me to take a treat from their hand. It went like this: I had to be OUTSIDE and my humans had to be INSIDE and out of my sight. Then, they had stretch their arm really far so that ONLY THEIR HAND reached through the door to the outside and ALL I COULD SEE was their open hand with the treat in it. Pretty crazy, huh? Want to know something even crazier? My crazy foster parents parents actually went to ALL THAT TROUBLE just for ME!!!! Well, I decided to cut them some serious slack for being so patient with me and now I will happily take treats from their hands inside the house! But I do prefer to be fed my whole meal first and THEN get a treat for dessert!

What else? Just a short time ago I would NEVER DREAM of hopping up onto the sofa on my own and would CERTAINLY NOT tolerate a human sitting down beside me. No Way! But now foster Mom catches me napping on the soft sofa and I will even allow her to sit down next to me and pet me! This is probably my biggest accomplishment! And I’ve got to tell you, I have been really missing out by not allowing this sofa petting thing to happen a lot sooner! But I just wasn’t ready for that kind of contact until now. You see, all I really need is patience and time and of course a whole lot of love. These are all things I have never, ever had in my life until now.

So that’s my progress report! I many not seem like a lot to some but to me it is a WORLD AWAY from where I was only a few weeks ago. My foster parents tell me constantly how proud they are of me and you know what? I’m starting to feel proud of myself! And confident that I can grow into being a really great pup for a very special adopter who has tons of patience, and a heart that really wants to help a pup that many would have given up on. I still have a lot of work to do to become that happy, confident and unafraid pup that I want to be but I now know I can get there and it makes me feel so very happy! My world is not FULL OF PAWS-I-BILITY! Thanks so much for listening and please stay tuned for my next PUP-DATE. You can email my foster mom with any questions you might have about me at equusjojo@aol.com. Love, Henley

Updated Bio 8/20/2017

Sweet Henley has been with us since the end of June. He came to us from a terrible puppy mill case where over 300 animals were living in deplorable conditions. Henley was one of the lucky ones. He is young, and his physical ailments were relatively simply to address. However, poor Henley had (and still has) deep inner wounds that do not show on the outside but take the longest to heal. As adorable as he looks, poor Henley came to us very broken on the inside. In the shelter he hid and cowered in a corner shaking and lost control of his bowels every time a human approached. After 7 weeks in his foster home Henley is making slow but steady progress on many fronts.

Henley loves to be on the back porch. He insists on eating his food there even though his “eating spot” on the porch is literally only one foot from the inside. Similarly, Henley has recently begun to accept treats from his foster Mom’s hand. There must be a certain set of conditions however. Henley must be outside and Foster Mom must have her body inside and only her hand (with the treat in it) can reach outside. OK Henley, Foster Mom will comply! After all, this is progress!

Henley now sleeps in the same bedroom with his foster parents. He loves his big soft bed with a fluffy pillow topped with a furry blanket. When he is very relaxed or sleeping in his bed he will allow Foster Mom to walk over very quietly and pet his back for a very short period of time and then back off. He is now making full eye contact and responds to his name.

Henley has begun wearing a leash tether. It is only used when necessary for his safety and to get him used to the idea of a leash. Henley is by no means house-trained. He is better than when he came to us however. He is no longer pooping indoors but he will still hike his leg so his foster mom has potty pads placed under all his favorite hiking spots and that helps. He has never had any “accidents” in foster Mom’s bedroom so once he is tucked in his bed he is good for the night.

All these things, while small steps, are huge accomplishments for Henley. The most exciting development of all is you can see a tiny light in his eyes begin to shine that was never there before. He is becoming much more curious about what happens inside. He is learning from his pack and he has a best buddy Skipster who is also a Schnorkie that he emulates.

Henley is not yet ready for adoption or adoption applications yet but he is making steady progress and we are very hopeful. Henley will be the one to tell us when he is ready. When that day comes he will need a very special adopter who is willing to let him take all the time he needs to heal inside. He will need someone who has lots of patience, who will never crate him and who has at least one other good natured dog for Henley to be pals with. Please stay tuned for more updates as Henley continues on his journey towards inner healing. If you would like to donate towards Henley’s care, we would be very grateful. Just click the PayPal button below. Thank You!

Initial Bio 6/29/2017 Henley comes to UYR as the third dog we have taken in from a large GA puppy mill case. Poor Henley has been with another rescue group since April who has reached out to UYR as a breed specific group to help Henley. Henley is scared to death. He cowers and retreats and sadly loses control of his bowels any time a human tries to reach for him. Can you imagine the life Henley must have had to make him react this way? It just breaks our heart. Henleys medical needs have largely been met by the previous rescue other than a dental. He was in rough shape. Now Henleys deepest wounds are the kind not visible to the eye but sadly these are the hardest to heal. We have placed Henley in a perfect foster home where he will have numerous fur-siblings to teach him how to trust and just be a dog. We will be getting him some pharmaceutical assistance to help with his severe anxiety and a behaviorist too if needed. Henley will not be available for adoption for many weeks and honestly we can't even speculate when that will be. It's all up to Henley....he will come first....His needs, his time frame...no matter how long that takes. If you would like to partner with us to turn Henleys life around you can do that by donating towards his care. Simply click the PayPal button below and THANK YOU.


To date we've spent $600.12 on Henley's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $130.00 in donations.

Miloh is Looking for his Forever Family
Georgia
Miloh

Meet Miloh a 11 year old, 10 pound Silky Terrier . He is being fostered in Hiawassee,GA

THANK YOU TO MILOH'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Jennifer Eusner

Updated Bio 3/11/2018: Hi every PAWDY! It’s me, Miloh. It has been a while since you heard from me so here I am with an important PUP-DATE. I have had such a great winter! I got to go on a road trip in an RV to Florida with my foster Mom and Dad. It was nice there and much warmer. We even had a Christmas tree in the RV. I made new human friends but the best part was Santa found me in the RV and brought me lots of toys and goodies. You see, I am a very good boy and Santa has been paying attention. He knows I LOVE play time so he mad sure I was well stocked with toys. I am so happy Spring is right around the corner. Foster Mom got me a new Spring cut and I’m ready for warmer weather. I can wait to be outside and playing lots.

I am a really great dog. Sometimes I feel a little sad because my forever human is taking so long to find me. Foster Mom and Dad tell me “ it’s okay Miloh.....your special human is making their way towards you; we just need to be patient.”

My PAWFECT home would be one where I could have a fenced yard since I love to run around outside. I dislike being alone so a stay at home human that I can be a Velcro dog to would be great. I’m very active for 11 and I love to play fetch, tug of war, ride the 4 wheeler with foster Dad, and I LOVE WATER including baths and will hop right in on my own. I also love to go walking on my leash. When play time is done its time for me to pop into the nearest lap for cuddle and kiss time. I have great manners too! I am mostly house trained and I come right away when I am called. I’m so hopeful that my FUREVER PERSON is reading this right now and is making their way to me. I hope the Easter Bunny will skip the basket full of eggs this year and bring me my own special human for Easter instead! If you think you are my PAWFECT match please apply to adopt me today or reach out to my foster Mom for more information at equusjojo@aol.com

Updated Bio 11/24/2017: Miloh has been with us for a little over a month now and we have gotten to know him a bit better. Miloh is crazy about walks and really requires two or three a day. He has some arthritis in his back and along with his supplements and daily activity it really seems to help. He doesn’t let it slow down his ball chasing or Tug-of-war. Even though he loves to walk, a physical fence and not an electric fence is required. Miloh prefers to go to a home where he is the only dog. He has lived in a home for many years where he was the only dog and had difficulties when new dogs where introduced to him. Children must be 12 years or older. Miloh is up to date on all shots and a healthy boy. The Vet says he is in good shape besides the arthritis which hasn’t given him much difficulty so far. Miloh is 10 pounds of funded love and just wants to be your best boy! If you are retired, or work from home, or can take him to work with you, Miloh may be the one for you.

Initial Bio 10/22/2017: Miloh is an 11 years young Silky Terrier who weighs 10 pounds. He is up to date on shots and is neautered. Miloh is just a fun loving guy! Some of his favorite activities are playing fetch, tug of war, going outside to run, or for a nice walk around the neighborhood on his leash. Miloh comes when called and has the manners of a gentlemen. He is not opposed to popping into your lap for a few cuddles and kisses either. He also loves his baths and will jump into a lake if allowed! Real water boy! He even enjoys riding on a 4 wheeler with Foster Dad, when he is inside the house he is Foster Moms best boy! Miloh is housebroken but wears a belly band indoors because sometimes he can get overexcited and pee. He is familiar with a doggie door and will use one. Miloh will follow his human around the house and is very interested in what you are doing until nap time . He is a wonderfully sweet dog that loves his people. Stay tuned for more updates as Miloh settles into his foster home and they get to know him better.


To date we've spent $664.53 on Miloh's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $100.00 in donations.

Oliver IL
Illinois
Oliver

Oliver is a Yorkie mix who is 10-years-old and weighs 17 pounds. He is residing in Beach Park, IL

THANK YOU TO OLIVER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Holly Stavis, Kathryn Fore, Sheila Landis in memory of Miss Chickie Dog, Anne Faasse, Anne Faasse, Melisssa Farrington

Update Bio. 05/02/18. Hi, I’m Oliver. I’m a yorkie mix, weighing in at just about 20 pounds. They think I’m approximately 11 years old. I’m blind, have a collapsed trachea and a heart murmur, but I am still very lovable and energetic. I have coughing spells sometimes due to the collapsed trachea but mom gives me Benadryl and it helps to relax me and I don’t cough so much. Sometimes I gulp my water and that makes me cough more so mom tells me, “That’s enough Oliver” and I take a break and go back later for more.

I live in Beach Park, IL with my foster family. Two of my fur sisters like me okay but the third one gets very irritated with me because I walk on her when she is lying in her bed in the breakfast area. She is the boss-lady princess and doesn’t like to be messed with. My fur brother doesn’t like me at all and snaps at me when I even walk past him. He thinks he is a little tough guy. Mom tells him to knock it off and be nice but he doesn’t always listen to her.

Mom thinks I would be suited best for a home with probably no other dogs and no small children. Although I get along okay with my fur sisters, when mom takes me to the vet she has to keep a tight hold on me because all the pups want to be friendly and play. I can’t see them so I get defensive and want to attack.

At night, I like to sneak upstairs before everyone else goes up and I curl up on the big doggie bed beside my mom’s side of the bed. If I pretend I’m asleep, mom just lets me stay there all night and doesn’t make me go back downstairs, ha, ha. I’m a pretty good little con man. It’s okay because no matter what I do, mom tells me what a good boy I am and she loves me so much. I really am a good boy, honest.

Although I am very comfortable in my foster home, I am looking for a permanent home with my own family. If you think you might like a little fuzzy boy with lots of love to offer, please contact my foster mom at yorkiefostermom04@gmail .com or visit our website, www.unitedyorkierescue.org

Update Bio. 04/04/18. Hi I’m Oliver. I live in Beach Park, IL with my foster mom, dad, three fur sisters and a fur brother. I’m about 11 years old and because I’m a Yorkie mix, I am larger than the regular Yorkie. I am about 20 pounds which is probably a little heavier than I should be but I do love to eat. Sometimes I walk on the pups as I am blind and can’t see where I am stepping. They get upset with me so Mom thinks it would be a good idea if I went to a home where I am the only dog.

I have a very keen sense of hearing and smell. I follow mom around all over the house and manage the stairs without much difficulty. It takes me a little while because I have to feel where the steps are. I know when I run out of the carpet runner I’m at the top of the stairs and mom keeps a big fluffy doggie bed beside her nightstand that I love to sleep on. I can always find it! I go down the stairs okay too. I have to feel for the steps and I know when I run out of the carpet runner and the touch the wood floor, I’m at the bottom of the stairs. I’m actually a very smart little guy!

I love to be with my people and would make a wonderful companion for someone who is home a lot and able to let me cuddle with them on the sofa.

Mom thinks I probably wouldn’t be a good choice for a home with small children as when I get startled, I sometimes snap and small children would not understand my being blind and sudden moves or touches might startle me.

I have a collapsed trachea but my coughing is much better than it was. If I drink too much water, I start coughing so mom has to tell me, “Enough, Oliver!” I can always go back for more later though.

I am pretty aggressive around my food so mom feeds me away from everyone else. I love walks but sometimes it is hard because of being blind and if I smell other dogs, I get all excited and start coughing and try to rip up the grass. Mom usually takes me where there aren’t any other dogs. When I go to the vet, she keeps me on the short leash and tells all the other pups that I am blind so please stay away.

I am waiting patiently for my forever home. If you think you might like to adopt me, go to unitedyorkierescue.org and complete an adoption form or email my mom at yorkiefostermom04@gmail.com if you have any questions.

Update Bio. 03/07/18. Hi, I’m Oliver! I live in Beach Park, IL close to the Wisconsin border with my foster mom and dad with a fur brother and three fur sisters. I get along with the girls but my fur brother doesn’t like me too much and he will snap at me. I usually just ignore him, but I have snapped back at him to let him know he isn’t the boss.

I am about 11 years old and right at 20 pounds now, so I’m bigger than a regular Yorkie as I am a Yorkie mix. I have a collapsed trachea and I’m blind. The winter months seem to be the worst for the collapsed trachea as I cough more often. I love to be with my people and I know how to find my way upstairs to the bedroom so if mom leaves the gate open, I go upstairs on my own when I get tired at night and curl up on the big doggie bed beside the nightstand. I am pretty good at finding the water bowls too. Once I got trapped under a chair in the breakfast area and mom had to help me get out. She is going to try and get a halo for me so I don’t bump my head into things. I do pretty good getting around unless someone moves a chair or I get disorientated.

Due to being blind, mom thinks a home with no small children would be best for me. If I get startled or accidentally bumped into I sometimes will snap as I don’t know what is going on. For the most part I am very lovable and like to curl up next to my people on the sofa.

I get very aggressive around unfamiliar dogs when mom takes me to the vet so she has to keep a tight hold on me. I’m very friendly to the vet and all the nice people there. I like walks on the leash but I’m not too good at it due to being blind and also I smell other animals along the path and become aggressive. Mom tries to keep walks short as I tend to get excited and that affects my air intake with the collapsed trachea so I start coughing.

I am patiently waiting for my forever home but until then, mom says she will love me and take great care of me because I am a very special little guy and deserve only the best! You can email her at yorkiefostermom04@gmail.com if you want to know more about me.

Update Bio. 02/06/18. Hi, I’m Oliver. I’m looking for my fur-ever home. At the present time I live with my foster mom and dad, three fur sisters and a fur brother in Beach Park, IL. I get along with my fur sisters but my fur brother does not like me and steals my chews. We have had a few tangles when I try to take them back and mom has had to separate us. It is always his fault. Mom feeds me separate from everyone else because I like to eat and I don’t share my food with anyone.

I am up to date on all my vaccinations and they think I’m about 10 to 11 years old. I am blind, have a collapsed trachea, an enlarged heart and some arthritis. Mom says I’m a pretty smart little guy as I have the house memorized and can get all around and up and down the stairs very well. I like to follow my mom everywhere she goes. Mom says since I am blind my sense of hearing and sense of smell are extremely keen because I don’t miss a thing. Mom lets me lie on the sofa beside her and I give her kisses.

I’m bigger than a regular Yorkie as I’m a Yorkie mix. They aren’t sure what the mix is but I weigh in at 20 pounds and I have much longer legs than a regular Yorkie, so I stand much taller than my fur sisters and my fur brother. Mom says I remind her of Tramp from the movie, “Lady and the Tramp” as I have that “scruffy” look and the long legs, however she says I’m quite a handsome guy. Mom puts me in the bathtub and gives me a bath to make me fluffy and smell pretty. I tolerate the baths very well and I like to be brushed.

Mom thinks I should go to a home without small children as I am blind and if a small child fell on me or accidentally hurt me, I would be startled and might bite. I am very aggressive around dogs I don’t know. Mom has to keep me on the short leash when we go to the vet and she warns all the pups who want to come up to me and be friendly that I’m blind and show aggression toward the pups I don’t know. I should probably go to a home without other dogs or with dogs who are very calm and even tempered. Mom isn’t sure if I like cats or not.

I am very good about going to the patio door and waiting to be let out to go do my business. A fenced yard would be best for me as I like to sniff and wander about. I walk on a leash but get aggressive if we meet other dogs along the way. Mom says I’m a great little guy and will provide a lot of love and companionship to the right person looking for a scruffy little love bug. Please contact my foster mom at yorkiefostermom04@gmail.com if you think I might be a great furry roommate ☺

Update Bio. 11/21/17. Oliver is a 10-year old Yorkie-mix who is living with his foster family including a fur brother and three fur sisters in Beach Park, IL. He was heart worm positive when he was taken into the rescue but has received treatment and is now heart worm free. He does have an enlarged heart, a collapsed trachea which makes him cough frequently, some arthritis and he is blind. Despite all this, Oliver is a happy little boy and gets around the house quite well and he even maneuvers the stairs pretty well. He knows to go to the patio door and barks when he needs to go out and do his business.

We have had a few little incidents with him biting and snapping his fur brothers and sisters, but usually it is when he bumps into them or stumbles over them and it startles him, making him snap at them. For this reason, I believe he should be in a home with no other dogs or small children. He did bite me a couple of times, once when I stepped back and stepped on his little foot, he nipped me on the foot and once he was drinking water and his fur brother decided he was thirsty too and tried to get a drink while Oliver was drinking. As I went to push Yogi away, Oliver snapped and got my arm. Oliver is a little possessive with food and water.

Oliver loves to be with his people. He will follow me all over the house and loves to cuddle up on the sofa with me. He does like his own space, as well, so we have a large kennel with his bedding in it that we keep the door open on all the time. He goes in there on his own and will nap or chew on a rawhide.

Oliver is still looking for his furever home. If you think he might be a good fit for your household, please contact me, his foster mom at yorkiefostermom04@gmail.com and we can set up a visit.

Update 10/27/17: Oliver is a happy little fellow with a few problems. The collapsed trachea causes him to cough. He wants to gulp water but we have to slow him down or he coughs even more. Walks are always enjoyable for Oliver but we try to keep them short because of his arthritis and enlarged heart. Also, he tends to get excited outdoors sniffing scents of other dogs and probably coyotes as we live in an area where they abundant. When Oliver gets excited, he coughs more. Hydrocodone seems to help some but we’ve had good results with children’s Benadryl as it calms him down and keeps him from coughing so much.

Being blind has not really been much of an obstacle for Oliver as he finds his way all over the house. He loves to be with his people and will follow me upstairs and back down if I don’t close the gate to keep him the main level of the house.

He will snap if he gets startled and he has snapped at his foster brother and bit one of his sisters when they walked too close to him and startled him. For the most part he gets along very well with the other dogs in the household. Due to the blindness, I would suggest that he go to a home with no small children or other pets.

We had the opportunity to take Oliver camping over the summer. He is a great little camper and travels very well. We took his kennel for him to sleep in at night and he felt right at home in the travel trailer. Of course he had to find the water bowl and get himself acclimated to his new surroundings, but he adjusted very well.

Oliver loves to stretch out on the sofa next us. He isn’t able to get up there on his own so we have to lift him. I bought a set of stairs but he doesn’t feel comfortable using them, probably because he can’t see exactly what they are and understand the purpose.

Oliver is a great little boy and is still waiting for his forever home. He is precious!

Update Bio. 08/22/17. Oliver is a happy little guy, despite the problems with his blindness and collapsed trachea. He barks at strange noises or noises he has not heard before. We have a bug zapper outside the patio fence, and he goes nuts at night when it is busy zapping bugs.

He gets along okay with his fur sisters, for the most part. He and Lexi had little episode a while back and he bit her. He does not like his fur brother and his fur brother, Yogi, does not like him. If Oliver bumps into Yogi, he will snap. They pretty much stay at opposite ends of the kitchen/breakfast area. Due to Oliver being blind, I highly suggest that he go to a home with no small children or other dogs. As far as I know, he has never been around cats.

I had Oliver tested for thyroid problems, Cushings disease and diabetes because of the excessive amount of water he drinks. All came back negative, thank goodness. I guess he is just a really thirsty little guy. We do have to tell him to stop or he will stand there and empty the water bowl and then throw up. We say, “Oliver, enough!” and he stops drinking and goes to his bed. He is on hydrocodone which helps with the coughing spells he has with the collapsed trachea. He also eats grain free food and treats.

Oliver finds his way around the house but will bump into things if they are out of place. He goes to the glass sliding door and wants out to do his business. He manages steps without too much difficulty.

He likes to be with his people and will follow. I’m not sure if he follows the scent or if it is his keen sense of hearing. He definitely knows the sound of the “treat jar” and is there in a flash.

Oliver is still patiently waiting for his furever family. If you are interested in this lovable, little man, just follow the link below to complete an application.

Update Bio. 07/22/17. Oliver lives with his foster family in Beach Park, IL. He is looking for a home, preferably with adults only, since he is blind and will sometimes snap if startled. Lying on the sofa next his person is one of his favorite activities. He is a very loving little guy.

He has a collapsed trachea and coughs if he gets excited or is very active. Oliver likes to go for walks but we keep them short so he doesn't have problems coughing from his collapsed trachea.

Oliver is very aggressive with his food bowl, so for that reason, he eats away from the other fur babies in the house. It might be best if he were an only dog, as he will bump into or stumble over the other dogs since he is blind and cannot see them.

The vet’s estimate is that Oliver is about 10 years old. He is a little bigger than a regular Yorkie, as he is a Yorkie mix. We aren’t sure what the mix is but more than likely some type of terrier. He is about 16 pounds, which is about the maximum weight he should be since the heavier he is, the harder it is for him to breathe. He does love to eat, though, and will try to clean out all the other bowls. H also likes to hang out in the kitchen in case foster mom drops some food while preparing his dinner.

Oliver is currently undergoing tests due to excessive water drinking, urination, weight gain and lethargy. He is up three pounds from his vet visit in December to 18.8 pounds, even though we have cut back a little on his food. Diabetes has been ruled out, as well as Cushings. They are testing for thyroid problems. The vet said the lethargy could be cause from his heart but is unable to explain the excessive water drinking and urination. Thus far, his liver and kidney functions are normal.I would like to get him as well as possible before letting him go to his forever home, so he is waiting patiently. Stay tuned for information on Oliver.

Update bio. 06/30/17. Oliver is living with his foster family in Beach Park, IL. He is approximately 10 years old and about 15 pounds. Although he still has coughing spells due to the collapsed trachea, he seems to be coughing less in the warmer months than he was in the winter.

Although Oliver is blind, he knows the layout of the house and gets around well.

We have another little male, Yogi, who does not like Oliver too well, so when Oliver comes near his bed, Yogi will snap at him. I try to keep the two of them apart as much as possible.

Oliver will snap when he is startled and for this reason, I am recommending that he go to an all adult home or a home with older children.

Oliver is very lovable and likes attention. He loves to sleep out on the patio on the loveseat beside me. He does have issues with arthritis but daily doses of glucosamine seem to help. He can maneuver steps quite well despite being blind and having arthritis.

He is patiently waiting for his furever home. If you are interested in adopting Oliver, just follow the link below to be taken to the application.

Updated Bio 5-30-17. Oliver is still residing with his foster family in Beach Park, IL. We believe he is either mostly blind now, or totally blind. He gets around but does bump into things. He can maneuver around the house fairly well most of the time and depends on his sense of hearing and smell. He follows me every place I go.

Because the weather is nice and he is outdoors more, he seems to be breathing a little better due to the collapsed trachea. He is on hydrocodone and Benadryl. Both seem to relax him and he doesn’t cough quite as much.

Oliver does not get along with his brother, probably because Yogi was formerly an “only child” and he is very possessive with his toys and his bed. When Oliver gets near, Yogi snaps at him and Oliver will snap back. Lexi, Oliver’s sister seems to be losing her patience with Oliver. He will bump into her and she will snap at him. We’ve had no dog fights but due to the constant snapping, I would highly recommend that Oliver go to a home with no other dogs or small children.

Oliver loves his walks but we don’t go too far as he has arthritis and gets a little stiff and sore. He is on daily doses of glucosamine which helps.

He is a happy little dog, very lovable and likes to give kisses. He wants to be with his people and will snuggle up beside me on the sofa. He is patiently waiting for his forever home. If you res interested in adopting Oliver, please follow the link below to be taken to the application.

Bio. 04/15/17. Oliver, to the best of our knowledge is about 10 years old now. He is looking forward to being outdoors more since the weather is getting warmer. He loves the fresh air and sunshine. He sits out on the patio with his nose in the air, sniffing all the scents and guarding his home from any intruders, (geese and ducks) by barking when he hears them. He struggles with the collapsed trachea, some arthritis and the blindness. Despite being blind, he has amazing hearing which helps him get around very well. I also think he memorizes where things are in the house. On occasion he will bump into the other dogs and his instant reflex is to snap, although he has never bitten. The other dogs realize his handicap and seem to accommodate him by just moving out of his way. He is on hydrocodone for the collapsed trachea. It seems to relax him so he can sleep without coughing so much.

Oliver is a great little dog and would make a wonderful constant companion. He really likes to be with his people and follows me all over the house, even up and down the stairs. He loves sprawling out on the sofa beside me and will stay there as long as I do. He also loves to be brushed. I tell him what a handsome guy he is and how lucky we are to have him with us. As loveable as he is, a home without small children or other dogs would probably be best. Oliver gets along well with our dogs, but when we take him out to the vet or places where he doesn’t know the dogs, he gets very defensive and wants to protect us. Once he learns the other dogs in the household he will probably be fine, but I still think maybe a home with no other dogs would be best for him. He needs a fenced yard as well. He can be taken out on a leash but he likes the freedom to romp around the fenced back yard.

Oliver is a happy, little guy and is patiently waiting for his forever home. If you would like more information or how to go about adopting this little guy, please go to our website, unitedyorkierescue.org and complete an adoption application or email his foster mom at yorkiefostermom04@gmail.com

Update Bio. 03/15/17. Oliver is a whole year older now and is patiently waiting for his forever family/home. He was all ready for spring, and then Mr. Winter decided he wasn’t finished with us and we ended up with two feet of snow on the fenced patio. Oliver loves to be outdoors, so this has put a hamper on things as he really enjoyed some of the 60 and 70 degree weather we experienced back in February.

The collapsed trachea is an ongoing problem with little Oliver. He has good days and then some not so good. The hydrocodone seems to relax him and he sleeps more which causes him to cough less; however, his super hearing doesn’t miss a thing. I try to let him sleep and tip toe upstairs, but when I turn around, he is right behind me. He certainly likes to be with his people! He loves to stretch out on the sofa next to me and sleep when I watch a movie.

Oliver will still snap if one of the other dogs is standing in his path and bumps into them. I don’t feel this is any type of aggression and he has never bitten. It seems it is more of a reflex instinct, as he is blind and doesn’t know what or who he bumped into. The other dogs are pretty good to move out of his way when they see him coming their way. Oliver loves to eat and is doing well on his grain-free food with pumpkin flakes sprinkled over the top.

We’re looking forward to warm days out on the patio once the snow melts. He loves to be out in the fresh air as he seems to be able to breathe better standing outside with his nose up in the air. He loves walks but we’ve had to limit the length as he starts coughing and has some trouble breathing if we walk too far.

Oliver is a bundle of love and affection patiently waiting for his forever home. Please contact his foster mom at yorkiefostermom04@gmail.com if you would like to schedule a visit with this little guy!

Update Bio. 02/15/17. Oliver is a very happy, little guy and loves to give kisses, despite being blind and having problems with his trachea. Morning and evening walks have been shorter since he tires out easily, but he loves to be outdoors and will sometimes meander around the fenced patio for 15 minutes at a time. We are going back to the vet next week to hopefully get another medication to help him breathe better.

Oliver knows the layout of our house and gets around very well for not being able to see. He also manages the stairs very well. His hearing is exceptional! I can tiptoe past him sleeping in his bed and he immediately jumps up and follows me. He loves to be with his people!

Oliver is waiting for his forever home. He has lots of love to give and he would is eager to be your constant companion 💕

If you are interested in adopting this handsome fellow, just follow the link below to complete the application.

Update Bio. 01/15/17. Oliver is doing well. Although his vision seems to have deteriorated, he gets around great in the house most if the time. I feel his ability to navigate the house is due to his memorization of the layout. Coughing and hacking have increased, somewhat, due to the collapsed trachea, as well as the heart problems. He seems to take things in stride, and is such a happy little guy! He is also doing very well on his grain free diet. I bought him some grain free treats because he is a great little guy and deserves his occasional treat. He does love to eat!

Oliver loves to snuggle up with his people on the sofa. He also loves to give kisses. His sense of hearing is remarkable! If he is sleeping and I tiptoe around him to go upstairs, I rarely get to the bottom of the stairs before he is right behind me. He follows me all over the house! Not bad for a little guy who is pretty much blind!

Oliver is patiently waiting for his forever home with lots of love. He will make a wonderful companion for some lucky person/persons! If you feel this person/persons is you, just follow the link below to complete an application.

Update Bio. 12-18-16. Oliver is doing very well and waiting patiently for his forever home. He is a very lovable little guy, but I still feel he would do better in a home without small children. We know he is blind in the one eye and has limited vision in the other but he does quite well maneuvering around things unless we move a chair or one of the other dogs is standing in his path. He does bump into things frequently. He follows me all over the house and manages to get up and down the stairs fairly well.

Walks have been shorter recently due to high winds, bitter cold and blowing snow, but he still enjoys them. When we get his leash out, he gets all excited and stands by the door waiting to go out. We run out, do our business and run back inside.

I had him at the vet for a vaccination and asked the vet to test him for diabetes because he seemed to be drinking a lot of water, but great news! No diabetes! We have him on food that agrees with his digestive system and I bought special grain free treats that he loves but we limit because he would go through the whole bag if he had his way. This boy loves to eat!

Oliver is a happy little guy and is waiting for his loving forever home. He will provide unconditional love, companionship and much happiness!

Update Bio. 11-15-16. Oliver is adjusting well to his new foster home in Beach Park, IL. He goes for walks in the mornings and evenings and gets so excited when we put the harness and leash on him. We don’t go for long walks since he does have some arthritis, but he does enjoy getting out and sniffing all the scents and walking on the grass on the boulevard between the sidewalk and the street and kicking up his feet.

For being blind in one eye and having limited vision in the other, Oliver does fairly well going up and down the stairs. He is able to go up much better than coming down due to depth perception, which seems to be off but he stretches his leg out to feel the next step below him. As Oliver ages, along with the arthritis and limited vision, a home without stairs might be better suited for him.

Oliver loves to cuddle up on the sofa and be next to his people. He is a very sweet and lovable little guy and will follow you wherever you go. He loves to be petted and have his ears and neck rubbed, but he does startle easily if something comes up on his blind side. I feel a home with adults or older children might be better for him, as they would understand his vision problems.

At the present time, Oliver is on a grain free diet and doing very well. This adorable little guy is looking for his forever home. If you are searching for a loyal, lovable little companion to take walks and curl up on the sofa with, Oliver is your guy! If you are interested in adopting Oliver, follow the link below to complete an application for adoption.

Update Bio. 10/15/16: Oliver is still waiting for his perfect, forever home. He is a very sweet, senior and would do well in just about any home. He'd love to be an only dog with a retired or stay at home person or family, but also gets along with respectful children. He does not need a fenced in a yard, as he doesn't like to be outside alone, and loves going on walks. Oliver would really love a home of his own, so contact his foster mom with any questions! To complete an application for adoption, follow the link below to be taken to the UYR site.

Update Bio. 9/19/16 - Oliver is still doing great in his foster home and was recently peremptorily tested again for heartworms. He tested very faintly positive, but the vet said this is not uncommon for dogs that has previously been as strong positive as Oliver was. The vet recommends waiting until t 6 months after his completed treatment (which would be the beginning of December) and retesting again. We are hoping by then all the former signs of the heartworms in Oliver's system will be completely gone. Until then, he will simply stay on Heartworm preventative monthly, and we will keep hoping for a loving home he can retire in. He may be considered a "senior", but he is actually quite active, especially when taken on walks and out in the yard with other dogs. Inside the house, he prefers to be much more lazy and sleeps most of the time, except when ambling around to follow you from room to room. We are accepting applications on Oliver now, and would consider letting him go to a home with a great vet reference. Please do not hesitate to contact his foster mom with any questions.

Update 8/18/16: Oliver continues to do well since his heartworm treatments. He has been happy and looking forward to his recheck appointment in September to verify that his heartworm disease has been cured. Watch for more on Oliver in September.

Update Bio: 7/5/16 – It’s Oliver again, and I hope everyone had a happy 4th of July! I barked at all the fireworks I could hear, which was not as much fun for everyone else in the house, but was great fun for me!! It is good that I’m not afraid of loud noises though. So I’ve been doing really well since I had my heartworm treatment. I’m feeling great, and much more active now. In fact, it’s kind of hard for foster mom to get good pictures of me because my butt is always wiggling and moving! But I recently got a new haircut since it’s so hot out. I look very dapper, so she wanted to put up some new pictures of me happy and smiling now that I’m feeling better. That missing patch of hair you see on my back is where I had to be shaved for my heartworm injections but don’t worry, it will grow back. Foster mom says I’m still super handsome! Based on my current health situation, we are pretty sure the heartworms are all gone, but I will need a test in September to confirm that. It’s not a very expensive test, but we will need to be sure my adopters are willing to getting this test. It’s a very important test, as is keeping me on heartworm preventative. I never want to go through that awful treatment again! I am very sweet, love to snuggle, enjoy walks and being a couch potato. I would really love a furever home of my own. Please fill out an application to adopt me, or contact my foster mom with any questions you might have, and she will respond asap! Thanks for visiting! Love, Oliver

Update Bio 6/4/16: Oliver here, just wanting to update everyone on how I'm doing. I just had my 2nd and 3rd shots to kill the nasty heartworms I had. It was really hard going through this treatment and I don't ever want to do it again! The heartworms are still dying off so I'm can't go to a new home just yet. I'm in recovery and will have to be re-tested to make sure they all die, but I wanted everyone to know that I'm doing ok and the vet and my foster mom are taking great care of me. To remind everyone, I am totally house trained and crate trained, although I have spent enough time in my crate during this treatment and really don't want to be in there anymore. I have limited vision, but I get around really well and learn my surroundings quickly. I do have some arthritis but I can do a couple of stairs up and down into the yard or patio. I wouldn't be able to do them up and down in a second story house though. I'm pretty chill and since I'm older I just need a place where I can hang out, wander around the yard and house, and sleep. I am up to date on all my shots, medications, and also neutered. If you would like to give me a loving home when my treatment is complete, please fill out an application or contact my foster mom at her email below if you have any questions. She'd be more than happy to talk to you about the process and my treatment!

Initial Bio 5/16/16: Hi everyone! My name is Oliver and I am being fostered in Shiloh, IL. I'm a Yorkie mix, estimated to be about 9 years old. I weigh 17 lbs., and I could stand to lose a little weight. I am a very lucky boy because I was in a shelter for 2 months, in a rural farming community, when UYR pulled me because they heard I had medical issues. It turns out I'm heartworm positive and never received medical treatment for my condition, which is very serious! I had a severe case of kennel cough, which went away after being treated with antibiotics, although I still have a slight cough from the heartworms. I also have compromised eye sight (cataracts) and arthritis, which makes it difficult for me to climb stairs. I know my situation sounds sad, but I'm very happy to be in a loving foster home and away from my old life. My foster mom says I'm a sweet boy and a tough cookie. There are only a few instances when I get to take a break from my crate: one is when I get to go outside to potty. Foster mom puts me on a leash and we walk to the end of the driveway and back. The other time is when she carries me up the stairs and I lay in her crafting room while she works. Sometimes I bump into things, but I am learning how to navigate my new surroundings, so this scenario is only on rare occasions. My favorite times are when foster mom gives me scratches while I lay in my crate. Also, I do not mind children or other dogs, but cats are another story! My most pressing issue is that I am heartworm positive, which has quite the recovery process. At first I was on pills, also known as the slow-kill method. After several months of this treatment, an ultrasound revealed that it was not effective and the worms were "alive and kicking". I went to see a new vet, who just completed a thesis on heartworm, so I am in really good hands. He began a new treatment that requires injections. I had my first one last week and I will receive the next 2 injections next month. This could be a long process and I cannot be adopted until the vet gives me the green light, but if you would like to apply in advance to be considered to adopt me, please fill out an application on our website www.uyr.us. Also, my treatment is very expensive, so please consider donating to my vet care and stayed tuned for progress updates! Love, Oliver

Maggie May
Indiana
Maggie May

Meet the gorgeous Maggie May. Maggie May is a 4 year old, 4.5 lb. little girl being fostered in Greenfield, IN. She needs an MRI to diagnose a neurological issue and won't be available for adoption for 2-3 months until we address the cause of her problem. Maggie May cannot be adopted outside the state of Indiana.

THANK YOU TO MAGGIE MAY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Denise Fantetti, Darlene Schultz, Sandra Wendt, Raygan Stone, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Stephanie Groves, Stephanie Groves, Gail Sherman, Melissa Chiera, Karry Rogers, Angie Cagle, Sandra Wendt, Rebecca Root, Noreen Deckard

Update Bio. 04/11/18. Hi. Maggie May and I thought we would give you an update on how she is going doing. We just returned from spending the winter in the sunny south. After the neuro tests, it was determined that she has a lesion on the left side of her brain. We are still adjusting her medication.

She also saw a dentist and had 10 rotted teeth removed and a good cleaning. Maggie May could not chew her food and she regurgitated everything she ate. She now is on a diet of soft food. She is a big eater and gaining her weight back.

Oh yes, she has a new haircut, which makes it easier on her, because she doesn’t like the Groomer.

Maggie May is a special needs girl, and probably always will be. She is beginning to show more of her personality to us.

We will check in again soon.

Updated Bio: 1/13/17. Maggie May is doing well in her foster home. She isn’t a cuddly little girl yet, but she does love to sit and have rubs on her head and back. She loves dinner time, napping, riding in the car and likes to keep her fur brother and sister in line. She enjoys exploring the house and follows her foster mom and dad around everywhere. She certainly does not enjoy going outside in this cold Indiana weather.

Maggie May has had a busy first 30 days in foster care. She came to UYR with information of having a fall in January 2017. Upon receiving her original vet records, we found that this sweet little girl has many other issues and no testing was done. Maggie May circles constantly only to the left, and may have diminished sight in her right eye. She has regurgitation issues and has been taken off hard kibble and put on soft, canned, pate food. This has been a temporary solution to her eatingsuccessfully. Maggie May has weakness in her hind legs, and loses her balance frequently. Maggie saw the dogtor and is scheduled for a dental and several extractions on January 17.

We had three specialty consults this week, and she spent the night at the hospital. She is scheduled for an MRI and spinal tap on January 24, to see exactly what neurological issues she has. We also had a consultation with an orthopedic doctor who believes that she has luxating patellas and possibly a torn ACL in her right leg. These issues will be addressed at a later date. Maggie May also met with an internist regarding her digestive issues, and will have an xray and other tests in the future.

We visited the groomer this week and had her hair shortened to make care easier on her. She did not like the grooming process at all.

We are so thankful that she was rescued when she was, so that we can provide the care and medical attention that she so desperately needs. Maggie May’s testing will be very expensive, but will help her to be healthy, pain free and hopefully ready for her furever family. If your heart leads you to donate to help defray the very high costs of her tests and treatments, it would so greatly be appreciated. Just a few dollars from a lot of people will help her. If you cannot donate, please say a little prayer for her.

It has been determined that when Maggie May is ready to be adopted she will only be adopted in the Indiana, to a pet free, adult only home.

Initial Bio. 12/15/17. Please welcome sweet Maggie May. She has had her entire world turned upside down when she was surrendered by her original owner. Maggie is 4 years, 9 months old and weighs 4.5 lbs. She is very timid and shy, and appears to be potty trained. We don't know a lot about her as she has only been with her foster mom for only 24 hrs. She will have her vet check appointment the first of next week. We do know that she had a fall a few months ago and is still on a medication. She is up-to-date with her shots and she has been micro-chipped and spayed. It will be hard not to fall in love with this little angel.

Danny Boy

Meet the handsome Danny Boy who is 3 years old, 10 pounds and is being fostered in Urbandale, IA. Danny has some behaviors we are working to correct, and he will not be ready for adoption until Spring.

03/18/18. Danny is still working on his need to be overly protective of his home and family, however he is making progress. He continues to improve daily, and will make a wonderful pet when he is fully trained.

01/03/17. Update Bio. Danny is still learning how to behave around new people. He still struggles with his desire to protect his foster mommy. This behavior has greatly improved since Christmas Day.

Danny is a very loving boy who needs a family who understands his need to feel safe around new people.

He needs more work in this area, but hopefully in a few months, will be ready to start meeting families interested in adopting him.

12/20/2017. Initial Bio. Danny is learning how to behave around people. This process will take several months to insure he doesn’t revert back to aggressive behaviors. When he is placed, it must be within 10 miles of Urbandale, Iowa. No exceptions. Danny is very very loving towards one or two people that he becomes attached to. He needs a family that understands how to be leaders or poor Danny feels it’s his job to aggressively protect his family.

Updates will be given monthly; although, Danny won’t be placed until late spring at the earliest.

Sincerely, Foster Mom

Update 3/16/18

Isabella Grace is doing beautifully in rescue and good luck is definitely on her side. We have wonderful news to report. Isabella's tumor biopsy came back NEGATIVE for CANCER! This is such amazing news and better than we dared hope for. She was able to have her much needed spay and also a dental during which she lost several badly decayed teeth. The huge piles of excess skin on her rump have turned out to be just scar tissue from long term neglect, flea dermatitis and untreated skin infections. The tissue has already shrunk by half and she looks like a new dog. Not only that but she acts like a new dog too. She is running around dolling out love and kisses to humans and dogs alike. We believe she is saying "Thank You" to everyone who supported her with donations, sharing of her story and positive thoughts and prayers. Her future is beginning to look so much brighter than we dared to hope! She still needs the surgery to remove her mammary tumors. This will likely need to be done in two separate procedures, one side at a time. She will see the Vet next week to have her spay and biopsy sutures removed and we will have a better idea of what is next and when. Please consider donating towards this sweet girl who is such a fighter and has new hope in humans and life. Thank You!

Initial Bio 2/24/18 Just when we think we’ve seen it all……we find out that we have not. This precious soul was found running down a country road. She can’t talk to us and tell us what her former life was but it must have been beyond terrible. How else is any dog ever happy to be apprehended by animal control? She practically leapt into their arms because whatever was to come next (even euthanasia) was certain to be better than what came before. These photos are graphic. They are, in our opinion….also disgusting. This sweet girl did not get like this on her own. We will likely never know the particulars, and perhaps that is the only blessing here because there is only so much sadness the human heart can handle. She is going to need a MOUNTAIN of care……she has been seen by the general Vet and just about has everything medically wrong with her a dog can have. And we don’t even know for sure what that mess of a rear end is but is will require expensive specialist care. The conditions we do know about are flea infestation, severe bacterial/fungal/yeast infections over her entire body, a mouth full of rotten teeth with severe infection that will likely all need to be pulled. Her lab tests and exam indicated systemic infection and will require long term treatment with multiple antibiotics. This pitiful soul has been bred to death (almost literally) and her chest is full of mammary tumors on both sides. The tumors are large and she has a tumor in her axillary area too. We will need radiographs and additional testing to determine if they are malignant and/or metastasized; she is going to need specialist surgery if that is even an option. Her ears are so infected she may have permanent hearing loss. In truth, we don’t know what amount to make her fundraiser because we can’t even guestimate what her total veterinary bill will be. But we have to start somewhere and her somewhere is now.

This shy little girl whom we have affectionately name Isabella Grace is the very symbol of who we are, why we exist and what we hope to achieve. With your support will transform this sweet soul into the best version of herself that she can be and alleviate as much of her suffering as is humanly possible. Please help us by donating whatever you can! To do so, please click the PayPal button below. We will keep you updated on her progress as we learn more. Thank you ….stay tuned.

Sweet,beautiful Lexie
Kentucky
Lexie

Lexie is an 8-9 (estimated) year-old, 9-pound Yorkie girl being fostered in Elizabethtown, KY.

THANK YOU TO LEXIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Bonnie Vaupel, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Teresa Beament, Tony Heath, Irene and Peter Havas in memory of Buddy, Vanessa and Pepe, Marciela Berner

Updated Bio 1/18/18:1/17/2018:

Lexi has finished the first phase of the heartworm treatment. She is scheduled for her first injection on February 2. Secretly, foster Mom is worried about trying to keep her activity down to an absolute minimum once she has the injections.

With all the snow we have had here lately, foster Mom has discovered that Lexi is not to keen on the wet and cold snow. She is so cute ... she lifts her legs as if she is going to be frozen on spot. She is getting better about going potty. She is slowly starting to use the puppy pad more when foster parents are at work. She has a subtle signal to let us know she needs to go out, so foster parents aren’t always picking up on it. Foster Mom is wondering if she could be trained to ring a bell or bark as we need a more obvious potty signal.

Lexi is a sweet, loving girl, but there are signs that she has been abused. She cowers when we try to pick her up and has snapped at us when scared. We are trying to discern what in our behavior has caused this sweet girl to be fearful. On the other hand, she absolutely loves squeaky toys. As a Christmas gift, foster mom received three dragons. Lexi was in Doggy Play Paradise. She hoarded the toys from her foster siblings and played and played with them, until she managed to destroy the squeaky—apparently the object of the play.

Lexi loves to sit on foster Mom’s lap, or at least next to her, and she enjoys sleeping in our bed.

12/4/17 Initial Bio

Sweet Lexie landed in a shelter after being picked up as a stray by animal control. Sadly, this precious girl has tested positive for heart worm disease and must now undergo the unpleasant and lengthy treatment to rid her tiny body of the organism that would destroy it. For this reason, Lexie will not be adoptable until spring of 2018. She is such a sweet girl and deserves better than she has known. She is settling in well in her foster home and getting along nicely with her fur-siblings. So far she is proving to be a sweet, smart and loving little girl with the most ADORABLE EARS!

Max

Max

Meet Max. Max is a 6-year-old, 16 pound Yorkie boy residing in MA.

Update bio. 03/09/18. Max here, Tigger's younger brother. I weigh 15 lbs. I also spent the day at the Vet and am now up to date with vaccines, teeth cleaning and neuter. The Vet was so amazed at our teeth and how good they look, cause they say us Yorkies are known to have difficulty with healthy gums and teeth. I had to wear the "cone of shame" much longer than Tigger, I just couldn't leave that ouchy alone. Did you know I can go outside when ever I want! FM has a big fenced in yard that I just love, I can run run run. I let FM know when I have to potty, she says I'm such a good boy. I love to play with my brother Tigger. We run and wrestle with each other and play tug of war with "Tigger pull toy", FM thinks it so funny when I pull Tigger across the tile floor when we play with the pull toy. Well FM is cutting up Apples, and I love them.

Please consider adopting 2 cute boys with a lot of personality.

Initial Bio. 02/15/18. Hi I'm Max, I can with my brother from another mother, Tigger. The ride was a long one but I took a couple of naps along the way. I take a little while to warm up to people. This is the first time I've been away so I'm a little confused and anxious. FM and FD has promised to take good care of me and they said they will find the right loving family that will take care of me furever. I love, love, love playing outside, FM has a big fenced in yard that I can roam around and check out all the smells. Well i'll bark at ya later, gotta run.

THANK YOU TO TIGGER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Trula Montgomery

Update Bio. 03/09/18. Tigger here. I've settled in MA. I had a Vet visit that lasted all day. I got my vaccines, teeth cleaned and neuter. I had to wear this collar thing for days. FM would laugh at me because every time she would put it on me, I didn't think I could move and would bark till she picked me up. So glad that is over. The weather here in MA. has been crazy. We've played in the snow and gone on nice walks in 60 degree weather. The best walk was at the beach; The smells there were amazing. I'm 5.5 lbs and would benefit from a fenced in yard and respectful children, I love FM's grandchildren, they play tug of war with my little Tigger toy. I'm ready to move on with a new family and my brother.

Initial Bio. 02/15/18. Hi I'm Tigger, I made a long trip from NY to MA on Sunday, I looked out the window most of the ride but it was dark and rainy and my FM and FD was wondering what I could see, BOL. I'm not sure why I'm in this new place, they say I'm an owner surrender. I had a rough first night but my second day/night was much better. I have a pack to hang around with and a big yard, thats fun. I'm 8 y/o and about 7-8 lbs., I'm spunky, like to play with a small tennis ball and tug of war. I also love to be held.

Kermit
Ohio
Kermit

Kermit is a sweet 8 year old, 10 pound girl (yes girl :-) who is being fostered in Cleveland, OH.

THANK YOU TO KERMIT'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Trula Montgomery

Updated Bio. 01/22/18. Meet Kermit. She is a GIRL and 8 years old. Her owner was unable to take care of her any longer do to a illness. She is getting along well with my dogs but does not get along well with big dogs. I think she will do well in a single dog home with NO small animals (birds, rabbits, etc.) She loves kids. When Kermit came to use she had no hair on her back. We have changed her food ( NUTRO LID ) and we think that might have been the issue but we are still working on making sure of the reason why all the hair loss. She is scheduled for a dental on February 12th. She has severe anxiety, so it would be great for her to go to a home where someone is home with her for the day and night. She is not 100% potty trained so we are working on that. She sleeps in bed with us for most of the night, but we do find her sometimes sleeping with our 15 year old dog all cuddled up. We will update you on her progress with the hair loss.

Initial Bio. 1/3/18. Sweet Kermit came into rescue on January 2. She has some health issues that we are trying to address. She had no hair on her back and her stomach was bloated. Her foster mom switched to a grain-free limited ingredient dog food and the bloating is gone and her hair is growing back. She saw the vet today and has been put on an antihistamine/steroid and antibiotic which hopefully will clear up her remaining skin problems. She'll have bloodwork done and once all looks good with that, we'll proceed with vaccinations. Sweet Kermit does have some anxiety issues which we hope will improve once she has settled into foster care.


To date we've spent $576.55 on Kermit's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $20.00 in donations.

Willy
Pennsylvania
Willy

Willy is an 11 pound, 7-8 year old Silky Terrier being fostered in York, PA.

THANK YOU TO WILLY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Joan McDermott, Joan McDermott

Update Bio. 3/30/18: Willy visited the vet on Wednesday. Great news…he is heart worm and lyme negative! In addition, his pre-surgery blood work was normal and his teeth are in great shape! Willy made sure to say hi and give kisses to everyone in the office. He was a big hit! I understand why his surrendering family said he was the neighborhood ambassador. Willy loves everyone!

The ideal family for Willy will be a mom or dad that is home most of the time. Willy loves to be with his human. In addition, I think it’s important for Willy to have a fur sibling. I saw him exchanging kisses with my Yorkie, Gracie, this morning. Gracie has never shown any affection towards any foster that we’ve had. Willy will need a family that is willing to take him for a walk daily, cuddle him, receive tons of kisses, and love him unconditionally! If you feel that Willy would be the perfect addition for your family, please submit an application on our website.

3/26/18 Initial Bio: Willy is an approximately 8 year old, very sweet Silky Terrier weighing around 11 pounds. Willy arrived in his foster home on March 24th after being surrendered by his family. The family was facing eviction and even though they loved Willy, surrendering him to UYR was their only option. While Willy was loved, he has been neglected in regards to vetting. Willy will need all his vaccinations along with being neutered before he can be adopted.

Here is what we know so far, Willy loves everyone! Within a couple of minutes of meeting Willy, he was already giving foster mom kisses. He rides well in a car and loves to go for a walk. Willy is leash and harness trained. He gets along with all his foster siblings (large and small, dogs and cats) and is already a member of the pack. Willy loves to play fetch and listens well. He does not have any food aggression and sits patiently until his bowl is placed in front of him. Willy lets you know when he has to go outside to do his business. He is an all-around great little fella! Please email foster mom with any questions. An update will be provided after his vet appointment, but by all appearances, Willy is a healthy and happy, sweet little boy!


To date we've spent $734.94 on Willy's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $15.00 in donations.

Update 4/27/18

Our little guy is doing wonderful !! Putting weight on his leg and actually using it to walk. The only difficult part is keeping this active, fun, playful precious boy still !!! He is on "bed rest" as per doctors orders so his leg can properly heal. Our next appt to see the surgeon is May 9th. We will get x-rays to see how the bone is healing and fingers crossed schedule to get is "fixator" removed. Thank you for your continued support and for keeping BB in your thoughts and well wishes...

Update 03/21/18

Today was Binkley Buttons one week follow up appointment at Blue Pearl Vet Specialist and things are going wonderful –

Bandages were removed and x-rays reviewed with the surgeon, Dr. Au. He shared that they actually used bone from a donor for our little guy, due to the infection and bone deterioration that had already set in. The red circle in the x-ray picture shows where donors bone fragments were used. The -xray also shows the extend of the external fixator that was put in place.

So as per Doctors order, 8 weeks of crate rest, continued medications 3 times daily, daily cleaning to ensure no external infection and lots of love. Scheduled follow up appt in 2 weeks. We can not wait to see the obstacles this special little guy will overcome !

If you would like to donate to Binkley's medical expenses please click on the link "DONATE" below !

Initial Bio 3/14/18: Little “Buttons” was hit by a car and taken in for emergency care. The Vet said his leg had been badly fractured and several puncture wounds suggested he was hit by a car or possibly attacked by a larger animal. He was initially placed on pain medication and antibiotics. UYR was asked to step in to help this sweet boy to ensure he received the best care possible.

We immediately took him to a specialist and were presented with two options for his leg. The first option is amputation and he would probably be fine as a little tripod. However, being young the surgeon feels that if we act quickly he can repair his leg with a plate and screws to give Buttons a great chance to live happily as a 4-legged dog.

So with additional consultation we have decided to repair his leg, which will be costly, and to do so we must act quickly. We were able to get him schedule for his surgery TOMORROW. We are stepping out in faith for Binkley Buttons and we know you will help us! For donations please click on the DONATE button below. No amount is too small - Thank You!

Mary Mills and Teddy

4/21/18 Meet adorable little Emmie Kate !!

This pint size ball of energy lets nothing slow her down, not even the fact that she is a “tripawd”. We do not know the circumstances of her missing her front leg, but after being seen at the Vet Clinic yesterday, they suggested it happened at a young age, because she has absolutely no problem moving around on three legs. At only 4 pounds she loves to play and run around the back yard exploring. One of her favorite things to do is going for a car ride and greeting everyone she sees with kisses and snuggles. She has never met a stranger. This tiny beauty is definitely a little heartbreaker...If you wish to donate to her care please click on the Paypal link below.

THANK YOU TO ERNIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Jan Hobbs, Jan Hobbs

Update 4/7/18

UYR friends, please help us share Ernie’s story so we can help him find his FUREVER home. On May 24th, sweet little Ernie will have been with us in his foster home for an entire year! This sweet boy lived 10 plus years in a puppy mill. All puppy mills are bad but Ernie’s was REALLY bad. So much so that it received coverage on TV stations and multiple newspapers that gave sad details about the terrible situation that Ernie and 300 other animals was rescued from. It makes us very sad to think about how bad Ernie’s life was all those many years so we try to focus on the positive: Ernie was rescued and he is SAFE. UYR took multiple dogs from this case but Ernie has been with us the longest and Ernie deserves to have a forever home. He has watched many, many other dogs get adopted from his foster home but sadly the right home for Ernie has not yet been found. Ernie is a gentle timid soul and a very handsome boy. He is not aggressive at all, he is just scared. He loves being around other dogs because they seem to “get him” and this gives him comfort. Ernie has the doggie version of PTSD from all his years in the puppy mill and he probably always will. He takes medication each day and that has helped him greatly. He has made great strides in his foster home since he arrived but he still has issues that make most adopters pass him by. Ernie will probably never be the lap cuddler that most Yorkie lovers are seeking. While he loves other dogs, he is still mistrustful of new humans and they scare him so he will stiffens up while being petted until he gets to know them. He simply can’t help it and we know for certain the humans at the puppy mill treated him very cruelly. So after 11 years in a terrible place, poor Ernie now has to learn at an older age that not all humans are bad; in fact some humans are very good. Ernie takes medication daily to help with his anxiety and it does help him. He seems to know this and takes it like the good boy that he is. Ernie enjoys being in his home as this is a place he knows he is safe. He dislikes leaving home and going for car rides but tries to be a brave boy for his trips to the Vet and groomer. He will go potty on pads and outside but if he gets scared he will occasionally still poop inside. These episodes are much less frequent than they used to be. He does enjoy sleeping with his human and this seems to be the time that it is okay with Ernie to be close to them. He dislikes crating very much since he lived his whole life in a cage.

Ernie is very much in need of a forever home where he can be loved by some very special adopter. Ernie’s forever human needs to be one who will be very patient and loving with him and let him “come around” on his own schedule. They need to be okay with giving him his anxiety medication each day for the rest of his life. They need to have at least one other easy going adult pup for Ernie to best friends with. A fenced yard is also a must and he can never, ever again be confined to a crate. Ernie’s forever person needs to be one with a heart for saving the imperfect, broken ones that have never truly had a chance to be loved and be a normal dog. They must see that Ernie is perfect in his imperfection and love him for being Ernie. We just know that Ernie’s person is out there. If Ernie’s story tugs at your heart strings and you think you might be Ernie’s human hero then PLEASE apply to adopt him today or email his foster Mom with questions. We are so hopeful that Ernie will spend his one year Rescue anniversary in his FUREVER home.

Updated Bio 1/18/2018: Ernie is a happy little boy and is excited about this new year and he is hoping to have a home and family of his own soon. Now don’t get me wrong , he loves being at foster moms house , it is way better than that bad puppy mill that he lived in for almost 10 years. He has just been at his foster home for awhile now and has watched many other foster doggies come and go , yet he hasn’t gotten to go to a new home yet. Ernie knows he has some PTSD issues but he is working on them, and has been taking his medication like a good boy to help with his anxiety. He loves being around other doggies because he is used to them and is comforted by them. He must go to a home with another dog that he can have as his companion. Humans on the other hand, scare him a bit and he stiffens when being petted till he gets used to a new person. He can’t help it , the humans at the puppy mill didn’t treat him very well. He has to learn at an older age that not all humans are bad, some are very good. If you feel like you have the love and patience to work with Ernie and another dog to be his best friend please click the link below and fill out an application for this sweet boy. After all he has been through he truly deserves a home of his own and just needs someone to give him a chance and teach him how to be loved.

Updated Bio 10/31/2017: Ernie is a 10-year-old, 12 pound schnorkie (Yorkie/ Schnauzer). Ernie lived his life in squalor and neglect. A concerned citizen called law enforcement to report suspected neglect. Soon law enforcement arrived and was stunned to find over 350 animals living in terrible conditions. A large-scale rescue operation involving the Humane Society of the United States, several animal welfare agencies, local rescues and shelters was launched. Ernie and hundreds of other animals were seized and transported to various shelters and agencies for emergency care. Covered in urine and fecal matter, infested with fleas, ticks and intestinal parasites, plagued with severe skin, eye and ear infections, and deprived of adequate food and clean water Ernie and the others began to receive the care they so desperately needed. Fortunately, many of the younger and healthier dogs were able to receive basic care and be adopted out directly. However, Ernie had severe anxiety and could not be placed up for general adoption. They reached out to united Yorkie Rescue to continue to work with Ernie and find him the perfect loving home to give him the future he deserves after what he has been through.

Foster mom originally thought that Ernie would need to be adopted with Bert, whom he was surrendered to United Yorkie Rescue with. They found comfort in one another. However, over the six months they have been in Foster Moms Home she has noticed that they have grown independent and will socialize with the other dogs in the home. Ernie needs a forever home that has love and compassion to help him continue to make progress and allow them to experience how to be a loved and cherished member of the family. Ernie still gets nervous meeting new people and riding in a car. He enjoys being in the comforts of his own home. Ernie has medication that he takes to help him cope with his fear and anxiety. He will most likely need to continue taking for life. Ernie has made tremendous progress, but is still learning how to enjoy being petted, walk well on a leash, he will go potty on wee wee pads and outside. Ernie also enjoys sleeping with Foster Mom. He does not like being crated due to the many years of living in one.

If you would like to help with the cost of his medical care United Yorkie Rescue would really appreciate it. To donate for Ernie please click the PayPal button beneath this bio. Thank you!

Updated Bio 7/23/17: Bert and Ernie have made tremendous progress this last month! When they came into rescue two months ago, both were extremely fearful of humans. The many years of living in a cage at a Puppy Mill didn't let Bert and Ernie experience how to be loved and enjoy doggie things. They would tense up when Foster mom would try to pet them or pick them up. Bath time was super scary. They were not potty trained at all and had to wear a belly bands at all times. Their Foster home has a fenced in yard and they would go outside but wouldn't come in when called with their foster doggie sisters.

Now after two months....

Bert and Ernie now will take food from foster moms hand! They relax while being petted. They use the wee wee pads and no longer have to wear belly bands all the time. They will come in from outside when called. They also enjoy sleeping with Foster mom! They do not know how to play with toys yet but do enjoy playing with each other.

Bert and Ernie are the very best of friends! They find comfort in one another. They must be adopted together. They need a forever home that has love and compassion to help them continue to make progress and allow them to experience how to be a loved and cherished members of the family. Bert has a heart murmur and will need to be on medication for the rest of his life. Both Bert and Ernie are taking medication to help ease their fear and anxiety , which has been working and helping them. After they become adopted and settle in they can be re-evaluated by their vet and see if they should remain on it for life or can be weaned off. Bert and Ernie get along well with other dogs and humans of all ages. Foster mom believes they are ready to be adopted into a loving home that has a heart to continue to work with both Bert and Ernie and love them unconditionally . Look at how much progress they have made in only two months.

Updated Bio 6/18/17: Ernie and Bert came into United Yorkie Rescue about a month ago. They were initially rescued along with about 350 animals living in terrible conditions. A large-scale rescue operation involving the Humane Society of the United States, several other animal welfare agencies, local rescues and shelters was launched. Bert and Ernie along with hundreds of other animals were transported to various shelters and agencies for emergency care. Covered in urine and fecal matter, infested with fleas, ticks and intestinal parasites, plagued with severe skin, eye and ear infections, and deprived of food and clean water. UYR was contacted about Bert and Ernie because they could not be placed up for general adoption due to their special needs and had absolutely no socialization at all. Both were extremely fearful of humans and have anxiety issues and their first instinct is to run and hide with each other in a safe corner.

Bert is a 6-year-old, 9 pound Morkie (Maltese/yorkie mix). Ernie is a 10-year-old Schnorkie (Schnauzer/yorkie mix). Both are neutered, up to date on all shots and have been microchipped. Bert and Ernie are currently taking anxiety medication to help them relax and become more involved with their foster family. Bert has a heart murmur grade 4 and is on 2 medications for this that he will need to be on for life. Foster family has been working very hard on their potty training. They have made great progress in this area, but they still need to wear belly bands due to marking. Now that they are neutered that will get better in time. Both will now take food from your hand , but still tense up when being picked up to be petted and will relax and enjoy it after a few minutes.

Bert and Ernie are VERY BONDED and will have to be adopted together. They want to be with each other at all times and are comforted by each other. It wouldn't be fair to separate them. They still aren't quite ready for adoption. They still need more time to be leash trained and snuggle and enjoy being petted and loves in more. They have begun to sleep with Foster mom this week which is a great step in the right direction to help with their trust issues.

If you would like to help with the cost of their medical care United Yorkie Rescue would really appreciate it. To donate for Bert and Ernie please go to our looking for love link http://www.unitedyorkierescue.org/?page_id=2

Initial Bio 5/24/17 Look at this handsome guy! Are you “Feeling the Ern?????” We sure are! You would never suspect by looking at him but this sweetheart has had a really rough life prior to landing in rescue. Up until 2 weeks ago, Ernie (and his side kick Bert) lived his life in squalor and neglect. A concerned citizen called law enforcement to report suspected case of large scale animal neglect. Soon law enforcement arrived and was stunned to find over 350 animals living in terrible conditions. A large-scale rescue operation involving the Humane Society of the United States, several animal welfare agencies, local rescues and shelters was launched. Ernie and hundreds of other animals were seized and transported to various shelters and agencies for emergency care. Covered in urine and fecal matter, infested with fleas, ticks and intestinal parasites, plagued with severe skin, eye and ear infections, and deprived of adequate food and clean water Ernie and the others began to receive the care they so desperately needed. Fortunately, many of the younger and healthier dogs were able to receive basic care and be adopted out directly. However, Ernie is a senior fella has special needs (anemia from severe intestinal parasites, skin and mouth infections) and could not be placed up for general adoption. When UYR was contacted about accepting Ernie we could not resist his adorable face and his sad story so today Ernie landed in his foster home. Ernie has never been socialized and is understandably scared and mistrustful of humans at present. However, after only a few hours in his foster home he is already allowing limited touching and we feel that with adequate time, love, care and patience he will be a great furry companion for some lucky human out there. Ernie has no clue what housetraining is and has never walked on a leash or even had a collar or harness on until today. UYR will give Ernie all the time he needs to heal physically and emotionally before he is considered for adoption. When that day comes, Bert will need to go to a home where they have the time, patience and dedication to work with him and commit to his ongoing recovery and socialization. Right now Ernie can use all the love and support all of us can muster. Please help us provide for Bert’s medical care by going to our Looking For Love page at http://www.unitedyorkierescue.org/?page_id=2

Hope

Hope is a 1-year-old (estimate), 11 month old, 10 pound Yorkie being fostered bear Clarksville, TN.

THANK YOU TO HOPE's RESCUE ANGELS!

Trula Montgomery, Sheryl Martin

Update 05/18/2018

I have had a pawesome week! I got to visit another foster mom this week and spend time with her pack Bert, Ernie, Gizmo, Sadie, Coco, Cooper Joe, and Toot Toot and of course they all love me because I’m so special. I love to play with them… Cooper Joe and I have become very good friends. Lots of people come in and out and they all let me give them tons of kisses. Sometimes I do like to have my private time and they let me be myself, if I need to spend a little time alone I just go under the couch until I am ready for more play time. I have been doing really good with my potty training or at least that’s what they tell me. I am still looking for my perfect home… So if you have lots of love and attention to give me but can also let me have my private time just fill out an application or if you would like to donate to my care please click on the PayPal button below.

Update 05/07/2018

Hope is doing very well in her foster home. She recently went to a baseball game and had a ball she loved being at the park and exploring all the new smells. She is still dealing with her fear/anxiety issues. She is very shy and likes to spend time alone… you know the saying “let sleeping dogs lie…” well when she is asleep or off to herself it is best to leave her alone, however when she wants to play she is feisty and loving and wants all of your attention. She continues to make tremendous progress but she will need a very patient adopter that is willing to let Hope be Hope and come around on her own schedule. She still does not like to be carried and she will wiggle and squirm until she gets free. Hope is not completely leash trained but is doing much better, house training is another story she is very stubborn like most yorkies. She is all puppy and likes to chew things if not closely supervised. We still feel Hope would do best in an active adults only home where she would get lots of attention and her owner has the time and patience to continue to work with her. She continues to gain trust and know that she is safe and loved we are taking applications for her. If you would like to help us with Hope's ongoing care please click the PayPal button below and Thank You!

Update 4/7/18

Hope is doing very well in her foster home. She definitely has fear/anxiety issues which is why the precious girl landed in rescue. She was shuffled around from owner to multiple rescue groups and this has not helped her. She was very shy and retreating and did not want anyone to pet her or approach. After trying some medications to help her (they did not), Hope's foster Mom and her Vet agree that the only medication that is effective in getting Hope through her fear is "tincture of time" and "bottles of patience and love." She has made tremendous progress but she will need a very patient adopter that is willing to let Hope be Hope and come around on her own schedule. She does like attention and seeks it out. She can be loving on her own terms but when she wants to be left alone it is best to do just that. She does not like to be carried at all and she will wiggle and squirm until she gets free. Hope is not leash trained or house trained as of this writing but she is working on those behaviors in her foster home and making progress. Like most puppies, she will also chew things if not closely supervised. Hope would do best in an active adults only home where she would get lots of attention and her owner has the time and patience to continue to work with her. She does like to sleep in the bed with you and will snuggle once she gets the hint it’s bed time. Hope is just a puppy who got off to a rough start in life and she has her entire life ahead of her to learn how to be a normal dog. We would like her to stay in her foster home a bit longer before she is ready to be adopted so that she can continue to gain trust and know that she is safe and loved but we are taking applications for her. If you would like to help us with Hope's ongoing care please click the PayPal button below and Thank You!

Initial Bio 3/11/18: Hope/Daisy was transfered from a shelter then a rescue to Animal Rescue Corp. This poor baby has been in shelters for 3 months and has a major lack of socialization. Hope/Daisy has major anxiety issues and is very fearful United Yorkie Rescue is slowly working with her to gain a trust of humans. She is the most adorable, happy little girl, when she is not anxious. Stay turned for updates. Applications are not being taken at this time. Hope/Daisy is being fostered near Clarksville, TN.

Molly

Molly is an adorable maltipoo who is only 7 months old and weighs 9 pounds. She is being fostered in Murfreesboro, TN

Molly is a sweet, loving ball of white fluff who loves everyone, human and fur baby alike. We are not totally sure what breed Molly is, since she ended up at the shelter after being abandoned in a hotel room. Animal control was called and soon sweet Molly was in doggie jail. The shelter staff knows UYR helps when we can with sweet Yorkie “wannabes” so we had to Spring this sweet girl! The Vet estimates she is about 7 months old so she is very much still a puppy. She will likely grow to be around 12 pounds as an adult dog but it’s difficult to say since we don’t know her full story. So far she is sweet, playful and doing well in her progress with house training. Molly needs to be spayed and microchipped before she can be adopted.

Adoption Pending

Update 05/18/2018

Hey folks, Scrappy here I wanted to tell you about my adventures this past week. My foster mom and dad went on vacation and unfortunately I could not go with them… BUT I got to have a vacation of my very own. I went to stay with another UYR foster mom and dad. We had so much fun. I got to meet all kinds of new people and animals. I was treated like a Royal… just call me Sir Scrappy… they have lots of furbabies and I made friends with all of them…. Bowser the basset hound also Harley, Roxie, Millie and Hope all yorkies like me. We had so much fun… we got to run in the yard roll in the grass and lounge on the deck in the sun. We went to a kids baseball game and lots of people were there I was very well behaved and all the kids wanted to pet me and love me that was really cool… I even chased a mouse… who needs a cat with me around LOL… BUT what I really want is a family of my very own. If you think I would be the perfect fit for your family please complete an application. I have lots of love to give and we could have so much fun together.

Initial Bio 4/7/18

Meet Scrappy our latest senior heart throb. Scrappy was adopted from a shelter 10 years ago but sadly returned to the same shelter when his owner could no longer care for him. He was in rough shape; a matted mess and badly in need of a dental. Scrappy had to be shaved to the skin to rid him of his mats but in a month or so he will look like the beautiful boy he already is on the inside. After a much needed dental he now has fresh breath and is very kissable. He is also way too skinny at 5 pounds and should be closer to 7 pounds at a healthy weight. So far this boy is sweet, playful and acts nothing like an 11 year old dog. He goes outside to the bathroom and is getting along with his fur siblings. Scrappy has chronic dry eye and will need eye drops for the rest of his life. He has just arrived in his foster home so stay tuned for updates!


To date we've spent $198.50 on Scrappy's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $20.00 in donations.

Arthur

Arthur is the sweetest little 7 pound, 4 year old boy being fostered in Gainesville, TX. He is heartworm positive and is undergoing treatment.

THANK YOU TO ARTHUR'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Tracy Mill, Tracy Mill

Initial Bio 3/30/18: Precious 4yr old Arthur came to us after he was found wandering for over 2 weeks. He was turned into a vets office and found to have a chip, but owner stated she had given him away 2 years ago and wanted nothing to do with him...really!! What's the saying, "one man's trash is another man's treasure"... well he is every bit a treasure!

This little 7 lb doll is just so happy and loving and so full of life. He loves to cuddle, sleep in the bed with his foster mom, and gives the sweetest kisses. Arthur loves to play with his fur siblings, loves all people and gets along with cats as well.

Sadly, since this sweet baby was treated as trash, we are in the process of treating Arthur for heartworm due to his neglect. Once his treatment is complete, he will be so ready for his furever home. This angel will surely bless some lucky adopter. If you feel you have that home, please feel free to contact foster mom at yorkiefostertx@gmail.com or visit our website and put in your application found on the left hand side at www.uyr.us.

THANK YOU TO BJ'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Trula Montgomery

Update Bio. 04/09/18. Hi everyone! BJ here, and I am loving my foster home and family. Although I had a tough transition because I missed my Dad, I am settled in now. I went to the Doctor and he pulled 17 teeth and neutered me all at the same time☹. I am now healed and ready for my forever home. I like other dogs as long as they don’t get in my face, but to be honest, I would prefer to be an only fur child. I am potty trained, and I am a lap baby, especially when my Foster Mom is working at her desk. I have such a loving personality, but I can be a bit feisty at times. Can't wait to meet my new Mom or Dad!!!

Initial Bio. 03/05/18. Meet BJ. BJ comes to United Yorkie Rescue via owner surrender. BJ’s Dad moved, and couldn’t take BJ with him. As you can imagine, BJ is sad and misses his Dad. BJ is 9.5 pounds, and 11 years old. More information to come when Foster Mom gets to know him a little better.

Update Bio. 05/14/18. Hank is doing fairly well. He will get his stiches out this week. We were originally on 6 different meds and have gone down to 4. His leg is still pretty painful but he's getting better each day. In 8 wks we will go back to A&M for I hope his last surgery. This will entail removing the plate and hopefully we will have bone growth at this time! Emotionally, sadly, Hank is still having a very hard time with separatiom. It took me months to start to fix that... I'm back at the beginning and have him back on Prosac as well. This sweet baby is just so loving. He deserves his furever happy and I will be certain he gets that, especially with people that love him like you ❤. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.

5/2/18: Hank pupdate: Hank was seen by the specialists at Texas A&M Vet Hospital and underwent extensive testing again especially due to some Neuro issues, bladder issues and further evaluation of his leg which is very complicated. Hank's femur was shattered in 7 segments... so we have 7 screws along with a plate. The bone around the middle screws is disintegrating. This is either from the body saying we no longer need this bone since we have this plate to provide support, or his bone is just not rejuvenating. Sadly, trying to fix this might take 2 stages. We had 3 options, but bottom line we are choosing to remove the 3 middle screws, pack in bone generating material while keeping the plate secured at the top and the bottom. Also, the surgeon will try to fix the patella. If it's at all possible they may try to remove this larger plate and attach a smaller plate. If not, we will be looking at another surgery again! Surgery will be Thursday morning and Hank will be there until at least Saturday. This is so hard on him emotionally... his separation anxiety is the saddest I have ever witnessed. We'll all be very anxious to get him past this next hurdle and get him home where he can rest and be with foster mom.

Update 3/30/18: From a body full of bruises and broken bones to now. We still have one more hurdle with this adorable little guy and it will require breaking his leg for the final fix. This is almost unbearable for me to fathom after all this sweet boy had been through. Hanks next surgery will be the costliest one after all of his medical and surgeries to date. The ortho center at Texas A&M refer to Hank as a unique case. They will need to remove the plate and screws, rebreak his leg where the deformity is, place a smaller appliance on, repair his locked patella and torn ACL. UYR is looking at a cost of up to $5000. I'm asking, maybe pleading at this point, as I personally have 4 medical rescues in my care, but this baby boy is worth every penny.

Hank still holds emotional scars with his fear of separation, but after all this little man had endured, he is just the absolute most loving baby ever. He will eventually be someone's pride and joy that will be rewarded back with so much love. Please, please donate, share and pray for this little boy. As always, thank you and bless you all!

Update Bio. 03/08/18. We were so blessed to have had the opportunity to get Hank to Texas A&M Small Animal Hospital. There were many more players involved, but I wanted to thank Dr Grimes (Internal Medicine)and Tierney for their constant dedication in diagnosing and helping us get answers for this sweet boy.

Bladder: we are still waiting for bile acids results but we do know Hank does still does have a resistant UTI. Cultures are still growing so in the next few days he will be placed on the proper antibiotic to address this issue. We may have a sphincter issue that is not responding properly causing his dripping, but we believe that by keeping him on Proin along with getting a grip on this UTI maybe his solution. There is a defect in his bladder, but they do not believe it is necessary to do the surgery.

Siezures: We will start Kepra

Leg: Hanks patella cannot be moved and is at a 4 out of 4 so will require surgery. His leg has also healed wrong, so the orthopedic thinks we will more than likely have to remove the plate and screws, rebreak the leg, and put a different plate on in its place. This breaks my heart of course.

I'm waiting for an email regarding his discharge and plans and will address again but i wanted to let you all know about his findings and that we finally have answers. Prayers for this little abused baby ❤😔

Bio Update 01/27/18. UNITED YORKIE RESCUE and I need help and prayers for these two precious United Yorkie Rescue boys that have been in the limelight of our site recently and in the past. Next week, I have both Hank and Jasper going for major surgery.

Hank, as you may recall, was horribly abused resulting in a shattered femur and a bladder injury. We are going back into surgery due to his lameness and bladder issues. His surgery will require removing his plates and screws and repairing his ACL and patella. The surgeon is also going to do a contrast study of his bladder while is under and hopefully repair the bladder or possibly have to create a new opening so that this little boy can urinate without the struggles he is having. He was severely abused at the hands of an evil man, and this poor angel has endured so much emotional trauma, as well. Hank’s surgery will be very expensive, but this sweet baby deserves his life without pain.

These are two of the most deserving little boys in our rescue, and I am asking you to please donate, share and pray for these sweet boys. I thank you from the bottom of my heart and I know these babies if they could would thank you as well. Bless you all!

Update 11/18/17:

So much has been going on in this precious boys’ life that it’s time to update! We have reached the 8 week mark since Hank’s surgery to repair his shattered femur, and removal of stones that entered the bladder due to severe abusive trauma. We still have no use of his leg and Hank is dependent on belly bands due to constant incontinence. We have met with 2 vets and have received information about what is happening with this sweet baby and have come up with a plan for a final fix…God willing!

In repairing Hanks femur with the plate, Hank has developed a Grade 5 out 5 lameness with drawer sign and a patella luxation. We need to give his femur at least 30 more days for bone growth then go in to remove the plate and perform lateral suture of the cruciate ligament (ACL) and patella repair. We will also if necessary repair any blockage or stricture involving the ureter.

In the meantime, we will see the vet and perform some tests to analyze what is going on with this baby’s bladder so if surgery is needed, it will be performed all at once so as not to put this angel through another procedure. This could include a contrast study of the bladder, but if this particular test is necessary, it will also be done prior to his surgical repair to his leg and bladder issues AGAIN!

Emotionally, Hank is healing well I think. He no longer cries hysterically because I have left the room and I am out of sight…he whines softly lol. He is truly the most loving little man. He literally rolls his little body over and pushes his body and head into you so hard because he cannot get close enough!

I literally cry, like I’m doing now, just writing this knowing this little guy must go through this surgery again. I feel at times he must think I’m causing his pain, when this was all at the hand of a monster and all I just want for him is to be pain free and healed.

I ask you to keep him in your prayers and pray for good bone growth n these next 30 days. I also ask you to consider once again supporting him through a donation through our website www.uyr.us as once again, this surgery and testing will not be cheap, but look at this baby…he is worth every penny to fix what that monster did. Thank you all…bless you all…have an amazing Thanksgiving! Hugs~~Susan and Hank~~

Initial Bio 9/20/17:

It's so sad when the only pics I have to introduce this baby to the rescue look like this. So everyone meet Hank. Hank is an owner surrender by his mommy. After a bath by her fiance, Hank slipped and fell, and she found him holding up his leg. She thought maybe this was patella issues then over the weekend the bruising and swelling settled in. She began calling vets for pricing to get him seen but financially she just couldn't afford the cost so she reached out to rescue. We met at the ER since it was after hours for vets so we could see what we might be dealing with. Tears flowing, she said goodbye to her baby of 8yrs.

Hank was taken to the back as I filled out his paperwork. The vet came in and asked about the auto accident Hank was in...sadly what I had seen in the pictures were being realized. Hanks femur was shattered and broken, her words, "this is extreme blunt force trauma... no slip in the tub, and he may need amputation."

I collected myself, collected this poor broken baby and both he and I cried the whole hour drive home avid through the night. Rescue has an evil side. I've seen the mill babies, the abandoned ones, the sick ones, the list goes on and on, but to see evil hurts to the soul. Look at these eyes, who does this!!!???!! Why???

Thursday, we see an ortho specialist to see if we can save sweet Hank's leg. He's spending the night at Dr. Sam's so his pain can be managed along with antibiotics to fight bone infection and along with medication for his swelling and bruising. Needless to say, we are only two days in and Hanks care and his medical is going to be sooo overwhelming. Please, please give to this babies medical. He will live, God willing, but he has a long road to go and we need you and your support and love and your shares. God bless you and thank you!

Meet sweet Helen.Helen is an estimated 10-year-old, 10 lb girl being fostered in TX

THANK YOU TO HELEN'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Allison Stevens, Veronica Mercer, Maggie Blake, Rebecca Lansing, Jane St. John, Christine Flaherty, Matthew Scott Gann, John Sauser, Tony Cacioppo, Trula Montgomery, Milagros Toro

Update Bio. 4/3/18. Helen is making great progress, both physically and emotionally. She loves hanging with the pack, eating and being near her person. Helen is a very smart little girl, she has learned to go outside for business and then sit for her treat. Helen gets a medicated bath followed by a coconut oil rub down several times a week, and it's paying off. Her hair is starting to grow as her skin gets healthier, and she doesn't itch nearly as much. Helen still has a long road in front of her. Once her skin is healthy, she will undergo surgery to remove several mammary tumors and cysts. Helen's doctors are encouraged by her progress. Hopefully, we will have the sweet girl at her best in no time. Thank you to Helen's donors for being part of her story. She's so sweet and so worth the time and love invested in her. We will keep you posted on her progress.

Initial Bio. 03/07/18. Helen comes to UYR as an abandoned dog used in breeding. She was discarded by her owners when she was no longer of any value to them. She is most likely about 10 yrs old and weighs 9.7lbs.

Despite the fact that her skin is infected and she has lost most of her hair, it is obvious that she is relieved to be in the arms of love and safety. Although Helen is in constant discomfort, she not only wags her tail but she gladly gives the sweetest kisses. Fortunately, she is HW negative and it has been determined that her skin issues are probably untreated infections induced by either fleas or allergies. She has had a full blood panel which will help us to determine next steps. Helen gets along with her new fur siblings and is catching on quickly to the routines. There is a beautiful Yorkie under all of this neglect but Helen will need our help. If you would like to help us help her reach the best life ever please visit our website. We appreciate our donors so much. Without you the Helen's don't ever know love. Thank you for your consideration of becoming part of Helen's happy life.

Update Bio. 05/11.18. Sweet Lilliana began showing signs of serious illness last night and was rushed to the doggie emergency room. It was determined she had full pyometra and had emergency surgery. She was extremely ill and we weren't sure she would come through the surgery but thankfully she did and will be discharged to her regular vet today so she can remain on IV antibiotics. Since her rescue we did two ultrasounds to be sure she wasn't pregnant and had her spay scheduled for Monday but with the rapid decline in her health, had to rush her into surgery. Prayers are needed for this sweetie who has had such a rough time since coming into foster care.

Initial Bio. 5/1/18 Iilliana is a new rescue who we are just getting to know. She has some vetting needs that must be addressed before we can share any meaningful information. Please watch for updates as we learn more about this sweet girl.


To date we've spent $1073.16 on Lilliana's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $365.00 in donations.

Tx Bo

TX Bo

TX Bo is a sweet 5 year old, 8 pound Yorkie boy being fostered in Grapevine, TX.

THANK YOU TO TX BO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Heather Frank

Initial Bio. 05/18/18.Sweet little, five-year-old Bo came into our rescue exactly one week ago. He has already had a dental and a deep ear cleaning, from which he bounced back very quickly. Bo is the cutest, friendliest, sweetest little boy ever! He's very healthy, and has been well taken care of.

His sad story is that his owner had to move into a memory care facility, and didn't recall that she even had a dog. Her son didn't want Bo, but he did want Bo to find a loving new family. One of the people who works at the facility is connected to one of our members and reached out to us to see if we could take a Bo.

I know that he is going to find a wonderful family who loves to play and go for walks because those are two of his favorite things, especially going for a walk! Bo is also a cuddle bug, and quickly bonds to his person! He's great with other dogs and cats, and loves children! He's perfect! The only caution I would have with this little guy is that he will run out the door in his excitement to go for a walk or to go outside and play. He will need a family who will be very cautious and be able to keep him back from the door when it is opened. I just scoop him up and hold him if I have to answer the door and that works perfectly. He's excited to see whomever it is on the other side!

Are you the perfect family for Bo? Please submit an application so we can see if you are a good match for each other.


To date we've spent $0 on TX Bo's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $50.00 in donations.

Toto
Texas
Toto

Toto is an adorable 9 year old, 16 pound Yorkie mix being fostered in Frisco, TX. He is diabetic and will need an owner who is willing to adhere to his medication schedule 24x7.

THANK YOU TO TOTO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Update bio. 03/07/18. 2/25/18 Update: Toto’s surgery to remove the bladder stones was a success!! He’s back to being his happy lovable self! Removing the stones relieved the pain and stress he must have been feeling and that has helped us get his insulin dosage right and regulate his glucose levels. I’ve been pleasantly surprised by Toto’s reaction to all the rain we’ve received lately. It doesn’t seem to bother him at all. Even in a downpour he goes out the doggie door to pee and hasn’t had even one accident in the house. I’m hoping my other fur baby will learn from him. Although he doesn’t mind the rain I know he’s looking forward to the nicer weather days when we can start the walks again. His favorite path seems to be the trail that starts at the end of our street. Toto sends a heartfelt THANK YOU to those who have donated to his treatment and those that have sent prayers and good thoughts for his recovery.

Update 1/11/18: Toto had his follow-up today on his surgery, glucose, and liver. His surgery was a success! He is healing nicely and has to wear the cone on his head for another two weeks, but he no longer needs to be confined. The stones turned out to be the kind that will most likely return. However the change in his urination as a result of the surgery will mean he can expel them more readily.

Toto’s diabetes management is doing well too. He’s been on 4 units and may need an additional slight adjustment to his morning and even dose but clearly removing the stones and a change in diet seem to have helped his diabetes since the insulin needed has dropped.

Toto has a good appetite and all systems of elimination are normal . He is no longer drinking excessively, has lots of energy and seems really happy. What a change from a month ago! Once he is fully healed from surgery and we have the insulin dosage finalized, he will be ready for adoption. Toto’s total vetting cost more than $5000 and we would appreciate your support in helping us cover the expenses for this sweet boy.

Update 12/22/17: Since he’s been in foster care, Toto's foster mom has noticed that he has difficult urinating. When he urinates, he takes a long time, it’s a very thin stream and then he drips for a while. A vet exam and subsequent x-rays showed several stones in the urethra and several more in the bladder. The stones do not appear to be completely blocking the penis at this point but they are definitely restricting his urination. They suspect the stones have been there for months and they also suspect the stones, which have jagged edges may have caused some cutting and scaring in the urethra. The scarring more than likely will also cause restriction in the size of the opening of the urethra and cause issues with urination even with the stones removed. The recommendation is to do surgery to remove all the stones in the urethra and the bladder. The surgery they are proposing is to be a urethrostomy which is a procedure to bypass the penile urethra and create a separate opening before the urethra from which Toto would urinate going forward. In effect he would urinate like a female. This would also aid with any future stones that are formed in the bladder because they could be more easily expelled through the new opening rather than getting stuck again in the urethra. Normally following surgery Toto would be put on a prescription food to help keep stones from forming. However that food would not work for Toto because of his diabetes. There remains the possibility that the stones could come back in the future but they would be more easily expelled. Surgery has been scheduled so Toto can be relieved of the pain he is experiencing.

Update bio. 11/27/17. Toto loves his foster home and family. But a couple of weeks ago he got really sick. HIs sugar levels were very high making him feel lethargic and nauseous. He spent the weekend in the ER on a constant insulin feed; in addition he had ketones and his liver enzymes were high. He’s now on a vitamin for his liver and we’re working to regulate his insulin dosage. During one of the re-check visits, we found he has stones. Two large ones and many pebbles in his bladder, and 7 large ones in his urethra; doctor says they have likely been there for months. He’s scheduled for surgery on Friday, Dec 29. It breaks my heart to see all this sweet boy has been through over the past few weeks. I can tell he doesn’t feel the best but hoping once the stones are removed and his insulin is regulated again he’ll be back to his happy playful self. Thank you.

Please keep Toto in your prayers for his surgery this week. And if you’d like to help us with Toto’s medical costs, it would be very much appreciated, and can be done via the button at the bottom of his profile.

Initial Bio 11/19/17: Hi, I’m Toto!! Thought I’d tell you a little about me and then my foster mom can fill in the rest! I’ve owned the same humans since I was 12 weeks old; I’m 9 now. But recent health problems caused them to ask United Yorkie Rescue to take me. My humans loved me very much and still check up on how I’m doing. I’m having a blast at my foster house and am making them laugh. Like when I race through the house sliding around the corners on the hardwood floors (usually on my way out the doggie door); or the time I discovered I that I love to play in the sprinklers and shocked my foster mom by coming in through the doggie door dripping wet; oh, and then there’s the time my foster mom tried to give me my insulin shot and stuck herself instead (did I mention that I’m diabetic?). I’ve also fallen in love while at my foster home; her name is Mitzy and she was a rescue like me! Ok, now that I’ve introduced myself I’ll turn it over to my foster mom to bring you up to speed on the rest of my story……

OMG - this little guy is sooooo sweet! And soft! Dr Buffington says Toto does have diabetes but his sugar levels are regulated through twice daily insulin shots and a healthy diet. He is so good about getting his shots and actually starts wagging his tail as soon as he sees the insulin come out of the fridge (maybe it has something to do with the extra treat he gets with each shot. Lol. Other than the diabetes Toto is very healthy. Toto has a foster sister, Sunshine, and a foster friend, Mitzy. He follows Mitzy around and give her tons of kisses. When Mitzy lays down Toto curls up next to her with his paw on her back or his head on her butt. Toto is 17 pounds, gets along well with other dogs (unsure about cats), is housetrained, neutered, microchipped, and very loving and affectionate. He has never bitten anyone but his former family said he does get nervous around smaller children that move fast or rush at him. Toto would fit best with a family without small children, where he would receive lots of love and affection, and where there would be a commitment to giving his insulin on schedule and maintaining a healthy diabetes-friendly diet. If you think you could love a sweetie like Toto, please complete an adoption application for him.

Dahlia
West Virginia
Dahlia

Dahlia is a sweet 2 year old, 10 pound little girl being fostered in West Virginia.

THANK YOU TO DAHLIA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Jean Jones, Lisa Pirrotta

Update Bio. 02/23/18. Welcome Dahlia to United Yorkie Rescue! We got an urgent email from the NYC shelter asking for us to take a very sick little girl. Of course we wanted this little girl in our care, asap. She wasn't moving and wasn't eating. She had a white blood cell count that was through the roof, a tumor, and very bad eye and ear infections. Pyometra and cancer were our biggest fears. It didn't look good. Dahlia was seen immediately by our vet. Thanks to the vets at the NYC shelter, Dahlia was on the mend. Her white count, still high, was manageable. Her eye infection was so bad that the vet expected her to want a quiet place and little movement for two weeks. Her tumor was not going to be a problem, an easy removal with her spay. The happily ever after for this sweet girl is that she will make a full recovery.

Dahlia is a two year old salt and pepper colored Chorkie. She is part Chihuahua and part Yorkie. She is only eight pounds and just wants belly rubs. She gets along with all dogs and she is completely house-trained. She is snuggly and affectionate. She still has long rests in a quiet area as she is still recouperates. Once she is better, her spay and tumor removal will take place. Dahlia is amazingly sweet little girl that just wants to be loved.

Initial Bio 2/12/18: Dahlia was a pretty sick little girl when she came to us from a New York shelter. We thought she had conjunctivitis but it turns out she has a severe eye and ear infection. She was given Baytril upon coming into rescue which the vet thinks warded off a case of pyometra. She'll be closely watched and hopefully be able to have her spay done in 10 days once the infections have cleared.


To date we've spent $774.68 on Dahlia's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $75.00 in donations.

Ozzie
West Virginia
Ozzie

Ozzie and Wally are a bonded pair of Yorkie mixes being fostered in West Virginia. They must be adopted together.

Update Bio. 04/09/18. Wally and Ozzie have settled in well at their foster home. They are just a joy to be around. They get along with dogs big and small and they love all humans they have met. They are house-trained, love crates, ride in the car perfectly, and have great manners at home. They are affectionate and love to snuggle. So smart, they do what they are asked to do. They may be senior gentlemen at 11 and 13, but these boys have no problem keeping up with a one year old dog and the bigger dogs. If foster mom didn't have all vet records from birth, she would never believe these boys are seniors. They are in excellent health despite a slight murmur in Ozzie. No medications needed. Wally and Ozzie are looking for a home where they can spend their leisurely retirement years. They like a fenced yard but love walks too. They are very adaptable. These boys have so much love and devotion to give.

Update 2/22/18: Wally and Ozzie have been in their foster home for two weeks. These two boys couldn't be more adorable. Ozzie is a Yorkiepoo, 10 pounds, 11 years old. Wally is a Poodle, 9 pounds, 12 years old. They are super sweet, affectionate, are perfectly behaved, and are just loving life. They are happy and well-adjusted. It's a pleasure to have the opportunity to be loved by these amazing little boys. Ozzie and Wally's ideal home will be calm with no small children. They love exploring in the yard. Both boys appear healthy and they have a nice energy level. They have been loved all of their lives and it shows.

Initial Bio 2/5/18: Wally and Ozzie are two senior boys who have been together for ten years. They found themselves at the shelter when their owner could no longer care for them. They went directly into their foster home where they have been adjusting to their new life. Ozzie is happy and instantly loves everyone. Wally is more reserved. Foster mom let Wally have an open crate and gave him his space. Ozzie never left his side. It took Wally nine days to feel comfortable. At two weeks, he was in foster mom's lap. Wally is now a happy boy like his brother. They both love naps and belly rubs. These boys needs a gentle, caring family. Ozzie and Wally are house-trained, crate trained, and have perfect leash and car skills. Bath time is a breeze. They come when they are called. They like other dogs that are nice. Once Wally warms up and trusts, these two boys will give love, affection, and plenty of kisses and snuggles.

Ozzie has a grade III/IV heart murmur. It is not affecting him.

Scout
West Virginia
Scout WV

Meet the handsome Scout! Scout is a 1 year-old, yorkie mix weighing 10 lbs. He is being fostered in WV,.

Update Bio. 04/09/18. Scout is a beautiful Shorkie, Shih Tzu and Yorkie, puppy. Scout is only available for adoption to someone who will help with his fear issues. He is a year old, house-trained, crate and car trained, and is learning the steps towards his Canine Good Citizen certification. Scout has not been available in the past but we are ready to start working on finding him the right home. Please do not inquire unless you read through his bios and updates. He will also need a home close to his foster. Scout is in Martinsburg WV. His potential adopters can help with his trust issues by meeting at the local park and getting to know him slowly. He needs an adult only home and his ideal new family should have some experience with helping a dog that is fearful learn to trust again. Scout adores his foster mom and dad but will not allow a relationship past his two trusted humans. He loves all of his fur siblings, from three to sixty pounds. He is affectionate and loves life.

Update Bio. 03/05/18 Scout is not available for adoption at this time.

Scout, our little fluffy Shorkie (Shih Tzu and Yorkie), has been settling in at his foster home. He is a happy, healthy 1 1/2 year old puppy who loves life. He is well above average in intelligence, quickly learning his steps to Canine Good Citizen completion. He sits, comes when called, and he will stay. He also does what his foster mom asks the first time she says a command. He will stop playing and stand, he know the term gentle when playing with the tiny ones and mom, and he goes wherever he is asked. He's completely house-trained, loves his crate, perfect in the car, and loves all of his fur brothers and sisters. At night, he couldn't get closer when snuggling foster mom and the orhers sleeping. Perfect, right? Well, not exactly.

Scout had his first session with his behaviorist and it didn't go well. He growled the whole time and could not be consoled. After careful observations, Scout was put back with the other dogs where he immediately calmed down. Then the behaviorist and foster mom had a long talk and a plan was put into place. As mentioned in his previous bio, Scout has a bite history. He was literally hidden in a box in a storage room at the shelter when the director came through, knowing he would be killed. The staff saved this little fluff ball from euthanasia and reached out to United Yorkie Rescue to save his life. We knew this would be a tough case but with Scout, this time we were truly saving a life.

The behaviorist has concluded that Scout has been mistreated, most likely hit repeatedly in his former home. His growling keeps people away. If they stay away, he won't be hit. He trusts his foster mom and dad implicitly, but unfortunately no one else 100% of the time. We have a plan for Scout but it will be a long rehab. He needs to forget his past and trust those around him. He may always only trust a few people. But for now, he is safe, happy, healthy, loved, and because of the efforts of United Yorkie Rescue, alive!

Initial Bio 12/17/17: Welcome little Scout. You will be spending Christmas in your new foster home. Your shelter days are over. Scout is a one year old puppy. He's a little bit Yorkie, Poodle, Shih Tzu, and maybe Maltese. It all adds up to an adorable ten pound ball of fluff. He is just a beautiful little boy.

Scout has a sad story that could have ended his life. Little Scout has a bite history which made him unadoptable in the shelter. His paperwork stated that he bit his owner. That meant he was only able to leave the shelter with a rescue. Weeks went by and no rescue would take him. His time ran out and the shelter had given up hope. A tiny puppy was going to lose his life. Little Scout is a mix breed and to save his life, the shelter reached out to United Yorkie Rescue, hoping we could see a glimpse of a Yorkie in all that fluff, enough of a glimpse to save his life. We saw what we needed to see to save this sweet boy and give him a chance for a loving family to call his own. After some digging into his bite incident, it was found that Scout bit his owner when the owner experienced a grand mal seizure. But after a few days, Scout's foster mom feels that he may have been hit by a human.

Scout is house-trained, crate-trained, has great leash skills, and loves to ride in the car. He listens well and has great social skills. He is affectionate and loves attention. He adores toys and will play tug of war politely. We are just getting to know him as he has only been saved for a few days, just in time to spend Christmas with his loving foster family. He fit right in from the start with his fur siblings. Enjoy the longer hair in the pictures because he has some knots. He will get a grooming after the holidays.

Scout is a puppy and his new family needs to be dedicated to continuing his positive reinforcement training. We are currently working on sit, off, kisses, and easy. He is doing very well.

Scout will not be immediately available for adoption. Keep watching his updates for when he becomes available.

Meet Avery, a 1.5 year old, 17 pound Yorkie Mix. He is being fostered near Sheboygan, WI.

THANK YOU TO AVERY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Wendy Klinke

Initial Bio 4/17/18: Avery is a 1.5 year old, 17 lb. Yorkie-mix. We do not know what he is a mix of, but he is a very handsome boy. He came from an 80 dog hoarding situation, but despite all that he has been thru, he is starting to trust people.

Avery had his veterinary appointment today and did well. I was able to pick him up and hold him while my husband drove us to the vet. Dr. T, my wonderful veterinarian, was also able to pick him up and examine him.

Avery is great with other dogs. He goes up and down our steps to go outside to potty etc. and when he is done, he runs right back to the door to be let back in. I feel that in a month or two, Avery is going to be a loving companion for someone. Watch for more updates as I get to know Avery better.

Michael (formerly MJ) is a 10-year-old, 13 pound Yorkie boy who is being fostered near Madison, WI.

THANK YOU TO MICHAEL'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Trula Montgomery

05/14/18. Update Bio. Hello everyone! Just an update on Michael! He is still looking for his forever home ❤️. Michael is a very healthy 10 year who loves to go for walks, play with toys, cruise around his fenced in back yard, and snuggle with humans. He knows how to sit and shake and takes treats from you so very gently! Michael sleeps with us in bed and is a very good sleeper.

He is very jealous of other dogs and would love to be the only one in your home so a home without other pets would be best. Also do to his love of the outside he must have a fenced in back yard.

If your think your home is perfect for super sweet Michael please go to www.uyr.us and fill out an application I would be happy to answer any questions you have about Michael. 😊

04/18/18. Update Bio. Hello everyone. A little story to tell. Michael has left his previous foster because I had one that needed more attention that Michaels foster mommy was much suited to handle. So yesterday Michael came to stay with me. I have to say I am so in love with Michael. The transition from his previous foster home to mine has gone without a hitch. He has settled in so nicely and he is the perfect gentleman. He gets along with my two Yorkies just fine. He has a nice appetite and is the perfect cuddle bug. He is wearing a belly band these days because his previous foster home had a doggie door which he had no problem using and I’m sure within the next day or two once he learns the routine here the belly band will be adios 😬.

Although he is 10 years of age don’t let that deter you from adopting this sweet fellow. He acts much younger. He still has so much to give and is looking for his forever home Will consider adopting to a home with children over the age of 12 Any questions please feel free to email me at quietcourt2@yahoo.com. To fill out an application to adopt go to www.uyr.us.

03/20/18. Initial Bio. Hello my name is Michael and I’m a 10 year old handsome Yorkie boy. I do have a strong but loving personality. I would love to be the top dog, but will take the role as cuddle buddy also.

My foster home has lots of activity going on almost all the time, and unlike my foster brothers and sister, I don’t bark and cause a bunch of noise.

I’m a good boy with lots of love to share with the right person of family.
