Oliver

Bio 7/1/2020: Hello everyone, my name is Oliver! I am beautiful Yorkie who is only 9 years old and I weigh about 8lbs.

On June 17th, my parents just dumped me at the Shelter because I have a little mass on the back of my neck. This I think is nothing serious. The vet says we just cut it off and cut off the little ones by my eyes tooits a little scary for me, but foster mom says we will do it because Im so handsome!!

Fortunately for me, I was rescued by UYR and I have the best foster mom. I am resting and learning so many things. She buys me so many things tooI have beds and toys. I am sooo lucky!

I am little , I weigh only 8lbs, and my foster mom always tells me that I am her Teddy Bear, I think because I am very soft and I always like to be picked up so I can melt in her arms.

I dont like car rides very much; I get very anxious and nervous I pant constantly actually. But I like to go for short walks, and I do very well with the leash. I am also working on my potty habits and Im doing great!

I am very calm, and I love to nap a lot. My favorite thing is to cuddle next to my foster mom and I love that she rubs my belly so I can keep napping.

I do have the worst mouth because my owner didnt take very good care of me, but in August I get to get all the owies out of my mouth and the bumps off my neck and eye. I cant wait! It may take me a little time to be ready but I will be looking for my furever mommy an daddy, If you think Im all that (and I am), please fill out an application and pick me. If you need any information about me, you can also email my foster mom at yorkie4adoption@gmail.com. Ill be waiting!!

I love my toys and I will love you too

Sometimes a girl just needs a rest after a day of playing
Florida
Daisy Mae

Daisy Mae is an adorable, beautiful, silver, 15 month young puppy girl. She weighs a perfect 11 pounds. Daisy is being fostered in Leesburg, FL.

Due to Covid-19 Daisy can only be adopted within the state of Florida.

THANK YOU TO DAISY MAE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Karry Rogers, Jane St. John, Sandy Pagnotta, Jeanette Howell, Dawn Dion, Maureen McCosker, Robin Nyberg, Mary Whitaker, Barbara Burgess, Irene and Peter Havas in memory of darling Happy, Holly Keller, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Sandy Pagnotta, Brandy Swanson, Ilene Rand, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Mary Guimaraes, Sharon Stryszyk, Cynthia Kirk

Updated bio 7/23/20 Sweet Daisy Mae is a United Yorkie Rescue dog again. Welcome back, Daisy. It seems that this very active, still a puppy, young girl was playing too rough with the small 3.5-pound dog in her new family. She tried so hard to play with the little guy, who also liked to play, but she was bigger and stronger and would often end up hurting him by accident. It got to a point where Daisy was spending too much time in Time-Out feeling bad, wondering what she did wrong over and over again. As much as her mom and dad tried to work on this and correct her behavior, she is still a puppy and needed to work off her energy. The right thing to do, the safe thing to do, and really the only thing to do was for UYR to find Daisy a home where she would be happier and really have a friend to play with her and won't be scared of her size and her energy.

Daisy's former mom did say that Daisy Mae has learned her proper house-training manners, and she likes to be in her crate for her rest times. She loves her toys, though sometimes she likes to take them apart. Daisy is a good eater, she loves her food, and is great in the car. Daisy loves to give kisses. She is the kissingest little girl ever. If you want a dog to cuddle with and give you lots of kisses, Daisy Mae may be your girl.

Daisy Mae must have a home with a fenced yard. She needs a safe place to run and play. She would like a friend in her new home who is close to her age and size. She cannot go to a home with small dogs weighing less than 9 pounds. A dog closer to her 11 pounds would even be better.

Daisy still is pretty mouthy and likes to nip at people when she gets excited, when she is glad to see someone, or wants attention. It is not a nip ever done in anger but in affection, play with me, look at me, be with me. We will continue to work on that with Daisy and help her find a more appropriate ways to express her needs. However, because of that nipping Daisy Mae cannot go to a home with kids under the age of 14. She can get too rough and children often dont understand that they can't hurt her back or yell at her because she won't learn that way.

Daisy Mae is scheduled to have her vaccinations updated and her follow up bile acids test done very soon. The bile acids test is to make sure her liver shunt surgery, done in September, continues to be successful. Once we have that information and know more about our Daisy Mae, she should be ready to find her new and perfect forever home.

Daisy Mae is a young full of energy pup. She needs an active life style. She needs someone who can give her a home with a fenced yard and a family for all her life. That may be for at least the next 15 or more years she most likely has to give her love and kisses to.


To date we've spent $2296.75 on Daisy Mae's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1387.00 in donations.

I am happy to be out of pain from my eyes

I feel so much better
Florida
Dakota

MEET DAKOTA. Dakota is a sweet little female Miniature Schnauzer/Poodle mix (a Schnoodle!) who is 9 years old and weighs a chubby 16.7 lbs. She is blind as a result of glaucoma. Dakota is being fostered in Spring Hill, Florida. Due to Covid-19, all Florida foster dogs must be adopted by Florida residents at this time. No exceptions will be made.

UPDATED BIO 07/29/2020: Dakota was picked up as a stray by animal control and was in pretty bad shape. She had bilateral ear infections, was infested with fleas, and was very dirty and matted. It was obvious that she had been neglected for a long time. As if that wasnt enough for this precious little girl, her eyes had mature cataracts and corneal edema, and upon further examination, it was discovered that she had glaucoma in both eyes. Glaucoma causes pain that is more severe in dogs than in humans, so she most likely has been in pain for a long time. She was already non-visual in both eyes, so the decision was made to enucleate both of her eyes to alleviate the pain and suffering she has had to endure.

Dakota has been in her foster home for a week now, and she is doing exceptionally well. She is getting along with the resident dog Bailey and they go out together for a leash walk. Dakota has learned to walk down the 3 steps with a little help from the leash/harness. She is also going up the steps, and has learned to angle her body sideways so that she won't bump her nose on the steps. She can be guided outdoors with a slight directional pressure from Foster mom and immediately redirects when she feels the pressure. Dakota may not have had steps/stairs in her former home and also may not have been taken out for frequent walks, so this is a learning curve for her. She is a smart little girl and has managed to figure out the stairs quickly.

Dakota has been groomed and was very good for the groomer - what a sweetie! She is a good eater, but she is a few pounds overweight, so she is on a slightly restricted diet at this time. She loves attention from her human and enjoys their companionship, and has even tried to engage Bailey in play. When she hears other dogs, she is very interested in joining them presumably for play or companionship. Her perfect home would include another dog close to her size and age for a companion and playmate. Foster Mom says that Dakota will be a very loving companion to her forever adoptive parents. Could that be you?

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Dakota's blindness, she can only be adopted into an adult-only home.

Glaucoma causes pain that is more severe in dogs than in humans, so she most likely has been in pain for a long time. She was already non-visual in both eyes, so the decision was made to enucleate both of her eyes to alleviate the pain.

Dakota was likely a beloved companion dog at one time, but she did have a history with the shelter since she had been there previously and when the owner was contacted, they did show up and reclaim her. However, this time when contact was made with the owner several times, she never showed up to pick up this precious little girl. When UYR was called about Dakota, it wasn't hard to make the decision to bring her into our Foster Care Program.

Dakota is a very sweet little girl who over the years has adjusted to having no vision. She gets along with other dogs. We have no history if she gets along with cats. She walks on a leash and responds well to verbal cues. She is quiet, rides well in the car, and is otherwise a healthy little girl. Dakota's perfect home would be one that perhaps has some experience with blind dogs; however, there are many resources available on the internet that can guide owners on how to live with blind dogs. Due to her special needs, we feel a quiet laid-back home would be ideal for her. An adult only home would be preferred, but children 14 years old or older would also be okay.

Please don't look away from Dakota due to her blindness. She has a lot of years to give love and devotion to a forever family. There is so much more to learn about her, so stay tuned to learn more about her and her progress in her foster home.

I am a beautiful senior gal

I am enjoying my foster home
Florida
Gabby

MEET GABBY. Gabby is a beautiful little senior female yorkie mix who is 13 years old and weighs 12 lbs. Gabby is being fostered in Dunedin, FL. Due to Covid-19, all Florida foster dogs must be adopted by Florida residents at this time. No exceptions will be made.

THANK YOU TO GABBY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Anita Foss, Linda Worsham

UPDATED BIO 07/22/2020: Sweet Senior Gabby is settling nicely into her foster home. Her elderly owner passed away in May as a result of complications from COVID-19, and a family member stepped up to care for her. They are moving out of state and when UYR was contacted about Gabby, we were happy to bring her into our Foster Care Program.

Due to a lifetime of dental neglect, Gabbys teeth were in horrible condition. At her recent dental, she had to have her remaining 14 teeth removed, so she is now a toothless Princess. On the positive side, Gabby is feeling much better already as she was obviously in a lot of pain from the rotten teeth. During the dental, the vet discovered that this sweet little girls jaw was broken in two places, and it appeared that this was done years ago. Sadly, it is not repairable by surgery, but she can live in reasonable comfort now once her mouth heals from all the extractions. She also had two small benign lumps removed. Even though benign, they were close to where her collar is located and they were being irritated by the collar, so it was best to remove them.

We believe that Gabby was abused during the first 5 years of her life, before her recently deceased Mom rescued her from a shelter. Gabby may always be a little sensitive in her mouth area, but if it is just a learned behavior, she may overcome that. She certainly had no problem eating when she came home from the vet! Although dental neglect can often lead to heart disease, the VERY GOOD NEWS is that Gabby's heart is in excellent condition and her health overall is very good. Her little heart is gentle and kind and she will offer the same when she finds her forever home.

Foster mom says that Gabby is a very sweet and calm little girl who eats and sleeps well. She enjoys snuggling into her beds and blankies her favorite relaxation after enjoying the backyard adventures. Gabby hasnt been around small children or cats, but her Foster mom feels she would be okay with children older than 14 years old. Foster Mom is still working on Gabbys house-training and there are noticeable improvements. It appears her accidents may be all anxiety-motivated.

If you think your home would be perfect for Gabby, please submit an adoption application for this sweet senior who is so deserving of a loving forever home.

UPDATED BIO 07/17/2020: Sweet Senior Gabby is settling into her foster home. Her elderly owner passed away in May as a result of complications from COVID-19, and a family member stepped up to care for her. They are moving out of state and cannot take Gabby with them, and when UYR was called - of course we said yes!

Gabby has a bit of separation anxiety and does not like to be left home alone, so for this reason she needs a home where someone is home all the time, and preferably with another dog in the home close to her size and age for companionship. Gabby is not such an enthusiastic walker yet but she does walk nicely on the leash. However, her perfect home would be one where she had a fenced-in yard since she loves to play in the yard, chase lizards and of course, work on her suntan lol! Due to the recent trauma of losing her mom to COVID-19, then being taken in by a relative, and now being moved to a foster home, she needs some reinforcement on her house-training. Gabby has undergone so many changes recently, and Foster Mom is gently working on her house-training, all the time realizing that Gabby is still sad about the changes in her life.

INITIAL BIO 07/12/2020: Sweet Senior Gabby just arrived as our newest little foster dog in Florida. Gabby's original owner passed away in May as a result of complications from COVID-19, and a family member stepped up to care for her. They are moving out of state and cannot take Gabby with them, and when UYR was called - of course we said yes!

Gabby is up-to-date on her vaccinations and appears to be a healthy little girlie. Her perfect home would be with someone that is retired or works from home, as she does not like to be left alone. Gabby would also like the companionship of another dog, close to her size and age, so that she will have a buddy when her owner cannot be home with her. One more thing - Gabby is a native Floridian and she loves to sun bathe lol! Stay tuned to learn more about Gabby as her foster mom gets to know her better.

I am such a pretty and sweet girlie
Florida
Kendra

Kendra is 5-1/2 years old and weighs a little chubby 10.3 lbs. She is being fostered in Jacksonville, FL. Due to Covid-19, all Florida foster dogs must be adopted by Florida residents at this time. No exceptions will be made.

THANK YOU TO KENDRA'S RESCUE ANGELA!

Michelle Pannoni, Debra Bass, Nestor Sanchez, Nestor Sanchez, Nestor Sanchez

UPDATED BIO 07/23/2020: Kendra was initially part of a huge Georgia puppy mill bust 16 months ago. UYR rescued a total of 20 dogs from inhumane conditions where they had lived in small wire crates their whole lives. She spent several months rehabilitating in a UYR foster home and was adopted into a loving home. Sadly, Kendra never really acclimated to life outside the puppy mill where she spent the first 6 years of her life, and suffered severe neglect, both emotional and physical. Many dogs take longer than others to recuperate from the neglectful conditions of a puppy mill. Kendra was reluctantly returned to United Yorkie Rescue by her previous adoptive parents so that she can receive additional training and guidance in how to become a loving companion dog.

Kendra is slowly acclimating and doing much better. She is starting to get comfortable with foster mom and her feline sister Sasha. However, she still has some behavioral and emotional issues that her foster mom is continuing to address. She is still afraid of loud noises, sudden movements and unknown people approaching her. At her last vet visit, she was started on some medication to help with her anxiety, and she hated the pills. She is a smart little girl and got very good at eating the yummy stuff and spitting out the pill. But foster mom keeps coming up with new tricks to hide the pill. She does not get as scared with loud noises and with the sound of rain as much as she did previously.

Kendra is also doing better about not running away when people come to visit. On a recent visit from of foster mom's friends, she actually laid on the floor in the living room. Foster mom thinks it made Kendra feel like one of the girls lol! She will now go outside to do her business and walk around on the grass, so this is a positive thing.

Kendra continues to adjust to life outside the puppy mill. Foster mom reports that there are times she acts happy and playful, but it is brief. The majority of the time she prefers to be alone. She will tolerate being next to her person, but not for extended periods. She does not snuggle or give kisses and does not play with other small dogs or toys. These are companion dog traits that Kendra never had a chance to learn since she was likely born into the puppy mill. It is possible that that these behaviors may not change, but hope springs eternal that with continued love and stability in her life, she may slowly learn to adjust and be a happy little typical yorkie girlie.

Kendra hates the leash and that may not change, so her forever home must have a fenced-in yard. There may come a time that she becomes comfortable with the leash, especially since it will allow her to have so many adventures. Kendras previous adopters would take her out in a doggie stroller Kendra really loved this. She is a sweet girl who unfortunately had a horrible beginning to her life in the puppy mill. Kendra needs a quiet home with a person who understands these behaviors and no children under 14 years and only one other small dog or cat. Are you that special person? If so, Kendra would like to hear from you. If not, please visit the Looking for Love page on our web site for other available dogs. Due to Covid-19 no out of state adoptions.

Sadly, Kendra never really acclimated to life outside the puppy mill where she spent the first 6 years of her life, and suffered severe neglect, both emotional and physical. Many dogs take longer than others to recuperate from the neglectful conditions of a puppy mill.

Kendra was reluctantly returned to United Yorkie Rescue by her previous adoptive parents so that she can receive additional training and guidance in how to become a loving companion dog. She will be shown patience, love, kindness and caring so that she knows she will never be neglected ever again. She will also learn that she can trust people with her comfort and care. She returned to her previous foster home. Kendra remembered this home and within several days she stared to get more comfortable with the house and people. She has improved with some behaviors, but retains the more prevalent puppy mill behaviors and fears, such as excessive fear of loud noises (eg. storms, vacuums, fireworks) - you get the picture. Kendra also reacts negatively with sudden movements. Her favorite place for now is her crate where she sleeps at night and when loud noises are heard. During the day she will use the doggie beds. She is beginning to come towards her foster and progress is slow. Kendra is house-trained if taken outside frequently. She requires a fenced in yard as she is fearful of the leash.

Kendra saw the doggie doctor a few days ago and he was happy with her progress compared to her initial visit 1 years ago. She came out of her crate and was sitting on his lap while he talked with me on the phone. Upon exam, the vet believes Kendra is younger than we originally thought. He believes she is probably closer to 5-1/2 years old! That could be related to her condition at the time of the initial exam. She weighs 10.3 lbs. which is a bit too much and may be contributing to the luxating patellas. Her vaccinations were updated and she also had labs done, and they were perfect. She is being started on medication to help with her anxiety issues. She will need a few weeks of medication management to find the best dosage.

Kendra needs a special person that has a fairly quiet household and patience as her forever parent(s). She will buddy with another small dog but she is not into playing or toys. She is also fine with cats. PLEASE NOTE: Kendra cannot be adopted into a home with children! She will allow a person to pick her up on her terms and will lie calmly near them. She is not a dog that will snuggle since she never had that in her previous puppy mill life, but that could change. Kendra resent the leash and only time will tell if she will get over that behavior, so that is why a fenced-in yard is a must for her. Kendra is a sweetie, but needs a very special person that understands behaviors of former puppy mill dogs. Kendra needs several weeks of medications before she will be ready to be adopted. Are you that special person? If you are, Kendra would like to hear from you. If not, please visit the Looking for Love page on our web site for other available dogs.

INITIAL BIO 06/22/2020: Kendra was initially part of a huge Georgia puppy mill bust 15 months ago. UYR rescued a total of 20 dogs from inhumane condititons where they had lived in small wire crates their whole lives. She spent several months rehabilitating in a UYR foster home and was adopted into a loving home. Sadly, Kendra never really acclimated to life outside the puppy mill where she spent the first 6 years of her life, and suffered severe neglect, both emotional and physical. Many dogs take longer than others to realize that they no longer have to go hungry for days on end, or sleep on the unclean floor on a wire crate where the excrement and urine of the dogs stacked above them will fall on them.

Kendra has been reluctantly returned to United Yorkie Rescue by her adoptive parents so that she can receive additional training and guidance in how to be a loving companion dog. She will be shown patience, love, kindness and caring so that she knows she will never be neglected ever again. She will also learn that she can trust people with her comfort and care. Kendra has a warm comfy bed and regular meals, and will know nothing but love in her foster home.

Kendra's perfect home would have a fenced-in yard, and perhaps a stay-at-home parent. She may like another doggie companion to follow around, but during her time outside the puppy mill, she has not played with toys or with another dog. However, she does like to follow another dog around.

Kendra needs to settle in for a few weeks at her foster home, and be seen by the vet for a well-dog check. Please stay tuned for updates on this sweet girlie.

Foster Mom says I am a real sweetie for sure

I love my foster home
Florida
Sweetie

Sweetie is an adorable little female Terrier Mix who is 3 - 4 years old and weighs 10 lbs. Sweetie is being fostered in Tallahassee, FL. Sweetie is heartworm positive. Due to Covid-19, all Florida foster dogs must be adopted by Florida residents at this time. No exceptions will be made.

THANK YOU TO SWEETIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

THANK YOU TO SWEETIE'S FACEBOOK DONORS!

Karry Rogers, Jill Landers, JT Tara King, Anne Hicks

UPDATED BIO 07/26/2020: Sweetie was surrendered by her owner who was unable to care for her due to health issues of her own. Sadly, Sweetie was also not given heartworm preventative in her previous home, and she is heartworm positive.

Sweetie is a delightful little girlie who loves loves LOVES human attention! She is so very loving and is a smart little cookie - she is already house-trained to pee-pee pads. She is learning that if she does her business outside, she will get a treat, so that is a work in progress. She has realized that going outside is great F-U-N and now scampers to the door when Foster Mom asks her if she wants to go out.

Sweetie is very obedient and has such a gentle little nature and is full of personality. She still isn't interested in toys at this time, and may have never been offered toys in her previous homes, but her Foster Mom is engaging her every day with squeaky toys, so hopefully play time will come soon. Right now, the sound of squeaky toys is scary, but she is also sensitive to loud noises, especially thunder. She is wearing a Thunder Shirt which is helpful during thunderstorms that happen daily in Florida. It is hoped that she will soon become de-sensitized to the thunder storms.

Sweetie gets along with the resident dogs in the home although her humans are the most important companions for her. She has not engaged in play with the other dogs as of yet but they havent approached her either. She may enjoy one other dog close to her age and size as a companion, but that is to be seen. In her former home, she was one of five dogs in the home, and she was bullied by another dog only slightly larger than her that had a more enthusiastic personality, so a home with a calm, well-mannered dog may be best for her. She would also be happy being the only dog in the home since she craves human interaction.

Sweetie would be happiest in a home where she wasn't left alone for more than four (4) hours. She is very much tuned into her persons, and she would be very sad to be left alone for longer periods. We don't know if Sweetie has been around children in the past, but foster mom feels she would do well in a home with children 12+ years. It's a treat to see that only the mention of her name makes her tail wag so fast it's a blur!

She has already begun the treatment protocol established by the American Heartworm Society. She must remain in her foster home until her heartworm treatment is completed. Her first Immiticide injection is on 08/03, followed by the second & third injections on 09/03. Immiticide is an arsenic-containing compound so Sweetie must be kept very quiet with crate rest and restricted exercise during her treatment. She will have a heartworm test 30 days after her last injection and if negative, she will be ready for adoption around the middle of October.

Please don't forget about Sweetie. Sweetie's heartworm treatment will be approximately $800, so we are reaching out to our angel donors and asking for donations to cover this large unexpected expense. UYR would never turn away a potential foster dog that has tested positive for heartworms, and your donation(s) will enable us to continue to rescue and treat other incoming foster dogs that may be heartworm positive. If you are unable to donate, please say some prayers that Sweetie will be able to endure the rigorous heartworm treatment without complications.

Sweetie had a dental yesterday and her teeth are sparkly white. She is such a polite little girlie who only wants to be next to her person and give them tons of kisses. If Sweetie participated in a Doggie Kissing Booth Challenge, she would win hands-down! She is shy when first meeting someone, but warms up easily. She walks well on a leash and is improving with her house-training skills.

Sweetie is a delightful little doggie who is very obedient and has such a gentle little nature and personality. She isnt interested in toys at this time, and may have never been offered toys in her previous homes, but that could change as time goes on. She gets along fine with the resident dogs in the home. House-training is going good now that she understands where it is and is not an appropriate place to do her business. She is a smart little girl and wants to please her person, so she learns very quickly.

Although Sweetie will not be medically cleared for adoption until October, if you are interested in adopting her, please contact her foster mom for more details, or submit an adoption application which will be held until she has completed her heartworm treatment.

Sweeties heartworm treatment will be approximately $800, so we are reaching out to our angel donors and asking for donations to cover this large unexpected expense. UYR would never turn away a potential foster dog that has tested positive for heartworms, and your donation(s) will enable us to continue to rescue and treat other incoming foster dogs that may be heartworm positive. If you are unable to donate, please say some prayers that Sweetie will be able to endure the rigorous heartworm treatment.

UPDATED BIO 06/03/2020: Sweetie has only been in UYR for several days now she was surrendered by her owner who was unable to continue to care for her due to health issues of her own. Sweetie came with no history of vaccinations and no vetting in the past year in the previous owners home, so she had a big day at the vet yesterday getting a thorough exam and having all her vaccinations brought up-to-date.

Sadly, Sweetie was also not given heartworm preventative in her previous home, and she is heartworm positive. This is unfortunate as now this precious little angel has to endure months of heartworm treatment and strict confinement and crate rest. She has no outward signs of heartworms, so that is a good thing and she has already begun the protocol established by the American Heartworm Society. She must remain in her foster home until her heartworm treatment is completed, which is expected to be the first two weeks of October.

Sweetie is a delightful little doggie who loves-loves-loves giving kisses to her persons. She is very obedient and has such a gentle little nature and personality. She isnt interested in toys at this time, and may have never been offered toys in her previous homes, but that could change as time goes on. She gets along fine with the resident dogs in the home.

Although Sweetie will not be cleared for adoption until October, if you are interested in adopting her, please contact her foster mom for more details, or submit an adoption application which will be held until she has completed her heartworm treatment.

INITIAL BIO 05/30/2020: Sweetie just arrived into UYR today she was sadly surrendered by her owner who was unable to continue to care for her due to health issues of her own. Sweetie is just that - a real sweetie who is a bit timid, but is active and loves to give kisses. Theres so much more to know about her, and she will see the vet on Tuesday to have her vaccinations updated, and have a thorough exam. Stay tuned to learn more about this little girlie.

Toto

MEET TOTO. Toto is a sweet little senior male yorkie who is 13 years old and weighs an emaciated 9 lbs. Toto is being fostered in Dunedin, FL.

INITIAL BIO 08/03/2020: Little Toto was surrendered to UYR by another rescue group who felt that he would have a better chance at adoption by being with a yorkshire terrier breed rescue group. He was surrendered by his owner to them just a few days ago, and little is known about this little fella. We do know that he is very underweight and his teeth are horribly infected, and that may be why he he so underweight. He does have a good appetite, but is not gaining weight. His normal healthy weight is 14 lbs.

Toto will see the vet for labs and a thorough exam tomorrow, so please stay tuned to learn more about this sweet little boy.


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

Lucky
Illinois
Lucky

Meet Lucky. Lucky is an estimated 9-10-year-old, schnauzer mix, little male who weighs 6 lbs and is being fostered near Beach Park, IL.

Due to COVID-19 at this time ALL ADOPTIONS must be in the state the dog is being fostered

UPDATE BIO: 07/24/20. Lucky is doing great since his dental even though he lost all of his teeth. They were infected and decayed, so we wont have to worry about him suffering in pain due to that any longer! We are working on housebreaking and Lucky is doing very well. I keep the belly band on him in the house as he still wants to lift his leg once in a while. He doesnt like the belly band but is learning to always go outdoors as his belly band pads have been dry the past few days.

Yesterday, he saw the geese outside and had a fit because he was not able to get on the other side of the fence to chase them! He is a little character for sure! Living in a semi-country environment is full of surprises and fun things except foster mommy doesnt let him do everything he wants.

On August 7th he will have is neuter surgery. We still have a ways to go but Lucky is very smart and loving. He will make a great little companion for some Lucky person. Ive had a lot of inquiries from people who might want to adopt him. If you are interested in any of our available dogs, please complete an adoption application. Any questions can be directed to Luckys foster mom, yorkiefostermom04@gmail.com

UPDATE BIO: 07/18/20. My little foster, Lucky, had his dental today. His teeth were so bad that many fell out, the remaining few were extracted, leaving him with no teeth. He is very out of it tonight and sleeping. He did eat a little and kept it down. He has antibiotics and pain meds for next 5 days. Once we get him recovered, he will be neutered.

I know this little guy is looking forward to a great life with a wonderful family. He is so sweet and loving! If you think he might be your perfect little companion, please complete an adoption application to be considered. Once this little cutie is fully recovered, I have a feeling everyone will want him! He has been in pain for way too long and not able to live a normal life. He deserves the best and I will do all I can to make that happen! Any questions can be emailed to his foster mommy at yorkiefostermom04@gmail.com

UPDATE BIO. 07/13/20. Lucky is a sweet, lovable little guy, all six pounds of him! He loves relaxing on the patio or snuggling next to you on the sofa. He is feeling much better now that his antibiotic is working on his infected teeth. He will feel even better once those nasty rotten teeth are gone and his mouth is healed. He gets along well with other dogs, not sure about cats, but he seems to be a pretty calm and relaxed little guy.

He is looking for his forever home. He still needs to be neutered and needs a couple more vaccinations once the dental is completed. He will make a wonderful little companion for someone. Please complete an adoption application if you are interested in this little love bug!

UPDATE BIO: 07/05/20. Lucky saw the vet today and received a few vaccinations. He is a very sick little boy, and the vet said he was in a great deal of pain with a mouthful of infected teeth, so he will be on an antibiotic for the next two weeks. He has a heart murmur but it doesnt seem to be causing any problems at the present time. Once we have the infection cleared up in his mouth, we will get his dental done and the vet said he will more than likely lose all of his teeth.

On the bright side, Lucky will not have to worry about bad or infected teeth any longer, and we have had many dogs in the rescue without any teeth who live great lives. I gave him soft food which he has been eating very well and his first dose of antibiotic. He is sleeping peacefully and hopefully will start feeling better soon! Lucky is a very sweet little boy and he will be a great companion! I will update his bio as he makes progress.

INITIAL BIO: 07/02/20. Lucky is a little 6 lb. male Yorkie who just came into our rescue today. He is presently with his foster family in Beach Park, IL, close to the Wisconsin border. We are not sure of his age but we are thinking possibly 9 to 10 years old. He is a sweet boy in dire need of a dental, neuter and all vaccinations. He will be seeing the vet on Saturday to get some of his vaccinations and everything else scheduled.

If you think he might be a good fit for your family, please watch for updates on his progress. Any questions can be directed to his foster mommy at yorkiefostermom04@gmail.com. He is going to make someone a great little companion!


To date we've spent $2369.10 on Lucky's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $479.30 in donations.

NO ADOPTIONS OUT-OF-STATE DUE TO COVID-19

THANK YOU TO TINKERBELLE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Mary Hunton, Glenys Cespedes

Initial Bio 06/22/2020 Meet Tinkerbelle she is an estimated 10 year old Yorkie being fostered in Nashville, TN. Tinkerbelle has hearing problems due to recurrent chronic ear infections that have left her with cauliflower ear. She is being treated for this condition and it seems to thankfully be improving. this is an issue that will need to be monitored closely. We believe that she can hear better now that the condition is improving. She is house trained and will let you know when she wants something by barking at you. She is very good at getting her point across. She follows her foster mom everywhere she goes and is definitely a Velcro baby! She is sooo sweet and loves to go on walks and lay on the couch next to her foster mom and dad. She gets along pretty well with her foster brother and sisters but will let them know if she is not in the mood to mess with them. Tinkerbelle would be fine in a home with or without another dog however children would not be a good fit for her. She was just spayed last week and brought current on shots. She will go back to the dogtor this week for a check-up on for her ear condition. Please stay tuned for updates on this precious girl!

Meet Bosco. Bosco is 10-years-old and weighs 13 lbs. He is being fostered in Austin, TX. DUE TO COVID CONCERNS, ONLY TEXAS APPLICANTS WILL BE CONSIDERED.

UPDATE BIO: 07/29/20. Precious Boscoe came into rescue after living a life that no baby should have lived. He was attacked by a larger dog, suffered a horrific eye injury which left his eye paralyzed, and he lost all of his lower jaw, all without medical care. Not only did he endure this a few years ago, he was also left behind with one bowl of food after his owners up and moved. Coming into United Yorkie Rescue, Bosco is now in a quiet safe loving home where food is never a worry, dogs will not attack him, and there are plenty of belly rubs full of love to enjoy.

Last week Bosco underwent surgery and we removed his sightless damaged and weepy eye. This past weekend he started with an infection around his sutures which we have added additional antibiotics to, and are now running cultures to stay ahead of this. This is not uncommon with an eye that was already compromised with infections needing 4 medications, 4 times a day. Bosco is also learning how to navigate with the cone, but he still cannot figure out how to burrow under his blanket without a little help from his foster momma. While Bosco heals from this enucleation of his right eye, we will soon address Bosco's remaining eye. He has a cataract in his remaining good eye;and has been told he is a candidate for the correction. He has adapted very well with his limited vision. He may need someone to keep an eye out for him at the top of stairs and around open water, otherwise he acts very sighted. We pray that his future will hold hope for cataract surgery and will become a reality. In the meantime, this brave little boy is not letting life's little problems stop him from continuing to enjoy this new found life.

Bosco is such a gentle soul who just wants only to be close to his human. He's happy to snooze on the couch if you're nearby, especially if he can get scratches behind his ears or on his belly. He especially likes to snuggle up with his foster mom at bedtime. He also loves going for walks and meeting other dogs, and playing with his squeaky stuffed elephant toy. What's not to love about him! If you feel you have the perfect home and heart for Bosco, please email foster mom at uyr.atx@gmail.com and fill out an application at www.uyr.us. Donations for Bosco can also be made on our website at www.uyr.us. Thank you!!

INITIAL BIO: 06/25/20. Meet Bosco! Hes a 10 year old 13-lb boy being fostered in Austin. Hes been through a lot but hes super sweet and super friendly. Boscoe was left alone for days at a time after his owner passed away. He was left with a big bowl of food each time, so when he was first rescued he was so overweight he could barely move. He was rescued 2 months ago, and hes doing much better! You can see from his photos hes much slimmer and he gets around great.

Bosco has cataracts, but the vet says hes a good candidate for surgery. He cant see much but that doesnt slow him down! He enjoys going for walks and just needs a little bit of help to avoid curbs. Hes happy to snuggle up next to you, especially if you give him some skritches. He also loves to make a blanket nest and curl up there. Hes going to the vet this week to get some help with his allergies, so check back soon for an update.


To date we've spent $1417.42 on Bosco's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $835.00 in donations.

Diagnosed at age 1 with a significant liver shunt, the owner of Bridget was expecting a child and made a choice to treat this baby holistically. Let me please make a statement here. Although some feel they are doing the right thing while trying to save a life, and I have to respect any act of love, know that nothing is going to fix an open flow of toxic blood except surgery and intervention with proper medications.

This precious sad little baby girl was miraculously sent to us just at the most perfect time. Within 5 minutes of having this baby in the car she was given life altering medications to help her neuro seizures, and to bind toxins flowing through her body, all while being driven to the ER to be certain this emaciated, skin and bones baby girl was out of danger. Luckily, one of the top surgeons we use for these sick shunt babies was there and gave us good news regarding a surgery approval. Bridget is a fighter.

For 2 years her frail body has survived being fed fruits and vegetables and given enzymes, but today her healing begins! This morning she's having a few more blood tests completed to get current bile acids etc. We will get her physically stable the next few weeks with good liver diet food, pedialyte to aid in her crazy electrolytes and meds, then finally give her this life saving surgery to cut off the heavy flow of the toxins. Bridget need your prayers for her continued strength. Donations can be made for United Yorkie Rescue Bridget at www.uyr.us. Bless you all!!


To date we've spent $771.34 on Bridget's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1122.00 in donations.

Crystal

Crystal is a very sweet 10 year old, 18 pound Yorkie girl being fostered in Fort Worth, TX. DUE TO COVID-19, NO OUT OF STATE ADOPTIONS WILL BE CONSIDERED.

THANK YOU TO CRYSTAL'S RESCUE ANGELS!

UPDATE BIO. 05/19/20. Once again, meet United Yorkie Rescue Crystal. Crystal is a 9 to 10 yr old, 16lb owner surrender. Her prior adoptive family loved this baby so much. Sadly, the family, both daddy and momma, are dealing with major critical health issues and Covid's shutdown of resources. Sadly, affording new tests for this little girl with ongoing skin and eye issues have left this little girl is dire need of medical assistance due to her own ongoing issues. The decision was made to surrender this baby so that care could continue. A year and 3 months ago Crystal was rescued from a horrible puppy mill with the Fortunate Four as we lovingly called them. She came into rescue then with life threatening pyometra requiring immediate emergency surgery, a horrible skin infection referred to as a MRSP (a bacterial resistant skin infection) and with mammary cancer in which we removed her entire chains. Bunny, who is in my care as a Forever Ours with metastatic cancer, was also from that same hell mill that we successfully had shut down a few months later. These girls not only still suffer with ongoing medical issues, but also share a lot of emotional scars that come from living their life in the mill.

Crystal was immediately seen by my awesome vet at Refinery Road and a medical plan was put into place to once again to address her ongoing skin issues. Tests have been sent to A&M for answers. Skin scraping biopsy, cytocentesis to look for possible cortisol in the urine, a first look for possible Cushing's and a complete blood panel to look for diabetes and or possible thyroid issues with a TSH test. Crystal had previously had great medical attention with visits to oncology and internal medicine prior to her adoption. Hopefully we will get answers since her life was in a healthier environment outside of a crate life and filled with love. Breeding definitely takes it toll on these precious babies!

Please continue to support our babies at UYR. I know times are truly hard for us all with this horrible pandemic, but we cannot stop doing what these babies need...rescue needs to go on. Donations can be made at www.uyr.us. We thank you and bless you all

4/5/19: Crystal broke out in horrific hives and is being treated with another medication and a microbial mousse for her skin since her MRSP infection medication just ended. The oncologist who did her emergency surgery with her MRSP infection thinks she's doing great as does her regular vet. After a week of antibiotic to clear up her hives, she can have her dental and be finally be ready for adoption. Crystal is still very shy with humans until you get her next to you. Then she's just so loving and loves the belly rubs. She absolutely ADORES any and all of the dogs... she was sadly, most definitely an amazing mommy for the mill. She will be a wonderful addition to the right family.

3/27/19 Update: We have reached an amazing milestone...sweet puppy mill Crystal is finally healed and looking for her furever home. Crystal is an estimated 9yr old, 14lb sweet girl. We go for our final vet appointment this week. This angel has had quite a journey after her rescue. She survived life threatening pyometra, mammary cancer and a MRSP infection. These were all on top of her eye infections, skin, ears, and broken teeth. This baby girl, I also feel, has been physically abused. There are times I will reach to pet her or call her and she will cower which just breaks my heart. This is very typical of a mill baby without human interaction, but they learn that love is just amazing. Crystal is starting to crave love and absolutely loves to snuggle in the bed and get her belly rubs. She loves all the fosters and she gets sooo excited when a new one comes in. She immediately wants to go be mommy to them and play. She is such a funny girl too as when she goes to play with the others, she gets tickled on her own and jumps all around which is the cutest thing to see. Crystal deserves a home that will be patient and loving with her. Being a mill baby, she may need to re-settle into your home, but once settled she's such a blessing to have. The perfect home for Crystal would be one that is patient and allows her just to blossom. She loves walks, being outside, riding in the car and just being with her human and buddies. Crystal would love to have another pup to be her friend. She gets along fine with cats in the home as well. If you feel you can give this baby her Cinderella happy-ever-after, please fill out an application or contact foster mom at yorkieforstertx@gmail.com.

2/28/19 Update: Wanted to give everyone an update on sweet Crystal of the Fortunate Four Mill rescue. Crystal went in to have both mammary chains removed on the 15th. Carcinoma was discovered in 2 of her previously excised mammary tumors from prior emergency surgery for her pyometra, so the best cure was this type of removal, as there were many more tumors in both chains. Crystal is home now as of the 20th and doing well. Slowly this angel is coming into herself. The happy moments are just incredible to see as I have watched her attempt to play with one of her fur siblings, try Every bed in the house and rolling on her back and talk as if to say, "this feels soooo good"!! Once again we need your help! This was a costly medical expense, but rescue comes with a price and not with cute bows. Crystal is just an adorable love bug as are her other fur siblings, please help us so we can continue our processes by using the donate button below.

2/9/19 Update: The horror unfolds! Here we have a current picture of Crystal who is one of the Fortunate Four that was recently rescued from the puppy mill last week. Crystal had emergency spay surgery immediately upon rescue due to her pus-filled uterus. The vet also took only 2 0f many concerning mammary tumors off one of her tits to be biopsied while she was under anesthesia. She has multiple tumors in both chains. This new picture shows a sweet angel baby after her first medicated bath on Friday. Sadly, what lies inside sweet Crystal is heartbreaking news that we are working with at the present. These results came back in as tumor #1 being carcinoma and tumor #2 as a complex carcinoma. She was immediately called in for a chest x-ray to see if we have metastasized within the chest cavity and lungs...thankfully, those came back clear. Crystal has bacterial skin infection, bilateral ear infections, loss of tear production in her eyes due to untreated eye infections, a mouth full of horrible decay and now mammary cancer. We have saved her life by performing her pyometra surgery, so now it's time to continue our fight to save her. Crystal will undergo surgery this upcoming week. This will be major invasive surgery to remove both mammary chains to make certain we don't miss margins with this cancer. Possibly her dental can be done at that time as well, we will see. Please continue to support us with these horrifically abused angels.

2/5/19: Meet Crystal, one of 3 breeding females recently rescued from puppy mill. She was in distress and taken immediately for care. She was diagnosed with pyometria, a life-threatening condition which is basically an abscessed uterus. This is caused by over-breeding and lack of medical care. She literally had pus draining from her vagina. Crystal has flea and tick infestation, extremely long nails, hair loss, bacterial skin infection, mammary tumors on both sides, engorged teats indicative of recent nursing. Her teeth are literally falling out.

Crystal was taken to surgery for immediate hysterectomy for pyometria. Two mammary tumors looked suspicious and were sent for pathology before proceeding with the remaining tumors. She is recovering well.

Crystal is only one of the Fortunate Four. Please consider helping with her care by using the donate button below and sharing her story.


To date we've spent $11850.58 on Crystal's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $4995.55 in donations.

Ginger
Texas
Ginger formerly Charly

Meet Ginger, who is a 3-year-old, 7 pound Yorkie. She is being fostered in Leander, TX.

Due to COVID-19 at this time ALL ADOPTIONS must be in the state the dog is being fostered

THANK YOU TO GINGER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta

Initial Bio 07/09/20. Meet Ginger, one of team Texas' newest rescues. Ginger comes to us a surrender from a caring soul who found her roaming the streets. Estimated to be around 3 years old and weighing in at slim 7.5 lbs., Ginger was not suited to live on her own. She was taken in to UYR with open loving arms.

As you can imagine for a little girl on her own in the wild, she is a little underweight, was infested with fleas, and suffered a terrible skin infection with hair loss due to the fleas. She has seen the Dogtor once, but her blood work came back a little irregular and will be rechecked on 7/10/20. Amazingly this was the only ailment for Ginger. No worms, parasites, or heartworm! Her teeth are clean, but will need a spay.

Ginger is the most loving little girl to her humans and her new foster mates. She is mostly potty trained and would prefer to go outside, but has had a couple accidents when not supervised. She definitely gets along with the other pups in the house, but really prefers to interact and love her humans. She gives sweet kisses, greets at the door with utmost enthusiasm, and loves to snuggle in bed all night. Ginger has been groomed and will be ready for her new forever family in the coming weeks. Get your application in now to be considered! Use the link below to apply or contact foster mom and dad using the email below with any questions. uyryorkielovetx@yahoo.com

UPDATE 3/7/20: Calling all caring and compassionate souls that are eager to make a difference in a very special and needy puppy's life. I have been neglected far too long due to my prior owners ongoing health problems and am in need of a special someone that has a huge heart and wants to be a savior to a very special little boy. Sorry for the wait on my update, but I have been one busy little puppy. So my first vet visit was a doozie! Remember how foster mom and dad said I had some tooth decay; well they weren't wrong. I lost every single tooth when I had my first dental since maybe forever. But I am surprisingly not fazed. I can even keep my tongue in my mouth...well most of the time! I still really love the soft food I am getting, but I occasionally raid the kibble bowl when it's available. It's great that my appetite is good, as I still need to put on some weight to be my best healthy self. I also had to go under the knife twice, once to remove a large growth that thankfully was not cancer, and again for exploratory surgery to find my remaining testicle so I could be neutered. But success, the dogtor found and removed it. I have now healed and settled down and am beginning to behave like a perfect gentleman. I absolutely love to be next to my human. Whether it is on foster moms' lap while she does her hair and makeup, or snuggled up next to mom or pop on the couch during resting time. And I love to sleep under the covers in bed with my people. I sleep through the night without making a peep or bothering the other two pups in bed. I get along with my foster siblings and love on any visitors that stop by. I will go outside to do my business, but still need a little help on my inside manners when no one is home. My ideal home would be with adults that possibly work from home or are retired. I am special and need someone equally as special that want to make all the difference in the world to me. So like Foreigner said "I want to know what love is.....and I want you to show me".

Initial Bio 2/2/20: Hi everyone, I would like to take a moment to introduce myself, my name is Teddy and Im about ten years old. Unfortunately, my loving owner was no longer able to take care of me due to serious ongoing health problems over the past four years. So they surrendered me to the United Yorkie Rescue in hopes of me finding a great new forever home. Foster Mom & Dad picked me up yesterday so we are still getting to know each other. All of this change is a little scary for me and I know it will take time for me to adjust, but as long as I have a soft place to snuggle and relax and lots of soft food Im a pretty happy guy. I had a trip to the emergency vet last night due to some pain caused by my terribly decaying teeth. The vet gave us some medication that is helping me feel better until I can get into see the regular vet first thing on Monday morning. My foster Mom and Dad are worried about me because Im a little underweight, but I love the soft food they are feeding me here as I did not do very well with hard food because of my teeth, but hopefully we will get those fixed soon. I will also need to be neutered once the vet says Im healthy enough. The future is looking bright for me. We will update everyone after my Monday appointment. If you would like more info or would like to meet , contact my foster parents at uyryorkielovetx@yahoo..com.

6/9/20 UPDATE: Sweet little Toby was seen with Internal Med today to discuss his nuclear testing that was recently performed. It appears that Toby has a very rare condition. Dr. Miller can only find two other patients with the same condition. Basically he feels Toby was probably born with a congenital shunt. Over the course of his short life, his body has produced multiple micro shunts which resemble looking at worm-like fibers. Sadly, he is not a candidate for surgery and will need lifetime monitoring. As of today, we will need to recheck his liver values closely as the toxins will destroy the liver over time. We will also need to watch for crystalized stones to form as we must move his diet to a low protein diet to protect the liver. We are on medications to aid in binding the toxins and keeping this precious baby protected. We will do this while adding what is necessary, for as long as we can, keeping him healthy as we go forward. As of now, Toby is just a happy little boy and toxins seem to be in check. Please know this testing is quite expensive at this moment, so your love and donations have been and will be so appreciated! Please share. Please keep Toby in your prayers as we go through this process in his precious life. God bless you!

6/2/20 UPDATE: Sadly the excitement of finding an operable shunt has been squashed as this little boy with UNITED YORKIE RESCUE has acquired many shunts. It is possible this started as a birth defect but over time he has acquired an intricate tortuous amount of shunts that are not operable and are critical now to keeping his liver alive. In Toby's case, it has been recommended that he receive a biopsy of his liver. He will meet with Dr. Miller, with Internal Med on Monday, and we will proceed with further testing to make sure he gets full diagnosis. He is currently receiving the proper medications to protect his liver. Please keep prayers coming for this adorable baby and as always, donations can be made using the link below. Donations are so needed for these sick babies. I will update everyone on Monday as to our next step with this precious baby! Meanwhile, he loves to go with foster momma and snuggles are a must!

5/21/20. BIO UPDATE: Precious UNITED YORKIE RESCUE Toby just wanted to snuggle after his long day of nuclear sedated testing. Sweet baby is dripping urine too. We are monitoring that. This maybe due to the surgical removal of a large stone prior and a combo of todays anesthesia.

We know we do have a liver shunt so prayers needed that we are operable!! He will meet with the surgeon Tuesday early am. This process is extremely expensive for our rescue so of course we ask for your help. Please donate at www.uyr.us, share and send prayers for this angel!! Bless you all!

5/22/20 UPDATE: This precious little UNITED YORKIE RESCUE Toby, is back in rescue. Sadly, our little 5lb, 3yr old is ill with a dire medical condition. Toby originally came into rescue as an owner surrender. Upon his arrival it became evident he was having issues urinating. He was immediately taken to the vet and the next day underwent emergency surgery for removal of a huge bladder stone. Toby healed nicely, he was put on a special diet an adopted to a very loving owner. Sadly, upon a recheck for Toby she was given the horrible news that his liver values were off and upon further testing, bile acids were high. We now know this baby most likely has a portal liver shunt. We have taken Toby to the vet to start proper medication which binds the toxins that are not being filtered through his malfunctioning liver, and we will now proceed with confirming this shunt through a nuclear scintigraphy with immediate surgery to follow. This testing and surgery is extremely expensive and can run upwards of $6k to $8k. We need your help please! We have recently rescued quite a few with unique medical needs, but even with the state the world is in, rescue needs to continue. Donations can be made using the link below.

BIO UPDATE! 04/22/20. Precious little Toby did well with his surgery! He stayed overnight and most of this day for pain managment, and now is finally on his way home with foster momma.

We are so blessed with an amazing vet in the Austin area at Blockhouse Creek Vet Clinic for the great care they gave to this little nugget. Now, we wait for results of the composition of this huge stone so Toby can start a diet to protect him from developing any more in the future.

Again, your donations are so very much appreciated at this terrible time in all of our lives. Bless you all. Please take a moment to donate or share and please enjoy a new attached picture!

UPDATE 4-/21/20: Precious 3yr, 5 lb Toby began displaying distress and pain today and is now at the vet's getting prepped for surgery. His little bladder has been blocked by a large stone and he was in immense pain by the time his foster momma arrived at the vet. We know this procedure will be costly (approx $2000) so please donate what you can and share for this angel using the Donate Button below. Bless you all and thank you for loving sweet Toby!!

INITIAL BIO. 04/21/20. Toby is a very sweet and tiny boy, weighing in at 5 pounds. He is absolutely beautiful with gorgeous silver fur, chocolate socks and dark ear tips. He has the face of an angel, and he looks like he is smiling. He loves to cuddle, is good in the car, prefers to always be in a lap no matter where he is, and sleeps through the night.

Toby is currently awaiting bladder surgery and will need time to heal before he is ready for his new home. Stay tuned for more information on Toby's progress!

POOH BEAR BIO 7-9-20

My name is Pooh Bear and I am around 4 years old and 8 lbs. I was found as a stray and not claimed so the nice people at United Yorkie Rescue took me in to take care of me. I will not be available for adoption until after my spa day and vet check up on August 12. I have been with my foster family for one week now and I love it here. I have two other doggies to play with but they are a little scared of me since they dont know me well. I am very quiet, love being pet and cuddling with foster mom on her lap. I ride quietly in the car, eat and sleep good too. I am working on my house training skills as I dont tell foster mom when I have to potty outside. Stay tuned for more updates as they become available.
