I am a handsome little puppy

I am enjoying my foster home
Florida
Bentley

MEET BENTLEY. Bentley is a sweet little male yorkie who is only 14 months old and weighs 7 lbs. Bentley is being fostered in St. Augustine, 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 BENTLEY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Phillip L

UPDATED BIO 05/27/2020: Bentley was sadly surrendered by his owner due a relocation in his work situation. Bentley has only been in his foster home for a few days and he and Foster Mom are still getting to know one another. The most important thing to Foster Mom is that little Bentley has been in 4 homes already at his very young age of 14 months due to extenuating family circumstances in his prior homes. His current foster home is his 5th . UYR and his Foster Mom have to make sure that his forever home will truly be forever and ever. Foster Mom will make no exceptions on what she feels is the perfect forever home for this sweet little fella.

Bentley has shown that he is quite the barker, so an apartment or condo situation would not be a good home environment. He is wonderful on walks and loves them so much - as long as there are no distractions or interaction of any sort. On his walks he gets very agitated upon the sight of anything on wheels - bikes, golf carts, cars, etc. He barks and lunges and is just terribly frightened and full of anxiety. He also demonstrates this behavior with people that are encountered on his walks. Foster Mom has noticed that in the few days he has been in his foster home, this behavior has improved greatly but this is a work in progress. The ultimate goal is for Foster Mom to continue to work with Bentley on the anxiety that neighborhood walks create. Bentley needs a fenced-in yard in his forever home, so only potential adopters with a fenced-in yard will be considered at this time so that he can enjoy the outdoors without the stress and anxiety that he is currently experiencing on walks in the neighborhood.

Bentley would be happiest if he were the only dog in his forever home. This little guy has gone through a lot of disruption in being moved around so much and he really needs and deserves the full attention of his new parents and not shared attention. Bentley would also do best with at least one stay-at-home parent.

Heres the wonderful things about little Bentley. He is a total love bug to his Foster Mom and the friends that Foster Mom have introduced him to. He just loves to sit on your lap and be with you all of time. He could lounge on Foster Moms lap all day. Bentley is very young and needs a home that can be his forever home for at least 14-16 years.

Please contact Bentleys Foster Mom for any additional information about this adorable little guy that is just waiting for his forever family.

IMPORTANT THINGS TO NOTE:

1) Bentley needs to be an only dog in his home.

2) Bentley needs at least one stay-at-home parent.

3) A fenced-in yard is a must for this little fella, as he is a young puppy who is very active and needs lots of exercise.

INITIAL BIO 05/23/2020: Bentley was sadly surrendered by his owner due a relocation in his work situation. This little boy has already been in 4 homes in his short lifetime due to extenuating family circumstances.

He is a very sweet, active puppy who loves life, loves to run around in the yard, and loves attention from his person(s). Due to so many moves, this little fella has not had much consistency in his house-training so his foster mom will be working with him on this. His perfect home would be one where there is at least one stay-at-home parent to continue with his house-training. There is so much more to learn about little Bentley, but one thing is for sure due to his very young age, he needs a home and family that can be his forever home and family for at least 14-16 years. A fenced-in yard is a must for this little fella, as he is a young puppy who is very active and needs lots of exercise.


To date we've spent $0 on Bentley's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $300.00 in donations.

I will be beautiful again soon.

I am sad. You can see my bones.
Florida
Brodie

This little guy is Brodie. He is a beautiful Yorkie Mix who weighs only 4.10 very skinny pounds. Brodie is 6 years old. He is being fostered in Leesburg, 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 BRODIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Robert Finamore, Charlene Newbold, Sandy Pagnotta, Jill Schenkel, Robin Taylor, Linda Worsham, Ilene Rand, Maria Scheer, Ami Thomason

Initial bio 5/22/20 Brodie was brought to the shelter clinic for triage and seized by animal control when they saw the condition he was in. His owners had neglected him terribly. He is so severely underweight to the point of being emaciated. He was also infested with fleas all over his body, causing some major hair loss. Brodie is mobile, but because he is so malnourished, he is wobbly and his gait is somewhat unsteady. The shelter gave him a Capstar immediately for the fleas and knew he needed to go to a rescue right away. That is when United Yorkie Rescue stepped in and without question took this tiny, dreadfully thin, fellow into their care.

The first thing Brodie got upon arriving at his foster home was a nice warm bed and a bowl of food. He gobbled that food down in less than a minute. He will be fed small meals several times a day until he is at a good weight. Right now, Brodie is very calm and quiet. It is obvious he doesn't feel very well and has little energy.

Brodie has already seen the vet. He had a complete physical exam, bloodwork, and a check for possible parasites. Brodie is half the body weight he should be. He should weigh at least 8 to 9 pounds. You can see and feel every bone in his body, even his hip sockets are protruding. His rib cage and backbone are visible and you can count every bone. He is being fed puppy food, which is higher in calories than adult dog food and just what he needs. He has luxating patellas on his back legs. Thankfully, he does not need surgery.

Brodie is heartworm and fecal negative and his bloodwork was good, thank goodness. He is anemic and will be on a high dose of vitamins for a least a month or more. Brodie will go back to the vet in a month for a recheck of his weight. His vet would like to see him up to at least 6 pounds by then. We are going to do everything we can to make that happen.

At this time because of his physical condition Brodie cannot be adopted into a home with children.

This little guy seems so sweet. We will do everything we can to take care of him and get him healthy and happy. We plan on having a big party on June 24th to celebrate Brodie turning 6 years old and being a healthy, happy pup. Come back very soon for more on Brodie. And as always, your donations toward Brodies care would be so appreciated. Remember we can't save them without you.


To date we've spent $262.80 on Brodie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $339.42 in donations.

I am a yorkie wannabe - ummmmmm, a parti-poodle mix. I am cute.

I am learning proper puppy manners in my foster home
Florida
Dreyfus

MEET DREYFUS. He is a Parti-Poodle mix puppy who is estimated to be around 2 years old. Dreyfus weighs 12 lbs and is being fostered in Palm Coast, 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 DREYFUS' RESCUE ANGELS!

Debbi Driscoll, David Frischkorn, RoseMarie Yerzy

UPDATED BIO 06/04/2020: Dreyfus is a gorgeous 2 year old 12 lb parti-poodle mix. He found himself in a shelter at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. Dreyfus was adopted out over a month ago, but has been returned to us since he needs more work on his puppy manners.

Dreyfus does suffer from separation anxiety. He has been re-evaluated by his veterinarian and has been put on doggie anti-anxiety medicine. He is working with a trainer to get him the additional help he needs to perfect his “I’m a good puppy” manners.

We have determined that Dreyfus doesn’t hear perfectly. His foster mom is working with both verbal and hand signals to teach Dreyfus his commands. He is a champion snuggler, rides well in a car and gets along with the other doggies in his foster home. Bonus, he’s almost house-trained.

Just like a human child, Dreyfus has entered the terrible 2's. Dreyfus’s perfect home would include a fenced yard and at least one stay-at-home owner who can continue to work on his puppy manners. Dreyfus is not good with young children or grandchildren.

PLEASE NOTE: NO CHILDREN under the age of 14 years old. No exceptions made, so please don't ask.

UPDATED BIO 05/21/2020: Dreyfus was rescued from an animal shelter several months ago. His owners never came for him and when the shelter put out a notice to its rescue partners that they were filling up due to COVID-19, UYR stepped up to rescue Dreyfus even though he was not a yorkie or yorkie mix. Dreyfus was adopted out several weeks ago, but he has now returned to UYR since he needs to get more reinforcement on his puppy manners.

Dreyfus rides great in the car and loves walking on a leash. He also said that Dreyfus loves to snuggle with his people and probably should be in the running for a Snuggling Award. Dreyfus appears to have not had much puppy training by his previous owner(s) and needs some further socialization and training before he will be ready for adoption. He is a smart little boy, so he should learn quickly with positive reinforcement when he exhibits not-so-appropriate behavior.

Dreyfus does have what Foster Mom thinks is separation anxiety, so his perfect home would have at least one stay-at-home parent. A fenced-in yard would be a bonus especially during the house-training process.

PLEASE NOTE: NO CHILDREN under the age of 14 years old. No exceptions made, so please don't ask.


To date we've spent $195.20 on Dreyfus's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $559.70 in donations.

I hope I get my forever home soon. I am looking.
Florida
Lil Bit

Lil Bit is an adorable senior Yorkie boy. He is 13 years old and weighs a little-too-much 7.3 pounds. Lil Bit came with his brother Romeo and they need to be adopted together. He is being fostered in Ocala, FL. Due to COVID-19, Florida dogs can only be adopted within the state of Florida. No exceptions can be made.

THANK YOU TO LIL BIT'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sharon Smith, Barbara Burgess

UPDATED BIO 06/04/2020: Lil Bit and his brother Romeo became United Yorkie Rescue pups when their owner was no longer able to provide the care they needed.

They have been in their foster home for a few days now. Lil Bit is an adorable senior boy. He loves to be held and sleep with his foster mommy. He has some problems walking because he is overweight and needs some exercise so he can be a healthier weight. He also has a urinary tract infection and is taking an antibiotic and has started a diet (eating less food) and exercising in the pool. There is already a significant improvement in his activity level.

Lil Bit likes to use a pee-pee pad to do his business, but foster mom is working with him to do his business outside. Lil Bit will be returning to the vet later this month to have his urine checked and if everything is okay, he will be ready for adoption. Lil Bit needs to be adopted with his brother, Romeo. If you are looking for two very sweet seniors, these are the boys for you.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to his size and age, Lil Bit and Romeo can only be adopted into an adult-only home. No children please.

Initial bio 5/30/20 Lil Bit and his brother Romeo became United Yorkie Rescue pups when their owner was no longer able to provide the care they needed. When it was discovered that Lil Bit has kidney values that were a little too high his vet said he needed his urine checked. Sure enough he has a urinary tract infection that is now being treated. After the UTI is cleared up his bloodwork, particular his kidney levels, will be rechecked. On June 8th Lil Bit will get a much needed dental and after he recovers from that he should be ready for his forever home.

Lil Bit is a little bit overweight. He should be closer to 6 pounds. His foster mom has put him on a diet. Don't let Lil Bit's age scare you, this sweet boy has a lot of life left to live. He is hoping to get adopted with his brother Romeo since they have always been together since Romeo was a puppy. If your heart would like to give one or even better two wonderful, deserving senior Yorkie boys their final and forever home please consider submitting an adoption application for Lil Bit and maybe for his brother Romeo too.

There will be more coming soon as Lil Bit settles into his foster home. His foster mom already knows this sweet boy loves everyone and would make a wonderful friend and companion for whoever would be lucky enough to adopt him. Lil Bit would do best in an all adult home. He is a bit too old to be a fun playmate for kids.


To date we've spent $93.83 on Lil Bit's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $320.00 in donations.
Please donate!

Niko

MEET NIKO. Niko is a sweet little male maltese mix who is 3-1/2 years old and weighs a very chubby 13 lbs. Niko is being fostered in Vero Beach, FL. Due to Covid-19, all Florida foster dogs must be adopted by Florida residents at this time. No exceptions will be made.

INITIAL BIO 06/04/2020: Niko just came into our Foster Care Program today. He was surrendered by his owner who was no longer able to care for him. He is a sweeet little boy who is a little confused right now about what is happening in his life. We think that Niko would be a healthier weight if he weighed 10-11 lbs. Please stay tuned to learn more about Niko as his foster parents get to know him better.

I am a very pretty girlie

I love to be with my family - a lot
Florida
Prissy

MEET PRISSY. She is a sweet little yorkie-poo who is approximately 4 years old and weighs 13-1/2 lbs. Prissy is being fostered in North Fort Myers, 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 PRISSY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Ellen Chokreff, Suzan Robison

UPDATED BIO 06/03/2020: Prissy has only been in her foster home for a few days now, but it has been a busy time for her. Prissy had not seen a vet in the last 1-1/2 years so she needed to have her vaccinations brought up-to-date and that has been done. She got a thorough check-up at the vet and passed with flying colors hooray!

Prissy didnt take long to get very attached to her Foster Mom who reports that she is a very, very sweet little girlie who is very loyal to her family. Prissy is not leash-trained or house-trained, but her foster parents are working with her on these things, and know that she is a very smart girl and appears to be very teachable. Her perfect home would be with someone who will follow-through with the leash and house-training, and maybe even a home where there is at least one stay-at-home parent in the home as Prissy loves and craves human companionship. It would be a big bonus if her forever parent(s) let her sleep in bed with them.

Prissy loves long walks where she can see and smell everything in sight, and once she is more reliant in her leash-training, the long walks wont be as challenging as they are while she is learning how to properly walk on a leash. She learns very quickly and wants to please her person in just a couple of days she has learned the walking route she is taken on and knows the way back to her foster home. She is a smart little princess for sure.

INITIAL BIO 05/30/2020: Prissy 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. Prissy loves to lie beside her person with her head in your lap and loves to be with her person. Theres so much more to know about Prissy, and she will see the vet soon to have her vaccinations updated and a thorough check-up. Stay tuned to learn more about Prissy as her foster mom gets to know her better.


To date we've spent $329.00 on Prissy's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $65.00 in donations.

THANK YOU TO ROMEO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sharon Smith

UPDATED BIO 06/04/2020: Romeo and his brother Lil Bit became United Yorkie Rescue pups when their owner was no longer able to provide the care they needed.

They have been in their foster home for a few days now. Romeo is an adorable senior boy. He loves to explore and follow his foster mom throughout the house. He enjoys rides in the golf cart and trips to the small community dog park, being held and giving kisses. He also likes to sleep with his foster mommy.

At Romeos vet visit, it was discovered that he has lost some muscle mass; however, he is able to walk and run. He is currently getting pool therapy to strengthen his muscles. Romeo is now sporting a bellyband. His foster mom is working on his house-training manners. He has a urinary tract infection and is currently on antibiotics.

Romeo will be returning to the vet later this month to have is urine checked and if everything is okay, he will be ready for adoption. Romeo needs to be adopted with his brother, Lil Bit. If you are looking for two very sweet seniors, these are the boys for you.

Shadow

Shadow
Florida
Shadow

Shadow is a 13-year-old, 5.2-pound Yorkie boy being fostered in Summerfield, FL. Due to Covid-19, all Florida foster dogs must be adopted by Florida residents at this time. No exceptions will be made. Additionally, Shadow is completely blind and is therefore special needs. Extra care will be given to ensure he goes to a vision impaired friendly home (single story, no water features, etc.). Experience with blind pets is a PLUS.

Initial Bio 6/3/2020.

Shadow landed in a shelter when his owners surrendered him because poor health meant they were no longer able to care for him. The shelter reached out to United Yorkie Rescue for help in finding this sweet special-needs senior boy a great FUREVER home. Shadow just landed in his foster home TODAY and his foster parents are just getting to know him. We can only speculate that his owners named him Shadow because he was always close by but we will never know for sure. They had him his entire life so it must have been a very difficult decision to give him up. We know it is tough for Shadow too as a senior dog who is having to adjust to a new life in strange surroundings. Shadow is a special needs pup because he appears to be completely blind. He has cataracts in both eyes with a very prominent one on the left. He is learning his way around his new foster home with the help of his two foster siblings who are serving as his seeing eye doggies. That is A-OK with Shadow because he is a friendly little fella who gets along with everyone. His surrendering owners indicated that he is house-trained but it is a bit too soon to be able to confirm that yet. He is not a fan of cats so a kitty-free home is probably best for him. Due to his vision challenges, a single story home without water features (such as pool, in ground hot tub, etc.) and a fenced yard is best. He may not go to a home with children under age 14 or dogs that are over 20 pounds. He also needs an owner who is home most of the time to ensure his safety. Preference will be given to applicants with blind dog experience. Shadow has some health concerns including elevated liver and kidney values and decayed teeth and needs to be fully evaluated medically prior to considering applications. He will certainly need to have a dental because his teeth appear to be in very poor condition. Once he has visited the Dogtor and been in his foster a home a few days we will have a lot more information to share about him. Stay tuned for updates and if you would like to be part of Shadow's journey towards health and a "Happily Ever After" then he will happily trade kisses for donations! Click the PayPal button below!

Foster Mom says I am a real sweetie for sure

I love my foster home
Florida
Sweetie

MEET SWEETIE. She is a sweet little female Terrier Mix who is approximately 4 years old and weighs 10 lbs. Sadly, Sweetie is heartworm positive. Sweetie is being fostered in Tallahassee, 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 SWEETIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Dianne Schultz, Wendy Fuhrmaneck

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 appears to be house-trained and 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.

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.

INITIAL BIO 05/30/2020: Sweetie just arrived into UYR today she was 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.


To date we've spent $379.27 on Sweetie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $414.27 in donations.

Hooray my knee is better. Now I need my perfect forever home

Sometimes I like to get a fun ride in the stroller.
Florida
TobyKeith

TobyKeith is an adorable, sweet little fellow. He is a 7.8-pound Chorkie (Yorkie/Chihuahua mix). He is only 8 months old. Toby is being fostered in Leesburg, 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 TOBYKEITH'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Alexa Socha Rowan, Barbara Burgess, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Gini West, Robert and Wendy D'Uva, Linda Worsham

THANK YOU TO TOBYKEITH'S FACEBOOK DONOR ANGELS!

Karry Rogers, Alexa Socha Rowan, Lucy Hall, Janet Bashford

UPDATED BIO 5/29/20 Hi Everyone, it is me TobyKeith. I am called just Toby by all my friends, and I have a lot of friends. The truth is everyone I meet is my friend. I love every person and dog I meet. Now here is my best news ever today my nice vet told me my knee was healed. I could run and play and I dont have to be on the leash in the backyard anymore. I didnt waste a minute doing just that. I couldnt stop running around and playing with my good friend Scotty for a long time. My vet also told my foster mom that my other knee is better too. It was not popping out much at all and for most of the time it is staying right where it needs to be. What a great day with good news and lots of time to run and play with my friend.

My foster mommy said I am ready to go to my forever home. Here are some things that are important to know about me. I hate it when I am left alone and I make a lot of noise. I whine and I bark and it is loud. I know it is not a good thing to do and I am trying to do better, but so far I havent improved much. I cant go live in an apartment or condo because I know the people near us will get really mad at me and my new family. I need a stand-alone house so neighbors cant hear me if I get too loud. That means I especially need a forever family with someone who will be home with me a lot of the time. I will give you so much love and so many kisses, you wont even ever want to leave me.

Here is something else I really need too. I really want a young, small doggie friend to play with. I love to run and play and it is way more fun to have a friend who loves to run and play too. I would also love to have a fenced yard to do all that running around in with my friend. I am not so great on a leash. Thats because I like to get going to where we are going fast. I use the potty pad in the house and do my business outside. My foster mom and dad said for a puppy I am pretty good about all this, and pretty close to being house trained. I think that is a good thing. I am good in the car too. I dont bark or whine. I just stay safely attached and watch what is going on all around me.

I am hoping to find the prefer forever family for me. You might think my knee is not healed since I dont use my fixed leg all the time, but thats okay. My vet said that it usually takes a 3 or 4 months to do that, but I always use it when I run, and you know I love to run. I am using it more and more when I walk.

You know I am only 8 months old so I really want and need a family for the whole rest of my life for 15 or even more years if you take good care of me. I dont ever want to have to be with a new family again. It has happened to me four times already. I need a forever home to really be my forever home for my whole life. I wouldnt mind having a home with well-behaved kids over the age of 11 if they would play with me and understand that I am still pretty little so they cant be too rough.

If you want a sweet puppy, who doesnt like to be left alone and you could maybe give me an energetic young friend and maybe even a fenced yard, please send my mommy an adoption application for me TobyKeith, the almost perfect puppy.

Sending puppy love and puppy kisses. TobyKeith.

UPDATED BIO 04/30/2020: Little TobyKeith had his patella (knee) surgery. It is so hard for this puppy to have to be quiet and restrained so his knee can heal properly. He is not happy having to be in the little puppy kennel or the puppy playpen. He only wants to able to run and play because he is, after all, a puppy and that is what puppies do. He only gets to go outside to do his business and he must be leashed.

We have to start Toby slowly putting weight on his right leg. This will take about 6-8 weeks to where he is using his leg and it is healed. It will take another month or two for his leg to be fully functioning and as good as new. Toby's stitches won't be removed until May 11th. Until then he is wearing the cone of unhappiness. The stitches are already bother him. The cone will keep him from licking and bothering them. After the stitches are removed, we are hoping to do some water therapy with him to build up his muscles again. Even though water therapy will be good for him, he wont enjoy it one bit. He is a Yorkie and most Yorkies do not like the water, Toby is one of those water hating Yorkie.

Toby has been spending a lot of time on our laps, in the puppy sling, and being pushed around in his stroller. We have found that at night he is now happier sleeping in his doggie bed between his foster mom and dads pillows. He is leashed to the bed's headboard. He can't go far because he is leashed up but he can sleep with his foster mom and dad and that makes him very happy. If there is one thing Toby Keith does not like it is being left alone. He wants, more than anything after playing with his doggie friends which he can't do for a few weeks now, is to be your Velcro puppy. He loves to play and he wants to run again, but he also loves to be with his people and to love them and give them his great big Toby kisses.

Toby would be okay with older kids 12 years and older. Toby would love a home with one other small playful dog. He gets frustrated if there is a dog around that is not as playful as he is. This is sad for Toby and for the older dogs who would rather not be bothered by such a young, playful dog. Many older dogs love to play, but few have the energy of a puppy. A fenced yard would be a real bonus, since he loves to run around in the yard. His foster parents know once he is healed, he will be out there running again.

Toby can be a barker and he can bark loud. He barks for attention and company to let you know he wants to be with his people or his dog friend. He seems to have separation anxiety and does not want to be left alone. Toby would not be the right dog for apartment or a condo living. His barking will most likely bother the neighbors. Toby would do best with someone who is home throughout much of the day to continue working on his separation anxiety. He will need continued training with his house training and with learning to use proper doggie manners. Toby is a great little guy. He is a lover and loves to cuddle. There is no doubt he will learn proper doggie manners, but his surgery has set back any training in his foster home.

You can see from Toby's pictures that he is not a happy boy. If you feel like you would like to make Toby happier, please consider making a donation to United Yorkie Rescue for Toby to help us pay for his surgery. Maybe if Toby knew people everywhere are loving him, we can get him to smile once again.

Please keep in mind that Toby is a very young boy at 7 months old, he needs a home and family that can be his forever home and family for at least 15-17 years.

UPDATED BIO 04/22/2020: TobyKeith is adjusting nicely to his foster home. It doesn't take a puppy long to feel at home anywhere he can have friends and fun. But for Toby the news is not all good. We found out that Toby will need surgery. He has a total luxating patella on his right hind leg. This is a condition in which the patella, or kneecap, dislocates or moves out of its normal location. Patella luxation is a common condition in dogs, particularly small and miniature breeds. The condition usually becomes evident between the ages of 4 and 6 months.

At 7 months old it is likely that his knees were bad before it became apparent to us. His former owner was an older person and Toby was kept crated for part of the day. When he was not in the crate he spent almost all his time indoors. When he came to his foster home, he was free to run around the fenced yard and play with the other dogs. He liked to jump like a jumping bean expressing how happy he was to see us and be with everyone. Toby did what all puppies do and that is to be an active, energetic, happy, little puppy. Unfortunately, all that puppy fun caused his right knee to luxate 100% and surgery is the only option.

Toby's left knee is also wobbly, but is not where it needs surgery and the hope is it never will. Dogs do fine with a luxating patella and usually the knee cap is able to go back into place if it does move. His left knee is able to do that, his right knee is not, and therefore surgery is the only option.

Toby's surgery will be April 27th. After that he will have a 6-8 week recovery in which he will have to be leashed to go out to do his business and confined for most of the day when he is inside. We plan to spend a lot of our day with Toby next to us or on our lap so he is not alone for long periods of time. We expect TobyKeith to make a full recovery. He will again be that energetic, lively, happy puppy. It would be to his benefit to be on a joint supplement to keep his knees healthy.

Toby will not be able to be adopted until he is healed and released by his vet. All applications for him will be held until we know the kind of forever home Toby needs. Please keep in mind that TobyKeith is a very young dog and he needs an active forever family that can give him at least a 15-17 year commitment of the same forever home. Toby would be fine with kids 12 years old or older. He would love a home with a fenced yard and only one other young active dog for a friend. More than one dog and he gets confused who to play with.

TobyKeith's surgery will be expensive. Please help us with that expense. Anything you can give will be greatly appreciated and will allow UYR to continue to rescue these little doggies that may need extensive surgeries like TobyKeith.

Initial bio 4-18-20 TobyKeith just came to his foster home. His owner realized that a puppy needed a home that could meet his puppy needs. He needed more activity and time and attention then she could give him. His foster parents have found that TobyKeith is one active, energetic, happy puppy. He has been so busy exploring and running around in his foster home. He will take a little rest and then he is up and going again.

Toby was neutered recently so he will need to stay in his foster home for at least two weeks while the neuter heals. We know he likes other active small dogs and he seems to love people. There will be a lot to learn and fun to have with TobyKeith the puppy. Come back soon to find about it all out. TobyKeith may be okay with older children 12 years old and older. He needs a forever family that will give this puppy at least 15 to 17 years of a forever home.


To date we've spent $751.46 on TobyKeith's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $955.00 in donations.

I am such a sweet boy
Florida
Troy

MEET Troy. Troy is a sweet little male yorkie who is 9 years old and weighs 8.4 lbs. Troy is being fostered in St. Augustine, 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 TROY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

UPDATED BIO 05/14/2020: Troy recently had surgery to remove his remaining two teeth and repairs to his nasal fistula were successfully completed. He did well during surgery and it will be 2-3 weeks before he is fully recuperated and ready to go to his forever home. Troys surgery cost was $1,500.00 but he received the best care from a veterinarian dental specialist due to the delicate nature of the procedure.

If little Troys story has pulled at your heartstrings, please consider donating money towards this very necessary surgery for him this will enable UYR to continue to rescue other little needy dogs like Troy in the future.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Troy's small size, he can only be adopted into a home with children 10+ years old.

UPDATED BIO 05/08/2020: Troy has now been in his foster home for 5 weeks now. In that time, a lot has gone on with this sweet boy. He was neutered and had a partial dental he lost 4 teeth of his 6 remaining teeth. At the time of the dental/neuter, the vet found that Troy had an oronasal fistula this is an opening in his mouth which allows water, saliva, plaque bacteria, and even small food particles to enter the nasal cavity and cause chronic nasal infections. She also found another one that was closing on its own. Due to the nature of the fistula, it was recommended that Troy be seen by a veterinarian dental specialist. An appointment was made and the specialist is willing to surgically repair the fistula and remove one or both of his remaining teeth. Unfortunately, the costs of the specialized surgical procedure is estimated to be between $1,400 and $1,700 the surgery is scheduled for 05/12. United Yorkie Rescue is reaching out to our very generous donor angels since we need your help to raise this large amount of money. It is a big surgery and Troy will need between 2-3 weeks to recuperate. If little Troys story has pulled at your heartstrings, please consider donating money towards this much-needed surgery for him this will enable UYR to continue to rescue other little needy dogs like Troy in the future.

Troy has come such a long way since he been in his foster home. He gets along with the other 4 little resident yorkies in the house and the kitty cats. He loves going outside with the other dogs and they are teaching him how to be a beloved companion dog. Troy and the cats have an understanding now. He checks them out everyday and they accept him doing that.

Troy is finally trusting his foster parents. He will now come up and sit with them and he is comfortable and confident doing that. Troy has learned how to use the stairs up to the gazebo. He loves to go for walk and is doing quite well. PLEASE NOTE: Troy is a runner and can easily escape if his persons attention wanders. His foster mom feels strongly that his perfect forever home would have a secure fenced-in yard.

Troy is starting to know what proper puppy playtime is and he is picking up a toy now and again out of curiosity. He loves going for walks and going outside in the garden and just running around and smelling the fresh air outside. He has stopped marking in the house, but his foster parents are still working on house-training for this little man. Troy is very good in the car and so quiet you almost forget he is there. He is a very good boy.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Troy's small size, he can only be adopted into a home with children 10+ years old.

UPDATED BIO 04/08/2020: Troy is an adorable little boy who just arrived a few days ago to his foster home. Troy's previous life wasn't so great. He was kept outside most of the time. Most likely no one ever took the time to house train this little fella or give him much love and affection. A kind person found him while looking on the internet for a female Yorkie. When she saw the condition he was in, she immediately offered to purchase him and promised him a better life.

Fast forward a few days . Troy was immediately taken to the vet due to his mouth being horribly infected which caused him extreme pain and distress. He received a neuter and a partial dental 4 of his 6 remaining teeth were removed. His teeth were so bad that he had developed an oronasal fistula which allows water, saliva, plaque bacteria, and even small food particles to enter the nasal cavity and cause chronic nasal infections. He was put on antibiotics to help heal this nasal fistula and he will surely feel much better. Once he has healed, he will then need to have the remaining two bottom canine teeth removed.

Troy is doing great in his foster home and is really enjoying being outside with the rest of the dogs. He is sporting a bellyband in the house since he is not house-trained, but his foster parents will be working with him on this. Troy met the two Siamese kitty cats and it appeared he may have never seen a cat due to his reaction, so his normal thing to do was to bark. This should subside once he realizes they mean him no harm. He is a very sweet and submissive little dog who only wants a forever family to love and receive his love in return.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Troy's small size, he can only be adopted into a home with children 10+ years old.

INITIAL BIO 04/05/2020: Troy is an adorable little boy who just arrived today to his foster home. Troy's previous life wasn't so great. He was kept outside most of the time. Most likely no one ever took the time to house train this little fella or give him much love and affection. A kind person found him while looking on the internet for a female Yorkie. When she saw the condition he was in, she immediately offered to purchase him and promised him a better life.

Poor Troy, who had not only been neglected by his previous owner, was mistreated as well. His new owner promised him that life was behind him now and only happy times were ahead. Troy was so excited to be in a loving home he showed his trust by lots of tail wags. Unfortunately, his new mom found that her dog and Troy did not get along. This was not Troy's fault. Having never been neutered, Troy tried to get too friendly with his new brother. That didn't go over very well and he started to attack Troy every time he saw him. His worried new mom contacted United Yorkie Rescue and he is now officially a UYR pup.

Troy is a very sweet and submissive little dog who walks well on the leash. He was very good in the cars that transported him on his Freedom Ride to his foster home. Troy has received all of his vaccinations. He needs to be neutered and desperately needs a dental. Due to neglect he only has a few teeth left and he may lose those, though it doesn't affect his ability to eat. Troy's foster mom has observed that he loves to walk around in the fenced-in back yard, so it would be a big BONUS if there was a fenced-in yard - but not a deal-breaker.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Troy's small size, he can only be adopted into a home with children 10+ years old.

Please stay tuned to learn more about Troy as his foster mom gets to know him better.

Francie

Meet Francie a 8 year old, 8 pound Yorkie. She is being fostered in Suwanee,GA

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

THANK YOU TO FRANCIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta

Updated Bio 3/2/20

Francie came into rescue a couple of months ago with her sister Rhue. Their previous owner passed away and it was thought to all that the pair of doggies were bonded but it turns out they are not and both dogs have very different personalities and likes. So now United Yorkie Rescue is searching for each dog a new home of their very own to fit their needs.

Francie is not much of a Cuddle Bug , She wants attention but not so sure she wants to be in a lap. She does like to get under your feet while you are sitting and use them to scratch her back. Francie enjoys exploring the backyard and will come when called. She is a good car rider, is indifferent to kids and cats and appears to be almost completely house trained. Francie prefers to sleep in a corner of your bed but she is also crate trained. She's going to need a good patient home where they are willing to give her the time to feel safe and settle in.

Updated Bio 11/16/19

Francie and Rhue are looking for a new home. Their mom passed away and there was no one available to keep them together so they came into United Yorkie Rescue in hopes someone will fall in love with this pair and give them a new home. Francie just had her first dental ever in all of her 8 years and she lost 11 teeth. You'd think this might slow her down but she's still hungry and really enjoying her soft food for the next few days while she heals. She wants attention but not so sure she wants to be in a lap yet. She does like to get under your feet while you are sitting and use them to scratch her back. Francie enjoys exploring the backyard with her sister Rheu and will come when called. She must be walked with a harness and not with a lead attached to her collar because it makes her choke. She is a good car rider, is indifferent to kids and cats and appears to be almost completely house trained. Francie prefers to sleep in a corner of your bed but she is also crate trained. She's going to need a good patient home where they are willing to give her the time to feel safe and settle in. Any questions please email foster mom at jennifer@unitedyorkierescue.org

Updated Bio 6/3/20: CHLOE ( TENNESSEE)

Chloe is a just-turned-4 year old, 14-pound miniature schnauzer being fostered in Ashland City, TN.

Sadly, this young girl is almost completely blind through no fault of her own. Chloe came to us with multiple challenges including a leg that was broken when she was hit by a car but she never received care for this so her leg turns slightly inward. The break has long since healed and does not seem to limit her but her rapidly deteriorating vision is a different matter. Sadly, Chloe has bilateral congenital cataracts. Dogs like Chloe are born fully sighted but soon experience rapidly deteriorating vision. Chloes Mom knew something was wrong when she observed Chloe stumbling into furniture, objects and walls so UYR had Chloe evaluated by a Veterinary Ophthalmologist. A thorough work up and retinal exam was performed to see if an underlying condition might be present. The good news is that Chloe passed her retinal exam with flying colors meaning that other than cataracts, both eyes are otherwise healthy and her vision can be fully restored with surgery. However, her cataracts are rapidly progressing and we were advised that without surgical intervention Chloe is likely to develop glaucoma and could risk losing not only her vision but her eyes as well. Chloes rapidly deteriorating vision causes her lots of anxiety because she does not understand what is happening to her. She is super loving and wants to play with her foster family and fur-siblings so bad but it scares and frustrates her to bump into walls and furniture and not be able to see where she is going. We do not normally perform cataract surgery on our vision-challenged dogs due to the high cost and the fact that most dogs who have cataracts experience very gradual vision loss over a period of years and adapt quite well. However, we feel that given Chloes young age and emotional distress we should give this angel a chance to live her life as a sighted dog. The cost is estimated to be between $3500 and $4500 and we realize that is a very big number. Still, we feel that Chloe needs and deserves this opportunity and we hope you do too and will help by sending some love in the form of donations her way! If you would like to donate to her care please click on her PayPal button underneath.

Updated Bio 5-1-20: Chloe is a very smart, sweet girl. Although she has advanced cataracts ( due to genetics) she doesnt let that hinder her in any way. She gets around great, plays gives lots of loving, and enjoys being with her person. Chloe gets excited about going on walks. She is completely house trained. She loves to sleep with foster mom and she often steals her pillow! Before coming into rescue she was hit by a car and her back leg healed a little bit inward. The vet said this cant be fixed. She probably wasnt taken to the vet and it healed up on its own. This may cause her to have arthritis. She likes to go for car rides but needs to be in a car seat or she roams all over due to excitement and her not being able to see. She does settle down pretty quick . We do believe in the right lighting she can see maybe shadows. We are not sure if she would be a candidate for cataract surgery since her cataracts are so advanced. The rescue no longer does cataract surgery due to the high expense. Chloe loves food and treats. She has her favorite spot up on the couch she lays on. Chloe does get along well with other dogs, however she doesnt want them to come up and jump on her to play. She would do great as an only dog or with an older calm dog. Due to her cataracts it is good to warn her if she doesnt hear you coming or it scares her if you reach to pet if she is sleeping. She is only 4 years old and Chloe deserves a family who will love and cherish her for life. She is up to date on shots, spayed and has had a dental. Any questions please email Foster mom at mandy@unitedyorkierescue.org

Chloe is up to date on all shots but will be checked up by the Dogtor soon to make sure all else is good. Stay tuned for updates as Foster mom learns more about miss Chloe.

Jasper Riley

Jasper Riley Is a 15 year old ( estimated ) Yorkie mix boy who weighs 9.8 pounds. He is being fostered near Ashland City, TN.

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

THANK YOU TO JASPER RILEY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Irene and Peter Havas in memory of darling Happy

Updated bio 5-1-20 For those of you who don’t know his story Jasper Riley was a man of the streets for no telling how long till someone found him wandering and took him to a shelter. He was very dirty, matted, and had super long nails. He had horrible teeth and did not want anyone at all to touch his mouth because of the severe pain. He also suffered from bad skin irritations and very bad ear infections that caused him a lot of pain. Jasper Riley is Blind and mostly deaf ( probably due to the ear infections) You have to pet him gently from the back so you do not startle him when picking up. He may hear some high pitch sounds. The amazing thing is that the shelter he ended up in took care of all his bloodwork, shots, grooming and dental work (he lost 13 teeth) He is heart worm negative and has been treated for parasites already. He was neutered prior to coming to the shelter at some point in his life. Love and care can do wonders for these senior doggies. Jasper Riley has been in rescue since March. Since then, his beautiful hair is growing and his skin is healing due to the medicated baths he is given twice a week. His ears are completely healed and his gentle personality is coming out. He enjoys roaming around outside and has found his trail to the water bowl and back to his favorite spot in his own bed right by foster moms He loves to eat and also gets a special vitamin for his skin every other day. Jasper Riley loves to be petted and will lay beside you on the couch. He deserves a forever home to live out the rest of his Senior years in. Any questions email foster mom at mandy@unitedyorkiereacue.org.

The director of the shelter reached out to United Yorkie Rescue in hopes to find this Senior Fellow the best home to live out the rest of his days being spoiled and loved unconditionally. So far Foster Mom has noticed that he is the sweetest little dog ever!! He is a about 2-3 pounds underweight his bones stick out. With lots of love and care he will put on the weight he needs and Foster Mom will give him special baths to help his skin heal up and his hair will grow back where it is missing. Love and care can do wonders for these doggies. It takes teamwork between all. The Shelter who took care of all immediate needs, the foster home he will heal in and his forever home to love him for life. He will see his Dogtor next week for a recheck on his mouth and his skin. Stay tuned for updates. Any questions email foster mom.

Buster and Precious are a bonded pair who just arrived. They are brother and sister from same litter. They have been together since birth. They stay by each others side and sleep together. They were born on Christmas Eve and will turn 11 yrs this Christmas. They seem to be very active and healthy. Their previous owners felt they were not getting the attention they deserved due to hectic schedules. It was with a heavy heart they reached out to UYR to help them find the pawfect home for these sweet babies. They are great car riders and appear to be very well behaved. THey are housetrained as well. They enjoy being petted and have been open to being held. Stay tuned as we get to know this sweet pair in the coming days.

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.

Meet Jack (aka Mack), a sweet 1 year old, 12 pound Yorkie mix boy being fostered in Pflugerville, TX. NO OUT OF STATE ADOPTIONS WILL BE CONSIDERED GIVEN COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS.

THANK YOU TO MACK'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Jessica Howarth, Alex LeBlanc, Yvette Vangeloff, Angie Cagle

Update 5/25/2020: Hi my name is Jack! They tell me I'm a 1 year old Yorkie mix but I am unsure what that means, I'm just me. I was rescued in Southern California, but thanks to the nice people at United Yorkie Rescue I am now deep in the heart of Texas. I was born with Microphthalmia OD so when I got to Texas they took me for surgery and now my eye doesn't hurt. It looks like I'm winking though and people keep thinking I'm talking in code. they also got me "fixed" but I don't know what that means cause I don't think I was broken.

I am young and have a lot of energy and like to run around and explore. I only have one eye though so I tend to bump into things and people when I get excited. I would like to find a home where I can burn off my energy and go on walks and play. I get along well with other dogs but they can get upset sometimes when I bump into them but im working on that.

If you think I would be a good fit for your home please fill out an application below, because I would love to meet you.

Mia

Mia

Meet Mia, a 10 year old, 3 pound little princess being fostered in Leander, TX. DUE TO COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS, ONLY TEXAS APPLICANTS WILL BE CONSIDERED.

THANK YOU TO MIA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Lauren Satterfield, Wendy Henry, Sherrie Scrupski, Kathleen Conley

5/21/20 Howdy cool dogs and puppies! Mia here to tell you a little about myself. I was recently released (rescued) from a life behind bars. Well truthfully, it was a baby crib, where I have been confined for a long time. I am 10 years old and a commanding 3.3 pounds. I wish I could tell you that I come into rescue in perfect shape and ready to find my forever home, but that would be a fib. When I was surrendered I was severely flea infested and suffered some hair loss because of it. I have never been spayed and am currently in heat. I developed several mammary tumors due to not being spayed and will likely have at least one entire mammary chain removed in the coming weeks. I am currently on antibiotics for a severe UTI, need a dental, and suffer from a 4 out of 6 heart murmur. Despite all these ailments, I am very sweet and love attention. Foster mom and dad have scheduled me to get spayed on 6/4 and have asked the dogtor to take a sample of my urine to send out for a culture. See, I also am having an issue with going to the bathroom. It just feels like I have to go all the time and I am able to get a little out about every 30 seconds while I am awake. This could be a combination of being in heat and the UTI, but the dogtor needs to take a close look at me to determine why this is happening. I have a good appetite and need to put on about a pound to be healthy. My poor ribs and spine are very visible, but the good diet foster mom and dad have me on will surely get me back to my optimal weight in no time. Please stay tuned for more updates on my progress as I go through some inevitable surgeries in the coming weeks.

From Foster Parents: Due to Mia's size, she will only be available to homes without small children. She will need a very patient family to deal with her bladder issues and sometimes not so nice temperament (due to fear). She does enjoy cuddling on the couch and really loves being outside, supervised at all time of course. Mia cannot be crated, as she has already suffered a long life of being confined. If you have space in your heart and home for Mia, please fill out an application using the link below. You can also contact the foster directly with any questions using the email below.


To date we've spent $622.14 on Mia's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $140.00 in donations.

UPDATE 6/5/20: Hello everyone! I have been in foster care two weeks now. Just by looking at me you can see my battle wounds, only because I showed up to my biggest fight in life. Dont let that scare you, I am a sweet, loving, playful and GORGEOUS one year old pup.

I have to admit, the first 5 days or so were rough when I arrived at my foster home. I have other Yorkie fur siblings that I live with, and although they were very nice to me, I was not always nice back. A few days later, I met Bella the biggest dog in the house, I have to admit, Bella triggered many emotions and fear for me. My foster dad picked me up while they introduced me to her. Since I felt safe, I was okay but my dad said my heart was beating so fast that he picked me up every time I would be around Bella. My foster family LOVES me very much, they have helped me relax a lot, and I can say that Bella and I are friends now but I am always supervised around her and never left alone with her. Later on, I started to understand that when my fur siblings barked it wasn't always because something bad was happening. You should see me now, I get along just fine with all the dogs here, BUT I still don't want to have a big dog around me when I find my furever home. I may need some patience if you have another dog my size. You will have to teach me to get along with them and give me some time to settle and relax. I promise you, I have a lot of potential to be the perfect member of your family.

I also have a little bit of storm anxiety, but if you let me cuddle next to you during a stormy night I will be just fine. After my amputation it took me no time to adjust, three days later I was jumping on and off the couch. My parents have a pool and I can't wait for this weekend so I can get in the pool with my life jacket and have some fun! If you don't mind having a little tripod in your life, and you promise to not put me in a crate, and not to have big dogs around, but you want a snuggle bug and one that loves kisses, I am your girl! I am ready to go home and and be your forever fur-baby. I know you will love me to pieces! My foster mom says thank you for your patience.

INITIAL BIO. 05/21/20. Hello! My name is Rose, I am not even a year old yet and I have already been through some rough times. I am 11 months old.

I am a fighter, but my small frame body is no match for large dogs when trying to defend myself. I was brought in to my home as a pup where there were two large dogs already there. We didn't get along from the start. I survived several attacks, but the last three were the most vicious, and the last one almost killed me. These two big dogs in the house went for my neck, causing some puncture wounds. Unfortunately, during the last attack my front right leg was fractured and mangled beyond repair. So here I am, I had my leg amputated today and now I face some new challenges, but I am happy I am at my foster home now. I am safe and loved here.

I hear that they helped another amputee dog a couple of months ago. I hope my foster family can help me overcome the new challenges I will face. I have 7 other fur siblings in my foster home who gave me a very warm welcome. My foster mom will give you all an update later to let you know what my needs really are. If you are interested in a three legged friend and you promise to not let me around big dogs and love me until the bitter end, please follow my story or email my mom Olga at olgauyrtx@gmail.com

Roxy
Texas
Roxy TX

Meet sweet Roxy, a tiny 6 pound, 9 year old little girl who came to her Texas foster mom from California. She is being fostered in Georgetown, TX.

INITIAL BIO: 05/31/20. Meet Ms Roxy who is a 7lb lovable 9 year old bundle of love. This sweet girl came to UYR 3 weeks ago from her home of 9 years. Her previous owner was moving and wasn’t able to take her to her new home. She only had a few health issues but nothing that will keep her from loving all the human attention she can get. Roxy had some dental surgery and now she has beautiful pearly whites. A nutritious diet and some skin care are letting her coat come in so beautiful. She had some skin issues on her ears, which caused hair loss, but with treatment her hair is growing slowly back in. Her hair looks to be a coco brown, which could give her a tri color coat.

If you are good with an adorable little Yorkie following you around and driving you crazy to go for walks and car rides then she will be perfect for her new family. Her potty training is 50/50. She is starting to see that staying outside in her yard and sniffing and enjoying outside is ok. She was scolded for going potty inside and then left outside so associated outside as maybe punishment. She does go and gets lots of praise when she does. She is very smart and With some consistent training she will be great. Roxy loves being with other dogs, big or small. Her preference is to sleep and curl up to a big dog friend. She loves to play with her humans but doesn’t know how to play with other roommates. She does love being part of a pack of other babies. There is no aggression with this girl.

Since she didn’t have a lot of attention her best forever home would be with a family that is home all the time and can love on her and be their best friend. She loves both men and ladies.

A retired couple or a single lady or man would be perfect. Children 12 or older would be a good choice if they are used to a small dog. She used to sleep in a cage but sleeps in a people bed and snuggles all night. You can go to UYR.org to complete an application.

Meet Teddy, a sweet 10 year old, 6 pound little Yorkie boy being fostered in Belton, TX. NO OUT OF STATE APPLICATIONS WILL BE CONSIDERED.

THANK YOU TO TEDDY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

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.

6/2/20 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!!

Elliott

Elliott is a 9 year old Yorkie/ chihuahua mix boy who weighs 7pounds and is being fostered near Stafford, VA

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

Updated bio 3/20/20

Elliot is a 9 year-old, 6.8 pound Yorkie-Chihuahua mix that is being fostered in Stafford VA. Elliots dad passed away unexpectedly which resulted in his mom of 9 years to lose her home and move into an apartment. The apartment could only take 2 dogs and mom felt that Elliot would be the easiest of her 3 to adopt out. Elliot likes to go outside for walks but must be on a leash as he likes to run. When hes indoors he enjoys snuggling up next to you on the couch. At night he enjoys sleeping under the covers next to you and loves to sleep in. Elliot is in a house with other small dogs and cats and gets along with them very well. He doesnt bark unless theres a knock at the door or hes startled. Elliots dogtor said hes very healthy and his senior screen bloodwork was excellent. Elliot will be getting a dental Soon and will be ready for his forever home. Any questions email Foster mom at

Initial Bio 1/12/20: Elliott was surrendered by his owner who loved him very much but due to tragic circumstances reached out to UYR to find him a new home. Please stay tuned as foster mom learns more about this precious boy.
