Nestor Sanchez

Initial Bio 2-21-21 Pretty Ariel just arrived at her foster home and is settling in nicely. Ariel was with her former family since she was a young dog. She knew that her mom and dad and human kids had places they had to go during the day and she patiently waited for them, often in her crate, to come home each day. Then Covid came and as hard it was for her humans, Ariel was overjoyed. She had her family home with her all day every day. But as fate would have it, almost a year later her mom and dad went back to work at their office and her kid friends went off to school. Ariel hated being alone and developed severe separation anxiety. Before Covid she would sleep and wait quietly in her crate for her family to come home. No longer. She was caught on the home camera trying to chew and claw her way out of her crate. In fact, she managed to open the top door of the crate and climb out. The hours she spent alone were taking its toll on her and she was no longer the happy dog she was. She hated when her family left her all day long every day.

Her mom and dad knew that Ariel had developed separation anxiety. Like many dogs with separation anxiety, it can be worked with. It only takes some behavior modification and time. Once the pup knows their person or people are coming back the anxiety goes away. But her mom and dad also knew with their schedules they just didn't have the time to help Ariel get through this and become the once happy pup she was.

Ariel is fine when her people are nearby and close to her. She is a loving affectionate dog and needs to share her affection with her people and have them there to love her back. It is very important Ariel goes to a forever home where her person or people will be home a great deal of the time. She also needs someone who is willing to work with Ariel with her separation anxiety. Her foster mom will be working with her on this too. However, Ariel will need the continuity of having someone to continue to work on her on this anxiety when she does go to her forever home.

Ariel does well in the car, she is a good eater, but mostly she LOVES people and needs to be with her people as much as possible. Ariel will need to be spayed and microchipped. She will be seeing the vet soon for a complete well doggie checkup. Please come back soon to see how Ariel is doing with her foster mom and foster fur sister as they help Ariel to overcome her anxiety. We know the right person or family is just waiting for Ariel and is ready to give her the forever home she needs.

Baby Boy

MEET BABY BOY. He is a sweet tiny male yorkie who is 8-1/2 years old and weighs 4.8 lbs. Baby Boy is being fostered in Miami, FL.

Due to Covid-19 all dogs fostered in the state of Florida must be adopted within the State of Florida.

THANK YOU TO BABY BOY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Melissa Combs, Laura Fajardo, Nestor Sanchez

INITIAL BIO 02/19/2021: Baby Boy has just arrived in UYR and is settling into his foster home. He has had several homes in his life due to no fault of his own, and we are dedicated to find the perfect forever home for him where he will never ever have to move again. He is a tiny little nugget who is very sweet and loving. He loves being with his human more than anything else. He is adapting quickly to his foster home and his foster mom and eating really well.

Baby Boy has seen the vet since he came in with very dry and flaky skin which was irritated. He was also thought that he had impacted anal glands, but the vet said that they just needed to be expressed. We are so very grateful that he is heartworm negative since he has not previously been on heartworm preventative. He desperately needs a dental and it is likely that he will lose all of his remaining teeth due to neglect. His mouth is likely very painful, but he has a good appetite. He had bilateral ear infections which were thoroughly cleaned by the vet and he is being treated with antibiotics for both his ear and skin infections. He will be bathed 2-3x a week with medicated shampoo to help clear up his skin infections. As soon as Baby Boy feels better, he will have a dental and neuter and receive updated vaccinations, and soon thereafter will be ready for adoption. Please stay tuned to learn more about Baby Boy as his foster mom gets to know him better.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Baby Boys tiny size, he can only be adopted into an adult home. Please consider this restriction before applying for this precious little boy.

Baxter

This adorable little Morkie (Maltese/Yorkie mix) is Baxter. Baxter is 7 1/2 pounds of cuteness and approximately 9 years old. He is being fostered in Bradenton, FL.

Due to Covid-19 dogs being fostered in Florida need to be adopted within the state of Florida.

THANK YOU TO BAXTER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Angela Holshouser, Maria Doherty, Ina Love, Nestor Sanchez

UPDATED BIO 02/17/2021: Baxter has been in his foster home for 8 weeks and what a sweetie he is! Baxter has let his foster parents know that he would prefer to be the one and only pet in the home. He loves going for walks at least a couple of times a day. He also likes to play fetch with his fluffy toys and enjoys all the attention he can get. There's also nothing quite like catching up on some snuggles on the couch for Baxter, he loves to be petted and be close with his humans. He is a bit timid and shy at first, but once he gets to know his new family - the more attention the better!

Baxters previous labs showed that he had crystals in his urine and he had bladder stone surgery in the past, so it is very important that we make sure he is on the correct RX food for bladder health going forward. His house-training is on-going and he knows to go to the lanai door when he has to go outside, but this will need to be reinforced in his adoptive home. Baxter has been on his new Rx food for the last two weeks and he thinks it's really yummy. Because of his urinary crystals, he will have to remain on this prescription food for the rest of his life to prevent bladder stones and crystals. His follow-up appointment is coming up in two weeks and we will find out if the food has helped to stop the forming of these crystals. Depending on the results, it is possible that Baxter may be ready for adoption hooray!

Baxter is friendly with older children and would do well in a calm family environment with children 14 years old or older. Baxter is not friendly with kitty cats, so please consider this before applying for him.

PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING BEFORE APPLYING FOR BAXTER:

- Due to Baxters small size, he cannot be placed into a home with children under 14 years of age.

- Baxter cannot be placed in a home with cats or other dogs.

UPDATED BIO 01/30/2021: Baxter is continuing to show his foster family what a lovely little guy he is. He has been in his foster home about five weeks now. Baxter loves a nice walk outside and also loves to snuggle on the couch for as long as you will let him. Baxter has recently let his foster mom know that he would prefer to be the only dog in the home so that he doesnt have to share attention.

At his last vet visit, Baxters labs revealed that he has crystals in his urine which may or may not be contributing to house-training difficulties. He had bladder stone surgery in the past, so it is very important that we make sure he is on the correct RX food for bladder health going forward. Foster mom is switching to a different prescription food per doctors orders and we are very hopeful this will correct the issue. Baxter will need to be on this food for at least 30 days, at which time he will be re-evaluated to see if the crystals have dissolved. Foster mom feels that his condition is heading in the right direction, and once we have confirmation of this, he will be ready for adoption but not until the end of February. Due to his past issues with crystals and stones, Baxter will need to stay on prescription food forever. Luckily, he loves his food and has a healthy appetite!

Baxter is friendly with older children and would do well in a calm family environment with children 14 years old or older. Baxter is not friendly with kitty cats, so please consider this before applying for him.

PLEASE NOTE:

- Due to Baxters small size, he cannot be placed into a home with children under 14 years of age.

- Baxter cannot be placed in a home with cats or other dogs.

UPDATED BIO 01/02/2021: Baxter is an adorable Morkie who has been in his foster home almost two weeks. He was the only dog in his home and well-loved. Then came the time when his former owners could no longer care for him. The information from the previous owners stated that they thought Baxter was in the very early beginning stage of kidney illness and no medication was needed, but he was being fed RX food to promote kidney health. GOOD NEWS! Baxter has seen the vet and had extensive labs taken and there is no indication at this time of him having any kidney issues - hooray!

Baxter has settled in nicely in his foster home and his foster parents are continuing to find out more about this very sweet little fella. He is a gentle little boy and loves attention and affection. Due to the recent changes in his life, he will take some time to warm up to his humans, but once he does, he will be your best friend and follow you around everywhere. Sweet! It was initially thought that since he had always been the only dog in the home, he would prefer that. However, in his foster home, there is another little dog who is older, quiet and submissive and Baxter is very accepting of her. He would not enjoy being in the home with an active playful puppy.

Baxter is great in the car and he walks very nicely on a leash. His foster parents are continuing to work with him on reinforcing house-training, but in his new environment he may not yet know how to ask about doing his business outside. When taken outside, he knows exactly what to do right away, and for this reason, he will be a good learner once he adjusts to the routine of his new home. Baxter is friendly with older children and would do well in a calm family environment with children 14 years old or older. Baxter is not friendly with kitty cats, so please consider this before applying for him.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Baxters small size, he cannot be placed into a home with children under 14 years of age.

UPDATED BIO 12/27/2020: Baxter is an adorable Morkie who has only been in his foster home for about a week. In his previous home, he was the only dog and was well loved. Then came the time when his former owners could no longer care for him. They learned that Baxter is in the very early beginning stage of kidney illness. He is currently on no medication except for the special prescription food to promote kidney health. Dogs with kidney illness who are receiving the proper care can live for many years. Baxter has many more years of living left in him as long as this protocol of prescription food and regular vet visits are done.

Baxter is settling nicely into his foster home and his foster parents are getting to know him. He is a very sweet, gentle little boy and loves attention and affection. Due to the recent changes in his life, he will take some time to warm up to his humans, but once he does, he will be your best friend and follow you around everywhere. Sweet!

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Baxters small size, he cannot be placed into a home with children under 14 years of age.

Initial bio 12/20/20 Baxter is an adorable Morkie who only arrived at his foster home. Baxter was the only dog in his home and well loved. Then came the time when his former owners could no longer care for him. They learned that Baxter is in the very early beginning stage of kidney illness. He is currently on no medication except for the special prescription food to promote kidney health. Dogs with kidney illness who are receiving the proper care can live for many years. Baxter has many more years of living left in him as long as he receives this proper care.

When his first family could no longer care for him, he was adopted by a wonderful person who didn't want Baxter to go to the shelter. Unfortunately, Baxter didn't like the younger dogs in his new home. He didn't want to play with them or even be their friend. When they came near him he let them know that he didn't want to have anything to do with them. Baxter's new mommy knew her home was not the right home for Baxter. His mommy knew that United Yorkie Rescue would find him a better home.

Baxter is settling into his foster home and his foster parents are getting to know him. Baxter most likely needs to be an only pup in the house. It is possible he might be okay with an older submissive, quiet dog. His foster parent will know more about that in the days to come. Baxter is great in the car and he walks very nicely on a leash. He doesn't appear to be house trained, but in his new environment he may not yet know how to ask about doing his business outside. His foster parents believe that Baxter needs a quiet adult only home. There is so much more to know about this adorable fluff ball. Come back soon because we know you want to find out what we find out too.

Cole

This adorable little guy is Cole. He is an 8.5-year-old Yorkie. Little Cole is only 6.25 pounds. Cole is being fostered in St. Augustine, FL.

Due to Covid dogs being fostered in Florida can be adopted only within the state of Florida.

THANK YOU TO COLE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Douglas Percey

UPDATED BIO 02/26/2021: Cole has been in his foster home less than a week and is settling in very well. His former owners knew that he was not getting the attention he needed now that his mom and dad were surprised with a new baby born recently. They were concerned when Cole showed signs of being unhappy, and yes, even dogs can let you know when they are unhappy. His mom and dad were so sad for Cole. They knew for his happiness he needed a home where someone would be able to give him that attention he so badly wanted and needed.

Cole had his dental today and came through with flying colors. He only lost one tooth! Foster mom said that he loves toys; when he came home after his dental, he even went straight for the toy basket and brought her a toy to throw. Wow!

Cole gets along with other dogs. He rides well in the car, and appears to be house-trained. Cole loves to nap on the couch in the family room, even though there are doggie beds all over the house.

PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING RESTRICTIONS ON COLES ADOPTIVE HOME BEFORE APPLYING TO ADOPT HIM:

- Due to Cole's small size, he will need an adult only home, or a home with well-behaved gentle kids over the age of 13.

- Cole does not like to be left home alone, so he will need a home with at least one stay-at-home parent.

Initial Bio 2-21-21 This adorably cute little guy just arrived at his foster home. His former owners knew that he was not getting the attention he needed now that his mom and dad were surprised with a new baby born recently. They were concerned when Cole showed signs of being unhappy, and yes, even dogs can let you know when they are unhappy. His mom and dad were so sad for Cole. They knew for his happiness he needed a home where someone would be able to give him that attention he so badly wanted and needed.

Cole gets along with other dogs and he seems to be fine around cats too. He does well in the car, and we were told he is potty pad trained. Cole has already discovered the toys in his foster home. His foster mom said he LOVES to play with them. He has gotten into the toy basked and has enjoyed scattering them all over the family room floor. He loves to squeak them, chase them, and even take them away from the other dogs to claim them as his. He is one fun-loving little guy.

Cole may need a dental. He will be going to the vet for a well doggie check soon. It will take about two weeks for his foster parents to get to know Cole and what he needs in a forever home. Once they know Coles needs and personality, he will be ready for his forever home. Cole needs a home with someone who is home most of the time. He needs that attention he once had and loved.

Due to Cole's small size, he will need an adult only home, or a home with well-behaved gentle kids over the age of 13.

Cooper

Cooper is a sweet 9-year-old Terrier/Yorkie Mix. He weighs 10.8 pounds. Cooper is so happy to be out of the shelter. He is being fostered in Spring Hill, FL.

Due to Covid-19 dogs being fostered in Florida must be adopted within the state of Florida.

THANK YOU TO COOPER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta

Initial bio 3/5/21 There was never a dog happier to be out of the shelter. He couldn't get into his rescue angel's car fast enough. He was harnessed in and before he could even settle down, he had to give kisses and love. Why this sweet dog ended up in the shelter we may never know. Our best guess is that Cooper does need to see the vet as soon as possible. He has a mass on his left rear foot, but even worse his is holding up his right leg and not putting weight on it. He has a badly luxating patella (knee). We are pretty sure he will need patella surgery very soon. He also will need a dental to clean up the tarter and freshen up his not so good breath. Lucky for Cooper he already has an appointment with the vet Monday morning. At that time, we will know so much more.

Cooper needs a bath and a good grooming. He has mats and tangles in his shaggy hair. This boy, in spite of all those issues and a stay in the shelter, is so sweet and so loving. He just wants to be on your lap or next to you and be loved. We know that with love, good healthy food, and veterinary care Cooper should make the right family a great pet.

Please come back soon and let's get to know Cooper together. Cooper's surgery to fix his knee, remove the lump, as well as getting his mouth cleaned up will cost UYR quite a bit of money. Help us to help Cooper. People have already let him down, we can't do to him too, and with your help we won't. Lets all show Cooper the love he so badly wants. Please donate whatever you can. And thank you so much for doing that.


To date we've spent $0 on Cooper's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $25.00 in donations.

You have to admit I am pretty darn cute.

It is fun to be outside. There is a lot to see and smell.
Florida
Georgie

This adorable little 6.5 pounds Morkie is Georgie. He is 4 years 8 months old. Georgie is being fostered in Leesburg, FL.

Due to Covid-19 dogs being fostered in the state of Florida must be adopted in Florida.

Updated bio 03/05/2021: Georgie has been in his foster home a little over a week now and is finally starting to settle in and find his place in the group. We have learned quite a bit about Georgie in the last week. He still loves and prefers, and only wants, to be with his foster mom and dad, rather than the other dogs in his foster home. He hasn't yet played with toys, but we saw him make an attempt at chasing the toy in the backyard. He gave up quickly when his foster fur brother got the toy before Georgie.

This is what we have learned about Georgie. He is a good eater and he does just fine in the car. He walks nicely on a leash though he seems to prefer the fenced backyard. We don't know how far Georgie likes to walk since he appears to be quite content in the backyard. It is possible Georgie is mostly house trained if taken out often. We think he barks to let us know he needs to go out, but we are not yet completely sure of that. About that barking, Georgie is a great little barker. He barks and barks and loves to bark. If he sees or hears anyone whether its a person or an animal, he has to bark at it. Therefore, Georgie cannot go to a condo or an apartment. He must have a stand-alone house. If there is any neighbor in close proximity or if there is a residence that shares a wall on either side, or lives above or below him, and Georgie hears a noise of any kind he will bark, and without a doubt, these neighbors will hear him. This could go on day or night. A quiet, residential neighborhood would be the best thing for him.

The other important thing we learned about Georgie is that he would rather be an only dog. He wouldn't enjoy a dog park to hang out with other dogs, but he loves the fenced backyard. He tries to hunt down all the wildlife he sees. Squirrels, birds, the little lizard, all qualify as something that he thinks would be fun to chase. He has never come close to getting any, but the fun is in the chase.

In Georgie's best interest and for his happiness he told us that he wants to live in a house, not a condo or apartment, and he really wants a fenced yard because that is more fun than a dog park. He said he is not interested in having a fur brother or sister and especially no cats. Georgie said he wants all the love and attention he can get, so he wants to have a mom or dad who is home a lot of the time to give him that love and attention. His last request is no young kids. He said maybe a nice well-behaved kid, 13 or 14 years old or older, who will understand how small he is and that he is a real live dog and not a stuffed toy.

Georgie goes to the vet for his dental on March 17th. He will be ready for his forever home shortly after.

If you are interested in a possible adoption of Georgie, please keep in mind what Georgie is wanting in his forever home

- A stand-alone home

- A fenced yard

- At least one stay-at-home (a lot) mom or dad

- No young kids under the age of 13/14 years old

- No other pets

- And most of all - lots and lots of love and attention.

Initial Bio 2/27/21 Georgie only recently arrived at his foster home. He is getting to know his new fur friends and his foster mom and dad. It didn't take long for Georgie to decide he loves his foster mom and dad. His former mom and dad knew that Georgie was no longer getting the attention from them he needed and he deserved. There was a new baby in the home and babies take up a lot of time. With their work schedule and the baby, Georgie was unhappy. His thoughtful mom and dad knew how much Georgie loves people and he needed a home where he would get the attention he so badly wanted. That was when Georgie became a United Yorkie Rescue pup.

His foster parents don't yet know too much about Georgie, but they are looking forward to learning all about him and his needs and personality. Come back soon, and with his foster mom and dad, get to know Georgie.


To date we've spent $77.25 on Georgie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

This beautiful Silky Terrier/Yorkie mix is Lucky. He is about 6 years old and weighs 12.9 pounds. Please consider donating to his eye surgery - read the update below. Lucky is being fostered in Boca Raton, FL.

UPDATE 02/22/2021: UPDATE ON LUCKY'S CATARACT SURGERY! Lucky has had his surgery and is recuperating nicely at home. The costs of the cataract surgery for Lucky, including the endo laser treatment in that same eye because he is also high risk for glaucoma, is approximately $3,000. Please consider donating so that UYR can continue to help other little dogs like Lucky have the gift of sight.

UPDATED BIO 2/11/2021. PLEASE HELP US GIVE LUCKY THE GIFT OF SIGHT.

Lucky is just the sweetest young fellow. Despite being totally blind he is adjusting to his foster home with two other dogs and a cat. He tries so hard to be part of their pack. At only 6 years old, he loves to play, and wants to play with the two other dogs and do whatever they do. But he can't. When they start to run around and play Lucky tries to follow and do what they do, but he can't see where they are and what they are doing.

This happy boy is so sweet and loving. He wants to be everyone's friend. He loves people and other animals. No one is a stranger to Lucky. It breaks his foster mom's heart to see this happy boy bump into things when he tries to play. He loves his toys and even tries to play fetch. He can sometimes sniff out the toy, other times he gets frustrated and gives up looking. He never gets angry or upset,he just continues on being the loving, happy boy he is.

Lucky loves his people and loves being with them. Lucky is perfect in almost every way. He is house trained, a good eater, and a good car rider. His foster parents have yet to hear him even bark. He likes his belly rubs. He is great company and loves to sit with his people and give them lots of love. This really sweet, loving, well- mannered, young boy will be a great family member for the right family.

BUT WAIT THERE IS MORE! Lucky had wonderful news from the veterinary eye specialist. She is sure with cataract surgery she can restore the vision in Luckys right eye! We couldnt have asked for better news. We are so happy for Lucky. HOWEVER, giving Lucky his sight back won't come cheap. The cost of the cataract surgery for Lucky, including the endo laser treatment in that same eye because he is also high risk for glaucoma, will cost close to $3000.

How can you put a cost on something as priceless as your vision? BUT there is a cost and we are asking you to help us give this priceless gift to Lucky. Lucky wants so badly to play, to run around, to be one of the gang, and YOU can help make that happen. Whatever you can give will be greatly appreciated. Nothing is too small. Lucky and United Yorkie Rescue are asking you to open your hearts and your wallets and help us pay for his surgery and give Lucky the GIFT OF SIGHT. Lucky is ready for his Valentine's Day miracle. WITH YOUR HELP WE CAN DO IT AND LUCKY WILL SEE AGAIN

Initial Bio 1/30/21 Lucky is such a sweet, beautiful Silky Terrier/Yorkie mix. He was surrendered to another rescue by his owner because she could no longer care for his special needs. Lucky is vision impaired, but do not let that fool you. He does great. If you didn't know he couldn't see well, you would never suspect it. After a few weeks with the other rescue, they realized that this fellow needed to go to a rescue that is more familiar with Silky Terriers and Yorkies, so today Lucky was lucky enough to become a United Yorkie Rescue dog.

His foster mom said he is very sweet. He was very good in the car. He sat in the car quietly just "looking" around. When he arrived at his foster home, he immediately took to exploring the house. Lucky will be seeing the regular vet for a well doggie check. He may need a dental. He will also need a recheck on the skin issues he was treated for recently.

The last vet Lucky saw said he had a mature cataract in his eye; however, we are not sure about the other eye. That eye also has a cataract but it may be an immature one. We plan on getting a consult with a veterinary ophthalmologist to see if we can save his vision in at least one eye. Lucky is not even 7 years old. He has so many years of living left. We hope surgery can give him those years with eyes that see.

If we are able to save Lucky's vision his surgery will cost United Yorkie Rescue a great deal of money. But we know he is worth it. If you also believe that sweet Lucky deserves to see please consider making a donation to him to help us afford the cost of giving Lucky his sight back. Let's make Lucky truly lucky and do all we can to help him see again.

At this time, we believe that Lucky may need an adult only home due to his limited vision.


To date we've spent $3254.84 on Lucky's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $2830.00 in donations.

Rawling is a Silky Terrier/Yorkie Mix. He is about 4.5 years old and weighs almost 12 pounds. Rawling came into UYR vision-impaired and cataract surgery restored his vision - please consider donating to the costs of his eye surgery that restored his vision.

UPDATED BIO 03/03/2021: Hi, Rawling here, checking in with a post-surgery update! I went to the eye dogtor today, and she said I am doing great and recovering nicely from my surgery. She said that my eye is healing really well, and I am so excited that I can see clearly again! I dont like the cone, but hopefully I dont have to wear it much longer. I am so lucky that I get to run, jump and play like the other doggies now. Without the surgery, I might have gone blind, but thanks to UYR and my wonderful rescue angels, I am able to see again. I know that UYR spent a lot of dollars on my surgery, and they said they need more rescue angels to help with the cost. Can you help, even just a little? No amount is too small - every bit helps! Because of my rescue angels, I will have a wonderful life of clear vision, and your donation will enable UYR to continue to save other doggies just like me.

I have settled in well in my foster home. I am eating well and I have gained a few ounces, which foster mommy said I needed. I look so handsome and healthy now! My foster mommy takes me to all sorts of neat places. I love to be in the car and check everything out. One of my favorite spots is by the lake, so that I can watch the duckies and the jet skis on the water. I especially love watching the water and the waves!

Foster mommy says that I am quite the gentleman I have great manners and I never ever bark, unless I see another dog I want to play with. And I love to snuggle and give kisses. If you want a quiet, loving dog choose me! I will be a loyal and loving companion! I walk great on the leash, and love to have long walks in the mornings and evenings. I have learned how to sit and now Im working on paw foster mommy says I am a quick learner! I love having my foster mommy with me, and I really would love a furever home where someone is home with me most of the day. I also think I would like another small doggy friend in the house to play with.

If you think I might be a good fit for you, please fill out an application! I am almost healed and I am so excited to find my furever home soon. Could it be yours?

UPDATE 02/22/2021: UPDATE ON RAWLING'S CATARACT SURGERY! Rawling had his surgery today and is recuperating nicely at home. The costs of the cataract surgery for Rawling is $2,000. Please consider donating so that UYR can continue to help other little dogs like Rawling have the gift of sight.

UPDATED BIO 02/12/2021: PLEASE HELP US GIVE RAWLING THE GIFT OF SIGHT.

Hi everyone, Rawling here! So many nice people have asked about me, so I wanted to give everyone an update. I am UYR foster dog Lucky's son and my blindness is the result of unscrupulous breeding. Lucky and I are both much happier in separate homes.

I love my foster home and my foster mom. I have lots of yummy food, toys and a big, soft bed to sleep in at night. I love to be snuggled up with foster mommy on the bed and the couch, so I need to be in a home where I am allowed to be on the furniture. One thing I really love is belly scratches. Foster mommy is so proud of me because I always do my business outside and haven't had any accidents in the house. I am energetic and athletic, and I love to go for long walks and explore. Foster mommy has taken me to the park, the beach and downtown, and I love it all! I ride great in the car, and I even made some new friends at the dog park. I would love to be with a family that wants to spend lots of time with me and take me on adventures.

I came into UYR with cataracts in both of my eyes so my vision is limited. This is something that I inherited when I was just a baby, and I have lost the vision in my left eye. I really want to run, jump and play just like any other dog with perfect vision. Thanks to the nice people at UYR, I was able to go to the Doggie Eye Doctor yesterday and she says that she can only fix my left eye so that I will be able to see clearly out of it. I am so excited that I will get a chance to see clearly again like the other doggies. I heard the nice vet say that its going to cost a lot of money (over $2,000!), but foster mommy said that that she and all the yorkie angels out there will work very hard to raise the money to give me the gift of vision. The nice doggie eye doctor also mentioned that without the surgery, I could be totally blind within a year. I'm only 4-1/2 years old and foster mom and the vet said that I deserve to have vision since I have a long life ahead of me. I offered foster mommy my biscuits to help pay for it, but she said that UYR needs dollars.

Will you be one of my rescue angels so that I can see again? I am still a young pup with so much life ahead of me, and I cant wait to have clear vision back so I can have many adventures ahead! If you donate, I will send you a special thank you card .. foster mom said that the gift of sight will be an amazing way to show how much people care about me and that there are lots of yorkie and silky terrier angels out there who will be reading this and will want to help me have vision. Whatever you can give will be greatly appreciated. No amount is too small. Thank you from the bottom of my itty bitty heart. XOXOXOXO from Rawling.

Initial bio 2/2/21 Rawling is a sweet, beautiful Silky Terrier/Yorkie mix. He was surrendered to another rescue by his owner because he could no longer care for his special needs. Rawling is vision impaired, however it is possible he can see with the one eye that may not have a mature cataract. He gets around just great. If you didn't know he couldn't see as well as most dogs his age, you would never suspect he had some vision issues. After a few weeks with the other rescue, they realized that this fellow needed to go to a rescue that is more familiar with Silky Terriers and Yorkies, so today Rawling was lucky enough to become a United Yorkie Rescue dog.

His foster mom said he is very sweet. He was very good in the car. He sat in the car quietly just checking everything out all around him. When he arrived at his foster home, he immediately took to exploring the house. He tried to play with the resident dog, who didn't want to play with him at all. We think Rawling is a playful dog and might like to have a playmate. He also would love a fenced yard. With his vision a fenced yard would be something that could be important to him. We will know more about both those things as he settles into his foster home.

We will be getting a consult with a veterinary ophthalmologist to see if we Rawling is a candidate for cataract surgery. We want him to keep his vision in at least one eye. Rawling is not even 5 years old. He has so many years of living left. We hope surgery can give him those years with eyes that see.

If we are able to save Rawling's vision his surgery will cost United Yorkie Rescue a great deal of money. But we know he is worth it. If you also believe that adorable Rawling deserves to always be able to see, please consider making a donation to him to help us afford the cost of giving this gift to Rawling. Let's make Rawling a lucky pop and do all we can to help him see for the rest of his life.

At this time, we believe that Rawling may need an adult only home due to his possible limited vision.


To date we've spent $2483.20 on Rawling's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1015.00 in donations.
Please donate!

Annie
Illinois
Annie IL

Meet Annie, a sweet and very thin little rescue being fostered in Southwestern Illinois. She is estimated to be 10 years old and is 4 skinny pounds. Due to COVID concerns, adoptions must be within a 100 mile radius of the foster home location.

THANK YOU TO ANNIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

THANK YOU TO ANNIE'S FACEBOOK DONORS!

Cheryl Ziegler, Peggy Burdick Buchanan, George Jonas, Lisa Cox, Suzan Robison, Adrienne Clark-Fisk, Penny Cooper

1/27/21 update: Annie has been doing great in her foster home. She was put on medicine by the cardiologist to help with her syncopal episodes, and she went an entire month without having any. Within the past couple days, the episodes have returned, so we are looking into possibly increasing her dose, as maybe she has built up a tolerance to the dose that she is currently on. Other than that, her hair has fully grown back in, she has gained all weight needed to be a healthy size, and she is a very happy dog. Since feeling better, Annie has become very sassy and decided that she is very dog selective. She tolerates most of other fosters at the house, and one of the resident dogs. However, she has chosen one resident dog that she has decided to try and attack all the time. For this reason, Annie needs to be the only dog in the home, as we could not guarantee who she would get along with, and she really is a loner and wants all the attention to herself anyway. Annie also cannot do any stairs, so she would need a ranch home, and need to be carried out to the yard. She does not require a fenced yard, but she cannot go for walks due to her heart condition – she can only walk around for about 5 minutes at a time before she gets tired and needs to go inside. Annie needs a quiet, calm, home and would do great with someone who is retired and looking for a little lap dog to dote on all day. Please contact her foster mom with any questions regarding adoption.

Update 12/1/20: Annie was doing so well until Thanksgiving night she had a serious setback that we did not expect. She started fainting repeatedly, approximately every 10 minutes at one point. I rushed her to the ER and she was diagnosed with a severe heart arrhythmia that caused her fainting (syncopal episodes) and I was told she needed to see a cardiologist for further testing. The cardiologist was booked, so we made the first available appointment for Dec. 22nd, but the cardiologist called us on Monday, 11/30 and said given the fact that she was continuing to faint several times a day, we needed to rush her down to his clinic 2 hours away and get her admitted through the ER there.

So off we went and I sat in the car for about 6 hours while the doctors tested and examined her. It is determined she has sick sinus syndrome (SSS), along with degenerative valve disease. She has been started on medication to hopefully reduce or stop the syncopal episodes, but the only true cure for SSS is a pacemaker. Given her age and multiple heart problems, we are waiting to see how well the medicine works before putting her through an extensive and risky surgery. The ER visit and diagnostic testing with the cardiologist were extremely expensive so if you can find it in your heart to donate to Annie's vet bills, please consider a donation to help UYR with this sweet girls care.

Update 11/6/20: Hi everyone, Annie here! Foster Mom (FM) said I could talk this time since I'm starting to feel better! The amazing Dogtor was able to sneak me in a whole week earlier than my scheduled appointment. First, I have gained about a pound since being with FM, which is amazing! I eat like a horse and she said my ribs have filled out a lot. I am also heartworm negative! I also have a huge UTI, which was not really a surprise to FM. A couple more serious issues are that my red blood count and hemoglobin are extremely low. Not low enough to need a transfusion, because they are making more at this point, but we need to keep watch. Also, my liver is inflamed and that's a big concern. However, I have massive infection throughout my body so I am on high dose antibiotics to help all of the infections I have. I have infection in my mouth from my rotten teeth, of course my UTI, and serious skin infections. Dogtor said I need to come back after 3 weeks on the antibiotics and get repeat labs. If my liver values are not improved, we may need to do an ultrasound to see why it's inflamed. But the antibiotics will clear up my UTI, and will make my mouth feel better for a while. Dogtor also wants to hold off doing my dental and spay until I'm a little healthier and heavier to make sure I will be okay during the surgery, so I will be staying with FM for a while and that is just fine with me she feeds me a lot! I'll update again after my next labs in three weeks. Thanks for all your love and support! Love, Annie

Initial Bio 10/29/20: Annie is a 10 year old (guestimate), vaccinated, very emaciated yorkie/silky mix who was pulled by UYR from a St. Louis animal control. She was found abandoned by animal control in a field. It is clear she has been neglected for some time, as she came in with matted hair and had to be shaved, has some hair loss on her ears, paws, and tail, and is arthritic. She also has dental disease.

Despite her neglect, Annie is a very sweet, loving dog and gets along well with the small, resident dog of the house. She follows her foster mom everywhere and just wants to be loved.

Annie's first vet appointment is scheduled in almost two weeks, and hopefully she can put on some weight between now and then. She will definitely need bloodwork to see if she will be able to tolerate anesthesia for her dental and spay. Please stay tuned to learn more about sweet Annie!

Blitz (Snowy)

Blitz is a 5 year old Maltese Boy who weighs 13 pounds and is being fostered near Elizabethtown ,KY.

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

THANK YOU TO BLITZ'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Wendy Henry, Cheryl Scrupski, Lauren Satterfield

Updated Bio 2/24/21

Blitz is an adorable, friendly, and super hero! Another rescue organization reached out to UYR to save him from a kill shelter. Blitz is super sweet. He gets along well with other dogs. He does like to play, and he will attach to his person. He enjoys sitting on that person's lap and sleeping at the foot of the bed with that person. And, another thing, he loves, loves to eat. He is always up for a snack, and he is full of joy. He was recently neutered. Other than being extremely matted, his only issue appears to be a deformed paw, which is being attributed to being in a cage too small. He does NOT like being caged. Interestingly enough, he will go into the oversized kennels we have and sleep with the other dogs. Just don't close that door! He is a bit of a barker at times, especially if he notices anyone near the kitchen window. He does go potty outside. He has had a few accidents inside, but we can't fault him because all our pets have had accidents in the house. Plus, who wants to go outside in the cold and all that snow? Blitz is truly a sweetheart of a dog, with a heart of gold.

02/02/21 Blitz has just landed in his new foster home. He is a sweet dog loves to stay close to his foster mom right by her side or at her feet. He seems to get along with foster mom's other dogs. Loves to go outside. Can be nervous when meeting new people. Please stay tuned as we get to know Blitz better he will be going to the Dogtor soon to get current on all vaccinations.


To date we've spent $702.71 on Blitz (Snowy)'s vet bills, but with your support we've collected $65.00 in donations.

Buck
Rhode Island
Buck

Meet Buck, a sweet 12 pound, 6 year old Yorkie boy being fostered in East Providence, RI. Due to COVID, no out of state adoptions will be considered.

THANK YOU TO BUCK'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Gail Minnich, Genesis Padilla, Wendy Henry, Pauline Leonard, Lauren Radencic, Wendy Henry

UPDATE 1/2/21: Happy New Year from New England. Ive been to the Vet lady and shes starting me on some medication that will help me to feel less anxious and fearful. We also talked about how my Foster parents can help me feel less stress when they need to leave the house without me. I get very upset and bark when they have to leave; I do settle down and Im not destructive but I have happy tails when they return. Im not ready to be adopted yet, we are working on some things to help me feel secure.

I would do best in a quiet home with no children under 12. I need my person to be home most of the time, and be willing to follow through with showing me how to feel confident and secure. A fenced in yard is necessary and if you like to walk and hike, Im your man because its my favorite thing to do! At the end of the day, Ill snuggle next to you on the couch.

UPDATE BIO: 12/01/20. Look at this sweet face!!! After having some time to spend with Buck, we are now ready to find this baby his furever lap with lots of belly rubs to offer! Precious Buck is an adorable 6-yr-old, 10-12lb yorkie, who absolutely loves his people. He was raised by his surrendering mom and dad, along with 7 grandchildren through his 6yrs in their home.

What brought Buck to UYR was that this baby nipped at a 31/2yr old's hand that was reaching out to pat him while he was laying down. Whether this was due to fear or a startle reflex, and although his mom's heart was broken at the thought of surrendering , the family as a unit agreed it was best to try and place this baby into rescue so that a home that was free of "young children" might guarantee a better future for this sweet baby. Since Buck has no aggression or prior issues, and this could have been a normal response for a dog, we do feel that

Buck would do best in a home with no children under the age of 12. We would ideally love that his adopters are stay at home owners. We would also prefer his potential adopter have a fenced yard. Buck does get anxious when he realizes his person is about to leave him alone but he will calm down eventually. He does take an inexpensive medication to help with his anxiety and we are working on this and hope that his furever mom or dad will be willing to see that his time alone is minimal or that he is allowed to go on outings. This little boy deserves someone that will help him regain his self confidence and reassurance and will always be there for him. He is just 6yrs old and full of love to give for years! If you feel you can offer this doll baby a furever home, please fill out an application at www.uyr.us or contact foster mom at fortheloveofyorkies42@gmail.com.

Initial Bio 9/9/2020: Buck was surrendered to UYR because he nipped at a toddler who startled him when he was sleeping. Although Buck had been around children since a pup, the family felt it was in Buck's best interest to rehome him. It was a very difficult and heartbreaking decision for his mom, but Buck has always been an anxious boy and she has noticed his anxiety has increased and felt this was the best option for him. Buck is anxious/nervous, circles at times due to the turmoil. We will update with Bucks progress as we learn more about him and his needs. We have plenty of time and patience for this handsome boy.


To date we've spent $1317.94 on Buck's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $557.00 in donations.

Update 1/2/2021 Ollie saw a specialist for his sudden onset blindness; due to the length of time from the onset of blindness before coming to UYR and treatment while with us, Ollies vision has not improved. This little gentleman is like an old soul; he is very easy going, but dont let that fool you. Ollie doesnt have any problem navigating the house, yard or water bowl. Ollie has the cutest little strut when hes happy...hell bounce around and give a little bark while trotting outside. He just loves sitting next to his person and just being a couch potato .

Ollie would do best with someone that wants a quiet, loving companion, that will keep them company and welcome his sweet soft kisses.

Updated Bio 2/28/21:

Barney Rubble came into Rescue with multiple medical issues that needed to be addressed. His kidney values were elevated and due to his other medical needs he was referred to Blue Pearl to see an internal medicine specialist. What had to be worked on first is his Kidney Values. Barney was admitted into the hospital. He had to stay for 4 and a half days for Fluid Therapy with antibiotics. They were checking his blood each day and his kidney values kept going down and that last day there were completely normal. He is taking 3 different medications that he will be on for the rest of his life. Barney had pulmonary hypertension, several bladder stones and gallbladder issues. He has a mouth full of rotten teeth. Due to his all the medical issues the only way he will be put under for surgery for the bladder stones and teeth will be if it is an emergency. Barney has now been put on a Kidney prescription diet and he will have fluids at home given to him by IV three times a week to keep him from being dehydrated since his system isnt working properly. He doesnt act like a sick boy right now. He is eating good, giving love and following Foster Mom all over the house. He loves exploring outside and is housetrained. We want to give him the best quality of life and that is why he is receiving such special care. Please consider donating, his vet care is almost 6,000 and we have received about 2,100 in donations.

Dottie Belle
Tennessee
Dottie Belle

Dottie Belle is a 13 year old (estimated) Yorkie Poo mix who weighs about 9lbs and is being fostered near Ashland City, TN.

THANK YOU TO DOTTIE BELLE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Yvette Vangeloff, Jayne Newell, Anonymous Facebook Donors, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Marianna Pazik in loving memory of Ann C. Pazik

Updated Bio 2/28/21

Dottie Belle came into Rescue in November and she was in pretty bad shape. She was weak and super skinny and flea infested. She has no teeth and her bottom jaw has withered in due to bad periodontal disease. She needed help eating her soft food. One of eyes was crusted over, sunk in a bit and very infected. She was probably born with the sunken eye and it ruptured at some point causing the infection. The Vet decided that the removal of the eye would benefit her as it doesn’t function and it would always stay infected unless treated with eye medication for life.

Dottie had been having some episodes at night where she waking up and barking, confused as to where she is. The vet thinks she could have been suffering from Canine Cognitive Dysfunction. We have been successful treating this condition with Trazodone one hour before bed. She also sleeps with Foster Mom now and will stay in bed with no restlessness and doesn’t wake up till Foster Mom does. Dottie loves to be close to Foster Mom on the couch as well. She absolutely adores food! She eats it right up and knows when the meal times are. She loves to explore outside and even though she is blind, her hearing and smell is excellent and helps her get around. Dottie is now at a healthy weight and her skin and hair is doing good. She gets along well with the other doggies in the house. She is not potty trained but if you are home with her and take her out often she will do well. When your not home she can be left in an open pen with puppy pads. Dottie deserves to be loved and cared for during this time in her life. She has already suffered to much. Taking care of an older dog may involve a little more work, but caring for one is a deeply rewarding experience for they give you so much love in return. If your interested in giving Dottie a forever home please email Foster Mom at Mandy@unitedyorkierescue.org.

Updated Bio 1/23/21

Dottie Belle has made tremendous progress! She has adjusted well in her foster home.

Updated bio 12/22/20: Dottie had her stitches out of her eye that had to be removed today. She is doing good and we are sure she is more comfortable without that eye staying infected anymore. She has gained much needed weight so she is now a healthy 9 pounds. Dottie has been having some episodes at night where she wakes up and barks confused as to where she is. She is completely blind but can hear and smell well. The vet thinks she has Sundowner Syndrome (canine cognitive dysfunction) it can lead to confusion, restlessness, repetitive pacing, barking for no apparent reason, irritability, or neediness. We are now giving her melatonin at least 30 minutes before bed and she can have Trazodone one hour before bed. This has helped so much. Dottie will need a forever home that understands senior care and will love her unconditionally. She is a sweet girl who was saved from a kill shelter who enjoys her loving, her food , her warm bed and she even doesnt mind dressing up. If you are interested in adoption her please fill out an application for this sweet girl who has just a little bit of special needs but does need a person of her very own.

Updated Bio 12/3/20: Dottie Belle is doing so much better since she first came into rescue. She is eating well all on her own and has gained about 1-2 pounds. Her skin is looking better and her ear infections are just about healed up. She is has a bath with special shampoo and a supplement to help her skin continue to heal up. She is also on a supplement for her arthritis. Her left eye is still giving her trouble, she is having it removed on the 10th of December. Dottie isnt a cuddler, but she enjoys being petted. She needs a home with an understanding family who knows how to care for Senior dogs. She eats and sleeps most of the time but does like to roam around a bit outside when it isnt too cold. If you can please donate to her care and say a prayer that this sweetie gets a home of her very own soon. That is her Christmas Wish.

Updated Bio 11/9/20: Dottie Belle came into rescue last Tuesday. She was either dumped or found wondering the streets which landed her at a shelter in not very good condition. She was flea infested, severely matted, her eyes were matted shut and she was malnourished and extremely weak. The shelter reached out to Rescue and now she is in good hands on her way to recovery. Once cleaned up we noticed an infection in one of her eyes. Its there but is sunk in a bit. The vet said she was probably born with this condition and it ruptured at some point which has caused the infection she has. We will be treating her eye for a couple of weeks but we will will be scheduling the removal of her eye so it doesnt bother her anymore and it does not function anyhow. She does suffer from ear infections and will be treated for that the next couple of weeks also. She has no teeth and has suffered in the past from bad periodontal disease which has caused her bottom jaw to wither in. Foster mom has been working with her to find her food bowl and helping her eat till she gets the hang of it in her own. She is doing well at drinking her water. The good news is that her bloodwork came back good, she is heartworm negative and her fecal was negative. She has been spayed. Her heart sounds good and her body is ok, just needs to get her skin healthy and put a couple of pounds on her. She is now up to date on all shots and is on heartworm and flea prevention. She will be microchipped when she has her eye surgery. Dottie Belle is very sweet and does what most Senior dogs do. She adores her new soft big bed, loves to eat, enjoys her water and wants love and affection. Never underestimate how much love a senior dog can give when rescued. She needs a forever place to live the rest of her life in feeling loved, secure never having to wonder if she will be clean safe and fed. If you are interested in giving Dottie Belle that please email Foster mom with more questions.

Initial Bio 11/5/20: Dottie Belle came into Rescue this week. She came from a shelter in TN and she is in pretty bad shape at the moment. She is weak and super skinny. She has no teeth and her bottom jaw has withered in, she needs help eating her soft food and she loves it so much. No telling how much food she had to eat before she ended up in the shelter. One of eyes crusts over and is sunk in a bit and her other eye is cloudy. She has her Vet appointment Monday and we will find out what all is going on with this sweetie and she can enjoy a new life being cared for and loved.

THANK YOU TO MADISON'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Nancy Gill

01/13/2021

Madison is a sweet yorkie girl who 13 yrs old who weighs 7 lbs. She is very quiet and timid but will follow you around watching what you are doing. You would never guess she is about to be 14 yrs old in a couple of months. When she is tired she will find a quiet place to lay down and snooze. She will run out the door when opened and be ready to go with you anywhere she does not like to be left behind. Maddie does not bark a lot seems to only bark when the other dogs bark at home. She also has some anxiety which causes her to pant heavily at times. She loves attention but once the attention is finished she will return to her normal activities. Maddie would do best in a quiet home. She gets along with everyone but doesn't like a lot of loud noise and hectic house this can increase her anxiety. She is the perfect dog that you could take anywhere. If you feel your home would be a perfect fit please fill out an application

Initial Bio 11/13/2020: Sweet Madison (Maddie) recently arrived. She has the sweetest personality. She loves to follow you everywhere and if you would pack her that is even better in her book. front of a door or window where the sun can shine in on her. So far the only time she barks a lot when she is left alone or away from her foster family. barks. She would do best in a home where some was available full time...She likes to be your main focus of attention. She loves to ride in the car... So she would travel well. She will be going to the dogter very soon to get an overall check-up.

Updated Bio 2/18/2021

Paris was surrendered from an elderly family who could no longer care for her needs. Since Paris has came into Rescue we have updated all her shots and she has seen the eye Dogtor and she needs to be on eye drops 2x daily due to her advanced cataracts to prevent pain and inflammation.

Paris had an Echo of her heart last Friday and it was determined that she has pulmonary hypertension and a severe heart murmur. It could be age related . She had stopped eating on Saturday and Sunday she had two seizures In a row. Foster Mom rushed her to a hospital In Nashville so specialist can see what is happening to this sweetheart. They decided to treat for seizures for life and the heart issues. If we put her under for an MRI due to her heart issues it is extremely risky. Paris is now at home and is eating baby food until we can get her back on her regular food. She is happy and warm in her bed. If you would like to donate to her continued care please click the PayPal button underneath. She is truly a sweetie and Foster Mom is thankful that the Rescue is able to help With Paris’s medical needs.

Updated Bio 1/25/21

Paris is such a sweetie pie! She had her eye Dogtor appointment and she has advanced Cataracts her lenses are slipping due to that. She is on an ibuprofen eye drops to keep them from being irritated and she will need to take that for life. She has a recheck on her eyes February 9th. She has her echo of her heart on February 12th. We need to see what grade heart murmur she has before putting her under for her dental. Her little mouth is full of rotten teeth. Her hair and skin are healthy and her ears. She loves to be dressed up and wants you to hold her and cuddle. She eats well and gets along with other dogs as long as they give her space. She has been blind a long time but her hearing is great as well as her since of smell. She will do great in a home where someone is home most of the time. She is potty trained but you need to make sure to take her out on a regular basis. She spins to go so you know when she is about to potty.

Updated Bio 1/06/21

Paris had her Dogtors appointment this afternoon and she is now up to date on her yearly shots and has tested Heartworm and Fecal negative which is very good news. As you can see from her picture she has severe cataracts in both eyes, one of her eyes has a slipped lense. She is being referred to they eye Dogtor to see what may need to be done to help this as it can cause Glaucoma. Her Bloodwork came back all good but she does have a Kidney Infection which is being treated with an Antibiotic. The Dogtor heard a Heart Murmur and she will need An Echo to see what grade and if any issues before proceeding with her much needed dental. Paris has now been in her Foster Home now for three weeks and she is eating and sleeping well. She gets along with other dogs but due to her sight issues she doesnt like a hyper dog getting in her space it scares her. She enjoys being held and loved on. She sleeps on a pillow by Foster mom at night. Paris likes to explore around the front fenced in yard. She rides great in a car. Paris is potty trained but will have accidents if not taking out on a regular basis. She would do great with a family who is home most or all the time. She would also be a great dog to travel with. Due to her small size no children under 12 and will need to be watched around small children visiting. She can be snippy when startled and when she is being bathed and groomed. Could be because of her sight issues or just cause she is older and grumpy and doesnt like to do what she doesnt want lol! She doesnt mind wearing clothes and she loves lazing around in a doggie bed during the day. If you are interested in this sweetheart please fill out an application or email foster mom with more questions.

Baxter
Texas
Baxter TX (nee Nicky)

Meet Baxter, an adorable 10 year old, 13 pound Yorkie boy being fostered in Pflugerville, TX. Due to COVID concerns, only Texas applicants will be considered.

THANK YOU TO BAXTER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Lynne Turner, Kerry Redding, Lynne Turner

BIO UPDATE: 01/25/21. Baxter had surgery last week for his neuter and to fix the hole in the roof of his mouth. The vet has no idea how it happened, however it is definitely from an injury. The vet performed a skin graft, however 3 days later Baxter somehow managed to rip the stitches and the hole is back. He has a consultation with a specialist on February 2, where they'll tell us what can be done. He's eating well, now that the foster mom has found a thick pate he can just swallow that doesn't go into his sinuses. He's a happy boy who loves sleeping in foster mom and dad's bed, and demands belly rubs in the morning upon waking up. Potty training is going well, and he even has asked to go outside a few times.

Baxter would be happy in a home as an only dog, or small dogs (he gets along with those fine). Cats and larger dogs we would not recommend. He is also great with kids. Foster mom will update more after his consultation!

INITIAL BIO. 12/08/20. Howdy! My name is Baxter. Nice to meet you! I had been residing in a shelter in North Texas, where I was taken as I was roaming the streets. No one has come to get me though, so the nice folks at UYR took me in! My foster mom just got me groomed and oh my gosh do I feel and look better! Like, is there a Tinder for dogs? (Oh, won't need that as they're getting me neutered next week anyway....oh well). My foster mom said she'll know more about how house trained I am after that...I will say I have not done #2 in the house! I even asked to go outside last night.

One fun fact about me is that I have no teeth. I think it makes me pretty special (hello, cute tongue hanging out)! My foster mom found a nice thick pate she cuts up that I can eat just fine! I need to gain some weight so that's perfect for me (I'm about 11 lbs right now...and gaining!). I get along great with other dogs....my foster family has 2 small and 2 big ones; I like 'em all! Cats? Not so much. I like their human kids, though! They give me belly rubs a lot....that's a favorite. I do sleep all night in a little bed they got me that is next to their bed.

As far as my age....well, I am not sure! The dogtor says I am "middle aged". My foster mom is too, and she said that's a pretty good age to be.

Buster
Texas
Buster

Meet Buster Brown, a 12 year young, big Yorkie boy at 22 pounds who is being fostered in Azle, TX. Due to COVID, only Texas applicants will be considered.

THANK YOU TO BUSTER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Susan Walker, Patsy Beatty

Initial Bio 2-15-21: Meet Buster Brown, a 17 pound, 13 year old boy who will melt your heart with all his gentleness and preciousness! Sadly, his owner, who has had him since he was a puppy, made the most loving and difficult decision to surrender him to United Yorkie Rescue after she became very ill and was in the hospital on several occasions. Buster is a bit overweight and foster mom has him on Royal Canine Saiety for weight loss. He has lost about 4 or 5 pounds! Buster Brown has low vision and is a little hard of hearing but with the help of the other dogs in his foster home, he gets around just fine. He loves people, and loves the other fur brothers in the house.

This senior would do best in a home with another small, gentle dog, but it is not a requirement. Buster Brown needs a home that is calm and quiet with someone that is home during the day and just wants to love on him. He has had a dental and blood work and overall, he is healthy. His liver needs a little support so he is on an over the counter medicine to help with that.

This precious boy needs a soft place to fall to live out his remaining years. He has only known love and kindness and he needs a family that will continue to give him that security. Small children are not appropriate for this senior boy. If you think you have the perfect home for Buster Brown, please fill out an application at www.uyr.us


To date we've spent $707.52 on Buster's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $100.00 in donations.

Butter
Texas
Butter

Meet Butter, a sweet 9 year old, 9 pound Yorkie boy being fostered in Fort Worth, TX. Due to COVID, only Texas applicants will be considered.

Initial Bio 3/7/21: Poor little 9yr, 9lb Butter aka Buster. He lost his family due to financial difficulties and ended up at the shelter as a result. My heart breaks for these innocent ones so here he is! I have had this little man in my home one day and I can tell you, whoever becomes his furever will have hit the jackpot. He is an absolute gentle sweetheart. The first few hours he had so much to say LOL... honestly, he will talk to you!! I proceeded to give him a good massaging bath where I took about 2inches off eye goop off along with kennel smell. He ate a good meal...I actually hand fed him to help him through his anxiety with his fursibling present. Then we put on his tee shirt, and as you can see in the picture, he slowly fell into that deep slumber that comes after the scary noisy shelter and he slept like a baby until morning. Today, Butter acts like this has always been home. He supposedly had GI issues so I'm observing that and the only things medically I can see he needs are a dental and a couple of normal skin moles removed. We will see my vet this week. His bloodwork is amazing! Butter gets along with everyone, cats included. Im not certain that young children and their busy daily noises of play would be ideal, but we can consider your home on a one on one basis. He is 100% housetrained too! I think Butter would love to have someone who would offer him belly rubs quite often. He seems to have lacked a lot of one on one but is truly loving it here!! Please, if you feel you have the purfect forever home for this sweet baby boy, please fill out an application. Foster mom email is yorkiefostertx@gmail.com.

BIO UPDATE: 02/15/21. This little 4lb angel had his first vetting updating his vaccinations, a dental and cleaning. Sadly, Buttons has a tooth that has entered into the jaw and will need special attention. Due to his horrific dental disease, Buttons also had 2 canines that were so bad they've left an open fistula into his nasal cavity. Although these were filled during his dental, sadly he sneezed the filling out. We will address this too. We have setup his neuter this upcoming week and the following week we will see another vet to hopefully care for the rest of his dental needs. This is alot for such a tiny baby but that is why we break up these vetting apts to protect his tiny body!

Please keep this little nugget in your prayers these next 2 wks, and if possible please help us by donating to this angels needs at www.uyr.us. His beginning was rough...but we have him now! Thank you and bless you!!

Initial Bio 1/29/21: I think Buttons ended up in our care as a discarded breeder. We see this quite often. He most definitely has had zero care in his short little life. His first vetting occurred today. This sweet baby has been miserable with his teeth, and even sneezing, as if he has had an upper respiratory infection. However, his horrible teeth actually tells his story. Buttons nails were even splintered and so shattered as this is what we have seen when they try to escape their wooden crates. This little adorable baby needs an immediate dental as his mouth is full of pus and infection. Due to his tiny size, we will do his dental first then schedule him to be neutered. His dental will occur this next Monday while he takes antibiotics over the weekend to get him some immediate relief from the pain. Today's vet visit shows him to be quite healthy otherwise. Little Button is a 4 to 6 yr old baby and weighs in at a mere 4.4ozs. He does have the tricolors so he may be a tiny Parti at that. Please keep this angel in your prayers as we tend to his immediate needs. Donations can be made at www.uyr.us and foster mom can be reached at yorkiefostertx@gmail.com. Thank you and bless you!

UPDATE BIO: 01/13.21. On February 2nd, Crystal will have been in rescue for 2 years. She came from a horrific puppy mill and endured such a horrible life until that day. Today, Crystal still is very frightened of loud noises or any voices that are raised. She will run immediately to the closet where her safe room awaits. She will also stiffen and cower when a hand is reached to her for love. Somethings like this may take years to overcome. She is very loving. Once she feels the touch she will keep moving in for more loves. Crystal will also come to my desk and ask to be on the couch with me and snuggle up behind me. She also sleeps on the bed with her humans and her other fur siblings at bedtime. When I bring a new foster into the home, Crystal is the first to run and jump with excitement! You can tell she was truly an amazing mommy back in her days as she just loves all the babies.Emotionally, she is still very reserved but has much love to show and give. She gets excited for meals, when she gets up in the morning she greets every baby on the floor as they come off the bed like her. She loves to roll in the grass and will want to stay outside to enjoy the sunshine on a cold day where the sun is warming the ground. God love her!

Medically, Crystal is doing well. She is currently on inexpensive Thyroid and reflux inexpensive meds. Crystal also receives a cytopoint shot once every 2 months or so for itching. She has a revisit with the vet next week for a skin scraping as Crystal has recurring skin infections due to her horrible conditions she endured for years while in captivity in the mill. Crystal also has dry eyes and has lost most of the sight in her right eye. It does not affect her in any way other than when you reach out for loves, you should move slowly on her left side. Other than that, Crystal has gone through many surgical procedures and intensive medical illnesses and has recovered remarkably.

If you feel you have the home to give this sweet girl knowing emotional healing still needs to come, please reach out to me directly at yorkiefostertx@gmail.com.

UPDATE BIO: 09/13/20.

As you can see, sweet Crystal has been with me for almost 2 years! Having come from the puppy mill that we shut down in the Valley View Area of Texas in early 2019, this little lady has had her share of issues. This is pretty typical of mill babies since their care is non-existent, but also their lifestyle, lack of love and attention, and living conditions also traumatize these angels.

Medically, as you see, we have spent over $12K on this baby girl. Crystal had life saving pyometra surgery within 30 minutes after we left the hell hole. Unbeknown to us, she had a deadly skin infection that invaded her surgical site and she was taken into critical care due to her MRSP. She required addl surgery to clean the surgical site and remove the infection that was trapped inside. Within the next few months she was back in surgery to have both sides of her mammary chains removed due to carcinoma found in one of her MANY mammary tumors. Of course we had a mouthful of infection, infected ears, and eyes that were oozing of green pus due to her living conditions and untreated dry eyes to care for as well. Currently, Crystal only takes thyroid medication and an antacid for her reflux.

Emotionally, Crystal has jumped through hoops to get where she is today. This baby still cowers when you go to touch and she tries to run. If you verbally correct any other dog, she is the first to run for cover and hide. Now she LOVES to be placed by you and get belly rubs and get her hair brushed, and she loves to sleep on the bed. She loves treats and she loves her food. She loves to sit outside and roll in the grass. If you want to see the true love of this puppy mill baby, it's when I bring in another tiny rescue! This is like her having her first Christmas, as she absolutely loves the babies!!

Today, Crystal is doing well. Once again we were in surgery to remove her spleen due to a large mass that had grown inside. We had just finished another round of special antibiotics as she was positive for the MRSP again on her skin. She looks absolutely beautiful again!

Will Crystal ever find her furever home?? I don't know. Life with Crystal would be one where you can have a baby by you and cuddle with you on the couch or in bed. She doesn't have many wants at all. She never asks for anything and is a very quiet little girl. She does NOT like storms. She loves to sit in the sun and roll and rub her back in the grass. She LOVES her baths. She loves to be brushed. She is not a tiny girl so you do not have to worry about her with other dogs. She does not jump on furniture and she will stay where she is put. She loves all animals and is fine around children. For the most part Crystal is housebroken but her housetraining is still ongoing. She is a beautiful gentle soul and for all intensive purposes, she is happy and healthy. If you feel you may have the perfect home for this angel or if you would like additional information regarding Crystal, please email foster mom at yorkiefostertx@gmail.com.

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.

Lola
Texas
Lola (aka Darla)

Meet Lola, the daughter of Mimi. She is 15 months old, weighs 4 pounds and is being fostered in Midlothian, TX. Due to COVID concerns, only Texas applicants will be considered.

Initial Bio 3-1-21: Daughter Lola is about 15 months and around 4 pounds. She has a severe case of patella luxation which has resulted in “lameness” of her back legs. You can tell that she drags her legs at times to get around and cannot quite get up or on furniture. She’s quite feisty and demanding though-she has definitely adapted to her condition and doesn’t let it keep her down. She’s very defensive of her mama Mimi- she will charge up to the other dogs in the home and bark at them if they come sniffing her mama. She’s a spitfire for sure. She, too, loves her foster parents and the 1.5 year old in the house. She gives so many kisses and is desperate for human attention. She does really well in a crate, but is still currently working on house training. She’d likely do well in a home by herself or with one other submissive dog that tolerates her well.


To date we've spent $273.66 on Lola (aka Darla)'s vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Lucas
Texas
Lucas (aka Peluche)

Meet Lucas, a 5 year old, 20 pound Yorkie mix being fostered in Texas.

THANK YOU TO LUCAS' RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Lynne Turner Karen McKeand

Initial Bio 2/23/21: Sweet Lucas came into rescue from an area shelter with weakness in his back limbs. His x-rays showed a dip in a disc. Later, a neighbor called into the shelter to inform them that this baby had been hit by a car as this was captured on their ring doorbell. We immediately started this baby on steroids, pain meds and something to protect his tummy. Upon arrival to foster mom, he began to lose the function of his legs. Upon our vet reviewing the x-rays, we opted to transport him to her care. Lucas was put on IV steroids and has been treated with laser therapy and acupuncture this past week. He can stand with assistance and has shown some improvement. We hope to see this continue, but we are very early into this baby's care and know things can change. Please keep Lucas in your prayers and if possible, please consider a donation to United Yorkie Rescue. Lucas is a young baby that is an absolute love bug who will someday bless someone with his kisses as he heals. We will keep you posted as we continue with his care.


To date we've spent $0 on Lucas (aka Peluche)'s vet bills, but with your support we've collected $245.00 in donations.

Sandy Pagnotta

Sparky
Texas
Sparky

Meet Sparky, a 10 year old, 5 pound little boy being fostered in Georgetown, TX. Due to COVID concerns, only Texas applicants will be considered.

Initial Bio/3/3/21 This adorable 5lb 10 year old boy came to UYR on 2/28 from a shelter that found him as a stray. From the moment he was picked up even at the shelter this little guy was full of love for everyone. He has had his vetting and will be having dental surgery as well as his left eye removed due a birth defect. It is already very small and constantly has an infection so the vet has assured us that he will feel so much better. His long lashes are constantly rubbing and causing irritation. He has a dry skin condition that has caused him hair loss on his lower back. He is on his antibiotics for his dental and skin and in the short time he has been in care his hair is growing back healthy. He does have a luxating patella that appears to accentuate when he walks but it doesn't stop this little guy from jumping up and insisting you hold him and carry him everywhere. A follow up on Sparky will follow after his surgery March 10.


To date we've spent $426.08 on Sparky's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.
Please donate!

Belle

Meet Belle, a sweet 1.5 year old, 9 pound Yorkie Mix being fostered in Madison, WI. Due to COVID, no out of state applicants will be considered.

THANK YOU TO BELLE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Lynsey Alegria

Initial Bio - 03/07/21 Belle arrived to her foster home yesterday as an owner surrender. Belle was in her second home but has some reactive issues that need help. She will be visiting the vet this week for an annual checkup but looking at past vet records she is in good health. Belle loves sitting on her foster moms lap and just being near a person. She does react with a growl and barking when approached but she calms down once she feels safe; we will work on this with training. She does walk on a leash but pulls a bit so that will also need some work also.
