Maddie

6-25-17 Before Maddie was even 3 years old she had lived in three different homes. For one reason or another Maddie couldn't stay and it was never her fault. All she wanted was a forever home. She needed a home with no little children, but with people who would be with her most of the time. She loved people so much. Maddie also loves to run and a home with a fenced yard would make her forever life in her forever home perfect. Today that is what Maddie got and more. A wonderful new home with a fenced yard, no young children to bother her or scare her, a mom and dad who are home all the time, and even one more great thing, a fur brother who is just about her size and age. Maddie is in love wth her new life and her new mom and dad are crazy in love with Maddie too.

Bailey

6-25-17 Bailey is still very much a puppy at only 1-1/2 years old. This poor little fellow, before the age of 2 years old, has already had three different homes in his young life. His last owners loved him very much, but their job situation changed and Bailey was being left alone for long hours. They wanted him to be happy and have a better life, so they surrendered him to UYR. He loved his foster home and the older kids who lived there because being such a young dog he loved to play. He also learned how to walk nicely on a leash and on these great walks everyone he met was his friend no matter if they had 2 feet or 4 he loved them all. All Bailey lacked was a forever home to call his own. Bailey got that today. He has a wonderful new life with a fur sister just about his age and a great new dad who is even a stay at home kind of dad. Bailey will have so much fun playing with his fur sister. He will get to go on long walks with his dad and his sister. His life will be full of love and fun, and don't forget the toy box full of doggie toys, the doggie beds that are ready for him, and probably lots of treats, and for sure lots and lots of love and kisses.

Nemo and new family
Nemo

6/24/17 It took a long time, over 9 months, but Nemo did it!!! He finally got his forever home and his wonderful forever family. This little fellow who had been abandoned and neglected was rescued form the shelter and spent a long time with his foster parents getting ready for his forever family. He was diagnosed with Diabetes Insipdus, also known as "Water Diabetes." He needed medication to keep it under control. It took a while to find the correct dosage, but through trial and error it happened and Nemo has it under control. He also had a skin condition that required special baths and medication, but finally his hair grew back in and he is just the most beautiful pup ever. His foster parents knew it would take a special family to be his forever family and that is just what he got. His new mommy and daddy and his two human brothers are so excited to have him. They all know about Nemo's needs and they are ready for him and to love him forever. Wth four people in Nemo's new family someone will always be home to give him time and attention. They will take Nemo everywhere they can. Nemo is so happy to be say that now he has his forever home and his new forever and ever family.

Hope and new mom
Hope

6-24-17 A sweeter, more perfect little pup you would never find. This tiny, little 3.8 pound senior baby is finally at her last, final, and forever home. She has a wonderful new mommy and daddy and two fur sisters. Her mommy is a stay at home mom and will be home with Hope all the time. Hope will get so much love and attention. Hope is not much for playing and either are her fur sisters. They are just older pups who will love to lay around and give each other kisses every now and then. She has a nice fenced yard to wander around in and to lay out in the sun to catch a little nap. All this senior baby wants is a final home to rest her head and a person to cuddle and love her till the end. Today Hope found that. Happy life little Hope, and Happy Tails to you.

Thor

6-22-17 Sweet adorable Thor was adopted. This little boy went to his forever home today. At first it was thought he was blind in one eye, but that wasn't so. He has vision in both eyes, with an immature cataract in the left eye. The extreme dryness of his right eye is treated on a daily basis with a couple of drops of Tacrolimhus and Vetropolycin. Itís likely that he will need one or both of these drops for the rest of his life. But that is just fine with his new mommy and daddy. Thor loves belly rubs and to give kisses, so a life of kissing and belly rubs is sure to be his. His new mom and dad are the stay at home kind of people. Happily for Thor, he will hardly ever be alone. He will get to go on walks, play in the yard, swim in the pool if he wants to, and just be the love of their life. Thor couldn't be happier and life is the best it can be for him now.

Abby

6/18/17 Sweet young Abby was adopted today. Abby was picked up on the streets and ended up in the shelter She was severely anemic and infested with fleas. The shelter was afraid she would not make it through the night and they rushed her to the emergency vet to at least stabilize her through the night. The next morning our United Yorkie Rescue angel picked Abby up. She was taken immediately to the vet to get whatever care she needed. She had blood work done and much more. Poor Abby was so sick she didn't eat, drink, or pick her head up the whole day, but slowly she began to come back to life again. With the wonderful care she received from her vet and from her foster parents, Abby who is only about a year old, began to get better and better each day. It took over a month, but finally Abby was healthy enough to find her forever home. Abby's foster parents knew that Abby needed to be an only dog because Abby had let them know she was not too fond of any other fur friends in her home. Abby found that wonderful home and today she is the love of her new mom and dad's life and the very center of their world. She is their only baby girl and will never lack for anything again in her life. She sweet little girl went from the brink of death to living the life she was meant to. A life of happiness, love, kindness, and care. United Yorkie Rescue could not be happier for this puppy. She made it and she's home at least. Happy Tails little Abby, you deserve it.

Sheru

6/16/17: Sheru has left foster care! Furever is grand when such a sweet little guy, such as little Sheru, got a wonderful new Mom that is home during the day, (works at night, at the hospital) and Dad is home at night (works during the day, as a teacher). SO, Sheru has the best of both worlds! His furever promises early morning walks through the community, and then again at lunch, if it's not too hot, and then again in the evenings. Between all that walking, he can sleep on the big bed with Mom, and when Dad gets home he can play and sleep with Dad at night. He has a wonderful 2 story town home, in a lovely gated community in Greensboro NC. He has his own little patio that he can go outside, with a privacy fence so no one can see him when he goes to potty. Sheru's new mom and dad had everything ready for him today when he arrived and they were just so very happy to have this sweet little guy. Sheru will be the only pup for now, but in the future, who knows! Mom did say if he was really good, she might have another, please. For now, Sheru will be getting all the love, and belly rubs 2 wonderful people can dish out and this, my friend, is another . . . . Happy Tail!

Penny

6/15/17. Penny has found her forever home today. She came to us from an owner who loved her a great deal but couldn't care for her any longer. When this couple came Looking for Love they adopted 2 babies from UYR, a sweet bonded pair, Bogey and Birdie. Sadly, an accident took little Birdie's life. Tom and Missie, who had waited for over a year since losing their senior Yorkie Jenny, once again faced sadness. A month later, Penny, a little princess appeared who was perfect for this family. Penny has now found happiness with Bogey, Missie and Tom!!

Me and my new Mom and Dad
Cooper

6/10/17 Tiny, not even 4 pound, Cooper was adopted today. This young fellow needed a home where a puppy his age could run and have lots of fun. But he didn't want any cats or kids, and he wanted someone home with him most of the day. It had to be a special family for him. Cooper went to that special home today. He has a perfect mom and dad who stay home a lot and will be with him all the time. They promised to take him everywhere they go that a pup can go, to play with him, and let him run around in his nice fenced yard. Cooper will have a lot of fiends to play with too. We are so happy that Cooper the Cutie found his perfect forever home. He gets to live Happily Forever After for sure.

Here's what Cooper had to say about his new home and family:

My new mom and dad are the greatest ever! And a bonus - I have a new fur sister, Ella. Me and Ella hit it off right away. She loves to play as much as I do. I have a beautiful, safe backyard to run in while mom and dad watch me. They love to watch me and Ella run around, chase lizards and just have a great time.

I have a new comfy bed, lots of new toys and new clothes. I'll be "stylin". I met some new (human) neighbors. They both knew I was arriving today and had to stop by to meet me. They gave me kisses and I returned the same. They were so nice. What a day Iíve had. There were so many new and wonderful things and a great adventure. I think I'm gonna like it here. No, I'm gonna LOVE it here!

I wouldn't have this new life if my Foster Mom hadn't sprung me from Animal Control in April. I was so scared, but as soon as my Foster Mom held me, I knew I'd be safe and well cared for. I was sick when she picked me up, so she took me to a new dogtor who gave me some medicine and special food to help me gain weight. I weighed less than three pounds!

The good medicine and food soon had me feeling so much better. Oh, and the love I received from my Foster Mom really helped, too. I will forever be grateful for United Yorkie Rescue for saving my life. I am so happy now and I know I will be furever.

Jack

6/3/2017 - Boy, I began my day bright and early. Breakfast at 5:30 and by 6:30 am, I was in the car. The vet does not open until 7:45 where on earth were we going? I rode for 3 hours, stopping 3 times to stretch Foster Momís legs and to let her potty (she has to stop so many times!). Finally, we turned on this street, then we turned on another, and then I saw this pretty blonde lady standing outside. Boy, I thought, I wish she could be my furever mom, she sure looks like she would love me. Foster Mom passed by her house and went down to the end of the street, driving very slowly. Then we turned around and then Foster Mom saw the pretty lady in the drive way. Then we stopped. And then, guess what . . . . we got out! And then another lady came out of the house with a camera, and started taking pictures. Gee, I had no idea I was so famous. Then a truck drove up and this nice man got out to see me. He got off work just to meet me today. WOW! Next a pup came out of the house, his name is Simon, and he was the same size as me! What was this place . . . could this be my furever? Then we all went inside and the pretty lady showed me all the toys, and the food bowl. Simon let me have some of his water. Simon and I jumped on the couch and began to play with the nice man. Then I heard Foster Mom say ďOf course he can stayĒ . . was she talking about me? Yes! Simon and I jumped off the couch and we ran around the living room and the dining room chasing each other, wagging our tails and barking. Everyone was laughing, and I was so happy, because I had a furever. The pretty lady and the very nice man were going to be my mom and dad and I got a bonus, I got a brother too. As Foster Mom was leaving, belly rubs were in process, lots of love was being given and stories were being told of a big farm Grandma and Grandpa lived on, right down the street and Simon and I will be going there to play almost every day, with a little girl pup and we have lots and lots of room to run and play.

Thanks UYR for taking me in and finding me my furever. Iím gonna love it here!.

Love, Jack

Diego

With Fatima and Randy...the boys couldn't stop giving them kisses. They had already bought them beds, outfits, harness, toys in anticipation of approval..they were certain they had found their babies. They have that quality that all dogs would just love them. Fatima is a doting mother, not only to her daughter but to the babies. Randy as well.

They loved playing with Sofias Dimitri (former UYR foster Rebel) and Carmella and everyone loves everyone. Pj and Diego acted as if they belonged there. The boys loved the dogs, the family, courtyard, the house...everything. Sofia will be leaving the house soon, so there will be no fur babies in their home, and they prayed they would find their babies to love.

Fatima and I talk weekly since meeting her almost a year ago. I was processing her application for Jaspers adoption request and others that were coming in. She had hoped one day that they would be Jaspers new family but he became our FO. She has watched our site and called me regarding adoption again.

When she called me last week about the babies, I told her I had to make sure these babies were medically cleared before I did anything. I honestly was worried when they sent Diego labs to A&M but Sam explained it better to me when I picked up the paperwork. Their machine just could not get a definitive reading of his TSH...and it is in perfect range. Best news ever.

Fatima and Randy are beautiful, loving people that just have such a love of family and God. I'm so grateful they chose these 2 little seniors...it's such a win win. Happy Tails with lots of love for these sweet babies!

Lexi with her furever mom & dad
Lexi

Lexi has been adopted today and Foster Mom and UYR are over the moon excited and happy. Lexi came to us from a Vetís office in Sanford, FL where she had been dropped off by her owner that requested she be euthanized. They said she was urinating all over and biting the children.

Bless the Vet's office for contacting UYR and asking if we would take her. Lexi went home with foster Mom very frightened and unsure of her future. Foster Mom was sure that this little scared Angel would be with her for a very long time as she had been through so many changes and was so frightened it would take a long time for her to trust again. She was also a very sick little girl that needed medical care.

It took a while and a lot of Vet visits and a lot of care and understanding and love to get Lexi ready for her forever home. Foster Mom is so very proud of her. Lexi worked very hard to make this happen. She is a very strong determined girlie girl and she is not one to let her bad past dictate her bright, happy future.

The great news for Lexi is that her forever family Angels found her. They were so concerned for her and followed her progress. They knew that she was the one for them and that they were for sure her forever family. They never gave up and waited so patiently through all of her Vet visits and treatments.

Today was such a happy day!!! Lexi went home with her forever family and she will live the rest of her life loved and happy the way all rescue dogs should.
