Noah and his new mommy. She loves him so much
Noah

5-9-18 Little Noah was adopted today. Noah came into United Yorkie Rescue from a hoarder/breeder home where he was one of many many dogs living in horrible conditions. He was not even 4 pounds and underweight. Noah was very cared for in his foster home where he put on some weight, got all his vaccinations and his neuter. He was finally cared for and loved, but he really needed his own forever home. Today sweet Noah went to his forever home. He has a wonderful new mom and dad, lots and lots of doggie beds and toys, and more love than any dog could want. Noah will never see the inside of a cage again, he will never have to be worried about getting enough food, and he will always have a warm, soft, dry place to spend all his days and nights.

Phineas found his forever and ever home
Phineas

5/7/18 Phineas was adopted today. Phineas came from a horrible situation. He was one of 26 dogs owned by a breeder hoarder. His one job was to make beautiful puppies and he did that well. But it was a job without love or medical care. Thankfully another rescue group asked for our help in taking as many of these sweet pups as we could. Phineas was one of 10 dogs United Yorkie Rescue took and put into our foster homes. There was no way we would turn away from any of them. Phineas thrived in his foster home. He received the love and care he needed. He put on a little weight; got the medical care he was in great need of and learned that people are good, kind, and caring. He loved everyone he met whether they had two feet or four. He was a happy and loving little dog who only needed one more thing and that was his forever home. Phineas found that perfect home and today he was somebody’s own little guy. He has a fur sister and a great new mom and dad who promised him he would be loved and cared for the rest of his life. His only job now was to play with toys, give and get kisses, and be a puppy again since he never was able to be one before. What a happy life ahead for little Phineas, the perfect pup.

Beautiful Lulu has her forever home
LuLu

5/7/18 Lulu was adopted today. This sweet girl who found herself in the shelter was adopted today and went to the best forever home ever. Her first family surrendered her to the shelter and asked that she be euthanized because she may have had a convulsion the night before. The shelter did not think that a dog without a history or seizures should be euthanized and they reached out to their rescue partners to take this sweet girl in. United Yorkie Rescue did just that. Lulu was so happy in her foster home. She loved everyone she met, people, dogs, and even kids. She lost some of the weight that she needed to and had all her medical needs taken care of. Finally Lulu got the home of her dreams. They didn't care that she may have a trachea issue or that she is not a puppy. They took her in to love her forever and forever. She has a wonderful fur brother and a home with doggie beds, doggie toys, and lots and lots of love.

Olivia and her new daddy
Olivia

5-6-18 Little Olivia was adopted today. This sweet girl spent most of her life with her first mommy. Then her mommy was no longer able to care for Olivia and give her the time and attention she needed. Olivia found herself alone for hours and hours at a time. It just wasn't fair, and she was so sad. Her mom knew things had to change for Olivia and so she became a United Yorkie Rescue girl. She is vision and hearing impaired, but it only took a few minutes and she was able to find her way around her foster home with no trouble. Olivia loved the attention her foster mom was able to give her and she was happy there. Today forever love came into Olivia's life. Her forever daddy adopted her and has promised Olivia to love and care for her until the very end. Olivia is such a happy girl. She loves her foster daddy and she knows she will get so much love and attention. Happy Tails to sweet Olivia.

Bella

Bella was reluctantly surrendered to UYR by her owners who loved her, but they felt Bella would have a happier life if she was in a home where she would get more attention. She is a very smart and well-mannered little girlie who settled in nicely in her foster home.

Bernie has a new mommy and a perfect forever home
Bernie

4-22-18 Bernie was adopted today. Bernie found himself in the shelter though no fault of his own. His owners were no longer able to care for him so they took him to the shelter. Bernie sat in the shelter for several days waiting for someone to adopt him or come to his rescue. At last United Yorkie Rescue did. Bernie needed to see the vet as soon as possible. He has a perinea hernia, which affected his ability to have a bowel movement. The hernia was the size of a baseball on poor Bernie’s bottom. This poor little fella had to contort himself like a pretzel to have a bowel movement. He also needed his mouth and teeth cared for as well as a neuter. When all that was done, and it took awhile for Bernie to recover from his hernia surgery, and he was feeling much better he was ready for his forever home. This terrific dog who is so well behaved needed a home with someone there to love him all the time. He gets along great with other dogs, but loves people more. Finally the right mommy came along and wanted to make Bernie her forever pup. His new mommy works from home a lot and that is just fine with Bernie. There is a dog park near by and lots of other dogs in the neighborhood. Bernie is one lucky fellow. He found his perfect forever home.

Rascal and his new mommy and fur brother
Rascal

4/19/18 Rascal was adopted today. Rascal came to UYR looking for much needed love and attention. His former daddy got very sick and the family was unable to care for Rascal. They did not have the means to care for Rascal, nor did they have the time to give a young 9 month old puppy the time and attention a puppy needs. That all changed when Rascal went to his forever home today. Rascal’s new mommy works from home and can spend quality time with Rascal during the day. Rascal’s new daddy works outside of the home but can’t wait to spend his evenings and weekends doting on Rascal. Rascal is so excited because he has a fur brother that is young and loves to play with him. He also has a larger fur brother who is recovering from surgery and can’t wait to start playing with Rascal. There is a large fenced yard and a pool for summer enjoyment. Rascal hit the jackpot with his new family…Thank you to Rascal’s furever family.

Tess and her mew mom and dad.
Tess

4015/18 Little Tess was adopted today. Tess arrived at her foster home limping badly and lifting her right leg up. That was not the way a 4.5-year-old pup should be walking. Her foster mom knew right away this was more than just a bad knee. Tess had already been through enough, but it wasn’t over yet. Her first mommy died and then her daddy got very sick and was dying. He could not longer care for poor Tess. Her foster mom knew, though, that Tess's problems were just beginning and they were. The vet checked her right leg and confirmed Tess would need surgery to repair her ligament and to put her knee back into place instead of it wobbly all around. On February 26th Tess had her surgery. It was a rough surgery because she also needed an umbilical hernia repaired at the same time. Poor Tess came home like looking so sad and so sore. She slept the first 2 days. It took a while but finally Tess healed and was walking on her right leg most of the time. It took almost 2 months, but finally Tess was finally able to go to her forever home. She met her new mom and dad and it was love. Tess, who is usually shy and timid, seemed right at home with her new mom and dad. Tess found the perfect home for her. No other dogs, a nice fenced yard to watch the squirrels, and a mom and dad who were home most of the time to be with her. Tess found her forever home for sure. Her foster mom and dad want Tess to know they will miss her, but they know her life will be filled with so much love and happiness.

Daisy and her new family
Daisy

4-14-18 Daisy was adopted today. Daisy was sadly surrendered because she was very unhappy. She was living with her mom and 5 other dogs who were much bigger than her. She was scared all the time and spent her day hiding in her crate. Her mom knew that sweet Daisy was just so scared and unhappy with all those other dogs around her that she had to find her a happier, better place. Daisy became a United Yorkie Rescue and went to her foster home where there are only 2 others dogs. It is a lot quieter and her new foster fur siblings are gentler and kinder to darling Daisy. Daisy did great in her foster home, but really wanted a forever home of her own. Today she met and fell in love with her new family. Her stay at home mom and dad and one other small fur brother. She has a nice, quiet house, a really great fenced yard, and lots and lots of love and attention. Daisy found her forever home and now has her happily forever ever.

I am the happiest girl in the world
Lola

4-12-18 Sweet Lola was adopted today. Lola ended up somehow in a high-kill shelter. Because the shelter was so over-crowded, Lola was only one day away from being euthanized. United Yorkie Rescue could not let that happen to this precious little Yorkie "wannabe." We had to save her from such a fate. And so Lola became a United Yorkie Rescue baby. Her foster mom took her to the vet and found out that she had cataracts in both eyes. The cataract in her left eye was mature and she has very little vision in that eye. She was able to see shadows with her right eye. Somehow we had to find a way to restore Lola’s site in at least one eye if we could. With the help of our many angels we raised enough money for Lola to have cataract surgery on one eye. Her surgery was on 01/30 and although there were a few bumps along the road, Lola did great and now she can see. Imagine going from a dark world, to on filled with light. She explored everything she could with her new eyesight. The doggie eye doctor was very pleased with the results of the surgery. After several more trips to the eye surgeon for rechecks Lola was finally released and able to go to her forever home. That happened today. Lola has a wonderful new stay at home forever mom who she will have all to herself. She doesn’t have to share her mommy anymore. She has a beautiful fenced yard for running and sunning. Lola is also close enough to her eye surgeon for a few more check ups. Lola is the happiest little girl in the world. It is a world she can see and a mom to love her and care for her forever.

Haley and her wonderful new mom and fur siblings
Haley

4-10-18 Haley was adopted today. Things were pretty sad for Haley for a while. First her mom died and then her dad got very sick with cancer and could no longer take care of Haley. It was with so much sadness and a heavy heart that Haley became a United Yorkie Rescue dog. Haley’s foster mom and dad gave her a wonderful new life. She got along with the other dogs in her foster home and even the cats. They found that she loves being outside chasing the squirrels. She also loves just relaxing and sitting in the sun. But for Haley there is nothing better than sitting in her foster mom or dad’s lap and having a nice long cuddle with them. Haley learned some good doggie manners in her foster home and she was a happy girl. All that was missing was a forever home of her own, and that happened today. She has a terrific new mommy and two other fur siblings for friends. Best of all Haley has a wonderful fenced backyard, and can now chase all the squirrels she wants. She is so happy with her new family. Her foster mom and dad will miss her, but they know Haley has exactly the forever home she has always dreamed of.

Even Coco is smiling. She found her forever mommy and daddy
Coco

4/7/18 Coco was adopted today. Sweet, playful Coco the 7-month-old puppy was adopted today. You can see how happy she is with her new family. She is smiling along with her new mommy and daddy. Coco came to United Yorkie Rescue almost 3 months ago. She was only 4 months old and weighed a tiny 2.5 pounds. Her former vet told her owners, after some testing, he was sure Coco had a liver shunt and needed surgery right away. United Yorkie Rescue would never turn away a dog if we could help and Coco became a United Yorkie Rescue dog. In February she got her operation and stayed in her foster home for 2 1/2 months while she healed. The good news came when she had her follow up bile acids test and it came showing that the shunt surgery was a success. Hooray!! Coco was ready to find her forever home. Coco found the most perfect home. She has a wonderful fenced yard. She met the dog next door and they were already playing together. She has a stay at home mom and dad. Coco even has another home right on the beach. That will be fun, fun, fun for her. Her new mommy and daddy are ready to work with Coco as she continues to learn her proper puppy manners. It will be a wonderful life for Coco. She knows she is home forever with the best mommy and daddy any puppy could want

Braven Scout found his wonderful forever home
Braven Scout

3/30/18 Little Braven Scout was adopted today. It would have been a far sadder world had Braven Scout not been in it. How did such a sweet, tiny 2 pound, 2 1/2 month old puppy end up in a shelter, you might ask? Someone called the shelter and said they found a little puppy in a field. They asked animal control to, “come and get him.” It was a freezing cold day when the shelter worker went out on this call and found this tiny puppy in a box on the front porch. The shelter thought someone had to be searching for this adorable puppy. But no one ever came or called, and after two weeks passed the shelter reached out to United Yorkie Rescue. Of course we would take him. His foster mom rushed him to the vet, where after a through exam he was diagnosed him with a condition called Atresia Ani. This means his anus and possible rectum area did not develop and ultimately resulted in a fistula being formed. This is a tiny opening in the body that develops because of disease, infection, or injury, and if not treated is fatal. Little Scout was being forced, with lots of pain, to defecate through this tiny opening. Braven’s options were either a very expensive surgery or being put to sleep. There was no way UYR would put him to sleep and we went about the business of raising the money quickly to pay for this very expensive surgery. Braven is truly a brave little scout. And to the amazement of everyone, including his surgeon, his new man-made bottom is working great. After his surgery Braven spent the next two months in his foster home recovering while his foster parents learned how Braven would be affected by what the surgery had given him. His foster mom knew Braven would need a forever home with someone with lots of dog experience and someone home most of the time. Without a sphincter muscle when Braven has to go, he has to go, and he needs to be taken out immediately. Braven’s forever home has a mom and dad who are home most of the time, there is a nice fenced yard for him to run around in because he is, after all, a very active puppy, and he has a fur brother and sister to play with. Braven Scout will even start his puppy training classes soon. Life for this wonderful brave boy is going to be filled with love and happiness and nice warm baths to clean his perfect bottom when it needs it. Can anything be better?
