Astro
California
Astro

Update 04/13/14: Update: Astro is a healthy boy, at 12.2 lbs. He will need a dental. He has adjusted well in his foster home, his potty habits are perfect. He has already learned how to use the doggie door, he is one smart boy! Unfortunately, he is very fearful of strangers. We are working on this, and I do see some improvements already! He is a great little walker. The perfect home for him would be a quiet one, where he is the only dog. No kids as the excitement would be too much for him.

Initial Bio: Meet Astro! He is 3 1/2 years old, 10 1/2 lbs. and all Yorkshire Terrier. He is an owner surrender. So far he gets along with the other dogs here. He is house trained and will be learning how to use a doggie door. He is being fostered in the Bay Area. More updates to come as I learn more about him.

Toby

Toby

THANK YOU TO TOBY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Alice Valencia

Update 04/13/14: Update: Toby is a good little boy. He is wondering why he has not been adopted. It is true he does not have the typical Yorkie body, but he is still cute as can be, and Mr. Personality plus. He will play ball as long as you will throw it. He is great with kids. He gets along with other dogs, as long as they are not dominant. And he minds his Foster Mom, so that is a plus.

Update 12/27/13: Toby has learned very quickly how to be a family member. He is just about perfect with his potty, using the doggie door. He is still possessive of his toys, and so must be monitored when he has toys, when around other dogs. My littlest yorkie, Peanut, has decided they are "besties." It is really cute to watch them play together.

Toby is a Yorkie mix. He is smart, and he minds. His worst habit is the deep bark, especially when the doorbell rings or when he hears one on the tv. But I keep a soda can with pennies in it, and rattle it. Toby hates that, and he quiets immediately. I still put him in the xpen if I have to leave, because he demonstrated some separation anxiety.

With all this being said, he is Mr. Happy Go Lucky. He has not met a person he doesn't like. My Son and his girlfriend were here for Christmas and fell in love with him. Unfortunately, they are not currently in a position where they can take on the responsibility of a dog. I see Toby with a young man, or a young family with a little older kids, as Toby will still jump when meeting new people. He must have an enclosed yard. He loves to play ball, or tug-a-war. He would be really fun to take to the dog park. He bonds very quickly, I am his new best friend, other than Peanut. If I am sitting, Toby is by me. Unless I tell him to go get in his bed..

Update 10/22/2013 After having the Boys for more than 2 weeks, I have decided they can be adopted to separate homes. Toby is an alpha dog. He is protective of his toys and bones. He would do best in a home with only himself. That being said, he is full of energy, and self confidence. He would require a backyard to play in. He loves to play ball, and play with toys. He is walking so much better on the leash, he is beginning to understand how pleasant walks are when he does not pull. He quickly learned the doggie door. He is very smart, but he needs an owner who is firm with him, and willing to spend the time playing with him. I could see this boy doing agility training, he has so much energy. And he is very smart. And he minds. He would make a wonderful companion for the right person or family. I was told he was good with kids, but I have not observed him with children. I would say kids over 8 at least.

Update 10/12/13: Toby went to the vet this week. He is a healthy boy at 10 lbs. We discovered a lump on his side, and the vet tested it, and it is believed to be a fatty tissue lump, not anything serious. Toby is what I would describe as an alpha dog. When he is playing, it is "out of my way everyone. This is all about me!" We are working on this dominance. But he is Mr. Personality plus, and full of confidence. He is walking nicely on a leash, but does tend to tug, we are also working on this. We have had a few accidents in the house, but when things calm down, and he learns the doggie door, I am sure this will not be a problem. He sleeps with his brother Casey, in a bed next to my bed. Casey and Toby have been together most of their lives, and need to stay together.

Initial Bio 10/09/13: Toby is a 4 year old Yorkie Terrier. He was surrendered to UYR due to the passing of his owner. Toby would like to stay with his buddy Casey, they have been together since 8 weeks of age. Toby is very outgoing and playful. He loves toys, but his favorite activity is playing ball. If you throw the ball, he will get it and bring it back and wait for you to throw it again. This guy has lots of energy. But he will kick back, also. He appears to be a healthy boy. I will post further information after their vet appointment.


To date we've spent $304.35 on Toby's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $50.00 in donations.

Brownie

Brownie

THANK YOU TO BROWNIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Jo-Ellen Gasior, Lorna Marrero, Carol von Cannon, Tracy Longo, Marion Gramcko, Sandra Johnson, Dana Marx, Sarah Davies, Connie Pfeiffer, Kathie Stander, Jane St. John, Dorothy Underwood, Mary Cronin, Sileste Roy

Update 03/18/14: Poor Brownie. Had to have a cystotomy and two of the stones were in his urethra - ouchie! He had 10 total stones in his bladder. And he had a dental. And a neuter. And he is 13 years old. Hope his recovery is uneventful. Bless his heart..

INITIAL BIO 03-13-2014 MEET BROWNIE! Brownie is an adorable 13 year old Silky Terrier who weighs 12-1/2 lbs; he is being fostered in The Villages, FL.

Brownie was reluctantly surrendered by his owners because a member of the household was allergic to him. He was very well cared-for and loved in the only home he has ever known. His best friend was the kitty cat, who also had to be re-homed and he misses her very much. Brownie is a very active senior dog! He is house-trained and will also use pee-pee pads on rainy days. He is getting adjusted to his new foster home where there is a resident 14 year old male yorkie, so the two of them may become buddies, and then he won’t miss his kitty cat friend so much.

We have observed that Brownie is urinating blood and whines as if he is in pain. The whining may also indicate that he is very very sad and misses his family very much. He stays by the front door looking for him - this is so sad. He will see the vet immediately to determine why he is urinating blood. Pray for good news for this sweet boy.


To date we've spent $1093.31 on Brownie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $300.00 in donations.

Buttons
Florida
Buttons

THANK YOU TO BUTTONS' RESCUE ANGELS!

Irene and Peter Havas, Sarah Davies, Todd Loccisano, Sandy Pagnotta, Barbara Carvalho, John Sauser, Maria Carril

UPDATED BIO 03/06/2014: Buttons is a 15.5 year old 4.5 lb Yorkie that is being fostered in West Palm Beach Florida. Sadly, sweet Buttons lost the home she planned to live out the rest of her life in when her owner had to go into a nursing home. Buttons is very healthy considering her age, and her appetite remains good, although sometimes she does need to be persuaded to eat with a little chicken. Buttons is almost deaf, and blind, and gets daily eye drops to help keep her eyes moist. She does not bark, and is pretty easy, she basically sleeps most of the time. She might have been housetrained at one point, but now she gets up and walks around and does her business wherever she happens to be. She is no longer walking around the house aimlessly, so we know when she is up and about sometimes is going to happen - she is either hungry, thirsty or has to use the potty. Due to her senility, she really doesn't interact with people. Buttons is looking for that special home and owner that understands she just needs somewhere safe and warm to spend the days snoozing away. Could that be you?

UPDATED BIO 02/05/2014: Buttons had her dental on the 3rd of February and lost 12 teeth! She has sutures where two of her upper teeth used to be so she doesn't develop an oral nasal fistula. She now has 2 teeth left, but her tongue currently isn't sticking out like it does with other toothless dogs. Buttons was groggy for longer than normal after her dental, and developed a bad tummy, but now she seems to have recovered.

One of the first days we had Buttons, she surprised us by chewing on a bone. She hasn't done that since, but it was very cute and we were able to get a little video of it. Please click this video link to see her and her bone.

Initial BIO 02/01/2014: MEET BUTTONS! Buttons is a tiny, 4 lb. 15 1/2 year old (yes you read that right!, born August 13, 1998) senior Yorkie. Her owner was moved to a nursing home and no longer able to properly care for her little dog, and when UYR found out about Buttons plight, we knew we were her only hope.

Buttons is an old dog, there is no sugar coating it. She is blind, and she is hearing impaired, and she is also senile. The good news is, that she is healthy! She had a senior blood panel done, and it came back normal. Her teeth are not in good shape, however, and on February 3rd, she is going to have a dental and probably lose a lot of her teeth. Her eyes do appear to not have optimal tear production, but we are giving her inexpensive over the counter eye drops to help keep them lubricated.

Buttons is a quiet dog, and doesn't bark. For the most part, she sleeps a lot. She does get up to potty, drink water and eat, and do her "rounds", walk aimlessly, or in a circle for a little exercise. If she is not taken out, she will potty on the floor.

Buttons is not a dog for everyone. She is in her own world, and not a typical cuddly dog. We are looking for a home that has prior experience with senile dogs, as well as someone that is home part of the day. Other small dogs are fine, but because of her tiny size, we are looking for household with children over 16. She just needs an understanding, experienced home where she can spend the remainder of her days.

Even if Buttons is not for you, please consider contributing to her care. Her initial blood test, heart worm test, vet visit and dental are expected to run well over $400 and her adoption fee won't come close to covering it. We can not continue to do what we do without the generous support of our supporters!


To date we've spent $556.08 on Buttons's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $185.00 in donations.

Cappy

THANK YOU TO CAPPY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sylvia Stapleton, Maryanne Ware, Rita Solomon, Matthew Scott Gann

Here's a video of Cappy.

UPDATED BIO 01/01/2014: Cappy is a 10 year old, 6.5 lb cutie who is being fostered in Boynton Beach. Cappy has been in foster care for a year now – please consider adopting this sweet little boy.

Cappy appeared to have allergies to food, and is now on a Vitality brand food, which is a refrigerated food, and this appears to be much better for him. Foster Mom will be searching for another food that is not so pricey and will be easier for the new family to obtain and give to him.

Cappy continues to be very, very affectionate and needy for attention, so a home with at least one stay-at-home parent would be perfect for him. He loves his toys, but needs sturdy toys since he has figured out how to “kill” all his fluffy and latex toys. FM and FD said that Cappy still loves to play fetch, loves tummy rubs and kissing games. He is a very happy little boy who is a super social and active little guy. He wanted a home for the holidays, but that didn’t happen. :( Please consider adopting this little fella – you will be rewarded with lots of love and kisses.

UPDATED BIO 11/01/2013: Cappy is a 9 year old, 6.5 lb cutie who is being fostered in Boynton Beach.

Cappy continues to be very affectionate and is now learning to share lap time. He has learned to keep his nose in his own bowl at meal time. He has come a long way in learning that when he lives with other doggies, he has to use doggie manners. He loves to play fetch using a rubber ball with Foster Mom, car rides, doggie park visits, and visitors make him super happy. Cappy thinks that anyone who comes to his foster home is there just to visit with him. He is a stay-up-late and sleep-in-late little guy. Cappy is a super social. active little guy. All Cappy wants for Christmas is a forever home. Can you grant his wish?

UPDATED BIO 08/22/2013: Cappy is an 8 1/2 year old, 6.5 lb cutie who is being fostered in Boynton Beach.

Cappy continues to be very affectionate and is now learning to share lap time. He has learned to keep his nose in his own bowl at meal time. Cappy has also come a long way learning that when he lives with other doggies, he has to use doggie manners. He loves to play fetch with Foster Mom, chasing a rubber ball. Car rides, doggie park, and visitors make him super happy. Cappy continues to think that anyone who comes to his foster home is there just to visit with him. He is a stay-up-late and sleep-in-late little guy.

Cappy does have some food allergies, so he should go into a home where he only receives a certain food; FM also uses a special shampoo called Relief (can get from the vet) for any outbreaks if he gets into something he shouldn’t. Cappy would do great being an only dog, or if there is another passive dog in the home, he would be okay with that as well. PLEASE NOTE: Cappy cannot be placed in a home with small children since he might ingest stuff that would harm him.

Cappy is a super social and active little guy ~ still Looking for Love. Please consider adopting Cappy and give him a chance to bring supreme happiness to your home.


To date we've spent $352.00 on Cappy's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $170.00 in donations.

Cashew

Cashew

THANK YOU TO CASHEW'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Patricia Bain

Initial Bio 04/05/2014: MEET CASHEW! Cashew is 9 years young and weighs only 5.8 lbs; he is being fostered in Homestead, FL.

Lucky me! I was rescued from a high-kill shelter by United Yorkie Rescue. I don't remember how I ended up in there, but I'm so happy to be out! I'm loving life now. My FM took me to the dogtor for a check-up and to fix the little hole I had in my gums inside my mouth (oral nasal fistula) and then the dogtor took out the last couple of toofers I had because they were in really bad shape and they hurt me a lot. I also had a neuter and all of my vaccines. Dogtor says I'm completely healthy! Yay for me!

FM says I'm smart because I'm house-trained and I'm always on my best behavior. I also love to cuddle, give kisses and play. I like other doggies and I don't mind cats. I really love going out for walks and enjoying the breeze on my face. I also like to run and play in the back yard, too. You can say I love to be out and about & meeting new people; but most of all I love to be cuddled up on a lap or in my bed. FM says I give the best kisses! I'm ready to share my yummy kisses with my new family.

NOTE: FM said that since I'm a little guy, I need to go to an adult only home. No children! So if you think you would love to have me for your own, please contact my FM for more information.

Love, Cashew xoxo

UPDATED BIO 03/20/2014: Hi everypuppy! My name is Cinda! I am between 8-10 years young, and I am being fostered in Miami, FL. I weigh a mere 6.5 lbs. Now, you might remember a pretty sad looking picture of me from when I was first rescued. Well, let me tell you, that's not me anymore! Just check out my beautiful coat! It's coming in so nicely. I had sooooo many fleas when foster momma rescued me that my body had an allergy to them. No more fleas = no more allergies! Don't I look purty? Like Cinda-rella!

In any case, here's what you need to know about me. First of all, I am a spunky little chick. I LOVE walks and can walk faster than my foster momma! She says that's pretty fast because she needs sneakers to keep up with me! I love fetch! I love snuggling and belly rubs. I really don't love other dogs. Foster mom isn't sure if it's me or if it's the fact that I don't see so well that scares me. So please, if you adopt me, can I be your one and only??

I have an appointment with an eye specialist on Saturday because I have what's called a luxated lens. My lens (the thingy people and dogs get cataracts in) is not in the right place. The issue is it could lead to other problems if not taken care of.... so we are gonna check it out :)

We will keep you posted! lots of puppy kisses! xo - Cinda

Daisy

THANK YOU TO DAISY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Cynthia Duranti, Nestor Sanchez

UPDATED BIO 03/15/2014: Daisy here! In case you forgot, I am a purebred Silky Terrier girl that is 10 yrs old, 6 lbs and being fostered in Ft. Myers, FL.

Just checking in with my fans.....I have been around a while now and foster mom says there are lots of people who like us older girls like me....I just haven't found my match yet, or they haven't found me. I love to cuddle with my people, go on walks and play in our dog park. I did have a boyfriend but his people moved, so I do like other dogs and even kitties, too. I do have a kittie sister here who likes to play taps on my head. Yep, I am pretty easy- going and am house-trained and very well-behaved. I do have a partially collapsed trachea and can sound like a horn when I get excited, but that is my only bad thing......

Could I be your Daisers girl?

Love,

Daisy

Updated Bio 01/30/14: Hi everyone it is me Daisy. I am 11 and even though I am a senior, foster mom says I have energy like a kid. Life in the new place is awesome. I have a new boyfriend I met here named Nitro....so I do get along with other dogs and kitties. I am the only dog now so I like having someone home to keep me company. Foster dad and I snuggle all day. I do have some trachea issues and I make funny noises when I get excited. Taking naps is my favorite thing to do next to my walks where I go to a dog park and play with other doggies. Could I be part of your family?

Love,

Daisy

UPDATED BIO 08/08/2013: DAISY is an adorable purebred Silky Terrier that is 10 years young (going on 6 years young) and weighs 7 lbs; Daisy is being fostered in Punta Gorda, FL.

Daisy says: Hi everybody! I have lost some weight from my daily walks, and chasing {or should I say being chased by} my foster sister Faith. I am a very happy girl! For being an older girl, my only issues are 1) a weak bladder ~ I am taking an RX medication Proin for this and it really helps; and 2) a trachea that will make funny sounds if I get really excited and bark.

I really love Foster Mom and Dad, but I really want a forever home. An older couple who are home most of the time would be ideal for me since I need to go potty every couple hours. I am totally a couch potato who just wants to be loved and adored. I am very silly, love to flirt and love fresh apples and carrots for treats. Do I sound like a girl you could love? Xoxoxo

UPDATED BIO 06/27/2013: Hello everyone. My name is Daisy. Foster mom calls me Daiser? Such a silly foster mom. I am still waiting for my family who wants to give me a forever home, but while I was waiting I had a very important job and that was taking care of my little foster sister Faith. She was hit by a car and had many ouchies. I helped foster mom keep Faith safe. I am very protective, and I know when someone needs me. I love to lay next to you, and will sit with you all day. I will help you cook and do laundry. See how talented I am?? I am potty trained and I tell foster mom when I have to go by barking. I would prefer someone who is home all day so I don’t panic and have my separation anxiety. I am on a medication for bladder control, but I only have accidents if I am home a long time by myself. Foster Mom says I am a good girl, very patient and I like other dogs and cats. I am a little older 10, but I go for long walks, and am staying in tip top shape waiting for you.

Call soon!

Love Daisy

UPDATED BIO 04/25/2013: Daisy is a 10.5 year old 11.5 lb girl who is being fostered in Punta Gorda, FL.

Hi everyone it is me Daisy - My owner left me to go to heaven, so I am in a foster home waiting for my new family. I am a very laid back happy girl. I would love someone who is home a lot who is willing to cuddle. I love to sit next to my person all day watching TV, working on the computer, and just helping you with everything. I even teach foster mom how to fold the laundry, and exercise. I am potty trained, and I am on a medication called Proin for bladder control. I have a small bladder so I need to go out and potty very often, barking is how I tell you I need to go out. I get along with other animals, but would be happiest being the queen of the house, as long as someone is home with me. I will love you with my whole heart, so I am waiting patiently for you to find me. could it be you?

Love,

Daisy

UPDATED BIO 03/06/2013: Daisy Dukes is 10 1/2 years old girl who weighs 11.5 lbs and is being fostered in Punta Gorda. Daisy had this to say:

Hi ya’all- I am Daisy, and this is the first bio I have had to write. Let me see, where do I start? I have had 3 owners, and my last one, she got really sick and no one could take care of me. I think she went to the people’s rainbow bridge, so I ended up with my new foster parents. I am on inexpensive pills for a weak bladder, just like my foster sister Kelly. I am potty trained, and I love to snuggle, I am the biggest baby in the whole wide world. I get along with other dogs, and kitties too, but I think I would prefer to be the only queen in the house with someone who is home all the time. I would not be happy if I had to be in a house all day by myself. I like to follow FM all around, and help her with things, like cleaning, and vacuuming, putting away the groceries is my favorite, there are all these bags that come in, and the brown paper ones?????? Wow are they fun to push around the room. I am a very exceptional little girl( not sure what that means, but that is what FD says to me.) Ad-ur-able is another one he uses, what does that mean? I have had all my shots, and my toofers just got cleaned, and the vet says I am in great shape. I am a silly girl, who loves walks, and just being loved. I also have my own little designer wardrobe, so there........ hee hee. Could I be your new punkin?

xoxox

INITIAL BIO 01/28/2013: MEET DAISY! She is 10 1/2 years old and weighs 11.5 lbs. Daisy has had a sad life so far; she was rescued from a puppymill where she gave birth to beautiful babies that were taken away from her much too early. She has had 3 prior owners, but her last owner recently passed away and there were no family members that could take Daisy. Daisy has a small bladder and is currently taking a medication for bladder control. She also has a partially collapsed trachea, but is not on medication for it and only has occasional coughing. In spite of this, Daisy has a very sweet temperament and is used to being the Princess in her home; she loves attention. She gets along with other dogs and can be placed in a home with older children. Could your home provide Daisy with the security and love in a forever home ~ one that she would never ever have to leave again.


To date we've spent $843.67 on Daisy's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $110.00 in donations.

Frankie Lane

INITIAL INQUIRY 03/22/2014: MEET FRANKIE LANE! He is an adorable 10 year old 10 lb male yorkie; he is being fostered in Orlando, FL.

Frankie Lane was surrendered by his owners who had him since he was a puppy - they were no longer able to care for him. He is a very lively and active little yorkie boy ~ his Foster Mom can hardly believe he is 10 years old as he acts like a puppy! One thing is for sure - Frankie Lane loves being with his person and seeks attention all the time - he craves human affection. He will see the vet next week for updated vaccinations, but he looks and acts healthy, has great teeth and shiny hair. He is very alert and overall a real sweetheart. So far, he hasn't exactly gotten along with FM's own little dog, but that may take some time. Stay tuned for more info as FM gets to know him a little better.

Gracie

Gracie

THANK YOU TO GRACIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Holly Stavis, Irene and Peter Havas, Holly Stavis, Holly Stavis, Nestor Sanchez, Holly Stavis, Holly Stavis

Updated Bio 4/3/14: Gracie is a sweet, adorable 9 year old malti-poo, weighing 13 pounds. Gracie is being fostered in Leesburg, FL.

Gracie has been in her new foster home about 2 weeks and her new foster parents think she's about the sweetest little girl ever. She is so quiet, she never barks, she gets along with the dogs, the cats, and everyone who comes into the house. She is a great eater, and sleeps all night in her doggy bed next to her foster mom and dad's bed. Gracie is also house-trained and does all her business outside.

Gracie had eye surgery and had to have her right eye removed; however, she is doing super with her remaining eye. Because of having untreated dry eye for so long, Gracie needs to have a few different kinds of drops in her eye, but they are not too expensive. She knows after each drop, she gets a little treat so she doesn't mind having the drops put in her eye. Gracie just visited the vet for a follow up and got a great report. Her remaining eye is stable and there has been no vision loss.

Gracie is on a limited ingredient food diet. She appeared to have some food allergies, and with her new food is doing better. This food costs no more than any good quality, no grain food, and can be purchased at any store that carries high quality dog food.

If you are looking for the nicest, gentlest dog who would be your best companion and friend for the rest of her life, look no further. Gracie is a very healthy, very well-behaved, perfect little angel. She loves to be walked and walks great on a leash, she travels nicely in the car, and just wants to be loved. Maybe you would be the perfect person or family to bring Gracie into your life and give her the love and the forever home she wants so much.


To date we've spent $541.21 on Gracie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $135.50 in donations.

Linda

THANK YOU TO LINDA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Renae and Jerry Sutley, Jennifer Tobiansky, Janis Kuykendall, Shirley Rayer, Michelle Lingle, Crystal Shores, LeNora Armbruster, Sandra Gaweda, Connie Pfeiffer, Jennifer Tobiansky, Carol Gostomski

UPDATED BIO 03/17/2014: Linda is a sweet 8 year old 3.5 lb girl who has mega esophagus. She is being fostered in Pembroke Pines, FL. Her foster mom has found a routine for her, and this seems to be working well. It includes feeding Linda in her bailey chair and letting her hang there for 20 min post feeding.

Linda has an amazing personality. Though she's a little more work than the average dog, she is so loving and sweet and is worth all the time and energy in the world!

UPDATED BIO 12/21/2013: Linda is an A-DOR-A-BLE 8 year old little 3.5 lb munchkin who is being fostered in Miami, FL. She is housetrained and friendly and loves to go on walks. See, Linda is almost perfect. We say almost because..... well...... Linda has Mega-E. She would like to let you know, however, that she is still perfect. She has this to say:

Hi everypuppy! My name is Linda. Did you know Linda means Beautiful in Spanish? Well, it does..... OK, so before you get all freaked out about my issue, let me explain it to you. See, my esophagus carries food from my mouth to my stomach. You have one too! OK, well mine really doesn't work the way it is supposed to, and I have to rely on gravity to help food move down to where it is supposed to go. The nice nice nice people at Bailey Chairs 4 Dogs (www.BaileyChairs4Dogs.com) made me my own super duper chair. I eat my food in the chair and hang out there for 20-30 minutes after I eat so the food goes down. Oh, I'm not going to say that I don't require any more work than an average dog. Yes, my food must be mushy. I occasionally regurgitate, but I am on a medication called propulsid which helps my esophagus push the food down. I WILL say, though, that I'm worth the extra work..... and honestly, since I am so darned cute, it doesn't even FEEL like work! hahahaha. Anyway, I am still looking for my FURever home, and asked Santa if he could please bring me one. He said I have been a good girl; so, I am hopeful one is coming soon. :) xoxo - Beautiful Linda

UPDATED BIO 11/4/2013: Linda is an ADORABLE little (and we mean little) 3.5 lb 8 year old Yorkie girlie who is being fostered in Miami, FL. Linda is super sweet and loving and is "looking for love".

Linda has a condition called mega-esophagus or Mega-E. Mega-E is when there's not enough tone to her esophagus (the connection between her mouth and stomach) to adequately move food along. We have run all kinds of expensive testing and have found that her case is idiopathic (just occurs for no known reason). She is an otherwise healthy pup. A diet gentle to her stomach, feeding her in the upright position, and keeping her upright after feeding will allow gravity to help her move the food down to the stomach. The WONDERFUL people at www.BaileyChairs4Dogs.com donated the most adorable chair for Linda to use while feeding and where she can rest after feeding to keep her upright and promote digestion. We are so grateful for their help!!

Linda should live a very long and happy life. She keeps most of her food down and only regurgitates a little - mostly when she gets excited and runs around too much around mealtimes. Linda is hoping there is someone special out there who doesn't mind a special needs dog like her. She promises to reward you with tons and tons of puppy kisses and snuggles!!

Update 10/17/13: UPDATED BIO 10/17/2013: Linda is an adorable 8 year old 4 lb little girl who is being fostered in Miami, FL. She had an endoscopy last week to look at her esophagus (throat) to see why she was having so much trouble eating. Unfortunately, Linda has a condition called mega-esophagus. Basically, her esophagus is like a deflated balloon. She has very little tone or motility in her esophagus which causes food to sit stagnant in her throat and not make it all the way into her stomach.

Now that we know why she was having regurgitation episodes, we are treating her. Linda receives only watered down wet food. She is fed upright (usually in your arms while tipping the food bowl to face her). After eating, we hold her upright for 15-20 minutes. We also are introducing a medication called propulsid to increase motility in her esophagus. Linda will need time before she is ready for adoption. Mega-E pups need time to figure out what feeding regimen works best for them - food consistency, how much time spent upright, etc. thankfully she is only 4 lbs and doesn't weigh much. She requires a patient, loving home. Linda may always spit up a tiny bit when she gets excited. Otherwise, she is the most affectionate loving girl. She uses wee pads (and occasional bath mats lol) and is just a beautiful special girl.

UYR has spent almost $1000 paying for her diagnosis. We really need your help paying these bills. Thank you!!

UPDATED BIO 10/11/2013: Linda is an 8 year old now 3.5 lb (yay!) little girl who is being fostered in Miami, FL.

Linda has gained 0.5 lb since she has been hospitalized for her inability to tolerate foods. She is, however, tolerating a puréed or semi liquid diet. She eats out of her bowl like a champ and hasn't had any vomiting since. Today she has a procedure called an endoscopy (think colonoscopy but through her mouth!). They are going to look and see what is the cause of her issues. She may have a narrowing of the esophagus or a foreign object. Either way, it seems her prognosis is very good as she can eat watered down wet food.

We will keep you posted. She is a tiny malnourished little girl and needs our positive thoughts for a successful procedure today so she can come home to her FM and find her FURever home!!

INITIAL BIO 10/09/2013: MEET LINDA! Linda is 8 years old and is very underweight @ 3 lbs; she is being fostered in Miami, FL.

Little Linda was surrendered by her owner because she quit eating and was losing weight. Linda should weigh at least 5 lbs. It is suspected that she has an obstruction in her esophagus which may require surgery. Linda will be undergoing tests to determine the exact cause of loss of appetite. Please help UYR help Linda by donating money for surgery, if needed. Thank you!

Luna

Luna

THANK YOU TO LUNA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Melinda and Ronald Tomas, Maryanne Ware, Nestor Sanchez, Debbie Pendleton, Nestor Sanchez, Patricia Bain

UPDATED BIO 3/14/14: Luna is a sweet little girl who is believed to be a Yorkshire Terrier, Poodle and Schnauzer mix. She is 5 years old, weighs 6.6lbs. and is being fostered in Miami, FL. Luna is doing an amazing job in FM's home. She loves to meet new people and new dogs. She can be shy sometimes but if you are gentle she will quickly want to be in your arms to cuddle. Her anti-seizure medication is working great as she hasn't had any seizures in several months. Luna loves to play & cuddle with her foster siblings. She's also learned how to play with soft toys. Luna has blossomed into the perfect little lady in FM's home. She's able to do her business on a pee pad and outside. Luna will do well in an Adult Only home with another fur sibling. She does well around older children but a calm & quiet home would be best for her. She's a cuddle bear so cuddles with her family & fur family are a must. Sharing the love is Luna's motto. Did you know that Luna is bilingual? Yup, Luna understands both Spanish & English commands. Isn't she smart? Luna is an amazing little cutie and deserves an amazing family. If that's you, please send her FM a message.

UPDATED BIO 12/9/2013: Luna is a Yorkshire Terrier, Poodle and Schnauzer mix. She is 5 years old, weighs 6.6lbs. and is being fostered in Miami, FL. Here's a message from Luna.

Hi every puppy! Luna here and I'd like to give you all an update on how I'm doing. I'm no longer as scared when we new people visit. I'm still a bit shy but I feel better after getting to know them a bit. I LOVE to run around in the back yard and I LOVE to sleep with my fur-brothers. So having another dog in the house is a must for me. I wake every morning so happy and so thankful for the second chance I was given. FM says I'm the happiest dog she's ever met! I'm very loyal to my person and all I want to do is cuddle. Who doesn't like to cuddle? ha ha

Any way, my seizure medication has been adjusted a little bit because blood work showed that my dose was too low. This medicine helps prevent me from having seizures. It's not fool proof but it sure does help a lot. I;m a good little girl. I'm trained to go potty outside and on a pee wee pad. I like to share the bed with another fur-baby or I can sleep in bed with you. I hope you don't mind me waking you up with yummy kisses! You can say I'm a perfect little lady. Well, that's all for now. I hope to have my furever family very soon. FM says I'm a very special little girl who has stolen the hearts of many people. I love my foster parents and foster sibling but I want to share the love I have with my furever home family. Perhaps its you? Love, Luna xoxo

UPDATED BIO 10/10/13: Hi everyone, it's me Luna! For those of you that don't already know, I'm a Yorkshire Terrier, Poodle and Schnauzer mix. I am 5 years old and weigh 6.6lbs. I'm being fostered in Miami, FL.

I've been in my FM's home for some time now and I am loving life!! I've been spayed and I am up to date on all my vaccines. I also tried to get my toofers cleaned but they were so bad that they all had to come out. I don't have any toofers left but that's OK. I love to eat and nothing but my FM can get in my way of eating. ha ha! FM softens my kibble with water so it's easier for me to eat. But I'll eat the hard ones too. I'm now at my ideal weight and I got a hair cut. FM says I look so beautiful!

I'm no longer as scared as I use to be and I don't mind other people holding me or playing with me as long as my FM is around. I love to cuddle on FM's lap or on the couch. FM says I'm the perfect lap dog. I'll fall asleep on her in any position she puts me in. I also love to cuddle up with my foster fur-brother. I prefer to sleep cuddled up next to him than in my own bed. I love to run around sometimes and show FM how happy I am with my tail held up high. I'm not much of a barker. I'll bark softly like a puppy when I want FM to hold me or I'll bark if someone is at the door. I'm also house trained. I potty outside and I use the pee wee pad inside. A pee wee pad is a must so I don't have any accidents. I love my FM a whole lot but I'm ready to love my new family. Would that be you? Well that's it for me. I'm going to pass this over to my FM. Love ya! xoxo

FM here: Luna has been an absolute joy in our home. She's an adorable little girl who is oh so sweet. Luna has had 2 seizures since we have known her and recently had one more in our home. Our vet recommended that she be placed on a daily medication to help prevent her seizures. The pill portion is tiny and I hide it in her soften kibble or in her Joint supplemental treat and she eats it right up. The medicine is about $30 a month. If you are considering adopting Luna, she will need the seizure medication and joint supplement for the rest of her life. Keep in mind that since she doesn't have any teeth so she will no longer need annual dental cleans so it's one less expense to worry about. Luna's daily routine is just like any other dog. She's an amazing little dog and such a happy soul. She deserves the best! If you believe that your family would be a great fit for Luna please email me. :)

UPDATED BIO 08/11/2013: Miss Luna here! I'm 5 years old, 6 pounds, and am being fostered in Miami where I am "looking for love!". I was rescued by a good Samaritan who found me lying in the middle of the street. From what my foster momma has learned about me, she says I was probably frozen out of fear in that street. She says I was lucky I wasn't run over by one of those car things!! The good Samaritan took me to the shelter & that's how I met my foster mom.

I am sweet but a little timid. I need to get to know you before I give up any kisses. I love going on walks (loud cars scare me a little) and like other dogs. Oh yeah, and I'm 100% housetrained. See, aren't I smart??

Foster momma posted some pics of me, but you can kinda tell I'm a little leery of cameras too. I'm coming along though. I'm a brave girl! I'm having my toofers cleaned and getting surgery Friday so I can't have puppies. Wish me luck!

INITIAL BIO 7/28/2013 Hi everyone, my name is Luna. I'm 5 yrs old, weight 6lbs and I'm being fostered in Miami, FL.

I ended up in a high kill shelter. I was really sad and scared. So scared that I had a seizure as soon as I had arrived there. UYR came to my rescue. When my foster mom saw me, she hugged me tight and told me everything would be OK. She fell in love with me right away. FM named me Luna which means Moon in Spanish because she says I light up the world with my sweetness.

I visited the dogtor and they said that I have luxating patella (a knee problem) that isn't an issue right now. I have to maintain a healthy weight and take a joint supplement. I like the joint supplement because it tastes like a yummy treat! I haven't had any signs of a seizure since that first day at the shelter. Dogtor says it may have happened because I was so scared. I will be spayed & get a dental very soon. Dogtor says that I'm a Yorkie mix. FM says I may loose a few teeth because they are in pretty bad shape. Other than that I'm doing pretty good.

FM says she's really proud of me because I'm completely house trained and do all of my business outside. I get a long with my other foster fur brothers & I don't mind cats. I like people in general but I will say that I do get really scared sometimes. I don't quite remember what happened to me in my past but sometimes I get so scared that I begin to shake and don't want to move. FM talks really sweet to me and sits down by me to let me know it's OK. I feel better when she is around.

I think the best forever home for me will be a calm and quiet home with someone that can spend time with me and love me forever! Well that's it for now. Stayed tuned for an update for me. Wish me luck as I settle into FM's house and get to know everyone a little better. xoxo Love, Luna. NOTE: Because of Luna's size and her very timid nature (which could change as she feels comfortable in her home), she can only be adopted into an adult home.

Missus

Missus and Mister
Florida
Missus (and Mister)

UPDATED BIO 04/01/2014

Missus is a 10 years old Yorkie and weighs 8.5 lbs; Mister is a 10 year old Silky Terrier boy who weights 9 lbs. This pair is being fostered in The Villages FL. They have always been together and must be adopted together. This bonded pair have been in foster care in United Yorkie Rescue since 02/23/2013 ~ please don't overlook them because of their age ~ they need a loving home just like the younger Yorkies do.........

Here's what they had to say recently..........

"Well….our Foster Mom sat us down and had the “talk” with us and here’s what she said. She told us how very good we were at making her and our Foster Dad happy. She said we were very lovable, loyal and well-behaved. She said they also loved watching us play with Charlie, the resident Yorkie. They also laugh a lot when Mister talks back to Bogie, the resident African Grey. She said they enjoy taking us for rides in the car and in the golf cart because we sit just like we’re supposed to. Well, we had no idea where this “talk” was going until…..

.........she said that because we were so good at all these things, it was time for us to make someone else happy and share our fun personalities. She said the day will be coming when we will be going to another home, but this one would be our forever home. She promised us that we would never be separated and that she would make sure it would be a home where people would make us happy too.

So now we’re anxious to find out where we will be going. Will you be our forever parent? We promise to make you happy…we know we’re really really good at that.

UPDATED BIO 08/21/2013: Missus is 9 years old and weighs 8.5 lbs; she is a Yorkshire Terrier. Missus & Mister have always been together in their former home and must be adopted together. They are being fostered in The Villages, FL, north of Orlando.

Missus is very much a little lady. Initially, she was very timid and reluctant to allow herself to be hugged and petted. However, now Missus is the Resident Princess and makes it known to all within sight. She wiggles when she walks and keeps looking over her shoulder to make sure FM is following her to give her whatever she wants (sorta...).

Missus had never slept in a human's bed before she came to her foster home. Now, she curls up in "her" spot at the head of the bed and often cries to go to bed, even if nobody else is in it. Mister and Missus at first didn't interact very much with each other. Now, she keeps her Foster Parents amused with her antics. She will grab a toy and walk very, very slowly up to Mister (who, by the way, sees her coming, but just stands still until she gets close enough). All of a sudden, Mister will quickly turn and Missus will go racing around the table and slowly come up behind him and the whole procedure starts all over again. They will do this continually until one or the other just tires out. Initially, Missus was on a vegetarian diet and had not received heartworm preventative and other immunizations because of alleged allergies; however, it was discovered that she does not have allergies, and now Missus is up to date on all her vaccinations, and as a result, is healthier and happier.

UPDATED BIO 07/31/2013: Missus is 9 years old and weighs 8.5 lbs; she is a Yorkshire Terrier. Missus & Mister have always been together in their former home and must be adopted together. They are being fostered in The Villages, FL, north of Orlando.

Missus wanted to update everyone on how she & Mister are doing:

There’s some great news coming……………My Foster Mom & Dad have been trying me on different kinds of food, little by little, and they're finding out that I have outgrown my allergy to food. Whoopie, no more RX food for me!!! They still don't let me eat from the table...waaaahh! They say it can make me sick and I do not like to be sick! They never give me or Mister people food (just some chicken or a piece of cheese), but the food I'm eating now is way better than that fishy stuff I was eating - yuk. My Mister is happier too 'cause he had to eat what I could eat before, but now we eat what we like. Now I'm just a normal, beautiful young lady who knows how to be a princess and wiggle when I walk...tee hee!

More great news…………my former owner didn’t give me vaccinations because I had a reaction to them (or something else) one time, but those days are over, too! I have received all my vaccinations with no problem. They had to give me a shot before I had them so I wouldn’t react, and I didn’t – whoo hooo! Now I get to go to the dog park and on walks with Mister.

Foster Mom and Dad tell me all the time how gorgeous I am and how good I am and I love hearing it. Mister and I have lots of fun here and we love our walks since we always meet new people and see new exciting things. We would be good in your home, too, if you adopted us!

FM said that we live in The Villages where there are a lot of senior people and that one of them would be really really lucky if they adopted us cause we are such good dogs and good companions, too. We love lying in laps or beside you and are very interested in what you are doing during the day. Please give me and my Mister a furever home – we will love you a lot!

UPDATED BIO 08/21/2013: Mister is 9 years old and weighs about 9 lbs; he is a Silky Terrier. Mister & Missus have always been together in their former home and must be adopted together. They are being fostered in The Villages, FL, north of Orlando.

Mister has the eyes of a very wise soul and initially, was very cautious before allowing any kind of relationship to develop between his Foster Parents and himself. Both he and Missus appeared to depressed.  It took a while, but he has come a long, long way. Mister had never slept in a human's bed before he came to our home. Now, he curls up in "his" spot on our bed without any urging. We have been taking him for walks and to a local dog park where, at first, he tried to dominate the other dogs, especially those who looked at his Missus. With a little patience and lots of understanding on the part of dog owners at the park, Mister has mellowed when around other dogs and has joined in the fun.

He now plays with Missus, which he didn’t do in the first few months, and interacts with Bogie, the resident African Grey Parrot. It's like he and Bogie communicate back and forth (perhaps they do have their own language). When Foster Mom is at her desk on the computer, Mister curls up on the blanket next to her chair. When the nine-year-old granddaughter was with the foster parents for a month, Mister took it upon himself to be poolside whenever the granddaughter was in the water - letting her know if he didn't approve of some antics - and he was always at the foot of her bed whenever she was reading or sleeping. He became her protector. Mister is now a very loving and well-behaved little guy and he acts more care-free in his foster home environment.

UPDATED BIO 07/31/2013: Mister is 9 years old and weighs about 9 lbs; he is a Silky Terrier. Mister & Missus have always been together in their former home and must be adopted together. They are being fostered in The Villages, FL, north of Orlando.

Mister wanted to update everyone on how he & Missus are doing:

Mister here! My Foster Mom & Foster Dad have been bringing us to the dog park where there are all different kinds of dogs. Being the handsome boy, I am very protective of my Missus and I let the other dogs know it. After I show them who's who, I back down and I'm okay. FM & FD are trying to break me of that habit ~ they said that Missus can take care of herself and I don’t need to guard her and they are right. I'm working on that……….

Now, they've added a yorkie boy to my Foster Family ~ his name is Charlie. Having Charlie living with us is kinda helping me to control my protective and possessive instincts. But I always thought the boy was supposed to be the protector? Geesh, life is so confusing sometimes. Like the bird Bogie that lives here. What is wrong with me barking my head off at him? We were having a conversation, I thought, since he was squawking, too. Well, FM said that wasn’t a good thing, so if you have an annoying bird like Bogie, you may want to give him away before I come and live with you. Hmph!!

Foster Mom and Dad tell me all the time how handsome I am and how good I am and I love hearing it. Missus and I have lots of fun here and we love our walks since we always meet new people and see new exciting things. We would be good in your home, too, if you adopted us!

Nora

Nora

THANK YOU TO NORA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Renae and Jerry Sutley, Casey Savelli, Maria Christopher, Donna Dozois, Irene and Peter Havas

UPDATED BIO 03/16/2014: NORA is 10 years old (but doesn’t act her age, acts much younger!) and weighs only 4 lbs; she is being fostered in Bunnell, FL.

Hi my name is Nora and I am as sweet as can be. I love to sit on my FM's lap. I have 2 doggie sisters that I love, but I would prefer just to sit on FM's lap all day. I also love to sleep with her under the covers and as close as I can be.

I use pee-pads as well as going outside. I love to eat, even though I am on prescription dog food for my kidney disease. I was pretty sick when I got here, but as long as I stay on the prescription food, along with 2 medications which FM hides in my food, I feel really good. Oh, one more thing, there is an IV I get every couple of days to keep my fluid levels up, it's not so bad ~ only takes a few minutes but I feel so much better. I am a happy girl looking for a loving home who will keep me healthy by giving me lots of love and continue my medications so I will stay healthy and live a long time. Could your home be perfect for me? I will love you forever and ever! Xoxo Nora

UPDATE! 01/16/2014: Nora is back! She is a 10 year old, 4 lb beautiful girlie; she is being fostered in Bunnell, FL. Nora was surrendered by her adopters due to a medical issue. Please watch for updates on Nora soon!

UPDATED BIO 12/21/2013: Nora is a sweetheart of a 10 year old 4 lb girl who somehow found herself in a high kill shelter right before the holidays. She is being fsotered in Miami, FL. Nora was rescued with a large mass on her vulva. The pathology came back today AND IT IS BENIGN!!! Now, that said, the margins were not completely free of the benign tumor. The vet said we should watch it to see if it starts to come back in the future. At this point, it is not worth putting her under anesthesia again as the growth may be too slow to make a difference to sweet Nora. She is ready for adoption!

OK, a little about Nora....... Nora is housetrained to wee wee pads and goes outside to do her business. She has what the vet calls pre-kidney disease. Her BUN and creatinine are elevated, but the vet says she has seen much worse. She is now on a prescription KD diet (which she loves) and eats dry AND wet food. The food is no more expensive than the premium Blue Buffalo food she was eating before :). She can still concentrate her urine just fine. We will be rechecking her labs soon to see if the numbers have improved with proper diet.

Nora has one other issue..... She sometimes lifts her front leg (and rarely her back) when she is walking at a fast speed. The vet did an Xray and found it is simply arthritis. Nora must be on glucosamine for the rest of her life. She takes Dasuquin 1/2 pill per day and eats it mashed in her food. The vet says to expect it to take 2 months or so before we see any noticeable improvement.

Despite her "issues", Nora is just an easy to care for, loving little Princess who would love to shower her new owner with kisses all day and night. She sleeps in bed with her FM and FD and uses doggy stairs to go up and down in the middle of the night if she needs to potty. She is a beautiful little girl who did not deserve to be in a shelter. She's asked Santa for a FURever family for Christmas. Could it be you?


To date we've spent $2258.22 on Nora's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $550.58 in donations.

THANK YOU TO OWEN'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Updated Bio 04/16/14: Owen is a 1 year old, male Yorkie-Maltese mix, weighing 14.5 pounds.

Owen just moved! He is now being fostered in Clearwater, FL. His new foster mom thinks he is a mix between a dog (maybe Maltese and Yorkie) and a MUPPET! His floppy ears bounce like a cartoon when he trots around. It took a couple of hours to be sure about his new fur brothers, but then the play time began. A typical puppy, Owen has a lot of energy to run, tackle, chase and play. It is a very rare moment to catch Owen without a toy in his mouth. Toys are the BEST! If he can't find one of his own toys, a shoe, slipper, stick, leaf, marker, really anything on (or near) the ground, will work.

We are still getting to know more about Owen in his new home and will keep you updated as we learn all of his silly quirks. So far, we are definitely working on house training, but he has been watching his new foster fur brother so we are hopeful this will progress well. Owen is very friendly and playful. He is truly the perfect picture of a "dopey puppy". We caught him getting distracted while chasing down a toy and accidentally run into a wall a couple of times. He is such a GOOF! He does bark at noises outside, so he may not be the best dog for an apartment. He has so much energy that he may also really like a fenced in backyard to enjoy running more often than the occasional walk. He would LOVE to have another dog to play with in his home. Owen also needs someone who will be very attentive to his grooming needs. Getting his hair brushed and cut is not one of his favorite things but he has the prettiest silky white/tan hair that gets very matted very easily and attracts any stickers in the grass like a magnet. We are slowly getting him used to the brush every day so his hair can stay soft and gorgeous.

Along with having a yard to run around, Owen would like an energetic family who could play fetch and remain patient with his house training. Beware if you have and enjoy your carpeted floors. If you have another dog that needs some puppy company, Owen is your guy! At the end of his long days full of playing, he snuggles right next to your lap on the couch to wind down, then sleeps through the night at your feet in the bed. When morning comes, he is ready to be the first one finding all of yesterdays scattered toys. Are you ready for a sweet, loving, playful and CRAZY puppy to make you laugh everyday?

Updated BIO 02/11/2014:

Hi everyone! Meet Owen. Owen is a darling 11 month old pup who is 16 pounds and is being fostered in Clearwater, FL. Owen is living the good life at his foster home. Owen was surrendered to UYR as a Morkie (Maltese-Yorkie mix). This may not be quite accurate, as he is already MUCH larger than either breed, but he is a delightful bundle of pure white energy! From what we can tell, Owen spent the first eight months of his life in a crate with no human contact. When he first came here, he was startled by his own shadow, scared of the grass, and almost impossible to touch. He was so matted that the knots were tearing at his skin, and he had to be shaved completely down.

Fast forward to today... and Owen has blossomed into true puppy! He knows now that people are for loving, and he will run up to be picked up, cuddled, belly rubbed, and then he's on his way again. He has learned to play with toys- you will usually find him carrying SOMETHING- a toy, a stick, the occasional shoe- with him wherever he goes. And boy, does Owen go! He loves to run in the yard. He enjoys playing with his foster Yorkie brothers and sisters, and even the golden retriever that came to stay over the holidays. He is very dog social, and he seems to get along well with every puppy. Owen mostly ignores the cats, but once in a while he does bark at them.

Owen's house training is a work in progress. Because he was not properly cared for as a young puppy, he did not learn the very important early toileting skills from his mother. He is doing very well not soiling his crate so often, but he is still working on the concept of knowing to go outside, not in the kitchen. And to Owen, there is no difference between the pool deck, the living room tile, and the grass... He IS starting to bark to ask to go out, but he DOES mark his territory in the house if he is not watched at all times.

Owen is a very smart boy. His ideal home is with somebody who has enough time and patience to devote to him. He needs a consistent schedule of feeding, exercise, house training, and puppy obedience. Owen has boundless energy, and he needs an active family who can give him the proper exercise. Because he is just a puppy, he needs a lot of supervision to keep him safe. He's still in the chewing phase, so puppy proofing is a must. Owen would do well with older children, and he'd love a playful fur brother or sister to keep him company when his people are aren't available. A fenced yard is ideal, but Owen would love daily walks as well.

Owen is a special little guy who has come a log way in a short time. He's looking for his forever family to teach him how wonderful his life can be!

INITIAL BIO 11/12/2013: Meet Owen. Owen is a darling 8 month old Morkie who is 12.2 pounds and is being fostered in Davie, FL. He was one of 10 dogs surrendered by a backyard mill breeder. Kept in deplorable conditions, forced to eat food tainted with fecal matter, it's amazing Owen is as sweet (though understandably timid) as he is.

Owen is not housetrained, but FM is working on it. He is healthy and will be neutered within the week. Please stay tuned as we get to know him better.

THANK YOU TO SAILOR'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Jerry and Renae Sutley, Michael Davis, Catherine Hurlbut, Maryanne Ware, Nestor Sanchez

UPDATED BIO 03/24/2014

Sailor is a 6 year old Yorkshire Terrier being fostered in Palm Coast, FL

Sailor continues to be a work in progress as far as housebreaking. He may have to wear a bellyband for the rest of his life when indoors. He is a very picky and very slow eater so his Foster Mom feeds him away from his fur brother and sisters so they can't take his food from him.

Sailor has suffered at least three seizures since being in foster care. There is no apparent "trigger" for these seizures and the vet feels no medication is needed unless they begin to get closer together so he is being closely monitored at present.

Sailor must have a full-time stay at home mommy because he seems to prefer females over males. (Smart guy!)

UPDATED BIO 02/02/2014

Sailor is approximately 6 years old an is an adorable but very timid little Yorkshire Terrier being fostered in Palm Coast, FL. When he first came into foster care he was very underweight at 5.8lbs. He has gained weight and now weighs 7lbs. Foster mom and dad have given him the nick-name of Mr. Big as he has certainly filled out. He does have a very sensitive stomach and foster mom has finally found a food that he is able to eat that does not upset his tummy. Due to his obvious lack of care in the past he has had to have most of his teeth pulled and now his little tongue hangs out one side of his mouth which just makes him even cuter.

Sailor has adjusted well to his foster home and loves his Foster Mom. He does not seem to like men as well as women. He tolerates men, but prefers a woman as his primary caregiver. He does not like to be held by a man and gets kind of upset. His forever home would absolutely require a female in the home, preferably between 40-60 years old so that they can chase after him if he escapes! If he has a chance to run out the door, he will, and he’s very fast with those long legs. Boy can he run ~ he may have been a Greyhound in his previous life!

Sailor’s foster parents are still working on housetraining since he marks in the house. Here are some details about what kind of home would be perfect for Sailor:

- A home with either a single woman or a couple – Sailor definitely loves women more than men.

- A home that understands that Sailor is a very, very sweet little boy, but also very timid, so a calm quiet home would be perfect. . He is fearful of loud noises, thunder and lightning and is very fearful of fireworks. NO CHILDREN PLEASE!

- A home where Sailor could just cuddle up next to you all day long; he also likes to sleep right next to his human at night, so move over and make room in your bed for Sailor.

- A home where there is stay at home mommy that can stay at home with him all day long and just give him belly rubs and snuggles.

- A home where Sailor could have a playmate around his age and size. Sailor just loves other little doggies like him. Especially girlie doggies!

- A home with a big fenced-in yard would be a big bonus since he loves, loves, loves to run and has discovered his love of chasing after squirrels and birds!


To date we've spent $841.98 on Sailor's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $185.00 in donations.

Snickers

Snickers

THANK YOU TO SNICKERS' RESCUE ANGELS!

Todd Loccisano

Updated Bio-3/26/14 Snickers is 8 years old and weighs 8.5 pounds, He is being fostered in West Palm Beach, FL.

Snickers was rescued from a high kill shelter where he had been turned in by his owner. Lucky for him, UYR responded to the call for rescue him from the shelter. When he was surrendered he had severe fleabite dermatitis.

Snickers is a very mellow sweet dog. He has only been in his foster home a short time, but has adjusted very quickly. He gets along fine with his foster brothers and sisters, however he does like to harass the cats, so a cat free home, or a home where the cat is the boss, would be best. He is not totally house trained yet, and if not taken out in time, will potty in the house. But he is learning and has had less accidents in the house.

Snickers saw the vet this week for a dental and an exam. He lost a couple of teeth, but still has many left, and his appetite is just fine. He had open sores and missing fur from his flea infestation. Now with proper treatment, all the sores have healed up and his fur should grow back in no time at all. He gets medicated baths once or twice a week, and is on oral flea control. He has already almost completely stopped chewing on himself and scratching. He is such a sweet little fellow and has taken to following his foster mother around.

Snickers is going to be just beautiful when his fur grows in. Maybe yours would be the perfect home for this very deserving little guy.

UPDATED BIO 3/06/14: Snickers is an 8 year old, 8.4 lb Yorkie being fostered in West Palm Beach FL. Snickers was was surrendered to a local shelter. He came in infested with fleas and missing much of his fur due to flea allergies. He is now on oral flea medication, anti - itch medication and getting medicated baths to help clear up a secondary skin infection. He might look a little funny now, but we can see he is a diamond in the rough - he is going to be adorable when his fur comes in. He should look like a completely different dog in a couple of months.

He went to the vet this week, and his blood work showed he was anemic from all the fleas he had on him. He had a dental and lost a couple of teeth - and the vet said he had a lot of fur in between his teeth. He is getting high quality food and being kept parasite flea, so his anemia should subside soon.

Snickers is very easy going and mellow. He has tried to play with the cats a little as well as with the other dogs, but they were not impressed. He has pretty good manners as well, we are pretty impressed with him! He is however, not completely 100 % housetrained, so we are working on that. He likes to snooze on the couch and sleep on the bed, and say hello to new people he meets. He is a friendly little dog who would do well in a household with children over the age of 13.


To date we've spent $441.76 on Snickers's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $35.00 in donations.

Sunshine

UPDATED BIO 03/12/2014

Hello everyone! It's me, Sunshine here again with an update for you on how I'm doing. I am a happy, loving 8 year old Yorkie girlie who weighs 12 pounds, and have moved to my new foster home in Jacksonville, FL.

Because I'm a little larger than most Yorkies, I may be part Silky Terrier; but in either case I am told I am a very pretty girl!

I was with my former Foster Mom for almost three weeks and she loves me to pieces, but she is moving soon to a place where she can only have one dog, so that's why I moved to another foster home. FM says I am such a good girl. I am house-trained, but sometimes I "forget" to give Foster Mom my "signal" that I need to go outside. I am working on that but I LOVE LOVE LOVE to go outside in the SUNSHINE (Hey.....that's MY NAME!) and I will happily go out ANY time you will take me.

My Foster Mom also says I have BEAUTIFUL teeth which is unusual for small breed dogs, especially those who come into a rescue. One problem I do have is something called a luxating patella, but it doesn't bother me at all and I love going on my 1/2 mile walks every morning.

I am a very friendly girl! I love people and followed my former Foster Mom around all day. I am also curious and want to be friends with about every dog I meet. I am good with children and I loved my former Foster Mom's 10 year old granddaughter. When my day is done, I love to curl up in bed with Foster Mom and get snuggled in for the night. I am a good eater and I love to eat my kibble mixed with a little bit of wet food. Its hard for me to be patient while she mixes it up because it tastes so GOOD!

I like to think I was named Sunshine because I bring a ray of happiness and joy to everyone I meet. I'd love to be the "Sunshine" in your life.........could you be that special Forever Home I'm looking for? If so, please fill out an application for me......you won't be sorry!

UPDATED BIO 2/19/2014: Sunshine is an 8 year old, 11.5 lb (adjusted weight) Yorkie mix or Silky who is being fostered in Delray Beach. She had tumors on her that needed to be removed, and she had her surgery today. As was suspected, the tumors were common fatty tumors. They were completely removed, and she should have no additional issues! She also had a dental, and lucky her, she did not lose a single tooth.

Sunshine will have her sutures out in 14 days, and after that, she is ready to be adopted! Please check back for additional updates as we get to know this little lady.

INITIAL BIO:02/17/2014

MEET SUNSHINE! Sunshine is a pretty 8 year old Yorkie mix or Silky that found herself at a local shelter. She weighs about 13 lbs, but could gain at least 1 or 2 lbs. She gets along great with the other dogs and wants to play with them a bit, and seems okay with the cats.

Unfortunately, Sunshine has some tumors on her chest, putting pressure into her heart, which made her unadoptable to the general public. At this moment, we believe they are fatty tumors, but won't know until the biopsy is sent it. Dr. Michelle Durkee of West Palm Animal Clinic is going to do the surgery, so we know she is in great hands! She will be going in Wednesday for a full blood test and surgery. Please keep her in your thoughts.

Tater Tot

Tater Tot

THANK YOU TO TATER TOT'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Irene and Peter Havas

Updated BIO 04/01/2014: Tater Tot is an almost 4 year old, 11 lb Yorkie boy being fostered in Davie, FL.

Tater was surrendered to UYR by his loving family because he was having extreme difficulty with being left alone while they worked. He was drinking excessive amounts of water, and he was unable to control his excessive urination. He also kept finding ways to escape from their house and yard into the busy neighborhood streets. Their concern for his well-being led them to make this difficult decision, and we were glad to welcome him back to UYR.

Since he has been back in his foster home, Tater has undergone several medical tests to find the cause of his excessive thirst and urination. So far our veterinarians have not been able to find any physical reason for these issues. The doctor is currently trying to rule out diabetes insipidus, using eye drops to see if they control his symptoms. Tater does seem to have severe separation anxiety, and he cannot be left alone for long periods. As long as his foster parents are home, he relaxes and alerts when he needs to go out. He comes up to Foster Mom, gently puts his paws on her leg, and runs to the door. He KNOWS what he’s supposed to do, but she or Foster Dad have to be there so he can tell them! He sleeps in bed with them, and he makes it through the night with no problem. He follows Foster Mom around the house all day, and that seems to keep him pretty well accident-free.

Tater is a known escape artist. He has no fear of traffic or big dogs so he needs close supervision and no access to the world outside his home unless he is in his harness and on a leash.

Tater is a sweet, loving little boy who loves to be picked up and snuggled. He doesn’t show any interest in toys and is only slightly interested in his foster brothers and sisters. Once in a while he notices the cats and decides to chase them.

Tater Tot is looking for a very special home- one that will help him manage is urinary issues with nothing but love and patience- he can’t help it, so his parents will need to make sure his environment is able to withstand accidents. He needs a quiet adult home (older teens should be fine) with at least one parent home most of the time. He does not handle confinement well, but he will go in a crate if it is absolutely necessary. His foster parents are working on using potty pads for him as well. Carpet and rugs would NOT be a good mix with this little guy! Tater would like to be an only dog, but he would be okay with a calm, kind fur brother or sister- no rowdy youngsters, please!

Tater’s forever home must have a fully fenced yard. His family said he used to dig out of their yard. Foster Mom’s fence is buried, so it hasn’t been a problem there. The house must be secure so that he cannot bolt out the doors. Tater is not much of a barker, so he might do well in an apartment or condo environment as long as he can be taken out as needed. Again, tile floors are a must.

Tater is a gem. He’s quiet, a little shy, and he’s pretty scared. He has been bounced around too much in his short life for things he can’t control. He’s looking for just the right family to give him a warm, safe, secure environment so that he can give them all the love he has to give.

If you think this home could be yours, please contact Tater’s foster mom, and fill out an adoption application.

INITIAL BIO 02/23/2014: MEET TATER TOT! He is a sweet 3 1/2 year old, 11 lb Yorkie boy being fostered in Davie, FL. Tater just came into rescue, so please stay tuned for more info on him as his foster mom gets to know him better.

Updated Bio 3/31/14--Timmy is a 1 year 4 month young adorable Yorkshire terrier. He weights 8 pounds and is being fostered in Leesburg, FL

Timmy is recovering from his intensive surgery. He came through it like a trooper, but his recovery will be long and slow. In order to heal properly he has to be confined to a crate or a puppy pen all day except to be taken out on a leash to do his business. He desperately wants to be out to play with the other dogs and to be with his foster mom and dad. He will bark and whine to let us know that. So he is not a very happy little dog right now, but he will be when he finally heals.

Timmy's recovery will take 8 weeks and then a final month to slowly have him resume his normal activity level. His surgery repaired his right hind leg which was broken and fractured in 4 places. The pain was so bad that he could not put his leg down. Every time he put this foot down it caused pressure on his sciatic nerve and pain shot through him. On his left side his sacroiliac slipped 100% and had to be reattached with a big screw and washer. To add insult to all this, he has to wear a cone on his head to keep him from licking and scratching the surgery staples. Thankfully the stapes will be removed on April 7th and the cone can come off.

Timmy won't be able to go to his forever home until the end of June, but we are taking adoption applications for him. We don't yet know Timmy as well as we will, but we do know he's an energetic puppy. He loves to eat, he is potty trained to a potty pad and the outside, and he likes other dogs and people. It's hard to know the real Timmy while he is being contained, but as we learn more about him, and as he continues to heal we will update his bio and include new pictures.

Thank you so much to everyone who donated to his surgery. We could not have done it without your help. Timmy sends his thanks with all his heart.

INITIAL BIO 03/23/2014: MEET TIMMY! He is a 16 month old 9 lb male yorkie; he is being fostered in Leesburg, FL.

Timmy was hit by a moving vehicle on 03/14 and has a compound fracture of his pelvis which needs to be surgically corrected as soon as possible. Timmy was surrendered by his owner because she was unable to afford the orthopedic surgery he so desperately needs. Timmy will be seen by a surgeon immediately – please say some prayers for this little boy. We don’t know at this time what the surgery will cost, but it will be very expensive. Please consider donating to Timmy’s vetting so that he can go on to enjoy a pain-free life.


To date we've spent $2756.81 on Timmy's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $4245.00 in donations.

Chloe Mae
Georgia
Chloe Mae

Updated Bio 03/10/2014: CHLOE MAE is a 9.5 year old 12 lb. Yorkie-Poo girl who is being fostered near Atlanta GA.

Chloe Mae is very sweet and loving and dedicates herself to one person. She loves being near her person, that’s for sure, and can even be a bit protective. She doesn’t like loud voices or drama. She can also be very shy. It appears she has been trained with several basic commands such as sit, stay, shake. She is also almost completely house-trained if there is someone home to take her out often.

Chloe likes to ride in the car and is very well-behaved. She has her own bed and her own house/crate. Her house is her safe place and when she is anxious she will naturally retreat into it. Her perfect home would be one in which there is at least one stay-at-home person since Chloe really loves following her person around but she is well behaved when left on her own. Like most Yorkies, Chloe Mae is a bed dog and likes to sleep with her person. Chloe Mae seems to strongly prefer women. especially women that will take her on nice long walks. She can be very suspicious of most men.

Chloe can be a fear nipper and must be handled gently until a strong bond of trust can be established. This simply means that she cannot be cornered, physically disciplined, or handled roughly. A stern tone or strongly worded reprimand goes a long way. Chloe is not naturally aggressive. but because of this tendency to nip when scared. there can be no children in the home; she also needs an owner who will be firm with positive reinforcement training for this issue. Chloe Mae, however gets along well with other dogs and is the first to make sure that everyone is alright and happy. Chloe’s caring nature even extends to cats.

INITIAL BIO 10/14/2013

MEET CHLOE MAE! Chloe Mae is a 9 1/2 year old 12 lb Yorkie-Poo; she is being fostered outside of Atlanta.

Chloe Mae is a sweet loving, though somewhat shy, girl who has always been a ladies dog, but is learning to finally trust men. Her owner was heartbroken to give her up, but a recent job change required her to be out of town over a week each month; and she was having to board Chloe who was not handling the boarding environment very well. So the decision was made to seek a new loving full- time home for Chloe. Chloe can sit, stay, shake and, if she goes outside often enough, is house- trained. She loves cuddle time and gets along well with other dogs; she doesn’t mind cats either. She loves her bed and her house (shhh, it’s a crate but to her it’s her house).

Chloe needs moderate exercise and loves spending time exploring the large fenced back yard at her foster home. She communicates what she needs and will let you know when it’s time to come back in and when she needs more water in the bowl and when she needs to go outside. She has used wee-wee pads in the past, as well. Until Chloe becomes comfortable and trusting in her surrounds, she can be a fear biter (never anything serious, just a warning nip), but she would not do well in a home with children. It takes a while to earn her trust, but she’s worth it. NOTE: Chloe Mae can only go into an adult home.

From Chloe Mae:

Hi, my name is Chloe Mae but I’ve been trying to convince my FD to rename me Olivia. I’m think I like my FD, I know I want to be in whatever room he’s in, but it’s hard getting to know a new person especially the tall, loud man-people. I love to learn new skills and to get rewards! That’s fun and that’s why I say it’s cool to stay in school.

I love to go on walks and to explore the neighborhood. I can’t wait to make a new family with someone forever. I miss my mom, but I know somewhere out there she’s thinking of me and praying that I will find the right home to live in and person to love for the rest of my life. I heard my FD promising my mom that he would love me like his own until then, and that he would find me the bestest home ever where I wouldn’t have to spend time alone in a strange place in a cage anymore. I have my own condo and I go in and out all day. It’s my safe place where I can collect myself. I hope my new mom is out there somewhere reading this and will come take me to a home I’ll never have to leave again. I’ll promise to love you forever and ever.

Stevie

Stevie

THANK YOU TO STEVIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Patricia Berta, Irene and Peter Havas

INITIAL BIO: 04/03/2014

MEET STEVIE! Stevie is a 3 year old, 7.9 pound Yorkie mix (possibly Schnorkie); he is being fostered outside of Atlanta.

Stevie was rescued by a heroic woman who found Stevie and a couple of larger dogs neglected and being systematically starved to death by new occupants of a property after the original owner abandoned them. Stevie was most likely born with genetically defective eyes that never fully developed. The congenital abnormalities in both eyes have resulted in non-functional vision, exposure from lack of a functional blink, with subsequent discharge and discomfort. When he was found, his hair was so badly matted it wasn’t even clear that he had eyes. Stevie’s has visited a doggie ophthalmologist, who has recommended that both eyes be removed to prevent infection and irritation. Currently, Stevie’s eyes must be moistened repeatedly during the day with eye drops.

Despite his special needs, Stevie has no other apparent issues. He is now healthy and cleaned up and his 3-year-old fearless playful puppy personality cannot be denied. While Stevie wants to sit in his person’s lap as much as possible, he also loves to play with his squeaky toys, too. Stevie is very affectionate, friendly, smart and playful and once he has mapped and memorized his surroundings, he gets along extremely well. Stevie does not navigate stairs, but he can jump up into your lap. Stevie is fine with cats so far and presumably would be okay with children over the age of 14 as long as they are instructed on how to care for a little guy with special needs.

Stevie wanted to add something in his own words:

“Hi Yorkie lovers, it’s me Stevie! They tell me that I can’t see, but I don’t ever remember ever being able to see much. I do remember being cold or hot and always hungry and lonely. I had doggie friends who were much bigger than I was, but they were also cold and hungry and we all lived in a small overgrown patch of weeds with a chain link fence. It was a sad time. I was saved by a very persistent lady who took me home with her and gave me food and a bath and lots of love. She was there to rescue my bigger brothers and was told that she wouldn’t want me since I was blind. She took me anyway and I’ve never been so happy in my entire life. Now there’s always food and water and a lap to lay in, and at night instead of sleeping in the piles of trash I was used to sleeping in, I have a person to sleep next to. I couldn’t be happier! They tell me that someday I’ll have a forever home and a forever person to be mine for the rest of my life. I didn’t think it was possible, but I think that I might be even happier when I get to finally go home with my person. If you are my person, please hurry up and come get me. I can’t wait to smell you and make you my own!

THANK YOU TO TEX'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sarah Northmore, Todd Loccisano, Aaron Veach

UPDATED BIO 2/24/2014: Tex is 10-12 years old and weighs 3- 4.4 pounds; he is being fostered outside of Atlanta in Suwanee, GA. Tex is very sweet and loving and very dependent. He is a little hard of hearing and he doesn’t see very well. Tex requires a lot of attention throughout the day and night. He has painful arthritis and a collapsed trachea both of which require daily medication. He loves being near his person, that’s for sure and does not handle separation very well at all. He panics and chokes whenever he is crated or left alone. Tex is very strongly bonded to one person presently and seems to prefer men. Tex would do best in a family where someone is home all or most of the day. He is with his Foster Dad almost all day every day. He is not completely house trained and must wear a belly band all the time. He generally does some of his business outside but not if the weather is inclement. Tex hates the cold and sleeps very close to his person all night either on the pillow, in the crook of an arm or under the covers. He gets along with other dogs and has no interest in cats.

Tex’s adoption donation is $195, and includes all vetting, spay, microchipping and lab work, in addition to the registration fee for registering her microchip into her new owner’s name(s). All of our foster dogs are fully vetted, altered and current on all vaccinations, including rabies. It is so seldom that the adoption donation will pay for the vetting costs these dogs so often need.

UPDATED BIO 08/19/2013: Tex is 10 years old and weighs 3.38 healthy pounds; he is being fostered outside of Atlanta in Suwanee, GA. Tex’ weight now is just right.

Tex is a loving companion and has completely bonded to his Foster Dad and is welcome to stay in his foster home as long has he needs in order for his forever family to find him. Tex gets plenty of love and lap time. He sleeps in the bed under the covers, or on FD’s pillow above his head. Tex hates being crated and it is the only thing that causes him to bark. Even then, Tex is nearly “bark-less”. When he gets excited, he gets a “coughing fit” instead; see, Tex has a collapsed trachea which is common in the Yorkshire Terrier breed. At this time, it does cause him to have a few “coughing” fits during the day, especially when he gets excited. He does not need medication right now for this.

Tex is very quiet and meows like a kitten or squeaks like a mouse when communicating. Due to his age, Tex has luxating patellas and arthritis in his rear hips, so he gets an anti-pain/anti-inflammatory Rx every day and glucosamine added to his food. He takes his pill like a good boy without any fuss. Tex has to go out to do his business every 2-3 hours. His bladder is very small and his thirst is very large; therefore, he wears a bellyband to mitigate those few times where he just can’t hold it. He generally wakes up dry in the morning though. Tex likes to be carried and to travel around with you. The world is a fascinating place to Tex.

Tex wanted to add his comments to what Foster Dad said: Here goes……………………

Hey Y’all, Tex here, well dang nabbit don’t that beat all. I think my FD has gone all soft on me. That’s ok with me though. He and I is like peas and carrots! I ‘speck I would get along with jes ‘bout anyone if they sit still long enough to give me a place to safely lay my head. I am shore excited.. .they is gonna take this here gol’ durn wire outta my mouth in the next week or two and then we can see ‘bout getting’ the rest of these here teefus cleaned and pulled. (NOTE: Tex arrived in UYR with a broken bottom jaw and it has been wired to stabilize it) It don’t affect my eating none though, but this here wire can sure be kinda prickly. I gotta hurry off and do some lickin’on this here FD of mine. I gotta make sure he knows how greatful I am by a lickin’on him every chance I gets. FD says I got a tongue longer than Mick Jagger, whoever that is. I don’t care. I ain’t á gonna compete with nobody. I’m just gonna get my licks in while I can. Y’all, I ain’t in no particular hurry, this is a nice place and I found me a couple of people to love, but I shore wish I knowed where my forever home was gonna be. I’ve got a lotta licks and kisses saved up for ya!

NOTE: Because of his small size, Tex cannot be adopted into a home with children under the age of 14 years old. Please, there are no exceptions to this policy.


To date we've spent $722.05 on Tex's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $114.50 in donations.

Madeline
Illinois
Madeline

THANK YOU TO MADELINE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Paula Shal, Cynthia Duranti, Esmeralda Martinez

Update 02/06/14: Miss Madeline is wishing everyone a Happy Valentines Day. Madeline is doing good & is not really enjoying all of the cold & snow. She is 6 years old & now weighs 7 lbs. Since being spayed & having all of her rotten teeth removed she is enjoying life. She was very thin & you could feel all of her ribs,spine, & hip bones. She had all of her teeth removed. They were very infected & she still has a fistula into the nasal cavity because one of her teeth was very infected. she is healing well & enjoys soft food. she has filled out nicely & loves her person very much. She attaches very quickly to people & follows her FM everywhere. She would love to find someone who is retired or works from home. She needs a fenced yard & would probably do best with an all adult home. She likes other dogs & I'm not sure about cats. She is not a barker & is pretty calm & laid back. She loves the life of a pampered lap dog!! Maddie would like to thank Bridget & Chelsea for finding her & helping her get to UYR so she can have the life she has always dreamed about!!

Update 12/10/13: Madeline 5-7 yrs old & 4.9 lbs. Maddie has been spayed & had a much needed dental. She lost all of her teeth. Probably due to lack of care & a very poor diet. Her teeth were very infected at the gums & the bone. she had a fistula by one of the upper canines that were removed. Maddie will soon be recovered & looking for her dream home. She hopes to find an all adult home with someone that is retired or works from home. A fenced yard is a must. Please no small children as she is very small & timid. Maddie is a real sweetheart & would love to have someone to cuddle with on the cold snowy winter nights. No more wandering as a stray for this sweet girl!!

Initial Bio 12-01-13: Madeline (Maddie) Is 6-7 years old and weighs 4.6 lbs. She was found as a stray in Arthur,IL. Arthur has many Amish puppy mills so it is thought that she came from on of them. Maddie was lucky; she was found by some wonderful caring people and kept safe warm and fed until she could come to UYR. She is a real sweetheart who would do best in an all adult home with no small children that live there or visit. She needs someone who is home most of the time to give her the love and attention she has missed out on in life. She will need to be spayed and have a much needed dental. She is quite a snuggler and loves to follow her foster mom everywhere. She will soon be looking for her furever home. If you are interested in Maddie please fill out an application.


To date we've spent $1348.10 on Madeline's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $75.00 in donations.

Bear
Indiana
Bear

Initial Bio 03/09/14: Bear is a 1 1/2 year old, 10 lb. Morkie (Maltese/Yorkie) being fostered in Westfield. His owner surrendered him to UYR because they are relocating to a place that does not take dogs. Bear is neutered and up to date on vaccinations. He is adorable and would make a wonderful companion.

Bio Update 4/3/14: Bear is loving being a part of a multiple dog household right now in foster care. He is learning to share toys, eat only out of his food bowl and how to share his foster mom's lap with the other dogs. My grandson is working with him and he has learned to sit for a treat and sit to have his harness put on to go for a walk. He is working with him on "drop it" when he picks up something that he is not supposed to have (Bear came to UYR with a little trouble with "possessive aggression" when it came to him getting something that he is not supposed to have) Bear is very good sharing toys and also bringing a toy to someone so they can throw it for him. He is very smart and is learning what is expected of him very quickly. It may be hard to teach old dogs new tricks, but it sure isn't hard to teach this young guy new things!!!

Bear's new family should be experienced dog owners and have dedicated time to spend with him playing and walking with him. He is crate trained and hesitantly goes into his crate when told to "get in your crate". He does not bark or jump in his crate and sleeps all night in it. He is housetrained and will go to the door and bark or whimper when he needs to go out.

If you are looking for a lap dog and a constant shadow, Bear will be your guy!! He even likes to sit or lay at my feet while I am cooking, doing dishes or folding laundry, so he can be your best new helper if chosen to be part of your furever family!!


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

Raye Mayhorn, Casey Savelli, Raye Mayhorn, Marsha Bernhardt

Initial Bio 11/18/13: Meet Desi. He is a FRAGILE little guy who weighs a tiny 2.1 lbs. He is estimated to be between 2-4 years of age. We are not sure of Desi's past, but it appears his jaw has been broken. Desi is a real sweet heart. He loves people and loves to cuddle. He has energy and is an affectionate dog, despite his size and condition. Foster mom says Desi has a lot of spirit and is hopeful that he has a bright future. Desi's vet recommends a 3 pound weight gain before he can be considered for adoption, so in the meantime, please keep Desi in your thoughts and prayers. A donation in his name would also be appreciated.

Teddy
Iowa
Teddy

Update 04/10/14: While Teddy is good with other dogs and children, he needs a quite home, maybe with a retired couple or person. He growls like he is going to rip you apart, but never EVER bites....he just makes noise.... I have done everything under the sun to test him on the biting, willing to take one for the team to find out his breaking point, he has never bitten me. He does not like having his butt shaved....lol But still just made a bunch of noise....does anyone know of someone who wants a very cuddly 9 year old sweetheart have them contact me please!

Initial Bio 03/31/14: Hello, My name is Teddy. I was just rescued today by United Yorkie Rescue. I am being fostered in Urbandale Iowa. I can not tell you how happy I am to be back in a home environment, I have been sitting on my foster moms lap since we got home. I was very happy to meet my foster fur brothers when I first got here, we were all I wagging our tails. So far things are going well, I have been here for about an hour so far. My foster mom will surely be teaching me how things are done here, like how to share her lap, how to let her know when I need to go potty and all the other things my foster brothers seem to already know. My birthday is March 19th 2005. Happy Belated birthday to me. My belated birthday wish is to have a forever family very soon! I would love to be with people most of the time, that way I won't get lonely.

Love, Teddy

Benji
Massachusetts
Benji

THANK YOU TO BENJI'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Todd Loccisano, Todd Loccisano

Initial Bio 01/01/14: Benji is a Hurricane Katrina survivor who lost his owner and was taken into rescue. He was found to have heartworm disease and successfully underwent treatment. Benji has a seizure disorder that is easily treated with an inexpensive medication. He does require a limited diet of Prescription dog food Hill's I/D and a spacer ball to be placed in his food bowl to slow his eating. Eating too much and too quickly can bring on a seizure.

Benji will need a securely fenced yard because he is a little escape artist. He enjoys basking in the sun and perching on lawn furniture. He loves to be with people and will cuddle up next to them. He loves other dogs, but care must be taken to ensure he doesn't help himself to dog food that other dogs are consuming. He is fearful of loud noises, thunder and lightening and is very fearful of fireworks. Benji enjoys rope toys that are designed to help clean teeth, and he loves playing with a tennis ball. He loves to have his hair brushed with a very soft brush and to be cuddled and patted. He is a very , very good dog and he loves to be loved. He prefers covered cat beds to the traditional dog bed (it helps him feel more secure, particularly during rain storms). He is a little boy who due to his size would be better in a home with no small children.


To date we've spent $1386.73 on Benji's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $100.00 in donations.

Cami (and Suki)

THANK YOU TO CAMI'S RESCUE ANGELS

Sandy Pagnotta, Sandra Wendt, Rick and Libbye Schoeny

UPDATE BIO 02/10/2014 – Hi it’s me, Cami, an 8 year old 4.5 lb Yorkie living in Mount Pleansant SC here to entertain you. Thought first I would tell you a little bit about myself. I am the most beautiful creature you have ever seen. I have a perfect black coat, FM said she found a grey hair the other day but I don’t believe her. My personality is second to none. My shape is perfect (FD has the audacity to call me round dog) . I have been having trouble with the leaves in the back yard, my tommy drags on them and they are wet. I could go on for hours telling you how great I am but mom wants me to tell you a little about my new foster sister. We are caring for the sweetest little girl (3.5Lbs) who has cancer. She is having a little trouble getting around but we help her as much as we can. She likes to eat and eats more than me but she still is losing weight. I don’t understand. Christmas was great. That is a time when I would have loved to be a boy. Can you imagine someone bring a tree inside when it was so cold outside. Fortunately there are no boys in this house. Sammie, see moms bio, tried to lift his leg but since he only has one rear leg he fell over. FD got mad at me for laughing. Any way I hope you all have a great day and for all of you up north, it was 70 degrees and sunny today, here in God’s country.

UPDATE BIO 09/07/2013: Hi this is Cami, I am 8 years old and weigh about 4.5 lbs. and live in Mount Pleasant SC. (Charleston). If you like doggie kisses I am the one for you. I love to give kisses to the people I love. Mom (Suki) is a little more conservative. I love to roll over and let you rub my tummy. My foster mom calls me a floozy, what does she mean. I am a quiet dog except when Vixen runs by I love to jump on her. She doesn’t stop but I try to slow her down. I do love to eat, but must be on grain free food. You know like eggs bacon, sausage, toast, pizza or whatever I can con foster dad out of. I don’t think that is their idea of grain free food. They give me this brown dry food that comes in a Maroon bag. It is ok but does not taste as good as the stuff I mentioned first. Sometimes foster dad calls me round dog, that’s mean. I suppose I could lose a half a pound or so but eating is my favorite time. If you have enough love in your heart for mom and me, we would love to come live with you. Cami

UPDATED BIO 06-22-13: Cami is 8 1/2 years old and weighs 4.4 lbs; she and her mom, Suki, are being fostered in Mount Pleasant, SC. They are a bonded mother/daughter pair and must be adopted together.

Cami here. I’m the cut one. My mom Suki is ok but I surely got all the looks in this family. Foster mom and dad are great people and snuggle me a lot. It will be hard to leave here, but its time to find a permanent home. We are a great pair of dogs and love anyone who will scratch our bellies. We never bark, have accidents or do anything naughty. My foster mom just said my nose is growing, what does she mean??? anyway some one is rattling my food dish so I am out of here!

UPDATED BIO 04-30-13: Cami is 8 1/2 years old and weighs 4.4 lbs; she and her mom, Suki, are being fostered in Mount Pleasant, SC. They are a bonded mother/daughter pair and must be adopted together.

Cami here, see Suki’s Bio, I let her speak for the both of us, She thinks she’s the boss. It’s easier if we let her think that.

UPDATED BIO 03/20/2013: Suki and Cami are a mother daughter pair who are being fostered in Mt Pleasant, SC. Suki is older at 9.5 years old and 5.2 lb. Cami is her daughter at 8.5 years old and 4.4 lbs. They have always been together and must be adopted to the same home.

Cami reporting here ~ I just thought I would let you know what the last eight days have been like. My Mom (Suki) and I were dropped off at this stranger’s house one night. She gave us some meds to help with the fleas, put us in bed with her and went to sleep. Mom (Suki) cried half the night because she was homesick, but finally after several hours she settled down so everyone could sleep. The next morning some other stranger picked us up, put us in a little travel case and took us to the airport. These are some cool machines there that go up in the air. Mom and I got to ride on one of these machines for over 2 hours. When the ride was over, I noticed we were not in the same place as when we left, I don’t understand. Once again we were left with strangers.

They seem to be nice people. They feed us, let us sleep with them and give us a lot of love. We go on rides with them a lot. One time they stopped at this place that did all kinds of weird things to us. They poked us with needles, putting fluid in us then taking red fluid back out and put a cold disc on my tummy. When it was all over they said we were in pretty good condition considering our ages. Foster Mom, I really like her, said we had to go back one more time. She said we would go there and take a nap, wake up with clean teeth and would be spayed. I don’t know what spayed means, but she said we had to do this so we could live a long healthy life. Well that’s it for now! Mom and I will keep you up to date as things progress. Bye! NOTE: Because of their tiny sizes, these girls can only be adopted into an adult only home, no children, please!

NOTE FROM FOSTER MOM: Cami & Suki do not look nor act their ages. Cami is a little more relaxed, while Suki is a mover and a shaker! She likes to keep up with everything going on in the house and yard. These girls needed dentals and to be altered, and had to be brought up-to-date on their vaccinations, too. So if you can help out with a donation towards their medical bills, they said that will allow them to take in other little needy foster doggies like us!

INITIAL BIO 03/12/2013: Meet Suki and Cami! Suki and Cami are a mother daughter pair who are being fostered in Mt Pleasant, SC. Suki is older at 9.5 years old and 5.2 lb. Cami is her daughter at 8.5 years old and 4.4 lbs. Bother were surrendered by their owners who had them since they were puppies because they could no longer care for them. Both girls are wee pad trained (a few pee pee accidents on the floor, but that's to be expected in the first few days). Both girls love walking outside (Suki a little more than Cami). Both girls are very sweet and love snuggling with you on the couch (and yes, they are used to sleeping with their person/people) :). Cami is a little more relaxed while Suki is a mover and a shaker! She likes to know what's going on at all times :). They do NOT look or act their ages!

Both girls will need to be fully vetted including vaccines, heartworm test, fecal, microchipping, and spay/dental. They are loveable little girlies and want to be adopted together, as that is how it has been for the past 8.5 years. Since they are so tiny, please no homes with kids. We are also very appreciative of any donations to help cover their vetting. Thanks so much for looking!!

Gibbs

Gibbs

Update 04/14/14: 4-11-14 Hello my name is Gibbs. I weigh 5.3 lbs. and live in Mount Pleasant SC (Charleston)

I was walking the streets of the Big Easy, enjoying the festivities of Fat Tuesday. Boy they sure know how to party in New Orleans. All of a sudden this really nice man picked me up and took me to a real nice place they call the New Orleans SPCA. I spent a long time there, it was OK. They poked and prodded me giving me shots and all kinds of stuff. I had this really bad abscessed tooth that was causing me to have big sore on my nose. They also said something about a galloping heart beat (whatever that is) I was feeling quite bad. Then I heard a rumor that they were going to euthanize me because no one wanted me because of my medical problems. I don’t know what euthanize means but it didn’t sound good.

The next day my new foster mom and dad from United Yorkie Rescue showed up and we went for a long car ride back to Charleston, better known as God’s Country. Now is when all the thing started to happen to me. I got a full body x-ray, something called an echo cardiogram, more shots, meds for a urinary tract infection, a cold which gave me a raspy voice, teeth cleaned and the bad tooth that caused all the problems was pulled. What a week. So now I am getting all the meds I need to get back to my healthy, handsome self.

Any way I am feeling much better and my infections should be cleared up soon. Dr. Perry says my heart is fine. One of my valves has a very minor leak but nothing to worry about. I would love to have a new home now that I am all tuned up and ready to go. My little brain is stressed from all this talking, time for a nap. Sir Gibbs the Great

INITIAL BIO 03/04/2014: MEET GIBBS! He is a 3-5 year old, 5.50 lb yorkshire terrier; he is being fostered in Mount Pleasant, SC. Gibbs will be seen by the vet tomorrow for his intake exam so please stay tuned for more info on him.

THANK YOU TO SUKI'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Sandra Wendt

UPDATE BIO 02/10/2014 – Hi, Suki, here. I am 9 years old and weigh about 5 lbs. and live in Mount Pleasant SC. (Charleston)Did you think I got lost? Foster mom is the one who has been slacken. She says she has been very busy so we must forgiver her for not getting this to you sooner. Christmas was interesting. Vixen went to join her brother again and I hear she is very happy to be back with him. They were together since they were pups. Now that she is gone it is so peaceful here. I can sleep if I want without someone bugging me and always wanting to play, boy could she wear me out. I still have my daughter Cami here she is so sweet and I could never leave her. At Christmas we had a bunch of family, friends and dogs here. I’m talking 7 dogs. There was Annie (formerly Faye from WI). She thinks she owns this place, I guess she does, she is a former foster now in her permanent home. Sammie, a foster that lost his leg from a collision with a Suburban SUV. He has a permanent home with my FM & FD’s daughter, my daughter Cami, Cindy Lou (Who) a new forever foster who has cancer, Maggie a Maltese and Tillie a Shih Tzu puppy both belonging to FM & FD’s son and of course “Miss Wonderful” me. I am not sure why but FD said something about shooting anyone that rang the doorbell. Any way that’s it for now I will let you hear from Cami about Cindy Lou.

UPDATE BIO 09/07/2013: Hi this is Suki, I am 9 years old and weigh about 5 lbs. and live in Mount Pleasant SC. (Charleston) I am a mom of several beautiful puppies, and one of those puppies is still with me here in Charleston. Her name is Cami and she will always be by my side. Yesterday foster mom trimmed my bangs so I could see and then took me outside to try and get some pictures. Boy does that camera scare me. I will not look at it as much as they try to make me. It has become a game; whenever I hear a click I turn my head so they can’t see my face. Foster mom gets so frustrated, I think it’s funny. Cami and I would like to find a good forever home. We will snuggle with you and give you all the love you can handle. Sleeping in bed is the best part. I will sleep on the pillow on top of your head and Cami must be touching you all the time. Maybe she is insecure, who knows. When they let us out in the back yard Vixen always wants to play. She runs and runs it makes me tired. I think I will take a Sunday afternoon nap, goodnight.

Update 06-22-13: Suki here. I am 9 year old and weighing in at 5.2 lbs.. I am being fostered in Mount Pleasant SC Well all you great people out there Cami my daughter and I are still looking for that forever home. We love our foster Mom and Dad but really want a permanent home. Some times it gets a little testy around here. This morning I counted 7 Yorkies, Its like looking in the mirror with out a mirror. Tiring to get undisturbed attention is impossible. Please think about it, we are great dogs, just want some love.

UPDATED BIO 04/13/2013: Suki and Cami are a mother/daughter pair who are being fostered in Mt Pleasant, SC. Suki is older at 9.5 years old and weighs 5.2 lb.

Suki here, it seems that lazy daughter of mine is napping so I guess you will hear from me this time. The last 30 days have been a little exciting. Both Cami and I have been spayed and had our teeth cleaned. The teeth cleaning was a bit of a problem. You see my last owner never had our teeth cleaned and they were really nasty and infected. The dentist was able to save a couple of teeth in the back of both mine and Cami’s mouth; but we feel much better now that the rotten teeth have been removed.

Sometimes my tongue wants to fall out since there's no teeth to keep it in, but I get it under control. Cami and I are looking for a forever home now that treats us just like our foster mom and dad. Here are some of the things we require.....

- We must be able to sit on your lap whenever you sit down.

- We must have at least two square meals a day. (Cami is on a grain free diet)

- We must be able to sleep in bed with you

- We must never put in crates

- We must be taken for regular walks

- We must have a forever mom/dad that will just love us to death.

Well, so long for now.... Cami just woke up and wants to go outside. See you later. XOXOXO Suki

UPDATED BIO 03/20/2013: Suki here. My daughter Cami has said it all. She is a typical daughter, hogging the spotlight. Read her bio this time maybe next bio she will leave something for me. Bye for now. NOTE: Because of their tiny sizes, these girls can only be adopted into an adult only home, no children, please!

NOTE FROM FOSTER MOM: Cami & Suki do not look nor act their ages. Cami is a little more relaxed, while Suki is a mover and a shaker! She likes to keep up with everything going on in the house and yard. These girls needed dentals and to be altered, and had to be brought up-to-date on their vaccinations, too. So if you can help out with a donation towards their medical bills, they said that will allow them to take in other little needy foster doggies like us!

TN Scout
Tennessee
TN Scout

Initial Bio 03/30/2014

Scout is an adorable male Silky Terrier who is 6 years old, weighs 14 lbs and is being fostered in Ashland City, TN. Scout is an owner surrender whose owner surrendered him to UYR when she could no longer care for him due to job changes requiring frequent multi-day travel and change in her family living situation. Scout came from a loving, devoted owner who adored him and provided him with great care.

However, Scout has some health issues that will require him to have a special kind of Forever Home. Scout has insulin dependent Diabetes. This sounds scary but millions of humans have this condition and manage it just fine with the use of insulin shots. The same is true for Scout. He has been getting insulin shots twice a day for a long time and to him it is no big deal to him. He just sits quietly for his twice daily shots that must be given right after his meals.

While Scout does not mind his insulin shots, potential adopters must know that it is VERY IMPORTANT that he get them without fail. His health and in fact his life depend on getting his insulin shots twice a day, 12 hours apart right after eating. Whoever takes Scout needs to understand this completely before applying to adopt him.

Because of Scout’s diabetes potential adopters should also know and agree to:

* Scout must be fed a high quality, low grain/low carbohydrate dog food. Cheaper dog foods with a lot of grain/carbohydrates in them will cause his blood sugar to be too high.

*Because of Scout’s diabetes, he does have some early vision changes. He is not blind but probably can’t see as well as other dogs his age.

*Monthly expenses for Scout’s insulin and syringes will average about $55.00-$65.00 per month on top of the expense associated with caring for any dog.

Please don’t apply to adopt Scout if any of these things will create a hardship for you OR if you have an irregular schedule that would prevent you from giving Scout his meals and insulin on the regular schedule he needs.

Scout has only been in his foster home for a few hours, but so far, he has shown what a good boy he is. He is calm and mellow and gets along with the other dogs after introduction. His former owner also says he is fine with cats. He is a very loving and affectionate boy who loves to play and give kisses! Keep checking back for updates as his foster mom gets to know him better.


To date we've spent $106.96 on TN Scout's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Coco
Texas
CoCo

THANK YOU TO COCO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sileste Roy, Debbie Harris, Monica Champion, Irene and Peter Havas, Angela Murphy, Monica Champion, John Sauser, Savvy Fox Designs, Eric McStay, Barbara Carvalho, Elisha Bryant, Alex Kullman, Holly Stavis, Holly Stavis, Paul Sherman, Jennifer Tobiansky, Paul Sherman, LeNora Armbruster

Coco has this video out. Please, watch.

Updated Bio 03/08/14: CoCo has been a busy girl recovering from her chronic ear infections and paralysis. She improves a bit every day. Unfortunately, the paralysis to her face that prevented her from blinking and lubricating her eye did not resolve and despite ointments, she did develop an eye ulcer. The best course of action was to surgically remove her eye and that was done at the end of January. Also CoCo's "wheels" have arrived and as you can see from her new picture, she doesn't seem to be enjoying them. She tends to push herself backwards and will need to be put into the cart for short periods of time frequently throughout the day to help her adjust. We know she will get the hang of it in time. For now, she gets around quite well on carpeting and outside despite the fact that her back legs are completely paralyzed. Her fur has started to grow back and she is quite the cutie as you can see.

Initial Bio 01/02/14: Coco is an owner surrender. She is only 4 years old, but has had a history of chronic ear infections. She is currently being treated for bilateral vestibular disease as a result of those ear infections. Unfortunately, Coco's back legs are paralyzed. The neurologist believes this could be as a result of the ear infections affecting her brain stem or possibly of a secondary cervical issue. Either way, Coco needs help to get around. She is only 4 lbs and tries really hard to pull her back legs to get around. She could really use a cart. United Yorkie Rescue has already spent over $500 for her vet care. If anyone could donate money for a cart or donate a cart appropriate for her size, that would really help this little girl out.


To date we've spent $1673.82 on CoCo's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1331.00 in donations.

Lexie
Texas
Lexie

THANK YOU TO LEXIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta

Update 04/19/14: Lexie is about to go back into training for her next steps. She's a sweet dog - loves adults and teenagers, but isn't good around young children with high energy. She seems to be very nervous around them and isn't on her best behavior. Lexie must be adopted into a home with only adults, and she needs to be the only dog. In this setting, she will thrive. Lexie's foster mom takes her to dog parks, but keeps her on a leash as she continues to work on her socialization skills.

Update 4/3/14: Lexie is being fostered in Austin TX. She is 8 years old, 12 pounds and needs to be an only dog in a household with no children.

Lexie's foster mom continues to work on her socialization skills with a trainer who reports that Lexie is one of the most clever terriers she has seen. Lexie loves to play, is housetrained (but you need to watch for her signal), is leash trained and loves to sit on your lap. Lexie is an active and loving little girl who needs a bit more work to make her a perfect companion. Please watch for progress updates on Lexie.

INITIAL BIO 09/09/13: Roll out the red carpet, ladies & gents, because we definitely have a super special gem here... Introducing Lexie!

Lexi is 8 yrs young and is being fostered in Texas. This sweetness of a girl is quite the entertainer! She has personality to the moon & back! I've only had her for 7 days, so I'm certain there remains much more to learn about lil' Miss. As she settles into her new surroundings & begins to express more, I will update my thoughts on her needs and what I think her best forever home would look like, but for now, here are a few things I've noticed:

She LOVES to play!! Can't stress this enough! She seems to prefer the ball, but she'll fetch, (and retrieve very nicely, dropping at your feet), any toy.

She definitely needs to be monitored (when outside in the hot weather) because she'll fetch endlessly, exhausting herself, & heat exhaustion can happen quick with terrible consequences. I always have water on hand when we go to the park & make her rest every 3 to 4 throws. She LOVES people, (she's an owner surrender, by the way, who reported Lexie exhibiting anxious behavior around young children, but I have yet to observe this).

She walks well on a leash, is housebroken (she always goes to the door, but you must be observant of this bc it's her only que), she barks when someone is on the porch, but not otherwise. Her favor spot is on your lap and she likes to be touching you when it's time for sleeping.

She is my permanent shadow at the moment. This may change as she feels more relaxed & comfortable with the changes. Her recall at the dog park is pretty good after only a week. I always have training treats to reward when she responds. Usually, however, she's either chasing her ball or begging you to chunk it, so recalling her isn't necessary. At this point, there is only one issue that I see & that is that she will probably need to be an only dog. She has exhibited dog aggression over her toy/ball, whomever's lap she's in, & on occasion, even the couch. I've seen her advance towards a dog to defend whatever territory she believed to be threatened. She seems pretty adamant with this behavior, so I'm not sure, at 8 yrs old, it'd be likely to change.

Other than that, Lexie is an outstanding girl. She's a true joy & gives so much... Whoever is lucky enough to adopt her will fall completely in love! I have no doubt because I'm skipping down that road after 1 short week. Stay tuned for more to come...

For questions about Lexie or to apply for her adoption, please contact Heather: frankdheather@gmail.com


To date we've spent $871.31 on Lexie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $65.00 in donations.

Orion

Orion

THANK YOU TO ORION'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta

11/15/13 Hello Peps! Sorry I've been off the grid for awhile but I have Great news!!!! See my Dogtor had diagnosed me with Renal Failure sometime ago but turns out I had a terrible Bacterial Infection that made me very ill. Now that the infection is cleared I have been 100% healthy. I can now say I am Negative for Renal Failure/Kidney Disease. But the Dogtor also said that I should have my Kidney levels check twice a year because the Bacterial Infection did caused some damage to my Kidneys. So no more special dog food for this little Firecracker!! So just a little re-cap.....I get along great with other dogs, good with house cats, I love people and children, I love to snuggle and I love going on walks and car rides!! I am ready for my Furever home, so if your looking for a little Firecracker to light up your house take a chance on me....Scabberdabberdoo Peace Out!:)

Update 07/24/13 Hello Peps, Orion here AKA Scabbers, Scabby, Scabs, Scabba-Dabba-Doo....anywho just wanted to let y'all know I have finally been neutered!! I am doing extremely well with Renal Failure and staying on my K/D diet and drinking filtered water, haven't been sick in 2 months.!! I am very happy and healthy and ready for my Furever family! I have loads of energy, love to play with everyone and anything, love walks and especially car rides...if the door is ajar I'll jump in that dang ole car:)!! So please fill out an adoption application and I could be yours Furever!!

Update 06-24-13: Hello Orion AKA Scabbers here!! Just a quick up-date......I've been having a hard time, been really sick lately with a Bacterial Infection! My Doc had put me on some antibiotics and I have been feeling so much better! The bacterial infection has cleared now and I haven't had any more set backs from being neutered. I was scheduled twice already for neutered but no luck.....maybe third times the charm(scheduled for neutered on July 18th)! I'll talk at y'all later after my big day. Peace Out:)

Update 06/05/13: Orion continues to be a sweet dog. He loves to ride in cars and he loves everyone! He's great with adults and children and mostly good with his furry foster siblings. Orion still has some issues sharing, but once he's been neutered, we think that will not be a problem. Unfortunately, Orion is not well. He has been diagnosed to be in Renal Failure with Kidney Disease, although it isn't affecting him terribly right now. He is doing quite well by following a strict KD diet, and only drinking filtered water, but the long-term prognosis is unsure. At this time, Orion is at the vet with a fever that his doctor has determined is unrelated to the Renal Failure. They're doing more blood work to determine the cause. Because of all this, Orion isn't quite available for adoption yet. We're working to get him healthy enough to be neutered, then will make the determination about his availability.

Orion's medical bills are rising, and any help you can give for this sweet young dog would be greatly appreciated. Thanks very much!

Update 05/05/13: 5/5/13 Hello Peps, Orion here(AKA Scabbers) Reason:when foster mom brought me home she noticed a gigantic scab on my head, no worries it's gone now. I was picked up as a stray and ended up at a shelter. Since being in my foster home I have been getting into trouble, I LOVE trash and trash cans!! I LOVE cars, and will jump into any car if the door is ajar!! I LOVE playing with children and balls(big or small). I love to play and go walking. I have to be fed separately, and it's best that I play alone with toys or else a fight will happen. I'm good with cat's, and I get along well with other dogs but Me, other dogs, toys and food don't mix so great. I do just fine in a crate but I do like sleeping in bed with foster parents and I am house broken! I love attention and like to be the center of attention by my human companions. Would you please consider adopting, and adding me as a long life friend to your family?!!

Initial Bio 04/20/13: Hello my name is Orion! I'm a 13 lbs Yorkie, had all my shots, and will be neutered on May 15th. I have only been in my foster home for a few days now, still getting acquainted. But we can tell you this.....I love car rides, walking, I get along very well with other dogs and cats, and I have already gotten attached and a bit clingy to my foster parents. Please stay tuned for more to come!


To date we've spent $563.49 on Orion's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $25.00 in donations.

Tilly
Texas
Tilly

THANK YOU TO TILLY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Todd Loccisano

UPDATE: 04/10/14 – Well, Miss Tilly is doing very well after her dental surgery. She had to have five small teeth removed and parts of her gums had issues but all that has been fixed now. She will be on antibiotics for another couple of weeks as well as anti-fungal meds to clear up her bacterial issue. After she is off meds completely she will be good as new and raring to go to a wonderful, new forever home.

In the past few weeks Tilly has become a very happy little dog. Her tail wags all the time and even though she remains skittish and shy she is definitely becoming more and more secure as time goes by. She will even go on short walks now with a little bit of love and coaxing! She is also our Weather Girl. She knows hours in advance of any bad weather coming and will hide under the bed, shaking. However, with lots of hugs and kisses we are trying our best to assure her that she is safe.

Even though it will be a few short weeks before she is available (her mouth needs to heal and her fungal test needs to come back clear), we are accepting applications for Silly Tilly so if you think you could be the right home for this funny little girl, please fill out an application. We’d love to hear from you! Please note that Tilly needs to find a quiet home without children.

INITIAL BIO 3/1/14: “Silly” Tilly (full name is Chantilly Lace) is an owner surrender and is being fostered in McKinney, TX. Tilly is very sweet but very skittish. She is 7 years old and weigh 7.3 pounds (she’s slightly chunky and needs to lose a pound). She has a beautiful face with very long legs. Tilly was a breeder for the first 2 years of her little life and then she was adopted. After 5 years with her family, they can no longer afford her upkeep and healthcare so they left her at the shelter. So sad for everyone…

She currently has minor eye and ear infections and is recovering from ringworm and a bacterial infection that she had at her previous home. She will also be having her teeth cleaned. As soon as she finishes her meds she’ll be as good as new and ready to find a forever home. Tilly really is a sweetheart who, once she trusts you, gives little kisses and rolls over for her tummy to be tickled. She loves her food! She is mostly potty trained and uses both piddle pads and goes outside. She doesn’t give a sign about wanting to go outside so a piddle pad by the door is a good idea. Tilly obviously has not been taken on walks as she is terrified of being outside on a leash. We are working on that and taking her for “walks” in our arms to get her used to being on a leash outside.

Tilly gets on well with other small dogs. She likes both men and women but is very timid until she gets to know you. She needs a home that understands how her previous life as a breeder causes her to be extremely scared of noises and too much activity. She is prone to hide when frightened. A home with a single person or a couple would be perfect. No large families or small children as she would be too intimidated. A home where Tilly would be either an only doggie or with one or two other small doggies would be ideal. She will need lots of understanding and hugs to bring her fully out of her shell. Tilly does not need to be crated at all as her behavior is impeccable. She is not demanding in any way but is so happy to have gentle attention paid to her.

If you feel you have a quiet, loving home that could include “Silly” Tilly, then please contact Cynthia Stewart. Tilly should be ready for adoption within a few short weeks. This wonderful little girl deserves an equally wonderful home for the rest of her life.


To date we've spent $940.74 on Tilly's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $35.00 in donations.

Zoe

THANK YOU TO ZOE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Cynthia Duranti, Sandy Pagnotta, Jeffrey Dickman, Polly Talor, Sandra Wendt, Irene and Peter Havas, Irene and Peter Havas, Belinda Washington, Claire Paissides, Maryanne Ware, Beverly Rohde, John Sauser, Irene and Peter Havas, Mark Dozbaba, Irene and Peter Havas, Antonio Merlano, Nancy Carlson, Casey Savelli

PLEASE CONSIDER HELPING US WITH ZOE'S VET BILLS BY USING THE DONATION BUTTON BELOW

09-4-13-Zoe, our little senior lady who is 12 ½ and weighs 3.4 pounds, had her left eye removed 3 weeks ago. She is doing well, although she continues to have stomach issues. We are trying a new medication and it does seem to be helping. Her care has been so expensive. She needs to have a sonogram of her stomach if this new medication doesn’t work. If you can, please make a donation so we can continue to provide care for her. She is such an angel and deserves the best we can give her. We couldn’t continue to help these poor sick babies without support from caring people. Thank you to those that have already donated for her.

Update 08/07/13: Please say a prayer for sweet little Zoe. She is having her left eye removed tomorrow. When she was rescued she had ulcerations on her eye caused by chronic dry eye that had been left untreated. The dogtor tried several different medications to try to save the eye, but nothing seemed to work. Now the eye is causing her discomfort and she will feel so much better after it is removed.

Her vet bills are really mounting, so if you could help we would really appreciate it! She is such a sweet, special little girl. She deserves the best treatment possible!

Update 05/29/13: Zoe has been in foster care for 3 months. Unfortunately at this time she is not able to be considered for adoption. She continues to have trouble with her eye. We have tried 4 different medications and nothing seems to work. We are working with the vet to determine if it needs to be removed. She also has some stomach issues that need to be explored. Please stay tuned for updates on this little angel. Her care is very expensive; please consider making a donation to help her get the best possible care we can give her.

Initial Bio 03/13/13: Whoever said the best things come in small packages must have been talking about Zoe. She is a tiny little senior lady who weighs 3 pounds. She is so tiny people who see her think she is a puppy, but she is actually 12 years old. She was found in some apartments running loose, and was turned into animal control. She is microchipped, but all the owner’s phone numbers have been disconnected.

She saw the vet yesterday and she has several teeth that need extracted. There is so much infection it is affecting her nasal cavity. She also has ear mites and her left eye has inflammation and is scratched. She is being treated with two different eye drops. After two weeks we will know if she will regain vision in that eye. She is scheduled next week for her dental and extractions. Zoe’s heartworm test and fecal were both negative.

She is such a sweet little girl, and is very affectionate. She goes to the door when she needs to go potty, and also will use a potty pad. Stay tuned as we get to know her better.


To date we've spent $2854.17 on Zoe's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $730.00 in donations.
Please donate!

Cujo
Wisconsin
Cujo

Initial Bio 03/16/14: Hi Everybody, I'm Cujo! My Foster mom says I'm more like a Joey than a Cujo though!! I came from a very loving home where my mom took good care of me. After my dad died and mom got really bad allergies, they contacted United Yorkie Rescue to help find me a good home because my Mom was having trouble breathing. She was really sad to see me go and I was sad too. Well, Mom's got more to say so here she is...... This is FM, Cujo is a very sweet boy who was not getting much attention in his old home because of some sad circumstances. He is very sweet and craves LOTS of attention. He is a hefty 6.8 pounds but should be closer to 4.0 so we are working hard to get him down to a healthy weight. Cujo's medical past includes having trouble walking. We found out that he is positive for Lyme's disease which could be causing this in addition to the extra weight he has. Cujo has an infection in his mouth and is in desperate need of a dental where he will likely lose 6-8 teeth.

Cujo is a very sweet dog who would do best with a forever home where someone is home most of the day. He does not make much noise at all and does his business outside right away. Please no children under the age of 12 due to his size. Stay tuned as we get to know Cujo more!


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

Kodi

Kodi back home in cast
Wisconsin
Kodi

THANK YOU TO KODI'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Jacqueline Butler, Irene and Peter Havas, Sylvia Stapleton, Maryanne Ware, Patricia Brown, Pamela Reynolds, Barbara Carvalho, Antonio Merlano, Antonio Merlano, Sandy Pagnotta, Stacy Pintar, Kathleen Meaney, Jacqueline Butler, Vicki Neulinger, Kathy Burkhardt, Betty Manry, Bonnie Vaupel, Rayne Knudson, LeNora Armbruster, Craig Seal, Kimber Santorella, Cynthia Duranti, Michelle Lingle, Leonardo Artega, Cathy and Harold Bergh, Eileen Kinney, Sarah Davies, Kimber Santorella, Angela Diaz Vidaillet, Katie Rosebraugh, Nancy Higgins, Jan Hattingh, Annery Pulgar Alfonso, Eileen Kinney, Mary Cronin, Renae and Jerry Sutley, Sandra Gaweda, Verdana Roopnarine, Connie Pfeiffer, Karey Carter, Patricia Snodgrass, Erin Azar, Toni Williams, Marla Keidel, Susan Kornatowski, Susan Watts, Stacey Mushlin, Viktor Chubenko

Update 03/16/14: Kodi had his neuter surgery and dental where he lost 7 teeth. His teeth were much worse than expected as there was one that was cracked and others that were cutting into his lip. Kodi is still very underweight but is starting to enjoy his new high calorie diet now that his teeth don't hurt anymore. It has been wonderful to see this little soul blossom with all the care that you have made possible by your donations. He is a sweetheart who has been through so much. Thank you for your continued support!

Whats next for Kodi? - well, he will need to see the neurologist again to evaluate the pins and his swallowing. It is hard to describe, however, it seems that he is not efficient with his swallowing so he does tend to gag quite a bit. We are working on finding a combination of food type and consistency which may allow him to eat without a struggle. This week we are trying to syringe feed a more liquid diet. Stay tuned as we figure out what we need to do to get this little one up to a healthy weight!

Update 03/10/14: Kodi's surgery is considered a success! Thank you so much to all who have sent their good wishes, prayers and support for this special little guy. He is walking! Kodi will always have to be very careful as the pins could slip, but as things are now - everyone is pleased.

The next step for Kodi is to be neutered and get a dental and then find a forever family who will spoil him rotten the rest of his life!

Kodi's forever home will need to be one where there are no children and no other pets over 6 pounds due to his size and history. He still has issues walking and being secure with where he places his feet. To help this, he will need carpets or other secure footing where he cannot slip and fall - oh, and no stairs for this little guy! Kodi will need to see the neurologist at the Vet Hospital in Madison at least once a year to ensure his spinal chord remains protected.

Check out Kodi's new video!

Update 01/24/14: Kodi had his post surgery check up with pictures last week. So far, he is healing well. He has 4 pins in his neck that stabilize the C1/C2 vertebrae in his spine. Because he is such a small little thing, we knew there would be a risk with the pins not being just right. Kodi does have one pin that has entered the spinal column just a tiny bit. What does this mean? Hopefully nothing. The X-rays show that the healing process is underway and the "cement" they used has done it's job so the pins are not moving. The Neurologist does not expect that the pins will cause any problems for him in the future but still would like him to be thought of as a "fragile" dog. This means that he will need to avoid jumping up or down and no side-to-side movements like shaking his head. The best part is that the damage that has been done to his spinal chord has not progressed and he is not in pain. As time goes by, we will see how much healing he will have to the spinal chord. He still isn't secure about where his feet are in relation to his body and walks stiffly, but just a few months ago - he couldn't even walk! He sure has come a long way thanks to you and UYR!!

Kodi will need to wait another 4 weeks before he can be neutered, have a dental and then be adopted out. Kodi is super sweet and quite a snuggler! He will need a very special home to be adopted into. Please no children under the age of 15 or other dogs over 10 lbs as we want to give him the best chance at a pain free life and protect his neck. No electric fences or collars of any type for this little guy. His new family must be one who is willing to stay in touch with a neurologist to have him checked periodically to monitor his health and the location of his pins. If you are that special someone, please submit an application.

Kodi and I want to give a huge "Woof" out to all the rescue angels who are helping him receive the medical care he needs. Without your help, Kodi would not have made it. Thank You!!

Update 12/05/13: Kodi is doing better and better each day. He continues to be rather unsteady, but he is still making gains so we have high hopes that he will regain his strength. Kodi spends much of his time in seclusion from the other dogs and on our laps getting some much needed and deserved snuggles. He loves nothing more than to be cuddled for hours. Since his surgery, Kodi shakes a lot. Because he had to be shaved for his surgery, he does not have much hair on his neck and torso. We have been keeping him warm by keeping our fireplace warming his room when we are there and by him wearing a sweater. He is quite handsome in his pumpkin sweater! Kodi will be adopted out after he is reevaluated in several months. Because his new family will have to help him remain healthy by being careful, we ask that there not be any children in the home and any other pets will need to be 6lbs or under. This will help ensure that the surgery he underwent to stabilize the fracture in his neck continues to keep him pain free. Thank you for your continued prayers and financial support for little Kodi.

Update 11/23/13: Kodi is home now after his surgery. He had a very restless night last night at home. They were able to successfully place 4 pins in his vertebrae to stabilize his spine. They took bone marrow from his right shoulder and placed it around the pins. The hope is that the bone marrow along with the special cement they used will help encourage bone growth and help prevent any slipping of the pins. He is rather uncomfortable, but I am doing my best to make sure we keep ahead of his pain and snuggle with him as long as he wants to be close. Although the surgery is being viewed as a success, Kodi has a long road ahead of him while his neck heals and more bone is grown. He will return to the vet mid January for another CT to check how he is healing. To answer some questions, yes, Kodi will be available for adoption as soon as the vet says he is good to go. Right now, the surgeon would like him to stay with me for approximately 12 weeks. The perfect home for him will be one where he is the only dog or where the other dog is under 5 lbs also. To help ensure that Kodi remains healthy, his new family should help prevent him from jumping off of the couch, bed, or chairs and because of his size. Kodi would do best in a home that does not have children. Kodi should always be considered a fragile dog to ensure that the surgery remains a success. Thank you for your continued support for Kodi - he is a sweetheart who has not had the best life so far. It is our hope with your support that Kodi's future will be pain-free and full of love.

Update 11/08/13: Kodi came home on Tuesday with a cast on his neck to ensure stabilization. The hope is that the cast will allow the inflammation around his spinal chord to lesson and also give him some much needed time for his bones to age and become firmer. With hope, Kodi will have surgery on November 20th to insert pins to help to permanently stabilize his neck. Kodi probably always be "fragile", but with surgery, he has more of a chance of living out a pain-free life. Please keep Kodi in your thoughts.

Update 11/04/13: Kodi had a rough night last night as the UW vet school in Madison, WI tried to keep his pain down. Today, Kodi had a CT scan where we learned that Kodi does have Atlantoaxial luxation in C1/C2. Because he is young, the surgeons are wanting to give him a few weeks before surgery. To help minimize the pain and stabilize his neck, he will be fitted with a cast from his chin down his chest. He will have to remain in the cast until the surgeons feel he is ready for surgery. With luck, Kodi will come home tomorrow morning to spend 2-3 weeks here at home before he returns to be evaluated. The thinking is that he will rest, eat, and heal better if he is in his own bed. I wasn't able to see him today as they kept him quite sedated for the CT scan and to be sure the cast fit him properly. Thank you for your help and prayers for this special little guy. He has a rough road ahead of him, but he is in good hands.

Update 09/30/13: Hi Everybody - Kodi here. Well, guess what?? I CAN walk now without falling over! My FM mom says I'm not even very tipsy anymore. I'm getting pretty tired of staying in a really small area, but I know that I need it to get better so I just wait patiently for someone to pick me up.

FM- Kodi has really improved over the last few weeks. The medicine and confinement has allowed the fractures in his spine time to heal. Kodi will see a neurologist in a few weeks for more xrays and then we will have a better idea about his future. His progress has been amazing so far so I expect a great report from neurology. In spite of all he has been through, he remains a very sweet little guy. He is just starting to discover how much fun toys are and loves to bury bones in his blankets and dig them up for later! If you are interested in adopting little Kodi, please fill out an application and I will get back to you soon. The perfect home for Kodi does not have any children under the age of 12 and has someone that will be home a lot during the day with him. Kodi does not need a fence however, he would love one to be free to run. Oh, and no electronic fencing for our little man. Thanks for reading!

Update 09/10/13: Many people have contacted me regarding Kodi so I thought I would add some additional information: Yes, Kodi will be adopted out as soon as he is medically ready to go. I will know more in 2 weeks. Because he was stepped on and almost didn't make it, we are looking for a home without big dogs, no children under 12 and one that preferably has someone home frequently for him. Please understand that it is likely that he will be fragile for some time so we are trying to find a home for him that will give him every chance possible to heal and be a normal happy little puppy. Thanks for understanding!

Initial Bio 09/09/13: Meet Kodi - a 9 month old 3lb male Morkie....with a tail! He is the sweetest little thing! Kodi has had a very rough beginning in his short life. His first owner had larger dogs who, it is presumed, stepped on poor little Kodi. He was taken to the vet who diagnosed him with tetraparesis (he wasn't able to use any of his legs), but without xrays was sent home with pain meds and after a month was taken in by a different family - his guardian angels - who helped give him some healing time and the attention he needed. These angels contacted rescue after a short time because they knew we would be able to help little Kodi. They cared for him for 2 weeks and allowed him time to begin healing and walking again. When Kodi came to rescue he was walking, but it was clear that there was something wrong. After several xrays and consultations, the vets found that there was an issue with the disc spaces on L5-6 and L6-7 in his spine. These discs are basically right above his shoulder blades. It was also discovered that he has a bone spur/fracture off of C4 on his cervical spine..... What does all this mean for little Kodi? Well, he needs strict confinement and anti-inflammatory medicine for 2 weeks to see if he can continue to heal on his own. If he does not get better, Kodi will need surgery.

Kodi is very week on his right side and will wobble when he walks. We are hopeful that this will improve with time as Kodi has come so far in just a few weeks - from not being able to move his legs to walking. He is a fighter! If you can help with his care, we sure appreciate any amount. If not, you can also help by keeping little Kodi in your prayers. Thank you!

Updated Bio 04/11/14: Scout is a 9 month old, 5.3 lb. little Yorkie boy. His weight has been steady at 5.3 for over two months, and is a very good weight for him.

Well, it's wonderful news for Scout! His bile acids results came in on Wednesday, and everything went down once more!

The results from:

02/06/2014

Scout fasted for 12 hours.

Bile acids (pre) food: 13.4 should be no higher than 6.9

Bile acids (post) food: 58.2 should be no higher than 14.9

Here Are Scouts New Numbers. Results From 04/07/2014

Scout fasted for 12 hours.

Bile Acids (pre) food: 2.2 YEA!

Bile Acids (post) food: 33.3 they are still high, but have gone down 25 points in 2 months...and his Pre numbers have gone down 11.2 points!

Scouts doctor consulted with one of the surgeons at Lakeshore Veterinary Specialist, and he said that Scout can go off of the K/D Diet in 1-2 weeks, and then be weaned onto a normal puppy/dog food. He should still be monitored for any neurological symptoms. But he has been feeling and acting just like Any other puppy who was Never ill!!!

Scout does have, I believe it's 6 deciduous teeth. Per his doctor, if and when Scout is sedated again, recommend retained teeth come out.

Just so the prospective adopter is aware of this. These can come out during his first dental cleaning.

Scout is house trained, kennel trained, knows sit, shake, down, no, come, walks very good on a leash...He loves to play fetch, and is very good at it, he loves All people, including children of every age, loves all dogs, does great with cats, didn't pay any attention to our parrot, he will go outside in Any Weather (just like the Mailman!), loves to be outside, and is great at the groomers.

The only problem, is trying to draw blood from him...he will struggle like nobody's business! So your vet needs a confident vet tech or lab tech to hold him. My vet has one that he will be good for. :-)

BUT... Best of All, besides being Cute, Smart, Silly, Spunky, Fearless, Feisty...

SCOUT Is So ABSOLUTELY SWEET & CUDDLY With EVERYONE!!!!
