Franklin
California
Franklin

Hello from the gorgeous Frankie, a 13 lb. male yorkie residing in Southern California.

Initial Bio. 09/14/16. Hi everyone!! This is Franklin (Frankie for short). He is a 13-pound Yorkshire Terrier who was rescued from the Carlsbad, CA. shelter after being found as a stray in Rancho Santa Fe, CA. The shelter estimates that he is roughly 10 years old, but you would never know it from his attitude. From the moment he was free, he has been jumping and bouncing around and playing with his new foster brothers. Given his frame, which is a little chubby, I will keep an eye on what he eats to keep him at a healthy weight. Before he can be adopted, Franklin will need a trip to the vet for a dental and then be neutered. He will also get a much needed trip to the doggie spa!!

Although I am not quiet ready for adoption, if you are interested in adopting me, you can follow the link below to complete the paperwork because I will be ready soon!


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

Gizmo
California
Gizmo CA (formerly Little Man)

Gizmo, formerly known as Little Man, is a 5.2 pound senior Yorkie being fostered in Fremont, CA. He is believed to be 10 years old.

THANK YOU TO GIZMO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

WoofTags, Carol Nelson, Donna Powell, Holly Lebed, Heather DeMelia, Sandra Wendt, Karie Fortin, Janice Kerrigan, Nazi Masoum, Patricia Gonzalez-Powell, Sarah Thompson, Dan Lara, Katrina Nelson, Brigitte Saylor, Sandra Wendt, Carol Nelson, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Phyllis Lewis, Connie Pfeiffer, Angie Cagle, Karry Rogers, Claudia Gonzalez, Carlyn Costa

Update Bio. 09/20/16. I am so relieved to let you know Gizmo did great in surgery today. 2 of his teeth were not loose and looked pretty good. Dr. Vanessa decided to leave these two. She was able to remove the other teeth without any complications. She was super careful and moved extra slow to prevent a jaw fracture. She had Dr. Clark helped her to make sure this critical little patient would do okay under anesthesia. He was also neutered while under anesthesia. Thank you for all your prayers for this little boy.

On my way to pick him up from the vet, I stopped by the post office. Gizmo received a prayer blanket from Global Comfort FAB (Fabulous Animal Blankets) in the mail. I would like to thank Monica Aaron Fink from Global Comfort FAB for making Gizmo's Prayer Blanket. He is currently cuddled up in it, sleeping.

Update Bio. 09/08/16. We went to the vet yesterday. Gizmo has a chronic ear infection. They cleaned out his ears, and I have to clean them every night before applying medication. He has a little hunched back which may be a little painful. We may try putting him on pain medication if his labs come back within normal limits.

He may be as old as 14 or 15.

His dental status Depending on the labs, a decision will be made regarding the next steps. Stay tuned for an update as test results come in.

If interested in Gizmo, you may apply for adoption by following the link below. However, no decisions will be made regarding adoption until a plan of care has been put into place for Gizmo.

Update bio. 09/07/16. Gizmo was just picked up from the shelter yesterday. He came in as a stray. A tiny little man at 5.2 pounds and estimated to be 10 years old. If he could talk, I think he would say this:

A very nice lady picked me up yesterday. I was so happy to be out of that place! She brought me home and gave me a wonderful bath. Boy, was it great to be clean again. I really worked up an appetite. I was very happy to see a big bowl of food, and I ate every single bite. I was so tired, I went right to sleep in my very soft bed and my new PJs. I think things are looking up for me.

As we learn more about this little man, we will provide updates. Right now, we are just so happy that he is safe, loved, and cherished. Although Gizmo is not ready for adoption until being neutered and having a dental, you may complete an application for adoption by following the link below.

9/7/16 Original bio: Gizmo was a stray boy in bad condition who was taken by Animal Control in Balwin Park, CA. He is a sweet little boy who will be neutered and have a dental before his adoption. Watch for further updates.

Juliet
California
Juliet

Juliet is a 9 year old, 5Ĺ pound Yorkie girl residing in La Mesa, California.

THANK YOU TO JULIET'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Irene and Peter Havas in memory of Buddy, Vanessa and Pepe, Paul Sherman, Crystal Shores, Nazi Masoum

Initial Bio. 09/07/16. Juliet is truly a miracle from God. She was found along side the road by an angel who thought she was dead. When the finder approached Juliet, she moved her head to see who was helping her. The kind lady brought her to the vet to get her pain medication and to see if she had a micro chip. Juliet's leg was severely broken and bone was protruding. As it turns out, Juliet required amputation of the leg because the damage was so severe, setting it wasn't an option. Since the lady who found her was not able to pay for expensive surgery, she took Juliet home. She did, however, pay $500 for that vet visit.

When the lady got home, she called 6 rescues and was turned away. Finally, Saving K9 Lives offered to network her since they were not able to take Juliet! Within a few hours, United Yorkie Rescue agreed to foster her. Finally, Juliet had some one to take her to the vet where she could have her amputation surgery at a reduced rate. Juliet had her surgery and was finally taken to her UYR foster home thanks to another great rescue organization who helped with the transport. Juliet is healing well and getting along nicely on 3 legs. She will need a lot of love and spoiling time which was something she probably didn't have before. We believe she was used as a breeder by some individual. She is getting along well with other dogs and a cat!!! She loves to he held and we've learned she enjoys turkey and blueberries.

Because of Juliet and the new relationship with Saving K9 Lives, 2 more Yorkies were saved this week. Juliet is a Miracle...she is our blessing from God. Stay tuned for more updates. If you are interested in adopting Juliet, click the link below to complete an adoption request.

Lulu
California
Lulu

Hello All: My name is Lulu. I am a 10 year old, 13.6 lb. Poodle being fostered with my brother, Toto in California.

THANK YOU TO LULU'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Teresa Beament, Aileen De La Rosa, Sandra Wendt, Connie Pfeiffer

Initial Bio 9/11/16: Hello, My name is Lulu. I am a 10 yr old female poodle. I weigh about 13.6 lbs. My story is a pretty sad one. Every time my foster momma talks about it, she cries. On 9/8, I was surrender to the shelter with my brother Toto. We had been together since we were puppies. He was my best friend. We entered the shelter together, but on 9/9, a lady came to take Toto. She didn't take me. I was all alone. My best friend was gone, and I was in a strange, loud place. I was also very sick. I haven't been feeling well for quite sometime and being at the shelter was only making it worse.

The night came and still no Toto. I thought they had only taken him away from me for a short time, but he was still gone. That night, I slept alone for the first time. The next day came and night came. I looked for him through my gate all day, but there was no sign of Toto. The next morning, I kept looking. My cough was getting worse, and I didn't have any strength. A person came to get me that afternoon. I was in no mood for a walk or to see the vet. I didn't go for a walk or to the vet, we went to a strange building. A lady was waiting there with a pink blanket, and she knew my name. She said she had come to pick me up, too. I was hoping that I was going to the same place that Toto went to. We got in the car and drove away from that place. She explained to me that I was going to see my brother, and that we would be together again. She started crying, saying that I was in really bad shape. Much worse than Toto and more than she imagined. She apologized for leaving me, saying that she didn't know, but that now I was safe.

I can hear Toto, now. He is in the next room! My foster momma says that we couldn't be together right away because I am so sick. She was looking out for the both of us. She promised that I would be able to see him once I was better. She promised me that I would help get better!

We both went to the vet, and I was in the car with him! Toto kept trying to get out of his carseat to get to the back of the car with me. That darn puppy seat!! Well, even though I still couldn't be next to him, at least we were both out of that cold, noisy place and we are TOGETHER.


To date we've spent $194.35 on Lulu's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $160.00 in donations.

Maxwell
California
Maxwell

Maxwell is a 10 year old, 5 pound Yorkie boy residing in Canyon Country, CA.

THANK YOU TO MAXWELL'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Karry Rogers, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Brigitte Saylor, Sandra Wendt, Brigitte Saylor, Tegwyn Neilson, Sandra Wendt, Kelly Marini, Elizabeth Giannone, Denise Garrett, Jane St. John, Judy and James Hufford, Debra Roby, Linda and David Rothrock, Joan Shelly, Gail Clemons, Kristin Vole, Shanon Fair, Treena Morgan, Paul Sherman, Mahmoud Loghman-Adham, Nancy Smith, Mary Cronin, Angela Heath, Mark Reed, Christine Flaherty, Lee Filer, Pascaline Golie, Marcia Lee

Update Bio. 09/24/26. Maxwell's fractures are healing nicely, and he is no longer on crate rest. He has gained a little weight and most importantly, muscle mass. He loves toys and will play with them all day. He is now looking for his forever home. Maxwell needs a quiet home with little to no people traffic since he gets very nervous around people he doesn't know. Someone who is retired or works out of the home would be a perfect match for Maxwell. His previous owner said that he needs to be the only pet in the house. My trainer and I think that he would be okay with another dog his size and age. He does show some alpha behavior towards the puppy in my house.

Maxwell needs to go to an adult only home due to his small size (5 and 1/2 pounds)and previous injuries.

Please fill out an application at uyr.us if you are interested in adopting Maxwell. He is listed under California.

Update Bio:08/24/16. I am so proud of this little guy. He is doing amazingly well, and we are adding a little more distance to his walk every day. He enjoys his walks side by side with Jar-Jar Binks. I usually carry him up the stairs after his walk since I can tell he does not really have the strength after the walk, but he can do it. Dr. Vanessa said that he really does not have any restrictions, but he should not jump up onto or off furniture.

Maxwell feels more and more at home and is turning into a little snuggle buddy. He loves to lay on the couch next to me. He was introduced to watermelon, banana, home cooked chicken with sweet potatoes, carrots, and green beens. He loves it all! He would not touch any fruits when I first got him and would move the watermelon onto his bed and leave it there. Now, he loves it and can't get enough.

He spins around in small circles when he gets exited and is such a joy to have around. His previous owner said that he had to be the only pet in the house, but he proved him wrong. He plays for hours with Roxy, who is 7 months old. She will grab a toy and run around the table with Maxi following close behind. We are having so much fun watching them play. Max and my 7 year old male pretty much ignore each other, while Max and my 7 year old female occasionally get into little arguments, which are easily supervised.

Update Bio: 07/21/16 Maxwell's fractures are healing nicely and he is no longer on crate rest. He has gained a little weight and most importantly muscle mass. He loves toys and will play with them all day. He is now looking for his forever home. Maxwell needs a quiet home with not much people traffic since he gets very nervous around people he doesn't know. A person who is retired or works out of the home would be a perfect match for Maxwell. His previous owner said that he needs to be the only pet in the house. My trainer and I think that he would be okay with another dog his size and age. He does show some alpha behavior towards the puppy in my house.

Maxwell needs to go to an adult only home due to his small size (5 and 1/2 pounds)and previous injuries.

Please fill out an application at uyr.us if you are interested in adopting Maxwell. He is listed under California.

Update 06/27/16: Maxwell is a 5 pound Yorkie being fostered in California. He was surrendered to Lancaster Shelter by his owner after he got hurt. Max is currently recovering from his surgery. He had a FHO on the right and got his staples out last Friday. He will have to go back for X-rays to see how the healing process is coming along in 2 weeks.

Other than wanting to get out of the crate to play with the other dogs, he is a happy little guy and will be ready for his forever home once he is healed.

Update 6/11/16: Great news on Maxi. All he needed done was a Femoral Head Osteotomy on the right hind leg. The surgeon did not want to touch the pelvic fractures since they are healing nicely on their own. There is a small chance he will need the same procedure on the other side in the future due to protecting the healing side when he walks. He is on crate rest and foster mom will try anything to prevent this. He was a very hungry little boy this morning and ate well. His prayer blanket arrived in the mail yesterday and is comforting him. Once he is all healed he will be ready for adoption. So if you are interested in adopting Maxwell I will start looking at applications.

Update 6/10/16: Maxwell needs your prayers today. He is undergoing his bi-lateral pelvic fracture repair which is an extensive surgery. Little Maxwell is a tiny boy so we hope all goes well for him during and after his procedure.

Update Bio 06/02/16: Maxwell is a 10 year old happy little boy who has had a rough life so far. He came to us with bilateral pelvic fractures and he will need extensive surgery to repair them. This surgery can only be done by an orthopedic specialist and the estimate for this complicated procedure is $4500.00. We are undertaking this expense because UYRís mission is to make sure Maxwell is given the chance to have a full, mobile and pain free life. His surgery is scheduled for June 10 and we desperately need donations to help pay for this procedure.

Your donation is tax deductible and Maxi, his Foster Mom and all UYR thank you.

Initial Bio 05/26/16: Hi everyone. My name is Maxwell. I was an owner surrender at Lancaster Shelter after I got hurt. I am an approximately 10 year old Yorkshire terrier. I was limping with one of my hind legs and didn't want to put any weight on it, so they took some X-rays and it turns out I have a pelvic fracture. Foster Mom will take me to the Dogtor tomorrow. We already know that I will need surgery, so I will not be available for adoption for a while. I am also very skinny and hopefully with some good nutrition and extra feedings I will put on some weight. My surgery will be very expensive so please consider making a donation to help me get well again.

I am a very active and sweet little boy.

We will give updates as soon as Foster Mom gets to know me better.

Munchkin
California
Munchkin

Munchkin is an 8 pound, 3 year old Yorkie mix boy who is being fostered in Long Beach, CA

THANK YOU TO MUNCHKIN'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Joy Ann Pack-Travis, Elba Short, Demetrio Amador, Enythe Green, Mimi Arandjelovic, Chantal Filson, Paulette Mahurin, Brigid Walters

Initial Bio 9/2/16: Hi everyone, My name is Munchkin. I weigh 8 pounds, which is probably a little on the thin side for me. I am a 3 year old Yorkie mix. The vet thinks that I might be yorkie/dachshund mix, which makes me cuter than normal, if I do say so myself.

Lately, I have been feeling under the weather and was rescued from the shelter yesterday by a nice lady who kept saying that I had kennel cough. Initially, I didn't trust her because I have been through a lot in my 3 years. But I am a softie and would never hurt anyone; So, with the help of treats, I let the nice lady pet me. Next thing I knew, I was getting a BATH! Later that day, after the bath, she took me to the vet! I knew I should not have trusted her! It is probably good that I did because I did have that cough thing she mentioned. The vet said to not worry though, because it's not too severe. With medication, I will be much better in a couple of weeks. In the mean time, I will be getting the much needed rest and relaxation I need to recuperate. Plus, the food here is so much better than the shelter! I eat it all up with no problems!

Once I am better, I will be heading back to the vet to get neutered. Whatever that is, it can't be any worse than that bath was. Feeling a bit tired again, so bye for now. Be on the lookout for more news in a couple of weeks.

Toto is an 11 year old Yorkie boy weighing only 5 pounds. He is being fostered in Long Beach, CA.

THANK YOU TO TOTO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Nicole Acosta, Amina Masic, Nazi Masoum, Lynne Turner, Nicole Acosta, Connie Pfeiffer

Update Bio. 9/11/16: "Wait what...Lulu is coming here foster momma? You are going to go get her??? She is coming here?!?!? OMG!! My sister Lulu. We are going to be reunited. I hear them coming through the door. They saved her too!!! Happy day happy day!" My foster momma told me that Lulu was really sick and we couldn't be together right away. She was looking out for the both of us. She promised me that I would be able to see her once she was better though. She promised me she would help get her better!

We both went to the vet and I was in the car with her. She looked so bad. All I wanted to do was be with her. I kept trying to get out of my seat to go to the back of the car where she was. That darn puppy seat!! Well even though I still couldn't be next to her, at least she wasn't in the shelter anymore. She was going to get help now, too. We were going to be TOGETHER!

Initial Bio 9/9/16: Hello, My name is Toto, originally known as Todo. I felt a new life needed a new name. so I am starting this new stage as Toto. hehe. Anyway, I am 11 years young, 5.3 lb, male super stud.

All jokes aside, I am feeling soo down. All though I was rescued by a nice lady yesterday and am starting anew, I am heartbroken to think of the life I have lived. Recently, I had to leave my sister and best friend Lulu at the shelter. She was brought into the shelter at the same time as I was and in extremely bad shape, like I am. She was unable to be adopted the day I was. She is still there and, it breaks my heart that we had to be separated. I pray she has the same luck as I and is rescued.

The rest of my life had been full of neglect and heartbreak, as well. My owner didn't care about us, never took care of us and then dropped us off at the shelter when we got older. I have spent my whole life as an outside dog, no matter what the weather...never allowed to go inside...never loved. It is so hard to eat and I am terribly underweight. I have only a hand full of teeth and those are rotten, so it hurts so much to eat. Thankfully, my foster momma has some yummy soft food. I will be seeing a vet for my teeth, so my cute tongue will hang out a lil more than it already does. Since I was always outside, I never learned to be potty trained, but my foster momma is working on that.

I am so loving and spunky for being a senior. My foster momma says I am such a good boy. I would be a wonderful lap dog as I am a cuddler and love being petted and snuggled. I get along with other dogs. I just want to spend the rest of my life relaxing in a forever home with my forever family. I still have time to find one and reverse the heartache with some unconditional love, just like I am willing to give. Will you be that for me, please?

Abby
Florida
Abby

Abby is a very sweet, 10 pound, 11-year-old adorable Shorkie, a Yorkie /Shih Tzu mix. Abby is a princess who needs one last forever home. Abby is being fostered in St. Augustine, FL.

UPDATED BIO 9-19-16: Abby has been in her foster home for a few days now. She is doing very well with all the other dogs that are there, and also Ty the cat. She is still a little confused about what has happened to her. She wants to know-- why am I here and not with my mommy, my home....... and what happened? Abby doesnít understand that her mommy passed away and wonít be coming back. It will take time for all of this to sink in. She would very much love someone to become her forever mommy again.

Abby seems to enjoy being able to go outside often, and she loves the fenced yard. She enjoys lying on the backyard deck sunning herself. Abby does have minor cataracts, but she sees just fine and has no trouble getting around. She is on some meds for her kidneys. No, she does NOT have kidney disease; just kidneys that need a little help to stay young and healthy. Remember she is 11 years old.

Abbyís last family took very good care of her. Her meds are cheap and two of the three are over-the-counter. Abby is a little stiff when she first gets up from her nap (like humans when we get older, haha!) and after a long nights' sleep. However, once she is up for a minute or two, she is just fine. A little glucosamine supplement will certainly help with this.

Abby likes to eat and loves her treats. She is a nice, calm dog who needs a new mommy. Could that be you? Donít let Abbyís age scare you, she has many good years left and all she asks is to be loved, cared for, and cuddled whenever possible.

Initial bio 9-16-16 Abby arrived at her foster home just yesterday and she is learning all about her new foster mom, dad, and foster fur siblings. Abby last mom died and Abby needs one last home to call her own. Although she is a senior she is in good health. She is on some very inexpensive over the counter preventives for her kidney health.

Abby gets along with other dogs. She walks nicely on a leash, does well in the car, and loves to be cuddled. Who could ask for more, but there is more. She is also house trained. It doesnít get better than that.

She has such a sweet disposition. She is very gentle and calm. Abby is up to date on her vaccinations, she is spayed, and heartworm negative. She will soon be ready for her forever home as soon as her foster parents get to know her a little better.

If you think you are the right one to give this sweet girl her final forever home please fill out an adoption application for her. She misses her mommy and would love to find another mommy who would make Abby her baby again.


To date we've spent $275.56 on Abby's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $150.00 in donations.

Angel - prior to grooming

Angel - after grooming - beautiful!
Florida
Angel

Angel is a 5-pound darling girl. She is 8 years old. This little Yorkie girl is being loved and cared for in Light House Point, FL.

THANK YOU TO ANGEL'S RESCUE ANGELS!!!

Linda Marcis, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Beverly Stevenson, Bonnie Vaupel, Teresa Beament, Angela Heath, Irene and Peter Havas in memory of Buddy, Vanessa and Pepe, Sarah Bartel, Irene and Peter Havas, Michael Catanzaro, Karry Rogers, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Maryanne Ware, Sandra Wendt, Judith Graham Burgess, Dianne Schultz

UPDATED BIO 9/8/16: Poor Angel can't catch a break. It wasn't bad enough that she landed in a shelter suffering from extreme neglect. She had severe arthritis in her hind legs, severe dental disease and skin infections. Shortly after her rescue she began having difficulty breathing and developed a terrible cough. Angel was rushed to the Vet where she had several nebulizer treatments over many days and was found to have pneumonia. But that's not all..... Angels appetite began waning and she developed a fever. She was found to have a severe infection of her uterus called Pyometra. This is a life-threatening condition in an unaltered female dog, requiring emergency surgery; and soon sweet Angel was on the operating table. We are relieved to say that the worse is now behind her, but all of this emergency care came at a high cost. Now Angel and UYR need your help paying for her medical bills. You always come through for us and we know this time will be no different. Please help us continue to provide Angel with the care she needs through your generous donations. No amount is too small. And thank you from the bottom of our hearts....and Angel's.

8-24-16 At last, sweet Angel is recovering from all her medical woes. She has endured so much suffering in the last couple of weeks: ear infections, dental disease, skin rashes, and worst of all a very bad case of pneumonia. Poor little girl. There was so much medication, daily nebulizer treatments, special food supplements, antibiotics, and other medication to make her better, all of which came with a large vet bill.

Angel has arthritis in her back legs, making it difficult for her to walk. I would like to thank a wonderful couple that lives in Canada, Mr. and Mrs. Havas. They sent Angel a special medication for her legs. This medication has helped her legs get stronger and her pain go away. They said they had great success with one of their Yorkies that had the same type of arthritis as Angel.

Angel also received a beautiful blanket from a wonderful organizationóthe Fur Angel Blessed Blanketeers. They sent her a beautiful blanket for her bed and some toys that she adores. With all this love and care, thankfully it helped Angel make it through the very worst of it.

Angel is going to be spayed and have her dental in about two weeks. Her foster parents are hopeful that after she is completely healthy and recovered, she will be ready for her forever home.

Angelís foster mom says that Angel is the most adorable and lovable dog in the world. She deserves love and care for the rest of her life. If you can find it in your heart to donate whatever you can to help us pay for the wonderful, but much needed care that Angel received, it would be very appreciated.

8/3/16 Updated bio--Hello everyone, It is me, Angel, the little 5 pound, 8 year old Yorkie. Well, It has been just a few days now that I am living with my foster parents and my fur siblings. I have already made myself comfortable, and I am starting to remember what it's like to be loved again.

I went to the dogtor yesterday for a complete check up. He said that I have arthritis in my back legs, an ear infection, and severe dental disease. I am also a little bit anemic because of some bad food and nutrition.

He gave me some medicine my foster mom said I have to take. They are antibiotics, pain control medicine, and some supplements to help my arthritis. The nice vet told us that day-by-day I would feel better.

Probably in 2 weeks I am going for my dental. I am almost toothless now and may loose the few teeth I have. But so what because my foster parents said I cannot be cuter with my tongue sort of sticking out. Anyway I found that teeth are overrated. I can eat everything just fine without them. Now I will never need a dental again, so woo hoo on that!!

Today I went to the beauty salon and they bathed me and gave me a nice hair cut. I am feeling so pretty now and I smell so good. I feel just like a princess and my foster mommy said I look like one too.

I can tell you that I could not be happier. I have some comfortable doggie beds to sleep in, delicious food to eat, and so much love. Please take a look at my before and after pictures. Don't you think am I a beautiful girl?

I am not ready for adoption just yet. I have to get a little stronger and get a little healthier and then I will be looking for my forever home. If you think you are the one for me and think I am worth waiting for (you know I am) you can fill out an adoption application. Please no little kids, they kind of scare me. Maybe a nice person who is home a lot and we can sit around together and just cuddle and love on each other. Wouldnít that be so great?

7/31/16 Angel is just that--A sweet little angel from heaven. She was rescued from the shelter today, and she will need a lot of love and even more care. She is underweight at just 5 pounds. It is easy to see that she is not feeling very well. She has severe periodontal disease and will need her mouth taken care of right away. She is showing lameness in her back legs and x-rays will need to be taken so that we know what is wrong with her legs and can get them fixed. Her back legs keep going out from under her. She is currently on pain meds to help her stay more comfortable.

There was no denying that she was so happy to be out of the shelter. Her foster mom gave her a bath to remove all the bad stuff that was stuck to her back end area. She was so hungry she gobbled up all the food her foster mom put down for her, and then she settled down for a little nap.

Angel will be taken to the vet tomorrow and we will know much more about what is going on with her. She will need blood work and x-rays. All that will be followed up with a dental and the care she needs to become a healthy little girl ready for her forever home. She will also get a nice grooming if the vet says it is okay for her to have one.

Once again we are asking our wonderful rescue angels to help this little Angel. There is no doubt her medical care is going to be expensive. Any little bit you can give to this Little Bit of a girl will be so appreciated. We will be grateful to you as always. We can rescue them, but we count on the help from our wonderful supporters to help us continue to save them and give these sweet little dogs the medical care so many need.


To date we've spent $1634.67 on Angel's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $870.00 in donations.

Annabelle
Florida
Annabelle

Little Annabelle is a sweet 10 year old senior Yorkie girl. She is only 7 pounds. Annabelle is being fostered in West Palm Beach, FL.

THANK YOU TO ANNABELLE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Karry Rogers, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Vicki Silver, Sandra Wendt, Vanessa Allan, Jayne Lanza, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Nestor Sanchez, Dianne Schultz, Julie and James Hufford, Stephen Toto, Tammy Adcock

UPDATED BIO 9/13/16: Annabelle is a sweet 10-year-old Yorkie being fostered in West Palm Beach, FL. She weighs a bit less than 7lbs, but since she really likes her food, she needs to keep an eye on her figure.

Annabelle was just at the vet last week and was under anesthesia for quite sometime while she had a number of procedures done, which included a spay and dental, a hernia repair, and the removal of several superficial tumors. She was in a lot of pain for a couple of days after and not happy about having a cone on her pretty head, but she is feeling much better.

Annabelle still has a couple of health issues that need to be addressed. Her liver values were a bit high, but we are hoping with a prescription diet and a daily pill called Denamarin and the dental, her values will come back normal when she is re-tested. She also has a prolapsed gland in her eye, more commonly known as cherry eye. This is very uncomfortable and will have to be corrected as soon as she is healed from her recent extensive surgeries. Annabelle saw the doggie eye doctor this past week, and it was recommended she have surgery on her eye to correct the cherry eye to keep it from getting worse and affecting her vision.

Many of the Yorkies we get from the shelters are older and are given up because they have expensive medical issues the owners simply cannot afford.....and we are sure this was the case with Annabelle. It was very apparent she had clearly been neglected health-wise. We want to address and correct all of Annabelle's health issues, and if she is medically cared for properly, she can live many more years. There is no question that she does need to be treated or her issues can become more severe.

Annabelle's expenses are going to run quite high; she has already racked up a vet bill of over $1,200 including her recent surgeries, as well as her initial vet visit, heartworm and flea medication. The surgery to fix her cherry eye will cost an additional $500. We estimate that all her care will cost United Yorkie Rescue close to $2,000. If you are able to donate to her vetting expenses, we would be very grateful. We hate to leave the older Yorkies at the shelters, as we are one of the few rescues that will save the seniors. Many of the other rescues simply don't have the means to help these little guys & gals. We know that if we don't take them, their chance of getting out of the shelter alive diminishes sharply, and we were not ready to let that happen to sweet, little Annabelle. This baby deserves to live out the rest of her years with love and care, something she didnít have before, but we can now give her.

Updated bio 9/8/16: Please keep Annabelle in your thoughts. She is going in today to have a dental, spay, tumor removal and hernia fixed, time allowing. This sweet gal, who had such a hard start in life, deserves to live comfortably in her golden years. Please help us by donating whatever you can to Annabelle's medical care.

Updated Bio 8/30/2016: Meet Annabelle! A local shelter contacted UYR after she came into the shelter. She originally had an adopter, but because she has an inguinal hernia and needs surgery, the adopter backed out; therefore, UYR came to her rescue.

Annabelle is a feisty little girl. As many people know, just because a Yorkie is 10, doesn't mean they are ready to roll over and go into a nursing home. She has so much life in her. She loves to chase toys and go on her walks. We initially had some issues with her and the other dogs in the house, but things have settled down. She gets along with the cats, but she is an alpha dog, and would do best in a house as an only dog or with a non-reactive, laid-back dog. She has also growled at the dogs at the vet, although she was fine with a couple of male dogs at the dog park. So she does need to watched around new dogs.

As far as we can tell, Annabelle is house trained. She did have a couple of accidents the first couple of days at her foster home, but that is normal for new dogs. Annabelle loves both her foster parents, but when she see her foster daddy, she always does a little happy dance for him (see video).

Annabelle has some health issues, which are now being taken care of. Her skin is dry, and it's been recommended she get medicated baths twice a week. She has also pulled some of her fur off her legs. We are not sure what it's due to - food/ environmental allergies, stress, or something else.

On September 8th Annabelle will be spayed and have her hernia repaired, as well as having 3 superficial tumors on her abdomen removed. Her teeth need to be cleaned, so she will also have a dental. She does have "cherry eye" and will be seeing an eye specialist. It's not a condition that is painful. She had blood work done and her thyroid tested. Her blood test did reveal that her liver values were somewhat higher than normal. For now, she is on a prescription low fat diet and a daily pill, Denamarin. She will need to be retested in about a month, and hopefully with her teeth cleaned, and food and medication therapy, her values will be back down to normal.

Annabelle would do best in a quiet home with children over 12 years old. Another calm dog would be okay too. She is fine with cats.

Please help UYR help Annabelle and take care of her medical issues. We are asking your help. Her adoption donation is not going to come anywhere close to the cost of her surgery and care. Please give what you can and help us pay for the high cost of the medical care that Annabelle needs.

Check out Annabelleís little Video. Go to-- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6I_bvxn8mwk

Initial bio 8-12-16 Meet Annabelle. Somehow this poor little girl found herself in the shelter with no home and no family. She needs surgery to remove a hernia. She also needs her dental and some vaccinations. All this will happen in the next few weeks.

Although Annabelle just arrived at her foster home, her foster mom already said she is a very sweet, good pup. She appears to be house trained and has done her business outside every time. She also walks very nicely on a leash and did just fine in the car on the trip from the shelter to her foster home. You could tell she was so happy to be out of the shelter. She appears to get along fine with her foster brother. And she sure loved the bath her foster mom gave her. Now she smells so much better and looks so pretty.

Please check back soon as we learn more about little Annabelle.

Bo Diddley
Florida
Bo Diddley

Bo Diddley has arrived! Heís an adorable Yorkie-Poo, estimated to be approximately 3 years old. Bo Diddley weighs 13 pounds. Bo Diddley is singing his tune in The Villages, FL.

UPDATED BIO 9/6/16: Hi Folks, it's me, Bo Diddley. I'm loving my new foster family, including Bubba (a little runt of a Yorkie with no teeth), Bogie (a scary African Grey Parrot, who keeps calling my name and asking me if I want to go out), and Birdie (a pretty little green and yellow Parakeet, who just sings and sings all day long). We all get along real good - and of course, there's Foster Mom and Foster Dad, who have just let me sleep in their big bed with them and Bubba :)

When I went to the dogtor, they weighed me in at a little over 13 pounds. They said my teeth and heart and everything were just great and all the blood tests and other tests came back with smiles, too. So, I got a clean bill of health. My only problem is that I just can't get the hang of doing my business outside instead of in the house. I have this silly band around my tummy so I don't wet anything but the belly-band. I really don't like that at all, so I guess I'd better pay closer attention to what Bubba does and how he always goes outside to do his business, or sometimes, when he does go in the house, it's always on a pad or newspaper in a special place. Foster Mom and Foster Dad and I are working really hard on this.

My foster mom explained to me that soon I would be going to a different family, but that would be the last move I ever have to make. She promised me that she would pick just the right home for me and that I'd be just as happy there as I am here. I'm not so sure about that, but I'll trust her judgment. If you think you are the right family for a great guy like me, please put in an adoption application and donít forget to put my name, Bo Diddley, on that application, because you know you want me.

Well, thatís about all for now. Bo Diddley signing off until next time. I hope the next time it is a Happy Tails story about me in my real true forever home.

Initial Bio 8/21/16 Bo Diddley or Bo D. was sadly surrendered to United Yorkie Rescue when his family realized that the hours he spent alone was not good for Bo D. and his happiness. His former owners had rescued him from his previous owner who kept him crated up to 18 hours a day. They realized that even with them his situation was not the right one for Bo D. He needed to have someone home to train him, to love him, and to spend time with him. So with great sadness they knew Bo had to become a United Yorkie Rescue Dog.

Bo Diddley is such a sweet, friendly dog. He loves kids and other dogs. He is excited to have the attention of his foster mom and dad who are home and ready to give him all the attention this young dog needs and wants. They will work with him on his house training and shower him with endless love and affection.

Bo D. will be visiting the vet this week to get current on his vaccinations and anything else he needs. After his vet visit we will know much more about Bo, including a better idea of his age and his weight.

Bo would be a great family dog for the right family. He is good with well-behaved children. He only asks that you do not crate him or leave him alone for long periods of time. Bo Diddley wants only to be with his family because they are the world to him.

More coming on Mr. Bo Diddley after his vet visit and when his foster parents get to know him better.

I've Been Adopted!

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

Diesel
Florida
Diesel

Diesel is an 8 year old, 10.5 pound Yorkie Boy residing in Clearwater, FL

Just look at how handsome this fella is! Would he be a perfect addition to YOUR HOME?

THANK YOU TO DIESEL'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Lisa Prosen, Jean Moffitt

UPDATED BIO 9/23/16: Diesel is an almost 9 year-old Yorkie boy. He is about 10.5 solid pounds of sweetness. Diesel is being fostered in Clearwater, Florida.

Unfortunately, Diesel lost his original human momma who sadly passed away too soon in the spring. During her life Diesel was very well cared for and loved when living with her. The remaining family was unable to keep him and asked us for help re-homing him. His name suits him well, as he is a confident little boy who is not easily intimidated.

Diesel has adjusted well to his new surroundings. He is very sweet and is quite affectionate. He is insistent on being the center of attention and follows his foster momma around constantly. Diesel is an energetic fellow who is very playful. His absolute favorite game is ďfetchĒ with his favorite toys. As long as you are willing to throw the toy he will retrieve it, bring it back to you, and be ready to do it again. Diesel is also content to just lounge about during the hot Florida days so he has his quiet, tranquil times too.

Diesel is mostly house-trained, but has occasional accidents if heís not taken out right after eating Ė especially in the morning, as he is an early riser. While somewhat social, he tends to prefer being the sole pet of the household where he can be the center of attention. He loves to be around people, but children do make him skittish. He is happiest when heís hanging out in the middle of whatever his foster parents are doing together.

Diesel has a condition called Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency or EPI. You can read about this condition here http://www.whole-dog-journal.com/issues/12_3/features/Exocrine-Pancreatic-Insuffinciency-in-Dogs_16109-1.htmlD His condition means that his pancreas does not make the enzymes necessary for food digestion. This is easily managed by a special diet and the addition of special enzyme power to his food twice a day. As long as he gets his enzymes added to his food there are no problems. However, he MUST get this in order for his body to digest his food. Without the enzymes, no matter what or how much Diesel eats it will be as if he was consuming nothing at all and he will rapidly lose weight and literally starve. He also takes a daily dose of Benadryl and a fish oil supplement at appropriate Yorkie-dosage levels to help reduce effects of minor seasonal allergies that cause him to lick his paws and furniture excessively. The cost of the medicine is less than $30 a month, but you would be getting such a great dog who would love you forever. Now that is priceless.

Diesel gets easily excited, especially when it is time to go outside. The vet told his foster parents to try to keep him from jumping because of the low grade luxating patella of his knee. It is not anything that requires surgery and an over-the-counter doggie tablet of glucosamine can help, but Diesel does not appear to be in any pain and it has not slowed him down at all. His foster parents have been training him to sit and patiently wait to go out or retrieve his treat and he is responding well to voice commands and hand signals. He is a very smart dog and a quick learner.

Diesel just had dental work done with 3 teeth extracted. His breath has improved considerably as a result of the procedure. Diesel is up to date on all his vaccinations. He is neutered and microchipped. Diesel is a very well-mannered dog who needs a special adopter who will be committed to his care and will be very diligent about adding his enzyme power to his food.

Diesel is such a great dog and his needs are so minor compared to all the love he will give back. He would be just the exact right dog for an active person or couple, or even a family with children over the age of 14. He loves to play, he loves to cuddle, he gives great kisses, and in almost every way he is a perfect dog for just the right person or people. Please give Diesel a chance, you wonít be sorry. Fill out an adoption application for him and get yourself a buddy and friend for years to come.

Diesel is mostly housetrained, though he has occasional accidents if heís not taken out right after eating Ė especially in the morning. Diesel is known to be an early riser and he lets you know that he has to go out. He is very social and usually gets along with other dogs (as long as they are well-behaved towards him). He loves to be around people as much as possible. Small children tend to make him somewhat skittish.

Diesel gets a daily dose of Benadryl and fish oil at appropriate Yorkie-dosage levels. The fish oil supplements his diet and the Benadryl has helped with his anxiety when he finds himself in new situations.

Without the enzymes no matter what or how much Diesel eats it will be as if he was consuming nothing at all and he will rapidly lose weight and literally starve. His enzymes cost only about $35 dollars for a month's supply (approximately $70 per bag which lasts a little more than 2 months). His prescription food is about $35 for a month's supply, but it is no more expensive than most high quality no grain dog food. Diesel is so well worth this little extra expense. For such a small price you get a priceless, amazing pup to love you forever.

Diesel is current on all his vaccinations. He does have a low-grade 2-3 luxating patella in his right hind knee. But this has not slowed this wonderful, happy boy down one bit, and it has not caused him any pain. Diesel will get a dental soon and then he will be ready for his forever home.

Diesel is a very well mannered dog who needs that special adopter who will be committed to his care and will be very diligent about adding his enzyme power to his prescription food

Please donít pass this wonderful fellow by just because he needs some special care. The enzyme powder is not very expensive and he takes is with no problem. Besides he is so worth it because this is one great, amazing little guy. Diesel would make a very wonderful companion and friend. Please consider giving Diesel his forever home. Fill out an adoption application for him today and remember that name, Diesel. You wonít be sorry.

Kaci

Kaci is a young, 2 year old sweet girl. She is a yorkie mix weighing 10 pounds. Kaci is being fostered in Bunnell, FL.

.

THANK YOU TO KACI'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Ilene Rand, Connie Peters, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Sandra Spencer, Mary Jane Sanders, Ellen Raab, Kerri Carubia, Sheila Coleman, Lee Filer, Peggy Brown, Marie Weidling, Judith Graham Burgess, Karry Rogers, Maria Chavez, Tammy Adcock, Carlyn Costa, Jean Moffitt, Sarah Davies, Nestor Sanchez, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Angie Cagle, Linda and David Rothrock

UPDATED BIO 9-17-16: Hi all, It's me - Kaci - with the update we've all been waiting for. Foster Mom took me to see that nice eye dogtor again. She ran a lot of tests. When she was done she came out and told Foster Mom and me that my retina was detached and that I would have to stay blind...I'm not sure what that blind thing is that everyone talks about. Foster Mom says that I don't know I'm blind because I get around just fine. A very special lady gave me a harness that says Blind Dog, but that's only so people can see ME.

I'm even hous- trained. I just need to be carried down the stairs, but I come right back up when I'm done. I like being outside. I also jump up on the couch to sit with Foster Mom. I also give really big hugs and lots of kisses. I also get to sleep with Foster Mommy, and I really like that. I like being here with Foster Mom and all my fur-sisters, we all get along great, but I would really like a forever home of my own.

Don't let this blind thing worry you. If you met me you would fall in love with me, I just know it. And really you would never know I was blind. Please come on, take a chance on a great dog like me. Youíll never find another dog, even ones with vision, who are as sweet and as loving and as well-behaved as I am. So fill out an adoption application for me, you will not be sorry.

Oh, and one more thing, my surgeries cost a lot of money, please consider donating to help us pay for them. That would get you a great big thanks from me for doing that.

Love and Kisses, Kaci

Updated bio 7-27-16 Hi everyone, my name is Kaci. The vet thinks I am only about 4 years old. I weigh a perfect 10 pounds. I'm a really cute little Yorkie mix. I'm being fostered in Bunnell, FL.

As you may have heard I had to have one eye removed. What a relief that was, because now I'm not in pain anymore. I canít really see out of my other eye because I have a bad cataract. Since after having my eye removed I have been spayed and had all my vaccinations. I am going to have another test on Sept 12th to see if they can fix my other eye so I can see again, but if they canít then you should know I get along fine. I can get up on the couch and go up stairs. I am still working on going down, that's kind of scary. I can always find my food bowl. I'm also house trained. Foster Mom says I will do what I need to do sometimes 2 or 3 times, but then I come right back in like a good girl. I love sitting on the couch with Foster Mom. I love my fur sisters and also the resident kitty. Truthfully I get along with everyone.

Please don't overlook me because I'm blind. It's okay, really it is. I can feel your love and I will always love you back. I'm a very good girl and would love to be part of your family. I like to sleep in Foster Momís bed as close to her as I can get. So stay tuned for the update after my next eye appointment. But please, always feel free to put in an application for me if you think I'm the one for you.

For now it's hugs and kisses from me to you. Kaci

Hi, this is Kaciís Foster Mom. Kaci is just about the sweetest little pup I have ever known. She is so good and so loving in spite of all she has been through and there is still more to come. A better more loving dog you couldnít find anywhere.

Kaciís medical care has been expensive and will continue to be expensive. If you can find it in your heart to help us help this very deserving girl, who has been through so much, it will be very greatly appreciated by United Yorkie Rescue and by sweet Kaci.

Update 6-29-16 Kaci had her eye surgery. The surgical vet removed the bulging eye. Kaci is feeling so much better. The surgeon explained that it felt like she had a 24/7 migraine all the time. Once she heals no one will ever know there is an eye missing. We are hoping to raise enough money to get Kaci cataract surgery so she can see through her one remaining eye. Without that surgery she will be blind. Please help this young, sweet girl.

Initial Bio 6-26-16 This little foxy looking girl has been though so much and has so much more still to go through. Kaci found herself in the shelter and no longer had a home to call her own. What is worse is that both her eyes have severe cataracts and she can't see. Her left eye is bulging out of its socket and needs to be surgically removed as soon as possible. Her right eye is cloudy and covered with a cataract. This is so unusual for a dog this young and we knew we had to help her and get her out of that shelter right away and get her eyes taken care of. We owed her a chance.

Kaci has only been in her foster home for a day, but her foster mom said a sweeter dog doesn't exist. She is pretty sure Kaci is blind because she is bumping into things. Her foster mom always lets her know when she is approaching her. Even though she's only been there a day we already know that Kaci is house trained and so loving and grateful for a warm home and a loving foster mom.

United Yorkie Rescue is determined to help this baby. She will be taken to the vet immediately for the surgery she must have to remove her left eye, and then we are going to do everything possible to raise money for the removal of the cataract in her remaining eye so she can see. She is so young and so deserving, and once again we are asking our angels to dig into their pockets and donate whatever they can to help this young little pup see again. She needs your help. She has already been let down and gone uncared for enough in her short life. Let's not allow that to happen again. Anything you can give to help us get Kaci her surgery will be so great appreciated by Kaci and by United Yorkie Rescue.

Thank you for caring about Kaci and for once again coming to our aide in helping this sweet, loving pup.


To date we've spent $1036.45 on Kaci's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1165.00 in donations.

Florida
Nemo

Say Hi to Nemo. Nemo is a little Yorkie boy who is approximately 6-7 years old, He is a bit underweight at 8.5 pounds. Nemo is being fostered in West Palm Beach, FL.

INITIAL BIO 09-16-2016: Nemo may be a little younger than we think. His teeth are in pretty good shape, and the vet ventured a guess that based on that, he is younger, so we are not exactly sure of his age at this time.

It's pretty clear at a glance that Nemo has been neglected for quite some time. He was turned in as a stray at a local high-kill shelter, and not only did his owner not come for him, but because of his appearance, he had no interest from the public, so the shelter turned to United Yorkie Rescue for help. Nemo has an advanced yeast infection of his skin, and is not only missing a lot of hair, but his skin is irritated and thickened in many places. We are hoping that with a medicated bath 3 times a week, as well as some anti-itching medication, a good diet and extra Omega 3's, his appearance will start to improve in the next several weeks; however, it might take several months for him to come into his full potential as the adorable dog he is.

Nemo seems to be house-trained, however, he is drinking a lot of water, and also urinating frequently, He is having a few accidents in the house, but his foster parents are letting him out often and that is helping. Since he is so new to his foster home some of this may be him just getting adjusted to another new situation. Update: The vet did a urinanalysis which showed that he does have a UTI. He is now on antibiotics for that. Frequently when dogs that were strays come from the shelter, it can take them several days to properly settle in. We are hoping all the water consumption and UTI are why he is drinking lots of water and urinating more frequently, since his blood tests showed that his liver and kidney functions are fine. No surprise either that his white blood cells were elevated, and at this point the vet thinks it is due to his overall poor condition and yeast & UTI infection.

Nemo has been in his foster home for a couple of days now with cats and other dogs. He is still not feeling his best, but he has shown no interest in the cats and gets along with the other dogs. He is very sweet and friendly with people he has met. He has, however, shown some signs of resource guarding over a bone, which is typical, so his foster parents are no longer giving him dog bones to chew on. They think he will be fine with other animals, but this could change once he is feeling better.

Nemoís foster parents are not sure when he will be ready for adoption, but hopefully his skin will be fully cleared up in the next 2 months or so. Nemo was a stray dog, and like many of the strays we get from the shelters, he thinks it's perfectly okay to run out the front door when it's opened. Nemo will be taught that it is not okay to run out any door and his foster parents are making sure he is contained when a door to the outside is opened. Right now Nemo would need a home with adults only or with children over the age of 14 who understand the importance of closing all doors and making sure Nemo is not near any opened door.

Here is a link to a video of Nemo after his bath.

Precious
Florida
Precious

Precious is an adorable, little truly precious 6 pound Yorkie girl. She is a 10-year-old who looks just like a puppy. We are hoping Preciousís kidney results come back normal. Precious is being cared for and fostered in Leesburg, FL.

THANK YOU TO PRECIOUS' RESCUE ANGELS!

Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Teresa Beament, Christine Dwyer, Teresa Beament, Ilene Rand, Dianne Schultz

UPDATED BIO 8-29-15: Precious is just so full of life and love. She loves people and other dogs, but mostly people. She is very attached to her people and sometimes wants all the attention for herself. She is the best eater and sleeps all night in her puppy pen, which she loves. It is her little sanctuary. Many nights she will put herself to bed in the doggie bed in her puppy pen. It is so cute to see. Precious is not totally house-trained, but if you take her out often her accidents are few and far between.

Precious has been in her foster home for 2 months now and there is possibly some good news. She had another blood test and her kidney levels, though still high, are coming down. The vet is cautiously optimistic. She is on the RX kidney food diet, which is low in protein and easier for her kidneys to process. Today she started on Adozyl. This is an over the counter capsule that many have said worked wonders for their dogs with kidney issues. In another month she will again have a blood test and if her kidney levels continue to go down we are hoping that Precious can be adopted.

If you are willing to see how the tests go in a month, and if she is adoptable, she would make a wonderful companion for anyone looking for a pup to give them love and kisses. If you are looking for a lap dog to cuddle with and pamper, she may be the one for you. She would much rather be an only dog than share the love and attention. More will be coming on Precious in a few weeks, check back and see how this amazing little girl is doing.

Updated Bio 7-31-16 Here is the latest on sweet little Precious. There is really not much new to tell about Preciousís medical condition. She was at the vet last week and nothing has changed, except her ears have cleared up, though her eyes are still gunky and needed more drops. She is eating great. She is now on an Rx kidney food diet. She continues to be active and dances around when she knows her meals are getting ready to be served to her. She also will run down the steps to go out to he backyard. However, her kidney values and urine are still showing signs of kidney disease and my vet still believes she is in the beginning states of renal failure. The vet even did an x-ray to rule out stones, crystals, and anything else going on in that area.

Preciousís vet is going to do another urinalysis and blood work in about three weeks to see if she is stable or if her levels have improved or gotten worse. Right now she is doing fine. The only sign her foster parents see of her having a kidney issue is not how much she drinks but sometimes how much urine she puts out at one time. It is a lot for a dog her size. That is a sign of possible kidney failure.

Precious will stay in her foster home until they know for sure one way or the other if she is adoptable or if she will live out the rest of her time as a Forever Ours United Yorkie Rescue dog.

Her foster parents wish they could tell you more or had only good news. But the good news is that she is not sick now, she is happy and active and enjoying her life. But kidney disease can hit hard and fast. If the time comes that she is not okay they will not let her suffer, but for now she is a happy, active, and sweet little girl. Hopefully she will be that way for a long time.

There will be more to come on Precious after her next set of tests at the end of August.

Update 7-9-16 Precious had her dental and blood work completed. There is still no conclusive, definitive answer as to whether or not she is in renal failure with kidney disease, but it is definitely not being ruled out at this time. Her kidney levels are high and there is real reason for concern. She will be on antibiotics for at least two more weeks. After that she will have another urinalysis and more blood work done to see if possibly it was the infection from her terrible mouth that caused the infection in her kidneys and not kidney disease. If she is in renal failure everything will be done to make her comfortable, and she will live out whatever the time she has left quietly and peacefully.

We will know more in another few weeks. Until then Precious is not ready to be adopted; however she can use whatever positive thoughts you can send her way. And as always United Yorkie Rescue can use your help with the cost of her veterinary care. Every little bit helps and Precious will be so grateful for your kindness.

Initial Bio 7-1-16 Pretty Precious is a tiny, little 4 pound 15 ounce little Yorkie girl. She is 10 years old but looks just like a puppy. Precious is being fostered in Leesburg, FL.

Precious is just like her name saysóso precious and so sweet. Her owners tearfully surrendered her because they could no longer care for her. Precious has already been to the vet and her news is good and maybe not so good. She is now up to date on her vaccinations. She is heartworm negative and appears to be in good health. She does have a urinary tract infection and a little infection in her ears. That is all being taken care of with proper medication. She also has a slight low-grade level two heart murmur, but the vet said her heart sounded good and strong. Her lungs are clear, her knees are good, and her eyes show no sign of cataracts.

Precious needs a dental badly. Her teeth are in pretty bad shape and she may lose a few when she gets her dental next week. She will also get a blood panel done because there is a possibility of a kidney issue. The blood panel will give us more information and until we know if there is a kidney problem, Precious wonít be available for adoption.

During the short time Precious has been in her foster home she has shown her foster mom and dad what a good, sweet girl she is. She sleeps all night in her crate in her doggy bed. She is eating well and appears to be doing her business outside, though her foster parents are not sure she is totally house trained. She seems to prefer the cement walkway to the grass to potty on, but that is okay. She gets along just fine with her foster fur siblings. She is still a little shy and just getting to know everyone and finding her way around her new environment. She enjoys being cuddled and held.

Precious is about as cute a pup as you will ever find. Keep her in your thoughts and heart as we find out if her kidneys will be a cause for concern. Little Precious will be loved and cared for no matter what we find.


To date we've spent $626.82 on Precious's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $299.26 in donations.

Rocky G

Rocky G is 11 years old, weighs 10 pounds and is being fostered in Miami, FL.

Rocky has turned out to be such a special boy...but he still needs donations to help continue to pay for his eye medication and his surgery.

THANK YOU TO ROCKY G'S RESCUE ANGELS!

UPDATED BIO" 8-25-16 Hi everyone! It's me again, Rocky G. I've had a busy summer. I spent a month in Indiana with my mom (I had surgery while I was there so that was no good) and then when we went back home to Miami we moved into a new house. I like my new house because there are no stairs and there are lots of soft things to lie on. My mom says she's happy, too, because she doesn't have to carry me down three flights of stairs anymore to take me outside. I definitely can't do stairs because I really canít see much of anything. I also have my very own yard now. I go out there and flip over on my back and roll in all the smells. Mom laughs at me, but it is awesome. I loveto smell stuff. I stop and smell everything on my walks and all over my yard. The world is full of smells and it's amazing! Hey, when you can't see so good, you gotta smell, right?

You guys probably want to hear about my surgery. Well, the hernia is all gone and my stitches healed up perfectly and I am feeling SO much better. And the new eye meds the last eye doc put me on are working pretty good. I don't see much better, but I'm not feeling like I have to scratch at my eyes all the time as much now. I'm also able to close my eyes a little on my own, which is new because they are not so dry. I'm still on like 4 different kinds of drops, but it's okay. I'm really a good dog, and I sit patiently a bunch of times a day while the drops go in.

Oh, I almost forgot to tell you, the doc who did my surgery took my blood and said that I have something called kidney failure, so they put me on a new food that was supposed to help, but man, did that food make me sick! I threw up all over my new house and I hit everything! My mom took me off that food right away and now I feel so much better. I am not sure what kidney failure means, but I feel healthy and Iím sure a happy guy.

Well, I gotta go. I spend most of the day sleeping and I gotta get back to that. Hope all your summers were great! And by the way, all those eye drops and my surgery sure did cost a lot of money. Maybe you can donate a little to me for all that because I am the boy who would be so worth it. You know Iím worth a couple of bucks, at least, and thanks for that.

Love you all, Rocky G.

Updated bio 7-29-16 Hi Everyone! Itís me, Rocky. Hope all your summers have been great!

Iíve had a bit of a rough go of it lately. The rescue sent me to a new doctor for my eyes and she wants to try a new medicine before we decide what to do about the surgery. Everyone is really hoping that Iíll be able to keep my sight (me especially). The new doc was nice and all, so that wasnít so bad, but what was NO fun was I had a hernia surgery done about a week ago, so Iíve been feeling yucky lately. The doctor said that my hernia was a really big one and very old so it was a toughie, but Iím a trooper, and I made it through just fine. Iím feeling better every day, too, but we have to be really careful of my stiches since it took so many to put me back together. My mom checks me all the time and she says I look a lot better. She says that I am in really good spirits, too, and now that sheís with me all day, all I want to do is lay on her lap. Iím most happy when we sit in the rocking chair and rock and rock (hey, maybe thatís how I got my name?). I just drape myself in her arms and drift off. Itís the best! Iíd stay there all day and night. I also love my sister now. When Momís out, we curl up together in the bed. Just so you know I am house trained and just about the greatest dog ever. Almost ever, because then there are these things called CATS!

My mom found out something else about me just the other day. I am not a fan of CATS! We were outside last week and this CAT! came up to me. I didnít know what it was at first, I donít see very well if you remember, but after I few seconds, I smelled that it was a CAT! and I nearly jumped out of my skin. Dogs are fine, Iíve met plenty of those, no problem, but, whew! CATS! are a totally different story.

Anyway, Iím feeling a little bit tired, especially after thinking about that CAT! so I gotta go for now. Iíll let you know how I am doing soon! And oh yeah, just a reminder I am still costing a lot of money because before I became a United Yorkie Rescue super star I wasnít taken care of very well and now I need all this medicine and surgeries. I am getting better and better, but if you could maybe help United Yorkie Rescue a little and give them some money for me, hey that would be about fantastic, because I am really worth it. Like I said I am a Super Star.

Love you all, Rocky

Update 6/11/16: Hi Everyone! Itís me again, Rocky! Well, itís been a rough go lately. I went to a doggie eye specialist and he tried a couple of not fun things. I wouldnít mind so much, but they didnít work very well because my eyes are still so damaged by so many years of neglect and abuse.

My vet is looking at other options to help my eyes. The vet said that someone cut off my third eyelid when I was a puppy so that I would look okay enough to be sold and this has made my problem much worse. Because no one took care of me for ten years, and my eyes hurt so much the whole time, I was constantly scratching at them and now they are really bad. The good news is the medicine and drops I am on, and there are 5 of them, are working pretty okay, so hopefully we can find something that will fix my eyes once and for all. I can sort of see now, but not too well and I really want to see because I havenít been able to see much for a long long time..

I am hoping that some nice people will be able to help with the cost.Whatever they decide about my eyes I know it probably will be really expensive. My foster mom says that some people have already been nice and have donated some money to help me, and I want to thank them from the bottom of my heart. I also want to thank the nice lady who sent me this awesome soft blanket you see in the picture, and for all the prayers she and her friends are giving for me.

Other than that, things are really good. My foster mom says that I am the sweetest little dog in the whole world. I just love to curl up on her lap, go on my walks, and hang out with my foster sister. I wasnít sure about people or other dogs before I got here, but now I just love everyone and everyone loves me! My foster mom is pretty sure I spent my whole life confined either in a cage or in someoneís backyard. I was full of dirt when she picked me up from the shelter. My eyes were so coated with junk that I couldnít close my eyes and I couldnít see anything, so I just walked around bumping into everything. Now, I can see a little bit and itís really great! I still sleep with my eyes open, but the vet says that when he fixes my tear duct he will also fix my eyelids so I can blink again. I guess I did a lot of damage to them when I was trying not to hurt all the time.

Anyway, thatís it for now! God bless everyone who has helped, and for all your prayers and best wishes. Please remember me and help me get done what is needed to make my eyes better. What ever you can donate would be so great. Iíve got lots of years left in me, lots and lots, and I would love to be able to finally be a seeing kind of dog .

Love, Rocky

Updated Bio 4/25/16 Hi everyone, It's me again, Rocky. Man, I gotta tell you guys that being a part of a family is seriously the BEST thing. I never gave much mind to people when I first got here and when someone tried to pet me, I flinched 'cause it was scary. I was used to keeping to myself, you know, but I gotta tell you, nice people are the best. I'm not pushy, but I love attention when I get it and I'm so happy to see my mom now that I wag my tail. I've also learned that curling up next to a person is SO nice, so if you pick me up and put me in a chair with you, I'll lay there peaceful and quiet as long as you want. I really like it when I get a nice scratch behind my ears, too, but I'm never pushy. If you don't have time, that's ok. I'm fine finding a nice soft spot to curl up on the floor. My foster mom says that I am so sweet and I thought that was funny. I'm not sure what there could possibly be to fuss about! I never bark, I never EVER potty on the floor and she says that's kind of unusual with us little guys. I still can't see all that well, but you'd never know it. My mom cleans my eyes out twice a day and puts my drops in and I sit there patiently until she's done. My eyesight isn't great, but I don't bump into anything because I memorize the room and I can see stuff if it's close enough. And the walks! Walks are the best! You'd never know I had bad eyesight watching me on my walks. Sometimes other dogs walk over and I like them, too. My mom says that I'm really smart and I'm the very best listener. A couple of times I put my paws up on the side of her bed because I thought she might like to go outside. Apparently, it was 2am, which must be code for she didn't and she said "Rocky, no," so I just shrugged my shoulders and went back to my bed and fell asleep. She didn't have to yell or tell me twice. I'm no dummy, after all, I understand what no means. Anyway, life is great and every day just keeps getting better. That's it for now!

Rocky

Updated bio 3-18-16 Rocky is a very special, 11 year old senior pup. He weighs 8 pounds. Rocky is being fostered in Miramar, FL.

Hi everyone! It's me, Rocky. Oh man, do I feel better! When I first got to my foster mom's house, I felt terrible. I couldn't walk without falling over. I couldn't see anything and all I wanted to do was lay on this new soft thing called a pillow. I wasn't sure about everything at first, my foster mom kept giving me these baths and making me take this yucky medicine and used this loud thing that took off all my matted hair. Well, it's one week later and I feel awesome! I'm not bumping into things anymore and I love, love, love, going on my walks. I don't even mind the leash now. I never ever go to the bathroom on the floor, even if it takes my foster mom longer to get home from work than usual.

After living outside that whole time, I appreciate a nice clean place. Hey, you gotta have standards, right? I almost forgot to tell you about my teeth. It's kind of weird not having them anymore, but it hurts so much less now and the vet says that those teeth were infected and making me sick. My foster mom told me not to worry about not having them, my foster sister doesn't have any teeth either, and she eats just fine and is cute as a button. Our mom says that she'll save a lot of money on teeth cleanings, too, whatever that means. Anyway, if you're looking for a dog that is cool and chill and just happy to hang out, we should talk.

Initial bio 3-8-16 The first thing Rocky's foster mom thought when she rescued him from the animal shelter was that he was the saddest, most pathetic looking dog she had ever seen. His coat was serenely matted, his nails were long and overgrown, he was dirty and smelled pretty bad. He has periodontal disease and he will need a dental right away., so his breath was awful. But the worst was his eyes. He may be blind or blind in one eye. He has severe dry eye and the infection from his mouth is not helping the infection in his eyes.

Rocky has been at the vet clinic since yesterday getting cared for. He lost all his teeth during the dental.They just fell out in the vet's hand they were so rotted away. The vet removed some gunk from his eyes and will try to get more off later. It may be possible that he can see shadows. His eye pressure is lower than it should be so he will need eye drops to correct that. Rocky is spending his second night at the vet clinic and will come home to his foster home tomorrow. He will be bathed and groomed and now that his teeth are fixed and his eyes cared for he will be beautiful and smell wonderful.

The time Rocky did spend with his foster mom, she said he was the sweetest dog and just wanted to be loved. He seems very good natured and wants to please. We are not sure about much else with Rocky. We will know a lot more after his stay at the vet and he is recovering in his foster home.

This sweet boy will make a great pet for a senior couple or individual who wants a wonderful dog to love and cuddle with. Please help us with Rocky G and donate to his care.

Smokey

Smokey

Smokey is an adorable little 7.5 year-old yorkie boy. He is only 6 pounds of sweetness. Smokey is being fostered in The Villages, FL.

THANK YOU TO SMOKEY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Meighan Hornady, Dianne Schultz

UPDATED 8-29-16: Smokey has been in his foster home for a month now, and has settled in. His foster parent has learned that Smokey loves short walks and long naps.

Smokey needs a forever home where he is not left alone for more than a few hours at a time. He needs to go outside every couple of hours so he doesn't have an accident in the house. Smokey is very smart and will sit and do a few tricks. He has a wonderful disposition, but would prefer not to be in a crate. Smokey loves laps and being stroked and cuddled.

Smokey is a very sweet Yorkie. He had his dental and he now has beautiful teeth. He is up to date on all his vaccinations and has been neutered and microchipped. Smokey is ready for his forever home. He would be a wonderful fellow for someone wanting a sweet, loving pup to cuddle and kiss.

Please fill out an adoption application for this wonderful boy. You won't be sorry.

Initial Bio 7-25-16 Smokey just arrived at his foster home and is settling in. Smokey's former mom had to sadly give up Smokey because she was no longer able to care for him due to her ongoing health issues. His former mom was unable to see very well and was having trouble walking so Smokey didn't get a chance to go out very much and his house training went backwards. He needs to begin again to learn to do his business outside and not in the house. His foster parents are going to be working very hard with Smokey on this. For now Smokey is wearing a very stylish Bellyband while he is in the house.

Other than that one little itty-bitty thing, Smokey is a great dog. He loves to cuddle and be with his people. He is such a good boy and wants to be loved and give love to everyone. He gets along fine with other dogs. Smokeyís ideal home would be with someone who is home a lot so they can continue to work on his house training.

Smokey's foster parents are just getting to know him and want you to know that as soon as they get to know Smokey better they will share more about him. Stay tuned.


To date we've spent $238.27 on Smokey's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $150.00 in donations.

He is just ​the best​ big boy​ you will ever want to meet. Yes, he is a little on the bigger size @ 18 pounds of pure sweetness. ​Sparky is a young dog who is house-trained, loves to go for walks, and is a great eater and car rider.

His ideal home would be one that has another young dog and ​a fenced backyard.​ he would also do great with some kids over the age of 8 to run around and play with him. This sweet fella would be the best dog anyone could ever want to have. He is perfect in every way. Please give Sparky a chance. You will not be sorry. His foster mom and dad said a more perfect pup they have never met, ever.

If you have ​any questions p​lea​se contact yorkieluv681@gmail.com

Updated bio 8/18/16 Mr. Sparky just continues to amaze his foster mom and dad everyday with just how sweet he is. He is totally potty trained. He has no health issues. He enjoys going for walks or just sitting on your lap.

Sparky is great with pups of all sizes and cats as well! He loves to play, play, play, until he gets exhausted and then just plots right down. He couldnít be any cuter if he tried

Sparky has been to the vet and is up to date on all his vaccinations and has been microchipped. He is now waiting for his forever family. Heís ready to go and he will be the dog you always wanted. He is so well behaved and so sweet. In fact he is the perfect dog for a family to love and cherish. And just think of the love he will give back.

Sparky would do great in a home with another pup and also children over 10 years old. This boy is ready for fun and adventure with the family of his dreams.

If you have a great furever home for Sparky, please contact his foster mom at yorkieluv681@gmail.com, or fill out an adoption application for Sparky-- the world's best dog.

Updated bio 7-20-16 Sparky is a healthy 1-year-old puppy. He is a big boy at 18 pounds. Sparky is a Yorkie mix.

Sparky is such a sweet, gentle pup. Even at the young age of a year old he is an amazing dog. He has no issues that need to be worked on. He is house trained and leash trained. He does great in the car and he loves people so much. He is so happy to just be able to sit on your lap, be cuddled, and give his people lots of kisses.

Sparky gets along great with other dogs of all sizes. He even likes cats. He is a young dog so an active home life with another pup for him to play with would be ideal. He would also do great in a home with children over the age of 9. A fenced yard would be nice, but trips to a doggie park and lots of walks would be fine too because he likes to be playful and run around.

Sparky would be a great family dog and because he is a bigger size he would be perfect for a family with children who are old enough to play and run around with him.

If you think you are the right family for Sparky and would love a perfect, well-behaved dog, please fill out an adoption application for him. You wonít be sorry.

Updated bio 6-20-16 Sparky is a healthy 1-year-old puppy. He is a big boy at 18 pounds. Sparky is a Yorkie mix, being fostered in North Port, FL.

Sparkyís foster mom is so thrilled to report that Sparky did great at the vet. He is a healthy, happy, just about perfect boy. He is house trained and very playful. He just loves playing with the other dogs in the home.

Sparky loves to give his foster dad hugs and love!! He Just jumps on him and places the upper part of his body by his foster dadís neck and stays there. Then Sparky gives him kisses and more kisses!! What a sweetie.

Sparky would do best in an active home with another young pup and a fenced in backyard. Please no children under the age of 10.

Initial Bio 6/15/16 Sparky is a very young, sweet, happy puppy. He is most likely a beautiful Chorkie (Yorkie/Chihuahua mix) He was so happy to be rescued from the shelter today he was jumping for joy. He had been sitting in the shelter a long time waiting for someone to come rescue him and United Yorkie Rescue did. He is settling into his foster home, but has already made good friends with his foster brothers and sisters.

Sparky is a bigger fellow who weighs 18 pounds. He would probably do well in a home with children over the age of 8. There will be so much more to tell you about spunky Sparky once his foster parents get to know him better. Stay tuned.

UPDATED BIO 09-16-2016: Little Walter was returned to his UYR foster home today. He was just not the right dog for the adopters. This happens sometimes, though it is not the fault of the adopters or the dog and the best thing for the pup is to come back to United Yorkie Rescue. Walter will be ready for adoption again shortly. He will need a little more vetting and then he will be ready for what has to be his new and final forever home. This sweet boy needs a tranquil, calm life. He is not one to play much. He likes to spend a lot of the day sleeping and resting. He enjoys the quiet peaceful life, but will enjoy a walk outside if it is not too long.

Walter is happy to be back in his foster home, but he longs for his own forever home with his forever family. No children for Walter, please. Only a home with adults.

Updated bio 8/25/16 Hi, this is Walter. I have been very busy since I arrived at my foster home with my Foster Mom. I have had been to the vets several times, had my remaining teeth taken out, and most recently I was groomed. I feel so much better and look very handsome. I do my business outside unless my Foster Mom does not take me out often enough.

I like to go for walks with my fur brothers, but prefer riding in the stroller while they do all the walking. I also enjoy riding in the car. I curl up in my car seat and usually take a nap. I am a very quiet little boy. My favorite activities include eating, sleeping, stroller rides, and car rides. I also like to be held for short periods of time. However, when I have had enough I will try to jump out of your arms. My bed is my castle.

I do not go up on the furniture because I am afraid of jumping or falling since I am so tiny. I would prefer to be an only dog so I can have all the attention. If you are looking for a quiet little guy like me, please contact my Foster Mom. I am looking forward to joining my forever family.

Initial bio 8-7-16 Walter may look like a little stuffed toy, but he is a real live sweet, adorable pup. He is only 4.1 pounds and just about the sweetest little guy ever. His mom had to give him up because she is a young student and was not able to keep him or care for him. He was great in the long car ride, in the doggie car seat, to his foster home. His foster mommy has already said what a good boy he is. Once he got to his foster home he got a much needed bath and comb out. Walter was great in the bath, but didn't totally enjoy the brushing because he was pretty matted. Walter went for a walk and did his business outside like he is supposed to. He walked nicely next to his foster mom and his fur brothers. He likes to be in the doggie bed and took over his fur brother's bed even though he had his very own. He must have thought it is much nicer to take someone else's bed. Walter is a good eater and even with only 3 teeth he does great with his food. Walter had a busy first day, but has started to settle in.

Walter will need to see the vet very soon. He needs a well doggie check-up all his vaccinations and a professional grooming. After Walter's visit to the vet we will know much more about him and his health needs if any. Walter is a very small dog therefore a home with no children would be preferable or children over the age of 14 years old. He would love to have a stay at home person to care for him. At one point in Walter's life, before his former owner took him in, he was left alone for several weeks with only someone coming in to give him food and water, so the company of his person much of the day would be just what Walter needs.

There will be more coming on Walter after his vet appointment and his grooming. Stay tuned....

Blondie
Georgia
Blondie

Blondie is a 3 year old, 8 pound little girl being fostered in Athens, GA

INITIAL BIO 8/18/16: Meet Blondie! She is a rare pure blond Yorkie who is a young 3 years old. She weighs 8 pounds and is being fostered in Athens GA.

Blondie was surrendered when her owners lost their home and were unable to keep her. Blondie is nervous and shy around new people and new places, but once she knows and loves a human she loves them forever. Blondie needs to be the only dog in her forever home because she is not a fan of sharing her person with other dogs. She isn't a fan of riding in the car, but she can go short distances without any trouble. She is doing great with her house-training skills, but it seems that she was pee-pee-pad trained at her previous home. We are trying to break her of that habit, but it is confusing to a dog. She likes to play with toys and loves chewing on her bone. Her favorite place to be is right beside her human and she loves getting petted and giving kisses.

Blondie needs a home where she is an "only child" with an owner who can love away her shyness and fear of new people and things. In return you will receive a lifetime of love and devotion from her!

Jack
Georgia
Jack

Jack is an adorable Yorkie boy. He is 8.5 years old and only 6.5 pounds. This sweetie is being fostered in Suwannee, GA.

INITIAL BIO 8/25/16: Little Jack is such a cute little fellow. He really is a good boy. He is house-trained, loves car rides, and he loves to eat. What Jack doesnít like is to be crated - and babies. All was well in Jackís world until that darn baby came along and started to crawl and chase him all over the house. There was no escaping from the baby, so he did what dogs do, and he snapped at her. And if that wasnít enough, another baby is coming in a month.

Sadly Jackís owners had to do the right thing for Jack and for their very young family, so Jack became a United Yorkie Rescue foster dog. Jack is now so happy in his foster home. There are no babies and he has a nice foster sister to play with and two really nice foster parents.

Jack will only need to be updated on his vaccinations and maybe have a dental, and then he will be ready for his forever home. Although his foster parents are just starting to get to know him, they know he would be a great dog for someone who likes to take long walks and live an active lifestyle, but no young kids ever for Jack in his forever home.

Jack needs an active home...he used to go on four mile runs with his former daddy. He would run until he just couldn't and then his daddy would pick him up and carry him home. Jack likes long, fast-paced walks with breaks for leaving his mark and reading the marks from other dogs on tress and posts. He is not getting his run in anymore and he misses it.

If you think this cutie is the boy for you, please fill out an adoption application for him.

Buddy
Illinois
Buddy

Meet Buddy. A sweet, quiet boy who is 12 years old, weighs about 11 pounds, and is residing in Canton, Illinois.

THANK YOU TO BUDDY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Heather Warwin

Update Bio. 09/22/16. Buddy is 12 years 8 months old. He weighs 13 pounds. He is neutered & had a dental. He does have a heart murmur, but does not require medication. He is a sweet boy, but does not like to be fussed with. I think he would be best suited for an all adult home. A fenced yard would be good. He really doesn't walk on a leash well. He enjoys a slow pace just wandering around the yard. If Buddy sounds like the man for you, follow the link below to complete an application.

Update Bio. 08/18/16. Buddy is 12 years old and weighs 12.5 lbs. Buddy had his dental this week and 3 teeth had to be pulled. He also had about 12 small growths removed from his body. He looks like a raggedy, patchwork puppy because he has little squares of fur shaved off & stitches in each area where the growths were removed. Buddy is a quiet, house trained boy. He does love his treats & and food, siting up & begging while you eat. I think maybe he was fed treats from the dinner table. If you could use a couch potato, Buddy might be your boy!!

Initial Bio: 08/01/16. Buddy is a very sweet, quiet boy. His owner has cancer and could no longer care for him, so he was surrendered to UYR. So far, I know he likes people and other dogs. He loves to eat!! He had been in boarding for 10 days, so he was probably hungry when he came to us. He ate his chicken & veggies quickly, and then cleaned up scraps the other pups didn't eat. He would make a good couch buddy. He will be going to the vet this week for a check up. Will update his progress soon.


To date we've spent $1356.85 on Buddy's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $26.00 in donations.

Oliver IL
Illinois
Oliver

Oliver is a Yorkie mix 9 years old and 17 pounds residing in Shiloh, IL

Oliver is in desperate need of financial help and all your good thoughts to meet his medical needs including Heartworm Disease!

THANK YOU TO OLIVER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Holly Stavis, Kathryn Fore, Sheila Landis in memory of Miss Chickie Dog, Anne Faasse, Anne Faasse

9/19/16 - Oliver is still doing great in his foster home and was recently peremptorily tested again for heartworms. He tested very faintly positive, but the vet said this is not uncommon for dogs that has previously been as strong positive as Oliver was. The vet recommends waiting until t 6 months after his completed treatment (which would be the beginning of December) and retesting again. We are hoping by then all the former signs of the heartworms in Oliver's system will be completely gone. Until then, he will simply stay on Heartworm preventative monthly, and we will keep hoping for a loving home he can retire in. He may be considered a "senior", but he is actually quite active, especially when taken on walks and out in the yard with other dogs. Inside the house, he prefers to be much more lazy and sleeps most of the time, except when ambling around to follow you from room to room. We are accepting applications on Oliver now, and would consider letting him go to a home with a great vet reference. Please do not hesitate to contact his foster mom with any questions.

Update 8/18/16: Oliver continues to do well since his heartworm treatments. He has been happy and looking forward to his recheck appointment in September to verify that his heartworm disease has been cured. Watch for more on Oliver in September.

Update Bio: 7/5/16 Ė Itís Oliver again, and I hope everyone had a happy 4th of July! I barked at all the fireworks I could hear, which was not as much fun for everyone else in the house, but was great fun for me!! It is good that Iím not afraid of loud noises though. So Iíve been doing really well since I had my heartworm treatment. Iím feeling great, and much more active now. In fact, itís kind of hard for foster mom to get good pictures of me because my butt is always wiggling and moving! But I recently got a new haircut since itís so hot out. I look very dapper, so she wanted to put up some new pictures of me happy and smiling now that Iím feeling better. That missing patch of hair you see on my back is where I had to be shaved for my heartworm injections but donít worry, it will grow back. Foster mom says Iím still super handsome! Based on my current health situation, we are pretty sure the heartworms are all gone, but I will need a test in September to confirm that. Itís not a very expensive test, but we will need to be sure my adopters are willing to getting this test. Itís a very important test, as is keeping me on heartworm preventative. I never want to go through that awful treatment again! I am very sweet, love to snuggle, enjoy walks and being a couch potato. I would really love a furever home of my own. Please fill out an application to adopt me, or contact my foster mom with any questions you might have, and she will respond asap! Thanks for visiting! Love, Oliver

Update Bio 6/4/16: Oliver here, just wanting to update everyone on how I'm doing. I just had my 2nd and 3rd shots to kill the nasty heartworms I had. It was really hard going through this treatment and I don't ever want to do it again! The heartworms are still dying off so I'm can't go to a new home just yet. I'm in recovery and will have to be re-tested to make sure they all die, but I wanted everyone to know that I'm doing ok and the vet and my foster mom are taking great care of me. To remind everyone, I am totally house trained and crate trained, although I have spent enough time in my crate during this treatment and really don't want to be in there anymore. I have limited vision, but I get around really well and learn my surroundings quickly. I do have some arthritis but I can do a couple of stairs up and down into the yard or patio. I wouldn't be able to do them up and down in a second story house though. I'm pretty chill and since I'm older I just need a place where I can hang out, wander around the yard and house, and sleep. I am up to date on all my shots, medications, and also neutered. If you would like to give me a loving home when my treatment is complete, please fill out an application or contact my foster mom at her email below if you have any questions. She'd be more than happy to talk to you about the process and my treatment!

Initial Bio 5/16/16: Hi everyone! My name is Oliver and I am being fostered in Shiloh, IL. I'm a Yorkie mix, estimated to be about 9 years old. I weigh 17 lbs., and I could stand to lose a little weight. I am a very lucky boy because I was in a shelter for 2 months, in a rural farming community, when UYR pulled me because they heard I had medical issues. It turns out I'm heartworm positive and never received medical treatment for my condition, which is very serious! I had a severe case of kennel cough, which went away after being treated with antibiotics, although I still have a slight cough from the heartworms. I also have compromised eye sight (cataracts) and arthritis, which makes it difficult for me to climb stairs. I know my situation sounds sad, but I'm very happy to be in a loving foster home and away from my old life. My foster mom says I'm a sweet boy and a tough cookie. There are only a few instances when I get to take a break from my crate: one is when I get to go outside to potty. Foster mom puts me on a leash and we walk to the end of the driveway and back. The other time is when she carries me up the stairs and I lay in her crafting room while she works. Sometimes I bump into things, but I am learning how to navigate my new surroundings, so this scenario is only on rare occasions. My favorite times are when foster mom gives me scratches while I lay in my crate. Also, I do not mind children or other dogs, but cats are another story! My most pressing issue is that I am heartworm positive, which has quite the recovery process. At first I was on pills, also known as the slow-kill method. After several months of this treatment, an ultrasound revealed that it was not effective and the worms were "alive and kicking". I went to see a new vet, who just completed a thesis on heartworm, so I am in really good hands. He began a new treatment that requires injections. I had my first one last week and I will receive the next 2 injections next month. This could be a long process and I cannot be adopted until the vet gives me the green light, but if you would like to apply in advance to be considered to adopt me, please fill out an application on our website www.uyr.us. Also, my treatment is very expensive, so please consider donating to my vet care and stayed tuned for progress updates! Love, Oliver

Yogi
Illinois
Yogi

Meet Yogi. A six year old, little neutered male Yorkie, residing in Beach Park, IL.

Update Bio. 09/18/16. Hi everyone, Yogi here! I've been with my foster mom for two weeks, now. I'm a very happy little guy and get along great with my fur sisters. I'm looking for my forever home, which needs to have a fenced yard and no small children.

Mom had to switch my food bowl that I brought along with me. The girls have bigger bowls than I do, so I didn't want to eat out of my little bowl any longer. I actually like the biggest bowl. Mom says she puts the same amount of food in all of them, but I still like the biggest one. If I need your undivided attention, I'll whine and bark until I get it. Mom says I might be a little bit spoiled, and she is teaching me to have better manners.

I nap in my little doggie bed through the day, sometimes. Mom got me my own little boy blanket for my bed so I don't have to use the pink ones the girls have. However, at night I want to sleep in the big bed with mom and dad, as my former mom always let me sleep on bed. Mom and dad have to watch the doors so I don't bolt out. They mostly go through the garage so I can sit on the back of the sofa and watch them through the window as they leave. I like to go for walks with the harness and leash on.

I still need my microchip but all my vaccinations are up to date. I am healthy with no problems that anyone is aware of. I'm looking for a home where I can be loved and cared for. I'll reward you with lots of doggie kisses! I still have an accident or two in the house once in a while, but if you take me out I'll do my business outdoors most of the time. If you think youare the right family for me, follow the link below to the application. Hugs! Yogi .

Initial Bio. 09/09/16. Hi everyone. Iím Yogi, and Iím looking for a new furever home. Iím a six year old, little neutered male Yorkie. I am living with my foster mom in Beach Park, IL right now.

There are three Yorkie girls in the house that I get along with very well. Weíre not sure about cats because Iím not really sure what cats are. Sometimes, I get greedy and want to eat out of the girlsí food bowls, so foster mom separates us at eating time. Foster mom says I am a little overweight and could probably lose a pound or so. Iím a very tiny little guy but I weigh 7 pounds and probably shouldnít weigh more than 5 to 5 1/2 pounds.

Iím a very lovable little guy. When we sit on the sofa, I like to sit up on the back so I can see everything. Iíve been known to be a ďDoor Bolter,Ē so youíll have to keep a close watch on me when you open the door or I might take off. I love to go for walks with my harness and leash on.

I am not fully house trained. Although I will do my business outdoors, I donít let you know when I need to go out. So, weíve had a few little accidents. I do not lift my leg or mark anything. Iím a great little stair climber, even though I have short little legs.

Since Iím new to the family, weíre still finding out things so foster mom says she will update my profile frequently, as my adorable personality and charm become more defined. She says I definitely have cuteness and huggabilty overload! Please go to unitedyorkierescue.org and look for me, Yogi. I promise to love you furever!

Charlie
Iowa
Charlie

Charlie is a beautiful 3 year old, 11 pound Yorkie being fostered in Urbandale, IA.

THANK YOU TO CHARLIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Mary Mays-Delamater, Nancy Stanley, Carol Nelson

Update Bio. 09/06/16. Charlie does really well with children who like to throw balls and play. However ,Charlie does not enjoy sharing attention with other dogs. He loves to cuddle, and have his belly rubbed. He needs to be gently introduced to new adults who enter his home, he tends to be very protective of his family. Charlie is a wonderful companion for the right family. If Charlie sounds like the boy for you, follow the link below to complete an application.

Update Bio. 08/31/16. Hello everyone! I am doing really well with my foster mom and family. I have learned not to react in naughty ways when someone new comes to visit. My foster mom is the boss, I like knowing I don't have to be in charge. I am still looking for my furever family. If you think I am the right dog for you, please follow the link to complete an application for adoption.

Sincerely, Charlie

Update Bio: 07/30/16. Charlie is doing well. He is very smart. When he gets his forever family, he will make them very happy. He needs to be placed within 10 miles of where he is being fostered ( Urbandale, IA) so I can help him adjust and be available to continue with any training.

Update Bio: 07/06/16. Charlie is doing well in his foster home. He did have a set back when he heard fireworks going off in the neighborhood during the week leading up to the 4th of July. Thunderstorms frighten him as well. But I know he will be able to overcome the aggressive behavior he reverts back to during these events. At this time he is not ready to be adopted. I look forward to getting him ready to join a forever family. When he isn't under stress, he is very loving and playful.

Sincerely, Susan Foster Mom

Update 06/05/16: Hello my name is Charlie, but my close friends call me Chuck sometimes. I'm 3 years old and I was rescued in California. After hanging out in sunny San Francisco, I was flown to Iowa so my foster mom could help me figure out what kind of family would suite me the best.

I LOVE children, but they have to let me get used to them before I'll feel safe. I get very stressed when strangers come over. My foster mom has a lot of people coming and going, and she's trying to get me over my fears. A quiet home would be perfect for me.

Love, Charlie

I'm fostering Chuck, and he is the most loving boy once he gets to know people. I leash him when new people come over to keep him from biting. He is fearful of men the most until he knows they are safe. I am working on getting him over his fear of new people. However if you don't have much traffic through your home and looking for a lovebug, he'd be perfect.

Sincerely, Chuckís UYR Foster Mom

Update 06/2/16: Charlie has moved to Des Moines, IA where his foster mom will be continuing work with his training. Please check back for an update on his progress.

Update 03/23/16: Since his rescue, we have been working on Charlie's crate training, potty training, behavior modification training for his fear of strangers, and leash training. Generally, I have been teaching him to be a ďgood citizenĒ in a home environment, something I think he never learned before. Charlie has come a long way since he arrived at my house.

The perfect home for Charlie would be a quiet home, no children, a fenced backyard with a doggie door, and another dog or two, if they are of a calm and stable temperament. The perfect owner for Charlie would be one that enjoys playing with their dog, teaching them tricks, and walking them. Charlie loves his toys, and loves to play. This boy has a big heart and is anxious to learn! Charlie will surely steal your heart.

Update 01/24/16: Charlie has shown aggressiveness towards strangers, although very loving to his foster parents. For this reason, we have placed his adoption on hold while we consult and work with a trainer. It has been recommended by the trainer that Chester and Charlie be separated as they tend to feed off of each otherís bad behavior. For that reason we have made the difficult decision that they will be separated and adopted to different homes.

Update 12/10/15: Charlie has no evidence of ringworm. He is the larger of the two boys. He would like to be a lap dog, as he will jump in my lap if allowed. He appears to be house trained, as he has had no accidents in the house. However, we are also doing crate training with Charlie. Both boys are just adorable and very well behaved in their crates.

Initial Bio: 12/07/15: Charlie is about 11 pounds and 3 years old. Currently he will require vet care for a skin problem, suspected to be ringworm. Both boys are just adorable with sweet personalities, and very good in their crate. I will know more after their vet appointment tomorrow. Charlie is on left of the picture, Chester on the right.

Dexter
Iowa
Dexter

Meet Dexter, a 7 year old male Yorkie residing in Waukee, IA.

Bio Update - 9/12/16. Dexter had a visit with the veterinarian today. Great news! He got a clean bill of health and is ready to find is Forever Home. He has done great with pottying outside. There have been no signs of potty accidents in the foster home, so far.

Dexter's adoption fee is $300. If you are interested in adopting Dexter, follow the link below to complete the adoption application.

Initial Bio. 09/11/16. Dexter is a beautiful 7 year old male Yorkie. He was released by his owners for potty issues, specifically marking in the house. Dexter has been in foster care for a couple of days. The foster family has made the following observations since Dexter has arrived in the foster home:

Dexter does go potty outside. He has been on a regular potty schedule, and so far has not attempted to mark in the house. He does wear a belly band when not under supervision to prevent marking or potty accidents in the home. He gets along very well with all family members. He enjoys children, men & women. He also interacts well with the other dogs in the home.

Dexter will require a solid/secure fence, no exceptions. He runs with speed and enjoys chasing rabbits and other wild life. His previous owners did have a few issues with him escaping from home as he is quite adventurous. He is an active dog and enjoys going on walks. He is most happy sleeping in a bed with humans. He is definitely a people dog and enjoys companionship. Dexter would make a wonderful companion. His ideal forever home would be one where he would receive lots of attention, regular exercise, and a secure yard to run and explore.

His new owner would need to continue working with Dexter on consistent potty training. This would mean pottying on a regular schedule and rewarding experience. Overall Dexter is a smart, affectionate Yorkie seeking an affectionate and patient forever family. He is looking for his furever home, so if you are his person, follow the link below to complete an application for adoption.


To date we've spent $213.06 on Dexter's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Paco
Iowa
Paco

Paco is a 10 year old, 12 pound male Yorkie residing in Bettendorf, IA

Paco has many medical challenges and hopes that you are able to support and donate financially to help with his mounting bills.

THANK YOU TO PACO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Dawn Beck, Karry Rogers, Sandra Wendt, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Sharon Dees, Elizabeth Giannone, David and Linda Rothrock, Paul Sherman, Wendy Fuhrmaneck

Update Bio. 8/30/16 Paco has been a busy boy this past month. He now has a special harness and leash that identifies him as a deaf dog, so people no longer just let their dogs walk right up to him. These items draw attention to Paco's deafness and prompts people to enusure that Paco sees their dog since he canít hear them approach. When we went to the farmers market, he stayed in the doggy stroller since it was his first time in a large crowd of people and dogs. He loved being in the stroller he only barked when he wanted out to potty. We also went for an event at the local pet store, where we spent a couple hours. He loved being petted by everyone. He still does not like being around larger dogs, but is slowly getting better. There is a blue healer that comes over to ply, and Paco can now be around her for longer periods of time before nipping at her. My neighbor has a service dog, so she is also helping me socialize Paco with larger dogs. Paco does has a ďgirlfriendĒ around the corner; A miniature poodle. His little tail just wags away when he sees her, and she is the only dog I have seen him get excited about. His hair is starting to grow out, and he feels super soft. He is very good with grooming. I bath him once a week, and although his hair is still on the short side, I brush him every day. He is doing good on the higher dose of medication. He still drinks more water than he should, but his food intake is at a normal amount now. He also still has accidents, but not as many as before. As he continues to improve socialization, he also continues to search for his furever home. If interested in adopting Paco, please follow the link to the application.

Update 7/29/16 Paco had blood tests to check his medication levels on Friday, July 22. Based on the results, we need to increase his dosage. He is doing well on his medication, and is without side effects. Here are the monthly costs associated with his health. He is on prescription dog food that runs $78.96 for 24 cans at the vet. His medication for Crushing's is $65.52, then it has to be compounded into a liquid which costs $48.38. His eye drops last a couple months and they cost $66.96. He is a very good little boy when it comes to taking his medicine. He loves to go for walks, and we take several every day. For the first time in his life, Paco met a dog much larger than him. It was a 10 month old blue heeler cross, and Paco was notas comfortable being around her as he is with other dogs his size or smaller. Paco seemed to do fine on the walk with the larger dog, but once inside he started to nip at her. We are going to work on this issue with regular get-togethers at home and at the dog park. Otherwise, Paco is a very good boy who is just waiting to find his forever home.

It was a 10 month old blue heeler cross, and Paco was not as comfortable around her, like he is with dogs his size or smaller. They were fine on a walk together, but once inside Paco started to nip at her. We are going to work on this with regular get-togethers at home and at the dog park. He is a very good boy just waiting to find his forever home.

Update Bio: 06/30/16 Paco's test results came back and he scored just above the normal range which indicates he has Cushing's Syndrome. We are starting him on the medicine which we will need to compound for his size. After beginning the medication, he will have a blood test at two weeks, one month and three months to ensure it is properly managing his condition.

Paco is very easy going. Foster mom's condo is having new floors installed and bathrooms remodeled. He loves all the visitors and supervises them while they work. He lays in the room they are working in and watches them. All the changes don't bother him at all. He is a sweet and loving little boy.

Update 6/21/16: Paco has recovered from his bladder stone surgery. The stones came back as 100% calcium oxalate. He is being put on prescription dog food and is scheduled for a Cushingís test on Monday, June 27, 2016. Paco has been with me for over a month and he has an amazing personality. He loves men, women, cats and dogs. Paco has been around children. The children left him alone, but were rough housing on the floor and it didn't bother him. He cuddles next to me on the couch and sleeps in bed with me. Paco would do best in a home where he gets lots of human companionship. He is housetrained and goes to the door when he wants to go out. If no one lets him out, he will have an accident. He does not like being in a kennel or confined in a room alone. If you are in a room with him he is fine. Paco is deaf but he watches you to see what is going on. He loves going on walks. When I want to change direction, I give two little tugs on the leash and he looks back at me. He still needs eye drops twice a day but they are easy to give. I lay him on his back on my lap and put the drops in. Paco is a very easy going boy just waiting for his forever home.

Update 5/26/15: Paco did great during surgery and is recovering. He is staying overnight and I will bring him home tomorrow.

Update 5/23/16: Paco started urinating blood and when seen by the vet after x-ray and urinalysis, it was revealed that in addition to an infection, he has 2 large bladder stones and an enlarged liver. The urinalysis showed a bladder infection and an overall exam confirmed severe infections in both ears, and a case of dry eyes. Paco is scheduled for bladder stone surgery ($1500!!) on May 26th to have the stones removed; at the same time his liver will be biopsied for Cushings Disease.

Initial Bio 05/18/16: Hi everyone! My name is Paco and I just arrived yesterday to my temporary foster home in the Chicago area. I am a 10 year old male and I weigh 12 pounds. I was picked up as a stray by animal control in the busy intersection of Cicero and Fullerton. I ended up at the Anti-Cruelty Society and they reached out to United Yorkie Rescue for assistance. I have a microchip that is registered to 2 different people. When Anti-Cruelty called the phone numbers associated with my chip, the first person said they gave me away and the second person said they had no plans on reclaiming me. So I guess these people just cut me loose without any regard for my well-being. But my past is behind me now and I look forward to beginning my new life. For starters, I got groomed today because I was a filthy and stinky mess! I look adorable now, if I say so myself. Next, I am being moved to my new foster home in Bettendorf, Iowa this weekend! I am already neutered, up to date on all my vaccinations, and heartworm negative! I am sweet and sensitive. I seem to get along well with children, adults (men included), and I don't mind other dogs. I potty outside if taken frequently. Being confined is not my favorite thing. I tend to bark when I cannot be free to roam around and check out my surroundings. I have a dry eye right now that I am getting treated for. Hopefully, after a round of antibiotics it will be resolved. I also have a bit of arthritis, but this does not prevent me from getting around, climbing stairs, or jumping not he sofa. Well that's all for now! Please stay tuned to follow my journey.

Romeo
Iowa
Romeo

Romeo is a 1 year old, 5.3 pound, male Yorkie/Maltese mix residing near Urbandale, IA. Romeo must be adopted within a 10 mile radius of his foster home.

THANK YOU TO Romeo's RESCUE ANGELS!

Kersten Weber

Update Bio. 09/22/16. I am doing really well with my new foster mom here in Iowa. She is teaching me it's better to be a lover than a fighter. I'm not very big in size, so I've tried to make up for it in attitude. It isn't working for me here in my foster home, but I haven't bitten anyone since I moved to Iowa. Having someone like my foster mom, who is in charge, has helped me relax a lot.

It will be a few more weeks before I am ready to start meeting people who are looking for my love. Of course, the people interested in me need to live within 10 miles of Urbandale, Iowa, so that my foster mom can be available to help my furever family get adjusted to me. and deal with my tendency to be in charge.

Hugs & Kisses

Romeo

Update Bio. 09/14/16.Romeo is very loving and active puppy with a dominant personality that we have yet to manage. He recently moved to Iowa with his new foster mom who is very adept in training. Much consideration was given before making the decision to move Romeo, but we believe that this move will be very beneficial to him when looking for his new furever home. Be on the look out for more updates as his new mom gets to know him.

Update Bio: 07/27/16 Meet Romeo! He is a very active, loving, 18 month, 5.5 pound ball of fluff! He is curious, smart, and stubborn- just like a puppy!! Romeo is very loving and will give hundreds of kisses when given the chance. He is very quick to ask for belly rubs and attention. Romeo sleeps through the night without a peep. His favorite place is snuggled right up next to you! He is a picky eater who would rather sit with his person than eat. He is also an escape artist. He will find a little opening- a door, a fence, etc and try to take off. Once he is free, he runs faster than a deer! We are working on training him to sit before he goes through any door, trying to develop patience and him that he is not in charge. Romeo is very talk-a-tive and will let you know he is not happy, especially when you are in a different room than he is. Romeo is not house trained. and currently wears belly bands to help with his training.

Romeo would benefit from:

- an experienced dog owner

- no children in the house

- fenced in yard

- someone who is willing to work on his training

- another small fur baby in the house (not mandatory)

- regular grooming

If you think he might be the one for you, please fill out an application! He is fully vetted and microchipped. Hurry! Romeo's waiting!!!!

Roxy
Iowa
Roxy

Roxy is a sweet 9 year old, 5 pound Yorkie girl residing in Blue Grass, IA

THANK YOU TO ROXY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Susan Lorenzen

Update Bio: 06/28/16 Hello everybody! It's Roxy, again. I am doing well, but still have not completely adjusted to other dogs. I am doing better with potty training, but still have accidents. I love to be home with my human, but am not particularly fond of children. Hoping to find my furever home soon, although I am happy right here with my foster mom.

Update Bio 05/16/16: Roxy has had all her shots now and dental completed to remove 5 teeth. She has adjusted well with adults but still has issues when she plays with other dogs. We haven't had any interactions with children in our house but should have that experience soon. She doesn't directly ask to go outside but will relieve herself anytime we take her. She would be a great only dog for a retired couple.

Initial Bio 04/16/16: Roxy is a 5 pound, 9 year old female Yorkie recently surrendered by her owners because she frequently nipped at their small children. In the short time weíve fostered her weíve found she is OK with adults but not with other dogs. She will need to be in a home that does not have children under 13 or other pets. Since she was caged a large extent of the time she does not like being restricted or left alone. She will need a home where an adult does not work outside the home.

Roxy is awaiting dental work on April 21st. She is clearly missing parts of 4 teeth and has major plaque indicating more will probably be removed.

I think her previous owners tried to train her on puppy pads but she is not housebroken in any way. She will potty outside when we take her out but does not ask or indicate she needs to go.

Roxy has food and toy aggressions but we are working on that also. She needs lots of attention and patience, but it will be worth it in the end.

Adoption Pending

INITIAL BIO 9/6/16: Meet Maizie, a tiny female senior Yorkie found wandering the streets. Maizie landed in a shelter in very rough shape. She was missing most of her hair, was covered in fleas, and in very poor condition. She is missing all of her teeth and suffering from extreme neglect. After her stray hold was over, the shelter reached out for help in finding a Yorkie rescue to help Maizie regain her health and UYR answered the call.

We just got Maizie into our rescue. We know very little about her other than she is older, in very poor condition and in need of immediate medical care and most importantly.....someone to love her and make her feel safe. We know she will have medical needs so if you can contribute towards her care, that would be so appreciated. And we will also accept all the prayers we can get for her recovery and well-being.

More info coming soon after her Vet visit!

Brie
Massachusetts
Brie

Adorable Brie is a 9 year old, 12 pound Yorkie female residing in N. Dartmouth, MA

THANK YOU TO BRIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Dawn Gowen, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Megan Senior, Dawn Gowen

Update Bio. 09/06/16. Hi, it's Brie. I'm still here in Massachusetts. We have had a hot summer, and I've enjoyed swimming with my FM and fur siblings. Now that the weather is going to get cooler, FM said we will start going on the trails for long walks and maybe go to the beach. FM says we've had plenty of families looking to adopt me, but since I'm so special and need special care, we are waiting for just the right family to love and care for me. If you think you can love and care for me, please fill out an application. Just follow the link below, and you will be directed to the application.

Bio Update. 08/05/16. Hi everybody, I'm still here in sunny Ma. Wondering where my new family is. I love my foster parents and step kids, but having a family to call my own is a dream. I need special food, allergy pills and a playmate. Could that be you?

Updated bio: 7/2/16 Brie has settled in nicely with her Yorkie foster fur siblings; they have shown her the ropes and taught her when evening treat time is which is always a favorite time!

Brie is on a special diet for her liver shunt. She had a flare up with allergies that the vet seems to have under control. Since Brie has weak bladder muscles, she does have some incontinence while sleeping at night. Brie will use a puppy pad and do her business outside when offered.

Brie would do well in an adult home and/or children 12 or older. Brie gets along with other dogs and was being cared for in a home with 2 larger dogs prior to coming to our home. Brie loves to be chased with her toys and continues to go into the laundry basket searching for a dirty sock to carry around. Brie loves to be with her person, cuddle and shower you with kisses. She gets very excited and his a wiggle butt when you return home.

Update Bio: 06/27/16 Hi everybody! It's Brie, again, barking back at you, as promised. I am all settled in with my foster mom, but would love to find my furever home soon. I love to play, especially with those dirty socks!. I still use the "piddle pads', but prefer to do my business outside when possible. I enjoy belly rubs and snuggling with my human. If you are looking for a playful, but loving yorkie, I am your girl!

Initial Bio 5/31/16: Brie hereÖ I am a 9 year old spayed female Yorkie, but donít let that fool you, I love to play and have a ball bounced off my nose. Tummy rubs and snuggles are also a favorite.

My owner became ill and was unable to care for me and felt I was being neglected because she couldnít walk or play with me as in the past. So here I am looking for a new home with help from UYR.

I have had some health issues. I was born with multiple Porto Systemic shunts. I had surgery in 2011 to close the major shunt. Also, I have allergies, I havenít been specifically diagnosed. Chicken is something I canít have. Iím up to date with my shots and take monthly heart worm medicine, flea/tick preventative.

By the way, Iím trained to a ďpiddle padĒ, but will do my business outside when itís offered. I do have one little habit, I steal socks, yup the dirty ones and I love it when you chase me for it. Hee, Hee.

Iíve been in my foster home for 3 days still getting familiar with my new surroundings. Iíll bark at you when I get more settled in.

Piper

Meet Piper. This girl is still a puppy, just a year old. She weighs only 6 pounds. Piper is being fostered in Winston Salem, NC. Please help us help Piper. She needs so much medical care or she wonít survive.

THANK YOU TO PIPER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Update 9/8/16: On August 8 Piper visited the NC State University College of Veterinary Medicine for her first recheck after being rescued. At this visit she was sedated so the crust that had formed on her skin and almost all of her hair were removed. This revealed lesions ranging from areas of dermal collapse and scarring to large superficial dermal pustules just below the epidermis (top layer of skin). At that time 3 containers were submitted for biopsies. The 1st contained 3 punched biopsies of her thigh, 2nd container contained 1 punch from her trunk and the 3rd container held 3 punched biopsies from her chest and abdomen. These biopsies were sent for culture by the labs at NC State University College of Veterinary Medicine Anatomic Pathology Laboratory.

A severe case of bacterial follicular-centric pyoderma was diagnosed. On August 29 Piper returned to NCSU and she showed a remarkable improvement with the use of doxycycline. However she has developed multiple new follicular pustules on her abdomen, and chest. Since they look similar to the ones previously biopsied, it is not believed this is a new problem. Microscopic results saw no bacteria, however another culture was taken to determine if this is the same pyoderma and also if it is bacterial. This new test will require culture for approximately 14 days. IF there are no bacteria, and the new pustules are in fact the same, she will be given a steroid to help promote healing.

The entire staff at NCSU has examined Piper and her lab results and cultures and at this time there is still no clue as to why this pup developed such a severe case of bacterial folliculitis. An ongoing treatment plan has not been developedÖwe are at a ďwait and seeĒ point watching for improvement and re-occurrence before making any changes to her treatment protocol.

On the "good news" front, Piper's eyes are much improved and discontinued use of cyclosporine was advised. A topical ocular lubricant long-term will be maintained for her. Her skin issue caused scaring around the eyelid which caused it to be turned out and less protective of the cornea.

Piper is an amazing little girl. She is totally housetrained and loves to cuddle, after a large amount of play time. She has captured the hearts of all who come in contact with her. Her torso is still wrapped to promote healing and avoid injury as she plays with her 3 siblings in her foster home.

Initial bio 7-29-16 This sad little girl is Piper. She is only a year old and life has been really hard for her the last few months.

Somehow someway she developed a terrible skin condition called severe pyoderma. It has caused awful lesions on her skin that are painful and could cause so much damage that her skin tissue could start to die. These skin issues have also caused her eyes to become infected. One eye was so bad it crusted over and she was unable to open it on her own.

Her local vet was treating her for these issues until her former owner was told they had no idea what caused this and how to treat it. It seemed she was not responding to any treatment. They suggested taking her to the state university veterinary teaching school. The vet there looked her over and suggested treatment that Piperís former owner simply could not afford. When she went back to her local vet they said, since she canít pay for treatment to just put her down.

It was at that time her desperate owner reached out to United Yorkie Rescue with a plea to help this little girl, so she didnít have to sentence her to death. And because of who we are and what we do United Yorkie Rescue could not say no. We took Piper in and immediately took her back to the Veterinary School for evaluation and treatment. It was found she was resistant to the antibiotics she was on and she was also not eating. The eye that was all crusted over was taken care of, but her eyes will need care too.

This morning Piper went from the emergency care department to the dermatology department who are overseeing her care. She has now been seen by 3 different veterinary specialists: the dermatologist, the ophthalmologist, and the soft tissue specialist. This is what we know about Piper and her continuing care. She is on a new antibiotic to heal her skin lesions and it may be working, but we wonít know for another 7 Ė 10 days. She saw a soft tissue specialist and they recommended to gently remove the top skin that has scabbed over, but to not do anything else right now until she finishes the antibiotics. However the dermatologist wants to leave this layer skin to protect the wounds and healing skin underneath. Her third consult was with the ophthalmologist. She has keratosis on top of both her corneas. She needs two different medications in the hope her eyes do not ulcerate.

Piper is being released, with all her medications, to her foster home this evening where her expensive care will be continued. She will have to go back to the veterinary specialists in about 2 weeks for further evaluations. A very expensive biopsy may be needed and we donít yet know what further care her eyes will need.

There is no doubt we needed to save this pup. Piper is so young; we were not ready to sign her death sentence. Everyone at the hospital who has met her said how sweet she is and what a wonderful puppy she is. They all said how glad they are that we took and are working to save her life. However, as you can guess this care and the cost of keeping Piper alive will be expensive and we canít do it alone. Please whatever you can give, whatever you can afford, anyway you can help us to help this sweet puppy would be so appreciated. Piper the puppy needs your help. Please donít let her down.

Piper is not yet ready for her forever home. When we know more after her follow up visit we hope she will be able to start receiving adoption applications.


To date we've spent $2011.99 on Piper's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $2730.00 in donations.

Molly

Molly is an 11 year old, 5 pound sweet, little Yorkie girl. She is being fostered in Nashville, TN.

THANK YOU TO MOLLY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Irene and Peter Havas in memory of Buddy, Vanessa and Pepe

Updated Bio 9/15/16

Molly is a precious Yorkie girl being fostered in Nashville, TN. Molly has had rough life and she is looking for a furever home where she can spend her glory days. Molly came to the United Yorkie Rescue through an owner surrender. Unfortunately, Molly's family was unable to give her the love she needed. Prior to being that family, she had been rescued by another small dog rescue from a puppy mill bust in West TN. The puppy mill conditions were deplorable and she was expected to deliver litter after litter of Yorkie puppies for pure profit! Luckily, Molly has found her way into an amazing foster home! When Molly first arrived she had severe dental disease, a very bad upper respiratory infection and yeast overgrowth on her skin. Through love and support from her foster family and the DOGtor, Molly's dental disease and upper respiratory infection have healed, but she is still battling yeast overgrowth which is being treated with anti-fungal. She is also somewhat allergic to grass.

Molly is an absolute angel! She loves to cuddle and nap. In the last several weeks she has really come out of her shell and shown her spunky side! She prances when she walks and grabs the hearts of everyone she meets! She gets along wonderfully with her foster brothers. She likes to play and frolic in the grass. She doesn't ever bark or become aggressive. Unfortunately, Molly is not potty trained and seems to be very stubborn at the idea. Her foster family is working with her though. She will need a furever family that understands and accepts that she might never be fully potty trained. She does not walk on a leash well, but she does love a good car ride! Molly is spoiled rotten! She loves to sleep on the couch and bed, but is unable to jump on them, so you have to help her. She finds comfort and shelter in her kennel and will often go in there willing to nap and relax.

Molly would love a family that is laid back and understanding that she isn't a spry puppy! She just wants cuddles and love!

Initial bio 8-8-16 Molly just arrived at her foster home. We know very little about her, but she is going to the vet today and we will know much more. So watch for more on Molly coming very soon.


To date we've spent $677.11 on Molly's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $20.00 in donations.

Update Bio. 09/13/16. 9/11/2016 Hi everybody, its foster mom today. Jasper has had such a horrible and scary day today. He woke up from a dead sleep and proceeded to be sick to his stomach. Immediately afterwards he went into the scariest moments of my life because he was gasping and wrenching to just breathe! This horror went on for about 10 minutes. I stayed with him and worked with him to calm him down and offer support. After those 10 minutes he continued throughout the day to gasp as if his trachea was collapsing off and on. He refused food as well.

I contacted the vet on call and he of course was very concerned. Three possibilities could have just occurred. First, he could have just passed a clot. With Jasperís HW disease this is one of our fears. Second, its possible worms or fragments entered his lungs causing the constriction of his airways after he threw up. Thirdly, he had developed caval syndrome with his heart worms. He decided we should add a steroid to help with the inflammation of the lungs and if anything changed, I was contact him immediately and he would put him in the hospital under oxygen and observation.

Monday Jasper saw his doctor and he was down a few ounces from his 5lbs to 4.7lbs. After his examination it was determined that we will truly not know what had occurred. Although we once again had a set back, positivity has come out of this. His doctor is putting a call into Texas A&M University to review Jasperís case and get a consult with specialists. He has never seen a dog this size, this sick, with such a severe case of this deadly disease. He hopes that A&M will help him devise a plan that we can use to help Jasper!

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, continue to keep Jasper in your prayers. Jasperís medical is going to be quite expensive but we will not stop caring for this baby everÖthatís what we doÖthatís our purpose and we will never fail a fur baby. Thank you for your love and caring!

Update Bio. 09/07/16. Hi Everybody, it's me Jasper again! MY foster mommy took me to the dogter again, so I'm having her write this because I know you all love me and want to hear about my latest news, which my foster mommy looked upset about today.

Soooo, I went to see this dogter that did an echo on my heart! Haha...I don't think they know what an echo is, Oh by the way they said it's because my heart sounds weird...hellooo echo!! Well, the dogter says that I have soooo many worms in my heart that they spill over in my atrium (isn't that for plants), and they are laying across my valves, moving around and are about 8 inches long!!! Ewwww gross! That's about as long as I am, too. What made my foster momma sad is that I need more special care because this is very, very dangerous. I'm only 5lbs. Yes I gained weight, and yes my hair is growing back in, but these worms make me cough and make me tired, so they can't fix me like all other dogs. I have to do special treatments, which is gonna take about 6 months to finish IF they can do it! Momma cries because she says I was failed by my previous owners in so many ways, and that no little one should have to go through so much. These mommy's and daddy's at United Yorkie Rescue are just the best! She wants me to have the best life: A day without being sick and the best furever family, because I am just the cutest, sweetest baby in the world. All I want is for her to hold me, let me give her sweet kisses, and sleep as close as I can by her. She knows that my furever family will just love that, too.

So I am asking everyone that has followed my story to please think about me and help United Yorkie Rescue with my long term medical expenses. I know it was the best day ever for me to be rescued by them. I was sooo sick, and my owners never cared about me. UYR cared and loved me from the moment they saw me. And trust me, I was not one of those fancy looking Yorkie by any means! I was skinny, boney, naked ears, naked legs and belly, sores on my body, and now these gross worms!

If you can't help, I understand and love you just the same. But, will you please share my story, because someone else just might be able to. UYR has so many like me, so it always helps.

Thank you for reading my story again!

Hugs, love and puppy kisses,

Jasper

Update 08/17/2016 Hi again, itís me Jasper! Momma said I needed to give everyone a little update about me and whatís going on with her caring for me so here I am. Sooo, right after my last report, my foster mom had to rush me to Dogter AGAIN!! I could hardly walk again and she tried to give me some sugar water cause I was scaring her then when she sat me down I wobbled and fell over and just went stiffÖshe said it was a seizureÖwhatever that is. The Dogter said the bad people that had me before had just not let me have enough food or water and I needed to stay with him and spend the night so he could put this giant needle in my tiny leg and feed me lots and lots of fluids and antibiotics. He said he thought the last time after he gave me fluids and medicine I would get better, but I was just so compromisedÖanother big word!! My foster mom gave me big kisses and gave me my blanket from FABB and promised me she would be back first thing in the morningÖshe was crying. That Dogter was pretty smart because when I woke up I was so excited to see everyone in the morning that I was barking and jumping around and I ate a whole can of food. He knew exactly what I needed. My foster mom came and I heard them talking about me. Dogter said that they arenít going to do anything until September so I can just have time to eat good and be strong like a big guy. I like that! So there you have it.

My foster mom thinks I might be gaining some weight, I still am bony on my spine but she sayís Iím filling out. I still donít like to drink water, and the Dogter said that might be because I learned to do without it, but my momma feeds me wet food so I stay good and hydrated. My fur sister and brother are teaching me how to play too. We get some laughs!

Anyway, please donít forget about me. I have some pretty expensive medical things to get done so if you can help I would give you puppy kisses. And although I have a lot things to fix, momma says Iím going to be strong enough to get my very own familyÖ.sheís the best!

Update Bio: 8/8/16 This morning Jasper did NOT want to come out of his crate for potty time and breakfast. Normally he wakes up his foster mom with his little whine so she knew something wasn't right. When he was taken out to potty, he would just wobble and then laid down. He ate a little bit but not well. His regular vet was out until June 15 so Jasper was taken to a new vet who examined him and noted he was lethargic, his breathing wasnít right and he was dehydrated.

The vet suggested we do a blood panel so that we can get answers as to whether there was infection going on that just is not visible. He said he would check to see if there were any heartworm microfileria that the other vet couldnít see. He also administered some subcutaneous fluids while he was drawing blood to hydrate him as well. The vet also checked his thyroid levels because his hair loss and baldness might be the result of thyroid disease.

The early results of the blood work showed normal liver and kidney values, a thyroid issue and a a raging pustule infection. Jasper has been started on Clavamox antibiotics and Levothyroxine for his thyroid problem. We should soon see hair growing back and an improvement in his overall energy and appetite. Jasper will have a recheck in two days. At that time weíll retest for the heartworm disease and develop a plan of action for his dental and neuter. Jasper got his Fur Angels Blanketeer blanket and he is now resting comfortably and all snuggled in. Thankfully he ate a good dinner so we hope we are on the road to recovery for this sweet boy.

Initial Bio: 08/05/16. Hi everyone. My name is Jasper, and I am 4 years old and weigh only 4 lbs. I was rescued from a really nice neighbor who contacted UYR to try to help me, and guess what, they did!!! You see, my neighbor saw that I was pretty neglected. I was left in the back yard with some other big dogs. I didn't get to eat very much because they were big. So, my bones stick out. They say I'm very emaciated...that word is bigger than me! I was also very, very itchy because the fleas gave me sores and made me lose some of my fur. It's so bad,my ears are bald. Oh my! Although I am only 4, my teeth are bad I will have to have some taken out! I already got a lot of shots too, called immunizations, which made me cry. Since I don't have much fat, they were pretty painful. Because my family didn't take care of me, my foster mom has to talk to a doctor about my heart because it just doesn't sound right. They say mosquitoes bit me all over, and gave me this disease that caused me to be heart worm positive. On top of all that, they say I need to have surgery to remove that private part of the body, called neutering; But, I have one that is hiding inside me so that is gonna be a little tricky, too. The vet says before we do anything like surgeries we have to score my heart, because the heart worms are pretty bad. He said my heart may sound funny because of the heart worms or something else, like splitting of heart tones. Whatever that is. That's a lot for a little 4 year old I think!

My foster mom says I am just so cute and handsome. I already know that she loves me. She told me she was going to make sure I was going to feel better, because I really don't feel too good right now. The nice neighbor lady that rescued me first loves me too. They cried when they saw me in such shape, so they held me and called United Yorkie Rescue. They wanted me to have the best! My foster mom says that I am very, very special, and that she just knows I will have my furever home as soon as I am well.

I will keep you posted on how I am doing. I'm pretty tired today and sleeping right next to my momma. If you think you could love me furever, think about adopting me. Please think of me while I recuperate and keep me in your prayers! If you can, please help United Yorkie Rescue with my care...we are going to need a lot of that that, too. Love, Jasper.

Tobi
Texas
Tobi

Tobi is an 8 year old Male Yorkie looking for his forever home. This is a courtesy listing and he is being fostered by his current owner in Allen, TX.

Initial Bio 8/25/16: Tobi is very loving and playful and gets along great with our two other yorkies. His main issues are peeing in the house and sometimes he will nip out of fear if he doesn't know you. Tobi can be territorial and represents what you would expect from a dog that hasn't been socialized much or very well. We suspect he spent a lot of time in his crate with his previous owner. He is fine with other dogs but can be a bit of a bully when there is food involved. He will bump the others away from the food bowl and is protective of it. Luckily our two other dogs don't really care about food but they do get territorial with treats. Tobi is very loving otherwise, responds to correction, and loves to play. He is a lapdog who just wants a home where he is the object of all your affection :-) He is up-to-date on all vaccinations and current on heartworm and flea prevention.

Carly

Carly

Meet Carly. This very young, very tiny little girl needs our help right away. Carly just turned a year old on August 21st (yesterday). She is only 4.8 pounds and the cutest little girl ever. She is being fostered in Richmond, VA.

THANK YOU TO CARLY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Rafael Pardo Macias, Jan Freeman, Jean Moffitt, Judith Graham Burgess, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Linda Marcis, Marcia Lee, Daniela Camacho, Karry Rogers, Sue Robinson, Bonnie Vaupel, Brenda Glasbrenner, Brenda Chapman, Teresa Beament, Morgan Jones, Linda Crawford, Phyllis Lewis, Sarah Bartel, Carol Polumnbo, Tim and Dawn Hawkins, Rachel Schultz, Ilene Rand, Linda Ryan, Gail Clemons, Pamela Trucco, Victoria Rambo, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Maureen Martinek, Karry Rogers, James Burke

Updated bio 8/31/16 Carly surgery to repair the break in her leg was scheduled for Friday, August 26th. Her surgeon did new x-rays in order to fit the plate to her leg before beginning the surgery. He found that there had been an amazing amount of healing in the break in her foreleg in just the past couple of weeks. He decided to take the splint off of her leg to evaluate her surgical needs in a follow up visit. She will always have a bent foreleg due to the previous break. This bend is causing an abnormal rotation of her wrist. Since she was already under anesthesia he did do her spay.

Carly has a follow-up visit scheduled with the surgeon for September 13th. Carly will most likely need a plate inserted in the wrist area as she is not using the leg very much and is in pain with it at times. This type of surgery is less drastic than the original treatment plan. For now Carly is dealing with the ďconeĒ on her to keep her spay incision clean and healing. She is also being given an anti inflammatory medication as needed to help her with the pain of her wrist and leg. Carly will not be ready for adoption into her forever home for at least 2 to 3 months while her bone continues to mend and the follow up recovery from the plate that will be surgically inserted. If you would like to donate towards Carlyís medical needs it would be so appreciated.

Initial bio 8/22/16 Carly is such a playful puppy and then it happened. In spite of being watched carefully and before her former mom and dad could reach her, and they were sitting right next to her, she decided to jump off the couch. Being so tiny and fragile, as these little dogs are, she broke her leg. She was taken immediately to the vet and they set her leg in a cast. After several weeks they thought the break was healed, but sadly it wasnít and she had to be splinted a second time. Despite her leg being cast twice it didnít fix the break, and now little Carly needs surgery to repair it completely. Her former mom and dad felt that the best thing for Carly was to have her become a United Yorkie Rescue dog. They knew that we would make sure she got her surgery, no matter what it took, because that is what we do.

Carlyís surgery will happen on Friday August 26th. It will be expensive, so again we are reaching out to our rescue angels and asking you to help us help this sweet, tiny puppy girl. We canít do it alone. You have never let us down before, so letís not let Carly down now.

Please, whatever you can give to help us help Carly to walk again would be so appreciated. She is so young and such a happy, loving girl, and we know that you as well as United Yorkie Rescue want to give her the best life she can have. Thank you so much for all the love and care you have shown so many of our needy dogs, now it is Carlyís turn. This would be such a great way to wish Carly a Happy Birthday.

Carly thanks you, and of course United Yorkie Rescue canít thank you enough. And as ever our gratitude is endless.

Goldie
Virginia
Goldie - Muffin

Goldie is a beautiful golden Yorkie mix girl. She is approximately 3 or 4 years old, and weighs 15 pounds. Goldie is being fostered in Richmond, VA

Updated bio 8-18-16 Goldie found herself homeless in Southwest Virginia until a family took her in. This nice family named her Muffin, but unfortunately they were unable to keep her. She was sadly surrendered to United Yorkie Rescue. Her foster family decided that she was more a Goldie than a Muffin and so they named this beautiful girl Goldie. Goldie has been fully vetted and microchipped. She is now ready for her forever home. She is a very healthy, young dog who is just waiting for the right family to give her her forever home.

Goldie is mostly potty trained. For her convenience, her foster parents leave down potty pad for her to use whenever they are gone. Goldie will do fine in a crate for long absences. She does very well overnight sleeping in her doggie bed.

Goldie has been evaluated by a trainer and is said to have no food aggression, toy aggression, or any poor behaviors when it comes to humans. She is easy to bathe and loves being petted. She does not have any interest in toys, but is very much food motivated for training.

Goldie is an energetic young dog who gets along fine with well-behaved, gentle children. She knows several tricks, but her foster parents are trying to figure out the rules. Ha-ha. She is super sweet and loves attention and interaction with the family. Goldieís favorite things are being outside in the yard and going for rides in a car. She can run pretty fast after the birds in the yard, so a fenced yard would be ideal for Goldie.

Goldieís foster parents have discovered she doesnít like cats. She will bark, growl, and get upset if she sees unfamiliar dogs while on walks. After about a month of work and supervision, Goldie has become accustomed to the other female dog in the foster home. They now walk well together on leashes every day and can be left unsupervised for short periods of time. Her best home would be one with a fenced yard, school aged children, and no cats. She would prefer to be an only dog, but she should be okay with another dog her size or smaller

If you are looking for just the right dog to complete your family, Goldie is the one for you. Please fill out an application if you are interested in being Goldie's forever family!

Initial Bio 7/15/16

Muffin was found dumped in the middle of a country road in southwest Virginia just a couple of weeks ago. The family took her in and took her to the vet and found out that she was not chipped and had no collar or identification. They could not find her original owners after contacting local Animal Control, shelters, and putting up flyers.

Muffin is super sweet with people and kids. She really bonded with the father of the rescue family. She has been evaluated by a trainer and is said to have no food aggression or toy aggression or any poor behaviors when it comes to humans. She is easy to bathe and loves being petted. She does not have much interest in toys. She is very aggressive towards cats and other small prey such as squirrels and birds. She seems to be very fearfully aggressive towards other dogs. Her foster Mom and Dad are working with her to socialize her with their pack, but it is going to take patience and persistence.

She has done well in a crate for short periods of time and is good about signalling to go outside to go solid potty. She has had a few urine accidents due to not signalling for this need. She is up to date on shots and has been groomed. She is being treated for some "hot spots" on her rump by steroids and antibiotics. She will be fully vetted this upcoming week.

So far her favorite things to do are to go for walks on a leash and go for rides in the car. She walks well on the leash with slack unless there are other animals nearby. She is seriously the most chill dog I have ever had in my car.

Muffin would be best in a home as the only animal at this time. She would do well with school aged children or older.

Please fill out an application if you are interested in being Muffin's forever home!

Virginia
Olive

Tiny Olive is 5 years old and only 4.8 pounds. Olive had a rough start in life, but things have sure gotten better for her. She just had cataract surgery and she can now see. Olive is being fostered in Boydton, VA

Initial bio 9-2-16 Meet tiny Olive. Life had been pretty hard for this very little girl. She ended up at the shelter sick and blind. A wonderful lady who does big dog rescue rescued her. That fateful day she went to pick up a lab and the shelter officer showed her this tiny yorkie they found wandering up the road. She was skin and bones, hairless, and blind from cataracts in both eyes. Olive had one hour left before the shelter was going to euthanize her and her life would come to an end. This wonderful person immediately took her home and started to care for her. She paid for Olive to have the cataract surgery that has restored her sight. With her loving care Oliveís hair has grown back, she put on some weight, and is now a healthy dog.

This angel knew that Olive needed to go to a Yorkie rescue. This way the best home could be found for her. So little Olive became a United Yorkie Rescue dog, and we will make sure that Olive gets the absolute perfect forever home. She will never ever find herself alone, sick, and on the streets again.

Olive is such a happy, sweet girl. She is very healthy, though she will need to have eye drops put in her eyes twice a day for her life. What a small price to pay for being able to see again. Olive needs a few more vaccinations and her spay and she will be ready for her forever home. Olive gets along with other dogs, and she can go to a home with children over the age of 14 who understand that she is a small dog who needs to be treated very gently and with great care.

If you think Olive is the dog for you please submit an adoption application for her.


To date we've spent $92.50 on Olive's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $500.00 in donations.

Reeses
Wisconsin
Reeses

Meet Reeses. A 6 year old, 8 pound Yorkiegirl being fostered in Milwaukee, WI

THANK YOU TO REESES' RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandra Wendt

Update Bio. 9/15/16. Reeses has been seen by the vet. She is in the early stages of her heat cycle, which usually lasts for 30 days, and we learned she cannot be spayed until she is 6 weeks past the end of her cycle. At the time of spay, she will also have a dental to remove some decayed molars. Reeses does have luxating patellas in both back knees. Correction of those will need to be discussed with a specialist. Reeses gets along with quiet dogs, but she doesn't like to play and attacks if another dog tries to play with her. I do think she would do best as an only dog and in a home where someone is home much of the day. She wants to be with her person and doesn't like being caged. She tolerates the crate at night if she is in the same room as the rest of us.

Initial Bio: 09/10/16. Meet Reeses, a sweet 6 year old, 8 pound Yorkie girl who is being fostered in Milwaukee, WI. Reeses lived with her owner since she was 6 weeks of age. Financial reasons and a traveling job prompted her owner to surrender her to United Yorkie Rescue. According to her mom, she is a barker and a cuddler, trained to puppy pads, and is very healthy. Once we have completed all her vetting including a spay and vaccination updates, she will be ready for adoption. She is good around other dogs; no small children please because she might be prompted to snap if not properly handled. If interested in adopting Reeses, please follow the link below to complete an application.


To date we've spent $255.49 on Reeses's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $187.59 in donations.
Please donate!
