Benji
Alabama
Benji

Benji is a very sweet, 7.9 pound little guy. He is about 6.5 years old and is being fostered in Mobile, AL.

THANK YOU TO BENJI'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Karry Rogers

Initial Bio 8/25/15 Benji has finally arrived at his foster home in Mobile, AL. He made the long trip from South Florida to Mobile and is settling into his new home. We can tell you he is a great car rider, so quiet and so patient.

Benji has had a rough few weeks. He was diagnosed with Ehrlichia which is a sickness dogs can get from a tick. It is very treatable and curable and in a few weeks he will be just fine. He also developed kennel cough and is currently being treated for that too. He will need some good, healthy, high quality food and a nice medicated bath or two to help his coat be beautiful again. Benji was one very sad, depressed, and lonely dog waiting to be rescued. But no more. He is now in a wonderful foster home with a family who will love him and care for him until he is healthy and happy and ready for his forever home.

Benji's medical care has been expensive. Please find it in your heart to donate whatever you can towards his care and to allow United Yorkie Rescue to continue to give him the medical care he will need as he fights his way to recovery.

Once his foster parents get to know Benji a little better they will update his bio, so watch for that. Benji's foster parents asked that you please excuse the pink harness on him. That is all they had that would fit him. He really is a boy and will have a boy harness in his next picture.

We know Benji won't be ready for is forever home for at least 3 - 4 weeks, but applications are being accepted. If you think you might be the right family to love this little guy fill out an adoption application for him.


To date we've spent $415.28 on Benji's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $50.00 in donations.
Please donate!

Presley
California
Presley

Presley is a 7 yr old yorkie mix who weighs 8 pounds. He is housetrained and needs to be an only dog with no cats and not children. He is being fostered in Long Beach CA. Presley's adoption fee is $300.

THANK YOU TO PRESLEY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

and Ross, Chico, Tyson and Medo, Fabian Arellano

Update 03/24/15: 3/24/15- Hi everyone. It has been about a year since I was rescued from the shelter. My foster mom has had some ups and downs trying to train me and realized that she might need a little more help. So I will be going to a behaviorist to see if I can kick some habits that might not be the best in my new forever home. Hopefully after the training I can go up for adoption again. My foster mom says not to worry that she is going to try very hard to do do everything she can so that I can go up for adoption again. So until the sessions are done I won't be able to be adopted. This is a very critical time for us so wish me good luck. Presley out.

Update 09/19/14- Hi everyone, Presley here. It has been 6 months and I am still with my foster momma and sister. I love it here but would love to find my forever home. I had a few people interested in adopting me but they weren't quite the right match. I am hoping that before Christmas I can have my forever home and spend my first holidays with them. I am hopeful and keeping my paws crossed.

Update 04/23/14: I have been with my foster momma for about a month now. I am doing great with my foster sister and haven't had anymore accidents. I am completely vetted and just had a dental cleaning. I am crate trained and sleep in my bed but would be a great bed cuddler if permitted. I am so full of energy and love to be petted and play fetch. There are times when I am trying to hide under a bed or couch and do not like to be bothered for this it would be best to not be in a home with children. Other then that I am very happy little boy and can't wait to find my forever home.

Initial Bio 3/20/14: My name is Presley. I had my first vet visit this week and am just waiting on my results. My foster mom says that I am a sweetheart and that I am a good listener. I do what I am told. I have had a couple of accidents but for the most part I go outside and do my business. I can't wait to find my forever home.


To date we've spent $840.64 on Presley's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $122.00 in donations.

Billy
Florida
Billy

Billy is a beautiful, silver colored Yorkie mix, probably a Schnauzer-Yorkie (Schnorkie). He is about 5 years old and weighs a very skinny 9 pounds. Billy is being fostered in Leesburg, FL.

THANK YOU TO BILLY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Kimberly Fondaw, Gloria Stahly, Karry Rogers, Gale Sittig, Louann Larson, Jan Freeman, Connie Peters, Phyllis Lewis, Stacy Savage, Regina Brantley, Jessica Lundquist, DeAnn Deutsch, Sharon Traficante, Deanna Weeks, Peggy Brown, Barbara Carvalho, Jody Otwell, Gale Young, Sonia Laboy, Eden Chrostowski, Yolanda Hobbs, Sandy Pagnotta, Carolyn Kazmer, Daniela Camacho, Beverly Craven, Wendy Fuhrnmaneck, Mary Cronin, Deanna Coberly, Ronald Pratt, Cheryl Scrupski, Marilyn Eanes, Sandy Thompson, Sarah Roland, John Sauser, Tammy Brown, Susan Benfield Gough, Yolanda Ramos, Lois Daniels, Vicki Silver, Maria Luisa Coppelli, Karen Burroughs, Erlinda Lopez, Ana Neves, Susan Garber, Suzanne Brusseau, Charlene Dougan, Sandy Elyahou, Sandra Brueggemann, Sarah Davies, Bonnie Vaupel, Mary Lee Thompson, Amanda Ojeda, Lynda Slipetz, Marisa Daly, Hilda Bacardi, Johnell Costa, Kim Stanton Grossman, Sylvia Liebl

Updated Bio 8/21/15 Billy had his surgery and the prognosis is very good for a full recovery after 2 months of rest and healing.

It was quite an extensive and expensive surgery. He had two plates and 6 screw implanted in him. He will need to be crated and keep quiet for up to 8 weeks. Right now he also has a cough that his surgeon feels is due to the fractured ribs. He is on antibiotics, and pain medication, so whatever it is or caused it, it will get better. ​His ribs will heal slowly along with the repair.

He remains the sweetest boy. So patient and good. He has handled all that has happened to him with such courage and grace.

The pictures show his sad tale, but life is now on the up-swing for this boy. He has found a safe place to get well, both physically and emotionally.

United Yorkie Rescue took a chance on this fellow, and I am so happy to say he deserved it. Watch for updates and pictures as he continues to heal and his hair grows back.

For all of you who donated to his surgery, we can't thank you enough, and to everyone who wished him well, thank you so much for that, too. It was so nice to know how many well wishers he had and so many who were pulling for his recovery.

Updated Bio 8/17/15 Billy had his first appointment with his surgeon today and it was good news. The air in his chest caused by the fractures and trauma to his ribs is almost gone. The ribs will heal slowly without much further treatment.

More good news-- the surgeon is pretty positive he can repair the fractured pelvis. It should be almost as good as new. There are some bone fragments loose in the area, but they will be removed and it should not effect the repair. Billy will also be neutered during the surgery.

The bad news for Billy is that after the surgery he will have to be confined to crate rest for at least 8 weeks. And once he starts to feel better that will be hard. But it is only through no activity that his ribs and his fractured pelvis will heal completely.

This life saving surgery comes at a cost. It is a long, involved, and expensive surgery. Once again United Yorkie Rescue is asking for your kindness and for your help to help us cover the cost of Billy's surgery. Without it, Billy would most likely not be alive today. United Yorkie Rescue is so happy we could give Billy this second chance at a long, happy, and healthy life. Please help us so we can continue to help Billy and the many other dogs that need us. Anything you can give will be very appreciated by Billy and by United Yorkie Rescue.

Initial Bio 8-16-15 Meet Billy, our saddest new foster boy. Billy was just days away from being euthanized at the shelter if someone did not step in and save him. And once again United Yorkie Rescued answered the call. Billy was hit by a car and he will need immediate expensive surgery if he is ever to walk and play again. He has several fractured ribs and a fractured pelvis on his left side. Billy will be seeing the veterinary surgeon as soon as possible for a consult. We will then learn what will be involved to fix his ribs and his pelvis him and how much is will cost. We already know that this is going to be a very expensive surgery, but this boy has already shown he is so worth saving.

He is so sweet. He is very friendly and loving and does not seem to have a mean bone in his too skinny body. He is in pain even though he is on pain medication. This brave boy has not whined or complained one bit and he has to be hurting with all that is wrong.

United Yorkie Rescue took a chance and saved his little fellow, but once again we can't do it alone. We are reaching out to you to find it in your hearts and in your pockets to dig down and help us get Billy the surgery he desperately needs. Billy is not asking for much, he is just trying to have some more years added to his young life, Please help this baby to get his surgery, to stop hurting, and to have the life he deserves.

We do not know much more about Billy. He is quietly resting in his crate waiting for the pain to stop. When Billy has seen the surgeon we will update his bio.

Please click on that donate button and let's give Billy his life back.

Bubba
Florida
Bubba

Bubba is our newest Yorkie boy. He is approximately 6 years old, weighs 7.8 pounds and is being fostered in Clearwater, FL.

THANK YOU TO BUBBA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Updated bio 7/20/15 Bubba is a very sweet and adorable ​7 year old, 12 pound darling little yorkie boy. He is being fostered in Dunedin, FL.

Bubba would like to share a little about himself.

Hi everybody, Bubba here with an update on how I’m doing! My vet says I’m at least 8 years old, and that my vision is pretty limited​. That may ​probably ​be ​because of my previous seizures when I wasn’t being taken care o​f​.

​It seems I have started having seizures again, and Foster Mom has me under the close watch of my vet. I’ve also gained a lot of weight ​and now ​I weigh just over 12 ​pounds. We think that is because of my medication​. M​y foster mom and vet are working to get me back to my healthy weight of ~8 lbs.

​I am such a sweet fellow and everyone who meets me just loves me. I do like to sleep a lot, but I like to give love and kisses too. ​

Because my seizures have started again, ​Foster Mom​ says my vet bills have ​gotten high ​too. I need to get better before I can be adopted, but until then, won’t you please consider helping ​United Yorkie Rescue ​pay for my vet bills?

Updated Bio 4/21/15: Bubba is a 6-7 year old, 8 pound Yorkie from the shelter who almost lost his fight against a life-threatening infection throughout his body. In addition to this infection, he also had seizures, which we think were probably never treated for perhaps his entire life. So sad. Bubba is doing much better now and is being fostered in Dunedin, FL.

Bubba’s recovery may be at its optimum now, but there is a chance he could improve with more time. Due to his complex and neglectful past, he will never recover from the brain damage noted in more detail below.

On the bright side, this little sweetheart has no lingering infection and has not had a seizure since starting anti-seizure medication, which he will need for the rest of his life. Bubba's neurological deficits do not distract from his sweetness one bit! He loves to follow you around as closely as possible (sometimes a bit too close, watch out!) and he loves to snuggle. There are times, without warning, Bubba will wake up from what seems like a deep sleep and impulsively leap from your lap without looking around to determine his safety. The combination of his lack of clear vision in one eye, being situationally unaware, his impulsiveness can be startling at first. His silly quirks could potentially cause him injury if you're not paying very close attention. Bubba still wobbles when walking, often listing to one side or another, but he can now run around pretty fast ~ Go Bubba!

It is likely that Bubba will never re-learn or understand the tricks of house-training. He likes to potty outside, and this behavior will probably not change as he doesn’t seem to distinguish that it is inappropriate to potty inside. He also doesn’t have the ability to give cues to his human that he needs to go out. So his perfect home would be one which had at least one stay-at-home parent that could take him out often.

With all of his special qualities and needs, this little miracle boy needs to find his HERO to give him the safe and loving forever home he deserves. Bubba loves his FM & FD equally, and even gets along with the cats. He likes to play with his toys and entertain himself. At night he snuggles into his crate where he feels secure and safe, while avoiding the risks of accidentally walking off the bed and hurting himself.

Bubba cannot be adopted into a home with children under 15 years old and he would adjust best in a calm and quiet environment. He needs a loving and very patient mom and/or dad to keep him company, while also keeping a watchful eye on him. He will need to be given his anti-seizure medication twice a day for the rest of his life, and in return will give you kisses a million times a day to show his complete love and devotion ~ and thanks ~ to you for loving him. Bubba will be having his dental 04/24 (say prayers, please, as the vet warned that the anesthesia may induce seizure activity) and will be ready to go to his forever home!

Could YOU be the HERO that Bubba has been waiting for and so desperately wants? Please don’t turn away from Bubba due to his special needs ~ consider turning towards him and letting him know that he will always be safe in your loving arms.

Be On The Lookout! Bubba will be groomed next week, so check back for new pictures and a video of this sweet boy!

Update 03-18-15 Bubba (FL) started to PLAY!

If you remember, Bubba is the 6 year old, 7.8 pound guy fostered in Clearwater, FL that UYR picked up from the shelter. He had seizures and was fighting a terrible infection. We didn't know if he would survive the first couple of days. Look at him now! He is feeling much better after his antibiotics and he has had 3 full seizure-free days since starting his medication last week. Bubba is not "normal" and may never act completely appropriate. He tries very hard to keep up and follow everyone around, but that is hard when he's falling over every few steps. Sometimes he gets a good momentum going, but then his legs can't keep up and he plows face first into the grass outside. He usually seems to hear and see just fine, but as you can see in the video, his brain doesn't always seem to connect. Due to this special quality, Bubba cannot be adopted into a home where he'd be around any children. He has accidentally chomped his teeth down on his FM and FD's fingers while they were giving him his medication OR playing with a toy. Although he gets a "squeak" out of either victim, he fully intends to chew on the cotton filled toy with the occasional finger being a total mistake. Bubba will get his dental cleaning next week and would love to find his safe forever home. He will need his seizure medication twice a day for the rest of his life and a whole lot of love. He would love someone to keep him company and a watchful eye, but if you had to leave the house, he is happy taking long naps in a safe room where he cannot find a way to get hurt. Bubba is as sweet as he looks! If he sounds like he'd fit perfectly into your home, please fill out an adoption application on our website www.UnitedYorkieRescue.org.

Updated Bio 3/11/15 Bubba (FL) started having seizures on Tuesday night. They were each only a minute long but terribly scary. On Wednesday, Bubba was getting ready to return to the vet for some blood tests and had his most severe seizure lasting multiple minutes of kicking and "screaming". His lab results have shown that his kidney and liver markers are normal. The only extremely high level is his white blood cell count, which we expected, from his body fighting off this infection. At least we know that we are on the right track for treatment and we can provide all of the loving support he needs as his body tries to work with the medicine and heal. Bubba will also start on a medication for his seizures, so let's all hope he doesn't have to suffer through those terrifying episodes for much longer.

Here is the good news... Bubba was enthusiastic about eating today! FM didn't have to use a spoon or syringe to get the meal started, Bubba just jumped face first right into the breakfast bowl. A few hours later, Bubba stood up and started trying to walk around! He is very wobbly and is still falling over often, but this is the first time in days he has even attempted to move around. By this evening, Bubba explored right over to the other dog's food dish and decided he wanted to eat that food too. We were all SO EXCITED! Well, maybe not the other dog so much, but he let it slide, just this once. Let's all hope that Bubba has turned the corner and will continue to show improvement each day. We are not out of the woods yet, but he's looking a tiny bit stronger in between his long hours of napping. Hopefully by the end of next week, we will be able to update Bubba's story again with continued progress. Thank you all so much for the support!

Initial Bio 03/10/15: A local shelter contacted UYR over the weekend to help Bubba after he was surrendered by his owners for having seizures. He was infested with fleas and had multiple teeth pulled by the shelter veterinarian during his neuter. Although no seizures have been seen by the shelter or UYR (yet), Bubba is very sick. When his temporary foster mom picked him up he had green goo in his eyes and he would only lay still and shiver.

Here is a video of Bubba on his ride away from the shelter:

Buba Rescue Ride

Here is a video of the only time Bubba tried to walk that first day:

Buba

The second day he developed a very high fever and wouldn't try to walk, eat or drink. His teeth are in very poor condition and have likely caused a significant infection taking over his tiny body. An urgent trip to the vet yesterday ended up with injected fluids and antibiotics to get a quick start on fighting his high temperature. He couldn't lift his head and with every breath, Bubba moaned a faint and desperate cry. Late last night sweet Bubba stopped his sad whimpering when snuggled into FM's chest, where he slept all night with an ice pack as his blanket. Today, he is still very unsteady on the one occasion he tried to take a couple of steps. This morning, Bubba only drank the water given to him by a syringe but this evening he has had a few laps from a bowl and even ate a spoonful of food.

Here is a video of Bubba today: Buba 1

We are all hoping he is strong enough to fight through this first battle so we can look further into his possible neurological condition.

Jack Jack post surgery
Florida
Jack Jack

Jack Jack is an adorable, 10 month old male Yorkie puppy, being fostered in West Palm Beach, FL

THANK YOU TO JACK JACK'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Karry Rogers, Linda Davis, Barbara Carvalho, Connie Pfeiffer, Jan Freeman, Christine Schneiderman, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, David Scharfenberg, Mary Cronin, Kathy Benson, Ann Mothershed, Joanne Vogel, Gloria Stahly, Jodi Pistler, John Sukroo, Michael Baker, Daniela Vrillaud, Tracie Wiesman, Sandy Pagnotta, Connie Peters, Cheryl Scrupski, Megan Mason, DeAnn Deutsch, Melinda Tomas, Jennifer Searcy, Karry Rogers, Laura Venchuk, Roberta Witman, Aaron Updegrave, Patricia Mohead, Renae and Jerry Sutley, Irene and Peter Havas

Updated bio 8/02/15: Meet Jack Jack. He is an approximately 10 lb., 1 year old Yorkie being fostered in West Palm Beach, FL.

Jack Jack had surgery to correct a former break in his leg. He recently had the pin in his leg taken out and x-rays done. He is healing as planned. He is, however, still limping, and is not healed all the way. This will take several more weeks before we know whether or not the surgery was a success. He had also developed a staph infection on his back thigh. thankfully that has finally healed. Jack Jack still has some pink skin showing, and it is a bit sensitive, but it is no longer scabbed over. He is going to get groomed in another week or so, so check back for new photos.

Jack Jack is a very sweet dog who gets along great with other dogs and cats. He is a bit insecure though, and will initially bark at people he doesn't know, but we feel that is a matter of socialization, which we have not been able to do since he is supposed to remain inside during his healing. He is house trained. He will use a pee pad if one is down. If he is not let out in a timely manner however, he will have accidents, but it is not often, and I really blame the humans rather than him. Jack Jack is a very loving, goofy dog who would make a great pet for an active household.

Updated bio 7/08/15: Jack is an approximately 1 year old, 10 lb Yorkie boy, being fostered in West Palm Beach. When he came into rescue, he had a break in his front leg that had never been fixed, so he was not putting a lot of weight on it and walking with a limp. Jack had surgery to correct this in June. He has a flexi bandage on his leg to keep him from walking on it, and he gets it taken off and put back on every 2 to 3 weeks. He is doing very well, and is not bothered at all by having his leg bound up. His stitches are out, and his scar is all healed up. Unfortunately, he developed a terrible and very painful staph infection on his rear right thigh about 2 weeks ago. We do not know the origin of the infection, but he was put on antibiotics to keep the infection at bay. It has affected almost his full right thigh, and much of his skin has sloughed off, leaving a red, painful area. It is gruesome to look at, however, it is healing, so we are thankful for that. Poor Jack Jack has had to wear a large e-collar though to prevent him from licking and aggravating his wound. He seems to be used to it though, and it has not slowed him down. Jack Jack will be going back to the vet on July 13th to have his 2 flexi band removed and a check up.

Updated bio 6/20/15: Jack Jack is a 1 year old, 10 pound Yorkie boy who is being fostered in West Palm Beach, Florida. He went back to the surgeon last week to have his bandage removed. The surgeon was happy with his progress. He is not supposed to be using his leg yet, so he is getting his leg re-bandaged back up next week. This will continue for several more weeks. In the meantime, he is his happy, bouncy, loving self, and adjusting to life with the use of 3 legs with no issues.

Updated bio 6/9/15: Jack Jack is a 1 year old, 10 pound Yorkie boy who is being fostered in West Pa beach Florida. Jack Jack got out of surgery and is now home. The surgery went as expected, however we won't know whether it was a success or not for another several months until his leg heals enough for him to bear weight on. Please keep Jack Jack in your thoughts and consider donating to his care.

Updated Bio 06/08/15: Jack Jack, fostered in West Palm Beach, is a little 10 lb, approximately 1 year old Yorkie who we found wandering the streets of south Florida, completely matted and very hungry. He had an injury to his leg that had never been fixed, his leg was broken, and this caused him to not be able to put weight on his leg, and continually limp. He recently saw the orthopedic specialist who felt he could help Jack Jack.

This morning, he went in for his surgery and we are hoping everything goes as planned, and that his leg can be fixed . The surgery is going to run over $2,000 and to date, we have raised less than $1,000. Would you please consider donating to Jack Jack's surgery? UYR is a private rescue that receives no public financial aid. Without help from our wonderful and generous supporters, we can not continue to rescue and rehabilitate all the little yorkies we do. Thank you so much! Stay tuned for more Jack Jack updates as he comes out of surgery this week.

JoJo

JoJo is the cutest little malti-poo. He is 8 years old and weighs just 6.5 pounds. He is being fostered in Leesburg, FL

THANK YOU TO JOJO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Updated bio 8-18-15 JoJo is an adorable 7 year old Malti-poo. He weighs about 8.5 pounds and is being fostered in Leesburg, FL.

Hello everyone, it is me JoJo. I know you haven't heard from me in a while, so let me tell you what's been happening. Well first of all my bladder stone issues are all gone. BUT I am still having problems with my behavior. I can be so sweet and loving, then if someone does something I don't like I will curl up my lip and snarl, I will even growl and sometimes, though not as often anymore, I will bite them. My vet says I am a devil dog, but my foster mom thinks I am the cutest, sweetest boy ever. She says all the time it's a good thing I'm cute because I'm not very good sometimes.

Before I came to my foster home there were some people who were not very nice to me. They hurt me and didn't take very good care of me. I learned if it was mean to them and growled and bit them they would leave me alone. I tried to protect myself, but it didn't work so good. They did leave me alone, in a cage for hours at a time. Only it didn't make them like me any better. And then when I got that awful bladder stone, they never took care of me and I hurt even more. I am much happier in my foster home. Everyone loves me and they are taking such good care of me. I am working so hard to learn to trust them. I think it will still take me a lot longer, but I am trying so hard to be a good boy most of the time.

Now I am also coughing a little too. I think I heard my foster mom say she is going to take me for an x-ray because she thinks I may have a small trachea, whatever that is. I don't like to cough, and I sure hope that x-ray doesn't hurt. I hate to be mean to my nice doctor but sometimes she makes me a little mad.

My foster mom and dad said I am not yet ready for my forever family. They are afraid I may try show off some of my bad behavior, so they are still working with me.

Maybe in my next update I can tell you how much I've improved. Keep your paws crossed.

Updated bio 6/23/15 JoJo is an adorable little poodle mix boy. He is 8 pounds and being fostered in Leesburg, FL.

JoJo has recovered very nicely from his bladder stone surgery. He has healed physically but emotionally he is still harboring the scars of years of neglect and abuse.

When we took JoJo into United Yorkie Rescue he was most likely days away from death. The stone in his bladder was so big it would have only have been a short time, maybe days, before it totally blocked his urethra causing imminent death. From the amount of urine stain on his beautiful coat he must have been caged and left sitting in his urine for a very long time.

JoJo still is not ready to totally trust people. He can be as sweet as can be, cuddling and kissing and loving. In the next instant something can happen that, for some reason, he does not like and he will show his teeth, growl, and even bite if his foster mom or dad does not heed his warning.

JoJo's foster mom and dad are working very hard on socializing JoJo so he knows that no matter what he can trust people. He needs to learn that showing aggression is unnecessary and wrong. Through love, positive reinforcement, and understanding JoJo is slowly learning, but at this time he is still not ready to be adopted into his forever home. Because the neglect and abuse went on for so long it will take months before JoJo is emotionally healed and ready to once again trust that people will always be kind and caring.

Please continue to watch for updates on the progress JoJo is making. This sweet little boy deserves this second chance at happiness and United Yorkie Rescue has lovingly given him that.

Updated bio. 5/23/15. JoJo is an adorable, most likely 7 year-old, 7 pound little guy. He is a poodle mix. We think maybe a Malti-Poo. He is being fostered in Leesburg, FL.

There is good news and bad news about this precious little guy.

The good news---- The bladder stones have been removed and he is almost totally recovered and doing well. The awful orange/rust stains on his beautiful coat have been shaved off and he knows it's gone. He feels like a new dog. A bad memory gone.

JoJo eats great, sleeps great, on his foster mom and dad's bed, and no longer feels the urge to urinate all the time. He appears to understand that he needs to go out to do his business. There have been very few accidents in the house. He gets along great with his foster sister, though he does like to possess whatever toy he is currently carrying around in his mouth. He likes to bark sometimes, but will quiet down after being corrected.

Here is the not so good news---- JoJo is not yet ready to be adopted. His foster mom and dad have discovered, not so pleasantly a few times, that when JoJo does not like something he will become aggressive. He will show his teeth, growl, and has bitten a few times. Sadly JoJo has learned that he can't trust his humans. I guess being locked in a crate for such a long time, sitting in his own urine and being neglected and, we suspect, being hit too often, has caused him to distrust people. He is slowly learning to trust his foster parents and the incidences of aggression have been reduce dramatically, but he is not ready to be anyone's forever dog just yet. We do not want him to go to a new home, bite someone and either get turned back in to us, or worse put in a shelter and possibly put down for aggression. Therefore he will stay in his foster home until he has learned that people can be trusted and he doesn't have to be so fearful that he has to attack them. We know he was muzzled and we know he was mistreated. Now he has to unlearn what he learned to do to protect himself while understanding he is safe and loved and will never be hurt again.

JoJo and his foster parents would like to thank everyone who donated to his surgery. We almost collected the amount it cost. We are just a few dollars short, so if you can find it in your heart to give a little more we can pay for the whole surgery.

Please watch for updates on JoJo's Looking For Love page. There will be a time when he is ready for his forever home and we will joyfully post it here. Until then JoJo will stay in his foster home and learn that love and kindness and caring can be his and he never has to be scared again.

Updated bio 5/12/15 JoJo is a 6.7 pound little Malti-poo. He is 8 years old and being fostered in Leesburg, FL

JoJo is back home after his life-saving bladder surgery. He is recuperating under the care and love of his foster mom and dad. JoJo is still not feeling the best, but he is on the way to a full recovery. A very large stone and three smaller ones were removed from his urethra and bladder. It was very close to a full blockage and would have only been a matter of days until the stone fully blocked his ability to urinate and he would have died. The vet said the stone was so big for his little bladder that is was pressing on his colon causing him even further distress.

See the orange/rust colored fur, that is from urine stains. All we can figure is that he sat in a crate in his own urine for a long time with staining that bad. How sad that much have been for him.

Once JoJo is feeling better we will know much more about his personality. He seems to get along fine with the other dogs. We know he rides great in the car, and he likes to cuddle and give kisses. We do not know if he is house trained. Because of his small size JoJo cannot go to a home with children under 14 years old

JoJo was left by his family at the shelter. He will never have to worry about that again. He is safe and loved. Please help United Yorkie Rescue continue to help JoJo and so many others who need our care. Help us pay for JoJo's life saving surgery. Remember every dollar you give goes 100% to our pups. JoJo thanks you very much.

JoJo will not be ready for adoption for a while as he recovers and we get to know the real JoJo. However adoption applications will be happily accepted for consideration.

Initial Bio 5/8/15JoJo was rescued today out of the shelter as an emergency rescue. He has a large bladder stone, and possibly other smaller stones, blocking his ability to releave himself properly, and without surgery as soon as possible he will die. He is being watched very carefully this weekend for any signs that the blockage becomes total. If that happens he will be rushed to the emergency vet for immediate surgery. If that doesn't happen then surgery is scheduled for first thing Monday morning. JoJo is very uncomfortable and because of the pressure on both his bladder and colon he feels the urge to try to potty all the time. Once he has surgery he will be like a new boy. He can't control the urine that is dripping out, but as long as urine is present we know he is okay.

JoJo has only been in his foster home a few hours, but we can already tell he is such a sweet boy. He has made himself at home in the doggie bed and has already given his new foster parents lots of kisses. He is so happy to be out of the shelter and home with a family again.

We know JoJo is not a Yorkie, but when United Yorkie Rescue found out that this was a life and death situation and no other rescue had stepped up, we did. It was more important to save a life than anything else.

JoJo's life saving surgery will be expensive for United Yorkie Rescue, but saving his life is priceless. If you can reach into your hearts and pockets and help us with Jojo's surgery expenses it will be greatly appreciated. Please donate what you can by clicking the donation button under his bio. JoJo and United Yorkie Rescue thank you very much.

Because of JoJo's small size he cannot go to a home with children under the age of 12.

New updates and pictures coming soon after JoJo's surgery.


To date we've spent $536.55 on JoJo's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $675.00 in donations.

Perla

Perla

Updated bio: 7/19/15 -- Hi Everyone. My name is Perla. I am 6 years old. I now weigh a perfect 5.2 pounds, and I am looking so good. I am being fostered in Delray Beach, FL.

Although I was not well and was underweight, I am proud to say I now weigh a whopping 5.2 pounds, and I am very healthy. I have also learned to use a wee wee pad regularly, but my foster mom is very pleased that lots of times I wait for Foster Mom to take me out. I don't like grass, but will happy do my business on a sidewalk or other cement. I don't signal to go out but when Foster Mom takes me out-- I go.

I do have one problem that Foster Mom can't fix. I will not eat any kind of dog food, AT ALL!!! Foster Mom makes me a loaf with lean ground beef, mixed with rice and string beans and carrots. She gives me 1/4 cup two times a day. She made me taste every dog food she could find. I guess I just like my foster mom’s cooking the best. Since I don’t eat much it is easy to make a whole week’s worth of food and give me a little each day. Not too much to ask for such a sweet little girl like me. I am totally worth it.

I used to nip my foster mom’s dog when she took him out alone but not anymore! Only he better not come too near my food. Other than that, I have learned to get along with other dogs.

Foster mom has taught me that people love me. Now I go to everyone who will bend down. I sleep in bed with Foster Mom and her dog, Elvis. I am always willing to meet other dogs with a lot of curiosity. I like to squeak my toys. I'm cute and Foster Mom says when my hair grows in I will be beautiful.

I take two meds every other day. One is omega 3 and the other is because my thyroid and calcium were out of whack. Because I don't eat dog food I need the vitamins in these two meds. One is about $15 a month, and the omega 3 is around $24 every three months or so and that is only $8 a month. Really not a lot of money for a great dog because I am as sweet as sugar.

Now, I know I get along with other dogs, but really I would like to have my very own person, so I don't have to share. Oh, and one more thing, I don't like to be alone for hours and hours at a time.

Because I am so small I cannot go to a home with children under the age of 14. I you would like to make me your forever baby, please fill out an adoption application. I am so worth it. You will see.

UPDATED BIO 05/29/15. Perla is a 5 year old 4.3 lb Yorkie girl being fostered in Delray Beach FL.

Hello again every one. It's Perla and I'm back with an update. I'm still trying to gain some weight. I don't eat chicken anymore because it gave me an upset tummy. My Foster Mom makes me a special concoction with ground beef, rice and green beans and that is working better for me. She is SO GOOD to me so I'm going to make her happy by gobbling it up! She wants me to me closer to 5 lbs so I will try my best. My Dogtor is waiting for my thyroid tests to come back but my calcium levels are normal now so that is good. My Foster Mom says I am such a sweet girl and have made such progress!

FM says I like to be wherever she is. I love to squeak my toys and chew bones. I sleep with FM at night as close as I can get

I now use my wee wee pad most of the time, at least 98 %. I will now pee and poo outside but I don't like grass so I go on the cement but love wee wee pads too. I want to go everyplace with you! I am not really happy with other dogs but I'm getting better but don't come near me when I eat or I will angrily chase you away! I like the car and love when foster mom takes me for a walk. If I'm not in the mood to walk I plant my feet and you need to pick me up. I would love to be an only dog so I can just be loved all time. Is that YOU? If so then PLEASE apply to adopt me and make me your FUREVER GIRL. Love Perla

Phyllis Schwartz

UPDATED BIO 5/4/2015: Perla is a 5 year old (estimated 4-6) 4.5 pound Yorkie Girl being fostered in Delray Beach FL.

Well Hello there EVERY PAWDY! It’s ME Perla here with an update on what’s happening these last 3 weeks. Things are definitely looking UP for me! You may remember that my last owner had to give me up because she got Alzheimer's and couldn’t take care of me anymore. She loved me a lot but because of her illness, I was unintentionally neglected. I didn't get my thyroid medicine and had terrible fleas that got me very sick.

When foster mom got me I was not potty trained at all. Now after only 5 weeks, I am flea-free, back on my medicine and BEST OF ALL I am doing SO GOOD using potty pads! If there is a potty pad in a room I am in, I will use it 90% of the time to pee pee and once in a great while to poo! Is that just TOTALLY PAWSOME or WHAT???? I am doing MUCH better with my behavior too. When I came here I was SO VERY AFRAID because I was in a strange place with new people and I had been through so many changes I didn’t know WHAT to EXPECT. I was SO SCARED I would sometimes nip at my foster mom if she wanted to pick me up……She was just trying to HELP ME…….I didn’t understand……..And I feel bad because now I JUST LOVE HER to PIECES and I would rather be in her lap than just about ANYWHERE! I have turned from a scared little waif to the sweetest little lap dog around town!

Let’s see….what ELSE have I done? Oh yes, I am also working on my LEASH WALKING. This was something I never did before coming to live with Foster Mom. I am doing so good with house training and being NICE that my Foster Mom says I can learn to walk on a leash now and I’m doing better every day. Pretty soon I will be an expert leash walker!

Did I mention that I LOVE TO BE WITH MY HUMAN? My favorite thing to do is be with my PERSON; doesn’t matter WHERE that is…..it can be in the car, curled up in a lap or snuggled up inside my person’s arms. I missed out on loving like this and I am ready to make up for LOST TIME!

I need medication every day for my calcium/thyroid condition. It costs about $52 per month. I have some dandruff which the vet says is because I didn't get my meds every day. A drop or two of omega 3 on my food will is helping with that too.

Are you ready for the best news? My Foster Mom thought it would be a LONG TIME til I was ready to be adopted because of my fear issues. BUT………I have done SO WELL with that……SHE NOW THINKS I AM READY FOR THE WORLD! I am OVER THE MOON excited to think that maybe soon I will be going to my FOREVER HOME soon!

For me, my perfect forever home is probably one where I can be the only dog. I liked the dogs I saw at grooming today but when foster mom's dog gets in the same room as my food I'm not nice to him. I'm getting better at that too. I have made so much progress……Foster Mom says I am a “PEARL of a GIRL!” Oh yes, and I am also bilingual! I can bark and woof in both English AND Spanish! I came from a Spanish speaking home but my English is coming along and I just learned how to make a toy squeak!! I just bite and bite and bite and the toys squeak and squeak. Who KNEW? If you are ready to have a Pearl of a Girl for your very own, then apply to ADOPT ME!

UPDATED BIO 4/14/2015: Hi, my name is Perla. I am being fostered in Delray Beach, Florida. I am between 6 and 7 years old and weigh 4.7 pounds, but foster mom thinks another pound will make me the perfect size.

I have lived all my life with a nice lady who got too old and sick to take care of me. She did not potty train me at all, but my foster mom says I am learning quickly where to do my business. I am learning English slowly, but foster mom talks to me mostly in Spanish, especially about going to wee wee pad to potty!

Because I was not outside much, I am scared of just about everything. My foster mom is teaching me a lot.

I need to be an only dog to someone who will continue to show me how to not be afraid. Other dogs scare me, and I am not too nice to them!

I will be having a dental soon. I am already spayed. Foster mom will update you on my progress. She calls me Pearl because she knows I will come out of my shell nice and shiny! Wouldn't you like to love a Pearl like me?

Initial Bio 3/29/15 Perla is a very sweet, small little girl, She is between 6 1/2 and 7 years old. She is a little too thin right now at not quite 7 pounds. She is being fostered in Delray Beach, FL.

Little Perla was sadly surrendered by her owner who has becoIme too elderly and ill to care for her. She is a very loving, friendly dog. Perla has a calcium imbalance that is well controlled by medication. She may need the medication for her life, but with it she is able to have a long, healthy life. Her former owner said the medication costs about $52 a month. She will be taken to the vet soon and we will have more information on her condition.

Peril's owner didn't house train her, so her foster mom will be working hard on that. In fact she followed her foster brother out to the yard to potty. She is already learning. She is a little too thin right now. Her foster mom will get her on a diet to increase her weight to one that is right for her.

Please check back soon for more information on Perla as her foster mom gets to know her better.

Adoption Pending

Ruby is a beautiful 8 year old 7.5 lb Yorkie girl being fostered in Bunnell, FL

THANK YOU TO RUBY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Nestor Sanchez

Initial Bio 8/18/15 Meet Ruby! Ruby came to us from a wonderful military family who had Ruby's best interest's in mind. Ruby has stable IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) that is well managed but after many moves and overseas deployments Ruby's family realized that this was creating stress for Ruby and they made the loving decision to reach out to UYR to help find Ruby and great FOREVER home where she can have the consistent stable life she needs to stay healthy. Ruby eats prescription food and takes two medications (Prednisone and Metronidazole) to control her IBS. The average monthly cost for her medications is about $30-$35 per month. Ruby will need to be on these for the rest of her life. Ruby is very sweet and loving and gets along with other animals. She has just landed in her foster home so stay tuned for updates as we get to know her better!

Rusty

Rusty

8-9-15- Courtesy Post Bio for Rusty. Meet Rusty. Rusty is a fun-loving, spunky little guy, who is between 5 ½ and 6 years old. He weighs 12 pounds and is being fostered in Lake Wales, FL.

Rusty is an adorable yorkie mix, who his foster mom calls her little pirate. When his owner surrendered him to the shelter he had an eye infection. By the time he was rescued and taken to the vet it was too late to save the eye and it had to be removed. This has not slowed Rusty down one bit, and unless you look really hard and close you wouldn’t even notice it’s missing.

Rusty is sweet and full of energy. His foster mom said he would do best as an only dog, no cats, dogs, or other pets in the home. Rusty wants all the attention and works hard to get it. He loves older children because he loves to play and is so good with them. Rusty would prefer a fenced yard, since he loves to run around and chase the birds and squirrels. He can also have fun with the kids in the yard, but only children over the age of 11, please.

Rusty likes his crate and will take his toy or chew bone into his crate with him. In fact, don’t try to take his toy away, he can get a little upset. He will take it and retreat with it into his crate so no one can take it from him. He will also sleep in his crate at night. Rusty is a good eater and a good sleeper. He is also housetrained.

Rusty’s foster parent said no out of state adoptions for Rusty, Florida residents only.

This is one great little fellow and would be a wonderful addition to any family looking for a fun loving, happy, playful pup.

If you think Rusty is the one for you, please contact yorkielove24@gmail.com or fill out an adoption application.

Tommy

Tommy is an 8-year-old terrier mix being fostered in North Port, FL

THANK YOU TO TOMMY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Nestor Sanchez

Update 08/30/15: Tommy is a 5 year old terrier being fostered in North Port ,FL

Tommy continues to be a healthy, very active pup that thrives on lots of attention. Loves to go for walks and playing with his person.

FM is surprised that he has not found his furever loving home yet!

Please give Tommy a chance he is most deserving !

Any questions contact FM at yorkie luv681@gmail,com.

Updated Bio 7/27/2015 Tommy is an adorable, amazing, sweet, approximately 5 year old, 10 lb male terrier being fostered in North Port, FL. He has a personality that is one of a kind.

FM wants everyone to know I am a unique little active buddy that likes to run around and play play play.

I enjoy going for walks so much that when I see my halter I jump up and try to chew it before Foster Mom gets a chance to put it on. Lol Of course I love sitting on the couch next to Foster Mom, giving and getting lots of kisses!

My favorite part of the day is meal time. I stand up on my hind legs and do a little dance till Foster Mom puts my bowl down. I feel bad about trying to nip anyone coming close to my bowl, but I hope you understand that I was starved for long time and am always afraid my food is going to disappear!. Foster Mom keeps telling me that will never happen again.

If you have lots of patience and love to give me, please fill out an adoption application. Thank You, Tommy .

Update 06/29/15: Tommy is a 7/8 year old terrier being fostered in North Port, FL

Foster Mom wants everyone to know that I now weigh a healthy 10 lbs and my fur is almost all grown in!! Yay! I have become a happy little man who loves to run around in the backyard and get fluffy toys and make FM play run and catch!! Now I don't mind the other "buddies" in my foster home and even tried to play with little Judy B!!

I love being in foster mom's lap and getting belly/back scratches. Being picked up and getting lots of kisses also makes me feel great! Sometimes I get a little snappy when someone also wants attention from FM but I'm getting better!! I'm happy to always have food to eat but owing to having been starved for a long time, I will not allow anyone but FM sometimes near my bowl of food..

If you can give me lots of time, patience and love, please fill out an adoption application... Xoxo Tommy

Updated Bio 5-26-15 Tommy is steadily gaining weight. He is now weighing 9 lbs. though a healthier weight for him would be 10 or 11 lbs. His fur is growing very nicely and Foster Mom is continuing to bathe him twice a week.

Tommy enjoys running in the backyard and playing with fuzzy toys. He ignores his foster buddies. Foster Mom thinks an ideal forever home would be one where he would be the only pup.

Tommy, of course, craves and needs lots of attention and love. He is food aggressive owing to his horrific past and Foster Mom doesn't know if he will ever get over that.

If you feel you have lots of time and tons of love to give please fill out an adoption application. Tommy is most deserving!!

Updated bio 5-9-15 Tommy boy is an 8-year-old little terrier mix. He is still underweight at 6 pounds. Tommy is being fostered in North Port, FL.

Guess what?? Tommy got a great vet report! His blood work was great. All levels are normal. No thyroid issues and no heart murmur either. His hair loss may be due to flea infestation, but it is growing back. Foster Mom is continuing to bathe him on a daily basis. Tommy’s vet said it’s okay to continue giving him liquid Benadryl.

Tommy is still underweight. He needs to have his weight at at least 8 lbs. But he has gained ½ pound so that is the good news. He is getting his three meals a day and enjoying every one of them. His house training is continuing and he is making progress.

Tommy had his teeth and gums cleaned. What a difference. No more stinky breath. He had 4 teeth removed. Tommy is currently on Amoxicillin for the severe gum disease and also on Hydroxyzine for the skin itching. It seems to be helping since he is itching much less and there are signs of fur growth.

Until Tommy reaches 8 pounds he will not be ready to be adopted, but we are taking application for him. This is one very special little boy, who more than anything deserves a forever home and a very happy forever life. He has been through so much and still loves everyone. Hopefully the right person or family is out there to give Tommy that happily ever after he so deserves.

Update 05/04/15: FM now working on potty training.

Of course Tommy still has to gain about 3 lbs but that shouldn't take too long as he just loves to eat.He is a sweet little man that needs a lot of TLC and gives tons in return.

Will keep you updated on his progress..

Initial Bio 4-30-15 This very sad little boy is Tommy. Tommy was just rescued today. Tommy is a too skinny 5.5 pounds. He is possibly 8 years old. He is being forested in North Port, FL.

Tommy's first stop tomorrow morning is the vet for a complete medical check up. We do know that he is severely underweight and should weight closer to 7 or 8 pounds. He has a heart murmur, periodontal disease, and severe hair loss, which could be from a possible thyroid or endocrine dysfunction or possibly flea dermatitis. We will know so much more tomorrow.

His foster mom said despite everything he is very sweet and loving, though pretty weak right now. Tommy did not deserve what has happened to him. So much neglect and sadness in his life. Tommy is safe now. He will never be looking out from behind bars again.

After Tommy's vet visit tomorrow we will know more. Please continue to check on Tommy's progress and pictures as he is loved and cared for by his foster parents and United Yorkie Rescue.


To date we've spent $693.90 on Tommy's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $100.00 in donations.

Molly is a 7 year old, 10.5 lb. female Yorkie Poo being fostered in Athens, GA

THANK YOU TO MOLLY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Nestor Sanchez

Initial BIO 8/17/15: Meet Molly! She is a SUPER SWEET and UNBELIEVABLY CUTE Yorkie Poo who has just come into United Yorkie Rescue. Mollie's former owner was no longer able to give sweet Molly the attention she deserves so she reached out for help to find Molly that one, special and perfect FUREVER home that she wants and deserves. Molly appears to have no obvious health issues but will be going in for a complete check up this week to be sure she is 100% healthy and ready for adoption. Her former owner shared that Molly does great with other big dogs but has been known to chase after cats if she catches them running. Molly's foster Mom is just getting to know her so stay tuned as we have more information to share about sweet Molly. We feel Molly would do best in home without small children under the age of 14.

Tsula
Georgia
Tsula

Tsula is a 4 1/2 year old 5.5 lb female being fostered in Suwanee, GA

THANK YOU TO TSULA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Irene and Peter Havas, Kate Young, Holly Stavis, Holly Stavis

Updated Bio 7/10/15 Tsula is a 5 year old, 6.5 lb. Yorkie being fostered in Suwanee, GA. Tsula is called TsuTsu (pronounced TsueTsue) by her Foster Parent. She is a very smart little girlie and already knows her name! Tsula is the Cherokee word for Fox and this little girl has a very beautiful foxy look and an adorable undocked tail.

TsuTsu's dental revealed that she had debris embedded in her oral cavity. Upon closer examination, it was discovered that Tsula had a stick embedded deep inside the roof of her mouth. We can only imagine how painful that must have been! The stick was removed but afterwards it was discovered that there was a residual hole that created a communication between her oral and nasal cavities. This is called an oronasal fistula. The vet tried to repair the hole, but was unsuccessful in closing it completely due to the lack of available tissue. It is possible that Tsula may need to see a specialist (dental or surgeon) for a surgical repair, however the vet believes she can live a healthy life with the fistula as it is. She does have some problems with food or water getting into her nasal cavity, which causes her to have some nasty sneezing fits. Her teeth are somewhat discolored from years of neglect, but this does not keep her from giving lots of kisses.

Tsula gets along very well with her foster brothers and is completely dedicated to her person. She really loves the backyard keeping the perimeter safe from lizards and other intruders. She loves protecting her family and making regular rounds patrolling the back yard and protecting her people from those pesky lizards. She hasn’t caught one yet but as they say, “every dog has his day.”

Tsula comes running when called and gets very excited when everyone comes home. She is very dedicated to her person, but is friendly with everyone that comes to visit.

Tsula is mostly housetrained and will let you know when she wants to go out. She loves the freedom of the backyard and if she goes outside every couple of hours her house training is fantastic. She knows how to walk on a leash, but she doesn't really like it. It can take some time for her to do her business when on a walk.

Tsula enjoys playing but she prefers just being petted and getting belly scratches. Foster Dad says Tsula is quite a kisser and will give kiss to everyone. He also says Tsula will quickly steal everyone’s heart and wants her to find that perfect forever family who will love her forever.

Please note: Because of TsuTsu's small size, she cannot be placed in a home with children under the age of 14 years old.

UPDATED BIO 05/06/2015: Tsula (called TsuTsu by her Foster Parent), had her dental and spay yesterday. She is recuperating as expected; however, during her dental, as several teeth were being extracted, the vet discovered that TsuTsu had debris (a stick, she thinks) that was wedged between her teeth on the roof of her mouth - ouchie! After removing this stick, a hole was seen in the hard palate that allows communication between the oral cavity and nasal cavity. This is called an oronasal fistula. The vet tried to repair the hole, but was unsuccessful in closing it completely due to the lack of available tissue. It is possible that Tsula may need to see a specialist (dental or surgeon) for a surgical repair. If the oronasal fistula is not repaired, she may have problems with food or water getting into her nasal cavity.

This finding explains why she has been sneezing so much. TsuTsu will go back in 10 days to see if the repair done during her dental will be sufficient to close the hole left by the stick. Poor little girlie must have been in so much pain, and this is why she is a bit underweight ~ it probably hurt her a lot to eat. It appeared that the stick had been there for a long period of time........so sad.

INITIAL BIO 05/04/2015 Tsula (or as she is being called more commonly, TsuTsu) is a lovely calm little girl who was picked up as a stray and surrendered to UYR by a good Samaritan. TsuTsu has not had constant care of any sort. She is a tiny bit underweight, and it appears that she may lose all of her teeth which were neglected by the prior owner so that no infection from the bad teeth will cause further problems.

TsuTsu came into rescue with an upper respiratory tract infection which gives her a cold in her nose and makes her sneeze and sneeze. TsuTsu is very quiet and reserved indoors so far, but outside she's a hunter and loves to explore the backyard. She gets along very well with her foster brothers and sister except for the whole puppy thing from Foster Dog Mila. TsuTsu thinks the puppy energy is very over- rated and she's not afraid to scold her younger foster sister Mila to make her go away and leave her alone. TsuTsu is scheduled back at the vet in just a couple days to have her dental and long overdue spay. As soon as she can, she will update everyone on her situation. but right now she's all stopped up and can't stop sneezing. Bless her heart. Could your home be the right one for TsuTsu?

Please note: Because of TsuTsu's small size, she cannot be placed in a home with children under the age of 14 y/o.

ALSO NOTE: TsuTsu's dental will be expensive, so donations are being accepted to help with the of removing her severely neglected teeth. :( Puppy Kisses from TsuTsu as she will feel sooo much better when her mouth doesn't hurt as much.

Candy
Illinois
Candy

Candy is a beautiful little 6 year old, 5 pound female Yorkie who is being fostered in Park Beach, IL

THANK YOU TO CANDY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Nancy Stanley, Holly Stavis, Holly Stavis, Luz Soto

Initial Bio 06/30/15: Candy is a beautiful little 6 year old female Yorkie who came to us at United Yorkie Rescue on June 27th. She was a breeder release and was probably used only for breeding and not as a pet so she is very scared and nervous. Any loud noises make her jump with fear. I have no doubt with loving and affection, she will come around. She wants to trust and come up with the other dogs for petting and rubbing but walks about half way up and then backs away and lingers at a distance only watching the other dogs. I can pick her up but she will not come to me. She will lie on my lap and sleep while I gently pet her. I don’t think it will long before I gain her trust.

Her weight is around 5 pounds so she is tiny and frail. It would probably be best if she had a home with no small children who could pick her up and accidentally drop her.

She gets along well with other dogs but I’m not sure about cats since she has not been around them that I am aware of.

Candy loves to be outdoors on warm sunny days so a fenced in yard is a must. She already checked the perimeter of my fence looking for ways to escape but she was unsuccessful. She is microchipped in the event she would get lost, but we hope we never have to go there as many dangers exist outside the home environment for these tiny ones.

I put Candy and her foster sister, Mandy in the play pen at night and they both cuddle down into their beds and sleep all night. She has accidents in the house once in a while but I think it is because she might have been caged quite often and not properly housebroken. She will do her business outdoors but she won’t let you know when she needs to go out. We are working on that as well.

Candy is a delightful little lady, very small and dainty. I know she will be the ultimate little love bug given time with plenty of love and affection.


To date we've spent $220.00 on Candy's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $42.00 in donations.

Cleo

Cleo

Cleo is an 8 pound, 12 year old girl who is being fostered in Shiloh, IL

THANK YOU TO CLEO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Nancy Stanley, Nancy Monfre, Nancy Monfre

07/01/15 Update: It's Cleo here with another pupdate! I am still hanging out with foster mom in Shiloh, IL. I recently had my kidney levels checked again and we got the great news that my levels are so much better! This is a result of a strict diet, good vet care, and foster mom giving me lots of fluids on a regular basis. As a reminder, I am almost 12 years old, housebroken, very sweet and snuggly, spayed, UTD on shots, HW negative, and looking for a calm, quiet home with no young dogs or children who want to play with me. I am just looking to hang out, relax, and be a couch potato most of the time, although I do enjoy a very short walk for fun. Ideally, I would love a stay at home/retired parent who has lots of time to spend with me. I don't really need a fenced yard because I don't like to hang outside much, but I must have a family who can commit to regular vet visits for my kidney checkups, maintaining my strict diet, and giving me home fluids every couple of days to keep me as healthy as possible. If you need a new friend like me in your life, please contact my foster mom at resqdogs2@yahoo.com with any questions, or fill out an application to adopt me at www.uyr.us!

Update 05/26/15: Hi everyone, it's me, Cleo reporting from Shiloh, Illinois. I'm sorry I haven't written in so long. We've had lots going on here. I've had a couple different tests since last time; one to see if I had something besides kidney disease, but that came back negative. I also got more kidney level labs & they were elevated. We will have to get them again soon & keep a close eye on them. I'm still on my prescription food & doing better with eating since I've been getting fluids. You'd never know I was having kidney problems by looking at me, because I'm so happy & sweet. I love to snuggle, lay in laps, sleep in bed, & follow everyone everywhere. I'm also housetrained, despite my condition. I will need a very special home that will have the ability to care for me as my condition progresses, keep me on a strict diet, & who has a quiet loving home. If that's you, please email my foster mom or fill out an application to adopt me on our website.

Update 04/02/15: 4/1/15: Cleo came to UYR with her sister Honey Bee when her owner had to give them up due to a changing family circumstance. When Cleo went in for her dental, her bloodwork showed elevated kidney levels. Since we do not know how long this condition had been going on, she has been put on a restricted diet and we will repeat her labs in a month to get a better idea of where she stands as far as her kidney failure. If she is to be adopted after her follow up labs, she must have a stay at home parent, remain on her vigilant diet, and she would like a quiet home with no kids and no young dogs to bother her. Cleo loves to lay in your lap, sleep on pillows and in her doggy bed on the bed. She is just looking for a very loving, quiet home where she can sleep most of the day away. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email Cleo's foster mom.


To date we've spent $716.52 on Cleo's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $190.54 in donations.

Lacey
Illinois
Lacey

Initial Bio 09/08/15 - Hi everyone. I just arrived to UYR yesterday. I'm being fostered in Shiloh, IL. I'm 6 years old and a was a breeder mom in the mill my whole life. I'm now spayed, UTD on shots, heartworm negative, and trying to learn what it's like to be a family member instead of just making puppies for a profit. I'm actually very sweet, love to give kisses and be held, and am very attention seeking. However, I still have some puppymill qualities, such as not being house trained and being hand shy. Also, the breeder did treat me very badly because I am extremely afraid of being touched near my neck and will yelp if you do so unless you touch another part of my body first and slowly move your way there. Foster mom can only assume I was frequently roughly picked up by the neck and/or thrown by the neck frequently to make me so afraid of being touched there. For my adoptive family, this means a few things...unfortunately, no small children in my adoptive home, and a very sensitive, experienced groomer will be required who will be aware of my situation. I get along well with the other small dogs in my foster home, but I can get scrappy over food or bones, so should be watched closely at feeding time and with treats. Only homes with an extremely secure fenced yard will be considered as I am a flight risk, and preference will be given to local adopters. Please contact my foster mom with any questions.

Lulu
Illinois
Lulu

Lulu is a sweet, 1 year old yorkie mix with a fluffy tail. She weighs 10 pounds but is underweight for her size. Lulu is being fostered in northeastern Illinois

Initial Bio 08/20/15: Lulu is an adorable and loving little 1 year old Yorkie mix. She gets along well with children, and other dogs, but has not been around cats that we are aware of. Lulu likes people but is a little shy at first meeting them and does not want to petted on her head until she gains your trust. She will cuddle up next to you on the floor or sofa and loves the pepperoni treats.

Constant barking was the reason of surrender but I have not experienced this with her. I believe she just wants to be with people as she follows me all over the house. The constant barking could have been the result of her being separated from family by being closed off by herself or something of that nature.

She goes to the patio door and scratches to go out but she is not completely house broken. She walks very well on a leash. Being a young dog, Lulu is very high energy and active so daily walks are essential.

Lulu is about 10 pounds and on the skinny side. She has slightly longer legs than most Yorkies and a longer body but has the coloring and markings of the Yorkie breed, but is still a small dog. I believe she will make a great addition to a loving and caring family who has the patience to work with her as she is still a puppy and learning new things.

Shots and vaccinations are up to date and Lulu has been spayed and microchipped. Lulu is currently living with her foster mom, Donna Leggett in Beach Park, IL.

Anyone looking for love, Lulu is your little lady! She is looking for her furever home where she can go for walks, play, cuddle up, and enjoy her new family.

Maalika
Illinois
Maalika

Maalika is 6-7 yrs old and weighs 8 lbs. She is being fostered in Canton, IL

THANK YOU TO MAALIKA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Nancy Carlson, Irene and Peter Havas, Jessica Gagel

Update 06/20/15 Maalika has been with us a week now. Her puppy mill days making litter after litter of puppies has taken a toll on her trust of humans. She doesn't like the outdoors at all either. She has started sitting on the couch with the rest of the gang but wants no part of sitting on anyone's lap. She will sit quietly and let you pet her if you don't get too close. She is such a sweetheart I am hoping she can find a home with some one patient & loving. She really needs a fenced in yard as she doesn't like walking on a leash. She would be a flight risk until she got used to her surroundings. If you have lots of time and patience and a quiet home Maalika might be the girl for you.

Initial Bio: Meet Maalika! She is 6 years old and weighs about 8 lbs. She just arrived yesterday (6/13), so we don't know much about her yet. She does love the other dogs, but is not as comfortable with humans yet. Being a breeder release it is doubtful she has had much human contact. She does seem to be a sweet girl and not aggressive at all. I'm sure as soon as she feels more comfortable she will relax.


To date we've spent $775.84 on Maalika's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $95.00 in donations.

Princess

Initial Bio 07/29/15: Hi all. I'm Princess & I was recently rescued from a life of breeding. I'm 7 years old, and being fostered in Beach Park, IL. I'm quite plump & I need to be on a diet & get some exercise because it's really not good for my health to be so overweight. Just like people, it's bad for my heart & knees. I'm a little hand shy at being picked up, but I love to give kisses. I'm very sweet & warm up fast...just try to get away from me after the first day, I'll follow you everywhere! I love attention, so I hope to find a family that will give me lots, but I probably would do better without small children. I just started working on my potty training, so need some patience with that. I'm spayed, up to date on shots, just had a dental, & am microchipped. Contact my foster mom atdonna_leggett118@yahoo.com for more information.

Stevie

Stevie

Stevie is a 5 year old 10 pound male Yorkie being fostered in Canton, IL. Stevie is a special needs boy who is blind

THANK YOU TO STEVIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Irene and Peter Havas, Nancy Stanley

Initial Bio 08/03/15: Stevie has a cataract on one eye & the other eye has been damaged by abuse or trauma. He was found on a very cold winter day wandering around with no fur from either a skin condition or fleas. So far as his foster mom I can say he is a very sweet boy. He is already navigating the house and yard very well. He loves sitting on the couch & does well on a leash. So far it seems he is house trained. Stevie will see the vet tomorrow to get his vaccinations updated and his eyes checked. If anyone needs a couch buddy Stevie might be the boy for the job.


To date we've spent $808.57 on Stevie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $40.00 in donations.

Tootsie
Illinois
Tootsie

Initial Bio 07/21/15: Meet Tootsie! She is 9 months old and weighs 8 lbs. Tootsie was surrendered by her elderly owner who is moving and cannot take Tootsie with her. Tootsie is healthy, spayed, and up to date on her vaccinations. She is sweet and loves to give kisses. She loves playing fetch and has a lot of puppy energy. She gets along well with other small dogs and does not mind children. She is crate trained and working on house-training. Tootsie is used to getting frequent walks throughout the day and would do best with someone who is home most of the day to be with her. An experienced dog owner is required because Tootsie's former owner did not do much in way of training her and although she is only 9 months old, she has a lot of catching up to do. If you have the perfect home for Tootsie please complete an adoption application!

Buckley
Iowa
Buckley

Buckley is a 3 year old Yorkie Lhasa male being fostered near Des Moines, IA

Update 07/13/15: Hello my name is Buckley, I am a half Yorkie and Lhasa Apso, which is why I have these big beautiful eyes. I am looking for a forever family who will let me love them for as long as I live. I really love kind children, the kinder the better. I have only a few issues I would like to share. If my family needs to go on trips without me, I would not do well being put in a kennel, having me stay with someone you know will treat me well is the only option that will insure I don't have a horrible time.

I am potty trained, however if you are going to gone for several hours I will need a belly band because my bladder is not that big. I have been getting a lot of kisses from my foster mom, and have come to enjoy that very much, along with being told how wonderful I am. I enjoy car rides (except to the vet).

I am 3 years old, I have been neutered (without asking to be) I am updated on all my shots, and today had a complete blood panel done. I am in very good health. I was really skinny when I moved in with my foster family, but have put on 2 pounds, and I'm feeling much better. I enjoy being brushed, and do very well being groomed.

If you are looking for a perfect addition to your family you should ask to meet me.

Sincerely, Buckley

6/25/15 It was discovered after his transport, that Buckley has kennel cough. He is on medication and we hope he'll be well soon so he can be groomed. He is very attached to his foster mom and cuddles with her as much as he can.

6/23/15 Buckley (formerly Lucky) was surrendered by his family because they were moving. He is a sweet boy who loves his treats. He rides nicely in the car, has lived with other dogs and a cat and appears to be housetrained. Please watch for more updates on him as he settles into his new foster home.


To date we've spent $84.70 on Buckley's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $10.00 in donations.

Bambi
New Jersey
Bambi

Initial Bio 06/24/15: Bambi’s was found early this March off Highway 74 in North Carolina running in and out of traffic with noticeable wounds from being hit by a vehicle, and ribs that could be easily counted from being starved. Bambi was taken to a local High Point vet for identification, but no one knew her and she was not chipped. The High Point police were notified, but no one was looking for her. Bambi has been boarded since that day at the Animal Hospital of Clemmons. Bambi is up to date on shots and recently spayed – all she needs is a patient and loving home because she will need to be house trained and taught some basic commands – these behaviors are difficult to learn in a boarding environment. Bambi is a very happy, high energy, 36 pound bundle of joy who loves everybody and everything!!

Mikey

Mikey

Mikey is a sweet 10 year old, 10 pound Yorkie who is being fostered in Fulton, NY.

THANK YOU TO MIKEY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Nancy Stanley, Irene and Peter Havas

Update 06/03/15: Mikey has had his neuter and his few remaining teeth pulled so he'll be feeling much better soon. He is a sweet boy who loves attention, is very talkative, walks well on a leash and gets along with other dogs. Mikey does have a heart murmur which is managed with a generic daily medication. He will need to be on this medication for life, but it is not at all expensive. Mikey is a happy boy with a personality that will make him an excellent family member for a special family.

pdate 05/14/15: Mikey is a sweet male Yorkie mix who was just rescued from a shelter in New York. He is estimated to be at least 10 years old and is crate trained and housetrained. He is a talkative, playful little guy who walks well on a leash and loves the outdoors. Mikey needs to be neutered and have a dental before he can be adopted out. When off leash with other dogs Mikey greets politely and will approach other dogs to sniff but spends most of his time exploring his surroundings. He is a sweet and gentle dog who would be a wonderful companion.

Initial Bio 5/10/15 Mikey was a stray taken into Animal Control in New York. Watch for more info on him.

Coco
Texas
Coco

Initial Bio 06/18/15: Coco is a Yorkie-poodle mix who was rescued from an abusive home where her leg was broken and she was underfed. Coco is an amazing dog. She has become completely adjusted to her better life, and her leg has healed after surgery to correct the break. The person who rescued her is young, and cannot keep her. Coco is 18 months old and house trained. She became very attached once she knew she was safe and loved. She loves other dogs, loves to run, and stick her head out of the car window when riding. We think she would do best in a home where one person is at home a good portion of the day, or not gone for long stretches. She has had the occasional accident in the house, but that is when she is alone for six hours or longer while her rescuer is at work. Coco is very sweet and so loving. Can you find room in your heart and home to give this precious girl a forever home? Coco is currently in Austin, TX.

I've Been Adopted!

Lacy
Texas
Lacy

Lacy is a sweet 8 pound, 10 year old Yorkie who is being fostered in Round Rock, TX

THANK YOU TO LACY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Karry Rogers, Melinda Tomas, Irene and Peter Havas

Initial Bio 08/21/15: Sweet Lacy was surrendered to the San Antonio shelter with her sister, Macy. Both girls were used for breeding. Lacy is a wonderful little girl, and considering she wasn't socialized or taken very good care of, she is a great little dog. She is fairly shy, and really doesn't like loud noises, such as the hair dryer, or vacuum. But, she is a real snuggler; she wants to be right with you wherever you go. She is like a second shadow and would love a calm forever family that wants to love and cuddle her! She really isn't very interested in toys. Lacy walks well on a leash, but you have to watch her when you open doors. She's very sneaky and will try to escape if you are not paying close attention to her!!

Lacy is starting to get the hang of going potty in the yard. She will always go outside with the foster brothers and sisters, but she won't go out by herself. She also hasn't completely learned that outside is the only place she should 'go'. Lacy doesn't like to be left alone and she will cry, and does bark on occasion, but is getting more and more used to her foster family. She is also very polite when she takes a treat. Lacy feels safe in her crate. She will often go into her crate and sleep when it is in the room with the door open.

Sadly, due to the neglectful care Lacy and Macy received most of their lives, Lacy is also Heartworm Positive. She is beginning a long road of treatment, which will be costly. At the end of it, she will also be needing a dental because her teeth are not in good condition either. Lucky Lacy is with UYR now, and preparing for her forever home once she is back to good health. Her medical bills will be high, and any donation is one that will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!


To date we've spent $764.63 on Lacy's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $120.00 in donations.

Macy is a 11 pound, 10 year old little girl who is being fostered in Round Rock, TX

THANK YOU TO MACY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Connie Peters, Irene and Peter Havas, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Jan Freeman, Cynthia Duranti

Initial Bio 08/20/15: Macy was rescued from the San Antonio shelter after being dropped off with her sister, Lacy, by a breeder. Macy was spayed at the shelter, and found to be Heartworm positive. It's sad that she had so many years of her health being ignored. She is an absolute sweetheart despite all this. Macy loves being a couch potato, but is still a little skittish when you reach out to pick her up. She doesn't really like to be held, but will walk over and crawl on your lap! Macy likes her treats, and takes them very nicely. She will walk on a leash, and is working on potty training. She just hasn't had anyone before this be concerned about it, so it is taking her a little time. Macy has some serious medical bills ahead, but this wonderful little girl is getting her chance at a happy ever after. Please help Macy by donating toward her expenses; we will be very grateful. Thank you!

Roxy
Texas
Roxy

Roxy is a beautiful 4 pound, 10 year old girl being fostered in Round Rock, TX

THANK YOU TO ROXY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Daniel Champion, Helen Wenzl-Klingensmith, Barbara Carvalho, Patty Disaphanurat, Carlos Zarur, Anne Faasse, Amber Menzie, Dennis Sepulveda, Tenile Luttenegger, Maria Flores, Karry Rogers, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Lynda Slipetz, Charlene Callicoat, Barbara Rodriguez, Cheryl Scrupski, Violet Gong, Josephine Nunes

Initial Bio 09-02-15: Roxy was pulled from a local shelter after she had been dumped. The story was that she had been found along the side of the road, but in reality she wasn't wanted any more. She was taken to one shelter who promptly shipped her off to another because it wasn't within their jurisdiction. Poor little girl has obviously been ignored for many years. She is about ten years old, and weighs in at exactly 4.0 pounds. She feels much lighter, and I predict she will be after her surgery.

Roxy came to UYR with a lot of mammary tumors, as well as a rectal tumor. She had one tooth, and it was loose. Her nails were so long, they were curled under, those that weren't broken off. The scar on her abdomen didn't seem like a spay scar; the vet suspected, and confirmed, it was a scar from a c-section to get puppies. This poor little one was discarded when she was of no further use as a breeder. It's just amazing how very sweet she is, considering all she has been through.

Roxy went right into surgery today, and the visible tumors weren't even the biggest of her problems. Once the vet got started, he discovered a mass that was 1.5" by 3" in her uterus! So big for such a tiny little pup. There was another mass in a different part of the uterus as well. They're all gone now! Roxy had her complete left mammary chain removed, and two very large lumps on her right side as well. Her one remaining tooth was also removed. She is resting overnight and will come home tomorrow afternoon to recuperate.

Roxy came through the surgery like a champ, but will need some follow up care and lots of prayers that the mass is not cancer. If you can help with any of this sweet girl's expenses, please donate. We will be very grateful. She's another example of the great work UYR does for these neglected babies. Thank you!

Check out thisKing Louie Video.

Update 08/29/15: Hi everybody! King Louie here, I'm on my way to Wisconsin, can you believe it!! I feel kind of sad that I couldn't stay with my foster mom in Indiana, but I understand that things came up where it makes it impossible for her to take care of me. The great news is, I'm available for adoption!! I would love to be your best friend. I only weigh about 10 pounds and putting me in my wheelchair is really easy. I can do you mise all over the yard in my chair. Foster mom told me I needed to slow down so I didn't tip over, I have to be more careful. I would love to have somebody who's home during the day to help me empty my bladder. Because I don't have feeling in my back legs, I need somebody who can help me go to the bathroom. It's really easy , You just express my bladder and then I don't have accidents in the house! Isn't that great :-). A lot of times I just wear a belly band or a diaper while I'm in the house. I don't mind because I'm such a good boy. I will follow you from the laundry room to wherever you're going as many times as you want to make that trip. my foster mom always laughed and said I was her little Velcro dog who would make 50 trips with her doing the laundry. LOL! So if you think you have a great house for me and maybe a backyard where I could get some exercise, please fill out an application I would love to come to your house and meet you!

Update 06/15/15: King Louie is getting around much better now that he has his cart to help him. He loves it and absolutely flys in it!! He is currently in therapy to try and regain use of his back legs but so far he has made progress but not enough to say that he will fully walk again. We are going to continue therapy and hope for a miracle for King Louie. He currently doesn't like to go potty in his cart so his goes potty in his kennel. He also has accidents when he gets excited. He does great with his fur brothers and sisters but he does not like cats. The doctor thinks he will do better in a home as an only dog so he can get as much attention as he can. He loves to be loved on and spoiled rotten. He just wears a belly band in the house incase he gets excited so he doesn't go potty inside he doesn't mind it at all. If you would like to make King Louie apart of your family please fill out an application online at uyr.us. If you have any questions please feel free to ask us. He might be in a wheel chair but that doesn't slow him down any!!

Initial Bio 04/13/15: King Louie is a 4 year old, 10 lb. male Yorkie who was sadly left at a shelter by his owners who no longer wanted him because he does not have use of his back legs. UYR stepped in and rescued this guy. Our hope is to raise enough money to get him a mobility cart so he can get around with ease. King Louie is in loving hands now and UYR plans to take great care of him and find him a wonderful forever home!

Initial Bio 06/19/15: Hi Everybody! Im Marsha, but my foster mom calls me Lily. Just like my friend Cat (Rosie), I didn't have a very good life before this. I started out in Missouri at a puppymill so no one really knows how old I am. My job was to have as many puppies as I could. I was a good mom - I sure do miss my puppies. When I got to Rescue, they took me to the Dogtor to help me feel better. I had surgery so I cant have any more puppies, I got my teeth fixed, and they gave me medicine for my eye. The nice Dogtor told me that I have an ulcer that could possibly get better. For now, I just sit very still when it is time for my medicine since I know it is helping me not be in so much pain. When I got here, I had a little seizure during my bath. Then I had another one on Monday so my FM took me to see the Dogtor here in Madison, WI. They ran some tests and found that everything was perfect. They think that I am very stressed out from all the changes. I love people, but you have to go slow with me; sudden movements make me scared. Well, that's all for now! It was nice to meet you!

Here's my info:

- SBY (single, black and silver Yorkie)

- 7.4 lbs

- about 7 years old

- Interests include sitting on your lap, and hanging out.

- Adoption fee - $350

- Near Madison, WI

If you want to meet me - please fill out an application!

FM here.... Marsha (Lily) is a very sweet dog. She has behaviors like most Puppy Mill dogs. She is not used to a lot of movement so will startle easily. Although she is afraid, she would rather sit on your lap and get attention than to cower in her cage. When Lily first arrived, it was very easy to see that she spent years in a wire cage. Her pads have chronic irritation and because she was so badly matted, they had to shave off most of her hair. She does shake a lot, but that is due to the shock of not having hair. Right now, Lily wears a sweater to help her regulate her temperature. Although Lily is 7.4 pounds, she is a bit heavy and should be around 6.5. With a better diet, she will likely reach that weight without any other restrictions. Lily is up-to-date on her shots and will be ready for adoption in a few weeks after her eye heals. If you are interested in adopting her, please fill out an application. Thanks for supporting United Yorkie Rescue!

Peanut

Peanut

Peanut is a 15 pound, 3 year old girl who is being fostered in Oak Creek, WI. Peanut has some anxiety issues which we are working to correct. She needs a stay at home owner who is able to keep her active.

THANK YOU TO PEANUT'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Theresa Cardona

Updated 6/27/2014 Hi, Peanut is my name and I'm looking to adopt a new owner. Don't let the name Peanut fool you as I'm a healthy 14.9 lb. 3 year old smart and self -assured Yorkie mix girl looking for a new owner. I have a hardy appetite and love to go for long walks. You can rough it up with me when we play. I like nothing better than to have my foster mom throw my toys so I can run and fetch them. And there's nothing like a good tug of war with my pull toy. Although soft toys are out of the question as I like to shred them up. I can't help myself when it comes to plastic bags or paper left laying around or in my reach I just have to shred them up to bits too. I guess I'm into recycling but I am learning and trying to curb my enthusiasm. I don't like to be penned up or put in a crate either I'm just too outgoing for that. Another habit that I'm working on is to stop licking the bottom half of doors I think it might be like nail biting in humans. Don't ask why I do that it's just a habit I picked up along the way. I am working on trying to stop though. I try and be a good girl and go outside when it potty time but sometimes I have accidents. My foster mom said I'm getting better at it though. I'm good around other dogs and children and I love to sleep in bed at night with my foster mom. I also like to nap on any available human lap or snuggle up next to a human body but please don't move your feet to fast and startle me if I'm sleeping cause I've been known to nip. So if your a human looking for exercise and some mental stimulation then I'm the gal for you.

Penny
Wisconsin
Penny

Initial Bio 08/26/15: Penny is a very special girl who, up until now, lived a life in a puppy mill in Missouri. She is only 5 years old but her eyes and body make her look much older. Her foster mom thinks she is a Yorkie mixed with a Dachshund—a Dorkie. She has obviously lived a very hard life and her foster mom is so happy she has finally found freedom. With love, a warm bed and good food, she is going to be even more beautiful before we know it!

She was put into a shelter in June and thankfully arrived in her foster home last Saturday. Penny weighs about 7.2 lbs. which is about half of what she should weigh. Penny is anemic and has some other concerning blood work so her foster mom and the dogtor are trying to find what is going on with this sweet girl. She is being fed fresh food every 4 hours, is on an antibiotic and is receiving supplements. She will go in each week for a weight check and her blood work will be rechecked in about 3 weeks. Once she gains some weight she will be spayed and receive a dental.

Since arriving, Penny has learned to climb stairs and is walking nicely on her leash. She likes to follow her foster mom around the house and enjoys snoozing in her office while she’s working. She gets along well with the other dogs in the house and loves treats! Surprisingly, she enjoys toys which have treats hidden in them. As a puppy mill survivor, Penny isn’t house broken yet. Foster mom is working hard to get her to go potty outside. Penny has only been with her foster family a few days so they are still learning about her.


To date we've spent $321.31 on Penny's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Rocky
Wisconsin
Rocky

UPDATE: Mr. Rocky visited his awesome vet today (Thank you Dr. Julie), and Rocky is in tip top shape. He is now up to date on vaccinations, he has been micro chipped and he is perfectly healthy. Dr. Julie agrees that Rocky is just the best dog, we've decided he is a real "gentleman". As previously indicated, Rocky was surrendered due to occasional urination inside the house. We've been diligent in taking Rocky outside every two hours or so to get him used to going outside regularly. I truly believe Rocky has the ability to hold as long as he is regularly taken out. Rocky is used to living with boys between 2 and 18, but he has quickly bonded to Foster Mom. He has shown mild, passing interest in the 9 month old human who visits our house. Rocky gets along great with our male Yorkie, although our 4# female has startled him a couple of times with an out of the blue shriek (her issue, not his). Rocky almost never barks. He walks well on a leash, gives kisses here and there, and LOVES to ride in the car. Truly a wonderful Little Gentleman Yorkie. DOB is 3/7/2010, and he weighs 12.8#s. Rocky is being transitioned to a high quality dog food to ensure his healthy dietary future. Although not a pre-requisite for adoption, we would like to minimize the number of times Rocky's food is changed during this stressful time between families. Please consider whether you are willing to spend 15 to 25% more as compared to grocery store pet food in order to maintain consistency. Rocky needs some activity, but overall, he is happy hanging by foster mom and getting love.

Initial Bio 08/31/15: Hello Dog/Yorkie Lovers. I'm Rocky, aka Rock Star, and my Foster Mom tells me that I am, indeed, a Rock Star. Today is my first day with my Foster family, and they all seem really happy that I'm here. I miss my first family - which consisted of a Mom, Dad, 4 human brothers and a large canine brother, who likes to eat my food!. Unfortunately, I occasionally found a corner in the house to urinate in, and my family just replaced all the carpeting! They decided I might do better with a family that is less busy, and who can take me for walks regularly so that I learn when it is the right time to go and where the right place is. My First Mom says I didn't do it often, but it stressed her out. So now I'm part of United Yorkie Rescue! I hope to find my forever home soon, as I am really a loving boy who can't wait to bring smiles to your faces. Foster Mom Christine here. Rocky is absolutely the sweetest little guy. He was born in March 2010, and has always been with the family that got him as a puppy. He is about 12#s, and his ears are more droopy than most Yorkies. His teeth are in amazingly good condition for a 5 year old Yorkie. He barks far less than my male Yorkie. Truly a little love. He sleeps in his crate, and gets along very well with the other two Yorkies in the house. We will continue to monitor Rocky's urination habits, but so far, he has gone outside when we take him. I'm in love with this guy already. Such a sweetheart.

Snuffy
Wisconsin
Snuffy

Snuffy's eligibility for adoption is temporarily on hold. Please wait until we have addressed his behavior before submitting an application for adoption.

THANK YOU TO SNUFFY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Holly Huckabone

Update 7/10/15 Snuffy was owned by an elderly man who was unable to care for him properly. Snuffy was surrendered to UYR on July 4th. He is rail thin and since coming into rescue, has vomited after eating. He has an appetite but cannot hold his food down. He has been seen by a vet to try to determine the cause of this. Today the vet after observing Snuffy for the entire day now knows he has cervical Mega E, a condition similar to our Forever Ours pup, Evo. Snuffy needs to be held upright after eating for 30 minutes and will need a high calorie soft to liquid diet. Dogs with this condition are typically born with them, however it is also possible to be caused by trauma. Snuffy is fearful of strange men and will bite if he feels threatened by anyone. He is good with his foster mom, but not many others right now.


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