Gizmo
California
Gizmo CA (formerly Little Man)

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

THANK YOU TO GIZMO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

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

Update Bio. 11/14/16. Gizmo is a 10 to 15 year old senior being fostered in Los Angeles. He came to us with numerous health issues that have been addressed and treated. He is very hard of hearing due to chronic ear infections in the past ,and needs his ears cleaned once a week to keep the infections from coming back. He also has a heart murmur that needs to be monitored by a cardiologist every six months. He is a very quiet little guy who loves to be held and fetch little toys. He is 90% potty trained and loves to cuddle under the blanket right next to me at night.

Gizmo weighs only 5 pounds. If you are interested in adopting this little cuddle bug, follow the link below to complete an application.

Update Bio. 10/13/16. Gizmo is doing so much better since he recovered from his surgery. He has become so much more active since all his rotten teeth are gone. He loves to eat and will defend his food if someone gets too close to his food bowl. His ear infection was treated but he will need weekly cleaning of his ears for maintenance. Gizmo is nearly deaf. He does not hear his foster mom when she approaches and talks to him, so she has to be careful not to startle him.

It was decided that he will stay in his foster home in Los Angeles since the home in Fremont has too many stairs for this little guy. However, he is able to get up and down the doggie steps to the bed. Besides following his foster mom around, Gizmo loves to sleep. He will make a great lap dog, and he loves to be carried around.

We have no idea what his real age is. It could be anywhere between 10 and 15 years old. We don't know how this little, old guy ended up wandering the streets of Los Angeles, but we do know that he has been highly neglected all his life, Although, I do think he was familiar sleeping in his human's bed. He also seems to be potty trained. He does go outside and has hardly any accidents in the house.

If you find it in your heart to give this little guy a quiet home where he is just loved and can live the life he deserves, please fill out an application at uyr.us Due to his small size (5 pounds) no children under the age of 12 please.

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

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

Update Bio. 09/08/16. We went to the vet yesterday. Gizmo has a chronic ear infection. They cleaned out his ears, and I have to clean them every night before applying medication. He has a little hunched back which may be a little painful. We may try putting him on pain medication if his labs come back within normal limits. He may be as old as 14 or 15. His dental status Depending on the labs, a decision will be made regarding the next steps. Stay tuned for an update as test results come in. If interested in Gizmo, you may apply for adoption by following the link below. However, no decisions will be made regarding adoption until a plan of care has been put into place for Gizmo.

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

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

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

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

Update Bio. 11/14/16. I have never ever felt so pretty in my entire life! The last couple days so many people have been complimenting me and saying how great I look. My foster momma has said I look like a whole different dog. She took me to this thing they call the groomer. Man, I was a lil scared, but not as much as my foster sister. She is a wuss. Anyway, it was so worth it. I also went to the vet because after my dental, I still had sneezing fits. I am on antibiotics, but isn't anything serious. If that doesn't work, then I have sinuses..boo! Thanks. I am still ready and looking for my forever home . If you are interested in adopting me, follow the link below to complete an application.

Update Bio. 10/12/16: Hey all. Lulu here! So this last month has been a doozie! My foster momma took me to the vet to have my dental surgery done. As it turns out, all my teeth were bad and had to come out. No wonder I was feeling so terrible! Anyhow, now I am feeling so much better and am really enjoying my new wet food. It is so yummy. Also, just yesterday I discovered what the fuss was about all these toys laying around the floor was about. OMG! Are they the funniest thing ever! This whole time I was just walking by them. It is a lil hard to get a squeaky going with out any teeth but I am making it happen. My foster momma keeps telling me how awesome I am at going potty outside or on a pad. I haven't had any accidents! My skin is getting better now that I have medicated baths and should be all cleared up soon. I am so ready to go to my forever home! If you would like to adopt me, follow the link below to the application!

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

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

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

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


To date we've spent $934.95 on Lulu's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $200.00 in donations.

Maxwell
California
Maxwell

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

THANK YOU TO MAXWELL'S RESCUE ANGELS!

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

Update Bio. 12/01/16. Maxwell is a 10 year old, 5 pound Yorkie boy residing in Canyon Country, CA.

Little man just had his birthday and, although he had a great party, he was just a little sad that he didn't get his birthday wish for a forever home. For the life of us, we can not even imagine why this little guy is not in his new home yet. Well now Christmas is coming, and his only request is to be with his forever family. Who will be lucky enough to have him as their own? Email foster mom with any questions at RN4surgery@yahoo.com or follow the link below to compete an application for adoption. I hope you are the lucky one.

Update bio. 10/31/16. Little Maxwell is still waiting for his forever home. His 10th birthday is coming up on November 8, and he is hoping for a home of his own for his birthday. The perfect home for Maxwell would be a home with a playmate his size or as an only dog. He loves to play with squeaky toys, his friend Roxy, and go on walks. He will run down the stairs but has problems getting back up due to his previous injuries. He only weighs 5.4 pounds. Due to his small size please no children under the age of 12. If Maxwell sounds like the fellow for you, follow the link below to complete an application for adoption.

Update Bio. 09/25/11. Maxwell has a birthday coming up on 11/08, and his only wish is to find a home of his own where he will be spoiled for the rest of his life. Maxi's fractures healed and he is a very energetic young man. He loves to play with his foster siblings, especially with the puppy. He adores her, and she loves him. He is able to walk down the stairs without any problems but needs help getting back up. He can do two or three stairs but will look for help after that. He loves two go on walks, and we go for two miles at a time without any problems. I think we are ready to add one more mile since he does so well. He loves to lay next to his human on the couch and loves belly rubs. Max is up to date on vaccinations, neutered, and microchipped. He needs a quiet home with little to no people traffic, and due to his small size (5 and 1/2 pounds), no children under the age of 12 years old.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I am a very active and sweet little boy.

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


To date we've spent $2294.81 on Maxwell's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $2884.00 in donations.

Munchkin
California
Munchkin

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

THANK YOU TO MUNCHKIN'S RESCUE ANGELS!

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

Update Bio. 11/28/16. Hi again everyone!! Munchkin is doing so great. This month he got to work with a trainer and it is going so well. We work together every couple of days and he is learning "touch" and "go to the blanket" Touch is really easy for him and he loves all the treats and attention away from the other dogs. The trainer thinks that once we get his confidence up, he won't get so nervous when in a stressful situation. He has been doing better with meeting new people using the new approach implemented by the trainer. Now, it takes him less than a minute to feel comfortable with new people when he is introduced in the proper way. Munchkin is going to make a fantastic addition to his future forever home. Please email me with any questions and follow the link below if you are interested in adopting Munchkin.

Update Bio. 10/31/16. Munchkin is doing absolutely great!! He is the tiniest ball of energy I have ever come in contact with!! Thank goodness, his foster brother recently taught him the joys of TOYS!! When Munchkin first came to me, he had no clue what to even do with a toy, but once his foster brother was comfortable, he started pulling the toys out of the basket and showing Munchie how much fun they are! Because Munchkin's energy is so high, I would think he will do better in a home that has somewhat younger or more energetic dogs. I have a a senior who is blind and Munchie tries to get him to play by jumping all around him, and he wants nothing to do with it. Munchie does take it in stride though, he stops when I ask him to and moves onto the next thing. We are going to be working with a trainer shortly to work on his aversion to men and getting him more comfortable when meeting new people. Overall, Munchie is really just a ball of love and when I pick him up, he absolutely just melts into you because he loves the affection. Please email with any questions about this sweet boy! If you are interested in adopting Munchkin, please follow the link below to be taken to the application.

Update Bio. 9/30/16: Munchkin (or Munchie as I call him) is doing so well!! He had surgery yesterday to be neutered and is recovering like a champ!! He had his teeth checked also and the vet was so pleased with their condition that he doesn't even need a cleaning right now!! He loves to chew on his bones, so I'm sure that is definitely helping to keep his teeth healthy! Munchkin is absolutely full of energy. While he is submissive to the alpha dog in the house, he and his foster brothers play well together. He love to go for long walks and check out new places. Munchkin has been through a lot in his first three years and he does get nervous when he is meeting new people for the first time (especially men). He has to know he can trust you, but once he knows, he becomes your new best friend. He loves to cuddle both with the other dogs and with foster mom, in fact, he practically melts his body into yours when he is getting his evening pets.

Initial Bio 9/2/16: Hi everyone, My name is Munchkin. I weigh 8 pounds, which is probably a little on the thin side for me. I am a 3 year old Yorkie mix.

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

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


To date we've spent $245.90 on Munchkin's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $370.07 in donations.

Toto
California
Toto

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

THANK YOU TO TOTO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

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

Update Bio. 11/14/16. My skin is finally clearing up! That means I'll be one step closer to finally being able to find my forever home. I am not looking forward to my dental since all my teeth will have to come out ,but I am looking forward to all the soft food I will be eating from now on and treats my foster mom will give me to make me feel better. Hopefully, in a month or so I will be ready to be adopted just in time for the holidays! If you are interested in adopting me, you can go ahead and complete an application by following the link below.

Update Bio. 10/12/16: Hey all, Toto here! I am really getting along with all the foster sisters I currently have. All i want to do is be loved and get tons of treats. Treats are my favorite thing in the whole wide world. I spin around anytime foster momma goes for the yummy ones. I still need to be neutered and have a dental, but I have to wait until my skin clears up. My FM says one thing at a time. Hopefully, getting neutered will help to stop my marking. I know this is a bad habit, but I just can't help myself. I do know to go outside whenever its time to go potty, but every now and then I find my lil leg lifting to mark. FM bought a belly band to help with that. All in all, everything is great, and I love it here but can't wait to be ready to find my forever home. If you think you would be interested in me as your furbaby, follow the link below to complete an application.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Precious Angel
Florida
Angel

Angel is a sweet 12 year old, 7 pound Yorkie girl. This little angel is being fostered in Tallahassee, FL.

THANK YOU TO ANGEL'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Theresa Beament, John Sauser, Irene and Peter Havas in memory of Buddy, Vanessa and Pepe

Updated Bio 12/3/16 Angel is the sickest of the Operation Christmas Miracle dogs. She was seen by the vet yesterday. She is emaciated and in very poor condition. She has mammary tumors in every single mammary gland She will require a double mastectomy. Due to her small size and poor condition, this will need to be done in two separate surgeries. We will need to do one side, then wait a month or so before doing the other side to allow her time to recover. She has cataracts in both eyes, an eyelid condition called entropian, and ulcerations on her corneas. We arenít sure what (if anything) can be done for these conditions. She will need to be seen by a specialist to determine our next steps. Our biggest concern with Angel is that her tumors are addressed and hopefully will not be found to be malignant. Angel's care is going to be very costly. Please help us by contributing towards her care by clicking on the donate button below.

Angel is not yet ready for her forever home, but adoption applications will be considered.

Initial Bio 12/02/2016 Angel came to use from a hoarder case along with several other Yorkies. We have just received Angel into our rescue and she is seeing the Vet soon so that we can get an understanding of her needs. We do know that she is vision impaired and likely has mammary tumors that will need to be surgically addressed. Please stay tuned as we get to know Angel better.


To date we've spent $193.31 on Angel's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $105.00 in donations.

Beau
Florida
Beau

This is little Beau. He is only 7 pounds of cuteness. This 9.5 year old Yorkie boy is being fostered in The Villages, FL.

THANK YOU TO BEAU'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Meaghan Griffin

Initial bio 11/3/16: This adorable fellow is Beau. He was surrendered by his owner because she was unable to give Beau the time he needed to teach him the house training manners he lacked. She knew he needed to be with someone who would be home most of the day to work with him and make him the perfect pup she knew he could be. He is very sweet and loving. He loves people and is fine with older kids over the age of 14.

Beau is leash trained, crate trained, and does great in the car. There is so much more to find out about Beau, and his foster dad will be finding all there is to know about his personality and his needs for the perfect foster home. He will also be working with Beau on his house training. Beau will do his business outside, but not always, at least not yet.

There is just this one thing. Beau is missing his brother Jackson very very much. They had always been together, but due to circumstances they had to go to different foster homes. When they do get to see each other they are so happy they give each other kisses and more kisses. If you think it is in your heart to make it so they can be together again, that would be the greatest thing ever. Their foster parents said anyone who would want to adopt them together, and it is the right home for them, will be given priority consideration. Please considering adopting Beau and his brother Jackson so they can be be together again, and this time forever

Diesel
Florida
Diesel

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

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

THANK YOU TO DIESEL'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Lisa Prosen, Jean Moffitt, Scott Savlov

Updated bio 11-3-16 Diesel is the happiest fellow you could imagine. He is doing so well in his foster home, he just canít understand why no one wants to adopt him and give him his forever home. He has been waiting for a few months now to be someoneís special baby again.

Diesel is so sweet and so good. He would be the best friend you could ever imagine having. He loves to play fetch and he loves to cuddle up with his humans. In fact he is happiest when he is right in the middle of whatever his people are doing. He is almost fully house trained as long as there is someone around to take him out, especially right after eating.

All this perfection has one little issue. Diesel has a condition called Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency or EPI. This condition means that his pancreas does not make the enzymes necessary for food digestion. This is easily managed by a special diet and the addition of special enzyme power to his food twice a day. The enzyme and food cost very little, less than $30 a monthóthat is not even a dollar a day. That is so worth it for this wonderful, happy, friendly fellow.

Diesel is such a great dog and his needs are so minor compared to what he would give back in return. He is so friendly and happy and he would be fine with children over the age of 13. Please do not pass this fellow by. He will give you nothing but love and kisses and joy for years to come.

You can contact his foster parents at shall@catchthemquick.com if you have any questions. Make Diesel your own, you wonít ever be sorry.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Updated bio 8-2-16 Diesel is an 8 year-old, 10 lb. wonderful Yorkie boy. He is being fostered in Clearwater, FL.

Diesel lost his human momma when she passed away too soon. During his lifetime with her he was very well cared for and loved. The remaining family members were unable to keep him and asked United Yorkie Rescue for help finding Diesel his forever home.

Diesel is very playful and his favorite game is ďfetchĒ with his toys. He is also content to just lounge about during the hot Florida days, as long as his people are near by.

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

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

Diesel has a condition called Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency or EPI.

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

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

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

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

Updated bio 6-19-16 Diesel is an amazing 8 year-old, 10 lb. Yorkie male being fostered in Clearwater, Florida.

Diesel belonged to a woman who had him his entire life before she passed away. He was very well cared for and loved during his lifetime with her.

Frankie

Frankie

Say Hello to Frankie. This young, 2 year old adorable terrier mix weighs just 7 pounds. Happy, energetic Frankie is being fostered in Leesburg, FL.

THANK YOU TO FRANKIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Angelina Shmidt

Initial Bio. 11-07-16 Meet Frankie. This friendly, loving little guy was sadly surrendered by his family when they realized how unhappy he was being left alone for hours and hours each day. They knew he needed someone who was able to be with him more often, maybe have another young friendly dog or two to play with, and perhaps an older kid to be his best buddy and play with him because he has a lot of energy to spare. He would love an active family that would take him places and give him the time and attention this young fellow needs.

He has only been in his foster home a short while but his foster parents already know a few things about him. His tail has not stopped wagging yet, he is such a happy doggie. He is very playful, friendly, and loving. He has given kisses to everyone. He gets along great with the other dogs in the home and only wants to be their friend and play with them. He enjoys the fenced backyard and the great smells out there. He is fine in his crate and his foster parents were told he would sleep in his crate on his doggie bed all night. He did fine in the car in the doggie car seat, once he realized he couldn't sit on his foster mom's lap in the car. His foster parents were also told he is house trained, but not sure about that yet.

Frankie is up to date on all his vaccinations. He is in great health. He only needs to be neutered and then will be ready for his forever home. If you think you could give this young, happy, energetic pup his perfect forever home, please fill out an adoption application for him.

Jackson

Jackson

This is adorable, little Jackson. He is 6 pounds of cuteness. This 9.5 year old Yorkie boy is being fostered in The Villages, FL.

Updated bio 11-11-16 Hi, Itís me, little Jackson here Ė Well, Iíve been really busy getting settled in with my new foster family. I went to the dogtor the other day and she said I was in pretty good health. I do have a little arthritis in both my knees Ďcause my kneecaps have moved, but they really donít bother me too much. It sure doesn't slow me down. The dogtor said if they do start to hurt me I can have some arthritis medicine, but nothing needed for now. The rest of me is great (and handsome too, so Iím told). I try real hard not to do my business in the house. I make funny noises when I have to go out Ė Foster Mom says I whimper.

I love to sit on laps to be petted, and my foster parents even let me sleep with them (shush, donít tell anyone). I get along with everyone here - Bubba, a little guy just like me, Annie and Mattie, little girls a little bigger than me, and Bogie, a bird who keeps calling my name. Weird! Iím just a happy, quiet little guy who loves to be with people. I get attached to people very easily and Iím very loyal. Would you like to take me home? I promise Iíll make you happy and give you lots of love and kisses.

There is just this one thing. I am missing my brother Beau very very much. We have always been together, but he had to go to another foster home. When we do get to see each other we are so happy we give each other kisses and more kisses. If you think it is in your heart to make it so we can be together agin, that would be the greatest thing ever. My foster mom said anyone who would want to adopt us together, and it is the right home for us, will go to the head of the line, whatever that means. Please help me and Beau be together again, and this time forever.

Initial bio 11/3/16 This sweet, little fellow is Jackson. He was surrendered by his owner because she was unable to give Jackson the time he needed to teach him the house training manners he lacked. She knew he needed to be with someone who would be home most of the day to work with him and make him the perfect pup she knew he could be. He is very sweet and loving. He loves people and other dogs. Jackson is fine with older kids over the age of 14.

Jackson is leash trained, crate trained, and does great in the car. There is so much more to find out about Jackson, and his foster mom and dad will be finding all there is to know about his personality and his needs for the perfect foster home. They will also be working with Jackson on his house training. Jackson will do his business outside, but not always, at least not yet. So much more will be coming on Jackson.

Lambchop
Florida
Lambchop

Meet Lambchop. Lambchop is an adorable, slightly overweight Malti-poo. He is 4 years old. Lambchop is being fostered in Largo, FL.

Initial Bio 12-3-16Hi, itís me Lambchop. What I would really like from Santa is a new forever home where I will get lots of love and attention and I will be sure to give back love and kisses too. I sent Santa a letter to the North Pole and told him that I wouldn't mind a new brother or sister, but just one so that I can get the attention I love.

I had a really bad weight problem but I am slimming down nicely and would like a home with people who will take me on lots of walks and help me to lose just a few more pounds. I say I'm just more to love! I am on thyroid medication and allergy medication, but my thyroid medicine dose has already been lowered since I have lost over 5 lbs. Yipppeee. I will be going back for my checkup in a couple of weeks and hopefully get more good news.

My favorite things to do are going for walks, and if I get tired I go in my doggie stroller and just enjoy the scenery. When I go for walks and get tired, I will just plop down right there and not move until my foster mom asks me if I want to go in the stroller. Then I get up and run to it. I love to be outdoors in the fresh air whenever I can, even if it is my screened porch. I love to go on car rides too.

I like to play with other dogs and meet new people. I have lots of toys that I really have fun playing with, especially my monkey that has three squeakers in it!!! I walk on my hind legs. I can take about 5 steps like a fuzzy bear when I want to be picked up, go in the car, or when my foster mom puts my harness on. I can be a real ham.

I am pretty much house trained but I occasionally will have an accident in the house. When my foster mom goes to work I mostly go on the potty pad she leaves for me.

If you like to go on long walks and take me on car rides I would be so happy to be your very special boy. You have to keep me on my diet until I lose a little more weight so I can stay healthy and live for a long time. Please fill out an adoption application for me and make my Christmas wish come true.

Love, Lambchop

Lily

Lily

Sweet little Lily is an adorable United Yorkie Rescue Yorkie girl. She is 12 years old and weighs only 6.6 pounds. Lily is being fostered in North Port, FL

THANK YOU TO LILY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Danielle Shelly-Tabone

Updated bio 11-8-16 Lily is doing very well in her foster home. She is enjoying her foster fur siblings and loving the attention and love she gets from her foster parents. She loves to be cuddled and cared for. She is really a smart girl. She knows some commands like sit and lie down.

After a couple of blood tests it was determined that Lily is in early stages of kidney disease. She is eating KD food with one Azodyl capsule added on a daily basis. The food and the capsules are available at the vet. The KD food is no more expensive than any good quality food. The Azodyl capsules are less than a dollar a day. 90 capsules cost $70.00 and will last 3 months.

Since Lily has been on this special diet of KD food along with the Azodyl capsules, two of her levels are back to normal and one remains just a little high.

Lilyís foster mom loves to watch her run around in the backyard. She is such a happy, feisty little pup who hopefully has quite a few years left to live. The tumor on her skin will be removed in a few days, and then Lily will be ready to go to her furever loving home.

If you are looking for a companion and a cuddle bug to spend your days with and have the heart to take in an older girl who needs a place to rest her head for her remaining years, which could be more years than you think, please submit an adoption application for little Lily. Are you that special one that can give this sweetie her furever loving home?

Initial Bio. 9/28/16 Meet Little Lily. This adorable girl was being left alone for hours at a time while her former mom had to work. It was not Lily or her mom's fault that she was left alone for so many hours, but it was very sad. It was so wrong for this little senior girl to have to spend the day waiting and waiting for someone to come home to be with her and give her attention and love. It was hard for her former mom to give her the care she needed. She knew Lily needed to go somewhere where she can get the love, attention, and care she very much needed.

That is when a United Yorkie Rescue angel knew Lily had to become a United Yorkie Rescue dog. In the few days she has been with her foster parents she has received some much needed care. Her dry eyes are being cared for with drops and daily cleaning. She was updated on her vaccinations. The tumors on her skin will be removed in about two weeks, and then she will be ready for adoption.

Lily's foster mom said Lily is adapting very quickly to her foster home and her foster fur siblings. Lily even knows some commands like sit and lie down. She is really smart. She is very lively and full of life. She may be a senior, but she has the spunk and energy of a much younger dog. Don't pass this one by. If you are looking for a companion and a cuddle bug to spend your days with and have the heart to take in an older girl who needs a place to rest her head for her remaining years, which could be more than you think, please submit an adoption application for her. And if you can, please donate to the medical care she needs.

More to come on Lily so stay tuned.

Megan

Megan

Megan is a loving, adorable 10 year old Yorkie girl. She is a little too chubby 12 pounds. Megan is being fostered in Seminole, FL.

10-13-16 Updated bio: My name is Megan, and I am Bridgetteís, sister. My beloved owner didnít have time for me because he has a new job that took him out of town and he was away a lot. He thought the best thing to do was to contact United Yorkie Rescue because his dog sitter told him United Yorkie Rescue will find me a forever home that really means forever. My owner took really good care of me. I have everything Ė shots, a chip, a crate - everything but a forever home.

I am shy, though I am starting to warm up to my foster mom and dad. I like to eat and my foster mom and dad said I canít eat with my sister anymore because I eat my food real quick and then eat hers too. They said I am a porky yorkie, but maybe by feeding me separately and taking me for walks I will slim down. I am house trained, and I do go on a potty pad when no one is home and I have to go out. I am 10 years old, but donít worry about that. I have a lot of years left to love you. I donít play much like my sister and I donít like other dogs, I just like to be held and petted. Iíll tell you more after I settle in.


To date we've spent $99.00 on Megan's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $75.00 in donations.

Mikey
Florida
Mikey

This is Mikey. He is a little Yorkie boy. He is only about 4 years old and 7.5 pounds. He is being fostered in Orlando, FL.

THANK YOU TO MIKEY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

John Sauser

Initial Bio 11-15-16 This sweet, loving boy was abandoned and neglected until United Yorkie Rescue took him in. He was full of fleas. He has some hair loss on his back from the flea bites. He also has hard scabs from where fleas had already attacked him. He is now on antibiotics and flea medication. He should be fully recovered from this in a few weeks. Mikey is not yet neutered. He will need a dental and the rest of his vaccinations. That will happen pretty soon and by the beginning of the new year Mikey will be ready for his forever home.

Mikey has only been in his foster home a very short time, but his foster parents have already seen what a sweet, affectionate, cuddle pup he is. He loves to sit on their lap and give kisses. They believe he is house trained. He walks nicely on a leash and did great in the car. He will go into his crate, but would prefer to be with his people. He is getting along fine with his foster sister.

Mikey is just the cutest fellow ever. Wouldn't this special boy make the right family's New Year a very happy one?

Could that family by you?

Nemo
Florida
Nemo

Say Hi to Nemo. Nemo is a little Yorkie boy who is approximately 6-7 years old, He is a 9.5 pounds. Nemo is being fostered in West Palm Beach, FL.

THANK YOU TO NEMO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Irene and Peter Havas in memory of Buddy, Vanessa and Pepe, Nestor Sanchez, Edward Guise, Nestor Sanchez, Sandra Wendt

Updated bio 10-20-16 Nemo has no appetite issues and has gained some needed weight since he has been in his foster home. He now weighs 9.5 lbs., and we think this is a good weight for him. Nemo found himself at a local shelter and because of a neglected skin condition, was not able to be adopted out to the public, so UYR stepped up to help the little guy.

Nemo had been sick ever since he came from the shelter. He initially had kennel cough and a UTI. He is feeling better, but he still is drinking a lot of water, so we are going to have some further tests run on him. He went to the vet yesterday, and he is now on some oral medication to help with all the extra yeast rampaging his little body. He has been getting baths about 3 times a week, and we are beginning to see some improvement in the condition of his skin with some hair regrowth, though it will take time for his condition to fully improve. Nemo got a new shampoo and he is now on prescription food. We are hoping this will help him continue to heal.

Nemo still has a long way to go before he is ready to be adopted. Please keep checking back to follow his journey.

Nemo: Updated Bio 10/4/2016: Meet Nemo! Nemo is an approximately 5-7 year old Yorkie boy. He weighs a skinny 8.5 lbs. Nemo is being fostered in West Palm Beach, FL.

Poor little Nemo has been a very sick little puppy. He has a terrible yeast infection all over his body, which has caused his skin to thicken and the loss of hair on his body. To add insult to injury he picked up kennel cough at the shelter and has been curled up on the couch for almost 2 weeks. At one point he didn't want to eat for 2 days. However, with the help of Doxycycline antibiotics he is feeling much better. He actually played with a toy for the first time yesterday, and today was the first time he got off the couch to greet his foster mom when she came home. Originally the shelter thought he was maybe 7 years old, but a private vet thought he was younger since his teeth are in pretty good shape. It's hard to tell his age still, as he has been feeling so poorly he has not been acting very playful.

Nemo has been getting medicated baths every other day for his skin condition. Clearing it up is a very time consuming process and we still haven't seen much improvement, but it can take 2 to 3 months before he starts looking like the handsome Yorkshire Terrier he really is. Nemo is house trained, but right now he has a urinary tract infection. He is drinking a lot of water and urinating frequently, so that is causing him to have accidents in the house. We hope his accidents in the house are caused by the UTI and that when he is done with the antibiotics his potty habits will be back to normal. If they aren't, he will go back to the vet for more tests.

Nemo gets along with the other dogs in his foster home, though he does have some resource guarding and should never be left alone with food or bones if other dogs are present. So far he ignores the cats, but he also isn't feeling well. The optimal home for Nemo would be with adults, maybe a laid back dog of similar size, and older children are also okay. Nemo will not be ready for adoption until at least December, if not later.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Nina
Florida
Nina

This sweet very little girl is Nina. She is a tiny Chorkie (Chihuahua/Yorkie) mix. She is 7 years old and only 3.8 pounds. Nina is being fostered in Dunedin, FL.

THANK YOU TO NINA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Fay Rowland, Georgia Roode

Updated bio 11-19-16 Nina just arrived at her foster momís, so there is still lots to learn about her. We do know that she travels well in a car. She gets along great with other dogs too. She most likely has not seen a cat until recently. She wanted to make sure he (the cat) knew that she wasnít too sure about him, but she doesnít seem bothered by him now. She is rather underweight at just 3.8 lbs., so sheíll need to gain some weight before the vet will do her vaccinations, spay, dental, and any other needed surgery. Nina has a urinary tract infection that will need to clear up before the other vetting can be done as well.

Nina has some skin and hair issues that will need to be cleared up. She has a little balding on her skin and some red spots. She has two very small masses on her mammary sites. This is most likely due to her having had puppies and never being spayed. She is currently getting care for all these things.

Nina is a super sweet little gal who loves to be with her humans. She will sleep with the other dogs on the chair too. Nina just loves everyone. She doesnít seem to have a mean bone in her tiny body. Nina would make a great companion for someone who wants a lap dog to love on and to get love and kisses back.

Stay tuned for more information on sweet little Nina. If interested, we are taking applications for her now, but it will be a little while before she is ready to be adopted.

Initial Bio 11-17-16. Nina just arrived at her foster home. She is very sweet and friendly and seems to love everyone. Nina has to see the vet very soon and get all her vaccinations, a heartworm test, and a possible spay and dental. We will know a lot more about little Nina after her foster parents get to know her better and after her vet visit.

Stay tuned.

Rocky G. is a 12 year old Yorkie. He weighs 10 pounds and is being fostered in Miami, FL. Rocky has turned out to be such a special boy...but he still needs donations to help continue to pay for his eye medication and his surgery.

THANK YOU TO ROCKY G'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Updated bio 11-4-16 Hi Everyone! Itís me again, Rocky G.! Iím doing really great! Iím on my new food for my kidneys and thatís going pretty well. The stuff made me throw up at first, but Iím used to it now. The best part is that my eyes are SO much better! Iím on two different kinds of prescription drops that cost $150 together about every two months, and these help, but the BEST thing ever is my foster mom started putting extra virgin coconut oil in my eyes twice and day and this has made the biggest difference ever! I still donít see very well, but there hasnít been any recent talk about having surgery lately, so thatís a good thing since I can still see light and dark and some shadows.

Iím still doing really great with not using the house as a bathroom (I still donít understand why any dog would want to do that) and I really like being home. When we travel, Iím cool, but Iím always on the alert and donít relax too much. I like to sleep pretty much all day in order to conserve my energy because when my foster mom gets home, I like to glue myself to her side. I donít get weird if she has to get up and do other stuff, though (Iím not pushy), but I will sit up and listen for her until she sits down again. Boy, do I love it if sheís there and I can just lie next to her and get a nice pet and a scratch or two. I sigh deeply and snuggle in. Itís the best part of my day.

Anyway, gotta go, getting sleepy.

Love,

Rocky G.

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

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

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

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

Love you all, Rocky G.

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

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

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

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

Love you all, Rocky

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

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

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

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

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

Love, Rocky

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

Rocky

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Scruffy

Scruffy

Say Hello to Scruffy the adorable Yorkie Mix. Scruffy may be a Shorkie- a Shih Tzu/Yorkie Mix. He is 9 pounds and 8 years old. Scruffy is being fostered in Dunedin, FL.

THANK YOU TO SCRUFFY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Teresa Beament

Initial Bio 11-29-16 Scruffy just arrived at his foster home. Scruffy was just the perfect name for him. He was a matted dirty fellow who was in desperate need of a bath and a grooming. His foster mom said he didn't smell very good either.

It seems Scruffy was left abandoned by his family. A very nice lady took him in, but was unable to keep him and give him the care he badly needed. She contacted United Yorkie Recuse. We knew we had to get this baby and take care of him. And so Scruffy became a United Yorkie Rescue pup.

Scruffy's first visit, after arriving at his foster home, was to the groomer where he got a bath and a shave down. After his wonderful spa treatment, he made a trip to the vet. He needs all his vaccinations, a dental, and to be neutered. The vet said in spite of all that, he is a pretty healthy guy.

Scruffy has the cutest little over bite, which is why we think he may be a mix of a Shih Tzu and a Yorkie or a Shorkie. Although Scruffy just arrived his foster parents believe he housetrained. He gets along great with the other dogs in the home and has shown no aggressive behaviors towards them or anyone. He is very well behaved and has fit in with the pack nicely. He was very good at the groomers and at the vet. He rides very nicely in his crate in the car. He walks well on the leash. Scruffy seems to be a really good dog.

There is still a lot more to learn about Scruffy, but his foster parents think he would do well in a home with kids over the age of 12 and even another dog or two.

As soon is Scruffy has his vaccinations and dental and is neutered he will be ready for his forever home. If you are interested in this great little guy please fill out an adoption application for him.

Sparky

Sparky

Sparky is a spunky young puppy. This sweet Terrier mix is only 1 year old. Sparky weighs 18 pounds and would be a great family dog. Sparky is being fostered in North Port, FL

Updated bio 11-17-16 Sparky is a sweet 1-year-old Terrier mix. Sparky is surprised and canít understand why he has not yet found his furever home. He is a perfect doggie. Is it because he is a bigger dog at 18 pounds? But that would make him the perfect family dog. Sparky loves everyone, grown-ups, well-behaved children, and other dogs. Sparky loves to play with pups of all sizes. He ignores the cats and if a doggie is a bit aggressive towards him, he just gently walks away!! What doggie could be better than that?

Being a year old healthy pup he enjoys going for walks, running around, and also just planting himself on your lap. He is extremely sweet and loving. He loves to give kisses and hugs. Sparky is an active pup, so the perfect home would be one with another pup that he can play with!! He enjoys going for walks and greets all pups he sees as well as kids He also doesn't need to be groomed. He just needs a bath every so often. And he is so good in the bath. He is so good all the time!!

There isn't one thing that Sparkyís foster mom and dad can say about Sparky that isn't positive and good. If you feel you can give him a furever loving home, please go to unitedyorkierescue.org, and fill out an adoption application. You will not be sorry. Whoever adopts this great fellow will be a very lucky person or family. Any questions please email his foster mom at yorkieluv681@gmail.com

He is just ​the best​ big boy​ you will ever want to meet. Yes, he is a little on the bigger size @ 18 pounds of pure sweetness. ​Sparky is a young dog who is house-trained, loves to go for walks, and is a great eater and car rider. Sparky will sleep all night in his doggie bed or in his people's bed if they allow him to. However, the thing Sparky loves​ the most is​​ ​to play​,​ play​,​ and play with pups​ and people​ of all sizes.​ He gets along with everyone - dogs, cats, adults and kids. There is not anyone that Sparky meets he doesn't love and everyone who meets Sparky loves him back. ​

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Teddy Bear

Meet adorable Teddy Bear. He is a little Yorkie guy who weighs just 7 pounds. Teddy Bear is 7 years old. He is being fostered in Lighthouse Point, FL.

THANK YOU TO TEDDY BEAR'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Fay Rowland

11-19-16. Hi Again, It's me Teddy Bear. I went to the vet the other day and I got a bunch of shots. That was no fun, I tell you what. And I have to go back soon for something called a neuter and a dental and this thing about a testicle not dropping. Have to get all that fixed up before I can go to my forever home. So that will be happening next week. Also I have this infection, which may be why I have accidents in the house. I am on some medicine to help that. Once all that is taken care of I will be ready for my forever home. You know you want me.

Initial bio 11-17-16 Hello. Let me introduce myself. My name was Tonka but my foster parents thought it didn't fit very well for me and they renamed me Teddy Bear. They decided to call me Teddy Bear because they said I absolutely look like a stuffed Teddy Bear toy. Yes, I know I am very cute! I am not quite sure how old I am. Someone said I am only 7 years old, but I sure do look more like a puppy than a 7-year-old fellow.

I just got to my foster home and I already made myself very comfortable. I am very sweet and lovable and I follow my fur siblings and my foster parents everywhere they go. I love attention and being petted and that is the type of forever family I am looking for. I need someone that will have time for me and also someone with little bit of patience because I am not yet housetrained.

I am going to see the vet very soon just to make sure everything is okay with me. Next week I will have my dental and I will be neutered. If you are looking for the best companion fellow, here I am. I love having people close to me and I donít like being left alone.

I wag my little tail all the time and my foster parents said that this is the cutest thing ever. I am a happy boy! I know once I get all fixed up and have those scary shots and my little operation I will be ready for my forever home. Will you be ready to make me yours forever?

Stay tuned. More about me is coming really soon.

Bandit is a precious 7 year old, 7 pound Yorkie boy being fostered in Athens, Georgia. Bandit came to us with a torn cruciate ligament. He will be seeing a specialist very soon so that we can have his ligament surgically repaired.

THANK YOU TO BANDIT'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Teresa Beament, Karry Rogers, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Tanya Eller, Rena Hans

Initial Bio 11/19/2016 Bandit is a very loving dog. He loves to drop to the floor and have his belly rubbed. He loves to snuggle and sleep with his human. He gets along with other dogs large and small. He is interested in whatever his person is doing and loves to get treats. He is a good traveler and loves to ride in the car. Right now Bandit is not able to run and play as he once could due to his injury. His surgery will be expensive so we would greatly appreciate any help towards providing this sweet boy all the care he needs.

Buddy
Illinois
Buddy

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

THANK YOU TO BUDDY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Heather Warwin, Edward Guise, Wendy Fuhrmaneck

Update Bio. 12/03/16. Buddy is 12 years old and weighs 12.5 lbs. Buddy had his dental this week & lost 3 teeth. He also had about 12 small growths removed. He looks a raggedy patchwork puppy!! He has little squares of fur shaved off & stitches where the fur is missing. Buddy is a quiet, house trained boy. He does love treats & will sit up & beg when he watches you eat. I think maybe he was fed treats from the dinner table. If you could use a couch potato Buddy might be your boy!! If interested in adopting Buddy, just follow the link below to complete an application.

Update Bio. 10/31/16. This is Buddy's adopt me face. Buddy is still hanging out at his foster home waiting for his forever home. Buddy is almost 13 years old & weighs 13 lbs. He is a quiet boy that loves to eat, nap & wander around the back yard. While Buddy is not a lap dog he is a good couch Buddy. If Buddy sounds like the dog for you, follow the link below to complete an application for adoption.

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

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

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


To date we've spent $1356.85 on Buddy's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $136.00 in donations.

Oliver IL
Illinois
Oliver

Oliver is a Yorkie mix who is 9-years-old and weighs 17 pounds. He is residing in Beach Park, IL

THANK YOU TO OLIVER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

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

Update Bio. 11-15-16. Oliver is adjusting well to his new foster home in Beach Park, IL. He goes for walks in the mornings and evenings and gets so excited when we put the harness and leash on him. We donít go for long walks since he does have some arthritis, but he does enjoy getting out and sniffing all the scents and walking on the grass on the boulevard between the sidewalk and the street and kicking up his feet.

For being blind in one eye and having limited vision in the other, Oliver does fairly well going up and down the stairs. He is able to go up much better than coming down due to depth perception, which seems to be off but he stretches his leg out to feel the next step below him. As Oliver ages, along with the arthritis and limited vision, a home without stairs might be better suited for him.

Oliver loves to cuddle up on the sofa and be next to his people. He is a very sweet and lovable little guy and will follow you wherever you go. He loves to be petted and have his ears and neck rubbed, but he does startle easily if something comes up on his blind side. I feel a home with adults or older children might be better for him, as they would understand his vision problems.

At the present time Oliver is on a grain free diet and doing very well. This adorable little guy is looking for his forever home. If you are searching for a loyal, lovable little companion to take walks and curl up on the sofa with, Oliver is your guy! If you are interested in adopting Oliver, follow the link below to complete an application for adoption.

Update Bio. 10/15/16: Oliver is still waiting for his perfect, forever home. He is a very sweet, senior and would do well in just about any home. He'd love to be an only dog with a retired or stay at home person or family, but also gets along with respectful children. He does not need a fenced in a yard, as he doesn't like to be outside alone, and loves going on walks. Oliver would really love a home of his own, so contact his foster mom with any questions! To complete an application for adoption, follow the link below to be taken to the UYR site.

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

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

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

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

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

Bravo
Iowa
Bravo

Meet the adorable Bravo! Bravo is a beautiful 6-year-old, 9 pound yorkie being fostered in Urbandale, IA.

Update Bio. 11/25/16. Bravo will be making a 2nd visit to a potential fuever family. He is doing very well, with no issues of aggression. Keep your eyes on this little fellow since he will most likely have a new home for Christmas!

Update Bio. 11/01/16. Bravo is doing very well since being rescued. His aggressive issues were due to the stress of being sick and abandoned, which, as you can imagine, would cause most dogs to be afraid. Bravo is a cuddle buddy, he would rather be in your lap, or right beside you then anywhere else. The only thing he has fussed about since being in my home is grooming. However, he was indeed groomed today. Bravo is fine with older children who are gentle with him. He has shown no sign of fear around men, and women.

Bravo is ready to start meeting people who would like to add to their family! If Bravo sounds like the yorkie for you, follow the link below to be taken to the application.

Initial Bio 9/30/16. Meet Bravo! Bravo is estimated to be six years old. He was most likely left at a shelter due to health issues, which have been resolved. While in the shelter, he showed some aggression. However, in the months he has been in a foster home environment, his behavior is much better. Due to showing aggressive behavior at the shelter, UYR was asked to take over his care, beginning 9/28/16. So far, I have been very pleased with his behavior. I will be taking Bravo into different situations to see how he behaves. At this time, grooming has been identified as a problem area that he and I will be working on.

Be on the lookout for updates as I get to know Bravo a little better so you can determine if he is the right furbaby for you!

Charlie

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

THANK YOU TO CHARLIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Mary Mays-Delamater, Nancy Stanley, Carol Nelson

Update Bio. 11/25/16. Good news! Charlie maybe visiting with a new family to see if he is a compatible companion! He is a very protective little fellow when it comes to his humans and does not like to share his family with other dogs. He does love to cuddle and get belly rubs. Keep Charlie in your prayers for a good visit and a new home for Christmas!

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

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

Sincerely, Charlie

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

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

Sincerely, Susan Foster Mom

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

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

Love, Charlie

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

Sincerely, Chuckís UYR Foster Mom

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

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

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

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

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

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


To date we've spent $615.80 on Charlie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $441.69 in donations.

Paco

Paco

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

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

THANK YOU TO PACO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Dawn Beck, Karry Rogers, Sandra Wendt, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Sharon Dees, Elizabeth Giannone, David and Linda Rothrock, Paul Sherman, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Angie Cagle, Irene and Peter Havas in memory of Buddy, Vanessa and Pepe

Update Bio. 11/23/16. Paco has made some doggie friends, and we have play dates at the dog park. They are all medium to large size dogs. They give Paco his space and if they try to get rowdy with him, he lets them know he does not play that way. They usually just sniff each other, then the big dogs go play, and Paco walks around investigating. He is starting to play a little more. He likes to chase them. It is so much fun to watch a Yorkie chasing large dogs around the dog park. They are a lot faster than he is so when they get too far away, they stop for him to catch up. When Paco gets to them, he barks, like he is telling them , "ok run some more". So then, they take off, and he chases them again. The last play date lasted two and half hours. Paco took a short nap on my lap in the middle of it, then went back to investigating. The dogs we have play dates with are very well behaved dogs, and if Paco nips at them, they give him a look like 'really' and walk away. Some little kids came to the park while we were there and their mom took them to the playground outside the doggie area. Paco tried to go with them and was watching them by the gate. So we went over to the playground where he was following them around. I also put him on my lap and to swings. He just sat there and enjoyed it.

The skin tag on his head was getting bigger and catching on things so it was removed. Paco handled it like a champ. He doesnít even go for the stitches. We are looking forward to Christmas. Paco got gifts for his friends and they got him something too, so we will be having a doggie present exchange. I also found dog treats that Paco can eat on his restricted diet. He only gets one when I leave for work. So in the morning when I am getting ready he knows he gets a treat and keeps going to the kitchen where I keep the treats. Paco is an amazing little man. If you are interested in adopting him, juts follow the link below to complete the application.

Update Bio. 10/24/16. Paco is doing great. He participated in a Halloween custom contest. Unfortunately, he did not win but received a prize for participating. He went to the barn and was not even scared of the horses. They bent down to sniff him, and he was nose to nose with them. He even went to their food dish and tried to eat with them. Note: The horses he was around are older horses used to cats and dogs of all sizes. Paco is ready to find his forever home. If you are interested in having Paco as your forever dog, follow the link below to complete an application.

Update Bio. 9/28/16 Paco has had a very busy month. We are still working on socializing with other dogs. In an effort to help with socialization, we went to Mutt Strut to help raise money for a local, no kill shelter. Paco and I played musical dogs. Although we did not win the game, he did get to pick out a toy for participating. Afterwards, we joined the group and walked along the canel. Paco was in the stroller while we walked around visiting the booths, but walked on a leash for the canal walk and game. We also went to Dogtoberfest, where he wore his Octoberfest shirt! We meet some friends there who brought their two Burmese Mountain dogs. Paco did not seem to mind their large size, but both dogs are extremely laid back. Again, he was in his stroller while we visited the booths, but remained out of the stroller while we sat on the grass to socialize. He did fine, but did try to nip at a few dogs that got a little rambunctious next to him. We attended my companyís picnic, and he was not in the stroller at all. However, besides Paco, there was only one other dog there, which is the dog we have been working with since he came to live with me). After the picnic we went for a hike, and Paco had the time of his life. His face said it all. He was so happy. Towards the end, I was tired but he wanted to keep going, making it hard to believe he is 10 years old. He has made great progress towards being around dogs and crowds. Although he still has accidents, and we go outside to reinforce the behavior, he will often leak on his way to the door or the pee pad. He does not appear to know that he is leaking. He has not had any accidents on the bed or couch. He is doing well on his medicine, and has no side effects. Paco is just waiting for the perfect family to come along. To complete an application to adopt Paco, follow the link below to the UYR website.

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

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

They were fine on a walk together, but once inside Paco started to nip at her. We are going to work on this with regular get-togethers at home and at the dog park. He is a very good boy just waiting to find his forever home.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

THANK YOU TO PIPER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Updated bio 10/20/2016 Ė Piper continues to show good improvement. During her last visit to North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine on 9/28/2016 they commented on how remarkable her improvements were. Her hair is growing back with minor scars that her hair will soon cover. She has begun a new medication for skin allergy, Atopica (for cats). She gets a very small amount. Piper has been on her steroid, Prednisolone for 6 weeks now. We are slowly weaning her off it to see if her skin issues will remain under control while we continue with the Atopica once a day. There have been no new pustules for two weeks. Our plan is to continue the Atopica for at least 30 days and then begin to wean her off to see if she needs further medication.

Piper continues to thrive in her still Yorkie puppy youth. When we first got her it was unknown exactly what her true coloring was. She now has a beautiful blond/silver coat and it is enhanced with reddish leopard like markings.

Piper pretty much rules the roost at her foster home. Independent and smart, she is very attentive and easy with the smaller pups. She never overplays or shows any type of aggression. She welcomes all with her loving Yorkie Kisses, and greets every stranger with a wag of the tail. She is very active and loves to run around the fenced yard. She can run non-stop for several minutes, take a rest, then be ready to start again. Piper is also the most loving, sweetest, cuddling pup too. She get along with everyone and loves them all whether they have 2 feet or 4, everyone is her friend.

We have every reason to believe she will soon make a full recovery and become available for adoption. For more about Piper continue to check her bio on our Looing for Love page on our website. You may also contact Piperís foster mom at laloba1016@yahoo.com.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Polo Update 11/29/2016 Ė Polo is a very loving pup. His big beautiful brown eyes seem to look right into your soul and one might find him a little reserved at first.

Gunner ready to ride!

Gunner
Tennessee
Gunner

Gunner has a PENDING ADOPTION. Gunner is a a 9 year old, 7.5 pound Yorkie boy being fostered in Ashland City, TN.

Updated Bio 11/17/16

Gunner is doing great in his foster home. He has had absolutely no episodes of food aggression and he has gotten along perfectly with his three fur siblings. Gunner saw the UYR vet for the first time and we found he has a heart murmur. We had Gunner evaluated by a veterinary specialist and he had an echocardiogram of his heart. The specialist says that Gunner has a grade 4 heart murmur but it is not affecting his health at this point in time and does not require that he be on any type of medication. However, they do believe that he should be periodically (yearly) re-evaluated just to be sure his heart is still working properly and he is not developing any additional issues. Gunner is a real love bug and just loves to cuddle with his person. One of his favorite things to do is put his head on your shoulder and just fall asleep lying across your chest. He does well most of the time with his house training and can wear a belly band when he needs to be left unattended for a while. He is also great in the car and likes to go for rides. Gunner is ready for his forever home so if you think you are the perfect match for this sweet, adorable boy apply to adopt him today.

Initial Bio 11/6/16

Gunner came to us from a shelter situation. He is currently being treated for kennel cough and is about half way through his antibiotics. Gunner is very sweet so far and gets along with the other dogs in his foster home. However, Gunner does have food aggression issues and will be working on this in his foster home. Gunner just arrived in his foster home so stay tuned for updates as we get to know him better.

Molly
Tennessee
Molly

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

THANK YOU TO MOLLY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

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

Updated bio 11-8-16 Molly came into United Yorkie Rescue in August. Prior to being with her foster family she lived the majority of her life in a puppy mill, where she was forced to produce litter after litter of puppies to be sold for profit. Molly was eventually rescued by another small dog rescue, but unfortunately they did not vet her adopters. They decided they didn't want her so she ended up homeless until a nice neighbor took her in. Despite their love for Molly they were unable to give her the time and care they knew she deserved! When Molly arrived at her foster home, she had severe dental disease and a terrible yeast infection on her skin. She has had two dental surgeries and received a lot of medicated baths and anti-fungal treatment. After several more vet visits, her foster family learned that she has two dislocated knees, which causes her to lose her balance, fall, and run into things. Because of her tumultuous life, Molly is very skittish and apprehensive! She loves to cuddle, nap, and eat! (What lady doesn't?)

Molly canít be leashed because she is scared of anyone or anything coming near her face, head or body in anyway. It will cause her to cower and squeal. This is the same for diaper and a collar and a harness. She canít bear anything that will have to go around her head or near her face. This could have to do with how long her mouth hurt her and although it has been fixed, she is still very protective of that area.

Molly loves treats, loves to eat, and likes to go outside. She needs to go outside for a long time to get her bearings and do her business. She takes her time to leave her safe space to go outside, but once she is out she likes to be there. Since a leash and harness are not an option for Molly, a fenced yard is a must for her. Her foster mom says this is a requirement for adoption. Molly also loves her kennel. It is her safe space. The door is left open all day so she can come and go as she wants.

Molly is looking for a family that can offer her love and support! She will need a family that has a lot of patience and experience with dogs from puppy mills. She will need a family that doesn't expect a playful pup, but a loving lap dog! She does get along well with other small dogs who are older and calm. Ones that would not want to play with her, but snuggle. Her foster family will evaluate every applicant on a case-by-case basis to see if she is a good fit with your current pack.

Molly cannot go to a family with small children or a home that requires her to use stairs. She will need a family that understands that she is not potty trained and will probably never be totally potty trained, therefore, they will need to be accepting of accidents throughout the day. But it is a small price to pay for the love and gratitude Molly will show you every day. If you feel Molly is a good fit for your family, please fill out an adoption application for her or email her foster mom at NashvilleTnYorkie@gmail.com. If you want to send Molly some love and warm wishes, feel free to donate on her behalf!

Updated Bio 9/15/16

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

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

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

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

Update Bio. 11/26/16. We were blessed to have had a Happy Thanksfurgiving! Jasper has been having a few "coughing" spells, but is doing well and coming through them. He is still on the antibiotics to protect him from pneumonia and the steroids to help, as well. He is not eating as much as he was before, but I think that might take a little while. He is on a very diluted, wet, high calorie puppy food, which is helping him keep hydrated and add calories for his little body.

I'm pleased with him this week, and I know without all of your prayers we might not have had the outcome we have to date. Thank you everyone for your love, support and never ending prayers!!!

Update Bio. 11/16/16. Jasper did very well today. He is so so tired! Dr Sam and I had a long talk this morning and we decided to give him the chance of life. If we don't try, then I would be back soon for that awful day to send him over to the bridge and I refuse to let that happen!! He is now 5.4 lbs, he is healthy and we will fight for his life. He had his first injection. It was a smaller dose than normal, so that the kill of the worms does not damage his lungs. He is on an antibiotic to guard against pneumonia and a steroid as well. These next few days will be critical when the worms start to die and slough into the lungs. So please, just a sweet prayer at bedtime is so appreciated! Jasper says he loves you all for your prayers and sweet notes...I love you all too!!

Update Bio. 11/14/16. I am asking for everyone to please take a moment tonight to say a prayer for sweet Jasper. Tomorrow on the 15th we will start the heart worn treatment. For those of you who have not kept up with Jasperís journey, he is a 4.8lb 4year old little one that was rescued from a horrible owner by a loving neighbor who reached out to UYR for his life. Jasper was skin and bones literally. Although I rushed him to the Dr immediately that day, the following day and that next day we almost lost this little one due to his starvation, emaciation, dehydration, thyroid disease, heart worm disease and a heartbeat that was like no other. Jasper had an echocardiogram which showed worms pouring into his atrium and laying across his ventricles. His treatment had to be reconsidered.

Each month I have strived to get this precious baby healthy. Jasper came into my life with no hair on his ears, none on his nose, none on his legs, little to none on his body, with sores all down his bony spine and underbody. He looks amazing todayÖphysically. His hair is growing and he may never get that complete look but he is just adorable. He absolutely loves to be loved 24/7 and will demand it, and we most definitely give him that.

Tomorrow, Jasper will begin the journey he has deserved but has been so ill to even attempt. His heart is still so full that this attempt is still very dangerous but he deserves this life...heís just a little boy!!

Please continue to be there for Jasper at UYR. Send your prayers. Please also be there for all of his UYR siblingsÖthey are getting a chance at life and a furever home because of you!! Thank you.

Love and puppy kisses,

Susan and Jasper

Update Bio. 10/16/2016. Jasper has been doing fairly well this past month. When consulting his Dr. two weeks ago, we decided that we needed to address his dental disease to try to keep this little guy healthy, and while under for his dental perform his neuter. For those of you following and may not remember, Jasper was cryptorchid, which means he had one teste that did not drop, and this required additional surgery to go into the inguinal area to find and remove. Since his surgery, this poor little guy is having a really hard time with his trachea. We have started another med that works with his coughing that also has a small amount of steroid in it for the inflammation. His Dr. did say we might just need to start him on steroids, which after this weekend, I am inclined to believe that will be the path. We are also assuming that this is the trachea, but with Jasper, nothing seems to be normal, of course. His gasping sounds so wet and congested. If you remember, this actually began some time ago when we had the ďscareĒ. It is hard for him to just walk outside to potty without going into a full-blown attack of gasps. As far as his horrible heart worm disease, November is now the date that we will assess the heart worms and the treatment plan. Jasper still needs all the prayers he can get, so I ask everyone to please keep this little guy in your thoughts and prayers as we try to get some relief, now for his trachea and then for an answer to his HW disease. Please know Jasperís medical will be expensive, we are preparing for it now, so if you are able to donate to his fund, we thank you. If not, prayers are always loved!!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Thank you for reading my story again!

Hugs, love and puppy kisses,

Jasper

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Updated Bio. 11/15/16. I am up to date on all of my vaccines and have recently gotten a teeth cleaning and haircut! I am less shy ow that I have warmed up to my foster parents.

Duelie

Duelie

Duelie is a 5-year-old, 18 pound, cuddle bug. Duelie is being fostered in WV.

THANK YOU TO DUELIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Jill Fuhrman

Update Bio. 11/23/16. It has been a pleasure getting to know this sweet boy. He is mostly blind but it doesn't impair him one bit. In light, he can make out solid shapes so you are not even aware that he can't see well. He needs a fenced yard to safely explore, but also has good leash skills. He loves every dog and person he meets. Duelie is a bigger Yorkie, which gives him a huge advantage. Duelie would love to be with children. He is not fragile and loves play time. He's also the best cuddle buddy and loves to fall asleep beside you. He is house trained and very well behaved. On one of his adventures, he brought me a mouse he caught in my house! He's an amazing boy that we all love dearly. Duelie will be a loving member of your family. If you are interested in adopting Duelie, simply follow the link application below.

Initial Bio: 10/16/16. Duelie is a perfect, 5-year-old boy who happens to be blind. His mom, who rescued him from euthanasia three years ago from a local shelter, sadly lost her home. She had to find a safe place for Duelie and his sister, Paris (also at United Yorkie Rescue). He must have been dearly loved because he has been a perfectly happy boy from the start. Duelie is an 18 pound sweetheart who loves car rides, walks, exploring, and especially loves people. All he wants to do is snuggle and look your way with an infectious smile. He is house trained, crate trained, and due to his blindness, is totally in tune with his foster mom. Whether it's sit, stay, come here, move over here, get on my lap, Duelie just gets it. He is amazing. The vet feels he can see some contrast that helps him get around very well and have no fear of his surroundings. He is in perfect health and seems friendly to all animals, but definitely prefers his foster family. Duelie has never met a stranger and he is going to be a perfect addition to one very lucky family.

Paris is a beautiful, 5.5-year-old, 11 pound, yorkie girl. Paris is being fostered in WV.

THANK YOU TO PARIS' RESCUE ANGELS!

Jill Fuhrman

Update Bio. 11/24/16. Paris is a beautiful, 5.5-year-old, 11 pound, yorkie girl. Paris is being fostered in WV.

Paris is an amazing, smart little girl. She is always happy and loves everyone. You can't help but be immediately drawn to this sweet girl. She is completely house trained and can use a pad if needed. She has a quiet bark, and loves to kill a toy on special occasions. She needs a fenced yard because she loves to explore every little nook and cranny. She gets along with all other dogs, but it has been decided to place Paris in a home with no other dogs. Her trainer has determined that Paris has a dominant personality. If another dog in the household is also dominant, there could be a scuffle. But that's ok because Paris wants someone who will want to snuggle her and spoil her. She loves to give kisses. She is going to make one lucky family a very happy. Any questions please email foster mom at scp1127paint@yahoo.com. If you are interested in adopting Paris, just follow the link below to complete an application.

Initial Bio. 10/16/16. Paris came to United Yorkie Rescue with her brother, Duelie, when her mom lost her home. Paris must have been greatly loved because all she wants to do is is give love and kisses. Paris loves car rides, walks, and snuggling with her foster family. She is housebroken, crate trained, and has the sweetest demeanor. She is in perfect health at 5 1/2 years and 11 pounds. Her mom says she doesn't like other dogs and may need to be the only pet in the family. Paris just wants a loving lap and a face to give kisses. She is so smart. She seems to know exactly what to do and blends perfectly into daily family life. Paris will need to be spayed before she can be placed in her forever home.

Update Bio. 12/03/16. Update 11/30/16: Reeses had her spay and dental done on 11/23. She only had 3 extractions, which is great, and she had a little cyst on her back removed (a fatty tumor which was getting in the way of being brushed out). Reeses still is uncomfortable with foster mom's husband and strangers that come into the home. She will bark and sometimes nip at the heels. A quiet home with few visitors and no men would probably be the best solution for her. She enjoys the company of other dogs, so some playmates would be fine.If you are interested in adopting Reeses, just follow the link below to compete an application.

Update 11/1/16: Reeses moved to a new foster home where he has a dad in the family to adjust to. We believe Reeses may have had some issues with men that developed in her original home, so this is a great opportunity to learn to trust men. She is coming along nicely since her foster dad is very patient and understanding. We hope to get her spay and dental scheduled soon. She is a little shadow for her foster mom, loves her walks and does beautifully on a leash. She is also showing that she knows how to potty outside with frequent trips outdoors during the day. Reeses is a sweet girl who will soon be ready for her forever home.

Update Bio. 10/17/16. Reeses has settled into her foster home quite nicely. She has actually begun playing with one of the younger dogs and enjoys the puppy play. Reeses doesn't really play with toys but she has a comfort stuffed bear that sits in her bed for her. She doesn't like newcomers to the home and will bark and act "tough", but if she is ignored, she will approach for petting. She is near the end of her heat cycle and soon will be able to be spayed and have her dental. The vaccinations she received had to be stretched out over the course of a number of weeks in case there was any reaction, we'd know the cause.

Reeses eats a home-cooked diet, which she loves. It is turkey based and has lots of veggies and rice. She always cleans her bowl, morning and evening. She is my shadow during the day and sleeps nicely at night. She will jump on the bed and snuggle with me. She is a sweet girl who enjoys walks but still doesn't know how to signal to potty outside. So housetraining is still a work in progress.

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

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