Brandy

Brandy

Brandy is a beautiful 4-year-old, 7 pound, little Yorkie girl being fostered in Southern California. Brandy must be an only dog and cannot go to a home with children. Only candidates living in California will be considered for adoption.

THANK YOU TO BRANDY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Rodney and Robin Slagle, L Summers, Barbara Burgess

UPDATE BIO. 05/07/19. These past few months have been a rollercoaster ride as we continue to interview prospective “FurParents” for this unique and special little girl, but the perfect family with the right experience and vetting history has yet to be found…..at least not yet!

We have also had a couple medical issues arise with Brandy over the past few months. Following her routine dental, Brandy was diagnosed with a slight collapsing trachea requiring her to be on daily medication. This condition is barely noticeable when she’s in-doors and quiet, but is noticeable when she’s excited and sometimes the first few minutes she’s walking on a lead. This condition requires that her living environment be kept cool, and her activity level kept to a minimum as summer approaches and the days get hotter. And if that wasn’t enough for this little beauty, for the past several weeks, Brandy has been unable to place her right rear foot squarely on the floor while walking or standing. X-Rays showed a moderate degree of arthritis in both rear hips and knees. Brandy has received a series of 5 weekly Adequin shots to help relieve swelling and help her begin to feel better. Her last weekly Adequin shot will be on Saturday. She will then require these shots on a monthly basis moving forward with hopes that her standing and walking will return to normal. If not, she will be re-evaluated to determine next steps.

At home, Brandy has made slow, but steady progress but continues to have difficulty understanding or conforming to the rules of our pack. Brandy’s judgement continues to be lacking in her interactions with other dogs. Mine, Mine, MINE is Brandy’s MO, and she doesn’t let anyone stand in her way!! During playtime, Brandy will attempt to hijack the fetch toy and hold it hostage upstairs in her bed. She’s always collecting her favorites and hiding them so none of the other can play with them. Thankfully, our pack has just learned how to deal with Brandy’s behavior, which is pretty much overlooked now, but it can sometimes cause chaos with the other lose their patience with her selfishness and unpredictability.

Brandy’s relationship with Alex and I has really improved. She is sweet and loving to him now and rarely nips at either of us, even when being groomed, which is a big improvement. She longs for love and just wants to be on a lap watching TV or reading a book. When we talk or sing to her, her tail just goes wiggle-waggle –it just melts my heart! She has grown very fond of Alex and longs to have alone time with him on the weekends, sharing Cheerio’s or Ice Cream early in the morning, or late at night when the other’s aren’t around. At home, she just the sweetest, most loving little lap-dog. She loves to be held, and even has begun to give “hugs,” leaning her head into your chest or arm and snuggling.

On the other hand, some things have not changed despite lots of behavioral research and attempts at modification and reprogramming. We feel that Brandy will always have a fear of strangers and attempt to charge them and nip at them. Likewise, she will always be fiercely protective of her people and nip at anyone that approaches and/or tries to touch her. This behavior subsides when she gets to know people at home, but it is unlikely she will ever be friendly to strangers that come into our home or those she meets outside of the home. Her leash is RED for a reason – We’re always on-guard for people that try to reach for her while shopping or strolling by the lake. She’s so adorable, she’s irresistible to everyone that sees her!

We’re continuing to love, protect and work on solving her medical issues. Her uniqueness and quirks make our relationship with her extra specially rewarding.

Fosters – Diane & Alex

UPDATE BIO. 01/25/19. With each new day, we love this little girl more and more…..and Brandy has learned to return our love. This little ball of confusion has unraveled and it’s definitely been a magical time of learning for us as foster parents. There are few things as special as gaining the love and trust of a Yorkie like Brandy – such a wonderful little dog that is making great strides as she figures out life, love & trust.

Brandy has taught us so much about taking the time to observe with patience, gain a clear understanding of cues and develop new individual behavioral strategies that she can understand. We believe we have developed goals and behavioral objectives that set her up for success, and there’s just nothing like watching Brandy celebrate her achievements! When it comes to Brandy, there are no “cookie-cutter” strategies that can be applied with success. She meets each new situation and/or person on an individual basis. Therefore, she continues to be a bit unpredictable. We have come to understand that Brandy’s lack of early socialization has caused her to have a significant level of social anxiety which causes her to nip when she meets new people or other dogs. We have made it our goal to put her in as many social situations as possible and she has begun accept new people and even make friends over a short period of time. We anticipate that Brandy will always be suspicious of strangers, but now we understand that if a person respects her space and give her time to observe and feel comfortable, she will warm up and event attempt to make friends.

Miss Brandy continues to be an Alpha Female that really isn’t interested in developing relationships with other dogs, although she has learned how to behave and live and abide by the rules of our pack. She isn’t good at sharing toys and is very possessive of them. Brandy continues to be combative with other dogs when she feels threatened and this little girl is fearless. Over the past few months, she has learned to retreat to her “crib” in our bedroom when she feels overstimulated or uncomfortable around the other dogs. She’ll sit and wait until another dog isn’t looking and will steal their toy and hide it away for herself. She loves “one-on-one” time with me, loves playing ball and has become the most loving lap dog. It’s very clear that Brandy’s preference is to be a “One & Only!” She just loves being hugged, petted and having her belly rubbed now – but she’ll sometimes have a “flashback” and growl as a warning that she’s getting ready to snap because something is making her feel uncomfortable. We have learned to accept this behavior and when we hear her growl, we just stop touching her and let her be. Often, she’ll immediately begin kissing your hand as an apologetic gesture. We still can’t figure out what goes through her mind – except that she just gets “spooked”. Brandy is very animated and energetic. Sometimes I think she expends so much energy when she’s awake that she just crashes into a very deep sleep when she goes to rest.

Smart as a whip, Brandy knows all her basic commands and is always eager to please for a treat!! She is extremely animated and attentive. She listens intently and really loves New Age, Classical and Reikki Relaxation music. She has excellent potty skills and goes directly to her little patch of fake dog grass on the deck when she has to go. She loves structure and responds very well to a predictable schedule. She’s at the door with her baby in her mouth precisely at 9AM and again at 4PM ready for her walk. She is a remarkably well behaved dog that can be taken to hotels, restaurants and virtually any public setting as long as strangers aren’t permitted to touch her. Brandy loves riding in the car and recently came on a 12 hour trip to New Mexico during which she was a perfect little traveler.

Each night I take a moment to place Brandy gently in her “crib” and sit with her for a moment. I look lovingly into her eyes and blink to let her know that she is safe and loved. With each passing month, her expression becomes softer and now she’ll even drift off to sleep as I rub her little belly and kiss her goodnight.

Brandy continues to march to the beat of her own drum, and the music she makes is uniquely beautiful!!

Foster Parents – Diane & Alex

6/04/18. UPDATE BIO. Brandy continues to do well and make slow but steady improvements. This month she seems to have turned the corner with my husband Alex. She hasn’t wanted to have anything to do with him, but now she happily jumps on his lap and has even given him a few kisses on his nose. Before she would only kiss his hand. She continues to hoard the toys she likes and has begun guarding them all day long. She makes sure to take one of her “dollies” each time we walk and makes it the entire way with her “dolly” hanging out of her mouth. The neighbors think she’s just darling.

We continue to work with her on nipping, but she gets overly excited easily and will lash out at me when I touch her in a way she doesn’t like. A good example of this is when I attempt to clean her eyes and face each morning. She doesn’t like anyone touching her face and does growl and then try to nip when she doesn’t like the way she’s being touched or handled. In addition, she remains very fearful of meeting new people and will immediately nip if they try to touch her. The only way to get her to interact with an unfamiliar person is to give them treats. She’s very motivated by food and will take a treat from a stranger as long as they don’t try to touch her. For the past few weeks, I’ve been taking her with me to the store or to run errands, so she can experience new people and places, but I have to be careful not to allow anyone to touch her. I hope we’ll make some good progress on this front over the next month or so.

Brandy two favorite activities are going for walks and eating!!

03/20/18. Update Bio. Brandy came to UYR as an owner surrender that suddenly became intolerant and aggressive toward the other dog in her household after four years of peaceful coexistence. In addition, she became overly possessive of her owner and began nipping at others that came into her vicinity. Brandy has been medically evaluated and is in perfect health. In addition, she has been seen and evaluated by a reputable trainer and was placed on Prozac to help control her aggression, but the medication had no positive impact on the situation. Concerned for the safety of both of their dogs, Brandy’s owners found themselves with no other option than to seek the assistance of UYR.

Brandy has been a member of our family for the past six weeks. She has been weened completely off of medication, has been placed on a healthy, raw, grain free diet. Ironically, Brandy was immediately accepted into my little pack of three the day she arrived. We have had no major incidences of aggression between Brandy and any of our 3 Yorkies (with some minor pack corrections that are teaching her manners, none that have involved overly physical contact). In fact, they seem to like her, and regularly attempt to seek her out to play. Although Brandy tolerates the pack, she isn’t eager to engage with them just yet. She prefers the one-on-one attention of humans and has fallen in love with both my husband and myself. She is a sweet little lap dog that likes nothing more than cuddling, wrapped in a blanket and having her neck, ears and belly rubbed. She loves being brushed too and will sit on the floor next to my feet to wait for her turn. So adorable.

As her foster mom, and a person with several years of experience living and working with “Quirky Yorkies.” I think Brandy is a Fantastic little one and very typical of many of the more “Colorful” Yorkies. Brandy is a very loving, intelligent and complex little one that needs to be challenged and loves learning. She is super fun, and very spunky and so incredibly ADORABLE! She has a very high level of intensity in everything she does and absolutely needs lots and lots of exercise, attention and a new Mom & Dad that can respect and appreciate her for who she is. One of the things I love about Brandy is her strong desire to communicate her needs, albeit the way she has gone about it in the past has been understandably misinterpreted. For example, if she’s enjoying getting her ears scratched and you suddenly stop, she will grab your hand with her mouth gently because she wants more. I’ve been working with her to kiss rather than grab my hand and she is catching on quickly. If you rough her up or hold her too tightly she gets upset and will grab your hand as if to say, “Don’t do that to me!” If you grab her leash and walk to the door, she’ll nip your toes because she can’t wait to go outside. She’s learning how to kiss instead. Like most Yorkies – Brandy LOVES going for long mountain walks …. 1-mile twice per day. She also has a habit of growling in a fairly intimidating way if anyone or the dogs go near her when she’s in her bed or has a toy. Of course, this is normal, but in Brandy’s case it was overly intense. She’s doing this less and less as she begins to feel safer and becomes more accustomed to our family and the rules of our pack which include respecting others and their space.

Brandy also has a tendency to get overly excited which is usually the precursor to negative behavior. She is learning how to channel her excess energy into chewing bones, playing fetch, and tug-of-war. She is also learning how to have better manners with other dogs. Each evening I watch as my pack engages her or ignores her depending on how she is acting, and which cues she’s sending out. She is very smart and seems to be enjoying learning the ways and rules of the pack with little intervention from me – she seems to feel accomplished and I’m very proud of her.

Brandy also has rather strong obsessive/compulsive tendencies and (like many Yorkies) wants whatever another dog has. In Brandy’s case, she doesn’t want to play with another dog, she wants to steal the toy and hide it. She’s definitely a major hoarder. In the beginning she would sit and whine for a long, long, long time if she wanted something. Since she has learned that this just isn’t the way to get what she wants, and she rarely does this now. Brandy also knows when she needs quiet time and will sometimes retreat to her bed just to relax. To her credit, Brandy is perfectly housetrained and is terrific at letting us know when she has to go out to her little patch of grass on the deck.

In the beginning Brandy was aloof and didn’t really seem to like or trust people very much. She seemed uncertain of human interaction and wasn’t a big fan of being held or carried around and would growl. We got the sense she really just wanted to be left alone, like she was just plain fed-up humans, which we could totally understand based on the chaos this entire family had endured during their final months together. We believe that Brandy was very confused and disoriented because she just couldn’t figure things out, or what people wanted from her. She just wanted to go to her bed or retreat and “check-out.” The unpredictability of life also resulted in her lack of confidence, fear, and caused her to growl and/or lash out.

Brandy is a UNIQUE Yorkie that has definite streaks of unpredictability which (we believe) may stem from a combination of her possible in-breeding, past life experiences and genuine nature. It has taken time, good judgement, love, limits, and the ability to properly evaluate her state of mind at any given time and lots and lots and lots of positive reinforcement to develop a good, strong, loving relationship with Brandy. I’m confident that it will take her new owner(s) a good deal of BREED SPECIFIC KNOWLEDGE, time, effort, patience, love, kindness and respect and work to develop a loving relationship with Brandy.

Brandy is a Special UYR Yorkie with Unique Needs.

Brandy’s Specific Requirements – Please Read Carefully – In addition to UYR’s high-standards for potential adopters, the following additional conditions are specific to Brandy.

You must have demonstrated experience with the Yorkie Breed, and an understanding, experience and a passion for intensified breed characteristics and knowledge of how to properly correct with positive reinforcement and loving limits.

Brandy will not be adopted into a household with children or regularly visiting grandchildren under 16 years of age. A retired, yet active couple or single person that is home most of the time is highly preferable.

You must commit to having a “one-Yorkie” home FurEver. If you plan to have a mult-pet household at some future date, or if you currently have another pet, please do not apply to adopt Brandy. UYR will reserve the right to retrieve her should this commitment be broken.

Applicants for Brandy must live in Orange or San Diego Counties Only.

We’d like Brandy to be adopted by a Yorkie-Breed Enthusiast. We’d love to find her new FurParents that will take her to obedience, training and agility classes to establish and solidify a strong, life-long bond with Brandy.

Initial Bio 2/12/18: Hello – My name is Brandy! I’m 4.5 Years Old and 7lbs of Pure Moxie! I’m a Little California Beauty Queen, and I know it!!

Connecticut
Oscar

Meet Oscar, a sweet 6 year old, 6 pound Yorkie who is blind. He is being fostered in southeastern CT.

7/18/19: I'm the new kid on the block. I was in a shelter for 6 wks. Someone found me wandering on a main road and was concerned that I would be hit by a car. She called animal control and I was taken to the shelter so my picture could be posted in the hope that my family would claim me. I sat in a very scary and noisy shelter for 5 weeks and no one came looking for me. When I was at the shelter they said I had vision and then one day I did not. They took me to the Vet and gave me a diagnosis of SARDS (Sudden acquired retinal degeneration syndrome)... my world went black. For the next week a family adopted me but it was only for one day and they returned me to the shelter, I'm not sure why.

Then the shelter contacted my FM and asked if United Yorkie Rescue was able to take me. I've been here for a few days and still very unsure of myself and my surroundings. FM is giving me plenty of food because she say's I'm a little on the thin side. I get 4 small meals a day which I like. This is all very new to me, I'm very hesitant to walk around the house but I like to when I'm outside. FM says I'm such a good boy, I haven't had any accidents in the house. FM says that there's a special person out there to adopt me because I'm a special needs fur baby.

I know I am cute.

See - I am adorable and will love you forever
Florida
Apollo

Apollo is an adorable little 9 year old yorkie boy who weighs only 7 lbs. Apollo is being fostered in Jacksonville, FL.

UPDATED BIO 07/17/2019: Apollo here - I wanted to let my fans know that I am looking for a quiet adult home with someone home most of the time. I do not do well with children, so no children for me please. I like to be near my person and especially enjoy cuddles and belly rubs. I walk well on a leash and continue to get better each day. I am house-trained and will use puppy pads if unable to go out. And listen to this - I am also a good alarm clock. I will wake you in the morning so I can go outside and do my business. I enjoy having a fenced yard so I can run around and play and go potty, but this would just be a bonus and is not required to be approved to adopt me. I enjoy most toys - especially the chew things, balls and whatever I can get ahold of! I think you get the picture. I will even retrieve my toys if I can convince you to throw them for me. One important thing - - my adoptive family needs to know up front that I prefer not to share my toys.

I may like a small playmate as long as they are willing to share you with me. When I first came to my foster home, I did not like sharing Foster Mom with the other fur kids and wanted all the attention. However, Foster Mom helped me learn that it is okay to share time with my person. The toys are another situation – did I say I don’t like to share my toys? I'm very smart and know my basic obedience commands (sit, down, come, high 5). I was very good sitting on Foster Mom's lap when she used her special chair at the store. I tolerate car rides and eventually settle down, though I get anxious at the start. Would you like me to be your forever companion?

NOTE FROM FOSTER MOM: Apollo's preferred home should have at least one stay-at-home adult with NO children in the home and/or who are frequent visitors. Apollo will do best in a quiet, calm environment with lots of attention and toys. He does bark with new and unusual sounds but adjusts over time and repetition of the sound until he gets familiar with it. Apollo likes attention and if you have one or two small dogs willing to share you with him, then he may be the perfect companion you are seeking. Cats are not his favorite, but if given the time to adjust, he may be just fine with them.

UPDATED BIO 07/03/2019: Apollo has settled in to his calm, quiet lifestyle since his arrival at his foster home. Foster Mom reports that he is getting along well with his foster fur-brother and is slowly getting better at interacting with the resident cat. He had a few potty accidents initially; but will let her know when he needs to go out and will use pee-pee pads. He continues to bark at new and unusual sounds, but stops once he gets familiar with the sound. Apollo is frightened of storms, especially the ones that have accompanying noises. He eats very well and certainly enjoys his treats.

Here’s what Apollo had to say recently:

Apollo here. I wanted to let you know that I am looking for a quiet adult home with someone home most of the time. I do not do well with children, so please - no children in my adoptive home. I like to be near my person and I really enjoy cuddles and belly rubs. I walk well on a leash, but need more practice to get better. I enjoy having a fenced yard so I can run around and play and do my business – this would be a bonus in my new home, but not a deal-breaker.

I love toys, especially those squeaky ones, along with chew things, balls, etc. I think you get the picture. I will even retrieve my toys if I can convince you to throw them for me. You need to know that I don't like to share my toys, so I need to be the only dog so I am sure to get all the attention. I am very smart and know my basic obedience commands (sit, down, come). I was very good sitting on Foster Mom’s lap when she used her special chair at the store. I like to ride in the car and although I may be a little squirmy at first, I will settle down until we get to our destination. I would love to be your special companion.

NOTE FROM FOSTER MOM: Apollo's preferred home is one in which he has a stay-at-home parent. He will do best in a quiet, calm environment with lots of attention and toys. He does bark with new and unusual sounds, but adjusts over time and repetition. Apollo needs to be an only dog as he doesn’t like to share his person. Cats are not his favorite and he may need time to adjust to them. He will reward you with lots of love and cuddles.

UPDATED BIO 06/22/2019: Apollo has been in his foster home a week now; since his arrival, he has settled in to a calm, quiet lifestyle. He will let foster mom know when he needs to go out and will use puppy pads. He continues to bark at new and unusual sounds, but stops once he gets familiar with the sound.

Apollo likes toys - especially squeaky toys - and prefers to not share. He likes to be near his person and enjoys cuddles and belly rubs. He does good on a leash and enjoys having a fenced yard, but not required. His preferred home should be an adult only home with someone home most of the time. He does not do well with children so a home with no children is required. He prefers to be an only dog for all the attention and he will need time to adjust to cats. He will do best in a quiet, calm environment, but not a fan of thunderstorms.

UPDATED BIO 06/18/2019: Apollo has been in his foster home a few days now. He is learning about his Foster Mom, as well as his new fur-brother and fur-kitty sister. He was previously exhibiting barking and howling at loud noises which was disturbing to his former family; he felt like he needed to be on-guard all the time. He was also forgetting a lot of his house-training manners. Foster Mom needs time to determine exactly how much he remembers and how much of a refresher course he may need.

Since Apollo’s arrival in his foster home, he has settled into a calm, quiet lifestyle – just what he needed. He is even recalling some of his house-training manners and is improving. He continues to bark at new and unusual sounds initially, but stops once he gets familiar with the sounds. He likes soft squeaky toys and prefers to not share lol. He likes to be near his person and enjoys cuddles and belly rubs. He will soon see the vet to make sure he is healthy and will be groomed as well. Foster Mom needs time to evaluate his ability on a leash. A fenced yard may be preferred but not required.

Apollo’s preferred home would be an adult-only home with someone home most of the time. NO CHILDREN of any age please. Apollo will do best in a quiet, calm environment. Come back soon to find out more about adorable Apollo.

INITIAL BIO 06/15/2019: Little Apollo arrived at his foster home today. He is just learning about his foster mom, fur brother, and fur kitty sister. Apollo will need a nice grooming and will see the vet soon.

Apollo was having some trouble in his former home. It seems he likes to bark and howl at noises he didn't recognize, and was disturbing the new baby in the house. The new baby is also making Apollo upset and he is forgetting a lot of his house-training manners. Since the new baby's arrival, Apollo has been regressing in his behavior and seems to be on guard all the time. His owners sadly decided that for Apollo's sake and for his well-being, he needed a calm, quiet, adult only home.

Apollo's foster mom has a lot to learn about Apollo, but we do know that he needs an adult only home. He would love someone home most of the time, and he needs a quiet, calm environment. Apollo's foster mom is looking forward to getting to know Apollo. Come back soon to find out what she learns about adorable Apollo.

I am looking for my forever home

Cooper and Bella Mia. We love each other
Florida
Bella Mia (and Cooper)

Meet Bella Mia. She is a little 8-year-old sweet baby girl. Bella Mia is only 6.3 pounds of adorableness. Bella and her Maltese brother Cooper need to be adopted together. She is being fostered in Leesburg, FL.

UPDATED BIO 07/20/2019: Beautiful Bella Mia and her adorable Maltese brother Cooper have settled nicely into their foster home. Their little personalities are starting to come out. Bella loves to play with toys and will play fetch with her foster mom. She likes to walk around like she is a little princess. She loves to cuddle and be on your lap. At night she will get right next to her person and sleep by their side all night.

Bella is a jumper - her little legs can propel her pretty high for such a little girl. She surprised her foster parents the other day when they found her on the kitchen table. That little Jack Rabbit jumped from the floor to the chair and then onto the table. She was hoping to find something good to eat. We let her know that doggies do not belong on the table.

Bella is a good eater and is very good in the car. She walks nicely on the leash as well. Bella did great at the groomers. She was a perfect little girl. It appears at this time that she is pretty well house trained. She will use the potty pad in the house and when taken out will do her business outside.

Bella likes to check out the television when she sees or hears a dog or another animal, like a hedgehog, she will look at the TV and bark at them. It is so funny to see.

Bella and Cooper have been together almost their whole lives. Bella is a bit more independent than Cooper, though you can tell she is very fond of him.

Bella and Cooper are fine with other dogs, but they would prefer being the only two dogs in the home. They love people and love the attention from people. They are both small and therefore cannot go to a home with children under the age of 14 years old. They would prefer a stay-at-home mom and/or dad, since their people are very important to them.

Anyone who is lucky enough to adopt these two sweet, sweet pups will have the best little dogs ever. They will make you smile from ear to ear. With Bella Mia and Cooper, it will always be double the fun, double the happiness, and double the love.

Initial bio 7-14-19 Little Bella Mia and her brother Cooper were sadly surrendered to United Yorkie Rescue when circumstances in the life of their former family changed. They knew Bella Mia and Cooper needed United Yorkie Rescue to find them a family who could and would be better able to care for them.

Bella and Cooper arrived at their foster home today. Bella Mia has a lot of energy for a 9 year old pup. She is a good jumper and may be a runner. A fenced yard might be ideal for her. Both pups were excellent in the car and slept most of the long ride to their foster home. They enjoyed the backyard, which they both explored. They seem to like people and being with their people. They also are getting along fine with the other dogs in their foster home.

Bella Mia will need a little grooming. She needs a nice summer hair cut. Both Bella and her brother Cooper will be seeing the vet soon for fully doggie check ups, blood work, and to be updated on their vaccinations.

If you think you may want double the love, double the cuddling, and double the fun you may want to consider adopting these two pups. There is so much more to know about these two sweethearts. Please come back soon and find out what it is.

Cheechie

Cheechie is an adorable Yorkie mix. He is 10 years old and weighs a chubby 16 lbs. Cheechie is being fostered in Ft. Myers, FL.

THANK YOU TO CHEECHI'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Irene and Peter Havas, Taylor Spino, Angie Cagle, Irene and Peter Havas in memory of darling Happy, Paul Sherman, Nestor Sanchez

UPDATED BIO 06/22/2019: Cheechie here – I wanted to give all my fans an update to let you know that I am doing okay and still waiting for my forever home. I am a very mellow boy with a sweet personality, just as quiet as can be and that’s how I like to live. No parties or wild stuff like these little hoodlum yorkies that I live with. Geesh, I can’t even watch a movie in peace around here.

I do have a heart mumur that requires me to take 4 different medications 2x a day, but they keep me going and I don’t have any complaints. I like medication time cuz I get tasty meatballs that foster mom hide the meds in. She's not fooling me at all – I’m a smart cookie who’s been around the block, but the meatballs are so worth taking. I just pretend that I don’t know so she will be happy and keep giving me meatballs. I am great on the leash, house-trained and will also use a pee-pee pad if the weather is bad.

If you are quiet and mellow, then we should hook up cuz I’m quiet and mellow too!

You won't be sorry if you adopt me, and we will both get to watch a movie in peace - together. BONUS! Ummmm, don’t ask me to be a guard dog cuz I’m more of a lover boy and don’t have a high-prey personality. So your squirrels, lizards, birds and possibly cats are safe with me.

Thanks for considering me. Oh, and I am really cute, too. So ….. in closing, my perfect home would be one with a laid-back atmosphere and attitude and someone to love me forever for the rest of my life. Oh, and I like to watch movies, don’t forget that one.

NOTE FROM FOSTER MOM: Please don’t turn away from this sweet and precious boy due to his age or the fact that he needs daily medication. He is an amazing companion dog who only wants his very own family to love. He will reward you with being your best couch buddy – and lot of love in return.

UPDATED BIO 05/14/2019: Cheechie is a wonderful laid-back and mellow boy. He is a bigger yorkie mix boy who has a sweet personality, is leash-trained and will use a pee-pee pad. Don’t ask him to be a guard dog – Cheechie just wants to be a lover. He has a calm and loving personality, so squirrels, lizards, birds and possibly cats are safe with Cheechie for sure.

Cheechie does have a Grade IV heart murmur and is under medical care. He will need to stay on heart meds for the rest of his life. His diet is being adjusted to help him lose some weight and become more active.

Cheechie came into rescue with his brother Chongie. They were placed in a crate and abandoned in a church parking lot with a bag of food. He loves his brother very much and it would be awesome if they could be adopted together, but it would also be okay if they went to different forever homes as well. They both kinda do their own thing - Cheechie loves laying on the couch and watching TV and Chongie is very playful.

Cheechie’s perfect home would be a calm and quiet atmosphere with people to love him and let him live out his remaining years in comfort. If Chongie could come along, it would be perfect!

NOTE FROM FOSTER MOM: Please don’t turn away from this sweet and precious boy due to his age or the fact that he needs daily medication. He is an amazing companion dog who only wants his very own family to love. He will reward you with being your best couch buddy – and lot of love in return.

UPDATED BIO 04/13/2019: Hi everybody, it's Cheech here, lovingly called Cheechie at my foster home. I am a good boy but kinda on the lazy side – for now. Foster Mom said that I really need to be walked on a regular basis so that I can – ummmm – lose a bit of weight. Right now, my favorite thing to do is hang around the house and watch TV. What’s wrong with that? I would love to have a snack while I’m watching TV, but Foster Mom says “no no Cheechie. We are on a diet.” So I get a green bean for a snack. Wow!

I came into UYR with my buddy Chong. You may remember that our previous owner dropped us both off in a church parking lot and we were in a crate together. That wasn’t very nice, was it? But we won the lottery since a very nice person found us and got in touch with UYR – and we love our Foster Mom & Dad.

I love Chong very much and it would be awesome to be adopted into the same home with him, but I would also be okay if we went to different forever homes as well. We both kinda do our own thing - he only cares about playing – a lot - and I am more of a couch potato right now.

So .... if you have a quiet home and don't expect me to do any heavy lifting or wash windows, then I may be your perfect pal. I’ll be your constant buddy if you like to watch TV, as long as I get to go on several walks every day so that I can “slim down”. What does that even mean anyway?

NOTE FROM FOSTER MOM: Please don’t turn away from Cheech due to his age. He has many more years to be a loyal and loving companion to his adopter. Older dogs, like older people, need love too and Cheech has a lot of that to give.

UPDATED BIO 02/23/2019: Cheech is doing very well in his foster home. He is a very laid back kinda fella and agreeable with all people and pups. Cheech can be a little lazy, but that could be attributed to his Grade IV heart murmur . However, he does show some pep in his step when meal time is approaching. Cheech is doing well with his house-training and enjoys a stroll around the back yard. Foster Mom has found that he needs encouragement to get up and about because he does need to lose a pound or two. So, no dessert for Cheechie, just sweet kisses and hugs.

Cheech loves his friend Chong and they do well together. They may do their own thing during the day but when night settles in, they stay with each other - comfy in the security of friendship. So Foster Mom would love to see them remain together.

UPDATED BIO 02/15/2019: Cheech and his brother Chong are acclimating nicely to their foster home after being abandoned in a crate dumped in a church parking lot, along with a bag of food. Cheech has seen the vet and began the process of updating his vaccinations. Thankfully both dogs are heartworm & fecal negative. Cheech does need a dental badly, but will a radiograph of his heart should be done prior to anesthesia since he has a Heart Murmur. He has been started on antibiotics for the skin infection from scratching due to an infestation of fleas and should feel better really soon.

Because Cheech is a chubby 16 lbs, Foster Mom has him on a weight-reduction diet so that he can be a healthier and happier weight. He does limp a bit in the rear, but it is hoped that there is nothing significant going on like a torn or rupture of his CCL (Cranial Cruciate Ligament) – similar to the ACL in humans. He is on a course of Metacam for two weeks to see if this gives him some relief. Stay tuned for more information on both Cheech and Chong as his foster parents get to know them better.

PLEASE NOTE: Cheech and Chong are bonded and must be adopted together.

Initial Bio 1-15-19 Cheech and his brother Chong were abandoned in a church parking lot. They were in a crate with a bag of food sitting next to the crate. We know very little about them except they are very attached to each other. Cheech is overweight and will need to lose quite a bit of weight.

Cheech will be seeing the vet very soon. At that time he will receive all his vaccinations, a heartworm and fecal text, as well as blood work. More than likely he will also need a dental and possibly other vet care. As soon as Cheech has his vet appointment we will know more, so watch for more information on this guy coming soon.

Cheech and Chong are bonded and must be adopted together.

I am very sweet and playful too.

Chongie

Chongie is a yorkie mix who is 5-1/2 years old and weighs a chubby 18 lbs. He is being fostered in Ft. Myers, FL.

THANK YOU TO CHONGIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

UPDATED BIO 06/17/2019: Hi everybody – Chongie here. I’m checking in with all my people that may want to adopt me. You already know that I am a great boy. I am quiet, and the only time I may grumble is if you don't throw me the ball. I do require a kong ball and a plush toy. A boy has to have choices because sometimes you feel like a squeak and sometimes you don't.

I would like a yard to frolic in but if you don’t have a fenced yard, then a few long walks everyday would be fun, too. My potty habits have improved and I still do have an accident here and there, but I am getting better and better. I enjoy being with my family whether we are playing or just watching TV.

Well, that's all for now, folks. You can email my foster mom with any questions and I promise she is going to tell you the same things I did. Oh, and I’m sure she will say lots more sweet things about me.

UPDATED BIO 05/21/2019: Hi everybody – Chongie here. Just wanted you to remind you that I am still waiting for my furever home. I am simply shocked that someone hasn't noticed all of my charm yet. Foster Mom says I am a really good kid. She loves me and says "Chongie, you’re such a good boy and I am sure your new home is just around the corner." I sure do hope she is right – I am so ready to begin my new life in my forever home. I’ve been here since February – it’s great here but I’m looking for my forever and ever parents.

I love my brother Cheechie very much and it would be awesome to be adopted into the same home with him, but I would also be okay if we went to different forever homes as well. We both kinda do our own thing - he only cares about laying on the couch and watching TV and I love playing.

I have made good progress with my house-training. I will go on pee-pee pads and also will go outside; I only have an accident here and, but it’s not too often. You may remember that I had bladder stone surgery – not very much fun. I will need to be kept on a special diet so I won’t get any more bladder stones and it is really yummy. Foster Mom said that it costs the same as a high-quality dog food, and you know I am worth it!

You may be wondering what I need in my forever …… here’s a short list:

- I need a loving and fun mom and/or dad who will take me on walks and play with me.

- A fenced yard would be pawsome, but if you walk me a few times a day then I will be ok with that.

- I will need (2) new Kong balls a month. Yes, I really am hard on them but I just love them.

- And since you will be shopping for the new Kongs, feel free to pick up a new squeak toy as well. No sense going for just a couple of balls.

- I like to sleep with you, too. Sometimes I will opt for an ottoman that is close by. But just assume we will be together, lol!

Well that's really all I have to say for now – you know what to do - email Foster Mom with any questions that you may have about me. Look forward to meeting you soon.

UPDATED BIO 04/13/2019: Hi, it’s Chong here, lovingly called Chongo in my foster home. It's Mr. Chongo in some circles. I am a pretty laid-back fellow. I do love to have a ball or toy to chew on and am playful as well. I like being around my people – a lot. I hang out with the other pups here too. I need to lose some weight so it would be a good idea for me to go on walks 2-3x a day to help me do that.

I came into UYR with my buddy Cheech. You may remember that our previous owner dropped us both off in a church parking lot and we were in a crate together. That wasn’t very nice, was it? But we won the lottery since a very nice person found us and got in touch with UYR – and we love our Foster Mom & Dad.

I love Cheech very much and it would be awesome to be adopted into the same home with him, but I would also be okay if we went to different forever homes as well. We both kinda do our own thing - he only cares about laying on the couch and watching TV and I love playing.

I did have surgery to remove some bladder stones after coming to my foster home, but I am doing great now and feel so much better. I am on a special diet now and need to be on this diet for the rest of my life so that the stones don’t come back. At first, I tried the food that was called pate’ – I think that’s a fancy French word. I didn't like it at all. Foster Mom then tried the beef stew and it was a big winner with me.

If you looking for a doggie companion that is game to try new things, then I would be your guy. I am very easy-to-please and even easier to love. Oh, and I sleep in the bed. The big bed that is. Don't worry, I will leave room for you, too.

UPDATED BIO 02/23/2019: Hi everybody, it's me - Chong! Well, I had my surgery to remove the stones in my bladder and I am doing very good. They say some people have rocks in their head – well, I had rocks in my bladder! And these rocks must have been like diamonds because they sure did cost a lot to take them out. This bill rocked my world.

I want to thank everyone so much for caring about me and all the well wishes that you sent. If you can please help me get this bill behind me, I would be so grateful – and relieved. Thanks again; and if you would like to donate towards my vetting expenses, you can click the donate button below and both me and UYR would so appreciative. And your donation will allow UYR to continue to take in dogs like me with medical issues.

UPDATED BIO 02/16/2019: URGENT UPDATE! Chong saw the doctor recently for a bladder infection and medication was prescribed. However, even though he was getting along well and enjoying playing and frolicking about, he still had blood in his urine. He saw the vet today and they did some testing and discovered that he had bladder stones and needed emergency surgery. Chong is perplexed since he never ate stones and couldn't understand how they could get in his bladder! He is in emergency surgery right now. Hopefully all will go well and he will soon be home to his brother Cheech who is missing him.

Chong's surgery is expected to cost approximately $1,000. We are urgently asking our rescue angels to please consider making a donation towards his vetting expenses so that UYR can continue to help little homeless dogs like Chong. Every donation helps.

UPDATED BIO 01/19/2019: Chong and his brother Cheech are acclimating nicely to their foster home after being abandoned in a crate dumped in a church parking lot, along with a bag of food. Chong has seen the vet and began the process of updating his vaccinations. Thankfully both dogs are heartworm & fecal negative. Chong does need a dental badly and this will be scheduled soon.

Because Chong is a chubby 18 lbs, Foster Mom has him on a weight-reduction diet so that he can be a healthier and happier weight. Stay tuned for more information on both Chong and Cheech as his foster parents get to know them better.

PLEASE NOTE: Chong and Cheech are bonded and must be adopted together.

Initial Bio 1-15-19 Chong and his brother Cheech were abandoned in a church parking lot. They were in a crate with a bag of food sitting next to the crate. We know very little about them except they are very attached to each other. Chong is overweight and will need to lose some weight.

I am so cute. You know you want me and Bella Mia

Cooper and Bella Mia. We love each other
Florida
Cooper and Bella Mia

Meet adorable Cooper. He is a little 7-year-old sweet Maltese boy. Cooper is 7.6 pounds of sweetness. Cooper and his sister Bella Mia need to be adopted together. Cooper is being fostered in Leesburg, FL.

UPDATED BIO 07/20/2019: Cooper and his Yorkie sister Bella Mia have settled nicely into their foster home. Their little personalities are starting to come out. Cooper loves to cuddle and sit on his foster mom or dad’s lap. He is happiest when he is with his people and Bella is nearby. Cooper is a smart little fellow. On the first day at his foster home he taught himself how to use the doggie steps going up and down to his foster parents’ bed. He likes to relax and nap on the bed during the day. You can often find him on the bed lying on top of the pile of pillows looking out at everything. At bedtime he likes to sleep next to his foster mom or dad.

Cooper is a good eater. He is good in the car and walks nicely on the leash. He is most likely house trained and will use the potty pad and will also do his business when taken out. This little ball of white fluff likes to wander around the backyard and has made sure to let the other dogs in his foster home know the backyard is his territory too.

Cooper gets along fine with the other dogs, but he would prefer being an only dog with only him and Bella in the home. He loves people as much as he loves Bella, so a stay-at-home mom and/or dad would be important for him and Bella. Cooper and Bella are both small, therefore they can’t be adopted into a home with children under the age of 14 years old.

Anyone who is lucky enough to adopt these two sweet, sweet pups will have the best little dogs ever. They will make you smile from ear to ear. With Cooper and Bella, it will always be double the fun, double the happiness, and double the love.

Initial bio 7-14-19 Little Cooper and his sister Bella were sadly surrendered to United Yorkie Rescue when circumstances in the life of their former family changed. They knew Cooper and Bella Mia needed United Yorkie Rescue to find them a family who could and would be better able to care for them.

Cooper and Bella arrived at their foster home today. Cooper spent a lot of time exploring his new home and yard. A fenced yard might be ideal for Cooper. Both pups were excellent in the car and slept most of the long ride to their foster home. They enjoyed the backyard, which they both explored. They seem to like people and being with their people. They also are getting along fine with the other dogs in their foster home.

Both Cooper and his sister Bella Mia will be seeing the vet soon for fully doggie check ups, blood work, and to be updated on their vaccinations.

If you think you may want double the love, double the cuddling, and double the fun you may want to consider adopting these two pups. There is so much more to know about these two sweethearts. Please come back soon and find out what it is.

Am I cute or what

Please come cuddle with me

Harmony

Harmony is a very sweet girl who has been through a lot. She is about 10 years old and weighs a skinny 9.2 pounds. Harmony is being fostered in Altamonte Springs, FL.

THANK YOU TO HARMONY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Irene and Peter Havas in memory of darling Happy, Patricia Riddle, Nestor Sanchez

UPDATED BIO 06/26/2019: Sweet Harmony was found on the streets in horrible condition. Fast Forward a few days – she is thriving and loving life in her foster home. Here’s what she had to say just today:

Harmony here. I'm feeling so much better now! I've been getting some good medicine and good food since I was rescued, and my skin condition is almost all healed. My hair loss turned out just to be environmental allergies, probably from being on the streets as long as I was without anyone to take care of me; and the doctor says my hair should grow back just fine. I had bilateral ear infections, but I'll only be on my ear medicine for 7 more days, because they are feeling so much better.

The vet said that I would be healthier if I weighed a couple more pounds – my healthy weight should be 10-1/2 to 11 pounds. I can tell you right now that gaining some weight will not be a problem because I'm eating like a horse. I have bilateral cataracts and have very little vision in my left eye, but still have some vision in my right eye. This doesn't stop me from getting around without a hitch. Because of my impaired vision, I'm sleeping in a comfy dog bed on the floor. Foster Mom said that is safer for me than sleeping in the big human bed since she is afraid I could fall off and hurt myself. Hey, I’m just happy to have a bed to sleep in ‘cuz sleeping on the streets wasn’t much fun.

Foster Mom says that I'm a really sweet and quiet girl. Although I'm not used to walking on a leash, I'm learning to like that and I especially like being out in the sun and rolling in the grass. I've had all my vaccinations, and will be getting my teeth all shiny and clean tomorrow, and then I'll be ready to go to a new home with whoever wants me to love them the most!

Here’s what I need in my forever home:

- No children under 14 years old – this is for my safety since I’m vision-impaired

- A home with a fenced-in yard would be great since I am getting good at going potty outside, but I may have accidents inside until I get accustomed to the new smells and routine of a new home.

- I will be fine being your only four-legged companion, but if you have another dog close to my age and size, I’ll be okay with that, too.

Initial Bio 6/20/19 Little Harmony was found on the streets in horrible condition. Just look at her sad picture. She has severe hair loss on her back and sides. It is likely she has a very bad bacterial and yeast infection on her skin and in her ears. She smelled awful. The shelter did what they could for her. They gave her antibiotics for her skin and her ears, and they worked very hard to get her to a foster home as soon as possible. When she arrived at her foster home her foster mom gave her a nice warm medicated shampoo bath. After her bath she smelled better, but her skin is still itchy. She has on a baby onesie to cover the bare skin and scabs and to keep her from scratching.

Harmony has a cataract in one eye, but she does see. She walked all around her foster home exploring everything. She even cruised the backyard. She gobbled down her meals and loved the treats she was offered including some steamed broccoli. She was happy in her little doggie bed. Harmony was fine with the other dogs in the home, although she didn't have anything to do with them she blended in just fine.

Harmony will be seeing her vet very soon. At that time she will have blood work done, her skin and ears checked, and given a full physical exam. She will be prescribed the medication she needs to get healthy so she can go to her forever home. Please help us help sweet Harmony and donate to her care. She is not sure she can trust people yet, so let's show her there is still wonderful people in the world who care and who love her.

I am such a pretty and sweet girlie

I am looking for a loving forever home
Florida
Kendra

Sweet Kendra is 6-1/2 years old and weighs a healthy 9 lbs. She is being fostered in Palm Coast, FL.

THANK YOU TO KENDRA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Michelle Pannoni, Debra Bass, Nestor Sanchez, Nestor Sanchez

UPDATED BIO 07/01/2019: Sweet little Kendra is patiently waiting for her perfect forever parents to find her. She has been through a lot for such a young little girl, but is learning just how wonderful it is to get lots of love.

Kendra rides well in the car and loves to go on outings. She has mastered the doggie steps to the couch and loves to sit with Foster Mom to relax and watch TV. But by far, Kendra’s most favorite activity is to go out in the fenced-in yard and soak up the sun. A home with a fenced-in yard would be a BONUS for sure.

Kendra’s Foster Mom feels that she would do best in a home with at least one other dog close to her size and age to hang out with since she is learning how much fun it can be to have a playmate. Kendra is still a little bit on the shy side, but with patience and love, she will surely become your little Princess in no time.

UPDATED BIO 06/16/2019: Hi all - Kendra here with a little update on how I’m doing. I’m now being fostered in Palm Coast, Florida. Foster Mom says I am progressing so fast it's time to let you all know what’s going on with me. Well, I think I may be just 8.6 pounds now ‘cause of this new diet I’m on, but Foster Mom says I'm perfect in every way.

I just love Foster Mom and Dad and especially love sitting on their laps to watch TV. I am just amazed at all the wonderful people and doggies I have gotten to meet already, and I haven't met one that I didn't like, so this is a good thing, right? I've been coming out of my shell and now just love being part of an active family – and I still enjoy a little nap time thrown in lol! When Foster Mom says it's time to eat or go potty, I'm right there with the rest of the resident doggie gang. I'm still working on the potty outside and think I’ve almost got it, but if I have an accident it's really no big deal and it only happens once in a while.

I am also learning to use the doggie steps to come up with Foster Mom and my doggie siblings, but need to master how to come down. Oh well, that will only take a few more days ‘cause I'm not only adorable, but a very smart little girl. I love playing with the other doggies here so another small dog for me would be wonderful, and I really would like to have a fenced-in yard to keep me safe.

If you like what you've read about me so far, just fill out an adoption application and put my name KENDRA on there. Until then, I'll be livin’ large and hangin’ out in Palm Coast, Florida.

UPDATED BIO 06/03/2019: Kendra continues to adjust to life in her foster home, where her foster mom is continuing to help her learn that she doesn’t need to be afraid of new people in her life and that all the people whom she will meet in the future will touch her with loving and kind hands. She likes to lie next to foster mom and enjoys her company more and more. Kendra is learning about toys and playing and her little tail has begun to wag during playtime, which surely does enhance her life since she never had that opportunity before in the puppy mill.

Although Kendra spent most of her life in a puppy mill, she has learned that life can be adventurous, happy and carefree and she is ready to let go of her former life and adapt to a new one, full of love and new fun experiences. Kendra is so smart, sweet and curious – she is now going outside to potty and will also use a pee-pee-pad if the weather is not so inviting. She sleeps nicely in her crate at night and loves mealtime.

Here’s what Kendra needs in her furever home:

- A fenced-in yard would be wonderful since she is more comfortable being leash-free and running to her heart’s content.

- A home where there is at least one stay-at-home adult who can continue to help her adjust to being a beloved companion dog. She would be okay with children over the age of 12 years old.

- Another calm and low-key doggie companion close to her size and age since she really likes the company of another dog.

UPDATED BIO 04/23/2019: Kendra here. I wanted to let people know that I am getting to learn what it is to be a beloved doggie companion! In the beginning I was so afraid ‘cause I didn't know what to expect. Foster Mom has helped me learn that people want to love me and they do not want me to be afraid. I'm starting to have eye contact with people and its OK for me to spend time on a chair or in bed with them.

Here’s some bonus news - I am going outside to do my business. I sleep in a crate at night and am excited to go outside to potty when Foster Mom gets up. I eat my dry kibble in the kitchen with the big dog, but I am still afraid another dog will take my food since that’s what happened in my previous life.

I’m trying to learn to trust people and learn other doggie things. There are times I act playful with my tail wagging and a smile, but hesitate ‘cause I’m not sure what to do. I am searching for a furever home with people who will help me continue to adjust to living outside of a puppy mill. I would prefer stay at home adults who can help me continue to adjust

Here’s what I need in my furever home:

- A fenced-in yard since I’m not doing too well with that leash thing

- A home where there is at least stay-at-home adult who can continue to help me adjust to life outside the puppy mill.

I know I will learn to love you but will just need time to learn about being a doggie. So if you have a lot of patience and love to give to me, I will be loyal and loving right back.

I know I am cute

Yes I am a handsome fella
Florida
Rocco

Rocco is a tiny 8 year old 6 pound cutie. He is being fostered in Orlando, FL.

THANK YOU TO ROCCO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Mary Katherine Hill, Ann Fillmen, Behnaz Memarzadeh, Barbara Burgess

UPDATED BIO 06/29/2019: Hi, it's me - Rocco. I’m back – again - because I am really sad now. Why you ask? I have been in my foster home for 3 months and I’m beginning to feel like I'll never have the perfect forever home.

You see, my first owner was a man and he didn't treat me very well. This lasted for over four years and I'm only eight years old. Yikes, that's half of my life! Since leaving that horrible place, I've been in two other homes. As nice as those people were to me, I still had trouble trying to adjust to the men in those homes. I would get scared and growl at the man in the home, who was very kind to me, but I couldn’t trust them because of my past experience. This made them afraid to be around me, which made me even more sad.

I have been with my sweet foster mom since the beginning of April. She understands doggies like me and has been helping me with my trust issues. She says I'm making progress and is very proud of me. I recently surprised her when I interacted with a male neighbor. He loves little doggies like me (he has three of them) and he got down on the ground with me. This made me very happy, so I asked for a belly rub! I gave him kisses and he gave me more belly rubs. I just loved it. My little tail was wagging so much that I thought it might fall off. I was so happy.

My foster mom said this was a huge breakthrough for me and I might be able to go to a new home with fewer restrictions than she originally put on my forever home. In order for me to continue making progress, I need to be in a home with no more than two adults. No children or cats, puleeze. If there is a dad, I would have to meet him first to make sure I like him. He must be gentle, kind and understanding. Above all, he must love me. It would probably be okay if there was another small, calm doggie in the home. My foster mom has another doggie and we get along well. My ideal home will have a mom (and maybe a dad), who is retired or works from home. I cannot be left alone for long periods of time.

I am cute as a bug. I am neutered, current on all my vaccinations, microchipped and have had a dental cleaning. I am on Bravecto for flea/tick prevention and HeartGuard for heartworm prevention. I also take a few medications to help me with joint pain from my luxating left knee - they are Galliprant and Flex 2500 - the monthly cost of these two medications is approximately $25 - and I am so worth it. Don't worry, I can still run and jump without any trouble.

I am house-trained, but I wear a belly band in the house because I sometimes lift my leg to mark. I've never pooped in the house though, so that is a good thing. I always let my foster mom know when I need to go outside. I love to run in the backyard, so a fenced yard would be nice, but not required as long as I can go for several long walks each day. I love to go for walks.

If you feel you would be the kind of home I need, please click on the application link below. I hope you're the forever parents I'm looking for. I’m still waiting and trying to remember that my perfect home is out there somewhere – just dreaming about and hoping to have a wonderful and loyal companion like me.

Rocco out for now.

UPDATED BIO 06/20/2019: Hi, it's me - Rocco. I’m back – again - because I am really sad now. Why you ask? I have been in my foster home for 3 months and I’m beginning to feel like I'll never have the perfect furever home.

You see, my first owner was a man and he didn't treat me very well. This lasted for over four years and I'm only eight years old. Yikes, that's half of my life! Since leaving that horrible place, I've been in two other homes. As nice as those people were to me, I still had trouble trying to adjust to the men in those homes. I would get scared and growl at the man in the home, who was very kind to me, but I couldn’t trust them because of my past experience. This made them afraid to be around me, which made me even more sad.

I have been with my sweet foster mom since the beginning of April. She understands doggies like me and has been helping me with my trust issues. She says I'm making progress and is very proud of me. My foster mom says there are a few conditions I will need in my new home for me to continue making progress. Here they are:

- I need to be in a home that has only one mom, no one else

- There can be NO men, children, dogs or cats living in the home

Due to my unique requirements, my foster mom would like to have a meet and greet with my prospective adoptive mom to ensure that we are the perfect fit. My ideal home will have a mom who is retired or works from home. I cannot be left alone for long periods of time. My preferred adopter is a woman who has some experience with doggies like me. I want to be the best I can be and a mom who understands me would really help. Patience and love is key in allowing me to trust and be a loving companion to my furever mom.

I am cute as a bug. I am neutered, current on all my vaccinations, microchipped and have had a dental cleaning. I am on Brevecto for flea/tick prevention and HeartGuard for heartworm prevention. I also take a few medications to help me with joint pain from my luxating left knee - they are Galliprant and Flex 2500 - the monthly cost of these two medications is approximately $25 - and I am so worth it.

UPDATED BIO 05/08/2019: Hi, it's me - Rocco. I am getting sad – why? Because I am starting to feel like I'll never have the perfect forever home. You see, I wasn't treated well in my first home and as nice as the people have been to me since leaving that horrible place, I've been having trouble trying to adjust to the kindness I've been shown. I still get scared at times and will growl at the kind people. This makes them afraid to be around me, which makes me even more sad. My sweet foster mom is working with me on making my trust issues.

I so desperately want a loving forever home. If you want to know more about me and my needs for my forever home, please read my earlier bios. Here are a few conditions that will help me to adjust easier to my forever home.

- I need to be in a home that has only one mom, no one else.

- There can be no men, children, dogs or cats living in the home.

- There cannot be a swimming pool either.

- - Due to Rocco's unique requirements, his adoptive mom will need to live within an hour's drive of Orlando, FL. Rocco’s foster mom would like to have several Meet-and-Greets with his adoptive mom to ensure that his new home will be the perfect fit for him.

My ideal home will have a mom who is retired or works from home. I do not like to be left alone for long periods of time. My preferred adopter is a woman who has some experience with dogs like me that have had some trauma in their lives, or who is a behavioral specialist or an experienced dog owner/trainer. I want to be the best I can be and a mom with previous experience with doggies like me would really help.

I am as cute as a bug. I am current on all my vaccinations, microchipped and have had a dental cleaning. I take a few medications to help me with joint and osteoarthritis pain from my luxating left knee – they are Galliprant and Dasuquin – the monthly cost is approximately $25 – and I am so worth it! Don't worry, I can still run and jump. I am house-trained. I wear a belly band in the house because I sometimes lift my leg to mark. I've never pooped in the house though so that is a good thing. I always let my foster mom know when I have to go outside.

I love to run in the backyard, so a fenced yard would be nice, but not required as long as I can go for several long walks each day. I love to go for walks. If you feel you would be the kind of mom I need, please click on the adoption application link below. I hope you're the one I'm looking for. Rocco out for now.

UPDATED BIO 04/04/2019: Hi there – Rocco here. Will you be my new mom? I have been fully vetted, neutered, current on all my vaccinations and am also microchipped. I recently had my teeth cleaned and I didn't need to have any teeth pulled. Yay for me!

I’m really healthy, but I do have a luxating left patella and my right hip bone has an odd shape to it, but that doesn't affect my ability to walk or run. Hey, I'm a Yorkie, it's gonna happen. I take a pill every day to help with any pain I occasionally have. and also take a supplement to help my joints. My foster mom slips the pills in my food. She thinks I don't know she does this, but it helps me to walk and run in the backyard, so I don't mind.

I love to spend time with my Foster Mom. She puts me on her lap and I curl up and go to sleep. I love to have my head and ears scratched, but not my back so much. I love car rides and walks in the neighborhood. I also like running and exploring the fenced backyard at Foster Mom's home.

I do, however, have some special requirements for my new home. Here’s what they are:

- I MUST be in a home with only my new mommy. I don't want to share my mom with anyone else. There CANNOT be any men, children, cats or other dogs in my new home.

- I cannot be left alone for long periods of time - this will make me very sad, so I need a mom who is retired or works from home. This is very important to me.

- My new home CANNOT have a swimming pool. I know there are a lot of restrictions, but trust me, I'm so worth it.

- Did I say I didn’t want to share my home with other cats & dogs? Just making sure.

If you read my previous bio, you know the reason why there can be no men or a swimming pool at my new home. You see, when I was with my first owner, he didn't get me groomed very often and my hair got all tangled and the tangles hurt when they pulled on my skin. Then, when I needed a bath, the man would throw me in the swimming pool and this scared me so much! This went on for over 4 years! So, now you know why I don't like men or swimming pools. Because of this, I still don't like getting a bath. You'll have to be very careful with me when it's bath time. I will probably be very upset and growl at you.

You may be thinking I'm a mean little boy, but I'm really not. As long as you are aware of the bad experience I had, we'll be best buds. I just want a new mom who will love me unconditionally and I will love you right back. You will see how very sweet and loving and loyal I will be to you – forever.

I'd love to meet you, but first you'll need to submit an application for me and if you've previously had a vet, my Foster Mom will need to get a reference from their office. Because I think we should meet first, it would be best if you live no more than an hour away from Orlando where I am living with my Foster Mom. I look forward to meeting you. XOXOXOXO, Rocco

Initial Bio 3/15/19 Rocco has had a rocky road from his very early days until he became a United Yorkie Rescue dog. He was bought from a breeder as a puppy. He lived with his first family for four and a half years. This family decided they no longer wanted Rocco because he was a bother. So they were ready to turn him into the SPCA. As luck would have it that very same day a couple came into the SPCA looking for a little dog and saw this man holding this little Yorkie. He was matted and dirty and needed major attention.

This nice couple took this little dog. Rocco was a scared and angry little guy for quite a while. Rocco was so scared that at the vet clinic he was aggressive to the vet. In order to examine him and get him up to date on his vaccinations they had to sedate him. While sedated they also shaved him down to the skin to get rid of the mats. His new mom and dad worked with him, but soon discovered he was not fond of men very much and really only liked women. This was most likely due to being abused by the man in his first family. These nice people worked hard with Rocco and he made great progress. They had Rocco for 3 years and during those years they had two children, they both worked, and their once quiet home became noisy and loud and full of activity.

Last year Rocco's family decided Rocco needed a much quieter, more sedate home life. Rocco’s dad’s mother having gotten to know Rocco from baby sitting the two young kids offered to take Rocco in. Rocco was now in his third home. Although Rocco has made so much progress under the love and care of both his last families he was still was unhappy because there was a man in the house and men still were his least favorite people. With much regret and knowing how far Rocco has come it was decided he really needed a home where it would only be Rocco and his mom, no men, no kids, and maybe one other small dog, but even no other dog would be better. A fenced yard would be great, but he does fine on a leash.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION! ROCCO WILL ONLY BE CONSIDERED FOR ADOPTION TO A FEMALE ONLY HOME – he bonds tightly to only one person and doesn’t like to “share” their affections with anyone else. He cannot go to a home that includes another woman or man, children and cats. Rocco can be placed in a home with another small (no bigger than 10-12 lbs) dog who is mellow and non-aggressive. There will be no exceptions made.

Rocco has only been in his foster home about two weeks and his foster mom will need a little time to figure him out. Please check for updates on this adorable little boy.

I am looking for my special forever home
Florida
Rosie

Rosie is a sweet senior Yorkie. She is about 10 years old and weighs 8 pounds. Rosie is being fostered in St. Augustine, FL

Initial Bio 7/20/19 Rosie is a beautiful senior Yorkie. Her former mom's medical issues made it very hard for her to care for Rosie any longer. She reached out to United Yorkie Rescue to help her. Sadly, and with tears, she knew Rosie had to be a UYR girl to get the care she could no longer provide for her.

Rosie will be seeing the vet very soon. She has cataracts but she can see. She will need all her vaccinations updated, as well as a heartworm test and blood work.

Rosie only arrived at her foster home today and seems to be checking everything out. She may be a senior, but she is as curious about her new surroundings and home as a young pup. After Rosie's vet visit her foster parents will know if she has any medical issues that need to be taken care of, as well as what she needs in her forever home. Please come back soon and get to know Rosie along with her foster mom and dad and UYR.


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

Bonded Pair
Georgia
Aria & Jasmine

Two beautiful yorkie sisters (8# each and 2 years old) who have relied on each other for their existence!

METRO ATLANTA AREA ONLY

(no exceptions)

PLEASE CONTACT: passionforanimals5017@gmail.com

Jasmine and Aria were obtained as young pups and, tragically, put outside to live in the elements 24/7 when they were about 6-8 months old! A neighbor heard their cries and couldn’t take it anymore so asked owner if she could have the dogs. Reluctantly, woman gave them up! Thank goodness as their fate surely would have been a tragic one being so small! Vet Care was not provided until they got into Rescue in June 2019.

Because of their neglectful past, they’re a little timid at first but warm up rather quickly and in such need of LOVE, AFFECTION, and NURTURING (since they did NOT get that during their young little life!)

They were examined, tested for heartworms, bathed, vaccinated, spayed and microchipped. ALL GOOD, THANKFULLY!

These PRECIOUS dogs are very bonded to each other and survived by being close when they were outdoors 24/7 in the HOT and COLD environments! We will not separate them as they are inseparable and relied on each other to survive their horrible past!

Jasmine is the darker one and more dominant of the two; Aria is the lighter one and more submissive to Jasmine

Lily Mae

Lily Mae is an 8-year-old, 11-pound Yorkie girl being fostered in Hiawasee, GA.

THANK YOU TO LILY MAE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

April Bradshaw, Holly Keller, Irene and Peter Havas

Bio Update 5/23/19

Attention UYR Fans! If you are a female who loves Yorkies, has a heart to help dogs who need some extra love, has no children and no other pets then PLEASE READ THIS! Lily Mae needs to find a loving forever home where she can be someone’s entire world. Before coming to UYR Lily pretty much “owned” her older human. As an only pet who was completely spoiled, she was allowed to do just about anything she wanted (or not), eat human food and rule her roost. As a consequence Lily became obese, developed skin issues and grew accustomed to being in charge. When Lily’s owner became unable to care for her Lily was surrendered her to UYR. There were some BIG CHANGES in store. Suddenly Lily found herself in a foster home where there were multiple other dogs to compete for her human’s time and attention. We hoped she would adjust and accept in time but Lily is still struggling with taking her place in a “pack” so we are trying very hard to find her perfect adopter where she can be an only dog. Lily’s perfect home would preferably be with a female adopter who spends lots of time at home, has no children or other pets in the home, likes to go for walks and is okay with giving Lily daily medication. Lily has a few minor, easily treated medical issues. Like lots of Yorkies, Lily takes Apoquel for skin allergies and a thyroid supplement. Lily also has inadequate tear production so she gets Optimune eye ointment daily. She takes her pills easily with her food and does not mind having her eye ointment. Lily also needs an owner who will continue to help Lily on her weight loss journey. Through a healthy diet, exercise and scheduled mealtimes Lily has lost almost a whole pound in her foster home. She LOVES going for walks so that is both a healthy habit and a reward for her. She needs to lose another pound or two to get to her ideal weight of 9-10 pounds.

Lily has recently started on some medication to help her with anxiety until we can find Lily’s perfect home. We had hoped that she’d adjust to the other pets in her foster home but after two months that doesn’t seem to be happening so Lily’s foster Mom and her Vet agree a little medication might help her in the meantime so we will see how she does on it. When Lily becomes stressed or pushed, her “go to” behavior has been to curl her lip and retreat to her crate. However, Lily has some really good days too and is beginning to give love and lap time when she doesn’t have to compete for it with other dogs. Unfortunately for Lily, ALL of our volunteer foster parents have other pets in their homes (because rescuers LOVE ANIMALS of course) but Lily doesn’t understand or accept this so she needs to be an only fur-child

Lily is an cute, chubby, funny AND sweet little dog (once she gets comfortable with you) and she will be a great companion to the right person. If you think that person is YOU, then apply to adopt Lily or email her foster Mom for additional information at equusjojo@aol.com

Bio Update 4/13/19

IF you look up the word “diva”, it SHOULD show Lily Mae’s picture! MOVE OVER Beyoncé, Barbara, Celine, and Mariah!!!! Lily Mae IS IN THE HOUSE! Before coming to UYR Lily pretty much “owned” her older human. As an only pet who was completely worshipped by her person, she was allowed to do just about anything she wanted (or not), eat human food and rule her roost. As a consequence Lily became obese, developed skin issues and also some behavioral challenges. Lily didn’t know this up front but when she came to her UYR foster home there were to be some BIG CHANGES in store. Suddenly Lily was placed into an environment where there were multiple other dogs to “put up with” and a human pack leader in charge! “The very nerve!” thought Lily. She did not like or appreciate the newly imposed structure and competition for attention. Lily spent lots of time protesting by pouting in her crate and ignoring all the other dogs. She further protested by playing the “aloof Diva” with her foster parents. If pushed, Lily would occasionally cop an attitude, turn snarly and show her teeth. But this wasn’t foster Mom’s first rodeo and she did not give in to Lily’s bossy demeanor. As a consequence, after several weeks in her foster home Lily Mae is FINALLY acknowledging that foster Mom is the WINNER in the battle of wills and is beginning to give love and lap time.

We have gotten Lily’s skin issues under control with a healthy diet and medicated shampoos. She has also lost .6 of a pound and is on her way to a healthy weight of 9-10 pounds. Lily was found to have low thyroid levels and she now takes medication for that which will also help her shed pounds. She LOVES going for walks and foster Mom is making sure she gets plenty of them as this will help Lily attain her healthy weight. Lily also has decreased tear production so she is receiving daily eye drops. She will likely need to be on thyroid medication and eye drops for life. Lily just had her teeth cleaned and now that her minor issues are addressed she is ready to start the search for her forever home.

Lily’s perfect forever person needs to have ALL of the following:

-Experience with “diva dogs” and can be a strong pack leader

-Have lots of patience and enough self discipline to not “cave” when Lily acts out or wants human food

-Be active enough to see that Lily gets frequent walks or exercise

-Have no children in the home

-Have no other pets OR no more than one other pet who is relaxed and not an alpha dog

-Is committed to Lily’s care for the long haul including her diet, and administering thyroid medicine and eye drops.

Lily is an adorably cute, chubby, funny AND sweet little dog (once she gets comfortable with you) and she will be a great companion to the right person. If you think that person is YOU, then apply to adopt Lily or email her foster Mom for additional information at equusjojo@aol.com

Initial Bio 3/9/19: Meet adorable Lily Mae. She comes to us from a loving owner who became physically unable to care for her. Her owner was very sad to have to give Lily up but she wanted the best for Lily and reached out to UYR to make sure that Lily would go to a great home that would give her the care and attention she needs. Lily has just landed in her foster home so we will be getting to know her over the next few days. Her owner stated that Lily is a very sweet and loving dog who has a tendency to get nervous around young children and younger, high energy dogs. Lily Mae is a bit on the chubby side and has some minor skin irritations but these things are very easily resolved. Lilly will have a well doggie check within the next few days to see if she has any unmet health needs, have her microchip inserted and start the search for her perfect person who will love her the rest of her days. Lilly must go to a home with no young children since tiny humans make her anxious. A fenced yard would be a plus. Stay tuned for updates as we get to know her better.


To date we've spent $1577.10 on Lily Mae's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $180.00 in donations.

Betty
Illinois
Betty

Betty is a 6 year old, 14 pound sweet Yorkie Mix being fostered in Caseyville, Illinois.

6/16/19 - Betty has now been to the vet and has also lost a whole pound! She is running around and feeling better just having that one extra pound off, but she does still have more to lose. She is up to date on her shots now, and also heart worm negative. The vet confirmed she is probably somewhere between 6 and 8 years old. She is a happy, healthy, pudgy girl. She met some kids and, while she did okay with them, would probably not be adopted to a home with small children due to her propensity to be mouthy when wanting attention and playing roughly. Teenage children would definitely be okay with Betty. She has also met other dogs, and Betty, like people, is particular about who she likes. Her dental is scheduled for the end of June and after her dental and follow up appointment, she will be ready for her new home. If you can’t resist this little face, fill out an application right away!

Initial Bio 5-31-19: Betty is a large, beautiful, lady who was surrendered by her owners. They were not her original owners, so her exact age is unknown but without having seen the vet yet, we are guessing around 8 years old. She is very sweet and so far loves every person she has met. She has not yet been introduced to any children since being in her foster home, but we will try that out this weekend and update her behavior with children.

Betty is adorable, but overweight at 12.5 pounds and needs to lose about 4 pounds. She has started a diet, along with short walks to help her slim down her figure. She also needs to be vaccinated and have a dental. She will have her first vet appointment Friday, June 7th, at which time her dental will be scheduled.

It is apparent that Betty has separation anxiety. Therefore, her ideal home would be someone who is home all day and has lots of time to spend doting on her. She also has extreme storm anxiety and may require medication in the event of severe storms. She gets along fine with her foster dog brother who is 5 lbs, although I have not yet had her around large dogs...yet another event for this coming weekend!

Betty is a great listener...she knows how to sit and come. She walks amazing on a leash and harness and stays right by your side.

If Betty is the perfect fit for you, please fill out an application. She looks forward to finding her new forever home!


To date we've spent $520.89 on Betty's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Shiloh
Illinois
Shiloh

Meet Shiloh. Shiloh is a 9-year-old, 6-pound Yorkie being fostered in Beach Park, IL.

UPDATE BIO. 05/30/19. This little princess is Shiloh who lives in Beach Park, IL with her foster mommy, daddy, three fur sisters and a fur brother. She is an adorable little 9-year-old, spayed female yorkiepoo who is doing well with her food aggression issues, however she is being fed separately from her fur sisters and fur brother as she wants to run around and check out each bowl because someone might have something better than she has in her bowl. If something falls to the floor, she is the first one there and it is considered hers. She has been in fights with her fur sisters over foster mommy accidentally dropping something on the floor and they all go for it. If something falls to the floor, a stern “NO” will often stop her and allow me to pick it up, otherwise if I simply reach down to pick it up, she will bite. Due to this habit that we are trying to break, I feel that she should not be in a home with any small children who do not understand her aggression that anything that hits the floor is hers. This is a work in progress but we have made strides and she will listen. She is very smart and learns quickly. I feel we’ve earned her trust and we always praise good behavior.

Shiloh is very comfortable in our house with her surroundings, loves to be outdoors and wants to be with her people. We have a fenced yard so she is free to run about without a leash although we have to keep a constant watchful eye on all the fur babies due to coyotes and predatory birds in the area. Because she loves to be outdoors, she really needs a fenced yard with supervision and no means of escape as the saying goes, give her an inch and she will take a mile.

If she is displeased, Shiloh will let you know by barking and it is the same if she wants your attention. She has quite a loud little bark so I don’t know if apartment or condo living would be a good idea as neighbors could complain. Shiloh does not bark excessively but she does let you know if she is displeased, wants something or is demanding attention.

She was formerly only potty pad trained but she will do her business outdoors now as well as use the potty pad indoors.

Shiloh has “floating ribs” that you can feel when you pick her up but this does not seem to cause her any discomfort or pain. The vet said she should be able to live a normal life. Shiloh had hip surgery when she was a baby and she does have some luxating patella issues in her little back legs. I am giving her glucosamine daily which seems to help. She hesitates a second or two at the bottom of the stairs before going up but then she runs right up without any problem. She goes up the stairs to our bed at night and sprawls out wherever she feels the best spot is on the bed.

Shiloh had a dental and is currently up to date on her vaccinations. For reasons listed above I feel that she should live in a home with adults only, no other pets, and preferably not in a condo or apartment as she loves her own yard and a doggie park might not be the best option. I also think she would do best in a home where someone is home with her all or most of the day. She loves walks but still pulls on the leash and wants to lead. Shiloh is a great little girl, stubborn, spoiled, and pampered, but oh so loveable and waiting for her perfect furever home. Please contact her foster mommy at yorkiefostermom04@gmail.com for more information if you think you might have room in your heart for this little doll and be able to provide a loving and caring environment.

Update 4/7/19: Shiloh is an adorable 9 year old, spayed female Yorkiepoo, about 6 pounds, residing in Beach Park, IL with her foster family. She is up to date on vaccinations but does need a dental which I have not scheduled at this time. Although she a very loving and social little lady, we are working on “resource guarding” issues. She is very aggressive with her food and will bite if she feels someone is trying to take her food away. I have been working with her to overcome this food aggression and feel I’ve made some progress but the person(s) who wish to be considered to adopt Shiloh must be willing to continue the training with diligence and patience.

Because of the incidents with food aggression and biting, I feel an adult only home with no other pets would be the best environment for Shiloh as she does show jealousy if she thinks she is being neglected when I give the other dogs attention.

Shiloh loves to be outdoors but pulls hard on the leash, so we are also working on the leash training. She requires a completely secured fenced yard with no means of escape as she will bolt and run away. She is microchipped but she does not know the dangers of traffic, wild animals and such.

Shiloh was completely potty pad trained but is now learning to go outdoors. She is using the potty pad about 1/2 the time and going outdoors the other half.

I will have updates posted on our progress with Shiloh. She is a very sweet and lovable little girl, however we do have some work to do before she is available for adoption. Any questions may be directed to me, Shiloh’s foster mom at yorkiefostermom04@gmail.com. Thank you for considering a rescue ��

Initial Bio 3/16/19: Shiloh is a little female Yorkie, 9 years old and about 6 lbs. She is residing with her foster mom, dad and fur siblings in Beach Park, IL. Because she just came to us, we are still evaluating and will post more about this little affectionate girl in the near future. Any questions may be directed via email to yorkiefostermom04@gmail.com

Thank you!

Kentucky
Mandy

Mandy is a 13 year old Yorkie girl, weighing 4.4 pounds and being fostered in Kentucky

THANK YOU TO MANDY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Paul Sherman

Initial Bio 5/26/19: I am 13 years old and am about 4.4 pounds. My foster mommy and daddy call me Mandy, and I love the sound of that name. I was rescued two years ago by this couple. They found me underneath their car with a serious cataract in my eye. I have lost vision in my left eye, and I have a cataract in my right. My vision in that eye is limited. My rescue couple believe I may have been a puppy mill momma as I have some difficulty walking from being kept in a cage. My foster mommy and daddy will be taking me to the dog-tor to find out if I have any other health issues. I like to walk around the house and ignore my fur siblings. I like to give them my squeaky bark and watch them run. If you would like to donate to my care please click on the PayPal button underneath. Stayed tuned for further information on my health:

Nigel

Nigel is a 7-year-old, 14 pound Yorkie boy being fostered in VERSALIES, KY.

Initial Bio

7/12/19

Nigel

Nigel, a fluffy fellow at 15.6 pounds, lived with his first month from the time he was eight weeks old. Sadly, she finds herself unable to provide the best care for Nigel now. When she is not working, she cares for her husband who suffers from dementia. Even though she loves Nigel to the moon and back, the cost in time and money to care for him is simply more than she can do, so Nigel is looking for his forever home with a mom or dad who can work with the dogtor to get him back to a healthy weight and manage his known medical issues.

This sweet fellow did not like staying in a separate room from his Foster Parents on the first night. Now he sleeps in a crate in her room and sleeps all night long. He is a good eater (obviously) and doesn’t fight taking his medications. Nigel displays good potty habits and has had no accidents in the house!

He relishes attention and sticks to his Foster Dad like Velcro. He enjoys being with his foster siblings and wants to play. Nigel walks well on a leash which allows FM and FD to take him for walks to build his stamina and help him shed some extra fluff. Nigel will be a great companion pup in a home with or without other small dogs.

On his second visit to the dogtor, Nigel had lost 2 pounds! The dogtor was so pleased that he was showing less anxiety, too. He has had an ear infection and a skin infection which have been treated and are greatly improved. He is up-to-date on his vaccinations and has his very own microchip now. However, Nigel does have a very large hernia for a little guy. The hernia will require repair and discussions are underway with the dogtor about the best way to fix him up.

While Nigel does not appear to want to wander away, a fenced yard would be a great idea so he can wander on his own when not on leash without worries. He will enjoy playing with his new family with sturdy dog toys that can’t easily be destroyed by tiny teeth. And, Nigel wants his forever family to pet him and love him and shower him with attention. In return, he promises to love his forever family…forever!


To date we've spent $420.26 on Nigel's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

North Carolina
Bella

Meet precious Bella. She is 3-years-old (estimated) Maltese mix and she weighs 8.5 pounds. She is being fostered in North Carolina

THANK YUO TO BELLA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Irene and Peter Havas

Update 5/26/19

Here’s our beautiful Bella, an approximately two year old female Maltese. She has stolen our hearts and will make a fantastic family dog for a very lucky family. Bella gets along wonderfully with both our Yorkie boys, as well as our four year old daughter. We visited the dogtor last week where Bella got all her vaccines up to date and it was determined that she has an eye condition called entropion. This will require surgery by a specialist in order to be corrected. Bella will also require a dental and spay. Due to upcoming surgeries, Bella will not be immediately available for adoption. Please check back for updates on Bella- she is an extremely smart, sweet and happy little girl who deserves a fantastic home.

Initial Bio 5/9/19 Bella has just arrived in her foster home and is already proving to be a total lovebug! She is sweet, playful and loving. She is also house-trained which is a big plus. Bella just had her first visit to the Dogtor and is healthy but she does have an eye condition that will require special surgery. She also needs to be spayed so Bella will be in our care for a few weeks getting these needs addressed. Bella loves all living beings and will be happiest in a home with another doggy friends to be BFFs with. She loves children too so she’d be a good family dog. Stay tuned as we get to know her better and help us with the cost of her care by clicking the PayPal button below and thank you!


To date we've spent $1192.08 on Bella's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $95.00 in donations.

Brooklyn True

Meet Brooklyn True. She in an adorable 6-year-old little girl that weighs 9 pounds. She is being fostered outside of Nashville, TN

Initial bio 7-18-19

Brooklyn’s owner recently passed away and our local shelter contacted United Yorkie Rescue to help find her a forever home. As you can see she is absolutely gorgeous. She does good with other dogs and definitely loves her people. Her previous owners were retired, so she would love a home where she can get all the attention she deserved and lots of cuddle time. Brooklyn is VERY laid back and will snuggle up beside you all day if she could. However, when you come through the door she jumps and dances until you pick her up so she can shower you with kisses. She was previously potty pad trained, but we are doing good with going outside to potty in a fenced in yard. She would probably do better in a home with no small children. Brooklyn got a wonderful vet check that included a much needed dental, all bloodwork results came back perfect, update on all her vaccinations & microchip. If you are interested in adopting Brooklyn please go to our website at Unitedyorkierescue.org or if you have any additional questions you can contact Leslie@Unitedyorkierescue.org


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

Drum Roll please after his dental he will be ready to find his forever family.... He is very sweet loves to be with his human and loves to snuggle next to you in bed....

06/27/19

Chance here wanted to let everyone know how I have been doing. I am feeling better and healing nicely. Everyone has been so kind and your donations and prayers have been appreciated... I was left for dead and UYR and all my fans became my hero's I haven't been sick at all since I got home to my FM house. She is taking great care of me... I will day the cone in a pain but FM mom says a very kind lady sent me the inflated cone she put on me last night... and wow its sooo much better than that plastic one I was wearing I can eat and drink without any trouble now. FM mom says 1 more week and I should be able to take off the cone all together. Maybe then she will let me play too... she is still making me stay calm and not run around playing with the other doggies here. But she does carry me around and give me lots of love and kisses so that makes it ok.... I love all the attention I am getting. Don't tell FM but I just might be spoiled a little bit. Please continue to pray for my recovery. Any donations to UYR to help me or any other dog in need is appreciated I don't know what I would have done without UYR saving me.

06/22/19

Update from Dogtor today... Chance was sick overnight he has been throwing up... they feel this is due to the pressure in his stomach has changed due to moving things back where they belong so it is causing him to be nauseated and vomit. They have been giving him anti-nausea medication. They are hoping this will improve throughout the day. With this in mind the dogtor and foster mom have decided that it would be in his best interest to spend another night in the hospital and we will reevaluate tomorrow. Again we can not thank you enough. Thank you to everyone who has prayed for him and made donations towards his medical bills... your continued support thru prayers and donations are appreciated.

06/21/19

Update just got a call from Dogtor about Chance he made it thru surgery she said he had 2 significant hernia's to be repaired. His Diaphram was torn in a Y shape and his liver, stomach, spleen, and intestines where pushed thru she also noted his spleen was fractured from the accident. All has now been repaired and everything back where it belongs. This was a major surgery for this sweet boy... he will need to stay at least 2 days in the hospital to make sure that everything is functioning properly and that he is out of the woods and on his way to a full recovery. She said he will be very sore from this for awhile he has lots of sutures inside. Dogtor said she doesn't anticipate any issues. We are very grateful for this news. Thank you to everyone who has prayed for him and made donations towards his medical bills... your continued support thru prayers and donations are appreciated.

6/20/19

Chance went for his PreOp appointment today his dogtor says he has another hernia in his small intestines as well has the one that has pushed thru the diaphragm also his liver is pushing thru the diaphragm so he may lose a portion of his liver. Foster mom was tearful as she left him this afternoon but knows he is in good hands and they are going to get this sweet boy all put back together. This is a major surgery and costly he will have to stay for a day or two in the hospital before foster mom can bring him home but we will keep everyone updated. Chance wants to thank everyone for your prayers and donations please keep them coming.

6/19/19

Chance has been a busy boy this week he has been to Dogtor for follow up and additional testing. He is on two strong antibiotics for the infection and they are giving him a mild pain pill but due to injuries he can not be sedated or given a very strong pain medication. Despite his injuries he is still very loving and wants to be with you at all times which is great since his dogtors recommendation is that he remain very calm. Foster mom is keeping him very close to her and monitoring him like a hawk. He will go Thursday to Blue Pearl for is Pre-Op appointment he will stay overnight and his surgery will be done Friday morning. His dogtor and foster mom are feeling positive that everything will turn out fine. Please keep Chance and foster mom in your prayers. Also Chance, Foster mom and UYR want to Thank everyone for their donations. Chance would appreciate any additional donations as he has been told this surgery will be very expensive... but he is so grateful for the everyone’s help in making him all better.

6/15/19: This sweet boy has just arrived in UYR and he has not had a good week at all. We have named him “Chance” in the hopes that with your help, some good luck and lots of love he might actually have one. On Thursday, Chance was hit by a car and according to witnesses at the scene the driver did not even try to swerve or stop to help him. A witness picked Chance up out of the ditch where his little body was thrown and took him to animal control. He received a basic medical evaluation there but they believed he had only soft tissue injuries and lots of bruising and would likely recover on his own. After his stray hold was up, UYR was contacted to help and they took Chance straight to a Veterinarian where a more extensive workup and X-rays were performed. Thank goodness this was done because Chance is worse off than initially believed and he has suffered substantial internal injuries. X-rays show that Chance has a diaphragmatic hernia which means that the impact of being hit by a car tore his diaphragm and created a hole which has caused his intestines to be displaced into his chest cavity. This means his lungs are being crowded and are not able to expand fully. It also means that Chance's intestines are in danger of becoming strangulated and if this happens he could lose part of them. In any event, Chance needs major surgery to repair his injuries as soon as possible so we are putting out a plea to our fans and supporters for help. We are trying to manage Chance medically with supportive care through the weekend so that he can have his corrective surgery early next week under the best of circumstances but if he takes a turn for the worse or shows any signs of breathing difficulty or intestinal blockage he will have to have immediate emergency surgery. At present he is under close observation and that will continue through the weekend. If you are able to help this sweet boy with a donation towards his care then we would be so very grateful.

Tennessee
Duchess

Duchess is a estimated 5-year-old, 10-pound Silky Terrier girl being fostered in Nashville, TN.

Update 06/27/2019

What a difference a week makes! Duchess has really come out of her shell over the past few days, claiming a doggie bed for her own, tussling with her foster brother and trying out ALL the toys. She is even showing more interest in what lies beyond the door, not just venturing onto the patio on her own but also crossing over the threshold when her foster brothers are headed out to potty. Her FM looks for her to be willing to go for a real walk in the next few days!

Duchess has also found her voice. She is the first to recognize that FM is about to come through the door after work and sounds the alert. She now joins the chorus of cheerful barking and comes running to be petted as her tail wags. Her confidence in herself is growing and her trust in FM and her new surroundings is growing, too. Duchess joins her foster brothers as FM's morning alarm signaling it's time for the boys to go outside as well.

She has learned to take treats from FM either from the palm or fingertips. Her whole back end wags in delight when the treats appear. Duchess' future is bright and she is going to be great companion in her forever home.

Update 6/19/19

Regal yet unsure, Duchess survived years in an Ohio Amish puppy mill and was surrendered having had as many litters of pups allowed under Ohio law. The vet has given this beautiful pup a clean bill of health; she has been spayed, and her teeth are shiny and clean.

She warms up very slowly but demonstrates confidence and loyalty once she does. Initially, she may avert her eyes, allowing humans to approach even as she fearful of their intent. Over the passing days, she has come to relish having her chin and head rubbed. The occasional side pet is welcome, too. Duchess will now approach her foster mom for affection and back off to wait for petting.

She knows that being picked up by humans is virtually inevitable, but she has come to understand that she is no longer in danger when she is picked up. She does the cutest pretend walk with her feet when being carried under her Foster Mom’s arm. Duchess is now making direct eye contact with deep dark eyes full of love and gratitude, and her sweet disposition suggests she will make an excellent companion for her forever mom or dad.

Duchess has been slow to interact with her foster brothers, but she has shown no signs of aggression. She eventually engaged in playful behavior with the larger of the two, and she now makes sure that she knows where they are and will follow them from room to room. Should the smaller brother tussle with the larger, Duchess often steps in the middle without a sound as if she sees herself protecting the smaller. Even then she is not aggressive as she nudges her brothers to a different activity. Her kind nurturing soul shows through in so many ways.

Duchess has discovered chewy bones, and she loves them! Her favorite activity seems to be sitting at foster mom’s feet with a chew bone or sleeping. She has not mastered the ramp or steps to get onto the couch or bed, but she will put her paws on the side to let FM know that she would like to be petted. While she isn’t a lap dog yet, she is comfortable on the couch or bed next to FM when she has some assistance to get there although she chooses to sleep on the carpeted floor.

As with most puppy mill survivors, Duchess has not been house-trained. Her potty behavior is consistent and interesting. She made short-order of disposable diapers and quickly figured out how to undo the Velcro of reusable diapers. Smart girl! She prefers to pee pee and poo in the kitchen near the door and virtually in the same spot every time. It’s as if she knows the process of going to the bathroom outside, but she is terribly afraid to go outdoors. She does cower after going to the bathroom. Also – when her foster brothers go out to take care of business, she will pee or poo while they are out with FM and is quite proud of herself when we return, waiting with wagging tail for the treats she knows the boys and she will receive.

She is quite comfortable going out onto the patio, and she has taken some steps in the corridor in our apartment building. Just yesterday (6/17) she took her first voluntary steps when placed on the sidewalk outside. As long as she is aware FM is holding the leash, she stands perfectly still. When the leash is on the ground or loose, she will move about to sniff, never wandering very far. Patience will be required to work with Duchess to master appropriate bathroom habits.

She will do well in a quieter home where she can be a focal point of attention and affection. She is fine with dogs her size or smaller who are not overly active or hyper. Older children may be fine, but I would not recommend young children as she is skittish and needs to feel safe to be able to relax. A confined space to explore outside may well assist in socializing her into her new normal, but above all she needs her human to love her unconditionally, recognizing that her challenges are not by her choice or fault. She has been abused and used, separated from numerous puppies, and discarded when she was no longer a profit-maker. Love is the balm that will heal this precious creature’s emotional wounds, and she is bound to be loyal and loving to the person who shows her the way home.

Duchess came from a puppy mill in OH another shelter reached out to us to help her out. Stay tuned as we get to know her better

Lucy

Lucy is an 10 year old Yorkie girl who weighs 11lbs and is being fostered near Ashland City,TN.

Initial Bio 7-13-19: Lucy was surrendered by her family who absolutely adored her due to circumstances beyond their control. They reached out to United Yorkie Rescue hoping that Lucy can find a home to love and care for her as much as they have for the rest of her life. Lucy is an active senior girl who loves people and loves to play with toys . She enjoys running around in the yard or to go walking on a leash with her person. Lucy is housetrained as long as she is taken out on a regular schedule. She LOVES her CRATE but needs to be covered up while in it because she will guard it . She sleeps in her crate. Lucy does ok with other small dogs but I think she would rather be the center of attention. She takes medication for her thyroid and is on a special food. Royal Canine low fat dry food and can soft food to mix a bit with the dry. She enjoys carrots and lean treats in the afternoon. Lucy rides well in a car but needs to be covered in her crate to feel secure. When going to the vet or to be groomed she takes medication to help with her anxiety. Stay tuned as we get to know more about Lucy and she has a visit with the Dogtor for a checkup this week.

TN Bella

TN BELLA IS A 9 year old, 7- POUND YORKIE GIRL BEING FOSTERED NEAR ASHLAND CITY, TN.

Updated Bio: Bella is a sweetheart who is up to date on all care . She was adopted out in April of this year after being surrendered by her owner before. Turns out that Bella has potty issues. She needs to go to a home without carpet. The family that adopted her through the rescue had carpet in all rooms except the kitchen. Bella doesn’t seem to distinguish carpet from wee wee pads. That is Bella’s only issue is potty training. I think with the right fit and lots of patience she will learn how to go potty more outside ( she loves outside) or on wee wee pads more. A stay at home mom or dad would be ideal for her to help her with potty training issues. Bella is not hyper, she gets along well with other dogs and adores her person. Bella will not be adopted to anyone who does not understand her potty issues. Her next home will be the one that she will live in for the rest of her life.

Initial Bio- 4-11-19: Bella was surrendered by her owner who loved her very much but due to busy schedules could not longer give her the attention she needs. Bella is an absolute sweetheart. She is easy going and loves to be petted. She is also wee pad trained, but also goes potty outside. Bella needs a fenced in yard so she can go out and lay in the sun, she truly enjoys that. Bella rides well in a car and gets along great with other dogs. She is up to date on all her shots, microchipped and has been spayed. She just had a dental. Poor baby has only 7 teeth left but that’s ok she feels so much better and can still eat up yummy food. Her Dogtor says she needs to loose about 2-3 pounds, Bella is on a diet for the time being. She also needs lots of exercise so walks around the neighborhood is a plus for her. Bella would do great as an only dog or with others. She would love a companion who is home most of the time. If your the right one for her please email Foster mom for more information.

TN Milo

TN Milo is a 6-year-old, 17 pound Yorkie boy being fostered near Nashville, TN.

THANK YOU TO TN MILO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Elaine Lint, Lucie Duffy, Becky Lansing, Mary Whitaker, Sandra Wendt, Leslie Corbell, Omar Zapata, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Paul Sherman, Irene and Peter Havas in memory of darling Happy, Jan Freeman, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Sandy Pagnotta

7/7/19

Poor TN Milo his week just continued to get worse on July 4th Milo was taken to the Blue Pearl Emergency he was vomiting blood. He had to be admitted in order to be stablized. They suspected a GI ulcer. He was able to come home late on July 5th with more medications for the ulcer and followup appointments for an ultra sound. He is possibly going to need another surgery to repair a Liver Shunt. For those who may not know what this is, a liver shunt is a condition that occurs if a blood vessel is sidetracked and bypasses the liver. The liver's job is to distribute protein and detoxify the blood. Milo's liver is not doing this properly. This also causes bladder stones called urates which do not disolve. Milo has had 3 bladder stone surgergies so far. With his last surgery done after UYR took Milo into rescue, the surgeon found 40 bladder stones which were removed. This poor baby has been suffering. He also has GI ulcer and the doctors feel that it will be in his best interest medically to repair the liver shunt if at all possible. If the blood vessel is on the outside of his liver and there is only one shunt, he will be a candidate for surgery. However if the ultrasound shows that his shunt is on the inside of his liver or that he has multiple shunts he will not be a canidate for surgery. So we will have to continue to treat with special diet, medications, and remove bladders stones whenever needed. Please pray for Milo that only 1 shunt is found so that he can have this surgery. Milo and UYR would appreciate any donations. Liver Shunt surgery is a very expensive surgery and he has already been hospitalized twice since coming to UYR. We want to give Milo the life he deserves and your donations are greatly appreciated. Even with everything Milo has been going thru he has a very loving and likes to be right with his FM he follows her everywhere now that he is feeling a little better.

7/3/19

TN Milo has had a very busy and painful week. He was admitted to Blue Pearl Sunday for Bladder stones he was kept overnight and had several test on Monday his FM went to get him and brought him to TN.

He came home but overnight started throwing up and could keep anything down so back to the vet we went today. They have him fluids and several shots for pain nausea and antibiotics since he is not keeping anything down. He is such a sweet boy and he is definitely a trooper. He was surrendered because his owners could no longer afford to pay his medical expenses he has a liver shunt which has caused him to have several bladder stones. UYR was willing to help this sweet baby and he is so grateful.... He needs your help too... please pray for him and if you feel led please donate to his care... the medical expenses do rack up quickly.

TN Rudy

Rudy is a 8-pound, 23-weeks old (estimated) Yorkie Mix boy being fostered near Nashville, TN.

Update 6/27/19 Tennessee)

Rudy has been with his foster parents for a week now and is such a sweet little puppy. He is a Velcro dog and follows his mom every step she takes and is always in her lap. He loves snuggling at night with his foster mom so he needs to go to a home that will allow him to sleep in the bed. He is starting to get used to men too thanks to his foster dad. Rudy is definitely a puppy. He loves to play all the time and he has the sweetest nature. House training has been hard for him so he is wearing a belly band now but is starting to get better at going outside. It will take time and patience to get him to go outside all the time.

Tanner Roux

Meet little Tanner Roux. He is an adorable 5 pound, approximate 10 year old boy who is being fostered in Clarksville, TN area

June 24, 2019

This little guy weighs almost 5 pounds, is approximately 10 – 11 years old and is absolutely gorgeous with his blond hair !

We have had him 2 weeks now and he is just the most precious thing ever. He loves to follow you around and is ALWAYS available for kisses. As you can see he is very quiet and very calm. We think he may have some hearing loss, but that does not stop him all – We did a complete bloodwork panel on him and though it does not show levels of kidney disease, the vet did recommend for his age to be on a low fat diet. He no teeth but absolutely loves to eat !! He loves to go for call rides and wants to watch out the window for all the cars to go by. He does wonderful with his potty habits, will go outside to potty, but has an accident or two in the house. He will sleep in his bed right beside you or snuggled up in bed with you as long as he is close. He would probably do better in a home with no young children due to his size. If you are interested in adopting Tanner please click on the button below to complete an application, or if you have any additional questions you can contact Leslie@unitedyorkierescue.org.

Update 7/1/19: United Yorkie Rescue Bunny has an oncology follow up appointment tomorrow! She is maybe 6 to 8yrs old, rescued from the puppy mill we shut down in Texas. She was one of the original Fortunate Four rescued. Bunny has metastatic cancer. We removed her mammary tumors, but sadly they were diagnosed as carcinoma and cancer has spread to her lymph nodes. She is just the most loving princess ever and we are trying to give her some time, which she sooo deserves! Please help us by donating to her care at www.uyr.us or you may also click the button attached. If you aren't able to donate at this time, please share as you never know who may be in a place to do so. Bless you and please keep sweet Bunny in your pray

Update 4/5/19: Bunny was seen by the oncologist and she says she looks amazing. Overall her x-rays look really good as far as she is concerned. She does have a very large heart, she's on Vetmedin for that and at present there is no need to add anything more. Her trachea looks a little more relaxed and does not have such a roller coaster look to it as well. Her bloodwork looks very good. Her lymph node is considerably smaller. Hard to say if this chemo med is the reason why, but she's doing very well. No need for recheck until another 3 months. Despite all that is wrong with her, she's just so incredibly sweet.

BIO UPDATE. 03/01/19. Sweet baby Bunny, when you were a mill baby, wasn't the hell hole you lived in enough! Wasn't it enough that you were bred so damn much that you can't even tell your behind from your vagina, and your tail that lies inside this folded over sheath of skin to make matters worse. No it wasn't enough.

You, my sweet angel, had to have ear infections, bacterial skin infections, fungal looking long painful nails, tooth decay and missing your lower jaw due to decay. Let's add the icing to this cake baby. Your breeder didn't take care of you and all of those mammary tumors either. We did though. United Yorkie Rescue stepped in and we took 2 weeks to try to get weight on your emaciated body and heal some of your issues. We took away those tumors, and that baby maker.

But my sweet angel, sadly your breeder gave you something I can't fix...sadly we received the news today from Bunny's oncologist that she has metastatic cancer. But Bunny do you know how fortunate you truly are? You are in my home now. Your life of pain and misery will be a faded memory. You will have soft beds and blankets every day. I have enough love to take you on this journey, and you have a family outside of our walls that already love you as well.

I ask everyone to please keep Bunny in your prayers for these next few months. Please continue to help us with her medical needs. Please donate to her care at www.uyr.us. Thank you and Bless you!

Update 2/23/19: This morning I sat in the vet's office with Dr. Jessie and just cried. You know you can only be strong to a point, and today was just the tip of that point. Bunny, one of the Fortunate Four mill rescue babies, finally had her appointment with an oncologist because during her first vet visit after rescue, the vet discovered not only did she have a very bad heart murmur, but chest x-rays showed her trachea to have this roller coaster look to it. Did any of this matter... not really... because her exam zeroed in on a swollen lymph node in her groin. She took Bunny to the back, aspirated the node, looked at the slide and saw cells that shouldn't be there but officially, we wait until Monday for the pathologist to give us the report. Bunny's doctor at that point told me what time we maybe looking at, and the tears just started to flow in my eyes and in hers as well. She listened to me telling her how this precious baby deserved so much more time of the good than the hell she lived in, and how much pain we see them go through after the rescue because we have to fix all the horrible things that their abusers neglected to care for. I will guarantee you she will be a princess for whatever time God has planned for her and I will make sure this mill is put to rest for her. In the meantime, Bunny needs your prayers! We also ask you to please help us share her story, and please, please donate so we can medically support Bunny and the Fortunate Four mill rescue's.

Thank you UYR family!!!

UPDATE 02/22/19. Bunny is home!! As you may remember, her presurgical exam once again alerted to a 5 out of 6 heart murmur, so x-rays were once again performed to look at the chest. Sadly, they feel what they are seeing is real and Bunny has been referred to oncology for answers regarding her chest. We have an appointment with the Oncologist on Saturday the 23rd, where we will be doing additional testing so we can get answers as to what is lying under her sternum and in those lymph nodes. I am also heavy feeding Bunny, even more so than before, to try to turn her weight loss around. I know her sur sibling in the mill rescue, Cash, did not have any weight gain as well, although Bunny had a 2lb loss! I am praying that these babies were just so stressed, and their bodies just need time to turn this around.

We also have started Bunny on specialty compounded eye drops for her dry eye, and instead of looking at gooey flat dull eyes there is a sparkly shine that was so absent!! She did get her spay, which also included an excise of an almond shaped mass attached to her uterus, another lipoma like mass on her left side as well, and 9 mammary tumors as well. Biopsies have been sent out with results due in possibly today. Please In the meantime, please continue to support these babies as these specialty Drs come with specialty tests which we need for answers regarding Bunny.

We would love your prayers and once again, to continue to support our Fortunate Four, you have several options to donate:

Update 2/9/19: We now have a current picture of Bunny who is another one of the Fortunate Four that was recently rescued from the puppy mill last week. Bunny is currently receiving medicated baths due to flea and tick infestation. She has major hair loss all over her body however, her vets feel this is due to the infestation her body endured. Bunny is EXTREMELY emaciated and cannot undergo surgery for her needs so let me tell you where we are in her treatment. Bunny had severe bilateral ear infections in which we treated her this past week with an antibiotic. She also had a vicious eye infection in both eyes. She has received antibiotics for that as well, and now we are treating her eyes with a lubricating gel to protect her vision and her tear production. Bunny is horribly disfigured in her genital area from being nothing more than a breeding machine. It is very hard to differentiate her anatomy and even her tail, as it is engulfed in a sheath of thickening skin. She has a ravenous appetite and we are hoping that she will have some weight gain that will add to her stability during her upcoming surgery. Bunny also has a 5 out of 6 heart murmur. As stated before, her lymph nodes that lie under her sternum are so enlarged with all of this infection that we have started her on vetmedin to protect her heart as her body heals. Along with all of this, Bunny has lost some of her lower jaw due to horrific detal decay and we will have to see after her dental if there are any teeth we can save. She will need a spay. We also know, she has many mammary tumors as well so we are expecting to have biopsies and possible entire chain removal depending of the status of these tumors. Please continue to support us with these horrifically abused angels.

Update 2/5/19: This is precious Bunny, the second of the Fortunate Four puppy mill dogs just taken in. Bunny has very unusual anatomy near her rectum and vagina which is a result of prolonged over-breeding. She has multiple mammary tumors on both sides and evidence of recent and frequent nursing. Bunny has almost no lower jaw bone and no lower teeth at all. Her uppers are barely hanging on from years of dental neglect. She has severe bacterial skin infection and bilateral ear infections and is extremely thin bordering on emaciation. Bunny was going to have surgery tomorrow for her mammary tumors but she has been diagnosed with a pretty bad heart murmur; grade 5 of 6. X-rays revealed that the lymph nodes under her sternum are so enlarged from years of chronic infection that they are pressing on her sternum and trachea which can compromise her airway so anesthesia is not advised until her infection is under control. She has been started on antibiotics and medication to treat heart failure and her surgery is postponed until she is more stable.

INITIAL BIO. 7/14/2019: Sweet little 7yr old, 6 lb Enana is flying here tomorrow from California. Enana has spent the majority of the past two months under veterinary care due to a multitude of issues.

This sweet angel will be seeing a specialist for testing Thursday, and then we visit with the surgeon the following Tuesday. If her results indicate an operable shunt(s), she will have immediate surgery on that date. We ask that you please keep Enana in your prayers as we go through this process. The imaging and upcoming surgery will be incredibly expensive for our rescue. We also ask you to also please donate to her care. This angel is just so adorably sweet and full of love to give, let's give her that life! Due to the possibility of surgery, Enana is not ready for adoption for at this time.

6-9-19 Update - Guess what day it is?? No, not hump day; it diagnosis day! I took a long trip with foster dad to Texas A&M this week to hopefully find out what is going on with my frequent stumbles.I thought I was at a spa, that facility was so nice. Even though it was a super long day and I didn't feel very good for a couple days after, I finally left with a diagnosis to my troubles. I couldn't understand a lot of what the nice doctors were saying, but foster dad explained it to me on the two hour drive home. Apparently I have three issue that could cause my stumbles individually, or all three together could be the cause. I have an excessive build up of cerebral fluid in my spinal column. The good news is this is treated with medicine that I take each morning. I will be on this for the next several weeks to see if my symptoms improve. If they don't, then we will have to explore the other two issues. I also have bulging disk in my neck. Three actually, but only one seems to compressing my spinal cord. This could have happened when I was dropped by a young person shortly before my surrender. This fix would require a fairly invasive surgery, but with great success rates. If that doesn't get me back to normal, the next issue is a congenital disorder where bone from my spine is growing in a way that is putting pressure on the lower part of my brain. Common in my breed and also treatable. The surgery is still a little more invasive than the disk surgery, but also with a great success rate. I am very hopeful that the medicine works, because I don't think I like the word surgery, even if I'm not sure what it means. Once I have overcome these stumbles by getting better, I will be looking for the perfect parents. Until then please help by making a donation to my care at unitedyorkierescue.org under my profile. The treatments are very expensive and I need all the help I can get. Signing off for now - Jersey

4/19/19 - Howdy folks! I am so excited I can barely contain myself. I had another round of testing at the dogtor last week and the results are in. All my liver functions are in NORMAL ranges. Let me repeat that...NORMAL. I have been trying to convince everyone that I was the perfect little baby, and no there is no disputing it now! I am so ready to meet my forever family. I have become quite attached to foster mom and dad, but I know there is a super family out there that has never ending love for me. And I am anxious to get my life started with them. If that special someone is you (you know who you are), please get an application in so foster mom and dad can begin the adoption process.

UPDATE BIO. 3/24/19 Happy Spring everyone! I have some good news to update everyone. I had another visit with the dogtor and had an ultrasound and biopsy. The results came back fairly positive. I do not have any cancerous cells, but the ultrasound did reveal some abnormalities in my liver and gall bladder. My liver is slightly swollen and gall bladder is retaining some sludge. Dogtor is not positive if the liver is causing the gall bladder problems or vice versa. I am now on medication for both and will go back to the vet in a month for another bile acid test to see if we have concurred my issues.I am definitely on the mend and really settling in with foster mom and dad.

I had my first grooming on Thursday, and boy am I cute! If I don't say so myself. I was on my best behavior as my stylist made me look so pretty. I am looking forward to meeting a new family that wants to love and take care of me for the rest of my days. I have so much love to give!

Anxiously awaiting your application to adopt me!

Jersey UPDATE BIO. 2/23/19. Hey everyone, Jersey here. I wanted to give you an update on my progress with foster mom and dad and my recent visits to the dogtor. I have decided that foster mom and dad are pretty fun. Foster dad brings me to work with him almost every day, so I am getting more comfortable in the car and love getting to spend the day with a lot of loving folks. I have been sharing my new home with a foster brother, Pepe the chihuahua, who seems to not mind my presence at all. We don't play, as I am still a little under the weather. I have definitely begun to show my personality more and have a little zip in my step now.

I sleep so well through the night and have shown foster mom and dad that I am 100% potty trained. I have been to the vet a few times to try to figure out what is causing my awkward gait, and am getting closer to a diagnosis and treatment plan. The focus has been on my liver function, because some tests have pointed in that direction. It was confirmed this week that there is definitely something going on and I am scheduled for another test March 11th. I am hopeful that this test will pinpoint my illness and I can begin the road to recovery. I am a super loving pup that just wants to share my life with a super loving family. More updates to come after my next round of testing.

Initial Bio 2/17/19: Howdy folks! My name is Jersey, but don’t let it fool you. I am not a northern girl, as I am proud to be a Texan. I am almost 9 years old and just under 8 pounds of lovable, sweet, Yorkie. I was recently surrendered to UYR by a savior that has tried to help me several times over my life. She wanted to provide a great home for me, but other puppies in the house occupied the only spaces her home would allow. So she did the next best thing and put me with new foster mom and dad. I have been here a week and am really settling in. I am a perfect southern young lady that is completely housetrained, a great snuggle buddy, loves other dogs, and sleeps through the night. I don’t bark at much and really love my two meals a day. I even like to observe things being cooked in the kitchen by foster mom and dad. I am not very fond of riding in the car or baths, but I will tolerate them.

I have been to the dogtor a few times last week to try to narrow down an issue I am having with my gait. I am fairly slow to get around, can appear a little dizzy at times, and really can’t navigate any steps to and from the house. I also suffer from dry eye syndrome, but have medication that I have been taking twice a day that keeps that in check. Dogtor has scheduled another test for me this week to get a better understanding of what is going on. Updates will follow.

I am looking for a forever home with a mom and dad that have a lot of time for me. I love to be on the couch with them, but need help getting up and down. Ideally my new parents will not have small children due to my size and lack of quick reflexes. I have a Texas size amount of love to give and want so badly to share that with my new parents.

Kacie

Meet Kacie, a sweet 15 year old, 8 pound Yorkie girl being fostered in Gainesville, TX.

THANK YOU TO KACIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Marty Mullendore, Paul Sherman

6/23/19: Meet KACIE and look at this precious face! Kacie just never ceases to amaze me. At 15yrs old, yes I said 15, this princess is blind but she is very much in touch with everything around her. She is the first one to hit the kitchen when its dinner time and she absolutely loves to go outside and be in the yard. This amazing little girl had sight, but slowly lost the tissue in her left eye due to KCS (dry eye) and had an enucleation of that eye. She has progressively lost the sight in her right eye and is on eye meds to manage the KCS. Kacie gets along beautifully with all the animals and her humans. She is loving the hugs she gets and now gives the sweetest kisses too. She is truly housetrained as she does ask to go out, however, we do have occasional accidents which I cannot blame on this angel. Other than her sight loss, she is as healthy as can be and just adorable! If you feel you have the love and home to offer this sweet angel, please fill out an application on our website at www.uyr.us or email me at yorkiefostertx@gmail.com.

INITIAL BIO. 6-12-19. Precious 15yr old, 8lb Kacie was just so loved by her owners! We have an adopter chosen for this sweet angel, already.

Kacie is totally blind and we wanted to bring her in and place her directly into a home she could relearn. She will have a dental and be home sweet home. Please adopt and donate at www.uyr.us!!!

Little Bit
Texas
Little Bit TX

Meet precious Lil Bit.. He is handsome 12- yr-old boy who weighs 5 lbs. He is being fostered in TX.

THANK YOU TO LITTLE BIT'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Laura Bentley, Holly Keller, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Teresa Beament

4/5/19: Lil Bit was rechecked and his blood values are still off; in addition he has an infection brewing somewhere. He is starting antibiotics and we're are adding iron to his food. Lil Bit has a great appetite and has been on puppy food but despite that he lost a few ounces. He has been having some dry heaving spells and a lil spit up the past two days. We are adding cerenia for this. The vet feels it may be his teeth as they are just awful, but he does have the testicle tumors as well. We will wait another week or two before we try again for this surgery. In the meantime, we are adding 2 more feedings to see if this helps with his weight loss.

Initial Bio. 03/27/19. Sweetness is all I can say about this tiny nugget! Lil Bit is one of three owner surrenders. He is a 12 year, 5lb adorable little Yorkie. He was quickly surrendered at a nearby shelter after his female owner passed. But that's ok, after seeing the neglect of the 3 surrendered, United Yorkie Rescue was definitely needed for their care.

Lil Bit has testicle tumors which he will have removed while completing his neuter. He is also in dire need of a dental. He is currently getting some TLC and good groceries to prepare him for his upcoming surgery. His blood work is actually very good. Lil Bit also has arthritis that has settled in his spine but it doesn't stop this baby from trying to keep up...especially if he knows there is something brewing in the kitchen!!

After we complete his vetting this baby will need a furever home. His purfect home would be one that is maybe a retired couple or someone who does not have chilldren, due to his age and size. He is just adorable and loves nothing more than to cuddle up or cuddle into a fluffy bed and let's not forget to eat LOL. If you feel you have the purfect home for Lil Bit please fill out an application or email foster mom at yorkiefostertx@gmail.com.


To date we've spent $2113.87 on Little Bit TX's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $95.00 in donations.

Mickey
Texas
Mickey

Mickey is a healthy, sweet 3 year old, 14 pound Yorkie mix being fostered in Fort Worth, Tx.

Initial Bio 7/20/19: This is Mickey. Isn’t he beautiful and he is just a cuddle love bug who wants to play and chase toys and give you sloppy kisses. Mickey had a rough beginning. He was found tied up next to a dumpster. A local animal shelter picked him up and after his hold time expired, one of UYR’s loving volunteers asked that we take this baby into rescue – how could we say no to this face!!??? We do not know his exact age but would estimate about 3 years old. The first day foster mom had him, he began to cough uncontrollably in the wee hours of the morning. Foster mom took him to the vet the next day and he was diagnosed with Bordetella or kennel cough. He is on antibiotics and medicine for his cough and made a turn for the better overnight. He is heartworm negative and will be neutered and chipped in the next few days. His foster mom does not understand why he was tied up next to a dumpster because he is absolutely precious, gentle, and fun. He loves to lay his head on foster mom’s shoulder and at the same time, antagonize other members of the pack in his young, playful manner. Foster mom and the pack are working with Mickey on his indoor manners and etiquette (i.e. eating out of everyone’s food bowls at meal time), including potty training. Foster mom is also working to put a few pounds on him. This young boy would be good in a home with older children or just a couple wanting to give him a lot of love. Foster mom will not let him go into a home where the family wants to crate him during the day. This guy was in a kennel for 4 days and who knows what before that. He needs to be free to play and love his family. If you think you have enough love for this precious boy, please fill out an application at www.unitedyorkierescue.org.


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

Pepper

Pepper is the sweetest yorkie girl who is 12 years old and 7 pounds. She is being fostered in Richardson, TX.

THANK YOU TO PEPPER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Lynne Turner, Irene and Peter Havas in memory of darling Happy, Lynne Turner, Mike Thomas, Kimberly Boss, Sandy Pagnotta, Brandy Caldwell Swanson, Nicole Acosta

07/12/19 INITIAL BIO. Hey everyone! My name is Pepper. I am a 12 year old female Yorkie with grey and silver Fur. I weigh about 8.8 lbs and just recently found out I am diabetic. I came to UYR after being taken to the shelter to be put down by my mom of 12 years. This was heartbreaking, thankfully someone at the shelter contacted UYR and said I had so much life still in me. They saved me!

Now I am in my new foster home with my foster family, getting use to my new life and changes with my diet and blood sugar. I wasn’t feeling good and my foster mom took me to get checked. That is where it all started. I was in the emergency vet for 4 days. Thankfully I am a brand new puppy- feeling great and playing with my new foster siblings.

I get along great with older dogs and kids. My foster mom says I am the sweetest thing around. I have to get insulin shots every 12 hours which don’t really bother me at all and eye drops for an ulcer that’s healing. The part that is a bummer is I can’t have a treat! Man....that’s a big bummer. I would love to find my forever home with a family that will love me and give me snuggles for the rest of my life.

7/4/19 Pepper is our latest rescue in Texas...watch for her bio soon. She is very ill and is requiring emergency care.

Virginia
VA RUDY

VA Rudy is a 9-year-old, 13 pound Yorkie boy being fostered near Salem, VA.

Rudy (Virginia)

Rudy is a young 13 pound yorkie mix that found himself at a kill shelter through no fault of his own. He and his female companion were found as strays and were never claimed. The United Yorkie Rescue didn’t hesitate to spring him and begin his path to a good home.

Rudy says he feels and smells so much better since he had his spa day. But he does have some itchy skin that the dogter will need to check. He seems to be housetrained and crate trained. So far no accidents in the house. He loves other dogs and loves to be with his human. He’s a good eater and takes treats very gently. He likes to play with toys and run around doing zombies. So a young active family would be perfect for him. He would also need a fenced in yard to keep him secure. Rudy’s foster family is still getting to know him.

More updates will follow once he has visited the dogter for a wellness check on July 12.

Please donate to his care By clicking PayPal button below.

Any questions can be sent to his foster mom at yorkiemomva@yahoo.com

Lily is a sweet 3 pound, 10 year old Yorkie girl being fostered in West Virginia. Please Help Save Lily's Life

THANK YOU TO LILY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Mary Whitaker, Sandy Pagnotta, Sylvia Stapleton, Erik Ebert, Sasha Aaronson

Initial Bio 2/22/19: Little Lily needs our help now! This tiny little girl is very sick. She has had chronic diarrhea since October, is losing weight, and is starting to lose her hair. She weighs a slight 3 1/2 pounds. Her vets recommended euthanasia but her owner didn't give up. Lily's mom went to work to find a rescue experienced in PLE, Protein Losing Enteropathy, often fatal in Yorkies. Her owner drove Lily halfway across the US to her new home. Putting all personal feelings aside, Lily's owner did the final act of love and asked us to save her precious little girl. Lily just had her first vet appointment. Her vet did confirm PLE. She had tests performed and is on several medications. Her follow-up visit is in two weeks. This visit will determine if Lily is responding to her new regimen. She may never be healed, but we are hoping to manage her disease. How a four pound Yorkie has survived this deterioration to her intestinal tract is a testament to her survival skills. Please donate to save this tiny sweet girl's life. This will be a long process to save her. She is not available for adoption at this time so her vet bills will need donations. We will update her prognosis soon.


To date we've spent $998.85 on Lily WV's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $200.00 in donations.

Update 4/1/19: Sweet tiny 14 year old Merry really needs our help. She had three surgeries today and her bill is over $1100. Little four pound Merry was found in bitter cold December, collapsed on the streets of Brooklyn, starved, unable to walk. Merry came to us still unable to walk. Her strength was slowly built until she could withstand three serious surgeries. She had a mammary tumor, a spay was needed to prevent more tumors, and her last two teeth were causing pain. Finally in April, she was able to get the care she needed after rebuilding her strength. Merry was quite a risk for surgery but there was no choice. The mammary tumor was growing. Merry sailed right through the surgeries and came home looking for her dinner. She has two pain meds and she is going to be watched closely. Please consider donating to help with this bill. Without our donors, Merry could not have been given the care she so desperately needed.

INITIAL BIO. 12/11/18. Welcome Merry, our Christmas Yorkie, to United Yorkie Rescue. Merry has quite a story that may turn out to be a Christmas miracle. United Yorkie Rescue takes in many Yorkies every year, and we get them ready for adoption. But there is another part of the rescue that touches us all. It's the little ones we get that are desperately clinging to life.

Merry, 14 years old, blind, and only four pounds, was brought into the Brooklyn New York shelter, starving, emaciated, and unable to walk. The vet records noted her condition was guarded to poor. The shelter reached out to us asking to help this little soul. Honestly, we thought she was coming here to pass in a warm safe place. Merry made the seven hour journey and she never stood. She got home, got a bath, a bed, and a warm dinner. Foster mom left her in her bed in a quiet room to feed the other fosters. Upon returning, there was feeble little Merry, about three feet from her bed, making little tiny prancing steps!

Merry got another meal before before retiring for the night. She goes to the vet tomorrow and our goal is to keep her comfortable. We don't know how this tiny soul ended up abandoned on the streets of New York in the freezing winter. What we do know is that we are dedicated to making her retirement the best part of her life. Please consider helping little Merry, our Christmas rescue. We may not be able to adopt out this little girl so she will rely only on donations. On her freedom ride home, Frank Sinatra was singing "Have yourself a Merry little Christmas, may your heart be light. From now on your troubles will be out of sight." Merry became her name. She is safe for the rest of her life.


To date we've spent $1609.57 on Merry's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1175.00 in donations.

Meet Loki, an 11 year old 5 pound male being fostered in Madison, WI.

THANK YOU TO LOKI'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Mark Maddox, Kate Young, Angela Horrighs, Becky Lansing, Maureen Jackson, Katalin Nagy-Takio, Kate Young, Carol Nelson, Cindy Foster, Jessica Lundquist, Beth Tessman

THANK YOU TO LOKI'S FACEBOOK DONORS!

Bio update 7/19/2019: Loki went to the vet yesterday for a weight and condition check. When he came to UYR, he scored 3/9 - which kept him from being put up for adoption. His condition has not improved enough for him to be considered for adoption right now. We will go back in 2 weeks for another recheck. Hopefully he will continue to eat and gain weight!

Update 7/5/19: Loki has really improved! What a difference time makes! Loki is gaining weight. He is still a very picky eater, but we are finding things he will eat. He loves yogurt, sweet potatoes, cottage cheese and eggs along with food that I’ve been making for him. Loki’s night terrors have stopped. He no longer wakes up shaking and looking around remembering things that happened to him. Loki is quite a snuggler now! He wants to be with his person as much as possible. Even with everything that has happened to him, he remains a very sweet dog. Loki will be going back to the vet next week to have a check up to see how much weight he has put on and see whether or not he will be cleared to be adopted out. Thank you for caring about Loki and all the contributions and well wishes that have been sent for him.

UPDATE BIO. 06/23/19. Loki is now home and eating and drinking on his own regularly. He really needed the extra time at the vet getting fluids and some ‘round the clock’ care. Right now we really believe that Loki has turned a corner! Because of his condition, Loki will not be adopted out until he is medically ready. He needs to gain almost 1 pound, in addition to having the area on his shoulder where the ruptured cyst to improve.

Loki is struggling with what I call “night terrors”. He will jerk awake from a good sleep and “scream” as he looks around where he is. I think he must have had some pretty scary nights on his own and still doesn’t always remember he is safe now. Loki continues to be very sweet, even with everything he has been through. He wants nothing more than to be with his person all the time. Thank you for the contributions toward his care. This wonderful little senior deserves to be spoiled full time

Initial Bio 6-19-19: Day 1: UYR got an urgent call from the local Humane Society about a small yorkie male who was in desperate need of rescue. He went from the shelter directly to the vet where he was assessed. We learned that he is severely underweight (he was a condition grade 3/9), has skin and hair problems, an infection in his ear, cataracts, moderate matting of his coat, grossly overgrown nails, and a severely infected mouth and is deaf. In addition to these issues, Loki came in with a 1.5 x 1.5 inch open infected area on his left shoulder. It was also discovered that he had a severe bruise on his left front leg.

Loki was found running down a country road and was picked up by local law enforcement who delivered him to the Humane Society. It was suspected that he would not have lived much longer without help. The area he was in is known for frequent sightings of coyote. We are so thankful that he was able to look for help before something bad happened.

When we got back from the vet, Loki was given a bath and had the matts cut out. The water was almost black! We spent some time in the back yard where he followed me everywhere! He is such a sweet loving little guy. During the night, he kept waking up crying every hour or so. I reassured him each time that I was still there.

Day 2: Today was a big day for Loki. He was first for surgery. They monitored his heart rate and rhythm and oxygen level to ensure he was tolerating being under anesthesia. They took x-rays and discovered that his mouth was worse than they originally thought. Loki had 18 teeth pulled due to the severe infection that was there. He was left with only a few teeth. They gave him a lot of pain meds to help him with the pain. They were also able to remove the ruptured cyst and stitch it closed. He was pretty outof it when I picked him up late in the day.

Day 3: Loki did not move much during the night. He has not had anything to eat or drink since his first day here. I called the vet because I had concerns about dehydration and his struggle with waking up. It was decided that Loki needed to go back to the vet to be given fluids and a tube to get some nourishment into him. They are watching him to ensure he begins to turn the corner. Loki will be picked up later today. The medical bills for Loki are already significant. If you are able to help this little survivor, that would be much appreciated. He is such a sweet little boy who has been through so much already. Thank you!

Sydney
Wisconsin
Sydney

Meet Sydney, an 11 year old 6 pound female Yorkie being fostered in Madison, WI.

7/19/19 Bio Update: Sydney has had a little set back. The main pad on her right front foot has split. We are headed to the vet today to make sure we are doing everything possible to help her heal and keep the infection away. Even in spite of that, she continues to be a snuggly little girl. She still does not like vacuum cleaners but does settle down after about 20 seconds on her own. Sydney LOVES food. She would not be a good candidate for free feeding as she would eat everything very quickly!

07/06/19. BIO UPDATE. Sydney has been absolutely wonderful! She is such a sweetheart! The perfect home for Sydney will be with someone who is retired or home during the day. Sydney loves to snuggle and wants to be close to her person all the time. She sleeps quietly through the night next to her person and will wait for you to get up before she moves!

She does not bark much and loves to eat. The only thing we have found that she does not like is the vacuum cleaner. She will bark a little then stand quietly – we are working on that! Sydney knows her name and comes when called. If you are interested in adopting Sydney, please fill out an application. Sydney is waiting for her perfect home!

6/18/19: Day 1: Hi everyone! Sydney here. It has been a big day for me. I was surrendered by my family to United Yorkie Rescue. They made the heartbreaking decision to ask for help finding me a new family who would love me as much as they did. It was very hard for them to let me go - I was well taken care of there.

I went to the vet today too. They gave me lots of shots and also gave me a microchip so if I get lost, someone can help me get home. The dogtor told my foster mom that there wasn't any reason I couldn't be adopted out right away!

Foster mom here: Sydney is a very sweet little girl. We are still getting to know her, but we know that she knows her name, is very loving - she would love to be on your lap or nearby all the time, and she has no problems eating. Although the previous owner mentioned some accidents in the house, she has not had any here yet. Sydney is also very quiet; we have yet to hear her bark! Sydney is an awesome little dog who is looking for a nice quiet home with a fenced in yard to call her own. If you are interested, please fill out an application!

Adoption Pending

To date we've spent $159.57 on Sydney's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $200.00 in donations.
