Maxwell

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

THANK YOU TO MAXWELL'S RESCUE ANGELS!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I am a very active and sweet little boy.

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

Boo Boo
Florida
BooBoo

BooBoo is a 4 month old, 2 pound adorable puppy who is being fostered in Ft. Myers, FL.

BooBoo can't go to his forever home for another month.

Initial Bio 6-9-16 BooBoo is a 4 month old, 2 pound little Yorkie boy. He just came to us today. He is being fostered in Ft. Myers, Fl

BooBoo's mom had a serious accident that will require extensive treatment. She is now unable to take care of a puppy. She knew that United Yorkie Rescue would take care of her little pup and find him the perfect forever family.

BooBoo will see the vet tomorrow for additional puppy shots and a well puppy check. He will need to be neutered before he can be adopted, therefore it may be a month or two before BooBoo is ready for his forever home. We do know that he is a puppy with all the puppy needs for training and activity.

Stay tuned. More will be coming on little BooBoo very soon.

Adoption Pending

Diesel
Florida
Diesel

Diesel is an 8 year old, 12 pound Yorkie Boy residing in Clearwater, FL

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

THANK YOU TO DIESEL'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Lisa Prosen, Jean Moffitt

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

Diesel belonged to a woman who had him his entire life before she passed away. He was very well cared for and loved during his lifetime with her. The remaining family was unable to keep him and asked us for help rehoming him. He is very sweet and loves to play and snuggle. He is mostly housetrained, but has occasional accidents if he’s not taken out right after eating. He is very social and gets along with other dogs and loves to be around people as much as possible.

Diesel has a condition called Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency or EPI. You can read about this condition here http://www.whole-dog-journal.com/issues/12_3/features/Exocrine-Pancreatic-Insuffinciency-in-Dogs_16109-1.html

Diesel's condition means that his pancreas does not make the enzymes necessary for food digestion. This is easily managed by a special diet and the addition of special enzyme power to his food twice a day. As long as he gets his enzymes added to his food there are no problems. However, he MUST get this in order for his body to digest his food. Without the enzymes no matter what or how much Diesel eats it will be as if he was consuming nothing at all and he will rapidly lose weight and literally starve.

Diesel is current on all his vaccinations and has recently been diagnosed with a grade 2-3 luxating patella in his right hind knee. His foster parents are training him not to jump when he gets excited to go out.. A little glucosamine one a day would help too, but this is very common in small dogs, especially Yorkies. Diesel does not appear to be in any pain and has not slowed down at all from this

Diesel is a very well mannered dog who needs a special adopter who will be committed to his care and will be very diligent about adding his enzyme power to his prescription food. His enzymes cost about $35 dollars for a month's supply (approximately $70 per bag which lasts 60-70 days). His prescription food is about $35 for a month's supply, but it is no more expensive than most high quality no grain dog food. If you are interested in adopting Diesel be sure you are able to commit to making sure he gets the enzyme power with each meal, and please understand that there will be that additional cost each month for his enzyme powder.

Initial Bio 4/9/2016

Meet Diesel! He is an adorable 8 year old, 12 pound Yorkie boy being fostered in Clearwater Florida.

Poor Diesel recently lost his forever human Mamma who passed away too soon. His remaining family could not take him and reached out to UYR to help find Diesel a perfect new forever home.

Diesel is a super sweet boy who loves to play and snuggle. He is housetrained and gets along with other pets. Diesel does have some special needs however. He has a condition called Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency or EPI. You can read about this condition here EPI

Doogie
Florida
Doogie

Doogie is an 8 year old, 10 pound Yorkie Mix residing in Largo, FL

Doogie is going to be an awesome family addition! Could he be for you?

THANK YOU TO DOOGIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Wendy D'Uva, Nestor Sanchez

Updated bio 7/5/16 Doogie is an awesome little ball of love. Please check out his new glamour shots! Doogie is socializing much better. He gets along fine with dogs his size or smaller, but still gets a little nervous around bigger dogs and when people approach him too fast. He needs an introduction and then he’s fine. He loves to be close to his people and go for walks and rides in his foster mom’s doggy stroller with his foster brother.

It’s all good new for Doogie. He is house trained, leash trained, and rides nicely in the car. He is all up to date on his vaccinations. Doogie had his dental and he’s ready and waiting for his forever home.

Doogie would love to have his forever home with someone who can and will to spend lots of time with him. If you are the perfect person for Doogie be ready for lots and lots of love and kisses. He loves to sit on his foster mom’s lap and can’t get enough cuddle time. If you have room in your life and in your heart for this sweet, loving fellow, please fill out an adoption application for him. You will not be sorry. Whatever love you give him will be returned over and over again.

Update Bio 5/26/16: Hi folks I am Doogie and I am looking for love, love, love! I am also doing great in my Foster home. My FM says I am very much a companion dog and want to be right by her side at all times. When she sits on the couch I need to be right up against her or I try and sneak on her lap. The closer the better for me!

Foster Mom: Doogie is a joy, is potty trained and he would love so much a one on one home. Also, the cyst that was removed is good news..benign! I hope to find that perfect home for him as he so deserves it!

Updated bio 4/20/16 Doggie is a very friendly, happy little guy. He loves people and gets along with other small dogs, though he gets skittish around bigger dogs and will bark them. He also does not care for young children, but would be okay with children over the age of 12 as long as they are calm and gentle around him.

Almost all Doogie’s vetting is done. Doogie has undergone his dental cleaning and has beautiful pearly whites now. He also had a small cyst removed on the right side.

Doogie is looking for that special someone who would like to just hold him and cuddle with him all the time. He loves to be held like a baby and will put his head on your shoulder. He is very lovable and wants to be either on your lap or held every chance he gets. He snuggles up to your back at night. He would love to have a forever home with someone who wants a best friend to be with most of the time. He loves to go for long walks and would be a great walking companion. His foster mom has a doggie stroller so if he needs a break he can go for a ride.

Doogie is housebroken and waits to be taken outside for a small walk in the morning. He would do best in a home with someone to take him out often so his house training continues to be successful.

On April 28th Doogie will be ready for that special home with someone to love him forever! If you are looking for a lap dog that gives lots of kisses, Doogie is the one for you! If you want a best buddy to love and cuddle with, one who will be devoted to you for all his life, make Doogie yours forever.

4-3-16 Meet Doogie. He is our newest foster boy He is a very adorable 8 year old, 10 pound yorkie mix. He is being fostered in Largo, FL.

Doogie just came to his foster home yesterday. His owner could no longer care for him and sadly had to give him up. According to his former owner he is good with other dogs, good with kids, and even good with cats. Doogie is house trained too. Could it get any better?

Doogie has already settled in after only a day. He likes to stay by his foster mom’s side and loves her attention. She has taken him on a few walks and he really enjoys the exercise. He is an energetic guy.

Doogie needs to have a dental and get his vaccinations updated. After that he will be ready for his forever home. Doogie would be a great family dog with kids over the age of 9. He loves to run around so a home with a fenced yard would be nice too. If you think Doogie is the doggie for you, please fill out an adoption application for him. You won’t be sorry.


To date we've spent $760.81 on Doogie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $162.50 in donations.

Ginny
Florida
Ginny

Ginny is a very nice, sweet 5 year old Yorkie mix. Maybe a Shih Tzu/Yorkie—a Shorkie! She weighs 13.4 pounds. Ginny is being fostered in St. Augustine, FL.

THANK YOU TO GINNY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

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

Updated bio 7/22/15

Hi, my name is Ginny. Here is a little about my story. I was all alone on the streets and a nice family found me and took me in. They tried very hard to find my family but no one came for me. Then they called United Yorkie Rescue and here I am. I am not a 100 percent Yorkie, maybe a little, but mostly I think I am an adorable Shih Tzu. My foster mom said Ginny is a good name for me, but she says I look just like Yoda, whoever that is, and then she laughs every time she says that. Right now my new foster family is learning about me each day.

So far I have been to see the nice vet, Dr. Norma. She said I am in mostly good health. They weighed me and I am 13.4 pounds and they think I am 5 years old. Also I found out that I don’t have yucky heartworms or any other kind of worms. Thank goodness. My foster mom was very happy to hear that!!! I like the other doggies in the house here and even the cat is okay with me. Now my very nice foster mommy wants to tell you a little more about me.

Ginny is a very sweet, good girl. She is spayed and up to date on her shots. She does have some skin issues that we will be addressing in the near future. The vet did a skin scraping and the results will be back in about another week. She doesn’t have much hair on her back, but there is some peach fuzz. We are hoping with proper care and maybe medication her hair will come back.

So far we have learned that Ginny is a very good eater. She is good in the car and good on her walks. She knows some manners. She likes her tummy rubbed, and loves to sit with her foster daddy. Ginny is missing her bottom two front teeth. Otherwise her teeth are in good condition.

Ginny did not know about treats or how to play, but she is learning. It will take her some time to know it is okay to play and to get treats. She is a good, calm, sweet little girl. Ginny gets along with the other foster dogs and she even likes the cat.

More will be coming about Ginny as we continue to get to know her better and know more about her skin condition.

Initial Bio 7/16/16 Ginny just became a United Yorkie Rescue pup and has just arrived at her foster home. We don't really know too much about her, though her foster parents will be learning more and more about Ginny as she settles into her new foster home. Right now her foster parents do know a few things about pretty Ginny. Ginny seems to be a calm, sweet girl. She also appears to be house trained, but we can't be totally sure yet. She is good in a car and walks nicely on a leash. She met the cat of the house and seemed to know what a cat is and she was okay with that. She also is getting along just fine with the other dogs in her foster home. Ginny has a skin condition and will be seeing the vet about it very soon. She will also be getting her vaccinations updated, have a heartworm and fecal test, and will be getting microchipped.

We will know more about Ginny after her vet appointment and when her foster parents get to know her better. So watch for updates on this sweet, young girl coming soon.


To date we've spent $562.39 on Ginny's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $20.00 in donations.

Kaci

Kaci after surgery
Florida
Kaci

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

Kaci needs your help to get her eye surgery so she can see again.

THANK YOU TO KACI'S RESCUE ANGELS!

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

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

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

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

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

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


To date we've spent $754.89 on Kaci's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $985.00 in donations.

Mack

Mack is a 11 year young, 10 pound Yorkie Mix residing in Leesburg, FL

Mighty Mack is in need of a family that is home most of the time to give him the loving that he has been missing!

Initial Bio 6-13-16 Meet Mack. Mack is a precious 11-year-old Yorkie Mix fellow. He weighs 10 pounds. Mighty Mack and is being fostered in Leesburg, FL.

Mack arrived at his foster home just today and has already visited with his vet. He will need a little care before he is ready for his forever home. He currently has a urinary tract infection, which will need to be cleared up before he can be adopted. He is on medication for that now. Mack will also get a nice bath and a grooming very soon. He is a little shy right now and not quite sure of things, but he is already following his foster mom all over and cuddling up next to her on the couch.

And now a few words from Mack--Hi, this is Mack. I only just arrived in my foster home, and I have already settled in. I love my foster mommy and my foster fur brother. I have found the toy box and love all the toys. I am so happy that all you have to do is call my name and I wag my tail. I snuggle next to my foster mommy in bed so I have a great night's sleep.

Precious
Florida
Precious

Precious is a precious, little 4.15-pound Yorkie girl. She is a 10-year-old pup who looks just like a puppy. We are hoping Precious’s kidney results come back normal. Precious is being cared for and fostered in Leesburg, FL.

THANK YOU TO PRECIOUS' RESCUE ANGELS!

Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Teresa Beament, Christine Dwyer

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

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

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

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

Precious needs a dental badly. Her teeth are in pretty bad shape and she may lose a few when she gets her dental next week. She will also get a blood panel done because there is a possibility of a kidney issue. The blood panel will give us more information and until we know if there is a kidney problem, Precious won’t be available for adoption.

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

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


To date we've spent $344.67 on Precious's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $55.00 in donations.

Rocky G

Rocky G is 11 years old, weighs 10 pounds and resides in Miramar, FL.

Rocky has turned out to be such a special boy...but he still needs help with his eye issues!

THANK YOU TO ROCKY G'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Holly Stavis, Barbara Carvalho, Irene and Peter Havas in memory of Vanessa and Buddy, Wendy D'Uva, Sandra Spencer, Jan Freeman, Barbara Carvalho, Mercy Rock, Karry Rogers, Gina Hart, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Elizabeth Giannone, Sandra Wendt, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, David and Linda Rothrock, Paul Sherman, Christie Rider, Susan Petrowski, Judith Graham Burgess, Mathew Scott Gann, Jane St. John, Terry Danner, Sandra Wendt, Alfred Maiorino, Nancy Smith, Connie Pfeiffer, Rebecca Lansing, Janet Levine, Angela Heath, Elizabeth Veilleux, Gail Marino

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

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

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

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

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

Love, Rocky

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

Rocky

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Sammy
Florida
Sammy

Sammy is an adorable not quite 6 year old Yorkie pup. He weighs a little to chubby 14 pounds. Sammy is being fostered in The Villages, FL

Initial Bio 7-18-16 Meet sweet Sammy. This is one great pup. He is playful, friendly, and so well behaved. He is almost house trained. He's only had one accident since arriving at his foster home yesterday. Since then he has done all his business outside. He walks great on a leash, was amazing in the long car ride to his foster home, and he is a good eater. In fact he’s too good of an eater. Sammy really needs to lose about 2 pounds to be at a better weight for his size.

Sammy is getting along great with his foster sister. He loves to sit and cuddle with his foster mom and dad. His foster mom said he is one smart little fellow and is learning very quickly. He sleeps nicely in his crate, but would much prefer to be with his people on their bed.

Sammy had a rough start in life. He was adopted from the shelter after being turned in by his first owners. Then he was left alone for several days and managed to escape through a doggie door when his new dad had to leave him. He was found and taken in by a wonderful person. Unfortunately the apartment people wouldn't let this great dog stay even though he never barked, so he had to go. That was when United Yorkie Rescue steps in. We knew we had to take this little boy in and find him his best forever home. He deserves this after going through so much. Sammy is up to date on all his vaccinations. He is already neutered and microchipped.

Sammy is ready to find his last and final forever home. He gets along with people and dogs and would make someone such a great pet. If you think you would like to be Sammy's forever family, please submit an adoption application for him.

Adoption Pending

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

Sassy

Sassy is a cute 4 year old Yorkie mix girl. She is 11 pounds of sweetness. Sassy is being fostered in North Port, FL.

Initial bio 7/24/16 Sassy's mom moved and unfortunately could not take this adorable pup with her. United Yorkie Rescue could not let this little girl down and took her in. She arrived today at her wonderful foster home. We know a little about Sassy girl. She is house trained and leash trained. She also rides nicely in the car. Sassy seems to like other dogs and all people, kids and grownups. She loves to sit with her people on the couch and just hang out with them. We don't know how she will do with cats yet.

Sparky
Florida
Sparky

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

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

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

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

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

If you think you are the right family for Sparky and would love a perfect, well-behaved dog, please fill out an adoption application for him. You won’t be sorry.

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

Sunny
Florida
Sunny

Sunny is growing up to be movie star handsome! He could be doing those pet food commercials...What do you think?

He is a one and a half year old, 5 pound little Chorkie (Chihuahua/Yorkie mix). He is being fostered in Palm Coast, FL.

THANK YOU TO SCRUFFY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Nancy Stanley, Nancy Stanley, Linda Ruff

Updated bio 6-13-16 Sunny is a one and a half year-old little boy. He is a shy but very active Chorkie with highly inquisitive behavior. He was rescued from a hoarding situation where he spent his first 8 months in a crate not getting the amount of love and attention a puppy needs. He was then adopted from a local shelter, but the family found they really did not have the time for a puppy and again kept him crated. Just three days later his new family began noticing he was chewing at his feet and making big rub sores on his nose in his attempt to free himself from the confines of the crate. They contacted United Yorkie Rescue to find him yet another new home. At this point Sunny has been re-homed too many times in his short life and his next home must absolutely be his furever home. Due to his past of being confined only to a crate, he cannot be crated. Because he has been left alone with no companionship for most of his life Sunny also requires at least one stay at home mommy or daddy.

Sunny’s forever family needs to understand that he is still an active, young dog and displays typical puppy behavior. He needs to be guided with patience and understanding. He is still learning and exploring and he craves attention and playtime. Like a human baby he will get himself into trouble by putting things he finds around the house in his mouth and will chew on them. He is like a little vacuum and will pick up small objects he finds on the floor that could be potential choke hazards. He loves soft squeak toys and loves to chew out the little inner plastic squeaker! Sunny loves playtime with his person and other doggies his size and age, therefore another playmate in the household his size and age is required. He is very afraid of larger dogs. Sunny does display an Alpha personality so to prevent fighting a playmate in his next home should not be Alpha.

Sunny loves to run and play in the back yard or lay out in the warm sun, so a fenced back yard would be a plus. He is a cuddly little fella who loves to be held, be in your lap, or snuggle up next to you in your bed. He loves people and he loves to be around people. Because of not having any consistancy in the past, he does need help with housebreaking but being part Chihuahua and stubborn he may just have to wear belly bands when inside.

Sunny is a happy energetic little boy that craves attention. He is looking for love and the perfect home that will guide him with patience and the understanding that he has been neglected in the past.

Sunny was rescued from a hoarding situation where he spent his first 8 months in a crate. He was adopted from a local shelter as a gift to a teen boy, however the teen boy did not have the time nor the interest in having a dog and again kept him crated. Just three days later his new family began noticing he was chewing at his feet and making big rubbing sores on his nose in his attempt to free himself from the confines of the crate At that point they contacted United Yorkie Rescue to find him yet another new home.

If you think you are the right family for Sunny please fill out an adoption application for him and make this wonderful puppy your forever boy. Because of Scruffy's small size, he would not do well with children under the age of 14.

Updated bio 11/12/15 Scruffy, whose foster mom calls;Sunny is full of sunshine and love. He was previously a victim of animal hoarding. He was initially adopted from a local shelter then suddenly found himself being surrendered to United Yorkie Rescue ​when​ his new owners felt they did not have the time to commit to taking care of the requirements of a young energetic puppy.

​Scruffy has come a long way in foster care, ​though ​he is still very shy and insecure. He is also a high energy puppy and requires a​ ​lot of attention and playtime. He loves to play with squeek toys! Without constant supervision ​Scruffy​ gets into ​puppy ​mischief. He is ​very small​​ and fragile​,​ but ​he ​thinks he is a big boy. He loves other small dogs​, however he​ is very afraid of large dogs. ​Scruffy's foster mom and dad are working on his potty training. He is not all the way there, but he is learning. ​

Due to his tiny fragile size a home with children under the age of 14 will not be considered as the best placement for this little guy. Being a young little boy, ​Scruffy​ needs a home where he can run and play​,​ preferably​​ with another pup around his age and size. ​​

​Scruffy's coat is on the wiry side. He often looks like windblown, like he just finished playing and had a great time. If you think Scruffy may be the puppy for you, please submit an adoption application for this little puppy boy. ​

Update 9/17/15: Scruffy was dropped off at a shelter along with one of his siblings. The shelter separated them and adopted them out to different homes. Sadly for Scruffy after losing his companion and just when he thought he had found his furever home, his new owners decided they did not have time that was needed to raise a young dog. Because of the instability in his first months of life, he has become very timid and will require a home where there is at least one stay at home mommy or daddy.

Scruffy hates to be crated and crating him all day is not an option, as this has been his life over the past 8 months. He has made several sores on his nose and foot trying to get out of his crate.

He is a wonderful sweet little guy that is just looking for love and a home where he will be the little prince furever. Scruffy loves to be held, be in your lap, snuggle with you in your bed at night, and just be close to his person. He is not high energy but more of a low-key easy going little guy. In the morning he wakes with his tail wagging and makes little happy growls as his way of saying “good morning”!

Scruffy gets along well with other dogs and would love a playmate his size and approximate age. Because he has been crated and not given much attention, he does need help with house training. Scruffy needs and deserves a home where he will be loved furever.

Due to his small size and shyness, a home with children over the age of 12 is preferred. Although he is young, he is not your typical puppy. He is shy and quiet and very loving. If you have the time to commit to helping this little guy overcome his shyness and insecurities and can guide him with patience and understanding then perhaps this little man would be a pawfect fit for your home. Please understand that Scruffy is very young and he needs a family that can give him a lifelong commitment.

Initial Bio 9-17-15 Meet the cutest puppy in town. This is Scruffy, an 8.5 month old, tiny little 4.8 pound chorkie (yorkie/chihuahua) boy. Scruffy is being temporarily fostered in Leesburg, FL.

Scruffy came to his foster home today. He was surrendered by a family who adopted him from a shelter. After a short while they realized they just did not have the time to train and work with a puppy. They knew they could not give him what he needed. Scruffy may have some allergies, but his foster parents are working on that. He needs another parvo/distemper puppy booster shot and a second deworming pill in 2 weeks and he will be ready to finally find his forever home. This puppy has already been in 3 homes in such a short time. It's no wonder he is having hard time with his training and with feeling secure and settled.

He loves to run around outside and like most puppies he has a lot of puppy energy. A fenced yard would be great for Scruffy. When he is ready for his puppy naps he loves to snuggle and give kisses. He gets along great with other dogs and older kids. He won't be able to go to a home with children younger than 12 years old because of his small size.

Scruffy is already microchipped and neutered and will be fully vaccinated shortly. Please keep in mind Scruffy is a very young dog and he is very active. He will need a family that has the time and energy to train him properly and kindly with his manners and his house training while understanding the needs of an active puppy. Scruffy has many years of living left in him, so he needs a home with a family who can make at least a 15 year commitment to him.

If you think you are the right family for Scruffy, please fill out an adoption application for him. Watch for new pictures and updates on Scruffy as he settles into his foster home.

Timmie

Timmie

Timmie is an adorable, little 5 pound, 3 year old Yorkie boy. He is 5 pounds of sweetness. Timmy is being fostered in Wellington, FL.

Initial bio 7-17-16 Meet Timmie, and what a cutie he is. He is such a small bundle of love who is very affectionate and loves to be cuddled. Timmie walks nicely on a leash and loves to go for walks. Although Timmy has just arrived at his foster home his foster parents said he is getting along just fine with the other dogs and the cats too in the home.

Timmy is not house trained yet and his foster parents will be working hard on that. It is hoped he may do better after his neuter. For now he is sporting an attractive belly band while in the house.

Timmy needs to be neutered, have all his vaccinations including a heartworm and fecal test. He may also need his teeth cleaned, but his foster parents will know more after Timmie makes his visit to the vet this week.

Stay turned for more on Timmy as his foster parents get to know him better.

Zoey
Florida
Zoey

Meet sweet Zoey our new little yorkie foster baby. She is just 6.9 pounds of sweetness. She is 10 years young. Zoey is being fostered in Dunedin, FL. If you a looking for a Velcro baby, Zoey is the one for you.

Initial Bio 7-11-16 Zoey has only been in her foster home a short while, but we do know a little about her. Zoey is very sweet and loves people. Right now she seems to be a little scared of the other fur friends in her foster home. She didn’t react badly, just backed away as far as she could from them and was clearly frightened. Her foster mom is hoping once she settles in she will be better with them.

Zoey travels great in a car. She is totally housetrained and has been sleeping in bed with her foster parents with no issues. She appears to be a bit of a picky eater and only eats soft food. She's shy and hasn't barked at all since coming to her foster home.

Zoey likes to pick one person and hang out with them. She then becomes their shadow. It is sad for this little girl who was yanked from the only home she ever knew and found herself with new people in a whole different environment. But she loves people and will bond with her human very quickly.

Zoey will need to have her vaccinations updated and a dental and will then be ready for her forever home. She really needs a retired or semi-retired person who is able to spend a lot of time with her one on one and can bond with her completely. No children please for this girl. She would most likely do best as an only dog who can then get all the attention she wants.

Do not let Zoey’s age scare you. She has many good years left in her. She really is an active little girl and will enjoy walks, maybe a fenced yard, and lots of attention. If you are looking for a great companion, a love bug, and the best friend you can find, this is the sweet baby girl for you.

Teddy
Georgia
Teddy

Meet Teddy who is an adorable 3 year old, 5 pound Yorkie Mix boy. He is residing in Suwanee, GA.

Initial Bio 7/17/16

Teddy is a 3-year-old 5 pound Morkie (Maltese and Yorkie mix) residing in Suwanee, GA just outside of Atlanta. Teddy is a little thin and could stand to gain a pound or two. He has a lovely long tail and the cutest ears you've ever seen. One stands up at attention and the other flops over at a rakish angle. Teddy is new to his foster home and is a little bit confused. We are patiently waiting to see his real personality. Teddy is crate trained but not yet fully house trained. He loves lots and lots of attention and is happy to be carried around or to be sitting in his person's lap where he can get lots of head and belly "scritches". Teddy came from a home where he was not the only dog but where his designated owner in the family just didn't have time to give Teddy the attention he craves. The family thought it would be in Teddy's better interest for him to find a home where he can be the center of attention. Teddy gets along with other dogs but is not comfortable with small children. Supposedly Teddy can be very vocal but right now he's as quiet as a mouse. It may take him some time to settle in and once he does we will provide more details about his personality.


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

Oliver IL
Illinois
Oliver

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

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

THANK YOU TO OLIVER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

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

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

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

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

Kimmie
Indiana
Kimmie

Little Kimmie is a female Yorkie/Maltese mix. She is now 3 months old, 1.4 pounds and resides in Indianapolis, IN

Although Foster Mom appreciates all the interest in Kimmie, she cannot respond to email inquiries or adoption applications at this time.

Additionally, no Out-of-State adopters will be considered. Kimmie must be adopted locally within the state of Indiana.

THANK YOU TO KIMMIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Irene and Peter Havas in memory of Buddy and Vanessa, Holly Young, Peggy Mobley

Update Bio: Time to celebrate! Kimmie now weighs 2.0 pounds. She goes up and down the stairs. Kimmie has no concept of her size and loves to play with the big dogs! She plays really hard and then crashes because she is so tired! She had one vaccination today and will return in a month for another! Slow and steady is the way to go!

Update 6/9/16: We are celebrating today! Kimmie now weighs 1.4 pounds. She is growing in leaps and bounds. Literally! She now is going up and down the patio steps to go potty in the grass. Toys are scattered around the room because she loves to play. Today she received her Bordetella vaccination. The Dogtor wants to spread her vaccintions out. Kimmie has no fear of dogs 10 times her size...she walks right up and gives kisses! Stay tuned for more updates!

Update 05/13/16: Woo hoo Kimmie now weighs .9 pounds. Dogtor said she is doing great. We are still feeding her round the clock. She has been sleeping most of today because the dogtor gave Kimmie her first shot.

She loves to torment her foster brother and sister by chasing them around the house. She enjoys going outside and playing in the grass and even potties outside at times.

Kimmie's next check-up is on June 9. We'll keep you apprised of her progress. Ta ta for now!

Initial Bio 05/01/16: Meet Kimber, AKA Kimmie. She is a six-week old Maltese Yorkie mix. She weighs .69 lbs. She is half the size of her litter mates. She loves to scamper around and follows me around the house. She is fed about every two hours to add some weight. Don't let her size fool you though, if she wants out of her crate, she will squeal like a pig till you let her out. The Dogtor wants her to be a full pound before we start doing tests to why she is such a peanut! We will keep you posted on how Kimmie is progressing!


To date we've spent $240.42 on Kimmie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $60.00 in donations.

Rocco

Rocco

Sweet Rocco is a 5 year old, 9.5 pound male Yorkie residing in Carmel, IN

Please read Rocco's continuing health journey story....He is asking for help with his mounting medical bills...can you help him and please keep him in your thoughts!

THANK YOU TO ROCCO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandra Wendt, Susan Smith Wheeler, Connie Vaughn, Catherine Parker, Jane St. John, Wendy Tillotson, Stephanie Slack, Connie Peters, Sari Mandresh, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Jane St. John, Lory Foster, Stacy and Henry Powell, Jessica Ranger, Anita Konick, Jane St. John, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, David Rothrock, Sandra Wendt, Brenda Bargers, Karry Rogers, Tim and Dawn Hawkins, Jill Yablon, Amanda McKay, Jo-Ellen Gasior, Sheila Cohen, Olga Stecker, Irene and Peter Havas in memory of Buddy and Forever Ours Vanessa, Erin Horton, Anita Konick, Connie, Amy Chernault, Elizabeth Giannone, Angela Heath, Candace Haupt, Kimber Santorella, Robert Tiedeken, Irene and Peter Havas in Memory of Buddy and Vanessa

6-27-16 Bio update: Rocco continues to do well on his prescription low protein diet when it is given in 4-5 small feedings a day with his lactulose given at the same time. He just finished a 3 week round of antibiotics is also continuing to take his Prilosec and Denamarin daily. We will be seeing the dogter in a couple of weeks to check his ammonia levels after he has been off of his antibiotics for a couple of weeks. Due to his inoperable liver shunt, it is going to be very important to keep his ammonia levels down with diet and medications and sometimes it requires frequent adjustments in the lactulose and addition of antibiotics to keep the toxins down in his digestive tract which cause the increased ammonia levels. Also due to the large bladder stones that Rocco had removed, we are using distilled water in hopes that may slow any return formation of the stones. He will need to be watched carefully for the stone formation in the future.

Rocco is such a loving little guy and when he is feeling good, he loves to play tug-of-war and chase the toy. He does have his good days and some not quite so good. Rocco was surprised this last week when he received a prayer blanket and toy in the mail from a very loving lady in Texas! He loves them both and sleeps all curled up in his blanket every night. Rocco says "Thank you for thinking about me!"

Bio Update 05/31/16: Rocco continues to have a lot going on in his life. Foster mom took Rocco to the University of Tennessee for his Liver Shunt and Bladder surgery on 4/27/16, but everything didn't go quite as planned for little Rocco. During surgery, the dogter could see Rocco's liver shunt and it was evident that Rocco has what is called an "acquired liver shunt" meaning it formed over a period of time and formed in response to Rocco having a smaller than normal liver. Acquired liver shunts are not operable, so the dogter was unable to repair that, but did remove all of the bladder stones from Rocco's urinary bladder that were causing him so much discomfort and problems. Due to the fact that Rocco's liver shunt was inoperable, he will need to be on a special diet and receive medications to help keep the toxins in his body at a minimum. We are still working on a "perfect schedule" but Rocco receives 5 small meals a day and gets his lactulose with those meals. He also receives other medications to help keep him stable and help his liver to be in the best physical condition possible for him. We have had a couple of setbacks with UTI's but with all the surgery to his bladder, that was sort of to be expected. Foster mom will continue to optimize Rocco's treatment plan over the next month or so and then Rocco will have blood tests to see if his liver enzymes are better now with the treatment. Hopefully the medications and diet will improve his liver function and continue to decrease the level of toxins Rocco has that build up, and with that potential improvement, he will stop or slow down the formation of bladder stones that become so painful and problematic for him. We are hoping for much improved blood test results when we go back to the dogter at the end of June.

As you can imagine, Rocco's medical care has been very expensive. If you would like to help Rocco, or any of his UYR doggie friends with a donation toward their care, they are so very grateful. If not for the love and generosity of all of the United Yorkie friends and followers, our dogs would not be able to receive the care and have the opportunity for such a great life. Rocco says a great big "Thank You!!!" to all that have helped both him and all of the UYR dogs!! Our donors and supporters are our true "HEROS!"

Bio Update 4/24/2016: Hi everybody!! Rocco here!! Boy do I feel better than I did the first day I learned who UYR was!! I had been feeling very bad for a long time but wasn’t able to let anyone know. When I met my foster mom, she told me on my way to her house, “Little guy, there is something wrong with you and we will find out what is wrong and fix it!” Well, if there is one thing I have learned this last month it is “When foster mom and UYR say something, they REALLY MEAN IT!” I don’t understand all this stuff I hear foster mom talking about, but I just do what she tells me to do and all is well! I’m just happy I met UYR and all of you great friends of UYR and I’m gonna let foster mom explain it all to you now! Love you all, Rocco!

Foster mom here: Sorry this update is so late. This last 4 weeks have sure been a rollercoaster for little Rocco!! When he was surrendered, he was having problems throwing up after eating and it seemed that he needed to go out to potty very frequently, even though he was only going a very small amount. We went to the dogter the next morning and they gave Rocco some fluids, pain meds and medication for nausea, then drew some labs and did an x-ray. When we got the lab results back, it was apparent he had stones in his bladder and something was wrong with Rocco’s liver, but since he was over 5 years old, it was strange to just start having problems with a liver shunt. After more x-rays, more labs, ultrasounds and 2 internal medicine doctors, we now know Rocco definitely has a liver shunt, has a large bladder stone and smaller ones also and his liver is smaller than normal. With differing opinions from the 2 internal medicine dogters about what the best treatment would be for Rocco, I am very happy to say, Rocco is going to the University of Tennessee Vet School Small Animal Clinic and will be having surgery there. They wanted him to be on a special diet, take medication and get in the best shape he could by the time we go for his appointment. The plan is to do both the bladder surgery to remove the stones and the liver shunt surgery at the same time.

With that said, Rocco is scheduled for his pre-surgery appointment this Tuesday (4/26) and surgery on Wednesday (4/27). Foster mom loaded up the 5th wheel and will be staying close by while Rocco has his surgery and is in the hospital for a few days. (Foster mom wants to be sure everyone knows that UYR is not paying for any of the transportation or any other costs except for Rocco’s medical bills)

With Rocco’s unusual presentation of a liver shunt and longstanding and untreated symptoms, it has been a costly road and we still have the “big event” (surgery) to pay. If you would like to help Rocco with his journey to better health and hopefully a long, happy life ahead of him, please either go to his YouCaring link on our Home page of our website or just click on the PayPal link right below this information! Rocco is one of the sweetest little guys you could ever meet and we want to make sure he can share that sweetness for a long, long time to come! And Rocco sends kisses and says “Thank you friends!”

Update 03/07/16: Rocco's "ADOPTION IS ON HOLD" while we work to understand some of his health issues. Rocco's Foster Mom will keep us informed as the situation is further diagnosed.

Initial Bio 3/3/16: Meet Rocco, a 5 year old, 9.5 pound Yorkie that is being fostered in Carmel, IN. He just arrived at his foster mom's home late yesterday and still isn't sure about what has just happened to his life. One thing I know for sure, he is a very loving little guy and loves to snuggle whenever possible. Rocco is overdue on his vaccinations and is in need of a dental cleaning which will be done in the near future. Meanwhile, he will be adjusting to a new home and getting to know his foster brothers. Since Rocco is still getting comfortable in his foster home, I will update him soon when I know more about him.

Charlie
Iowa
Charlie

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

THANK YOU TO CHARLIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Mary Mays-Delamater, Nancy Stanley, Carol Nelson

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

Sincerely, Susan Foster Mom

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

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

Love, Charlie

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

Sincerely, Chuck’s UYR Foster Mom

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

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

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

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

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

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

Paco

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

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

THANK YOU TO PACO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Roxy
Iowa
Roxy

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

THANK YOU TO ROXY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Susan Lorenzen

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

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

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

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

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

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

Adoption Pending

Scruffy

Scruffy is a 9 year old male poodle who came with his "Yorkie brother", Poppy. Scruffy is being fostered in Urbandale, IA

Scruffy is looking for one special person to love..please read his Update!

THANK YOU TO SCRUFFY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Jennifer and Joel Tobiansky, Sandra Wendt, Sandra Wendt

Update Bio: 06/28/16. Scruffy is doing well since his initial bio was done when he arrived in Iowa. He is afraid of storms I found out last week. He is a fast learner as well. The one thing he does that I haven't had luck getting him to stop doing, is growling. However he doesn't bite. He rolls over to have his belly rubbed, growling the whole time. Scruffy is a good boy, he would prefer to be the only fur baby in your life. He loves to be near someone, he would be great for a retired person, of a trucker. If he can be near the right human he's happy. Scruffy is older, sounds like s grump, but he is also a thief, he has stolen his foster families heart. He would be a great companion for the right person.

Sincerely, Susan Foster Mom

Update Bio 05/25/16: Hello, my name is Scruffy. I'm a senior poodle with very simple needs. I need to be fed of course, I need to feel trust, feel safe and be loved. The best environment for me would be living on the road with a very nice trucker. I don't like large crowds or other dogs around me. I don't want people coming over to visit and trying to touch me. I want one special someone all to myself. I LOVE to go for car rides. I hope there is a special "trucker" out there searching for a special traveling buddy, ME!

With love, Scruffy

Initial Bio 3/30/16: Scruffy was surrendered by his owner who was no longer able to care for him. Scruffy is sweet but does have "attitude". He loves being cuddled and loves to lay in the sun, and will object to being moved. He shows his displeasure by growling He will stop when told "no" and we are working with him to correct this behavior. In every other respect he really is a love. Scruffy will be seeing the vet soon so please watch for more information on this cutie.

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

THANK YOU TO BRIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Dawn Gowen

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

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

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

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

Initial Bio 5/31/16: Brie here… I am a 9 year old spayed female Yorkie, but don’t let that fool you, I love to play and have a ball bounced off my nose. Tummy rubs and snuggles are also a favorite.

My owner became ill and was unable to care for me and felt I was being neglected because she couldn’t walk or play with me as in the past. So here I am looking for a new home with help from UYR.

I have had some health issues. I was born with multiple Porto Systemic shunts. I had surgery in 2011 to close the major shunt. Also, I have allergies, I haven’t been specifically diagnosed. Chicken is something I can’t have. I’m up to date with my shots and take monthly heart worm medicine, flea/tick preventative.

By the way, I’m trained to a “piddle pad”, but will do my business outside when it’s offered. I do have one little habit, I steal socks, yup the dirty ones and I love it when you chase me for it. Hee, Hee.

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


To date we've spent $451.27 on Brie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $50.00 in donations.

Axl
North Carolina
Axl

Axl is 6 years old, 7 pounds and resides in Winston Salem, NC

THANK YOU TO AXL'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Mary Ireland, Dawn Kestler

7/8/2016 Update

Axl a 8lb 6oz bundle of Yorkie Love. Equipped with Kisses for Everyone!

A snuggle buddy??? . . . youbetcha!

Previous reports on this special pup was not so promising . . . fear of kidney disorders however . . . after his visit with Carolina Veterinary Specialist . . and he got his Kidney Ultrasound results they write:

“Both kidneys are architecturally normal. The remainder of the abdomen is unremarkable, including spleen, liver, gall bladder, adrenals, GI tract, urinary bladder and prostate. Conclusions. Normal abdominal study”

The proof is in the pudding, and this handsome little pudd’thang is healthy with no kidney disorders, and this foster mom has the papers to prove it.

Now, more about this remarkable little Yorkie! Axl recently went on a road trip (1-way 6 hours) and I can confess, he is the best traveling dog I have seen! He was great in the car. The hotel attendants as well as the guest all loved him. He was very friendly, and he had no stress issues. He ate well, went out like a champ, quickly adjusting to his surroundings and was really, no trouble at all. A dream come true for a Roadie Pup! Axl loves to play with soft toys and will tug and growl in play just like he has a complete set of teeth holding those little toys. (Remember he has no teeth due to the extent of sinus infections he had upon rescue arrival, they were extracted – a plus for his new owner – no dental cost!) He has his own little blanket made especially for him by the Furblanketeers. Mostly house broke, loves to go outside with his person to walk, run and play among the grass and does well on a leash. He loves to munch on the grass as well, doesn’t make him sick like a lot of dogs, he just likes it!

Axl is up to date on all shots and vaccinations. He is mainly on a soft diet, but he still munches on dry food, as I leave out for snacks. Pet Smart’s Hill’s Science Diet, Chicken & Barley Entrée, and Nutro Tender Chicken Rice & Oatmeal, both loaf / pate blends, and I add boiled chicken breast to each meal. Upon his arrival he was hardly 7lbs and now he is 8 lbs and 6oz of total Yorkie love. Dogtor Jeni reports his body mass and overall appearance has improved considerably.

Although Axl’s suspicious protein content in his urine is curious, and his labs indicated Proteniuria, he is now diagnosed NOT to have Proteniuria, but believe it is prudent to continue to monitor him. Dogtor Jeni is stopping the use of Enalapri Maleate (his kidney medication) immediately! No more kidney medication, he doesn’t need it.

Axl still remains to have sinus/allergy problems. As stated in previous bios, this condition is usually treated with prednisone; however, we will continue the use of the Apoquel 3.6mg knowing that prolong use of prednisone is a contributing factor to kidney disease in small pups. So NO prednisone for this pup! Apoquel is given in ½ tablet increments. When showing symptoms of sinus/allergy problems, dosage is ½ tablet 2x per day. Once his symptoms subside, reduce to ½ per day and then following a few good days of decreased symptoms reduce to ½ tablet every other day to help ward off symptoms.

Axl is such a sweet lovable boy and is happy following his person around the house, riding in the car, going to the park and any activity that he can be with his person. Axl is a very special boy and his happiness is most important. Remember – no crates, he does fine with a gate. Must have belly rubs. If you would like to make your home Axl’s furerver home please complete an application for his adoption at http://www.unitedyorkierescue.org

Update 5/16/2016. Axl is a 6 year old, 7-pound yorkie boy. He is being fostered in Winston Salem, NC.

This sweet boy, whose foster mom said his name Axl is just another name for love, is full of love and Yorkie kisses.

He is attentive, smart, handsome, and loves to be with his person. He is truly a Yorkie dream come true. He loves belly rubs! He will lie on his back in your lap as you rub his belly, and finally he'll just go off to sleep. Then you can actually move him like a baby to another place on the couch! He is so loving and trusting.

Axl loves to explore the outdoors with his person or with a pup friend who is just his size. He loves trotting about in the fenced yard. He has that long lean body and mid length hair. He is quite handsome as he parades about. He does well on a leash and enjoys rides in the car. He gets along with everyone, even cats. Axl is almost house trained. His foster mom does keep a bellyband on him, but it is rarely wet upon removing. Axl does not like to be in a crate. He is fine in a room with a gate if he must be contained. If you put down potty pads he will use them.

Axl had a full dental along with a radiograph of his gums. He was scheduled to have a sinus flush. Luckily the medication prescribed cleared up his nasty sinus infection and it was determined he no longer needed the flush. However, due to the extent of his sinus infection, aggravated by allergies, the vet believed it affected his teeth. Therefore all of his teeth, the ones he did have left, were pulled except for one. His gums were X-rayed and there was no root/gum infection found.

Axl is adjusting well and is eating like a champ. He still munches dry food, but prefers wet with a little boiled chicken mixed in with it. He feels so much better with all of the infection gone. Axl’s sinus/allergy infection was treated with Apoquel. This medication is used primarily for itching, however it has recently been effective as an alternative to prednisone. Since sinus/allergy issues usually reoccur throughout the dog’s life, alternative medications are sought as prednisone may have damaging effects on the kidneys with repeated usage.

Axl has shown a little abnormal protein in his kidneys. The vet and his foster parent are monitoring that. The levels have decreased in his follow up lab tests. But they will continue to be monitored. Axl is scheduled for neutering in the next two weeks. He is up to date on all vaccinations, and shots.

Axl needs a home with someone who will be home most of the time. He needs someone who has the time to spend with him and will show him how much love there is in the world to give. Axl would do well in a home with children over the age of 12 and/or another friendly loving pup his size. Axl will be a trusted, true companion. He is one of the most lovable yorkies his foster mom has ever met. Every inch of him is stitched in love.

If you would like to adopt Axl, please go to our website at www.unitedyorkierescue.org and complete an adoption application for him. You can contact his foster mom at Laloba1016@yahoo.com

Initial bio 4-6-16 Axl is a 6 year old, 7 pound Yorkie boy being fostered in Winston Salem, NC.

Axl came to us from a home where his owner no longer was able to give him the attention he needs. He wanted the best for Axl so he reached out to UYR for help in finding him a perfect new forever home. Axl is a very sweet little boy. He loves to be held and with his person. Axl enjoys exploring in his fenced in yard with the companionship of another same size dog in which to romp and play. Axl gets along well with everyone, even the cat, and gladly rewards his attention with a sweet kiss. He is familiar to the leash, however needs a little training, and he is doing well using training pads. A gated area is required as he is very unhappy in a crate.

Axl's foster mom noticed he was having some persistent sinus issues so she took him to the Vet for evaluation. In order to really determine what the root of the problem is they will need to get specimens from his sinus to send to the lab. Axl also needs to have his teeth cleaned and be neutered. He will have some of this done on May 10th and at that time additional xrays and sinus washings will be taken to get a better picture of what might be going on with Axl's sinuses.

As we are still learning about this sweet boy, his foster mom is considering every application for Axl and will do everything possible to find him the most perfect furever home. Please stay tuned for more information as we continue to enjoy learning all about Axl.


To date we've spent $1592.29 on Axl's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $150.00 in donations.

Mister Bear
Ohio
Mister Bear

Mister Bear is an 11 year old, 10 pound Yorkie male residing in Cleveland, OH

Update Bio: 06/27/16. Mister is scheduled for a dental and blood work on Wednesday, June 29th. He is 11 years old, but do NOT let that fool you. He is a very active dog. If you don't like squeaky toys, Mister is not the dog for you. He loves to play with them all the time. He can play fetch, he loves walks and just to be with you. He is on a grain free diet (Solid Gold) which seems to be working for him and his skin. He can jump regular baby gates, he will go into a crate but is not happy about it at first. He eventually calms down. He is not a destructive dog (well except with those squeakers ). :) Updated photos coming soon.

Initial Bio 05/21/16: Mister Bear is 11 years old. He is still very active for his age and loves to go for walks and play with squeaky toys. He loves children and just being around his humans. He is crate trained but prefers to sleep in the bed with you at night. He is also house trained.

Mister Bear's family had to surrender him because of family challenges; they were unable to walk him and give him the attention and loving lap-time he deserves. Mister Bear will be seen by our veterinarian to check out his dry skin condition and get his vaccinations updated. Stay tuned for more information on this sweet boy!

Adoption Pending

To date we've spent $584.50 on Mister Bear's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Bo is packed and waiting!

Happy Tongue Out Tuesday!
Tennessee
Bo

Bo is a 9 year old 11.5 pound Yorkie boy being fostered in Ashland City, TN. Bo is all packed up and ready for his forever home. Bo is a UYR favorite and he is SUCH AN AWESOME BOY!

THANK YOU TO BO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Irene and Peter Havas in memory of Buddy and Vanessa, Sheila Landis in memory of Miss Chickie Dog, Mary Ireland, Yorkies Lost and Found Nationwide,

Updated Bio 7/18/2016

All of us at UYR are AMAZED that this boy has not been adopted yet! Bo is a FANTASTIC dog. Seriously……this guy is a UYR member and fan favorite who is going to make some lucky adopter UNBELIEVABLY happy. Bo is a happy, healthy, adorable little pudgy guy that is ready to go to his forever home. As you can see from his photo, his BAGS ARE PACKED (actually his giant TRUNK is packed) and he is waiting by the door! Bo thinks humans are the greatest and he gets along great with ALL other animals too! He would especially like a human who has two free hands available for dispensing treats and giving constant belly rubs. Bo is OVER THE MOON sweet and he just lights up whenever someone comes into the room. He gets really excited when his Foster Mom gets home from work because that means it's about to be "Supper Time" which is Bo’s favorite time of day! Bo simply adores his food! Bo has lost several teeth due to poor dental care and that is the reason for his permanent “Tongue Out Tuesday” look. Again…..we think this only adds to his charm! We can assure you that the absence of several teeth does IN NO WAY interfere with Bo’s ability to consume and enjoy is food! He is very food motivated. Healthy treats are a plus for him. He’s a bit on the pudgy side so he will need a person who won’t succumb to his adorable “please feed me whatever I want” look and will help him stick to a healthy diet and treats.

Bo’s favorite activities (besides eating LOL) are going for walks with his humans, getting belly rubs, and just “hanging out” with his person. Bo would be the PERFECT companion to someone who just wants a couch buddy to cuddle up with and be their canine best pal.

In the housetraining arena Bo likes to potty on wee-wee pads but will also go outdoors when he is walked outside frequently. Rewarding him with a healthy treat also is a good motivator for Bo to do his “business” where he should.

Bo is a snuggle bear and prefers to share seating arrangements with his human at ALL TIMES. He also wants to share the bed and will steal your pillows for his own comfort!

Bo’s Foster Mom keeps telling him that VERY SOON there is a perfect family who can't wait to meet him and adopt him to be a part of the family FOREVER. Bo began to smile and placed his suitcase by the door.........COME ON EVERYBODY! DON’T LET BO WAIT ANOTHER DAY. Please apply to adopt him today and share his story so Bo can have the forever home he’s been so patiently waiting for.

Updated Bio: 6/11/16 Bo is a wonderful, sweet 9-year-old 11 lb. Yorkie fellow. He is being fostered in Ashland City, TN. Bo's adoption fee is $200 and he is worth every penny of it. This fee includes all vetting (neuter, dental cleaning, immunizations, microchip and chip registration). A Vet reference, personal references, and home visit are required for adoption. You may apply to adopt sweet Bo by going to our website at www.unitedyorkierescue.org and completing the adoption application located on our home page.

Bo has finally completed his heartworm treatment and is now ready for his FOREVER home. This baby is the ultimate snuggle buddy and he truly loves his foster mom. He follows her everywhere and loves lying beside her on the couch. Bo will not go potty outside unless she takes him. He loves to sleep on her shoulder every night.

Bo gets along great with his foster sisters, but would be just fine as the man of the house with no competition. He is not much for playing with toys and also isn't much for playing with his foster sisters. He is just happy to be lounging beside his person. He is okay in the bath and tolerates it. Bath time is definitely not a favorite, though he is so sweet natured he doesn’t complain. He takes it like a man.

Bo is not completely housetrained but will go on wee wee pads most of the time. Foster mom puts a bellyband on Bo when she is at work. Bo will go potty outside but for some reason he seems to like to goes poo in the house. Foster mom is working on that. Bo is a funny little character who had so much love to give.

Before rescue he was used as a breeder dog so he is just now learning what it means to be a cherished pet. Since Bo seems to prefer females a home with a loving mom would be great for Bo. He also needs to go to a home with children who are at least 14 year old and older. Bo is truly a sweetie and he deserves to live out the rest of his life being loved and giving love in return. He promises to make you smile every single day. Are you the perfect match for him?

Updated Bio 4/20/2016 Bo has begun his heartworm treatment and has now completed the toughest part. His injections are now behind him and he is on activity restriction while the medicine works its magic to kill the heartworms that have invaded his heart. Bo is loving the extra attention from his foster Mom and has even started his own Facebook Page called Bo the Rescue Dog!

Bo is a fun and funny little guy. He has a very adorable look about him due to his permanent “tongue out” grin and his perpetually messy hair. Bo has lost all of his front teeth due to neglect but that does not seem to affect him as he can still eat and chew just fine. He likes his hair “messy” and every time you brush it flat he will rub it with his paw to make it stand up again LOL. He likes the “spiked” look!

He loves to be close to his person as in jammed up next to them as tight as his fat little body can get. However, he does not give kisses and if you try to catch him he will play “hard to get” and make you chase him around the house like a little piglet. Once you stop he will stop too and then he will approach you. This is one of Bo’s little “catch me” games. He makes his foster Mom and Dad laugh every day. His little quirks and quirkiness will make everyone who meets him fall in love.

He LOVES food and his very food motivated. He is overweight and needs to lose a pound or two but that is very challenging to do while he is on a very restricted activity. He is on a reduced calorie diet but so far his weight remains the same. We are hopeful that when he is off of his activity restriction that exercise will help. For now, Bo and his foster Mom are happy to be maintaining his current weight. Bo is a very “chill” dog. He does not require a lot of stimulation or activity, he is happy to just go with the flow and hang out with his human. He travels well in the car and loves to go out in the RV with his foster Mom and Dad. He is okay with other dogs and cats but would also be fine as an only dog. Bo is not housetrained but he will go outside if taken very frequently. If not, well Bo will go wherever he wants. We will be working on this in his foster home.

We think Bo will be ready for adoption around the end of May. We are taking applications for him already. He will still need to have one final heartworm test in a few months just to make sure everything is clear but we feel that if all goes well over the next month he can go ahead and find his new forever person. If you think you might be a great match for adorable quirky Bo, then apply to adopt him or email his foster mom at tnyorkiemama@yahoo.com for more information.

Bo is counting on knowing that there are many kind, caring and generous humans out there who will help him and help UYR pay for his care. Every single penny donated to help Bo will go directly towards his care. If you can donate even a SMALL amount towards his care it would be SO VERY APPRECIATED by Bo, his Foster Mom and Dad and all of us at United Yorkie Rescue. To donate towards Bo's care, please click the PayPal button below and THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Initial Bio 3/14/2016 Bo has just landed in his foster home. He came from an owner with several other dogs including two Yorkie mix puppies Hatch and Hank (also surrendered to United Yorkie Rescue) who are Bo’s 10 week old sons. Bo’s owners could not afford to give him the care he needs so they reached out for help.

Bo has some serious medical needs that we have already begun to address.

The most serious of these is that poor Bo has heart worms. Heart worm disease is very prevalent in dogs who are not given regular heart worm prevention medicine. It is easily prevented but unfortunately it is not easily treated or cured. Because Bo did not have the benefit of heart worm prevention medications prior to rescue he will now have to go the long, painful and unpleasant treatment regimen. This consists of oral medication and a series of painful injections into his spine. He will also have to be confined during the treatment to minimize the stress on his heart while the adult heartworms die, degenerate and are slowly absorbed into his system and eliminated from his little body. This will not be a pleasant experience for Bo, but sadly this is the only known effective treatment.

Another pressing health concern for Bo is the terrible condition his mouth is in. He has only two remaining teeth and these were severely infected as well as his entire mouth. Bo is already a permanent “tongue out” boy due to the absence of teeth that hold the tongue in place. We think it makes him even more adorable. He had a major dental procedure today and is now on antibiotics to clear up the remaining infection. All infection must be gone before he can begin his heart worm treatment which will last for 4-6 months. For this reason, Bo will not be adoptable for quite some time.

Beau is also quite overweight. he currently weights 11.5 pounds and should be at around 7-8 pounds for his frame. His former diet included a lot of table scraps so his diet needs to improve. He will start on a soft prescription weight loss food today that should help him slim down.

So far Bo is very sweet, and gets along fine humans and with other animals. He is not house trained but we will work on that in his foster home. For now he wears a belly band to help with that. Beau HATES BATH TIME. If he sees you running a bath and getting out the doggie shampoo he will quickly get into his "escape and evade" mode LOL.

Bo has just arrived in his foster home. He has a very long path to recovery ahead of him. His care is going to be VERY EXPENSIVE. Bo is counting on knowing that there are many kind, caring and generous humans out there who will help him with each step of his journey. Every single penny donated to help Bo will go directly towards his care. If you can donate even a SMALL amount towards his care it would be SO VERY APPRECIATED by Bo, his Foster Mom and Dad and all of us at United Yorkie Rescue. To donate towards Bo's care, please click the PayPal button below and THANK YOU SO MUCH!

What is cuter than a Yorkie puppy? Answer? NOTHING! Sweet little Louie is one of the puppies born to UYR foster Jessa (now adopted!).

Dandy
Texas
Dandy

Meet Dandy, a 9 year old, 7 pound sweet Maltese boy who is being fostered in Gainesville, TX

THANK YOU TO DANDY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Larry Farnsworth, Sheila Coleman, Pascaline Golie, Gale Young, Sandra Wendt, Bonnie Vaupel, Crystal Shores, Bea-Ann West, Bert McCollum, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Sarah Bartel, Jane St. John, Angela Heath, Crystal Shores, Joyce Andrews

Update 06/22/16: Poor Dandy isn't feeling too well after his surgery. Thankfully he has some good pain medications to help with the discomfort. He and his sister, Cici who had her right eye removed yesterday due to a tumor, are both being nursed by their foster mom who is giving them lots of love and gentle attention.

Update 06/20/16: Sweet little Dandy had his dental surgery today. He had 7 extractions and also had some retained roots removed. His teeth were in such poor condition, his jawbone was compromised with infection. He will be on antibiotics and pain medication for some time until his poor little mouth heals.

06/14/2016 Hi everyone! It’s me Dandy!! Lot’s of good things have happening in my life since my foster mom last wrote about me. I’ve been playing and being such a sweet boy; my foster mom says that “I’m going to melt someone’s heart very soon.” Wow, I must be hot!! I have to go see the dentist next week and he might just take out my last few teeth because they are pretty gross. I’ll just have to wow you with my good looks after that happens. I’ve been practicing that tongue out Tuesday look and I think I have it down already.

My foster mom also said that there might be this special day coming up VERY VERY soon after that. Although I love my foster mom so much, I think she’s going to surprise me with a new mommy and daddy and brothers and sisters and other fur kids that I’m going to be special to. She say’s I deserve the best, so I know I can trust her with my heart. Meanwhile, I’ll just sit here looking cute, since I do that really really good, or lay around or play with my foster siblings until that day comes. Love to everyone,Dandy.

06/07/2016: Initial vetting is complete on sweet Dandy. Dandy does need a dental and will probably need a specialist as there is very little bone surrounding one of his teeth that needs removing. He does have some patellar deviation in his front knees. One might be due to an injury his owner stated happened as a puppy when his leg got stuck in a door. He will also be on a diet so that we can get his little body back to a teacup size. He represents the saying “a bouncing baby boy” … he is so full of life and just a joy.

06/06/2016: Initial bio: Hi everyone, omg, meet this cutie Dandy! Dandy is a little Maltese. Dandy has come to UYR as an owner surrender from his father because his mommy passed and he was left him with 5 dogs to care for. He is the cutest little polar bear cub you will ever see! He absolutely loves everybody and he gets along great with other dogs, cats and children of all ages. He is attached at my hip wherever I go, so if anyone is looking for the cutest little shadow of a dog, he is just for you. Dandy looks wonderful overall. He has had some dental work prior, with some teeth removed, and maybe need to have another done again. Dandy will go for vetting in the am so we will know more medical needs then. His little walk is just so cute. He has the strut down and is just simply adorable

I've Been Adopted!

To date we've spent $2031.47 on Dandy's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $835.00 in donations.

Cody is a 1 year old, 12 pound Yorkie boy being fostered in Richmond, Virginia.

Cody has had his liver shunt surgery and is doing very well and enjoying being an active little boy!

THANK YOU TO CODY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Brenda Pierce, Cheryl Scrupski, Jan Clasen, Amy Chernault, Jessica True, Karry Rogers, Jason Wood, Dawn Gowen, Leslie Corbell, Jan Freeman, Joan Shelly, Debra Roby, Pamela Stephens, Phyllis Lewis, Barbara Rodriguez, Anna Douglas, Melanie Ortega, Sandra Wendt, Denise Scafe, Lorna Marrero, Stephanie Digman, Marianne Alicea, Diane Brand, Dawn Gowen, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Robin Renee Mack, Barbara Cain, Sharon Dees, Marie Walz, Brenda Pierce, Linda and David Rothrock

Updated bio 6-22-16 Cody’s personality is like a laid-back surfer dude. He is totally content following his people from room to room, playing and being loved on. He likes going for walks and will run around the yard​,​ but ​he ​mostly likes to chill with his people. His fur is soo soft and when it gets a little long on the forehead he reminds me of the Berenstain Bear illustrations in the children’s books. Cody best forever home would be one with another dog as a playmate but no cats. School aged children and older would also be okay.

Hi, it’s me Cody. I am so thankful to be well. I appreciate everyone who has donated to help my healing from my liver shunt surgery and my continued care. I am happy to say that my last liver check went well. It looks like I am getting better everyday. I will be due for a follow up check in six months in order to see if I need to continue my prescription diet. I am no longer on any medications and have no other medical restrictions. I like to romp, wrestle, and run around with my foster sister. I like playing with a few favorite toys but I don’t play fetch. I do very well on walks and I love visiting the children in the neighborhood and getting attention from them.

I am almost potty trained. I rarely pee on the potty pads but I use them exclusively for pooing. The special food that I am on makes it hard for me to be on a schedule for pooing yet. I am very good going pee outside in the yard when I am reminded to “go potty.” I am starting to learn “sit” though sometimes I lay down instead. I am good at being home alone for short periods of time and at night. I have a crate for when I’m left a little longer.

My foster mom wants to say just a little more about me and the cost of my care.

Cody has come such a long way since his surrender. His surgery and treatments are estimated to cost around $3000. ​United Yorkie Rescue​ is fundraising in earnest. If you are able to help us by donating towards Cody’s care we would be so very grateful.

Updated bio 6-2-16 Cody is a 1-year-old, sweet 12 lb. Yorkie young dog. He is being fostered in Richmond, Virginia.

Hi, it’s me Cody here, I am so thankful to be well. I appreciate everyone who has donated to help my healing from my liver shunt surgery and continued care. I am looking forward to my (hopefully) last visit to the dogtor next week to check my liver functions. I am no longer on any medications, though I am still eating my special food. I like to romp, wrestle, and run around with my foster sister. I like playing with a few favorite toys but I don’t play fetch. I do very well on walks and I love visiting the children in the neighborhood and getting attention from them.

I am almost potty trained. I rarely pee on the potty pads but I use them exclusively for pooing, you know, number 2. The special food that I am on makes it hard for me to be on a schedule for pooing yet, but I am learning it will just take a little longer for me. I am very good going pee outside in the yard when I am reminded to “go potty.” I am starting to learn “sit” though sometimes I lay down instead. I am good at being home alone for short periods of time and at night. I have a crate for longer periods of time.

Thanks for taking the time to learn about me. You should really put in an application for me. I will soon be able to go to my forever home. You will get the best boy ever. So just in case you forgot my name is Cody and I am a little love.

Hello, it’s Cody’s foster mom, and I have to tell you Cody is a great little love monster. He loves following his people from room to room and loves playing and being loved on. His fur is so so so soft. We are looking for a home with another dog as a playmate but no cats. School aged children and older would also be okay too.

Cody has come such a long way since his surrender. His surgery and treatments are estimated to cost around $3000. Our rescue group is fundraising in earnest. If you are able to help us by donating towards Cody’s care we would be so very grateful.

Please fill out an application if you are interested in being Cody’s forever home. We are hoping for a great last follow up visit to the vet soon.

Updated bio 4-27-16 Hi, It's me, Cody here. I am having a great time at my foster home. I had my liver shunt surgery almost 6 weeks ago. Thank you to everyone who has donated and supported me to make me better! I just went to the dogtor and I have gained two pounds in the past two months. We are waiting to hear back about my liver test results so that I can be adopted. Until we hear back, I am still on antibiotics, medication, and special food.

I really like to romp around, wrestle, and play with my foster sister. I truly enjoy playing and running around with my foster sister. I am still learning to play with toys. I don’t play fetch yet, but I sure do like to run around in the yard. I don’t pull on the leash when we go for walks. My foster mom got me a handsome new nylon strap harness that doesn’t matt up my super soft fur.

Now that I have my energy back I can be mischievous. I try to get into trash cans and I broke into the treat storage once and helped myself to a snack. Some very special ladies sent me an awesome blanket that goes great when I am watching movies or Netflix with my people. I insist on following my people around the house and yard no matter what they are up to. My foster sister and I both sleep together on the dog bed or sofa overnight. This way I can get to the puppy pads in my puppy pen and crate. I did not react very well when I encountered cats while we have been out in the neighborhood and at the vet office. So I think I better not go to a house with cats. I do get along well with kids. I really want to find a forever home with another dog friend because I love to play so much.

Now my foster mommy wants to tell you just little about me.

Cody is a very sweet boy who has come a very long way. We are hoping that Cody will be ready to be adopted soon. His surgery and treatments will cost United Yorkie Rescue around $3000. If you are able to help us by donating towards Cody’s care we would be so very grateful. It is only with the help of our rescue angels that we can continue to help dogs like Cody get the care they need to continue to live a long and healthily life.

Updated Bio 3/24/2016 Cody had his Liver Shunt Surgery this week. He spent two nights in the hospital and has now been released and is now recovering in his foster home. His surgeon is very optimistic that Cody's Liver Shunt surgery was a success. For now, Cody is confined to a cone so that he will not disturb the very long incision that was necessary to perform his surgery. He must be kept calm and have very limited activity and can only go outside for potty breaks on a leash in the yard. Cody is still on several medications including Lactulose, an antibiotic, anti-seizure medications and two medications for pain. He has a follow up visit in two weeks to have his sutures removed and hopeful he will also get to leave his cone behind. While we are very hopeful, Cody still isn't out of the woods and we are still paying for the care he has already received. If you have donated to Cody's care, Thank You so very much. Please share his story with others so we can keep his story alive and hopefully others will be inspired to donate. If you have not yet donated, it would be very much appreciated. You can donate towards his care by visiting his You Caring Fundraiser page at Cody's Fund Raiser

Updated bio 3-4-6 Hi, it’s me Cody here. I am having a great time at my foster home. In three more weeks I will be having my liver shunt surgery. I have a lot more energy and good days now that I am on antibiotics, medication, and special food. I am a young pup who has no idea that I should be sick. I like to romp around, wrestle, and play with my foster sister and my real fur sister Charley. I only play with toys if Charley is playing with them.

I like to run around in the yard, and I don’t pull on the leash when we go for walks. Charley Girl won’t let me keep my collar on; she undoes the buckle all the time. I have gotten used to sporting my vest, though. It’s a very stylish size small harness.

I am not potty trained. My condition means that I drink a lot of water and my special food makes my poo soft. I try to go when we go out and I usually listen when my foster mom tells me to “go potty.” I do have puppy pads to use as backup. My foster family will continue to work with me on good habits and bellybands after my life saving surgery.

Now that I have my energy back I can be mischievous. I try to get into trashcans and I broke into the treat storage once and helped myself to a snack. Can you believe how smart I am, and very cute, buy the way.

Because of my liver shunt, I tire out easily and love to snuggle when I nap. The ladies at FABB sent me an awesome blanket that goes great when I am watching movies or Netflix with my people. I insist on cuddling with a person when I am not feeling well. I get along great with my “sister” Charley and my foster sister but sometimes we roughhouse a little too much. We all sleep together on the dog bed or sofa overnight while I have access to the puppy pads in my puppy pen and crate. I do not react well when I have encountered cats while we have been out in the neighborhood and at the veterinary office. I hope to find a forever home with another dog friend and no cats.

Cody’s foster mom says that Cody is a very sweet boy who has a long road ahead of him. Cody will not be ready for adoption for some time. His surgery and treatments are estimated to cost around $3000. Our rescue group is fundraising in earnest. If you are able to help us by donating towards Cody’s care we would be so very grateful. Every little bit will help us help Cody live a long and healthy life. Without the surgery Cody will not have that option.

Initial Bio 2/16/2016 Cody came to us from an owner who could no longer afford his care because Cody has just been diagnosed with a liver shunt. This is a very serious and life-threatening condition that requires extensive treatment, most usually in the form of very expensive surgery. United Yorkie Rescue of course accepted Cody into rescue and has already begun the process of getting him the care he needs. His diagnostic evaluation is complete and he will consult with a specialist early next week. He will almost certainly be scheduled for surgery soon afterwards. For now, Cody is on medication, special prescription food and receiving lots of TLC in his foster home. He is a very sweet boy who has a long road ahead of him. Cody will not be ready for adoption for some time. If approved for surgery, the estimated cost will be around $3000. If you are able to help us by donating towards Cody’s care we would be so very grateful.

Muffin
Tongue Out Muffin
Virginia
Muffin

Muffin is a Yorkie mix female, estimated to be 3-4 years old, weighs 15 pounds and resides in Richmond, VA

Initial Bio 7/15/16

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

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

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

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

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

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


To date we've spent $69.00 on Muffin's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Gizmo
Wisconsin
Gizmo

Gizmo is a 17 month old, 5.3 pound, male Yorkie/Maltese mix residing near Madison, WI.

THANK YOU TO GIZMO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Kersten Weber

Initial Bio 07/15/16 Gizmo was surrendered because he kept escaping from his home and running around the neighborhood, risking being hit by a car. He is a very fast little boy who will definitely need a fenced in yard and gates to prevent him from sneaking out any doorways that are opened. He is a very active puppy who loves to run and play with his toys and play "chase me". He is also affectionate with his people. Because he tends to be excitable, a home with no young children would be best. Stay tuned as we learn more about this adorable little boy.


To date we've spent $109.48 on Gizmo's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $20.00 in donations.

Gracie
Wisconsin
Gracie

Gracie is a 4 year old, 10 pound Yorkie female who is being fostered in Madison, WI

Update Bio: Gracie is doing very well and ready to go to her furever home! Her personality is coming out more and more each day. She remains super sweet and loves her people! Gracie is a barker and prefers to be the watch dog in the house. She loves to play with others, but will need to be with dogs that are about her same size (10 pounds) as she can get a bit rough. Gracie is a dominant dog who will need someone who is able to be "top dog" around her to be sure she does not get away with being naughty! She loves being outside and seldom has accidents in the house. If you think your home is the best for sweet Gracie, please fill out an application. She will not last long!!

06/17/16: Meet Gracie! She comes to UYR from a very loving home and owner who is now dealing with some health concerns that prevented them from giving Gracie all the loving she deserves. Right now Gracie is a bit sad having lost the home she had since she was a puppy. She appears to be house trained and is very shy at this point. She loves to snuggle and is content right now to watch the other dogs and take her cue from them. Her owners shared that she will alert everyone when there is something going on outside or if someone comes to the house. So far, I have not seen that behavior. Gracie has never been crated and is used to being free in the house. Gracie is a sweetheart who is looking for someone who can spoil her with LOTS of love and attention! Please check back in a few days as we get to know her more!

To date we've spent $25.51 on Gracie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Taff
Wisconsin
Taff

Taff is an 8 year old, 5 pound Yorkie boy residing in Wisconsin.

Initial Bio: 07/01/16 Taff (aka Taffi) is an 8 year old, neutered Yorkie from Illinois who was surrendered by his family due to recent financial changes. Taff is 5#s and a complete little love. He is getting along GREAT with the canine and human siblings in the house. Taff is up to date on his vaccines, and his teeth were cleaned earlier this year. Taff previously lived with a cat sibling, and apparently they taunted each other from time to time, but generally tolerated each other. Taff walks on leash like a little gentleman, and has consistently gone potty outside rather than in the house. He navigates stairs very well. Although he has only been in the foster home for 24 hours, I can already state that Taff is absolutely one of the sweetest dogs I've ever met. He is so very loving (gives lots of kisses), and is such a cute little bundle with the softest hair. He shows no sign of slowing down, still romping around like a puppy even though he is 8 years old. Taff was surrendered with a large metal pen, his bed and a pillow that he likes to lay on. We have not set the pen up yet, but all these items will go to his adoptive family. Potential adopters must commit to using a harness rather than a collar. Collars on small dogs can cause throat damage, and Taff is definitely a smaller Yorkie. We will also require that the adoptive family use high quality food for Taff. Taff is in great health, and we would like him to maintain his great health via appropriate food choices. Yorkies can live to higher ages (17 to 18 years old) so we ask that you consider that Taff has a long life ahead of him. Taff is used to one family, and we wish to ensure that his next home is truly his forever home.


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

Tobie
Wisconsin
Tobie

Welcome Tobie, a sweet 5 pound, 5 year old Yorkie girl who is being fostered in Green Bay, WI. Toby does not like to share her person with other dogs and needs to be an only dog in the family.

THANK YOU TO TOBIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Irene and Peter Havas in memory of Buddy and Vanessa, Christine Dwyer

Update Bio: Hello everyone; its me Tobie. Well i have been at my foster famiily for almost a month now, and it has been a very busy time. Doctor checkups, vaccines, spay, dental work and my latest adventure Camping!!!! That was so much fun. I got to go for long walks. I am such a good walker and get very excited when they bring out my leash. I do a little dance in circles every time. I did chase two little girls on bikes, causing my foster mom to almost have a heart attack because i can't hear, and she could not call me to come back. Thank goodness for the the two little girls because they stopped, and I did. too. My foster mom said she would not have blamed them if they would have kept riding for ever with me on their tails because i was yapping so loud. We never did see those little girls again i think they found a different place to ride bikes afterwards. So after that i had to stay on a leash. I barked at every bike I saw, which my foster mom says is something i need to get over Otherwise i was a very good girl during our camping trip. I slept really good I want to do it again, soon. Here's my mom with a few important facts about me

Hello every one! Here are some important things you need to know about Tobie that we have learned and a few important things and are learning about her every day.

1. I am a sweatheart and love, love, love to snuggle! Anyone who adopts her must have the time for snuggles. 100% of the day would be awesome, but i know is unreasonable.

2. I am 75% potty trained but need to be watched since i don't let anyone know when i have to go. Pooping is a big problem because all of a sudden, i just squat and go. Like it almost like it sneaks up on me.

3. I do suffer from separation anxiety. While it has gotten a little bit better, I do have to follow my mom everywhere she goes. If she closes a door behind her, I am sure to cry. Being left home for long periods of time would be extremely detrimental to me.. However, on the same note I can never ever be put in a crate or kennel

4. I love my human so much that I can't be in a house where there is another dog. I just want to be the only one with my humans. No sharing for me.

5. I really, really like to go for Bye byes in the car, and I like to go for walks. I get super excited when I see my leash.

6. Here's a summary: I love walks, love to go places, and I want to be the only fur baby, no other pets in the house for me please. I must be the only fur baby I need a family that has lots and lots of time for me. Potty training is almost complete.I am super cute, love to cuddle, and just want somebody who's gonna love me forever and spoil, spoil, spoil me!

Any questions please feel free to email me the foster mom. At. Quietcourt2@yahoo.co

Update 6/17/16: Hello everyone it me Tobie's foster mommy. She can't talk right now as she is a little under the weather today. Yesterday she had her spay and dental done. Ten teeth were removed due to dental disease but once that heals she will be just fine since she still has 22 teeth left mostly on the bottom and front. Soft food will probably be her food of choice as her molars are gone. Her spay went well. She is not feeling the best today but I have all day for snuggles which is the best medicine for her right now. Hopefully in a couple of days she'll be back to her cute little self. She has been through a lot this week....new home, vaccinations, spay, dental. The only thing left is to rest...relax and get tons of kisses, hugs and snuggles. One thing we have learned is that Tobie prefers to be with people all the time. She doesn't like being left alone and will cry. She doesn't do any damage but is clearly not happy when her people leave her alone in a room. So the best choice for her new family is someone who is home most of the time so she doesn't feel lonely.

Initial Bio 6/13/16: Hello everyone, please welcome little Tobie as UYR's newest foster pup. Several years ago she was found as a stray by some very kind people who brought her to the Animal Welfare League in their community. Tobie did not have a micro-chip or any identification. She was put on a stray hold in the hopes her owners might reclaim her. Sadly no one did, so the people who found her came and adopted Tobie and took her into their family. Unfortunately the circumstances in their lives have changed, so they asked UYR if we would take her in and help find a loving forever home for her. While this has broken their hearts foster mom has promised to do just that!!!!

This morning Tobie had a vet appointment. She had all her vaccinations updated and a complete physical. She is heartworm negative and will be having a spay and dental on this Thursday, June 16. Several extractions will be done. Tobie also had an ingrown toe nail that caused infection in her paw and she is now on an antibiotic for the next seven days to take care of the infection. She also has moderate luxating patellas on both knees that don't appear to affect her in the least.

One more thing that I should mention other than her being totally lovable and cuddly, is that she is also hearing-impaired and completely deaf. But that will not stop her from living a very good, happy life!!

Please stay tuned for further updates as we get to know the sweetheart further. If you think Tobie would be a good fit for your family please complete an adoption application at www.uyr.us. If you have any questions, please feel free to email the foster mom at Quietcourt2@yahoo.com
