Banjo

Banjo is a little Yorkie boy. He is 12 years old and weighs 5.5 lbs. He is being fostered in Zephyrhills, FL.

THANK YOU TO BANJO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Irene and Peter Havas in memory of darling Happy

UPDATED BIO 10/17/2019: Banjo is an adorable and sweet senior fella who found himself homeless and sitting all alone at an area animal shelter. Fast Forward – he has been in his foster home for one week now and is doing very well.

Foster mom reports that Banjo in house-trained – BONUS! He will let her know when he needs to go out to potty and when he thinks it is time to eat. Banjo loves going on walks and enjoys car rides. He especially loves cuddling on the couch next to his foster parents and sleeping in bed with them. Sweet.

Banjo had a recent vet appointment and everything checked out great. He needed a dental cleaning, and lost a few teeth, but otherwise he is a healthy little boy. He has been on an antibiotic for the horrible infection in his mouth, and since his dental, he feels so much better. Banjo gets along with both the cats and other dogs in the foster home, so he would do well either as an only dog, or with another dog close to his size and age.

Banjo does not like being crated – that makes him very sad. Banjo has let his foster mom know that he would like his furever home to be with a retired or stay-at-home individual or couple since he loves human companionship and also loves attention. PLEASE NOTE: Due to his small size, Banjo cannot be adopted into a home with children under the age of 14 years old.

This adorable little fella has a lot of life left to live and a ton of love to give. Don't turn away from Banjo because of his age - like senior people, senior doggies need love, too!

INITIAL BIO 10/10/2019: MEET BANJO! He is an adorable and sweet senior fella who found himself homeless and at an area animal shelter. The staff there recognized that he really needed to be out of the shelter, and reached out to UYR to see if we could pull him. Of course we said YES! His foster mom immediately went to the shelter to scoop him up into her arms and bring him to his new foster home. Banjo stayed in his foster home during his stray period; however no one came to claim this precious boy so it's official - Banjo is in our Foster Care Program.

In his foster home, he had a bed and toys waiting and has received lots of love during the stray hold. Banjo has only been in his foster home for a few days, and there is much more to find out about this little nugget, so stay tuned as we get to know him better. He would be a perfect doggie companion to a retired couple and has a lot of life left to live and a ton of love to give. Don't turn away from Banjo because of his age - like senior people, senior doggies need love, too!

Adoption Pending

To date we've spent $496.46 on Banjo's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $20.00 in donations.

Boba Lou

This adorable puppy is Boba Lou. He is 11 months old and weighs in at only 6.3 pounds. This cute little Yorkie Mix is being fostered in Punta Gorda, FL.

THANK YOU TO BOBA LOU'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Lacey Ballard

INITIAL BIO 11/06/2019: Meet little Boba Lou. This little Yorkie mix boy is so full of life and love that he is having trouble learning some of his doggie manners. His former home was full of kids and activity and there was Boba Lou right in the middle of it.

Boba Lou is young, and like a puppy will do, he wants to play with every dog and cat he meets and unfortunately not every dog or cat wants to play with him. With so much going on in his former home, he had trouble figuring out where to do his business and thought the house was as good as any other place. With no one home most of the day, poor little Boba Lou had to be crated, and such a young small dog just couldn’t hold everything in and would mess in his crate. By the time everyone came home he was so happy to see them he couldn’t contain his excitement and would run all around the fenced backyard. When he finally settled down, he would come back inside and then decide it was time to do his business.

Boba Lou’s former owners tried everything they could to get him to learn proper doggie manners, but with so much going on and no one home all day, he couldn’t concentrate on what he needed to do. They knew he needed a calmer, quieter environment where he would get the attention he needed. Boba Lou would do best in a home with someone home most of the day who can take him out often. Someone who would understand he is still very young. He needs a patient, kind person to help him learn what he needs to learn to be a well-behaved little boy. He would love a fenced yard to run around in and an opportunity to play with other young active pups.

Boba Lou is loving and cuddly and loves everyone. He loves to curl up on your lap and stay there! He plays with his toys and loves to go for walks up and down the street! He just needs a little reinforcement on house house-training, but he is smart and is quickly catching on where he is supposed to do his business – and where he is not lol!

Boba Lou would be fine with kids over the age of 12, but no younger due to his small size. He also needs a family that can promise him a lifetime commitment of being there for him for his lifetime of maybe 15 or more years. Boba Lou needs one final home to call his forever home and one final family to be his forever family. If you have the time and patience, as well as the love to give this sweet boy, please fill out an adoption application for him. Boba Lou will be having his spa day soon. Wait until you see this beautiful puppy boy so come back soon for the big reveal.


To date we've spent $48.00 on Boba Lou's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $73.00 in donations.

I am a happy girlie in my foster home. Before Grooming

CoCo FL

CoCo is a yorkie/silky/poodle mix sweetheart who is 9 years old and weighs a chubby 17 lbs. Sweet CoCo is being fostered in Dunedin, FL.

THANK YOU TO COCO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Janet Hart, Samantha Jones, Samantha Jones, Samantha Jones, Samantha Jones, Samantha Jones, Samantha Jones, Erika Versace

UPDATED BIO 11/18/2019: CoCo here. I wanted to let everybody know some things about me. I love my foster mommy and daddy and all my four-legged foster friends. Really, I do. But ….. I really want a family to call my own. I don’t know why I haven’t found my purfect home yet, because I’m such a sweet girl - at least foster mom says so and I believe her. I get along great with other dogs, older kids (12 and over), and heck - I even get along with the cat!!

I’m not real used to walking on a leash, but foster mom says I’m getting much better at it. I still want to tug a little so I can smell things along the way, but I’m working on that. I love, love, love to play with my foster siblings, so the perfect home for me would have another laid-back, playful doggie. When I play, sometimes I like to bolt through the house really fast, so I need to have some room to do that. I’m also really good at just chilling on the chair next to my foster family. I’m just a quiet young lady who loves to be a snuggle bug.

When the nice lady came to pick me up from that awful shelter, I was kind of a mess. I had a yeast infection on most of my body. My ears were infected really bad, and to be honest, I didn’t think I’d ever get out of there. I couldn’t be adopted right away because I needed a lot of medicine and baths, so that’s why United Yorkie Rescue stepped in. Whew…. now, I’m no longer itchy and my hair is growing back, and the really good news is that I didn’t lose any hearing from my bad ear infection.

Okay, here’s the really serious part. I started having seizures at my foster family’s home shortly after I got there. Because they weren’t that frequent, the vet decided that I didn’t have to take medicine - yet. But then I had another one, so I had to start taking seizure meds. I love to take my pills, because they taste like Braunschweiger (liverwurst). Hey, wait a minute! You mean there’s pills in my treats?!

Whoops, back to the serious stuff. I had one seizure on my medicine and now I just take a little bit more of it, and I haven’t had a seizure since September 15th. So far, my yummy medicine is working. I’ll always be on the medicine, which costs about $11 a month. It hasn’t caused me any problems, so I’m really happy about that.

Oh – one more thing. I’m also working on my manners with going potty in the house. As long as I go out often enough, I prefer to do my business outside. I’m just not sure how to tell you I need to go, but I’m trying to figure out that part. It would be good for me to have a home where there is one stay-at-home parent to take me out frequently. Foster mom said that I was a bit too “fluffy” so I am on a food now that doesn’t have as many calories in it so that I can get my girlie figure back. Now that you know everything about me, why don’t you fill out an application and tell me about you and see if we’re a match!?

As always, if you can’t adopt, please consider donating to the wonderful rescue group that saved me and so many others every day. Even though I’m doing better, I still have many brothers and sisters out there that need help, too. Can you do it for me - for us…Please donate. And don’t forget. Adopt. Don’t Shop.

UPDATED BIO 10/02/2019: CoCo is a sweet, adorable 9 year young dog who still thinks she is a puppy! Our little Miss CoCo is always ready for a little romping around and playing, just like a little puppy would be. She is almost healed from her severe yeast skin infection, as well as her equally severe ear infection. It is possible that she may continue to need regular baths with a medicated shampoo. She just finished her last pill for her skin issues, as well as an injection (Cytopoint) to stop the itching, so it’s uncertain if she will need to continue with either of them - only time will tell. The protocol is to give one injection of Cytopoint and then repeat in 4 weeks. If CoCo does require the Cytopoint for the rest of her life, the cost is approximately $60/injection and will only have to be administered every 6-8 weeks.

Since CoCo’s last update, unfortunately she had 3 more seizures, and is now on a twice daily medication (phenobarbital), and will be on this for the rest of her life. Since starting on her seizure medication (September 15), she has not had any more seizures. The monthly cost of the Phenobarbital for the seizures is approximately $31 per month.

Now onto the wonderful things about CoCo! She is a very, very sweet young lady who loves to lay close to her foster mom and gladly welcomes any petting she can get. She hasn’t slept in bed with foster parents, but is very comfortable finding a place to snuggle up close by. She gets along great with all of her (7) other four-legged siblings, including the cat. She does very well while getting a bath, and afterward, runs back and forth through the house like a little kid. She loves her toys and will sometimes entertain herself with one of her toys all by herself.

She is very good about taking her medicine, as it is hidden in a treat that she loves. We are working on her house-training, but she is a smart little girlie and will eventually get it. She will need repetition and frequent trips outside in her new home, as well as a patient and understanding adoptyer. CoCo will go potty as soon as you let her outside, but still has accidents inside.

If you think you could love CoCo and get all your love returned in kind, then fill out an application and let’s see if you’re a match!

UPDATED BIO 08/31/2019: CoCo has really opened up in her foster home – little by little, and is now showing her foster parents what her adoption needs are. She gets along great with the other dogs. She has met the kitty cat, and shows no signs of aggression towards her at all. CoCo loves to play with one of her foster siblings running through the house full speed ahead! She also loves to get her toy, throw it up in the air and chase after it. When she gets excited, like when foster mom or dad come home, she runs through the house bouncing around like a puppy. She is a very active 9 year old sweetheart.

CoCo rides well in the car, whether she is in her crate or wearing her harness and safety leash. CoCo is learning her manners inasfar as house-training, but because she’s on medicine that increases her need to go more often, it’s hard to tell how she is doing. She still has accidents in the house, but also knows to go while outside. Her foster parents are working with her on this.

CoCo’s prior skin and ear infections continue to get better every day. She has a re-check coming up soon to see if she’s ready to discontinue her medicine regimen, which also includes medicated baths. CoCo has had one seizure since coming into foster care 6 weeks ago . It is believed that this was an isolated seizure and does not require medication at this time. However, it she does have any further seizures while in foster care, she will likely be put on anti-seizure medication.

Because of CoCo’s playful personality, she needs a home with at least one other playful dog. The age of the other dog isn’t so important as long as (s)he wants to romp around a little with CoCo. She also needs a bigger home to be able to run through while playing. She would not be happy in a confined space, such as an apartment or condo. Children older than 10 years old would be okay.

UPDATED BIO 07/25/2019: This sweet girl arrived in United Yorkie Rescue recently from a high-kill shelter. CoCo was a loving and loyal companion all her life to her former owners, and when she became older and needed veterinary care, her previous owner did everything she could to try to help CoCo, and when she was unable to do more, she sadly relinquished CoCo to the shelter.

CoCo has been in her foster home for only a couple of days, but has proven herself to be quite a sweetheart. She was good in her crate on the ride home. She allowed Foster Mom to bathe her without any trouble. She gets along great with other dogs, although she doesn’t yet mingle with them too much, but when she does, there’s absolutely not a hint of trouble. And she hasn’t had any issues with the cat. She has had a very rough life for a while before she came into foster care, and yet she still loves to be petted and loved on.

CoCo has already been seen by the vet, and what we learned is that she does have a pretty bad yeast infection on a fairly large portion of her body. She also has severe ear infections, which is likely causing her to be a little hearing-impaired, and hopefully that will resolve itself once the infection heals. CoCo will be getting medicated baths every other night, as well as several medications for her yeast infection, along with an ear cleaner and medicated drops for her ears. The vet thinks that her skin condition will clear up, but that she will likely have dark pigmented skin where the horrible yeast infection had been untreated for a long period of time. Luckily, it’s not in places that you would normally see, and her cute little curls will still be adorable.

CoCo was an absolute angel while getting her ears cleaned and her other vet care – sweet girlie! It should be noted that even though she was turned into the shelter with a history of “epilepsy”, she has NOT had any seizures both at the facility, or in her foster home.

We’re still learning a lot about our adorable sweet girl, so check back for updates on her. We are currently accepting applications for her, but she can’t be adopted until she is done with all of her medical care.

INITIAL BIO 07/23/2019: This sweet girl arrived in United Yorkie Rescue today from a high-kill shelter. CoCo was a loving and loyal companion all her life to her former owners, and once she became older and needed veterinary care, she was dumped at the shelter - heartbreaking! It is believed that she is house-trained and likes all people.

The former owners told the shelter that she had a seizure disorder; however, no seizure activity was ever observed during the 9 days she was at the shelter. CoCo does have evidence of chronic skin changes and otitis and also has moderate dental disease, consistent with her breed and age. She will see the vet tomorrow, so please stay tuned for more information on CoCo.

Daisy Mae

Daisy Mae is an adorable 6 month old, 8 pound Yorkie puppy girl being fostered in Leesburg, FL.

THANK YOU TO DAISY MAE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Karry Rogers, Jane St. John, Sandy Pagnotta, Jeanette Howell, Dawn Dion, Maureen McCosker, Robin Nyberg, Mary Whitaker, Barbara Burgess, Irene and Peter Havas in memory of darling Happy, Holly Keller, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Sandy Pagnotta, Brandy Swanson, Ilene Rand, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Mary Guimaraes, Sharon Stryszyk

UPDATED BIO 10/20/2019: Hello. It’s me - your favorite puppy friend, Daisy Mae. I had my big liver shunt surgery last month and did my 4 weeks of restricted activity to let it heal. It felt like I was in jail and no one cared that I wanted to get out. Finally, I was released on account of my good behavior. I am such a good puppy. Okay, the truth is I don’t always have good behavior, but my foster mom and dad said my 4 weeks were up and I was free to run and play and have fun again. Sometimes I have so much fun I get into a little trouble like tearing up the toilet paper and chewing on the doggie toy box. Oh - and shoes and socks. I love shoes and socks and if they are in my reach I make them mine.

My foster parents think I am the sweetest puppy ever, but they don’t always appreciate my kind of fun. What do they expect? I am a puppy after all. The most fun I have is when I play with the other young doggie in the house. We wrestle each other, we run around in the backyard after each other and we have the best times ever. I like to play fetch the toy or the ball with my people too. The other dogs don’t like to play with me much. They do more resting than I like to do. My foster mom said that is because they’re older and older dogs like to rest a lot. Well, sometime I like to rest too, and now I get to rest on the big bed with everyone. I used to have to sleep in a little kennel all by myself, but I don’t have any accidents on the bed, so now I get to sleep on the big bed with everyone, and I do a good job of sleeping with everyone, too.

Besides playing, my other favorite thing is to give kisses to my foster mom and dad and everyone else. I can give kisses and more kisses all day long. I love everyone I meet and they love me. I am not happy when my people leave the house even though I have other doggie friends in my foster home. I just love people so much. Here is another thing; my foster mom and dad said I am the best eater ever. I win the golden doggie bowl award every day. I am still eating my special food for liver shunt dogs.

On November 14th I go to see the nice doctor who did my big operation. He will give me a test, they call it a bile acids test. If I pass it then I can slowly get to eat the regular food like the other pups in the house. So fingers crossed I pass my test. After my test my foster mom said she will know what I will need in my forever home and we can start finding me the perfect one.

Here is my list for my perfect forever home – pay attention! I would love another young dog about my size to play with. I can sort of walk on a leash okay, but I don’t love that so much. So if you have a fenced yard for me I would like that even more. I sure would like a mom or dad who can be home a lot of the time with me. As much as I love other dogs, I really want to be with people too because I love people so much. Also, I am still learning doggie manners like house training. I need someone with patience and understanding to continue helping me learn my good doggie manners.

My foster mom thinks by the time I am full grown I might be around 9 pounds or even a little more. I would be the perfect size for a family with well-behaved kids maybe 9 or 10 years old and older.

My foster mom said that since we won’t know what kind of forever home I need until my test in November, she can’t consider any applications until my results come back. So please wait until then. If you already love me and can’t wait to make me your forever little girl, you can put in an application now. She said she will hold your application in my file, and when it’s time we will consider all the applications and look at them together until we find the most perfect family for the most perfect puppy. ME!

Here’s one more very important thing. The wonderful people at United Yorkie Rescue, who saved me, said if you want to help pay for my expensive surgery please make a donation. My foster mom said every single penny helps. Just look at my sweet puppy face, don’t you think I was worth saving? Please be an angel and make a donation. THANK YOU!

UPDATED BIO 09/22/2019: Daisy Mae had her liver shunt surgery. Her surgeon was able to successfully place the ameroid ring constrictor to start the process of it slowly closing the shunt over the next 8 weeks.

This sweet, loving active puppy is not a happy girl in the recuperation process. She has to be either crated or restrained for the next 4 weeks while the shunt continues to close and her big surgery heals. Daisy only wants to run around and play with the other dogs, but she can’t and so she sits sadly in her crate watching them, or she is leashed on to her foster mom and dad’s bed. This way she can at least be near her foster mom and dad at night and the other dogs when they hang out on the bed during the day.

Daisy loves to give kisses and will kiss anyone she is close enough to reach. She is happy when she can get out into the backyard, even though she is on a leash, and walk around for a little while to do her business. She is the happiest, most loving little puppy who truly deserved this surgery.

In 8 weeks (November 14th), Daisy will go back to the surgeon for her follow up bile acids test. If all goes well and her levels are normal, over the following 3 to 4 weeks, she can slowly be transitioned from the prescription food to regular dog food.

Daisy won’t be ready for her forever home until at least mid-December or even the end of December depending on how quickly she handles her recovery and the transition to the food. At this time we are not considering any applications until we know what her bile acids test show on her follow-up visit on 11/14.

Daisy’s surgery was expensive, but it has given her the chance for a healthy, long life. Please make a donation to Daisy Mae to help United Yorkie Rescue pay for her much needed surgery. It is only with your help that we can help puppies like Daisy Mae and all the other dogs who so badly need our help to live. Thank you.

UPDATED BIO 09/01/2019: Darling little Daisy Mae, our sweet liver shunt puppy, is scheduled for her shunt surgery September 16th. Currently she is only being fed a low-protein diet with the special Rx food designed for liver care. Even her treats are special low-protein treats. She loves her food and will gobble it all up. Daisy eats separately from the other dogs to ensure she doesn’t eat anything but her special food.

Daisy was doing great on the special diet; but as often happens with liver shunt dogs, she recently had a little set-back. She became lethargic, didn’t eat all day and had a bad case of diarrhea. Daisy’s foster mom called the surgeon and told him what was going on with her. Her surgeon said that this is something that is common with liver shunt dogs. He said to give her some Nutri-Cal oral gel, which would provide her with some energy, and to reduce the amount of her food until she was feeling better. He suggested taking her to the vet and have her checked to make sure she was okay – this was done as a precaution and Daisy was doing good. She was given some anti-diarrhea meds and within a day Daisy Mae was her normal, acting-like-a-puppy self again.

Daisy is such a sweet, happy puppy. We are hoping that when she gets her surgery, there will be only one shunt that can surgically be closed with the constrictor. It takes the constrictor several weeks to slowly close the shunt, but after that she will be a healthy, active puppy who will have many years ahead of her. If there are multiple shunts, there is no way to constrict them. If that is the case, Daisy will be on the special food for life, and although she will have years left, she most likely won’t have as many years and as many healthy years as a dog who was able to have the liver shunt surgery. We will all know more on September 16th.

Daisy had her first official grooming and did really well for a puppy having the first grooming of her life. She was not perfect, but she tolerated it. The only thing she hated was having all the hair that was growing in her ears plucked out. She didn’t understand how important that is to keeping her ears healthy and infection-free. Even though she fussed and whined throughout her grooming, after it was all over she gave her groomer lots of love and kisses.

Daisy loves everyone. It doesn’t matter if she hasn’t seen her foster mom or dad for 5 minutes or 5 hours, she still gives them kisses galore. She really likes sleeping with her foster mom and dad, and if she wakes up in the night, she has to give them non-stop kisses until they let her know it’s enough and time to go back to sleep.

Daisy enjoys playing with toys and chewing on the nylabones. She will go to the doggie toy box and pick out the toy she is interested in - for the moment. When she is tired of her chosen toy, she will go find another. She has learned how to climb up and down the doggie steps to the bed and has made herself at home with the other dogs in her foster home. She loves people, she loves the other dogs, she is just full of love and life for everything and everyone.

Daisy is still learning her house-training manners. She will go outside, but she will still go inside, too. Her foster parents are working on this, but it is possible she will not be totally house-trained by the time she is ready for her forever home. Daisy still has 5-6 months of growing to do. Currently she is 6.5 pounds but may end up being an 8-10 pound girlie. Yorkies grow until they are 10 months old so it is hard to know how big she will get when she is fully-grown.

Daisy will not be ready for her forever home for at least 2 to 3 months. She will need 4-6 weeks to recover from her surgery, and if the shunt surgery is successful, she will then require at least another 4-5 weeks to transition from the Rx food to regular dog food. Applications will not be considered until we know how the surgery went and what the future holds for her. Any applications that are submitted before then will be held in her file to be considered when we know what kind of a forever home she will need.

Daisy’s surgery will be expensive. Donations would be so appreciated and you will receive a special thank you for Daisy. Without the help of our rescue angels, we would not be able to save dogs like Daisy and the many others we save and the many, many more that still need saving. Every dollar helps, there is no donation too small and our appreciation will be huge.

INITIAL BIO 08/17/2019: Sweet Daisy Mae has a Liver Shunt and will need expensive surgery in order to survive. This little puppy is ready to give kisses to everyone. She likes to be with her foster mom and dad, but also is keeping herself busy getting to know her new home, backyard and fur friends. She seems to be okay in her doggie crate, though she would rather be with her foster

Daisy Mae will need to remain in her foster home most likely for 3 months. No applications will be considered until after her surgery and subsequent follow-up. The surgery will ensure that the ameroid constrictor (which slowly closes the shunt) was successfully placed. At the follow-up exam 4-6 weeks after the surgery, we then may know if her constrictor fully closed her shunt. Any applications received will be kept in a file to be considered when we know she is ready for adoption.

Daisy Mae's surgery will be expensive. This life-saving surgery will ensure that Daisy Mae will live a long, healthy life. Please help us help this little puppy to have the life she deserves. If surgery will give her that life, then let's make sure she gets it. Please donate.

I was so sad at the shelter. I am happy I was rescued.
Florida
Delilah

MEET DELILAH. Delilah is a cute little yorkie who is 10 years old and weighs 10.7 lbs. Delilah is being fostered in Orlando, FL

UPDATED BIO 11/19/2019: Hey ya'll - Delilah here. I arrived in my new foster home this past Saturday. The very next day I was invited to this wild and crazy fun-filled shindig with lots of other foster moms and dads. Wow, so many people and even more UYR doggies. I had a great time and met lots of other doggies and people, too. Everybody thought I was beautiful – just sayin’ ………

Before I was sprung out of the shelter, I somehow found myself on the streets. I was taken to Animal Control where they determined that I needed medical help, so they contacted UYR and quicker than a speeding bullet, I was outta there. I'm so happy to be off the streets and have a nice warm bed and really good food to eat. Oh, and a foster mom that loves me and lets me know that I am safe and will never ever be on the streets again.

My foster mom took me to the dogtor yesterday. I was examined, x-rayed and had blood drawn. Yikes! The dogtor says I have three mammary tumors, one as big as a golf ball. So, I'll need to have an expensive surgery. I will also be spayed and have my teeth cleaned at the same time.

Here's what else the dogtor said. I'm a little too thin at 10.7 lbs, so I need to gain a little bit of weight, maybe a half pound to be a healthier weight. My eyes are hazy from being 10 years old, but I do not have cataracts. I have lenticular sclerosis, which is a bluish transparent haze that develops in the lens of the eye in middle-aged to senior dogs. Did you know this happens to senior people, too? This is considered a normal change in the lens associated with aging, so no big deal. My vision may be a little bit impaired, but I see well enough to get around without difficulty. Sometimes, I don't see a hand coming towards me to giving me a pat, and it startles me. It's best to let me sniff the back of your hand first or call my name.

Here’s some wonderful things about me …… my foster mom says I'm a very good girl. I usually let her know when I need to go outside. I'm perfect riding in the car and I walk well on a leash. I am not a barker. I am a pretty good eater. I like to be held, or lie in your lap or be in my bed near you. Do you get my gist? In other words, I love to be with my person all the time. Oh, my foster mom says I snore – who knew? I like other small doggies, but the big ones are kinda scary to me. My foster mom doesn't know if I like cats or not.

My perfect home will have at least one stay-at-home parent. I don't like to be alone for long periods of time. Oh, and I need to let you know this too - No children, please. Foster mom asked me to let you know that if you would like to help with my surgery expenses, please click in the PayPal donation link below. If you donate to me, then that means UYR will continue to be able to take in other little needy doggies like me. Cool, huh?

INITIAL BIO 11/16/2019: Delilah just arrived in United Yorkie Rescue today - she was picked up as a stray and brought to animal control. We don't have any history on Delilah but this sweet girl is in need of some medical intervention. She has two huge mammary masses, dry flaky skin, and some skin issues. Poor Delilah was matted and unkempt so she has been neglected for a while. The good news is that she is heartworm negative and appears to be a very nice little girl who will receive lots of love in her foster home, have a clean, warm bed to sleep in and will see the vet very soon. Delilah's medial journey will be expensive, so if her story has pulled at your heartstrings, please consider donating to her vetting expenses so that UYR can continue to take in little Yorkies like Delilah.


To date we've spent $411.18 on Delilah's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $70.00 in donations.
Please donate!

I am a sweet little boy and love my brother Scooby

Can you see how much we love one another?
Florida
Harley (and Scooby Doo)

MEET HARLEY!! He is 10-1/2 years old and weighs 14 lbs. He and his brother Scooby Doo are very bonded and must be adopted together. Harley is being fostered in Palm Coast, FL.

THANK YOU TO HARLEY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Irene and Peter Havas in memory of darling Happy

UPDATED BIO 10/21/2019: Hi again from the Twins – Harley & Scooby Doo. Here’s what these precious little fellas had to say recently:

Harley & Scooby Doo here. Well, my brother and I have an interesting story, so listen up……. because we are so adorable and sweet and perfect, we did get adopted. We were sad to leave our Foster Mom, but loved our new family. But – they had a kitty cat, and both the kitty cat and the two of us decided we didn’t like one another. It was mostly the cat’s fault – that’s our story and we’re sticking to it. So now we're back looking for a new furever home – but one with NO kitty cats. We were kinda bummed to leave our new home, but we can tell you that our UYR Foster Mom Debbi was so happy-happy-happy to welcome us back with open arms and lotsa love!

Scooby Doo and I get along great with all the other doggies we have met and all the people we meet, too. We are just the most precious little boys and we are definitely bonded, and will need someone that is wanting to adopt both of us, so we can stay together!! We love car rides and also love going on walks. But the best thing ever is when Foster Mom takes us both to the store and we get to ride in the stroller. YEAH!

We also love to play fetch and run around in the fenced yard. The very best thing is we are crate-trained so we happily eat in the crate and also sleep all night in our nice comfy crates. BONUS! We are also house-trained. We are not only good-looking and sweet, but we are very smart as well.

We are both still kinda on a doggie diet since the vet thought me and my brother Scooby Doo were a little chunky. WHAT? That’s easy for the vet to say, and all we can say is Ruff! Ruff! That’s what we think about losing weight. It’s rough. But Foster Mom said we can do it and we will be able to run even faster and longer than we already do. That’s a good thing. We love being with our people, and we will promise to love you forever and ever……….

UPDATED BIO 09/02/2019: Hi from the “twins” Harley & Scooby Doo. These precious boys have been with foster mom for only a few days now but she wanted to give everyone an update on these sweet SWEET boys.

Harley and Scooby Doo are truly a bonded pair and so close they don't even want to be out of each other’s sight. Foster mom says they are joined at the hip so-to-speak. They are little snuggle bugs and love to be with their person all the time. They are getting along with all the other dogs in the home, and love their crates which they use for both meals and sleeping. Their former owner trained them to eat in their crates and they are very happy to sleep there as well – foster mom says “let’s go night-night” and they run to their crates. They are such smart little boys!

Harley and Scooby Doo are always ready to go for a walk, and they even love to take car rides just to sightsee. These little boys are so very well-mannered and just love everyone they meet. And BONUS – they are housetrained as well! Wahoo!

When they recently had their well doggie check, the vet thought both are a little overweight. Harley weighs 14 pounds and Scooby Doo weighs 8 pounds. It’s important for them to be a healthy weight, so they are now on a doggie diet and getting way more exercise as well. They love to play ball and it’s so much fun watching them running like crazy when the ball is thrown to see who can get it first lol!

Harley and Scooby Doo are current on all their vaccinations, but will see the vet soon to have a dental exam and get their microchip. Stay tuned for more information on these precious “twins”.

INITIAL BIO 08/28/2019: Harley and his brother Scooby Doo just arrived into UYR today. They were sadly surrendered by their loving owner who had them since they were puppies due to some unfortunate changes in her life. They are very bonded and need to be adopted together. Please stay tuned to learn more about these sweet boys.


To date we've spent $175.07 on Harley (and Scooby Doo)'s vet bills, but with your support we've collected $20.00 in donations.

I am pretty - so pretty!

Sweet Holly
Florida
Holly

Holly is 10 years old and weighs 9 lbs. This sweet Yorkie mix is being fostered near Tampa, FL.

THANK YOU TO HOLLY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Jean Kirwan, Nestor Sanchez

UPDATED BIO 11/19/2019: Little Holly was found roaming the streets, alone and very scared. She was picked up by animal control and taken to the shelter. After spending several days in the shelter waiting and hoping for someone to come get her, no one did, so she became a United Yorkie Rescue pup.

Holly came to us with five large mammary tumor masses. She has had her surgery and it went very well. And BONUS – the mammary tumors were found to be benign – hooray! Holly was also spayed and had a dental. She is eating well and is scheduled to have her sutures out on 11/29.

Holly has really shown her personality since being in her foster home. She is very sweet and loves to sit on her person's lap. The perfect home for her would be a home where there is at least stay-at-home parent to give her cuddles and kisses. She does bark when she wants attention. She is not completely house trained, but her Foster parents are working on that and whoever adopts her will have to continue the training. A fenced in yard would be ideal, but it is not a deal breaker.

PLEASE NOTE: Holly does not get along with other dogs, but she loves all people, so she needs to be an only dog. She can only be adopted in an adult-only home – no children for Holly.

If Holly’s story has tugged at your heartstrings, please consider making a donation to UYR to cover the costs of her surgery so that we can continue to help other little homeless dogs like Holly.

INITIAL BIO 10/30/2019: Little Holly was found roaming the streets, alone and very scared. She was picked up by animal control and taken to the shelter. After spending several days in the shelter waiting and hoping for someone to come get her, no one did, so she became a United Yorkie Rescue pup.

Holly has seen the vet and her heart and lungs sound great. But Holly needs surgery soon since she has several mammary tumor masses that must be removed. She had extensive labs done and once the results are in, hopefully surgery can be scheduled. Holly has moderate to severe dental disease that has to be taken care of as well and this will need to be done separately from her mammary mass removal. These surgeries can hopefully be done in a timely manner so that this little princess can be healthy and feel better.

In the short while Holly has been with her foster family, they say she is a sweet girl and a love bug!! She loves being on her foster parents’ laps and gladly gives lots and lots of kisses. She is also very playful. She is eating good and doing her business outside. She also appears to be crated-trained as well. She will come when Foster Mom calls her – sweet. She did great in the car ride to her foster home.

Foster Mom has determined that Holly prefers to be the only dog in the home as she doesn’t care to share the attention/love of her foster parents. She would also be happiest if she was adopted into a home with at least one-stay-at-home parent as well.

There is so much more to know about Holly and her sweet personality and medical needs. We do know she will need surgery very soon. Holly’s surgery will be expensive, and if this sweet girl’s story has touched your heart, please consider making a donation towards her medical expenses. It will be greatly appreciated and will ensure that UYR can continue to take in medically-needy and oh-so-deserving dogs like Holly.

Lilly - reporting for Save-The-World duty

I am looking for my forever home. Maybe it is yours.
Florida
Lilly

Meet Lilly. This Yorkie sweetheart is 10 years old and 9.9 pounds. She is looking for her forever home. Lovely Lilly is being fostered in Spring Hill, FL.

UPDATED BIO 10/25/2019: Sweet Lilly has only been in her foster home for a couple of weeks now, and she has been a busy little girlie at the vet’s office. Lilly’s former owner who had her since she was a little puppy went into an assisted living facility, and the family felt that Lilly would be better off with UYR so that we could find her the perfect second home.

Lilly has visited the vet several times in the past few weeks, and it has been discovered that she has Grade IV/IV luxating patellas. She is now on a daily tablet which will help with this condition. During her evaluation for surgery, her labs showed that she may have the beginning of kidney disease. This means that Lilly will need to be on medications to aid and support her kidneys and an RX food for kidney health the rest of her life. The vet feels that with this support, she is very adoptable and we already know she is very, very sweet and loving. Lilly returns to the vet in two weeks to have updated labs to ensure that the medications are working correctly.

She does have Keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS), more commonly referred to as dry eye. KCS results most often from an inadequate quantity of tears or a deficient quality of tears. She will need to be on a daily routine of eye drops also for this condition and this will also be for the rest of her life. She is temporarily on medications for skin allergies, and it is hoped that she can be weaned off of this medication since she is getting a healthy premium diet and her skin is looking and feeling much better.

Lilly’s current medications and eye drops are costing approximately $50 per month, including the supplements to help her knees feel better. This precious girlie is so worth every penny of this and will reward her owner(s) with dedication, sweetness and loyalty. Oh, and lotsa love!

Now for the oh-so-wonderful things about Lilly……she is learning to walk on a leash, although she is not accustomed to loud noises and can startle easily. As she gets used to being outdoors and going on long walks, this reaction should lessen. Due to her previous owner being unable to take Lilly out regularly, her house-training has suffered, but her foster mom is reinforcing that she needs to do her business outside and she is a smart little cookie and will eventually get it. Lilly loves all people and other dogs. She also loves to go on car rides and is a perfect little traveler. She sits up high in her little doggie car seat so that she can see out of all the windows, sweet.

Lilly’s foster mom says that she is a very good little girl who loves to lie at her human’s feet or will happily sit on their lap. She is only 10 years old and has many more years of life and love to give to her adoptive parents.

NOTE: Lilly can be placed in a home with children over the age of 12 years old.

Initial bio 10-10-19 Lilly arrived at her foster home today. This sweet girl had been with her mom since she was a puppy. Sadly her mom got sick and had to go into an assisted living facility. Her family lived too far away to take Lilly so she went to stay at her vet clinic for a week. While Lilly was at the vet clinic her former mom's family reached out to United Yorkie Rescue and explained the situation and asked if we would take her. Of course we would! Today Lilly became a United Yorkie Rescue girl.

Her foster mom said Lilly was perfect in the car. She walks nicely on a leash and was fine with her fur brother. Lilly has some allergies that she is on meds for and a limited ingredient dog food. She also has dry eye that is easily treated with eye drops. She seems to be a very well behaved little lady.

Lilly would make a perfect companion for a senior citizen who wants a sweet girl to be their special baby.

Please come back soon for more information on Lilly as she settles into her foster home. Maybe Lilly will be the pup you have always been looking for, she sure is looking for you.


To date we've spent $706.29 on Lilly's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.
Please donate!

Maizie Hope

MEET MAIZIE HOPE. Maizie is a very sweet little yorkie who is 8 years old and only weighs 5 lbs. This little princess is being fostered in Tallahassee, FL .

THANK YOU TO MAIZIE HOPE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Marianne Woods, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Ami Thomason, Wendy Fuhrmaneck

THANK YOU TO MAIZIE HOPE'S FACEBOOK DONORS!

Robin Callahan, Linda Murray, Julie Clark, Sue Riggs Howard Purdy, Dana Ogorzalek, Holly Keller, Victoria Orlova, Connie Pfeiffer, Patsy Wynne, Latricia Wallace-Alboszta, Karry Rogers, Alexa Rowan, Gail VanDermark-Kimieci, Carol Nelson, Marti Trgovich, Wendy Williams Kapic, Lucy Hall

UPDATED BIO 11/12/2019: Maizie Hope has now been in her foster home for almost 3 weeks and she is doing amazingly well. Maizie was picked up as a stray by Animal Control, and was transferred immediately to an Emergency Vet due to her injuries and medical issues. She had multiple puncture wounds on her muzzle and maggots were in the wounds. She also had cloudy eyes and ocular discharge was also noted. Her muzzle had multiple bite sounds and was swollen and bruised; one puncture penetrated completely through her lip; she also had maggot eggs all over her muzzle. Both eyes had corneal ulcers and sadly, her right eye had to be enucleated (removed).

Maizie had another re-check on her eye yesterday and the ulcerated cornea in that eye is almost healed – yippee! She needs to continue on the two eye meds and will be re-checked in 10 days to see if she needs any further treatment, but that is unlikely at this point. Maizie’s teeth will need some attention since most of them are ground down, and there are some fractures – we think this is due to the fact that this little one was crated day and night and she may have gnawed at the crate trying to get out.

Although Maizie Hope has been through a really bad time recently, she is a happy and playful little girlie. She loves loves LOVES to carry around her little squeaky toy and will bring it on command, drop it and allow her foster mom to throw it again. She is very friendly and loves to be with her people. She is crate-trained and enjoys sleeping in her crate at night. Her house-training is on-going, and she is improving. She is taken out every two hours or so, and will always potty outside, but has occasional accidents in the home. Her foster parents are working with her on this, and she is a smart little girlie and will eventually get it. We have history on Maizie that she has previously lived with cats although there are no cats in her foster home. She was a perfect little angel at the groomer – sweet!

Maizie has a delightful and engaging personality and is very curious about all the sights and sounds she encounters when she goes out in the fenced-in yard in her foster home. It appears she was not allowed outside much since everything appears to be brand new to her and she is enjoying hearing the forest sounds of chirping birds, growling alligators and the chittering of squirrels. She will come on command, is fairly quiet and pretty much ignores the two resident dogs in the home. Although Maizie initially quietly grumbled at the two dogs in the foster home when she has a toy in her mouth, that has mostly stopped and they now happily get along – by ignoring one another lol. Maizie’s foster mom feels she would be fine in the home with another dog who is docile and understands that Maizie likes to think she is the queen of her domain, or she would be happy being an only dog. She loves being with her people and readily gives kisses, loves belly rugs and enjoys sitting on laps.

Maizie has shown that she is resilient and although she has had some neglect in her recent past, she still has HOPE that her future will be much brighter. If Maizie’s story has touched your heart, please consider making a donation to UYR so that we can continue to help other little helpless and homeless dogs like her.

Both eyes had corneal ulcers and sadly, her right eye had to be enucleated (removed).

Fast Forward to today ……. Maizie Hope had a re-check on her left eye last week and there was a bit of good news. The ulcerated cornea in that eye appears to be healing and she is to continue on the two eye meds and will be re-checked in one week to determine if she needs any further treatment. She has vision in that eye and has no problem whatsoever getting around.

UPDATED BIO 10/28/2019: Maizie Hope has now been in her foster home for 4 days and she is doing very well. Maizie was picked up as a stray by Animal Control, and was transferred immediately to an Emergency Vet due to her injuries and medical issues. She had multiple puncture wounds on her muzzle and maggots were in the wounds. She also had cloudy eyes and ocular discharge was also noted.

INITIAL BIO 10/24/2019: This sweet little girlie just arrived into her foster home today from an area shelter. The shelter reached out to UYR due to the unusual and sad circumstances that Maizie Hope presented with. She was picked up as a stray, and was transferred immediately to an Emergency Vet due to her injuries and medical issues. Maizie had multiple puncture wounds on her muzzle and maggots were in the wounds. She also had cloudy eyes and ocular discharge was also noted. Her muzzle was swollen and bruised and one puncture penetrated completely through her lip; she also had maggot eggs all over her muzzle.

Poor Maizie was in so much pain, and it was discovered that she also had bilateral corneal ulcers and evidence of an old injury in her right eye. Her muzzle was clipped and she was cleaned up as much as possible and given pain meds to make her more comfortable. Back at the shelter, her right eye continued to be very painful and it was decided that she had little vision in that eye, and she went straight to surgery for an enucleation (removal of the eye). She is on two eye meds for her left eye in the hopes the cornea will heal, as well as antibiotics following her surgery.

In spite of all that is going on with this little girlie, she is happy and playful. She loves to carry around her little toy and will bring it on command, drop it and allow her foster mom to throw it again. She is very friendly and loves to be with her people. She has previously lived with cats and has good interactions with other dogs.

Maizie has shown that she is resilient and although she has had some neglect in her recent past, she still has HOPE that her future will be much brighter. If Maizie’s story has touched your heart, please consider making a donation to UYR so that we can continue to help other little helpless and homeless dogs like her. Stay tuned for information on Maizie Hope.

I am looking beautiful after my grooming

I will love you forever.
Florida
Rosie

Rosie is a sweet senior Yorkie. She is about 10 years old and weighs 5.4 pounds. Rosie is being fostered in St. Augustine, FL

THANK YOU TO ROSIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Patricia Riddle

UPDATED BIO 10/30/2019: Rosie is a beautiful little yorkie who was sadly surrendered by her owner who could no longer provide for her care. Rosie came into UYR on 07/20/2019. She was a very scared little girl initially with all the changes in her life happening so suddenly. Fast Forward 3 months - Rosie has come a long way since being in the loving home of her foster parents. There are four resident yorkies in the home, and they all took her under their paws to make her feel welcome and loved.

Rosie is a very happy little girlie and loves going outside with the pack and exploring. She also loves going for long walks and she’s a very good little traveler in the car. The only thing that Rosie seems to not like so much is being picked up and held; however, she will come into the room with her foster parents and sit or lie down close to them, so she really enjoys being with her people, just not being picked up.

Rosie came into UYR with a grand taste for human food, which may have been what she had been eating all her life in her former home. Yikes! She now eats a doggie diet of a premium hard food along with some wet food. However, if she hears a bag opening that she may perceive as a yummy human snack, she will come running to get some lol! That doesn’t work anymore, but she still is hoping that it will haha! When foster mom is in the kitchen, Rosie magically appears and looks at her as if she is going to get some sort of human treat – NOT.

Rosie gets along with the two cats in the home as well as the four litttle yorkies – she’s easy-going that way. She seems to like people because she always wants to check out whoever comes over to visit. She is a very sweet little girl who would be a wonderful companion.

• Now for some not-so-happy news …… it has been determined through several rounds of labs and other testing that little Rosie is in kidney failure. This breaks our hearts to hear, but UYR is determined that this little girl will have the best life possible. She is currently on thyroid meds (cost = $10/monthly) and recently started on Azodyl which is a nutritional supplement that focuses on the reduction of toxin buildup in the blood and supports continued healthy kidney function (cost = $76 for 45-day supply).

Please don’t turn away from Rosie because of this diagnosis as she so deserves to have all the love and compassion as a healthier dog. Without a crystal ball, it is impossible to know how long Rosie can be managed on this medication, but it is our hope and prayer that someone will consider adopting this little princess and give her the best life possible for the time she has left, which could potentially be several years. Could that someone be you?

UPDATED BIO 10/03/2019: Rosie is a beautiful little senior yorkie who was sadly surrendered by her owner who could no longer provide for her care. She has been in her foster home for 2 months now and is making progress and becoming much more social than when she first arrived. She is more interested in the comings and goings of the family, and if friends/neighbors arrive, she is always curious about them and will approach them to check them out.

Rosie still won’t come when called, but that may just be her personality – she may feel like a princess who expects her humans to come to her lol! Her foster parents were recently on a long trip and when they returned home, Rosie was as excited to see them as the resident dogs were and greeted them enthusiastically, which is a big step for her. She can now be picked up by her foster parents as long as they hold her tightly against their bodies – it’s very possible that Rosie may have been accidentally dropped early on in her life and that may account for her fear of being picked up. Even when she is gently placed back on the floor, she panics for a few seconds. She is good with the dogs and cats in the home, but doesn’t interact with them.

Rosie continues to be happiest when she is taken outside – she will go from one side of the yard to the other side, smelling and exploring all the while. She is now enjoying running around the yard and experiencing the feeling of freedom when she does this – it’s easy to tell how happy she is when she is frolicking around the yard. It would be great for Rosie to be adopted into a furever home with a fenced yard, but that is not a deal breaker as long as she can go for several long walks every day and be allowed to explore as she walks.

Rosie has age-related bilateral cataracts but she has no problem getting around and investigating all the wonders of the outdoors. Her early labs showed some low values for her thyroid and pancreas, and she has been on meds for both since she arrived in UYR; she has a follow-up appointment on 10/24 to determine if she will need these meds for the rest of her life. If that’s the case, the monthly cost for the meds is only $10.

Are you looking for a sweet little companion who loves to take long walks in the outdoors? Please don’t turn away from Rosie because of her age – she deserves a wonderful furever home like all other companion animals. You will not be disappointed and she will love you forever.

UPDATED BIO 08/17/2019: Rosie is a beautiful little senior yorkie who was sadly surrendered by her owner who could no longer provide for her care. She has been in her loving foster home for almost a month now. Rosie has come a long way since she first arrived and seems to get along with all the doggies & kitties in the home. She will even approach them in a curious way to say ‘hello’, and even the kitties seem to like her. They show their acceptance by rubbing over her body and Rosie seems to enjoy the interaction.

Rosie is coming out of her shell every day – she’s had a lot of changes in her life and sometimes accepting those changes is slow. She prefers being on the floor, but close to her people. She also enjoys getting attention from her foster parents but is not yet comfortable enough to sit on their laps. This may change as time goes by. Rosie’s favorite thing to do is to explore outside – she loves being outside and will go from one side of the yard to the other side, smelling and exploring all the while. It would be great for her to be adopted into a furever home with a fenced yard, but that is not a deal breaker as long as she can go for long walks and explore as she walks.

Rosie has seen the vet and she does have age-related bilateral cataracts but appears to see well enough to get around. She may also have age-related arthritis and has been started on glucosamine supplements which should definitely help. Her labs showed some low values for her thyroid and pancreas, and she is on meds for both for 2 months to see if there is improvement. We don’t know at this time how her body will react to the meds nor if she will need meds for the rest of her life. Once that is determined, Rosie will be scheduled for a dental and be ready to be adopted in 6-8 weeks.

Please stay tuned to learn more about this sweet little girlie. Rosie’s vetting has been a bit expensive and there’s more vetting to be done in the future. If you have been touched by this sweet girlie’s story, please consider a donation to UYR, which can easily be done by clicking on the PayPal link below.

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

Rosie has cataracts but she has vision and gets around very good. She will need all her vaccinations updated, as well as a heartworm test and blood work. She loves being outdoors walking around and smelling everything in her new environment.

Rosie has only been in her foster home a few days and has been checking everything out. She may be a senior, but she is as curious about her new surroundings and home as a young pup. After Rosie's vet visit her foster parents will know if she has any medical issues that need to be taken care of, as well as what she needs in her forever home. Please come back soon as Rosie will be seeing the vet on Monday 07/29 and we will know more about her health at that time.


To date we've spent $1062.11 on Rosie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $25.00 in donations.

I had my surgery and am recuperating.
Florida
Sandi

Sandi is a beautiful Yorkie mix who is estimated to be 7-1/2 years old and weighs 12 pounds. Sandi is being fostered in Vero Beach, FL.

THANK YOU TO SANDI'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Nestor Sanchez

UPDATED BIO 11/19/2019: Sandi has now been in her UYR foster home for two weeks. She came to us after being found as a stray, then landing in 3 temporary homes that were not good fits for her through absolutely no fault of her own.

While we don’t know many details about Sandi’s life prior to rescue, we can say that she came to us needing extensive medical care. She had an absolutely ENORMOUS abdominal hernia, was unaltered and had many teeth which were badly decayed. Sandi’s hernia was so bad it looked like she had a grapefruit hanging from her lower groin area. Until her surgery yesterday, we weren’t completely sure it wasn’t a tumor because the contents felt more solid than most hernias. Sandi’s case proved truly unique. When her abdominal cavity was opened, her anatomy was so distorted that her surgery took hours to perform. After much exploring and disentangling its was discovered that Sandi’s uterus was actually entrapped in her very large hernia. Sandi’s vet stated this was the first time he had ever seen anything quite like it. Her repair was complex to say the least. Sandi also had 10 teeth extracted so this little girl is now recovering from a very

B-I-G surgery.

Sandi is a sweet, beautiful girl with soulful eyes that will melt your heart. Her eyes seem to convey a feeling of sadness, but we are 100% committed to giving this precious girl the fairy tale ending she so richly deserves! Sandi is being attended to by her doting foster mom who is administering her pain meds and monitoring her closely.

Sandi could sure use some support in the form of prayers, shares and donations so that we can continue to help provide for her needs. If Sandi’s story has pulled at your heartstrings, please consider making a donation to UYR to go towards her vetting expenses.

UPDATED BIO 11/03/2019: Hi All – Sandi here! My history before June of this year is not know. Here’s what I do know - a very nice lady took me in as a stray and I was matted and covered with fleas – yuk! She cleaned me up and gave me a great home until it became apparent that I wanted to be an only dog. I was then given to another couple who didn't know what to do with me except keep me in a crate all day – that was no fun and made me very anxious. Then onto Home #3… the nice lady who took me in discovered that I needed to be an only dog, and now I’m in Home #4 – the best one yet! I have a sweet foster mom who told me that I will stay here while I am getting healthy, and that my next home will be my furever home and that I will never ever have to move again. That will be so nice.

I've only been in foster care for a few days now, but my foster mom says I'm making progress – I think that’s a good thing. I am a smart little cookie – I am completely house- trained – BONUS! I do have some anxiety and possessiveness with "my human", but I'm feeling more comfortable now. Foster mom says that because I do not like to share my human with other dogs, that I really need to be the only dog in my furever home. I love to go on long walks several times a day and foster mom thinks this helps my anxiety. I think my perfect home would be one where there is at least one stay-at-home parent, and that they like to go on l-o-n-g walks. I am not sure about children, but maybe if the kids are over 12 years old and calm and well-behaved, I may like that.

I have seen a really nice vet who said it will be a few weeks before I'm ready for surgery. I have a hernia or possible growth that needs to be repaired or removed, and the vet said it's not likely that I've been spayed so that will be done as well. Foster mom says I have stinky breath and I will have a dental, too ….. ALL AT THE SAME TIME! But I’ll come out of surgery all fixed up and having a sweet-smelling mouth. I will be looking for a forever home sometime in December, but if you think I will be perfect for your home, please complete and submit an adoption application for me – I think I will be a very popular little girlie. And I’ll have a spa day soon and I’m sure I will be even more beautiful than I am now.

PLEASE NOTE: If you have been moved by Sandi’s story and would like to help her learn to trust people again, please consider donating whatever you can towards her upcoming surgeries. We need to let this little princess know that she is worth it and that people do care about her and her needs and happiness.

Initial Bio 10/31/19 Meet Sandi our pupsicle treat for Halloween. Sandi has had it rough the last few months. She went from her home, to the streets, to another home, then to another home, and now to her foster home. In the course of less than 6 months she has been in 4 different homes. It is no wonder Sandi is showing some signs of anxiety, since she has no idea where she may end up tomorrow. United Yorkie Rescue will make sure Sandi is given love and care and kindness, while she learns she is not going anywhere until she is ready for her final and forever home.

We know that one of the reasons Sandi went from home to home is that she does not like other dogs. It seems when she loves her person, she wants to be the only pup in their life. Her foster mom knows that, and the one thing she will for sure do for Sandi is to find her a forever home where she will be the only pup in the home.

Sandi has already seen the vet. She got all her vaccinations and heartworm test. She still needs a dental. She has either a hernia or a mass that needs to be removed, at that time she will get her spay if she still needs it. So, she has that pretty big surgery coming up for her. The surgery won't be for a few weeks, until she has settled down and adjusted more to her foster home. If you would like to help Sandi learn to trust people, please consider donating whatever you can towards her surgery. Let her know she is worth it and people do care.

Soon Sandi will have her spa day with a nice bath and a grooming. Check back soon as Sandi settles into her foster home and her foster parents get to know her better. New pictures coming too.


To date we've spent $183.15 on Sandi's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $50.00 in donations.

I am a sweet little boy and love my brother Harley

Can you see how much we love one another?
Florida
Scooby Doo (and Harley)

MEET SCOOBY DOO! He is 10-1/2 years old and weighs 8 lbs. He and his brother Harley are very bonded and must be adopted together. Scooby Doo is being fostered in Palm Coast, FL.

THANK YOU TO SCOOBY DOO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Irene and Peter Havas in memory of darling Happy

UPDATED BIO 10/21/2019: Hi again from the Twins - Scooby Doo & Harley. Here’s what these precious little fellas had to say recently:

Scooby Doo and Harley here. Well, my brother and I have an interesting story, so listen up……. because we are so adorable and sweet and perfect, we did get adopted. We were sad to leave our Foster Mom, but loved our new family. But – they had a kitty cat, and both the kitty cat and the two of us decided we didn’t like one another. It was mostly the cat’s fault – that’s our story and we’re sticking to it. So now we're back looking for a new furever home – but one with NO kitty cats. We were kinda bummed to leave our new home, but we can tell you that our UYR Foster Mom Debbi was so happy-happy-happy to welcome us back with open arms and lotsa love!

Harley and I get along great with all the other doggies we have met and all the people we meet, too. We are just the most precious little boys and we are definitely bonded, and will need someone that is wanting to adopt both of us, so we can stay together!! We love car rides and also love going on walks. But the best thing ever is when Foster Mom takes us both to the store and we get to ride in the stroller. YEAH!

We also love to play fetch and run around in the fenced yard. The very best thing is we are crate-trained so we happily eat in the crate and also sleep all night in our nice comfy crates. BONUS! We are also house-trained. We are not only good-looking and sweet, but we are very smart as well.

We are both still kinda on a doggie diet since the vet thought me and my brother Harley were a little chunky. WHAT? That’s easy for the vet to say, and all we can say is Ruff! Ruff! That’s what we think about losing weight. It’s rough. But Foster Mom said we can do it and we will be able to run even faster and longer than we already do. That’s a good thing. We love being with our people, and we will promise to love you forever and ever……….

UPDATED BIO 09/02/2019: Hi from the “twins” Scooby Doo & Harley. These precious boys have been with foster mom for only a few days now but she wanted to give everyone an update on these sweet SWEET boys.

Scooby Doo & Harley are truly a bonded pair and so close they don't even want to be out of each other’s sight. Foster mom says they are joined at the hip so-to-speak. They are little snuggle bugs and love to be with their person all the time. They are getting along with all the other dogs in the home, and love their crates which they use for both meals and sleeping. Their former owner trained them to eat in their crates and they are very happy to sleep there as well – foster mom says “let’s go night-night” and they run to their crates. They are such smart little boys!

Scooby Doo & Harley are always ready to go for a walk, and they even love to take car rides just to sightsee. These little boys are so very well-mannered and just love everyone they meet. And BONUS – they are housetrained as well! Wahoo!

When they recently had their well doggie check, the vet thought both are a little overweight. Scooby Doo weighs 8 pounds and Harley weighs 14 pounds. It’s important for them to be a healthy weight, so they are now on a doggie diet and getting way more exercise as well. They love to play ball and it’s so much fun watching them running like crazy when the ball is thrown to see who can get it first lol!

Scooby Doo & Harley are current on all their vaccinations, but will see the vet soon to have a dental exam and get their microchip. Stay tuned for more information on these precious “twins”.

INITIAL BIO 08/28/2019: Scooby Doo and his brother Harley just arrived into UYR today. They were sadly surrendered by their loving owner who had them since they were puppies due to some unfortunate changes in her life. They are very bonded and need to be adopted together. Please stay tuned to learn more about these sweet boys.

Toby

MEET TOBY! This little nugget is 5-1/2 years old and only weighs 4.8 lbs. Toby is being fostered in Orlando, FL.

THANK YOU TO TOBY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Irene and Peter Havas in memory of darling Happy

UPDATED BIO 11/20/2019: Hi, Toby here. I've been with my new foster mom for just a few days now, and I've finally learned how a little companion doggie like me is supposed to live and be loved! And I’m liking it!

I saw the doctor yesterday, and except for a couple small issues which are going to be resolved in the next few weeks, I'm a healthy little boy. I was also heartworm negative – thank goodness! I got all my vaccinations, and the vet said that I need to gain a few ounces.

Now that I’m eating yummy nutritious food on a regular basis, I don’t think that’s going to be a problem. Bring on the grub!

Because I was rescued from a not-so-good situation, my poor teeth are icky and make my mouth hurt, so I need a dental very badly – that will be done the same time as my neuter next week. The doctor says I don't have very many teeth left, and will most likely lose all of them. But, that's okay. Foster mom said that she will feed me soft food for a while, and she said that some doggies like me with no teeth can still eat kibble – wahoo! One more thing - my anal glands were infected and that made me feel really bad. But I’ll be on antibiotics for two weeks, and after that time if all that has been cleared up, I’m ready to go to my forever home.

Foster mom says I am the SWEETEST, most adorable little boy, and that I love cuddling and belly rubs! I see no reason to argue with that. I love being on foster mom’s lap. I also love being outside and going for walks, so a fenced-in yard would be a big bonus. I also walk very well on a leash. Because I have not been neutered yet, I do have a tendency to mark my territory, but hopefully, I'll be better about that afterwards. In the meantime, foster mom keeps a belly band on me when I'm inside, and I don't mind that at all. Because I am so small, I also don't sleep in the big people bed, because I could fall (or jump) off and hurt myself. So I have a snuggly bed of my own, with a soft comfy blanket that the nice people from "Wrapped in Love" made for me.

Here’s another bit of good news - I get along very well with the other resident doggie and the cat that live in my foster home. I could be your only dog, or I would be just as happy having a doggie companion close to my size and age. I am a very happy boy now that I am in a loving home where I am being so well taken care of. Might you be the one/ones who want to love me like that next? I hope so!

PLEASE: Due to Toby’s small size, he cannot be adopted into a home with any children under 14. NO EXCEPTIONS!

Initial Bio 11-16-19 Toby just arrived today. We know so little about him. We do know he was most likely a breeder dog who was turned out and taken in by someone who really didn't want him. She only took him in because he had no place else to go. It wasn't very long before she didn't want him either and told his next owner to either take him or she will send him to the shelter. This wonderful person took him in even though she already had several of her own dogs. She knew that if she reached out the angels at United Yorkie Rescue they would take this little guy, care for him, and then find him a wonderful forever home.

So today Toby became a United Yorkie Rescue dog. He will see the vet very soon and be given all the care and love he deserves. Come along with UYR and Toby's foster mom as we learn the Toby Story.


To date we've spent $256.98 on Toby's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $276.98 in donations.

Francie (Rhue)

Meet Francie a 8 year old, 8 pound Yorkie. She is 1/2 of a bonded pair being fostered in Suwanee,GA

Updated Bio 11/16/19

Francie and Rhue are looking for a new home. Their mom passed away and there was no one available to keep them together so they came into United Yorkie Rescue in hopes someone will fall in love with this pair and give them a new home. Francie just had her first dental ever in all of her 8 years and she lost 11 teeth. You'd think this might slow her down but she's still hungry and really enjoying her soft food for the next few days while she heals. She wants attention but not so sure she wants to be in a lap yet. She does like to get under your feet while you are sitting and use them to scratch her back. Francie enjoys exploring the backyard with her sister Rheu and will come when called. She must be walked with a harness and not with a lead attached to her collar because it makes her choke. She is a good car rider, is indifferent to kids and cats and appears to be almost completely house trained. Francie prefers to sleep in a corner of your bed but she is also crate trained. She's going to need a good patient home where they are willing to give her the time to feel safe and settle in. Any questions please email foster mom at jennifer@unitedyorkierescue.org

Maddie

Adorable little Maddie is a estimated 1.5 year old, terrier mix weighing 11 pounds and is being fostered in Hiawat5see, GA

THANK YOU TO MADDIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Trula Montgomery

Updated Bio October 10, 2019. Maddie is a beautiful Yorkie mix that is approximately 1 1/2 years old. She weighs 11 lbs and has a gorgeous tri-color coat. She is healthy, spayed and up to date on her vaccinations. This little daredevil is full of energy and spunk! Now that we’ve had time to assess Maddie’s personality, Maddie does not care to do her business on a leash, therefore, Foster Mom feels that she should go to a home with a fenced in yard. Maddie is a climber and shows great agility at jumping. She will need a secure fence as she could easily climb and soar over a chain link one. Maddie is not house trained, but we are continuing to work on it and she is making good progress. Maddie is very dog reactive, but loves people. Her ideal home is one without other pets. She does eventually warm up to smaller dogs or ones her size, but she wants all of her human’s attention and can sometimes be a bully about it. Maddie absolutely loses her mind with larger dogs and a trainer or an experienced adopter will be needed to counter condition this issue. Even if she is the only dog in the household, she will encounter other dogs on walks, in public places, as well as, vet visits. In fact, she almost incited a literal “dog riot” at her last vet visit She is not compatible around cats either. Maddie will need an active family that will take her on walks and play with her. She loves children, but she can get a little too rough during play, therefore, small children in the home or ones that visit frequently are not ideal. Maddie is very loving and wants to be next to her human at all times. She is a complete cuddle bug and will make some family a perfect companion. She is very smart and knows some basic commands. She does not charge a door and waits patiently to be let out. Maddie sleeps in a crate at night because she can be too bossy with her foster siblings when she is trying to find her perfect spot in bed.. She doesn’t mind being crated for short periods of time, but really needs a family that is home with her to give her the attention she needs. Maddie was found as a stray and ended up in a shelter, so little is known about her past. Foster Mom wants the best home possible for sweet Maddie, so she is being very discerning. Maddie is ready for her Forever Family. If your family has the perfect home for Maddie, please fill out an application at www.unitedyorkierescue.org.

Updated Bio 8/27/2019: I can’t believe my Foster Mom’s Inbox isn’t full of potential adopters for me! Don’t let my Big Dog Aggression scare you. I am a really smart girl and want to please my human. With the right family who wants to invest some time and energy into training me, I’d be forever grateful and show you a lifetime of kisses and cuddles...because those are a few of my favorite things to do! My FM even says she knows a great trainer that says I need some counter-conditioning. That sounds great, because I know I’d do great cleaning up all that food on those counters! FM says that’s not what she is talking about, plus I’m way too short to be on the counters. Phooey! Anyway, FM says I’ve settled down around my new foster siblings that are my size. I still like to be the pack leader and assert my beautiful self into everyone’s business. FM says part of that is just being a boisterous puppy with lots of energy. I would love an active family with a yard, where I could be the center of attention. I am a little too rowdy with toys and sometimes I need to be reminded to calm down, therefore, FM says that I’m not the best playmate for little humans and would recommend a home without them. If you are that special someone that has the time and commitment for my special behavior needs, please fill out an application for me...that is M*A*(two D’s)*I*E! I am up to date on shots and spayed and ready for my new family. If you cannot adopt at this time, consider donating to my foster siblings who are sick and need your help to feel better. Paws Crossed !

Updated bio 8/8/2019:

MADDIE is a young and very energetic girl who is looking for lots of love and attention. She is an 11 lb. Yorkie mix with beautiful Tri-color markings. At only 2 years old, she can be all puppy and wants to run and play with toys. Although, this little spitfire is the perfect love bug and companion for an active family, she is very “BIG DOG” reactive. A committed adopter will need to be able to physically control her, as well as, address this problematic behavior. Maddie will encounter other dogs out on walks and at vet appointments, even if she is placed in an “only” dog home. She is going to need a lot of patience and would benefit from counter-conditioning training. She would do best in a home with no other dogs to divert her human’s attention away from her. She does eventually warm up to some smaller dogs in the home. After a week at Foster Mom’s, she has settled into a routine, but still tries to assert herself as the Pack Leader. We are not sure if she is compatible with cats, but she seems to get along with all humans. Maddie loves a good squeaky toy and a game of fetch, but she can get a little rough during play. For this reason, she would not be good in a home with small children. She is not potty trained, as most dogs who find themselves in new situations, struggle with this. She is very smart and already knows several commands. She does not charge an open door and really seems to want to please her human. She does pull when walked on a leash, but we are working on that with her. Maddie was found as a stray whose family never came looking for her, so we will never know her story. She is healthy and up to date on her shots. She is scheduled to be spayed this week and will be available for adoption afterwards. Careful consideration is needed in deciding if you are the perfect companion for Maddie. Due to her behavioral issues, Foster Mom will be picky, as she needs to find a Forever home where she will receive the training, love and patience she deserves the best!

Rhue (Francie)

Meet Rhue a 10 year old, 30 pound Cockapoo. She is 1/2 of a bonded pair being fostered in Suwanee,GA

Updated Bio 11/16/19

Rheu is a 10 year old 30 pound Cockapoo. She is bonded with Francie and is being fostered in Suwanee, Georgia.

Rheu and Francie are looking for a new home. Their mom passed away and there was no one available to keep them together so they came into United Yorkie Rescue in hopes someone will fall in love with this pair and give them a new home. Rheu is the youngest 10 year old you're likely to meet. She likes to run and explore though she is not quite sure exactly how to play she knows she wants to. Rheu wants to be where you are. She is a shadow but has an independent side too. She is a pleasant companion and loves belly scratches especially when you get down to her level and get serious about giving her the massage and scratches that she enjoys so much. Rheu is supposed to be a cockapoo but really looks like she's more Cocker than Poodle. She doesn't shed much, is almost completely house trained, comes when called but needs to be taught some leash manners. Rheu loves cats and kids! Rheu likes to sleep with her owner but is crate trained. There's still some harmless puppy mischief in this wonderful old dog.

Marley

Marley and Nicki
Illinois
Marley IL

Ten year old Marley, a boy, and 11 year old Nikki, a girl, spent their lives together as breeder dogs. Fortunately they were recently released as their owner passed away, allowing them a chance at a better forever life. Both are being fostered near Chicago, IL.

UPDATE BIO: 11/01/19. My foster mom says that my sister are I are ready to go to our forever homes. She says it will be even nicer than here, but I can hardly imagine that. I get along well with my foster brothers. Although I do not really like playing with toys, I love chewing on jerky sticks, even though I do not have many teeth! My foster mom also makes REALLY GOOD food, so I gobble it up. She says that I need just a little more meat on my bones.

I have a lot of energy, so we go for several long walks each day. I am more relaxed and get into less trouble when I have been out on a walk.It is getting cold, so I do not enjoy them as much as I did before. My sister is the "princess" and I am the "clown." My foster mom and her friends are always laughing at my antics.

If you are looking for some good laughs, give my foster mom a call!

Update 10/13/19: I really like living at my foster mom's house. She says that I am going to get to go to another house where I will stay forever. She says it will even be better than here, but I can't believe that. I love it here! I have a lot of energy, so mom and I go out for several long walks each day. I was a country dog, but now I am a city dog and I LOVE, I mean LOVE all of the smells. I have to keep walking or mom gives me a little tug. She does let me stop for a sniff here and there. Next week I have to go for some surgery. Mom is hoping that it will help me stop marking in the house. She does not like it, but I just can't help it. I want everyone to know I have been here! I don't like to stay in the pen when my mom goes to work, but she thinks I will get into trouble if she leaves me out. One day I got to stay in the pen with my foster brothers, and that was really fun. I only get to do that if my sister is not around. Mom says that 4 dogs in 1 pen is too much, so I stay in one with my sister Nikki. We are the best of friends, and are looking for a home that can take both of us. We have been together my whole like, and I think I would miss her if we did not go together. Keep tuned, and I will let you know about my surgery in a week or so.

Initial Bio 10/5/19: Since this adorable pair has been together all of their lives, they rely on each other for company and must be adopted together. Their initial vet visit indicates their overall health is very good, however they will need some additional vetting to have dentals, spays, and neuters completed before they become adoption ready. Both are responding well in their foster home and coming out of the shell.

Marley is very high energy and requires several walks a day, while Nikki is happy sitting on the couch and relaxing. Marley and Nikki will require a home without any children. They are both very lovable and like to be near their humans. A perfect home would involve a work from home or retired couple. Both are currently working on potty training. Marley and Nikki’s future owner will need to continue patience with potty training. Preference is their new home has a secure fence as these two will be adapting to a new life in a loving home.

Marley had a trip to the vet, and was very cooperative. He will need to be neutered as well as have his teeth cleaned. Currently he has some trouble chewing, but that does not deter him from enjoying his meals! He is wearing a belly band at all times, as he will mark everything in the house. However, when we go out on walks, he is a very good walker, and does not stop to mark. We are hoping that this will decrease once he is neutered. He gets along well with his foster brothers.


To date we've spent $837.87 on Marley IL's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Nicki

Nicki and Marley
Illinois
Nicki IL

10 year old Marley (male) , 19-221, and 11 year old Nikki (female) 19-222 spent their lives together as breeder dogs. Fortunately they were recently released as their owner passed away, allowing them a chance at a better forever life. Both are being fostered near Chicago, IL.

10/13/19: I have been at my foster mom's home for a couple of weeks now, and I am really starting to feel comfortable. I have been to the vet, and had some surgeries so I never have to have any more babies. :-) What a relief!! It seemed like I was a puppy-making machine. I also had some ugly lesions on my back, so I had those removed also. I am getting all spiffed up for my forever home. I have gotten so brave this week. I left my safe place on the couch, and ventured out into the kitchen where my foster mom works. At first it was a little scary, but then I went over to her, and she picked me up. I noticed that my foster brothers also like to hang out in the kitchen with my mom. My brother Marley likes to sit on the kitchen chair, but I would rather sit on my mom's lap. I am looking for a forever home that has a nice couch, and a lap for me to sit in.

10/5/19: Since this adorable pair has been together all of their lives, they rely on each other for company and must be adopted together. Their initial vet visit indicates their overall health is very good, however they will need some additional vetting to have dentals, spays, and neuters completed before they become adoption ready.

Nikki is a very sweet girl. Her favorite place if the couch. She sits on it Initially she was fearful of humans, and would become stiff and tremulous, but now she will come up and want to be held. She will eat well if I feed her on the couch. That is her "Safe place". Nikki will be going for some surgery this month. She has a number of lesions (about 6-7) that need to be removed. The vet does not think they are cancerous, but states they are a risk for rupturing. She wants to be in tip top shape when she goes to her forever home! She also has a number of loose teeth, so they will need to pull those when she has her dental. She will also be spayed if she is doing well under anesthesia.

11/6/19 On 10/27/19 a call was made to animal control that I was lying in a warehouse and they thought I was hit by a car. I was taken to NYC shelter, I couldn’t stand and I was in pain. X-rays were done and I have a shattered pelvis and both hips are fractured. I also had a very large bladder stone. The shelter did surgery to remove the bladder stone and I was spayed at that time also. I’m a hurting little bit but strong and loving. I’ve been very still and on crate rest. I can stand, and walk. The specialty Vets can’t understand how I’m able to stand and walk with such extensive injuries. I’ll keep you posted with my progress. The estimates for my surgery are very high and I would appreciate any donations you can make to help!

Little Man

Little Man is a 8 year old Yorkie boy who weighs 5 pounds and is being fostered near Ashland City,TN.

Initial Bio 10/31/19: Little Man was surrendered by his family who was gone to much and felt like he deserved a family who could be home with him more and give him the attention he deserves. He has just seen the Doctor and is a healthy doggie. He is scheduled to be neutered and have a dental in a week. Little Man is a very sweet boy and loves to give lots of kisses. He rides well in a car and gets along great with other dogs and everyone he meets. He loves to sleep with Foster Mom and his Foster doggie siblings. He will use the wee wee pads and go out to potty with the other dogs, however, he does mark. Things should improve in that area after his neuter. Little Man would be a great family dog. He needs a family that is home most of the time so he doesn’t have to be by himself all day long. If you think he is a match for you please fill out an application or email Foster Mom to learn more about this sweet little guy.

Update

11/12/19

Marley Belle is doing great after her liver shunt surgery! She recently went to the Dogtor for her post op appointment the Dogtor was so happy with her progress. She has started to reduce the medications she is taking and soon she will be off the liver shunt medication. The Dogtor did say that she would recommend leaving her on the liver diet food. She can now start to run and play. Marley is super excited about this change she loves to be able to be active and explore chew on things and most of all she loves that FM mom is now letting her sleep in the bed. Once she is weened off all the liver shunt medications she will go back to the Dogtor to get the rest of her puppy shots as this had to be put on hold due to the seriousness of her previous condition. She will also have her teeth evaluated she actually has two rows of teeth which may require a dental and extractions. Please continue to pray for Marley Belle that she continue to improve everyday... We are hoping Marley Belle will be ready for a new home by Christmas.... If you think you might be interested in giving Marley Belle a forever home please submit an application. As always any donations are greatly appreciated.

Update

9/15/19

Marley Belle needs your help!!! She is having ups and downs right now still trying to regulate her BP and glucoses levels. She was up and moving around some in her cage yesterday even was able to eat on her own, however later on the day she aspirated and developed pneumonia. She is a fighter and she wants to live. She is a baby and has yet to be able to run and play. She has been sick for the majority of her short life. She is in critical care now. She also has developed pneumonia along with the symptoms from her liver shunt. They are treating her aggressively and she may need to go on oxygen. The Dogtors are not giving up on her and neither are we but we could use YOUR help. Her care is very costly and any donations you could make toward her care small or large would be a great help. She deserves a chance to live... Let’s all work together to give her that chance.

Update

9/14/19

Marley Belle had to be rushed to Blue Pearl last night for emergency care. She became very lathargic and was not responsive. As of today she is still not completely stable they are having difficulty keeping her glucose and BP regulated. She is recieving glucose and lactolouse thru enema they do not want to put anything in her stomach at this time. Hoping to get the glucose and BP regulated. She will be staying again tonight to be monitored and adjust her medications as needed. The Dogtor's plan is to first get her stabalized. If we are able to get her stablized the next steps would be to start medications oral and then evalute her to have the liver shunt surgery. She will however have to be on the medications for 3-4 weeks before she could even have surgery if she is a canadiate. This little girl hasn't even gotten her chance in life yet she needs your prayers and any donations you feel able to give. Hospitalization and surgery are very costly.

Initial bio

09/13/2019

Precious Marley Belle was surrendered by her owners this was a heartbreaking decision for them but they could no longer afford or care and wanted to give her the best chance of survival. Marley's Dogtors suspect a liver shunt. She will be going to one of UYR Dogtors today. Once evaluated we will get a referral to Blue Pearl where we hope she will be able to have liver shunt surgery and then move on with a normal life. Marley will need lots of prayers during her treatment and also if you are able to donate toward her care this would be greatly appreciated.... Liver Shunt care and surgery is very costly. Marley will not be ready for adoption for several months. But as always if you are interested in Marley please put in an application and once she is recovered we will begin reviewing applications.

Hello Everyone! It's been awhile since I posted an update and I wanted to let everyone know how I have been doing. Things are going good in my foster home. I no longer smell (Thanks goodness) the infection has cleared up. I have gained a little and now FM says I look much better. I still have very little hair but FM says I have peach fuzz and thats a good thing. I would really love to be able to find my furever home. I promise to be no trouble... FM mom says I get around really well considering I am blind and deaf... I even have started to enjoy being petted more... in the beginning when I first arrived it was very scary and a little painful to be picked up so I didn't want any part of that. But things are getting better. I still spend the majority of my day chilling in my bed. If you think you would be the pawfect home for me please fill out an application.

09/18/19

Hey Everybody... Tasha here I wanted to thank everyone for all your prayers. I went back to the dogtor today and he says my staph infection is all better and the yeast is getting better we are going to continue with my current care. My foster mom says I am a spoiled girl but I don't know what she is talking about she says everyone else feeds themself but I like for FM to feed me. Even though I can't see or hear anything I get along pretty good. I am able to let FM know what I need I just whine and she knows that I either want to be held, go to the bathroom or eat (LOL) She says its going to be a long time before my hair grows back so she has been putting lots of different shirts on me to keep me warm. So if you want a princess in your home. Please fill out an application.

09/04/19

Hello Everyone! It’s been a busy weekend. I arrived at my new foster home on Friday I have been getting lots of love and lots of baths. Foster Mom says the baths are to help my skin and hope my hair will grow back. FM is keeping Tshirts on me to cover me up so right now. Things are going pretty good mom says a smell a little better everyday not sure if it’s the medicated baths or the medicines I’m taking but so glad she thinks the smell is getting better. (Who wants to smell? Not me!) I have a super comfy bed to lay in. I spend the majority of the time chilling in my bed. But I have learned to maneuve thru the house pretty well despite being blind and deaf. I don not let my disabilities hold me back! Keep the prayers coming. If you are interested in adopting me please feel out an application.

Initial Bio 8/28/19

Tasha needs YOUR help!!!! She was adopted to a local home from another rescue (which is no longer in business) in 2016. She was in good health at that time. But something went very wrong. After recieveing a call from a concerned animal lover Clarksville Humane Society went out to do a welfare check and found Tasha in horrible condition and in need of medical attention. They were able to convince the owner to surrender her in order to save her life. United Yorkie Rescue was contacted to help get her the care she needs Tasha was immediately taken to a local veterinary clinic for medical care. She was covered in fleas…(the fleas had fleas). She has lost all of her hair and had no veterinary care since being adopted. At this point we know very little about her condition. Her teeth are severely infected they are bleeding and puss comes out at the slightest touch. The veterinary clinic has done lab work, and given her a medicated bath and treated for fleas. Unable to do much more at this time due to the fact we are in a holding pattern pending lab results in order to devise the best plan of action to help this sweet girl. At a minimum she will need routine vaccinations, a dental in which she will probably lose the majority of her teeth… We are hopeful the fleas are the only reason for hair loss and if this is the case then her hair should grow back once we get her medical needs taken care of and a regular healthy diet. All the techs love her… and believe it or not they say she is very friendly and is eating like a little pig. United Yorkie Rescue is on a mission to help this sweet girl live her best life.

Meet Tobias, a sweet little boy who was at a shelter for 7 weeks before he came into UYR. He is 9 years old, 7 pounds and is being fostered Near Clarksville TN

THANK YOU TO TOBIAS' RESCUE ANGELS!

Gail Johnson, Lisa-Marie Karr

Tobias was in a shelter in CA and his time was up he was set to be euthanized, however UYR stepped in to save this scared little boy. He had is first plane ride with a foster from CA. He was not a fan of the plane ride in the beginning but did settle down some as time went on, he is now in TN staying with his new foster mom who is getting to know him. This little boy is scared therefore he reacts in a snippy manner at times. We are hopeful that once he learns to trust people that he will let his guard down so that he can receive the love he deserves. Please keep Tobias in your prayers. Any donations are appreciated. Tobias is not quite ready to go to his forever home but you can place your applications if you think you might be interested in once we feel he is ready to go to his forever home.

THANK YOU TO ANNA BANANA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Wendy Fuhrmaneck

UPDATE BIO. 11/20/19. Hello everyone! I have had a busy week! Foster mom and dad took me to get spayed and this big lump removed from my mammary chain last. While the dogtor was working to remove the lump, he noticed that the entire mammary chain had some growths, so he removed the whole left side. He also found a couple of lumps on the right side, so he removed those, too.I was also suppose to get a full dental, but it had to be a limited to just a brief cleaning due to some complications while under anesthesia.Therefore, I still need to go back and get some more dental work once these big incisions heal. In spite of all that, I am still in good spirits since my foster mom and dad take such wonderful care of me and ensure I am still comfortable.

Now for the kind of bad news- the large mammary mass came back as cancerous. All but one of the others came back as non-cancerous. The dogtor believes that the removal of the cancerous mass has probably removed the risk of the cancer growing and spreading. I will need to be monitored for suspicious lumps for the rest of my days, but the future looks bright for me. Because of this, I muse remind all of you to spay your pups younger than me to limit the risk of developing mammary cancer.

I am getting use to these surgical recovery suits and the cone of shame that foster mom and daad keep on me while I heal, but I am looking forward to the day my stitches come out, and I can be the happy and loving pup I enjoy being. Stay tuned for more of my story and I continue to heal and return to my super sweet and loving self!

Initial Bio 10/27/19: Hello UYR community! My name is Anna Banana and I am he most recent pup to join the UYR Texas team. I am 8 years old and weigh a healthy 14.1 pounds. I was surrendered by my owner since I was a puppy because I they said they just couldn't get me potty trained. Mom kept trying, but dad said I had to go. Luckily mom found the UYR and I didn't have to go to the shelter. I was really scared when I first got to foster mom and dad's house, but they showed me a lot of love and attention from the start and I could see how happy the other pups in the house are. I have quickly warmed up to everyone in the house and now I just love to snuggle on the couch with foster mom or dad. I'm not picky, but just love the attention. Foster mom and dad think that my potty training issues could be because I did not get a lot of attention in my home. I shared the house with a couple other dogs and a few children. Because of this, I do get along well with other dogs and all humans. I am super calm and relaxed and just love spending time with a human. I've been with foster mom and dad for a week and have only had 2 accidents. One was because it was wet and rainy outside (I just didn't want to get all wet) and the other was just an accident. Otherwise, I like to go outside and do my business. I also enjoy just lying on the back porch and watching the day go by.

I went to see the dogtor this week to have my vaccinations and blood work done since I hadn't been to the vet in well over a year. Foster mom and dad were worried I might have some major health issues or maybe even heartworm because I have not been on any preventative, but my blood work came back perfect! I still need some vetting because I am not spayed, need a dental, and I have a mammary tumor. The dogtor says there is a 50% chance this is cancerous, so I will be getting scheduled to have it removed very soon. I will be seeing the dogtor again tomorrow to get all this scheduled. Assuming it is not cancerous, I should be ready to adopt after the surgery, dental, and spay. I came into rescue desperately needing a grooming and nail trim. Foster mom and dad got my nails done quickly and I just got a grooming yesterday. Just check out my pictures.....I have to say I am so cute!

I would be perfect in a home with some patient and understanding parents. I am good with other dogs and children, but don't play much. I am perfectly content on the couch or in a comfy bed. I sleep well through the night in bed with foster mom and dad, as well as my foster mates. I have demonstrated to foster mom and dad that with the proper attention, I am potty trained and prefer to go outside. I might do best in a home where someone is home most of the time. Foster mom and dad are currently working to get me puppy pad trained for the times when they can't be home with me. I have so much love to give and want to be loyal to a loving family. Once you meet me and I look deep into your eyes, you will know you have made the best choice to provide me with a loving home. Please fill out an application using the link below, or contact my foster parents at the email here on my profile.

Anxiously awaiting your application,

Anna Banana

BIO UPDATE: 09/08/19. Bunny's last oncology appointment was absolutely amazing! Dr Jesse did a thorough followup visit on Bunny with xray's, blood work, ultrasound and some fine needle aspirations on a few areas of concern. I am happy to say that EVERYTHING, and I mean EVERYTHING, is just perfect with this baby girl. Her lymph node is normal size, her xrays are just remarkable, her blood work is in on point, her ultrasound showed no areas of concern and she looks amazing on the outside a well.

Bunny has been on a very inexpensive chemo pill that she takes daily. She has had absolutely zero side effects on this medication and it looks as if we are seeing such amazing results...thank you God!! Bunny came to us from such a house of horror and endured such a horrific life but to look at her now, you would never imagine her life has such a horrid past.

This sweet baby is just so full of love and and such a joy to the household. She loves to play with her fur siblings and LOVES belly rubs. She is beautiful in her golden coat with red tinted highlights. A far cry from the baby that had hardly any fur with sores and scaly skin. Her anatomy is all back into place and no longer a tangled mess of "what is that"? When you add LOVE, it is amazing what you see as the result.

Being a former mill baby, Bunny has the most incredible love to give as well. She thrives on a touch which she has found to be a feeling she cannot do without for too terribly long of a time, that and a soft cozy bed!! But of course at nighttime, its that big cozy bed that holds everyone she craves. Although this sweet angel has cancer because of her abuse and neglect from mammary tumors, Bunny is still highly adoptable. Although she has been given a name for something that MAY take her life, she still has so much life to live and give.

IF you are the PERFECT home for Bunny, please contact me at yorkiefostertx@gmail.com. You simply MUST be able to continue to add love, and make sure her life is full of sunshine, belly rubs and touch. Please, complete your application at www.uyr.us if you are that special one...you will be blessed more than you could ever bless her.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Thank you UYR family!!!

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

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

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

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

9/15/19 Since Enanas surgery, we still aren't seeing what we had hoped for. Enana does have liver disease and gastrointestinal disease confirmed with her biopsies. Her bile acids have lowered some, but they are still high, hence, we have hepatic microvascular dysplasia. We are currently on 7 different meds to help her and protect the liver and GI tract as well. We have also had a couple of mild seizures. We will see the Internal Med specialist this upcoming week, so please keep her in your prayers. Her care has been extremely costly for our rescue so please, if possible, donate and share this lil princess's story. Bless you and thank you!!

8/31/19 We are still waiting for final biopsies on Monday. Enana is home. She is starting to eat now and on a med to help with her appetite. I will probably update her on the 3rd after her re-visit with the surgeon.

8/21/19 This little princess Enana, needs your prayers today. She's having a huge surgical procedure for biopsies of her liver and GI. She will be in the hospital for 3 days ��Please pray for her and for answers!

Surgeon just called. They are currently removing her gallbladder... keep the prayers coming! Serious surgery for a little one.

Enana is ICU. She's being spoiled because everyone just loves her. She will be there through Friday at least. Biopsies won't be back until next week. Meantime, prayers for a good recovery from this dangerous surgery and good biopsy results!!

8/9/19: Precious little 6 lb medical Enana has been in rescue now for one month today. Enana came to us from California after spending months at the vet with shaking, vomiting, sometimes even becoming ataxic, then ultimately presenting with elevated bile acids indicating possible liver shunt. Upon her arrival we made appointments for her nuclear scintigraphy and visit with the surgeon. Her scintingraphy was performed along with a specialized ultrasound. These tests indicated that there was not a visible shunt, however, there were issues noted within the gall bladder, the spleen was slightly enlarged and with reference to the liver they cannot rule out microvascular dysplasia or a hepatopathy/hepatitis. Issues within the liver can not be ruled out without the further testing by biopsy of the liver as well as additional biopsies of the GI. We need to get answers so we can ultimately give this little 6lb nugget her life back. Testing has already been expensive at $3k and additional testing will be another $3.5k. This pricing again is for running diagnostics and biopsies and not including any surgical intervention if that may be needed once answers are found. Please remember that we have quite a few medical babies in our care and we are so blessed with donations that you may be able to extend to her care. Without you, this is not possible and we are just beyond blessed by our donors!! Once this baby is well we will address her future, but please help us help Enana (pronounced E-nana) at www.uyr.us. Much love to you all!!!

INITIAL BIO. 7/14/2019: Sweet little 7yr old, 6 lb Enana is flying here tomorrow from California. Enana has spent the majority of the past two months under veterinary care due to a multitude of issues. Finally, a bile acid test was performed which proved high bile acids and is indicative of an issue with the liver and a possible liver shunt.

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


To date we've spent $9669.83 on Enana's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $2316.00 in donations.
Please donate!

THANK YOU TO PEPPER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

8/7/19: Hi everyone, Pepper here! I’m am doing so good in my foster home. My eye that we thought we might have to take out has been healing great after some surgery by Dr. Sam! It’s 85% healed. My diabetes is under control and I’m looking great. I’m scheduled to have a dental this week. Not really excited about that but... excited to have a sparkling mouth. My foster mom says I’m such a good girl. I love to go outside and do my business and just walk around in the sun. I get along with all my foster sisters and brother. Life is good now just can’t wait to find my forever home.

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

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

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

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


To date we've spent $6453.92 on Pepper's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1879.47 in donations.

Ruby, aka Sweet Pea, is a sweet 3 year old, 3 pound little girl being fostered in Leander, TX. She is Heartworm positive and also in heat so her adoption will be delayed until she has completed her treatment.

THANK YOU TO RUBY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

THANK YOU TO RUBY'S FACEBOOK DONORS!

BIO UPDATE. 11/16/19. Hello UYR Community. Ruby here again to give you a little snip-it on my life here with my foster mom and dad.I had a big week and am now recovering from a little time at the dogtor.I went in on Tuesday to get spayed and have my teeth cleaned. I think someone needs to better explain what teeth cleaning means because I thought the dogtor would just brush my teeth extra good and just give me some mouth wash. Boy, was I wrong!He did get all the tarter off my teeth, but he kept a few of them as souvenirs! I guess I shouldn't complain too much because I sure can whistle now! But I still in a little pain, and only eating soft food, which I do like. My spay also went very well, and now I have a scar on my belly that foster dad says just makes me look tough. Not sure if that was the look I was going for, but he sure seems to like it.

Before surgery, the dogtor was worried about my cough being an indication of heart failure due to these darn heartworms, but he did an xray of my chest to be sure there were no issues before putting me under. All turned out wonderfully. So the good news is that I appear to be moving through the heartworm treatment very well. I am scheduled to get my first injection treatment the first week of December. It is scary because I am told it is painful and will make me feel bad for some time.

Well, hopefully foster dad is right about my scar, and it does toughen me up for the next stage of heartworm treatment. I won't be available for adoption until my heartworm treatment is complete. So, just stay posted for updates on my progress!

Update 10/27/19: Hello everyone! I just wanted to get on here and let everyone know how special you've made me feel. I have had a lot of folks contact my foster mom and dad concerned about my condition. A few have filled out applications to adopt me and some even made donations! The UYR community sure knows how to make a girl feel special.

I have been with foster mom and dad for a month now and really getting comfortable with the routine around here. The food is great, the love endless, the daily visits from the dog walker much appreciated, and hanging out with my foster mates really keeps me from getting lonely while mom and dad are at work. I am in my second month of the heartworm treatment and still battling this cough. I have an appointment tomorrow with the dogtor to address this again and for a quick follow up on my treatment. I still have several more months to go before I am ready to be adopted, but I am looking forward to the day where I get a special home to show me the love and attention I deserve. I do have to tell you potential adopters a little secret. Foster mom and dad introduced my to this thing they call a bully bone. Not sure what it is exactly, but I do know that I absolutely LOVE them. So much so, that I try to take them from my foster mates and carry as many as I can in my mouth around the house to be sure I get them all. Foster mom and dad don't like this much, so they try to take them away from me; which I really don't like. I guess it's for my own good, but if I had it my way, I would eat these all day long.

So my ideal home will be one that has an endless supply of bully bones and someone with me most of the day to make sure I don't over do it with them. I do get along with the other pups in the house, but I would be fine as the only one receiving all the attention. Due to my small size, I can't be in a home with children under the age of 12. If you think you are the one for me, please fill out an application using the link at the bottom, or contact foster mom and dad directly at the email listed below. Please give them a little time to respond, as they both work and keep pretty busy with me and my three other pups in the house.

INITIAL BIO: 09/29/19. Hello UYR fans! My name is Ruby, and I come to the United Yorkie Rescue a very sick baby. I was surrendered by a loving home that recently purchased me and quickly realized after a trip to the dogtor that my treatment was going to be very intensive and costly. They decided the best hope for the care I need was to allow the UYR to take control and get me healthy.

I am heartworm positive, in desperate need of a dental, spay, microchip, and have a chronic cough. All this, and I am only 3 years old! Foster mom and dad got me to the vet quickly to begin a treatment plan.Due to my only 3.1lb. size, the treatment will be long and invasive. The cough could be a symptom of my heartworm, as the cough medication has not been overly helpful. The heartworm treatment will be at a minimum five months, according to the dogtor. I could not be scheduled for my dental or spay because I am in heat, too. Talk about being dealt a losing hand!

Even though I have all these health issues, foster mom and dad say I am the sweetest pup they have come across so far. I love to snuggle next to one of them and occasionally like to roll over for a belly rub. But know that if you stop too soon, I will reach up with my paw and push your hand back toward my belly. Just feels so darn good. I am a good eater, great with the other dogs in the house, friendly to people, and best of all house trained! I don't bark, unless the house chihuahua gets all of us started. But who could resist to join the celebration? At least that's what I think it is. I also love to lay with my back to foster mom or dad at night in the warm and cozy bed and sleep through the night. I will be looking forward to meeting some new folks once I have completed my treatment and am perfectly healthy.

Stay tuned for more updates as my treatment continues.

Tibbe
Texas
Tibbe

Meet Tibbe, a handsome 12 year old Yorkie boy who weighs 7 pounds. He is being fostered in Round Rock, TX.

THANK YOU TO TIBBE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Behnaz Memarzadeh

9/3/19 Initial Bio: Tibbe arrived into the arms of UYR on September 3, 2019, a happy little bundle of curly hair! Tibbe was a breeder early in his life, but due to a lucky fortune found himself with a breeder who wound up in a position where she had to give up all her pups to rescue organizations! At 10 months of age, Tibbe was adopted and had a loving home. Sadly, his person has reached a level of heath where she's became unable to care for Tibbe, and knowing he deserved better, reached out to us.

Tibbe is 12 years old, and has a few ailments, but is a happy, lively boy. He bonded with his foster mom immediately, and is loving the attention, play time and walks. Tibbe has the typical luxating patella, that we see in Yorkies, but does not appear to be in any discomfort. He also has a collapsing trachea that is not giving him trouble at this time, either. Aside from needing a dental pretty soon, Tibbe has no other immediate needs. He's up-to-date on his vaccinations, and is HW free.

This precious little boy is a total sweetheart!

Adoption Pending

To date we've spent $358.97 on Tibbe's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $20.00 in donations.

Virginia
Bear

Bear is estimated 5-year-old, 10 pound Yorkie boy being fostered near Boydton , VA.

Initial bio 9/26/19: Bear is up to date on all shots , neutered and microchipped. He's going to make someone a wonderful pet. Bear would benefit from having another fur baby to play with. He LOVES to play with his Foster doggie Brother Rhett Muttler. A family with older children who would play with him would be great. He likes to soft bite your hand while playing.

Bear will mark his territory so he wears a belly band while indoors. He doesn't mind. He loves the outdoors and will run out the door if you're not watching so a fenced in yard would be ideal for this energetic boy. Bear loves to cuddle in bed with you. He is an absolutely delightful doggie. He isn’t a picky eater and adores treats. We are working on leash walking. If you think Bear is the one for your family or have any questions.

THANK YOU TO BELLA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Susan Tackett, Beverly Craven

Inital Bio 11/2/19

Bella is an 8lb 1½ year old Yorkie mix. She is an absolute love bug. She loves attention and to snuggle with her human. She gets along very well with other dogs her size and would prefer a playmate she can wrestle and sleep with. Bella is good about pottying outside as long as you take her out regularly. She hasn’t learned to tell you if she has to potty. She is not a fan of using a crate but will sleep quietly through the night in one after she settles down and knows her human is close. She would prefer to sleep with you in the bed. She’s a good eater and loves treats. Bella is a little nervous riding in the car and is good with a leash. She will require a fenced in yard to keep her safe. She also gets along with young children. Bella would be best with a human that is home most of the day to be with her.

Ashley Cagle, Patrick Cagle, Angie Cagle, Anne Broadfoot, Terri Horton Moore, Celeste Bichey

UPDATE Bio: 09/11/19. Lily is the tiniest three pound little girl with a really big health issue. Lily has PLE, Protein Losing Enteropathy. She came cross country to United Yorkie Rescue because her foster mom has experience with the disease. Recommended for euthanasia last January, it's been nine months and she's still with us.

Lily requires periodic vet checks and a rather expensive diet and supplement program. Combined, she's avoiding the worst symptoms of the disease that will eventually lead to the end of her life. With careful attention, Lily may live a few years and that's our goal.

Please consider donating to Lily's vet bills. The blood tests tell us how to proceed and keep her comfortable

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


To date we've spent $1186.59 on Lily WV's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $925.00 in donations.

UUPDATE BIO: 09/11/19. Merry, the tiny three pound senior found collapsed on the streets of Brooklyn last December, is still with us. After spending months building up her strength, she had three surgeries. She had multiple mammary tumors removed, a spay, and her last teeth removed.

Fifteen years old Merry is doing well but cannot seem to gain weight. She gets a very good diet and it seems to keep her going. Foster mom cooks for her and gives her Manuka honey and golden paste to heal her tiny body. Soon she will return to the vet to see if her tumors came back.

Please consider donating to sweet little Merry. Her surgeries were costly and she needs a recheck.

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

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

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

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


To date we've spent $1670.32 on Merry's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1590.00 in donations.

Coco

Coco WI

Meet Coco, a sweet 11 pound, 4 year old Yorkie girl being fostered in Wales, WI.

11/19/19 Coco is a wonderful dog! Very smart, doing great with the potty situation. Just loves to cuddle, fetch her soft bone and play tug with her rope.

10/31/19 update Coco has been in her foster home for 2 weeks and is doing amazing. She is telling me when she has to go out. She has a little anxiety when we leave which might be a problem if she is an only dog. Very much a Velcro dog just follows me where ever I go.

Initial Bio 10/19/19: Coco is a very sweet Yorkie girl who loves everybody - human or fur. She has lived with children and is very agile - she would be a great agility dog if someone had the time and talent to teach her. We are working on the housetraining but she is doing well so far with few accidents. Coco would do great in a multi-dog family or in a home where her parents are not gone for long hours. She can also be a cuddlebug, just happy sitting next to you.


To date we've spent $901.21 on Coco WI's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Leo

Leo

Meet Leo, an adorable 1 year old, 8 pound little Yorkie Mix being fostered near Madison, WI.

UPDATE 10/20/19: Leo has been with us for two weeks and he is a delight. He loves to snuggle and is learning sit and stay when it's treat time. We need to work on his excitement when it's meal time so he isn't jumping while he is waiting for his dish. There have been a few accidents but we are working on timing and need to teach him to let us know when he has to go out.

Leo gets along well with small dogs and loves to play. He has met a neighbors larger dog and does initially bark but relaxes into his presence as we do our walk around the block. I don't believe he needs to be an only dog but would be fine being the king of the house. If there are other dogs in the house it's best if they are his size.

INITIAL BIO: !0/05/17. Leo is an 8.2 pound, 21 month old Morkie (Maltese/Yorkie mix). He is a very sweet, cuddly and playful boy. He is good with children and small breed dogs, but large dogs are a "no". He has had no interaction with cats. Leo is having some issues with potty training. Medical issues have been ruled out with testing conducted by both the previous owner and the rescue. We are working with him as this may be more of a behavioural issue. Leo would do best in a home with another small dog compatible to his size.

Adoption Pending

To date we've spent $49.48 on Leo's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $49.48 in donations.
