Meet Gracie, a small sweet 10 year old little girl. She weighs about 4 pounds and is being fostered in Mobile, Alabama

THANK YOU TO GRACIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Update 4/3/2015

Gracie is a 10 year old, 5.6 lbs Yorkie female being fostered in Mobile, AL

Gracie is a very loving and sweet senior. If you are looking for a loyal little lap dog, she would be the one to pick! Her demeanor is excellent and she doesn't have an aggressive bone in her body. Though she did run toward some birds under the bushes in the yard this week. With no teeth the vet has her on a soft food diet. Her perfect forever home would be one that has a stay at home mom or dad. Gracie is not crate trained and does not like to be left alone. Potty training is almost over she still has accidents occasionally. She is very quiet and will only bark if left on the sofa alone. This little lady loves human contact and wants to be with her human all the time. She shadows her foster mom from room to room. Car rides aren't a problem. She goes everywhere with her foster mom in a soft side carrier that looks like a purse. She sleeps in her foster parents' bed with her head on a pillow. So if you are in search of a loyal, super sweet loving lap dog to spoil, GRACIE would be the one!

Update 03/05/15: Gracie is a 10 year old, 5 lbs Yorkie female being fostered in Mobile, AL

Gracie is a super sweet and loving little lady. She loves attention and is very eager to please. Since she has no teeth there is a strict soft food diet. The only time she will bark is if she gets left sitting on the sofa and wants to get down. So she is very quiet by nature. Her perfect forever home would have either a stay at home mom or dad because she does not like to be left alone. Car rides are a breeze and she loves to be on the go. Her foster mom takes her everywhere in a soft side carrier that looks like a purse. Potty training is almost over. At night she sleeps in the bed with her head on the pillow next to her foster parents. If you are looking for a total snuggle bunny that will shadow you from room to room and sleep next to you at night.......GRACIE is the ONE for you!

Update 02/09/15: Gracie has been in the comfort of a home setting with her foster family for a month now. Her biopsy results came back with great news. The growth was benign with instructions to watch for future gowths. Her potty training is going really well. She still doesn't care for being In a crate. So she doesn't need to be left alone for more than an hour or two at the most. If you are looking for a total snuggle bunny and serious lap dog that will follow you from room to room, she is the one for you!

Update 01-25-15: Gracie is a 10 year old, 4 lbs Yorkie female being fostered in Mobile, AL.

Gracie had a vet visit yesterday and came home today. She is now microchipped, spayed, and completely tooth free! Eating will be a breeze with soft food. The vet removed a mammary growth and we are waiting to hear the results of that. Fingers crossed it won't be any big deal. Now that she has had two weeks to settle in her personality is really showing. She is a fast learner and has adjusted well to home life with her foster family. It took 3 days for her to show her voice and finally bark so yes, she is a quiet little girl. Gracie is blind in her left eye and has a cataract in the right eye limiting her vision but her hearing is excellent. She will walk on a leash with a harness if she can lead. Potty training is going very well. She does not like being put in a crate though she is learning a carrier isn’t a bad thing when going on a car ride. Foster mom also has a soft side carrier that really looks like a purse that Gracie prefers to go places in. Gracie is a little snuggle bunny and loves to sleep in the bed with her head on the pillow next to her foster mom. Though she is a senior she still likes to play and has no problem with cats. The perfect home for Gracie would be a quiet one with NO CHILDREN under 14 in the home due to her age and small size.She is only 5 lbs. Gracie also needs a stay at home mom or dad as she does not like to be left alone and will follow you from room to room. Could this be you?

Initial Bio 1/8/15: Gracie was just rescued out of a high kill shelter today. She is spending her first night in the warmth and comfort of her new foster home, rather than in a cage in the shelter. She will be taken to the vet as soon as possible. She needs all her vaccinations, a dental, and possibly a spay. We hope the vet gives us a good report on this adorable little girl.

Watch for pictures and more information after her vet visit and as her foster parents get to know her better.

Astro
California
Astro

Astro is a 3 year old Yorkie weighing a healthy 12 pounds who is being fostered in Fremont, CA. He needs a quiet, single owner home with no children and no other dogs.

THANK YOU TO ASTRO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Adrienne Talbert, Aaron Ko and Jenny Kuang

Update 02/21/15: Astro is doing great! he has come a long way. He is more outgoing, and not as afraid of visitors. He enjoys being with the rest of the pack more, but still likes his alone time in my bedroom. He is a cute little guy, and can be quite comical at times. He would make someone a wonderful companion.

Update 11/16/14: Astro has been with me now since April. He mostly hangs out in my bedroom, not with the rest of the pack. He will play with my little one, Peanut, but mostly ignores my two older, bigger Yorkies. He would do great in a quiet home, being the only dog, with one owner, no children. He can be quite comical at times. He loves and needs his daily walks. He is a great walker. He needs a strong leader who is able to correct his behaviors, as sometimes when seeing another dog, he acts up. He is very shy with strangers.

Update 07/29/14: Update: Astro has had his teeth cleaned, and did not have to have any pulled. Astro would do best in a home as an only dog, with his person. He is still uncertain when meeting new people. It takes him time to get to know someone. However, he has bonded with me, and he did this quickly. So I know he will quickly bond to a new owner. He has great potty habits, using the doggie door. He is a bigger yorkie, but still very cute. They come in all sizes, as we all know! He is a great walker, and will run, also. But foster mom does not run, so he has to slow down for me! But if his new owner was a runner, this would be a perfect match!

Update 04/13/14: Update: Astro is a healthy boy, at 12.2 lbs. He will need a dental. He has adjusted well in his foster home, his potty habits are perfect. He has already learned how to use the doggie door, he is one smart boy! Unfortunately, he is very fearful of strangers. We are working on this, and I do see some improvements already! He is a great little walker. The perfect home for him would be a quiet one, where he is the only dog. No kids as the excitement would be too much for him.

Initial Bio: Meet Astro! He is 3 1/2 years old, 10 1/2 lbs. and all Yorkshire Terrier. He is an owner surrender. So far he gets along with the other dogs here. He is house trained and will be learning how to use a doggie door. He is being fostered in the Bay Area. More updates to come as I learn more about him.


To date we've spent $433.34 on Astro's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $465.00 in donations.

Presley
California
Presley

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

THANK YOU TO PRESLEY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Holly Stavis, Cynthia Duranti, Holly Stavis Patricia Acosta, Amina Masic

and Ross, Chico, Tyson and Medo, Fabian Arellano

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

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

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

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


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

Updated bio 4/10/15 Hello again, it's me, Boo Bear the best dog ever. I am about 7 years old and the vet told my foster mom I weigh 8 pounds. I am being fostered in Leesburg, FL, and life is really good.

Have you seen my new pictures? I just got groomed. And oh boy, don't you think I am just the handsomest, cutest little fellow you've ever seen? I can't tell you how long it's been since the last time anyone cared enough to get me all groomed up and fussed over. My foster mom and dad sure love me. It feels so good to be loved and cared for.

My hair is growing in from my awful time with those terrible pesky fleas. Thank goodness they are all gone. The vet said I am still a little too skinny and I should get some fish oil in my food to help my skin. I sure hope it tastes good, but I like to eat everything I'm given. I get a lot of food to eat in my foster home and now I'm not hungry all the time, so I figure I'll be at my perfect weight soon enough.

I am having so much fun in my foster home. I even get to sleep with my foster mom and dad on their bed. Mostly what I really want is a forever home of my own. I am really a good boy. I am mostly house trained, I eat all my food and never leave anything over, and I love car rides. I like going outside a lot either in a fenced yard or being walked on a leash.

Because of my recent surgery it's best that I go to a home with kids over the age of 14. I get along with everyone and will love you unconditionally. I hope you will want me for your forever pup.

I am still hoping for more people to help the angels at United Yorkie Rescue, who saved me, pay for my surgery. If you can find it in your heart to donate a few dollars maybe soon we can pay for the whole thing, we are so close. Please Help.

If you think you would like me to be your forever pup and give you a life of puppy kisses, please fill out an adoption application for me and give me my happily ever after.

Updated Bio 4/1/15 Boo Bear is the sweetest, most loving 7 year old pup. Boo weighs 9 pounds. He is being fostered in Leesburg, FL.

Hello, my name is Boo Bear and I thought it was time you heard it directly from me. That’s because I can use my mouth now. My surgeon told me just yesterday I can now go back to my regular activity. I am not totally healed, but really close.

I don’t know what I did to end up on the street alone and hurt. I only know someone hurt me real bad. They hit me in my jaw hard and then they didn’t want me anymore. It didn’t make sense because I am really a good boy. I just want to love everyone and give kisses. Maybe it was because they didn’t take care of the fleas that were biting me and making my skin itch all the time. When I was picked up by the animal control I heard the word flea dermatitis when they saw my skin. By the time animal control found me wandering the streets I was so skinny because it hurt so much to eat. That is when the nice doctor who was taking care of me saw that my jaw was broken a lot.

It was the best day ever when the angel from United Yorkie Rescue came and got me from the shelter and took me to another wonderful doctor who fixed up my mouth. Finally the pain was gone and hooray the fleas too. That’s because the nice people at the shelter helped me with that and put some medicine on me to kill them.

I am now in my foster home and they really love me. I get to sleep on the bed and eat a lot of good food, since I am a little skinny, and I even have a nice foster sister to play with. I mostly potty outside and I am a great car rider. My foster mom told me I will be getting groomed soon, whatever that means, but she said I will be very beautiful. Well, even boys want to be beautiful. And my hair is growing back in from those nasty fleas. Best of all I know what it feels like to be safe and loved and cared for.

BUT LISTEN TO THIS… my surgery was expensive and United Yorkie Rescue has been trying really hard to get all the money to pay for it. We still need a little more. I hope you think I am worth it and will help my rescue angels pay for the surgery that saved my life. Without it I would have slowly starved to death because I couldn’t eat or chew. Please help and donate so my surgery can be all paid for. Even one dollar will help, and my foster mom and me will send you back a nice thank you letter.

And Hey, don’t forget I am ready to go to my forever home pretty soon. If you think you would like to have the best boy in the world who will love you forever, fill out an adoption application just for me.

Thanks for helping me to get well and for reading my story.

Love and Puppy Kisses, Boo Bear

Updated Bio 3/25/15 Boo Bear has settled very comfortably into his foster home. He will have to remain in there for about two months while he heals from his major surgery. What a trooper he is about that, too. He have become very devoted to his foster mom and dad and just wants to be with them and loved.

He knows he can't run and play yet, so just being with his foster mom and dad has made him so happy. It is sad to see him wanting to join in the fun and that will happen, but for now we can only hold and cuddle him and give him all the love he never had and so badly wants.

Boo sleeps all night. He likes to go out and be walked, though he must be leashed at all times and kept restrained and quiet. He is a good eater, gets along with the other dogs in the home, and seems to not bother the cats, but we are not quite sure of that yet. Boo is not yet fully house trained and his foster mom and dad are working very hard on that. He is getting it. He's not there yet, but soon.

Without Boo's surgery he would have never made it. He could barely eat and was in great pain. He also was full of fleas, and even through he couldn't eat they were eating him.

Boo's surgery was very expensive and UYR is desperately working to raise money to pay for it. We are halfway there, and we need your help to meet our goal of $1,500. Please every dollar will help us to pay for Boo Bear's life saving surgery. Help us help him.

Although he will need to be in his foster home for another month or two we are taking applications. This is one loving, sweet dog, and anyone who is lucky enough to get to adopt him will be getting a companion and devoted buddy for life.

Initial bio 3-18-15 Boo Bear found himself in a high kill shelter sad, alone, and in pain from a severely broken jaw. He was rescued by United Yorkie Rescue just today and immediately taken to the surgeon for an evaluation. Our rescue angel said he was so sweet and loving in the car ride to the surgeon. What a trooper, in so much pain and still giving love and kisses.

The surgeon said his jaw was broken in two places and had been like that for at least 2 or 3 weeks. Imagine the pain he was in and the suffering he endured and no one to help him until today. The surgical vet did the best he could to repair the breaks, but it was too old to repair, so he removed the loose bone, took out a tooth, and neutered Boo.

Boo Bear will stay at the vet's until Friday when he will picked up and taken to his new foster home. There he will continue to heal with the utmost love and care. Boo Bear will also need some medication to help with his skin condition, most likely caused by fleas and neglect.

Boo Bear's surgery was very expensive. It is estimated to be about $2000 and United Yorkie Rescue is reaching out to you to help us pay for it. It is only through your generosity we can help dogs like Boo live a long and healthy life. Boo deserved this second chance. Please help us pay for his surgery so we continue to help Boo Bear and others like him who continue to need us.

Boo's bio will be updated as soon as his foster parents speak to the surgeon and know more about his healing process and his ongoing care. Once he gets to his foster home and settles in and his foster parents get to know him, there will be more about sweet Boo Bear coming.


To date we've spent $1500.00 on Boo Bear's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1870.00 in donations.

Bubba
Florida
Bubba

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

THANK YOU TO BUBBA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Wendy Erichsen, Amara Waterman, Heather Ozuna, Jane St. John, Cheryl Scrupski, Cindy Hsueh, Sandy Pagnotta, Craig Seal, Kelsey Leslie, Holly Kline, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Michele Lofgren, Traci Vanover, Amy Chernault, Kathleen Fisher, Joanne Vogel, Carol Gostomski, Leslie Diaz,Katalin Nagy-Takio, Missy Wilcher, DeAnn Deutsch, Malena Cueva, Rita Harris, Gale Young, Shelly Ford, Phanphatsorn Disaphanurat, Shawndel Underwood, Betty Carter, Thomas Tighue, Barbara Carvalho, Anne Faasse, Eliana Tardio, Irene and Peter Havas, Sheila Landis, Sonia Laboy, K Dionne

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Buba Rescue Ride

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

Buba

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

Here is a video of Bubba today: Buba 1

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


To date we've spent $272.89 on Bubba's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1067.00 in donations.

Gigi
Florida
Gigi

Initial Bio 4-7-15 Gigi is a sweet girl. She is 7 years old and weighs 12 pounds. Gigi is being fostered in Jacksonville, FL.

This sweet girl was sadly surrendered by her owner who could to longer take care of her. She is very well behaved. She is house trained, sleeps all night in her doggie bed, eats great, rides nicely in the car, and gets along with everyone, kids, other dogs, and even cats.

Gigi needs to have her teeth taken care of and she really does need to lose a few pounds, but she is otherwise just a perfect dog. She would be great for a stay at home person or a family with children over the age of 7.

With her curly hair Gigi looks more like an adorable YorkiePoo than a Yorkie. A more perfect dog you won't find anywhere.

There will be more coming on Gigi as her foster mom gets to know her better.

Jack Jack
Florida
Jack Jack

Initial Bio 4-18-15 Jack Jack the puppy is double the cuteness so we are calling him Jack Jack. He just came to us today. Jack Jack is 10 months old and weighs 11 pounds. He is being fostered in West Palm Beach, FL.

Jack Jack has already gone through so much in his very short life. He has a fracture near his front elbow that appears to be too old to fix. He does seem to limp on it sometimes. We are not sure if there is any pain connected to this injury.

Jack Jack was such a tangled mess when he was in the shelter that he had to have a complete shave down. He will need a bath and a trip to the vet very soon.

There will be so much more on Jack Jack coming soon. Keep watching for it.

Koda

Initial Bio 4-23-15. This is one bundle of cuteness. Meet Koda our little 5-month-old shorkie (Shih Tzu/Yorkie Mix). He is 7.2 pounds of adorable sweetness. Koda is being fostered in North Port, FL.

Koda was bought to bring comfort to a woman who was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer. Sadly her cancer had progressed to a point where she could no longer be around any animals, and they had to find Koda a new forever family.

This bundle of energy is all puppy. He is very active and plays rough like most puppies do. He loves to run around and play until he tires himself out. He will stop, sleep for a while, and then he is ready to play some more. His foster parent said he is very sweet, and so far has not barked or shown a mean bone in his little body. He just wants to play and run around the fenced backyard.

Koda loves to be held and cuddled when he is not playing. He is crate trained and does great riding in the car.

Like most puppies he is not yet fully house trained. He is still learning to do his business outside. Koda loves the attention of his people and would do better in a house with no more than one other young dog for him to play with.

Please keep in mind that Koda is a very young dog and he will need someone who can most likely give him a 15-year commitment to be his forever parent.

Because of his small size Koda cannot go to a home with children under the age of 14.

Maggie Sue

Maggie Sue after haircut -how cute is SHE?
Florida
Maggie Sue

Maggie Sue is a 5 years old, 6 1/2 pound female Yorkie who is being fostered in The Villages, FL.

THANK YOU TO MAGGIE SUE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Cecelia Newago

UPDATED BIO 04/22/2015: MAGGIE SUE is 5 years old and weighs 6 lbs. She is being fostered in The Villages, FL.

Maggie Sue came into UYR with her father Louie Lou who has since been adopted into a wonderful forever home. After being in the same foster home for over 3 months, it was evident that they both would be happier if they were separated into different foster homes. Since that time, Maggie is definitely more out-going and engaged.

Maggie was an Owner Surrender and her health had been neglected for a long time; although she lost the remaining 7 teeth she had, she certainly doesn’t have any trouble eating dry kibble; and now her little tongue peeps out ~ so cute! She has a tendency to be on the shy side and initially would cower to the floor when approached to be picked up. She no longer does that and is definitely coming out of her shell inasfar as her timid nature. She also seems much happier and less stressed. The gorgeous long and thick coat she came in with has been trimmed into a puppy cut and she is just beautiful. She has the typical blue/gold colors associated with well-bred yorkies.

Maggie is house-trained to use the wee-wee pad, which she prefers; however, she will also go outside when left out long enough. She is not yet completely leash-trained, but we are working on that. Maggie loves attention and seems to seek it out more and more; she also loves to follow her FM from room-to-room, and will jump up and down to be picked up. She prefers to lie beside you instead of being held, but that could change with time. She is a very sweet, loving little girl who only wants to be someone’s Pretty Little Princess – could that be you?

PLEASE NOTE: Due to her small size, Maggie cannot go into a home with children under the age of 14 years old.

UPDATED BIO 03/19/2015: MAGGIE SUE is 5 years old and weighs 6 ½ lbs. She is being fostered in The Villages, FL.

Maggie Sue is Louie Lou’s daughter, and they came into UYR together. At the beginning, Foster Mom thought they were bonded and should be adopted together. However, after being in the same foster home for over 3 months, it is evident that they are happier since they were separated into different foster homes.

Maggie was an Owner Surrender and her health had been neglected for a long time; she lost the remaining 7 teeth she had and now her little tongue peeps out ~ so cute! She is on the shy side and has probably always been submissive to her very alpha father. Now that they are in different foster homes, Maggie is coming out of her shell and seems much happier and less stressed. The gorgeous long and thick coat she came in with has been trimmed and she is just beautiful. She has the typical blue/gold colors associated with well-bred yorkies.

Perla

Perla

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Reese

Reese

Reese is an adorable Yorkie boy who is 7 years old and weighs 7.5 lbs. Reese is being fostered in Bunnell, FL.

THANK YOU TO REESE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Nancy Stanley

UPDATED BIO 04/20/2015; Hi! My name is Reese; I am a 7 year old male yorkie who weighs 7.5 lbs. I am being fostered in Bunnell, FL.

When I first came to my Foster Mom's house, I was pretty scared and not sure what to do or what was expected of me. My FM kept trying to talk to me ~ but I talked louder! I would bark non-stop and because my new human didn't understand what I was saying, I would also nip and growl; but I was just really scared and didn't know how to tell her stuff. Come to find out, she figured me out..she just kept giving me hugs and lots of love and realized that when I bark sometimes, it meant I was telling her I wanted her to pet me or pick me up.

FM has other dogs here which I don't mind, but would rather sit on her lap all day long...so now I'm not so scared. I even get to sleep with FM, and a couple of my yorkie sisters, but I don't mind. When I "talk", it sometimes sounds like a growl, but FM talks to me and I'm fine. I just am trying to get her attention ~ guess I just like lots of attention, lots of lap time and loads of love. I really like it when she picks me up and only gives me attention.

I only eat dry dog food and I eat in my own space since I like to steal the other dogs' food. I'm not so good with sharing toys either, I growl and don't like to give them back, but we are working on that. I don't like crates at all. My perfect home would be one with maybe a lady like FM who is home all day; FM thinks that would be best so they could be consistent like FM is with my training....... like teaching me not to growl or bark when I want attention, and teaching me to wait before eating so that I can learn proper puppy manners which I apparently missed in my former home.

I am really very smart and catch onto new things pretty fast. I don't like men so much, especially ones with hats. I would really prefer to be the only doggie in the house. FM said that I need someone who can be strong enough so that I don't wrap her around my paws. She said that she thinks that is what happened in my former home, and that's not a good thing. I am happiest when I know exactly what my human expects from me and I really want to be well-mannered, I just need a few more lessons about that since I must have missed that as a puppy. So...if you have a lot of love and attention and time to give to me, I'll be your best friend!

Updated Bio 03/02/15:Reese is a sweetheart. At this time his Foster Mom feels like he is not quite ready for adoption. He is still food and toy aggressive. It appears that currently out of nowhere, he will growl and potentially nip. FM is able to calm him down in time, but she feels he may possibly bite if provoked or scared.

Reese does get along with the other dogs. He sleeps with FM and the 4 others and is quite a lap dog. He does not like men in hats. He loves to jump up and loves attention. He does understand "no, get down and stop". He is also house trained ~ yeah! FM will continue working with him on a daily basis. At this point it is unsure what length of time it will take her to correct these bad behaviors. Reese most likely needs a home with an strong alpha role in his life, so he won't revert back to these inappropriate behaviors.

Updated BIO 02/01/2015: Reese is an adorable, Yorkie who is 7 years old, and weighs 7.5 lbs. Reese is being fostered in Bunnell, FL. Sadly, Reese landed in a shelter when his former owner surrendered him because they could not afford to give him the care and life he deserves. The shelter reached out to United Yorkie Rescue for help in finding Reese a new home that will be a perfect as he is adorable.

So far, Reese doesn’t like men wearing hats and being inside a crate. He also has some food aggression issues we are working on but currently he is being fed apart from his foster siblings. He likes having things on “his terms” but this could be a fear response from being in a shelter environment. HIs foster mom is working very hard with Reese to resolve these issues.

He loves his person and is very much a “lap dog.” Despite some of his behavioral “issues” he is sweet and very easy to love. He loves belly rubs and is getting lots of one on one time to make sure he knows he is safe and loved.

Initial Bio 01/31/15: Reese arrived here tonite..he's happy to be out of the shelter, he's quite the chick magnet to my 4 little girls, they love him. Poor Lil guy he is sound asleep and wanted to say goodnight. A big thanks to Lee Filer for getting him to me. More updates to follow after he settles in. He will be a great lil guy for any family..he is looking for love.


To date we've spent $182.25 on Reese's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $27.25 in donations.

Sailor

Sailor

Sailor is approximately 9 years old and is an adorable but timid 7 pound little Yorkie. He is being fostered in Palm Coast, FL.

THANK YOU TO SAILOR'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Jerry and Renae Sutley, Michael Davis, Catherine Hurlbut, Maryanne Ware, Nestor Sanchez, Andrea Dyal, Nestor Sanchez, Nestor Sanchez, Silvia Palmieri, Nestor Sanchez

Updated bio 3/4/15. Although Sailor gets along with other pups in the household, he wants to be the Alpha dog. He is now approximately 7 lbs; more than the other dogs in the household, he lets the other dogs know he is in charge. Sailor has a very sensitive stomach and is allergic to beef and chicken. He does well on Blue Buffalo Fish and Brown rice for Small Breeds hard food. Due to his obvious lack of care in the past he has had to have most of his teeth removed and now his little tongue hangs out one side of his mouth which just makes him even cuter. Sailor has suffered several seizures while in foster care. There is no apparent "trigger" for these seizures but his vet feels no medication is needed unless they begin to get closer together. Sailor does not take to men as well as he does women. He tolerates men, but prefers a woman as his primary caregiver. His forever home would absolutely require a female in the home! Sailor has long powerful legs and if he has a chance to run out the door, he will, and he’s very fast with those long legs. Boy can he run ~ he may have been a Greyhound in his previous life! He continues to be a work in progress as far as housebreaking and since he likes to mark furniture indoors he will have to wear a bellyband for the rest of his life. Since he has very few teeth, he is a slow eater so he is fed away from his fur brother and sisters so they can't take his food from him. He looks forward to mealtime and does love to eat! Sailor is very fearful of loud noises and will run to another room in fear from another dog barking or other loud noises. This includes thunder. During a thunderstorm, and with a Thundershirt on Sailor shakes all over and wants to be held tightly until the thunder subsides.

Below are some requirements for what is the perfect home environment for Sailor:

- A home with either a single woman or a couple – Sailor definitely prefers women more than men. Sailor must have a *full-time stay at home mommy because he suffers from severe separation anxiety when left alone.

- A home that understands that Sailor is a very, very sweet little boy, but also very timid, so a calm quiet home would be perfect. He is fearful of loud noises and thunder and lightning (he wears a thunder shirt during a thunder storm to help with his fear) and wants to be held tight during a storm. He is also very fearful of fireworks and loud barking from other dogs. NO CHILDREN IN THE HOME PLEASE!

- A home where Sailor could just cuddle up next to you all day long; he also likes to sleep right next to his human at night, so move over and make room in your bed for Sailor!

- A home where there is stay at home mommy that can stay at home with him all day long and just give him belly rubs and snuggles.

- A home where Sailor will have a female playmate around his age and size, as he has begun to show dominance to other males in the house.

- A home with a big fenced-in yard since he loves, loves, loves to run and has discovered his love of chasing after squirrels and lizards.

Bio 12/5/14

Although he gets along with other pups in the household, Sailor has become the Alpha dog and lets the other dogs know he is in charge. Sailor has a very sensitive stomach and cannot have beef or chicken. He does well on Blue Buffalo Fish and Brown rice for Small Breeds kibble.

Sailor has been waiting a long time for his forever home. Could you be his perfect family?

Update 10/20/14: Sailor is approximately 8 years old and is an adorable but very timid little Yorkie being fostered in Palm Coast, FL.

Update 03/28/15: On April Fools Day, Toby will be 7 months old! He now weighs 7 pounds and is still being fostered in Clearwater, FL.

As you may know, Toby is the pup who was born with severly deformed back legs. So far, he has had 2 surgeries on his right leg to give him the chance to walk. The surgeon has been wanting to keep a very close eye on his masterpiece-in-progress, so Toby has been staying half of each week with the vet and the other half in his foster home. Toby has been cheerfully tolerating our joint custody arrangement & is progressing like a champ! He has had his hard splint off for 2 weeks now and is balancing on his right back leg really well. He doesn't usually try to put any real weight on it while he's walking yet, but we know he's still learning. Plus, he has no muscle to speak of in his tiny little butt and back half. Since his legs never worked correctly, his muscles wasted away where they weren't being used. We are super proud of him for simply putting his foot on the ground & trying with each step. Slowly, as Toby is allowed more activity by the surgeon, we know he will build those muscles and run like the wind. FM was so excited to have the splint off, she rushed to buy a life jacket and get him started on some swimming therapy. Toby isn't too sure he likes the water, but he loves his FM and the treats she brought in the pool! We just got the news that Toby is doing so well he gets to stay home for the next few weeks. We are also starting to plan for the first surgery on his left rear leg sometime in May. For now, his crooked left leg sort of dangles and drags. Toby thanks all of you for the incredible support! He already looks pretty proud of himself & we're only halfway there. It will be exciting to see him using all four legs in a few more months. Stay tuned!

Update 2/23/2015 Toby is going to make an appearance at the "Get Rescued in Gulfport" event on Saturday, Feb. 28th in Gulfport, FL. If you want to say "Hi" to this darling boy, he will be at the UYR tent for the first 2 hours (before lunch).

Toby is 5.5 months old now and is our pup that was born with deformed rear legs. He had his second surgery on his right rear leg last week. The surgeon put in a second plate that overlaps and extends past the first plate fusing his knee in the correct position. This second plate will help stabilize his leg where it fractured after his first procedure due to his tiny and fragile bones and the screws needed to help give him a chance to walk in the future. Toby is feeling SO good now! He cannot wait for the doctor to give him permission to try out this "walking" thing he sees all the other pups doing. Until then, Toby is confined to his foster mom and dad's laps while they attempt to find toys to entertain him and keep him still. If you've ever met a puppy, you know that's a tricky task, but also so rewarding, fun, and full of kisses. Don't you want to foster too? Not all foster pups are as needy as Toby. Most of our dogs only need a warm bed and loving hand while they wait for their forever homes. Thinking it over but have questions? Ask. It never hurts to give it a try.

Update 02/09/15: Poor Toby found the first bump in his road to recovery today. The vet removed his bandaged splint to assess his movement and found that his leg has broken below the plate and lowest screw. They used the smallest possible hardware for his knee fusion, but Toby's bones are so small and fragile and started from such an extremely distorted position that his tiny bone fractured. The surgeon may have to perform a second surgery to elongate the fused section with a second plate to stabilize his fractured leg. We will not know the official plan until next week as they continue to watch him closely and formulate the best course of action. We knew from the beginning that Toby's case was very complicated and may require multiple procedures, let's just hope this is his only setback and his repair is still possible. Please be patient as we wait for more information. We will update you with his progress as soon as we know more. We could not be more thankful to all of you for the incredibly generous support in donations and well wishes. We (Toby & UYR) could not do this without you.

Update 02/07/2015: TOBY (Florida) had his first surgery on Wednesday! The surgeon was able to get his right rear leg straight by fusing his knee joint in a fixed position. He says we're off to a great start in Toby's long process towards standing up on his own. We feel very lucky that he let Toby come home with his foster parents for a weekend of intense snuggle therapy while on strict bed rest orders. Toby will return on Monday and stay the entire week again for them to watch his movements and begin his rehab. Toby has no idea how to move with a straight leg and a foot that now points towards the ground. Poor little guy either falls over and whimpers in confusion or takes a few steps while doing a handstand as his bandaged leg and other rear leg hover above the ground. He has a lot of learning and practice to do as he heals. We appreciate all of the strength you are sending his way!

02/03/2015: Toby (Florida) checked into the vet on Monday morning for his first surgery. He's only 5 months old and hoping that after a couple of surgeries, he may be able to stand up with the use of his back legs for the first time in his life! Unfortunately, due to an emergency with another dog, the surgeon called that afternoon to let us know he had to postpone Toby's procedure. He hoped to fit him in sometime today (Tuesday), but again, today was too busy. We were planning to pick him up and take him home for the weekend until we could reschedule. Then... somebody had to cancel their appointment for surgery tomorrow (Wednesday) so Toby's surgery is back on the books! YAY! Everyone wish him luck and let's keep our fingers crossed that everything goes well and he isn't too scared. The surgeon plans on keeping a close eye on him in the office for a few days after surgery, so we will send another update when he gets to come back to his foster home & let everyone know how this first step in his long journey is coming along.

TOBY update 1/18/2015: Good news & bad news. He just had his first visit to the specialist and we're in a tough spot. Toby's legs are so extremely rotated, the doctor says he only sees 1-2 cases/year this severe, and each one is very different. The surgeon says, although it will be a "significant challenge", he thinks he may be able to fix Toby's legs!! Hooray! There is no guarantee, and it may take more than one surgery per leg, BUT how great would it be if Toby could stand up and/or walk on his own for the rest of his life?!

The bad news... this could be even more expensive than we thought. Best case scenario, with everything going perfectly, his surgeries will be $4,000. It could possibly reach as much as $6-7,000! We have had so much support, and donations (big and small) have been coming in to help little Toby. Every little bit helps a great deal and you are ALL amazing & appreciated.

Some people may recommend a "wheelie cart" instead of surgery. Understandable. If you were a young kid and your legs could be fixed, would you rather have the limits of wheels your whole life?

Some may also point out how happy he is now...

Here are a few things Toby cannot do:

1. Cross a threshold. Toby's back legs get hooked on door frames and it can hurt and be really scary. He'd really like to just run inside like the other pup, but he has to stand and wait for someone to lift him over every bump and step.

2. Go potty without struggling to do a handstand. Toby tries SO hard to keep his legs clean. When he has to potty, he balances all of his weight on his 2 front legs while his back legs quiver and dangle, hovering as much as he can manage (about an inch off the ground). That's hard work!

3. Scratch his own ears. Poor Toby rubs his ears with his front legs as much as he can, but it doesn't do the trick. When his ears itch, he has to ask for help from Foster Mom or Foster Dad.

These may seem small, but Toby is such a young puppy, has so much life ahead of him, and he wants to be independent & free to explore. Wouldn't it be great if we could at least TRY to give him the gift of walking? If anyone has ideas to help raise money, please share. Pass Toby's story along to your friends and family too.

Initial Bio 1-6-15: Toby was born without the proper use of his hind legs. He has been mostly dragging his back legs his whole life, though he does try very hard to make them work.

We have an appointment next week with our surgical specialist to see what we can do to help little Toby. Hopefully, surgery can fix the problem. If surgery is not an option, we will still work towards any recommended plan of action to make sure Toby can move around without risk of further injury or pain. The doctor needs more x-rays to look closely at the deformity of his legs/knees before deciding the best next step.

We can do it! UYR has the most amazing supporters (more and more each day) and Toby has that strong Yorkie spirit to get him through ANYTHING! Now, he needs your help to get him all fixed up. Please support in any way you can by donating a few dollars towards his surgery and anticipated therapies OR simply by sharing his story.

Toby was initially afraid and distrusting of a petting hand. His fluffy puppy hair was already in matted clumps all over his body. It took both myself (Foster Mom) and Foster Dad working together for 2 hours to clip his hair as he was very jumpy around scissors and clippers. We gave him many breaks to rest and recover as to not make his first day too stressful. Once we could better see how his legs were moving under that hair, both of us couldn't help the tears welling up in our eyes. Toby felt AMAZING after his fresh haircut and bath and started quickly giving kisses and playing with the permanent dog of the house. He has never known any other life, so his way of moving around isn't sad for him at all. What a tough little pup! The only time Toby seems frustrated, is when he sees the other dog easily go up a stair or over a threshold that he needs help tackling. He is eager to explore the yard, but the smallest ruffle of a leaf sends him scooting away as fast as he can. The world seems brand new to him and it's a little bit exciting, but sometimes pretty scary. Sweet Toby is getting a crash course in socializing and learning about everything so quickly.

Toby is not yet available for adoption. Let's figure out what he needs first and make sure he gets it. I promise to keep the updates coming and please keep watching for a video of him wiggling about soon.


To date we've spent $2576.94 on Toby's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $5907.00 in donations.

Tony
Florida
Tony

Initial Bio 4/14/15 Meet Tony. The most well behaved, sweetest boy ever. Tony is 6 years old and he weighs 10 pound. He should be closer to 8 pounds, so his foster mom has put him on a diet.. He is being fostered on Orlando, FL.

Tony was sadly surrendered by his owner. She had to move due to health and personal reasons. She made the very hard decision that she could not take him with her and give him the care he needed. She came United Yorkie Rescue knowing we would find him a wonderful forever home.

Tony is such a great dog. He gets along with other small dogs and loves everyone, grownups and kids. He is not too fond of of cats and he is scared of big dogs, so he will need a home with no cats and only small dogs.

Tony is house trained and up to date on his vaccinations,. He is neutered and heartworm negative. Tony will be getting a dental very soon, and will be good to go. Tony would be fine with kids over the age of 9. This is one great dog.

As Tony's foster mom gets to know him better there will be more information coming. Don't pass Tony by. A better behaved, more perfect dog you won't find anywhere.

Mila

Mila

Mila is an adorable 10 month old yorkie puppy who weighs 9.3 lbs; Mila is being fostered in Suwanee, GA

THANK YOU TO MILA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Irene and Peter Havas

UPDATED BIO 03/21/2015: Mila is a sweet little puppy who hasn't had the best start in life after being abandoned by her original owners and saved by her new owner. After only a month in her new home, her leg was caught in a fold-up bed and she sustained a fracture of the distal radius and ulna of her right front leg. Her owner was unable to afford the costs of surgery and surrendered her to the kind vet who splinted her leg and contacted UYR. Being a puppy, she managed during the first night in the foster home to slip out of the splint, so back to the UYR vet she went.

The area that was broken (the 2 bones of the forearm close to the wrist area) is not an unusual area for dogs and cats to get broken bones. Because the original splint was intended to be a temporary "fix", it appeared that Mila's bones were not lined up perfectly. Most young dogs and cats (under 1 yr) who get broken bones tend to heal well with a splint (i.e. bandaging, splinting), but at times the bone may be a little crooked. UYR's vet put Mila under anesthesia and straightened out the bone as much as possible; even with a slightly crooked leg, her leg should be fully functional when healed.

Mila is a very sweet and super smart little puppy who is on the road to recovery now that she is under UYR's competent and loving care. She has received her first set of puppy vaccinations and has been spayed. For Mila's foster dads, it will be hard to keep her quiet so that her leg will heal properly, but with some doggie sedatives and being in the crate except for loving and pottying, she should be ready for adoption in several months ~ we are taking adoption applications for her now. Mila's perfect home would be one that had a fenced-in yard as she is fascinated with the birds and squirrels and, being a puppy, she will love to run and enjoy her freedom.

Initial Inquiry 03/17/2015: MEET MILA! She is an adorable 10 month old puppy who weighs 9.3 lbs; Mila is being fostered in Suwanee, GA.

Mila came into UYR with a complete fracture of the distal radius and ulna of her right front leg. Her original owner abandoned her and the person caring for her was unable to afford the cost of surgery. Please stay tuned for more updates on Mila as they become available.


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

Chloe
Illinois
Chloe

Chloe is a 3 pound, 4 year old Yorkie female being fostered in Canton, IL

THANK YOU TO CHLOE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Jan Freeman, Wendy D'Uva, Christine Dwyer

Initial Bio 03/20/15: My name is Chloe, I'm 4.5 years old and 3lb. born Nov. 24th 2010. My foster momma sometimes calls me Peanut or Angel, which she says is because I'm such a little thing and sweet as can be. I'm really glad I was rescued by United Yorkie Rescue, see I was left at a shelter by my family when they couldn't care for me anymore. I don't know what happened way back in Oct. 2014, I don't remember anymore, but one day I just couldn't walk, my back legs didn't work and I couldn't feel my toes. I couldn't hold my bladder or my bowels either all of a sudden, and the Dr's didn't know why. They gave me some medicine but it didn't help. I'm a pretty spunky girl and wasn't going to be kept down, so I kept trying and slowing I was able to start walking a little bit again, but it seems there are other things wrong with me which was making it hard, I have luxating patellas in both my back legs. My left knee is really bad so I usually tuck it up under me and kind of hop around, but after awhile my other leg gets tired and I need to rest. Both of my legs have atrophied because of this. Sometimes I can get my knees to lock, which allows me to walk and run almost normal! I'm pretty fast when I want to be! But, they say I need surgery to fix my legs, so I can walk and run and not have pain as I age. At some point I may not be able to walk anymore and I love running in the yard, following my foster momma around the house and playing. She says I'm like her little shadow. I get along well with my foster brother and sisters, I like to stay with them and sometimes play too. I like to play with your hand by gently mouthing, and then smiling to show you how happy I am. I don't know if I like big dogs because they would be SO much bigger than me and I haven't been around them, and I'm not sure about kids because they could hurt me since I'm so small. I haven't been around cats, but I'm such a happy go lucky girl they'd probably be ok with me. Please don't think I'm picky, I just need to be in a safe environment where I won't get hurt because of my size, or because I like to run outside.

I try hard to go potty outside like I know I should, I go when we all go outside for potty breaks, but I just can't hold it because of whatever happened to my spine, so foster momma puts these little things on me she calls my doggy panties, and I wear them all the time since I can't control my bladder anymore. She changes my little pad inside every few hours, I stand still so good for her while she puts it on me. Sometimes I have poo accidents though when she isn't watching, because I can't control things and they just come out. She hasn't gotten mad or frustrated at all with me, which I'm so glad of because sometimes it happens when I'm on the couch or sitting on her rug, and then she has to clean up after me. I want to make it stop, I start spinning in circles and look at her worried afraid she may yell at me, but she never does, she calms me down and cleans me up.

I'm a good eater, I love my breakfast and dinner and if you wanna give me treats I would love that too! My foster momma when she first got me gave me a grain free high quality food that was really tiny for my size and helped me transition, then she slowly started giving me whole food with my kibble, which I love! Momma says it's cooked ground turkey and hamburger with cooked sweet potato, squash, and green beans. Sometimes she adds fruits like strawberries or blueberries, and she even adds a little yogurt smoothie to it so it helps keep my system working good since I have my bowel issues. It seems to really help!

I really want to find my forever home and be loved again by my own patient and understanding family who won't get mad at me for making messes sometimes, or needing baths more often than what they call a 'normal', whatever that is. I love snuggling, and giving kisses, and sleeping in the same room with you in my kennel. Hopefully someone who's maybe home all day, with time for my extra care, will come along soon and make me their forever angel. I promise to give a lifetime of kisses and love and joy to you in return! Are you my forever family?

Cleo

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

THANK YOU TO CLEO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Nancy Stanley

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


To date we've spent $344.54 on Cleo's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $65.54 in donations.

Cooper

Cooper is a 6 pound, 7.5 year old yorkie being fostered in Shiloh, IL

THANK YOU TO COOPER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Natalie LaBayen

Update0 4/13/15: Hi everyone, Cooper here. I got in for my dental a week early, so now I'm one week post dental & doing great! I lost almost all my teeth, but I still eat like a piggy! I'm all ready for my new home now, & I promise I'm such a good boy. I love to snuggle & sit in your lap, hang around outside & run in the yard. While I'm not housetrained because I do mark, I just wear a cute belly band to protect from accidents. But I am 100% crate trained. I have gotten along with all other doggies I have met so far that foster mom had introduced me to. But I don't get along with little kids, so that's my only dealbreaker. If you like my profile, hit the button to apply to adopt me!

Update 03/26/15: Hi everyone. I've been at foster mom's house for almost 2 weeks now & she's learned some things about me she thought I should tell you. First, it only takes a couple of days for me to warm up before I just love to snuggle all the time & lay in a lap. And I like to wear my new pjs, just look at my new picture & how handsome I am! Also, I met some small kids that were 3 years old & I did not like them at all. So I will not be adopted to a home with small children. Older kids might be ok, but I would have to see them first. Also, we're still working on the marking thing. It's hard because everything smells so good I like to be sure to let everyone know it's mine. But I am 100% crate trained. I've never had an accident in my crate while foster mom is at work. I'll have my dental April 13th & be ready for my new home. Any other questions, just ask!

Initial Bio 03/16/15: Hi, my name is Cooper. Fostef mom just picked me up yesterday, as my prior owners said they had to surrender me because I wasn't getting along with my yorkie brother, plus I was marking too much. However, I get along very well with the girl dogs here at this house. Maybe I'm just more of a ladies man! I do still mark, but not very much. Foster mom is going to work on this house training with me, and in the meantime I'm wearing a belly band. I do appear to be crate trained. I'm very sweet, a little shy & unsure of what just happened to me, but I'm sure with a little time I will be a snuggly lovebug because I love to be held and sit in laps. Stay tuned as I settle in & foster mom learns more about me, & tries to get better pictures because I really don't like having my picture taken. If you want a quiet, sweet boy, fill out an application to adopt me now!

Update 3/13/15: Hi everyone! Just want to let everyone know that I'm still on the adoption block. I was adopted just before Thanksgiving but it didn't work out for me. They were a great family but I was very nervous and they felt it would be better for me to return to FM and FD's home. It's been a long winter here in NewEngland and I for one have Cabin fever. Looking forward to long walks, going to the beach and catching those sun beams, oh how I've missed them. Did you know I went to the Dogter for a booster shot and the dreaded thermometer, now that was embarrassing. They weighed me and I am up to 9LBS! The Dogter said that was a good weight for me. I had some blood work done to make sure my seizure medication was doing it's job. So if your looking for an older Gentleman who loves walks, car rides and sun beams put your application in so we can meet. One more thing FM and FD say my Barkday is just around the corner, you know what that means, party hats, presents and CAKE! I'm going to be 12 yrs. old but don't let that fool you cause I can keep up with my fursiblings and they are 8 and 6 yrs. old.

Initial Bio 01/01/14: Benji is a Hurricane Katrina survivor who lost his owner and was taken into rescue. He was found to have heartworm disease and successfully underwent treatment. Benji has a seizure disorder that is easily treated with an inexpensive medication. He does require a limited diet of Prescription dog food Hill's I/D and a spacer ball to be placed in his food bowl to slow his eating. Eating too much and too quickly can bring on a seizure.

Benji will need a securely fenced yard because he is a little escape artist. He enjoys basking in the sun and perching on lawn furniture. He loves to be with people and will cuddle up next to them. He loves other dogs, but care must be taken to ensure he doesn't help himself to dog food that other dogs are consuming. He is fearful of loud noises, thunder and lightening and is very fearful of fireworks. Benji enjoys rope toys that are designed to help clean teeth, and he loves playing with a tennis ball. He loves to have his hair brushed with a very soft brush and to be cuddled and patted. He is a very , very good dog and he loves to be loved. He prefers covered cat beds to the traditional dog bed (it helps him feel more secure, particularly during rain storms). He is a little boy who due to his size would be better in a home with no small children.


To date we've spent $2510.98 on Benji's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $131.00 in donations.

Gibbs

THANK YOU TO GIBBS' RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, John Sauser, Holly Stavis, Lois Forrester, Renae and Jerry Sutley, Sheila Landis, Holly Stavis, Sue McBride, Cynthia Duranti, Sheila Landis

Updated Bio 03-26-15 Hello My name is Gibbs. I am about 7 1/2 years old. I live in Mount Pleasant, SC and tip the scales at a perfect 6.2 pounds.

I recently had some tests on my recurrent urinary tract infections; the results showed a totally new infection that the vets say can be fixed. I started new meds today and I hope this fixes the problem. The other meds I am taking seem to have corrected the bladder stone problem. Then finally my diarrhea problem can also be cured as soon as I am free of all infections. Hopefully we get some good news in the next two weeks. Now that you have updated on my medical issues, let’s move on to happier things.

Last week after a whole lot of rain I was in the back yard just trolling for something to chase when I stepped into this mud puddle. It was so cool playing in this gooey black mud. Rolling around and trying to get to a ball that was in the middle of the puddle. Then I spotted a squirrel on the other side of the yard and went after it. This took me across the deck and it seems I left a trail of mud all over it. Foster mom was not happy. She got out the hose and washed me off mumbling something to the tune of "typical boy". The water was cold, not like the nice warm baths I normally get. She sure was upset. But just a little while later, I was all snuggled up on her lap. She still loves me.

On a final note....... for some reason the medical expenses trying to get me all fixed up and ready for adoption far outweigh the donations. I thought y’all loved me. (you know it’s hard not to) . Please please please help by hitting the donate button at the bottom of the page. Some people commented that at this rate I am valued at $725 a pound. Wow!

Note from Foster Mom: Wouldn't you want a little guy that is so valuable and special in your life? Please fill out an adoption application. And don't forget to donate to Gibbs' care. He has had a hard road with a lot of expense, but with your help, UYR can continue to work to make him a very healthy pup.

Update 12-13-14: Hello My name is Gibbs I live in God’s country. (Charleston SC) I have lost a little weight from running and playing, I am down to 6.2 Lbs. We are still fighting my urinary tract infection (UTI). I started some new meds today so let’s see what happens. I will go 2 weeks on these pills and get tested again, Oh joy.

Y’all know you can fill out an application for the most handsome Yorkie alive and my Foster mom will keep it on file so when I am all fixed up you will be able to be graced with my presence as your forever Yorkie. You will be so lucky to have me. I love to just sit on your lap and be loved.

You know what just happened in our house the other day. This tree just sprouted up overnight in our living room. It so pretty all decorated up with lights and everything. You don’t suppose they planted that tree for me to relieve myself on do you. I don’t think I will try as the consequences could put a pain on my behind area. Just a thought. I hope everybody has a nice and healthy Christmas and maybe next year I could be checking out your Christmas tree.

Sir Gibbs

UPDATE: 10-26-2014 Hi, my name is Gibbs. I am approximately 7 years old and currently weigh 6.5 lbs. I am being fostered in Mount Pleasant SC (Charleston).

As you can see by my increased weight, I am feeling pretty good. I have filled out those bony ribs I had and can chase squirrels with the best of them. I still have some urinary tract infection (UTI) problems that seem to be stumping the vets. They have done some additional testing and I will be getting another shot that they hope will work on my UTI. I also will get a new diet then ~ I hope it is good. They have figured out what is causing the occasional diarrhea, but said they can’t treat it until my UTI is cleared up.

None of this stuff is slowing me down. I love to run and play with the other dogs in the house, bark at the neighbors’ dogs and, best of all, chase squirrels. The other day a squirrel was sitting on the top of the fence just out of my reach. I barked and barked, but he just sat there and smiled at me ~ I thought that was mean…….

We have some lab dogs on each side of our back yard. They pick on me all the time. One will bark like he wants to play and I run to that fence. Just when I get there, the other one starts to bark and I run over there. Then they do it again. After they do this a couple of times I get tired and give up. It’s just not fair. Sorry it’s been so long since I checked in ~ I promise I will update everyone more often.

Sir Gibbs

Update 07/14/14: Well it has been a couple of busy weeks. If they would have told me what a “Endoscopy/Colonoscopy Combo” was I would have hightailed it back to the Big Easy. I can tell you that wasn’t any fun, especially the prep. You don’t need the details. I guess they took biopsies at several places trying to find out what is causing all my problems. They also brought in an oral surgeon during the surgery to look at my teeth. They took some special type of X-ray or something that revealed where the abbesses were located. They found two serious problems that needed to be corrected.

Well last Friday I was back (like a bad penny) again. They went in and pulled the two bad teeth, and while they were in there they saw where the same problem was developing on the other side. You guessed it they took those out to prevent problems in the future. I am not sure I will ever get back in the car with foster Dad.

Well to sum this all up, the sore on my nose is almost gone, they found something in those biopsies and gave me some special medicine to stop the diarrhea, they found the right combination of antibiotics to fix the two different types of urinary infections and the rash on my back is gone. Boy did I have some bugs or what. I am not ready for a home quite yet but I am getting close. In about 3 weeks Dr. Perry and Dr. Henri should give me a green lite.

One sad note, they determined I am about seven years old not five. It’s a good thing I am not a girl because that would have upset me. Since I am a male that just means I have gone from a boy to a man.

I feel so much better and can’t wait to get to my new home. Please help, UYR has spent so much money to help me feel good. Donate:

6-26-14 Hello my name is Gibbs. I weigh 5.3 lbs. and live in Mount Pleasant SC (Charleston )

Well folks things did not go as planned. Dr. Perry has yet to determine what bug is causing all my problems. My diarrhea and the infection on my nose have not gotten any better. Next Tuesday (7/1/14) they plan to do a “Endoscopy/Colonoscopy Combo” whatever that is, I guess I will find out Tuesday. Poor United Yorkie Rescue, I bet they would think twice about bringing me under their wing if they had to do it over again. I guess all these test I have had and this one coming next Tuesday are breaking the bank. This is where you come in. Please help by going to this link above and donating so they don’t take all these tests back. I am so miserable and so want to run and play and just feel good.

Update 04/14/14: 4-11-14 Hello my name is Gibbs. I weigh 5.3 lbs. and live in Mount Pleasant SC (Charleston)

I was walking the streets of the Big Easy, enjoying the festivities of Fat Tuesday. Boy they sure know how to party in New Orleans. All of a sudden this really nice man picked me up and took me to a real nice place they call the New Orleans SPCA. I spent a long time there, it was OK. They poked and prodded me giving me shots and all kinds of stuff. I had this really bad abscessed tooth that was causing me to have big sore on my nose. They also said something about a galloping heart beat (whatever that is) I was feeling quite bad. Then I heard a rumor that they were going to euthanize me because no one wanted me because of my medical problems. I don’t know what euthanize means but it didn’t sound good.

The next day my new foster mom and dad from United Yorkie Rescue showed up and we went for a long car ride back to Charleston, better known as God’s Country. Now is when all the thing started to happen to me. I got a full body x-ray, something called an echo cardiogram, more shots, meds for a urinary tract infection, a cold which gave me a raspy voice, teeth cleaned and the bad tooth that caused all the problems was pulled. What a week. So now I am getting all the meds I need to get back to my healthy, handsome self.

Any way I am feeling much better and my infections should be cleared up soon. Dr. Perry says my heart is fine. One of my valves has a very minor leak but nothing to worry about. I would love to have a new home now that I am all tuned up and ready to go. My little brain is stressed from all this talking, time for a nap. Sir Gibbs the Great

Updated BIO 4/12/2015

Kingsley here with a Pupdate!

I have had a very busy week! I am in a brand new foster home in Ashland City TN. I am a traveling man and I have adapted to my new "digs" very well. The best thing is that there is a tiny little Yorkie girl in my new home and she and I are becoming bestest friends! My new home is all on one level to so that helps me get around easier. Speaking of getting around, I have made SO MUCH PROGRESS since my surgery. That big contraption called an external fixator on my tiny leg doesn't hold me back.....no Sir! I am so used to it now I barely even know it is there. I did GREAT at my first post-op visit and don't have to go back for recheck and xrays for a whole month. I don't mind going to the dogtor.....they are so nice to me and I love them for making me well! In fact, I love just about EVERYPAWDY and I will drown you in kisses if you let me.

Both my foster Moms say I am the best boy EVER in the house trained department. I NEVER have a mistake in the house if I am let outside regularly and I also let you know when I need to GO. I am also very TALKATIVE and have a cute little "baby-speak" that I will use to get your attention. I am very good eater too. I am probably a little too skinny and would be healthier at about 5 lbs but the way I am eating I will be there in NO TIME! I have to have thyroid medicine twice a day but let me tell you it is NO BIG DEAL to me. I like it because it is helping me grow my hair back in and it is coming in fast.

It will likely be June before I can be adopted but time is flying by and I am in great hands until then BUT if you love my smile and think you could be that special person to love me FOREVER and EVER then PLEASE go ahead and apply to adopt me.

Updated BIO 4/12/2015:Just look at this HAPPY BOY! Why is Kingsley smiling? For SOOOOOOO MANY REASONS! Let's let Kingsley tell you why.........

1. I am NOT HURTING! That is the MOSTEST PAWSOME THING EVER!!!! My leg doesn’t hurt anymore at all since my RESCUE ANGELS helped me get my leg surgery.

2. I can runny-hop around and keep up with my fur brothers and sisters! That means I am PLAYING lots and lots and I LOVE THAT!

3. MY HAIR IS COMING BACK! Don’t get me wrong…..I think I ROCKED the bald look but I like me with hair best and I’m pretty sure the girl Yorkies do too! I’m still kind of bald but I have FULL FUZZ coming in behind. That thyroid medicine is REALLY doing the trick for me.

4. I have FANS! I have people in lots of places who seem to LOVE ME and email my foster Mom to check on me. Foster Mom tells me that they EVEN SENT MONEY so that I can continue to get well.

5. I LOVE MY FOSTER HOME. My foster humans love me SO MUCH and give me lots of attention. I LIKE THAT a LOT.

I could go ON and ON…….I am such a LUCKY BOY and have SO MUCH to be THANKFUL for.

My Foster Parents discovered something NEW about me this week. I don’t like thunderstorms! It is Spring in Tennessee and we have had a couple of bad ones this week. I was all tucked in my Pack and Play for the night and my foster mom and dad were sleeping soundly until the storm hit around 3:00 a.m. I have been pretty quiet up until now but I decided I was scared and I needed to wake them up to comfort me. So I started to BARK. And Bark some more. Foster Mom came and scooped me up and put me in bed with her and then it was okay. But now that I have found my voice (and I have seen it gets me what I want) I have continued to use it. I LIKE TO TALK! If I think you aren’t paying enough attention to me I will “ASK” for more and make my presence known!

This week I will go back to the DOGTOR for a post-op check-up and x-rays.

To date my supporters have contributed an AMAZING $1030 toward the $1500 in vet bills that I have to get me to the place where I can be adopted. That is SO CLOSE! I am SO GRATEFUL to everyone for helping me. I will continue to need additional Vet visits and care before I have my external fixator removed in late Spring or early Summer. Can you PLEASE continue to help me recover? Every dollar helps. Thank You so much for the support you have shown me and all the other UYR dogs. If you can help please go to

Kingsley's You Caring Site

Puppy Kisses and HUGE THANKS to everyone!

Updated BIO 4/1/2015

Kingsley is a 5 year old 4.5 lbs Yorkie being fostered in Beechgrove TN. Kingsley had a VERY big day today. He had is surgery! He will be in a device called an external fixator to keep his bones aligned while he heals over the next 3-4 months. He will need ongoing post op visits, xrays and medications but this little guy is tough! He is already so much more comfortable. We are hopeful he will regain full use of his leg and go to his perfect new forever home this summer. We were not sure we would be able to save his leg but THANKS TO all of his AMAZING SUPPORTERS little Kingsley will be whole again. As Kingsley's foster mom, I cannot BEGIN to say THANK YOU enough! Stay tuned as Kingley's journey of recovery continues. And watch his videos here

And Kingsley's first day in his foster home Kinsley

Initial BIO 3/29/2015 Hello every Puppy and Puppy Lover!

My name is Kingsley! Where to start. I came from a home where I was loved and have lived with my human Mom since I was 8 weeks old. And even though I am a tiny guy she gave me a BIG NAME of KINGSLEY! I was King of our home together.

I have been healthy my whole life until 2-3 months ago when my hair started falling out and I started having an upset tummy. My human Mom took me to the vet multiple times. They couldn’t really find out any reason why so they put me on special “gentle tummy” dog food and that seemed to take care of my tummy issues. But my hair keeps getting thinner and now the top of my head is almost completely bald. It doesn’t bother me…….lots of cute guys shave their heads these days right????

The other and BIGGER problem I have now is that a few weeks ago I started limping and once again my human Mom took me to the vet. They diagnosed me with luxating patellas; which is a fancy way to say my knee caps slide out of place sometimes. This is a very common but manageable condition in Yorkies. The Dogtor put me on some medicine to help with pain and told my Mom I might need to have surgery someday but not needed now. I got better for a little while ……but soon my Mom noticed my right leg was swelling and I couldn’t put any weight on it. Back to the vet we went and they couldn’t figure it out so they sent me to a specialist. Some xrays were done and showed that I have TWO BROKEN BONES in my leg. We don’t know how it happened but in a tiny boy like me anything such as a tumble off the sofa or down the steps could break a bone. The breaks are pretty bad and I have some bone chips floating around inside that really hurt me when I move my leg. The specialist said he could try to fix my leg with surgery; but since I am such a tiny boy with tiny bones there is no guarantee of success and that the surgery would cost almost $5000. My human Mom had already spent thousands on me just to get me diagnosed and she just didn’t have any money left for surgery. She knew I couldn’t stay in pain so she reached out to United Yorkie Rescue to help me get the treatment I need to live a happy and pain free life. As it stands right now I can’t do much at all with my leg except drag it and that REALLY hurts.

And we also need to figure out why my hair is falling out but that is a lower priority right now. Do they make wigs for puppies? If not, I’m totally COOL with the Bald look. AND DID YOU NOTICE I HAVE AN ADORABLE UNDERBITE?

So that is my story in a nutshell. I just got to my foster home and my new humans have other dogs and cats. None of them seem to bother me at all so far but I am kind of in a daze right now. My new humans are helping me stay comfortable by giving me pain medication and some sedatives until I see my new Dogtor tomorrow and hopefully some decisions can be made so that I can start to get better.

Oh…..one more thing. My care is going to cost A LOT OF MONEY. I will FOR SURE need some kind of surgery; I don’t know what kind yet but it will cost a bundle. And I will need to see a skin specialist to figure out why my hair is falling out. I FEEL REALLY BAD ASKING FOR HELP and I know there are lots of puppies out there that need your support but if you could spare ANYTHING, even a little bit to help me I would be EVER so grateful!

One day, hopefully soon I will be ready to go to a PAWSOME new FOREVER HOME. I SO LONG for the day that someone will want to TAKE ME and all my PERFECT IMPERFECTIONS and LOVE ME TO FOREVER PIECES. Could that possibly be you? My perfect home would be someone without small children due to my tiny size and who is home a lot because I LOVE COMPANY and want to become someone’s Velcro Boy! I’m not ready to be adopted just yet but DON’T LET THAT STOP YOU from applying for me.

Jack is a 10 year old, 6 pound sweet and cuddly Yorkie being fostered in Grapevine, TX.

THANK YOU TO JACK'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Update 04-12-15: Jack is a 6 pound 10 year old yorkie that is being fostered in Grapevine, TX. Here is what he had to say today. Hi everybody. I have been living with my foster family for about a month now, and so much has happened. You see I was a very sick little guy. I was very thin and my thyroid didn’t work right. I had a mouth full of infected teeth that hurt so bad, and I had two big bad bladder stones that made it hurt to go potty. Also my skin hurt and my hair was falling out. Foster mom took me straight to the dogtor and he was shocked at what bad condition I was in, but he said, “we are going to get this boy feeling better!” He started with some blood work that detected my thyroid problem and got me started on some medicine for that and also a special shampoo for my skin. He said the thyroid was making my hair fall out. Then I had a surgery and had 26 teeth removed. Then he sent me home to heal. When I was feeling a little better I went back in and had the bladder stones removed. I just got my stitches out from that surgery, and in a little over two weeks I had gained a whole pound! I am feeling so much better! I used to dribble when I pottied and I couldn’t control my bladder at all, so I had to wear this diaper thing called a belly band. Not anymore! I have almost completely stopped “dribbling” and I go outside to potty now! I also never mark like some boy dogs do, so you don’t have to worry about that. I also have a special food so that I won’t get those stones again. So now I am ready for my own furever family! FM says I am the sweetest boy, and everyone who meets me falls in love with meoul. I am very calm, I love to go for walks, sleep next to my person, and I love to get petted and will reward you with the sweetest gentle kisses. Don’t let my age fool you. I have a lot of life left in me now that all my health problems have been taken care of. My medicine for my thyroid is very inexpensive-less than 10.00 a month, and my food is reasonable as well. I would love to be an only dog with someone that is home quite a bit to let me out, or maybe another senior would be nice. I don’t really care for my foster sister. She is just too wild and crazy. I would like a nice, quiet, calm household. If you would like a sweet, gentle little boy like me, just drop my FM a note!

Update 03/16/15: Jack is a 10 year old, 5.5 pound yorkie that is being fostered in Grapevine, TX. He came into rescue when his owner didn't have the resources or the time to care for him. He is a very sick little boy. Bloodwork showed he had a very serious infection and an under active thyroid. He is on medicine for both of those conditions. The under active thyroid has caused him to have hyper pigmented skin which is very dark and almost looks like he is covered in little black pimples. He also has a large amount of flaking and a condition called seborrhea. He has to be lathered with a special shampoo and sit with it on for 10 minutes daily to clear up the skin conditions. He also has two very large bladder stones that make it very hard for him to urinate, and it also makes him incontinent. In addition it is causing blood in his urine. He had surgery on March 11th and had 26 teeth removed that were abscessed and infected. The vet wasn't comfortable doing his bladder surgery at that same time, so he is having the bladder stones removed on March 25th. In the meantime, he is wearing a belly band.

Jack is a very sweet, gentle little guy that just wants to be loved and cared for. He is such a good boy about all the treatment he is going through right now.

He won't be available for adoption until he is completely recovered from his treatment. That being said, UYR could sure use some financial support for this little guy. He deserves to feel better, and we can't treat these little angels without support from caring people.

Please stay tuned as he progresses through his next surgery.

Initial Bio 3/13/15 Jack was surrendered due to his owner's inability to continue to care for him. He desperately needs a dental with extractions, special baths for his skin condition and further evaluation of his urinary issues. Watch for updates as we continue with his vetting.

Lexie
Texas
Lexie

THANK YOU TO LEXIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Tina Dorenbecker, Holly Stavis, Holly Stavis, Lori Stewart

Update 04/19/14: Lexie is about to go back into training for her next steps. She's a sweet dog - loves adults and teenagers, but isn't good around young children with high energy. She seems to be very nervous around them and isn't on her best behavior. Lexie must be adopted into a home with only adults, and she needs to be the only dog. In this setting, she will thrive. Lexie's foster mom takes her to dog parks, but keeps her on a leash as she continues to work on her socialization skills.

Update 4/3/14: Lexie is being fostered in Austin TX. She is 8 years old, 12 pounds and needs to be an only dog in a household with no children.

Lexie's foster mom continues to work on her socialization skills with a trainer who reports that Lexie is one of the most clever terriers she has seen. Lexie loves to play, is housetrained (but you need to watch for her signal), is leash trained and loves to sit on your lap. Lexie is an active and loving little girl who needs a bit more work to make her a perfect companion. Please watch for progress updates on Lexie.

INITIAL BIO 09/09/13: Roll out the red carpet, ladies & gents, because we definitely have a super special gem here... Introducing Lexie!

Lexi is 8 yrs young and is being fostered in Texas. This sweetness of a girl is quite the entertainer! She has personality to the moon & back! I've only had her for 7 days, so I'm certain there remains much more to learn about lil' Miss. As she settles into her new surroundings & begins to express more, I will update my thoughts on her needs and what I think her best forever home would look like, but for now, here are a few things I've noticed:

She LOVES to play!! Can't stress this enough! She seems to prefer the ball, but she'll fetch, (and retrieve very nicely, dropping at your feet), any toy.

She definitely needs to be monitored (when outside in the hot weather) because she'll fetch endlessly, exhausting herself, & heat exhaustion can happen quick with terrible consequences. I always have water on hand when we go to the park & make her rest every 3 to 4 throws. She LOVES people, (she's an owner surrender, by the way, who reported Lexie exhibiting anxious behavior around young children, but I have yet to observe this).

She walks well on a leash, is housebroken (she always goes to the door, but you must be observant of this bc it's her only que), she barks when someone is on the porch, but not otherwise. Her favor spot is on your lap and she likes to be touching you when it's time for sleeping.

She is my permanent shadow at the moment. This may change as she feels more relaxed & comfortable with the changes. Her recall at the dog park is pretty good after only a week. I always have training treats to reward when she responds. Usually, however, she's either chasing her ball or begging you to chunk it, so recalling her isn't necessary. At this point, there is only one issue that I see & that is that she will probably need to be an only dog. She has exhibited dog aggression over her toy/ball, whomever's lap she's in, & on occasion, even the couch. I've seen her advance towards a dog to defend whatever territory she believed to be threatened. She seems pretty adamant with this behavior, so I'm not sure, at 8 yrs old, it'd be likely to change.

Other than that, Lexie is an outstanding girl. She's a true joy & gives so much... Whoever is lucky enough to adopt her will fall completely in love! I have no doubt because I'm skipping down that road after 1 short week. Stay tuned for more to come...

Mason

Mason

Mason is a 7 pound, 10 year old Yorkie who is being fostered in Lancaster, TX.

THANK YOU TO MASON'S RESCUE ANGELS!

LeNora Armbruster, DeAnn Deutsch, Christine Dwyer, James and Julie Hufford, John Sauser, Nina Tow, Connie Pfeiffer, Kathy Benson, Craig Seal, Gale Young, Tara Hildreth, Sean Cox, Kelli Rose, Traci Vanover, Jan Clasen, Sarah Davies, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Sharon Arreguin, Irene and Peter Havas, Malena Cueva, K Dionne, James Hufford, Nancy Stanley

Update 03-30-15: Well I had my dental and neuter today and I'm pretty excited because I got to keep so many more teeth than originally expected!! I also had some blood work done and the doctor says my platelets are much higher than when I first visited and this is good news!! My leg appears to be healing very well and I have an appointment to have these pins removed on May 2nd. If all goes well my HW treatment will begin soon after. I have been told that I need to stay strong as this treatment can be difficult. If cleaning my bowl and playing with my fur siblings will keep me strong I should be good to go. I am a very happy little boy and my FM says I'm very sweet too (I do not cause a minute of trouble unless you don't want to rub my belly). Guess what....It has been over 2 weeks since FM put my belly band on because .....no accidents!!! My FM says I'm a joy and she can't wait to see me 100% healthy. I am working hard to get well and your support and prayers are so appreciated!

Update 03/09/15: Mason had surgery on Wednesday to repair the fracture in his leg. The doctors are very hopeful that it will heal properly and that he can avoid amputation. He is starting to put some weight on the leg which is a good sign. Mason still has a very long road in front of him as his dental needs have been neglected and he is heart worm positive, neither of which can not be dealt with until his leg heals. Due to the heart worms and overall neglect his little body needs to be in better health before going through more surgery or enduring the treatment for the heart worms. He will need your prayers and support as we work to get him ready. He is really a very sweet little guy and is startling to show us his personality. We can tell that he is beginning to feel loved and safe (maybe for the first time) as he is beginning to trust. He is eating well, loves his treats and has already stopped marking inside. He gets so excited when he sees us and seems to enjoy being part of "the fur pack". Thank you so much for the love and generosity shown to Mason, he is so deserving of a better life and with your help he will have it.

Initial Bio 03/03/15: Mason is a very sweet little boy who arrived at UYR late last night. He has had a very rough time and we are hoping to provide him the love, safety and healing he so desperately needs. Mason was picked up by Animal Control on 2/21 and because he has a broken leg he was left to sit in a cage for a week and was then scheduled to be euthanized. Thankfully, a group saw how sweet he is, pulled him aside and contacted UYR with only hours to go. When he arrived at his foster home he would not eat or drink but was so grateful for a soft couch and a warm blanket that he feel asleep quickly. This morning he ate a little (thankfully because he is thin) and then had his first vet visit. It has been determined that his front left leg is fractured (most likely from a larger dog attack) and needs immediate surgery if there is any chance of saving it. Mason is also HW positive so following his surgery he will undergo treatment for this condition. Mason has a very long road ahead of him but we intend to see him through all of it as he is so deserving. With all that he has been through he still trusts both dogs and humans, that's the unconditional love that makes us want to see him happy! We keep telling him that the best part of his life is in front of him!!


To date we've spent $1492.85 on Mason's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $600.00 in donations.

Rocco
Virginia
Rocco

Rocco is 8 years old, 11 pounds, and is being fostered in Hardy, VA.

THANK YOU TO ROCCO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sarah Northmore

Initial Bio 3/9/15 Rocco just came into his new foster home and is working on settling in. Rocco appears to be in need of a lot of tender loving care. He came in to UYR in pretty rough shape. He is going to the vet Wednesday for his check up and vaccinations. Once he gets a nice bath and a grooming he will be a new dog. The vet will be checking his eyes and skin as he seems to have a rash. He definitely needs a dental so he will be getting that done soon, too. Rocco will be an amazing dog after receiving the proper medical care, good food, and a ton of loving care.

Rocco is getting along fine with the other dogs in the home, but doesn't seem to like the cats. His foster mom will be working on that with him, but at this time it looks like a no cat family would be the best fit for him.

Once Rocco has seen the vet we will know a lot more. He is partially house trained and is great with kids. He also rides nicely in the car and is crate trained.

Look for more information and Rocco's picture coming soon.

Peanut

Peanut

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

THANK YOU TO PEANUT'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Theresa Cardona

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