Gracie

Gracie

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!

Jan Clasen, Mathew Gann, Holly Stavis, Marie Jackson

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.


To date we've spent $556.31 on Gracie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $129.00 in donations.

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 $535.30 on Presley's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $122.00 in donations.

Baby and Zeus
Florida
Baby (and Zeus)

Meet Baby, a 10 year old, 3 pound little brother to Zeus. I'm the sweetest little fellow you could ever find. Zeus and I are being fostered in The Villages, FL

THANK YOU TO BABY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Irene and Peter Havas, Jim Shal in honor of Paula Shal, Kory Katz

12/19/14: Hi everyone, Zeus and Baby here. What a hectic few days we’ve had. Our mother was feeling really bad because she now works all day and didn't get home until late, so we really never got to go out and run and play anymore. She decided that it would be better for us to be adopted by someone who would give us lots of love and outside exercise too (very, very unselfish of her). So, since that decision was made, these very nice ladies from UYR came to our apartment to meet us and the feline members of our family, and it was decided that we would go home with them.

One of the ladies is our Foster Mom. We like her a lot and she sure does like us too. It was a long drive to her house, and Zeus doesn’t like to ride in the car, but we made it. There’s a resident Yorkie here, his name is Charlie. He’s a pretty kewl dude. We all get to sleep in the big bed with our Foster Mom and Foster Dad (of course we don’t take up a heck of a lot of space ‘cause we’re so tiny).

We went to the dogtor today and got shots. We both cried a little, but FM and FD held us tight and rocked us till the owie went away. The dogtor said that Zeus has a very collapsed trachea and it’s bad when he gets anxious (like riding in the car), so the dogtor gave Foster Mom some medicine for times like that and also to help him sleep. The dogtor said that Baby has a very deteriorated lower jaw probably from some gum infections over time.

Baby has had all but one of his teeth removed, but that doesn’t stop him from eating ground up food at all. We both have a bit of a skin rash, which could have been caused by fleas, but FM/FD will give us baths with medicated shampoo to make that all better.Both of us have to go back for boosters (yipes) and Baby has to be neutered (not sure what that means). Zeus will have to have some dental work done then too.

Well folks, that’s it for now. We’ll be sure to pop in and give you an update pretty soon. I know Foster Mom said we couldn’t go anywhere until we’re all spic and span and up to date with shots and everything. So, if you can wait a while, we should be available in another month or two but our foster mom said she would love you to submit and application for us, so we can be ready for our forever home when the time comes.

We have to be adopted together because we have always been together and we love each other very much. Please find in your heart to make us your forever babies. We're so little, we don't eat much or take up much room, but we sure do give lots love. Thanks for visiting. Z&B

Initial Bio 12-18-14 Baby is a ten your old tiny male yorkie. He weights a little 3 pounds. Baby is being fostered in The Villages, FL.

Baby and his bonded brother Zeus just came late last night into their new foster home. Baby is very small and very attached to his big brother Zeus so they will have to be adopted together. Baby has one tooth left, but that does not take away from his adorable face. Even with his little tongue hanging out he is just the most precious little fellow. Baby is trained to a potty pad and will use it. Baby and Zeus will be seeing the vet as soon as possible, so watch for updates coming soon.

Do you have room in your heart for these two sweet brothers?

Beemer

Shadow and Beemer
Florida
Beemer

Beemer is a sweet little guy, who is 4 years old. He weighs 5.6 pounds and is being fostered in Bunnell, FL

THANK YOU TO BEEMER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Nancy Stanley, Nancy Stanley

Initial Bio 3/11/15 Beemer was rescued from a backyard breeder and brought to a local shelter where he contracted kennel cough. He was severely matted and very filthy. His teeth are in horrible condition. He was flea infested and his eyes were dripping and crusty. Beemer was adopted from the shelter by a wonderful person who started his treatments for the kennel cough and his eye infection. He was bathed and cleaned up and the mats shaved off. He is now feeling wonderful.His former owner, who only had him a very short time, said she can already tell he is a very loving, gentle dog. He will need some house training and leash training, but he does not have a mean bone in his little body. Beemer will need to stay in his foster home until the kennel cough has been treated and he has had a dental, but we are taking applications for him. Because of his small size Beemer cannot go to a home with children under 14 years old.

Beemer is brand new today so watch for an update on him as his foster mom gets to know him better.


To date we've spent $282.89 on Beemer's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $76.57 in donations.

Boo Bear
Florida
Boo Bear

Boo Bear is about 7 years old. He is 9 pounds of sweetness, being fostered in Leesburg, FL

THANK YOU TO BOO BEAR'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Thomas Rice (Kiba Dickerson), Christine Pisano, Sarah Davies

Updated Bio 3/25/15 Boo Bear is the sweetest 9 pound, 7 year old boy. He is being fostered in Leesburg, FL

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 $905.00 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

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 $190.74 on Bubba's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1057.00 in donations.

Frankie
Florida
Frankie Lane

Frankie Lane is a 10 year old yorkie. He is 10 pounds and a real 10 in all ways. He is being fostered in Seminole FL

THANK YOU TO FRANKIE LANE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Leslie Carpenter-Sprout, Cheryl Scrupski

Here is a short video of Frankie Lane.

Updated Bio 3/16/15 Frankie Lane is a wonderful little guy. He is 11 years young, weights a perfect 10 pounds, and is being fostered in Seminole, FL.

Hi everybody. Finally the vet decided I do not have any awful disease. I am just a little incontinent. They gave me some pills and now I am doing great!! I do wear a belly band just in case but I do ask to go outside too. AND I LOVE to go on walks and bike rides. I sit in my FM Basket, when I see her getting ready to go on a bike ride I get real excited. I play with my toys and run, my Foster Dad says he doesn’t believe I am 11 because I am so active. Mom says I am the sweeties, most loving doggie she has ever had. She loves me I know and I know you would love me too if you saw me.

Update 02/13/2015: Frankie Lane is an adorable 10 year old 10 lb male yorkie; he is being fostered in Seminole, FL. He has had some recurring health issues which are being addressed. Please check back soon for an update on this sweet boy.

Updated Bio 11/18/14: This little boy is a real dear. He is sweet and loving – loves to look into your eyes and then cuddle up. He loves to play with his toys and prefers the squeaky toys but will play with anything. He loves to run and often does laps in the back yard. If you run he will run with you. He sleeps in his crate most of the time but when he gets up he will pull his blanket out of his crate. Sometimes he even pulls his blanket onto the bed or couch to sleep with it.

Frankie will take to your children, and he is a good boy around them. However he likes to bark when he sees kids outside. You need to be very careful when you open a door because he will bolt. His foster parents have found he doesn’t like bikes at all.

Frankie will go to the door to tell you he has to go out. He had a urinary tract infection and because of that he had been pottying in the house, but since he has completed his pills he only marks if you bring something new into the house. To make sure this doesn’t happen his foster mom puts a belly band on him and that solves that problem. He does have a sensitive tummy and need a Pepcid tablet or he will throw up. In spite of these few issues, he is really a sweet boy and such a loving, happy fellow. All his foster parents can say about him is this, “For a good time call Frankie, he is so much fun!!" Frankie has been waiting patiently for his forever home. Please consider this wonderful little fellow to be your own loving little guy.

Updated Bio 07/25/14: Hi I’m Frankie and I am in my new Foster Home. Have a big back yard to play in and I run like the wind, if FM is watching if not I jump on the door until she does. I have been very sick – had an infection on my back and lost my hair but it is growing in now – Brown – what’s a silver fox gonna do with that? My head and legs are white and very soft and pretty FM says. I love playing with my toys that she throws and got along really good with the kids that stayed here for a few weeks. I love to be petted and sleep in my crate right next to FM bed. I have had some stomach problems and have to take Pepcid for my tummy. When Fm opens my crate I take either my blanket or towel with me. FM thinks its sooooooo cute but I just like my stuff. I suck on my blanket at night. FM says I may be 10 years old but the fastest big baby she has ever seen. When I get a clean bill of health and if you want to be entertained by me the price is high a lot of pets. I can sit in your lap all day if you let me

INITIAL INQUIRY 03/22/2014: MEET FRANKIE LANE! He is an adorable 10 year old 10 lb male yorkie; he is being fostered in Seminole, FL.

Frankie Lane was surrendered by his owners who had him since he was a puppy - they were no longer able to care for him. He is a very lively and active little yorkie boy ~ his Foster Mom can hardly believe he is 10 years old as he acts like a puppy! One thing is for sure - Frankie Lane loves being with his person and seeks attention all the time - he craves human affection. He will see the vet next week for updated vaccinations, but he looks and acts healthy, has great teeth and shiny hair. He is very alert and overall a real sweetheart. So far, he hasn't exactly gotten along with FM's own little dog, but that may take some time. Stay tuned for more info as FM gets to know him a little better.

I've Been Adopted!

To date we've spent $436.34 on Frankie Lane's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $150.00 in donations.

Harley
Florida
Harley

Harley is a 15 month old, 9 pound Chorkie being fostered in North Port, FL

Update 03/02/15: Well what else can we say about Harley other than he is a charming little man that thrives on being picked up and carried around by FM!! He loves a playing with doggies his own size. He enjoys car rides and walks as well. He growls a little bit but does not bite. Harley needs a loving active home! Could that be yours?

Update 01/31/15: Foster mom and dad are thrilled to be fostering this little pup. Harleys sweetness is showing little by little. He likes to snuggle on a lap and sleep in his bed on foster dad and moms bed. Enjoys going for walks, car rides and playing with an assortment of toys.

Harley has not snapped at anyone and just likes to growl sometimes as a means of communication, specially if foster mom/dad are showering him with kisses. Harley still barks when he sees someone he does not know but it too is getting less and less frequent.

He gets along great with dogs of all sizes but of course would do better in a home with another doggie his own size. He is house-trained and crate trained as well. All Harley truly needs is a furever home that will provide him with tons of love and attention. If that home is yours, please let us know..

Update 1/17/15: Harley has had a rough life to date and he comes to us a very frightened little boy. We don’t know a lot about him other than he was surrendered to United Yorkie Rescue by a family who got him from another owner. This family had a toddler in the home and Harley did not take well to this situation.

Harley has been reported to have a history of fear nipping when a hand is reached toward him. He also sometimes cowers and tries to disappear into the floor when approached by humans. Sadly, these types of behaviors are often seen in dogs who have suffered abuse in their past. Harley’s FM thinks that with time, understanding, patience and above all LOVE that he can rise above his fear and become a REALLY GREAT LITTLE BOY.

Harley has just arrived in his foster home. So far he has tried to play with the other pups and is curious about the cats and birds. Stay tuned and come back soon to read more about Harley as we get to know him better.

Louie Lou
Florida
Louie Lou

Louie Lou is 7 years old and weighs 4 lbs 14 oz. He is being fostered in Leesburg, FL.

Updated bio 3/20/15 Louie Lou. Louie Lou is a spunky, 7 year old little fellow. He weights barely 5 pounds. Louie is being fostered in Leesburg, FL.

Louie has settled into his new foster home like he's been here forever. He came into United Yorkie Rescue with his daughter Maggie Mae. At first we thought they would need to be adopted together, but Louie always pushed Maggie away anytime she wanted attention or loving.

We decided to see how they would do apart and both dogs are much happier. Louie has a fenced backyard and all he wants it to chase and catch the "wildlife". Any squirrel, bird, or lizard is fair game. It doesn't matter to him that he hasn't come close to getting anything, he's having great fun trying.

Louie Lou is house trained and sleeps all night in his doggie bed. Louie loves to jump up on whatever he can. He also loves to run and will bolt out an open door. His foster parents are teaching him that he cannot go out any door except the one to the fenced backyard.

Louie is a great eater, even without any teeth. Due to his severe dental neglect all his teeth had to be removed and now his little tongue, that will kiss you all day, hangs out. It just adds to his rakishly good looks. Louie gets along great with his foster sister. He loves being held and cuddled by his people. He will follow them from room to room.

Although we were told Louie is 7 he acts like a much younger dog. Louie walks nicely on a leash, but a home with a secured fenced backyard would be much better for him. Due to his small size Louie cannot go to a home with children under the age of 14.

If you want the cutest, spunkiest little fellow, who wants nothing more than to give you kisses and be allowed to run around the backyard, then this little guy is for you.

UPDATED BIO 02/19/2015: Louie Lou and Maggie Sue are very bonded and kiss & lie next to one another all the time; for this reason, they must be adopted together. Since coming into UYR, Louie has been neutered and all 17 of his remaining teeth had to be extracted due to lack of proper dental care. Now his little tongue peeps out, which gives him such character.

Speaking of character, Louie Lou is one adorable and charismatic little man. He loves exploring the yard and smelling/sprinkling everything he sees. We are working on house-training and it’s progressing slowly. Louie loves loves loves attention, but mostly wants to snuggle close to you instead of being held. He is one busy little man – he can jump an 18” gate, and jump onto an 18” window sill to try to get to the squirrels & critters outside. He is definitely an alpha dog ~ and very important ~ he is a runner! He will dart out the door the first chance he gets and run like Beep-Beep the Roadrunner until caught. Whew! A fenced-in yard would be a plus.

Both Louie and Maggie love following their person from room-to-room; when FM gives Louie attention, Maggie Sue will run up and put her face right next to his so that she can receive attention, also. They are both very sweet and loving little doggies and love one another a lot.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to their small sizes, Louie & Maggie cannot go into a home with children under the age of 14 years old.

12/28/2015 MEET LOUIE LOU! He is 9 years old and weighs 4 lbs 14 oz. He is being fostered in The Villages, FL. Louie is Maggie Sue's father and they have been together since she was born (see her info below). They are very bonded and kiss one another all the time; for this reason, they must be adopted together.

Both he and Maggie were in a home where the owner was unable to care for them properly, and were surrendered to UYR so that they could have happier, and healthier lives. They were not up-to-date on their vaccinations and both had badly-infected, and painful, mouths ~ they will be getting a dental next week and it is likely that Louie will lose all of his remaining teeth, but he sure will feel better! His little tongue peeps out which gives him a great deal of character.

Louie Lou is one adorable and charismatic little man. He loves exploring the yard and smelling/sprinkling everything he sees. He is not house-trained, but once he is neutered, it will be much easier for him to know where he should and should not go. He loves attention, but mostly wants to snuggle next to you instead of being held; that could certainly change as their lives have been turned upside down recently and they are adapting very quickly to their foster home and foster parents. They want to be right next to you and follow you from room-to-room. When FM gives Louie attention, Maggie Sue will run up and put her face right next to his so that she can receive attention, also. They are both very sweet and loving little doggies and love one another a lot.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to their small sizes, Louie & Maggie cannot go into a home with children under the age of 14 years old.

Maggie Sue

Maggie Sue and Louie Lou
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 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.

Maggie is house-trained to use the wee-wee pad, which she prefers, but she will go outside when left out long enough. 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.

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


To date we've spent $0 on Maggie Sue's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $10.00 in donations.

Mikey
Florida
Mikey

Mikey is an adorable 7 year old, 10.2 pound little guy. He is being fostered in Leesburg, FL

Updated bio 2/17/15 Mikey is just about over his kennel cough. He will still need to be on some additional medication for the next 10 days since his trachea is still showing some signs of irritation from the cough. He is now up to date on all his vaccinations.He is heart worm negative and has been started on his heartworm and flea preventative. He will be getting his dental in two weeks after the cough is cleared up.

Mikey has come such a long way. He is not yet fully house trained, but he is getting there. His foster mom puts a belly band on him sometimes in the house, but his accidents with no belly band on are becoming less and less. Mikey has learned he is not the boss and he does not get to be in charge. He now no longer jumps up to get food when his foster mom and dad are at the table. He has learned to sit and to not grab, but to take things gentle from a person's hand. He understand what NO means and will respond. His tendency to be aggressive has been reduced to almost nothing. His foster parents still have work to do with him, but Mikey is very smart and a quick learner.

Mikey loves to be with people and when he can't see them he gets upset. He hates to be crated. Mikey needs someone home much of the time, who will be with him, and not leave him alone in the crate for hours at a time. He really would do best as an only dog. He loves to go on walks and is great on a leash, so he does not need a fenced yard, but someone ready and able to take him on good long walks a few times a day. He is great in the car and really wants to sleep on the bed with his people.

Mikey needs a strong leader or he will attempt to take over and be your leader. If you would like to be Mikey's leader and make this sweet, loving, and totally amazing fellow your friend and partner, please fill out an application for him. He'll be your best friend forever.

Initial Bio 1-29-15 Mikey has just come into United Yorkie Rescue. We already know a little about him. We do know he has kennel cough that will be treated right away. He is neutered and is just absolutely adorable. He is very friendly and full of energy. Although the shelter said he was 9 years old, he looks and acts so much younger. We know he hates to be crated and needs to be with his people.

Mikey will have his first vet visit tomorrow. He will be vaccinated, microchipped, and treated for dry skin and for his kennel cough. We hope he will be heartworm negative.

It is very likely Mikey won't be able to go to his forever home for several weeks until his kennel cough is cleared up.

Look for more information on Mikey coming after his vet visit.

OHarley
Florida
OHarley

Initial Bio 3-20-15 O'Harley arrived today and he is one big fellow. O'Harley is very cute 7 years old fellow, who weighs a way too much 20 pounds. He is being fostered in North Port, FL

Meet O'Harley. He owners sadly had to give him up because they could no longer care for him. He is a great dog, gets along with other dogs, walks nicely on a leash, rides great in the car and is a super eater. In fact he is such a good eater O'Harley will need to lose a few pounds. He is definitely too chubby. HIs foster parents plan on giving him lots of exercise and putting this guy on a diet.

His former owners said he is the sweetest boy around and loves to cuddle and be loved.

Harley will need a dental, a heartworm test, and get microchipped. Please watch for updates on O'Harley coming soon.

Reese
Florida
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 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.

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

Updated bio 3/4/15. Although Sailor gets along with other pups in the household, he wants to be the Alpha dog. Weighing 7lbs and 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.

Since he has no teeth, he is a slow eater so his Foster Mom feeds him away from his fur brother and sisters so they can't take his food from him. He does love to eat though!

Scout
Florida
Scout

Scout is a handsome 6 year old 14 pound Silky Terrier who is moving from TN to FL.

THANK YOU TO SCOUT'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Traci Vanover, Brenda Bargers, Beth Leintz, Renae and Jerry Sutley, Linda and Billy Camp, Nancy Carlson, Nestor Sanchez, Monica Rodriguez, Jessica Lundin, Cheryl Scrupski

Updated Bio 1/18/2015 Hey there everypuppy! My name is Scout and I'm a happy fellow who is full of lots of love to give! I am still searching for my Forever Home, but in the meantime I am truly enjoying my stay with my foster family. They have three other doggies for me to play with and even a cat. We have so much fun hanging out together. Foster mom says I have Diabetes so I have to get Insulin shots twice a day. I don't mind because I always get yummy food before the shot so I don't even notice it! I have a hard time seeing as well as my foster doggies because of the diabetes, but I think I get around great! I even can find my ball and bounce it all over the house, it is my favorite game! I am housetrained, but since I hate being trapped in a crate, when my foster parents are gone I wear something called a Bellly Band just in case I can't hold it till they get back. No biggie, it's nice to have another option because when you gotta go, well you gotta go! I am really excited to meet my new Forever Family!! I need someone who will love and care for my diabetic needs and who has the time and energy to love me forever and ever and ever....I am patiently waiting to meet you!!

Updated Bio 11/05/2014: SCOUT NEEDS YOUR HELP.

Scout is a wonderful dog with a gentle, loving soul. He has a look in his eyes that shows the love, loyalty and gratitude he feels for having been rescued. But Scout has a problem………You see, through no fault of his own, Scout is a victim of canine diabetes. He did nothing to deserve it…..HE IS SUCH A GOOD BOY……but twice a day, for the rest of his life he will need insulin injections to stay alive.

Scout’s former owner was no longer able to care for him and was considering euthenasia when United Yorkie Rescue stepped in to save him. You see……..Scout DESERVES to live……He is a happy, playful boy who follows his “people” everywhere, cuddles up by their feet, and spends days and days following them around like a young pup.

Since coming into UYR Scout now receives the utmost love, care and medical attention that he needs to have his best life. SADLY……. it takes more than the love of his devoted foster family to give him the life he deserves. It takes MONEY…..quite a bit of it too: $50 a month for special insulin, $15 a month for the syringes and needles needed to administer it, an additional amount for diabetic testing supplies, $30 a month for a high quality diet to keep his blood sugars at an acceptable level. So yes, it takes money to own and care for a diabetic dog. It requires more vet visits and sometimes a specialist to make sure everything is on track. However…….if Scout receives the care he deserves, he is likely to have the healthy and happy life that he deserves.

Remember when I said SCOUT NEEDS YOUR HELP! Here’s where you come in……..there are MANY ways you can help Scout.

1. ADOPT. The biggest and MOST important thing Scout needs is that special, FOREVER HOME from someone who is willing to accept his illness and be willing and able to care for his diabetes for the rest of his life. He is used to getting his insulin twice a day and sits perfectly quietly. Administering insulin is NOT HARD….ask any human who has Type 1 diabetes. HOWEVER Scout needs a FOREVER FAMILY that has the financial resources to give him the care he needs. LOVING SCOUT will not be a problem! This sweet boy will have ANYONE with a heart madly in love with him at FIRST SIGHT. PLEASE CONSIDER giving this special boy a look and ask yourself if YOU COULD BE THAT SPECIAL FAMILY that Scout so desperately needs……..

If you are NOT that family, then we understand……It is a big commitment and not one to be taken lightly BUT THERE IS STILL SOMETHING YOU CAN DO TO HELP.

2. DONATE. UYR is committed to Scout for the LONG HAUL…….both financially and emotionally. We have already found him a WONDERFUL FOSTER FAMILY who loves and adores him until we find that perfect FOREVER HOME. In the interim. If you can HELP US to HELP SCOUT by donating EVEN A SMALL AMOUNT towards his ongoing care then both Scout and UYR would be SO VERY GRATEFUL. Your donation will be used to purchase insulin and testing supplies, keep him on a high quality diet, and to help fund vet visits.

3. SHARE. If you can’t donate now, we understand that too. Even $1.00 helps, but if you can’t today then do so when you can. But if you could share Scout’s story with others who might be able to help him then it could make the world difference to Scout by allowing us to continue to help him.


To date we've spent $551.83 on Scout's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $483.00 in donations.

Shadow

Shadow and Beemer
Florida
Shadow

Shadow is an adorable little 4 pound yorkie. He is about 3 or 4 years old and is being fostered in Bunnell, FL.

Initial Bio 3/11/15 Shadow was rescued from from a hoarding situation from a backyard breeder and brought to a shelter where he contacted kennel cough. He was in horrible shape, severely matted, flea infested, teeth missing, dripping crusty eyes, and filthy. He was adopted by a wonderful person who ended up not being unable to care for him and he was surrendered to United Yorkie Rescue.

Shadow is very sweet and loving and just wants to be loved. He will need to be neutered. Shadow will need to gain about a pound, he is too thin at his weight right now.

Shadow will need some lessons in house training and leash walking, but he is so sweet he just wants to please, so he will learn fast to win his owner's praise.

Shadow will need to stay in his foster home until the kennel cough has been treated and he has had a dental, but we are taking applications for him. Because of his small size Shadow cannot go to a home with children under 14 years old.

Shadow is brand new today so watch for an update on him as his foster mom gets to know him better.


To date we've spent $201.89 on Shadow's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

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 $76.94 on Toby's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $5628.00 in donations.

Winnie

Winnie

Winnie is an approximately 5 year old 9 lb Yorkie being fostered in Delray Beach, FL

THANK YOU TO WINNIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

UPDATED BIO 03/14/2015: Winnie is a 5 year old 9 lb little girl who is being fostered in Miami, FL.

Winnie was rescued with one eye that had a mature cataract and one eye that was small, underdeveloped, and non-functional. With the help of some AMAZING donors, Winnie had her cataract replaced with a clear lens and had her nonfunctioning eye removed.

Well, Winnie's results weren't exactly as we had hoped. She still has poor vision, but it has improved somewhat from how it was prior to surgery. The doctor says it may be due to some degenerative changes in the eye from having the cataract for so long.... and that her vision may still improve with time. Now, that doesn't mean that Winnie can't get around! Winnie loves her walks and navigates around quite well. See, vision isn't the most important sense for a dog. If she lives in a house where furniture isn't moved around much, she will learn her way in no time. She is a SWEET SWEET little girl.

Winnie loves to eat (who doesn't!?), loves her walks, loves her squeak toys, and loves loves loves being with her person. She likes other dogs, but her favorite is her person. She is 100% housetrained. She does her business as soon as she's taken outside. She is such a doll, that we know the right home is out there for her. Winnie will see the specialist in 2 weeks, but she will be ready to be adopted soon and will remain on flurbiprofen drops (antiinflammatory drops) for at least a few months and will need to see an eye specialist 2x/year. If you think you are the home for sweet Winnie, please email her FM at jennrez@gmail.com! Thanks!!

UPDATED BIO 2/19/15: Winnie was rescued from a South Florida shelter. She is a healthy, young, house-trained, friendly little girl whose only problem was the fact that she had a cataract in her left eye which caused her to be mostly blind. Her right eye was undersized and nonfunctional.

Last week, Winnie, with the help of our very generous donors, was able to have her cataract removed and replaced with a brand-new lens. Her right eye was removed. Her eyesight is slowly improving because of residual swelling and some intraoperative bleeding that occurred. The doctor believes that in the next two weeks her vision will drastically improve. For now, Winnie is wearing the cone of shame proudly and continues to be a lovable huggable snuggable little girl who gets along with other dogs and loves everyone she meets.

Winnie wanted to thank everybody for this amazing opportunity.... for a young dog to be able to have a full and happy life.

UPDATED BIO 02/02/15: My name is Winnie. I am a 5-7 year old little girl who weighs 8.5 lbs and am being fostered in Miami, FL. I just wanted to say thank you to all the PAWsome people and pups out there who sent me some funds so that I could have my vision restored. I am SUPER excited to have my cataract surgery Thursday February 12th. YIPPEEEEEEEE. I am such a good girl. Foster Mom says once my eye is better, I have to stick around so I can see the doggy eye doctor for a couple of months. Then she says I will be scooped up because I am so good! I am housetrained, friendly, and am learning to play with toys. I hardly ever bark. I love my new life UYR helped me find. I know it's only going to get better. Licks and wags to all of you!!!!

P.S. My Foster Mommy gave me a haircut. Everyone says they think I look pretty darn cute! I was pretty matted.

xoxo - Winnie

Update Bio 01/25/15: Meet Winnie. She is a 5 year old 9 lb little girl who is being fostered in Miami, FL. Imagine going through life looking through a sheet of wax paper.... and that's probably putting it mildly. See, Winnie's right eye congenitally smaller than the other (they call that microphthalmia). It is also non-visual meaning she cannot see out of it. Her left eye, has a mature cataract which makes Winnie nearly blind. At only 5 years old, we think Winnie deserves better.

Winnie is a loving, affectionate girl who loves to sit on your lap and generally be close to you. That said, she is fine when you leave the house. She's not overly anxious. We haven't had a single accident in the house. She is truly a sweetheart.

Winnie is going to see a Veterinary Ophthalmologist on Tuesday. While he gives us a 50% discount on cataract surgery, it still costs $1100 (and we have spent over $700 so far on her vetting.... She is otherwise a healthy girl). We cannot do her cataract surgery until all $1100 is raised :(.

If you have it in your heart to give Winnie the gift of sight, please check out her donation link at YouCaring

If you cannot donate, please please please share her link in the hopes others may be able to help. Even $5 makes a huge difference towards reaching our goal! Thank you for your support!!


To date we've spent $2332.50 on Winnie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1824.00 in donations.

Mila
Georgia
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.

Chelsea

Chelsea and buddy Roxy
Illinois
Chelsea

COURTESY LISTING***

CHELSEA (ILLINOIS) Meet Chelsea in Chicago, IL. Chelsea will turn 5 on March 18th. She weighs 12 lbs. Chelsea is very affectionate and attentive. She loves to just hang out but is also very happy to go on a walk, or her favorite, take a trip to the dog beach where all the beachgoers will be wowed by how she is such a great little swimmer. She is well trained (pad and outdoor pottier) and has no negative tendencies to speak of. She does not like to be in a crate when left alone. While not a 'lap dog' she will cuddle up to you at every chance.

The family is heartbroken to have to give her up, but she has recently become aggressive with her sister dog, Roxy (who was adopted through UYR several years ago). Chelsea seems to be more happy in a smaller, quieter household. She has never shown aggression towards other dogs (even going to doggie daycare) or any humans. She does tend to be shy around small children.

If you think you can offer Chelsea the perfect Forever Home (with no small children or other pets) and you live in the Chicago area (or within a reasonable driving distance) please contact Allison at yorkierescue1@gmail.com

Serious inquiries only!

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

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?

Cooper
Illinois
Cooper

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

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!

Cleo and Honey Bee
Indiana
Cleo

Initial Bio 03/25/15: Cleo (age 12) and Honeybee (age 7) are owner surrenders from Bowling Green, OH. Sarah Pruiett picked them up on Saturday with the plan of her fostering Honeybee and Cheryl Ziegler fostering Cleo. They planned to meet up this weekend for the pickup. Sarah took both dogs her vet today for a dental. A blood panel showed Cleo is in the early stages of kidney disease. The vet said guessing today she would give Cleo 6 months to a year to live. She will begin medicine and a diet to help with her condition. It sounds as if we will make Cleo a Forever Ours pup, since her condition makes her unadoptable or less likely to be adopted. Cheryl is still willing to foster Cleo, however she works long days and this might not be the most suitable place for her considering her condition. I just wanted to check and see if anyone else might be able to take Cleo at this time and keep her as a Forever Ours dog. Please let me know. Attached is a plc of the 2 dogs. Cleo is closer to the cabinets and Honey Bee is in front.

Archie
Iowa
Archie (and Mr. Jiggs)

Archie is a 3 pound, 9 year old Yorkie male who was surrendered with his companion Mr. Jiggs. Both are being fostered in North Central Iowa and need to be adopted out together.

THANK YOU TO ARCHIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Elaine Thome, Katrina Hampton, Holly Stavis

Update 02/26/15: Well, we finally got our dentals and neutering taken care of. Boy are we glad to have that done. Our appetites have increased, and our energy level. We both had to have about 7 teeth pulled. All of our lab work was normal. All of our shots are now up to date. We got our ears cleaned, and our nails all trimmed up. We rested most of the day, our foster Mom told us she would let us walk around late this afternoon, she wanted to wait at least 24 hours after surgery. So about 4:00 we were up and ready to wander around. In a few days we will be all healed up and ready to go to our forever home when the time comes. Until then, we will keep updating you on how well we are doing. We really wish the weather would get warm so we can spend a few minutes outside. Until then we will cuddle with our foster Mom.

Update 02/12/15: We are getting along pretty good. We really like our foster home. Our foster mom is really trying to get us to eat better. She even adds pumpkin in with our food so it is easier to eat since our mouthes are pretty sore. We can't wait until we have our dental done. She is really good at giving us our medicine, and our ear drops. We get little ear massages after the drops, we LOVE that. We are house trained, but we need to be helped out the door because our legs don't work quite like they should. We can do it but when it comes to going to go potty the quicker the better getting outside. We are hoping after our neuter and dental that we will feel much better, so we can eat better, and hopefully our true personalities will shine through. We would really like a forever home with no children, and older dogs our age and size, but we would really like to be the only fur babies. We don't like a lot of excitement. So a quiet relaxed home would be great.

Initial Bio 02/02/15: Archie and his companion Mr. Jiggs were recently turned into a shelter in Sioux City. Their owners stated they traveled too much and no longer had time for the boys. Archie and Mr. Jiggs are both malnourished, weighing in at 3 lbs. and they are both too weak to be neutered or have a much needed dental. Foster mom is working hard to get the boys back on track and we will keep you posted on their progress. They are estimated to be 9 years of age and need to be adopted together.


To date we've spent $705.54 on Archie (and Mr. Jiggs)'s vet bills, but with your support we've collected $58.50 in donations.

THANK YOU TO BELLA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Traci Vanover, Linda Stancliffe, Cynthia Duranti

Update 03/24/15: Hello everyone, my name is Bella. I am a Cairn Terrier / Silky Terrier mix. I am still very much a puppy, but so smart. I am house broken, I will follow commands, as long as you are nice to me, you will have my respect and loyalty. I do not run off if I get outside, after all you're being nice so why run off right? I do bark at new people coming into our home, but will stop if I know they are welcome to be there, and you tell me it's okay. I have dry eyes, so I need drops in them everyday but that is not a problem because I will sit still while you do that. I am great with other dogs, and children. I like to play, and cuddle, go for car rides, and walks. I am almost perfect, or so my foster mom tells me daily. Would love a forever family that really wants me.

Love, Bella

UPdate 12/03/2014: Bella has had a rough life so far. After looking further into her issues, it has been noted that she probably has chemical burns on and around her eyes which is why she was in so much pain that she needed morphine. When she first arrived in rescue, Bella wouldn't/couldn't open her eyes. It was thought then that the reason was untreated dry eye. It was recommended that Bella have drops in her eyes 6-8 times a day which was a problem because she wouldn't let anyone near her face. To be able to even attempt eye drops, Bella had to be sedated first. Where as we know this is NOT a good solution long term, it did allow us to treat her eyes for a36 hours while we waited to get into the Opthamologist. During the appointment with the eye Doctor, it was noted that she had severe corneal ulcers that would probably need surgery to releave the pain and to hopefully restore what vision we could. We were sent home with several medications to try to get the healing process started before surgery - which could have happened today. I dropped Bella off at the vet at 6:45 this AM and just heard back from the Opthamologist. The drops we were able to get in have worked magic with her. The large, severe ulcer in her left eye is 100% healed and the smaller but deeper ulcer in her right eye is 98% healed. This is fantastic news for Bella!

We are unsure as to how much she can see, but as long as there is enough light, she can see well. At this time, Bella will not need surgery. The Opthamologist wants to see her every week for a month or so to ensure she remains on track medically.

The next step for Bella is to hopefully work with a behaviorist to help her learn how to tolerate the eye drops since she still does have Dry Eye. Bella also will need to work on her manners as her first response to someone new is to charge at them. Because of Bella's suspected abuse, she will need to learn to trust people again. Bella is a very active 10 month old pup who needs that special house to help her regain trust in people again. Once her medical needs are met, she will be available for adoption! If you are looking for a companion who loves walks, treats, a good game of fetch, and her own home, and are willing to work with Bella on her trust issues, Bella is the one for you!

Update 03/27/145: Carl is being altered on 4/8/2015. He has already become more comfortable with people. Today he spent time with Mister, the first foster I placed, Becky fell I love with him, she tried to fill out a form on the website but it wouldn't go through. Becky would really like to adopt him, so hopefully tomorrow she can make it work. In the mean time while we wait for his surgery she will have time to get to know Carl. Making sure Carl is going to be happy with them. Becky has a special gift with Mister, which makes me think she will with Carl as well.

Smiles from Iowa, Susan

Update 03/26/15: Hello everybody my name is Carl I've had quite a day today my first full day in Foster. I went to the veterinarian today had blood work done had all my shots, a heartworm test which was negative by the way. Went to visit one of my foster mom's friends at work and made a big hit there everybody wanted to hold me, then I got a bath didn't like that much but I know it's for my own good I was kind of dirty.

My knees are not good so I have trouble walking my eyes are not bad there just getting old I am nine years old I was born January 25, 2006. I need to be neutered, my breeding days are over thankfully, i'm 3.7 pounds, very lovable, very timid I may come out of my shell once I get used to people being nice to me, my foster mommy will keep everybody updated.

Sincerely, Carl

Initial Bio 03/25/15: Meet our newest male Yorkie, Carl, who was a breeder release from a puppy mill. His age is estimated at 9 years old. Carl arrived in poor condition so he went to the vet for blood work and an exam. The blood work came back ok, which is a huge relief, but the vet feels he is neurologic with probable hearing loss and vision impairment. Carl is unsteady and shut down. He has a hard time moving around, almost like his hips aren't working. He is not an ounce of snappy or nasty, in fact, when wrapped up in a blanket, he gently leans against you and falls asleep. We feel heartbroken for him, but foster mom will do everything she can to give him a quality of life that he never has had before. He is the poster child for why not to buy from pet stores!!! Stay tuned for more updates on this sweet boy.


To date we've spent $87.00 on Carl's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Update 02/26/15: Well, we finally got our dentals and neutering taken care of. Boy are we glad to have that done. Our appetites have increased, and our energy level. We both had to have about 7 teeth pulled. All of our lab work was normal. All of our shots are now up to date. We got our ears cleaned, and our nails all trimmed up.

THANK YOU TO BENJI'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Todd Loccisano, Todd Loccisano, Cynthia Duranti, Eric Tucker

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 $2396.87 on Benji's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $131.00 in donations.

Meet Charlie, an adorable 11 week old, 3 lb male Yorkie puppy. Charlie is being fostered in Stella NC.

Updated bio: 3/18/15 Charlie is a 5 pound, 3 month old Yorkie male being fostered in Stella, NC.

Charlie here: What a day - I went to the vet today and found out that I've grown a bunch! I weigh 5 pounds. Looks like I may be about 9-10 pounds full-grown. I got my first rabies shot today too. The vet says I look great! I'm scheduled for my neuter in April. That doesn't sound too good, but I trust my foster mommy knows best. :)

I hear her talking about me, and she says I'm crate training beautifully. I would have to agree! I like sleeping in there. The house training is coming along too. She says it's good that at least my accidents are closer to the back door when I have them, so I'm learning where to go. I'm a real smarty!

That's all for now! Talk to you soon. Puppy love from Charlie.

Updated Bio 3/10/15 Charlie is a 12-week old Yorkie male being fostered in Stella, NC

Hi Everyone, I am Charlie the new United Yorkie Rescue puppy. Wow! What a crazy week I've had... I'm at a new home now and my foster family is pretty cool. I have two foster siblings and get along great with them. They don't want to play as much as I do, but that's ok! I can't help it...I'm a puppy!

My foster mom says I'm doing good with house training. She scoops me up quick and takes me outside when I try to go in the house. Something tells me I'm supposed to go outside. I'm trying...I really am! She says I'm learning good. I like to sleep in my crate at night in my foster parents' bedroom. I like it in there - cozy and safe while I sleep. I don't make a sound.

I like to chew a lot! Foster mom says I can't chew on flip flops or fingers, so she gave me some chew toys. I love them! She also says I have a vet appointment next week so I can get my first rabies shot. I'll let you all know how that goes. Bye for now!

Puppy love from Charlie 🐾

Charlie will need his shots and neuter before any adoption can happen, but we are taking applications.

Because of his young age and small size Charlie cannot go a home with children under the age of 14.

Initial Bio 03/07/2015 Charlie came from owners who loved him very much. They had an existing Yorkie in their home and didn't know that they had a one pet only clause in their lease when they acquired Charlie. They reached out to UYR to help find Charlie a perfect new forever home.

Please stay tuned for updates on Charlie as his foster Mom gets to know him better!


To date we've spent $57.50 on Charlie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 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

Duchess
Tennessee
Duchess

Dutchess is a 7 year old, 6 lb. Yorkie female being fostered in Ashland City TN.

Dutchess came from a home where she was loved and well cared for. The only problem is that Dutchess lived in an apartment and when her human left to go to work it made Dutchess very unhappy so she barked. She barked a lot apparently because soon the neighbors began to complain to management about her barking. The owner was faced with a difficulty choice and decided to ask United Yorkie Rescue to help rehome Dutchess.

Dutchess is house trained, crate trained, leash trained and in good health. She does have a bit of a sensitive stomach so she does eat special food forumulated to be gentle on her tummy. She loves to get attention from her human. She also loves to play with her ball, go for rides in the car and go for walks.

Dutchess JUST arrived in her foster home today so stayed tuned as her foster mom get's to know her better!


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

Jack

Jack

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

THANK YOU TO JACK'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Tom and Carol Drummond, Barbara Rodriguez, The Garrison

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.


To date we've spent $1040.01 on Jack's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $230.00 in donations.

Lexie

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
Texas
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

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 $966.78 on Mason's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $566.00 in donations.

Rocco
Virginia
Rocco

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

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.


To date we've spent $146.00 on Rocco's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

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.

Pippi
Wisconsin
Pippi

Pippi is a 3.4 pound, 1 year old beautiful little Yorkie girl who turns one on Feb 14, 2015. She is being fostered in Sheboygan, WI

THANK YOU TO PIPPI'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Global Shopper, Erik Ebert

Update 03/20/15: *PLEASE Read Pippi's Entire Bio...

Pippi's new home *MUST* have a Fence!

She has so much spunk & energy!! Is good with commands such as No, Come, Outside. She knows "her spot" to eat, when I put their food bowls down.

She *LOVES* to be outside running, picking up the small tennis ball and then running and throwing it, just to get it again! She also Loves to play with my dogs.

She does not do Sit, Shake (give paw) etc. She'll back away, and I do not want to push her. She still is skittish from the first home she was in. I got my first Kiss from her today, so that made me happy!

Pippi sees the Vet Thurs. 03/24 to have her sutures removed. At that time, I will speak to her vet about having a dental to remove the nine baby teeth she still has. We will also go over her health. I will update after that visit.

Update 03/05/2015

"Please read her earlier post to get all Pippi's prior history."

She had her spay on 03/04/2015, and because there was a possibility of an Extrahepatic Shunt (Liver Shunt), her Dr. also performed an exploratory to see if one was present.

Per the Veterinarian...

The entire portal system and vena cava were traced, there was no indication of Extrahepatic shunting. This does not leave out the possibility of an Intrahepatic shunt, or Microvascular Dysplasia.

(Because Pippi was not showing any clinical signs of a shunt, she was taken off of the prescription LD diet and the Lactulose one month earlier.)

I am posting part of an article about Liver Shunts...to see in it's entirety, go to www.yorkiefoundation.org

This condition is often referred to as a "liver shunt" but the current favored term appears to be portosystemic shunt. These have also been referred to by more exact terms since there are specific types of shunts that vary slightly.

There are three shunt types: intrahepatic, extrahepatic, or microvascular. The most common is Portosystemic shunt (PSS) occurs in many dog breeds the Yorkshire Terrier is one. It is an abnormal flow of blood between the liver and the body. Since the liver is responsible for detoxifying the body, metabolizing nutrients and eliminating drugs, the blood bypassing the liver can cause indications of a possible PSS which might include, but are not limited to, neurobehavioral abnormalities, anorexia, hypoglycemia, intermittent gastrointestinal symptoms, urinary tract problems, drug intolerance, unthriftiness and stunted growth.

Update 2/10/15: Pippi loves to cuddle with you, but give her a few days to trust. The same goes when picking her up. Pippi is great with other dogs, is good with my 9 year old grandson, and is also very good around men. Cats I'm not sure of, but given her personality, she would probably want to play.

She is potty pad trained, but it will take about 1 week for her to start using it in a new home. She also lets me know when she needs to go outside. She will stand by the door, stop eating her food and walk away, or just keep looking at me.

She loves to sleep in bed with us and will sleep all night. First thing in the morning is to let her outside.

Pippi was diagnosed with a possible Liver Shunt, and her very loving & caring owner wanted to give Pippi the best, so with much sadness she surrendered her to UYR.

What makes Pippi's case difficult is that she does not have any clinical signs of the most common, Portal Systemic Shunt. She does have elevated post prandial biles acids & an elevated ALT, but not to the point where you can definitely say it's a portal shunt. This is what makes her situation complicated.

There are two ways to proceed...while she is having her spay, a liver biopsy can be taken. This would either confirm, or eliminate any other liver malfunctions.

One that is also seen in yorkies is Microvascular Dysplasia. This would be diagnosed by doing a liver biopsy. This liver defect consists of many small shunts running all through the liver. It can not be surgically fixed, but it can be managed with medication and a special diet.

The other test that may or may not need to be done is called a scintigraphy. This would need to be done, if a liver biopsy doesn't show Microvascular Dysplasia or another liver abnormality.

Pippi also has approximately 9 baby teeth that need to come out at the time of her spay and biopsy.
