Pumpkin Pi

Pumpkin Pi is a 20month old, 5 pound Yorkie male being fostered in Bryant, AR.

Initial Bio 9/18/20 Pumpkin Pi is the cutest little boy and loads of fun. He is 20 months old, and weighs about 5-6 pounds. His fur is a soft silver, with light tan on his head. He is being fostered in Bryant, AR.

Pumpkin is scheduled for his vet well check on 9- 29 and we will know more on his health at that time. He is up to date on all his vaccines and has been on heartworm medication. Pumpkin is not neutered and he was scheduled for that 10-29.

Pumpkin is a blast! At 20 months of age, he has a lot of playful energy, has a great personality, and boy does he love loving! As an owner surrender, and he was never allowed outside, so we are working on his house training. He will use a potty pad and currently wears a belly band. He was not allowed up on the furniture and went wild the first time he found out it was ok. He will not yet jump up on his own or use the ramp by the couch. He is a total love bug. Pumpkin would like to find a new home where his owner was available most of the time to give him a lot of attention and loving and to continue working on his house breaking. He seems to crave attention.He loves to eat!

I t is unkown if he does well with children (although there was a baby in his previous life) or cats

Pumpkin appears to be intelligent and willing to please. He is just happy, happy and his tail wags a mile a minute. He has soft cottony fur that is nice to pet and scratch. This little boy pure joy!


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

Snicker Doodle

Snicker Doodle is a 3 year old, 4 pound Yorkie boy being fostered in Bryant, AR.

Initial bio 9/18/20: Snicker Doodle weighs a skinny 4 pounds, his little ribs just stick out, so we are working on his gaining weight. Snickers is extremely shy and frightened. He would not do well in a home where he was submitted to a lot of people coming and going. He just hides and is miserable in strange situations. When he gets warmed up and feels more secure, he will lay in your lap and let you love on him. He is also up to date on his vaccines and is on heartworm medication. He has his vet well check on 9-29. As long as he checks out healthy, he will be ready to be adopted after that time. He is already neutered.

Because of his small size, he will not be adopted to a home with small children or large dogs. If you have a super dominant dog in the home, Snickers is not for you, as he was bullied and pushed around by another dog in his previous home. Poor baby just runs and hides, shakes, and womn't come out when called. He also was not allowed outside in his previous home, so house broking is an on-going lesson. He wore a belly band all the time in his previous circumstances , and he wears one here while he is up and around and he sleeps without it. He is extremely sweet once he gains confidence in you.

He was not was allowed on the furniture and does not seem to know what snuggling is Snickers has not yet gained enough confidence to stay on the furniture once he is placed there. He has made progress since his first day, but he is slow to trust and accept new people.

Brandi

Brandi is an adorable miniature Schnauzer mix. She is 9 years old and weighs 12.5 pounds. Brandi is ready to be loved. Brandi is being fostered in Clearwater, FL.

Due to Covid-19 all dogs in Florida must be adopted in Florida.

THANK YOU TO BRANDI'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Scott Hall, Sandy Pagnotta, Amelila Urso

UPDATED BIO 09/12/2020: Sweet Brandi came to us from the shelter where she had previously been, was adopted, and then somehow ended up on the street again. Her overall condition was very poor and when the previous owners were contacted and told that she was there, and that there would be a citation issued due to neglect, they decided that they didnt want here anymore. Brandi was matted to the skin and covered in sticker plants. She had severe skin dermatitis possibly from fleas. Her skin was rough and there were areas of hair loss. The kind folks at the shelter immediately went to work to help her feel better and then reached out to UYR. Of course, we are a yorkie rescue group, but when the shelter reached out to not only us, but other rescue groups in the area - there was not one other rescue group that stepped up for this sweet girl. Not even one. Yes, we are a Yorkie rescue, but Brandi needed us and that is what we do. So, if you are wondering why a Yorkie rescue took in a Schnauzer mix, we say Why Not?

Brandi has had several baths since arriving in UYR and has also seen the vet. She does have a skin yeast infection and is currently being treated for that. We are hopeful that her skin condition is due to the fact that she wasnt cared for properly until she arrived at the shelter. Brandi had some things to say about the turn of events in her life since she arrived in her foster home read her comments below

My name is Brandi. I am partially house-trained, but could use some refresher lessons. I am really smart and respond to basic commands. I get along with other dogs, but mostly I ignore them. I really focus my energy on being the center of attention and being held, loved and cuddled by my humans. I went to the vet this week and I am healthy and playful and I am freshly-groomed and smell soooo much nicer. My ideal home would be a home with a fenced backyard so I can roam around and play. I would love to be adopted by someone who can spend a lot of time with me, maybe someone who works from home or is retired.

I would likely not be very good in an apartment or condo because I have a very high-pitched bark when I get excited which could upset some neighbors. Most of the time I am very quiet and I love nothing more than to be right beside my human or on their lap. Oh, did I mention I absolutely love going on car rides with my human? I will lay beside you and you can pet me a lot my foster parents will be happy to talk to you about doggie seat belt harnesses so that I am safe in the car its kinda like a human seat but for doggies like me! If you think I would be a happy addition to your family, please reach out to my foster parents or click on the adoption application below. I will love you forever and ever ..

PLEASE NOTE: We do not know any history with Brandi and children; however, we feel she may be okay with children who are 14+ years old.

Initial bio 9/8/20 Say hello to Brandi. This sweet, friendly little girl found herself in the shelter through no fault of her own. She had been adopted and somehow ended up on the street again. Animal control picked her up and took her to the shelter. When the shelter saw the condition she was in they couldnt believe it. They contacted they owners and told them they had her in the shelter. The owners knew if they went to get her, they were going to be issued a citation due to neglect, and so they didnt come for her. Brandi was matted to the skin and covered in sticker plants. She had severe skin dermatitis possibly from fleas. Her skin was rough and there were areas of hair loss.

The shelter immediately started treating her for everything. They cut out the mats and brushed her out. She was given a medicated bath every other day and put on medication for the skin infection. She is so much better. Her skin infection has cleared up and she is no longer itching. She will need her skin checked by the vet to make sure she won't need continued care and treatment.

This sweetheart is so friendly. Brandi met her United Yorkie Rescue angel with her little tail just wagging away. She knew she was getting out of the shelter. She was so happy she was jumping all over and barking with joy. Her bark was a little squealy but that was okay. The shelter tech said she was pretty quiet inside, but she knew as soon as she saw she was out of there that it was going to be her best day ever. She let a harness be put on her and had no trouble being handled and petted. She was great in the ride to her foster home. This little girl knows love and care is coming her way and life just got wonderful.

Brandi will get groomed and see the vet this week. After the vet visit, we will know more about her skin condition and general health. We hope for a good report. Brandi deserves only happiness, love, and care from now on until forever.

We do not know how Brandi will be with kids, cats, and other dogs so come back soon to find out.


To date we've spent $258.91 on Brandi's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $97.00 in donations.

Dougy

This adorable little guy is Dougy. Dougy is a yorkie mix who is 10 years old. He is 7 pounds. Dougie is being fostered in Miami Beach, FL.

Due to Covid-19 dogs in Florida must be adopted in Florida.

THANK YOU TO DOUGY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Mindy Samaroo

Initial Bio 9/13/20 Dougy was sadly surrendered by his owner when they knew they could no longer give him the care he needed. Dougy is an almost perfect little fellow who loves everyone. He loves his walks and does great on his car rides. He only needs some help with his house training. Even though he has been neutered for many years, Dougy will mark in his home to make sure the other dogs also living in his home know that he is top dog. Dougy is otherwise a sweet, well-behaved pup, but he obviously prefers to be the only pup in his house and he will mark his territory to let you know that.

Dougy only just arrived at his foster home, and although his foster mom will be working with Dougy on his house training issue it may be determined that a home where there are there are no other dogs, and where there is a mom or dad home most of the time to take Dougy out often, would be the best forever home for Dougy. Dougy might prefer a home with adults only and maybe with one or two older kids who would be okay with a dog who likes to cuddle a lot.

Please come back soon and get to know Dougy along with us.


To date we've spent $0 on Dougy's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $50.00 in donations.

Pearl

This adorable little Yorkie girl is Pearl. She is estimated to be between 8-10 years old and weighs a tiny 5.1 pounds. Pearl is being fostered in Vero Beach, FL.

Due to Covid-19 Florida dogs can only be adopted within the state of Florida. No exceptions can be made.

THANK YOU TO PEARL'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Don and Jen Calton, Debbie Driscoll, Irene and Peter Havas in memory of darling Happy, Sandy Pagnotta, Marcela Jativa Castaneda

UPDATED BIO 09/05/2020: Pearl is an adorable little dog who is estimated to be between 8-10 years old. She was sold on Craigs List presumably by a breeder who no longer wanted her and a wonderful, loving family responded and ended up picking her up and taking her home with them. Unfortunately, the resident family dog wasnt as fond of Pearl, so her family reached out to United Yorkie Rescue to see if we could bring her into our foster care program and of course, we said YES!

Pearl has been in her foster home for 4 weeks now. Although she is not quite as skittish as she was, she is still very shy, and especially so of men. Pearl has relaxed around FM and doesn't run away every time she meets someone new. It will take some adjusting to love and affection, but FM knows that is what Pearl really wants.

Pearl loves long walks and gets along with both dogs and kitty cats. She recently had a spay and a dental. Sadly, because Pearl had most presumably never received dental care in the past, she lost most of her teeth. This doesnt seem to bother her much and she has no problem eating. Once she has recovered from her surgeries, she will be ready to go to her forever home.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Pearl's tiny size, she can only be adopted into an adult-only home.

Initial bio 8-20-20 Could anything be cuter than this little Pearl of a girl? Sweet Pearl arrived at her foster home just this evening. Pearl had a rough start. We are pretty sure she was a breeder dog for a backyard breeder. A dog this small and this adorable, what a perfect dog to make more and more puppies for someone who only wanted to make more and more money. When they were done with her, she was advertised on Craig's List for anyone who would pay the fee to come and get her. Lucky for Pearl a wonderful, loving family paid that fee and took her home. Unlucky for Pearl the family dog didn't like her and let it be known she didn't want Pearl in her family.

Pearl's first angel knew despite the fee she paid, Pearl needed to go to a rescue where she would be cared for loved until the perfect forever family is found for her. And so Pearl became a United Yorkie Rescue pup. Pearl will see the vet very soon and will get scheduled for her spay and dental. This girl will never have to worry about being used to make puppies for sale again. She will only know love and kindness from now on.

UPDATE ON PEARL: Pearl has her vet visit today. She weighed 5.1 lbs. Because of the advanced dental disease the Vet believes she is a much older dog than we were led to believe. Once the infection has cleared up Pearl will have a dental and a spay. With all of the pain she must be in she sure is sweet. She is starting coming out of her shell and is not retreating every time she is spoken to. It is still too early to say what her personality will be.

Pearl has let us know that she is ready to be loved and give love. She wants to cuddle. She wants a lap to sit on and a person to give her that lap forever. Are you that person? Pearl is very small, therefore it's an adult only home for petty Pearl.

There is much more to know about Pearl. Come back soon to learn those things with us. Welcome to UYR, little Pearl.


To date we've spent $990.98 on Pearl's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $270.00 in donations.

I am cute. I am ready to be loved and cared for

I feel better but my care may be expensive. Please help me get it.
Florida
Rusty

He is a Pomeranian/Chihuahua mix. Rusty is 6-1/2 years old and weighs 7.8 pounds. He is being fostered in Jacksonville, FL. Due to Covid-19, dogs being fostered in Florida must be adopted in Florida. No exceptions can be made.

UPDATED BIO 09/05/2020: Rusty here. I am adjusting to being with foster mom and the other foster dog here and the kitty cat. It's a lot different than it was at the shelter and a lot better. The shelter folks were very nice to me but being here is much more comfortable. I have a big yard where I can go potty and run around if I want. I am getting to know my doggie sister and the cat. I am trying to go slow when I go towards them but sometimes I get excited and it scares them and me!

Foster mom has me wearing this thing she calls a belly band. It keeps her from watching me all the time when Im inside in case I have an accident in the house. I drink lots of water because of the steroid medication I take, and that makes me have to potty more often. I get to go out frequently so I dont have many accidents. The other effect of this medication is increased weight. Foster mom said that when it is stopped, my perfect weight should still be between 7-8 lbs.

I got to see a different dogter today. He thinks I'm only about 6 years old which is younger than we thought. All the tests results are finally in and there is no evidence of any Tick-borne disease, so that is a good thing. I will be able to stop the antibiotic once I finish what came from the shelter. I have to continue the steroid for another 3-4 weeks. Then we will repeat those tests to see how I am doing. I still am unable to get any vaccinations until my health gets better.

Heres a note from Rustys foster mom: Rusty has had some specific labs and currently he has a diagnosis of Lupus which affects his immune system. There is a possibility that the testing done initially may have resulted in a false positive due to his critical body condition when he first arrived at the shelter. Repeat testing will give us a more definitive result. Rusty will need to stay in his foster home for at least two (2) months and will have follow-up labs these follow-up labs will determine if he does indeed have Lupus, and if so, we can develop a treatment plan. If the updated labs determine that Rusty does have Lupus, there are immunosuppressants that can be used effectively and do not include the side effects of the steroids (excessive thirst and weight gain).

Rusty is readily adjusting to his new environment. He likes to be held and gives great kisses. He does have a loud and high pitch, and we are working on that with gentle correction. It is currently unknown what the future holds for Rusty based on his health needs, and we will know more in a couple of months when the updated labs are done. We are hopeful that Rusty has a good prognosis, but we are committed to doing whatever needs to be done for this sweet little fella.

Although we are taking adoption applications for Rusty at this time, his adoption plans are on hold until we have a definitive diagnosis and treatment plan. All adoption applications will be held until that time. Please come back often to read about Rustys progress. His testing will be expensive, so if you would like to donate towards his vetting, please click on the Donate button below.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Rustys small size, he can only be adopted into a home with children 14+ years old. It would be wonderful also if Rusty had at least one stay-at-home parent in his adoptive home.

Initial bio 9/1/20 Meet Rusty. This sweet little guy was found very early one morning by the shelter staff leashed onto the door of the shelter. He must have been there all night. He was full of fleas and barely able to walk. He was severely underweight. The shelter immediately took him in and started to treat him. He was listed as critical care. He was anemic and in pain. They did blood work which showed hypophosphatemia, an electrolyte disorder where there is a low level of phosphate in the blood. Although he is not in kidney disease his blood work indicated his kidneys were not functioning as they should be. Rusty was treated for all this in the shelter and has remarkably improved in all areas, but he still has more testing and vetting to go through.

Rusty is now in his foster home and will be given lots of food and love. We don't know everything there is to know medically about Rusty, but whatever we find out we will care for him and do everything we can to make him well. There is no telling yet, what the future holds for him except he will be very cared for and will never ever be abandoned again.

Yes, we are a Yorkie rescue, but this dog needed us and that is what we do. So, if you are wondering why a Yorkie rescue took in a Pomeranian mix, we say why not. Rusty's medical bills may become expensive. Please help us by making a donation to this adorable guy. He needs to know people care, and this is the best way you can show him.


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

Sweetie

Sweetie is an adorable little female Terrier Mix who is 3 - 4 years old and weighs 11 lbs. Sweetie is being fostered in Tallahassee, FL. Sweetie came into UYR heartworm positive. Due to Covid-19, all Florida foster dogs must be adopted by Florida residents at this time. No exceptions will be made.

THANK YOU TO SWEETIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

THANK YOU TO SWEETIE'S FACEBOOK DONORS!

Karry Rogers, Jill Landers, JT Tara King, Anne Hicks

UPDATED BIO 09/05/2020: GREAT NEWS! Sweetie has had her last two heartworm injections and is doing really well in her foster home. She must be kept calm and quiet and her activity restricted for the next month. She will also be on anti-inflammatory drugs during this time, and will return to the vet for a heart/lung check in a few weeks to ensure that all is well. At that time, Sweetie will be ready for her forever home. Because Sweetie has been asymptomatic, she is expected to make a full recovery - Hooray!

Sweetie continues to live up to her name and loves everyone she meets. She is a shy little girl, but warms up very quickly and loves loves LOVES attention. Sweetie is house-trained to go on pee-pee-pads and she will also do her business outside if she is given time to walk around and survey everything first. Its a treat to see that only the mention of her name makes her tail wag so fast its a blur!

Sweetie is very obedient, has such a gentle little nature and is full of personality. She still isnt interested in toys at this time, and may have never been offered toys in her previous homes, but her Foster Mom is engaging her every day with squeaky toys, so hopefully play time will come soon. Right now, the sound of squeaky toys is scary, but she is also sensitive to loud noises, especially thunder. She is wearing a Thunder Shirt which is helpful during thunderstorms that happen daily in Florida. Hopefully she will soon become desensitized to the thunderstorms. She has found a safe place where she feels comfortable when the storms are brewing.

Sweetie gets along with the resident dogs in the home although her humans are the most important companions for her. She has not engaged in play with the other dogs as of yet she is way more interested in being with humans. She may enjoy one other dog close to her age and size as a companion. In her former home, she was one of five dogs in the home, and she was bullied by another dog only slightly larger than her that had a more enthusiastic personality, so a home with a calm, well-mannered dog will be best for her. She would also be happy being the only dog in the home since she craves human interaction.

Sweetie would be happiest in a home where she wasnt left alone for more than four (4) hours. She is very much tuned into her persons, and she would be very sad to be left alone for longer periods. Sweetie has been around children in her foster home, and interacts well, but foster mom feels she would be okay in a home with well-behaved children 12+ years.

UPDATED BIO 08/25/2020: Sweetie came into UYR on 05/30 and has settled into her foster home very nicely. She was surrendered by her owner who was unable to care for her due to health issues of her own. Sadly, Sweetie was also not given heartworm preventative in her previous home, and she is heartworm positive.

Sweetie has already begun the treatment protocol established by the American Heartworm Society. She must remain in her foster home until her heartworm treatment is completed; her first Immiticide injection was on 08/03, and she will have the second & third injections on 08/31 & 09/01. Immiticide is an arsenic-containing compound so Sweetie must be kept very quiet with crate rest and restricted exercise during her treatment. She will have a heartworm test 30 days after her last injection and if negative, she will be ready for adoption around mid-October.

Please don't forget about Sweetie. Sweetie's heartworm treatment will be approximately $800, so we are reaching out to our angel donors and asking for donations to cover this large unexpected expense. UYR would never turn away a potential foster dog that has tested positive for heartworms, and your donation(s) will enable us to continue to rescue and treat other incoming foster dogs that may be heartworm positive. If you are unable to donate, please say some prayers that Sweetie will be able to endure the upcoming rigorous heartworm treatment without complications.

UPDATED BIO 07/26/2020: Sweetie was surrendered by her owner who was unable to care for her due to health issues of her own. Sadly, Sweetie was also not given heartworm preventative in her previous home, and she is heartworm positive.

Sweetie is a delightful little girlie who loves loves LOVES human attention! She is so very loving and is a smart little cookie - she is already house-trained to pee-pee pads. She is learning that if she does her business outside, she will get a treat, so that is a work in progress. She has realized that going outside is great F-U-N and now scampers to the door when Foster Mom asks her if she wants to go out.

Sweetie's heartworm treatment will be approximately $800, so we are reaching out to our angel donors and asking for donations to cover this large unexpected expense. UYR would never turn away a potential foster dog that has tested positive for heartworms, and your donation(s) will enable us to continue to rescue and treat other incoming foster dogs that may be heartworm positive. If you are unable to donate, please say some prayers that Sweetie will be able to endure the rigorous heartworm treatment.

UPDATED BIO 06/10/2020: Sweetie was surrendered by her owner who was unable to care for her due to health issues of her own. Sadly, Sweetie was also not given heartworm preventative in her previous home, and she is heartworm positive. This is unfortunate as now this precious little angel has to endure months of heartworm treatment and strict confinement and crate rest. She has already begun the treatment protocol established by the American Heartworm Society. Sweetie must remain in her foster home until her heartworm treatment is completed, which is expected to be the first two weeks of October.

Sweetie had a dental yesterday and her teeth are sparkly white. She is such a polite little girlie who only wants to be next to her person and give them tons of kisses. If Sweetie participated in a Doggie Kissing Booth Challenge, she would win hands-down! She is shy when first meeting someone, but warms up easily. She walks well on a leash and is improving with her house-training skills.

Sweetie is a delightful little doggie who is very obedient and has such a gentle little nature and personality. She isnt interested in toys at this time, and may have never been offered toys in her previous homes, but that could change as time goes on. She gets along fine with the resident dogs in the home. House-training is going good now that she understands where it is and is not an appropriate place to do her business. She is a smart little girl and wants to please her person, so she learns very quickly.

Although Sweetie will not be medically cleared for adoption until October, if you are interested in adopting her, please contact her foster mom for more details, or submit an adoption application which will be held until she has completed her heartworm treatment.

UPDATED BIO 06/03/2020: Sweetie has only been in UYR for several days now she was surrendered by her owner who was unable to continue to care for her due to health issues of her own. Sweetie came with no history of vaccinations and no vetting in the past year in the previous owners home, so she had a big day at the vet yesterday getting a thorough exam and having all her vaccinations brought up-to-date.

Sadly, Sweetie was also not given heartworm preventative in her previous home, and she is heartworm positive. This is unfortunate as now this precious little angel has to endure months of heartworm treatment and strict confinement and crate rest. She has no outward signs of heartworms, so that is a good thing and she has already begun the protocol established by the American Heartworm Society. She must remain in her foster home until her heartworm treatment is completed, which is expected to be the first two weeks of October.

INITIAL BIO 05/30/2020: Sweetie just arrived into UYR today she was sadly surrendered by her owner who was unable to continue to care for her due to health issues of her own. Sweetie is just that - a real sweetie who is a bit timid, but is active and loves to give kisses. Theres so much more to know about her, and she will see the vet on Tuesday to have her vaccinations updated, and have a thorough exam. Stay tuned to learn more about this little girlie.

Her health records indicated that as been diagnosed with epileptic seizures. This requires her being fed and medicated every 8 hours around the clock.

Royal Canine urinary SO. 1/4 cup 3 times daily with her meds.

Ivy has also developed skin allergies that also effects her eyes. She sees fine but needs ointment 2 to 3 times a day in both eyes. The allergies have also effected her

skin. It gets very flaky and itchy. Ivy has been put on apoquel once daily to alleviate this. Also careful washing with an oatmeal shampoo or prescription shampoo helps with the flaky skin.

We are awaiting a date for her spay. From the look of her nipples it is apparent that she did have a litter of puppies at one time. Her surrender parents have had her for 2 years as she just wandered in one day in poor condition and have kept her since then.

If you feel that you have the love and the time and finances to care for this little one please fill out an application for adoption. Also no children under 12years old. No large dogs and only one other small dog would be allowed. And fenced yard required. Also if approved to adopt you must be able to travel to pick her up and be in the State of Georgia.

Updated bio 9/5/20: Turbo is doing extremely well. At his initial vet examination, he tested negative for heartworms, but positive for hookworm and another parasite. He is in the middle of medication. He is due to receive his last dosage on September 8th. Turbo will need to see a vet three weeks after that to re-test to ensure he is parasite-free.

Turbo is a good snuggle buddy. He will curl up in foster mom's lap and sleep the day away. He has a sweet personality, and he really likes to please his foster mommy and daddy.

Initial bio 7/29/20: Meet Sweet and Handsome Turbo. He is a Combat Veteran Yorkie whos daddy passed away overseas. Turbo was loved and cherished by his dad for his entire life until this happened. Turbo is in need of a new home. No one in the family was able to keep him because they lived in a place where no dogs are allowed. They reached out to United Yorkie Rescue because Turbo deserves the best home to enjoy the rest of his life. He needs a place where someone is home most of the time. Turbo loves being with his person and gets a bit anxious when left by himself. Turbo loves to play ball and sleep with his human. He will be visiting the Dogtor soon for a checkup and we are pretty sure he will need a dental. Please stay tuned for more information as we get to know this sweetheart better.

Tinkerbelle

Tinkerbelle is a estimated 10 year old Yorkie girl who weighs 6 pounds and is being fostered near Nashville ,TN.

NO ADOPTIONS OUT-OF-STATE DUE TO COVID-19

THANK YOU TO TINKERBELLE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Mary Hunton, Glenys Cespedes, Angie Cagle, Barbara Burgess

Updated bio 9/12/20: Tinkerbelle is doing great at her foster moms house! She has gained some hearing back and loves playing with her foster brothers and sisters! Tinkerbelle is house trained and will actually bark at you to let you know she needs to go out to use the bathroom. She is a smart little girl! Following her foster mom around is one of her favorite things to do. She never lets her get too far out of her eyesight. If you want a Velcro puppy she will be perfect! She will not be adopted out to any house that had bigger dogs or with small children due to her tiny size and at times she can be bossy to her foster brothers and sisters. Stay tuned for more updates!

Initial Bio 06/22/2020 Meet Tinkerbelle she is an estimated 10 year old Yorkie being fostered in Nashville, TN. Tinkerbelle has hearing problems due to recurrent chronic ear infections that have left her with cauliflower ear. She is being treated for this condition and it seems to thankfully be improving. this is an issue that will need to be monitored closely. We believe that she can hear better now that the condition is improving. She is house trained and will let you know when she wants something by barking at you. She is very good at getting her point across. She follows her foster mom everywhere she goes and is definitely a Velcro baby! She is sooo sweet and loves to go on walks and lay on the couch next to her foster mom and dad. She gets along pretty well with her foster brother and sisters but will let them know if she is not in the mood to mess with them. Tinkerbelle would be fine in a home with or without another dog however children would not be a good fit for her. She was just spayed last week and brought current on shots. She will go back to the dogtor this week for a check-up on for her ear condition. Please stay tuned for updates on this precious girl!

UPDATE BIO: 07/29/20. Precious Boscoe came into rescue after living a life that no baby should have lived. He was attacked by a larger dog, suffered a horrific eye injury which left his eye paralyzed, and he lost all of his lower jaw, all without medical care. Not only did he endure this a few years ago, he was also left behind with one bowl of food after his owners up and moved. Coming into United Yorkie Rescue, Bosco is now in a quiet safe loving home where food is never a worry, dogs will not attack him, and there are plenty of belly rubs full of love to enjoy.

Last week Bosco underwent surgery and we removed his sightless damaged and weepy eye. This past weekend he started with an infection around his sutures which we have added additional antibiotics to, and are now running cultures to stay ahead of this. This is not uncommon with an eye that was already compromised with infections needing 4 medications, 4 times a day. Bosco is also learning how to navigate with the cone, but he still cannot figure out how to burrow under his blanket without a little help from his foster momma. While Bosco heals from this enucleation of his right eye, we will soon address Bosco's remaining eye. He has a cataract in his remaining good eye;and has been told he is a candidate for the correction. He has adapted very well with his limited vision. He may need someone to keep an eye out for him at the top of stairs and around open water, otherwise he acts very sighted. We pray that his future will hold hope for cataract surgery and will become a reality. In the meantime, this brave little boy is not letting life's little problems stop him from continuing to enjoy this new found life.

Bosco is such a gentle soul who just wants only to be close to his human. He's happy to snooze on the couch if you're nearby, especially if he can get scratches behind his ears or on his belly. He especially likes to snuggle up with his foster mom at bedtime. He also loves going for walks and meeting other dogs, and playing with his squeaky stuffed elephant toy. What's not to love about him! If you feel you have the perfect home and heart for Bosco, please email foster mom at uyr.atx@gmail.com and fill out an application at www.uyr.us. Donations for Bosco can also be made on our website at www.uyr.us. Thank you!!

INITIAL BIO: 06/25/20. Meet Bosco! Hes a 10 year old 13-lb boy being fostered in Austin. Hes been through a lot but hes super sweet and super friendly. Boscoe was left alone for days at a time after his owner passed away. He was left with a big bowl of food each time, so when he was first rescued he was so overweight he could barely move. He was rescued 2 months ago, and hes doing much better! You can see from his photos hes much slimmer and he gets around great.

Bosco has cataracts, but the vet says hes a good candidate for surgery. He cant see much but that doesnt slow him down! He enjoys going for walks and just needs a little bit of help to avoid curbs. Hes happy to snuggle up next to you, especially if you give him some skritches. He also loves to make a blanket nest and curl up there. Hes going to the vet this week to get some help with his allergies, so check back soon for an update.


To date we've spent $1661.83 on Bosco's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1837.00 in donations.

UPDATE BIO. 09/16/20. Sweet Bridget came into rescue as a mere 3lb, 3yr old near death due to liver shunt. Her prior owners chose to treat her holistically, feeding her fruits and vegetables prior to surrender. She was seen, got tested and was given an 88% chance of survival 2 yrs ago: However, they chose another route until she could barely stand and started with seizures. Luckily for this angel, they turned to rescue.

She came into rescue not being able to walk, her body was so full of toxins and she was truly skin on bones. After pulling out of the surrender's driveway, she was immediately pumped with life saving meds from another shunt baby we already had on hand. Medicine to bind her toxins, medicine to control her seizures and an antibiotic to kill the toxic bacteria that was invading her body, then she was rushed immediately to the ER. We spent the last month getting this baby stable enough to undergo surgery. Her ALB was a dangerous 1.4 and she could not stand and stumbled horribly due her toxicity. With meds on board, hand feeding special low protein diet food began to add much needed nutrients, which were fed to protect her liver while giving her those nutrients as well as strength as well.

On Monday, Bridget went into her life saving liver shunt surgery. Her shunt was incredibly large and she needed the largest ameroid ring (6) to constrict the toxic flow, which is quite large for a mere 3lb body. She has been in constant monitoring for seizures now and until Wednesday. Her life saving surgery and critical care will be around $3500 and we so appreciate any and all donations you may be able to contribute towards her life saving surgical care. We appreciate every one of you, as you all have been so caring when it comes to our babies, and as you know our hearts are all about giving them the life they were born to have!! Please go to www.uyr.us and scroll to our donate button. God bless you and thank you!

INITIAL BIO 7/29/20: If there is ever belief in divine intervention, this little 3lb muffin is a total testament to just that. Diagnosed at age 1 with a significant liver shunt, the owner of Bridget was expecting a child and made a choice to treat this baby holistically. Let me please make a statement here. Although some feel they are doing the right thing while trying to save a life, and I have to respect any act of love, know that nothing is going to fix an open flow of toxic blood except surgery and intervention with proper medications.

This precious sad little baby girl was miraculously sent to us just at the most perfect time. Within 5 minutes of having this baby in the car she was given life altering medications to help her neuro seizures, and to bind toxins flowing through her body, all while being driven to the ER to be certain this emaciated, skin and bones baby girl was out of danger. Luckily, one of the top surgeons we use for these sick shunt babies was there and gave us good news regarding a surgery approval. Bridget is a fighter.

For 2 years her frail body has survived being fed fruits and vegetables and given enzymes, but today her healing begins! This morning she's having a few more blood tests completed to get current bile acids etc. We will get her physically stable the next few weeks with good liver diet food, pedialyte to aid in her crazy electrolytes and meds, then finally give her this life saving surgery to cut off the heavy flow of the toxins. Bridget need your prayers for her continued strength. Donations can be made for United Yorkie Rescue Bridget at www.uyr.us. Bless you all!!

UPDATE BIO: 09/13/20.

As you can see, sweet Crystal has been with me for almost 2 years! Having come from the puppy mill that we shut down in the Valley View Area of Texas in early 2019, this little lady has had her share of issues. This is pretty typical of mill babies since their care is non-existent, but also their lifestyle, lack of love and attention, and living conditions also traumatize these angels.

Medically, as you see, we have spent over $12K on this baby girl. Crystal had life saving pyometra surgery within 30 minutes after we left the hell hole. Unbeknown to us, she had a deadly skin infection that invaded her surgical site and she was taken into critical care due to her MRSP. She required addl surgery to clean the surgical site and remove the infection that was trapped inside. Within the next few months she was back in surgery to have both sides of her mammary chains removed due to carcinoma found in one of her MANY mammary tumors. Of course we had a mouthful of infection, infected ears, and eyes that were oozing of green pus due to her living conditions and untreated dry eyes to care for as well. Currently, Crystal only takes thyroid medication and an antacid for her reflux.

Emotionally, Crystal has jumped through hoops to get where she is today. This baby still cowers when you go to touch and she tries to run. If you verbally correct any other dog, she is the first to run for cover and hide. Now she LOVES to be placed by you and get belly rubs and get her hair brushed, and she loves to sleep on the bed. She loves treats and she loves her food. She loves to sit outside and roll in the grass. If you want to see the true love of this puppy mill baby, it's when I bring in another tiny rescue! This is like her having her first Christmas, as she absolutely loves the babies!!

Today, Crystal is doing well. Once again we were in surgery to remove her spleen due to a large mass that had grown inside. We had just finished another round of special antibiotics as she was positive for the MRSP again on her skin. She looks absolutely beautiful again!

Will Crystal ever find her furever home?? I don't know. Life with Crystal would be one where you can have a baby by you and cuddle with you on the couch or in bed. She doesn't have many wants at all. She never asks for anything and is a very quiet little girl. She does NOT like storms. She loves to sit in the sun and roll and rub her back in the grass. She LOVES her baths. She loves to be brushed. She is not a tiny girl so you do not have to worry about her with other dogs. She does not jump on furniture and she will stay where she is put. She loves all animals and is fine around children. For the most part Crystal is housebroken but her housetraining is still ongoing. She is a beautiful gentle soul and for all intensive purposes, she is happy and healthy. If you feel you may have the perfect home for this angel or if you would like additional information regarding Crystal, please email foster mom at yorkiefostertx@gmail.com.

UPDATE BIO. 05/19/20. Once again, meet United Yorkie Rescue Crystal. Crystal is a 9 to 10 yr old, 16lb owner surrender. Her prior adoptive family loved this baby so much. Sadly, the family, both daddy and momma, are dealing with major critical health issues and Covid's shutdown of resources. Sadly, affording new tests for this little girl with ongoing skin and eye issues have left this little girl is dire need of medical assistance due to her own ongoing issues. The decision was made to surrender this baby so that care could continue. A year and 3 months ago Crystal was rescued from a horrible puppy mill with the Fortunate Four as we lovingly called them. She came into rescue then with life threatening pyometra requiring immediate emergency surgery, a horrible skin infection referred to as a MRSP (a bacterial resistant skin infection) and with mammary cancer in which we removed her entire chains. Bunny, who is in my care as a Forever Ours with metastatic cancer, was also from that same hell mill that we successfully had shut down a few months later. These girls not only still suffer with ongoing medical issues, but also share a lot of emotional scars that come from living their life in the mill.

Crystal was immediately seen by my awesome vet at Refinery Road and a medical plan was put into place to once again to address her ongoing skin issues. Tests have been sent to A&M for answers. Skin scraping biopsy, cytocentesis to look for possible cortisol in the urine, a first look for possible Cushing's and a complete blood panel to look for diabetes and or possible thyroid issues with a TSH test. Crystal had previously had great medical attention with visits to oncology and internal medicine prior to her adoption. Hopefully we will get answers since her life was in a healthier environment outside of a crate life and filled with love. Breeding definitely takes it toll on these precious babies!

Please continue to support our babies at UYR. I know times are truly hard for us all with this horrible pandemic, but we cannot stop doing what these babies need...rescue needs to go on. Donations can be made at www.uyr.us. We thank you and bless you all

4/5/19: Crystal broke out in horrific hives and is being treated with another medication and a microbial mousse for her skin since her MRSP infection medication just ended. The oncologist who did her emergency surgery with her MRSP infection thinks she's doing great as does her regular vet. After a week of antibiotic to clear up her hives, she can have her dental and be finally be ready for adoption. Crystal is still very shy with humans until you get her next to you. Then she's just so loving and loves the belly rubs. She absolutely ADORES any and all of the dogs... she was sadly, most definitely an amazing mommy for the mill. She will be a wonderful addition to the right family.

3/27/19 Update: We have reached an amazing milestone...sweet puppy mill Crystal is finally healed and looking for her furever home. Crystal is an estimated 9yr old, 14lb sweet girl. We go for our final vet appointment this week. This angel has had quite a journey after her rescue. She survived life threatening pyometra, mammary cancer and a MRSP infection. These were all on top of her eye infections, skin, ears, and broken teeth. This baby girl, I also feel, has been physically abused. There are times I will reach to pet her or call her and she will cower which just breaks my heart. This is very typical of a mill baby without human interaction, but they learn that love is just amazing. Crystal is starting to crave love and absolutely loves to snuggle in the bed and get her belly rubs. She loves all the fosters and she gets sooo excited when a new one comes in. She immediately wants to go be mommy to them and play. She is such a funny girl too as when she goes to play with the others, she gets tickled on her own and jumps all around which is the cutest thing to see. Crystal deserves a home that will be patient and loving with her. Being a mill baby, she may need to re-settle into your home, but once settled she's such a blessing to have. The perfect home for Crystal would be one that is patient and allows her just to blossom. She loves walks, being outside, riding in the car and just being with her human and buddies. Crystal would love to have another pup to be her friend. She gets along fine with cats in the home as well. If you feel you can give this baby her Cinderella happy-ever-after, please fill out an application or contact foster mom at yorkieforstertx@gmail.com.

2/28/19 Update: Wanted to give everyone an update on sweet Crystal of the Fortunate Four Mill rescue. Crystal went in to have both mammary chains removed on the 15th. Carcinoma was discovered in 2 of her previously excised mammary tumors from prior emergency surgery for her pyometra, so the best cure was this type of removal, as there were many more tumors in both chains. Crystal is home now as of the 20th and doing well. Slowly this angel is coming into herself. The happy moments are just incredible to see as I have watched her attempt to play with one of her fur siblings, try Every bed in the house and rolling on her back and talk as if to say, "this feels soooo good"!! Once again we need your help! This was a costly medical expense, but rescue comes with a price and not with cute bows. Crystal is just an adorable love bug as are her other fur siblings, please help us so we can continue our processes by using the donate button below.

2/9/19 Update: The horror unfolds! Here we have a current picture of Crystal who is one of the Fortunate Four that was recently rescued from the puppy mill last week. Crystal had emergency spay surgery immediately upon rescue due to her pus-filled uterus. The vet also took only 2 0f many concerning mammary tumors off one of her tits to be biopsied while she was under anesthesia. She has multiple tumors in both chains. This new picture shows a sweet angel baby after her first medicated bath on Friday. Sadly, what lies inside sweet Crystal is heartbreaking news that we are working with at the present. These results came back in as tumor #1 being carcinoma and tumor #2 as a complex carcinoma. She was immediately called in for a chest x-ray to see if we have metastasized within the chest cavity and lungs...thankfully, those came back clear. Crystal has bacterial skin infection, bilateral ear infections, loss of tear production in her eyes due to untreated eye infections, a mouth full of horrible decay and now mammary cancer. We have saved her life by performing her pyometra surgery, so now it's time to continue our fight to save her. Crystal will undergo surgery this upcoming week. This will be major invasive surgery to remove both mammary chains to make certain we don't miss margins with this cancer. Possibly her dental can be done at that time as well, we will see. Please continue to support us with these horrifically abused angels.

2/5/19: Meet Crystal, one of 3 breeding females recently rescued from puppy mill. She was in distress and taken immediately for care. She was diagnosed with pyometria, a life-threatening condition which is basically an abscessed uterus. This is caused by over-breeding and lack of medical care. She literally had pus draining from her vagina. Crystal has flea and tick infestation, extremely long nails, hair loss, bacterial skin infection, mammary tumors on both sides, engorged teats indicative of recent nursing. Her teeth are literally falling out.

Crystal was taken to surgery for immediate hysterectomy for pyometria. Two mammary tumors looked suspicious and were sent for pathology before proceeding with the remaining tumors. She is recovering well.

Crystal is only one of the Fortunate Four. Please consider helping with her care by using the donate button below and sharing her story.

Jess
Texas
Jess

Meet Jess, a sweet 11 year old, 6 pound little Yorkie boy being fostered in Plano, TX. Due to Covid issues, only TX applicants will be considered.

Initial Bio 9/4/20: Hello everyone!

No, it is not tongue out Tuesday! It's me Jess! I came into foster care a week ago after my owner passed away. I was lucky to be picked up by people with United Yorkie Rescue because the shelter was really scary for me. I am a healthy senior BOY at 11 years old and only weigh 6 pounds. Don't let my size fool you though, I am a very sweet, and cuddly pup. Actually I am a couch potato, but not a regular potato, more like a cute and adorable little red potato that loves to sit on your lap. If you scratch behind my ear I purr like a cat because I don't want you to stop, just ask my foster mom and she can tell you all about it. As long as you have a couch and you like sitting on it, we can get along just fine. I will let you know when I need your attention or when I need something. I would prefer to sleep in your bed and I hope you don't mind since I don't take a lot of room. I don't think I would enjoy going out for walks but I'll go with you if you take me in a stroller. My foster family adores me and they think my tongue sticking out is the cutest thing. My foster mom loves it that, I come to her when she says "come here". She says none of my foster siblings do that unless she has a treat in her hand of course.

I have no teeth so I will require soft food, but you can easily find that at the pet store. I usually go out in the morning to do my business outside if you take me out. I would rather have a mom or dad that stays home so I can be with you all the time and if you take me out for rides or any place where they welcome little guys like me. A home with older adults preferably a stay at home mom or dad or both would be better for me versus a home with energetic children. I am not a kisser but will show you love once in a while with a kiss. I don't like being picked up that much but once in a while I will let you know I want to be picked up or I want you to help me get on the chair or couch next to you. If you have puppy stairs I am able help myself to the couch.

I love it when people come in to visit and love on me. I get along with other dogs big or small as long as they are friendly. I have a big sister dog here at my foster home. Her name is Bella and we get along just fine. I am not sure about cats but my foster mom says I am so friendly she doubts very much that I don't like kitties.

If you are interested in a friend forever, someone who can just sit with you and not demand much from you or your family, please fill out an application for adoption. My foster mom says it will take a very special family to take me away from them. I will love you forever, if you promise to love me back and make me a part of your family and not put me in crates while you are gone or leave me in scary places. Are you looking for love? I am your guy!

Max

Meet the Marvelous Max! An estimated 8 year old, 9 pound bundle of LOVE, being fostered in the Pflugerville (Austin), TX area!

Please note: Due to COVID, no applications outside of the state of Texas will be considered.

THANK YOU TO MAX'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Robin Nyberg, Jana Hammock, Gail Wiggins, Linda Witt, Mark Finkel, Margaret Rossi, Alicia Gomez, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Diane Zammit, James Kirchoff

Initial Bio, 8/11/2020: Hi, I'm Max! I was just rescued from a shelter in California where I wasfound on the streets as a stray, but I am getting a brand new start in Texas now! My previous life was a little rough, but so many Pawsome folks at United Yorkie Rescue are giving me a new 'leash' on life (ha,ha)!

When I got to Texas, it was all very new and took some getting used to, but I made friends with the other dogs at my foster home and I'm REALLY starting to get comfortable. I love to run around in the yard and investigate all the new smells and am getting used to playing, and it all seems pretty great! Outside is where the bathroom breaks are, but I already knew that because I am making my foster parents proud by not having a single accident and letting them know when I need to go outside!

Stay tuned here for more pup-dates on how I'm doing. My foster parents want to share some medical details now. I don't know what that means, but they wrap my pills in food, so I'm okay with that!

Notes from Max's foster parents: Max has several medical issues that are currently being addressed. None are all that major, but they will take some time to recover from. Most of his teeth are missing, and the ones he still has might need to be removed. He has some pretty severe dry eye that is being treated and shouldn't be an issue long term. We are currently watching his thyroid and liver levels to see if they return to normal with care and proper diet and we will update with more information as he continues to heal.

Max's only major issue is a result of long term neglect of ongoing ear infections. His right ear is very infected and swollen closed. We are working to flush and care for his ear in hopes that it will not require surgery. Despite all of these issues, Max is as loving and care-free as any other Yorkie. He gets along with other dogs, but given his neglect and previous care, he can be a little skeptical of new people. This goes away quickly after a few loving head pats and under ear rubs. He is the sweetest little guy considering all that he has been through, and we see more of his amazing personality shine through every day!

Get your application in now to be considered for this amazing little guy! Use the link below to apply or contact his foster parents using the email here or below: uyr.yorkies4life@gmail.com

Meet Teddy, a sweet 10 year old, 6 pound little Yorkie boy being fostered in Belton, TX. NO OUT OF STATE APPLICATIONS WILL BE CONSIDERED.

THANK YOU TO TEDDY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

UPDATE 3/7/20: Calling all caring and compassionate souls that are eager to make a difference in a very special and needy puppy's life. I have been neglected far too long due to my prior owners ongoing health problems and am in need of a special someone that has a huge heart and wants to be a savior to a very special little boy. Sorry for the wait on my update, but I have been one busy little puppy. So my first vet visit was a doozie! Remember how foster mom and dad said I had some tooth decay; well they weren't wrong. I lost every single tooth when I had my first dental since maybe forever. But I am surprisingly not fazed. I can even keep my tongue in my mouth...well most of the time! I still really love the soft food I am getting, but I occasionally raid the kibble bowl when it's available. It's great that my appetite is good, as I still need to put on some weight to be my best healthy self. I also had to go under the knife twice, once to remove a large growth that thankfully was not cancer, and again for exploratory surgery to find my remaining testicle so I could be neutered. But success, the dogtor found and removed it. I have now healed and settled down and am beginning to behave like a perfect gentleman. I absolutely love to be next to my human. Whether it is on foster moms' lap while she does her hair and makeup, or snuggled up next to mom or pop on the couch during resting time. And I love to sleep under the covers in bed with my people. I sleep through the night without making a peep or bothering the other two pups in bed. I get along with my foster siblings and love on any visitors that stop by. I will go outside to do my business, but still need a little help on my inside manners when no one is home. My ideal home would be with adults that possibly work from home or are retired. I am special and need someone equally as special that want to make all the difference in the world to me. So like Foreigner said "I want to know what love is.....and I want you to show me".

Initial Bio 2/2/20: Hi everyone, I would like to take a moment to introduce myself, my name is Teddy and Im about ten years old. Unfortunately, my loving owner was no longer able to take care of me due to serious ongoing health problems over the past four years. So they surrendered me to the United Yorkie Rescue in hopes of me finding a great new forever home. Foster Mom & Dad picked me up yesterday so we are still getting to know each other. All of this change is a little scary for me and I know it will take time for me to adjust, but as long as I have a soft place to snuggle and relax and lots of soft food Im a pretty happy guy. I had a trip to the emergency vet last night due to some pain caused by my terribly decaying teeth. The vet gave us some medication that is helping me feel better until I can get into see the regular vet first thing on Monday morning. My foster Mom and Dad are worried about me because Im a little underweight, but I love the soft food they are feeding me here as I did not do very well with hard food because of my teeth, but hopefully we will get those fixed soon. I will also need to be neutered once the vet says Im healthy enough. The future is looking bright for me. We will update everyone after my Monday appointment. If you would like more info or would like to meet , contact my foster parents at uyryorkielovetx@yahoo..com.

BIO UPDATE: 09/13/20. Hi everyone!! Sweet Toby continues to amaze me as we struggle with his sad news on his inoperable multiple liver shunts. His last visit with the Internal med department showed some slight changes in his liver values, this we expect. On his month checkup we will decide his adoption status. He will soon have a workup to check his bladder to make certain he has not begun the formation of a bladder stone as he had in the beginning stage of his disease. It is imperative to know that should we place Toby up for adoption, his adopter must be willing to continue medical check ups every 3 months, as well as continue with his daily meds and diet which allows him to live his life with help in filtering his blood flow and cleansing. Due to his tiny size, Toby wil not be considered with children.

Toby also was very much stepped on in his previous home as he will squeal out if he feels, or even thinks, your foot is about to touch him! He does well with other dogs and loves to play with them as well. Meanwhile, Toby is a happy, playful baby that is absolutely glue to his perspective owner. He will cry, and I mean real tears, if he's not velcro when he needs it! He could be such an amazing addition to another one's life if all considerations are met and your love is unconditional. Please feel free to contact foster mom at yorkiefostertx@gmail.com for your questions.

6/9/20 UPDATE: Sweet little Toby was seen with Internal Med today to discuss his nuclear testing that was recently performed. It appears that Toby has a very rare condition. Dr. Miller can only find two other patients with the same condition. Basically he feels Toby was probably born with a congenital shunt. Over the course of his short life, his body has produced multiple micro shunts which resemble looking at worm-like fibers. Sadly, he is not a candidate for surgery and will need lifetime monitoring. As of today, we will need to recheck his liver values closely as the toxins will destroy the liver over time. We will also need to watch for crystalized stones to form as we must move his diet to a low protein diet to protect the liver. We are on medications to aid in binding the toxins and keeping this precious baby protected. We will do this while adding what is necessary, for as long as we can, keeping him healthy as we go forward. As of now, Toby is just a happy little boy and toxins seem to be in check. Please know this testing is quite expensive at this moment, so your love and donations have been and will be so appreciated! Please share. Please keep Toby in your prayers as we go through this process in his precious life. God bless you!

6/2/20 UPDATE: Sadly the excitement of finding an operable shunt has been squashed as this little boy with UNITED YORKIE RESCUE has acquired many shunts. It is possible this started as a birth defect but over time he has acquired an intricate tortuous amount of shunts that are not operable and are critical now to keeping his liver alive. In Toby's case, it has been recommended that he receive a biopsy of his liver. He will meet with Dr. Miller, with Internal Med on Monday, and we will proceed with further testing to make sure he gets full diagnosis. He is currently receiving the proper medications to protect his liver. Please keep prayers coming for this adorable baby and as always, donations can be made using the link below. Donations are so needed for these sick babies. I will update everyone on Monday as to our next step with this precious baby! Meanwhile, he loves to go with foster momma and snuggles are a must!

5/21/20. BIO UPDATE: Precious UNITED YORKIE RESCUE Toby just wanted to snuggle after his long day of nuclear sedated testing. Sweet baby is dripping urine too. We are monitoring that. This maybe due to the surgical removal of a large stone prior and a combo of todays anesthesia.

We know we do have a liver shunt so prayers needed that we are operable!! He will meet with the surgeon Tuesday early am. This process is extremely expensive for our rescue so of course we ask for your help. Please donate at www.uyr.us, share and send prayers for this angel!! Bless you all!

5/22/20 UPDATE: This precious little UNITED YORKIE RESCUE Toby, is back in rescue. Sadly, our little 5lb, 3yr old is ill with a dire medical condition. Toby originally came into rescue as an owner surrender. Upon his arrival it became evident he was having issues urinating. He was immediately taken to the vet and the next day underwent emergency surgery for removal of a huge bladder stone. Toby healed nicely, he was put on a special diet an adopted to a very loving owner. Sadly, upon a recheck for Toby she was given the horrible news that his liver values were off and upon further testing, bile acids were high. We now know this baby most likely has a portal liver shunt. We have taken Toby to the vet to start proper medication which binds the toxins that are not being filtered through his malfunctioning liver, and we will now proceed with confirming this shunt through a nuclear scintigraphy with immediate surgery to follow. This testing and surgery is extremely expensive and can run upwards of $6k to $8k. We need your help please! We have recently rescued quite a few with unique medical needs, but even with the state the world is in, rescue needs to continue. Donations can be made using the link below.

BIO UPDATE! 04/22/20. Precious little Toby did well with his surgery! He stayed overnight and most of this day for pain managment, and now is finally on his way home with foster momma.

We are so blessed with an amazing vet in the Austin area at Blockhouse Creek Vet Clinic for the great care they gave to this little nugget. Now, we wait for results of the composition of this huge stone so Toby can start a diet to protect him from developing any more in the future.

Again, your donations are so very much appreciated at this terrible time in all of our lives. Bless you all. Please take a moment to donate or share and please enjoy a new attached picture!

UPDATE 4-/21/20: Precious 3yr, 5 lb Toby began displaying distress and pain today and is now at the vet's getting prepped for surgery. His little bladder has been blocked by a large stone and he was in immense pain by the time his foster momma arrived at the vet. We know this procedure will be costly (approx $2000) so please donate what you can and share for this angel using the Donate Button below. Bless you all and thank you for loving sweet Toby!!

Mr. McGee

Mr McGee is a 5 year old (estimated) Yorkie boy who weighs 8 pounds and is being fostered near Stafford, VA

Initial Bio 9-2-20: My name is Mr. McGee and Im a happy go lucky little guy. Prior to being pulled from the shelter I was severely matted, got a really nice haircut, and thought a family was going to adopt me but then changed their minds. My foster mom took me to the dogtor and we learned I am between 5-7 years old, I have an eye disease called Pigmentary Keratitis that has caused me to partially go blind and have chronic inflammation if not treated. The dogtor explained that I will require daily eye drops for life to slow down the progression. Right now I can only see shadows and would love to keep the eye sight that I have. I also have Lyme disease that my foster mom is treating me for. The dogtor says I need a dental but should wait 2 months considering I was just neutered and am on 3 medications for Lyme Disease and Pigmentary Keratitis. I love to go outside and explore, I get along with the other small dogs and cats in the house as long as they dont get close to me when I have food or a bone. Im afraid of long stair cases since I cant see very well, Im not fond of small children, I sleep on the floor in my foster moms bedroom, and Im learning to use the pee pads. My foster mom and dogtor say Im under weight but they feed me really good food. Im not a lap dog but everyone thinks Im super cute and loving.

Watson
Wisconsin
Watson

Meet Watson, a precious 15 month old, 8 pound Yorkie boy being fostered in Madison, WI. Due to COVID concerns, only Wisconsin applicants will be considered.

THANK YOOU TO WATSON'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Patricia Anderson

UPDATE BIO: Update 9/4/20 - Watson had his first vet visit this week and is doing well. He does have an issue with still having many baby teeth so those will come out when he goes in for his neuter in a couple of weeks. Watson gets along with dogs closer to his size but not so much with larger dogs. His leash work is getting much better already and potty training is coming along.

INITIAL BIO. 08/29/20. Watson came to foster as a surrender due to owners health. He is a sweet little guy that loves sitting on a lap and having his back rubbed. Watson is fast and bolts when the door opens so he must have a fenced yard or be kept on a leash. He needs some work on potty training and leash walking but overall is a well-mannered little guy that gets along great with his foster brother. Watson has a doctor visit next week to get his annual shots up to date and will need to be scheduled for his neuter.

Adoption Pending

To date we've spent $614.02 on Watson's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $200.00 in donations.
