Chewy
California
Chewy CA

Initial Bio 7/1/2020: Hello everyone, my name is Chewy. I am only 5 years old and only weigh 10lbs. I am a beautiful golden Yorkshire Terrier and my coat is very soft and shiny.

On June 25, my parents surrendered me to a very scary shelter. I dont know why. I am the sweetest and the most adorable little boywho would have thought!! Fortunately for me, I was rescued by a very nice lady called foster mom. I think my name has been changed too because she always calls me your are a such a good boy.

I am a really healthy happy boy. I love going to the park and walking next to my foster mom and I only stop when I see a nice bush. I always listen to her and I always follows her voice. I love to play with tennis balls, and I have learned to catch it and let it go so I can play over and over and over.

I socialize very well with other doggies of my size, but when I see a big dog, I kinda get scared, so scared I bark, but foster mom says its okI love her!

I am working extremely hard in my potty training and I am doing so good. My foster mom is very proud of me because I wait until we go out so I can sniff and use my favorite tree. I think I may have this!!

I am very calm and mellow (my foster mom says that) I love always being by her side and Im always looking at what she is doing. We love watch TV and I love to cuddle by her side. I love my foster dad too.

Oh, I forgot to tell you that I know how to hug, if you pick me up, I can hug you very softly. My foster mom says that I must tell you that I have the sweetest eyes that she has ever seen. You can see me in those pictures that my foster mom took of me.

Foster mom is still getting to know me, and I have some vetting that will need to be done so I wont be ready for adoption until August. But please, if you feel you may have the perfect home for me, keep me in mind. If you have questions, please reach out to foster mom at yorkie4adoption@gmail.com. I will be posting more pictures too because she says I am ridiculously photogenic!! I cant wait to find my furever!!

Oliver
California
Oliver

Bio 7/1/2020: Hello everyone, my name is Oliver! I am beautiful Yorkie who is only 9 years old and I weigh about 8lbs.

On June 17th, my parents just dumped me at the Shelter because I have a little mass on the back of my neck. This I think is nothing serious. The vet says we just cut it off and cut off the little ones by my eyes tooits a little scary for me, but foster mom says we will do it because Im so handsome!!

Fortunately for me, I was rescued by UYR and I have the best foster mom. I am resting and learning so many things. She buys me so many things tooI have beds and toys. I am sooo lucky!

I am little , I weigh only 8lbs, and my foster mom always tells me that I am her Teddy Bear, I think because I am very soft and I always like to be picked up so I can melt in her arms.

I dont like car rides very much; I get very anxious and nervous I pant constantly actually. But I like to go for short walks, and I do very well with the leash. I am also working on my potty habits and Im doing great!

I am very calm, and I love to nap a lot. My favorite thing is to cuddle next to my foster mom and I love that she rubs my belly so I can keep napping.

I do have the worst mouth because my owner didnt take very good care of me, but in August I get to get all the owies out of my mouth and the bumps off my neck and eye. I cant wait! It may take me a little time to be ready but I will be looking for my furever mommy an daddy, If you think Im all that (and I am), please fill out an application and pick me. If you need any information about me, you can also email my foster mom at yorkie4adoption@gmail.com. Ill be waiting!!

I am sweet Bella. I know you will love me.

I bet you can see why I am called beautiful Bella.
Florida
Bella

This Yorkie is beautiful Bella. Bella is just 6 years old and weighs a little-too-chubby 13 pounds. Bella would like to be adopted with her brother Jack. Bella is being fostered in Orlando, FL. 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 BELLA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Lou Bedzak

Updated Bio 7/5/20 With much sadness Bella was returned to United Yorkie Rescue. She was having some trouble adjusting to a home with no fenced yard. She didn't enjoy being walked and was not making friends on her walk.

Bella's foster mom is going to be working on her with on leash manners and making friends with other dogs. At this time we know Bella must have a home with a fenced yard. She also need a stay at home person who will continue to work with her. Bella is house trained, vaccinated, microchipped, and had her dental.

Bella can be adopted alone, but she has been with her brother Jack most of her life and they would like to be adopted together. If you are someone who would like a boy and girl to love and to love you back, you may want to consider adopting them together. You get double the love and double the happiness with two great pups instead of one.

Bella needs an adult only home since she is not used to having kids around.

UPDATED BIO 01/19/2020: Bella here. My brother Jack and I were surrendered to UYR because our owner wasn't able to give us all the time and attention he once gave us. He was very sad to give us up, but he knew it was best for us. He asked that UYR keep us together. That is my wish, too. Jack and I have been together our whole lives, and we must stay together.

Let me tell you a little about myself. I'll be 6 years old on February 1st and I weigh 13 pounds. I'm not as svelte as I should be and the dogtor said she should be able to see a more defined waist on me. A little change in my diet should do the trick. I used to sneak a little of my brother's food. My foster mom says those days are over.

I am up to date on my shots and I am microchipped. I will have a dental cleaning on the 23rd. I am on Trifexis for heartworm and flea/tick prevention. I am very smart and I am house-trained. I love car rides and walks. Like my brother Jack, I don't know how to walk properly on a leash. I'll need some help with that.

If you have room in your heart and home for two great doggies, then Jack and I are sitting here waiting on you.

1/15/2020 Initial Bio. Bella and her brother Jack were sadly surrendered when their owner could no longer care for them. Their former owners life changed and his new circumstances meant Bella and Jack were left alone for hours and hours a day. He knew Bella and Jack needed a better life for themselves. They needed a family who would care for them, love them, and give them the time and attention they needed.

Bella's foster mom said she is a beautiful pup, but she does need to lose a little weight, so she is now on a little diet. Lucky for Bella she has a foster home with a fenced yard and a foster mom who will make sure she and Jack get the exercise they need.

Bella and her brother Jack have been together all their life, and they must be adopted together.

Bella and Jack just arrived at their foster home, more information and pictures will be coming soon. Please come back soon.

Gabby

MEET GABBY. Gabby is a beautiful little senior female yorkie who is 13 years old and weighs 12 lbs. Gabby is being fostered in Dunedin, FL. Due to Covid-19, all Florida foster dogs must be adopted by Florida residents at this time. No exceptions will be made.

INITIAL BIO 07/12/2020: Sweet Senior Gabby arrived today as our newest little foster dog in Florida. Gabby's original owner passed away in May, and a family member stepped up to care for her. They are moving out of state and cannot take Gabby with them, and contacted UYR - of course we said yes!

Gabby will soon see the vet for a well-dog check, but she appears to be a healthy little girlie. Her perfect home would be with with someone that is retired or works from home, as she does not like to be left alone. Stay tuned to learn more about Gabby as her foster mom gets to know her better.

If you're cool with that, here's what you need to know about me. Ill be 6 years old on February 1st. I weigh almost 11 pounds. The dogtor says my weight is perfect for me. I am up to date on my shots and I am microchipped. I am having a dental cleaning on January 23rd. I am on Trifexis for heartworm and flea/tick prevention. I am house trained, too.

I am a very happy boy and I love to play with my toys. My favorite game is fetch. I love car rides and walks. My foster mom says I need some help with proper leash walking. I'm so happy to be outside that I pull my leash too much. Maybe you could help me learn?

If you have room in your heart and home for two great doggies, then Bella and I are sitting here waiting on you.

I am such a pretty and sweet girlie
Florida
Kendra

Kendra is 5-1/2 years old and weighs a little chubby 10.3 lbs. She is being fostered in Jacksonville, FL. Due to Covid-19, all Florida foster dogs must be adopted by Florida residents at this time. No exceptions will be made.

UPDATED BIO 07/01/2020: Kendra was initially part of a huge Georgia puppy mill bust 16 months ago. UYR rescued a total of 20 dogs from inhumane conditions where they had lived in small wire crates their whole lives. She spent several months rehabilitating in a UYR foster home and was adopted into a loving home. Sadly, Kendra never really acclimated to life outside the puppy mill where she spent the first 6 years of her life, and suffered severe neglect, both emotional and physical. Many dogs take longer than others to recuperate from the neglectful conditions of a puppy mill.

Kendra was reluctantly returned to United Yorkie Rescue by her previous adoptive parents so that she can receive additional training and guidance in how to become a loving companion dog. She will be shown patience, love, kindness and caring so that she knows she will never be neglected ever again. She will also learn that she can trust people with her comfort and care. She returned to her previous foster home. Kendra remembered this home and within several days she stared to get more comfortable with the house and people. She has improved with some behaviors, but retains the more prevalent puppy mill behaviors and fears, such as excessive fear of loud noises (eg. storms, vacuums, fireworks) - you get the picture. Kendra also reacts negatively with sudden movements. Her favorite place for now is her crate where she sleeps at night and when loud noises are heard. During the day she will use the doggie beds. She is beginning to come towards her foster and progress is slow. Kendra is house-trained if taken outside frequently. She requires a fenced in yard as she is fearful of the leash.

Kendra saw the doggie doctor a few days ago and he was happy with her progress compared to her initial visit 1 years ago. She came out of her crate and was sitting on his lap while he talked with me on the phone. Upon exam, the vet believes Kendra is younger than we originally thought. He believes she is probably closer to 5-1/2 years old! That could be related to her condition at the time of the initial exam. She weighs 10.3 lbs. which is a bit too much and may be contributing to the luxating patellas. Her vaccinations were updated and she also had labs done, and they were perfect. She is being started on medication to help with her anxiety issues. She will need a few weeks of medication management to find the best dosage.

Kendra needs a special person that has a fairly quiet household and patience as her forever parent(s). She will buddy with another small dog but she is not into playing or toys. She is also fine with cats. PLEASE NOTE: Kendra cannot be adopted into a home with children! She will allow a person to pick her up on her terms and will lie calmly near them. She is not a dog that will snuggle since she never had that in her previous puppy mill life, but that could change. Kendra resent the leash and only time will tell if she will get over that behavior, so that is why a fenced-in yard is a must for her. Kendra is a sweetie, but needs a very special person that understands behaviors of former puppy mill dogs. Kendra needs several weeks of medications before she will be ready to be adopted. Are you that special person? If you are, Kendra would like to hear from you. If not, please visit the Looking for Love page on our web site for other available dogs.

INITIAL BIO 06/22/2020: Kendra was initially part of a huge Georgia puppy mill bust 15 months ago. UYR rescued a total of 20 dogs from inhumane condititons where they had lived in small wire crates their whole lives. She spent several months rehabilitating in a UYR foster home and was adopted into a loving home. Sadly, Kendra never really acclimated to life outside the puppy mill where she spent the first 6 years of her life, and suffered severe neglect, both emotional and physical. Many dogs take longer than others to realize that they no longer have to go hungry for days on end, or sleep on the unclean floor on a wire crate where the excrement and urine of the dogs stacked above them will fall on them.

Kendra has been reluctantly returned to United Yorkie Rescue by her adoptive parents so that she can receive additional training and guidance in how to be a loving companion dog. She will be shown patience, love, kindness and caring so that she knows she will never be neglected ever again. She will also learn that she can trust people with her comfort and care. Kendra has a warm comfy bed and regular meals, and will know nothing but love in her foster home.

Kendra's perfect home would have a fenced-in yard, and perhaps a stay-at-home parent. She may like another doggie companion to follow around, but during her time outside the puppy mill, she has not played with toys or with another dog. However, she does like to follow another dog around.

Kendra needs to settle in for a few weeks at her foster home, and be seen by the vet for a well-dog check. Please stay tuned for updates on this sweet girlie.


To date we've spent $782.83 on Kendra's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $300.00 in donations.

I am very cute

I think I need a haircut
Florida
Moe

MEET MOE. Moe is an adorable little male maltese who is 5 years old and weighs 9.8 lbs. Moe is being fostered in Lighthouse Point, FL. Due to Covid-19, all Florida foster dogs must be adopted by Florida residents at this time. No exceptions will be made.

INITIAL BIO 07/07/2020: Moe just arrived in UYR. This poor little fella has not had a fun time recently. He was surrendered to an animal shelter for euthanasia by the owners that have had him since he was a puppy. Moe nipped at a 3 year old child in the home, and the parents decided that the penalty for that was to have him put to sleep, even though the shelter offered assistance with behavior modification training. The owner said that she did not have the time for that. As often happens, small dogs may not be a good fit with young children, as little children move quickly, may make loud noises, and think that the small dog is a toy.

The shelter notified UYR and of course, we agreed to bring Moe into our Foster Care Program. While at the shelter, he was very sweet, and was excited to be taken on walks. He is mostly house-trained, but his foster parents will be working with him on being consistent in going outside to do his business. Moe appeared to be a bit shy and stand-offish at the shelter, but he was likely confused and overwhelmed in that environment. He appears to be along with other dogs.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to his history with children, Moe can only be adopted into a home with children 14 years old or older.


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

I am a cute little guy.
Florida
Stitch

Stitch is a 6-year-old sweet Yorkie boy. He is a little too skinny 6 pounds. He is being fostered in Miami Beach, FL. Due to Covid-19 UYR dogs will need to be adopted in the state in which they are being fostered.

UPDATED BIO 07/10/2020: Stitch was turned into the shelter to be euthanized. They owners said that they could no longer care for him. According to the owners, he walked in circles, ate his own feces and even took it to bed with him, and he only liked certain people. It was apparent that Stitch had not been trained or well-cared for in his 4 years with them.

Fast Forward a week later ---- Stitch is doing very well in his foster home. He loves to eat and manages quite well even though he lost 9 teeth that were badly decayed. Foster Mom says that he is a bundle of pure love. Stitch is very calm and sweet oh, and he loves to give puppy kisses! This little munchkin loves to lounge around and be petted by his human and absolutely adores being cuddled. A Love Muffin! He also enjoys going on long leash walks; house training is a work in progress but with consistency and repetition, hopefully he will soon get it. Stitch may bark if there is a knock at the door or if a stranger walks into the home, but he calms right now. It is possible that Stitch may have had previous skin allergies since he is missing hair on his ears, but he is not currently itchy and is in great shape.

Foster Mom says that Stitch has let her know that he wants to be the only dog in the home. He has shown some aggression towards other dogs, but seems indifferent towards kitty cats. He also needs at least one stay-at-home parent who is patient and willing to walk him 3 times a day to reinforce his house-training.

PLEASE NOTE:

- Stitch can only be adopted into a home with adults and teens at least 14+ years old.

- Stitch needs a stay-at-home parent as he is very people-oriented and loves his human.

Initial Bio 7/2/20: Stitch was turned into the shelter to be euthanized. The owners said they could no longer care for him. He walked in circles, he ate his own feces and even took it to bed with him, and he only liked certain people. It was apparent that Stitch had not been trained or well-cared for in his 4 years with them.

The shelter saw a much different dog and they were not going to euthanize an otherwise healthy, fairly young dog, who most likely only needed medical care and proper training. The staff treated him for the fleas, did a dental, he lost 9 teeth, and gave him antibiotics to help heal his hurting mouth. Stitch is only 5.6 pounds, and probably will need to put on some weight. His foster mom said she could feel all his bones. It is very possible his hurting mouth prevented him from eating much. Stitch will be put on a high quality, nutritious dog food in order to reach a healthier weight. The shelter staff said he never circled and didnt eat anything more than the food he was given. He was a friendly, happy dog to everyone on the staff. He was taken out on a leash and was super sweet. He met another dog, and he had no reaction at all. In fact, he seemed more interested in the people, than in the dogs.

On his freedom ride to his foster home he was giving his rescue angel kisses and was very well behaved. Given the medical care, the good food, and the training and love he so desperately needs, Stitch will be an amazing, wonderful pet and companion for the right family. There will be more to come about Stitch as he learns how good life can be. His foster mom thinks it is most likely that Stitch may need an all adult family with no children. That may change as she gets to know him better, and there is so much yet to know about this little guy.


To date we've spent $0.00 on Stitch's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Sweetie

Sweetie is a sweet little female Terrier Mix who is 3 - 4 years old and weighs 10 lbs. Sweetie is being fostered in Tallahassee, FL. Due to Covid-19, all Florida foster dogs must be adopted by Florida residents at this time. No exceptions will be made./center>

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 07/11/2020: 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 attention! She is so very loving and adores attention from her humans. She is a smart little cookie and is already house-trained to pee-pee pads. She is learning that if she does her business outside, she will get a treat, so we are working on that. 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 is very obedient and has such a gentle little nature and 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. Sweetie gets along with the resident dogs in the home although her humans are the most important companions for her. She would do well in a home with children 12+ years and would enjoy another dog close to her age and size as a companion. Its a treat to see that only the mention of her name makes her tail wag so fast its a blur!

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 her first Immiticide injection on 08/03, followed by the second & third injections on 09/03. Immiticide is an arsenic-containing compound so Sweetie must be kept very quiet with restricted exercise during her treatment. She will have a heartworm test 30 days after her last injections and if negative, she will be ready for adoption the middle of October.

Please dont forget about Sweetie. Sweeties 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.

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.

Lucky
Illinois
Lucky

Meet Lucky. Lucky is an estimated 9-10-year-old, schnauzer mix, little male who weighs 6 lbs and is being fostered near Beach Park, IL.

Due to COVID-19 at this time ALL ADOPTIONS must be in the state the dog is being fostered

UPDATE BIO: 07/05/20. Lucky saw the vet today and received a few vaccinations. He is a very sick little boy, and the vet said he was in a great deal of pain with a mouthful of infected teeth, so he will be on an antibiotic for the next two weeks. He has a heart murmur but it doesnt seem to be causing any problems at the present time. Once we have the infection cleared up in his mouth, we will get his dental done and the vet said he will more than likely lose all of his teeth.

On the bright side, Lucky will not have to worry about bad or infected teeth any longer, and we have had many dogs in the rescue without any teeth who live great lives. I gave him soft food which he has been eating very well and his first dose of antibiotic. He is sleeping peacefully and hopefully will start feeling better soon! Lucky is a very sweet little boy and he will be a great companion! I will update his bio as he makes progress.

INITIAL BIO: 07/02/20. Lucky is a little 6 lb. male Yorkie who just came into our rescue today. He is presently with his foster family in Beach Park, IL, close to the Wisconsin border. We are not sure of his age but we are thinking possibly 9 to 10 years old. He is a sweet boy in dire need of a dental, neuter and all vaccinations. He will be seeing the vet on Saturday to get some of his vaccinations and everything else scheduled.

If you think he might be a good fit for your family, please watch for updates on his progress. Any questions can be directed to his foster mommy at yorkiefostermom04@gmail.com. He is going to make someone a great little companion!


To date we've spent $256.18 on Lucky's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $25.00 in donations.

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

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!

Bexley
Texas
Bexley (aka Tanner)

Meet adorable Bexley (aka Tanner), a one ear old 9 pound cutie being fostered in Texas. Only Texas adopters will be considered.

Initial Bio 6-26-29: Look at this gorgeous boy! Our new foster

Bexley is a 22 month old 12lb (very adorable) boy who in his short life found himself in the the shelter not once, but twice!!

His family was moving and chose to leave Bexley behind. They sent him packing to the shelter where he was adopted quickly, but again failed by his family and returned to the shelter. He is a very playful boy who loves toys, fingers and toes!! He was unfortunately adopted to a family with small children and his playful nature proved a bit much for the little ones.

Bexley is a puppy, he has puppy energy and plays like you would expect a puppy to play. He barks when he hears a new noise, all puppies do. Once he realizes all is fine, hes fine. After only a few days most household noises were no longer acknowledged.

Bexley is great with other dogs and every person he has met, including kids. We would recommend a home without small children, however there is no problem if you have visiting children (grands etc.) Bexley is trainable and could also learn to be playful with children if you have the patience to teach him. Bexley likes to be with his people. He would be a perfect companion pup! He loves to be outside too!

Now, the always important bathroom habits. Bexley is a squatter and shows no tendency to mark. He wears his little belly band without a problem while hes learning outside only. Bexley has a sweet nature and is a very good boy. He has learned both sit and stay very quickly. He is looking for the perfect forever family that will never give him up again.

If you are interested in learning more about Bexley you can email his foster mom at Olgauyrtx@gmail.com


To date we've spent $0 on Bexley (aka Tanner)'s vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Meet Bosco. Bosco is 10-years-old and weighs 13 lbs. He is being fostered in Austin, TX.

THANK YOU TO BOSCO'S RESCUE ANGELS

THANK YOU TO BOSCO'S FACEBOOK DONORS

Karry Rogers, Yoly Velez-Tarr, Leslie Corbell, Alexa Socha Rowan, Samantha Oates

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.

Chewie Bud

Meet Chewie Bud. Chewie is a 5-year-old, 6 pound Yorkie. He is being fostered near Azle, TX.

Due to COVID-19 at this time ALL ADOPTIONS must be in the state the dog is being fostered

INITIAL BIO: 07/08/20. Meet Chewie Bud. He goes by Chewie or Buddy, sometimes. He is a really sweet parti Yorkie. He just turned 5 years old on June 20th and weighs about 6 pounds. Sadly, his owner had him since he was a pup, but after two children and living in an apartment, they decided they could not give him the life he deserves and entrusted this baby to UYR.

When foster mom picked him up, the owner was crying but knew that UYR would find the best home for this precious boy. Chewie is up to date on shots and foster mom just needs to take him in for blood work to make sure he is as good on the inside as he is on the outside. The surrendering owner also had problems with potty training him but knew that was because they knew they were not being consistent. He has had a few accidents at foster moms but generally will do his business outside.

Now the family this precious, loving boy needs, is a family without small children. A family who will be patient with him as they help him to master the potty outside. This guy needs someone who will love on him and tell him how special he is. Keep in mind this young boy is 5 years old, so he could live another 10 years or longer so make sure you have at least 10 years to give this baby. He is very special.

If you think you are that special someone, please go to www.unitedyorkierescue.org and click on the adoption application and fill it out. His adoption fee is $700.


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

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.


To date we've spent $11533.54 on Crystal's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $4995.55 in donations.

Ginger
Texas
Ginger formerly Charly

Meet Ginger, who is a 3-year-old, 7 pound Yorkie. She is being fostered in Leander, TX.

Due to COVID-19 at this time ALL ADOPTIONS must be in the state the dog is being fostered

Initial Bio 07/09/20. Meet Ginger, one of team Texas' newest rescues. Ginger comes to us a surrender from a caring soul who found her roaming the streets. Estimated to be around 3 years old and weighing in at slim 7.5 lbs., Ginger was not suited to live on her own. She was taken in to UYR with open loving arms.

As you can imagine for a little girl on her own in the wild, she is a little underweight, was infested with fleas, and suffered a terrible skin infection with hair loss due to the fleas. She has seen the Dogtor once, but her blood work came back a little irregular and will be rechecked on 7/10/20. Amazingly this was the only ailment for Ginger. No worms, parasites, or heartworm! Her teeth are clean, but will need a spay.

INTIAL BIO: 06/29/20. Kappie is a precious little three pound, 6 year old girl who came into rescue facing a very costly surgery for a liver shunt. Kappie was found on the streets by a good Samaritan who took her to a vet to check for a chip. None was found. The vet tech reached out to her family for help with this little girl and they graciously took her temporarily in an effort to help her. Kappie had no hair and was flea infested, and emaciated. In the short two months she was in a loving temporary home, she was treated for two urinary tract infections, she was spayed and during the spay the vet discovered she had multiple bladder stones.

The vet also believes she has a liver shunt and we are waiting for blood work results to come back to confirm this finding. Kappie is very loving and she loves to play and has a lot of life left to live! Liver shunt surgery and the hospital after care costs in the thousands of dollars. We need your support and donations to help UYR extend the life of Kappie.

Once she is healthy, she will be available for adoption but will need a family that can be diligent in having blood work to monitor her liver function. Since Kappie is a little three pound girl, she needs a home without children. She loves people and needs a home with a family that will take her with them or be home with her so she is not alone all day.

If you think your family is perfect or if you would like to contribute to the care of this precious girl, please go to our website at www.unitedyorkierescue.org and you can donate there and/or fill out an application. Thank you for your support!!!


To date we've spent $1354.00 on Kappie (Cappy)'s vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1145.00 in donations.

Initial bio 7/2/2020: Hi EveryoneMy name is Owen! I am a beautiful little yorkie. I am only 8yrs old and 7lbs. I have had such sadness in my life because my fur-sibling has been dying and losing him was the worst. Then my parents are having to return to Paris, so I have lost them too. Luckily, they reached out to these amazing people at United Yorkie Rescue to help me through my loss.

I have the most amazing foster mommy who says she will be certain that I have the best family and maybe even another brother or sister again! Im very healthy. I need a few shots and may need a dental but other than that I have been very loved. My foster mom says I am so very well behaved too, she is right!! I love people and dogs, and I walk beautifully on a leash. I get to sleep on the bed with another buddy of mine and we keep foster mommy warm! I also love to sit on the couch and curl up in your lap at nighttime. I love the belly rubs so much, my tongue just sticks out.

I know my foster mom will take care of me, but if you think you could be my furever mommy, please fill out an application on our website. Foster mommy will be glad to talk to you if you have questions too. You can email her at uyrtxrom@gmail.com. I cant wait to meet you!

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

INITIAL BIO: 07/10/20 Hi everyone!! Meet Prissy, the most adorable baby girl in the entire world. She is 5 years old and weighs 3.8 lbs. Her new family will want to carry her everywhere because she is so lovable and is quite a littke snuggler. She would be perfect for someone who is home most of the day and has time to have a sweet lap dog follow them around. She would also be a good fit with another playmate as well She adores everyone and all pets too!

Although she has been around young children, due to her tiny size young children would not be the best home for her. Prissy had not had much care at all. This little nugget was kept in a garage most of her life or left to roam the streets at night until a wonderful lady rescued her into her home and contacted us. Prissy is in the process of her vetting and dental so watch for an upcoming update. Please complete an application for this sweet baby at www.uyr.us or contact foster mom at uyrtxvets@gmail.com.

Roxy
Texas
Roxy TX

Meet sweet Roxy, a tiny 6 pound, 9 year old little girl who came to her Texas foster mom from California. She is being fostered in Georgetown, TX and must be adopted within the state of Texas. Her adoption fee is $500. ROXY HAS AN ADOPTION PENDING.

THANK YOU TO ROXY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Jillian Galindo, Susan Rigby, Lauren Radencic

INITIAL BIO: 05/31/20. Meet Ms Roxy who is a 7lb lovable 9 year old bundle of love. This sweet girl came to UYR 3 weeks ago from her home of 9 years. Her previous owner was moving and wasnt able to take her to her new home. She only had a few health issues but nothing that will keep her from loving all the human attention she can get. Roxy had some dental surgery and now she has beautiful pearly whites. A nutritious diet and some skin care are letting her coat come in so beautiful. She had some skin issues on her ears, which caused hair loss, but with treatment her hair is growing slowly back in. Her hair looks to be a coco brown, which could give her a tri color coat.

If you are good with an adorable little Yorkie following you around and driving you crazy to go for walks and car rides then she will be perfect for her new family. Her potty training is 50/50. She is starting to see that staying outside in her yard and sniffing and enjoying outside is ok. She was scolded for going potty inside and then left outside so associated outside as maybe punishment. She does go and gets lots of praise when she does. She is very smart and With some consistent training she will be great. Roxy loves being with other dogs, big or small. Her preference is to sleep and curl up to a big dog friend. She loves to play with her humans but doesnt know how to play with other roommates. She does love being part of a pack of other babies. There is no aggression with this girl.

Since she didn't have a lot of attention, her best forever home would be with a family that is home all the time and can love on her and where she can be their best friend. She loves both men and ladies.

A retired couple or a single lady or man would be perfect. Children 12 or older would be a good choice if they are used to a small dog. She used to sleep in a cage but sleeps in a people bed and snuggles all night. You can go to UYR.org to complete an application.

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.

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!!

INITIAL BIO. 04/21/20. Toby is a very sweet and tiny boy, weighing in at 5 pounds. He is absolutely beautiful with gorgeous silver fur, chocolate socks and dark ear tips. He has the face of an angel, and he looks like he is smiling. He loves to cuddle, is good in the car, prefers to always be in a lap no matter where he is, and sleeps through the night.

Toby is currently awaiting bladder surgery and will need time to heal before he is ready for his new home. Stay tuned for more information on Toby's progress!

POOH BEAR BIO 7-9-20

My name is Pooh Bear and I am around 4 years old and 8 lbs. I was found as a stray and not claimed so the nice people at United Yorkie Rescue took me in to take care of me. I will not be available for adoption until after my spa day and vet check up on August 12. I have been with my foster family for one week now and I love it here. I have two other doggies to play with but they are a little scared of me since they dont know me well. I am very quiet, love being pet and cuddling with foster mom on her lap. I ride quietly in the car, eat and sleep good too. I am working on my house training skills as I dont tell foster mom when I have to potty outside. Stay tuned for more updates as they become available.
