At United Yorkie we are blessed to with an extraordinary success rate in finding forever homes for our rescued and surrendered Yorkies. To share this joy we’ve created this “Happy Tails” page. Happy Tails is devoted to the celebration of these wonderful success stories with everyone who loves dogs. These stories are written by the new parents as they relate the wonderment of the new addition to their lives. We hope that you enjoy these "Tails" as much as we have. Thank you!!

On 11/10/15 I was adopted by a wonderful retired couple and had my name changed to Briaga. Here is what they told my former foster mom.

"Got a million dollar pooch here...she's a real jewel. It's not been a week since we adopted her and she's settled in like she's been here forever. That little lady is so smart. She loves to go for walks with Larry, tail held high, and sits down nicely to get her leash on, and again for treats when she gets home. What's amazing is that she knows where she lives (the townhouses all look the same to me) and we still bypass our own door, especially in the dark. She watches the squirrels out the window and looks up into the trees for them. She sticks to me like glue and if I leave she's on Larry's knee so fast. She gets a brush each morning and her face and eyes cleaned...I want to make the grooming experience easier for her. We thoroughly enjoy her company even if cushions and toys are scattered everywhere when she has her mad moments. She keeps behind me going downstairs but just flies up them. When I'm doing yoga she gets in one of her four beds and snuggles down, keeping one eye open. She's totally spoiled already and enjoys her frequent naps. She answers to her name and usual noises no longer alarm her, like the garage door and sump pump. We love her dearly.

Mr. Jiggs

Update 11/2/15 Hooray I'm adopted to the same family who adopted my brother, Archie. We'll be together again!

Mr. Jiggs tells his story: I am a 3 pound little boy Yorkie, 9 years of age. I had to come back to my Foster Mom in St. Angar, Iowa since my adoptive Mommy fell and was injured so she could not give me the proper care and love like she had been doing! I know she loved me a lot and this was hard for her. I am unable to go up or down stairs or jump up on things. I have wobbly back legs which prevents this. I can walk ok and I can run a little bit but really like to be carried around.

Buckley has a new home

Hello Buckley has been adopted! He lives about 4 blocks from his foster mommy, so we will see each other often. Mary Lou could not be a better fit for Buck, he has 2 fur sisters that he has been playing with a lot. Today is a happy day! United Yorkie Rescue has helped another "difficult" unwanted fur baby find the home he deserves!

Appreciation to all involved in his happy story.
