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!!

Tater Tot and new family
Tater Tot

Congratulations Tater!

Tater Tot finally found his forever home. He was adopted by Linda and Robert, who are both retired and ready to spend all the time he needs adjusting to his new environment, continuing to build his confidence and helping him have the happiest life possible. He never again has to worry about who will be there to keep him company each and every day.

Tater now has a doggie sister, Ginger, who is ALSO a recent UYR graduate & totally adorable. As soon as Tater met Ginger, he tried to give her a lick-kiss right on the nose. FM was a little jealous, since she'd been begging for kisses for weeks now! Ginger must be more his type.

Tater & Ginger snuggled the whole way home. Linda also reports that after Tater's first evening at home, he has been trying very hard to introduce himself to his kitty siblings. He's still trying to figure out why they are hiding under the couch & why he can't follow them under there. Just as suspected, it only took him a few minutes to find every water bowl in the house. That is our Tater! Have fun and enjoy :)

Annie and new dad

12/02/2014 UPDATE! ANNIE WAS ADOPTED TODAY ~~ HOORAY! She has a little sister named Dixie and they are already getting along very well. Annie came to us very broken, with a severely broken leg and mammary tumors that had to be removed. But she was a real trooper and recuperated nicely. Wishing sweet Annie a happy, happy life!

NOODLES was a 9 year old 8.3 lb boy being fostered in Suwanee, GA just outside of Atlanta, whose owner passed away and Noodles was very sad to lose his best buddy.. He is a mild-mannered boy and totally adorable. UYR must have placed him in the perfect home because of the emails they update us with......please read below for updates on Noodles in his new forever home!

2nd update


I just wanted to let you know that Noodles is doing great. He acts just like he has been here forever. He lets you know now when it is time to eat. He lets you know when he wants to go outside. We bought him a car seat and he loves to ride and look outside.

Thanks Again.

1st update


Noodles is fine. He is so sweet. We took him to vet yesterday got him checked out. The Dr. said he is fine. His Dad took him today and got him groomed, he stayed with him did not want to leave him. He is getting used to us and he sleep all night last night with us. We love him. Thank you for choosing us to be his family. We will take good care of him. He is so good.

Dakota and new family

Dakota is happy in her new Texas home. Pictured is Mom Christine holding Dakota, Dad Mike holding Dakota's new fur-sister Sophie (who is also a UYR graduate), and her sister Lauren. Dakota was a bit loud and nervous when she met her new family, but opened up within minutes with her tail wagging wildly. Foster Mom & Dad were so proud of her confidence! She started following around her new pup mate Sophie and kissing Christine right away. Lauren got to hold Dakota on the long drive home from Florida to Texas and now she is reportedly her "main squeeze". We know Dakota found the perfect family to spoil her endlessly. Hooray!

Sophie and new family

Sophie was just adopted this morning by Christine and Mike Snyder who drove all the way from Texas to pick up their new baby girl. She will get to know her new family as they slowly make their way back home, taking many breaks for Sophie to run and play. Sophie doesn't know this yet, but she will be very excited when she finally realizes that she gets to go to work with Christine everyday and will never have to be home alone again. Just as she has always dreamed!!!

Missus and Mister have a new family

Here's a picture of happy Mother and Daughter w/Mister & Missus. The family is just thrilled with this precious little couple; the Father's words were "I couldn't imagine getting a more perfect couple of dogs." The teen-aged daughter is over-the-top happy. Both Mister and Missus are sleeping with their Forever Mom and Dad now. Such a happy ending for this precious bonded pair of doggies - we just love happy endings!
