Holly is very loved by her new mom and dad.
Holly

2/15/20 Hooray for Holly. She was adopted today. Little Holly was found roaming the streets, alone and very scared. She was picked up by animal control and taken to the shelter. After spending several days in the shelter waiting and hoping for someone to come get her, no one did, she became a United Yorkie Rescue pup.

When Holly was taken to the vet it was discovered that she needed surgery. Holly had several mammary tumor masses that had to be removed. She also needed a dental badly as she has some serious dental disease. She had extensive labs and x-rays done. Soon after that her surgery was scheduled. Holly recovered from her surgery and was great. Her foster parents saw she was a sweet girl, but she was not really fond of other dogs. They knew this pup who loved people needed to be an only dog in her forever home.

Today Holly found that perfect forever home. She has a mommy and daddy all to herself and the home she always wanted. She has a nice yard and a sunny lanai. She will even have human relatives who are ready to love her. Her foster mom and dad promised Holly to never desert her or stop loving her. She will receive unconditional love, and in her new mommy's words she will be pampered like a princess. Holly will have the royal treatment the rest of her life. We are so happy for Holly. Happy Tails, sweet girl.

Chance and his daddy. It is happy puppy love.
Chance

1/31/20 Chance was adopted today. His story was so sad until his luck turned around. Chance's owner passed away, but no one knew. Chance was alone in the home and went an unknown number of days without food or water. When his owner's death was discovered, Chance was taken to the shelter. He arrived there with severe dehydration, hypothermia, and vascular collapse. He was unable to rise from lying on his side. He had bloody diarrhea and was vomiting dark material. He was breathing with great effort and wheezing. He was not interested in food and could only pick his head up for short periods of time. His blood was dark and thick. The shelter immediately started everything to get him stabilized, but were highly concerned about secondary problems related to his severe dehydration - damage to his organs, damage to the GI tract, a secondary bacterial infection due to intestinal tract damage, and swelling of the brain due to the abrupt change in the electrolyte content of the blood. The shelter could only do so much. Chance needed to be hospitalized at a veterinary clinic to be monitored for problems and given appropriate support care.

The shelter called an officer for immediate transport to the emergency clinic overnight. They notified the on-call vet to monitor him and give him supportive care. The vet was told to euthanize him if his systems start to shut down and he was in organ failure. The emergency vet did bloodwork and continued with medicine and fluids. Chance started to do better. When he returned to the shelter the next day, he was able to stand and he was eating and drinking. His chemistry was improving and everything was looking better. The shelter continued with fluids and medication. They knew Chance needed more then they could give him.

The call went out for a rescue to give Chance a chance. He needed to leave the shelter as soon as possible and be taken to a 24-hour veterinary care facility where he would continue to receive supportive care and appropriate treatment for extreme dehydration and any other medical issues that would arise because of that. And United Yorkie Rescue answered that call.

Chance was picked up from the shelter and taken to the 24-hour emergency care vet. All signs pointed to Chance improving steadily. That was just the beginning of Chance's story. Chance made it and thrived in his foster home. He received all the medical care he needed and so much more. Finally he was ready for is forever home. Today that happened, and it was the best day of Chance's life. Chance was adopted. Now he has a wonderful forever home all his own. He has mostly retired daddy all to himself. He will get to go everywhere with his daddy because Chance will be the only dog in his daddy's life. The minute Chance met his daddy he knew he was home forever, and could anything be better? Happy Tails, Chance.

My new mommy really loves me
CoCo FL

1-19-20 CoCo the cutie was adopted today. This sweet girl arrived at United Yorkie Rescue from a high-kill shelter. CoCo was a loving and loyal companion all her life to her former owners. Once she became older and needed veterinary care, she was dumped at the shelter - heartbreaking! CoCo received all the medical care she needed while in her foster home. Her skin and ear infections were treated and she got better and prettier every day. CoCo's foster parents found out what a sweetheart she is. Still it took almost 6 months to get CoCo really healthy and ready for her forever life. Today CoCo found forever love in the arms of her forever mommy. She will never be abandoned again; she will never find herself alone and in the shelter ever again. From now on until forever CoCo will be loved and cared for. She has a home with doggie playmates and even a cat. She has a nice fenced yard to hang out in. Best of all CoCo has a stay at home mom and dad. The best life ever started today for CoCo. Happy forever and ever to CoCo.

I finally found my forever mommy. I am so happy.
Lilly

1-17-20 Lilly was adopted today. It took 3 months but today was the day. Lilly was adopted into her forever home. Lilly lived with her first mommy all her life. But then her mommy got sick and had to go live where they didn't allow dogs. After Lilly's first visit to the vet it was found she had some medical issues and her medicine would cost money each month. Lilly was so afraid. Who would want a beautiful, sweet girl who had some medical problems? Lilly shouldn't have worried. Today she found that wonderful person who loved her so much and didn't care she had medical issues. No matter how much it cost her new mommy was going to take care of Lilly for the rest of her life. Her new mommy is a stay at home mommy and will take Lilly wherever she goes. Lilly is going to have such a happy, wonderful life. Happy Tails, sweet Lilly. You have found your happily ever after.

I have a great new mommy and daddy. I am so lucky.
Daisy Mae

1-11-19 Sweet Daisy Mae was adopted today. This adorable puppy arrived at her foster home in August, when she was 4 months old. Her former owners had just found out she had a liver shunt and needed an expensive operation to correct it. They couldn't afford the operation and with great sadness they surrendered Daisy to United Yorkie Rescue so she could get her surgery. Daisy was a little thin and not as active as such young puppy should be because of the shunt. Her foster parents immediately started her on the Rx Liver Diet and within a few days she became the active puppy she was meant to be. Daisy was able to get her surgery at 6 months old. Her recovery was long but went great. Two months after the surgery her liver levels were checked again and hooray!! her surgery was declared a success and she could get started on real food. A month later Daisy was fully on regular dog food and ready for her forever home. Today Daisy Mae found exactly the home she needed. She has a stay at home mommy and daddy, two doggie friends, and a great big fenced yard for a puppy who loves to run and run. This puppy will have the best care and the most love any puppy ever had. She will have so much attention. They will play with her and throw toys and balls for her to retrieve for as long as Daisy want to play, and then she will get to rest with them. Everything is going to be so wonderful for this puppy who, with her kisses gave everyone so much love, will have the best life any dog could ever hope for. Happy Tails Daisy.

She now will spend her life in the style she had always craved two stay at home parents and a human sister - getting all the love and attention she deserves.

Rosie

12-29-19 Rosie was adopted today and is a very lucky girlie. Rosie came to United Yorkie Rescue because her previous owner could no longer give her the attention and care she needed due to her own medical issues. Rosie was with her foster Mom and Dad along with 4 resident Yorkies and 2 cats for 5 months. While in her foster home Rosie received all of the care, love and medical attention that she needed. She has come such a long way from the timid little girl whose life was turned upside down in an instant, to a happy well adjusted little girlie, all thanks to the hard work of her foster parents and 4 legged foster friends. Rosie has cataracts and through labs and testing we found that Rosie also has kidney disease. Thankfully these special needs never got in the way of Rosie doing what she loves best. Rosie just loves being outside where she can explore, sniff, investigate and just take in the outdoors. It took a while to find the perfect forever home for Rosie but then, hooray, it finally happened. Rosie is now in her forever home with her forever Mommy. Her forever Mommy is a stay at home doggy Mom who will give Rosie all of the love, care and attention that she deserves even with some special needs. Rosies new Mommy has adopted 8 rescue Yorkies over the years which is great news for Rosie, this Mom really knows her Yorkies. Rosie now has her very own fenced yard, so just like at her foster home, she has the freedom to roam, sniff, explore and enjoy the great outdoors. Then when she comes in after all of that fresh air and adventure she has her new Mommy all to herself to love on her. Ah, what a life. We are all so happy for Rosie and for her new forever Mommy.

I have the best new family any pup could ever have.
Mishu

12-27-19 Mishu was adopted today. Mishu was having some trouble in his first home learning his doggie manners. In his quiet foster home he learned how to be a well-behaved fellow. Mishu is a high energy, active, 2 year old little guy and his foster parents knew he needed a young, active family with a fenced yard for Mishu to be happy in his forever life. Today he found that. What a family he now has. Kids to play with and a wonderful fenced yard. Everything a young, active dog needs in his forever home and for his best life ever. Love, fun, and games, forever.

I love my new mommy
Lexie

12-27-19 Lexie was adopted today. Lexie's former owners sadly surrendered Lexie because they felt their home was too active for her. They felt sure Lexie would be happier in a calmer, quieter, home where she would be the center of attention. Lexie is super sensitive to sounds and barks at unexpected/unknown noises. Her foster parents knew Lexie would not do well in an apartment or condo. She had to have an adult only home, but not where the neighbors were too close so that if Lexie barked they would not be bothered. Lexie found her perfect home today. A home with a mommy and daddy who would be home with her all the day. Lexie is the only pup in their life, and the attention she loved to have would now be all hers. It was everything Lexie wanted, needed, and dreamed of having. Lexie now gets to live her best life forever. Lucky Lexie got her happily ever after.

When Bandit arrived at his foster home his foster mom made sure he received the vet care he needed. Bandit was happy in his foster home. He enjoyed his time there while his mouth healed. When he was all healed, and it took a little while, Bandit could play with his toys without pain. and he especially loved the squeakily ones. Finally, Bandit and his foster knew was ready for his forever home. His foster mom knew he needed a stay at home mom or dad, since he loves his people so much. Bandit loves to have all the attention for himself, and lucky for him he now has that. As soon as Bandit met his forever home he knew she was going to give him the forever home he wanted. He will be the only dog in his new mom's life. Bandit will have so much love and attention. He will get to go everywhere with his forever mom and won't be alone hardly ever at all.
