Keelan and new mom
Keelan

Hello Catherine & Charley??

I had to write and tell you both how happy we are!!! I truly feel that God places us where, when and with whom he wants us to be with. Keelan being brought into my life has proved it again. He is my pride and joy! Even my patients at work ask how he is. I hope all is well with you both and the animal family.

You two are truly wonderful people!! Thanks for what you do!!!! Hugs, Anita & Keelan

Robbie, Janet, Jasmine and Randy.
Robbie

10/11/11: Robbie is integrating very well and we're enjoying him so much! We're feeling good about the transition and he is true to form about wanting to have someone with him.

Expectedly, Robbie did bark as you were departing Sunday but that ended fairly quickly when Randy told him to come on over to watch the game on TV with him. He only barked once again after that, a day later, last night as he tried to charm us to let him out of his crate for nighty night. He has taken his role as offcial morning rouser; upon returning from his a.m. potty he jogs up to wake Jazzy and to get Randy out of bed ... it's so funny to watch!

He has been nearly on schedule with his eliminating, has had no accidents, has demonstrated he LOVES being outside as much as possible, it seems. I think thesquirrels and chipmunks in the neighborhood are officially on guard now! He is giving lots of kisses and offering his tummy to each of us to rub. He sometimes falls asleep while we do it! Right now he is relaxing on his bed near my feetin my office while I work. All the walks and playing seem to be tiring him out and he is eating well. He did seem concerned that we dropped Jazzy off at school today and was sad after that. He wimpered on the ride home from school, but he came around once we were back home and went for a nice long nature walk. He attended his first soccer game with Jazzy last night. Several of the families there were smitten with him. He LOVED all the attention and petting. We were thrilled to share Robbie's story with those that asked about him and are so grateful to UYR for rescuing these precious pups. He is a true blessing.

Hugs,

Janet

Zoey and new family
Zoey

Zoey has adjusted quickly to her new home, and has so much energy she is running circles around her 2 sisters. They don't quite know what to make of her yet. All three of them are sleeping happily in our bed with us at night. I think we'll be working on her toilet habits for a while, but I don't care...she's worth it. She seems to be thriving! I can tell you that one little 3 pound dog has made a tremendous impact in this house. WE LOVE HER!

Timmy's family

Timmy after a tough day
Timmy

Thank you so much for your help and encouragement during the adoption

process. Timmy has been with us for 24 hours now, and I think he's

doing very well! Steve and I sure are enjoying having him around. Your

descriptions of Timmy were right on! He's mellow, social, quiet,

sweet, etc. He seems to love just being with us; in fact, he's right

next to me here on the couch while I'm typing this note.

I'm attaching some photos of Timmy doing his thing, and also a photo

with Steve and me.We feel very blessed to have Timmy in our lives..

Petunia at home with fursib
Petunia

Cinnamon (I used to be Petunia) is thankful for UYR. My FM showed me it was ok to be loved. She helped my mom by do a quick adoption and even helped with the long ride home to meet my dad and fursister Sweetie. Oh yeah and my Big brother. LOL My grandma loved meeting my FM and FFurbrother Logan. My human family kinda look like giants. I am learning about toys, stairs and grass. I love the backyard :) I have met my vet and he said I was going to adapt well with Sweetie. She was a rescue too. The girl Mandi who grooms Sweetie and me says I am so cute and lucky. Mom says she loves my kisses and even the sound of my voice. Next mom hopes to see a tail wag. So my mom and dad say thank you FM. You are special part of UYR.

Jezebel

We got double the pleasure when we adopted our two little yorkies

Jezebel and Matilda. These two little girls have come into our home

and quickly made it their own. They love to go for long walks, play

with their toys and of course they want lots of cuddle time. I was

amazed at how simple the adoption process was and how quickly we got

our two little girls. I only wish I could adopt a few more. If the

girls could talk I know they would say " Thanks United Yorkie Rescue!

Thanks for giving me another chance and saving my life".

Princess is really a Princess, now
Princess

Princess has been renamed Zoe.

We left for New York 2 weeks after adopting her. She travels very well in her seat (I got one like yours) and spends a lot of time looking out (although I'm not sure what she is seeing). We were making trips to the mountains about every other day and she looks forward to going. She doesn't go on the hiking trails, but we walk around on the flat ground while Jon does the trails.

She and the other girls are getting along very well. I just started feeding them out of one big bowl rather than individual bowls. It saves me a great deal of work. I had the problem that Sophie and Sadie knew Zoe was getting special stuff on her food, so of course, I had to give special to all. I'm sure Sophie and Sadie realize that they have Zoe to thank for the special food and now love her even more.

We think Zoe may be a bit senile, but we don't love her any less, after all, we are on our way to senility ourselves. Also, our vet thought she was closer to 12 years old rather that 8. She has a lot of spring in her walk, like a youngster. She can go up most of the stairs, but occasionally will roll down, then get up and try again. She is very resilient.

I am so glad that this worked out for us. She is so sweet and adorable. She looks very cute in her new sweater, which she will need tonight when the temperatures drop to 33 degrees with frost warnings.

Thank you again for our Zoe.

Tia

Hi, here is Tia's Happy Tails story.

Tia came to us because of a phone call from her foster mom. She told me she had just gotten a tiny little 2 1/2 pound female dog who had been tossed out by her breeder because she refused to make puppies. FM hoped to have her placed in a home with another little dog and since we have two, one from UYR (Libby) she thought Tia would be a good fit. Not sure we needed another dog I told her I would get back to her. After checking her out on UYR and talking to my husband we decided we already loved her and wanted her.

She had only been with her FM for a short time when we took her. So many changes in such a short time for such a little thing that at first she was very skittish, afraid of us, and not sure about eating, or where to potty. Her long tail stayed between her legs for days. But thank goodness for Cupcake and Libby--it was instantaneous that she attached herself to them and followed them everywhere.

Tia has been with us for about two months now. Her tail is up and wagging all the time. Though still a little skittish she loves us and wants to be around us all the time. She still is not a big fan of eating, but has put on almost a pound. She adores her fur sisters and has finally figured out how to play with them. It is so funny to watch when two or all three of them have a toy tug of war. Tia hasn't won the game yet, but she is in there trying her best.

She is still learning that people can be kind and loving. She may have had a rough start in life, but we are all making sure that the rest of her life is filled with love, affection, and happiness.

Jolie has a new home
Jolie

It took no time at all for Jolie's inner diva to emerge. She is the social butterfly of the neighborhood, likes everyone she meets (except for cats) when she goes for her walks.

Such a smart one too ! This little diva knows how to get what she wants and let us know when she doesn't like something.

She is learning to play with toys and ask for treats. Jolie's best feature is that happy-happy tail. It wiggles and wags constantly, so cute.

United Yorkie Rescue did such a great job in matching us with the perfect yorkie.

We are so honored to be Jolie's people. Jolie is the best dog in the world !

Thanks so much !

Remy and new family
Remy

Remy is thriving in his new home! Remy was scheduled to be put to sleep the morning that two of our volunteers saved him!! Here's an update from his mom:

I had my family reunion yesterday. Matt and I took Remy with us...he was awesome!! Then we stopped at my nephews baseball game with at least 100 people attending. He was friendly and entertaining, not the same dog that came to live with us several weeks ago. I had a friend tell me that a dog can forget bad things that happen to them. I think it must be true!!

Daisy / Natti
Natti

Hi! My name is Daisy.

UYR rescued me from 5 yrears in a puppy mill. My foster mom lives in Miami Fla. She was very good and patient with me. I was there for a couple of months. My new mommy saw my picture online at the UYR wesite. She fell in love with JUST ME immediately on sight! I have had a long trip up from Florida. With lots of careful planning and help from many goodhearted people, I now live happily on the coast of Maine!

I have two little brothers. They are miniature poodles. One is black and one is white. We get along splendidly! I have already taken over my brother Brutus's bed and he is fine with that. I feel secure there while watching the family do their thing.

Most of all, I think I love lying on the deck out back while my mommy reads. I listen to the seagulls (we live across from a beach) and love to romp in my big green yard. Sometimes I sit and smell the pine air and just stare at the beautiful Camden hills behind our house. It is certainly a different life than living in a cage. All these sights and sounds are new to me and I like them all! I think the rest of my life with this family that I love and who loves me will make those five years just fade in my memory. My new family is very patient with me as I learn good habits. Thank you UYR for bringing me this far. I can't wait to see what each new day brings.

Thanks for listening, your friend Daisy. xoxo
