Abby

MEET ABBY. Abby is an adorable little yorkie who is almost 11 years old and weighs 4-1/2 lbs. Abby is being fostered in Stuart, FL.

Due to Covid-19 all dogs fostered in the state of Florida must be adopted within the State of Florida.

THANK YOU TO ABBY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Michele Matthews, Barbie Asplundh, Ryan Lewis, Sandy Pagnotta, Patricia Beltramello, Rebecca Moseley

UPDATED BIO 12/11/2020: Sweet Abby has been in her foster home just a few days, but long enough for foster mom and dad to know that she is a very sweet-natured little princess. Abby was surrendered to UYR along with her doggie friends Zoe and Tommy. Their owner loved them a lot, but was no longer able to care for them and wanted them to have a better life.

Abby has seen the vet and had her vaccinations updated, as well as a much-needed nail trim and also labs. She has fleabite dermatitis and has lost a lot of her hair from scratching, but it will grow up back in nicely now that she is flea-free. She will have a dental on Tuesday and will likely lose some teeth. Abby did have a bacterial infection in both of her ears and skin, and will be on Clavamox for 10 days to clear this up.

Foster mom has discovered that Abby does not like car rides, but she is very dog friendly since she has grown up with other dogs - she needs a companion dog close to her age and size in her forever home. She needs some reinforcement in both the leash training and house-training and her foster parents are working with her on this. She will bark to get your attention, but settles down nicely and is sleeping through the night.

PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING:

- Due to Abby's small size, she can only be adopted into an adult-only home. No exceptions will be made.

- Abby absolutely needs a companion dog in her adoptive home close to her age and size. Please keep this in mind before applying to adopt Abby.

INITIAL BIO 12/07/2020: Abby just arrived in UYR today, along with her doggie friends Zoe & Tommy. They were well-loved in the only home they have ever known until their dad passed away earlier this year, and their mom became unable to continue to care for them. Although these three little ones have always lived together, they each have their own personalities and do not need to be adopted together.

Abby is an adorable little girl, but needs some reinforcement in the doggie manners department her foster parents will be working with her on house-training and walking on a leash. Abby is suffering from fleabite dermatitis and has lost most of the hair due to itching. It will grow back now that she is free of fleas. Abby needs to see the vet to have a well-doggie check and get updated on her vaccinations. There is so much more to learn about Abby, so please stay tuned for updates after she has settled into her foster home and seen the vet.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Abbys small size, she can only be adopted into an adult-only home. No exceptions will be made.


To date we've spent $570.15 on Abby's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $505.00 in donations.

Baxter

This adorable little Morkie (Maltese/Yorkie mix) is Baxter. Baxter is 7 1/2 pounds of cuteness and approximately 9 years old. He is being fostered in Bradenton, FL.

Due to Covid-19 dogs being fostered need to be adopted within the state of Florida.

THANK YOU TO BAXTER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Angela Holshouser, Maria Doherty

UPDATED BIO 01/02/2021: Baxter is an adorable Morkie who has been in his foster home almost two weeks. He was the only dog in his home and well-loved. Then came the time when his former owners could no longer care for him. The information from the previous owners stated that they thought Baxter was in the very early beginning stage of kidney illness and no medication was needed, but he was being fed RX food to promote kidney health. GOOD NEWS! Baxter has seen the vet and had extensive labs taken and there is no indication at this time of him having any kidney issues - hooray!

Baxter has settled in nicely in his foster home and his foster parents are continuing to find out more about this very sweet little fella. He is a gentle little boy and loves attention and affection. Due to the recent changes in his life, he will take some time to warm up to his humans, but once he does, he will be your best friend and follow you around everywhere. Sweet! It was initially thought that since he had always been the only dog in the home, he would prefer that. However, in his foster home, there is another little dog who is older, quiet and submissive and Baxter is very accepting of her. He would not enjoy being in the home with an active playful puppy.

Baxter is great in the car and he walks very nicely on a leash. His foster parents are continuing to work with him on reinforcing house-training, but in his new environment he may not yet know how to ask about doing his business outside. When taken outside, he knows exactly what to do right away, and for this reason, he will be a good learner once he adjusts to the routine of his new home. Baxter is friendly with older children and would do well in a calm family environment with children 14 years old or older. Baxter is not friendly with kitty cats, so please consider this before applying for him.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Baxters small size, he cannot be placed into a home with children under 14 years of age.

UPDATED BIO 12/27/2020: Baxter is an adorable Morkie who has only been in his foster home for about a week. In his previous home, he was the only dog and was well loved. Then came the time when his former owners could no longer care for him. They learned that Baxter is in the very early beginning stage of kidney illness. He is currently on no medication except for the special prescription food to promote kidney health. Dogs with kidney illness who are receiving the proper care can live for many years. Baxter has many more years of living left in him as long as this protocol of prescription food and regular vet visits are done.

Baxter is settling nicely into his foster home and his foster parents are getting to know him. He is a very sweet, gentle little boy and loves attention and affection.

Initial bio 12/20/20 Baxter is an adorable Morkie who only arrived at his foster home. Baxter was the only dog in his home and well loved.

He is currently on no medication except for the special prescription food to promote kidney health. Dogs with kidney illness who are receiving the proper care can live for many years. Baxter has many more years of living left in him as long as he receives this proper care.

When his first family could no longer care for him, he was adopted by a wonderful person who didn't want Baxter to go to the shelter. Unfortunately, Baxter didn't like the younger dogs in his new home. He didn't want to play with them or even be their friend. When they came near him he let them know that he didn't want to have anything to do with them. Baxter's new mommy knew her home was not the right home for Baxter. His mommy knew that United Yorkie Rescue would find him a better home.

Baxter is settling into his foster home and his foster parents are getting to know him. Baxter most likely needs to be an only pup in the house. It is possible he might be okay with an older submissive, quiet dog. His foster parent will know more about that in the days to come. Baxter is great in the car and he walks very nicely on a leash. He doesn't appear to be house trained, but in his new environment he may not yet know how to ask about doing his business outside. His foster parents believe that Baxter needs a quiet adult only home. There is so much more to know about this adorable fluff ball. Come back soon because we know you want to find out what we find out too.

I am so happy to be out of the shelter. Can you tell?

I will love you forever and ever.

Corky

MEET CORKY! He is a little Italian Greyhound mix. Corky is only 2 years old and weighs 6.5 pounds. Corky is being fostered in Titusville, FL.

Due to Covid-19 all dogs fostered in the state of Florida must be adopted within the State of Florida.

THANK YOU TO CORKY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Rebecca Moseley

UPDATED BIO 01/10/2021: Who would have thought that an adorable, tiny little Italian Greyhound Mix would be in a Yorkie rescue group? When you know there is a shelter dog that needs you, one who needs to be out of the shelter and in a quiet, safe place, there is no question that our hearts would open up to little Corky and make him our first United Yorkie Rescue Italian Greyhound Mix rescue boy.

Corky was found by Animal Control wandering the streets back in late December no microchip was found. He was posted on the shelter website and he waited and waited for his family to come find him and take him home. No one came for him. This tiny dog didn't belong in a shelter with so many big loud dogs. Finally, the shelter was ready to put him up for adoption, then their vet resigned and there was no one to neuter Corky. The shelter knew the only place for him was a rescue and so this little guy became a United Yorkie Rescue dog.

Corky has only been in his foster home for several days, but that is long enough for his foster family to know that he is the sweetest little boy and they already adore him. He yearns to be around his new foster family and loves to be held and cuddled and snuggled under the covers at night. Corky likes to talk to his family - not a bark or whine - but something in between. He is most likely letting them know how much he appreciates being rescued and finding a temporary loving family to show him that he is safe and that he will never ever end up in a shelter again. His foster family is working with him on reinforcing house-training. He is young and smart and will catch on quickly.

Corky didn't take long to make himself right at home. He hopped right into the bed as if that's what he is supposed to do, and proceeded to sit in a chair at the dinner table. Why not? Of course, this isn't proper puppy protocol, and he is learning house manners and catching on quickly. He thought when he saw one of the resident chickens in the yard that he was supposed to chase it, but that's a no-no lol! The Italian Greyhound is classified as a sight hound, so it's best that Corky's forever family only have perhaps one other dog. Cats, rabbits, etc. would probably not be a good idea. Corky prefers the company of the humans in the home over the other dogs in the home, so he would also be fine as an only doggie.

Because Corky really loves attention from his foster family, it would be nice for him to have a home with at least one stay-at-home parent. Italian Greyhounds are highly social dogs and love attention from their family. Corky still needs to be neutered and have some deciduous baby teeth pulled, and once that is done, he will be ready for his forever home. There is so much more to learn about this sweet little boy, so come back soon to learn more about him.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Corky's small size, he needs an adult only home or a home with children over the age of 13. Keep in mind Corky is very young and since he has already lost one family, his forever family needs to be one that will be with him for his expected life span of 15 years or more.

Initial bio 1-8-21 Who would have thought that an adorable, tiny little Italian Greyhound Mix would be in a Yorkie rescue? When you know there is a pup that needs you, that needs to be out of the shelter and in a quiet, safe place, there is no question that our hearts would open up to little Corky and make him our first United Yorkie Rescue Italian Greyhound Mix rescue boy.

Corky was found by Animal Control wandering the streets back in late December. He was checked for a chip, of course there was none. He was posted on the shelter site and he waited and waited for his family to come find him and take him home. They didn't come. This tiny dog didn't belong in a shelter with so many big loud dogs. Finally, the shelter was ready to put him up for adoption, then their vet resigned and there was no one to neuter Corky. The shelter knew the only place for him was a rescue and so this sweet, loving little guy became a United Yorkie Rescue dog.

The shelter's rescue coordinator said he was a little shy and skittish. The minute he was settled in the car and harnessed in Corky became the happiest, most loving little fellow you could ever meet. His UYR rescuer sat in the back seat next to him and all he did was cuddle up, and snuggle next to her. He wanted to be loved and petted and get belly rubs. He knew shelter life was behind him finally and he would have a family again. When he met his foster mom, he already had his tail wagging. It was a little chilly so she wrapped him in a blanket and he cuddled in the blanket and snuggled up against her. This little fellow is such a love. How could we even consider leaving him at the shelter? We couldn't.

Corky will be getting his neuter and have some baby teeth removed in the near future, and Corky should be ready for his forever home. Due to Corky's small size he needs an adult only home or a home with children over the age of 13. Keep in mind Corky is very young and since he already lost one family his forever family needs to be one that will be with him for his whole life of 15 years or more.


To date we've spent $0 on Corky's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $30.00 in donations.

Gypsy

MEET GYPSY. Gypsy is a sweet little female yorkie who is 5-1/2 years old and weighs a chubby 14-1/2 lbs. Gypsy is blind but she does great. Gypsy is being fostered in Spring Hill, FL. Due to Covid-19 all dogs fostered in the state of Florida must be adopted within the State of Florida.

THANK YOU TO GYPSY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta

INITIAL BIO 12/18/2020: Gypsy has just arrived in her foster home today; she was sadly surrendered by her owner who she had been with since a puppy, but who is no longer able to care for her. Gypsy has had a wonderful life with her owner and was very loved and cared-for in her home. We are happy that her owner reached out to United Yorkie Rescue for help with re-homing this little princess.

Gypsy is a very sweet and gentle little girl. She began having some eye issues a couple of years ago and had a positive ANA test (antinuclear antibody) at the time. This test helps evaluate any autoimmune disorders/responses that may affect tissues and organs. For Gypsy, only her eyes were affected and she is now completely blind. She also has dry eye syndrome which will require eyedrops for the rest of her life. Gypsy has been under the care of a doggie ophthalmologist, and will have a follow-up with him in a few weeks to ensure that her autoimmune response has run its course and she no longer needs the RX drops for inflammation and will only need drops for dry eye syndrome.

Gypsy has always been the only dog in her home. Due to her blindness, she is a bit anxious around other dogs. Her previous owner feels that Gypsy would be happiest being an only dog, or perhaps with another calm dog close to her age and size. Gypsy is overweight at 15-1/2 pounds; her healthy weight should be around 10-11 pounds, so her foster mom will be working on getting her to a healthier weight.

Please dont turn away from Gypsy due to her blindness. She is a happy and otherwise healthy little girlie in spite of her loss of vision. She will occasionally bump into things, but once she maps her way around the house, this will get better with time. Since Gypsy cannot see, she relies on sound to find her person and she will soon get used to her foster moms voice. Gypsy would prefer a quiet home for this reason. This precious girl is so deserving of an understanding forever home, and if you adopt her, she will love you with all her heart and be a loyal loving companion.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Gypsys vision loss, she can only be adopted into an adult-only home.


To date we've spent $99.45 on Gypsy's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $25.00 in donations.

I want my next forever home to be my last forever home.

I love to be out in the fenced yard.
Florida
Jackson

This adorable young Yorkie mix fellow is Jackson (Jackie). He is only 16 months old and weighs a little too skinny 8.5 pounds. Jackie is being fostered in Leesburg, FL.

Due to Covid-19 dogs being fostered in Florida must be adopted within the state of Florida.

THANK YOU TO JACKSON'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Nestor Sanchez, Ralph Watts, Susan Chen, Joel Tobiansky, Silverman Fence Mfg. Inc.

Initial bio 1/2/21 Little Jackie is working hard to settle down in his foster home. This sweet boy, due to no fault of his own, is now in his fourth home (that we know of so it could be more) in his very short life. His foster parents have promised Jackie that his next home will be his forever home and he will never have to move to another home and family again. In his last home this playful puppy and his brother were getting aggressive with each other and since his brother had been in the home first, poor Jackie had to find a home that was better for him. His former owner was afraid one of the dogs would get hurt, so to keep both dogs safe Jackie became a United Yorkie Rescue dog.

Jackie has made friends with the other young dog in the home, but only tentatively. He is just not sure of his place in his foster home yet. He will need more time to become good friends with the other dogs in his foster home. We don't know too much about this sweet boy but we are learning more each day. He will need some time to feel at home to let the real Jackie shine through. We know he is fine in the car and he is a good eater, which is good since he needs to gain about half a pound. Jackie boy is an active little fellow. We know he loves to run and what a runner he is. He can race around the backyard at top speed. He really needs a home with a fenced yard so he can do what he loves and that is to run. He does well on a leash and enjoyed the long walks he has gone on. He can easily walk a mile or more with no problem.

Jackie knows come and stay and let's go out. We are not yet sure what other commands he knows, and unfortunately, we are not sure he is totally house trained yet. We also know he doesn't like cats. The first time he met a cat he barked and barked and it was not the friendliest bark either. You could tell he wanted nothing to do with that cat, who decided she didn't want anything to do with Jackie either.

He definitely likes people, and has already given his foster parents lots of love and kisses. He has taken his place at night in bed with his foster mom and dad and his foster brothers and sister. We believe Jackie needs at least one stay at home a lot person. There will be so much more to learn about our Jackie boy. New pictures and lots more to come on Florida's new puppy Jackson, affectionally knows as Jackie. young and he needs a family who can give him a lifetime of a forever home for all his life, which could be over 15 years. Come back soon.

Due to Jackies small size, he cannot go to a family with children under the age of 12. Please remember that Jackie is very young. He needs a family who can give him a lifetime commitment of a forever home for all his life, which could be over 15 years.


To date we've spent $571.13 on Jackson's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $630.00 in donations.

I am a handsome little boy

Sparky

MEET SPARKY. He is a sweet little male yorkie who is 6-1/2 years old and weighs 7 lbs. Sparky is being fostered in Tampa, FL.

Due to Covid-19 all dogs fostered in the state of Florida must be adopted within the State of Florida.

UPDATED BIO 12/31/2020: Sparky has been in his foster home almost a week now. He was sadly surrendered by his owner since she worked long hours and little Sparky was left in the crate all day long. She knew he deserved a happier and more active life, and when she contacted UYR, of course we said we would bring him into our Foster Program. He rides very nicely in the car what a good boy!

Sparky is a very sweet little boy who is happy and lively but . he does tend to like to bark so he really needs a stand-alone house so as not to annoy neighbors lol! He loves to run a lot, so he also needs a fenced-in yard so he can enjoy his outdoor adventures and run to his hearts content. Sparky really enjoys receiving attention and sitting in his persons lap. He has previously been around another large dog and in his foster home there are two small dogs, so he can be placed in a home with another playful dog, preferably close to his age and size, or he may be just as happy being an only dog as long as he gets lots of attention. Since he has been left alone so much, it would be great if he had at least one stay-at-home parent. We do not know any history with children at this point, but due to his size, he can only be placed in a home with children 14+ years old.

Sparky has had his well-dog visit including labs and he is a perfectly healthy and happy little boy. He does need a neuter and a dental and may lose several teeth, and that is being scheduled.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Sparkys small size, he can only be placed into a home with children 14+ years old.

INITIAL BIO 12/26/2020: Sparky was sadly surrendered by his owner since she worked long hours and little Sparky was left in the crate all day long. She knew he deserved a happier and more active life, and when she contacted UYR, of course we said we would bring him into our Foster Program.

We do not know any history with children at this point, but due to his size, he can only be placed in a home with children 14+ years old.

Sparky will be seeing the vet next week for a well dog check, and to schedule an appointment for a neuter and dental. Please stay tuned to learn more about this adorable little boy as his foster parents get to know him better.

I am a handsome fella in need of a haircut

Florida
Tommy

MEET TOMMY. Tommy is an adorable little male yorkie who is 9-1/2 years old and weighs a chubby 7 lbs. Tommy is being fostered in Vero Beach, FL.

Due to Covid-19 all dogs fostered in the state of Florida must be adopted within the State of Florida.

THANK YOU TO TOMMY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Michele Matthews, Barbie Asplundh, Patricia Beltramello, Lisa Kruckow, Matthew Baughman in honor of JoAnn McKnight, Karen Keaton

UPDATED BIO 12/16/2020: Tommy is doing really well in his foster home he has had all of his vaccinations and a dental as well. The daily treatments for the terrible yeast infection he came in with are working well and he is improving every day.

Tommys house-training is on-going and he is learning where it is and is not appropriate to do his business. This has been challenging since Tommy was diagnosed with bladder stones. His foster parents take him on short walks in the evening and he walks very well on a leash. Tommy would like to have a fenced backyard to chase lizards and a doggie companion close to his age and size to cuddle with, but this is not a deal-breaker. He enjoys cuddling with the resident yorkie in the home, but also loves sitting close to foster mom and enjoys following her around the house and being by her side. He is still a little shy, but warms up quickly.

Tommy is on a prescription food in the hopes of dissolving the bladder stones so that surgery is not necessary; for this reason, he will not be able to be adopted until mid-to-late January. Applications are still being accepted for him.

PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING:

- We do not know if Tommy has been around children, but due to his small size, he cannot be adopted into a home with children under the age of 14 years old.

- Tommy absolutely needs a companion dog in his home close to his age and size. Please keep this in mind before applying to adopt Tommy.

INITIAL BIO 12/07/2020: Tommy just arrived in UYR today, along with his doggie friends Abby & Zoe. They were well-loved in the only home they have ever known until their dad passed away earlier this year, and their mom became unable to continue to care for them. Although these three little ones have always lived together, they each have their own personalities and do not need to be adopted together.

Tommy is a cute little fella, but needs some reinforcement in the doggie manners department his foster parents will be working with him on house-training and walking on a leash. Tommy needs to see the vet to have a well-doggie check and get updated on his vaccinations. There is so much more to learn about Tommy, so please stay tuned for updates after he has settled into his foster home and seen the vet.

PLEASE NOTE: We do not know if Tommy has been around children, but due to his small size, he cannot be adopted into a home with children under the age of 14 years old.

Annie
Illinois
Annie IL

Meet Annie, a sweet and very thin little rescue being fostered in Southwestern Illinois. She is estimated to be 10 years old and is 4 skinny pounds. Due to COVID concerns, adoptions must be within a 100 mile radius of the foster home location.

THANK YOU TO ANNIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Alex Leblanc, Karen Pigman, Andrea Navarro Hays, Valerie Claxton Buzduhanov, Karry Rogers, Angie Cagle, George Jonas, Sandy Pagnotta, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Sandy Pagnotta, Carol Goin, Shannon Jablonski, Alex LeBlanc, Judi Laverty, Anthony Currier

THANK YOU TO ANNIE'S FACEBOOK DONORS!

Cheryl Ziegler, Peggy Burdick Buchanan, George Jonas, Lisa Cox, Suzan Robison, Adrienne Clark-Fisk, Penny Cooper

Update 12/1/20: Annie was doing so well until Thanksgiving night she had a serious setback that we did not expect. She started fainting repeatedly, approximately every 10 minutes at one point. I rushed her to the ER and she was diagnosed with a severe heart arrhythmia that caused her fainting (syncopal episodes) and I was told she needed to see a cardiologist for further testing. The cardiologist was booked, so we made the first available appointment for Dec. 22nd, but the cardiologist called us on Monday, 11/30 and said given the fact that she was continuing to faint several times a day, we needed to rush her down to his clinic 2 hours away and get her admitted through the ER there.

So off we went and I sat in the car for about 6 hours while the doctors tested and examined her. It is determined she has sick sinus syndrome (SSS), along with degenerative valve disease. She has been started on medication to hopefully reduce or stop the syncopal episodes, but the only true cure for SSS is a pacemaker. Given her age and multiple heart problems, we are waiting to see how well the medicine works before putting her through an extensive and risky surgery. The ER visit and diagnostic testing with the cardiologist were extremely expensive so if you can find it in your heart to donate to Annie's vet bills, please consider a donation to help UYR with this sweet girls care.

Update 11/6/20: Hi everyone, Annie here! Foster Mom (FM) said I could talk this time since I'm starting to feel better! The amazing Dogtor was able to sneak me in a whole week earlier than my scheduled appointment. First, I have gained about a pound since being with FM, which is amazing! I eat like a horse and she said my ribs have filled out a lot. I am also heartworm negative! I also have a huge UTI, which was not really a surprise to FM. A couple more serious issues are that my red blood count and hemoglobin are extremely low. Not low enough to need a transfusion, because they are making more at this point, but we need to keep watch. Also, my liver is inflamed and that's a big concern. However, I have massive infection throughout my body so I am on high dose antibiotics to help all of the infections I have. I have infection in my mouth from my rotten teeth, of course my UTI, and serious skin infections. Dogtor said I need to come back after 3 weeks on the antibiotics and get repeat labs. If my liver values are not improved, we may need to do an ultrasound to see why it's inflamed. But the antibiotics will clear up my UTI, and will make my mouth feel better for a while. Dogtor also wants to hold off doing my dental and spay until I'm a little healthier and heavier to make sure I will be okay during the surgery, so I will be staying with FM for a while and that is just fine with me she feeds me a lot! I'll update again after my next labs in three weeks. Thanks for all your love and support! Love, Annie

Initial Bio 10/29/20: Annie is a 10 year old (guestimate), vaccinated, very emaciated yorkie/silky mix who was pulled by UYR from a St. Louis animal control. She was found abandoned by animal control in a field. It is clear she has been neglected for some time, as she came in with matted hair and had to be shaved, has some hair loss on her ears, paws, and tail, and is arthritic. She also has dental disease.

Despite her neglect, Annie is a very sweet, loving dog and gets along well with the small, resident dog of the house. She follows her foster mom everywhere and just wants to be loved.

Annie's first vet appointment is scheduled in almost two weeks, and hopefully she can put on some weight between now and then. She will definitely need bloodwork to see if she will be able to tolerate anesthesia for her dental and spay. Please stay tuned to learn more about sweet Annie!


To date we've spent $1427.97 on Annie IL's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1355.00 in donations.

Gizmo
Illinois
Gizmo IL

Meet Gizmo, a sweetheart of a Yorkie Mix boy who suffered a pelvic injury after being hit by a car. His owners declined to get him the treatment needed, so he was surrendered. Happily UYR was there to help. Gizmo is being fostered in Caseyville, IL and will be adopted only within 100 miles of his foster home in Illinois.

THANK YOU TO GIZMO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Loretta Kish

THANK YOU TO GIZMO'S FACEBOOK DONORS!

Carol Nelson, Peggy Buchanan, George Jones, Wendy D'Uva, Jennifer Dean, Suzan Robison, Robin Nyberg, Susana Collins, Jennifer Runk Fennan

1/1/21 Update: Gizmo is ready for adoption!! He was neutered on 12/14 and has now had his stitches removed, follow up appointment, and is feeling great!! His hip has mostly healed, and while he will still have some restrictions for a little while longer (no jumping on/off furniture, no tearing around on hard floors where he could slip and cause re-injury), he can go to his perfect forever home any time. He is a super sweet, loving, 2 year old, 12 pound terrier mix that is great with kids, other dogs, and probably even cats although I don't have any to test him with. Quarantine has left him with a little separation anxiety. He is happy to be playing out in the yard by himself, but if he thinks you're leaving without him he gives a high pitched yelp and scream that will hurt your ears! I have cameras in the house and he is not a fan of being left alone. But you do have to drag him in from outside, no matter if it's raining, freezing, or hot as heck. He was previously an outside dog, so he does not know when it's not good for him to be out anymore. For this reason, he will need an extremely securely fenced yard *NO EXCEPTIONS*. He would love a family that is home most of the time normally, not just during COVID because he really wants a lot of attention and love. He is up to date on vaccines, heartworm & flea/tick prevention He is also totally crate trained, and mostly housetrained, but needs to be watched in new environments so he doesnt mark at first. Dont miss out on adopting this lovable guy. Put in your application today!

12/14/20: Gizmo had his neuter today. All went fine and he is resting and doing good! Brett did notice a baby canine stuck behind his adult and just pulled it - no cost - so thats taken care of too. Hes sound asleep until I wake him a little while later for a snack and end of night potty.

11/20/20 update - Gizmo is feeling so much better now after being on crate rest, having all the nasty bugs removed, and being in a warm, clean environment. He wants to thank everyone for their support and donations to get his immediate medical care that he so desperately needed. We have consulted with a specialist who says that Gizmo would be better off remaining on crate rest for a couple of months to heal rather than attempting surgery since the broken hip is already set from the 2 weeks before UYR acquired him. They would have to re-break the hip in order to fix it and they think he would have a better chance at using the leg normally by healing on crate rest at this point. He is using his leg to walk slowing during potty breaks so that his muscles dont atrophy and as long as he continues to heal and progress, he can start having longer walks in a few weeks. It will take time and he definitely wants to play, but he will have to be patient for that to happen. Otherwise, his labs are normal and he is heartworm negative, which is a huge miracle considering he was an outside dog. The vets dont see any reason to delay neutering him, so his neuter is scheduled for December 14th, which will give him some more healing time first, and then his hip will also get rechecked at the neuter appointment. After his neuter, his hip will just need to finish healing and he will be ready for adoption. He is friendly towards every person, small dogs, and calm bigger dogs. He appears fully crate trained, as he has never had an accident in his crate. Since he is on crate rest, it is unknown if he is housetrained at this point.

Initial Bio 11/15/20 - Gizmo is a 2 year old, 12 pound little terrier mix that came into UYR two weeks after being hit by a car. The owners did not seek proper medical care and he has not seen by a vet since he was a puppy. Not only did he have to live with the pain after the car hit him, but he was also kept as an outside dog and was infested with fleas both when he was found after being hit, and when he was finally surrendered. This poor guy has been through it, but is still the sweetest dog ever. He currently does not walk on his right rear leg at all, but we are taking him to the vet to see if it was broken during the accident, if its nerve damage, or why he cannot bear weight. We are praying for a good outcome. He will also need to be vaccinated, neutered, heartworm tested, and treated for parasites. Other than his leg and flea issue, which he is already on medication for, he appears very healthy. He is friendly towards everyone he has met so far, and is friendly towards other calm dogs. Please consider a donation towards his medical bills towards his treatment so he can hurry into his forever home for the holidays!

Buck
Rhode Island
Buck

Meet Buck, a sweet 12 pound, 6 year old Yorkie boy being fostered in East Providence, RI. Due to COVID, no out of state adoptions will be considered.

THANK YOU TO BUCK'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Gail Minnich, Genesis Padilla, Wendy Henry. Pauline Leonard

UPDATE 1/2/21: Happy New Year from New England. Ive been to the Vet lady and shes starting me on some medication that will help me to feel less anxious and fearful. We also talked about how my Foster parents can help me feel less stress when they need to leave the house without me. I get very upset and bark when they have to leave; I do settle down and Im not destructive but I have happy tails when they return. Im not ready to be adopted yet, we are working on some things to help me feel secure.

I would do best in a quiet home with no children under 12. I need my person to be home most of the time, and be willing to follow through with showing me how to feel confident and secure. A fenced in yard is necessary and if you like to walk and hike, Im your man because its my favorite thing to do! At the end of the day, Ill snuggle next to you on the couch.

UPDATE BIO: 12/01/20. Look at this sweet face!!! After having some time to spend with Buck, we are now ready to find this baby his furever lap with lots of belly rubs to offer! Precious Buck is an adorable 6-yr-old, 10-12lb yorkie, who absolutely loves his people. He was raised by his surrendering mom and dad, along with 7 grandchildren through his 6yrs in their home.

What brought Buck to UYR was that this baby nipped at a 31/2yr old's hand that was reaching out to pat him while he was laying down. Whether this was due to fear or a startle reflex, and although his mom's heart was broken at the thought of surrendering , the family as a unit agreed it was best to try and place this baby into rescue so that a home that was free of "young children" might guarantee a better future for this sweet baby. Since Buck has no aggression or prior issues, and this could have been a normal response for a dog, we do feel that

Buck would do best in a home with no children under the age of 12. We would ideally love that his adopters are stay at home owners. We would also prefer his potential adopter have a fenced yard. Buck does get anxious when he realizes his person is about to leave him alone but he will calm down eventually. He does take an inexpensive medication to help with his anxiety and we are working on this and hope that his furever mom or dad will be willing to see that his time alone is minimal or that he is allowed to go on outings. This little boy deserves someone that will help him regain his self confidence and reassurance and will always be there for him. He is just 6yrs old and full of love to give for years! If you feel you can offer this doll baby a furever home, please fill out an application at www.uyr.us or contact foster mom at fortheloveofyorkies42@gmail.com.

Initial Bio 9/9/2020: Buck was surrendered to UYR because he nipped at a toddler who startled him when he was sleeping. Although Buck had been around children since a pup, the family felt it was in Buck's best interest to rehome him. It was a very difficult and heartbreaking decision for his mom, but Buck has always been an anxious boy and she has noticed his anxiety has increased and felt this was the best option for him. Buck is anxious/nervous, circles at times due to the turmoil. We will update with Bucks progress as we learn more about him and his needs. We have plenty of time and patience for this handsome boy.


To date we've spent $403.76 on Buck's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $330.00 in donations.

THANK YOU TO OLLIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Katie Smith, Wendy Henry, Sandra Wendt, Angie Cagle, Ellen Chokreff, Dawn Gowen, Wendy Henry, Barbara Burgess

Update 1/2/2021 Ollie saw a specialist for his sudden onset blindness; due to the length of time from the onset of blindness before coming to UYR and treatment while with us, Ollie’s vision has not improved. This little gentleman is like an “old soul”; he is very easy going, but don’t let that fool you. Ollie doesn’t have any problem navigating the house, yard or water bowl. Ollie has the cutest little strut when he’s happy...he’ll bounce around and give a little “ bark “ while trotting outside. He just loves sitting next to his person and just being a “ couch potato “.

Ollie would do best with someone that wants a quiet, loving companion, that will keep them company and welcome his sweet soft kisses.

Initial Bio 11/12/2020 Oliver is 11 years old and was recently noted to have sudden onset blindness. Suspected to be SARDS, (Sudden acquired retinal degeneration). Oliver will be having a specialist consult soon regarding the blindness. Oliver gets along with FMs pack and navigating his new surroundings well, enjoys being close to FD and being outside. Stay tuned for updates with Olivers progress.

Barney Rubble

Barney Rubble is an adorable 12year-old (estimated) 16 pound yorkie being fostered in Ashland City, TN.

Updated Bio 1/12/21:

Barney Rubble came from a Shelter that reached out to United Yorkie Rescue due to his multiple medical issues that need to be addressed. After being observed in his foster home for a week Foster mom became concerned because she couldnt get him to eat very much. Only a little bite here and there no matter what food she tried. He was drinking plenty of water but was urinating but not having bowel movements. He went to Vet as a day patient and had bloodwork drawn. His kidney values are elevated and due to his other medical needs he was referred to Blue Pearl to see an internal specialist. Barney Rubble has several bladder stones and we are hoping that is not causing an obstruction. He does have a cough and his heart is enlarged. His liver also may be enlarged. What has to be worked on first is his Kidney Values. Barney is now admitted into the hospital for fluid Therapy with antibiotics. They will recheck bloodwork each day to see if the values go down. If they do then we can work on other treatment for the other pending issues. Please send healing wishes for this sweetheart. If you are able to donate to his care please click the PayPal Button Underneath.

Initial Bio 1/5/2021: Barney Rubble came from a Shelter that reached out to United Yorkie Rescue due to his multiple medical issues that need to be addressed. He has arrived in his Foster Home today and so far Foster Mom has observed that he gets along with the other dogs, loves a dog bed, super sweet and has already made himself at home. His Vet visit is Thursday the 14th , stay tuned for more information about this Cutie Pie.

Dottie Belle
Tennessee
Dottie Belle

Dottie Belle is a 13 year old (estimated) Yorkie mix who weighs about 9lbs and is being fostered near Ashland City, TN.

THANK YOU TO DOTTIE BELLE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Yvette Vangeloff, Jayne Newell, Anonymous Facebook Donors, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Marianna Pazik in loving memory of Ann C. Pazik

Updated bio 12/22/20: Dottie had her stitches out of her eye that had to be removed today. She is doing good and we are sure she is more comfortable without that eye staying infected anymore. She has gained much needed weight so she is now a healthy 9 pounds. Dottie has been having some episodes at night where she wakes up and barks confused as to where she is. She is completely blind but can hear and smell well. The vet thinks she has Sundowner Syndrome (canine cognitive dysfunction) it can lead to confusion, restlessness, repetitive pacing, barking for no apparent reason, irritability, or neediness. We are now giving her melatonin at least 30 minutes before bed and she can have Trazodone one hour before bed. This has helped so much. Dottie will need a forever home that understands senior care and will love her unconditionally. She is a sweet girl who was saved from a kill shelter who enjoys her loving, her food , her warm bed and she even doesnt mind dressing up. If you are interested in adoption her please fill out an application for this sweet girl who has just a little bit of special needs but does need a person of her very own.

Updated Bio 12/3/20: Dottie Belle is doing so much better since she first came into rescue. She is eating well all on her own and has gained about 1-2 pounds. Her skin is looking better and her ear infections are just about healed up. She is has a bath with special shampoo and a supplement to help her skin continue to heal up. She is also on a supplement for her arthritis. Her left eye is still giving her trouble, she is having it removed on the 10th of December. Dottie isnt a cuddler, but she enjoys being petted. She needs a home with an understanding family who knows how to care for Senior dogs. She eats and sleeps most of the time but does like to roam around a bit outside when it isnt too cold. If you can please donate to her care and say a prayer that this sweetie gets a home of her very own soon. That is her Christmas Wish.

Updated Bio 11/9/20: Dottie Belle came into rescue last Tuesday. She was either dumped or found wondering the streets which landed her at a shelter in not very good condition. She was flea infested, severely matted, her eyes were matted shut and she was malnourished and extremely weak. The shelter reached out to Rescue and now she is in good hands on her way to recovery. Once cleaned up we noticed an infection in one of her eyes. Its there but is sunk in a bit. The vet said she was probably born with this condition and it ruptured at some point which has caused the infection she has. We will be treating her eye for a couple of weeks but we will will be scheduling the removal of her eye so it doesnt bother her anymore and it does not function anyhow. She does suffer from ear infections and will be treated for that the next couple of weeks also. She has no teeth and has suffered in the past from bad periodontal disease which has caused her bottom jaw to wither in. Foster mom has been working with her to find her food bowl and helping her eat till she gets the hang of it in her own. She is doing well at drinking her water. The good news is that her bloodwork came back good, she is heartworm negative and her fecal was negative. She has been spayed. Her heart sounds good and her body is ok, just needs to get her skin healthy and put a couple of pounds on her. She is now up to date on all shots and is on heartworm and flea prevention. She will be microchipped when she has her eye surgery. Dottie Belle is very sweet and does what most Senior dogs do. She adores her new soft big bed, loves to eat, enjoys her water and wants love and affection. Never underestimate how much love a senior dog can give when rescued. She needs a forever place to live the rest of her life in feeling loved, secure never having to wonder if she will be clean safe and fed. If you are interested in giving Dottie Belle that please email Foster mom with more questions.

Initial Bio 11/5/20: Dottie Belle came into Rescue this week. She came from a shelter in TN and she is in pretty bad shape at the moment. She is weak and super skinny. She has no teeth and her bottom jaw has withered in, she needs help eating her soft food and she loves it so much. No telling how much food she had to eat before she ended up in the shelter. One of eyes crusts over and is sunk in a bit and her other eye is cloudy. She has her Vet appointment Monday and we will find out what all is going on with this sweetie and she can enjoy a new life being cared for and loved. If you would like to donate to the care she needs please click the PayPal button underneath, we couldnt save all these abandoned babies without your help.

Updated Bio 1/06/21

Paris had her Dogtors appointment this afternoon and she is now up to date on her yearly shots and has tested Heartworm and Fecal negative which is very good news. As you can see from her picture she has severe cataracts in both eyes, one of her eyes has a slipped lense. She is being referred to they eye Dogtor to see what may need to be done to help this as it can cause Glaucoma. Her Bloodwork came back all good but she does have a Kidney Infection which is being treated with an Antibiotic. The Dogtor heard a Heart Murmur and she will need An Echo to see what grade and if any issues before proceeding with her much needed dental. Paris has now been in her Foster Home now for three weeks and she is eating and sleeping well. She gets along with other dogs but due to her sight issues she doesnt like a hyper dog getting in her space it scares her. She enjoys being held and loved on. She sleeps on a pillow by Foster mom at night. Paris likes to explore around the front fenced in yard. She rides great in a car. Paris is potty trained but will have accidents if not taking out on a regular basis. She would do great with a family who is home most or all the time. She would also be a great dog to travel with. Due to her small size no children under 12 and will need to be watched around small children visiting. She can be snippy when startled and when she is being bathed and groomed. Could be because of her sight issues or just cause she is older and grumpy and doesnt like to do what she doesnt want lol! She doesnt mind wearing clothes and she loves lazing around in a doggie bed during the day. If you are interested in this sweetheart please fill out an application or email foster mom with more questions.

Meet Baxter, an adorable 10 year old, 13 pound Yorkie boy being fostered in Liberty Hill, TX. Due to COVID concerns, only Texas applicants will be considered.

THANK YOU TO NICKY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Lynne Turner

INITIAL BIO. 12/08/20. Howdy! My name is Baxter. Nice to meet you! I had been residing in a shelter in North Texas, where I was taken as I was roaming the streets. No one has come to get me though, so the nice folks at UYR took me in! My foster mom just got me groomed and oh my gosh do I feel and look better! Like, is there a Tinder for dogs? (Oh, won't need that as they're getting me neutered next week anyway....oh well). My foster mom said she'll know more about how house trained I am after that...I will say I have not done #2 in the house! I even asked to go outside last night.

One fun fact about me is that I have no teeth. I think it makes me pretty special (hello, cute tongue hanging out)! My foster mom found a nice thick pate she cuts up that I can eat just fine! I need to gain some weight so that's perfect for me (I'm about 11 lbs right now...and gaining!). I get along great with other dogs....my foster family has 2 small and 2 big ones; I like 'em all! Cats? Not so much. I like their human kids, though! They give me belly rubs a lot....that's a favorite. I do sleep all night in a little bed they got me that is next to their bed.

As far as my age....well, I am not sure! The dogtor says I am "middle aged". My foster mom is too, and she said that's a pretty good age to be. If you think you may be the right furever home for me, you can reach out to my foster mom at rescuesreallyrock@gmail.com. Thanks!

UPDATE 11-2-20: After nearly a month in the cone of shame, Bosco's nasty infection finally healed and he's been enjoying the cone-free life. He's learning to play with other dogs, and absolutely loves going for long walks and exploring the neighborhood. But he also loves bedtime snuggles and playing tug of war with his squeaky toys.

On Monday he saw an eye specialist who said he's a good candidate for cataract surgery in his remaining eye. He currently can sense light and dark but otherwise has no vision. Since he's still so active, the surgery would significantly improve his quality of life. Although he's adapted well to having no vision, he still occasionally bumps into things on his walks--especially if he's excited and trying to catch a squirrel.

UPDATE BIO: 07/29/20. Precious Boscoe came into rescue after living a life that no baby should have lived. He was attacked by a larger dog, suffered a horrific eye injury which left his eye paralyzed, and he lost all of his lower jaw, all without medical care. Not only did he endure this a few years ago, he was also left behind with one bowl of food after his owners up and moved. Coming into United Yorkie Rescue, Bosco is now in a quiet safe loving home where food is never a worry, dogs will not attack him, and there are plenty of belly rubs full of love to enjoy.

Last week Bosco underwent surgery and we removed his sightless damaged and weepy eye. This past weekend he started with an infection around his sutures which we have added additional antibiotics to, and are now running cultures to stay ahead of this. This is not uncommon with an eye that was already compromised with infections needing 4 medications, 4 times a day. Bosco is also learning how to navigate with the cone, but he still cannot figure out how to burrow under his blanket without a little help from his foster momma. While Bosco heals from this enucleation of his right eye, we will soon address Bosco's remaining eye. He has a cataract in his remaining good eye;and has been told he is a candidate for the correction. He has adapted very well with his limited vision. He may need someone to keep an eye out for him at the top of stairs and around open water, otherwise he acts very sighted. We pray that his future will hold hope for cataract surgery and will become a reality. In the meantime, this brave little boy is not letting life's little problems stop him from continuing to enjoy this new found life.

Bosco is such a gentle soul who just wants only to be close to his human. He's happy to snooze on the couch if you're nearby, especially if he can get scratches behind his ears or on his belly. He especially likes to snuggle up with his foster mom at bedtime. He also loves going for walks and meeting other dogs, and playing with his squeaky stuffed elephant toy. What's not to love about him! If you feel you have the perfect home and heart for Bosco, please email foster mom at uyr.atx@gmail.com and fill out an application at www.uyr.us. Donations for Bosco can also be made on our website at www.uyr.us. Thank you!!

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.

12/31/20: Meet this little angel tripod Chloe. Chloe is a 3 1/2yr old, 10lb baby girl who is now a courtesy listing. Here is her sad little story. In Chloes short life she was originally brought into a shelter where her leg was heavily infected and needed amputation. There was no one who would give how or why for her injury. Chloes journey took her to a home where we were told she lived with a couple with young children. The woman took her to the shelter stating she could no longer afford her care and she was nipping at a neighbors child. It was later disclosed that the woman was going through a divorce with an abusive husband and the chaos in the home was too much for her. Chloe had started to exhibit anxiety in the home and the 3 yrs started to take its effect on her mental wellbeing. The shelter reached out to UYR for their assistance as they knew she needed an expertise with her needs. In UYR foster care and in a home with no other children, Chloe thrived. She loved her walks, playing with her ball and toys and loved snuggling and getting belly rubs. We knew she was cautious of strangers, and people had to be introduced slowly to her. We knew she needed a home with someone that could take Chloe for walks, keep her active, a quiet home without children. We knew she needed continued one-on-one training to secure her self-confidence. We knew she was smart who loves rewards and we found her that home but sadly her owner had surgery and Chloes life now has turned upside down. She was confused with a walker and a cane and she started nipping at the other dogs. Having another helper in the owner's home also confused her and she's not sure where her place is so she's reactive with both owner and helper aft times. With tears in her eyes and on her heart, her owner knows her home is not where this baby girl needs to be and reached out to UYR so we can find her final forever. I am looking for a home with no children and no dogs. I am looking for someone who is active because this little tripod can outrun and out jump any four legged baby!! I am keeping her previous bios below this post so you can see what this little girls potential truly is. Please email me at yorkieforstertx@gmail.com if you have that home! Chloe is young, she has so much love to give to someone who can take the time and patience to let Chloe come into herself along with you!

Crystal is a very sweet 10 year old, 18 pound Yorkie girl being fostered in Fort Worth, TX. DUE TO COVID-19, NO OUT OF STATE ADOPTIONS WILL BE CONSIDERED.

THANK YOU TO CRYSTAL'S RESCUE ANGELS!

UPDATE BIO: 01/13.21. On February 2nd, Crystal will have been in rescue for 2 years. She came from a horrific puppy mill and endured such a horrible life until that day. Today, Crystal still is very frightened of loud noises or any voices that are raised. She will run immediately to the closet where her safe room awaits. She will also stiffen and cower when a hand is reached to her for love. Somethings like this may take years to overcome. She is very loving. Once she feels the touch she will keep moving in for more loves. Crystal will also come to my desk and ask to be on the couch with me and snuggle up behind me. She also sleeps on the bed with her humans and her other fur siblings at bedtime. When I bring a new foster into the home, Crystal is the first to run and jump with excitement! You can tell she was truly an amazing mommy back in her days as she just loves all the babies.Emotionally, she is still very reserved but has much love to show and give. She gets excited for meals, when she gets up in the morning she greets every baby on the floor as they come off the bed like her. She loves to roll in the grass and will want to stay outside to enjoy the sunshine on a cold day where the sun is warming the ground. God love her!

Medically, Crystal is doing well. She is currently on inexpensive Thyroid and reflux inexpensive meds. Crystal also receives a cytopoint shot once every 2 months or so for itching. She has a revisit with the vet next week for a skin scraping as Crystal has recurring skin infections due to her horrible conditions she endured for years while in captivity in the mill. Crystal also has dry eyes and has lost most of the sight in her right eye. It does not affect her in any way other than when you reach out for loves, you should move slowly on her left side. Other than that, Crystal has gone through many surgical procedures and intensive medical illnesses and has recovered remarkably.

If you feel you have the home to give this sweet girl knowing emotional healing still needs to come, please reach out to me directly at yorkiefostertx@gmail.com.

UPDATE BIO: 09/13/20.

As you can see, sweet Crystal has been with me for almost 2 years! Having come from the puppy mill that we shut down in the Valley View Area of Texas in early 2019, this little lady has had her share of issues. This is pretty typical of mill babies since their care is non-existent, but also their lifestyle, lack of love and attention, and living conditions also traumatize these angels.

Medically, as you see, we have spent over $12K on this baby girl. Crystal had life saving pyometra surgery within 30 minutes after we left the hell hole. Unbeknown to us, she had a deadly skin infection that invaded her surgical site and she was taken into critical care due to her MRSP. She required addl surgery to clean the surgical site and remove the infection that was trapped inside. Within the next few months she was back in surgery to have both sides of her mammary chains removed due to carcinoma found in one of her MANY mammary tumors. Of course we had a mouthful of infection, infected ears, and eyes that were oozing of green pus due to her living conditions and untreated dry eyes to care for as well. Currently, Crystal only takes thyroid medication and an antacid for her reflux.

Emotionally, Crystal has jumped through hoops to get where she is today. This baby still cowers when you go to touch and she tries to run. If you verbally correct any other dog, she is the first to run for cover and hide. Now she LOVES to be placed by you and get belly rubs and get her hair brushed, and she loves to sleep on the bed. She loves treats and she loves her food. She loves to sit outside and roll in the grass. If you want to see the true love of this puppy mill baby, it's when I bring in another tiny rescue! This is like her having her first Christmas, as she absolutely loves the babies!!

Today, Crystal is doing well. Once again we were in surgery to remove her spleen due to a large mass that had grown inside. We had just finished another round of special antibiotics as she was positive for the MRSP again on her skin. She looks absolutely beautiful again!

Will Crystal ever find her furever home?? I don't know. Life with Crystal would be one where you can have a baby by you and cuddle with you on the couch or in bed. She doesn't have many wants at all. She never asks for anything and is a very quiet little girl. She does NOT like storms. She loves to sit in the sun and roll and rub her back in the grass. She LOVES her baths. She loves to be brushed. She is not a tiny girl so you do not have to worry about her with other dogs. She does not jump on furniture and she will stay where she is put. She loves all animals and is fine around children. For the most part Crystal is housebroken but her housetraining is still ongoing. She is a beautiful gentle soul and for all intensive purposes, she is happy and healthy. If you feel you may have the perfect home for this angel or if you would like additional information regarding Crystal, please email foster mom at yorkiefostertx@gmail.com.

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.

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.

Teddy B
Texas
Teddy B (aka CHIP)

Teddy B is a precious 7 year old, 9 pound Yorkie boy being fostered in Midlothian, TX. Due to COVID concerns, only Texas applicants will be considered.

THANK YOU TO TEDDY B'S (NEE CHIP) RESCUE ANGELS!

Emily Wolfe, Sandy Pagnotta, Lindsey Placek, Lauren Lowery, Karen McKeand, Pam Roberts

Initial Bio 12/17/20: Teddy B is approximately 7 years old and about 10 pounds. He recently came to us from the Valley where he was found as a stray, then adopted, but ultimately returned to the shelter after some medical issues. Our sweet Teddy B has cardio megaly, which is an enlarged heart. He's being treated for some fluid due to total neglect. He has a cough, but we suspect that to dissipate. His bloodwork is absolutely perfect, so the vets feel this maybe congenital and he will have many years to give his owner. We also feel this baby was a breeder due to his love of the crate. He is the sweetest boy and likely had a home once upon a time. As I said, Teddy knows exactly what a crate is and that he is to eat in there, his choice. He will curl up next to us on the couch, but if we get up or leave the room we almost always come back to find him in his crate- his safe space- with his blanket. We initially tried to let him sleep in bed with us, but after finding him cowering in the corner by the door, we quickly realized that for now hes most comfortable in his crate and thats okay. A potential adopter will need to have a crate and be comfortable with using it until he feels comfortable without it. I've never heard him bark and he startles when making sudden movements. He wants to be your shadow and stay close for snuggles. He doesnt steal food from the other dogs bowls even when its left out and knows not to beg for food while we are eating- even when my 1 year old drops it on the floor for the dogs lol. Right now he is wearing a belly band, which he is using likely out of fear or anxiety and because of his meds for his heart. Teddy can at times be a very nervous boy, which makes us sad to think of what environment hes previously experienced, but we know that he deserves the very best forever home which can help him through all the normalcies of a lovingl life. He would likely benefit from a home in which someone is around most of the day. Feel free to email us for questions at uyrfoster23@gmail.com.

Mr. McGee

Mr McGee is a 5 year old (estimated) Yorkie boy who weighs 8 pounds and is being fostered near Stafford, VA

Due to a Covid 19 dogs in Virginia can only be adopted in Virginia.

THANK YOU TO MR. MCGEE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Irene and Peter Havas in memory of darling Happy, Rene Anderson

Updated Bio 11/15/20: Mr. McGees records show hes 3 years old however, at his most recent vet appointment they thought he was approximately 5-7 years old given the progression of his eye disease. He is being fostered in Stafford VA and is a happy go lucky little guy who just wants to be loved. Prior to being pulled from a shelter he was severely matted but got a haircut that brought out his beautiful brown eyes. Mr. McGee has an eye disease called Pigmentary Keratitis that has caused him to go partially blind and have chronic inflammation and have eye pain. He will requires 3 daily eye medications for the rest of life to slow down the progression of this disease and to lessen his eye pain and irritation. The monthly cost of these medications are $174. He was treated for Lyme disease and will need a dental soon. He loves to go outside and explore, he doesnt mind other small animals as long as they dont invade his space as he doesn't see well and gets frightened easily. He is being fed in a separate room as he is food aggressive. He would do well in a home where he doesn't have to go up and down stairs as he stumbles often. Mr. McGee would not be good in a home with small children or large dogs. He sleeps in a dog bed next to his foster moms bed and is being trained to use a pee pad. The perfect home for Mr. McGee would be one where his humans are patient and have a lot of time and energy to devote to him. He detests being crated so we feel this is not a good option for him unless it is for very short periods of time. Mr. McGee needs to catch up on learning the skills that most young dogs learn as puppies like house-training and leash walking. A fenced yard would be a must due to his limited eye sight. His favorite thing to do is go for a car ride.

Initial Bio 9-2-20: My name is Mr. McGee and Im a happy go lucky little guy. Prior to being pulled from the shelter I was severely matted, got a really nice haircut, and thought a family was going to adopt me but then changed their minds. My foster mom took me to the dogtor and we learned I am between 5-7 years old, I have an eye disease called Pigmentary Keratitis that has caused me to partially go blind and have chronic inflammation if not treated. The dogtor explained that I will require daily eye drops for life to slow down the progression. Right now I can only see shadows and would love to keep the eye sight that I have. I also have Lyme disease that my foster mom is treating me for. The dogtor says I need a dental but should wait 2 months considering I was just neutered and am on 3 medications for Lyme Disease and Pigmentary Keratitis. I love to go outside and explore, I get along with the other small dogs and cats in the house as long as they dont get close to me when I have food or a bone. Im afraid of long stair cases since I cant see very well, Im not fond of small children, I sleep on the floor in my foster moms bedroom, and Im learning to use the pee pads. My foster mom and dogtor say Im under weight but they feed me really good food. Im not a lap dog but everyone thinks Im super cute and loving.
