Update 12/17/18

Things are really looking up for sweet little Scrappy! When he came to us he was in really bad shape. He had a huge hernia that was making it almost impossible for him to go potty so we got his surgery scheduled asap. It was so large that the Veterinarian wants to wait until after the new year for Scrappy to be adopted just to make sure that everything "holds" well and we have a 100% fix. All is going well so far. Scrappy also had really bad teeth and had an oral nasal fistula from years of chronic infection. This had to be surgically closed and Scrappy lost all of his remaining teeth. As a consequence, he developed a second nasal fistula that needs follow up care to ensure it heals properly. If not, this will also require surgical closure. The good news is that Scrappy is so very happy now that he is no longer sick and languishing in the shelter. He is such a sweet boy and loves his foster mom and sister and his foster fur-brother. Stay tuned for updates as his saga continues. We hope he will be able to accept applications early in 2019. If you are able to help us with Scrappy's care, please click the PayPal button below and THANK YOU!

Initial Bio 11-11-18 A very rural shelter in KY with very few resources reached out to us to help sweet Scrappy. The shelter was full and Scrappy had been there since August and his time was about to be up. He was an owner surrender and had severe fleas, practically no hair, intestinal parasites, infected ears and was not neutered. A volunteer foster from the shelter paid for most of the medical care Scrappy received since August themselves but could not get adequate exposure to get Scrappy adopted. So we put a transport together and now Scrappy is a Bama Boy! So far he is very sweet, happy, good with other pets and humans. Stay tuned for updates as we get to know him better!


To date we've spent $925.02 on Scrappy's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $170.00 in donations.

Willie
Arkansas
Willie

Willie is a tiny 3.8 pound Yorkie boy who is estimated to be 8 years old. He is being fostered in Bryant, AR.

THANK YOU TO WILLIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Irene and Peter Havas, Trula Montgomery, Connie Albers

Updated Bio 01/05/2019

Adorable Willie is all dressed up in his Tuxedo to wish all UYR followers EVERYWHERE a VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR! Willie has been in his foster home since Thanksgiving and is doing very well. He has really enjoyed spending the holidays in a place where he has lots of love, yummy food, treats and lots of attention! Sadly that hasn’t always been the case for him. Not so long ago, tiny Willie was abandoned by his owner at a Veterinarian’s office. When no one came to pick him up, the office notified animal control, and sadly Willie was off to the shelter. But Willie’s story does not end there……Santa knew Willie had been a good boy and he deserved a special Christmas like ALL GOOD Boys do! Willie was not destined to languish in the shelter for long because UYR got alerted by Santa and soon the UYR elves were packing up their sleigh to get Willie on a transport with to his foster home. Willie had lived a life of obvious neglect because he was in rough shape with matting, very long nails, bad skin and other signs of neglect when he came to us. But a little TLC goes a very long way and JUST LOOK AT HIM SHINE TODAY!!!! Willie does have early onset cataracts but his eye exam indicates that his vision is not compromised at all and he gets around like a champ! Willie came to us with only 2 teeth. He just had his dental and now he has exactly ZERO teeth left because these were badly decayed. But a little warm water on his kibble to soften it and he is able to eat just fine. Willie was also neutered and micro-chipped with his dental procedure so now this sweet boy is all set and ready to find his PAWFECT FUREVER HOME! Willie is outgoing, curious, and in typical tiny Yorkie style he is NOT AFRAID OF ANYTHING! Willie will “ask” for attention and to be picked up by barking. He likes to sit in your lap but his favorite “cuddle” position is to be nestled close under your arm right by your side. Willie likes to play and explore but he is not much a fan of toys. He generally is not super interested in the other dogs in his foster home though he has tried to make a “love connection” with one of his foster siblings but we hope that his recent neutering will curtail this behavior LOL! Due to his status as a toothless dog, he will need have his kibble softened with warm water or eat soft food and treats for the rest of his life. Willie is NOT a fan of being left alone or in a crate. He would do well in a home with a work-from-home adopter, a retiree, or someone who could take him to work with then. He will follow you everywhere like a tiny furry shadow. Willie is a very smart little fellow, but he can be stubborn. He was not house-trained when he came to UYR but he is making progress and marking less but he needs a patient adopter who will help him continue to progress. He is so smart, he should be easy to get to where he needs to be fairly easily. Willie might enjoy another dog of similar age, size and energy to be pals with but that is not essential for a stay-at-home adopter and he likely also do well as an only dog. Due to his very tiny size Willie must go to an adults only home, no exceptions. Willie is ready to find his person so if you fit the bill please apply to adopt him today!

Update 12/4/18: Willie comes to UYR along with buddy Waylon. These tiny boys were abandoned at a Veterinarian’s office. When no one came for them, the office notified animal control, and these two adorable tiny boys were off to the shelter. We initially thought these two were very bonded but after two weeks in their foster home we have discovered that isn’t the case so we are removing their bonded pair status and will consider separate adoptions.

Willie was in rough shape with matting, very long nails, bad skin and other signs of neglect when he came to us. He has early onset cataracts but his exam revealed that his vision is not compromised at all and he gets around like a champ! He has only 2 teeth and these are in bad shape and will likely need to be removed when he has his dental.

Willie is a very smart boy and is a seeker and explorer. When he is done, he will come to the couch and ask up and has started laying in foster Mom’s lap recently. Willie is a tiny boy so tiny rules apply: No children under age 14, small dog siblings only, etc. Willy is not house-trained so a patient adopter with lots of time to help him learn is a must. He is scheduled for neuter and dental in early January so stay tuned for updates! Willie’s veterinary expenses will run about $1000 so any donations towards his care would be much appreciated.

Initial Bio 11/27/18

Willie and Waylon were abandoned at a Veterinarian’s office. When no one came for them, the office notified animal control, and these two adorable tiny boys were off to the shelter. That’s very sad......But brighter days are most definitely in store for these guys because Santa knew they were VERY GOOD BOYS so he summoned his team of dedicated UYR elves who hitched up the reindeer and put a transport together to whisk them off to safety. Freshly groomed and in their holiday ribbons we think these two boys are just adorable!

Willy and Waylon came to us badly in need of a grooming with matting, very long nails, thinning hair, dry skin and smelling pretty terrible. Neither has been neutered and both are badly in need of a dental. Both of them have asymptomatic luxating patellas, however neither is experiencing pain or gait problems and therefore corrective surgery is not indicated at this time. Both pups had full lab work done and all came back completely PAWFECT. Most of their health issues are minor and most likely the result of poor nutrition and grooming neglect.

More about Waylon. The shelter Vet noticed a mass near Waylon’s groin and we were worried until his Vet visit today revealed it is just an undescended testicle which will be addressed when he is neutered. Waylon also has significant dental tartar and decay and needs a full dental cleaning with likely extractions. Waylon is a Velcro boy and always wants to be in a lap. He is always asking to be picked up. He loves giving kisses and is very submissive.

More about Willie. Willie has early onset cataracts but his exam revealed that his vision is not significantly compromised. He reacts very well to movement, and his pupils respond really well and does not act vision impaired at all. Willie is believed to be 1-2 years older than Waylon. He has only 2 teeth and these are in bad shape and will likely need to be removed.

Unlike Waylon who wants to live in your lap, Willie is a seeker and explorer. When he is done, he will come to the couch and ask up, but he lays beside you, vs. in your lap and he too gives sweet but sparing kisses compared to Waylon.

Willie and Waylon are bonded and we would love for them to be adopted together. Also please note that these guys are too tiny for children so homes with children under the age of 14 will not be considered, no exceptions. Neither dog is house-trained so a patient adopter with lots of time to help them learn this behavior is a must. We hope it will be easier to train them once they are neutered. Both are scheduled for neuter and dentals in early January so stay tuned for updates!

Willie and Waylon would appreciate any donations toward their Vet bills so if you can help please click the PayPal button below and Thank You!

Brandy
California
Brandy

Brandy is a beautiful 4-year-old, 7 pound, little Yorkie girl being fostered in Southern California. Only candidates living in California will be considered for adoption.

THANK YOU TO BRANDY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Rodney and Robin Slagle

6/04/18. UPDATE BIO. Brandy continues to do well and make slow but steady improvements. This month she seems to have turned the corner with my husband Alex. She hasn’t wanted to have anything to do with him, but now she happily jumps on his lap and has even given him a few kisses on his nose. Before she would only kiss his hand. She continues to hoard the toys she likes and has begun guarding them all day long. She makes sure to take one of her “dollies” each time we walk and makes it the entire way with her “dolly” hanging out of her mouth. The neighbors think she’s just darling.

We continue to work with her on nipping, but she gets overly excited easily and will lash out at me when I touch her in a way she doesn’t like. A good example of this is when I attempt to clean her eyes and face each morning. She doesn’t like anyone touching her face and does growl and then try to nip when she doesn’t like the way she’s being touched or handled. In addition, she remains very fearful of meeting new people and will immediately nip if they try to touch her. The only way to get her to interact with an unfamiliar person is to give them treats. She’s very motivated by food and will take a treat from a stranger as long as they don’t try to touch her. For the past few weeks, I’ve been taking her with me to the store or to run errands, so she can experience new people and places, but I have to be careful not to allow anyone to touch her. I hope we’ll make some good progress on this front over the next month or so.

Brandy two favorite activities are going for walks and eating!!

03/20/18. Update Bio. Brandy came to UYR as an owner surrender that suddenly became intolerant and aggressive toward the other dog in her household after four years of peaceful coexistence. In addition, she became overly possessive of her owner and began nipping at others that came into her vicinity. Brandy has been medically evaluated and is in perfect health. In addition, she has been seen and evaluated by a reputable trainer and was placed on Prozac to help control her aggression, but the medication had no positive impact on the situation. Concerned for the safety of both of their dogs, Brandy’s owners found themselves with no other option than to seek the assistance of UYR.

Brandy has been a member of our family for the past six weeks. She has been weened completely off of medication, has been placed on a healthy, raw, grain free diet. Ironically, Brandy was immediately accepted into my little pack of three the day she arrived. We have had no major incidences of aggression between Brandy and any of our 3 Yorkies (with some minor pack corrections that are teaching her manners, none that have involved overly physical contact). In fact, they seem to like her, and regularly attempt to seek her out to play. Although Brandy tolerates the pack, she isn’t eager to engage with them just yet. She prefers the one-on-one attention of humans and has fallen in love with both my husband and myself. She is a sweet little lap dog that likes nothing more than cuddling, wrapped in a blanket and having her neck, ears and belly rubbed. She loves being brushed too and will sit on the floor next to my feet to wait for her turn. So adorable.

As her foster mom, and a person with several years of experience living and working with “Quirky Yorkies.” I think Brandy is a Fantastic little one and very typical of many of the more “Colorful” Yorkies. Brandy is a very loving, intelligent and complex little one that needs to be challenged and loves learning. She is super fun, and very spunky and so incredibly ADORABLE! She has a very high level of intensity in everything she does and absolutely needs lots and lots of exercise, attention and a new Mom & Dad that can respect and appreciate her for who she is. One of the things I love about Brandy is her strong desire to communicate her needs, albeit the way she has gone about it in the past has been understandably misinterpreted. For example, if she’s enjoying getting her ears scratched and you suddenly stop, she will grab your hand with her mouth gently because she wants more. I’ve been working with her to kiss rather than grab my hand and she is catching on quickly. If you rough her up or hold her too tightly she gets upset and will grab your hand as if to say, “Don’t do that to me!” If you grab her leash and walk to the door, she’ll nip your toes because she can’t wait to go outside. She’s learning how to kiss instead. Like most Yorkies – Brandy LOVES going for long mountain walks …. 1-mile twice per day. She also has a habit of growling in a fairly intimidating way if anyone or the dogs go near her when she’s in her bed or has a toy. Of course, this is normal, but in Brandy’s case it was overly intense. She’s doing this less and less as she begins to feel safer and becomes more accustomed to our family and the rules of our pack which include respecting others and their space.

Brandy also has a tendency to get overly excited which is usually the precursor to negative behavior. She is learning how to channel her excess energy into chewing bones, playing fetch, and tug-of-war. She is also learning how to have better manners with other dogs. Each evening I watch as my pack engages her or ignores her depending on how she is acting, and which cues she’s sending out. She is very smart and seems to be enjoying learning the ways and rules of the pack with little intervention from me – she seems to feel accomplished and I’m very proud of her.

Brandy also has rather strong obsessive/compulsive tendencies and (like many Yorkies) wants whatever another dog has. In Brandy’s case, she doesn’t want to play with another dog, she wants to steal the toy and hide it. She’s definitely a major hoarder. In the beginning she would sit and whine for a long, long, long time if she wanted something. Since she has learned that this just isn’t the way to get what she wants, and she rarely does this now. Brandy also knows when she needs quiet time and will sometimes retreat to her bed just to relax. To her credit, Brandy is perfectly housetrained and is terrific at letting us know when she has to go out to her little patch of grass on the deck.

In the beginning Brandy was aloof and didn’t really seem to like or trust people very much. She seemed uncertain of human interaction and wasn’t a big fan of being held or carried around and would growl. We got the sense she really just wanted to be left alone, like she was just plain fed-up humans, which we could totally understand based on the chaos this entire family had endured during their final months together. We believe that Brandy was very confused and disoriented because she just couldn’t figure things out, or what people wanted from her. She just wanted to go to her bed or retreat and “check-out.” The unpredictability of life also resulted in her lack of confidence, fear, and caused her to growl and/or lash out.

Brandy is a UNIQUE Yorkie that has definite streaks of unpredictability which (we believe) may stem from a combination of her possible in-breeding, past life experiences and genuine nature. It has taken time, good judgement, love, limits, and the ability to properly evaluate her state of mind at any given time and lots and lots and lots of positive reinforcement to develop a good, strong, loving relationship with Brandy. I’m confident that it will take her new owner(s) a good deal of BREED SPECIFIC KNOWLEDGE, time, effort, patience, love, kindness and respect and work to develop a loving relationship with Brandy.

Brandy is a Special UYR Yorkie with Unique Needs.

Brandy’s Specific Requirements – Please Read Carefully – In addition to UYR’s high-standards for potential adopters, the following additional conditions are specific to Brandy.

You must have demonstrated experience with the Yorkie Breed, and an understanding, experience and a passion for intensified breed characteristics and knowledge of how to properly correct with positive reinforcement and loving limits.

Brandy will not be adopted into a household with children or regularly visiting grandchildren under 16 years of age. A retired, yet active couple or single person that is home most of the time is highly preferable.

You must commit to having a “one-Yorkie” home FurEver. If you plan to have a mult-pet household at some future date, or if you currently have another pet, please do not apply to adopt Brandy. UYR will reserve the right to retrieve her should this commitment be broken.

Applicants for Brandy must live in Orange or San Diego Counties Only.

We’d like Brandy to be adopted by a Yorkie-Breed Enthusiast. We’d love to find her new FurParents that will take her to obedience, training and agility classes to establish and solidify a strong, life-long bond with Brandy.

Initial Bio 2/12/18: Hello – My name is Brandy! I’m 4.5 Years Old and 7lbs of Pure Moxie! I’m a Little California Beauty Queen, and I know it!! I love cuddling in my bed, going for long mountain walks and playing with squeak toys! I just arrived on Saturday 2/10 and I’m just getting to know my Foster Family.

Georgie

Georgie and Sport
California
Georgie (and Sport)

Georgie is a 1.5 year of. 4.5 pound Malti-Poo. He is one half of a bonded pair and comes to UYR with his furry best friend Sport, a 2 year old, 8 pound Morkie. Both pups are being fostered in Fremont, CA and must be adopted together. Because both are fearful of men, they must be adopted into a female only household. NO OUT OF STATE APPLICATIONS WILL BE CONSIDERED.

THANK YOU TO GEORGIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Carol Nelson, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Carol Nelson, Sandra Wendt, Brigitte Saylor, Holly Stavis

UPDATE BIO: 01/19/19. Georgie continues be an adorable little Morkie. He loves affection, and seeks it out. He wonders why him and his best buddy, Sport, have not found their forever home. They are both happy little boys, but would be happier with their very own mommy. They must go to a female only home.

UPDATE BIO. 09/11/18. Georgie has completely recovered from his knee surgery. He is a very sweet little man, and has really warmed up to foster Mom. His best friend is truly Sport. Georgie loves his Sport. He can be a little shy around strangers, and I have noticed he can act a little nervous when I go to pick him up.

Unfortunately, I do feel there was some abuse in these boys past. He gets along with other dogs, and is nicely crate trained. The ideal home for these two would be with females only, as his buddy Sport seems to be very afraid of men. These two enjoy their yard, so a small yard would be perfect for them. They are trained to use a doggie door. Because of Georgie’s small size, no children under 9.

UPDATE BIO> 06/27/18. Georgie is doing great after his surgery. I have released him completely from bed rest, and leash restraint. I also let him run freely around the house, as the boys are very nicely house trained. Georgie will still lift his leg at times when running, but the vet believes this is just an old habit, as his knee is very much in the correct place.

The boys are a joy to have around, and someone will be a very lucky person to be selected to be their forever!

UPDATE BIO 05/22/18: Georgie had his knee surgery, and is doing very well with it. Foster mom has not completely released him from bed rest, as he is a very active little guy, who loves to frolic, jump, and play with his buddy, Sport.

Georgie's vet said he could be released, but Foster Mom is taking every precaution, and being very conservative with him. She restrains him on a leash, to prevent him from performing any jumps or leaps. Georgie and Sport are so much to watch, they are quite entertaining.

Update Bio. 04/06/2018. Poor little Georgi! Such a sweet boy who loves to play, play, and play more. Foster Mom loves to watch him but was distraught when she noticed he held his right rear leg up when running. An appointment at the vet verified the suspicion, he has a severe luxating patella issue, and needs surgery. He also has an issue with the left rear leg, but not severe. We have scheduled his surgery, which will be in 2 weeks. He also needs a dental, which hopefully can be done at the same time. His playing will have to be restricted for at least 8 weeks, if not more. Not an easy thing to do, because this boy loves to play.

All this will be very expensive. But we want a bright, happy, healthy future for this adorable little boy. If you could help us pay for Georgi’s surgery, it would be greatly appreciated. We also would love your prayers and positive thoughts that all goes well for him through his surgery and recovery.

Initial Bio 3/24/18: This duo of young, adorable best pals have had a rough year so far. First, their owner was a victim of the fires that plagued the San Diego area. Displaced from their home, they were given to a friend for safe keeping until the owner could recover. That proved more challenging than anticipated and the original owner found that they were unable to come for them. The friend was given ownership with the intent of finding them a good home but is a widow with limited resources who after much heart ache reluctantly decided that UYR could give this precious pair the best start possible to a PAWFECT new life. These two pups are healthy, sweet as can be and are going to make some lucky adopter very happy! Stay tuned for updates as they have just reached their foster home.

Lily
California
Lily CA

Meet Lily. She is a 7-8 year-old yorkie mix who weighs about 20 lbs and is being fostered in CA.

Update 11-20-18: Lily has been with us for about 6 weeks now and it has been a very smooth adjustment. She has blossomed. Lily is the sweetest most affectionate dog. She is well behaved, loves going for walks and she and my malti-poo have fun playing together. We had our vet visit and she is now up to date on vaccinations and she seems to be healthy. The vet thinks she's more like 7 or 8 years old rather than 4-5. Even though she's lost a little weight, due to her 'mix' she will never be tiny. She is camera shy so getting a good picture where her adorable face and big brown eyes can be seen has been difficult. But we'll keep trying. She is too adorable to not have a full-face photo.

INITIAL BIO. 10/03/18. I'm Lily. I'm a darling yorkie mix about 4-5 years old. I think I weigh about 20 lbs or more because foster mom has trouble lifting me. She's adjusted my diet and takes me for walks so that I will lose a few pounds.

I'm sweet, affectionate, not destructive and get along with other dogs. My family surrendered me because they had 2 babies and didn't have time for me anymore. So at this time I think a home with adults or older children would be best where I won't have to compete for affection.

I'm adjusting to being away from my family. Maybe it's because foster mom let's me sit on her lap and cuddle and takes me for walks. I know I will adjust to being in my furever home i with someone who will give me love and attention.

Sport is a 2 year old, 8 pound Maltese-Yorkie mix. He is one half of a bonded pair and comes to UYR with his furry best friend Georgie, a 1.5 year old, 4.5 pound Malti-Poo. Both pups are being fostered in Fremont, CA and must be adopted together. Because they are fearful of men, they can only be adopted into a female only household. NO OUT OF STATE APPLICATIONS WILL BE CONSIDERED.

THANK YOU TO SPORT'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Trula Montgomery, Carol Nelson

UPDATE BIO: 01/19/19. Sport is an adorable Yorkiepoo. He is a very happy little man, who loves affection. Sport would really like him and his best bud, Georgie, to find their very own mommy. They must be adopted to a female only home, Sport has a dislike for most men.

UPDATE BIO. 09/11/18 Sport is a really sweet little man, and seeks affection from me. However, he is very afraid of my room mate. We have tried to get him to like my room mate, but it seems the problem is getting worse. Sport becomes very agitated when the room mate is around. I then put the boys in their crate, and that calms him. I believe there was abuse from a man in his past.

An ideal home for these two would be a female only household. They are trained to use a doggie door. They love their back yard, so a small yard would be ideal. No children under 9.

UPDATE BIO. 06/27/18. Sport is just the most adorable guy, and is so loving. He does have a fear of strangers, but once he knows you, he is just a love bug. I have been taking him to puppy training, and I actually think he is the star pupil there. He prances around so proudly. He is learning his sit, down, and heel commands, and he has proven to be very smart. he is very nicely house trained, and uses a doggie door to do his business outside.

The boys are just a joy ot have around, and someone will be the very lucky person to be selected to be their forever.

UPDATE BIO. 05/22/18. Foster Mom has noticed Sport is very shy of strangers. Sport and Foster Mom will start puppy training this week, to train him on basic commands, but more importantly, to socialize him with other people, in the hopes that this will help his stranger danger fear. Foster Mom is pretty excited about this,

Sport is such a cute, comical little guy. You just can't help but love him at first sight!

Bailey

Bailey is an adorable tiny yorkshire terrier. She is 8 1/2 years old and weighs only 4.5 pounds. Bailey is being fostered in Clearwater, FL.

UPDATED BIO 01/04/2019: Bailey here - Happy New Year everyone! Here’s a few more things about me that you may like to know.

- I love people of all ages. BUT ….. because I am a tiny little girlie, I cannot go into a home with children younger than 14 years old. No exceptions please.

- My most favorite thing to do is to be with my person. I will sit/lie/love this for hours. I came from a home where I was alone much of the day and this made me very sad.

- Even though I love to be with my person, I also love love LOVE to go outdoors and my Foster Dad said that I travel well – he even takes me to work with him every day. I am experiencing the outdoors and being active for the first time since in my former home, I never went out. 

- I tend to prefer men - however, I will love anyone who will love me back.

- I have been thoroughly vetted and am up-to-date with all my vaccinations, spayed and microchipped and best of all – I have a clean bill of health.

- I am very gentle and tender and I seldom make a sound at all.

****** One VERY IMPORTANT FACT about me is that while I love all people, I need to be the only animal in the house. I don't play well with others. This is a requirement of whoever becomes my forever family.

****** PLEASE NOTE: BAILEY CAN ONLY BE ADOPTED WITHIN THE STATE OF FLORIDA.

- ONE VERY IMPORTANT FACT about me is that while I love all people, I need to be the only animal in the house. I don't play well with others. This is a requirement of whoever becomes my forever family.

****** PLEASE NOTE: BAILEY CAN ONLY BE ADOPTED WITHIN THE STATE OF FLORIDA.

Initial Bio 12-5-18 Little Bailey just arrived at her foster home today. Her former owners knew she needed a home where someone could give her the time and attention she needed. She was alone so much of the day, and her family knew how sad that was for her. It was not easy, but they knew they were not the right home for her any longer.

Her foster parents just met her and there is so much to find out about little Bailey. They do know that because of her tiny size she cannot go to a home with children under the age of 14. Please come back soon to and get to know Bailey better.

Adoption Pending

To date we've spent $244.56 on Bailey's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $50.00 in donations.

Brody

Meet Brody. He is a sweet and handsome 13 year old 7 lb Yorkie boy. Brody is being fostered in Altamonte Springs, FL..

UPDATED BIO 01/14/2019: Brody has been a busy little boy since he came into UYR a month ago. He was surrendered by his previous owner who could no longer care for him. Brody had not been vetted in over six years, so he needed a dental and to be brought up-to-date on his vaccinations.

Brody’s dental has been done and he lost 4 teeth, but still has 6-7 teeth left and this doesn’t affect his ability to eat. Brody was diagnosed with a Grade III/VI heart murmur but is currently not experiencing any symptoms, so he does not currently need to be on heart medications.

Foster Mom says that Brody is an angel and so very sweet. He loves belly rubs and has an extraordinarily sweet temperament and personality. He is friendly with other dogs and people, too. Brody does have bilateral cataracts, but can see good enough that he doesn’t bump into things and on his walks, he has a very spry gait.

Brody was apparently never encouraged to do his business outside or on pee-pee-pads, but Foster Mom is working with him to teach him where it is and is not appropriate to eliminate. He is going on the pee-pee-pads more often, so he appears to be getting it. It’s not uncommon for a new dog in the home to take a while to learn the pottying schedule and get accustomed to the smells in a new home. Brody is a smart little fella and it would be great if he could be adopted into a home where there is one stay-at-home parent who could consistently take him out every several hours.

Although Brody is considered a senior dog, he still has a lot of life to live and a ton of love to give to his adoptive family. Please don't turn away from him because of his age - he will bring great joy to whoever adopts this sweet boy. He is ready for his forever home.

PLEASE NOTE: Brody needs an adult-only home due to both his size and compromised vision.

UPDATED BIO 12/17/2018: Brody was surrendered by his owner who was unable to provide him with the proper care due to her medical disability. Brody saw the vet today and got all of his vaccinations updated, tested negative for fecal and heartworms, and his awfully long nails were trimmed which will surely make it easier for him to walk around. He will go for a long-past-due grooming appointment on Friday and have a dental on December 27th.

Brody has settled in beautifully in his foster home, and follows his Foster Mom all over the house. He is a snuggle-bunny extraordinaire and is sleeping with her in the big people bed. He also climbs into her lap when they are sitting on the couch. Brody is friendly with other dogs and people, too. He is just a super great little fella who is so deserving of a wonderful forever home. Brody does have cataracts, but can see clearly where he's going when he walks and does not bump into things. He loves his walks outside and has a very spry gait. Foster Mom says that he has the sweetest temperament and is a real love. Awwwwwww.

PLEASE NOTE: Brody needs an adult-only home due to both his size and compromised vision.

Although Brody is considered a senior dog, he still has a lot of life to live and a ton of love to give to his adoptive family. Please don't turn away from him because of his age - he will bring great joy to whoever adopt this sweet boy. He will be ready for his forever home after his dental on 12/27.

INITIAL BIO 12/15/2018: Brody just arrived at this foster home today. He was surrendered by his owner who was unable to provide the proper care for him due to her medical disability. Brody appears to be a very sweet and calm little senior boy. He arrived badly matted and will be visiting the groomer very soon so that he can have his mats cut out to make him more comfortable. Brody will also be busy visiting the vet so that he can be brought up-to-date on his vaccinations. Brody’s foster mom says that he is a snuggle-bunny and such a love. Stay tuned for more updates on Brody as his foster mom gets to know him better.


To date we've spent $735.37 on Brody's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $817.47 in donations.

I am so glad UYR gave me a home
Florida
Cheech (and Chong)

Cheech and his brother Chong are Yorkie Mixes. Cheech is estimated to be 10 years old and weighs a chubby 16 lbs. They are being fostered in Ft. Myers, FL

UPDATED BIO 01/19/2019: Cheech and his brother Chong are acclimating nicely to their foster home after being abandoned in a crate dumped in a church parking lot, along with a bag of food. Cheech has seen the vet and began the process of updating his vaccinations. Thankfully both dogs are heartworm & fecal negative. Cheech does need a dental badly, but will a radiograph of his heart should be done prior to anesthesia since he has a Heart Murmur. He has been started on antibiotics for the skin infection from scratching due to an infestation of fleas and should feel better really soon.

Because Cheech is a chubby 16 lbs, Foster Mom has him on a weight-reduction diet so that he can be a healthier and happier weight. He does limp a bit in the rear, but it is hoped that there is nothing significant going on like a torn or rupture of his CCL (Cranial Cruciate Ligament) – similar to the ACL in humans. He is on a course of Metacam for two weeks to see if this gives him some relief. Stay tuned for more information on both Cheech and Chong as his foster parents get to know them better.

PLEASE NOTE: Cheech and Chong are bonded and must be adopted together.

Initial Bio 1-15-19 Cheech and his brother Chong were abandoned in a church parking lot. They were in a crate with a bag of food sitting next to the crate. We know very little about them except they are very attached to each other. Cheech is overweight and will need to lose quite a bit of weight.

Cheech will be seeing the vet very soon. At that time he will receive all his vaccinations, a heartworm and fecal text, as well as blood work. More than likely he will also need a dental and possibly other vet care. As soon as Cheech has his vet appointment we will know more, so watch for more information on this guy coming soon.

Cheech and Chong are bonded and must be adopted together.


To date we've spent $0 on Cheech (and Chong)'s vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

I am so happy to be free

I cannot wait to be groomed.
Florida
Diva

Darling Diva is an adorable maybe 5-year-old, maybe 12-pound Yorkie mix. She needs love and care. Diva is being fostered in Spring Hill, FL.

INITIAL BIO 01/19/2019: What could be sadder then having your mommy die and then be left in your house all alone for over a month? That's right, Diva was living in a house - alone - for over a month with someone coming in maybe once a day to throw some food down for her. Yep, that is what happened to this darling little girl. Her owner died and no one was there who was willing or able to take her. Her owner's friend came in once a day, or every other day, to put some food down for her and then would leave. She was not taken out, she was not walked, she was not loved and cuddled and cared for. She lived alone in the house that reeked of her urine and feces. Finally, her kind neighbor approached the person who came to feed her and asked if she could help find Diva a home. This wonderful person reached out to United Yorkie Rescue and there was no way we would say no. We were ready to drop everything and go get her. Unfortunately for Diva, the person feeding her could not meet us for three days, so for 3 more days Diva had to remain alone in the house – so very sad.

Today Diva’s life changed. She is now safe and sound and loved and being cared for in her foster home. We know nothing for sure at this time about Diva. We don't know her exact age. We were told anywhere from 4 to 6 years old. We guess her weight to be about 12 pounds. She needs a grooming badly. She has sores on her skin due to what we believe was a severe flea infestation. We hope we were given the correct vet name to call and find out all we can about Diva. If we don't have that information, Diva will need all her vaccinations, not knowing if they were recently given to her. What we do know for sure is she needs to be spayed. She will have a heartworm test as well as a fecal, and possibly a minor dental.

Diva lost her beloved mommy and we are sure she is sad about that, but she was so happy to be out of what was formerly her loving home and surely she now feels safe and cared for. She loved being outside on the grass and right away did all her business – what a smart girlie! She seems so sweet and loving. There will be so much more to know about this sweet girl and we hope to have some of that information very soon. We don't know when Diva will be ready for adoption until she sees the vet, so please check back soon. The good news is Diva is no longer alone and uncared for; she is now safe in our loving care.


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

I am a sweet, good boy.
Florida
Jack

This sweet Yorkie mix boy is Jack. He is a very skinny 12.5 pounds. Jack is 10 years old. He is being fostered in St. Augustine, FL.

Initial bio 01-14-19 Poor Jack must have spent a long time wandering the streets before being picked up and taken to the local Humane Society. He is so skinny and was covered with fleas. The wonderful people at the Humane Society did everything they could be make him better, but he needed more care than they could give him. And so when his stray hold was up and no one called or came for him, Jack became a United Yorkie Rescue dog.

Jack is very underweight. His foster mom can see and feel his ribs protruding. His teeth are in very bad shape and need to be taken care of very soon. His eyes need continued antibiotics. It seems he is vision impaired. He can see, though not very well. It doesn't stop him from exploring and checking out his surrounding. Jack's skin is dry and flaky. He got his much-needed bath to help with the flakiness. There is hair loss on several parts of his body. This is most likely from the abundance of fleas that were on him when he was found. There also is a little growth on the top of his head, which may be a fatty tumor or something more severe. We hope not.

Jack seems to be a very friendly dog. He has already shown that he likes people. He was fine with the cat and the other dogs in his foster home. Jack will be seeing the vet next week and hopefully we will get nothing but good news. His teeth will be taken care of and he will get the meds needed for any other issues.

There will be so much more coming about Jack as his foster parents discover more about Jack, his personality, and his health. Please check back soon for more information on Jack and when he will be ready for his forever home.


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

I know I am so cute

I am such a sweet puppy
Florida
Lacey

Say hello to Lacey the Puppy. This adorable Maltese is only 9 months old and weighs just 5.5 pounds. She is being fostered in Leesburg, FL.

Initial Bio 1/8/19 Little Lacey is a sweet Maltese puppy. Her owner tearfully surrendered her when she realized that having a puppy was not working out for her older dog. Lacey also has been diagnosed twice with a urinary tract infection and crystals. She is currently on medication and also on special food that will insure her Ph levels stay stable and balanced.

Although Lacey recently arrived at her foster home she has made a place for herself after a short while. She is having a good time playing with the other young dog in her foster home and has become part of the gang. She seems to really like the fenced back yard and has been doing her share of running around and playing puppy chase and tackle. She is very sweet and loving and likes to be cuddled. She walks nicely on a leash and did well in the car. She has done her business outside and on the potty pad. Even though she did go outside and used the potty pad we can't say for sure she is house trained. That waits to be seen.

Lacey is currently on antibiotics for the UTI. When she is finished with them in about two weeks she will get another urinalysis. If that is negative she will then get her spay. After her spay heals she will be ready for her forever home, so it will be at least 3 to 4 weeks until she is ready for adoption.

Lacey is very small and would not do well in a home with children under the age of 13. Being a puppy Lacey needs a family that is active and can assure her at least a 15 year or more commitment, one forever family for her whole life. Applications will be considered, but no decisions can be made until after we know she has a negative urinalysis and she is in perfect health.


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

Romeo

Romeo is an adorable male yorkie who is 7 years old and weighs a skinny 4.14 lbs. Little Romeo has some special needs. He is being fostered in Ocala, FL..

THANK YOU TO ROMEO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Michelle Dancer, Nestor Sanchez, Jean Kirwan, Mary Jane Sanders, Karry Rogers, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Sandra Wendt, Angela McNally, Marie Elaine Sedlak and Louis Holscher, Maryanne Ware, Donors at Florida Pet Fair, Veronica Corzo, Pet Fair Donations in Florida, Nestor Sanchez, Barbie Asplundh, Angie Cagle

UPDATED BIO 01/5/2019: Hi, Romeo here. First, let me say Happy New Year to all my followers and admirers – yes, I know I have them. So far, it has been a great start to the New Year for me. I am feeling so much better and am continuing with my laser treatments, prednisone and a little pain medication at night. I am going to meet with the doctor next week to discuss my on-going treatment plan and will update you after that visit. I am giving my foster mommy kisses all the time because I feel great. That’s not to say that I might not have a down day here and there.

As I mentioned previously, the doctor believes I have Wobbler Syndrome– the great big name for this is Cervical Spondylomyelopathy or CSM. (Read my previous bio update to learn about this.) The doctor does not feel it is necessary to have an MRI to confirm her diagnosis. Even if I have a confirmed diagnosis, surgery is so expensive and is not guaranteed to work. The downside of my disease is that I may be okay today, but could become very ill at any moment. However, it could take many years for this to happen. No one knows for certain – life is like that for both animals and people. I like to be a one-day-at-a-time kinda guy so I can enjoy each new day.

I continue to play with my toys and I am holding up my head more and more. However, I can’t hold it up all the time cuz of my neck pain. That does not bother me because if I am looking down at the floor, I can find any food that my foster mommy may drop before my furbrothers find it. Bonus!

My foster mommy still thinks I should be an only dog. I LOVE attention and sometimes I get jealous of my furbrothers. My foster mommy says I turn into Kujo but it only lasts for a minute. Well, it’s my bedtime so I have to close for now (can’t wait to curl up next to my foster mommy in bed). I know there is that special person out there that needs a special little loveable boy like me. I am going to start dreaming about my new forever family. Sweet dreams.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Romeo’s tiny size and special needs, he must be adopted into an adult-only home. No exceptions please.

ONE MORE THING: My vet bills are now almost $2,000 so if you are reading my update, that means you are interested in knowing how I am doing. Since you are interested in me, maybe you are feeling a bit generous. Please think about making a donation to help UYR with my medical expenses. Even $5 will help – and it will help UYR when they are approached about taking in another little medically-needy doggie like me. Stay tuned to see if this new treatment plan will work.

UPDATED BIO 12/17/2018: Romeo was surrendered by his previous owner because he was unable to continue to care for him and wanted a better life for this sweet boy.

Here’s what Romeo had to say recently:

Hi, Romeo here. I am so excited to tell you that I am feeling so much better. I have already gained almost a pound – yeah! I have been taking prednisone and I have also had three laser treatments. The vet told my Foster Mom that she thinks I have something called Wobbler Syndrome – the great big name for this is Cervical Spondylomyelopathy or CSM. This is a disease of the cervical spine (at the neck) that is characterized by compression of the spinal cord or nerve roots which leads to neurological signs and neck pain. The term Wobbler Syndrome is used to describe the characteristic wobbly gait that affected dogs have. If the MRI determines that I have this, there is a very expensive surgery that may (or may not) correct it. There are no guarantees that the surgery will work. 

I am going to continue to have a few more laser treatments and stay on the prednisone which helps me feel so much better. My life is pretty good right now so it’s very possible that I can just continue on the prednisone without having the surgery – you know, the one that isn’t guaranteed to work. Stay tuned - I will soon be ready for adoption – yeah!

Foster Mom keeps telling me that I am a little love bug. I also enjoy riding in the car so I can go with my human to all the places dogs are allowed.

Here’s what I will need in my forever home:

- I really need to be an only dog because I want all the love and attention from my human. Lots of it. All the time.

- I also need to be in a home where there is at least one stay-at-home parent, maybe a retiree. I like to be with my human as much as possible. Well, really like - all the time!

I love my Foster Mommy very much, but I can’t wait to meet my Forever Family. Could that be you?

UPDATED BIO 11/22/2018: Romeo was surrendered by his previous owner because he was unable to continue to care for him and wanted a better life for this sweet boy. Romeo is still under-weight at 4 lbs and should gain at least 1 to 1-1/2 lbs to be a healthier weight. Please note that Romeo must be an only dog in his forever home. He prefers to get all the attention.

Here’s what Romeo had to say recently:

Hi, Romeo here. I am so excited. I just visited a new doctor and had my teeth cleaned and man-oh-man do I feel so much better. My foster mom says she is much happier when I give her kisses now because my breath smells so much better.

My new doctor gave me a thorough exam, especially since I’m still having trouble raising my head and I have a curvature in my spine and they tell me that my vertebra is not normally-shaped. It may be a herniated disc or I may have been injured in some way in the past. The nice lady doctor wants to try a new treatment plan. Foster Mom said that I am going to have laser treatments once a week for several weeks to see if this will help me. I will also be taking a medicine called prednisone to see if that helps me with the discomfort I am having. I don’t mind taking medicine so that does not bother me. My foster mom is hopeful that there will be some improvements. Me too, and my paws are crossed.

My vet bills are now almost $2,000 so if you are reading my update, that means you are interested in knowing how I am doing. Since you are interested in me, maybe you are feeling a bit generous. Please think about making a donation to help UYR with my medical expenses. Even $5 will help – and it will help UYR when they are approached about taking in another little medically-needy doggie like me. Stay tuned to see if this new treatment plan will work.

UPDATED BIO 11/02/2018: Romeo was surrendered by his previous owner because he was unable to continue to care for him and wanted a better life for him. Romeo is under-weight at 4 lbs and should gain at least 1 to 1-1/2 lbs to be a healthier weight. Romeo is a very sweet little boy who loves to sit on your lap and he will readily flop over for belly rubs! He also loves treats and will even sit for them when offered – sweet!

Some recent testing revealed several abnormal blood values that may indicate liver and/or bladder involvement, so an abdominal ultrasound was performed today. It revealed that Romeo’s liver looks okay, but if the blood values do not improve, a liver biopsy may be in order. The ultrasound also noted a thickened focal region along his dorsal urinary bladder wall. This may possibly be related to Romeo’s history of infection (UTI), but the potential of bladder cancer cannot be ruled out. A second urinalysis was submitted and will reveal if his UTI has cleared up.

The specialist is also concerned about Romeo’s inability to raise his head and the curvature in his neck– they suspect this may be caused by a herniated disc and if so, this is very painful. Further evaluation will need to be done to what the next steps are for this sweet boy.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to his tiny size, Romeo must be adopted into an adult-only home.

IF YOU LOVE UYR’S FOSTER DOGS, PLEASE CONTINUE READING: United Yorkie Rescue cannot continue to save beautiful furbabies like Romeo without your help. To date, Romeo’s medical expenses are over $1,400 and we’ve only raised $310 in donations. There are so many other little needy dogs like Romeo out there that need to be rescued, which is where you come in. Won’t you please consider donating to Romeo’s medical care so that we can help the next furbaby that needs us?

If you find it in your heart to do so, click on the PayPal Donate link underneath Romeo’s bio to help us not only with his on-going medical care, but also to help us rescue other little needy yorkies. Any amount is appreciated and every penny donated goes directly to medical expenses for our foster dogs. UYR has no paid staff and our volunteers/foster parents are paid in puppy kisses, tail wags and Happy Tails stories – this selfless sacrifice is so worth these precious blessings.

UPDATED BIO 09/23/2018: Romeo was surrendered by his previous owner due to the owner’s medical issues; he was unable to continue to care for Romeo and wanted a better life for him. Romeo is under-weight at 4 lbs and should gain at least 1 to 1-1/2 lbs to be a healthier weight. His foster mom has started him on a higher-calorie puppy food so that he can gain this much-needed weight.

Romeo recently had his follow-up vet visit and radiographs after being on anti-inflammatories for 3 weeks due to prior issues with his left shoulder joint and neck. The vet did not see any change from the previous radiographs, so there is no indication of a mass – yeah! She did see arthritis and inflammation in his shoulder and wrist, which is the reason Romeo walks with an awkward gait and has difficulty raising his head. It appears that he may have had prior trauma/injury to that area and never received any treatment for it. Romeo will be taking supplements and joint support medications (Glucosamine) for the rest of his life to give him relief from the discomfort. He will always walk with an awkward gait, but it is hoped that the supplements will relieve any pain he may be experiencing.

Once Romeo gains some much-needed weight, he will be getting a dental and will then be ready for adoption. Foster mom says that she believes Romeo would be much happier as the only animal in his forever home as he isn’t overly fond of his foster fur-family. Romeo is a very sweet little boy who loves to sit on your lap and he will readily flop over for belly rubs! He also loves treats and will even sit for them when offered – sweet!

PLEASE NOTE: Due to his tiny size, Romeo must be adopted into an adult-only home.

UPDATED BIO 09/06/2018: Romeo was surrendered by his previous owner due to the owner’s medical issues; he was unable to continue to care for Romeo and wanted a better life for him. Romeo is under-weight at 4 lbs and should gain at least 1 to 1-1/2 lbs to be a healthier weight.

Romeo presented with some medical issues that needed immediate medical attention. He has been seen by the vet and had several radiographs taken, along with a thorough examination and extensive bloodwork. At this time, the vet is concerned about his left shoulder joint and his neck. Romeo walks with an awkward gait and it is difficult for him to raise his head. His foster mom was given a sheet of exercises to do daily with him, and he will also be on anti-inflammatories for 3 weeks. He will then will return to the vet for a follow-up radiograph to see if there is any change in the shoulder and neck area.

Foster mom says that she believes Romeo would be much happier as the only dog in his forever home as he isn’t overly fond of his foster fur-family. She isn’t sure about kitty cats, although she did show him the cats in the pet store and he didn’t react, but it may be different if they were in his home. Romeo is a very sweet little boy who loves to sit on your lap and he will readily flop over for belly rubs! He also loves treats and will even sit for them when offered – sweet!

PLEASE NOTE: Due to his tiny size, Romeo must be adopted into an adult-only home.

INITIAL BIO 08/30/2018: Romeo just arrived at his foster home. He was surrendered by his previous owner due to the owner's medical problems and not having the time to care for Romeo. He is a timid boy right now and his foster parents will be working with him on making him comfortable and happy. Romeo is a sweet boy and follows his foster mom around. Foster mom doesn't think he is completely house-trained, but she will be working with him on that as well. Romeo has an awkward gait when he walks, but he is being seen by the vet very soon and we will figure out what's wrong and we will get him all fixed up.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to his tiny size, Romeo must be adopted into an adult-only home.

Tiger

Meet Tiger. He is 9 years young and weighs a too-chubby 13 lbs. Tiger is being fostered in Bradenton, FL..

INITIAL BIO 01/18/2019: Tiger was sadly surrendered today by his owner who has had him since he was only 7 weeks old. She was no longer able to care for him due to her own medical needs and wanted Tiger to have a family who could love him forever and ever. His former owner said that Tiger is a golden bundle of love who will be a joy to an active and young family.

Tiger is an active adult dog and loves to go on walks, which will be crucial to help him get to a healthier weight. He enjoys meeting new people and wants to sit on everyone's laps when they come into his home. Tiger would love to have a fenced-in yard so that he would have the freedom to run around to his heart's content. He is well-trained and understands most everything that is said to him by his human. He previously aced his training issues and BONUS - he is house-trained as well. His foster parents will be working with him on his frequent barking issue and also teaching him that eating from the table is a big no-no.

PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING:

- Tiger has always been the only dog in his home - he likes it that way. He has never been around cats, so a home without other fur-babies would be best for this sweet little man.

- Tiger would love to have a fairly active family to call his forever family. He would do best in a home with children older than 14 years old.


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

Tootsie

Tootsie is a sweet 10 year old, 11.12 pound Yorkie Mix. This little girl is most likely a Chorkie, a Yorkie/Chihuahua mix. She is being fostered in Odessa, FL.

UPDATED BIO 01/18/2019: Tootsie is a total sweetheart and so very sweet. She came into UYR from another rescue group who felt she would do much better in a home with smaller dogs. Tootsie has a history of UTI's and while at the shelter where she was surrendered by her original owners, they removed bladder stones and fully vaccinated her. Tootsie recently saw the vet for yet another UTI and it was discovered that she may have a heart murmur and potential mammary masses that may require a big surgery. Stay tuned for more information about this adorable, happy and otherwise well-adjusted little girlie.

INITIAL BIO 01/5/2019: Say hello to sweet Tootsie. This little girl is sweeter than a tootsie roll and just as lovable. She was originally surrendered to a local animal shelter. While at the shelter, she had an operation to remove bladder stones and was fully vaccinated. She was pulled by another rescue group, however because they mostly had big dogs in the home, Tootsie was having a hard time fitting in. The rescue called United Yorkie Rescue to see if we can take this little girl, and of course we said yes.

Tootsie loves to cuddle, is the perfect lap dog, and will follow you everywhere. Tootsie doesn't love kids very much. Tootsie has fully recovered from the surgery to remove bladder stones. She enjoys the company of other dogs, and enjoys play time and lap time. She is a happy well-adjusted little girl and gets very attached to her person. She was attached to her previous foster mom, but since coming into UYR we saw that she will attach herself to whomever she goes with that shows her the love she so richly deserves. Tootsie is very affectionate and would like your attention 24/7. She loves walks, car rides and being with you wherever you go!

Tootsie is spayed, heartworm negative, fully vaccinated, microchipped, current on flea and heartworm preventatives, and has had a dental. She will do her business outside and on potty pads, but may mark occasionally when she goes into a new home until she gets accustomed to the new routine.

Tootsie is almost ready for her forever home and can be adopted as soon as her foster parents know what kind of home would be best for this sweetheart. She would love someone home with her most of the day. Tootsie doesn't like to be alone too long, since we know she loves her person so much and wants them with her as much as possible. Maybe Tootsie is the girl for you.

PLEASE NOTE: Tootsie cannot be placed in a home with children under the age of 14 years old. No Exceptions please.


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

Can you find it in your heart to help me please?

I am a very sweet boy.
Florida
Tucker

This sweet, little Yorkie boy is Tucker. Tucker is 4.5 years old and 5 pounds of cuteness. Tucker desperately needs our help – please read his updated bio to see how you can help him. Tucker is being fostered in Palm Coast, FL.

THANK YOU TO TUCKER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Connie Caldwell, Tanya Weirick, Linda Russo, Sandy Pagnotta, Mary Whitaker, Jill Fauth, Holly Keller

UPDATED BIO 01/11/2019: Little Tucker was surrendered to United Yorkie Rescue by his owner one month ago. Although we were given a brief history on a right forelimb break approximately two years ago, it was only when the vet notes were sent to us that it was revealed that Tucker had fractures of both forelimbs in the past two years. The general practice vet bandaged and splinted the fractures but continued to strongly recommend that Tucker be seen by a veterinarian orthopedist. Sadly, that didn’t happen.

Fast forward – Tucker is an amazingly strong and courageous little boy who tries to enjoy his young doggie life in spite of the serious issue with both of his forelimbs. He is playful and gets along with the other dogs in the home and hobbles around to the best of his ability. Tucker has had a consultation with an orthopedic veterinarian at Blue Pearl and new radiographs were taken. These radiographs showed the great extent not only of his initial injuries, but because he continued to walk on his broken legs, more bone damage occurred and was revealed in the new radiographs.

Tucker has what is referred to as a bilateral antebrachium (the part of the forelimb between the wrist and the elbow) deformity due to malunion/chronic radias/ulna fractures. In laymen’s terms, because the fractures were not stabilized properly when the injuries occurred, and he continued to ambulate on both of them – this caused significant displacement of the bone fragments that were shattered. This was devastating news to our UYR family, and we were so saddened that Tucker has had to suffer with these untreated injuries for two years.

There are two treatment recommendations – one is a surgical correction which would involve cutting the bone and realignment and stabilizing them both with bone plates, bone grafts and screws. Because Tucker is so tiny and the injuries were occurred some time ago, complications exist in 50% of cases, and if this happens, it could result in a revision surgery. The estimated cost for each leg would be between $3,200 - $4,000.

The second treatment recommendation is to fit Tucker with orthopedic braces which he would need to wear for the rest of his life. These braces would be custom-molded to his forelimbs and would include padding that would need to be changed/replaced regularly so that wounds would not develop due to weight-bearing on the fracture ends. The custom orthopedic braces range in price from $200 - $600 per limb.

Tucker will have a follow-up appointment on 01/17 and will likely have molds taken at that time so that the orthopedic braces can be manufactured. We are hopeful that this will be a permanent fix for Tucker, but that cannot be determined until we see how he progresses with the braces. At this time, Tucker is not ready to be adopted and will be in foster care for several more months after he is fitted with his orthodic braces. We are currently accepting adoption applications which will be held and reviewed when he is ready to go to his furever home.

United Yorkie Rescue has stepped up to the plate to rescue Tucker and we will do everything we can to ensure that he can be pain-free and a happy little dog. Tucker’s medical expenses will be high, and we couldn’t help dogs like him without the help of our amazing donors. If you find it in your heart to donate to this sweet boy’s medical expenses, please visit his bio page at unitedyorkierescue.org, scroll down until you find his page, and donate by clicking on the PayPal donation link. Remember, every donation counts and without your donations, we would not be able to continue to rescue deserving dogs like Tucker.

Initial bio 12-12-18 Little Tucker was sadly surrendered when his owner was told that she needed major surgery that would send her to bed for weeks and into a slow recovery and rehab for months. She knew she wouldn't be able to care for Tucker. With tears in her eyes and sadness in her heart she knew Tucker needed have a better life where he would get the love and care she could no longer give him, so he became a United Yorkie Rescue dog. .

Tucker is a beautiful white Yorkie with light gray markings. He may be a Biewer Yorkie with very unusual coloring. Tucker had an injury to his front right foot about two years ago and it appears that, although it does not seem to bother him or slow him down at all, it needs to be examined and x-rayed by a vet. We will need to know more about this injury and what may have to be done for it before Tucker will be able to go to his forever home.

Tucker was great in the car to his foster home. He has started to make himself comfortable and play with the other dogs in his foster home. He gets along with other dogs and he likes people too. He seems to be an all around great little guy.

Tucker will be seeing the vet very soon. We are hoping that his leg won't need any major medical care, but we will know more after his vet appointment. Please come back soon when we know more about Tucker, his medical needs, and his little personality.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Tucker's tiny size, he can only be adopted into a home with children 15 years old or older. No exceptions.


To date we've spent $292.35 on Tucker's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $950.00 in donations.

Tyson

Tyson

Tyson is a 9-year-old, 9-pound Yorkie boy being fostered in Suwanee, GA.

Initial Bio 1/3/2019

Tyson comes to UYR from loving owners who had him since he was a puppy. Sadly, when children came along Tyson did not adjust well and began to protest when their two year old wanted to play. With a second child on the way and after some serious efforts on behalf of his owners to get everything to work out his owners decided that the best thing for Tyson was to try to find a home where he could be free from tiny humans. Tyson is reported to be a very sweet boy who loves attention and does great around adults. Tyson would LOVE to be an only fur-kid and land in a home where he could be the center of his human’s universe. Tyson does need some work in the house-training arena. His owners stated he is mostly house-trained but does have occasional mistakes so a little patience and attention should get him where he needs to be. Tyson is healthy and just needs a few things to be up to date on his care so if you think you are his perfect person go ahead and apply to adopt him today!

Avery
Indiana
Avery

Meet Avery, a 1.5 year old, 17 pound Yorkie Mix. He is being fostered near Fort Wayne, IN.

THANK YOU TO AVERY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Wendy Klinke

12/30/2018 UPDATE: Avery will need a permanent home with an experienced adopter who has worked with trauma dogs. The home must be a quiet setting with a secure fence to ensure Avery does not flee and escape. Preferred candidate would be an owner who has previously adopted a trauma dog, behavioral specialist, or an experienced trainer. Patience is key.

UPDATE BIO. 11/02/18. “Even though Avery is not ready for adoption, I wanted to post an update on his progress”... He has come quite far, and we are very happy! He will be 2 years old on 12/17 and still weighs around 16 pounds. He is a Border Terrier/Yorkie mix, so that accounts for his size.

He comes when he is called, knows what “no” and “enough” mean. If he is barking a bit too much, we say “enough” and he stops. He lets us walk up and pet him, and is very curious, as to what we are doing, when not in the same room.

Avery had is first haircut. We took him to a groomer who is trained in grooming puppy mill and skittish dogs. He was skittish, but never tried to bite, which is a very good sign of his demeanor.

Avery is house trained and potty pad (just for potty) trained. He will bark, or go to the door when he needs to go out. At nighttime, Avery will continue to bark until one of us gets up to let him out.

He LOVES chew toys, and playing with the other dogs! He has also become less skittish, but still has a ways to go until he is ready for adoption. We’ll see what happens in another 3 months.

UPDATE BIO. 06/24/18. Avery is Not Ready to be adopted. He is still afraid of all people. No applications at this time, please.

Avery is a very healthy and Handsome boy. He is large, at 15 pounds, and does shed, but not terribly. Really good brushings and combings help with that.

When he is ready, he will need a totally secure fenced yard, since he is a runner. Also children over the age of 13 years old. Most of all, he will need a very patient, loving family.

Avery will need a companion dog that is loving, nurturing, and playful.... or one that’s nurturing and another dog that is playful.

Please visit often for updates on his ability to trust again and readiness for adoption.

UPDATE BIO. 05/28/18. Avery has been with us for 1.5 months, and has settled in with our, and our dogs routine. As of right now, he seems a long way from being ready for his “Forever Home”.

Avery will take a treat from your hand, but then runs back to his safe spot. To us, he is house-trained. He goes out in the morning, after each meal, and before bedtime. He can go a good 5 hours, if you need to go somewhere, before having to go outside...he has gone up to 7 hours. We “do not” kennel or crate him when we leave. He stays in our TV room with our other dogs, and is very content, and happy sleeping next to the others.

Initial Bio 4/17/18: Avery is a 1.5 year old, 17 lb. Yorkie-mix. We do not know what he is a mix of, but he is a very handsome boy. He came from an 80 dog hoarding situation, but despite all that he has been thru, he is starting to trust people.

Avery had his veterinary appointment today and did well. I was able to pick him up and hold him while my husband drove us to the vet. Dr. T, my wonderful veterinarian, was also able to pick him up and examine him.

Avery is great with other dogs. He goes up and down our steps to go outside to potty etc. and when he is done, he runs right back to the door to be let back in. I feel that in a month or two, Avery is going to be a loving companion for someone. Watch for more updates as I get to know Avery better.


To date we've spent $76.75 on Avery's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $76.75 in donations.

Maggie May
Indiana
Maggie May

Meet the gorgeous Maggie May. Maggie May is a 4 year old, 4.5 lb. little girl being fostered in Greenfield, IN. She needs an MRI to diagnose a neurological issue and won't be available for adoption for 2-3 months until we address the cause of her problem. Maggie May cannot be adopted outside the state of Indiana.

THANK YOU TO MAGGIE MAY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Denise Fantetti, Darlene Schultz, Sandra Wendt, Raygan Stone, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Stephanie Groves, Stephanie Groves, Gail Sherman, Melissa Chiera, Karry Rogers, Angie Cagle, Sandra Wendt, Rebecca Root, Noreen Deckard

Update BIO. 11/24/2018 Foster Mom has determined that Maggie May will need a VERY SPECIAL Adoptive Mom/Dad. Maggie May continues to have neurological deficits due to lesions on her brain, likely from trauma. Maggie is currently on daily Predisone, and she likely will need this medication for the rest of her life. Maggie May has a tendency to run in circles at times, regurgitate her food if she eats too much in one sitting and ducks whenever someone reaches to pet her. Maggie May needs a stay at home owner who she can bond with and to love her. She is very loving once she gains trust of the humans in her life and she is just the cutest little lady. If you can give this special needs Yorkie a good home with understanding of her limitations, please fill out an application. Adoption applications will be considered for Indiana, Illinois and Wisconsin only.

Update Bio. 04/11/18. Hi. Maggie May and I thought we would give you an update on how she is going doing. We just returned from spending the winter in the sunny south. After the neuro tests, it was determined that she has a lesion on the left side of her brain. We are still adjusting her medication.

She also saw a dentist and had 10 rotted teeth removed and a good cleaning. Maggie May could not chew her food and she regurgitated everything she ate. She now is on a diet of soft food. She is a big eater and gaining her weight back.

Oh yes, she has a new haircut, which makes it easier on her, because she doesn’t like the Groomer.

Maggie May is a special needs girl, and probably always will be. She is beginning to show more of her personality to us.

We will check in again soon.

Updated Bio: 1/13/17. Maggie May is doing well in her foster home. She isn’t a cuddly little girl yet, but she does love to sit and have rubs on her head and back. She loves dinner time, napping, riding in the car and likes to keep her fur brother and sister in line. She enjoys exploring the house and follows her foster mom and dad around everywhere. She certainly does not enjoy going outside in this cold Indiana weather.

Maggie May has had a busy first 30 days in foster care. She came to UYR with information of having a fall in January 2017. Upon receiving her original vet records, we found that this sweet little girl has many other issues and no testing was done. Maggie May circles constantly only to the left, and may have diminished sight in her right eye. She has regurgitation issues and has been taken off hard kibble and put on soft, canned, pate food. This has been a temporary solution to her eatingsuccessfully. Maggie May has weakness in her hind legs, and loses her balance frequently. Maggie saw the dogtor and is scheduled for a dental and several extractions on January 17.

We had three specialty consults this week, and she spent the night at the hospital. She is scheduled for an MRI and spinal tap on January 24, to see exactly what neurological issues she has. We also had a consultation with an orthopedic doctor who believes that she has luxating patellas and possibly a torn ACL in her right leg. These issues will be addressed at a later date. Maggie May also met with an internist regarding her digestive issues, and will have an xray and other tests in the future.

We visited the groomer this week and had her hair shortened to make care easier on her. She did not like the grooming process at all.

We are so thankful that she was rescued when she was, so that we can provide the care and medical attention that she so desperately needs. Maggie May’s testing will be very expensive, but will help her to be healthy, pain free and hopefully ready for her furever family. If your heart leads you to donate to help defray the very high costs of her tests and treatments, it would so greatly be appreciated. Just a few dollars from a lot of people will help her. If you cannot donate, please say a little prayer for her.

It has been determined that when Maggie May is ready to be adopted she will only be adopted in the Indiana, to a pet free, adult only home.

Initial Bio. 12/15/17. Please welcome sweet Maggie May. She has had her entire world turned upside down when she was surrendered by her original owner. Maggie is 4 years, 9 months old and weighs 4.5 lbs. She is very timid and shy, and appears to be potty trained. We don't know a lot about her as she has only been with her foster mom for only 24 hrs. She will have her vet check appointment the first of next week. We do know that she had a fall a few months ago and is still on a medication. She is up-to-date with her shots and she has been micro-chipped and spayed. It will be hard not to fall in love with this little angel.

If you are interested in this beauty, just follow the link below to complete an application for adoption.

Kentucky
Henry

Henry is a 4 (estimated) year-old (estimated), 13-pound Yorkie boy being fostered in Elizabethtown, KY.

We don’t know a lot about Henry’s past other than he was found as a stray by a Good Samaritan. They kept Henry for six whole weeks trying to locate his owner. Sadly they were unable to find them and could not keep him themselves so Henry landed at the shelter.

Henry has a beautiful thick, curly silver and tan coat and the saddest, most soulful eyes that look like they can see into you. He is a young dog but has an “old soul” spirit about him so we don’t think he would be a fan of children but we can’t know for sure. He is a bit shy but he attaches very fast and strong to “his person.” He has only been in his foster home a few days but so far he is very sweet and “chill.” He will let you roll him onto his back and hold him like a baby. Henry would LOVE to be an only child but might also do well with another pet of similar size and energy that is not possessive of their human. Henry has given us some indications that he wants a person of his very own and he is already a bit possessive of his foster Dad. Henry is not a mean dog by any stretch....he’s just a sad little boy who’s been lost, re-homed temporarily , taken to a shelter and now in yet another new place and he’s just feeling lost and insecure and very much in need of a Forever Person who will love him and keep him. Henry is mostly house-trained and has only had one accident so far in his foster home. He has a good appetite, but came to us with a some dry skin which is responding well to treatment. Henry is up to date on all his Vet care and ready for adoption. If you are looking for a mild-mannered sweetheart of a dog that will bond quickly and love you to pieces, Henry is your guy so hurry on over to our website and apply to adopt him today.


To date we've spent $54.72 on Henry's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Kermit
Ohio
Kermit

Kermit is a sweet 8 year old, 10 pound girl (yes girl :-) who is being fostered in Cleveland, OH.

THANK YOU TO KERMIT'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Trula Montgomery, John Sauser

UPDATE BIO. 10/26/18. Kermit “Kermie” is an adorable 9-year old Yorkie who weighs about 15 lbs. Kermie is smart, sensitive, and sweet and shy. She will shy away and get very panic-stricken if she hears loud noises or yelling. She gets along well with other small dogs (once she gets to know them (NO BIG DOGS)) and children.

She can sometimes do resource guarding but is getting better with that. She loves to play with toys, give kisses, and cuddle. She loves taking walks. She is crate trained. She loves treats and is very food motivated. She is on a grain free and chicken free diet. Though we do watch what she consumes because she eats like she is starving. She takes ½ of an allergy pill twice daily. She never has grown back all her hair but she does have peach fuzz in areas that were bald. She wears a t-shirt during the summer to prevent sunburn and sweaters during the winter.

She is not 100% house trained. She can go all day in her crate without going but needs to let out immediately to use the facilities outside. We have tried for months to potty pad train her and she just won’t. As long as she is let out routinely she is pretty good. In the evening she is blocked in our kitchen and she can hold it. Sometimes we let her in with us later in the night. She will need a knowledgeable owner who is patient, loving, and will provide a positive environment. She will require a completely fenced in backyard. No exceptions!

Update 6/6/18: Kermit is doing well with other dogs as long as she is fed separately. She is growing her hair back except for a few spots which might never fully fill in. She has a ton of energy and loves to go for walks. Kermit is not housetrained. She will hold it during the day when she is in her room (bathroom) but seems to have a problem when she gets over excited. At night she wears diapers and for the most part they will be dry in the morning.

She will do best in a home where someone is with her most of the time and can help with house training. She loves to sit out in the sun so she has t shirts to wear to prevent her getting sunburned. She is on a chicken/grain free food to help with any allergies and she really loves food. All treats and food have to be locked up safe :) to prevent her "helping herself". She does not beg at the table. She loves to sit on the couch or chair with you and just chill. Kermit will need a home with a fenced yard.

Updated Bio. 01/22/18. Meet Kermit. She is a GIRL and 8 years old. Her owner was unable to take care of her any longer do to a illness. She is getting along well with my dogs but does not get along well with big dogs. I think she will do well in a single dog home with NO small animals (birds, rabbits, etc.) She loves kids. When Kermit came to use she had no hair on her back. We have changed her food ( NUTRO LID ) and we think that might have been the issue but we are still working on making sure of the reason why all the hair loss. She is scheduled for a dental on February 12th. She has severe anxiety, so it would be great for her to go to a home where someone is home with her for the day and night. She is not 100% potty trained so we are working on that. She sleeps in bed with us for most of the night, but we do find her sometimes sleeping with our 15 year old dog all cuddled up. We will update you on her progress with the hair loss.

Initial Bio. 1/3/18. Sweet Kermit came into rescue on January 2. She has some health issues that we are trying to address. She had no hair on her back and her stomach was bloated. Her foster mom switched to a grain-free limited ingredient dog food and the bloating is gone and her hair is growing back. She saw the vet today and has been put on an antihistamine/steroid and antibiotic which hopefully will clear up her remaining skin problems. She'll have bloodwork done and once all looks good with that, we'll proceed with vaccinations. Sweet Kermit does have some anxiety issues which we hope will improve once she has settled into foster care.


To date we've spent $576.55 on Kermit's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $45.00 in donations.

THANK YOU TO BENJI'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Irene and Peter Havas

Update 12/03/2018

Meet Benji! He is a 10 year old 4.5 pound male Yorkie. He is very active & in great health. Benji is house trained & leash trained. He enjoys walks 2-3 times daily. He came to us as an owner surrender. He was matted, flea infested, and showed signs of neglect. Benji spent a lot of time in a kennel and was not socialized. He has made so much progress in his foster home & continues to form trusting relationships with humans. He is enjoying life now and needs someone to share it with, maybe you!

Initial Bio 11/7/2018

Benji was surrendered to UYR from loving owners who knew they did not have time to give Benji the attention he needs and deserves. So far he is sweet, loving and playful. He does need some work in the house-training arena so a patient person with lots of time to devote to him would be ideal. We are still getting to know him so stay tuned or updates.

THANK YOU TO HARLEY DAVIDSON'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Irene and Peter Havas, Candice Knaps

Initial Bio 10/09/2018

Meet Harley! He is a 10 year old 8 pound male Yorkie. He is very active and in great health. Harley has so much love to give, he is a perfect companion dog. He likes to follow you around and sit in your lap. Harley has a beautiful silky coat and classic fawn and cobalt coloring. He is very smart & learns new concepts quickly. Harley is house trained, wee pad trained, harness leash trained & knows basic commands like his name, stay, get down, & lay down. He enjoys daily walks & loves off leash running, so a fenced in yard would be most ideal. He is an excellent look out guard dog, as Yorkies are known for. He only barks a warning bark if he hears something, then goes & checks it out, but otherwise he is very quiet. Harley came to us as a malnourished, matted, flea infested owner surrender by way of a high kill animal control facility. With all of that behind him he's ready to start his new life, maybe with you!

Beckham

Beckham has a PENDING ADOPTION. Beckham is a 4-year-old, 8-pound Yorkie-Poo being fostered in Clarksville, TN.

Hi there everyone! My name is Beckham. I was found wandering as a stray and ended up in a shelter. I was in rough shape; long nails, really matted and very afraid. Lucky for me I didn’t have to stay there very long before someone came to get me. I wasn’t sure who it was or what was happening to me because my face was so matted I couldn’t see very well. But I could feel the love in my rescuer’s hands and that love flowed through me and made me feel safe. Pretty soon I was in a different place and I could feel the soft buzz of clippers. Slowly the sheets of hair began to fall away and soon I was free! I could see! Next stop was at my foster home where it was so nice and warm! I got all the yummy food I wanted, a clean soft bed and lots of belly rubs! I now know my foster Mom and she says “Beckham....you are a PERFECT DOG!”

Well, I don’t think I’m quite perfect but I am a very good boy! I am house-trained, I love other dogs and all sizes of humans. I don’t bark much at all. I am a real cuddle bug and I love being with my person! HEY.....MAYBE I AM A PERFECT DOG! If you think so....then I am looking for my PERFECT PERSON so if that’s you then LET’s HOOK UP! Apply to adopt me today!

Adoption Pending

Hank is an 10-year old, 9.5 pound senior Yorkie fellow being fostered in Nashville, TN

THANK YOU TO HANK'S RESCUE ANGELS!,

Annetta Barton, Sandy Pagnotta, Holly Keller, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Sarah Bartel, Paul Clark,

Updated Bio 12/15/18: It’s been a long journey friends! To recap, I came from a shelter with a sore foot. My foster Mom took me to lots of Vets and I had SO MANY TESTS! Each time all the humans would just scratch their heads and look bewildered. They said “multiple myeloma” and my foster Mom cried LOTS! UYR made me a Forever Ours Yorkie too. Everyone was SO SAD! But then the results came back. And it was NOT Multiple Myeloma. The results were inconclusive but negative for MM. Back to the specialist we went and more big words were tossed about like “probable rare form of cancer.” The Dogtors scratched their heads some more and foster Mom cried LOTS AGAIN!! Then they recommended amputation to remove my whole leg and said it could give us a firm diagnosis and take care of my pain and JUST PAWSIBLY.......wait for it.......GIVE ME A CURE!!!! And foster Mom smiled the best smile EVER and got that special twinkle in her eye back that I haven’t seen since she first saw me! Since having my left rear leg amputated, I’ve felt so much better! Foster Mom instantly recognized a pep in my step and now says “I’ve got SWAGGER!!!

Back to my health.......We learned from the pathology report that my pain was due to a very rare autoimmune condition called multifocal fasciitis osteomyelitis. It is also called sterile osteomyelitis. Get this! All the Dogtors and specialists who saw me or were consulted about my case say it’s SO RARE that NONE OF THEM had ever even seen it before! Here’s the good news; I don’t need any further treatment other than a calcium supplement to support my bones and we have no reason to believe I am not cured! My diagnosis is TRULY RARE however so I need to go to a home where they will be extra vigilant about monitoring me for any skeletal pain or lesions because that would indicate I needed evaluation right away. I also need a family that understands that after everything I’ve been through I deserve unconditional love and support for the rest of my life! My foster mom recommends that my future family’s home have a fenced in area and limited stairs.

The home should have no small children and hopefully a calm and cuddly fur companion for me to play and snuggle with. Since I am currently recovering from my surgery and the holidays are quickly approaching, my foster mom is happily welcoming all inquires, but please know that I’m need to recover from my surgery fully and won’t be ready for adoption until after the New Year. For more information email: NashvilleTNYorkie@gmail.com. My Vet bills have LOTS! I’d really appreciate any financial help by clicking the PayPal button beneath my bio.

Inital Bio 08/26/2018

A friendly police officer brought Hank to a local shelter after he was found wandering aimlessly. The shelter hoped to reunite Hank with his family, but sadly when his family arrived they chose to surrender him in lieu of taking him home. When the United Yorkie Rescue learned of Hank’s plight, plans were made to find Hank a foster family.

Hank arrived at his foster home sheepish and limping. His foster mom and foster dad made sure he was comfortable until his appointment with the veterinary. His foster brothers and sister, shared their treats and toys. The sadness behind Hank’s eyes began to fade as he felt love for the first time in a long time.

Hank’s foster family knew his foot must be hurting, because he whimpered and shook. So, the next morning, Hank and his foster mom headed to the veterinary’s office. The veterinary shared that Hank’s x-ray showed severe damage to the bones in his foot likely caused by an aggressive, invasive soft tissue cancer. The cancer had weakened the bones and caused them to fracture. Additional x-rays did not show that the cancer had metastasized, so we are hopeful that the recommended amputation will save Hank’s life. Hank’s foster mom and foster dad are anxiously awaiting the veterinary to call to schedule surgery. They know it will not be easy for Hank, but they have been reassured that he will feel much better once the cancer is gone.

Hank and his foster family are very thankful for all of the love and support they have received from the United Yorkie Rescue community! If you would like to support Hank’s recovery, please consider making a donation on his behalf. If you would like additional information or pass along words of encouragement and love please email Hank’s foster mom at NashvilleTnYorkie@gmail.com

Josie

Josie is a 6–year-old, 6.5 pound Yorkie girl being fostered in Murfreesboro, TN.

Update December 3, 2018: Josie is doing well in her foster home. Since arriving in Murfreesboro she has been spayed, groomed and had her teeth brushed. She is still very shy but spending more time exploring her foster home. Josies foster family is working on house training and it is going well. She does use a pee pad sometimes and we are thinking that maybe this was part of her past life. She weighed 6.5lbs at her last appointment but she is eating well and seems to be putting on some weight. She likes to play with her foster brother, so I think she would enjoy sharing a home with another playful small dog. She will need a family with lots of patience and love. Because of her shyness a family with older children would be best. Josie sleeps with her foster mom and dad at the foot of their bed in her own little bed. Josie loves her little doggie bed. Josie likes turkey for treats and an occasional hot dog. She has not learned to sit but has learned to walk on leash. She enjoys taking car rides and is becoming more comfortable around her human foster sisters. Please email if you have questions.

Initial Bio 11/19/18

Little Josie landed in the shelter as a stray with no collar, no tags, and no microchip. When her stray hold was up we went and got this sweet girl. She just saw the Vet today and thankfully she is in pretty good physical health. She weighs about 6.5 pounds but is too thin. The Vet has instructed Josie’s foster parents to feed her three times a day to get her to a healthier weight of about 8 pounds. The Vet was unable to tell if Josie is spayed or not so a special blood test was drawn to find out. We should have the results in ten days. Right now Josie is very shy and spends her time in her bed. She will shrink away from an outstretched hand but we hope with lots of love and attention that will change soon. She LOVES food and is very food motivated. She is not house-trained so she is working on that skill in her foster home. We think she would like another small friendly dog to be pals with. Josie has a beautiful full tail. We are just getting to know her so stay tuned for updates. To help with Josie’s medical care click the PayPal button below.

Maggie

Maggie is a 5-year-old (estimated), 11-pound Yorkie Mix girl being fostered in Murfreesboro, TN.

Update January 20, 2019: Maggie is doing well in her foster home. She is around 4 y/o old, weighed 12lbs at her last appointment and is eating well. Since arriving in Murfreesboro, she has been to the veterinarian and is being treated for a UTI (urinary tract infection) and the veterinarian believes that she might need to be on a special diet for a prolonged time. The veterinarian will assess again once she has completed her antibiotic treatment. She has been groomed and will be spayed and have her teeth brushed/cleaned in about three weeks from today 1/20/19. Maggie is very friendly, plays very well with her fur adopted/rescued brother and sister. She loves to give kisses and sleeps with her foster mom and dad at the foot of their bed and with her other fur brother/sister. Maggie is about 90% house trained and is doing better every day. Maggie likes turkey for treats and an occasional hot dog. She does take commands well and walks very well on a leash. She enjoys taking car rides and is very alert to who is coming in and out of the house. Please email if you have questions.

Sadly Maggie landed in the shelter after being picked up as a stray by animal control. When her stray hold was up, UYR was contacted to find this sweetheart a forever home. No worries now sweet Maggie because we have got you and it is all going to be GOOD from here on out! Maggie just arrived in her foster home so we are just getting to know her but so far she is a very sweet girl. She appears to be very social, has loved everyone she has met (both human and canine) and loves to play and give kisses. There have also been no potty accidents thus far and she has done all of her “business” outdoors so we are HOPEFUL she is mostly house-trained but time will tell for sure. Maggie is definitely at least half Yorkie but we aren’t quite sure (and can’t ever know) what her “other half” might be. She is a great size at 11 pounds and has a beautiful full tail. She has an adorable “tuft” of super soft, fluffy hair on top of her head that adds an extra measure of fun, character and charm to this already precious girl. Maggie needs to be spayed and microchipped before she is ready to be adopted but she is otherwise healthy, has a mouth full of sparkling white teeth, is up to date on routine Vet care and should be ready to pack her little Yorkie bags and be ready to head out to her forever home very soon. Stay tuned for updates as we get to know Maggie better!

Maxy
Tennessee
Maxy

Maxy is an adorable 9 year old, 17 pound sweetheart being fostered in Nashville, TN.

THANK YOU TO MAXY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Brandy Caldwell

Updated Bio 1/19/19

Maxy was adopted from UYR over 3 years ago by a wonderful person who loved him lots and took good care of him. But sometimes things happen that you can’t anticipate that turn your life upside down and long story short.....Maxy is back with us again and it’s ALL OKAY because we will find him ANOTHER amazing human to be his last stop on the way to FUREVER HAPPINESS!

Maxy is a sweet senior gentleman who is 11 years young. We would LOVE to find his person quickly to minimize disruption in this sweet boy’s life and save him the trauma of bonding closely with his foster and having to move again so PLEASE help us and help Maxy by sharing his story to reach as many Yorkie lovers as PAWSIBLE.

Maxy is a bit set in his ways like most older dogs and he has some pretty specific needs. Maxy needs to find an adults-only home and he also needs to be an only fur-child. Maxy is very protective of his humans and is not a fan of sharing them. Those are the two big requirements for Maxy’s future adopter. But Maxy has lots of things that go in the plus column! He LOVES to play fetch the ball and is a big fan of dog toys. He also LOVES running around his fenced yard so a fenced yard would be a BONUS! Maxy will give you kisses and cuddle but his favorite position is laying close beside you. He loves getting belly rubs, looking out the windows and watching outdoor activities and going for car rides. Maxy is all ready with his doggy bags packed and ready to head HOME so if you are an adults only home with no other pets and think you are Maxy’s PAWFECT MATCH apply to adopt him today!

Initial Bio 12-9-18 Maxy was adopted from UYR in 2015 by someone who loved him very much but had unforeseen circumstances that made it impossible to keep him. With much sadness, they decided the best thing for Maxy was to return to UYR. Lucky for Maxy he was able to return to the very same foster family who loved him so much before so hopefully this will make things easier for him. Maxy is a bit on the chubby side so his foster peeps are going to help him get back into his SKINNY JEANS for the New Year! We aren’t sure Maxy is excited about this but he sure is happy to see his foster fur brothers again and engaging in lots of aerobic exercise playing and romping. So far Maxy is VERY PLAYFUL! He would love to play fetch 24/7 if you just keep throwing the ball! Maxy likes to be near you, but he isn't really a lap dog per se. Maxy also has some minor skin irritations that need care but he should be ready for adoption soon.

Maxy just arrived back in his foster home so stay tuned for updates!


To date we've spent $0 on Maxy's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $325.00 in donations.

Meatball
Tennessee
Meatball

Meatball is an 11-year-old, 9-pound Yorkie boy being fostered in Nashville, TN.

Meatball here. My mom and dad were the best on the planet! I loved them so much and they loved me too. I sat by my mom ALL THE TIME. Then one day there was a little human and then another little human, and they wanted to chase me and pull my tail. After 7 years as an only child, the last 4 have been a real bummer. But my former owners wanted what was best for ME so they reached out to UYR for help so I could find my perfect new home to live forever. My new foster mom gets me, though. She calls me ‘anxious’ and ‘precious’. She says I have the sweetest eyes and she loves my kisses on her chin. She lets me sit by her on the couch and I would stay there if she would sit still longer. I sleep by her side so I can hear her heart.

And I have a brother here who never sits still unless he is asleep on her other side. He is always playing with toys, and I enjoy watching his antics. The three of us go for walks and it’s so much fun! No one pulls my tail or squeals or moves too quickly. I’ve met a lot of new people and new dogs where we live. They all seem very nice.

My hope is for Foster Mom to find me a forever home with adults only, maybe another dog but no cats, where I can lounge with my person or people and cuddle. I will love them forever and they will know by how I look at them, how closely I snuggle, and I will never be afraid again!

Check in on me again and I’ll tell you more about my new foster family and our adventures.

P.S. I met the new vet yesterday. She was mostly nice. My foster mom held me in her arms, so I wasn’t too very scared. The vet says I look great for my age in spite of a little heart murmur. She says I only have a little bit of arthritis and that I’m very ‘limber’ for an older dog. Who’s older?! I’ve still got all my teeth and they’re going to be cleaned this week, too.

Miles Archer
Tennessee
Miles Archer

Miles Archer is an adorable 3-year-old (estimated) 10-pound Yorkie boy being fostered in Ashland City, TN.

THANK YOU TO MILES ARCHER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Bonnie Vaupel, Angie Cagle, Jeanne Cauldwell, Wendy Fuhrmaneck

Update 1/12/19

Miles came to UYR from a Good Samaritan who found him wandering the city as a stray. They spent a lot of time and effort trying to find his owners and even contacted the shelter to see if anyone had been looking for him. The shelter was full and could not take him and his finder decided they really wanted to keep him themselves. However, the older, bigger dogs in the home did not accept Miles so it was decided that the best thing for Miles was to become a United Yorkie Rescue boy! When Miles came into rescue, he (and his foster Mom) got some bad news at his first Vet visit. Poor Miles was heartworm positive. This meant that he would have to undergo the very costly and unpleasant treatment to rid his heart and system of these life-threatening invaders. Miles was very lucky in that a great adopter saw his sweet face and read his story right after he came to us and they knew that he had to be theirs! The application checked out great and now all there was to do was wait out the weeks and months until Miles’s heartworm treatment was completed. But sadly for Miles and his adopter circumstances beyond their control and unexpected life changes occurred that meant that they would not be able to adopt him. So now, Miles is up for adoption again and the best news is that he is heartworm free, healthy and ready to find his forever home.

Miles is adorable as you can see from his photo. He has big, full ears and a splendid full tail. Miles gets very attached to his human and he has been known to be a little bit jealous of the other pets in his foster home if he is not the FIRST in line to get belly rubs and kisses from his foster mom. Miles also has a touch of separation anxiety but has gotten used to Foster Mom’s work schedule and does fine without her for the 4 hours stretches she is away from him. An adopter who is home most of the time would be best so that Miles can get all the attention he craves and deserves. Miles is a vocal pup and likes to use his voice to “talk” and to sometimes bark. For this reason, we do not think he would be a good fit for apartment living. A fenced yard would definitely be near the top of this boy’s wish list because this young, playful boy LOVES to run and play outside. Miles would LOVE to be an “only fur-child” so that he could have 100% ownership of his person but he would probably also be okay with one other dog who can stand their ground and won’t let Miles take over. Miles seems to prefer adults to small humans so a home with children over age 14 would be best. Miles does great in the car, walks well on a leash, loves to play with toys and will make someone the perfect companion and reward you with constant affection and attention. If you feel in your heart that Miles Archer is the perfect companion for you please apply to adopt him today because this boy is READY FOR HIS FUREVER HOME NOW! If you have any questions for his foster Mom send them to mandymsmith1@yahoo.com or head on over to our website and apply to adopt him today! To date, we have spent over $2000 getting Miles healthy and adoptable and with your help we have received $335 in donations towards his care. If you are able, Miles and UYR would very much appreciate any additional help his supporters can muster. To donate, simply click the PayPal button below. Thank You!

Paddington
Tennessee
Paddington

Paddington is a 4-5 year-old (estimated), 14-pound Maltese-Bichon mix being fostered in Memphis, TN.

Paddington was found as a stray with no microchip, collar or identification that might help him find his way back home so sadly this sweet boy landed in the shelter. When his stray hold was up UYR was asked if we could help find him a great Forever home and even though he is not a Yorkie we were happy to say “Yes!” to this adorable ball of white fluff! He looks a bit like a snuggly Teddy Bear so we decided to name him after one! Hence the name Paddington or “Paddy” for short which we think fits him to a T! While we don’t his breed for sure the consensus between shelter staff, groomer and Vet is Maltese mix; most likely Maltese-Bichon so that makes him a Malti-Chon? Or a Bi-Malti? Whatever you call it, he is 100% adorable and he is going to make some lucky family or person very happy. So far, Paddy is playful, active, gets along with other dogs and all humans. He is not fully house-trained so he will need an adopter with the patience to help him acquire and perfect this skill. Paddington needs to be neutered prior to adoption and this should also help in the house-training arena. If you think you have the perfect forever home to give this cuddly miniature polar bear then apply to adopt him today!

Stella Lovebug
Tennessee
Stella Lovebug

Stella Lovebug is a 6 year old (estimated) 9 pound Yorkie girl being fostered in Ashland City, TN.

Initial Bio 12/16/18: Stella is a beautiful Yorkie who was surrendered by her owner who loved her very much but due to her work schedule, she lovingly sought out a breed-specific rescue group to find someone who could be home with Stella to help her with some things. Stella came from a recent Puppy Mill bust. She was most likely used for breeding over and over again and is just now getting to learn how to be a special part of a family. Puppy Mill Survivors need a bit of extra care and sensitivity. They are mostly timid and apprehensive around humans. They also need LOTS of care and patience in learning how to not potty in the house. She lived out her life in a cage and didn’t have anywhere else to potty except in there. It can be quite overwhelming for them to learn when and where to go potty. Getting used to being clean, having good food to eat, fresh water to drink , and a LOVING HUMAN that wants to pet them and spoil them takes a bit for a Puppy Mill Survivor to adjust to. It is also quite amazing to them to have an entire yard to run around! So much space! It’s even more of a plus when their new Human lets them sleep in the bed beside them! Wow! So much change very quickly after years of the same. Stella Lovebug is up to date on her shots, microchipped , spayed and has had a dental. She is diagnosed with a grade 3/6 heart murmur but no medication needed as of yet. She will visit the doggy Dogtor this week for a checkup to make sure all is still well with her since coming into rescue. Then she can be adopted. The perfect home for Stella Lovebug would be a home with a yard she can run free in, another dog to play with and a stay at home mommy to help care for her special needs and teach her how to just be a spoiled, loved member of the family. No children under 14 please, they may make her a bit nervous. She needs a calm space to feel comfortable in to adjust. If you think you have room in your heart and home for this special Lovebug who still has a lot of love to give, please email Foster mom at mandymsmith1@yahoo.com with any questions. Also if you would like to donate to her care while in rescue please click the PayPal button below. Thank you !

Annabel

Annabel is a beautiful 13 year old, 7 pound sweetie who with her best pal Gracie is being fostered in Fort Worth, TX.

1/14/19 Bio Update: Just look at these two beauties, Gracie, (10 years), and Annabel, (13 years). These girls are a bonded pair about 8 pounds each. Their personalities are very different - Gracie is quiet, cuddly and inquisitive and Annabelle is definitely the alpha with a sweet voice and very active. Both of these girls love hugs and kisses and are ready to say hello when you walk in the door. These girls were recently surrendered by their loving owner who has had them since they were puppies. These girls would do better in a household with older children or no children. They want to be the center of your world since you will be the center of their universe. They already have potential adopters and I will look at additional apps through this Friday. If you are interested, please fill out an adoption application using the link here.

Update 12-19-18: How can you not love this sweet baby! If there is any baby that is a happy fighter...here he is!

Cooper went for a re-check today for his diabetes, kidney and liver values. Sadly, his kidney values have increased once again as well as his glucose and liver. Dr Sam will consult with A&M and see what their recommendations are at this time. We are increasing his insulin from 8 units to 9 units twice a day in the interim. This sweet love has overcome some of the most extreme surgical tumor removals. Nothing makes this baby happier than to be able to play with a toy, attack the sprinkler and get sweet loving belly rubs. This baby who looked 12 months pregnant with 2 huge tumors sat in that shelter with a ball in his mouth waiting for someone to just love him. We didn't walk away from that when they asked for help! Please remember Cooper and United Yorkie Rescue during these holidays, and please make a donation at www.uyr.us. This little guy so deserves a Christmas miracle with answers!!

UPDATE BIO> 09/13/18. Prayers for United Yorkie Rescue COOPER please. We went in this morning for a final checkup and blood work. Ultrasound showed multiple masses on the spleen, so he is undergoing surgery before noon for a splenectomy. Biopsy and blood work will go to our local A&M lab as his blood is also thick with lipids and cannot be broken down in house.

Cooper has been through so much with previous 3lb and 1lb tumor removals, and multiple skin tumors previously removed as well. We need your donations if possible and your prayers for this this adorably sweet sweet little boy!! Please send on our home page to www.uyr.us. Thank you and bless you all

Biopsy and blood work will go to our local A&M lab as his blood is also thick with lipids and cannot be broken down in house.

We need your donations if possible and your prayers for this this adorably sweet, sweet little boy!! Thank you and bless you all. Please use the donate button below.

UPDATE BIO. 08/08/2018: Precious United Yorkie Rescue Cooper is still recouping from surgery on his foot to remove yet another growth. This poor angel has had a 3lb splenetic tumor, a 1lb tumor, along with multiple other body tumors removed previously. Shortly after his last major surgery his liver levels started declining and he became diabetic. We have levels on the rise now but we are still trying to regulate his diabetes, and he was just diagnosed with another spot on his spleen.

He is the sweetest little boy you will ever meet. Never asks for anything but a toy to play and hold. Look at this angel all snuggled up with his snowman. Please, please donate to his care. We have so many medical dogs at www.uyr.us and Cooper has incurred quite a bit of medical with more to go!! Thank you and bless!

UPDATE BIO. 06/23/18. As most of you all know, Cooper had 4lbs of tumors removed from his frail body. We have received the biopsies and he is cancer free!! We have a mixture of many different tumors, thankfully though, they are at a very low risk and all tissues surrounding these are good. We had to go under anesthesia again yesterday afternoon because his penis would not go back into its sleeve from the night before. This poor little man has really been through it. Although he looks pretty rough at the moment, I cannot wait to see his transformation.

Next week he will have the drainage tubes removed and the suture that is closing the sheath to his penis. The following week, we will remove all the sutures from his surgery, and he will stay all day for blood testing as his blood work prior to this surgery was way off on levels.

Thank you for all of your continued prayers and support!!

UPDATE BIO. 06/16/2018. My mind has been on this sweet little guy all day today. Tomorrow, Cooper goes for his third tumor surgery and this one could be very dangerous... even more so than the 3lb tumor we have already taken with some of his spleen. This baby is just the most loving, sweetest guy I have ever fostered.

As you can see in the pics, his stomach is carrying another huge tumor along with all the other small ones that will be removed. If possible, United Yorkie Rescue could sure use your help. If you can possibly donate, please go to www.uyr.us, and on the home page at the bottom click "donate"... these babies lives matter, and because of you we are saving them... bless you!

UPDATE BIO. 06/04/18. Cooper is still recouping from his surgery and on Monday he will go again for 6 additional tumors to be removed, a huge lipoma on the entire right side of his body, and to finally have the diseased rotten teeth extracted as well. His initial report from his 3lb tumor was good... not cancer!!

Although this little guy looks a little rough, he will be such a gorgeous little guy once he is healed.. I cannot wait to see this transformation! I am currently fostering and caring for his medical issues. Once healed and flourishing, he will be fostered by Lynne Patterson Turner, where he will be spoiled to amazing health!

Cooper loves to play, is so loving and is just wonderful with all dogs, cats and people. He will be an amazing Yorkie for someone's loving home!

Update 6/1/18: Hooray, we received good news on the biopsy of the 3 pound "tumor". It isn't malignant! Next, we have to remove the tumor on Cooper's side, so please keep praying for this sweet little guy.

UPDATE BIO. 5/16/2018: Cooper is now home recouping from the massive near 3lb tumor removed. This sweetie is extremely emaciated with every spinal bone raised and every bone very prominent. He is currently on a high calorie diet and I cannot wait to see how this little diamond in the rough shows his true shine! He's such a good sweet, lovable boy too. In spite of his pain with surgery, has never had an accident in the home. H he absolutely LOVES toys, and gets along with all the dogs, cat and humans in the home. Please continue to share this baby's story and if possible United Yorkie Rescue www.uyr.us could sure use your help! I thank you and bless you for loving the rescues!!

UPDATE BIO> 5/15/2018: Cooper had his surgery and the vet removed a nearly 3lb tumor and managed to save some of the spleen! Various little skin tumors were removed as well. This tumor is on its way to A&M lab for a biopsy and we hope to have results in next week. Poor Cooper is in a lot of pain and will stay overnight for antibiotics and pain management. If good in the am, he will come home. In 2 weeks we will go in for surgery once again and the huge lipoma, that takes up his whole right side will be removed, along with some other skin tumors and we will address his along with his nasty teeth as well. Keep those prayers coming... they are working!

Initial Bio. 5/14/2018: Hi everyone, meet precious Cooper. This incredibly adorable little guy sure could use some very strong prayers while we work on his issues! Rescued from the shelter that reached out to us at United Yorkie Rescue Monday morning as a stray, one of our wonderful members had spent about 30 minutes playing with this baby while paperwork was completed and as we found he is just the sweetest little man ever!! Besides total neglect seen everywhere, his stomach is so distended with an enormous mass on his spleen that must be about 2lbs, along with a lipoma that's about a pound of weight in itself on his side. He was rushed to my vet and will stay for emergency surgery to address these tumors in the am. This will be a very dangerous surgery, so please let us help him win his life back. Please keep this angel in your prayers this morning as they do emergency surgery around 8am. Thank you everyone ❤

Gracie

Annabel and Gracie
Texas
Gracie

Gracie is a 10 year old, 7 pound little beauty who is being fostered with Annabel, her bonded pal in Fort Worth, TX.

1/14/19 Initial Bio Just look at these two beauties, Gracie, (10 years), and Annabel, (13 years). These girls are a bonded pair about 8 pounds each. Their personalities are very different - Gracie is quiet, cuddly and inquisitive and Annabelle is definitely the alpha with a sweet voice and very active. Both of these girls love hugs and kisses and are ready to say hello when you walk in the door. These girls were recently surrendered by their loving owner who has had them since they were puppies. These girls would do better in a household with older children or no children. They want to be the center of your world since you will be the center of their universe. They already have potential adopters and I will look at additional apps through this Friday. If you are interested, please go onto our website at www.unitedyorkierescue.org and fill out an adoption application.


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

01/19/18. UPDATE BIO: I've spent the last year healing my sweet sweet Hank in ways that some hearts can't even imagine. I've soul searched if he could even be adopted. I've placed him with our foster Marene to try to prepare not only him, but myself, for that day if he could be away. This past weekend, I finally had chosen a potential adopter for a meet and greet. The applicant sounded absolutely wonderful.Then, I never heard from her. Honestly, I was shocked and I started to doubt what I was doing. Monday night she finally reached out to me and honestly I cried. She turned away from this adoption, but she did it for the love and protection of Hank. She had shared her excitement about this possible baby to an acquaintance that was Hanks worst nightmare!

For over a year, I've nurtured this sweet abused baby and I was wondering why God was stopping me when this potential adopter never called. And then again when I heard the reason why was he just supposed to be in rescue furever... not that I couldn't imagine that. Then that same night I had the most beautiful email come to me and I knew God's plan was not only protecting this sweet baby boy but He was showing me his possible purfect applicant had already been there and we needed to talk.

I just hung up the phone and I knew in the first 2 minutes of my conversation that I have finally found this babies furever. She and her hubby don't know it yet, but Im crying because I know this journey is about to end with the most amazing life, full of tears and love for this boy. Sunday after Church, maybe a day for celebration for the love of Hank. Paws crossed for my heart and his! 💕

UPDATE BIO 08/24/18. Happy happy happy gotcha day for United Yorkie Rescue!! This adorable little baby was broken and bruised from head to toe at the hands of an evil fiance. The best day of his life was when the woman who loved him so much for 8yrs handed him over to me at the ER. Here we are a year later, and we are just now preparing Hank for the adoption world.

United Yorkie Rescue spared no expense helping Hank heal. We are currently preparing sleepovers with fosters, as this babies scars run deep emotionally with separation. So it's time to open the doors for him. Once again, this baby had over 12k in medical and we so appreciate everyone of you who help us with their medical needs. Your donations can be placed at www.uyr.us.

Please, if you are interested in Hank, he will have specific needs. He will need someone who is home the majority of the day. Someone who doesn't mind that Hank wears a belly band since the beating he took caused a stricture and he may leak. Personally, i think he looks adorable in them! Someone who will let him be close until he feels comfortable enough to choose that comfy doggie bed on the floor, someone who will allow him to snuggle with you in your bed until he's ready to choose somewhere else. Whomever we choose, you will be blessed with a baby that will not leave your side, that will play toys with you and loves other dogs, is great around cats, children, men and women. Please feel free to fill out an application on our website. Thank you for loving our babies... Bless you!

UPDATE BIO. 07/22/18. All of you following this sweet nugget know that Hank was a victim of violent abuse. He's been in rescue since September last year. After three surgeries, numerous tests and repairs, Hank is finally growing bone on his shattered femur. We are ready to remove his plate for his final orthopedic surgery!!! Now Hank still has issues with his bladder,that was damaged as well, when a vicious human attacked him. Hank just leaks due to a stricture in his bladder, however, a simple belly band is such an easy fix as he is 100% potty trained. Emotionally, Hank will always want his future furever mommy and or daddy close by... his emotional scars run deep, but they are readily fixed with much love and security.

We are currently looking into this last fix which may take me back to A&M, who besides my vets at Refinery Road, have been instrumental in this sweet baby's surgeries. Hank's medical expenses have been one of the highest bills that United Yorkie Rescue has encountered, (more than $10,000) but who could say no to this sweet angel who was bruised from head for to toe. If you are able to donate to Hank's high medical or his final ortho surgery or any of our many medical fosters we would be so appreciative. If that's not possible, please share his story. If you can, please use the donate button under this bio. Thank you and bless you!!

Update Bio. 05/14/18. Hank is doing fairly well. He will get his stiches out this week. We were originally on 6 different meds and have gone down to 4. His leg is still pretty painful but he's getting better each day. In 8 wks we will go back to A&M for I hope his last surgery. This will entail removing the plate and hopefully we will have bone growth at this time! Emotionally, sadly, Hank is still having a very hard time with separatiom. It took me months to start to fix that... I'm back at the beginning and have him back on Prosac as well. This sweet baby is just so loving. He deserves his furever happy and I will be certain he gets that, especially with people that love him like you ❤. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.

5/2/18: Hank pupdate: Hank was seen by the specialists at Texas A&M Vet Hospital and underwent extensive testing again especially due to some Neuro issues, bladder issues and further evaluation of his leg which is very complicated. Hank's femur was shattered in 7 segments... so we have 7 screws along with a plate. The bone around the middle screws is disintegrating. This is either from the body saying we no longer need this bone since we have this plate to provide support, or his bone is just not rejuvenating. Sadly, trying to fix this might take 2 stages. We had 3 options, but bottom line we are choosing to remove the 3 middle screws, pack in bone generating material while keeping the plate secured at the top and the bottom. Also, the surgeon will try to fix the patella. If it's at all possible they may try to remove this larger plate and attach a smaller plate. If not, we will be looking at another surgery again! Surgery will be Thursday morning and Hank will be there until at least Saturday. This is so hard on him emotionally... his separation anxiety is the saddest I have ever witnessed. We'll all be very anxious to get him past this next hurdle and get him home where he can rest and be with foster mom.

Update 3/30/18: From a body full of bruises and broken bones to now. We still have one more hurdle with this adorable little guy and it will require breaking his leg for the final fix. This is almost unbearable for me to fathom after all this sweet boy had been through. Hanks next surgery will be the costliest one after all of his medical and surgeries to date. The ortho center at Texas A&M refer to Hank as a unique case. They will need to remove the plate and screws, rebreak his leg where the deformity is, place a smaller appliance on, repair his locked patella and torn ACL. UYR is looking at a cost of up to $5000. I'm asking, maybe pleading at this point, as I personally have 4 medical rescues in my care, but this baby boy is worth every penny.

Hank still holds emotional scars with his fear of separation, but after all this little man had endured, he is just the absolute most loving baby ever. He will eventually be someone's pride and joy that will be rewarded back with so much love. Please, please donate, share and pray for this little boy. As always, thank you and bless you all!

Update Bio. 03/08/18. We were so blessed to have had the opportunity to get Hank to Texas A&M Small Animal Hospital. There were many more players involved, but I wanted to thank Dr Grimes (Internal Medicine)and Tierney for their constant dedication in diagnosing and helping us get answers for this sweet boy.

Bladder: we are still waiting for bile acids results but we do know Hank does still does have a resistant UTI. Cultures are still growing so in the next few days he will be placed on the proper antibiotic to address this issue. We may have a sphincter issue that is not responding properly causing his dripping, but we believe that by keeping him on Proin along with getting a grip on this UTI maybe his solution. There is a defect in his bladder, but they do not believe it is necessary to do the surgery.

Siezures: We will start Kepra

Leg: Hanks patella cannot be moved and is at a 4 out of 4 so will require surgery. His leg has also healed wrong, so the orthopedic thinks we will more than likely have to remove the plate and screws, rebreak the leg, and put a different plate on in its place. This breaks my heart of course.

I'm waiting for an email regarding his discharge and plans and will address again but i wanted to let you all know about his findings and that we finally have answers. Prayers for this little abused baby ❤😔

Bio Update 01/27/18. UNITED YORKIE RESCUE and I need help and prayers for these two precious United Yorkie Rescue boys that have been in the limelight of our site recently and in the past. Next week, I have both Hank and Jasper going for major surgery.

Hank, as you may recall, was horribly abused resulting in a shattered femur and a bladder injury. We are going back into surgery due to his lameness and bladder issues. His surgery will require removing his plates and screws and repairing his ACL and patella. The surgeon is also going to do a contrast study of his bladder while is under and hopefully repair the bladder or possibly have to create a new opening so that this little boy can urinate without the struggles he is having. He was severely abused at the hands of an evil man, and this poor angel has endured so much emotional trauma, as well. Hank’s surgery will be very expensive, but this sweet baby deserves his life without pain.

These are two of the most deserving little boys in our rescue, and I am asking you to please donate, share and pray for these sweet boys. I thank you from the bottom of my heart and I know these babies if they could would thank you as well. Bless you all!

Update 11/18/17:

So much has been going on in this precious boys’ life that it’s time to update! We have reached the 8 week mark since Hank’s surgery to repair his shattered femur, and removal of stones that entered the bladder due to severe abusive trauma. We still have no use of his leg and Hank is dependent on belly bands due to constant incontinence. We have met with 2 vets and have received information about what is happening with this sweet baby and have come up with a plan for a final fix…God willing!

In repairing Hanks femur with the plate, Hank has developed a Grade 5 out 5 lameness with drawer sign and a patella luxation. We need to give his femur at least 30 more days for bone growth then go in to remove the plate and perform lateral suture of the cruciate ligament (ACL) and patella repair. We will also if necessary repair any blockage or stricture involving the ureter.

In the meantime, we will see the vet and perform some tests to analyze what is going on with this baby’s bladder so if surgery is needed, it will be performed all at once so as not to put this angel through another procedure. This could include a contrast study of the bladder, but if this particular test is necessary, it will also be done prior to his surgical repair to his leg and bladder issues AGAIN!

Emotionally, Hank is healing well I think. He no longer cries hysterically because I have left the room and I am out of sight…he whines softly lol. He is truly the most loving little man. He literally rolls his little body over and pushes his body and head into you so hard because he cannot get close enough!

I literally cry, like I’m doing now, just writing this knowing this little guy must go through this surgery again. I feel at times he must think I’m causing his pain, when this was all at the hand of a monster and all I just want for him is to be pain free and healed.

I ask you to keep him in your prayers and pray for good bone growth n these next 30 days. I also ask you to consider once again supporting him through a donation through our website www.uyr.us as once again, this surgery and testing will not be cheap, but look at this baby…he is worth every penny to fix what that monster did. Thank you all…bless you all…have an amazing Thanksgiving! Hugs~~Susan and Hank~~

Initial Bio 9/20/17:

It's so sad when the only pics I have to introduce this baby to the rescue look like this. So everyone meet Hank. Hank is an owner surrender by his mommy. After a bath by her fiance, Hank slipped and fell, and she found him holding up his leg. She thought maybe this was patella issues then over the weekend the bruising and swelling settled in. She began calling vets for pricing to get him seen but financially she just couldn't afford the cost so she reached out to rescue. We met at the ER since it was after hours for vets so we could see what we might be dealing with. Tears flowing, she said goodbye to her baby of 8yrs.

Hank was taken to the back as I filled out his paperwork. The vet came in and asked about the auto accident Hank was in...sadly what I had seen in the pictures were being realized. Hanks femur was shattered and broken, her words, "this is extreme blunt force trauma... no slip in the tub, and he may need amputation."

I collected myself, collected this poor broken baby and both he and I cried the whole hour drive home avid through the night. Rescue has an evil side. I've seen the mill babies, the abandoned ones, the sick ones, the list goes on and on, but to see evil hurts to the soul. Look at these eyes, who does this!!!???!! Why???

Thursday, we see an ortho specialist to see if we can save sweet Hank's leg. He's spending the night at Dr. Sam's so his pain can be managed along with antibiotics to fight bone infection and along with medication for his swelling and bruising. Needless to say, we are only two days in and Hanks care and his medical is going to be sooo overwhelming. Please, please give to this babies medical. He will live, God willing, but he has a long road to go and we need you and your support and love and your shares. God bless you and thank you!

Meshawn
Virginia
Meshawn

Meshawn is a 10 year old, 12 pound Yorkie boy being fostered in south central Virginia.

Meshawn comes to UYR from a loving owner who fell on hard times financially and was unable to care for him. They worked lots which meant Meshawn was left alone for 12 hours each day so they reached out to UYR to help find this boy the forever home that fits him perfectly! Meshawn is said to be a sweet and loving boy. He has been a good boy so far in his foster home and gets along with his pack of small fur-siblings. Meshawn is not fully house-trained so he will need a patient owner to help him learn. He rides well in the car and seems to enjoy it. He has not seen the Vet in a very long time so Monday he will be off to have a physical exam, blood work, etc. so we can see where this sweetie is medically. He is also in need of a grooming. Stay tuned for updates on this sweetie as we get to know him better. As always, donations are much appreciated so if you can, please donated by clicking the PayPal button below. Thank You!


To date we've spent $672.80 on Meshawn's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Meet Addie. Addie is a 14-year-old, 6 lb girl being fostered in WV.

THANK YOU TO ADDIE LIVINIA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Karry Rogers, Angie Cagle, Rita Sue Browning, Suzanne Oliver, Barbara Miller, Barbara and Jeffrey Gere

INITIAL BIO.09/29/18. Addie found herself at fourteen years old with no home. Her owners got her as a puppy and are now moving to a no pet apartment. But that's ok because United Yorkie Rescue believes this girl deserves a retirement fit for a queen. She arrived with her tiny cheetah coat and her fluffy blanket from home. It was sad to see a tiny senior in this condition, dropped at a shelter, scared, then a four hour transport to her foster home.

Addie just got home, had her bath, cheetah coat and blanket in the wash, and she will soon get a nice dinner. She will get a fluffy new bed where she can relax and get a good night sleep. Addie met several of her fur siblings this evening and they are already a family. It was sweet to watch them accept each other, respectfully.

Addie is going to the vet asap for severe dental disease. She may be deaf and going blind. We will have a full report soon. Please consider donating to Addie's vetting. This lovely senior lady deserves a happy and healthy retirement life filled with love.

Merry

Meet Merry, our Christmas miracle. Merry is a 14-year-old, 5 lb. girl being fostered in WV.

THANK YOU TO MERRY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Teresa Beament, Jeffrey Merrell, Jane Montford, Angie Cagle, Sandy Rodabaugh, Carol Nelson, Lynne Turner, Karry Rogers, April Delaney, Kathie Stander, Bonnie Vaupel, Debra St. Clair

INITIAL BIO. 12/11/18. Welcome Merry, our Christmas Yorkie, to United Yorkie Rescue. Merry has quite a story that may turn out to be a Christmas miracle. United Yorkie Rescue takes in many Yorkies every year, and we get them ready for adoption. But there is another part of the rescue that touches us all. It's the little ones we get that are desperately clinging to life.

Merry, 14 years old, blind, and only four pounds, was brought into the Brooklyn New York shelter, starving, emaciated, and unable to walk. The vet records noted her condition was guarded to poor. The shelter reached out to us asking to help this little soul. Honestly, we thought she was coming here to pass in a warm safe place. Merry made the seven hour journey and she never stood. She got home, got a bath, a bed, and a warm dinner. Foster mom left her in her bed in a quiet room to feed the other fosters. Upon returning, there was feeble little Merry, about three feet from her bed, making little tiny prancing steps!

Merry got another meal before before retiring for the night. She goes to the vet tomorrow and our goal is to keep her comfortable. We don't know how this tiny soul ended up abandoned on the streets of New York in the freezing winter. What we do know is that we are dedicated to making her retirement the best part of her life. Please consider helping little Merry, our Christmas rescue. We may not be able to adopt out this little girl so she will rely only on donations. On her freedom ride home, Frank Sinatra was singing "Have yourself a Merry little Christmas, may your heart be light. From now on your troubles will be out of sight." Merry became her name. She is safe for the rest of her life.


To date we've spent $205.88 on Merry's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $400.00 in donations.

Meet Serafina. Serafina is a 6-year-old, 5 lb girl being fostered in WV.

THANK YOU TO SERAFINA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Trula Montgomery

INITIAL BIO. 12/11/18. Welcome little Serafina to our rescue. This little sweetheart is six years old. She came from a loving home but went through a few personality changes after she had puppies. Serafina became less tolerant of children and teenagers when there were friends visiting. She became nippy but never bit anyone.

Her foster home is kid free and she is doing well. She gets along with all dogs and is very affectionate to her new foster mom. Serafina is house-trained and pad trained. She is rather vocal at times so a house is best for her. She made dog friends the first night so she may like another dog in the family. She is getting spayed, vaccines, and she will be ready to look for her new family. She is used to having someone home with her most of the day and she does seem happiest when foster mom is with her.


To date we've spent $589.51 on Serafina's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $25.00 in donations.

Meet Zee. Zee is a 4 lb, 4-year-old boy being fostered in WV.

THANK YOU TO ZEE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Brenda Clark, Bruce Atkinson

INITIAL BIO. 09/06/18.Zee came to United Yorkie Rescue last week, and he has already captured the hearts of everyone he meets. This little guy is only four years old, as sweet and affectionate as he could be, and is very well mannered. His owner told his foster that he didn't like other dogs but foster homes don't come without dogs. Luckily foster mom has had training from a great dog behaviorist. Zee met every fur sibling outside, one at a time, easiest ones first.

After a few words between the boys, within five minutes, he was part of the pack. That night he joined the pile of Yorkies on foster mom's lap. Zee rides well in the car and has perfect leash skills. He will need a home with no young children. He's a little afraid of foster mom's big dog but we will work on that. Watch for updates on this little guy.


To date we've spent $170.23 on Zee's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $200.00 in donations.
