Arkansas
AR Maggie Mae

TN Maggie Mae is a soon to be 8 year old, 12.6 pound Yorkie princess being fostered in Bryant, AR.

Well UYR fans, it's almost Halloween and look who just hopped into Arkansas! By the look of those adorable ears, we'd might think this is the Easter Bunny arriving a bit early/late this year. But no..... it’s just our adorable (and little bit chubby) Maggie Mae! Maggie will celebrate her 8th birthday on 10/15 and she is such a sweet girl. Maggie Mae has had a single owner ever since she was purchased as a puppy from a pet store. Her owner has to move across country to care for an aging family member and the residence does not allow pets at all so UYR was contacted to find Maggie Mae a perfect forever home.

Maggie is a very well-behaved, sweet and compliant girl. She is used to being an only dog, so she is trying to find her "place" in her foster home pack. She wasn't on the healthiest diet before her rescue which has led to her being a couple of pounds over her ideal body weight. But she is being gradually switched to a healthier diet and increasing her activity and is planning to be in her "skinny jeans" by Thanksgiving if not sooner! Maggie Mae is obedience trained, loves to play fetch and has the most adorable face and expressions! She loves being a "couch dog" and being close to her person whether it is to cuddle or play.

Maggie developed problems with "dribble" early on in her life. She takes a medication called Proin twice daily that really helps with that. She has been on this since she was three years old. Any potential owners need to know that Maggie Mae will need to be on this medication twice daily for the rest of her life.

Maggie has just arrived in rescue, so we are just getting to know her. She will see the Doctor soon to make sure she is in tip top shape and also get all of her annual care and a full physical exam including blood work. If you think you might be this sweet girls PAWFECT PERSON, then go ahead and complete and application to adopt or email foster Mom for additional information. As always, we greatly appreciate any contributions towards her care. You can help by simply clicking the PayPal button below and THANK YOU!


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

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.

Please check back for updates as my Foster Family gets to know me better!

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. 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.

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. 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!

I am certainly a handsome fella

Biscuit

MEET BISCUIT! He is a 6 year old handsome Yorkshire terrier who weighs a chunky 19.1 lbs. Biscuit is being fostered in Freeport, FL.

THANK YOU TO BISCUIT'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Dannielle Turner

UPDATED BIO 09/20/2018: Biscuit has had quite an interesting life – prior being adopted by his surrendering owner, he was living in a car for many months with someone who was obviously unable to care for him.

Biscuit has settled into his foster home and is enjoying life with five dogs and two senior humans. He has a fenced yard that he is able to play in and is working at losing some of his chubby weight. He now weighs 19.1 lbs and is getting regular exercise, and foster mom has put him on a new food that will help him lose weight.

Biscuit likes to sleep in his bed on the floor next to his foster mom and he attaches himself quickly as your best friend. The best part is he is totally house-trained! Biscuit has seen the vet for a well-dog visit and he passed with flying colors. Biscuit’s perfect home would be one where his people are home a lot since he always wants to be with you. If he is left alone, he gets anxious and is determined to go with you everywhere! Biscuit would also love to share his home with some well-behaved children – he loves children and loves to play. He enjoys rides in the car and walks on his leash, although he initially gets over-excited and you have to remind him to stay calm. He is leash-trained, but needs some reinforcement on leash manners since his surrendering owner was unable to correct his leash-pulling.

Biscuit is a very sweet and playful dog who would love an active family with children to keep him entertained. No cats though! Biscuit wants a forever home that doesn’t move around, as living in a car wasn't the best of homes for this sweet and loving boy. Might you be that person that can accept the huge amount of love he has to share?

INITIAL BIO 09/17/2018: Biscuit has had quite an interesting life – prior being adopted by his surrendering owner, he was living in a car for many months with someone who was obviously unable to care for him.

Biscuit is a very sweet and playful dog who would love an active family and some children to keep him entertained. No cats though! He is very persistent about wanting to play with the cats, but perhaps another dog close to his age and size. Biscuit loves to eat, but is overweight at 20 lbs and once he sees the vet, we can determine what his healthy weight should be. Even at this chubby weight, one of his favorite things to do is to be held in his person’s lap. His foster mom will be working with him by exercising him regularly and reducing the amount of food he is eating.

Biscuit loves car rides and even arrived with his own life jacket in the hopes that he will be adopted by someone who loves the water as much as he does! He is leash-trained, but needs some reinforcement on leash manners since his surrendering owner was unable to correct his leash-pulling. BONUS! Biscuit is house-trained – what a smart boy! Once he learns which door he should go out of, he will go to the door and bark to be taken out. He loves to sleep in the same room as his person.

I am looking and feeling so much better.

Gina

Gina is 8 years old and weighs 6 lbs. Sadly, sweet Gina tested positive for heartworm disease. She is being fostered in Orlando, FL.

THANK YOU TO GINA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Lazara Hierro, Norma Dorsett, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Steven Opetaia-Williamson, Angie Cagle, Karry Rogers, Steven Opetaia-Williamson, Holly Stavis, Linda Neilson, Irene and Peter Havas

UPDATED BIO 09/04/2018: Gina is one of 25 dogs pulled in April, 2018 by a sister rescue group from a horrendous hoarding/backyard breeding situation. She is one of the 10 dogs that UYR was able to bring into our group. Sadly, 4 of the 10 dogs tested positive for heartworm disease and Sweet Gina was one of them.

Here’s what Gina had to say recently:

Hi again, Gina here. The four-week wait after my last heartworm treatment is over. YAY! I've had the test to see if there were any baby heartworms. Drum roll ……. the test was negative. Hooray for me! I'm so ready to chase lizards and squirrels, so they better watch out!

I'm scheduled to have a dental cleaning and have several, small mammary tumors removed on September 11th. About ten days after that, I will be ready for my new home.

I've figured out what kind of furever home would be best for me – here’s my list so that anybody interested in sweet little me knows what I need:

- A home with a mom/dad who is retired or works from home. In other words, a home with at least one stay-at-home parent. I don’t like to be left alone for long periods of time.

- I would really like to have a doggie companion, who is close to my age or size. It could be a fur-brother or a fur-sister. I would also like for them to be sweet and calm, just like me.

- I would really love to have a fenced yard so I can run and chase squirrels and lizards.

- NO CHILDREN. Adults only. No exceptions will be made.

Note from Foster Mom and UYR: If you have been moved by Gina's story and her courage and resilience, please consider making a donation to UYR to cover vetting expenses and support our organization as we continue the long process of rehabilitating these precious little dogs. Heartworm Treatment is very expensive and will cost approximately $800-$1,000 per dog. Please consider a donation to help UYR continue to rescue and rehabilitate other dogs with heartworms.

Here’s what Gina had to say recently:

Hi again, Gina here. I have wonderful news to share - I've finished my heartworm treatment! Yeah for me! I'm not quite ready for adoption, though. For the next four weeks, I have to remain calm...no running, jumping or playing and no chasing lizards and squirrels. Darn!

In 4 weeks I will be re-tested to make sure those nasty heartworms have been killed. After that, I will have a dental cleaning and have several mammary tumors removed. My foster mom says I should be ready to go to my furever home sometime in September.

Since I have been with my foster mom, I have learned to do my business outside and to use a pee-pee-pad if I can't get outside. I'm doing really well, but sometimes I may have an accident. Oops! I'm trying really hard to get it right.

Here’s what Gina had to say recently:

Hi, Gina here with an update.

If you have been following my journey, you know that earlier this month I needed emergency surgery. I was not cared for very well while in the hoarder’s home, and I got a nasty infection of my uterus and had to have surgery to save my life. I'm happy to say I've healed very well. Because of the surgery, I had to wait until I was all better to begin my heartworm treatment. Two weeks ago I received the first of three injections to get rid of these nasty heartworms. My dogtor said I tolerated the injection quite well. I think she was surprised that I did so well – and so am I!

Foster Mom says that I'm supposed to stay calm and not run around and jump while going through treatment. Hmph! Easier said than done. I feel so good after having my emergency surgery that it's very difficult for me to be calm – and quiet. I want to run, chase lizards and squirrels and play, but my Foster Mom has to remind me that I can't do these fun things until after the treatment is completed. All right.... I'll stay calm, but it's so hard to do. Just wait until I'm all better. You better watch out lizards and friends of lizards, I'm coming for you!

My last two injections will be done in about a month. Then a month after that, I'll be re-tested to see if those bad, bad heartworms are all gone. If all goes according to plan, I may be ready for my furever home in September. Keep your fingers crossed and say a prayer that things will continue to go well. Gina out.

PLEASE NOTE the following special circumstances:

- Due to Gina’s small size, she cannot be adopted into a home with children of any age; she needs an adult-only home. No exceptions will be made.

- Adoption applications are being accepted for Gina; however, please keep in mind that she has a couple more months of heartworm treatment before she can go into her forever home.

- Please be patient with our process in considering adoption applications for Gina as our primary interest is supporting her during her heartworm treatment. Our primary goal at this time is getting Gina healthy so that she can continue to enjoy a wonderful life in a loving, forever home.

- UYR is reaching out to our friends, supporters and generous donors in the hopes of raising the thousands of dollars it will cost our group to get Gina healthy, as well as the other dogs from the same hoarding/backyard breeding situation. They all needed to have their vaccinations updated, neutered or spayed and extensive labs had to be done on each one.

UPDATED BIO 06/03/2018: Gina is one of 26 dogs pulled recently by a sister rescue group from a horrendous hoarding/backyard breeding situation. She is one of the 10 dogs that UYR was able to bring into our group.

Here’s what Gina had to say recently:

Hi all, Gina here again. Boy-oh-Boy, did I ever have a really bad week. I had to have emergency surgery this past Friday morning. The dogtor said I had something called Pyometra, and that it was bad. All I know is that I felt really really terrible. See, I had lots of beautiful babies in my former breeding situation, and that’s why this happened to me. I later found out that Pyometra means my uterus was full of pus and I could have died. I am a smart girlie so I googled Pyometra and here’s what it is: “Pyometra is defined as an infection in the uterus. Pyometra is considered a serious and life-threatening condition that must be treated quickly and aggressively. Pyometra is a secondary infection that occurs as a result of hormonal changes in the female's reproductive tract.” I’m so very happy that my foster mom took me in really quick to the vet or I could have died. What a terrible thought.

My foster mom was so worried about me. She was so relieved when the dogtor called her and said I was out of surgery and starting to wake up. My foster mom was so happy to see me when she picked me up Friday afternoon. She hasn't let me out of her sight since. I am so happy she loves me so much and takes such super great care of me.

I'm just starting to feel much better today. But, my unexpected surgery means that my heartworm treatment had to be pushed back a little. I'll start the treatment injections on June 21st. I'll tell ‘ya, I'm not happy about getting shots, but the sooner I get this done, the sooner I could be furever yours. If you have read all of this, it must mean that you may be a little bit interested in me. Who wouldn’t be? I mean, I’m really cute, right?

PLEASE NOTE the following special circumstances:

- Due to Gina’s small size, she cannot be adopted into a home with children of any age; she needs an adult-only home. No exceptions will be made.

- Adoption applications are being accepted for Gina; however, please keep in mind that because she has tested positive for heartworms, she must endure 2-3 months of heartworm treatment before she can go into her forever home. UYR follows the recommended treatment provided by the American Heartworm Society. Heartworm Treatment is very expensive and will cost approximately $800-$1,000 per dog. Currently, 4 out of the 10 dogs taken in with Gina tested positive for heartworms. Please consider a donation to help UYR continue to rescue and rehabilitate other dogs with heartworms.

- Please be patient with our process in considering adoption applications for Gina as our primary interest is supporting her during her heartworm treatment. Our primary goal at this time is getting this sweet girl healthy so that she can continue to enjoy a wonderful life in a loving, forever home.

- UYR is reaching out to our friends, supporters and generous donors in the hopes of raising the thousands of dollars it will cost our group to get Gina healthy, as well as the 9 other dogs from the same hoarding/backyard breeding situation. They not only need to have their vaccinations updated, be neutered or spayed and have extensive labs, but they also need to emotionally heal from years of neglect. For the ones that are HW+, they will soon begin treatment which will last 4-5 months. If you have been moved by Gina's story and her courage and resilience, please consider making a donation to UYR to cover vetting expenses and support our organization as we begin the long process of rehabilitating these precious little dogs.

UPDATED BIO 04/22/2018: Gina is one of 26 dogs pulled recently by a sister rescue group from a horrendous hoarding/backyard breeding situation. She is one of the 10 dogs that UYR was able to bring into our group.

Here’s what Gina had to say recently:

Hi again, it's Gina. I'm settling into my new home with my foster mom and two fur-sisters. A very nice lady came to my foster mom's house and gave me a wonderful haircut. I feel so much better. She must have cut a half pound of hair off me – that was the first haircut I can ever remember having that felt so good and she was so gentle with me. I liked it.

I sure do look and feel so much better, but I'm still a very sick little girl. When the nice people at UYR rescued me and a lot of my friends from a terrible home in South Florida, nobody knew that 4 of us would be heartworm positive. I was sad to find out that I was one of the 4 that had heartworms. My foster mom took me to the vet the day after I was rescued and he told us the bad news. Not only that, the vet said I had hookworms and infections in my ears and eyes. I had to take some yukky medicine for the hookworms. I'm also getting eye drops and ear medicine every day.

Now about the heartworms. I have to take pills twice a day now that I have started my heartworm treatment. Foster mom said that after two months of swallowing those darned pills every day, then I will start getting shots! OUCH! She said that it will take four months for all this to happen. Yikes. It's not going to be fun, but I know I am in good hands with my foster mom and she'll make it all right. She is gentle with me and holds me and kisses me and tells me all the time how beautiful I am and what a good girl I am. I like that. I have never had gentle hands touch me before I was rescued. Catch ya later. Gina, out.

INITIAL BIO 04/12/2018: Gina is one of 25 dogs pulled by a sister rescue group from a horrendous hoarding/backyard breeding situation today. She is one of the 10 dogs that UYR was able to bring into United Yorkie Rescue. All of these dogs were terribly neglected and medically-needy and were all living in an unsafe, unsanitary and over-crowded home with very little human interaction. All of these dogs appear to be very sweet and docile, even though many of them may have hidden medical issues that we are not yet aware of.

PLEASE NOTE: Gina had her first vet check, and sadly - she tested positive for heartworms. This means that Gina must endure HW treatment that is very hard on any dog, and it will be even harder since Gina and the other dogs rescued are currently all in poor physical condition. She will be in her foster home for up to 4 months while she is undergoing HW treatment. So far, 4 out of the 10 dogs from this neglectful situation have tested positive for heartworm disease. It is hoped that the rest of the dogs from this backyard breeder who have not yet seen the vet will not be positive for heartworms. Prayers are appreciated and donations will be gladly accepted.

Gina and the other precious little dogs did not come with any vetting information, and all need to be altered. They are all in poor condition, and many will need longer to recuperate from the horrible neglect than others. All have rotten mouths and most of them will likely lose all of their teeth. UYR is committed to caring for these dogs and providing them with a safe, compassionate and loving foster home, while at the same time letting them know the life ahead of them will be full of wonderful things.

UYR is reaching out to our friends, supporters and generous donors in the hopes of raising the thousands of dollars it will cost our group to make sure all of these dogs’ medical needs are taken care of, as well as their emotional needs. If you have been moved by Gina's story and her courage and resilience, please consider making a donation to UYR to cover vetting expenses.

I want to feel better

I will love you forever
Florida
Jill

Jill is a 7-1/2 year old 9.5 lb sweet yorkie girl. She is being fostered in Leesburg, FL.

THANK YOU TO JILL'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Roni Greenwood

UPDATED BIO 09/08/2018: Sweet Jill has had quite a week since she arrived at her foster home. She had a thorough wellness exam and blood work done the day after she arrived. Besides the hair loss due to fleabite dermatitis, Jill had infections in both her ears and eyes. She is currently being treated for everything, including the hair loss. She had blood work done and it was found that she was severely anemic with low protein levels. Her foster parent were not surprised she is anemic. She spends a majority of her time in her crate sleeping and resting. Jill is currently on antibiotics for the yeast infections in her ears and on her skin and on a special dog tonic to help with her anemia.

Jill had her spay and dental on Friday 9/7 along with updated blood work to see how she was getting along. She only lost 5 teeth and all went well with her spay. The good news is that her protein levels are now normal and her red blood count went up 4 points, though still below normal - meaning she is still anemic. Jill continues to spend most of her time in her crate, with the door open where she rests and naps. Sometimes she comes out to be with us. At those times her little tail is wagging like crazy. She loves to be petted and cuddled and loves a belly rub.

Jill is so happy to have people who are taking care of her. She is getting better and better each day, but her healing and recovery will take time. She will be on the antibiotics for the infections and the Pet Tonic drops for the anemia for another week at least. Jill returns to the vet on Friday the 14th to have her stitches removed and another blood test to see if her red blood count is rising. Her hair is slowing coming back in and she is no longer scratching. It will take time for Jill to get all her health back, but we know with love and care she will be a beautiful happy dog one day soon.

It is hard to know what kind of forever home Jill needs since her little personality has not yet come out. Once she is no longer anemic her foster parents know they will get to know the real little Jill and know what she needs in a forever family. It will be such a great day to get to know the healthy, happy true Jill.

If you wish to donate towards Jill’s care she will be so grateful for the love and kindness, and as always United Yorkie Rescue will always be more than grateful for the help you give to all our pups.

Initial bio 8-30-18. Jill arrived at her foster home today. She was great in the car ride to her foster home. She had no problem meeting the other dogs in her foster home and fit right in. Jill's former owner was not able to care for her and Jill has some medical issues that have to be taken care of right away. She has hair loss most likely due to fleas. She was given a Capstar as soon as she arrived at her foster home to start killing those pesky fleas and to help Jill stop scratching. This sweet girl needs all her vaccinations, her spay, blood work done, and a heartworm test, as well as a complete doggie physical check up. Jill will be seeing the vet very soon and we will know lots more about her. Check back on Jill soon after her visit to her vet.


To date we've spent $558.26 on Jill's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $10.00 in donations.
Please donate!

Lily is happy in her foster home

I am waiting on my forever home
Florida
Lily

Lily is 6 years old and weighs 9.4 lbs. Sadly, Sweet Lily tested positive for heartworm disease. She is being fostered in St. Augustine, FL.

THANK YOU TO LILY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Trula Montgomery, Karry Rogers, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Holly Stavis, Daniel Casco

UPDATED BIO 09/06/2018: Hi everyone! It’s Lily with great news. I had my surgery to remove my mammary tumors and spay, and I came through with “flying colors” as my vet told my foster parents. I understand there were a lot of prayers being said for me. I thank each and every one of you for caring about me. In a few weeks, I will have my teeth cleaned and they will be bright and shiny. Oh, and the bonus is that I will finally have nice-smelling breath.

Foster Mom feels that Lily really does need another doggie companion in her forever home, one that is close to her size and weight, who can be a companion for her. So, please consider this before applying to adopt this precious little girlie.

Here’s a few words from Lily’s foster mom:

Lily is doing really good. Now that she is feeling better, she is beginning to enjoy the pleasures and joys of being a beloved companion dog. Now you must remember she could not walk previously during the time she was going through her heart worm treatment and could only watch the other dogs go for a nice walk. Well, we took Lily for a walk the other day. It was so wonderful to see anxiously wait to get her harness on, and to watch her walking right along with the other dogs. What an accomplishment this was since it has been a five-month wait to see this happen. Because of our wonderful donors, Lily is heartworm-free and on her way to becoming a happy and lovely companion dog in her furever home……….

UPDATED BIO 08/07/2018/2018: Lily is one of 25 dogs pulled by a sister rescue group four months ago from a horrendous hoarding/backyard breeding situation. She is one of the 10 dogs that United Yorkie Rescue brought into our group. Sadly, 4 of the 10 dogs tested positive for heartworm disease and Sweet Lily was one of them.

Lily is very smart and is now house-trained, which is a big deal for a dog that has known nothing in her life but an over-crowded hoarding/backyard breeding situation. Lily is becoming a very loving little girl who wants to be with her person(s) all the time now. She is still a bit on the shy side with strangers, but is slowly learning that the humans in her life now will not harm her. She now realizes that she has known nothing but a loving and compassionate touch since she has been in her foster home.

Lily has completed her series of heartworm shots and will receive the HW antigen test on 08/20 to determine if she is free of heartworms. She continues to do well in her foster home. Lily enjoys going for short walks and playing in the back garden with the furbabies in her home. She is not too happy with all the daily Florida thunderstorms.

Foster Mom feels that Lily really does need another doggie companion in her forever home, one that is close to her size and weight, who can be a companion for her. So, please consider this before applying to adopt this precious little girlie. Please stay tuned for the results of Lily’s Antigen test and when she will be available for adoption.

UPDATE 07/04/2018: Foster Mom feels that Lily really does need another doggie companion in her forever home, one that is close to her size and weight, who can be a companion for her. So, please consider this before applying to adopt this precious little girlie.

UPDATED BIO 06/25/2018: Lily is one of 25 dogs pulled by a sister rescue group two months ago from a horrendous hoarding/backyard breeding situation. She is one of the 10 dogs that United Yorkie Rescue brought into our group. Sadly, 4 of the 10 dogs tested positive for heartworm disease and Sweet Lily was one of them.

Lily had the first of three Heartworm shots on June 20th and so far she has responded very well. She will return for her second and third shots on July 19/20. Once she fully recovers from the treatment and has tested negative for heartworms, she will be spayed and have a dental, as well as having her mammary gland tumors removed. It will be then that sweet Lily can begin enjoying a pain-free and joyful life. It will also be then that she will be ready to go to her forever home.

She is still a bit on the shy side with strangers, but is slowly learning that the humans in her life now will not harm her. She now realizes that she has known nothing but a loving and compassionate touch since she has been in her foster home.

Lily is okay with meeting strangers outside the home and does not bark at them and will let them gently pet her. Foster Mom says that whoever adopts this precious little girlie must be patient and understand that it may take her a while to warm-up to them, but by the time she is adopted, she may have already realized that she is safe and will never know fear again.

Finally, this precious little girl is a happy dog. Sweet.

PLEASE NOTE the following special circumstances:

- Lily can only be adopted into a home with children aged 14 or older.

- Adoption applications are being accepted for Lily; however, please keep in mind that she has a couple more months of heartworm treatment before she can go into her forever home. UYR follows the recommended treatment protocol recommended by the American Heartworm Society. Heartworm Treatment is very expensive and will cost approximately $800-$1,000 per dog. Currently, 4 out of the 10 dogs taken in with Lily tested positive for heartworms. Please consider a donation to help UYR continue to rescue and rehabilitate other dogs with heartworms.

They all needed to have their vaccinations updated, neutered or spayed and extensive labs had to be done on each one.

If you have been moved by Lily's story and her courage and resilience, please consider making a donation to UYR to cover vetting expenses and support our organization as we continue the long process of rehabilitating these precious little dogs.

UPDATED BIO 05/29/2018: Lily is one of 25 dogs pulled by a sister rescue group recently from a horrendous hoarding/backyard breeding situation. She is one of the 10 dogs that United Yorkie Rescue brought into our group. Sadly, 4 of the 10 dogs tested positive for heartworm disease and Sweet Lily was one of them.

Lily has come such a long way after being rescued from a terrible situation only 6 weeks ago. She is very smart, and is now house-trained, which is a big deal for a dog that has known nothing in her life but an over-crowded hoarding/backyard breeding situation. Lily is becoming a very loving little girl who wants to be with her person(s) all the time now. She is still initially reluctant of a stranger that comes into the foster home, but Foster Mom is taking her out and about as much as possible so that she can be well-socialized and meet lots of people. Lily’s last outing at Petco was very good in that she allowed strangers to come up to her and pet her. She is beginning to enjoy going for walks and rides very well in the car.

Lily did initially present with what appeared to be issues with her back legs. Her knees do not seem to bother her as she still runs and walks, and formerly had a bit of a limp on the back left leg. Her Foster Mom has been giving her CBD, which seems to help her a lot and the great news is that she is no longer limping and is a very friendly and loving dog these days. Lily has been cleared to start her heartworm treatment on 06/20 and should finish the treatment 5-6 weeks later. Once she completes her treatment, she will have a dental, spay and mammary gland removal. Then little Lily will be ready to go to her forever home.

Finally, this precious little girl is a happy dog.

PLEASE NOTE the following special circumstances:

- Lily can only be adopted into a home with children aged 14 or older.

UPDATED BIO 05/11/2018: Lily is one of 25 dogs pulled by a sister rescue group recently from a horrendous hoarding/backyard breeding situation. She is one of the 10 dogs that United Yorkie Rescue brought into our group. Sadly, 4 of the 10 dogs tested positive for heartworm disease and Sweet Lily was one of them.

Foster Mom says that it is hard to believe Lily was rescued just a month ago as this sweet girlie has come a very long way in this short time. She is very smart, and is now house-trained, which is a big deal for a dog that has known nothing in her life but an over-crowded hoarding/backyard breeding situation. Because none of the dogs from this horrible situation were socialized, Lily is still somewhat afraid of people, but her foster mom and dad are working with her daily, and having her meet as many family members and friends as possible. Lily likes being with her foster parents, and when foster mom is in her home office, Lily and the other dogs and a cat are there with her, usually sound asleep and content.

Lily loves going outside, playing, running and barking with the other dogs. It took her a while to find her voice, but that happened a few weeks ago and she will now happily bark when the others do. Lily is a very sweet and lovely dog. She is not currently what one would consider a lap dog, but in time her foster parents feel that she may soon come to enjoy being very close to her people – she has never experienced this before and for some dogs from situations like Lily came from, it takes more time.

Lily has started her heartworm treatment with antibiotics for 25 days; then she will return to the vet to see if she is healthy enough to continue the treatment. If so, it will be a several months of treatment, and then her dental and spay will be scheduled, along with removal of some potential mammary gland tumors.

Lily does have some issues with her back legs, and the vet suspects that she has bilateral luxating patellas and has had this issue for a long time without treatment. Her knees do not seem to bother her as she still runs and walks, and only occasionally has a bit of a limp on the back left leg, but does not seem to be in any pain. Finally, this precious little girl is a happy dog.

PLEASE NOTE the following special circumstances:

- Lily can only be adopted into a home with children aged 14 or older.

- Adoption applications are being accepted for Lily; however, please keep in mind that she has tested positive for heartworms. This means that Lily must endure 4-5 months of heartworm treatment before she can go into her forever home.

UPDATED BIO 04/21/2018: Lily is one of 25 dogs pulled by a sister rescue group recently from a horrendous hoarding/backyard breeding situation. She is one of the 10 dogs that UYR was able to bring into United Yorkie Rescue. Lily came in not only with heartworm disease, but with bilateral ear infections. She will see the vet on Monday to check her ears, and potentially begin her heartworm treatment.

Lily is slowly becoming more interested in her foster mom and dad and the little pack of doggies in her home. She is a very good eater and doesn’t mind taking her meds. She is a timid little girlie, probably because of the circumstances of her existence in an over-crowded and chaotic environment, but she does come out to check on everyone regularly. Foster mom was pleased that just last night, Lily asked to get up on the loveseat with her and the resident dogs. Please stay tuned for more information on this sweet little girlie.

I love my new look after a spa day

Do you think you could love me forever
Florida
Mika

Mika is an adorable little girl who is 6-1/2 years old and now weighs a perfect 5.6 lbs. She is being fostered in Lighthouse Point, FL.

THANK YOU TO MIKA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sherri Cipparone, Sandy Pagnotta, William Munette, Angie Cagle, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Karry Rogers, Edith Baker, Holly Keller, Erik Ebert, Robin Simpson, Dianne Schultz, Patricia Santucci, Teresa Beament

UPDATED BIO 09/11/2018: Mika arrived into rescue several weeks ago after undergoing an emergency surgery for pyometra which saved her life. She has recuperated from this big surgery and is doing so very good in her foster home. Mika is a very smart little girl and continues to be calm and cooperative in every way. She is leash-trained and loves to go on walks. She will do her business when she goes for a walk and will also use the pee-pee pad, but there have been a few accidents in the house, which is normal until she gets accustomed to her new routine. Her foster dad is not sure if this is just marking her territory or if she is still getting familiar with the smells and pottying schedule of her new foster home.

Mika loves to greet her foster family when they come home and will definitely follow them around, but she is quite the little lady and will not jump up on them for attention. Foster dad is unsure how Mika is with cats since they do not have a cat in their home; however, she has shown no issues or interest with the other dogs in the home, so she may be okay with a cat. Mika has become more confident in her foster home and will now let the other dogs know if she doesn’t like them “in her space”. Mika would probably be perfectly content to be the only dog in the home as she is more people-oriented than doggie-oriented. She would perhaps be okay with another dog close to her size and age that is sweet and calm. Mika is not aggressive at all with the resident dogs, but is now more assertive and won’t defer to them as she did when she first arrived in her foster home.

Mika can be left alone for short periods of time as long as she is able to roam around and is not crated. Her perfect home would be one where she has at least one stay-at-home parent and isn’t left for long periods of time. She is too small to jump up on the sofa, but is happy to be placed in her foster parents’ bed or couch. Mika is very compliant and pretty self-reliant.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to her small size, Mika cannot be adopted into a home with children under 14 years old. NO EXCEPTIONS!

UPDATED BIO 09/04/2018: Mika arrived into rescue several weeks ago needing emergency surgery to save her life. She has recuperated from this big surgery, gained a pound, and has had her stitches removed. Mika’s optimum healthy weight should be 6 lbs and she should reach that very soon since she has an excellent appetite and loves to eat.

Mika adjusted quickly to her foster home. She is not only calm and cooperative, but she has only barked once since arriving in her foster home. She is also very smart. This sweet girl is leash-trained and loves to go on walks. Mika loves sitting on your lap and following her people around. She will use the pee-pee pad and will do her business when she goes for a walk, but as she eats and drinks more there have been some accidents in the house. Her foster dad is not sure if this is just marking her territory or if she is still getting accustomed to the smells and pottying schedule of her new foster home.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to her small size, Mika cannot be adopted into a home with children under 14 years old. NO EXCEPTIONS!

UPDATED BIO 08/27/2018: Mika is recuperating from her emergency surgery that saved her life. Her vetting expenses are very high, and in order for United Yorkie Rescue to continue to help dogs like Mika, we are reaching out to our Yorkie Angels for donations to cover her vetting. Please donate so that we will be able to help the next little yorkie who arrives with major medical issues. Without our intervention, this little sweetie would not have made it.

Mika has had her lifesaving surgery and is recuperating in her foster home. Mika has had a hard life. First she was only kept for making babies and the result of that was that she developed pyometra, which is a life-threatening condition that required emergency surgery. Mika will now be given all the love and care she has been deprived of her whole life.

Mika will not be ready for adoption for several weeks. She needs to gain at least 1 pound to be a much healthier weight. Because of her tiny size she needs to go to an adult home or with children over the age of 14. Please stay tuned for more updates on sweet Mika.

Please think about donating to Mika. We can't let this little girl down again. Anything you can give will be so appreciated and Mika will get the life she so richly deserves.

Initial bio 8-20-18 What could be worse then getting in a new foster pup and immediately having to rush her to the emergency vet for surgery when it was discovered that she was hemorrhaging. It is very likely that this poor little girl who was once used as a breeder dog has pyrometra. Pyometra is defined as an infection in the uterus. Pyometra is considered a serious and life threatening condition that must be treated quickly and aggressively. So before Mika could even meet her foster family she was spending the day and night at the vet getting ready for her much needed surgery. Her vet bills are already over $1000.

Mika was being advertised on Craig's list to anyone who would come and get her. A group that pulls dogs at risk rescued her. They then call rescue groups in the hope one will take the dog into their rescue. When United Yorkie Rescue got the emergency call about this sweet tiny baby, we couldn't say no. We knew she would need surgery as quickly as possible, but we didn't think it would be this quick and an emergency. The vet said if we had waited one more day she would have died from the pyrometra.

Mika has had a hard life. First she was only kept for making babies and the result of that was this awful life threatening condition. We can't wait until we get to bring Mika home to her foster family. Once there we can give her all the love and care she has been deprived of her whole life.

Mika still has a long road of healing ahead of her. She will not be ready for adoption for several weeks. Because of her tiny size she needs to go to an all adult home or with children over the age of 14.

Mika was rushed to the vet and this is the only picture we could get of her getting ready for her surgery. New pictures and lots more information coming soon.

Please think about donating to Mika. We can't let this little girl down again. Anything you can give will be so appreciated and Mika will get the life she deserves.


To date we've spent $1234.50 on Mika's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $645.00 in donations.

Molly

Meet Molly! She is an adorable 10 month old yorkshire terrier who weighs 7.7 lbs. Molly is being fostered in North Port, FL.

INITIAL BIO 09/16/2018: Molly just arrived in her foster home today. She has been in three previous homes through no fault of her own, before arriving in UYR but we will make sure her next home will be her furever home! Her last owner loved her but was unable to care for her and wanted her to have a home where she could get more attention and love.

Molly is a very sweet little girl who has already adapted to her foster sisters and brothers. She is a cuddly little love muffin and loves to be with her persons. She enjoys walks and golf car rides and especially playing fetch with balls.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Molly's small size, she cannot go into a home with children under the age of 14 years old.


To date we've spent $289.80 on Molly's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Please donate so we can get Peaches the care she deserves

I am so happy to be out of the shelter
Florida
Peaches

Peaches is a beautiful yorkie-poo who is 8 years old and weighs 12 lbs. Peaches is both hearing and vision-impaired. She is being fostered in Ft. Myers, FL.

THANK YOU TO PEACHES' RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Lynda Slipetz, Karry Rogers, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Sharlene Babel, Wendy Fuhrmaneck

UPDATED BIO 08/20/2018: Peaches has had a busy 6 weeks since she first came into UYR. This precious little girl came to us from a high-kill shelter where she spent over 3 weeks and was scheduled to be euthanized. United Yorkie Rescue stepped up to the plate to save her and to give her the best possible chance at having a loving, forever home.

Peaches is a very loving little sweetheart who craves affection. She loves her Foster Mom & Dad, but is initially cautious of strange situations and people due to her vision and hearing-impairments. She loves bath-time and especially loves the 20-minute coconut oil massages that Foster Mom gives her, being very still and in her zen state of mind. Her foster parents say that she is a very easy-going little girl who loves being with her humans.

Peaches is both hearing and vision-impaired and this is likely the reason she was surrendered to the shelter by her previous owners. She does have some hearing and responds well when she is approached gently. Because she also has limited vision, her Foster Mom & Dad have been working with her to gain her trust and find the best way to approach her so that she is not startled.

Peaches has seen the doggie opthalmologist and sadly, there is little that can be done about her vision impairments, which are multiple. Her right eye has shrunken due to a chronic end-state condition called phthisis bulbi, making it a non-functional eye. This condition was likely caused by either inflammation or injury. Peaches’ left eye has a hypermature cataract and has a subluxation – or shifting - of the lens. Both eyes have an inherited condition common to several breeds of dogs, including the terrier breed, called vitreal degeneration. These conditions are being treated with daily eyedrops, and Peaches will return to the ophthalmologist in 6 weeks for a re-check. At that time, we will know if she will need eyedrops for the rest of her life.

Peaches is in no pain now that she is receiving soothing eyedrops. Her perfect home would be one where there is at least one stay-at-home parent since Peaches loves attention and being very close to her person. If you are looking for a snuggle-bunny, then Peaches is your girl! Due to her hearing/vision impairments, an adult-only home is necessary. Please don’t turn away from this sweet and precious little girl due to her special needs. Peaches will be your constant companion who has so much love to give.

UPDATED BIO 7/23/2018: Peaches has been in UYR for a little over a week now. She came to us from a high-kill shelter where she had been since 06/22. Peaches was scheduled for euthanasia and United Yorkie Rescue stepped up to the plate to save her life.

Peaches is a very quiet and calm dog who loves lying on the couch. She is still getting acquainted with her furry companions in her foster home although she hasn’t had much interest in interacting with them at this point. She is a bit fearful and since we don’t know her prior history, we are optimistic that this behavior may be due to the fact that she is both hearing and vision-impaired. She most likely has pain in her one eye and may have potentially suffered abuse in her prior home.

Peaches’ right eye needs to be enucleated (removed) and Foster Mom is getting an estimate for that procedure. Peaches has an appointment with a doggie opthamologist on August 15th for an evaluation of her left eye – she does have limited vision in that eye and we are hopeful that she may be a candidate for cataract surgery.

The enucleation and cataract surgery are expensive and we are reaching out to our Rescue Angels in the hopes that you will consider making a donation towards giving sweet Peaches a better quality of life. Without your generous donations, UYR is unable to continue to bring in medically-needy little dogs like Peaches. Please donate so that Peaches can be out of pain and see the world from a clearer and brighter perspective. It would help her to see the faces of her foster parents to know that they only have hands to love and comfort her and not to cause her harm.

INITIAL BIO 07/12/2018: Peaches just came into rescue from a high-kill shelter where she has been since 06/22. She appears to be a sweet and calm little girl who was scheduled for euthanasia and United Yorkie Rescue stepped up to the plate to save her life.

Peaches is a pretty little yorkie-poo girl who appears to have recently given birth to puppies – so sad. Her owner probably sold the puppies for profit and then dumped this little girlie. She presented at the shelter with some obvious eye issues. She saw the vet today and it was confirmed that she will need an enucleation (removal) of her right eye. It was crusted shut with a shrunken globe and chronic corneal damage and cannot be saved. This condition appears to be have been going on for a while. Peaches also has a mature cataract in her left eye which is limiting her vision, and she will soon see a doggie opthamologist to see if she is a candidate for cataract surgery.

Sweet Peaches is also hearing-impaired, but she can hear some tones and seems to get along fine with this disability. She also had fleabite dermatitis with scattered areas of hair loss. Peaches is still shell-shocked from being in the noisy and crowded shelter, but Foster Mom says that she is slowly coming around, especially when coaxed with treats, lol.

United Yorkie Rescue could not allow this sweet and adorable little girl to linger at the shelter any longer and potentially face euthanasia. She has a long road ahead of her and we are asking our rescue angels to please consider making a donation to UYR to help us get her out of pain with her right eye, and potentially help raise funds so that we can do cataract surgery on her other eye (if this is indicated) so that we can give her some vision back. Please check back soon for an update on this adorable little girl.


To date we've spent $208.28 on Peaches's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $179.50 in donations.

Princess

Princess is 8 years old and weighs only 7.7 pounds. Princess is being fostered in Palm Coast, FL.

THANK YOU TO PRINCESS' RESCUE ANGELS!

Bryan Pasmore, Christine Flaherty, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Sharon and Allen Springman, Teresa Beament, Debbi Driscoll, Leidy Kessler

UPDATED BIO 08/29/201: Hi everyone, Princess here with a Super-Great-Brand-New- And-Amazing-Update!!!! After going to many different doggie docs and specialists and having my leg x-rayed and poked at, and getting a needle-biopsy, and finally having the lump removed and tested and re-tested, my foster mom still wasn't convinced that my cancer was inoperable and I would just have to continue on with this bummer leg with a huge lump on it. Nope ….. foster mom said "No way!!!”

So on August 14th we returned to the vet to check one more time, and this time the doggie doc said she thought she could get out all the cancer if she amputated my bum leg. Yikes!!! That sounded very scary, but I had to trust the doctor and foster mom to do what was best for me. The very next day surgery was done and the leg and the cancer is now GONE. GONE. GONE. Yeah for me!!!!!

I'm back at foster mom & dad's house with my fur-brothers and sister and feeling WONDERFUL -- PAIN FREE & CANCER FREE!!! I just had all my stitches out and I'm healing nicely foster mom says, and I'm running around again on all 3 legs and having a ball with no more pain!!!! YIPPEE!!!

So now for the MOST AMAZING NEWS EVER!!! I'm moving from the Forever Ours page which most dogs never leave and moving down the road to the Looking for Love Page! Now, what does this mean? It means that YOU CAN ADOPT ME! I love it here with my foster parents and I’ve been here since 11/25/2017, but it’s time for me to move to a brand new Fur-ever home so foster mom and dad can help another little boy or girl that needs help.

Sooooooo, if you are interested in adopting me, just click on the Adoption Application link below and maybe I can become part of your family soon. I love to ride in the car, play & nap of course and I am completely house-trained like a big girl – aren’t I smart? One more important thing; I just love everyone I meet, two-legged or four-legged. I’ve got everything you are looking for in a loving lifelong companion. I'll be hanging out here in Palm Coast, Florida waiting on you.

Oh, one last thing – well maybe two. United Yorkie Rescue has paid all of my vetting expenses, and they are high. If you would like to help with these expenses, please consider making a donation to UYR by clicking on the PayPal button below. Your donation means that UYR will be able to continue to care for other little doggies just like me. I would really appreciate it. And ……. for all my friends who are still on the Forever Ours Page, can you go there and take a look at them and maybe send some donations their way as well? They aren’t as lucky as I am to be leaving the Forever Ours page, but they are happy and loved and UYR will take care of them for the rest of their lives.

Love, Princess

I am a very cute little fella

Florida
Romeo

MEET ROMEO. He is an adorable male yorkie who is 7 years old and weighs a very skinny 4 lbs. Little Romeo is being fostered in Odessa, FL.

THANK YOU TO ROMEO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Michelle Dancer

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.

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.

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.


To date we've spent $769.64 on Romeo's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $40.00 in donations.

Rosa

This sweetheart is little Rosa. She is 10 years old and weighs about 9 pounds. She is being fostered in Dunedin, FL.

THANK YOU TO ROSA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

UPDATED BIO 08/27/2018: Hi everybody - Rosa here. Boy-oh-boy do I have some really great news!! As you probably know, I had major surgery to remove a whole bunch of ugly tumors that were so big, they took up most of my chest. I also got fixed (spayed) at the same time Goodness, I didn’t even know I was broken, so I have had a lot of healing to do. That’s the great news. I’m all healed up from my surgeries and I’m ready to go to my furever home - like now!!

My foster mom calls me “Rosa - the Warrior Princess” because she says I was so brave going through everything that I must be a warrior. She tells everyone what a great dog I am and how easy I am to love. I will come when called. I play catch with my toys and I chase her all over the house when she’s wearing her slippers. Everyone says I am around 10 years old, but my mom says I act like a much, much younger dog.

When I have to take my medicine, she says I’m so good that she barely has to do anything. I have to get eye drops in both of my eyes twice a day, and not only am I good about it, I even tilt my head for her. You see, I have something called “dry eye” which means that I don’t produce my own tears. But this medicine I get helps stimulate my eyes to make tears again. Because I’ve had this for a while without getting the right eye medications, my right eye doesn’t look as good as my left eye, but I can still see with both eyes.

Foster Mom says I get along with everyone, even the kitty cat, even though I had never seen one before I came here. I was a little scared at first, but now I know she won’t hurt me so I leave her alone. If you’re looking for a lap dog, then I’m your girl. If you think you would want me to furever be your girl, then fill out an application and we’ll see if we’re a match.

Oh, and Foster Mom says that all of my medical care costed a whole lotta money, so she’s asking that you please donate to help my other foster brothers and sisters. Okay, gotta go, I see a toy I want to play with!

UPDATED BIO 07/17/2018: WE NEED YOUR HELP! Rosa’s story is exactly why United Yorkie Rescue exists. For almost 18 years, UYR has been able to rescue dogs like Rosa in dire straits, sometimes just hours away from euthanasia (like Rosa), and completely turn their lives around. It’s only because of our generous and cherished donors and foster parents that we can continue to do this for these sweet babies, and they all deserve a second chance in their lives.

But we can’t keep saving these beautiful furbabies without your help. To date, Rosa’s medical expenses are over $1,600 and we’ve only raised $89 in donations. There are so many other little needy dogs like Rosa out there that need to be rescued, which is where you come in. Won’t you please consider donating to Rosa’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 Rosa’s bio to help us not only with Rosa’s 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. Please continue to read Sweet Rosa’s story below:

Awesomeness!” We just found out that our sweet little Warrior Princess Rosas’s three mammary tumors are benign (not cancer), and she is dancing to the news!! Well, not really dancing, since she’s on restricted activity still, but Foster Mom and Dad are dancing to the news for sure! It took a month for Rosa to gain the strength for her B-I-G surgery, but just a week ago Rosa was strong enough to be spayed, have her tumors removed and she will soon get a much-needed dental. After recuperation from all this, she will be so ready for adoption to her furever family.

Sweet Rosa has come a long way from running the streets alone, then landing in a high-kill shelter and facing the unthinkable fate that was ahead of her. Now our sweet little Rosa is loving her new life. She follows Foster Mom all around the house. She gives hugs and kisses galore, loves to play with her squeaky toy and is pure joy to have near you.

Rosa doesn’t seem to have any bad habits that Foster Mom has seen. She comes when she is called, she lets Foster Mom do anything to her (eye drops, ear drops, wound cleaning, etc.) without so much as a peep out of her. She gets along great with other dogs and has quickly become okay with her kitty sister. So much so, that kitty was seen rubbing up against Rosa and Rosa was content with that.

Rosa likes to sleep with her humans and also loves to be on the sofa with her Foster Mom, but would gladly sit on your lap for a spell if you call her. She walks well on a leash, ignores passing dogs, and is truly an almost-perfect doggie companion. Her foster parents are working on house-training and believe she could be trained fairly easily as long as someone is home and can take her out on a schedule.

PLEASE NOTE: Rosa has a sweet and loving personality, but her Foster Mom believes that she should not go into a home with children under the age of 14.

UPDATED BIO 06/22/2018: Little Rosa was picked up from a high-kill shelter less than 24 hours before she was to be euthanized. This little angel was found by Animal Control wandering the streets and it appeared that she was probably on the streets a long while because of the condition she was in when picked up.

Fast Forward a couple of weeks - Rosa is now being loved and doted on like a sweet little girl like her deserves. Rosa has some serious medical issues that desperately need to be tended to, and that’s where our wonderful donors can step up and help this precious little girlie get the care she so desperately needs and deserves.

Rosa has multiple mammary tumors that need to be removed and biopsied and very hopefully healed with no further issues. She also has Dry Eye Syndrome that requires eye drops twice a day, but being the trusting little sweetheart she is, she lets Foster Mom administer the drops with no hesitation. Because her eyes were not previously taken care of, she has lost the vision in her right eye due to her severe dry condition and microphthalmia. This is a relatively uncommon congenital eye disease of dogs characterized by a unilateral or bilateral shrunken eye. Rosa must be an incredibly strong and resilient little girl since she doesn’t let the loss of vision stop her. Rosa’s little ears were so badly infected that they were swollen shut when rescued. Thanks to UYR, she is now receiving the medical care she desperately needs and loving her new life.

Rosa wants nothing more than to be with her human, generously giving out kisses galore. She also walks nicely on a leash, and once settled in, she rides well in a car. Rosa loves to sit on the sofa with her person and she just wants to know they are close by. She loves to sleep with her foster family and will climb into bed and lay at your feet, content in just knowing she’s near you.

Rosa’s very affectionate, and just loves belly rubs. Now that she is feeling better, she has become playful and is enjoying her life so much. She has a little bit of separation anxiety when Foster Mom leaves the house, but she quiets down after a short while. Of course, if Foster Dad is home, that makes it easier for her to relax.

Rosa gets along very well with other dogs, but really prefers human companionship over her fur-brothers and sisters. The first time she saw her foster kitty sister, she wasn’t sure what to think. She barked to let Foster Mom know there was something different about the little four-legged creature that she has probably never before seen, but has since accepted the kitty and no longer barks at her.

PLEASE HELP UYR HELP ROSA! Her medical bills already total over $550, and the estimate for her B-I-G surgery for her spay, removal of mammary tumors, a much-needed dental, plus the radiographs and antibiotics is estimated to be an additional $1,100. There is a possibility that Rosa may need to have her right eye enucleated, which would be another $800 - $1,000.

We are hopeful that UYR’s Rescue Angels will come forward to help Rosa and so many of the other needy dogs that our group takes in by making a donation to cover vetting costs. If you have been moved by Rosa’s story and her true grit, please help make a donation to this sweet girl.

Initial Bio 6/10/18 Little Rosa was picked up from the kill shelter just yesterday. She was found wandering the streets and taken in by Animal Control. Rosa was probably on the streets a long while because of the condition she was in when she was picked up. Rosa remained in the shelter waiting for her owners to come find her. That never happened and this sweet girl was one day away from being euthanized when United Yorkie Rescue was contacted and asked if we would take her. Of course we would. She needed us and we were there. When she met her United Yorkie Rescue angel she was so happy to be away from that noisy shelter and safe in her United Yorkie Rescue’s mom’s arms.

Rosa will be taken to the vet very soon. She has several medical issues that need to be addressed and taken care of. She needs her eyes checked and may lose one. She has a mammary tumor that has to be removed, and she needs to be spayed. She also has skin dermatitis probably from fleas, and she will need a dental. It is also possible she has an ear infection. The streets were not kind to such a small dog as Rosa.

As you know we count on our rescue angels to help us with the medical costs of so many needy dogs and Rosa is one of them. She most likely will have at the least two surgeries and maybe even three. Please, once again reach into your pockets and your heart, and make a donation to sweet Rosa. Let’s her know she is now safe and will be cared for and loved for the rest of her life.


To date we've spent $1886.40 on Rosa's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $723.00 in donations.
Please donate!

Sophie

Sophie is 9 years old and weighs 8 lbs. Sadly, Sweet Sophie tested positive for heartworm disease. She is being fostered in Altamonte Springs, FL.

THANK YOU TO SOPHIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

UPDATED BIO 09/11/2018: Hi there, Sophie here. Let me fill you in on what's been going on with me. You may remember that I was one of the 25 doggies rescued from a horrendous breeder/hoarder in South Central Florida in April, 2018. Of the ten doggies UYR rescued, four were heartworm positive. Unfortunately, I was one of them.

Here's what Sophie had to say today after her check-up with her fave vet Dr. Lisa:

I have completed my heartworm treatment and my recent microfilariae, which determines if there are any larvae (baby worms) was negative. Hooray!

Dr. Lisa took another x-ray today and there were absolutely NO stones in my bladder – hooray again! I have been taking a new medication to help me with my incontinence and I’ll get back with you on that in a few weeks to let you know if it is helping. I have also taken my last dose of prednisone which should also slow down that situation, hopefully.

You may remember that I told you in my last update that I do not have a heart murmur either. I am finding out so many wonderful things about my health and wanted to share with all my fans. The dogtor said the murmur detected by the previous vet was probably as a result of the nasty heartworms I had. I am taking Tri-Heart to prevent those horrible, horrible heartworms from ever visiting me again.

I still need to have a dental and that will be done in a week or two. Then I will have really sweet breath which I’m sure my foster mom will appreciate, haha!

Well, that's my story and I want to thank you for reading it. I hope you liked what you read. I'm a good little girl and would really like to become part of your family. Everyone who meets me always tells me how very sweet and gentle I am. If you would like me become a part of your family, please click on the link below and submit an adoption application for me.

WE NEED YOUR HELP! Sophie’s story is exactly why United Yorkie Rescue exists. United Yorkie Rescue has been able to rescue dogs like Sophie with heartworm disease and completely turn their lives around. It’s only because of our generous and cherished donors and foster parents that we can continue to do this for these sweet babies, and they all deserve a second chance in their lives.

But we can’t keep saving these beautiful furbabies without your help. To date, Sophie’s medical expenses are over $2,000 and there have been only been $443 donated for this sweet girl. There are so many other little needy dogs like Sophie out there that need to be rescued, which is where you come in. Won’t you please consider donating to Sophie’s medical care so that we can help the next furbaby that needs us?

Here's what Sophie had to say recently:

I have now completed my heartworm treatment. Let me tell you, it was no fun. I couldn't run, jump or play for a few months. But I’m feeling much better now and I am very happy about that.

My foster mom took me to the dogtor because I was sorta, kinda, a little bit incontinent. I would use the pee-pee pad, but I sometimes didn't make it in time. My foster mom thought I might have a urinary tract infection. The dogtor said I didn't, but I did have small bladder stones in my urethra. I also had a runny nose and was sneezing. I was given some medicine to make me feel better.

I also found out that I do not have a heart murmur as previously thought. Yeah for me! The dogtor said the murmur previously detected by the vet was probably as a result of the nasty heartworms I had. I am taking Tri-Heart to prevent those horrible, horrible heartworms from ever visiting me again

UPDATED BIO 08/07/2018: Sophie is one of 25 dogs pulled by a sister rescue group four months ago from a horrendous hoarding/backyard breeding situation. She is one of the 10 dogs that United Yorkie Rescue brought into our group. Sadly, 4 of the 10 dogs tested positive for heartworm disease and Sweet Sophie was one of them.

Here's what Sophie had to say recently:

Sophie here. I wanted everyone to know that I am doing great. I had my last Heartworm shot and didn’t feel so great for a bit, but now I’m feeling so much better. I will soon have another heartworm test and hopefully this situation will be over soon and I’ll be ready to go to my furever home.

Foster Mom believes I’m a chocolate yorkie/mix. My hair is growing out and I feel so much better, especially since I’ve had a ton of baths and now I finally smell so good. I was in that terrible place so long without a bath, and it took a lotta baths in my foster home for the bad smell to go away.

I am a beautiful chocolate brown color and my hair is now nice and soft. I love to sit by my Foster Mom and have my belly rubbed. I’m kinda liking this love thing since I never knew what that was before I came into my foster home. I still need to be spayed and have my toofers looked at, and hopefully I will be ready for that next.

I’ll keep you updated on when I’ll be ready, so stay tuned for updates. Thank you United Yorkie Rescue for rescuing me from that horrible place. Love and Kisses, Sophie

UPDATED BIO 06/30/2018: Sophie is one of 25 dogs pulled by a sister rescue group two months ago from a horrendous hoarding/backyard breeding situation. She is one of the 10 dogs that United Yorkie Rescue brought into our group. Sadly, 4 of the 10 dogs tested positive for heartworm disease and Sweet Sophie was one of them.

Here's what Sophie had to say recently:

Sophie here. I wanted to update you on what’s been going on. It has been a pretty busy month and I am feeling so much better. Foster Mom and the vet decided that I was okay to start my heartworm treatment. I was really scared that the shots would hurt, but Foster Mom and the vet said I would be fine and not to worry. My first shot was on 06/25 and I’m doing all right now. They said I was a real trooper, but I had to go home and rest for a long time. I have another shot in July and August.

I have a really great foster Mom. She lets me sit on her lap and keeps giving me kisses and tells me how much she loves me and how special I am. I still love my baths – I spent most of my life never having baths, but they make me feel so good afterwards that I look forward to them now. Foster Mom said I need to stay with her for a kinda long time until I finish my heartworm treatment. She says she will miss me when I go to my furever home in a few months. I will miss her too, but she said that she will make sure I go to a furever home with some real nice people who will let me sit on their laps. Please don’t turn away from me because I’m a little older than the other dogs I came in with. I still need love and have a lot to give back to my humans.

PLEASE NOTE the following special circumstances:

- Sophie can only be adopted into a home with children aged 14 or older.

- Adoption applications are being accepted for Sophie; however, please keep in mind that she has a couple more months of heartworm treatment before she can go into her forever home. Heartworm Treatment is very expensive and will cost approximately $800-$1,000 per dog. Sadly, 4 out of the 10 dogs taken in with Sophie tested positive for heartworms. Please consider a donation to help UYR continue to rescue and rehabilitate other dogs with heartworms.

- Please be patient with our process in considering adoption applications for Sophie as our primary interest is supporting her during her heartworm treatment. Our primary goal at this time is getting her healthy so that she can continue to enjoy a wonderful life in a loving, forever home.

- UYR is reaching out to our friends, supporters and generous donors in the hopes of raising the thousands of dollars it will cost our group to get Sophie healthy, as well as the other dogs from the same hoarding/backyard breeding situation. They all needed to have their vaccinations updated, neutered or spayed and extensive labs had to be done on each one.

If you have been moved by Sophie's story and her courage and resilience, please consider making a donation to UYR to cover vetting expenses and support our organization as we continue the long process of rehabilitating these precious little dogs.

UPDATED BIO 05/24/2018: Sophie is one of 26 dogs who was pulled by a sister rescue group 6 weeks ago from a horrendous hoarding/backyard breeding situation. She is one of the 10 dogs that UYR was able to bring into United Yorkie Rescue. All of these dogs were terribly neglected and medically-needy and were all living in an unsafe, unsanitary and over-crowded home with very little human interaction.

Sophie had this to say recently:

Hi - My name Sophie, I so happy that I was rescued. I lived my whole life in a really bad – and sad – place. There was never enough food or water cuz’ there was so many other doggies there. While I was there, I kept having beautiful baby puppies, but I never got to keep any of them, and that made me even sadder.

Now for some good news - I have a really great foster mom who lets me sit on her lap whenever I want. She gives me kisses and tells me how much she loves me and how special I am. Before I came into foster mom’s home, no human ever told me how special I was and gave me kisses. I was never given a bath either, but now I love taking baths cuz’ it makes me feel so good afterwards. And another wonderful thing – I never knew what “treats” were until now, but I sure do love them.

Foster mom tells me that I have to stay with her for a while since I was in really poor condition when I came to her. I have to get healthy enough to go through heartworm treatment and get spayed and have a dental. She said I will probably lose all my teeth, but that’s okay with me since my mouth hurts sometimes and she said it will feel so much better. I do have a teeny-tiny heart murmur, so that needs to be monitored. Will you please stay tuned while I’m getting all healthy? Because then I will be looking for my forever home.

PLEASE NOTE the following special circumstances:

- Adoption applications are being accepted for Sophie; however, please keep in mind that shehas tested positive for heartworms. This means that Sophie must endure 4-5 months of heartworm treatment before she can go into her forever home. UYR follows the recommended treatment protocol recommended by the American Heartworm Society. Heartworm Treatment is very expensive and will cost approximately $800-$1,000 per dog. Currently, 4 out of the 10 dogs taken in with Sophie tested positive for heartworms. Please consider a donation to help UYR continue to rescue and rehabilitate other dogs with heartworms.

- Please be patient with our process in considering adoption applications for Sophie as our primary interest is supporting her during her heartworm treatment. Once she has completed treatment, she will be altered and receive any additional vaccinations needed. Our primary goal at this time is getting Sophie healthy so that she can continue to enjoy a wonderful life in a loving, forever home.

- UYR is reaching out to our friends, supporters and generous donors in the hopes of raising the thousands of dollars it will cost our group to get Sophie healthy, as well as the 9 other dogs from the same hoarding/backyard breeding situation. They not only need to have their vaccinations updated, be neutered or spayed and have extensive labs, but they also need to emotionally heal from years of neglect. For the ones like Sophie that are HW+, they will soon begin treatment which will last 4-5 months. If you have been moved by Sophie's story and her courage and resilience, please consider making a donation to UYR to cover vetting expenses and support our organization as we begin the long process of rehabilitating these precious little dogs.

UPDATED BIO 04/20/2018: Sophie continues to do well in her foster home in spite of several on-going medical issues. In addition to being HW+, Sophie also has a Grade I/VI heart murmur which is mostly insignificant, but should be monitored. She is also being treated for a UTI due to her frequent urination and dribbling, bless her heart. She will have a dental once she is healthy enough to do so and will likely lose all her teeth due to sheer neglect.

There is no doubt that this precious little girl has endured a lot of emotional trauma and neglect in her life. It has been determined that she does have impaired hearing. Sophie also has bilateral cataracts but is able to see shadows and gets around the house just fine. Foster Mom said that this lovely girl is a total lovebug and a sweetheart. Once she has gone through her HW treatment and had a dental, she will be ready for adoption. Sophie’s needs are but a few - she needs love and a stable home who understands her special needs and will adore her – forever and ever.

PLEASE NOTE the following special circumstances:

She is one of the 10 dogs that UYR was able to bring into United Yorkie Rescue. All of these dogs were terribly neglected and medically-needy and were all living in an unsafe, unsanitary and over-crowded home with very little human interaction. All of these dogs appear to be very sweet and docile, even though many of them may have hidden medical issues that we are not yet aware of.

PLEASE NOTE: Sophie had her first vet check, and sadly - she tested positive for heartworms. This means that Sophie must endure HW treatment that is very hard on any dog, and it will be even harder since Sophie and the other dogs rescued are currently all in poor physical condition. She will be in her foster home for up to 4 months while she is undergoing HW treatment. It is hoped that none of the other dogs from this backyard breeder test positive for heartworms. So far, 4 out of the 10 dogs from this neglectful situation have tested positive for heartworm disease. Prayers are appreciated and donations will be gladly accepted.

Sophie and the other precious little dogs did not come with any vetting information, and all need to be altered. They are all in poor condition, and many will need longer to recuperate from the horrible neglect than others. All have rotten mouths and most of them will likely lose all of their teeth. UYR is committed to caring for these dogs and providing them with a safe, compassionate and loving foster home, while at the same time letting them know the life ahead of them will be full of wonderful things.

UYR is reaching out to our friends, supporters and generous donors in the hopes of raising the thousands of dollars it will cost our group to make sure all of these dogs’ medical needs are taken care of, as well as their emotional needs. If you have been moved by Sophie's story and her courage and resilience, please consider making a donation to UYR to cover vetting expenses.


To date we've spent $2228.94 on Sophie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $478.65 in donations.

Miloh is Looking for his Forever Family
Georgia
Miloh

Meet Miloh a 11 year old, 10 pound Silky Terrier . He is being fostered in Hiawassee,GA

THANK YOU TO MILOH'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Jennifer Eusner

Updated Bio 6-4-2018: Milo has a birthday coming up soon and he will be 12 years old. He has lots and lots of energy and loves to play tug-of war and fetch with his toys. He has a bit of arthritis but Miloh doesn’t let that hinder him at all, he enjoys riding on a 4 wheeler with foster dad and going for car rides. Miloh also is ready to go for walks with his leash anytime! Miloh enjoys bath time and doesn’t mind getting groomed. Snuggle time is his favorite and he LOVES belly rubs !! He also is very smart and knows the basic commands such as sit and come. He is pretty much housetrained , but wears a bellyband around the house because he gets excited sometimes and pees. Miloh was surrendered by a family who could no longer care for him. He was the only dog in the home and prefers to be the only dog in the home. He needs a stay at home family or a work from home family. Miloh is not a fan of children so he cannot go to a home with any children under twelve, also if they come visit frequently. Miloh also needs a fenced in yard for him to run and play, no electric fence. Miloh deserves a home to live out the rest of his senior years with love and care . He wants to be your best bud is your home the right fit for this sweet boy?

Updated Bio 3/11/2018: Hi every PAWDY! It’s me, Miloh. It has been a while since you heard from me so here I am with an important PUP-DATE. I have had such a great winter! I got to go on a road trip in an RV to Florida with my foster Mom and Dad. It was nice there and much warmer. We even had a Christmas tree in the RV. I made new human friends but the best part was Santa found me in the RV and brought me lots of toys and goodies. You see, I am a very good boy and Santa has been paying attention. He knows I LOVE play time so he mad sure I was well stocked with toys. I am so happy Spring is right around the corner. Foster Mom got me a new Spring cut and I’m ready for warmer weather. I can wait to be outside and playing lots.

I am a really great dog. Sometimes I feel a little sad because my forever human is taking so long to find me. Foster Mom and Dad tell me “ it’s okay Miloh.....your special human is making their way towards you; we just need to be patient.”

My PAWFECT home would be one where I could have a fenced yard since I love to run around outside. I dislike being alone so a stay at home human that I can be a Velcro dog to would be great. I’m very active for 11 and I love to play fetch, tug of war, ride the 4 wheeler with foster Dad, and I LOVE WATER including baths and will hop right in on my own. I also love to go walking on my leash. When play time is done its time for me to pop into the nearest lap for cuddle and kiss time. I have great manners too! I am mostly house trained and I come right away when I am called. I’m so hopeful that my FUREVER PERSON is reading this right now and is making their way to me. I hope the Easter Bunny will skip the basket full of eggs this year and bring me my own special human for Easter instead! If you think you are my PAWFECT match please apply to adopt me today or reach out to my foster Mom for more information at equusjojo@aol.com

Updated Bio 11/24/2017: Miloh has been with us for a little over a month now and we have gotten to know him a bit better. Miloh is crazy about walks and really requires two or three a day. He has some arthritis in his back and along with his supplements and daily activity it really seems to help. He doesn’t let it slow down his ball chasing or Tug-of-war. Even though he loves to walk, a physical fence and not an electric fence is required. Miloh prefers to go to a home where he is the only dog. He has lived in a home for many years where he was the only dog and had difficulties when new dogs where introduced to him. Children must be 12 years or older. Miloh is up to date on all shots and a healthy boy. The Vet says he is in good shape besides the arthritis which hasn’t given him much difficulty so far. Miloh is 10 pounds of funded love and just wants to be your best boy! If you are retired, or work from home, or can take him to work with you, Miloh may be the one for you.

Initial Bio 10/22/2017: Miloh is an 11 years young Silky Terrier who weighs 10 pounds. He is up to date on shots and is neautered. Miloh is just a fun loving guy! Some of his favorite activities are playing fetch, tug of war, going outside to run, or for a nice walk around the neighborhood on his leash. Miloh comes when called and has the manners of a gentlemen. He is not opposed to popping into your lap for a few cuddles and kisses either. He also loves his baths and will jump into a lake if allowed! Real water boy! He even enjoys riding on a 4 wheeler with Foster Dad, when he is inside the house he is Foster Moms best boy! Miloh is housebroken but wears a belly band indoors because sometimes he can get overexcited and pee. He is familiar with a doggie door and will use one. Miloh will follow his human around the house and is very interested in what you are doing until nap time . He is a wonderfully sweet dog that loves his people. Stay tuned for more updates as Miloh settles into his foster home and they get to know him better.


To date we've spent $824.99 on Miloh's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $100.00 in donations.
Please donate!

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. 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.


To date we've spent $3292.84 on Maggie May's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $2200.92 in donations.

Lola

Lola is a precious 5 year old, 15 lb. girl being fostered in central IA.

UPDATE BIO. 09/19/18. Hello my name is Lola. I was born on November 7th 2012 at 3:15am. I was placed as a puppy with a nice family who had teenage sons. I was happy for 6 years until a new grandson decided to hit me with drum sticks. I didn’t like that much, so I was returned to my foster mom who watched me be born.

I absolutely love to cuddle. I’m very affectionate. I just don’t like to be hit with sticks. I will make a wonderful addition to any family that has kind people in it. I have a few missing teeth in the front but that doesn’t keep me from smiling

INITIAL BIO. 08/21/18. Lola is one of three puppies born while their Mother, Sally, was with United Yorkie Rescue in 2013.

Unfortunately, Lola’s forever home for the last 5 years has changed with the addition of grandchildren, and both Lola and Sally have been returned to our Rescue.

Lola was born on 11/6/2013, and her estimated weight is 15#s. Lola’s foster Mom describes her as very sweet and non-aggressive. Once we get Lola in to see the vet, we will have more information to share on this sweet girl.

INITIAL BIO. 07/10/18. Sally is a 12 year old, sweet little lady recently returned to United Yorkie Rescue after 6 years with her original adopter. The adopter returned Sally to us due to the arrival of grand babies and a concern that Sally would snap at the younger children. As a result, we will not consider any applicant who has children or grandchildren younger than 12.

Sally is a loving companion but does not enjoy the company of children. She also prefers a quieter home, with a female human she can bond with. Sally is up to date on her immunizations, underwent her dental cleaning, had some teeth removed, and she received a clean bill of health.

If you might be the perfect, forever home for for this sweet little gal, please submit an application. This girl deserves a great place and people to call home in her senior years!


To date we've spent $265.28 on Sally Sue's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $25.00 in donations.

Sophie
Iowa
Sophie-Iowa

Sophie is an adorable 11-year-old, 6 pound, Yorkie Bischon mix currently being fostered in Des Moines, IA

THANK YOU TO SOPHIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Christine Flesner

INIITIAL BIO. 08/31/18: Sophie was tearfully surrendered by her previous owners due to not being home enough. She was having to spend too many hours being crated or boarded at the vet, waiting for her owners to come home.

Sophie is an active, 11-yr-old girl. She requires a home with a fenced-in yard and an active owner who is willing to take time to play fetch with her and take her for short walks. She also likes cuddle time on the couch.

Sophie would be happiest in a home without young children and a stay at home or work from home owner. Sophie's Foster Dad says she makes a fabulous office dog!

Sophie would do well as an only dog, but gets along fine with other small dogs.

While Sophie does well going potty outside, her new family must be willing to continue working with her to master potty training. This will take time and patience, with praise and reward with lots of treats. Sophie loves treats!


To date we've spent $0 on Sophie-Iowa's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $50.00 in donations.

Pooh Bear is Looking for a Fresh Start
Kentucky
Pooh Bear

Meet Pooh Bear, a precious 3-year-old, 6-pound Yorkie mix boy being fostered in Versailles, KY.

Update 8/5/18

Pooh Bear could not have a more perfect name. He has the cutest face and big eyes, just like the Pooh Bear we all grew up with (and the one in the new movie – Christopher Robin). AND…one of his foster siblings is named Eeyore!

Pooh Bear is settling into his Foster Home. He has a good appetite , but is not yet housebroken. We are working on it. He walks well on a leash and gets along well with the other dogs in his foster home, after an adjustment period. He is has recovered well from his neuter and will be microchipped this week. Pooh Bear seems quite nervous about his new surroundings at first and is easily startled by loud noises. A fenced in yard would be preferable because he is very fast! He is young, agile and likes to climb on chairs/ furniture. On his initial checkup, Pooh Bear tested positive for intestinal parasites, but was treated and now has tested negative. His fur is thin in spots from his history of fleas, but skin is looking much better.

Pooh Bear seems protective of his food and will snarl with the other dogs in the foster home when food is involved. He tries to play with the other dogs in his foster home once they get to know each other.

Sweet Pooh Bear still has anxious moments. When he first came to his new foster home, he was anxious and nervous. Some growling and nipping happened, until he settled in. This has improved, but Pooh Bear will need an adopter who is patient and willing to work with him on hoursebreaking and calming him. Foster mom thinks he would do better in a home without children.

And he also needs laps! He LOVES to snuggle …….. and get lots and lots of attention. Who could resist those big beautiful eyes? Pooh Bear lived with cats before he was rescued, and sometimes he makes a sound that Foster mom calls “purring”. He is full of personality!!

For more information, contact Foster mom at CTWard@aol.com.

Initial Bio 7/17/18

Pooh Bear has had a hard life up until now. He was loved, but his former owner had some serious life challenges that were just too much to deal with on their own. Pooh Bear came from a home where his owner struggled with mental health issues including addiction, animal hoarding, poverty and legal problems. Pooh Bear and several felines needed placement in a hurry when his former owner was incarcerated. Pooh loved his owner and his owner loved him but life's challenges were just too much and now Pooh Bear is safe with United Yorkie Rescue and looking for a fresh start. We were so happy to bring this sweet soul into rescue. Right now Pooh Bear is pretty scared and everything is totally new. He would probably do best with no small children and would love a retired couple that he could snuggle with all day. He has lived his entire life with a house full of felines and has lived on a diet exclusively made up of cat food. He was the only dog among a bunch of kitty friends so he ate what everyone else did. Now we are slowly transitioning him to a healthy canine diet. He was also badly infested with fleas and his poor skin is in rough shape. His face is just adorable but the rest of his body is missing lots of hair. The good news is he is already being treated and he is now flea-free. Pooh should heal up just fine with time, medical care, love, and good nutrition and soon he will SHINE like a new penny! If you would like to help Pooh Bear get his fresh start in life by helping toward his medical care then click the PayPal button below. Or if you feel like you are Pooh's perfect FUREVER match then apply to adopt him today!

Max
Massachusetts
Max

Meet Max. Max is a 6-year-old, 16 pound Yorkie boy residing in MA. He is part of a bonded pair and must be adopted with his brother, Tigger.

UPDATE BIO. 8/27/18- My brother Max and I are still here in MA. We've had a hot summer, but FM take us for a quick dip in the pool to cool us down. We don't mind it so much cause she hangs onto us real tight. The hummingbirds have been busy and I (Max) would love to get a little closer to them, they make such chatter, I have chased them, I just want to play.

Tigger and I play like brothers do, playing tug of war with our toy Tigger, we chase each other around the yard and love to meet new people. Riding in the car is the best, When FM gets our harnesses and leash, we just go silly, Max just dances in circles while I bark at mom to hurry up and get that harness on us.

Every night before bed we get our chicken treat and if mom forgets or it's getting past 9pm., we let her know, it works every time. BOL. We are here waiting for our perfect family to make us part of their family, we come together, twice the love to give.

UPDATE BIO. 6/6/18 I'm still here in MA. with my brother. Some days it feels like spring and other days are like fall and all rainy. When it's nice out, we go on long walks. There are so many smells and interesting things to see. I get so excited when I see the leash and harness; I just do circles until we walk out the door. My foster Mom has these tiny little birds thats that make this squeaky noise and do zoomies all around us. I just chase them but they are so fast, sometimes there are more than one and they dive bomb and fight over the hummingbird feeders.

My foster Mom calls me her "little Teddy Bear". She say's I'm so cuddly and soft, so if you are looking for your next Teddy Bear, I'm it. Looking forward to hugging my new Mom/Dad and resting my head on your chest. If you think that person is you, just follow the link to complete an application to adopt me. Bark at ya later.

Update bio. 03/09/18. Max here, Tigger's younger brother. I weigh 15 lbs. I also spent the day at the Vet and am now up to date with vaccines, teeth cleaning and neuter. The Vet was so amazed at our teeth and how good they look, cause they say us Yorkies are known to have difficulty with healthy gums and teeth. I had to wear the "cone of shame" much longer than Tigger, I just couldn't leave that ouchy alone. Did you know I can go outside when ever I want! FM has a big fenced in yard that I just love, I can run run run. I let FM know when I have to potty, she says I'm such a good boy. I love to play with my brother Tigger. We run and wrestle with each other and play tug of war with "Tigger pull toy", FM thinks it so funny when I pull Tigger across the tile floor when we play with the pull toy. Well FM is cutting up Apples, and I love them.

Please consider adopting 2 cute boys with a lot of personality.

Initial Bio. 02/15/18. Hi I'm Max, I can with my brother from another mother, Tigger. The ride was a long one but I took a couple of naps along the way. I take a little while to warm up to people. This is the first time I've been away so I'm a little confused and anxious. FM and FD has promised to take good care of me and they said they will find the right loving family that will take care of me furever. I love, love, love playing outside, FM has a big fenced in yard that I can roam around and check out all the smells. Well i'll bark at ya later, gotta run.

Meet Tigger. Tigger is a 8-year old, 6 pound Yorkie boy residing in MA. He is part of a bonded pair and must be adopted with his brother, Max.

THANK YOU TO TIGGER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Trula Montgomery, Christine Dwyer

UPDATE BIO: 8/27/18- My brother Max and I are still here in MA. We've had a hot summer, but FM take us for a quick dip in the pool to cool us down. We don't mind it so much cause she hangs onto us real tight. The hummingbirds have been busy, and I (Max) would love to get a little closer to them, they make such chatter, I have chased them,

I just want to play. Tigger and I play like brothers do. We play tug of war with our toy Tigger, chase each other around the yard and love to meet new people. Riding in the car is the best, when FM gets our harnesses and leash we just go silly, Max just dances in circles while I bark at mom to hurry up and get that harness on us.

Every night before bed we get our chicken treat and if mom forgets or it's getting past 9pm., we let her know, it works every time. LOL. We are here waiting for our perfect family to make us part of their family, we come together, twice the love to give.

UPDATE BIO. 6/6/18- Tigger here in MA. with my brother Max. My FM and FD are in the hunt for missing pens that my FD uses for his puzzles. They can't find them! They have looked under their bed and the sofa and still can't find them. I will never tell where I keep my secret stash. They call me a Dickens and the Ever Ready Bunny. If I have a chance to steal toilet paper roll or tissue, I will run away with it and shred it to pieces. When we go for a walk, I'm the leader of the pack, being so small I have to triple my steps to the rest of the pack just to stay first in line. Thats me: small and mighty.

I love teasing my brother just to get him to chase me, sometimes I bite his legs just to get him to play, then we go around and around the yard/house. Sometimes we play with our "Tigger pull toy" and my brother Max will drag me around the house, but I don't let go, FM just laughs. FM says i'm quit a character, what ever that means.

It's been a little cool here at night, so I like to burrow under the covers. FD couldn't find me the first time I did this and was looking all over for me. He woke up FM and said he couldn't find Tigger. I popped my head out so he could see me. He just laughed. I follow my FM and FD around all day and I like to snuggle next to FM on the couch at night.

If your looking for a companion that won't let you out of your sight and enjoys having 2 playful, loving pups, Max and I will be very happy to be apart of your family.

Update Bio. 03/09/18. Tigger here. I've settled in MA. I had a Vet visit that lasted all day. I got my vaccines, teeth cleaned and neuter. I had to wear this collar thing for days. FM would laugh at me because every time she would put it on me, I didn't think I could move and would bark till she picked me up. So glad that is over. The weather here in MA. has been crazy. We've played in the snow and gone on nice walks in 60 degree weather. The best walk was at the beach; The smells there were amazing. I'm 5.5 lbs and would benefit from a fenced in yard and respectful children, I love FM's grandchildren, they play tug of war with my little Tigger toy. I'm ready to move on with a new family and my brother.

Initial Bio. 02/15/18. Hi I'm Tigger, I made a long trip from NY to MA on Sunday, I looked out the window most of the ride but it was dark and rainy and my FM and FD was wondering what I could see, BOL. I'm not sure why I'm in this new place, they say I'm an owner surrender. I had a rough first night but my second day/night was much better. I have a pack to hang around with and a big yard, thats fun. I'm 8 y/o and about 7-8 lbs., I'm spunky, like to play with a small tennis ball and tug of war. I also love to be held.


To date we've spent $470.40 on Tigger's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $45.00 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

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 $20.00 in donations.

Beautiful Dixie
South Carolina
Dixie

Dixie is ADOPTION PENDING! Dixie is an 8-year old, 6 pound Yorkie female being fostered in Summerton, SC

Inital Bio

08/24/2018

Dixie has had a bit of a sad life. She came from a breeder who intended for her to have lots of puppies. Unfortunately Dixie’s little body did not cooperate and the breeder gave her up after her first pregnancy and resulting complications meant Dixie would never be the money making puppy-maker the breeder hoped for. Dixie was sold at a “discount” to a family who had Dixie for a few years where she was passed around quite a bit. Dixie was eventually returned to her breeder who became gravely ill. As the breeder's health declined, so did Dixie’s care. When the breeder died, Dixie was taken to a shelter and scanned for a chip and her former family’s information was found and they were contacted. To their credit, they did go to the shelter and get Dixie. She was unrecognizable; a matted, flea infested, almost hairless, malnourished mess. She could not even walk because her nails were grown out so far they curled into her pads. The family knew a local groomer who was also involved in rescue and she took Dixie in and nursed her to back to health. UYR was asked to help precious Dixie find the loving forever home she deserves.

On to the GOOD STUFF! Dixie is such a sweetheart and has so much love to give! She is a constant companion, loves attention and would be a perfect purse and lap dog. She likes to follow you around like a little furry shadow. She is very smart and learns new concepts quickly. She is house-trained, leash trained and knows basic commands like her name, sit, stay. When going outside she waits at the door for you to tell her to go out. She has a trick she does too; if you ask her to 'grin' and she will smile! She has lived in homes with both cats and dogs so she’d be happy with either arrangement. She is an excellent look-out guard dog, as Yorkies are known for. She only barks a warning bark if she hears something, then goes & checks it out, but otherwise she is very quiet. Dixie is a dog who is a smart and well behaved as she is beautiful. She needs a home where she can be a constant companion to someone and get all the love and care she’s been missing. If you think you are Dixie’s perfect human apply to adopt her today.

Adoption Pending

To date we've spent $25.00 on Dixie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $50.00 in donations.

8/5/18 Update

Hello every Pawdy! It’s me Avery Rose and I have BIG NEWS! It’s time for the BIG PUPPY REVEAL!!!! Can I get a drum roll please?

IT’s TWO PRECIOUS GIRLS!!!!! Meet Juniper Sage and Hadley Grace my two precious baby girls! They are 6 and 7 ounces and just 24 hours old. Ive been super busy being a Mom for the first time but Foster Mom says I’m the best little Momma and I’m inclined to agree. Well I’ve got to run because my babies say it’s feeding time and I can’t keep them waiting. Stay tuned for more PUPDATES in the days to come.

Love, Avery Rose

7/14 update

We have a VERY EXCITING PUP-DATE from Avery Rose!

We hello everyone! It’s me, Avery Rose! I was feeling a little yucky this morning so my foster Mom took me in to be checked. My doggie doctor says the PUPPIES ARE COMING and SOON! He says I’m about to be a Mommy of TWO PAWFECT PUPPIES and I am SO EXCITED! The Dogtor says my milk is in and my “girl parts” are already showing signs of labor so we are on FULL PUPPY WATCH!!!! My foster Momma is with me and is taking such great care of me and make sure everything goes great. We will have a “Gender Reveal” update for all our amazing supporters and followers this weekend we hope!

Puppies and new fur-Mommies need lots of “stuff” so the 3 of us would sure appreciate any donations to help get us off to a good start in life and THANK YOU! To help out just click the PayPal button below.

Initial Bio 6/24/18: Meet Avery Rose! This precious girl was surrendered to a local shelter along with a 6 pound chihuahua male. Both were in need of grooming and poor little Avery Rose’s fur was completely matted to her skin. We won’t say how bad it was exactly but let’s suffice it to say the matting was so severe it was interfering with her ability to eliminate waste. Enough said. Avery Rose was whisked off to an expert groomer and a few hours later she was shaved to the skin except for her beautiful face that the groomer worked diligently to preserve. Now this precious girl shines like the beautiful star that she is! Next stop was of course the Vet to check her out medically and man……..WERE WE IN FOR A HUGE SURPRISE!(Drum rolls in the background……..). Sweet little Avery Rose is PREGNANT! Yes UYR fans, we are getting the nursery ready because when the Vet noticed her "girl parts" looked a bit “unusual” the Vet suggested an abdominal ultrasound and they saw that Avery Rose is carrying at least two and possibly three EXTRA PASSENGERS! We can’t know for sure, but we think that Avery’s baby-Daddy is most likely the little chihuahua boy that was surrendered along with her. We could not bear the thought of him languishing in the shelter so we found him placement with a chihuahua rescue so now he too is SAFE. He is a beautiful 6 pound chi-baby who is white with caramel spots so we just know that Avery Rose’s puppies will be ADORABLE.

Needless to say, Avery Rose will not be adoptable for quite some time. She is about half-way through her pregnancy so we have at least another month to wait before she is due. The pups will need to be 12 weeks or so before Avery Rose has done her part as their Mom and then she will need to be spayed and brought up to date on all her care so Avery Rose will be spending the summer and most of the fall in her foster home. We are just OVER THE MOON EXCITED to have Avery Rose and her 2-3 precious passengers now SAFE and being cared for and on PUPPY BABY WATCH (and we know you are too so we will try to update her status often)! Avery Rose is going to need more care, as will her puppies when they arrive so any donations to the Avery Rose maternity fund would be greatly appreciated! To donate, please click the PayPal button below and THANK YOU!

Oakley Reid

Adopted - Oakley is a 3 year old, 12 pound yorkie being fostered outside of Nashville, TN

Beautiful Sissy is Waiting for You!
Tennessee
Sissy

Sissy is a beautiful 8-year-old, 11 pound Yorkie mix being fostered in Memphis, TN.

Initial Bio 9/10/18

Meet sweet Sissy who just entered rescue today! Before going further....we need to issue this important ADOPTION CAUTION to potential adopters from Sissy’s foster Mom and we quote....”I’m fairly sure Sissy has lap magnets implanted in her body”..... so those of you who are lacking in the lap department need not apply LOL!

Sissy comes to us from an elderly owner who was no longer able to give Sissy the time and attention she needs. But make no mistake.... Sissy has been well loved and well cared for. She only needs to have her teeth cleaned and she will be ready for adoption. Sissy is most likely a Yorkie-Schnauzer Mix. She has a beautiful full tail and a bit longer body than a pure Yorkie but she is ADORABLE as you can see from her photos. She is house-trained, other dog friendly and did not blink at the ferral kitties her foster Mom feeds. She was around grandchildren in her former home. Sissy is going to make some lucky adopter very happy so if you think you have the PAWFECT home and LAP for Sissy then apply to adopt her today!


To date we've spent $419.53 on Sissy's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

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

UPDATE 9/13/18: 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 3 pound and 1 pound 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!! 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 ❤

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!


To date we've spent $12462.90 on Hank's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $9999.99 in donations.

Helen
Texas
Helen

Meet sweet Helen.Helen is an estimated 10-year-old, 10 lb girl being fostered in TX

THANK YOU TO HELEN'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Allison Stevens, Veronica Mercer, Maggie Blake, Rebecca Lansing, Jane St. John, Christine Flaherty, Matthew Scott Gann, John Sauser, Tony Cacioppo, Trula Montgomery, Milagros Toro, John Ward

6/4/18: Helen has come so far however she is still on her journey to complete physical health. She is a very smart little girl with just the right amount of confidence. The dry infected skin that once covered most of her little body has been replaced with healthy pink skin and even some hair. Recently her progression had slowed down so we visited the doggie dermatologist. We found that she had an infection in her ear canal and a yeast infection that was not responding to the antibiotics that she was taking. We have just made the change and are excited to watch the progress.

It is hard to imagine that Helen’s life was as difficult and painful as it must have been. She loves everything about life, the simplest things make her so happy. She loves to run outside and squint her little eyes at the sun. She loves her people, the other dogs, car rides and most especially dinner time. She is sweet, funny and a joy to love.

On 6/3/18 Helen was just not herself. We got her to the vet quickly and as suspected she had developed an infection in the lining of her uterus. Having been a mill mom we have kept a close watch on her. With the doctor’s recommendation we held off on her spay to let her skin heal however time was up. She came through her urgent spay surgery with flying colors, she even had a good dental while she slept. Her only complaint was that she only got half of her dinner the night of her surgery.

We will continue to make sure that Helen has all the love and care needed to be the best that she can be. If you would like to assist us with Helen’s journey your can visit her on our website.

Update Bio. 4/3/18. Helen is making great progress, both physically and emotionally. She loves hanging with the pack, eating and being near her person. Helen is a very smart little girl, she has learned to go outside for business and then sit for her treat. Helen gets a medicated bath followed by a coconut oil rub down several times a week, and it's paying off. Her hair is starting to grow as her skin gets healthier, and she doesn't itch nearly as much. Helen still has a long road in front of her. Once her skin is healthy, she will undergo surgery to remove several mammary tumors and cysts. Helen's doctors are encouraged by her progress. Hopefully, we will have the sweet girl at her best in no time. Thank you to Helen's donors for being part of her story. She's so sweet and so worth the time and love invested in her. We will keep you posted on her progress.

Initial Bio. 03/07/18. Helen comes to UYR as an abandoned dog used in breeding. She was discarded by her owners when she was no longer of any value to them. She is most likely about 10 yrs old and weighs 9.7lbs.

Despite the fact that her skin is infected and she has lost most of her hair, it is obvious that she is relieved to be in the arms of love and safety. Although Helen is in constant discomfort, she not only wags her tail but she gladly gives the sweetest kisses. Fortunately, she is HW negative and it has been determined that her skin issues are probably untreated infections induced by either fleas or allergies. She has had a full blood panel which will help us to determine next steps. Helen gets along with her new fur siblings and is catching on quickly to the routines. There is a beautiful Yorkie under all of this neglect but Helen will need our help. If you would like to help us help her reach the best life ever please visit our website. We appreciate our donors so much. Without you the Helen's don't ever know love. Thank you for your consideration of becoming part of Helen's happy life.


To date we've spent $1678.11 on Helen's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $900.00 in donations.

Meet precious Jackson. Jackson is a 6 lb. boy being fostered in TX.

THANK YOU TO JACKSON'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta

UPDATE BIO: 08/30/18. 4 to 6yr old Jackson is having such a hard time. He was surrendered as a 4 month failed attempt to find an owner. However, we most definitely feel he was likely a dump due to his horrible state. This sweet angel had the worst oral infection and lost all of his teeth with the exception of maybe 6.

Immediately following surgery and after the the trach tube removal, his trachea fully collapsed, so it was a rush to the ER for the oxygen chamber overnight and sedation meds. He is now recouping at home. Pleas send some love and prayers his way... he is just a little love bundle!!!

INITIAL BIO. 08/27/18. This sweet little 6lbs of cuteness just arrived in our care. Jackson came to us an owner surrender. I can tell you he is a doll, he gets along with other dogs, both big and small, as well as cats. We will take him this week for vetting so stayed tuned for his availability.


To date we've spent $1516.91 on Jackson's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $25.00 in donations.

Meet Lulu, a precious 2 year old, 6 pound girl who is being fostered in Gainesville, TX. Please help us with the costs of her liver shunt surgery.

THANK YOU TO LULU'S RESCUE ANGELS!

UPDATE BIO: 09/20/18. She's just beautiful, and she's about to be ready for her forever home! Lulu, a petite lil 2yr old sweet angel, was flown in as an emergency to Texas as she was near death with liver shunt. No longer able to eat, she was bleeding from the rectum, and her body and organs were shutting down. For all of the 2 yrs of her life, her liver did not have proper blood flow. Not only does the liver slowly start to die, but the toxins that are trapped poison the body which eventually leads to death. Immediately, she was rushed to the ER, and later that next morning she was transferred to a critical care ER.

Lulu stayed for about a week and a half, was stabilized and went through extensive tests confirming her shunt and finally surgery. We came home a week later on 8 meds and we are now down to 1. She has defied all odds and her doctors truly did not think she would ever survive. Look at that face now!! Lulu will have her bile acids test run for the last time on Tuesday and I am hoping for perfect results so all meds will be nixed! United Yorkie Rescue has spent a hefty 10K plus on this sweet angel, so any donations toward her care, or any of our babies care, is so greatly appreciated. (www.uyr.us)

Lulu is just a sweetheart of a little girl. She loves her humans, and she loves a blanket and to play with her piggy. She is also a snuggle bug and is always wanting to be held or in a lap. She is a little timid around other dogs, but if my Abby has her way, she will have her playing in no time. She gets along with all animals as well. She's still just a baby so she has many years now to give so much love to a purfect home. If you have a house full of love and are looking for a little princess, please go to the Looking for Love section on our website, scroll to Texas, and then to Lulu, and fill out the application. Thank you again for loving our babies!!

UPDATE BIO. 08/30/18. From 8 meds to 5 and from 7lbs to maybe 4, but that's ok, United Yorkie Rescue Lulu is a liver shunt critical care survivor! We go next week for a chem panel to check liver values and if all is good, we eliminate more meds and start the process of introducing foods to her as well.

It won't be until 6 weeks that we recheck her bile acids, which clearly would indicate we can breathe and eliminate seizure meds and glucose! Isn't she just the sweetest thing!! Please know, UYR has many many medical dogs. After all we are a rescue, and we need you and appreciate your love and donations for our babies. If you can't donate, please share Lulu's story... thank you!! www.uyr.us

UPDATE BIO 08/21/18: Lulu is still in ICU. She had her scintigraphy today which lets us know if she is a candidate for surgery and thankfully she is! Her blood values are still horrific but we have the window still open. Please remember, we have had this precious 2 yr old baby in ICU since last week. We have utilized dynamic imaging and biopsies of her liver today, and we have critical surgery on Thursday. We have a pretty hefty rescue bill that is mounting and we need your help. This baby has been sick with a liver shunt since birth and she deserves her happy ending. Thank you in advance for your love, prayers and donations. www.uyr.us

08/16/18. UPDATE BIO: Lulu was transferred from the ER to the Diagnostic clinic at 7am this morning. She will remain in the ICU to receive supportive care prior to going under anesthesia for testing on Tuesday. Testing will include a biopsy of her liver, as well. Prayers for good results, and then God willing surgery. Per her vet, there is more going on than a liver shunt and she suspects a GI condition, the treatment for which is contradictory for that of a liver shunt patient. Currently she is being treated for the GI condition to stem bleeding and diarrhea and stabilize her so that she can undergo more diagnostic testing. Her shunt may be inoperable which means we'll have to find a balance between treating the liver disease and the GI disease. Lulu needs your prayers.

PLEASE, can you help us. UYR is currently close to $6000.00 in medical and we still have diagnostics and surgery. We could not say no to this baby and this sweet 2 year old wants to live and deserves to. Please make your donation at www.uyr.us. We thank you because without your help we could not save these angels.

Initial Bio 8/15/18: Lulu came from a loving home and her owner has been distraught over her health. Sadly Lulu is a very sick little girl with a suspected liver shunt condition. No owner expects their pup to need such a costly surgery and with a heavy heart, Lulu's mom made the decision to surrender her to United Yorkie Rescue. Tonight with the help of DELTA DART and coordinator Corrine R and transporter Yvette V, Lulu will arrive from California into Dallas-Fort Worth and will be picked up by her new foster mom who will take her immediately to the ER for stabilization and monitoring. Once she is stable, she can receive the necessary diagnostic tests to confirm she has a liver shunt, hopefully one that is operable. All of this can run as much as $6000. We are asking our village of wonderful supporters to help us save this little 2 year old, 6 pound girl's life. Please join in her care and help us help Lulu. You can go on our website at www.uyr.us and click our donate button! We cannot do this without you and we thank you in advance for your love and care!


To date we've spent $10892.96 on Lulu TX's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1191.00 in donations.

Rambo

Rambo

Meet Rambo. He is an adorable 9 year old, 12 pound sweetheart being fostered in Plano, TX.

THANK YOU TO RAMBO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Elizabeth Sandelis

INITIAL BIO. 08/13/18. Sweet Rambo was found roaming the streets over a month ago. Luckily, he found an amazing lady that saved this sweet baby. Elizabeth made sure this little angel saw the vet, received his immunizations and searched for his owner. As you can see in the picture, she was truly an amazing savior for sweet Rambo down to the grooming. However, her household is full so thee search began for his owner. The daughter of the owner saw this baby posted and recognized this little one as her parents dog. When Elizabeth addressed getting this baby back to his owner, they declined. They stated they could no longer care for him. So whatcha gonna do,,,accept this cuties surrender to United Yorkie Rescue!!! ❤

Though we just picked up this little guy and we are getting to know him, he is absolutely a sweetheart and has fit right into my pack of adorable Yorkies. He does have an issue with one of his eyes that appears to be a luxating lens, so he will see the eye specialist this week to address this.

Please stay tuned as we see to his medical and we can update on this sweet boy's progress. As always, please know we have many many medical dogs in rescue so any donations made to UYR can take the burden off our costs and allow us to rescue another. Donations can be made to www.uyr.us on our Paypal button, and please send all inquiries related to Rambo to olgauyrtx@gmail.com.

Zee
West Virginia
Zee

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

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 $0 on Zee's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Avery
Wisconsin
Avery

Meet Avery, a 1.5 year old, 17 pound Yorkie Mix. He is being fostered near Sheboygan, WI.

THANK YOU TO AVERY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Wendy Klinke

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 $38.00 on Avery's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $38.00 in donations.
Please donate!

MJ
Wisconsin
Michael

Michael (formerly MJ) is a 10-year-old, 13 pound Yorkie boy who is being fostered near Madison, WI.

THANK YOU TO MICHAEL'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Trula Montgomery

7/24/18: Well it’s that time for an update on this handsome boy who we lovingly are calling MJ!

What can I say that I haven’t said before. MJ is still looking for that perfect home where he can be loved for the rest of his precious life. He is

a happy, healthy 12 pound 10 year old gentleman who loves to be outside, playing with his humans or just snuggling on the couch next to the people he loves. Everyone who has met him has fallen in love with him. He gets along with men and women alike. He can get a bit nippy with younger children so a home with no children under 10 years of age would be required. A fenced in yard is a must due to his love of the outdoors and his frequent chasing of squirrels and rabbits, not to mention other neighborhood pets.

MJ does not like other dogs in his space so a home without dogs or cats is non-negotiable! Apartment living would not be in his best interests as well. If you have any questions concerning MJ, please send me an email at quietcourt2@yahoo.com and I would be happy to provide additional information.

05/14/18. Update Bio. Hello everyone! Just an update on Michael! He is still looking for his forever home ❤️. Michael is a very healthy 10 year who loves to go for walks, play with toys, cruise around his fenced in back yard, and snuggle with humans. He knows how to sit and shake and takes treats from you so very gently! Michael sleeps with us in bed and is a very good sleeper.

He is very jealous of other dogs and would love to be the only one in your home so a home without other pets would be best. Also do to his love of the outside he must have a fenced in back yard.

If your think your home is perfect for super sweet Michael please go to www.uyr.us and fill out an application I would be happy to answer any questions you have about Michael. 😊

04/18/18. Update Bio. Hello everyone. A little story to tell. Michael has left his previous foster because I had one that needed more attention that Michaels foster mommy was much suited to handle. So yesterday Michael came to stay with me. I have to say I am so in love with Michael. The transition from his previous foster home to mine has gone without a hitch. He has settled in so nicely and he is the perfect gentleman. He gets along with my two Yorkies just fine. He has a nice appetite and is the perfect cuddle bug. He is wearing a belly band these days because his previous foster home had a doggie door which he had no problem using and I’m sure within the next day or two once he learns the routine here the belly band will be adios 😬.

Although he is 10 years of age don’t let that deter you from adopting this sweet fellow. He acts much younger. He still has so much to give and is looking for his forever home Will consider adopting to a home with children over the age of 12 Any questions please feel free to email me at quietcourt2@yahoo.com. To fill out an application to adopt go to www.uyr.us.

03/20/18. Initial Bio. Hello my name is Michael and I’m a 10 year old handsome Yorkie boy. I do have a strong but loving personality. I would love to be the top dog, but will take the role as cuddle buddy also.

My foster home has lots of activity going on almost all the time, and unlike my foster brothers and sister, I don’t bark and cause a bunch of noise.

I’m a good boy with lots of love to share with the right person of family.
