Gunny Gibbs

Gunny Gibbs is a 14 year old, 8 pound yorkie boy being fostered near Bryant, AR.

THANK YOU TO GUNNY GIBBS' RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Barbara Burgess, Susannah Keith

Updated Bio 2/9/20: Sweet Gunny is just the perfect little gentleman and companion. He will not jump up on the couch with you sitting there unless he is invited. He loves to follow you from room to room or just lay close where he can see you. He has an adorable tiny snore and loves to nap with you. He will also sleep in his bed in the bedroom floor if that is what you prefer. Gunny loves fuzzy, warm blankets! He has gained a little weight and looks cuter every day as his initial grooming grows out a bit. He is housebroken as long as he gets outside often enough. He rarely barks, only if you are on one side of the door, and he is on the other. Gunny has had all his shots, a dental, is microchipped and neutered. He is the ideal little boy to keep you company and truly loves his humans. If you are interested in the sweet boy email Foster mom at Jackies@unitedyorkiereacue.org.

Update 1/30/20:

Having had more time to get to know Gunny Gibbs, his foster mom says he is super sweet and a joy to be around. He was an owner surrender who needed more attention than his owner was able to give. He does have cataracts due to his age, but he does not have any vision problems at all. His hearing is great. He has large brown eyes that look at you with love and just melt your heart.

It is hard to convey in writing just how easy he is to love. He is not a barker and is a very companionable and affectionate little man. He is not a nervous dog, very laid back and easy going. Gunny likes to be with you, napping on the couch or just following you around the house.. He likes to lay close to you or in your lap and attaches to his person very quickly. He loves men and women equally. If taken out often enough, he does not have accidents in the house. He travels well in a crate but does not like be confined at home. He does well on a leash. He hates to have his nails clipped. Gunny loves to run in the fenced yard. He is somewhat shy around larger dogs, so would be good as an only dog or with smaller dogs.

He can do fine if left alone for work, but does get sad if left alone too many hours. He is working on his potty training. He will enthusiastically greet you at the door whether gone 8 minutes or 8 hours! He is such a joy, it is hard to say just how great this little one is.

Initial Bio 1/2720: Gunny has just came into rescue please stay tuned as we find out more about this special boy .


To date we've spent $640.33 on Gunny Gibbs's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $145.00 in donations.

Holly Berry

Holly is a estimated 10 year old, 9- pound yorkie girl being fostered near Bryant, AR.

THANK YOU TO HOLLY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Erin Brooks

Updated bio 2/9/20: This little girl just gets sweeter every day. She is very mild mannered and easy going. The only time she barks is when it is time to eat. Since she is on a diet, she gets really excited about her meal times! Holly had her dental, her cherry eye growth removed, and her spay, and is ready to go home with you. She prances around and has the cutest little wiggle. Holly is still working on her housebreaking, but if she is taken out often enough, she will not have accidents in the house. Holly is feeling so much better with her weight loss and when she goes outside to potty, she proudly comes back to her foster mom after she does her business. She loves to hear Good girl Holly. Holly came to us at 9.9 pounds and is doing very well on her diet. She has already lost a whole pound making her now 8.9! This little girl is a true companion dog. She is too short legged to jump up on the furniture, but she loves it when you help her up to lay beside you. Love is this little girl's middle name! The vet techs called her Snuggly! If you are interested in this sweet girl please email Foster mom at jackies@unitedyorkierescue.org

Update 1/30/20:

Holly Berry is super sweet and a joy to be around. She does have cataracts, but in her foster home, it does not appear her vision is impaired.

It is hard to convey in writing just how easy she is to love. She is a very calm little lady. She is not a nervous dog and very laid back and easy going. She loves to be where you are and attaches to her person very quickly. If taken out often enough, she does not have accidents in the house. She is crate trained, but she hates to be in a crate. She does well on a leash. Holly is a hoot. She will play with a toy as long as you are holding it and playing with her. Her favorite toy is her bed. She will turn it over, bit it shake it, or just climb in and out in her own little game. She is frisky and playful for her age. Holly is just so cute, she has short little legs and an adorable little waddle. She does not do anything fast, just in her own sweet time.

Holly Berry does not mind being left alone for short periods. She would prefer a home without small or young children. Her history with children or cats is unknown as she was in a shelter previously.

12/28/2019

Holly is a estimated 10 year hold 9 lb yorkie girl who was a stray and placed in a high-kill shelter. She has cataracts but seems to get around pretty well... She is sweet and well behaved. Please stay tuned for more updates as we get to know Holly and get her to the Dogtor to be checked out.

I am a handsome senior boy

I am looking for my forever home. Maybe it is yours.
Florida
Buster MacPaws

Buster MacPaws is a beautiful senior yorkie who is 13 years old and weighs an itty bitty 6 pounds. He is being fostered in Bradenton, FL.

UPDATED BIO 02/14/2020: Buster is a sweet and gentle senior boy who has been in his foster home for a week. He was sadly surrendered by his former owners because there were several young children & a new-born in the home, and they were unable to provide little Buster MacPaws with the attention he deserved. All Buster needs is a soft place to lay his head with the love and care every dog deserves.

Buster loves to sit on his person's lap or sit next to them. He is a big-time cuddler. Even though Buster is 13 years old, he is a very fit and active senior fella who was used to having a fenced-in back yard to wander around in, but he tolerates the walks in his foster home. He also loves to follow his person all over the house - he is very dedicated to his humans. Buster will run to the door to let you know he needs to go outside to do his business, but it will take him a few days for him to learn the routine in his new home. He listens very well and knows basic commands like come, sit, stay, etc.

Buster likes to sleep in his little crate, and when he hears "time for bed", he will run and get into it. He gets along fine with other dogs - any size - but would also be happy to be the one and only prince in the home. Buster MacPaws will bring a lot of love and happiness to the lucky family who adopts him. Although his former home had young children and he did very well with them, due to his small size he cannot be adopted into a home with children under the age of 12 years old.

INITIAL BIO 02/08/2020: This sweet gentle boy just arrived at his foster home. He was sadly surrendered by his former owners because there were several young children & a newborn in the home, and they were unable to provide little Buster MacPaws with the attention he deserved. All Buster needs is a soft place to lay his head with the love and care every dog deserves.

Buster may be older, but he is smart, energetic and in excellent health. He will see the vet soon for a well-doggie check. Busters foster dad said he is so very sweet and loving. He is gentle and just wants to cuddle up next to his person. Please dont let Busters age deter you from adopting this little fella. He has some wonderful years left to give and receive the love he deserves. It will take the right person to adopt this sweet boy and understand that he deserves to live out his remaining years in the arms of someone who will love him until the end.

PLEASE NOTE: Even though Buster MacPaws has been in a home with children, due to his size he cannot be adopted into a home with children under the age of 12.


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

I am so adorable

I am really a sweet boy
Florida
Cody

Cody is an adorable 3.5-year-old tiny Pomeranian or Pomeranian mix little boy pup. Cody is now the healthy puppy he was meant to be. Cody weighs a little-too-skinny 5 pounds. He should be closer to 5.5 pounds. He is being fostered in Leesburg, FL.

THANK YOU TO CODY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Arlene Spatz

UPDATED BIO 02/15/2020: Cody has only been in his foster home for just over 2 weeks. Although his foster parents are seeing a slow improvement each day, he is still a timid little guy, and just not sure of people. When he is picked up, he kind of freezes instead of relaxing in your arms, though we find him relaxing a little more in our arms. We are not sure why that is, we can only assume he has had little human contact in his short life. When we are in the bedroom and slowly approach him, he will still back up and go under the bed, however he is coming out from there and watching us more and more and now we can tell he wants to be picked up and put on the bed to be with us. In other areas of the house we often find him in the same room with us without our having taken him there.

Cody is underweight and putting weight on him is not easy. He has gained 4 ounces. He doesn't eat much and is very picky. He seems to only like lean chop meat and we have found a dog food that he does like. But even then, he won't eat too much of it. He gets a doggie vitamin to supplement his poor eating.

We are also not sure if he is house-trained. He will go outside, but it is possible he does his business inside too. He appears to be good in the car. Every time he has been in the car, and he has had a few long trips, he has lain down and slept and never made a sound the whole trip.

For some reason, and foster mom was told it was a Pomeranian thing, he has this screech when he is not happy when his foster parents are holding him or touching him in a way he doesn't like - especially around his face. At first, they thought something was hurting him terribly, but after a careful and thorough physical exam by the vet, there is nothing hurting him. He uses it to his advantage. His foster parents no longer pay any attention to the screech and continue holding or petting him.

Cody still needs more work with socialization skills. He has to get to the point where he likes being with people and learns they are okay to trust. He was great when he was being brushed and combed. He does need to brushed and combed often since Poms are a double-coated breed, and his coat is very soft and full and fluffy.

Cody's foster parents are working with him every day several times a day to make him more and more comfortable with people. It is hoped that in the next few weeks Cody will be a different pup, that he will like people, want to be with them, and know that people are his friends. Cody is a sweet dog who has shown no aggression to anyone, people or the other dogs in the home. Cody would most like a home where he is the only dog, since he doesn't bother with the other dogs at all and doesnt even seem to like them. He would love a stay-at-home, or home a lot of the time, person who can continue to work with him on his socialization skills.

Cody is a pretty low-energy dog. He barks very little. His foster parents have never seen him play with a toy or with anything else. He follows them outside and will walk around the fenced back yard, then follow them and the other dogs back in, but he never runs, though they have seen him sort of do a little slow trot. The hope is that this will change too when Cody continues to relax around people.

Cody recently had a complete physical exam at the vet. His bloodwork was good and showed no signs of any illness. His blood sugar was a little low, though the vet was not concerned. She feels this is because of his poor eating habits. The vet believes as he continues to eat better this will improve. His overall health is great and his labs and physical exam showed that he is in very good health. Everything is exactly as it should be for a dog as young as Cody.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Cody's very small size he needs an adult only home or a home with children 15 years old and older. No young children, please. At this time Cody's foster parents feel that with his difficulty in adjusting to new people and situations and what can happen when he goes to a new home, he can only be adopted in Florida. Cody will need a home with a person or people who understand that he may regress back to old behaviors in a new situation. Whoever adopts Cody must be willing to understand that he will need time, patience, lots of love, and the understanding that it may take weeks for Cody to again settle into any new situation including a new home and new people.

If you feel you are that one person who can give Cody his perfect home, and have what he needs and can give him what he needs in a forever home, please fill out an adoption application for this adorable, yet timid and shy little guy.

Initial Bio 1/27/20 Little Cody ended up in the shelter, though no one was sure why he ended up there. He was on the adoption floor because, after all, who wouldn't want such a cute little fellow? When the potential adopter went to visit him, she grabbed at him in the cage. In his defense, scared Cody nipped at her. Of course, they didn't want him anymore. They said he was aggressive, and so Cody went from the adoption floor to the For Rescue Only area. There he waited for someone to give him a chance because he knew he really was a good boy. This little guy needed out of the shelter and into someones loving arms soon, and that is what United Yorkie Rescue did. The gave him that chance. The shelter said Cody is a Pomeranian mix but they are not sure what he mixed with, if anything, but it didn't matter. This tiny fellow needed out of the shelter and soon and Pomeranian or Yorkie he was getting out. The big dogs, the barking, the noise, not having anyone loving him was more than he could take.

Cody was perfect in the car ride to his foster home. He let his foster mom put a harness on him. He loved her petting him and even laid his head down on her hand so she could rub under his ears and neck. Since arriving at his foster home has been a perfect little doggie and has not showed a single sign of aggression to anyone-- his foster mom, dad, or any of his new fur friends. He didn't eat much dinner but he has joined everyone going outside to do his business. He is taking his time getting to settle in, but so far, he is the sweetest little guy ever.

Cody needs to be neutered and he needs a dental. He has his first vet visit tomorrow and we will know a more about his health. He will need to stay in his foster home until his foster parents are sure his behavior is perfect. We do know that because of Cody's size he will not be able to be adopted into a home with children under the age of 14. There is so much more to know about Cody the cutie, so come back soon. At this time Codys foster parents feel that with Codys difficulty in adjusting to new people and situations and what can happen when he goes to a new home he can only be adopted in Florida.


To date we've spent $429.49 on Cody's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $100.00 in donations.

After surgery on my leg. Ouchie

Jax

MEET JAX. He is a very sweet little yorkie who is 5 years old and only weighs 6.5 lbs. Jax is being fostered in Ocala, FL.

THANK YOU TO JAX' RESCUE ANGELS!

Mark Baker, Barbara Burgess, Angie Cagle, Wendy Fuhrmaneck

THANK YOU TO JAX' FACEBOOK DONORS!

Karry Rogers, Leslie Corbell, Al Baker, Barbara Hausner, Renee Mack

UPDATED BIO 01/31/2020: Little Jax found himself at the shelter - alone and scared - and due to a weakness in his hindquarters which could potentially be an old injury or possibly caused by him being in his crate most of the time, the shelter reached out to United Yorkie Rescue. Jax has been in his foster home only a few days, but he has a lot to say.

Read Jax's diary below:

Jax here. When I arrived in my new foster home, I was having a problem walking on both hind legs. My foster mommy took me to the vet immediately. I had my teeth cleaned and had an FHO (Femoral Head Osteotomy). The nice doctor said this was an attempt to restore pain-free mobility to a diseased or damaged hip. But - there is ANOTHER BIG PROBLEM. I am now favoring both hind legs and have not been able to stand up. Once again, another trip to the doctor. I was given a laser treatment to stimulate cell regeneration and increase blood circulation. I will continue to have these treatments for two to three weeks. My foster mommy also has to massage my hips and help me stand until I feel comfortable walking on my legs. I love the massages and love my foster mommy and she tells me that I will feel better really soon.

Now to the best part, my foster mommy has a shoulder sling that she puts me in. I LOVE to be carried around in that when I am not exercising. My foster mommy said I am adorable and a little love bug. I have four furry foster brothers and I get along fine with them. However, I would prefer to be an only dog so I can get all the attention I feel I deserve. I do not like to be left alone - I would like a home where there is at least one stay-at-home parent. I am a little fella and for that reason, I would not do well with children. Lastly, NO CRATE for me. My former owners crated me all the time and the vet strongly suspects that is why I have problems with my hips.

It will take me some time to recover; I most likely will not be available for adoption for at least two months. That makes me sad but I do love my foster mommy so it will be okay. I will send updates periodically so everyone will know of my progress. Oh, one more thing. My vetting expenses to get me better are mounting up, so if you have been moved by my story, please consider making a donation to UYR so that they can continue to help other little doggies like me.

PLEASE NOTE: Jax would prefer to be an only dog and at least one stay-at-home parent. Due to his small size, he must go to an adult-only home.

INITIAL BIO 01/27/2020: Little Jax found himself at the shelter - alone and scared - and due to a weakness in his hindquarters which could potentially be an old injury, the shelter reached out to United Yorkie Rescue. Of course, we were happy to rush to the shelter to get him.

Jax is very sweet and his sweet disposition was even noted by the shelter staff. He is an itty bitty little boy who will see the vet tomorrow to determine the nature of his hind weakness, so please stay tuned for more information on this little fella.

I am a very special little girl.
Florida
Missy

This little sweetie is Missy. She is a 2-year-old Morkie (Maltese/Yorkie mix) who weighs 9 lbs. Missy is being fostered in Orlando, FL.

THANK YOU TO MISSY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta

UPDATED BIO 02/02/2020: Hi yall, Missy here. I'm a very sweet little southern belle. I think I am a Morkie, a Maltese/Yorkie mix. Unfortunately, not much more is known about me and my past.

My owners got me from a breeder, but said they were not provided with complete information about me, mainly the status of my shots and the fact that I am very timid and afraid of so many things. Because of this, I wanted to spend most of my time in my crate and when my owners opened the door, I would take the opportunity to run away. They were an older couple and it was hard for them to chase me and I was a bit more than they could handle. They contacted United Yorkie Rescue and here I am at my sweet foster moms home. My foster mom feels she can help me become a more confident doggie. It will take some time, but in the end, I think I will be a doggie my new family will really love and I will really love them back.

Here's a few things my foster mom knows about me. I am a good eater. She feeds me really yummy food. I get along very well with my fur sister, Leia. We give each other kisses. I love to spend some time with my foster mom and she holds me on her lap and loves on me. She tells me I am a good girl and how pretty I am. She carries me around in a sling which helps me feel very safe.

That's about it for now. Please stay tuned for more updates as my foster mom gets to know me better. When I am ready to go to my furever home, I'll let everyone know. I am learning how to trust again and foster mom is very patient and loving with me and is teaching me how to overcome her fear and distrust of people. I know that she will find me the perfect home. Missy out for now.

PLEASE NOTE: It is preferred that Missy adopter(s) reside in central Florida.

Initial Bio 1/30/20 Missy is a scared and timid little girl. No one is sure what caused her to be so scared and timid that when people try to get close to her, she retreats into her crate. She will tremble when approached and will not come to anyone. The only way to get Missy to be with her people is to catch her, then she will sit with her people, but is not happily. Missy is a runner and if given the opportunity to escape through any open door she will take it as an invitation to run and not allow herself to be caught.

Missy just recently arrived at her foster home. Her foster mom will be working very hard with her to overcome her fear and distrust of people. Missy will need to learn to trust people, to understand they are her friends and not the enemy. It may take time for Missy to unlearn those lessons of hurt and fear and learn how to love and trust.

We are not yet sure what Missy would need in a forever home, but we do know she most likely needs to have a home with a secure fenced yard and no doors that have an easy access to the outside when they are opened.

Please follow along on Missy's journey towards a new life, a life that is free of fear, and replaced with a life that is free to love and trust in the goodness of people.

PLEASE NOTE: It is preferred that Missy adopter(s) reside in central Florida.


To date we've spent $403.82 on Missy's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $25.00 in donations.

I am cute. And I know it.

And I am a happy little boy who is deserving of a forever home.
Florida
Parker

MEET PARKER. Parker is an adorable little yorkie who is 3 years old and weighs 8.3 lbs. Parker is being fostered in North Port, FL.

THANK YOU TO PARKER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta

UPDATED BIO 01/17/2020: Parker has been in his foster home for five weeks now and is doing very well. This little boy didnt have such a great start in life. He was born paralyzed in his pelvic limbs (rear legs) and was unable to walk. His front limbs are normal. Parker has improved with his mobility and is able to ambulate reasonably well although he is uncoordinated and will fall over if he gets too excited. PLEASE NOTE! Due to Parker's disabilities, he can only go into a home with children over the age of 14 years old.

Parker now has a doggie wheelchair and he is not so excited about it at this point, but his foster mom continues to put him in there several times a day in the hopes that he will become more comfortable and confident in it as the wheelchair will give him much more mobility.

Parker loves to be with his person and be the center of attention he is definitely a Velcro dog. And he loves everyone he meets what a sweetie! He wants to be with his person all the time and will follow his foster mom all over the house. He does have some control over his bladder but wears a bellyband in the house since he will dribble a bit when he gets excited. At this time, he doesnt have control over his bowel movements, but that may change as he becomes more mobile. Parker will also do his business outside when he is taken out on a regular basis.

Please don't turn away from this precious little boy due to his disability. He is a happy and content little nugget who will bring so much love to his forever family. If you have a special place in your heart and home for a little adorable wheelchair baby like Parker, please consider adopting him. Due to his disability, Parker does need at least one stay-at-home parent to take him out regularly and attend to his needs.

PLEASE NOTE! Due to Parker's disabilities, he can only go into a home with children over the age of 14 years old.

INITIAL BIO 12/06/2019: Parker is an adorable little yorkie boy who didn't have such a great start in life. He was paralyzed in his pelvic limbs (rear legs) at birth and was unable to walk - his front limbs are normal. Parker has improved with his mobility and is able to ambulate reasonably well although he is uncoordinated and will fall over if he gets too excited.

Parker has been with a wonderful owner since he was 8 weeks old who has diligently worked with him and cared for him, but her life situation has recently changed and she is no longer able to care for him. He must wear a bellyband at all times since he will dribble urine from time to time, but will also do his business outside when taken out.

It is hoped that UYR will be able to get Parker a doggie cart/wheelchair which will improve his mobility tremendously. This is a big expense, so if you have been moved by Parker's story, please consider making a donation to UYR so that we can help this little man become even more mobile.


To date we've spent $0 on Parker's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $125.00 in donations.

Look at me. I am really a beautiful princess.

Did I say I love belly rubs?
Florida
Princess

MEET PRINCESS. Princess is in adorable little 9 year old yorkie who weighs 7 lbs. Princess is being fostered in Miami, FL.

THANK YOU TO PRINCESS' RESCUE ANGELS!

Stefan Alderding, Christine Flaherty, Donna Williams, Lisa HackeBeloskur, Alexa Socha, Ellen Chokreff, Angelo Cuva, Denise Garrett, Kristi Hedberg, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Amy Schutz, Karry Rogers, Holly Keller, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Cora Peterson, Yakelin Queija, Suzan Robison, Dale Chambers, Yakelin Queija

UPDATED BIO 02/15/2020: Little Princess' life has completely turned around since she arrived in UYR 2-1/2 months ago. She is in perfect health, eating well and has fully adjusted to her foster home. Princess is not fond of walking on a leash, and she prefers shorter more frequent walks to enjoy the outdoors. She is, however, very active and enjoys running after lizards, birds and sniffing new surroundings when she is in a fenced-in yard, so it would be a bonus if her forever home had a fenced-in yard.

Princess likes to follow her human companion everywhere. This spoiled little girl is ready to go out for a car ride whenever she hears the sound of keys. Having said this, she tends to be a runner if she feels left behind. She always wants to be with her person. On a safer note, Princess wants to jump off the bed or the sofa to follow her foster mom. She is a petite little girl and needs to be put down on the floor to avoid injuries - always.

One thing that had not changed is her love for humans and meeting new people. Oh, and the fact that she would prefer a quiet home with mellow folks who love to listen to light relaxing music. Hey, this little girlie has culture! Princess continues to be not so fond of other dogs when they try to socialize with her, so she needs to be an only dog in her adoptive home so that she can bask in all the attention. She loves cuddling in bed, belly rubs, interacting with her foster mom and playing with squeaky toys. Princess is a beautiful, gentle, happy little girl full of joy and love who is looking for that some lucky human(s) to share it with.

PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING:

- Due to Princess's small size, she can only be adopted into an adult-only home.

- Princess must be adopted within the State of Florida.

- A home with at least one stay-at-home parent would be optimum as she loves being with her person all the time.

- Princess needs to be the only dog in her adoptive home.

UPDATED BIO 01/16/2020: Great news keeps coming for Princess. She saw the vet yesterday and received her updated vaccinations and she is doing really well and is ready for her forever home. Hooray!

Princess adjusted well to her foster home and will bond quickly to her forever home as well. She is a very sweet and happy little girl. BONUS! Princess is totally house-trained and has a very hearty appetite. She loves to play, go on short walks and definitely loves belly rubs, as well as bathing in the morning sun. Princess is quite cultured and enjoys listening to light relaxing music. She does not like loud sounds or voices. She is quite the classy little lady who will bring so much joy to her forever parents,

One thing that Princess does not like is other dogs, which appear to stress her out, so she really needs a home where she is the one and only dog she does okay with kitty cats however. Princess foster mom believes that she needs a home where there is at least one stay-at-home (or work-from-home) parent since she adores being cuddled and held a lot. She is always willing to give kisses and affection and will be such a loyal and loving companion to the right home.

PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING:

- Due to Princess's small size, she can only be adopted into an adult-only home with no other dogs.

- Princess must be adopted within the State of Florida.

UPDATED BIO 12/18/2019: More great news for Princess. She has had the stitches removed from her recent surgery - hooray! She still is on antibiotics for another week, and then repeat labs will be taken to make sure all is well and she will receive her vaccinations - and be ready for adoption into her furever home.

Princess appears to get along well with the kitty cat in the home and loves all the people she has met so far. Princess has let everyone know that she loves being around kind and loving humans, so a home with perhaps one stay-at-home parent would be perfect for her. Princess has also let her Foster Mom know that she wants to be the only dog in the home - in other words, she wants to be the doggie Princess of her home! Princess appears to be house-trained - bonus!

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Princess' small size, she can only be adopted into an adult-only home with no other dogs.

UPDATED BIO 12/08/2019: HEAR YE! HEAR YE! Great News! Princess has been released from the vet's offices and is recuperating nicely from her emergency surgery for pyometra. She still has a few medical issues to figure out, but she is happy and alert. She has settled into her Foster Mom's home and is eating and drinking well. And she has no problem gobbling up her food lol! Foster Mom says that she appears to be house-trained which is a BONUS - smart girlie!

Princess appears to get along well with the kitty cat in the home and loves all the people she has met so far. We don't know her history with other dogs, so there is more to find out about this little sweetie. Princess has let everyone know that she loves being around kind and loving humans, so a home with perhaps one stay-at-home parent would be perfect for her. She still has some healing to do before she is ready for adoption, so stay tuned!

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Princess' small size, she can only be adopted into an adult-only home.

UPDATED BIO 12/05/2019: Princess has only been in her foster home for one day when things changed quickly and dramatically. She saw the vet the day after she arrived and it was discovered that she had a raging infection. After taking several abdominal radiographs, it was discovered that Princess has pyometra. Pyometra is a very dangerous infection of her uterus which a life-threatening situation which required immediate emergency surgery. Pyometra can happen to female dogs and cats who have not been spayed. This is a veterinary emergency that carries a risk of sepsis and potential death.

Princess had her surgery the very next day and is in Day #2 of her recovery. She is doing well and has shown that she had a will to live - and love - and is recuperating nicely. She will not come home for a few more days, and her foster mom can't wait to have her back home. Life is finally getting better and better for this little princess. She is active and continues to eat and drink well. She has shown that she has true grit and the will to live in spite of her recent sad circumstances.

Princess' emergency surgery is expected to be between $2,000 - $2,500.

INITIAL BIO 12/01/2019: Princess arrived today into United Yorkie Rescue's Foster Care Program. She was once someone's precious little yorkie girlie who was hopefully loved and cared for - until she became older. The family who once owned her gave her away the day before Thanksgiving because they no longer wanted to care for this sweet little girl. The kind person who they gave her to knew that Princess needed some immediate medical attention, grooming and care, so she contacted United Yorkie Rescue and, of course, we said we would take her.

Princess is such a precious little soul who loves to go for walks and readily gives kisses - her tail wags a lot - sweet!. She will likely need to be shaved down due to her extremely matted coat - she once had a topknot and probably a pretty little bow, but it was left in her hair way too long and now all she has is a knotted mess on top of her head. Her teeth appear to be really bad and she may likely lose a lot of them. Her nails are very overgrown and she appears to have been severely neglected for a very long time. But through all that, she has such a sweet and gentle personality. But everything for Princess changed today. She will be groomed and see the vet very soon so that we can determine what this little Princess needs. Please stay tuned to learn more about Princess.

If Princess' story has pulled at your heartstrings, please consider making a donation to UYR to cover her medical expenses. This will also allow United Yorkie Rescue to continue to pull little ones like Princess who are so-deserving of another chance at a forever family and love.


To date we've spent $2626.79 on Princess's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $2589.49 in donations.

I am waiting on my forever home

I will love you forever.

Sandi

Sandi is a beautiful Dachshund/Yorkie mix who is estimated to be 7-1/2 years old and weighs 12 pounds. Sandi is being fostered in N. Fort Myers, FL.

THANK YOU TO SANDI'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Nestor Sanchez, John Sauser, Sandy Pagnotta, Dawn Gowen

UPDATED BIO 02/05/2020: Sweet Sandi may be Dachshund/Yorkie mix, lovingly referred to as a Dorkie! Before coming into United Yorkie Rescue, this sweet Dorkie, through no fault of her own, found herself in 3 homes after being found as a stray. Poor Sandi was confused. She didn't understand what she doing wrong. Why didn't anyone want her? Sandi did absolutely wrong. She went from her first home and somehow ended up on the streets. At the shelter no one came looking for her. She was adopted and didn't get along with the other dog in the home. She was then taken in by United Yorkie rescue and is now waiting for her final and last forever home

Sandi came into UYR needing a complex surgery which she had. She has now fully recovered from the surgery and ready for her forever home. Due to her moving from home-to-home Sandi has not been properly socialized with other animals, and even had has a mild distrust of people and their intentions. Sandi does not do well in situations where there are strangers. This should get better as she realizes no one will raise their voice to her, or worse yet, abandon her. She is being given gentle correction and guidance and because she is so smart, she is learning what is expected of her. This confidence is beginning to lessen her fear and allow her self-reliance to take over. House-training is a work in progress, but she will use the pee-pee pads in the house. She hasn't quite gotten the knack of letting her foster mom know when she needs to go out, but she is a smart little girl who is so willing to learn through kind and gentle guidance.

Sandi's perfect home would be one that is very low-key and calm and where quiet prevails. She needs at least one stay-at-home, or home a lot, parent to take her out often, and to reassure her that her life will get better and better as time passes. Sandi would not do well with other pets or children in the home, so an adult only no other dog home for Sandi, is a definite.

Sandi likes to cuddle with her person, but is just as happy lying next to them. She loves her human family and could easily be characterized as a Velcro dog. Sandi is very trainable and responds quickly to correction. She eagerly comes when she is called. She likes sleeping in the big bed, but will sleep on her bed next to her peoples bed, if that is what they want her to do. Her barking isn't excessive and she quiets down quickly. Sandi's foster parents really do love her and feel that someone will be very lucky to have her.

PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING:

- Sandi can only be placed in a home with adults and no other dogs. No Children Please!

- Sandi needs at least one stay-at-home parent

- It is preferred that Sandi is adopted in Florida.

UPDATED BIO 01/09/2020: Sandi has now been in her UYR foster home for 4 weeks. Before coming into rescue, this sweet girlie was passed around in 3 temporary homes after being found as a stray, and poor Sandi was confused what was she doing wrong that nobody wanted her? The answer is absolutely nothing!

Sandi has had her very complex surgery to remove a grapefruit-sized hernia (see unusual details of this surgery below), and she is recuperating nicely. She is back to taking long walks with her foster mom, and this is something she really does enjoy.

Due to her moving from home-to-home, it appears that she wasnt properly socialized with other animals, and naturally has a mild distrust of people and their intentions.

UPDATED BIO 11/19/2019: Sandi has now been in her UYR foster home for two weeks. She came to us after being found as a stray, then landing in 3 temporary homes that were not good fits for her through absolutely no fault of her own.

While we don't know many details about Sandi's life prior to rescue, we can say that she came to us needing extensive medical care. She had an absolutely ENORMOUS abdominal hernia, was unaltered and had many teeth which were badly decayed. Sandi's hernia was so bad it looked like she had a grapefruit hanging from her lower groin area. Until her surgery yesterday, we weren't completely sure it wasn't a tumor because the contents felt more solid than most hernias. Sandi's case proved truly unique. When her abdominal cavity was opened, her anatomy was so distorted that her surgery took hours to perform. After much exploring and disentangling its was discovered that Sandi's uterus was actually entrapped in her very large hernia. Sandi's vet stated this was the first time he had ever seen anything quite like it. Her repair was complex to say the least. Sandi also had 10 teeth extracted so this little girl is now recovering from a very

B-I-G surgery.

Sandi is a sweet, beautiful girl with soulful eyes that will melt your heart. Her eyes seem to convey a feeling of sadness, but we are 100% committed to giving this precious girl the fairy tale ending she so richly deserves! Sandi is being attended to by her doting foster mom who is administering her pain meds and monitoring her closely.

Sandi could sure use some support in the form of prayers, shares and donations so that we can continue to help provide for her needs. If Sandi's story has pulled at your heartstrings, please consider making a donation to UYR to go towards her vetting expenses.

UPDATED BIO 11/03/2019: Hi All - Sandi here! My history before June of this year is not know. Here's what I do know - a very nice lady took me in as a stray and I was matted and covered with fleas - yuk! She cleaned me up and gave me a great home until it became apparent that I wanted to be an only dog. I was then given to another couple who didn't know what to do with me except keep me in a crate all day - that was no fun and made me very anxious. Then onto Home #3... the nice lady who took me in discovered that I needed to be an only dog, and now I'm in Home #4 - the best one yet! I have a sweet foster mom who told me that I will stay here while I am getting healthy, and that my next home will be my furever home and that I will never ever have to move again. That will be so nice.

I've only been in foster care for a few days now, but my foster mom says I'm making progress - I think that's a good thing. I am a smart little cookie - I am completely house- trained - BONUS! I do have some anxiety and possessiveness with "my human", but I'm feeling more comfortable now. Foster mom says that because I do not like to share my human with other dogs, that I really need to be the only dog in my furever home. I love to go on long walks several times a day and foster mom thinks this helps my anxiety. I think my perfect home would be one where there is at least one stay-at-home parent, and that they like to go on l-o-n-g walks. I am not sure about children, but maybe if the kids are over 12 years old and calm and well-behaved, I may like that.

I have seen a really nice vet who said it will be a few weeks before I'm ready for surgery. I have a hernia or possible growth that needs to be repaired or removed, and the vet said it's not likely that I've been spayed so that will be done as well. Foster mom says I have stinky breath and I will have a dental, too ..... ALL AT THE SAME TIME! But I'll come out of surgery all fixed up and having a sweet-smelling mouth. I will be looking for a forever home sometime in December, but if you think I will be perfect for your home, please complete and submit an adoption application for me - I think I will be a very popular little girlie. And I'll have a spa day soon and I'm sure I will be even more beautiful than I am now.

PLEASE NOTE: If you have been moved by Sandi's story and would like to help her learn to trust people again, please consider donating whatever you can towards her upcoming surgeries. We need to let this little princess know that she is worth it and that people do care about her and her needs and happiness.

Initial Bio 10/31/19 Meet Sandi our pupsicle treat for Halloween. Sandi has had it rough the last few months. She went from her home, to the streets, to another home, then to another home, and now to her foster home. In the course of less than 6 months she has been in 4 different homes. It is no wonder Sandi is showing some signs of anxiety, since she has no idea where she may end up tomorrow. United Yorkie Rescue will make sure Sandi is given love and care and kindness, while she learns she is not going anywhere until she is ready for her final and forever home.

We know that one of the reasons Sandi went from home to home is that she does not like other dogs. It seems when she loves her person, she wants to be the only pup in their life. Her foster mom knows that, and the one thing she will for sure do for Sandi is to find her a forever home where she will be the only pup in the home.

Sandi has already seen the vet. She got all her vaccinations and heartworm test. She still needs a dental. She has either a hernia or a mass that needs to be removed, at that time she will get her spay if she still needs it. So, she has that pretty big surgery coming up for her. The surgery won't be for a few weeks, until she has settled down and adjusted more to her foster home. If you would like to help Sandi learn to trust people, please consider donating whatever you can towards her surgery. Let her know she is worth it and people do care.

Soon Sandi will have her spa day with a nice bath and a grooming. Check back soon as Sandi settles into her foster home and her foster parents get to know her better. New pictures coming too.


To date we've spent $1487.12 on Sandi's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1208.00 in donations.

Shelly and Sophie

Adorable Shelly
Florida
Shelly (and Sophie)

Shelly and Sophie are an adorable bonded pair of miniature poodles who are sisters. These girls are 6.5 years -old and they are being fostered in Summerfield, FL. They have been together their entire lives and MUST BE ADOPTED TOGETHER.

Initial Bio 2/9/2010

Meet the Pooh-Bears.....we mean the Poo-Bears! (Poo short for poodle). This is the nick-name given to this PAWFECT PAIR of lovable snugglers by their foster Mom who just adores them. They just arrived in time for Valentines Day and are hoping to find a special FUREVER LOVE MATCH.

Sophie and Shelly are just about perfect dogs. They are adorable, smart, healthy, perfectly behaved, perfectly house-trained, up to date on their Vet care and ready to find their FUREVER HOME TOGETHER. These babies are very well known to their foster Mom who has been their pet sitter. They were owned by a very loving, wonderful couple who has owned them since they were puppies and absolutely doted on them. Unexpected life circumstances caused them to have to make the difficult decision to place them in our care knowing we will find them a loving home perfectly suited to their needs.

If you are looking to add a double helping of lap love and kisses to your life look no further because WE HAVE IT! Sophie weighs 10 pounds and is a striking grey with black accents. Shelly is a bit of a chubby girl who also weighs 10 pounds and is white with grey accents. Her New Years resolution is to be in her two-piece bathing suit and skinny jeans by summer and she will be working on that in her foster-home. Shelly also has an early onset cataract in one eye but she sees just fine and gets around great. These two love nothing better than having a lap each to sit in, going for walks, cuddling and just chillaxing with their humans. When its time to go potty, they trot right outside, do their business and come right back. They have such sweet temperaments they will let you hold them on their backs like babies. They are great in the car, on a leash, and around other pets. They love to sleep with their person but theyd also be happy on a puppy bed close by.

Their perfect home would be one with lots of time and love to give them and two laps available for snuggles and belly-rubs but they love each other and are willing to share a lap to the perfect adopter. If you think you are MEANT TO BE Sophies and Shellys happily ever after then don't let these PAWFECT PAIR OF POO-BEARS get away!

Bentley GA

Meet the handsome Mr. Bentley!! This little man is 11 years old, 11 pounds and is being fostered in Hiawasee, GA

THANK YOU TO BENTLEY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Marc Spiegel, Holly Keller

THANK YOU TO BENTLEY'S FACEBOOK DONORS!

Diane Pletcher Marvin, Priscilla Sukroo, Christine Kirchner, Theresa McDivitt, Lucy Hall, Ali Anna, Jill Landers, Bev Craven

Updated bio 2/2/20

Bentley came into rescue and was shortly taken to the vet for evaluation. The vet mentioned that she thought Bentley might have Cushings disease. We proceeded from there to do several expensive and time consuming tests to see if the symptoms that he was exhibiting were actually Cushings. Bentleys Vet actually went so far as to contact the endocrinologist directly to discuss his case. Unfortunately it has been determined that Bentley in fact does have Cushings disease. Cushings is not a curable disease but we have recognized Bentleys case early on and are hoping very much that his will be manageable with medication. He starts his new meds on Monday. Meanwhile he is just a totally charming little man who wants nothing more to be in your lap and follow you everywhere that you go. Because of his terrific consumption of water he does have to wear a belly band at all times. We are hoping that his medication may help to control this. Once we get Bentleys medication levels balanced we are hoping that he can be put up for adoption. If you have any questions regarding Bentley please contact his foster mom at equusjojo@aol.com. Because there is a great deal of cost involved in Bentleys testing, medication, and retesting we would appreciate any donations you could make To help support our precious Bentley.

Francie (Rhue)

Meet Francie a 8 year old, 8 pound Yorkie. She is 1/2 of a bonded pair being fostered in Suwanee,GA

THANK YOU TO FRANCIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta

Updated Bio 11/16/19

Francie and Rhue are looking for a new home. Their mom passed away and there was no one available to keep them together so they came into United Yorkie Rescue in hopes someone will fall in love with this pair and give them a new home. Francie just had her first dental ever in all of her 8 years and she lost 11 teeth. You'd think this might slow her down but she's still hungry and really enjoying her soft food for the next few days while she heals. She wants attention but not so sure she wants to be in a lap yet. She does like to get under your feet while you are sitting and use them to scratch her back. Francie enjoys exploring the backyard with her sister Rheu and will come when called. She must be walked with a harness and not with a lead attached to her collar because it makes her choke. She is a good car rider, is indifferent to kids and cats and appears to be almost completely house trained. Francie prefers to sleep in a corner of your bed but she is also crate trained. She's going to need a good patient home where they are willing to give her the time to feel safe and settle in. Any questions please email foster mom at jennifer@unitedyorkierescue.org

THANK YOU TO RHUE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta

Updated Bio 11/16/19

Rheu is a 10 year old 30 pound Cockapoo. She is bonded with Francie and is being fostered in Suwanee, Georgia.

Rheu and Francie are looking for a new home. Their mom passed away and there was no one available to keep them together so they came into United Yorkie Rescue in hopes someone will fall in love with this pair and give them a new home. Rheu is the youngest 10 year old you're likely to meet. She likes to run and explore though she is not quite sure exactly how to play she knows she wants to. Rheu wants to be where you are. She is a shadow but has an independent side too. She is a pleasant companion and loves belly scratches especially when you get down to her level and get serious about giving her the massage and scratches that she enjoys so much. Rheu is supposed to be a cockapoo but really looks like she's more Cocker than Poodle. She doesn't shed much, is almost completely house trained, comes when called but needs to be taught some leash manners. Rheu loves cats and kids! Rheu likes to sleep with her owner but is crate trained. There's still some harmless puppy mischief in this wonderful old dog.

Meet sweet Molly, an 8 year old, 7 pound Yorkie girl being fostered in Northern IL and must be adopted within a 100 mile radius of her foster home.

THANK YOU TO MOLLY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Natalie Gross

INITIAL BIO. 01/24/20. Molly is a sweet little 8 year old, 7 pound Yorkie who was formerly used for breeding. Those days are over and she is now looking for a loving home to be loved and cared for the rest of her life.

She only came into the rescue on Sunday, the 19th of January, and is awaiting her vet exam for a full evaluation. She is residing in Northern Illinois at the present time. We are working on housebreaking.

Molly is a very loving and affectionate little girl who enjoys being with her human. A home where someone will be with her all day would be preferred. She does get along with small dogs but she has not been around cats. Due to her size and age a home without small children would be best.

Questions can be directed to her foster mommy at yorkiefostermom04@gmail.com

She only came into the rescue on Sunday, the 19th of January, and is awaiting her vet exam for a full evaluation. She is residing in Northern Illinois at the present time. We are working on housebreaking.

Pumpkin is a very loving and affectionate little girl who enjoys belly rubs and being with her human. A home where someone will be with her all day would be preferred. She does get along with small dogs but she has not been around cats that we are aware of. Due to her size and age a home without small children would be best.

Questions can be directed to her foster mommy at yorkiefostermom04@gmail.com


To date we've spent $1548.27 on Pumpkin's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $400.00 in donations.

Bo
Iowa
Bo IA

Meet Bo, a handsome 4 year old, 6 pound Yorkie being fostered in Des Moines, IA. Bo wants a fenced in yard and must be adopted within a 100 mile radius of his foster home.

THANK YOU TO BO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Natalie Gross, Anita Lehman

Update 2-3-20: Bo has received a clean bill of health and has been brought up to date on vaccinations. Additionally, he received a much needed dental.

Unfortunately he lost quite a few teeth, but the good news is his little infected mouth has finally been treated and he gained his appetite back.

This little fellow is finally ready to find his new home. We have learned he would do great as a solo dog, but would also do ok with a small companion dog as along as he receives a large abundance of snuggle time with a human companion.

Bo's new owner must continue working with him on potty training, and practice good dental hygiene to ensure he keeps his remaining teeth.

Initial Bio 1-20-20 Meet adorable 4 year old Bo! Little Bo lived in a home with a small group of breeder dogs, however is now being fostered in Iowa. Fortunately he was released at a young age and allowed a chance at a better forever life.

While Bo gets along well with other small, well behaved dogs, he has a tendency to attach quickly to humans and would do best in a home with a stay at home, work from home, or retired owner. His human would need to include him in dog friendly activities. This sweet pup is not for you if you are away from home frequently and for more than 1-2 hours a day.

He likes to snuggle and loves attention. Bo's foster family is working with him on much needed basic training, including potty training. This is not surprising given his previous circumstance. Bo's future adopter must be willing to continue with basic and potty training. This will take much patience.

Bo will be seeing a veterinarian soon to get up to date on vaccinations and is also due for a much needed dental cleaning; otherwise he appears to be in great health and should be adoption ready in a few weeks.


To date we've spent $429.96 on Bo IA's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $70.00 in donations.

Eleven year old Marley is a sweet yorkie boy who was used as a breeder and came to UYR when his owner passed away. He is being fostered near Bettendorf, IA.

THANK YOU TO MARLEY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sunghee Sohn, Irene and Peter Havas in memory of darling Happy

Update 1/30/20: Marley is a 10-year-old Yorkie that had been used as a breeder and came to UYR when his owner passed away. He doesn't quite know yet what to do with his new found freedom, and is learning to trust people. He is a very good eater and enjoys an occasional treat! Marley is pretty curious and follows his foster mom around, watching everything that goes on around him. He loves nothing more than to lay on your lap in the evening and wind down from the day's adventures. He is learning to trust humans and is working on housetraining - and does just fine in a crate. He just went for a bath and haircut and seems to know that he looks really handsome! The groomer said he did great - even with the nail trim!

Marley will do best either as an only dog, or with one other female dog, and in a home where someone is home most of the time. With a little TLC and patience, Marley is going to make someone a great little buddy!


To date we've spent $1148.25 on Marley IL's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $120.00 in donations.

Ashley Cagle, Patrick Cagle, Angie Cagle, Anne Broadfoot, Terri Horton Moore, Celeste Bichey

UPDATE Bio: 09/11/19. Lily is the tiniest three pound little girl with a really big health issue. Lily has PLE, Protein Losing Enteropathy. She came cross country to United Yorkie Rescue because her foster mom has experience with the disease. Recommended for euthanasia last January, it's been nine months and she's still with us.

Lily requires periodic vet checks and a rather expensive diet and supplement program. Combined, she's avoiding the worst symptoms of the disease that will eventually lead to the end of her life. With careful attention, Lily may live a few years and that's our goal.

Please consider donating to Lily's vet bills. The blood tests tell us how to proceed and keep her comfortable

Initial Bio 2/22/19: Little Lily needs our help now! This tiny little girl is very sick. She has had chronic diarrhea since October, is losing weight, and is starting to lose her hair. She weighs a slight 3 1/2 pounds. Her vets recommended euthanasia but her owner didn't give up. Lily's mom went to work to find a rescue experienced in PLE, Protein Losing Enteropathy, often fatal in Yorkies. Her owner drove Lily halfway across the US to her new home. Putting all personal feelings aside, Lily's owner did the final act of love and asked us to save her precious little girl. Lily just had her first vet appointment. Her vet did confirm PLE. She had tests performed and is on several medications. Her follow-up visit is in two weeks. This visit will determine if Lily is responding to her new regimen. She may never be healed, but we are hoping to manage her disease. How a four pound Yorkie has survived this deterioration to her intestinal tract is a testament to her survival skills. Please donate to save this tiny sweet girl's life. This will be a long process to save her. She is not available for adoption at this time so her vet bills will need donations. We will update her prognosis soon.


To date we've spent $1390.14 on Lily WV's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1125.00 in donations.

UUPDATE BIO: 09/11/19. Merry, the tiny three pound senior found collapsed on the streets of Brooklyn last December, is still with us. After spending months building up her strength, she had three surgeries. She had multiple mammary tumors removed, a spay, and her last teeth removed.

Fifteen years old Merry is doing well but cannot seem to gain weight. She gets a very good diet and it seems to keep her going. Foster mom cooks for her and gives her Manuka honey and golden paste to heal her tiny body. Soon she will return to the vet to see if her tumors came back.

Please consider donating to sweet little Merry. Her surgeries were costly and she needs a recheck.

Update 4/1/19: Sweet tiny 14 year old Merry really needs our help. She had three surgeries today and her bill is over $1100. Little four pound Merry was found in bitter cold December, collapsed on the streets of Brooklyn, starved, unable to walk. Merry came to us still unable to walk. Her strength was slowly built until she could withstand three serious surgeries. She had a mammary tumor, a spay was needed to prevent more tumors, and her last two teeth were causing pain. Finally in April, she was able to get the care she needed after rebuilding her strength. Merry was quite a risk for surgery but there was no choice. The mammary tumor was growing. Merry sailed right through the surgeries and came home looking for her dinner. She has two pain meds and she is going to be watched closely. Please consider donating to help with this bill. Without our donors, Merry could not have been given the care she so desperately needed.

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

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

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


To date we've spent $1670.32 on Merry's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1675.00 in donations.

Meet sweet Riley, a 7 year old, 7 pound sweet Yorkie girl being fostered in Rhode Island. She has a pelvic fracture and won't be available for adoption until she has been cleared after surgery.

THANK YOU TO RILEY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Halaine Steinberg, Sandy Pagnotta, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Laura Bentley, Arlene Swirsky

THANK YOU TO RILEY'S FACEBOOK DONORS!

Mary Fendrich,, Lucy Hall,, Mando Martinez, Alexa Socha Rowan

1/13/20- After a long crate rest, Riley’s fractured bones have healed on their own. The right hind hip is still displaced but is not hindering the ability to walk or run and boy can she run! Riley has the potential for arthritis in those areas and is on Omega and Green Lipped Muscle to minimize the effects of arthritis.

Riley is very protective and will need to be an only dog and preferably an adult only home. Riley is a barker and if she wants your attention she will bark until she gets what she wants. Most of the time she just wants to be near her person; she will follow you all around even when doing housework.

Riley has a checkup and dental appointment in 2 weeks.

11/6/19 On 10/27/19 a call was made to animal control that I was lying in a warehouse and they thought I was hit by a car. I was taken to NYC shelter, I couldn't stand and I was in pain. X-rays were done and I have a shattered pelvis and both hips are fractured. I also had a very large bladder stone. The shelter did surgery to remove the bladder stone and I was spayed at that time also. I'm a hurting little bit but strong and loving. I've been very still and on crate rest. I can stand, and walk. The specialty Vets can't understand how I'm able to stand and walk with such extensive injuries. I'll keep you posted with my progress. The estimates for my surgery are very high and I would appreciate any donations you can make to help!


To date we've spent $316.46 on Riley's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $246.00 in donations.

Bunky

Bunky is a estimated 8 year old Yorkie boy who weighs 9 pounds and is being fostered near Clarksville, TN.

THANK YOU TO BUNKY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Irene and Peter Havas in memory of darling Happy, DeAnn Deutsch, Tom Pazik, Jennifer Bullington, Julie Christy, Irene and Peter Havas in memory of darling Happy

01/09/2019

Bunky is the sweetest boy... We had to go back to the dogtor this week for his ears... they are infected again and he is still very uncomfortable scratching all the time.... the dogtor thinks the ear infections and scratching are from environmental allergies, so we have decided to start him on Apoquel to help with his allergies. He has also had his first breakthrough seizure since starting his medicine. He had one last night around 9:30pm and again this morning around 4:00am. FM has called the doctor to see if we need to make any adjustments to his medications. Bunky loves to be with his person all the time... If you leave him he will sit and wait for you watching the door until your return. FM mom feels Bunky would do best with someone who is able to be home with him the majority of the time... so either a work from home person or retired. He gets along with fur brothers and sisters but his choice is to stay by his person. Bunky is house trained. He will have to be take medication for seizures and allergies for the rest of his life. If you think you would be a good fit for Bunky please submit an application.

12/02/2019

Update on Bunky... He came home on Sunday from Blue Pearl on medication to hopefully prevent his seizures. At this time he has been seizure free for 48 hrs. We are so excited he seems to be feeling better too. Today Bunky went to the dogtor to get all of his yearly vaccines. He was such a good boy. They also removed his stitches that were still in place from when he lost his eye. We have no idea how long those stitches were there but they are gone now thank goodness. He also has a double ear infection and has been given medication to get this cleared up as well. He is doing so good. He does seem to be housetrained, he will go to the door and circle when he wants to go outside. He loves to be held all the time. We are currently working on teaching him that human food or trash are not what he is supposed to eat. Living on the streets of course he ate whatever was available so it will take him some time to understand that he will get regular meals. He will need to have a recheck of his ears in a month to make sure they have cleared up. Foster mom feels that Bunky would do best in a home with no small children and someone who works from home or has lots of time to spend with him. He doesn't like to be left alone. He rides great in the car. If you think you would be a good fit for Bunky please complete an application.

11/30/19

Bunky just arrived while in route to his foster home Bunky suffered 2 seizures. So he is currently at Blue Pearl for evaluation. Bunky is an owner surrender. He has lived a rough life he is missing an eye and we do not know how this occurred. He has also had little to no vet care. He was living on the streets with a homeless person for years. Bunky would wander the streets and the homeless man would lose him and beg people to help find Bunky. Recently a local family reached out to try and assist the homeless man and his dog. After helping the homeless man he decided to ask the family to take his dog so that he would be safe. This family reached out to UYR for assistances. We don't know much about Bunky at this point except that he needs our help. If you can please donate to his care so that we can get him stabilized. Stay tuned for updates


To date we've spent $1409.08 on Bunky's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $406.02 in donations.

Prince Alexander will not be adoptable until he is completely healed. We will not be taking any applications till then.

He has an AA Luxation and has already been seen by two Neurologist before coming into rescue. He also had an MRI. He will need Surgery to repair.

Updated bio: 1/14/2020:

Tasha Love is a yorkie who weighs 5.9 pounds and is approximately 12 years old. She is being fostered near Ashland City, TN.

Update on sweet Tasha. Just a reminder of the condition this sweet baby WAS in when she came into rescue.

She was adopted to a local home from another rescue (which is no longer in business) in 2016. She was in good health at that time. But something went very wrong. After receiving a call from a concerned animal lover Clarksville Humane Society went out to do a welfare check and found Tasha in horrible condition and in need of medical attention. They were able to convince the owner to surrender her in order to save her life. United Yorkie Rescue was contacted to help get her the care she needs Tasha was immediately taken to a local veterinary clinic for medical care. She was covered in fleas...(She had lost all of her hair and had no veterinary care since being adopted. Her teeth were severely infected they were bleeding and puss was coming out at the slightest touch. She was immediately seen by the Dogtor and was quickly put on the right path towards recovery. She has been given many medical baths to help her hair grow back, she is on Science diet doggie food for sensitive stomach and skin. She is also on a special vitamin to help her skin and hair. We have seen miraculous results and what was once peach fuzz is now becoming beautiful hair!! Tasha is blind and deaf. She doesnt bark but will whine when she wants food and attention. She is NOT a cuddly dog but she does enjoy being petted and scratched. Tasha finally had a dental and had to loose ALL her teeth that she had left which wasnt many. The Dogtor found a small red mass under her tongue and went ahead and removed it. It was sent off for a biopsy and two pathologist suspected cancer, however the results came back non cancerous. An oncologist was consulted as they wanted to do a retest because they were so sure it looked cancer and he said as long as she is monitored every three to six months to make sure nothing is growing back there is nothing else that needs to be done at this time. Tasha Loves medical bills have been adding up, but to see this little dog who was in such bad shape become a happy little girl who never has to go hungry, suffer skin infections and suffer a painful mouth again has all been worth it. She enjoys her warm bed, her warm clothes and her yummy food and affection. Please donate to her care at www.uyr.us and if you are interested in adopting or have any questions for foster mom email her at mandy@unitedyorkierescue.org.

Hello Everyone! It's been awhile since I posted an update and I wanted to let everyone know how I have been doing. Things are going good in my foster home. I no longer smell (Thanks goodness) the infection has cleared up. I have gained a little and now FM says I look much better. I still have very little hair but FM says I have peach fuzz and thats a good thing. I would really love to be able to find my furever home. I promise to be no trouble... FM mom says I get around really well considering I am blind and deaf... I even have started to enjoy being petted more... in the beginning when I first arrived it was very scary and a little painful to be picked up so I didn't want any part of that. But things are getting better. I still spend the majority of my day chilling in my bed. If you think you would be the pawfect home for me please fill out an application.

09/18/19

Hey Everybody... Tasha here I wanted to thank everyone for all your prayers. I went back to the dogtor today and he says my staph infection is all better and the yeast is getting better we are going to continue with my current care. My foster mom says I am a spoiled girl but I don't know what she is talking about she says everyone else feeds themself but I like for FM to feed me. Even though I can't see or hear anything I get along pretty good. I am able to let FM know what I need I just whine and she knows that I either want to be held, go to the bathroom or eat (LOL) She says its going to be a long time before my hair grows back so she has been putting lots of different shirts on me to keep me warm. So if you want a princess in your home. Please fill out an application.

09/04/19

Hello Everyone! It's been a busy weekend. I arrived at my new foster home on Friday I have been getting lots of love and lots of baths. Foster Mom says the baths are to help my skin and hope my hair will grow back. FM is keeping Tshirts on me to cover me up so right now. Things are going pretty good mom says a smell a little better everyday not sure if it's the medicated baths or the medicines I'm taking but so glad she thinks the smell is getting better. (Who wants to smell? Not me!) I have a super comfy bed to lay in. I spend the majority of the time chilling in my bed. But I have learned to maneuve thru the house pretty well despite being blind and deaf. I don not let my disabilities hold me back! Keep the prayers coming. If you are interested in adopting me please feel out an application.

Initial Bio 8/28/19

Tasha needs YOUR help!!!! She was adopted to a local home from another rescue (which is no longer in business) in 2016. She was in good health at that time. But something went very wrong. After recieveing a call from a concerned animal lover Clarksville Humane Society went out to do a welfare check and found Tasha in horrible condition and in need of medical attention. They were able to convince the owner to surrender her in order to save her life. United Yorkie Rescue was contacted to help get her the care she needs Tasha was immediately taken to a local veterinary clinic for medical care. She was covered in fleas...(the fleas had fleas). She has lost all of her hair and had no veterinary care since being adopted. At this point we know very little about her condition. Her teeth are severely infected they are bleeding and puss comes out at the slightest touch. The veterinary clinic has done lab work, and given her a medicated bath and treated for fleas. Unable to do much more at this time due to the fact we are in a holding pattern pending lab results in order to devise the best plan of action to help this sweet girl. At a minimum she will need routine vaccinations, a dental in which she will probably lose the majority of her teeth... We are hopeful the fleas are the only reason for hair loss and if this is the case then her hair should grow back once we get her medical needs taken care of and a regular healthy diet. All the techs love her... and believe it or not they say she is very friendly and is eating like a little pig. United Yorkie Rescue is on a mission to help this sweet girl live her best life.

Hey UYR fans Tobias here just wanting to give you a little update on how I have been doing. I have been thru so much and I am slow to trust people. I will let my foster family pet me I also paw at them if they stop petting me and I am not ready to stop getting loves, I will take treats from their hands and get very excited when they come home.. But still am not comfortable being picked up or be bothered while I am resting in my bed. It causes me to panic and then I start to squirm and growl. I have only 1 tooth in the front so thankfully I have never hurt anyone. Once I am put down I am fine again... I enjoy laying around relaxing and sleeping on my bed. I do love treats! I am a very good eater and I don't mind to share with my fur brothers and sisters. I am even nice to strangers when they come to visit I will check them out and let them pet me. They continue to be patient with me as I learn to trust humans again. If you think I might be a good fit in your home please put in an application for me... I do want to find my forever home... Just know I need lots of patience and understanding. As always any donations toward my care to help UYR would be greatly appreciated.

Tobias was in a shelter in CA and his time was up he was set to be euthanized, however UYR stepped in to save this scared little boy. He had is first plane ride with a foster from CA. He was not a fan of the plane ride in the beginning but did settle down some as time went on, he is now in TN staying with his new foster mom who is getting to know him. This little boy is scared therefore he reacts in a snippy manner at times. We are hopeful that once he learns to trust people that he will let his guard down so that he can receive the love he deserves. Please keep Tobias in your prayers. Any donations are appreciated. Tobias is not quite ready to go to his forever home but you can place your applications if you think you might be interested in once we feel he is ready to go to his forever home.

1/19/20 Initial Bio: There is a new guy in town and he is just a doll...meet United Yorkie Rescue Benji. Benji is an absolute adorable 8mth old, 6.8lb little love that came to us with 2 breaks in his femur just last week. It seemed the younger child of his owner injured his femur and his owner could not afford the care so she reached out to us for our assistance. We have fully vetted this baby who now has been neutered, has also had a few baby teeth addressed and a pin was placed where his break was to repair the damage to his femur. Please be patient though. Benji has about 2 months of healing to do before he will be ready to join his furever home. In the meantime, please keep this fiesty little one, and foster mom in your prayers. We need good bone growth and a fast recovery, as there was not much holding him down even with his former cast before his surgery!! Donations towards his medical are deeply appreciated as always and can be made at www.uyr.us. Feel free to address foster mom at yorkiefostertx@gmail.com for any information.

Bentley

Bentley TX

Meet Bentley, a very sweet 17 pound 8 year old boy being fostered in Leander, TX.

THANK YOU TO BENTLEY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Barbara Burgess

Initial Bio 2-1-20 Hi everyone, we would like to introduce Mr. Bentley. Mr. Bentley has had quite an eventful week. His owner dropped him off at a shelter in Irving TX on January 24th because they did not have enough time for him due to their work schedule. Thankfully the shelter notified UYR about him and several local members jumped into action and worked together to get him out of that shelter and into a safe and loving foster home. According to the shelters intake paperwork, Mr. Bentley is eight years old and had been with the owner for 8 years. The owner says that he was hit by a car in 2017 and his pelvic and ilium bones were fractured. X-rays confirm this, however you would never know it by looking at him as he gets around very well and even likes to play fetch the squeaky toy with his foster Mom & Dad. Mr. Bentley weighed in at 17.8 lbs, and is scheduled for a long past due neutering on Tuesday February 4th. He also has a few large cysts that will need to be removed from his back at the same time. Mr. Bentley is a handsome, loving boy who loves belly rubs , snuggling on the couch and walks. Mr. Bentley will need a little help in the house training / marking department however being neutered and in a stable loving forever home will help a lot. Until then, he does not mind sporting cool belly bands. If you think you may have room in your heart and home for Mr. Bentley, contact foster Dad & Mom uyryorkielovetx@yahoo.com to schedule a meet & greet

BIO UPDATE: 12/17/19. Almost 1yr ago, Feb to be exact, I rescued sweet United Yorkie Rescue Bunny from a puppy mill. Her journey has been long, and somewhat sad. After her vetting back then, biopsies of mammary tumors and a lymph node came back with metastatic cancer. We've been treating that with great results. Lately in preparation for adoption, we've been doing some tests and sadly at her checkup it was determined that Bunny has Cushings. Not only that, she has a sludgy gallbladder and her right kidney has shriveled up and is most certain it is not working.

How do I smile through all of this for her... by seeing what I saw this week. "My Abby", my Maltese is so wonderful with my rescue's, she teaches them so much. Abby picks out toys everyday and brings them and plays in front of Bunny daily. And this week Bunny grabbed her first toy and squeaked and tossed it and shook it. 12 yrs in a crate and she finally played with a toy!! Not only that, she finally learned what play was and has been loving playing with Abby, running through the house, rolling on their bed playing with Forever Ours Jasper... being a puppy after 12yrs, with cancer and all this other crap now, but living and loving her lil life!!

We will determine whether Bunny will be adopted or what's in the best interest of this angel who escaped hell. Whatever the future is, I thank God for allowing her to show me what love is. Please, know we have spent thousands of dollars on this lil princess and if your in a Christmas giving mode, please give to her care. Bunny at www.uyr.us, go to Looking for Love, scroll to Texas and to Bunny and click ther donate Button. Thank you, bless you and Merry Christmas!!

BIO UPDATE: 09/08/19. Bunny's last oncology appointment was absolutely amazing! Dr Jesse did a thorough followup visit on Bunny with xray's, blood work, ultrasound and some fine needle aspirations on a few areas of concern. I am happy to say that EVERYTHING, and I mean EVERYTHING, is just perfect with this baby girl. Her lymph node is normal size, her xrays are just remarkable, her blood work is in on point, her ultrasound showed no areas of concern and she looks amazing on the outside a well.

Bunny has been on a very inexpensive chemo pill that she takes daily. She has had absolutely zero side effects on this medication and it looks as if we are seeing such amazing results...thank you God!! Bunny came to us from such a house of horror and endured such a horrific life but to look at her now, you would never imagine her life has such a horrid past.

This sweet baby is just so full of love and and such a joy to the household. She loves to play with her fur siblings and LOVES belly rubs. She is beautiful in her golden coat with red tinted highlights. A far cry from the baby that had hardly any fur with sores and scaly skin. Her anatomy is all back into place and no longer a tangled mess of "what is that"? When you add LOVE, it is amazing what you see as the result.

Being a former mill baby, Bunny has the most incredible love to give as well. She thrives on a touch which she has found to be a feeling she cannot do without for too terribly long of a time, that and a soft cozy bed!! But of course at nighttime, its that big cozy bed that holds everyone she craves. Although this sweet angel has cancer because of her abuse and neglect from mammary tumors, Bunny is still highly adoptable. Although she has been given a name for something that MAY take her life, she still has so much life to live and give.

IF you are the PERFECT home for Bunny, please contact me at yorkiefostertx@gmail.com. You simply MUST be able to continue to add love, and make sure her life is full of sunshine, belly rubs and touch. Please, complete your application at www.uyr.us if you are that special one...you will be blessed more than you could ever bless her.

Update 7/1/19: United Yorkie Rescue Bunny has an oncology follow up appointment tomorrow! She is maybe 6 to 8yrs old, rescued from the puppy mill we shut down in Texas. She was one of the original Fortunate Four rescued. Bunny has metastatic cancer. We removed her mammary tumors, but sadly they were diagnosed as carcinoma and cancer has spread to her lymph nodes. She is just the most loving princess ever and we are trying to give her some time, which she sooo deserves! Please help us by donating to her care at www.uyr.us or you may also click the button attached. If you aren't able to donate at this time, please share as you never know who may be in a place to do so. Bless you and please keep sweet Bunny in your pray

Update 4/5/19: Bunny was seen by the oncologist and she says she looks amazing. Overall her x-rays look really good as far as she is concerned. She does have a very large heart, she's on Vetmedin for that and at present there is no need to add anything more. Her trachea looks a little more relaxed and does not have such a roller coaster look to it as well. Her bloodwork looks very good. Her lymph node is considerably smaller. Hard to say if this chemo med is the reason why, but she's doing very well. No need for recheck until another 3 months. Despite all that is wrong with her, she's just so incredibly sweet.

BIO UPDATE. 03/01/19. Sweet baby Bunny, when you were a mill baby, wasn't the hell hole you lived in enough! Wasn't it enough that you were bred so damn much that you can't even tell your behind from your vagina, and your tail that lies inside this folded over sheath of skin to make matters worse. No it wasn't enough.

You, my sweet angel, had to have ear infections, bacterial skin infections, fungal looking long painful nails, tooth decay and missing your lower jaw due to decay. Let's add the icing to this cake baby. Your breeder didn't take care of you and all of those mammary tumors either. We did though. United Yorkie Rescue stepped in and we took 2 weeks to try to get weight on your emaciated body and heal some of your issues. We took away those tumors, and that baby maker.

But my sweet angel, sadly your breeder gave you something I can't fix...sadly we received the news today from Bunny's oncologist that she has metastatic cancer. But Bunny do you know how fortunate you truly are? You are in my home now. Your life of pain and misery will be a faded memory. You will have soft beds and blankets every day. I have enough love to take you on this journey, and you have a family outside of our walls that already love you as well.

I ask everyone to please keep Bunny in your prayers for these next few months. Please continue to help us with her medical needs. Please donate to her care at www.uyr.us. Thank you and Bless you!

Update 2/23/19: This morning I sat in the vet's office with Dr. Jessie and just cried. You know you can only be strong to a point, and today was just the tip of that point. Bunny, one of the Fortunate Four mill rescue babies, finally had her appointment with an oncologist because during her first vet visit after rescue, the vet discovered not only did she have a very bad heart murmur, but chest x-rays showed her trachea to have this roller coaster look to it. Did any of this matter... not really... because her exam zeroed in on a swollen lymph node in her groin. She took Bunny to the back, aspirated the node, looked at the slide and saw cells that shouldn't be there but officially, we wait until Monday for the pathologist to give us the report. Bunny's doctor at that point told me what time we maybe looking at, and the tears just started to flow in my eyes and in hers as well. She listened to me telling her how this precious baby deserved so much more time of the good than the hell she lived in, and how much pain we see them go through after the rescue because we have to fix all the horrible things that their abusers neglected to care for. I will guarantee you she will be a princess for whatever time God has planned for her and I will make sure this mill is put to rest for her. In the meantime, Bunny needs your prayers! We also ask you to please help us share her story, and please, please donate so we can medically support Bunny and the Fortunate Four mill rescue's.

Thank you UYR family!!!

UPDATE 02/22/19. Bunny is home!! As you may remember, her presurgical exam once again alerted to a 5 out of 6 heart murmur, so x-rays were once again performed to look at the chest. Sadly, they feel what they are seeing is real and Bunny has been referred to oncology for answers regarding her chest. We have an appointment with the Oncologist on Saturday the 23rd, where we will be doing additional testing so we can get answers as to what is lying under her sternum and in those lymph nodes. I am also heavy feeding Bunny, even more so than before, to try to turn her weight loss around. I know her sur sibling in the mill rescue, Cash, did not have any weight gain as well, although Bunny had a 2lb loss! I am praying that these babies were just so stressed, and their bodies just need time to turn this around.

We also have started Bunny on specialty compounded eye drops for her dry eye, and instead of looking at gooey flat dull eyes there is a sparkly shine that was so absent!! She did get her spay, which also included an excise of an almond shaped mass attached to her uterus, another lipoma like mass on her left side as well, and 9 mammary tumors as well. Biopsies have been sent out with results due in possibly today. Please In the meantime, please continue to support these babies as these specialty Drs come with specialty tests which we need for answers regarding Bunny.

Update 2/9/19: We now have a current picture of Bunny who is another one of the Fortunate Four that was recently rescued from the puppy mill last week. Bunny is currently receiving medicated baths due to flea and tick infestation. She has major hair loss all over her body however, her vets feel this is due to the infestation her body endured. Bunny is EXTREMELY emaciated and cannot undergo surgery for her needs so let me tell you where we are in her treatment. Bunny had severe bilateral ear infections in which we treated her this past week with an antibiotic. She also had a vicious eye infection in both eyes. She has received antibiotics for that as well, and now we are treating her eyes with a lubricating gel to protect her vision and her tear production. Bunny is horribly disfigured in her genital area from being nothing more than a breeding machine. It is very hard to differentiate her anatomy and even her tail, as it is engulfed in a sheath of thickening skin. She has a ravenous appetite and we are hoping that she will have some weight gain that will add to her stability during her upcoming surgery. Bunny also has a 5 out of 6 heart murmur. As stated before, her lymph nodes that lie under her sternum are so enlarged with all of this infection that we have started her on vetmedin to protect her heart as her body heals. Along with all of this, Bunny has lost some of her lower jaw due to horrific detal decay and we will have to see after her dental if there are any teeth we can save. She will need a spay. We also know, she has many mammary tumors as well so we are expecting to have biopsies and possible entire chain removal depending of the status of these tumors. Please continue to support us with these horrifically abused angels.

Update 2/5/19: This is precious Bunny, the second of the Fortunate Four puppy mill dogs just taken in. Bunny has very unusual anatomy near her rectum and vagina which is a result of prolonged over-breeding. She has multiple mammary tumors on both sides and evidence of recent and frequent nursing. Bunny has almost no lower jaw bone and no lower teeth at all. Her uppers are barely hanging on from years of dental neglect. She has severe bacterial skin infection and bilateral ear infections and is extremely thin bordering on emaciation. Bunny was going to have surgery tomorrow for her mammary tumors but she has been diagnosed with a pretty bad heart murmur; grade 5 of 6. X-rays revealed that the lymph nodes under her sternum are so enlarged from years of chronic infection that they are pressing on her sternum and trachea which can compromise her airway so anesthesia is not advised until her infection is under control. She has been started on antibiotics and medication to treat heart failure and her surgery is postponed until she is more stable.

Meet the Magnificent Chocolate, aka Gizmo! A 15 year old, 7.8 pound Yorkie boy who is part of a truly Dynamic Duo! He is being fostered alongside his brother, S'Mores aka Ziggy, in Pflugerville, TX. He & his brother are going through medical treatment with some surgeries in the wings. Please consider donating towards their care as they would appreciate it :)

THANK YOU TO CHOCOLATE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Lynne Turner, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Lynne Turner, Donna Williams, JC Pham

Update 01/21/2020: Chocolate had three surgeries on 01/07/20 and did fantastic! He had a cystotomy, with a lot of bladder stones completely removed, two cysts removed from his left eye (non-cancerous) and a full dental cleaning with only one tooth extracted. Once we have the results back on the type of bladder stones they were, we will have a better idea of his diet going forward.

Chocolate's vet could not believe how amazing he did! He is making a full recovery now and will be available for adoption very soon! Stay tuned for this and updated photos!

Initial Bio 11-27-19: Chocolate joined UYR on Nov. 27 (Thanksgiving Eve), alongside his brother of 15 years, Ziggy. He began life in a loving home with his brother & spent many years there. Sadly, his owner became ill and unable to care for them both & then passed away. Both boys found themselves on hard times, neglected and ended up in a shelter. Those kind souls lent them a hand & got them into the loving arms of UYR so they could get back on their feet.

These days, Chocolate's eyesight isn't what it used to be, but he still loves to outside & has been eager to slowly check out his foster home. His hearing & smell is absolutely on point! He is currently working on getting his weight up after some lean times & just needs some love and a warm lap to curl up on. He is such a sweet boy and loves to just chill next to you.

Chocolate is currently dealing with some bladder stones right now that will soon be resolved with his new diet. Additionally, he is on soft food until his upcoming dental surgery & will need to stay on wet food going forward. Chocolate says he absolutely does not mind!

Chocolate currently has two small tumors on his upper and lower eyelids on his left eye due to neglect. These will shortly be addressed with surgery once he gets his weight up. Oh, and he is a polite boy. He is superbly potty trained and will only go outside. Even with all that he has gone through, not one accident!

Please stay tuned for more updates to come as this Dynamic Duo get back on track for their furever home!

Jasmine

Meet sweet little Jasmine who is 10 years old and weighs 4 lbs. This precious little girl is being fostered in TX.

THANK YOU TO JASMINE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Robert Davis, Lauren Radencic, Judith Gobeille, Karen Keaton, Dana Barao, Sue Ott, Wendy Henry, Cheryl Scrupski, Lauren Satterfield, Julie Christy

PUPDATE 01/08/2020 In the 2 weeks since her surrender Jasmine has been for her health check. Concern was raised over her distended tummy and a uterus infection was suspected. She was scheduled for surgery within couple of days. However she could not wait that long and that very evening she fell gravely ill and we had a 1am rush to the emergency ER for pyometra. 10 days later and she is bright and active with a great appetite. She still faces at least one more surgery to remove a lot of mammary tumors as well as a dental. It will probably be another 2 - 3 weeks before the Dogtor will consider doing this work and then she will need a few more weeks of recovery after that before she will be ready for her forever home. As you can image her medical bills are mounting up so if you could find it in your heart to make a donation toward her care she would be oh so grateful for your love and care.

As mentioned in her initial bio she was surrendered with Max with whom she had shared a home for 10 years. In observing them it is clear that they are very close and would prefer for them to be adopted together.

INITIAL BIO: 12/15/19. Jasmine has been with her foster parents for two days now, She is a tiny sweet 4lb bundle who looks at you with those big ol' eyes, she certainly does not look 10 years old!

She was very good during the car ride to her new foster home and has not refused any food so far! She walks very well on a leash and sleeps thru the night without any trouble. She is house-trained and happily goes outside to do her business. She is a very cuddly little maid, climbing onto any lap that happens to be there.

She and her brother Max came from a loving home, but the recent arrival a new baby made them very unsettled and the baby's mother could not cope with them and a baby.

She is scheduled to go the the Dogtor on Saturday to check out her health and see if there are any issues to be addressed before she is ready for her furever home.

Adoption Pending

To date we've spent $3609.92 on Jasmine's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1128.00 in donations.

Max
Texas
Max

Meet sweet Max, a estimated 10-11-year-old who weighs 8-9 lbs. This precious little guy is being fostered in TX.

THANK YOU TO MAX'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Robert Davis, Julie Christy

PUPDATE 01/08/2020 Max continues to recover from his surgery and is due to go for a check up in a couple of days. As mentioned in his initial bio he was surrendered with Jasmine with whom he had shared a home for 10 years. In observing them it is clear that they are very close and would prefer for them to be adopted together.

PUPDATE 01/04/2020. Max has been with his foster parents for nearly 12 days and has really shown himself to be a beautifully natured dog. He is very affectionate and loves company. He went for his medical on December 28th and was found to be in great condition, though needing to be neutered, a dental and chipped. He had this done on Monday 30th so started the New Year right. He only had 4 teeth left and sadly they had to remove these, but he has not found any problem in eating both kibble and canned food.

Although he is blind in one eye, he gets around just fine and the Dogtor told us the blind eye is just small and is causing him no issues at all. Once he has had his stitches removed he will go for a 'spa day' and looking for his furever home. We think he would do better in a home preferably with adults where he we will not be left for long periods of time. So if you can find it in your heart to give this sweet fella a home please click the link below and complete an adoption application for him - you won't be sorry!

INITIAL BIO: 12/25/19. Max has been with his foster parents for two days now, He has a very sweet disposition, and likes to cuddle up as close as he can. He is estimated to be around 10 - 11 years old and weighs in around 8 - 9LBs. It appears he only has sight in one eye and his former owners told us he was deaf, however he has no trouble hearing when it is meal times!

He was very good during the car ride to his new foster home and has not refused any food so far! He walks very well on a leash and gets very excited when he sees the harness and leash come out of the drawer. He is house-trained and happily goes outside to do his business, although he has indulged in a little marking, probably due to it being a new home and he has not yet been fixed.

He and his sister Jasmine came from a loving home, but the recent arrival a new baby made them very unsettled and the baby's mother could not cope with them and a baby.

He is scheduled to go the the Dogtor on Saturday to check out his health and see if there are any issues to be addressed before he is ready for his furever home.

Molly Noelle

Molly Noelle

Molly Noelle is a sweet 8 year old, 6 pound Yorkie currently being treated at a vet clinic in Anaheim, CA before we transport her to Texas. She has apparently swallowed a rock the size of a lemon which is now lodged in her intestine. Surgery is needed to remove this before she has a bowel blockage.

UPDATE 1/7/20: I brought precious Molly Noelle home today!! When they brought her to me she was so excited which of course melted my heart. This sweet baby girl has so many stitches up and down her leg from the tumor removals. Her tummy shows stitches recently removed from her emergency surgery back on Dec 16th as well. Finally, at least the tumors are finally gone and now we pray! Molly is so incredibly thin. I have a recipe to fix which I'll prepare tomorrow that's good for weight gain. In the meantime, after trying 4 different canned options, this baby girl went nuts over special kibble with some chicken. Molly will have to eat a low protein diet as her BUN is still high and her bloodwork is all over the place due to her malnutrition, but I'm praying with the right mixture of love and food, we can get her back to having some fat and muscle on her little skeleton of a body. Biopsies will be in by Friday. I'll continue to keep you posted and share as we move to our next phase to prepare for the next surgery. Please keep Molly in your prayers and of course if possible, donate to her care! Bless you and thank you!

UPDATE 1/6/20: Molly had her mammary tumor removed and the large tumor on her leg. Her vet found 2 additional tumors on that same leg and removed those as well. The vet was not able to complete her dental, but he was able to see that the former ER in California had pulled the teeth that needed immediate care. He said with her emaciation it would have been too dangerous to attempt a look see to confirm her spay (another issue) we need to address. I was going to pick up Mollie at 3 or 4 today, however, I received a call that she was having trouble clotting so he suggested she stay another night and I pick her up in the am. Biopsies will be sent to A&M and we hope to have results by end of week! This baby girl needs so much nourishment to get her back to health before we even consider additional surgery to address her spay or not and for her gallbladder which is a must. Time to heal her with love and groceries then move forward. Keep the prayers and donations coming in!! Thank you!

UPDATE BIO: 12/27/19: Molly Noelle is doing so much better and we atte ready to transport her to Texas. Please know, this sweet angel needs so many prayers and we will need your help once she arrives. Her major issues will be addressed here. We will see the vet and decide on the plan for her mass on her leg and her gallbladder. Ill continue to share her story as she starts her next journey! Again, bless you all and look for new pictures below!!

BIO UPDATE: 12/23/19. Precious Molly had a good today. It's been a struggle to get her to eat but she's finally eating small amounts of homemade food! She is also getting strong enough and starting to walk a little too! Small steps, big blessings. Her blessing and ours is that she will spend a Christmas with love. The new year will be full of fixes for this baby girl, so please remember sweet Molly Noelle in your prayers.

Please remember to help United Yorkie Rescue with your donations to www.uyr.us. Because of you, you make this all possible. Merry Christmas!

BIO UPDATE: 12/20/19. Little 6lb, 8yr old Molly Noelle had her 3 1/2 hr surgery late last night. The surgeons stayed a couple of hours even after to be certain her body was nice and warm. When they were putting in her breathing tube, a tooth fell into their hand so while prepping her they took another 4 teeth that literally just fell out!. They were successful in retrieving this lemon sized rock that had smooth soft edges without it endangering her life...thank God! Looking to see that all was ok before closing her up, they were immediately drawn to her gallbladder. It was so large and extremely hard and also had strings attaching to nearby tissues and the liver...so our treatment with this baby girl will need to continue once we get her over this ordeal and safely into her fosters arms.

As of this morning she is doing fair. She is still very tired and is just slow to coming around. This is where my heart just cries to hold her and want her in loving arms to help the healing begin. However, I know she's getting the best care and her life will be full of the most amazing love. Its hard to process that it had been 3 years since her chipped owners had her, and they refused her back...was she alone all this time :( . Please continue to share and please let the Christmas Spirit touch her heart and donate to her care. We have such a long way to go and this original vetting of $3k plus will just grow. Donations can be done at www.uyr.us or through the Go Fund Me. Bless you all again and Merry Christmas. A new picture is coming very soon!!

12/18/19 UNITED YORKIE RESCUE Christmas angels, we need your help! This precious 6lb, 8yr old baby girl was found abandoned in California approximately a month ago. Her finder did everything to reunite her with her chipped owner however, the owner stated she gave her away years ago and wanted no part. Her loving finder knew she desperately needed medical by the looks of her horrific bleeding mouth full of dental disease, and made the choice to get her the best and reached out to us.

Molly Noelle came into rescue and was immediately taken to University Veterinary Center for her urgent care. To determine all that was wrong with this baby we opted for x-rays as well as blood work, etc. The horror comes when looking at her x-rays. Imbedded inside Molly's intestine is a rock, a rock the size of a very large lemon! The vets are in awe as to how this could even get inside and down this precious baby's throat. What we have is a medical emergency for this sweet angel, as she is at risk for an ischemic bowel...we don't know how much blood is flowing to her intestines. We are looking at a very expensive procedure of at least $2700 plus which does not include extended hospital stay or even addressing her painful dental issues. Please, we need your Christmas giving spirit to help us with this United Yorkie Rescue itty bitty. Please click the donate button below in this bio. If you are not able to donate, please share. Shares can generate funds for this baby as well. Molly Noelle deserves the gift of life for her Christmas...thank you always for loving our babies and Merry Christmas!!

8/7/19: Hi everyone, Pepper here! I'm am doing so good in my foster home. My eye that we thought we might have to take out has been healing great after some surgery by Dr. Sam! It's 85% healed. My diabetes is under control and I'm looking great. I'm scheduled to have a dental this week. Not really excited about that but... excited to have a sparkling mouth. My foster mom says I'm such a good girl. I love to go outside and do my business and just walk around in the sun. I get along with all my foster sisters and brother. Life is good now just can't wait to find my forever home.

07/12/19 INITIAL BIO. Hey everyone! My name is Pepper. I am a 12 year old female Yorkie with grey and silver Fur. I weigh about 8.8 lbs and just recently found out I am diabetic. I came to UYR after being taken to the shelter to be put down by my mom of 12 years. This was heartbreaking, thankfully someone at the shelter contacted UYR and said I had so much life still in me. They saved me!

Now I am in my new foster home with my foster family, getting use to my new life and changes with my diet and blood sugar. I wasn't feeling good and my foster mom took me to get checked. That is where it all started. I was in the emergency vet for 4 days. Thankfully I am a brand new puppy- feeling great and playing with my new foster siblings.

I get along great with older dogs and kids. My foster mom says I am the sweetest thing around. I have to get insulin shots every 12 hours which don't really bother me at all and eye drops for an ulcer that's healing. The part that is a bummer is I can't have a treat! Man....that's a big bummer. I would love to find my forever home with a family that will love me and give me snuggles for the rest of my life.

7/4/19 Pepper is our latest rescue in Texas...watch for her bio soon. She is very ill and is requiring emergency care.

BIO UPDATE. 12/04/19. Hello UYR fan club! I have some interesting news that may surprise some of my loyal fans. Foster mom and dad picked up some medicine for me on Monday evening for my heartworm treatment and when they got home and looked at the pills, both agreed that it seemed like a large dose for such a small pup. So foster dad did some research to what the recommended dose per pound is and found out that the prescription was too much for my reported 3.1lb weight. This raised a big question, so dad decided to weigh me at home. To his surprise I weighed in right at 7 pounds! Now he knew that I had not doubled in size in the short time I've been with foster mom and dad (even though they feed me some super delicious food). So they immediately called their team lead (the boss, hehe) to ask if they could get a copy of the vet records. And what they found out caused quite some embarrassment. It seems I was originally weighed in kg and not pounds. I guess since they figured I was from England they would use the metric system. Like I would know the difference, I'm just a dog.So mystery solved, I am 7 pounds. Foster mom and dad want to apologize to anyone who has submitted an application solely because I was so small. But hey, I live here with two other fosters that are 10 pounds and 14 pounds. I can see how mom and dad would think I was only 3 pounds surrounded by such larger siblings. LOL

BIO UPDATE. 11/16/19. Hello UYR Community. Ruby here again to give you a little snip-it on my life here with my foster mom and dad.I had a big week and am now recovering from a little time at the dogtor.I went in on Tuesday to get spayed and have my teeth cleaned. I think someone needs to better explain what teeth cleaning means because I thought the dogtor would just brush my teeth extra good and just give me some mouth wash. Boy, was I wrong!He did get all the tarter off my teeth, but he kept a few of them as souvenirs! I guess I shouldn't complain too much because I sure can whistle now! But I still in a little pain, and only eating soft food, which I do like. My spay also went very well, and now I have a scar on my belly that foster dad says just makes me look tough. Not sure if that was the look I was going for, but he sure seems to like it.

Before surgery, the dogtor was worried about my cough being an indication of heart failure due to these darn heartworms, but he did an xray of my chest to be sure there were no issues before putting me under. All turned out wonderfully. So the good news is that I appear to be moving through the heartworm treatment very well. I am scheduled to get my first injection treatment the first week of December. It is scary because I am told it is painful and will make me feel bad for some time.

Well, hopefully foster dad is right about my scar, and it does toughen me up for the next stage of heartworm treatment. I won't be available for adoption until my heartworm treatment is complete. So, just stay posted for updates on my progress!

Update 10/27/19: Hello everyone! I just wanted to get on here and let everyone know how special you've made me feel. I have had a lot of folks contact my foster mom and dad concerned about my condition. A few have filled out applications to adopt me and some even made donations! The UYR community sure knows how to make a girl feel special.

I have been with foster mom and dad for a month now and really getting comfortable with the routine around here. The food is great, the love endless, the daily visits from the dog walker much appreciated, and hanging out with my foster mates really keeps me from getting lonely while mom and dad are at work. I am in my second month of the heartworm treatment and still battling this cough. I have an appointment tomorrow with the dogtor to address this again and for a quick follow up on my treatment. I still have several more months to go before I am ready to be adopted, but I am looking forward to the day where I get a special home to show me the love and attention I deserve. I do have to tell you potential adopters a little secret. Foster mom and dad introduced my to this thing they call a bully bone. Not sure what it is exactly, but I do know that I absolutely LOVE them. So much so, that I try to take them from my foster mates and carry as many as I can in my mouth around the house to be sure I get them all. Foster mom and dad don't like this much, so they try to take them away from me; which I really don't like. I guess it's for my own good, but if I had it my way, I would eat these all day long.

So my ideal home will be one that has an endless supply of bully bones and someone with me most of the day to make sure I don't over do it with them. I do get along with the other pups in the house, but I would be fine as the only one receiving all the attention. Due to my small size, I can't be in a home with children under the age of 12. If you think you are the one for me, please fill out an application using the link at the bottom, or contact foster mom and dad directly at the email listed below. Please give them a little time to respond, as they both work and keep pretty busy with me and my three other pups in the house.

INITIAL BIO: 09/29/19. Hello UYR fans! My name is Ruby, and I come to the United Yorkie Rescue a very sick baby. I was surrendered by a loving home that recently purchased me and quickly realized after a trip to the dogtor that my treatment was going to be very intensive and costly. They decided the best hope for the care I need was to allow the UYR to take control and get me healthy.

I am heartworm positive, in desperate need of a dental, spay, microchip, and have a chronic cough. All this, and I am only 3 years old! Foster mom and dad got me to the vet quickly to begin a treatment plan.Due to my only 3.1lb. size, the treatment will be long and invasive. The cough could be a symptom of my heartworm, as the cough medication has not been overly helpful. The heartworm treatment will be at a minimum five months, according to the dogtor. I could not be scheduled for my dental or spay because I am in heat, too. Talk about being dealt a losing hand!

Even though I have all these health issues, foster mom and dad say I am the sweetest pup they have come across so far. I love to snuggle next to one of them and occasionally like to roll over for a belly rub. But know that if you stop too soon, I will reach up with my paw and push your hand back toward my belly. Just feels so darn good. I am a good eater, great with the other dogs in the house, friendly to people, and best of all house trained! I don't bark, unless the house chihuahua gets all of us started. But who could resist to join the celebration? At least that's what I think it is. I also love to lay with my back to foster mom or dad at night in the warm and cozy bed and sleep through the night. I will be looking forward to meeting some new folks once I have completed my treatment and am perfectly healthy.

Stay tuned for more updates as my treatment continues.

Texas
SMores aka Ziggy

Meet the Extraordinary Ziggy! A 15 year old, 5 pound Yorkie boy who is the second part of a truly Dynamic Duo! He is being fostered alongside his brother, Gizmo, in Pflugerville, TX. He & his brother are going through medical treatment with some surgeries in the wings. Please consider donating towards their care as they would appreciate it :)

THANK YOU TO ZIGGY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Lynne Turner, Karry Rogers, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Lynne Turner, JC Pham

Initial Bio 11-27-19:

Ziggy joined UYR on Nov. 27 (Thanksgiving Eve), alongside his brother of 15 years, Gizmo. S'Mores started his life in a loving home with his brother & spent many years there. Sadly, his owner became ill and unable to care for them both & then passed away. Both boys found themselves on hard times, neglected and ended up in a shelter. Those kind souls lent them a hand & got them into the loving arms of UYR so they could get back on their feet.

Over the years, S'Mores has developed cataracts, but that didn't stop him as his nose & hearing are as sharp as ever! He is also currently working on getting his weight up after some lean times & just needs some love and a warm lap to curl up on. He is dealing with some bladder stones right now that will soon be resolved with his new diet. Additionally, Ziggy is on soft food until his upcoming dental surgery, but has a ravenous appetite... for Food & Life! He will need to stay on wet food going forward as well, but who doesn't love that? He does :)

S'Mores has an incredible spirit & a zest for life! Such a curious fellow, too! He enjoys walking through the yard, with the sun on his face & snuggling under his blankets. He is not shy once you get to know him & never lets his vision get in the way as he loves exploring his new foster home. Oh, and he is a polite boy. He is superbly potty trained and will only go outside. Even with all that he has gone through, not one accident!

Please stay tuned for more updates to come as this Dynamic Duo get back on track for their furever home!

Teddy

Teddy (Bubba)

Meet Teddy, a sweet 10 year old, 6 pound little Yorkie boy being fostered in Leander, TX.

Initial Bio 2/2/20: Hi everyone, I would like to take a moment to introduce myself, my name is Teddy and Im about ten years old. Unfortunately, my loving owner was no longer able to take care of me due to serious ongoing health problems over the past four years. So they surrendered me to the United Yorkie Rescue in hopes of me finding a great new forever home. Foster Mom & Dad picked me up yesterday so we are still getting to know each other. All of this change is a little scary for me and I know it will take time for me to adjust, but as long as I have a soft place to snuggle and relax and lots of soft food Im a pretty happy guy. I had a trip to the emergency vet last night due to some pain caused by my terribly decaying teeth. The vet gave us some medication that is helping me feel better until I can get into see the regular vet first thing on Monday morning. My foster Mom and Dad are worried about me because Im a little underweight, but I love the soft food they are feeding me here as I did not do very well with hard food because of my teeth, but hopefully we will get those fixed soon. I will also need to be neutered once the vet says Im healthy enough. The future is looking bright for me. We will update everyone after my Monday appointment. If you would like more info or would like to meet , contact my foster parents at uyryorkielovetx@yahoo..com.

Nicki

Nicki WI

Eleven year old Nikki spent her life as a breeder dog and came to UYR when her owner passed away. She is being fostered in Oak Creek, WI.

THANK YOU TO NICKI'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Valerie Chavis

Update 2/8/20: Today Nicki was transferred to her new foster home in Wisconsin and she is doing very well...eating nicely, doing her business (mostly outside) and lounging on the sofa with her foster mom. Nicki is still very shy and will need time to work on her housetraining skills and socialization before she is ready for adoption. But we can say she is a very sweet little girl who we hope can find her perfect forever home with someone who is patient and loving.

Update 1/30/20: Nicki is an 11-year-old Yorkie that was being used as a breeder, and came to UYR when her owner passed away. Right now she is most comfortable in her crate or laying on a blanket on the couch. Nicki is is very timid and submissive. She is still trying to figure out what this new found freedom is all about. There are several dogs in her current foster home and she seems to tolerate them just fine.

Nicki is a good little eater, but she prefers to take her meals in her crate with the door shut. She is working on housebreaking and venturing out of her comfort zone - which is her crate and the couch at the moment. Nicki doesn't mind being petted, but doesn't quite know what to make of it just yet. She did go for a bath and haircut and was quite the hit with the groomer!

Nicki will do best in a quiet home with someone who is home most of the time. She has a very sweet demeanor and with a lot of TLC, patience and encouragement she will blossom into a fantastic little companion for someone.

Whiskers

Meet Whiskers, a precious 11 year old, 5 pound Yorkie boy being fostered near Madison, WI. He must be adopted within a 100 mile radius of his foster home.

THANK YOU TO WHISKERS' RESCUE ANGELS!

Update 2/3/20: So Whiskers has had a busy couple weeks. He has been diligently working on house training and is doing really well. I do watch him when he is up and about and when he needs to go potty he starts to pace by the door that we use to go outside so that is a huge improvement; he just doesnt know how to tell me yet that he needs to go out through the door I am very pleased with his progress.

This past weekend Whiskers went on an outing to my daughter's house 2 1/2 hours away and I must say he is a fabulous car rider. While he would prefer to sit in your lap he did do well in the back seat in his little bed with my two Yorkies. Whiskers proved to be quite the gracious guest as he minded his manners and quickly became friends with my daughter's two dogs. At one point 5 dogs were all snuggled together .

Today Whiskers had a vet appointment and he was updated on some vaccinations and had some blood work done. Everything looks fantastic. He does have an issue where he leaks a little urine at times but as far as we can tell it is not linked to any health concerns. It might be linked to being neutered late in life.

Being an older gent he spends most of his time sleeping and snuggling. If you would like a snuggling partner feel free to fill out an application on our site and any questions you may have please email the foster mom.

1/24/30 Initial Bio: Lets give Whiskers here a warm welcome! Whiskers came from Illinois and was used for breeding purposes. Luckily UYR was able to save him from a very poor situation along with 3 other Yorkies (Bo...in Iowa, Pumpkin...in Illinois and Molly....in Illinois).

Whiskers saw the vet today and the staff thought he was just the cutest pup ever. Everyone fell in love with him. He is being treated currently for a bladder infection and was updated on his some of his vaccinations. In a couple of weeks he will get the rest of his vaccinations.

Unfortunately as it is with most breeding dogs Whiskers is not house trained and we are working diligently on this and he has already shown some improvements. I have no doubt he will make huge strides when the weather warms up. Patience will be the key here now and in the future.

Whiskers would love a home with maybe a retired couple who would like nothing more than to have a lap warmer as he loves to snuggle. He doesnt play with toys so snuggling is his thing Due to his size he cannot go to a home with children under 13. No exceptions!

Any questions please feel free to email the foster mom! Quietcourt2@yahoo.com
