Ai-Chan
California
Ai-Chan

Meet Ai-Chan (means love in Japanese). She is an adorable 10 year old, 4 pound lovebug being fostered near San Francisco, CA.

8/7/19: Ai-Chan is a tiny 3.18 lb.,10 year old adorable little girl fostered in Fremont, California. No out of state applications will be considered, or any application more than a 2 hour drive from Fremont. Ai-Chan is a quiet, tiny, little lap baby. She needs a quiet home with someone who is home most of the time. This girl cannot be left alone for more than 4 hours at a time, and preferably, she would go everywhere with her person. A home with a tiny yard, and no children is the ideal. She loves to walk around her yard slowly, and smell and explore, but this little one must be supervised at all times when she is exploring her yard. Her tiny size makes her an ideal target for birds of prey, and coyotes, etc.

Ai-Chan was lovingly surrendered to us, in the hopes she will find this ideal home to live out her senior years. Her Mommy of many years was diagnosed with Alzheimers, and was no longer able to protect her as is required for a dog this small and fragile.

Updates will be provided as we learn more about this sweet little girl. Ai-Chan is Japanese for love, and she certainly is a little love.

Brandy
California
Brandy

Brandy is a beautiful 4-year-old, 7 pound, little Yorkie girl being fostered in Southern California. Brandy must be an only dog and cannot go to a home with children. Only candidates living in California will be considered for adoption.

THANK YOU TO BRANDY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Rodney and Robin Slagle, L Summers, Barbara Burgess

UPDATE BIO. 05/07/19. These past few months have been a rollercoaster ride as we continue to interview prospective “FurParents” for this unique and special little girl, but the perfect family with the right experience and vetting history has yet to be found…..at least not yet!

We have also had a couple medical issues arise with Brandy over the past few months. Following her routine dental, Brandy was diagnosed with a slight collapsing trachea requiring her to be on daily medication. This condition is barely noticeable when she’s in-doors and quiet, but is noticeable when she’s excited and sometimes the first few minutes she’s walking on a lead. This condition requires that her living environment be kept cool, and her activity level kept to a minimum as summer approaches and the days get hotter. And if that wasn’t enough for this little beauty, for the past several weeks, Brandy has been unable to place her right rear foot squarely on the floor while walking or standing. X-Rays showed a moderate degree of arthritis in both rear hips and knees. Brandy has received a series of 5 weekly Adequin shots to help relieve swelling and help her begin to feel better. Her last weekly Adequin shot will be on Saturday. She will then require these shots on a monthly basis moving forward with hopes that her standing and walking will return to normal. If not, she will be re-evaluated to determine next steps.

At home, Brandy has made slow, but steady progress but continues to have difficulty understanding or conforming to the rules of our pack. Brandy’s judgement continues to be lacking in her interactions with other dogs. Mine, Mine, MINE is Brandy’s MO, and she doesn’t let anyone stand in her way!! During playtime, Brandy will attempt to hijack the fetch toy and hold it hostage upstairs in her bed. She’s always collecting her favorites and hiding them so none of the other can play with them. Thankfully, our pack has just learned how to deal with Brandy’s behavior, which is pretty much overlooked now, but it can sometimes cause chaos with the other lose their patience with her selfishness and unpredictability.

Brandy’s relationship with Alex and I has really improved. She is sweet and loving to him now and rarely nips at either of us, even when being groomed, which is a big improvement. She longs for love and just wants to be on a lap watching TV or reading a book. When we talk or sing to her, her tail just goes wiggle-waggle –it just melts my heart! She has grown very fond of Alex and longs to have alone time with him on the weekends, sharing Cheerio’s or Ice Cream early in the morning, or late at night when the other’s aren’t around. At home, she just the sweetest, most loving little lap-dog. She loves to be held, and even has begun to give “hugs,” leaning her head into your chest or arm and snuggling.

On the other hand, some things have not changed despite lots of behavioral research and attempts at modification and reprogramming. We feel that Brandy will always have a fear of strangers and attempt to charge them and nip at them. Likewise, she will always be fiercely protective of her people and nip at anyone that approaches and/or tries to touch her. This behavior subsides when she gets to know people at home, but it is unlikely she will ever be friendly to strangers that come into our home or those she meets outside of the home. Her leash is RED for a reason – We’re always on-guard for people that try to reach for her while shopping or strolling by the lake. She’s so adorable, she’s irresistible to everyone that sees her!

We’re continuing to love, protect and work on solving her medical issues. Her uniqueness and quirks make our relationship with her extra specially rewarding.

Fosters – Diane & Alex

UPDATE BIO. 01/25/19. With each new day, we love this little girl more and more…..and Brandy has learned to return our love. This little ball of confusion has unraveled and it’s definitely been a magical time of learning for us as foster parents. There are few things as special as gaining the love and trust of a Yorkie like Brandy – such a wonderful little dog that is making great strides as she figures out life, love & trust.

Brandy has taught us so much about taking the time to observe with patience, gain a clear understanding of cues and develop new individual behavioral strategies that she can understand. We believe we have developed goals and behavioral objectives that set her up for success, and there’s just nothing like watching Brandy celebrate her achievements! When it comes to Brandy, there are no “cookie-cutter” strategies that can be applied with success. She meets each new situation and/or person on an individual basis. Therefore, she continues to be a bit unpredictable. We have come to understand that Brandy’s lack of early socialization has caused her to have a significant level of social anxiety which causes her to nip when she meets new people or other dogs. We have made it our goal to put her in as many social situations as possible and she has begun accept new people and even make friends over a short period of time. We anticipate that Brandy will always be suspicious of strangers, but now we understand that if a person respects her space and give her time to observe and feel comfortable, she will warm up and event attempt to make friends.

Miss Brandy continues to be an Alpha Female that really isn’t interested in developing relationships with other dogs, although she has learned how to behave and live and abide by the rules of our pack. She isn’t good at sharing toys and is very possessive of them. Brandy continues to be combative with other dogs when she feels threatened and this little girl is fearless. Over the past few months, she has learned to retreat to her “crib” in our bedroom when she feels overstimulated or uncomfortable around the other dogs. She’ll sit and wait until another dog isn’t looking and will steal their toy and hide it away for herself. She loves “one-on-one” time with me, loves playing ball and has become the most loving lap dog. It’s very clear that Brandy’s preference is to be a “One & Only!” She just loves being hugged, petted and having her belly rubbed now – but she’ll sometimes have a “flashback” and growl as a warning that she’s getting ready to snap because something is making her feel uncomfortable. We have learned to accept this behavior and when we hear her growl, we just stop touching her and let her be. Often, she’ll immediately begin kissing your hand as an apologetic gesture. We still can’t figure out what goes through her mind – except that she just gets “spooked”. Brandy is very animated and energetic. Sometimes I think she expends so much energy when she’s awake that she just crashes into a very deep sleep when she goes to rest.

Smart as a whip, Brandy knows all her basic commands and is always eager to please for a treat!! She is extremely animated and attentive. She listens intently and really loves New Age, Classical and Reikki Relaxation music. She has excellent potty skills and goes directly to her little patch of fake dog grass on the deck when she has to go. She loves structure and responds very well to a predictable schedule. She’s at the door with her baby in her mouth precisely at 9AM and again at 4PM ready for her walk. She is a remarkably well behaved dog that can be taken to hotels, restaurants and virtually any public setting as long as strangers aren’t permitted to touch her. Brandy loves riding in the car and recently came on a 12 hour trip to New Mexico during which she was a perfect little traveler.

Each night I take a moment to place Brandy gently in her “crib” and sit with her for a moment. I look lovingly into her eyes and blink to let her know that she is safe and loved. With each passing month, her expression becomes softer and now she’ll even drift off to sleep as I rub her little belly and kiss her goodnight.

Brandy continues to march to the beat of her own drum, and the music she makes is uniquely beautiful!!

Foster Parents – Diane & Alex

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Brandy is a Special UYR Yorkie with Unique Needs.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Sheldon

Sheldon after his dental
California
Sheldon

Meet the handsome Sheldon. Sheldon is a 10-year-old, 9 lb. yorkie being fostered in southern CA.

UPDATE BIO: 09/07/19: Look at this Adorable Boy!! It’s Sheldon – Comfy & Cozy in his beautiful new Wrapped In Love Blanket! Look at those Gorgeous Pearly Whites!! This healthy boy just had the first dental of his life. He must have been in serious pain. He had many extractions and is now back at his foster home. He’s a “different dog” following his dental! He’s no longer in pain and is a much happier, handsome boy. He’s eating regularly and now loves playing fetch with his “Monkey”.

He continues to “learn the ropes” from his foster brothers and is doing much better with his potty training. He’s also learned how to use the dog door. Sheldon does Yorkie Circles when he gets a treat, sees his leash or meets a new visitor. Sheldon is very frightened of loud noises and finds safety and security relaxing on his foster Mom Patti’s bed.

Sheldon is ready to find his new Forever Family! Please complete Sheldon’s adoption application for consideration.

INITIAL BIO: 08/01/19. Hello – My name is Sheldon! I was recently surrendered by my owner, a 96-year-old woman because she could no longer care for me or provide essential routine medical care. With nowhere to go, UYR decided to give me a second chance. My new foster Mom, Patti picked me up on Saturday, July 28th and has been spending time getting to know me.

I’m a Very Handsome, at 10-years-old and 9 lbs; a Pure Sweetheart! I am very quiet and rarely speak. I like to perch in high places to see everything that is going on around me. I’m excited to go for walks or content to just sit quietly on a lap. I get along well with other dogs and happily greet anyone that comes to visit.

My foster Mom, Patti, took me to the vet on Monday where I received a complete exam, heartworm testing, all of my shots, and my very own microchip! I do have an infection in my mouth and gums because I’ve never had proper dental care. I’ll have my very first dental cleaning just as soon as my infection clears up. Otherwise, I’m a perfectly healthy boy!

Please check back for updates as my Foster Mom gets to know me better…..

Oscar

Meet Oscar, a sweet 6 year old, 6 pound Yorkie who is blind. He is being fostered in southeastern CT.

THANK YOU TO OSCAR'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Janet Davidson, Teresa Beament

7/18/19: I'm the new kid on the block. I was in a shelter for 6 wks. Someone found me wandering on a main road and was concerned that I would be hit by a car. She called animal control and I was taken to the shelter so my picture could be posted in the hope that my family would claim me. I sat in a very scary and noisy shelter for 5 weeks and no one came looking for me. When I was at the shelter they said I had vision and then one day I did not. They took me to the Vet and gave me a diagnosis of SARDS (Sudden acquired retinal degeneration syndrome)... my world went black. For the next week a family adopted me but it was only for one day and they returned me to the shelter, I'm not sure why.

Then the shelter contacted my FM and asked if United Yorkie Rescue was able to take me. I've been here for a few days and still very unsure of myself and my surroundings. FM is giving me plenty of food because she say's I'm a little on the thin side. I get 4 small meals a day which I like. This is all very new to me, I'm very hesitant to walk around the house but I like to when I'm outside. FM says I'm such a good boy, I haven't had any accidents in the house. FM says that there's a special person out there to adopt me because I'm a special needs fur baby.

I hope I get my forever home soon.

I am handsome, right?
Florida
Beau

Beau is a beautiful Yorkie boy. He is approximately 10 years old and weighs 12 pounds. Beau is being fostered in Spring Hill, FL.

UPDATED BIO 07/31/2019: Beau somehow ended up on the streets suffering from severe heat exhaustion and hyperthermia. A good Samaritan rushed him to the vet for immediate treatment and then he was transferred to a shelter where he waited for 5 days for his family to reclaim him. No one came. UYR to the rescue – we stepped up for this sweet and oh-so-deserving boy.

Beau had his wellness vet visit, and results of his bloodwork are pending. But he is a bright, friendly little boy who loves to be with his human. He is vocal and expresses himself with barking, sometimes disguised as huffs and puffs lol. He’s a fella who knows what he wants and if its in the area of food, walks or cuddling, he is expressive. Foster Mom is working on teaching Beau that barking isn’t always the appropriate way to get what he wants. Beau is house-trained and when he sees the harness & leash come out for walks, he will do a happy dance – he loves being outdoors. He walks well on a leash and has such an engaging personality.

Beau appears to have been fed human food in the past (a big No!No!), and he is learning that isn’t going to happen anymore, so he is reluctantly getting used to doggie food. Although there is a resident dog in the home that is Beau’s age, Beau ignores him, so he would be fine being an only dog or perhaps with another mellow companion close to his size and age – Beau likes to be the “leader of the pack” however. Beau loves toys, but he’s rough on them so no soft toys with stuffing for this fella.

Beau appears to be fearful in the vehicle, but time and trust is needed to make him feels more comfortable. Foster Mom thinks that in Beau’s former life he was not taught proper puppy manners, and his new family will need to have patience and understanding with him. He is a very smart boy and will learn quickly and he especially wants to please his humans. Beau is very active for a 10 year old dog, so an active family would be perfect for him, especially since he loves to go on walks. He will be fine in a home with well-behaved children over the age of 8 years old.

Beau’s world has been recently turned upside-down and a bit confusing to him, but having some stability in his life and a forever loving home is the answer! He will sit in your lap for a short while, but prefers to be lying down at your feet. If his human moves however, he will be right behind them! He would gladly share your bed with you, or will also be happy in his own bed close to his people. Is Beau the perfect companion for you? He will be loyal and loving to his forever family.

Initial bio 7/23/19 Beau is a sweet Yorkie who somehow ended up on the streets. He was found by a wonderful person who rushed him to the vet. His temperature was 107.5 degrees; he was suffering from heat exhaustion and heat stroke. He was close to death. He was hyperventilating and hyperthermic. Cool water and ice packs were applied and the vet clinic worked hard to get his temperature down. Beau made it and his temperature was back to normal. The wonderful person who found him knew she couldn't keep him. The vet clinic suggested that someone was probably looking for this guy and the shelter is the best place to take him. Beau spent 5 days in the shelter on his stray hold waiting for the person who once loved him to come get him. No one came. And then someone did....

United Yorkie Rescue got the call and immediately went to the shelter and took Beau to his new foster home. Beau is now settling into his foster home. He has a wonderful foster family where he will get so much love and care until he goes to his forever home. Beau will need a dental, blood work, and a well doggie check-up. Beau wants you to come back soon and see what a great dog he is after his vet visit and his foster family get to know lots more about him.


To date we've spent $342.60 on Beau's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

I am a handsome fella

I love my brother and we have always been together.
Florida
Buddy (and Rocky)

Buddy is an adorable yorkie mix who is 4-1/2 years old and weighs 15 lbs. He and his brother Rocky are bonded and must be adopted together. They are being fostered in Dunedin, FL.

UPDATED BIO 08/17/2019: Buddy and Rocky arrived in UYR several days ago in just a nick of time. Their previous owner passed away suddenly and family was unable to care for them. Buddy & Rocky did not have the best life in their former home and were kept outside in a hot metal storage shed in the hot summer sun of Florida, along with two other small dogs who have also been rescued by UYR.

These two handsome boys are litter mates, and bonded for life and will need to be adopted together. Even though they are fairly young, they have a sweet and mellow personality. Since arriving in their foster home, we have learned that they are excellent travelers in a car using their harnesses and safety leashes. They get in the car and lay down without so much as a peep out of them. Their laid-back demeanors shine through when getting their baths a well. They are getting along with the other dogs in the foster home, and they just want to lay close to their humans. They aren’t too sure about the cat though and bark when they see her. They may have never seen a kitty before, and that may change in time.

Buddy and Rocky have already seen the vet. They were perfect little patients at the clinic, not showing even a hint of aggression, and they appear to be very healthy. We are awaiting their lab results and will update them once received. Their foster parents are just starting to work on house-training, and with frequent outings, they should respond well. The former owners never leash-trained these sweet boys, but they are starting to get the hang of it. Buddy and Rocky are so well-behaved and with their friendly and engaging personalities, they will make a wonderful addition to the right family.

INITIAL BIO 08/15/2019: Buddy and Rocky have just arrived at their foster home. Their previous owner passed away suddenly and family was unable to care for them. Buddy and Rocky did not have the best life at their former home. Sadly, they have lived their whole lives in a hot metal shed behind the owner's house. Two of their buddies were rescued 9 days ago by UYR, and there was no available foster home for these two sweet boys, but all that changed today when they took their Freedom Ride to a loving UYR foster home.

Buddy & Rocky are very bonded to one another and must be adopted together. Buddy's foster parents are just getting to know them and their personality and what kind of home would be best for them. They will be seeing the vet very soon for a well-dog check and to be brought up-to-date on their vaccinations. Once they have this taken care of, they will be ready for adoption. Please check back soon for updates on Buddy and his brother Rocky.

Callie

Callie is a beautiful little Yorkie girl. She is 9 years old and weighs 8.3 pounds. She is being fostered in Clearwater, FL.

THANK YOU TO CALLIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

UPDATED BIO 08/14/2019: Hello Everyone, Callie here. I am the sweetest little diva you could ever hope to meet with an angelic face. I love to cuddle and enjoy my naps. My prior owners never took the time to house-train me, so while my foster parents are working hard with me on this, I may have a few accidents in the house while I am learning where it is appropriate for me to potty in my new home. I will need patience and understanding from my forever parents and just a little time to show me what I need to do.

Some more things to know about me so you can decide if you want me to be your forever girl ….. I love walks – I mean I LOVE walks. I also love to go for car rides and will enjoy laying in the backseat, but please don’t put me in a crate or kennel since I have a lot of anxiety when confined. My perfect forever home would be one with a backyard so I could enjoy the sunshine and explore. I will love you forever and ever ……..

Initial Bio 7/13/19 Callie just arrived today. She needs a grooming. She will see the vet soon. We know that she needs a dental and to be spayed. She will also get blood work.

Callie is not sure of what exactly is going on in her new surroundings and is taking her time to settle in. She seems to like her foster mom, but not her foster dad yet. So much more to know and come about Callie very soon.


To date we've spent $607.96 on Callie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $220.00 in donations.

Cheechie

Cheechie is an adorable Yorkie mix. He is 10 years old and weighs a chubby 16 lbs. Cheechie is being fostered in Ft. Myers, FL.

THANK YOU TO CHEECHI'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Irene and Peter Havas, Taylor Spino, Angie Cagle, Irene and Peter Havas in memory of darling Happy, Paul Sherman, Nestor Sanchez

UPDATED BIO 06/22/2019: Cheechie here – I wanted to give all my fans an update to let you know that I am doing okay and still waiting for my forever home. I am a very mellow boy with a sweet personality, just as quiet as can be and that’s how I like to live. No parties or wild stuff like these little hoodlum yorkies that I live with. Geesh, I can’t even watch a movie in peace around here.

I do have a heart mumur that requires me to take 4 different medications 2x a day, but they keep me going and I don’t have any complaints. I like medication time cuz I get tasty meatballs that foster mom hide the meds in. She's not fooling me at all – I’m a smart cookie who’s been around the block, but the meatballs are so worth taking. I just pretend that I don’t know so she will be happy and keep giving me meatballs. I am great on the leash, house-trained and will also use a pee-pee pad if the weather is bad.

If you are quiet and mellow, then we should hook up cuz I’m quiet and mellow too!

You won't be sorry if you adopt me, and we will both get to watch a movie in peace - together. BONUS! Ummmm, don’t ask me to be a guard dog cuz I’m more of a lover boy and don’t have a high-prey personality. So your squirrels, lizards, birds and possibly cats are safe with me.

Thanks for considering me. Oh, and I am really cute, too. So ….. in closing, my perfect home would be one with a laid-back atmosphere and attitude and someone to love me forever for the rest of my life. Oh, and I like to watch movies, don’t forget that one.

NOTE FROM FOSTER MOM: Please don’t turn away from this sweet and precious boy due to his age or the fact that he needs daily medication. He is an amazing companion dog who only wants his very own family to love. He will reward you with being your best couch buddy – and lot of love in return.

UPDATED BIO 05/14/2019: Cheechie is a wonderful laid-back and mellow boy. He is a bigger yorkie mix boy who has a sweet personality, is leash-trained and will use a pee-pee pad. Don’t ask him to be a guard dog – Cheechie just wants to be a lover. He has a calm and loving personality, so squirrels, lizards, birds and possibly cats are safe with Cheechie for sure.

Cheechie does have a Grade IV heart murmur and is under medical care. He will need to stay on heart meds for the rest of his life. His diet is being adjusted to help him lose some weight and become more active.

Cheechie came into rescue with his brother Chongie. They were placed in a crate and abandoned in a church parking lot with a bag of food. He loves his brother very much and it would be awesome if they could be adopted together, but it would also be okay if they went to different forever homes as well. They both kinda do their own thing - Cheechie loves laying on the couch and watching TV and Chongie is very playful.

Cheechie’s perfect home would be a calm and quiet atmosphere with people to love him and let him live out his remaining years in comfort. If Chongie could come along, it would be perfect!

NOTE FROM FOSTER MOM: Please don’t turn away from this sweet and precious boy due to his age or the fact that he needs daily medication. He is an amazing companion dog who only wants his very own family to love. He will reward you with being your best couch buddy – and lot of love in return.

UPDATED BIO 04/13/2019: Hi everybody, it's Cheech here, lovingly called Cheechie at my foster home. I am a good boy but kinda on the lazy side – for now. Foster Mom said that I really need to be walked on a regular basis so that I can – ummmm – lose a bit of weight. Right now, my favorite thing to do is hang around the house and watch TV. What’s wrong with that? I would love to have a snack while I’m watching TV, but Foster Mom says “no no Cheechie. We are on a diet.” So I get a green bean for a snack. Wow!

I came into UYR with my buddy Chong. You may remember that our previous owner dropped us both off in a church parking lot and we were in a crate together. That wasn’t very nice, was it? But we won the lottery since a very nice person found us and got in touch with UYR – and we love our Foster Mom & Dad.

I love Chong very much and it would be awesome to be adopted into the same home with him, but I would also be okay if we went to different forever homes as well. We both kinda do our own thing - he only cares about playing – a lot - and I am more of a couch potato right now.

So .... if you have a quiet home and don't expect me to do any heavy lifting or wash windows, then I may be your perfect pal. I’ll be your constant buddy if you like to watch TV, as long as I get to go on several walks every day so that I can “slim down”. What does that even mean anyway?

NOTE FROM FOSTER MOM: Please don’t turn away from Cheech due to his age. He has many more years to be a loyal and loving companion to his adopter. Older dogs, like older people, need love too and Cheech has a lot of that to give.

UPDATED BIO 02/23/2019: Cheech is doing very well in his foster home. He is a very laid back kinda fella and agreeable with all people and pups. Cheech can be a little lazy, but that could be attributed to his Grade IV heart murmur . However, he does show some pep in his step when meal time is approaching. Cheech is doing well with his house-training and enjoys a stroll around the back yard. Foster Mom has found that he needs encouragement to get up and about because he does need to lose a pound or two. So, no dessert for Cheechie, just sweet kisses and hugs.

Cheech loves his friend Chong and they do well together. They may do their own thing during the day but when night settles in, they stay with each other - comfy in the security of friendship. So Foster Mom would love to see them remain together.

UPDATED BIO 02/15/2019: Cheech and his brother Chong are acclimating nicely to their foster home after being abandoned in a crate dumped in a church parking lot, along with a bag of food. Cheech has seen the vet and began the process of updating his vaccinations. Thankfully both dogs are heartworm & fecal negative. Cheech does need a dental badly, but will a radiograph of his heart should be done prior to anesthesia since he has a Heart Murmur. He has been started on antibiotics for the skin infection from scratching due to an infestation of fleas and should feel better really soon.

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

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

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

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

Cheech and Chong are bonded and must be adopted together.

THANK YOU TO CHONGIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

UPDATED BIO 06/17/2019: Hi everybody – Chongie here. I’m checking in with all my people that may want to adopt me. You already know that I am a great boy. I am quiet, and the only time I may grumble is if you don't throw me the ball. I do require a kong ball and a plush toy. A boy has to have choices because sometimes you feel like a squeak and sometimes you don't.

I would like a yard to frolic in but if you don’t have a fenced yard, then a few long walks everyday would be fun, too. My potty habits have improved and I still do have an accident here and there, but I am getting better and better. I enjoy being with my family whether we are playing or just watching TV.

Well, that's all for now, folks. You can email my foster mom with any questions and I promise she is going to tell you the same things I did. Oh, and I’m sure she will say lots more sweet things about me.

UPDATED BIO 05/21/2019: Hi everybody – Chongie here. Just wanted you to remind you that I am still waiting for my furever home. I am simply shocked that someone hasn't noticed all of my charm yet. Foster Mom says I am a really good kid. She loves me and says "Chongie, you’re such a good boy and I am sure your new home is just around the corner." I sure do hope she is right – I am so ready to begin my new life in my forever home. I’ve been here since February – it’s great here but I’m looking for my forever and ever parents.

I love my brother Cheechie very much and it would be awesome to be adopted into the same home with him, but I would also be okay if we went to different forever homes as well. We both kinda do our own thing - he only cares about laying on the couch and watching TV and I love playing.

I have made good progress with my house-training. I will go on pee-pee pads and also will go outside; I only have an accident here and, but it’s not too often. You may remember that I had bladder stone surgery – not very much fun. I will need to be kept on a special diet so I won’t get any more bladder stones and it is really yummy. Foster Mom said that it costs the same as a high-quality dog food, and you know I am worth it!

You may be wondering what I need in my forever …… here’s a short list:

- I need a loving and fun mom and/or dad who will take me on walks and play with me.

- A fenced yard would be pawsome, but if you walk me a few times a day then I will be ok with that.

- I will need (2) new Kong balls a month. Yes, I really am hard on them but I just love them.

- And since you will be shopping for the new Kongs, feel free to pick up a new squeak toy as well. No sense going for just a couple of balls.

- I like to sleep with you, too. Sometimes I will opt for an ottoman that is close by. But just assume we will be together, lol!

Well that's really all I have to say for now – you know what to do - email Foster Mom with any questions that you may have about me. Look forward to meeting you soon.

UPDATED BIO 04/13/2019: Hi, it’s Chong here, lovingly called Chongo in my foster home. It's Mr. Chongo in some circles. I am a pretty laid-back fellow. I do love to have a ball or toy to chew on and am playful as well. I like being around my people – a lot. I hang out with the other pups here too. I need to lose some weight so it would be a good idea for me to go on walks 2-3x a day to help me do that.

I came into UYR with my buddy Cheech. You may remember that our previous owner dropped us both off in a church parking lot and we were in a crate together. That wasn’t very nice, was it? But we won the lottery since a very nice person found us and got in touch with UYR – and we love our Foster Mom & Dad.

I love Cheech very much and it would be awesome to be adopted into the same home with him, but I would also be okay if we went to different forever homes as well. We both kinda do our own thing - he only cares about laying on the couch and watching TV and I love playing.

I did have surgery to remove some bladder stones after coming to my foster home, but I am doing great now and feel so much better. I am on a special diet now and need to be on this diet for the rest of my life so that the stones don’t come back. At first, I tried the food that was called pate’ – I think that’s a fancy French word. I didn't like it at all. Foster Mom then tried the beef stew and it was a big winner with me.

If you looking for a doggie companion that is game to try new things, then I would be your guy. I am very easy-to-please and even easier to love. Oh, and I sleep in the bed. The big bed that is. Don't worry, I will leave room for you, too.

UPDATED BIO 02/23/2019: Hi everybody, it's me - Chong! Well, I had my surgery to remove the stones in my bladder and I am doing very good. They say some people have rocks in their head – well, I had rocks in my bladder! And these rocks must have been like diamonds because they sure did cost a lot to take them out. This bill rocked my world.

I want to thank everyone so much for caring about me and all the well wishes that you sent. If you can please help me get this bill behind me, I would be so grateful – and relieved. Thanks again; and if you would like to donate towards my vetting expenses, you can click the donate button below and both me and UYR would so appreciative. And your donation will allow UYR to continue to take in dogs like me with medical issues.

UPDATED BIO 02/16/2019: URGENT UPDATE! Chong saw the doctor recently for a bladder infection and medication was prescribed. However, even though he was getting along well and enjoying playing and frolicking about, he still had blood in his urine. He saw the vet today and they did some testing and discovered that he had bladder stones and needed emergency surgery. Chong is perplexed since he never ate stones and couldn't understand how they could get in his bladder! He is in emergency surgery right now. Hopefully all will go well and he will soon be home to his brother Cheech who is missing him.

Chong's surgery is expected to cost approximately $1,000. We are urgently asking our rescue angels to please consider making a donation towards his vetting expenses so that UYR can continue to help little homeless dogs like Chong. Every donation helps.

UPDATED BIO 01/19/2019: Chong and his brother Cheech are acclimating nicely to their foster home after being abandoned in a crate dumped in a church parking lot, along with a bag of food. Chong has seen the vet and began the process of updating his vaccinations. Thankfully both dogs are heartworm & fecal negative. Chong does need a dental badly and this will be scheduled soon.

Because Chong is a chubby 18 lbs, Foster Mom has him on a weight-reduction diet so that he can be a healthier and happier weight. Stay tuned for more information on both Chong and Cheech as his foster parents get to know them better.

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

I am feeling so much better now

I was sad at the shelter
Florida
CoCo

MEET COCO. She is a yorkie/silky/poodle mix who is 9 years old and weighs 17 lbs. Sweet CoCo is being fostered in Dunedin, FL.

THANK YOU TO COCO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Janet Hart, Samantha Jones

UPDATED BIO 07/25/2019: This sweet girl arrived in United Yorkie Rescue recently from a high-kill shelter. CoCo was a loving and loyal companion all her life to her former owners, and once she became older and needed veterinary care, she was dumped at the shelter - heartbreaking!

CoCo has been in her foster home for only a couple of days, but has proven herself to be quite a sweetheart. She was good in her crate on the ride home. She allowed Foster Mom to bathe her without any trouble. She gets along great with other dogs, although she doesn’t yet mingle with them too much, but when she does, there’s absolutely not a hint of trouble. And she hasn’t had any issues with the cat. She has had a very rough life for a while before she came into foster care, and yet she still loves to be petted and loved on.

CoCo has already been seen by the vet, and what we learned is that she does have a pretty bad yeast infection on a fairly large portion of her body. She also has severe ear infections, which is likely causing her to be a little hearing-impaired, and hopefully that will resolve itself once the infection heals. CoCo will be getting medicated baths every other night, as well as several medications for her yeast infection, along with an ear cleaner and medicated drops for her ears. The vet thinks that her skin condition will clear up, but that she will likely have dark pigmented skin where the horrible yeast infection had been untreated for a long period of time. Luckily, it’s not in places that you would normally see, and her cute little curls will still be adorable.

CoCo was an absolute angel while getting her ears cleaned and her other vet care – sweet girlie! It should be noted that even though she was turned into the shelter with a history of “epilepsy”, she has NOT had any seizures both at the facility, or in her foster home.

We’re still learning a lot about our adorable sweet girl, so check back for updates on her. We are currently accepting applications for her, but she can’t be adopted until she is done with all of her medical care.

INITIAL BIO 07/23/2019: This sweet girl arrived in United Yorkie Rescue today from a high-kill shelter. CoCo was a loving and loyal companion all her life to her former owners, and once she became older and needed veterinary care, she was dumped at the shelter - heartbreaking! It is believed that she is house-trained and likes all people.

The former owners told the shelter that she had a seizure disorder; however, no seizure activity was ever observed during the 9 days she was at the shelter. CoCo does have evidence of chronic skin changes and otitis and also has moderate dental disease, consistent with her breed and age. She will see the vet tomorrow, so please stay tuned for more information on CoCo.

I am so pretty after grooming

My brother Rambo and I have been together all our lives
Florida
Cookie (and Rambo)

MEET COOKIE. He is an adorable male yorkie who is 6 years old and weighs 13 pounds. He is bonded with his brother Rambo and they must be adopted together. Cookie is being fostered in Freeport, FL.

UPDATED BIO 08/07/2019: Cookie and Rambo are littermates and have been together their whole lives. Their previous owner passed away suddenly and family was unable to care for them. Cookie and Rambo did not have the best life in their former home and were kept outside in a hot metal storage shed, along with two other small dogs. All that changed when UYR stepped up. These brothers are bonded with one another and must be adopted together.

Cookie saw the vet today for updated vaccinations and got an amazing report. He was Heartworm Negative and his labs came back great. Hooray! Once he is neutered on 08/27, he will be ready for his forever home. Cookie’s foster mom says that both he and Rambo are very sweet and loving dogs in spite of their prior circumstances, and they love to follow their person around. They are enjoying human companionship since they most likely haven’t had much of that in their prior lives. When Cookie is asked to smile, he will show his teeth and gums – just like a smile – sweet! House-training is a work in progress, but they are improving daily. They are happy to go into the fenced yard to do their business, but wear bellybands in the house during the training period. They walk well on a leash and love to go for car rides.

Please check back soon for updates on Cookie and his brother Rambo. These adorable doggies will be adopted quickly, so if you are interested, put in your adoption application – now!

INITIAL BIO 08/06/2019: Cookie and Rambo have just arrived at their foster home. Their previous owner passed away suddenly and family was unable to care for them. Cookie and Rambo did not have the best life at their former home, but that has all changed now that they are in a loving UYR foster home. They are very bonded to one another and must be adopted together. Cookie's foster parents are just getting to know them and their personality and what kind of home would be best for them. They will be seeing the vet tomorrow for a well-dog check and to be brought up-to-date on their vaccinations. Once they are neutered and microchipped, they will be ready for adoption. Please check back soon for updates on Cookie and his buddy Rambo.

Daisy Mae

Daisy Mae is an adorable 5-month-old, 6-pound Yorkie puppy girl being fostered in Leesburg, FL.

INITIAL BIO 08/17/2019: Sweet Daisy Mae has a Liver Shunt and will need expensive surgery in order to survive. This little puppy is ready to give kisses to everyone. She likes to be with her foster mom and dad, but also is keeping herself busy getting to know her new home, backyard and fur friends. She seems to be okay in her doggie crate, though she would rather be with her foster mom and dad. She didn't seem to care too much for her special RX L/D food, which is a low protein food to help her feel better until she gets Liver Shunt surgery on September 16th. Until then there will be updates on Daisy Mae and her little personality. Puppies change everyday so come back soon.

Daisy Mae will need to remain in her foster home most likely for 3 months. No applications will be considered until after her surgery and subsequent follow-up. The surgery will ensure that the ameroid constrictor (which slowly closes the shunt) was successfully placed. At the follow-up exam 4-6 weeks after the surgery, we then may know if her constrictor fully closed her shunt. Any applications received will be kept in a file to be considered when we know she is ready for adoption.

Daisy Mae's surgery will be expensive. This life-saving surgery will ensure that Daisy Mae will live a long, healthy life. Please help us help this little puppy to have the life she deserves. If surgery will give her that life, then let's make sure she gets it. Please donate.


To date we've spent $0 on Daisy Mae's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.
Please donate!

Harmony

Harmony is approximately 10 years old and now weighs a healthy 11 pounds. She is being fostered in Altamonte Springs, FL.

THANK YOU TO HARMONY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Irene and Peter Havas in memory of darling Happy, Patricia Riddle, Nestor Sanchez

UPDATED BIO 07/31/2019: Here’s Harmony again – this sweet girl was found on the streets in horrible condition. Fast Forward 6 weeks – she is thriving and loving life in her foster home. Here’s what she had to say today:

Harmony here. Well, since I last reported in, I've had my dental cleaning done and only lost two teeth! So, I still have a lot of toofers left. And I have no trouble eating at all, so don’t worry about that. In fact, I have gained two pounds, so I am now at a normal healthy weight.

But the best news is that the awful infection in both of my ears is all cleared up, and my hair is starting to grow back – I still have a little way to go, but Foster Mom says I am beautiful and I believe her! I am now walking outside on a leash, and do most of my business there. Occasionally, I do still go inside, but have gotten much better at going on the potty pads when I do. Pretty smart of me, huh? I would still love a fenced-in yard so that I can get more exercise. Oh, in case you were wondering about me getting along with the kitty cat – it took some getting used to, but we now get along great together, and I don't harass her like I did at first. She is grateful lol.

Foster mom says I'm very sweet, lovable and affectionate. And I do love belly rubs! Also, I am now allowed to sleep in the big people bed, and on occasion my doggie bed. Why am I now allowed you may ask? Even though I have bilateral cataracts so I am vision-challenged, I have shown Foster Mom that I can see well enough to know if I'm too close to the edge and won’t fall off. I'm ready to go home with someone who can love me like my Foster Mom does. Oh, and one more thing, my forever parents must endure all the kisses I will be giving them! In other words, I’m a perfect companion – why wouldn’t you want to adopt me? I will love you forever and smother you in kisses. XOXOXOXO, Harmony

UPDATED BIO 06/26/2019: Sweet Harmony was found on the streets in horrible condition. Fast Forward a few days – she is thriving and loving life in her foster home. Here’s what she had to say just today:

Harmony here. I'm feeling so much better now! I've been getting some good medicine and good food since I was rescued, and my skin condition is almost all healed. My hair loss turned out just to be environmental allergies, probably from being on the streets as long as I was without anyone to take care of me; and the doctor says my hair should grow back just fine. I had bilateral ear infections, but I'll only be on my ear medicine for 7 more days, because they are feeling so much better.

The vet said that I would be healthier if I weighed a couple more pounds – my healthy weight should be 10-1/2 to 11 pounds. I can tell you right now that gaining some weight will not be a problem because I'm eating like a horse. I have bilateral cataracts and have very little vision in my left eye, but still have some vision in my right eye. This doesn't stop me from getting around without a hitch. Because of my impaired vision, I'm sleeping in a comfy dog bed on the floor. Foster Mom said that is safer for me than sleeping in the big human bed since she is afraid I could fall off and hurt myself. Hey, I’m just happy to have a bed to sleep in ‘cuz sleeping on the streets wasn’t much fun.

Foster Mom says that I'm a really sweet and quiet girl. Although I'm not used to walking on a leash, I'm learning to like that and I especially like being out in the sun and rolling in the grass. I've had all my vaccinations, and will be getting my teeth all shiny and clean tomorrow, and then I'll be ready to go to a new home with whoever wants me to love them the most!

Here’s what I need in my forever home:

- No children under 14 years old – this is for my safety since I’m vision-impaired

- A home with a fenced-in yard would be great since I am getting good at going potty outside, but I may have accidents inside until I get accustomed to the new smells and routine of a new home.

- I will be fine being your only four-legged companion, but if you have another dog close to my age and size, I’ll be okay with that, too.

Initial Bio 6/20/19 Little Harmony was found on the streets in horrible condition. Just look at her sad picture. She has severe hair loss on her back and sides. It is likely she has a very bad bacterial and yeast infection on her skin and in her ears. She smelled awful. The shelter did what they could for her. They gave her antibiotics for her skin and her ears, and they worked very hard to get her to a foster home as soon as possible. When she arrived at her foster home her foster mom gave her a nice warm medicated shampoo bath. After her bath she smelled better, but her skin is still itchy. She has on a baby onesie to cover the bare skin and scabs and to keep her from scratching.

Harmony has a cataract in one eye, but she does see. She walked all around her foster home exploring everything. She even cruised the backyard. She gobbled down her meals and loved the treats she was offered including some steamed broccoli. She was happy in her little doggie bed. Harmony was fine with the other dogs in the home, although she didn't have anything to do with them she blended in just fine.

Harmony will be seeing her vet very soon. At that time she will have blood work done, her skin and ears checked, and given a full physical exam.

Can you say cuteness overload?

I am very sweet too
Florida
Radar

Meet Radar. He is an 8-9 year old Yorkie mix. He is 14 pounds of sweetness. Radar is being fostered in Largo, FL.

UPDATED BIO 08/05/2019: Radar recently arrived at his foster home after being on the streets for a while. No one came forward to claim this sweet boy. Foster Mom says that he is a shy easy-going fella who is playful and loving, but on his own terms. He loves treats and toys and his favorite thing to do is to go on walks. This smart boy is both house-trained and crate-trained – wow.

Radar has a fenced-in yard in his foster home, but does not like to be outside alone which is never a good idea anyway for any dog. He is always up for the adventure that a nice long walk provides him with. He would make a wonderful little traveling companion since he loves to be on the go and behaves very nicely in the car.

Radar enjoys bath-time and being brushed, and even having his face washed – what a perfect little man! He is fearful of the vacuum cleaner but on the positive side, he is a bonafide member of the Clean Plate Club. He enjoys lying on his back and begging for belly rubs – awwwww. He loves attention from his humans and will “talk” to them and follow them around from room-to-room. Giving Radar one of his favorite treats is a surefire way to become his best friend in a nano-second.

Radar would do fine in a home with another small, easy-going doggie companion, but he wants to be the Boss of the Toys for sure. He can only be placed in a home with children over the age of 12 years old since he can be protective of his toys during playtime.

Radar has seen the vet for a well-doggie check, dental and a blood panel – he has been microchipped as well. Poor Radar lost 9 teeth at his dental, and the vet feels that he has probably never had a dental previously. Radar is a robust and healthy little boy and is ready for his forever home – the vet has said he is a bit on the chubby side, so his foster parents are working on getting him to a healthier weight, between 10-12 lbs. Please stay tuned and come back soon to learn more about Radar.

I am a handsome boy

My brother Cookie and I have been together all our lives
Florida
Rambo (and Cookie)

MEET RAMBO. He is an adorable male yorkie who is 6 years old and weighs 14 pounds. He is bonded with his brother Cookie and they must be adopted together. Rambo is being fostered in Freeport, FL.

UPDATED BIO 08/07/2019: Rambo and Cookie are littermates and have been together their whole lives. Their previous owner passed away suddenly and family was unable to care for them. Rambo and Cookie did not have the best life in their former home and were kept outside in a hot metal storage shed, along with two other small dogs. All that changed when UYR stepped up. These brothers are bonded with one another and must be adopted together.

Rambo saw the vet today for updated vaccinations and got an amazing report. He was Heartworm Negative and his labs came back great. Hooray! Once he is neutered on 08/27, he will be ready for his forever home. Rambo does have a slight skin issue, so he received a steroid shot and some antibiotics and this should clear up quickly. Once he is neutered on 08/27, he will be ready for his forever home. Rambo’s foster mom says that both he and Cookie are very sweet and loving dogs in spite of their prior circumstances, and they love to follow their person around. They are enjoying human companionship since they most likely haven’t had much of that in their prior lives. House-training is a work in progress, but they are improving daily. They are happy to go into the fenced yard to do their business, but wear bellybands in the house during the training period. They walk well on a leash and love to go for car rides.

Please check back soon for updates on Rambo and his brother Cookie. These adorable doggies will be adopted quickly, so if you are interested, put in your adoption application – now!

INITIAL BIO 08/05/2019: Rambo and Cookie have just arrived at their foster home. Their previous owner passed away suddenly and family was unable to care for them. Rambo and Cookie did not have the best life at their former home, but that has all changed now that they are in a loving UYR foster home. They are very bonded to one another and must be adopted together. Rambo''s foster parents are just getting to know them and their personality and what kind of home would be best for them. They will be seeing the vet tomorrow for a well-dog check and to be brought up-to-date on their vaccinations. Once they are neutered and microchipped, they will be ready for adoption. Please check back soon for updates on Rambo and his buddy Cookie.


To date we've spent $350.00 on Rambo (and Cookie)'s vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Hello my name is Riley. Can I be yours?
Florida
Riley

This little Yorkie boy is Riley. He is 11 years old and weighs 9.4 pounds. Riley is being fostered in Odessa, FL.

UPDATED BIO 08/13/2019: Poor Riley has been through a lot before he arrived in UYR. He was found wandering the streets, then spent some time at the shelter, and when his owner didn’t come for him, he found his way to his UYR foster home.

Foster mom says that Riley is a very friendly and sweet boy and BONUS! He is house-trained, although he really enjoys his walks and walks nicely on a leash. So far he doesn’t like sitting in her lap, but that may change as time goes go, but he does enjoy lying on the couch with her and is warming up to her.

Riley has seen the vet and his bloodwork looks good, so he is a healthy little boy other than a cough and an occasional sneeze. He was put on antibiotics so this should clear up really soon. The cough and sneeze could likely be as a result of his nasty mouth that is full of bacteria and bad teeth, and it is likely it will resolve once he has his dental in a few weeks. Riley also has immature bilateral cataracts, but he can see just fine and has no problems getting around. It’s normal for dogs of his age to have the beginnings of cataracts and that is what Riley has. Please stay tuned to learn more about little Riley who is so very deserving of a loving and forever family of his own.

Initial Bio 8/9/19 Little Riley has had quite a lot happen to him in the last few weeks of his life. He was found wandering the streets. He spent some time in the shelter while waiting for his owner to come for him. So Riley waited, and as what happens too often, no one came for him. But Riley was very lucky. A wonderful person, who knew she couldn't keep him, but also knew that he needed to have a wonderful home and only United Yorkie Rescue could find that wonderful home told the shelter if the owners were not found she wanted Riley. And today this wonderful person adopted Riley from the shelter and then surrendered him to United Yorkie Rescue to find him the perfect forever home. United Yorkie Rescue assured both Riley and his angel we would take care of him and find him the absolute perfect home.

Riley needs a dental badly. His teeth and mouth are really bad and there may be some infection. He also has a little cough and a mild 1 out of 4 luxating patella. He will be seeing the vet very soon and at that time we will know more about him. Both the shelter and the angel who adopted him said he was a friendly, sweet boy. He liked his walks, did well on the leash, he got along well with other dogs and liked them. He was good with people and rode well in the car. We are not sure he is house trained, and that will be one of the things we will learn about him.

Please come back soon and along with his foster mom and dad and United Yorkie Rescue get to know adorable Riley.


To date we've spent $334.86 on Riley's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

I know I am cute

Yes I am a handsome fella
Florida
Rocco

Rocco is a tiny 9-1/2 year old 6 pound cutie. He is being fostered in Jacksonville, FL.

THANK YOU TO ROCCO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Mary Katherine Hill, Ann Fillmen, Behnaz Memarzadeh, Barbara Burgess

UPDATED BIO 08/16/2019: Rocco here – coming to you from my new foster home in Jacksonville, FL. I have some new things here to learn about. Let’s see – first, there is this giant dog that lives here! I'm told he is a Golden Retriever, but he is very nice to me so I guess I like him okay. Then there is the cat. We do not see eye to eye quite yet and there have been a few tense moments exchanged, but I’m willing to bend if she is. I sure do hope we can work things out together.

Me and my new Foster Mom need time to learn about each other. I take more time to warm up to men but love the women. Foster Mom is working with me to help me learn better ways to react to stressful situations. She says it will take time and reminds me that I need to be patient. Luckily, she does things slowly and gradually introduces things that may be stressful to me. That way I get to learn that those stressful things are not as bad as I originally thought.

I’m learning some new things that are fun – I can use the doggie steps to get up on Foster Mom’s bed. She puts my blanket on the bed to nap, and I asked her to put my toys there, too, so that I can keep an eye on them. I am as cute as a bug. I am fully vetted and even had a dental so my teeth are nice and shiny clean. I am on Heartworm Preventative and Flea/Tick Preventative, and I also take a glucosamine supplement to keep my joints working right. Don’t worry I can still run and jump easily. I am house-trained, but I wear a bellyband in the house because sometimes I lift my leg to mark. I will let you know when I need to go outside to do my business.

NOTE FROM ROCCO’S FOSTER MOM: Rocco has only been here a few days with me and my critters. Plans are to help him with some behavior issues so he will be prepared for his furever home. Rocco is better when people approach him calmly and interact softly. Rocco may have had some not-so-good experiences with a man in the past, so he may be fearful at first. Most of the time he prefers interactions to be on his terms. One of his favorite things are belly rubs – lots of them! He also enjoys his squeaky toys and will carry them around. At this time, I feel that Rocco would be happier if placed in the home with only a mom. Rocco likes walks, but would enjoy a fenced yard – this is not a deal breaker, though. Please give both of us time to adjust and learn about each other.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Rocco’s small size, he cannot go into a home with children under the age of 16 years old. No exceptions will be made.


To date we've spent $876.70 on Rocco's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $893.70 in donations.

I am a handsome fella

I love my brother and we have always been together.
Florida
Rocky (and Buddy)

Rocky is an adorable yorkie mix who is 4-1/2 years old and weighs 12-1/2 lbs. He and his brother Buddy are bonded and must be adopted together. They are being fostered in Dunedin, FL.

UPDATED BIO 08/17/2019: Rocky and Buddy arrived in UYR several days ago in just a nick of time. Their previous owner passed away suddenly and family was unable to care for them. Rocky and Buddy did not have the best life in their former home and were kept outside in a hot metal storage shed in the hot summer sun of Florida, along with two other small dogs who have also been rescued by UYR.

These two handsome boys are litter mates, and bonded for life and will need to be adopted together. Even though they are fairly young, they have a sweet and mellow personality. Since arriving in their foster home, we have learned that they are excellent travelers in a car using their harnesses and safety leashes. They get in the car and lay down without so much as a peep out of them. Their laid-back demeanors shine through when getting their baths a well. They are getting along with the other dogs in the foster home, and they just want to lay close to their humans. They aren’t too sure about the cat though and bark when they see her. They may have never seen a kitty before, and that may change in time.

Rocky and Buddy have already seen the vet. They were perfect little patients at the clinic, not showing even a hint of aggression, and they appear to be very healthy. We are awaiting their lab results and will update them once received. Their foster parents are just starting to work on house-training, and with frequent outings, they should respond well. The former owners never leash-trained these sweet boys, but they are starting to get the hang of it. Rocky and Buddy are so well-behaved and with their friendly and engaging personalities, they will make a wonderful addition to the right family.

INITIAL BIO 08/15/2019: Rocky & Buddy have just arrived at their foster home. Their previous owner passed away suddenly and family was unable to care for them. Rocky & Buddy did not have the best life at their former home. Sadly, they have lived their whole lives in a hot metal shed behind the owner's house. Two of their buddies were rescued 9 days ago by UYR, and there was no available foster home for these two sweet boys, but all that changed today when they took their Freedom Ride to a loving UYR foster home.

Rocky & Buddy are very bonded to one another and must be adopted together. Rocky's foster parents are just getting to know them and their personality and what kind of home would be best for them. They will be seeing the vet very soon for a well-dog check and to be brought up-to-date on their vaccinations. Once they have this taken care of, they will be ready for adoption. Please check back soon for updates on Rocky and his brother Buddy.

I am looking beautiful after my grooming

I will love you forever.
Florida
Rosie

Rosie is a sweet senior Yorkie. She is about 10 years old and weighs 5.4 pounds. Rosie is being fostered in St. Augustine, FL

THANK YOU TO ROSIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Patricia Riddle

UPDATED BIO 08/17/2019: Rosie is a beautiful little senior yorkie who was sadly surrendered by her owner who could no longer provide for her care. She has been in her loving foster home for almost a month now. Rosie has come a long way since she first arrived and seems to get along with all the doggies & kitties in the home. She will even approach them in a curious way to say ‘hello’, and even the kitties seem to like her. They show their acceptance by rubbing over her body and Rosie seems to enjoy the interaction.

Rosie is coming out of her shell every day – she’s had a lot of changes in her life and sometimes accepting those changes is slow. She prefers being on the floor, but close to her people. She also enjoys getting attention from her foster parents but is not yet comfortable enough to sit on their laps. This may change as time goes by. Rosie’s favorite thing to do is to explore outside – she loves being outside and will go from one side of the yard to the other side, smelling and exploring all the while. It would be great for her to be adopted into a furever home with a fenced yard, but that is not a deal breaker as long as she can go for long walks and explore as she walks.

Rosie has seen the vet and she does have age-related bilateral cataracts but appears to see well enough to get around. She may also have age-related arthritis and has been started on glucosamine supplements which should definitely help. Her labs showed some low values for her thyroid and pancreas, and she is on meds for both for 2 months to see if there is improvement. We don’t know at this time how her body will react to the meds nor if she will need meds for the rest of her life. Once that is determined, Rosie will be scheduled for a dental and be ready to be adopted in 6-8 weeks.

Please stay tuned to learn more about this sweet little girlie. Rosie’s vetting has been a bit expensive and there’s more vetting to be done in the future. If you have been touched by this sweet girlie’s story, please consider a donation to UYR, which can easily be done by clicking on the PayPal link below.

Initial Bio 7/20/19 Rosie is a beautiful senior Yorkie. Her former mom's medical issues made it very hard for her to care for Rosie any longer. She reached out to United Yorkie Rescue to help her. Sadly, and with tears, she knew Rosie had to be a UYR girl to get the care she could no longer provide for her.

Rosie has cataracts but she has vision and gets around very good. She will need all her vaccinations updated, as well as a heartworm test and blood work. She loves being outdoors walking around and smelling everything in her new environment.

Rosie has only been in her foster home a few days and has been checking everything out. She may be a senior, but she is as curious about her new surroundings and home as a young pup. After Rosie's vet visit her foster parents will know if she has any medical issues that need to be taken care of, as well as what she needs in her forever home. Please come back soon as Rosie will be seeing the vet on Monday 07/29 and we will know more about her health at that time.


To date we've spent $281.70 on Rosie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $25.00 in donations.

I love my foster home. No more shelter for me.

Exploring everything is hard work. Time for a rest.
Florida
Teddy Bear

Meet adorable Teddy Bear. This sweet Poodle mix is only 2 years old. Teddy Bear weighs 11.2 pounds. He is being fostered in Leesburg, FL.

Initial bio 8/13/19 Sweet Teddy Bear was sprung from the shelter today and is loving the freedom of his foster home. At only 2 years old being in the shelter was hard for him. This young fellow likes to run around and explore. He is having so much fun in his foster home's fenced backyard. He is also getting along great with the other dogs in the home. We know he really likes people. He has already shown affection and given lots of kisses to his foster mom and dad.

Teddy Bear will see the vet soon. He needs a surgery for a cryptorchid, which is a bigger surgery than a regular neuter. The vet has to make an incision to locate and remove his undescended testicle.

There is still so much more to learn about Teddy Bear. We are not sure of his house training, leash walking, if he likes children, and his needs in a forever home. Once we know Teddy's real personality we will share it. Please check back soon. Right now we expect that after he heals from his surgery he will be ready to go to his forever home.


To date we've spent $182.38 on Teddy Bear's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Bonded Pair
Georgia
Aria & Jasmine

Two beautiful yorkie sisters (8# each and 2 years old) who have relied on each other for their existence! METRO ATLANTA AREA ONLY (no exceptions)

PLEASE CONTACT: passionforanimals5017@gmail.com

7/9/19: Jasmine and Aria were obtained as young pups and, tragically, put outside to live in the elements 24/7 when they were about 6-8 months old! A neighbor heard their cries and couldn’t take it anymore so asked owner if she could have the dogs. Reluctantly, woman gave them up! Thank goodness as their fate surely would have been a tragic one being so small! Vet Care was not provided until they got into Rescue in June 2019.

Because of their neglectful past, they’re a little timid at first but warm up rather quickly and in such need of LOVE, AFFECTION, and NURTURING (since they did NOT get that during their young little life!)

They were examined, tested for heartworms, bathed, vaccinated, spayed and microchipped. ALL GOOD, THANKFULLY!

These PRECIOUS dogs are very bonded to each other and survived by being close when they were outdoors 24/7 in the HOT and COLD environments! We will not separate them as they are inseparable and relied on each other to survive their horrible past!

Jasmine is the darker one and more dominant of the two; Aria is the lighter one and more submissive to Jasmine

METRO ATLANTA AREA ONLY

Betty
Illinois
Betty

Betty is a 6 year old, 14 pound sweet Yorkie Mix being fostered in Caseyville, Illinois.

THANK YOU TO BETTY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Kimberly Bandusky, Harlan Jones, Missy Kolar, Jim and Kim Scheutzenhoefer

BIO UPDATE: 07/27/19 - Betty had her dental and only lost 4 teeth. She has totally recovered from that and is happy has can be. Even more amazing, she is now down to a slim and trim 9.6 pounds!! What an amazing transformation!! She is a totally different dog now that she’s not carrying around the extra weight. She runs and jumps and plays...but also still loves being a couch potato and snuggling.

The weight loss has significantly helped her breathing and snoring issues, and I can’t even imagine how much better her joints feel. Betty is the perfect dog and is now totally ready for her forever home. Don’t miss out on this amazing little girl. Fill out an application today!

6/16/19 - Betty has now been to the vet and has also lost a whole pound! She is running around and feeling better just having that one extra pound off, but she does still have more to lose. She is up to date on her shots now, and also heart worm negative. The vet confirmed she is probably somewhere between 6 and 8 years old. She is a happy, healthy, pudgy girl. She met some kids and, while she did okay with them, would probably not be adopted to a home with small children due to her propensity to be mouthy when wanting attention and playing roughly. Teenage children would definitely be okay with Betty. She has also met other dogs, and Betty, like people, is particular about who she likes. Her dental is scheduled for the end of June and after her dental and follow up appointment, she will be ready for her new home. If you can’t resist this little face, fill out an application right away!

Initial Bio 5-31-19: Betty is a large, beautiful, lady who was surrendered by her owners. They were not her original owners, so her exact age is unknown but without having seen the vet yet, we are guessing around 8 years old. She is very sweet and so far loves every person she has met. She has not yet been introduced to any children since being in her foster home, but we will try that out this weekend and update her behavior with children.

Betty is adorable, but overweight at 12.5 pounds and needs to lose about 4 pounds. She has started a diet, along with short walks to help her slim down her figure. She also needs to be vaccinated and have a dental. She will have her first vet appointment Friday, June 7th, at which time her dental will be scheduled.

It is apparent that Betty has separation anxiety. Therefore, her ideal home would be someone who is home all day and has lots of time to spend doting on her. She also has extreme storm anxiety and may require medication in the event of severe storms. She gets along fine with her foster dog brother who is 5 lbs, although I have not yet had her around large dogs...yet another event for this coming weekend!

Betty is a great listener...she knows how to sit and come. She walks amazing on a leash and harness and stays right by your side.

If Betty is the perfect fit for you, please fill out an application. She looks forward to finding her new forever home!

I've Been Adopted!

Shiloh
Illinois
Shiloh

Meet Shiloh. Shiloh is a 9-year-old, 6-pound Yorkie being fostered in Beach Park, IL.

THANK YOU TO SHILOH'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Kimberly Bandusky

UPDATE BIO. 05/30/19. This little princess is Shiloh who lives in Beach Park, IL with her foster mommy, daddy, three fur sisters and a fur brother. She is an adorable little 9-year-old, spayed female yorkiepoo who is doing well with her food aggression issues, however she is being fed separately from her fur sisters and fur brother as she wants to run around and check out each bowl because someone might have something better than she has in her bowl. If something falls to the floor, she is the first one there and it is considered hers. She has been in fights with her fur sisters over foster mommy accidentally dropping something on the floor and they all go for it. If something falls to the floor, a stern “NO” will often stop her and allow me to pick it up, otherwise if I simply reach down to pick it up, she will bite. Due to this habit that we are trying to break, I feel that she should not be in a home with any small children who do not understand her aggression that anything that hits the floor is hers. This is a work in progress but we have made strides and she will listen. She is very smart and learns quickly. I feel we’ve earned her trust and we always praise good behavior.

Shiloh is very comfortable in our house with her surroundings, loves to be outdoors and wants to be with her people. We have a fenced yard so she is free to run about without a leash although we have to keep a constant watchful eye on all the fur babies due to coyotes and predatory birds in the area. Because she loves to be outdoors, she really needs a fenced yard with supervision and no means of escape as the saying goes, give her an inch and she will take a mile.

If she is displeased, Shiloh will let you know by barking and it is the same if she wants your attention. She has quite a loud little bark so I don’t know if apartment or condo living would be a good idea as neighbors could complain. Shiloh does not bark excessively but she does let you know if she is displeased, wants something or is demanding attention.

She was formerly only potty pad trained but she will do her business outdoors now as well as use the potty pad indoors.

Shiloh has “floating ribs” that you can feel when you pick her up but this does not seem to cause her any discomfort or pain. The vet said she should be able to live a normal life. Shiloh had hip surgery when she was a baby and she does have some luxating patella issues in her little back legs. I am giving her glucosamine daily which seems to help. She hesitates a second or two at the bottom of the stairs before going up but then she runs right up without any problem. She goes up the stairs to our bed at night and sprawls out wherever she feels the best spot is on the bed.

Shiloh had a dental and is currently up to date on her vaccinations. For reasons listed above I feel that she should live in a home with adults only, no other pets, and preferably not in a condo or apartment as she loves her own yard and a doggie park might not be the best option. I also think she would do best in a home where someone is home with her all or most of the day. She loves walks but still pulls on the leash and wants to lead. Shiloh is a great little girl, stubborn, spoiled, and pampered, but oh so loveable and waiting for her perfect furever home. Please contact her foster mommy at yorkiefostermom04@gmail.com for more information if you think you might have room in your heart for this little doll and be able to provide a loving and caring environment.

Update 4/7/19: Shiloh is an adorable 9 year old, spayed female Yorkiepoo, about 6 pounds, residing in Beach Park, IL with her foster family. She is up to date on vaccinations but does need a dental which I have not scheduled at this time. Although she a very loving and social little lady, we are working on “resource guarding” issues. She is very aggressive with her food and will bite if she feels someone is trying to take her food away. I have been working with her to overcome this food aggression and feel I’ve made some progress but the person(s) who wish to be considered to adopt Shiloh must be willing to continue the training with diligence and patience.

Because of the incidents with food aggression and biting, I feel an adult only home with no other pets would be the best environment for Shiloh as she does show jealousy if she thinks she is being neglected when I give the other dogs attention.

Shiloh loves to be outdoors but pulls hard on the leash, so we are also working on the leash training. She requires a completely secured fenced yard with no means of escape as she will bolt and run away. She is microchipped but she does not know the dangers of traffic, wild animals and such.

Shiloh was completely potty pad trained but is now learning to go outdoors. She is using the potty pad about 1/2 the time and going outdoors the other half.

I will have updates posted on our progress with Shiloh. She is a very sweet and lovable little girl, however we do have some work to do before she is available for adoption.

Maddie

Adorable little Maddie is a 3 year old, terrier mix weighing 10 pounds and is being fostered in Louisville, Kentucky

Updated bio 8/8/2019:

MADDIE is a young and very energetic girl who is looking for lots of love and attention. She is an 11 lb. Yorkie mix with beautiful Tri-color markings. At only 2 years old, she can be all puppy and wants to run and play with toys. Although, this little spitfire is the perfect love bug and companion for an active family, she is very “BIG DOG” reactive. A committed adopter will need to be able to physically control her, as well as, address this problematic behavior. Maddie will encounter other dogs out on walks and at vet appointments, even if she is placed in an “only” dog home. She is going to need a lot of patience and would benefit from counter-conditioning training. She would do best in a home with no other dogs to divert her human’s attention away from her. She does eventually warm up to some smaller dogs in the home. After a week at Foster Mom’s, she has settled into a routine, but still tries to assert herself as the Pack Leader. We are not sure if she is compatible with cats, but she seems to get along with all humans. Maddie loves a good squeaky toy and a game of fetch, but she can get a little rough during play. For this reason, she would not be good in a home with small children. She is not potty trained, as most dogs who find themselves in new situations, struggle with this. She is very smart and already knows several commands. She does not charge an open door and really seems to want to please her human. She does pull when walked on a leash, but we are working on that with her. Maddie was found as a stray whose family never came looking for her, so we will never know her story. She is healthy and up to date on her shots. She is scheduled to be spayed this week and will be available for adoption afterwards. Careful consideration is needed in deciding if you are the perfect companion for Maddie. Due to her behavioral issues, Foster Mom will be picky, as she needs to find a Forever home where she will receive the training, love and patience she deserves the best!

Mandy

Mandy is a 13 year old Yorkie girl, weighing 4.4 pounds and being fostered in Kentucky

THANK YOU TO MANDY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Paul Sherman

Initial Bio 5/26/19: I am 13 years old and am about 4.4 pounds. My foster mommy and daddy call me Mandy, and I love the sound of that name. I was rescued two years ago by this couple. They found me underneath their car with a serious cataract in my eye. I have lost vision in my left eye, and I have a cataract in my right. My vision in that eye is limited. My rescue couple believe I may have been a puppy mill momma as I have some difficulty walking from being kept in a cage. My foster mommy and daddy will be taking me to the dog-tor to find out if I have any other health issues. I like to walk around the house and ignore my fur siblings. I like to give them my squeaky bark and watch them run. If you would like to donate to my care please click on the PayPal button underneath. Stayed tuned for further information on my health:

Bella

Meet precious Bella. She is 3-years-old (estimated) Maltese mix and she weighs 8.5 pounds. She is being fostered in North Carolina

THANK YUO TO BELLA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Irene and Peter Havas

Update 5/26/19

Here’s our beautiful Bella, an approximately two year old female Maltese. She has stolen our hearts and will make a fantastic family dog for a very lucky family. Bella gets along wonderfully with both our Yorkie boys, as well as our four year old daughter. We visited the dogtor last week where Bella got all her vaccines up to date and it was determined that she has an eye condition called entropion. This will require surgery by a specialist in order to be corrected. Bella will also require a dental and spay. Due to upcoming surgeries, Bella will not be immediately available for adoption. Please check back for updates on Bella- she is an extremely smart, sweet and happy little girl who deserves a fantastic home.

Initial Bio 5/9/19 Bella has just arrived in her foster home and is already proving to be a total lovebug! She is sweet, playful and loving. She is also house-trained which is a big plus. Bella just had her first visit to the Dogtor and is healthy but she does have an eye condition that will require special surgery. She also needs to be spayed so Bella will be in our care for a few weeks getting these needs addressed. Bella loves all living beings and will be happiest in a home with another doggy friends to be BFFs with. She loves children too so she’d be a good family dog. Stay tuned as we get to know her better and help us with the cost of her care by clicking the PayPal button below and thank you!

Brooklyn True

PENDING ADOPTION !! Meet Brooklyn True. She in an adorable 6-year-old little girl that weighs 9 pounds. She is being fostered outside of Nashville, TN

Initial bio 7-18-19

Brooklyn’s owner recently passed away and our local shelter contacted United Yorkie Rescue to help find her a forever home. As you can see she is absolutely gorgeous. She does good with other dogs and definitely loves her people. Her previous owners were retired, so she would love a home where she can get all the attention she deserved and lots of cuddle time. Brooklyn is VERY laid back and will snuggle up beside you all day if she could. However, when you come through the door she jumps and dances until you pick her up so she can shower you with kisses. She was previously potty pad trained, but we are doing good with going outside to potty in a fenced in yard. She would probably do better in a home with no small children. Brooklyn got a wonderful vet check that included a much needed dental, all bloodwork results came back perfect, update on all her vaccinations & microchip. If you are interested in adopting Brooklyn please go to our website at Unitedyorkierescue.org or if you have any additional questions you can contact Leslie@Unitedyorkierescue.org

He also was able to get his vaccinations and start on preventative Heart and Flea medications.

Drum Roll please after his dental he will be ready to find his forever family.... He is very sweet loves to be with his human and loves to snuggle next to you in bed....

06/27/19

Chance here wanted to let everyone know how I have been doing. I am feeling better and healing nicely. Everyone has been so kind and your donations and prayers have been appreciated... I was left for dead and UYR and all my fans became my hero's I haven't been sick at all since I got home to my FM house. She is taking great care of me... I will day the cone in a pain but FM mom says a very kind lady sent me the inflated cone she put on me last night... and wow its sooo much better than that plastic one I was wearing I can eat and drink without any trouble now. FM mom says 1 more week and I should be able to take off the cone all together. Maybe then she will let me play too... she is still making me stay calm and not run around playing with the other doggies here. But she does carry me around and give me lots of love and kisses so that makes it ok.... I love all the attention I am getting. Don't tell FM but I just might be spoiled a little bit. Please continue to pray for my recovery. Any donations to UYR to help me or any other dog in need is appreciated I don't know what I would have done without UYR saving me.

06/22/19

Update from Dogtor today... Chance was sick overnight he has been throwing up... they feel this is due to the pressure in his stomach has changed due to moving things back where they belong so it is causing him to be nauseated and vomit. They have been giving him anti-nausea medication. They are hoping this will improve throughout the day. With this in mind the dogtor and foster mom have decided that it would be in his best interest to spend another night in the hospital and we will reevaluate tomorrow. Again we can not thank you enough. Thank you to everyone who has prayed for him and made donations towards his medical bills... your continued support thru prayers and donations are appreciated.

06/21/19

Update just got a call from Dogtor about Chance he made it thru surgery she said he had 2 significant hernia's to be repaired. His Diaphram was torn in a Y shape and his liver, stomach, spleen, and intestines where pushed thru she also noted his spleen was fractured from the accident. All has now been repaired and everything back where it belongs. This was a major surgery for this sweet boy... he will need to stay at least 2 days in the hospital to make sure that everything is functioning properly and that he is out of the woods and on his way to a full recovery. She said he will be very sore from this for awhile he has lots of sutures inside. Dogtor said she doesn't anticipate any issues. We are very grateful for this news. Thank you to everyone who has prayed for him and made donations towards his medical bills... your continued support thru prayers and donations are appreciated.

6/20/19

Chance went for his PreOp appointment today his dogtor says he has another hernia in his small intestines as well has the one that has pushed thru the diaphragm also his liver is pushing thru the diaphragm so he may lose a portion of his liver. Foster mom was tearful as she left him this afternoon but knows he is in good hands and they are going to get this sweet boy all put back together. This is a major surgery and costly he will have to stay for a day or two in the hospital before foster mom can bring him home but we will keep everyone updated. Chance wants to thank everyone for your prayers and donations please keep them coming.

6/19/19

Chance has been a busy boy this week he has been to Dogtor for follow up and additional testing. He is on two strong antibiotics for the infection and they are giving him a mild pain pill but due to injuries he can not be sedated or given a very strong pain medication. Despite his injuries he is still very loving and wants to be with you at all times which is great since his dogtors recommendation is that he remain very calm. Foster mom is keeping him very close to her and monitoring him like a hawk. He will go Thursday to Blue Pearl for is Pre-Op appointment he will stay overnight and his surgery will be done Friday morning. His dogtor and foster mom are feeling positive that everything will turn out fine. Please keep Chance and foster mom in your prayers. Also Chance, Foster mom and UYR want to Thank everyone for their donations. Chance would appreciate any additional donations as he has been told this surgery will be very expensive... but he is so grateful for the everyone’s help in making him all better.

6/15/19: This sweet boy has just arrived in UYR and he has not had a good week at all. We have named him “Chance” in the hopes that with your help, some good luck and lots of love he might actually have one. On Thursday, Chance was hit by a car and according to witnesses at the scene the driver did not even try to swerve or stop to help him. A witness picked Chance up out of the ditch where his little body was thrown and took him to animal control. He received a basic medical evaluation there but they believed he had only soft tissue injuries and lots of bruising and would likely recover on his own. After his stray hold was up, UYR was contacted to help and they took Chance straight to a Veterinarian where a more extensive workup and X-rays were performed. Thank goodness this was done because Chance is worse off than initially believed and he has suffered substantial internal injuries. X-rays show that Chance has a diaphragmatic hernia which means that the impact of being hit by a car tore his diaphragm and created a hole which has caused his intestines to be displaced into his chest cavity. This means his lungs are being crowded and are not able to expand fully. It also means that Chance's intestines are in danger of becoming strangulated and if this happens he could lose part of them. In any event, Chance needs major surgery to repair his injuries as soon as possible so we are putting out a plea to our fans and supporters for help. We are trying to manage Chance medically with supportive care through the weekend so that he can have his corrective surgery early next week under the best of circumstances but if he takes a turn for the worse or shows any signs of breathing difficulty or intestinal blockage he will have to have immediate emergency surgery. At present he is under close observation and that will continue through the weekend. If you are able to help this sweet boy with a donation towards his care then we would be so very grateful.

Duchess

Duchess is a estimated 5-year-old, 10-pound Silky Terrier girl being fostered near Clarksville, TN.

UPDATE 08/05/2019

Duchess is such a sweet girl. She is really starting to come out of her shell. She loves to be outside and lay in the sun. She gets along very well with her foster bothers and sister. She is slow to trust humans but with time is beginning to trust and want love and petting from her human. She will sleep in the bed with you sometimes but prefers to have her own bed on the floor beside you. Duchess will do well in a family home with other dogs or on her own. If you think you have the time and patience to give her to love she needs and time to get to know you. Please complete and application for you.... She is ready to find her forever home.

Update 06/27/2019

What a difference a week makes! Duchess has really come out of her shell over the past few days, claiming a doggie bed for her own, tussling with her foster brother and trying out ALL the toys. She is even showing more interest in what lies beyond the door, not just venturing onto the patio on her own but also crossing over the threshold when her foster brothers are headed out to potty. Her FM looks for her to be willing to go for a real walk in the next few days!

Duchess has also found her voice. She is the first to recognize that FM is about to come through the door after work and sounds the alert. She now joins the chorus of cheerful barking and comes running to be petted as her tail wags. Her confidence in herself is growing and her trust in FM and her new surroundings is growing, too. Duchess joins her foster brothers as FM's morning alarm signaling it's time for the boys to go outside as well.

She has learned to take treats from FM either from the palm or fingertips. Her whole back end wags in delight when the treats appear. Duchess' future is bright and she is going to be great companion in her forever home.

Update 6/19/19

Regal yet unsure, Duchess survived years in an Ohio Amish puppy mill and was surrendered having had as many litters of pups allowed under Ohio law. The vet has given this beautiful pup a clean bill of health; she has been spayed, and her teeth are shiny and clean.

She warms up very slowly but demonstrates confidence and loyalty once she does. Initially, she may avert her eyes, allowing humans to approach even as she fearful of their intent. Over the passing days, she has come to relish having her chin and head rubbed. The occasional side pet is welcome, too. Duchess will now approach her foster mom for affection and back off to wait for petting.

She knows that being picked up by humans is virtually inevitable, but she has come to understand that she is no longer in danger when she is picked up. She does the cutest pretend walk with her feet when being carried under her Foster Mom’s arm. Duchess is now making direct eye contact with deep dark eyes full of love and gratitude, and her sweet disposition suggests she will make an excellent companion for her forever mom or dad.

Duchess has been slow to interact with her foster brothers, but she has shown no signs of aggression. She eventually engaged in playful behavior with the larger of the two, and she now makes sure that she knows where they are and will follow them from room to room. Should the smaller brother tussle with the larger, Duchess often steps in the middle without a sound as if she sees herself protecting the smaller. Even then she is not aggressive as she nudges her brothers to a different activity. Her kind nurturing soul shows through in so many ways.

Duchess has discovered chewy bones, and she loves them! Her favorite activity seems to be sitting at foster mom’s feet with a chew bone or sleeping. She has not mastered the ramp or steps to get onto the couch or bed, but she will put her paws on the side to let FM know that she would like to be petted. While she isn’t a lap dog yet, she is comfortable on the couch or bed next to FM when she has some assistance to get there although she chooses to sleep on the carpeted floor.

As with most puppy mill survivors, Duchess has not been house-trained. Her potty behavior is consistent and interesting. She made short-order of disposable diapers and quickly figured out how to undo the Velcro of reusable diapers. Smart girl! She prefers to pee pee and poo in the kitchen near the door and virtually in the same spot every time. It’s as if she knows the process of going to the bathroom outside, but she is terribly afraid to go outdoors. She does cower after going to the bathroom. Also – when her foster brothers go out to take care of business, she will pee or poo while they are out with FM and is quite proud of herself when we return, waiting with wagging tail for the treats she knows the boys and she will receive.

She is quite comfortable going out onto the patio, and she has taken some steps in the corridor in our apartment building. Just yesterday (6/17) she took her first voluntary steps when placed on the sidewalk outside. As long as she is aware FM is holding the leash, she stands perfectly still. When the leash is on the ground or loose, she will move about to sniff, never wandering very far. Patience will be required to work with Duchess to master appropriate bathroom habits.

She will do well in a quieter home where she can be a focal point of attention and affection. She is fine with dogs her size or smaller who are not overly active or hyper. Older children may be fine, but I would not recommend young children as she is skittish and needs to feel safe to be able to relax. A confined space to explore outside may well assist in socializing her into her new normal, but above all she needs her human to love her unconditionally, recognizing that her challenges are not by her choice or fault. She has been abused and used, separated from numerous puppies, and discarded when she was no longer a profit-maker. Love is the balm that will heal this precious creature’s emotional wounds, and she is bound to be loyal and loving to the person who shows her the way home.

Duchess came from a puppy mill in OH another shelter reached out to us to help her out. Stay tuned as we get to know her better

Lucy

Lucy is an 10 year old Yorkie girl who weighs 11lbs and is being fostered near Ashland City,TN.

Initial Bio 7-13-19: Lucy was surrendered by her family who absolutely adored her due to circumstances beyond their control. They reached out to United Yorkie Rescue hoping that Lucy can find a home to love and care for her as much as they have for the rest of her life. Lucy is an active senior girl who loves people and loves to play with toys . She enjoys running around in the yard or to go walking on a leash with her person. Lucy is housetrained as long as she is taken out on a regular schedule. She LOVES her CRATE but needs to be covered up while in it because she will guard it . She sleeps in her crate. Lucy does ok with other small dogs but I think she would rather be the center of attention. She takes medication for her thyroid and is on a special food. Royal Canine low fat dry food and can soft food to mix a bit with the dry. She enjoys carrots and lean treats in the afternoon. Lucy rides well in a car but needs to be covered in her crate to feel secure. When going to the vet or to be groomed she takes medication to help with her anxiety. Stay tuned as we get to know more about Lucy and she has a visit with the Dogtor for a checkup this week.

Scooby (Yoshi)

Meet Scooby who is part of a bonded pair (Yoshi). He is 4 years old, weighs 14 pounds and is being fostered in Nashville, TN.

THANK YOU TO SCOOBY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Salvatore Imburgia

August 12, 2019

Let’s give this beautiful pair of brothers a loving and fun home. They are ready to give love and hugs. Scooby who is part of a bonded pair (Yoshi), is 4 years old and is being fostered in Murfreesboro, TN.

Scooby continues to adapt very well to his foster home and brother. On August 1st he turned 4 years old and celebrated with his brother Yoshi, foster brother and family. Scooby weighs 18 pounds, is shy, not a friend of car drives, loves to give kisses and hugs and has more of a yorkie look when compared to his brother Yoshi. Scooby has been under antibiotic ointment treatment for a left “cherry eye” since July 1st and on July 30th he had a follow-up appointment with the veterinarian. The veterinarian has decided to change the treatment to antibiotic eye drops and re-evaluate in 30 days. Scooby is eating well and it seems that he was “pee pad “trained and we have been working on transitioning to have it done outside in the yard and we are making progress. Scooby is healthy, microchipped, up to date on his vaccinations and is on preventive heartworm/fleas/ticks’ treatment.

Beautiful Bella

Bella says Hoppy Easter!
Tennessee
TN Bella

TN BELLA IS A 9 year old, 7- POUND YORKIE GIRL BEING FOSTERED NEAR ASHLAND CITY, TN.

Updated Bio: Bella is a sweetheart who is up to date on all care . She was adopted out in April of this year after being surrendered by her owner before. Turns out that Bella has potty issues. She needs to go to a home without carpet. The family that adopted her through the rescue had carpet in all rooms except the kitchen. Bella doesn’t seem to distinguish carpet from wee wee pads. That is Bella’s only issue is potty training. I think with the right fit and lots of patience she will learn how to go potty more outside ( she loves outside) or on wee wee pads more. A stay at home mom or dad would be ideal for her to help her with potty training issues. Bella is not hyper, she gets along well with other dogs and adores her person. Bella will not be adopted to anyone who does not understand her potty issues. Her next home will be the one that she will live in for the rest of her life.

Initial Bio- 4-11-19: Bella was surrendered by her owner who loved her very much but due to busy schedules could not longer give her the attention she needs. Bella is an absolute sweetheart. She is easy going and loves to be petted. She is also wee pad trained, but also goes potty outside. Bella needs a fenced in yard so she can go out and lay in the sun, she truly enjoys that. Bella rides well in a car and gets along great with other dogs. She is up to date on all her shots, microchipped and has been spayed. She just had a dental. Poor baby has only 7 teeth left but that’s ok she feels so much better and can still eat up yummy food. Her Dogtor says she needs to loose about 2-3 pounds, Bella is on a diet for the time being. She also needs lots of exercise so walks around the neighborhood is a plus for her. Bella would do great as an only dog or with others. She would love a companion who is home most of the time. If your the right one for her please email Foster mom for more information.


To date we've spent $710.66 on TN Bella's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Tanner Roux

Meet little Tanner Roux. He is an adorable 5 pound, approximate 10 year old boy who is being fostered in Clarksville, TN area

THANK YOU TO TANNER ROUX'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Barbara Burgess

July 27,2019

Tanner is doing wonderful !! He absolutely loves his new food and would eat all the time if you let him. Is getting the routine of going potty outside. We think he might have some hearing loss but is just the sweetest, most loving little boy ever and just looking for the perfect retirement home.

June 24, 2019 This little guy weighs almost 5 pounds, is approximately 10 – 11 years old and is absolutely gorgeous with his blond hair !

We have had him 2 weeks now and he is just the most precious thing ever. He loves to follow you around and is ALWAYS available for kisses. As you can see he is very quiet and very calm. We think he may have some hearing loss, but that does not stop him all – We did a complete bloodwork panel on him and though it does not show levels of kidney disease, the vet did recommend for his age to be on a low fat diet. He no teeth but absolutely loves to eat !! He loves to go for call rides and wants to watch out the window for all the cars to go by. He does wonderful with his potty habits, will go outside to potty, but has an accident or two in the house. He will sleep in his bed right beside you or snuggled up in bed with you as long as he is close. He would probably do better in a home with no young children due to his size. If you are interested in adopting Tanner please click on the button below to complete an application, or if you have any additional questions you can contact Leslie@unitedyorkierescue.org.

Let’s give this beautiful pair of brothers a loving and fun home. They are ready to give only love and hugs. Yoshi who is part of a bonded pair (Scooby). He is 4 years old and is being fostered in Murfreesboro, TN.

Yoshi continues to adapt very well to his foster home and brother. On August 1st he turned 4 years old and celebrated with his brother Scooby, foster brother and family. Yoshi weighs 16 pounds, eating well, very outgoing, loves car rides, loves to give kisses and hugs and has more of a Shih Tzu look when compared to his brother Scooby. It seems that he was “pee pad “trained and we have been working on transitioning to have it done outside and we are making progress. Yoshi is healthy, microchipped, up to date on his vaccinations and is on preventive heartworm/fleas/ticks’ treatment. It is very important to know that Yoshi and Scooby are bonded and very close to each other, so those interested will need to adopt them as a pair.

Addie
Texas
Addie TX

Meet Addie, our newest little 2-3 year old Yorkie cutie weighing 13 pounds. She is being fostered near Carthage, TX.

THANK YOU TO ADDIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sue Robinson, Judith Dossett Monette, Nhung T Le, Tracie Robertson, Heather Ozuma Hohn, Jill Landers, Deb Stokes, Sharon Medina, Kay Marzoni-Miller, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Paul Clark, Mary Whitaker

UPDATE BIO. 04/16/19. Addie continues to do well on her seizure medication, and is more accepting of her foster brothers and sisters. She is such a sweetheart. She needs a quiet home where she can just be herself. She needs an understanding and patient heart full of love for fur babies.

Can you take care of me and love me like I deserve to be loved and cared for???

UPDATE BIO. 03/06/19. Miss Addie is doing very well. She is almost completely potty trained. Just a few oops here and there that we are working on. Addie has begun coming out of her shell and showing her personality a little more. Such a loving and sweet girl.

She is looking for a patient owner that will work with her, love her and understand her. She says, "Will you love me and allow me to love you? Foster Mom and Dad are cool and all, but I am looking to get settled into my forever home."

If you have questions, please contact my foster mom at uyrfostermom@yahoo.com

UPDATED BIO. 02/13/19. Addie came to us last week after being on the streets for an undefined amount of time, and she is absolutely adorable. Although she sounds a little vicious when playing, she is a doll baby. Now that she is settled in and on her seizure medication, her seizures are subsiding. Though she must stay on medication the rest of her life, the seizures are under control now.

Miss Addie is looking for a forever home full of love and understanding. Addie is a sweet baby, and would do well in a home with older children, either with tolerant dogs or being an only child. For more questions, contact foster mom at uyrfostermom@yahoo.com.

Initial Bio 1/27/19: This little girl was seen along the side of the road in Corpus Christi for weeks until a real lover of animals stopped and picked her up. She reached out to UYR due to the dire needs of the little lady. She had two injured legs with signs of seizure activity and was obviously unkempt. Guesses were made if she was thrown hit by a car, run over...we will never know.

Many members worked together to get Addie to her intended foster mom in Fort Worth, TX. Her first vet visit was to an orthopedic vet. He took x--rays, blood and really looked her over. It seems her front leg was crushed in many places and was healed-all wrong. X-rays indicated these injuries occurred long ago. She has learned to walk with her leg at an angle and her pad is worn in the wrong place. It really doesn't bother her at all. She pulls me like a sled. She was heart-worm negative, but has 3 kinds of intestinal worms. She hates the medication, but in 10 days it should be but a memory..

Now for the seizures. I understand she had tremors all the time when stressed, then would have a small seizure a few times a day. Since starting her medications yesterday, I have seen no tremors or seizures! Her forever parents should be made aware she will need medication three times a day for life.

After having to scrounge for food for weeks, she shows a lot of food guarding. I am sure once she trusts me to bring food when needed, she will stop this behavior.

You would think this little one would be complaining all the time but she only tells you when she needs to go out.

She needs to be stabilized on her medications and she must be continue to observed by foster mom and vet to determine if a any treatment will benefit her leg. She may need to be spayed before she is ready to meet her forever parents - the vet not sure after the initial observation.


To date we've spent $683.50 on Addie TX's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $115.00 in donations.

Auggie
Texas
Auggie TX

Meet the handsome Auggie. Auggie is a 8-year-old, 10 lb. yorkie boy being fostered in TX.

INITIAL BIO. 08/18/19. Precious little 8yr old, 10 lb Auggie, came to us because a very loving daddy surrendered Auggie to his lifetime vet. You see, Auggie got extremely ill with un-diagnosed diabetes while his dad was traveling. This led to severe pancreatitis, as well.

Daddy visited him everyday and took care of his medical needs, but because his daddy travels, it makes it impossible for him to care for Auggie's diabetes; therefore, he surrendered him in the hopes that someone would care for him and love him as much as he did. Thats where United Yorkie Rescue was asked to take him in.

This week Auggie has been recouping, and he is doing amazing!! He ate all of his dinner tonight so we are officially back to liking food, which means we are well!! Auggie is also on only 1 unit of insulin am and pm, so he is very manageable and his meds are very, very inexpensive and easy to administer. We will have a follow up visit with Dr Sam, and then Auggie will be ready for his furever. T

his little guy is extremely smart, very very loving and loves his stuffed toys. He will be an amazing addition to your home! If you are looking for kisses, cuddles, and an adorable smart and sweet little man...please fill out an application at www.uyr.us or contact foster mom at nicole.acos@gmail.com.


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

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.

Thank you UYR family!!!

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.

Cooper
Texas
Cooper TX

Cooper is a 12 year old, 13 pound Yorkie boy who is being fostered in Fort Worth, TX with his best buddy, Joe Bradley.

UPDATE BIO: 8/02/19. Just look at these precious faces. Joe Bradley and Cooper are still looking for their forever home. They have been together since they were 10 weeks old and are now 12 years old. They are so much fun!

Cooper waddles around the house, but has lost a little weight. Joe Bradley is just happy to be in your lap. Cooper has the cutest growl when he wants your attention, and Joe Bradley will do a small bark when he is needing to go outside. They really do keep an eye on each other and just love one another.

If you are wanting cuddles galore and easy going pups, these are your guys. If you are interested in adopting this bonded pair, just follow the links to complete an application.

Initial Bio 6-9-19: Cooper is half of a bonded pair with Joe Bradley. He is 12 years old and just oh so sweet. He and his brother, Joe Bradley, have been together since they were 10 weeks old. Sadly, their loving owner passed away and his family has decided to put them with UYR so we could find a loving home where they can live out the rest of their lives. His foster mom is still getting to know Copper and he is overweight but foster mom is on top of his diet and has reduced his calorie intake. Even at 12 years, this little Yorkie mix loves, loves to play and his little growl is just so cute when he plays. He has been to the vet and only lost a couple of teeth but other than that, his health is great. Cooper will go to the groomer in the next few days and new pictures are coming. If you want to give these brothers a loving home, please fill out an application at www.unitedyorkierescue.org. Stay tuned for more updates as we get to know him better.

8/9/19: Precious little 6 lb medical Enana has been in rescue now for one month today. Enana came to us from California after spending months at the vet with shaking, vomiting, sometimes even becoming ataxic, then ultimately presenting with elevated bile acids indicating possible liver shunt. Upon her arrival we made appointments for her nuclear scintigraphy and visit with the surgeon. Her scintingraphy was performed along with a specialized ultrasound. These tests indicated that there was not a visible shunt, however, there were issues noted within the gall bladder, the spleen was slightly enlarged and with reference to the liver they cannot rule out microvascular dysplasia or a hepatopathy/hepatitis. Issues within the liver can not be ruled out without the further testing by biopsy of the liver as well as additional biopsies of the GI. We need to get answers so we can ultimately give this little 6lb nugget her life back. Testing has already been expensive at $3k and additional testing will be another $3.5k. This pricing again is for running diagnostics and biopsies and not including any surgical intervention if that may be needed once answers are found. Please remember that we have quite a few medical babies in our care and we are so blessed with donations that you may be able to extend to her care. Without you, this is not possible and we are just beyond blessed by our donors!! Once this baby is well we will address her future, but please help us help Enana (pronounced E-nana) at www.uyr.us. Much love to you all!!!

INITIAL BIO. 7/14/2019: Sweet little 7yr old, 6 lb Enana is flying here tomorrow from California. Enana has spent the majority of the past two months under veterinary care due to a multitude of issues. Finally, a bile acid test was performed which proved high bile acids and is indicative of an issue with the liver and a possible liver shunt.

This sweet angel will be seeing a specialist for testing Thursday, and then we visit with the surgeon the following Tuesday. If her results indicate an operable shunt(s), she will have immediate surgery on that date. We ask that you please keep Enana in your prayers as we go through this process. The imaging and upcoming surgery will be incredibly expensive for our rescue. We also ask you to also please donate to her care. This angel is just so adorably sweet and full of love to give, let's give her that life! Due to the possibility of surgery, Enana is not ready for adoption for at this time.


To date we've spent $2728.66 on Enana's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1670.00 in donations.

Jojo
Texas
JoJo

Meet the handsome JoJo. JoJo is a 4-year-old, 6 lb. yorkie being fostered TX.

INITIAL BIO. )8/17/19. Hello everyone! My name is Jojo, and I am new to the United Yorkie Rescue. I am a 4 year old little boy, who is neutered and a 6.5 lb bundle of love. My mom recently surrendered me to the UYR due to her health issues and not being able to give me the best life possible. She misses me dearly and calls almost every night to check on how I'm doing. Turning me over was super hard for her, but the best decision she could make for my future.

I was quickly placed into a foster home with one other foster Yorkie named Jersey, and a little jalapeno of a chihuahua, named Pepe. I get along with them both and quickly accepted foster mom and dad as my protector and care takers. I got to visit the dogtor yesterday for an initial check up and to get my heartworm protection. I heard them talking about something called a "dental". Not sure what that means, but I think foster mom scheduled it for me real soon. Other than that, I am perfectly healthy, puppy pad trained, know a few tricks (with treat motivation), and the most adorable love bug you will meet.

I am looking for a home with no children (due to my size) where I can be loved for the rest of my life. I have plenty of love to give in return and really enjoy being included in everything you do. I will follow you around, sit on your lap, fall backwards in your arms for a belly rub, and intently stare into your eyes to show you how much I love you. I get along well with other dogs and people. It may take me a couple days to warm up to someone new, but once comfortable, I will show how sweet and lovable I truly am.

If you are looking for a special relationship with a little furry companion, please go to unitedyorkierescue.org and fill out an application to adopt me. Or you can email my foster mom and dad directly at uyryorkielovetx@yahoo.com.

Anxiously waiting,

Jojo

Kacie

Kacie

Meet Kacie, a sweet 15 year old, 8 pound Yorkie girl being fostered in Gainesville, TX.

THANK YOU TO KACIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Marty Mullendore, Paul Sherman

UPDATE BIO. 08/04/19. Can you love me furever, be my mommy or daddy, and let me be your baby girl?? United Yorkie Rescue Kacie would truly say that. She is just a precious 7lb, 15yr old princess who looks just like a puppy and just wants someones lap and bed.

She is the most amazing foster I have ever had! No one would ever believe this littler girl is a senior. She is full of life and just incredibly healthy. Kacie has lost most of her vision due to KCS, dry eye, but she amazes me in her navigation skills of the home and yard. She it's also the first one in the kitchen for dinner and loves to be right there while you're cooking, too. When she's tired of spending alone time, she will give a soft bark to alert you that she is ready for you to pick her up for couch cuddles or bedtime! I have rigged leashes to attach to her harness so she can chill with the pack without the fear of her falling. As I said, she is just amazing. Kacie is also potty trained and will stand at the back door or use potty pads. Now trust me, we do have our accidents, but I'm certain that would be my fault.

This baby is just absolutely adorable and whoever chooses to give her a furever home will be blessed beyond measure. Please feel free to contact me at yorkiefostertx@gmail.com and fill out an application at www.uyr.us. She is waiting for you!!

6/23/19: Meet KACIE and look at this precious face! Kacie just never ceases to amaze me. At 15yrs old, yes I said 15, this princess is blind but she is very much in touch with everything around her. She is the first one to hit the kitchen when its dinner time and she absolutely loves to go outside and be in the yard. This amazing little girl had sight, but slowly lost the tissue in her left eye due to KCS (dry eye) and had an enucleation of that eye. She has progressively lost the sight in her right eye and is on eye meds to manage the KCS. Kacie gets along beautifully with all the animals and her humans. She is loving the hugs she gets and now gives the sweetest kisses too. She is truly housetrained as she does ask to go out, however, we do have occasional accidents which I cannot blame on this angel. Other than her sight loss, she is as healthy as can be and just adorable! If you feel you have the love and home to offer this sweet angel, please fill out an application on our website at www.uyr.us or email me at yorkiefostertx@gmail.com.

INITIAL BIO. 6-12-19. Precious 15yr old, 8lb Kacie was just so loved by her owners! We have an adopter chosen for this sweet angel, already.

Kacie is totally blind and we wanted to bring her in and place her directly into a home she could relearn. She will have a dental and be home sweet home. Please adopt and donate at www.uyr.us!!!

Little Bit
Texas
Little Bit TX

Meet precious Lil Bit.. He is handsome 12- yr-old boy who weighs 5 lbs. He is being fostered in TX.

THANK YOU TO LITTLE BIT'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Laura Bentley, Holly Keller, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Teresa Beament

4/5/19: Lil Bit was rechecked and his blood values are still off; in addition he has an infection brewing somewhere. He is starting antibiotics and we're are adding iron to his food. Lil Bit has a great appetite and has been on puppy food but despite that he lost a few ounces. He has been having some dry heaving spells and a lil spit up the past two days. We are adding cerenia for this. The vet feels it may be his teeth as they are just awful, but he does have the testicle tumors as well. We will wait another week or two before we try again for this surgery. In the meantime, we are adding 2 more feedings to see if this helps with his weight loss.

Initial Bio. 03/27/19. Sweetness is all I can say about this tiny nugget! Lil Bit is one of three owner surrenders. He is a 12 year, 5lb adorable little Yorkie. He was quickly surrendered at a nearby shelter after his female owner passed. But that's ok, after seeing the neglect of the 3 surrendered, United Yorkie Rescue was definitely needed for their care.

Lil Bit has testicle tumors which he will have removed while completing his neuter. He is also in dire need of a dental. He is currently getting some TLC and good groceries to prepare him for his upcoming surgery. His blood work is actually very good. Lil Bit also has arthritis that has settled in his spine but it doesn't stop this baby from trying to keep up...especially if he knows there is something brewing in the kitchen!!

After we complete his vetting this baby will need a furever home. His purfect home would be one that is maybe a retired couple or someone who does not have chilldren, due to his age and size. He is just adorable and loves nothing more than to cuddle up or cuddle into a fluffy bed and let's not forget to eat LOL. If you feel you have the purfect home for Lil Bit please fill out an application or email foster mom at yorkiefostertx@gmail.com.

Mickey
Texas
Mickey

Mickey is a healthy, sweet 3 year old, 14 pound Yorkie mix being fostered in Fort Worth, TX. ADOPTION PENDING

Initial Bio 7/20/19: This is Mickey. Isn’t he beautiful and he is just a cuddle love bug who wants to play and chase toys and give you sloppy kisses. Mickey had a rough beginning. He was found tied up next to a dumpster. A local animal shelter picked him up and after his hold time expired, one of UYR’s loving volunteers asked that we take this baby into rescue – how could we say no to this face!!??? We do not know his exact age but would estimate about 3 years old. The first day foster mom had him, he began to cough uncontrollably in the wee hours of the morning. Foster mom took him to the vet the next day and he was diagnosed with Bordetella or kennel cough. He is on antibiotics and medicine for his cough and made a turn for the better overnight. He is heartworm negative and will be neutered and chipped in the next few days. His foster mom does not understand why he was tied up next to a dumpster because he is absolutely precious, gentle, and fun. He loves to lay his head on foster mom’s shoulder and at the same time, antagonize other members of the pack in his young, playful manner. Foster mom and the pack are working with Mickey on his indoor manners and etiquette (i.e. eating out of everyone’s food bowls at meal time), including potty training. Foster mom is also working to put a few pounds on him. This young boy would be good in a home with older children or just a couple wanting to give him a lot of love. Foster mom will not let him go into a home where the family wants to crate him during the day. This guy was in a kennel for 4 days and who knows what before that. He needs to be free to play and love his family. If you think you have enough love for this precious boy, please fill out an application at www.unitedyorkierescue.org.


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

THANK YOU TO PEPPER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

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.

THANK YOU TO LILY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Mary Whitaker, Sandy Pagnotta, Sylvia Stapleton, Erik Ebert, Sasha Aaronson, Carol Baker

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 $998.85 on Lily WV's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $300.00 in donations.

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 $1609.57 on Merry's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1175.00 in donations.

Meet Loki, an 11 year old 5 pound male being fostered in Madison, WI.

THANK YOU TO LOKI'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Mark Maddox, Kate Young, Angela Horrighs, Becky Lansing, Maureen Jackson, Katalin Nagy-Takio, Kate Young, Carol Nelson, Cindy Foster, Jessica Lundquist, Beth Tessman

THANK YOU TO LOKI'S FACEBOOK DONORS!

Karry Rogers, Christine Dwyer, Isabel Escobar, Mary Fendrich, Melanie Walters, Jill Landers, Janet Davidson, Mary Munsell Abroe, Chris Ahern, Jay Munsell, Suzanne Harro, Christine Flaherty, Jane Weese, Anne Hicks, Jean DeVegter, Dianne Parker, Barbara Burgess

Bio update 7/19/2019: Loki went to the vet yesterday for a weight and condition check. When he came to UYR, he scored 3/9 - which kept him from being put up for adoption. His condition has not improved enough for him to be considered for adoption right now. We will go back in 2 weeks for another recheck. Hopefully he will continue to eat and gain weight!

Update 7/5/19: Loki has really improved! What a difference time makes! Loki is gaining weight. He is still a very picky eater, but we are finding things he will eat. He loves yogurt, sweet potatoes, cottage cheese and eggs along with food that I’ve been making for him. Loki’s night terrors have stopped. He no longer wakes up shaking and looking around remembering things that happened to him. Loki is quite a snuggler now! He wants to be with his person as much as possible. Even with everything that has happened to him, he remains a very sweet dog. Loki will be going back to the vet next week to have a check up to see how much weight he has put on and see whether or not he will be cleared to be adopted out. Thank you for caring about Loki and all the contributions and well wishes that have been sent for him.

UPDATE BIO. 06/23/19. Loki is now home and eating and drinking on his own regularly. He really needed the extra time at the vet getting fluids and some ‘round the clock’ care. Right now we really believe that Loki has turned a corner! Because of his condition, Loki will not be adopted out until he is medically ready. He needs to gain almost 1 pound, in addition to having the area on his shoulder where the ruptured cyst to improve.

Loki is struggling with what I call “night terrors”. He will jerk awake from a good sleep and “scream” as he looks around where he is. I think he must have had some pretty scary nights on his own and still doesn’t always remember he is safe now. Loki continues to be very sweet, even with everything he has been through. He wants nothing more than to be with his person all the time. Thank you for the contributions toward his care. This wonderful little senior deserves to be spoiled full time

Initial Bio 6-19-19: Day 1: UYR got an urgent call from the local Humane Society about a small yorkie male who was in desperate need of rescue. He went from the shelter directly to the vet where he was assessed. We learned that he is severely underweight (he was a condition grade 3/9), has skin and hair problems, an infection in his ear, cataracts, moderate matting of his coat, grossly overgrown nails, and a severely infected mouth and is deaf. In addition to these issues, Loki came in with a 1.5 x 1.5 inch open infected area on his left shoulder. It was also discovered that he had a severe bruise on his left front leg.

Loki was found running down a country road and was picked up by local law enforcement who delivered him to the Humane Society. It was suspected that he would not have lived much longer without help. The area he was in is known for frequent sightings of coyote. We are so thankful that he was able to look for help before something bad happened.

When we got back from the vet, Loki was given a bath and had the matts cut out. The water was almost black! We spent some time in the back yard where he followed me everywhere! He is such a sweet loving little guy. During the night, he kept waking up crying every hour or so. I reassured him each time that I was still there.

Day 2: Today was a big day for Loki. He was first for surgery. They monitored his heart rate and rhythm and oxygen level to ensure he was tolerating being under anesthesia. They took x-rays and discovered that his mouth was worse than they originally thought. Loki had 18 teeth pulled due to the severe infection that was there. He was left with only a few teeth. They gave him a lot of pain meds to help him with the pain. They were also able to remove the ruptured cyst and stitch it closed. He was pretty outof it when I picked him up late in the day.

Day 3: Loki did not move much during the night. He has not had anything to eat or drink since his first day here. I called the vet because I had concerns about dehydration and his struggle with waking up. It was decided that Loki needed to go back to the vet to be given fluids and a tube to get some nourishment into him. They are watching him to ensure he begins to turn the corner. Loki will be picked up later today. The medical bills for Loki are already significant. If you are able to help this little survivor, that would be much appreciated. He is such a sweet little boy who has been through so much already. Thank you!

Sydney
Wisconsin
Sydney

Meet Sydney, an 11 year old 6 pound female Yorkie being fostered in Madison, WI.

7/19/19 Bio Update: Sydney has had a little set back. The main pad on her right front foot has split. We are headed to the vet today to make sure we are doing everything possible to help her heal and keep the infection away. Even in spite of that, she continues to be a snuggly little girl. She still does not like vacuum cleaners but does settle down after about 20 seconds on her own. Sydney LOVES food. She would not be a good candidate for free feeding as she would eat everything very quickly!

07/06/19. BIO UPDATE. Sydney has been absolutely wonderful! She is such a sweetheart! The perfect home for Sydney will be with someone who is retired or home during the day. Sydney loves to snuggle and wants to be close to her person all the time. She sleeps quietly through the night next to her person and will wait for you to get up before she moves!

She does not bark much and loves to eat. The only thing we have found that she does not like is the vacuum cleaner. She will bark a little then stand quietly – we are working on that! Sydney knows her name and comes when called. If you are interested in adopting Sydney, please fill out an application. Sydney is waiting for her perfect home!

6/18/19: Day 1: Hi everyone! Sydney here. It has been a big day for me. I was surrendered by my family to United Yorkie Rescue. They made the heartbreaking decision to ask for help finding me a new family who would love me as much as they did. It was very hard for them to let me go - I was well taken care of there.

I went to the vet today too. They gave me lots of shots and also gave me a microchip so if I get lost, someone can help me get home. The dogtor told my foster mom that there wasn't any reason I couldn't be adopted out right away!

Foster mom here: Sydney is a very sweet little girl. We are still getting to know her, but we know that she knows her name, is very loving - she would love to be on your lap or nearby all the time, and she has no problems eating. Although the previous owner mentioned some accidents in the house, she has not had any here yet. Sydney is also very quiet; we have yet to hear her bark! Sydney is an awesome little dog who is looking for a nice quiet home with a fenced in yard to call her own. If you are interested, please fill out an application!
