Buddy Holly

MEET BUDDY HOLLY 9 year old Yorkie boy who weighs 8 pounds being

FOSTERED IN BRYANT, AR

THANK YOU TO BUDDY HOLLY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Jackie Sorrells

8-21-19 UPDATE: Buddy had is initial vet visit today. He is estimated to be 9 years of age and is a husky boy at 8.2 pounds. He was deemed to be in great physical health. Buddy does have some impairment in his right eye and no reaction to light. His vet decided that he is probably blind in this eye. His left eye has normal vision with some evidence of cataract. His vet prescribed steroid drops to his right eye for two weeks. He has a dental on 10-10.

Buddy is very active and very adventurous. He loves to explore, he likes to try out all the dog beds, and be with his people. He does want to be a lap dog and be lose to you. He is a very quiet dog and he settled into his foster home in about 2 days with no fear at all. He loves everyone and makes new friends easily. He does not really like to be left alone for very long. He is a super sweet macho kinda little man.

8-19-19: This sweet young man is learning what it means to be a beloved pet.. He and Daisy Dew came from the same shelter and had been there about 6 weeks. He is docile and very loving. He does have a cataract on one eye, but does not appear to have any problems with vision. He is said to be 6 years old and weighs an estimated 9 pounds. This information will be updated after his intake vet visit on 8-23-19. He does not appear to have been up on a couch before, but has learned fast that is the place to be for rubs and scratches and to be close to his human. He is crate trained and does sleep through the night. He wants to be where his humans are and will lay quietly in a bed when you are busy. He is sweet and very calm, not a barker. He only arrived in her foster home on 8-17-19, and further information will be added.

You know you want a dog like me

I really enjoy a car ride in my doggie car seat
Florida
Alvin

Meet little Alvin. He is a sweet senior Yorkie fellow who only wants to be loved and feel safe. Alvin is 10 years old and weighs 8.5 pounds. Alvin is being fostered in Jacksonville, FL.

INITIAL BIO 10/19/2019: Little Alvin has quite the story. He was found running loose in his neighborhood. This poor fellow, who is mostly blind though can see light and shadows, was not able to find his way home. A neighbor found him and took him back to his owner's son. It seems Alvin’s owner was in the nursing home and couldn't keep Alvin anymore so her son took Alvin. Then it happened again. Alvin was out on the streets, and again the kind neighbor found him. Only this time he was found covered in burrs. When he was taken back the second time, the owner's son gave Alvin to this wonderful and caring neighbor lady. She knew she couldn't keep Alvin since she already had two of her own dogs, which was the limit in her community. She also knew Alvin needed to be in a place where he would be cared for and not allowed to run the streets - this is surely dangerous for any dog but even more so for a dog that is vision-impaired. She contacted United Yorkie Rescue and Alvin became a UYR dog.

We know that Alvin has a history of seizures. He has been on meds for that, and has not had a seizure in 2 years. He does fine even with his visual impairment. Alvin will scout out – sort of a way of mapping - his territory so that he knows where everything in his home is located. He gets along with other dogs and even seems okay with the cat in his foster home. He does fine in the car. Alvin may have been house-trained at one time, but due to the absence of his owner, he needs some reinforcement in his foster mom and she will be working with him on that. Alvin may have some knee issues that his vet will be checking.

Alvin’s foster mom said he is a sweet fellow and seems to be a good boy. Alvin will visit the vet soon for a well doggie check. There will be more information coming after his vet visit. Come back soon and get to know this sweet and adorable little boy better.


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

I am a rocking senior boy who will be your best friend
Florida
Banjo

Banjo is a little Yorkie boy. He is 12 years old and now weighs 5.5 lbs. He is being fostered in Zephyrhills, FL.

INITIAL BIO 10/10/2019: MEET BANJO! He is an adorable and sweet senior fella who found himself homeless and at an area animal shelter. The staff there recognized that he really needed to be out of the shelter, and reached out to UYR to see if we could pull him. Of course we said YES! His foster mom immediately went to the shelter to scoop him up into her arms and bring him to his new foster home. Banjo stayed in his foster home during his stray period; however no one came to claim this precious boy so it's official - Banjo is in our Foster Care Program.

In his foster home, he had a bed and toys waiting and has received lots of love during the stray hold. Banjo has only been in his foster home for a few days, and there is much more to find out about this little nugget, so stay tuned as we get to know him better. He would be a perfect doggie companion to a retired couple and has a lot of life left to live and a ton of love to give. Don't turn away from Banjo because of his age - like senior people, senior doggies need love, too!


To date we've spent $336.98 on Banjo's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Sweet Bella Rose

Bella Rose
Florida
Bella Rose

Meet precious Bella Rose. She is 3-years-old (estimated) Maltese mix and she weighs 8.5 pounds. She is being fostered in Summerfield, FL.

THANK YOU TO BELLA ROSE’s RESCUE ANGELS!

Irene and Peter Havas, Karry Rogers, Linda Neilson, Wendy Fuhrmaneck

Update 10/5/19

Bella Rose is now a Florida girl! Formerly fostered in North Carolina, Bella had a special fall vacation where she got to travel through several states enjoying the fall foliage! First stop, the lovely Bluegrass region of Kentucky for two weeks visiting her Aunt Carol and Uncle Steve and fur-cousins Lila and Eeyore. Then she packed up her puppy bags again for a leisurely drive to the land of permanent sunshine and a new quest to find her FUREVER HOME. Bella is a super sweet, young, active, playful Maltese-Mix girl. She came to us with an eye condition called Entropian. This is when the eyelid curls in and causes pain, lots of drainage and chronic eye infections. Bella had special corrective surgery but she still has some minor issues. She will need an adopter who is committed to daily eye care/hygiene, giving her daily eye drops or ointment and who will promise to keep an diligent "eye" on her ophthalmologic health. Bella is great with kids, other dogs and loves everyone she meets. She is mostly house-trained but she does have an occasional "accident" so she needs a patient adopter who will continue to support her and provide consistent opportunities for going outside. Bella has a "smile" that will warm your heart and will be a wonderful pet to a lucky adopter.

Update 9/9/19

Sweet Bella has finally completed her surgeries and follow-up appointments. Bella was diagnosed with Entropion which is the constant rubbing of the dogs eyelashes against his eye results in irritation and great discomfort. Eventually, entropion in dogs can cause painful corneal ulcers (open sores), which can lead to scarring, loss of vision, or even blindness. So UYR wanted her to have the best life so she was scheduled for surgery. This is an expenses surgery so any donations toward her medical expenses would be greatly appreciated. Good News! She is now ready for her furever home! The dogtor has her on two kinds of eye drops, one twice daily and one as needed for lubricating her eye. Bella’s fur is coming back in beautifully from when she first came into rescue and had to be shaved down almost completely due to neglect. She is an incredibly sweet and happy girl who adores everyone she comes in contact with. This amazing little girl gets along wonderfully with our two Yorkie boys and with our 5 year old daughter. We continue to work on her house training- she is overall house trained, but if she has too much water and isn’t let out pretty quickly, she will have an accident in the house. We’ve also been working on her manners, which aren’t terrible, but not perfect either. Just some jumping up when she’s excited and things of that nature. Speaking of excited, Bella smiles when she’s super excited! It’s one of the most amusing things I’ve ever seen a dog do! She is truly one of the sweetest and most well natured dogs I’ve ever seen. Bella will make some family very happy!

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.

You know I am a handsome fellow

My brother and I love each other so much
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.

THANK YOU TO BUDDY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Trula Montgomery

Updated bio 10/3/19 Buddy is a very sweet, mellow fellow. Buddy and his brother Rocky, who have been together their whole lives, are just so happy to be in their foster home, safe and loved. At only 4 ½ years old, they have been though a lot already. When their owner died and no family member could take them they ended up living outside in a hot metal shed. That all changed and life became so wonderful for them the day they became United Yorkie Rescue dogs. He loves his foster dad and mom very much. He likes to sit with them on the couch. He especially loves to cuddle up with his foster dad.

In spite of all this Buddy and Rocky are super dogs. Buddy’s foster parents learned that Buddy is playful and loving. He loves to give kisses especially to his foster dad. Buddy and his brother enjoy a good game of fetch, tug the toy, as well as running around the backyard together. They get along with other dogs and even with the cat in their foster home.

Buddy is a good car rider and a good eater. Unfortunately, no one took the time to previously leash train or house train him. His foster parents are working on that. He is learning, but it will take more time and patience.

Buddy and Rocky are very bonded to each other and have to be adopted together. They can sometimes be found giving each other a bath. These boys sleep next to each other when they rest during the day and at bedtime at night. They will cuddle up together on the couch. Could anything be sweeter or cuter?

Buddy and Rocky are both so well behaved with their friendly and engaging personalities. If you want double the fun, double the love, and double the kisses these boys will make a wonderful addition to your family. They would be fine in a home with kids 9 years old and over who behave as well as they do. Any family that gets to adopt these young boys will be the luckiest dog owning family ever. In fact they will be doubly lucky!

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. Thankfully both of them were heartworm negative and are very healthy. 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.

I am a happy girlie in my foster home

I will make a loving companion - adopt me!
Florida
CoCo

CoCo is a yorkie/silky/poodle mix sweetheart 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, Samantha Jones, Samantha Jones, Samantha Jones, Samantha Jones

UPDATED BIO 10/02/2019: CoCo is a sweet, adorable 9 year young dog who still thinks she is a puppy! Our little Miss CoCo is always ready for a little romping around and playing, just like a little puppy would be. She is almost healed from her severe yeast skin infection, as well as her equally severe ear infection. It is possible that she may continue to need regular baths with a medicated shampoo. She just finished her last pill for her skin issues, as well as an injection (Cytopoint) to stop the itching, so it’s uncertain if she will need to continue with either of them - only time will tell. The protocol is to give one injection of Cytopoint and then repeat in 4 weeks. If CoCo does require the Cytopoint for the rest of her life, the cost is approximately $60/injection and will only have to be administered every 6-8 weeks.

Since CoCo’s last update, unfortunately she had 3 more seizures, and is now on a twice daily medication (phenobarbital), and will be on this for the rest of her life. Since starting on her seizure medication (September 15), she has not had any more seizures. The monthly cost of the Phenobarbital for the seizures is approximately $31 per month.

Now onto the wonderful things about CoCo! She is a very, very sweet young lady who loves to lay close to her foster mom and gladly welcomes any petting she can get. She hasn’t slept in bed with foster parents, but is very comfortable finding a place to snuggle up close by. She gets along great with all of her (7) other four-legged siblings, including the cat. She does very well while getting a bath, and afterward, runs back and forth through the house like a little kid. She loves her toys and will sometimes entertain herself with one of her toys all by herself.

She is very good about taking her medicine, as it is hidden in a treat that she loves. We are working on her house-training, but she is a smart little girlie and will eventually get it. She will need repetition and frequent trips outside in her new home, as well as a patient and understanding adoptyer. CoCo will go potty as soon as you let her outside, but still has accidents inside.

If you think you could love CoCo and get all your love returned in kind, then fill out an application and let’s see if you’re a match!

UPDATED BIO 08/31/2019: CoCo has really opened up in her foster home – little by little, and is now showing her foster parents what her adoption needs are. She gets along great with the other dogs. She has met the kitty cat, and shows no signs of aggression towards her at all. CoCo loves to play with one of her foster siblings running through the house full speed ahead! She also loves to get her toy, throw it up in the air and chase after it. When she gets excited, like when foster mom or dad come home, she runs through the house bouncing around like a puppy. She is a very active 9 year old sweetheart.

CoCo rides well in the car, whether she is in her crate or wearing her harness and safety leash. CoCo is learning her manners inasfar as house-training, but because she’s on medicine that increases her need to go more often, it’s hard to tell how she is doing. She still has accidents in the house, but also knows to go while outside. Her foster parents are working with her on this.

CoCo’s prior skin and ear infections continue to get better every day. She has a re-check coming up soon to see if she’s ready to discontinue her medicine regimen, which also includes medicated baths. CoCo has had one seizure since coming into foster care 6 weeks ago . It is believed that this was an isolated seizure and does not require medication at this time. However, it she does have any further seizures while in foster care, she will likely be put on anti-seizure medication.

Because of CoCo’s playful personality, she needs a home with at least one other playful dog. The age of the other dog isn’t so important as long as (s)he wants to romp around a little with CoCo. She also needs a bigger home to be able to run through while playing. She would not be happy in a confined space, such as an apartment or condo. Children older than 10 years old would be okay.

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 when she became older and needed veterinary care, her previous owner did everything she could to try to help CoCo, and when she was unable to do more, she sadly relinquished CoCo to the shelter.

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.


To date we've spent $861.07 on CoCo's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $225.00 in donations.

Poor Daisy is not happy to be confined. But still very cute.

Ouchie. Lots of stitches for such a little girlie
Florida
Daisy Mae

Daisy Mae is an adorable 5 month old, 7.5 pound Yorkie puppy girl being fostered in Leesburg, FL.

THANK YOU TO DAISY MAE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Karry Rogers, Jane St. John, Sandy Pagnotta, Jeanette Howell, Dawn Dion, Maureen McCosker, Robin Nyberg, Mary Whitaker, Barbara Burgess, Irene and Peter Havas in memory of darling Happy, Holly Keller, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Sandy Pagnotta, Brandy Swanson

UPDATED BIO 09/22/2019: Daisy Mae had her liver shunt surgery. Her surgeon was able to successfully place the ameroid ring constrictor to start the process of it slowly closing the shunt over the next 8 weeks.

This sweet, loving active puppy is not a happy girl in the recuperation process. She has to be either crated or restrained for the next 4 weeks while the shunt continues to close and her big surgery heals. Daisy only wants to run around and play with the other dogs, but she can’t and so she sits sadly in her crate watching them, or she is leashed on to her foster mom and dad’s bed. This way she can at least be near her foster mom and dad at night and the other dogs when they hang out on the bed during the day.

Daisy loves to give kisses and will kiss anyone she is close enough to reach. She is happy when she can get out into the backyard, even though she is on a leash, and walk around for a little while to do her business. She is the happiest, most loving little puppy who truly deserved this surgery.

In 8 weeks (November 14th), Daisy will go back to the surgeon for her follow up bile acids test. If all goes well and her levels are normal, over the following 3 to 4 weeks, she can slowly be transitioned from the prescription food to regular dog food.

Daisy won’t be ready for her forever home until at least mid-December or even the end of December depending on how quickly she handles her recovery and the transition to the food. At this time we are not considering any applications until we know what her bile acids test show on her follow-up visit on 11/14.

Daisy’s surgery was expensive, but it has given her the chance for a healthy, long life. Please make a donation to Daisy Mae to help United Yorkie Rescue pay for her much needed surgery. It is only with your help that we can help puppies like Daisy Mae and all the other dogs who so badly need our help to live. Thank you.

UPDATED BIO 09/01/2019: Darling little Daisy Mae, our sweet liver shunt puppy, is scheduled for her shunt surgery September 16th. Currently she is only being fed a low-protein diet with the special Rx food designed for liver care. Even her treats are special low-protein treats. She loves her food and will gobble it all up. Daisy eats separately from the other dogs to ensure she doesn’t eat anything but her special food.

Daisy was doing great on the special diet; but as often happens with liver shunt dogs, she recently had a little set-back. She became lethargic, didn’t eat all day and had a bad case of diarrhea. Daisy’s foster mom called the surgeon and told him what was going on with her. Her surgeon said that this is something that is common with liver shunt dogs. He said to give her some Nutri-Cal oral gel, which would provide her with some energy, and to reduce the amount of her food until she was feeling better. He suggested taking her to the vet and have her checked to make sure she was okay – this was done as a precaution and Daisy was doing good. She was given some anti-diarrhea meds and within a day Daisy Mae was her normal, acting-like-a-puppy self again.

Daisy is such a sweet, happy puppy. We are hoping that when she gets her surgery, there will be only one shunt that can surgically be closed with the constrictor. It takes the constrictor several weeks to slowly close the shunt, but after that she will be a healthy, active puppy who will have many years ahead of her. If there are multiple shunts, there is no way to constrict them. If that is the case, Daisy will be on the special food for life, and although she will have years left, she most likely won’t have as many years and as many healthy years as a dog who was able to have the liver shunt surgery. We will all know more on September 16th.

Daisy had her first official grooming and did really well for a puppy having the first grooming of her life. She was not perfect, but she tolerated it. The only thing she hated was having all the hair that was growing in her ears plucked out. She didn’t understand how important that is to keeping her ears healthy and infection-free. Even though she fussed and whined throughout her grooming, after it was all over she gave her groomer lots of love and kisses.

Daisy loves everyone. It doesn’t matter if she hasn’t seen her foster mom or dad for 5 minutes or 5 hours, she still gives them kisses galore. She really likes sleeping with her foster mom and dad, and if she wakes up in the night, she has to give them non-stop kisses until they let her know it’s enough and time to go back to sleep.

Daisy enjoys playing with toys and chewing on the nylabones. She will go to the doggie toy box and pick out the toy she is interested in - for the moment. When she is tired of her chosen toy, she will go find another. She has learned how to climb up and down the doggie steps to the bed and has made herself at home with the other dogs in her foster home. She loves people, she loves the other dogs, she is just full of love and life for everything and everyone.

Daisy is still learning her house-training manners. She will go outside, but she will still go inside, too. Her foster parents are working on this, but it is possible she will not be totally house-trained by the time she is ready for her forever home. Daisy still has 5-6 months of growing to do. Currently she is 6.5 pounds but may end up being an 8-10 pound girlie. Yorkies grow until they are 10 months old so it is hard to know how big she will get when she is fully-grown.

Daisy will not be ready for her forever home for at least 2 to 3 months. She will need 4-6 weeks to recover from her surgery, and if the shunt surgery is successful, she will then require at least another 4-5 weeks to transition from the Rx food to regular dog food. Applications will not be considered until we know how the surgery went and what the future holds for her. Any applications that are submitted before then will be held in her file to be considered when we know what kind of a forever home she will need.

Daisy’s surgery will be expensive. Donations would be so appreciated and you will receive a special thank you for Daisy. Without the help of our rescue angels, we would not be able to save dogs like Daisy and the many others we save and the many, many more that still need saving. Every dollar helps, there is no donation too small and our appreciation will be huge.

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

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 $2083.94 on Daisy Mae's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1212.00 in donations.

I am so happy in my foster home.They are taking such good care of me
Florida
Dana

Dana is a sweet little 2.10 year-old Yorkie mix, (maybe a Morkie (Maltese/Yorkie mix). She weighs a little too chubby 9 pounds. Dana is being fostered in Clearwater, Florida.

Initial Bio 10-8-19 Little Dana recently lost the only mom she had ever known. Her mommy had a massive stroke and is unable to communicate and is no longer mobile. She could not take care of little Dana and is now in a nursing home getting 24-hour care. Dana went to live with some people who really didn't want her. They took her in just to keep her from having to go to the shelter. They would hold Dana until she could find another place to live.

Dana's owner's son and daughter-in-law who live across the country were able to contact United Yorkie Rescue. They told us about Dana and what was happening with her. That is all we needed to know, and in less than 24 hours Dana became a United Yorkie Rescue dog.

Since Dana's owner is non-verbal we know very little about Dana, her needs and personality, and if she had any vetting care. We know she is a little too chubby and may be a better weight at 7 or 8 pounds. She will also get her spa day soon and be groomed. So far her foster parents said she seems very sweet and loving. She will be seeing the vet this week and we will know so much more about her. Come back very soon to find out all about Dana. New pictures coming too!


To date we've spent $222.44 on Dana's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $100.00 in donations.

I am a sweet little boy and love my brother Scooby

Can you see how much we love one another?
Florida
Harley (and Scooby Doo)

MEET HARLEY!! He is 10-1/2 years old and weighs 14 lbs. He and his brother Scooby Doo are very bonded and must be adopted together. Harley is being fostered in Palm Coast, FL.

THANK YOU TO HARLEY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Irene and Peter Havas in memory of darling Happy

UPDATED BIO 09/02/2019: Hi from the “twins” Harley & Scooby Doo. These precious boys have been with foster mom for only a few days now but she wanted to give everyone an update on these sweet SWEET boys.

Harley and Scooby Doo are truly a bonded pair and so close they don't even want to be out of each other’s sight. Foster mom says they are joined at the hip so-to-speak. They are little snuggle bugs and love to be with their person all the time. They are getting along with all the other dogs in the home, and love their crates which they use for both meals and sleeping. Their former owner trained them to eat in their crates and they are very happy to sleep there as well – foster mom says “let’s go night-night” and they run to their crates. They are such smart little boys!

Harley and Scooby Doo are always ready to go for a walk, and they even love to take car rides just to sightsee. These little boys are so very well-mannered and just love everyone they meet. And BONUS – they are housetrained as well! Wahoo!

When they recently had their well doggie check, the vet thought both are a little overweight. Harley weighs 14 pounds and Scooby Doo weighs 8 pounds. It’s important for them to be a healthy weight, so they are now on a doggie diet and getting way more exercise as well. They love to play ball and it’s so much fun watching them running like crazy when the ball is thrown to see who can get it first lol!

Harley and Scooby Doo are current on all their vaccinations, but will see the vet soon to have a dental exam and get their microchip. Stay tuned for more information on these precious “twins”.

INITIAL BIO 08/28/2019: Harley and his brother Scooby Doo just arrived into UYR today. They were sadly surrendered by their loving owner who had them since they were puppies due to some unfortunate changes in her life. They are very bonded and need to be adopted together. Please stay tuned to learn more about these sweet boys.

This is my After Surgery Glamour Shot. Ouch.

Am I cute or what?
Florida
Jimmy Chew

Jimmy Chew is a 6 year old little Yorkie Mix boy who weighs 7.5 pounds. He is being fostered in Orlando, FL.

THANK YOU TO JIMMY CHEW'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Ami Tomason, Wendy Fuhrmaneck

UPDATED BIO 10/11/2019: Hello there - Jimmy Chew here. Let me tell you what has happened to me in the last 48 hours. Whew! When I was in the shelter, they noted that I was limping. In my foster home, I went after a toy that I dropped from the couch, and before my foster mom could put me down, I dropped and further hurt my hip. I've done this so many times before and I don't know what went wrong. Anyway, I couldn't put my right back leg down at all. BIG OUCHIE. I saw the dogtor the next morning and she took x-rays of my leg and guess what? My right hip was completely out of the hip socket – yikes! I needed to have surgery ASAP. I would need to see a doggie vet who can do the Femoral Head Osteotomy (FHO) surgery. My foster mom immediately contacted one of the UYR Team Leaders and within two hours, she had sent the dogtor my x-rays and made arrangements for my surgery Friday morning. WOW – these folks here at UYR work fast!

So I had the FHO surgery and I'm back home with my foster mom and I'm doing very well. She tells me that I will stay with her for another four to six weeks before I'll be ready to go to my furever home. The dogtor says I'll be as good as new. I can't wait. I don’t like being inactive, but foster mom insists that is what I need to do. Hmph!

My operation was almost $600 – yikes! I am asking for your help by making a donation to help UYR pay for my operation. See the “Please Donate” Button below? Just click on that to donate - any amount is appreciated.

I can't wait to be able to run like the wind again. Stay tuned to see my progress reports.

UPDATE 10/10/19 We just found out that our sweet Jimmy Chew needs surgery. The x-rays showed that his hip is displaced and he is limping. He will need a surgery called Femoral Head Osteotomy or FHO. This surgery will be done as soon as possible. It is the surgical removal of the head and neck of the femur, in other words the removal of the “ball” part of the ball-and-socket that makes up the hip joint. Jimmy Chew will likely have a long recovery and probably won't be ready for his forever home for at least a month. His surgery is going to be an expensive one. Your kindness and especially your donations will be so appreciated. Check back soon on little Jimmy to follow his progress. Good luck, Jimmy Chew. We are all thinking of you.

UPDATED BIO 10/10/2019: Hi there, I'm Jimmy Chew. I'm new here and loving my foster home. I'm a very active little guy and foster mom says I’m full of personality and fun. I LOVE to play fetch. As long as you will throw the ball for me, I'll continue to bring it back to you. Guess who will tire first? Here’s a hint - it won't be me!

I saw the vet and am current on all my vaccinations; I am microchipped and have had a dental cleaning. I do have an old injury to my right hip and it’s not painful, so surgery is not necessary at this time. Foster Mom started me on a joint supplement and the vet said she could give me Metacam if I start limping.

Bonus! I am house-trained and I am a pretty good eater. In my former home, I was allowed to eat people food, but my foster mom says not all people food is good for little doggies. But she will give me little bits of certain fruits and raw vegetables that are good for me. I think they're yummy!

I am just a bundle of wonderfulness. I like to cuddle and I also love walks and car rides. I like other small dogs and people. I'm not sure about cats or children. My foster mom hasn't observed me interacting with them yet, but she thinks I may like children that are 10+ years old.

I would like to be in a home with at least one stay-at-home parent because I don't like to be left alone for long periods of time. I would love to have a fenced backyard to play fetch with my new family. They will need lots of energy to keep up with me – remember I love love LOVE playing fetch.

If you're the family I'm looking for, please contact my foster mom for more information. Jimmy Chew out.

INITIAL BIO 09/28/2019: Jimmy Chew is such a sweet little guy. A little over a month ago sweet Jimmy found himself in the shelter. As luck would have it, he was adopted at the end of August. But Jimmy's luck didn't hold for very long. Somehow in the last month, he hurt his hip and his new family brought him back to the shelter. Imagine his sadness and confusion. He had a family for a month and then he didn't. And again, through not fault of his own, sweet Jimmy is back in the noisy shelter, only this time he is in pain. He is hurting and limping.

Thankfully the shelter reached out right away to United Yorkie Rescue and asked if we could take this little guy. Of course we could, and we did. Jimmy is now resting in his foster home on the couch next to his foster mom. He doesn't feel like eating, but he is on pain meds and hopefully he will feel better soon.

Jimmy Chew will be seeing the vet on Monday. We are not sure if Jimmy will need surgery, though we think he may. Whatever lies ahead for him, United Yorkie Rescue will take care of what is wrong, so that he is once again living a pain-free and a happy life.

Please come back soon when we know more about Jimmy and how we will proceed with him on his road to recovery.


To date we've spent $1062.33 on Jimmy Chew's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $60.00 in donations.

I sm s very sweet well behaved girl

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

Meet Lilly. This Yorkie sweetheart is 10 years old and 9.9 pounds. She is looking for her forever home. Lovely Lilly is being fostered in Spring Hill, FL.

Initial bio 10-10-19 Lilly arrived at her foster home today. This sweet girl had been with her mom since she was a puppy. Sadly her mom got sick and had to go into an assisted living facility. Her family lived too far away to take Lilly so she went to stay at her vet clinic for a week. While Lilly was at the vet clinic her former mom's family reached out to United Yorkie Rescue and explained the situation and asked if we would take her. Of course we would! Today Lilly became a United Yorkie Rescue girl.

Her foster mom said Lilly was perfect in the car. She walks nicely on a leash and was fine with her fur brother. Lilly has some allergies that she is on meds for and a limited ingredient dog food. She also has dry eye that is easily treated with eye drops. She seems to be a very well behaved little lady.

Lilly would make a perfect companion for a senior citizen who wants a sweet girl to be their special baby.

Please come back soon for more information on Lilly as she settles into her foster home. Maybe Lilly will be the pup you have always been looking for, she sure is looking for you.


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

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.

THANK YOU TO BUDDY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Lisa-Marie Karr

Updated bio 10/3/19 Rocky is a very sweet, mellow fellow. Rocky and his brother Buddy, who have been together their whole lives, are just so happy to be in their foster home, safe and loved. At only 4 ½ years old, they have been though a lot already. When their owner died and no family member could take them they ended up living outside in a hot metal shed. That all changed and life became so wonderful for them the day they became United Yorkie Rescue dogs. He loves his foster mom and dad very much. He likes to sit with them on the couch. He especially loves to cuddle up with his foster mom.

In spite of all this Rocky and Buddy are super dogs. Rocky’s foster parents learned that Rocky is playful and loving. Giving kisses is one of his favorite things to do. Rocky and his brother enjoy a good game of fetch, tug the toy, as well as running around the backyard together. They get along with other dogs and even with the cat in their foster home.

Rocky is a good car rider and a good eater. Unfortunately no one took the time to previously leash train or house train him. His foster parents are working on that. He is learning, but it will take more time and patience.

Rocky and Buddy are very bonded to each other and have to be adopted together. They can sometimes be found giving each other a bath. These boys sleep next to each other when they rest during the day and at bedtime at night. They will cuddled up together on the couch. Could anything be sweeter or cuter?

Buddy and Rocky are both so well behaved with their friendly and engaging personalities. If you want double the fun, double the love, and double the kisses these boys will make a wonderful addition to your family. They would be fine in a home with kids over the age of 9 too. Anyone family that gets to adopt these young boys will be the luckiest dog owning family ever. In fact they will be doubly lucky!

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. Thankfully both of them were heartworm negative and are very healthy. 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.

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 10/03/2019: 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 foster home for 2 months now and is making progress and becoming much more social than when she first arrived. She is more interested in the comings and goings of the family, and if friends/neighbors arrive, she is always curious about them and will approach them to check them out.

Rosie still won’t come when called, but that may just be her personality – she may feel like a princess who expects her humans to come to her lol! Her foster parents were recently on a long trip and when they returned home, Rosie was as excited to see them as the resident dogs were and greeted them enthusiastically, which is a big step for her. She can now be picked up by her foster parents as long as they hold her tightly against their bodies – it’s very possible that Rosie may have been accidentally dropped early on in her life and that may account for her fear of being picked up. Even when she is gently placed back on the floor, she panics for a few seconds. She is good with the dogs and cats in the home, but doesn’t interact with them.

Rosie continues to be happiest when she is taken outside – she will go from one side of the yard to the other side, smelling and exploring all the while. She is now enjoying running around the yard and experiencing the feeling of freedom when she does this – it’s easy to tell how happy she is when she is frolicking around the yard. It would be great for Rosie 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 several long walks every day and be allowed to explore as she walks.

Rosie has age-related bilateral cataracts but she has no problem getting around and investigating all the wonders of the outdoors. Her early labs showed some low values for her thyroid and pancreas, and she has been on meds for both since she arrived in UYR; she has a follow-up appointment on 10/24 to determine if she will need these meds for the rest of her life. If that’s the case, the monthly cost for the meds is only $10.

Are you looking for a sweet little companion who loves to take long walks in the outdoors? Please don’t turn away from Rosie because of her age – she deserves a wonderful furever home like all other companion animals. You will not be disappointed and she will love you forever.

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 $765.60 on Rosie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $25.00 in donations.

Sophie

Sophie is a yorkie mix who is 10 years old and weighs only 6 pounds. Sweet Sophie is being fostered in Dunedin, FL.

THANK YOU TO SOPHIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Melody Urso, Pamela Matheny

UPDATED BIO 10/02/2019: Sophie here! I came into UYR’s Foster Care Program after I was picked up by animal control as a result of a call from a concerned citizen advising that there was a little dog who was tied to a tree and abandoned by the side of the road. Yup - that was me. Animal control was told I had been there for over 30 minutes on a hot 90+ degree Florida day and no one had yet shown up to get me. I am now safe in my foster home and loving life.

My Foster Mom has helped get me back in shape. Since I arrived here about a week ago, I have been to the vet for a check-up, had several nice medicated baths, visited the groomer and finally spent another day at the vet getting my dental done. I’ve been a busy little girlie! I ended up losing most of my teeth, but I am feeling so, so much better! It is helping to clear up my skin infection, my eyes are looking a whole lot better and my Foster Mom says I no longer have that icky breath and she seems pretty happy about that! Don’t worry – losing my teeth doesn't stop me from eating!

I love my long walks and now that I am feeling safe, I also love to snuggle on the sofa with my Foster Mom. She tells me how happy she is that I sleep-in and don't wake her up too early! I am a very good sleeper. I am pretty quiet, very mellow and I think I barked once, but only because the other dog living in the house did it first. I like to ride in the car and the golf cart. Yup, I am not only pretty, but pretty easy- going according to my Foster Mom. She is still working with me on my house-training - sometimes I go potty outside and other times, I go on the pee-pee pad in the house.

Foster Mom always tells me that I am a quiet, sweet and gentle little girl and will make someone a wonderful companion. Could that someone be you?

UPDATED BIO 09/27/2019: Sophie came into UYR’s Foster Care program after she was picked up by animal control as a result of a call from a concerned citizen advising that there was a little dog who was tied to a tree. Animal control was told she had been there for over 30 minutes in a hot 90+ degree Florida day and no one had yet shown up to get her. She is now safe in her foster home and loving life.

Sophie has seen the vet and as we expected, her teeth are horrendous and she will need multiple extractions. She is in pain and a dental is scheduled for Monday. She had a skin infection likely as a result of her filthy and matted coat and was prescribed an antibiotic for her skin as well as getting a shot for the skin rash caused by allergies. She has been groomed and looks and feels much better. Sophie has a calm disposition and has adjusted well in her foster home. She is a bit timid, but not fearful. She is a quiet little girlie so far who likes other dogs and all people.

Sophie’s dental will be expensive, so if you have been moved by this sweet girl’s background and struggles, please consider a donation to UYR. Sophie will make someone a loving companion, so stay tuned to learn more about her.

INITIAL BIO 09/25/2019: Sophie was picked up by animal control after they received a call from a concerned citizen telling them there was a little dog who was tied to a tree. Animal control was told she had been there for over 30 minutes in a hot 90+ degree Florida day and no one had yet shown up to get her.

Sophie was taken by animal control to the shelter. Upon examination they noticed her toe nails were curled under, her coat was filthy and matted, and there was hair loss on her back end. She had obviously been very neglected by whoever owned her. It was obvious not only was she abandoned by her owners, but she was also uncared for. If that wasn’t bad enough, when the shelter vet came for the initial check she found Sophie has ocular deformities, as well as dental disease and is severely in need of a dental.

The shelter immediately reached out to United Yorkie Rescue to take in this little girl and of course we said yes. Before we could get her, the owners contacted the shelter and said they were coming for her. Because of the neglected condition Sophie was in, this meant that the owners were looking at fines and monitoring by the county. Sadly, United Yorkie Rescue could not take her—she belonged to someone. So Sophie sat in her cage and waited and waited for 6 long-lonely- and sad days. The owners never came for her. Once again, they had abandoned this precious girlie. But there was a light at the end of the rainbow for Sophie - this time she became the legal property of the county and within hours she became a United Yorkie Rescue dog.

Sophie was so happy to be out of the shelter. She settled right down in the car and fell asleep, and if her foster mom didn’t know better, she would say Sophie had a smile on her face. Sophie is already settling into her foster home. She has a vet appointment and also an appointment with the groomer. Sophie’s foster mom gave her a medicated bath and she smells better and surely feels much better also. The groomer most likely will have to shave her down pretty close. Even though the nice shelter people trimmed her toenails and cut off many mats, the groomer will make her even more beautiful.

The vet exam will let us know more about her medical issues and what lies ahead for little Sophie in order to get her as healthy as possible. Please come back soon as we find out what the future holds for Sophie, and don’t forget to check back in to to see the new Sophie after her grooming.

Marley

Marley and Nicki
Illinois
Marley IL

10 year old Marley (male) , 19-221, and 11 year old Nikki (female) 19-222 spent their lives together as breeder dogs. Fortunately they were recently released as their owner passed away, allowing them a chance at a better forever life. Both are being fostered near Chicago, IL.

Update 10/13/19: I really like living at my foster mom's house. She says that I am going to get to go to another house where I will stay forever. She says it will even be better than here, but I can't believe that. I love it here! I have a lot of energy, so mom and I go out for several long walks each day. I was a country dog, but now I am a city dog and I LOVE, I mean LOVE all of the smells. I have to keep walking or mom gives me a little tug. She does let me stop for a sniff here and there. Next week I have to go for some surgery. Mom is hoping that it will help me stop marking in the house. She does not like it, but I just can't help it. I want everyone to know I have been here! I don't like to stay in the pen when my mom goes to work, but she thinks I will get into trouble if she leaves me out. One day I got to stay in the pen with my foster brothers, and that was really fun. I only get to do that if my sister is not around. Mom says that 4 dogs in 1 pen is too much, so I stay in one with my sister Nikki. We are the best of friends, and are looking for a home that can take both of us. We have been together my whole like, and I think I would miss her if we did not go together. Keep tuned, and I will let you know about my surgery in a week or so.

Initial Bio 10/5/19: Since this adorable pair has been together all of their lives, they rely on each other for company and must be adopted together. Their initial vet visit indicates their overall health is very good, however they will need some additional vetting to have dentals, spays, and neuters completed before they become adoption ready. Both are responding well in their foster home and coming out of the shell.

Marley is very high energy and requires several walks a day, while Nikki is happy sitting on the couch and relaxing. Marley and Nikki will require a home without any children. They are both very lovable and like to be near their humans. A perfect home would involve a work from home or retired couple. Both are currently working on potty training. Marley and Nikki’s future owner will need to continue patience with potty training. Preference is their new home has a secure fence as these two will be adapting to a new life in a loving home.

Marley had a trip to the vet, and was very cooperative. He will need to be neutered as well as have his teeth cleaned. Currently he has some trouble chewing, but that does not deter him from enjoying his meals! He is wearing a belly band at all times, as he will mark everything in the house. However, when we go out on walks, he is a very good walker, and does not stop to mark. We are hoping that this will decrease once he is neutered. He gets along well with his foster brothers.

10/13/19: I have been at my foster mom's home for a couple of weeks now, and I am really starting to feel comfortable. I have been to the vet, and had some surgeries so I never have to have any more babies. :-) What a relief!! It seemed like I was a puppy-making machine. I also had some ugly lesions on my back, so I had those removed also. I am getting all spiffed up for my forever home. I have gotten so brave this week. I left my safe place on the couch, and ventured out into the kitchen where my foster mom works. At first it was a little scary, but then I went over to her, and she picked me up. I noticed that my foster brothers also like to hang out in the kitchen with my mom. My brother Marley likes to sit on the kitchen chair, but I would rather sit on my mom's lap. I am looking for a forever home that has a nice couch, and a lap for me to sit in.

10/5/19: Since this adorable pair has been together all of their lives, they rely on each other for company and must be adopted together. Their initial vet visit indicates their overall health is very good, however they will need some additional vetting to have dentals, spays, and neuters completed before they become adoption ready.

Nikki is a very sweet girl. Her favorite place if the couch. She sits on it Initially she was fearful of humans, and would become stiff and tremulous, but now she will come up and want to be held. She will eat well if I feed her on the couch. That is her "Safe place". Nikki will be going for some surgery this month. She has a number of lesions (about 6-7) that need to be removed. The vet does not think they are cancerous, but states they are a risk for rupturing. She wants to be in tip top shape when she goes to her forever home! She also has a number of loose teeth, so they will need to pull those when she has her dental. She will also be spayed if she is doing well under anesthesia.

Kentucky
Chewy

Chewy is an adorable 7 year old male, weighing 14 lbs and being fostered in Kentucky.

9/14/19

Chewy is a 7-year-old, 13.9-pound Yorkie Boy being fostered in Versailles, KY.

Chewy was found as a stray and taken to a local shelter. His owners were located by microchip but had moved to another state and were unable to take him back. United Yorkie Rescue was contacted and this sweet, lovable boy is now looking for his forever home.

Chewy arrived at the shelter with matted fur and fleas. He had his first haircut there, and got rid of those pesky fleas, and underneath all those mats is the cutest face ever. A few days later, he went to his foster home. When he first arrived, he spent most of his time in a crate (with the door open). He would come out to eat, go outside and sniff his new surroundings. He seemed to view the crate as his safe spot. In just a few days, he has expanded his safe spot to include more of the foster home. But he still loves to be outside. When he is outside, he doesn’t try to run or get away. He also loves to go for walks and does well on a leash, but he also loves to stop and sniff, sniff, sniff along the way.

In the foster home, Chewy gets along great with his fur siblings and children. He loves to eat, and he loves to play. He appears to be housebroken, because in almost a week, he has had no potty accidents in the home at all. It is unknown if he would get along with children, but he is very laid back, and loves everyone he has met so far. He barks at the doorbell, and barks to go out to potty. Chewy appears to have little/no health issues. He is being treated for eye infections with drops, and they are markedly improved and is scheduled for a much needed dental. Chewy will be ready for his new home very soon.

Foster mom recommends he go to a home with a fenced yard, because he loves to spend time outside. Chewy is very laid back and never met a stranger. Also recommended is a crate or area where he can find his “safe” spot in the home. For questions, contact Foster Mom at CTWard@aol.com

Maddie

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

THANK YOU TO MADDIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Trula Montgomery

Updated Bio 8/27/2019: I can’t believe my Foster Mom’s Inbox isn’t full of potential adopters for me! Don’t let my Big Dog Aggression scare you. I am a really smart girl and want to please my human. With the right family who wants to invest some time and energy into training me, I’d be forever grateful and show you a lifetime of kisses and cuddles...because those are a few of my favorite things to do! My FM even says she knows a great trainer that says I need some counter-conditioning. That sounds great, because I know I’d do great cleaning up all that food on those counters! FM says that’s not what she is talking about, plus I’m way too short to be on the counters. Phooey! Anyway, FM says I’ve settled down around my new foster siblings that are my size. I still like to be the pack leader and assert my beautiful self into everyone’s business. FM says part of that is just being a boisterous puppy with lots of energy. I would love an active family with a yard, where I could be the center of attention. I am a little too rowdy with toys and sometimes I need to be reminded to calm down, therefore, FM says that I’m not the best playmate for little humans and would recommend a home without them. If you are that special someone that has the time and commitment for my special behavior needs, please fill out an application for me...that is M*A*(two D’s)*I*E! I am up to date on shots and spayed and ready for my new family. If you cannot adopt at this time, consider donating to my foster siblings who are sick and need your help to feel better. Paws Crossed !

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 15 year old Yorkie girl, weighing 4.4 pounds and being fostered in Kentucky

THANK YOU TO MANDY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Paul Sherman, Irene and Peter Havas in memory of darling Happy, Patty Kirchner, Lisa-Marie Karr

Updated Bio 9/26/19: Mandy is blind in one eye, and has partial vision in the other. She is currently on an eye ointment to help with her remaining vision. Mandy had 10 teeth and 3 mammary gland tumors removed back in May. She did not do well under anesthesia, and the vet is not recommending surgery on her luxating patellas. Mandy has compensated for her patella issues and is actually quite the speed demon. She is the first one in the kitchen to be feed in the morning. Mandy sleeps quite a bit during the day, but she enjoys cuddles and snuggles. She will let you know when she wants down from the lap. Mandy is an elderly but feisty senior. She lets her foster siblings know when they are too close to her and knows how to defend her food bowl—one of the foster siblings likes to eat everyone else’s food. Mandy is an independent senior with a loving disposition. Her ideal family would be one without small children. For more information please email Foster mom.

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:

Barney

Barney is a 9 year old Yorkie boy who weighs 8 pounds and is being fostered near Ashland City,TN.

THANK YOU TO BARNEY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Teresa Beament, Teresa Beament

Updated Bio 10/9/2019: Hi all!! Barney here. Just wanted to let you know how good I have been doing since being rescued. If United Yorkie Rescue hadn’t gave me a chance, I would have been put to sleep at the shelter. Not really sure what that means since I am a doggie but I know it isn’t a good thing. I have been at my foster home for a couple of months now and I feel so much better! I seen the Dogtor ( which isn’t fun at all) who made my mouth feel good and I can eat yummy food without any pain. I also get to sit outside in the sun with my foster brothers and sisters when Foster Mom gets home. We all run and play in the big yard which is really neat. I hope my new home will have a big yard to play in. I get along great with small dogs and love treats and I sleep in my own comfortable bed. I have a bigger Foster sister who is about 40 pounds. She still scares me a bit because of her size but Foster Mom and I have been working on that. I am potty trained and will let you know when I need to go potty. I do not use the wee wee pads but will go potty outside every time I go out. I am still working on being not afraid when someone wants to pick me up. If I am warned before I don’t get scared. I am a very vocal doggie so apartment living probably wouldn’t be a good idea for me. Foster mom has let the kids getting off the school bus every day let me through the fence and I like that and wouldn’t even think of biting them. I can’t wait to find a new home to live the rest of my life in. I really want someone to be home with me most of the day. I need attention because it makes me feel loved so much. Life on the streets didn’t treat me very good. Some people and other dogs can be mean to you out there. So very thankful that I have got the chance to know what LOVE feels like and a warm bed, good food to eat. If you would like me to be your doggie companion forever please email my foster mom and let her know. Thanks for taking the time to read about me!

Updated Bio 8/22/2019: Barney has seen the Dogtor and is now up to date on all shots. He had his dental today and the poor baby had to have FIFTEEN TEETH pulled. The Dogtor said they came out pretty easy because they were so rotten. No telling how long he had been on the streets neglected from care before the shelter got him. Barney is a sweet fella but can sometimes be a bit grouchy if caught off guard. He is not a fan of large dogs and will fuss at them to protect himself. That may be because of living in the streets for so long. He gets along just fine with dogs his own size or smaller. Barney is doing great on his potty training , no accidents in the house so far. He also walks well on a leash. Barney adores his person and will fuss sometimes to be petted. He experiences a bit of anxiety riding in a car and he really don’t like being at the Dogtors. Foster Mom says Barney is a sweet guy and he is very smart! Barney has already learned “sit”. With a lot of love, attention and patience he will make a great pet for a person or a couple. Due to his small size he cannot got to a home with children under 12.

Initial Bio 8/12/19:

Barney has just been rescued from a kill shelter. Stay tuned for updates as soon as foster mom gets to know him and he has a vet visit. We know he was picked up on the streets and was in terrible shape. He is about 13 pounds but we are not sure how old he is yet.

THANK YOU TO GREYSON CHANCE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Barbara Burgess

10/10/2019

Meet Greyson Chance. This precious little boy is only 4 pounds, 8 years old and has the kindest, most gentlest heart ever.

His quiet and delicate disposition make him absolutely adorable and perfect for someone looking for a little cuddle bug. When you hold him he actually lays his head on your shoulder and snuggles up to you <3 He follows you everywhere you go and is just full of joy. He goes potty outside and loves to explore in the yard. We have fallen hopelessly in love with this amazing little boy and hope to find him his perfect forever home.

You might not have noticed past his adorable picture and precious face that he is actually missing his right eye due to an accident 2 years ago. He required emergency surgery for his eye, however, sustained no further injuries. He went to the vets office this week for a dental, and after a full blood panel & complete physical exam he is in perfect health. He is scheduled for his neuter next week.

If you are interested please go to our website at Unitedyorkierescue.org or for any additional questions you can contact his foster mom at clarksvilleyorkie@gmail.com

Lucy

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

Updated Bio 10/9/2019: Hello everyone! Miss Lucy here. Just wanted to drop a line or two to tell y’all how I have been doing since I have been in my foster home for three months. I feel great! I get to hang out with my foster human brother. We are best of friends. I have all the toys I want and even when I go out to potty with my fur foster doggie siblings I steal their toys too!! I LOVE TOYS!!. I also feel good because I have a thyroid issue and I have a yummy special food to eat. It doesn’t cost over 40 dollars and a bag last me forever and ever cause I am the only one who eats it. I also have to take medication for my thyroid but it is only about ten dollars for a 90 day supply so no big deal there. I am potty trained and will use the wee wee pads. I am also crate trained but prefer to sleep with my human. I am vocal and will bark to tell you what I want. I am also not a fan of big dogs but get along ok with small dogs as long as they don’t mess with my food or my toys. I guard what is mine with a loud voice but I never ever bite. I would feel better as an only doggie because that is what I was at my other home. I am also not very keen to small children but teenagers are cool. They just like to hang out. If you hold like me to be your buddy for life please email Foster mom for more information.

Updated Bio 8/22/2019: 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 has something to say “I am house trained really well because I haven't had even one accident in the house. That’s right folks, not even ONE accident! I love meal time too…I eat twice a day! I have to be on a special kind of food because of my thyroid issue and I need to take my medication for my thyroid twice a day. No worries though , the special food is yummy and both the medication and food is very affordable and lasts awhile. I enjoy going for walks . I can even entertain myself with toys when no one wants to play with me. I enjoy carrying toys around in my mouth most of the time. I do not share my toys with other dogs although I do get along with dogs my size or smaller. I really do not like large dogs at all. “

“The perfect family for me would be one who wants to shower me with lots of love and attention and who also is willing to be patient with me so that I can continue to stay on my best behavior. Please no small children under 12. I still need help learning to share my toys and I still LOVE LOVE LOVE my crate and want to guard it. When I am inside my crate I like to be covered . When someone lets me out of my crate I will bark, bark, bark. I am really not scary cause I don’t bite. My Foster Human Brother has been letting me sleep with him and lounge around on the couch and I don’t even use my crate. However , I will guard it if anyone is around and I think a human or a dog is going to take it. I need someone who can be a STRONG PACK LEADER and give me the direction and boundaries that I need to be my bestest self! I hope to find my forever home soon. Do you have room in your heart for me?? “

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.

THANK YOU TO MARLEY BELLE'S FACEBOOK DONORS!

Karry Rogers, Francesca Csasnova, Michelle Raye Chunn, Lucy Hall, Jill Landers, Evelyn Christiansen, Gail VanDermark-Kimiecik

Update 10/11/19

Surgery Day... Marley Belle's surgery went well. Her blood pressure is running a little low but they feel this will improve quickly. No complications durning surgery. If she continues to do well she may get to go home with FM on Saturday or Sunday. Please continue to pray for her during her recovery. And as always any donations toward her medical expenses are greatly appreciated. We will continue to keep everyone posted on her progress.

Update 10/10/19

Marley Belle went to see her surgeon today for her pre-op appointment. The dogtor was so pleased with how she has done on her medication and food. She has actually been able to act like a puppy and play and run and chew on things... FM mom says her nickname is the Tasmanian Devil (LOL) but loves her to death. The dogtor actually has an opening for surgery tomorrow so she will have her liver shunt surgery tomorrow... Please keep Marley Belle and FM in your prayers. We are all praying for a positive result, so that Marley Belle might be able to come off her medications and special food and actually live a long happy life. As some of you know her care has been very costly due to being hospitalized twice and now surgery... any donations toward her care are much appreciated....

Update 9/15/19

Marley Belle needs your help!!! She is having ups and downs right now still trying to regulate her BP and glucoses levels. She was up and moving around some in her cage yesterday even was able to eat on her own, however later on the day she aspirated and developed pneumonia. She is a fighter and she wants to live. She is a baby and has yet to be able to run and play. She has been sick for the majority of her short life. She is in critical care now. She also has developed pneumonia along with the symptoms from her liver shunt. They are treating her aggressively and she may need to go on oxygen. The Dogtors are not giving up on her and neither are we but we could use YOUR help. Her care is very costly and any donations you could make toward her care small or large would be a great help. She deserves a chance to live... Let’s all work together to give her that chance.

Update

9/14/19

Marley Belle had to be rushed to Blue Pearl last night for emergency care. She became very lathargic and was not responsive. As of today she is still not completely stable they are having difficulty keeping her glucose and BP regulated. She is recieving glucose and lactolouse thru enema they do not want to put anything in her stomach at this time. Hoping to get the glucose and BP regulated. She will be staying again tonight to be monitored and adjust her medications as needed. The Dogtor's plan is to first get her stabalized. If we are able to get her stablized the next steps would be to start medications oral and then evalute her to have the liver shunt surgery. She will however have to be on the medications for 3-4 weeks before she could even have surgery if she is a canadiate. This little girl hasn't even gotten her chance in life yet she needs your prayers and any donations you feel able to give. Hospitalization and surgery are very costly.

Precious Marley Belle was surrendered by her owners this was a heartbreaking decision for them but they could no longer afford or care and wanted to give her the best chance of survival. Marley's Dogtors suspect a liver shunt. She will be going to one of UYR Dogtors today. Once evaluated we will get a referral to Blue Pearl where we hope she will be able to have liver shunt surgery and then move on with a normal life. Marley will need lots of prayers during her treatment and also if you are able to donate toward her care this would be greatly appreciated.... Liver Shunt care and surgery is very costly. Marley will not be ready for adoption for several months. But as always if you are interested in Marley please put in an application and once she is recovered we will begin reviewing applications.


To date we've spent $5817.35 on Marley Belle's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $2915.00 in donations.

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!

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. It is very important to know that Scooby and Yoshi are bonded and very close to each other, so those interested will need to adopt them as a pair.

July 1, 2019

Scooby & Yoshi were owner surrendered today due to no fault of their own. Their owner fell ill and no family members were available to care for them so they were taken to the local shelter. United Yorkie Rescue was immediately called to help these two precious babies who are scared and confused. Stay tuned as we get to know them.

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.

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

09/04/19

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

Initial Bio 8/28/19

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


To date we've spent $692.25 on Tasha's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1140.00 in donations.

Meet Tobias, a sweet little boy who was at a shelter for 7 weeks before he came into UYR. He is 9 years old, 7 pounds and is being fostered Near Clarksville TN

THANK YOU TO TOBIAS' RESCUE ANGELS!

Gail Johnson, Lisa-Marie Karr

08/29/2019

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

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.

We would love your prayers and once again, to continue to support our Fortunate Four, you have several options to donate:

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.

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.

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.

Ruby

Ruby, aka Sweet Pea, is a sweet 3 year old, 3 pound little girl being fostered in Leander, TX. She is Heartworm positive and also in heat so her adoption will be delayed until she has completed her treatment.

THANK YOU TO RUBY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

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

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

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

Stay tuned for more updates as my treatment continues.

Tibbe
Texas
Tibbe

Meet Tibbe, a handsome 12 year old Yorkie boy who weighs 7 pounds. He is being fostered in Round Rock, TX.

9/3/19 Initial Bio: Tibbe arrived into the arms of UYR on September 3, 2019, a happy little bundle of curly hair! Tibbe was a breeder early in his life, but due to a lucky fortune found himself with a breeder who wound up in a position where she had to give up all her pups to rescue organizations! At 10 months of age, Tibbe was adopted and had a loving home. Sadly, his person has reached a level of heath where she's became unable to care for Tibbe, and knowing he deserved better, reached out to us.

Tibbe is 12 years old, and has a few ailments, but is a happy, lively boy. He bonded with his foster mom immediately, and is loving the attention, play time and walks. Tibbe has the typical luxating patella, that we see in Yorkies, but does not appear to be in any discomfort. He also has a collapsing trachea that is not giving him trouble at this time, either. Aside from needing a dental pretty soon, Tibbe has no other immediate needs. He's up-to-date on his vaccinations, and is HW free.

This precious little boy is a total sweetheart!


To date we've spent $358.97 on Tibbe's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Virginia
Bear

Bear is estimated 5-year-old, 10 pound Yorkie boy being fostered near Boydton , VA.

Initial bio 9/26/19: Bear is up to date on all shots , neutered and microchipped. He's going to make someone a wonderful pet. Bear would benefit from having another fur baby to play with. He LOVES to play with his Foster doggie Brother Rhett Muttler. A family with older children who would play with him would be great. He likes to soft bite your hand while playing.

Bear will mark his territory so he wears a belly band while indoors. He doesn't mind. He loves the outdoors and will run out the door if you're not watching so a fenced in yard would be ideal for this energetic boy. Bear loves to cuddle in bed with you. He is an absolutely delightful doggie. He isn’t a picky eater and adores treats. We are working on leash walking. If you think Bear is the one for your family or have any questions.


To date we've spent $332.50 on Bear's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

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

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

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

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

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


To date we've spent $1062.19 on Lily WV's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $925.00 in donations.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


To date we've spent $1609.57 on Merry's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1590.00 in donations.

Leo
Wisconsin
Leo

Meet Leo, an adorable 1 year old, 8 pound little Yorkie Mix being fostered near Madison, WI.

INITIAL BIO: !0/05/17. Leo is an 8.2 pound, 21 month old Morkie (Maltese/Yorkie mix). He is a very sweet, cuddly and playful boy. He is good with children and small breed dogs, but large dogs are a "no". He has had no interaction with cats. Leo is having some issues with potty training. Medical issues have been ruled out with testing conducted by both the previous owner and the rescue. We are working with him as this may be more of a behavioural issue. Leo would do best in a home with another small dog compatible to his size.

Adoption Pending

To date we've spent $49.48 on Leo's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $49.48 in donations.

THANK YOU TO LOKI'S RESCUE ANGELS!

UPDATE BIO: 09/18/19. Loki went to our local vet after his time at the UW Wisconsin Vet Hospital. They observed him for a day and did a blood test to see if there was something from his seizure that would show up in his blood to help discover what happened. The good news is that his blood work is just the same as it was in June of this year when he was found! His BUN levels remain elevated, but they are stable - almost exactly the same as it was before. Because Loki was not eating well, they gave him medicine to help him feel hungry. He was sent home with 4 more doses of the same medication to ensure he continues to eat. The really great news is that he has not needed any more doses of the medication! He is eating 3-4 times a day and actually prefers Kibble most of the time!! He was sent home with an RX food (high energy) that he does like to have during the day too. He has gained weight!! I will take him in next week to get a weight check on him and to see if he will be medically ready to find a family of his own.

I'm very excited for Loki! If you are interested in adding Loki to your family please start filling out applications. Once he is released, I will be looking at all applications then.

Loki's age is not known, but we suspect he is between 11 and 13 years old. Loki is not house trained and does well with a belly band. If he is taken outside, he will go to the bathroom. For this reason, Loki will need a family with someone that his home during the day so he can continue his house training. Loki will want to be with his person all the time. He cannot hear very well and has cataracts. It is thought that the episode Loki had last week was a single event and not expected to happen again. Loki does have RX food that he eats in addition to the kibble.

Loki is one of the sweetest dogs I have every had! So many people have failed him before coming to rescue - he deserves the best home possible to live out his senior years. Could it be with you?

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!
