Armani (Enzo)

Armani is a Yorkie mix maybe 6 years old. He weighs 8.5 pounds. Armani and his brother Enzo are very attached to each other. They are being fostered in Dunedin, FL.

Due to Covid-19 all dogs fostered in the state of Florida must be adopted within the state of Florida.

Initial Bio 12/4/20. Armani and his brother Enzo must be adopted together. They are completely attached and bonded to each other. If you saw them you might think they are connected at the hip. They even look alike though Armani is a little smaller and thinner. Both are so sweet and so good, but they are scared and skittish. It is no wonder because their story is not a happy one.

Animal Control was called by someone who told them there were two dogs living outside in a small wire cage. They barely had room to lie down, never mind stand up or even turn around. The neighbor told Animal Control she didn't know how long they had been outside in the wire cage, but she did know their owner was in the hospital. She told them the owner was an older man who, even before he went into the hospital, could barely care for them. Both dogs were severely matted and very scared. In fact, they were so scared the shelter staff was not able to handle them to give them an exam for several days.

They were kept in the shelters rescue coordinators office where these two small, scared dogs were given a big kennel and a wonderful bed. They were kept away from the general population so they could be socialized and cared for. They barked at every person that walked by. They were exposed to people more and more each day. Before they could be adopted there was a pending possible abuse case against the owner. It was found that there was no abuse, but neglect and that was due to his age and mental acuity. By the time the abuse case was resolved the shelter vet was able to vaccinate the boys, microchip them, cut off the mats, and neuter them.

The staff learned that Armani and his brother Enzo really do love their treats, so the staff offered treats to them several times a day, which they happily took. Finally, they were able to be handled a little and allowed a harness and leash put on them. It was time for the boys to leave the shelter and go to a rescue to continue to be socialized and trained. They reached out to United Yorkie Rescue asking if we would take them, explaining they needed to be out of the shelter as soon as possible. So, Armani and Enzo became United Yorkie Rescue pups. We were told they were both still fearful and skittish, but neither had an aggressive bone in their little bodies.

Both boys were great in the car leaving the shelter going to their foster home, though never more than an inch apart from each other. Armani and Enzo will be seeing the vet soon for a well doggie check. We will have a more accurate age, and although they appear to be in very good health a thorough checkup will be given. At this time, we believe they need an adult only home.

We know, in time, they will learn that people are kind and can be their friends. They will find out that life is wonderful, full of doggie treats, soft beds, toys, and lots of love. We hope to get new pictures of them soon. We know, without a doubt, they will be wonderful companions and pets for the right person. If you want to know more about Armani and Enzo's adventure into a happy life, come back soon to find out.

Florida
Buster

MEET BUSTER. Buster is a sweet little male yorkie who is 7 years old and weighs 9 lbs. Buster is being fostered in North Ft. Myers, FL.

Due to Covid-19 all dogs fostered in the state of Florida must be adopted within the State of Florida.

INITIAL BIO 12/05/2020: Buster just arrived in his foster home today. His family loved him very much, but their jobs kept them away from home for many hours, and they wanted a better life for Buster where he wasnt left alone for so many hours. He is a very sweet and calm little boy who loves his humans and wants to be with them all the time. He is very curious and will follow his humans from room to room. He is a polite little boy who will only jump on furniture when invited to do so. Because he was left alone for so many hours, Buster became anxious and unhappy. He has always been an only dog, but may do well with another dog in the home for companionship. He will be observed in his foster home to see how he may interact with other dogs, although he is the only dog in his foster home.

Buster will soon see a vet for a well-dog visit and will be brought up-to-date on his vaccinations. He must be kept on a strict diet since he did have a pancreatitis episode a year ago, and has not had another problem since he is kept on his special food it is not an RX food, but is low-fat and formulated for dogs with sensitive tummies. Buster would thrive in a home where there is at least one stay-at-home parent and would love a fenced yard to stretch his legs and stimulate his curiosity. Please stay tuned to learn more about Buster

I am ready to be loved and cuddled forever
Florida
Ellie Mae

This Yorkie girl is Ellie Mae. Ellie is such a sweetie. Ellie Mae is only 3 years old and weighs 13 pounds. Ellie Mae is being fostered in Clearwater, FL.

Due to Covid-19 Florida dogs can only be adopted within the state of Florida.

THANK YOU TO ELLIE MAE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Tammy Lind, Robin Grisham

Initial Bio 11-30-20 Ellie Mae only recently arrived at her foster home. Her foster parents will need at least until the second week of December to know what Ellie needs in a forever home. No application can be considered until then.

Sweet Ellie Mae only wants someone to give her and only her attention and love. Her three short years of life hasn't always been a happy one. She spent her first 16 month of life in a 2x2 cage. Her only purpose was to be used solely as a breeder dog. No one cared, no one loved her, and no one wanted her for anything except to produce adorable puppies who went to forever homes while Ellie Mae stayed in that tiny cage and made more puppies. Ellie Mae's last litter was a litter of 9 (that's right 9!) puppies. One never made it out of the birth canal and 4 were stillborn. It was the last litter she could and would ever have. Ellie was no longer useful as a breeder dog. It was time to dispose of her. As luck would have it, Ellie was adopted by a wonderful person who had several other dogs.

Ellie was vaccinated and spayed and life got much better. Ellie Mae needed to learn how to be a dog. For the first time in her life her paws touched grass. It was the first time she was held and cuddled, it was the first time she slept in a soft doggie bed, and it was the first time she had a real home. Unfortunately, there were just too many other dogs in the home and Ellie Mae did not know how to ask for attention. She wouldn't ever fight for her attention; she would just give up and lay down alone watching the other dogs. She was still a sad little girl, and her new mom knew she was sad. Ellie Mae needed more love and attention and she was not able to get it in her new home. Her mom knew she needed a home where she would get the love and attention and she knew that United Yorkie Rescue would find Ellie that home.

Today Ellie Mae became a United Yorkie Rescue dog. She will be the only dog in her foster home and her foster parents have promised her they will shower her with so much love and attention. They promised her they will find her the absolute perfect forever home where she will always be their princess. Ellie Mae is filled with kindness and love. She is as sweet a dog as any dog can be. She loves everyone and wants everyone to love her. She needs a family who is ready to do just that for her.

We are sure that soon enough with a lot of love and attention we will get to know the real Ellie Mae. We were told that Ellie is very frightened to be groomed. When she sees a pair of scissors she goes into a panic. She had to be sedated to be groomed. This is something that her foster parents will make sure to understand better and help her overcome this fear. Elie is not leash trained and was skittish in the car. She may be house trained. There are so many things to know about Ellie and to teach her. If you want to know more about Ellie and her progress discovering so many new and wonderful things, come back soon and get to know Ellie with us.


To date we've spent $0 on Ellie Mae's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $85.00 in donations.

I will be ready for my forever home very soon.
Florida
Nicky

This cutie is Nicky. This little Yorkie fellow is only 16 months old. He weighs a skinny 7 pounds. Adorable Nicky is being fostered in Clearwater, FL.

Due to Covid-19 dogs in Florida will need to be adopted within the state of Florida.

THANK YOU TO NICKY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Nestor Sanchez, Ralph Watts

UPDATED BIO 11/20/2020: Happy Holidays Everyone! Nicky here just to give my fans an update on me. I have been busy since I arrived in my foster home. I have been recently neutered and vetted, so I am on bed rest for a couple of weeks. I am on the skinny side and eating my way up to a healthier weight of 10 lbs. When I have recuperated from my neuter, I will be available for adoption into my forever home. But remember - I am very much still a puppy. I need not only loving parent(s), but I also need another young playful best friend. My current best friend in my foster home and I play all day running at breakneck speed through the house and bouncing off the furniture and each other. Please be sure you're ready for this time of continuous activity. Please remember to keep in mind that I need another doggie companion close to my age and size in my forever home.

I am really hoping for a home with a fenced backyard so me and my new best friend will be able to run freely together. One more thing - when I was surrendered to UYR, my former owner had fallen on some hard times so my house-training sorta took a hit. My foster family is working with me on proper potty habits, but I still have a ways to go. A home with carpet would not be an ideal environment for me. I know I am a handful but I am so worth it! I am healthy and young and will be around a long time so it is important I find the right family. If you feel your home would be perfect for me, please fill out an adoption application below.

Initial Bio 11/4/20. Little Nicky is a young fellow, just 15 months old. He was living with his mommy until her life circumstances changed and she could no longer care for him. His mommy, who loved him very much, knew for his safety and health he needed to go to a place where he would be cared for in a way that she was no longer able to do. She knew a rescue was exactly the place to make sure that would happen, and so little Nicky became a United Yorkie Rescue dog.

It didn't take long to know some things about Nicky. He is a young dog and very playful. He loves to have fun. He would probably enjoy a family who is ready to play with him. He is already enjoying being able to run around in his foster mom's fenced yard and play with his foster sister.

Nicky will get his well doggie vet check very soon. He needs to be neutered and have his vaccinations updated. There is a lot of know about this happy, friendly, adorable little fellow. If you want to know more, come back soon to find out.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Nickys small size, he can only be adopted into a home with children at least 14 years old.


To date we've spent $571.13 on Nicky's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $280.00 in donations.

Annie
Illinois
Annie IL

Meet Annie, a sweet and very thin little rescue being fostered in Southwestern Illinois. She is estimated to be 10 years old and is 4 skinny pounds. Due to COVID concerns, adoptions must be within a 100 mile radius of the foster home location.

THANK YOU TO ANNIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Alex Leblanc, Karen Pigman, Andrea Navarro Hays, Valerie Claxton Buzduhanov, Karry Rogers, Angie Cagle, George Jonas, Sandy Pagnotta, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Sandy Pagnotta, Carol Goin, Shannon Jablonski, Alex LeBlanc

Update 12/1/20: Annie was doing so well until Thanksgiving night – she had a serious setback that we did not expect. She started fainting repeatedly, approximately every 10 minutes at one point. I rushed her to the ER and she was diagnosed with a severe heart arrhythmia that caused her fainting (syncopal episodes) and I was told she needed to see a cardiologist for further testing. The cardiologist was booked, so we made the first available appointment for Dec. 22nd, but the cardiologist called us on Monday, 11/30 and said given the fact that she was continuing to faint several times a day, we needed to rush her down to his clinic 2 hours away and get her admitted through the ER there.

So off we went and I sat in the car for about 6 hours while the doctors tested and examined her. It is determined she has sick sinus syndrome (SSS), along with degenerative valve disease. She has been started on medication to hopefully reduce or stop the syncopal episodes, but the only true cure for SSS is a pacemaker. Given her age and multiple heart problems, we are waiting to see how well the medicine works before putting her through an extensive and risky surgery. The ER visit and diagnostic testing with the cardiologist were extremely expensive so if you can find it in your heart to donate to Annie's vet bills, please consider a donation to help UYR with this sweet girl’s care.

Update 11/6/20: Hi everyone, Annie here! Foster Mom (FM) said I could talk this time since I'm starting to feel better! The amazing Dogtor was able to sneak me in a whole week earlier than my scheduled appointment. First, I have gained about a pound since being with FM, which is amazing! I eat like a horse and she said my ribs have filled out a lot. I am also heartworm negative! I also have a huge UTI, which was not really a surprise to FM. A couple more serious issues are that my red blood count and hemoglobin are extremely low. Not low enough to need a transfusion, because they are making more at this point, but we need to keep watch. Also, my liver is inflamed and that's a big concern. However, I have massive infection throughout my body so I am on high dose antibiotics to help all of the infections I have. I have infection in my mouth from my rotten teeth, of course my UTI, and serious skin infections. Dogtor said I need to come back after 3 weeks on the antibiotics and get repeat labs. If my liver values are not improved, we may need to do an ultrasound to see why it's inflamed. But the antibiotics will clear up my UTI, and will make my mouth feel better for a while. Dogtor also wants to hold off doing my dental and spay until I'm a little healthier and heavier to make sure I will be okay during the surgery, so I will be staying with FM for a while and that is just fine with me she feeds me a lot! I'll update again after my next labs in three weeks. Thanks for all your love and support! Love, Annie

Initial Bio 10/29/20: Annie is a 10 year old (guestimate), vaccinated, very emaciated yorkie/silky mix who was pulled by UYR from a St. Louis animal control. She was found abandoned by animal control in a field. It is clear she has been neglected for some time, as she came in with matted hair and had to be shaved, has some hair loss on her ears, paws, and tail, and is arthritic. She also has dental disease.

Despite her neglect, Annie is a very sweet, loving dog and gets along well with the small, resident dog of the house. She follows her foster mom everywhere and just wants to be loved.

Annie's first vet appointment is scheduled in almost two weeks, and hopefully she can put on some weight between now and then. She will definitely need bloodwork to see if she will be able to tolerate anesthesia for her dental and spay. Please stay tuned to learn more about sweet Annie!

Gizmo
Illinois
Gizmo IL

Meet Gizmo, a sweetheart of a Yorkie Mix boy who suffered a pelvic injury after being hit by a car. His owners declined to get him the treatment needed, so he was surrendered. Happily UYR was there to help. Gizmo is being fostered in Caseyville, IL and will be adopted only within 100 miles of his foster home in Illinois.

THANK YOU TO GIZMO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Loretta Kish

THANK YOU TO GIZMO'S FACEBOOK DONORS!

Carol Nelson, Peggy Buchanan, George Jones, Wendy D'Uva, Jennifer Dean, Suzan Robison, Robin Nyberg, Susana Collins, Jennifer Runk Fennan

11/20/20 update - Gizmo is feeling so much better now after being on crate rest, having all the nasty bugs removed, and being in a warm, clean environment. He wants to thank everyone for their support and donations to get his immediate medical care that he so desperately needed. We have consulted with a specialist who says that Gizmo would be better off remaining on crate rest for a couple of months to heal rather than attempting surgery since the broken hip is already set from the 2 weeks before UYR acquired him. They would have to re-break the hip in order to fix it and they think he would have a better chance at using the leg normally by healing on crate rest at this point. He is using his leg to walk slowing during potty breaks so that his muscles dont atrophy and as long as he continues to heal and progress, he can start having longer walks in a few weeks. It will take time and he definitely wants to play, but he will have to be patient for that to happen. Otherwise, his labs are normal and he is heartworm negative, which is a huge miracle considering he was an outside dog. The vets dont see any reason to delay neutering him, so his neuter is scheduled for December 14th, which will give him some more healing time first, and then his hip will also get rechecked at the neuter appointment. After his neuter, his hip will just need to finish healing and he will be ready for adoption. He is friendly towards every person, small dogs, and calm bigger dogs. He appears fully crate trained, as he has never had an accident in his crate. Since he is on crate rest, it is unknown if he is housetrained at this point.

Initial Bio 11/15/20 - Gizmo is a 2 year old, 12 pound little terrier mix that came into UYR two weeks after being hit by a car. The owners did not seek proper medical care and he has not seen by a vet since he was a puppy. Not only did he have to live with the pain after the car hit him, but he was also kept as an outside dog and was infested with fleas both when he was found after being hit, and when he was finally surrendered. This poor guy has been through it, but is still the sweetest dog ever. He currently does not walk on his right rear leg at all, but we are taking him to the vet to see if it was broken during the accident, if its nerve damage, or why he cannot bear weight. We are praying for a good outcome. He will also need to be vaccinated, neutered, heartworm tested, and treated for parasites. Other than his leg and flea issue, which he is already on medication for, he appears very healthy. He is friendly towards everyone he has met so far, and is friendly towards other calm dogs. Please consider a donation towards his medical bills towards his treatment so he can hurry into his forever home for the holidays!


To date we've spent $273.88 on Gizmo IL's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $565.00 in donations.

Rodger is a 10-year-old, 8 pound Yorkie-Shitzu mix male being fostered in Des Moines, IA.

Please note due to COVID-19, only applicants within a 100 mile radius of Des Moines, IA will be considered.

THANK YOU TO RODGER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Leland Maniloff, Jennifer Wieneke

UPDATE BIO: 11/14/20. Little Rodger had his dental and a benign fatty mass removed. Great news, the vet gave him a clean bill of health. If you're looking for a cuddly little boy, Rodger would make a great companion! He's hoping to find his Forever Home in time for the holidays! 🎄🧸

Update 10-28-20: Rodger had a great vet visit! He is scheduled to have a dental procedure early November. His personality is quite fun, and he enjoys spending time with his foster family.

Rodger gets along well and is respectful of the 3 resident girl dogs. He absolutely loves squeaky toys! He also perks his ears up when he hears his name and will come running!

Rodger is great with men, women and children as long as they are kind to him and give him lots of attention!

INITIAL BIO. 10/07/20. Rodger would do best in a home with an active owner that is home most of the time. A perfect owner would be retired, stay at home, or work from home.

Rodger likes to play ball and go for walks. He does a nice job sitting for treats. Fenced yard required - wireless fences or tie outs will not be permitted.

Initial vet visit is scheduled for early next week. Additional updates to follow.

Buck
Rhode Island
Buck

Meet Buck, a sweet 12 pound, 6 year old Yorkie boy being fostered in East Providence, RI. Due to COVID, no out of state adoptions will be considered.

THANK YOU TO BUCK'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Gail Minnich, Genesis Padilla

UPDATE BIO: 12/01/20. Look at this sweet face!!! After having some time to spend with Buck, we are now ready to find this baby his furever lap with lots of belly rubs to offer! Precious Buck is an adorable 6-yr-old, 10-12lb yorkie, who absolutely loves his people. He was raised by his surrendering mom and dad, along with 7 grandchildren through his 6yrs in their home.

What brought Buck to UYR was that this baby nipped at a 31/2yr old's hand that was reaching out to pat him while he was laying down. Whether this was due to fear or a startle reflex, and although his mom's heart was broken at the thought of surrendering , the family as a unit agreed it was best to try and place this baby into rescue so that a home that was free of "young children" might guarantee a better future for this sweet baby. Since Buck has no aggression or prior issues, and this could have been a normal response for a dog, we do feel that

Buck would do best in a home with no children under the age of 12. We would ideally love that his adopters are stay at home owners. We would also prefer his potential adopter have a fenced yard. Buck does get anxious when he realizes his person is about to leave him alone but he will calm down eventually. He does take an inexpensive medication to help with his anxiety and we are working on this and hope that his furever mom or dad will be willing to see that his time alone is minimal or that he is allowed to go on outings. This little boy deserves someone that will help him regain his self confidence and reassurance and will always be there for him. He is just 6yrs old and full of love to give for years! If you feel you can offer this doll baby a furever home, please fill out an application at www.uyr.us or contact foster mom at fortheloveofyorkies42@gmail.com.

Initial Bio 9/9/2020: Buck was surrendered to UYR because he nipped at a toddler who startled him when he was sleeping. Although Buck had been around children since a pup, the family felt it was in Buck's best interest to rehome him. It was a very difficult and heartbreaking decision for his mom, but Buck has always been an anxious boy and she has noticed his anxiety has increased and felt this was the best option for him. Buck is anxious/nervous, circles at times due to the turmoil. We will update with Bucks progress as we learn more about him and his needs. We have plenty of time and patience for this handsome boy.


To date we've spent $0 on Buck's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $275.00 in donations.

Dottie Belle
Tennessee
Dottie Belle

Dottie Belle is a 13 year old (estimated) Yorkie mix who weighs about 6lbs and is being fostered near Ashland City, TN.

THANK YOU TO DOTTIE BELLE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Yvette Vangeloff, Jayne Newell, Anonymous Facebook Donors, Wendy Fuhrmaneck

Updated Bio 12/3/20: Dottie Belle is doing so much better since she first came into rescue. She is eating well all on her own and has gained about 1-2 pounds. Her skin is looking better and her ear infections are just about healed up. She is has a bath with special shampoo and a supplement to help her skin continue to heal up. She is also on a supplement for her arthritis. Her left eye is still giving her trouble, she is having it removed on the 10th of December. Dottie isnt a cuddler, but she enjoys being petted. She needs a home with an understanding family who knows how to care for Senior dogs. She eats and sleeps most of the time but does like to roam around a bit outside when it isnt too cold. If you can please donate to her care and say a prayer that this sweetie gets a home of her very own soon. That is her Christmas Wish.

Updated Bio 11/9/20: Dottie Belle came into rescue last Tuesday. She was either dumped or found wondering the streets which landed her at a shelter in not very good condition. She was flea infested, severely matted, her eyes were matted shut and she was malnourished and extremely weak. The shelter reached out to Rescue and now she is in good hands on her way to recovery. Once cleaned up we noticed an infection in one of her eyes. Its there but is sunk in a bit. The vet said she was probably born with this condition and it ruptured at some point which has caused the infection she has. We will be treating her eye for a couple of weeks but we will will be scheduling the removal of her eye so it doesnt bother her anymore and it does not function anyhow. She does suffer from ear infections and will be treated for that the next couple of weeks also. She has no teeth and has suffered in the past from bad periodontal disease which has caused her bottom jaw to wither in. Foster mom has been working with her to find her food bowl and helping her eat till she gets the hang of it in her own. She is doing well at drinking her water. The good news is that her bloodwork came back good, she is heartworm negative and her fecal was negative. She has been spayed. Her heart sounds good and her body is ok, just needs to get her skin healthy and put a couple of pounds on her. She is now up to date on all shots and is on heartworm and flea prevention. She will be microchipped when she has her eye surgery. Dottie Belle is very sweet and does what most Senior dogs do. She adores her new soft big bed, loves to eat, enjoys her water and wants love and affection. Never underestimate how much love a senior dog can give when rescued. She needs a forever place to live the rest of her life in feeling loved, secure never having to wonder if she will be clean safe and fed. If you are interested in giving Dottie Belle that please email Foster mom with more questions.

Initial Bio 11/5/20: Dottie Belle came into Rescue this week. She came from a shelter in TN and she is in pretty bad shape at the moment. She is weak and super skinny. She has no teeth and her bottom jaw has withered in, she needs help eating her soft food and she loves it so much. No telling how much food she had to eat before she ended up in the shelter. One of eyes crusts over and is sunk in a bit and her other eye is cloudy. She has her Vet appointment Monday and we will find out what all is going on with this sweetie and she can enjoy a new life being cared for and loved.

UPDATE 11-2-20: After nearly a month in the cone of shame, Bosco's nasty infection finally healed and he's been enjoying the cone-free life. He's learning to play with other dogs, and absolutely loves going for long walks and exploring the neighborhood. But he also loves bedtime snuggles and playing tug of war with his squeaky toys.

On Monday he saw an eye specialist who said he's a good candidate for cataract surgery in his remaining eye. He currently can sense light and dark but otherwise has no vision. Since he's still so active, the surgery would significantly improve his quality of life. Although he's adapted well to having no vision, he still occasionally bumps into things on his walks--especially if he's excited and trying to catch a squirrel.

UPDATE BIO: 07/29/20. Precious Boscoe came into rescue after living a life that no baby should have lived. He was attacked by a larger dog, suffered a horrific eye injury which left his eye paralyzed, and he lost all of his lower jaw, all without medical care. Not only did he endure this a few years ago, he was also left behind with one bowl of food after his owners up and moved. Coming into United Yorkie Rescue, Bosco is now in a quiet safe loving home where food is never a worry, dogs will not attack him, and there are plenty of belly rubs full of love to enjoy.

Last week Bosco underwent surgery and we removed his sightless damaged and weepy eye. This past weekend he started with an infection around his sutures which we have added additional antibiotics to, and are now running cultures to stay ahead of this. This is not uncommon with an eye that was already compromised with infections needing 4 medications, 4 times a day. Bosco is also learning how to navigate with the cone, but he still cannot figure out how to burrow under his blanket without a little help from his foster momma. While Bosco heals from this enucleation of his right eye, we will soon address Bosco's remaining eye. He has a cataract in his remaining good eye;and has been told he is a candidate for the correction. He has adapted very well with his limited vision. He may need someone to keep an eye out for him at the top of stairs and around open water, otherwise he acts very sighted. We pray that his future will hold hope for cataract surgery and will become a reality. In the meantime, this brave little boy is not letting life's little problems stop him from continuing to enjoy this new found life.

Bosco is such a gentle soul who just wants only to be close to his human. He's happy to snooze on the couch if you're nearby, especially if he can get scratches behind his ears or on his belly. He especially likes to snuggle up with his foster mom at bedtime. He also loves going for walks and meeting other dogs, and playing with his squeaky stuffed elephant toy. What's not to love about him! If you feel you have the perfect home and heart for Bosco, please email foster mom at uyr.atx@gmail.com and fill out an application at www.uyr.us. Donations for Bosco can also be made on our website at www.uyr.us. Thank you!!

INITIAL BIO: 06/25/20. Meet Bosco! Hes a 10 year old 13-lb boy being fostered in Austin. Hes been through a lot but hes super sweet and super friendly. Boscoe was left alone for days at a time after his owner passed away. He was left with a big bowl of food each time, so when he was first rescued he was so overweight he could barely move. He was rescued 2 months ago, and hes doing much better! You can see from his photos hes much slimmer and he gets around great.

Bosco has cataracts, but the vet says hes a good candidate for surgery. He cant see much but that doesnt slow him down! He enjoys going for walks and just needs a little bit of help to avoid curbs. Hes happy to snuggle up next to you, especially if you give him some skritches. He also loves to make a blanket nest and curl up there. Hes going to the vet this week to get some help with his allergies, so check back soon for an update.


To date we've spent $2231.54 on Bosco's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1892.00 in donations.

UPDATE BIO: 09/13/20.

As you can see, sweet Crystal has been with me for almost 2 years! Having come from the puppy mill that we shut down in the Valley View Area of Texas in early 2019, this little lady has had her share of issues. This is pretty typical of mill babies since their care is non-existent, but also their lifestyle, lack of love and attention, and living conditions also traumatize these angels.

Medically, as you see, we have spent over $12K on this baby girl. Crystal had life saving pyometra surgery within 30 minutes after we left the hell hole. Unbeknown to us, she had a deadly skin infection that invaded her surgical site and she was taken into critical care due to her MRSP. She required addl surgery to clean the surgical site and remove the infection that was trapped inside. Within the next few months she was back in surgery to have both sides of her mammary chains removed due to carcinoma found in one of her MANY mammary tumors. Of course we had a mouthful of infection, infected ears, and eyes that were oozing of green pus due to her living conditions and untreated dry eyes to care for as well. Currently, Crystal only takes thyroid medication and an antacid for her reflux.

Emotionally, Crystal has jumped through hoops to get where she is today. This baby still cowers when you go to touch and she tries to run. If you verbally correct any other dog, she is the first to run for cover and hide. Now she LOVES to be placed by you and get belly rubs and get her hair brushed, and she loves to sleep on the bed. She loves treats and she loves her food. She loves to sit outside and roll in the grass. If you want to see the true love of this puppy mill baby, it's when I bring in another tiny rescue! This is like her having her first Christmas, as she absolutely loves the babies!!

Today, Crystal is doing well. Once again we were in surgery to remove her spleen due to a large mass that had grown inside. We had just finished another round of special antibiotics as she was positive for the MRSP again on her skin. She looks absolutely beautiful again!

Will Crystal ever find her furever home?? I don't know. Life with Crystal would be one where you can have a baby by you and cuddle with you on the couch or in bed. She doesn't have many wants at all. She never asks for anything and is a very quiet little girl. She does NOT like storms. She loves to sit in the sun and roll and rub her back in the grass. She LOVES her baths. She loves to be brushed. She is not a tiny girl so you do not have to worry about her with other dogs. She does not jump on furniture and she will stay where she is put. She loves all animals and is fine around children. For the most part Crystal is housebroken but her housetraining is still ongoing. She is a beautiful gentle soul and for all intensive purposes, she is happy and healthy. If you feel you may have the perfect home for this angel or if you would like additional information regarding Crystal, please email foster mom at yorkiefostertx@gmail.com.

UPDATE BIO. 05/19/20. Once again, meet United Yorkie Rescue Crystal. Crystal is a 9 to 10 yr old, 16lb owner surrender. Her prior adoptive family loved this baby so much. Sadly, the family, both daddy and momma, are dealing with major critical health issues and Covid's shutdown of resources. Sadly, affording new tests for this little girl with ongoing skin and eye issues have left this little girl is dire need of medical assistance due to her own ongoing issues. The decision was made to surrender this baby so that care could continue. A year and 3 months ago Crystal was rescued from a horrible puppy mill with the Fortunate Four as we lovingly called them. She came into rescue then with life threatening pyometra requiring immediate emergency surgery, a horrible skin infection referred to as a MRSP (a bacterial resistant skin infection) and with mammary cancer in which we removed her entire chains. Bunny, who is in my care as a Forever Ours with metastatic cancer, was also from that same hell mill that we successfully had shut down a few months later. These girls not only still suffer with ongoing medical issues, but also share a lot of emotional scars that come from living their life in the mill.

Crystal was immediately seen by my awesome vet at Refinery Road and a medical plan was put into place to once again to address her ongoing skin issues. Tests have been sent to A&M for answers. Skin scraping biopsy, cytocentesis to look for possible cortisol in the urine, a first look for possible Cushing's and a complete blood panel to look for diabetes and or possible thyroid issues with a TSH test. Crystal had previously had great medical attention with visits to oncology and internal medicine prior to her adoption. Hopefully we will get answers since her life was in a healthier environment outside of a crate life and filled with love. Breeding definitely takes it toll on these precious babies!

Please continue to support our babies at UYR. I know times are truly hard for us all with this horrible pandemic, but we cannot stop doing what these babies need...rescue needs to go on. Donations can be made at www.uyr.us. We thank you and bless you all

4/5/19: Crystal broke out in horrific hives and is being treated with another medication and a microbial mousse for her skin since her MRSP infection medication just ended. The oncologist who did her emergency surgery with her MRSP infection thinks she's doing great as does her regular vet. After a week of antibiotic to clear up her hives, she can have her dental and be finally be ready for adoption. Crystal is still very shy with humans until you get her next to you. Then she's just so loving and loves the belly rubs. She absolutely ADORES any and all of the dogs... she was sadly, most definitely an amazing mommy for the mill. She will be a wonderful addition to the right family.

3/27/19 Update: We have reached an amazing milestone...sweet puppy mill Crystal is finally healed and looking for her furever home. Crystal is an estimated 9yr old, 14lb sweet girl. We go for our final vet appointment this week. This angel has had quite a journey after her rescue. She survived life threatening pyometra, mammary cancer and a MRSP infection. These were all on top of her eye infections, skin, ears, and broken teeth. This baby girl, I also feel, has been physically abused. There are times I will reach to pet her or call her and she will cower which just breaks my heart. This is very typical of a mill baby without human interaction, but they learn that love is just amazing. Crystal is starting to crave love and absolutely loves to snuggle in the bed and get her belly rubs. She loves all the fosters and she gets sooo excited when a new one comes in. She immediately wants to go be mommy to them and play. She is such a funny girl too as when she goes to play with the others, she gets tickled on her own and jumps all around which is the cutest thing to see. Crystal deserves a home that will be patient and loving with her. Being a mill baby, she may need to re-settle into your home, but once settled she's such a blessing to have. The perfect home for Crystal would be one that is patient and allows her just to blossom. She loves walks, being outside, riding in the car and just being with her human and buddies. Crystal would love to have another pup to be her friend. She gets along fine with cats in the home as well. If you feel you can give this baby her Cinderella happy-ever-after, please fill out an application or contact foster mom at yorkieforstertx@gmail.com.

2/28/19 Update: Wanted to give everyone an update on sweet Crystal of the Fortunate Four Mill rescue. Crystal went in to have both mammary chains removed on the 15th. Carcinoma was discovered in 2 of her previously excised mammary tumors from prior emergency surgery for her pyometra, so the best cure was this type of removal, as there were many more tumors in both chains. Crystal is home now as of the 20th and doing well. Slowly this angel is coming into herself. The happy moments are just incredible to see as I have watched her attempt to play with one of her fur siblings, try Every bed in the house and rolling on her back and talk as if to say, "this feels soooo good"!! Once again we need your help! This was a costly medical expense, but rescue comes with a price and not with cute bows. Crystal is just an adorable love bug as are her other fur siblings, please help us so we can continue our processes by using the donate button below.

2/9/19 Update: The horror unfolds! Here we have a current picture of Crystal who is one of the Fortunate Four that was recently rescued from the puppy mill last week. Crystal had emergency spay surgery immediately upon rescue due to her pus-filled uterus. The vet also took only 2 0f many concerning mammary tumors off one of her tits to be biopsied while she was under anesthesia. She has multiple tumors in both chains. This new picture shows a sweet angel baby after her first medicated bath on Friday. Sadly, what lies inside sweet Crystal is heartbreaking news that we are working with at the present. These results came back in as tumor #1 being carcinoma and tumor #2 as a complex carcinoma. She was immediately called in for a chest x-ray to see if we have metastasized within the chest cavity and lungs...thankfully, those came back clear. Crystal has bacterial skin infection, bilateral ear infections, loss of tear production in her eyes due to untreated eye infections, a mouth full of horrible decay and now mammary cancer. We have saved her life by performing her pyometra surgery, so now it's time to continue our fight to save her. Crystal will undergo surgery this upcoming week. This will be major invasive surgery to remove both mammary chains to make certain we don't miss margins with this cancer. Possibly her dental can be done at that time as well, we will see. Please continue to support us with these horrifically abused angels.

2/5/19: Meet Crystal, one of 3 breeding females recently rescued from puppy mill. She was in distress and taken immediately for care. She was diagnosed with pyometria, a life-threatening condition which is basically an abscessed uterus. This is caused by over-breeding and lack of medical care. She literally had pus draining from her vagina. Crystal has flea and tick infestation, extremely long nails, hair loss, bacterial skin infection, mammary tumors on both sides, engorged teats indicative of recent nursing. Her teeth are literally falling out.

Crystal was taken to surgery for immediate hysterectomy for pyometria. Two mammary tumors looked suspicious and were sent for pathology before proceeding with the remaining tumors. She is recovering well.

Crystal is only one of the Fortunate Four. Please consider helping with her care by using the donate button below and sharing her story.

11/19/20. UPDATE BIO: We finally have Gio in foster care. Traumatized does not even come close to describing how this baby was when first in care. Gio is in a quiet home with other fursiblings and foster parents that are with him 24/7. The first 24hrs were typical of a shelter baby coming out of a noisy shelter and added to that a five day stay at a noisy veterinarian ER care center...he could not get enough sleep.

Gio was very frightened of any "intent" from his foster mom. Putting on a harness so he could be safely walked under her care, placing a belly band on him as he is not neutered and marks constantly were needless to say "interesting" to accomplish!! Gio was placed in the office while all the animals sniffed and introduced themselves as they left him to himself to acclimate his painful body. Slowly he inched his way out and joined everyone in the family room. Each day Gio is finding the comfort of his foster mom and has decided she is his center. He loves, absolutely loves his belly rubs, but will also growl just to alert to his fear.

Next week we will check Gio's liver values and if we have succeeded in bringing those values down from his trauma, we will neuter him to give him some help with the raging testosterone levels.This will help him also with his anxiety and PTSD. Gio's vet is also well known for his chiropractic abilities which will assist Gio with his neck and leg injuries from the mauling. Please keep Gio in your thoughts and prayers as we move forward in getting this 4yr old angel stable, Thanksgiving will be a day for him to celebrate in our care and it's because of our supporters like you! Bless you all! Follow Gio's story and is possible donate to our babies at www.uyr.us

11/12/20. INITIAL BIO. My heart just breaks trying to comprehend or wrap my mind around what this little 4yr must have gone through! AAC reached out to United Yorkie Rescue very early Monday morning with an urgent plea for us to help precious Gio. It seems that a good samaritan found this little 8lb baby lying on his side in the grass on Sunday evening.

Thinking he had been hit by a car, the finder immediately scooped this baby up and took him to a nearby Emergency Center. The ER scanned this baby for a microchip and found the owner, however, the owner opted to surrender his care to the ER. Immediately. The ER contacted the shelter where he was transferred in the hopes that rescue would step up for his life and medical assistance, which we did. One of our team members transported this baby that sadly cried all the way to our local vet. Gio was immediately examined and due to his painful body, he was anesthetized so they could shave and get a full assessment under his extremely matted, sticky fur.

As you can see in his pictures, it's significant. Gio has punctures all over ther top of his neck, his bruising is now running down his chest. Whatever grabbed this baby most definitely tried to kill him. He's very painful on his front legs. When he stands, he screams in pain as he has to hold up his neck. The use of a cervical collar has seemed to help him have some stability. His liver is also very angry so medications have to be considered in order to protect its function. Needless to say, we have to move very slowly with this baby.

We will update this precious little boy's pictures as life improves for him and will also let you know when he will be ready for adoption. Meanwhile, please keep him in your prayers while we heal what's hurting him emotionally as well as physically. Donations for Gio or any of our fosters is greatly appreciated at www.uyr.us.

Meet Gracie, a precious 10 year old, 11 pound Yorkie girl being fostered in Leander, TX. Due to COVID, only Texas applicants will be considered.

THANK YOU TO GRACIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Lynne Turner

Initial Bio -

11/19/20 - Everyone meet the newest UYR foster Gracie, located in Leander, TX. Gracie comes into rescue after a long life with her human who had to unexpectedly go into a long term memory care facility. Gracie was then left at home to fend for herself by a family member with nothing but a bowl of food once a week and a doggie door to let herself out. Another family member stepped in to save Gracie from being turned into a shelter, who realized her best chance at a great life was to be placed with UYR. As you can imagine, Gracie was quite the mess when she arrived. Nails were super long and hair was long and matted so bad that her ears looked like that of a Basset Hound. Fortunately Gracie has not let any of this affect her personality. She is just the sweetest and loving pup you will meet. And boy can she melt you with those staring big brown eyes! Gracie loves to lounge next to her human and take long naps. She even loves to sleep upside down. Maybe that is just welcoming a belly rub, because I know foster mom and dad can't resist when they see her like this. Gracie sleeps through the night in bed, gets along great with the other pups in the house, and is friendly to whomever she meets. Even the dogtor and staff say she is just the best little girl. Gracie is around 10 years old, weighs approximately 10.5 lbs., and is very healthy. She will have a dental done on November 27th, along with some small bumps removed. She should be ready for her furever home shortly thereafter. Gracie needs a little more work on potty training, but will go outside as long as you learn and pay attention to her signs. She will be best in a home where at least one parent is home most all the time. It is unknown how she gets along with children and cats. Crating is not an option, as she cries incessantly when enclosed. Please fill out an adoption application using the link below or contact her foster parents at uyryorkielovetx@yahoo.com for more information.

Meet Teddy, a sweet 10 year old, 6 pound little Yorkie boy being fostered in Belton, TX. NO OUT OF STATE APPLICATIONS WILL BE CONSIDERED.

THANK YOU TO TEDDY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

UPDATE 3/7/20: Calling all caring and compassionate souls that are eager to make a difference in a very special and needy puppy's life. I have been neglected far too long due to my prior owners ongoing health problems and am in need of a special someone that has a huge heart and wants to be a savior to a very special little boy. Sorry for the wait on my update, but I have been one busy little puppy. So my first vet visit was a doozie! Remember how foster mom and dad said I had some tooth decay; well they weren't wrong. I lost every single tooth when I had my first dental since maybe forever. But I am surprisingly not fazed. I can even keep my tongue in my mouth...well most of the time! I still really love the soft food I am getting, but I occasionally raid the kibble bowl when it's available. It's great that my appetite is good, as I still need to put on some weight to be my best healthy self. I also had to go under the knife twice, once to remove a large growth that thankfully was not cancer, and again for exploratory surgery to find my remaining testicle so I could be neutered. But success, the dogtor found and removed it. I have now healed and settled down and am beginning to behave like a perfect gentleman. I absolutely love to be next to my human. Whether it is on foster moms' lap while she does her hair and makeup, or snuggled up next to mom or pop on the couch during resting time. And I love to sleep under the covers in bed with my people. I sleep through the night without making a peep or bothering the other two pups in bed. I get along with my foster siblings and love on any visitors that stop by. I will go outside to do my business, but still need a little help on my inside manners when no one is home. My ideal home would be with adults that possibly work from home or are retired. I am special and need someone equally as special that want to make all the difference in the world to me. So like Foreigner said "I want to know what love is.....and I want you to show me".

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

Chloe

Chloe is a 6-pound, 10-year-old Yorkie girl being fostered near Stafford , VA.

Due to a Covid 19 dogs in Virginia can only be adopted in Virginia

Updated Bio 10/22/20: My name is Chloe and Im a very happy girl who loves car rides, Im well behaved, and I love affection. My human whom I was very close to went into a nursing home which made me sad, anxious, and I stopped eating for a period of time. My foster mom had me checked by the dogtor and he says Im a very healthy 6.9lb 10 year old girl. The dogtor did say that I need a dental soon. I love to go outside and explore and I get along with the other small dogs and cats in the house as long as they arent aggressive. I sleep with my foster mom and Im learning to use the pee pads. I would do best in a home with no small children and would prefer to be with someone who can be home most of the day or retired. And most importantly, I would love a home where my human doesnt mind me as their shadow.

. She loves to snuggle on the couch with you and sleep in the bed. She does seem to have separation anxiety when her human leaves she will follow you around the house while you are going about your day. Chloe and Cinnamon will do better in a house with no small children and would prefer to be with someone who can be home most of the day perhaps work from home or retired. Chloe loves to give kisses she is a very sweet and loving dog.

Cinnamon
Virginia
Cinnamon

Cinnamon is a 5-pound, 10-year-old Poodle boy being fostered near Stafford , VA. .

Due to Covid 19 dogs in Virginia must be adopted in Virginia.

THANK YOU TO CINNAMON'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Mary Hunton, Rene Anderson, Jackie Sorrells, Nicole Boden, Tony Heath, Barbara Burgess, Jill Arnold, Barbara Burgess, Carol Gostomski

Updated Bio 10/22/20 He was checked by a veterinarian and has beginning stages of kidney disease and requires specialty dog food to slow the progression, medication for painful nerve pain that recently started following a dental where 23 teeth were removed, has an enlarged heart, and takes medicated eye drops for dry eye. His eye problems may cause glaucoma and he is prone to cataracts and should be monitored for life. His current monthly medical costs are approximately $260. Cinnamon is 10 years old boy who is 4.3lbs. He is an easy going poodle who sleeps most of the day but enjoys his time outside. He doesn't like car rides and prefers to keep to himself until he decides to snuggle up with you on the couch. Because Cinnamon is frail and underweight he should not go to a home with small children or high energy dogs. He doesn't like being in a crate. His eyesight has diminished and should be in a home with a backyard so he doesn't wander away or hurt himself. The perfect home for Cinnamon would be one where his humans are patient and have a lot of time and energy to devote to him. He needs to catch up on learning the skills that most young dogs learn as puppies like house-training.

Initial Bio 09/12/2020

Cinnamon recently had 23 teeth removed due to gum disease. He loves to eat his soft food and treats, Connamon does wear a belly band at night. He will go outside to go potty.


To date we've spent $2212.17 on Cinnamon's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1716.17 in donations.

Virginia
Mr. McGee

Mr McGee is a 5 year old (estimated) Yorkie boy who weighs 8 pounds and is being fostered near Stafford, VA

Due to a Covid 19 dogs in Virginia can only be adopted in Virginia.

THANK YOU TO MR. MCGEE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Irene and Peter Havas in memory of darling Happy

Updated Bio 11/15/20: Mr. McGees records show hes 3 years old however, at his most recent vet appointment they thought he was approximately 5-7 years old given the progression of his eye disease. He is being fostered in Stafford VA and is a happy go lucky little guy who just wants to be loved. Prior to being pulled from a shelter he was severely matted but got a haircut that brought out his beautiful brown eyes. Mr. McGee has an eye disease called Pigmentary Keratitis that has caused him to go partially blind and have chronic inflammation and have eye pain. He will requires 3 daily eye medications for the rest of life to slow down the progression of this disease and to lessen his eye pain and irritation. The monthly cost of these medications are $174. He was treated for Lyme disease and will need a dental soon. He loves to go outside and explore, he doesnt mind other small animals as long as they dont invade his space as he doesn't see well and gets frightened easily. He is being fed in a separate room as he is food aggressive. He would do well in a home where he doesn't have to go up and down stairs as he stumbles often. Mr. McGee would not be good in a home with small children or large dogs. He sleeps in a dog bed next to his foster moms bed and is being trained to use a pee pad. The perfect home for Mr. McGee would be one where his humans are patient and have a lot of time and energy to devote to him. He detests being crated so we feel this is not a good option for him unless it is for very short periods of time. Mr. McGee needs to catch up on learning the skills that most young dogs learn as puppies like house-training and leash walking. A fenced yard would be a must due to his limited eye sight. His favorite thing to do is go for a car ride.

Initial Bio 9-2-20: My name is Mr. McGee and Im a happy go lucky little guy. Prior to being pulled from the shelter I was severely matted, got a really nice haircut, and thought a family was going to adopt me but then changed their minds. My foster mom took me to the dogtor and we learned I am between 5-7 years old, I have an eye disease called Pigmentary Keratitis that has caused me to partially go blind and have chronic inflammation if not treated. The dogtor explained that I will require daily eye drops for life to slow down the progression. Right now I can only see shadows and would love to keep the eye sight that I have. I also have Lyme disease that my foster mom is treating me for. The dogtor says I need a dental but should wait 2 months considering I was just neutered and am on 3 medications for Lyme Disease and Pigmentary Keratitis. I love to go outside and explore, I get along with the other small dogs and cats in the house as long as they dont get close to me when I have food or a bone. Im afraid of long stair cases since I cant see very well, Im not fond of small children, I sleep on the floor in my foster moms bedroom, and Im learning to use the pee pads. My foster mom and dogtor say Im under weight but they feed me really good food. Im not a lap dog but everyone thinks Im super cute and loving.
