Alabama
Daisey

Daisey is 10 years old and now weighs 7.2 lbs. Daisy is vision-impaired. Otherwise, she is a perfect Little Alabama Princess. Sweet Daisey is being fostered in Mobile, AL.

THANK YOU TO DAISEY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Christine Stanton, Karry Rogers, Holly Stavis

UPDATED BIO 07/10/2018: Daisey has been in her foster home for a month now, and she continues to do very well. Even with limited vision in both of her eyes, she has learned to navigate around the house like she has always lived there. This little princess is also slimming down on her new "diet" and exercise. Miss Daisey is the perfect little snuggle bug and is oh-so-anxious to find a forever home of her own. She is an early riser and will let her Foster Mom know when she is ready to go to bed. As long as she is taken out on regular intervals, house- training is going very well. Her last home had a doggie door and she could handle trips outside alone. That is not the case in her foster home so she isn't used to letting anyone know when she needs to go out, although when she is taken out, she knows what to do!

Daisey went to see a Veterinary Ophthalmologist yesterday. It was not the news her Foster Mom or United Yorkie Rescue wanted to hear. Unfortunately, Daisey also has bilateral corneal degeneration. This means that she is not a candidate for cataract surgery. Her diminished vision will never return and she will never see any better than she does right now. With her limited vision, she will never clearly see the faces of her forever family, although this will not stop her from feeling the love she will receive. And this certainly doesn’t change the love she will be giving to her forever family.

If you are looking for a very lovable little southern senior princess, Daisey is just the doggie for you. She would love a forever mom or dad that is able to stay home with her since she needs to be taken out regularly and does not like being alone.

Now a few words from Miss Daisey:

"Boy, this last month has been interesting. I must admit, my mouth feels much better now that my rotten teeth are gone. I am getting a bit more energy now that I lost a little weight, although I found out that I prefer to exercise inside the house instead of outside. It is HOT outside. Now that I know my way around all the rooms, I like to walk a specific path to exercise. My Foster Mom still takes me out in the yard but doesn't need to walk near me as much as she used to when I was first learning the layout of the land. Thank heavens - I don't like to sweat! Did I say that it was HOT outside? At night my Foster Mom lets me sleep with her. I snuggle up and sleep through the night. She told me she is positive I will find a forever home soon. If it is better than this place, I really can't wait!"

UPDATED BIO 6/12/2018: Daisey is an owner surrender whose family was unable to care for a little one who needs a little more attention than most doggies. Daisey is blind in her left eye and has impaired vision in her right eye due to bilateral cataracts.

Daisey had her vet visit today. The vet said that Daisey should lose about 1 – 1 ½ lbs to be a healthier weight. After only a few days days of being in her foster home, she has learned her way around the entire kitchen – what a smart little girlie even though she is severely vision-impaired. Daisey will have a much-needed dental appointment on Monday and will hopefully see a specialist soon to see if there is a potential of her gaining vision in at least one of her eyes.

Daisey is doing her best to adjust to all of the changes in her life, and with impaired vision, she is doing a very good job at adapting to so many new things. She stays very close to her foster mom. This little southern princess is the perfect lap dog! She loves to be very close and wants to constantly snuggle – so if you are looking for a little snuggle-buddy who loves being with her human(s), Daisey is the gal for you!

Daisey's perfect forever home would be with at least one stay-at-home person to keep her company and give her lots of attention. She would probably enjoy having a fur-sibling close to her size and age to help her navigate around. If you think your home is the right one for this little southern princess, please complete/submit an adoption application.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Daisey’s small size and the fact that her diminished vision can cause her to startle easily, she cannot go into a home with children under the age of 14.

Now a few words from little Miss Daisey:

Daisey here! I am getting lots of attention at this new home. My foster mom loves to talk to me when she cooks in the kitchen. Oh, and when she watches TV, I get to sit in her lap or next to her on the sofa. I really like that. We went to the vet yesterday and it really wasn't that terrible. But …. it wasn't as fun as my foster mom made it out to be.

The doctor said I need a different food to help me get my weight under control. It sounded like they both think I need to lose a little weight – awk! I am still offended but I’ll get over it! I don’t think I’m chubby. I just think my legs are too short. And I don't understand all this walking my foster mom expects me to do. I think now she is trying to kill me with all this carazee health kick. She says we are just walking around the yard. Well, it must be a Huge Yard is all I’m sayin’.

Foster mom said that I will be getting a dental on Monday. I am not sure what this is but I hope it doesn't hurt. She says I will find a perfect forever home and to just believe her that this will happen. I just wonder when that will be – I love it here already, and if a perfect forever home is better than here – just WOW.

INITIAL BIO 06/08/2018: Daisey is an owner surrender whose family was unable to care for a little one who needs a little more attention than most doggies. Daisey is blind in her left eye and has impaired vision in her right eye due to bilateral cataracts. She just arrived at her foster home today and is learning the lay-out of her new home

Now a few words from Miss Daisey:

Hello everyone! I am not sure what is in store for me and I am a little nervous. I got to go for a car ride with a nice lady who told me she was my new foster mom and we drove to her house today. I don't know much about this new foster home, but I am settling in just fine with my bed and blanket from my old home. This "foster mom" told me she thinks I needs to go on a diet, but I think my legs are just short so she just "thinks" I weigh too much. I hope she doesn't plan on starving me! She said a healthy weight for me would be 6-1/2 lbs. I will let you know what happens with this diet.

Once Daisey's foster mom gets to know her a little better there will be more to come, so please stay tuned to learn more about this sweet princess.

Chikki is ready for her Forever Home

Beautiful Chikki
Arkansas
Chikki

Chiquita Bella is an 8 month old, 4 pound chihuahua puppy being fostered in Bryant, AR.

THANK YOU TO CHIKKI'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Elisa Boyd, Karry Rogers, Irene and Peter Havas, Joe Maxwell, Jackie Sorrells, Steve and Carol Ward, Holly Stavis

6-21-18 UPDATE: Chikki is 10 months old today! The changes in this baby since she came to me from the shelter on March 23rd are amazing. She was underweight, depressed, in pain from a broken front leg and facing amputation, fearful in the scary shelter and nipping, her hair was dry, brittle, and flaking, and overall condition a 5 out of a 10. Now she weighs a healthy 4.5 and is a voracous eater. She is happy, happy, happy, all the time, so happy that when she walks, she bounces. She is no longer in pain, her leg is healed with time, attention to care, and medical advice. She has turned from a sad little girl to a bouncy baby girl. She loves to give you kisses, whether up your nose or between your lips. She will climb up you and press her face against you for her “yummy” game which she loves and requests several times a day. She wants to be with you, beside you, on you, or waiting on you all the time. She has pretty carriage and gait and looks absolutely beautiful in her shiny chocolate coat, always with a smile on that sweet face. She is an ideal companion dog and even loves to play with her foster siblings. She will wake you with a sweet neck hug and a kiss on the ear in the mornings. What a sweet way to start your day. Chiquita Bella “Chikki” has more personality in one of her little paws than a lot of dogs have in their whole bodies. She will make you laugh and absolutely melt with love. Who is ready to give this adorable little one the “furever” home she really deserves? I guarantee she will come to you pre-spoiled! She is looking for a play companion and a mom who can be with her most of the time.

Update 4/28/18

Chikki came to UYR with a broken front leg. She kept us worried and for a time we feared she might lose her leg but we have WONDERFUL NEWS to share about our little “honorary Yorkie.” After a few weeks in her purple cast, Chikki returned to the Dogtor for X-rays and she is now cast-free and using all 4 legs like a champ! By all appearances Chikki now has normal use of her leg, no pain and she is in full playful puppy mode. Chikki’s Vet says to she still needs to limit any “unnecessary RUFFNESS” for a couple of more weeks just to be sure but she has been spayed and is nearly ready to find her FUREVER home. Chikki is literally one of the sweetest, most loving pups you will ever meet. Her perfect home would be one with another tiny pup comparable to her size

to be her best pal. Chikki is a tiny girl so no young children in the home please for her safety. She is a puppy and really wants to play. She is engaging in play in her foster home with Yorkies who are her size and is having a ball and she loves to be one of the gang. She will get her spay stitches removed on April 30th, and at that time, she is available for adoption to the right home. When she is not playing, foster mom's lap is the place she wants to be. She loves to nap snuggled under her blankey and give out lots of Chikki kisses. If you think you are Chikki’s PAWFECT person please apply to adopt her today.

Update 4/7/18

Chikki is doing AMAZINGLY WELL in her foster home. And there is even better news to share on this sweet girl. Chikki's Vet feels that her broken leg is likely salvageable! She is not in pain and she let the Vet manipulate the leg and she even walked on it for him. While her leg does bend unusually and probably will never "look" perfectly normal, there is a good chance it will heal. Chikki now has a stylish purple splint to complement her perfectly shaped heart face. She is on activity restriction and spending lots of time in foster Mom's lap giving and receiving kisses. After two months in her splint the Vet will repeat X-rays and see where we are. She will have her spay procedure April 19th. Please help us cover the ongoing cost of Chikki's care by clicking the PayPal button below and Thank You!

Initial Bio 3/23/18: You might be thinking....this does not look like a Yorkie and you would be right! This is Chiquita Bella or “Chikki” as her foster mom has nicknamed her. Local animal control called UYR to see if they might have room to help this young girl who is only 8 months old. Her leg was broken in January and her former family can not afford to fix it properly and they are moving back to Central America so Chikki needed someone to step up and help her very fast. Sadly, local shelters simply do not have the financial resources to fix broken legs so we decided to make Chikki an “honorary Yorkie” and bring her into UYR. She will see the Vet soon to see how we can best help her. Sweet Chikki just arrived in her foster home today and we will have an update on her soon so stay tuned!

Brandy
California
Brandy

Brandy is a beautiful 4-year-old, 7 pound, little Yorkie girl being fostered in Southern California. Only candidates living in California will be considered for adoption.

THANK YOU TO BRANDY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Rodney and Robin Slagle

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Brandy is a Special UYR Yorkie with Unique Needs.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Initial Bio 2/12/18: Hello – My name is Brandy! I’m 4.5 Years Old and 7lbs of Pure Moxie! I’m a Little California Beauty Queen, and I know it!! I love cuddling in my bed, going for long mountain walks and playing with squeak toys! I just arrived on Saturday 2/10 and I’m just getting to know my Foster Family.

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

Georgie and his BFF Sport
California
Georgie (and Sport)

Georgie is a 1.5 year of. 4.5 pound Malti-Poo. He is one half of a bonded pair and comes to UYR with his furry best friend Sport, a 2 year old, 8 pound Morkie. Both pups are being fostered in Fremont, CA and must be adopted together. NO OUT OF STATE APPLICATIONS WILL BE CONSIDERED.

THANK YOU TO GEORGIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Carol Nelson, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Carol Nelson, Sandra Wendt, Brigitte Saylor, Holly Stavis

UPDATE BIO> 06/27/18. Georgie is doing great after his surgery. I have released him completely from bed rest, and leash restraint. I also let him run freely around the house, as the boys are very nicely house trained. Georgie will still lift his leg at times when running, but the vet believes this is just an old habit, as his knee is very much in the correct place.

The boys are a joy to have around, and someone will be a very lucky person to be selected to be their forever!

UPDATE BIO 05/22/18: Georgie had his knee surgery, and is doing very well with it. Foster mom has not completely released him from bed rest, as he is a very active little guy, who loves to frolic, jump, and play with his buddy, Sport.

Georgie's vet said he could be released, but Foster Mom is taking every precaution, and being very conservative with him. She restrains him on a leash, to prevent him from performing any jumps or leaps. Georgie and Sport are so much to watch, they are quite entertaining.

Update Bio. 04/06/2018. Poor little Georgi! Such a sweet boy who loves to play, play, and play more. Foster Mom loves to watch him but was distraught when she noticed he held his right rear leg up when running. An appointment at the vet verified the suspicion, he has a severe luxating patella issue, and needs surgery. He also has an issue with the left rear leg, but not severe. We have scheduled his surgery, which will be in 2 weeks. He also needs a dental, which hopefully can be done at the same time. His playing will have to be restricted for at least 8 weeks, if not more. Not an easy thing to do, because this boy loves to play.

All this will be very expensive. But we want a bright, happy, healthy future for this adorable little boy. If you could help us pay for Georgi’s surgery, it would be greatly appreciated. We also would love your prayers and positive thoughts that all goes well for him through his surgery and recovery.

Initial Bio 3/24/18: This duo of young, adorable best pals have had a rough year so far. First, their owner was a victim of the fires that plagued the San Diego area. Displaced from their home, they were given to a friend for safe keeping until the owner could recover. That proved more challenging than anticipated and the original owner found that they were unable to come for them. The friend was given ownership with the intent of finding them a good home but is a widow with limited resources who after much heart ache reluctantly decided that UYR could give this precious pair the best start possible to a PAWFECT new life. These two pups are healthy, sweet as can be and are going to make some lucky adopter very happy! Stay tuned for updates as they have just reached their foster home.

Sport is a 2 year old, 8 pound Maltese-Yorkie mix. He is one half of a bonded pair and comes to UYR with his furry best friend Georgie, a 1.5 year old, 4.5 pound Malti-Poo. Both pups are being fostered in Fremont, CA and must be adopted together. NO OUT OF STATE APPLICATIONS WILL BE CONSIDERED.

THANK YOU TO SPORT'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Trula Montgomery, Carol Nelson

UPDATE BIO. 06/27/18. Sport is just the most adorable guy, and is so loving. He does have a fear of strangers, but once he knows you, he is just a love bug. I have been taking him to puppy training, and I actually think he is the star pupil there. He prances around so proudly. He is learning his sit, down, and heel commands, and he has proven to be very smart. he is very nicely house trained, and uses a doggie door to do his business outside.

The boys are just a joy ot have around, and someone will be the very lucky person to be selected to be their forever.

UPDATE BIO. 05/22/18. Foster Mom has noticed Sport is very shy of strangers. Sport and Foster Mom will start puppy training this week, to train him on basic commands, but more importantly, to socialize him with other people, in the hopes that this will help his stranger danger fear. Foster Mom is pretty excited about this,

Sport is such a cute, comical little guy. You just can't help but love him at first sight!

Ommmmmmmm.....I am so chill

I am handsome too
Florida
Baloo

Baloo is an adorable 12 year old, 13 pound yorkie boy. Baloo wants to be your one and only animal. He is being fostered in Clearwater, FL.

THANK YOU TO BALOO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Tatiana Ceballos, Scott Hall, Trula Montgomery

UPDATED BIO 06/21/2018: Calling all the single ladies, I am a mature handsome dog who prefers the company of women. I am trained better then most men you will find and I love to cuddle and have my belly rubbed. I am also loyal (more so then most men) I am attentive and I take up very little room nor do I shed... I would love a home where I am the only pet and ideally a backyard I can play in. I really don't do well with small children.

I am a one person type of dog and ideally do not like to share my owner. If you are a person who loves to have a little morsel of love beside you while your reading a book or watching TV. I'm your dog. Give me a chance and I will steal your heart. I would ask you to text me but I don't have thumbs to respond so please contact my foster Parents. Thanks Baloo.

UPDATED BIO 06/02/2018: I am Baloo! I am a mature Yorkie gentleman. I love the outdoors and especially love being with my humans. If you are a drama-free person, then I am your drama-free dog. I require very little – here’s the very few things I need in a forever home:

- a fenced backyard for me to run free. Oh, and to meditate – yup, I love to meditate in the outdoors. Don’t you? I need a home, no apartment or condo dwellers, please.

- a forever home free of other animals. I want to be your one and only so that I can give you lots (and I do mean lots!) of attention and love.

- no young children under 14 years old. Since I’m mature, I prefer my humans to be mature, too.

- A home with someone who just wants a loyal companion. That’s me! And that’s what I want in my human.

- Because I tend to be a strong-willed character of sorts, it would be best for me to go into a home with doggie experience, and especially experience with the Yorkshire Terrier breed.

- Toys. Lots of them. I love to play with my toys while I sit by my owner(s).

Baloo still loves his toys. Lots of them. He loves to be out in the sun, but needs a fenced backyard. He loves to be with his human. Baloo can sit on command and give high fives. He would love a home with someone who is home most of the time. I will be perfectly happy hanging out with you most of the day, playing with my toys, and checking out the yard. If this sounds like you, follow the link below to complete an application for adoption.

Once you adopt me, I will adopt you as my human(s) and will be forever faithful and loyal to you. I have lots of love to give to my special persons. Will you be that perfect owner for me? I have been obedience-trained and can sit on command, and I give high 5's, too. Pretty cool, huh? And …..after you learn my language, I can even talk! To know me is to absolutely love me. And you will. I promise.

Update Bio. 04/04/18. Baloo still loves his toys. Lots of them. He loves to be out in the sun, but needs a fenced backyard. He loves to be with his human.

I will be perfectly happy hanging out with you most of the day, playing with my toys, and checking out the yard.

UPDATED BIO 02/28/2018: Hello Everyone - I am Baloo! I am a mature Yorkie gentleman. I love the outdoors and especially love being with my humans. If you are a drama-free person, then I am your drama-free dog. I require very little – here’s the very few things I need in a forever home:

- a fenced backyard for me to run free. Oh, and to meditate – yup, I love to meditate in the outdoors. Don’t you? I need a home, no apartment or condo dwellers, please.

- a forever home free of other animals. I want to be your one and only so that I can give you lots (and I do mean lots!) of attention and love.

- no young children under 14 years old. Since I’m mature, I prefer my humans to be mature, too.

- A home with someone who just wants a loyal companion. That’s me! And that’s what I want in my human.

- Because I tend to be a strong-willed character of sorts, it would be best for me to go into a home with doggie experience, and especially experience with the Yorkshire Terrier breed.

- Toys. Lots of them. I love to play with my toys while I sit by my owner(s).

Once you adopt me, I will adopt you as my human(s) and will be forever faithful and loyal to you. I have lots of love to give to my special persons. Will you be that perfect owner for me? I have been obedience-trained and can sit on command, and I give high 5's, too. Pretty cool, huh? And …..after you learn my language, I can even talk! To know me is to absolutely love me. And you will. I promise.

UPDATED BIO 12/11/2017: Avoid the Christmas rush and get yourself the best gift ever. I am Baloo - a very sweet and adorable 11 year old yorkie. PLEASE NOTE!!!! I NEED AN ENCLOSED BACKYARD AND I ALSO NEED TO BE THE ONLY DOG IN THE HOME. I also do not do well with children or cats.

Like a lot of humans, I have lived a difficult life and because of my age, and as a result of my past life’s difficulties, I prefer to live a quiet mellow life now. I love to be petted and have my tummy rubbed and head scratched. I do enjoy sleeping in the bed and ….. BONUS! - I am also house-trained. My advanced training means I will heel, sit, and sometimes stay. I love to give high fives for treats.

I would consider myself a low-maintenance kind of fellow; however, it does take me a little time to get acclimated to my new surroundings. My ideal forever home would be with an older retired person or couple where I will be the center of attention – and the center of their world. Yup, I’d really like that. I prefer to spend most of my time outdoors in my own private dog park that you humans would call an ENCLOSED BACK YARD. Please - no apartment or condo dwellers. 

Because I am a strong-willed character of sorts, it would be best for me to go into a home with someone with doggie experience, and especially experience with the Yorkshire Terrier breed. Come on folks! Spoil yourself a little bit and adopt the gift that keeps on giving – ME! We can chill and relax together and watch the world go by – that’s a perfect day for me. Oh, and remember those belly rubs and head scratches.

Updated bio 8-29-17 Hello, my name is Baloo. I am 11 years old and weigh a lucky 13 pounds. Right now I am living in Clearwater, FL in my foster home. Here's what you should know about me. I generally like to keep to myself and mind my own business. I do enjoy time with my owner, but other than that I am content with my toys. I am in very good health. I have been through advanced obedience training. I have no dental issues which is rare for my age, but I have been very well taken care-of in my previous home. And guess what? I am house-trained and a really good eater too.

My perfect home would be a home with ABSOLUTELY no other pets or children. I like to have all the attention and love. I like a quiet environment and am looking for a stay-at-home person who likes the same. I do have a strong character, so I need an owner who is familiar with dogs like me, especially one with a snarky attitude that a Yorkie can sometimes have; I will take over the house if you let me, so I kinda need owners with a strong character, too, lol! My owners may have to rein me in a little and show me my boundaries from time-to-time - maybe. I really need a fenced/enclosed backyard to play in. I am not a dog park or neighborhood kind of dog. Please don't be scared. I am friendly, loving, loyal and obedient, and really pretty much maintenance-free except for the required belly rub now and then. I look forward to meeting my new parent or parents. I will give you lots of kisses and love. Don't pass me by if you think you would like a special dog like me.

UPDATED BIO 07/07/2017: Here's a note from Baloo:

Hello future Parents

Please allow me to introduce myself. I am Baloo and I am a mature gentleman at 11 years old. Because I have been taken such good care of at my most recent vet visit, I was found to be in excellent health and cleared to go to my forever home.

My ideal home would be a home much like myself - older and retired. Why? Because we can sit around and watch the world go by. I'm not a fan of a lot of excitement and I don't bark much. I really just love to walk around the back yard (preferably fenced). I love toys. I am almost like a puppy in that regard and I bring them to bed with me.

So now you know about me, and that I'm a laid-back gentleman. Oh! Now this is impressive. I have been to Obedience School and I can do a few tricks. Pretty cool, huh? There's something else you need to know. I want to be your one and only animal. That way, you can devote all of your attention to me - that's the way I like it!

Please ask my Foster Parents any questions if you are interested in adopting and loving me.

INITIAL 06-25-17: Baloo just arrived at this foster home today. He was so glad to be there. It seems there was this young dog in his former home that was not being very nice to Baloo. He wanted Baloo to play with him all the time and although Baloo is a young 11 year old fellow, he no longer has the energy of a puppy and he was just so unhappy. Baloo's mom knew Baloo needed a quiet, calm home where he would be the only dog.

Baloo did great in the long car ride to his foster home. He is house-trained, walks nicely on a leash, and is a good eater. Baloo is a healthy dog and has many wonderful years left. He needs a home with no other dogs and no kids. He would love a stay-at-home mom and/or dad if that is possible.

Baloo is settling into his foster home and already his foster mom and dad said he is one great dog and is loving the attention he is getting from them. Much more to come on this cutie as his foster parents get to know him.


To date we've spent $375.97 on Baloo's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $242.80 in donations.
Please donate!

Belle

MEET BELLE. She is a beautiful yorkie who is 4 years old and weighs 11 lbs. She is being fostered in Leesburg, FL.

THANK YOU TO BELLE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Janet Davidson, Trula Montgomery, Teresa Beament, Sandy Pagnotta, Tony Lanza, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Deena Sloan, Louann Larson, Sue Rudy Rusch, Jan Norrish, Karen Cantrell, Mark Maddox, John Sauser

UPDATED BIO 07-17-2018: When you think you have seen it all, a precious and very needy little dog like Belle comes along and breaks your heart all over again. Belle was one day away from euthanasia in the high-kill shelter. No other rescue group stepped up to rescue her, and no one from the public would even consider adopting this precious little girl. Why? Because the horrendous growths on her ears have grown so large due to chronic infections that were never cared for. There is severely thickened scar tissue on her outer ear canal. This scar tissue has grown so much that there is oozing pus and dripping blood coming from both ears. The smell from the festering infection is horrific. The pain she must be in has to be excruciating. She is scratching and pawing at her ears all the time to try to make the pain stop.

Belle was taken to the vet right away. Her vet said that Belle had the worse case of aural hematoma she has ever seen and surgery must be done right away. Belle will be getting that surgery very soon. Her vet said what has happened to her ears had to have been going on for years. Years?? This baby is only 4 years old; this must have started when she was very young. Poor Belle, she must have known nothing but pain - and neglect - almost her whole life.

Belle’s surgery is going to cost United Yorkie Rescue a lot of money. At this time the vet is not sure if Belle will need a total ear ablation in both ears, which involves the complete removal of the ear canal leaving Belle totally deaf, or that another surgery can be done and her hearing can be spared. It is hoped that because her vet was able to get a swab down her ear canal the canal is not totally closed, but this won’t be known until surgery is performed. The swab culture will tell us if she also has a severe bacterial infection, which is very possible. If that is the case, Belle will need to be on a very strong antibiotic.

Please don’t turn away from Belle. Look at those pictures. This is what she is living with every day of her life. Someone once owned this little dog and they allowed this to happen to her because they either didn’t care or they decided she wasn’t worth their time and love. Please, we have to show Belle that people do care and she is worth our love and time. We can’t do it alone. We need you to help us help Belle. Anything you can give, every penny, every dollar, will be greatly appreciated by Belle and by United Yorkie Rescue. We must give Belle a pain-free life, hopefully one where she can retain a bit of hearing, but if not, at least the rest of her life will be filled with with all companion animals deserve - love and care.

Belle, in spite of everything she has endured, loves people and only wants to be with them, to be held and loved. She wants to know she matters. You can let her know she does matter. Please give what you can. Every cent of every donation will go directly to Belle's vetting expenses. We need your help - Belle needs your help and your donations.

INITIAL BIO 07/10/2018: Belle just came into rescue from a high-kill shelter where she was surrendered by her previous owners. Belle has been at the shelter since 06/22 and is timid and scared right now in her foster home. She needs some down time to settle in and know that she is safe and loved.

Belle is a sweet little girl who presented at the shelter with severe chronic bilateral ear infections. She will be seeing the vet very soon to determine the course of treatment that will be best for her condition. She just arrived in her foster home today and is probably in pain from her ear infections, but her Foster Mom is giving her a quiet place to rest and recuperate – and soon she will realize that she will be feeling much better.


To date we've spent $510.29 on Belle's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $520.00 in donations.

Corky Sue

Meet Corky Sue. She is a sweet 10 year old 9 lb yorkshire terrier. Corky Sue is being fostered in Plantation, FL.

UPDATED BIO 07/20/2018: CORKY SUE HAS A PENDING ADOPTION - YIPPEE!!

INITIAL BIO 07/17/2018: Corky Sue was reluctantly and sadly surrendered to UYR by her owner as he was unable to care for her since becoming recently widowed. He wanted her to have a home where she could receive more attention than he was able to give her.

Corky Sue is active, affectionate and playful. She loves belly rubs and will lay on her person's lap or next to them and follow them around the house. She is very people-oriented and has been the only dog in her home and always wants to be close to her human. She loves to play with her toys and roll around on them. She will always greet you at the front door and is always excited to see you. She loves to go for walks and walks well on a leash, as well as riding in the car.

Corky Sue is the most loyal dog and bonds with men and woman alike. Her perfect home would be one in which there is at least one stay-at-home person. She is not used to being around children and cannot be adopted into a home with children. She is surely a special little princess who will make a lovely - and loving - companion.

Adoption Pending

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

Cosmo

This is Cosmo. This adorable Morkie (Maltese/Yorkie) boy is 3.8 years old and weighs approximately 9 lbs. He is being fostered in Ocala, FL.

INITIAL BIO 07/03/2018: Cosmo was surrendered by his former owners when they realized he needed more time than they could give him to work on his doggie manners. Cosmo is a great little guy, he gets along with kids, cats, and other dogs. He likes all people. He just needs someone with the time and patience to work with him on his house training. Cosmo will need all his vaccinations updated. He should be ready to go to his forever home in a few weeks. Cosmo would do fine in a home with well-behaved children over the age of 10.

Cosmo only recently arrived in his foster home. More will be coming on Cosmo as he settles into his foster home, and his foster mom gets to know him.


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

Freddy

Say hello to Freddy. This adorable 2 year old Yorkie boy is 2 years old and weighs 5 lbs. Sweet Freddy is being fostered in Bradenton, FL.

INITIAL BIO 07/07/2018: Freddy is an adorable little boy who was reluctantly surrendered by his owners due to a change in their life situation, and they wanted Freddy to have a more stable and loving home.

He is very healthy and playful, although it may take him a while to warm up to new people since he hasn’t been socialized a lot. He does get a little nervous and barks at first around people he meets for the first time, but warms up once he gets to know them. He gets along with pets of all sizes, but does best with ones closer to his size and age. Freddy is young and athletic, but he also loves to cuddle with his foster parents, either on their lap or next to them on the couch.

Freddy is not house-trained completely, but he is currently using doggie pee-pee-pads as his foster parent assess and work on his house-training. Freddy's adoptive parents will also need to continue with a routine and consistency so that he will learn where it is - and is not - appropriate to do his business.

Freddy is up-to-date on his vaccinations and has been neutered and microchipped. Please check back soon for updates on this sweet boy.

PLEASE NOTE THE SPECIAL CIRCUMSTANCES BELOW:

- Due to Freddy's tiny size, he cannot be adopted into a home with children under the age of 14 years old.

- Freddy is a very young dog and he needs a family that can give him at least a 15 year commitment of love and care.


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

Gina

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

THANK YOU TO GINA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Lazara Hierro, Norma Dorsett, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Steven Opetaia-Williamson, Angie Cagle, Karry Rogers, Steven Opetaia-Williamson

UPDATED BIO 07/01/2018: Gina is one of 25 dogs pulled recently by a sister rescue group from a horrendous hoarding/backyard breeding situation. She is one of the 10 dogs that UYR was able to bring into our group. Sadly, 4 of the 10 dogs tested positive for heartworm disease and Sweet Gina was one of them.

Here’s what Gina had to say recently:

Hi, Gina here with an update.

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

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

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

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

PLEASE NOTE the following special circumstances:

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

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

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

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

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

Here’s what Gina had to say recently:

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

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

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

PLEASE NOTE the following special circumstances:

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

- Adoption applications are being accepted for Gina; however, please keep in mind that because she has tested positive for heartworms, she must endure 2-3 months of heartworm treatment before she can go into her forever home.

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

Here’s what Gina had to say recently:

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

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

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

PLEASE NOTE the following special circumstances:

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

- Adoption applications are being accepted for Gina; however, please keep in mind that she has tested positive for heartworms.

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

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

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

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


To date we've spent $1875.06 on Gina's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $594.00 in donations.

Gizzy is a sweet little Yorkie who is 8.5 years old and weighs a little-bit-too-chubby 7.8 pounds. Gizzy is being fostered in Zephyrhills, FL.

UPDATED BIO 07/19/2018: Gizzy has been in his foster home now for a couple of weeks. He was overweight when he arrived in UYR, and has already lost 1-1/2 lbs, but the vet feels he should lose another couple of pounds to be at his healthy weight of 5-5.5 lbs. Gizzy's former owners had to sadly surrender him when their life circumstances changed and they were no longer able to provide for Gizzy's care.

Gizzy’s vaccinations have been updated and at his vet visit, his urinalysis showed crystals in his urine, so he will be re-tested in about a month. He is now on a special RX diet and will need to continue to eat only this food - and it is expected that the change in food will eliminate the crystals in his urine. The vet determined that Gizzy did not need a dental even though his teeth are stained. That’s certainly good news. It is also thought that he may have seasonal allergies which caused his eyes to be blood-shot, so for now he is given eye-drops.

Gizzy is almost house-trained, but hasn’t quite figured out how to tell his foster parents when he needs to go out, so they take him out often to avoid any accidents. He loves to sleep in bed with his humans and sit on the couch next to Foster Mom. Gizzy loves to ride in the car and go for walks but has a tendency to want to pull on the leash to eagerly greet dogs and people, so his foster parents are working with him on better leash manners.

Gizzy likes to play with toys, but he has a habit of chewing them roughly, so it would be best if he had non-cotton toys to entertain him like a hard plastic toy instead. Gizzy gets along great with the dogs in his foster home and even the kitty cat. Foster Mom says that he is a sweetheart and such a good boy. Would your home be the perfect placement for this sweet boy?

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Gizzy’s small size, he can only be placed in a home with children 12 years old or older.

INITIAL BIO 07/06/2018: Gizzy just arrived at his foster home today and has been relaxing and getting to know his new home, his foster mom and dad, and his new fur brothers and sisters. Gizzy's former owners had to sadly surrender Gizzy when their life circumstances changed and they were no longer able to provide for Gizzy's care. They also had to move to a new home where pets are not allowed. They knew the best thing to do was to give up Gizzy so that he could get the care he needs.

Gizzy will need to see the vet very soon. He needs all his vaccinations and a dental. He will also need a nice grooming since he a little too shaggy. Gizzy is also on a diet. He probably needs to lose at least a pound or two. His foster parents will also be helping Gizzy with his house training and any other doggie manners that he may need a little help with.

Please come back soon to find out what we learn about Gizzy’s health needs and any possible medical issues.


To date we've spent $376.54 on Gizzy's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Lily is happy in her foster home

I am waiting on my forever home
Florida
Lily

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

THANK YOU TO LILY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

PLEASE NOTE the following special circumstances:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Finally, this precious little girl is a happy dog.

PLEASE NOTE the following special circumstances:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

PLEASE NOTE the following special circumstances:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


To date we've spent $906.36 on Lily's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $89.00 in donations.

Handsome Opie after grooming

Sad Opie when rescued.
Florida
Opie

Opie is 8 years old and weighs 5.9 lbs. Sadly, Sweet Opie is heartworm positive. He is being fostered in Ocala, FL.

THANK YOU TO OPIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Chris Gaastra, Wendy Fuhrmaneck

UPDATED BIO 06/21/2018: Sweet Opie is one of 26 dogs pulled by a sister rescue group from a horrendous hoarding/backyard breeding situation. He is one of the 10 dogs that came into United Yorkie Rescue. Sadly, 4 of the 10 dogs tested positive for heartworm disease and Sweet Opie was one of them.

Here’s what little Opie had to say recently:

Hi, Opie here. I wanted to give my fan club a quick update. I went to the doctor last week and had my first heartworm injection. I have to brag and tell you I was a trooper. I was not sore after the injection, but I was a little tired. I slept in my foster mommy’s lap all the way home and then my foster mommy and I both took a nap when we arrived home. She said that I need to get lots and lots of rest and I have to be calm and quiet. Sounds good to me!

The doctor said I have to come back in one month for two more injections. Hopefully, at that time, the injections will be over and done with. I will then be re-tested for heartworms in another month. If everything goes okay, I will get neutered and have my teeth cleaned……. and …… here’s the B-I-G news!! I will finally be ready for my forever family. I am so excited because I can’t wait to find my forever family. I know you are out there waiting for me because I am one special little boy.

PLEASE NOTE the following special circumstances:

- Due to Opie’s small size, he cannot be adopted into a home with children; Opie needs an adult-only home. No exceptions will be made.

- Adoption applications are being accepted for Opie; however, please keep in mind that he has tested positive for heartworms.

Here’s what Opie had to say today: Opie here. I have been in my foster home for 4 weeks now. I didn’t know humans could be so nice. My foster mom has this thing she calls a doggie sling. She puts me in that and holds me while she works on the computer – how cool is that? She also has a huge bed that me and my fur brothers are allowed to sleep in. I cuddle so close to my foster mom that she is unable to move. I wake my foster mom up every day with kisses because I am so happy to be in my new home.

I love my foster mom – a lot – but there is something missing. As soon as I finish my heartworm treatment and then go to the doctor to get my teeth cleaned and “tutored” (I think that is what my foster mom said), I would love to have a forever home. My foster mom tells me that I am the cutest little cuddle bug and that I would make a great addition to my forever home.

He is one of the 10 dogs that came into United Yorkie Rescue. Opie is adjusting well in his foster home and loves his fur-brothers. They are older and calm - just what Opie needs. None of the dogs from this horrible situation were house-trained or leash-trained, so foster mom is working with him on and he is showing progress. Opie is a little love bug who loves to be held and give kisses. He also likes to sleep in bed with his foster mom and fur-brothers. Foster mom says that he is a quiet and well-behaved little boy.

Opie has received his vaccinations, but still needs to be neutered and have his teeth cleaned. He will not be able to have those things done until he has been treated for heartworms. Opie loves his foster mom and the other dogs in the home, but he is looking forward to the time he can be adopted and go to his furever family.

Peaches

MEET PEACHES. She is a beautiful yorkie-poo who is 8 years old and weighs 12 lbs. Peaches has some vision and hearing challenges. She is being fostered in Ft. Myers, FL.

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

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

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

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


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

I am trying very hard to feel better.

Rosa

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

THANK YOU TO ROSA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Karry Rogers, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Teresa Beament, Sandy Pagnotta, Jan Norrish

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

But we can’t keep saving these beautiful furbabies without your help. To date, Rosa’s medical expenses are over $1,600 and we’ve only raised $89 in donations. There are so many other little needy dogs like Rosa out there that need to be rescued, which is where you come in.

UYR has no paid staff and our volunteers/foster parents are paid in puppy kisses, tail wags and Happy Tails stories – this selfless sacrifice is so worth these precious blessings. Please continue to read Sweet Rosa’s story below:

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

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

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

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

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

Rosa’s story is exactly why United Yorkie Rescue exists. For 16 years, UYR has been able to rescue dogs like Rosa in dire straits, sometimes just hours away from euthanasia (like Rosa), and completely turn their lives around. It’s only because of our generous and cherished donors and foster parents that we can continue to do this for these sweet babies, and they all deserve a second chance in their lives.

But we can’t keep saving these beautiful furbabies without your help. To date, Rosa’s medical expenses are over $1,600 and we’ve only raised $54 in donations. There are so many other little needy dogs like Rosa out there that need to be rescued, which is where you come in. Won’t you please consider donating to Rosa’s medical care so that we can help the next furbaby that needs us?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


To date we've spent $1660.45 on Rosa's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $114.00 in donations.
Please donate!

Rufus

Rufus is an adorable 10 month old Parti-Yorkie Biewer puppy who weighs approximately 11 lbs. Rufus is being fostered in Odessa, FL.

THANK YOU TO RUFUS' RESCUE ANGELS!

Beatrix Schaeffer

UPDATED BIO 07/01/2018: Rufus has been in his foster home for a couple of weeks now. He was surrendered by his owners who loved him very much, but they were no longer able to care for him as a puppy should be cared for and wanted a happier life for him.

Rufus is a very sweet, affectionate and playful little puppy. He LOVES playing and cuddling with people and other dogs. He still needs constant reinforcement and reminders in the house-training department. His foster parents are working with teaching him to focus when he’s outside and to do his business before playtime. He is getting used to his crate which is a safe place for him to be when no one is home, but he will still whine and bark when left alone, so his foster parents are also working with him on this as well.

Rufus’ perfect home would be one where there is at least one stay-at-home parent who can initiate a strict schedule for his potty time. He is so young and full of energy that he wants to run around and play and he forgets to do his business when outside. A fenced-in yard would be a big BONUS since he needs to expel his puppy energy. He is also a door dasher and if he sees an tiny opening in the door, he will rambo his head through it and away he goes!

Rufus would also enjoy having children to play with - as long as they were older than 10 years old and understand that he still needs to learn about being a well-behaved puppy. Rufus is a very young dog and he needs a family that can give him at least a 15 year commitment of love and care.

INITIAL BIO 06/16/2017: Rufus just arrived in his foster home today and is getting acquainted with the other animals in the home. He was reluctantly surrendered by his owners who loved him very much, but their life circumstances changed and they were no longer able to care for Rufus and wanted a happier life for him.

Rufus is a very sweet, affectionate and typically playful little pup. He LOVES playing and cuddling with people and other dogs. Rufus needs a little reinforcement in the house-training department, but does do his business outside - most of the time. He is young and gets excited about going outside, and may forget why he is there, lol! His foster parents will be working with teaching him to focus when he's outside and to go potty before playtime.

Rufus can be an escape artist when the door is open, so he needs a home where he will receive consistent training on his "stay" command. He goes willingly into his crate if he is given the "place" command and of course, he knows he will get a treat once he obeys. He's still a very young puppy and is anxious to learn and please his humans.

Because Rufus is so young and playful, the ideal home for him would be with another dog close to his size and age so that he could learn proper puppy manners and have a buddy to rough-house with. A fenced-in yard would be a great bonus so that he can take his sweet time running, sniffing, going potty, etc. before he has to come in. The fenced yard is not a deal-breaker as long as he is taken on frequent walks. He would also enjoy having children to play with - as long as they were older than 10 years old and understand that he still needs to learn about being a well-behaved puppy.


To date we've spent $0 on Rufus's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $100.00 in donations.
Please donate!

My eye hurts. Please help me get it fixed

I know I am a sweet girl
Florida
Saki

This is Saki. She is 8 years old and a too chubby 16.5 pounds. Saki is a Shih Tzu/Yorkie Mix, a little Shorkie. She is being fostered in Orlando, FL.

INITIAL BIO 06/30/2018: Saki is a sweet, affectionate, friendly little girl who spent almost 2 weeks in the shelter waiting for someone to come and get her and take her home. When her family did not show up, United Yorkie Rescue showed up to rescue this little girlie. Although Saki only just arrived at her foster home, her foster mom already can see what a sweetheart she is. She loves toys and drags them all over the house. She gets along great with the other dog in the family and already loves her foster mom. Saki is probably about 3 to 4 pounds overweight which is causing her a little trouble on walks, but her foster mom already has her on a diet and is making sure she gets some exercise.

Saki seems to love car rides. She walks nicely on a leash, though her walks are short since she needs to lose a few pounds and it affects her ability to walk any distance. She seems to be house-trained and will also use a pee-pee pad. There is so much more to know about this special girl as she continues to settle into her foster home.

Saki has some medical issues that will be addressed during her vet appointment on Monday July 2nd. Her most pressing issue is her right eye, which is currently bulging and in need of immediate care. She will also need a dental. She has a small mammary growth on her right nipple, which may or may not need to be surgically removed. We will hopefully have some answers on Monday when she sees her vet.

We won't be sure when Saki will be available for adoption until her vet sees her. It is very possible that Saki may have to have her right eye removed. Please help us with any donations you can spare for Saki. This sweet girl has already been let down by people after lingering in the shelter for 2 weeks. We have to show her now that people do care and that we will be there for her to make sure she is loved and taken care of.


To date we've spent $550.12 on Saki's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.
Please donate!

Life is Looking Up for Sophie

What a Sweetheart
Florida
Sophie

Sophie is 9 years old and weighs 7.6 lbs. Sadly, Sweet Sophie tested positive for heartworm disease. She is being fostered in Palm Coast, FL.

THANK YOU TO SOPHIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Karry Rogers, Lynne Turner, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, John Sauser, Debbie Driscoll

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

Here's what Sophie had to say recently:

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

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

PLEASE NOTE the following special circumstances:

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

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

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

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

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

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

Sophie had this to say recently:

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

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

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

PLEASE NOTE the following special circumstances:

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

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

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

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

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

PLEASE NOTE the following special circumstances:

All of these dogs were terribly neglected and medically-needy and were all living in an unsafe, unsanitary and over-crowded home with very little human interaction. All of these dogs appear to be very sweet and docile, even though many of them may have hidden medical issues that we are not yet aware of.

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

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

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


To date we've spent $1364.18 on Sophie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $343.65 in donations.

Miloh is Looking for his Forever Family
Georgia
Miloh

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

THANK YOU TO MILOH'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Jennifer Eusner

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

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

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

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

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

He also loves his baths and will jump into a lake if allowed! Real water boy! He even enjoys riding on a 4 wheeler with Foster Dad, when he is inside the house he is Foster Moms best boy! Miloh is housebroken but wears a belly band indoors because sometimes he can get overexcited and pee. He is familiar with a doggie door and will use one.

Maggie May
Indiana
Maggie May

Meet the gorgeous Maggie May. Maggie May is a 4 year old, 4.5 lb. little girl being fostered in Greenfield, IN. She needs an MRI to diagnose a neurological issue and won't be available for adoption for 2-3 months until we address the cause of her problem. Maggie May cannot be adopted outside the state of Indiana.

THANK YOU TO MAGGIE MAY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Denise Fantetti, Darlene Schultz, Sandra Wendt, Raygan Stone, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Stephanie Groves, Stephanie Groves, Gail Sherman, Melissa Chiera, Karry Rogers, Angie Cagle, Sandra Wendt, Rebecca Root, Noreen Deckard

Update Bio. 04/11/18. Hi. Maggie May and I thought we would give you an update on how she is going doing. We just returned from spending the winter in the sunny south. After the neuro tests, it was determined that she has a lesion on the left side of her brain. We are still adjusting her medication.

She also saw a dentist and had 10 rotted teeth removed and a good cleaning. Maggie May could not chew her food and she regurgitated everything she ate. She now is on a diet of soft food. She is a big eater and gaining her weight back.

Oh yes, she has a new haircut, which makes it easier on her, because she doesn’t like the Groomer.

Maggie May is a special needs girl, and probably always will be. She is beginning to show more of her personality to us.

We will check in again soon.

Updated Bio: 1/13/17. Maggie May is doing well in her foster home. She isn’t a cuddly little girl yet, but she does love to sit and have rubs on her head and back. She loves dinner time, napping, riding in the car and likes to keep her fur brother and sister in line. She enjoys exploring the house and follows her foster mom and dad around everywhere. She certainly does not enjoy going outside in this cold Indiana weather.

Maggie May has had a busy first 30 days in foster care. She came to UYR with information of having a fall in January 2017. Upon receiving her original vet records, we found that this sweet little girl has many other issues and no testing was done. Maggie May circles constantly only to the left, and may have diminished sight in her right eye. She has regurgitation issues and has been taken off hard kibble and put on soft, canned, pate food. This has been a temporary solution to her eatingsuccessfully. Maggie May has weakness in her hind legs, and loses her balance frequently. Maggie saw the dogtor and is scheduled for a dental and several extractions on January 17.

We had three specialty consults this week, and she spent the night at the hospital. She is scheduled for an MRI and spinal tap on January 24, to see exactly what neurological issues she has. We also had a consultation with an orthopedic doctor who believes that she has luxating patellas and possibly a torn ACL in her right leg. These issues will be addressed at a later date. Maggie May also met with an internist regarding her digestive issues, and will have an xray and other tests in the future.

We visited the groomer this week and had her hair shortened to make care easier on her. She did not like the grooming process at all.

We are so thankful that she was rescued when she was, so that we can provide the care and medical attention that she so desperately needs. Maggie May’s testing will be very expensive, but will help her to be healthy, pain free and hopefully ready for her furever family. If your heart leads you to donate to help defray the very high costs of her tests and treatments, it would so greatly be appreciated. Just a few dollars from a lot of people will help her. If you cannot donate, please say a little prayer for her.

It has been determined that when Maggie May is ready to be adopted she will only be adopted in the Indiana, to a pet free, adult only home.

Initial Bio. 12/15/17. Please welcome sweet Maggie May. She has had her entire world turned upside down when she was surrendered by her original owner. Maggie is 4 years, 9 months old and weighs 4.5 lbs. She is very timid and shy, and appears to be potty trained. We don't know a lot about her as she has only been with her foster mom for only 24 hrs. She will have her vet check appointment the first of next week. We do know that she had a fall a few months ago and is still on a medication. She is up-to-date with her shots and she has been micro-chipped and spayed. It will be hard not to fall in love with this little angel.

If you are interested in this beauty, just follow the link below to complete an application for adoption.

Sally Sue
Iowa
Sally Sue

Meet the beautiful Sally. Sally is sweet,12-year-old Yorkie girl weighing 9 lbs. She is being fostered in IA.

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

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

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

Wrigley
Iowa
Wrigley

Wrigley -Iowa is an adorable 1.5 year old, 4.5 pound little Yorkie Pomeranian mix male being fostered in Central IA.

Initial Bio 06/11/18: Wrigley is an 1 1/2 year old high-energy male Yomeranian (Yorkie Pomeranian Mix). He requires a home with a secure fenced-in yard - no exceptions, as he is a flight risk due to his incredible speed.

Wrigley will also need an active owner/family who is willing to take time to play ball with him, take him for walks and train him.

Wrigley's journey began in Chicago with an owner that unfortunately did not have the bandwidth to spend enough hours providing him with basic training, including housetraining. As a result Wrigley spent many of his hours as a puppy in a crate, and not being well socialized. In fairness to Wrigley, his first owner re-homed him to a kind friend in IN to give Wrigley a better quality of life. Unfortunately Wrigley's high energy and lack of training proved to be overwhelming and traumatizing for the new owner's senior dog. Wrigley's second owner reached out to United Yorkie Rescue with a plea to help find Wrigley with a perfect home.

The best home for Wrigley would be one with an active family, where someone is home on a regular basis and is an experienced owner. The new owners must be willing to continue working with Wrigley to ensure he receives consistent basic training and housetraining, regular walks and doing what Wrigley loves best - playing ball. Enrolling Wrigley in a basic training class would be highly recommended.

Currently Wrigley is being fostered in a home in Central Iowa. Wrigley's foster family is working with him on basic obedience and housetraining. Additionally the foster family is working on food etiquette with Wrigley, eating more slowly and chewing food and to stop stealing food from his foster sisters. He is very affectionate and enjoys playing with "well behaved" children and young dogs.

The new owner must be willing to continue working with Wrigley to master housetraining and basic obedience skills. This will take time and patience, with praise and reward. The ideal home for Wrigley would be one in which his new owner(s) are home most of the day. Wrigley was tearfully surrendered by his previous owners due to not being home enough. Wrigley was having to spend too many hours being crated, waiting for her owners to come home. Wrigley thrives on human contact and is happiest playing as he has a tremendous amount of energy.

Due to Wrigley's unstable home life in a short period of time IL to IN yo IA, Wrigley's foster family will be highly selective to ensure he finds a suitable permanent forever home. Preference for adoption would be within the Central IA region.

Adoption Pending

To date we've spent $148.00 on Wrigley's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Sweet,beautiful Lexie
Kentucky
Lexie

Lexie has a PENDING ADOPTION! Lexie is an 8-9 (estimated) year-old, 9-pound Yorkie girl being fostered in Elizabethtown, KY.

THANK YOU TO LEXIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Bonnie Vaupel, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Teresa Beament, Tony Heath, Irene and Peter Havas in memory of Buddy, Vanessa and Pepe, Marciela Berner, Greg Phipps

Updated Bio 1/18/18:

Lexi has finished the first phase of the heartworm treatment. She is scheduled for her first injection on February 2. Secretly, foster Mom is worried about trying to keep her activity down to an absolute minimum once she has the injections.

With all the snow we have had here lately, foster Mom has discovered that Lexi is not to keen on the wet and cold snow. She is so cute ... she lifts her legs as if she is going to be frozen on spot. She is getting better about going potty. She is slowly starting to use the puppy pad more when foster parents are at work. She has a subtle signal to let us know she needs to go out, so foster parents aren’t always picking up on it. Foster Mom is wondering if she could be trained to ring a bell or bark as we need a more obvious potty signal.

Lexi is a sweet, loving girl, but there are signs that she has been abused. She cowers when we try to pick her up and has snapped at us when scared. We are trying to discern what in our behavior has caused this sweet girl to be fearful. On the other hand, she absolutely loves squeaky toys. As a Christmas gift, foster mom received three dragons. Lexi was in Doggy Play Paradise. She hoarded the toys from her foster siblings and played and played with them, until she managed to destroy the squeaky—apparently the object of the play.

Lexi loves to sit on foster Mom’s lap, or at least next to her, and she enjoys sleeping in our bed.

12/4/17 Initial Bio

Sweet Lexie landed in a shelter after being picked up as a stray by animal control. Sadly, this precious girl has tested positive for heart worm disease and must now undergo the unpleasant and lengthy treatment to rid her tiny body of the organism that would destroy it. For this reason, Lexie will not be adoptable until spring of 2018. She is such a sweet girl and deserves better than she has known. She is settling in well in her foster home and getting along nicely with her fur-siblings. So far she is proving to be a sweet, smart and loving little girl with the most ADORABLE EARS! Please stay tuned for updates and consider donating towards her care by clicking the PayPal button below.

Pooh Bear is Looking for a Fresh Start
Kentucky
Pooh Bear

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

Initial Bio 7/17/18

Pooh Bear has had a hard life up until now. He was loved, but his former owner had some serious life challenges that were just too much to deal with on their own. Pooh Bear came from a home where his owner struggled with mental health issues including addiction, animal hoarding, poverty and legal problems. Pooh Bear and several felines needed placement in a hurry when his former owner was incarcerated. Pooh loved his owner and his owner loved him but life's challenges were just too much and now Pooh Bear is safe with United Yorkie Rescue and looking for a fresh start. We were so happy to bring this sweet soul into rescue. Right now Pooh Bear is pretty scared and everything is totally new. He has lived his entire life with a house full of felines and has lived on a diet exclusively made up of cat food. He was the only dog among a bunch of kitty friends so he ate what everyone else did. Now we are slowly transitioning him to a healthy canine diet. He was also badly infested with fleas and his poor skin is in rough shape. His face is just adorable but the rest of his body is missing lots of hair. The good news is he is already being treated and he is now flea-free. Pooh should heal up just fine with time, medical care, love, and good nutrition and soon he will SHINE like a new penny! If you would like to help Pooh Bear get his fresh start in life by helping toward his medical care then click the PayPal button below. Or if you feel like you are Pooh's perfect FUREVER match then apply to adopt him today!


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

Rocky

Rocky is an 12 week old, 1.25 pound yorkie puppy being fostered in Covington, KY.

THANK YOU TO ROCKY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Charlotte Robinson, Susan Reeves, Elizabeth Soule, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Brenda Sorrells, Tobie Wadsworth, Angie Cagle, Colleen Fox, Audra Stigman, Gretchen Holseth, Patricia Cohen, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Dawn Ebert, Nancy Farley, Jeanette Howell, David Galli, Shelly Adams, Karry Rogers, Sandy Pagnotta, Jane Weese, Christine Daigle, Jeffrey Merrell, Donna Williams, Suzan Robison, Tracey Merrick, Tony Heath, Teresa Beament, Cindy Mitchell-Clark, Amy Chernault, Stephanie Frey, Julie Stewart, Julie Stewart, Bonnie Vaupel, Trula Montgomery, Aleyna Tusa, Cheryl Helley, John Sauser, Terri Worley

Update 7/8/18

Look who is feeling better! It is puppy Rocky who is under the ever watchful eye of his nurse and foster Mom who is very happy to see Rocky responding to treatment. Rocky is eating and drinking and keeping all of his prescription medications down and has even been spotted stealing kibble here and there from his fur siblings. His energy is much improved but he definitely still sleeps way more than your average puppy and he still continues to have very frequent bowel movements. He is going in for a recheck tomorrow and we are hoping his weight is up and that the Vet believes we are on the right track. Rocky wants to thank everyone who has supported him with donations, positive thoughts, prayers and shares and asks that you keep believing in him and his progress.

Update Bio 7/3/18

Update on Rocky. Precious Rocky continues to fight. Just a while ago he was released from the hospital to the care of his foster Mom who is a human RN and has Rocky under very close watch. He has eaten a bit, is on multiple medications and is still very lethargic. His test for a liver shunt proved to be negative so we still are not sure what is causing Rocky to be so sick. One theory is that he has a condition called lymphangiectasia; a disease that causes inflammation of the intestines and protein leakage from the gut. The only way to confirm this diagnosis is with anesthesia and an endoscopy but Rocky is currently too frail to undergo this type of procedure. His Vet is treating him as if he has this condition and we will be monitoring his response to this treatment. Rocky is not out of the woods by a long shot so please continue to share his story, send positive thoughts and prayers and consider a donation towards his mounting medical bills if you are able. Thank you for your support; Rocky thanks you too and is dreaming of a day when he can be whole and healed.

Initial Bio 6/30/18

Precious Rocky is aptly named because he is fighting the fight of his life. Rocky came to us very sick. Our foster mom met Rocky's owners at the Veterinarian's office to bring him into rescue and it was not a minute too soon. The Vet said Rocky wouldn't have survived the day without immediate care and he was transferred immediately to intensive care. He has been on supportive care for over 24 hours and his team is working hard to try to figure out exactly what is making Rocky so very ill. Today various tests were run and we are waiting for answers. Unfortunately answers to Rocky's complex case come at a very high price and we have already spent $2000 on his care. Rocky is too sick to leave the hospital and will require additional hospital days. Once we know what Rocky's problems are he will need treatment and all of this means mounting medical bills. To all who have donated, shared his story and said prayers, Thank You! For those who are able, please consider making a donation because Rocky needs your help RIGHT NOW. And everyone, please help by sharing his story because our tiny, 1 pound puppy boy wants to LIVE! If Rocky were able, he would give each of you puppy kisses and tail wags to say a special Thank You for the life-saving care he has received thus far, thanks to your support and generosity.


To date we've spent $2645.16 on Rocky's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1951.00 in donations.

Max

Max

Meet Max. Max is a 6-year-old, 16 pound Yorkie boy residing in MA.

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

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

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

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

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

Tigger
Massachusetts
Tigger

Meet Tigger. Tigger is a 8-year old, 6 pound Yorkie boy residing in MA.

THANK YOU TO TIGGER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Trula Montgomery

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

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

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

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

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

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


To date we've spent $470.40 on Tigger's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $20.00 in donations.

Kermit
Ohio
Kermit

Kermit is a sweet 8 year old, 10 pound girl (yes girl :-) who is being fostered in Cleveland, OH.

THANK YOU TO KERMIT'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Trula Montgomery

Update 6/6/18: Kermit is doing well with other dogs as long as she is fed separately. She is growing her hair back except for a few spots which might never fully fill in. She has a ton of energy and loves to go for walks. Kermit is not housetrained. She will hold it during the day when she is in her room (bathroom) but seems to have a problem when she gets over excited. At night she wears diapers and for the most part they will be dry in the morning.

She will do best in a home where someone is with her most of the time and can help with house training. She loves to sit out in the sun so she has t shirts to wear to prevent her getting sunburned. She is on a chicken/grain free food to help with any allergies and she really loves food. All treats and food have to be locked up safe :) to prevent her "helping herself". She does not beg at the table. She loves to sit on the couch or chair with you and just chill. Kermit will need a home with a fenced yard.

Updated Bio. 01/22/18. Meet Kermit. She is a GIRL and 8 years old. Her owner was unable to take care of her any longer do to a illness. She is getting along well with my dogs but does not get along well with big dogs. I think she will do well in a single dog home with NO small animals (birds, rabbits, etc.) She loves kids. When Kermit came to use she had no hair on her back. We have changed her food ( NUTRO LID ) and we think that might have been the issue but we are still working on making sure of the reason why all the hair loss. She is scheduled for a dental on February 12th. She has severe anxiety, so it would be great for her to go to a home where someone is home with her for the day and night. She is not 100% potty trained so we are working on that. She sleeps in bed with us for most of the night, but we do find her sometimes sleeping with our 15 year old dog all cuddled up. We will update you on her progress with the hair loss.

Initial Bio. 1/3/18. Sweet Kermit came into rescue on January 2. She has some health issues that we are trying to address. She had no hair on her back and her stomach was bloated. Her foster mom switched to a grain-free limited ingredient dog food and the bloating is gone and her hair is growing back. She saw the vet today and has been put on an antihistamine/steroid and antibiotic which hopefully will clear up her remaining skin problems. She'll have bloodwork done and once all looks good with that, we'll proceed with vaccinations. Sweet Kermit does have some anxiety issues which we hope will improve once she has settled into foster care.


To date we've spent $576.55 on Kermit's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $20.00 in donations.

Avery Rose is Expecting!
Tennessee
Avery Rose

Avery Rose is a sweet 1-year-old, 7-pound Morkie (Maltese-Yorkie mix being fostered in Nashville, TN.

THANK YOU TO AVERY ROSE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Michelle Stair, Lynda Slipetz, Trula Montgomery, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Karry Rogers

7/14 update

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

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

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

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

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


To date we've spent $0 on Avery Rose's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $105.00 in donations.

Adorable Buddy Boy

Buddy Boy wants to Play!
Tennessee
Buddy

Buddy Boy is an adorable 2-year-old, 11 pound Yorkie boy being fostered in Murfreesboro, TN.

Updated Bio 6/28/18.

Buddy Boy has been in his foster home for a couple of weeks now and we have a better feel for his needs.   Buddy is a very sweet dog who loves to play HARD!  He is very much still a puppy and he is full of youthful energy and vigor.  Unfortunately for Buddy, his former owners did not give him the proper guidance so Buddy has never really had a “pack leader” other than himself until now.   He is just now, at age two learning what “No” means and how to be a canine “good citizen.”   There is not a mean bone in this boy’s body……he just needs to learn.   So he is working on learning what it means to be a well-mannered Yorkie in his foster home.  This means he is un-learning a few habits that were not addressed in his puppyhood like “It’s not okay to jump on people and play nibble on their hands even if you REALLY want them to play with you!”   Slowly Buddy is learning that life is better with a few ground rules.  Buddy needs a human who has patience and time to reinforce his learning and keep up his training with consistency until it becomes habit.  We think Buddy’s ideal home would be one where his person is home a lot to work with him.   Older kids age 10 and over would be good expecially if they are active because Buddy has a TON of energy that needs an outlet.  An active adult who likes to go for frequent walks and a fenced in back yard would also be a plus.  Buddy loves to sleep with his person and when he isn’t being his wild puppy self he loves to snuggle and get pets and belly rubs.  He loves playing with his foster brother but Buddy is much younger and plays rougher than his fur-sibling so another dog that is Buddy’s size and age might be a great match for both of them.  Buddy’s biggest need is for an owner who is patient and committed to his continued learning and training so that he can become the PAWFECT PUP he was meant to be.

Initial Bio 6/14/18

Meet Buddy Boy, our newest Tennessee heart-throb! Unbelievably, this precious guy was left at a shelter by his former owners. On his shelter turn-in form Buddy Boy’s owners said he is great with kids, other dog and cat friendly, playful, sweet, submissive, crate trained, leash trained and has no health or behavioral issues. I don’t know about you folks but in our book this means that Buddy-Boy is pretty much a PERFECT dog! Poor Buddy Boy must have been wondering what he did wrong to land in the shelter but he didn’t have to stay there long because when we got a call about him his UYR guardian angel went and scooped him up like a Momma bird who’s chick fell from its nest. No way was this sweet boy going to spend a single night in doggie jail! What’s more is that Buddy Boy is up to date on his care and ready to find his perfect forever home. At 11 pounds, Buddy Boy is the perfect “fun-size” pup and would be a great family dog to a home with school aged or older children. In fact, he’d be a great dog for just about anyone. Buddy Boy has just landed in his foster home but so far he has been an angel and has been on a walk with his neighbor dogs and is getting along great with his foster siblings. Stay tuned for updates but if you believe you are Buddy Boy’s perfect forever human get your application in soon because this PAWFECT POOCH will not last long!


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

Scrappy
Tennessee
Scrappy

Scrappy is an 11-year old, 5 pound senior Yorkie fellow being fostered in Nashville, TN

THANK YOU TO SCRAPPY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Trula Montgomery

Update 6/17/18

Scrappy is looking for the perfect forever family! He needs a family that understands that while he is an adorable, playful pup, he is also an older guy that has had it rough. Scrappy was rescued from a shelter 10 years ago, but unfortunately his family was unable to care for him, so he ended up back in the same shelter. He wasn’t there for long, because his nice foster family took him in! Since then, he has been enjoying playful games of fetch, belly rubs and lots of treats. He gets extra treats, because he’s still underweight. Scrappy is easily startled by noises, including, but not limited to: the washing machine, thunderstorms and fireworks. He needs a family that is patient and understanding. Scrappy doesn’t always do a good job of letting his foster mom know he needs to go out to potty, but that’s okay, because she understands accidents happen. Scrappy loves cuddles, naps and giving kisses! Scrappy is going to see a doggy to ophthalmologist soon, because he has corneal edema. If you are interested in learning more about Scrappy reach to his foster mom at NashvilleTNYorkie@gmail.com

Update 05/18/2018

Hey folks, Scrappy here I wanted to tell you about my adventures this past week. My foster mom and dad went on vacation and unfortunately I could not go with them… BUT I got to have a vacation of my very own. I went to stay with another UYR foster mom and dad. We had so much fun. I got to meet all kinds of new people and animals. I was treated like a Royal… just call me Sir Scrappy… they have lots of furbabies and I made friends with all of them…. Bowser the basset hound also Harley, Roxie, Millie and Hope all yorkies like me. We had so much fun… we got to run in the yard roll in the grass and lounge on the deck in the sun. We went to a kids baseball game and lots of people were there I was very well behaved and all the kids wanted to pet me and love me that was really cool… I even chased a mouse… who needs a cat with me around LOL… BUT what I really want is a family of my very own. If you think I would be the perfect fit for your family please complete an application. I have lots of love to give and we could have so much fun together.

Initial Bio 4/7/18

Meet Scrappy our latest senior heart throb. Scrappy was adopted from a shelter 10 years ago but sadly returned to the same shelter when his owner could no longer care for him. He was in rough shape; a matted mess and badly in need of a dental. Scrappy had to be shaved to the skin to rid him of his mats but in a month or so he will look like the beautiful boy he already is on the inside. After a much needed dental he now has fresh breath and is very kissable. He is also way too skinny at 5 pounds and should be closer to 7 pounds at a healthy weight. So far this boy is sweet, playful and acts nothing like an 11 year old dog. He goes outside to the bathroom and is getting along with his fur siblings. Scrappy has chronic dry eye and will need eye drops for the rest of his life. He has just arrived in his foster home so stay tuned for updates!


To date we've spent $590.91 on Scrappy's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $20.00 in donations.

Meet our sad, little BJ. BJ is an 11-year-old, 9.5 lb. yorkie being fostered in Southeast TX.

THANK YOU TO BJ'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Trula Montgomery

UPDATE BIO. 06/27/18. Hello everyone! BJ here. I have been doing very well. I am a healthy guy who is sweet and loving in my foster home. I am loving being here, but I am also ready for my forever home.

I love being around people, and I get so excited when my foster family comes home each day. I love being the center of attention, and sitting beside my people. At night, I start out sleeping on the bed with my Foster parents and end up in my bed on the floor during the night.

Searching for a forever home where I am loved and understood...

Update Bio. 04/09/18. Hi everyone! BJ here, and I am loving my foster home and family. Although I had a tough transition because I missed my Dad, I am settled in now. I went to the Doctor and he pulled 17 teeth and neutered me all at the same time☹. I am now healed and ready for my forever home. I like other dogs as long as they don’t get in my face, but to be honest, I would prefer to be an only fur child. I am potty trained, and I am a lap baby, especially when my Foster Mom is working at her desk. I have such a loving personality, but I can be a bit feisty at times. Can't wait to meet my new Mom or Dad!!!

Initial Bio. 03/05/18. Meet BJ. BJ comes to United Yorkie Rescue via owner surrender. BJ’s Dad moved, and couldn’t take BJ with him. As you can imagine, BJ is sad and misses his Dad. BJ is 9.5 pounds, and 11 years old. More information to come when Foster Mom gets to know him a little better.


To date we've spent $627.51 on BJ's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $25.00 in donations.

Bridget
Texas
Bridget

Bridget is a sweet 9 year old, 9 pound Yorkie girl who is being fostered in Lancaster, TX.

THANK YOU TO BRIDGET'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Valerie Bond

UPDATE BIO. 06/29/18. Bridget was adopted (saved) at a flea market by a loving family in April so we have no history prior to then.

From day 1 she was very partial to her new dad and refused to interact with her mom. It continued until she did not want to come inside or eat if her dad was not home. He worked long days and she became increasingly depressed. They loved her but felt she would be happier in another home. Within 2 days of arriving in her foster home, she repeated the same behavior. Although her foster mom has made every effort to make her feel welcome and safe, Bridget is only happy when foster dad is home. She greets him at the door every day jumping and looking for love. Bridget runs from window to window to watch him work in the yard. She cuddles up next to him on the couch and at night she will only sleep next to his side of the bed.

Bridget is the happiest little girl when she is with her "dad". Bridget is looking for a loving forever dad to cuddle with and love for the rest of her life. She will be an amazing and loyal companion to the right stay at home or single guy.

She is a very healthy little girl who has been spayed and had a good dental recently. She is housetrained and very gentle. Bridget is good with other dogs but we feel she would be at her best if any only or maybe one of two.

We know the right home is out there and Bridget is willing to wait for it. If you are interested in further information about Bridget please reach out to her foster family

Update 6/4/18: Bridget had her spay procedure today and a dental too. She came through with flying colors and will be recovering over the next week.

Initial Bio 5/25/18: Welcome Bridget to UYR. She is a very sweet 9 yr old girl who is truly looking for love. Bridget was rescued from a backyard breeder who was selling her at a flea market. She very quickly became attached to her new dad. She followed him everywhere and could always be found right next to him. Unfortunately, her dad works and cannot give Bridget the time she deserves. She is a very sweet and loving girl, she is calm and loves nothing more than to be next to her person. She will be spayed in the next few days however is in great health. Bridget will be looking for someone who is home much of the time. She does not have separation anxiety however desires to make up for lost time in the attention department. She has spent her life with very little affection and no love but all of that changes now. She will need someone with time, love and the willingness to be patient with her she learns to accept all of what she has missed out on. Bridget is 9lbs of pure sweetness. If you have a place in your heart and home for her, please reach out to her foster family at yorkielove0409@yahoo.com or visit our website.

Cooper
Texas
Cooper

Cooper is an adorable little Yorkie boy who is being fostered in Lancaster, TX.

THANK YOU TO COOPER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Lynne Turner, Teresa Beament, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Dana Barao, Karry Rogers, Leslie Corbell, Pam Newell, Mary Cronin, Nhung Le, Teresa Beament, Sandy Pagnotta, Mary Cowley

UPDATE BIO. 06/23/18. As most of you all know, Cooper had 4lbs of tumors removed from his frail body. We have received the biopsies and he is cancer free!! We have a mixture of many different tumors, thankfully though, they are at a very low risk and all tissues surrounding these are good. We had to go under anesthesia again yesterday afternoon because his penis would not go back into its sleeve from the night before. This poor little man has really been through it. Although he looks pretty rough at the moment, I cannot wait to see his transformation.

Next week he will have the drainage tubes removed and the suture that is closing the sheath to his penis. The following week, we will remove all the sutures from his surgery, and he will stay all day for blood testing as his blood work prior to this surgery was way off on levels.

Thank you for all of your continued prayers and support!!

UPDATE BIO. 06/16/2018. My mind has been on this sweet little guy all day today. Tomorrow, Cooper goes for his third tumor surgery and this one could be very dangerous... even more so than the 3lb tumor we have already taken with some of his spleen. This baby is just the most loving, sweetest guy I have ever fostered.

As you can see in the pics, his stomach is carrying another huge tumor along with all the other small ones that will be removed. If possible, United Yorkie Rescue could sure use your help. If you can possibly donate, please go to www.uyr.us, and on the home page at the bottom click "donate"... these babies lives matter, and because of you we are saving them... bless you!

UPDATE BIO. 06/04/18. Cooper is still recouping from his surgery and on Monday he will go again for 6 additional tumors to be removed, a huge lipoma on the entire right side of his body, and to finally have the diseased rotten teeth extracted as well. His initial report from his 3lb tumor was good... not cancer!!

Although this little guy looks a little rough, he will be such a gorgeous little guy once he is healed.. I cannot wait to see this transformation! I am currently fostering and caring for his medical issues. Once healed and flourishing, he will be fostered by Lynne Patterson Turner, where he will be spoiled to amazing health!

Cooper loves to play, is so loving and is just wonderful with all dogs, cats and people. He will be an amazing Yorkie for someone's loving home!

Update 6/1/18: Hooray, we received good news on the biopsy of the 3 pound "tumor". It isn't malignant! Next, we have to remove the tumor on Cooper's side, so please keep praying for this sweet little guy.

UPDATE BIO. 5/16/2018: Cooper is now home recouping from the massive near 3lb tumor removed. This sweetie is extremely emaciated with every spinal bone raised and every bone very prominent. He is currently on a high calorie diet and I cannot wait to see how this little diamond in the rough shows his true shine! He's such a good sweet, lovable boy too. In spite of his pain with surgery, has never had an accident in the home. H he absolutely LOVES toys, and gets along with all the dogs, cat and humans in the home. Please continue to share this baby's story and if possible United Yorkie Rescue www.uyr.us could sure use your help! I thank you and bless you for loving the rescues!!

UPDATE BIO> 5/15/2018: Cooper had his surgery and the vet removed a nearly 3lb tumor and managed to save some of the spleen! Various little skin tumors were removed as well. This tumor is on its way to A&M lab for a biopsy and we hope to have results in next week. Poor Cooper is in a lot of pain and will stay overnight for antibiotics and pain management. If good in the am, he will come home. In 2 weeks we will go in for surgery once again and the huge lipoma, that takes up his whole right side will be removed, along with some other skin tumors and we will address his along with his nasty teeth as well. Keep those prayers coming... they are working!

Initial Bio. 5/14/2018: Hi everyone, meet precious Cooper. This incredibly adorable little guy sure could use some very strong prayers while we work on his issues! Rescued from the shelter that reached out to us at United Yorkie Rescue Monday morning as a stray, one of our wonderful members had spent about 30 minutes playing with this baby while paperwork was completed and as we found he is just the sweetest little man ever!! Besides total neglect seen everywhere, his stomach is so distended with an enormous mass on his spleen that must be about 2lbs, along with a lipoma that's about a pound of weight in itself on his side. He was rushed to my vet and will stay for emergency surgery to address these tumors in the am. This will be a very dangerous surgery, so please let us help him win his life back. Please keep this angel in your prayers this morning as they do emergency surgery around 8am. Thank you everyone ❤

Update Bio. 05/14/18. Hank is doing fairly well. He will get his stiches out this week. We were originally on 6 different meds and have gone down to 4. His leg is still pretty painful but he's getting better each day. In 8 wks we will go back to A&M for I hope his last surgery. This will entail removing the plate and hopefully we will have bone growth at this time! Emotionally, sadly, Hank is still having a very hard time with separatiom. It took me months to start to fix that... I'm back at the beginning and have him back on Prosac as well. This sweet baby is just so loving. He deserves his furever happy and I will be certain he gets that, especially with people that love him like you ❤. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.

5/2/18: Hank pupdate: Hank was seen by the specialists at Texas A&M Vet Hospital and underwent extensive testing again especially due to some Neuro issues, bladder issues and further evaluation of his leg which is very complicated. Hank's femur was shattered in 7 segments... so we have 7 screws along with a plate. The bone around the middle screws is disintegrating. This is either from the body saying we no longer need this bone since we have this plate to provide support, or his bone is just not rejuvenating. Sadly, trying to fix this might take 2 stages. We had 3 options, but bottom line we are choosing to remove the 3 middle screws, pack in bone generating material while keeping the plate secured at the top and the bottom. Also, the surgeon will try to fix the patella. If it's at all possible they may try to remove this larger plate and attach a smaller plate. If not, we will be looking at another surgery again! Surgery will be Thursday morning and Hank will be there until at least Saturday. This is so hard on him emotionally... his separation anxiety is the saddest I have ever witnessed. We'll all be very anxious to get him past this next hurdle and get him home where he can rest and be with foster mom.

Update 3/30/18: From a body full of bruises and broken bones to now. We still have one more hurdle with this adorable little guy and it will require breaking his leg for the final fix. This is almost unbearable for me to fathom after all this sweet boy had been through. Hanks next surgery will be the costliest one after all of his medical and surgeries to date. The ortho center at Texas A&M refer to Hank as a unique case. They will need to remove the plate and screws, rebreak his leg where the deformity is, place a smaller appliance on, repair his locked patella and torn ACL. UYR is looking at a cost of up to $5000. I'm asking, maybe pleading at this point, as I personally have 4 medical rescues in my care, but this baby boy is worth every penny.

Hank still holds emotional scars with his fear of separation, but after all this little man had endured, he is just the absolute most loving baby ever. He will eventually be someone's pride and joy that will be rewarded back with so much love. Please, please donate, share and pray for this little boy. As always, thank you and bless you all!

Update Bio. 03/08/18. We were so blessed to have had the opportunity to get Hank to Texas A&M Small Animal Hospital. There were many more players involved, but I wanted to thank Dr Grimes (Internal Medicine)and Tierney for their constant dedication in diagnosing and helping us get answers for this sweet boy.

Bladder: we are still waiting for bile acids results but we do know Hank does still does have a resistant UTI. Cultures are still growing so in the next few days he will be placed on the proper antibiotic to address this issue. We may have a sphincter issue that is not responding properly causing his dripping, but we believe that by keeping him on Proin along with getting a grip on this UTI maybe his solution. There is a defect in his bladder, but they do not believe it is necessary to do the surgery.

Siezures: We will start Kepra

Leg: Hanks patella cannot be moved and is at a 4 out of 4 so will require surgery. His leg has also healed wrong, so the orthopedic thinks we will more than likely have to remove the plate and screws, rebreak the leg, and put a different plate on in its place. This breaks my heart of course.

I'm waiting for an email regarding his discharge and plans and will address again but i wanted to let you all know about his findings and that we finally have answers. Prayers for this little abused baby ❤😔

Bio Update 01/27/18. UNITED YORKIE RESCUE and I need help and prayers for these two precious United Yorkie Rescue boys that have been in the limelight of our site recently and in the past. Next week, I have both Hank and Jasper going for major surgery.

Hank, as you may recall, was horribly abused resulting in a shattered femur and a bladder injury. We are going back into surgery due to his lameness and bladder issues. His surgery will require removing his plates and screws and repairing his ACL and patella. The surgeon is also going to do a contrast study of his bladder while is under and hopefully repair the bladder or possibly have to create a new opening so that this little boy can urinate without the struggles he is having. He was severely abused at the hands of an evil man, and this poor angel has endured so much emotional trauma, as well. Hank’s surgery will be very expensive, but this sweet baby deserves his life without pain.

These are two of the most deserving little boys in our rescue, and I am asking you to please donate, share and pray for these sweet boys. I thank you from the bottom of my heart and I know these babies if they could would thank you as well. Bless you all!

Update 11/18/17:

So much has been going on in this precious boys’ life that it’s time to update! We have reached the 8 week mark since Hank’s surgery to repair his shattered femur, and removal of stones that entered the bladder due to severe abusive trauma. We still have no use of his leg and Hank is dependent on belly bands due to constant incontinence. We have met with 2 vets and have received information about what is happening with this sweet baby and have come up with a plan for a final fix…God willing!

In repairing Hanks femur with the plate, Hank has developed a Grade 5 out 5 lameness with drawer sign and a patella luxation. We need to give his femur at least 30 more days for bone growth then go in to remove the plate and perform lateral suture of the cruciate ligament (ACL) and patella repair. We will also if necessary repair any blockage or stricture involving the ureter.

In the meantime, we will see the vet and perform some tests to analyze what is going on with this baby’s bladder so if surgery is needed, it will be performed all at once so as not to put this angel through another procedure. This could include a contrast study of the bladder, but if this particular test is necessary, it will also be done prior to his surgical repair to his leg and bladder issues AGAIN!

Emotionally, Hank is healing well I think. He no longer cries hysterically because I have left the room and I am out of sight…he whines softly lol. He is truly the most loving little man. He literally rolls his little body over and pushes his body and head into you so hard because he cannot get close enough!

I literally cry, like I’m doing now, just writing this knowing this little guy must go through this surgery again. I feel at times he must think I’m causing his pain, when this was all at the hand of a monster and all I just want for him is to be pain free and healed.

I ask you to keep him in your prayers and pray for good bone growth n these next 30 days. I also ask you to consider once again supporting him through a donation through our website www.uyr.us as once again, this surgery and testing will not be cheap, but look at this baby…he is worth every penny to fix what that monster did. Thank you all…bless you all…have an amazing Thanksgiving! Hugs~~Susan and Hank~~

Initial Bio 9/20/17:

It's so sad when the only pics I have to introduce this baby to the rescue look like this. So everyone meet Hank. Hank is an owner surrender by his mommy. After a bath by her fiance, Hank slipped and fell, and she found him holding up his leg. She thought maybe this was patella issues then over the weekend the bruising and swelling settled in. She began calling vets for pricing to get him seen but financially she just couldn't afford the cost so she reached out to rescue. We met at the ER since it was after hours for vets so we could see what we might be dealing with. Tears flowing, she said goodbye to her baby of 8yrs.

Hank was taken to the back as I filled out his paperwork. The vet came in and asked about the auto accident Hank was in...sadly what I had seen in the pictures were being realized. Hanks femur was shattered and broken, her words, "this is extreme blunt force trauma... no slip in the tub, and he may need amputation."

I collected myself, collected this poor broken baby and both he and I cried the whole hour drive home avid through the night. Rescue has an evil side. I've seen the mill babies, the abandoned ones, the sick ones, the list goes on and on, but to see evil hurts to the soul. Look at these eyes, who does this!!!???!! Why???

Thursday, we see an ortho specialist to see if we can save sweet Hank's leg. He's spending the night at Dr. Sam's so his pain can be managed along with antibiotics to fight bone infection and along with medication for his swelling and bruising. Needless to say, we are only two days in and Hanks care and his medical is going to be sooo overwhelming. Please, please give to this babies medical. He will live, God willing, but he has a long road to go and we need you and your support and love and your shares. God bless you and thank you!

Helen
Texas
Helen

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

THANK YOU TO HELEN'S RESCUE ANGELS!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Rhett is a Handsome Virginia Gent Looking for Love!
Virginia
Rhett Muttler

Meet Rhett Muttler an adorable 12-year-old (estimated), 8 pound Yorkie gentleman being fostered in Boydton, VA.

THANK YOU TO RHETT MUTTLER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta

Initial Bio 7/18/18

Hold onto your hearts Yorkie lovers, because this sweet Virginia pup is out to STEAL IT! Meet Rhett Muttler, our newest UYR heart throb. Rhett came to us as a stray with no name and we think he is absolutely as handsome as a southern gentleman can be. We simply HAD to give him a name that fit his good looks and sweet southern demeanor and Rhett seemed to fit the bill PAWFECTLY! Believe it or not, this sweet boy was found sitting on the side of the road and ended up at the shelter. Even sadder, Rhett was not alone when he was found……he was lying beside another dog, and unfortunately that dog was deceased. We can’t know for certain what happened but it seems highly possible that both dogs were “dumped” together and Rhett’s friend was likely hit by a car. In any event, both dogs were found on the side of a road and precious Rhett was sitting faithfully by the side of his former friend hoping they would get up……. they did not. Rhett was in really bad shape. He was badly matted and needed to be shaved to the skin. He was covered in fleas, ticks, and burrs. He had all the usual conditions that we see in neglected dogs, skin issues, parasites, poor nutrition, not neutered……but thankfully he is heart worm negative and we are most grateful for that! When we picked Rhett up from the shelter we took him straight to the Vet where he received a complete physical, x-rays, lab tests and a senior dog workup and he began to receive the medical care he had obviously been lacking. Rhett has the biggest heart……. And we mean that on EVERY POSSIBLE level! On a figurative level, Rhett is a very sweet and loving pup. On a literal level, his chest X-Ray revealed that Rhett has an pretty enlarged heart. He also has a heart murmur which the Vet classified as a Grade 4 of 6. Rhett has probably had this for some time but now he is on medication to relieve the stress on his overworked heart and help it pump more efficiently. It is our hope that once he has been on medication for a few weeks, his heart size will decrease. This sometimes happens with a good response to medication. In any case, medication will make Rhett feel better and help improve his heart function. At present Rhett has no observable symptoms of heart disease he and acts like a healthy dog. Most likely Rhett will need to be on his medication for the rest of his life. Rhett has only 3 teeth left (with a good chance those need to be removed too) so he is a permanent "Tongue Out Tuesday" kind of guy! He eats just fine and and we think this makes him all the more adorable. Rhett has just landed in his foster home, so we are just getting to know him better. We want to monitor his progress on his new treatment regimen, but we have every reason to believe this boy has good years ahead of him. Now Rhett just needs to find the perfect human who understands that senior Yorkies are just the absolute BEST companions EVER! A nice soft lap and lots of time to give Rhett belly rubs is also a PLUS! If you would like to help us provide medical care, nutritious food, grooming and care for Rhett and other pups like him then please donate towards his care by clicking the PayPal button below and THANK YOU!

Scout
West Virginia
Scout WV

Meet the handsome Scout! Scout is a 1 year-old, yorkie mix weighing 10 lbs. He is being fostered in WV,.

UPDATE BIO. 06/16/18. Scout is a sweet little guy that has had a bad start in his short little life. He is afraid of everyone except his foster mom and dad. A behaviorist has concluded that he was abused, and his only defense was to growl and bite to keep everyone away. He is making a few significant strides to feeling safe.

His human sisters can walk by his crate while he is distracted, practicing sit and stay. He doesn't get worried about them. Another exercise is for foster mom to hold him and calm him when others are near. He will now settle down in her arms. Scout is finally improving but he has a long way to go. Oddly, he gets along with all of his foster siblings, from three pounds to sixty pounds.

He couldn't be more affectionate with his mom and dad. He has perfect leash skills, loves being groomed, loves the car, walks, and he adores being outside. He is also house-trained. Scout loves snuggles and kisses. It's just sad that his first year was so bleak. But his future is bright and he will continue to be the happy puppy he has become. Trust will come in time. Only a local adopter can be considered as Scout will need to get to know someone over time. He will not be available for a few months as his little breakthroughs are developing.

Update Bio. 04/09/18. Scout is a beautiful Shorkie, Shih Tzu and Yorkie, puppy. Scout is only available for adoption to someone who will help with his fear issues. He is a year old, house-trained, crate and car trained, and is learning the steps towards his Canine Good Citizen certification. Scout has not been available in the past but we are ready to start working on finding him the right home. Please do not inquire unless you read through his bios and updates. He will also need a home close to his foster. Scout is in Martinsburg WV. His potential adopters can help with his trust issues by meeting at the local park and getting to know him slowly. He needs an adult only home and his ideal new family should have some experience with helping a dog that is fearful learn to trust again. Scout adores his foster mom and dad but will not allow a relationship past his two trusted humans. He loves all of his fur siblings, from three to sixty pounds. He is affectionate and loves life.

Update Bio. 03/05/18 Scout is not available for adoption at this time.

Scout, our little fluffy Shorkie (Shih Tzu and Yorkie), has been settling in at his foster home. He is a happy, healthy 1 1/2 year old puppy who loves life. He is well above average in intelligence, quickly learning his steps to Canine Good Citizen completion. He sits, comes when called, and he will stay. He also does what his foster mom asks the first time she says a command. He will stop playing and stand, he know the term gentle when playing with the tiny ones and mom, and he goes wherever he is asked. He's completely house-trained, loves his crate, perfect in the car, and loves all of his fur brothers and sisters. At night, he couldn't get closer when snuggling foster mom and the orhers sleeping. Perfect, right? Well, not exactly.

Scout had his first session with his behaviorist and it didn't go well. He growled the whole time and could not be consoled. After careful observations, Scout was put back with the other dogs where he immediately calmed down. Then the behaviorist and foster mom had a long talk and a plan was put into place. As mentioned in his previous bio, Scout has a bite history. He was literally hidden in a box in a storage room at the shelter when the director came through, knowing he would be killed. The staff saved this little fluff ball from euthanasia and reached out to United Yorkie Rescue to save his life. We knew this would be a tough case but with Scout, this time we were truly saving a life.

The behaviorist has concluded that Scout has been mistreated, most likely hit repeatedly in his former home. His growling keeps people away. If they stay away, he won't be hit. He trusts his foster mom and dad implicitly, but unfortunately no one else 100% of the time. We have a plan for Scout but it will be a long rehab. He needs to forget his past and trust those around him. He may always only trust a few people. But for now, he is safe, happy, healthy, loved, and because of the efforts of United Yorkie Rescue, alive!

Initial Bio 12/17/17: Welcome little Scout. You will be spending Christmas in your new foster home. Your shelter days are over. Scout is a one year old puppy. He's a little bit Yorkie, Poodle, Shih Tzu, and maybe Maltese. It all adds up to an adorable ten pound ball of fluff. He is just a beautiful little boy.

Scout has a sad story that could have ended his life. Little Scout has a bite history which made him unadoptable in the shelter. His paperwork stated that he bit his owner. That meant he was only able to leave the shelter with a rescue. Weeks went by and no rescue would take him. His time ran out and the shelter had given up hope. A tiny puppy was going to lose his life. Little Scout is a mix breed and to save his life, the shelter reached out to United Yorkie Rescue, hoping we could see a glimpse of a Yorkie in all that fluff, enough of a glimpse to save his life. We saw what we needed to see to save this sweet boy and give him a chance for a loving family to call his own. After some digging into his bite incident, it was found that Scout bit his owner when the owner experienced a grand mal seizure. But after a few days, Scout's foster mom feels that he may have been hit by a human.

Scout is house-trained, crate-trained, has great leash skills, and loves to ride in the car. He listens well and has great social skills. He is affectionate and loves attention. He adores toys and will play tug of war politely. We are just getting to know him as he has only been saved for a few days, just in time to spend Christmas with his loving foster family. He fit right in from the start with his fur siblings. Enjoy the longer hair in the pictures because he has some knots. He will get a grooming after the holidays.

Scout is a puppy and his new family needs to be dedicated to continuing his positive reinforcement training. We are currently working on sit, off, kisses, and easy. He is doing very well.

Scout will not be immediately available for adoption. Keep watching his updates for when he becomes available.


To date we've spent $247.18 on Scout WV's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Avery
Wisconsin
Avery

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

THANK YOU TO AVERY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Wendy Klinke

UPDATE BIO. 06/24/18. Avery is Not Ready to be adopted. He is still afraid of all people. No applications at this time, please.

Avery is a very healthy and Handsome boy. He is large, at 15 pounds, and does shed, but not terribly. Really good brushings and combings help with that.

When he is ready, he will need a totally secure fenced yard, since he is a runner. Also children over the age of 13 years old. Most of all, he will need a very patient, loving family.

Avery will need a companion dog that is loving, nurturing, and playful.... or one that’s nurturing and another dog that is playful.

Please visit often for updates on his ability to trust again and readiness for adoption.

UPDATE BIO> 05/28/18. Avery has been with us for 1.5 months, and has settled in with our, and our dogs routine. As of right now, he seems a long way from being ready for his “Forever Home”.

Avery will take a treat from your hand, but then runs back to his safe spot. To us, he is house-trained. He goes out in the morning, after each meal, and before bedtime. He can go a good 5 hours, if you need to go somewhere, before having to go outside...he has gone up to 7 hours. We “do not” kennel or crate him when we leave. He stays in our TV room with our other dogs, and is very content, and happy sleeping next to the others.

Initial Bio 4/17/18: Avery is a 1.5 year old, 17 lb. Yorkie-mix. We do not know what he is a mix of, but he is a very handsome boy. He came from an 80 dog hoarding situation, but despite all that he has been thru, he is starting to trust people.

Avery had his veterinary appointment today and did well. I was able to pick him up and hold him while my husband drove us to the vet. Dr. T, my wonderful veterinarian, was also able to pick him up and examine him.

Avery is great with other dogs. He goes up and down our steps to go outside to potty etc. and when he is done, he runs right back to the door to be let back in. I feel that in a month or two, Avery is going to be a loving companion for someone. Watch for more updates as I get to know Avery better.


To date we've spent $38.00 on Avery's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $38.00 in donations.

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

THANK YOU TO MICHAEL'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Trula Montgomery

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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