Glory

MEET GLORY. She is one of 20 dogs rescued by UYR recently from a horrendous puppy mill in Southern Georgia. Glory is a Morkie who is 4 years old and weighs 8.2 lbs. She is being fostered in Mobile, AL.

THANK YOU TO GLORY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Michelle Pannoni

UPDATED BIO 03/15/2019: Glory is learning what life is outside of the horrible puppy mill where she spent her entire life. Since this property was operating as a puppy mill, inhumanely breeding dogs to sell for profit, many of these dogs were highly sought-after small breeds, and there were a hundred or so yorkshire terriers, maltese and yorkie/maltese mixes, in addition to many other small breed dogs.

Glory’s life has really changed in the past couple of weeks – she went from living in a tiny wire crate with hundreds of other dogs to being the princess in her foster house. She has finally begun to settle in well and she even enjoys the comfort of her crate at times. One of the resident dogs is showing her the house rules and helping her learn proper house manners. House-training is going well and walks on a leash are now a breeze with her brother since she follows his lead – hooray! He is also teaching her to play like a beloved companion dog.

Huge changes have been happening this week for Glory. She enjoyed a spa day earlier in the week and looks super sassy! Later in the week, she was spayed and had a dental cleaning. She will be taking it easy the next week so that she can recuperate. Foster Mom says that Glory is making remarkable progress, especially for a puppy mill dog, and this speaks to the amazing resilience and determination she possesses. Unlike most of the dogs who have spent their lives in a puppy mill, Glory is very loving and affectionate. She seeks out human contact and loves it.

An ideal forever family for Glory would be one with another dog to help her stay on a routine, show her the ropes and give her some doggie companionship which she really enjoys. A fenced-in yard would be a bonus for Glory since she is enjoying the freedom of running for the first time in her life. Glory can be placed in the home with children over the age of 10 years old as she will surely enjoy running in the yard with her two-legged foster sisters, and the feel of the wind in her face!

Glory is really a very special little princess. She is super sweet and very smart. While she is still cautious at times since everything in her life is new to her, she enjoys human contact and would thrive best with another dog in the home. If you think you might be a good match for Glory, please consider filing out an adoption application. Her puppy mill days are a thing of the past and she is anxiously awaiting news of a forever home.

Now a few words from Princess Glory: "I am not really feeling all that well at the moment. My Foster Mom took me to the vet a day or two ago and I was thinking it would be another spa day when I got all dolled-up. When I was at the doggie spa, I got a warm bath, nails trimmed, haircut and blow-dry, and some really nice smelling spritz’y stuff. My entire foster family kept telling me how beautiful I looked. Even with my short hair I was feeling very sassy – and pretty for the first time in my life.

Well, boy-oh-boy was I WRONG about that! The Vet is not at all like the spa I went to. I don't remember much of the day at the vet. I think they drugged me because I remember falling asleep and when I woke up, my mouth was a little sore and my belly was really sore. I even heard my Foster Mom saying something about me having stitches. I don't know what stitches are, but I will have to figure it out because I don't think I like having them."

The UYR members that pulled Glory were shocked and saddened at the inhumane conditions in which these dogs were living. The property had more than 700 dogs being housed in a warehouse in too-small crates – with more than one dog per crate, and stacked one on top of the other. A majority of the dogs pulled were suffering from malnourishment, sores and abrasions, severe dental disease, matted hair, infections, severe eye injuries, congenital diseases and general severe neglect. The smell alone of the poor dogs was enough to cause a person to be nauseous and these dogs lived 24/7 365 days a year in this environment.

.

Please watch for updated postings on all 20 dogs from the puppy mill that came into UYR and who are being fostered in Florida, Alabama, Tennessee and Kentucky. This was a huge endeavor that took a lot of supportive members who all volunteered their time and without our amazing fostering members, we would not have been able to save so many. UYR is very proud and humbled to have participated in bringing happiness and new lives and love to 20 little doggies. The vetting expenses on these little dogs will be huge, so if you have been moved by Glory’s story and the stories of the other 19 dogs who are journeying toward wellness and love, please consider making a donation to help UYR continue to participate in rescues of this magnitude.

Glory slept in a soft bed her first night in her foster home, with food and water available to her.

Glory appears to be a bright and happy little girl who comes up trusted people for attention and freely gives lots and lots of kisses. She is allowing her foster parents to hold her which is quite unusual so soon after being rescued, but this speaks of the amazing resilience and desire to trust she has

Arkansas
Dexter

Dexter Doolittle is a 2-year-old, 4.6-pound Shorkie (Shihtzu-Yorkie Mix) being fostered in Bryant, AR.

THANK YOU TO DEXTER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Heather Moseby, Janet Smith

Initial Bio 3/14/19: Meet Dexter Doodle. Dexter D comes to UYR from owners who were unable to care for him. Dexter came to us in a pretty neglected state. He was infested with fleas, and pretty badly matted. We have cut most of the mats out but he will have a professional grooming soon. Dexter has a large bare spot on his back and lots of scabs on his skin which is very flaky and scaly. The Vet suspects possible ringworm so a skin scraping was taken and has been sent of for testing. He has several retained baby teeth that will need to be extracted and he has not been neutered.

Dexter has lots of stuff in the plus column besides being adorable and having big beautiful, expressive eyes. He is very sweet and loves everyone. He loves to sit close to you on the couch and snuggle. He is young and playful and is wild about squeaky toys. He is also not a big barker and will correct very easily.

Dexter has always been an only dog but he seems interested in the other dogs in his foster home and the ones he met at the Vet. We think Dexter would do best in a home with an active owner, no children and perhaps one other small dog. He does not appear to be house-trained so someone with the patience to help him learn this important skill is important. We don't think Dexter has spent much time outside because he seems scared when taken out and does not seem to understand about leash walking. He will also require regular grooming.

Dexter has just arrived in his foster home so stay tuned while we get to know him! If you can help us with a donation towards his care we'd be most grateful. Click the PayPal button below!


To date we've spent $191.45 on Dexter's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $75.00 in donations.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Foster Parents – Diane & Alex

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Brandy is a Special UYR Yorkie with Unique Needs.

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

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

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

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

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

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

I am so glad UYR gave me a home

Me and my brother Chong promise to love you forever
Florida
Cheech (and Chong)

Cheech and his brother Chong are Yorkie Mixes. Cheech is estimated to be 10 years old and weighs a chubby 16 lbs. They are being fostered in Ft. Myers, FL.

THANK YOU TO CHEECH'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Irene and Peter Havas

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Cheech and Chong are bonded and must be adopted together.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Clooney is a yorkie-mix boy who is 1-1/2 years old and weighs 11.7 pounds. Clooney has quite a story to tell for being so young. He is being fostered in Tampa, FL.

THANK YOU TO CLOONEY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Patricia Giles, Pam Roberts, Michelle Hertzke

UPDATED BIO 02/27/2019: Clooney had a sad life prior to coming into United Yorkie Rescue. He was rescued from an open balcony on a high-rise apartment complex by concerned and benevolent strangers where he had been abandoned for three weeks. There was no doggie bed, no toys, no blanket - nothing but three l-o-n-g weeks of loneliness and despair.

Clooney has come a long way since his first day in foster care just 18 days ago and is now slowly learning how to be a wonderful companion dog. Clooney has shown that he loves to be with his humans and will lay beside them, both during the day and at night while sleeping. He prefers to be next to you on the sofa, but not necessarily on your lap. He loves to lay on his back, showing his ultimate trust once he knows you. Of course, giving belly rubs helps him bond even faster!

Clooney is very friendly when he meets new people. Not overbearing, but he does insist on getting petted by coming up and giving kisses – and loves the attention. He’s not yet fully house-trained, but he does really want to please his humans. He knows that he is supposed to do his business as soon as he goes outside, but still has occasional accidents in the house. He is able to go 8-10 hours at night without going, but he needs to go outside as soon as he wakes up.

Clooney walks okay on a leash, but still wants to pull a bit. He goes into a crate when foster parents leave, and doesn’t seem to mind his alone time. He is slowly realizing that this is not acceptable behavior, but it will take time. Because he was just recently neutered, he may get better with his house-training soon.

Clooney does like to play with his toys, and is also learning to fetch and bring his toy back to you. He will toss a toy up in the air and chase it. Clooney is a young dog at just 1.5 years old, and therefore has a whole lot of energy to burn. He seems to be okay with cats, and with the right dog, he loves to romp and play

Clooney’s perfect home would be ……

- One where he had someone home with him most of the day to reinforce house-training and leash-training and work on his puppy manners

- One where there are no older dogs and no larger dogs, but a dog close to his size and age to be a play buddy

- One where there is a fenced-in yard since he loves to go outside and play, play, play. This is not a deal-breaker, but a BONUS for this sweet pup

- No children younger than 12 years old since he still has the puppy rambunctious behavior

Clooney is a healthy and happy young dog and is ready to go to his furever home, so if you think you might fit the bill of his requirements in a new home, complete the adoption application below and let’s see!

UPDATED BIO 02/09/2019: Clooney had a sad life prior to coming into United Yorkie Rescue. Thanks to the help of several benevolent and concerned strangers, he was rescued from an open balcony on a high-rise apartment complex where he had been living all alone for three weeks. There was no doggie bed, no toys, no blanket - nothing but three l-o-n-g weeks of loneliness and despair.

That has all changed for this sweet young puppy now that he is in the loving arms of his foster parents. He has been neutered and received all of his vaccinations, and now will begin to overcome the trauma that he suffered while fending for himself on that balcony. He is enjoying the other little dog in his foster home and loved the freedom of being outside for an hour to run around to his little heart’s content. Please note: Clooney would appreciate a young dog like him for a play buddy. He is inquisitive about his surroundings and independent as well, and also a smart little boy, already learning several commands which include Come, Stay and No. He is not leash-trained and his foster parents will be working with him on that as well as house-training. It appears no one took the time with him in his previous life to teach him basic puppy manners.

Clooney shows a great potential of being a loyal and loving companion dog, but it will take him some time to fully trust humans again after the humans in his life prior to coming into UYR failed him miserably. Please keep checking back to read about Clooney’s progress – adoption applications are being considered at this time with the understanding that he will be learning the ropes of being a companion dog and this may take a few weeks.

Initial Bio 02/02/2019: Clooney can't tell us much about his life until the last three weeks. That was when his owners abandoned him. He spent the last three weeks on an open balcony of a high-rise apartment house. Even in the cold and rain Clooney was out in the open on this balcony. Near him was a soggy wet bag of smelly dog food. There was no one to walk him, and so he had no choice but to do all his business on the balcony and then live in it. There was no doggie bed, no toys, no blanket - nothing but three l-o-n-g weeks of loneliness and despair.

You may wonder how we know he was alone for three weeks. The maintenance man heard a dog barking three weeks ago. But the apartment complex was full of dogs and he had no idea where the barking was coming from and what dog was doing the barking. He heard the barking on and off in the same area for three weeks. It was just luck that the property management asked him to clean up the apartment and get it ready to rent again. And that is when this small, young dog was discovered on the balcony waiting and hoping for someone – anyone - to come and save him. This kind man scooped up Clooney and took him to the property management office. There luck smiled on Clooney. The wonderful woman in the office offered to take Clooney home, clean him up, cut off the horrible mats that were all over his body, and find him a home. After making sure there was no microchip and no one had reported him missing, she contacted United Yorkie Rescue. The vet who scanned him and didn't find a chip told her that he was probably as young as a year and a half.

Today Clooney became a United Yorkie Rescue dog. He was given the name Clooney and will be cared for. He is not neutered and we have no idea if he was ever vaccinated. He will see the vet as soon as possible. He will have a physical exam, get his vaccinations, be given a heartworm test (please hope that it is negative), a fecal exam, and an appointment for his neuter. His rescue angel from the apartment complex management office said he is such a sweet boy. He cuddled with her, got along with her dogs, and he didn't show any signs of aggression. Bless his sweet heart – even though he had been abandoned through no fault of his own, he even played with toys when in her care.

Clooney will have nothing but love and care while he is in his foster home. We are not sure when he will be ready for his forever home since there is so much to know about him and making sure he has whatever vetting he may need. Please follow Clooney's story as we all get to know him and give him the love he needs. We have promised Clooney he will never find himself alone again.

I need lots of love and care

I was so sad in the puppy mill
Florida
Dolly

MEET DOLLY! She is one of 20 dogs rescued by UYR recently from a horrendous puppy mill in Southern Georgia. Dolly is a Parti Yorkie, who is approximately 8 years old and weighs a skinny 9.6 pounds. She is being fostered in St. Augustine, FL.

THANK YOU TO DOLLY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Michelle Pannoni

UPDATED BIO 03/12/2019: Dolly is learning what life is outside of the horrible puppy mill where she spent her entire life. Since this property was operating as a puppy mill, inhumanely breeding dogs to sell for profit, many of these dogs were highly sought-after small breeds, and there were a hundred or so yorkshire terriers, maltese and yorkie/maltese mixes, in addition to many other small breed dogs.

The UYR members that pulled Dolly were shocked and saddened at the inhumane conditions in which these dogs were living. The property had more than 700 dogs being housed in a warehouse in too-small crates – with more than one dog per crate, and stacked one on top of the other. A majority of the dogs pulled were suffering from malnourishment, sores and abrasions, severe dental disease, matted hair, infections, severe eye injuries, congenital diseases and general severe neglect. The smell alone of the poor dogs was enough to cause a person to be nauseous and these dogs lived 24/7 365 days a year in this environment.

Fast Forward 10 days, and we are happy to report that Dolly is doing so good in her foster home. Foster Mom heard her bark today for the first time, and was relieved to know she could bark and hadn’t been cruelly debarked by the puppy miller. She has been vetted and thankfully is HW negative – hooray! Dolly is skinny at 9.6 pounds and would be a healthier weight if she gained a couple of pounds, and that shouldn’t be a problem since she loves to eat. Out of a bowl – a great accomplishment for a puppy mill dog who never experienced eating out of a bowl. WOW.

Dolly has decided that she likes going for walks, and she is curious about the outdoors since she’s never experienced being able to freely walk outdoors previously. She is even playing with a small ball now – sweet! When Dolly walks she prances around and reminds Foster Mom of a show horse strutting her stuff. She is still fearful of being picked up to sit on laps yet, but she follows Foster Mom around all the time. Dolly is beautiful now, but will be more beautiful once her coat grows in. She is what is referred to as a parti-yorkie and is white, black and a little brown throw in. Adorable.

Please watch for updated postings on all 20 dogs from the puppy mill that came into UYR and who are being fostered in Florida, Alabama, Tennessee and Kentucky. This was a huge endeavor that took a lot of supportive members who all volunteered their time and without our amazing fostering members, we would not have been able to save so many. UYR is very proud and humbled to have participated in bringing happiness and new lives and love to 20 little doggies. The vetting expenses on these little dogs will be huge, so if you have been moved by Dolly’s story and the stories of the other 19 dogs who are journeying toward wellness and love, please consider making a donation to help UYR continue to participate in rescues of this magnitude.

PLEASE NOTE: Dolly has let her Foster Parents know that she needs another doggie companion in her adoptive home to show her the ropes of being a beloved family member and to be her buddy.

INITIAL BIO 03/02/2019: Delightful Dolly is learning what life is outside of the horrible puppy mill where she spent her entire life. Since this property was operating as a puppy mill, inhumanely breeding dogs to sell for profit, many of these dogs were highly sought-after small breeds, and there were a hundred or so yorkshire terriers, maltese and yorkie/maltese mixes, in addition to many other small breed dogs.

Being a Parti Yorkie with her distinct grayish/black and white coloring, Dolly's puppies were worth a lot of money. This poor girl had litter after litter after litter. She is very shaky and scared. She has a lot of sores on her body. There is a great deal of hair loss and Dolly is very skinny. This poor sweet girl will need a lot of love and patience. Trust will come slowly to her. There was very little if any human contact in her life before she was rescued from the puppy mill. She will have her spay, and this girl will never had another litter of puppies ever again. Dolly will have to heal medically and mentally. It will be a slow process but the rewards will be immense

I was so sad when I was so matted.

Look at me now! Handsome right?
Florida
Georgie

MEET GEORGIE! He is one of 20 dogs rescued by UYR recently from a horrendous puppy mill in Southern Georgia. Georgie is a Maltese puppy who is only 8 months old and weighs 8.6 lbs. He is being fostered in Tallahassee, FL.

UPDATED BIO 03/19/2019: Handsome Puppy Georgie is learning about life outside of the horrible puppy mill where he spent all 8 months of his short life. Since the property was operating as a puppy mill, inhumanely breeding dogs to sell for profit, many of these dogs were highly sought-after small breeds, and there were a hundred or so yorkshire terriers, maltese and yorkie/maltese mixes, in addition to many other small breed dogs.

Georgie is slowly adapting to life outside of the horrrid conditions he had lived in while at the puppy mill. He is definitely loving running around with his brother Sammy in the fenced-in back yard. He is not as curious as Sammy about his surroundings, but that will come in time. He feels so much better after all the matting was shaved from his little body. He sleeps soundly in the doggie bed – finally. It took him several days to be comfortable with even stepping into the doggie bed, but he has now figured out that it is soft and comfy – and a safe place for him to be. PLEASE NOTE: Georgie is not house-trained and still doesn’t understand the concept of doing his business outside, so it will take patience and repetition in order for him to figure out where it is – and is not – appropriate to potty.

Georgie is still fearful of being picked up, but he is getting a tad bit better each day. Once he is in his foster parents’ arms, he relaxes and settles in nicely and will lie there for hours. Treats are being offered when he comes when called and when he settles and lets foster mom pick him up. Little Georgie was never socialized to be a companion animal – his main purpose was to breed in the mill - so it will take patience and understanding and lots of love to let him know that he is going to be okay and that the humans he will meet for the rest of his life will only touch him with loving hands and kind hearts. Georgia is a survivor for sure and is running around the puppy play yard trying to engage the other dogs in play. This speaks of the amazing resilience and true grit he possesses.

Georgie follows his playmate Sammy around like a little ducking and takes cues from him and the resident senior yorkie. Being a puppy, all he wants to do both inside and outside is to play-play-play all the time. Georgie needs to go into a home with another dog close to his size and age. Children over the age of 12 years old would be okay.

Georgie is now sleeping in a soft bed in his foster home and has learned that his food and water come in a bowl and not thrown into the bottom of a wire crate. He is one of the worse cases of matting his foster mom has ever seen. He saw the vet yesterday to be sedated and shaved down and what an amazing transformation took place! Georgie was also neutered, had all his vaccinations and a retained canine tooth was removed. He was also heartworm negative, thank goodness. He still has some deciduous puppy teeth, but they are loose and should fall out. He is very playful and loves having the freedom of running for the first time in his life.

Goldie

MEET GOLDIE! She is one of 20 dogs rescued by UYR recently from a horrendous puppy mill in Southern Georgia. Goldie is a Maltese who is 3 years old and weighs 9 lbs. She is being fostered in Freeport, FL.

THANK YOU TO GOLDIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Irene and Peter Havas in memory of their darling Happy, Michelle Hertzke

UPDATED BIO 03/12/2019: Glorious Goldie is learning what life is outside of the horrible puppy mill where she spent her entire life. Since this property was operating as a puppy mill, inhumanely breeding dogs to sell for profit, many of these dogs were highly sought-after small breeds, and there were a hundred or so yorkshire terriers, maltese and yorkie/maltese mixes, in addition to many other small breed dogs.

Goldie is now sleeping in a soft comfortable dog bed in her foster home, with food and water available to her. She is learning how to drink water out of a bowl, and is now eating her meals out of a bowl as well, which wasn’t always the case in the puppy mill. Foster Mom says that she is the sweetest and most adorable dog that she has fostered in a long time. In just over a week, she is playing with toys, goes outdoors to do her business and has rare accidents in the home. She follows Foster Mom everywhere and when she can’t find her, she will bark until Foster Mom comes and gets her. Hopefully, Goldie’s memories of the horrendous life she had before will fade away and she will know nothing but love and comfort for the rest of her life.

Goldie is still traumatized at the turn of events in her young life, and it will take her some time to fully trust humans. She is still very shy and won't get too close to her Foster Dad, but gets better every day. She gets along with the resident dogs in the home and looks for them to teach her what to do. It will take time for Goldie to be totally trusting, but she is definitely on her way towards that goal.

The UYR members that pulled Goldie were shocked and saddened at the inhumane conditions in which these dogs were living.

I am a sweet, good boy.

I wil be a loving companion to you
Florida
Jack

This sweet Yorkie mix boy is Jack. Jack is 10 years old and weighs a very skinny 12.5 pounds. Jack is both hearing and vision impaired. He is being fostered in St. Augustine, FL.

THANK YOU TO JACK'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Michelle Hertzke

UPDATED BIO 02/28/2019: Sweet Jack must have spent a long time wandering the streets before being picked up and taken to the local Humane Society. He was very underweight and was covered with fleas. The wonderful people at the Humane Society did everything they could to make him feel better, but he needed more care than they could give him. When his stray hold was up and no one called or came for him, Jack became a United Yorkie Rescue dog.

Jack has been in his foster home for six weeks now and has adapted quite nicely considering the fact that he is totally deaf and vision-impaired. He recently had a dental and lost 10 teeth, but this doesn’t affect his ability to eat. Jack needs to gain weight since he was very thin when he came into rescue and a healthy weight for him would be 14-15 lbs. He is becoming more active each day and sleeping less which he did early on. He loves going outside to do his business, so a forever family with a fenced-in back yard where he could smell the outdoors and roam around would be a bonus! Jack has discovered the toy box and although he hasn’t actually played with the toys yet, he knows where they are.

Jack is acclimating to being a beloved member of his foster family – it took him a while to realize that he was safe and loved, but he is now seeking out his foster parents and loves to be with them – especially his Foster Dad. He likes to be petted and have his ears scratched. He is a quiet and mellow little fella who seldom barks and would make a wonderful loving and loyal companion.

Jack’s perfect home would be one that has at least one stay-at-home parent who understands that Jack has some special needs and is willing to patiently and lovingly work with him on how to overcome those challenges. He would do well as an only dog in the home, but would also adapt to a doggie companion who is close to his size and age – no younger dogs please as their high-energy may be too much for him with his special needs. He is also okay with kitty cats and tends to just ignore them.

Please don’t turn away from Jack because he is deaf and vision-impaired. He deserves the same love and compassion he did when he was a younger dog. Jack has a lot of love to give to his adoptive family.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Jack’s deafness and vision-impairment, he cannot be adopted into a home with children under the age of 14 years old.

UPDATED BIO 02/02/2019: Poor Jack must have spent a long time wandering the streets before being picked up and taken to the local Humane Society. He was very underweight and was covered with fleas. The wonderful people at the Humane Society did everything they could to make him feel better, but he needed more care than they could give him. When his stray hold was up and no one called or came for him, Jack became a United Yorkie Rescue dog.

Jack’s healthy weight should be around 14-15 lbs, and his foster mom is working on helping him gain that weight. It has been determined that Jack is totally deaf, but he is a smart boy and is following the other dogs in the home and taking clues from their behavior. He seems to anticipate things with them - when the resident dogs get up to go out, he will get up and join them. Sometimes he needs a little more encouragement and guidance. Jack has already learned about what time dinner is, lol!

Jack is vision-impaired as well and has been diagnosed with bilateral Lenticular/Nuclear Sclerosis. This is the medical term for a bluish transparent "haze" that develops in the lens of the eye in middle-aged to senior dogs. This is considered a normal change in the lens associated with aging (for dogs and people too!), and is observed as a cloudiness or bluish discoloration on the pupil. It has been our experience that most yorkies begin developing this condition at about age 8+.

Jack’s horrible skin condition caused by the severe flea infestation when he came into rescue is much, much better. Jack is otherwise a very healthy 10 year old dog. Foster Mom says that Jack is a sweet boy and is becoming more active as he becomes more acclimated in his foster home.

Please don’t turn away from Jack because he is deaf and vision-impaired. He deserves the same love and compassion he did when he was a younger dog. Jack has a lot of love to give to his adoptive family. His perfect home would be with someone that is home a lot and who will work with him on his hearing/vision impairments in a kind and understanding way. Jack would also like to have another doggie companion close to his age and size that could “show him the ropes” in his new home.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Jack’s deafness and vision-impairment, he cannot be adopted into a home with children under the age of 14 years old.

Initial bio 01-14-19 Poor Jack must have spent a long time wandering the streets before being picked up and taken to the local Humane Society. He is so skinny and was covered with fleas. The wonderful people at the Humane Society did everything they could be make him better, but he needed more care than they could give him. And so when his stray hold was up and no one called or came for him, Jack became a United Yorkie Rescue dog.

Jack is very underweight. His foster mom can see and feel his ribs protruding. His teeth are in very bad shape and need to be taken care of very soon. His eyes need continued antibiotics. It seems he is vision impaired. He can see, though not very well. It doesn't stop him from exploring and checking out his surrounding. Jack's skin is dry and flaky. He got his much-needed bath to help with the flakiness. There is hair loss on several parts of his body. This is most likely from the abundance of fleas that were on him when he was found. There also is a little growth on the top of his head, which may be a fatty tumor or something more severe. We hope not.

Jack seems to be a very friendly dog. He has already shown that he likes people. He was fine with the cat and the other dogs in his foster home. Jack will be seeing the vet next week and hopefully we will get nothing but good news. His teeth will be taken care of and he will get the meds needed for any other issues.

There will be so much more coming about Jack as his foster parents discover more about Jack, his personality, and his health. Please check back soon for more information on Jack and when he will be ready for his forever home.


To date we've spent $600.32 on Jack's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $125.00 in donations.

I am such a pretty and sweet girlie

This is the day I was rescued and I was so sad
Florida
Kendra

MEET KENDRA! She is one of 20 dogs rescued by UYR recently from a horrendous puppy mill in Southern Georgia. Kendra is 6-1/2 years old and weighs 8 lbs. She is being fostered in Jacksonville, FL.

THANK YOU TO KENDRA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Michelle Pannoni, Debra Bass

UPDATED BIO 03/24/2019: Kendra is slowly learning what life is outside of the horrible puppy mill where she spent her entire life. Since this property was operating as a puppy mill, inhumanely breeding dogs to sell for profit, many of these dogs were highly sought-after small breeds, and there were a hundred or so yorkshire terriers, maltese and yorkie/maltese mixes, in addition to many other small breed dogs.

Kendra is one of the more timid and frightened dogs that came into UYR. She is slowly making progress as far as being socialized, but is still fearful of being touched or held. She remains scared of humans and will run away if approached. Her foster mom previously had her in a 2 x 2 exercise pen to acclimate her to the household, but is now letting her roam around the house at will so that she will become more comfortable with her surroundings. She has a blanket she received when she arrived and now uses it for security. Foster mom places the blanket in a dog bed and Kendra now lies in the dog bed with the blanket - sweet.

Just this past week Kendra has slowly started to improve. The exercise pen was removed and after a few days she started to explore the house. She still cowers into a submissive position any time people are near her, even her foster mom. She acts like she wants to come towards her, but is still unsure. If foster mom lies on the floor with her arm extended, Kendra will slowly approach to sniff her fingers. She had her first bath which was traumatic for both Kendra and her foster mom, but she gradually accepted it. She has also just started to eat some steamed chicken, which is also being used as treats and rewards when placed near her. It will still be a while before this sweet girlie is ready for adoption, but she is making progress. Baby steps!

Kendra is still very submissive and has little clue what she is supposed to do when outside, but if foster mom stays a distance away from her, she will do her business; otherwise, she will lie down in a submissive posture. It will take time, but Kendra will soon feel safe and be more open to house-training. At this time, Kendra needs more time to adjust to life outside the puppy mill. Kendra’s foster mom does not think she would do well in a busy household with children, so an adult-only home is preferred for this little princess.

The UYR members that pulled Kendra were shocked and saddened at the inhumane conditions in which these dogs were living. The property had more than 700 dogs being housed in a warehouse in too-small crates – with more than one dog per crate, and stacked one on top of the other. A majority of the dogs pulled were suffering from malnourishment, sores and abrasions, severe dental disease, matted hair, infections, severe eye injuries, congenital diseases and general severe neglect. The smell alone of the poor dogs was enough to cause a person to be nauseous and these dogs lived 24/7 365 days a year in this environment.

Please watch for postings on all 20 dogs from the puppy mill that came into UYR. This was a huge endeavor that took a lot of supportive members who all volunteered their time and without our amazing fostering members, we would not have been able to save so many. UYR is very proud and humbled to have participated in bringing happiness and new lives and love to 20 little doggies. The vetting expenses on these little dogs will be huge, so if you have been moved by Kendra’s story and the stories of the other 19 dogs who are journeying toward wellness and love, please consider making a donation to help UYR continue to participate in rescues of this magnitude.

Kendra appears to be a bright and happy little girl who just wants to be safe and be loved. She is a very pretty little girl and is a brave survivor of the life she’s led, and this speaks of the amazing resilience and desire to trust she has. Once she has learned that most humans have loving hands and a kind touch, she will be an amazing little companion to the right family. Kendra is heartworm negative and we are so grateful to learn this news. She has received her vaccinations and will soon be spayed. Please stay tuned for update on this sweet girlie.

Kendra slept in a soft bed her first night in her foster home, with food and water available to her.

I have to be groomed

Look at me now. I got groomed
Florida
Magee

Magee is one of 11 dogs rescued by UYR recently from a horrendous puppy mill in Southern Georgia. Magee is 4 years old and weighs 8.7 pounds. She is being fostered in Orlando, FL.

THANK YOU TO MAGEE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Michelle Pannoni

UPDATED BIO 03/19/2019: Hi everyone, Magee here. Let me tell you how happy I am to be out of that dreadful puppy mill. My foster mom took me to the dogtor to be evaluated and she was surprised that I was healthy because of my so-so-awful background. She says I have this problem with my eyes, called Dry Eye Syndrome, but she gave me some special eye drops and I'm feeling much better. I will need to have these eye drops for the rest of my life.

I'm a little too skinny, but my foster mom has been feeding me some great tasting dog food and I like to eat. I now know what it's like to eat from a bowl and I feel so special to have my own special bowl. Foster mom has this place behind her house - I think she called it a backyard. It was so strange stepping on the grass for the very first time, but now I love it. It's so much fun to run like the wind and it makes me feel so free – it’s a wonderful new feeling I’ve never had before I came to my foster home. I've also discovered these little furry things that make squeaky noises when I chew on them. My foster mom says they are called toys. I had never seen them before, but I sure do love playing with them.

My foster mom takes me for walks in the neighborhood and I love checking out all the new smells. Those smells sure do beat the awful smells from the last place I lived. I'm trying really hard to get the hang of doing my business outside. My foster mom is real patient with me and I just know I'll catch on soon since she tells me I am very smart. I am learning what it's like to be a beloved companion dog and I love it. My foster mom says I'm regaining my puppyhood. I'm lovin' life right now.

Since I've not had a real family before, I think I would like a family where either the mom or dad is retired or works from home. I don't want to be left alone ever again. I think children would be fun, but they have to be old enough to know how to be kind to me –12 years old or older. Another small doggie brother or sister would be good. Oh, I saw something called a cat the other day. I was very nice to the cat, but he was very rude to me. Hmph! Anyway, that's what I have to say for now. If you would like to be my new family, click on the adoption application below.

Magee is adjusting well to her new surroundings in her foster home. She is allowing her Foster Mom to pick her up now, which wasn’t the case when she first arrived because she had never been handled with loving hands previously. She is learning to potty outside, but still has a few accidents in the home, but she is learning where it is and is not appropriate to do her business. Magee has discovered toys and how much fun it is to mouth the different textures. Her favorite? An empty water bottle! She seems delighted to be able to walk on grass, although it was scary at first since she had never done that before.

Magee has been diagnosed with Keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS) or dry eye syndrome and will start on daily eye drops for that. She will need these drops for the rest of her life.

I am so happy to be clean and out of that awful place

Sweet Marlee when rescued from the puppymill
Florida
Marlee

Marlee is one of 11 dogs rescued by UYR recently from a horrendous puppy mill in Southern Georgia. Marlee is approximately 4 years old and weighs 8.2 pounds. She is being fostered in Palm Coast, FL.

THANK YOU TO MARLEE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Michelle Pannoni, Debra Bass

UPDATED BIO 03/07/2019: Marlee has settled into her foster home and is slowly adapting to life outside the puppy mill. In the mill, she didn’t have a name only a number, and she was only one little dog out of 700 dogs housed there. She is so very happy that she was saved by United Yorkie Rescue, and that she was given such a cute name, very fitting for such a sweet girlie.

Marlee has been to the vet for her vaccinations and well-dog check and she is a healthy little girlie. She came into heat and can’t be spayed for at least 4-6 weeks. She will also get a dental when she has her spay surgery. She is also a very smart girlie because she already knows her new name and how to come when called – wow!

Marlee loves car rides and especially enjoys being loved on by her Foster Mom – this is the first time in her life she has been loved. She gets along well with the other dogs in the home, but we are not sure about cats since there are no cats in her foster home. If you are looking for a gem of a girl, please consider Marlee, the Sweetie Pie.

The UYR members that pulled Marlee were shocked and saddened at the inhumane conditions in which these dogs were living.

Marlee is a young dog and was most likely rescued before she could be bred and have a litter of puppies. There is no doubt had she had a litter of puppies it would be her first of many litter to come. She is playful and friendly and the only one of the 11 that we know of to give kisses. Even at her young age she is still wearing the scars of a dog with no care. One eye looks to be infected, she has hair loss, and sores under her eye. Marlee will soon see the vet and get the care she needs as well as her spay.

Mia resting after her emergency C-section

Today was a long hard day
Florida
Mia

This sad little girl is Mia. She just had an emergency C-section. She is 6 years old and 6.4 pregnant pounds. Mia is being fostered in Leesburg, FL.

THANK YOU TO MIA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Diana Wilson, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Cindy Huff

Initial Bio 3-19-19 This is Mia. She was just taken from the shelter where she was turned in because she needed an emergency C-section. She had already delivered one puppy still born. In the shelter the vet did the emergency surgery. One puppy died and the third puppy was delivered but in serious condition. She needed constant stimulation. Mommy Mia is still not ready to nurse her, so puppy Daisy is being syringe feed formula. It is hoped that when the anesthesia fully wears off she will let Daisy her newborn puppy nurse. If not then there will be round the clock feedings by her foster family.

Mia was on Facebook, listed as Free to a good home, when her former family found the post and took her in. They were not sure how she got pregnant as it was not planned at all. They were very sad to let Mia go, but they knew it was for the best. It was the only way to make sure she got the care and surgery she needed right away.

Our hope right now is that Mia will start to nurse her baby and Daisy the puppy will overcome her rough start in life and thrive. We are doing everything we can to make that happen.

Mia will need some additional vetting and a good clean up when she is ready. More updates on Mia and her puppy Daisy coming soon.

We are currently not taking applications for Mia for at least 3 months until Daisy her puppy can eat on her own,


To date we've spent $73.87 on Mia's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $80.00 in donations.

I know I am cute

I like to rest on the carpet
Florida
Rocco

This cutie is Rocco. He is 8 years old and only 5.9 pounds. This little Yorkie is being fostered in Orlando, FL.

Initial Bio 3/15/19 Rocco has had a rocky road from his very early days until he became a United Yorkie Rescue dog. He was bought from a breeder as a puppy. He lived with his first family for four and a half years. This family decided they no longer wanted Rocco because he was a bother. So they were ready to turn him into the SPCA. As luck would have it that very same day a couple came into the SPCA looking for a little dog and saw this man holding this little Yorkie. He was matted and dirty and needed major attention.

This nice couple took this little dog. Rocco was a scared and angry little guy for quite a while. Rocco was so scared that at the vet clinic he was aggressive to the vet. In order to examine him and get him up to date on his vaccinations they had to sedate him. While sedated they also shaved him down to the skin to get rid of the mats. His new mom and dad worked with him, but soon discovered he was not fond of men very much and really only liked women. This was most likely due to being abused by the man in his first family. These nice people worked hard with Rocco and he made great progress. They had Rocco for 3 years and during those years they had two children, they both worked, and their once quiet home became noisy and loud and full of activity.

Last year Rocco's family decided Rocco needed a much quieter, more sedate home life. Rocco’s dad’s mother having gotten to know Rocco from baby sitting the two young kids offered to take Rocco in. Rocco was now in his third home. Although Rocco has made so much progress under the love and care of both his last families he was still was unhappy because there was a man in the house and men still were his least favorite people. With much regret and knowing how far Rocco has come it was decided he really needed a home where it would only be Rocco and his mom, no men, no kids, and maybe one other small dog, but even no other dog would be better. A fenced yard would be great, but he does fine on a leash.

ROCCO WILL ONLY BE CONSIDERED FOR ADOPTION TO A FEMALE ONLY HOME. He cannot go to a home that includes a man, children, other dogs (he must be the only dog), and cats. There will be no exceptions made.

Rocco just arrived at his foster home and his foster mom will need a little time to figure him out. There will be a lot to learn about Rocco so she will know for sure exactly what his forever home must have and can't have. Please check for updates on this adorable little boy.


To date we've spent $323.47 on Rocco's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

I need a lot of love and care and a nice grooming

Look at me now - I am beautiful!
Florida
Roxie

Roxie is one of 11 dogs rescued by UYR recently from a horrendous puppy mill in Southern Georgia. Roxie, a Yorkie mix, is approximately 5 years old and weighs 12-1/2 pounds. She is being fostered in Zephyrhills, FL..

THANK YOU TO ROXIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Irene and Peter Havas in memory of darling Happy

UPDATED BIO 03/13/2019: Roxie is learning what life is outside of the horrible puppy mill where she spent her entire life. Since this property was operating as a puppy mill, inhumanely breeding dogs to sell for profit, many of these dogs were highly sought-after small breeds, and there were a hundred or so Yorkshire Terriers, Maltese, and Yorkie/Maltese mixes, in addition to many other small breed dogs.

Roxie is doing really well on her walks and is non-reactive on the leash. She gets along with both the cats and dogs in her foster home. She is a sweet dog with a sweet disposition. She likes sitting on the couch next to her foster parents and likes her belly rubbed. She will jump down on her own but she won't jump up. She's eating much better, but she has to roam around for a while before she decides to eat. Roxie is doing remarkably well on her house-training which is pretty amazing given that she has only been out of the puppy mill for 11 days – what a smart girlie. Roxie loves being outdoors and going for walks, and a fenced-in yard would be a bonus; otherwise, she would like to go for several long walks every day.

The UYR members that pulled Roxie were shocked and saddened at the inhumane conditions in which these dogs were living. The property had more than 700 dogs being housed in a warehouse in too-small crates – with more than one dog per crate, and stacked one on top of the other. A majority of the dogs pulled were suffering from malnourishment, sores and abrasions, severe dental disease, matted hair, infections, severe eye injuries, congenital diseases and general severe neglect. The smell alone of the poor dogs was enough to cause a person to be nauseous and these dogs lived 24/7 365 days a year in this environment.

Please watch for updated postings on all 20 dogs from the puppy mill that came into UYR and who are being fostered in Florida, Alabama, Tennessee and Kentucky. This was a huge endeavor that took a lot of supportive members who all volunteered their time and without our amazing fostering members, we would not have been able to save so many. UYR is very proud and humbled to have participated in bringing happiness and new lives and love to 20 little doggies. The vetting expenses on these little dogs will be huge, so if you have been moved by Roxie’s story and the stories of the other 19 dogs who are journeying toward wellness and love, please consider making a donation to help UYR continue to participate in rescues of this magnitude.

PLEASE NOTE: Roxie and the other dogs rescued from the puppy mill have never been around children and Roxie is very leery of young children. For this reason, Roxie cannot be placed in a home with children under the age of 10 years old.

UPDATED BIO 03/07/2019: Roxie is learning what life is outside of the horrible puppy mill where she spent her entire life. Since this property was operating as a puppy mill, inhumanely breeding dogs to sell for profit, many of these dogs were highly sought-after small breeds, and there were a hundred or so Yorkshire Terriers, Maltese, and Yorkie/Maltese mixes, in addition to many other small breed dogs.

Roxie is doing well in her foster home and is well on her way to being house-trained, which is remarkable this soon for a puppymill dog. How smart is that? Her appetite has increased which is a good thing since she didn’t have much of an appetite when she arrived in her foster home. Her foster parents are giving her lots of attention so that she will become comfortable with the human touch, feel and warmth and come to enjoy this wonderful feeling. She is getting comfortable walking on a leash, and is becoming less stressed with the sudden sounds of trucks and cars and everyday sounds that most dogs are familiar with.

The UYR members that pulled Roxie were shocked and saddened at the inhumane conditions in which these dogs were living. The property had more than 700 dogs being housed in a warehouse in too-small crates – with more than one dog per crate, and stacked one on top of the other. A majority of the dogs pulled were suffering from malnourishment, sores and abrasions, severe dental disease, matted hair, infections, severe eye injuries, congenital diseases and general severe neglect. The smell alone of the poor dogs was enough to cause a person to be nauseous and these dogs lived 24/7 365 days a year in this environment.

This poor girl most likely had litter after litter after litter. She is scared and unsure of what is happening. She has sores on her body and hair loss.This poor sweet girl will need a lot of love and patience. Trust will come slowly to her. There was very little if any human contact in her life before she was rescued from the puppy mill. She will have her spay, and this girl will never had another litter of puppies ever again. Roxie, like most of these puppy mill dogs, will have to heal medically and mentally. It will be a slow process but the rewards will be immense

Rusty

Rusty is 10 years old and weighs 11.11 pounds. This sweet Yorkie Mix is being fostered in Ocala, FL.

THANK YOU TO RUSTY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Michelle Hertzke

UPDATED BIO 03/17/2019: Rusty here - I am SO EXCITED! Why you may ask? Cuz my Foster Mom said that I am ready to be adopted – hooray!! She says that I am the best dog ever. Not to be bragging, but everyone at the dog park agrees. Some of my better qualities are that I am very laid-back. I love to be held but I am just as happy laying in the dog bed or on the sofa with my Foster Mom. I hardly ever bark and I am mostly house-trained, but remember when I move from my foster home to another home, I have to get used to the potty schedule and all the smells in my new home so there may be a few accidents until I know the lay of the land. Oh, one more thing - I love to go for car rides and will curl up in my car seat and take a nap. Bonus! I also get along with both dogs and cats.

I went to the dogtor recently and the nice dogtor said that I have elevated kidney levels and I didn’t particularly like the special food (Purina NF) that the vet suggested, so I will need to be on a low protein diet for the rest of my life. I have such a wonderful Foster Mom and she is cooking chicken and rice for me, which I love. I also need to take a medication (Azodyl Capsules) every day and I will be fine. The medicine can be purchased online and for one month its only $42. I do not have any problems taking my medication. I also have a Grade III/VI heart murmur – but no medications are indicated for my heart at this time. Again …. did I mention that I am the best dog ever?

I don’t like to play – yet - but I do enjoy running at the dog park. I would make a great companion for a senior who wants a quiet love bug like me. Hurry up and send in your applications. I am anxiously waiting.

UPDATED BIO 02/15/2019: Rusty has only been in his foster home for a short while and has adapted well. His foster mom says that he is very sweet and well-behaved. Rusty was found by some good Samaritans who notified UYR and we worked with the local shelter to get him posted as a lost dog and hopefully find his owners. Noo one came forward to claim this sweet boy, so Rusty is now a precious UYR foster dog.

He saw the vet today for his vaccinations, and he has a few medical issues that need to be addressed. He has gained a small amount of weight, but is still undernourished and his backbone is very prominent. His kidney levels were high and he has a Grade III/VI heart murmur – no medications are indicated for his heart at this time. He was put on antibiotics and an RX food. He was also started on Azodyl, which is a renal supplement with beneficial bacteria that metabolizes and flushes out uremic toxins and supports kidney function in the hopes his kidney levels will decrease. He will have follow-up lab done in a month to see if the values are lower. Rusty will have a much-needed dental once he feels better.

Please stay tuned to learn more about Rusty.

INITIAL BIO 02/12/2019: Hi, Rusty here. I am so happy now that I am in my foster home. I have doggie furbrother and even a fur-cat. I don’t mind them, but I really don’t care about becoming too friendly with them right now. I am most happy being with humans. I love the attention my foster mom and dad are giving me.

Here’s a few things about me so that you can get to know me a little better:

- I am a runner so my foster mommy makes sure I am always on a

leash when I am outside.

- I love going to the dog park so if I could find a home with a

fenced yard that would be an extra bonus.

- My foster mom told me that I am having my teeth cleaned and

getting all my shots this week. Hopefully after that visit with the doctor, I will be ready for my furever home.

- I haven’t barked since I’ve been with foster mom, so I’m a quiet

little boy.

- I am well-behaved and sweet.

If you are looking for cute and loveable fella for a forever companion, please complete an application. Hope to hear from you soon.

Sammy

MEET SAMMY. He is one of 20 dogs rescued by UYR recently from a horrendous puppy mill in Southern Georgia. Sammy is 5 years old and weighs a skinny 6 lbs. He is being fostered in Tallahassee, FL

UPDATED BIO 03/12/2019: Sweet Sammy is learning what life is outside of the horrible puppy mill where he spent his entire life. Since this property was operating as a puppy mill, inhumanely breeding dogs to sell for profit, many of these dogs were highly sought-after small breeds, and there were a hundred or so yorkshire terriers, maltese and yorkie/maltese mixes, in addition to many other small breed dogs.

Sammy is now sleeping in a soft bed in his foster home and has learned that his food and water come in a bowl and not thrown into the bottom of a wire crate. He saw the vet yesterday and had all his vaccinations. He was also heartworm negative, thank goodness. Sammy still needs to be neutered and have a dental before going to his forever home, He is very playful and loves having the freedom of running for the first time in his life. Keep in mind that Sammy is not socialized to be a companion animal, so it will take patience and understanding and lots of love to let him know that he is going to be okay and that the humans he will meet for the rest of his life will only touch him with loving hands and kind hearts. Sammy is a survivor for sure and is running around the puppy play yard trying to engage the other dogs in play. This speaks of the amazing resilience and true grit he possesses. View a short video of Sammy and his buddy Georgie (also from the puppy mill bust) playing outdoors – they are having a ball! Click here: https://youtu.be/csJsu6IEYWQ

Sammy slept in a soft bed his first night in his foster home, with food and water available to him. He does not know how to drink water out of a bowl, and is used to food being thrown into the crate for him to eat. But amazingly, he appears to be bright and happy this morning and comes up to his foster parents for attention and freely gives lots and lots of kisses. He is allowing his foster parents to hold him, which is quite unusual so soon after being rescued, but this speaks of the amazing resilience and true grit he possesses.

Sissy

Sissy is one of 11 dogs rescued by UYR recently from a horrendous puppy mill in Southern Georgia.  Sissy is an approximately 6 years old Maltese and weighs about 6 pounds.  She is being fostered in Spring Hill, FL.

THANK YOU TO SISSY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

UPDATED BIO 03/07/2019: Sweet Sissy is learning what life is outside of the horrible puppy mill where she spent her entire life. Since this property was operating as a puppy mill, inhumanely breeding dogs to sell for profit, many of these dogs were highly sought-after small breeds, and there were a hundred or so Yorkshire Terriers, Maltese and Yorkie/Maltese mixes, in addition to many other small breed dogs

Sissy is now wagging her tail – this is great news! She goes outside to do her business – another big accomplishment. She has a prim, proud walk so her confidence level is going up-up-up – yeah!. She is so adorable. She sleeps anywhere her Foster Mom places her, wrapped with baby blankets, and she now seeks out her little bed. She is finally eating kibble and drinking water out of a bowl.

Sissy needs a lot of love and reassurance, but is making huge strides.She has never been fed real meat like chicken, or canned food and has never walked on grass. She now seems to enjoy sitting on the grass in the sun – sweet!. She is expanding her knowledge of life every hour. Her Foster Mom & Dad are invested in making her life whole and reassuring her in so many ways that she is loved and safe.

I am such a happy girlie

I had a B-I-G surgery.
Florida
Tootsie

Tootsie is a sweet 10 year old, 11.12 pound Yorkie Mix. This little girl is most likely a Chorkie - a Yorkie/Chihuahua mix. She is being fostered in Odessa, FL.

THANK YOU TO TOOTSIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Mary Whitaker, Jean Kirwan, Ilene Rand, Ilene Rand

UPDATED BIO 02/09/2019: Foster mom continues to say that Tootsie is the sweetest little dog. She is happy all the time and her tail is constantly wagging. She is very smart and comes when called, and she loves sitting on your lap and especially loves cuddling. Tootsie loves to play fetch with her ball and wants to play with the other dogs in the house.

After coming into UYR from another rescue group, Tootsie has had quite a busy time. It was discovered that she had developed what appeared to be small mammary masses which appeared over a short period of time. After several consultations with two different vets, the decision was made to remove the mammary growths and do a biopsy to determine their origin. Tootsie had her B-I-G surgery on 02/04 and she is recuperating nicely and feeling better each day. The results from the biopsy showed that the masses were benign mammary gland adenomas and because the surgical excision was complete, local recurrence is unlikely. An adenoma (or neoplasm) is among the most common tumors of a female dog.

Tootsie will need to remain in her foster home for several weeks while a culture is being grown to determine the origin of her recurrent UTI’s. Once we have this information, we will be able to get her on the appropriate antibiotic and knock it out so that this little Princess can find her forever home. Tootsie should be good as new very soon!

Tootsie has had quite a lot going on with her since she was rescued by another rescue group from a county shelter, but she is a real trooper. UYR stepped up to take her from the other rescue group who thought she would have a better chance at being adopted from a breed-specific group. Her recent surgery was an unexpected expense and we are asking our angel donors to donate towards her surgery costs so that UYR can continue to help other little dogs like her.

PLEASE NOTE: Tootsie cannot be placed in a home with children under the age of 14 years old. No Exceptions please.

UPDATED BIO 01/18/2019: Tootsie is a total sweetheart and so very sweet. She came into UYR from another rescue group who felt she would do much better in a home with smaller dogs. Tootsie has a history of UTI's and while at the shelter where she was surrendered by her original owners, they removed bladder stones and fully vaccinated her. Tootsie recently saw the vet for yet another UTI and it was discovered that she may have a heart murmur and potential mammary masses that may require a big surgery. Stay tuned for more information about this adorable, happy and otherwise well-adjusted little girlie.

INITIAL BIO 01/5/2019: Say hello to sweet Tootsie. This little girl is sweeter than a tootsie roll and just as lovable. She was originally surrendered to a local animal shelter. While at the shelter, she had an operation to remove bladder stones and was fully vaccinated. She was pulled by another rescue group, however because they mostly had big dogs in the home, Tootsie was having a hard time fitting in. The rescue called United Yorkie Rescue to see if we can take this little girl, and of course we said yes.

Tootsie loves to cuddle, is the perfect lap dog, and will follow you everywhere. Tootsie doesn't love kids very much. Tootsie has fully recovered from the surgery to remove bladder stones. She enjoys the company of other dogs, and enjoys play time and lap time. She is a happy well-adjusted little girl and gets very attached to her person. She was attached to her previous foster mom, but since coming into UYR we saw that she will attach herself to whomever she goes with that shows her the love she so richly deserves. Tootsie is very affectionate and would like your attention 24/7. She loves walks, car rides and being with you wherever you go!

Tootsie is spayed, heartworm negative, fully vaccinated, microchipped, current on flea and heartworm preventatives, and has had a dental. She will do her business outside and on potty pads, but may mark occasionally when she goes into a new home until she gets accustomed to the new routine.

Tootsie is almost ready for her forever home and can be adopted as soon as her foster parents know what kind of home would be best for this sweetheart. She would love someone home with her most of the day. Tootsie doesn't like to be alone too long, since we know she loves her person so much and wants them with her as much as possible. Maybe Tootsie is the girl for you.

PLEASE NOTE: Tootsie cannot be placed in a home with children under the age of 14 years old. No Exceptions please.

I've Been Adopted!

To date we've spent $1578.90 on Tootsie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $215.00 in donations.

Tucker

This sweet little Yorkie boy is Tucker. Tucker is 4.5 years old and 5 pounds of cuteness. Tucker had surgery to correct his crippled right forelimb – please read his updated bio to see how you can help him. Tucker is being fostered in St. Augustine, FL..

THANK YOU TO TUCKER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

UPDATED BIO 02/22/2/19: Hello, Tucker here with my fabulous update and great news. First of all, I want to thank all of you that have been following me and my journey. I feel like a Rock Star. And most especially, I want to send a BIG thank you to all of you that have donated to my medical expenses so that I could get the surgery I desperately needed. Without your generosity, surgery would not have been possible.

I saw the surgeon a few days ago and she said I am doing just great. She says my itty bitty leg that was so damaged and broken is looking good after my very major surgery. I will have another radiograph done in just 2 more weeks to really show how well the healing process is going. I am doing so great that my doctor said I no longer need to be on pain medication. This is great news as I did not like those meds one bit. I did the best I could for Foster Mommy as I knew she really needed to get them in me. She did make it better by giving me treats after those nasty meds.

I am an awesome little fella and a very happy, loving, perfect little boy. How do I know that? Cuz’ my Foster Mommy tells me every day! I am still healing and won’t be ready to be adopted for 10 to 12 more weeks, but if you think you might be interested in giving me my perfect forever home, please click the link below to submit your adoption application. Please feel free to contact my Foster Mommy for any additional information that you would like to know about me and my awesomeness.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Tucker's tiny size, he can only be adopted into a home with children 15 years old or older. No exceptions.

UPDATE 02/08/2019: Little Sweet Tucker came home today from his BIG surgery. He did well and it sounds like his surgery was a success. His recovery will be a very long and difficult process; he will need to be crated for at least 10 weeks or longer. This is so hard for such a young 4.5 year old active little man. Foster Mommy is currently counting the hours that she can give him his next dose of pain meds. He is in so much pain and whimpering from the pain. Foster Mommy will wait to go to bed until he is able to have his next dose so he can sleep pain-free.

Tucker is getting a bit insistent (and vocal) on being taken out of the crate and being held by Foster Mommy and of course Foster Mommy is happy to do as told. In several days, Tucker hopes to be able to take stroller rides around the neighborhood to get some fresh air and meet Foster Mommy’s dear friends and neighbors. Stayed tuned please for updates on this little man’s progress as he heals and recovers from his major surgery.

THANK YOU to everyone who donated towards Tucker's surgical expenses - without your generous donations, he may not have been able to have the surgery. Tucker has a long way to go, but at least his journey has started. Please stay tuned for updates on how he is doing.

UPDATE 02/07/2019: GREAT NEWS! Tucker had his B-I-G surgery today. His healing could take up to 12 weeks. His wrist is still weak, and it is hoped that the splint will help. His bone is crooked and without breaking it in several places there was no way to fix it. He will walk on his foot now and not his elbow and that’s the result we wanted. He will need to walk and bear weight on it for only 5 minutes a day. Otherwise, he will need strict crate rest for this period of time. THANK YOU to everyone who donated towards Tucker's surgical expenses - without your generous donations, he may not have been able to have the surgery. Tucker has a long way to go, but at least his journey has started. Please stay tuned for updates on how he is doing.

UPDATED BIO 02/06/2019: Tucker will be having his B-I-G surgery tomorrow – hooray! UYR wishes to thank all of the amazing angel donors who made it possible for him to have this delicate and complicated procedure to surgically correct one of his forelimbs that was broken in the past two years and never properly cared-for. This poor little fella has been in pain for that long – both of his forelimbs were broken during this period of time, but one is worse than the other. Tucker still has a long recuperation ahead of him – please see frequent updates that will be posted here. We are still needing donations as the high-end estimate for his surgery is $3,000+ and we have collected $2,400. If Tucker’s story has moved you to donate we are always appreciative of each and every donation – no donation is too small.

THANK YOU TO ALL THE DONORS who made this surgery possible – now Tucker will be able to be pain-free for the first time in 2 years. Wow.

UPDATED BIO 02/02/2019: GREAT NEWS! United Yorkie Rescue has received some amazing news! We have been told by the specialty orthopedic clinic that we have a donation of the surgical plate (cost = $300) and a discount on the surgical fee of $200! Wahoo! With this information and the discount that UYR is receiving on the surgical option for Tucker, we are hoping to go forward with the surgery! The total cost is still expected to be $2,500+, and we are hoping that we will be able to raise that amount so that little Tucker can walk pain-free for the first time in two years. The surgeon feels confident that with the proper rehabilitation and rest after surgery, that it will be successful. Tucker will need to be crated 24/7 with the exception of being taken out to do his business for at least 6-8 weeks. We can do that!

If Tucker’s sad story has pulled at your heartstrings, please consider making a donation towards the costs of his surgery. All donations are greatly appreciated no matter the amount. We have committed to this little fella and want to do everything possible to make sure he can live a pain-free life. This little fella has been in immense pain for literally half of his life! That stops now, and your donation will ensure this will happen.

UPDATED BIO 01/31/2019: Little Tucker was surrendered to United Yorkie Rescue by his owner one month ago. Although we were given a very brief history on a right forelimb break approximately two years ago, it was only when the vet notes were sent to us that it was revealed that Tucker had fractures of both forelimbs in the past two years. The general practice vet bandaged and splinted the fractures but continued to strongly recommend that Tucker be seen by a veterinarian orthopedist. The previous owner did not take little Tucker to the specialist and as a result, Tucker is left with two crippled forelimbs that are painful to walk on. So heartbreaking for little Tucker.

Tucker has what is referred to as a bilateral antebrachium (the part of the forelimb between the wrist and the elbow) deformity due to malunion/chronic radias/ulna fractures. In laymen’s terms, because the fractures were not stabilized properly when the injuries occurred, and he continued to walk on both of them – this caused significant displacement of the bone fragments that were shattered. This was devastating news to our UYR family, and we were so saddened that Tucker has had to suffer with these untreated injuries for two years.

After seeing several orthopedic specialists, we found out that there are two treatment recommendations – one is a surgical correction which would involve cutting the bone and realignment and stabilizing both legs with bone plates, bone grafts and screws. Because Tucker is so tiny and the injuries were occurred some time ago, complications exist in 50% of cases, and if this happens, it could result in a revision surgery. The estimated cost for each leg would be between $3,200 - $4,000. Due to both the costs and the possibility that the surgery may not work, UYR has not opted for the surgery.

The second treatment recommendation is to fit Tucker with orthopedic braces which he would need to wear for the rest of his life. These braces will be custom-molded to his forelimbs and would include padding that would need to be changed/replaced regularly so that wounds would not develop due to weight-bearing on the fracture ends. The custom orthopedic braces range in price starting at around $700 per limb, or a total of $1,400+. This is the option that UYR has opted for and we are waiting for the molds to arrive at the specialty orthopedic clinic; once the molds are taken, they will be sent off to a specialty prostetic company to make the custom braces for little Tucker.

Tucker is an amazingly strong and courageous little boy who tries to enjoy his young doggie life in spite of the serious issue with both of his forelimbs. He is playful and gets along with the other dogs in the home and hobbles around to the best of his ability. He has such a sweet personality, and loves to snuggle under the covers, especially on the recent cool’ish nights in Florida. He loves to play with toys, eat carrot chips and lying in the sunshine.

We are hopeful that the custom braces will be a permanent fix for Tucker, but that cannot be determined until we see how he adjusts and progresses with them. At this time, Tucker is not ready to be adopted and will be in foster care for several more months after he is fitted with his orthodic braces. We are currently accepting adoption applications which will be held and reviewed when he is ready to go to his furever home.

United Yorkie Rescue stepped up to the plate to rescue Tucker and we will do everything we can to ensure that he can be pain-free and a happy little dog. Tucker’s medical expenses will be high, and we couldn’t help dogs like him without the help of our amazing donors. If you find it in your heart to donate to this sweet boy’s medical expenses, please visit his bio page at unitedyorkierescue.org and donate by clicking on the PayPal donation link. Remember, every donation counts and without your donations, we would not be able to continue to rescue deserving dogs like Tucker.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Tucker's tiny size, he can only be adopted into a home with children 15 years old or older. No exceptions.

The general practice vet bandaged and splinted the fractures but continued to strongly recommend that Tucker be seen by a veterinarian orthopedist. Sadly, that didn’t happen.

Fast forward – Tucker is an amazingly strong and courageous little boy who tries to enjoy his young doggie life in spite of the serious issue with both of his forelimbs. He is playful and gets along with the other dogs in the home and hobbles around to the best of his ability. Tucker has had a consultation with an orthopedic veterinarian at Blue Pearl and new radiographs were taken. These radiographs showed the great extent not only of his initial injuries, but because he continued to walk on his broken legs, more bone damage occurred and was revealed in the new radiographs.

Tucker has what is referred to as a bilateral antebrachium (the part of the forelimb between the wrist and the elbow) deformity due to malunion/chronic radias/ulna fractures. In laymen’s terms, because the fractures were not stabilized properly when the injuries occurred, and he continued to ambulate on both of them – this caused significant displacement of the bone fragments that were shattered.

The custom orthopedic braces range in price from $200 - $600 per limb.

Tucker will have a follow-up appointment on 01/17 and will likely have molds taken at that time so that the orthopedic braces can be manufactured. We are hopeful that this will be a permanent fix for Tucker, but that cannot be determined until we see how he progresses with the braces. At this time, Tucker is not ready to be adopted and will be in foster care for several more months after he is fitted with his orthodic braces.

Initial bio 12-12-18 Little Tucker was sadly surrendered when his owner was told that she needed major surgery that would send her to bed for weeks and into a slow recovery and rehab for months. She knew she wouldn't be able to care for Tucker. With tears in her eyes and sadness in her heart she knew Tucker needed have a better life where he would get the love and care she could no longer give him, so he became a United Yorkie Rescue dog. .

Tucker is a beautiful white Yorkie with light gray markings. He may be a Biewer Yorkie with very unusual coloring. Tucker had an injury to his front right foot about two years ago and it appears that, although it does not seem to bother him or slow him down at all, it needs to be examined and x-rayed by a vet. We will need to know more about this injury and what may have to be done for it before Tucker will be able to go to his forever home.

Tucker was great in the car to his foster home. He has started to make himself comfortable and play with the other dogs in his foster home. He gets along with other dogs and he likes people too. He seems to be an all around great little guy.

Tucker will be seeing the vet very soon. We are hoping that his leg won't need any major medical care, but we will know more after his vet appointment. Please come back soon when we know more about Tucker, his medical needs, and his little personality.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Tucker's tiny size, he can only be adopted into a home with children 15 years old or older. No exceptions.


To date we've spent $2830.24 on Tucker's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $3001.00 in donations.

Webster, a Puppy Mill Survivor
Florida
Webster

WEBSER HAS A PENDING ADOPTION AND IS NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS. Webster is one of 20 dogs rescued by UYR over the weekend from a horrendous  puppy mill in Southern Georgia.  Webster is estimated to be around 5 years old and weighs around 8 pounds. He is being fostered in Leesburg, FL.

Update 3/9/19

Webster was one of 20 dogs UYR rescued from a South Georgia puppy mill last weekend. Webster could go on and on about the terrible conditions there and how he had almost given up hope of being rescued. But Webster feels like we have talked enough sadness and he is ready to put the sad times behind him and focus on the PAWSITIVE! Webster feels like the luckiest Yorkie who ever lived. He could barely see when his rescuers came for him because of the heavy matting on his face and body but he just KNEW something good was happening. Webster put his puppy paws together, said a puppy prayer and decided to TRUST the hands that gently pulled him from his cage and GO FOR IT! Within hours he found himself soaking in sink full of warm water with gentle hands rubbing him ... and slowly but surely the dirt and matted fur began to fall away. A couple of hours later Webster was FREE and he has not looked back. Webster is such a sweet, gentle, loving boy who is also very smart. One week ago today he didn’t know how to eat or drink from a bowl, walk on the ground without circling, play with toys or do any of the things normal dogs do. Webster is learning things at an amazing pace. His fur brother and fur sister have been working overtime making Webster feel welcome and teaching him how to “Dog.” Webster now sits in laps and gives kisses, eats and drinks from a bowl and goes up and down steps. Webster is not house-trained AT ALL and due to his years in the puppy mill he will probably be very challenging to house-train. Webster has been to the Dogtor and other than some skin issues, gunky ears and moderate tarter on his teeth he is in surprisingly good health given where he came from. He does have bilateral luxating patellas and it is likely at some point in his life he will need to have these surgically fixed but the Vet does not recommend surgery at this time. He was a good boy at the Vet and gave everyone kisses. Today he had his first ever professional grooming and he did great. Webster will be neutered and have his dental on March 25th so it will be early to mid-April before he can go to his FUREVER home. Webster’s foster Mom asks that anyone considering adopting read up on what to expect when adopting a puppy mill dog so there are no surprises. Because of the life Webster has had up until now. Foster Mom will be very, very picky about who gets to adopt him to make sure that the REST of Webster’s story will be one of unconditional love and nothing but happy endings. Webster’s care costs to get him to a healthy, adoptable state will be around $1000. Webster would LOVE any help towards those and thanks everyone who has donated so far!

An update from Webster’s foster Mom:

My foster Webster. I call him Webster Wiggles because he wiggles when he walks and it is so precious! He came from the Georgia puppy mill along with 700 others. His fur was so badly matted he almost couldn’t even go potty 😢. It took hours to cut mats out to get him to a place I could even bathe him. It took 4 shampoos to get the rinse water from being black. His nails are still so long and claw-like (we will let the Vet address those) but he is blossoming each hour and is such a sweet boy. The outside part is easy to heal....but I worry about what he has endured and the possible lasting impact. I am hopeful he wasn’t too traumatized in that awful place he came from. I can’t wait until his Vet appointment on Friday so I can learn his estimated age and I hope all tests and exams show he is mostly healthy. He has a few sores and minor skin issues. Now let’s hope he is heartworm negative and his labs are good.....then we can schedule his neuter and his dental cleaning and any needed extractions. Getting each one of the puppy mill dogs healthy will cost between $1000 and $1500. Double that if they have a chronic condition like heart or lung issues, neurological problems or need surgery beyond spay or neuter and a dental. My rescue group United Yorkie Rescue took TWENTY just like him or in worse shape. I love this boy so much and want him to have everything he needs and the love he deserves! I pray that there are people out there that won’t mind that he runs away when you approach and cowers and spins and will wear out the floor running in circles. I pray too that there are people out there who understand that he has peed and pooped in his crate (which was also his bed and food bowl) his whole life so that whatever natural instinct he may have once had to not eliminate where you sleep is long gone because Webster had no choice. It is as natural for him to lay in his excrement as it is for you and I to breathe. I hope someone will understand why he may never be anything CLOSE to being house-trained and love him anyway and NEVER EVER put him in a cage again. I want SO MUCH JOY AND SO MUCH LOVE for my sweet foster boy and I will not rest or let him go until I find his perfect happily ever after. I’ve got you Webster. I’ve got your back.....your front.....your sides and everything in between. You can donate towards Webster’s care by clicking the PayPal button below.

INITIAL BIO 03/02/2019:  Webster has just arrived in his foster home and is learning what life is like outside of the horrible puppy mill where he spent his entire life. Since this property was operating as a puppy mill, inhumanely breeding dogs to sell for profit, many of these dogs were highly sought-after small breeds, and there were a hundred or so yorkshire terriers, maltese and yorkie/maltese mixes, in addition to many other small breed dogs.

The UYR members that pulled Webster were shocked and saddened at the inhumane conditions in which these dogs were living.  The property had more than 700 dogs being housed in a warehouse in too-small crates – with more than one dog per crate, and stacked one on top of the other. A majority of the dogs pulled were suffering from malnourishment, sores and abrasions, severe dental disease, matted hair, infections, severe eye injuries, congenital diseases and general severe neglect.  The smell alone of the poor dogs was enough to cause a person to be nauseous and these dogs lived 24/7 365 days a year in this environment.

Last night for the first time, Webster slept in a soft bed, was given nutritious food and had clean water available to him. He had the dense mats that bound his skin and caused oozing sores gently removed and he was bathed and lovingly trimmed so that he could see the world around him. His paws touched grass and a yard where he was allowed to roam free. Webster and his rescue-mates do not know how to drink water out of a bowl. He is used to food being thrown into the crate for him to eat.  But amazingly, he appears to be bright and happy this morning and comes up to his foster parents for attention and freely gives lots and lots of kisses.  He is allowing his foster parents to hold him, which is quite unusual so soon after being rescued, but this speaks of the amazing resilience and true grit he possesses.

Please watch for postings on all 20 dogs that came into UYR.    This was a huge endeavor that took a lot of supportive members who all volunteered their time and without our amazing fostering members, we would not have been able to save so many.   UYR is very proud and humbled to have participated in bringing happiness and new lives and love to 20 little doggies.  The vetting expenses on these little dogs will be huge, so if you have been moved by Sammy’s story and the stories of the other 19 dogs who are journeying toward wellness and love, please consider making a donation to help UYR continue to participate in rescues of this magnitude.

Adoption Pending

I got groomed and I am looking so good

I feel so much better now
Florida
Wrigley

Wrigley is a 5 year old Yorkie mix'ish and weighs 9.11 pounds. He has some special needs. Wrigley is being fostered in Leesburg, FL.

THANK YOU TO WRIGLEY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Irene and Peter Havas in memory of darling Happy, Corrinne Mueller, Bernadette Robinson, Maureen McCosker

UPDATED BIO 03/07/2019: Wrigley is the sweetest, nicest and most well-behaved little boy. He hardly ever barks, he gets along with everyone, he seems to like all people, all dogs, and we think even cats. He rides great in the car and walks nicely on the leash, though he much prefers the fenced backyard. His foster parents think he is even house-trained. It seems he does all his business outside, and although they are not sure he is 100 percent house-trained, they have never yet seen him have an accident inside the house,

There is absolutely nothing negative to say about sweet Wrigley and his delightful personality. But -- on Wrigley's initial exam, a heart murmur Grade 4 out of 6 was detected. UYR has scheduled an echocardiogram on March 18th. This will give us more information and confirm if the heart murmur is due to his Mitral Valve possibly not working like it's supposed to. At this time the vet said that he is showing little to no symptoms of a mitral valve issue except a very slight enlargement of his heart. He currently doesn't need any treatment besides 1/4 of a pill twice a day to help prevent and slow down any worsening of his heart or other symptoms from presenting themselves. The echocardiogram will tell us a lot more about the murmur and how we should proceed with further medications and treatments. He is on a low-sodium dog food and takes an Omega-3 supplement. All this will benefit his heart health.

Wrigley may develop more heart problems in the future, but for now he is active and looking for love. If you are interested in Wrigley (and how could you not be?) and understand his special needs, please submit an adoption application. You will find that application on our website at www.UYR.us. Wrigley loves people and a home where someone is home most of the time would be his perfect home. His foster mom is not sure how he would be with children since he has not been around them since coming to his foster home. But he is so well-behaved, he may be okay with well-behaved children over the age of 10.

Wrigley's echocardiogram and consultation will be expensive. Please think of this sweet boy and make a donation towards his medical care. Every penny, every dime, and every dollar adds up. Thank you so much for thinking of Wrigley.

Initial bio 2-26-19 This little guy found himself in the shelter waiting for his family to come find him. Sadly no one came for him until United Yorkie Rescue decided to take a chance on this sweet boy. Yes, we said take a chance because the shelter news was not all good. However, in spite of what the shelter said United Yorkie Rescue could not leave this young, adorable fellow to languish in the shelter any longer. The shelter vet detected a possible grade 5 out of 6 heart murmur. Their vet also said there may be a possibility of Mitral Valve Disease, though no tests were done to substantiate this. Wrigley does have heavy dental calculus on a lot of his teeth, and live fleas were found on him. The shelter gave him flea preventative and a dewormer, but nothing else.

It is very possible the degree of the heart murmur may be caused by the severity of his bad teeth and the stress of living life on the streets for as long as he did. At 5 years old there is a good chance he is too young for the heart issues the shelter thinks may be a possibility.

It was because he was on the streets he had fleas and his coat was matted. Wrigley needs a bath and a grooming, but most of all he needs a visit to the vet. Wrigley will get blood work done and an x-ray of his heart. He will also get a dental very soon. Once that is all done we are hoping this little fellow, who may need medication, will live many more healthy and happy years.

There will soon be so much more coming on Wrigley after his vet visit. New pictures of Wrigley coming soon too.


To date we've spent $1103.07 on Wrigley's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $460.20 in donations.

Lily Mae

Lily Mae is an 8-year-old, 12-pound Yorkie girl being fostered in Hiawasee, GA.

THANK YOU TO LILY MAE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

April Bradshaw, Holly Keller

3/9/19: Meet adorable Lily Mae. She comes to us from a loving owner who became physically unable to care for her. Her owner was very sad to have to give Lily up but she wanted the best for Lily and reached out to UYR to make sure that Lily would go to a great home that would give her the care and attention she needs. Lily has just landed in her foster home so we will be getting to know her over the next few days. Her owner stated that Lily is a very sweet and loving dog who has a tendency to get nervous around young children and younger, high energy dogs. Lily Mae is a bit on the chubby side and has some minor skin irritations but these things are very easily resolved. Lilly will have a well doggie check within the next few days to see if she has any unmet health needs, have her microchip inserted and start the search for her perfect person who will love her the rest of her days. Lilly must go to a home with no young children since tiny humans make her anxious. A fenced yard would be a plus. Stay tuned for updates as we get to know her better.


To date we've spent $748.26 on Lily Mae's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $160.00 in donations.

Avery
Indiana
Avery

Meet Avery, a 1.5 year old, 17 pound Yorkie Mix. He is being fostered near Fort Wayne, IN.

AVERY IS A SPECIAL NEEDS BOY; EXPERIENCED OWNERS ONLY.

THANK YOU TO AVERY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Wendy Klinke

12/30/2018 UPDATE: Avery will need a permanent home with an experienced adopter who has worked with trauma dogs. The home must be a quiet setting with a secure fence to ensure Avery does not flee and escape. Preferred candidate would be an owner who has previously adopted a trauma dog, behavioral specialist, or an experienced trainer. Patience is key.

UPDATE BIO. 11/02/18. “Even though Avery is not ready for adoption, I wanted to post an update on his progress”... He has come quite far, and we are very happy! He will be 2 years old on 12/17 and still weighs around 16 pounds. He is a Border Terrier/Yorkie mix, so that accounts for his size.

He comes when he is called, knows what “no” and “enough” mean. If he is barking a bit too much, we say “enough” and he stops. He lets us walk up and pet him, and is very curious, as to what we are doing, when not in the same room.

Avery had is first haircut. We took him to a groomer who is trained in grooming puppy mill and skittish dogs. He was skittish, but never tried to bite, which is a very good sign of his demeanor.

Avery is house trained and potty pad (just for potty) trained. He will bark, or go to the door when he needs to go out. At nighttime, Avery will continue to bark until one of us gets up to let him out.

He LOVES chew toys, and playing with the other dogs! He has also become less skittish, but still has a ways to go until he is ready for adoption. We’ll see what happens in another 3 months.

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 $76.75 on Avery's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $76.75 in donations.

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. 11/24/2018 Foster Mom has determined that Maggie May will need a VERY SPECIAL Adoptive Mom/Dad. Maggie May continues to have neurological deficits due to lesions on her brain, likely from trauma. Maggie is currently on daily Predisone, and she likely will need this medication for the rest of her life. Maggie May has a tendency to run in circles at times, regurgitate her food if she eats too much in one sitting and ducks whenever someone reaches to pet her. Maggie May needs a stay at home owner who she can bond with and to love her. She is very loving once she gains trust of the humans in her life and she is just the cutest little lady. If you can give this special needs Yorkie a good home with understanding of her limitations, please fill out an application. Adoption applications will be considered for Indiana, Illinois and Wisconsin only.

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.


To date we've spent $3632.60 on Maggie May's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $2200.92 in donations.

Amelia

Meet precious Amelia. She is one of 20 dogs rescued by UYR over the weekend from a horrendous puppy mill in Southern Georgia. She is estimated to be 4-years-old and she weighs 7.5 pounds. She is being fostered in Elizabethtown, KY

THANK YOU TO AMELIA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Michelle Hertzke

3/3/19: Amelia was rescued along with 700 other dogs from a South Georgia puppy mill. Amelia and so many others were used to make lots of puppies and generate lots of money for the puppy mill owner. The puppies they produced were beautifully “staged” on their website posed in cute outfits on mounds of fluffy white feathers with bows in their hair while Amelia and all the other “puppy parents” languished in a warehouse with crates stacked floor to ceiling with only the most basic provisions. Amelia should be bitter and afraid of all humans but miraculously, she is NOT! Amelia is a cuddle bug who loves nothing more than to sit in her person’s lap and soak up the love. Like the other mill dogs, Amelia suffers from hair loss, skin irritation, and dental neglect. Amelia will have her spay and dental scheduled soon and is well on her way to becoming the Yorkie princess she is destined to become! If you’d like to help this Yorkie Princess in the making to become just that….it is easy to do! You can donate by clicking the PayPal button below. Thank You!

Buttons the Puppy Mill Survivor
Kentucky
Buttons (Harry P)

Buttons is a 6-pound, 5-year-old (estimated) Yorkie boy being fostered in Elizabethtown, KY.

THANK YOU TO BUTTONS' RESCUE ANGELS!

Irene and Peter Havas in memory of darling Happy, Michelle Hertzke

Initial Bio 3/6/19 Meet handsome Buttons! Buttons was rescued along with 700 other dogs from a South Georgia puppy mill. Buttons can hardly believe what the last few days have brought. Up until just a few days ago, his universe was limited to a 2 x 2 metal cage. Occasionally someone would throw a handful of kibble into his crate and bring water. Buttons was never held or cuddled or spoken softly to and made to know he was loved and safe. Instead he was a stud dog and his worth was tied to how many females he could impregnate. Buttons fits the typical puppy mill stud mold. He is a small dog and breeders love small males because they can be bred to larger females which means more puppies to be sold and more money. With 700 dogs on site, we are guessing a lot of puppies were generated. At an average of $1000 a puppy, couldn’t some of that been spent for an occasional grooming? A bath? A staff member to come in and walk Buttons and his fellow “inmates” occasionally? Apparently not so for Buttons because he came to use so dirty, matted and poorly cared for that it was hard to even tell if there was a dog inside the smelly unrecognizable wad of twisted fur. But the wad moved, and breathed and yes, even offered licks to the strange hands that pulled him from one crate and gently eased him into another. Then there was a long drive that Buttons came to hear someone call a “Freedom Ride.” What did that mean?????? Buttons only knows that kind words were spoken on his long ride and gentle hands reached in to pet him. Every couple of hours stops were made where he was offered fresh food and his cage pads were changed. There were soft beds to lay in too. Eventually the car stopped, and he was taken inside. Soon after he was taken inside a warm place and he felt kind hands start to gently cut away to matted fur that kept him from seeing and moving well. It felt like the weight of the world falling away from him and he soon was able to see the faces of his rescuers. He was so happy! He felt the warm soothing bath water and hands rubbing him softly and all the years of filth and stench began to wash away. Buttons was FREE! You can see from Buttons “Before” and “After” shots what a metamorphosis he went through. Surprisingly, Buttons only health concerns are skin issues (irritation, missing hair, etc.) and poor dental condition. Both of these are easily (if not inexpensively) addressed and after his skins clears up a bit he will have his much-needed dental cleaning, extractions (if needed) and neuter. Yes, Button’s baby-making days are over, and he can start the process of learning to be a normal, happy doggy. Buttons has absolutely NO CLUE about the proper places to go “potty” and has been “anointing” his foster home with lots of liquid gold LOL. He is now sporting a cute belly band until he figures out that all the Yorkies in his foster home get yummy treats when they do “their business” outside or on the potty pad. Buttons is a bit skittish like the other puppy mill dogs, but he does love to be petted and is getting along well with his foster siblings. Buttons is “cute as a button” already but will have a professional grooming this weekend will be EVEN CUTER (is that even possible?) Stay tuned as we get to know him better! Buttons Veterinary Care and grooming costs will be around $1000 or more. Please consider donating towards his care using the PayPal button below.

Massachusetts
Casper

Casper is a sweet 7 year old, 6 pound boy being fostered in North Dartmouth, MA.

UPDTAE BIO. 3/14/19 Hi, it's me Casper. Since arriving in MA., I've been to the Vet man because my skin is in terrible condition, FM says it makes her hurt to look at it Truthfully it doesn't feel good, but I still roll over for belly rubs every chance I get! I have medicine that goes in my food, a special shampoo that has to be done 2x a week and this is the worst part, when FM has to spray this STUFF on my skin. I give her a hard time, she feels bad because she thinks it stings. I can't have my Dental till this gets under control, maybe in a few weeks.

The good news is I've gained over a pound. FM says I'm very cute and need more practice with house manners, and work on my potty training. I would do best in an adult only home, little children make me nervous since being exposed to a disrespectful child and adult. I'm going to look beautiful in a few weeks, I'll keep you posted.

On 2/28/19 I took a long road trip from NYC to Massachusetts. I met a lady and man that I now call foster mom and foster dad. Foster mom was so upset to see me, she kept saying "how can someone allow this to happen"? You see I was at this Shelter in Brooklyn NY. In December 2018 a family adopted me, and I was with them for about 2 months and they returned me. I was 10 lbs then and now I'm 6 lbs. I have a skin condition that I didn't have back in December. The Shelter had to shave me and foster mom promised that it will get better and I will look beautiful. When I was adopted from the shelter a family member was aggravating me and trying to bother me, in an attempt to train me and teach me to put up with being poked and so I snapped at him. Then there was a 6 year old child that was pulling on my collar and pinched me so I snapped at him. Didn't they know I was so scared and unsure of them and my surroundings, I didn't want to do it and I didn't do anything that needed medical attention. I thought they wanted me and loved me but then I had to go back to the big scary, loud shelter. Foster mom says I'm a good boy and just need some down time to adjust. I'll be going to the Vet man soon to see what I have on my skin. I'll bark at you later with an update. P.S. I'm a bit of a velcro dog.

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, John Sauser

UPDATE BIO. 10/26/18. Kermit “Kermie” is an adorable 9-year old Yorkie who weighs about 15 lbs. Kermie is smart, sensitive, and sweet and shy. She will shy away and get very panic-stricken if she hears loud noises or yelling. She gets along well with other small dogs (once she gets to know them (NO BIG DOGS)) and children.

She can sometimes do resource guarding but is getting better with that. She loves to play with toys, give kisses, and cuddle. She loves taking walks. She is crate trained. She loves treats and is very food motivated. She is on a grain free and chicken free diet. Though we do watch what she consumes because she eats like she is starving. She takes ½ of an allergy pill twice daily. She never has grown back all her hair but she does have peach fuzz in areas that were bald. She wears a t-shirt during the summer to prevent sunburn and sweaters during the winter.

She is not 100% house trained. She can go all day in her crate without going but needs to let out immediately to use the facilities outside. We have tried for months to potty pad train her and she just won’t. As long as she is let out routinely she is pretty good. In the evening she is blocked in our kitchen and she can hold it. Sometimes we let her in with us later in the night. She will need a knowledgeable owner who is patient, loving, and will provide a positive environment. She will require a completely fenced in backyard. No exceptions!

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 $45.00 in donations.

Harley Davidson

Meet Harley a 10 -year-old, 7-8 pound Yorkie Mix boy being fostered in South Carolina.

THANK YOU TO HARLEY DAVIDSON'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Irene and Peter Havas, Candice Knaps

Bio Update 1/22/19

Harley is doing well and making good progress in his foster home. He continues to learn to trust and form trusting relationships with humans. He always has a very happy disposition. He enjoys an active lifestyle spending time outdoors. He likes a mix of walking and jogging on his outings. He would be best suited for a quiet home as he is still working through some sound reactivity, but continues to make progress. He is a well behaved, sweet, and affectionate boy looking for love! If you are Harley’s perfect person apply to adopt him today!

Initial Bio 10/09/2018

Meet Harley! He is a 10 year old 8 pound male Yorkie. He is very active and in great health. Harley has so much love to give, he is a perfect companion dog. He likes to follow you around and sit in your lap. Harley has a beautiful silky coat and classic fawn and cobalt coloring. He is very smart & learns new concepts quickly. Harley is house trained, wee pad trained, harness leash trained & knows basic commands like his name, stay, get down, & lay down. He enjoys daily walks & loves off leash running, so a fenced in yard would be most ideal. He is an excellent look out guard dog, as Yorkies are known for. He only barks a warning bark if he hears something, then goes & checks it out, but otherwise he is very quiet. Harley came to us as a malnourished, matted, flea infested owner surrender by way of a high kill animal control facility. With all of that behind him he's ready to start his new life, maybe with you!


To date we've spent $649.11 on Harley Davidson's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $70.00 in donations.

Andy Dufresne (Remus)

Meet precious Andy Dufresne. He is one of 20 dogs rescued by UYR over the weekend from a horrendous puppy mill in Southern Georgia. He weighs approximately 8 lbs. and is being fostered in the Nashville, TN area

THANK YOU TO ANDY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Michelle Pannnoni, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Behnaz Memarzadeh

3/3/19: Andy is aptly named after a human who faced unbelievable obstacles to secure his freedom JUST LIKE ANDY! Andy is a puppy mill boy who lived all of his life confined to a cage along with 700 other dogs rescued from South Georgia. Because of this, Andy is just now learning to do things that come naturally to most dogs. Andy has a funny shaped paw and has a limp due to legs being twisted and having inadequate room to move in his cage. His leg muscles are atrophied due to non-use but Andy is determined to push past that. He is just able to walk somewhat normally but is unable to jump or run. Andy has no clue where he should go potty so he must wear a belly band for now as he begins his learning. He still sees toys as “foreign objects” but notices his fur brother likes them. Andy gulps water too fast and sometimes spits up. His foster Mom is helping him understand we have lots of water and food ALL THE TIME here so no need to rush sweet boy. He doesn’t eat from a bowl yet so he is hand fed for now. We think Andy might have been taken from his mother way too soon. He sticks like glue to his foster mom and wants to “nurse” on her fingers. Andy is a gentle soul who loves to cuddle up close with his head tucked under foster Moms chin. His starting to interact with his fur brother and will wrestle a bit and has a tiny chew bone he likes. His is curious and observant. He will not go outside on his own; he just trembles in fear when outside and foster Mom carries him both ways. Andy is discovering the wonder of bellyrubs. Loves to have his head and ears massaged and to have underside of chin rubbed. He will sit still as long as you'll keep rubbing. Andy is battling bad bilateral ear infections and his teeth are badly in need of a dental. All that will be addressed before he goes to his forever home. Andy and the others could use some love! If you are able, please send some his way. To donate click the PayPal button below.

THANK YOU TO BAXTER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Laura Felton

3/3/19: Baxter is another one of the little boys that was rescued from a Georgia puppy mill along with 700 other dogs. He and the others were in really bad shape as you can see from his before and after photos. He is one special and amazing little boy. He is doing wonderful considering the horrid conditions in which he came. He is loving all the freedom and enjoys playing with his foster brothers. He loves his treats and has never been late for a meal and will even cuddle on your lap !! He had his wellness exam with a good report. Blood work checked out perfect, all vaccinations complete and he is getting neutered and a dental on Friday. Please know that Baxter is not house-trained after years in the puppy mill and his adopter needs to understand this may be very difficult to accomplish so will need to have lots of patience. We can’t wait to watch all these babies blossom so please check back for updates as we get to know this precious boy! Baxter and all the puppy mill dogs need lots of Veterinary care which is expensive but so necessary to get him to a healthy adoptable state.

Update 3/12/2019

Derby had his MRI and we FINALLY have answers. Derby has Encephalitis. This is the chronic form, actually an autoimmune type process where Derby's immune system is attacking his brain....not the kind that come from bacteria or a virus. He will have it his whole life. That is the bad news. The good news is that it may be treatable. We have no guarantees at all but the dose of steroids Derby was on was way to low to have an effect. The neurologist Vet has multiplied his dose times THREE to be given twice a day. Now it is “wait and see” time. We return to the neurologist in two weeks to see what kind of progress (if any) Derby is making. If we have a good response, then it is likely Derby can be managed medically by staying on high dose steroids for life. If we do not have a good response, then it is not likely that Derby can be helped. We don’t want to think about that; not yet anyway. Of course, long term steroid use is not without its risks too, such as immunosupression, etc. so if Derby is able to be adopted he will need a very special adopter who has the heart, means and determination to make sure Derby has regular (every 3-6 month) Vet checks and access to specialty Vet care when/if he needs it. Still, it could have been much worse news and we now know that Derby at least has a fighting chance! Thank you for your continued support! If you would like to help us pay for Derby’s very expensive care we would really appreciate it! We have set up a You Caring Fund Raiser for Derby here: http://gf.me/u/rc6v3u

Updated Bio 3/8/19 Derby continues to exhibit his neurological signs even though he has been on medications for over a week. He is on steroids to calm inflammation and sedatives to keep him from constantly circling and wobbling. He has been evaluated by two general Veterinarians who have referred Derby to a Veterinary neurologist. Unfortunately, the MRI was broken at the Speciality Vet so we have to wait until Tuesday March 12th for him to have his MRI. We hope that this will give us the answers we need to understand WHY Derby exhibits such severe symptoms and we hope it is something that we are able to fix or at least treat and manage medically. The general Vets did not give us a lot of hope, but at only two years and two pounds we simply have to give Derby every opportunity to live. The MRI will cost over $2000. Please help us provide this costly but necessary care for Derby by clicking the PayPal button below. Thank You!

Initial Bio 3/1/19 This two-year-old, 2 pound Yorkie boy  is Derby.   We have named him Derby to honor his Louisville, KY origins and also his fighting spirit and strong desire to win his race against time.   Right now, tiny Derby is in a world of hurt. We were contacted by the Louisville, KY shelter when an owner dropped Derby off at their shelter with no information other than he began staggering about 3 weeks ago.  They did not take him to the Vet and did not give the shelter much history beyond that.  He is exhibiting extreme and severe neurological symptoms.  Right now we have NO CLUE what is wrong with Derby.   He is the tiniest Yorkie we have taken in and he barely weighs two pounds.  He is SO TINY!  Derby is now picked up by two UYR members and he is en route to the Vet where we will begin immediate comprehensive testing to try to figure out what on earth is wrong with this tiny boy.   We will start with full labs, X-rays, and a special test to look to see if he has a liver shunt.  This testing is very expensive and is only a first step to try to figure out what is going on with Derby.  We are hoping at this point it is a liver shunt which can be corrected with a life saving (but very expensive) surgery.   Other possibilities are that he was dropped and sustained a head injury, has been poisoned or has a spinal cord injury.   This is going to be a tense day for Derby's rescuers who left their home in the week morning hours to go and get him so that he could be at the Vet's to begin testing as soon as possible.   The deck is stacked against Derby so he can sure use all the well wishes, prayers and most importantly donor dollars so that we can give Derby who is aptly named after a century  of thoroughbred champions his very own fighting chance at life.   We will update frequently as test results trickle in but in the meantime we need to get Derby's story out there and some donations flowing in so please click the PayPal button below to help Derby!

Finn - Puppy Mill Survivor
Tennessee
Finn (Bane)

Finn is a 5.2 pound, 7-year-old (estimated) Yorkie boy. Finn is being fostered in Murfreesboro, TN.

THANK YOU TO FINN'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Denise Shull

3/3/19: Meet handsome little Finn.  Finn was rescued along with 700 other dogs from a south Georgia puppy mill.  Up until just a few days ago, Finn spent all of his time languishing in a 2 x 2 metal cage.  Finn and the others were housed in a warehouse with crates stacked floor to ceiling, often multiple dogs to a crate.  Finn and the others were in really bad shape as you can see from his before and after photos.  Finn came to us a matted mess of a Yorkie with long razor-like nails.  His teeth are in really bad shape with severe tartar and several teeth are broken off at the gum so lots of extractions are likely in Finn’s near future.  Finn is also really skinny at only 5 pounds when he should probably be closer to 7.  We don’t know if he is thin from lack of access to food or because his teeth and mouth have to be painful but whatever the reason Finn is receiving all the care and love he needs to heal all of his wounds whether they be ones we see or the really deep kind that don’t show from the outside.   You can see from Finn’s before and after shots what an amazing outward transition he has undergone.   Finn is enjoying his new found freedom in his foster home and is beginning to learn how to be a dog outside of the puppy mill.   He barely knows what to do with himself outside the cage so he walks “laps” around his foster home, pacing as is very common to dogs with his history.  Finn is loving the warmth, attention, and love he is receiving and he is slowly learning to explore his new home and his new found freedom.   The dense mats that restricted his movement are long gone and the metal cage doors that once held him back have been flung open wide.  Finn is a sweet boy but still a bit fearful of being approached so he will cower and retreat to a corner when approached.  However when he is picked up he loves to be held and cuddled.   Finn still needs to be neutered, have dental work and gain a bit of weight before he can be adopted.   Please understand that Finn is not house-trained AT ALL and after spending years in a puppy mill he may be very difficult to teach this new behavior to.   Anyone who applies to adopt Finn needs to understand that he will need lots of patience and love to help him learn all the skills most dogs learn as young puppies.   Finn is very sweet and you can tell he “wants” to please and have a perfect home to call his own.   Finn won’t have his neuter or dental for a couple of weeks so we can get him “tuned up” a bit before his surgery so it will be at least a month before he can be adopted but his foster mom and dad are accepting applications for him.  Please stay tuned as we continue to watch Finn’s amazing transformation.   Finn and the other puppy mill dogs need lots of Veterinary care which is expensive but so necessary to get him to a healthy adoptable state.  Please consider a donation by clicking the PayPal button below and Thank You!


To date we've spent $774.94 on Finn (Bane)'s vet bills, but with your support we've collected $50.00 in donations.

Gabriella Faith

PENDING ADOPTION Gabriella Faith is 9 years old and an adorable tiny 3.10 pound little yorkie girl being fostered in Nashville, TN.

THANK YOU TO GABRIELLA FAITH'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Albert Guzzi

2/16/19: Meet Gabriella Faith ! A nine years old, this teenie tiny adorable girl weighs under 4 pounds. After an initial visit to the doctor for a full exam, to include senior bloodwork, the vet says she is absolutely healthy and after being spay is ready to find her forever home.

She is absolutely precious with the most sweet disposition and is somewhat shy. She loves to eat and sits on your lap with lots of kisses. Due to her size homes with small children is not recommended. A quiet home with a retiree or an individual who is home would be ideal for her. She would do fine with another small dog and is potty trained using pee pads.

Please email any addition question to foster mom at clarksvilleyorkie@gmail.com or complete an application to adopt on our website.

Granger (Albus)

Meet precious Granger. He is one of 20 dogs rescued by UYR over the weekend from a horrendous puppy mill in Southern Georgia. He is estimated to be 2 years old and weighs approximately 7 lbs. and is being fostered in the Nashville, TN area

3/3/19: Our little leprechaun Granger was rescued along with 700 other dogs from a South Georgia puppy mill. Granger feels like good luck has befallen him just in time for St. Patty’s Day. Up until a week or so ago, Granger was beginning to think his luck had all run out. A vast community of rescuers including United Yorkie Rescue came together to get him and the others to safety. Granger is one of lucky ones. At only two he is still young and has lots of good days ahead of him to hopefully replace the memories of the ones that came before. At his initial Vet visit, we found out Granger is malnourished, has bilateral ear infections, and needs a dental. He needs to gain a couple of pounds, so his healthy weight would be closer to 9 pounds. Granger is skittish when you reach for him, but once in your arms he loves to cuddle. He will have his neuter and dental soon but, in the meantime, he is loving life outside the puppy mill in his foster home playing with his fur siblings and soaking up the love! If you’d like to help be part of Granger’s recovery it is easy to do. You can donate by clicking the PayPal button below and Thank You!

Harley

Harley is a 4-year-Old, 11-pound Yorkie girl being fostered in Nashville, TN.

Bio 3/12/19

Everyone meet Harley! She is 4 years old and a little overweight at 11 pounds. She was surrendered to United Yorkie Rescue by a loving owner who had some life changes . Harley has been with her foster mom for two days and is starting to adjust to her new home. She has been a little upset and has had some tummy issues since she got here most likely due to the recent big changes for Harley. Harley is great with her new fur brothers and sisters and she is a wonderful walker! She will need an active adopter that will take her on walks to help her slim down a bit. When her foster mommy walks in the room saying her name she smiles at her! It is so precious! Harley is not house trained but her foster mom thinks she will be easy to train if someone is patient with her and takes her out frequently until she understands where she should go. She will mark her territory when she comes in a new house. Harley is very loving and sooo sweet! Stay tuned for more updates!


To date we've spent $182.80 on Harley's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Luna’s Transformation
Tennessee
Luna

Meet precious Luna. She is one of 20 dogs rescued by UYR over the weekend from a horrendous puppy mill in Southern Georgia. Luna is a 4-5 year-old, 7-pound Maltese girl. Luna is being fostered in Nashville, TN.

THANK YOU TO LUNA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Taylor Anderson, Debbie Rodriguez

3/3/19: Luna was rescued from a Georgia puppy mill along with 700 other dogs. They were housed in a warehouse with crates stacked floor to ceiling with often multiple dogs to a crate. She and the others were in really bad shape as you can see from her before and after photos. Who knows how long she suffered there and how many litters of puppies she was forced to have. We can barely stand to think of it! But that will NOT be the end of Luna's story. She is one special little girlie and that is for certain! Why? Because Luna shows absolutely NONE of the emotional scars typical to puppy mill mothers. She is one of the most joyful, playful and happy dogs you could ever hope to encounter. If you have not seen Luna's TV interview on Nashville TN channel WSMV or videos of her playing posted on our Facebook page, you MUST! It will cast sunlight into the darkest of corners and make your heart literally burst with happiness! Luna has wasted ZERO time getting down to some serious play in her foster home and she is bouncing around like the Energizer Bunny! She loves to explore her new house and is enjoying learning how to run and walk freely without being confined to a crate. She is no longer bound by the severe mats that pulled at her skin and limited her motion. Luna is not fearful or bitter. She is gentle and sweet in every way. Luna just had her wellness exam with pretty a good report. She has a pretty deep infection on her foot from all the mats and she has a luxating patella. Luna still needs to be spayed, have a dental and recover from her infections before she can be adopted but she is taking applications. Please know that Luna is not house-trained after years in the puppy mill and her adopter needs to appreciate this may be very difficult to accomplish so they need to have lots of patience. Watching Luna's transformation is an absolute joy to watch and her foster family is committed to transforming Luna into the dog she was always meant to be. We can’t wait to watch the girl blossom more! Luna and all the puppy mill dogs need lots of Veterinary care which is expensive but so necessary to get her to a healthy adoptable state.

Maggie
Tennessee
Maggie

Maggie is a 5-year-old (estimated), 11-pound Yorkie Mix girl being fostered in Murfreesboro, TN.

THANK YOU TO MAGGIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Mary Whitaker, Penelope Brackett

Update January 20, 2019: Maggie is doing well in her foster home. She is around 4 y/o old, weighed 12lbs at her last appointment and is eating well. Since arriving in Murfreesboro, she has been to the veterinarian and is being treated for a UTI (urinary tract infection) and the veterinarian believes that she might need to be on a special diet for a prolonged time. The veterinarian will assess again once she has completed her antibiotic treatment. She has been groomed and will be spayed and have her teeth brushed/cleaned in about three weeks from today 1/20/19. Maggie is very friendly, plays very well with her fur adopted/rescued brother and sister. She loves to give kisses and sleeps with her foster mom and dad at the foot of their bed and with her other fur brother/sister. Maggie is about 90% house trained and is doing better every day. Maggie likes turkey for treats and an occasional hot dog. She does take commands well and walks very well on a leash. She enjoys taking car rides and is very alert to who is coming in and out of the house. Please email if you have questions.

Sadly Maggie landed in the shelter after being picked up as a stray by animal control. When her stray hold was up, UYR was contacted to find this sweetheart a forever home. No worries now sweet Maggie because we have got you and it is all going to be GOOD from here on out! Maggie just arrived in her foster home so we are just getting to know her but so far she is a very sweet girl. She appears to be very social, has loved everyone she has met (both human and canine) and loves to play and give kisses. There have also been no potty accidents thus far and she has done all of her “business” outdoors so we are HOPEFUL she is mostly house-trained but time will tell for sure. Maggie is definitely at least half Yorkie but we aren’t quite sure (and can’t ever know) what her “other half” might be. She is a great size at 11 pounds and has a beautiful full tail. She has an adorable “tuft” of super soft, fluffy hair on top of her head that adds an extra measure of fun, character and charm to this already precious girl. Maggie needs to be spayed and microchipped before she is ready to be adopted but she is otherwise healthy, has a mouth full of sparkling white teeth, is up to date on routine Vet care and should be ready to pack her little Yorkie bags and be ready to head out to her forever home very soon. Stay tuned for updates as we get to know Maggie better!


To date we've spent $899.72 on Maggie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $100.00 in donations.

Maxy
Tennessee
Maxy

Maxy is an adorable 9 year old, 14 pound sweetheart being fostered in Nashville, TN.

THANK YOU TO MAXY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Brandy Caldwell

Updated Bio 1/19/19

Maxy was adopted from UYR over 3 years ago by a wonderful person who loved him lots and took good care of him. But sometimes things happen that you can’t anticipate that turn your life upside down and long story short.....Maxy is back with us again and it’s ALL OKAY because we will find him ANOTHER amazing human to be his last stop on the way to FUREVER HAPPINESS!

Maxy is a sweet senior gentleman who is 11 years young. We would LOVE to find his person quickly to minimize disruption in this sweet boy’s life and save him the trauma of bonding closely with his foster and having to move again so PLEASE help us and help Maxy by sharing his story to reach as many Yorkie lovers as PAWSIBLE.

Maxy is a bit set in his ways like most older dogs and he has some pretty specific needs. Maxy needs to find an adults-only home and he also needs to be an only fur-child. Maxy is very protective of his humans and is not a fan of sharing them. Those are the two big requirements for Maxy’s future adopter. But Maxy has lots of things that go in the plus column! He LOVES to play fetch the ball and is a big fan of dog toys. He also LOVES running around his fenced yard so a fenced yard would be a BONUS! Maxy will give you kisses and cuddle but his favorite position is laying close beside you. He loves getting belly rubs, looking out the windows and watching outdoor activities and going for car rides. Maxy is all ready with his doggy bags packed and ready to head HOME so if you are an adults only home with no other pets and think you are Maxy’s PAWFECT MATCH apply to adopt him today!

Initial Bio 12-9-18 Maxy was adopted from UYR in 2015 by someone who loved him very much but had unforeseen circumstances that made it impossible to keep him. With much sadness, they decided the best thing for Maxy was to return to UYR. Lucky for Maxy he was able to return to the very same foster family who loved him so much before so hopefully this will make things easier for him. Maxy is a bit on the chubby side so his foster peeps are going to help him get back into his SKINNY JEANS for the New Year! We aren’t sure Maxy is excited about this but he sure is happy to see his foster fur brothers again and engaging in lots of aerobic exercise playing and romping. So far Maxy is VERY PLAYFUL! He would love to play fetch 24/7 if you just keep throwing the ball! Maxy likes to be near you, but he isn't really a lap dog per se. Maxy also has some minor skin irritations that need care but he should be ready for adoption soon.

Maxy just arrived back in his foster home so stay tuned for updates!


To date we've spent $214.35 on Maxy's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $325.00 in donations.
Please donate!

Penelope (Bellatrix)

Meet precious Penelope . She is one of 20 dogs rescued by UYR over the weekend from a horrendous puppy mill in Southern Georgia. She is estimated to be 6 years old and weighs approximately 6 lbs. and is being fostered in the Nashville, TN area

THANK YOU TO PENELOPE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Michelle Pannoni

3/3/19: Penelope was rescued along with 700 other dogs from a South Georgia puppy mill. She came to us in rough shape as you can see from her before photos. At her initial Vet visit Penelope was found to be very underweight, having severe yeast infections on her skin and absolutely no hair whatsoever on her tail. Her teeth are in horrible shape, so bad in fact that she may end up losing all of them. She has been bred and bred and bred some more. Penelope needs to get into a bit better shape before she can have her spay and dental procedures. Her foster Mom is make SURE that happens and is lavishing this sweet girl with lots of love and attention. She is a very sweet girl and she LOVES to give kisses which is amazing given the neglect she has suffered at the hands of humans who failed her. Like the other puppy mill dogs UYR took in recently, she is a bit shy but is coming out of her shell as she learns to live life outside a cage. Penelope’s care will be expensive. We have already spent $350 on her Veterinary care and that is before she is even ready to be spayed and have her dental. Any donations help!

Addie
Texas
Addie TX

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

THANK YOU TO ADDIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Meet Bunny, a precious 8 year old Yorkie mix severely malnourished with mammary tumors, a heart murmur and in desperate need of a spay and dental. She is one of our Fortunate Four and is being fostered near Fort Worth, TX.

THANK YOU TO BUNNY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

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

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

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

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

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

Thank you UYR family!!!

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

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

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

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

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

Meet Cash, one of the Fortunate Four rescued from a breeder along with 3 Yorkie girls. Cash is malnourished and came to us with a heart murmur and in desperate need of a dental and neuter. Please help us help him!

THANK YOU TO CASH'S RESCUE ANGELS!

2/16/2019 update – Cash was the only male from the original fortunate four rescued from a puppy mill. This little guy came to his foster home with fleas and flea dirt in his coat, malnourished, and very skinny. He would was very fearful and the first time in the foster mom’s back yard he ran from her even with the enticement of great chicken treats. He was so lost and confused. After a lot of love and medical care Cash is not the same dog. He is loving, comes right away when his name is called and loves to be held. He has turned from the scared skittish dog to giving little growls when he is playing. He gets along well with the pack and is putting on weight. While he was in the puppy mill, he had part of his ear torn off and lost an eye. This most likely was because he was a small breeding male dominated by the females. This precious baby was neutered, and lost all but three teeth during his dental due to neglect. His blood work revealed some elevated liver enzymes but the vet started him on preventative medication which is relatively inexpensive. His liver values will be retested in three weeks. This precious baby needs someone to just love him, take care of him and show him what living with love really feels like. Due to his small size, he will not go to a home with small children. The other requirement is love. If your home fits these qualifications please click on the adopt button below and fill out an application.

Update 2/5/19: Meet precious Cash, the only boy among the four rescued from a puppy mill. Cash’s days as a breeding stud dog are now over. Honestly, it’s a miracle he survived because he is extremely emaciated at a mere 5 pounds when a healthy weight for him would be double that amount. Upon his emergency vetting visit, the vet opened his mouth and we all gasped as his teeth physically moved! His teeth are so bent forward that they are almost laying horizontally to the ground. The Vet says this likely occurred from Cash trying to escape the cage that was the only home he knew for so long. Like Bunny, his lower jaw is mostly missing and what is left is very unstable. Cash is also missing his left eye and no one wants to even think about how that might have happened or how bad he suffered. Cash is also missing half of his left ear and what is left has been split and torn down the middle. Again, we shudder to think of what may have happened. He has skin and ear infections due to neglect and heavy flea and tick infestation. You can see how matted his fur was and even looking at it is gut wrenching. Imagine the pain he must have felt with it pulling on his skin constantly. And just like the other 3 his nails are in terrible shape too.

Conan after surgery
Texas
Conan

Conan is a sweet 10 year old, 12 pound little boy who is vision and hearing impaired. He is being fostered in Fort Worth, TX.

THANK YOU TO CONAN'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Lynne Turner, Tawana Couch, Cindy Mitchell-Clark, Sandy Pagnotta, Wendy Fuhrnaneck, Rosemary Ward, Barbara Niro, Marta Balleste

3/16/19: This is the new and improved and very healthy Conan. This baby was blind and having so much pain from his eyes that the ophthalmic veterinarian strongly urged the foster mom to have his eyes removed. Wow what a difference! This little guy’s tail wags all the time, he likes to chew on bones and loves his bed and blanket. Muffins Halo donated a halo to him so he doesn’t hit is head when walking outside or around the house. Conan is also mostly deaf but what a sweetheart! He will need a home that is patient with him, knows that he needs to learn the home and the outdoors and just wants to cuddle with this guy. He does wear a belly band but when he goes outside, he knows what to do. If you think you have the perfect home for Conan, please fill out an on line application using the link below.

Update 1/26/19: What a sad story for such a sweet loving little boy! Can you love me and give me a home? Conan came into rescue through a plea for a rescue on social media. This angel was found wandering very slowly on the side of the freeway with his nose down struggling to find his way. Dog Rescue 911 was called and immediately transported this baby to the vet. Covered in a matted coat, his little eyes were so infected with green discharge and his matted fur had glued itself to his face covering his eyes. A bath was ordered and a quick groom to assess Conan's additional needs. It was found that Conan had two large tumors. One tumor was in the middle of his forehead and the other, quite large, surrounded the neck from the front to the back. Sadly, after shaving this hair, it became apparent that Conan was possibly totally blind. A plan was put into action, and immediately vetting was done to remove the tumors and do biopsies, neuter and give this baby a much-needed dental where 6 teeth were extracted. To look at Conan you could also notice that he had one eye larger than the other and there really was no definition to his eyes. To make sad matters worse, we also believe that Conan cannot hear. On Monday, we took Conan to the Eye Institute and learned that due to chronic inflammation, glaucoma and possible juvenile cataracts, his eyes are painful. We will enucleate both eyes after we get all things stable in his life. Currently, we are also in the process of setting up a hearing test for Conan. The good news is besides his loss of sight and possible hearing, Conan is HW negative and his bloodwork is just perfect for such a terribly neglected baby. Nothing has touched my heart more than for this baby to turn, while I am physically directing him, and come up close to me and paw my pant leg to be picked up and hugged! I look forward to coming home and picking this angel up and setting him in my lap and just giving him belly rubs until the snores finally come.

Conan is a gentle soul that will need a special home. If you have the love to give this angel, please contact his foster momma at yorkierescue60@gmail.com . Please also remember that because of your generous donations, we are able to help babies such as Conan. If you are able to donate, please go to www.uyr.us and click DONATE. Bless you!

Initial Bio 1/18/19: Conan just came into rescue and has been to see the regular vet and a specialist for his eyes. Please stay tuned as we learn more about this sweet boy.


To date we've spent $353.09 on Conan's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $305.00 in donations.

Cooper

Cooper

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

THANK YOU TO COOPER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Update 3-22-10: I came home Tuesday to find my living room and kitchen floor covered in urine. Through the process of elimination and careful watch I could finally tell that this was coming from sweet Cooper. Hubby had told me that he had drank a lot of water that morning, then turned and threw it all up, but he ate good after that and insulin shot was given as our normal routine. Now Cooper, who has literally been through hell and back with surgeries, ALWAYS asked to go outside. But today, Cooper could not get enough water and the urine was just pouring out as quickly as he drank. Yet this sweet angel, although deathly ill, still wanted to have his squeaky toy or play with the water hose while I was prepping the car for the vet. After a quick vet visit with Refinery Vet, Cooper was sent into emergency care immediately that night. This sweet angel had gone into diabetic crisis with a glucose level that wouldn’t even read on a glucometer or in a chem profile (which tops out at 1000). For those that follow our babies’ stories, Cooper has been one of our most unusual cases with multiple LARGE tumors removed, splenectomy, uncontrollable diabetes, lipemic blood that is as thick as glue, along with liver and kidney values off the charts. We had just made a trip to Texas A&M to address his diabetes, and we left hopeful that we were finally on the right track. Sadly, with Cooper, nothing is just usual. Cooper's emergency care and treatment is costing more than $3500. Please donate using the link below and please share this so that his story is heard. All dogs’ lives matter. Thank you and bless you!

Update 12-19-18: How can you not love this sweet baby! If there is any baby that is a happy fighter...here he is!

Cooper went for a re-check today for his diabetes, kidney and liver values. Sadly, his kidney values have increased once again as well as his glucose and liver. Dr Sam will consult with A&M and see what their recommendations are at this time. We are increasing his insulin from 8 units to 9 units twice a day in the interim. This sweet love has overcome some of the most extreme surgical tumor removals. Nothing makes this baby happier than to be able to play with a toy, attack the sprinkler and get sweet loving belly rubs. This baby who looked 12 months pregnant with 2 huge tumors sat in that shelter with a ball in his mouth waiting for someone to just love him. We didn't walk away from that when they asked for help! Please remember Cooper and United Yorkie Rescue during these holidays, and please make a donation at www.uyr.us. This little guy so deserves a Christmas miracle with answers!!

UPDATE BIO> 09/13/18. Prayers for United Yorkie Rescue COOPER please. We went in this morning for a final checkup and blood work. Ultrasound showed multiple masses on the spleen, so he is undergoing surgery before noon for a splenectomy. Biopsy and blood work will go to our local A&M lab as his blood is also thick with lipids and cannot be broken down in house.

Cooper has been through so much with previous 3lb and 1lb tumor removals, and multiple skin tumors previously removed as well. We need your donations if possible and your prayers for this this adorably sweet sweet little boy!! Please send on our home page to www.uyr.us. Thank you and bless you all

UPDATE BIO. 08/08/2018: Precious United Yorkie Rescue Cooper is still recouping from surgery on his foot to remove yet another growth. This poor angel has had a 3lb splenetic tumor, a 1lb tumor, along with multiple other body tumors removed previously. Shortly after his last major surgery his liver levels started declining and he became diabetic. We have levels on the rise now but we are still trying to regulate his diabetes, and he was just diagnosed with another spot on his spleen.

He is the sweetest little boy you will ever meet. Never asks for anything but a toy to play and hold. Look at this angel all snuggled up with his snowman. Please, please donate to his care. We have so many medical dogs at www.uyr.us and Cooper has incurred quite a bit of medical with more to go!! Thank you and bless!

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 ❤

Crystal

Crystal

Crystal is a very sweet and very ill little girl who was just rescued along with 3 other Yorkies from a breeder. She needed emergency surgery for pyometra. Please help us with her expenses!

THANK YOU TO CRYSTAL'S RESCUE ANGELS!

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

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

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

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

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


To date we've spent $7204.85 on Crystal's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $4190.55 in donations.

Gracie Lou
Texas
Gracie Lou

Gracie Lou is a sweet 8 year old, 5 pound little girl currently in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metropolitan area. She is up to date on her vaccinations and is a courtesy listing and need to be an only pup with a single owner.

3/14/19: Meet little 8yr, 5lb Gracie. This sweet little girl came to live with her current mother after she lost her elderly owner. After she came into the family, Gracie’s anxiety started to show. She eventually claimed her momma and started to growl and mouth the husband and daughter if they came too close. She has never actually bitten any person, she just puts on a good show of making it look and sound as though she will. However, she and her Yorkie sibling have had battles that finally ended up with Gracie needing medical attention. Her momma says she is just truly a good little girl. She is very affectionate and very loving but sharing and trust is just too hard on her. Gracie’s perfect home would be one where there are no other pets and children and preferably a single owner. Her groomers have all said they feel Gracie Lou was abused…that maybe the case as we have no way to know of her previous life except, she is a 5lb angel that just needs someone to love her and help her through. IF you are this person, please contact me at yorkiefostertx@gmail.com.

Jersey
Texas
Jersey

Meet Jersey, a sweet 9 year old, 8 pound little girl being fostered in Leander, TX.

THANK YOU TO JERSEY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Jonisha McKiddey

UPDATE BIO. 2/23/19. Hey everyone, Jersey here. I wanted to give you an update on my progress with foster mom and dad and my recent visits to the dogtor. I have decided that foster mom and dad are pretty fun. Foster dad brings me to work with him almost every day, so I am getting more comfortable in the car and love getting to spend the day with a lot of loving folks. I have been sharing my new home with a foster brother, Pepe the chihuahua, who seems to not mind my presence at all. We don't play, as I am still a little under the weather. I have definitely begun to show my personality more and have a little zip in my step now.

I sleep so well through the night and have shown foster mom and dad that I am 100% potty trained. I have been to the vet a few times to try to figure out what is causing my awkward gait, and am getting closer to a diagnosis and treatment plan. The focus has been on my liver function, because some tests have pointed in that direction. It was confirmed this week that there is definitely something going on and I am scheduled for another test March 11th. I am hopeful that this test will pinpoint my illness and I can begin the road to recovery. I am a super loving pup that just wants to share my life with a super loving family. More updates to come after my next round of testing.

Initial Bio 2/17/19: Howdy folks! My name is Jersey, but don’t let it fool you. I am not a northern girl, as I am proud to be a Texan. I am almost 9 years old and just under 8 pounds of lovable, sweet, Yorkie. I was recently surrendered to UYR by a savior that has tried to help me several times over my life. She wanted to provide a great home for me, but other puppies in the house occupied the only spaces her home would allow. So she did the next best thing and put me with new foster mom and dad. I have been here a week and am really settling in. I am a perfect southern young lady that is completely housetrained, a great snuggle buddy, loves other dogs, and sleeps through the night. I don’t bark at much and really love my two meals a day. I even like to observe things being cooked in the kitchen by foster mom and dad. I am not very fond of riding in the car or baths, but I will tolerate them.

I have been to the dogtor a few times last week to try to narrow down an issue I am having with my gait. I am fairly slow to get around, can appear a little dizzy at times, and really can’t navigate any steps to and from the house. I also suffer from dry eye syndrome, but have medication that I have been taking twice a day that keeps that in check. Dogtor has scheduled another test for me this week to get a better understanding of what is going on. Updates will follow.

I am looking for a forever home with a mom and dad that have a lot of time for me. I love to be on the couch with them, but need help getting up and down. Ideally my new parents will not have small children due to my size and lack of quick reflexes. I have a Texas size amount of love to give and want so badly to share that with my new parents.

Pearl
Texas
Pearl

Meet Pearl, one of the Fortunate Four pups recently rescued from a breeder/hoarder. She and her fellow rescues were in horrible condition and all as we are learning are in very poor health. She is estimated to be 8 years old and is being fostered in Fort Worth, TX.

THANK YOU TO PEARL'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Angie Cagle, Mary Whitaker, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Tara Pellegrino, Nan Havlik, Lynne Turner, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Behnaz Memarzadeh

UPDATE BIO: 02/28/19. This little cutie pie is PEARL and she is ready for her furever mommy and daddy! Pearl is a perfect little 9.5lb baby girl and is approximately 7yrs old. Although she had previously lived a life of neglect as a breeder, you would never be able to tell by her happy little tail which is constantly wagging.

She is a purebred beautiful little Yorkie girl that gets along with absolutely everyone. Pearl is also quite obsessed with the little princess she has become as she loves to adore herself in the mirror in the bedroom closet 😊. Pearl loves belly rubs and would love nothing more than to be in your lap enjoying them. She is also 100% potty trained. If you feel you have the home and the love to give this sweet baby girl, please contact foster mom at yorkierescue60@gmail.com.

Update 2/15/2019 – This precious little girl is one of the fortunate four who came from horrendous conditions in a puppy mill. This little girl is a fighter. She had surgery and had mammary tumors that are benign. She was also spayed and is free from ever producing litters of puppies again for a puppy mill. Unfortunately, this precious baby did lose all of her teeth but she doesn’t seem to care and has continued to eat like a champ! She graduated from soft food to a mixture of soft food and kibble. This baby’s tail is constantly wagging in spite of being in a living hell for years. She loves to cuddle and enjoys being in your lap. Pearl is nearly completely house-trained so her new forever home will need to continue to reinforce her pottying outside. This precious girl deserves a loving home without small children where she can be loved and be the center of your universe. She gets along well with other dogs and has so much love to give to her family. If you think you deserve this beautiful girl and are willing to love and be loved please use the link below and fill out an application to be considered.

2/6/19: Meet loving Pearl, the third of the Fortunate Four puppy mill dogs just taken in. Sweet Pearl’s little mouth will just drip drool from pain because of her horrible teeth and she has a severe loss of her lower jaw with no teeth visible as well. Sadly, her upper teeth are just as painful, and the decay is almost unbearable to look at. She has multiple mammary tumors on both chains on her chest, and as with the others, is evidence of recent and frequent nursing. She has another growth, separate from the mammary tumors that will need addressing on the left side thoracic region. She has severe skin infection due to flea and tick infestation. Pearl has been diagnosed with a pretty bad heart murmur; grade 4 of 6. Please consider a donation to help us pay for Veterinary care for Pearl and the Fortunate Four.

If you want to give this precious sweetie a home, please fill out an application.

3/9/19 This little lady is 14 years young. She is everything you think she would be; precious, lovable and potty trained! Her owners had to surrender her to move to assisted living and they were heartbroken. This little lady needs a home that can give her lots of love and pampering during her golden years. Small children would not be a good environment for her. She also needs to lose a few pounds so she will need a low-fat diet. She will be going to the vet very soon to have a dental, bloodwork and checkup. She did not qualify for Medicare, as most seniors, so UYR is footing the bill and could use your help.

Lily

Lily WV

Lily is a sweet 3 pound, 10 year old Yorkie girl being fostered in West Virginia. Please Help Save Lily's Life

THANK YOU TO LILY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Mary Whitaker, Sandy Pagnotta

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


To date we've spent $390.87 on Lily WV's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $100.00 in donations.

Merry

Merry

Meet Merry, our Christmas miracle. Merry is a 14-year-old, 5 lb. girl being fostered in WV.

THANK YOU TO MERRY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Teresa Beament, Jeffrey Merrell, Jane Montford, Angie Cagle, Sandy Rodabaugh, Carol Nelson, Lynne Turner, Karry Rogers, April Delaney, Kathie Stander, Bonnie Vaupel, Debra St. Clair, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Wendy Henry, Steven Annese

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

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

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


To date we've spent $465.29 on Merry's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $410.00 in donations.

Portia
West Virginia
Portia

Portia is a sweet 5 year old, 7 pound Yorkie being fostered in West Virginia.

THANK YOU TO PORTIA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Jean Jones, Deborah Rozanski, Melissa Hlewicki

1/31/19: Welcome Portia to the United Yorkie Rescue family. Your future will only get brighter for the rest of your life. This little girl's life looked bleak on that Saturday afternoon. Her owner was sentenced to a long prison term. When family and authorities entered the home, they found two dogs and several cats living in pure filth. After putting on rubber boots, authorities rescued the animals from ankle deep feces. A relative took the animals home and bathed them. They were then dropped off at the local shelter. Within minutes, United Yorkie Rescue got the emergency call for Portia. Within the hour, she was safely on her ride to her new foster home. Because of her skin condition and deplorable conditions in her previous home, all precautions had to be taken to protect the other dogs in the foster home. She could have no contact with her new fur family. On her way through her new house to her private comfy quarantine room, Portia topped to blow an air kiss to her new big brother who is ten times her size. When she entered the living room with all the pack, they were overjoyed to meet her. Unfortunately she had to immediately be sequestered into the private room with her own rug and bed. She just cried losing her new friends. Hopefully this will be a ten day quarantine and this little social butterfly will join her new foster family. Barely moving at the shelter, within an hour of her bath, Portia was jumping up determined to give multiple kisses to her new foster mom. The energy level and show of affection have proven that this sweet girl is an adorable despite her past. Portia will go to the vet on Monday and a plan for healing will be determined. When she is well, she can get her spay surgery and she will be ready for her final adventure to her new home. Foster mom hasn't decided what to do about her half shaved body. It's not known why she was shaved. It could have been due to the condition of the home. She seems to have hair that doesn't get knots. Portia feels like a luxurious plush toy. It would be a shame for a new family not to see and feel her beautiful hair.

1/20/19 Initial Bio: Portia was rescued from a New York shelter today. Please stay tuned for more information as we get to know her.


To date we've spent $730.50 on Portia's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $70.00 in donations.

Zee
West Virginia
Zee

Meet Zee. Zee is a 4 lb, 4-year-old boy being fostered in WV.

THANK YOU TO ZEE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Brenda Clark, Bruce Atkinson

1/31/19: Zee has been with his foster family for awhile now. He had an adoption fall through due to distance so he's still looking for his forever home. Zee has a few requirements. First, he is afraid of big dogs. After working with him, he is better but he challenges big dogs on walks. Zee needs a fenced yard with no big dog neighbors. Zee is also an alpha. He has gotten along with all foster siblings his size but he can be scrappy with other alphas. For this reason, only a local adopter (greater Washington DC area, he is in Martinsburg, WV) who can meet him with other pets can be considered. Zee is house-trained and pad trained. But when he is confused or upset, he can have accidents. For example, he was temporarily in a home that did not want him before we picked him up. His anxiety caused accidents. When a beloved fur brother passed away (Scout for those who follow our Yorkies), he had accidents. Foster mom was sad and Zee lost his buddy. Many Yorkies need housetraining reinforcement, but Zee's does seem situational. Anticipating a stressful situation and gating him off seems to be the best plan. Zee is so social and the most affectionate boy. He gets along with little dogs but a home where he is an only dog may be best. This is not a must but a meet and greet would be necessary with other dogs. Because he is social, someone who has more time at home is also best. Zee has become a beloved foster. His best friend was just adopted and he really deserves a forever home.

INITIAL BIO. 09/06/18.Zee came to United Yorkie Rescue last week, and he has already captured the hearts of everyone he meets. This little guy is only four years old, as sweet and affectionate as he could be, and is very well mannered. His owner told his foster that he didn't like other dogs but foster homes don't come without dogs. Luckily foster mom has had training from a great dog behaviorist. Zee met every fur sibling outside, one at a time, easiest ones first.

After a few words between the boys, within five minutes, he was part of the pack. That night he joined the pile of Yorkies on foster mom's lap. Zee rides well in the car and has perfect leash skills. He will need a home with no young children. He's a little afraid of foster mom's big dog but we will work on that. Watch for updates on this little guy.


To date we've spent $210.23 on Zee's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $200.00 in donations.
