Alabama
Scrappy

Scrappy is an 8-year-Old, 8-9 pound terrier mix being fostered near Huntsville, AL.

A very rural shelter in KY with very few resources reached out to us to help sweet Scrappy. The shelter was full and Scrappy had been there since August and his time was about to be up. He was an owner surrender and had severe fleas, practically no hair, intestinal parasites, infected ears and was not neutered. A volunteer foster from the shelter paid for most of the medical care Scrappy received since August themselves but could not get adequate exposure to get Scrappy adopted. So we put a transport together and now Scrappy is a Bama Boy! So far he is very sweet, happy, good with other pets and humans. Stay tuned for updates as we get to know him better!


To date we've spent $119.50 on Scrappy's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Brandy is a Special UYR Yorkie with Unique Needs.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Georgie

Georgie and Sport
California
Georgie (and Sport)

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

THANK YOU TO GEORGIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

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

UPDATE BIO. 09/11/18. Georgie has completely recovered from his knee surgery. He is a very sweet little man, and has really warmed up to foster Mom. His best friend is truly Sport. Georgie loves his Sport. He can be a little shy around strangers, and I have noticed he can act a little nervous when I go to pick him up.

Unfortunately, I do feel there was some abuse in these boys past. He gets along with other dogs, and is nicely crate trained. The ideal home for these two would be with females only, as his buddy Sport seems to be very afraid of men. These two enjoy their yard, so a small yard would be perfect for them. They are trained to use a doggie door. Because of Georgie’s small size, no children under 9.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Lily

Lily CA

Meet Lily. She is a 4-5-year-old yorkie mix who weighs about 20 lbs and is being fostered in CA.

INITIAL BIO. 10/03/18. I'm Lily. I'm a darling yorkie mix about 4-5 years old. I think I weigh about 20 lbs or more because foster mom has trouble lifting me. She's adjusted my diet and takes me for walks so that I will lose a few pounds.

I'm sweet, affectionate, not destructive and get along with other dogs. My family surrendered me because they had 2 babies and didn't have time for me anymore. So at this time I think a home with adults or older children would be best where I won't have to compete for affection.

I'm adjusting to being away from my family. Maybe it's because foster mom let's me sit on her lap and cuddle and takes me for walks. I know I will adjust to being in my furever home i with someone who will give me love and attention.

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

THANK YOU TO SPORT'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Trula Montgomery, Carol Nelson

UPDATE BIO. 09/11/18 Sport is a really sweet little man, and seeks affection from me. However, he is very afraid of my room mate. We have tried to get him to like my room mate, but it seems the problem is getting worse. Sport becomes very agitated when the room mate is around. I then put the boys in their crate, and that calms him. I believe there was abuse from a man in his past.

An ideal home for these two would be a female only household. They are trained to use a doggie door. They love their back yard, so a small yard would be ideal. No children under 9.

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

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

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

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

Hello. I am Dallas Rose a sweet puppy girl
Florida
Dallas Rose

Say hello to Dallas Rose. This sweet Yorkie puppy is 10 months old. She is 8.8 pounds of adorableness. Dallas Rose is being fostered in Clearwater, FL.

Initial bio 11/6/18. Dallas Rose was sadly surrendered by her owner. Her former mommy knew that she just couldn't take care of a puppy anymore. After Dallas Rose's daddy passed away less than a week ago, her mommy was heartbroken and realized she could not give Dallas the time and care and attention a puppy required.

Dallas Rose arrived at her foster home today and like most puppies she is already adjusting to her new home, to her foster mom and dad, and to her new foster brother. It will take her foster mom and dad a little time to get to know Dallas Rose and know what she needs in a forever home. What they do know is that Dallas Rose, like most puppies, is full of energy and she will need a family that leads an active life. Please keep in mind that Dallas Rose is very young and she needs a family that can give her at least a 15 year or more commitment--A forever home and family for her whole life.


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

I am so handsome after my grooming

I am a very sweet boy
Florida
Golly G.

Golly G. is 10.5 years old and weighs a little too chubby 11.5 pounds. He is being fostered in Leesburg, FL.

THANK YOU TO GOLLY G'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Lisa Donahue, Maryanne Ware

UPDATED BIO 11/05/2018: Golly G, or Gee as we call him, is making good progress in his foster home. He has now had all his vaccinations, his neuter and his dental. He did lose a bunch of teeth, but he still has quite a few left. He is on antibiotics, and eye and ear drops for infections. He doesn’t love taking the meds, but he doesn’t put up a fuss and takes whatever he is given like a champ.

Gee’s blood work showed that he may have an underactive thyroid. He will get another blood test to check his thyroid in 2 weeks. If his score is still low, he will be prescribed thyroid medication. This may be the reason he is a little overweight, too. We will know more in 2 weeks.

Gee was a little slow to adjust to life in his foster home. He spent a lot of time in his doggie bed, but now he is coming around and doing so much better. He is walking around more, going outside with everyone, and exploring the big backyard. Gee appears to also be doing his business outside. He was so good in the car, at the groomer and at the vet. He has become a good eater, and sleeps all night in his doggie bed. He is becoming fonder of his foster mom and dad and enjoying our company more and more. His foster mom and dad have yet to hear him bark. Gee is fine with other dogs, though he hasn’t yet interacted with any of the other dogs in his foster home. He is just such a good boy, so sweet, so adorable, and so good. It is hard not to love this little guy.

When Gee is ready for his forever home he would love one with someone home a lot of the time. He will need someone who is patient and understanding; someone who will be able to give him the time he needs to settle down in his new home. Gee won’t be a good companion for kids. Right now he is not a very active little guy. We are not sure he plays with toys or even plays. There is still so much more to know about Gee as his little personality comes out more each day.

Gee won’t be ready to go to his forever home until he has his next thyroid test. After we get those results we will know what lies ahead for him. If you think you might be the right home for sweet Gee and are willing to will wait until we know more, please submit an application for possible adoption of sweet Golly G, the best dog around.

UPDATED BIO 10/29/2018: Hi, Golly G. here. I have been in my Foster Mom’s home a few days now and boy-oh-boy have I been busy. Since I moved in, I’ve had a nice bath and lots of cuddles. My Foster Mom says that I am going to the groomer later this week. That should be fun. She also said that I am going to see the doctor. Now, that does not sound like fun. My Foster Mom thinks that I am a very handsome boy. If you are looking for a fun-loving guy like me, submit your application. Stay tuned for more updates on me.

INITIAL BIO 10/27/2018: Golly G. just arrived into UYR today and will be getting acquainted with his fur-friends in his foster home. He came from a home with 3 other dogs so he should adjust quickly. Golly G. was surrendered by his owner who was no longer able to care for him. Please stay tuned to learn more about this sweet boy.

I am looking for a furever home

Isabella

Isabella is 13 years old and weighs 4.5 pounds. She is a little tripod and is being fostered in Tallahassee, FL.

THANK YOU TO ISABELLA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Lisa Donahue, Maryanne Ware, Evelyn Rollins

UPDATED BIO 11/14/2018: Isabella was surrendered by her owner who could no longer care for her. She is a very sweet little girl who loves her family so much that she wants to be able to see them – and be with them - all the time. Isabella loves to play fetch with tiny toys and will bring them back to you so that you can toss them again – sweet! She is curious about her new surroundings and is completely house-trained. She will use a pee-pee-pad and also goes outside to do her business. Isabella is very alert and her most favorite thing to do is to be close to her chosen person. Isabella will definitely need a home where someone is home most of the time; she gets very sad when left alone. She is missing her two brothers – and her son - who came into rescue with her and whines for them at times. She would do well as either an only dog in her adoptive home, or perhaps with another dog close to her age and size.

Isabella and her companions were in poor condition when they arrived in UYR, but she is doing great now. She has had a dental and has 5 teeth left, but this girlie really has a super great appetite and has no trouble whatsoever eating. She did have crystals in her urine, but a follow-up urinalysis shows no crystals – yeah! Her bilateral ear infections have cleared and she is a happy and lively little girl.

Isabella has a congenital limb deformity in her left forearm, leaving her with only a small appendage. Her right elbow is showing signs of arthritis which makes it difficult for her to walk a long way, but she is still mobile. At times, she will stop and rest for a short time on her chest before continuing with walking. She also has bilateral Grade II/IV luxating patellas and gets around by hopping like a little bunny rabbit. She has been this way her entire life and has certainly adapted well to her disability. She can maneuver small steps with no problem whatsoever, and manages to get up on the back of the sofa so that she has a better view – sweet! Isabella has a bit of age-related hearing loss, but if spoken to directly and with a little louder-than-normal tone, she understands exactly what you are saying. To view how Isabella does on her walks, please copy/paste this YouTube video into your browser: https://youtu.be/IHl0KBR5rYA

Please don’t look past our senior and special needs dogs like Isabella. She will make a wonderful companion to someone that is home most of the time, perhaps a retired person/couple and who wants a constant cuddle-buddy. She is definitely a Velcro dog and wants to be with her person all the time. Just like older people, older dogs need love, too.

UPDATED BIO 11/05/2018: Isabella arrived in UYR almost 10 days ago and she has gone through quite a bit of adjustments during this time. She has been updated on her vaccinations, had a thorough vet exam and also had a dental – she was left with 5 teeth. Isabella’s urinalysis showed that she has crystals in her urine and she was prescribed an antibiotic – she will return for an updated urinalysis soon to ensure all is clear.

She is a very sweet little girl who loves her family so much that she wants to be able to see them – and be with them - all the time. She is curious about her new surroundings and so far is doing very good in the house-training department. She will use a pee-pee-pad and also goes outside to do her business.

PLEASE NOTE! Due to Isabella's small size and her disability, she canNOT be adopted into a home with children. Adults only please.

UPDATED BIO 10/29/2018: Hi, Isabella here. I have been in my Foster Mom’s home a few days now and boy-oh-boy have I been busy. I was born with a deformed left leg and that makes me very special – I’m a tripod - but I get around just fine. Since arriving at my Foster Mom’s home, I have enjoyed a bath, a ride in the golf cart and a trip to the dog park – what fun. After I had my first bath in a long time, I was able to sleep in bed with her. Check out my groomed pix – I feel beautiful. I am looking forward to keeping you up-dated on how I am doing and finding my furever home.

My foster mom tells me I am beautiful

I am a tripod, but I am still beautiful and deserve a forever home
Florida
Princess

Princess is 8 years old and weighs only 7.7 pounds. She is an adorable tripod. Princess is being fostered in Palm Coast, FL.

THANK YOU TO PRINCESS' RESCUE ANGELS!

Bryan Pasmore, Christine Flaherty, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Sharon and Allen Springman, Teresa Beament, Debbi Driscoll, Leidy Kessler, Maryanne Ware, Zona Platzek

UPDATED BIO 10/29/2018: Hey everybody, Princess here. My last update told everybody about the unusual behavior I was having that may have been seizures. We now have answers about what has been happening. The vet thinks that I have a seizure disorder, so he started me on the necessary meds to get them under control. This means that I will not be available for adoption for a little while longer, maybe another month - until we can check my blood and regulate the dosage.

Me and my Foster Mom are praying that the meds fix my seizure disorder. Fingers and paws crossed and please keep me in your prayers. Thank goodness for this wonderful rescue and all your generous donations so we are able to get me the medicine that I will need. Read more about me in last week’s bio – I’m a super wonderful and classy lady looking for a forever home. I'll be hanging out here in Palm Coast with my foster family, so please keep checking back for more updates on me.

UPDATED BIO 10/22/2018: Hey everybody, Princess here. I just wanted to send a little update for how I'm doing nowadays, so here goes. I was very close to being adopted … but I had a little setback. Foster Mom noted that I have some unusual behavior every couple of weeks, and she and the vet think I may be experiencing seizures. I've only had a couple in the last month or so, but she wants to observe me for a few more weeks to make sure what is going on before I get re-evaluated for medication if necessary.

Thank goodness my Foster Mom can stay home with me all the time so she knows first-hand if anything is suspected and if another seizure happens. She said that my perfect home would be with someone who is home most of the time, or perhaps a nice retired couple. I just love sitting with my people – a lot. I have no problem running around on my 3 legs, and would enjoy short walks so that I can do my business. I just love riding in the car and enjoy napping with the other doggies in the home. I’m smart, too. I am completely house-trained and go outside to potty.

I just love everyone I meet, two-legged or four-legged. I’ve got everything you are looking for in a loving lifelong companion. I'll be hanging out here in Palm Coast, Florida waiting on you. I will be your furever loyal and loving companion. Promise.

UPDATED BIO 08/29/201: Hi everyone, Princess here with a Super-Great-Brand-New- And-Amazing-Update!!!! After going to many different doggie docs and specialists and having my leg x-rayed and poked at, and getting a needle-biopsy, and finally having the lump removed and tested and re-tested, my foster mom still wasn't convinced that my cancer was inoperable and I would just have to continue on with this bummer leg with a huge lump on it. Nope ….. foster mom said "No way!!!”

So on August 14th we returned to the vet to check one more time, and this time the doggie doc said she thought she could get out all the cancer if she amputated my bum leg. Yikes!!! That sounded very scary, but I had to trust the doctor and foster mom to do what was best for me. The very next day surgery was done and the leg and the cancer is now GONE. GONE. GONE. Yeah for me!!!!!

I'm back at foster mom & dad's house with my fur-brothers and sister and feeling WONDERFUL -- PAIN FREE & CANCER FREE!!! I just had all my stitches out and I'm healing nicely foster mom says, and I'm running around again on all 3 legs and having a ball with no more pain!!!! YIPPEE!!!

So now for the MOST AMAZING NEWS EVER!!! I'm moving from the Forever Ours page which most dogs never leave and moving down the road to the Looking for Love Page! Now, what does this mean? It means that YOU CAN ADOPT ME! I love it here with my foster parents and I’ve been here since 11/25/2017, but it’s time for me to move to a brand new Fur-ever home so foster mom and dad can help another little boy or girl that needs help.

Sooooooo, if you are interested in adopting me, just click on the Adoption Application link below and maybe I can become part of your family soon. I love to ride in the car, play & nap of course and I am completely house-trained like a big girl – aren’t I smart? One more important thing; I just love everyone I meet, two-legged or four-legged. I’ve got everything you are looking for in a loving lifelong companion. I'll be hanging out here in Palm Coast, Florida waiting on you.

Oh, one last thing – well maybe two. United Yorkie Rescue has paid all of my vetting expenses, and they are high. If you would like to help with these expenses, please consider making a donation to UYR by clicking on the PayPal button below. Your donation means that UYR will be able to continue to care for other little doggies just like me. I would really appreciate it. And ……. for all my friends who are still on the Forever Ours Page, can you go there and take a look at them and maybe send some donations their way as well? They aren’t as lucky as I am to be leaving the Forever Ours page, but they are happy and loved and UYR will take care of them for the rest of their lives.

Rocky is a cutie
Florida
Rocky

MEET ROCKY! He is 10 years old and weighs a very obese 19 bs. Rocky is being fostered in Dunedin, FL.

THANK YOU TO ROCKY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

David and Linda Rothrock, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Karry Rogers, Maryanne Ware

UPDATED BIO 10/22/2018: Sweet Rocky is our Team’s newest bachelor in Florida! It took a huge team effort to rescue Rocky from a South Florida shelter and transported to his foster home, but this little boy really needed help - and needed it urgently.

Rocky was immediately taken to the vet where he was diagnosed with a severe case of collapsed trachea. This condition causes him to cough and pant a lot. He presented with very labored breathing and was panting non-stop, which caused him to be anxious and distressed. He is now on the appropriate mix of medications and is already doing so much better.

Rocky is also very overweight, weighing in at a whopping 19 lbs., but his dogtor has put him on a prescription weight management food. Once he is stabilized, he will also be able to go for short walks to help him lose his weight. Rocky’s ideal weight should be a healthier 13 to 14 lbs. and shedding this excess weight will also benefit his collapsed trachea.

Rocky is a very sweet little boy who gets along well with both dogs and cats, but prefers to be with his foster mom. It’s still too early to know much about his personality because of his continuous breathing difficulty and extreme thirst (one of his meds makes him very thirsty), so stay tuned for more information and to keep up with his Rocky’s progress.

United Yorkie Rescue has stepped up to the plate to rescue a very sick dog in need once again because no other rescue group was able to help. Rocky’s medical expenses are expected to 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, scroll down until you find his page, 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 Rocky.

INITIAL BIO 10/15/2018: Rocky just arrived in his foster home from a South Florida shelter. He does have some significant health issues and will be seeing the vet immediately. Rocky is a very sweet little boy who was a shelter favorite and UYR quickly went to work to arrange a transport to get him into a foster home where he will receive the medical attention - and love - that he so richly deserves. Please stay tuned for more information on this sweet fella.


To date we've spent $795.64 on Rocky's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $120.00 in donations.

I am a very cute little fella

This is my Glamour Shot
Florida
Romeo

Romeo is an adorable male yorkie who is 7 years old and weighs a very skinny 4 lbs. Little Romeo is being fostered in Odessa, FL.

THANK YOU TO ROMEO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Michelle Dancer, Nestor Sanchez, Jean Kirwan, Mary Jane Sanders, Karry Rogers, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Sandra Wendt, Angela McNally, Marie Elaine Sedlak and Louis Holscher, Maryanne Ware, Donors at Florida Pet Fair, Veronica Corzo

UPDATED BIO 11/02/2018: Romeo was surrendered by his previous owner because he was unable to continue to care for him and wanted a better life for him. Romeo is under-weight at 4 lbs and should gain at least 1 to 1-1/2 lbs to be a healthier weight. Romeo is a very sweet little boy who loves to sit on your lap and he will readily flop over for belly rubs! He also loves treats and will even sit for them when offered – sweet!

Some recent testing revealed several abnormal blood values that may indicate liver and/or bladder involvement, so an abdominal ultrasound was performed today. It revealed that Romeo’s liver looks okay, but if the blood values do not improve, a liver biopsy may be in order. The ultrasound also noted a thickened focal region along his dorsal urinary bladder wall. This may possibly be related to Romeo’s history of infection (UTI), but the potential of bladder cancer cannot be ruled out. A second urinalysis was submitted and will reveal if his UTI has cleared up.

The specialist is also concerned about Romeo’s inability to raise his head and the curvature in his neck– they suspect this may be caused by a herniated disc and if so, this is very painful. Further evaluation will need to be done to what the next steps are for this sweet boy.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to his tiny size, Romeo must be adopted into an adult-only home.

IF YOU LOVE UYR’S FOSTER DOGS, PLEASE CONTINUE READING: United Yorkie Rescue cannot continue to save beautiful furbabies like Romeo without your help. To date, Romeo’s medical expenses are over $1,400 and we’ve only raised $310 in donations. There are so many other little needy dogs like Romeo out there that need to be rescued, which is where you come in. Won’t you please consider donating to Romeo’s medical care so that we can help the next furbaby that needs us?

If you find it in your heart to do so, click on the PayPal Donate link underneath Romeo’s bio to help us not only with his on-going medical care, but also to help us rescue other little needy yorkies. Any amount is appreciated and every penny donated goes directly to medical expenses for our foster dogs. UYR has no paid staff and our volunteers/foster parents are paid in puppy kisses, tail wags and Happy Tails stories – this selfless sacrifice is so worth these precious blessings.

UPDATED BIO 09/23/2018: Romeo was surrendered by his previous owner due to the owner’s medical issues; he was unable to continue to care for Romeo and wanted a better life for him. Romeo is under-weight at 4 lbs and should gain at least 1 to 1-1/2 lbs to be a healthier weight. His foster mom has started him on a higher-calorie puppy food so that he can gain this much-needed weight.

Romeo recently had his follow-up vet visit and radiographs after being on anti-inflammatories for 3 weeks due to prior issues with his left shoulder joint and neck. The vet did not see any change from the previous radiographs, so there is no indication of a mass – yeah! She did see arthritis and inflammation in his shoulder and wrist, which is the reason Romeo walks with an awkward gait and has difficulty raising his head. It appears that he may have had prior trauma/injury to that area and never received any treatment for it. Romeo will be taking supplements and joint support medications (Glucosamine) for the rest of his life to give him relief from the discomfort. He will always walk with an awkward gait, but it is hoped that the supplements will relieve any pain he may be experiencing.

Once Romeo gains some much-needed weight, he will be getting a dental and will then be ready for adoption. Foster mom says that she believes Romeo would be much happier as the only animal in his forever home as he isn’t overly fond of his foster fur-family. Romeo is a very sweet little boy who loves to sit on your lap and he will readily flop over for belly rubs! He also loves treats and will even sit for them when offered – sweet!

Romeo presented with some medical issues that needed immediate medical attention. He has been seen by the vet and had several radiographs taken, along with a thorough examination and extensive bloodwork. At this time, the vet is concerned about his left shoulder joint and his neck. Romeo walks with an awkward gait and it is difficult for him to raise his head. His foster mom was given a sheet of exercises to do daily with him, and he will also be on anti-inflammatories for 3 weeks. He will then will return to the vet for a follow-up radiograph to see if there is any change in the shoulder and neck area.

Foster mom says that she believes Romeo would be much happier as the only dog in his forever home as he isn’t overly fond of his foster fur-family. She isn’t sure about kitty cats, although she did show him the cats in the pet store and he didn’t react, but it may be different if they were in his home.

INITIAL BIO 08/30/2018: Romeo just arrived at his foster home. He was surrendered by his previous owner due to the owner's medical problems and not having the time to care for Romeo. He is a timid boy right now and his foster parents will be working with him on making him comfortable and happy. Romeo is a sweet boy and follows his foster mom around. Foster mom doesn't think he is completely house-trained, but she will be working with him on that as well. Romeo has an awkward gait when he walks, but he is being seen by the vet very soon and we will figure out what's wrong and we will get him all fixed up.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to his tiny size, Romeo must be adopted into an adult-only home.

I am looking for love - this is my weekend look

This is my Going Out Look
Florida
Star

Star is only 3-1/2 year old and weighs approximately 9.7 lbs. Star has recently been diagnosed with diabetes. Otherwise, she is a perfect Little Florida Princess. Sweet Star is being fostered in Jacksonville, FL.

THANK YOU TO STAR'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Maryanne Ware

UPDATED BIO 11/08/2018: Star’s family who had her since she was a puppy felt she needed a special family that could better provide for the diabetes she was recently diagnosed with. Her former owners worked long hours and wanted to be sure she received the time commitment and care she needed.

Star had her second glucose curve done and will return in a month for another test. She remains on 3 units of insulin 2x daily and ½ cup of dry diabetic kibble. She will need daily insulin shots and an RX diet for the rest of her life. Star gets a minimal amount of treats for training. It is evident that Star is strong willed and resists being held or restrained for her insulin shots. She is now being trained to let her person be in charge with positive reinforcement. She is very smart and learns quickly, and her foster mom is taking it slow with her so that she learns to trust her and realizes that she is only helping her feel better.

Star must go into a home in Florida with adopters who have experience with a special needs dog and capable of administrating her insulin injections. It would also help if they knew how to manage a strong-willed dog like Star. She will make a wonderful addition to a family that understands her medical and behavior concerns.

Star likes to go for walks and play with toys. She is house-trained and will also use puppy pads. She sleeps in her crate and sometimes is allowed in the bed with her Foster Mom. If you think you have the perfect home for Star and would love her forever, please click on the link to send an adoption application to her Foster Mom. Whoever is chosen to adopt Star will be very lucky since she such a sweet little girl who will reward you with lots of kisses and snuggles.

PLEASE NOTE: Star cannot be placed in a home with children under the age of 12 years old. No exceptions will be made. Star can live a normal long life with diabetes and she is looking for a home that is committed to her 2x daily injection of insulin and special diet, and who will love her for the next 15 years.

UPDATED BIO 10/30/2018: Hello everyone, Star here. It has been a hectic and kinda stressful few days. My family that I had since I was a puppy felt I needed a family that could better provide for the diabetes I was recently diagnosed with. They worked long hours and wanted to be sure I received the time commitment and care I needed. I also think my former mom didn't like giving me my shots. We spent most of Saturday riding in the car to meet my new UYR Foster Mom.

We finally arrived at my new Foster Mom’s home and it was kinda strange initially but gradually I figured things out. I saw a different vet yesterday and I had to stay with them while they did a test called a glucose curve. It's supposed to help me get my insulin regulated. I will need the insulin for the rest of my life. Foster Mom was told that I will need to have this test every 2 weeks until my insulin dosage is just right.

When I got home, my Foster Mom gave me lots of love, just like she does for the dog and cat I now live with. Foster Mom was very happy that I lost some weight, but she did remind me that it will be good if I lose a little bit more. I eat a special kibble made for dogs like me that have diabetes. I will need regular vet visits in the future to be sure my diabetes and insulin levels stay under control. I look forward to a long happy life with a special family.

I'm slowly adjusting to my new environment and will soon be ready to find my furever home and family. I like to go for walks and play with my toys. I'm house-trained and will also use puppy pads. I sleep in my crate and at times get to be in bed with my Foster Mom. If you think you have the perfect home for me and would love me forever, please click on the link to send an adoption application to my Foster Mom. She said that whoever is chosen to adopt me will be very lucky since I am such a sweet little girl.

PLEASE NOTE: Star can live a normal long life with diabetes and she is looking for a home that is committed to her 2x daily injection of insulin and special diet, and who will love her for the next 15 years.

INITIAL BIO 10/27/2018: Star just arrived at her foster home today. She was reluctantly surrendered by her loving owners because they were unable to provide her with the care she needed for her recently-diagnosed diabetes. She is otherwise very healthy and is currently being regulated on insulin which should take a few more weeks. Star is on a special diet which she will need to be on for the rest of her life. Her RX diet costs no more than a premium quality dog food.

Star is a beautiful little girl who is calm and quiet and loves to snuggle, and will gladly lay next to you on the couch and in your bed if you allow it. Although Star was the only dog in her previous home, she has visited and over-nighted with neighbors and friends who have cats and dogs and gets along fine with them. Star has enjoyed being around well-behaved children who are older than 6 years old and teenagers.

Star can live a normal long life with diabetes and she is looking for a home that is committed to her 2x daily injection of insulin and special diet, and who will love her for the next 15 years.


To date we've spent $215.41 on Star's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $25.00 in donations.

I am a handsome fella.

I lost my toothy smile but I feel so much better
Florida
Stitch

Stitch is 7 years old and currently weighs a slender 8 lbs. Stitch is being fostered in Orlando, FL. Stitch is being fostered in Orlando, FL.

THANK YOU TO STITCH'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Nestor Sanchez, Maryanne Ware

UPDATED BIO 10/24/18: Stitch is an adorable little boy who was rescued by a good Samaritan who knew he needed help. Stitch arrived in UYR underweight, but is now 8 pounds and the vet thinks a good weight for him is between 8-1/2 to 9 pounds.

Stitch has had his neuter and dental and is recuperating nicely in his foster home. Stitch's mouth was in such bad shape that the vet had to pull all but 6 of his teeth. Stitch is not letting that slow him down one bit. He loves to eat and will soon be at his healthy weight of 8-1/2 to 9 pounds.

Stitch arrived in his foster home with itchy paws and dry, scaly skin. His skin issues are probably due to being malnourished for so long, and perhaps a not-so-healthy diet. His itchy paws are probably from walking in the grass/weeds. The vet has given him medication to help with this. She thinks Stitch's skin problems could be related to food allergies. She recommended changing his diet to home-cooked chicken and rice and add coconut oil and Probiotic Powder to the mixture. She also prescribed a special shampoo to help with his itchies. Needless to say, Stitch loves his new diet – this little boy is so happy to be eating well – maybe for the first time in his life.

Stitch is a pure sweetheart. He knows his name and is a smart little boy. When asked if he needs to go potty, he starts heading to the back door. He hasn't quite yet grasped the concept that he should not lift his leg in the house, but his Foster Mom is continuing to work with him on teaching him proper potty manners. Now that Stitch is neutered, his training should be easier.

Stitch loves chasing lizards, walks and car rides. While on a walk, he will easily approach other dogs and gets along with other household pets, including cats. Stitch adores having his belly rubbed and this is a big requirement for his forever home - his new family must readily accommodate him when he asks for belly rubs.

Stitch's ideal forever family will have a mom or dad who is retired or works from home. He would be happy to have a fur-brother or sister of similar size and disposition. Stitch can be placed in a home with children older than 10 years old.

UPDATED BIO 10/16/2018: Stitch is an adorable little boy who was rescued by a good Samaritan who knew that he needed help. Stitch has gained 1 pound since his last vet visit, and should weigh about 10 pounds to be a much healthier weight.

Little Stitch had a vet re-check today and boy-oh-boy have things improved for him! Due to his highly-nutritious diet that he gobbles up, his protein levels have risen to a normal level and he is no longer anemic. Wow! He is now healthy enough to have a dental and be neutered and that is scheduled for 10/22.

Foster Mom says that Stitch is a pure sweetheart. He knows his name and is a smart little boy – when Foster Mom asks him “do you need to go potty?”, he knows exactly what that means now. She is working with him on not marking in the house, and being neutered will make a big difference. Stitch feels better each day and now one of his favorite activities is chasing lizards. On his walks, he will easily approach other dogs and he gets along with the other household pets in his foster home. Cats included. Stitch adores having his belly rubbed and that is a big requirement for his forever home – his new family must readily accommodate him when he asks for belly rubs.

Stitch will bark and greet Foster Mom at the door when she returns home from errands. He is timid and it takes him a while to warm up to new people, but as he continues to feel better, we feel this will soon change as well. Especially if the new people rub his belly, lol!

UPDATED BIO 10/05/2018: Stitch is an adorable little boy who was rescued by a good samaritan who knew that he needed help. Stitch came into rescue very underweight and should weigh about 10 pounds to be a much healthier weight.

He has been seen by the vet and is being treated for both anemia and worms. He was being eaten alive by fleas when he arrived, which caused him to be anemic. He is taking a daily supplement to help with his anemia, and once he gains some weight, Stitch will have a neuter and a dental. Stitch feels better each day and loves his new highly-nutritious food, so hopefully he will gain weight and feel much better. He is a smart little boy who will let his foster mom know by barking when he needs to go out. She is working with him on not marking in the house, and being neutered will make a big difference.

Stitch loves to have his belly rubbed and foster mom’s neighbor loves to accommodate him. See this short video which shows how Stitch is training her to rub his belly when she stops. Precious! https://youtu.be/3b2bMZt3TZM

INITIAL BIO 10/01/2018: Stitch is an adorable little boy who was rescued by a good samaritan who knew that he needed help. Stitch is severely underweight and should weigh about 10 pounds to be a much healthier weight.

Stitch has been seen by the vet and had internal parasites which may be what caused him to be so severely malnourished. Poor little fella needs a dental badly and could potentially lose all of his teeth due to severe neglect. His coat is very thin and dull and this could also be caused by malnutrition.

Stitch will be getting his neuter and dental after he has gained some weight. He is a sweet little boy who was apparently neglected and ignored for a very long time; he is adapting to a loving foster home where he has plenty of good nutritious food and loving arms to hold him. He has already become attached to his foster mom which is a good thing. Stay tuned for updates on this sweet boy.


To date we've spent $750.47 on Stitch's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $125.00 in donations.

Illinois
Bruno

Meet Bruno! Burin is a handsome 7-year-old, 5 lb. male being fostered in IL.

INITIAL BIO. 10/26/18. Sweet Bruno was surrendered by his human due to the human's work schedule, which did not allow Bruno enough attention. In addition, Bruno was kept in a crate over 12 hours a day/night. Bruno is now up to date on all vaccinations and is scheduled for a significant dental procedure at the end of November. Bruno will likely have just a couple of teeth left after that dental, and may experience dental health issues in the future.

Bruno needs to get used to being in a loving home where he is afforded the love and care from his foster Mom for just a bit longer before adoption applications will be accepted. Please watch for updates on Bruno in the future.


To date we've spent $0 on Bruno's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 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. 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 $3292.84 on Maggie May's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $2200.92 in donations.

Sophie
Iowa
Sophie-Iowa

Sophie is an adorable 11-year-old, 6 pound, Yorkie Bischon mix currently being fostered in Des Moines, IA. She currently has a pending adoption.

THANK YOU TO SOPHIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Christine Flesner

UPDATE BIO. 9/28/18. Sophie had a much needed dental cleaning today. Great news, the vet has given Sophie a clean bill of health!

INIITIAL BIO. 08/31/18: Sophie was tearfully surrendered by her previous owners due to not being home enough. She was having to spend too many hours being crated or boarded at the vet, waiting for her owners to come home.

Sophie is an active, 11-yr-old girl. She requires a home with a fenced-in yard and an active owner who is willing to take time to play fetch with her and take her for short walks. She also likes cuddle time on the couch.

Sophie would be happiest in a home without young children and a stay at home or work from home owner. Sophie's Foster Dad says she makes a fabulous office dog!

Sophie would do well as an only dog, but gets along fine with other small dogs.

While Sophie does well going potty outside, her new family must be willing to continue working with her to master potty training. This will take time and patience, with praise and reward with lots of treats. Sophie loves treats!

Max

Max

Meet Max. Max is a 6-year-old, 16 pound Yorkie boy residing in MA. He is part of a bonded pair and must be adopted with his brother, Tigger.

UPDATE BIO. 8/27/18- My brother Max and I are still here in MA. We've had a hot summer, but FM take us for a quick dip in the pool to cool us down. We don't mind it so much cause she hangs onto us real tight. The hummingbirds have been busy and I (Max) would love to get a little closer to them, they make such chatter, I have chased them, I just want to play.

Tigger and I play like brothers do, playing tug of war with our toy Tigger, we chase each other around the yard and love to meet new people. Riding in the car is the best, When FM gets our harnesses and leash, we just go silly, Max just dances in circles while I bark at mom to hurry up and get that harness on us.

Every night before bed we get our chicken treat and if mom forgets or it's getting past 9pm., we let her know, it works every time. BOL. We are here waiting for our perfect family to make us part of their family, we come together, twice the love to give.

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

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

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

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

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

Tigger

Meet Tigger. Tigger is a 8-year old, 6 pound Yorkie boy residing in MA. He is part of a bonded pair and must be adopted with his brother, Max.

THANK YOU TO TIGGER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Trula Montgomery, Christine Dwyer

UPDATE BIO: 8/27/18- My brother Max and I are still here in MA. We've had a hot summer, but FM take us for a quick dip in the pool to cool us down. We don't mind it so much cause she hangs onto us real tight. The hummingbirds have been busy, and I (Max) would love to get a little closer to them, they make such chatter, I have chased them,

I just want to play. Tigger and I play like brothers do. We play tug of war with our toy Tigger, chase each other around the yard and love to meet new people. Riding in the car is the best, when FM gets our harnesses and leash we just go silly, Max just dances in circles while I bark at mom to hurry up and get that harness on us.

Every night before bed we get our chicken treat and if mom forgets or it's getting past 9pm., we let her know, it works every time. LOL. We are here waiting for our perfect family to make us part of their family, we come together, twice the love to give.

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

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

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

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

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

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


To date we've spent $470.40 on Tigger's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $45.00 in donations.

Kermit
Ohio
Kermit

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

THANK YOU TO KERMIT'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Trula Montgomery

UPDATE 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 $20.00 in donations.

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

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!

10/26/18: This sweet boy was in the cage next to a Yorkie we went to pick up from the shelter. He begged to be held and when our foster got him out of the crate he started kissing on the little Yorkie saying “PLEASE don’t leave me here! I’m a Yorkie wannabe!” His owner had just surrendered him and he was so scared so we had to scoop him up and rescue him too! Stay tuned for updates as we get to know him better!

We have a great relationship with the shelter and we were immediately notified when his stray hold was up and of course we flew to get him so he would not have to spend another second there. Right now precious Reagan is at the Vet receiving a full exam, including x-rays, lab work, urinalysis, immunizations and any other care he might need. We can definitely use help in the way of donations to support his medical care and your prayers that he is in good health. Stay tuned for updates soon!

Beautiful Sissy is Waiting for You!
Tennessee
Sissy

Sissy is a beautiful 8-year-old, 11 pound Yorkie mix being fostered in Memphis, TN.

THANK YOU TO SISSY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Irene and Peter Havas

Bio update 10/12/18

Sissy has been in her foster home for one month and is ready to find her forever home now. She has had all of her needed Veterinary care including a dental cleaning to give her extra-sweet kissable capacity! Sissy came to use from an elderly owner who made Sissy the center of her universe. Sissy would love nothing better than to find another person to dote on her and give her lots of time and attention. Sissy is most definitely a people dog. She craves human companionship and interaction. When Sissy came to us, she had pretty severe separation anxiety. This is pretty normal for a dog who has lived 8 years of their life with a single individual who has suddenly vanished from their life. She has made tremendous progress in that arena and we think she will continue to do so. Sissy has got lots of SASS and SPUNK! She can jump like a kangaroo and almost as high. She loves to wrestle and play tug of war, fetch and chew on her chew toys. She also loves going for walks. We think Sissy is mostly like a Yorkie-Chihuahua mix and she likes to alert her people via a bark when she hears noise outside, so she is a good watch dog. By the same token, she is probably not a good candidate for apartment-living for the same reason. Sissy has a strong sense of what she wants and one thing she DEFEINITELY wants is to sleep in the same bed with her humans. In fact, she pretty much INSISTS on it and even likes to get under the covers too. Sissy would probably be fine in a home with another doggie friend who isn’t terribly “alpha” type. She is hesitant with children at first but will warm up to them if they have experience with dogs, are gentle and not too rambunctious. She would also be fine as an “only child.” Sissy’s biggest need is a person who will spend lots of time with her, not leave her alone for extended periods and wants to have a permanent LAP MAGNET of a furry best friend. Sissy loves lap sitting better than just about anything on earth. If you think you can give Sissy the perfect home and LAP for Sissy, then fill out an application to adopt her or email her foster Mom at ashley.skelly@yahoo.com for additional information.

Initial Bio 9/10/18

Meet sweet Sissy who just entered rescue today! Before going further....we need to issue this important ADOPTION CAUTION to potential adopters from Sissy’s foster Mom and we quote....”I’m fairly sure Sissy has lap magnets implanted in her body”..... so those of you who are lacking in the lap department need not apply LOL!

Sissy comes to us from an elderly owner who was no longer able to give Sissy the time and attention she needs. But make no mistake.... Sissy has been well loved and well cared for. She only needs to have her teeth cleaned and she will be ready for adoption. Sissy is most likely a Yorkie-Schnauzer Mix. She has a beautiful full tail and a bit longer body than a pure Yorkie but she is ADORABLE as you can see from her photos. She is house-trained, other dog friendly and did not blink at the ferral kitties her foster Mom feeds. She was around grandchildren in her former home. Sissy is going to make some lucky adopter very happy so if you think you have the PAWFECT home and LAP for Sissy then apply to adopt her today!

Buttons
Texas
Buttons

Meet Buttons, a handsome 10 pound, 10 year old boy who acts like a puppy. He is being fostered in Texas. He is diabetic, but is well managed on his insulin.

THANK YOU TO BUTTONS' RESCUE ANGELS!

Susan Klingbeil, Jane St. John, Ellen Bloom

UPDATE BIO. 08/08/18. 08/08/218: Button's glucose curve had been set... He was receiving way to much insulin. He stayed hypoglycemic all day on Monday while at the vet after receiving his 3.5 units as prescribed by his Cali vets. So, we are dropping him down to 2 units twice a day from the 3.5!!! Great news!!! I will bring him in next week for a simple blood draw to check his glucose to be certain we are on point. Also, we are changing him over to Novulin with their needles because they are so so small and the ones for Vetsulin are too big for this little baby. He will also be visiting the eye doctor then vetting should be nearing completion.

Please remember that we have many medical dogs in need at UYR...any and all donations to these babies care allow use to save another. Thank you!!

Initial Bio.08/06/18On July 28th, I was notified of a sweet little baby that was facing death in a veterinarian’s office. This sweet, little 9lb baby’s senior owner had fallen ill and was being hospitalized, while sweet Button had just been diagnosed on July 3rd with diabetes. The owner’s daughter could not administer insulin shots…thus dropping this baby off and requesting he be euthanized. The vet staff loved this little “Button” and went to work diligently, wanting to save his life by reaching out to social media while only having till midnight to do so.

I contacted all the necessary parties so we could come together on this babies rescue. Within the hour we had fosters in place with John and Sue, courtesy of Jasmin, temp vetting arranged, courtesy of Brigitte, and Delta processing his trip to me here in Texas with the help of Corrine with a Delta transporter, Sharlene and Mike. Love how a village comes together to save these babies.

Button’s arrived in my arms Friday, and as I always say, God knows what he is doing with these babies because on the drive home from the airport, I looked over at this little nugget in the car seat, only to see him in a full blown grand mal seizure. I immediately googled an emergency vet and within 6 minutes he was in the care of another vet. Button’s glucose had dropped to an extreme dangerous 36. Thank God this little man was a fighter, and an hour later after urgent care food was administered, we were back on the road to my vet another hour away. His sugar had started its rise again by the time we reached Refinery and sweet Buttons was back to his puppy like state. God protected him from this happening in flight! We have kept him on this food over the weekend, and Monday he will see the vet for a much-needed glucose curve to ensure we are on point with the correct dosage of insulin needed for this baby.

Diabetes in a dog is the EASIEST disease to care for and extremely cheap for meds. The trick is to make sure you get the curve done so that the correct dosage of a shot and food are given 12 hours apart and you have a healthy Yorkie that will live out his years like any other! It was noted that Buttons is a 10yr old baby…all 3 vets he has seen say there is no way…he acts and looks like a puppy and he truly does. I will discuss his age with my vet and when we assess his eyes and beautiful teeth, we can also get a good age.

Buttons is currently 9lbs and just the cutest little bundle of love! If you are interested in adoption or wish to contribute to the care of this sweet little boy, please visit us at www.uyr.us.

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 9/13/18: 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 3 pound and 1 pound 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!! Thank you and bless you all. Please use the donate button below.

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 ❤

UPDATE BIO 08/24/18. Happy happy happy gotcha day for United Yorkie Rescue!! This adorable little baby was broken and bruised from head to toe at the hands of an evil fiance. The best day of his life was when the woman who loved him so much for 8yrs handed him over to me at the ER. Here we are a year later, and we are just now preparing Hank for the adoption world.

United Yorkie Rescue spared no expense helping Hank heal. We are currently preparing sleepovers with fosters, as this babies scars run deep emotionally with separation. So it's time to open the doors for him. Once again, this baby had over 12k in medical and we so appreciate everyone of you who help us with their medical needs. Your donations can be placed at www.uyr.us.

Please, if you are interested in Hank, he will have specific needs. He will need someone who is home the majority of the day. Someone who doesn't mind that Hank wears a belly band since the beating he took caused a stricture and he may leak. Personally, i think he looks adorable in them! Someone who will let him be close until he feels comfortable enough to choose that comfy doggie bed on the floor, someone who will allow him to snuggle with you in your bed until he's ready to choose somewhere else. Whomever we choose, you will be blessed with a baby that will not leave your side, that will play toys with you and loves other dogs, is great around cats, children, men and women. Please feel free to fill out an application on our website. Thank you for loving our babies... Bless you!

UPDATE BIO. 07/22/18. All of you following this sweet nugget know that Hank was a victim of violent abuse. He's been in rescue since September last year. After three surgeries, numerous tests and repairs, Hank is finally growing bone on his shattered femur. We are ready to remove his plate for his final orthopedic surgery!!! Now Hank still has issues with his bladder,that was damaged as well, when a vicious human attacked him. Hank just leaks due to a stricture in his bladder, however, a simple belly band is such an easy fix as he is 100% potty trained. Emotionally, Hank will always want his future furever mommy and or daddy close by... his emotional scars run deep, but they are readily fixed with much love and security.

We are currently looking into this last fix which may take me back to A&M, who besides my vets at Refinery Road, have been instrumental in this sweet baby's surgeries. Hank's medical expenses have been one of the highest bills that United Yorkie Rescue has encountered, (more than $10,000) but who could say no to this sweet angel who was bruised from head for to toe. If you are able to donate to Hank's high medical or his final ortho surgery or any of our many medical fosters we would be so appreciative. If that's not possible, please share his story. If you can, please use the donate button under this bio. Thank you and bless you!!

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

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

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

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

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

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

Siezures: We will start Kepra

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

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

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

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

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

Update 11/18/17:

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

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

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

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

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

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

Initial Bio 9/20/17:

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

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

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

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

Meet precious Jackson. Jackson is a 6 lb. boy being fostered in TX.

THANK YOU TO JACKSON'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Sylvia Stapleton

UPDATE BIO: 08/30/18. 4 to 6yr old Jackson is having such a hard time. He was surrendered as a 4 month failed attempt to find an owner. However, we most definitely feel he was likely a dump due to his horrible state. This sweet angel had the worst oral infection and lost all of his teeth with the exception of maybe 6.

Immediately following surgery and after the the trach tube removal, his trachea fully collapsed, so it was a rush to the ER for the oxygen chamber overnight and sedation meds. He is now recouping at home. Pleas send some love and prayers his way... he is just a little love bundle!!!

INITIAL BIO. 08/27/18. This sweet little 6lbs of cuteness just arrived in our care. Jackson came to us an owner surrender. I can tell you he is a doll, he gets along with other dogs, both big and small, as well as cats. We will take him this week for vetting so stayed tuned for his availability.

THANK YOU TO LUCY BELLE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Behnaz Memarzadeh

INITIAL BIO> 10/28/18. Lucy is a sweet little girl who is being fostered in Lancaster, TX. She is 10 yrs. old and weighs about 5.5 lbs. Lucy came into UYR following her second surgery for luxating patella in both knees. She will need some time to heal before being eligible for adoption.

She is a shy little one, so we are working on confidence too. She is a very well-mannered pup who travels well in her kennel and is housetrained. Lucy Belle was an only “child” in her former home, so we are also working hard on our social skills with her foster sibs. Because of her size and the lifelong need to be very careful with her legs she will need a home with no small children. Please keep Lucy Belle in your thoughts as she heals. Stay tuned and follow her progress.


To date we've spent $0 on Lucy Belle's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $10.00 in donations.

Rambo

Meet Rambo. He is an adorable 9 year old, 12 pound sweetheart being fostered in Plano, TX.

THANK YOU TO RAMBO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Elizabeth Sandelis

INITIAL BIO. 08/13/18. Sweet Rambo was found roaming the streets over a month ago. Luckily, he found an amazing lady that saved this sweet baby. Elizabeth made sure this little angel saw the vet, received his immunizations and searched for his owner. As you can see in the picture, she was truly an amazing savior for sweet Rambo down to the grooming. However, her household is full so thee search began for his owner. The daughter of the owner saw this baby posted and recognized this little one as her parents dog. When Elizabeth addressed getting this baby back to his owner, they declined. They stated they could no longer care for him. So whatcha gonna do,,,accept this cuties surrender to United Yorkie Rescue!!! ❤

Though we just picked up this little guy and we are getting to know him, he is absolutely a sweetheart and has fit right into my pack of adorable Yorkies. He does have an issue with one of his eyes that appears to be a luxating lens, so he will see the eye specialist this week to address this.

Please stay tuned as we see to his medical and we can update on this sweet boy's progress. As always, please know we have many many medical dogs in rescue so any donations made to UYR can take the burden off our costs and allow us to rescue another. Donations can be made to www.uyr.us on our Paypal button, and please send all inquiries related to Rambo to olgauyrtx@gmail.com.

Ginger
Virginia
Ginger

Ginger is a 2-year-Old, 5-7 pound Yorkie-Papillon mix being fostered in south central Virginia.

Initial Bio 11/5/18

Sweet Ginger comes to UYR from a hoarding situation. She was covered in fleas and is very thin. After a few days in foster care Ginger is rid of those pesky fleas though still itching a bit from their aftermath. She is also gobbling up the nutritious food she is receiving in her foster home so we hope she will gain a pound or so which will put her at a healthier weight.

Ginger is a young, playful pup who is proving to be very much a people dog. Her foster Mom says she would be very happy dividing her time between playing fetch and giving kisses while perched very close to foster Mom’s face. Ginger is aptly named for her ginger colored coat that is very much the length and consistency of a Papillon’s. She also sports a full and fluffy tail. So far Ginger seems to be mostly house-trained and has had only 1 or 2 accidents in a few days. She loves to be outside whether it is on a leash or running around the yard.

Ginger’s perfect home is one where her person can commit 13-15 years to her care due to her young age. She has the energy of a young dog and needs lots of play and exercise. She gets along with the other small dogs in her foster home so another dog of similar age, energy and size would be fine. Ginger still needs her physical exam, spay, microchip and needs to gain some weight. We pray she is heartworm negative since she has had virtually no medical care whatsoever. She sees the Dogtor soon so keep those paws crossed that she gets a clean bill of health! Ginger could use some donations towards her care so if you can please visit our website and click the PayPal button directly below. Thank You!


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

Initial Bio 10/25/18: This just breaks our hearts. This sweet senior Yorkie was just dropped off by a family member at a kill shelter at the tender age of 16 years. The shelter reported that she had a single family since she was a puppy. Her person had died, no one wanted her so off she went. Her name is Precious……We can imagine her as an adorable tiny puppy, and what an aptly descriptive name that must have been in her youth. Was she precious to someone back then? Obviously somewhere along the way she ceased to be precious; at least not precious enough to bathe, or trim her nails, or feed her properly, or brush her soft fur or just hang onto her in the time in her life that she needs safety and security the most. Now very old, with diminished vision and hearing she finds herself in a cold steel cage with lots of barking and commotion. Little does she know that most shelters do NOT have the funds or resources to handle anything other than younger, healthy, adoptable dogs and that if a rescue didn’t step up to help her, this would likely be the last day of her life. The call comes in to our area foster asking if UYR can help her. This is a very hard call…..we have so many hospice dogs now and lots of seniors. We have had an onslaught of very needy, high cost medical dogs this year. All of this means that foster homes stay full longer and our expenses are higher. We know it is very likely Precious will be likely VERY DIFFICULT to adopt due to her advanced age. She has had practically ZERO Veterinary care in a very long time. The severe neglect is obvious increasing the chances she may be not only very old, but may also have complex medical needs. It always hurts to say “No” to ANY dog…..but to say “No” to THIS dog seemed just unconscionable. So, we said “YES” to Precious and around 4 PM yesterday this matted little hot mess of a Yorkie was saved from a certain fate and did NOT end the day taking her last breath alone and afraid surrounded by strangers. Instead….with YOUR HELP (AND WE NEED YOUR HELP!), she will have a very different fate. She is already receiving nurturing, care, nutritious food and a clean soft bed to lay in. Tomorrow she will visit the groomer and very soon she will receive a full medical evaluation, blood work, immunizations, and all the care she has been missing for a very long time. Her future is suddenly much brighter because we have so many amazing supporters who always come through to help us help save yet another sweet senior soul.

Meet Addie. Addie is a 14-year-old, 6 lb girl being fostered in WV.

THANK YOU TO ADDIE LIVINIA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Karry Rogers, Angie Cagle, Rita Sue Browning

INITIAL BIO.09/29/18. Addie found herself at fourteen years old with no home. Her owners got her as a puppy and are now moving to a no pet apartment. But that's ok because United Yorkie Rescue believes this girl deserves a retirement fit for a queen. She arrived with her tiny cheetah coat and her fluffy blanket from home. It was sad to see a tiny senior in this condition, dropped at a shelter, scared, then a four hour transport to her foster home.

Addie just got home, had her bath, cheetah coat and blanket in the wash, and she will soon get a nice dinner. She will get a fluffy new bed where she can relax and get a good night sleep. Addie met several of her fur siblings this evening and they are already a family. It was sweet to watch them accept each other, respectfully.

Addie is going to the vet asap for severe dental disease. She may be deaf and going blind. We will have a full report soon. Please consider donating to Addie's vetting. This lovely senior lady deserves a happy and healthy retirement life filled with love.


To date we've spent $407.20 on Addie Livinia's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $295.00 in donations.

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

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 $170.23 on Zee's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $100.00 in donations.

Avery

Avery

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

THANK YOU TO AVERY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Wendy Klinke

UPDATE BIO. 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 $38.00 on Avery's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $38.00 in donations.
