Scrappy

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

THANK YOU TO SCRAPPY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Initial Bio 11-11-18 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 $925.02 on Scrappy's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $145.00 in donations.

Waylon
Arkansas
Waylon

Waylon is a tiny 3.4 pound Yorkie boy who is estimated to be 6 years old. He is being fostered in Bryant, AR.

Bio update 12/4/18

Initial Bio 11/27/18

Willie and Waylon were abandoned at a Veterinarian’s office. When no one came for them, the office notified animal control, and these two adorable tiny boys were off to the shelter. That’s very sad......But brighter days are most definitely in store for these guys because Santa knew they were VERY GOOD BOYS so he summoned his team of dedicated UYR elves who hitched up the reindeer and put a transport together to whisk them off to safety. Freshly groomed and in their holiday ribbons we think these two boys are just adorable!

Willy and Waylon came to us badly in need of a grooming with matting, very long nails, thinning hair, dry skin and smelling pretty terrible. Neither has been neutered and both are badly in need of a dental. Both of them have asymptomatic luxating patellas, however neither is experiencing pain or gait problems and therefore corrective surgery is not indicated at this time. Both pups had full lab work done and all came back completely PAWFECT. Most of their health issues are minor and most likely the result of poor nutrition and grooming neglect.

More about Waylon. The shelter Vet noticed a mass near Waylon’s groin and we were worried until his Vet visit today revealed it is just an undescended testicle which will be addressed when he is neutered. Waylon also has significant dental tartar and decay and needs a full dental cleaning with likely extractions. Waylon is a Velcro boy and always wants to be in a lap. He is always asking to be picked up. He loves giving kisses and is very submissive.

More about Willie. Willie has early onset cataracts but his exam revealed that his vision is not significantly compromised. He reacts very well to movement, and his pupils respond really well and does not act vision impaired at all. Willie is believed to be 1-2 years older than Waylon. He has only 2 teeth and these are in bad shape and will likely need to be removed.

Unlike Waylon who wants to live in your lap, Willie is a seeker and explorer. When he is done, he will come to the couch and ask up, but he lays beside you, vs. in your lap and he too gives sweet but sparing kisses compared to Waylon.

Willie and Waylon are bonded and we would love for them to be adopted together. Also please note that these guys are too tiny for children so homes with children under the age of 14 will not be considered, no exceptions. Neither dog is house-trained so a patient adopter with lots of time to help them learn this behavior is a must. We hope it will be easier to train them once they are neutered. Both are scheduled for neuter and dentals in early January so stay tuned for updates!

Willie and Waylon would appreciate any donations toward their Vet bills so if you can help please click the PayPal button below and Thank You!


To date we've spent $225.67 on Waylon's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Willie
Arkansas
Willie

Willie is a tiny 3.8 pound Yorkie boy who is estimated to be 8 years old. He is being fostered in Bryant, AR.

Willie comes to UYR along with buddy Waylon. These tiny boys were abandoned at a Veterinarian’s office. When no one came for them, the office notified animal control, and these two adorable tiny boys were off to the shelter. We initially thought these two were very bonded but after two weeks in their foster home we have discovered that isn’t the case so we are removing their bonded pair status and will consider separate adoptions.

Willie was in rough shape with matting, very long nails, bad skin and other signs of neglect when he came to us. He has early onset cataracts but his exam revealed that his vision is not compromised at all and he gets around like a champ! He has only 2 teeth and these are in bad shape and will likely need to be removed when he has his dental.

Willie is a very smart boy and is a seeker and explorer. When he is done, he will come to the couch and ask up and has started laying in foster Mom’s lap recently. Willie is a tiny boy so tiny rules apply: No children under age 14, small dog siblings only, etc. Willy is not house-trained so a patient adopter with lots of time to help him learn is a must. He is scheduled for neuter and dental in early January so stay tuned for updates! Willie’s veterinary expenses will run about $1000 so any donations towards his care would be much appreciated.

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.

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
California
Lily CA

Meet Lily. She is a 7-8 year-old yorkie mix who weighs about 20 lbs and is being fostered in CA.

Update 11-20-18: Lily has been with us for about 6 weeks now and it has been a very smooth adjustment. She has blossomed. Lily is the sweetest most affectionate dog. She is well behaved, loves going for walks and she and my malti-poo have fun playing together. We had our vet visit and she is now up to date on vaccinations and she seems to be healthy. The vet thinks she's more like 7 or 8 years old rather than 4-5. Even though she's lost a little weight, due to her 'mix' she will never be tiny. She is camera shy so getting a good picture where her adorable face and big brown eyes can be seen has been difficult. But we'll keep trying. She is too adorable to not have a full-face photo.

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 (and Georgie)

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, my name is Bailey. I am very cute and sweet
Florida
Bailey

Meet adorable, tiny Bailey. She is 8 1/2 years old and only 4.5 pounds. Bailey is being fostered in Clearwater, FL.

Initial Bio 12-5-18 Little Bailey just arrived at her foster home today. Her former owners knew she needed a home where someone could give her the time and attention she needed. She was alone so much of the day, and her family knew how sad that was for her. It was not easy, but they knew they were not the right home for her any longer.

Her foster parents just met her and there is so much to find out about little Bailey. They do know that because of her tiny size she cannot go to a home with children under the age of 14. Please come back soon to and get to know Bailey better.


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

Hello. I love you

Is there room on your lap for me?
Florida
Brinkley

Brinkley is an adorable 10 year old Yorkie old boy who weighs a skinny 10.10 pounds. He would be a great family dog for one lucky family. Brinkley is being fostered in Bradenton, FL.

THANK YOU TO BRINKLEY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sue Register

UPDATED BIO 12/02/2018: If you want an almost perfect dog, then Brinkley is the one for you. There is nothing his foster parents can say about Brinkley that isn’t good. Yes, he has a heart murmur but it doesn’t affect him at all. In fact, he does not even need to be on medication for it at this time. His vet said he will live a long life. He still runs and plays and is the best dog ever. If fact, his foster dad said Brinkley is the nicest, most obedient, well-behaved and well-trained dog he has ever had or been around.

Here are all the wonderful things about Brinkley. Just check out this fabulous list of why Brinkley is the best dog ever.

*First - and this is so good—Brinkley is house-trained. He knows to do his business outside.

*He is friendly and gets along with other pets and people and even well-behaved kids over the age of 8.

*He is not much of a barker at all.

*He sleeps all night in his crate; in fact he likes to be in his crate and goes in willingly.

*He waits to be called or asked to come on furniture or in your lap.

*He really likes to be on his people’s lap. Who wouldn’t want a great, cuddly lap dog?

*He does great in the car.

*He walks nicely on the leash, and enjoys his walks. He doesn’t pull or try to run off.

*He is healthy and athletic. He loves exercise, and a fenced yard or trips to the dog park would be great.

*He is and calm and quiet. He would be perfect in any home.

*Brinkley listens extremely well.

All in all, this is one almost perfect dog. Any family lucky enough to adopt him will be getting a super great dog. A person could look high and low, but a better dog couldn’t be found anywhere. Although Brinkley is 10 years old he is very young in spirit and in heart. He would be a wonderful family dog or a dog for active seniors looking for a companion to love for the rest of his life.

Please, don’t pass this great guy by. He is waiting for his forever home. He can’t understand why no one seems to want him to be their forever pup. Please fill out an adoption application for Brinkley. You won’t be sorry. We promise you.

UPDATED BIO 11/16/2018: Brinkley was surrendered to UYR because the child in the home developed an allergy to him. He has been in his foster home for just a few days, but has already had a vet visit. He is a bit underweight at 10.10 lbs and a healthy weight for him would be 12 lbs.

Foster Dad reports that he is a very sweet, friendly and loving dog. He is also calm, obedient and sleeps happily in his crate. He appears to be a very happy fella who gets along with the other dogs in the home. He seems to be house-trained as well – yeah!

Brinkley does have a Grade III heart murmur, but does not need to be on any medication at this time. He also has some very mild skin issues which most likely is fleabite dermatitis, but that is very correctible.

Would Brinkley be the perfect pup for you and your family? Brinkley can be placed in a home with well-behaved young people over the age of 8. He would also love to have other dogs for companions in his new home as well.

Initial bio 11-15-18 Brinkley just arrived at his foster home today. He was with his former family for most of his life. They had to sadly surrender him when their young child developed a rare allergy to a Yorkie. Even their doctor admitted this doesn't happen often, but it could happen and it did. Their young boy was getting too sick and with tears in their eyes they had to find a new home for Brinkley.

Brinkley was great in the long care ride to his foster home. He just stretched out in the back, attached to his seat belt harness, and quietly made the trip like a perfect gentleman. He has already shown that he likes the other dogs in the home. He ate his treat, and did his business outside. His former parents said he is house trained, but we will wait to see about that for sure. He is sweet and loving and gets along with everyone, big people, well behaved young people over the age of 8, and of course other dogs.

Brinkley will be seeing the vet tomorrow for some vetting and we will know more. Check back soon when we know more about Brinkley's health and personality to see if this fellow will be the perfect pup for you and your family.


To date we've spent $179.75 on Brinkley's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $50.00 in donations.

Rocky is a cutie

Like the scruffy look. Here it is - you are welcome
Florida
Rocky

MEET ROCKY! He is 10 years old and weighs an obese 15.9 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, Nestor Sanchez, Karry Rogers

UPDATED BIO 12/10/2018: Our sweet, albeit pudgy, *little* Rocky was rescued by United Yorkie Rescue on October 15. He was just hours away from euthanasia when rescued, but we are happy to say that he is now doing well in his foster home.

Rocky initially saw the vet the day after he was rescued. It was confirmed then that he has a severe collapsing trachea, as well as being very obese at 19 lbs. We are trying different medications to obtain the best results possible, and we seem to be on the right track at this point. To help him lose weight, our sweet little boy is on a very strict diet. By the way, this does not make Rocky a happy boy, but as he loses weight, he will feel so much better and it will all be worth it! The good news is that he is steadily losing weight and is now down to 15.9 lbs.

Rocky had a follow up visit with his vet on December 7th and blood work was done to determine if he may have a problem with his thyroid – results will be posted when they are in. If he does have a thyroid issue, it could be attributing to his obesity, which ultimately can further complicate his collapsing trachea.

Currently, the only time Rocky seems to have coughing and breathing issues with his trachea, is when he gets excited (like going to the vet). Luckily, Rocky is a very mellow guy, so it’s not as much of a problem for him as it would be for a muyh more rambunctious and feisty dog.

At this time, Rocky is not ready to be adopted, but we are hoping he will be ready very soon. We are currently accepting applications and will review them when he is ready to go to his furever home.

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.

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.

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.

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 Ocala, 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, Pet Fair Donations in Florida, Nestor Sanchez, Barbie Asplundh, Angie Cagle

UPDATED BIO 11/22/2018: Romeo was surrendered by his previous owner because he was unable to continue to care for him and wanted a better life for this sweet boy. Romeo is still under-weight at 4 lbs and should gain at least 1 to 1-1/2 lbs to be a healthier weight. Please note that Romeo must be an only dog in his forever home. He prefers to get all the attention.

Here’s what Romeo had to say recently:

Hi, Romeo here. I am so excited. I just visited a new doctor and had my teeth cleaned and man-oh-man do I feel so much better. My foster mom says she is much happier when I give her kisses now because my breath smells so much better.

My new doctor gave me a thorough exam, especially since I’m still having trouble raising my head and I have a curvature in my spine and they tell me that my vertebra is not normally-shaped. It may be a herniated disc or I may have been injured in some way in the past. The nice lady doctor wants to try a new treatment plan. Foster Mom said that I am going to have laser treatments once a week for several weeks to see if this will help me. I will also be taking a medicine called prednisone to see if that helps me with the discomfort I am having. I don’t mind taking medicine so that does not bother me. My foster mom is hopeful that there will be some improvements. Me too, and my paws are crossed.

My vet bills are now almost $2,000 so if you are reading my update, that means you are interested in knowing how I am doing. Since you are interested in me, maybe you are feeling a bit generous. Please think about making a donation to help UYR with my medical expenses. Even $5 will help – and it will help UYR when they are approached about taking in another little medically-needy doggie like me. Stay tuned to see if this new treatment plan will work.

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!

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

UPDATED BIO 09/06/2018: 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.

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. 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!

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


To date we've spent $2083.42 on Romeo's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $2315.00 in donations.

I am going to my foster home today

I know I am cute and you know you want me
Florida
Sophie

Say hello to sweet Sophie. She is 8.5 years old and only 4.10 pounds of adorableness. Sophie is being fostered in Leesburg, FL.

INITIAL BIO 12/09/20189: Sophie only arrived at her foster home yesterday and is settling in nicely. She is a little skittish right now since she is not sure of everyone, including the other dogs in the home. She seems to really like people a lot and wants to be around her foster mom and dad most of the time. She especially seems to enjoy wandering around the fenced backyard and checking out all the different smells out there. She did great in the car ride to her foster home. However, there is still a lot to learn about this little cutie pie.

Sophie will need to see the vet very soon. She is on special food for her sensitive stomach and according to her previous vet information she had a reaction to the vaccines. It was suggested that she not receive all her vaccinations at one time but to stagger them. Her foster parents have to talk this over with their vet and see what will be the best thing to do for Sophie.

In about two to three weeks, once Sophie has seen the vet and her foster parents know more about this little, sweet girl, she will be ready for her forever home.In her previous home she was left alone in her crate for sometimes up to 13 hours while everyone was at work. Sophie's foster mom promised her that her next home would have someone who would be home with her most of the time to love her, and cuddle with her, and be her very best friend.

PLEASE NOTE: Because of Sophie's small size she cannot go to a home with children under the age of 14. Sophie must have a forever home with at least one stay at home parent.


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

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, Sietze Rotton

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 $359.41 on Star's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $125.00 in donations.

Maggie May
Indiana
Maggie May

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

THANK YOU TO MAGGIE MAY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

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

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

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

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

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

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

We will check in again soon.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


To date we've spent $3574.49 on Maggie May's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $2200.92 in donations.

Callie
Massachusetts
Callie

Meet Callie, a sweet 6 year old, 8 pound little Yorkie girl being fostered in Massachusetts.

Initial Bio 12/2/18: I spent several days in this thing they call a "Shelter" in NYC, and it was very scary with dogs barking and crying day and night. Then one day a nice person put me in a Van with other dogs and one kitten and we went for a long ride to Massachusetts. It was dark, cold and rainy and I was barking and nervous. Then this person (foster mom) scooped me up and held me tight and said it was going to be "ok" you are safe now. She put me in a harness, went for a quick walk and then back in the car for another ride. We were greeted by my FM pups at the door. OH BOY FRIENDS and they are my size! I had food and the best night's sleep in a long time. I slept in my own crate and it was quiet and peaceful. I'll be going to the Vet soon for a checkup and will update you when I'm settled in.


To date we've spent $0 on Callie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 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, John Sauser

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


To date we've spent $576.55 on Kermit's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $45.00 in donations.

Benji

Benji is a 9.5 year-old, 5-pound Yorkie boy being fostered near Summerton, SC.

Update 12/03/2018

Meet Benji! He is a 10 year old 4.5 pound male Yorkie. He is very active & in great health. Benji is house trained & leash trained. He enjoys walks 2-3 times daily. He came to us as an owner surrender. He was matted, flea infested, and showed signs of neglect. Benji spent a lot of time in a kennel and was not socialized. He has made so much progress in his foster home & continues to form trusting relationships with humans. He is enjoying life now and needs someone to share it with, maybe you!

Initial Bio 11/7/2018

Benji was surrendered to UYR from loving owners who knew they did not have time to give Benji the attention he needs and deserves. So far he is sweet, loving and playful. He does need some work in the house-training arena so a patient person with lots of time to devote to him would be ideal. We are still getting to know him so stay tuned or updates.

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!

Josie

Josie is a 6–year-old, 6.5 pound Yorkie girl being fostered in Murfreesboro, TN.

Update December 3, 2018: Josie is doing well in her foster home. Since arriving in Murfreesboro she has been spayed, groomed and had her teeth brushed. She is still very shy but spending more time exploring her foster home. Josies foster family is working on house training and it is going well. She does use a pee pad sometimes and we are thinking that maybe this was part of her past life. She weighed 6.5lbs at her last appointment but she is eating well and seems to be putting on some weight. She likes to play with her foster brother, so I think she would enjoy sharing a home with another playful small dog. She will need a family with lots of patience and love. Because of her shyness a family with older children would be best. Josie sleeps with her foster mom and dad at the foot of their bed in her own little bed. Josie loves her little doggie bed. Josie likes turkey for treats and an occasional hot dog. She has not learned to sit but has learned to walk on leash. She enjoys taking car rides and is becoming more comfortable around her human foster sisters. Please email if you have questions.

Initial Bio 11/19/18

Little Josie landed in the shelter as a stray with no collar, no tags, and no microchip. When her stray hold was up we went and got this sweet girl. She just saw the Vet today and thankfully she is in pretty good physical health. She weighs about 6.5 pounds but is too thin. The Vet has instructed Josie’s foster parents to feed her three times a day to get her to a healthier weight of about 8 pounds. The Vet was unable to tell if Josie is spayed or not so a special blood test was drawn to find out. We should have the results in ten days. Right now Josie is very shy and spends her time in her bed. She will shrink away from an outstretched hand but we hope with lots of love and attention that will change soon. She LOVES food and is very food motivated. She is not house-trained so she is working on that skill in her foster home. We think she would like another small friendly dog to be pals with. Josie has a beautiful full tail. We are just getting to know her so stay tuned for updates. To help with Josie’s medical care click the PayPal button below.

He has really come out of his shell and is the happiest and sweetest dog you’ll ever meet. He loves being around all of his fur brother and sisters so he will need to go to a home with at least one other small sized dog. Homes without young children and without big dogs are preferred for Maxx due to his tiny size. His foster mom wants him to find the perfect home because he is such a special little pup. He needs someone who has lots of time to spend with him because he loves his person and is a Velcro boy! Maxx has put a Furever Home at the top of his Christmas wish list so share his story and if you are his perfect person apply to adopt him today!

Maxy

Maxy is an adorable 9 year old, 17 pound sweetheart being fostered in Nashville, TN.

THANK YOU TO MAXY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Brandy Caldwell

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

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

Sugar Plum

Sugar Plum is a 2-year-old (estimate), 10 pound Yorkie being fostered near Clarksville, TN.

Initial Bio 12/10/18

Sugar Plum has a very sad past. She was found by a Good Samaritan left on the side of the road in a cage. It was cold, raining and she was covered in waste. Sugar Plum was held in protective custody until her release to UYR. She was absolutely terrified. Now in her foster home for several days she is beginning to understand that not all humans are cruel and some human hands are used to give comfort, not hurt. Her foster Mom believes she was punished physically for having “accidents” because each time she has one she cowers down, covers her head, crawls under something and gets into a fetal position. We think this just heartbreaking. She seems particularly fearful of men. She is just beginning to trust her foster Mom and Dad and is now “asking” to be loved on and held which is HUGE! Sugar Plum needs an adults only home with a patient adopter who will help her learn to trust and continue to work with her on house-training. She also needs a fenced yard and perhaps one other dog of similar size. She would also be fine as an only fur-kid. This sweet girl is an absolute sweetheart once she gains your trust and deserves so much better than the life she has had. If you think you are Sugar Plum’s perfect human then apply to adopt her today. To help with Sugar Plum’s Vet bills please click the PayPal button below and Thank You!

Annie Grace

Meet Annie Grace. Annie is estimated to be a 1-year-old, 6 lb girl being fostered in Plano, TX.

THANK YOU TO ANNIE GRACE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sylvia Stapleton, Karry Rogers, Jane Montford, Sandy Pagnotta, Michelle Stair, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Carol Gostomski, Michael Porter, Teresa Beament

INITIAL BIO. 11/26/18. Others would have said, it’s just a dog, but when the vet asked if we wanted them to resuscitate this sick pup, United Yorkie Rescue quickly said, yes. Annie was in such horrible shape it is a miracle she made it through.

From Annie Grace:

No one knows how long I hid in the woods, in the cold and rainy days of October. October has been record breaking for rain and flash floods, but I stayed in the woods long enough to lose all my weight, get infested with fleas, get dehydrated and extremely sick. My hair was so matted they shaved it all off because nothing could be saved due to all the debris and sticks caught in it. The same day I was found, people in the shelter knew I needed an URGENT rescue due to my condition. They weren’t sure I would even make it through the night! When United Yorkie Rescue found out, they acted immediately!

My now foster mom drove through heavy rain, flooded streets and asked the shelter if they would keep the door open so she could come and pick me up. My foster mom says I was lifeless and my smell would make anyone sick to their stomach. It was very sad she says. I was in such bad shape she decided to go straight to the hospital. Even the vet told my foster mom he wasn’t sure I would make it through the night. I had pancreatitis, I was extremely dehydrated, I had a stomach infection, malnourished, air in my stomach that was making me very sick, flea infested, hook worm and high on the anemia scale. I was a bag of bones. So many people started to pray that I would get better. After two days in the hospital and astronomical bills I finally came home. I was so weak. I would fall to the side because I couldn’t even stand on my own. I couldn’t hold my head up, I wouldn’t eat or drink. I finally started to get better after two days in the hospital, a lot of sleep in a nice cozy bed and one week of syringe feeding.

My foster dad and brother would set a timer and every 30 minutes they would alternate Gatorade and pedialyte and through a syringe they would put it down my throat. Very slowly, I started to regain my strength and my energy, but my spirit was still broken. All my fur siblings would go outside to do their business and play and I would go hide behind the bar. I slept beside my foster dad and brother at night until they felt I was strong enough to sleep alone. My fur siblings are very patient with me. I have come a long way. I still need to get spayed, a dental, shots and all those things pups like me need.

My name is now Annie Grace. The Vet believes I am about a year old. I am extremely sweet and gorgeous. I have a beautiful white golden blonde color in my hair. I give a lot of kisses, I get along with my fur siblings which are a total of 6 other yorkies. I weigh under 6 pounds but I do need to gain some weight back. I will be ready for adoption soon but I will need to go to a home where I am not only loved and spoiled but where there is another “young” pup that likes to play and run around chasing each other. I play with my two boy fur siblings all day long until we wear ourselves out.

If you are seriously interested and you do have another pup at home please fill out an application. www.uyr.us

Please share my story so maybe people can help me by donating a few dollars to help with my vet bills which got to be so high in just a couple of days. Thank you for reading my story!

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!


To date we've spent $12532.25 on Hank's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $9999.99 in donations.

Lincoln
Texas
Lincoln

Meet Lincoln. Lincoln is a estimated 3-5-year-old, 12 lb boy being fostered in TX.

INITIAL BIO. 11-27-2018: Hi, my name is Lincoln.

My foster family just gave me that name. No one knows where I came from or if someone just dumped me near a road in Waxahachie, Texas. I was terribly matted, wet, cold, hungry, thirsty and terrified. I ran up to a woman who was taking the trash out near the road and she was nice enough to help me. She posted my picture on different media sites hoping someone would recognize me, but no one ever called her. She took me to the vet to see if I have a microchip, but I do not. She did not know what to do with me since she couldn’t keep me. She already had three large dogs in her back yard. She knew I would not survive in her back yard due to coyotes in her area. This nice lady brought me in, fed me, cut off all my matts, gave me a bath and a place to stay until my foster mom could come to pick me up the day before Thanksgiving. I was very lucky that my foster mom and this nice lady are friends because this is why I ended up with this amazing organization that helps other Yorkies. God Bless United Yorkie Rescue and all the volunteers that help out pups like me.

I am a big baby. I love attention. I am very sweet and get along with all my fur siblings. I have beautiful hazel eyes and a strong body. I am friendly and love people. I will soon get all my shots and get neutered. I am a medium size Yorkie and weigh about 12 pounds. I am energetic, but I also enjoy quiet time near my human. I love the outdoors and would love to go out for walks, but my current foster parents are outnumbered so they don’t take us out for walks, but we get plenty of play time in the back yard. We hope the vet will tell us how old I might be, but my foster family thinks that I may be between 3 and 5 years old. If you think you are looking for an extremely handsome looking Yorkie boy with my characteristics and you don’t mind if I sleep next to you then please fill out an application because I will be ready for adoption after my surgery for neutering. I will come ready with all the bells and whistles. I will soon get a dental, shots and microchip. I do go outside to do my business with my other fur siblings. No cages please.

I've Been Adopted!

To date we've spent $396.40 on Lincoln's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Lucy Belle

Meet Lucy. Lucy is a beautiful 5.5lb, 10 yr old beauty being fostered in TX.

THANK YOU TO LUCY BELLE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Behnaz Memarzadeh, Stephanie Saunders

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 $35.00 in donations.

Ginger
Virginia
Ginger

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

THANK YOU TO GINGER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Erna Shull

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 $368.70 on Ginger's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $50.00 in donations.

Precious Needs a World of Help!

Please Help us Help Precious
Virginia
Precious

Meet Precious, a VERY SENIOR, 5.8-pound Yorkie girl being fostered in Virginia.

THANK YOU TO PRECIOUS' RESCUE ANGELS!

Jan Freeman, Sandra Wendt, Sandy Rodabaugh, Teresa Beament, Sandy Pagnotta, Wendy Fuhrnaneck, Deena Sloan, Glen Sloan, Tony Heath, Allison Triplett, Karry Rogers, Mandy Smith, Kathleen White, Christine Flaherty, Laura Ferguson, Pei Ling Chan, Diane Polinsky, Jeanette Foster, Denise Smith, Loretta Williams, Sarah Bartel, Carol and Greg Gawdun, Rita Sue Browning, Connie Pfeiffer, Virginia Phillips, Barbara Bromley, Sandra Williams

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. So PLEASE share Precious’s story and PLEASE donate towards her care by clicking the PayPal button below. Thank You!


To date we've spent $678.60 on Precious's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1290.00 in donations.

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, Suzanne Oliver

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 $527.91 on Addie Livinia's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $395.00 in donations.

Merry
West Virginia
Merry

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

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

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

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


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

Serafina

Meet Seraphina. Seraphina is a 6-year-old, 5 lb girl being fostered in WV.

INITIAL BIO. 12/11/18. Welcome little Seraphina to our rescue. This little sweetheart is six years old. She came from a loving home but went through a few personality changes after she had puppies. Seraphina became less tolerant of children and teenagers when there were friends visiting. She became nippy but never bit anyone.

Her foster home is kid free and she is doing well. She gets along with all dogs and is very affectionate to her new foster mom. Seraphina is house-trained and pad trained. She is rather vocal at times so a house is best for her. She made dog friends the first night so she may like another dog in the family. She is getting spayed, vaccines, and she will be ready to look for her new family. She is used to having someone home with her most of the day and she does seem happiest when foster mom is with her.


To date we've spent $589.51 on Serafina's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

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

THANK YOU TO ZEE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Brenda Clark, Bruce Atkinson

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 $200.00 in donations.

Avery
Wisconsin
Avery

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

THANK YOU TO AVERY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Wendy Klinke

UPDATE BIO. 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.
