Leia Star

Leia Star is 2 year old 4 pound chihuahua girl being fostered near Bryant, AR.

3/4/20 UPDATE ON LEIA STAR: This precious little girl went for her first ever in her life dogter visit today at almost 3 years of age. (birthday 4-1). She is in remarkably good condition, and does not even need a dental. She weighed in a whopping 5 pounds and was a sweetheart through all the needles, poking, and prodding. She fell in love with the male vet tech and gave him a hug first thing. She has a mild luxation on her back right leg, but he had to palpate it to get it to pop out. It has not done it on its own, and is nothing to worry about. She has a few fungal infected places on her ear tips which will clear up with cleaning and antifungal ointment. The foster has spent only about 4 days with this perfect princess, and she already rolls over for belly rubs, gives wonderful hugs and the sweetest tiny little kisses. She likes men and women equally, but she due to her small size, she will not be adopted to a home with children under 12. She sleeps all night in her playpen with her favorite toy and a blankey. She will also be happy to sleep with you too! This angel is a perfect companion, she wants to be with you always and follows you around the house in her perfect little prance. And best of all, the foster has not heard her bark even one time. She is a bit timid at first but boy does she warm up to a good heart fast! She will be spayed on March 5th and be ready for her new furever home within a few days after that. Any questions about this sweetie please email Foster mom.

Initial Bio 2/26/19: Meet sweet and petite Leia Star (pronounced Lay Uh) who just today, joined the UYR family of rescues. She is an owner surrender, around 4 pounds or less, and is excited about her new start in life. She is 2 years old and will be the big 3 on April 1st. More to come about this delightful little girl after her vet check up next week, and as we get to know her a little better. I do know she loves to play fetch. Meanwhile, just admire her photos! Psssst - don't tell her she is not a yorkie, she doesn't know.


To date we've spent $408.42 on Leia Star's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

I am a yorkie wannabe - ummmmmm, a parti-poodle mix. I am cute.

I am learning proper puppy manners in my foster home
Florida
Dreyfus

MEET DREYFUS. He is a Parti-Poodle mix puppy who is estimated to be around 2 years old. Dreyfus weighs 12 lbs and is being fostered in Palm Coast, FL. Dreyfus must be adopted within the State of Florida. Unfortunately, we cannot make any exceptions.

UPDATED BIO 03/27/2020: Dreyfus was rescued from an animal shelter just a couple of weeks ago. His owners never came for him and when the shelter put out a notice to its rescue partners that they were filling up due to COVID-19, UYR stepped up to rescue Dreyfus even though he was not a yorkie or yorkie mix.

Dreyfus has been to the doctor for a well-dog visit and all of his vaccinations are up to date. Foster mom reports that he rides great in the car and loves walking on a leash. She also said that Dreyfus loves to snuggle with his people and probably should be in the running for a Snuggling Award.

Dreyfus appears to have not had much puppy training by his previous owner(s) and needs some further socialization and training before he will be ready for adoption. He is a smart little boy, so he should learn quickly with positive reinforcement when he exhibits not-so-appropriate behavior.

Dreyfus does have what Foster Mom thinks is separation anxiety, so his perfect home would have at least one stay-at-home parent. A fenced-in yard would be a bonus especially during the house-training process.

PLEASE NOTE: NO CHILDREN under the age of 14 years old. No exceptions made, so please dont ask.

INITIAL BIO 03/16/2020: Dreyfus found himself at the animal shelter several weeks ago and wondered why his family brought him there. At first, he thought he was having a play date with other dogs, but then he found out differently. But Dreyfus still bravely waited for his family to come and pick him up - but they never came. It was noisy in the shelter and there were lots of other dogs and he didnt much like it. He heard the shelter people say that they were getting very crowded and had no more room since there was something called a Coronavirus and lots of dogs and cats were coming in, so he was getting worried. But the shelter reached out to United Yorkie Rescue and even though Dreyfus isnt a yorkie or yorkie mix, we wanted to ensure that he was safe and scooped him up to be a yorkie wannabe with UYR. We think Dreyfus is either a parti-poodle and perhaps a Cockapoo whatever he is, he is very handsome!

Dreyfus was estimated to be 5 years old at the shelter, but when he saw the UYR vet, the vet said "no way" that he was likely only 18 months old. Still a very young little puppy. Dreyfus is a very active little boy who walks well on a leash and knows the sit command - smart! He likes to play with toys, especially a ball, and is energetic, especially when there are treats involved.

Sadly, Dreyfus has apparently not had any consistency in teaching him proper puppy manners and foster mom calls him a wild child. No one has taken the time to train this sweet boy how to behave or started him on house-training yet. He needs an adoptive family who has the time and energy to teach him basic obedience skills and continue with his house-training. Once he learns what he is supposed and not supposed to do, he will surely make a wonderful companion dog.

PLEASE NOTE: Dreyfus needs a home with a fenced yard and NO children under the age of 14 years old.


To date we've spent $180.50 on Dreyfus's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.
Please donate!

I am a little princess
Florida
Dusty Rose

MEET DUSTY ROSE. Dusty Rose is a very sweet little yorkie puppy who is only 14 months old and weighs 9 lbs. This little princess is being fostered in Vero Beach, FL. Dusty Rose must be adopted within the state of Florida. Unfortunately we cannot make any exceptions.

THANK YOU TO DUSTY ROSE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Laura Lewis

INITIAL BIO 03/13/2020: Dusty Rose just arrived at her foster home today. This little girlie has already been in two homes through no fault of her own. She was surrendered to UYR due to house-training issues. Puppies need consistency and being allowed to go out often so that they will learn where it is and is not appropriate to do their business, and both of her homes were unable to provide this consistence due to work schedules.

Dusty Rose loves all people, kitty cats and other dogs. She would love to have a doggie companion in her forever home close to her age for a playmate. Puppies love to play! She is a smart little girlie and walks well on a leash and is also crate-trained. Dusty is a true princess who loves to wear doggie clothes and bows in her hair. Oh, and she likes to lie her little head on a pillow when she sleeps, preferably in the human bed. PLEASE NOTE! Dusty Rose has proven to be an escape artist, and for this reason, her adoptive family must have a fenced-in yard.

Dusty Rose will see the vet tomorrow for a well-doggie check, and also be updated on her vaccinations. Dusty will settle into her foster home for a few weeks while she is learning proper puppy protocol in going potty in appropriate places. She will need to be spayed and will then be ready to go to her forever home. Stay tuned!


To date we've spent $460.12 on Dusty Rose's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

I a feeling better after my B-I-G surgery

I am cute - and very sweet, too.
Florida
Dylan

Meet Dylan. Little Dylan is 10 years old and weighs about 6-1/2 pounds. Dylan is being fostered in Dunedin, FL. Dylan must be adopted within the state of Florida. Unfortunately, we cannot make any exceptions.

THANK YOU TO DYLAN'S RESCUE ANGELS!

UPDATED BIO 03/20/2020: Dylan here! I am feeling so, so much better now and thought I would tell you what is going on. After recovering from my very delicate surgery, and receiving so much love and caring attention from both my foster mom and the vet's office (where I had to spend several days), I am ready to live life again. Foster mom says that I'll be ready to go to my forever home after 04/04/2020. Hooray! Oh, my foster mom said I should thank all of my fans who donated money towards my big surgery so THANK YOU!

My foster Mom says that I am a beautiful boy, both inside and out, and the vet techs just loved me too! Awww..... I like to sleep in (which seems to be a big deal for my current human), and will also sleep through the night. I am adorably toothless, but that doesn't inhibit my appetite at all!

Although usually pretty quiet, if I am hungry or want attention, I am able to find my voice. I will also let foster mom know when I need to go outside and do my business. I still lift my leg a little in the house, but since being neutered, that has diminished A LOT, which makes my foster mom very happy. She is working with me to be fully house-trained and I think I am getting the message.

I love to be near my human and I guess after not getting much in the way of love for all those years, I like how love feels and want more. Can you blame me? Foster mom says that I get attached to one person and I think shes' right. I am fine with other dogs, but don't really need a playmate. I am good walking on my leash and am really the happiest being a loving little lap dog. I am told I am a sweet boy, and will make a quiet family or single person a loving companion. Could that be you?

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Dylan's small size, he can only be adopted into an adult-only home.

UPDATED BIO 03/08/2020: Little Dylan was able to return to his foster home two days after his B-I-G surgery. He is doing really good even though he is still taking pain meds due to the delicate and serious nature of the surgery. The picture posted shows what a huge incision this tiny little fella had to have to repair the bilateral perianal hernia which he may have had for months and which was very painful and debilitating.

He will return to the vet on 03/09 to have the purse string suture removed from his bottom and will need to continue wearing a cone for another two weeks to ensure he doesnt lick the surgical site. Foster Mom reports that this little nugget is as sweet as ever even though hes gone through so much with dealing with this condition for such a long period of time, and undergoing a major surgery just days ago. Stay tuned as Dylan continues his recuperation process.

Donations are kindly requested and graciously accepted for this B-I-G and expensive surgery. Click on the Please Donate button below. If you prefer, you can go to our website @ www.unitedyorkierescue.org, click on Looking for Love, scroll down to Dylans bio (in Florida) and click on the Please Donate button below his bio. Prayers are also requested that Dylans recovery will be full and complete.

UPDATE ON DYLAN'S SURGERY 03/05/2020: Dylan had a great night after his B-I-G surgery yesterday hooray! He slept well, is eating and even had a good bowel movement, which is super great news given the nature of his surgery. He will possibly go home tomorrow with a stool softener and pain meds, but will need to return to see the surgeon next week to have some of the sutures removed to make him more comfortable. Donations are kindly requested and graciously accepted for this B-I-G and expensive surgery. Click on the Please Donate button below. Prayers are also requested that Dylan's recovery will be full and complete.

03/04/2020 - UPDATE ON DYLAN'S SURGERY @ 3:000pm!!! Dylan is out of surgery and is stable. Surgery appears to be successful, although due to the delicate nature of the surgery, there could potentially be complications with a prolapse in the next few days. We are hopeful that the healing will continue and that he will be back home and in his foster moms arms in a few days. Donations are kindly requested and graciously accepted for this B-I-G and expensive surgery. Click on the Please Donate button below. Prayers are also requested that Dylan's recovery will be full and complete.

UPDATED BIO 03/04/2020: Sweet Dylan has had a not-so-happy past he was picked up by animal control and even though they were able to contact his owners who said they would pick him up, they never showed up. Why, you may ask? Because they knew that Dylan had a life-threatening medical condition, and instead of reaching out to their vet or a rescue group, they dumped poor Dylan in the street to fend for himself. When United Yorkie Rescue was contacted by the shelter, we knew we had to save this beautiful little boy.

Dylan is a beautiful boy both inside and out. He loves and craves affection and will bark to be put on your lap and held and snuggled. He eats well, sleeps through the night and has learned to alert his foster mom when he needs to go outside and do his business. Dylan has no problem snuggling up in his crate which is his safe place for now. However, he craves the attention of his humans and would love to be someones special Velcro boy.

Dylan is currently wearing a belly band since he was unaltered and marking everywhere. He had kennel cough when he was rescued and with medications, his cough and sneezing have subsided and he is feeling better. He also had bilateral ear infections, and that is also clearing up with medications. Dylan also is malnourished and should gain a little more weight to be healthy. He will surely be a sweet little lap dog for a quiet adult family.

If having all that isn't bad enough - there is more - and it is so sad and the worst of all. Dylan has a condition called bilateral perianal hernia. This is a condition that is not only dangerous in that it could have ruptured and likely ended Dylans life, but must have caused poor Dylan a lot of pain and misery for a l-o-n-g time. The surgeon that saw Dylan on an emergency basis feels that this little fella has suffered with this condition for quite a while and it appears that his former owners just didnt care. Poor Dylan was so impacted with fecal matter that he could barely pass it and imagine how much discomfort, suffering and distress he must have endured potentially for months or maybe even a year. This is a condition most typical of intact middle-aged to older male dogs. It happens when a weakness in the muscles that make up the pelvic floor allow some of the pelvic contents to poke through and protrude into the perineal area (between the anus and scrotum). Dogs with perineal hernias will demonstrate a swelling adjacent to the rectum, coupled with signs of constipation difficulty having a bowel movement, lethargy and difficulty urinating. This poor little fella has most likely had this condition for a while and has been very uncomfortable and in pain.

Dylan will be having the complicated and delicate surgery to correct this condition today by a specialist and it is expected to take two hours. The surgery is aimed at repairing the pelvic diaphragm and potentially suturing or tacking the colon and the bladder to the abdominal wall to help prevent recurrence and colon or bladder entrapment. He will also be neutered at this time to hopefully prevent this condition from recurring in the future. Dylan will require at least 2-3 days of hospitalization following his surgery.

Dylans surgery will cost around $3,000, so UYR is reaching out to our donor angels so that this precious little boy can continue to get the best care and aftercare possible. The surgery to correct this condition was not an option, but was desperately needed to correct this condition and UYR is committed to making sure Dylan receives everything he needs during the recuperative period. This is a huge expense and any amount of donation is appreciated. Dylan will have an 8-10 week recovery in his foster home where he will receive lots of loving care and his foster mom will make sure he has everything that makes him happy.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Dylans small size, he can only be adopted into an adult-only home.

Initial bio 2/23/20. Meet little Dylan. This poor fellow was picked up as a stray on Tuesday. His possible owner was contacted by the shelter. They were told they had until 5:00PM on Saturday to come get him. If they didn't come, he would go to a rescue. His owners never came. It is possible they knew he needed surgery. It was very obvious that there was something wrong on his hind end. They chose to let him go to a rescue. Today he became a United Yorkie Rescue dog. It is very likely that Dylan will need surgery for a bilateral perianal hernia. This is a condition most typical of intact middle-aged to older male dogs. It happens when a weakness in the muscles that make up the pelvic floor allow some of the pelvic contents to poke through and protrude into the perineal area (between the anus and scrotum) Dylan will be taken to the vet very soon and scheduled for surgery as quickly as possible. Dylan also has a loose stool, but that is not uncommon for a dog who spent 5 days in the shelter eating whatever food was put down in front of him. He has already been started on meds for that.

Dylan will need a neuter. This fellow is now sporting a belly band. He is so busy marking everything he can. He is fine marking all over the fenced backyard, but he gets a nice belly band on while the house. Hopefully after his neuter this will lessen quite a bit.

Dylan seems to be a very sweet dog. He let his foster mom pick him up with no problem. She was able to easily put a harness and a belly band on him. He is friendly and fine with the other dogs in the home. He was quiet in the car and slept in the carrier. He seems to want to be around his people as much as he can.

Dylan will be getting a full physical at the vet. He will have blood work done, heartworm and fecal checks, and get scheduled for his surgery. After Dylan's vet visit, we will know so much more about him. All we can say right now if that as much as we can tell this sweet boy will make a great companion for the right person.

Dylan's surgery is likely to be expensive. If your heart is speaking to you about helping little Dylan please consider donating to United Yorkie Rescue to help us pay for this expensive and lifesaving surgery for this special little fellow. He needs us all, he has no one else.


To date we've spent $3326.13 on Dylan's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $2140.19 in donations.

I am pretty - oh so pretty!

Her name was Lola - she was a show girl ......
Florida
Lola

MEET LOLA. Lola is a very sweet little yorkie who is 7 years old and only weighs 7 lbs. This little princess is being fostered in Vero Beach, FL. Lola must be adopted within the state of Florida. Unfortunately we cannot make any exceptions.

UPDATED BIO 03/25/2020: Lola has been in her foster home for only two days, but has settled in very nicely. Lola was very sadly surrendered by her loving family that has had her since she was 9 weeks old since several family members had become highly allergic to her. They reached out to UYR and we were happy that they did.

Lola is a very sweet and loving little love bug. She is a happy little girlie who freely gives kisses. She loves to sleep in her humans bed with her head on the pillow no less lol! Lola is also very smart and is house-trained she will go to the door when she wants to go out. Lola gets very stressed and has anxiety when she is crated; for this reason, she cannot go into a home where she will be crated. She loves lying by her humans on the sofa and can cuddle for hours.

Lola gets along with the two little resident female yorkies and she has also been exposed to kitty cats. She walks well on her leash, but will bolt and run like the wind if she is not on the leash, so this must always be strictly observed. She is very curious about the sounds of the birds and geckos. She was previously in the home with a 12 year old, but due to her small size, she cannot be placed into a home with children under the age of 12.

I had a spa day - I am a pretty girlie.

Before grooming. Still a cutie huh?
Florida
Maui

Meet Maui. Maui is a sweet 8.3-year-old Yorkie girl. She is 10 pounds. Maui is being fostered in Orlando, FL. Maui must be adopted within the state of Florida. Unfortunately we cannot make any exceptions.

UPDATED BIO 02/21/2020: Maui was sadly surrendered by her family to the shelter when they could no longer take care of her. She has some medical issues that were immediately addressed by the shelter. Please read what Maui had to say today:

Hi Maui here. I saw the doctor a few days ago, and I'm already so much better! I had a really bad upset tummy, but foster mom thinks it was probably because I wasn't being given a consistent healthy diet when I was in the shelter. But now I'm getting good food, and enjoying being in a loving home with my foster mom and Laci, the other dog. Theres a kitty cat here, too, and I get along with her too.

It's all good news - my skin infection that I had when I arrived at the shelter is just about cleared up, and I'm almost finished with my meds for that. The vet checked my blood (and a few other things), and it turns out I'm pretty healthy after all! Hooray for me!

I'm pretty energetic, and I love being outside and going for walks. BONUS! I am house-trained - aren't I a smart princess? I'm very comfortable with all people and other dogs and kitty cats but I like dogs my size since the larger ones may scare me. I've had my dental done, and I have about 5 teeth left, but that doesn't slow me down from eating at all. I had a great spa day since Ive been at foster moms home, and I think I'm so much prettier now! What do you think? I will see the doctor again in a week just to be sure I'm ready to go to my new home by March 2nd. I will love you and give you all the snuggles and kisses you want!

Initial bio 2-17-20 Maui was sadly surrendered by her family to the shelter when they could no longer take care of her. She has some medical issues that will be addressed, though the shelter started treating her. She had a large mammary tumor removed, and the pathology showed no cancer. She was spayed, vaccinated, and had a dental. Maui is currently on antibiotics for a skin infection. She is having some diarrhea which is most likely from the shelter diet of whatever they currently had donated to them. Her foster mom is giving her medication for that and hopefully with good food and the meds it will be cleared up quickly. Maui will see the vet tomorrow, February 18th, and we will know a lot more.

Her foster mom said Maui is already settling in and has made herself at home on the couch next to her. She knows her foster home is a much better and quieter place than the shelter. Maui is doing fine with her foster fur brother and getting to know the resident cat. We were told that Maui is house trained and her foster mom said that she has already learned to go to the front door when she needs to go out and do her business.

Come back soon and get to know Maui with us.

Princess

MEET PRINCESS. Princess is an adorable little 9 year old yorkie who weighs 7 lbs. Princess is being fostered in Miami, FL. Princess must be adopted within the state of Florida. Unfortunately we cannot make any exceptions.

THANK YOU TO PRINCESS' RESCUE ANGELS!

Stefan Alderding, Christine Flaherty, Donna Williams, Lisa HackeBeloskur, Alexa Socha, Ellen Chokreff, Angelo Cuva, Denise Garrett, Kristi Hedberg, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Amy Schutz, Karry Rogers, Holly Keller, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Cora Peterson, Yakelin Queija, Suzan Robison, Dale Chambers, Yakelin Queija, Yakelin Queija, Barbara Burgess, Wendy Fuhrmaneck

THANK YOU TO PRINCESS' FACEBOOK DONORS!

Alexa Socha Rowan, Theresa McDivitt, Jill Landers

UPDATED BIO 02/21/2020: It was discovered today that Princess has an ear infection and is on medication for that. Also discovered were two very small mammary tumors which need to be removed, and at the same time, a dental will be done. It will be approximately 4-6 weeks before she will be able to be adopted. This is an unexpected delay, but as always with United Yorkie Rescue, we ensure that our dogs are as healthy as possible prior to going to their forever home.

Please read Princess updated bio below to learn what a precious little girlie she is..if Princess story has captivated your attention and moved your heart, please consider making a donation toward her upcoming surgeries so that we can continue to help other little yorkies just like Princess to have a healthier and happier life. Click the Donate button below to make a donation. As always, we are always so grateful and thankful for our generous donors.

UPDATED BIO 02/15/2020: Little Princess' life has completely turned around since she arrived in UYR 2-1/2 months ago. She is in perfect health, eating well and has fully adjusted to her foster home. Princess is not fond of walking on a leash, and she prefers shorter more frequent walks to enjoy the outdoors. She is, however, very active and enjoys running after lizards, birds and sniffing new surroundings when she is in a fenced-in yard, so it would be a bonus if her forever home had a fenced-in yard.

Princess likes to follow her human companion everywhere. This spoiled little girl is ready to go out for a car ride whenever she hears the sound of keys. Having said this, she tends to be a runner if she feels left behind. She always wants to be with her person. On a safer note, Princess wants to jump off the bed or the sofa to follow her foster mom. She is a petite little girl and needs to be put down on the floor to avoid injuries - always.

One thing that had not changed is her love for humans and meeting new people. Oh, and the fact that she would prefer a quiet home with mellow folks who love to listen to light relaxing music. Hey, this little girlie has culture! Princess continues to be not so fond of other dogs when they try to socialize with her, so she needs to be an only dog in her adoptive home so that she can bask in all the attention. She loves cuddling in bed, belly rubs, interacting with her foster mom and playing with squeaky toys. Princess is a beautiful, gentle, happy little girl full of joy and love who is looking for that some lucky human(s) to share it with.

PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING:

- Due to Princess's small size, she can only be adopted into an adult-only home.

- Princess must be adopted within the State of Florida.

- A home with at least one stay-at-home parent would be optimum as she loves being with her person all the time.

- Princess needs to be the only dog in her adoptive home.

UPDATED BIO 01/16/2020: Great news keeps coming for Princess. She saw the vet yesterday and received her updated vaccinations and she is doing really well and is ready for her forever home. Hooray!

Princess adjusted well to her foster home and will bond quickly to her forever home as well. She is a very sweet and happy little girl. BONUS! Princess is totally house-trained and has a very hearty appetite. She loves to play, go on short walks and definitely loves belly rubs, as well as bathing in the morning sun. Princess is quite cultured and enjoys listening to light relaxing music. She does not like loud sounds or voices. She is quite the classy little lady who will bring so much joy to her forever parents,

One thing that Princess does not like is other dogs, which appear to stress her out, so she really needs a home where she is the one and only dog she does okay with kitty cats however. Princess foster mom believes that she needs a home where there is at least one stay-at-home (or work-from-home) parent since she adores being cuddled and held a lot. She is always willing to give kisses and affection and will be such a loyal and loving companion to the right home.

PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING:

- Due to Princess's small size, she can only be adopted into an adult-only home with no other dogs.

- Princess must be adopted within the State of Florida.

UPDATED BIO 12/18/2019: More great news for Princess. She has had the stitches removed from her recent surgery - hooray! She still is on antibiotics for another week, and then repeat labs will be taken to make sure all is well and she will receive her vaccinations - and be ready for adoption into her furever home.

Princess appears to get along well with the kitty cat in the home and loves all the people she has met so far. Princess has let everyone know that she loves being around kind and loving humans, so a home with perhaps one stay-at-home parent would be perfect for her. Princess has also let her Foster Mom know that she wants to be the only dog in the home - in other words, she wants to be the doggie Princess of her home! Princess appears to be house-trained - bonus!

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Princess' small size, she can only be adopted into an adult-only home with no other dogs.

UPDATED BIO 12/08/2019: HEAR YE! HEAR YE! Great News! Princess has been released from the vet's offices and is recuperating nicely from her emergency surgery for pyometra. She still has a few medical issues to figure out, but she is happy and alert. She has settled into her Foster Mom's home and is eating and drinking well. And she has no problem gobbling up her food lol! Foster Mom says that she appears to be house-trained which is a BONUS - smart girlie!

Princess appears to get along well with the kitty cat in the home and loves all the people she has met so far. We don't know her history with other dogs, so there is more to find out about this little sweetie. Princess has let everyone know that she loves being around kind and loving humans, so a home with perhaps one stay-at-home parent would be perfect for her. She still has some healing to do before she is ready for adoption, so stay tuned!

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Princess' small size, she can only be adopted into an adult-only home.

UPDATED BIO 12/05/2019: Princess has only been in her foster home for one day when things changed quickly and dramatically. She saw the vet the day after she arrived and it was discovered that she had a raging infection. After taking several abdominal radiographs, it was discovered that Princess has pyometra. Pyometra is a very dangerous infection of her uterus which a life-threatening situation which required immediate emergency surgery. Pyometra can happen to female dogs and cats who have not been spayed. This is a veterinary emergency that carries a risk of sepsis and potential death.

Princess had her surgery the very next day and is in Day #2 of her recovery. She is doing well and has shown that she had a will to live - and love - and is recuperating nicely. She will not come home for a few more days, and her foster mom can't wait to have her back home. Life is finally getting better and better for this little princess. She is active and continues to eat and drink well. She has shown that she has true grit and the will to live in spite of her recent sad circumstances.

Princess' emergency surgery is expected to be between $2,000 - $2,500. If you have been moved by Princess' story and her current medical crisis, please consider making a donation to help cover the costs of her surgery. You can click on the "Please Donate" button below - thank you! If you are unable to donate, please share Princess' story far and wide, and prayers are always appreciated. Your donation will also allow United Yorkie Rescue to continue to pull little ones like Princess who are oh-so-deserving of another chance at a forever family and love.

INITIAL BIO 12/01/2019: Princess arrived today into United Yorkie Rescue's Foster Care Program. She was once someone's precious little yorkie girlie who was hopefully loved and cared for - until she became older. The family who once owned her gave her away the day before Thanksgiving because they no longer wanted to care for this sweet little girl. The kind person who they gave her to knew that Princess needed some immediate medical attention, grooming and care, so she contacted United Yorkie Rescue and, of course, we said we would take her.

Princess is such a precious little soul who loves to go for walks and readily gives kisses - her tail wags a lot - sweet!. She will likely need to be shaved down due to her extremely matted coat - she once had a topknot and probably a pretty little bow, but it was left in her hair way too long and now all she has is a knotted mess on top of her head. Her teeth appear to be really bad and she may likely lose a lot of them. Her nails are very overgrown and she appears to have been severely neglected for a very long time. But through all that, she has such a sweet and gentle personality. But everything for Princess changed today. She will be groomed and see the vet very soon so that we can determine what this little Princess needs. Please stay tuned to learn more about Princess.

If Princess' story has pulled at your heartstrings, please consider making a donation to UYR to cover her medical expenses. This will also allow United Yorkie Rescue to continue to pull little ones like Princess who are so-deserving of another chance at a forever family and love.

I am so happy to be out of the shelter
Florida
Skittles

Say hello to Skittles. She is a yorkie mix who is 5 years old and weighs 9 lbs. Skittles is being fostered in Orlando, FL. Skittles must be adopted within the state of Florida. Unfortunately we cannot make any exceptions.

INITIAL BIO 03/17/2020: Skittles has had a rough time of it the last few weeks. She arrived at the shelter matted and also with very itchy skin, a discharge from both eyes and a distended stomach. The shelter immediately started her on antibiotics. She received eye drops twice daily and they gave her an antibacterial bath. She also was circling in distress and it got worse the longer she stayed in the shelter. United Yorkie Rescue came to her rescue as soon as we found out about her. We knew she had to be rescued from the shelter.

Skittles found her voice and this is what she had to say today:

Hi everyone, I'm Skittles. My foster mom sprung me from a shelter yesterday. I'm so happy to be out of there. They were very nice to me there, but there weren't enough people to spend any time with me. I love to be in a warm lap, get lots of attention and told what a good girl I am.

I was spayed yesterday and I'm current on my vaccinations. I'm also microchipped. I'm a good eater. I love car rides and walks. I like playing with other dogs. I don't know if I like children or not. I'm not completely house-trained yet but my foster mom is working with me on that.

That's all Ive got to say for now. Skittles out.


To date we've spent $224.59 on Skittles's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Zariah

MEET ZARIAH. Zariah is a very sweet Morkie (maltese/yorkie mix) who is 6-1/2 years old and weighs 12 lbs. She is being fostered in Bradenton, FL. Zariah must be adopted within the state of Florida. Unfortunately we cannot make any exceptions.

THANK YOU TO ZARIAH'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Linda Dias

UPDATED BIO 03/19/2020: Zariah (lovingly called ZeZe) was a cherished companion animal until her owner's life situation suddenly changed, and due to this she could no longer care for Zariah and knew that she deserved a better life. ZeZe has been in her foster home for only a few days and is adjusting great. She is a very sweet and loving girl who loves cuddles and especially loves to be near foster mom at all times. She is taking a little bit longer to warm up to foster dad based on her past history with a man in the house, but she is making progress every single day. She has lots of energy outside and her foster parents will be working with her on leash training.

ZeZe saw the vet today and had her vaccinations brought up-to-date and routine lab work done. She will have a dental cleaning at the end of March. Foster mom will be working with Zariah on house-training, but she is a smart little girl, and with consistency, she should improve with time. She is on a strict schedule of being taken outside in her foster home, and she has already improved a lot and has rarely had an accident because of this. Please stay tuned for more information on Zariah.

INITIAL BIO 03/14/2020: Zariah has just arrived in her foster home today. She was a beloved companion animal until her owner's life situation suddenly changed, and due to this, she could no longer care for Zariah and knew that she deserved a better life. She reached out to United Yorkie Rescue and we were able to pick her up the same day.

Zariah is a very sweet girl who is getting settled into her foster home. She will need to see the vet for a well-doggie check and have her vaccinations brought up-to-date. Foster Mom will be working with Zariah on house-training, but she is a smart little girl, and with consistency in getting taken out, she should improve with time. Please stay tuned for more information on Zariah.

THANK YOU TO BENTLEY'S FACEBOOK DONORS!

Diane Pletcher Marvin, Priscilla Sukroo, Christine Kirchner, Theresa McDivitt, Lucy Hall, Ali Anna, Jill Landers, Bev Craven

Updated bio 2/2/20

Bentley came into rescue and was shortly taken to the vet for evaluation. The vet mentioned that she thought Bentley might have Cushings disease. We proceeded from there to do several expensive and time consuming tests to see if the symptoms that he was exhibiting were actually Cushings. Bentleys Vet actually went so far as to contact the endocrinologist directly to discuss his case. Unfortunately it has been determined that Bentley in fact does have Cushings disease. Cushings is not a curable disease but we have recognized Bentleys case early on and are hoping very much that his will be manageable with medication. He starts his new meds on Monday. Meanwhile he is just a totally charming little man who wants nothing more to be in your lap and follow you everywhere that you go. Because of his terrific consumption of water he does have to wear a belly band at all times. We are hoping that his medication may help to control this. Once we get Bentleys medication levels balanced we are hoping that he can be put up for adoption. If you have any questions regarding Bentley please contact his foster mom at equusjojo@aol.com. Because there is a great deal of cost involved in Bentleys testing, medication, and retesting we would appreciate any donations you could make To help support our precious Bentley.

Francie

Meet Francie a 8 year old, 8 pound Yorkie. She is being fostered in Suwanee,GA

THANK YOU TO FRANCIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta

Updated Bio 3/2/20

Francie came into rescue a couple of months ago with her sister Rhue. Their previous owner passed away and it was thought to all that the pair of doggies were bonded but it turns out they are not and both dogs have very different personalities and likes. So now United Yorkie Rescue is searching for each dog a new home of their very own to fit their needs.

Francie is not much of a Cuddle Bug , She wants attention but not so sure she wants to be in a lap. She does like to get under your feet while you are sitting and use them to scratch her back. Francie enjoys exploring the backyard and will come when called. She is a good car rider, is indifferent to kids and cats and appears to be almost completely house trained. Francie prefers to sleep in a corner of your bed but she is also crate trained. She's going to need a good patient home where they are willing to give her the time to feel safe and settle in.

Updated Bio 11/16/19

Francie and Rhue are looking for a new home. Their mom passed away and there was no one available to keep them together so they came into United Yorkie Rescue in hopes someone will fall in love with this pair and give them a new home. Francie just had her first dental ever in all of her 8 years and she lost 11 teeth. You'd think this might slow her down but she's still hungry and really enjoying her soft food for the next few days while she heals. She wants attention but not so sure she wants to be in a lap yet. She does like to get under your feet while you are sitting and use them to scratch her back. Francie enjoys exploring the backyard with her sister Rheu and will come when called. She must be walked with a harness and not with a lead attached to her collar because it makes her choke. She is a good car rider, is indifferent to kids and cats and appears to be almost completely house trained. Francie prefers to sleep in a corner of your bed but she is also crate trained. She's going to need a good patient home where they are willing to give her the time to feel safe and settle in. Any questions please email foster mom at jennifer@unitedyorkierescue.org

THANK YOU TO RHUE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Updated Bio 3/2/20

Rhue came into rescue a couple of months ago with her sister Francie. Their previous owner passed away and it was thought to all that the pair of doggies were bonded but it turns out they are not and both dogs have very different personalities and likes. So now United Yorkie Rescue is searching for each dog a new home of their very own to fit their needs.

Rheu is the youngest 10 year old you're likely to meet. She likes to run and explore though she is not quite sure exactly how to play she knows she wants to. Rheu wants to be where you are. She is a shadow but has an independent side too. She is a pleasant companion and loves belly scratches especially when you get down to her level and get serious about giving her the massage and scratches that she enjoys so much. Rheu is supposed to be a cockapoo but really looks like she's more Cocker than Poodle. She doesn't shed much, is almost completely house trained, comes when called but needs to be taught some leash manners. Rheu loves cats and kids! Rheu likes to sleep with her owner but is crate trained. There's still some harmless puppy mischief in this wonderful old dog.

Bella
Illinois
Bella IL

Meet Bella, a sweet 10 year old, 11 pound Yorkie girl being fostered in Minooka, IL.

THANK YOU TO BELLA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Kandice Pace

Update 3/12/20: Bella is settling into her foster home quite nicely. She is a little unsure of all the changes that have been thrust upon her, but is a very sweet little girl and enjoys being petted. Bella is eating well and although she has had a few accidents, she also seems to know what to do when she goes outside, so her foster mom thinks she just needs a little time to adjust to her new surroundings and routine. She does not seem to understand quite yet why she is in this new place, and has not interacted much with the other dogs in the house, preferring to stay to herself. She is starting to follow her foster mom around the house a little bit. Bella is crate trained and seems to feel very safe sleeping in her crate at night next to her foster mom's bed. She sleeps through the night without a peep.

Bella went for her initial vet visit/evaluation and is a tiny bit overweight. The vet also ran some blood work, a thyroid test and performed a urinalysis and has determined that Bella has the beginning stages of renal disease. They are very optimistic that this can be managed with a prescription diet and medication. Because of this, Bella would do best in a home where someone is home most of the time. She also has a bit of a limp, and we are not quite sure of the cause. The vet thinks it could just be arthritis, and is going to put her on a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory to see if that helps. She is up-to-date on her vaccinations and is micro-chipped.

Initial Bio: 3/7/2020 - Bella is a 10-year-old, 11-1/2 lb. Yorkie. She arrived at her foster home this afternoon and is settling in. Bella came to us because sadly, her owner had to move rather suddenly due to being relocated for her job. Please check back for more information on Bella as we get to know her better.

Marley
Iowa
Marley IA

Eleven year old Marley is a sweet yorkie boy who was used as a breeder and came to UYR when his owner passed away. He is being fostered near Bettendorf, IA.

THANK YOU TO MARLEY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sunghee Sohn, Irene and Peter Havas in memory of darling Happy

UPDATE BIO. 02/26/20 Marley has been at my house for close to a month and is starting to come out of his shell. I currently have one female Yorkie named Gracie and five cats. He does great with cats and even lets them snuggle next to him. In the beginning he was unsure about making physical contact with the cats, but now he regularly interacts with them. He looks to Gracie to figure out new situations from walks to toys to deciding if he should bark at something.

When we started going on walks he stayed underfoot but now he is walking out more confidently with Gracie. When you take him out to potty you have to make sure he goes, otherwise when you come inside, he will have an accident. During the day while I work, they are gated in the kitchen. I have a porch potty for them to use and his accidents are becoming less frequent. I have added a cone to the potty to help with “target practice.” After being a breeding dog for so long, he still likes to mark things, and I am working with him daily to break that habit. You have to be gentle when correcting him as he is still learning love and affection. He likes to sit on my lap when I play fetch with Gracie or mimics her behavior, as he is still learning how to play with toys.

Marley has also found his voice… even when he doesn’t know why he is barking..lol. He is making great progress on learning what a dog does besides being a breeder, and I enjoy watching him explore and learn new things. Marley loves meeting new people and always wags his tail and says hi. He does not like to be in a crate as it causes him a lot of anxiety and does much better gated in a small area where he can still interact with the other animals. Marley is a wonderful lap dog and cuddles with me all night long.

Update 1/30/20: Marley is a 10-year-old Yorkie that had been used as a breeder and came to UYR when his owner passed away. He doesn't quite know yet what to do with his new found freedom, and is learning to trust people. He is a very good eater and enjoys an occasional treat! Marley is pretty curious and follows his foster mom around, watching everything that goes on around him. He loves nothing more than to lay on your lap in the evening and wind down from the day's adventures. He is learning to trust humans and is working on housetraining - and does just fine in a crate. He just went for a bath and haircut and seems to know that he looks really handsome! The groomer said he did great - even with the nail trim!

Marley will do best either as an only dog, or with one other female dog, and in a home where someone is home most of the time. With a little TLC and patience, Marley is going to make someone a great little buddy!

THANK YOU TO MILLIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

John Chambers

Update 3/23/20: Hi everyone, I am sending out a update. All of my lab test were normal. I am a healthy girl. I am scheduled to have my teeth cleaned on Wednesday, unless my Veterinarian closes down for this icky virus going around. I hope to get this done, but otherwise I will get to know my foster Mommy better. So she can find the right home for me. Stay safe everyone.

Initial Bio 3/17/20: Hi everyone, my name is Millie! I am a 5yr old, 4.5lb little lady. I have been surrendered through no fault of my own. I came from a breeder when I couldn't have anymore puppies. They re-homed me. I spent a year with a good family but it was just to busy there for me. I was really scared. I had a 2 yr old human brother who was very active. This made me nervous and scared. I will require a quiet home. I am timid, this may change the longer that I am in a more normal environment. I am working on leash training. I am sort of house trained, so I am working on that to. I love to cuddle. I sleep really good with my Foster Mom and my new fur friends in bed. I get along with other dogs. I do prefer to have only one other fur friend in the home. I have been to the vet, I had some blood drawn to make sure I am healthy. But the Vet thinks I looks great.

Marty McFly

Marty is a 13-pound,12-year-old Senior Yorkie male being fostered near Elizabethtown, KY

THANK YOU TO MARTY MCFLY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Wendy Fuhrmaneck

Updated Bio 3/16/20

Marty was found wandering the streets, but he is a super sweet fellow. He loves to cuddle and loves to walk. He adores people and enjoys being part of the family. He does appear to be somewhat potty-trained. So far the only accidents have occurred when foster parents are gone a bit too long. He will wonder over to the door or bark to let you know he needs to go potty. Marty will be going to the groomer's in about two weeks to remove the last of the nasty matting he suffered from as a result of wandering days on the streets.

He was taken to the doctor for a dental--only lost one tooth--and a lipoma removal. The stitches came out today, much to Marty's relief. He will be on a powder antibiotic for about two weeks as the stitches were a bit raw. On the initial blood work, the doctor noticed that his liver levels were slightly elevated. The vet wanted to see Marty in a month to double-check the liver level. If the level remains the same, there is no worry; however, if the level number goes up, then we will have to consider treatment options. We will be going back in about two weeks.

Marty is a mellow fellow who just wants to be loved forever. He would be a wonderful addition to a loving family. Please email Foster mom with questions at mrspak1990@gmail.com

Marty McFly just arrived from the shelter... He appears to be very loving and in good health. Please stay tuned as we get to know Marty and we will let you know all about him.

Ashley Cagle, Patrick Cagle, Angie Cagle, Anne Broadfoot, Terri Horton Moore, Celeste Bichey

UPDATE Bio: 09/11/19. Lily is the tiniest three pound little girl with a really big health issue. Lily has PLE, Protein Losing Enteropathy. She came cross country to United Yorkie Rescue because her foster mom has experience with the disease. Recommended for euthanasia last January, it's been nine months and she's still with us.

Lily requires periodic vet checks and a rather expensive diet and supplement program. Combined, she's avoiding the worst symptoms of the disease that will eventually lead to the end of her life. With careful attention, Lily may live a few years and that's our goal.

Please consider donating to Lily's vet bills. The blood tests tell us how to proceed and keep her comfortable

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


To date we've spent $1765.81 on Lily WV's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1125.00 in donations.

UUPDATE BIO: 09/11/19. Merry, the tiny three pound senior found collapsed on the streets of Brooklyn last December, is still with us. After spending months building up her strength, she had three surgeries. She had multiple mammary tumors removed, a spay, and her last teeth removed.

Fifteen years old Merry is doing well but cannot seem to gain weight. She gets a very good diet and it seems to keep her going. Foster mom cooks for her and gives her Manuka honey and golden paste to heal her tiny body. Soon she will return to the vet to see if her tumors came back.

Please consider donating to sweet little Merry. Her surgeries were costly and she needs a recheck.

Update 4/1/19: Sweet tiny 14 year old Merry really needs our help. She had three surgeries today and her bill is over $1100. Little four pound Merry was found in bitter cold December, collapsed on the streets of Brooklyn, starved, unable to walk. Merry came to us still unable to walk. Her strength was slowly built until she could withstand three serious surgeries. She had a mammary tumor, a spay was needed to prevent more tumors, and her last two teeth were causing pain. Finally in April, she was able to get the care she needed after rebuilding her strength. Merry was quite a risk for surgery but there was no choice. The mammary tumor was growing. Merry sailed right through the surgeries and came home looking for her dinner. She has two pain meds and she is going to be watched closely. Please consider donating to help with this bill. Without our donors, Merry could not have been given the care she so desperately needed.

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 $1707.32 on Merry's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1675.00 in donations.
Please donate!

Bunky

Bunky is a estimated 8 year old Yorkie boy who weighs 9 pounds and is being fostered near Clarksville, TN.

THANK YOU TO BUNKY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Irene and Peter Havas in memory of darling Happy, DeAnn Deutsch, Tom Pazik, Jennifer Bullington, Julie Christy, Irene and Peter Havas in memory of darling Happy

03/05/2020

Bunky is estimated 8 yrs old who weighs 9lbs. He is the sweetest baby you could ever meet. He may have add a rough beginning in life living on the streets... but he has settled in well and loves sleeping with you and being with his person 100% of the time... He is definately a spoiled baby... His seizures have been a challenge... he is now taking 2 medications for his seizures and we have been seizure free for 1 month praying things will continue. He also takes an allergy medication which has helped him greatly... He no longer scratches all the time. If you think you would like to have a furry friend by your side constantly he would be a great fit... He would do best with someone who is retired and has lots of time to spend with him...

01/09/2020

Bunky is the sweetest boy... We had to go back to the dogtor this week for his ears... they are infected again and he is still very uncomfortable scratching all the time.... the dogtor thinks the ear infections and scratching are from environmental allergies, so we have decided to start him on Apoquel to help with his allergies. He has also had his first breakthrough seizure since starting his medicine. He had one last night around 9:30pm and again this morning around 4:00am. FM has called the doctor to see if we need to make any adjustments to his medications. Bunky loves to be with his person all the time... If you leave him he will sit and wait for you watching the door until your return. FM mom feels Bunky would do best with someone who is able to be home with him the majority of the time... so either a work from home person or retired. He gets along with fur brothers and sisters but his choice is to stay by his person. Bunky is house trained. He will have to be take medication for seizures and allergies for the rest of his life. If you think you would be a good fit for Bunky please submit an application.

12/02/2019

Update on Bunky... He came home on Sunday from Blue Pearl on medication to hopefully prevent his seizures. At this time he has been seizure free for 48 hrs. We are so excited he seems to be feeling better too. Today Bunky went to the dogtor to get all of his yearly vaccines. He was such a good boy. They also removed his stitches that were still in place from when he lost his eye. We have no idea how long those stitches were there but they are gone now thank goodness. He also has a double ear infection and has been given medication to get this cleared up as well. He is doing so good. He does seem to be housetrained, he will go to the door and circle when he wants to go outside. He loves to be held all the time. We are currently working on teaching him that human food or trash are not what he is supposed to eat. Living on the streets of course he ate whatever was available so it will take him some time to understand that he will get regular meals. He will need to have a recheck of his ears in a month to make sure they have cleared up. Foster mom feels that Bunky would do best in a home with no small children and someone who works from home or has lots of time to spend with him. He doesn't like to be left alone. He rides great in the car. If you think you would be a good fit for Bunky please complete an application.

11/30/19

Bunky just arrived while in route to his foster home Bunky suffered 2 seizures. So he is currently at Blue Pearl for evaluation. Bunky is an owner surrender. He has lived a rough life he is missing an eye and we do not know how this occurred. He has also had little to no vet care. He was living on the streets with a homeless person for years. Bunky would wander the streets and the homeless man would lose him and beg people to help find Bunky. Recently a local family reached out to try and assist the homeless man and his dog. After helping the homeless man he decided to ask the family to take his dog so that he would be safe. This family reached out to UYR for assistances. We don't know much about Bunky at this point except that he needs our help. If you can please donate to his care so that we can get him stabilized. Stay tuned for updates


To date we've spent $1633.57 on Bunky's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $474.13 in donations.
Please donate!

Jasper Riley

Jasper Riley Is a 15 year old ( estimated ) Yorkie mix boy who weighs 9.8 pounds. He is being fostered near Ashland City, TN.

THANK YOU TO JASPER RILEY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Wendy Fuhrmaneck

Initial Bio 3/17/20: Meet Mr. Jasper Riley. He was a man of the streets for no telling how long till someone found him wandering and took him to a shelter. He was very dirty, matted, and had super long nails. He had horrible teeth and did not want anyone at all to touch his mouth because of the severe pain. He also suffers from bad skin irritations. Jasper Riley is Blind and mostly deaf. He may hear some high pitch sounds. The amazing thing is that the shelter he ended up in took care of all his bloodwork, shots, grooming and dental work (he lost 13 teeth) He is heart worm negative and has been treated for parasites already. He was neutered prior to coming to the shelter at some point in his life. The director of the shelter reached out to United Yorkie Rescue in hopes to find this Senior Fellow the best home to live out the rest of his days being spoiled and loved unconditionally. So far Foster Mom has noticed that he is the sweetest little dog ever!! He is a about 2-3 pounds underweight his bones stick out. With lots of love and care he will put on the weight he needs and Foster Mom will give him special baths to help his skin heal up and his hair will grow back where it is missing. Love and care can do wonders for these doggies. It takes teamwork between all. The Shelter who took care of all immediate needs, the foster home he will heal in and his forever home to love him for life. He will see his Dogtor next week for a recheck on his mouth and his skin. Stay tuned for updates. Any questions email foster mom.

Hey UYR fans Tobias here just wanting to give you a little update on how I have been doing. I have been thru so much and I am slow to trust people. I will let my foster family pet me I also paw at them if they stop petting me and I am not ready to stop getting loves, I will take treats from their hands and get very excited when they come home.. But still am not comfortable being picked up or be bothered while I am resting in my bed. It causes me to panic and then I start to squirm and growl. I have only 1 tooth in the front so thankfully I have never hurt anyone. Once I am put down I am fine again... I enjoy laying around relaxing and sleeping on my bed. I do love treats! I am a very good eater and I don't mind to share with my fur brothers and sisters. I am even nice to strangers when they come to visit I will check them out and let them pet me. They continue to be patient with me as I learn to trust humans again. If you think I might be a good fit in your home please put in an application for me... I do want to find my forever home... Just know I need lots of patience and understanding. As always any donations toward my care to help UYR would be greatly appreciated.

Tobias was in a shelter in CA and his time was up he was set to be euthanized, however UYR stepped in to save this scared little boy. He had is first plane ride with a foster from CA. He was not a fan of the plane ride in the beginning but did settle down some as time went on, he is now in TN staying with his new foster mom who is getting to know him. This little boy is scared therefore he reacts in a snippy manner at times. We are hopeful that once he learns to trust people that he will let his guard down so that he can receive the love he deserves. Please keep Tobias in your prayers. Any donations are appreciated. Tobias is not quite ready to go to his forever home but you can place your applications if you think you might be interested in once we feel he is ready to go to his forever home.

Zekie Ray Is a 14 year old ( estimated ) Yorkie boy who weighs 8 pounds. He is being fostered near Ashland City, TN.

THANK YOU TO ZEKIE RAY'S FACEBOOK DONORS!

Updated Bio 3/8/20

Zekie Ray has seen the Dogtor and the good news is that his bloodwork came back all good. He was treated for parasites and is diagnosed with dry eye syndrome and will need to be on the medication for this for life. He has luxating Patellas in both back legs and his front two legs stick out to his sides an but far. Dogtor said he was probably compensating for the pain in his back legs that caused this. He does have a heart murmur grade undetermined yet till he sees a specialist. He is in desperate need of a dental but we want to know the severity of the murmur before he has this procedure done. He also has hot spots that we are treating on his skin. He is getting baths with a special shampoo and is on antibiotics to help clear that up. Thank you to all who have donated to his care so far. Zekie Ray is a sweetheart who just wants love and he adores food. Please email Foster mom with any questions at Mandy @unitedyorkierescue.org

Initial bio 2/29/20

Zekie Ray was rescued by a concerned neighbor who noticed he was kept outside on a long leash for a long time in the cold weather and even in snow and ice. He had no fresh food or water, he had an extremely dirty crate to sleep in if he could get to it on the front porch. His leash was long but got easily tangled on the steps to keep him from getting the shelter he needed. He Barked constantly and was severely matted and the entire neighborhood noticed he needed care. She asked his former owner if she could have him and that she would find him a great home. They said the reason he was kept outside was that he was old and had an upset tummy all the time. The former owner gave the neighbor permission to have Zekie and to find him the best home ever. The neighbor kept him for awhile but she noticed he needed Vet Care and she has bigger dogs and wanted him to have the best care and couldnt find him a home on her own. She reached out to United Yorkie Rescue so he could get the care he desperately needs and to find him the perfect peaceful home to live out his Senior years in. So Far Foster Mom has noticed that he may have dry eye syndrome, he has arthritis , he has a couple of cysts that needs to be looked at, he needs to be updated on his shots and have bloodwork to see if he has any other health issues. He rides great in a car, loves soft beds, and is super sweet . He gets along great so far with other dogs. We will update again after he has seen the Dogtor. If you would like to donate to his care please click the PayPal button underneath.


To date we've spent $855.71 on Zekie Ray's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $590.00 in donations.

BIO UPDATE: 12/17/19. Almost 1yr ago, Feb to be exact, I rescued sweet United Yorkie Rescue Bunny from a puppy mill. Her journey has been long, and somewhat sad. After her vetting back then, biopsies of mammary tumors and a lymph node came back with metastatic cancer. We've been treating that with great results. Lately in preparation for adoption, we've been doing some tests and sadly at her checkup it was determined that Bunny has Cushings. Not only that, she has a sludgy gallbladder and her right kidney has shriveled up and is most certain it is not working.

How do I smile through all of this for her... by seeing what I saw this week. "My Abby", my Maltese is so wonderful with my rescue's, she teaches them so much. Abby picks out toys everyday and brings them and plays in front of Bunny daily. And this week Bunny grabbed her first toy and squeaked and tossed it and shook it. 12 yrs in a crate and she finally played with a toy!! Not only that, she finally learned what play was and has been loving playing with Abby, running through the house, rolling on their bed playing with Forever Ours Jasper... being a puppy after 12yrs, with cancer and all this other crap now, but living and loving her lil life!!

We will determine whether Bunny will be adopted or what's in the best interest of this angel who escaped hell. Whatever the future is, I thank God for allowing her to show me what love is. Please, know we have spent thousands of dollars on this lil princess and if your in a Christmas giving mode, please give to her care. Bunny at www.uyr.us, go to Looking for Love, scroll to Texas and to Bunny and click ther donate Button. Thank you, bless you and Merry Christmas!!

BIO UPDATE: 09/08/19. Bunny's last oncology appointment was absolutely amazing! Dr Jesse did a thorough followup visit on Bunny with xray's, blood work, ultrasound and some fine needle aspirations on a few areas of concern. I am happy to say that EVERYTHING, and I mean EVERYTHING, is just perfect with this baby girl. Her lymph node is normal size, her xrays are just remarkable, her blood work is in on point, her ultrasound showed no areas of concern and she looks amazing on the outside a well.

Bunny has been on a very inexpensive chemo pill that she takes daily. She has had absolutely zero side effects on this medication and it looks as if we are seeing such amazing results...thank you God!! Bunny came to us from such a house of horror and endured such a horrific life but to look at her now, you would never imagine her life has such a horrid past.

This sweet baby is just so full of love and and such a joy to the household. She loves to play with her fur siblings and LOVES belly rubs. She is beautiful in her golden coat with red tinted highlights. A far cry from the baby that had hardly any fur with sores and scaly skin. Her anatomy is all back into place and no longer a tangled mess of "what is that"? When you add LOVE, it is amazing what you see as the result.

Being a former mill baby, Bunny has the most incredible love to give as well. She thrives on a touch which she has found to be a feeling she cannot do without for too terribly long of a time, that and a soft cozy bed!! But of course at nighttime, its that big cozy bed that holds everyone she craves. Although this sweet angel has cancer because of her abuse and neglect from mammary tumors, Bunny is still highly adoptable. Although she has been given a name for something that MAY take her life, she still has so much life to live and give.

IF you are the PERFECT home for Bunny, please contact me at yorkiefostertx@gmail.com. You simply MUST be able to continue to add love, and make sure her life is full of sunshine, belly rubs and touch. Please, complete your application at www.uyr.us if you are that special one...you will be blessed more than you could ever bless her.

Update 7/1/19: United Yorkie Rescue Bunny has an oncology follow up appointment tomorrow! She is maybe 6 to 8yrs old, rescued from the puppy mill we shut down in Texas. She was one of the original Fortunate Four rescued. Bunny has metastatic cancer. We removed her mammary tumors, but sadly they were diagnosed as carcinoma and cancer has spread to her lymph nodes. She is just the most loving princess ever and we are trying to give her some time, which she sooo deserves! Please help us by donating to her care at www.uyr.us or you may also click the button attached. If you aren't able to donate at this time, please share as you never know who may be in a place to do so. Bless you and please keep sweet Bunny in your pray

Update 4/5/19: Bunny was seen by the oncologist and she says she looks amazing. Overall her x-rays look really good as far as she is concerned. She does have a very large heart, she's on Vetmedin for that and at present there is no need to add anything more. Her trachea looks a little more relaxed and does not have such a roller coaster look to it as well. Her bloodwork looks very good. Her lymph node is considerably smaller. Hard to say if this chemo med is the reason why, but she's doing very well. No need for recheck until another 3 months. Despite all that is wrong with her, she's just so incredibly sweet.

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

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

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

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

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

Thank you UYR family!!!

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

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

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

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

Chocolate
Texas
Chocolate aka Gizmo

Meet the Magnificent Chocolate! A 15 year old, 7.8 pound Yorkie boy who is being fostered in Pflugerville, TX. NO OUT OF STATE APPLICATIONS WILL BE CONSIDERED.

THANK YOU TO CHOCOLATE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Lynne Turner, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Lynne Turner, Donna Williams, JC Pham, Tammy McCall

Update 02/26/2020: This amazing boy is flourishing post surgeries, loving life and is fully ready to find his furever home. He enjoys snuggling, giving kisses & a nice warm bed in which to relax. Chocolate is very laid back and has the most gentle temperament. He prefers a quiet home, but is not bothered by noise, and is dog friendly. Chocolate would also like you to check out his new updated photos of cuteness overload!

Update 01/21/2020: Chocolate had three surgeries on 01/07/20 and did fantastic! He had a cystotomy, with a lot of bladder stones completely removed, two cysts removed from his left eye (non-cancerous) and a full dental cleaning with only one tooth extracted. Once we have the results back on the type of bladder stones they were, we will have a better idea of his diet going forward.

Chocolate's vet could not believe how amazing he did! He is making a full recovery now and will be available for adoption very soon! Stay tuned for this and updated photos!

Initial Bio 11-27-19: Chocolate joined UYR on Nov. 27 (Thanksgiving Eve), alongside his brother of 15 years, Ziggy. He began life in a loving home with his brother & spent many years there. Sadly, his owner became ill and unable to care for them both & then passed away. Both boys found themselves on hard times, neglected and ended up in a shelter. Those kind souls lent them a hand & got them into the loving arms of UYR so they could get back on their feet.

These days, Chocolate's eyesight isn't what it used to be, but he still loves to outside & has been eager to slowly check out his foster home. His hearing & smell is absolutely on point! He is currently working on getting his weight up after some lean times & just needs some love and a warm lap to curl up on. He is such a sweet boy and loves to just chill next to you.

Chocolate is currently dealing with some bladder stones right now that will soon be resolved with his new diet. Additionally, he is on soft food until his upcoming dental surgery & will need to stay on wet food going forward. Chocolate says he absolutely does not mind!

Chocolate currently has two small tumors on his upper and lower eyelids on his left eye due to neglect. These will shortly be addressed with surgery once he gets his weight up. Oh, and he is a polite boy. He is superbly potty trained and will only go outside. Even with all that he has gone through, not one accident!

Please stay tuned for more updates to come as this Dynamic Duo get back on track for their furever home!

Jasmine

Meet sweet little Jasmine who is 10 years old and weighs 4 lbs. This precious little girl is being fostered in TX.

THANK YOU TO JASMINE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Robert Davis, Lauren Radencic, Judith Gobeille, Karen Keaton, Dana Barao, Sue Ott, Wendy Henry, Cheryl Scrupski, Lauren Satterfield, Julie Christy, Irene and Peter Havas in memory of darling Happy

PUPDATE 01/08/2020 In the 2 weeks since her surrender Jasmine has been for her health check. Concern was raised over her distended tummy and a uterus infection was suspected. She was scheduled for surgery within couple of days. However she could not wait that long and that very evening she fell gravely ill and we had a 1am rush to the emergency ER for pyometra. 10 days later and she is bright and active with a great appetite. She still faces at least one more surgery to remove a lot of mammary tumors as well as a dental. It will probably be another 2 - 3 weeks before the Dogtor will consider doing this work and then she will need a few more weeks of recovery after that before she will be ready for her forever home. As you can image her medical bills are mounting up so if you could find it in your heart to make a donation toward her care she would be oh so grateful for your love and care.

As mentioned in her initial bio she was surrendered with Max with whom she had shared a home for 10 years. In observing them it is clear that they are very close and would prefer for them to be adopted together.

INITIAL BIO: 12/15/19. Jasmine has been with her foster parents for two days now, She is a tiny sweet 4lb bundle who looks at you with those big ol' eyes, she certainly does not look 10 years old!

She was very good during the car ride to her new foster home and has not refused any food so far! She walks very well on a leash and sleeps thru the night without any trouble. She is house-trained and happily goes outside to do her business. She is a very cuddly little maid, climbing onto any lap that happens to be there.

She and her brother Max came from a loving home, but the recent arrival a new baby made them very unsettled and the baby's mother could not cope with them and a baby.

She is scheduled to go the the Dogtor on Saturday to check out her health and see if there are any issues to be addressed before she is ready for her furever home.

Adoption Pending

Lucy Lulu

Lucy Lulu

Meet sweet Lucy Lulu, an adorable 4 year old 10 pound little girl who is being fostered in Georgetown, TX.

UPDATE BIO: 03/04/20. Lucy is a beautiful multicolor 5 yr old sweet girl. She loves car rides, loves loves a backyard to run and chase, snuggles next to you at night and is totally housebroken. This sweet girl would do best in a Furever home with a single mom or a retired couple. She comes from her owner who lived alone. Lucy isnt aggressive in any way. Doesnt growl, bite but is very hesitant to be held or picked up. It takes a lot of love and time for her to trust as she seems shy and has fear of new people and surroundings. She is learning to walk on a leash and is slowly getting used to her soft harness and now seems excited when she is putting it on. She does excellent with other dogs and cats. Watch for an updated bio soon after she has finished her vetting.

Initial Bio: 02/23/20. Lucy came to her foster family yesterday and words cant describe the sweetness this lil girl has. She is 4 yrs old weighing 10 Lbs (soon to be 7lbs). She will spending time adjusting with her foster family. Updates to follow when Ms Lucy has her vetting

Max
Texas
Max

Meet sweet Max, a estimated 10-11-year-old who weighs 8-9 lbs. This precious little guy is being fostered in TX.

THANK YOU TO MAX'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Robert Davis, Julie Christy

PUPDATE 01/08/2020 Max continues to recover from his surgery and is due to go for a check up in a couple of days. As mentioned in his initial bio he was surrendered with Jasmine with whom he had shared a home for 10 years. In observing them it is clear that they are very close and would prefer for them to be adopted together.

PUPDATE 01/04/2020. Max has been with his foster parents for nearly 12 days and has really shown himself to be a beautifully natured dog. He is very affectionate and loves company. He went for his medical on December 28th and was found to be in great condition, though needing to be neutered, a dental and chipped. He had this done on Monday 30th so started the New Year right. He only had 4 teeth left and sadly they had to remove these, but he has not found any problem in eating both kibble and canned food.

Although he is blind in one eye, he gets around just fine and the Dogtor told us the blind eye is just small and is causing him no issues at all. Once he has had his stitches removed he will go for a 'spa day' and looking for his furever home. We think he would do better in a home preferably with adults where he we will not be left for long periods of time. So if you can find it in your heart to give this sweet fella a home please click the link below and complete an adoption application for him - you won't be sorry!

INITIAL BIO: 12/25/19. Max has been with his foster parents for two days now, He has a very sweet disposition, and likes to cuddle up as close as he can. He is estimated to be around 10 - 11 years old and weighs in around 8 - 9LBs. It appears he only has sight in one eye and his former owners told us he was deaf, however he has no trouble hearing when it is meal times!

He was very good during the car ride to his new foster home and has not refused any food so far! He walks very well on a leash and gets very excited when he sees the harness and leash come out of the drawer. He is house-trained and happily goes outside to do his business, although he has indulged in a little marking, probably due to it being a new home and he has not yet been fixed.

He and his sister Jasmine came from a loving home, but the recent arrival a new baby made them very unsettled and the baby's mother could not cope with them and a baby.

He is scheduled to go the the Dogtor on Saturday to check out his health and see if there are any issues to be addressed before he is ready for his furever home.

8/7/19: Hi everyone, Pepper here! I'm am doing so good in my foster home. My eye that we thought we might have to take out has been healing great after some surgery by Dr. Sam! It's 85% healed. My diabetes is under control and I'm looking great. I'm scheduled to have a dental this week. Not really excited about that but... excited to have a sparkling mouth. My foster mom says I'm such a good girl. I love to go outside and do my business and just walk around in the sun. I get along with all my foster sisters and brother. Life is good now just can't wait to find my forever home.

07/12/19 INITIAL BIO. Hey everyone! My name is Pepper. I am a 12 year old female Yorkie with grey and silver Fur. I weigh about 8.8 lbs and just recently found out I am diabetic. I came to UYR after being taken to the shelter to be put down by my mom of 12 years. This was heartbreaking, thankfully someone at the shelter contacted UYR and said I had so much life still in me. They saved me!

Now I am in my new foster home with my foster family, getting use to my new life and changes with my diet and blood sugar. I wasn't feeling good and my foster mom took me to get checked. That is where it all started. I was in the emergency vet for 4 days. Thankfully I am a brand new puppy- feeling great and playing with my new foster siblings.

I get along great with older dogs and kids. My foster mom says I am the sweetest thing around. I have to get insulin shots every 12 hours which don't really bother me at all and eye drops for an ulcer that's healing. The part that is a bummer is I can't have a treat! Man....that's a big bummer. I would love to find my forever home with a family that will love me and give me snuggles for the rest of my life.

7/4/19 Pepper is our latest rescue in Texas...watch for her bio soon. She is very ill and is requiring emergency care.

Porkchop
Texas
Porkchop

Pork chop is a 10-year-old, 12 lb. boy being fostered in TX.

INITIAL BIO: 03/16/20. Porkchop is a very sweet 10yr old boy seeking a forever family to love and be loved by. Unfortunately he was a frequent visitor at his local animal shelter before his family finally surrendered him. Although he has probably been neglected much of his life he has not lost his sweet spirit nor his desire to love. He has only been in his foster home for a short time, but we can share that he is a very good boy. He gets along with his foster siblings and has done all of his business outside.

Porkchop would be the perfect companion for a someone looking for a special furbaby to hang out with, He moves a little slow but enjoys following his foster mom around the house. His hearing seems to be somewhat impaired but that doesn't stop him from being naturally curious. He has learned very quickly where to find what he needs. He loves to snuggle on the couch. Porkchop has had a good dental, and although he only got to keep a few teeth you would never know. His favorite two times of the day are breakfast and dinner.

If you would like to learn more about this beautiful boy please reach out to his foster mom at yorkielove0409@yahoo.com. You may also complete an adoption application on our website in the Looking for Love section.

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

THANK YOU TO TEDDY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Richard Salinas, Sandy Pagnotta, Lauren Radencic, Lauren Satterfield, Cheryl Scrupski, Wendy Henry, John Chambers, John Chambers

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

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

Max
Wisconsin
Max

Meet Max, a handsome little 9 week old, 2 lb Yorkie being foster in Madison, WI. Max wants a secure fenced in yard and must be adopted within a 50 mile radius of his foster home. NO OUT OF STATE ADOPTIONS WILL BE CONSIDERED DUE TO TRAVEL BAN.

THANK YOU TO MAX'S RESCUE ANGELS!

William Bergen, Amy Jeanty, Mary H., Mary H.

UPDATE 3-6-20: Max is recovering from his eye injury very well, basically back to his rambunctious self. While we are still accepting applications, Max will not be available for adoption until May 15th at which time he will be fully vaccinated.

INITIAL BIO - 03/01/20 -- Meet adorable little Max! For a short time Max lived in a home with bigger dogs and was unfortunately bitten by one. Thankfully his family contacted the rescue right away for help as they knew that keeping him in that environment was not safe. Max's foster mama immediately took him to the emergency vet to have his eye looked at and fortunately all looked good, no damage from the bite. He does have some swelling and a little pain that are being treated with ointment and pain medication.

So far Max is getting along with his foster fur-brother, although he is a rambunctious puppy and does tend to get on his brothers nerves. His injury does not seem to slow him down as he loves to play with his toys. Being just 9 weeks old he does like to nap a lot so we have play time, and nap time. He was training with potty pads at home so we are continuing that, so far so good, a few accidents. We are just starting to introduce a leash, he isn't too thrilled with it but follows his brother's lead.

Due to the negative interaction with the larger dog in his first home Max may not get along well with big dogs anymore. It would be best if he is in a home with only small dogs, under 12 lbs. Because he is a puppy it would also be good to be in a home that has someone around more often to continue his training.

Max has had puppy shots and will be seeing the regular vet for a wellness check and to set a schedule on when he should have follow up shots and be scheduled for neutering. Adoption prior to neutering and rabies shot may be considered with contingencies.

Adoption Pending

Nicki
Wisconsin
Nicki WI

Eleven year old Nikki spent her life as a breeder dog and came to UYR when her owner passed away. She is being fostered in Oak Creek, WI. ONLY APPLICANTS LOCATED WITHIN A 60 MILE RADIUS OF MILWAUKEE, WI. WILL BE CONSIDERED. NO OUT OF STATE APPLICANTS WILL BE CONSIDERED.

THANK YOU TO NICKI'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Valerie Chavis, Julie Christy

Update 2/8/20: Today Nicki was transferred to her new foster home in Wisconsin and she is doing very well...eating nicely, doing her business (mostly outside) and lounging on the sofa with her foster mom. Nicki is still very shy and will need time to work on her housetraining skills and socialization before she is ready for adoption. But we can say she is a very sweet little girl who we hope can find her perfect forever home with someone who is patient and loving.

Update 1/30/20: Nicki is an 11-year-old Yorkie that was being used as a breeder, and came to UYR when her owner passed away. Right now she is most comfortable in her crate or laying on a blanket on the couch. Nicki is is very timid and submissive. She is still trying to figure out what this new found freedom is all about. There are several dogs in her current foster home and she seems to tolerate them just fine.

Nicki is a good little eater, but she prefers to take her meals in her crate with the door shut. She is working on housebreaking and venturing out of her comfort zone - which is her crate and the couch at the moment. Nicki doesn't mind being petted, but doesn't quite know what to make of it just yet. She did go for a bath and haircut and was quite the hit with the groomer!

Nicki will do best in a quiet home with someone who is home most of the time. She has a very sweet demeanor and with a lot of TLC, patience and encouragement she will blossom into a fantastic little companion for someone.


To date we've spent $1486.42 on Nicki WI's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $60.00 in donations.

Whiskers
Wisconsin
Whiskers

Meet Whiskers, a precious 11 year old, 5 pound Yorkie boy being fostered near Madison, WI. He must be adopted within a 100 mile radius of his foster home. NO OUT OF STATE APPLICATIONS WILL BE CONSIDERED.

THANK YOU TO WHISKERS' RESCUE ANGELS!

Natalie Gross

Update 3/6/20: Hello everyone just a quick update on Whiskers as its been a couple weeks since weve had one. He is just as super snuggly as he was from day one. His favorite activity is just sitting next to you getting belly rubs and when that is impossible he loves to sleep the day away. I did take him for a walk the other day as the weather here in Wisconsin is improving and he wasnt quite sure what to make of it; he couldnt figure out why he wanted to go One Direction and I needed him to go the other direction. Needless to say after a little while he got to be a king and be carried for the rest of the walk. Lol. Regardless of the outcome he enjoyed some nice fresh air. And now that the snow is melting in my backyard he does like to just wander around and sniff the scents that have been left from the winter.

I would say Whiskers is 95% house trained. Upon awakening from his naps he will automatically walk towards the door to go outside and go and he does wake you up in the middle of the night if he needs to go. He does also use potty pads in the house. Bonus!

We have been dealing with some urine leakage when he sleeps. I took him to the vet yesterday to see what can be done to control this issue. They did a urinalysis on him and we are waiting for the results. He also has a bacterial infection on his belly and will be on an antibiotic for the next two weeks so if the urinalysis shows he does have an infection, the antibiotic that he is on will also be treating this. We have also started him on a bladder control medicine to hopefully correct any urine leakage that he has. In the meantime he wears a belly band at night when he sleeps

Good news is in February he had a senior blood panel done and everything looks really good . While Whiskers is not a pup that likes to play, he does enjoy the company of my two Yorkies. He loves to snuggle up against them. So another dog in the home would be nice.

If you have any questions about Whiskers please feel free to email the foster mom at quietcourt2@yahoo.com.

Update 2/3/20: So Whiskers has had a busy couple weeks. He has been diligently working on house training and is doing really well. I do watch him when he is up and about and when he needs to go potty he starts to pace by the door that we use to go outside so that is a huge improvement; he just doesnt know how to tell me yet that he needs to go out through the door I am very pleased with his progress.

This past weekend Whiskers went on an outing to my daughter's house 2 1/2 hours away and I must say he is a fabulous car rider. While he would prefer to sit in your lap he did do well in the back seat in his little bed with my two Yorkies. Whiskers proved to be quite the gracious guest as he minded his manners and quickly became friends with my daughter's two dogs. At one point 5 dogs were all snuggled together .

Today Whiskers had a vet appointment and he was updated on some vaccinations and had some blood work done. Everything looks fantastic. He does have an issue where he leaks a little urine at times but as far as we can tell it is not linked to any health concerns. It might be linked to being neutered late in life.

Being an older gent he spends most of his time sleeping and snuggling. If you would like a snuggling partner feel free to fill out an application on our site and any questions you may have please email the foster mom.

1/24/30 Initial Bio: Lets give Whiskers here a warm welcome! Whiskers came from Illinois and was used for breeding purposes. Luckily UYR was able to save him from a very poor situation along with 3 other Yorkies (Bo...in Iowa, Pumpkin...in Illinois and Molly....in Illinois).

Whiskers saw the vet today and the staff thought he was just the cutest pup ever. Everyone fell in love with him. He is being treated currently for a bladder infection and was updated on his some of his vaccinations. In a couple of weeks he will get the rest of his vaccinations.

Unfortunately as it is with most breeding dogs Whiskers is not house trained and we are working diligently on this and he has already shown some improvements. I have no doubt he will make huge strides when the weather warms up. Patience will be the key here now and in the future.

Whiskers would love a home with maybe a retired couple who would like nothing more than to have a lap warmer as he loves to snuggle. He doesnt play with toys so snuggling is his thing Due to his size he cannot go to a home with children under 13. No exceptions!

Any questions please feel free to email the foster mom! Quietcourt2@yahoo.com
