Mom says I'm the best foster ever!
Alabama
Albany

Albany is a sweet little girl weighing just 6 pounds. She is 9 years old and is being fostered in Vestavia Hills, AL

Albany must be adopted within 100 miles of her foster home in Vestavia Hills, AL.

Bio 9/15/22: Meet Albany!! Albany is such a sweet girl. Her foster parents consider her the easiest dog they have fostered. Albany likes short walks but is not much for playing in the yard. While she is not much for active play, she LOVES sitting on the porch and watching the world. She doesn't give the other dogs in her foster home much attention. She does not have a problem with other cats or dogs, but she also does not play with them. Albany would be fine as an only dog or would easily mesh in a family with existing pets.

She loves to be cuddled and carried around but also enjoys her own space too. Her foster parents say that she will often leave the room to rest in her own space. When Albany arrived in UYR care, she had dental disease and had to have a few teeth removed. At her recent vet appointment, she was considered healthy and happy.

Albany is not a barker. While she has had a few indoor potty accidents, Albany is house-trained. She does not demand attention from anyone and is easily content sitting beside her people. Albany has the most beautiful hair. She will stand perfectly still while her foster parents brush her hair. In fact, she enjoys getting her hair brushed.

Her foster parents have enjoyed their time with her. While they are sad to see her go they are excited that she will be living her best life with her forever family.


To date we've spent $684.55 on Albany's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

I am just the cutest 1.6 pounds ever!
Alabama
Heidi

Heidi is the littlest pup weighing just 1.9 pounds (up from my original 1.6 pounds). She is 4 months old and is being fostered in Vestavia Hills, AL.

Heidi is not ready for her forever home just yet. When she is, her adoptive home must be within 100 miles of her foster home. Due to her small size, she must also be in a home with only children over 14 years old.

THANK YOU TO HEIDI'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Penelope Brackett, Mark Messmore, Judy Hufford, Sue Riggs Howard Purdy, Mia Hernandez, Kay Williams Graves, Natasha Cruz, Janet Wannamaker, Tricia Pecora, Leslie Corbell

Initial Bio 9/14/22: Little Heidi came to United Yorkie Rescue as an Owner Surrender. At 3 weeks old she was in an accident with a larger Westie and suffered some brain swelling. Her owner rushed her to the vet and she received immediate medical care. Over the course of the last 3 months, she has shown improvements in her neurological functions, but still has a ways to go. Her owner felt like she didn't have the time to dedicate to her care so United Yorkie Rescue came to help.

Heidi is able to eat wet food and drink water. She is walking and trying to run. She is working on her stability and puppy play.

Since Heidi has just arrived at her foster home we don't really know much more about her at this time. Stay tuned as she grows and gets more comfortable in her environment.


To date we've spent $403.62 on Heidi's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $390 in donations.

Blue
California
Blue

Meet Blue, a sweet 8 year old, 6 pound Yorkie boy being fostered in southern California. Only southern CA applicants will be considered.

THANK YOU TO BLUE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Stephanie Morgan, Mariely Leon, Barbara Burgess, Mallary Forbes, Elba Short, Ken P. McEwan, Angie Cagle, Michele Thorpe Elba Short, Mary Haste

Update 9/21/22: Our sweet Blue is doing much better now after his refill on Prednisone. He is currently taking a small dosage everyday along with the occasional cough medicine. He still has coughing fits, but only a few times throughout the day. From waiting outside the bathroom door to whining for food every 6 a.m., Blue has gotten very accustomed to being loved and craves attention. We still find him hopping into laundry baskets and lounging around the house. We believe he will assimilate perfectly in any loving home because of how relaxed and affectionate he has become.

Update 8/9/22: Three months later and Blue is still the sweetest pup on this planet. We recently found him sleeping in one of our clothes baskets, much to our other yorkies delight, getting his own bed back. As for his Prednisone, we tried to taper it off but unfortunately it was unsuccessful. Our poor baby is currently diagnosed with lower respiratory disease. For now, we are praying that a change in medication might help because we believe he has also a collapsed trachea that is causing daily snorting and honking. Despite this, our strong pup continues to do great with lots of love and affection. We do hope that he will find a family that will be home most of day as since doesn't like to left at home alone. Thank you to all the UYR supporters that contributed his journey to better heath. With Sincere Thanks & Gratitude

Update 6/4/22: We decided that Blue needed another X-ray because his cough wasnt improving. Thankfully, after waiting countless hours, our vet confirmed that there is no problem with his trachea, but he still had some leftover inflammation. He is currently on mild steroids to correct his leftover cough. So far, after 2 weeks on it, his cough has happily subsided. We could tell he felt much better since we saw him run for the first time since arriving and wags his little tail fast whenever someone arrives home. We are monitoring him to see how he does once we ween off of his medication. On 5/24 he was neutered and had dental cleaning. His teeth are now sparkling white, and he has the brightest smile out of our dogs at home despite losing 7 teeth.

Blue is adjusting very well at his new foster home. He gets along with other dogs that are calm and mellow. He is definitely a lap dog once he feels secured and will put his paws on your legs when he wants to be cuddled. He loves his blankets and sometimes we find him sleeping in our clothes baskets. He is so attached already! He will need a forever home with someone that can take him everywhere since he does well in the car and does not like to be left alone. He doesn't squirm when being carried and is so tiny he can fit in a purse calmly. We can definitely see this little guy traveling the world!

Initial Bio 5/4/22: Blue came to us as a stray from Pasadena Humane Society and after a couple of wagging tails, he was already settled in. We fell in love with his calm and affectionate demeanor right away. However, we immediately noticed his severe coughing and loud exhales which the shelter thought was a collapsed trachea. Knowing this, we felt helpless hearing him cough and struggle to breathe throughout the night, the poor thing barely getting any sleep and continuing in the morning. When all hope seemed to be lost, our beloved vet informed us that Blue just had a cold, so he will be comfortable very soon after giving him the right medication. We are still waiting on some lab work, but this handsome little boy weighs 6 lbs and is suspected to be 8 years old. Despite his struggle, he never stopped trying to sit on our laps and ask for pets and food. He never wants to be alone, following us everywhere and whining when we leave the room. He gets along so well with all of the Yorkie friends we have and stays calm without a bark even during the most loud doggie commotions. Since he has only been with us for a couple of days, we are so excited to see how he will come out of his shell and be part of a family again.


To date we've spent $1192.05 on Blue 's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1180 in donations.

THANK YOU TO PIPER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sophie McGourty

Initial Bio 8/26/22: Piper is a wonderful, spirited little girl that is full of love and kisses. She is very healthy 11 months old, 12 pound and projects genuine kindness and beauty the moment you meet her. Piper came from a very loving family that brought her into the family late last year because the wanted a small dog. Over the past several months they have had to endure some medical challenges and havent been able to keep up with Pipers puppy energy. Although it was a very difficult decision, they wanted Piper to have Guardians that can provide her with the puppy training and active lifestyle she needs and contacted UYR for assistance.

Updates on Piper will be posted here as we get to know her and evaluate her needs.

Meet Tucker, a sweet 8 year old, 9 pound Yorkie boy being fostered in Tustin, CA. Only CA residents will be considered.

THANK YOU TO TUCKER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Rebecca DeLeon, Danielle Masella in honor of Louie B on his first birthday

Initial Bio 9/1/22: Prince Charming little Tucker is the sweetest little boy thats approximately 8 years old and 9lbs. He came to UYR from a local shelter with severe respiratory and eye infections. With a severe cough and crackling lungs, this little guy was taken directly to the vet where he received a full medical work up and was given antibiotics for both infections. Over the next several days, his infection began to clear. His follow-up vet visit confirmed that both infections had been completely resolved. Tucker is scheduled to be neutered and receive his dental at the end of the month. He will then be ready to go forever home!

It is clear and obvious that Tucker came from a loving home and was well cared for. Unfortunately, without a microchip his owners couldnt be found. Charming describes Tucker perfectly. Just check out his adorable smile one of the cutest weve ever seen! Tucker is a wonderful, happy, and spirited little guy with a big personality. Hes a definite people pleaser that loves attention and curling up with you for some lap time. He gets along well with other small dogs and knows how to sit for a treat.

Chubbs

Meet Chubbs (AKA Chubby), a 9 Year Old, 20 lbs. Yorkie being fostered in Boulder, CO.

***Only Applicants within the Boulder, CO area will be considered.***

THANK YOU TO CHUBBS' RESCUE ANGELS!

Kelly Moltz

Initial Bio (9/18/2022) - Chubbs comes to United Yorkie Rescue as an owner surrender, as his owner is moving and unable to take Chubby to the new residence. Chubbs is mostly up to date on vetting, however will require a dental procedure.

He has separation anxiety and would do well in a home where an owner is frequently present. A work from home or active retired couple would be an ideal home scenario for Chubbs so he can get the attention he deserves and is seeking. Chubbs current veterinarian has indicated that Chubbs, AKA Chubby needs to shed a few pounds. Walking and exercise would be beneficial to help Chubbs trim down a bit.

Stay tuned for more information as Chubbs settles into his new foster home!


To date we've spent $0 on Chubbs's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $500 in donations.

Am I adorable or what?

I love attention!
Florida
Chewie

Chewie is a beautiful silver an almost 4 year old Yorkie. He is 10.8 pounds of adorableness. Chewie is being fostered in Vero Beach, Florida.

Dogs being fostered in Florida must be adopted within the State of Florida.

Updated Bio 9/28/22: Chewie is a wonderful little guy and has settled nicely into his foster home. He has had a vet check and is a healthy boy. Although he has an underbite and some crooked teeth, it doesn't stop him from eating and enjoying treats, or from being very cute. All of the neighbors say he has a lot of personality, and we agree. Chewie was sneezing like crazy when he arrived, so he was taking an antihistamine for seasonal allergies. The sneezing has stopped and he hasn't needed the medication for a few days.

Chewie loves all people and is usually friendly, but can be submissive to us. Sometimes he is shy, especially if he sees another dog. He isn't very interested in them, and it's hard to say how he will do with other dogs in his new home, as we don't have any resident dogs at this time. We are pretty sure that he would prefer to be an only dog, but another small dog would be considered for the right home. However, it's doubtful he will be a good companion or playmate for them. We also don't know about cats or children. He isn't a big barker but will tell me when someone is here. He is also learning to play with toys. When he first got here he just ignored them now if hears one squeak, it's game on!!

Chewie craves attention and will let you know with the faintest little whine if he is being ignored, which to him, is most of the time. He loves to be petted, with belly rubs with ear scratches being his favorite. If you stop, he will paw at you until you start again. Chewie also loves to be brushed. He will roll over so you can get his belly, then throw his head back so you can get under his chin. He does not like to be left alone, so he will need someone who is home most of the time or someone that will take him with them. He is good on car rides and well behaved in the places that I have taken him. He is a lap dog. If what you seek is a lap dog, Chewie might be for you. Most of the time he sleeps right next to me unless he gets too hot, then I will find him in his bed.

It didn't take Chewie very long to find and use the "potty patch" outside. He will ask to go out and if you watch for the signs, he paces in front of the door. He sleeps through the night. A fenced-in yard would be a plus, but not necessary if he can have walks throughout the day. . He is getting better at leash walking but still pulls for rabbits, land crabs, and people. We do have a fence, so I let him outside in the morning. We take walks after breakfast and in the evening.

Chewie is a terrific little dog and will make a great companion. He is getting his teeth cleaned this week, then will be ready to go by October first.

Updated Bio 9/14/22: Chewie's owner passed away and he was taken to the shelter where United Yorkie came to his rescue. He did well in the car on his hour-and-a-half ride from the shelter to his foster home.

So far he is very friendly and seems to like all people. Chewie craves attention, he likes to be petted, with belly rubs and ear scratches being his favorites. He will need a little practice on a leash but is eager to go for walks. He quickly learned where he should potty outside and so far hasn't had any accidents in the house. His vet check will be tomorrow and we will know a little more at that time. More updates and pictures will be coming soon.

INITIAL BIO 9/13/22 Chewie just arrived today from the shelter where he was taken after his owner died. We don't know much about Chewie except he seems to be friendly and like people. Please stay tuned for much more on Chewie as he settles into his foster home and his foster parents get to know this little fellow better.


To date we've spent $223.15 on Chewie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

I am just the cutest!

I went to the Beauty Shop! I loved it!
Florida
Cocoa

Cocoa is a sweet little girl weighing just 8.5 pounds. She is 6 years old and is being fostered in Riverview, FL.

Dogs being fostered in Florida must be adopted within the State of Florida.

Updated Bio 9/18/22: Meet Cocoa, a 6-year-old Biewer Yorkie - a rare find in the rescue world!

In her first home, Cocoa was an indoor dog who spent most of her days watching the news with her owner who absolutely adored her. Cocoa does not associate being outside with going potty. She will use the potty pad indoors most of the time but does have accidents throughout the day. Her foster mom is working on potty training with her.

Cocoa is up to date on all vaccinations and has been spayed. She is scheduled to have her teeth cleaned at the end of September. Unfortunately, she was fed hot dogs and chicken for the majority of her life. She is a tad bit overweight and has a history of kidney stones. Due to this, the vet started her on urinary prescription dog food. Her foster mom is working diligently on getting her adjusted to not eating human food. Cocoa also has a history of luxating patella, which is common to the Yorkie breed.

Going for walks has been a new experience for Cocoa - she absolutely loves being outside!! She walks on a leash like a pro.

She gets along with males and females, kids, dogs, and cats. She does best with calm dogs. She does not really play with toys or other dogs, but she coexists happily. She follows her foster mom everywhere and is content snuggling on the couch and getting belly rubs. Cocoa does ok when left alone for a short period of time, but definitely has some separation anxiety.

She does not jump up on furniture at all. Her foster mom lets her sleep in the bed with her at night and she does perfect until the morning when her foster mom puts her down on the floor when it is time to get up.

Cocoa's ideal forever home would be with a family who is patient and understanding, as potty training and getting her used to the prescription food will take time. She will be her owner's shadow and wants to be with them as much as possible. Cocoa is very go-with-the-flow and has a lot of love to give! She is a joy to be around.

Stay tuned as Cocoa's personality continues to come out.

Initial Bio 9/15/2022: Little Cocoa just came to United Yorkie Rescue as an Owner Surrender. We will know more about her soon, so look for updates. Welcome Cocoa!


To date we've spent $191.46 on Cocoa's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $50 in donations.

Corky

Corky is a sweet Morkie boy weighing 8 pounds. He is 6 years old and is being fostered in Bradenton, FL.

Dogs being fostered in Florida must be adopted within the State of Florida.

Updated Bio 9/23/22: Corky came to United Yorkie Rescue as an owner surrender. He was an indoor dog who spent most of his days inside with his owner watching Television. Corky is healthy and active. He gets along well with his foster sibling and all others he has met on walks. Best part... he hardly barks at all.

Corky loves to ride in the car. He is very well behaved while traveling.

We are still learning about his housetraining, but he listens well, comes when we call him and loves to sit with foster parents. He will be visiting the vet soon and we expect he will get a glowing report.

If Corky sounds like the forever pup you have been searching for, please fill out an application on our website.

Initial Bio 9/15/2022: Sweet Corky came to United Yorkie as an Owner Surrender. We will have an update soon. Welcome to UYR Corky!

George

George is a beautiful Yorkie boy who is 10 years old and weighs 10 lbs. George is being fostered in Dunedin, Florida.

Dogs being fostered in Florida must be adopted within the State of Florida.

THANK YOU TO GEORGE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Rebecca DeLeon, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Bonnie Vaupel, Leah Konowalyk, Barbara Burgess, Melody Urso, Lauren Satterfield, Shawn Hudson, Sandy Pagnotta, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Louise Blaisse, Marsha Goins, Denise Coffey

THANK YOU TO GEORGE'S FACEBOOK DONORS!

Janet Davidson, Gail Kupencow-Hulsen,, Nene Ramirez, Jane Mangini, Marciano Sanchez, Christina Rosa, Karry Rogers, Taren Hill, Colleen Fox, Angela Kruseski, Linda Vessell, Janey Doe, Stephano Grgich, Joan Simms-Ashbrook, Jane St. John, Judy Reid, Adrienne Moriarty, Jason Johnson, Cindy Danley, Polly Hall, Angela Teffeteller, Marsha Butler

Updated Bio: 9/22/22: George saw the surgeon for a checkup today. He has been urinating and moving his bowels like a normal and healthy dog for the past two weeks, so this is a huge improvement! The stent in his urethra was also removed. Imagine his relief, as well as his foster mom's who has had to watch him struggle to do his business since he came into her home 4 weeks ago!

If he continues to urinate freely, we will return in 2 weeks to see what our next step is. If all goes well, we will be able to remove his three remaining stones with another surgery on his bladder. The stones are too large to pass naturally as his urethra has become very fragile.

If it doesn't go as well as we hope, we will be looking at other surgical options to help George.

The hardest part is keeping him resting! He is lively and feels really good in spite of everything. His foster mom is really looking forward to seeing him enjoy his life as he is meant to and deserves. He has a beautiful spirit and is a survivor!

This will be George's third surgery. Please keep all fingers, toes and paws crossed for the little guy. And he appreciates any donations you can make to his care......every little bit helps.

Updated Bio 9/14/22: George went to the surgical specialist for what was to be a routine consultation to see what could be done to get his bladder stones moving and suddenly went into emergency surgery! His bladder was so distended due to his urethra blockage he could have gone into kidney failure. Thanks to the quick action of his surgeon, that didn't happen.

The surgeon was able to get two of the three stones in his urethra pushed back into his bladder where they stand a better chance of passing. The third one is still stuck. A stent was placed into his urethra to help keep it open and he spent the night in the hospital.

It's a step in the right direction! He is now able to urinate freely, which must be a huge relief for this poor little guy who has probably suffered with this for about two years due to the utter neglect of his previous owner. It was also affecting his ability to move his bowels.

He returns to the surgeon in a week for stent removal at which time the decision will be made if he needs another surgery and, if so, what the options are.

George is a little warrior! Through all this, he has enchanted all the vet staff with his sweet disposition and his happy demeanor. The nurse even said that he seemed like he was "having fun" while there and his tail never stopped wagging! And his foster mom got kisses galore when she came to pick him up!

Once we get him through this, he can surely live a happy and healthy life as long as he stays on a special diet. The Dogter says there is no reason why this won't happen.

George continues to give love - lots and lots of it! Whoever loves him back will get so much in return! Can that be you?

In the meantime, he has had to see two vets, a surgical specialist and still needs his dental. George thanks you for any donation amount you can spare for his care. Every little bit helps!

Updated Bio 9/02/22: George's surgeries have, so far, been mostly successful. He is neutered and the Dogter was able to remove a large stone in his bladder, but could not get the stones firmly embedded in his urethra. So, in a few weeks, he will be seeing a surgical specialist who will take care of that. He has apparently been suffering with this for a long time - poor little guy. He is patiently awaiting his dental and is being treated for hookworm.

In spite of all this, he remains his happy, sweet and resilient self and is patiently waiting for his Furever home! George says "Stay tuned and thank you, everyone, for all your donations!!!!!

Updated Bio 9/01/22: George had a home for 10 years and then his owner decided he didn't want him anymore and put him on Craig's list to sell. The person who adopted him only had him for one week because her resident dog terrorized poor George and simply didn't want him as part of the family. It made for a very stressful home situation. She then called United Yorkie Rescue and we took him in. He has surely been bounced some, not to mention being taken away from his home of 10 years! In spite of this, George has proven to be an adaptable, resilient, and happy dog.

We knew he needed a neuter and dental, but after his visit to the Dogter, we learned he has bladder stones, which has caused him a lot of pain trying to urinate. We have no idea how long he has suffered with this. He also contracted hookworm and is being treated for that.

We got a surgery appointment for George pretty quickly - he has a lot going on and he will no doubt feel oh so much better when everything is taken care of.

George has shown himself to be very affectionate, a snuggler extraordinaire, and his preferred spot is close to his person. He can get a little anxious when left in the house by himself but has started to settle down as he feels more secure. His ideal home would be with someone who is home most of the time and even though he doesn't seem to play with other dogs, would welcome the companionship of another pet in the house. But he does want most of the attention! A fenced yard would be ideal, but not necessary if you are willing to take him out for regular walks, which he enjoys very much.

George gets along well with other dogs, cats, children, and people, and a sweeter little guy would be hard to find.

George is truly Looking For Love......will you be the one to give him the love he so deserves?

8/18/19: George had to be surrendered by his adoptive mom as her own little dog is very possessive and jealous and just couldn't get along with him. It made for a very stressful household situation, so his mom made the wise decision to surrender him and called United Yorkie Rescue.

George has been known to be very sweet and gets along well with other dogs, cats and humans. He loves to ride in the car and walks well on the leash. While his foster Mom only just brought him home, she has found this to be true and he has settled in nicely with the resident Yorkie.

He has an appointment with the Dogter soon, so we will know more about his health. We know he needs to be neutered and will probably need a dental, but we are keeping our paws crossed for a clean bill of health.

Stay tuned for updated information on George.

Hello everyone. I love people so much

Hey Squirrel I know you are up there.
Florida
Grizzly

Grizzly is a beautiful, adorable, almost 4 year old silver Yorkie. He weighs 12.3 pounds. Grizzly is being fostered in Leesburg, Florida.

Dogs being fostered in Florida must be adopted within the State of Florida.

UPDATED BIO Grizzly (or Grizz or Grizzy as we call him) took no time to settle in and make himself right at home from the minute he arrived at his foster home. He is happiest when he is with his foster mom or dad. His first love is people more than anything. He will give kisses and love and wants cuddles and belly rubs. From the very first night he arrived there was no question where he would sleep and that was in his foster parents' bed. He doesn't want a doggie bed, not Grizz. He only wants to sleep on the pillow in between his foster mom and dad on their big bed, and that is where he spends his nights.

When Grizz doesn't feel he is getting enough attention and love from his people he will whimper at them with soft little whimpers that seem to say, "Please, pay attention to me."

After his love for people, his second love is trying to catch a squirrel, though maybe not to be his friend. He will spend his time in the fenced backyard doing his best to catch one. He hasn't gotten close yet, but that hasn't kept him from trying. Knowing this, a fully fenced backyard would be very important in Grizzs life. He loves being outside as much as possible and wants to spend his time trying his hardest to catch a squirrel.

Grizzy had his vet visit and he is a very healthy fellow, even though the vet said he was too chubby. This guy loves to eat and now he has to lose 2 pounds. It is possible that his former owner fed him table food, treats, or whatever else he wanted. Now he will get the right amount of food and exercise to lose those pounds. A chubby dog is not a healthy dog. Grizzy probably has some allergies and has been sneezing. A half of an Apoquel has taken care of the sneezing and the itching and he is much more comfortable.

Grizz is not a barker, but he did bark at some people at the vet's office. That was followed by giving kisses to the guy sitting in the chair next to us. He simply loves people so much, therefore a home where he would be left alone regularly for any length of time would not be something he would like. He is fine with the other dogs in his foster home but he really does not interact with them. It is people that are the most important thing in his world.

It is hard to know if Grizzy is house trained. He will do his business outside. There are times when one of the dogs has an accident in the house and no one admits to it. It could have been any one of them. The good news is he is able to go all night without having any accidents and will do his business outside first thing in the morning.

Grizzy doesn't seem to walk very well on a leash. He does pull. More than likely, he can learn better leash behaviors. He does well in the car, but without attention he whines a little. We know these things about Grizz. He seems to know the command Stay. He doesnt seem to like loud noises, yelling, or a lot of commotion. We know Grizzy like people, however we don't know if he likes kids or cats. He is fine with other small dogs, but we don't know how he would do with big dogs. These are still things to learn about him. We do know he won't be a good companion or friend for another dog. People will always be what he loves most and come first in his life.

Unless Grizzy's personality changes, we know he would prefer to be an only dog in an adult home with someone home most of the time. This home should have a nice fully fenced backyard with trees for squirrels and birds he could chase. Your reward for giving Grizz his perfect forever home would be so many kisses and love and the best little friend you could ever want.

Grizzy should be ready for adoption by the end of September.

INITIAL BIO 9/13/22 Grizzly just arrived at his foster home. He was fine in the car ride to his foster home, but he did want someone to be near him. This is all so new to him. Grizzly's owner died recently. The police notified animal control who came and took him to the shelter. The shelter had to wait a few days to see if anyone in the owner's family would want him. When the shelter was able to finally release him, Grizzly became a United Yorkie Rescue dog.

Grizz, as we are calling him, seems to be very friendly, He has already given his foster mom and dad kisses. He was curious about the other two dogs in his foster home and they were just as curious about him. There was a lot of sniffing going on. However, everyone seems to be getting along just fine.

There is so much more to know about Grizzly, so come back soon to find out more about this fella. There will be new pictures too.


To date we've spent $256.17 on Grizzly's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Bio Update 9/1/2022: Izzy is a 13 year-old, 9- pound Yorkie princess being fostered in Summerfield, FL.

Hello there EVERYPAWDY! Its me, Izzyor Izzy Kate as my foster Momma calls me cuz she says Izzy..every proper southern girl should have a middle name! Im just a little Yorkie girl and Im not sure about all that but I just know that if she wants to call me Izzy Kate thats A-OK with me!

I just wanted to drop in and give all the nice HOOMANs out there in social media land who have rooted for me a PUPDATE. Ive been a United Yorkie Rescue girl for 6 whole weeks as of TODAY and my life has sure changed for the GOOD. Why, I barely even recognize MYSELF! I am nothing like the frightened little waif with the infected scabbed eyes that was trembling in pain on that fateful day. That day changed EVERYTHING for me. I couldnt see ANYTHING. I had NO IDEA what was HAPPENING TO ME. All I know is that I said a puppy prayer and reached out my tiny paw through the darkness for help and you ALL reached BACK FOR ME! And since that day my paws (and YOUR LOVE and SUPPORT) have taken me on a most amazing journey . and it continues to this day. We started out with emergency room care, then off to our first specialist, then a second specialist. We tried 4 weeks of a specially formulated medication regimen to try to jump start my tear production and found out from the Dogtor last week that it did not work. GRRRRRR. But there are two other drugs to try that work in about 10% of fur-kids and those came in the mail this week and foster Mom has been super busy making sure I get them all an astounding 9 times a day! Shes lucky Im a good girl and dont mind getting them at all! We will try these for 4 more weeks and if there is still no improvement then I will need a special surgery where they will remove part of my salivary gland from my mouth and implant it in my eye and the saliva it makes will do the work of my missing tears. We will do one eye, recover for 2-3 weeks, then the other. Of course I wish that my problems could be quickly and magically solved with a simple wave of my paw but foster Mom tells me to be patient and says Izzy Kate. Good things come to those who wait. (Hey! I made a rhyme!) I am already so much happier, healthier, and more comfortable and I know that will only get better! My regular Vet says I am in EXCELLENT overall health and that we have no reason to doubt that my BEST DAYS lie ahead of me!

So thats whats been happening in my world! And I just want to say a SPECIAL THANK YOU TO EVERYONE! I wish I could lick each and every one of you in the face! If you have read my story, shared it, donated towards my care, said a prayer for me or my foster familyTHEN YOU ARE A PART OF MY JOURNEY AND I LOVE YOU FOR IT! Please walk with me the rest of the way.Small acts of great love will get us there!

Love, Izzy Kate

Updated Bio 8/4/2022: Izzy came to us when her former owner realized she could not give Izzy the care she needs. Izzy came to us with eyes that were in really terrible shape. Her foster Mom was so alarmed when she first saw them that she took her straight for emergency care. Since that time Izzy has been evaluated by two separate veterinary ophthalmologists. The first saw Izzy on the day of her intake when her eyes were barely visible from infection, swelling, and drainage. They placed Izzy on oral and ophthalmic antibiotics to treat her severe infection, steroids to calm the inflammation, and pain medicine to make Izzy comfortable. The news was heartbreaking. Their diagnosis was that Izzy was permanently blind and they recommended that both of Izzys eyes be removed as soon as the infection subsided. Foster mom was devastated but began Izzys recommended treatment plan and added a few additional steps which included warm moist eye compresses several times per day and the use of her own human lubricating drops on Izzy around the clock.

In only 48 hours Izzy showed significant improvement as the layers of sores and crusted drainage began to come off. On day three the whites of Izzys eyes were visible. Izzys foster Mom also noted that Izzy really seemed like she had at least partial vision. She stopped crashing into things and began following her foster Mom and fur-siblings around her new environment. Blind dogs can adapt extremely well however so there was no way to know for sure if (or how much) Izzy could see. Foster Mom had been instructed to call the specialist in a few days and schedule Izzys eye removal surgery but she just couldnt proceed with that plan if there was ANY CHANCE for Izzys eyes to be salvaged.

So instead, she made arrangements for Izzy to have a second opinion evaluation with a different veterinary ophthalmologist. So off they went for a second opinion and are we ever glad about that! Izzys eyes were much easier to see and examine at her second visit. And we got some very hopeful news..Izzy has light reflexes and at least some degree of partial light and shadow vision in BOTH EYES! Izzy was placed on two new medications designed to stimulate tear production. If these workIzzy gets to keep her eyes and should no longer be in pain. We are hoping and praying with all our might that Izzy continues on her current path of improvement and if so her condition (KCS or chronic dry eye) can be managed medically with a daily eye drop regimen and good hygiene. Izzy returns to the specialist on 8/25 for re-testing and we should have more definite answers then.

As far as Izzys general health goes her regular wellness exam went GREAT! Her heart and lungs are strong and her routine labs (including liver and kidney function) are all good! This week Izzy was spayed, had her dental cleaning, and her microchip inserted. She is now recuperating in the care of her foster Mom and Dad who are both nurses and they are giving precious Izzy all their love and attention.

Izzy is a very loving dog. She bonded almost instantly to her foster parents and the two small dogs in the home. She loves nothing more than to lay near her person or her fur-siblings and follow them around everywhere. She walks well on a leash and is a good eater. She does well in the house-training arena if taken out regularly but she is not perfect and has had some accidents. Izzy lived in a crate 14 hours a day prior to coming to us so we feel like she is doing quite well considering. Izzys perfect home would be a single story, with no water features for Izzy to accidentally fall into. While we are hopeful Izzys dry eyes can be managed medically her adopter must understand that she has sustained some degree of permanent damage and she should be treated as if she is a blind dog. An adopter with previous experience as a blind dog owner would be great but isnt an absolute requirement.

Izzy needs an owner who is home a lot and willing to make sure Izzy stays on her drop regimen without fail. The drops are not difficult to administer and Izzy gladly allows for it. The cost of her current drops are around $50 per month. Izzy wont be able to be adopted until late August if all goes well but we are currently accepting applications for her. If for some reason Izzys current treatment fails she will need surgery and that will push her adoption date back to allow for her recovery. If you feel like you might be Izzys perfect match then head on over to our website and complete an application or email Izzys foster Mom at tnyorkiemama@yahoo.com with additional questions.

The future is looking up for Izzy and she wanted to thank ALL OF YOU for the huge outpouring of love given to her!

Updated Bio 7/23/2022: Izzy comes to UYR from an owner who reached out when they realized they were unable to give Izzy the medical care and attention that she needs and deserves. It is always sad when dogs Izzy's age fall on hard times and need to be re-homed but Izzy's owner did the right thing by reaching out to ask for help so that she could have the very expensive eye care she desperately needs ASAP.

Izzy's foster mom picked her up early this morning and was very alarmed when she saw what bad condition her eyes were in. She knew if Izzy had any chance of saving her eyes or her vision she need to act quickly and that Izzy could not wait until the routine intake exam was scheduled for several days out. She called the nearest emergency clinic to have Izzy seen immediately. Within 15 minutes of pickup, Izzy and her foster mom were en route to Ocala to the University of Florida emergency clinic which is open 24/7. They took one look at Izzy's eyes and rushed her back. They soon returned only to inform her foster mom that Izzy's eyes were in very serious condition and out of the realm of what they could treat in urgent care.

They recommended that Izzy be transported to the main University of Florida Small Animal Hospital in Gainesville. So Izzy was loaded up again and she and foster mom drove 911 - Thelma & Louise - engines blazing style to Gainesville where the Veterinary Ophthalmologist on call was waiting for Izzy to arrive. After a long day, the news came back that poor Izzy was completely and permanently blind and that she had likely been blind for some time as her problem was due to untreated chronic dry eye that had now progressed to ulceration, severe infection, blindness, and that one of her eyes had actually ruptured some time ago and was now a shriveled ball of infected scar tissue.

We are very sad for Izzy because this is very painful and damaging and it could have been prevented or at least managed with proper consistent treatment but that ship has now sailed and we will meet Izzy's needs where they stand today and not look back! Izzy can live a happy, pain-free, and relatively normal life but she is going to need lots of care and will need bilateral enucleations (removal of both eyes) in the future. However, we can't schedule surgery until the infection, ulcerations, and abscesses in her lids and the soft tissue surrounding her eyes have cleared and her tissue is healthy enough to hold sutures that can heal. So Izzy is now on 3 types of antibiotics, steroids, anti-inflammatories, and pain medications.

After spending all day at the hospital, Izzy's long scary day has now calmed a bit and she is settling into her foster home, and she seems to actually be quite happy! Her pain meds have kicked in and she is engaging with her foster siblings (and their puppy friends who are visiting) and is using her sense of smell and feel to map out her new digs. So far she has been a perfect guest and wolfed down her yummy nutritious dinner and let foster mom do her warm eye compresses like a good girl. She has snuggled up in foster Moms lap and is enjoying some belly rubs and snuggle time and is starting to feel like life might just be good again!

Izzy will be returning to UF Hospital in 10 days to 2 weeks to re-evaluate how her infections are healing and if all goes well we can proceed with scheduling her much needed surgeries. Izzy also has a regular Vet appointment later next week to evaluate the rest of her general overall health with a full exam and a set of senior lab values. We did find out today that her vitals were normal and her heart and lungs sounded great so that definitely goes in the PLUS COLUMN!

Please keep those PAWS CROSSED that Izzy gets a good report and is otherwise healthy and adoptable. Weekend emergency care and specialty care comes at a premium so any donations to help Izzy are much appreciated as always!


To date we've spent $1793.82 on Izzy 's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $4317.49 in donations.

THANK YOU TO OSCAR'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta

Updated Bio 8/8/22: Well, well, well, looky here! Am I not the cutest thing you've ever seen?! I just had my spa day today and boy do I feel better! And if I don't say so myself, I think I look better and that I am also quite handsome. At least that's what my foster mom says and I believe her because foster mommies never lie!

I've been told I do some pretty cute things too. My foster mommy says the way I walk sideways in a circle around my food before I eat it is just adorable. I like to do that because it makes me hungrier, okay not really. I'm just really trying to be cute!

My foster mommy carries me around a lot and I just love that. Pretty soon she says she's going to take me with her to the store and see if I like it. I think I will because I love to watch everything that goes on around me, especially people. I figured out how to get up on the sofa chairs now using the stairs. I even use the stairs to get in and out of my parent's bed. Boy, were they surprised to see me sleeping in their bed the first night I was with them here.

I do like to eat my food as long as it's cut up into small pieces. Of course, if I had my choice, Id rather eat mommy's food, but she says no. It took a little while, but she found some food that I do like, so I hope I can gain a little weight now. I guess I am so skinny because I was living on the streets and it was hard to find food I could eat without my teeth or my lower jaw. I see tears in my mommy's eyes when I know she's thinking about it, but I'm a tough guy and I made it through, so I just give her a couple of kisses, and then she feels better.

My foster mom says that I'm a marker and a leg hiker. I dunno, I just have to go potty and that's the only way I know how to do it, and since I'm the new kid on the block here, I want everyone to know I'm here. My foster mommy just puts this thing around my belly that she calls a belly band, and that way it keeps everything clean. But even still, foster mom says I am one cool dude and she wuvs me bunches. Oh yeah, you better have blankets for me too, because I'm an under-cover kinda fella and I love to be next to you wrapped in my blanket. But that's enough about me. Let's talk about you.

Are you ready to adopt the coolest kid on the block? Do you have lots of time to spend with me and keep me company? I like to be held both on our chair and when Mommy is walking around sightseeing. Can you walk me around so I can sniff things I haven't sniffed before? If you think you would love a cutie pie like me (okay, mommy and I may be biased), then you can write my foster mommy or fill out an application to see if we're a good match.

Thank you so much for reading about me. And, if you feel it in your heart to donate to the rescue group that took a chance on me, please consider doing so. You can find the donate button just under this bio. Even though I got a clean bill of health, there are always expenses that come up that need to be covered.

And, if it's not spent on me, you can trust that every penny will go to my brothers and sisters who need it most. They're my family and they deserve to be saved too. So go ahead, click on the donate button and give what you feel in your heart. Thanks again for reading this. I'll be in touch again soon!

Updated Bio 7/26/2022: Well, we couldn't have asked for better news about this awesome little guy! The dogtor gave Oscar a clean bill of health other than a very mild heart enlargement and the yorkie special luxating patellas (something that Yorkies are very prone to get). His eyes are a little cloudy, but he sees and hears really well.

This little dude has already stolen the heart of his foster mom (he had her at hello) and continues to show his upbeat, loving personality. He knows how to get up and down steps too.

Foster mom and dad were concerned about him falling off their bed, so they decided not to bring him to bed for that reason. Well, Oscar was having none of that! Upon awakening, who was in their bed with all his furbaby siblings? You guessed it, Oscar. He found the steps to get into bed and decided thats where he wanted to sleep. Oscar continues to amaze us with how smart, active and alert he is.

He does like to eat and requires a soft diet, and even though he has no teeth or lower jaw, hes even able to eat small treats if they are broken into pieces. He travels very well in his crate in a car but sometimes scratches to get out and be with his foster mom and dad.

Oscar rarely barks, but when he does, its for a good reason, so you must be in tune with this little guy. Its not known just yet if he is potty trained, but his foster mom thinks he may be. Oscar gets along great with his other siblings, so he can be around other dogs as long as that dog isnt aggressive at all, because Oscars such a little guy, that it wouldnt take much to hurt him. Oscar would also do very well as a one-dog family too. He is a very go-with-the-flow kinda guy.

If you think that you may be a great match with Oscar, feel free to email his foster mom for more information. Whoever gets this little guy will be getting a true gem. All the staff at his vet just love him too!

Updated Bio 7/25/2022: Meet Oscar, United Yorkie Rescues newest kid on the block! If you look up the word sweetheart in the dictionary, theres no doubt you will see Oscars face! Oscar came to us after being turned into a shelter as a stray baby. Hes only 3.7 lbs. and is 15 years old. Because of Oscars poor veterinary care in the past, he also has lost all of his teeth, and the whole lower part of his jaw. Can you imagine how scared this poor little fella was on the street trying to survive like that? But that hasnt changed Oscars happy-go-lucky little personality at all!

His foster mom says Oscar LOVES to RUN through the house and isnt the least bit afraid or defensive with his other furbaby siblings. He was quiet on his almost 8-hour car ride (sometimes it takes a lot of people to bring these guys into safe and loving homes), and after his introduction to his new home, he couldnt wait to go exploring. Oh, and the best part, he loves to give kisses when you hold him!

Oscar has been reported as having some medical issues, but we wont know anything more until he sees his dogtor on Monday 7-25-22. So, stay tuned for further information on our little Oscar. But please, if little Oscars story touches your heart, we anticipate a lot of medical expenses, and any donation you make toward his care would be greatly appreciated, especially by Oscar!

Initial Bio 7/24/2022: Meet Oscar. He has recently joined the United Yorkie Family. Stay tuned for more information as Oscar's personality comes to life!

Updated Bio 9/14/22: Romi has gone from wandering the lonely streets of Florida to completing his Physical Therapy and Water aerobics. Sweet Romi has finished his leg/hip surgery and is finally ready to find him a forever home. Romi does have a luxating patella that could need some medical attention in the future.

Since Romi was on the streets alone he tried hard to get along with his dogmates in his foster home, but this is still a work in progress. He is a leader that likes to lead his pack. He is also working on house training, so these two items will need to be continued in his new home as well.

He also loves to roam around his foster mom's big fenced-in backyard and lay on the patio in the warm sun. Even though Romi was neglected in his past he still loves to cuddle and give big kisses! Since Romi is so small it's in his best interest to be adopted into a home with no small children. Romi would do best as an only dog or in a home with docile smaller dog siblings.

If you are looking for a sweet, loving, and playful little man then Romi is the little one for you.

Updated Bio 8/8/22: Romi joined UYR after he was found wandering the streets. Animal control decided Romi should not be returned to his previous home. During his wellness exam, it was discovered that he needed surgery to fix his leg and hip.

He is still a young little guy (approx. 6 yrs old), with high energy and he loves to chase lizards. He is kind of Alpha and likes to be first. Romi does like to bark so the best home for him would not be a condo. He would love a fenced-in backyard as he just loves the outdoors. Romi still has a few potty accidents in the house but he will go on pads. Sometimes he misses the paper, but he tries. Romi gets along with the other doggies in the house but he is tiny so big dogs might take advantage of him or hurt him. In his previous home, the bigger doggies picked on him and would steal his food so he was a bit underweight when he arrived at his foster mommys house. He doesn't ever want to be bullied again so the other doggies in the home should be around his size and not aggressive.

He is the sweetest little boy despite the neglect he has endured in his previous home. Romi loves to eat! He has a big appetite and is slowly gaining some badly needed weight. He also loves to roam around his foster mom's big fenced-in backyard and lay on the patio in the warm sun. He gets along very well with his foster mom's other pups. Even though Romi was neglected in his past he still loves to cuddle and give big kisses! Since Romi is so small it's in his best interest to be adopted into a home with no small children.

Romi still needs 3 more Physical Therapy appointments and he should be ready to move into his forever home in September. Romi could need his new parents to continue exercising his leg to maintain his recovery.

Updated Bio 7/30/22: Hey ya'll, Romi here. My surgery is finally behind me, but Im having a little trouble with my leg. I will be starting physical therapy to strengthen my hip muscles that I didnt use for such a long time because they

hurt so much.

I am still a young little guy (approx. 6 yrs old). I am high energy and I love to chase lizards, so I really need my hip to be strong so I can run and play. I am kind of Alpha and I like to be first. I do like to bark so the best home for me would not be a condo. I would love a fenced-in backyard as I just love the outdoors. I am pee-pad trained, but sometimes I miss the paper some, but I try.

I am a good little boy. I get along with the other doggies in the house, but I am tiny so big dogs might take advantage of me or hurt me. In my previous home, the bigger doggies picked on me and they would steal my food so I was a bit underweight when I arrived at my foster mommys house. I dont ever want to be bullied again so the other doggies in the home should be around my size and not aggressive. Thats all for now. Look for updates as I begin my physical therapy.

Updated Bio 6/21/2022: Romi was found wandering the street. It was determined by Animal Control that Romi should not be returned to his previous home. He then joined the United Yorkie Rescue family. After a few days in his new foster home it was discovered that he needed surgery to get his hip and knee fixed. Sweet little Romi recently underwent his hip and knee surgery and is now recovering. He has not begun to use the leg yet but his foster mommy is doing therapy exercises daily with him. Although he does not appear to be in any pain or discomfort he has not developed the confidence to use his leg yet. His foster mom will continue the therapy in the hopes that he will gain confidence and begin using the leg in the near future.

Meanwhile, Romi has been working in his housetraining and seems to have fewer accidents since he has been neutered. Romi is taken outside several times a day to allow him potty breaks, but he still has a few accidents. His foster mom does have potty pads down for him and he will use them sometimes as well. He's a happy little guy that likes to sunbathe.

Once Romi has recovered from his surgery, his vet will determine if a second surgery is needed for the other rear knee. Stay tuned for additional updates on Romi as he continues his healing process.

Romi's surgery is over but the expenses are still coming in. Please search your heart and give whatever you can to help cover the surgery costs for Romi. Please, he has already been let down by people, let's not let him down again. Romi will never forget your kindness with every step he will be able to take without hurting.

Updated Bio 5/15/22: Sweet Romi was found wandering the streets and was taken to the local shelter where he waited for his family to come get him. When his family was found, Animal Services knew he could not go back to that home where he had lived a life of horrible neglect. Romi the Chihuahua became a United Yorkie Rescue dog.

Little Romi finally had his first surgery on his hip and knee. While Romi was having his surgery, he was also neutered. Poor little fella is now resting but cannot put any pressure on his leg for the first couple of days. His spirits are low right now but hopefully, he will begin to feel better with each passing day. He has a way to go with his recovery and we'll be needing physical therapy to strengthen the muscles around his hip once the hip has begun the healing process. Romi goes back to the vet in two weeks to have his stitches removed and to check the status of the hip and knee.

After he heals, he will need a second surgery to repair his right knee. This happy, loving pup will spend the next several months healing from two surgeries. To give Romi a life free of pain where he can once again run, and play will cost $3,500! We can't do it without you. Romi and United Yorkie Rescue need you to not only care but to help us help Romi.

Without you, his rescue angels, Romi will spend his life in pain and agony. We can't, we won't, let that happen to him. Please search your heart and give whatever you can to help us give Romi the pain-free life he so deserves. Every dollar you can give is one dollar closer to giving Romi his surgery and a life without pain. Please, he has already been let down by people, let's not let him down again. Romi will never forget your kindness with every step he will be able to take without hurting.

UPDATED BIO 4/15/22: How much sadder can a little, not even 5 pound Chihuahua be? This sweet dog was found wandering the streets. He was taken to the local shelter where he waited for his family to come get him. When his family was found, Animal Services knew he could not go back to that home where he had lived a life of horrible neglect. Now, little Romi had no family, nowhere to go, and was in pain. How could United Yorkie Rescue say no to this boy? Romi the Chihuahua became a United Yorkie Rescue dog.

Life had been cruel to Romi until the day his United Yorkie Rescue Angel took him home from the shelter. Romi was malnourished, his toenails were overgrown and curling under the pads on his feet, he was covered in fleas, and he walked holding up his left leg. Romi needed a lot of medical care. He ate everything he was given, he was so starved and hungry. Toenails were easily trimmed, and fleas were taken care of with the proper preventative. That was the easy part.

In spite of the terrible neglect Romi experienced he is such a sweet loving little guy. We knew he deserved everything we could do for him to take that pain away, to give him the gift of a pain-free life, one in which he could walk again without excruciating pain going from his left leg right into his hip joint.

Yes, Romi may be a Chihuahua, but he is also a sweet, wonderful 6-year-old little pup who didn't deserve what life had brought down on him. To give Romi the life he should have had, the life he deserves to have, Romi needs a big surgery. The orthopedic specialist said he needs a femoral head ostectomy or a FHO. This is a surgical procedure that will restore Romi to a pain-free life where he will be able to walk without being in agony. However, that is not all. Unfortunately, Romi also has luxating patellas and bad knees that hurt every time he walks and they need to be fixed too.

Can it get much worse? Yes, it can. Poor Romi will need not one by two surgeries. The first big surgery will be the FHO to his hip and the repair of his left knee. After he heals he will need a second surgery to repair his right knee. This happy, loving pup will spend the next several months healing from two surgeries. To give Romi a life free of pain where he can once again run and play will cost $3,500! We can't do it without you. Romi and United Yorkie Rescue need you to not only care but to help us help Romi. Without you, his rescue angels, Romi will spend his life in pain and agony. We can't, we won't, let that happen to him. Please search your heart and give whatever you can to help us give Romi the pain-free life he so deserves. Every dollar you can give is one dollar closer to giving Romi his surgery and a life without pain. Please, he has already been let down by people, let's not let him down again. Romi will never forget your kindness with every step he will be able to take without hurting.

Updated Bio 3/8/22: Romi is a tiny little boy with a giant heart. He is the sweetest little guy and so very loving. Romi had to be removed from his home when it was discovered that he had been living a life of neglect. When UYR was asked to help, we were there with open arms to save this little guy.

His foster mom has noticed that Romi walks while holding up one leg and he was also malnourished and covered in fleas. His nails hadnt been trimmed in a very long time and had begun to curl around to the pads of his feet. Romi will be taken to the vet to receive medical care and to address his bad hip. We hope to find out if its an old injury that cannot be fixed or if there is the possibility of surgery to repair Romis hip so he will eventually be able to walk using all four legs.

He is the sweetest little boy despite the neglect he has endured in his previous home. Romi loves to eat! He has a big appetite and is slowly gaining some badly needed weight. He also loves to roam around his foster moms big fenced-in backyard and lay on the patio in the warm sun. He gets along very well with his foster moms other pups. Even though Romi was neglected in his past he still loves to cuddle and give big kisses!

Since Romi is so small its in his best interest to be adopted into a home with no small children.

Initial Bio 2/2/2022: Romi was found wandering the street. It was determined by Animal Control that Romi should not be returned to his previous home. He then joined the United Yorkie Rescue family. We don't know a lot about Romi at this time, but we will learn more when we take him to the vet and get him settled into his new foster home. Stay tuned!


To date we've spent $4612.43 on Romi's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $3234.17 in donations.

Kai

Meet Kai, a sweet 15 year old, 8 pound Yorkie boy being fostered in Canton, IL.

THANK YOU TO KAI'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Beth Crawford

8/14/22 Update: Kai is doing well. His two foster brothers are are about 12 pounds each & Kai is about 8 pounds but he doesn't know it. He thinks he is just as big as they are and he can get a bit bossy at times. He came from a one dog household but he has made himself right at home. He enjoys plenty of power naps & really loves treats. He is pretty spry for a 15 year old with bad back knees. I'm sure he would be happy to be the center of attention in a forever home.

7/7/22 Initial Bio: Kai is a 15 year old 8lb Yorkie. He is an owner surrender. His owner had many health issues and was no longer able to care for him. He is a funny little old man. He walks a little stiff legged as his knees seem to wobble a bit. Has that little old man walk. His favorite things seem to be eating and sleeping. He is a bit food aggressive. As long as he is kept separate there are no issues but if he finishes his food first he tries to take over the other dogs food bowls. Other than that he seems to be fine with the other dogs. He likes humans a lot. He doesnt seem to worry about squirrels or rabbits in the yard. He's a pretty calm little fellow.


To date we've spent $509.61 on Kai's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $20 in donations.

Ralphie is a 9 year old 12 pound Yorkie/Poodle Mix boy who is being fostered near Elizabethtown, KY

Ralphie is Bonded to Ruby and the MUST be adopted together

THANK YOU TO RALPHIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Kathy Riggs, Barbara Burgess

Updated Bio 9/19/2022

Ralphie has lost some much needed weight. He is much more playful. He will need a six month follow-up in November to ensure that tick-borne infection has been taken care of with medication. He is a lovable pup, but he does have a shrill bark. He is not overly fond of men. He will occasionally snap at foster-dad. Ralphie is possessive of the person he bonds with. He loves to cuddle. He does well with other dogs.

Updated Bio 7/21/22

Ralphie and Ruby are siblings. They were surrendered because of their owner needed to take care of a family member with special needs due to illness. The owner felt like these dogs need to be with a family who can give them the attention they deserve.

Ruby and Ralphie are both house trained and both love to cuddle and be with their person.

Ralphie likes to be near his foster-mom. He is protective of her space. He growls whenever the other dogs come near her. Ralphie is a sweet boy and we are working on this behavior. Ruby is a dainty, quiet, and sweet girl. Ruby underwent a dental and only lost two teeth. Unfortunately, while she was at the vet hospital, it was discovered that she had colitis. She has been on medication for the colitis and will go for a follow-up soon. Ralphie is a bit on the chubby side, and he will need to be watched to ensure that he doesn't push Ruby aside to finish her food. He is the protector. He watches out for Ruby, and won't allow her to be harmed. He does look for her when she is not around.

Ralphie lost four teeth during his dental. Ralphie currently is on medication to combat a bacterial infection from a tick bite. He is due for a follow-up to ensure the infection has disappeared. If he still has the infection, then he will need another round of medication. If you have any questions email foster mom at mrspak1990@gmail.com or you can fill out an application for them at www.uyr.us.

Diesel

Diesel is a sweet 14yr old (estimated) 8 pound Yorkie being fostered near Ashland city, TN

Out of State Applicants will be considered if it is the perfect fit for Diesel

THANK YOU TO DIESEL'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Tracy Dilmore-Cheatham County Animal Clinic in memory of Ashton Smith

Updated Bio 9/3/22

Diesel was surrendered because his elderly owner was unable to take care of his senior needs. He more than likely hasnt had much Vet care in his life. That being said, he has a beautiful, healthy silky coat and the only medication he takes is a joint supplement since he is an older guy.

Diesel enjoys exploring the yard, going for walks and sitting beside his person. He likes to sleep in his own doggie bed instead of with his person. When he wants something, a lot of times hell stand up on his hind feet and wave his front legs up and down. Hes reasonably active but also will just chill for hours. Hes learning to play and is a very smart boy.

Diesel has cataracts in both eyes, but his left eye is blind. The Dogtor suspects he can still see shadows in his right eye but most likely he has poor night vision. He is mostly deaf but sometimes responds to maybe a very loud sound. He is not a barker.

Since coming into Rescue Diesel has been updated on all shots, has had a dental, lost most of his teeth but he eats just fine, he has been neutered and microchipped. If you have it in your heart to give this sweet senior boy a home of his very own please email foster mom at mandymsmith1@yahoo.com or fill out an application at www.uyr.us.

Initial Bio 6/14/22: Diesel has been with Foster Mom for about a week now and she is learning more about him every day. Diesel is also learning new rules and adjusting to being in a different environment. So far we know that Diesel does well with cats, other small dogs and children. He is a very happy boy who just wants to be with his people. Diesel came into rescue very skinny and matted. He has had a dental, vaccines and a grooming so far and he is feeling so much better! Foster mom is working on getting him to a healthy weight as well. He is scheduled to be neutered on the 30th of June. Diesel also has an enlarged prostate and that will be addressed as well during the neuter. Diesel has cataracts due to aging but he gets around reasonably well. Diesel wasnt house broken before Rescue and due to his age it will take awhile to get used to a routine. He still marks and will use the bathroom inside so Foster Mom has him wearing a Belly Band around the house to protect floors and furniture. Please consider giving this sweet boy a Furever Home he wont disappoint.


To date we've spent $1358.11 on Diesel 's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $275 in donations.

Jackey (Jack) Boy fluid filled skin pouch on his neck had been drained by the veterinarian, however it started to fill up again. He is scheduled to have surgery in the next coming week to remove the pouch and hopefully it will not return.

In the meantime, Jackey (Jack) Boy is a happy boy and is enjoying his canine friends and cuddling with his humans.

Updated Bio 5/20/22

Jackey Boy is a beautiful boy, weighing 12lbs. He is approximately 8 years young and is being fostered in Murfreesboro, TN. Jackey Boy will need to be adopted no more than 200 miles from his foster home.

Jackey Boy is a loving little boy who gets along famously with his foster brothers and sister. He loves to run and play with his toys. He especially loves soft squishy toys and balls he can carry around with him. He has a sweet disposition and enjoys car rides with his foster parents. He loves to cuddle and sleep next to his human all night. Jackey Boy is house trained and is ok with a crate when his foster parents go out on the town.

Jackey Boy visited the Veterinarian on 5/10 and received his vaccinations and a microchip. On 5/18 he was neutered and had his teeth cleaned. No extractions for this guy. Jackey Boy does have a fluid filled skin pouch on his neck and this was drained by the Veterinarian. Not sure what this is but most likely from an untreated abscess. We will check that again on our follow up visit. Jackey Boy does have glaucoma. Unfortunately, it was not treated early and Jackey does not have sight in his right eye. He has limited sight in his left eye, but this does not slow him down. He makes up for his lack of vision with his keen sense of hearing and smell. That is why God gave us 5 senses right? He is receiving eye drops for the glaucoma and we will discuss the progress he is making at his follow up visit in a couple of weeks. Jackeys blood work was pretty good, and he is on a multivitamin for a low red blood cell count. No biggie says the Vet. Of course, Jackey Boy will need to stay on his heartworm and flea and tick medications. We will be excited to update everyone after Jackey Boys follow up visit.

If you want a best bud, please contact Jackey Boy foster dad at jam4bama@unitedyorkierescue.org or submit an adoption application at www.unitedyorkierescue.

Initial Bio 4/27/22

Jackey Boy is a super sweet dog. He loves to play and acts like a puppy. He is obsessed with balls and will roll the ball to you when he wants you to throw it. He also enjoys other toys that has a squeaker in it. Jackey Boy gets along great with other dogs and is not an alpha at all. He likes to sleep in a bed next to his persons bed and so far doesnt want to sleep with foster mom. He does have eye issues and will be checked out by the Dogtor on the 16 of May. His sight is hindered a bit but he does have a great since of smell and super hearing and can do most anything other dogs do and gets around just fine. So far we have learned that he does not have separation anxiety and just chills while foster mom is at work. Jackey is a happy boy who just wants to be loved and play. We are not sure why he found himself homeless and in a shelter and never claimed but we are happy to help him find his new home. Stay tuned for more as we get to know him better.

Updated Bio 9/2/22

We have an update on Miss Roxy Rose. If you remember from her initial bio To no fault of her own she found herself abandoned on a street corner. She is blind, mostly deaf and upon her first examination at the shelter she was extremely matted, flea infested, malnourished and super scared. Roxy Rose needed special medical care such as a dental, care for her eyes, super bad skin, etc.. She has been getting special baths to help her skin. Her hair is growing back in and she is looking more healthy. She has gained some weight She has already made so much progress. Roxy had a Dental this week and lost a few teeth. Her eyes werent getting any better and it was determined that she has dry eye syndrome and will need to be on a medication for this for life. Also one of the findings during her check ups it was noted that her back right leg had been broken at some point in her life and probably didnt have the proper care so she does walk a bit wobbly. All that being said she is happy laying in her soft bed, eating her yummy meals and drinking her fresh water. She has been getting used to being petted and is not longer stiff and jumpy when being touched. She likes being outside for a bit and will always go potty out there when you take her. She cant see but can hear some and her sense of smell is perfect so she gets around pretty well. Please continue to donate to her care and if your interested in giving this Golden Girl a forever home for the rest of her life email foster mom at mandymsmith1@yahoo.con or go to our website at www.uyr.us and fill out an application.

For those who haven’t read her initial bio Sugar Cookie found herself abandoned on a street corner with her friend Roxy Rose. They both were mostly blind, extremely matted, flea infested, malnourished and super scared. Sugar cookie had severe ear infections and was in need of a dental, and had super bad skin, etc..

Sugar Cookie had her dental this week and lost one tooth. Her ears are cleared up and we will clean them out regularly in hopes that she doesn’t suffer an ear infection again. Sugar Cookie had many skin lumps and bumps which the Dogtor removed most and sent two off for a biopsy to make sure they are nothing to be concerned about. She is a happy girl now who wags her tail to be petted and loves her food and has reached a good weight. Sugar Cookie is blind and deaf but that doesn’t stop her from getting around well and wanting love and attention.

Bella Stella

Meet Bella Stella, a sweet 11 year old, 15 pound chunky little Yorkie girl being fostered in Azle, TX. Only TX residents will be considered. Bella came in with her sister, Bessie.

THANK YOU TO BELLA STELLA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Pam Roberts, Lindy Long, Carl Shea, David Lavine

08/21/22: Bella Stella along with her sister, Bessie, are doing so well. These girls are a bonded pair and must be adopted together. Bella Stella was diagnosed with Cushings and it is being managed by medication. Cushings is a condition that causes the adrenal glands to produce too much cortisol. She is also a diabetic and that is being managed with insulin. She must stay on a prescription diet food in order to manage her diabetes. Finally, due to her diabetes, her vision is low and she is not producing her own tears. She is seeing a veterinary ophthalmologist and being treated with a couple of eye medications. Despite it all, she is happy, loving, and loves to snuggle. She is very smart, she has learned to map the house and yard and can navigate both very well with her low vision. Bella loves her sister Bessie and likes to be in the same vicinity where she is. Bella is resilient and deserves a forever home with her sister Bessie to live out her life. With her ongoing medications, doctor visits, and prescription, UYR could use your help. If you can help financially with her care we would be very grateful. Any amount will help towards her ongoing expenses.

5/24/22 Initial Bio: Meet beautiful Bella Stella. Bella is no longer a chunky 15 pounds but is a healthy 12 pound 10 year old Yorkie spayed female. Bella came in with her sister Bessie and they must be adopted together since they are a bonded pair. These two have been together since they were puppies, but from two different litters. Bella, unfortunately, developed diabetes last year. Her prior owner had her and Bessie since they were pups but due to circumstances beyond her control, she could no longer afford the vet bills and she lovingly surrendered then to UYR where foster mom has worked with her, under the direction of the vet, to get her insulin levels stabilized and put her on a prescription diet for diabetic dogs. During that time, Bella lost several pounds and is feeling so much better. The diabetes has taken a toll on Bellas eyesight and her vision is low. She has an appointment with the veterinary ophthalmologist very soon so the vision she does have, can be preserved. Bella and Bessie are easy going girls who want to hang out with you, roam in the yard, and just be loved. Bella and Stella will need an adopter that can dedicate time and effort to Bellas medical needs. This includes insulin, prescription dog food, eye drops and any other medical needs that may arise. Bella is on a schedule that needs to be adhered to for insulin injections and feeding. Bella will be a labor of love but oh goodness, the rewards you will reap from this loving little girl will far outweigh the care she receives from you. Homes with small children is not appropriate for these senior girls. They need a calm, attentive, loving environment to live out their life with each other. If you think you have what it takes for Bella and Stella, please fill out an adoption application using the link below.

Initial Bio 5/30/22: Meet Bessie, a 9 year old 8 pound spayed Yorkie girl. Bessie and her sister Bella must be adopted together. Bessie is a sweetheart with lots of love to give in her senior years. She watches out for her sister Bella but loves to just sit in your lap and get lots of love. Bella is in pretty good health but she has a couple of small masses that will be removed in the next week. Bella is easy going but will let you know that she is very happy to see you when you return home. Like her sister Bella, Bessie would do well in a home with someone that works from home or is retired. A home with small children would not be appropriate for Bella and Bessie.

Chance

Meet Chance, a precious 4.6 pound, 3-year-old Yorkie mix being fostered in Georgetown, TX. Only Texas residents will be considered.

THANK YOU TO CHANCE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, David Lavine

Initial Bio 9/5/22:

Here is an adorable Parti Yorkie mix little boy named Chance. He is an approximately 4.6 lb., 3-year-old, bundle of Love, Love, Love! His name is Chance because our team jumped in to help this little guy from enduring any more physical neglect than he has. He was picked up by a shelter as a stray. We felt he deserved a second "Chance", and he is making our wish come true.

Chance has only been with UYR for 5 days, but his pictures show how quickly he is responding to medical care and a tremendous amount of TLC. In his previous life, it is obvious he was kenneled most of the time, and it showed when he began to walk because he could barely walk from being kenneled most of his young life. He is so emaciated from lack of food you can feel his ribs and spine protruding. He is food aggressive like he has been out on his own for a while trying to survive. He is walking everywhere now that he has been walking and gaining his strength and being on medication to help with inflammation. He has an eye infection that seems to be healing and even though he is very young he will need a dental soon since he was neglected without a good diet. Chance is a little anemic but will be retested on 9/6 and now that he is getting the nutrition, he needs he most likely will be getting his neuter and dental in the near future.

Sweet Chance loves, loves, loves his foster mom. He follows her EVERYWHERE! He hadn't been held or loved and he is thriving on the touching, kissing, and being carried around. His next family will be getting a sweet lovable lap baby who will show them how grateful he is for another chance.

Foster mom has 3 dogs, and he does very well with them. One large dog 65 lbs. and 2 small. He likes to follow them and go outside but he would be just as happy in a home with not pets and someone to love him to the moon and back. He loves to potty outside, but since he is on a steroid to help with his infections, it is hard for him to go outside every few minutes. Chance loves the yard and is slowly learning to wander and find his favorite spot.

He is adjusting to his new world and everyday he acts like he has always been here.

He hasn't shown any interest in marking in the house and the only barking is when foster dad comes into the room, and we are still trying to figure that one out. If you feel that you would like to love Chance, please complete the application using the link below or here: http://www.uyr.us/?page_id=12&dogid=137010


To date we've spent $121.98 on Chance's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $125 in donations.

Meet sweet Davey, a very ill little Yorkie boy who is being fostered in Azle, TX. Right now, Davey went right to the Emergency Critical Care facility in Dallas where he is being treated for kidney failure and pancreatitis. He will not be available for adoption for some time until we get his little body back on track.

Update 8/21/22: Davey is healthy and happy. His condition is stable and he still has that fighting spirit that helped him weather through two hospitalizations where he was critical and kidney disease. He continues to stay on prescription food for his kidney disease and his history of pancreatitis. His is an older guy so his vision is low but he loves, loves to snuggle. He is continuing to live out his life with his foster mom and remains glued to her side. If you are interested in meeting this little guy, please go to the link below this bio to complete an online adoption request. Davey's health is well managed now; he continues with his regular vet checkups and prescription food. UYR would appreciate any monetary donations to help with the cost of providing his care. Thank you!

Update 3/20/22: Davey is doing great! Thanks to everyone that donated and helped with his vet bills these past months. Davey is maintaining is weight; he had a checkup last month and received a good report. He still has chronic kidney disease and foster mom monitors his fluid intake and eating habits. Davey continues to eat his prescription dog food to control his kidney disease. He is happy, healthy and a typical dog enjoying his life from the comfort of foster moms lap. Davey will continue to be monitored by the vet and stay on his special prescription diet for the reminder of his life. United Yorkie Rescue appreciates all the donations made to help this guy live out his life happy and healthy.

UPDATE November 13, 2021 We have good news and potentially bad news about Davey. Keep in mind, this boy is a fighter. The great news is that the CT Scan showed that Davey did not have a mass behind his eye but instead he has an abscess that appears to be coming from his mouth. This is good news. Once the abscess was confirmed, the hospital started Davey on IV antibiotics and hoped he might be eating by today. A call from the veterinary internist this morning was not as good. The swelling in Daveys face and around the eye has began to go down but the eye itself will not close. The vet staff are keeping his eye lubricated and the ophthalmologist is working with his team to try to save the eye. The internist needs to keep Davey in the hospital and hopes that they will see some improvement in the swelling as the day goes on. The abscess is being cultured and we hope to learn soon what type of infection he is fighting. The other good news is that Daveys fever is gone however, the vet did blood work and his sugar levels are a little low but that could be due to him not eating for several days however the vet is keeping a close eye on him. On Monday, the veterinarian team will make a decision about Daveys eye if the swelling has not subsided. They may need to take the eye out and clean out all the infection but we are in a holding pattern until then. This little guy is being kept comfortable the most important part - and receiving lots of care. Please continue to support United Yorkie Rescue. If the vet team needs to do surgery on Monday, that will be another expense for this little guy plus continued support in the hospital. As we come up on this Thanksgiving season and the spirit of giving, we would appreciate you thinking of us as we continue to help Davey fight off this infection. We appreciate all of you that have given to this guy and for your positive thoughts and continued prayers. We still need your help and ask that you consider giving to United Yorkie Rescue. Continue to send prayers and positive thoughts for this little fighter.

Updated bio 11/11/21 Davey update - We need your help again with this little guy!!!! Davey has been doing great until yesterday, November 10, 2021. Foster mom noticed he was not acting like himself and with his history of kidney disease and pancreatitis, she was not taking any chances and had him in the vet that morning. Daveys temperature was 104 and his blood work showed he had an infection somewhere but the vet was not sure where. The vet started him on an antibiotic and told Foster Mom to watch him and call if he was not better the next morning.

This morning, November 11, 2021, foster mom immediately saw that Davey had a problem with his right eye. It was protruding a bit and oozing. Foster Mom had Davey back in the vet before 9 a.m. The pressure in his right eye was very high and when the vet tried to get him into an ophthalmologist, they could not see him so the Daveys wonderful veterinarian suggested I get him in through the animal emergency. If you have never had a dog with a bulging eye, it is very, very painful. Foster Mom took Davey to the animal emergency room/hospital. The vet ophthalmologists, located at the ER hospital, were in surgery so the Emergency room vet sent Daveys records with a tech to the operating room for the ophthalmologist to look at. Ophthalmology, internal medicine, and the emergency vet all agreed that Davey needed to be hospitalized for pain control and he needed a scan to see what is going on behind the eye. His scan is scheduled for tomorrow morning.

Right now, we have incurred a $1,000 emergency room vet bill for today, and the scan will be about $2500 and this does not include the treatment once the vets figure out what is going on with this little 5 pound guy. Davey is a fighter. He fought through pancreatitis, his kidney disease is now well managed through diet and his personality is one that he does not realize he is only 5 pounds. We really need your help financially to continue to treat Davey. As long as Davey wants to fight, we are going to help him and give him every opportunity to beat whatever is going on with him. As always, we so appreciate our donors and every little bit will help. You can go to our website at www.uyr.us to make a donation for Davey. Thank you again for all your help and prayers that this little guy will continue to fight.

10/3/21: Davey is doing much better now. Davey was released from the ER on August 25, 2021 and went back to his original foster mom. The ER wanted to leave the feeding tube in Davey because he was not eating well but UYR decided not to do that and believed he would improve once he was in his foster home. Prior to foster mom picking him up, an appointment was made for Davey to see the regular vet. Davey immediately recognized foster mom when she got him from the ER. Two days later he was seeing the vet. More blood work was done and the vet suggested a liquid nutritional supplement for foster mom to syringe into Davey if he did not eat. Foster mom was also syringing water into Davey several times a day. Daveys blood work showed his kidneys were still not doing well so the vet called a canine nutritionist for a consult to determined the best diet for him since he had pancreatitis and poor kidney function. The vet told foster mom to put Davey on a hepatic food and come back in one month. Dave has been eating canned hepatic food, warmed up of course, and is drinking better but foster mom is still syringing water into him to make sure he is getting enough fluids. Davey will return to the vet in a few days for more blood work and a check up. This little guy has really fought to make it and it shows. He is running, and barking and has decided he will be the alpha even with foster moms 50lb dog. He is eating well and drinking water better but still needs to have water syringed. UYR still needs your help. UYR has spent over $6,000 on this little guy. UYR continues to pay for his vet bills, blood work, prescription food and medical necessities. We so appreciate the people who have donated to this little guy so that we could save his life. Without our wonderful donners, Davey would not have continued to enjoy his life. Davey spends a lot of time in foster moms lap, even when she is working. Davey lets foster mom know he is waiting to be picked up by barking at her. He also barks at her when he is hungry or needs to go outside. Please continue to help us help Davey by donating to UYR. Every little bit helps whether it is $10 or more if you can. Thank you for your continued support and keep checking back for more Davey updates!!!!

08/24/21: Davey is now being fed with a tube inserted into his stomach. We have recently had an ultrasound performed and have pulled some specific tests which are quite costly and have sent off for answers, We are addressing the issues pertaining to his pancreas, kidneys, GI tract and small intestine. Davey is being tube fed as he continues to refuse food and is dropping in weight. Please help if possible. UYR has quite a few medically needy babies at the moment so your donations are greatly appreciated to help any and all of our babies. Thank you and bless you all!

08/21/21: Meet sweet, sweet Davey. Davey originally came to United Yorkie Rescue in December 2018 and was adopted by a loving family in January 2019. Davey's foster mom received a tearful phone call on August 20, 2021 from Davey's family saying they were in the Emergency Room with Davey and the vet staff were currently working on him. Davey had some mild kidney issues when he was adopted but the kidney issues worsened over the past 2-1/2 years. Davey's family has gone through enormous hardship with COVID hitting. They suffered job loss and most recently loss of their home resulting in living with other family members. Davey's family said that he was barely breathing and not moving, his blood pressure was almost non-existent and the vet team was unable to draw his blood. They immediately started him on fluids as he was severely dehydrated and his kidneys were failing. While the vet team worked on him, they informed his family that he was critical and they would need to keep him. The cost to get him well was more than his family could afford so they did the most loving thing that a family can do and reached out to UYR and asked to surrender him back to us to save his life. UYR immediately went into action after the surrender and began working with the animal emergency team to save his life. Little Davey has dropped from 7 pounds to 4 pounds and his kidney function has declined over the past two years. Davey is improving a little. He is standing and perking up but will not eat and the diarrhea continues. Kidney values are improving but it's been 4 days not and we have to see if he can process foods. The emergency team will be inserting a feeding tube to get Davey the nourishment he needs and the medical bills are continuing to climb to well over $5000. Today he is thinner and very sick. We need your help to save Davey's life. Please consider donating toward his care and help us get him on the road to recovery. Use the DONATE link below this bio content and thank you as always for your help.


To date we've spent $15029.35 on Davey's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $5316.63 in donations.

Update 9/14/22: Hi everybody, its me Emma writing to tell you about the last 6 weeks. Lets see, I am 6 months old, weigh 9.8 pounds and starting to lose my baby teeth.

So my last pupdate was 7/23/22 and everything was going great. On 8/1/22 though I had another severe HOD attack. Off to the Veterinary Emergency Group I go again. Luckily FM is learning what to watch out for so she got me there before it became too severe. It was severe enough to be kept overnight (again). I got a catheter and some pain relief medication. Fortunately this time I only had to stay one night and was able to go home the next morning. They sent FM a couple of pictures during the night to let her know I was feeling a lot better. I heard FDs voice before I saw him and I sure did get excited to see him and my FM. VEG put me on another new Prednisone program with gabapentin for pain management. I was so happy to get home and sissy told me she missed sleeping next to me and that FB doesnt know or want to play tug of war with her. Boy oh boy those steroids make me feel so hungry all the time and Ive been gaining weight. Hopefully that extra weight will come off when I stop the Prednisone so keep your paws crossed. For those of you that do not know what HOD is, below is a brief article about it.

https://www.petplace.com/article/dogs/pet-health/hypertrophic-osteodystrophy-hod-in-dogs/

On August 19, I went to the Animal Diagnostic Clinic to see the Internal Medicine Dogter. UYR wanted to make sure everything was normal. They poked me with a needle and stole some blood. Then they prodded and pulled on my body parts to find out what was tender and what hurt. My blood work came back great. The Dogter changed my Prednisone program due to the past problems Ive had with HOD. We are now on a very very very slow program weaning off the Prednisone. I probably have about 4-6 weeks before I can stop taking that stuff. Hopefully this HOD stuff will go away in the next few months but just so you know there is a small small chance that I may have outbreaks the rest of my life.

Because of the Prednisone I am famished all the time. So FM has broken down my regular daily kibble amount to 3 meals and I get afternoon and nighttime snacks. I get to have about 1/4 cup of cottage cheese for my morning snack and 1/4 cup of watermelon, honeydew, cantaloupe and pineapple nighttime snack. Sometimes shell substitute a rice cake for one of those. I sure do miss my biscuits though and I get just one Variety Snap a day.

I will get my 3rd puppy booster shot on 9/16 so the only shot Ill need will my rabies vaccination. My microchip was inserted when I got my 2nd puppy booster shot. FM says I still need to get spayed so I wont ever have any puppies and maybe they might have to extract a couple of baby canine teeth cuz my big girl toofers are coming in. We just need to talk with the Dogter about when would be a good time to do those things.

So right now I am a very happy little girl. I play hard with my sissy be it tug of war with a toy, wrestling with Hannah or when we get to go outside and play chase. I try and catch grasshoppers and flies and I love to roll in the grass. We love to be outside now that the weather is cooler. FM has enjoyed watching us grow up and feel like regular puppies.

FM is hoping that in the very near future Hannah and I can officially start looking for my new family. We will need to be adopted together because we are so very very bonded with each other. If you want to you can fill out an application cuz FM prints every one and puts it in her folder.

On my next pupdate I will let everybody know what I need to have in my furever home. So please stay tuned for that. Also it would be great if you could share me with your friends and family. If you feel inclined to you can send UYR.us a donation towards my health care and that would be so pawsome as my care costs just keep going up and up. I am so grateful that UYR will go the distance for my healthcare and do anything to get and keep me healthy. You can donate via PayPal or a credit card at the link on the bottom of my page.

Puppy kisses from Emma

Pupdate 7/24/22: Whew, what a month Ive had. An emergency room visit and I had to stay 2 nights. I went home on a new Prednisone and Gabapentin program that will last for over a month. FM also learned that this HOD stuff will maybe mess with me when I get any type of vaccinations as my autoimmune system could go into overdrive when the vaccinations are introduced into my system. So getting myself UTD with those vaccinations will take a while as my Dogter will not give me a shot when Im in a HOD episode, only when I am a healthy happy puppy will she give me a shot. So I finally got my 1st DHPP shot and will need 2 more spread weeks apart and then we got to throw the Rabies vaccination in there to. I am back to my happy normal puppy self and am almost halfway through my new medicine program. I overheard FM talking to her Boss Lady about making an appointment with an Internal Medicine Dogter, what ever that is but the word Dogter was heard loud and clear. I guess they want to make sure everything internally is growing properly because of my growth spurts. I seem to react more intensely than my sister Hannah and I am wondering if it is because I am smaller. I hope FM will ask that Dogter that question.

Anyways I feel so much better these days. I am playing with my sis, sometimes torturing her cuz I think I am the boss lady here in the home. I found out I just love to roll around in the grass outside. That those things that fly in the sky that are bigger than birds and make a funny noise intrigues me. It rained some big raindrops last week and FM caught me looking up and trying to catch the raindrops when the were falling down. She laughed so hard. I love to try and bite the water that comes out of the hose too. FM said that in a couple of weeks she might take me into the pool. What is that? I only see a humongous water bowl in the back yard. My potty training is getting better. Now I mostly hit those pads shes got everywhere around the house but I still occasionally have accidents on the rugs around here. My pooping skills still need to be worked on. I almost do it on the pad but it is usually just inches away from them. I am finding out that I like cantaloupe and watermelon, they are so sweet and delicious. I eat a lot and poop a lot because of the Prednisone that I am taking. I love all toys and will steal any toy that FB and Hannah is playing with. Hannah and I usually end up playing tug of war with one toy eventually. So my life is great right now.

Foster Mom here, wed like to let everybody know that we will be holding off on adopting out Emma until she is UTD on all her vaccinations and we get this HOD figured out and under control. This may just take a few weeks, a few months or even possibly longer. We will still be taking applications so if you feel that you can give this sweet girl a beautiful furever home with the possibility of future possibly expensive vet care because of HOD, please fill one out and send it in. If you dont mind maybe you could share our post and as usual if you are able to we could always use donations towards Emmas extremely large medical care bill. Please use the link below this update to donate.

Pupdate 6/30/22:EMMA AND HANNAH (TEXAS). LOOKING FOR DONATIONS.

Emmas and Hannahs Foster Mom here updating everyone on our sweet baby girls. Today it is Hannah that is not feeling that great at all. So how should I start this one this time? As soon as Emmas pupdate was added to her biography and posted just a few days ago Emma started to feel better as each day passed. But that awful HOD decided to get ugly with Hannah once again. This is Hannahs 2nd episode with HOD since her birth and she turned 4 months old on Saturday June 25th. So far it seems that Hannahs HOD episodes are not as severe or as frequently as Emmas but still very painful for several days. Sunday 6/26/2022 started out like any other day. HOT HOT HOT outside. With the wonderful exception that Emma finally is feeling so much better that she wants to play with the toys and with her sister. Hannah ate great, played like crazy with her sister Emma and was just her typical happy self until about Noon. I noticed that her gait was just a bit different, especially with her right front leg. So I picked her up she cried and I thought to myself, please no, not that HOD again. She crashed at about 3 PM. Did not want to eat, did not want to drink, no playing, no peeing or pooping. Every time I carried her outside she whimpered in pain, it didnt matter how careful I was, if I carried her in my arms, or cradled in a soft pillow as she made the most heartbreaking cries of pain. I would set her gently on the ground and she would just not move and lie there and look at me with those incredibly sad eyes and cry. No amount of coaxing could get her to walk. Emma was still on her steroids but we were at a place that the doses were every other day cuz we were weaning her off of them. She still had 2 days of doses of the gabapentin for her pain,,, so we borrowed a couple of Emmas steroid tablets, added Tramadol and Gabapentin and gave Hannah these meds at bedtime. I knew that in the morning both Susan, my Team Leader and myself would be calling CHEW Animal Clinic in the morning to request more Steroids and Tramadol as we had plenty of the liquid Gabapentin on hand. Both dogs gave me some ugly I dont like this stuff faces whenever I gave them the liquid Gabapentin. So I decided to taste test it and sure enough I even made an ugly face too and am so grateful that my Gabapentin comes in capsule form for us hoomans. During the night her whimpers became loud cries of pain and I became very worried for her. I called CHEW Animal Clinic first thing the next morning. Dr. Leigh and her staff were wonderful once again during yet another emergency for these 2 UYR babies. So Dr Leigh decided that Hannah needed to start a new steroid treatment. Plus her Gabapentin was changed to 3 times a day instead of 2 and they added Tramadol at 2-3 times a day depending on how much pain we thought Hannah was feeling. My husband John offered to drive to Dallas and pick up all the medications. (I am so lucky and grateful to have him as my partner in crime with my fosters and UYR.) All I could do was watch over Hannah and once again I just felt so helpless that I could not take her pain away. Any movement caused her excruciating pain and her cries told me so. I decided to put a soft pillow in a crate and Hannah gently on top the pillow. The Aero bed was still there from Emmas episode so now I could sleep by Hannah and could monitor her cries. It was a terrible night, neither one of us got any sleep. Emma and my own pups all slept near Hannah to watch over her. The next day, June 28th and this day also wasnt any better at all for Hannah or myself. Boy oh boy, did Emma feel so much better and just wanted to play play play with her sister. I was making sure Hannah stayed hydrated by giving her liquids via a syringe but there were only a few times that was needed. as she wanted to drink from her water bowl. Hannah seemed to enjoy her Rice and chicken mush every night and drank most of her special water from her bowl. The steroids, Tramadol and Gabapentin seem to be kicking in as Hannah was not crying as much or as loudly as in the past 2 days. So right now its 8 PM on the 29th shes lying down right next to me looking at me every once in a while with her beautiful sad puppy girl eyes as I try and distract Emma from the play mode. I am sure tomorrow will be a more pain free day for her. I hope shell be able to sleep comfortably tonight and not cry in pain occasionally . One great thing that happened during this entire episode was that I got so many Hannah kisses and lots of tail wags so I am so grateful and happy that Hannahs episode with HOD was not quite as severe as Emmas was. Please keep good thoughts for our sweet Hannah and little Emmas in your hearts and mind. If you are able to they both would appreciate and love any donations towards their health care, every donation is a blessing from all of you wonderful followers. All you have to do it hit the donate button to help Hannah, Emma and United Yorkie Rescue out. Every donation is a blessing and we are ever so grateful for those who have donated before and those that will donate towards their care for the future large Veterinary Bills that will come our way. We all would like to Thank all of you for keeping up with their pages and stay tuned for another pupdate from the girls themselves in the very near future. They sure do like to write about themselves. You can also donate for them on the website

6/23/2022 Update: Emma's Foster Mom here updating everyone on sweet baby girl Emma as she's not feeling that great today. So how should I start this? No sooner than Emma wrote her recent pupdate that was posted just a couple of days ago did HOD reared its ugly head up once again. I believe this is her 5th episode with HOD since her birth and shell be only 4 months old on Saturday June 25th. 6/21/2022 started out like any other day. Emma ate great, played like crazy with her sister Hannah and was just her typical happy self until about 4 PM. I noticed that her gait was just a bit different and when I picked her up she cried and I thought to myself, please no, not that HOD again. She crashed at about 8 PM. Did not want to eat, did not want to drink, no playing, no peeing or pooping. Every time I carried her outside she whimpered in pain, it didn't matter how careful I was, if I carried her in my arms, or cradled in a soft towel, she made the most heartbreaking cries. I would set her gently on the ground and she would just plop down and lie there and look at me with those incredibly sad eyes and cry. Emma was still on her steroids but we were at a place that the doses were every other day cuz we were weaning her off of them. She still had 2 days of doses of the gabapentin for her pain. During the night her whimpers became loud cries of pain and I became very worried for her. We got her in quickly to our wonderful CHEW Animal Clinic first thing the next morning. Dr. Leigh and her staff were wonderful and waiting for us. Emmas sister Hannah came with us so we could start her puppy shots and Hannah was just her normal happy self but you could see that she was watching over her sister. Dr. Leigh decided that it was HOD getting ugly with our little girl, they did a few tests and observed her for about 6 hours and her cries became louder. She was running a high fever also. Dr. Leigh

decided that Emma needed to start a new steroid treatment sequence again but her dosage was doubled from before. Her Gabapentin was changed to 3 times a day instead of 2. We got home and all I could do was watch over her. Any movement caused her excruciating pain and her cries told me so. I decided to put a soft pillow in a crate and her gently on top of it. I blew up an Aero bed so I could sleep by her so I could monitor her cries. It was a terrible night, neither one of us got any sleep. Hannah and my own pups all slept near her to watch over her. The next day June 22nd wasnt any better at all. I was making sure she stayed hydrated by giving her liquids via a syringe. The steroids haven't totally kicked in and there were those painful cries all day long. She did not change her position at any time unless I was holding her head so I could give her some liquid nourishment. Once again a very restless night of little sleep happened. So now its the 23rd, she's drinking a little on her own, still not wanting any food. She took a few steps to get to her special water bowl, relieved herself on the area rug to which I was so elated and happy that she tinkled. Then she lied in one position almost all day. The steroids and Gabapentin seem to be kicking in as Emma is not crying as much or as loudly as the past 2 days. So right now its 4 PM on the 23rd, shes lying down right next to me looking at me every once in a while with her beautiful sad puppy girl eyes. I am hoping tomorrow will be a more pain free day for her. I hope shell be able to sleep comfortably tonight and not cry in pain every 30 minutes. I hope that she will want a little bit of food. One good thing that happened today was that I got a few Emma kisses and several tail wags that I havent been seen for a couple of days so I am hoping and wishing things will look a little brighter tomorrow.

Please keep good thoughts for sweet Emma in your hearts and mind. If you are able to she would appreciate any donations towards her health care, every single dollar helps.

Pupdate 6/19/22: I am Emma and I would love to tell you a little about myself so here goes.

Whew, well I got so much better with the medications that the dogters gave me that the awesome Team Leader that picked me up and took me to the Emergency Vet in the middle of the night felt comfortable enough to let me go to my foster home. So here I am at Stickhorse Ranch and I've been here for a whole week with my sister Hannah. I have been acting like your typical almost 4 month puppy and I weigh 4 pounds and I have those sharp puppy teeth. My Birthday is February 25, 2022. Foster Mom occasionally catches me trying to steal and chew on her flip flops, the top of the plastic ramp (I am an excellent ramp climber upper to get on the couch or bed and I climb down really good too) and other stuff but she just tells me no and redirects me to something else to chew or play with. My favorite things right now is to play with my sister, steal my 2 foster brothers food, chewing on things, sleep and did I mention play? Sometimes I start it and sometimes Hannah starts it. We play pretty hard too. I love to be in the fenced in backyard so we can roll around in the grass and we do lots of playing there too. I am just starting to learn how to walk on the leash and I am not liking it one bit plus that concrete or asphalt gets really hot now that it is summer time and it can burn my cute little paw pads really quickly.

I will be going to the Dogter on June 24th to get my first set of shots and FM decided to do the shots that I need in 2 visits cuz I am still so young and small. I will also get more X-rays to see if there have been any changes in the growth of my bones due to HOD. I am hoping I wont have another bone growth episode because it might involve an emergency care visit and IVs and stuff cuz it just hurts, hurts so much that I don't even want to eat, drink, stand up, walk or even pee and poop. It is very serious when it does happen. I just want to lie there and cry in pain and I sure don't want to make my new FM to hear me cry because she will feel so helpless that she can not take my pain away. If you do not know about HOD there are so many articles that will help you learn about it on the world wide web. So I am hoping that my last episode on June 6th was just that,,, my last episode. But we will not know until the growth spurts start again. The HOD stuff is supposed to stop when I become full grown so I have got many more months and a couple more growth spurts to go to before I am fully grown. I am learning about potty training and those pee pee pads. I thought that it was a toy the first time I saw it and took off with it with my sister to play with it. Now I am learning to do my pee pee business on it. Im pretty good about the pee pee part now but I like to leave my poops in secret places that FM will find. Shell put a pee pee pad there but Ill just find a new spot to poop at. I sure keep her on her toes.

So lets get down to business of what Id like to have in my new home and with my new family. My adoption fee will be $1000.00. It would be really nice if you are a work from home person or retired. I am so young that if your are away for too long I might begin to feel really sad. I need a fur friend to play with, preferably about my size and kinda young. I don't think a senior fur friend will work cuz I have so much energy that I might make them upset when I will not stop trying to play with them. I am not crate trained and I don't like them. I love the doggie pen that sissy and I sleep in at night though. I need a fenced back yard and grass to play on and lots of toys. I love all toys. No children under 13 please. Parent(s) that will continue to teach me all the great things that will make me a perfect pupper. Lots of good food, I LOVE food. So far I eat lots of good quality kibble but FM has given me strawberries and cantaloupe, green beans and carrots, all those good healthy fruits and vegetables are yummy.

I will need to get spayed at the age of about 6 months. FM says that you will need to sign a waiver promising that you will have me spayed. I am not allowed to even have one litter of puppies so if that is what you have in mind for me please do not submit an application. She will also want to get a confirmation from your vet to know that I have been spayed. There are way too many puppies in our world and I don't want or need to add more burden to the problem we already have these days. You also need to be aware of that HOD thing so please get educated on HOD so you know what you might see in the future until I am all grown up. Please be aware that if it flairs up it can become expensive to treat but we are hoping that is all behind me.

So if you believe that I am the sweet baby girl puppy that you can love fur furever and have all those things I want and need please go to the bottom of this page and put in your application. FM looks at all the applications that come in for me and does home checks, vet reference checks, she might even call your people references as she wants the very best fur furever home for me. She does not go by when you put your application in. She goes by the very best application out of all of the ones that are submitted and she does her best to touch base with every person that submits an application.

Update 6/9/22: What a journey these angel babies have had. But after all of our efforts to get an answer as to why these babies were so painful, could not stand, were running fevers of 105...we got an answer. The radiologist asked us to take more x-rays of their long bones and there it was! Hannah and Emma have a very very very rare condition called HOD. This is seen quite often in German Shepherds, Weimaraners etc. Here is a description of the condition:

Metaphyseal osteopathy, previously termed hypertrophic osteodystrophy (HOD), is a disease of young (usually 3 to 6 months of age), growing dogs of the large and giant breeds (NOT usually seen at all in these small babies) that results in severe pain that is localized to the metaphysis of the long bones. Treatment is only supportive for hypertrophic osteodystrophy. When a puppy goes through an acute stage of the disease and fever is present, intravenous fluids are usually required to keep the baby hydrated and feeding tubes are used to give nutrition. Pain is controlled through narcotics and anti-inflammatories. Antibiotics are given sometimes to help in case there is a bacteria present. But as in all cases, you just have to wait until the crisis is over. Monthly exams and x-rays for each visit to recheck their affected bones are required until the HOD has subsided.

So Hannah and Emma were both up and standing after a week when I entered the ER last night! I went over and was given a flurry of kisses!! I was able to take them home last night as well. They are very responsive to steroids and pain medication which we are delighted to see. They will be closely monitored as the pattern seems to be every 3rd week according to the surrendering owner. Our hopes are that the steroids will keep the symptoms at bay so please send these precious little girls many prayers. As you know the critical care they received was so extremely high to the tune of over $8000. Without you and your love for our babies we would be able to make their lives matter...but they do. If you are able to donate please donate here on FB or go to our website at www.uyr.us, and use the donate button on the home page or under their respective bios on Looking for Love tab... and share this please!! The story of these two babies, Emma and Hannah, may touch the hearts of others that can also give.

Also know that, we will take applications for these babies once they are out of the woods. If you feel you will have the best home to offer them, please complete an online application.

Thank you, bless you and keep the prayers coming for these adorable angels~

Initial Bio 6/6/22: UYR's West Region team leader was called at 2:30am Monday morning. Two puppies were crying out in pain and the owner didn't know what to do anymore. We told her to get the babies to Veterinary Emergency Group and we would be there to take over.

So Meet Emma and Hannah. Two tiny little 3.5 month old puppies weighing in at 3lbs. Emma has been going to the ER since she was 3 weeks of age. She runs a fever, she develops a limp, then she becomes lethargic and won't stand. She also cannot move her bowels. After a few days she is able to potty then she's normal for 3 weeks more. Recently little Hannah is showing the same signs. Both babies' bloodwork looks fairly unremarkable. Their glucose is a little low, potassium a little low and their white blood cell counts indicate an infection of unknown cause. Both are now painful and crying out... it's so pitiful to see and hear!! Both do not want to stand, their tummies are gurgling and they just look at me with those eyes asking me to fix this. So fixing this, We will!! We have done bloodwork, x-rays, Parvo testing, fluids, glucose, the list goes on and on. And now we are on our way to the specialty group. We are in the process of moving them out of the ER to a specialty group with Internal Medicine. We once again have to go through the ER at the second center, as Internal Medicine is sooo crazy busy. Please help us, please please pray for these adorable little girls. We have really had our hands full with very very ill babies. We have spent about 3k for each girl at VEG, and we have more to go! Please use the link below to donate to help offset these expenses. We will keep you all posted on these babies and we pray we have an answer by tonight. Please share this so others may be able to help as well. Thank you all, bless you!

Finn

Finn

Meet Finn, a sweet 5 year old, 5 pound Yorkie boy being fostered in Austin, TX. Only Texas residents will be considered.

Initial Bio 9/17/2022: Meet Finn, a super sweet 5.5 lb boy who just joined the UYR family! This poor baby was found by a good Samaritan and dropped off at the local shelter, so we don't know much about his backstory. His age is estimated at about 5 years. He had a ruff week of waiting in the shelter, overwhelmed with all the other dogs and noises and not much one-on-one attention.

He went straight from the shelter to the vet, where he got the rest of his necessary shots, a much-needed bath and nail trim, and had bloodwork done. The poor little guy was too overwhelmed and dehydrated to give a urine sample, so we'll take one at home and drop it off to make sure he doesn't have a UTI.

Finn seems to be in good health, and is scheduled for a dental cleaning/neuter in early October. He's still figuring out the routine in his new foster home, but is really excited to follow his foster brother around everywhere. He seems to really like other dogs and has a playful side even this early in his foster stay. He likes treats but has been a bit picky about regular dog food, we're hoping as he settles in more he'll show more of an appetite. He also enjoys being petted and snuggling.


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

9/14/22 Pupdate: Hey hey hey UYR family and friends. Its time for a pupdate to let everybody know how I am doing. So lets see what has happened since my last pupdate.

I am now 6 months old and weigh about 11 pounds. I am a very happy girl and very much bonded with my little sister Emma. We play, eat, sleep, torture our FB together. FM has a lot and I mean a lot of toys here, toys that squeak, toys that crinkle and toys that do both, large toys and small toys but I like the small ones the best. Emma is always trying to steal it away from me and I just will not let go. So FM sees us playing with a stuff squeaky toy thats only about 5 inches long with Emma on one end and me on the other and she laughs so hard watching us play. I will not let Emma do anything on her own cuz I have to be right by her side. Sis and I wrestle a lot too and I like to chase and chew on my tail.

So lets talk about this HOD business I have been dealing with. This is a great article about HOD in case this is the first time you have ever heard of it.

https://www.petplace.com/article/dogs/pet-health/hypertrophic-osteodystrophy-hod-in-dogs/

Since my last visit with my regular Veterinarian I stayed with the Prednisone program they outlined for me. It seems to be working as in August and so far in September I did not have a severe attack that would send me to Emergency Veterinary Care. So FM is so happy I havent cried out in pain and was just a normal crazy puppy. On August 19, Sis and I went to go see an Internal Medicine Dogter. We got poked and prodded. They drew blood and checked that for several things. Everything looked normal. They were so surprised that we were diagnosed with HOD as it is very very rare for us little ones to get it. The Dogter revised my Prednisone program so I get weaned off of it very slowly. So I am about 3 weeks away from being all finished with that stuff which FM will be so happy with. Because of the Prednisone I feel so hungry all the time and FM loves rubbing my potbelly. So she breaks down my daily kibble to 3 meals. I get cottage cheese for a afternoon snack and then I get watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew and pineapple as a night time snack. Sometimes she will give me a rice cake in lieu of one of those. I think shes just trying to keep us feeling full and she thinks it is working. HOD will eventually leave my body as I become fully grown but there is a small chance I could have it for the rest of my life.

I am now UTD with all my vaccinations and only need to get spayed in the near future and possibly need to get some baby canine teeth pulled. Right now I have 8 of them and all of them are sharp sharp sharp. FM is still hoping the baby ones will fall out on their own.

On our next pupdate I will let everybody know what I need to have in my furever home. So please stay tuned for that. Also it would be great if you could share me with your friends and family. If you feel inclined to send us a donation towards my health care that would be pawsome as my care costs just keep going up and up. I am so grateful that UYR will go the distance for my healthcare and do anything to get and keep me healthy. You can donate via PayPal or a credit card at the link on the bottom of my page.

Puppy kisses from Hannah

7/24/22 Update: Wow, what a crazy month for me and FM. If I wasnt in a HOD episode my sister Emma was. I think there was maybe 5 days in the last 30 days that Emma and I both felt great together at the same time,,,then about on July 17th we both felt great together once again. So we are almost back to being 100% puppies, testing our boundaries, still trying to steal FMs flip flops and socks and the most fun is attacking her in the morning with our puppy kisses just so happy and ready to start a new pain free day. FM also learned that this HOD stuff will maybe mess with me when I get any type of vaccination as my autoimmune system could go into overdrive when the vaccinations are introduced into my system. So getting myself UTD with those vaccinations will take a while as my Dogter will not give me a shot when Im in the middle of a HOD episode, only when I am a healthy happy puppy will she give me a shot. I finally got my 2nd DHPP shot and my microchip about 2 weeks ago and my autoimmune system did react but it was pretty mild this time and I got over it fairly quickly and I. Just a few days. I also got my Rabies vaccination this past Friday so FM is watching me very closely in case my growth spurt HOD reappears. I think I only need one more DHPP booster. I am back to my happy normal puppy self and do have a prednisone and Gabapentin program in place due to the rabies vaccination. I overheard FM talking to her Boss Lady about making an appointment with an Internal Medicine Dogter, what ever that is but the word Dogter was heard loud and clear. I guess they want to make sure everything internally is growing properly because of my growth spurts. We wont get to see them until August 19th. tho. I dont seem to react as intensely to HOD as my sister Emma does and I am wondering if it is because I am bigger in size. I hope FM will ask the Dogter that question. Anyways I feel so much better these days. I am playing with my sis, sometimes torturing her cuz I think I am the head honcho here (Emma thinks she is the boss lady- HA HA) and FM just giggles at our playful antics here in the home. I love to explore the back yard and follow my FBs around. That those things that fly in the sky that are bigger than birds and make a funny noise intrigues me. I tried chasing one but I couldnt catch it. It rained some big raindrops last week and FM caught me running for the back door as I do not like to get wet. I dont seem to like rain but I love to try chase the water that comes out of the hose. FM said that in a couple of weeks she might take me into the pool. What is a pool? I only see a really really big water bowl in the middle of the back yard. My potty training is getting better. Now I mostly pee on those pads shes got everywhere around the house but I still occasionally have an accident on the rugs. My pooping outside skills are getting really good and Im learning to go to the door or just walking around in frantic circles in front of FM and shell let me out. She always does go outside with us cuz of all the other wild critters out here where we live. I am finding out that I like cantaloupe and watermelon, they are so sweet and delicious. Broccoli gives me gas and stinky after effects. I eat a lot and poop a lot because of the Prednisone when I am taking it. I love all toys and will steal any toy that FB and Emma are playing with. Emma and I usually end up playing tug of war with one toy eventually. So my life is really fabulous right now. Heres hoping for a great month ahead.

Foster Mom here, we would like to let everybody know that we will be holding off on adopting out Hannah until she is UTD on all her vaccinations and we get this HOD figured out and under control. This may just take a few weeks, a few months or even possibly longer. We will still be taking applications so if you feel that you can give this sweet girl a beautiful furever home with the possibility of future expensive vet care because of HOD, please fill an application out and send it in. If you dont mind maybe you could share our post and as usual if you are able to we could always use donations towards Hannahs growing medical care bill. Please use the link below this update.

Pupdate 6/30/22: EMMA AND HANNAH (TEXAS). LOOKING FOR DONATIONS.

Emmas and Hannahs Foster Mom here updating everyone on our sweet baby girls. Today it is Hannah that is not feeling that great at all. So how should I start this one this time? As soon as Emmas pupdate was added to her biography and posted just a few days ago Emma started to feel better as each day passed. But that awful HOD decided to get ugly with Hannah once again. This is Hannahs 2nd episode with HOD since her birth and she turned 4 months old on Saturday June 25th. So far it seems that Hannahs HOD episodes are not as severe or as frequently as Emmas but still very painful for several days. Sunday 6/26/2022 started out like any other day. HOT HOT HOT outside. With the wonderful exception that Emma finally is feeling so much better that she wants to play with the toys and with her sister. Hannah ate great, played like crazy with her sister Emma and was just her typical happy self until about Noon. I noticed that her gait was just a bit different, especially with her right front leg. So I picked her up she cried and I thought to myself, please no, not that HOD again. She crashed at about 3 PM. Did not want to eat, did not want to drink, no playing, no peeing or pooping. Every time I carried her outside she whimpered in pain, it didnt matter how careful I was, if I carried her in my arms, or cradled in a soft pillow as she made the most heartbreaking cries of pain. I would set her gently on the ground and she would just not move and lie there and look at me with those incredibly sad eyes and cry. No amount of coaxing could get her to walk. Emma was still on her steroids but we were at a place that the doses were every other day cuz we were weaning her off of them. She still had 2 days of doses of the gabapentin for her pain,,, so we borrowed a couple of Emmas steroid tablets, added Tramadol and Gabapentin and gave Hannah these meds at bedtime. I knew that in the morning both Susan, my Team Leader and myself would be calling CHEW Animal Clinic in the morning to request more Steroids and Tramadol as we had plenty of the liquid Gabapentin on hand. Both dogs gave me some ugly I dont like this stuff faces whenever I gave them the liquid Gabapentin. So I decided to taste test it and sure enough I even made an ugly face too and am so grateful that my Gabapentin comes in capsule form for us hoomans. During the night her whimpers became loud cries of pain and I became very worried for her. I called CHEW Animal Clinic first thing the next morning. Dr. Leigh and her staff were wonderful once again during yet another emergency for these 2 UYR babies. So Dr Leigh decided that Hannah needed to start a new steroid treatment. Plus her Gabapentin was changed to 3 times a day instead of 2 and they added Tramadol at 2-3 times a day depending on how much pain we thought Hannah was feeling. My husband John offered to drive to Dallas and pick up all the medications. (I am so lucky and grateful to have him as my partner in crime with my fosters and UYR.) All I could do was watch over Hannah and once again I just felt so helpless that I could not take her pain away. Any movement caused her excruciating pain and her cries told me so. I decided to put a soft pillow in a crate and Hannah gently on top the pillow. The Aero bed was still there from Emmas episode so now I could sleep by Hannah and could monitor her cries. It was a terrible night, neither one of us got any sleep. Emma and my own pups all slept near Hannah to watch over her. The next day, June 28th and this day also wasnt any better at all for Hannah or myself. Boy oh boy, did Emma feel so much better and just wanted to play play play with her sister. I was making sure Hannah stayed hydrated by giving her liquids via a syringe but there were only a few times that was needed. as she wanted to drink from her water bowl. Hannah seemed to enjoy her Rice and chicken mush every night and drank most of her special water from her bowl. The steroids, Tramadol and Gabapentin seem to be kicking in as Hannah was not crying as much or as loudly as in the past 2 days. So right now its 8 PM on the 29th shes lying down right next to me looking at me every once in a while with her beautiful sad puppy girl eyes as I try and distract Emma from the play mode. I am sure tomorrow will be a more pain free day for her. I hope shell be able to sleep comfortably tonight and not cry in pain occasionally . One great thing that happened during this entire episode was that I got so many Hannah kisses and lots of tail wags so I am so grateful and happy that Hannahs episode with HOD was not quite as severe as Emmas was. Please keep good thoughts for our sweet Hannah and little Emmas in your hearts and mind. If you are able to they both would appreciate and love any donations towards their health care, every donation is a blessing from all of you wonderful followers. All you have to do it hit the donate button to help Hannah, Emma and United Yorkie Rescue out.

They sure do like to write about themselves. You can also donate for them on the website

Pupdate 6/19/22:I am Hannah and I would love to tell you a little about myself so you can get to know me a little bit better.

Whew, well I got so much better with the medications that the dogters gave me that the awesome Team Leader that picked me up and took me to the Emergency Vet in the middle of the night felt comfortable enough to let me go to my foster home. So here I am at Stickhorse Ranch and Ive been here for a whole week with my sister Emma. I have been acting like your typical almost 4 month puppy and I weigh 6.5 pounds and I have those sharp puppy teeth. My Birthday is February 25, 2022. Foster Mom occasionally catches me trying to steal and chew on her flip flops, the top of the plastic ramp (I am an excellent ramp climber-upper to get on the couch or bed and I climb down really good too) and other stuff but she just tells me no and redirects me to something else to chew or play with. My favorite things right now is to play with my sister, steal my 2 foster brothers' food, chewing on things, sleep and did I mention play? Sometimes I start it and sometimes Emma starts it. We play pretty hard too. I love to be in the fenced in backyard so we can roll around in the grass and we do lots of playing there too. I am just starting to learn how to walk on the leash and I am not liking it one bit plus that concrete or asphalt gets really hot now that it is summer time and it can burn my cute little paw pads really quickly.

I will be going to the Dogter on June 24th to get my first set of shots and FM decided to do the shots that I need in 2 visits cuz I am still so young and small. I will also get more X-rays to see if there have been any changes in the growth of my bones due to HOD. I am hoping I wont have another bone growth episode because it might involve an emergency care visit and IVs and stuff cuz it just hurts, hurts so much that I dont even want to eat, drink, stand up, walk or even pee and poop. It is very serious when it does happen. I just want to just lie there and cry in pain and I sure dont want to make my new FM to hear me cry because she will feel so helpless that she can not take my pain away. If you do not know about HOD there are so many articles that will help you learn about it on the world wide web. So I am hoping that my last episode on June 6th was just that,,, my last episode. But we will not know until the growth spurts start again. The HOD stuff is supposed to stop when I become full grown so I have got many more months and a couple more growth spurts to go to before I am fully grown. I am learning about potty training and those pee pee pads. I thought that it was a toy the first time I saw it and took off with it with my sister to play with it. Now I am learning to do my pee pee business on it. Im getting pretty good about the pee pee part now and I like to poop outside. Ive only had two poop accidents in the house but several pee pee accidents. I am getting much better though. I have gotten so much better with the pee pee pads than a week ago, so I think I will be house trained in no time.

So lets get down to business of what I would like to have in my new home and with my new family. My adoption fee will be $1000.00. It would be really nice if you are a work from home person or retired. I am so young that if your are away for too long I might begin to feel really sad. I need a fur friend to play with, preferably about my size and kinda young. I dont think a senior fur friend will work cuz I have so much energy that I might make them upset when I will not stop trying to play with them and I am pretty persistent about wanting to play. I am not crate trained and I dont like them. I love the doggie pen that sissy and I sleep in at night though. I need a fenced back yard and grass to play on and lots of toys. I love all toys. No children under 13 please. Parent(s) that will continue to teach me all the great things that will make me a perfect little pupper. Lots of good food, I LOVE food. So far I eat lots of good quality kibble but FM has given me strawberries and cantaloupe, green beans and carrots, all those good healthy fruits and vegetables are so yummy that I love them all so far.

I will need to get spayed at the age of about 6 months. FM says that you will need to sign a waiver promising that you will have me spayed. I am not allowed to even have one litter of puppies so if that is what you have in mind for me please do not submit an application. She will also want to get a confirmation from your vet to know that I have been spayed. There are way too many puppies in our world and I dont want or need to add more burden to the problem we already have these days. You also need to be aware of that HOD thing so please get educated on HOD so you know what you might see in the future until I am all grown up. Please be aware that if it flairs up it can become expensive to treat but we are hoping that is all behind me.

So if you believe that I am the sweet baby girl puppy that you can love fur furever and have all those things I want and need please go to the bottom of this page and put in your application. FM looks at all the applications that come in for me and does home checks, vet reference checks, she might even call your people references as she wants the very best fur furever home for me. She does not go by when you put your application in. She goes by the very best application out of all of the ones that are submitted and she does her best to touch base with every person that submits an application.

Update 6/9/22: What a journey these angel babies have had. But after all of our efforts to get an answer as to why these babies were so painful, could not stand, were running fevers of 105...we got an answer. The radiologist asked us to take more x-rays of their long bones and there it was! Hannah and Emma have a very very very rare condition called HOD. This is seen quite often in German Shepherds, Weimaraners etc. Here is a description of the condition:

Metaphyseal osteopathy, previously termed hypertrophic osteodystrophy (HOD), is a disease of young (usually 3 to 6 months of age), growing dogs of the large and giant breeds (NOT usually seen at all in these small babies) that results in severe pain that is localized to the metaphysis of the long bones. Treatment is only supportive for hypertrophic osteodystrophy. When a puppy goes through an acute stage of the disease and fever is present, intravenous fluids are usually required to keep the baby hydrated and feeding tubes are used to give nutrition. Pain is controlled through narcotics and anti-inflammatories. Antibiotics are given sometimes to help in case there is a bacteria present. But as in all cases, you just have to wait until the crisis is over. Monthly exams and x-rays for each visit to recheck their affected bones are required until the HOD has subsided.

So Hannah and Emma were both up and standing after a week when I entered the ER last night! I went over and was given a flurry of kisses!! I was able to take them home last night as well. They are very responsive to steroids and pain medication which we are delighted to see. They will be closely monitored as the pattern seems to be every 3rd week according to the surrendering owner. Our hopes are that the steroids will keep the symptoms at bay so please send these precious little girls many prayers. As you know the critical care they received was so extremely high to the tune of over $8000. Without you and your love for our babies we would be able to make their lives matter...but they do. If you are able to donate please donate here on FB or go to our website at www.uyr.us, and use the donate button on the home page or under their respective bios on Looking for Love tab... and share this please!! The story of these two babies, Emma and Hannah, may touch the hearts of others that can also give.

Also know that, we will take applications for these babies once they are out of the woods. If you feel you will have the best home to offer them, please complete an online application.

Thank you, bless you and keep the prayers coming for these adorable angels~

Initial Bio 6/6/22: UYR's West Region team leader was called at 2:30am Monday morning. Two puppies were crying out in pain and the owner didn't know what to do anymore. We told her to get the babies to Veterinary Emergency Group and we would be there to take over.

So Meet Emma and Hannah. Two tiny little 3.5 month old puppies weighing in at 3lbs. Emma has been going to the ER since she was 3 weeks of age. She runs a fever, she develops a limp, then she becomes lethargic and won't stand. She also cannot move her bowels. After a few days she is able to potty then she's normal for 3 weeks more. Recently little Hannah is showing the same signs. Both babies' bloodwork looks fairly unremarkable. Their glucose is a little low, potassium a little low and their white blood cell counts indicate an infection of unknown cause. Both are now painful and crying out... it's so pitiful to see and hear!! Both do not want to stand, their tummies are gurgling and they just look at me with those eyes asking me to fix this. So fixing this, We will!! We have done bloodwork, xrays, Parvo testing, fluids, glucose, the list goes on and on. And now we are on our way to the specialty group. We are in the process of moving them out of the ER to a specialty group with Internal Medicine. We once again have to go through the ER at the second center, as Internal Medicine is sooo crazy busy. Please help us, please please pray for these adorable little girls. We have really had our hands full with very very ill babies. We have spent about 3k for each girl at VEG, and we have more to go! Please use the link below to donate to help offset these expenses. We will keep you all posted on these babies and we pray we have an answer by tonight. Please share this so others may be able to help as well. Thank you all, bless you!

Pam Roberts, Ami Miller Hayden, Angela Senger, Teresa Johnson, Karry Rogers, Patsy Wynne, Angela Joy Stephens, Marsha Butler

Initial Bio 8-25-22: Welcome this sweet senior boy to United Yorkie Rescue. When Kodas family of 18 years found themselves in a position to no longer care for him how could we say no. Can you imagine being 18 and your life being turned upside down? The good news is that for an older guy he is really working hard to make the best of the situation. Our first task was to catch up on our good hygiene. Koda was groomed (shaved) and had a pedicure. He is feeling much better and getting around a little quicker. He is slowly learning the lay of his new home and making friends with the other pups in the household. His eyesight and his hearing appear to be limited but his sense of smell when the treats or food come out is still 100%!!! Although Koda will be safe and loved for the rest of his days we also want to make sure we are providing the best care possible. He has had a senior blood panel (results pending), he also needs a good dental exam and cleaning. If we can help him with his eyesight, we would like to and of course maintain his routine care. Although Koda is 18 we dont want to compromise on his needs.

Koda has not been up for a good photo session just yet but foster mom is working on that. More to come!

If you would like to help us help Koda please consider a donation towards his care. Your support is so appreciated because without it we cant give guys like Koda a soft place to call home.


To date we've spent $432.73 on Koda's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $595 in donations.

Texas
Lillabeth

Meet Lillabeth, a precious 5-7 year old, 5 pound Yorkie girl being fostered in Sherman TX. Only Texas residents will be considered.

9/30/22 Initial Bio: Lillabeth is the perfect pocket pet Princess! She is 7 years old and weighs a whopping 4.2 pounds. She is all personality. She met her new foster by giving her kisses. She is compliant, housetrained, leash trained, and crate trained. She is up-to-date on her shots. On October 5th, Lilly will have her dental, so her kisses will be extra sweet. Then, the following week, she will have her spay surgery. She will also be microchipped. So far, she is not a barker and minds very well. She is a cuddle-bug and a lover and wants nothing more than to be held and loved on. Belly rubs are her most favorite things, and she just goes off to la la land! She likes men and women equally. She will not be adopted to a family with children under 12 due to her small size and vulnerability. She gets along well with all dogs in the foster home. Cats are an unknown. She would do best with a family whose pets are in her size group.


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

Pupdate 9/25/22: Hello UYR family and to my wonderful donors! I have excellent news to share about my recent surgery. It has been almost two weeks since I had to go "under the knife" for my hernia and just got my stitches and staples out yesterday! I was fortunate to be in some of the best hands in the business for what turned out to be a very invasive surgery due to the severity of my hernia. Luckily, the doctor was able to get everything tracked down and stitched up to contain my bulging .The doctor also noticed that I had already been spayed, so no need to address that. This was great because it allowed the doc to spend a little more time on my teeth. Although they were really bad from initial examination, the doctor was able to get them all cleaned up and didn't even have to extract one single tooth! Now my smile is bright and clean and still full of teeth. Emoji The doctor also looked in depth to my ears to see how my treatment was coming along. She was able to remove some of the growths and could even see down inside. This is amazing news - so much so that I may not have to have any additional surgeries!! I still have to have those terrible drops in my ears twice a day, but they seem to be helping immensely.

My personality is beginning to come out more as I am more comfortable in my foster home. I really enjoy playing with my stuffed toys and snuggling next to my foster parents (especially mom). I now sleep in bed with them through the night without a peep and I am getting much better with my potty training. I enjoy going out with my foster siblings to learn what good boys and girls do. Foster mom and dad just have to pay attention to my signals and I go outside every time. If they miss a signal, I am almost always guaranteed to use a potty pad. Foster mom says I'm a heartbreaker and one lucky adopter is going to fall in love with me immediately. Looking forward to beginning my new forever life!

8/28/22 Initial Bio: Hello UYR friends and family I would like to introduce you to one of our newest and tiniest rescue babies Minnie! Minnie was recently surrendered to a Texas shelter as a stray. Thankfully one of the shelter employees reached out to UYR to ask if we could help this sweet tiny girl since she was desperately in need of medical care and TLC due to what appears to have been years of severe neglect.

One of UYR team members picked this tiny girl up from the shelter and after a much-needed bath, took her to see to a veterinarian friend that was kind enough to see her after hours.

Minnie had terribly inflamed and infected ears due to years of untreated ear infections. The infection got so bad that it caused bumps on the outside of her ears as well as huge lump behind her left ear that the doctor says is from her inflamed and infected ear canal. Unfortunately this sweet little girl has also been living with a hernia. Minnie is in desperate need of a dental cleaning, as her teeth are also infected. The doctor started her on antibiotics, a steroid, and much needed ear medication.

Minnie arrived at her foster home on Sunday and quickly made herself at home by getting to know her foster parents and siblings. Her foster parents report that the medications seem to be helping with the ear condition, as they look a little better each day and she seems to be gaining some of her hearing back. Minnie is eating very well and loves to play with toys and even chew on a bully bone now and then. Most of all she likes to be on, or next to her humans most of the time. Minnie weighed 4.5 LBS at her last vet visit and is estimated to be approximately seven years old. She is scheduled for her first surgery on Tuesday August 30th. The doctor will repair her hernia, spay (if needed), and will also try to complete a dental, depending on how long the other two surgeries take. Minnie will also need to have an ear surgery; however the doctor wants to give the medication some more time to work prior to scheduling that. Please keep this tiny girl in your thoughts and we will keep you updated as she continues to heal and we get to know her better. Please consider a donation to UYR to help with her mounting medical bills.

Theo
Texas
Theo

Meet Theo, a precious 1.5 year old, 7 pound Yorkie boy being fostered in Killeen, TX. Only Texas applicants will be considered.

THANK YOU TO THEO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sharon Alexander

9/23/22 Initial Bio: Precious Theo came to us as a medical case from a local shelter. He was found as a stray and apparently had been attacked by another dog, or animal with canines. Theo had several puncture wounds all over his body, & additionally, he is healing from a small fracture on one of his ribs, which is also a result of the attack. Everything has been bandaged and is healing nicely, with bandage changes every few days.

Not only does poor Theo need to heal from the attack, but he also came into the shelter with a severe flea and tick infestation, which caused him to be anemic. The shelter gave him medication for the flea infestation, and once he could come into rescue, Theo had to be sedated and shaved down for the removal of close to 200 ticks on his tiny body and in his ears.

Theo will require close observation to ensure his rib and wounds are healing, and that his bloodwork gets back on track from the anemia.

Despite all this, he is the absolute sweetest dog, and a loving little boy who enjoys being with his humans, along with his foster mom's fur brothers and sister! Theo will need a dental and a neuter but, cannot undergo this procedure until he is fully healed from his wounds & anemia.

Please continue to watch for updates on this sweet boy.


To date we've spent $132.86 on Theo's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $150 in donations.

Braxton

Meet Braxton a cute 4 year old, Yorkie boy being fostered near Stafford, VA.

My name is Braxton and I'm 4 years old. My mom didn't have time for me so I'm looking for another family to love.

My next family will need patience as I'm not housebroken and love to mark all over my foster mom's house. I came from a single-dog home but am having a good time with my foster mom's dogs. I love to go on car rides, walks, sit on your lap, come when called, snuggle up in bed, and I'm great at barking. I'm in the process of getting vetted and will need a neuter surgery before going to my furever home.


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

THANK YOU TO SEARCY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Trula Montgomery, Sandy Pagnotta, Raelyn Skultety, Carol Gostomski

o9/28/22 Update: Searcy is still looking for his Forever Home. He is the sweetest boy and loves everyone he meets! When we are out on a walk he stops to visit with everyone he sees. Searcy still cannot live with any other animals in the house, but he is friendly with other nice dogs out on his walks. He also is good with all the children in the neighborhood. Searcy would do fine with children 8 years and older, who know how to treat dogs and have lived with a dog before.

Please read all Searcy’s previous bios to understand him and his needs fully.

7/29/22 Update: Searcy is still waiting for his Forever Home. He absolutely loves his walks! He needs one walk after he eats is the morning (he eats around 5:00 am) and then one after he eats dinner (he eats around 5:00 pm). He is a very nice walker. Searcy may be 11.5 years old, but he acts more like a 7 year old dog!

Searcy can be left alone for long periods of time. He just lays down and relaxes while his person/people are gone. Weve already left him for 10 hours without any issues.

Please read Searcys previous bios to get the full scoop on him. If this sweet boy sounds like a good fit for you, please fill out an application for him.

5/27/22 Update: Searcy here! Im still looking for my Furever Home, so if youre out there Please fill out an application for me.

My eating times have become more regular, which is a good thing. I now eat breakfast at 5:00 - 5:15am and supper at 5:00pm. I still like my 1/8 cup of food around 2:00pm just to hold me over.

I still need to walk twice a day, usually at around 7:00am and again after eating supper. I will let you know when I need to go by staring at youthat seems to be my signal for eating also.

I forgot to mention, I do not like riding in the car.

Please read my previous bios, to get all the information, to decide if I would be a good fit for your lifestyle.

4/14/22 Update: Hi its me Searcy!

Foster mom told me that I am doing so much better! I haven't been so demanding, and that was my big problem. You still need to walk me twice a day, but its been on their terms more than mine...Same goes for feedings. I still have to work on that, but I'm Much better!

I'm a Great walker and just Love to be outside! I may be 11 years old, but you would Absolutely think I am no older than 5 years! I don't bark at dogs or children when I'm out and about on my walks. They can be barking at me, and I just walk on by.

I have been so good when foster mom and dad leave the house. I just lay in the chair until they come home. I do all of my business outside. Foster mom does not worry at all that I will potty inside.

There are some bell sounds and dinging sounds that trigger barking, but a stern No pretty much gets me to stop. If you love walking and want a sweet boy by your side, please fill out an application.

3/18/22 Update: Searcy is doing really well and is the sweetest boy. He is ready for his Forever Family! He will need a couple of weeks to adjust to a new home, so he needs someone with patience.

When he needs to out he will let you know. He wont stop whimpering, until you let him out. He wants to do his business outside. If he has been out, and then wont stop barking at you, he wants to go for a walk. Wait until he stops barking before you take him. You dont want him to get into the habit of continuous barking to get his way. From what we figured out, he likes to poop on a walk and not in the yard.

Searcy Loves, Loves, Loves going for walks! He would walk Forever if you let him! He Absolutely needs to walk twice a day no matter what the weather is like. So please consider that before you fill out an application. He may be 11 years old, but acts more like 6 years old. He is Very handsome and Healthy!

Searcy does need to stay on the gastrointestinal prescription diet he is currently on. I tried another food, but it caused him to be very anxious, so I switched him back. He eats anywhere between 4:00 - 5:00 am and then again between 4:00 - 5:00pm. He gets a partial feeding at around 1:30/2:00 in the afternoon. This schedule works well for him. He will whimper when he wants to eat. I am the primary feeder, so he whimpers at me when hes hungry. He goes to my husband for his walks. Both of us when he needs to go outside.

We have left him alone twice for about 3 - 4 hours, and both times he just slept in a chair. He has the run of the house, unless we are gone, then he stay in the gated TV room. Please read his prior bio for more information.

3/8/22 Update: Its been awhile since my adventure to WI. It was a long trip and took me some time to settle down. I was a little anxious. So I may have acted out a bit. My new Foster mom and dad have been very patient with me, taking the time to get to know me and my little quarks. They say I may be 11 yrs old but I act like a 6 yr old. I have special food that I eat and foster mom says I do best on this food and doesn't feel it should be changed anytime soon or if at all. I love to go on walks and I let my fosters know when I am ready to go. I get very excited on my walks but when I'm ready to stop I just lay down and rest sometimes my foster dad will carry me for a little while, but I get heavy so I have to start walking again but that's ok I don't mind. Foster mom says I am very good at letting them know when I have to go potty, for my poops I must be walked and just like the postman thru rain, sleet, or snow. I like to be in bed with my fosters. I will also spend time with them watching TV. I like to know where they are at all times. But enjoy my time resting alone as well. Either foster mom or dad have been home with me all the time and that's the way I like it. But if they have to go somewhere I will wait patiently for them to return. I am really smart if I do say so myself, I will sit lay down and shake on command. I love to play in the snow as well. I have had all my shots, but foster mom will be taking me to the dogtor on the 18th just to get a good overall check. Please keep an eye out for when I am ready to be adopted.

1/22/22 Update: Today Searcy took the ride of a lifetime. He was transferred to a foster home in Wisconsin so he could be an only dog with lots of attention. He took his first airplane ride and we want to thank Pilots for Paws for their amazing help to get Searcy transferred today.

Updated Bio 1/19/22

Searcy is a healthy, sweet, smart and playful guy who is up to date on all vet care and is ready for adoption. He really enjoys the outdoors and loves to run and play fetch. Searcy walks well on a leash and gets excited to go for walks. He is not a fan of car travel and can get a bit anxious but does not get car sick. Searcy is house trained and will go to the door to let you know he is ready to go. He loves to spend quality time with his person and hang out on the couch watching TV or doing whatever as long as he is by your side. He enjoys sleeping at night by his person but will also sleep on the couch. He really isn't to keen on a dog bed. Searcy wants to be the center of your attention and he does not get along well with other dogs or cats. If your looking for an only dog who has lots of love to give then Searcy is your guy!

Initial Bio 12/26/21:

Searcy Just came into rescue. So far we have observed that is is super smart, house trained and likes to play. He is not fond of car rides, other dogs or cats. Searcy's ideal home would be one where he is the center of attention someone who is home most or all of the time. He loves outside and likes to go for walks. He is a beautiful yorkie with chocolate/hazel eyes. Searcy was given up because his owners had a baby and Searcy didn't like being the center of attention anymore. For this reason he also can not go to a home with Children under 12. If your are interested in this beautiful boy please email foster mom or fill out an application.
