05/19/20. It took some work searching, time, and some miles driven,but The Steckers helped me find my forever family all the way in Wichita Falls!

I hit the jackpot!

I am going to live on two acres out in the country. I have my own golf cart to go on rides with my new mom and dad, and I even have my own dog 🐕 park fenced and covered with a sun mesh to protect me from birds of prey.

My mom Olga cried tears of joy because she saw that sparkle in my eye when I met my new parents. I will be going to the lake in the RV where they say we will be having some fun! I will have a cat brother, but I will be an only child in the house and the apple of their eye! Thank you to everyone who showed interest and prayed for me.

Pearl (aka Princess TX)

5-16-20 Pearl has been adopted! She will be spending her best years with the most amazing new parents. Both are retired and have all the time in the world to ensure Pearl has the love, care, and support she so desperately deserves. Her forever home has the most beautiful shaded backyard with lots of grass and room for Pearl to practice her "sprints" without the worry of running into any danger. Her new parents will shower her with attention and will be there to help her cope with her blindness. She came to their home with her newly donated Muffin's Halo which will help her to learn her new surroundings without the danger of accidentally getting hurt. Foster mom and dad could not be happier with Pearl's new family and are super appreciative of Muffin's Halo for their generous donation. Nothing but smiles and wagging tails for Pearl from here on out.

Zariah gets a treat from her new mommy. They love each other.

4-25-20 Zariah was adopted today. Zariah was once a beloved companion pup until her owner's life situation suddenly changed, and due to this, she could no longer care for Zariah. She knew that Zariah deserved a better life. She reached out to United Yorkie Rescue and we were able to get her and give her the life she deserved. Zariah was loved by everyone she met and who met her, but her foster mommy was looking for that one special family to give Zariah her perfect forever home. Today that happened and Zariah was adopted into her perfect family. She has a fur friend about her age and size, she has a fenced yard to run around in, and she has a wonderful new mommy and daddy who will love her forever. We are so happy for Zariah, lovingly called ZeZe.

Skittles and her new mom and dad. How happy they all are.

4/25/20 Skittles was adopted today. A very happy ending for a little girl who had a rough beginning. She was taken from the shelter by United Yorkie Rescue. She arrived at the shelter matted, with very itchy skin, a discharge from both eyes, and a distended stomach. The shelter immediately started her on antibiotics. She received eye drops twice daily and they gave her an antibacterial bath. She also was circling in distress and it got worse the longer she stayed in the shelter. United Yorkie Rescue came to her rescue as soon as we found out about her. Watching her behavior, it is very likely that Skittles had been caged for long periods of time. Being in her foster home Skittles began to slowly improve. The spinning got better, and her health improved. Finally, Skittles was ready to be adopted and go to her forever home. Today it happened. Skittles found her furever home and will never be neglected again. Her new mom and dad love her to pieces and are dedicated to helping Skittles, now Abby, become the best pup she can be. She has a fur brother, but best of all for Skittles she has a fenced yard. Skittles loves to run around, and a fenced yard is her happy place. Skittles, we are so happy for you, you found your wonderful happy tails ending.

Princess and her forever mom. So happy.

4-22-20 Pretty Princess was adopted today! It took a long time and two operations, but finally Princess went to her forever home. Princess was with her foster mom for several months and it was hard to say good-bye but she knew Princess would now have a mom who would be able to be with her all day, everyday. Princess came to us needing emergency life saving surgery. When she finally healed from that, we found that she needed another surgery to remove mammary tumors. Finally, in spite of a pandemic, Princess was ready for her forever home. Taking all precautions necessary to stay safe, Princess was adopted by her forever mom. Princess will be an only dog, which is exactly what she wanted, with her stay at home mom. Princess is ready to get all that love and attention. Happy Tails to our pretty Princess.

Maui and her forever mom and dad and sister

4/22/20 Maui was adopted today. Maui was sadly surrendered by her family to the shelter when they could no longer take care of her. She has some medical issues that the shelter started treating. She had a large mammary tumor removed. Thank goodness the pathology showed no cancer. Maui biggest issue, though, was her skin condition. Maui's came to United Yorkie Rescue with itchy flaky skin from allergies. This was treated and she improved, then had to be treated again and again improved, and then treated once more again and once again improved. It is more than likely going to be an ongoing issue. Mauis foster mom was she that Maui may even need to go to a doggie dermatologist to figure out what was going on with Maui. Maui is such a sweetheart, but who would want a dog with an issue that may need a lifetime of treatment and care and vet visits. But someone did, someone wanted to make Maui a part of their family, someone was ready to love and care for Maui for the rest of her life. Maui now has a stay at home mom and dad and a fur sister who is about her same age and size. Maui couldn't have found a better home for her forever in the whole world. And Maui's world will be filled with everything she could ever want or need. Happy Forever to you, Maui.

Dusty Rose and her forever mom. Happy life ahead for Dusty Rose.
Dusty Rose

4/10/20 Dusty Rose was adopted today. Before Dusty came into United Yorkie Rescue, this little girlie has already been in two homes through no fault of her own. She was surrendered to UYR due to house-training issues. Dusty is just a year old and puppies need consistency. They need to be allowed to go out often so that they will learn what is and is not appropriate and where to do their business. Both of her former homes were unable to provide this consistency due to work schedules. Things changed when she came to United Yorkie Rescue. With a lot of consistency and training in her foster home, Dusty Rose made a lot of progress. She loves to walk and she loves to play. Dusty Rose loves all people, kitty cats, and other dogs. Dusty Rose is just one great puppy who only needed the right forever home. Today Dusty went to that great forever home. She has a perfect stay at home mom and dad. She will get to sleep in her new mom and dad's bed. She will go on long walks, and most of all she will get the continued training she still needs. She will get to travel with them in their motor home and meet new people and make new fur friends. Dusty Rose will have the best life ever. This special puppy found her forever happily ever after.

Hi, I am so lucky. I have the best forever home ever.

4/6/10 Sandi is adopted. Sandi found her most perfect forever home. This sweet girl who came to us on Halloween came with some behavior issues. She loved her people, but wasn't fond of strangers and others she didn't know well. She was sometimes okay with other dogs and sometimes she wasn't. Sandi had some serious behavior training with some wonderful trainers and her foster parents worked very very hard with her. Sandi also worked hard and made some good progress. It paid off because today she was adopted by the most wonderful mom ever. She has a perfect mom who is going to take her to work with her and give her the best care. Most of all she is going to love Sandi forever and no matter what she will make sure Sandi gets everything she needs to be a happy dog. She gets to have a home with a nice fenced yard and lots of toys and doggie beds and good healthy food. Sandi is such a lucky girl. She couldn't have asked for a better home and a more loving foster mom.
