Baloo found his forever home. Lucky boy.
Baloo

7-26-17 Baloo was adopted today. This adorable senior boy found his forever and perfect home. Baloo became a United Yorkie Rescue dog because there was this young dog in his former home that was not being very nice to Baloo. He wanted Baloo to play with him all the time and although Baloo is a young 11 year old fellow, he no longer had the energy of a puppy and he was just so unhappy. Baloo's mom knew Baloo needed a quiet, calm home where he would be the only dog. And today that is exactly what happened. Baloo has a wonderful stay at home mom and dad. He will be the only pup in the home and he will be showered with so much love and affection. There will be no other dogs bothering him or getting in the way of Baloo getting his mom and dad's attention. It will all belong to Baloo and no one else. Baloo found the perfect home to spend the rest of his life in. Could anything be better for this pup? The answer to that is No, this is the best thing ever.

Maddie

7-22-17 Maddie was adopted today. This sweet, adorable girl has finally found her final and forever home. Maddie is a sweet Silky Yorkie girl that loves to be hugged and kissed. She is an amazing dog and Foster Mom has nothing but great things to say her about her, yet she has somehow found herself going from home to home to home in her short 3 years of life. In fact she has been in more homes than she has been alive on this earth. But now Maddie has found her forever home at last. She has a wonderful new mom and a stay at home aunt. There is a perfect fenced yard for sunning and running. Maddie is their only pup and will be the center of their lives. She will get all the love and care and cuddles and kisses she wants. She will have a life filled with more happiness then she ever knew. Happy Tails, Maddie, you are home at last.

Christian

Christian and His Furever- A happy little boy I left today with his Mom. You know, that little feller remember exactly where he was going. You see, he met his mom 2 weeks ago before his big neuter. They played under the big trees and met some fur neighbors that day, and this little boy did not forget. He knew he was home as soon as we turned into the drive. Christian jumped out of the car, walked right across the street, tinkled on the bush, then ran right up the stairs to his door. Mom was ready and so was big sister and a little niece. Everyone was down on the floor playing and getting acquainted. He checked out all the rooms, and when he saw his new leash, he began to jump at Mom and she took him outside where he went right out to the big tree and marked it his! I left a happy tail, a happy mom and two giggling girls as they were all playing with their new little buddy, and boy was he having a wonderful time! Happy Tails little Christian, you are home!

Georgie and his new mom and dad and sister
Georgie

7-14-17 Georgie has been adopted!!! Georgie sure is one lucky pup. He now has his forever family. When they came in the house Georgie he was so happy to meet them. He sat on laps and covered them with his sweet kisses. He is already bonded with his new daddy and they will be the best of buddies. His new mommy works from home so he will have her home with him all day to work on his puppy training and to love on him. Georgie just could not get enough of his new mommy. He even has a new little sister to play with. She may be smaller but she is his big sister and she will make sure he knows she is the puppy boss of him. This sure was a “love at first sight” all around. Foster Mommy will truly miss this little love but could not be happier for Georgie. Georgie went from wandering alone and scared on the streets to the loving arms and home of his very own family. He sure hit the jackpot. You are a very, very, lucky Georgie boy.

Coco will have a wonderful forever life
Coco

7-6-17 Coco has got to be the luckiest puppy in the world. This very sick 5-pound, 6 month old baby girl was not doing well at all. She was probably a week away from never seeing her 7th month when good fortune smiled on this puppy from so many people and places. Her owners knew she needed more care than they could give her and surrendered her to United Yorkie Rescue. That was the first great thing to happen. Coco's foster mom was her second fortunate thing. She knew this puppy was very sick and knew she needed to be at the vet's office first thing that next morning and couldn't wait longer than that. Her foster mom sat up with this puppy, who was most likely in pain from open sores on her head, legs, and body soothing her all night long. When Coco arrived at the clinic the next morning fate once again smiled brightly on this little puppy. Her vet knew how sick she was and immediately started her care. At that point the other vet came into the room, took one look at Coco and knew this little pup had to be hers forever. And so, Coco was adopted by her veterinarian, who will love and care for Coco her whole life. Could anything better happen for this little puppy? Coco will have this wonderful person to love her and take care of her for her life. Coco has a long road of recovery ahead of her before she is well, but she is safe in the arms of her new mommy who will do everything in the world to give Coco the Puppy the best life ever.

Zen found FUREVER!
Zen

7/2/17. Zen and furever have finally met! Zen got up bright and early this morning, had breakfast, a trim and a bath, stopping by the front porch to take one last pic for foster and then he was off in search of furever. Thirty minutes later he pulled up into the drive way of the most wonderful family! There were 2 pups, a brother 4 and a sister 9 for Zen to play with, TWO teenagers that would be his furever friends and one was to be Zen's bestie furever and two wonderful parents. We all sat outside on the ground and played and got to know each other. There was a big fenced yard where all the pups could play and a big deck to rest on when the grass was wet. Zen's bestie is allergic to some pups, but Zen's new mom said she breaks out in just a few minutes if there is an allergy problem . . Guess what? There was not a problem at all. Such a happy tail this is. See, that's Zen's new Bestie holding him. They instantly loved each other. Recently it was discovered Zen had been with a teenager before having to be turned into the shelter. What more could this pup ask for than to have TWO teenagers to love him and keep him with them fur the rest of their lives. Leaving, I looked back, and one happy tail was headed to the kitchen for water and a snack! Welcome home, Zen.

Gigi

7/1/17 Gigi was adopted today. She was owned by a loving senior couple, but due to circumstances, they were no longer able to care for her. A family member took Gigi into their home; however, because they work long hours, Gigi was crated 8-10 hours a day. Due to their travel schedule, Gigi was boarded weeks and weekends often. They wanted Gigi to have a better life with a family that could engage her and surround her with love. Gigi then became a United Yorkie Rescue dog and although she was happy in her foster home she really wanted a forever home to cal her own. Today this happened for this sweet, friendly, and a lovely little girlie. She has a stay at home daddy and a mommy who is home a lot of the time. There is a wonderful fenced backyard, perfect for a young pup who still loves to run and sun in the safety of a nice yard.She will get lots of walks and play time with her mom and dad and other doggie friends. Even their vacations will be planned with Gigi in mind, so this little baby will get to go on vacation too. How could life get any better for Gigi? It can't!

Jerry

6-24-17 Jerry was adopted today. This fellow has been though so much. When he first came to United Yorkie Rescue he was a pretty sick little fellow. It was found that his liver levels were too high, his liver was also enlarged, and he was pretty lethargic. There was a concern that the was failing. After 3 months of medication and blood work his levels have come down and although they are not perfect he is getting better. But none of that mattered to his new mom and dad. They already love him so much and it's okay that he will have to be on medication for his liver for the rest of his days. He is their baby and whatever he needs they will do for him. Jerry found his perfecto forever family. He even has a fur brother and sister and when they met it was also love. Kisses were exchanged all around. Jerry will have the best care and all the love he could ever want for the rest of his life. Hooray for Jerry.

Bailey

6-25-17 Bailey is still very much a puppy at only 1-1/2 years old. This poor little fellow, before the age of 2 years old, has already had three different homes in his young life. His last owners loved him very much, but their job situation changed and Bailey was being left alone for long hours. They wanted him to be happy and have a better life, so they surrendered him to UYR. He loved his foster home and the older kids who lived there because being such a young dog he loved to play. He also learned how to walk nicely on a leash and on these great walks everyone he met was his friend no matter if they had 2 feet or 4 he loved them all. All Bailey lacked was a forever home to call his own. Bailey got that today. He has a wonderful new life with a fur sister just about his age and a great new dad who is even a stay at home kind of dad. Bailey will have so much fun playing with his fur sister. He will get to go on long walks with his dad and his sister. His life will be full of love and fun, and don't forget the toy box full of doggie toys, the doggie beds that are ready for him, and probably lots of treats, and for sure lots and lots of love and kisses.

Hope and her new family
Hope

6-24-17 A sweeter, more perfect little pup you would never find. This tiny, little 3.8 pound senior baby is finally at her last, final, and forever home. She has a wonderful new mommy and daddy and two fur sisters. Her mommy is a stay at home mom and will be home with Hope all the time. Hope will get so much love and attention. Hope is not much for playing and either are her fur sisters. They are just older pups who will love to lay around and give each other kisses every now and then. She has a nice fenced yard to wander around in and to lay out in the sun to catch a little nap. All this senior baby wants is a final home to rest her head and a person to cuddle and love her till the end. Today Hope found that. Happy life little Hope, and Happy Tails to you.

Thor

6-22-17 Sweet adorable Thor was adopted. This little boy went to his forever home today. At first it was thought he was blind in one eye, but that wasn't so. He has vision in both eyes, with an immature cataract in the left eye. The extreme dryness of his right eye is treated on a daily basis with a couple of drops of Tacrolimhus and Vetropolycin. It’s likely that he will need one or both of these drops for the rest of his life. But that is just fine with his new mommy and daddy. Thor loves belly rubs and to give kisses, so a life of kissing and belly rubs is sure to be his. His new mom and dad are the stay at home kind of people. Happily for Thor, he will hardly ever be alone. He will get to go on walks, play in the yard, swim in the pool if he wants to, and just be the love of their life. Thor couldn't be happier and life is the best it can be for him now.
