Lucy Lu and her new mom - sweet!
Lucy Lu

4-20-17 Lucy Lu went to her forever home today. This sweet girl who found herself in a shelter for over three weeks through no fault of her own never thought she would find the happy life she so deserved. While at the shelter she got sick. They couldn't spay her and so she couldn't leave the shelter. Finally United Yorkie Rescue was able to come to her rescue and take her from the shelter and shower her with medical care, love, affection, and attention. It took almost a month before Lucy was well enough to be able to go to her forever home. Finally Lucy found the most wonderful new mom—a mom who will give Lucy a lifetime of love and attention. It will be just Lucy Lu and her new mommy until the end of her days. Lucy and her wonderful mommy are starting a new life together forever.

4/17/17 Mia was adopted today. When she met her new mom and dad it was kisses, lots and lots of kisses, for them. She knew this was the family she was always meant to have. From the time Mia was taken off the streets and treated for two tick-borne diseases, had surgery for mammary tumors, along with a spay and much needed dental, she was destined to have a wonderful life. And today it happened. Her new family said she will be sleeping with them, going on walks, taking trips, and enjoying the screened porch for lying in the sun when she wants to. What more could a sweet little dog want? Mia's life does have a happily ever after and no dog deserved it more. Happy Tails, little Mia.

3-29-17 Today the best dog in the world went to his forever home. Zozo made everyone who met him smile and laugh. He is so just full of love and life and fun and craziness. Zozo needed a home where he could run and play with another dog in a fenced yard. He wanted a mom and dad who would be around all the time because he loves his people so much, and that is exactly what he got. Zozo had a rough start in life. He ended up on the streets full of ticks and then was most likely hit by a car. When he ended up in the shelter he was totally paralyzed and was 30 minutes away from being euthanized until finally his angel came and saved him and took him immediately to the vet clinic. It was there that they discovered he was covered in ticks, which caused the paralysis. After the vet removed over 100 ticks Zozo was able to start on his long road to recovery. He has severe nerve damage to his left shoulder that cannot be repaired. This has caused him to not walk well on his left front leg. Zozo spent a month at the vet clinic recovering before finally coming to his United Yorkie Rescue foster home. After another month of recovery he found his perfect and final forever home. He will be so loved and so happy there. It is everything this sweet boy ever dreamed of and needed to make his not so good life into a wonderful perfect life. Zozo deserves all the love and happiness that will be coming his way. Zozo's foster mom and dad, who will miss him, are so happy that this special pup will have a wonderful happily ever after life.

3/18/16 On New Year's Eve Pepper was found wandering the streets and was picked up by Animal Control. It was not the best place to be on New Years, but at least she was off the streets, being fed, and was warm and safe. They could see she was having a great deal of trouble waking. It was discovered that she had a shattered hip and two broken legs. Once UYR rescued her she promptly saw the orthopedic surgeon. It was determined that Pepper's injuries were months old, and she was not a candidate for corrective surgery. Because medical intervention was not given at the time of injury, the bones did not heal correctly, which has resulted in Pepper having a significant limp. The vet told her foster parents that when this accident occured she must have been in terrible pain. Poor Pepper. But at least she is no longer in pain and the gimpy limp has not slowed pretty Pepper down by any means. Although she is not one to run around she does love being outdoors and roaming free in the fenced backyard. Her foster parents knew that Pepper needed a home where she would be loved and accepted exactly as she is. Today Pepper found that perfect forever home with her perfect forever mom. When Pepper went to meet her new mom and get adopted there were balloons on the mailbox and new doggie toys and beds inside just waiting to welcome Pepper. It was like Christmas and her birthday all rolled into one wonderful day. Pepper has everything she will ever need or want. A wonderful home, a fenced yard for sunning and roaming, lots and lots of toys and doggie beds, and the best forever mom anyone could want. Never again will she be on the streets alone. She has a home now and it's forever.

3/18/17 Hooray for sweet Honey. She was adopted today. Honey's former family was no longer able to care for her and she was sadly surrendered to United Yorkie Rescue. It didn't take long for her foster family to know that Honey lived up to her name, she is as sweet as honey and as lovable as could be. Honey needed a home wth an active life. As much as she loves to cuddle she also would not be happy being a couch potato. Honey now has a real boy to play with her, and we all know how much boys like to play. She also has an older fur brother. Her new forever home has a really nice fenced yard and Honey and her fur brother and especially her human brother will have a great time in the backyard running and playing and Honey will be having the time of her life.

3/17/17/ Griffin was adopted today. It took a while and two surgeries on his hip, but finally Griffin was adopted into his perfect family. His new mom loved him from the second she saw his picture on Looking for Love and knew he just had to be her forever baby. Griffin's first owner was a breeder. His second owner rescued him from this breeder when she saw him hanging Griffin by a chain around his neck. She took him and cared for him until he sustained a hip injury and she could no longer afford his care. That is when she contacted United Yorkie Rescue to come save this sweet boy. Griffin needed to have his displaced hip surgically repaired and recovery was a long, slow process. Finally he was well enough to be adopted and it was such a happy day. His new mom and his new fur brother are so happy to welcome Griffin into their family forever.

3/17/17 Scooter went to his forever home today. Scooter found himself in the shelter scared and alone. While there he was so fearful the shelter thought he had seizure. He was released right away into the care of United Yorkie Rescue. While at his foster home he was well taken care of and there was not a hint of a seizure ever. He did have issues with crystals in his urine. It took a few months to get that under control with proper diet and an acidifier to balance his pH levels. His foster parents knew this adorable, sweet boy had found his true forever home when they saw how much his new Mommy and Daddy loved him from the first minute they saw him. There were tons of cuddles and kisses and hugs. They knew that Scooter will need to be monitored for crystals always and they were okay with doing whatever he needed. They have given Scooteer a wonderful home with a wonderful fenced yard and playmates in the neighborhood. Scooter is getting so much love and so much care. No dog could ask for a better home to spend his forever and ever days. Happy Tails little Scooter. Home at last.
