Belle and her new family and fur brother

9-9-18 Beautiful Belle was adopted today. When you think you have seen it all, a precious and very needy little dog like Belle comes along and breaks your heart all over again. Belle was one day away from euthanasia in the high-kill shelter. No other rescue group stepped up to rescue her, and no one from the public would even consider adopting this precious little girl. Why? Because there were horrendous growths on her ear that had grown so large due to chronic infections that were never cared for. There was severely thickened scar tissue on her outer ear canal. This scar tissue has grown so much that there is oozing pus and dripping blood coming from both ears. The smell from the festering infection was horrific. The pain she must be in has to be excruciating. She was scratching and pawing at her ears all the time to try to make the pain stop. But United Yorkie Rescue knew they had to save this girl and give her the life she deserved. Belle was taken to the vet right away. Her vet said that Belle had the worse case of aural hematoma she had ever seen and surgery must be done right away. Well, Belle had her surgery and after over a month of recovery, this sweet girl was well and ready for her forever home. While in her foster home and finally pain free, 4 year old Belle learned how to play, she learned that people are her friends, and she learned trust. She was an almost perfect little dog. Today Belle went to her forever home. She has a mommy and daddy and one of them will always be home with her. She has a fur brother, and best go all Belle will get to go on walks, lots and lots of walks. Besides food, walks are the most favorite things in the world to Belle. It took time and love and lots of care, but Belle made it and she found her forever home. Her foster mom and dad will miss this sweetheart, but they know that she has truly found her happily ever after and will continue to get the love and care she deserves.

I found my forever home. I am so happy

UPDATE 09/08/2018: Wesley was adopted today. Who would have thought this adorable senior boy at almost 12 years old would find a forever mom to give him the best of his life for the rest of his life? Wesley had a previous owner who was no longer able to care from him in the way she knew he needed and wanted him to have a better life. He came to his foster home a little scared and confused. He just wanted to be loved and give love, and that is what he found today. He has a new mom who will love Wesley forever. He will be the only pup in her life and she promised Wesley she will love and care for him, and keep him forever and ever. There is a wonderful back yard with a fence for those times he just wants to lay out in the sun, but there will also be walks and car rides and lots of play time. Wesley found a home of his own forever and he couldn't be a happier boy.

Here's what his forever mom said after they arrived home and settled in:

Wesley is the sweetest little soul and a very good boy. He was exhausted from the adventures of his adoption day and 3 hour car ride home. Much to my surprise, he settled in last night like he has been in my home forever. Now he will be here forever because this little man has stolen my heart.

SWEET! Have a Happy Life Wesley! There were lots of UYR volunteers involved in finding your Forever Mom for you and we all wish you the very best of life forever and ever!

Rocky found his Happy Ever After!

8/31/18 Rocky came to us literally at deaths door. We didn’t know if he would last the night. Rocky came from a breeder who sold him for $2000 at 6 weeks of age. Six weeks is WAY TOO YOUNG for a Yorkie puppy to leave his mother and litter mates. The breeder instructed his new owner to just feed kibble from the grocery store. When Rocky got sick with regular bouts of severe diarrhea and dehydration the breeder said, just bring him back and take another but Rocky’s owners did not trust them and took him to the emergency Vet where he went multiple times spending thousands of dollars reviving him only to have him relapse each time. They loved him a lot but wanted more for his life so they asked UYR for help. Rocky went straight to ICU the day he came into UYR and we were told there was a very good chance he would not survive. However, with fantastic medical care and under the watchful eye of his foster mom who is a registered nurse, Rocky underwent all the expensive tests and care needed for a proper diagnosis and care. Rocky was found to have a chronic intestinal condition called Lymphocytic Plasmacutic Gastroenteritis. This was most likely caused by early maternal separation and could have been avoided but now Rocky will have this the rest of his life and will always be a special needs Yorkie requiring medication, prescription food, close monitoring and access to specialty care. Lucky for Rocky a former UYR adopter saw Rocky’s story and decided she loved him inspire of all his medical maladies and chose to adopt this precious, tiny boy anyway. As you can see from his photo it is most definitely a LOVE CONNECTION!

I have a new mommy who loves me

8-29-18 Timmy was adopted today. Timid little Timmy was adopted by a wonderful lady. Timmy has come a long way in his foster home and he was ready to go to his forever home. Timmy had spent most of his life in a puppy mill where he was used to help make little puppies. He was finally rescued in January and was learning about love and trust. Then his new mom got hurt and was unable to care for Timmy. She couldn’t take him out or hold him or do anything for him. She knew that Timmy needed more than what she could give him so he could continue to learn how to be a real dog and get the love and care he will continue to need to have the life he was meant to have. He learned so much in his foster home. His new mommy has promised to continue with his lesson and to give him the time he still needs to learn to love and trust her. Timmy will have two big brothers and a stay at home mommy. She promised Timmy he would never be crated again and his life would forever be filled with love and care and sweetness. We are so happy for Timmy.

Miss Zoey has a forever mom and dad
Miss Zoey

8/11/18 Sweet Miss Zoey is a precious little senior princess. Her former owners sadly had to surrender her due to a change in their life situation. So at 12 years old little Miss Zoey needed a place to spend the rest of her days. Her foster mom said she is the sweetest little girl. She loves to be held and cuddled and sit on her foster mom or dad's lap. Miss Zoey has never met a stranger she didn’t like, even though she may greet new people with a little bark just so they know she is in the house, then her tail starts wagging. She loves everyone. All little Miss Zoey needed was her forever family. Today she got that. Her forever mom and dad met her and loved her from the second they picked her up and knew this tiny 3.5 pound baby was for them. She will be their only pup and get so much love. Zoey knows she has found the home and the mom and dad who will love her for as long as she lives.

I found my forever home and family. I am so happy

8-4-18 Freddy was adopted today. Freddy was surrendered to United Yorkie Rescue when his former owners realized they could not give Freddy the time and attention he needed. He needed a home where he could learn doggie manners and get some proper doggie socialization skills. Freddy did well in his foster home, though he still has more to learn about being the best dog he can be. Freddy is such a loving dog and gives kisses and loves to cuddle. He hoped his forever family would give him back lots of cuddles and kisses too. Today that happened. He found a wonderful new family now and they understand that Freddy will continue to need further training and help with his doggie skills. He has a new fur sister whom he loves already. His new mom and dad have pledged to Freddy this will be his very last and final home. They will continue to work with him and always care about him. They have promised to always and forever love him

I found my forever family.

8-1-18 Cosmo was adopted today. Cosmo found the best family ever. He was pretty sad when he was surrendered by his first family. They knew he needed more time then they could give him to work on his doggie manners. Cosmo did great in his foster home and learned a lot. He only needed a forever home of his own. Cosmo now has a stay at home mom and dad and a wonderful fur sister to play with. They have a screened in lanai and a doggie park not far away. They will take great walks several times a day, and there will be lots of indoor fun playing with toys. What a happy life for Cosmo. Happy Tails, sweet boy.

Cosmo came to UYR looking for a little more love and attention. Well, Cosmo hit the jackpot. First with his foster mommy and now with his furever family. As soon as Cosmo arrived at his furever home, he was greeted by his new fur sister who immediately fell in love with Cosmo. Then he was greeted by his human Aunt who gave him lots of hugs. Finally, his human parents. It was love at first sight. Cosmo explored his new home and found the perfect napping place on the back of the sofa. He also discovered his mom and dad’s bed is the perfect place to sleep at night. Cosmo could not have found a more perfect furever home. Thank you to his new family for their unconditional love and attention they are giving to Cosmo. Happy Tails, Cosmo.
