Initial Bio 4/6/24: My name is Cocoa, named after the cocoa bean because of my beautiful eyes. I am a sweet little older girl, I love napping in my cozy bed and being held. I get along with my foster dog siblings, I'm not sure if I like cats yet, I haven't met one. I'm not sure about toys yet, but I walk well on a leash and I have a cute skip with my left rear leg when I get going. I went to the dogtor yesterday and I weigh 6.7lbs. I have a great appetite and I love treats. I have another appointment on April 11 for a much needed dental so my sweet yorkie kisses wont make your toes curl. I'm doing really well going potty outside and also using the potty pads inside because its been cold and rainy. More updates soon


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

Sweet Girl
Florida
Ena

Ena is 5 years old and 3lbs. She is being fostered in Stuart FL. Out of state applications will not be accepted.

THANK YOU TO ENA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

THANK YOU TO ENA'S FACEBOOK DONORS!

Karry Rogers, Ula Fronczyk, Robin Nyberg

Updated bio 4/10/24: We are so happy to report that Ena is making great progress! She was seen by a skin specialist yesterday who determined that little Ena has environmental skin allergies. Our regular vet previously ruled out thyroid and Cushings disease. Her allergies have caused hair loss, bacterial infection, and inflamed skin. After a change in her environment over a month ago, Ena began to feel better, displaying much less scratching and paw-licking. We have even seen significant hair growth on her back, all the way down to her tiny tail!

Ena is now being treated with an inexpensive drug called Atopica that she will receive once a day in her food. We are going to monitor her to make sure she tolerates it well. She also received a second Convenia injection to treat the bacterial infection. It is likely she will not need additional injections. Her treatment includes weekly baths with a prescription shampoo. It smells really nice and Ena feels so good afterwards!

Ena will do best in a home where there is not too much excitement. She is still somewhat timid in nature but judging from her play behavior, we think over time she will become more trusting and less timid.

Many positive changes have occurred since Ena came into the UYR family: She is eating a healthy gravy-based food that she loves, her hydration and urination are now normal, her skin temperature is normalizing, and she smells so much better! She is walking on a leash and making progress with her potty manners. She is a playful, happy girl waiting for a new family that will revel in her progress and patiently help her continue on the path to wellness. We would love to see Ena in a home where there is an awareness about allergens, and where she will have hours of human companionship every day. Also, a big plus for Ena would be to have a little buddy as she loves other small dogs, male or female.

A sincere and heartfelt thank you to Enas donors, and to everyone following her story. We are certain she is going to have a wonderful life!

Updated bio 3/22/24:

Hey everyone, guess what I had my dental. I only lost 8 teeth. Foster Mommy has been giving me soft food and I love love love it. Im hoping that she lets me eat this forever. I love my foster brother. He makes me feel so brave when we go outside for a walk. Foster mom likes to dress me up. See the pretty necklace she gave me. She tells me all the time how beautiful I am.

My Cushing tests have come back negative. But we still dont know whats wrong!

Updated Bio 3/12/24: Hi everybody, Im hanging out in my foster moms house. Its great here. She dresses me in pretty clothes to help keep my naked body warm. Can you believe someone thought I was a Chinese crested? Nope, Im pure Yorkie. Just have this pesky skin issue. My blood work looked pretty good - no thyroid issues. Good enough to have a dental. But darn it all we still dont know the problem. So its more tests for me. Can you spare a little dollars to help me with more tests? Thanks Yorkie kisses Ena!

Initial Bio 3/3/24: Ena has joined the UYR family today. Her whole life has changed. Her dad died and her mom couldnt afford to find out what was wrong with her. Ena hasnt been to a vet in over 2 years. A good friend posted her story on Facebook and UYR was able to help Ena out. Stay with us as we start the journey to return Ena to good health. If you would like to be a part of her new life, donations would be appreciated.


To date we've spent $1373.75 on Ena's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1130 in donations.

Sweet girl!

I feel so pretty!
Florida
Lily

Lily is a 11 year old 8.5 pound yorkie girl who is being fostered near Dunedin, FL. Out of State Applications will not be considered for Lily.

THANK YOU TO LILY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Peter Hill, Stephanie Slack, Debra Frare, Robert Reyes, Diane Marvin, Debra Frare

Updated Bio 3/8/24: Lily continues to be one of the sweetest little dogs you will ever meet. Everyone who meets her simply loves her kind and precious demeanor. She is responding very well to her once a day Vetoryl, which is keeping her cortisol levels stabilized and her Cushings symptoms normalized.

Lily is almost 100% pee pad trained and will always do her business outside when she is let out. She needs to go fairly frequently, so outdoors and the pee pads work very well for Lily. She sleeps through the night and loves to snuggle and play when she first wakes up, which always makes her foster mom wake up with a smile.

She is very adaptable to a new environment, rides well in the car and is perfectly happy being left at home alone where she will sleep the entire time.

Lily will bark when someone comes to the door but, except for when she is hungry and waiting for her dinner, is not a barker. When she is hungry, she lets you know!

Updated Bio 2/21/24: Lily here and I have to share how much fun I am having and how much better I feel!

The medication (Vetoryl) that I am on for my Atypical Cushings symptoms is working very well. I just need one 5mg dose per day and the cost runs around $50 per month. Not too bad. I will need to be on this for the rest of my life, but my Foster Mom gives it to me with a yummy pill pocket and I look forward to it!

We recently went on a camping trip in an RV and I had so much fun! I travel just fine in the car and I slept really well with all that fresh air. There were lots of other dogs around and nice people who kept telling me how sweet and cute I am. My Foster Mom is also so impressed with how well my little legs do. I have two luxated patellas but can run like the dickens when I want to! She says I have a strong will to enjoy life in spite of my little idiosyncrasies.

I am definitely pee pad trained but when let out, I will always go outside. Sometimes I just have to go often, so getting outside may not always work.

Well, that's it for now. Still waiting for my Furever Home and, since I am becoming so attached to my Foster Mom, I know I need a home where I can be attached Furever!

Upated Bio 2/1/24: Lily is doing just great! After being on her medication for 3 weeks, she had her blood tests to check on her cortisol levels and the Dogter called with great news! With just one dose of Vetoryl (5mg) per day, her levels stabilized which means we don't need to increase the dosage. Her Vetoryl costs about $50 per month and has not only made Lily feel so much better, it has stabilized her previous behavior - insatiable hunger, thirst and urinating. Lily is a whole new dog!

She just went on a little road trip and adapted well to each new environment, and although a little shaky at first in the car, she relaxes pretty quickly.

Lily walks really well on the leash and her luxated patellas are only a bit tricky for her when she is on a slippery floor. Otherwise, she walks like a champ!

Small correction re: the number of teeth she has - she was left with 5 teeth, but can eat and chew with no problem.

Lily is pee pad housebroken. While she will always do her business when let outside, if inside and too much time has passed, she will go on the pee pad.

One could not ask for a sweeter little girl. She loves to be near her human and will make a wonderful companion dog to that special someone. Lily wants to know if that will be you?

Updated Bio: 1/19/23 Lily here again and with nice shiny clean teeth after my recent dental! I was left with 10 teeth, which is just fine as I can still eat and enjoy my treats.

The other good news is that the medication I am taking seems to be helping my "Atypical Cushings" symptoms some. Foster Mom reports that I am not as ravenously hungry, I am doing my business more outside of the house rather than on pee pee pads inside the house and I am not as thirsty. We still need some housebreaking work, but my foster mom seems very, very happy when I go outside and then I get a little treat.

But wait! More good news.....I was on a diet and needed to lose a couple of pounds and succeeded! I weigh 8.5 lbs now which, according to the Dogter, is an ideal weight for me. I am a good girl.

I return for more blood tests soon to see if my Vetoryl dosage is lowering my cortisol levels (whatever that means) and to see if we need to adjust the dosage.

The Dogter also removed a mammary tumor, which was benign, but she wanted to be sure that didn't become bad later on. She also took out a couple of warts so, as she said, "I would be nice and pretty for a potential adopter". I thought I already was adorable?

Either way, it is feeling more and more like I can be treated for this and make someone a very happy human! Will you be the human that makes me a very happy dog! If you think I would be a good fit for you please email my foster mom at dunedinrescuemom@yahoo.com.

Updated Bio 1/11/24: Updated bio: 1/09/24 Happy New Year from Lily! It has been quite an adventure these past couple of weeks and here are some things my foster mom has learned about me:

I walk much better on the leash than she thought I would. I have luxated patellas in both my back legs which are, fortunately, causing me no pain. Around the house, I sometimes lose my balance and flop sideways, but when we go out for a walk, I look like I am training for a marathon! She says I walk nicely on the leash too.

I get along great with other dogs and people too. While I am not a big snuggler or lap dog, I always like to be near my person and will follow her wherever she goes. And then I lay down and sleep. I am 11 years old so I sleep a lot, and I like to sleep in the morning too except the other dog in the house wakes up early and wakes me up. But that's okay, because I get a lot of praise and a treat when I go right outside and do all my business.

I do prefer a home with a woman, but men don't particularly bother me. I am a little nervous riding in the car and I love to wander around the back yard and sniff and explore all those wonderful smells!

Foster mom has me on a diet as I need to lose just a couple of pounds, but not too much and we have had some success.

I have had a lot of testing done recently to figure out why I am ravenously hungry all the time, drink a ton of water and urinate constantly. If let outside, I will pee pee there, but I have to go so frequently, foster mom can't get to me in time so I go inside a lot on pee pads.

We learned I have "Atypical Cushings Disease". After spending the entire day at the vet getting blood taken (I was a good girl), the Dogter found that I have extremely high levels of cortisol, which occurs because I have a hyperactive adrenal gland. It's called "atypical" because the blood tests did not show as Cushings, but I manifest all the same symptoms.

The very good news is that it's treatable and, if I take my medication regularly, I can live a normal life and those pesky other symptoms will go away. I am currently taking Vetoryl which squashes the production of the cortisol and we are experimenting with the dosage at this time. The other good news is that my other blood work came back fine and my liver values are good.

I still have to return to the Dogter to have my dental. I may end up with very few teeth, but I know I will feel much better when that icky plaque and bad teeth are gone.

My foster mom keeps telling my I am a very sweet, sweet girl and I am soft like a little Teddy Bear. I bark when I want something, but I don't bark often. She says once we get to the other side of my issues, I will be a very easy and sweet companion dog for someone. Will that someone be you?

Update bio 12/21/23: Lily's foster mom is learning quickly that Lily loves the outdoors and likes to roam around and then relax in the back yard. Due to Lily's luxated patella in her left rear leg, she is not able to do a lot of walking and will sometimes walk with a limp, although she shows no sign of pain. Because of this, a home with a fenced in yard will be preferable.

Lily loves to sleep and eat and can lose a few pounds so foster mom has her on a bit of a weight loss diet. She is mostly housebroken, but if left for awhile, she may have an accident. She is hearing impaired and in order to get her attention, you need to clap very loudly. Her favorite place is near her foster mom, although she is not a lap dog.

Lily's preference would be a home with a woman. Although she gets along with men, she attaches herself to the female of the household.

She will be seeing the groomer and the Dogter soon, so stay tuned for further updates on this sweet little girl!

Initial Bio 12/20/23: Meet sweet Lily. She has just come into rescue after her parents were not able to care for her due to her Mom's medical condition. Lily was very attached to her Mom. Her parents reached out to us to see if we could foster this sweet girl. We can not wait to see her personality when she gets all the settled into her new foster home and gets a day at the spa! Stay tuned for updates!

I'm Handsome!
Florida
Rudy

Rudy is a 7 year old 12 pound yorkie boy who is being fostered near Riverview, Florida. No out of state applications will be considered.

THANK YOU TO RUDY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Diane Marvin, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, DeAnn Deutsch, Nestor Sanchez

Bio update 3/17/24: Rudy is a 7 year old Yorkie weighing 12 pounds. The vet rechecked his bloodwork and unfortunately his kidney values did not improve as much as we hoped they would. While he continues getting a shot of fluids once a week and staying on a renal diet, the vet will recheck his bloodwork again the beginning of May. Once stabilized, he will need a dental.

Rudy has been doing really well with his potty training and his barking. He only occasionally has accidents inside. He loves to cuddle up in his foster mom's lap while she is working. While he loves being a lap dog, he also likes to play with hard toys. He loves being outside and going on walks, but beware he does walk fast.

Rudy still has a lot of love to give and will always make you smile! He will even smile back at you when he is excited! He is not mischievous, and he is really a great family dog.

Bio Update 2/15/24: Rudy is such a sweetheart! He barks a lot, but his foster mom is working with him on it. He is 13 pounds and still needs to lose a pound or 2. He loves going on walks, but he is a fast walker. He is a sock stealer and likes hard teething bones. He is getting more and more playful as he gets more comfortable in his foster home. He thinks he is a tiny lapdog and follows his foster mom everywhere. He doesn't seem to care about other animals, but he is used to being the only dog in his previous home. He does not like sharing the attention with his foster brother. He does well with kids.

Rudy's bloodwork came back and he has very high BUN & Creatine levels. He has been placed on subcutaneous fluids once a week for 4 weeks and is now on a prescription renal diet. This does explain his constant accidents inside. His foster mom has been using belly bands, and he has been doing better with going potty outside. He hasn't been able to have his dental yet. Per the vet, his labs need to be more stabilized first. He will need a dental before he is ready for adoption.

Requirements for his forever home:

Fenced in backyard, someone who is home with him most of the time - retired or work from home, someone who can keep up with his fast walking (he is a man on a mission when walking and loves exploring outside), and a home with no other dogs.

Updated Bio: 2/4/24: Rudy is a 7 year old, 13 pound yorkie whose owner passed away recently. He loves going on walks and is always on his foster family's laps or laying in a nearby dog bed. He doesn't know how to play with toys or go up steps. He can be yappy at times and tends to bark at his reflection in the mirror. Rudy is not 100% potty trained, but his foster mom is working with him on it.

Rudy would do best in a home where he is the only dog and at least one family member is retired or works from home. He loves to run around, and his forever home needs to have a fenced in backyard or be an active family who will frequently take him on long walks. He does well around kids 10 and up. Rudy is not ready for adoption due to needing a dental and is awaiting bloodwork results from his vet check.

Initial Bio 01/28/2024: Meet sweet Rudy. He has just come into rescue after his parents were not able to care for him. We can not wait to see his personality when he gets all the settled into his new foster home. Stay tuned for updates!

Georgia
Louie

Welcome to sweet Louie, a 1 year old, 12 pound Terrier mix boy being fostered in Suwanee, GA.

THANK YOU TO LOUIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta

Updated Bio 1/18/24

Louie has quickly become part of the family at his foster parents home. He has made friends with the grumpy old lady cock-a-poo and has been the first one to ever get her to play and the two of them have long tug-of-war, chase, and wrestling matches. Louie would be happiest with a friend his size or slightly larger that he could play and explore with. Louie is still a puppy and investigating the world with his mouth and is continually bringing in new things he has found in the back yard like sticks and pinecones and even leaves. Louie needs to be watched when youre home and crated when you leave because if there is something to find he will find it and put it in his mouth. Louie really needs a backyard to play and run in. He loves to spend time exploring! Louie has exceptional hearing and is very reactive to sounds outside and even on the TV. It will take patience because he feels a strong need to warn everyone that there is something out there. For this reason, Louie would not be an ideal dog for anyone in an apartment or condo. From the beginning Louie has had a strong desire for security and affection. He sleeps in the bed with his parents and loves to snuggle. Louie is not a yorkie but is a wire-haired terrier with a beautiful orange/red coat and white blaze. Louies needs regular grooming and brushing because he does shed. Louie is in good health and is a puppy who should see a long life. Adopters should keep this in mind and be willing to provide for Louie for the next 15 to 17 years.

Updated Bio 1-3-24

Louie is a wonderful pup! We cant believe he is still in rescue! Louie needs to spend more time out and about where he can learn that the outside world and strange sights and sounds arent always a threat. He wasnt socialized very much. We dont know much about his background except that he and a sibling were surrendered and taken into rescue. Louie has not had proper attention before, but he is eager to please and ready to be trained. He is a Velcro puppy who wants his parents attention. He loves to his toys and likes to play and is great at fetch and loves to snuggle up next to his person in bed at night! Hed love a playful friend his size or larger but would also do well on his own. He seems to only be curious about cats and one near swat on the nose and satisfied his curiosity for the moment. He would not be good with a submissive partner, either dog or human since he can get too bossy and protective when really what he needs is to feel secure and protected. Louie is about 89% housetrained and currently wears a belly band in the house. It would be good to have a home where people are around most of the day. Louie hates the crate but will tolerate it for short periods of time. Louie deserves a home of his very own could that home be yours??

Updated Bio 11/7/23

He has a beautiful red wire coat and white chin and chest blaze and is currently weighing in at about 12 pounds. He has a mild skin irritation but some medicated baths at home are helping to get rid of the dry itchiness. Louie doesnt shed much now that he is in a stable and much calmer environment. It would be good to have a home where people are around most of the day. Louie hates the crate but will tolerate it for short periods of time. If you want a real companion to spend your time with then Louie is a great choice to fill a home with love and affection.

Updated Bio 3/16/24

Winston is a 5 lb boy who showed up at a kind man's house, matted and covered with feces and urine. This kind man took Winston into his home. He had Winston groomed and tried to find his owner. This kind man did all he could for Winston, but he was unable to keep this adorable pup as he worked many long hours away from home.

Meet Oliver, a handsome 9 year old, 16 pound Yorkie Mix boy being fostered in Rhode Island. Only Rhode Island applicants will be considered.

THANK YOU TO OLIVER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Jennifer Hamilton, Kathleen Gaertner, Lauren Satterfield, Shawn Hudson, Debra Frare, Stephanie Slack, Yvette Vangeloff, Wendy Henry, Cheryl Scrupski, Sandy Pagnotta, Dan Clauser, Wendy Henry

Update 3/24/24: Its Spring in Rhode Island, and although the weather is fickle, I enjoy being able to roam about the yard and enjoy walks in the neighborhood on really nice days.

I had a dental done and a fistula repair, unfortunately the repair did not heal properly and I have to have it repaired again in 2 weeks.

FM says Im very easy going, eating is my very favorite part of the day, and occasionally Ill steal my Foster sisters Antler for a little chew.

I get along with FMs pack; Im pretty quiet, no barking so I would do well in an apartment, however Im NOT able to go up and down stairs. Im looking for a soft bed and someone that needs a companion to come home to, oh and Im a really good listener.

Initial Bio 1-2-24: Hi, I'm Oliver. My family had to make a difficult decision to surrender me to United Yorkie Rescue, so I traveled from Maryland to Rhode Island. I'm with my Foster family and their pack. The first few days have been confusing but I get to have homemade food, treats and plenty of pats. FM says I'm so mellow and I haven't even barked one time, even when the rest of her pack bark.

I go to the Vet for a full check up and updated vaccination on 1/10/24 but this Friday I have a Spa Day. After that, well share a Glam shot of me. I'm sure I will look very handsome!

THANK YOU TO ELLIOT'S RESCUE ANGELS!

THANK YOU TO ELLIOT'S FACEBOOK DONORS!

Karry Rogers, Sandy Pagnotta, Veronica Gonzales

Updated Bio 2/22/24

Elliot is a very chill guy and enjoys spending his days lounging around and being petted. He loves to sleep with foster mom as well. He is a wonderful dog and very well behaved and super smart. Elliot is diagnosed with being on the verge of Cushings Disease which can be managed with medication. As of right now he DOES NOT-have it but all signs of aging is leaning towards this disease. He does have a thyroid issue which is being managed with medication twice a day and he is taking a medication for his gallbladder. He takes his medication easily with food and both medications are affordable. Elliot did have a small turmor removed that was discovered at his last checkup It was an apocrine sweat gland cyst, which is a benign, non-cancerous lesion. It was completely excised, so he should not have one recur at that spot but it is possible for him to develop others in other areas so we need to make sure we continue to monitor. His bloodwork looked good at this visit. Elliot is a beautiful doggie with lots of love and life to give who truly deserves a home of his own. He is not much for going on walks but will go potty outside in a fenced yard and will also use wee wee pads in the house. He does drink lots of water and he will wear a belly band. Elliot would make someone a great companion he just needs some continued medical care to life his best life.

Updated Bio 8/30/23: Hi there yall! Im Elliott and I sure am happy to meet you! I feel like a very lucky guy to have found my way into United Yorkie Rescue. I haven't had this much love, care, and special attention since...well FOREVER! I've only been in my new foster home a short time but Ive been really getting around. I've had lots of time with my Dogtors and they are working really hard to get me figured out.

Here's what we know:

My thyroid hormones are low which is probably one of the reasons I'm a little on the chubby side. Low thyroid is very common in terriers once they get to be adults. The great news with hypothyroidism (fancy word for low thyroid hormones) is that it is very easily managed with a daily pill that is inexpensive and easily given.

I have a few not so great teeth and lots of tartar. I realize this may also cause me to not be very kissable and that is NOT ACCEPTABLE because I love to GIVE AND RECEIVE kisses. However, the Dogtor has ASSURED ME that after my dental all will be well and I will be able to claim my title of CANINE KISSING CHAMP. What a relief!

Here's What We Aren't Yet Sure About

I have some lab values that are mildly out of range. One lab draw showed elevated potassium but in a follow-up test it was normal. I had some mildly elevated liver enzymes, some elevated proteins and this made my care team give me a test for Cushing's Disease but those test results were mostly normal. So then I had an ultrasound of my abdomen which showed that I do have some enlargement of my liver, adrenal glands and gall bladder. My gall bladder is sludgy but I'm taking medicine to help with that too and if I do have stones the medicine should help them dissolve. I had some protein in my urine but that can also be caused by things like dehydration and infection so my Dogtors did additional tests that we dont have results for yet.

So for now my medical team recommends follow-up testing with my primary Vet to monitor me. It is PAWSIBLE I might develop Cushing's Disease in the future but as of now they don't feel tests show I have it and they do not recommend any type of treatment for it.

My plan for the future is to sit back, relax, soak up ALL THE LOVE in my foster home, let my Dogtors come up with my PAWFECT treatment plan and DARE TO DREAM ABOUT THAT AMAZING PERFECT PERSON who might be looking at my photo and reading my story and just knowing that I AM THEIR PERFECT FUREVER BOY!

Updated Bio 8/21/23

Elliot was going to have a dental on the 18th but his bloodwork showed some values were off and the vet didnt want to put him under anesthesia. They have tested him for Addisons Disease and Cushings disease but nothing is confirming to either one of those. So tomorrow he is having X-rays done to see if something may show there and if we cant find anything he will see a specialist so we can get to the bottom with what is the cause of his electrolytes being off. His thyroid is doing well on the medication so that is a plus and he has lost almost a pound which is great news as he is overweight and needs to work on losing a few pounds. We hope to get to the bottom of everything soon so Elliot can have his much needed dental and find a home of his own very soon.

Updated Bio 8/2/23 Hello my name is Elliot. I am looking for a new home because my family wasnt able to care for me anymore. I just turned 10 and I am a bit sad that I dont have a home of my own right now. United Yorkie Rescue has given me a place to stay and Foster mom seems pretty cool I guess. I had to go to the Dogtor for a checkup and they gave me some shots and weighed me and did some bloodwork. Turns out I am a bit overweight I need to lose about 4-5 pounds. They also discovered from my bloodwork that I have a thyroid issue and need to take medication once a day. Its fairly inexpensive and it will help me lose weight and to feel better. When I go on the 18th to get my teeth cleaned they will recheck to see how Im doing after being on the medication a few weeks. I hope a family will still want to adopt me even though I have this issue because I really am a great guy with lots of love to give. I get along well with others and Im not hyper. I promise if you take a chance on loving me I will be the bestest boy ever and give you lots of love. Please email Foster Mom with any questions or fill out an application. I cant wait to meet you!

Initial Bio 7/23/23 Elliot was surrendered along with his brother Bentley by a family who could no longer care for them. Stay tuned as we get to know him better for updates.

Updated Bio 3/26/24

Parker is doing so much better since coming into rescue. His skin is all cleared up and his coat his healthy and shiny. He will still need regular medcated baths. Parker did have his dental and lost a few teeth he developed an infection of the salivary gland but has taken some antibiotics and is all healed up from that now. During the dental the Dogtor did a tear test and discovered that Parker does have dry eye syndrome and will need to be on an medication for this for life. He has been diagnosed with early Stage B2 Chronic degenerative valve disease since coming into rescue. At this stage of the disease he will be treated with a medication called pimobendan (Vetmiden). This medication has shown to slow down further progression of the disease and prolong the time until the development of congestive heart failure. Parker has no fluid buildup at this time and he has not yet gone into congestive heart failure. He will need a recheck in July with the Cardiologist. Parker is the sweetest, smartest little fellow. He is pad trained, rides quietly in his crate in the car and he gets along with other dogs. He loves sleeping in his own bed and eats his food right up. He only barks when the other dogs bark. Parker does require a special adopter who understands his medical needs to give him the proper care he needs to live his best life. He is adoptable and has a lot of love left to give.

Email foster mom with any questions at mandymsmith1@yahoo.com

Updated Bio 1/17/24

For those that dont know Parkers story. He was surrendered by his owners who said they no longer had the time to provide Parker with the special care he needed. It was disclosed that he had a skin infection but no other issues. Luckily Foster mom sees the same vet that Parker has been seeing so we have a complete vet history on Parker. In July of this year Parker was diagnosed with a heart murmur grade 1. Foster mom noticed that Parker was coughing so the dogtor did X-rays and noticed that his murmur has increased in grades from July till now. The Dogtor was concerned that Parker was going into congestive heart failure and he was referred to a cardiologist. Parker had his appointment with the cardiologist today and it went well. He had an Echocardiogram (ultrasound of the heart) on the Echo he had moderate leaking of his mitral valve. His left heart chambers were both mildly dilated. His right heart chambers were normal in size. His heart function was normal. It has been noted he has a grade 4/6 left apical systolic murmur. He has been diagnosed with early Stage B2 Chronic degenerative valve disease. At this stage of the disease he will be treated with a medication called pimobendan (Vetmiden). This medication has shown to slow down further progression of the disease and prolong the time until the development of congestive heart failure. Parker has no fluid buildup at this time and he has not yet gone into congestive heart failure. He will need a recheck in 6 months with the Cardiologist. Parker has the all clear from the heart doctor to have his much needed dental. At his regular Doctor it was also noted that Parkers eyes have mature cataracts and noted iris atrophy. He does have new pigmentation on his right cornea. This can be due to an infection or the beginnings of dry eye syndrome. He has been on an eye drop medication for about 3 weeks now and improvement has been made. The skin infection is a fungal infection and he has been given oral to take for that and medicated baths. Foster mom also had to give him a haircut down to his skin so the medicated baths can work better. His skin looks so much better he is doing great! All that being said, Parker is the sweetest, smartest little fellow. He is pad trained, rides quietly in his crate in the car and he gets along with other dogs. He loves sleeping in his own bed and eats his kidney care science diet food right up. He only barks when the other dogs bark. Please consider donating to Parkers care. Since coming into United Yorkie Rescue he has improved tremendously!!! We cannot continue to do it without your kind support. Email foster mom with any questions at mandymsmith1@yahoo.com

Initial Bio 12/29/23

Parker came into rescue the Friday before Christmas. He was surrendered by his owners who said they no longer had the time to provide Parker with the special care he needs. When he was surrendered his owners said he had a skin infection which required medication and medicated baths. Parker saw the Dogtor today and a few more issues have been discovered. Luckily Foster mom sees the same vet that Parker has been seeing so we have a complete vet history on Parker. In July of this year Parker was diagnosed with a heart murmur grade 1. Foster mom noticed a cough and the Dogtor did another x-ray; it was discovered that he now has a grade 3 out of 6 heart murmur. Not only that but his heart is larger than normal and his pulmonary (lung) blood vessels appear to be enlarged and congested. The Dogtor is concerned that Parker is going into congestive heart failure. He is being referred to a cardiologist. He cannot have a much needed dental until this is done because we don't want to risk putting him under anesthesia. It was also noted that Parkers eyes have mature cataracts and noted iris atrophy. He does have new pigmentation on his right cornea. This can be due to an infection or the beginnings of dry eye syndrome. He has an eye drop medication he will be taking for 2 weeks to see if improvement is made. The skin infection is a fungal infection and he has been given more medication to take for that and will need to continue the medicated baths. He has also been given furosemide to reduce the fluid buildup on his heart. All that being said, Parker is the sweetest, smartest little fellow. He is pad trained, rides quietly in his crate in the car and he gets along with other dogs. He loves sleeping in his own bed and eats his food right up. He only barks when the other dogs bark. Please consider donating to this little guy. It's hard enough to be giving up by the only family you have known right before Christmas at 12 years of age. Let's help this sweet boy get well and feel better with the best of care that United Yorkie Rescue can provide. We cannot continue to do it without your kind support.

Andre
Texas
Andre

Meet Andre, a handsome 2 year old, 13 pound Yorkie boy being fostered in Cedar Park, TX. Only Texas residents will be considered.

THANK YOU TO ANDRE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, David Lavine, David and Diana Lavine, Brandye Randermann, DeAnn Deutsch, Danielle Mendoza

Update 3/6/24: Andre continues to be a total love bug and has totally stolen our hearts. He is ready to find his forever family just in time for spring!

He has quickly become the king of our house, sleeps with us and is a total cuddle bug. He loves everyone he meets and loves to greet everyone with lots of kisses. He keeps us laughing with his antics and even his snoring makes us smile! His limited vision doesn't slow him down at all and if you didn't know you would think his vision is perfect!

He is looking for a family with or without kids and he gets along with cats and other dogs. He loves to be outside so needs a large yard to run and play (and chase the occasional squirrel) :)

If you live in central Texas and are interested in adopting Andre, please fill out an application! We would love to set up a play date to see if it's the perfect match!

Update 1/12/24: Andre is doing great and his limited vision doesn't limit him at all! He loves EVERYTHING! Playing outside, playing in the house, belly rubs and giving kisses. He loves to cuddle and loves to be with his person so if you're looking for a lap dog, he will be perfect :)

He has more testing to be done on his eyes before he can go to his furever home. He is potty trained and has had zero accidents in the house since we got him. He would do great in a family with older kids (he LOVES our 8 year old grandson). He needs a large yard to run and play and would do great with a family with other dogs.

10/27/23 Update: Hello Everyone..I am back with United Yorkie Rescue after my adoption last April. Unfortunately my family had some emergency issues come up and they decided it was best that I find that perfect family that wants a very loving, kissing baby that just wants to play play play with other dogs. I just crave attention so be ready for a lot of love and a shadow to follow you everywhere. I love dogs, people, car rides you name it. If it means I can be with you Im all in.

I am up to date on all vaccines, neutered, dental and I just had my bloodwork done and I am perfect. I had heartworm when I came to UYR last time but I am all well now.

I do have cataracts in both eyes so I will need surgery to remove and place with new lenses. Just like humans. But believe me that doesnt slow me down. UYR is going to look into my surgery so check back for updates.

3/23/23 Update: Andre is just the sweetest little boy ever! He likes to split his time between snuggling and playing. Andre loves cuddling up and giving kisses. He gets along fabulously with dogs of all sizes and genders but prefers bigger female dogs to play with. Andre also loves playing with cats and older children. He would probably love younger children as well as long as they are respectful. He has been neutered and began his treatment for heartworms. He has one more set of heartworm shots left and then he will be ready for his forever home.

1/9/23 Initial Bio: Sweet little baby Andre was found on the streets matted and heart worm positive. On top of that this sweet baby boy has limited vision because of congenital cataracts. Despite having limited vision, he gets around very well. Andre is very friendly and loves all sizes of dogs and also adores cats. He is house trained but usually wears a wrap to keep him from marking in the house. Andre would do very well with most families as he is the friendliest little guy around. He loves giving kisses and snuggling and is always up for car rides. A well secured fence and no pool is a must or someone who likes to go on long walks would be perfect for him. He is currently being treated for heart worms and will be neutered soon.


To date we've spent $1512.67 on Andre's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $400 in donations.

Baxter
Texas
Baxter TX

Meet Baxter, a handsome estimated 5 year old, 11 pound Yorkie mix boy being fostered in Austin, TX. Only Texas residents will be considered.

THANK YOU TO BAXTER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Yolanda Ramos

Update 3/21/24: Baxter is a healthy, happy 11 pound yorkie mix who is ready for adoption!

He is friendly, super smart, loves walks and playing and gets along well with his foster yorkie brothers. He is happy exploring outside as long as you are with him and also very content snuggling next to or near you while you are reading, working, or watching TV. We have walked him to local outdoor restaurants, pet store and around the neighborhood and taken him on day trips in the car and he has been very well behaved. He is house trained, updated on vaccines, fully recovered from his neuter surgery and dental cleaning and just a joy to have around. Also, his vision is good even though he only has one eye.

Ideally, Baxter would do well in a home where his owner has time to spend with him, will take him on walks and where he will not be left alone all day. If you are interested in adopting Baxter, please fill out an application on the link below and

feel free to reach out to Baxters foster mom at the email address below with any questions about Baxter.

Initial Bio 2/29/24: Baxter is a super happy and healthy yorkie mix who will be ready for adoption soon after he recovers from his neuter surgery this week. His age is unknown but he has the puppy energy of a younger dog, although hes also very happy to lie down next to you or sit in your lap for petting and belly rubs. He is very smart and shows signs that he likes to play. Today he picked up toys when we threw them for him but then dropped them as he is still figuring out his place with the rest of the pack.

UYR took Baxter into our care after someone found him and tried to find his owner before surrendering him to an Animal Shelter. He was matted and missing one eye, but his sweet and happy demeanor indicates he had a loving home in his previous life. He has been with his new foster family for only three days since his neuter surgery and dental (he only lost one tooth), but he has adjusted well so far to new surroundings and gets along well with his foster yorkie brothers. So far he seems to be house trained, but we take him outside for potty breaks often and we put him in a crate at night and sometimes during the day for feeding and resting. He is super smart, not shy, loves walks and being outside exploring the backyard as long as you are with him. If you are interested in adopting Baxter, please fill out an application on the link below.

Feel free to email his foster mother with questions at the email below.


To date we've spent $830.67 on Baxter TX's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $100 in donations.

Texas
Cindi

Meet Cindi, a very 11-12 year old, 4 pound Yorkie girl being fostered in McKinney, TX. Only Texas applicants will be considered.

Initial Bio 4/2/24: Please meet precious Cindi. Cindi, lovingly named from "Cinderella", is a mere 4lbs and 11-12 yrs of age. She was found by a wonderful lady who searched for weeks for her owner. Sadly, this was all a dead-end as Cindi's microchip was never registered, and no one ever answered the ads in the Lost and Found or area shelters. Luckily though she will get her Cinderella as the finder reached out to our rescue.

Cindi came to us as a hot mess. She was severely matted and her eyes were in such a horrible condition with ulcers on both eyes and a condition called dry eye. Not to mention, Cindi's skin and coat were so dirty and her nails that were painfully long. Although she has spent the better part of a week at the vet getting treatment for her eyes, she is otherwise very healthy and her blood work looks great. She will revisit the vet this week for a follow up with her eyes and has an appointment already setup for a spa day! She did receive a medicated bath and luckily, the vet was able to cut away most of her matting without losing all of her coat. The staff said she loves to snuggle and give kisses and I can assure you she is all full of love!

As you can see with her prior hot mess of a coat, she will just be so gorgeous with that coat!! Cindi is now in the arms of her loving foster momma and dad and is absolutely just as sweet as they come. If you think you could offer Cindi the furever home this little Cinderella deserves, please complete the application below. Feel free to email foster for any info you might need at stickhors@gmail.com.


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

THANK YOU TO COTTON'S FACEBOOK DONORS!

Update 1/28/24: Hey there everybody in United Yorkie Rescue Land. Foster Mom said that I needed to update my biography and let you know what has been going on in my life. If youve read my initial biography (which is below this biography) you know that I was in pretty rough shape when UYR came to my rescue. Although UYR mostly deals with Yorkies, they just couldnt leave me behind suffering. Since being picked up all my health issues have been addressed. My eye was taken out, Ive been spayed, microchipped and have had all my shots at Austin Animal Services the first week of January.

On January 11th I moved north to McKinney to my new Foster home. January 18th, I went to see a new Dogter to get my eye stitches removed and he said that I healed up fabulously. So now its time to get serious about finding my furever home.

Let me tell you a little about what my Foster Pawrents have figured out about me. The Dogter in Austin thinks I am around 6 months old and that I am probably a Maltese. I am a beautiful white boy weighing in at just around 9 lbs. I get along with all the other puppers here, but I want to play more than they do. Luckily I can also play by myself with my toys. I like to move my toys around and wrestle with the doggie beds here. I am not totally housetrained but am working on that every day. I love food so much but maybe that could be because I was on my own for a while. I enjoy exploring the back yard with my sniffer. I also will bark when I see someone walk by the front window and at strange noises I do not recognize. I have free range of my foster home and they let me sleep wherever I want to. I like to test out all the doggie beds, just like Goldilocks but I usually end up sleeping close to my foster hoomans. I am all puppy so I would like a stay at home Pawrent especially since I am so young and will need continued training. Because I am such a little guy if you have children they need to be at least 12 years old and know how to behave towards puppies. A secure fenced yard would be a bonus but absolutely NO CHAIN LINK FENCES only because of the terrible predators Texas has and some of those creatures can climb chain link fences. My foster hoomans are still learning about me so more details about me and my personality will be in my next bio.

So this is what I am searching for so far but that may change in the future.

A stay at home parent to continue with my potty training and other training cuz I am pretty smart and bet I will learn tricks and commands easily.

No kids under 12.

Secure fenced yard is a bonus.

No chain link fences.

If you have a fur dog about my size I would like that but it is not a deal breaker.

No apartments please as I am a barker at this time.

Lots of toys.

Comfy beds and your bed would be my first choice.

An abundance of love.

Some healthy tasty food and I love dry kibble.

Great yummy treats especially training treats.

I am not a fan of crates.

I am not a big kisser.

I will become a Velcro buddy.

So if you think you can satisfy my needs and wants please submit an application for me and there is a direct link below to do that. If you have any questions you can reach my FM at stickhors@gmail.com with them.

United Yorkie Rescue helps so many littles and we count on our family, friends and Facebook buddies for contributions to help us help others that need our help (like me). If you find it in your heart and budget to help us out there is a PayPal link below for donations. You can always share my story with your friends too if you are unable to donate as the more shares I get there might be someone who can help us. Every donation helps one of our rescued littles and UYR will always step up to help as many as they can.

Initial Bio 1/9/24: Cotton is a 6 month old male Maltese that weighs 8 lbs. Cotton was brought into the Austin animal shelter last week as a stray in horrible condition. He was severely matted, covered in his own feces and urine, infested with fleas, with his left eye ruptured, protruding and bleeding. He was also dehydrated and very thin. Even though Cotton is not a Yorkie, when UYR Texas team members saw his pitiful photo on the shelter's daily intake list we contacted the shelter to see if we could help him. While at the shelter Cotton underwent surgery to have his ruptured eye removed and he was neutered at the same time, they also relieved him of most of his matted fur and all of those awful fleas. United Yorkie Rescue was there to pick him up as soon as he was approved to be released from the shelter and we took him straight to our vets office to be checked out. He is up to date on all shots and surprisingly appears to be in overall good health. Cotton is still in the process of healing from his eye surgery and we are still getting to know him, however we do know that he is a sweet little guy that is full of life and has lots of energy. He loves to play with toys and his temporary fosters believe that he would really enjoy having another younger energetic dog to play with.

Please stay tuned for updates as we get to know this sweet little guy better.


To date we've spent $510 on Cotton's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1007 in donations.

Honey
Texas
Honey TX

Meet Honey, a totally precious 2 year old, 15 pound Yorkie girl being fostered in Azle, TX. Only Texas applicants will be considered.

THANK YOU TO HONEY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Saskia Bushko

Initial Bio 2/24/24: Meet sweet, sweet Honey who was given a second chance at life. Honey is a larger, 2 year old, 15 pound, healthy Yorkie mix. She was surrendered by her family to a local shelter, pregnant. She had a skirmish with another dog and a human stuck their hand in the middle of the skirmish and was bitten. Honey was placed in quarantine for 10 days, alone, sleeping on a concrete floor, at the shelter. Her pregnancy was terminated and she was spayed. UYR received a call from the shelter asking if we could take her otherwise she would be euthanized that evening. UYR agreed to take her and we are getting to know her.

Honey is very sweet and loves humans. Her foster discovered she is house and pee pad trained and crate trained. She is learning the sit command and since she is young, she is learning manners! She seems to get along with female dogs in the house but has not yet adjusted to the large male dog in the house. Her foster mom thinks with some more time and decompression, she will adjust.

She loves to chase balls in the yard. She is learning to play with the other dogs and is getting the hang of it! She is a huge cuddler and just loves to be next to her human for lots of loving. She will be a wonderful, loyal, companion for the right family. She still has a little bit of learning that needs to happen as with all young dogs but she is a gem of a girl!

If you are interested, please fill out an application on www.uyr.us or email foster mom with questions.

We don't know her whole story but can tell you this little girl will need time to come out of her shell. She is beautiful and only 2 years and 9 months old. She is a very quiet girl that likes to hide in small dark places. Foster Mom is working with her to learn to trust again. We want Miss Luna to know that beautiful yorkie girls belong in soft beds for relaxing! Toys are new to her and Foster Mom is teaching Luna to play and will find out which toys are her favorite!!!!

She's been to the vet, had all of her shots, spay and her dental! Foster Mom is working on house training. This is a very new concept for Miss Luna and will take some time but she is one smart girl and will get there!

Miss Luna is looking for her forever home. She would like a loving family that wants to share lots of love and couch cuddles. This family will understand that from a rough beginning can come the best of happily ever after.

Marley
Texas
Marley aka Chase TX

Meet Marley, aka Chase, a sweet little 11 pound, 4 year old Yorkie boy being fostered in Grapevine, TX. Only Texas applicants will be considered.

THANK YOU TO MARLEY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta

Initial Bio 3/27/24: Hello Y'all! Meet Marley! He is the best lil cowboy puppy you will ever meet! Marley was found abandoned in a pasture in rural West Texas. Apparently he found himself sharing the pasture he entered with a resident Longhorn bull that was not too happy!! Luckily, he only had some bruising on his front paw and hind leg but no breaks. Marley was out there for some time since he was such a hot mess when he was brought in. He was full of matts and had a fiery skin infection. With the love of this foster, and the vet, he has begun his new life!.This baby is such a good little boy, and needs reassurances on it. After all, someone callously dropped him off in the middle of nowhere. He is accepting this good life and it's amazing to see how in a short few days how things are looking up and he seems to sense that!

Despite this horrible thing, he has not lost his positive outlook. He is sniffing out adventures with Foster Mommy, and providing snuggles & wags on demand. Marley is up to date with all his vaccinations, and currently on some medication for some dry eye and his skin infection from the elements. Marley also just got back from the Dog Spa today, and has an appointment with the Doggo Dentist in April.

Marley is a 4 year old, 11 lb Yorkie with a heart of solid gold. Foster Mommy has certified him as Couch Cuddle Specialist, and he takes his duty seriously. He may be small in size, but is a giant on love. He is very well mannered and gets along with other pups his size, and is housebroken. Please watch out for more to come as we get to know this lil bundle of love better! If you have any questions about this lil guy, or want information on his adoption, please reach out to Foster Mommy at yorkierescuetexas@yahoo.com and fill our your application at www.uyr.us.

My name is Missy and I am the one of the newer kids on the block. I just got here to Foster Mom's house at 2:00 PM on January 8th, 2024 and this is my Freedom Ride photo going to my new happy place.

Stay tuned while we all get to know each other. I will be updating my biography in just a few days with much more information about me...BUT FM can already tell that I am a sweetheart, a kissy girl and probably a Velcro Pupper. She has been calling me Miss Missy because she believes that I am a Princess in disguise. She also calls me M & M because I am sweet as candy.

Talk to you very soon and better pictures promised!

THANK YOU TO MOCHA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Pam Roberts

Update 4/4/24: Happy Spring from Mocha! I'm enjoying the beautiful Spring weather of Texas Hill Country and having great times watching the butterflies and smelling all of the fresh new outdoor smells. I have a carefree and loving personality and I am told that I am a soulful little gal. The thing I like best in the whole world? Its to be in the lap of my person. I put the V in the term Velcro dog. I must warn you: I come with my own set of rules like: you will never go to the bathroom alone for the rest of your life and you will never walk from one room to another without me by your side.

I am a Yorkie mix and I'm in the 2nd month of a four month-long treatment plan to address heartworms. The vet says I'm otherwise in good health and I am working on my social skills and manners with my foster mom every day. I am protective of my family and my furever home needs to be a quiet and calm environment without children. I will do best as an only dog or with two or more other small dogs where I can settle into the pack. I am a smart young dog of school age and so I need reinforcement and instructions incorporated in my daily life. I really want to please my family, that's one way that I show my love!

I like to play with my toys every day and I will scramble after them when you toss them but I havent got the hang of bringing them back to you yet. My adoption fee is $1,000 and if youre interested, you can visit www.uyr.us and scroll to Adoption Applications; my foster mom will contact all applicants.

Initial Bio 2/20/24: Meet Mocha, a 2 year old, 11 lb Yorkie that's all sugar and no spice. She recently had puppies, but unfortunately, none of them survived, and she found herself abandoned in a shelter shortly afterwards. But UYR couldn't let this little lady languish like that. She is currently undergoing heartworm treatment and has a 4 month treatment plan started already. She is now current on all vaccinations and is awaiting a spay.

If you're looking for a furry friend to brighten up your days, look no further than Mocha, the adorable Yorkie who is ready to steal your heart. She is a bundle of joy wrapped in fur, with a playful personality that will make you smile from ear to ear. This little lady is always ready for a snuggle on the couch, or a walk around the block making every moment spent with her a special one.

With her silky coat and expressive eyes, Mocha is sure to turn heads wherever she goes. Whether you're out for a walk in the park or cuddled up at home, Mocha will be by your side, ready to shower you with love and affection. She is also a proper and classy lady, she is housetrained and only pottys outside.

Tilly and Wolfie are a bonded pair that have been together for the past ten years and therefore will need to remain together.

Tilly is spayed and is up to date on all of her shots. However, she is in dire need of a dental cleaning and tooth extraction. She has a history of a having a heart murmur and when x-rayed by UYRs vet she had a slightly enlarged heart. After careful evaluation and consideration UYRs vet is confident that Tilly is healthy enough for dental surgery which will greatly improve her quality of life as her mouth is painfully infected. Tilly was given an antibiotic shot to help with the mouth infection and is scheduled for the much-needed dental cleaning.

Tillys foster parents say that she has been a perfect house guest so far, she is housetrained, well mannered, sweet, and just a joy to have around. She wants to be next to you at all times, loves to be pet, loves belly rubs, and may cry just a little if you stop petting her too soon. Tilly also loves to go on walks with her brother Wolfie.

So, if you happen to be looking for two fun loving, easy going, laid back, super sweet dogs that love everyone they meet, look no further than Wolfie and Tilly.
