Alabama
Scout

Scout is a tiny little fella only weighing 4 pounds. He is only 18 months old and being fostered in Vestavia Hills, AL.

Scout will need to be adopted no more than 150 miles from his foster home.

Updated Bio 12/2/2021:

Sweet little Scout was neutered today. He got a great report from the vet and is home resting quietly. Check back often for more updates as Scout learns more about walking on a leash and becoming house trained.

Updated Bio: 11/27/2021

Scout recently went for a vet visit and got a great report. He received his vaccinations and is scheduled to be neutered soon.

Initial Bio: 11/24/2021

Meet Scout!! Scout is an 18-month-old parti Yorkie. Scout is an energetic little fella (only weighing 4 pounds) and loves playing with other dogs. Sadly, Scout did not receive the upbringing that he deserved. He had been neglected and came to us with a history of being food-deprived. Some of Scout's behaviors indicate that he was also abused. It takes time for Scout to develop trust in humans and he finds new experiences scary. He prefers to come to the humans for interaction instead of his humans approaching him. Despite this, Scout is a joyful pup and has a lifetime to bond with a perfect family.

Scout will not be available for several weeks as he will be receiving vaccinations. We need to allow him time to recover from being neutered as well. Scout currently uses a pee pad. His current foster family has been working with him on being house trained.

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING BEFORE APPLYING TO ADOPT SCOUT:

- Due to Scouts small size he cannot be adopted into a home with a child 12 years old or less.

- Scout must be adopted within a 150-mile range from his foster home in Vestavia Hills, Alabama.

- Because of Scout's previous neglect, he will need a forever home that will be patient in gaining his trust and building a lasting relationship.

Although Scout will not be available for adoption for several weeks, if you are interested, please contact his foster family or submit an application which will be held until he is medically cleared.


To date we've spent $196.39 on Scout's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Chauncey
California
Chauncey

Meet sweet Chauncey, a 4 pound, 14 year old Yorkie boy being fostered in Fullerton, CA. Only Southern CA applicants will be considered.

THANK YOU TO CHAUNCEY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Irene and Peter Havas in memory of darling Happy, Carol Nelson, Second Chances for Blind Dogs, Matthew Newman

UPDATE 9/5/2021: Chauncey completed his major dental. He had almost all his teeth removed. He is such a little trooper. This little 14 yo mostly blind dog navigates around his surroundings fearlessly. He loves to explore the house and he has his favorite spots. He will let you know if he gets stuck anywhere.

We are still working on house training. He does really well for having limited eye sight. He barks when he needs to go out. He often will use a pee pad if he finds it. At night he wears a belly band. He knows when I put his t-shirt on and his belly band that it is time for bed. I tell him Night Night and give him a kiss and place him in his bed.

Chauncey gets along well with other dogs.but likes to go off on his own. He and his Foster brother Koko often lie next to each other. He loves his baths and likes to be groomed but not close to his face.

Chauncey loves to cuddle but once he is done, he is off exploring once again. He has his favorite places to relax and sleep. At 14 yo, he sleeps a lot.

Chauncey is a good guard dog. Despite being almost blind, he will let you know if someone is at the door.

This little guy still has a lot of life left in him despite being 14 yo.and limited sight. He is a small but mighty little guy. We hope to get him cataract surgery at least in one eye. That will give him a better quality of life. If you can contribute that would be awesome. Thank you.

INITIAL BIO: 07/31/21. Rescuing a senior dog is like finding a vintage treasure. They have a story, and they have a soul. UYR finds them loving homes because they deserve to be cherished like the treasures they are.

There is nothing quite like the majesty of a senior dog and yesterday I had the honor of rescuing Chauncey, a 4lb / 14 year old from an LA Shelter. I have come to adore these senior dogs. The moment you wrap one in your arms and gently whisper you're safe now little one, you know they understand. No matter how sick or terrified they are they just intuitively feel the love in your heart. As I sat in my car waiting for sight-impaired Chauncy to be brought out, I imagined just how terrifying it must be for a tiny 4lb dog to be locked in a small steel cage, experiencing the loud sounds and chaos of a shelter, unable to see their surroundings. I knew that the dog I was about to meet was going to be petrified. As I took sweet Chauncy into my arms I could feel his stiff and rigid body trembling with fear. For the first hour we just sat in the cool air conditioned car as I held him close and kissed his head and face and explained that my presence on behalf of UYR meant that he'd never experience the horrors of another shelter for the rest of his life..

When we arrived at the Animal Hospital I unwrapped him from the towel.. This tiny little dog was filthy dirty, his hind legs covered in feces. My sadness and anger inspired me to get to work helping him, I just couldn't wait another minute. Off we went to the bathroom. I placed him in a sink and ever so gently began to wash him with warm water, hoping that each dirty paper towel I tossed in the trash was restoring his dignity just a little bit more.

An hour later, it was our turn to see the Vet. We had only spent a couple of hours together but this dog had bonded to me already, a true indication of just how terrified he must have been. Off he went for testing . as I prayed the results would be positive, and they were!! Chauncy has severe dental disease with gums so swollen they are literally pushing his teeth out. I cant even imagine the pain and agony he must be suffering. In addition, he has severe ocular disease is significantly sight impaired although he does have some limited sight. How much is yet to be determined. A complete senior blood panel was taken as well. Well have patiently await the results, but after the examination the Vet explained that she though he was in very good health. I felt like Id been holding my breath for hours just waiting and hoping to hear those very words. The results of Chauncey's blood work as well as his dental are scheduled for Monday.

Off we went to see Chauncey s new foster mom Rae, who has been involved with rescue for years and has enormous experience working with shelter dogs as well as dogs with sight impairment. After a few minutes of observing Chauncy walking and checking things out, Rae leaned down and scooped this tiny one into her arms. He seemed to think he recognized her, or perhaps he just felt her warmth and kindness he began kissing her face. I couldn't help but think .. 14 years old, tossed out like trash and left at a shelter to die, and this tiny little dog continues to love and want to be loved.. if you ever have the opportunity to witness these magical moments they are beautiful, extraordinary and powerful.

Dear Sweet Chauncey You are in the loving arms and care of United Yorkie Rescue now. We promise, you will never feel the hurt and despair of loneliness, neglect or abuse ever again. We will restore your health and with each new day you will feel our love, respect, kindness and compassion. We will help you regain your trust, will and confidence in the world and the guardians that surround you. I know you've heard these words before, perhaps many times, but today they have become your new reality and our heartfelt mission. Welcome to UYR Chauncy!!

Please continue to follow Chauncey as his Foster Mom Rae gets to know him better and guides him down the path to physical and mental health.


To date we've spent $1368.66 on Chauncey's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $901.23 in donations.

11/9/21 Update: Our Tiny & Spunky Phoebe- Snow had her first surgery yesterday, a dental to remove her remaining 8 teeth and assess her jaw and mandible. The news is great Phoebes jaw is perfectly normal on both sides and mandible on the right side is strong and able to adequately support her lower jaw. Her teeth were so loose they must have been causing her enormous pain. In just 12 hours, shes up and around, eating soft food and even joined us for a walk in the sunshine this morning. Phoebe-Snow has a strong will and is an incredibly resilient little lady!

Phoebes blood-work was repeated yesterday and came back perfectly normal!! Her white blood cells lower and red higher as we has hoped. Shes gained a half pound and is now at 4.5lbs. Her health has really improved. Were so happy shes been given the GREEN LIGHT for her mammary gland tumor surgery which is scheduled to take place during December. Her gorgeous brown eyes are looking beautiful and healthy and her coat is regaining luster and shine. Were overjoyed that this Little Lady is making great strides towards a new, beautiful and healthy life.

10/31/21 UPDATE: Tiny Phoebe-Snow has awakened to a brand new world over the past two weeks. Each day we strive to show her what her life should have been like from the very start. She eats four times a day and has stopped gulping her food down, knowing meals and food are abundant now. Her cries when she is alone have begun to subside and shes beginning to explore her surroundings a bit more, although shes always under my feet. Phoebe loves to be snuggled and kissed on the head and responds with her own tiny little kisses the sweetest thing ever! At night she just melts into my arms and kisses my hands until she gently drifts off to a peaceful sleep. She's a tiny living doll with a huge personality that doesn't often reveal itself so quickly in Puppy Mill Survivors. Phoebe has shown herself to be a Bossy Little Diva when it comes to other dogs Phoebes Totally Tiny & Mighty!

After two weeks of good nutrition, antibiotics and rest, Phoebe was evaluated for the two surgeries that will turn her life and future around. After a careful examination of her body and eyes it was determined that Phoebe is only 8 years old. A complete lack of medical care throughout her life has resulted in her appearing to be older than she really is. She will receive two different surgeries;

November 8th - Surgery #1 Phoebe has a severe infection in her mouth that is affecting her remaining teeth, gums and entire sinus cavity. This infection is causing her a significant amount of pain. One tooth in particular is impacted and is located near her damaged mandible and must be removed with extreme caution. Because the mandible on the right side of her mouth is intact, it is possible that the one on the left may actually begin to repair itself once the disease and impacted tooth are removed.

TBD Surgery #2 Sadly, Phoebe has tumors on 8 of her 10 mammary glands from over breeding. Can you even imagine? She has not been cleared for this surgery yet because her white blood cell count is too high as a result of the infection in her mouth. Once she recovers from dental surgery, she will be re-evaluated for tumor removal surgery. There is no indication that her cancer has spread and her tumors are not growing rapidly in size leaving us some time to continue to improve her health and ability to safely undergo this extensive surgery. She will be re-evaluated for this surgery when she has recovered from her dental issues.

Please join our UYR Team in keeping Tiny Phoebe-Snow in your thoughts and prayers as she continues on the road to physical and emotional health. Were grateful and excited that Phoebes prognosis is good and with your donations shell have the opportunity to make up for the time shes lost in the arms of Guardians that will Love, Cherish and Vow to keep her Healthy and Safe for the rest of her life!!

10/18/21 Initial Bio: On Monday October 11, we received a message from the Pasadena Humane Society requesting UYR assistance with a 13 year old, 4 pound un-spayed female found on the street as a stray Rescue Only due to her medical condition. For the five-day stray hold that followed, I had trouble thinking of much else. This tiny little girl, sick, in pain and in a little cage for days alone and petrified. As the week progressed, I became more anxious and prayed shed make it, having only limited knowledge of her medical history.

Friday arrived and I was out the door early to go meet this teeny tiny one and get her straight to the vet. When they brought her out and placed her in my arms, the relief I felt was overwhelming. Never in my life had I seen a Yorkie this small and skinny; she had lost weight from her estimated 4 pounds and was obviously very scared. I pulled away from the shelter and into the first gas station where I stopped, picked her up and wrapped my arms around her. Can you imagine, this tiny little girl crying, howling and barkingjust so frantic and confused.

After a while, she calmed down a bit. We were off to the vet. Driving and reflecting on this little one, I wondered, what kind of person would breed a tiny 4lb dog to line their pockets with cash for years and years and years, provide her with no medical care to the extent that dental decay had deteriorated her jaw bones and then dump this tiny little defenseless creature on the street when mammary gland tumors emerged, leaving her to die in desperate need of medical care. She was clearly in pain, alone and petrified.

Poor, poor Phoebe, with her severe dental disease, barely has a jaw left from bone loss. We await the results of the full battery of tests Phoebe received including a complete senior blood panel, x-rays of her head and body, and tests to determine if she has dry eye. Heartworm, fecal and urine tests were also performed. Perhaps most importantly, a biopsy was taken of Phoebes mammary chain tumors to determine if they are benign or malignant. These tests will all be evaluated to determine if Phoebes little body is strong enough to undergo surgery to remove her tumors, spay her and address her severe dental disease and jaw issues.

Phoebes soulful brown eyes tell her 13-year story, one of abuse, neglect and loneliness that are incredibly heartbreaking and so very sad. Tiny as she is, she has a spitfire attitude and a strong will to persevere. She is as spunky as they come and just loves going on long walks. Watching her hop and skip down the alley in the sunshine gave us such joy this past weekend. Each day, Phoebes anxiety seems to fade as she gains a sense of security and the desire to explore her surroundings a bit more. Antibiotics and pain medications are finally addressing what must have been excruciating pain from the severe infection in her mouth.

Phoebes past life experience haunts her as she still begs for her basic needs to be met Phoebe doesnt like to be left alone and cries when she cant see you. Shell whimper if shes hungry, thirsty, has to go potty or if she feels insecure, scared or confused. If you lift her up, give her a hug and whisper softly in her ear or rub your cheek against her face she calms right down and gratefully says I Think Im OK Now with soft sweet kisses. When you watch her burrow under soft, clean blankets, snuggle in to get nice and comfy and lay her head down to rest peacefully, you just cant help reflecting on her horrific past and praying for the prospects of her beautiful new future which we know will be happier now that she is in our care.

We will continue to update here as we determine her treatment plan. We hope her kidney function is normal so we can safely move forward with the surgeries. As you can imagine, Phoebes care is going to be a HUGE expense for UYR.

UPDATED BIO 11/11/2021: Bowie was surrendered to a vet's office to be euthanized because the owners were no longer able to care for this sweet & precious boy. He desperately needed a dental and neuter, which was done by the generous & caring vet who contacted United Yorkie Rescue to see if we could bring him into our group. Bowies mouth was horribly infected and he lost all of his remaining 6 teeth, but he has no trouble eating for sure! Bowie loves mealtime and gets very animated when he knows his meal is being prepared.

FAST FORWARD 10 weeks Bowie began the first step of heartworm treatment shortly after arriving into his UYR foster home following the protocol established by the American Heartworm Society. His first injection of melarsomine was done on 11/02, and his second and third injections are scheduled for 12/01 and 12/02. This is the drug that kills adult heartworms. Bowie must remain in his foster home until his heartworm treatment is completed and will be available for adoption late December/early January.

Bowie was a very fearful and timid little boy when he first arrived in his foster home 10 weeks ago. He would crouch when his foster parents approached him and bury his head in his front paws. He initially preferred to isolate himself from both humans and the resident dogs in the home most of the time. His foster mom believes that he had been kept outside all of his life, and maybe even mistreated, which is profoundly sad.

Bowie has gained much more confidence and is now very engaged with his foster parents. He is even trying to initiate play with the senior 16 year old dog in the home, who would prefer to lie in her warm bed and sleep lol! He will come up to his foster mom for petting, but still tends to crouch a bit when petted, although he is getting much more acccepting of this. He is not as confident with men at this point, but is getting much better. He does crave human interaction and wants to be close to his foster mom.

Bowie loves being outside in his fenced-in yard and is always reluctant to come in when called. It appears that Bowie has never been taught proper potty protocol, and his foster mom is diligently working with him on this. This will need to be reinforced in his adoptive home as well. He is also learning to walk confidently on a leash, but there are so many smells along the way that keep distracting him lol! Bowie is a very VERY sweet little boy who is so deserving of a loving forever home with patient and caring parents where he will receive lots of love and attention.

Although Bowie will not be cleared for adoption quite yet, if you are interested in adopting him, please contact his foster mom for more details, or submit an adoption application which will be held until he has completed his heartworm treatment. Please follow Bowies journey as he is going through this treatment.

Bowie's heartworm treatment is costing hundreds of dollars, so we are reaching out to our angel donors and asking for donations to cover this large expense. UYR would never turn away a potential foster dog that has tested positive for heartworms, and your donation(s) will enable us to continue to rescue and treat other incoming foster dogs that may be heartworm positive. If you are unable to donate, please say some prayers that Bowie will be able to endure the next rigorous round of heartworm treatment with no complications.

PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING BEFORE APPLYING FOR BOWIE JONES:

- Due to Bowies small size, he cannot go into a home with children under the age of 14 years old.

- Bowie is following the lead of the resident dogs in the home, and his foster mom thinks that he would be happiest in a home with another calm, confident and loving brother or sister close to his age and size who can be a companion and playmate for Bowie.

Bowie's mouth was horribly infected and he lost all of his remaining 6 teeth, but he has no trouble eating for sure!

Bowie is a very shy and timid little boy and this may just be his personality. He has been in his foster home for 6 weeks now and at first preferred to isolate himself most of the time. He has now become interested in the little resident dogs in his home, and has even tried to initiate play with them. Bowie loves mealtime and gets very animated when he knows his meal is being prepared. He will come up to his foster mom for petting, but tends to crouch low to the floor when petted, although he is getting more confident about this. He is not so sure about men at this point. This is sad since this type of behavior indicates that perhaps he may have been mistreated in his previous life. Bowie loves being outside and is always reluctant to come in when called, but he is doing better as time goes by. He is a very VERY sweet little boy who is so deserving of a loving forever home where he will receive lots of love and patient and caring parents.

Because Bowie was not given heartworm preventative in his previous home, sadly he is heartworm positive. This is unfortunate as now this precious little fella must endure months of heartworm treatment and strict confinement including crate rest. He is currently not exhibiting any outward signs of heartworms, so that is a good thing and he has already begun the heartworm treatment protocol established by the American Heartworm Society. His first injection of melarsomine will be 11/02, followed by the second & third injections one month later. This is the drug that kills adult heartworms.

Bowie's mouth was horribly infected and he lost all of his remaining 6 teeth, but he has no trouble eating for sure!

Bowie had his re-check with the vet a few days ago and he is doing great. The oronasal fistulas that were repaired are almost healed and he is feeling much better. He has a little pep to his step that he didnt have when he came into his foster home and loves human attention. He is a little fearful about being picked up and this may cease as he gets more comfortable in his foster home. Even though he was the only dog in his previous home, he is getting along very well with the 3 resident dogs in his foster home, so a home with perhaps one other dog as a companion would be great for this sweet boy. He loves attention and so far is a very quiet, mellow little fella.

He desperately needed a dental and neuter, which has been done by the generous & caring vet who contacted United Yorkie Rescue to see if we could bring him into our group. Bowies mouth was horribly infected and he lost all of his remaining 6 teeth. He also had two oronasal fistulas as a result of the severe periodontal disease. An oronasal fistula happens when the tissue erodes away due to decay and forms a fistula between the oral cavity and nasal passageways, and can cause great discomfort and plain. These were repaired during his dental. Poor little fella

Bowie just came into rescue today, so we are still learning about his personality. The vets office who has had him in their care said that he is a very sweet little boy who loves attention. We do not know yet if he gets along with other dogs or cats, but theres plenty of time to learn about his personality so stay tuned. PLEASE NOTE: Due to Bowies small size, he cannot be adopted into a home with children 12 years or less.

Cody

Cody is a cute very sweet young Yorkie mix fella weighing 13.8 pounds. He is 5 years old and being fostered in Clearwater, FL.

All dogs fostered in the state of Florida must be adopted within the State of Florida.

Initial Bio 12/05/2021. Hello Everyone, I am Cody. I am a very sweet 5 year old boy. I am working with my foster parents for some socialization skills because no one ever cared to work with me as I was a stray rescued from the shelter. I do not do well with large dogs but I like dogs that are my size. I prefer women although I do like that right type of man also who is gentle with me. I am working hard to learn to be the best dog I can be so that I can go to my forever home with a parent or parents who will love me. I have never been around children so I do not know how I would be with them.

Updated Bio 12/01/2021:

Louie has been patiently waiting at his foster home for a couple of months now. All he wants for the holidays is a family to call his very own! He promises to be such a good boy. He will work on his house training (he does great most days), and his barking at dogs out on walks. Hes a senior fella with lots of energy for walks and absolutely loves attention and snuggles with his favorite human. Could your home be the perfect home for Louie to rest his head? Hes been through so much pain and suffering in his past and truly deserves a loving forever home this holiday season!

UPDATED BIO 10/31/2021: Louie was rescued from the streets by Animal Control and taken to the local shelter. He was very matted and was either sadly neglected for a long time or on the streets for weeks. Louie was full of fleas and had a large dangling mass on his lower jaw. The shelter vet surgically removed the horrific infected mass. This poor little fella must have been in so much pain from this severely infected tumor.

FAST FORWARD 6 weeks: Foster mom says that Louie is a very sweet senior who loves attention and loves food even more! She has to watch out and not get between Mister Louie and his food once he starts eating because he does sometimes defend it.

He recently had a dental appointment and it was determined that it would be best to remove the few remaining teeth he had because they were in very bad shape. Since having all of his teeth pulled, he is like a brand new dog and feeling so much better! He must have been in a lot of pain from infected teeth.

Thankfully, the horrific infected and oozing wound on Louies jaw from the tumor removal is also healing very well and is barely even visible now. Foster mom is continuing to work on house training and with frequent breaks he seems to do pretty well but may still has occasional accidents.

Louie loves going for shorter walks, and then taking a long nap afterwards. A nice sun bath outside on the lanai also makes him very happy. He occasionally has a slight limp on his back leg and from time to time will hold it up, but the vet did not see anything to warrant X-rays or further testing at this point. It was suspected that he might have some arthritis so he is now taking a daily liquid glucosamine supplement mixed in his food and that should continue in his forever home.

Louie is both hearing and vision-impaired but that doesnt hamper his enthusiasm for life. He will take snuggle time anytime and will ask Foster Mom for more if she stops petting him sweet! He really enjoys all the affection he can get. He is an older gentlemen, but he has made such an improvement with his health since being in his foster home and would love to have a forever snuggle place of his very own.

Please don't turn away from Louie since he is a senior dog. Senior dogs like senior people still need love, companionship and the desire to give/receive love. Senior dogs have so much love to give and once you have had a senior dog in your home, you will realize what a blessing it is to both you and the dog. Louies vetting expenses were $1,400 +; if his story has touched your heartstrings, please consider making a donation to UYR to help with his vet bills so that we can continue to take in medically needy and senior dogs like Louie.

UPDATED BIO 9/28/2021: Louie was picked up off the streets by Animal Control and taken to the local shelter. He was very matted and was either sadly neglected for a long time or on the streets for weeks. He lost his long beautiful coat since he had to be shaved down due to severe matting, but it will grow in much nicer very soon. Louie was full of fleas and had a large dangling mass on his lower jaw. The fleas are all gone and the shelter vet surgically removed the horrific infected mass. This poor little fella must have been in so much pain from this severely infected tumor.

Fast Forward two weeks. Louie is adjusting very well in his foster home. He is having very few potty accidents inside the house as he is getting used to his new environment and feeling more comfortable. Louie's post-surgery wound from the tumor was cleaned by the vet and new antibiotics along with pain medication were prescribed. He also received some much-needed grooming while being at the vet.

Louies horrific wound from the tumor is healing, and he will soon be able to have a dental. He is a senior fella who is very mellow and loving at home, but has good energy when going for walks which he loves to do. He does not jump on furniture, but he loves to come up and be petted and ask for more pets if foster mom dares to stop.

Sweet Louie is really enjoying feeling safe and starting to heal physically and mentally and foster mom sees an improvement every day. He gets along well with other dogs, but he sometimes barks at dogs or people outside if he considers them to be "suspicious". He's quick to point out any shenanigans in the neighborhood that he doesn't approve of. He appears to have some hearing loss and his vision is a little impaired as well, that that is expected of a little senior fella. Louie has a great appetite and is very food motivated. This sweet little fella receives lots of snuggles and naps in soft beds, which he so richly deserves. Please stay tuned to learn more about Louie.

INITIAL BIO 9/15/21 Poor Louie was picked up off the street by Animal Control and taken to the local shelter. He is very matted and may have been either sadly neglected for a long time or on the streets for weeks. He will get a grooming soon and may end up having to be shaved way down. He was full of fleas and had a large dangling mass on his lower jaw. The shelter gave him a Capstar to kill the fleas. The shelter vet surgically removed the mass. After it was dissected it was found to be very infected. They gave him antibiotics and treated the area. This poor little guy must have been in so much pain from this severely infected tumor.

The shelter held him for 5 days while the staff and Louis waited for his people to come get him. Sadly, no one came to claim this sweet, friendly fellow as theirs. Today, though, he did get claimed. United Yorkie Rescue claimed him as their little rescue pup and right now he is having a spa day at his new foster home.

Louie will see the vet very soon to have his mouth looked at and for a complete well-doggie check up. We don't know much more about him except we do know he will never be left to wander the streets alone again. Come back soon to get to know Louis better along with us.

It is different in my foster home. I will like it here.

I think I am pretty cute. You know I am.
Florida
Milo

Milo is a sweet Yorkie boy. He weighs a little too chubby 10 pounds. This fella is only 2 years old. Milo is being fostered in Leesburg, FL.

Dogs being fostered in Florida need to be adopted within the state of Florida.

THANK YOU TO MILO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Laura Barry, Karen Foltz

Initial bio 11/27/21 Milo just arrived at his foster home. Hespent his first few minutes walking around the fenced backyard sniffing and exploring everything in his reach. Milo just turned 2 years old on Nov. 19th. Being so young he still has some puppy behavior and energy in him.

Milo will need to lose just a little weight to be at a more healthy weight. Running around the backyard with his foster brother should help. His former owners said he is not leash trained yet so he needs a fenced yard. Hopefully he will get better on a leash, although he will spend most of his outdoor time in the fenced yard playing and exploring.

His foster parents are not sure if he is house trained, but he may use the potty pad, and he does need to be taken out often. He is good in the car, sleeps in his crate at night with the door open, and like most young Yorkies he likes to give the birds and squirrels a good chase.

Milo will see the vet soon. He needs his vaccinations updated, a heartworm test, a fecal test, and his neuter. Once he has been medically cared for and his foster mom and dad get to know his personality, which can take 2-3 week, he will be ready for his forever home. This adorable fellow will be a great little guy for the right family. There will be so much more to know about Milo, come back soon if you want to find out whatthat is.


To date we've spent $116.81 on Milo's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $70 in donations.

I am such a pretty girl. I really like my foster home.
Florida
Roxie

Roxie is an adorable little 9 pound 3 1/2 year old blond Yorkie Mix. She is being fostered in Vero Beach, FL.

Dogs being fostered in Florida need to be adopted within the state of Florida.

12/4/21 INITIAL BIO. Say hello to Roxie. This sweet as sugar little girl has not had the best start in life. She was kept in a crate by her first owner for hours and hours each day. This owner then decided to put her on Craig's list for sale. She could go to anyone who would give him money and whatever fate befell beautiful, little Roxie, wasn't his problem. As luck would have it a very nice woman paid him the money just to save Roxie from a possible fate. This lovely person had Roxie groomed as she was matted to the skin, had her spayed, and had the vet give Roxie her rabies shot.

After having Roxie for a few short months, and getting her better socialized, she knew it was time for Roxie to find her last true forever home. Roxie is a sweetheart. According to her previous owner, Roxie loves people, and will sit on her person's lap and cuddle and give kisses. She gets along with other dogs, eats well, sleeps in her doggie bed at night, and is fine on the leash. There seems to be only one not so perfect thing. At one time Roxie must have used a potty pad. Now every little piece of carpet on the floor is just nice soft potty pad and to Roxie that means it's the right place to tinkle on. At this time we are sure Roxie needs a home with no carpet.

When Roxie's hair grows back in, she will be even more beautiful. Roxie will need to see the vet to be fully vaccinated and get her well doogie check. Her foster parents are ready to get to know Roxie so they can find her the most perfect final and forever home. More to come soon along with pictures of how much more beautiful she will soon be.


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

Sunny Boy is Looking For Love!
Florida
Sunny Boy

Sunny Boy is a 3-year-old (estimated), 14-pound schnauzer mix. He is being fostered in Summerfield, FL.

Dogs being fostered in Florida must be adopted within the state of Florida.

THANK YOU TO SUNNY BOY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

THANK YOU TO SUNNY BOY'S FACEBOOK DONORS!

UPDATED BIO 12/03/2021:

Sunny was recently adopted but sadly his new home was not the right one so Sunny Boy is back with us and is now looking for a second chance at forever love. Sunny is a sweet, handsome boy with a SILKY SOFT coat. He looks small in his photos but his is actually a bigger boy at 14 pounds. While we dont know for certain what his family tree is made up of ANYONE CAN SEE he is 100% PRECIOUS!

Before his rescue, Sunny Boy was picked up by animal control skinny, injured and in pain. The shelter contacted us to help and soon a UYR member arrived and Sunny got his Freedom Ride straight to the Dogtor. Numerous X-rays were taken and we learned that Sunny had a badly fractured pelvis, most likely the result of being hit by a car. He was evaluated by a veterinary surgeon specialist as well as a general Vet and both advised against surgery for Sunny. Instead they recommended confinement to his crate with very limited activity for 4 weeks in order to allow the fractures time to heal and that is exactly what we did. Sunny was kept comfortable with pain medication and given the care, love and support he needed and in time his broken bones healed.

But that isnt the end of Sunnys story. Sadly, Sunny has some broken pieces that arent visible on X-rays or to the naked eye. Poor Sunny suffers from separation anxiety and is prone to barking and howling to vocalize his fears when he is left alone. While we cant know what Sunnys life was like before he came to us, we can only imagine how traumatizing it must have been for him to become lost, get hit by a car, sustain multiple fractures, land in an overcrowded noisy shelter, be taken by strangers to a new home where he was confined (for his healing) and then adopted and returned in a very short time. WHO WOULDNT be anxious after going through ALL THAT?!? But we are DEFINITELY BELIEVERS here at United Yorkie Rescue and we believe that with time and understanding Sunny can overcome his fears.

Our top priority for Sunny this time around is finding a calm, stable, and COMMITTED adopter who wont give up on him. More than ANYTHING ELSE, he needs a patient, mostly stay-at-home person who loves him in spite of his fears and will help him learn to manage them. As for the present time, when Sonny is left alone he WILL BARK and is also prone to puppy shenanigans like exploring the bathroom trash can and doubling as a canine paper-shredder. If you live in an apartment or share walls with neighbors then Sunny is probably not the dog for you.

Sunny has just arrived in his new foster home. So far he has been sweet, playful, and gets along well with the other well mannered small dogs in his foster home. He walks well on a leash, enjoys mealtime and travels well in a car. However, Sunny Boys former adopters owned an RV and liked spending time camping in RV parks. Sunny was NOT A FAN of being left inside the camper while his humans were out exploring so if you plan to take him camping you should ALSO PLAN to take Sunny with you on ALL YOUR adventures and not leave him behind. Sunny wants his FUREVER PAWRENTS to want to BE WITH HIM as much as HE WANTS TO BE WITH YOU!

If you think that YOU check all the boxes on Sunnys wish list then apply to adopt him TODAY!

I sure do need a spa day

I know my foster mommy and daddy are going to fix me all up
Florida
Teena Rose

Say hello to tiny teeny Teena Rose. This little Yorkie girl is only 4 pounds. She is approximately 9 years old. Teena Rose is being fostered in Stuart, FL.

Dogs being fostered in the state of Florida need to be adopted within the state of Florida

INITIAL BIO 12/4/21 Imagine this--a 4-pound tiny little dog alone on the street. Was she lost, abandoned, thrown away, who knows? What we did know is that she was certainly homeless. That's what happened to Teena Rose, this very tiny teeny little girl.

Teena Rose spent her first week in the shelter waiting for someone to want her and come get her. Of course no one came, no one wanted her. Well, United Yorkie Rescue did. We know so little about Teena. What we do know isn't great. She needs a dental very badly. She is not spayed and has some small mammary masses. Maybe at one time she had puppies, we don't know.

Her teeth and breath are so bad she may end up toothless, but that's okay. And she doesn't smell very good, in fact she is pretty stinky, but her name is Teena Rose. Rose because soon this little teeny girl will have bloomed into a beautiful, wonderful smelling rose. She will get her spa day, she will have her bath and her much needed grooming. Her toe nails will be trimmed, and she will become Teena Rose for sure.

We know so little about Teena Rose's personality. We don't know what she likes to do. We don't know if she is a good eater or sleeper, if she likes other dogs, cats, if she walks well on a leash, if she is house trained, what she needs in a forever home. So much to learn, all the things anyone needs to know about a little pup, we will need to learn about Teena Rose. This will be an exciting journey for Teena Rose and for United Yorkie Rescue. Her foster parents are ready to do whatever necessary for this tiny girl to go from a neglected, scared little pup so that she really becomes Teeny Tiny Teena Rose. Please, follow her journey. We hope it is a wonderful, happy, remarkable one.


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

Phoebe

Meet Phoebe, a sweet 10 year old, 5 pound Yorkie mix being fostered in Frederick, MD. Applicants must be within a 100 mile radius of her foster home.

THANK YOU TO PHOEBE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Geoffrey Washington, Nicole Lane

INITIAL BIO: 06/25/21. Phoebe is a petite senior girl being fostered in Frederick, MD. Phoebe became a shelter favorite while she recovered from an ear infection. She stayed at the front desk during her three week convalesce. When it was time for her to move on, they wanted a rescue to find the right home for this little darling.

The family stated she was 14 years old, but the vets feel she could be as young as 10. She gets around perfectly and she got a very good report at her checkup. Phoebe is a cuddler. She wants attention and doesn't like being alone. Her housetraining is fine if she has a pad, can go out right after naps, and is on a schedule. Phoebe's short haircut is growing out and she is definitely a Yorkiepoo. Her markings are Yorkie but her curls are definitely Poodle. Phoebe gets along with cats and other dogs. She is looking for a home where she can get the attention she deserves.


To date we've spent $270.23 on Phoebe's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $103.5 in donations.

THANK YOU TO BANDO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Angie Cagle, Emily Nessler, Ellen Chokreff, Elba Short, Barbara Burgess, Yvette Vangeloff, Lauren Satterfield, Wendy Fuhrmaneck

UPDATE 11/20/21: I had my big surgery on 11/8/21 and I feel like a million bucks! Im off crate rest and running around FMs backyard...life is good. Once I have my teeth cleaned, I will be looking for my furever home. FM says Im pretty perfect and would do great with a busy family or a retired person.

This boy is 6 years old and weighs a whooping 16 lbs. Hes a big Teddy bear and wants to be stuck to you like glue, so much so that when hes on your lap you can feel him leaning into you. Bando loves to be loved and always wants your hand on him.

Initial Bio: 10/30/21 I was surrendered because my Mom couldnt provide the critical care I needed. She had done everything possible to help me with this problem I had but in the end, she knew she needed to get me into rescue so I could get a second chance, and I will love her forever for that.

I met my Foster mom and and within an hour I was whisked away to the Emergency Veterinary Hospital for surgery for bilateral Perineal Hernia repair. I spent 4 days in the hospital, and I didn't know anyone there, but people would come by and pat my head and tell me how brave I was and that I'd feel better soon. They were right, I have a big ouchie and its not easy to sit until it fully heals but I feel so much better.

I'm going to lay low for 2-3 weeks in my crate and gradually build up my strength; stay tuned for an update.

Barbara Burgess

Initial Bio 12/1/21 Meet sweet Aggie Rose. She ended up in a shelter and the shelter reached out to rescue for medical issues. She has some hair that is missing and very flakey itchy skin. Her little tongue hangs out and we thought maybe she didn't have any teeth but she does have 3 and will need a dental unless they fall out first. She is now up to date on all shots, microchipped and she was previously spayed. Aggie had an antibiotic shot for her skin and will need medicated baths 3 times a week. She will have a recheck with the vet in two weeks to see how she is doing and then we can schedule the dental. Stay tuned for updates.

10/27/2021

Update: Emmitt came through his surgeries wonderfully. He has recovered nicely. He still has a great amount of anxiety. He will come to you on his own terms and let you pet him and rub his back. He still shows his feistiness regularly. Emmitt is still fearful when you pick him up and this causes him to react in the only way he knows how. He will growl and snap, he is small and has very few teeth so foster mom is able to manage him. We continue on working to build his trust. Foster mom will sing to him when she picks him up and continue to pet him until he calms down this does sometimes take a good 10 to 15 minutes but if she is able to get him to relax she can rub his belly and he will lay with her for a long period of time. Emmitt is totally blind but able to find his way around the house. He eats well and loves his treats. He is happy to share his bed with other dogs but can get a little anoid when one of the bumps into him. This sweet baby is going to need lots of patience and time to learn humans arent all bad. Please continue to pray for him. If you feel led donations toward his care are appreciated.

09/21/2021 Updated: Emmitt has had a busy month... He came from a shelter in New York. Where he most likely would have been euthanized, because of his health issues. He was transported to RI where his foster learned he was a scared feisty boy that had a severe corneal ulcer. He no longer trusted humans. Foster mom had to give him eye medication several times a day trying to save his eye. After a month in RI it was decided it would be in his best interest to be transferred to Tennessee. Making arrangements for him to be transported to TN was a challenge. We exhausted several transportation options, finally it was decided that his new foster would fly to RI and bring him back. There was a wonderful Angel who donated the cost of flight. This was a long day for foster mom and Emmitt. His new foster mom quickly found out that he was a small boy ready to take on the world and yes he was scared and fiesty. He was scheduled for an appointment with the dogtor to have him examined and evaluate the progress that was made with all the eye drops he had been using to heal his corneal ulcer. The dogtor recommended that we remove Emmitt's eye. He felt that this would be best for this little guy he couldn't see out of his eye anyway and he is blind but this does not hold him back. It was difficult to gain his trust when you are having to medicate his eyes every few hours and not seeing enough of an improvement to justify the current treatment. He was scheduled for his neuter as well as the eye removal. He will have a dental appointment at a later date. That is a whole other situation. His teeth are in terrible shape and the dogtor discovered his jaw was broken as well... This poor baby has been suffering. His surgery was 1 week ago and he is doing well. We are still working on trust issues with him. He doesn't like loud noises and seems to do best when you talk to him softly. Next week he will have his dental and they will also try to repair his jaw the best they can. He has very few teeth and they are all in bad shape. No telling how many teeth he will lose. Once we have completed all of his surgeries it will be time to begin earning his trust back and teaching him that all humans are not bad. Please help us by donating to Emmitt's care. At this time we do not have a time frame for when he might be available for adoption. Please be patient as we work with this baby... Follow his story on our website or Facebook.

8/13/21 Initial Bio: Emmitt just came into rescue from a shelter in New York. He has some corneal ulcers which are currently being treated. Please watch for further updates on this cutie

Rocky

Rocky is a Cairn Terrier mix who is estimated to be 6 years old, he weighs 9 pounds and is being fostered near Ashland City, TN

THANK YOU TO ROCKY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Sandy Pagnotta, RVF Garden Supply Inc., Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Trula Montgomery

Updated Bio 10/31/21

Rocky was in a shelter who reached out to United Yorkie Rescue. He needed his medical needs taking care of. Rocky was coughing and Foster Mom thought it could be trachea issues, The Dogtor thought maybe Kennel cough but when she listened to his heart she heard a significant heart murmur. They did an X-Ray which showed a very enlarged heart so he has a heart murmur of a grade 6 out of 6 . He is in congestive heart failure. The Dogtor has started him on Lasics and Vetmedin. We believe this is helping. He can also have Hydrocodone syrup at night to help him sleep and not cough. We did increase his lasics a bit and he is not coughing as much as he was. He will have an echo of his heart done in December ( that is the earliest they could get him in) to see if it will be safe to put him under for a neuter and a dental. Rocky is a great dog!! He has lots of love to give, walks great on a leash, wants affection and gives affection, he eats good and rides well in a car. We arent sure how long Rocky will live with congestive heart failure but he does need someone to love and care for him and give him the best life. When United Yorkie Rescue takes in these stray dogs in a shelter we never know their medical conditions until they come into rescue. Just because they may or may not have long to live doesnt mean they dont need someone to love and care for them. Believe me they give so much love in return. Do you have it in your heart to love him and give him the care he needs? If so please email foster mom at mandy@unitedyorkierescue.org. If you would like to donate to his care please click the PayPal button underneath.

Initial Bio 10/12/21: Meet Rocky who is the sweetest dog ever. He has had a rough go and was in a shelter who reached out to United Yorkie Rescue. We dont know much about his history. Foster mom says he is super smart. He loves to go for car rides and he walks perfectly on a leash. Rocky gets along with all humans and is easygoing. He had a visit with the Dogtor today. He had bloodwork and his heart worm and fecal test. All turned out great! Rocky has been coughing and Foster Mom thought it could be trachea issues, The Dogtor thought maybe Kennel cough but when she listened to his heart she heard a significant heart murmur. They did an X-Ray which showed a very enlarged heart so he has a heart murmur of a grade 6 out of 6 . He is in congestive heart failure. The Dogtor has started him on Lasics and Vetmedin. He will have an echo of his heart done soon to see if it will be safe to put him under for a neuter and a dental. Someone loved Rocky and maybe couldnt afford his care. He is so well behaved he was someones dog and was loved. Even though he has congestive heart failure, he will still need to be loved and cared for till it is his time. Do you have it in your heart to love him and give him the care he needs? If so please email foster mom at mandy@unitedyorkierescue.org.

THANK YOU TO BENJAMIN'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Lyn Symms

Initial Bio 11/14/21: Meet our very sweet Benjamin!

Benjamin was rescued from a backyard breeder, where he was rarely allowed to go outside. His hair was matted, his nails were so long they had started to curl, and his teeth are in bad shape from a lifetime of eating "people cookies for the most part or poor quality canned food". But the vet says he's otherwise in surprisingly good health, and after his dental and a few weeks of good nutrition, Benjamin should be in good shape.

This little boy is an absolute sweetheart and loves to snuggle and be petted. He gets along well with other dogs and is learning to go for walks. He enjoys being outside on sunny days, but his favorite thing is to sit in a lap and get loved on. He's timid but super affectionate. Were working on getting him used to clipping on a leash and getting picked up, two things that currently stress him out. He's had a couple of accidents indoors but has overall been pretty good about going potty outside. This baby is looking for someone to spoil him with lots of love!

Benjamin's neuter and dental are scheduled for the end of November, so he should be ready for adoption in mid-December, once he's recovered.


To date we've spent $1017.25 on Benjamin's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $100 in donations.

Coco

Coco

Meet Coco, a sweet 3 year old, 10 pound Yorkie girl being fostered in Azle, TX.

THANK YOU TO COCO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Pam Roberts, Anita Mathes, Linda Neilson

9/12/21: Coco is healing nicely from the orthopedic surgery on her shattered pelvis. She still has a limp and seems to be a little painful. Foster mom is doing water therapy with her and we will have current x-rays reviewed by the surgeon that performed her surgery. Coco is a mild, gentle girl and she may always have a limp and is at risk to have arthritis in that area so foster mom and the vet have her on a joint supplement and Omega 12 for her skin.

Coco needs a low key home with no children and people who will love her, a family that will keep up with her supplements and make sure she has regular vet visits to stay on top of any issues that may come up with her from her pelvic surgery. Precious Coco was just spayed and is resting comfortably. She loves to cuddle, sleeping with foster mom and dad, and is hungry for attention. If you think you have the perfect home for Coco, please fill out an application clicking on the link below.

7/27/21 Initial Bio: Hello, meet sweet, sweet Coco. Coco was brought to an animal shelter after being hit by a car. Coco sustained major fractures and breaks to her pelvic area. The skilled veterinarian surgeons put this baby back together and the Animal shelter called UYR to take over the care of this little girl. SHE is heartworm negative and only about three weeks out from her surgery. It will take at least another three weeks for her to heal. While in UYRs care, Coco is rehabbing with foster mom. Coco is up and walking gently but foster mom is doing some water therapy with her and she is getting better. Coco is healing nicely and once she has the all clear from her surgery, she will need to be spayed. Coco was a mere 8 pounds when she came to UYR and it appears she may have lived on the street for a bit. Foster mom makes sure Coco eats good dog food and feeds her several times a day. This little girl has come a long way and her prognosis is good!!! Coco needs to be in a home with adults that will just love and snuggle with her. She is hungry for affection and has latched onto foster mom and foster dad quickly. She will need someone that will follow up with the vet to make sure everything is healing well. She is not a candidate for a home with children. If you think you can give Coco the forever life she deserves, please fill out an application at uyr.us.


To date we've spent $999.05 on Coco's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $300 in donations.
Please donate!

Davey

Meet sweet Davey, a very ill little Yorkie boy who is being fostered in Azle, TX. Right now, Davey went right to the Emergency Critical Care facility in Dallas where he is being treated for kidney failure and pancreatitis. He will not be available for adoption for some time until we get his little body back on track.

UPDATE November 13, 2021 We have good news and potentially bad news about Davey. Keep in mind, this boy is a fighter. The great news is that the CT Scan showed that Davey did not have a mass behind his eye but instead he has an abscess that appears to be coming from his mouth. This is good news. Once the abscess was confirmed, the hospital started Davey on IV antibiotics and hoped he might be eating by today. A call from the veterinary internist this morning was not as good. The swelling in Daveys face and around the eye has began to go down but the eye itself will not close. The vet staff are keeping his eye lubricated and the ophthalmologist is working with his team to try to save the eye. The internist needs to keep Davey in the hospital and hopes that they will see some improvement in the swelling as the day goes on. The abscess is being cultured and we hope to learn soon what type of infection he is fighting. The other good news is that Daveys fever is gone however, the vet did blood work and his sugar levels are a little low but that could be due to him not eating for several days however the vet is keeping a close eye on him. On Monday, the veterinarian team will make a decision about Daveys eye if the swelling has not subsided. They may need to take the eye out and clean out all the infection but we are in a holding pattern until then. This little guy is being kept comfortable the most important part - and receiving lots of care. Please continue to support United Yorkie Rescue. If the vet team needs to do surgery on Monday, that will be another expense for this little guy plus continued support in the hospital. As we come up on this Thanksgiving season and the spirit of giving, we would appreciate you thinking of us as we continue to help Davey fight off this infection. We appreciate all of you that have given to this guy and for your positive thoughts and continued prayers. We still need your help and ask that you consider giving to United Yorkie Rescue. Continue to send prayers and positive thoughts for this little fighter.

Updated bio 11/11/21 Davey update - We need your help again with this little guy!!!! Davey has been doing great until yesterday, November 10, 2021. Foster mom noticed he was not acting like himself and with his history of kidney disease and pancreatitis, she was not taking any chances and had him in the vet that morning. Daveys temperature was 104 and his blood work showed he had an infection somewhere but the vet was not sure where. The vet started him on an antibiotic and told Foster Mom to watch him and call if he was not better the next morning.

This morning, November 11, 2021, foster mom immediately saw that Davey had a problem with his right eye. It was protruding a bit and oozing. Foster Mom had Davey back in the vet before 9 a.m. The pressure in his right eye was very high and when the vet tried to get him into an ophthalmologist, they could not see him so the Daveys wonderful veterinarian suggested I get him in through the animal emergency. If you have never had a dog with a bulging eye, it is very, very painful. Foster Mom took Davey to the animal emergency room/hospital. The vet ophthalmologists, located at the ER hospital, were in surgery so the Emergency room vet sent Daveys records with a tech to the operating room for the ophthalmologist to look at. Ophthalmology, internal medicine, and the emergency vet all agreed that Davey needed to be hospitalized for pain control and he needed a scan to see what is going on behind the eye. His scan is scheduled for tomorrow morning.

Right now, we have incurred a $1,000 emergency room vet bill for today, and the scan will be about $2500 and this does not include the treatment once the vets figure out what is going on with this little 5 pound guy. Davey is a fighter. He fought through pancreatitis, his kidney disease is now well managed through diet and his personality is one that he does not realize he is only 5 pounds. We really need your help financially to continue to treat Davey. As long as Davey wants to fight, we are going to help him and give him every opportunity to beat whatever is going on with him. As always, we so appreciate our donors and every little bit will help. You can go to our website at www.uyr.us to make a donation for Davey. Thank you again for all your help and prayers that this little guy will continue to fight.

10/3/21: Davey is doing much better now. Davey was released from the ER on August 25, 2021 and went back to his original foster mom. The ER wanted to leave the feeding tube in Davey because he was not eating well but UYR decided not to do that and believed he would improve once he was in his foster home. Prior to foster mom picking him up, an appointment was made for Davey to see the regular vet. Davey immediately recognized foster mom when she got him from the ER. Two days later he was seeing the vet. More blood work was done and the vet suggested a liquid nutritional supplement for foster mom to syringe into Davey if he did not eat. Foster mom was also syringing water into Davey several times a day. Daveys blood work showed his kidneys were still not doing well so the vet called a canine nutritionist for a consult to determined the best diet for him since he had pancreatitis and poor kidney function. The vet told foster mom to put Davey on a hepatic food and come back in one month. Dave has been eating canned hepatic food, warmed up of course, and is drinking better but foster mom is still syringing water into him to make sure he is getting enough fluids. Davey will return to the vet in a few days for more blood work and a check up. This little guy has really fought to make it and it shows. He is running, and barking and has decided he will be the alpha even with foster moms 50lb dog. He is eating well and drinking water better but still needs to have water syringed. UYR still needs your help. UYR has spent over $6,000 on this little guy. UYR continues to pay for his vet bills, blood work, prescription food and medical necessities. We so appreciate the people who have donated to this little guy so that we could save his life. Without our wonderful donners, Davey would not have continued to enjoy his life. Davey spends a lot of time in foster moms lap, even when she is working. Davey lets foster mom know he is waiting to be picked up by barking at her. He also barks at her when he is hungry or needs to go outside. Please continue to help us help Davey by donating to UYR. Every little bit helps whether it is $10 or more if you can. Thank you for your continued support and keep checking back for more Davey updates!!!!

08/24/21: Davey is now being fed with a tube inserted into his stomach. We have recently had an ultrasound performed and have pulled some specific tests which are quite costly and have sent off for answers, We are addressing the issues pertaining to his pancreas, kidneys, GI tract and small intestine. Davey is being tube fed as he continues to refuse food and is dropping in weight. Please help if possible. UYR has quite a few medically needy babies at the moment so your donations are greatly appreciated to help any and all of our babies. Thank you and bless you all!

08/21/21: Meet sweet, sweet Davey. Davey originally came to United Yorkie Rescue in December 2018 and was adopted by a loving family in January 2019. Davey's foster mom received a tearful phone call on August 20, 2021 from Davey's family saying they were in the Emergency Room with Davey and the vet staff were currently working on him. Davey had some mild kidney issues when he was adopted but the kidney issues worsened over the past 2-1/2 years. Davey's family has gone through enormous hardship with COVID hitting. They suffered job loss and most recently loss of their home resulting in living with other family members. Davey's family said that he was barely breathing and not moving, his blood pressure was almost non-existent and the vet team was unable to draw his blood. They immediately started him on fluids as he was severely dehydrated and his kidneys were failing. While the vet team worked on him, they informed his family that he was critical and they would need to keep him. The cost to get him well was more than his family could afford so they did the most loving thing that a family can do and reached out to UYR and asked to surrender him back to us to save his life. UYR immediately went into action after the surrender and began working with the animal emergency team to save his life. Little Davey has dropped from 7 pounds to 4 pounds and his kidney function has declined over the past two years. Davey is improving a little. He is standing and perking up but will not eat and the diarrhea continues. Kidney values are improving but it's been 4 days not and we have to see if he can process foods. The emergency team will be inserting a feeding tube to get Davey the nourishment he needs and the medical bills are continuing to climb to well over $5000. Today he is thinner and very sick. We need your help to save Davey's life. Please consider donating toward his care and help us get him on the road to recovery. Use the DONATE link below this bio content and thank you as always for your help.


To date we've spent $13582.3 on Davey's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $4690 in donations.

Dixie

Dixie

Meet Dixie, a precious 11 year old, 10 pound Yorkie girl being fostered in Leander, TX. Only TX applicants will be considered.

THANK YOU TO DIXIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Everett Smith, Lauren Radencic, Paula Smith, Paula Smith

11/12/21 UPDATE: Hello UYR friends and family. We are happy to report that Dixie has made a complete recovery from her surgery. She no longer lives in constant pain from the four huge bladder stones she had been living with for way too long. After Dixie started feeling better her foster family got to watch her blossom into one of the happiest, fun-loving, and playful dogs they have ever met. Dixie is truly one of a kind and steals the heart of every person she meets. Dixie loves going for walks, playing with toys, and especially enjoys giving kisses.

Dixie no longer has potty accidents in the house! She has had a few problems with getting sick to her stomach in the mornings and is currently on two medications that have helped her feel better. Dixie is still being closely monitored by her foster parents and vet as they try to get to the bottom of what is causing the issue. Her current medications have helped immensely and her Dr. is now fine tuning the medication for optimal results.

9/25/21 Initial Bio: Hello UYR friends and family. We would like to introduce you to one of UYR's newest foster pups, Dixie. Dixie is an 11 year young, 10 lb girl who is full of love and sweetness. Dixies family reached out to UYR about surrendering Dixie due to them not having enough time to spend with her and an ongoing medical issue that they could not help her with. Dixie had been having ongoing issues with potty accidents which was not normal for her. Her owners also noticed blood in her urine. She was treated for a UTI several times but the problem persisted and her owners just could not keep her any longer. UYR took her into rescue last Saturday and thankfully was able to get her into see our vet on Sunday. X-Rays revealed that Dixie had been suffering from four large bladder stones. Poor Dixie had been in a lot of pain for quite a while as bladder stones are extremely painful. Thankfully our vet was able to get her started on pain medications and a round of antibiotics and got her on the surgery schedule to have those painful stones removed on Monday September 27th. If the doctors have time, they will complete a dental cleaning during the surgery. Once sweet Dixie recovers from her surgery she should be ready for adoption. We are still getting to know Dixie and probably wont get to see her true personality until she is out of pain. Dixie it a total love bug that must be next to her human at all times. She follows her foster mom around the house and sleeps under her desk while she is working. Dixie gets along well with the other two senior dogs in her foster home, however is not a fan of her energetic one year old foster sister. From what they have seen so far, her foster mom and dad think she would do best in a home with other senior dogs or as the only fur child. If you are interested in giving Dixie the loving forever home she deserves or learning more about her you can contact her foster parents at uyryorkielovetx@yahoo.com.


To date we've spent $2862.45 on Dixie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $370 in donations.

BIO 11/27/21: We are so excited to tell you all about this sweet United Yorkie Rescue Duchess! Precious baby Duchess, I say baby because this little girl is possibly just 1 or 2. I received a phone call from an area shelter where she and her significant other had just been surrendered-too many dogs was their reason. Immediately the staff could tell this young baby girl was quite pregnant and called UYR to get to her. I dropped everything knowing this little mama was not in the best of places medically given her condition. Duchess had the opportunity to meet some of the best Texas fosters during her transport to her foster home and all of us fell in love with her. Her face, her sweetness, and this tiny body full of pups would just melt you. Foster mom immediately went into action. She was prepping her home with birthing boxes, formula, droppers, thermometers, heat lamps, heating blankets and padsyou name it, and as it was arriving little miss was having a few vet visits to check on her health, the pups health and her labor progress.

On Friday the 19th, 4 tiny blessings arrived via C-section. Momma Duchess was just too tiny to deliver the bundles and because foster mom was so intune to her signs, she immediately took her into the vet when she felt it was go time! We have 3 very healthy boys just at 5oz now and 1 tiny baby girl at a little over 1oz. Little girl was struggling and had to stay on oxygen. It was determined that we take her home and see if she could pull through. Momma was also not accepting at first-this was scary for her being a first time mom and having to endure the c-section as well, but the foster mom used her gentle coaxing and love and momma allowed them to nurse and it just all clicked! Itty bitty was just too weak to suckle so she was dropper fed but by early am on the next day, she was found under mommas arms sucking awayGod is Good!!!

We had hoped after the 72hr window things would be shining brightly, but sadly after that hurdle we did lose our tiny little girl, Little Dot. She was born with a brown spot of her foot that caused sepsis. There was nothing we could have done to prevent that, but she was so very loved and was very much missed by her foster mom and Momma Duchess. Needless to say, we have some time to go before any of this family will be ready for adoption and prayers will be shining brightly on this precious family. In the meantime, we have incurred a pretty hefty medical amount with momma and these babies medical needs from the start to her delivery and ongoing weeks of aftercare. Ultrasounds, x-rays, c-section alone were quite expensive in itself. The aftercare will be vet visits for this family of four, with immunizations coming for these precious boys down this road. If youre considering giving during this giving time of year, United Yorkie Rescue would greatly appreciate any and all donations. If its not possible, please share! You never know who may be able to give and for this we thank you all and say Bless you! Please enjoy some pictures of this precious family featuring Duchess and her adorable 4!

Picture in order:

Our Cutie, Griff!

Wanna Play??
Texas
Griff

Meet Griff, a precious 5 year old, 6 pound little Yorkie boy being fostered in Pflugerville, TX. Only TX applicants within the radius of Austin will be considered.

THANK YOU TO GRIFF'S RESCUE ANGELS!

D.C. Allen, D.C. Allen, D.C. Allen

Pupdate 11/27/2021: Griff will definitely prefer a calm and quiet home, but he will let you know of any loud noises or if you are under attack by the doorbell, Amazon deliveries, any home renovations that will cause you danger, or the trash collection! :) He is a lot of fun and has a tremendous personality!

Griff is tons of fun solo, but would have fun with a small dog friend that he is comfortable with (he is very dog friendly unless the dog doesn't know canine social cues). Griff is more of a submissive guy, so he will back down if confronted in any way. Griff says he is a Lover, not a fighter!

Griff is not part retriever, but boy does he like playing fetch! The trick is to have two toys, one handy for the exchange once he comes back with the other one. He will play forever if you want, but plan on some big sleepy snuggles later!

Griff absolutely loves being a part of a pack and will pile on the bed with them if we watch movies and at night/sleep time. But Griff is absolutely fine solo too! More time to be spoiled by his hoomans! Also, Griff loves sleeping very near or on top of his hoomans :) I have rarely seen him use a dog bed, but he knows what they are and uses them occasionally.

Pupdate 10/22/21: Griff has been sadly a very scared little angel from the get go! And we truly found out just how afraid of humans this little nugget was...

Back in September, we picked Griff up from the shelter and kept him for 3 days until his foster parents could pick him up and bring him to their home. Fast forward three weeks and he was not loving foster life, he bit some members of the foster family as well as his adoption family who came all the way from FL to pick him up.

It became too much for him so he moved back to our home in Pflugerville, since he was just not able to overcome his fear. We noticed he has an incredible fear of hands and absolutely hates being picked up!

Griff is also pretty skittish around new people and we will be doing at least three meet & greets to see how he will fit in, so we are kind of letting him pick his people.

Taking things slow, slow, slow is Griff's speed. It will take time and trust from Griff before he will be ready for his furever. Stay Tuned!

Initial Bio 9/25/21: Meet little Griff! After being brought in as a stray by an Austin Animal Control officer, UYR found this doll baby all alone and needing our help at the Austin Animal Shelter. This little man is a complete angel! Estimated to be 5 yrs. old and just about 6 lbs, potty-trained, polite, listens well, sleeps all night and will soon have his neuter and good groom!

Leonardo
Texas
Leonardo

Meet Leonardo (Leo), a precious 4.8 lb, 9 year old little Yorkie boy being fostered in Leander, TX. Only Texas applicants will be considered.

THANK YU TO LEONARDO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Lyn Symms

INITIAL BIO 11/16/21: Hello UYR family! Please meet our newest foster, Leonardo. Leo came to UYR as an owner surrender from a backyard breeder. His hair was matted, nails super long, and teeth (the ones that were left) in horrible shape. And oh how he smelled!

Despite Leo's neglectful care, he is surprisingly healthy and was definitely loved. Leo weighs in at a small 4.8 pounds and is estimated to be about 9 years old.

Leo was fed a diet of "human cookies", which he must have enjoyed, because he is a little finicky trying to get him to eat healthy food now. He is one little package that demands a ton of attention! His favorite spot is to be curled up next to a human. He is not terribly choosy about who, but just wants to be held and snuggled. He gets along well with the other pups in the house and just loves everyone he meets.

Leo does not have any house manners and wears a belly band around the house. He doesn't mind going potty outside, but normally just goes wherever it is most convenient. Foster Mom and Dad are working on his manners with the help of the other pups in the house, but he will require some structure and focus once adopted.

Leo has his neuter and dental scheduled for just before Thanksgiving and should be ready for adoption in December after he recovers. Get your applications in quickly, because this little heartthrob is going to find a perfect forever home very quickly.


To date we've spent $813.94 on Leonardo's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $100 in donations.
Please donate!

Tucker
Texas
Tucker aka Eugene

Meet Tucker (aka Eugene), a precious 8 year old, 13 pound Yorkie boy being fostered in Fort Worth, TX.

THANK YOU TO TUCKER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Lynne Turner, Gianna Perry

INITIAL BIO 11/29/21: Hi Everyone~ Meet precious Tucker. Tucker is a sweet little 7 to 8 yr, 13lb boy that was found by animal services in a pretty rough way. His right ear is bulging shut with infection, he has an upper respiratory infection along with a possible nasal fistula which causes him to sound as if his trachea is collapsing. He has a right eye infection as well, thankfully without a corneal ulcer! He seems to have been debarked or had a possible injury to his vocal chords as well.

Tucker is 100% housetrained and is a baby that attaches very fast to his human. He gets along with other dogs and is very much one who will submit to any danger. He loves seeing children and is very gentle with them. He does have separation anxiety, so I think he would do best with another gentle dog in the household. I also think he would benefit with someone who is home at least most of the day. He does well if the foster mom leaves the house as there are other fur-siblings in the house, but does not like it if he cannot find me or if I shut the bathroom door LOL!

If you feel you have the love and perfect home for this sweet baby, please complete an application or email foster mom at yorkiefostertx@gmail.com.

Initial Bio 10/22/21:

My name is KeKoa and I am a very sweet 5lb, 13-14 year old little man who was found wandering the streets of Washington DC. My history is unknown but I visited the dogtor the first night with my foster mom. I have a ruptured eye that is infected, severe dental disease with roots showing that make it hard for me to eat, possible Cushing's Disease, I'm blind, I have a spinal injury that make it hard for me to walk, and I have not been neutered. My foster mom treats me so good and gives me soft food that I can enjoy. I sleep most of the day but I love to nuzzle under her chin. I am not house trained, I love my crate, and I wouldn't do well in a home with children. On a final note, my foster mom named me KeKoa which means "Warrior" in Hawaiian. She is fighting for me. My medical costs will be significant, so I would really appreciate your support!


To date we've spent $1701.55 on KeKoa's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $500 in donations.

Bella

Bella IN

Meet Bella, a precious 12 year old little Yorkie girl who is being fostered in McFarland, WI.

THANK YOU TO BELLA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Drew Henderson

Initial Bio - 11/22/21 Bella arrived to her foster home on 11/20/21 as an owner surrender. Bellas family actually rescued her two years ago from a neighbor that was not taking good care of her and letting her roam the neighborhood. They got her a long overdue groom and vet check and intended to find her a good home. Fast forward two years and they had to make the choice to surrender her to a rescue for help in finding that new home. Bella had her initial vet checkup today and all looks good. She does have some dry skin issues that her foster mom is going to work on but overall she is in terrific health. Bella is quite a laid back gal that would be perfect in a mature home where life is quiet.


To date we've spent $175.99 on Bella IN's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $150 in donations.

9/4/21 Update: Paisleys road to recovery has been up and down as her battle with renal failure continues. Periodic blood panel checks have shown improvement in some areas and decline in others and those numbers bounce back and forth each time. She will continue getting fluids multiple times a week and will stay on a very strict diet to try to get her kidney issues to a manageable level. Since coming to UYR she has gained nearly 4 lbs and has gotten much stronger and shows a lot of spunk.

She has fight in her so we will continue to fight with her but we sure could use some help covering the costs of her fluids and blood panels. Please click on the DONATE button below and help us with her expenses!

06/29/21. Paisley had an adoption pending, but unfortunately, her health took a turn for the worse. Blood work taken 5-26 showed that she was in renal failure so she is on a very strict diet and receiving fluids a few times a week. An updated blood panel was done on 6-14 and she is showing improvement so her diet and fluids will continue.

I will not be accepting adoption applications until her blood panels show that she is out of renal failure and to a point that kidney disease could be managed.

03/31/21 Paisley had her first vet visit yesterday and overall things turned out better than expected. She is slightly anemic but that is mainly from malnutrition and should correct itself as she gains weight. She received her Rabies and Bordetella vaccines and will go back in two weeks for the rest as we did not want to overwhelm her frail body. She still paces at times but that is already starting to subside and I can see her calming down. She loves to sleep on the couch and I believe she is getting long overdue rest now that she is feeling safe. She has a long road to recovery before she will be available for adoption as she needs to slowly gain at least 4 lbs.

INITIAL BIO: 03/30/21. Paisley came into foster on Friday as an owner surrender. It was discovered that her owner had Alzheimers and had to be moved so she was left in the home alone not getting attention or food. She is severely malnourished and has extreme anxiety. Paisley will have her first vet appointment tomorrow to find out if there may be any other health issues. I do believe she is deaf, as she does not react to sound at all. Her first owner did have other dogs so she does not have a problem getting along with her foster brother.

At this time I will not be taking any application as it is going to be a long road getting her poor little body back to full strength.
