Brandy
California
Brandy

Brandy is a beautiful 4-year-old, 7 pound, little Yorkie girl being fostered in Southern California. Brandy must be an only dog and cannot go to a home with children. Only candidates living in California will be considered for adoption.

THANK YOU TO BRANDY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Rodney and Robin Slagle, L Summers

UPDATE BIO. 05/07/19. These past few months have been a rollercoaster ride as we continue to interview prospective “FurParents” for this unique and special little girl, but the perfect family with the right experience and vetting history has yet to be found…..at least not yet!

We have also had a couple medical issues arise with Brandy over the past few months. Following her routine dental, Brandy was diagnosed with a slight collapsing trachea requiring her to be on daily medication. This condition is barely noticeable when she’s in-doors and quiet, but is noticeable when she’s excited and sometimes the first few minutes she’s walking on a lead. This condition requires that her living environment be kept cool, and her activity level kept to a minimum as summer approaches and the days get hotter. And if that wasn’t enough for this little beauty, for the past several weeks, Brandy has been unable to place her right rear foot squarely on the floor while walking or standing. X-Rays showed a moderate degree of arthritis in both rear hips and knees. Brandy has received a series of 5 weekly Adequin shots to help relieve swelling and help her begin to feel better. Her last weekly Adequin shot will be on Saturday. She will then require these shots on a monthly basis moving forward with hopes that her standing and walking will return to normal. If not, she will be re-evaluated to determine next steps.

At home, Brandy has made slow, but steady progress but continues to have difficulty understanding or conforming to the rules of our pack. Brandy’s judgement continues to be lacking in her interactions with other dogs. Mine, Mine, MINE is Brandy’s MO, and she doesn’t let anyone stand in her way!! During playtime, Brandy will attempt to hijack the fetch toy and hold it hostage upstairs in her bed. She’s always collecting her favorites and hiding them so none of the other can play with them. Thankfully, our pack has just learned how to deal with Brandy’s behavior, which is pretty much overlooked now, but it can sometimes cause chaos with the other lose their patience with her selfishness and unpredictability.

Brandy’s relationship with Alex and I has really improved. She is sweet and loving to him now and rarely nips at either of us, even when being groomed, which is a big improvement. She longs for love and just wants to be on a lap watching TV or reading a book. When we talk or sing to her, her tail just goes wiggle-waggle –it just melts my heart! She has grown very fond of Alex and longs to have alone time with him on the weekends, sharing Cheerio’s or Ice Cream early in the morning, or late at night when the other’s aren’t around. At home, she just the sweetest, most loving little lap-dog. She loves to be held, and even has begun to give “hugs,” leaning her head into your chest or arm and snuggling.

On the other hand, some things have not changed despite lots of behavioral research and attempts at modification and reprogramming. We feel that Brandy will always have a fear of strangers and attempt to charge them and nip at them. Likewise, she will always be fiercely protective of her people and nip at anyone that approaches and/or tries to touch her. This behavior subsides when she gets to know people at home, but it is unlikely she will ever be friendly to strangers that come into our home or those she meets outside of the home. Her leash is RED for a reason – We’re always on-guard for people that try to reach for her while shopping or strolling by the lake. She’s so adorable, she’s irresistible to everyone that sees her!

We’re continuing to love, protect and work on solving her medical issues. Her uniqueness and quirks make our relationship with her extra specially rewarding.

Fosters – Diane & Alex

UPDATE BIO. 01/25/19. With each new day, we love this little girl more and more…..and Brandy has learned to return our love. This little ball of confusion has unraveled and it’s definitely been a magical time of learning for us as foster parents. There are few things as special as gaining the love and trust of a Yorkie like Brandy – such a wonderful little dog that is making great strides as she figures out life, love & trust.

Brandy has taught us so much about taking the time to observe with patience, gain a clear understanding of cues and develop new individual behavioral strategies that she can understand. We believe we have developed goals and behavioral objectives that set her up for success, and there’s just nothing like watching Brandy celebrate her achievements! When it comes to Brandy, there are no “cookie-cutter” strategies that can be applied with success. She meets each new situation and/or person on an individual basis. Therefore, she continues to be a bit unpredictable. We have come to understand that Brandy’s lack of early socialization has caused her to have a significant level of social anxiety which causes her to nip when she meets new people or other dogs. We have made it our goal to put her in as many social situations as possible and she has begun accept new people and even make friends over a short period of time. We anticipate that Brandy will always be suspicious of strangers, but now we understand that if a person respects her space and give her time to observe and feel comfortable, she will warm up and event attempt to make friends.

Miss Brandy continues to be an Alpha Female that really isn’t interested in developing relationships with other dogs, although she has learned how to behave and live and abide by the rules of our pack. She isn’t good at sharing toys and is very possessive of them. Brandy continues to be combative with other dogs when she feels threatened and this little girl is fearless. Over the past few months, she has learned to retreat to her “crib” in our bedroom when she feels overstimulated or uncomfortable around the other dogs. She’ll sit and wait until another dog isn’t looking and will steal their toy and hide it away for herself. She loves “one-on-one” time with me, loves playing ball and has become the most loving lap dog. It’s very clear that Brandy’s preference is to be a “One & Only!” She just loves being hugged, petted and having her belly rubbed now – but she’ll sometimes have a “flashback” and growl as a warning that she’s getting ready to snap because something is making her feel uncomfortable. We have learned to accept this behavior and when we hear her growl, we just stop touching her and let her be. Often, she’ll immediately begin kissing your hand as an apologetic gesture. We still can’t figure out what goes through her mind – except that she just gets “spooked”. Brandy is very animated and energetic. Sometimes I think she expends so much energy when she’s awake that she just crashes into a very deep sleep when she goes to rest.

Smart as a whip, Brandy knows all her basic commands and is always eager to please for a treat!! She is extremely animated and attentive. She listens intently and really loves New Age, Classical and Reikki Relaxation music. She has excellent potty skills and goes directly to her little patch of fake dog grass on the deck when she has to go. She loves structure and responds very well to a predictable schedule. She’s at the door with her baby in her mouth precisely at 9AM and again at 4PM ready for her walk. She is a remarkably well behaved dog that can be taken to hotels, restaurants and virtually any public setting as long as strangers aren’t permitted to touch her. Brandy loves riding in the car and recently came on a 12 hour trip to New Mexico during which she was a perfect little traveler.

Each night I take a moment to place Brandy gently in her “crib” and sit with her for a moment. I look lovingly into her eyes and blink to let her know that she is safe and loved. With each passing month, her expression becomes softer and now she’ll even drift off to sleep as I rub her little belly and kiss her goodnight.

Brandy continues to march to the beat of her own drum, and the music she makes is uniquely beautiful!!

Foster Parents – Diane & Alex

6/04/18. UPDATE BIO. Brandy continues to do well and make slow but steady improvements. This month she seems to have turned the corner with my husband Alex. She hasn’t wanted to have anything to do with him, but now she happily jumps on his lap and has even given him a few kisses on his nose. Before she would only kiss his hand. She continues to hoard the toys she likes and has begun guarding them all day long. She makes sure to take one of her “dollies” each time we walk and makes it the entire way with her “dolly” hanging out of her mouth. The neighbors think she’s just darling.

We continue to work with her on nipping, but she gets overly excited easily and will lash out at me when I touch her in a way she doesn’t like. A good example of this is when I attempt to clean her eyes and face each morning. She doesn’t like anyone touching her face and does growl and then try to nip when she doesn’t like the way she’s being touched or handled. In addition, she remains very fearful of meeting new people and will immediately nip if they try to touch her. The only way to get her to interact with an unfamiliar person is to give them treats. She’s very motivated by food and will take a treat from a stranger as long as they don’t try to touch her. For the past few weeks, I’ve been taking her with me to the store or to run errands, so she can experience new people and places, but I have to be careful not to allow anyone to touch her. I hope we’ll make some good progress on this front over the next month or so.

Brandy two favorite activities are going for walks and eating!!

03/20/18. Update Bio. Brandy came to UYR as an owner surrender that suddenly became intolerant and aggressive toward the other dog in her household after four years of peaceful coexistence. In addition, she became overly possessive of her owner and began nipping at others that came into her vicinity. Brandy has been medically evaluated and is in perfect health. In addition, she has been seen and evaluated by a reputable trainer and was placed on Prozac to help control her aggression, but the medication had no positive impact on the situation. Concerned for the safety of both of their dogs, Brandy’s owners found themselves with no other option than to seek the assistance of UYR.

Brandy has been a member of our family for the past six weeks. She has been weened completely off of medication, has been placed on a healthy, raw, grain free diet. Ironically, Brandy was immediately accepted into my little pack of three the day she arrived. We have had no major incidences of aggression between Brandy and any of our 3 Yorkies (with some minor pack corrections that are teaching her manners, none that have involved overly physical contact). In fact, they seem to like her, and regularly attempt to seek her out to play. Although Brandy tolerates the pack, she isn’t eager to engage with them just yet. She prefers the one-on-one attention of humans and has fallen in love with both my husband and myself. She is a sweet little lap dog that likes nothing more than cuddling, wrapped in a blanket and having her neck, ears and belly rubbed. She loves being brushed too and will sit on the floor next to my feet to wait for her turn. So adorable.

As her foster mom, and a person with several years of experience living and working with “Quirky Yorkies.” I think Brandy is a Fantastic little one and very typical of many of the more “Colorful” Yorkies. Brandy is a very loving, intelligent and complex little one that needs to be challenged and loves learning. She is super fun, and very spunky and so incredibly ADORABLE! She has a very high level of intensity in everything she does and absolutely needs lots and lots of exercise, attention and a new Mom & Dad that can respect and appreciate her for who she is. One of the things I love about Brandy is her strong desire to communicate her needs, albeit the way she has gone about it in the past has been understandably misinterpreted. For example, if she’s enjoying getting her ears scratched and you suddenly stop, she will grab your hand with her mouth gently because she wants more. I’ve been working with her to kiss rather than grab my hand and she is catching on quickly. If you rough her up or hold her too tightly she gets upset and will grab your hand as if to say, “Don’t do that to me!” If you grab her leash and walk to the door, she’ll nip your toes because she can’t wait to go outside. She’s learning how to kiss instead. Like most Yorkies – Brandy LOVES going for long mountain walks …. 1-mile twice per day. She also has a habit of growling in a fairly intimidating way if anyone or the dogs go near her when she’s in her bed or has a toy. Of course, this is normal, but in Brandy’s case it was overly intense. She’s doing this less and less as she begins to feel safer and becomes more accustomed to our family and the rules of our pack which include respecting others and their space.

Brandy also has a tendency to get overly excited which is usually the precursor to negative behavior. She is learning how to channel her excess energy into chewing bones, playing fetch, and tug-of-war. She is also learning how to have better manners with other dogs. Each evening I watch as my pack engages her or ignores her depending on how she is acting, and which cues she’s sending out. She is very smart and seems to be enjoying learning the ways and rules of the pack with little intervention from me – she seems to feel accomplished and I’m very proud of her.

Brandy also has rather strong obsessive/compulsive tendencies and (like many Yorkies) wants whatever another dog has. In Brandy’s case, she doesn’t want to play with another dog, she wants to steal the toy and hide it. She’s definitely a major hoarder. In the beginning she would sit and whine for a long, long, long time if she wanted something. Since she has learned that this just isn’t the way to get what she wants, and she rarely does this now. Brandy also knows when she needs quiet time and will sometimes retreat to her bed just to relax. To her credit, Brandy is perfectly housetrained and is terrific at letting us know when she has to go out to her little patch of grass on the deck.

In the beginning Brandy was aloof and didn’t really seem to like or trust people very much. She seemed uncertain of human interaction and wasn’t a big fan of being held or carried around and would growl. We got the sense she really just wanted to be left alone, like she was just plain fed-up humans, which we could totally understand based on the chaos this entire family had endured during their final months together. We believe that Brandy was very confused and disoriented because she just couldn’t figure things out, or what people wanted from her. She just wanted to go to her bed or retreat and “check-out.” The unpredictability of life also resulted in her lack of confidence, fear, and caused her to growl and/or lash out.

Brandy is a UNIQUE Yorkie that has definite streaks of unpredictability which (we believe) may stem from a combination of her possible in-breeding, past life experiences and genuine nature. It has taken time, good judgement, love, limits, and the ability to properly evaluate her state of mind at any given time and lots and lots and lots of positive reinforcement to develop a good, strong, loving relationship with Brandy. I’m confident that it will take her new owner(s) a good deal of BREED SPECIFIC KNOWLEDGE, time, effort, patience, love, kindness and respect and work to develop a loving relationship with Brandy.

Brandy is a Special UYR Yorkie with Unique Needs.

Brandy’s Specific Requirements – Please Read Carefully – In addition to UYR’s high-standards for potential adopters, the following additional conditions are specific to Brandy.

You must have demonstrated experience with the Yorkie Breed, and an understanding, experience and a passion for intensified breed characteristics and knowledge of how to properly correct with positive reinforcement and loving limits.

Brandy will not be adopted into a household with children or regularly visiting grandchildren under 16 years of age. A retired, yet active couple or single person that is home most of the time is highly preferable.

You must commit to having a “one-Yorkie” home FurEver. If you plan to have a mult-pet household at some future date, or if you currently have another pet, please do not apply to adopt Brandy. UYR will reserve the right to retrieve her should this commitment be broken.

Applicants for Brandy must live in Orange or San Diego Counties Only.

We’d like Brandy to be adopted by a Yorkie-Breed Enthusiast. We’d love to find her new FurParents that will take her to obedience, training and agility classes to establish and solidify a strong, life-long bond with Brandy.

I know I am cute.

See - I am adorable and will love you forever
Florida
Apollo

This cutie is Apollo. He is an adorable 9 year old, 7 pound little Yorkie boy. Apollo is being fostered in Jacksonville, FL.

UPDATED BIO 06/22/2019: Apollo has been in his foster home a week now; since his arrival, he has settled in to a calm, quiet lifestyle. He will let foster mom know when he needs to go out and will use puppy pads. He continues to bark at new and unusual sounds, but stops once he gets familiar with the sound.

Apollo likes toys - especially squeaky toys - and prefers to not share. He likes to be near his person and enjoys cuddles and belly rubs. He does good on a leash and enjoys having a fenced yard, but not required. His preferred home should be an adult only home with someone home most of the time. He does not do well with children so a home with no children is required. He prefers to be an only dog for all the attention and he will need time to adjust to cats. He will do best in a quiet, calm environment, but not a fan of thunderstorms.

UPDATED BIO 06/18/2019: Apollo has been in his foster home a few days now. He is learning about his Foster Mom, as well as his new fur-brother and fur-kitty sister. He was previously exhibiting barking and howling at loud noises which was disturbing to his former family; he felt like he needed to be on-guard all the time. He was also forgetting a lot of his house-training manners. Foster Mom needs time to determine exactly how much he remembers and how much of a refresher course he may need.

Since Apollo’s arrival in his foster home, he has settled into a calm, quiet lifestyle – just what he needed. He is even recalling some of his house-training manners and is improving. He continues to bark at new and unusual sounds initially, but stops once he gets familiar with the sounds. He likes soft squeaky toys and prefers to not share lol. He likes to be near his person and enjoys cuddles and belly rubs. He will soon see the vet to make sure he is healthy and will be groomed as well. Foster Mom needs time to evaluate his ability on a leash. A fenced yard may be preferred but not required.

Apollo’s preferred home would be an adult-only home with someone home most of the time. NO CHILDREN of any age please. Apollo will do best in a quiet, calm environment. Come back soon to find out more about adorable Apollo.

INITIAL BIO 06/15/2019: Little Apollo arrived at his foster home today. He is just learning about his foster mom, fur brother, and fur kitty sister. Apollo will need a nice grooming and will see the vet soon.

Apollo was having some trouble in his former home. It seems he likes to bark and howl at noises he didn't recognize, and was disturbing the new baby in the house. The new baby is also making Apollo upset and he is forgetting a lot of his house-training manners. Since the new baby's arrival, Apollo has been regressing in his behavior and seems to be on guard all the time. His owners sadly decided that for Apollo's sake and for his well-being, he needed a calm, quiet, adult only home.

Apollo's foster mom has a lot to learn about Apollo, but we do know that he needs an adult only home. He would love someone home most of the time, and he needs a quiet, calm environment. Apollo's foster mom is looking forward to getting to know Apollo. Come back soon to find out what she learns about adorable Apollo.


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

I am such a good-looking fella

I am a very sweet boy.
Florida
Benji

Meet Benji. He is 7-1/2 years old and a bigger fellow at 25 pounds. Benji is a handsome most likely Schnauzer/Doxie mix with a touch of Yorkie. How cute is that? He is being fostered in Leesburg, FL.

THANK YOU TO BENJI'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Pamela Matheny

UPDATED BIO 06/18/2019: Benji is the sweetest guy. Because Benji is bigger than most Yorkies at almost 25 pounds and has a long body, we think he may be a Schnauzer/Dachshund mix, with a touch of Yorkie, or possibly a Cairn Terrier/ Dachshund/ and maybe some Yorkie mix. Whatever he is - he is so cute.

Benji had a good vet visit today. His heart and lungs are good and strong. His blood work showed normal kidney and liver values. His blood levels have come up but he is still slightly anemic, therefore he will continue with the Pet-Tinic vitamins with iron twice a day. Benji was lethargic when he was first picked up by Animal Control and for a while in his foster home. However, with vitamins and good food and care he has perked up and is now full of energy.

Benji does have dry eye though it is not severe. He will need to have one drop of cyclosporine twice a day in each eye for the rest of his life. Dry Eye Syndrome is very uncomfortable and can lead to severe eye problems if not treated. The cyclosporine makes his eyes feel so much better, and because it was caught early, it is a minor case. As long as the cyclosporine is used each day it should never get worse. This is not an expensive medication. It may cost about $15 a month. Other than that, Benji shouldn’t need to be on any other medication.

Next week Benji will get the second drontal pill to ensure the worms he got from the horrible flea infestation from his life on the streets are gone. The fleas were the reason for the tapeworms. Besides the fleas, the days on the street scrounging for food are the reasons for the anemia, but he is getting so much better now.

On July 9th Benji will go back to the vet for what we hope is his final fecal test to make sure the tapeworms are gone. He will also have another blood test to check his blood levels. After that we hope Benji will be ready to go to his forever home.

Benji is such a good dog and just loves everyone. He gets so excited to meet people wherever he goes. He has to say “Hello” to everyone. He was almost perfect at the groomer, though he got a little scared when the groomer’s assistant went to pick him up and he wasn’t ready for it. He didn’t like that and let her know it. Benji loves kids, but he doesn’t like to be grabbed, so he would do best in a home with well-behaved kids who are over the age of 9.

Benji, more than anything, loves attention and love from his people. He will even bark for attention. Benji is smart and learns quickly. When we say No Barking, he does stop. He may be mostly house-trained, but it is possible he will have accidents until he gets accustomed to the smells and routine of his new home. He does best when he is walked on a leash. We have found that a walk morning and evening are his favorite. He will do his business on that walk, and he is great on the leash. He likes to be outside in the fenced yard, but will often just wander around a little and then wait to go back in. It is the long walks that he truly loves. He has to have a home with someone who will take him on nice walks at least twice a day. Benji wants to sleep on the bed with his people. He does well in the car, and he is a good eater. This is just one all-around great fellow.

Benji is such a sweet, loving good boy who definitely loves people and wants to please them. He is fine with other dogs, but his preference for sure is his people. He will try to get between his people and another dog if he thinks he should be getting the attention. He isn’t mean or aggressive about it, but if there is another dog in the home, it needs to be a more submissive dog who likes to share his or her people and toys. Benji would probably prefer to be an only dog since he does love all the attention. Benji will show his displeasure if his space is invaded, but he has never curled his lip or bitten.

Benji likes to play with squeaky toys, but we found he played too hard with them. Benji is now only allowed toys without stuffing that are sturdy and can stand up to his loving exuberance with his toy. He will need toys that are not filled with stuffing or plastic squeakers. He will tear them apart and pull everything out. That is not safe, so only toys with no stuffing or squeakers for Mr. Benji.

.

Benji must have been crated for hours and hours at a former home. His teeth are all ground down and the vet suggested it was from chewing on a crate to either get out or because he was so bored and sad. Benji would not like being crated in his forever home. He wants to be with his people and even sleep with them. If you try to put him in a crate or even a puppy play-pen he will try to do what he can to not let you put him in. He is fine behind a puppy gate if no one is home, but he is not fine if you are home and he can’t get to you. Benji’s perfect home would be one where his people would be home a lot and spend a lot of time with him, let him sleep on their bed, and not try to crate this loving, sweet boy.

We are taking applications for Benji in the hopes that his perfect home is out there waiting just for him. Don’t let Benji’s size scare you away. He is so sweet and there is just more of him to love and to give you love. He gives such good kisses, and although he is a little big to be a lap dog, he thinks he is one, and if you let him, he will jump up onto your lap. He just loves to be close to his people. Whoever is lucky enough to adopt this great boy will be getting the best doggie ever. Everyone who meets him says what a cutie he is - and he is. He has the sweetest, cutest face. When he looks at you with those big eyes your heart melts. Benji is waiting for your application hoping you are the one to give him his forever home.

UPDATED BIO 06/06/2019: Benji is the sweetest guy. Because Benji is bigger than most Yorkies at almost 25 pounds and with a long body, it is thought that he may be a Schnauzer/Yorkie/Dachshund mix or possibly a Cairn Terrier/Yorkie/and maybe Dachshund mix. Whatever mix-a-doodle he is - he is very, very cute.

Benji had a good first vet visit. His heart and lungs are good and strong. His blood work showed normal kidney and liver values, but he is anemic. His blood count is a bit on the low side, so he is getting Pet-Tinic twice a day; this is a daily vitamin supplement that contains iron, copper and 5 other essential vitamins that he needs. Poor Benji also has a little case of tapeworms. When Animal Control picked him up off the streets, he was full of fleas and lethargic from being in the heat for days and days. The fleas are the reason for the tapeworms, and the days on the street scrounging for food as well as the fleas are the reasons for the anemia. He will be done with his treatment the last week of June when he goes back for a recheck of his blood levels and to make sure all the pesky worms are dead and gone. After that checks out and all is good with his health, Benji will be ready for his perfect forever home.

Benji is such a good dog and just loves everyone. He was so excited to meet all the people at the vet clinic. He had to say Hi to everyone. He was almost perfect at the groomer, though he got a little scared when the groomer’s assistant went to pick him up and he wasn’t ready for it. He didn’t like that and let her know it. Benji loves kids, but he doesn’t like to be grabbed, so he would do best in a home with well-behaved kids who are over the age of 9 years old.

Benji more than anything loves attention and love from his people. He will even bark for attention, but his foster parents are working on that undesirable behavior. When they tell him “No Barking”, he does stop. He is smart and learns quickly. He may be mostly house-trained, but it is possible he will have accidents in the house until he gets accustomed to the smells and routine of the household. Benji loves to be outside in the fenced yard. He walks great on a leash and does well in the car. He is just a sweet, loving, good boy who definitely loves people and wants to please them. He is fine with other dogs, but his preference is, for sure, people. He will try to get between his people and another dog if he thinks he should be getting the attention. He isn’t mean, but if there is another dog in the home it needs to be a more submissive dog who likes to share his or her people and toys. Benji does like squeaky toys.

He is fine behind a gate if no one is home, but not if you are home and he can’t get to his people. Benji’s perfect home would be one where his people would be home a lot with him and not try to crate this loving, sweet boy.

We are taking applications for Benji in hopes that his perfect home is out there waiting just for him. Don’t let Benji’s size scare you away. He is so sweet and there is just more of him to love and to give you love. He gives such good kisses, and although he is a little big to be a lap dog, he loves to be close to his people, and if they let him, he likes to be on their lap. Whoever is lucky enough to adopt this great boy will be getting the best doggie ever. Benji is waiting for your application hoping you are the one to give him his forever home.

INITIAL BIO 06/01/2019: Poor Benji spent the last 2 weeks in the county shelter. He was picked up wandering the streets full of fleas and exhausted from the heat. As soon as he reached the shelter, they immediately began working to cool him and get him stabilized. He was lethargic and his breathing was shallow. Benji would need a lot of attention. So Benji spent his 2 weeks of recovery in the office area of the shelter where he got a lot of attention, good food and medical care. There he was vaccinated, neutered and thankfully he tested negative for heart worms. The shelter staff said he has a very calm demeanor and is a very sweet and loving dog.

After two weeks a notification was put out to area rescue groups - Benji was ready to go to a rescue for continued care. United Yorkie Rescue decided to take a chance. Yes, Benji is bigger than our usual Yorkies, but one look at his sweet face and knowing he needed to be in a home and not in the shelter any longer, we knew we had to rescue this fellow. He needs meds for his eyes and ears, and probably a dental. He will need blood work done as well as a well doggie check. The shelter was not sure of his age, but said he may be a senior dog. He will see the vet very soon and we will get a better idea of his age/weight and his general health.

Benji has been in his foster home for only a few hours, but his foster parents can already tell he is a good boy. He likes people, he is calm and after a little while of barking he has become a quiet, sweet dog. The other dogs are a little leery of him because he is bigger, but Benji really wants to be friends with them. Although the shelter said he was older, he doesn't look like or act like an older dog. He is energetic and seems to wants to play, but is not yet sure of everything.

He was only recently neutered so he is marking, but with a bellyband on for now, the floors in the house are staying nice and dry. He likes to be outside and knows to do his business outside. Benji will also need a good grooming, but not for another week until after his neuter has healed.

We are not yet sure what kind of forever home Benji will need, but he seems to be okay with all people and other dogs. He may also like kids. There is so much more to know about Benji. We will be back soon after his vet visit with lots more information. His foster parents think Benji is one great dog, but there is more to come, so please come back soon to find out all about the sweet little guy.


To date we've spent $230.18 on Benji's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $262.00 in donations.

Cheechie

Cheechie is an adorable Yorkie mix. He is 10 years old and weighs a chubby 16 lbs. Cheechie is being fostered in Ft. Myers, FL.

THANK YOU TO CHEECHI'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Irene and Peter Havas, Taylor Spino, Angie Cagle, Irene and Peter Havas in memory of darling Happy

UPDATED BIO 06/22/2019: Cheechie here – I wanted to give all my fans an update to let you know that I am doing okay and still waiting for my forever home. I am a very mellow boy with a sweet personality, just as quiet as can be and that’s how I like to live. No parties or wild stuff like these little hoodlum yorkies that I live with. Geesh, I can’t even watch a movie in peace around here.

I do have a heart mumur that requires me to take 4 different medications 2x a day, but they keep me going and I don’t have any complaints. I like medication time cuz I get tasty meatballs that foster mom hide the meds in. She's not fooling me at all – I’m a smart cookie who’s been around the block, but the meatballs are so worth taking. I just pretend that I don’t know so she will be happy and keep giving me meatballs. I am great on the leash, house-trained and will also use a pee-pee pad if the weather is bad.

If you are quiet and mellow, then we should hook up cuz I’m quiet and mellow too!

You won't be sorry if you adopt me, and we will both get to watch a movie in peace - together. BONUS! Ummmm, don’t ask me to be a guard dog cuz I’m more of a lover boy and don’t have a high-prey personality. So your squirrels, lizards, birds and possibly cats are safe with me.

Thanks for considering me. Oh, and I am really cute, too. So ….. in closing, my perfect home would be one with a laid-back atmosphere and attitude and someone to love me forever for the rest of my life. Oh, and I like to watch movies, don’t forget that one.

NOTE FROM FOSTER MOM: Please don’t turn away from this sweet and precious boy due to his age or the fact that he needs daily medication. He is an amazing companion dog who only wants his very own family to love. He will reward you with being your best couch buddy – and lot of love in return.

UPDATED BIO 05/14/2019: Cheechie is a wonderful laid-back and mellow boy. He is a bigger yorkie mix boy who has a sweet personality, is leash-trained and will use a pee-pee pad. Don’t ask him to be a guard dog – Cheechie just wants to be a lover. He has a calm and loving personality, so squirrels, lizards, birds and possibly cats are safe with Cheechie for sure.

Cheechie does have a Grade IV heart murmur and is under medical care. He will need to stay on heart meds for the rest of his life. His diet is being adjusted to help him lose some weight and become more active.

Cheechie came into rescue with his brother Chongie. They were placed in a crate and abandoned in a church parking lot with a bag of food. He loves his brother very much and it would be awesome if they could be adopted together, but it would also be okay if they went to different forever homes as well. They both kinda do their own thing - Cheechie loves laying on the couch and watching TV and Chongie is very playful.

Cheechie’s perfect home would be a calm and quiet atmosphere with people to love him and let him live out his remaining years in comfort. If Chongie could come along, it would be perfect!

NOTE FROM FOSTER MOM: Please don’t turn away from this sweet and precious boy due to his age or the fact that he needs daily medication. He is an amazing companion dog who only wants his very own family to love. He will reward you with being your best couch buddy – and lot of love in return.

UPDATED BIO 04/13/2019: Hi everybody, it's Cheech here, lovingly called Cheechie at my foster home. I am a good boy but kinda on the lazy side – for now. Foster Mom said that I really need to be walked on a regular basis so that I can – ummmm – lose a bit of weight. Right now, my favorite thing to do is hang around the house and watch TV. What’s wrong with that? I would love to have a snack while I’m watching TV, but Foster Mom says “no no Cheechie. We are on a diet.” So I get a green bean for a snack. Wow!

I came into UYR with my buddy Chong. You may remember that our previous owner dropped us both off in a church parking lot and we were in a crate together. That wasn’t very nice, was it? But we won the lottery since a very nice person found us and got in touch with UYR – and we love our Foster Mom & Dad.

I love Chong very much and it would be awesome to be adopted into the same home with him, but I would also be okay if we went to different forever homes as well. We both kinda do our own thing - he only cares about playing – a lot - and I am more of a couch potato right now.

So .... if you have a quiet home and don't expect me to do any heavy lifting or wash windows, then I may be your perfect pal. I’ll be your constant buddy if you like to watch TV, as long as I get to go on several walks every day so that I can “slim down”. What does that even mean anyway?

NOTE FROM FOSTER MOM: Please don’t turn away from Cheech due to his age. He has many more years to be a loyal and loving companion to his adopter. Older dogs, like older people, need love too and Cheech has a lot of that to give.

UPDATED BIO 02/23/2019: Cheech is doing very well in his foster home. He is a very laid back kinda fella and agreeable with all people and pups. Cheech can be a little lazy, but that could be attributed to his Grade IV heart murmur . However, he does show some pep in his step when meal time is approaching. Cheech is doing well with his house-training and enjoys a stroll around the back yard. Foster Mom has found that he needs encouragement to get up and about because he does need to lose a pound or two. So, no dessert for Cheechie, just sweet kisses and hugs.

Cheech loves his friend Chong and they do well together. They may do their own thing during the day but when night settles in, they stay with each other - comfy in the security of friendship. So Foster Mom would love to see them remain together.

UPDATED BIO 02/15/2019: Cheech and his brother Chong are acclimating nicely to their foster home after being abandoned in a crate dumped in a church parking lot, along with a bag of food. Cheech has seen the vet and began the process of updating his vaccinations. Thankfully both dogs are heartworm & fecal negative. Cheech does need a dental badly, but will a radiograph of his heart should be done prior to anesthesia since he has a Heart Murmur. He has been started on antibiotics for the skin infection from scratching due to an infestation of fleas and should feel better really soon.

Because Cheech is a chubby 16 lbs, Foster Mom has him on a weight-reduction diet so that he can be a healthier and happier weight. He does limp a bit in the rear, but it is hoped that there is nothing significant going on like a torn or rupture of his CCL (Cranial Cruciate Ligament) – similar to the ACL in humans. He is on a course of Metacam for two weeks to see if this gives him some relief. Stay tuned for more information on both Cheech and Chong as his foster parents get to know them better.

PLEASE NOTE: Cheech and Chong are bonded and must be adopted together.

Initial Bio 1-15-19 Cheech and his brother Chong were abandoned in a church parking lot. They were in a crate with a bag of food sitting next to the crate. We know very little about them except they are very attached to each other. Cheech is overweight and will need to lose quite a bit of weight.

Cheech will be seeing the vet very soon. At that time he will receive all his vaccinations, a heartworm and fecal text, as well as blood work. More than likely he will also need a dental and possibly other vet care. As soon as Cheech has his vet appointment we will know more, so watch for more information on this guy coming soon.

Cheech and Chong are bonded and must be adopted together.


To date we've spent $2146.10 on Cheechie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $461.28 in donations.

UPDATED BIO 06/17/2019: Hi everybody – Chongie here. I’m checking in with all my people that may want to adopt me. You already know that I am a great boy. I am quiet, and the only time I may grumble is if you don't throw me the ball. I do require a kong ball and a plush toy. A boy has to have choices because sometimes you feel like a squeak and sometimes you don't.

I would like a yard to frolic in but if you don’t have a fenced yard, then a few long walks everyday would be fun, too. My potty habits have improved and I still do have an accident here and there, but I am getting better and better. I enjoy being with my family whether we are playing or just watching TV.

Well, that's all for now, folks. You can email my foster mom with any questions and I promise she is going to tell you the same things I did. Oh, and I’m sure she will say lots more sweet things about me.

UPDATED BIO 05/21/2019: Hi everybody – Chongie here. Just wanted you to remind you that I am still waiting for my furever home. I am simply shocked that someone hasn't noticed all of my charm yet. Foster Mom says I am a really good kid. She loves me and says "Chongie, you’re such a good boy and I am sure your new home is just around the corner." I sure do hope she is right – I am so ready to begin my new life in my forever home. I’ve been here since February – it’s great here but I’m looking for my forever and ever parents.

I love my brother Cheechie very much and it would be awesome to be adopted into the same home with him, but I would also be okay if we went to different forever homes as well. We both kinda do our own thing - he only cares about laying on the couch and watching TV and I love playing.

I have made good progress with my house-training. I will go on pee-pee pads and also will go outside; I only have an accident here and, but it’s not too often. You may remember that I had bladder stone surgery – not very much fun. I will need to be kept on a special diet so I won’t get any more bladder stones and it is really yummy. Foster Mom said that it costs the same as a high-quality dog food, and you know I am worth it!

You may be wondering what I need in my forever …… here’s a short list:

- I need a loving and fun mom and/or dad who will take me on walks and play with me.

- A fenced yard would be pawsome, but if you walk me a few times a day then I will be ok with that.

- I will need (2) new Kong balls a month. Yes, I really am hard on them but I just love them.

- And since you will be shopping for the new Kongs, feel free to pick up a new squeak toy as well. No sense going for just a couple of balls.

- I like to sleep with you, too. Sometimes I will opt for an ottoman that is close by. But just assume we will be together, lol!

Well that's really all I have to say for now – you know what to do - email Foster Mom with any questions that you may have about me. Look forward to meeting you soon.

UPDATED BIO 04/13/2019: Hi, it’s Chong here, lovingly called Chongo in my foster home. It's Mr. Chongo in some circles. I am a pretty laid-back fellow. I do love to have a ball or toy to chew on and am playful as well. I like being around my people – a lot. I hang out with the other pups here too. I need to lose some weight so it would be a good idea for me to go on walks 2-3x a day to help me do that.

I came into UYR with my buddy Cheech. You may remember that our previous owner dropped us both off in a church parking lot and we were in a crate together. That wasn’t very nice, was it? But we won the lottery since a very nice person found us and got in touch with UYR – and we love our Foster Mom & Dad.

I love Cheech very much and it would be awesome to be adopted into the same home with him, but I would also be okay if we went to different forever homes as well. We both kinda do our own thing - he only cares about laying on the couch and watching TV and I love playing.

I did have surgery to remove some bladder stones after coming to my foster home, but I am doing great now and feel so much better. I am on a special diet now and need to be on this diet for the rest of my life so that the stones don’t come back. At first, I tried the food that was called pate’ – I think that’s a fancy French word. I didn't like it at all. Foster Mom then tried the beef stew and it was a big winner with me.

If you looking for a doggie companion that is game to try new things, then I would be your guy. I am very easy-to-please and even easier to love. Oh, and I sleep in the bed. The big bed that is. Don't worry, I will leave room for you, too.

UPDATED BIO 02/23/2019: Hi everybody, it's me - Chong! Well, I had my surgery to remove the stones in my bladder and I am doing very good. They say some people have rocks in their head – well, I had rocks in my bladder! And these rocks must have been like diamonds because they sure did cost a lot to take them out. This bill rocked my world.

I want to thank everyone so much for caring about me and all the well wishes that you sent. If you can please help me get this bill behind me, I would be so grateful – and relieved. Thanks again; and if you would like to donate towards my vetting expenses, you can click the donate button below and both me and UYR would so appreciative. And your donation will allow UYR to continue to take in dogs like me with medical issues.

UPDATED BIO 02/16/2019: URGENT UPDATE! Chong saw the doctor recently for a bladder infection and medication was prescribed. However, even though he was getting along well and enjoying playing and frolicking about, he still had blood in his urine. He saw the vet today and they did some testing and discovered that he had bladder stones and needed emergency surgery. Chong is perplexed since he never ate stones and couldn't understand how they could get in his bladder! He is in emergency surgery right now. Hopefully all will go well and he will soon be home to his brother Cheech who is missing him.

Chong's surgery is expected to cost approximately $1,000. We are urgently asking our rescue angels to please consider making a donation towards his vetting expenses so that UYR can continue to help little homeless dogs like Chong. Every donation helps.

UPDATED BIO 01/19/2019: Chong and his brother Cheech are acclimating nicely to their foster home after being abandoned in a crate dumped in a church parking lot, along with a bag of food. Chong has seen the vet and began the process of updating his vaccinations. Thankfully both dogs are heartworm & fecal negative. Chong does need a dental badly and this will be scheduled soon.

Because Chong is a chubby 18 lbs, Foster Mom has him on a weight-reduction diet so that he can be a healthier and happier weight. Stay tuned for more information on both Chong and Cheech as his foster parents get to know them better.

PLEASE NOTE: Chong and Cheech are bonded and must be adopted together.

Please help me get better.

Harmony

Say hello to Harmony. This sweet girl has been through a lot. She is about 10 years old and weighs 9.2 pounds. Harmony is being fostered in Orlando, FL.

THANK YOU TO HARMONY'S RESCUE ANGELS!<.B>

Irene and Peter Havas in memory of darling Happy

Initial Bio 6/20/19 Little Harmony was found on the streets in horrible condition. Just look at her sad picture. She has severe hair loss on her back and sides. It is likely she has a very bad bacterial and yeast infection on her skin and in her ears. She smelled awful. The shelter did what they could for her. They gave her antibiotics for her skin and her ears, and they worked very hard to get her to a foster home as soon as possible. When she arrived at her foster home her foster mom gave her a nice warm medicated shampoo bath. After her bath she smelled better, but her skin is still itchy. She has on a baby onesie to cover the bare skin and scabs and to keep her from scratching.

Harmony has a cataract in one eye, but she does see. She walked all around her foster home exploring everything. She even cruised the backyard. She gobbled down her meals and loved the treats she was offered including some steamed broccoli. She was happy in her little doggie bed. Harmony was fine with the other dogs in the home, although she didn't have anything to do with them she blended in just fine.

Harmony will be seeing her vet very soon. At that time she will have blood work done, her skin and ears checked, and given a full physical exam. She will be prescribed the medication she needs to get healthy so she can go to her forever home. Please help us help sweet Harmony and donate to her care. She is not sure she can trust people yet, so let's show her there is still wonderful people in the world who care and who love her.


To date we've spent $232.83 on Harmony's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $20.00 in donations.

I am such a pretty and sweet girlie

I am looking for a loving forever home
Florida
Kendra

Sweet Kendra is 6-1/2 years old and weighs a healthy 9 lbs. She is being fostered in Palm Coast, FL.

THANK YOU TO KENDRA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Michelle Pannoni, Debra Bass, Nestor Sanchez

UPDATED BIO 06/16/2019: Hi all - Kendra here with a little update on how I’m doing. I’m now being fostered in Palm Coast, Florida. Foster Mom says I am progressing so fast it's time to let you all know what’s going on with me. Well, I think I may be just 8.6 pounds now ‘cause of this new diet I’m on, but Foster Mom says I'm perfect in every way.

I just love Foster Mom and Dad and especially love sitting on their laps to watch TV. I am just amazed at all the wonderful people and doggies I have gotten to meet already, and I haven't met one that I didn't like, so this is a good thing, right? I've been coming out of my shell and now just love being part of an active family – and I still enjoy a little nap time thrown in lol! When Foster Mom says it's time to eat or go potty, I'm right there with the rest of the resident doggie gang. I'm still working on the potty outside and think I’ve almost got it, but if I have an accident it's really no big deal and it only happens once in a while.

I am also learning to use the doggie steps to come up with Foster Mom and my doggie siblings, but need to master how to come down. Oh well, that will only take a few more days ‘cause I'm not only adorable, but a very smart little girl. I love playing with the other doggies here so another small dog for me would be wonderful, and I really would like to have a fenced-in yard to keep me safe.

If you like what you've read about me so far, just fill out an adoption application and put my name KENDRA on there. Until then, I'll be livin’ large and hangin’ out in Palm Coast, Florida.

UPDATED BIO 06/03/2019: Kendra continues to adjust to life in her foster home, where her foster mom is continuing to help her learn that she doesn’t need to be afraid of new people in her life and that all the people whom she will meet in the future will touch her with loving and kind hands. She likes to lie next to foster mom and enjoys her company more and more. Kendra is learning about toys and playing and her little tail has begun to wag during playtime, which surely does enhance her life since she never had that opportunity before in the puppy mill.

Although Kendra spent most of her life in a puppy mill, she has learned that life can be adventurous, happy and carefree and she is ready to let go of her former life and adapt to a new one, full of love and new fun experiences. Kendra is so smart, sweet and curious – she is now going outside to potty and will also use a pee-pee-pad if the weather is not so inviting. She sleeps nicely in her crate at night and loves mealtime.

Here’s what Kendra needs in her furever home:

- A fenced-in yard would be wonderful since she is more comfortable being leash-free and running to her heart’s content.

- A home where there is at least one stay-at-home adult who can continue to help her adjust to being a beloved companion dog. She would be okay with children over the age of 12 years old.

- Another calm and low-key doggie companion close to her size and age since she really likes the company of another dog.

UPDATED BIO 04/23/2019: Kendra here. I wanted to let people know that I am getting to learn what it is to be a beloved doggie companion! In the beginning I was so afraid ‘cause I didn't know what to expect. Foster Mom has helped me learn that people want to love me and they do not want me to be afraid. I'm starting to have eye contact with people and its OK for me to spend time on a chair or in bed with them.

Here’s some bonus news - I am going outside to do my business. I sleep in a crate at night and am excited to go outside to potty when Foster Mom gets up. I eat my dry kibble in the kitchen with the big dog, but I am still afraid another dog will take my food since that’s what happened in my previous life.

I’m trying to learn to trust people and learn other doggie things. There are times I act playful with my tail wagging and a smile, but hesitate ‘cause I’m not sure what to do. I am searching for a furever home with people who will help me continue to adjust to living outside of a puppy mill. I would prefer stay at home adults who can help me continue to adjust

Here’s what I need in my furever home:

- A fenced-in yard since I’m not doing too well with that leash thing

- A home where there is at least stay-at-home adult who can continue to help me adjust to life outside the puppy mill.

I know I will learn to love you but will just need time to learn about being a doggie. So if you have a lot of patience and love to give to me, I will be loyal and loving right back.

UPDATED BIO 03/27/2019: Kendra had her spay today and did not need a dental – wow. Foster Mom reports that she is improving more each day. If she is let out on a regular schedule, she will do her business outside. She acts like she wants to play as she comes running towards her Foster Mom with a smile …. then stops about an arms’ length away. She is finally using a dog bed and just started taking a treat from Foster Mom’s hand at arms’ length. At the vet visit today, they reported that she did good with the staff, which was a big relief since she has met only a few strangers since leaving the puppy mill and Foster Mom is anxious to see how she does with houseguests in a few days. She is making excellent progress.

UPDATED BIO 03/24/2019: Kendra is slowly learning what life is outside of the horrible puppy mill where she spent her entire life. Since this property was operating as a puppy mill, inhumanely breeding dogs to sell for profit, many of these dogs were highly sought-after small breeds, and there were a hundred or so yorkshire terriers, maltese and yorkie/maltese mixes, in addition to many other small breed dogs.

Kendra is one of the more timid and frightened dogs that came into UYR. She is slowly making progress as far as being socialized, but is still fearful of being touched or held. She remains scared of humans and will run away if approached. Her foster mom previously had her in a 2 x 2 exercise pen to acclimate her to the household, but is now letting her roam around the house at will so that she will become more comfortable with her surroundings. She has a blanket she received when she arrived and now uses it for security. Foster mom places the blanket in a dog bed and Kendra now lies in the dog bed with the blanket - sweet.

Just this past week Kendra has slowly started to improve. The exercise pen was removed and after a few days she started to explore the house. She still cowers into a submissive position any time people are near her, even her foster mom. She acts like she wants to come towards her, but is still unsure. If foster mom lies on the floor with her arm extended, Kendra will slowly approach to sniff her fingers. She had her first bath which was traumatic for both Kendra and her foster mom, but she gradually accepted it. She has also just started to eat some steamed chicken, which is also being used as treats and rewards when placed near her. It will still be a while before this sweet girlie is ready for adoption, but she is making progress. Baby steps!

Kendra is still very submissive and has little clue what she is supposed to do when outside, but if foster mom stays a distance away from her, she will do her business; otherwise, she will lie down in a submissive posture. It will take time, but Kendra will soon feel safe and be more open to house-training. At this time, Kendra needs more time to adjust to life outside the puppy mill. Kendra’s foster mom does not think she would do well in a busy household with children, so an adult-only home is preferred for this little princess.

The UYR members that pulled Kendra were shocked and saddened at the inhumane conditions in which these dogs were living. The property had more than 700 dogs being housed in a warehouse in too-small crates – with more than one dog per crate, and stacked one on top of the other. A majority of the dogs pulled were suffering from malnourishment, sores and abrasions, severe dental disease, matted hair, infections, severe eye injuries, congenital diseases and general severe neglect. The smell alone of the poor dogs was enough to cause a person to be nauseous and these dogs lived 24/7 365 days a year in this environment.

Please watch for postings on all 20 dogs from the puppy mill that came into UYR. This was a huge endeavor that took a lot of supportive members who all volunteered their time and without our amazing fostering members, we would not have been able to save so many. UYR is very proud and humbled to have participated in bringing happiness and new lives and love to 20 little doggies. The vetting expenses on these little dogs will be huge, so if you have been moved by Kendra’s story and the stories of the other 19 dogs who are journeying toward wellness and love, please consider making a donation to help UYR continue to participate in rescues of this magnitude.

Kendra appears to be a bright and happy little girl who just wants to be safe and be loved. She is a very pretty little girl and is a brave survivor of the life she’s led, and this speaks of the amazing resilience and desire to trust she has. Once she has learned that most humans have loving hands and a kind touch, she will be an amazing little companion to the right family. Kendra is heartworm negative and we are so grateful to learn this news. She has received her vaccinations and will soon be spayed. Please stay tuned for update on this sweet girlie.

Kendra slept in a soft bed her first night in her foster home, with food and water available to her. She is learning how to drink water out of a bowl, and is now eating her meals out of a bowl as well, which wasn’t always the case in the puppy mill.

She is learning how to drink water out of a bowl, and is now eating her meals out of a bowl as well, which wasn’t always the case in the puppy mill. Kendra appears to be a bright and happy little girl who just wants to be safe and be loved. She is a very pretty little girl and is a brave survivor of the life she’s led, but this speaks of the amazing resilience and desire to trust she has.

The UYR members that pulled Kendra were shocked and saddened at the inhumane conditions in which these dogs were living. The property had more than 700 dogs being housed in a warehouse in too-small crates – with more than one dog per crate, and stacked one on top of the other. A majority of the dogs pulled were suffering from malnourishment, sores and abrasions, severe dental disease, matted hair, infections, severe eye injuries, congenital diseases and general severe neglect. The smell alone of the poor dogs was enough to cause a person to be nauseous and these dogs lived 24/7 365 days a year in this environment.

Another UYR Team pulled 9 more dogs from this puppy mill today. Please watch for postings on all 20 dogs that came into UYR. This was a huge endeavor that took a lot of supportive members who all volunteered their time and without our amazing fostering members, we would not have been able to save so many. UYR is very proud and humbled to have participated in bringing happiness and new lives and love to 20 little doggies. The vetting expenses on these little dogs will be huge, so if you have been moved by Kendra’s story and the stories of the other 19 dogs who are journeying toward wellness and love, please consider making a donation to help UYR continue to participate in rescues of this magnitude.


To date we've spent $460.83 on Kendra's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $200.00 in donations.

I like my foster home.
Florida
Khloe

Meet darling Khloe. She is a sweet Yorkie mix little girl. Khloe is 8 years old and 9 pounds. She is being fostered in Oldsmar, FL.

INITIAL BIO 06/19/2019: Khloe is slowly adjusting to her new foster home. She seems to be a little shy, but is allowing her foster mom and dad to pet her. Khloe was sadly surrendered by her owners when they realized that, because of their long work hours, she was in her kennel and alone for long periods of time. Khloe was sad and they were, too. They knew she needed a home where she wouldn't be alone for hours and hours every day. Today Khloe became a United Yorkie Rescue foster dog. Her former owners said Khloe takes a little time to warm up to people, especially men. She likes kids, but would do better with older children over the age of 11. She loves walks, sunbathing, going on car rides and playing with toys.

These qualities and more are many of the things that Khloe's foster mom and dad will be finding out about her in the days and weeks to come. Come back soon and get to know Khloe along with us.


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

I am a sweet puppy. I am getting my summer haircut soon.
Florida
Monroe

This Yorkie puppy is Monroe. He is not even 2 years old. Monroe is only I year 8 months old and 10.5 pounds. Monroe is being fostered in Spring Hill, FL.

INITIAL BIO 065/21/2019: Monroe is an adorable young little fellow. He won't even be two years old until October when he will have his 2nd birthday. He is such a sweet dog. Monroe's mommy had to sadly surrender this puppy when her life circumstances changed and the hours at her job became long. Monroe ended up having to be crated and alone for more hours than a young dog should have to be.

His former mommy told us that Monroe is a very sweet, good boy. He loves kids (well-behaved older children), other dogs, and everyone he meets. He plays with toys and likes to play fetch with his people. Monroe loves his walks - even walks in the rain when he can splash in the puddles, he is great in the car and enjoys his car rides. Monroe likes to sleep in his crate with a few of his toys. His crate is called his little home.

Being so young, Monroe is very playful and enjoys playing with toys and other dogs. When he is done playing he likes to be cuddled and petted and told what a good boy he is. Monroe's former mommy even said he is house-trained. It will be so much fun for Monroe's foster mommy to learn all these things about Monroe, even the commands and tricks he might know.

Once Monroe really settles into his foster home and his foster mom gets to know him and his personality, she will know if this fellow is the almost perfect boy he seems to be. Monroe’s perfect forever home would be a home with someone home a lot of the time since he doesn't like being alone. He would be fine with well-behaved kids over the age of 10 to play with, and another young dog who would not boss this gentle, sweet dog around. He is young and active and needs an active family. Remember, being not even 2 years old, Monroe needs a family who can give him at least a commitment of being with him for 15 years or more.

Check back soon because Monroe will be getting his summer haircut, and new pictures are coming of a less shaggy boy.


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

I know I am cute

Here I am just chilling
Florida
Rocco

Rocco is a tiny 8 year old 6 pound cutie. He is being fostered in Orlando, FL.

THANK YOU TO ROCCO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Mary Katherine Hill, Ann Fillmen, Behnaz Memarzadeh

UPDATED BIO 06/20/2019: Hi, it's me - Rocco. I’m back – again - because I am really sad now. Why you ask? I have been in my foster home for 3 months and I’m beginning to feel like I'll never have the perfect furever home.

You see, my first owner was a man and he didn't treat me very well. This lasted for over four years and I'm only eight years old. Yikes, that's half of my life! Since leaving that horrible place, I've been in two other homes. As nice as those people were to me, I still had trouble trying to adjust to the men in those homes. I would get scared and growl at the man in the home, who was very kind to me, but I couldn’t trust them because of my past experience. This made them afraid to be around me, which made me even more sad.

I have been with my sweet foster mom since the beginning of April. She understands doggies like me and has been helping me with my trust issues. She says I'm making progress and is very proud of me. My foster mom says there are a few conditions I will need in my new home for me to continue making progress. Here they are:

- I need to be in a home that has only one mom, no one else

- There can be NO men, children, dogs or cats living in the home

- There cannot be a swimming pool

Due to my unique requirements, my foster mom would like to have a meet and greet with my prospective adoptive mom to ensure that we are the perfect fit. My ideal home will have a mom who is retired or works from home. I cannot be left alone for long periods of time. My preferred adopter is a woman who has some experience with doggies like me. I want to be the best I can be and a mom who understands me would really help. Patience and love is key in allowing me to trust and be a loving companion to my furever mom.

I am cute as a bug. I am neutered, current on all my vaccinations, microchipped and have had a dental cleaning. I am on Brevecto for flea/tick prevention and HeartGuard for heartworm prevention. I also take a few medications to help me with joint pain from my luxating left knee - they are Galliprant and Flex 2500 - the monthly cost of these two medications is approximately $25 - and I am so worth it. Don't worry, I can still run and jump without any trouble.

I am house-trained, but I wear a belly band in the house because I sometimes lift my leg to mark. I've never pooped in the house though, so that is a good thing. I always let my foster mom know when I need to go outside. I love to run in the backyard, so a fenced yard would be nice, but not required as long as I can go for several long walks each day. I love to go for walks.

If you feel you would be the kind of mom I need, please click on the application link below. I hope you're the mom I'm looking for. I’m still waiting and trying to remember that she is out there somewhere – just dreaming of having a wonderful and loyal companion like me.

UPDATED BIO 05/08/2019: Hi, it's me - Rocco. I am getting sad – why? Because I am starting to feel like I'll never have the perfect forever home. You see, I wasn't treated well in my first home and as nice as the people have been to me since leaving that horrible place, I've been having trouble trying to adjust to the kindness I've been shown. I still get scared at times and will growl at the kind people. This makes them afraid to be around me, which makes me even more sad. My sweet foster mom is working with me on making my trust issues.

I so desperately want a loving forever home. If you want to know more about me and my needs for my forever home, please read my earlier bios. Here are a few conditions that will help me to adjust easier to my forever home.

- I need to be in a home that has only one mom, no one else.

- There can be no men, children, dogs or cats living in the home.

- There cannot be a swimming pool either.

- - Due to Rocco's unique requirements, his adoptive mom will need to live within an hour's drive of Orlando, FL. Rocco’s foster mom would like to have several Meet-and-Greets with his adoptive mom to ensure that his new home will be the perfect fit for him.

My ideal home will have a mom who is retired or works from home. I do not like to be left alone for long periods of time. My preferred adopter is a woman who has some experience with dogs like me that have had some trauma in their lives, or who is a behavioral specialist or an experienced dog owner/trainer. I want to be the best I can be and a mom with previous experience with doggies like me would really help.

I am as cute as a bug. I am current on all my vaccinations, microchipped and have had a dental cleaning. I take a few medications to help me with joint and osteoarthritis pain from my luxating left knee – they are Galliprant and Dasuquin – the monthly cost is approximately $25 – and I am so worth it! Don't worry, I can still run and jump. I am house-trained. I wear a belly band in the house because I sometimes lift my leg to mark. I've never pooped in the house though so that is a good thing. I always let my foster mom know when I have to go outside.

I love to run in the backyard, so a fenced yard would be nice, but not required as long as I can go for several long walks each day. I love to go for walks. If you feel you would be the kind of mom I need, please click on the adoption application link below. I hope you're the one I'm looking for. Rocco out for now.

UPDATED BIO 04/04/2019: Hi there – Rocco here. Will you be my new mom? I have been fully vetted, neutered, current on all my vaccinations and am also microchipped. I recently had my teeth cleaned and I didn't need to have any teeth pulled. Yay for me!

I’m really healthy, but I do have a luxating left patella and my right hip bone has an odd shape to it, but that doesn't affect my ability to walk or run. Hey, I'm a Yorkie, it's gonna happen. I take a pill every day to help with any pain I occasionally have. and also take a supplement to help my joints. My foster mom slips the pills in my food. She thinks I don't know she does this, but it helps me to walk and run in the backyard, so I don't mind.

I love to spend time with my Foster Mom. She puts me on her lap and I curl up and go to sleep. I love to have my head and ears scratched, but not my back so much. I love car rides and walks in the neighborhood. I also like running and exploring the fenced backyard at Foster Mom's home.

I do, however, have some special requirements for my new home. Here’s what they are:

- I MUST be in a home with only my new mommy. I don't want to share my mom with anyone else. There CANNOT be any men, children, cats or other dogs in my new home.

- I cannot be left alone for long periods of time - this will make me very sad, so I need a mom who is retired or works from home. This is very important to me.

- My new home CANNOT have a swimming pool. I know there are a lot of restrictions, but trust me, I'm so worth it.

- Did I say I didn’t want to share my home with other cats & dogs? Just making sure.

If you read my previous bio, you know the reason why there can be no men or a swimming pool at my new home. You see, when I was with my first owner, he didn't get me groomed very often and my hair got all tangled and the tangles hurt when they pulled on my skin. Then, when I needed a bath, the man would throw me in the swimming pool and this scared me so much! This went on for over 4 years! So, now you know why I don't like men or swimming pools. Because of this, I still don't like getting a bath. You'll have to be very careful with me when it's bath time. I will probably be very upset and growl at you.

You may be thinking I'm a mean little boy, but I'm really not. As long as you are aware of the bad experience I had, we'll be best buds. I just want a new mom who will love me unconditionally and I will love you right back. You will see how very sweet and loving and loyal I will be to you – forever.

I'd love to meet you, but first you'll need to submit an application for me and if you've previously had a vet, my Foster Mom will need to get a reference from their office. Because I think we should meet first, it would be best if you live no more than an hour away from Orlando where I am living with my Foster Mom. I look forward to meeting you. XOXOXOXO, Rocco

Initial Bio 3/15/19 Rocco has had a rocky road from his very early days until he became a United Yorkie Rescue dog. He was bought from a breeder as a puppy. He lived with his first family for four and a half years. This family decided they no longer wanted Rocco because he was a bother. So they were ready to turn him into the SPCA. As luck would have it that very same day a couple came into the SPCA looking for a little dog and saw this man holding this little Yorkie. He was matted and dirty and needed major attention.

This nice couple took this little dog. Rocco was a scared and angry little guy for quite a while. Rocco was so scared that at the vet clinic he was aggressive to the vet. In order to examine him and get him up to date on his vaccinations they had to sedate him. While sedated they also shaved him down to the skin to get rid of the mats. His new mom and dad worked with him, but soon discovered he was not fond of men very much and really only liked women. This was most likely due to being abused by the man in his first family. These nice people worked hard with Rocco and he made great progress. They had Rocco for 3 years and during those years they had two children, they both worked, and their once quiet home became noisy and loud and full of activity.

Last year Rocco's family decided Rocco needed a much quieter, more sedate home life. Rocco’s dad’s mother having gotten to know Rocco from baby sitting the two young kids offered to take Rocco in. Rocco was now in his third home. Although Rocco has made so much progress under the love and care of both his last families he was still was unhappy because there was a man in the house and men still were his least favorite people. With much regret and knowing how far Rocco has come it was decided he really needed a home where it would only be Rocco and his mom, no men, no kids, and maybe one other small dog, but even no other dog would be better. A fenced yard would be great, but he does fine on a leash.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION! ROCCO WILL ONLY BE CONSIDERED FOR ADOPTION TO A FEMALE ONLY HOME – he bonds tightly to only one person and doesn’t like to “share” their affections with anyone else. He cannot go to a home that includes another woman or man, children and cats. Rocco can be placed in a home with another small (no bigger than 10-12 lbs) dog who is mellow and non-aggressive. There will be no exceptions made.

Rocco has only been in his foster home about two weeks and his foster mom will need a little time to figure him out. Please check for updates on this adorable little boy.

My name is Ruthie. Do you like my jammies?

Ruthie is a sweet senior girl
Florida
Ruthie

This adorable Yorkie girl is Ruthie. She is estimated to be 12 years old and 7 pounds of cuteness. She is being fostered in Summerfield, FL.

THANK YOU TO RUTHIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandra Wendt, Susie Dugger, Mary Jo Branson, Carolyn Armes, Diana Wilson, Karry Rogers, Heather Beale, Anonymous Facebook Donor, Carol Gostomski, Patricia Riddle, Irene and Peter Havas in memory of darling Happy, Lana Kravitz

Initial bio 6/16/ 19 Ruthie was found wandering as a stray and sadly ended up in a shelter where no senior dog should ever have to land. Ruthie is absolutely precious. She has a beautiful face and a perfectly proportioned Yorkie body. We can’t know her story....but she is chill, sweet, relaxed and bears none of the behavioral markers of a dog who was not loved and cared for. How she ended up as a stray is a complete mystery and we wish she could tell us. Ruthie has been to the Vet and some minor health issues common to most senior dogs were discovered. Ruthie has a grade 3 (out of possible 6) heart murmur and was placed on Enalapril which she needs to take daily for the rest of her life. This is a very inexpensive drug and when placed in her food she just swallows it down with the rest. She also has chronic dry eye and gets Cyclosporine eye drops twice a day and will also need these continued for the rest of her life at a cost of about $20 a bottle which lasts a month. UYR runs a full set of comprehensive lab tests on our senior Yorkies and Ruthie’s results were good except for a couple of things. She has an elevated white blood cell count that is most likely caused by dental decay. She is on antibiotics and she will have her dental cleaning and any needed extractions done next week. Ruthie had one other lab test that was slightly elevated called an SDMA test. It was only elevated one point above the normal range which may or may not mean much. In the interest of full disclosure, this test CAN indicate the beginning stages of kidney disease but her BUN and Creatinine were both completely in normal range. The Vet indicated that Ruthie could be just fine for the rest of her life but it is something to be aware of. Because of her age, Ruthie’s foster Mom and Veterinarian agreed it would be wise to go ahead and put her on a probiotic and prescription dog food for dogs with kidney issues since a little extra caution will help protect her kidneys as much as possible. Like most senior dogs, Ruthie has some sensory deficits so she does show evidence of both decreased vision and hearing. She can hear a loud clap but often does not hear her name called or respond to the sound of a human voice unless you are right next to her ear. She can see well enough to follow you around in daylight but has less night vision.

Ruthie is a very sweet senior. Her foster Mom says she gives the sweetest, most gentle little kisses. Ruthie is fine with all living beings human and fur. Ruthie likes meal time and her soft food. She will be up and follow her person around periodically but most of Ruthie’s hours are spent napping in her soft bed. She loves petting and will sit or lay beside you and let you dole out belly rubs while she dreams of chasing butterflies. As far as house training goes, it’s hard to know if Ruthie is or isn’t. Foster Mom carries her outside every 3-4 hours, sets her down on the grass and she goes. But if foster Mom forgets or sleeps too late then Ruthie will also go wherever she happens to be.

This little love bug is looking for a forever home with someone who would love to have a sweet senior companion and who would be happy just “being” with her. Ruthie is not energetic at all so we’d love to have her go to a home without young children who might provide more stimulation than Ruthie wants or needs as a senior. Honestly, Ruthie is probably not going to be much of a “playmate” to another pet either. But she would be happily become their snuggling companion. She would also be a great, sweet, companion to a person who likes hanging out at home, sitting on the sofa and having a soft little lap warmer sit with you. Ruthie is impossible not to love and she is virtually no trouble to care for other than giving her medications and prescription food. She should probably have her blood work repeated annually or twice a year just to make sure her kidneys are doing fine. If you think you might be Ruthie’s perfect home then apply to adopt her or email her foster mom at jan@unitedyorkierescue.org.


To date we've spent $255.64 on Ruthie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $670.00 in donations.

Georgia
Lily Mae

Lily Mae is an 8-year-old, 11-pound Yorkie girl being fostered in Hiawasee, GA.

THANK YOU TO LILY MAE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

April Bradshaw, Holly Keller, Irene and Peter Havas

Bio Update 5/23/19

Attention UYR Fans! If you are a female who loves Yorkies, has a heart to help dogs who need some extra love, has no children and no other pets then PLEASE READ THIS! Lily Mae needs to find a loving forever home where she can be someone’s entire world. Before coming to UYR Lily pretty much “owned” her older human. As an only pet who was completely spoiled, she was allowed to do just about anything she wanted (or not), eat human food and rule her roost. As a consequence Lily became obese, developed skin issues and grew accustomed to being in charge. When Lily’s owner became unable to care for her Lily was surrendered her to UYR. There were some BIG CHANGES in store. Suddenly Lily found herself in a foster home where there were multiple other dogs to compete for her human’s time and attention. We hoped she would adjust and accept in time but Lily is still struggling with taking her place in a “pack” so we are trying very hard to find her perfect adopter where she can be an only dog. Lily’s perfect home would preferably be with a female adopter who spends lots of time at home, has no children or other pets in the home, likes to go for walks and is okay with giving Lily daily medication. Lily has a few minor, easily treated medical issues. Like lots of Yorkies, Lily takes Apoquel for skin allergies and a thyroid supplement. Lily also has inadequate tear production so she gets Optimune eye ointment daily. She takes her pills easily with her food and does not mind having her eye ointment. Lily also needs an owner who will continue to help Lily on her weight loss journey. Through a healthy diet, exercise and scheduled mealtimes Lily has lost almost a whole pound in her foster home. She LOVES going for walks so that is both a healthy habit and a reward for her. She needs to lose another pound or two to get to her ideal weight of 9-10 pounds.

Lily has recently started on some medication to help her with anxiety until we can find Lily’s perfect home. We had hoped that she’d adjust to the other pets in her foster home but after two months that doesn’t seem to be happening so Lily’s foster Mom and her Vet agree a little medication might help her in the meantime so we will see how she does on it. When Lily becomes stressed or pushed, her “go to” behavior has been to curl her lip and retreat to her crate. However, Lily has some really good days too and is beginning to give love and lap time when she doesn’t have to compete for it with other dogs. Unfortunately for Lily, ALL of our volunteer foster parents have other pets in their homes (because rescuers LOVE ANIMALS of course) but Lily doesn’t understand or accept this so she needs to be an only fur-child

Lily is an cute, chubby, funny AND sweet little dog (once she gets comfortable with you) and she will be a great companion to the right person. If you think that person is YOU, then apply to adopt Lily or email her foster Mom for additional information at equusjojo@aol.com

Bio Update 4/13/19

IF you look up the word “diva”, it SHOULD show Lily Mae’s picture! MOVE OVER Beyoncé, Barbara, Celine, and Mariah!!!! Lily Mae IS IN THE HOUSE! Before coming to UYR Lily pretty much “owned” her older human. As an only pet who was completely worshipped by her person, she was allowed to do just about anything she wanted (or not), eat human food and rule her roost. As a consequence Lily became obese, developed skin issues and also some behavioral challenges. Lily didn’t know this up front but when she came to her UYR foster home there were to be some BIG CHANGES in store. Suddenly Lily was placed into an environment where there were multiple other dogs to “put up with” and a human pack leader in charge! “The very nerve!” thought Lily. She did not like or appreciate the newly imposed structure and competition for attention. Lily spent lots of time protesting by pouting in her crate and ignoring all the other dogs. She further protested by playing the “aloof Diva” with her foster parents. If pushed, Lily would occasionally cop an attitude, turn snarly and show her teeth. But this wasn’t foster Mom’s first rodeo and she did not give in to Lily’s bossy demeanor. As a consequence, after several weeks in her foster home Lily Mae is FINALLY acknowledging that foster Mom is the WINNER in the battle of wills and is beginning to give love and lap time.

We have gotten Lily’s skin issues under control with a healthy diet and medicated shampoos. She has also lost .6 of a pound and is on her way to a healthy weight of 9-10 pounds. Lily was found to have low thyroid levels and she now takes medication for that which will also help her shed pounds. She LOVES going for walks and foster Mom is making sure she gets plenty of them as this will help Lily attain her healthy weight. Lily also has decreased tear production so she is receiving daily eye drops. She will likely need to be on thyroid medication and eye drops for life. Lily just had her teeth cleaned and now that her minor issues are addressed she is ready to start the search for her forever home.

Lily’s perfect forever person needs to have ALL of the following:

-Experience with “diva dogs” and can be a strong pack leader

-Have lots of patience and enough self discipline to not “cave” when Lily acts out or wants human food

-Be active enough to see that Lily gets frequent walks or exercise

-Have no children in the home

-Have no other pets OR no more than one other pet who is relaxed and not an alpha dog

-Is committed to Lily’s care for the long haul including her diet, and administering thyroid medicine and eye drops.

Lily is an adorably cute, chubby, funny AND sweet little dog (once she gets comfortable with you) and she will be a great companion to the right person. If you think that person is YOU, then apply to adopt Lily or email her foster Mom for additional information at equusjojo@aol.com

Initial Bio 3/9/19: Meet adorable Lily Mae. She comes to us from a loving owner who became physically unable to care for her. Her owner was very sad to have to give Lily up but she wanted the best for Lily and reached out to UYR to make sure that Lily would go to a great home that would give her the care and attention she needs. Lily has just landed in her foster home so we will be getting to know her over the next few days. Her owner stated that Lily is a very sweet and loving dog who has a tendency to get nervous around young children and younger, high energy dogs. Lily Mae is a bit on the chubby side and has some minor skin irritations but these things are very easily resolved. Lilly will have a well doggie check within the next few days to see if she has any unmet health needs, have her microchip inserted and start the search for her perfect person who will love her the rest of her days. Lilly must go to a home with no young children since tiny humans make her anxious. A fenced yard would be a plus. Stay tuned for updates as we get to know her better.


To date we've spent $1412.15 on Lily Mae's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $180.00 in donations.

Betty
Illinois
Betty

Betty is a 6 year old, 14 pound sweet Yorkie Mix being fostered in Caseyville, Illinois.

6/16/19 - Betty has now been to the vet and has also lost a whole pound! She is running around and feeling better just having that one extra pound off, but she does still have more to lose. She is up to date on her shots now, and also heart worm negative. The vet confirmed she is probably somewhere between 6 and 8 years old. She is a happy, healthy, pudgy girl. She met some kids and, while she did okay with them, would probably not be adopted to a home with small children due to her propensity to be mouthy when wanting attention and playing roughly. Teenage children would definitely be okay with Betty. She has also met other dogs, and Betty, like people, is particular about who she likes. Her dental is scheduled for the end of June and after her dental and follow up appointment, she will be ready for her new home. If you can’t resist this little face, fill out an application right away!

Initial Bio 5-31-19: Betty is a large, beautiful, lady who was surrendered by her owners. They were not her original owners, so her exact age is unknown but without having seen the vet yet, we are guessing around 8 years old. She is very sweet and so far loves every person she has met. She has not yet been introduced to any children since being in her foster home, but we will try that out this weekend and update her behavior with children.

Betty is adorable, but overweight at 12.5 pounds and needs to lose about 4 pounds. She has started a diet, along with short walks to help her slim down her figure. She also needs to be vaccinated and have a dental. She will have her first vet appointment Friday, June 7th, at which time her dental will be scheduled.

It is apparent that Betty has separation anxiety. Therefore, her ideal home would be someone who is home all day and has lots of time to spend doting on her. She also has extreme storm anxiety and may require medication in the event of severe storms. She gets along fine with her foster dog brother who is 5 lbs, although I have not yet had her around large dogs...yet another event for this coming weekend!

Betty is a great listener...she knows how to sit and come. She walks amazing on a leash and harness and stays right by your side.

If Betty is the perfect fit for you, please fill out an application. She looks forward to finding her new forever home!


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

Meet Shiloh. Shiloh is a 9-year-old, 6-pound Yorkie being fostered in Beach Park, IL.

UPDATE BIO. 05/30/19. This little princess is Shiloh who lives in Beach Park, IL with her foster mommy, daddy, three fur sisters and a fur brother. She is an adorable little 9-year-old, spayed female yorkiepoo who is doing well with her food aggression issues, however she is being fed separately from her fur sisters and fur brother as she wants to run around and check out each bowl because someone might have something better than she has in her bowl. If something falls to the floor, she is the first one there and it is considered hers. She has been in fights with her fur sisters over foster mommy accidentally dropping something on the floor and they all go for it. If something falls to the floor, a stern “NO” will often stop her and allow me to pick it up, otherwise if I simply reach down to pick it up, she will bite. Due to this habit that we are trying to break, I feel that she should not be in a home with any small children who do not understand her aggression that anything that hits the floor is hers. This is a work in progress but we have made strides and she will listen. She is very smart and learns quickly. I feel we’ve earned her trust and we always praise good behavior.

Shiloh is very comfortable in our house with her surroundings, loves to be outdoors and wants to be with her people. We have a fenced yard so she is free to run about without a leash although we have to keep a constant watchful eye on all the fur babies due to coyotes and predatory birds in the area. Because she loves to be outdoors, she really needs a fenced yard with supervision and no means of escape as the saying goes, give her an inch and she will take a mile.

If she is displeased, Shiloh will let you know by barking and it is the same if she wants your attention. She has quite a loud little bark so I don’t know if apartment or condo living would be a good idea as neighbors could complain. Shiloh does not bark excessively but she does let you know if she is displeased, wants something or is demanding attention.

She was formerly only potty pad trained but she will do her business outdoors now as well as use the potty pad indoors.

Shiloh has “floating ribs” that you can feel when you pick her up but this does not seem to cause her any discomfort or pain. The vet said she should be able to live a normal life. Shiloh had hip surgery when she was a baby and she does have some luxating patella issues in her little back legs. I am giving her glucosamine daily which seems to help. She hesitates a second or two at the bottom of the stairs before going up but then she runs right up without any problem. She goes up the stairs to our bed at night and sprawls out wherever she feels the best spot is on the bed.

Shiloh had a dental and is currently up to date on her vaccinations. For reasons listed above I feel that she should live in a home with adults only, no other pets, and preferably not in a condo or apartment as she loves her own yard and a doggie park might not be the best option. I also think she would do best in a home where someone is home with her all or most of the day. She loves walks but still pulls on the leash and wants to lead. Shiloh is a great little girl, stubborn, spoiled, and pampered, but oh so loveable and waiting for her perfect furever home. Please contact her foster mommy at yorkiefostermom04@gmail.com for more information if you think you might have room in your heart for this little doll and be able to provide a loving and caring environment.

Update 4/7/19: Shiloh is an adorable 9 year old, spayed female Yorkiepoo, about 6 pounds, residing in Beach Park, IL with her foster family. She is up to date on vaccinations but does need a dental which I have not scheduled at this time. Although she a very loving and social little lady, we are working on “resource guarding” issues. She is very aggressive with her food and will bite if she feels someone is trying to take her food away. I have been working with her to overcome this food aggression and feel I’ve made some progress but the person(s) who wish to be considered to adopt Shiloh must be willing to continue the training with diligence and patience.

Because of the incidents with food aggression and biting, I feel an adult only home with no other pets would be the best environment for Shiloh as she does show jealousy if she thinks she is being neglected when I give the other dogs attention.

Shiloh loves to be outdoors but pulls hard on the leash, so we are also working on the leash training. She requires a completely secured fenced yard with no means of escape as she will bolt and run away. She is microchipped but she does not know the dangers of traffic, wild animals and such.

Shiloh was completely potty pad trained but is now learning to go outdoors. She is using the potty pad about 1/2 the time and going outdoors the other half.

I will have updates posted on our progress with Shiloh. She is a very sweet and lovable little girl, however we do have some work to do before she is available for adoption. Any questions may be directed to me, Shiloh’s foster mom at yorkiefostermom04@gmail.com. Thank you for considering a rescue ��

Initial Bio 3/16/19: Shiloh is a little female Yorkie, 9 years old and about 6 lbs. She is residing with her foster mom, dad and fur siblings in Beach Park, IL. Because she just came to us, we are still evaluating and will post more about this little affectionate girl in the near future. Any questions may be directed via email to yorkiefostermom04@gmail.com

Toby

Toby is a sweet 8 year old, 5 pound little yorkie-poodle mix boy being fostered in Minooka, IL.

UPDATE 6/11/2019: Now that Toby has been in his foster home for a little over 3 weeks now, his sweet little personality is starting to emerge. He has been to the vet and after completing some blood work and an examination, has been given a clean bill of health. Since he has not had the most vigorous appetite and is quite tiny (5.4 lbs), the vet thought it would be a good idea to get a dental done to rule out any problems with his teeth. We had the dental done last Friday, and they did remove 3 teeth. He was a little sore for the first couple of days, but we finally started seeing some progress with his eating this morning! He does not like to eat when the other dogs are nearby, so we have been feeding him in the mud room off the kitchen with a gate up so he can eat in peace. That seems to have done the trick. The vet would like to see him gain a little weight.

Toby has such a sweet, loving personality and is 100% housebroken! Despite only being with us for 3 weeks, he already knows how to let us know when he needs to go out. He will look at you, give a soft little bark, and then run over to the door. He goes out in the yard, does his business and is ready to come back in. Toby also is perfectly happy in his crate. I keep the crate in my bedroom next to the bed. He will follow me all over the house, and when I go in my room to get dressed he runs right in his crate and lays down and watches me until I am ready to leave the room. We crate all of our dogs when there is no one home, and Toby walks right into the crate and does not bark or cry at all. The one thing he has not tolerated well at all, is thunderstorms. He is absolutely terrified and wants to be as close to his human as possible.

Toby will make someone a wonderful companion. His ideal would be one where someone is home most of the time, with no small children. He does alright with other dogs, but I think would prefer to be an only dog. If you are interested in adopting Toby, please fill out an adoption application.

Initial Bio 5/18/2019: Toby arrived at his foster home this morning. He is a yorkie poo that weighs just around 5 lbs., and definitely looks more like a poodle than a yorkie. He will be going in for a wellness check-up in the next week or so to make sure there are no undetected health issues and to get his microchip inserted.

Through no fault of his own, Toby's very loving owner had to give him up because she was no longer able to physically care for him. She was sad to give him up, but wanted him to go to someone who would love him and take good care of him, so she contacted UYR for help. Toby is neutered and up-to-date on all his vaccinations.

Toby is very well behaved in the car and in his crate. Despite the trauma of leaving his home and owner, he is very affectionate and follows his foster mom around the house wherever she goes and loves to sit on her lap or on the arm of the chair right next to her. He was an only dog in his previous home, and is less than thrilled with his foster brothers and sisters at the moment - climbing up on the back of the couch or chair to cautiously observe them from afar. His appetite is not too good right now, but hopefully that will improve once he feels more comfortable with his new surroundings. He is still settling in to his foster home and being evaluated. More information about Toby will be posted in the near future as we get to know him a little better.


To date we've spent $795.05 on Toby's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $20.00 in donations.

Kentucky
Mandy

Mandy is a 13 year old Yorkie girl, weighing 4.4 pounds and being fostered in Kentucky

Initial Bio 5/26/19: I am 13 years old and am about 4.4 pounds. My foster mommy and daddy call me Mandy, and I love the sound of that name. I was rescued two years ago by this couple. They found me underneath their car with a serious cataract in my eye. I have lost vision in my left eye, and I have a cataract in my right. My vision in that eye is limited. My rescue couple believe I may have been a puppy mill momma as I have some difficulty walking from being kept in a cage. My foster mommy and daddy will be taking me to the dog-tor to find out if I have any other health issues. I like to walk around the house and ignore my fur siblings. I like to give them my squeaky bark and watch them run. If you would like to donate to my care please click on the PayPal button underneath. Stayed tuned for further information on my health:

Casper

Casper is a sweet 7 year old, 6 pound boy being fostered in North Dartmouth, MA.

THANK YOU TO CASPER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Wendy Henry, Wendy Henry, Wendy Henry, Teresa Beament

UPDATE BIO. 5/29/19 - Casper here, I can now take applications for my fur ever home. My skin infection is gone and if I may say so “l look amazing “, I had my teeth cleaned and they did pull a couple of teeth.

I do need an adult only family since my previous owner thought it was a good idea to teach me tolerance and acceptance by picking on me as if he was a small child. I could only take so much and tried to nip him. He sent me back to the shelter 4 lbs. less than when they adopted me with a raging skin and mouth infection with no follow up care. UYR has fixed me all up.

Foster mom had me groomed and the Groomer said I was well behaved. I do like to be a Velcro dog, I am always by FM side, even when she’s vacuuming. I love to eat and get treats for being a good boy. I love to go for walks and meeting new people and fur friends, I get along with FM’s pack, I would even do well in an apartment or with someone that’s retired. If you are looking for a companion that is loyal, I’m your man.

UPDATE BIO. 3/14/19 Hi, it's me Casper. Since arriving in MA., I've been to the Vet man because my skin is in terrible condition, FM says it makes her hurt to look at it Truthfully it doesn't feel good, but I still roll over for belly rubs every chance I get! I have medicine that goes in my food, a special shampoo that has to be done 2x a week and this is the worst part, when FM has to spray this STUFF on my skin. I give her a hard time, she feels bad because she thinks it stings. I can't have my Dental till this gets under control, maybe in a few weeks.

The good news is I've gained over a pound. FM says I'm very cute and need more practice with house manners, and work on my potty training. I would do best in an adult only home, little children make me nervous since being exposed to a disrespectful child and adult. I'm going to look beautiful in a few weeks, I'll keep you posted.

On 2/28/19 I took a long road trip from NYC to Massachusetts. I met a lady and man that I now call foster mom and foster dad. Foster mom was so upset to see me, she kept saying "how can someone allow this to happen"? You see I was at this Shelter in Brooklyn NY. In December 2018 a family adopted me, and I was with them for about 2 months and they returned me. I was 10 lbs then and now I'm 6 lbs. I have a skin condition that I didn't have back in December. The Shelter had to shave me and foster mom promised that it will get better and I will look beautiful. When I was adopted from the shelter a family member was aggravating me and trying to bother me, in an attempt to train me and teach me to put up with being poked and so I snapped at him. Then there was a 6 year old child that was pulling on my collar and pinched me so I snapped at him. Didn't they know I was so scared and unsure of them and my surroundings, I didn't want to do it and I didn't do anything that needed medical attention. I thought they wanted me and loved me but then I had to go back to the big scary, loud shelter. Foster mom says I'm a good boy and just need some down time to adjust. I'll be going to the Vet man soon to see what I have on my skin. I'll bark at you later with an update. P.S. I'm a bit of a velcro dog.

Macy is an adorable 2 year, 7 pound Yorkie Mix girl being fostered in North Dartmouth, MA.

THANK YOU TO MACY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Erin Lewis

Initial Bio: On 6/16/19 I went for a car ride with my first family and they put me in the arms of this new family. My previous family was young and busy, and they felt it wasn’t fair to me to be left alone so much and wanted help finding me a new home. That’s why I’m in Massachusetts with Foster Mom and Foster Dad and their pack. I’m a little nervous and shy, I’ve never been away from my family, but this new family gave me food, hugs and let me sleep with them. I gave FM sweet little kisses before I fell asleep. I slept very well. I just love being outside and running around and rolling in the grass.

FM says I need some basic training and she gives me chicken treats when I listen. YUMMY! I have to see the Vet man soon, something about being spayed and checkup. Foster Mom says I have beautiful pearly white teeth, being only 2 years old...I need to keep them that way for a long time. I’ll bark at you later, after I get settled into my new digs.

North Carolina
Bella

Meet precious Bella. She is 3-years-old (estimated) Maltese mix and she weighs 8.5 pounds. She is being fostered in North Carolina

THANK YUO TO BELLA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Irene and Peter Havas

Update 5/26/19

Here’s our beautiful Bella, an approximately two year old female Maltese. She has stolen our hearts and will make a fantastic family dog for a very lucky family. Bella gets along wonderfully with both our Yorkie boys, as well as our four year old daughter. We visited the dogtor last week where Bella got all her vaccines up to date and it was determined that she has an eye condition called entropion. This will require surgery by a specialist in order to be corrected. Bella will also require a dental and spay. Due to upcoming surgeries, Bella will not be immediately available for adoption. Please check back for updates on Bella- she is an extremely smart, sweet and happy little girl who deserves a fantastic home.

Initial Bio 5/9/19 Bella has just arrived in her foster home and is already proving to be a total lovebug! She is sweet, playful and loving. She is also house-trained which is a big plus. Bella just had her first visit to the Dogtor and is healthy but she does have an eye condition that will require special surgery. She also needs to be spayed so Bella will be in our care for a few weeks getting these needs addressed. Bella loves all living beings and will be happiest in a home with another doggy friends to be BFFs with. She loves children too so she’d be a good family dog. Stay tuned as we get to know her better and help us with the cost of her care by clicking the PayPal button below and thank you!

06/22/19

Update from Dogtor today... Chance was sick overnight he has been throwing up... they feel this is due to the pressure in his stomach has changed due to moving things back where they belong so it is causing him to be nauseated and vomit. They have been giving him anti-nausea medication. They are hoping this will improve throughout the day. With this in mind the dogtor and foster mom have decided that it would be in his best interest to spend another night in the hospital and we will reevaluate tomorrow. Again we can not thank you enough. Thank you to everyone who has prayed for him and made donations towards his medical bills... your continued support thru prayers and donations are appreciated.

06/21/19

Update just got a call from Dogtor about Chance he made it thru surgery she said he had 2 significant hernia's to be repaired. His Diaphram was torn in a Y shape and his liver, stomach, spleen, and intestines where pushed thru she also noted his spleen was fractured from the accident. All has now been repaired and everything back where it belongs. This was a major surgery for this sweet boy... he will need to stay at least 2 days in the hospital to make sure that everything is functioning properly and that he is out of the woods and on his way to a full recovery. She said he will be very sore from this for awhile he has lots of sutures inside. Dogtor said she doesn't anticipate any issues. We are very grateful for this news. Thank you to everyone who has prayed for him and made donations towards his medical bills... your continued support thru prayers and donations are appreciated.

6/20/19

Chance went for his PreOp appointment today his dogtor says he has another hernia in his small intestines as well has the one that has pushed thru the diaphragm also his liver is pushing thru the diaphragm so he may lose a portion of his liver. Foster mom was tearful as she left him this afternoon but knows he is in good hands and they are going to get this sweet boy all put back together. This is a major surgery and costly he will have to stay for a day or two in the hospital before foster mom can bring him home but we will keep everyone updated. Chance wants to thank everyone for your prayers and donations please keep them coming.

6/19/19

Chance has been a busy boy this week he has been to Dogtor for follow up and additional testing. He is on two strong antibiotics for the infection and they are giving him a mild pain pill but due to injuries he can not be sedated or given a very strong pain medication. Despite his injuries he is still very loving and wants to be with you at all times which is great since his dogtors recommendation is that he remain very calm. Foster mom is keeping him very close to her and monitoring him like a hawk. He will go Thursday to Blue Pearl for is Pre-Op appointment he will stay overnight and his surgery will be done Friday morning. His dogtor and foster mom are feeling positive that everything will turn out fine. Please keep Chance and foster mom in your prayers. Also Chance, Foster mom and UYR want to Thank everyone for their donations. Chance would appreciate any additional donations as he has been told this surgery will be very expensive... but he is so grateful for the everyone’s help in making him all better.

6/15/19: This sweet boy has just arrived in UYR and he has not had a good week at all. We have named him “Chance” in the hopes that with your help, some good luck and lots of love he might actually have one. On Thursday, Chance was hit by a car and according to witnesses at the scene the driver did not even try to swerve or stop to help him. A witness picked Chance up out of the ditch where his little body was thrown and took him to animal control. He received a basic medical evaluation there but they believed he had only soft tissue injuries and lots of bruising and would likely recover on his own. After his stray hold was up, UYR was contacted to help and they took Chance straight to a Veterinarian where a more extensive workup and X-rays were performed. Thank goodness this was done because Chance is worse off than initially believed and he has suffered substantial internal injuries. X-rays show that Chance has a diaphragmatic hernia which means that the impact of being hit by a car tore his diaphragm and created a hole which has caused his intestines to be displaced into his chest cavity. This means his lungs are being crowded and are not able to expand fully. It also means that Chance's intestines are in danger of becoming strangulated and if this happens he could lose part of them. In any event, Chance needs major surgery to repair his injuries as soon as possible so we are putting out a plea to our fans and supporters for help. We are trying to manage Chance medically with supportive care through the weekend so that he can have his corrective surgery early next week under the best of circumstances but if he takes a turn for the worse or shows any signs of breathing difficulty or intestinal blockage he will have to have immediate emergency surgery. At present he is under close observation and that will continue through the weekend. If you are able to help this sweet boy with a donation towards his care then we would be so very grateful.

Tennessee
Duchess

Duchess is a estimated 5-year-old, 10-pound Silky Terrier girl being fostered in Nashville, TN.

Update 6/19/19

Regal yet unsure, Duchess survived years in an Ohio Amish puppy mill and was surrendered having had as many litters of pups allowed under Ohio law. The vet has given this beautiful pup a clean bill of health; she has been spayed, and her teeth are shiny and clean.

She warms up very slowly but demonstrates confidence and loyalty once she does. Initially, she may avert her eyes, allowing humans to approach even as she fearful of their intent. Over the passing days, she has come to relish having her chin and head rubbed. The occasional side pet is welcome, too. Duchess will now approach her foster mom for affection and back off to wait for petting.

She knows that being picked up by humans is virtually inevitable, but she has come to understand that she is no longer in danger when she is picked up. She does the cutest pretend walk with her feet when being carried under her Foster Mom’s arm. Duchess is now making direct eye contact with deep dark eyes full of love and gratitude, and her sweet disposition suggests she will make an excellent companion for her forever mom or dad.

Duchess has been slow to interact with her foster brothers, but she has shown no signs of aggression. She eventually engaged in playful behavior with the larger of the two, and she now makes sure that she knows where they are and will follow them from room to room. Should the smaller brother tussle with the larger, Duchess often steps in the middle without a sound as if she sees herself protecting the smaller. Even then she is not aggressive as she nudges her brothers to a different activity. Her kind nurturing soul shows through in so many ways.

Duchess has discovered chewy bones, and she loves them! Her favorite activity seems to be sitting at foster mom’s feet with a chew bone or sleeping. She has not mastered the ramp or steps to get onto the couch or bed, but she will put her paws on the side to let FM know that she would like to be petted. While she isn’t a lap dog yet, she is comfortable on the couch or bed next to FM when she has some assistance to get there although she chooses to sleep on the carpeted floor.

As with most puppy mill survivors, Duchess has not been house-trained. Her potty behavior is consistent and interesting. She made short-order of disposable diapers and quickly figured out how to undo the Velcro of reusable diapers. Smart girl! She prefers to pee pee and poo in the kitchen near the door and virtually in the same spot every time. It’s as if she knows the process of going to the bathroom outside, but she is terribly afraid to go outdoors. She does cower after going to the bathroom. Also – when her foster brothers go out to take care of business, she will pee or poo while they are out with FM and is quite proud of herself when we return, waiting with wagging tail for the treats she knows the boys and she will receive.

She is quite comfortable going out onto the patio, and she has taken some steps in the corridor in our apartment building. Just yesterday (6/17) she took her first voluntary steps when placed on the sidewalk outside. As long as she is aware FM is holding the leash, she stands perfectly still. When the leash is on the ground or loose, she will move about to sniff, never wandering very far. Patience will be required to work with Duchess to master appropriate bathroom habits.

She will do well in a quieter home where she can be a focal point of attention and affection. She is fine with dogs her size or smaller who are not overly active or hyper. Older children may be fine, but I would not recommend young children as she is skittish and needs to feel safe to be able to relax. A confined space to explore outside may well assist in socializing her into her new normal, but above all she needs her human to love her unconditionally, recognizing that her challenges are not by her choice or fault. She has been abused and used, separated from numerous puppies, and discarded when she was no longer a profit-maker. Love is the balm that will heal this precious creature’s emotional wounds, and she is bound to be loyal and loving to the person who shows her the way home.

Update 4/5/19: Bunny was seen by the oncologist and she says she looks amazing. Overall her x-rays look really good as far as she is concerned. She does have a very large heart, she's on Vetmedin for that and at present there is no need to add anything more. Her trachea looks a little more relaxed and does not have such a roller coaster look to it as well. Her bloodwork looks very good. Her lymph node is considerably smaller. Hard to say if this chemo med is the reason why, but she's doing very well. No need for recheck until another 3 months. Despite all that is wrong with her, she's just so incredibly sweet.

BIO UPDATE. 03/01/19. Sweet baby Bunny, when you were a mill baby, wasn't the hell hole you lived in enough! Wasn't it enough that you were bred so damn much that you can't even tell your behind from your vagina, and your tail that lies inside this folded over sheath of skin to make matters worse. No it wasn't enough.

You, my sweet angel, had to have ear infections, bacterial skin infections, fungal looking long painful nails, tooth decay and missing your lower jaw due to decay. Let's add the icing to this cake baby. Your breeder didn't take care of you and all of those mammary tumors either. We did though. United Yorkie Rescue stepped in and we took 2 weeks to try to get weight on your emaciated body and heal some of your issues. We took away those tumors, and that baby maker.

But my sweet angel, sadly your breeder gave you something I can't fix...sadly we received the news today from Bunny's oncologist that she has metastatic cancer. But Bunny do you know how fortunate you truly are? You are in my home now. Your life of pain and misery will be a faded memory. You will have soft beds and blankets every day. I have enough love to take you on this journey, and you have a family outside of our walls that already love you as well.

I ask everyone to please keep Bunny in your prayers for these next few months. Please continue to help us with her medical needs. Please donate to her care at www.uyr.us. Thank you and Bless you!

Update 2/23/19: This morning I sat in the vet's office with Dr. Jessie and just cried. You know you can only be strong to a point, and today was just the tip of that point. Bunny, one of the Fortunate Four mill rescue babies, finally had her appointment with an oncologist because during her first vet visit after rescue, the vet discovered not only did she have a very bad heart murmur, but chest x-rays showed her trachea to have this roller coaster look to it. Did any of this matter... not really... because her exam zeroed in on a swollen lymph node in her groin. She took Bunny to the back, aspirated the node, looked at the slide and saw cells that shouldn't be there but officially, we wait until Monday for the pathologist to give us the report. Bunny's doctor at that point told me what time we maybe looking at, and the tears just started to flow in my eyes and in hers as well. She listened to me telling her how this precious baby deserved so much more time of the good than the hell she lived in, and how much pain we see them go through after the rescue because we have to fix all the horrible things that their abusers neglected to care for. I will guarantee you she will be a princess for whatever time God has planned for her and I will make sure this mill is put to rest for her. In the meantime, Bunny needs your prayers! We also ask you to please help us share her story, and please, please donate so we can medically support Bunny and the Fortunate Four mill rescue's.

Thank you UYR family!!!

UPDATE 02/22/19. Bunny is home!! As you may remember, her presurgical exam once again alerted to a 5 out of 6 heart murmur, so x-rays were once again performed to look at the chest. Sadly, they feel what they are seeing is real and Bunny has been referred to oncology for answers regarding her chest. We have an appointment with the Oncologist on Saturday the 23rd, where we will be doing additional testing so we can get answers as to what is lying under her sternum and in those lymph nodes. I am also heavy feeding Bunny, even more so than before, to try to turn her weight loss around. I know her sur sibling in the mill rescue, Cash, did not have any weight gain as well, although Bunny had a 2lb loss! I am praying that these babies were just so stressed, and their bodies just need time to turn this around.

We also have started Bunny on specialty compounded eye drops for her dry eye, and instead of looking at gooey flat dull eyes there is a sparkly shine that was so absent!! She did get her spay, which also included an excise of an almond shaped mass attached to her uterus, another lipoma like mass on her left side as well, and 9 mammary tumors as well. Biopsies have been sent out with results due in possibly today. Please In the meantime, please continue to support these babies as these specialty Drs come with specialty tests which we need for answers regarding Bunny.

Update 2/9/19: We now have a current picture of Bunny who is another one of the Fortunate Four that was recently rescued from the puppy mill last week. Bunny is currently receiving medicated baths due to flea and tick infestation. She has major hair loss all over her body however, her vets feel this is due to the infestation her body endured. Bunny is EXTREMELY emaciated and cannot undergo surgery for her needs so let me tell you where we are in her treatment. Bunny had severe bilateral ear infections in which we treated her this past week with an antibiotic. She also had a vicious eye infection in both eyes. She has received antibiotics for that as well, and now we are treating her eyes with a lubricating gel to protect her vision and her tear production. Bunny is horribly disfigured in her genital area from being nothing more than a breeding machine. It is very hard to differentiate her anatomy and even her tail, as it is engulfed in a sheath of thickening skin. She has a ravenous appetite and we are hoping that she will have some weight gain that will add to her stability during her upcoming surgery. Bunny also has a 5 out of 6 heart murmur. As stated before, her lymph nodes that lie under her sternum are so enlarged with all of this infection that we have started her on vetmedin to protect her heart as her body heals. Along with all of this, Bunny has lost some of her lower jaw due to horrific detal decay and we will have to see after her dental if there are any teeth we can save. She will need a spay. We also know, she has many mammary tumors as well so we are expecting to have biopsies and possible entire chain removal depending of the status of these tumors. Please continue to support us with these horrifically abused angels.

Update 2/5/19: This is precious Bunny, the second of the Fortunate Four puppy mill dogs just taken in. Bunny has very unusual anatomy near her rectum and vagina which is a result of prolonged over-breeding. She has multiple mammary tumors on both sides and evidence of recent and frequent nursing. Bunny has almost no lower jaw bone and no lower teeth at all. Her uppers are barely hanging on from years of dental neglect. She has severe bacterial skin infection and bilateral ear infections and is extremely thin bordering on emaciation. Bunny was going to have surgery tomorrow for her mammary tumors but she has been diagnosed with a pretty bad heart murmur; grade 5 of 6. X-rays revealed that the lymph nodes under her sternum are so enlarged from years of chronic infection that they are pressing on her sternum and trachea which can compromise her airway so anesthesia is not advised until her infection is under control. She has been started on antibiotics and medication to treat heart failure and her surgery is postponed until she is more stable.

Conan after surgery
Texas
Conan

Conan is a sweet 10 year old, 12 pound little boy who is vision and hearing impaired. He is being fostered in Fort Worth, TX.

THANK YOU TO CONAN'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Lynne Turner, Tawana Couch, Cindy Mitchell-Clark, Sandy Pagnotta, Wendy Fuhrnaneck, Rosemary Ward, Barbara Niro, Marta Balleste

3/16/19: This is the new and improved and very healthy Conan. This baby was blind and having so much pain from his eyes that the ophthalmic veterinarian strongly urged the foster mom to have his eyes removed. Wow what a difference! This little guy’s tail wags all the time, he likes to chew on bones and loves his bed and blanket. Muffins Halo donated a halo to him so he doesn’t hit is head when walking outside or around the house. Conan is also mostly deaf but what a sweetheart! He will need a home that is patient with him, knows that he needs to learn the home and the outdoors and just wants to cuddle with this guy. He does wear a belly band but when he goes outside, he knows what to do. If you think you have the perfect home for Conan, please fill out an on line application using the link below.

Update 1/26/19: What a sad story for such a sweet loving little boy! Can you love me and give me a home? Conan came into rescue through a plea for a rescue on social media. This angel was found wandering very slowly on the side of the freeway with his nose down struggling to find his way. Dog Rescue 911 was called and immediately transported this baby to the vet. Covered in a matted coat, his little eyes were so infected with green discharge and his matted fur had glued itself to his face covering his eyes. A bath was ordered and a quick groom to assess Conan's additional needs. It was found that Conan had two large tumors. One tumor was in the middle of his forehead and the other, quite large, surrounded the neck from the front to the back. Sadly, after shaving this hair, it became apparent that Conan was possibly totally blind. A plan was put into action, and immediately vetting was done to remove the tumors and do biopsies, neuter and give this baby a much-needed dental where 6 teeth were extracted. To look at Conan you could also notice that he had one eye larger than the other and there really was no definition to his eyes. To make sad matters worse, we also believe that Conan cannot hear. On Monday, we took Conan to the Eye Institute and learned that due to chronic inflammation, glaucoma and possible juvenile cataracts, his eyes are painful. We will enucleate both eyes after we get all things stable in his life. Currently, we are also in the process of setting up a hearing test for Conan. The good news is besides his loss of sight and possible hearing, Conan is HW negative and his bloodwork is just perfect for such a terribly neglected baby. Nothing has touched my heart more than for this baby to turn, while I am physically directing him, and come up close to me and paw my pant leg to be picked up and hugged! I look forward to coming home and picking this angel up and setting him in my lap and just giving him belly rubs until the snores finally come.

Conan is a gentle soul that will need a special home. If you have the love to give this angel, please contact his foster momma at yorkierescue60@gmail.com . Please also remember that because of your generous donations, we are able to help babies such as Conan. If you are able to donate, please go to www.uyr.us and click DONATE. Bless you!

Initial Bio 1/18/19: Conan just came into rescue and has been to see the regular vet and a specialist for his eyes. Please stay tuned as we learn more about this sweet boy.


To date we've spent $996.03 on Conan's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $305.00 in donations.

Cooper

Cooper TX

Cooper is a 12 year old, 13 pound Yorkie boy who is being fostered in Fort Worth, TX with his best buddy, Joe Bradley.

Initial Bio 6-9-19: Cooper is half of a bonded pair with Joe Bradley. He is 12 years old and just oh so sweet. He and his brother, Joe Bradley, have been together since they were 10 weeks old. Sadly, their loving owner passed away and his family has decided to put them with UYR so we could find a loving home where they can live out the rest of their lives. His foster mom is still getting to know Copper and he is overweight but foster mom is on top of his diet and has reduced his calorie intake. Even at 12 years, this little Yorkie mix loves, loves to play and his little growl is just so cute when he plays. He has been to the vet and only lost a couple of teeth but other than that, his health is great. Cooper will go to the groomer in the next few days and new pictures are coming. If you want to give these brothers a loving home, please fill out an application at www.unitedyorkierescue.org. Stay tuned for more updates as we get to know him better.

Meet Jersey, a sweet 9 year old, 8 pound little girl being fostered in Leander, TX.

THANK YOU TO JERSEY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

6-9-19 Update - Guess what day it is?? No, not hump day; it diagnosis day! I took a long trip with foster dad to Texas A&M this week to hopefully find out what is going on with my frequent stumbles.I thought I was at a spa, that facility was so nice. Even though it was a super long day and I didn't feel very good for a couple days after, I finally left with a diagnosis to my troubles. I couldn't understand a lot of what the nice doctors were saying, but foster dad explained it to me on the two hour drive home. Apparently I have three issue that could cause my stumbles individually, or all three together could be the cause. I have an excessive build up of cerebral fluid in my spinal column. The good news is this is treated with medicine that I take each morning. I will be on this for the next several weeks to see if my symptoms improve. If they don't, then we will have to explore the other two issues. I also have bulging disk in my neck. Three actually, but only one seems to compressing my spinal cord. This could have happened when I was dropped by a young person shortly before my surrender. This fix would require a fairly invasive surgery, but with great success rates. If that doesn't get me back to normal, the next issue is a congenital disorder where bone from my spine is growing in a way that is putting pressure on the lower part of my brain. Common in my breed and also treatable. The surgery is still a little more invasive than the disk surgery, but also with a great success rate. I am very hopeful that the medicine works, because I don't think I like the word surgery, even if I'm not sure what it means. Once I have overcome these stumbles by getting better, I will be looking for the perfect parents. Until then please help by making a donation to my care at unitedyorkierescue.org under my profile. The treatments are very expensive and I need all the help I can get. Signing off for now - Jersey

4/19/19 - Howdy folks! I am so excited I can barely contain myself. I had another round of testing at the dogtor last week and the results are in. All my liver functions are in NORMAL ranges. Let me repeat that...NORMAL. I have been trying to convince everyone that I was the perfect little baby, and no there is no disputing it now! I am so ready to meet my forever family. I have become quite attached to foster mom and dad, but I know there is a super family out there that has never ending love for me. And I am anxious to get my life started with them. If that special someone is you (you know who you are), please get an application in so foster mom and dad can begin the adoption process.

UPDATE BIO. 3/24/19 Happy Spring everyone! I have some good news to update everyone. I had another visit with the dogtor and had an ultrasound and biopsy. The results came back fairly positive. I do not have any cancerous cells, but the ultrasound did reveal some abnormalities in my liver and gall bladder. My liver is slightly swollen and gall bladder is retaining some sludge. Dogtor is not positive if the liver is causing the gall bladder problems or vice versa. I am now on medication for both and will go back to the vet in a month for another bile acid test to see if we have concurred my issues.I am definitely on the mend and really settling in with foster mom and dad.

I had my first grooming on Thursday, and boy am I cute! If I don't say so myself. I was on my best behavior as my stylist made me look so pretty. I am looking forward to meeting a new family that wants to love and take care of me for the rest of my days. I have so much love to give!

Anxiously awaiting your application to adopt me!

Jersey UPDATE BIO. 2/23/19. Hey everyone, Jersey here. I wanted to give you an update on my progress with foster mom and dad and my recent visits to the dogtor. I have decided that foster mom and dad are pretty fun. Foster dad brings me to work with him almost every day, so I am getting more comfortable in the car and love getting to spend the day with a lot of loving folks. I have been sharing my new home with a foster brother, Pepe the chihuahua, who seems to not mind my presence at all. We don't play, as I am still a little under the weather. I have definitely begun to show my personality more and have a little zip in my step now.

I sleep so well through the night and have shown foster mom and dad that I am 100% potty trained. I have been to the vet a few times to try to figure out what is causing my awkward gait, and am getting closer to a diagnosis and treatment plan. The focus has been on my liver function, because some tests have pointed in that direction. It was confirmed this week that there is definitely something going on and I am scheduled for another test March 11th. I am hopeful that this test will pinpoint my illness and I can begin the road to recovery. I am a super loving pup that just wants to share my life with a super loving family. More updates to come after my next round of testing.

Initial Bio 2/17/19: Howdy folks! My name is Jersey, but don’t let it fool you. I am not a northern girl, as I am proud to be a Texan. I am almost 9 years old and just under 8 pounds of lovable, sweet, Yorkie. I was recently surrendered to UYR by a savior that has tried to help me several times over my life. She wanted to provide a great home for me, but other puppies in the house occupied the only spaces her home would allow. So she did the next best thing and put me with new foster mom and dad. I have been here a week and am really settling in. I am a perfect southern young lady that is completely housetrained, a great snuggle buddy, loves other dogs, and sleeps through the night. I don’t bark at much and really love my two meals a day. I even like to observe things being cooked in the kitchen by foster mom and dad. I am not very fond of riding in the car or baths, but I will tolerate them.

I have been to the dogtor a few times last week to try to narrow down an issue I am having with my gait. I am fairly slow to get around, can appear a little dizzy at times, and really can’t navigate any steps to and from the house. I also suffer from dry eye syndrome, but have medication that I have been taking twice a day that keeps that in check. Dogtor has scheduled another test for me this week to get a better understanding of what is going on. Updates will follow.

I am looking for a forever home with a mom and dad that have a lot of time for me. I love to be on the couch with them, but need help getting up and down. Ideally my new parents will not have small children due to my size and lack of quick reflexes. I have a Texas size amount of love to give and want so badly to share that with my new parents.

Kacie

Meet Kacie, a sweet 15 year old, 8 pound Yorkie girl being fostered in Gainesville, TX.

THANK YOU TO KACIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Marty Mullendore

6/23/19: Meet KACIE and look at this precious face! Kacie just never ceases to amaze me. At 15yrs old, yes I said 15, this princess is blind but she is very much in touch with everything around her. She is the first one to hit the kitchen when its dinner time and she absolutely loves to go outside and be in the yard. This amazing little girl had sight, but slowly lost the tissue in her left eye due to KCS (dry eye) and had an enucleation of that eye. She has progressively lost the sight in her right eye and is on eye meds to manage the KCS. Kacie gets along beautifully with all the animals and her humans. She is loving the hugs she gets and now gives the sweetest kisses too. She is truly housetrained as she does ask to go out, however, we do have occasional accidents which I cannot blame on this angel. Other than her sight loss, she is as healthy as can be and just adorable! If you feel you have the love and home to offer this sweet angel, please fill out an application on our website at www.uyr.us or email me at yorkiefostertx@gmail.com.

INITIAL BIO. 6-12-19. Precious 15yr old, 8lb Kacie was just so loved by her owners! We have an adopter chosen for this sweet angel, already.

Kacie is totally blind and we wanted to bring her in and place her directly into a home she could relearn. She will have a dental and be home sweet home. Please adopt and donate at www.uyr.us!!!

Adoption Pending

To date we've spent $992.23 on Kacie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $50.00 in donations.

Lily
Texas
Lily TX

Meet Lily. Lily is an 10-year-old, 14-pound Yorkie girl being fostered in TX.

THANK YOU TO LILY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Brandy Caldwell Swanson

6/9/19 Update - Howdy folks! Lily here again to let you know what I've been up to. I was so excited that I had a family that wanted to take me in forever, but they unfortunately backed out yesterday. :( So sad that it didn't work out, but it is probably for the best if they were having second thoughts.I am still hopeful my perfect adoptive family will find me soon. Foster mom and dad continue to give me all the love I can handle while learning more and more about me every day. I have shown that I am house trained when someone is at home with me and puppy pad trained when left alone for long periods. I enjoy roaming the backyard, rolling in the grass, and laying in the warm Texas sun. I also love walks so much that I can hardly contain myself when my harness goes on. I am a perfect lady with my foster brother and sister and always allow them to eat first at dinner time. I am hoping a great family with older children, single parents over the age of 25, or retirees that want to give me a life full of love will fill out an application to adopt me at unitedyorkierescue.org. Or you can contact my foster parents directly at uyryorkielovetx@yahoo.com. I be here patiently waiting.

UPDATE BIO: 05/12/19. Hello everyone! Well, it's been a month since my last update and I'm beginning to get a little worried that I won't find my forever home. I know foster mom and dad love me so much and have shared how sweet and well behaved I am with everyone, but I still haven't had any inquires to adopt me. Even though life is really great here with foster mom and dad, I really want to begin my journey with my forever parents. I have so much love to give and looking for the same in return. I'm hypoallergenic, good with kids and other pets, potty trained, super soft, a great snuggler, and loyal companion. Who wouldn't want me, right??

If you have a place in your heart and home for me. I will give you all my love and attention in return. Please contact foster mom and dad at uyryorkieloveTX@yahoo.com. It's my Mother's Day wish.

Update 4/13/19:Boy, do I have some great news! I went to see the dogtor this week to get my teeth cleaned. They were in pretty rough shape according to; well everyone. Luckily I made it through a much needed cleaning and only lost three teeth! That may seem like a lot to some of you, but I really don't miss them at all. It took a couple days of soft food before I felt like eating some treats again, but now I'm back to like nothing happened. Except my breath is as fresh as it was when I was a puppy. All my blood work came out perfect prior to my dental and now I am ready to be with my perfect parents. I still love snuggling with my foster parents and my foster siblings. I would really like someone who can be home with me a lot, but I do ok on my own for short periods of time. If I had some siblings (other dogs or cats) to keep me company, that would just be the best. I have adapted very well to foster mom's and dad's schedule, but am ready to make the move to my forever home. If that is you, please hurry to the UYR website to fill out an application or contact my foster parents at uyryorkielovetx@yahoo.com.

Initial Bio 3/27/19: Lily is a 10 yr old, 14 lb female that is as sweet as sugar. She is already spayed, but will need a dental to complete her vetting. Her blood work showed some of her values to be off due to neglect so after a week of TLC she will be ready to complete her vetting.

Lily is a quiet and reserved angel that simply loves to snuggle on the couch and enjoy belly rubs. I think she never learned about toys and playing, but that's ok, love is the easiest thing to give and receive. Lily came into rescue as an owner surrender dumped at a shelter with 2 other fur siblings. All the babies were very neglected as well, so rescue was called.

Lily is adapting very well to life with her foster family. She has two fur siblings that she is the perfect angel with. She is housetrained and loves her time outside. She has become quite the matriarch to her two fur siblings, where both enjoy being near her when possible. Lily will make the perfect companion to anyone willing to share their life with her. If you feel you have the perfect home to give this beautiful little girl, please fill out an application or contact foster mom at uyryorkielovetx@yahoo.com.

Little Bit
Texas
Little Bit TX

Meet precious Lil Bit.. He is handsome 12- yr-old boy who weighs 5 lbs. He is being fostered in TX.

THANK YOU TO LITTLE BIT'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Laura Bentley, Holly Keller, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Teresa Beament

4/5/19: Lil Bit was rechecked and his blood values are still off; in addition he has an infection brewing somewhere. He is starting antibiotics and we're are adding iron to his food. Lil Bit has a great appetite and has been on puppy food but despite that he lost a few ounces. He has been having some dry heaving spells and a lil spit up the past two days. We are adding cerenia for this. The vet feels it may be his teeth as they are just awful, but he does have the testicle tumors as well. We will wait another week or two before we try again for this surgery. In the meantime, we are adding 2 more feedings to see if this helps with his weight loss.

Initial Bio. 03/27/19. Sweetness is all I can say about this tiny nugget! Lil Bit is one of three owner surrenders. He is a 12 year, 5lb adorable little Yorkie. He was quickly surrendered at a nearby shelter after his female owner passed. But that's ok, after seeing the neglect of the 3 surrendered, United Yorkie Rescue was definitely needed for their care.

Lil Bit has testicle tumors which he will have removed while completing his neuter. He is also in dire need of a dental. He is currently getting some TLC and good groceries to prepare him for his upcoming surgery. His blood work is actually very good. Lil Bit also has arthritis that has settled in his spine but it doesn't stop this baby from trying to keep up...especially if he knows there is something brewing in the kitchen!!

After we complete his vetting this baby will need a furever home. His purfect home would be one that is maybe a retired couple or someone who does not have chilldren, due to his age and size. He is just adorable and loves nothing more than to cuddle up or cuddle into a fluffy bed and let's not forget to eat LOL. If you feel you have the purfect home for Lil Bit please fill out an application or email foster mom at yorkiefostertx@gmail.com.


To date we've spent $2113.87 on Little Bit TX's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $95.00 in donations.

Mollie Fay
Texas
Mollie Fay

Mollie Fay is a sweet 3 year old, 12 pound Yorkie being fostered in Fort Worth, TX.

THANK YOU TO MOLLIE FAY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Brandy Caldwell Swanson

Update 6/1/19: Mollie Fay had surgery a couple of weeks ago and three large urinary stones were removed. She has finished all of her medications and is doing fabulous!!! What a change! This young lady is running, playing with the other dogs, and loves to play fetch with her toys. This sweet girl loves to play outdoors so a home with a yard would be ideal for her. She loves playing with the other dogs and in fact initiates play. She is full of personality plus! She was snoring this morning while sleeping on her back in her foster mom’s bed and she is a snuggler. She is on prescription dog food – Hills CD for urinary care – and will have to stay on that for the remainder of her life. If you are interested in adopting this beautiful girl, please fill out an adoption application.

INITIAL BIO. 05/22/19. Mollie Fay is a 17 pound bag of sweetness and cuddles. This baby was a surrender by her loving owners who have had her since she was a puppy. Her prior owners are a sweet elderly couple who moved to a small apartment and then discovered that Mollie Fay had bladder stones. The surgery was just too cost prohibitive so Mollie Fay’s prior mom put out a call to United Yorkie Rescue for help. Mollie Fay currently has bladder stones and is due to have surgery soon to have them removed so it will be a while before she is ready for adoption. In the meantime, the vet has had her on medicine until her surgery.

When Molly first came to her foster mom’s she was skittish, shy, and confused. She would not eat and would run to her crate and sit in the back. Her foster mom started by hand feeding her, and holding her in her lap. Mollie would just bury her little face in foster mom’s arms. By the second night, Mollie Fay was sleeping with foster mom and dad and would only go to her crate on occasion. She eventually began to eat from her bowl in the kitchen with the rest of the pack. She is now playing with one of the younger Yorkies in the home and loves to be outside!

This young lady will need to see a vet regularly for the rest of her life and be checked for bladder stones. She will need to be on prescription dog food and no people food – an occasional bite of chicken or green bean is okay. Mollie Fay loves, loves to cuddle, sleep with you and just hang out on the sofa with her people. She follows foster mom everywhere around the house and jumps up and down when her people come home. Molly would do better in a home with older or no children. Mollie has a lot of love and affection to give to a family that wants to just love on her and take care of her for the remainder of her life. If you are interested in this gem for future adoption, please submitt an application www.unitedyorkierescue.org.


To date we've spent $553.00 on Mollie Fay's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $35.00 in donations.

Zoey

Zoey

Meet the angelic Zoey. Zoey is a sweet 10 pound, 8-year-old, Yorkie girl being fostered in Dallas/Fort Worth area of TX.

ZOEY IS VERY ILL RIGHT NOW AND NO ADOPTION APPLICATIONS WILL BE CONSIDERED UNTIL WE KNOW SHE IS HEALTHY AGAIN.

THANK YOU TO ZOEY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Staci Stevens, Lauren Satterfield, Cheryl Scrupski, Gretchen Holseth, Omar Zapata, Kathy Ollom, Teresa Beament, Susan Klingbeil

6/22/19 Update- Hi everyone! Zoey here again, I am back in UYR care again after being adopted last year. I really thought I was going to have a change of luck but unfortunately my new adoptive momma wasn’t my forever home. She really didn’t take care of me at all and now I’m back with a new foster mom and I am really in critical state and feeling terrible. I was hospitalized on Friday with a low temperature and low blood pressure and seriously bad kidney values. Thankfully UYR is doing all they can to make sure I start to feel better. My foster mom came to visit me today in the hospital. It was so nice to see her and I just laid my head in her hands. We are hoping I get to go home and get better on Monday. Please send good vibes as I really want to go home and have my foster mom find my perfect FOREVER home.

Initial Bio: 6/2/19 Zoey is an adorable 9 - 10yr old, 16lb baby girl, that has arrived back into rescue!! We are beyond glad to have her back, as her previous owner failed to maintain her health. Zoey has been re-vetted with a new dental losing 4 teeth, new eye meds to treat her dry eyes, and antibiotics and shampoo to treat a skin infection. We will not be fixing a cruciate ligament rupture per her vet due to the fact of scar tissue and the duration of the injury being almost a year old. She just has a little girly swing in her step lol!! However, we are putting her on meds to help her to maintain good joints.

Zoey is just an absolute sweetheart looking for someone just to love her and give her sweet belly rubs. She loves to talk and its adorable to hear. She is totally housetrained however, we are watching her for supposedly leaking. If this is the case she will have a bladder med that should fix that issue.

We would love for Zoey to be the only dog so that she can be spoiled beyond measure, as she so deserves this, after the life this angel has lived prior to or rescue. Her bio tells or such a horror story in her sweet life. If you have a home that can provide this baby just love, belly rubs, doggie beds and a lifetime of happiness, please contact foster mom at nicole.acos@gmail.com


To date we've spent $4841.79 on Zoey's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $355.00 in donations.

Lily

Lily WV

Lily is a sweet 3 pound, 10 year old Yorkie girl being fostered in West Virginia. Please Help Save Lily's Life

THANK YOU TO LILY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Mary Whitaker, Sandy Pagnotta, Sylvia Stapleton, Erik Ebert, Sasha Aaronson

Initial Bio 2/22/19: Little Lily needs our help now! This tiny little girl is very sick. She has had chronic diarrhea since October, is losing weight, and is starting to lose her hair. She weighs a slight 3 1/2 pounds. Her vets recommended euthanasia but her owner didn't give up. Lily's mom went to work to find a rescue experienced in PLE, Protein Losing Enteropathy, often fatal in Yorkies. Her owner drove Lily halfway across the US to her new home. Putting all personal feelings aside, Lily's owner did the final act of love and asked us to save her precious little girl. Lily just had her first vet appointment. Her vet did confirm PLE. She had tests performed and is on several medications. Her follow-up visit is in two weeks. This visit will determine if Lily is responding to her new regimen. She may never be healed, but we are hoping to manage her disease. How a four pound Yorkie has survived this deterioration to her intestinal tract is a testament to her survival skills. Please donate to save this tiny sweet girl's life. This will be a long process to save her. She is not available for adoption at this time so her vet bills will need donations. We will update her prognosis soon.


To date we've spent $883.67 on Lily WV's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $200.00 in donations.

Update 4/1/19: Sweet tiny 14 year old Merry really needs our help. She had three surgeries today and her bill is over $1100. Little four pound Merry was found in bitter cold December, collapsed on the streets of Brooklyn, starved, unable to walk. Merry came to us still unable to walk. Her strength was slowly built until she could withstand three serious surgeries. She had a mammary tumor, a spay was needed to prevent more tumors, and her last two teeth were causing pain. Finally in April, she was able to get the care she needed after rebuilding her strength. Merry was quite a risk for surgery but there was no choice. The mammary tumor was growing. Merry sailed right through the surgeries and came home looking for her dinner. She has two pain meds and she is going to be watched closely. Please consider donating to help with this bill. Without our donors, Merry could not have been given the care she so desperately needed.

INITIAL BIO. 12/11/18. Welcome Merry, our Christmas Yorkie, to United Yorkie Rescue. Merry has quite a story that may turn out to be a Christmas miracle. United Yorkie Rescue takes in many Yorkies every year, and we get them ready for adoption. But there is another part of the rescue that touches us all. It's the little ones we get that are desperately clinging to life.

Merry, 14 years old, blind, and only four pounds, was brought into the Brooklyn New York shelter, starving, emaciated, and unable to walk. The vet records noted her condition was guarded to poor. The shelter reached out to us asking to help this little soul. Honestly, we thought she was coming here to pass in a warm safe place. Merry made the seven hour journey and she never stood. She got home, got a bath, a bed, and a warm dinner. Foster mom left her in her bed in a quiet room to feed the other fosters. Upon returning, there was feeble little Merry, about three feet from her bed, making little tiny prancing steps!

Merry got another meal before before retiring for the night. She goes to the vet tomorrow and our goal is to keep her comfortable. We don't know how this tiny soul ended up abandoned on the streets of New York in the freezing winter. What we do know is that we are dedicated to making her retirement the best part of her life. Please consider helping little Merry, our Christmas rescue. We may not be able to adopt out this little girl so she will rely only on donations. On her freedom ride home, Frank Sinatra was singing "Have yourself a Merry little Christmas, may your heart be light. From now on your troubles will be out of sight." Merry became her name. She is safe for the rest of her life.


To date we've spent $1609.57 on Merry's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1175.00 in donations.

Meet Loki, an 11 year old 5 pound male being fostered in Madison, WI.

THANK YOU TO LOKI'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Mark Maddox, Kate Young, Angela Horrighs, Becky Lansing, Maureen Jackson, Katalin Nagy-Takio, Kate Young, Carol Nelson, Cindy Foster, Jessica Lundquist, Beth Tessman

UPDATE BIO. 06/23/19. Loki is now home and eating and drinking on his own regularly. He really needed the extra time at the vet getting fluids and some ‘round the clock’ care. Right now we really believe that Loki has turned a corner! Because of his condition, Loki will not be adopted out until he is medically ready. He needs to gain almost 1 pound, in addition to having the area on his shoulder where the ruptured cyst to improve.

Loki is struggling with what I call “night terrors”. He will jerk awake from a good sleep and “scream” as he looks around where he is. I think he must have had some pretty scary nights on his own and still doesn’t always remember he is safe now. Loki continues to be very sweet, even with everything he has been through. He wants nothing more than to be with his person all the time. Thank you for the contributions toward his care. This wonderful little senior deserves to be spoiled full time

Initial Bio 6-19-19: Day 1: UYR got an urgent call from the local Humane Society about a small yorkie male who was in desperate need of rescue. He went from the shelter directly to the vet where he was assessed. We learned that he is severely underweight (he was a condition grade 3/9), has skin and hair problems, an infection in his ear, cataracts, moderate matting of his coat, grossly overgrown nails, and a severely infected mouth and is deaf. In addition to these issues, Loki came in with a 1.5 x 1.5 inch open infected area on his left shoulder. It was also discovered that he had a severe bruise on his left front leg.

Loki was found running down a country road and was picked up by local law enforcement who delivered him to the Humane Society. It was suspected that he would not have lived much longer without help. The area he was in is known for frequent sightings of coyote. We are so thankful that he was able to look for help before something bad happened.

When we got back from the vet, Loki was given a bath and had the matts cut out. The water was almost black! We spent some time in the back yard where he followed me everywhere! He is such a sweet loving little guy. During the night, he kept waking up crying every hour or so. I reassured him each time that I was still there.

Day 2: Today was a big day for Loki. He was first for surgery. They monitored his heart rate and rhythm and oxygen level to ensure he was tolerating being under anesthesia. They took x-rays and discovered that his mouth was worse than they originally thought. Loki had 18 teeth pulled due to the severe infection that was there. He was left with only a few teeth. They gave him a lot of pain meds to help him with the pain. They were also able to remove the ruptured cyst and stitch it closed. He was pretty outof it when I picked him up late in the day.

Day 3: Loki did not move much during the night. He has not had anything to eat or drink since his first day here. I called the vet because I had concerns about dehydration and his struggle with waking up. It was decided that Loki needed to go back to the vet to be given fluids and a tube to get some nourishment into him. They are watching him to ensure he begins to turn the corner. Loki will be picked up later today. The medical bills for Loki are already significant. If you are able to help this little survivor, that would be much appreciated. He is such a sweet little boy who has been through so much already. Thank you!

Nemo
Wisconsin
Nemo

Nemo is an adorable 11 year old, 6 pound Yorkie boy being fostered near Milwaukee, WI.

THANK YOU TO NEMO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Meena Olomi, Sandra Wendt

INITIAL BIO. 6/2/19: Since his rescue, Nemo has shown to be the sweetest little boy ever. He loves to snuggle with his person all the time, in bed and even when you are relaxing on the sofa. He is my little shadow and enjoys getting love and attention. He gets along with the other small dogs in his foster home and he is very well trained, although accidents can occur if he's not allowed to go outside frequently.

With his small size, he will need to go to a home with no young children under the age of 12. He should have a fenced in, secure yard, with a family that is home most of the time. He was reported to be a picky eater, but since coming here and eating the home-cooked diet I prepare, he has become an eager eater, cleaning his bowl at breakfast and dinner. He will want to sleep with you in bed at night and sleeps nicely through the night. If you think you might be able to give Nemo the perfect home, please complete an adoption application on our website at: www.uyr.us.

Adoption Pending

To date we've spent $14.94 on Nemo's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $64.94 in donations.
