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

THANK YOU TO CHAUNCEY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

THANK YOU TO THOSE WHO DONATED TOWARD CHAUNCEY'S EXPENSES VIA THE BETTY WHITE CHALLENGE

Michelle McLean, Arla Lewis

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

THANK YOU TO BUDDY TRUE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Lauren Satterfield, Sandy Pagnotta, Susan Reeves, Alexa Socha, DeAnn Deutsch

1/7/22: Hi my name is Max and the vet told my foster mom he thinks I'm 9-10 years old. I am very mellow and I love taking naps. I discovered toys a couple of days ago, it's fun to make them squeak but my mouth is sore because I have a tooth abscess. I am getting my dental on Monday and that will hopefully help me feel better. I get along with my foster brothers and sisters, and I have a great appetite. I hope to put on a couple more pounds in the new year.

12/3/21 Initial Bio: Max (aka Buddy True) was rescued today. Please watch for further information on this sweet boy.

Handsome and Distinguished

Daddy and Son!
Florida
Bandit (and Junior)

This shaggy Yorkie Mix fellow is Bandit. Bandit is a 7 year old, chubby 10.5 pound fellow. Bandit is being fostered in Vero Beach, Florida.

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

THANK YOU TO BANDIT'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Mary Corbin

UPDATED BIO 1/17/22: Meet Bandit... He is 7 years young and weighs 10.5 pounds. This handsome, sweet guy is being fostered in Vero Beach, Florida.

Bandit has luxating patellas of his back legs, but this is not hindering him at this time, but can be re-assessed as he ages. He has mastered the use of doggy steps to get to his favorite resting/napping spot on the sofa.

Bandit & Junior are a bonded pair and must be adopted together. Junior is with his dad at all times and he becomes unhappy if he cannot be where his dad is.

They are not house-trained at all, nor are they pee pad trained. Foster mom has not been able to find the secret (yet) to prevent their poor bathroom manners. Maybe this can improve once their neuter is completed (scheduled for next week). For now, both of them are sporting belly bands.

Junior only eats after his Dad, Bandit, has finished eating (Bandit has a very hefty appetite) & then Junior eats very small amounts. It may be that this improves after his dental next week. Foster mom noticed that both of them remove their food from their bowls so that they can eat off of the floor. It seems both were fed table food/scraps, so this is an adjustment that they will have to get used to.

They are not yet leash trained (a work in progress). For this reason, a fenced yard is required in their furever home. They both really enjoy being outside. Neither of them are treat enticed & foster mom has tried many types of treats! They seem to want what foster mom offers in her hand, but they have refused each & every treat.

Both are quiet/nonbarkers except if a car is in the vicinity, unusual noises, & anyone is at our door. When that happens, Bandit gets very vocal, and Junior chimes in. The same is true whenever they are exposed to other animals. They bark, but are nonaggressive & do not initiate an encounter.

They both ride well in a car & seem to enjoy it. They get along fine with the two resident foster mom's Yorkies. They have never used a crate. Although they are welcome to sleep in the bed with the resident Yorkies & the foster parents, they seem to prefer a bed on the sofa.

Next week will be a busy time since they are scheduled to go to the dogster for a neuter and dental. The rest of their vetting has been completed.

Because Junior is so tiny & timid, no applicants with children less than 12 years old will be considered for this bonded pair.

1/13/21 INITIAL BIO Bandit and his little son Junior just arrived at United Yorkie Rescue. They were sadly surrendered by their owners when their life circumstances changed. His owners' work hours were increased and the new residence didn't allow dogs. His owners knew that United Yorkie Rescue would love them, care for them, and find them a wonderful forever home.

There is so much more to know about Bandit. What we do know is that he is too chubby and needs to be on a doggie diet. He needs all his vaccinations, his neuter, and a dental. We know that Bandit is very attached to Junior. Bandit is Junior's real dad and doesn't want to ever be separated from him, therefore they have to be adopted together.

Bandit sure does need a grooming. That will be coming along with his vaccinations, neuter, and dental. Come back soon and see the new and approved Bandit.


To date we've spent $220.62 on Bandit (and Junior)'s vet bills, but with your support we've collected $75 in donations.

I win all the Cutest Dog contests...

Looking for love
Florida
Cody

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

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

UPDATED BIO 01/10/2022: Cody was rescued from a shelter 5 weeks ago after he was picked up as a stray and it is uncertain how long he was in the streets prior to being picked up. It was obvious to his foster parents that no one had ever worked with socializing this sweet boy.

Here's what Cody had to say recently: Hi everyone, I hope you will read what I have to say so you will realize what kind of forever home I will need. Because I was on the streets for what seemed like a really long time, I have some mild anxiety and aggression issues. I love both my foster parents and the other small resident dogs in the home.

My foster parent thinks I will need someone who is very patient and willing to take the time to gain my trust. I do like men, but I prefer to be with a female as my special human. I do not do well with big dogs and young children scare me and bring out my anxiety. I enjoy walks, but would not enjoy being taken to a dog park. I love treats and once I feel safe I love to nap as well. Once I know that my adoptive parents love me, I will be loyal to them and love them right back.

Here's what my ideal home would be:

- A single-family home with a fenced back yard for me to exercise and play in

- No crate for me - my experience at the shelter has caused me to have an extreme fear of being crated.

- NO children under the age of 14 years old.

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


To date we've spent $76.1 on Cody's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

THANK YOU TO JUNIOR'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Mary Corbin, Sandy Pagnotta

UPDATED BIO 1/17/22: Junior is Bandit's 2-year-old son and weighs a too thin 5 pounds. A more appropriate weight would be 6 pounds. This tiny little guy is so sweet and cute.

Bandit & Junior are a bonded pair and must be adopted together. Junior is with his dad at all times and he becomes unhappy if he cannot be where his dad is.

MEET LOUIE! Louie is approximately 11 years old and weighs 13.4 pounds. This guy is one sweet pup. Louie is being fostered in Bradenton, FL. Dogs being fostered in Florida must be adopted within the State of Florida.

THANK YOU TO LOUIE'S FACEBOOK DONORS!

Karen Rabin, Alexa Socha Rowan, Ann Brown Underwood, Karry Rogers, Annette Weeks

Updated Bio 12/07/2021: Louie has been patiently waiting at his foster home for a couple of months now. All he wants for the holidays is a family to call his very own! He promises to be such a good boy. He will work on his house training (he does great most days), and his barking at dogs out on walks. Hes a senior fella with lots of energy for walks and absolutely loves attention and snuggles with his favorite human.

Louie has been in UYR for 3 months now. He was rescued from the streets by Animal Control and taken to the local shelter. This poor little fella was very matted and was either sadly neglected for a long time or on the streets for weeks. He was full of fleas and had a large dangling mass on his lower jaw. The shelter vet surgically removed the horrific infected mass. This poor little fella must have been in so much pain from this severely infected tumor.

Foster mom says that Louie is a very sweet senior who loves attention and loves food even more! Louie is both hearing and vision-impaired but that doesn't hamper his enthusiasm for life. He will take snuggle time anytime and will ask Foster Mom for more if she stops petting him - sweet!

Could your home be the perfect home for Louie to rest his head? He has been through so much pain and suffering in his past and truly deserves a loving forever home this holiday season!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


To date we've spent $1409.85 on Louie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1695 in donations.

Roxie

Roxie is an adorable little 8.7 pound 3 1/2 year old blonde Yorkie Mix. She is being fostered in Vero Beach, FL.

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

THANK YOU TO ROXIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Linda Murphy, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Sandy Pagnotta, Theresa McDivitt, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Allison Triplett, Lisa Kruckow, RaeAnn Wright

THANK YOU TO THOSE WHO DONATED TOWARD ROXIE'S EXPENSES VIA THE BETTY WHITE CHALLENGE!

Lee Filer, JoAnn Portell, Thomas Andreadakis, Lynn Allen, Rebecca Richard, Melinda Bjornson, Melanie Eckert, Donald Bledsoe, Cheryl Diedrick, Cynthia Swan

UPDATED BIO 12/12/201: Roxie has only been in her UYR foster home for 8 days, but its been a very busy 8 days for this sweet little girlie. She was previously put on Craig's List by a former owner who only wanted money for her, and who didn't take into consideration that Roxie needed a loving forever home. A compassionate stranger who saw the posting paid what the owner was asking to save Roxie from possibly going into another undesirable home. She had Roxie altered, vaccinated, and groomed, and kept her for several months to properly socialize her. She then reached out to see if UYR had an available foster home. She is now in her loving foster home where all her medical needs will be addressed.

Foster Mom says Roxie is the sweetest little girl who follows her everywhere she goes. Cuddles are her favorite but she is happy to curl up next to you as well. She is definitely a velcro dog and will need to have at least one stay-at home-parent in her forever home. It appears that Roxie was never socialized very well in her original home where she was crated for hours and hours every day, so it's a little surprising how friendly she is to people. She is gentle with children as long as they are gentle with her; however, because she is a little fragile, she would do best in a home with children 12+ years old.

Here is some wonderful things about Roxie - Foster mom & Roxie visited with a neighbor who has two cats and it was apparent that she had probably never seen a cat, or at least one that is bigger than her. She initially hid behind foster mom, but she soon warmed up and went about exploring the house and ignoring the cats. However, Roxie doesn't seem to care for big dogs at all; even though she is initially very shy with little dogs, she will eventually warm up to them. Roxie also gets along with the resident senior dog well. He ignores her most of the time and that is fine with her. They will lay together sometimes and she lets him lean up against her. Foster mom believes that being an only dog might be her preference, but also feels at this time that Roxie would do well with another well-behaved dog close to her size and age. Roxie is still learning where it is - and is not - ok to do her business. She is no longer going on the tile floor and is using the pee-wee pads instead. She will continue to need positive reinforcement in the house-training area. Roxie loves to eat and is definitely food-motivated, so training treats are very helpful for teaching her proper puppy pee-wee protocol!

And now for the not-so-wonderful news. It was very evident that Roxie had some orthopedic problems once she arrived in UYR. We were told by her surrendering owner that she was bow-legged, which basically means that her legs bowed outward at or below the knee. But it was very noticeable that there is something else going on with Roxie. She can run and jump and it's surprising how fast she can be. She loves to walk but cannot go far before she starts to limp. It is hard to witness because she must be in pain.

During her doggie wellness check, she received the necessary vaccines and radiographs were also taken of her front leg. Her heart and lungs are healthy great news! The radiographs showed some significant arthritis in her elbow. The vet gave her some anti-inflammatories for seven days and suggested joint supplements, which will be started immediately. The vet suggested that it was probably a genetic trait and that it won't get any worse. In other words, she would need to continue to live with this abnormal gait. It was decided that another opinion and further evaluation was needed.

Moving forward, Roxie was taken to a Fitness & Rehab vet for a second opinion, which was the absolute right thing to do for this sweet, young girlie. Her new vet, Dr. Amber, whom she loves and loves her staff as well, gave foster mom a more in-depth assessment of what else is going on besides the arthritis. Roxies right front leg moves too far to the right. Roxie can lay in a very unnatural position that we know is not comfortable for her. This awkward position also puts too much pressure on the left leg with the arthritis. The leg itself is stable, but Dr. Amber suggested a hobble brace which will hold her front legs in place in the hopes that the nerves and muscles that are allowing such an unnatural stance can be corrected.

Roxie also has Grade 2 bilateral luxating patellas. Normally surgery is not required for Grade 2 luxating patella, but in Roxie's case, surgery is recommended since correcting the patellas will give her three stable legs instead of two. She also recommended Adequan, an injectable medicine, for Roxies front left leg to restore and improve her mobility. Adequan Canine is the only FDA-approved osteoarthritis medication that inhibits cartilage loss in the dogs synovial joints. But Adequan is very expensive. Roxie has started with laser treatments to help with pain and inflammation. She will have four more laser treatments over the next two weeks, while she waits for her custom-made hobble brace.

CALLING ALL YORKIE ANGEL DONORS! UYR is committed to giving Roxie, who is only 3-1/2 years old, the pain-free life that she so richly deserves. Please help us help her. Roxies vetting, medications & rehab expenses are expected to be very high, so if her story has touched your heartstrings, please consider making a donation to UYR to help with these expenses so that we can continue to take in medically-needy dogs like Roxie and restore their health.

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING BEFORE APPLYING TO ADOPT ROXIE:

- Roxie will be happy as an only dog, but would also do well in a home with another well-mannered dog close to her age and size. NO BIG DOGS.

- Roxie needs at least one stay-at-home or work-from-home parent.

- Roxie can be adopted into a home with children 12+ years old only.

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

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

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

Kentucky
Peaches

Peaches is a 6 year old yorkie mix girl who weighs 18 pounds and is being fostered near Elizabethtown, KY.

UPDATE 1/16/2022

Peaches has warmed up to her foster family. Initially she would not come out of her kennel, but that only lasted about two days. She interacts with us well, and is learning to play with the other dogs. Peaches loves to walk, and enjoys going in and out the doggie door. We are hoping that she will teach her foster siblings how to go in and out the door. She loves attention and likes to sit with her human. She's not keen on sharing attention. She finally is comfortable with us and is sleeping with us and her foster siblings.

Peaches is still anxious when other people come over. She will either bark or growl at them. She will settle down.

This girl is a bit on the overweight side, so we are working with her on diet and exercise. She is heavy, especially when you pick her up.

Peaches is a sweet girl with lots of love to give! She loves attention and loves to kiss her human with affection.

Initial Bio 12/17/21

Peaches has just came into rescue. We do know that she suffers from anxiety and will need to be updated in shots, bloodwork, etc. Stay tuned as we get to know this sweetie.


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

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

THANK YOU TO PHOEBE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Geoffrey Washington, Nicole Lane, Terri Johnson, Geoffrey Washington

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

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


To date we've spent $270.23 on Phoebe's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $265 in donations.

THANK YOU TO THOSE WHO DONATED TOWARD CHEWBACCA'S EXPENSES VIA THE BETTY WHITE CHALLENGE!

Michael Uricek

1/6/22 Initial Bio: My name is Chewbacca, Chewy for short. Im brand new to United Yorkie Rescue; my foster mom picked me recently. Id been living with a very nice family and a great mom who took extra-special care of me, but its time now for me to find my fur-ever home as she could not keep me.

I will list my qualifications for you in case you are interested: I am very friendly. I am around 7 years old, but were not sure because Im a dog and we dont use calendars. I think its important to be fit, so I love to snack on raw carrots and apple slices. I am also super cute (even though dogs dont use calendars, we do like mirrors), and I look very healthy, except I have some yucky teeth. But dont let that stop you, because my new foster mom says that we are going to get this thing called a "dental" (I hope that means I will get steak). Shes also getting me this other thing called a "check-up," so Ill have to get back to you on that. I am also VERY cuddly. If you sit down, I will sit on you to keep you warm, and if you get up, I will follow you around the house to make sure that you do not get abducted. I also think its important to have a clean face, so I will lick you in the face, even if you dont seem to like it. And I like EVERYONE, other dogs, cats, people, even small people (but my foster mom says not too small because Im so small). To prove how friendly I am, my foster brothers swarmed me as soon as I got in the house (I told you I was irresistible) and it didnt bother me ONE bit. It also didnt bother me that they stuck their heads into MY food bowl (that bothers some dogs). Oh, one other thing I should probably mention is that my foster mom says that we are working on this thing called potty training. Anyway, thats it for now. Ill get back to you soon after we do that check-up thing. I hope they have steak!

Karen Perkins, Patricia Ashton, Sarah Saurman, Andrea Milo

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

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

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

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

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

Linda Sancliffe

Updated Bio 1/7/22

Angel went to the specialist and had her leg x-rayed by them and it was determined there was too much scar tissue and poor healing blood flow to promote healing. The leg had been broken for almost 6 months and she had no feeling in the leg where the break was. The Dogtor determined her other leg was in great shape and it would be in her best interest to go ahead and have her injured leg amputated. That was done on this past Wednesday, January 5th. Angel Blessings was a Trooper! She also had a dental that day and lost a total of 13 teeth. Angel has been doing well and wears a pillow cone to keep her from licking at her stitches. Her mouth has absorbable stitches but her leg stitches will come out in a couple of weeks. Angel is the sweetest girl and we are happy that she is on the road to recovery. She walks on 3 legs just fine, she was already used to not using the leg that is now gone so she doesn't seem to be bothered by it. Next we will be working on getting her bonded mate Buddy Elf up to date on his vet care and then when everyone is all healed up they can be adopted.

Initial Bio 12/17/21

Angel came into rescue to get her leg seen by a specialist to see if her fracture in her right rear leg can be surgically repaired. The leg has been broke since about 5 months ago and due to another accident was hurt again in the same leg causing the fracture not to heal at all. She will be seeing the specialist on the 29th of December. In the meantime she has seen the Doctor and is now up to date on all shots and she is fecal and heart worm negative. She has been microchipped and is already spayed. We do know when she is well enough she will need a dental. Buddy Elf was surrendered with her as the previous owner could not bear to separate them due to their special bond. Buddy will see the Dogtor after the Christmas Holidays.

10/27/2021

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

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

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

Jo-Jo

Jo-Jo is an adorable 12-pound male yorkie who is 5 years old and is being fostered near Murfreesboro, TN

Initial Bio 01-07-2022

Jo-Jo was surrendered to UYR after his previous owners were unable to care for him due to health reasons. Jo-Jo has been in the care of their local veterinarian since December 15, 2021. Jo-Jo spent many weeks boarded in a crate. The previous owners did the right thing for this sweet, healthy boy and he is now up for adoption.

Jo-Jo is up to date on his heartworm prevention along with his necessary vaccinations, microchipped and is neutered. Since he has been with his new foster family, he is adjusting to living with 3 others older yorkies after being an only pet for the last 5 years. His foster parents are excited to see Jo-Jos emerging personality. When he first arrived at his new foster home, he was very energetic and gave his foster parents lots of hugs and kisses. He was a little intimidated, but also excited, to play in the fenced backyard with his new siblings for the first time. He enjoyed running and playing all around and finding spots to potty. He loves to play with his foster siblings toys. Jo-Jo loves his food and is always happy with the opportunity for yummy treats. He likes to cuddle and take naps on the couch with his foster dad and his foster siblings. Jo-Jo loves human interaction and giving tons of kisses to his foster family.

His foster parents are working on Jo-Jos confidence walking on a leash as well as making sure he is doing his business outside. He is doing really great so far but will need reinforcement in his adoptive home as well! Jo-Jo is ready for more love and attention. He is SUPER sweet boy who needs a wonderful forever home. If you are interested in adopting this amazing boy, please contact his foster dad at jam4bama@unitedyorkierescue.org for more information or submit an adoption application.

IMPORTANT DETAILS TO CONSIDER BEFORE APPLYING FOR JO-JO:

Because Jo-Jo is not used to living with young children, it is unclear how he would adjust to living with small children.

Jo-Jo is young and energetic and has trouble getting his much older foster siblings to play with him as they rather sleep and stay warm in bed HAHA! If he were to have a permanent sibling, he would need to have a sibling close to his age or one that doesnt mind playing fetch or sharing his toys.

Jo-Jo has been an only pet his entire life and is still getting used to living with other dogs. His foster parents are closely monitoring his demeanor and interaction with his foster siblings and will have more information on his adjustment in the days to come.


To date we've spent $218.43 on Jo-Jo's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $32.43 in donations.
Please donate!

THANK YOU TO ROCKY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

THANK YOU TO ROCKY'S FACEBOOK DONORS!

Karry Rogers, DeeKevin Powell, Lise Ewald Hull, Joelle Hutchings, Janet Sinclair, Alexa Socha Rowan, Kay Marzoni-Miller, Chris Ahern, Pamela Dover

Updated Bio 12/26/21:

Rocky went to see the Doggie Cardiologist and had his Echocardiogram done. The test showed that Rocky has Chronic Degenerative Valve Disease Stage C. To explain his condition as some dogs age, one or more of the four valves in the heart become thickened. As they become thickened they no longer close properly and this allows for the blood to leak backwards across the valve which is called regurgitation. This regurgitation backwards is what causes the murmur we hear when listened to. Over time, as the blood leaks backwards, it can cause dilation or enlargement of the heart chambers. When the heart can no longer compensate they can then go into congestive heart failure. This is an acquired heart disease. That is, it is not present at birth, but instead occurs as an aging change. Some breeds can develop this condition at a relatively young age like Mr. Rocky. Stage C means that Rocky has been in congestive heart failure. Rocky can be managed with medications. He is currently on 3 meds. Rocky is a happy boy who enjoys life and loves to play, explore outside be with other dogs. He is super smart. The heart Dr. said that with he proper precautions with anesthesia that Rocky can be neutered and have a dental. So we will be talking to the Dogtor soon about that. He will also have his bloodwork rechecked to make sure the medications arent affecting his kidneys. Rocky came into rescue from a shelter. Even though he may not live a long life (the average prognosis with this condition is 18-24months), he still has so much love to give and needs a home of his very own. If you feel you can love him and give him the care he needs email foster mom. If your able to donate to his care click on the paypal button underneath. Thank you

Updated Bio 10/31/21

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

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

1/19/22 Initial Bio: Allie was found as a stray here in the DFW area. Look at this face... she is just precious and so full of love! She appears to have been a family dog at some point - she's very well mannered and house trained. Allie prefers to be front and center with the family and has a sweet bond recently noted towards our new baby. With couches and beds around, she prefers to sleep on the floor under her foster babys bassinet than up on the bed. She does get nervous around our 2yr old however, as he is quite loud and very much into playing out loud. Therefore, older children or children with a quiet household may be acceptable as adopters. She does require slow introductions to high energy dogs as she let's one of her fur-siblings know that and that she should just chill. Allie gets along with most of the dogs, but since she isn't a fan of an alpha female and is sometimes food driven, it may be best if she was the one and only.

Allie is just a sweetheart and is receiving her vetting this week. She's s ready to cuddle with her human, and she is so ready to be spoiled with her future adopters. I forgot to mention, Allie does cry if she cannot find you! She deserves to feel love and security that she somehow lost along the way to us!

If you feel you have the perfect home for this baby girl, please complete the application below or email foster mom and dad at uyrfoster23@gmail.com.

Benjamin

Meet Benjamin, a 6 year old, 6 lb Yorkie boy being fostered in Austin, TX. Only Texas applicants will be considered.

THANK YOU TO BENJAMIN'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Lyn Symms, Susan Reeves, Lyn Symms, Karen Nimmo

Pupdate 12/16/21:

Benjamin's neuter and dental went well! His teeth were in such bad shape he was only able to keep two, but now that all the rotten teeth are out he's feeling so much better and enjoying his meals a lot more!! He recovered quickly from the neuter surgery and is as energetic as ever.

Benjamin is becoming more confident and walking better on leash with practice. He's learned the joy of chasing squirrels and cats when out for a walk, and loves meeting neighbor dogs. But his favorite thing is still snuggles and belly rubs.

Unfortunately he's still a pretty anxious guy, especially when his foster mom has to leave him alone to run an errand. We had a first session with a behavioral specialist today who says with hard work and patience we can address some of that anxiety and get him feeling happy and healthy. We're hoping over the next few weeks we can build healthy new habits to replace some of the anxious barking.

Benjamin is looking for a home where he can get lots of love and snuggles, and spend lots of time with his humans.

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

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

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

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

To date we've spent $1042.69 on Benjamin's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $250 in donations.

1/20/22 Initial Bio: This precious 11wk old baby came to United Yorkie Rescue as an owner surrender. Buttercup was suffering from aspiration pneumonia and needed immediate critical care in the DFW area.

She spent 4 days in the ICU and then was transferred to our awesome vets at Blockhouse Creek. Baby girl spent another week for intermediate care until she was safe enough to return home to foster mom and her other fur-siblings. Needless to say, this baby girl had a little energy to burn first day home but is now settled back in!

Buttercup has a little more time to spend in rescue while she receives her immunizations and her big girl spay before adoption. If you feel you have the perfect forever home to offer this princess, please stay tuned in for when we will be ready to start reviewing applications. We realize we have some precious babies to offer, but we will take you all into consideration.

Initial Bio 12/20/21: One of United Yorkie Rescue's latest pups is this precious baby girl Chloe Belle! This sweet little bundle came into rescue as an owner surrender when she was presented at our amazing vet in the Austin area suffering with a seizure. Fearing the cost of the fix and the fear of loss she was surrendered to their care. Chloe was loved and spoiled rotten by the staff and though under the daily care of one of the techs, she knew Chloe deserved her best forever and they reached out to us.

Chloe Belle is an approximately 5 mth, 2.6 lb ball of fluff. She is all puppy with a love of everything! She loves toys, dogs, cats, children, just life itself. We are currently setup to visit with Internal med so we can try to rule out whether this little baby has a congenital liver shunt. Once we meet, we will have a nuclear scintigraphy to help us get true diagnostics. Once all of that is determined, we will see to a surgical fix and complete her spay. If possible, please consider a donation towards Chloe's medical costs. She's just a baby with many years ahead of her. If you're interested in adoption , please complete an application below. Thank you and bless you!.

12-8-21 Update: Valentino is doing remarkably well. This precious little puppy came into rescue after being found on the sidewalk near death and later that night was seizing with vomiting and diarrhea. He spent some time in medical care and He has had numerous specialty vet visits to help with a diagnosis and to rule out liver shunt. He spent the day with internal med and they were able to rule out liver shunt YES! He maintained a high level of ammonia in his urine for sometime but he has finally turned this all around. They feel that this young puppy had suffered from a very very dangerous heatstroke as it was 103 degrees outside that day. But being a puppy we had to rule out distemper, Parvo, liver shunt and multiple other conditions that sent this baby to the ER. Sweet Valentino will finally have his big boy neuter on the 22nd and will finally be able to join his mommy as an official member of a forever home!!

Please continue to keep this little one in your future prayers for his surgical date. As always, please help support United Yorkie Rescue in our efforts to give these babies the best medical care that they deserve and consider a "Giving" donation at www.uyr.us, Bless you all during this Holiday Season.

9/2/21 Initial bio: Hi everyone! Meet Daniel. Daniel is coming to us from shelter. All we know of his life is he was found lifeless on a sidewalk and brought into the shelter for emergency vet care. Whether it was from him being in the 103 degree heat or an illness, Daniel had 2 seizures that followed. Daniel is estimated to be a young puppy possibly 12 to 15wks, and is very emaciated at 4lbs. We are currently running diagnostics on this baby so please know he is NOT up for adoption at this time. Our goal for now is to get answers to his illness. We ask that you please help us to help him at this time and keep him in your prayers. Donations for Daniel can be made at www.uyr.us. Thank you and bless you!!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


To date we've spent $13883.45 on Davey's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $4840 in donations.

THANK YOU TO THOSE WHO DONATED TOWARD DIXIE'S EXPENSES VIA THE BETTY WHITE CHALLENGE!

Lynda Symms, Lisa Heslop, Ann Bailey

01/04/22 UPDATE: Dixie has completely come out of her shell! What and amazing pup! She is perfectly housetrained, listens well, loves to snuggle, and most of all, PLAY!. Dixie greets foster dad everyday with jumps of joy and then races around the house looking for her favorite toy to play. She enjoys wrestling with her stuffed doggie and playing tug of war. She will chase down any toy if thrown and especially loves to be chased around while holding a toy in her mouth. She has an amazing amount of energy and spunk for an 11 year old pup. The years of having bladder stones may have slowed her down, but she is sure making up for it now.

Dixie will do best in an active home. She loves going for walks and even enjoys a ride in the car. She was raised with children and would be ideal in a home with older children that would play with her. She is an absolute sweetheart that foster mom and dad say is so special. Personalities like Dixie's do not come around often. Foster mom and dad frequently say she is the best dog ever. If you feel you'd like to give a super special dog an exciting forever home, please fill out an application using the link below.

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

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

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


To date we've spent $3172.64 on Dixie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $455 in donations.

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

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

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

Our Cutie, Griff!

Wanna Play??
Texas
Griff

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

THANK YOU TO GRIFF'S RESCUE ANGELS!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Please click the application below to apply for this angel or email his foster parents at uyr.yorkies4life@gmail.com.

Joey
Texas
Joey aka Savage

Meet Joey. Joey is a 7-month-old who weighs 6 lbs. Joey is being fostered near Euless, TX.

INITIAL BIO: 06/08/21. Meet precious United Yorkie Rescue Joey! This little boy is absolutely adorable, and only 7 months old! He is sweet as can be and full of kisses to give!! Needless to say, he has lots of puppy energy. Joey loves to play with his toys so much that he has learned to play toss and catch by himself . He truly loves going to the park where he meets lots of friends and will run and play with other babies. He also loves to cuddle with foster mom and loves his belly rubs. He gets along with his fursibling Lulu, and drives her nuts wanting to play lol. Lulu is a Yorkie Diva so it's on her time.

Joey is still in the process of potty training. He wears a belly band to help not to potty on the floor, but is very good about going outside and knows what to do. He is smart and learning very fast. Joey will have his vetting done on June 15 along with a neuter, then will soon be ready for his furever home! He would be great with a family that is very active as an only dog or with a family that has another dog around his age, where the two of them can play together.

Please, if you feel you have that home, submit your application below or email foster mom at yorkiefamous88@gmail.com with questions.

Updated Bio 1/11/22

Aloha everyone!!! I'm not in Hawaii but my foster mom gave me a Hawaiian name ~ KeKoa ~ which means "Warrior" in Hawaiian. My foster mom says that name definitely fits me perfectly. I'm a little old man who was frail when found but I've been fattened up a little which helped me get through my stage 4 dental just perfectly with no complications. I'm blind but I'm getting around very well. My foster brothers and sisters try to steal food but now that I'm feeling better I'm giving them a run for their money. I have an eye appointment with a specialist after Christmas. My left eye has a possible rupture and the infection I have is not going away. I sleep most of the time and am so happy I'm no longer roaming the streets in Washington DC. I am not house trained and I'm under foot a lot and need someone who has experience with a blind, partially deaf dog. I also have severe arthritis in my back so I walk a little funny and cannot go up and down stairs. I'm a super loving old man that is looking for my forever home.

Initial Bio 10/22/21:

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


To date we've spent $1701.55 on KeKoa's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $550 in donations.

Bella
Wisconsin
Bella WI

Meet Bella, a precious 12 year old little Yorkie girl who is being fostered in Madison, WI. Bella must be adopted within a 100 mile radius.

THANK YOU TO BELLA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Drew Henderson, Barbara Burgess

THANK YOU TO THOSE WHO DONATED TO BELLA'S EXPENSES VIA THE BETTY WHITE CHALLENGE!

Donna Leggett, Diane Carter, Diane Synder, Alexandra Lamer

12/11/21 - Bella is scheduled for a dental procedure on December 14th. Her skin issues seem to be improving with a change of diet. Her foster mom says she coming out of her shell and has opened up and has become more playful.

Bella's foster mom has determined that Bella does not like to travel long distances, and seems anxious in a crate.

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


To date we've spent $627.8 on Bella WI's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $420 in donations.
