Alabama
Bucky

MEET BUCKY. He is a sweet male yorkie who is only 3 years old and weighs 13 lbs. Bucky is being fostered in Vestavia Hills, AL.

Bucky must be adopted within a 150 mile radius of his foster home. Please consider this before applying for him.

UPDATED BIO 09/15/2021: Bucky has been in his foster home for almost 10 days now. He was a very beloved dog in his former owner's home where he was spoiled and pampered, but due to circumstances beyond the owner's control, she could no longer care for Bucky. She contacted UYR and that's how he became a UYR foster dog.

Foster mom reports that Bucky is such a sweetheart and is very interested in his doggie playmates in the foster home, even though he was an only dog in his former home. BONUS! Bucky is house-trained and also trained on pee-pee pads which he has not yet used in his foster home. He loves following the resident dogs outside and really enjoys his big fenced-in yard.

Bucky LOVES the outdoors and Foster Mom says he is a big-time lap baby and loves to give kisses - lots of them! He loves everyone he meets and has adjusted well to his foster home. Bucky has had his well-dog-visit and it was discovered that he did have a bad ear infection; he was put on a course of medication which has been completed. We initially thought Bucky may be hearing-impaired; however, once he had completed the ear medication, he can hear just fine - hooray! Bucky is a young dog and playful - he especialy loves playing with the squeaky toy and a ball. What a little character he is!

INITIAL BIO 09/06/2021: Bucky has just arrived in his UYR foster home. He was a very beloved dog in his owner's home where he was spoiled and pampered, but due to circumstances beyond the owner's control, she could no longer care for Bucky. She contacted UYR and of course we said that we would take him.

Bucky is a real sweetheart who hasn't been around other dogs in his home, but his former owner feels he will love having some doggie playmates. He is very interested in playing with the kitty cat, but sadly the kitty has decided that she just doesn't need a doggie companion. Bucky loves the outdoors and Foster Mom says he is a big-time kisser. He loves everyone he meets. Bucky will adjust well to his foster home and once he has his well-dog-visit, he will be ready for adoption. There is so much more to know about Bucky, so please stay tuned for more information as his foster mom gets to know him better.


To date we've spent $256.85 on Bucky's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $25 in donations.

Arkansas
Levi

Meet the sweetest boy Levi. He is a Yorkie who weighs 8 pounds and is approximately 10 years old. He is being fostered in Bryant, Arkansas.

THANK YOU TO LEVI'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Barbara Burgess, Sandy Pagnotta, Irene and Peter Havas, Wendy Fuhrmaneck

UPDATE ON LEVI 9-10-2021.

Lucky little Levi has moved to the Land of Opportunity in Arkansas. And that's just what he is looking for, an opportunity to be someone's lovin' little boy. He is being fostered in Bryant, AR, just outside Little Rock. Levi's birthday is March 8, 2011, making in a very young 10 years old. Levi lost an eye in his younger years, before coming into rescue, but unless you look for it, you would never even know. He is a confident little man and walks with a swagger, giving him a wiggle when he walks. Levi is as cute and full of himself as he can be, and a delight to get to know. He is mostly housebroken and learns very quickly. He loves to lay on the couch beside you or be in the room close to you. He would love to sleep with you and snuggle, but he is just as happy sleeping in his own bed beside yours. He does not like being confined to a play pen. Levi has been neutered, has his microchip, had a dental, and is up to date on all his inoculations. He does however, have a heart problem and is on daily medication. The cost of his medication comes out to just about $2.50 a day, and that's a small price to keep this little Prince healthy, so he can be yours for years to come.

Update 07/17/2021

Levi is a senior dog who is adorable and very friendly. He says being a senior dog doesnt hold him back and he would love for you to take a chance on him. He has plenty of love still to give. He loves attention and will go with you anywhere. He only has one eye, a few years ago he lost an eye due to injury but this does not hold him back he gets around very well. He is up to date on all vaccinations and no dental needed because this little man has no teeth. This boy loves to eat, he can eat anything. His foster family lovingly gave him the nickname piglet, sometimes he snorts and eats like a little pig. Snuggling under the covers his his favorite pastime. He can be vocal when trying to get your attentions he's not spoiled or anything(LOL). He does have an enlarged heart that is being treated with medication. He takes pimobendan, enalapril, pancreazyme, and furosemide. He is doing very well on these medications. Levi would do best in a quiet home where he can be the center of attention and you could be with him most of the time. He gets along with other dogs. You could ask for a better dog. If you think your home could be his forever home, please complete an application. If you feel let to assist with his care all donations are greatly appreciated.

Update 05/17/2021

Levi is doing well in his foster home. He is up to date on all vaccinations and no dental needed this little man has no teeth. This doen't hold him back he loves to eat. He can eat dry and wet dog food along with any treats you have to give him. He loves to snuggle with you. He can be very vocal when trying to get your attention. He is somewhat potty trained if given the opportunity to go out frequently. When we were at the Dogtor it was discovered that Levi has an enlarged heart. So he has been started on medication for his heart. If you have a special place in your heart for those little old fellows that need a little extra love an attention Levi is your guy. He gives so much love to everyone he is in contact with.... Levi would do best in a quiet home where he can be the center of attention. If you think your home could be his forever home please complete an applications. If you feel led to assist with his medical care any donations would be greatly appreciated.

Initial Bio 03/10/2021

Levi arrived with COVID hair and nails. He is adorable and very friendly he loves attention and will go with you anywhere. He wants to be by your side always. We did have to shave his body but was able to save some of the hair around his face... He would do best in a home where someone could be with him most of the time. He gets along great with other dogs. He is lost one eyes a few years ago due to injury however he gets around very well. He will be seeing the Dogtor very soon to be updated on vaccines and he will need to be neutered. Any donations to his care is appreciated.

Mr. Midas

Mr. Midas is a 10 year old (estimated) Yorkie who weighs 9.4 pounds and being fostered in Arkansas

THANK YOU TO MR. MIDAS' RESCUE ANGELS!

Jennifer Bullington

Updated bio 9/12/21

MEET MR. MIDAS! Like his namesake, he is as good as gold. He is being fostered in Bryant, AR, next door to Little Rock. Mr. Midas recently came into our rescue, and he is about as good as it gets. His birthday is August 23, 2011, making him 10 years young and in excellent health.. He is up to date on his shots, and will be microchipped on September 14th, with his dental cleaning done shortly after. He weighs about 10 pounds. He will be ready to be someone's perfect companion. He is compliant, not a barker, AND as an added bonus, he is already housebroken! It took him 3 days after arriving at his foster home to learn where the out potty door was and to sit by it patiently until you see him. If you do not react soon enough, he gives a soft, gentle little bark to make you notice he needs to go out. All of this is really remarkable for this boy, as he is vision impaired. But once he learns his way around, you would never even know it. He is exceptionally smart and as sweet and good natured as they come. He is the ultimate companion dog, as he will lay by your chair or ask to be helped up onto the couch. Are you the one he is waiting for? He will be ready to roll by the later part of September, right after his dental procedure. Fill out an application today at www.unitedyorkierescue.org, Look for him under Looking for Love. Mr. Midas is definitely looking for love!

Initial Bio 9/6/21

Mr. Midas was found as a stray and was taken to a shelter. The shelter reached out to United Yorkie Rescue to help this sweet, calm senior find him the best home ever. Stay tuned as we find out more about him and if you have any questions email his foster mom. Thank you

Chauncey
California
Chauncey

Meet sweet Chauncey, a 4 pound, 12 year old Yorkie boy being fostered in Fullerton, CA. Only Southern CA applicants will be considered.

THANK YOU TO CHAUNCEY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


To date we've spent $866.14 on Chauncey's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $801.23 in donations.

Perry

Meet Perry, an 8 year old, 6 pound Yorkie boy who is being fostered in Diamond Bar, CA.Now Accepting Applications (Southern California Only)

THANK YOU TO PERRY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Penny Cooper, Barbara Burgess, John Chang, Nance Woodward, Ellen Chokreff, Emily Nessler, Elaine Jesmer, Cheryl Austel, Elba Short, Anita Strawser, Jeri O'Donnell, Natalie Vinnichenko, Patricia Burgos, Julie Bremser, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Jayne Newell, Krystal Kraig, Sandy Pagnotta, Kathryn Quinn, Carol Nelson, Karen Patterson, Lauren Radencic, Warren Wong, Cheryl Scrupski, Phyllis Herrell, Lauren Satterfield, Wendy Henry, Angie Cagle, Angie Orrego, Sandy Pagnotta, Sherry Johnson-Traver, Salpi Devlin, Penny Cooper, Amy Morgan

9/7/21 UPDATE: Hello hello! My name is Perry and I have been rescued and fostered by the UNITED YORKIE RESCUE for almost 3 months now. I have been given a lot of love and care and I no longer have a runny nose all the time! I have grown a lot in the past few months, weighing 6 pounds now. Being in a home is definitely different, but I have found new joy in playing with toys and my playmate, Chewie. I sometimes try to steal his toys away from him and we often play tug-of-war. I am now housetrained and self sufficient, I learned to use the doggie door to go do my business outside and would come back in on my own. It is still a bit tough for me to warm up to new faces and smells and I am a bit protective of my family. I learned how to give little kisses on my foster familys chins and stretch out as far as possible when getting pets and belly rubs. I love to steal all of the blankets in the house because I love them so much! Even though I am recovering well, my blinded eye is giving me some trouble and I am in need of antibiotics/anti-inflammatory. I may need surgery to remove my bad eye. If you are able to do so, I would really appreciate help with my vetting expenses! Thank you and puppy kisses, Perry.

7-14-21 UPDATE: After living with his family for 2 weeks, Perry has warmed up to people and his personality has started to surface. Perry is very calm, doesnt bark much, and enjoys being in a peaceful environment. On occasion he will give kisses on the face. Perry loves to prance and follow his person from room to room. Perry is also learning to play, wag his tail, and pull pillows down from the sofa. Because Perry is not yet neutered, he is wearing a belly band, but he is doing well house training when taken out regularly. He is very clever too because he can wiggle and twist his way out of the belly band when he wants some relief especially when you are not looking. Perry has a lovable, dominant personality; he guards his owner, his food, and his large stuffed animals. With regular soothing baths and good nutrition, Perrys bald spots are recovering and his hair has started to shine and grow back. He has also found comfort in sleeping through the night in his own dedicated bed.

Perry is due for an extensive dental procedure on July 16th to help with his congestion and breathing. Perry is also due for a neuter procedure shortly after the dental appointment. As soon as Perry is neutered, marking in the house will subside, and he will not need to wear his belly band. We look forward to seeing him continue to thrive as he gets the medical attention he needs thanks to our UYR supporters.

7-3-21 Initial Bio: What a Difference a Day Makes!!! Code Red in a So Cal Shelter to Recovery Road in 24 Hours! Sweet as Sugar and Handsome as they Come!!

Hi Everyone Diane & Linh (Perrys Foster Mom) from United Yorkie Rescue here in Southern California with an update. Sweet, and I MEAN SWEET, tiny Perry was pulled from the shelter at 3PM yesterday. It was so very sad to see him unbathed, infested with fleas, struggling to breathe from severe congestion, a distended stomach and injured eye. Our hearts were broken to know that he had been in a cage, suffering for over two weeks and nothing had been done to bring him relief. Perrys UYR Foster Mom Linh and her daughter took him home, gave him a nice bath, fed him and then stayed up with him all night concerned and monitoring his breathing until we met at the Animal Hospital this morning at 9AM and handed Perry over to the vet techs so his breathing could be closely monitored until he could be seen and evaluated by Dr. D.

We requested extensive blood work, chest/stomach x-rays a sonogram, examinations of both eyes, an evaluation of his skin infection and a dental evaluation. We were all expecting very bad news held our breath until 1PM when we were finally called in for a consultation. We were overjoyed with the initial results of the evaluation (were still awaiting bloodwork)some of us to the point of tears.

Perrys breathing issues may be caused by an infection, or by dental issues. It is also suspected that he may have an elongated soft pallet that might be complicating the situation. In addition, his skin infection is due to an allergic reaction to flea infestation. Perrys dull, brassy coat and bald spots will heal completely with proper nutrition and supplements, as well as improved hygiene. It seems that his left eye was injured quite some time ago and is blind. He does see relatively well out of his right eye. Although we still have to receive the results of the bloodwork, we are cautiously optimistic that all of little Perrys medical can be addressed and resolved. We collectively exhaled in a unified sigh of relief --- hugging each other in celebration!

Perry has a very sweet disposition and loves to be held by his foster mama and daddy. He has been very well behaved and seems just grateful for human contact, love, respect and freedom. He does have a bit of a startle reaction, but were certain its just because hes traumatized from all of the noise and shelter chaos. Because Perry is such a beautiful little guy that is not neutered, we suspect that he was used as a breeding stud.

It is apparent that Perry has already forged an attachment to Linhs family (including her children). Were all looking forward with enthusiasm to Linhs updates as Perry decompresses and we begin to learn who he really is! Please check back for updates on this beautiful and sweet little soul who was gently placed down on the road to recovery and a new chapter of love, respect, kindness, safety and health thanks to the amazing team at UYR.


To date we've spent $1650.09 on Perry's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1313.69 in donations.

UPDATED BIO 08/10/2021: Ava arrived with a history of seizure-like episodes, thought to be related to a potential liver shunt. Her preliminary testing seemed to point us in that direction, so she was started on 2 medications and a prescription food diet, which appeared to stop the seizures. So much so, that it was as if there wasnt anything wrong with her. Until one day when she accidentally went without her midday dose of medicine, and was back to her seizure-like activity within 8 hours.

UYR felt that an abdominal ultrasound would give us some answers, and the results did not show any signs of a liver shunt, but also could not entirely rule one out because her liver looked a little bit small. It was then decided that since she needed to be spayed, we would also do an exploratory laparotomy, which entailed a much larger incision, along with a liver biopsy. The liver biopsy was also inconclusive.

The next step in our search for answers was to do a CT scan of her abdomen to see if there was something deeper going on with her liver; however, that came back okay, too. It seems Ava may have Hepatic Microvascular Dysplasia or MVD. This is often an inherited abnormality of the liver. In affected dogs, the microscopic blood vessels within the liver are underdeveloped or absent. This decreases blood flow within the liver, causing atrophy (a decrease in size) of the liver and its cells. If this is truly what Ava has. There are no surgical treatments for MVD, but it is able to be managed with the proper diet and consistent veterinary care with annual or bi-annual veterinary visits. Dogs with the condition are successfully managed medically and treatment is based on the severity of the condition. In some dogs, no treatment is needed. The mainstay of medical management is to reduce the amount of protein in the diet.

Under the guidance of the veterinary internal medicine specialist, we are going to slowly cut back on her medications, and see how she does. This will be a slow process because we need to take it slowly, one medication and one dose at a time. She is currently on two meds 3x a day, not including her prescription food, which would make her current treatment consisting of three things.

Now, if over time, Ava is able to come off of her two meds and prescription food without any issues, that would be optimal. However, if she does continue to have episodes off of her medication, we will need to do further testing to find out what is wrong with her. This may very well mean getting an MRI of her brain, to see if it is neurological. Our current plan is to continue to slowly reduce her meds and closely monitor her.

However, as you can imagine, all this testing, surgery and medications has cost UYR a very large amount of money, and we still need your donations, especially with the potential of more intensive testing. Not just to continue to help Ava, but to allow us to help other little doggies who also need us. With all the unrecovered expenses we have incurred with Ava, weve had to limit the number of other dogs we can help, and that is not good. Not to mention the fact that Ava may need an MRI.

Wont you please consider donating to Avas care and expenses so we can continue her ongoing treatment, as well as continue to help others who are in need? Any little bit you can contribute will help. So, if you find it in your heart to help, please click on the donate button under Avas bio and donate whatever you can.

UPDATED BIO 07/17/2021: Ava was surrendered to United Yorkie Rescue when she began having seizure-like episodes that couldnt be diagnosed, and her family could no longer afford to do further testing to find out what was wrong with her. Ava is a typical happy, active loving puppy who deserved a fair chance at life. And that is what UYR is committed to giving her.

Avas current treatment (medication) for the past four months covered such a wide variety of possible medical conditions, and we have been diligently trying to pinpoint exactly what is going on with her. Ava had her B-I-G surgery on July 12 she was spayed and an examination and biopsy were done of her liver. The biopsy required making an incision that encompassed her whole belly and up into her chest. She tolerated the surgery well, and has done very well post-op, so they let her come home the next day (with a LOT of costly medicine).

Unfortunately, the surgery only revealed that Ava did not appear to have any visible liver shunts, but she may have one or more deeper inside her liver. The liver biopsy showed that there is an abnormality in Avas liver. In order to know what this is and to treat and hopefully correct it, the surgeon said we will need to get a CT Angiogram with Contrast. That can easily cost $2,500 or more. It is the only way to know what there is in her liver. It is possible that Ava may have a liver condition called HMD (Hepatic Microvascular Dysplasia) which is an inherited abnormality of the liver. In affected dogs, the microscopic blood vessels within the liver are underdeveloped or absent, which decreases blood flow in the liver. The surgeon recommended that a CT Angiogram of the liver could potentially provide some answers to how to proceed with Avas care. This is a simple noninvasive procedure for the evaluation of the hepatic vasculature.

Going forward - the plan at this time is to schedule the CT Angiogram and continue doing what weve been doing thus far (very costly prescription diet, and expensive medication) three times a day. We owe it to Ava to find out what is going on with this sweet puppy. The costs of her surgery on 07/12 was under the estimate @ $1,200. But the estimated cost of the Angiogram is $2,500. We now need donations more than ever to be able to proceed and help Ava to have a healthy life.

If Avas story has pulled at your heartstrings, please consider a donation to UYR in Avas name so that we can get her the medical intervention she so desperately deserves and also so that we can continue to help other little needy dogs like Ava. We are appealing to our wonderful followers, former adopters and yorkie lovers to ask for monetary contributions. We still have a long way to go to find some answers, but we desperately need the help of our yorkie community in order to do so.

UPDATED BIO 07/01/2021: Ava was surrendered to United Yorkie Rescue when she started having seizure-like episodes that couldn't be diagnosed, and her family could no longer afford to do further testing to find out what was wrong with her. To hear Ava's foster mom describe Ava's Antics, you would just love this little girl. She is a typical happy, active loving puppy who deserves a fair chance at life. To see Ava run and play the way she does, you would never know anything was wrong with her -- as long as she receives her medications three times a day. Currently the treatment (medication) covers such a wide variety of possible medical conditions, and we have been diligently trying to pinpoint exactly what is going on with Ava. We still have a long way to go to find some answers, but we desperately need the help of our yorkie community in order to do so. PLEASE SEE AVA'S YOUTUBE VIDEO and consider making a donation to UYR to help pay her upcoming expenses. VIEW HER YOUTUBE VIDEO HERE: https://youtu.be/75QkGwBulxs

Ava is still a very young puppy, and United Yorkie Rescue didn't want to try major surgery as the first line of treatment until we had more answers that the surgery considered would completely resolve her issues. So we opted to run diagnostic testing on Ava first which was very expensive ($1,192.60). Unfortunately, this testing didn't reveal or specifically diagnose exactly what is causing our sweet Ava to have these medical episodes.

Ava is currently on two expensive medications and a prescription dog food. One medication treats seizures and the other treats liver abnormalities. It is possible that her liver issue, which was initially thought to be a portosystemic liver shunt (PSS) or hepatic microvascular dysplasia (HMD) could potentially be causing toxins to go to her brain and cause her to have seizures. It is also conceivable that she has other liver abnormalities that may cause similar symptoms. Another probability is that Ava could have more than one separate medical conditions, one affecting her liver and the other affecting her brain (epilepsy, brain tumor, etc.). These are definitely very scary words to be using for such a happy, active, sweet little girl who loves to do all the things puppies love to do.

Fast forward to the present, and it is now approaching the time for Ava to have an exploratory surgery to hopefully find and repair what is causing these medical conditions. Her tentative surgery is scheduled for 07/12. And that is why we must come to our wonderful followers, former adopters and yorkie lovers to ask for monetary contributions. The surgery that Ava needs which will give us some answers is a liver biopsy, and this is very expensive. Estimates for the liver shunt or liver biopsy and a spay will be approximately an additional $2,800.00 in vetting expenses. Ava desperately needs this surgery as soon as possible, and we are reaching out to our yorkie angels if Ava's story has pulled at your heartstrings, please consider a donation to UYR in Ava's name so that we can get her the medical intervention she so desperately deserves. It will help us so that we can continue to help other little needy dogs like Ava. PLEASE SEE AVA'S YOUTUBE VIDEO and consider making a donation to UYR to help pay her upcoming expenses.

UPDATED BIO 05/05/2021: Ava Simone has been in her UYR foster home for 8 weeks now. She was surrendered by her previous owner in California and our UYR flight angel flew her to Florida so that we can assess her health and get her to a specialist. We are uncertain at this time about what may be going on with sweet puppy Ava. Her symptoms lead us to believe she may have a liver shunt or it could be something else. Ava was having occasional seizures, sometimes a few minutes of blindness, and at times she had ataxia, which is an abnormal gait which causes her to be unsteady on her feet.

Fast forward from her last update of 04/05/2021 Ava saw the specialist on 04/27/2021 to have a bile acid test to help rule out a liver shunt. The good news is that her tests all came back normal, but the not-so-good news is that we still have some hurdles to go through, in order to see what is causing her seizures. A plan was formulated to slowly wean her off the 3 medications she is currently taking one at a time. If she does well after all medications are weaned off, then she will slowly transition from her RX food to a regular dog food. This could potentially take up to 4 months as we need to proceed very slowly.

The other good news is that Ava continues to reveal what a sweetheart she is, and what her needs will be in her furever home. Ava is a typical high-energy puppy, and her foster mom believes she will continue to be even as an adult. She loves, loves, loves to play with her foster sibling until she cant play anymore. She is also proving to be a very smart little girl. Her current weight is holding steady at 6.5 lbs, so we do not think she will get any bigger. Ava does have pretty serious separation anxiety, and will chew on things when she is left alone. Lucky for Ava, she is so cute and so sweet, that its hard to get mad at her!

Because of Avas young age, she continues to grow into her own personality, and we learn more about what a perfect home would be for her every day. In the meantime, because of the potential of further testing, we need any donations we can get so we can continue help Ava. If Avas story has pulled at your heartstrings, please consider donating to her future medical expenses so that UYR can continue to help other little medically-needy dogs like Ava.

PLEASE READ BEFORE APPLYING FOR AVA SIMONE: Due to the fact that Ava will not be ready to go to her forever home for at least 3-4 more months, our Adoption Apps Team will be holding all adoption applications until we get through this period of slowly weaning her off her meds and RX food.

Ava was having occasional seizures, sometimes a few minutes of blindness, and at times she had ataxia, which is an abnormal gait which causes her to be unsteady on her feet.

Fast Forward to the present for a current update: Sugar and spice and everything nice, that's what little Princess Ava Simone is made of! But, let's not forget that she is also playful, happy, loving, kissy face and a whole lot more of fun!! Ava loves to run through the house with her high puppy energy, then jump right on your lap for some oh-so-loving puppy dog kisses. Then she'll do it all over again. And again..

Along with kisses, Ava loves to play fetch and actually brings her toy back to her foster mom. She loves to swim in the pool, but not without someone WATCHING her EVERY move. She's fast, but she hasn't figured out how to get out on the steps yet, so foster mom is right there to make sure she learns. But, speaking of steps, she also knows how to run up the stairs, onto the bed and jump up and down for attention (and that means more kisses for you). She loves to wrestle with her foster siblings and then come back to your lap for more kisses. Ava just lights up the room when she is present, and is such a joy to be with and her foster parents just can't say enough great things about her!

But wait - there's some not-so-good potential issues ...... You see, although Ava is living her life to the fullest, it is because she doesn't know she is sick. Immediately upon entering our Foster Care Program, she was put on a strict RX diet and medications to control her seizure activity. Ava may possibly have some very serious medical issues, including a suspected liver shunt that has previously caused her to have seizures and ataxia. Ava has an upcoming appointment on 04/27 to see a specialist that will be able to diagnose and treat her potential liver shunt so she can continue to live the life she is meant to live.

We all want Ava to be able to live a full and healthy life, but we need your help to do it. We desperately need donations so that we can determine what is wrong with her and provide her with the medical care she needs. Won't you please help us help this beautiful puppy who is so full of life and so deserving of a chance to live a long healthy life? We have so many wonderful generous angel donors and we appreciate each and every one of you. Please consider making a donation towards Ava's upcoming medical testing and possible surgery by clicking on the PayPal link below. Every donation helps and every donation will be applied to her current and upcoming medical expenses.

PLEASE NOTE: We do not know what Ava's adult weight will be at this time. If she remains at 6.5 pounds, any adoption will be restricted to an adoptive home with children over the age of 14 years old.

Update 3/22/21: Ava Simone won't be having her surgery until at least the end of March to possibly the middle of April. After her potential surgery she will need approximately 2 to 3 months of recovery time. At this time, we will not be accepting adoption applications for Ava until the middle of April. If you do submit an application for possible adoption of Ava, please understand that it will go into a file and not be looked at or considered until we know when she will be ready for adoption.

UPDATED BIO 03/18/2021: Ava Simone has been in her UYR foster home for a little over a week now. She was surrendered by her previous owner in California and our UYR flight angel flew her to Florida so that we can assess her health and get her to a specialist. We are uncertain at this time about what may be going on with sweet puppy Ava. Her symptoms lead us to believe she may have a liver shunt or it could be something else. Ava was having occasional seizures, sometimes a few minutes of blindness, and at times she had ataxia, which is an abnormal gait which causes her to be unsteady on her feet.

Immediately after Ava was surrendered to UYR in CA, she was put on Keppra to help control the seizures as well as Lactulose which is used to reduce the amount of ammonia in patients with suspected liver disease. She is also on an RX diet for dogs with potential liver issues. Ava urgently needed appropriate medical care, and her symptoms have greatly improved since she arrived in Florida.

Now for some good news. According to Avas foster mom, she is bubbling with puppy personality! She loves to get toys out of her toy box and can keep herself entertained for quite some time. She also loves playing fetch with her humans whenever possible. She loves to wrestle with her foster siblings. She can jump up on a bed without fail (she loves to cuddle up to you in bed), and she loves to swim in the swimming pool!

One would think that Ava Simone is a healthy, vibrant puppy and living a normal puppy life. But its very possible that Ava has medical issues that could be life threatening. The vets who have seen Ava suspect that she may have a liver shunt and may require major surgery to save her life. Because Ava has had seizures in the past, we just don't know why yet, but the medications and RX food is surely helping things along. Ava may have a liver shunt, or it may be something else. The only way to find out is with additional testing and exploratory surgery to determine the extent of her medical issues. The Florida veterinarian specialist who has been monitoring Ava's progress wants her to be stable for at least 2-4 weeks prior to any further testing and surgery. Her foster mom is in close contact with the specialist and is keeping a very close eye on this little princess.

We all want Ava to be able to live a full and healthy life, but we need your help to do it. We desperately need donations so that we can determine what is wrong with her and provide her with the medical care she needs. Wont you please help us help this beautiful puppy who is so full of life and so deserving of a chance to live a long healthy life?

INITIAL BIO 03/09/2021: At the very young age of 6 months old little Ava Simone is already a world traveler. She made the trip from California to Florida with her wonderful flight angel. Ava needs medical care, and we are going to get that medical care for her in Florida. We are not sure exactly what is going on with this sweet puppy girl. Her symptoms could be a sign of a liver shunt or it could be something else. She was having occasional seizures, sometimes a few minutes of blindness, and at times an unsteady gait.

When Ava is feeling good she is a happy, active, loving little darling girl. She loves to play and cuddle and give kisses. But when she isn't feeling well it is so sad to see. She looks at you with her beautiful eyes that are saying, please help me. And that is exactly what we are going to do. We are going to help her.

Ava is now on the proper food and medication for some of these symptoms. Her surgeon in Florida is ready to do surgery as soon as he knows she is stable enough to undergo the surgery for the possible liver shunt or what else may be going on most likely in her liver.

We already know Ava's care is going to cost a lot of money. We want her to live the long life she was meant to live. Help us help Ava Simone and give what you can. Thank you

Florida
Bella

Meet Bella, the beautiful new Florida Yorkie. Bella is about 4-1/2 years old and weighs 9 pounds. Bella is being fostered in Tampa, FL

Dogs being fostered in Florida must be adopted within the State of Florida

THANK YOU TO BELLA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Michele Miles, Barbara Burgess

UPDATED BIO 09/04/2021: Bella was found by animal control walking the streets. She was full of ticks and fleas. It was challenging to pull all the ticks and fleas off; however, in her foster home, they persisted and were successful.

Foster mom says that this sweet girl has been so much fun! She is house-trained and loves playing with stuffed dog toys and tennis balls. She is playful, yet has a very loving, affectionate side. She absolutely loves kids and insists on being as close to them as possible. Bella has not met a small dog she did not like. The only thing she has seemed scared of are bigger dogs, so no bigger dogs in Bella's forever home.

Bella's top traits are being needy and affectionate, and because of this she needs a home where she will rarely be left alone. She would do best as an only dog, as she wants to be the center of your world. She will whine when she wants you to make room for her in your lap. If you don't, she will whine worse than a child wanting candy lol! This is the same thing she does when she wants to go outside. Bella has good manners and knows the meaning of no. Her foster parents have been working on sit and stay, although she does not seem very treat motivated.

Bella does need some training on not darting out the door when the doorbell rings. She is a speed machine, so her forever home must be aware of this and take the proper precautions. Bella's perfect forever home would be one with a fenced yard, but this isn't a deal breaker.

Due to the massive amount of fleas and ticks that Bella presented with, she was tested for tick-borne diseases. She was negative for Lyme, but she did test positive for Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, although she has had no symptoms since it is a mild case. She is on a course of Docycycline and will go back to the vet on 10/02 to have titers done. She is scheduled to be spayed on 09/15.

Bella will not be ready for adoption until early October when she has received a clean bill of health from the vet.

Bella has a few things to say about how she is doing .

Hi - Princess Bella here!

Now that I am settled in my foster home, I have a nice routine and have shown my foster family that I am fully house-trained after all. Aren't I smart? I enjoy relaxing walks at sunset, or for that matter, any time of the day really. Naptime is one of my top hobbies, and I like to snuggle up in fluffy blankets. The fluffier, the better. At night, I don't make a peep unless I need to go outside. I recently found out that I like to lay on the back of couches. It is my Princess throne where I can see everything out the window and know what is going on at all times.

In my forever home, I prefer a home with at least one stay-at home or work- from-home parent. I love lots of lap time, and I can't do that if you are not home with me. A fenced yard would be nice, but is not a deal breaker. My leash walking skills get an A+! I do get distracted pretty easily by different smells and squirrels, but I don't pull on the leash. Some days I just like to lay out in the grass and relax.

According to my foster family, I am still quite a little talker. My barking has been better, but I still enjoy barking at doorbells, movement out the window and when I see new people. My foster family says my tail wags back and forth like car windshield wipers. It also has multiple speed settings!

I'm still looking for my perfect forever home, are you the one?

UPDATED BIO 08/22/2021: Bella a/k/a "Princess in Training" was found by animal control walking the streets. She was full of ticks and fleas. The shelter did what they could, a Capstar killed the fleas and the shelter staff worked to remove the ticks, but still they were not able to remove all of them. When she arrived at her foster home, she was given a Nexgard. The next day, her foster mom pulled over 30 dead ticks off of her- all while Bella napped!

Bella had her vet visit and is up-to-date on all of her vaccinations. She was microchipped and labs were done. The puncture wound on the front of her neck is infected. The vet gave her an antibiotic shot as well as some ointment to put on the wound. Her other wounds on the back of her neck and various other places are almost fully healed. The vet was shocked how her teeth looked so pearly white! Bella will not need a dental for at least 6 months or more. She has done well with getting her teeth cleaned daily using dental wipes. Bella has a 2 week follow up with the vet on August 30th. Hopefully her wounds will all be healed and she can be spayed at that time. She tested heartworm negative. Yay! Bloodwork results came back normal with the exception of white cell count, which was a bit on the high side, most probably caused by her infected wounds. The antibiotic shot given at the vet will help this return to normal.

Her dry, scaly skin is still stinky from the yeast infection, but it will slowly clear up with medicated baths. Foster Mom is giving her Omega 3 supplements in her dry food, and this should also help her skin heal from all the tick/flea bites. Bella had one initial bath to get off as much stinky-ness as possible. Unfortunately, we have to wait until the wounds are healed for another bath. Then her skin issues can be appropriately addressed.

So far Bella has interacted wonderfully with kids and small dogs while being separated by the puppy play yard gate, however, she was very timid around large dogs when out for a walk. Bella is doing well with her house training, but needs some reinforcement, and her foster mom will be working on that.

Bella is a sweet dog with a great disposition despite what she has been through. As of now, her foster family believes her forever home would be with a family that is home a lot. She is a great little barker so her foster mom thinks that a quiet, residential neighborhood in a single unattached home would be best for her. She may annoy neighbors with her barking in a condo, townhome, or apartment. Stay tuned as Bella transforms into a beauty and her personality starts to show more!

Keep in mind that Bella wont be ready for her forever home until her wounds heal and her skin has recovered from the trauma of ticks and fleas. It will take her foster mom at least until mid-September to know what Bella needs in her perfect forever home.

Bella did have a few additional comments to make to her potential adoptive family and here they are!

Hi, Im Bella! Im really happy to be in a safe, loving home! I had a relaxing spa day with a bath, massage and nail trim. I smiled the whole time! I love going on walks - my foster mom says my leash walking gets an A+! I am a cuddle bug and prefer to be sitting on my humans lap - not next to them but ON them. I have my own gated area at my foster mom's house. Whenever she gets out of my sight I will whine and sometimes bark. I want to be wherever my person is at all times. Naptime is my favorite but I LOVE playing with my stuffed animal toys. The shelter said I was 10 years old. Let me tell you they were wrong. The vet said I am really maybe about 4-1/2 years old. I'm a spring chicken and I am pretty feisty. My foster mom is working with me on sit and stay commands as well as my house training. I go outside to potty 90% of the time, but sometimes I do have accidents inside. Im a great little barker. My foster mom is working with me on not barking so much. I like to bark at new people, when my family is leaving or coming home, and if I hear any sounds. Otherwise, I am quiet except for some occasional snoring. My foster mom also says my ears are twice as big as my head. I think one day my ears might be able to receive messages from outer space! Im looking for my forever home, could you be my perfect person?

Initial Bio 8/18/21 Bella was picked up off the streets covered in fleas and ticks. In fact the ticks were so bad she actually had no use of her back legs due to tick paralysis. The shelter immediately gave her a Capstar. They watched the fleas die and fall off by the hundreds. They also picked off tick after tick after tick. Bella had to be shaved way down on her back. Once she was shaved you could see many scabs and some wounds caused by the parasites as well as from life on the streets. At the shelter Bella was vaccinated and given a heartworm and flea and tick preventative.

Bella being so small and so scared the shelter knew she needed to be out of there quickly. When United Yorkie Rescue went to get her out walked this beautiful little Yorkie. Once the ticks were gone so was the paralysis and once the fleas and ticks were gone she felt like a different, much happier dog. Bella was perfect in the car, after she quickly stole the peanut butter sandwich that was left within her reach, it's what dogs do, she had a full belly and settled down in the doggie car seat and slept through the whole ride to her foster home. Bella walked nicely on the leash and even did her business outside. She was quiet and allowed us to handle her with no problem.

Bella will have a well doggie check very soon. She needs a heartworm test, a fecal, and bloodwork. We are not sure if she is spayed since no scar could be seen by the shelter. Medically we will know a lot more about Bella very soon. As far as how she does with other dogs, older children, and those many other things we have yet to learn about her. There is more to know and more to tell about Bella. It all will be coming soon.

I have heartworms - please donate to my treatment.
Florida
Bowie Jones

MEET BOWIE JONES. He is a sweet little male yorkie who is 7-1/2 years old and weighs a skinny 6-1/2 lbs. Bowie Jones is being fostered in Tallahassee, FL.

PLEASE NOTE: Bowie is Heartworm Positive and he will not be available for adoption for at least four months. Please consider donating to his HW treatment.

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

THANK YOU TO BOWIE JONES' RESCUE ANGELS!

THANK YOU TO BOWIE JONES' FACEBOOK DONORS!

UPDATED BIO 09/17/2021: Bowie was surrendered to a vets office because the owners were no longer able to care for this sweet boy. He desperately needed a dental and neuter, which was done by the generous & caring vet who contacted United Yorkie Rescue to see if we could bring him into our group. Bowies mouth was horribly infected and he lost all of his remaining 6 teeth, but he has no trouble eating for sure!

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

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

Bowie must remain in his foster home until his heartworm treatment is completed and will be available for adoption late December/early January. PLEASE NOTE: Due to Bowies small size, he cannot be adopted into a home with children younger than 12 years old.

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

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

INITIAL BIO 09/02/2021: Bowie was originally surrendered to a vets office because the owners were no longer able to care for this sweet boy. He desperately needed a dental and neuter, which has been done by the generous & caring vet who contacted United Yorkie Rescue to see if we could bring him into our group. Bowies mouth was horribly infected and he lost all of his remaining 6 teeth. He also had two oronasal fistulas as a result of the severe periodontal disease. An oronasal fistula happens when the tissue erodes away due to decay and forms a fistula between the oral cavity and nasal passageways, and can cause great discomfort and plain. These were repaired during his dental. Poor little fella

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

Look at me now! I feel so much better!

This is the sad picture of the mammary tumors - gone!
Florida
Callie

This sweet little Yorkie girl is Callie. She is about 12 years old and only 6.5 pounds. Callie is being fostered in Bradenton, FL.

CALLIE NEEDS OUR HELP!

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

B>THANK YOU TO CALLIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Lindy Log, Sandy Pagnotta, Rebecca Kip, Karry Rogers, Allison Triplett, Bonnie Vaupel, Jean deVegter, Barbara Burgess, Cheryl Miller

Updated bio 9/13/21 Callie is a sweet, petite, 6.5 pound little darling. Now that she had her surgery and that awful tumor is gone she has become such a good natured, social girl. She will follow her foster mom and dad all around the house. She will take any opportunity to crawl intoher peoples' laps or sit at their feet. She seems to be house trained, which is prettynice. Calliedoes need a little help with leash walking,otherwise this cutie is just about perfect, well behaved, loving, and just a little princess.

Two weeks ago Callie'svet removed a very large mammary tumor. After the surgery the mass was sent off for a biopsy. The pathology showed that there was early stage cancer in the mass. However, the vet believes he got it all and the margins were clear. Whenthe sutures were removed the vet noticeda light green tattoo on her belly. That indicated that it was more than likely Callie was spayed. It seems that even spayed dogs can get mammary tumors. Sadly for Calliethat tumor wasn'tremoved before that mass grew to such a largesize. Had it been removed early it probably never would have generated cancer cells. Thankfully, it was early stage cancerand unlikely to have spread. We know her lungs showed no sign of cancer. Callie'sfoster parents were told that it would be a good idea to check Callie for any new tumors when she goesfor her annual veterinaryappointments.He didn't see any reasons for being concerned now.Although Callie was more than likely spayed and the cancer was only in the removed mass, hesuggested that Callie's mammaries be watched for any sign of growth. Callie may be one of those pups who is prone to mammary tumors. These turmos aren't fatal if they are caught early and removed.

Callie is ready to find her forever family. Don'tlet herage scare you away. This senior baby has so much love and life left in her. She will make someone a wonderful companion and cuddle bug. Callie would prefer an adult only home. A home with someone who is home often so that she can get the love and attention she enjoys. If you are lucky enough to adopt this girl, you won't regret it for a minute. Every bit of love you give Callie she will give back to you10 times over. Callie is lookingfor her forever home. Will it be yours?

Initial Bio 8/24/21 How much sadder can life get for one tiny little girl? Picked up wandering the street with no idea where she was or why she was on the street, is only the start of Callie's sad story. When Animal Control brought her into the shelter they couldn't believe what they saw. She has a huge ulcerated and infected mammary mass that is ulcerated and looked like it encompassed all her mammaries. It is possible the tumor is cancerous. Her eyes are infected, she has hair loss, and probably a skin infection.

The shelter started to treat her right away and called for United Yorkie Rescue to come get her as quickly as possible, and we did. Callie will be seeing the vet very soon. She needs an x-ray of her lungs to make sure no cancer spread from the tumor. If that is good, the tumor needs to be removed and sent off for a biopsy. We are hoping for good news but ready to love and care for her whatever we find out.

Please keep Callie in your hearts. And PLEASE help United Yorkie Rescue, and donate towards Callie's much needed major medical care. She has been let down by people her whole life. It will never happen to her again, not as long as she is with us. She will be loved and cared for no matter how long she has, with your help that could be a long time.


To date we've spent $887.94 on Callie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $865 in donations.
Please donate!

Look how cute I am!

Me and my brother Otto - we need to be adopted together.
Florida
Fritz (and Otto)

Fritz (and Otto) are a bonded pair of very handsome Pomeranians. Otto is an adorable 5 year old 13 pound fella. They are being fostered in Clearwater, FL.

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

UPDATED BIO 09/21/2021: Fritz and Otto were sadly surrendered when their mommy passed away and no family member could take them. Both dogs were so loved and greatly cared for by their mommy. They loved her so very much!

Fritz is the sweetest fella and loves nothing more than to be in your lap giving you kisses. He welcomes affection at any time, and has no problem getting it with that sweet face. He is quite fine in his bed and has no problem laying in it or on the floor when he needs a nap. He is very lively, but not overwhelming. His excitement beams out of him, both vocally and physically when he knows hes getting ready for a walk. His foster parents are working to calm him down during his walks. Fritz (or Fritzy as his foster mommy calls him) follows commands, is very well behaved, and learns very quickly. He has a big appetite for such a little guy and is always waiting and anxious for his meal and any treats.

Fritz loves to go outside in the yard, so a fenced yard would be a bonus. He is good with other dogs and people. We do not have a history with him with children, however, he shows no signs of any aggressive behavior.

Fritz is up-to-date on all shots, but needs to be neutered and microchipped. His foster mommy will be working to get this accomplished.

Fritz has grown up with his brother Otto. They are a tag team and follow each others lead. They eat together, go potty together, walk together, and sleep together. Otto is the calmer of the two and Fritz is the alpha dog. Because they have spent their lives bonded to each other, it would be best that they be adopted together.

Initial bio 9/17/21: Fritz and Otto were sadly surrendered when their only mommy passed away and no family member could take them. Both dogs were so loved by their mommy and they loved her so very much!

They are both incredibly attentive and just want to please their person. Otto is more laid back, gentle and calm while Fritz wants to breath the same air as you and just be loved on. They are both very loving and affectionate. Even though they are two dogs they act as one and are very bonded so they must be adopted together.

Stay tuned as we get to know this dazzling duo.

Kelani

Kelani is an adorable 9 year old 8.7 pound Yorkie girl. She is being fostered in Orlando, FL

THANK YOU TO KELANI'S FACEBOOK DONORS!

UPDATED BIO 09/22/2021: Kelani was rescued 11 days ago from an area shelter. Kelani's previous owner had brought her into the shelter to have her euthanized what?? The shelter immediately reached out to UYR to see if we would bring this sweet girlie into our Foster Care Program. Of course we said YES!

Kelani wanted to tell everyone how she is doing...what a sassy little lady - read what she said below:

Kelani here - here's the basics about me - I am current on all my shots, spayed and microchipped. I am housetrained-aren't I smart? I love car rides and walking on a leash. I don't mind getting a bath. I'm not too picky about food and I'm even learning to enjoy fruits and veggies. Yesterday, I had some nectarine. Boy, was that tasty. I don't play with toys much, but my foster mom is trying to get me interested in them. I like other small doggies. I'm friendly with people, but I don't know about young children. It would be best if my new home didn't have anyone younger than 12-14 years old. I would prefer that my new mom/dad was retired, worked part-time or worked from home. I don't like to be left alone for long periods of time.

When my foster mom took me to the dogtor about a week ago, my exam was going along very nicely and everything was good. But then, the nice lady vet listened to my heart and immediately said, "What is this?". She told my foster mom that my heartbeat should have a 1-2 beat. Instead, it has a 1-2-3 beat. She said it could be a heart valve that might not be closing properly, and that an expensive test could let us know what it is.

Yikes! And here I thought all I was going to need is a dental cleaning and I'd be ready for my forever home. Not so fast. She said I would need an Echocardiogram to find out what my heart was really doing before I could get my teeth cleaned.

So, I now need to see a specialist and get the test with the big name, so I'm calling it an ECHO. You think you have trouble getting an appointment with your doctor? My foster mom called a local specialist who said sure they could see me...at the end of October! That wasn't going to work, so she called a few more places. Looks like I'm going to Jacksonville on 09/27/2021. Just so you know, Jacksonville is two hours away from my foster mom's home, but she said I am worth it and we will have an adventure on the road. Im not sure what an adventure means, but she made it sound like fun, so I'm in!

From Foster Mom: Kelani's exam and Echocardiogram with the cardiologist is expected to cost $600. If you are moved by Kelani's spirit and her story, please consider donating towards the cost of this very important test. Your donations will allow us to not only help Kelani, but will also allow us to help other little doggies who also need us. Any little bit you can contribute will help. So, if you find it in your heart to help, please click on the donate button under Kelani's bio and donate whatever you can. If you are unable to donate, please send prayers to this little sweetie that we will be able to help her get healthy.

Initial bio 9/11/21 Foster mom picked her up today and said she is extremely sweet and she rides in the car great! She is already getting to know her two fur sisters and becoming part of the family.

Stay tuned as we get to know this precious little girl.

I am ready for my spa treatment. My foster mom is the best.

This is a really nice foster home. I am so glad I am here.

Louie

This Yorkie Mix is Louis. Louis is about 10 years old and 13.4 pounds. This guy is one sweet pup. Louis is being fostered in Bradenton, FL.

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

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 $460.31 on Louie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Max

This little cutie is Max. He is 10 years old and weighs only 7 pounds. Max is being fostered in Odessa, FL.

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

THANK YOU TO MAX'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Nestor Sanchez, Jean Kirwan, Sarah Burton, Shawn Hudson, Wendy Fuhrmaneck

UPDATED BIO 09/20/2021: Little Max continues to be a sweet and loving little boy. He loves to be the center of attention in his home, and for this reason, his foster parents feel he needs to be the only dog in the home so that he can receive all the attention!

Max is very friendly and affectionate. He loves to be petted and will bump your hand with his paw for attention if he feels he is not getting enough - how sweet is that? He loves to lie on the sofa next to his person, he is very sociable with people and loves to follow his foster mom around the house. Max takes treats nicely and enjoys play time.

Max appears to love bath time and stands very still and doesnt whine when Foster Mom bathes him sweet! He is such an easy little boy - he is happy at night in bed with his bone. He will chew on it for a while and then lay down and go to sleep. He was also a little gentleman at the groomer.

Max is still not a fan of riding in the car. He will stand up the whole time in a frozen position and whine a bit poor little guy. This handsome fella still needs a little more help and reinforcement in the house-training department. It is important that he be taken out often to do his business.

Max will bolt if an outside door is left open, so he needs to go into a forever home that is aware of this possibility and make sure all doors are securely closed at all times when Max is free in the house. Max does not need a fenced yard, but it would be a bonus if his adopters have one, Max would sure love it. Max has some separation anxiety when he is left alone, therefore a home with at least one stay-at-home parent is what this little fella needs. He enjoys frequent walks and walks nicely while on the leash. Max still needs a little more help and reinforcement in the house-training department. It is important he be taken out often to do his business.

Max is so ready for his forever home. He has had all his vaccinations and bloodwork completed. It was found that Max is in the early stages of kidney disease, but he is doing great with the proper kidney low protein dog food which he will need for the rest of his life. The cost of his RX kidney care food is $53.00 for an 8/5 lb bag, which will last for many months. Dogs like Max with this diagnosis who receive consistent vet care and proper diet can live many more years.

PLEASE KEEP THE FOLLOWING IN MIND BEFORE APPLYING TO ADOPT MAX:

-Max likes to have all the attention, so he needs to be the only dog in the home.

-Due to Max's small size, he can only be adopted into a home with children 12 years old or older

-A fenced yard is a bonus since he is a runner and he enjoys running.

-Due to his separation anxiety, Max needs at least one stay-at-home or work-from-home person.

-Max will need continued help with his house-training manners.

- Max needs a family who will ensure that they keep him on his proper kidney diet for the rest of his life.

If you want lots of love and doggie kisses and a dog that is oh-so-sweet - Max is the one for you! Don't let Max's age and medical issues scare you away. There is a lot of life to live and years to give still in darling Max.

UPDATED BIO 6/16/21: Max is as sweet as can be. He loves his people a lot and his foster mom and dad have found that Max prefers to be the center of attention.

UPDATED BIO 04/18/2021: Max was surrendered by their owner who could no longer care for his due to some serious life events. Max would enjoy having a companion dog in his adoptive home close to his age and small size.

Max has been seen by the vet and had his vaccinations updated. He is Heartworm negative thank goodness. Both Max and his brother Charlie had an infestation of hookworms and were treated with a dewormer.The vet clinic did blood workas well as a urinalysis. Due to the hookworms and the lack of recent vetting, the labs will be repeated in a few weeks.

Max's urinalysis showed that Max has protein in his urine. This indicated that sweet Max is in the early stages of kidney illness. Max is now on the proper low protein diet which should help to stabilize his kidney levels. Max recently turned 10 at the end of March and even with his early stage kidney issues he has several good years left to give love and kisses and cuddles to some lucky person.

Max is very friendly, sweet, and affectionate. He loves to be petted and will bump your hand with his paw for attention if he feels he is not getting enough or your attention.How sweet is that?He loves to lie on the sofa next to his person, he is very sociable with people he follows his foster mom around the house. Max gets along with the other dogs in his foster home. We dont know how he would do with cats since we dont know if he has ever been exposed to kitty cats.

Max is not interested in playing with toys, however that could change as he becomes more comfortable in his foster home. He is leash-trained and enjoys napping in his crate with the door open.

Max's former owner said that he was a runner if an outside door is left open, so he needs to go into a forever home that is aware of this possibility and make sure all doors are securely closed at all times when Max is free in the house.Max does not need a fenced yard, but it would be a bonus if his adopters have one, Max would sure love it. Max has some separation anxiety when he is left alone, therefore a home with at least one stay-at-home parent would be ideal for this little fella He also enjoys frequent walks and walks nicely on while on the leash. Max still needs help and reinforcement in the house-training department.

Please keep the following in mind before applying to adopt Max:

-Due to Maxs small size, he can only be adopted into a home with children 12 years old or older

-A fenced yard is a bonus since he is a runner and he enjoys running.

-Due to his separation anxiety he needs a stay at home person.

-Max will need continued help with his house training manners.

If you want love and lots of kisses and a dog that is so sweet Max is the one for you. Don't let Max's age and medical issue scare you away. There is a lot of life to live and years to give still in darling Max.

INITIAL BIO 03/28/2021: Max and his brother Charlie are bonded brothers and were surrendered by their owner who could no longer care for them due to a life event. Max and Charlie must be adopted together.

Max is very friendly, sweet and affectionate. He loves to be petted and will bump your hand with his paw for attention if he feels he is not getting enough sweet. He loves to lie on the sofa next to his person and is very sociable with people he is following his foster mom around the house.

Due to Max's small size, he and his brother can only be adopted into a home with children 12 years old or older.

Max and Charlie do not need a fenced yard but it would be a bonus if they had one. They would enjoy frequent walks for sure. So far Max isn't interested in playing with toys, but that could change as he becomes more comfortable in his foster mom. He is leash-trained and enjoys napping in his crate with the door open. Max's former owner said that he was a runner if the door is left open, so he needs to go into a forever home that is aware of this. It is obvious that both Max & Charlie need quite a bit of reinforcement in the house-training department, so his foster parents will be working with them on this. They will be seeing the vet in a few days to get a well-dog check, as well as updated vaccinations.

Sunny Boy

This sad guy is Sunny Boy. He is about 3 years young and weighs 11.4 pounds. Sunny Boy is a beautiful, blonde Schnauzer/Yorkie mix. He's a Snorkie! Sunny Boy is being fostered in Spring Hill, FL.

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

SUNNY BOY IS RECUPERATING FROM A BROKEN PELVIS.

THANK YOU TO SUNNY BOY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

UPDATED BIO 09/23/2021: Sunny Boy was found on the street and picked up by animal control after possibly being hit by a car. He was unable to put any weight on his back legs when found. The shelter gave him pain meds, took a lot of x-rays and put a catheter in to help him eliminate urine. The call went out to their rescue partners that this guy needed to be out of the shelter right away. We were there to see that it happened.

Sunny Boy has been in his UYR foster home for 10 days now. He was immediately taken to the vet who determined that Sunnys pelvis was fractured and because the pelvis is still open, he will not need surgery. Most pelvic fractures in dogs heal on their own. The local tissues in the area of the fracture frequently keep the fracture pieces in order and the bones heal with crate rest for up to 6 weeks. He is also receiving laser treatments to help him heal, both inside and outside.

Sunny is crated at all times except when foster mom carries him outdoors to potty. He can now stand for a very short time when she puts him down, and he will lift his leg to do his business. As soon as he is finished, she picks him up to bring him back inside and into his crate.

Sunny happily eats and drinks in his crate and is on pain meds every 4 hours. This sweet boy never complains or gets aggressive. He is very friendly and wags his tail when greeted. Even with the pain of his fractured pelvis, Sunny has shown a sweet personality in a short time. What a little trooper he is! Foster mom says he is a real sweetheart and we are encouraged that he will have a full recovery.

Foster mom says he is a real sweetheart and we are encouraged that he will have a full recovery.

Updated Bio 9/14/21 Sunny Boy spent most of the day at the vet clinic. It was determined that Sunny's pelvis is fractured and will need weeks to heal. The good news is that his pelvis is still open which will allow it to heal without surgery. Sunny Boy will have to be crated for up to 6 weeks. He is still unable to use his back legs and in order to do his business he will have to be held up with a towel or a soft blanket under his belly so he can do his bathroom business.

The vet gave Sunny Boy a pain injection and an injection of antibiotics. He was also given a laser treatment on both sides of his back end. The hope is that the initial laser treatments and future treatments will quicken the healing time and help relieve some of the pain. Sunny will be on pain meds for several weeks which should help him feel better and get him to start eating and drinking. Right now, because of the pain, Sunny hasn't had any appetite. His foster mom is ready to gently syringewater into his mouth if she needs to so that he doesn't get dehydrated.

Our hope is that every day he feels better and better. He should be able to use his legs in time, but will still have to be crated to allow his pelvic bones to heal. Sunny has some pretty bad bruises on his back legs which will also have to heal. This beautiful, blonde, silky soft boy is a young dog. The vet thought he could be as young as two years old and certainly no older than three years old. Hopefully, because he is so young he will heal more quickly. Once he starts to feel better he will want to be sprung from his confinement, since after all young dogs like nothing better than to run around and play, but that won't happen until he is all healed.

We are all anxiously waiting for the day Sunny Boy can again stand on all four of his feet. We will share this happy day with all of Sunny Boy's fans out there. So come back and find out. Sunny Boy won't be able to be adopted for several weeks and no applications can be considered until he is healed and his foster parents get to know the real Sunny Boy's needs and personality. To share Sunny Boy's progress with us, come back soon.

Initial Bio 9/13/21 Sunny Boy was found on the street after possibly being hit by a car. He is not able to put any weight on his back legs.

The call went out to their rescue partners that this guy needed to be out of the shelter right away. We were there to see that it happened.

We gave him the name Sunny Boy in the hope that soon he will really be a sunny boy. Right now he is sad and hurting and life is not so sunny and happy for him. But we hope to soon turn this around. He will see the vet right away. We are not sure if he will need some major surgery or another kind of veterinary medical care. Whatever he needs, United Yorkie Rescue will make sure he gets it. Sunny Boy is only 3 years old. He should be playing and having fun, instead he is lying in a crate unable to move, never mind run and play.

Very soon we hope to know what Sunny Boy needs to get him back up, feeling better, and loving life again. Come back soon and find out.

Aston
Illinois
Aston

Meet Aston. Aston a 10-year-old, 8 pound girl. She is being fostered near Beach Park, IL.

UPDATE 9/18/21: Aston, our 10 year old little Yorkie had her dental yesterday. The vet said she doesnt have too many teeth remaining, but she has no problem eating. We call Aston the Velcro dog because she wants to be with you wherever you are and when you sit, thats an open invitation for her to jump on your lap. Aston is up to date on vaccinations, is spayed and is housebroken. She prefers to go outdoors but will use a potty pad.

Due to cataracts in both eyes, Aston has practically no vision, however she learns quickly and maneuvers the house very well. She gets along well with my yorkies even though one isnt always pleasant to her.

Aston may fit better in a quiet, adult only home and she would probably prefer to be the only dog. She does need a fenced yard as she wanders despite her vision issues. If you would like more information, you can email her foster mom. Applications can be completed on the United Yorkie Rescue website for those who think Aston might be a perfect family member.

UPDATE BIO: 08/14/21. Aston is a super sweet and lovable little 10 year old girl. She has been spayed, microchipped and is up to date on all vaccinations. She will be getting a dental and we are going to schedule an eye consult to see what we can do to have her cataracts removed, so she can have vision again. At the present time she has one mature cataract in one eye and another cataract in the other eye that causes her to bump into things and not be able to move out of your path. I have tripped over several times as she wants to be everywhere you are and I would not want someone to and injure themself or her.

Aston should be in an adult only home and with no other dogs or possibly with a dog who is calm and understanding of her vision disability. Hopefully we can get this corrected. I will update as we find out more. If you are interested in adopting sweet little Aston, please complete an application on the United Yorkie Rescue website.

UPDATE BIO: 07/17/21. Aston had her wellness checkup yesterday at the vet. She is currently up to date on all vaccinations and her heart worm test was negative, yahoo! She does have a mature cataract in one eye so she is pretty much blind in that eye and a cataract in the other eye that limits her vision so she bumps into things. She does a fair job going up stairs but her depth perception is way off going down so she needs to be in a home without stairs or have the stairs closed off so she doesnt fall down them. She also needs someone who understands blind or visually impaired dogs as she wants to follow everywhere you go and if you make a quick turn, you practically fall over her.

Aston also needs a home with no small children due to her near blindness condition. Even with limited vision, she wants to take off outdoors so she must always be leashed and a fenced yard is required.

Aston is a very sweet and extremely lovable little lady who prefers sitting on laps other than sitting on a cold, hard floor or carpet. If you think Aston might make your life complete, please fill out an application for adoption. She has so much love to offer!

INITIAL BIO: 07/07/21 Aston is a sweet little 8 1/2 pound , 10 year old little bundle of love who is being fostered in Beach Park, IL. She will be seeing the vet shortly for her checkup. She does seem to have a vision issue but her hearing is excellent. If you look in the dictionary under lap dog, I do believe there is a picture of Aston. She is the ultimate lap dog! Because of her age and poor eyesight, she needs a fenced yard and a home with no small children.

I will post more info on her later as she just came into the rescue and we are still evaluating. If you think she would make an excellent companion, please complete an application at www.unitedyorkierescue.org


To date we've spent $683.04 on Aston's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $50 in donations.

Bentley
Illinois
Bentley

Meet Bentley, an adorable 5 year old, 8 pound Yorkie boy being fostered in Caseyville, IL.

Update 9/22/21: Bentley had his first vet visit last night and received a clean bill of health! He weighed 10.9 lbs and behaved incredibly well. The vet estimates him to be 5-6 years old. He received all his vaccines, tested negative for heartworms and parasites, and is scheduled for a neuter and dental on Oct. 13th, along with presurgical labs on Oct. 11th. After he recovers from those procedures, he should be ready to go to his forever home at the end of October. In the meantime, he is learning a lot and doing very well with potty training. Put in your application today for this handsome love bug!

Initial Bio 9/17/21: Hi, I'm Bentley! I was plucked off the street as a stray by a very nice man, reported to animal control and held on stray hold for 7 days. No one was looking for me and sadly, I was in pretty bad shape when arriving to foster mom's house. I had hundreds of fleas covering my entire body, even my eyeballs! I had a wound on my side that was old and had a nasty scab, my nails were several inches long, and I was pretty gross overall. Foster mom got me all cleaned up and rid of the bugs, thank goodness! I feel much better now, but definitely need some vet care. I need to get vaccinated, neutered, have a dental, dewormed, and tested for heartworms. This will all be done over the next month and we will know more after my vet visit. I clearly was used for breeding, and I am an anxious, busy little guy learning how to live in a house. I get along with the resident dogs, although I prefer the little dog over the big. I am not fully housetrained, but I am working on it. I have kept my crate clean at night, but I really don't want to stay one any longer than I have to since that was my life before coming here. I would do fine as an only dog since I LOVE attention and get very jealous, barky, and pushy when I am not being shown all the love. If there is another dog, I would prefer it be small and already well balanced to help keep me less anxious. I am extremely needy and clingy, and I will need someone who can devote a LOT of time to me and continue my training, so someone who stays home would be the best fit home for me. I am very happy and sweet, and love people, but given my anxiousness, small kids would not be ideal - plus I have no concept of getting out of the way of feet so I am a huge trip and step hazard. I have not met a cat but given that I can be slightly picky with my dog friends I dont think cats are high up on my list of friends either. I won't be ready to leave for a month or so, but if you have any questions, email my foster mom at resqdogs2@yahoo.com.

Oliver
Illinois
Oliver

MEET OLIVER. He's a 12 year old sweet, 10 lbs Yorkie looking for a quiet home where he will have lots of attention and love.

Oliver is being fostered in Canton, IL.

Oliver must be adopted within a 20 mile radius of his foster home. Please consider this before applying for him.

Initial 9/17/21: Oliver was previously adopted through United Yorkie Rescue, however his owner passed away, so he's looking for a new Forever Home.

Oliver is well behaved. It seems at one time he was well loved & had an owner that trained him pretty well. He appears to be house trained and does his business outside. Oliver will require a home with a secure fenced in yard due to his creative ability to escape and wander. He likes to go outside in the fenced yard & explore! sniff everything out there. Please note wireless fences will not be permitted.

An active retired couple with a quiet home would be ideal for Oliver as he enjoys walks, however will need to be on a secure harness. He was excited to go for a walk at the park this morning & does very well on a leash!

Despite his missing teeth, he has a fantastic appetite! He has let me know he will not be sleeping in a kennel. He prefers the center of the bed. He has already claimed a couple of dog beds and a spot on the couch. He is very sweet and not a barker.

Oliver has an upcoming appointment with the Dogtor, so more to come!


To date we've spent $229.71 on Oliver's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Phoebe

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

THANK YOU TO PHOEBE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Geoffrey Washington

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

Dante

Meet Dante, a handsome 7 year old, 15 pound Yorkie boy being fostered in East Providence, RI.

THANK YOU TO DANTE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Elizabeth Candido

UPDATE 9/19/21: I’ve had a great summer here in Rhode Island. I went and had a Spaw day, my hair had to be cut short due to mats and my nails were very overgrown and it was uncomfortable to walk. I’m even more handsome now and will greet you with a smile and pearly with teeth.

I’m working on my leash walking and putting on my harness, I just get so excited that I walk on my tippy toes. I still need to see the Vet man. I have to get a neuter and update my vaccines. We had a tropical storm and the Vet hospital had water damage so my check up has been postponed.

We know Dante doesn’t tolerate a crate and he is fine if left alone in the house. He loves a good belly rub and will roll over as soon as you pet him and Is a good couch potato as long as He can be snuggled next to you.

INITIAL BIO: 08/04/21. Dante is 7 yr.old and 15 pounds of handsome. His owner surrendered him since they have small children in the home and Dante was not getting the attention he deserved.

Dante had a long day, coming from New Jersey to Rhode Island, having no idea who we were or why he was leaving his home. He was very anxious and restless, but after 3 days to decompress, Dante is much more relaxed, enjoys sitting with FD and getting belly rubs. One of the cutest things Dante does is to take his blanket and cover himself up for sleep.

Stay tuned as we get to know more about him.

Emmitt after surgery
Tennessee
Emmitt

Meet Emmitt, a cute 12 year old, 5 pound little Yorkie boy being fostered near Nashville, TN. DUE TO HIS EYE CARE ISSUES, HE WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION UNTIL DECEMBER. PLEASE DO NOT SUBMIT ANY APPLICATIONS AT THIS TIME.

THANK YOU TO EMMITT'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Wendy Henry, Lauren Satterfield, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Allison Triplett, Karen McKeand

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

Liberty Grace

Liberty Grace is a 13 year old (estimated) Yorkie who weighs 4.4lbs and is being fostered near Ashland City, TN.

Updated bio 9/12/21: Liberty Grace has been to the vet and it was determined that she has 3 bad teeth left in her mouth that will need to come out. She also has 2 bigger mammary tumors and several pea size mammary tumors that will need to be removed. She also has a big oil cyst on her back that has an infection in it and it will need to be removed. She is also not spayed. The good news is her bloodwork is normal and her x rays showed that the tumors have not invaded any lymph nodes at this time. When the Dogtor removes all Tumors she will have the best quality of life. She can have her Mammary Tumors , the oil cyst, the spay and possibly the removal of those three teeth all at the same time depending on how long each procedure takes. If the Dogtor feels it is running to long she will have to have another procedure to finish up. Liberty Grace is a spunky girl who adores bing with her person at all times. She is a true lap dog. She enjoys sleeping right next to her person under the covers. She also rides perfectly in a car. She is small enough that she can go everywhere with her person. She gets along great with other dogs but if they aggravate her she will show them who is boss. Liberty is the sweetest and deserves a person of her very own to live out the rest of her Senior Years. If you would like to donate to her care please click on the paypal button below. If you have any questions please email foster mom.

Initial Bio 9/7/21: Liberty Grace was in a shelter who reached out to Rescue. We do not know her history or her true age or her given name. We decided Liberty Grace suites her just fine. This little senior lady is super sweet and wants to cuddle. Soon we will get her to the Dogtor to have her Mammary Tumors and the huge knot on her back near her spine evaluated. She does have a few wore down horrible teeth and we will get that addressed as well. If you would like to donate to her care please click on the PayPal button underneath this bio. Thank you.

Sam Elliott is an 9 year old Yorkie boy who weighs about 25 pounds and is being fostered near Ashland City, TN

THANK YOU TO SAM ELLIOT'S RESCUE ANGELS!

THANK YOU TO SAM ELLIOTT'S FACEBOOK DONORS!

Karry Rogers, Alexa Socha Rowan, Erika Filep, Mark Maddox, ML Cheah

Updated Bio 9/12/21

Sam Elliot is healing nicely. He is a totally different dog than when he first came into Rescue. He was super depressed from losing his people due to the Corona Virus. He hid in a corner for about 3 weeks only laying down and not interacting with any of the dogs or his Foster Mom. Since having Surgery on his legs, Sam Elliot is like a puppy again. He loves to play and enjoys exploring outside. He interacts with the other dogs. Sam is smart and will mind. He adores breakfast and lunch and he gets very excited when Foster mom comes home from work. Sam he sleeps on his own bed right next to Foster moms bed. Thanks to United Yorkie Rescue Sam Elliot has a second chance for a happy Pain Free life (his knees were bone on bone). We couldnt keep rescuing the medical needy dogs without your support. Thank you so much and if you would like to donate to his continued care please click on the PayPal Button below.

Updated Bio 7/23/21: Sam has had surgery on his Right Leg and is doing very well. You can tell he already feels so much better and it is healing nicely. Foster Mom has been monitoring his food intake since he cant be active right now and she thinks he may have lost a couple of much needed to lose pounds. He is super affectionate and he has started carrying around his favorite toy to play. If he feels this good with one leg fixed I bet he will be running around like a puppy in no time when he gets his Left leg Operated on. I imagine it was hard on him to be in pain all the time for no telling how long since both his back legs was rubbing bone on bone. Sam has his Surgery on his Left Leg August 4th. Please keep him in your prayers that all goes as smoothly as it did with the right Leg and that he heals up fast. If you would like to donate to his care please click on the PayPal Button underneath this bio. Thank you all for your support.

Updated bio 6/28/21: Sam is a delightful young man. He LOVES being with his human. He gets along great with other dogs and is super smart and enjoys being outside exploring the yard.

Sam Elliot was surrendered because his owners (mom, dad a week later) died of Covid. The Sister of the mom reached out to United Yorkie Rescue to see if we could help this sweet boy. He was previously adopted from the Nashville Humane Association. His previous owners believed in Rescue.

Sam suffered an injury while running an playing in rescue , or so we thought, turns out his knees on both legs are bone on bone. He has had something happen or a hereditary condition before coming into rescue.. Now we want Sam to live his best life so we are going to have surgery on both legs to repair the damage. United Yorkie Rescue is Non-Profit so we couldnt continue to save these doggies without the donations of our supporters. Thank you all so much again.

Updated Bio 6/6/21: Sam Elliott is a very smart sweet boy. He loves Belly Rubs and he ADORES mealtime. Foster Mom is working on helping him lose a few pounds and he does not appreciate it lol! Sam is super friendly and rides great in a car and gets along well with other dogs. He enjoys sleeping with foster mom at night and during the day he lounges in on a blanket, dog bed or the couch. He likes to explore outside. Unfortunately he was running and playing outside and injured himself. He has a torn tendon in his knee that will require surgery. He will see an orthopedic surgeon soon to schedule the surgery. If you would like to donate to help him heal please click on the PayPal button beneath this bio. Thank you all for your support.

Initial Bio 4/20/21: Sam Elliott has just came into Rescue. His owners died due to Covid one week apart. Stay tuned as we learn more about this sweet boy. Sam will be seeing the Dogtor soon.

Initial bio 8/19/21: Tator Tot will see the specialist sometime next week as he has a hernia that has some of his insides hanging out in there that needs to be put back into place. If that doesnt happen soon it could be life threatening. I will tell you he is the sweetest, happiest boy. He has one of the best easy going personalitys I have ever seen in my fostering. His before picture showed very long hair so I am really not sure what breed he is but he had to have his haircut because he was so matted. Once he gets all fixed up he will make someone a wonderful companion. So far he isnt in any pain, but we will keep a close watch on this sweetheart till he gets his surgery.

Toto is a 9 pound Yorkie boy who is estimated to be about 12 years old and is being fostered near Ashland City, TN

Initial bio 9/15/21: Toto was surrendered to United Yorkie Rescue because his owner died and no one in the family could take him. Toto is a bit depressed right now. At first we thought he may be blind but he has dry eye syndrome that hasnt been treated in awhile and his hair was in his eyes. Now that he is being treated and the hair cut out of his eyes, he sees very well. He will require to be on an ointment for this condition for life but that is the only thing this little guy will need medically, His bloodwork was good and he is now up to date on all shots. He has a dental scheduled in October. In the meantime Foster mom will help him feel not alone and help him know he is loved. I am sure it is hard to lose your person and to be passed around. He will need a home to live out the rest of his Senior years feeling loved and secure. He is a little on the chunky side. We will be working on that as well to help him lose a pound or two. He has beautiful hair and he is super cute. If you would like to donate to his care please click on the paypal button underneath.

Bean

Meet Bean, a precious 4 pound, 5 year old little Yorkie boy who is being fostered in Georgetown, TX. Only TX applicants will be considered.

THANK YOU TO BEAN'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Nikki Staude

Updated Bio 9/3/21: Bean has been with his foster family for a while and what a love bug he is. He snuggles in your arms and cuddles to sleep at night. Bean came from a family that gave him wonderful care and took care of all his needs. He was with the same family for 5 years and during that time he is what we like to say in human terms an only child syndrome. He had all the attention and all the playtime he could get. He is good hanging out with other dogs but wouldnt be ideal to get him for a playmate for another family member. He wants only his humans to carry him, play with him, and ignores other pets. We are working on his barking as he is still learning new noises and experiences. He will bark if you ignore him especially if he wants to play. He will bark for attention. He is the cutest, sweetest and gentlest little boy. His best furever home would be with a family who has had a Yorkie and understands the breed, also someone who is home most of the time and wants to carry and snuggle with this beautiful boy.

Initial Bio 8/30/21: - Meet Bean, an adorable 4 lb 5 yr old little boy who is so full of sweetness that words can't describe. Bean was with his family for 5 years and with their job demands they were not available to give him the love and attention this little guy wants to have. He has been with foster family for 2 days and he has been a snuggle baby who loves to be carried around and play play play. He is healthy and 95% housetrained. Bean will be with his foster mom and dad for a little while while he adjusts to his new home. He is good around other dogs but since he has been the only baby, he loves his humans for his play time. A family with another small Yorkie and no children under 12 as well as someone who is always home would be his ideal furever home. His previous family weren't home too much due to their career demands so he became anxious and had some separation anxiety. He isn't too fond of car rides but loves his morning walks. If you have the time to devote to this little guy please go click on the application link below.

Coco

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

THANK YOU TO COCO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta

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

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

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

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!!

Davey

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

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 $5800.79 on Davey's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1240 in donations.

Emmie
Texas
Emmie

Meet sweet Emmie, a 5 pound, 8-10 year old little girl being fostered in Lancaster, TX. Only Texas applicants will be considered.

Due to her fragile health and long term care needs, we WILL NOT be accepting adoption requests at this time.

THANK YOU TO EMMIE' RESCUE ANGELS!

Lynne Turner, Sandy Pagnotta, John Sauser, Lynne Turner, Barbara Burgess, Yvette Vangeloff, Carol Gostomski, Cheryl Scrupski, Lauren Satterfield, Wendy Henry, Linda Woody

9/5/21 Update: Emmie came to UYR in April a very sick little girl. When UYR rescues a little one, we most often do not know what health issues will accompany them. When we say yes to saving a life like Emmies the diagnoses process can be long and very expensive. It is the goal of UYR to take these babies as broken as they may be and restore them to physical and emotional health.

We need your help. When they come to us emotionally broken it takes time to help them heal so they are with their foster family longer. When they come to us physically broken their best chance of survival is to receive good health care. Sometimes that means a good exam and vaccines. However, most have not received the lifelong care they deserved so they need a dental, skin care, bloodwork and sometimes surgery to repair the years of neglect.

Emmie had obvious urinary track concerns; her urine was dark brown. After several vet visits and an ultrasound, it was discovered that she had kidney stones and sediment. The pain she was in must have been excruciating. Fortunately, we have been able to treat this with diet and medication. Emmie is also HW positive, we are treating her with a low dose but longer duration process.

We knew something was still a little off with Emmie. It was decided that although expensive she needed a high-end test know as a scintigraphy. Although this test came at a high cost, UYR knew it was Emmies best chance to get well and live the life she deserves. This test revealed that she has a congenital liver shut. This means that the blood her liver cleans and should be sending back to her heart also flows directly into her little body without being cleansed. Emmie will see a specialist in early October for next step.

There is good news too! Emmie has gained weight in our care and is learning to love and be loved. She still has a few more hurdles. We would be sincerely grateful if you would help us continue caring for her. If you feel lead to donate to Emmies dream of being healthy and happy, please visit our website or click the link below.

Initial Bio 4/14/21: Emmie is about 8 to 10yrs old and weighs approximately 5lbs. She found herself scared and not feeling well at the local shelter after being picked up by a good samaritan who found her walking along a busy highway. Fortunately the shelter reached out to UYR and we picked this baby up the same day. We found her shivering and hiding under her bed and though she felt terrible all she could do was snuggle up to her foster mom. It was obvious she did not feel well so we went to see the doctor. Emmie had a very serious UTI which explained her erratic and anxious behavior. Her bloodwork was a little crazy with many numbers off, but the vet feels her lack of care was the cause of that. Emmie also suffered seizures later that night due to all of her medical issues which were confirmed earlier. We are treating her UTI with antibiotics and will start switching those antibiotics over to another because unfortunately Emmie is also a high heart-worm positive little girl. On top of this, Emmie will also need a spay once her body has healed from some of this neglect. As you can see, she's a hot mess. Due to her guarded health, Emmie will be the under the care of her foster mom for a year long process which will include a slow kill protocol for her heartworm disease, a dental and spay. UYR will NOT be accepting applications for this little girl due to her medical needs. Please keep sweet Emmie in your prayers!

Gabe
Texas
Gabe (aka Slick)

Meet Gabe, aka Slick, is a 5 year old, 14 pound Yorkie boy being fostered in Austin, TX. Only Texas residents will be considered>

THANK YOU TO GABE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Sandy Pagnotta

Initial Bio 9/12/21: This sweetheart came into foster care when his owner passed away last month. He and his owner were housing insecure for several years and lived amongst the Austin homeless community at times. However, he had the most amazing family of love serving as an emotional support dog for his owner. Despite this love, his living situation has resulted in some medical issues over the years. Poor Slick is dealing with several health problems. He came in with an eye ulcer, a skin infection, and hair loss due to a thyroid imbalance. Usually thyroid issues can be resolved if addressed in time, and if not he will need an inexpensive medication daily for that. The thyroid issue and the flea issue along with lack of bathing has left his hair thin on his back, His hair should come back nicely as he receives all of the above care. He has an appointment at the end of the month to check his thyroid levels. He used to have a nice full coat when talking with a past acquaintance, but even with thinner hair on his body he's a super handsome little man! His eye ulcer and skin infection are healing nicely. He is currently on eye drops and antibiotics for a few more weeks to help with that. Once he's back to full health again we'll schedule his dental. He loves snuggling at bedtime and going for walks outside. He's housetrained and enjoys playing with squeaky and crinkly toys. Nothing makes his tail wag faster than meeting the neighbor dogs on walks. He is full of love, love for others...dogs, people of all kinds and will be an amazing addition to someone's home and heart.

This precious little boy is enjoying his best life and is looking for his furever to continue that. If you feel you have the love to give this sweetheart, please complete the application and or email foster mom at uyr.atx@gmail.com.

Lily
Texas
Lily TX

Meet precious Lily, an adorable 5 pound, 11 month old Yorkie Mix being fostered in Leander, TX.

THANK YOU TO LILY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Terry Lynn Jones

Initial Bio 8/28/21- Hello UYR friends and family! We would like to introduce you to one of our newest foster pups, Lily.

Lily is a beautiful 11 month old, 5.8 lbs baby girl that is full of energy and love. Our vet thinks that Lily may be a Yorkie / Scottie mix aka a Scorkie, we are not sure, however we are sure that she is 100% adorable.

Lily was re-homed after her owners decided they did not have enough time for her. The nice lady that took her in, surrendered her to UYR within a few days after realizing that a puppy was not the right fit for her and her elderly dog. Lily gets along well with the other dogs in her foster home, but most are seniors that don't want to play. She is high energy and needs to burn that off with lots of play and walks.

Lily is not currently potty trained but her foster family is working on that. Due to Lilys small size, she will do best in a home without children under the age of 12.

Lily had a vet visit last week, and will be scheduled for her spay surgery after we receive the blood work results. She also has a few baby teeth that need to be removed. Other than that, she is healthy and should be available for adoption after she heals from her surgery in a couple weeks.

If you think sweet Lily may be a good fit for your family and you are up for the challenge of keeping up with a high energy puppy with lots and lots of love to give, please complete an adoption application. If you have any questions, contact her foster parents at UYRYorkieLOVETX@yahoo.com.

Shade

Shade

Meet Shade, a sweet 4 pound, 10 year old little Yorkie boy being fostered in Fort Worth, TX.

THANK YOU TO SHADE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Robin Boren

8/16/21 Initial Bio: Hi Everyone! My story can be told now that I am safe and doing sooo good! My name is Shade, foster mom calls me ShayShay or Shadey. My past was not good at all but it's worth telling you about it since I'm safe now and my FM says my forever mom or dad is right around the corner. Back in February a shelter had adopted me out. I was a bouncing little boy, sweet as can be like I am now, and I weighed a little over 7lbs. I was totally fit! Sadly, that's when my life changed. I don't remember much of those months, except recently I ended back up in a shelter. I heard a sweet lady from the shelter talking to my foster mom and asking if they could help me. She was telling foster mom that they had an adorable baby that came in as a felony cruelty case, that this little boy weighed just at 4lbs, was just skin and bones, had horrible bloody diarrhea and a ruptured eye that was full of infection and then she said it was me, she said my name!! I heard her say thank you thank you, she turned to me and said, you sweet baby boy, your life was about to the best and she was right! That weekend I was rescued, and this time it was with full of love and care. I like "rescued"!! FM immediately took me to the vet and she said no more horrors for you, I've got you now. She was right. I just saw the Dr yesterday and I'm a whopping 6lbs and I get to eat 2 times a day with a snack even, if I want it, and of course who turns that down!!! Sadly though, I have to have my eye removed. But, that's ok, because I'm not in any pain and I see good out of my other eye. And...FM says I'll be just adorable with a permanent wink ! This week I'll have my final blood test done then off to the Dr for my last big surgery. So, my life is just what that sweet shelter lady said... the best! Now, if you think you have the perfect home for a constant shadow, just complete an application using the link below. I am good at going potty outside, I sometimes have an accident, but FM says is her fault! Of course I'm adorable, I'm young, AND I love to eat, AND I do want to be all snuggled up by you, AND I love to lay my head on your chest when you pet me, AND I do want to sleep with you... SO if you can take that, I'm good for you! FM thinks little ones maybe a little much since I really deserve your attention, but she will see. I can't wait to meet you whoever you may be, because I know this will be my forever ever! Ohhh, and if you want to help with my medical or any of my other fur siblings here at UYR, please donate and share my story! Thank you and bless!!

Stella
Texas
Stella

Meet Stella, a precious 13 year old, 3.5 Yorkie girl being fostered in Midlothian, TX.

9/14/21 Initial Bio: There's a new girl in town for United Yorkie Rescue! She is a young 13yr old 3lb bundle of sweetness coming from the area shelter. She's all snuggled in after a good bath and some needed initial grooming from me. Her nails were grown into her pads and her matted fur was horrific with stickers, grass, sticks and dried mud! Her teeth are atrocious and rotting away...but we will take care of all of that! We stopped by the vet and they just fell in love with this sweetheart as she gave her kisses while they were giving her her exam. Overall she looks great the vet says. Luxating patella in the rear legs which she suggests joint supplement for that, cataracts from age but eyes are good, and again horrible dental disease and she could use some good care and groceries! Sweet Stella is blessed to be with two wonderful foster parents, so be on the lookout for updates on this adorable baby girl. And as always, if possible donate to our babies... they're so deserving and because of you, we can make these babies dreams come true! Bless!!

Paisley

Paisley

Paisley is an adorable, 12 Year Old little girl who is being fostered near Madison, WI.

THANK YOU TO PAISLEY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Judi Laverty, Sandy Pagnotta, Wendy Fuhrmaneck

THANK YOU TO PAISLEY'S FACEBOOK DONORS!

Kathie Goertz, Jax Sheanan Elliott, Beverly Ann, Pamela Porter O'Brien

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


To date we've spent $906.46 on Paisley 's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $480 in donations.
