THANK YOU TO MADELYNS RESCUE ANGELS!

Updated Bio 5/27/21
Maddie is really coming out of her shell. She can be very shy, but more, she is following her foster mom around the house. She is very, very quiet, would make a good dog for an apartment, and is basically a non-barker. She was really good and cooperative at the groomer, and I really think her socialization has improved because she thinks she is pretty! You could not find a more perfect pet than Maddie. She is in excellent health, uses the potty pads in the house, and will occasionally want to go outside with you. Do you think she might be a good fit for you? Please write the foster mom at email@example.com to find out more about this perfect little girl!
Updated bio 5/15/21
Madelyn Grace, or Maddie as she likes to be called, is a pure delight! She just came to her foster home and is the sweetest girl you ever saw. She has big brown eyes that she knows how to work to her benefit, and they just might melt your heart. She is a very quiet little girl and would be well suited to an apartment. Her favorite activity is to be loved, held, and petted and told she is a "pretty girl". Her health is excellent. She is up to date on all medical needs and is microchipped. She likes a calm atmosphere and would be best suited to a quiet adult home. She is crate trained (and really loves her crate), leash trained, and housebroken. She will also use a potty pad. If you want to give Madelyn all your lovin', please submit an application on our website, and we will get back to you.
Madison is a sweet yorkie girl who is 14 yrs who weighs 7lbs. She just celebrated her 14th birthday on March 7th. She is quiet and timid but as started to come out of her shell while staying with foster mom. She is adorable and once she gets to know you she loves to be held and petted. She is in very good health for her age. She sleeps alone on her bed not a big fan of the bed... however we think that could also be due to other doggies in the bed... she gets along with all doggies but she like her alone time. She will run out the door when opened and be ready to go with you anywhere she does not like to be left behind. Maddie does not bark a lot seems to only bark when the other dogs bark at home. She also has some anxiety which causes her to pant heavily at times especially when left alone. Maddie would do best in a quiet home. She gets along with everyone but doesn't like a lot of loud noise and hectic house this can increase her anxiety. She is the perfect dog that you could take anywhere. If you feel your home would be a perfect fit please fill out an application
Madison is a sweet yorkie girl who 13 yrs old who weighs 7 lbs. She is very quiet and timid but will follow you around watching what you are doing.

She will run out the door when opened and be ready to go with you anywhere she does not like to be left behind. Maddie does not bark a lot seems to only bark when the other dogs bark at home. She also has some anxiety which causes her to pant heavily at times. She loves attention but once the attention is finished she will return to her normal activities.

Initial Bio 11/13/2020: Sweet Madison (Maddie) recently arrived. She has the sweetest personality. She loves to follow you everywhere and if you would pack her that is even better in her book. front of a door or window where the sun can shine in on her. So far the only time she barks a lot when she is left alone or away from her foster family. barks. She would do best in a home where some was available full time...She likes to be your main focus of attention. She loves to ride in the car... So she would travel well. She will be going to the dogter very soon to get an overall check-up.

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.
UPDATED BIO 04/05/2021: Ava Simone has been in her UYR foster home for 4 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 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
To date we've spent $1550.44 on Ava Simone's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1895 in donations.

I can see clearly now
Lucky Florida Boy
This beautiful Silky Terrier/Yorkie mix is Lucky Florida Boy. He is about 6 years old and weighs a perfect 15 pounds. Please consider donating to the costs of his eye surgery which restored his vision - read the update below. Lucky is being fostered in Boca Raton, FL.
Dogs fostered in Florida will need to be adopted within the state of Florida.

UPDATED BIO 05/13/2021: Lucky had his check-up and his eye is doing great and he is medically cleared. He has no more restrictions hooray! It has been a long journey to get him to this place, but it is all been worth it. He is so happy and thats the best part of this story. Lucky has a follow-up appointment with the doggie eye doctor on July 12th, and if cleared for adoption, he will be ready to go to his forever home.
Lucky is chasing after toys, running up the stairs, and having fun with the other dogs. He is an absolute pleasure. He still loves being around people and is so funny. It has been several months now and still no accidents in the house and sweet Lucky continues to be very well mannered. He is eating very well and his coat is coming in nicely. Due to the fact that Lucky has glaucoma in one of his eyes, he will require one eye drop daily for his glaucoma for the rest of his life. The monthly cost of this RX medication is approximately $40 - $50 per month.
Lucky does well with other dogs and loves to play but Foster Mom feels he would be happier being the only dog in the home. If disturbed by the other dogs when sleeping, and only when he is sleeping, he gets agitated. This is likely due to the fact that his vision was very impaired prior to coming into UYR, and blind dogs must be approached cautiously. Some dogs sense medical and/or mobility issues (such as blindness) in other dogs, but others dont. This could potentially change now that Luckys vision has been restored, but may not. For this reason, Lucky needs to be the only dog in the home. Lucky has also let Foster Mom know that he does not like to be crated, so he needs to go into an adoptive home that understands this. Lucky has not been around children, but he is such an easy-going dog that Foster Mom thinks he would probably be great with mature children (12+ years old).
Here's what Lucky had to say: I am going to be ready for my furever home in July, so maybe you could put in an application to make me a part of your family? If not, maybe you could donate a few dollars to help UYR with my surgery costs. I am so lucky that so many people have donated toward my surgery and that UYR spent all of those dollars to help me see again, but we really do need more donations to completely cover my surgery. Foster mommy says I am worth it! Lucky out!
If you want a great companion or great family dog for a house with mature kids, Lucky is one of the most well-mannered, intelligent and funny dogs that Foster Mom has had.
PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING BEFORE APPLYING TO ADOPT LUCKY:
- He needs to be the only dog in the home.
- He does not like to be crated, so his adoptive home must understand this restriction.
- Lucky's RX eye medications will cost approximately $40 - $50 and he will need these meds for life.
UPDATED BIO 03/30/2021: Lucky Florida Boy (or Lucky as we call him) had successful cataract surgery on 02/22 and also endo laser treatment in the same eye since he is at high risk for glaucoma. His surgery was successful and he has sight restored in his right eye. Since his surgery, Lucky has become a fun playful dog again, but sadly he is not allowed to play right now. Excessive movements cause him to hemorrhage in his eye and he therefore has to be kept calm which is not easy. He really wants to play with the other dogs or with any toys (or objects that he thinks is a toy) that he finds. Lucky is currently on heavy sedation while he is recuperating from the hemorrhage, but you would never know it. Foster mom says she would not call him an energetic dog, but if the other dogs play, he wants to be right in the mix.
Lucky still requires eyedrops three times a day and eventually will only require one eye drop once a day in both eyes for his glaucoma this will be for the rest of his life. He is very tolerant of receiving the drops and administering them could not be any easier. What a sweet boy and a real joy in his foster home. He is a great companion and wants to be around his people. He loves sitting on the couch next to someone or lying in bed - he loves to cuddle. Lucky is fine sleeping on a pillow or blanket on the floor next to the bed, but prefers to be in bed where he will not move for the entire night.
Lucky is definitely an alpha dog as he has no problems pushing the other dogs out of his way when he wants something. He would love having a companion dog in his forever home that wouldnt mind his alpha personality. He has never shown any aggression to the other dogs, the cat or with people. He is not aggressive around food or toys, although is not allowed to play with them until his eye is fully healed. Lucky is well-mannered and walks well on a leash. He also knows several commands like stay, wait & come. He enjoys walks and is a very good eater. He enjoys going out first thing in the morning and gets really excited to get his treat once he is done. Lucky is not an anxious dog and noises and lightening do not bother him. He is easy to bathe and is really no trouble at all.
Lucky has not been around children since he has been in his foster home, but he is such an easy dog he would probably be fine with kids 16 years old or older with previous dog experience. He is also very smart and learns quickly. BONUS: He is house-trained! He does not like to be crated, so we are looking for a forever home where he will not be crated for longer than several hours. PLEASE NOTE: Luckys next vet appointment is on 05/06 and if he gets released by the vet, he will be ready for adoption at that time. This special fella is so worth waiting for
NOTE FROM FOSTER MOM: It did not take long for us to see how loving and special Lucky was and the more time we spend with him, the more we love his funny behaviors and cleverness. He is loving, but not needy. He is clever, yet funny. He likes to play, but will stay by your side for hours keeping you company. He is a great companion for people and great with dogs that will allow him to be the alpha.
02/22/2021: UPDATE ON LUCKY'S CATARACT SURGERY! Lucky has had his surgery and is recuperating nicely at home. The costs of the cataract surgery for Lucky, including the endo laser treatment in that same eye because he is also high risk for glaucoma, is approximately $3,000. Please consider donating so that UYR can continue to help other little dogs like Lucky have the gift of sight.
UPDATED BIO 2/11/2021. PLEASE HELP US GIVE LUCKY THE GIFT OF SIGHT.
Lucky is just the sweetest young fellow. Despite being totally blind he is adjusting to his foster home with two other dogs and a cat. He tries so hard to be part of their pack. At only 6 years old, he loves to play, and wants to play with the two other dogs and do whatever they do. But he can't. When they start to run around and play Lucky tries to follow and do what they do, but he can't see where they are and what they are doing.
This happy boy is so sweet and loving. He wants to be everyone's friend. He loves people and other animals. No one is a stranger to Lucky. It breaks his foster mom's heart to see this happy boy bump into things when he tries to play. He loves his toys and even tries to play fetch. He can sometimes sniff out the toy, other times he gets frustrated and gives up looking. He never gets angry or upset,he just continues on being the loving, happy boy he is.
Lucky loves his people and loves being with them. Lucky is perfect in almost every way. He is house trained, a good eater, and a good car rider. His foster parents have yet to hear him even bark. He likes his belly rubs. He is great company and loves to sit with his people and give them lots of love. This really sweet, loving, well- mannered, young boy will be a great family member for the right family.
BUT WAIT THERE IS MORE! Lucky had wonderful news from the veterinary eye specialist. She is sure with cataract surgery she can restore the vision in Luckys right eye! We couldnt have asked for better news. We are so happy for Lucky. HOWEVER, giving Lucky his sight back won't come cheap. The cost of the cataract surgery for Lucky, including the endo laser treatment in that same eye because he is also high risk for glaucoma, will cost close to $3000.
How can you put a cost on something as priceless as your vision? BUT there is a cost and we are asking you to help us give this priceless gift to Lucky. Lucky wants so badly to play, to run around, to be one of the gang, and YOU can help make that happen. Whatever you can give will be greatly appreciated. Nothing is too small. Lucky and United Yorkie Rescue are asking you to open your hearts and your wallets and help us pay for his surgery and give Lucky the GIFT OF SIGHT. Lucky is ready for his Valentine's Day miracle. WITH YOUR HELP WE CAN DO IT AND LUCKY WILL SEE AGAIN
Initial Bio 1/30/21 Lucky is such a sweet, beautiful Silky Terrier/Yorkie mix. He was surrendered to another rescue by his owner because she could no longer care for his special needs. Lucky is vision impaired, but do not let that fool you. He does great. If you didn't know he couldn't see well, you would never suspect it. After a few weeks with the other rescue, they realized that this fellow needed to go to a rescue that is more familiar with Silky Terriers and Yorkies, so today Lucky was lucky enough to become a United Yorkie Rescue dog.
His foster mom said he is very sweet. He was very good in the car. He sat in the car quietly just "looking" around. When he arrived at his foster home, he immediately took to exploring the house. Lucky will be seeing the regular vet for a well doggie check. He may need a dental. He will also need a recheck on the skin issues he was treated for recently.
The last vet Lucky saw said he had a mature cataract in his eye; however, we are not sure about the other eye. That eye also has a cataract but it may be an immature one. We plan on getting a consult with a veterinary ophthalmologist to see if we can save his vision in at least one eye. Lucky is not even 7 years old. He has so many years of living left. We hope surgery can give him those years with eyes that see.
If we are able to save Lucky's vision his surgery will cost United Yorkie Rescue a great deal of money. But we know he is worth it. If you also believe that sweet Lucky deserves to see please consider making a donation to him to help us afford the cost of giving Lucky his sight back. Let's make Lucky truly lucky and do all we can to help him see again.
At this time, we believe that Lucky may need an adult only home due to his limited vision.
To date we've spent $4095 on Lucky Florida Boy's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $3695 in donations.

I am happy that my foster mommy is taking care of me.
My skin is itching me all the time. Soon I will feel better.
Pretty Prada is a sweet 7 year old Yorkie girl. She is about 9 pounds. Prada is being fostered in Dunedin, FL.
Dogs fostered in Florida will need to be adopted within the state of Florida.
Initial Bio 6/13/21: Pretty little Prada just arrived at her foster home today. Her foster mom said she already appears to be a little angel. She is a bundle of sweetness. Her former mommy had her since she was a puppy, but found she could no longer give her the attention and care Prada needed. Prada will see the vet very soon for her much needed exam and recommended treatments. Unfortunately, Prada has not seen a vet since 2015 so she is in need of much medical care including all vaccinations, heartworm and fecal checks, a major dental where we are sure she will lose many teeth, blood will be checked for any issues, and she will get medical treatment for her skin. She has some severe hair loss on her back end due to a serious flea infestation. Although the fleas were killed with a Capstar as soon as we got Prada, we expect that she will need additional help and treatment and relief for her still itchy skin. The fleas are gone, but her skin is very irritated. As soon as Prada has her visit with her vet there will be an update on her health.
Prada is known to be a real snuggler, loves to chase lizards and squirrels, and enjoys playing with her toys. She may be house-trained. She does well walking on the leash. She will bark when she sees another dog when being walked but will quiet down quickly. She loves her car rides and does great in the car. She gets along with other dogs and children and likes to sleep under the bed or in her crate with the door left open. Prada seems to have already adapted well to her new environment in her foster home.
If you would like to show Prada that she deserves a helping hand after years of neglect, United Yorkie Rescue would very much appreciate any donations towards Prada's care. Every dollar helps us to help dogs like Prada to regain their health while getting a new lease on life.
Stay tuned for more updates and pictures on sweet Prada.
To date we've spent $0 on Prada's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.
For more information, contact my foster parents at: email@example.com.

UPDATED BIO 04/27/2021: Hi, Rawling here, checking in with another post-surgery update! I went back to the eye dogtor recently and she says I am doing great! Yay! I am only getting two drops in my eye every day and maybe when I have my next appointment on 05/11, I may be able to stop one of them. I will need the RX medication Ketorolac for life 3x a week and the cost will be only a few dollars a month.
I like to play with the big doggies in the "big dog" park and pretend I'm big, too. I also really like to sunbathe in the backyard. One more thing I have discovered toys and think I may really like playing with them. I have learned a few commands like sit, up, walk, outside and car - I get so excited when we get to go in the car! Foster mommy made me a little doggy bed under her big bed where I like to go play and hide - I have my own little man cave! Foster mommy takes me to lots of cool places, and everywhere we go, everyone tells me how handsome I am! I can't help it - I was just born adorable.
Foster mommy says that I am quite the gentleman. I have great manners and I never ever bark, unless I see another dog I want to play with. And I love to snuggle and give kisses. If you want a quiet, loving dog choose me! I will be a loyal and loving companion! I walk great on the leash, and love to have long walks in the mornings and evenings. I have learned how to sit and now I am working on the paw command. Foster mommy says I am a quick learner! I love having my foster mommy with me, and I really would love a furever home where someone is home with me most of the day. I would like another small doggy friend - not a cat friend - in the house to play with.
I am going to be ready for my furever home in June, so maybe you could put in an application to make me a part of your family? If not, maybe you could give a few dollars to help UYR with my surgery costs. I am so lucky that so many people have donated toward my surgery and that UYR spent all of those dollars to help me see again, but we really do need more donations to completely cover my surgery. Foster mommy says I am worth it!
UPDATED BIO 04/12/2021: Hi, Rawling here, checking in with another post-surgery update. I went back to the eye dogtor recently and she says I am doing great! I am finally out of that uncomfortable cone, and the dogtor even says I don't need as many eye drops anymore. Yay! Foster mommy even gets to take me back to the dog park now so that I can play with my friends. She says I bounce around like a little bunny rabbit, and sometimes I bark at the big doggies in the "big dog" park and pretend I'm big, too. I also really like to sunbathe in the backyard. I got my first bath in 5 weeks recently and boy-oh-boy did that feel good. Foster mommy said that my hair is growing back around my eye hooray.
One really cool thing is that I can go up and down the stairs with ease now. I'm not that into toys, but I have started to play with socks a little bit, and even a shower poof. I have learned a few commands like sit, up, walk, outside and car - I get so excited when we get to go in the car! Foster mommy made me a little doggy bed under her big bed where I like to go play and hide - I have my own little man cave!

UPDATED BIO 03/03/2021: Hi, Rawling here, checking in with a post-surgery update! I went to the eye dogtor today, and she said I am doing great and recovering nicely from my surgery. She said that my eye is healing really well, and I am so excited that I can see clearly again! I dont like the cone, but hopefully I dont have to wear it much longer. I am so lucky that I get to run, jump and play like the other doggies now. Without the surgery, I might have gone blind, but thanks to UYR and my wonderful rescue angels, I am able to see again. I know that UYR spent a lot of dollars on my surgery, and they said they need more rescue angels to help with the cost. Can you help, even just a little? No amount is too small - every bit helps! Because of my rescue angels, I will have a wonderful life of clear vision, and your donation will enable UYR to continue to save other doggies just like me.
I have settled in well in my foster home. I am eating well and I have gained a few ounces, which foster mommy said I needed. I look so handsome and healthy now! My foster mommy takes me to all sorts of neat places. I love to be in the car and check everything out. One of my favorite spots is by the lake, so that I can watch the duckies and the jet skis on the water. I especially love watching the water and the waves!
Foster mommy says that I am quite the gentleman I have great manners and I never ever bark, unless I see another dog I want to play with. And I love to snuggle and give kisses.

I also think I would like another small doggy friend in the house to play with.
If you think I might be a good fit for you, please fill out an application! I am almost healed and I am so excited to find my furever home soon. Could it be yours?
UPDATE 02/22/2021: UPDATE ON RAWLING'S CATARACT SURGERY! Rawling had his surgery today and is recuperating nicely at home. The costs of the cataract surgery for Rawling is $2,000. Please consider donating so that UYR can continue to help other little dogs like Rawling have the gift of sight.
UPDATED BIO 02/12/2021: PLEASE HELP US GIVE RAWLING THE GIFT OF SIGHT.
Hi everyone, Rawling here! So many nice people have asked about me, so I wanted to give everyone an update. I am UYR foster dog Lucky's son and my blindness is the result of unscrupulous breeding. Lucky and I are both much happier in separate homes.
I love my foster home and my foster mom. I have lots of yummy food, toys and a big, soft bed to sleep in at night. I love to be snuggled up with foster mommy on the bed and the couch, so I need to be in a home where I am allowed to be on the furniture. One thing I really love is belly scratches. Foster mommy is so proud of me because I always do my business outside and haven't had any accidents in the house. I am energetic and athletic, and I love to go for long walks and explore. Foster mommy has taken me to the park, the beach and downtown, and I love it all! I ride great in the car, and I even made some new friends at the dog park. I would love to be with a family that wants to spend lots of time with me and take me on adventures.
I came into UYR with cataracts in both of my eyes so my vision is limited. This is something that I inherited when I was just a baby, and I have lost the vision in my left eye. I really want to run, jump and play just like any other dog with perfect vision. Thanks to the nice people at UYR, I was able to go to the Doggie Eye Doctor yesterday and she says that she can only fix my left eye so that I will be able to see clearly out of it. I am so excited that I will get a chance to see clearly again like the other doggies. I heard the nice vet say that its going to cost a lot of money (over $2,000!), but foster mommy said that that she and all the yorkie angels out there will work very hard to raise the money to give me the gift of vision. The nice doggie eye doctor also mentioned that without the surgery, I could be totally blind within a year. I'm only 4-1/2 years old and foster mom and the vet said that I deserve to have vision since I have a long life ahead of me. I offered foster mommy my biscuits to help pay for it, but she said that UYR needs dollars.
Will you be one of my rescue angels so that I can see again? I am still a young pup with so much life ahead of me, and I cant wait to have clear vision back so I can have many adventures ahead! If you donate, I will send you a special thank you card .. foster mom said that the gift of sight will be an amazing way to show how much people care about me and that there are lots of yorkie and silky terrier angels out there who will be reading this and will want to help me have vision. Whatever you can give will be greatly appreciated. No amount is too small. Thank you from the bottom of my itty bitty heart. XOXOXOXO from Rawling.
Initial bio 2/2/21 Rawling is a sweet, beautiful Silky Terrier/Yorkie mix. He was surrendered to another rescue by his owner because he could no longer care for his special needs. Rawling is vision impaired, however it is possible he can see with the one eye that may not have a mature cataract. He gets around just great. If you didn't know he couldn't see as well as most dogs his age, you would never suspect he had some vision issues. After a few weeks with the other rescue, they realized that this fellow needed to go to a rescue that is more familiar with Silky Terriers and Yorkies, so today Rawling was lucky enough to become a United Yorkie Rescue dog.
His foster mom said he is very sweet. He was very good in the car. He sat in the car quietly just checking everything out all around him. When he arrived at his foster home, he immediately took to exploring the house. He tried to play with the resident dog, who didn't want to play with him at all. We think Rawling is a playful dog and might like to have a playmate. He also would love a fenced yard. With his vision a fenced yard would be something that could be important to him. We will know more about both those things as he settles into his foster home.
We will be getting a consult with a veterinary ophthalmologist to see if we Rawling is a candidate for cataract surgery. We want him to keep his vision in at least one eye. Rawling is not even 5 years old. He has so many years of living left. We hope surgery can give him those years with eyes that see.
If we are able to save Rawling's vision his surgery will cost United Yorkie Rescue a great deal of money. But we know he is worth it. If you also believe that adorable Rawling deserves to always be able to see, please consider making a donation to him to help us afford the cost of giving this gift to Rawling. Let's make Rawling a lucky pop and do all we can to help him see for the rest of his life.
At this time, we believe that Rawling may need an adult only home due to his possible limited vision.
To date we've spent $3064.2 on Rawling's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $2310 in donations.

4/2/21 update - Annie is doing well and is just starting a new prescription to see if it reduces the amount of syncopal episodes she is having. While she no longer fully passes out, several times a day at regular intervals she still does have trouble standing and will sway and try to regain her composure, but they still only last a few seconds. It is recommended that Annie not be spayed or have a dental due to her multiple heart conditions. Again, Annie needs to be an only dog in a very quiet household where she can enjoy life as a couch potato with someone who will spoil her.
1/27/21 update: Annie has been doing great in her foster home. She was put on medicine by the cardiologist to help with her syncopal episodes, and she went an entire month without having any. Within the past couple days, the episodes have returned, so we are looking into possibly increasing her dose, as maybe she has built up a tolerance to the dose that she is currently on. Other than that, her hair has fully grown back in, she has gained all weight needed to be a healthy size, and she is a very happy dog. Since feeling better, Annie has become very sassy and decided that she is very dog selective. She tolerates most of other fosters at the house, and one of the resident dogs. However, she has chosen one resident dog that she has decided to try and attack all the time. For this reason, Annie needs to be the only dog in the home, as we could not guarantee who she would get along with, and she really is a loner and wants all the attention to herself anyway. Annie also cannot do any stairs, so she would need a ranch home, and need to be carried out to the yard. She does not require a fenced yard, but she cannot go for walks due to her heart condition she can only walk around for about 5 minutes at a time before she gets tired and needs to go inside. Annie needs a quiet, calm, home and would do great with someone who is retired and looking for a little lap dog to dote on all day. Please contact her foster mom with any questions regarding adoption.
Update 12/1/20: Annie was doing so well until Thanksgiving night she had a serious setback that we did not expect. She started fainting repeatedly, approximately every 10 minutes at one point. I rushed her to the ER and she was diagnosed with a severe heart arrhythmia that caused her fainting (syncopal episodes) and I was told she needed to see a cardiologist for further testing. The cardiologist was booked, so we made the first available appointment for Dec. 22nd, but the cardiologist called us on Monday, 11/30 and said given the fact that she was continuing to faint several times a day, we needed to rush her down to his clinic 2 hours away and get her admitted through the ER there.
So off we went and I sat in the car for about 6 hours while the doctors tested and examined her. It is determined she has sick sinus syndrome (SSS), along with degenerative valve disease. She has been started on medication to hopefully reduce or stop the syncopal episodes, but the only true cure for SSS is a pacemaker. Given her age and multiple heart problems, we are waiting to see how well the medicine works before putting her through an extensive and risky surgery. The ER visit and diagnostic testing with the cardiologist were extremely expensive so if you can find it in your heart to donate to Annie's vet bills, please consider a donation to help UYR with this sweet girls care.
Update 11/6/20: Hi everyone, Annie here! Foster Mom (FM) said I could talk this time since I'm starting to feel better! The amazing Dogtor was able to sneak me in a whole week earlier than my scheduled appointment. First, I have gained about a pound since being with FM, which is amazing! I eat like a horse and she said my ribs have filled out a lot. I am also heartworm negative! I also have a huge UTI, which was not really a surprise to FM. A couple more serious issues are that my red blood count and hemoglobin are extremely low. Not low enough to need a transfusion, because they are making more at this point, but we need to keep watch. Also, my liver is inflamed and that's a big concern. However, I have massive infection throughout my body so I am on high dose antibiotics to help all of the infections I have. I have infection in my mouth from my rotten teeth, of course my UTI, and serious skin infections. Dogtor said I need to come back after 3 weeks on the antibiotics and get repeat labs. If my liver values are not improved, we may need to do an ultrasound to see why it's inflamed. But the antibiotics will clear up my UTI, and will make my mouth feel better for a while. Dogtor also wants to hold off doing my dental and spay until I'm a little healthier and heavier to make sure I will be okay during the surgery, so I will be staying with FM for a while and that is just fine with me she feeds me a lot! I'll update again after my next labs in three weeks. Thanks for all your love and support! Love, Annie
Initial Bio 10/29/20: Annie is a 10 year old (guestimate), vaccinated, very emaciated yorkie/silky mix who was pulled by UYR from a St. Louis animal control. She was found abandoned by animal control in a field. It is clear she has been neglected for some time, as she came in with matted hair and had to be shaved, has some hair loss on her ears, paws, and tail, and is arthritic. She also has dental disease.
Despite her neglect, Annie is a very sweet, loving dog and gets along well with the small, resident dog of the house. She follows her foster mom everywhere and just wants to be loved.
Annie's first vet appointment is scheduled in almost two weeks, and hopefully she can put on some weight between now and then. She will definitely need bloodwork to see if she will be able to tolerate anesthesia for her dental and spay. Please stay tuned to learn more about sweet Annie!
To date we've spent $1757.35 on Annie IL's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1550 in donations.

Charlie is a 13year old Yorkie Boy who weighs 12pounds and is being fostered near Elizabethtown ,KY.
THANK YOU TO CHARLIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!
Cera Beth Brockman
Updated Bio 5/20/21: Charlie is a sweet, sweet pup. He loves being the apple of his owner's eye. He has come out of his shell in recent weeks. He love sleeping with foster mom and dad, as well as his foster siblings. He enjoys meal time, and looks forward to treat time.
He went to the vet, and it was determined he was in good health. The only exception is his teeth. He had poor dental hygiene, and as a result his teeth are infected with green pus. He is currently on an antibiotic and will be going in for a dental on the 20th. The vet expressed concern that he will lose a majority if his teeth.
Charlie would do well being the only pet. He does suffer from separation anxiety. He is usually pretty good about letting us know that he needs to potty; however, that goes by the wayside once we leave the house. He will need a person who is home the majority of the day.
Initial Bio 4/13/21.
Charlie was surrendered by his owners who led a super busy life and was not able to give him the attention he needs during his Senior Years. They felt terrible leaving him at the house all by himself while they worked long hours and had activities with their Children. They want Charlie to never feel lonely again. So far Charlie seems super easy going. He rides perfectly in a car and doesnt seem to meet a stranger. He gets along great with other dogs and walks well on a leash. Please stay tuned for updates as he will be seeing the Dogtor soon for a Senior Checkup. Then he will be ready for his new home.
To date we've spent $2411.67 on KY Charlie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $200 in donations.

THANK YOU TO LEVI'S RESCUE ANGELS!

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. If your interested in adopting please fill out an application.

Updated Bio: 5/21/21 Paris is a sweetheart who enjoys her routine at Foster Moms house. She is a happy girl. She loves to explore the yard, eat her food and loves being held and petted by anyone. She sleeps with Foster Mom and has never fell off the bed even though she is blind. She has been blind for a long time so her other senses help her get around very good. Paris also has her favorite doggie beds she likes to lounge around in during the day while Foster Mom is at work. She gets along well with the other dogs in the house, but she keeps to herself mostly, she wants to be with or near her person. Paris has a few medical conditions that have to be treated with medications. Sounds like a lot to keep up with but all are affordable medications and last awhile since she is a tiny girl. I dont want to discourage anyone from adopting her, but want everyone to be aware of what her needs will be. One of her eyes has a slipped lens which is common with advanced cataracts. She has to receive 1drop 2x a day in that eye to prevent pain and inflammation. The other eye on has to have 1 drop 1x a day. Paris has to go back every three months to the eye Dogtor right now to keep a check on her eye pressures. We dont want her to get glaucoma. She has a grade 2/3 heart murmur. She also has Pulmonary Hypertension and takes two medications 1 3xa day and the other 1x a day for her condition. She also has had seizures and was admitted to an ER for a few days. Due to her heart condition we decided not to put her under for an MRI to figure out what may have caused the seizures and instead she will be treated with seizure medication for life. She takes 1 pill 3x a day for this. Paris has not had another seizure since being on the Seizure Medication. She does need a dental but unless an emergency with her teeth occurs, due to her heart issues, she cannot be put under anesthesia. Paris can still be someones companion for a few years. As long as her medical conditions are being monitored. United Yorkie Rescue and Foster Mom want to thank all who have donated to her special care. We couldnt save these babies without financial support. If you would like to donate to her care please click on her PayPal Donate button underneath. If you have any questions about her or are interested in adopting sweet Paris please email Foster Mom at email@example.com.
Updated Bio: 4/28/21 Paris has been in her Foster Home now since December. Her former elderly owners could not afford to give her the care she needed so they surrendered her so her medical needs would be met. Although Paris has a few medical issues, she still enjoys life. Paris recently had a recheck with the eye Dogtor, due to her advanced Cataracts, she needs a recheck every three months right now to keep a close watch on her eye pressures. We dont want her to suffer from Glaucoma. One of her eyes has a slipped lens which is common with advanced cataracts. She has to receive drops 2x a day in that eye to prevent pain and inflammation. Her other eye only has to only receive 1 drop a day to prevent pain and inflammation. Paris has a grade 2/3 heart murmur. She also has Pulmonary Hypertension and takes two medications 3x a day for her condition. She also has had seizures and was admitted to an ER for a few days. Due to her heart condition we decided not to put her under for an MRI to figure out what may have caused the seizures and instead will be treated with seizure medication for life. As we age medical conditions come and we just have to deal with them. The same is true for dogs. They didnt ask for this as humans do not. It doesnt mean they dont need love and care or should be put down. Paris enjoys her life. She loves to be cuddled, loves kisses and enjoys breakfast and dinner time. She takes her medication faithfully 3x a day with peanut butter no problem. She also receives her eye drops with ease. She also doesnt mind wearing clothes as it keeps her warm and gives her security. She has accepted bath time but is still not a fan of grooming and can bite. She gets along ok with other dogs as long as they do not get in her space. Paris enjoys exploring the yard in the warm sun but wants to know your close so she feels safe and knows she isnt lost and alone. She does need a dental but unless an emergency with her teeth occurs, due to her heart issues, she cannot be put under anesthesia. United Yorkie Rescue and Foster Mom want to thank all who have donated to her special care. We couldnt save these babies without financial support. If you would like to donate to her care please go to www.uyr.us and click the left hand tab looking for love. Scroll down to Pariss Bio in Tennessee and click on her PayPal Donate button underneath.

Updated Bio 3/19/21:

Paris had an Echo of her heart last Friday and it was determined that she has pulmonary hypertension and a severe heart murmur. It could be age related . Paris has had seizures, since being in her Foster Home, and was admitted to the ER. They decided to treat for seizures for life and the heart issues. If we put her under for an MRI due to her heart issues it is extremely risky. Paris is now back on her regular food, after being hospitalized,
she only would only eat baby food afer coming home. Paris is temperamental. Paris will bite during baths or grooming or if you do something she doesnt like. But who can blame her she cant see.

Paris is such a sweetie pie! She had her eye Dogtor appointment and she has advanced Cataracts her lenses are slipping due to that. She is on an ibuprofen eye drops to keep them from being irritated and she will need to take that for life. She has a recheck on her eyes February 9th. She has her echo of her heart on February 12th. We need to see what grade heart murmur she has before putting her under for her dental. Her little mouth is full of rotten teeth. Her hair and skin are healthy and her ears. She loves to be dressed up and wants you to hold her and cuddle. She eats well and gets along with other dogs as long as they give her space. She has been blind a long time but her hearing is great as well as her since of smell. She will do great in a home where someone is home most of the time. She is potty trained but you need to make sure to take her out on a regular basis. She spins to go so you know when she is about to potty.

Updated Bio 1/06/21
Paris had her Dogtors appointment this afternoon and she is now up to date on her yearly shots and has tested Heartworm and Fecal negative which is very good news. As you can see from her picture she has severe cataracts in both eyes, one of her eyes has a slipped lense. She is being referred to they eye Dogtor to see what may need to be done to help this as it can cause Glaucoma. Her Bloodwork came back all good but she does have a Kidney Infection which is being treated with an Antibiotic. The Dogtor heard a Heart Murmur and she will need An Echo to see what grade and if any issues before proceeding with her much needed dental. Paris has now been in her Foster Home now for three weeks and she is eating and sleeping well. She gets along with other dogs but due to her sight issues she doesnt like a hyper dog getting in her space it scares her. She enjoys being held and loved on. She sleeps on a pillow by Foster mom at night. Paris likes to explore around the front fenced in yard. She rides great in a car. Paris is potty trained but will have accidents if not taking out on a regular basis. She would do great with a family who is home most or all the time. She would also be a great dog to travel with. Due to her small size no children under 12 and will need to be watched around small children visiting. She can be snippy when startled and when she is being bathed and groomed. Could be because of her sight issues or just cause she is older and grumpy and doesnt like to do what she doesnt want lol! She doesnt mind wearing clothes and she loves lazing around in a doggie bed during the day. If you are interested in this sweetheart please fill out an application or email foster mom with more questions. If you would like to donate to her care for her medical issues please click the paypal button underneath this bio. Thank you all so much!

Tank is a 1 and a 1/2 year old Yorkie/ Terrier mix who weighs 24 pounds and is being fostered near Ashland City, TN
Updated Bio 6/6/21: Tank is a super sweet, smart, gentle young doggie. He is crate trained and will go to the door to go potty. He is still wearing a Belly Band around the house as he was just neautered and still marks. It will take about 6 months for his horomones subside so the urge to mark will go away. Tank is up to date on his shots, microchipped, had a dental and has been neutered. He is a completely healthy young boy. Tank is super gentle and play bites very easy. The only time Foster Mom has seen him be a bit aggressive is around food time. Foster mom has a houseful of doggies and she thinks he is just guarding his food. He is learning that is not accepted but for right bow he eats in his crate which doesnt bother him one bit. He is not aggressive while his humans are eating at the table, but is learning that he cannot jump up and beg while they are eating. Foster Mom believes he can easily be trained to do tricks or agility. He rides perfectly in a car, no car sickness. Tank was surrendered by his owners sister because his owners passed away a week apart due to Covid-19. He came into rescue with two other dogs from the same situation. One has already been adopted and the other is adoption pending. Tank is still looking for a home to call his own. If you are interested in adopting him please email Foster Mom at email@example.com.
Initial Bio 5/15/21: Tank is a super sweet young boy who is all puppy. He had his Vet check and is now up to date on all shots. He will be neutered on the 25th and after he heals up he will be ready for adoption. His owners died due to Covid one week apart. He came from the same family as Sam Elliot and Coco Puff. He is a larger Yorkie/Terrier Mix with a long body and a full beautiful tail. He wears a belly band while in the house due to his marking but that should subside after he gets neutered. He stays in a crate while foster mom is at work (she comes home for lunch and lets him go potty) so he doesnt chew up the house. He will bark for about 15 minutes then he settles down when he knows your gone. He has a lot of love and playful affection to give. Please fill out an application or email foster mom with more questions if you would like to adopt this sweetheart.
To date we've spent $519.06 on Tank's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Meet Biggie Smalls, a tiny 3 lbs, 10+ year old senior Yorkie being fostered in Fort Worth, TX. Due to COVID, only Texas applicants will be considered.
THANK YOU TO BIGGIE SMALLS' RESCUE ANGELS!
Melissa Combes, Karen McKeand, Alex LeBlanc, Barbara Burgess, Rebecca Myres, Ellen Chokreff, Angie Cagle, Yvette Vangeloff
INITIAL BIO: 05/15/21. Look at this little 3lb 7-8yr old "Biggie"! Biggie Smalls found himself at a nearby shelter where he was very frightened. He was swooped up and taken into another foster home where he waited out his hold. This little guy was extremely fractious and you could tell he had not had much human interaction in his life or the interaction he had had was not the best. During his hold, Biggie slowly allowed the touch of a human hand which has now led to loving his face and head rubs, to loving being held in just 10 days! Emotionally speaking, I truly think this small munchkin will be an absolute angel by the time he is ready for his furever. He looks for his humans and wants nothing more than to be close and loved.
Medically, he has all of his immunizations, a neuter and a beginning to his dental. Due to his small size and how quickly he loses body temp (noted during his first dental), he will need another dental to hopefully complete his medical needs. He will be scheduled this next week. Biggie does have dry eye in his right eye which will require a daily drop. This may resolve as it could be an environmental issue due to his horrible condition on intake, but its an easy fix with the drops if not.
Biggie Smalls' best forever home, would be a home without small children due to his very small size. It would be a bonus if his adopter would have knowledge of the breed and also be able to be home with this tiny nugget to give him what he was failed at in his prior life. If you feel you have that home to offer this little man, please complete the application below. As always, know that these babies always need donations for their medical care. If possible, we would love any donation you may wish to offer for these babies' care at www.uyr.us
To date we've spent $1364.08 on Biggie Smalls's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $490 in donations.

Meet Buster Brown, a 12 year young, Yorkie boy at 16 pounds who is being fostered in Azle, TX. Due to COVID, only Texas applicants will be considered.
THANK YOU TO BUSTER'S RESCUE ANGELS!
Susan Walker, Patsy Beatty
Update 5/17/21: Buster Brown is still looking for his forever home. He is now a svelte 16 pounds, from 23 pounds, with foster mom feeding him a prescription dog food for weight loss and maintenance. A potential adopter will need to continue with a prescription weight loss food so he can keep his trim figure. Now that he is trim, he is active, and curious, and does not act like a senior. In fact, he tries does a pretty good job of keeping up with the younger dogs in his family. Buster Brown loves being with other dogs and gets along with all of them. He is mostly house trained but he can let you know that he really does not like when you leave him at home by tinkling on a the floor a little. Patience, reassurance, and consistency will help Buster with that little habit. Buster Brown follows foster mom everywhere, lays in the home office when foster mom works and lays beside her on the sofa. This guy is older so he sometimes needs help getting up on the sofa. Long walks for this guy is too much. Buster Brown needs a home to life out his life with a retired person, preferably with a dog or two. This boys is sweet, loving and likes being with his people. If you think you can provide the perfect home for Buster, go to www.uyr.us and fill out an adoption application.
Initial Bio 2-15-21: Meet Buster Brown, a 17 pound, 13 year old boy who will melt your heart with all his gentleness and preciousness! Sadly, his owner, who has had him since he was a puppy, made the most loving and difficult decision to surrender him to United Yorkie Rescue after she became very ill and was in the hospital on several occasions. Buster is a bit overweight and foster mom has him on Royal Canine Saiety for weight loss. He has lost about 4 or 5 pounds! Buster Brown has low vision and is a little hard of hearing but with the help of the other dogs in his foster home, he gets around just fine. He loves people, and loves the other fur brothers in the house.
This senior would do best in a home with another small, gentle dog, but it is not a requirement. Buster Brown needs a home that is calm and quiet with someone that is home during the day and just wants to love on him. He has had a dental and blood work and overall, he is healthy. His liver needs a little support so he is on an over the counter medicine to help with that.
This precious boy needs a soft place to fall to live out his remaining years. He has only known love and kindness and he needs a family that will continue to give him that security. Small children are not appropriate for this senior boy. If you think you have the perfect home for Buster Brown, please fill out an application at www.uyr.us
To date we've spent $865.15 on Buster Brown's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $100 in donations.

Meet Butter, a sweet 9 year old, 9 pound Yorkie boy being fostered in Fort Worth, TX. Due to COVID, only Texas applicants will be considered.
THANK YOU TO BUTTER'S RESCUE ANGELS!
Sandy Pagnotta, James Kirchhoff, Laura Prusock, Lauren Radencic, Barbara Burgess, Karen McKeand
UPDATE BIO:05/16.21. I have finally found the food that is perfect for this adorable baby boy. Poor Butter suffered with gastrointestinal disease. He was constantly having diarrhea and gas that would clear the house. He is now on Hills DD and the magic is Duck!! He is doing amazing.
This coming week I am scheduling Butter, another dental that will make him ready for his furever. Someone is going to be very very blessed. This baby is just sooo sweet. He is 99% potty trained. He loves all the dogs, ignores the cats and is a big cuddler. He really loves my hubby too. So he is perfect for both men or women. He's a perfect car rider, leash trained, crate trained (although I hate using crates).
His furever home should be someone who is home as he deserves to have that. He will need to sleep close to you and loves to cuddle. He loves squeaky toys too! I honestly cannot say enough about this little one...he is just pure sweetness. If you feel you have to perfect furever home, please complete an application below. Please remember these babies also if you are able to donate to their medical care as well. Thank you and bless you.
UPDATE BIO: 03/1//21. Sweet Butter is home after spending a day at the vets. Butter had numerous little cysts removed from his body and had the beginnings of his dental. He lost 5 teeth yesterday. However, once again, here is a dog that has lacked dental care so he will need quite a few more teeth removed and we may have 2 nasal fistulas as well in his upper canines due to infection and open sockets. His bottom 2 canines are in bad shape as well. I hope to have this addressed next week so this cute baby boy can be ready for his forever home.We will also see the eye specialist to complete his care.
He is just a total sweetheart and absolutely loves getting attention. I must say...he can pull on your heart fast! Again, please remember our fosters and donate if possible for their medical needs. Please get your applications in for this baby and I will start addressing those applications by the end of next week after his final vet visit. Bless you all and thank you!
Initial Bio 3/7/21: Poor little 9yr, 9lb Butter aka Buster. He lost his family due to financial difficulties and ended up at the shelter as a result. My heart breaks for these innocent ones so here he is! I have had this little man in my home one day and I can tell you, whoever becomes his furever will have hit the jackpot. He is an absolute gentle sweetheart. The first few hours he had so much to say LOL... honestly, he will talk to you!! I proceeded to give him a good massaging bath where I took about 2inches off eye goop off along with kennel smell. He ate a good meal...I actually hand fed him to help him through his anxiety with his fursibling present. Then we put on his tee shirt, and as you can see in the picture, he slowly fell into that deep slumber that comes after the scary noisy shelter and he slept like a baby until morning. Today, Butter acts like this has always been home. He supposedly had GI issues so I'm observing that and the only things medically I can see he needs are a dental and a couple of normal skin moles removed. We will see my vet this week. His bloodwork is amazing! Butter gets along with everyone, cats included. Im not certain that young children and their busy daily noises of play would be ideal, but we can consider your home on a one on one basis. He is 100% housetrained too! I think Butter would love to have someone who would offer him belly rubs quite often. He seems to have lacked a lot of one on one but is truly loving it here!! Please, if you feel you have the purfect forever home for this sweet baby boy, please fill out an application. Foster mom email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
To date we've spent $3025.73 on Butter's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $525 in donations.

Meet Chanel who is 2-years-old and weighs 8 lbs. She is being fostered near Georgetown, TX.
THANK YOU TO CHANEL'S RESCUE ANGELS!
Patricia Willis, Paige Parker
Update 5/20/21. Chanel has been with her foster family since 5/12 and has adjusted amazingly well. This baby can't get enough love and wants to be held, snuggled, be in your lap and practically sleep on you or your head at night. She has a very sweet disposition and gets along extremely well with other dogs. She hasn't been with any kitties or cats so that will have to be a mystery. Along the way she developed kennel cough and is on the road to feeling herself. She will be a little delayed in getting her dental and spay so she will be hanging out with her foster family for a while. She is a small girl at 8 lbs so small children wouldn't be a consideration for her new family. If you feel this is the perfect little girl please go to www.uyr.us and complete an application for her.
Initial Bio 5/15/21. Meet Chanel. This little, 2-year-old , 8 lb, baby girl came to UYR on 5/11 after she was dumped in a shelter lobby in a duct taped cage with soiled blankets and toys. Owners dropped her in and ran so we had no information. She was feisty and scared at the shelter but we are so excited to see that the experience hasnt changed this sweet lovable girl.
She was vetted and got an A plus on her health, so will be spay on 5/20 along with a dental. She came to her foster family on 5/14 and has just moved in like she has always been there. Her new family will be so lucky to have this adorable girl who is housebroken, loves to snuggle next to you on the sofa, sleep right next to you at night, gets along with other dogs, and is so calm and easy going. She loves being outside but she tries to find ways to get out of the fence and will run out front door and garages if given a chance so a home with secure fencing is going to be the safest for her.
Applications with children under 12 cant be considered for this little girl. If you have the ideal home for Chanel please go to our website and complete an application.
To date we've spent $309.66 on Chanel's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $125 in donations.

UPDATE BIO: 05/16/21. This precious baby girl just breaks my heart. We are STILL fighting her MRSP infection after 2 years. We just saw the vet and will try our last hope...an injectable..that we have ordered for delivery this week. Her poor skin is so itchy and the infection is really taking over. As we get close to the end of a med she may be using, the MRSP rears its ugly face again and bam...her skin re-erupts. We do culture after culture to see which antibiotic MAY NOT be resistant. She is such a blessing but these meds are also taking a toll on her body. This new injectable is going to be hard on her liver so we will have to monitor her values. Please keep this baby girl in your prayers and please if possible donate to her care. We have truly tried so hard to help this angel. I might add too that Crystal is also losing her sight. This absolutely breaks my heart!
She is living a life of love here and has lots of security, but I feel she may never get her furever. I know she doesn't realize any difference in the life that she has here...we will just have to see what this last med can do to see if we will ever be able to give her that again. Meantime, she is very loved by us all here! Thank you all for loving Crystal and bless you!
UPDATE BIO: 01/13.21. On February 2nd, Crystal will have been in rescue for 2 years. She came from a horrific puppy mill and endured such a horrible life until that day. Today, Crystal still is very frightened of loud noises or any voices that are raised. She will run immediately to the closet where her safe room awaits. She will also stiffen and cower when a hand is reached to her for love. Somethings like this may take years to overcome. She is very loving. Once she feels the touch she will keep moving in for more loves. Crystal will also come to my desk and ask to be on the couch with me and snuggle up behind me. She also sleeps on the bed with her humans and her other fur siblings at bedtime. When I bring a new foster into the home, Crystal is the first to run and jump with excitement! You can tell she was truly an amazing mommy back in her days as she just loves all the babies.Emotionally, she is still very reserved but has much love to show and give. She gets excited for meals, when she gets up in the morning she greets every baby on the floor as they come off the bed like her. She loves to roll in the grass and will want to stay outside to enjoy the sunshine on a cold day where the sun is warming the ground. God love her!
Medically, Crystal is doing well. She is currently on inexpensive Thyroid and reflux inexpensive meds. Crystal also receives a cytopoint shot once every 2 months or so for itching. She has a revisit with the vet next week for a skin scraping as Crystal has recurring skin infections due to her horrible conditions she endured for years while in captivity in the mill. Crystal also has dry eyes and has lost most of the sight in her right eye. It does not affect her in any way other than when you reach out for loves, you should move slowly on her left side. Other than that, Crystal has gone through many surgical procedures and intensive medical illnesses and has recovered remarkably.
If you feel you have the home to give this sweet girl knowing emotional healing still needs to come, please reach out to me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
UPDATE BIO: 09/13/20.
As you can see, sweet Crystal has been with me for almost 2 years! Having come from the puppy mill that we shut down in the Valley View Area of Texas in early 2019, this little lady has had her share of issues. This is pretty typical of mill babies since their care is non-existent, but also their lifestyle, lack of love and attention, and living conditions also traumatize these angels.
Medically, as you see, we have spent over $12K on this baby girl. Crystal had life saving pyometra surgery within 30 minutes after we left the hell hole. Unbeknown to us, she had a deadly skin infection that invaded her surgical site and she was taken into critical care due to her MRSP. She required addl surgery to clean the surgical site and remove the infection that was trapped inside. Within the next few months she was back in surgery to have both sides of her mammary chains removed due to carcinoma found in one of her MANY mammary tumors. Of course we had a mouthful of infection, infected ears, and eyes that were oozing of green pus due to her living conditions and untreated dry eyes to care for as well. Currently, Crystal only takes thyroid medication and an antacid for her reflux.
Emotionally, Crystal has jumped through hoops to get where she is today. This baby still cowers when you go to touch and she tries to run. If you verbally correct any other dog, she is the first to run for cover and hide. Now she LOVES to be placed by you and get belly rubs and get her hair brushed, and she loves to sleep on the bed. She loves treats and she loves her food. She loves to sit outside and roll in the grass. If you want to see the true love of this puppy mill baby, it's when I bring in another tiny rescue! This is like her having her first Christmas, as she absolutely loves the babies!!
Today, Crystal is doing well. Once again we were in surgery to remove her spleen due to a large mass that had grown inside. We had just finished another round of special antibiotics as she was positive for the MRSP again on her skin. She looks absolutely beautiful again!
Will Crystal ever find her furever home?? I don't know. Life with Crystal would be one where you can have a baby by you and cuddle with you on the couch or in bed. She doesn't have many wants at all. She never asks for anything and is a very quiet little girl. She does NOT like storms. She loves to sit in the sun and roll and rub her back in the grass. She LOVES her baths. She loves to be brushed. She is not a tiny girl so you do not have to worry about her with other dogs. She does not jump on furniture and she will stay where she is put. She loves all animals and is fine around children. For the most part Crystal is housebroken but her housetraining is still ongoing. She is a beautiful gentle soul and for all intensive purposes, she is happy and healthy. If you feel you may have the perfect home for this angel or if you would like additional information regarding Crystal, please email foster mom at email@example.com.
UPDATE BIO. 05/19/20. Once again, meet United Yorkie Rescue Crystal. Crystal is a 9 to 10 yr old, 16lb owner surrender. Her prior adoptive family loved this baby so much. Sadly, the family, both daddy and momma, are dealing with major critical health issues and Covid's shutdown of resources. Sadly, affording new tests for this little girl with ongoing skin and eye issues have left this little girl is dire need of medical assistance due to her own ongoing issues. The decision was made to surrender this baby so that care could continue. A year and 3 months ago Crystal was rescued from a horrible puppy mill with the Fortunate Four as we lovingly called them. She came into rescue then with life threatening pyometra requiring immediate emergency surgery, a horrible skin infection referred to as a MRSP (a bacterial resistant skin infection) and with mammary cancer in which we removed her entire chains. Bunny, who is in my care as a Forever Ours with metastatic cancer, was also from that same hell mill that we successfully had shut down a few months later. These girls not only still suffer with ongoing medical issues, but also share a lot of emotional scars that come from living their life in the mill.
Crystal was immediately seen by my awesome vet at Refinery Road and a medical plan was put into place to once again to address her ongoing skin issues. Tests have been sent to A&M for answers. Skin scraping biopsy, cytocentesis to look for possible cortisol in the urine, a first look for possible Cushing's and a complete blood panel to look for diabetes and or possible thyroid issues with a TSH test. Crystal had previously had great medical attention with visits to oncology and internal medicine prior to her adoption. Hopefully we will get answers since her life was in a healthier environment outside of a crate life and filled with love. Breeding definitely takes it toll on these precious babies!
Please continue to support our babies at UYR. I know times are truly hard for us all with this horrible pandemic, but we cannot stop doing what these babies need...rescue needs to go on. Donations can be made at www.uyr.us. We thank you and bless you all
4/5/19: Crystal broke out in horrific hives and is being treated with another medication and a microbial mousse for her skin since her MRSP infection medication just ended. The oncologist who did her emergency surgery with her MRSP infection thinks she's doing great as does her regular vet. After a week of antibiotic to clear up her hives, she can have her dental and be finally be ready for adoption. Crystal is still very shy with humans until you get her next to you. Then she's just so loving and loves the belly rubs. She absolutely ADORES any and all of the dogs... she was sadly, most definitely an amazing mommy for the mill. She will be a wonderful addition to the right family.
3/27/19 Update: We have reached an amazing milestone...sweet puppy mill Crystal is finally healed and looking for her furever home. Crystal is an estimated 9yr old, 14lb sweet girl. We go for our final vet appointment this week. This angel has had quite a journey after her rescue. She survived life threatening pyometra, mammary cancer and a MRSP infection. These were all on top of her eye infections, skin, ears, and broken teeth. This baby girl, I also feel, has been physically abused. There are times I will reach to pet her or call her and she will cower which just breaks my heart. This is very typical of a mill baby without human interaction, but they learn that love is just amazing. Crystal is starting to crave love and absolutely loves to snuggle in the bed and get her belly rubs. She loves all the fosters and she gets sooo excited when a new one comes in. She immediately wants to go be mommy to them and play. She is such a funny girl too as when she goes to play with the others, she gets tickled on her own and jumps all around which is the cutest thing to see. Crystal deserves a home that will be patient and loving with her. Being a mill baby, she may need to re-settle into your home, but once settled she's such a blessing to have. The perfect home for Crystal would be one that is patient and allows her just to blossom. She loves walks, being outside, riding in the car and just being with her human and buddies. Crystal would love to have another pup to be her friend. She gets along fine with cats in the home as well. If you feel you can give this baby her Cinderella happy-ever-after, please fill out an application or contact foster mom at firstname.lastname@example.org.
2/28/19 Update: Wanted to give everyone an update on sweet Crystal of the Fortunate Four Mill rescue. Crystal went in to have both mammary chains removed on the 15th. Carcinoma was discovered in 2 of her previously excised mammary tumors from prior emergency surgery for her pyometra, so the best cure was this type of removal, as there were many more tumors in both chains. Crystal is home now as of the 20th and doing well. Slowly this angel is coming into herself. The happy moments are just incredible to see as I have watched her attempt to play with one of her fur siblings, try Every bed in the house and rolling on her back and talk as if to say, "this feels soooo good"!! Once again we need your help! This was a costly medical expense, but rescue comes with a price and not with cute bows. Crystal is just an adorable love bug as are her other fur siblings, please help us so we can continue our processes by using the donate button below.
2/9/19 Update: The horror unfolds! Here we have a current picture of Crystal who is one of the Fortunate Four that was recently rescued from the puppy mill last week. Crystal had emergency spay surgery immediately upon rescue due to her pus-filled uterus. The vet also took only 2 0f many concerning mammary tumors off one of her tits to be biopsied while she was under anesthesia. She has multiple tumors in both chains. This new picture shows a sweet angel baby after her first medicated bath on Friday. Sadly, what lies inside sweet Crystal is heartbreaking news that we are working with at the present. These results came back in as tumor #1 being carcinoma and tumor #2 as a complex carcinoma. She was immediately called in for a chest x-ray to see if we have metastasized within the chest cavity and lungs...thankfully, those came back clear. Crystal has bacterial skin infection, bilateral ear infections, loss of tear production in her eyes due to untreated eye infections, a mouth full of horrible decay and now mammary cancer. We have saved her life by performing her pyometra surgery, so now it's time to continue our fight to save her. Crystal will undergo surgery this upcoming week. This will be major invasive surgery to remove both mammary chains to make certain we don't miss margins with this cancer. Possibly her dental can be done at that time as well, we will see. Please continue to support us with these horrifically abused angels.
2/5/19: Meet Crystal, one of 3 breeding females recently rescued from puppy mill. She was in distress and taken immediately for care. She was diagnosed with pyometria, a life-threatening condition which is basically an abscessed uterus. This is caused by over-breeding and lack of medical care. She literally had pus draining from her vagina. Crystal has flea and tick infestation, extremely long nails, hair loss, bacterial skin infection, mammary tumors on both sides, engorged teats indicative of recent nursing. Her teeth are literally falling out.

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
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!
To date we've spent $1494.29 on Emmie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $589.23 in donations.

Ginger Snap is a 6-year-old, Yorkie, girl who weighs 11 pounds and is being fostered near Leander, TX.
THANK YOU TO GINGERSNAP'S RESCUE ANGELS!
INITIAL BIO: 05/15/21. Dear Future Family. My name is Ginger Snap, and I am the newest addition to the United Yorkie Rescue here in beautiful Leander, TX! I came into foster as a surrender from a friend of my original owner. Unfortunately, my original owner passed away, leaving me and eight puppies behind. Luckily for my puppies, my owners friend took them in to find them homes and then surrendered me to the UYR. I am six years old, weigh about 11 lbs., and just recently had my teeth cleaned and got spayed. My life has consisted of being a breeder mom. I was one of the lucky breeder pups though, in that I was very well taken care of. I have had eight litters of puppies over my six year life, but have now left that behind since being surrendered and spayed.
I am in perfect health, but do have protruding nipples from nursing so many puppies. But that doesn't affect my health, disposition, or loving nature. Since I spent my entire life indoors being a breeder, I only know how to use puppy pads to go to the bathroom. Foster mom and dad are working with me to get used to doing my business outside. I also have three other pups in the house to help with the routine. I am the most loving little girl you will ever encounter. I want to be next to you all the time, love belly rubs, and will actually climb up your chest to give you a hug. I have not meet a stranger and get along with other dogs. I do command the attention and will nudge in between the other pups in the house to be sure I am getting all the attention. For this reason, I may be best in a home with no other pets, but can get along with them as long as the others don't get jealous of my constant need for attention. I don't care to be left alone and will cry if I'm separated from my human.
Ideally, my new parents will be home most of the time to ensure my needs are met. I sleep in the bed with foster mom and dad all through the night, and don't care for crates or cages.
If you are looking for the most loving and loyal companion to add to your family, please fill out an adoption application at unitedyorkierescue.org using the tab under my "Looking for Love" profile, or contact foster mom and dad directly at email@example.com.
Anxiously awaiting to hear from you so we can get our lives started together.
To date we've spent $813.44 on Gingersnap's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $25 in donations.

Joey aka Savage
Meet Joey. Joey is a 7-month-old who weighs 6 lbs. Joey is being fostered near Euless, TX.
INITIAL BIO: 06/08/21. Meet precious United Yorkie Rescue Joey! This little boy is absolutely adorable, and only 7 months old! He is sweet as can be and full of kisses to give!! Needless to say, he has lots of puppy energy. Joey loves to play with his toys so much that he has learned to play toss and catch by himself . He truly loves going to the park where he meets lots of friends and will run and play with other babies. He also loves to cuddle with foster mom and loves his belly rubs. He gets along with his fursibling Lulu, and drives her nuts wanting to play lol. Lulu is a Yorkie Diva so it's on her time.
Joey is still in the process of potty training. He wears a belly band to help not to potty on the floor, but is very good about going outside and knows what to do. He is smart and learning very fast. Joey will have his vetting done on June 15 along with a neuter, then will soon be ready for his furever home! He would be great with a family that is very active as an only dog or with a family that has another dog around his age, where the two of them can play together.
Please, if you feel you have that home, submit your application below or email foster mom at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
To date we've spent $0 on Joey aka Savage's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Meet Pepper, a precious 16 year old, blind little Yorkie boy being fostered in Pflugerville, TX. Due to COVID concerns, only Texas applicants will be considered.
THANK YOU TO PEPPER'S RESCUE ANGELS!
Sandra Wendt, Barbara Burgess, Angie Cagle, Behnaz Memarzadeh, Cynthia Paree
BIO UPDATE: 5/28/21 Our sweet little Pepper just had a re-check of his Cushings and his Hypothyroidism. His thyroid levels are perfect! Sadly, his Cushings symptoms have returned, so our amazing vet increased his Cushings medication so that Pepper could go back to his normal day! Pepper was dealing with an increase in urination and thirst, a little panting and pacing, and an increased appetite. After just a few days of his increased Cushing's medication, Pepper is feeling so much better and back to being his adorable self and the routine he loves!
Pepper loves to be held close, especially by foster daddy, so he feels safe and secure. Each day Pepper is getting back to living his best senior life!
BIO UPDATE: 3/30/21. Pepper has returned to united Yorkie Rescue after being in his adopters home for over 4 months. Unfortunately, his new senior mommy became ill and could no longer care for him. He is doing well and settling back in with his foster family from before. Additional vetting, up on his return, has found that he has Cushing's, so that is managed with a tiny dose of medicine once a day in the morning.
Pepper is still the same little man as he was and lets you know with the cutest little bark/jump if he needs to potty, wants to snuggle or if he is hungry. He is mostly potty trained and needs to be reminded, but does also know how to use potty pads.
Peppers absolute favorite thing is that he loves to be held like a baby in your arms until he falls asleep.
INITIAL BIO. 11/11/2020: Meet our Precious little San Diego man, Pepper. He has come into United Yorkie Rescue via our UYR California Rescue Angels! Pepper was recently surrendered to UYR due to his familys unfortunate medical situation, which resulted in him spending large amounts of time alone. This left his family with the hardest decision they have ever had to make.
Pepper is settling in nicely with his foster family and canine foster siblings. He absolutely loves to be snuggled and always wants to be with his human(s). His tiny little sweet barks will let you know when he is hungry or needs to potty. He has also been expertly pad trained.
Pepper went to the dogtor this week and he got the thumbs up on his health, with the only note being that he needs to be on thyroid medication.
Pepper shares more of his personality every day! If you are looking for an avid lap companion and professional snuggler, Pepper is your man!
Get your application in now to be considered for this amazing little guy! Use the link: http://unitedyorkierescue.org/?page_id=33 to apply or contact his foster parents directly the following email address for further information: firstname.lastname@example.org
To date we've spent $2553.05 on Pepper's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $620 in donations.

Meet Precious. Precious is a 2-year-old who weighs 8 Lbs. She is being fostered near Leander, TX.
THANK YOU TO PRECIOUS' RESCUE ANGELS!
INITIAL BIO: 06/07/21. UYR would like to introduce Precious. Precious is approximately two years old and weighs about 8 lbs. She was surrendered to the Austin Animal Shelter last week due to being very sick. The kind people at the shelter quickly discovered that she was in desperate need of help. Precious was in the process of giving birth, however something had gone terribly wrong and her puppy was stuck in her birth canal and had already passed away.
The shelter staff had to act quick to save Precious's life by helping her give birth to her very large puppy. They then reached out to United Yorkie Rescue to see if we could help get this Precious girl the immediate medical care she needed. UYR, picked her up and took her straight to our our amazing vets office where Dr. Curl could access her condition. Her thyroid levels were a little off but that was to be expected after having given birth. Due to what she has just gone thru she is at very high risk of infection so is taking antibiotics and being closely monitored by her foster Mom & Dad.
She is getting lots of much needed love and rest. She has a follow up visit with Dr. Curl on the 16th to see if she is healthy enough to schedule her spay surgery and they will also re-check her thyroid levels after one month. We look forward to keeping everyone updated as Precious heals and gets closer to being ready to find her forever home.
To date we've spent $193.13 on Precious's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $25 in donations.

She is scheduled to see the vet and have a spa day so that she can feel her best for her new home.

Paisley is an adorable, 12 Year Old little girl who is being fostered near Madison, WI.
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.
For more information, contact my foster parents at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
