Chauncey

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

THANK YOU TO CHAUNCEY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Initial Bio 10/19/21:

Hello everyone, my name is Leo. I am 10 years old. Let me tell you a little bit about myself.

Let me start first by telling you that one day not long ago a sweet lady came to my rescue. I remember that day like it was yesterday. I was very scared and terrified because I had never been away from my home. I have never been surrounded by so many people and so many doggies. At that time, I didnt understand why I was left in that cold place. I was just waiting for my family to come back and take me home, but that day never came. I am 10 years old and if you can imagine I am not a puppy anymore. I am a doggie that requires medical attention but soon I will be ready for someone to love me forever. The day I was rescued I also met with a nice doctor that told my foster mom what is happening with me. He mentioned that I am overweight and have a mass in my ear and that is making it difficult for me to hear. I am having some issues with my back legs from being overweight too. Because of that, now I am on a diet and my foster mom is taking care of me until I slim down and the nice doctor can fix my ear and also continue with other tests to make sure I will be ok.

My foster mom is very optimistic because she believes there is someone for me out there. She says that I am a nice mellow guy, cute, noble and sweet. I get along with other doggies and I like everybody. My foster mom is working with me on housetraining.

My ideal mom or dad or both is someone that mostly be home. If you leave, I will behave, I will not cry, but I will miss you for sure. I love to watch TV and be next to you on the couch, and if you like a doggie to follow you everywhere, that is me. I dont run too much, I dont do long walks just yet, but I am a very happy doggie. I love car rides and I definitely love to eat chicken. I am waiting to do more tests so we can update you on my medical condition and treatment plan. I AM NOT READY FOR ADOPTION YET but if you think you can be my mom or dad or both, please fill out an application anytime, and if you have any questions about me, please email my foster mom to Yorkye4Adoption@gmail.com. She will be more than happy to respond it.

Meet Phoebe Snow, a precious 4 pound, 13 year old Yorkie girl who is being fostered in Southern California.

THANK YOU TO PHOEBE SNOW'S RESCUE ANGELS!

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

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

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

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

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

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

We will continue to update here as we determine her treatment plan. We hope her kidney function is normal so we can safely move forward with the surgeries. As you can imagine, Phoebes care is going to be a HUGE expense for UYR. Please click the donate button below to help UYR give Tiny Phoebe the Medical Care Shell Need to Survive..and Live the Life Shes Always Deserved.

Bowie Jones

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

PLEASE NOTE: BOWIE IS HEARTWORM POSITIVE AND HE WILL NOT BE AVALABLE FOR ADOPTION UNTIL LATE DECEMBER/EARLY JANUARY. PLEASE CONSIDER DONATING TO HIS HEARTWORM TREATMENT.

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

THANK YOU TO BOWIE JONES' RESCUE ANGELS!

UPDATED BIO 10/15/2021: Bowie was surrendered to a vet's office to be euthanizes because the owners were no longer able to care for this sweet boy. He desperately needed a dental and neuter, which was done by the generous & caring vet who contacted United Yorkie Rescue to see if we could bring him into our group. Bowies mouth was horribly infected and he lost all of his remaining 6 teeth, but he has no trouble eating for sure!

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

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

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

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

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

He desperately needed a dental and neuter, which was done by the generous & caring vet who contacted United Yorkie Rescue to see if we could bring him into our group. Bowie's mouth was horribly infected and he lost all of his remaining 6 teeth, but he has no trouble eating for sure!

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

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

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

Look at me now! I feel so much better!

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

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

CALLIE NEEDS OUR HELP!

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

B>THANK YOU TO CALLIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


To date we've spent $887.94 on Callie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $915 in donations.

Chloe

MEET CHLOE. She is a sweet little senior yorkie who is 12 years old and weighs 6.5 lbs. Chloe is being fostered in Miami Beach, FL.

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

THANK YOU TO CHLOE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Lesley Lopez

UPDATED BIO 10/12/2021: Sweet Senior Chloe was loved by her mom who had her since she was very young. But sadly, her mom became unable to care for Chloe so she became a UYR foster dog.

It has only been a little over a week since Chloe arrived at her foster home. In this time, Chloe has shown her foster mom that she is a loving little senior gal who thoroughly enjoys her daily walks. Bonus she is leash-trained. Her face lights up with joy once she is outside, and she loves to sniff around, and mark her presence there to ensure that other dogs walking by will know her status. Yes, she is a proud diva! This behavior may diminish once sweet Chloe feels comfortable in her new furever home.

Sweet Chloe has a healthy appetite and likes to laze around in the house. She absolutely loves to have her tummy rubbed and her hair brushed. Chloe has been a bit of a barker in her foster home, so apartment or condo living may not be the right placement for her since the neighbors could be annoyed. The barking may diminish once she settles into her new home and becomes accustomed to the sights and sounds in her surroundings. Foster mom thinks that Chloe would flourish best in a home with no other pets since she loves to have all the attention herself just like a little Princess deserves! Chloe needs some reinforcement in the house-training department since her former mom was unable to take her outside on a regular basis.

Chloe has had her well-doggie vet check and had her vaccinations updated. She has been itching so she was prescribed Apoquel to see if this helps. Her foster mom will be considering a different diet as the itching may be caused by food allergies. Chloe may need a dental since she hasnt had one in a while, so stay tuned to learn more about this little princess.

INITIAL BIO 10/02/2021: Sweet Senior Chloe was loved by her mom who had her since she was very young. But sadly, her mom became unable to care for Chloe so her moms daughter reached out to UYR to see if we could take her into our foster care program and of course, we said YES!

Chloe has just arrived in her foster home today and will be settling in before seeing the vet for a well-dog check and labs. Please stay tuned to learn more about Chloe as her foster mom gets to know her better.

UPDATED BIO 10/02/2021: Kelani has been in her foster home for 3 weeks now. Her previous owner brought her into the shelter to have her euthanized what?? The shelter immediately reached out to UYR to see if we would bring this sweet girlie into our Foster Care Program. Of course we said YES!

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

Hey there, Kelani here with an update on my big trip to a specialty vet hospital in Jacksonville. It took us two whole hours to get there, but I didn't mind, I love car rides. And my foster mom told me I was worth every minute of the drive. Gee, I must be a very special doggie.

I saw a very nice lady dogtor who gave me that special test everyone's been talking about. She called it an Echocardiogram. She said it wouldn't hurt a bit and asked me to lay on my side on this cold table. Brrr! But I did as she asked and I was real still. I was a really good girl. The dogtor said so, too. She was right, the test was easy peasy.

When she was all done, she went into another room to tell my foster mom what she found on the test. My foster mom later told me what the dogtor said. It seems that both of my heart valves (I didn't know I had two) are leaky. As a result, one of the chambers in my heart was slightly enlarged. Yikes! But she said for me not to worry. I will need to have this test repeated in 6-9 months for comparison. If there's a change, I will have to take some medicine for the rest of my life, but I dont need it now. I will need to have this test every year after that. The dogtor said the leaky valves were age related. What!? I'm only nine years old!

So I wanted to tell my adoring public whats ahead for me. Whoever adopts me needs to be aware of the added expense for my care. I will need a yearly Echocardiogram which will cost around $700. And if I ever need to be put on medication, it will be for the rest of my life.

But think about the many positive things I will bring to my lucky adopter. Most importantly, Im very very sweet. I'm obedient. I'm small, so I don't eat very much. I'm house-trained. I love car rides. I walk well on a leash. I'm friendly to people and other small dogs. I'm up to date on my vaccinations. I'm spayed and will have my teeth cleaned next week.

I don't play with toys much, but my foster mom is still trying to get me interested in them. I don't know about young children and foster mom said it would be best if my new home didn't have anyone younger than 12-14 years old. I would prefer that my new mom/dad was retired, worked part-time or worked from home. I don't like to be left alone for long periods of time.

I should be ready for adoption by October 9th. So, if you want a awesome little doggie, I'm your girl.

Kelani out.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I love going on walks
Florida
Louie

MEET LOUIE! Louie is about 10 years old and weighs 13.4 pounds. This guy is one sweet pup. Louie is being fostered in Bradenton, FL.

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

THANK YOU TO LOUIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Lee Filer

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


To date we've spent $1409.85 on Louie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $40 in donations.

Sunny Boy

Sunny Boy is about 3 years young and weighs 13 pounds. He is a beautiful, blonde Schnauzer/Yorkie mix. He's a Snorkie! Sunny Boy is being fostered in Spring Hill, FL.

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

SUNNY BOY IS RECUPERATING FROM A BROKEN PELVIS AFTER BEING HIT BY A CAR.

THANK YOU TO SUNNY BOY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

UPDATED BIO 10/07/2021: Sunny Boy was found on the street and picked up by animal control after being hit by a car. He was unable to put any weight on his back legs when found. The shelter gave him pain meds, took a lot of x-rays and put a catheter in to help him eliminate urine. The call went out to their rescue partners that this guy needed to be out of the shelter right away. We were there to see that it happened.

Sunny has been in his foster home the past 4 weeks recuperating from his fractured pelvis. His road rash and other wounds are healing and he is scheduled to have updated radiographs and a neuter on 11/01. He is no longer on strict crate rest, and the vet said that walking is good for him and will improve his muscle tone and strengthen his muscle and tendons. However, he is still restricted from running, jumping and climbing stairs for now.

Sunny is walking but favors his left back leg and it is possible that he may always have a limp, but he will not be in pain once his fractured pelvis has completely healed. He has gained 2-1/2 lbs and is now a healthy weight at 13 lbs.

Sunny visited the groomer and not only does he feel much better, he is so very handsome! Foster mom says that he is a very sweet little fella and friendly to everyone. She says that despite what he has suffered in the past, he is a happy boy. Please stay tuned to learn more about Sunny Boy it is possible that he may be ready for adoption in 6 8 weeks after he is fully recovered.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Initial Bio 9/13/21 Sunny Boy was found on the street after possibly being hit by a car. He is not able to put any weight on his back legs. The shelter gave him pain meds, took a lot of x-rays and put a catheter in him to help him eliminate urine. The call went out to their rescue partners that this guy needed to be out of the shelter right away. We were there to see that it happened.

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

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

UPDATED BIO 10/07/2021: This absolutely adorable little fella was pulled from a local shelter on 09/30/2021. He had previously been hit by a car the prior month and had a broken pelvis. His owners brought him to the shelter to be euthanized and UYR was going to make sure that did not happen.

FAST FORWARD one week Toby has seen an orthopedic surgeon and a plan has been established to move forward with treatment for his multiple medical issues. The x-rays showed that his pelvic fracture is extremely serious with a lot of damage to that whole area. It is possible that the pelvic repair will require some major surgery with plates and screws in order to put Toby back together again. He has right hind limb lameness and muscle wasting and is not using that leg. One of his toes on that leg has an exposed bone and must be removed. This is the first of potentially several surgeries Toby may need. It is also possible that his right hind leg may require an amputation, but conservative treatment at this time is indicated.

Toby's toe amputation surgery is scheduled for 10/08 and the costs of this surgery is $1,800+. We are reaching out to our angel donors to please donate towards Toby's surgery so that he can begin the healing process. We do not know what his previous owners who surrendered him for euthanasia to the shelter did for him, but this little fella had multiple injuries that required immediate attention, and it appears they did not do the right thing for this sweet boy. He has been let down in the past by people, and with your donations and prayers, we are determined not to let that happen going forward for Toby. Please help us help Toby.

Toby's foster mom reports that in spite of his multiple injuries, he has been doing well in his foster home. She said that he is a very sweet little man, which speaks highly of his character since he must be in a lot of pain. He has been on pain meds since he was rescued from the shelter. Foster mom reports that he loves to follow her around on 3 legs since he is not using the injured leg, and is interested in the resident doggies in the home. This little fella has a long way to go but UYR will be there every step of the way. Please consider a donation to UYR which will not only enable us to help Toby, but help other little dogs like him in the future.

INITIAL BIO 9/30/2021: This absolutely adorable fellow has had a rough month. About a month ago Toby was hit by a car. His owners told the shelter when he was brought there today he has a broken pelvis from being hit by a car a month back. We are not sure if he received any medical or surgical treatment for the fractured pelvis. What we do know is that today he was brought into the shelter to be euthanized. The shelter saw an otherwise healthy young adult dog who needed a chance. They reached out to their rescue partners and asked for a rescue commitment for him by 5:00pm today or he would be euthanized. We couldn't let that happen. At noon today, the last day of September, was not going to be Toby's last day of life. Today he he became a United Yorkie Rescue dog, and like all UYR dogs we committed ourselves to do whatever is necessary that can be done to fix him.

The shelter did a thorough exam of his pelvic region and hind legs. The-rays showed that the pelvic fracture is extremely serious. The pictures showed a lot of damage to that whole area. It is more than likely the pelvic repair will require some major surgery with plates and screws in order to put Toby back together again. The shelter further found that Toby was weight bearing on three legs. However, he went from weight bearing to non-weight bearing on his left hind leg. His right hind leg has a grade 3/4 medial patellar luxation (MPL), also known as kneecap dislocation. That same leg has mild muscle atrophy. The skin surrounding the middle bone on one of his toes on his right hind leg is significantly ulcerated and though it may be trying to heal, there is swelling present along the surrounding soft tissue of that same toe. To make matters worse, a small section of the middle bone appears to be exposed. Both his hips, likely due to the pelvic fracture, have decreased range of motion. Could it be any worse for this poor guy? Yes it could, he may also need that ulcerated toe, or possibly the whole right hind leg, amputated.

Toby will see the general vet as soon as possible as well as an orthopedic surgeon. In spite of all that and the pain, for which he is receiving pain meds, Toby is the sweetest, friendliest, most loving pup. When his United Yorkie Angel came to rescue him he gave her kisses upon kisses. You could see how happy Toby was to see her. If we didn't know better, you would have thought he knew his death sentence was lifted and he was going to get the care he needed to make him whole again. Toby would probably like nothing better than to be able to run and play and live his life like a young adult pup should. We want more than anything to give him that.

We committed to Toby to make him whole again, now we are asking our donor angels to also commit to Toby and to UYR and PLEASE give whatever you can to help us pay for this soon to be very expensive surgery. There will be more coming as well as new pictures very soon as we follow Toby along on this journey. It will be a long road ahead for him, but Toby is ready for it and we will be with him the whole way.

Aston
Illinois
Aston

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Adoption Pending

To date we've spent $754.54 on Aston's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $50 in donations.

Bentley
Illinois
Bentley

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

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

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

Phoebe
Maryland
Phoebe

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

THANK YOU TO PHOEBE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Geoffrey Washington, Nicole Lane

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

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


To date we've spent $270.23 on Phoebe's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $203.5 in donations.

Dante

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

THANK YOU TO DANTE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Elizabeth Candido

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

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

We know Dante doesnt tolerate a crate and he is fine if left alone in the house. He loves a good belly rub and will roll over as soon as you pet him and Is a good couch potato as long as He can be snuggled next to you.

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

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

Stay tuned as we get to know more about him.


To date we've spent $484.24 on Dante's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $100 in donations.

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

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

Rocky

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

THANK YOU TO ROCKY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Sandy Pagnotta

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

Initial Bio 10/2/21: Tinka Faith was a girl on the streets. She had been wandering around severely matted and flea infested for some time. A Good Samaritan rescued her during a severe thunderstorm and reached out to try to find her home on Facebook. Another person reached out to him and was apart of the humane society and fostered her till her stray hold was up. Tons of fliers and Facebook posts and shelter posts were made and no one claimed this sweetheart. The foster took her to the vet and discovered by X-ray that she has a huge bladder stone. An antibioc was given and she has to take it for 3 weeks. At this point they surrendered her to United Yorkie Rescue to get her the special care she needs and to get her the best home. So far we have noticed that she is a very smart girl who loves outside and adores food. She is super playful and took her bath and grooming very well. She gets along great with other dogs. She does have to go potty ALOT and we are sure it is the bladder stone. She is healthy otherwise.

Coco

Coco

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

THANK YOU TO COCO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Pam Roberts, Anita Mathes

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

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

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


To date we've spent $866.04 on Coco's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $100 in donations.

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

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


To date we've spent $6193.07 on Davey's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $2005 in donations.

Dixie

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

THANK YOU TO DIXIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Everett Smith, Lauren Radencic, Paula Smith

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


To date we've spent $580.8 on Dixie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $320 in donations.

Emmie
Texas
Emmie

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

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

THANK YOU TO EMMIE' RESCUE ANGELS!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Pepper
Texas
Pepper FO

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, Pam Roberts

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!

KeKoa

KeKoa is a 5-pound, 13 year old (estimated) Yorkie boy being fostered near Stafford , VA. .

THANK YOU TO KEKOA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Cheryl Scrupski, Wendy Henry, Sandy Pagnotta

Initial Bio 10/22/21:

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


To date we've spent $0 on KeKoa's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $55 in donations.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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