UPDATE 3-29-21: Ali is thriving in her foster home. This is one elegant little lady. She weighs 6.7 lbs and is quiet, very calm and laid back, and really loves belly rubs! She is housebroken, minds well, comes when you call her, and is a delightful little house guest. She will stand on her back feet and do a dance of delight when it is feeding time. Ali had her Vet check -up last week. She was pronounced healthy and no problems that most 12 year old ladies do not experience. She would be a wonderful companion to someone who is home most of the time to be with her and admire her highness. She has long, beautiful gold and silver hair and the most beautiful big brown eyes. She loves for you to talk to her and will gaze into your eyes lovingly. She would like a nice quiet home for her retirement years.

THANK YOU TO PINA'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Tammy Adams

UPDATE 3-29-21: Pina (peen yah) is the most delightful little girl. She is a funny little character and will keep you entertained with her antics. At 10 years of age, she still has a lot of love to give, and her little 9.8 body just squirms with happiness. You never see her without a smile on her face and a waggy tail. When she walks away from you, she prisses with pride. She is housetrained, leash trained and loves to go for walks. She likes to lay on top of the furniture to rule her domain with a soft paw and lots of kisses. She gives hugs to her favorite people and wants to be with them all the time, following them to show her love. She loves to roll onto her back and get belly rubs and will sometimes just doze off laying like that. She will make a delightful companion to someone who is home most of the time to enjoy her company. Someone will be extremely fortunate to make this girl a part of your life! She will have her dental on 4-14 and be ready for a new adventure soon after that.

Florida
Ava Simone

Meet little Ava Simone. Ava is only 6 months old and weighs 6.5 pounds. She is being fostered in Dunedin, FL.

Due to Covid dogs being fostered in Florida need to be adopted within the state of Florida.

THANK YOU TO AVA SIMONE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Sandi Pemberton, Ada Mayte Santamaria, Jolanta Gines, Jane Montford, Allison Triplett, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Debra Frare, Nihema Cox, Stephanie Rodriguez, Wendy Fuhrmaneck

THANK YOU TO AVA SIMONE'S FACEBOOK DONORS!

Karry Rogers, Diane Fletcher Marvin, Alexandria Puello-Moschella, Mary Skul Matejka, Tim Griffin, Theresa Viviano McDivitt, Linda Rich Crawford, Bret Park, Jill Yablon, Stacia Hahn

Ava Simone has an appointment with the specialist on 04/27/2021 to determine the cause of her previous symptoms and also have testing to see if she has a liver shunt. If Ava needs 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 she has seen the vet. 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 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? We have so many wonderful generous angel donors and we appreciate each and every one of you. Please consider making a donation towards Avas upcoming medical testing and possible surgery by clicking on the PayPal link below.

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.

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

I think I might like my foster home. It is fun here.

Me and my brother Max - we go everywhere together
Florida
Charlie (and Max)

Charlie is a sweet almost 11 year old Yorkie fellow. He is a little bit too chubby at 13 pounds. Charlie and his brother Max need to be adopted together. Charlie is being fostered in Odessa, FL.

Due to Covid-19 dogs being fostered in Florida need to be adopted within the state of Florida.

THANK YOU TO CHARLIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Lee Filer

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

Charlie loves to be petted and especially loves to lie on the sofa next to his person. He is very sociable and is following his foster mom around the house. Charlie gets along with the dogs in his foster home, but we have no history if they have been exposed to kitty cats.

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

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


To date we've spent $471.98 on Charlie (and Max)'s vet bills, but with your support we've collected $20 in donations.

Look how handsome I am now that I was groomed

I will be your best buddy
Florida
Cooper

Cooper is a sweet 9-year-old Chorkie (chihuahua/yorkie mix). He weighs 11.8 pounds. Cooper needs to be the only dog in his home. He is being fostered in Orlando, FL.

Due to Covid-19, dogs being fostered in Florida must be adopted within the state of Florida.

THANK YOU TO COOPER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta

UPDATED BIO 04/11/2021: Cooper is a very smart and sweet boy. In his first UYR foster home, he let his foster mom know that he really wants to be the only dog in his home. Once he felt comfortable in the home, he let the resident dog know that he wasnt happy to be sharing his foster moms attention, so he was moved to a home where he is the only animal in the home. Although he has played with other dogs, he wants to have his person to himself. He likes all the attention and doesnt want to share his person with anyone else.

Cooper is up-to-date on his vaccinations and has had a dental. He had a mass on his left rear foot when he came into UYR and it was surgically removed and sent off to be tested and came back benign hooray. He is taking a glucosamine supplement for joint support which most dogs need after the age of 5-6 years old, and will need this supplement for the rest of his life.

Cooper is a snuggler and loves to shower his person with kisses. He will snuggle into your side and roll over for belly rubs sweet! He is also a very smart little boy who is completely house-trained bonus! He will let his foster mom know he needs to go out by acting antsy and getting your attention by pawing at you. He is also leash-trained, and will walk all over town with his person. He has a wobbly little interesting gait since he takes short steps with his front legs. So cute. He is such a good boy who enjoys being with his people. Cooper is ready to go to his forever home and show his adoptive parents a whole lotta love.

PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING BEFORE APPLYING FOR COOPER:

- Cooper has let his foster mom know that he prefers to be the only dog in the home

- Priority will be given to potential adopters with a fenced-in yard since Cooper is a runner.

UPDATED BIO 03/31/2021: Cooper is doing great in his foster home and continues to show his appreciation and excitement about being out of the shelter. He has been groomed and is oh-so-handsome and he must feel so much better after having all the mats and tangles in his shaggy hair cut off. He saw the vet who commented that he looks great for his age of 9 years old.

Cooper has recently seen the vet for a dental, and while he was under anesthesia, the mass on his left rear foot was removed - it was sent off to be tested and it was benign - hooray! Because Cooper initially came in with a limp on his right rear leg, radiographs were also taken to determine if he had an something going on, but nothing was found in his knee/hip/spine. Great news! He is currently taking glucosamine for joint support and will probably need to be on that for the rest of his life. Cooper is ready for adoption!

Cooper is so loving and sweet and gives lots of kisses. Foster Mom reports that Cooper will go to his brand new doggie bed when she tells him its time to go to bed and sleeps through the night. She said he is such a good boy who enjoys being with his people.

Cooper's surgery/radiographs/histopath were expensive. The people in his previous life have already let him down, and UYR provided him the medical intervention/surgery he needed. In order to continue to rescue little medically-needed dogs like Cooper, we are asking for donations to go towards his vetting expenses. All donations are appreciated and UYR thanks you from the bottom of our hearts.

PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING BEFORE APPLYING FOR COOPER:

- Cooper has let his foster mom know that he prefers to be the only dog in the home

- Priority will be given to potential adopters with a fenced-in yard since Cooper is a runner.

UPDATED BIO 03/10/2021: Cooper is doing great in his foster home and continues to show his appreciation and excitement about being out of the shelter. He has been groomed and is oh-so-handsome and he must feel so much better after having all the mats and tangles in his shaggy hair cut off. He saw the vet who commented that he looks great for his age of 9 years old. The vet did a thorough exam of his knee/hip area since he is limping, and since Cooper needs a dental, a radiograph will be taken under anesthesia to determine the cause of the limp on his right rear leg. He will also have the mass on his left rear foot removed at this time. Cooper is so loving and sweet and gives lots of kisses. Foster Mom reports that Cooper will go to his brand new doggie bed when she tells him its time to go to bed and sleeps through the night. She said he is such a good boy who likes people and enjoys playing with the neighbors dog.

Cooper's surgery to fix his knee/hip issue, remove the mass on his foot, as well as getting a much-needed dental will cost UYR quite a bit of money. Please help us to help Cooper get healthy. The people in his previous life have already let him down, we can't let this little fella down, and with your help we won't. Lets all show Cooper the love he so badly wants. Please donate whatever you can. And thank you so much for doing that.

PLEASE NOTE: Cooper has let his foster mom know that he perfers to be the only dog in the home. Please keep this in mind before submitting an adoption application for him.

Initial bio 3/5/21: There was never a dog happier to be out of the shelter. He couldn't get into his rescue angel's car fast enough. He was harnessed in and before he could even settle down, he had to give kisses and love. Why this sweet dog ended up in the shelter we may never know. Our best guess is that Cooper does need to see the vet as soon as possible. He has a mass on his left rear foot, but even worse his is holding up his right leg and not putting weight on it. He has a badly luxating patella (knee). We are pretty sure he will need patella surgery very soon. He also will need a dental to clean up the tarter and freshen up his not so good breath. Lucky for Cooper he already has an appointment with the vet Monday morning. At that time, we will know so much more.

Cooper needs a bath and a good grooming. He has mats and tangles in his shaggy hair. This boy, in spite of all those issues and a stay in the shelter, is so sweet and so loving. He just wants to be on your lap or next to you and be loved. We know that with love, good healthy food, and veterinary care Cooper should make the right family a great pet.

Please come back soon and let's get to know Cooper together. Cooper's surgery to fix his knee, remove the lump, as well as getting his mouth cleaned up will cost UYR quite a bit of money. Help us to help Cooper. People have already let him down, we can't do to him too, and with your help we won't. Lets all show Cooper the love he so badly wants. Please donate whatever you can. And thank you so much for doing that.


To date we've spent $629.29 on Cooper's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $170 in donations.

I am beautiful. Yup, I said it. You know it.

I love my close-up. I bet you will too
Florida
Ellie

This cutie is Ellie. She is a Papillon/Yorkie mix. Ellie is 9 years old and 11.5 pounds of sweetness. Ellie is being fostered in Orlando, FL.

Due to Covid-19 dogs being fostered in the state of Florida can only be adopted within the state of Florida.

UPDATED BIO 03/31/2021: Ellie was sadly surrendered to the shelter when her owner could not afford to keep her any longer. This sweet, friendly little girl has a short history of urinary issues, yet she has only seen the vet once about it. United Yorkie Rescue couldnt turn this little Papillon/Yorkie (Yorkillon) mix away. She needed us and we were ready to step in to get her the help she needs.

Ellie stopped in to give her fans an update on how she is doing heres what this princess had to say:

Hi everyone - it's Ellie. Let me give you an update on what's been happening since I got to my foster home. I've been here 18 days and I really like it. Why, you ask? Because I am no longer wearing diapers! My foster mom took me to see her vet who told her I likely have something called "spay incontinence". Of course, being a doggie, I had no idea what that is, but foster mom told me that it meant that it can affect up to one out of five spayed female dogs, and develops an average of 2.9 years after the dog has been spayed. Urethral sphincter mechanism incompetence (USMI) is the most common non-neurogenic cause of urinary incontinence in adult female dogs. Anyway, I couldn't help that I was leaking urine. It just happened. I had no control. It seems like it usually happened while I was asleep at night.

I have seen the nice doggie dogtor and she gave me some pills to stop me from leaking. And they are starting to work! I've been taking them for 1-1/2 weeks now. I am having a few of the expected side effects, namely sleeping a lot, but as my body gets used to them, this should get better. My dose is being cut every few weeks in the hopes that the meds will continue to work. The dogtor will then see if I should stay on that lower dose or if it needs to be adjusted, and that will take another 3-4 weeks. I will probably need to be on this medication for the rest of my life. Once the dose is regulated, I will be ready to go to my forever home.

I know you want to know more about me so here goes this is the good stuff ... I love to be with my human - always. I love to cuddle. I am house-trained and will let you know when I need to go potty. I love car rides and walks. I am very good on a leash. I like other people and kids. I dont think I would like to live with another dog. My foster mom's dog and I are civil to one another, but we don't play together. I got very angry with her (the doggie, not foster mom!) when she wouldn't let me have the toy she was playing with. Another time, I got upset when she got a little too close to my food. My foster mom thinks I may have been an only dog at my previous home and didn't learn how to share with other dogs.

My foster mom is getting to know me better every day and will know what kind of forever home is best for me. I do know that I don't want to be left alone for long periods of time, so I would like to have at least one stay-at-home parent, or a mom/dad who are retired would be great. I would also like a fenced backyard so I can sniff at my leisure and chase squirrels.

That's all I have for now. Oh, I forgot to say that I am very VERY cute. I am sure you will agree.

Ellie out. XOXOXOXO

Initial Bio 3/13/21 Ellie was sadly surrendered to the shelter when her owner could not afford to keep her any longer. This sweet, friendly little girl has a short history of urinary issues, yet she has only seen the vet once about it. There are many things that can be causing this, but they were unable to get her the veterinary care she needs. The shelter asked if we could take this sweetheart and get her the help she requires.

United Yorkie Rescue couldnt turn this little Papillon/Yorkie (Yorkillon) mix away. She needed us and we were ready to step in to get her the help she needs. Ellie already has an appointment to see the vet on Tuesday March 16th. She will get a thorough check up. We don't know yet what will be found out. What we do know about this adorable pup is that she is very friendly and happy. She enjoys being with people, as long as they don't hold her too tightly, then she gets a little squirmy. Her foster mom said she was great in the car ride to her foster home, has cuddled up to her while she was sitting in her living room chair, and is already making friends with the resident dog.

Ellie is spayed, up to date on all vaccinations, and even had a dental. When we know what her urinary issues are, we will know how to treat her. If this sweet, adorable, little girl has caught your eye, come back soon to find out more about her.

I just had my expensive surgery. I am hurting a lot.

I feel a little better but I have to be quiet in my crate. It is not fun.
Florida
Kazie

Kazie is a tiny 4.7 pound, 10-month-old Yorkie puppy girl. She needs our help right away. Kazie is being fostered in Leesburg, FL.

Due to Covid-19 dogs being fostered in Florida, must be adopted within the state of Florida.

THANK YOU TO KAZIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Leslie Jarmel, Ilene Rand, Sonia Laboy, Sandy Pagnotta, Sandy Pagnotta, Sarah Burton, Ileana Sabat, Heather Spilman, Ada Mayte Santamaria, Lindy Long, Jolanta Gines, Carol Goin, Lynn Reed, Gail Wright, Lindsay Blume, Mary Greco, Melanie Correll, Cheryl Scrupski, S Lauren Satterfield, Wendy Henry, Holly Keller, Mary Greco, Alexa Socha, Linda Worsham, Ilene Rand, Elisa Daza, Pauline Parrish, Ariane Pereira de Sousa, Debra Frare

Updated Bio 3-29-2021 Sweet little Kazie had her surgery on Friday March 19th. The day before the surgery the wound from the dog bite was irrigated twice and cleaned out as much as possible. On surgery day this little puppy had a rod placed in her leg to hold her bone together in the hope that the bone will heal properly and her leg can be saved. The bite wound from the dog that attacked her was so deep there is still a fear that bacteria from the infection may have gotten into her bone. Kazie was sent home with antibiotics and pain pills. The wound has to be kept moist with antibacterial ointment several times a day. She will have to be kept quiet and crated for the bone to heal which will take 6-8 weeks.

The first few days after the surgery Kazie mostly slept. She would get up to eat some food and use the potty pad in the puppy pen. She was on antibiotics twice a day and pain medication every 6 hours. She hated to have the ointment put on the wound. The slightest touch to the open wound would cause her to wince and whine in pain, it hurt that much. The wound oozed blood for several days, then clear fluid continued to ooze for several more days. A week after the surgery Kazie went for her follow up to the vet clinic.

The check-up was pretty good. Kazie's leg seemed to be healing well and we were told the bone came together nicely during the surgery. There was still the same concern about bacteria having gotten in the bone from the bite, but with the antibiotics and the fact that the wound was scabbing over were good signs. However, there was another concern. Kazie was not even trying to use the repaired leg. The lower part of the leg sort of dangled. There was a question of irreversible nerve damage from the bite, which would make the leg useless and most likely amputation would be necessary. But the good news is she has feeling in her toes. It could be possible she was still in pain and not ready to use her leg. Kazie goes back to the clinic on Thursday the 31st of March for an x-ray and have her stitches taken out. She should finally be able to have the cone off her. That will make her happy.

Do you know how hard it is to keep a puppy down when that puppy is feeling good? Kazie is ready to resume her life and she can't. She still has to be kept in the puppy pen. She does get to go outside to potty. Several times during the day she is with her foster mom or dad on their lap or sitting next to them. Kazie's mom and dad sometimes put little Kazie securely in a doggie stroller. They are able to wheel her around the house so she is not alone when her foster parents are in another part of the house. She hates to be left alone. She needs to be quiet and calm to allow that leg to heal while the bone comes together. Kazie is so sweet and so good natured. She takes her medicine and being confined with a wonderful attitude. She loves people and gives kisses to everyone. Kazie has not had the opportunity to play with the other dogs and won't for several more weeks. Puppies are meant to run and play and be a puppy. That is our hope for Kazie when she is healed.

Kazie will be with us for several more weeks while her leg heals. We won't know what kind of forever home that will be right for Kazie's needs and personality. Therefore, we will not be accepting applications for Kazie until we know her better. That may not be until the middle to the end of May. Any applications that do come in for Kazie will be held in her file until the time comes when we know the real Kazie, the puppy she is supposed to be. Due to Kazie's young age, and for her safety, she can only be adopted into an adult only home or one with no children under the age of 13. Kazie is very young. She needs a home where her forever family can be with her for at least15 years.

Kazies surgery was expensive. If Kazie's story has touched your heart please consider donating to this sweet girl. Every little bit will help. We thank you and are so grateful for your generosity.

Initial Bio 3/17/21 The call from the shelter came at 12:30 in the afternoon. They had a 10-month-old Yorkie puppy with a broken leg. She needed to be out of the shelter and taken to a vet right away. She would either need orthopedic surgery or an amputation. By 3:00 she was picked up and taken to the vet. Because Kazie would need to be sedated in order to be examined properly, she was given an appointment to come back first thing in the morning. After that appointment we will know what awaits this sweet, tiny little girl.

Kazie's former owner brought Kazie to their vet right after this little puppy was on the losing end of a dog attack. She had a puncture wound on her right hind leg. However, that wasn't the worst of it. She also had a fracture of the tibia and fibula of that same leg. Kazie's owners could not afford the cost of the repair and had the vet splint her leg. The next day they turned Kazie into the shelter hoping the shelter would know of a way to get her the help she needed. That was when United Yorkie Rescue answered the call. We will do what we always do, which is to do everything we can to fix her.

Her leg is splinted and she can stand, but we are sure she is not putting any weight on her broken leg. She is on pain medication, but you can tell she doesn't feel well. Kazie will need that leg repaired and we know that it will cost a lot of money. She is so young and so tiny please, please, help us to get her the help she desperately needs to walk again. We are asking you, our Rescue Angels, to search your hearts and reach into your pockets and make a donation to Kazie. Please help us make her the happy, energetic, puppy she deserves to be. From our hearts we thank you.


To date we've spent $882.5 on Kazie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1733.52 in donations.
Please donate!

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 $3923 on Lucky Florida Boy's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $3155 in donations.
Please donate!

I am liking my foster home with my brother Charlie

Me and my brother Charlie - we go everywhere together
Florida
Max (and Charlie)

Max is a little cutie. This little Yorkie boy is 7 pounds and just turned 10 years old. Max and his brother Charlie need to stay together. Max is being fostered in Odessa, FL.

Due to Covid 19- dogs being fostered in Florida will need to be adopted within the state of Florida

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

Max is very friendly, sweet and affectionate. He loves to be petted and will bump your hand with his paw for attention if he feels he is not getting enough sweet. He loves to lie on the sofa next to his person and is very sociable with people he is following his foster mom around the house. Max gets along with the dogs in his foster home, but we have no history if they have been exposed to kitty cats.

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

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


To date we've spent $686.64 on Max (and Charlie)'s vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.
Please donate!

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! 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.

I think 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. Foster mommy says I am worth it!

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. 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 Im working on paw 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 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.

Initial Bio 3/31/21

Yesterday was not a banner day for Sugar. Yesterday Sugars former owners took her to the shelter and surrendered her stating they could no longer care for her. She arrived in her pink sparkly rhinestone princess collar; no doubt a sign of happier days in Sugars past. Yesterday morning she left the home she had known for the last time; never to return. Instead she found herself in a noisy, crowded urban shelter full of other sad, scared souls just like Sugar. She was poked, prodded, and manipulated by strangers who said she was much to frail and ill for general adoption and that she needed a rescue commitment by the close of the business day. Late in the afternoon, kind strangers arrived and took Sugar for a car ride. At the end she was handed off to more strangers who took her to a strange house full of dogs she did not know or like. She wasnt sure if the people would be nice to her so she cowered and shook in her little pen. She curled her lip in fear when anyone approached. She did not feel like a pink sparkly princess of a Yorkie-Poo at all. Instead Sugar was sad, scared and very stressed. She did not yet understand that she is one of the lucky ones to make it out of the shelter and into the care of a wonderful rescue organization that is going to move heaven and earth to make her whole again. Today was a far better day and the first thing this morning, Sugar went to see the Dogtor to figure why she is so very emaciated and unable to stand or walk. A thorough physical exam and a complete set of lab tests enabled us to start unraveling the mystery of Sugars medical issues. Her lab values were consistent with a chronic lack of sufficient calories and nourishment. In short, Sugar was in starvation mode. She is also severely anemic from hook worms. Physical exam revealed an absolute lack of muscle mass and tone especially in her hind legs. While we can never fully know the reasons why with certainty, the Vet felt that the most likely explanation was prolonged confinement to an extremely small space. Sadly this degree of muscle wasting does not happen over night. Prolonged inability to walk combined with a chronic lack of nutrition has resulted in Sugar losing the ability to ambulate. The treating Vet believes this is a problem which can be reversed with proper care. Today Sugar began a program of aggressive physical therapy and rehabilitation in her foster home where she will have regular aqua-therapy to strengthen the rear legs that are too weakened atrophied to support her. Her foster Mom has also designed her a tiny belly sling so that she can give Sugar extra support for her hind legs as she works to strengthen them through sling-walking. Her little mouth is a smelly infected mess so a dental with extractions will definitely be in her future. But first Sugar needs to gain some weight and begin to reverse her malnutrition. She will be on antibiotics, mega-Vitamins, medication to kill hook worms and a high calorie diet for the next 2-3 weeks so that we can build up her system sufficiently to tolerate the anesthesia required to extract a mouth full of very decayed teeth. Please send Sugar PAWSATIVE vibes for her continued healing. We believe her weak and wobbly self now has at least TWO PAWS firmly planted on the road to recovery and we hope the two rear paws will join the journey soon. Stay tuned for PUPDATES on Sugar and THANK YOU SO MUCH for the amazing support given to her thus far. If you have already donated, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!

Bentley 4 year old 10 pound Yorkie boy. He is being fostered in Hiawassee,GA Due to Covid only Georgia applicants will be considered

THANK YOU TO BENTLEY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Holly Keller, Holly Keller, Marilyn Quinn

Updated bio 4/6/21

Bentley is an adorable and happy 4 year old Yorky male. He has just been neutered, had his teeth cleaned, and all his shots are now up-to-date. He loves his cage and that is where he goes to rest. Very important for him to always have access to his cage and that is also where he sleeps at night. He loves to play with toys, enjoys being with you, and loves to be outside with you. Bentley was surrendered because his mom Ive always been a stay at home mom. But at this point in her life she found that she needed to go back to work. Bentley missed her terribly and did not enjoy being home alone at all. He became very anxious and unhappy. Unfortunately his mom had to work. They did try putting him on fluoxetine to see if that would help and he is still on it. But it did not make enough of a difference for Bentley to stay in his present situation. He needs a home where his new mom or dad are there. He is a people person dog and he just wants to know that you are home. He eats morning and night and hes a good eater. Since he has been with me he has been very good about his potty habits. Even though Bentley is a great guy and loves everyone and hes tolerant of cats and very fond of other dogs we do Require no children under six. If you feel that Bentley fits the bill for your home and you want him to be your best buddy Please fill out an adoption application.

Initial Bio 4/1/21: Bentley has just came into Rescue. He has a checkup with the Dogtor soon and we will know more about this sweet boy soon.

Annie
Illinois
Annie IL

Meet Annie, a sweet and very thin little rescue being fostered in Southwestern Illinois. She is estimated to be 10 years old and is 4 skinny pounds. Due to COVID concerns, adoptions must be within a 100 mile radius of the foster home location.

THANK YOU TO ANNIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

THANK YOU TO ANNIE'S FACEBOOK DONORS!

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.

Blitz (Snowy)

Blitz is a 5 year old Maltese Boy who weighs 13 pounds and is being fostered near Elizabethtown ,KY.

NO ADOPTIONS OUT-OF-STATE DUE TO COVID-19

THANK YOU TO BLITZ'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Wendy Henry, Cheryl Scrupski, Lauren Satterfield

Updated bio 4/13/21: Blitz loves to eat, and it shows in some recent weight gain. Foster Mom will need to cut back on his food. He is a happy boy, who loves to play. Unfortunately he has a foster brother who is a toy hoarder. He does love to play with the pups, running around in the fenced yard.

He has started snorting in the past few days, so he will be going to see the dogtor soon. We want to make sure it is just the seasonal Kentucky allergies.

Blitz has attached to Foster Mom, so he will need a loving adopter who will work with him through the transition. He does growl when he initially meets people.

Updated Bio 2/24/21

Blitz is an adorable, friendly, and super hero! Another rescue organization reached out to UYR to save him from a kill shelter. Blitz is super sweet. He gets along well with other dogs. He does like to play, and he will attach to his person. He enjoys sitting on that person's lap and sleeping at the foot of the bed with that person. And, another thing, he loves, loves to eat. He is always up for a snack, and he is full of joy. He was recently neutered. Other than being extremely matted, his only issue appears to be a deformed paw, which is being attributed to being in a cage too small. He does NOT like being caged. Interestingly enough, he will go into the oversized kennels we have and sleep with the other dogs. Just don't close that door! He is a bit of a barker at times, especially if he notices anyone near the kitchen window. He does go potty outside. He has had a few accidents inside, but we can't fault him because all our pets have had accidents in the house. Plus, who wants to go outside in the cold and all that snow? Blitz is truly a sweetheart of a dog, with a heart of gold.

02/02/21 Blitz has just landed in his new foster home. He is a sweet dog loves to stay close to his foster mom right by her side or at her feet. He seems to get along with foster mom's other dogs. Loves to go outside. Can be nervous when meeting new people. Please stay tuned as we get to know Blitz better he will be going to the Dogtor soon to get current on all vaccinations.

THANK YOU TO CHARLIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Cera Beth Brockman

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.

Dottie Belle
Tennessee
Dottie Belle

Dottie Belle is a 13 year old (estimated) Yorkie Poo mix who weighs about 9lbs and is being fostered near Ashland City, TN.

THANK YOU TO DOTTIE BELLE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Yvette Vangeloff, Jayne Newell, Anonymous Facebook Donors, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Marianna Pazik in loving memory of Ann C. Pazik

Updated Bio 3/19/21

Dottie Belle came into Rescue in November and she was in pretty bad shape. She was weak and super skinny and flea infested. She has no teeth and her bottom jaw has withered in due to bad periodontal disease. She needed help eating her soft food. One of eyes was crusted over, sunk in a bit and very infected. She was probably born with the sunken eye and it ruptured at some point causing the infection. The Vet decided that the removal of the eye would benefit her as it doesnt function and it would always stay infected unless treated with eye medication for life.

Dottie had been having some episodes at night where she waking up and barking, confused as to where she is. The vet thinks she could have been suffering from Canine Cognitive Dysfunction. We have been successful treating this condition with Trazodone one hour before bed. She also sleeps with Foster Mom now and will stay in bed with no restlessness and doesnt wake up till Foster Mom does. Dottie loves to be close to Foster Mom on the couch as well. She absolutely adores food! She eats it right up and knows when the meal times are. She loves to explore outside and even though she is blind, her hearing and smell is excellent and helps her get around. Dottie is now at a healthy weight and her skin and hair is doing good. She gets along well with the other doggies in the house. She is not potty trained but if you are home with her and take her out often she will do well. When your not home she can be left in an open pen with puppy pads. Dottie loves to be talked to and cuddled. She will grunt when she wants down. She is like a bird and wants to explore and taste whatever may be on the ground. She cant see and foster mom thinks that is what brings her joy. Dottie deserves to be loved and cared for during this time in her life. She has already suffered to much. Taking care of an older dog may involve a little more work, but caring for one is a deeply rewarding experience for they give you so much love in return. If your interested in giving Dottie a forever home please email Foster Mom at Mandy@unitedyorkierescue.org.

Updated Bio 1/23/21

Dottie Belle has made tremendous progress! She has adjusted well in her foster home. She is sleeping through the night with Foster Mom with the help of trazadone to help with her Cognitive Disfunction Syndrome. It happens sometimes in Senior doggies and they can become restless, confused and suffer with anxiety at night. She is doing very well right now and doesnt wake up till Foster Mom does. Dottie loves to be close to Foster Mom on the couch as well. She absolutely adores food! She eats it right up and knows when the meal times are. She likes to explore outside even though she is blind, her hearing and smell is excellent and helps her get around. Dottie is now at a healthy weight and her skin is doing good. She was so malnourished and weak when she first came into rescue we had to help her to eat. Dottie Belle gets along well with the other doggies in the house. She is not potty trained but if you are home with her and take her out often I believe she will do well. When your not home she can be left in an open pen with puppy pads and do well. If your interested in giving the sweet Senior a forever home please email Foster Mom at Mandy@unitedyorkierescue.org or go to our website at unitedyorkierescue.org and fill out an application for her.

Updated bio 12/22/20: Dottie had her stitches out of her eye that had to be removed today. She is doing good and we are sure she is more comfortable without that eye staying infected anymore. She has gained much needed weight so she is now a healthy 9 pounds. Dottie has been having some episodes at night where she wakes up and barks confused as to where she is. She is completely blind but can hear and smell well. The vet thinks she has Sundowner Syndrome (canine cognitive dysfunction) it can lead to confusion, restlessness, repetitive pacing, barking for no apparent reason, irritability, or neediness. We are now giving her melatonin at least 30 minutes before bed and she can have Trazodone one hour before bed. This has helped so much. Dottie will need a forever home that understands senior care and will love her unconditionally. She is a sweet girl who was saved from a kill shelter who enjoys her loving, her food , her warm bed and she even doesnt mind dressing up. If you are interested in adoption her please fill out an application for this sweet girl who has just a little bit of special needs but does need a person of her very own.

Updated Bio 12/3/20: Dottie Belle is doing so much better since she first came into rescue. She is eating well all on her own and has gained about 1-2 pounds. Her skin is looking better and her ear infections are just about healed up. She is has a bath with special shampoo and a supplement to help her skin continue to heal up. She is also on a supplement for her arthritis. Her left eye is still giving her trouble, she is having it removed on the 10th of December. Dottie isnt a cuddler, but she enjoys being petted. She needs a home with an understanding family who knows how to care for Senior dogs. She eats and sleeps most of the time but does like to roam around a bit outside when it isnt too cold. If you can please donate to her care and say a prayer that this sweetie gets a home of her very own soon. That is her Christmas Wish.

Updated Bio 11/9/20: Dottie Belle came into rescue last Tuesday. She was either dumped or found wondering the streets which landed her at a shelter in not very good condition. She was flea infested, severely matted, her eyes were matted shut and she was malnourished and extremely weak. The shelter reached out to Rescue and now she is in good hands on her way to recovery. Once cleaned up we noticed an infection in one of her eyes. Its there but is sunk in a bit. The vet said she was probably born with this condition and it ruptured at some point which has caused the infection she has. We will be treating her eye for a couple of weeks but we will will be scheduling the removal of her eye so it doesnt bother her anymore and it does not function anyhow. She does suffer from ear infections and will be treated for that the next couple of weeks also. She has no teeth and has suffered in the past from bad periodontal disease which has caused her bottom jaw to wither in. Foster mom has been working with her to find her food bowl and helping her eat till she gets the hang of it in her own. She is doing well at drinking her water. The good news is that her bloodwork came back good, she is heartworm negative and her fecal was negative. She has been spayed. Her heart sounds good and her body is ok, just needs to get her skin healthy and put a couple of pounds on her. She is now up to date on all shots and is on heartworm and flea prevention. She will be microchipped when she has her eye surgery. Dottie Belle is very sweet and does what most Senior dogs do. She adores her new soft big bed, loves to eat, enjoys her water and wants love and affection. Never underestimate how much love a senior dog can give when rescued. She needs a forever place to live the rest of her life in feeling loved, secure never having to wonder if she will be clean safe and fed. If you are interested in giving Dottie Belle that please email Foster mom with more questions.

Initial Bio 11/5/20: Dottie Belle came into Rescue this week. She came from a shelter in TN and she is in pretty bad shape at the moment. She is weak and super skinny. She has no teeth and her bottom jaw has withered in, she needs help eating her soft food and she loves it so much. No telling how much food she had to eat before she ended up in the shelter. One of eyes crusts over and is sunk in a bit and her other eye is cloudy. She has her Vet appointment Monday and we will find out what all is going on with this sweetie and she can enjoy a new life being cared for and loved.

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.

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!

Bailyr
Texas
Bailyr aka Bear Bear

Bailyr is a 12-14-year-old, 4 lb. Yorkie girl who is being fostered near Fort Worth, Tx.

Due to Covid only Texas Applicants will be considered

INITIAL BIO: 04/05/21: This sweet 4lb baby came to United Yorkie Rescue on March 19 with her sister Katie (aka Kitty) after being confiscated by Animal Services from a situation where the owner could no longer care for them. Little Bailyr (aka Bear Bear) is a senior around 12 -14 years, but what a spry bundle of love!

Her age and her vets also feel these babies lived a life of somewhat confinement, she has some physical health issues but that doesnt stop her from following foster mom and dad everywhere, even with her arthritic patellas. We are addressing that with some great joint medication. Along the way, she wasnt able to keep her jaw, most likely due to bad dental hygiene. Her vetting and shots are all up to date and even though she is a senior, she got her spay to make sure she wouldnt develop any future problems such as cancer or a uterine infection called pyometra.

Bailyr needed to be shaved when she went for her vetting because her hair was so matted and long. She also had nails that had grown into their pads that kept her from getting around. As you see in her photo, she will have a beautiful gold and black coat once again. She is housebroken, loves to hang with her sister Katie. They both love to lay on a cozy blanket next to each other. They love to sleep in their open crate at night, snuggled together on a cozy blanket wrapped in a blanket where they can bury their little heads.

Bailyr does well with other dogs. She loves her sister Katie and they are bonded and so sweet together they would love to stay together. A perfect family for them is someone who is retired and would love to care for these easy going, lovable girls. Please look at Katie's bio here in Looking for Love. If you feel you have the perfect home for these seniors please fill out the application here at www.uyr.us or email foster mom at uyrtxbets@gmail.com for any questions regarding these sweet angels.

Baxter
Texas
Baxter TX (nee Nicky)

Meet Baxter, an adorable 10 year old, 13 pound Yorkie boy being fostered in Pflugerville, TX. Due to COVID concerns, only Texas applicants will be considered.

THANK YOU TO BAXTER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Lynne Turner, Kerry Redding, Lynne Turner, Mary Mays-Delamater, Sandy Pagnotta, Ruthanne Sebesta

Bio Update 3/17/21 - BAXTER STILL NEEDS YOUR DONATIONS, LOVE, AND PRAYERS!

We are getting ready for Baxter's upcoming surgery (2nd attempt), on April 26th, to repair his palatal oronasal fistula. Basically, Baxter has a hole in the roof of his mouth, leading into the sinus cavity, that the vet believes was caused by trauma. Baxter is such a healthy and happy guy outside of this issue and is eager to find his furever home!

Baxter is also on the mend from a nasty UTI, with some broad spectrum antibiotics and an amazing cranberry supplement. Overall, this little LOVEBUG is doing fantastic and thriving with the feeding techniques we have mastered! We are continuing to cut up his wet food into little squares, and hand feeding him. With this approach, we are able to push past the hole in his upper palate and he swallows the wet food with almost no aspiration. He still aspirates a lot when he drinks water, which prevents him from fully hydrating. To combat this, he gets a few syringes of Pedialyte throughout the day, as well as multiple watering stations, throughout his foster home, with ice cubes to entice this sweet angel to drink more frequently.

Baxter has been a trooper throughout all of his additional care, because I think he realizes life is so much better when you feel better!! After a short adjustment, Baxter has become an amazing cuddler. Baxter walks well on a leash, takes pills with ease, enjoys bathing (including blueberry facials), and post bath blow drying! Baxter has even begun to line up with his foster brothers for brushing and to have his eyes and mouth wiped daily.

Per the vets direction, Baxter is on a Probiotic (FortiFlora) for gut health, Canine Fish oil (Omegas to help with a healthy heart, skin and coat, brain & joint function), as well as Glucosamine with Chondroitin to keep his strutt perfect, because Baxter is a very active little guy and he has places to go!! Please note that these are not necessary supplements, but with neglect and age, they can certainly help him maintain and even improve his overall health!

Baxter will soon be ready for his furever, so please fill out an application if you would like to be considered or contact his foster parents with any questions - uyr.yorkies4life@gmail.com.

BIO UPDATE: 01/25/21. Baxter had surgery last week for his neuter and to fix the hole in the roof of his mouth. The vet has no idea how it happened, however it is definitely from an injury. The vet performed a skin graft, however 3 days later Baxter somehow managed to rip the stitches and the hole is back. He has a consultation with a specialist on February 2, where they'll tell us what can be done. He's eating well, now that the foster mom has found a thick pate he can just swallow that doesn't go into his sinuses. He's a happy boy who loves sleeping in foster mom and dad's bed, and demands belly rubs in the morning upon waking up. Potty training is going well, and he even has asked to go outside a few times.

Baxter would be happy in a home as an only dog, or small dogs (he gets along with those fine). Cats and larger dogs we would not recommend. He is also great with kids. Foster mom will update more after his consultation!

INITIAL BIO. 12/08/20. Howdy! My name is Baxter. Nice to meet you! I had been residing in a shelter in North Texas, where I was taken as I was roaming the streets. No one has come to get me though, so the nice folks at UYR took me in! My foster mom just got me groomed and oh my gosh do I feel and look better! Like, is there a Tinder for dogs? (Oh, won't need that as they're getting me neutered next week anyway....oh well). My foster mom said she'll know more about how house trained I am after that...I will say I have not done #2 in the house! I even asked to go outside last night.

One fun fact about me is that I have no teeth. I think it makes me pretty special (hello, cute tongue hanging out)! My foster mom found a nice thick pate she cuts up that I can eat just fine! I need to gain some weight so that's perfect for me (I'm about 11 lbs right now...and gaining!). I get along great with other dogs....my foster family has 2 small and 2 big ones; I like 'em all! Cats? Not so much. I like their human kids, though! They give me belly rubs a lot....that's a favorite. I do sleep all night in a little bed they got me that is next to their bed.

As far as my age....well, I am not sure! The dogtor says I am "middle aged". My foster mom is too, and she said that's a pretty good age to be.

Buster
Texas
Buster Brown

Meet Buster Brown, a 12 year young, big Yorkie boy at 22 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

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 $707.52 on Buster Brown's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $100 in donations.

Butter
Texas
Butter

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.

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 yorkiefostertx@gmail.com.

Crystal is a very sweet 10 year old, 18 pound Yorkie girl being fostered in Fort Worth, TX. DUE TO COVID-19, NO OUT OF STATE ADOPTIONS WILL BE CONSIDERED.

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 yorkiefostertx@gmail.com.

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 yorkiefostertx@gmail.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 yorkieforstertx@gmail.com.

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.

Crystal was taken to surgery for immediate hysterectomy for pyometria. Two mammary tumors looked suspicious and were sent for pathology before proceeding with the remaining tumors. She is recovering well.

Crystal is only one of the Fortunate Four. Please consider helping with her care by using the donate button below and sharing her story.


To date we've spent $15144.32 on Crystal's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $5807.55 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.

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!

Adoption Pending

To date we've spent $360.72 on Emmie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $201.65 in donations.

Katie
Texas
Katie aka Kitty

Katie is a 10-year-old, 8 lb. Yorkie girl who is being fostered near Fort Worth, Tx.

Due to Covid only Texas Applicants will be considered

THANK YOU TO KATIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Barbara Burgess, Lauren Radencic

INITIAL BIO: 04/05/21 Katie (aka Kitty) came to our rescue on 3/19 from a shelter that was called to confiscate her and her sister Bailyr (aka Bear Bear) after it was determined that the owner could no longer care for these sweet girls.. Katie is approximately 10 years old and weighs around 6 lbs (soon going to be 4 lbs lol). Yes, she is very overweight for her size!

Ms Katie is going in for her spay and dental on 5/6 and will have some teeth pulled since it seems she has never had dental. Her back leg patellas were so stiff from lack of exercise or confinement, and because of her weight, that she could hardly walk. She tried so hard but would fall on her little tush and then drag her tiny overweight body. Now you should see her. With glucosamine shots and medication, and a really strict diet she is having a blast walking and climbing up little stairs. She gets going fast sometimes and falls a little until she rests then gets going again.

She and her sister, Baily, are two of the sweetest gentle babies who have so much love to give. She is housebroken, good with other dogs and her favorite is to snuggle next to you curled up in a blanket. An ideal family for her and Bailyr would be a retired person or someone who is home and has a lot of love and time to give these senior girls.

THANK YOU TO LUCKY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Ida Woodward, Sandy Pagnotta

Maxwell
Texas
Mister Maxwell

Meet Mister Maxwell, a precious 9 year old, 8 pound Yorkie mix boy being fostered in Austin, TX. Due to COVID concerns, no out-of-state applicants will be considered.

UPDATE BIO. 04/09/21. Mister Maxwell is slowly gaining his confidence back, after leaving his home of 9 years and coming to a strange new place. He's really well housetrained--no accidents at all! He will tell you if he really needs to go outside. He's great on the leash and loves going for walks. He loves snuggling and being held, and will follow me around the house when I move from room to room. While he can go up and down stairs by himself, he prefers to be carried--any excuse for a snuggle! This sweetheart is looking for his furever home, he'll make a great companion for someone looking for a pup to shower with attention.

INITIAL BIO: 03/18/21. Mister Maxwell is a super sweet, Spitz/Yorkie mix, who was surrendered when his previous owner could no longer take care of him. He was really sad to leave his home of 9 years, but is adapting well to a new environment.

He loves cuddling, being held, getting scritches, and going on walks and riding in the car. He's had his vetting and dental, and had 6 teeth pulled. But losing a few teeth hasn't slowed him down! He's healthy and energetic, but would love to just sit in your lap and snuggle. He is not ashamed to go up to strangers and ask to be petted, but is a little anxious around dogs bigger than him (which is most of them!) This cuddlebug is looking for someone who can give him the attention and love he deserves.


To date we've spent $634.29 on Mister Maxwell's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $0 in donations.

Pepper
Texas
Pepper

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: 3-30-21. Pepper has returned to united Yorkie Rescue after being in his adopter’s 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 Cushings, 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 let’s 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.

Pepper’s 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: uyr.yorkies4life@gmail.com

Paisley
Wisconsin
Paisley

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.
