Bandit

This adorable little Yorkie guy is Bandit. He is just 4.2 tiny pounds and 7 years old. Bandit is being fostered in Jacksonville, FL.

THANK YOU TO BANDIT'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Valerie Chavis, Phillip Kelley, Barbara Burgess

UPDATED BIO 12/06/2019: Bandit just entered our rescue a week ago. He was surrendered due to his severe dental disease and costs for care. Poor Banditís mouth and face were extremely tender and he definitely didn't like it touched. Fast Forward a few days - Bandit had his dental and surprisingly he still has teeth left!

Bandit is a well-behaved little boy who just wants to be loved by his human. He will go outside in a fenced yard to do his business. Foster Mom considers him house-trained provided he is taken out on a regular basis. Bandit enjoys sleeping in Foster Momís lap during the day and on the bed with her at night. He is a good eater and will soon be able to eat dry kibble again once his mouth heals from the dental.

Now that Bandit has had his dental, his sweet personality will no doubt continue to come out. It will be about 2 weeks before he will be ready for adoption. Bandit gets along well with other dogs and kitty cats. Stay tuned to our Looking for Love page for updates as Bandit continues to recover from his dental. New pictures will also be posted after his spa day.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Banditís tiny size, he can only be adopted into an adult-only home. NO EXCEPTIONS!

INITIAL BIO 11/29/19: This tiny little guy just arrived at his foster home today. His foster mom said he is so little she probably can carry him around in her pocket. He most likely won't fit into a pocket unless it is pretty big, but he is a small, sweet, adorable fellow.

Bandit was sadly surrendered because he needs some major dental care that will be expensive. This cutie will be seeing the vet on Monday and we will know more about what lies ahead for him. This special little boy will be looking for his final forever home once he gets his mouth and teeth taken care of. Stay tuned. More to come on little Bandit.


To date we've spent $323.00 on Bandit's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $250.00 in donations.

I am looking for an active family to love me
Florida
Bruno

Bruno is only 2-1/2 years old. He weighs a chubby 16 lbs. He is being fostered in Vero Beach, FL.

UPDATED BIO 12/12/2019: Bruno has been in his foster home for only a few days. His surrendering owners loved him very much, but their life situation changed and they felt Bruno would get more attention and a happier life with another loving family and home.

Bruno is as cute as he can be, but still very much a puppy, so he is very high-energy and loves to romp around and is curious about his surroundings. Bruno needs an active family with children 10+ years old that can commit at least 15-18 years with him. He has been crated a lot in his young life and when he has freedom to roam, he is so excited. Because he hasn't had enough exercise and activity for such a young dog, Bruno needs to lose at least 2-4 lbs to be a healthier weight; his foster parents have put him on a much healthier diet and he is getting lots of play time and exercise.

Bruno has picked up the leash-training quickly and walks well as long as there is a bit of slack on the leash. He is getting along very well with the two little resident yorkies in the home, as expected. He needs some reinforcement on his house-training and his foster parents are working with him on this as well. He does not seek out his crate any longer, which is a very good thing. He has already found his way into his foster parentsí bed, oh-oh. He is a big happy, lovable goofball puppy who loves everybody and is so enjoying his newfound freedom outside of the crate where he has sadly spent most of his life.

Brunoís perfect home would be one where he had another dog closed to his size and age to play with Ė still being a very young puppy, he is now enjoying playtime very much. PLEASE NOTE: Bruno was previously in a home with children under the age of 10 years old and due to his puppy exuberance and rough play, he did not do well with them. Only homes with children age 10+ years will be considered for this sweet boy.

INITIAL BIO 12/08/2019: Bruno just arrived in UYR today. His surrendering owner loved him very much, but her life situation changed and she felt Bruno would get more attention and a happier life with another loving home.

Bruno is as cute as he can be, but still very much a puppy so he is very high-energy and loves to play. Bruno needs an active family with children older than 10 years old that can commit at least 15-18 years with him. He has been crated a lot in his young life and when he has freedom to roam, he is so excited. Because he hasn't had enough exercise and activity fort such a young dog, Bruno needs to lose at least 2-4 lbs to be a healthier weight. His Foster Parents will be working on preparing him a much healthier diet and ensure he gets lots of exercise Bruno isnít leash-trained, so his Foster Parents will be working with him on this as well. Bruno will need to see the vet soon and get updated vaccinations. There is so much more to know about Bruno, so stay tuned as his Foster Parents get to know him better.


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

I am feeling kinda better.

I was at the shelter and was so sick.
Florida
Chance

This is Chance. He has been very sick. Chance is a 9-1/2 year-old Cairn Terrier/Yorkie mix. He is a sweet, bigger boy at 15.6 pounds. Chance is being fostered in Dunedin, FL.

THANK YOU TO CHANCE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sandy Pagnotta, Irene and Peter Havas in memory of darling Happy, Jane St. John, Michael Messer

Initial Bio 12/6/19 United Yorkie Rescue knew we had to take a chance on Chance or he had no chance. Chanceís owner passed away, but no one knew. Chance was alone in the home and horribly went an unknown number of days without food or water. When his ownerís death was discovered Chance was taken to the shelter. He arrived there the evening of December 4th with extremely severe dehydration, hypothermia, and vascular collapse. He was brought into the shelter unable to rise from lying on his side. He had bloody diarrhea and was vomiting dark material. He was breathing with great effort and wheezing. He was not interested in food and could only pick his head up for short periods of time. His blood was dark and thick.

The shelter immediately started fluids and medicine. They stabilized his electrolytes and got him well hydrated, but were highly concerned about secondary problems related to his severe dehydration Ė damage to his organs, damage to the GI tract, a secondary bacterial infection due to intestinal tract damage, and swelling of the brain due to the abrupt change in the electrolyte content of the blood. The shelter could only do so much. Chance needed to be hospitalized at a veterinary clinic to be monitored for problems and given appropriate support care.

The shelter called an officer for immediate transport to the emergency clinic overnight. They notified the on-call vet there to monitor him and give him supportive care. They were told to euthanize him if his systems start to shut down and he was in organ failure. The emergency vet did bloodwork and continued with medicine and fluids. Chance started to do better. When he returned from the emergency clinic to the shelter the next day, he was able to stand and he was eating and drinking. His chemistry was improving and everything was looking better. The shelter continued with fluids and medication.

Today the call went out for a rescue to give Chance a chance. He needed to leave the shelter as soon as possible and taken to a 24-hour veterinary care facility where he can continue to receive supportive care and appropriate treatment for extreme dehydration and any other medical issues that would arise because of that. And United Yorkie Rescue answered that call.

Chance was picked up from the shelter and taken to the 24-hour emergency care vet where he currently is. They are treating him with fluids, will do bloodwork, and monitor him around the clock. All signs point to Chance improving steadily. So far there have been no signs of organ failure or brain damage. It is hoped that Chance can go to his foster home tomorrow Dec. 7th or Sunday Dec. 8th and start his new happy life.

This is just the beginning of Chanceís story. There is so much more to find out and know about this fellow. Chance is getting his second chance; he was only hours away from his life ending and his story being over. We are not letting that happen. But Chanceís care is going to be expensive. The estimate for his time at the 24-hour veterinary care hospital is already projected to be between 1200 to 1400 dollars, and that is just the start. He will need all his vaccinations, possibly a dental and what other veterinary care is required. Help us continue to give Chance his second chance and make a donation to help United Yorkie Rescue pay for his medical expenses. We gave Chance his second chance, wonít you to that too? Chance and UYR will be so grateful.


To date we've spent $232.62 on Chance's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $175.00 in donations.

I am a happy girlie in my foster home. Before Grooming

I will make a loving companion - I had a spa day, my hair will grow back
Florida
CoCo FL

CoCo is a yorkie/silky/poodle mix sweetheart who is 9 years old and weighs a chubby 17 lbs. Sweet CoCo is being fostered in Dunedin, FL.

THANK YOU TO COCO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Janet Hart, Samantha Jones, Samantha Jones, Samantha Jones, Samantha Jones, Samantha Jones, Samantha Jones, Erika Versace

UPDATED BIO 11/18/2019: CoCo here. I wanted to let everybody know some things about me. I love my foster mommy and daddy and all my four-legged foster friends. Really, I do. But Ö.. I really want a family to call my own. I donít know why I havenít found my purfect home yet, because Iím such a sweet girl - at least foster mom says so and I believe her. I get along great with other dogs, older kids (12 and over), and heck - I even get along with the cat!!

Iím not real used to walking on a leash, but foster mom says Iím getting much better at it. I still want to tug a little so I can smell things along the way, but Iím working on that. I love, love, love to play with my foster siblings, so the perfect home for me would have another laid-back, playful doggie. When I play, sometimes I like to bolt through the house really fast, so I need to have some room to do that. Iím also really good at just chilling on the chair next to my foster family. Iím just a quiet young lady who loves to be a snuggle bug.

When the nice lady came to pick me up from that awful shelter, I was kind of a mess. I had a yeast infection on most of my body. My ears were infected really bad, and to be honest, I didnít think Iíd ever get out of there. I couldnít be adopted right away because I needed a lot of medicine and baths, so thatís why United Yorkie Rescue stepped in. WhewÖ. now, Iím no longer itchy and my hair is growing back, and the really good news is that I didnít lose any hearing from my bad ear infection.

Okay, hereís the really serious part. I started having seizures at my foster familyís home shortly after I got there. Because they werenít that frequent, the vet decided that I didnít have to take medicine - yet. But then I had another one, so I had to start taking seizure meds. I love to take my pills, because they taste like Braunschweiger (liverwurst). Hey, wait a minute! You mean thereís pills in my treats?!

Whoops, back to the serious stuff. I had one seizure on my medicine and now I just take a little bit more of it, and I havenít had a seizure since September 15th. So far, my yummy medicine is working. Iíll always be on the medicine, which costs about $11 a month. It hasnít caused me any problems, so Iím really happy about that.

Oh Ė one more thing. Iím also working on my manners with going potty in the house. As long as I go out often enough, I prefer to do my business outside. Iím just not sure how to tell you I need to go, but Iím trying to figure out that part. It would be good for me to have a home where there is one stay-at-home parent to take me out frequently. Foster mom said that I was a bit too ďfluffyĒ so I am on a food now that doesnít have as many calories in it so that I can get my girlie figure back. Now that you know everything about me, why donít you fill out an application and tell me about you and see if weíre a match!?

As always, if you canít adopt, please consider donating to the wonderful rescue group that saved me and so many others every day. Even though Iím doing better, I still have many brothers and sisters out there that need help, too. Can you do it for me - for usÖPlease donate. And donít forget. Adopt. Donít Shop.

UPDATED BIO 10/02/2019: CoCo is a sweet, adorable 9 year young dog who still thinks she is a puppy! Our little Miss CoCo is always ready for a little romping around and playing, just like a little puppy would be. She is almost healed from her severe yeast skin infection, as well as her equally severe ear infection. It is possible that she may continue to need regular baths with a medicated shampoo. She just finished her last pill for her skin issues, as well as an injection (Cytopoint) to stop the itching, so itís uncertain if she will need to continue with either of them - only time will tell. The protocol is to give one injection of Cytopoint and then repeat in 4 weeks. If CoCo does require the Cytopoint for the rest of her life, the cost is approximately $60/injection and will only have to be administered every 6-8 weeks.

Since CoCoís last update, unfortunately she had 3 more seizures, and is now on a twice daily medication (phenobarbital), and will be on this for the rest of her life. Since starting on her seizure medication (September 15), she has not had any more seizures. The monthly cost of the Phenobarbital for the seizures is approximately $31 per month.

Now onto the wonderful things about CoCo! She is a very, very sweet young lady who loves to lay close to her foster mom and gladly welcomes any petting she can get. She hasnít slept in bed with foster parents, but is very comfortable finding a place to snuggle up close by. She gets along great with all of her (7) other four-legged siblings, including the cat. She does very well while getting a bath, and afterward, runs back and forth through the house like a little kid. She loves her toys and will sometimes entertain herself with one of her toys all by herself.

She is very good about taking her medicine, as it is hidden in a treat that she loves. We are working on her house-training, but she is a smart little girlie and will eventually get it. She will need repetition and frequent trips outside in her new home, as well as a patient and understanding adoptyer. CoCo will go potty as soon as you let her outside, but still has accidents inside.

If you think you could love CoCo and get all your love returned in kind, then fill out an application and letís see if youíre a match!

UPDATED BIO 08/31/2019: CoCo has really opened up in her foster home Ė little by little, and is now showing her foster parents what her adoption needs are. She gets along great with the other dogs. She has met the kitty cat, and shows no signs of aggression towards her at all. CoCo loves to play with one of her foster siblings running through the house full speed ahead! She also loves to get her toy, throw it up in the air and chase after it. When she gets excited, like when foster mom or dad come home, she runs through the house bouncing around like a puppy. She is a very active 9 year old sweetheart.

CoCo rides well in the car, whether she is in her crate or wearing her harness and safety leash. CoCo is learning her manners inasfar as house-training, but because sheís on medicine that increases her need to go more often, itís hard to tell how she is doing. She still has accidents in the house, but also knows to go while outside. Her foster parents are working with her on this.

CoCoís prior skin and ear infections continue to get better every day. She has a re-check coming up soon to see if sheís ready to discontinue her medicine regimen, which also includes medicated baths. CoCo has had one seizure since coming into foster care 6 weeks ago . It is believed that this was an isolated seizure and does not require medication at this time. However, it she does have any further seizures while in foster care, she will likely be put on anti-seizure medication.

Because of CoCoís playful personality, she needs a home with at least one other playful dog. The age of the other dog isnít so important as long as (s)he wants to romp around a little with CoCo. She also needs a bigger home to be able to run through while playing. She would not be happy in a confined space, such as an apartment or condo. Children older than 10 years old would be okay.

UPDATED BIO 07/25/2019: This sweet girl arrived in United Yorkie Rescue recently from a high-kill shelter. CoCo was a loving and loyal companion all her life to her former owners, and when she became older and needed veterinary care, her previous owner did everything she could to try to help CoCo, and when she was unable to do more, she sadly relinquished CoCo to the shelter.

CoCo has been in her foster home for only a couple of days, but has proven herself to be quite a sweetheart. She was good in her crate on the ride home. She allowed Foster Mom to bathe her without any trouble. She gets along great with other dogs, although she doesnít yet mingle with them too much, but when she does, thereís absolutely not a hint of trouble. And she hasnít had any issues with the cat. She has had a very rough life for a while before she came into foster care, and yet she still loves to be petted and loved on.

CoCo has already been seen by the vet, and what we learned is that she does have a pretty bad yeast infection on a fairly large portion of her body. She also has severe ear infections, which is likely causing her to be a little hearing-impaired, and hopefully that will resolve itself once the infection heals. CoCo will be getting medicated baths every other night, as well as several medications for her yeast infection, along with an ear cleaner and medicated drops for her ears. The vet thinks that her skin condition will clear up, but that she will likely have dark pigmented skin where the horrible yeast infection had been untreated for a long period of time. Luckily, itís not in places that you would normally see, and her cute little curls will still be adorable.

CoCo was an absolute angel while getting her ears cleaned and her other vet care Ė sweet girlie! It should be noted that even though she was turned into the shelter with a history of ďepilepsyĒ, she has NOT had any seizures both at the facility, or in her foster home.

Weíre still learning a lot about our adorable sweet girl, so check back for updates on her. We are currently accepting applications for her, but she canít be adopted until she is done with all of her medical care.

INITIAL BIO 07/23/2019: This sweet girl arrived in United Yorkie Rescue today from a high-kill shelter. CoCo was a loving and loyal companion all her life to her former owners, and once she became older and needed veterinary care, she was dumped at the shelter - heartbreaking! It is believed that she is house-trained and likes all people.

The former owners told the shelter that she had a seizure disorder; however, no seizure activity was ever observed during the 9 days she was at the shelter. CoCo does have evidence of chronic skin changes and otitis and also has moderate dental disease, consistent with her breed and age. She will see the vet tomorrow, so please stay tuned for more information on CoCo.


To date we've spent $1226.37 on CoCo FL's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $270.00 in donations.

Daisy Mae

Daisy Mae is an adorable 7 month old puppy girl. She currently weighs 9 lbs. Daisy is being fostered in Leesburg, FL..

THANK YOU TO DAISY MAE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Karry Rogers, Jane St. John, Sandy Pagnotta, Jeanette Howell, Dawn Dion, Maureen McCosker, Robin Nyberg, Mary Whitaker, Barbara Burgess, Irene and Peter Havas in memory of darling Happy, Holly Keller, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Sandy Pagnotta, Brandy Swanson, Ilene Rand, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Mary Guimaraes, Sharon Stryszyk

UPDATED BIO 11/25/2019: Daisy would like to tell you about herselfÖÖkeep reading.

Hello. Itís me - your favorite puppy friend Daisy Mae. I had my big liver shunt surgery in September and did my 4 weeks of restricted activity to let it heal. Finally, I was released on account of my good behavior. I am such a good puppy. Okay, the truth is I donít always have good behavior, but my foster mom and dad said my 4 weeks were up and I was free to run and play and have fun again. Sometimes I have so much fun I get into a little trouble. I like to tear up the toilet paper and chew on the doggie toy box. Oh - and shoes and socks. I love shoes and socks, and if they are within my reach, I make them mine.

My foster parents think I am the sweetest puppy ever, but they donít always appreciate my kind of fun. What do they expect? I am a puppy after all. The most fun I have is when I play with the other young doggie in the house or outside. We wrestle each other, we run around in the backyard after each other, and we have the best times ever. I like to play fetch-the-toy or the ball with my people, too. The older dogs donít like to play with me much. They do more resting than I like to do. My foster mom said that is because theyíre older and older dogs like to rest a lot. Well, sometimes I like to rest too, and now I get to rest on the big bed with everyone. I used to have to sleep in a little kennel all by myself, but I donít have any accidents on the bed, so now I get to sleep on the big bed with everyone, and I do a good job of sleeping with everyone, too.

Besides playing, my other favorite thing is to give kisses to my foster mom and dad and everyone else. I can give kisses and more kisses all day long. I love everyone I meet and they love me. I am not happy when my people leave the house even though I have other doggie friends in my foster home. I just love people so much. Here is another thing; my foster mom and dad said I am the best eater ever. I win the golden doggie bowl award every day.

On November 14th, I saw the nice doctor who did my big operation. He gave me a test - they call it a bile acids test. The best news is that I passed. Now I get to eat the regular food like the other pups in the house. I am stilling eating my special food for liver shunt dogs, and my foster parents are adding some real doggie food mixed in. I am doing fine so far. My surgeon vet set it will take 4 weeks for me to be on regular dog food only, as long as I keep doing okay with it. Maybe by the middle or end of December I will be eating only regular doggie food. It is going to take me all that time so my body can slowly adjust to the new food and not get shocked with the regular food.

Here is my list for my perfect forever home Ė pay attention! I would love another young dog about my size to play with. Older dogs don't like to play as much as I do. Sometimes I bother the older dogs in my foster home wanting them to play with me. They get mad at me and bark at me. And I get mad at them too because they won't play with me. I can sort of walk on a leash okay, but I donít love that so much. So, if you have a fenced yard for me, I would like that even more. I sure would like a mom or dad who can be home a lot of the time with me. I might like some well-behaved kids who are ready to play with me a lot, not too rough, but just right. I like to run around so they better like to run around with me. I haven't really met many kids yet, so I'm not positive about all that, but I think I might like them. My foster mom thinks by the time I am all grown I might be around 10 pounds or even a little more. I might be the perfect size for a family with well-behaved kids 9 or 10 years old and older.

As much as I love other dogs, I really want to be with people too because I love people so much. Also, I am still learning doggie manners like house training. I need someone with patience and understanding to continue helping me learn my good doggie manners.

I just got groomed and the nice groomer person explained to me that because I had so many mats my foster mom and dad couldn't brush and comb out, she had to shave all my beautiful hair off. Now it can grow back and be brushed easily. I hope my curly hair comes back, I think it will. My foster mom told me not to worry, I still have an adorable little face and when my hair grows back without all those mats and knots, I will be even more beautiful.

My foster mom said that now that I can start to eat real food, I can get ready to find my forever home. Maybe I can be your holiday puppy. If you already love me and canít wait to make me your forever little girl, you can put in an application for me. When itís time we will consider all the applications and look at them together until we find the most perfect family for the most perfect puppy. ME!

Please understand that I am only 7 months old. I need a forever home where my family can assure me of a life together with them for the next 15 or more years. Please consider that before wanting to make me your forever baby. Thanks for getting to know me, Daisy Mae, Greatest Puppy Ever.

Oh, one more thing. My operation was pretty expensive and if you think you might like to donate to help United Yorkie Rescue pay for that surgery that saved my life, please click the donate button on my page on Looking for Love on our website @ www.unitedyorkierescue.org.

UPDATED BIO 10/20/2019: Hello. Itís me - your favorite puppy friend, Daisy Mae. I had my big liver shunt surgery last month and did my 4 weeks of restricted activity to let it heal. It felt like I was in jail and no one cared that I wanted to get out. Finally, I was released on account of my good behavior. I am such a good puppy. Okay, the truth is I donít always have good behavior, but my foster mom and dad said my 4 weeks were up and I was free to run and play and have fun again.

After my test my foster mom said she will know what I will need in my forever home and we can start finding me the perfect one.

As much as I love other dogs, I really want to be with people too because I love people so much. Also, I am still learning doggie manners like house training. I need someone with patience and understanding to continue helping me learn my good doggie manners.

My foster mom thinks by the time I am full grown I might be around 9 pounds or even a little more. I would be the perfect size for a family with well-behaved kids maybe 9 or 10 years old and older.

My foster mom said that since we wonít know what kind of forever home I need until my test in November, she canít consider any applications until my results come back. So please wait until then. If you already love me and canít wait to make me your forever little girl, you can put in an application now. She said she will hold your application in my file, and when itís time we will consider all the applications and look at them together until we find the most perfect family for the most perfect puppy. ME!

Hereís one more very important thing. The wonderful people at United Yorkie Rescue, who saved me, said if you want to help pay for my expensive surgery please make a donation. My foster mom said every single penny helps. Just look at my sweet puppy face, donít you think I was worth saving? Please be an angel and make a donation. THANK YOU!

UPDATED BIO 09/22/2019: Daisy Mae had her liver shunt surgery. Her surgeon was able to successfully place the ameroid ring constrictor to start the process of it slowly closing the shunt over the next 8 weeks.

This sweet, loving active puppy is not a happy girl in the recuperation process. She has to be either crated or restrained for the next 4 weeks while the shunt continues to close and her big surgery heals. Daisy only wants to run around and play with the other dogs, but she canít and so she sits sadly in her crate watching them, or she is leashed on to her foster mom and dadís bed. This way she can at least be near her foster mom and dad at night and the other dogs when they hang out on the bed during the day.

Daisy loves to give kisses and will kiss anyone she is close enough to reach. She is happy when she can get out into the backyard, even though she is on a leash, and walk around for a little while to do her business. She is the happiest, most loving little puppy who truly deserved this surgery.

In 8 weeks (November 14th), Daisy will go back to the surgeon for her follow up bile acids test. If all goes well and her levels are normal, over the following 3 to 4 weeks, she can slowly be transitioned from the prescription food to regular dog food.

Daisy wonít be ready for her forever home until at least mid-December or even the end of December depending on how quickly she handles her recovery and the transition to the food. At this time we are not considering any applications until we know what her bile acids test show on her follow-up visit on 11/14.

Daisyís surgery was expensive, but it has given her the chance for a healthy, long life. Please make a donation to Daisy Mae to help United Yorkie Rescue pay for her much needed surgery. It is only with your help that we can help puppies like Daisy Mae and all the other dogs who so badly need our help to live. Thank you.

UPDATED BIO 09/01/2019: Darling little Daisy Mae, our sweet liver shunt puppy, is scheduled for her shunt surgery September 16th. Currently she is only being fed a low-protein diet with the special Rx food designed for liver care. Even her treats are special low-protein treats. She loves her food and will gobble it all up. Daisy eats separately from the other dogs to ensure she doesnít eat anything but her special food.

Daisy was doing great on the special diet; but as often happens with liver shunt dogs, she recently had a little set-back. She became lethargic, didnít eat all day and had a bad case of diarrhea. Daisyís foster mom called the surgeon and told him what was going on with her. Her surgeon said that this is something that is common with liver shunt dogs. He said to give her some Nutri-Cal oral gel, which would provide her with some energy, and to reduce the amount of her food until she was feeling better. He suggested taking her to the vet and have her checked to make sure she was okay Ė this was done as a precaution and Daisy was doing good. She was given some anti-diarrhea meds and within a day Daisy Mae was her normal, acting-like-a-puppy self again.

Daisy is such a sweet, happy puppy. We are hoping that when she gets her surgery, there will be only one shunt that can surgically be closed with the constrictor. It takes the constrictor several weeks to slowly close the shunt, but after that she will be a healthy, active puppy who will have many years ahead of her. If there are multiple shunts, there is no way to constrict them. If that is the case, Daisy will be on the special food for life, and although she will have years left, she most likely wonít have as many years and as many healthy years as a dog who was able to have the liver shunt surgery. We will all know more on September 16th.

Daisy had her first official grooming and did really well for a puppy having the first grooming of her life. She was not perfect, but she tolerated it. The only thing she hated was having all the hair that was growing in her ears plucked out. She didnít understand how important that is to keeping her ears healthy and infection-free. Even though she fussed and whined throughout her grooming, after it was all over she gave her groomer lots of love and kisses.

Daisy loves everyone. It doesnít matter if she hasnít seen her foster mom or dad for 5 minutes or 5 hours, she still gives them kisses galore. She really likes sleeping with her foster mom and dad, and if she wakes up in the night, she has to give them non-stop kisses until they let her know itís enough and time to go back to sleep.

Daisy enjoys playing with toys and chewing on the nylabones. She will go to the doggie toy box and pick out the toy she is interested in - for the moment. When she is tired of her chosen toy, she will go find another. She has learned how to climb up and down the doggie steps to the bed and has made herself at home with the other dogs in her foster home. She loves people, she loves the other dogs, she is just full of love and life for everything and everyone.

Daisy is still learning her house-training manners. She will go outside, but she will still go inside, too. Her foster parents are working on this, but it is possible she will not be totally house-trained by the time she is ready for her forever home. Daisy still has 5-6 months of growing to do. Currently she is 6.5 pounds but may end up being an 8-10 pound girlie. Yorkies grow until they are 10 months old so it is hard to know how big she will get when she is fully-grown.

Daisy will not be ready for her forever home for at least 2 to 3 months. She will need 4-6 weeks to recover from her surgery, and if the shunt surgery is successful, she will then require at least another 4-5 weeks to transition from the Rx food to regular dog food. Applications will not be considered until we know how the surgery went and what the future holds for her. Any applications that are submitted before then will be held in her file to be considered when we know what kind of a forever home she will need.

Daisyís surgery will be expensive. Donations would be so appreciated and you will receive a special thank you for Daisy. Without the help of our rescue angels, we would not be able to save dogs like Daisy and the many others we save and the many, many more that still need saving. Every dollar helps, there is no donation too small and our appreciation will be huge.

INITIAL BIO 08/17/2019: Sweet Daisy Mae has a Liver Shunt and will need expensive surgery in order to survive. This little puppy is ready to give kisses to everyone. She likes to be with her foster mom and dad, but also is keeping herself busy getting to know her new home, backyard and fur friends. She seems to be okay in her doggie crate, though she would rather be with her foster

Daisy Mae will need to remain in her foster home most likely for 3 months. No applications will be considered until after her surgery and subsequent follow-up. The surgery will ensure that the ameroid constrictor (which slowly closes the shunt) was successfully placed. At the follow-up exam 4-6 weeks after the surgery, we then may know if her constrictor fully closed her shunt. Any applications received will be kept in a file to be considered when we know she is ready for adoption.

Daisy Mae's surgery will be expensive. This life-saving surgery will ensure that Daisy Mae will live a long, healthy life. Please help us help this little puppy to have the life she deserves. If surgery will give her that life, then let's make sure she gets it. Please donate.

I was so sad at the shelter. I am happy I was rescued.

Delilah

MEET DELILAH. Delilah is a cute little yorkie who is 10 years old and weighs 10.7 lbs. Delilah is being fostered in Orlando, FL

THANK YOU TO DELILAH'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Irene and Peter Havas in memory of darling Happy, Erika Versace, Karen Ortega Carbonell

UPDATED BIO 11/19/2019: Hey ya'll - Delilah here. I arrived in my new foster home this past Saturday. The very next day I was invited to this wild and crazy fun-filled shindig with lots of other foster moms and dads. Wow, so many people and even more UYR doggies. I had a great time and met lots of other doggies and people, too. Everybody thought I was beautiful Ė just sayiní ÖÖÖ

Before I was sprung out of the shelter, I somehow found myself on the streets. I was taken to Animal Control where they determined that I needed medical help, so they contacted UYR and quicker than a speeding bullet, I was outta there. I'm so happy to be off the streets and have a nice warm bed and really good food to eat. Oh, and a foster mom that loves me and lets me know that I am safe and will never ever be on the streets again.

My foster mom took me to the dogtor yesterday. I was examined, x-rayed and had blood drawn. Yikes! The dogtor says I have three mammary tumors, one as big as a golf ball. So, I'll need to have an expensive surgery. I will also be spayed and have my teeth cleaned at the same time.

Here's what else the dogtor said. I'm a little too thin at 10.7 lbs, so I need to gain a little bit of weight, maybe a half pound to be a healthier weight. My eyes are hazy from being 10 years old, but I do not have cataracts. I have lenticular sclerosis, which is a bluish transparent haze that develops in the lens of the eye in middle-aged to senior dogs. Did you know this happens to senior people, too? This is considered a normal change in the lens associated with aging, so no big deal. My vision may be a little bit impaired, but I see well enough to get around without difficulty. Sometimes, I don't see a hand coming towards me to giving me a pat, and it startles me. It's best to let me sniff the back of your hand first or call my name.

Hereís some wonderful things about me ÖÖ my foster mom says I'm a very good girl. I usually let her know when I need to go outside. I'm perfect riding in the car and I walk well on a leash. I am not a barker. I am a pretty good eater. I like to be held, or lie in your lap or be in my bed near you. Do you get my gist? In other words, I love to be with my person all the time. Oh, my foster mom says I snore Ė who knew? I like other small doggies, but the big ones are kinda scary to me. My foster mom doesn't know if I like cats or not.

My perfect home will have at least one stay-at-home parent. I don't like to be alone for long periods of time. Oh, and I need to let you know this too - No children, please. Foster mom asked me to let you know that if you would like to help with my surgery expenses, please click in the PayPal donation link below. If you donate to me, then that means UYR will continue to be able to take in other little needy doggies like me. Cool, huh?

NITIAL BIO 11/16/2019: Delilah just arrived in United Yorkie Rescue today - she was picked up as a stray and brought to animal control. We don't have any history on Delilah but this sweet girl is in need of some medical intervention. She has two huge mammary masses, dry flaky skin, and some skin issues. Poor Delilah was matted and unkempt so she has been neglected for a while. The good news is that she is heartworm negative and appears to be a very nice little girl who will receive lots of love in her foster home, have a clean, warm bed to sleep in and will see the vet very soon. Delilah's medial journey will be expensive, so if her story has pulled at your heartstrings, please consider donating to her vetting expenses so that UYR can continue to take in little Yorkies like Delilah.

I've Been Adopted!

To date we've spent $913.71 on Delilah's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $70.00 in donations.

Sweet Holly
Florida
Holly

Holly is 10 years old and weighs 9 lbs. This sweet little Chorkie (chihuahua/yorkie mix) is being fostered near Tampa, FL.

THANK YOU TO HOLLY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Jean Kirwan, Nestor Sanchez, Nestor Sanchez

UPDATED BIO 11/19/2019: Little Holly was found roaming the streets, alone and very scared. She was picked up by animal control and taken to the shelter. After spending several days in the shelter waiting and hoping for someone to come get her, no one did, so she became a United Yorkie Rescue pup.

Holly came to us with five large mammary tumor masses. She has had her surgery and it went very well. And BONUS Ė the mammary tumors were found to be benign Ė hooray! Holly was also spayed and had a dental. She is eating well and is scheduled to have her sutures out on 11/29.

Holly has really shown her personality since being in her foster home. She is very sweet and loves to sit on her person's lap. The perfect home for her would be a home where there is at least stay-at-home parent to give her cuddles and kisses. She does bark when she wants attention. She is not completely house trained, but her Foster parents are working on that and whoever adopts her will have to continue the training. A fenced in yard would be ideal, but it is not a deal breaker.

PLEASE NOTE: Holly does not get along with other dogs, but she loves all people, so she needs to be an only dog. She can only be adopted in an adult-only home Ė no children for Holly.

If Hollyís story has tugged at your heartstrings, please consider making a donation to UYR to cover the costs of her surgery so that we can continue to help other little homeless dogs like Holly.

INITIAL BIO 10/30/2019: Little Holly was found roaming the streets, alone and very scared. She was picked up by animal control and taken to the shelter. After spending several days in the shelter waiting and hoping for someone to come get her, no one did, so she became a United Yorkie Rescue pup.

Holly has seen the vet and her heart and lungs sound great. But Holly needs surgery soon since she has several mammary tumor masses that must be removed. She had extensive labs done and once the results are in, hopefully surgery can be scheduled. Holly has moderate to severe dental disease that has to be taken care of as well and this will need to be done separately from her mammary mass removal. These surgeries can hopefully be done in a timely manner so that this little princess can be healthy and feel better.

In the short while Holly has been with her foster family, they say she is a sweet girl and a love bug!! She loves being on her foster parentsí laps and gladly gives lots and lots of kisses. She is also very playful. She is eating good and doing her business outside. She also appears to be crated-trained as well. She will come when Foster Mom calls her Ė sweet. She did great in the car ride to her foster home.

Foster Mom has determined that Holly prefers to be the only dog in the home as she doesnít care to share the attention/love of her foster parents. She would also be happiest if she was adopted into a home with at least one-stay-at-home parent as well.

There is so much more to know about Holly and her sweet personality and medical needs. We do know she will need surgery very soon. Hollyís surgery will be expensive, and if this sweet girlís story has touched your heart, please consider making a donation towards her medical expenses. It will be greatly appreciated and will ensure that UYR can continue to take in medically-needy and oh-so-deserving dogs like Holly.

Jack Ryder

MEET JACK RYDER. Jack is a beautiful mostly-blond Yorkie who is 6-1/2 years old and weighs 4.7 lbs. He is being fostered in Tallahassee, FL.

THANK YOU TO JACK RYDER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Barbara Burgess

UPDATED BIO 12/13/2019: Jack Ryder has only been in his foster home for a few days. His surrendering owners loved him but their life situation changed and they felt Jack would get more attention and have a happier life with another loving family and home.

Jack is a very sweet little boy who is continues to adapt well in his foster home. He has been crated a lot in his life and when he has freedom to roam outside, he gets so excited. He is very naÔve about things that most of us take for granted - the sound of the windshield wipers on the car when raining, the sounds of birds chirping and the hum of the boatsí motors in the lake Ė he is hearing these sounds for the first time in his life. He is a shy little boy but seeks out his humans for comfort and freely gives lots and lots of kisses. He is slowly getting used to being picked up and petted and he now seeks out his foster parents for attention. Jack appears to be house-trained, but he will need a home where he can be taken out every few hours to reinforce his new schedule of pottying. Leash-training is going well Ė he is a smart little boy who wants to please his people.

Jack saw the vet today and had all of his vaccinations Ė hooray! He received a wonderful report from the vet who said he was a very healthy little boy. He does have a few teeth in the front that are worn down, perhaps from being crated for hours and hours every day, and will need a dental soon. Otherwise he is in excellent health; the vet suggested that he could gain another Ĺ - 1 pound to be a healthier weight After his dental, Jack will be ready to go into his forever home. He would be okay if there was another dog in the home close to his age and size, but honestly, he prefers the company of his people more than the company of other dogs. Jack would prefer a home in which there is at least one stay-at-home parent.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Jack Ryderís small size, he cannot be adopted into a home with children under the age of 14 years old.

INITIAL BIO 12/08/2019: Jack Ryder just arrived in UYR today. His surrendering owner loved him very much, but her life situation has changed and she felt Jack would get more attention and a happier life with another loving home.

Jack is a very sweet, loving boy who loves nothing better that snuggling with his person all day long. He has been crated a lot in the last two years and when he has freedom to roam, he is so excited. Jack isnít leash-trained, so his Foster Parents will be working with him on this. He will need to see the vet soon and get updated vaccinations. There is so much more to know about Jack Ryder, so stay tuned as his Foster Parents get to know him better.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Jack Ryder's small size, he cannot be adopted into a home with children under the age of 14 years old.

Lexie

Lexie is a sweet little Maltese/Yorkie mix (a Morkie!) who is only 16 months old and weighs 8.8 lbs. This little princess is being fostered in North Fort Myers, FL.

THANK YOU TO LEXIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Pamela Powers

UPDATED BIO 12/12/2019: Lexie has now been in her foster home for two weeks now and is doing extremely well and settling in comfortably. She finally feels completely safe and unthreatened by unknown noises. She has found the toy box and is very comfortable getting out ALL the toys lol. She loves playing with the appropriate doggie toys and has not done what most puppies do Ė which is chew on shoes, furniture, etc.

Lexie is now on a high-quality food and has become a hearty eater. Her foster parents continue to work on house-training as it appears that no one has ever taken the time to teach her where it is Ė and is not Ė appropriate to do her business. She is receiving a high-value treat when she goes potty outside and she has trained her foster parents to follow her to the kitchen when she come in to get a treat. Lexie is getting a bit better on the leash, and this may be because she is taken out on a regular schedule and is also learning her way around the neighborhood. She loves having her harness put on her since this means she is going for a walk. She is not only a smart little girlie, but has quite the personality as well.

Lexie is slowly learning that not all noises are scary noises, and the growling she used to do when hearing noises is now minimum. She will still bark if someone comes to the door or she sees a worker in the back yard, but when gently corrected, she will immediately stop barking. She warms up to everyone immediately and has never attempted to snap or bite. She is a very sweet little girlie who prefers to have a set routine and schedule, and she seems unsure of any changes to her routine and schedule.

Her foster parents are teaching her basic commands like stay, sit, outside and shhh. She is eager to learn new things and delights when she is praised for being such a good girl. Lexie does have some separation anxiety when her chosen person leaves, so she definitely needs a home where there is at least one stay-at-home parent. We are hopeful that as she becomes more familiar with her daily routine and also that she isnít going to be left alone for long periods of time, this behavior will lessen.

NOTE: Lexie can only be adopted into an adult-only home - no children, please. Lexie needs to be the only animal in the home so she can receive all the attention that this Princess deserves.

UPDATED BIO 12/04/2019: Lexie has been in her foster home for almost a week now, but she is quickly adapting and settling in. She was sadly surrendered by her former owners as they felt their home was too active for her and they felt Lexie would be happier in a calmer, quieter home where she could be the center of attention. Lexie has not been socialized with other dogs/cats, so it would be best for her to be placed in a home where she is the one and only animal.

Lexie seems to get along very well with adults who quietly and patiently approach her. She seeks out any available lap and thoroughly enjoys all the petting she gets from her humans. Lexie does need some reinforcement on both her leash-training and house-training, but she is a young pup and very smart and she will soon get it.

Lexie does bark at unexpected noises and appears to be super sensitive to sounds, and it is known that some dogs do have a predisposition to noise anxiety. Her foster parents will be working on desensitizing her to these sounds with positive reinforcement. Since Lexie is super sensitive to sounds at this time and barks at unexpected/unknown noises, an apartment or condo living situation for her is not a good idea as neighbors are very close and may get annoyed. Sweet Lexie immediately stops barking when she is gently corrected.

It is felt that with this additional training, Lexie will make a wonderful, loving companion to an adult-only home where quietness and patience is exercised regularly. Lexie is very VERY playful and she particularly loves loves loves to play chase Ė sweet! She is a real cutie and will be an excellent fit for someone who will invest their time with her in a patient and loving manner.

NOTE: Lexie can only be adopted into an adult-only home - no children, please. Lexie needs to be the only animal in the home so she can receive all the attention that this Princess deserves.

INITIAL BIO 11/29/2019: Lexie just arrived in her UYR foster home today. Her owners sadly surrendered Lexie as they felt their home was too active for her and they felt Lexie would be happier in a calmer, quieter home where she could be the center of attention. She has settled in nicely in her foster home and appears to love Foster Mom and Foster Dad equally. There is much to learn about this sweet and lovable girlie, so please check back soon for updates.

NOTE: Lexie can only be adopted into an adult-only home - no children, please.

I am here waiting on you.

I am looking for my forever home. Maybe it is yours.
Florida
Lilly

Lilly is a beautiful yorkie sweetheart who is 10 years old and weighs 9.9 pounds. Lovely Lilly is being fostered in Spring Hill, FL.

THANK YOU TO LILLY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Teresa Beament

UPDATED BIO 12/12/2019: Sweet Lilly has only been in her foster home for two months. She has become so much a part of her foster family during this time. Lilly loves her foster parents, but is looking for her forever-and-ever home. Lilly has few requirements for her forever home - she has let her foster mom know that she is a perfect little leady and likes her girlie things Ė like dresses and warm clothes Ė so she would love to continue to be a well-dressed princess!

Lilly has dry eye syndrome (common in older dogs and older humans!) so her forever home must be willing to provide the eye drops she needs for the rest of her life. Lillyís vision is not affected by this condition. The estimated monthly costs of Lillyís medications are approximately $75 per month. Her adoptive parents must also provide her with the RX food she needs for life to keep her kidney issues under control.

Lilly happily sleeps all night long in her own bed, and her foster mom is very proud of her progress in such a short period of time. Her little back legs are bowed a bit, but this doesnít stop her from her normal activities. She walks and climb stairs with no issue. She is taking an over-the-counter glucosamine supplement to support the little bit of arthritis she has. She will always need the RX food and the glucosamine supplements for her knees to keep this princess happy and healthy.

Lilly is still a bit timid and slow on her walks, but prior to coming into UYR, she was not leash-trained so her adoptive parents will need to encourage her to go on walks which is wonderful exercise and will keep her joints happy.

Lilly wears a little bell on her collar so that foster mom is aware of her location. She always wants to be near her person, especially in the kitchen, and it helps foster mom to know where she is. Lilly loves all people and other dogs. She also loves to go on car rides and is a perfect little traveler. She sits up high in her little doggie car seat so that she can see out of all the windows - sweet.

Lillyís foster mom says that she is a very good little girl who loves to lie at her humanís feet or will happily sit on their lap Ė a perfect little companion. She will snuggle with you, greet you at the door and follow you into the bathroom lol!

She is only 10 years old and has many more years of life and love to give to her adoptive parents.

UPDATED BIO 10/25/2019: Sweet Lilly has only been in her foster home for a couple of weeks now, and she has been a busy little girlie at the vetís office. Lillyís former owner who had her since she was a little puppy went into an assisted living facility, and the family felt that Lilly would be better off with UYR so that we could find her the perfect second home.

Lilly has visited the vet several times in the past few weeks, and it has been discovered that she has Grade IV/IV luxating patellas. She is now on a daily tablet which will help with this condition. During her evaluation for surgery, her labs showed that she may have the beginning of kidney disease. This means that Lilly will need to be on medications to aid and support her kidneys and an RX food for kidney health the rest of her life. The vet feels that with this support, she is very adoptable and we already know she is very, very sweet and loving. Lilly returns to the vet in two weeks to have updated labs to ensure that the medications are working correctly.

She does have Keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS), more commonly referred to as dry eye. KCS results most often from an inadequate quantity of tears or a deficient quality of tears. She will need to be on a daily routine of eye drops also for this condition and this will also be for the rest of her life. She is temporarily on medications for skin allergies, and it is hoped that she can be weaned off of this medication since she is getting a healthy premium diet and her skin is looking and feeling much better.

Lillyís current medications and eye drops are costing approximately $50 per month, including the supplements to help her knees feel better. This precious girlie is so worth every penny of this and will reward her owner(s) with dedication, sweetness and loyalty. Oh, and lotsa love!

Now for the oh-so-wonderful things about LillyÖÖshe is learning to walk on a leash, although she is not accustomed to loud noises and can startle easily. As she gets used to being outdoors and going on long walks, this reaction should lessen. Due to her previous owner being unable to take Lilly out regularly, her house-training has suffered, but her foster mom is reinforcing that she needs to do her business outside and she is a smart little cookie and will eventually get it. Lilly loves all people and other dogs. She also loves to go on car rides and is a perfect little traveler. She sits up high in her little doggie car seat so that she can see out of all the windows, sweet.

Lillyís foster mom says that she is a very good little girl who loves to lie at her humanís feet or will happily sit on their lap. She is only 10 years old and has many more years of life and love to give to her adoptive parents.

NOTE: Lilly can be placed in a home with children over the age of 12 years old.

Initial bio 10-10-19 Lilly arrived at her foster home today. This sweet girl had been with her mom since she was a puppy. Sadly her mom got sick and had to go into an assisted living facility. Her family lived too far away to take Lilly so she went to stay at her vet clinic for a week. While Lilly was at the vet clinic her former mom's family reached out to United Yorkie Rescue and explained the situation and asked if we would take her. Of course we would! Today Lilly became a United Yorkie Rescue girl.

Her foster mom said Lilly was perfect in the car. She walks nicely on a leash and was fine with her fur brother. Lilly has some allergies that she is on meds for and a limited ingredient dog food. She also has dry eye that is easily treated with eye drops. She seems to be a very well behaved little lady.

Lilly would make a perfect companion for a senior citizen who wants a sweet girl to be their special baby.

Please come back soon for more information on Lilly as she settles into her foster home. Maybe Lilly will be the pup you have always been looking for, she sure is looking for you.


To date we've spent $746.28 on Lilly's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $10.00 in donations.

I just got to my foster home. I think I may like it here.

Mishu

Mishu is a 2-year-old, 10 pound Yorkie Boy. He is being fostered in Clearwater, FL.

UPDATED BIO 12/09/2019: Mishu has been in his foster home just a few days, but has adapted really well. His former owners felt that he needed a much quieter home so that he could continue to learn proper puppy manners.

Hereís what Mishu had to say recently:

Hello! I am Mishu (it means Little Bear). I am a very high-energy active two-year old boy who is very happy and puppy-like. I am partially house-trained and getting better every day. My foster parents have introduced me to the outdoors and I love it, so I really need a home with a large fenced-in backyard so I can run to my heartís content. My foster dad said that I can jump really high and I have fun doing it. But he said I wasnít allowed to jump up on the kitchen table or the bathroom vanity Ė bummer. I would not do well in a condo or apartment Ė I need the freedom of larger spaces. I pretty much love everyone I meet and I love to cuddle.

I am a little picky about who I choose as my doggie friends Ė I do get along with some dogs and not with others. I may like to have a doggie companion in my forever home who is close to my size and age Ďcause I love playing with the young resident yorkie in my foster home. I ride well in the car and walk well on a leash and am very healthy and current on my vaccinations. My Christmas wish is a forever family who will love me always.

INITIAL BIO 12/5/19: Mishu just arrived at his foster home today. There is so much to see there. He has a foster brother and sister as well as his foster mommy and daddy. Mishu is already playing with his foster sister. He is making himself right at home. Mishu is especially going to love his big fenced backyard.

Mishu became a United Yorkie Rescue dog because his former mom knew he needed a much quieter home to learn his doggie manners. He was learning, but his former mom was concerned since she knew she didn't have the time to really work with this little guy. His foster parents are going to work with Mishu on the doggie manners..

His house training is improving and he is good about sleeping in his crate or doggie bed. He walks nicely on a leash, but sometimes he barks loudly at people who walk by. His foster parents will work with him on that, too. Mishu is still a very young dog and he will learn how to be the perfect little doggie boy.

There will be so much more coming on Mishu as he settles into his foster home and his foster parents get to know him, his personality, and what he needs in a forever home. Come back soon.


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

Parker

MEET PARKER. Parker is an adorable little yorkie who is 3 years old and weighs a little chubby 10.4 lbs. Parker is being fostered in Kissimmee, FL.

INITIAL BIO 12/06/2019: Parker is an adorable little yorkie boy who didnít have such a great start in life. He was paralyzed in his pelvic limbs (rear legs) at birth and was unable to walk Ė his front limbs are normal. Parker has improved with his mobility and is able to ambulate reasonably well although he is uncoordinated and will fall over if he gets too excited.

Parker has been with a wonderful owner since he was 8 weeks old who has diligently worked with him and cared for him, but her life situation has recently changed and she is no longer able to care for him. He must wear a bellyband at all times since he will dribble urine from time to time, but will also do his business outside when taken out.

It is hoped that UYR will be able to get Parker a doggie cart/wheelchair which will improve his mobility tremendously. This is a big expense, so if you have been moved by Parkerís story, please consider making a donation to UYR so that we can help this little man become even more mobile.


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

Princess

MEET PRINCESS. Princess is in adorable little 9 year old yorkie who weighs 7.6 lbs. She needs a lot of care and vetting. Princess is being fostered in Miami, FL.

THANK YOU TO PRINCESS' RESCUE ANGELS!

UPDATED BIO 12/08/2019: HEAR YE! HEAR YE! Great News! Princess has been released from the vetís offices and is recuperating nicely from her emergency surgery for pyometra. She still has a few medical issues to figure out, but she is happy and alert. She has settled into her Foster Momís home and is eating and drinking well. And she has no problem gobbling up her food lol! Foster Mom says that she appears to be house-trained which is a BONUS Ė smart girlie!

Princess appears to get along well with the kitty cat in the home and loves all the people she has met so far. We donít know her history with other dogs, so there is more to find out about this little sweetie. Princess has let everyone know that she loves being around kind and loving humans, so a home with perhaps one stay-at-home parent would be perfect for her. She still has some healing to do before she is ready for adoption, so stay tuned!

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Princessí small size, she can only be adopted into an adult-only home.

UPDATED BIO 12/05/2019: Princess has only been in her foster home for one day when things changed quickly and dramatically. She saw the vet the day after she arrived and it was discovered that she had a raging infection. After taking several abdominal radiographs, it was discovered that Princess has pyometra. Pyometra is a very dangerous infection of her uterus which a life-threatening situation which required immediate emergency surgery. Pyometra can happen to female dogs and cats who have not been spayed. This is a veterinary emergency that carries a risk of sepsis and potential death.

Princess had her surgery the very next day and is in Day #2 of her recovery. She is doing well and has shown that she had a will to live Ė and love Ė and is recuperating nicely. She will not come home for a few more days, and her foster mom canít wait to have her back home. Life is finally getting better and better for this little princess. She is active and continues to eat and drink well. She has shown that she has true grit and the will to live in spite of her recent sad circumstances.

Princessí emergency surgery is expected to be between $2,000 - $2,500. If you have been moved by Princessí story and her current medical crisis, please consider making a donation to help cover the costs of her surgery. You can click on the ďPlease DonateĒ button below Ė thank you! If you are unable to donate, please share Princessí story far and wide, and prayers are always appreciated. Your donation will also allow United Yorkie Rescue to continue to pull little ones like Princess who are oh-so-deserving of another chance at a forever family and love.

INITIAL BIO 12/01/2019: Princess arrived today into United Yorkie Rescue's Foster Care Program. She was once someone's precious little yorkie girlie who was hopefully loved and cared for - until she became older. The family who once owned her gave her away the day before Thanksgiving because they no longer wanted to care for this sweet little girl. The kind person who they gave her to knew that Princess needed some immediate medical attention, grooming and care, so she contacted United Yorkie Rescue and, of course, we said we would take her.

Princess is such a precious little soul who loves to go for walks and readily gives kisses - her tail wags a lot - sweet!. She will likely need to be shaved down due to her extremely matted coat - she once had a topknot and probably a pretty little bow, but it was left in her hair way too long and now all she has is a knotted mess on top of her head. Her teeth appear to be really bad and she may likely lose a lot of them. Her nails are very overgrown and she appears to have been severely neglected for a very long time. But through all that, she has such a sweet and gentle personality. But everything for Princess changed today. She will be groomed and see the vet very soon so that we can determine what this little Princess needs. Please stay tuned to learn more about Princess.

If Princess' story has pulled at your heartstrings, please consider making a donation to UYR to cover her medical expenses. This will also allow United Yorkie Rescue to continue to pull little ones like Princess who are so-deserving of another chance at a forever family and love.


To date we've spent $2346.29 on Princess's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $732.49 in donations.

Rosie

Rosie is a sweet senior Yorkie. She is about 10 years old and weighs 5.4 pounds. Rosie is being fostered in St. Augustine, FL

THANK YOU TO ROSIE'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Patricia Riddle, John Chambers

UPDATED BIO 10/30/2019: Rosie is a beautiful little yorkie who was sadly surrendered by her owner who could no longer provide for her care. Rosie came into UYR on 07/20/2019. She was a very scared little girl initially with all the changes in her life happening so suddenly. Fast Forward 3 months - Rosie has come a long way since being in the loving home of her foster parents. There are four resident yorkies in the home, and they all took her under their paws to make her feel welcome and loved.

Rosie is a very happy little girlie and loves going outside with the pack and exploring. She also loves going for long walks and sheís a very good little traveler in the car. The only thing that Rosie seems to not like so much is being picked up and held; however, she will come into the room with her foster parents and sit or lie down close to them, so she really enjoys being with her people, just not being picked up.

Rosie came into UYR with a grand taste for human food, which may have been what she had been eating all her life in her former home. Yikes! She now eats a doggie diet of a premium hard food along with some wet food. However, if she hears a bag opening that she may perceive as a yummy human snack, she will come running to get some lol! That doesnít work anymore, but she still is hoping that it will haha! When foster mom is in the kitchen, Rosie magically appears and looks at her as if she is going to get some sort of human treat Ė NOT.

Rosie gets along with the two cats in the home as well as the four litttle yorkies Ė sheís easy-going that way. She seems to like people because she always wants to check out whoever comes over to visit. She is a very sweet little girl who would be a wonderful companion.

ē Now for some not-so-happy news ÖÖ it has been determined through several rounds of labs and other testing that little Rosie is in kidney failure. This breaks our hearts to hear, but UYR is determined that this little girl will have the best life possible. She is currently on thyroid meds (cost = $10/monthly) and recently started on Azodyl which is a nutritional supplement that focuses on the reduction of toxin buildup in the blood and supports continued healthy kidney function (cost = $76 for 45-day supply).

Please donít turn away from Rosie because of this diagnosis as she so deserves to have all the love and compassion as a healthier dog. Without a crystal ball, it is impossible to know how long Rosie can be managed on this medication, but it is our hope and prayer that someone will consider adopting this little princess and give her the best life possible for the time she has left, which could potentially be several years. Could that someone be you?

UPDATED BIO 10/03/2019: Rosie is a beautiful little senior yorkie who was sadly surrendered by her owner who could no longer provide for her care. She has been in her foster home for 2 months now and is making progress and becoming much more social than when she first arrived. She is more interested in the comings and goings of the family, and if friends/neighbors arrive, she is always curious about them and will approach them to check them out.

Rosie still wonít come when called, but that may just be her personality Ė she may feel like a princess who expects her humans to come to her lol! Her foster parents were recently on a long trip and when they returned home, Rosie was as excited to see them as the resident dogs were and greeted them enthusiastically, which is a big step for her. She can now be picked up by her foster parents as long as they hold her tightly against their bodies Ė itís very possible that Rosie may have been accidentally dropped early on in her life and that may account for her fear of being picked up. Even when she is gently placed back on the floor, she panics for a few seconds. She is good with the dogs and cats in the home, but doesnít interact with them.

Rosie continues to be happiest when she is taken outside Ė she will go from one side of the yard to the other side, smelling and exploring all the while. She is now enjoying running around the yard and experiencing the feeling of freedom when she does this Ė itís easy to tell how happy she is when she is frolicking around the yard. It would be great for Rosie to be adopted into a furever home with a fenced yard, but that is not a deal breaker as long as she can go for several long walks every day and be allowed to explore as she walks.

Rosie has age-related bilateral cataracts but she has no problem getting around and investigating all the wonders of the outdoors. Her early labs showed some low values for her thyroid and pancreas, and she has been on meds for both since she arrived in UYR; she has a follow-up appointment on 10/24 to determine if she will need these meds for the rest of her life. If thatís the case, the monthly cost for the meds is only $10.

Are you looking for a sweet little companion who loves to take long walks in the outdoors? Please donít turn away from Rosie because of her age Ė she deserves a wonderful furever home like all other companion animals. You will not be disappointed and she will love you forever.

UPDATED BIO 08/17/2019: Rosie is a beautiful little senior yorkie who was sadly surrendered by her owner who could no longer provide for her care. She has been in her loving foster home for almost a month now. Rosie has come a long way since she first arrived and seems to get along with all the doggies & kitties in the home. She will even approach them in a curious way to say Ďhelloí, and even the kitties seem to like her. They show their acceptance by rubbing over her body and Rosie seems to enjoy the interaction.

Rosie is coming out of her shell every day Ė sheís had a lot of changes in her life and sometimes accepting those changes is slow. She prefers being on the floor, but close to her people. She also enjoys getting attention from her foster parents but is not yet comfortable enough to sit on their laps. This may change as time goes by. Rosieís favorite thing to do is to explore outside Ė she loves being outside and will go from one side of the yard to the other side, smelling and exploring all the while. It would be great for her to be adopted into a furever home with a fenced yard, but that is not a deal breaker as long as she can go for long walks and explore as she walks.

Rosie has seen the vet and she does have age-related bilateral cataracts but appears to see well enough to get around. She may also have age-related arthritis and has been started on glucosamine supplements which should definitely help. Her labs showed some low values for her thyroid and pancreas, and she is on meds for both for 2 months to see if there is improvement. We donít know at this time how her body will react to the meds nor if she will need meds for the rest of her life. Once that is determined, Rosie will be scheduled for a dental and be ready to be adopted in 6-8 weeks.

Please stay tuned to learn more about this sweet little girlie. Rosieís vetting has been a bit expensive and thereís more vetting to be done in the future. If you have been touched by this sweet girlieís story, please consider a donation to UYR, which can easily be done by clicking on the PayPal link below.

Initial Bio 7/20/19 Rosie is a beautiful senior Yorkie. Her former mom's medical issues made it very hard for her to care for Rosie any longer. She reached out to United Yorkie Rescue to help her. Sadly, and with tears, she knew Rosie had to be a UYR girl to get the care she could no longer provide for her.

Rosie has cataracts but she has vision and gets around very good. She will need all her vaccinations updated, as well as a heartworm test and blood work. She loves being outdoors walking around and smelling everything in her new environment.

Rosie has only been in her foster home a few days and has been checking everything out. She may be a senior, but she is as curious about her new surroundings and home as a young pup. After Rosie's vet visit her foster parents will know if she has any medical issues that need to be taken care of, as well as what she needs in her forever home. Please come back soon as Rosie will be seeing the vet on Monday 07/29 and we will know more about her health at that time.


To date we've spent $1383.09 on Rosie's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $65.00 in donations.

Sandi

Sandi is a beautiful Yorkie mix who is estimated to be 7-1/2 years old and weighs 12 pounds. Sandi is being fostered in Vero Beach, FL.

THANK YOU TO SANDI'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Nestor Sanchez, John Sauser, Sandy Pagnotta, Dawn Gowen

UPDATED BIO 11/28/2019: Sandi has now been in her UYR foster home for 4 weeks. Before coming into rescue, this sweet girlie was passed around in 3 temporary homes after being found as a stray, and poor Sandi was confused Ė what was she doing wrong that nobody wanted her? The answer is Ė absolutely nothing!

Sandi has had her very complex surgery to remove a grapefruit-sized hernia (see unusual details of this surgery below), and she is recuperating nicely. She is back to taking long walks with her foster mom, and this is something she really does enjoy.

Due to her moving from home-to-home, it appears that she wasnít properly socialized with other animals, and naturally has a mild distrust of people and their intentions. Sandi does not do well currently in situations where there are strangers, even in the home, and perhaps this will get better as she realizes that no one will raise their voice to her or worse yet Ė abandon her. She is being given gentle correction and guidance and is slowly learning what is expected of her, and this is beginning to lessen her fear and allow her confidence to take over. House-training is on-going, but she will use the pee-pee pads in the house; she hasnít quite gotten the knack of letting her foster mom know when she needs to go out, but she is a smart little girl who is so willing to learn through kind and gentle guidance.

Sandiís perfect home would be one that is very low-key and calm and quiet prevail, and where there is at least one stay-at-home parent to take her out often and to reassure her that her life will get better and better as time passes. Sandi gets along with the other dogs in the home; however, foster mom feels she would be happiest if she were the only dog in the home. She likes to cuddle with her person, but is just as happy lying next to them.

Sandi could sure use some support in the form of prayers, shares and donations so that we can continue to help provide for her needs. If Sandiís story has pulled at your heartstrings, please consider making a donation to UYR to help with her vetting expenses. Your donation will also enable us to continue to rescue other little oh-so-deserving dogs like Sandi.

PLEASE NOTE: Sandi can only be placed in a home with adults. No Children Please!

UPDATED BIO 11/19/2019: Sandi has now been in her UYR foster home for two weeks. She came to us after being found as a stray, then landing in 3 temporary homes that were not good fits for her through absolutely no fault of her own.

While we donít know many details about Sandiís life prior to rescue, we can say that she came to us needing extensive medical care. She had an absolutely ENORMOUS abdominal hernia, was unaltered and had many teeth which were badly decayed. Sandiís hernia was so bad it looked like she had a grapefruit hanging from her lower groin area. Until her surgery yesterday, we werenít completely sure it wasnít a tumor because the contents felt more solid than most hernias. Sandiís case proved truly unique. When her abdominal cavity was opened, her anatomy was so distorted that her surgery took hours to perform. After much exploring and disentangling its was discovered that Sandiís uterus was actually entrapped in her very large hernia. Sandiís vet stated this was the first time he had ever seen anything quite like it. Her repair was complex to say the least. Sandi also had 10 teeth extracted so this little girl is now recovering from a very

B-I-G surgery.

Sandi is a sweet, beautiful girl with soulful eyes that will melt your heart. Her eyes seem to convey a feeling of sadness, but we are 100% committed to giving this precious girl the fairy tale ending she so richly deserves! Sandi is being attended to by her doting foster mom who is administering her pain meds and monitoring her closely.

Sandi could sure use some support in the form of prayers, shares and donations so that we can continue to help provide for her needs. If Sandiís story has pulled at your heartstrings, please consider making a donation to UYR to go towards her vetting expenses.

UPDATED BIO 11/03/2019: Hi All Ė Sandi here! My history before June of this year is not know. Hereís what I do know - a very nice lady took me in as a stray and I was matted and covered with fleas Ė yuk! She cleaned me up and gave me a great home until it became apparent that I wanted to be an only dog. I was then given to another couple who didn't know what to do with me except keep me in a crate all day Ė that was no fun and made me very anxious. Then onto Home #3Ö the nice lady who took me in discovered that I needed to be an only dog, and now Iím in Home #4 Ė the best one yet! I have a sweet foster mom who told me that I will stay here while I am getting healthy, and that my next home will be my furever home and that I will never ever have to move again. That will be so nice.

I've only been in foster care for a few days now, but my foster mom says I'm making progress Ė I think thatís a good thing. I am a smart little cookie Ė I am completely house- trained Ė BONUS! I do have some anxiety and possessiveness with "my human", but I'm feeling more comfortable now. Foster mom says that because I do not like to share my human with other dogs, that I really need to be the only dog in my furever home. I love to go on long walks several times a day and foster mom thinks this helps my anxiety. I think my perfect home would be one where there is at least one stay-at-home parent, and that they like to go on l-o-n-g walks. I am not sure about children, but maybe if the kids are over 12 years old and calm and well-behaved, I may like that.

I have seen a really nice vet who said it will be a few weeks before I'm ready for surgery. I have a hernia or possible growth that needs to be repaired or removed, and the vet said it's not likely that I've been spayed so that will be done as well. Foster mom says I have stinky breath and I will have a dental, too Ö.. ALL AT THE SAME TIME! But Iíll come out of surgery all fixed up and having a sweet-smelling mouth. I will be looking for a forever home sometime in December, but if you think I will be perfect for your home, please complete and submit an adoption application for me Ė I think I will be a very popular little girlie. And Iíll have a spa day soon and Iím sure I will be even more beautiful than I am now.

PLEASE NOTE: If you have been moved by Sandiís story and would like to help her learn to trust people again, please consider donating whatever you can towards her upcoming surgeries. We need to let this little princess know that she is worth it and that people do care about her and her needs and happiness.

Initial Bio 10/31/19 Meet Sandi our pupsicle treat for Halloween. Sandi has had it rough the last few months. She went from her home, to the streets, to another home, then to another home, and now to her foster home. In the course of less than 6 months she has been in 4 different homes. It is no wonder Sandi is showing some signs of anxiety, since she has no idea where she may end up tomorrow. United Yorkie Rescue will make sure Sandi is given love and care and kindness, while she learns she is not going anywhere until she is ready for her final and forever home.

We know that one of the reasons Sandi went from home to home is that she does not like other dogs. It seems when she loves her person, she wants to be the only pup in their life. Her foster mom knows that, and the one thing she will for sure do for Sandi is to find her a forever home where she will be the only pup in the home.

Sandi has already seen the vet. She got all her vaccinations and heartworm test. She still needs a dental. She has either a hernia or a mass that needs to be removed, at that time she will get her spay if she still needs it. So, she has that pretty big surgery coming up for her. The surgery won't be for a few weeks, until she has settled down and adjusted more to her foster home. If you would like to help Sandi learn to trust people, please consider donating whatever you can towards her surgery. Let her know she is worth it and people do care.

Soon Sandi will have her spa day with a nice bath and a grooming. Check back soon as Sandi settles into her foster home and her foster parents get to know her better. New pictures coming too.

Francie (Rhue)

Meet Francie a 8 year old, 8 pound Yorkie. She is 1/2 of a bonded pair being fostered in Suwanee,GA

Updated Bio 11/16/19

Francie and Rhue are looking for a new home. Their mom passed away and there was no one available to keep them together so they came into United Yorkie Rescue in hopes someone will fall in love with this pair and give them a new home. Francie just had her first dental ever in all of her 8 years and she lost 11 teeth. You'd think this might slow her down but she's still hungry and really enjoying her soft food for the next few days while she heals. She wants attention but not so sure she wants to be in a lap yet. She does like to get under your feet while you are sitting and use them to scratch her back. Francie enjoys exploring the backyard with her sister Rheu and will come when called. She must be walked with a harness and not with a lead attached to her collar because it makes her choke. She is a good car rider, is indifferent to kids and cats and appears to be almost completely house trained. Francie prefers to sleep in a corner of your bed but she is also crate trained. She's going to need a good patient home where they are willing to give her the time to feel safe and settle in. Any questions please email foster mom at jennifer@unitedyorkierescue.org

Updated Bio 11/16/19

Rheu is a 10 year old 30 pound Cockapoo. She is bonded with Francie and is being fostered in Suwanee, Georgia.

Rheu and Francie are looking for a new home. Their mom passed away and there was no one available to keep them together so they came into United Yorkie Rescue in hopes someone will fall in love with this pair and give them a new home. Rheu is the youngest 10 year old you're likely to meet. She likes to run and explore though she is not quite sure exactly how to play she knows she wants to. Rheu wants to be where you are. She is a shadow but has an independent side too. She is a pleasant companion and loves belly scratches especially when you get down to her level and get serious about giving her the massage and scratches that she enjoys so much. Rheu is supposed to be a cockapoo but really looks like she's more Cocker than Poodle. She doesn't shed much, is almost completely house trained, comes when called but needs to be taught some leash manners. Rheu loves cats and kids! Rheu likes to sleep with her owner but is crate trained. There's still some harmless puppy mischief in this wonderful old dog.

Marley

Marley and Nicki
Illinois
Marley IL

Ten year old Marley, a boy, and 11 year old Nikki, a girl, spent their lives together as breeder dogs. Fortunately they were recently released as their owner passed away, allowing them a chance at a better forever life. Both are being fostered near Chicago, IL.

THANK YOU TO MARLEY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Sunghee Sohn, Irene and Peter Havas in memory of darling Happy

UPDATE BIO: 12/04/19. Hi everyone, we are getting ready for Christmas and hope to find our forever home for that special day. We have been Christmas shopping. We love to go out wherever our foster mom goes. We had a trip over Thanksgiving and that was LOTS of fun. Mom told us we had to be on out best behavior. We did not even have any accidents in the house. We are still working on that, but we usually can wait until mom takes us out. We had a lot of company, and everyone told us how cute and well behaved we are. Our foster mom was SO proud of us. No one that visited could believe we were 10 years old. She said that someone might want to adopt us at Christmas, for a perfect present for a yorkie lover..

Marley LOVES to run and play outside, and they both love chewies. They do not have many teeth, but that does not stop them. They are eating and sleeping well. Nikki does not leave my side. They do not appear to be as old as indicated on the adoption papers. They are both full of like and anxious to learn new things. They love life! Although they are a pair, it does not seem like more than 1 dog because they hang out together all of the time. Their personalities compliment each other, and they would be a wonderful pair.

UPDATE BIO: 11/01/19. My foster mom says that my sister are I are ready to go to our forever homes. She says it will be even nicer than here, but I can hardly imagine that. I get along well with my foster brothers. Although I do not really like playing with toys, I love chewing on jerky sticks, even though I do not have many teeth! My foster mom also makes REALLY GOOD food, so I gobble it up. She says that I need just a little more meat on my bones.

I have a lot of energy, so we go for several long walks each day. I am more relaxed and get into less trouble when I have been out on a walk.It is getting cold, so I do not enjoy them as much as I did before. My sister is the "princess" and I am the "clown." My foster mom and her friends are always laughing at my antics.

If you are looking for some good laughs, give my foster mom a call!

Update 10/13/19: I really like living at my foster mom's house. She says that I am going to get to go to another house where I will stay forever. She says it will even be better than here, but I can't believe that. I love it here! I have a lot of energy, so mom and I go out for several long walks each day. I was a country dog, but now I am a city dog and I LOVE, I mean LOVE all of the smells. I have to keep walking or mom gives me a little tug. She does let me stop for a sniff here and there. Next week I have to go for some surgery. Mom is hoping that it will help me stop marking in the house. She does not like it, but I just can't help it. I want everyone to know I have been here! I don't like to stay in the pen when my mom goes to work, but she thinks I will get into trouble if she leaves me out. One day I got to stay in the pen with my foster brothers, and that was really fun. I only get to do that if my sister is not around. Mom says that 4 dogs in 1 pen is too much, so I stay in one with my sister Nikki. We are the best of friends, and are looking for a home that can take both of us. We have been together my whole like, and I think I would miss her if we did not go together. Keep tuned, and I will let you know about my surgery in a week or so.

Initial Bio 10/5/19: Since this adorable pair has been together all of their lives, they rely on each other for company and must be adopted together. Their initial vet visit indicates their overall health is very good, however they will need some additional vetting to have dentals, spays, and neuters completed before they become adoption ready. Both are responding well in their foster home and coming out of the shell.

Marley is very high energy and requires several walks a day, while Nikki is happy sitting on the couch and relaxing. Marley and Nikki will require a home without any children. They are both very lovable and like to be near their humans. A perfect home would involve a work from home or retired couple. Both are currently working on potty training. Marley and Nikkiís future owner will need to continue patience with potty training. Preference is their new home has a secure fence as these two will be adapting to a new life in a loving home.

Marley had a trip to the vet, and was very cooperative. He will need to be neutered as well as have his teeth cleaned. Currently he has some trouble chewing, but that does not deter him from enjoying his meals! He is wearing a belly band at all times, as he will mark everything in the house. However, when we go out on walks, he is a very good walker, and does not stop to mark. We are hoping that this will decrease once he is neutered. He gets along well with his foster brothers.


To date we've spent $837.87 on Marley IL's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $120.00 in donations.

Valerie Chavis

UPDATE BIO: 12/04/19. Hi everyone, We are getting ready for Christmas, and hope to find out forever home for that special day. We have been Christmas shopping. we love to go out where ever our foster mom goes. We had a trip over Thanksgiving and that was VERY fun. Mom told us we had to be on out best behavior. We did not even have any accidents in the house. We are still working on that, but we usually can wait until mom takes us out. We had a lot of company, and everyone told us how cute and well behaved we are. Out foster mom was SO proud of us. No one that visited could believe we were 10 years old. She said that someone might want to adopt us at Christmas, for a perfect present for a yorkie lover..

Marley LOVES to run and play outside, and they both love chewies. They do not have many teeth, but that does not stop them. They are eating and sleeping well. Nikki does not leave my side. They do not appear to be as old as indicated on the adoption papers. They are both full of like and anxious to learn new things. They love life! Although they are a pair, it does not seem like more than 1 dog because they hang out together all of the time. Their personalities compliment each other, and they would be a wonderful pair.

10/13/19: I have been at my foster mom's home for a couple of weeks now, and I am really starting to feel comfortable. I have been to the vet, and had some surgeries so I never have to have any more babies. :-) What a relief!! It seemed like I was a puppy-making machine. I also had some ugly lesions on my back, so I had those removed also. I am getting all spiffed up for my forever home. I have gotten so brave this week. I left my safe place on the couch, and ventured out into the kitchen where my foster mom works. At first it was a little scary, but then I went over to her, and she picked me up. I noticed that my foster brothers also like to hang out in the kitchen with my mom. My brother Marley likes to sit on the kitchen chair, but I would rather sit on my mom's lap. I am looking for a forever home that has a nice couch, and a lap for me to sit in.

10/5/19: Since this adorable pair has been together all of their lives, they rely on each other for company and must be adopted together. Their initial vet visit indicates their overall health is very good, however they will need some additional vetting to have dentals, spays, and neuters completed before they become adoption ready.

Marley and Nikkiís future owner will need to continue patience with potty training. Preference is their new home has a secure fence as these two will be adapting to a new life in a loving home.

Nikki is a very sweet girl. Her favorite place if the couch. She sits on it Initially she was fearful of humans, and would become stiff and tremulous, but now she will come up and want to be held. She will eat well if I feed her on the couch. That is her "Safe place". Nikki will be going for some surgery this month. She has a number of lesions (about 6-7) that need to be removed. The vet does not think they are cancerous, but states they are a risk for rupturing. She wants to be in tip top shape when she goes to her forever home! She also has a number of loose teeth, so they will need to pull those when she has her dental. She will also be spayed if she is doing well under anesthesia.


To date we've spent $1396.42 on Nicki IL's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $50.00 in donations.

Updated Bio 11/30/2019:

Molly has now been with her foster parents for three weeks now and is doing very well. She is super sweet! Molly is also very smart she is the only dog in the foster home that lets foster mommy and daddy know she needs to go potty. She knows that when foster mommy says she is going to work, she goes into her crate and doesnít seem to mind. The groomer mentioned that she was so easy to groom.

Molly would love to be the princess in the home. She seems to get along with other dogs, but would prefer to be the only dog. She loves tummy rubs and walks. Again, she is a super, super sweet girl. She loves cuddles, snuggles, and sleeping with people. She is not a finicky eater and has adjusted well to the routine of the household. If you are interested in molly please fill out an application for her or email foster mom with questions.

Bunky

Bunky is a estimated 8 year old Yorkie boy who weighs 9 pounds and is being fostered near Clarksville, TN.

THANK YOU TO BUNKY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Irene and Peter Havas in memory of darling Happy

12/02/2019

Update on Bunky... He came home on Sunday from Blue Pearl on medication to hopefully prevent his seizures. At this time he has been seizure free for 48 hrs. We are so excited he seems to be feeling better too. Today Bunky went to the dogtor to get all of his yearly vaccines. He was such a good boy. They also removed his stitches that were still in place from when he lost his eye. We have no idea how long those stitches were there but they are gone now thank goodness. He also has a double ear infection and has been given medication to get this cleared up as well. He is doing so good. He does seem to be housetrained, he will go to the door and circle when he wants to go outside. He loves to be held all the time. We are currently working on teaching him that human food or trash are not what he is supposed to eat. Living on the streets of course he ate whatever was available so it will take him some time to understand that he will get regular meals. He will need to have a recheck of his ears in a month to make sure they have cleared up. Foster mom feels that Bunky would do best in a home with no small children and someone who works from home or has lots of time to spend with him. He doesn't like to be left alone. He rides great in the car. If you think you would be a good fit for Bunky please complete an application.

11/30/19

Bunky just arrived while in route to his foster home Bunky suffered 2 seizures. So he is currently at Blue Pearl for evaluation. Bunky is an owner surrender. He has lived a rough life he is missing an eye and we do not know how this occurred. He has also had little to no vet care. He was living on the streets with a homeless person for years. Bunky would wander the streets and the homeless man would lose him and beg people to help find Bunky. Recently a local family reached out to try and assist the homeless man and his dog. After helping the homeless man he decided to ask the family to take his dog so that he would be safe. This family reached out to UYR for assistances. We donít know much about Bunky at this point except that he needs our help. If you can please donate to his care so that we can get him stabilized. Stay tuned for updates


To date we've spent $1093.10 on Bunky's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $20.00 in donations.

Little Man

Little Man is a 8 year old Yorkie boy who weighs 5 pounds and is being fostered near Ashland City,TN.

Initial Bio 10/31/19: Little Man was surrendered by his family who was gone to much and felt like he deserved a family who could be home with him more and give him the attention he deserves. He has just seen the Doctor and is a healthy doggie. He is scheduled to be neutered and have a dental in a week. Little Man is a very sweet boy and loves to give lots of kisses. He rides well in a car and gets along great with other dogs and everyone he meets. He loves to sleep with Foster Mom and his Foster doggie siblings. He will use the wee wee pads and go out to potty with the other dogs, however, he does mark. Things should improve in that area after his neuter. Little Man would be a great family dog. He needs a family that is home most of the time so he doesnít have to be by himself all day long. If you think he is a match for you please fill out an application or email Foster Mom to learn more about this sweet little guy.

Marley Belle is doing great her dental surgery went well... and she has found her forever home. Once she is all healed from dental surgery she will be going to her new home just in time for Christmas.

11/12/19

Marley Belle is doing great after her liver shunt surgery! She recently went to the Dogtor for her post op appointment the Dogtor was so happy with her progress. She has started to reduce the medications she is taking and soon she will be off the liver shunt medication. The Dogtor did say that she would recommend leaving her on the liver diet food. She can now start to run and play. Marley is super excited about this change she loves to be able to be active and explore chew on things and most of all she loves that FM mom is now letting her sleep in the bed. Once she is weened off all the liver shunt medications she will go back to the Dogtor to get the rest of her puppy shots as this had to be put on hold due to the seriousness of her previous condition. She will also have her teeth evaluated she actually has two rows of teeth which may require a dental and extractions. Please continue to pray for Marley Belle that she continue to improve everyday... We are hoping Marley Belle will be ready for a new home by Christmas.... If you think you might be interested in giving Marley Belle a forever home please submit an application. As always any donations are greatly appreciated.

Update

9/15/19

Marley Belle needs your help!!! She is having ups and downs right now still trying to regulate her BP and glucoses levels. She was up and moving around some in her cage yesterday even was able to eat on her own, however later on the day she aspirated and developed pneumonia. She is a fighter and she wants to live. She is a baby and has yet to be able to run and play. She has been sick for the majority of her short life. She is in critical care now. She also has developed pneumonia along with the symptoms from her liver shunt. They are treating her aggressively and she may need to go on oxygen. The Dogtors are not giving up on her and neither are we but we could use YOUR help. Her care is very costly and any donations you could make toward her care small or large would be a great help. She deserves a chance to live... Letís all work together to give her that chance.

Update

9/14/19

Marley Belle had to be rushed to Blue Pearl last night for emergency care. She became very lathargic and was not responsive. As of today she is still not completely stable they are having difficulty keeping her glucose and BP regulated. She is recieving glucose and lactolouse thru enema they do not want to put anything in her stomach at this time. Hoping to get the glucose and BP regulated. She will be staying again tonight to be monitored and adjust her medications as needed. The Dogtor's plan is to first get her stabalized. If we are able to get her stablized the next steps would be to start medications oral and then evalute her to have the liver shunt surgery. She will however have to be on the medications for 3-4 weeks before she could even have surgery if she is a canadiate. This little girl hasn't even gotten her chance in life yet she needs your prayers and any donations you feel able to give. Hospitalization and surgery are very costly.

Initial bio

09/13/2019

Precious Marley Belle was surrendered by her owners this was a heartbreaking decision for them but they could no longer afford or care and wanted to give her the best chance of survival. Marley's Dogtors suspect a liver shunt. She will be going to one of UYR Dogtors today. Once evaluated we will get a referral to Blue Pearl where we hope she will be able to have liver shunt surgery and then move on with a normal life. Marley will need lots of prayers during her treatment and also if you are able to donate toward her care this would be greatly appreciated.... Liver Shunt care and surgery is very costly. Marley will not be ready for adoption for several months. But as always if you are interested in Marley please put in an application and once she is recovered we will begin reviewing applications.

Hello Everyone! It's been awhile since I posted an update and I wanted to let everyone know how I have been doing. Things are going good in my foster home. I no longer smell (Thanks goodness) the infection has cleared up. I have gained a little and now FM says I look much better. I still have very little hair but FM says I have peach fuzz and thats a good thing. I would really love to be able to find my furever home. I promise to be no trouble... FM mom says I get around really well considering I am blind and deaf... I even have started to enjoy being petted more... in the beginning when I first arrived it was very scary and a little painful to be picked up so I didn't want any part of that. But things are getting better. I still spend the majority of my day chilling in my bed. If you think you would be the pawfect home for me please fill out an application.

09/18/19

Hey Everybody... Tasha here I wanted to thank everyone for all your prayers. I went back to the dogtor today and he says my staph infection is all better and the yeast is getting better we are going to continue with my current care. My foster mom says I am a spoiled girl but I don't know what she is talking about she says everyone else feeds themself but I like for FM to feed me. Even though I can't see or hear anything I get along pretty good. I am able to let FM know what I need I just whine and she knows that I either want to be held, go to the bathroom or eat (LOL) She says its going to be a long time before my hair grows back so she has been putting lots of different shirts on me to keep me warm. So if you want a princess in your home. Please fill out an application.

09/04/19

Hello Everyone! Itís been a busy weekend. I arrived at my new foster home on Friday I have been getting lots of love and lots of baths. Foster Mom says the baths are to help my skin and hope my hair will grow back. FM is keeping Tshirts on me to cover me up so right now. Things are going pretty good mom says a smell a little better everyday not sure if itís the medicated baths or the medicines Iím taking but so glad she thinks the smell is getting better. (Who wants to smell? Not me!) I have a super comfy bed to lay in. I spend the majority of the time chilling in my bed. But I have learned to maneuve thru the house pretty well despite being blind and deaf. I don not let my disabilities hold me back! Keep the prayers coming. If you are interested in adopting me please feel out an application.

Initial Bio 8/28/19

Tasha needs YOUR help!!!! She was adopted to a local home from another rescue (which is no longer in business) in 2016. She was in good health at that time. But something went very wrong. After recieveing a call from a concerned animal lover Clarksville Humane Society went out to do a welfare check and found Tasha in horrible condition and in need of medical attention. They were able to convince the owner to surrender her in order to save her life. United Yorkie Rescue was contacted to help get her the care she needs Tasha was immediately taken to a local veterinary clinic for medical care. She was covered in fleasÖ(the fleas had fleas). She has lost all of her hair and had no veterinary care since being adopted. At this point we know very little about her condition. Her teeth are severely infected they are bleeding and puss comes out at the slightest touch. The veterinary clinic has done lab work, and given her a medicated bath and treated for fleas. Unable to do much more at this time due to the fact we are in a holding pattern pending lab results in order to devise the best plan of action to help this sweet girl. At a minimum she will need routine vaccinations, a dental in which she will probably lose the majority of her teethÖ We are hopeful the fleas are the only reason for hair loss and if this is the case then her hair should grow back once we get her medical needs taken care of and a regular healthy diet. All the techs love herÖ and believe it or not they say she is very friendly and is eating like a little pig. United Yorkie Rescue is on a mission to help this sweet girl live her best life.

Meet Tobias, a sweet little boy who was at a shelter for 7 weeks before he came into UYR. He is 9 years old, 8 pounds and is being fostered Near Clarksville TN

THANK YOU TO TOBIAS' RESCUE ANGELS!

Gail Johnson, Lisa-Marie Karr

11/26/19

Hey UYR fans Tobias here just wanting to give you a little update on how I have been doing in my new foster home. I have been thru so much and I am slow to trust people. I will let my foster family pet me and I will take treats from their hands. But still am not comfortable being picked up. It causes me to panic and then I start to squirm and growl. Once I am put down I am fine again... I enjoy laying around relaxing and sleeping on my bed. I do love treats! I am a very good eater and I don't mind to share with my fur brothers and sisters. I get very excited when my humans come home and I even will let them pet me. They continue to be patient with me as I learn to trust humans again. If you think I might be a good fit in your home please put in an application for me... I do want to find my forever home... Just know I need lots of patience and understanding. As always any donations toward my care to help UYR would be greatly appreciated.

08/29/2019

Tobias was in a shelter in CA and his time was up he was set to be euthanized, however UYR stepped in to save this scared little boy. He had is first plane ride with a foster from CA. He was not a fan of the plane ride in the beginning but did settle down some as time went on, he is now in TN staying with his new foster mom who is getting to know him. This little boy is scared therefore he reacts in a snippy manner at times. We are hopeful that once he learns to trust people that he will let his guard down so that he can receive the love he deserves. Please keep Tobias in your prayers. Any donations are appreciated. Tobias is not quite ready to go to his forever home but you can place your applications if you think you might be interested in once we feel he is ready to go to his forever home.


To date we've spent $510.94 on Tobias's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $54.00 in donations.

Woody just arrived late Monday night.... on our drive home Woody appeared to be in respiratory distress. We knew upon intake that would have the all too familiar collapsing trachea, however is breathing seemed labored in addition to his cough. We decided it would be best to take him to Blue Pearl for evaluations. Woody was having difficulty breathing and had some major nasal discharge. He is a sick little boy. After x-rayís and evaluation, the dogtor informed us that he definitely had an upper respiratory infection. He has been placed on a steroids, antibiotics, and cough medicine. Until we get this baby all better, he will not be able to have his vaccines and much needed dental. Even being sick Woody is the sweetest baby he loves to cuddle for sure. He rides great in the car and appears to get along with smaller dogs. Please keep Woody in your prayers while he is recovering. Once He is all better, he will be looking for his forever home. If you think you might be a good fit for Woody Please submit an application for review. Any donations towards his care would be greatly appreciated.

UPDATE BIO. 11/20/19. Hello everyone! I have had a busy week! Foster mom and dad took me to get spayed and this big lump removed from my mammary chain last. While the dogtor was working to remove the lump, he noticed that the entire mammary chain had some growths, so he removed the whole left side. He also found a couple of lumps on the right side, so he removed those, too.I was also suppose to get a full dental, but it had to be a limited to just a brief cleaning due to some complications while under anesthesia.Therefore, I still need to go back and get some more dental work once these big incisions heal. In spite of all that, I am still in good spirits since my foster mom and dad take such wonderful care of me and ensure I am still comfortable.

Now for the kind of bad news- the large mammary mass came back as cancerous. All but one of the others came back as non-cancerous. The dogtor believes that the removal of the cancerous mass has probably removed the risk of the cancer growing and spreading. I will need to be monitored for suspicious lumps for the rest of my days, but the future looks bright for me. Because of this, I muse remind all of you to spay your pups younger than me to limit the risk of developing mammary cancer.

I am getting use to these surgical recovery suits and the cone of shame that foster mom and daad keep on me while I heal, but I am looking forward to the day my stitches come out, and I can be the happy and loving pup I enjoy being. Stay tuned for more of my story and I continue to heal and return to my super sweet and loving self!

Initial Bio 10/27/19: Hello UYR community! My name is Anna Banana and I am he most recent pup to join the UYR Texas team. I am 8 years old and weigh a healthy 14.1 pounds. I was surrendered by my owner since I was a puppy because I they said they just couldn't get me potty trained. Mom kept trying, but dad said I had to go. Luckily mom found the UYR and I didn't have to go to the shelter. I was really scared when I first got to foster mom and dad's house, but they showed me a lot of love and attention from the start and I could see how happy the other pups in the house are. I have quickly warmed up to everyone in the house and now I just love to snuggle on the couch with foster mom or dad. I'm not picky, but just love the attention. Foster mom and dad think that my potty training issues could be because I did not get a lot of attention in my home. I shared the house with a couple other dogs and a few children. Because of this, I do get along well with other dogs and all humans. I am super calm and relaxed and just love spending time with a human. I've been with foster mom and dad for a week and have only had 2 accidents. One was because it was wet and rainy outside (I just didn't want to get all wet) and the other was just an accident. Otherwise, I like to go outside and do my business. I also enjoy just lying on the back porch and watching the day go by.

I went to see the dogtor this week to have my vaccinations and blood work done since I hadn't been to the vet in well over a year. Foster mom and dad were worried I might have some major health issues or maybe even heartworm because I have not been on any preventative, but my blood work came back perfect! I still need some vetting because I am not spayed, need a dental, and I have a mammary tumor. The dogtor says there is a 50% chance this is cancerous, so I will be getting scheduled to have it removed very soon. I will be seeing the dogtor again tomorrow to get all this scheduled. Assuming it is not cancerous, I should be ready to adopt after the surgery, dental, and spay. I came into rescue desperately needing a grooming and nail trim. Foster mom and dad got my nails done quickly and I just got a grooming yesterday. Just check out my pictures.....I have to say I am so cute!

I would be perfect in a home with some patient and understanding parents. I am good with other dogs and children, but don't play much. I am perfectly content on the couch or in a comfy bed. I sleep well through the night in bed with foster mom and dad, as well as my foster mates. I have demonstrated to foster mom and dad that with the proper attention, I am potty trained and prefer to go outside. I might do best in a home where someone is home most of the time. Foster mom and dad are currently working to get me puppy pad trained for the times when they can't be home with me. I have so much love to give and want to be loyal to a loving family. Once you meet me and I look deep into your eyes, you will know you have made the best choice to provide me with a loving home.

Anxiously awaiting your application,

BIO UPDATE: 09/08/19. Bunny's last oncology appointment was absolutely amazing! Dr Jesse did a thorough followup visit on Bunny with xray's, blood work, ultrasound and some fine needle aspirations on a few areas of concern. I am happy to say that EVERYTHING, and I mean EVERYTHING, is just perfect with this baby girl. Her lymph node is normal size, her xrays are just remarkable, her blood work is in on point, her ultrasound showed no areas of concern and she looks amazing on the outside a well.

Bunny has been on a very inexpensive chemo pill that she takes daily. She has had absolutely zero side effects on this medication and it looks as if we are seeing such amazing results...thank you God!! Bunny came to us from such a house of horror and endured such a horrific life but to look at her now, you would never imagine her life has such a horrid past.

This sweet baby is just so full of love and and such a joy to the household. She loves to play with her fur siblings and LOVES belly rubs. She is beautiful in her golden coat with red tinted highlights. A far cry from the baby that had hardly any fur with sores and scaly skin. Her anatomy is all back into place and no longer a tangled mess of "what is that"? When you add LOVE, it is amazing what you see as the result.

Being a former mill baby, Bunny has the most incredible love to give as well. She thrives on a touch which she has found to be a feeling she cannot do without for too terribly long of a time, that and a soft cozy bed!! But of course at nighttime, its that big cozy bed that holds everyone she craves. Although this sweet angel has cancer because of her abuse and neglect from mammary tumors, Bunny is still highly adoptable. Although she has been given a name for something that MAY take her life, she still has so much life to live and give.

IF you are the PERFECT home for Bunny, please contact me at yorkiefostertx@gmail.com. You simply MUST be able to continue to add love, and make sure her life is full of sunshine, belly rubs and touch. Please, complete your application at www.uyr.us if you are that special one...you will be blessed more than you could ever bless her.

Update 7/1/19: United Yorkie Rescue Bunny has an oncology follow up appointment tomorrow! She is maybe 6 to 8yrs old, rescued from the puppy mill we shut down in Texas. She was one of the original Fortunate Four rescued. Bunny has metastatic cancer. We removed her mammary tumors, but sadly they were diagnosed as carcinoma and cancer has spread to her lymph nodes. She is just the most loving princess ever and we are trying to give her some time, which she sooo deserves! Please help us by donating to her care at www.uyr.us or you may also click the button attached. If you aren't able to donate at this time, please share as you never know who may be in a place to do so. Bless you and please keep sweet Bunny in your pray

Update 4/5/19: Bunny was seen by the oncologist and she says she looks amazing. Overall her x-rays look really good as far as she is concerned. She does have a very large heart, she's on Vetmedin for that and at present there is no need to add anything more. Her trachea looks a little more relaxed and does not have such a roller coaster look to it as well. Her bloodwork looks very good. Her lymph node is considerably smaller. Hard to say if this chemo med is the reason why, but she's doing very well. No need for recheck until another 3 months. Despite all that is wrong with her, she's just so incredibly sweet.

BIO UPDATE. 03/01/19. Sweet baby Bunny, when you were a mill baby, wasn't the hell hole you lived in enough! Wasn't it enough that you were bred so damn much that you can't even tell your behind from your vagina, and your tail that lies inside this folded over sheath of skin to make matters worse. No it wasn't enough.

You, my sweet angel, had to have ear infections, bacterial skin infections, fungal looking long painful nails, tooth decay and missing your lower jaw due to decay. Let's add the icing to this cake baby. Your breeder didn't take care of you and all of those mammary tumors either. We did though. United Yorkie Rescue stepped in and we took 2 weeks to try to get weight on your emaciated body and heal some of your issues. We took away those tumors, and that baby maker.

But my sweet angel, sadly your breeder gave you something I can't fix...sadly we received the news today from Bunny's oncologist that she has metastatic cancer. But Bunny do you know how fortunate you truly are? You are in my home now. Your life of pain and misery will be a faded memory. You will have soft beds and blankets every day. I have enough love to take you on this journey, and you have a family outside of our walls that already love you as well.

I ask everyone to please keep Bunny in your prayers for these next few months. Please continue to help us with her medical needs. Please donate to her care at www.uyr.us. Thank you and Bless you!

Update 2/23/19: This morning I sat in the vet's office with Dr. Jessie and just cried. You know you can only be strong to a point, and today was just the tip of that point. Bunny, one of the Fortunate Four mill rescue babies, finally had her appointment with an oncologist because during her first vet visit after rescue, the vet discovered not only did she have a very bad heart murmur, but chest x-rays showed her trachea to have this roller coaster look to it. Did any of this matter... not really... because her exam zeroed in on a swollen lymph node in her groin. She took Bunny to the back, aspirated the node, looked at the slide and saw cells that shouldn't be there but officially, we wait until Monday for the pathologist to give us the report. Bunny's doctor at that point told me what time we maybe looking at, and the tears just started to flow in my eyes and in hers as well. She listened to me telling her how this precious baby deserved so much more time of the good than the hell she lived in, and how much pain we see them go through after the rescue because we have to fix all the horrible things that their abusers neglected to care for. I will guarantee you she will be a princess for whatever time God has planned for her and I will make sure this mill is put to rest for her. In the meantime, Bunny needs your prayers! We also ask you to please help us share her story, and please, please donate so we can medically support Bunny and the Fortunate Four mill rescue's.

Thank you UYR family!!!

UPDATE 02/22/19. Bunny is home!! As you may remember, her presurgical exam once again alerted to a 5 out of 6 heart murmur, so x-rays were once again performed to look at the chest. Sadly, they feel what they are seeing is real and Bunny has been referred to oncology for answers regarding her chest. We have an appointment with the Oncologist on Saturday the 23rd, where we will be doing additional testing so we can get answers as to what is lying under her sternum and in those lymph nodes. I am also heavy feeding Bunny, even more so than before, to try to turn her weight loss around. I know her sur sibling in the mill rescue, Cash, did not have any weight gain as well, although Bunny had a 2lb loss! I am praying that these babies were just so stressed, and their bodies just need time to turn this around.

We also have started Bunny on specialty compounded eye drops for her dry eye, and instead of looking at gooey flat dull eyes there is a sparkly shine that was so absent!! She did get her spay, which also included an excise of an almond shaped mass attached to her uterus, another lipoma like mass on her left side as well, and 9 mammary tumors as well. Biopsies have been sent out with results due in possibly today. Please In the meantime, please continue to support these babies as these specialty Drs come with specialty tests which we need for answers regarding Bunny.

Update 2/9/19: We now have a current picture of Bunny who is another one of the Fortunate Four that was recently rescued from the puppy mill last week. Bunny is currently receiving medicated baths due to flea and tick infestation. She has major hair loss all over her body however, her vets feel this is due to the infestation her body endured. Bunny is EXTREMELY emaciated and cannot undergo surgery for her needs so let me tell you where we are in her treatment. Bunny had severe bilateral ear infections in which we treated her this past week with an antibiotic. She also had a vicious eye infection in both eyes. She has received antibiotics for that as well, and now we are treating her eyes with a lubricating gel to protect her vision and her tear production. Bunny is horribly disfigured in her genital area from being nothing more than a breeding machine. It is very hard to differentiate her anatomy and even her tail, as it is engulfed in a sheath of thickening skin. She has a ravenous appetite and we are hoping that she will have some weight gain that will add to her stability during her upcoming surgery. Bunny also has a 5 out of 6 heart murmur. As stated before, her lymph nodes that lie under her sternum are so enlarged with all of this infection that we have started her on vetmedin to protect her heart as her body heals. Along with all of this, Bunny has lost some of her lower jaw due to horrific detal decay and we will have to see after her dental if there are any teeth we can save. She will need a spay. We also know, she has many mammary tumors as well so we are expecting to have biopsies and possible entire chain removal depending of the status of these tumors. Please continue to support us with these horrifically abused angels.

Update 2/5/19: This is precious Bunny, the second of the Fortunate Four puppy mill dogs just taken in. Bunny has very unusual anatomy near her rectum and vagina which is a result of prolonged over-breeding. She has multiple mammary tumors on both sides and evidence of recent and frequent nursing. Bunny has almost no lower jaw bone and no lower teeth at all. Her uppers are barely hanging on from years of dental neglect. She has severe bacterial skin infection and bilateral ear infections and is extremely thin bordering on emaciation. Bunny was going to have surgery tomorrow for her mammary tumors but she has been diagnosed with a pretty bad heart murmur; grade 5 of 6. X-rays revealed that the lymph nodes under her sternum are so enlarged from years of chronic infection that they are pressing on her sternum and trachea which can compromise her airway so anesthesia is not advised until her infection is under control. She has been started on antibiotics and medication to treat heart failure and her surgery is postponed until she is more stable.

UPDATE BIO. !2/05/19.

Adorable Enana, Spanish for "Runt", was flown to us from California. This poor angel had been spending every week at the vet with body shakes, seizures, throwing up and high bile acids. There was suspicion of liver shunt and her owner was just not financially able to care for her, so they reached out to us. We immediately worked up a veterinary plan and flew her to her foster mom, who has prior shunt knowledge, in Texas.

This sick little 5 to 6 lb angel arrived and after extensive testing a visible liver shunt was ruled out from the scintigraphy, but her GI showed inflammation and her gallbladder and liver were questionable. She underwent exploratory surgery and it was evident that her gallbladder needed an immediate removal. Various biopsies of her liver and GI tract were performed to get answers regarding Enana's illness. Biopsies showed Enana's little body suffers from micro-vascular dysplasia. The presence of multi-focal closely apposed portal areas, miniaturized portal areas, and distorted profiles in a few portal areas meant that Enana has micro-shunts plus a bad gallbladder (now removed). This left her body not being able to process or filter blood properly. Along with the micro shunts, she also suffers from inflammatory bowel disease. This type of disease affects her ability to process protein so she requires a special diet. She suffers with re-flux and still has issues with vomiting occasionally but it is on a rare occasion now..

Although there is no more surgical cure for Enana, she will just require medications to protect her liver and her GI for the rest of her life. I would also like to add she may also need yearly xrays or bloodwork to follow up on her progress. The medications are not very expensive and the yearly physical should be fairly easy to manage as well. Enana has come such a long way from 9 meds to 3 and with good care she should live a great long life just like all normal yorkies.

Enana is such a happy l'il Diva who loves to be the boss! She is VERY lovable and loves to sleep right by you in the bed at night. She loves going in the car and she never meets a stranger. She brings us laughter every day with her "yorkietude". Poor baby, she does not like dogs 😬, but the pack in my home and her have learned that she prefers to be left alone or to be the center of attention so they let her. She is not a fighter at all, just a grumpy mess around the pack. She absolutely adores children and has no issues with cats either. Enana's purfect home would be one that is where she is the center of "her" world, HAHA, with no other dogs. If you think you have that purfect home for this little 6lb love bug, please fill out an application at our website at www.uyr.us. She is located in the Looking for Love Section on the left hand side. Click on that tab and scroll down to Texas, then Enana! Please remember we are in our "Giving Week", so if you care to donate towards her high medical costs it would be so appreciated! Once again, go to www.uyr.us to the donate button on the bottom of the home page. Bless you, thank you, and Merry Christmas!!

Thank you EVERYONE for loving her!

9/15/19 Since Enanas surgery, we still aren't seeing what we had hoped for. Enana does have liver disease and gastrointestinal disease confirmed with her biopsies. Her bile acids have lowered some, but they are still high, hence, we have hepatic microvascular dysplasia. We are currently on 7 different meds to help her and protect the liver and GI tract as well. We have also had a couple of mild seizures. We will see the Internal Med specialist this upcoming week, so please keep her in your prayers. Her care has been extremely costly for our rescue so please, if possible, donate and share this lil princess's story. Bless you and thank you!!

8/31/19 We are still waiting for final biopsies on Monday. Enana is home. She is starting to eat now and on a med to help with her appetite. I will probably update her on the 3rd after her re-visit with the surgeon.

8/21/19 This little princess Enana, needs your prayers today. She's having a huge surgical procedure for biopsies of her liver and GI. She will be in the hospital for 3 days ��Please pray for her and for answers!

Surgeon just called. They are currently removing her gallbladder... keep the prayers coming! Serious surgery for a little one.

Enana is ICU. She's being spoiled because everyone just loves her. She will be there through Friday at least. Biopsies won't be back until next week. Meantime, prayers for a good recovery from this dangerous surgery and good biopsy results!!

8/9/19: Precious little 6 lb medical Enana has been in rescue now for one month today. Enana came to us from California after spending months at the vet with shaking, vomiting, sometimes even becoming ataxic, then ultimately presenting with elevated bile acids indicating possible liver shunt. Upon her arrival we made appointments for her nuclear scintigraphy and visit with the surgeon. Her scintingraphy was performed along with a specialized ultrasound. These tests indicated that there was not a visible shunt, however, there were issues noted within the gall bladder, the spleen was slightly enlarged and with reference to the liver they cannot rule out microvascular dysplasia or a hepatopathy/hepatitis. Issues within the liver can not be ruled out without the further testing by biopsy of the liver as well as additional biopsies of the GI. We need to get answers so we can ultimately give this little 6lb nugget her life back. Testing has already been expensive at $3k and additional testing will be another $3.5k. This pricing again is for running diagnostics and biopsies and not including any surgical intervention if that may be needed once answers are found. Please remember that we have quite a few medical babies in our care and we are so blessed with donations that you may be able to extend to her care. Without you, this is not possible and we are just beyond blessed by our donors!! Once this baby is well we will address her future, but please help us help Enana (pronounced E-nana) at www.uyr.us. Much love to you all!!!

INITIAL BIO. 7/14/2019: Sweet little 7yr old, 6 lb Enana is flying here tomorrow from California. Enana has spent the majority of the past two months under veterinary care due to a multitude of issues. Finally, a bile acid test was performed which proved high bile acids and is indicative of an issue with the liver and a possible liver shunt.

This sweet angel will be seeing a specialist for testing Thursday, and then we visit with the surgeon the following Tuesday. If her results indicate an operable shunt(s), she will have immediate surgery on that date. We ask that you please keep Enana in your prayers as we go through this process. The imaging and upcoming surgery will be incredibly expensive for our rescue. We also ask you to also please donate to her care. This angel is just so adorably sweet and full of love to give, let's give her that life! Due to the possibility of surgery, Enana is not ready for adoption for at this time.


To date we've spent $9669.83 on Enana's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $3066.00 in donations.
Please donate!

Texas
Gizmo

Meet the Magnificent Gizmo! A 15 year old, 7.8 pound Yorkie boy who is part of a truly Dynamic Duo! He is being fostered alongside his brother, Ziggy, in Pflugerville, TX. He & his brother are going through medical treatment with some surgeries in the wings. Please consider donating towards their care as they would appreciate it :)

THANK YOU TO GIZMO'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Lynne Turner, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Lynne Turner, Donna Williams, JC Pham

Initial Bio 11-27-19: Gizmo joined UYR on Nov. 27 (Thanksgiving Eve), alongside his brother of 15 years, Ziggy. Gizmo began life in a loving home with his brother & spent many years there. Sadly, his owner became ill and unable to care for them both & then passed away. Both boys found themselves on hard times, neglected and ended up in a shelter. Those kind souls lent Ziggy & Gizmo a hand & got them into the loving arms of UYR so they could get back on their feet.

These days, Gizmoís eyesight isnít what it used to be, but he still loves to outside & has been eager to slowly check out his foster home. His hearing & smell is absolutely on point! He is currently working on getting his weight up after some lean times & just needs some love and a warm lap to curl up on. He is such a sweet boy and loves to just chill next to you.

Gizmo is currently dealing with some bladder stones right now that will soon be resolved with his new diet. Additionally, Gizmo is on soft food until his upcoming dental surgery & will need to stay on wet food going forward. Gizmo says he absolutely does not mind!

Gizmo currently has two small tumors on his upper and lower eyelids on his left eye due to neglect. These will shortly be addressed with surgery once he gets his weight up. Oh, and Gizmo is a polite boy. He is superbly potty trained and will only go outside. Even with all that he has gone through, not one accident!

Please stay tuned for more updates to come as this Dynamic Duo get back on track for their furever home!


To date we've spent $346.02 on Gizmo's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $420.00 in donations.

Pepper

Pepper is the sweetest yorkie girl who is 12 years old and 7 pounds. She is being fostered in Richardson, TX.

THANK YOU TO PEPPER'S RESCUE ANGELS!

8/7/19: Hi everyone, Pepper here! Iím am doing so good in my foster home. My eye that we thought we might have to take out has been healing great after some surgery by Dr. Sam! Itís 85% healed. My diabetes is under control and Iím looking great. Iím scheduled to have a dental this week. Not really excited about that but... excited to have a sparkling mouth. My foster mom says Iím such a good girl. I love to go outside and do my business and just walk around in the sun. I get along with all my foster sisters and brother. Life is good now just canít wait to find my forever home.

07/12/19 INITIAL BIO. Hey everyone! My name is Pepper. I am a 12 year old female Yorkie with grey and silver Fur. I weigh about 8.8 lbs and just recently found out I am diabetic. I came to UYR after being taken to the shelter to be put down by my mom of 12 years. This was heartbreaking, thankfully someone at the shelter contacted UYR and said I had so much life still in me. They saved me!

Now I am in my new foster home with my foster family, getting use to my new life and changes with my diet and blood sugar. I wasnít feeling good and my foster mom took me to get checked. That is where it all started. I was in the emergency vet for 4 days. Thankfully I am a brand new puppy- feeling great and playing with my new foster siblings.

I get along great with older dogs and kids. My foster mom says I am the sweetest thing around. I have to get insulin shots every 12 hours which donít really bother me at all and eye drops for an ulcer thatís healing. The part that is a bummer is I canít have a treat!

BIO UPDATE. 12/04/19. Hello UYR fan club! I have some interesting news that may surprise some of my loyal fans. Foster mom and dad picked up some medicine for me on Monday evening for my heartworm treatment and when they got home and looked at the pills, both agreed that it seemed like a large dose for such a small pup. So foster dad did some research to what the recommended dose per pound is and found out that the prescription was too much for my reported 3.1lb weight. This raised a big question, so dad decided to weigh me at home. To his surprise I weighed in right at 7 pounds! Now he knew that I had not doubled in size in the short time I've been with foster mom and dad (even though they feed me some super delicious food). So they immediately called their team lead (the boss, hehe) to ask if they could get a copy of the vet records. And what they found out caused quite some embarrassment. It seems I was originally weighed in kg and not pounds. I guess since they figured I was from England they would use the metric system. Like I would know the difference, I'm just a dog.So mystery solved, I am 7 pounds. Foster mom and dad want to apologize to anyone who has submitted an application solely because I was so small. But hey, I live here with two other fosters that are 10 pounds and 14 pounds. I can see how mom and dad would think I was only 3 pounds surrounded by such larger siblings. LOL

BIO UPDATE. 11/16/19. Hello UYR Community. Ruby here again to give you a little snip-it on my life here with my foster mom and dad.I had a big week and am now recovering from a little time at the dogtor.I went in on Tuesday to get spayed and have my teeth cleaned. I think someone needs to better explain what teeth cleaning means because I thought the dogtor would just brush my teeth extra good and just give me some mouth wash. Boy, was I wrong!He did get all the tarter off my teeth, but he kept a few of them as souvenirs! I guess I shouldn't complain too much because I sure can whistle now! But I still in a little pain, and only eating soft food, which I do like. My spay also went very well, and now I have a scar on my belly that foster dad says just makes me look tough. Not sure if that was the look I was going for, but he sure seems to like it.

Before surgery, the dogtor was worried about my cough being an indication of heart failure due to these darn heartworms, but he did an xray of my chest to be sure there were no issues before putting me under. All turned out wonderfully. So the good news is that I appear to be moving through the heartworm treatment very well. I am scheduled to get my first injection treatment the first week of December. It is scary because I am told it is painful and will make me feel bad for some time.

Well, hopefully foster dad is right about my scar, and it does toughen me up for the next stage of heartworm treatment. I won't be available for adoption until my heartworm treatment is complete. So, just stay posted for updates on my progress!

Update 10/27/19: Hello everyone! I just wanted to get on here and let everyone know how special you've made me feel. I have had a lot of folks contact my foster mom and dad concerned about my condition. A few have filled out applications to adopt me and some even made donations! The UYR community sure knows how to make a girl feel special.

I have been with foster mom and dad for a month now and really getting comfortable with the routine around here. The food is great, the love endless, the daily visits from the dog walker much appreciated, and hanging out with my foster mates really keeps me from getting lonely while mom and dad are at work. I am in my second month of the heartworm treatment and still battling this cough. I have an appointment tomorrow with the dogtor to address this again and for a quick follow up on my treatment. I still have several more months to go before I am ready to be adopted, but I am looking forward to the day where I get a special home to show me the love and attention I deserve. I do have to tell you potential adopters a little secret. Foster mom and dad introduced my to this thing they call a bully bone. Not sure what it is exactly, but I do know that I absolutely LOVE them. So much so, that I try to take them from my foster mates and carry as many as I can in my mouth around the house to be sure I get them all. Foster mom and dad don't like this much, so they try to take them away from me; which I really don't like. I guess it's for my own good, but if I had it my way, I would eat these all day long.

So my ideal home will be one that has an endless supply of bully bones and someone with me most of the day to make sure I don't over do it with them. I do get along with the other pups in the house, but I would be fine as the only one receiving all the attention. Due to my small size, I can't be in a home with children under the age of 12. If you think you are the one for me, please fill out an application using the link at the bottom, or contact foster mom and dad directly at the email listed below. Please give them a little time to respond, as they both work and keep pretty busy with me and my three other pups in the house.

INITIAL BIO: 09/29/19. Hello UYR fans! My name is Ruby, and I come to the United Yorkie Rescue a very sick baby. I was surrendered by a loving home that recently purchased me and quickly realized after a trip to the dogtor that my treatment was going to be very intensive and costly. They decided the best hope for the care I need was to allow the UYR to take control and get me healthy.

I am heartworm positive, in desperate need of a dental, spay, microchip, and have a chronic cough. All this, and I am only 3 years old! Foster mom and dad got me to the vet quickly to begin a treatment plan.Due to my only 3.1lb. size, the treatment will be long and invasive. The cough could be a symptom of my heartworm, as the cough medication has not been overly helpful. The heartworm treatment will be at a minimum five months, according to the dogtor. I could not be scheduled for my dental or spay because I am in heat, too. Talk about being dealt a losing hand!

Even though I have all these health issues, foster mom and dad say I am the sweetest pup they have come across so far. I love to snuggle next to one of them and occasionally like to roll over for a belly rub. But know that if you stop too soon, I will reach up with my paw and push your hand back toward my belly. Just feels so darn good. I am a good eater, great with the other dogs in the house, friendly to people, and best of all house trained! I don't bark, unless the house chihuahua gets all of us started. But who could resist to join the celebration? At least that's what I think it is. I also love to lay with my back to foster mom or dad at night in the warm and cozy bed and sleep through the night. I will be looking forward to meeting some new folks once I have completed my treatment and am perfectly healthy.

Stay tuned for more updates as my treatment continues.

Texas
Ziggy

Meet the Extraordinary Ziggy! A 15 year old, 4.5 pound Yorkie boy who is the second part of a truly Dynamic Duo! He is being fostered alongside his brother, Gizmo, in Pflugerville, TX. He & his brother are going through medical treatment with some surgeries in the wings. Please consider donating towards their care as they would appreciate it :)

THANK YOU TO ZIGGY'S RESCUE ANGELS!

Lynne Turner, Karry Rogers, Wendy Fuhrmaneck, Lynne Turner, JC Pham

Initial Bio 11-27-19:

Ziggy joined UYR on Nov. 27 (Thanksgiving Eve), alongside his brother of 15 years, Gizmo. Ziggy started his life in a loving home with his brother & spent many years there. Sadly, his owner became ill and unable to care for them both & then passed away. Both boys found themselves on hard times, neglected and ended up in a shelter. Those kind souls lent Ziggy & Gizmo a hand & got them into the loving arms of UYR so they could get back on their feet.

Over the years, Ziggy has developed cataracts, but that didnít stop him as his nose & hearing are as sharp as ever! He is also currently working on getting his weight up after some lean times & just needs some love and a warm lap to curl up on. He is dealing with some bladder stones right now that will soon be resolved with his new diet. Additionally, Ziggy is on soft food until his upcoming dental surgery, but has a ravenous appetiteÖ for Food & Life! He will need to stay on wet food going forward as well, but who doesnít love that? Ziggy does :)

Ziggy has an incredible spirit & a zest for life! Such a curious fellow, too! He enjoys walking through the yard, with the sun on his face & snuggling under his blankets. He is not shy once you get to know him & never lets his vision get in the way as he loves exploring his new foster home. Oh, and Ziggy is a polite boy. He is superbly potty trained and will only go outside. Even with all that he has gone through, not one accident!

Please stay tuned for more updates to come as this Dynamic Duo get back on track for their furever home!

Bear

Bear is estimated 5-year-old, 10 pound Yorkie boy being fostered near Boydton , VA.

Initial bio 9/26/19: Bear is up to date on all shots , neutered and microchipped. He's going to make someone a wonderful pet. Bear would benefit from having another fur baby to play with. He LOVES to play with his Foster doggie Brother Rhett Muttler. A family with older children who would play with him would be great. He likes to soft bite your hand while playing.

Bear will mark his territory so he wears a belly band while indoors. He doesn't mind. He loves the outdoors and will run out the door if you're not watching so a fenced in yard would be ideal for this energetic boy. Bear loves to cuddle in bed with you. He is an absolutely delightful doggie. He isnít a picky eater and adores treats. We are working on leash walking. If you think Bear is the one for your family or have any questions.

Beautiful Gemma

All I want for Christmas is my forever family ❌⭕️❌⭕️
Virginia
Gemma Lynn

Gemma Lynn is a sweet girl 1.5 years old, 8-pound Yorkie being fostered near , VA.

Updated Bio: 11/30/2019

Gemma Lynn is a 2.6 year-old, 8.9 pound Yorkie & is being fostered in Stafford VA. Gemma originally belonged to a mom and her adult autistic daughter. The mom stated that Gemma did not like her daughter and would continually bark and nip at her whenever she walked into a room. Gemma does not mind being in a crate and according to her mom finds it very comforting. Gemma is not house trained and does not walk on a leash. Her foster parents are working with her to help her start learning this very important behavior but will need lots of patience and consistency to get this skill down. Gemma is a sweet girl who want to be in your arms at all times, doesn't mind occasional car rides, loves to sleep right next to your head, is always under foot, and would prefer to be loved by one person. Gemma does not like small children, large dogs, and cowers around men. She is spayed and up to date on all her shots. Gemma was diagnosed with pancreatitis within a week of being with her foster parents but is doing much better. Her doctor was not sure what caused this. Being left alone causes Gemma a lot of stress. A perfect home for Gemma Lynn would be one where she is the only dog, has no children, and her humans are patient and have lots of time and energy to devote to her. Gemma needs to catch up on learning the skills that most dogs learn as puppies. A fenced yard would be a plus but not an absolute requirement if her humans can walk her frequently outdoors on a harness.

Inital Bio 11/2/19

Bella is an 8lb 1Ĺ year old Yorkie mix. She is an absolute love bug. She loves attention and to snuggle with her human. She gets along very well with other dogs her size and would prefer a playmate she can wrestle and sleep with. Bella is good about pottying outside as long as you take her out regularly. She hasnít learned to tell you if she has to potty. She is not a fan of using a crate but will sleep quietly through the night in one after she settles down and knows her human is close. She would prefer to sleep with you in the bed. Sheís a good eater and loves treats. Bella is a little nervous riding in the car and is good with a leash. She will require a fenced in yard to keep her safe. She also gets along with young children. Bella would be best with a human that is home most of the day to be with her.

UPDATE Bio: 09/11/19. Lily is the tiniest three pound little girl with a really big health issue. Lily has PLE, Protein Losing Enteropathy. She came cross country to United Yorkie Rescue because her foster mom has experience with the disease. Recommended for euthanasia last January, it's been nine months and she's still with us.

Lily requires periodic vet checks and a rather expensive diet and supplement program. Combined, she's avoiding the worst symptoms of the disease that will eventually lead to the end of her life. With careful attention, Lily may live a few years and that's our goal.

Please consider donating to Lily's vet bills. The blood tests tell us how to proceed and keep her comfortable

Initial Bio 2/22/19: Little Lily needs our help now! This tiny little girl is very sick. She has had chronic diarrhea since October, is losing weight, and is starting to lose her hair. She weighs a slight 3 1/2 pounds. Her vets recommended euthanasia but her owner didn't give up. Lily's mom went to work to find a rescue experienced in PLE, Protein Losing Enteropathy, often fatal in Yorkies. Her owner drove Lily halfway across the US to her new home. Putting all personal feelings aside, Lily's owner did the final act of love and asked us to save her precious little girl. Lily just had her first vet appointment. Her vet did confirm PLE. She had tests performed and is on several medications. Her follow-up visit is in two weeks. This visit will determine if Lily is responding to her new regimen. She may never be healed, but we are hoping to manage her disease. How a four pound Yorkie has survived this deterioration to her intestinal tract is a testament to her survival skills. Please donate to save this tiny sweet girl's life. This will be a long process to save her. She is not available for adoption at this time so her vet bills will need donations. We will update her prognosis soon.


To date we've spent $1217.89 on Lily WV's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $925.00 in donations.

UUPDATE BIO: 09/11/19. Merry, the tiny three pound senior found collapsed on the streets of Brooklyn last December, is still with us. After spending months building up her strength, she had three surgeries. She had multiple mammary tumors removed, a spay, and her last teeth removed.

Fifteen years old Merry is doing well but cannot seem to gain weight. She gets a very good diet and it seems to keep her going. Foster mom cooks for her and gives her Manuka honey and golden paste to heal her tiny body. Soon she will return to the vet to see if her tumors came back.

Please consider donating to sweet little Merry. Her surgeries were costly and she needs a recheck.

Update 4/1/19: Sweet tiny 14 year old Merry really needs our help. She had three surgeries today and her bill is over $1100. Little four pound Merry was found in bitter cold December, collapsed on the streets of Brooklyn, starved, unable to walk. Merry came to us still unable to walk. Her strength was slowly built until she could withstand three serious surgeries. She had a mammary tumor, a spay was needed to prevent more tumors, and her last two teeth were causing pain. Finally in April, she was able to get the care she needed after rebuilding her strength. Merry was quite a risk for surgery but there was no choice. The mammary tumor was growing. Merry sailed right through the surgeries and came home looking for her dinner. She has two pain meds and she is going to be watched closely. Please consider donating to help with this bill. Without our donors, Merry could not have been given the care she so desperately needed.

INITIAL BIO. 12/11/18. Welcome Merry, our Christmas Yorkie, to United Yorkie Rescue. Merry has quite a story that may turn out to be a Christmas miracle. United Yorkie Rescue takes in many Yorkies every year, and we get them ready for adoption. But there is another part of the rescue that touches us all. It's the little ones we get that are desperately clinging to life.

Merry, 14 years old, blind, and only four pounds, was brought into the Brooklyn New York shelter, starving, emaciated, and unable to walk. The vet records noted her condition was guarded to poor. The shelter reached out to us asking to help this little soul. Honestly, we thought she was coming here to pass in a warm safe place. Merry made the seven hour journey and she never stood. She got home, got a bath, a bed, and a warm dinner. Foster mom left her in her bed in a quiet room to feed the other fosters. Upon returning, there was feeble little Merry, about three feet from her bed, making little tiny prancing steps!

Merry got another meal before before retiring for the night. She goes to the vet tomorrow and our goal is to keep her comfortable. We don't know how this tiny soul ended up abandoned on the streets of New York in the freezing winter. What we do know is that we are dedicated to making her retirement the best part of her life. Please consider helping little Merry, our Christmas rescue. We may not be able to adopt out this little girl so she will rely only on donations. On her freedom ride home, Frank Sinatra was singing "Have yourself a Merry little Christmas, may your heart be light. From now on your troubles will be out of sight." Merry became her name. She is safe for the rest of her life.


To date we've spent $1670.32 on Merry's vet bills, but with your support we've collected $1675.00 in donations.

11/29/2019: Harley may need cataract surgery, and we see the ophthalmologist on January 6, 2020. Foster Mom will consider adoption applications, but no adoption decisions will be made until AFTER the January eye appointment.

Harley does appear to have one cataract eye, and some skin allergies. We will visit the vet next week to establish a treatment plan. Harley will like need eye drops for the rest of her life, at a cost of around $30 per month.

Harley is up to date on all immunizations, and she is microchipped.
