I have the best family any dog could ever want. I am so lucky.
Turbo

6/7/21 Turbo was adopted today. Who said a senior dog is too old to be adopted? Certainly not Turbo.Today this 15 year old senior boy found the rest of his life forever home. Turbo's first owner who had him since he was a puppy passed away. When she passed she left Turbo to her granddaughter. Unfortunately, as much as her granddaughter wanted to keep him, Turbo needed some medical care she was unable to get for him. Turbo needed to have all his vaccinations updated, he needed a dental, and like many older dogs he had some fatty masses on his body that needed to be checked out by a vet and if necessary removed. Turbo got the vetting care he needed as well as a great foster home where he received lots of love and care. Today Turbo found his new forever family. He has a fur sister and some human brothers and sisters too. It only took a minute before they loved Turbo and he loved them right back. His foster mom knew the minute Turbo walked into their house he was home and Turbo knew it too. This 15 year old senior dog is playful and happy. He still has lots of life in him yet. Turbo wants to tell you, please don't pass us older ones by. We have lots of life and love still to give and we are so grateful for the forever home you have provided for us no matter how many years we have left. Happy Tails, Turbo, you deserve this.

I got adopted today. I know I will be so happy.

I love my new mom and dad.
Harlan

6/6/21 Harlan was adopted today. Harlan was with his former mommy since he was a puppy, but sadly she had to move and couldn't take Harlan with her. It broke her heart to leave him. Harlan adjusted slowly to his foster home. He missed his mommy. It took a few days, but finally Harlan decided that his foster family was okay and he was going to be just fine there. He felt like it was his job to protect his new home and family. His foster mom worked to assure Harlan that he didn't have to worry about them and he could just have fun being a young almost 4 year old pup. Harlan's foster mom knew Harlan needed a home where his new mom and dad would be very patient with him and let him adjust at his own pace. Today that is exactly the family he got. They know he will need patience and loveand understand while he becomes a part of his new family. He will have all their attention as the only fur baby in their lives. He won't be left alone very often and he will get to go with them whenever and wherever they can take him. There is even a perfect fenced backyard for Harlan. He can run around and play and when he is tired he can soak up the sun. Harlan will have the best forever life of his life. Happy Tails little Harlan.

My new mom and dad love me so much already.
Kazie

5/29/21 Kazie, the sweetest little tripod, was adopted today. Kazie came from the shelter. Her owners sadly surrendered the 10-month-old puppy because they couldn't afford to have her leg repaired. They hoped the shelter would have someone who could help her. Kazie had been attached by a dog. It was so bad that the dog broke the bone in leg. There were bite wounds all over. One bite was so severe it was oozing. When the call came from the shelter United Yorkie Rescue was there to get Kazie within an hour.

The vet was able to repair Kazie's leg by putting a rod in it. After a month the bone healed and the rod was removed, but no matter what her foster parents did to rehabilitate that leg so Kazie would use it, she never did. A few weeks later the Kazie developed and infection in her lower leg. The vet knew there was no alternative but to amputate her leg. Dog bites are notoriously dirty, their mouth contains a lot of bacteria. Even with two rounds of antibiotics and irrigation of the wound a few times as well as treating it with antibacterial cream, the bacteria won. Her leg was full of infection.

After the amputation Kazie was the happiest little girl without that leg. Within days she was up and around and by the end of the first week she was running a little and then a lot and was the puppy she was always meant to be. She was ready for her forever home and today that happened. She has a wonderful stay at home mom and dad, a great big yard to run around in, which she loves, lots of toys, doggie beds, and even another dog to play with if she wants. They have promised Kazie to love her forever and give her the best life any pup could have. Kazie couldnt have asked for a better life. Her foster parents will miss her a lot, but they know Kazie is going to have a wonderful, happy life for the rest of her life.

I am going to my forever home with my new daddy.
Teddy

5/21/21 Teddy was adopted today. Teddy became a United Yorkie Rescue pup when his mom developed some serious health issues and was no longer able to care for him. Sadly, Teddy hadn't received much vetting care in the past few years. At his foster home he went for a grooming and had his vet appointment. He passed with flying colors. He had a yeast infection in both ears and that was treated with medications. Teddy got his neuter and dental and after his recuperation he was ready for his forever home. Today Teddy went to his forever home and now has a great daddy that is all his. Teddy's new daddy is home all the time and Teddy will be the center of his life. Teddy will have so much love and attention and care. Welcome to the rest of your happily ever after, Teddy.

My forever home is so nice and calm and I love it here.
Harry

5/19/21 Harry was adopted today. This sweet boy lost his first mommy. For the first almost 3 1/2 years of Harry's life it was just Harry and his mommy. They lived a quiet, happy life. Then his mommy was gone and Harry went to live with another family. This family loved him, but Harry was so unhappy. There were so many people, and so much noise, and a baby who wanted to run after him, add into all that a big German Shepherd. Harry spent his time retreating into a safe space where no one could bother him. They knew that as much as they loved him, their home was not the right one for Harry. They asked United Yorkie Rescue to find a home for him where he would be happier. Harry did great in his foster home. He loved the calm and quiet. He loved the attention and love, and he loved have one little doggie friend. Today Harry found a forever home that would give him everything he loved in his foster home, a quiet home with a doggie friend. There was also a bonus. He has a great big fenced yard. Harry is so happy in his forever home. Harry got a home with everything he needed and wanted. Happy Tails sweet Harry. You will have the best life ever.

Sugar and her new family. What a lucky girl she is.5/9/21
Sugar

5/9/21 Sweet Sugar was adopted today. Sugar's former owners took her to the shelter and told them they could no longer care for her. She lost the only home she had known never to return, only to find herself in a noisy, crowded, shelter full of other sad, scared, souls just like Sugar. That was when United Yorkie Rescue was called and asked would we take her, of course we would. Sugar didn't know what to expect and she curled her lip in fear when anyone approached. Sugar was again sad, scared, and very stressed. She did not yet understand she was one of the lucky ones to make it out of the shelter. Sugar had her vet appointing and the news wasn't so good. She was unable to stand or walk due to no muscle mass in her legs. She was emaciated to the point of starvation. She was severely anemic from hook worms. Sugar needed so much care. She needed proper nutrition, a dental, and a lot of rehabilitation. Finally, Sugar got well and was ready for her forever home. She has a wonderful new mommy all to herself, which is what wanted more than anything. Sugar loves to be the center of her person's attention and get all the love and cuddles to herself. Today this sweet senior girl got that. We know Sweeter than Sugar found her fairly tail Happily Ever After.

Baxter TX (nee Nicky)

5/1/21 Baxter found his perfect forever happy home with a great family who has been trained in how to handle his feedings to prevent aspiration. Although we did undertake the oral-nasal fistual repair, a stitch has already come loose. The new family will be following up closely on this, but after this second repair, a third will not likely be successful. So care needs to be taken to manage his condition during healing. Hooray for Baxter.

I have A new wonderful mom and dad. Lucky me.
Cooper

4/24/21 Cooper was adopted today and he has the best family a little doggie could ever want. There was never a dog happier to be out of the shelter than Cooper. He couldn't get into his rescue angel's car fast enough. He was harnessed in and before he could even settle down, he gave her kisses and love. Why this sweet dog ended up in the shelter we may never know? He did have some issues, like a mass on his leg and mats and tangles in his shaggy hair but still his foster mom and dad said what a sweet sweet boy. His only one issue was he wanted to be an only dog in the family and get all the love and attention. Today that is exactly what happened. He is a wonderful new mom and dad, no other pup in the home, and someone who will be home with him almost all the time. He will get long walks he loves and best of all he will be the only fur baby to get all the love, the kisses, and the cuddles. Hooray for Cooper. He will never be a shelter dog again. He will be a loved forever, well cared for fellow

Ellie and her new mom and dad. It is love.
Ellie

4/18/21 Ellie was adopted today. Beautiful Ellie went to her forever home today. She will be an only dog with love and love and more love every day. Ellie was sadly surrendered to the shelter when her owner could not afford to keep her any longer. This sweet, friendly, little girl had a short history of urinary issues, yet before she came to us, she had only seen the vet once about it. There were many things that could have been causing this, but they were unable to get her the veterinary care she needs. As soon as Ellie became a United Yorkie Rescue dog she was taken to the vet. Ellie was given a complete medical exam and found to be in good health. She was given medicine for incontinence and after a little trial and error with the dosage Ellie is now able to control her bladder and was ready for her forever home. Her new mommy and daddy know lots about little dogs and Ellie will now be the center of their world. They are ready to give Ellie the best life ever. Ellie has found her happily ever after and has a wonderful home forever and ever.

My Mom and Dad love me so much.

That is me in the middle. This is the best home ever.
Baby Boy

4/10/21 Baby Boy went to his forever home today. This sweet little 4.5-pound fellow had several homes in his life due to no fault of his own. United Yorkie Rescue was determined to find him his perfect and final forever home. Today that happened. This guy is a tiny little nugget who is very sweet and loving. He loves being with his human more than anything else. When Baby Boy came to us, he saw the vet right away. He had very dry and flaky skin which was irritated. His skin was treated with special shampoo and antibiotics. The antibiotics were also for his ear infections. He got the dental he desperately needed and lost a lot of his teeth, all because of previous neglect. Finally, Baby Boy was ready for his forever home. Today he got that wonderful forever home. His forever mom and dad are home all the time and ready to give him lots of love and attention. He has a fur brother and sister just about his size and age. Baby Boy loves his forever family. He is the happiest little guy on the block.

I love my new forever mommy and my new forever home.
Baxter

3/28/21 Baxter the adorable little Morkie was adopted today. Baxter was the only dog in his former home and well loved. Then came the time when his former owners could no longer care for him. When his first family could no longer care for him, he was adopted by a wonderful person who didn't want Baxter to go to the shelter. Unfortunately, Baxter didn't like the younger dogs in his new home. He didn't want to play with them or even be their friend. When they came near him, he let them know that he didn't want to have anything to do with them. Baxter's new mommy knew her home was not the right home for Baxter. His mommy knew that United Yorkie Rescue would find him a better home. And today that happened. It took a while before Baxter was ready for adoption. He had several Urinalyses because of UYRs and crystals in his urine. But finally, the last one showed no crystals and no more UTIs. He was, at last, ready for his new home. His new mom waited a long time for Baxter to be ready to become her pup. Baxter will be the only pup in his new home and that makes him very happy. He has a stay-at-home mom, a fenced yard, and lots of toys to play with. He will get to go on lots of walks and Baxter sure does love his walks. Baxter is ready for all the love and attention that will be coming to him only. Baxters life is going to be so happy and so wonderful. We know Baxter found his happily ever after. Hooray for Baxter.

I love my new mom and dad. They are the best ever.
Georgie

3/19/21 We are so happy. Georgie was adopted today. Georgie's former mom and dad knew that Georgie was no longer getting the attention from them he needed and he deserved. There was a new baby in the home and babies take up a lot of time. With their work schedule and the baby, Georgie was unhappy. His thoughtful mom and dad knew how much Georgie loves people and he needed a home where he would get the attention he so badly wanted. When Georgie first came to his foster home his parents saw right away that Georgie loved them and was not fond of the other dogs in the home. He only wanted to run around the backyard and chase the lizards and try to catch squirrels and birds. That was the most fun he had and so today Georgie went to his forever home, and they have everything he ever wanted. He has a stay-at-home mom and dad, a fenced backyard, and no other dogs to get the attention and love that he wants for himself. He was so happy that he ran all around the house and the backyard. If you could see this pup you would know his smile goes from ear to ear. Happy Tails Georgie. Your life is going to be so wonderful.
