My forever home is the best home ever.

9/21/21 Tiny little Riley was adopted today. Riley found himself in rescue when his owners work hours made him spend too much time alone in his crate. Riley was scared and sad when he arrived at his foster moms home. He didnt want foster mom to pick him up. He was very timid, scared of thunderstorms and loud noises. His foster mom wanted to see him come out of his shell and be a happy boy. Soon enough that happened, and Riley was ready for his forever home.

Riley went to his new home over the weekend. He rode nicely in the car with his new Yorkie brother and Yorkie sister. He now twirls with excitement when you say outside and show him a leash. He kisses your hand while you are leashing up his new siblings, stands perfectly still while you harness him up and then twirls his way out the door. It is his happy dance. His new sister has been trying so hard to get Riley to play with her. His foster parents are starting to see a glimmer of play. He has begun to bark joyfully when they run around together. His new parents are home with him all day, and Riley loves all that attention. Puppy love and puppy happiness are becoming a way of life for this sweet boy.

I love my new mommy and daddy. We will have so much fun together.


Sweet young Sassy was adopted today. Sweet Sassy was sadly surrendered by her owners when they could no longer care for her. Sassy is full of sass and full of life. She likes her walks and like all young dogs she loves to play. She is friendly and affectionate. Sassy loved her foster home. She played with her foster sister and brother all the time. Sassy loved the fenced yard and just had the best time playing and running. Today Sassy went to her forever home and she got exactly what she wanted and needed. A mom and dad who are home a lot. A big fur brother who is ready to play with her, and a nice big fenced yard to them to play in. Her new mom promised her cuddles and love and her foster dad is ready to take her on lots of walks and play with her and her fur brother. Sassy has already settled into her new home and deemed herself Princess Sassy. Sassy is going to have many years living her best life. Happy Tails to sweet sassy Sassy.

Ayla and CocoPuff and their wonderful new family. Happy together forever
Ayla (and CocoPuff)

9/7/21 Ayla and her best buddy CocoPuff were adopted today. Little Ayla and her brother CocoPuff found themselves in the shelter when their mom, who had them since they were puppies, had a very bad stroke. Their mom's daughter was unable to keep them, so she brought them to the shelter in hopes the shelter would find them a home where they could stay together for the rest of their years. Ayla's brother CocoPuff is a Yorkie and in order to keep them together the shelter asked if we would take them both. We would never consider splitting up two dogs so attached to each other, and that is how a little Doxie named Ayla became a Yorkie Rescue dog. Ayla is an older girl who is hearing and vision impaired, but she is the sweetest girl ever. Their foster mom wasn't sure who would want to adopte these two seniors. Then an angel appeared and said I already love them and want to adopt them and love them for the rest of their lives. Ayla and CocoPuff now have the most perfect home and the most perfect mom and will have the most perfect happily ever after any two dogs could ever want. We are so happy for them. Happy Tails Ayla and CocoPuff.

CocoPuff (and Ayla)

9/7/21 CocoPuff and his best friend Ayla were adopted today. Little CocoPuff and his sister Ayla found themselves in the shelter when their mom​,​ who had them since they were puppies​,​ had a very bad stroke. Their mom's daughter was unable to keep them, so she brought them to the shelter in hopes the shelter would find them a home where they could stay together for the rest of their years. Ayla's brother CocoPuff is a Yorkie but his sister Ayla is a Doxy Mix and they love each other very much. In order to keep them together the shelter asked if we would take them both. We would never consider splitting up two dogs so attached to each other, and that is how CocoPuff's little sister, a little Doxie named Ayla, became a Yorkie Rescue dog. CocoPuff and Ayla are both senior dogs. Even though they are the sweetest dogs their foster mom wasn't sure who would want t​o adopte t​hese two older pups. Then an angel appeared and said I already love them and want to ​adopt them and love them for the rest of their lives. CocoPuff and Ayla now have the most perfect home and the most perfect mom and will have the most perfect happily ever after any two dogs could ever want. We are so happy for them. ​Happy Tails CocoPuff and Ayla.

Brooklyn has a new home

8/25/21 This little nugget came into rescue knocking on death's door and left United Yorkie Rescue full of life and love! She was every bit a fun loving puppy that required a home with children, a fur sibling and parents to love and afford a lifetime of care for this Yorkie Diva! She got that and more! I miss my little back warmer at night, but I'm so blessed by the amazing family that will see her future is full of everything that a princess needs. Happy Life my little Brooks...foster mom loves you baby girl!

Owner decided to rehome herself. Never came into rescue

Teeny Tiny Chase was found alone wandering the streets. Imagine a little 5 pound Yorkie on the streets alone, scared, and hungry. Luckily Chase was found by a good samaritan and taken to the shelter. The shelter knew that such a small dog did not belong there. As soon as his stray hold was up, and because no one came for him, Chase became a United Yorkie Rescue pup.

Chase has been adopted - hooray! He lovews his new home and his mew mom. He started playing with toys as soonm as he got inside his new home. He is going to have everything he wants for the rest of his life - most of all a lot of love.

Precious and new mom

08/10/2021 Precious's new Mom, Dad, Fur-Brother & Fur-Sister were over the moon excited for Precious to join their family this week. They are an amazing loving and very active family that loves to go for long walks, camping trips and lots of play time at home and local parks. It was not easy to find a family that could match or at least keep up with Precious's activity level and extreme love of people, dogs, and life.... But we found them!!

Although her foster family deeply misses her sweetness and fun loving energy, they could not be happier for her to start her new life. Thanks to United Yorkie Rescue and her adopting family, this sweet little girl will never have to worry about being dumped at a shelter in the middle of health crisis again. She will be loved, cared for, and cherished for the rest of her life.

We are the perfect family.

8/10/21 Angel the angel was adopted today. Angel was turned into the shelter when her owner died. It was a sad day for this sweet senior. One day she had a home and the next day she didn't. Not only did she not have her mom and a home, but she was in a strange, noisy place that wasn't anywhere near as nice as her old home. Everything was different and none of it felt good. Angel didn't belong in a shelter and the staff knew it. After two days United Yorkie Rescue was asked if we would take this girl and help her find her final and last, forever home. Angel became a United Yorkie Rescue girl. It didn't take her foster parents long to know that Angel was exactly the right name for her. She got along with everyone, cats, dogs, kids, grown ups. There wasn't anyone she didn't like. She was sweet and well behaved. Her foster mom and dad found out that she loved the car ride especially if it meant she was getting a Pupsicle. All Angel needed was her forever home and today that is exactly what she got. The best home she could possibly want for the rest of her days. She has a wonderful forever stay-at-home mom and dad and the most perfect home. Angel will want for nothing ever again. Angel truly found her heaven on earth. Happy Tails little one.

I love my new daddy.

8/6/21 Rawling was adopted today by a wonderful family. Back in February Rawling came to United Yorkie Rescue as an almost blind, vision impaired little guy​,​ with cataracts in both eyes. He ​wasn't​ even 5 years old and UYR was not going to let him go through a lifetime of being blind if we could help it. On February 22, 2021 Rawling had his eye surgery. The eye surgeon told us she could only fix his left eye ​since​ his right one was not repairable, and that is what was done.

Rawling went through several months of multiple eye drops and rechecks with the eye surgeon. Finally on August 5th, almost 6 months after he became a United Yorkie Rescue dog, Rawling​, now a dog who could see the world,​ was ready for adoption and to start the next part of his life. Today he did​ just that​. He has a wonderful new mom and dad, a human sister, and even fur siblings to play with in his nice fenced backyard.

Rawling will be missed by his foster mom, but she kn​ows​ this little guy will have a great life. We are so happy for Rawling as he begins the next adventure in his life. Happy Tails, sweet boy. So many more adventures still to come for you.

Look how happy we are. My new mom loves me so much
Lucky Florida Boy

7/28/21 Lucky was so lucky to be adopted by his wonderful new mom today. Lucky is such a sweet, beautiful Silky Terrier/Yorkie mix. He was surrendered to another rescue by his owner because she could no longer care for his special needs. Lucky was blind but he did great. Blindness didn't stop Lucky from doing anything and everything he wanted to do.

The vet Lucky saw said he had a mature cataract in his eye. He was not sure about the other eye. That eye also has a cataract but thought it may have been an immature one. For a 7 year old dog we owed it to Lucky to see if surgery could restore his sight in at least one eye.

At his eye exam we were told that the vision in one of Lucky's eyes could be surgically repaired and his vision restored. In February Lucky had his surgery and the world or sight was given to Lucky. It took months of eye drops and vet rechecks for the surgery to heal. All the while his real personality came out. Lucky became a happy, playful, loving little fellow. He loved the attention of his foster parents. His foster mom knew he needed a home where he would get lots of attention and not have to share what he wanted to be his alone.

Today Lucky got his wish. He has a wonderful new forever home with a mom that will be all his. He will get to go on lots of walks and have lots of toys to play with. He will get trips to her community dog park to play with other dogs, but then he gets to go home and has his mom all to himself. Lucky was the right name for this guy. From being blind to being able to see, from sharing his mom' love to having it all to himself. Lucky, your luck just got even better. Happy Tails little guy.

I love my new family. I am the happiest fellow ever

7/20/21 Milo was adopted today. Somehow Milo, this young pup of only 3 years, ended up in the noisy shelter full of big, loud dogs. It is no wonder he was so scared his tail was tucked so far under his body you would think he didn't have a tail at all, and he growled at the shelter worker. The staff knew he needed to be away from all the noise and commotion and Milo was given residence in the office of the shelter's Rescue Coordinator. This very shy fellow was much happier there and it wasn't too long before he was sitting on her lap, wagging his tail, and giving her kisses.

In his three short years of life, Milo has already been in four different homes, not due to any fault of his. It is no wonder then, when United Yorkie Rescue's angel came to get Milo from the shelter, saw he was very scared, his tail was tucked, he eyes wide, and he didn't approach her. He no longer could trust people. His rescue angel sat down on the ground at Milo's level and held out a treat. Milo approached, slowly took the treat, and the next thing you know he was curled up in her lap. He loved his foster home and was very happy there. Still we knew he had one more home in his life and that would be his forever home. Today that happened.

Milo got the very best home that he could ever want or want. He has a fur sister he already loves. He has a wonderful fenced yard to run around in with his new sister. He will have lots of toys and treats. Best of all he has a mom and dad who is home a lot of the time to be with him, which he loves more than anything. We are so happy for Milo and we know he will have the happiest life ever.

I have a great new mom. I love her a lot

7/19/21 Prada has found her Furever home, which comes with a big sister Shitzu named Bree and a little bird named Fuzzy. She and Bree are already adjusting quite nicely. She is not sure yet about Fuzzy but they will figure it out! Prada came to us as a case of neglect and hadn't seen a vet in 6 years. Her foster Mom says that now that she is all fixed up and feeling great, she seems to get younger every day! Her new mom is retired and has all the time in the world to spoil her and is looking forward, down the road, to some long road trips with Prada. Prada loves riding in the car so that will be a happy time for her! Happy Tails Prada, you have the most wonderful forever home.

I love my new mom and dad.

7/14/21 Little Maddie has had an interesting life to be so very young. Her previous owners who loved her very much found her on Craigslist when she was only 5 months old. They brought her into their loving home. Maddie was the only little resident dog in the home for several months, and then two other dogs came along, and Maddie definitely decided that she liked being the only ​p​rincess in the home. Her surrendering parents worked very hard with Maddie to be a part of the doggie pack, but she continued to let them know she really wanted to be the only dog in her home.

Maddie was the only dog in her foster home and was as happy as could be. Her foster mom knew that Maddie's forever home had to ​be ​one in which she was the only dog. Today that is exactly the home she got. Maddie has a stay at home mom and dad. She will get to go on long walks, have lots of play time, and more than anything she will get all the love and attention that her little heart desires. ​We are so happy for little Maddie. Have a wonderful life sweet girl.

I love my new mom and dad and they love me too.

7/9/21 Little puppy Buttons was roaming the street with a prolapsed rectum and worms. He was rushed to the shelter where he had immediate surgery to fix the prolapse and get neutered at the same time. That was a lot for a 3 month old small puppy to go through after roaming the streets for no telling how long. After the surgery Buttons was given medication to get rid of the worms and to help the healing of the repair to his rectum. The shelter didn't wait even a day to know that a puppy that young does not belong in the shelter. They contacted United Yorkie Rescue asking if we would take the puppy into our rescue. YES!! There was only one answer to that question, and that was yes!

Buttons did great in his foster home. Day by day he got better and better while his amazing puppy personality came out. His foster parents found him to be energetic, happy, funny, and loving. They knew he needed an active family, someone who would be home with him because he loves people that much, a friend to play with, and a house with enough safe places to run around in, inside and out.

Today Buttons got that perfect home and family. He has a stay at home mom and a dad who works from home sometimes too. He has a young fur friend to play with as well as two legged friends for more fun and games. They are ready to take care of Buttons for his whole long life. Buttons the puppy will never find himself, alone, and sick, and roaming the streets ever again. Buttons, your foster mom and dad and foster fur brother will miss you a lot, but we are so happy for you and your forever happily ever after.

Biggie Smalls

6/12/21 Today Biggie Smalls found his forever home with a wonderful couple and a fur sibling :-). Congrats Biggie!!! Biggie Smalls was just so comfortable on his way to his "furever"! It was going to take someone very special and "Yorkie savvy" to adopt this baby, and my prayers were answered! All 3lbs of this little nugget could be a Tasmania devil when first approached, but this was easy for his new momma and dad. He even is enjoying his new fursibling Bob. I'm so going to miss your snuggles and sweet kisses. Happy furever my precious baby boy!!
