I have the best new family.

4/20/22 Sammy was adopted today!! Sammy's original mom got very sick and Sammy found out he needed a new home. He was sad, scared, and confused. Sammy then went to his new foster home and received all the care and love he could stand. Sammy loves toys and walks.

Now Sammy has found the BEST home. He is now going to be the center of his new family's attention. He will get all the loving, toys, and walks one little man can get! Happy Tails Sammy!

It's love from the minute I met my new mom and dad and they met me.

4/20/22 Bailey was adopted today. When Bailey's mom could no longer care for him because of a severe injury she sadly surrendered Bailey to United Yorkie Rescue. She knew Bailey, who is still a puppy, needed a home with someone who can care for him and love him forever. She trusted us to find Bailey that new home and today it happened. Bailey found the best mom and dad he could ever want. From the minute they saw him they knew it was love. Bailey was so happy too. He ran up to them and started to give them kisses and love. Bailey has a nice fenced yard to play in, but best of all he has a mommy and daddy all to himself to give him so much love and so much attention. They promised him friends to play with, lots of toys, lots of walks, food, treats, and to love him forever.

Just me and my new dad!

4/2/22 Brody was adopted today!! When Brody's original mom and dad's situation changed, a baby came and work hours increased, Brody was no longer getting the attention he loved and wanted. His people tried to give him what he needed, but they could see how sad Brody was. He was spending hours in his crate alone. Brody then came to United Yorkie Rescue where we gave him all the love and attention while we found him the absolute best forever home.

Now Brody has found the BEST home. He is now going to be the center of his new family's attention. He will get all the loving and treats one little man can get! Happy Tails Brody!

I am ready for the rest of my life.

3/29/22 Sweet Tori was adopted today. Tori came to United Yorkie Rescue anemic, with cherry eye in both eyes, a big mass on her back, flakes of dead skin on her lower back end, bad teeth, and not smelling very good at all. She needed medical care after not seeing a vet for 5 years. She needed to know someone loved her enough to take care of her medical and emotional needs, and to give her the spa day she so badly needed.

Tori's foster mom and dad made sure all those needs were met. She got so much love and got to know her vet very well. It took a while for Tori to be well enough for her surgery since she was anemic, but finally that day arrived. Tori had her eyes fixed, the mass removed, and her teeth taken care of. After she healed it was time for Tori to go to her forever home.

Today Tori went to her perfect forever home. She has a stay at home mom and dad. A sunny lanai to catch some warm rays, a nice big yard with a fenced area to run around in, and even another doggie friend about her size to hang out with. Tori will have a great life and her every care and every need will be taken care of for the rest of her life. Tori will be missed by her foster family, but we know she has a wonderful life ahead of her. We are so happy for Tori, she found her happily ever after

My new mommy loves me. I am so happy.

3/26/22 Cody was adopted today. Cody had such a sad story. He was found on the street and taken to the local shelter. It quickly became obvious to the shelter staff Cody lacked socialization. He nipped at the workers and just had a very hard time adjusting to his new life. Two other rescues were contacted and both declined to take Cody and take a chance on him. Finally​,​ UYR was contacted. One of our members went over to meet Cody, with treats and mostly with gentle kindness. Cody reacted to the gentle voice and quiet demeanor. But before we could take him our foster member went back a second time. This time Cody came over to him and they formed a bond. Cody became a United Yorkie Rescue dog.

In his foster home. Cody did well with the other 2 small dogs in the home. He attached himself right away to his foster mom. It was apparent she was his favorite person in the world. In the almost 2 months Cody was in his foster home he became a wonderful, loving boy who only needed kindness and patience and understanding. His foster parents knew exactly what he needed in his forever home. It was simple - he needed patience, understanding, kindness, and love. Today Cody found just that. He has two wonderful mommies who understand dogs with Cody's needs. They will be home most of the time to give Cody whatever he needs. He will be showered with everything he ever wanted and needed. They promised to take Cody everywhere dogs are allowed and to be his forever mommies for the rest of his life. There is nothing but happy days and a happy life ahead for Cody.

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

3/26/22 Chewy was adopted today. Chewy's former owner could no longer give Chewy the time and attention he needed. They know this sweet, affectionate, little lap dog needed a home where he could get those things his owner could no longer give him. Chewy's foster mom knew Chewy needed a home with a mom and dad who would be home to give Chewy all that he needed. Today he found that perfect forever home. He has the life he always wanted and a mom and dad who would be home with him most of the time . He even has a screened patio and a little fenced area to hang out in. He will be the only dog and the center of their life. We are so happy for Chewy. Happy life little guy.

My new mom and dad are great

3/26/22 Dave was adopted today. His former family had to work a lot and then some babies came and Dave was spending too long alone in the crate. His owners knew that was not right for a sweet, active dog who needed more attention and activity than they could give him. Dave's foster mom found that Dave got along with everyone, grown people, dogs, even kids. Knowing that it was important to find exactly the right family for Dave that is just what she did. Dave is one lucky dog. It was love at first sight when Dave met his new mom and dad, and they felt the same way. Dave immediately felt right at home in his new forever home.

He has a mom and dad and human brother who will be with him much of the time. He has a nice big fenced yard to run around in. He has toys, will get to go on fun trips, and will have the best time of his life. Life just got so wonderful for Dave. It is really his Happy Tails.

I am a lucky boy!

3/25/22 Lou was sad in his busy home with lots of young kids and big dog sibling. It was overwhelming for him and he lacked the one on one time he craved. Now Lou has his very own perfect person he can claim as his and his alone. He has a lifetime of happy tales (and tails) ahead of him!

I am so happy to get adopted!

3/20/22 Bandit was adopted!

Bandit found his forever home today! Bandit was surrendered when his previous owners had some significant life changes that kept them from looking after Bandit properly. Bandit’s new dad, James, found Bandit’s profile online and knew this was the pup for him.

James previously had a yorkie mix for 12 years who last year made his journey over the rainbow bridge. Gratefully, James has a lot of room left in his heart for a new buddy. While Bandit’s foster parents and brother will surely miss him, we are all very excited that Bandit and James are starting on a new adventure!

Happy Tales, Roxie!! Roxie was adopted on 3/6/2022!!!

Sadly, Roxie did not have the best start in life. Her first owner kept her in a crate for hours on end. This owner decided to place Roxie for sale on Craigslist because, sadly, he didnt care what happened to her as long as he walked away with some cash. Fortunately, an angel saw Roxie on Craigs List and purchased her to save her from potentially falling into the wrong hands. This angel had Roxie groomed as she was matted to the skin. She also had her spayed. After having Roxie for a few short months, this angel knew it was time for Roxie to find her last true forever home. That was when she contacted United Yorkie Rescue and we gladly took her into the UYR Family.

Roxie spent the last 3 months with her foster family. While there she was getting diagnosed and treated for orthopedic issues. Despite her challenges in life, Roxie is the sweetest girl who loves to be cuddled and being with her those that love her.

Today Roxie has been adopted to a wonderful couple that is committed to keeping up with her treatments and give her the proper care and exercise. When she first met her new loving family, her Daddy carried her around like the princess that she is. We know there will be many hugs and cuddles in her future! Congratulations Roxie and to her new family!

I have a new family and I love them already

2/27/22 Little Elmo was adopted today. This tiny little boy was found lost and wandering the streets. A Good Samaritan found him and brought him out of the cold and into the shelter. United Yorkie Rescue was called, and within 24 hours, took him from the shelter into his foster mom's warm and loving home. Elmo needed a lot of medical care. He had severe periodontal disease and bone loss in his jaw. He had a big area of hair loss on his back either from fleas or a yeast infection. It took a while, but Elmo received all the care he needed medically as well as the love he craved. Finally, Elmo was healed and ready for his forever home. Today that happened. Elmo has found his Furever home! He settled into his new home and into his Mommy and big sister's arms right away, and while his new Mommy knew he was "the one" Elmo seems to think the feeling was mutual. While we know nothing about the first 12 years of this itty bitty boy's life, we do know that he will be getting all the loving care and undivided attention that he most likely never received. He is adored and we are happy to know that he is getting the life he deserves. Congratulations Elmo!

I found my furever home!

2/26/22. Louie has been adopted!

Louie found his forever home today and it was worth the wait! Louie had much pain and suffering to deal with in his past, from a large tumor on his face, to badly infected teeth and needing to have them all removed. It was a long journey to recovery - and what a recovery he had made! He went from being able to walk less than 5 minutes outside, to being able to walk for miles at a time, and more importantly loving it. It took a couple of months for foster mom to see him wag his tail for the first time, and now he does it all the time.

Today, he was able to meet his new family that will give him all the love, attention, and support he will ever need. We are so happy for Louie and wish him the best in this second, and best chapter of his life yet!
