Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament

    UPDATED BIO 08/05/2017: In the eyes of many, Zouri would be considered a special needs doggie. But to United Yorkie Rescue and her foster mom, Zouri is just the biggest sweetheart with the biggest heart and soul - ever. Why, you ask? Little Zouri sustained a spinal injury that is still a mystery and may always be a mystery as to what actually happened to her. This spinal injury left Zouri completely paralyzed in her back legs, and also affected nerves that control her bladder and other bowel function. Zouri was surrendered to United Yorkie Rescue by the person who saved this little girl from the streets. Before being rescued by this ... (Read More)kind lady, Sweet Zouri was left on her own and the only way she knew to get around was to drag her paralyzed back legs behind her. As a result, she sustained many bloody wounds on her back legs - so very sad. Since arriving at her foster home two weeks ago, Zouri has been seen by a general practice vet and a veterinarian neurosurgeon. Through extensive testing, it was discovered that Zouri has no feeling in her back legs as a result of the nerve damage, which also means she feels no pain. This news means she will never be able to walk on her back legs again. Zouri also needs human assistance to empty her bladder and bowels - she is incontinent as a result of her injury. Emptying her bladder is a simple procedure that a vet can teach her new owner(s) how to perform, and this needs to be done at least 3 times daily. The news from the neurosurgeon was not what UYR and Zouri's foster mom wanted to hear, but there is hope at the end of Zouri's story '| some GREAT NEWS followed. Zouri received an incredible gift from some wonderful donors. She received a set of wheels! So even though Zouri can't walk or run on all 4 legs, she can now get around just fine with her doggie cart. She is still learning to use her wheels to navigate around corners and furniture, but she is picking it up very quickly. Zouri has the best disposition and personality and is full of love and kisses. She sleeps in her foster mom's room in a basket next to the bed and sleeps soundly all night long. Bath time is not a problem; she actually enjoys the blow dryer and loves to be dressed for bed. Now a few words from Zouri herself: Hey! It's me - Zouri! I have a brand new set of wheels! Today I got to go outside to try them out. It was AWESOME! My foster mom says I will be running around the back yard with my new wheels in no time. I can't wait! Oh, how I have missed feeling the wind in my hair before my accident. Now for a few things that are a little embarrassing. I sometimes tinkle on myself, but my foster mom helps me and doesn't make me wear a diaper all the time. When I go #2 in my diaper, I let her know really fast that it needs to come off! She is learning my body language and it is getting easier for both of us. Oh, and I do not like to be in a crate! I will let you know that really fast if you put me in one. I love to be held and cuddled, but that isn't really embarrassing. Yes, I am a little more needy than other dogs, but I am very appreciative for all the help I get. If you think you would like to become my new family, please let my foster mom know! I really need to have a stay-at-home mom or dad or both, so that they can tend to my needs during the day. If I could have a fur-brother or sister, that would be wonderful since I would like to have a buddy to play with. I love being held and cuddling with my humans - a lot. Don't be sorry for me cuz I'm a happy girl, especially now that I have my new cart! Here's a link to Zouri walking in her new wheels for the first time: Initial bio 7-23-17 Zouri is our little 4 year old, 8 pound adorable Yorkie Pup. This sweet baby has faced some hard times and may be facing more. Little Zouri is being fostered in Mobile, AL. Meet Zouri. Here is her sad story. One day this person was driving home and just before pulling onto her road she happened to see this little pup. She picked her up and began her search for her owner. She knocked on several doors trying to find the owner and when she did they told her that Zouri had been dropped off at their house because the previous owner knew they had a yorkie and they may be able to take care of another one. It seems this little girl, they named Zouri, was hit by a car and now can't use her back legs. She either has severe nerve damage or she may be paralyzed. In spite of all this Zouri is so super sweet and so loving. She needs to be taken to the vet right away and get checked out. She may be able to be 'fixed' or she may need a wheelchair. She has sores all over her back end from dragging herself on the pavement and ground!!! Zouri will be taken to the vet immediately and we will know so much more about her condition and what her future will hold for her. We are hoping for good news, but no matter what we learn, Zouri will be (Less)

Yorkie Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Email Pepper is one of two dogs we were trying/hoping to place in a nice home together for their elderly owner so she can have peace. That said, since living in a foster home, we think the dogs can go to separate homes without any issues. Pepper is a 14 pound schnauzer mix. We are told that Pepper looks like a Yorkie blend. We can't be sure her breed, but she is cute, as you see, and will not grow larger. She's 2 1/2 years old, house trained, and a sweet little dog to add to most any home. She has not been around small kids, so we would prefer she go to a home with older kids in the home. We would prefer she have ... (Read More)another companion animal in the home, for her owners peace of mind. Se has lived with a medium size dog and two cats. Application, vet reference, and a rehoming fee. We require a home visit or bring the dog to you. Thank you for your consideration. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Yorkie in Alabama
    Yorkie Dogs can make good pets in Alabama if they match your IifestyIe. The Yorkshire Terrier is a cute, spunky little dog with a true Terrier temperament. Yorkies can be dog aggressive and wary of strangers. Yorkshire Terriers are loving and devoted to their people and do fine with children who respect them. Yorkies respond well to firm, consistent obedience training but may require patience when housebreaking. They do fine in an apartment but need to play and be taken on a daily walk.

lnteresting Yorkie Trivia Low-Cost Alabama Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Yorkies were bred to hunt rats in the mines of north England. Yorkies were probably developed by Scotsmen working in Yorkshire, England. Yorkies used to be much larger but have gradually been bred down to become a miniature breed. Yorkies have been popular ladies' lap dogs for many years.
