Animal ID: 17-226Holly (female)

Yorkie    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Health: Spayed 

    This sweet girl is Holly. She is estimated to be 8 years old and weighs 7.3 pounds. Holly is being fostered in Leesburg, FL. Holly needs home for the holidays. Updated bio 12/05/2017: Hello, my name is Holly. My foster mom thought that would be a great name for a little girl who needs a home for the HOLLYdays. Today I have nothing but good news to share. First, I am not in the shelter anymore. I am now in a nice home with a few other dogs. I have a nice soft doggie bed and plenty of good food to eat. No cold, hard cement floor for me anymore. Thank Goodness. On my first day out of the shelter, I spent the day at the doggie hospital. First ... (Read More)the nice doctor said I am not 10 years old like the shelter estimated, but I am closer to 8 years old. I am very healthy, and my heart and lungs are perfect and not one thing is wrong with me. After the nice doctor told me how perfect I am, another very nice vet person shaved off all my stinky matted hair. There were so many mats and tangles no one could brush it. And I know I smelled really bad too, so now I smell better and my foster mommy said when my hair grows back in I will be beautiful. That awful thing that was growing over my eye didn't affect my eye or vision at all and now it's gone. The doctor took it off and put in a few stitches. Soon it will heal and you'll never know it was there. They told my foster mom it was a benign growth, and in no time I will be even more perfect. I got my teeth cleaned, too; my breath is so nice and fresh and my teeth are shiny white. Oh. I almost forgot this. I got this thing called a spay, so that I will never have puppies. During the spay surgery, the doctor found a little thing called a mammary tumor and now that is gone, too. I am a little tired today after all that I went through yesterday, but in a few days I am going to feel much better. In fact, I bet I will feel so good again I will be just like a puppy. My stiches will be ready to come out in about 2 weeks and then I will be ready for my forever home - just in time for the HOLLYdays! Foster mom tells me that I am a great dog. I ride in the car very nicely. I do pull a little bit on the leash on walks, so I am not so good at leash walking - but I promise to get better each day. I'm a good eater and sleeper and my foster mom thinks I am house-trained too. She seems really happy about that. I like other dogs and I like doggie toys and I like to play. So far my foster mom said she can't find one single thing about me that's not good. And now that I'm all fixed up, I'm just about perfect. Maybe you would like me to be your best HOLLYday present ever. Whatever HOLLYday you celebrate I can celebrate with you and be your very special gift. And one more thing, if you would like to contribute a little to help the wonderful people at United Yorkie Rescue who got me out of that awful shelter and paid for all my care, we would all be very, very grateful. Happy HOLLYdays, Everyone. Please remember me - HOLLY -%0Cand give me a home for the HOLLYdays. Initial Bio 12-3-17 Say hello to Holly. She was found on the streets all matted and dirty. Worse than being homeless, she has a horrible mass on her left eyelid with scabbing and a bloody discharge. The shelter took her in and clipped her hair on her face and cleaned around her eye. They gave her antibiotics and pain medication. This adorable little girl needed rescue as soon as possible so that she can receive medical intervention for her eye. Holly sat in the shelter for 5 days waiting on someone to come and pick her up. No one came for this sweet princess, but United Yorkie Rescue could not let this little girlie stay in the shelter one day longer. We knew we must try to provide her with the medical care she so desperately needed. Holly was taken to her foster home, given a bath, some flea meds, and an inflatable e-color so she would leave her eye alone. Unfortunately it was Sunday, but Holly will be at the vet clinic first thing Monday morning. It is unknown what the prognosis for her eye will be, but whatever it is, United Yorkie Rescue is committed to making sure she is cared for. The shelter estimated her to be 10 years old, but in her foster home, she is running and jumping and exhibiting much more energy than a 10 year old dog ordinary does. Although her eye must be bothering her, she is still so sweet and loving. She is already following her foster mom all over the house. She is getting along fine with the other dogs, and has made herself already at home. She is so very happy to be out of the shelter and in a loving, safe and comfy home. Please come back very soon to find out what is in store for Holly after her vet visit. United Yorkie Rescue can use your help with Holly's medical costs. Please show Holly you care and let's make her have a holiday to remember. Perhaps, too, Holly will find a home for the holidays. Anything you can donate would be appreciated. UYR thanks you, and so does this sweet little girl w (Less)

His adoptive mom was unable to keep him due to her health issues. She said he is such a sweet and loving dog, but he was having some trouble in her house with his house-training. He needed to go out more often than she was able to take him outside to do his business. Tuffy's foster mom will be working with him to understand his issues and to help him get back on track with his house-training. Tuffy is a good little boy; he is very gentle and quiet and gets ... (Read More)along with all people and all dogs - and even kitty cats! He rides nicely in the car and walks well on his leash. Tuffy is in good health, but he will be taken to the vet for a doggie-well-check very soon. Tuffy's foster mom will need a little time to get to know him better, so stay tuned for more info. (Less)

Animal ID: 17-190Oscar & Missy (male)

Yorkie    Age: Young Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Oscar is an adorable 10-pound Yorkie boy who is only 4.5 years old. He is being fostered in Ocala, FL. Oscar and his sister Missy are very bonded and must be adopted together. UPDATED BIO 11/08/2017: Oscar and his sister Missy are back with their foster mom. It seems Missy's surgical repair of her ACL and luxating patella swelled up and the adopter was concerned they wouldn't be able to take appropriate care of her, so they surrendered Oscar and Missy back to United Yorkie Rescue. That's okay because in about a week or two Missy's vet said the swelling would go down and she would be just fine. Perhaps she jumped off the sofa or bed in her ... (Read More)adopter's home before the repair was fully healed. Missy goes back to the vet in a week for a recheck. Oscar is a great dog. He loves everyone and is very devoted to his people. He loves to ride in the car and take walks. Oscar is not totally house trained, but he is definitely doing better. He is smart and will learn, in fact, he is learning and his foster mom will continue to work with him. Oscar and Missy are great dogs. Once Missy's ACL repair is healed they will be ready for their forever family. Oscar and Missy would do best in a home with grown-ups only and no children. Please consider adopting these two sweet, adorable pups. They would be a wonderful addition to anyone wanting double the cuddles, double the kisses and even better, double the love. INITIAL BIO 09/23/2017: Oscar and his sister Missy, a bonded pair, recently arrived at their foster home. They are a delightful pair. They have already bonded with their foster mom and fur- brothers. They love to follow foster mom wherever she goes. Oscar and Missy have experienced their first golf cart ride to the dog park and enjoyed both the ride and the dog park. This dynamic duo loves to sleep in bed with their foster mom and fur- brothers. Oscar and Missy are learning to do their business outside - they are young and smart and are quick to learn. This bonded pair would make a wonderful addition to a loving family with at least one stay-at-home parent. (Less)

Sadly, when Missy arrived in her foster home, foster mom realized Missy was favoring her left hind leg. Foster mom immediately took Missy to the dogtor and was told that Missy needed bilateral luxating patella surgery, as well as teeth cleaning. This surgery is quite costly, however, United Yorkie Rescue does not want Missy to continue to be in pain so United Yorkie Rescue agreed to pay for this surgery so Missy will be pain-free. This bonded pair would make a wonderful addition to a loving family with at least one stay-at-home parent. (Less)

Animal ID: 17-196Luke (male)

Yorkie    Age: Senior

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    MEET LUKE! He is an adorable and active 10-1/2 year old 6.9 lb little fella. Luke is being fostered in Tallahassee, FL. UPDATED BIO 12/04/2017: Luke is doing just great in his foster home where he has been living for the past two months. He continues to be a very alert, active, calm and sweet little yorkie-poo boy. Luke has decided that he loves playing with squeaky toys and will fetch and 'almost' return them - but he is regaining the hang of it and will soon bring the toy all the way back. And drop it. Luke loves going outside in the puppy play-yard and is interested in the many squirrels that are always around and about - but he ... (Read More)doesn't bark at them. He is very interested in what they are doing and will watch them for a long time if permitted. Same with the lizards and frogs that abound in the forest - they totally interest and enthrall him. Luke has always been a sensitive little guy who prefers soft talking by his humans instead of loud talking. He rolls over for belly rubs anytime he is approached - so sweet and so trusting! He greets anyone who comes into his foster home and will get up on his hind legs and asks everyone to pick him up. He is definitely not an alpha dog, but is sweet as sugar and has a ton of love to give to his human(s). Luke sleeps all night long in his little bed on the floor in his foster parent's bedroom. His perfect home would be one with at least one stay-at-home parent so that he could give them lots of attention and affection during the day. Luke gets along with other dogs really well although he much prefers human companionship, but another dog in the home close to his size and age would be okay with Luke. Luke has always had sensitive skin issues and he is currently taking a medication (approximate cost $30/month) to help with his itchiness. He also gets medicated baths 1-2x a week to keep the itching under control. His new medication, along with a new medicated shampoo and RX food seem to have really lessened Luke's itchiness - hallelulah! His RX food is about the same price as any high-quality dog food and is formulated specifically for dogs with possible food and skin sensitivities. Luke has lots and lots of love to give to a forever family. Please don't turn away from Luke because of his allergies and age. You will not find a more loving, sweet and dedicated companion dog. NOTE: Due to Luke's small size and his past history with small children in his first home, he cannot be placed in a home with children under the age of 14. UPDATED BIO 11/06/2017: Luke continues to be a very active, but calm and cute little yorkie-poo boy. Luke is back in UYR after his adoptive dad recently passed away. Luke is a very smart little boy - he is almost 100% housetrained and also loves going outside in the fenced-in yard. He enjoys looking at all the squirrels in the forest trees and from time-to-time will be enthralled by either a lizard or a frog. He is not as happy outside at night-time since there are some night sounds that he is unaccustomed to, such as frogs croaking and alligators growling and rumbling in the lake. But he is getting used to hearing them since he's been in his foster home for about 5 weeks now, and is now very curious about the sounds. Luke is a sensitive little guy who prefers soft talking by his humans instead of loud talking. He rolls over for belly rubs anytime he is approached - so sweet and so trusting! Luke sleeps all night long in his bed in his human's bedroom. His perfect home would be one with at least one stay-at-home parent so that he could give them lots of attention and affection during the day. Luke gets along with other dogs really well although he much prefers human companionship, but another dog in the home close to his size and age would be fine with Luke. Luke has always had sensitive skin issues and he is currently taking a medication (approximate cost $25 monthly) to help with his itchiness. He also needs medicated baths 2-3x a week to keep the itching under control. He enjoys the cooling comfort of Tea Tree Oil or Aloe on his itchies when they pop up. Luke has lots and lots of love to give to a forever family. Could that be your's? NOTE: Due to Luke's small size and his past history with small children in his first home, he cannot be placed in a home with children under the age of 14. UPDATED BIO 10/05/017: Luke is an active but very calm and cute little yorkie boy. Luke was adopted from UYR 5 years ago, but sadly Luke's adoptive dad recently passed away and this little munchkin came back into UYR. Since Luke has been in his foster home, he has let his foster mom know that he is a smart boy! Even though Luke had a history of problems with house-training, he appears to be totally house-trained, and will even let foster mom know when he needs to go out by coming to her and patting her on the leg. Wow! He is a sensitive little guy who likes to hear inside voices from his people instead of loud talking. He rolls over for belly (Less)

Animal ID: 17-179Pookie (female)

Yorkie    Age: Young Adult

Health: Spayed, Seizures 

    [Read About Natural Seizure Care] Pretty Pookie is a 4 year old, 5 pound little Yorkie girl who is very medically needy at this time. She is being fostered in Lighthouse Point, FL. UPDATED BIO 11/14/2017: Sweet Precious Pookie has had a really rough and rocky road since she came into UYR. Although she came in with a history of periodic seizures, the seizure activity became very serious - very quickly - and for a short time, we did not know if Pookie had the strength and resilience to survive. However, she has surprised us all and is doing very well at this time. Through a series of very expensive testing, it was determined that Pookie has the most commonly diagnosed ... (Read More)form of non-infectious immune-mediated encephalitis called meningoencephalomyelitis, or more commonly referred to as GME. This primary inflammatory condition involves the brain, meninges and spinal cord. She is currently taking a variety of medications which could be reduced or eliminated in the days and weeks ahead if she continues to thrive and do well. The one medication that has recently been added to specifically treat the GME is an immune-suppressive drug called Azathioprine. So far, this new medication is working the way it is supposed to work and we are so very hopeful that her health continues to improve. Since starting Azathioprine, Pookie has been seizure-free and acting like a normal little puppy - and this is super great news!! Pookie is a happy puppy, following the pack, barking and running and this is certainly something to be celebrated. For now, Pookie is being closely monitored by her vet and specialist to ensure she continues to do well on her current medications. Once she is stable, Pookie will be ready to be adopted into a very special home. What would be the perfect very special home that Pookie needs? Here's a short list%BD'%BD|. - Pookie is considered a special-needs dog due to the diagnosis of GME. She will always be a special-needs dog and she may need to be monitored by, and in the constant care of, her veterinarian and consulting specialist. Her medications may need to be adjusted as needed for her continued care. - Because Pookie is immune-compromised, she will be unable to receive any further vaccinations. This means that Pookie should NOT be taken to dog parks, grooming salons or be exposed to any animals who are not immunized. - Due to Pookie's small size, she must go into an adults-only home - no exceptions. - Pookie may likely always be on medications which could cost approximately $100 or more per month. Her adoptive home must understand and agree to accept the costs of her medications to keep her healthy. If you feel that your home and heart is ready for Precious Pretty Princess Pookie, please contact her Foster Mom for any further information, or complete the adoption application by clicking the link below. Note: The testing involved in determining Pookie's diagnosis has been very expensive. UYR has spent over $5,000 on the testing/ER Visits/medications for this sweet girlie. If your heart leads you to donate to her medical expenses, every penny will be appreciated from the bottom of our hearts. If you cannot donate towards her medical expenses at this time, please say a little prayer that Pookie will continue to thrive and do well on her current course of treatment/medications. UPDATED BIO 09/13/2017: Pookie here. I came into UYR a very sick little puppy. I was suffering from an undisclosed seizure disorder and was barely able to stand up when I arrived at my foster home. I was just starting to feel a little bit better for a few days, then BAM! I started having seizures again and the medications that the nice doctors gave to me weren't working. I have been really sick and I have been suffering a whole lot while all the doctors are trying to figure out what is wrong with me. Since arriving in UYR, I have been hospitalized 3 times in the last 10 days because of the horrible seizures that I can't control. My foster mom & dad told me that it was painful and very scary for me - and also for them. I am currently taking 5 different medications every day, but so far they have not helped to control my seizures. Actually, my life has never been easy. See, my first family knew that my health was getting worse day-by-day and they never did anything to help me. They just decided to surrender me to UYR and they weren't honest about how sick I really was. It was heartbreaking for me to leave the only family I had known, but there was a young child in the home that really scared me all the time. It wasn't the child's fault, but my previous parents did nothing to keep me safe. I shook all the time and was terrified, too. Now that I'm here in my foster home, I love my foster mom and dad very much and I feel safe and loved here. They are very concerned about me and are always loving on me and hugging me and telling me that everything will be okay. But %BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD'%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD|.they said that the doctors need to (Less)

Animal ID: 17-171Shelly (female)

Yorkie    Age: Adult

Health: Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Shelly. She came into UYR from a hoarding situation. Shelly is 5 years old and weighs 11 lbs. She is being fostered in Ft. Myers, FL UPDATED BIO 11/29/2017: Hi, Shelley here - just wanted to let ya'll know that I am still doing great. My skin infection has healed nicely and my hair is growing in so much that it looks like I may be getting a haircut soon. Foster Mom says that I am a total love bug. I love people, I love doggies, I love food and I love a good squeaky toy. Oh, and I really love treats - yum yum!! Wait. Did I mention attention? Oh yeah, I love that, too. My perfect home would be one with tons of love. Another doggie ... (Read More)would be fun, too. Oh, wait. I love to play, too. I do pretty darn good with pee-pee pads. There have been a couple of accidents and a few of them may have potentially been me. See - there are other dogs here so I won't confess to anything since there is a lot of room for reasonable doubt. Haha! Would I like a fenced-in yard? Of course. It's not necessary but I certainly won't turn it down if you have one. I like sleeping with my people and many times I go to bed first to get the best spot. Don't worry, I will leave some room for my humans. Would I like a stay-at- home parent? Of course, but it's not necessary. Well, maybe it is unless I have another fur-friend with me since I don't think I would like being home all alone. It would just be too boring. I am way too social for that. If you have any questions about me you can email my foster mommy. Ok, that's all folks. I hope you are lucky enough to have me in your life, I will love you forever and ever and ever '|'|. UPDATED BIO 10/15/2017: Hi Everypuppy, it's me, Shelly. Everything is going pawsome for me in my foster home. I still have this silly skin infection and now another ear infection, but things are looking up and I am improving each day. Foster mom reminds me that my skin and ears were in such terrible condition when I came into UYR from a really bad hoarding situation. Life is sooooo much better now and I feel so loved and really like the attention that I get from my foster mom Foster mom also tells me every day that my forever family is out there somewhere, and that they are patiently waiting to find me. I am such a good girl with all the medicated baths that I have to get 3-4 times a week. But I really like the attention that I am getting because no one ever loved me like I'm loved now. I will take attention any way I can get it, haha. Anyway, when I have my baths, it is a one-pup-tub so the spotlight is on me and only me. I love that. I also really love a good squeaky toy after my bath and guess what? I can squeak all night if I want to - how cool is that? I know that there are a lot of people out there reading about me, and I want everyone to know how much I appreciate all of you. Please remember that I'm still looking for my forever-and-always home! Could that be your home? UPDATED BIO 08/12/2017: Shelley is proving to be is so sweet in spite of her previous home, which was a hoarder's home. At the vet, it was discovered that Shelley has ear infections, fleabite dermatitis and skin infections and hookworms, but she is still so happy to be free of her prior life. Her poor little body was just eaten up by flea bites, but she is on the mend and flea-free - hooray! Shelley's nails were so long that Foster Mom felt like she needed to ask her if they were acrylic or gels, lol! Foster Mom already loves her so much! Shelley will soon be ready for her forever home - could it be your's? INITIAL BIO 08/12/2017: Shelly came into UYR today from an horrendous hoarding situation . Please watch our website for pictures and updates very soon. PLEASE NOTE: UYR took in a total of 11 dogs today from this hoarding situation, including Shelly. None of these dogs received any routine veterinarian care and all will need to receive vaccinations, worming, microchips, dentals, fecals, HW testing and will be altered. Please help us help Shelly and the other precious yorkies taken in today by donating to their vetting expenses, which will be very high due to the number of dogs coming in today. No donation is too small. You can donate to any of these dogs by clicking on the Donation Button below. Thank you from Shelly and the other dogs, and especially from the folks at United Yorkie Rescue who participated in their rescue/transport and to the foster moms and dads who so eagerly stepped forward to foster these very needy little dogs.

Animal ID: 17-119Ava (female)

Yorkie Mix    Age: Young Adult

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Ava is 2.5 years old and weighs 9 pounds. She is a Yorkshire terrier/Brussels Griffon mix. Ava is being fostered in Orlando, FL. UPDATED BIO 12/06/2017: Hi, I'm Ava. Let me tell you about myself. I recently had a dental and now my teeth are shiny white; I had one retained baby tooth and that was pulled during the dental. I am on monthly heartworm prevention and Bravecto for flea/tick prevention. I always let my foster mom know when I have to go outside to do my business. Don't tell anyone, but I sometimes ask to go out just so I can chase lizards and squirrels, hee-hee! I love to play with my toys and with my fur-sister, Leia. When ... (Read More)I'm not playing, you can find me on my foster mom's lap, my favorite place to be. I love it when she holds me like a baby and talks to me. And I understand every word she says. Yes I do! When I first came to stay with my foster mom, I was a very sick little girl. I was so weak and anemic. The vet discovered that I had a certain type of anemia called Immune Mediated Hemolytic Anemia or IMHA. This is a condition where my white blood cells (the ones that fight the bad guys), started to attack my red blood cells before they could mature. The white cells thought the red cells were bad guys. This, of course, was not good for me. I had to have a blood transfusion that first week. Then I started taking Prednisone and Azathioprine (a chemotherapy drug). Gradually, I started to feel better and my energy and stamina returned. I am happy to say that all my blood counts have returned to normal and I have been off all medications for the past two months and I feel GREAT! Ok, now I will tell you what kind of furever home I need. If you feel your home would be perfect for me, click on the link below to complete/submit an adoption application. If you have questions, you can contact my foster mom at the email address below for more information. Here's what my perfect home would be: - It would be best if my new mom and/or dad are retired or work from home since I don't want to be left alone for long periods of time. - I can only be adopted into an adult-only home. Small children may pull on my ears or tail and accidentally hurt me. I would not like that and may get a little grumpy. - Because I have IMHA, I can no longer be vaccinated. It might cause me to relapse and I definitely don't want that. No vaccinations means that I can NOT go to dog parks, doggy daycare, the groomers or for walks in the neighborhood. - I MUST have a fenced yard. - I would love it if there is another small doggie companion in the home for me to play with. The only request is that the other dog must be fully vetted (vaccinations, including Bordetella, heartworm prevention, flea/ tick prevention, annual vet visit/ more as necessary) and always kept up-to-date. I am a great little girl, just ask my foster mom. Please consider me when you look for a new companion dog to love. I'm so worth it. I'll definitely love you right back. I'll be waiting for you.

Yorkie    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Baloo is an adorable 11 year old, 13 pound yorkie boy. Baloo wants to be your one and only animal. He is being fostered in Clearwater, FL. UPDATED BIO 10/31/2017: Avoid the Christmas rush and get yourself the best gift ever. I am Baloo - a very sweet, and adorable 11 year old yorkie. PLEASE NOTE!!!! I NEED AN ENCLOSED BACKYARD AND I ALSO NEED TO BE THE ONLY DOG IN THE HOME. Like a lot of humans, I have lived a difficult life and because of my age, and as a result of my past life's difficulties, I prefer to live a quiet mellow life now. I love to be petted and have my tummy rubbed and head scratched. I do enjoy sleeping in the bed and - ... (Read More)BONUS! - I am also house-trained. I would consider myself a low-maintenance kind of fellow; however, it does take me a little time to get acclimated to my new surroundings. My ideal forever home would be with an older retired person or couple where I will be the center of attention - and the center of their world. Yup, I'd really like that. Because I am a strong-willed character of sorts, it would be best for me to go into a home with someone with doggie experience, and especially experience with the Yorkshire Terrier breed. Come on folks! Spoil yourself a little bit and adopt the gift that keeps on giving - ME! We can chill and relax together and watch the world go by - that's a perfect day for me. Oh, and remember those belly rubs and head scratches, too! Bio 8-30-17 Hello, I am Baloo. I am 11 years old and weigh a lucky 13 pounds. Right now I am living in Clearwater, FL in my foster home. Here's what you should know about me. I generally like to keep to myself and mind my own business. I do enjoy time with my owner but other then that I am content with my toys. I am in very good health. Have been through advanced obedience training I have no dental issues which is rare for my age, but I have been very well taken care of. And guess what? I am house trained and a really good eater too. The perfect home would be a home with ABSOLUTELY no other pets or children. I like to have all the attention and love. I like a quiet environment and am looking for a stay at home person who likes the same. I do have a strong character so I need an owner who is familiar with dogs especially one with a snarky attitude a Yorkie can sometimes have because I will take over the house if you let me. You would have to rein me in a little and show me my boundaries. I really need a fenced/enclosed backyard to play in. I am not a dog park or neighborhood kind of dog. Don't be scared, I am friendly, loving, loyal, and obedient, and really pretty much maintenance free except for the required belly rub now and then. I look forward to meeting my new parent or parents. I will give you lots of kisses and love. Don't pass me by if you think you would like a special dog like me. BIO 07/07/2017: Here's a note from Baloo: Hello future Parents Please allow me to introduce myself. I am Baloo and I am a mature gentleman at 11 years old. Because I have been taken such good care of at my most recent vet visit, I was found to be in excellent health and cleared to go to my forever home. My ideal home would be a home much like myself - older and retired. Why? Because we can sit around and watch the world go by. I'm not a fan of a lot of excitement and I don't bark much. I really just love to walk around the back yard (preferably fenced). I love toys. I am almost like a puppy in that regard and I bring them to bed with me. So now you know about me, and that I'm a laid-back gentleman. Oh! Now this is impressive. I have been to Obedience School and I can do a few tricks. Pretty cool, huh? There's something else you need to know. I want to be your one and only animal. That way, you can devote all of your attention to me - that's the way I like it! Please ask my Foster Parents any questions if you are interested in adopting and loving me. (Less)

Animal ID: 17-007Yogi FL (male)

Yorkie    Age: Senior

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Yogi is 10 years old and weighs 9-1/2 lbs. He is being fostered in Zephyrhills, FL. UPDATED BIO 10-29-17 Yogi continues to thrive amazingly well in his foster home. He is such a gentleman and also a sweetheart. He shows his affection for his foster mom and dad by giving kisses and always desires to be around them. Yogi is well-adjusted and gets along with kids, cats and other dogs. Yogi loves to sit next to his foster parents or on their laps when they are sitting on the couch. When evening comes around and he's ready for bed, he will bark and head into his foster parents' bedroom and ask to be put on the bed. Yes, Yogi is ... (Read More)spoiled, but it is certainly well-deserved since he is such a good boy. Because of Yogi's congenital bone deformity in both his front legs, he does need help getting up and down from the couch and/or bed, but it certainly doesn't stop him from getting around or enjoying his walks. Because of his history with bladder stones, he does need to stay on his special diet to prevent him from developing future stones. Because of his special diet, he requires frequent potty breaks, but at the same time he's gets to enjoy outside time. Yogi sleeps throughout the night with no potty breaks. Yogi's perfect forever home would be one with a stay-at-home person or couple, or retirees that had a lot of time to spend with this sweet boy. Yogi loves being with his humans and has enjoyed being in a foster home where he hasn't been left alone for any long periods of time. Could that home be your's? UPDATED BIO 05/17/2017: Yogi continues to thrive in his foster home. He has now become more alert and energetic. He loves going for his walks, and Foster Mom and Dad are teaching him that he is not the leader, but the follower, lol! Yogi is a happy boy who has adjusted very well to his surroundings and to his foster parents who think he's just as sweet and loving as can be. Yogi does have some interesting qualities about him, which just give him such character. He was born with congenital bone deformities in both front legs. This causes his ankles to buckle up under him when he walks for long periods of time, but he has been building muscle and his ankles don't buckle as often as when he first arrived. When this happens, he will fall forward, but if he is on a walk, pulling up on his leash/harness seems to relieve the pressure on his ankles and it helps him to walk better. There is no pain involved, and since Yogi has always had this condition, he just pops right back up and moves forward with his walk. What a trooper he is! Yogi is a smart little fella; he is both house-trained and crate-trained. He travels well in the car and loves being with his foster mom and dad, whether he is sitting next to them or on their laps. He just loves his human companionship and also enjoys taking up space in your bed if you allow it! Yogi is a special little character who loves life and has managed to overcome any adversity he has faced. And he has done it with a delightful personality, joy in his heart and a happy attitude. He will bring a lot of love and companionship to a new family - could that be your's? UPDATED BIO 04/15/2017: Yogi continues to do great in his foster home. He is still waiting on his forever home -Yogi's perfect home would be with an empty-nester or retired couple who want a perfect gentleman who loves to sleep in bed with you and will bring much joy into your life. Yogi's seasonal allergies are being treated with Benadryl and his cough and tonsil inflammation have resolved - thank goodness. Although Yogi has a few challenges in his life, he is a trooper and loves being a beloved canine companion in his foster home. He is ready to spread his love even further to his forever family. This little fella has been patiently waiting for someone to show him some love and apply to adopt him as their very own little four-legged prince. He's a real treasure - don't let this special little man get away. He has brought so much love and happiness to his foster parents, and he is ready to do the same for his forever family. (Less)

Animal ID: 16-169Nemo FL (male)

Yorkie    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Nemo is an adorable 7 year old, 9.5 lb male yorkie who is being fostered in West Palm Beach. UPDATED BIO 11/16/2017: Nemo came into UYR from a local South Florida shelter 14 months ago; he was deemed unadoptable to the public based on his skin condition. You see, Nemo's former family did not take care of him at all, and not only was he missing most of his hair, his skin had turned black and thickened due to chronic skin infections that had gone unchecked, probably for most of his life. We thought he was just so cute and pathetic, we simply could not pass him up! Pathetic he was, as he was also so sick with kennel cough and skin ... (Read More)infection, he simply did not feel well enough the first 3 weeks in his foster home to be bothered to get up off the couch much, whether it was for meals or to greet his people. Fast forward a year '|.. and Nemo's personality has really emerged! Now, when his foster mom and dad come home, he gets so excited he looks like a little yorkie bucking bronco. It's so hard for him to contain his enthusiasm that his 4 legs simply cannot stay on the floor at the same time. So cute! Nemo looks and feels so much better. But, his skin infection is still not 100 % cleared. His current skin care routine involves getting bathed 2x a week with medicated shampoo. Nemo will go back to the doggie dermatologist in January to determine the next course of action. So, he is not currently available for adoption until after his dermatology check in January. Nemo also has a condition called Diabetes Insipidus. This is a fairly rare disorder that affects water metabolism, preventing his body from conserving water and releasing too much of it. This condition is characterized by increased urination, dilute urine (so-called insipid, or dull urine), and increased and excessive thirst/drinking. He is on a daily medication for this which helps; however, he still needs to be walked at least once in the morning and then in the evening to optimally empty his bladder. Foster mom and dad have put a pee-pee-pad down for him, which he does use, but he also does have accidents if he is not taken outside on schedule. Nemo likes to go for a walk in the morning, then he likes to snooze for hours afterwards. He is a pretty laid-back little nugget that doesn't bark much. He does love to play with his squeaky toys and will play for hours with his foster parents. He also likes to chew on bones, and that can keep him occupied for a long time as well. Nemo's perfect forever dream home would be one with a fenced yard. He gets along with nice, mellow dogs, but is reactive to high-strung barking dogs. He is also okay with older and laid-back cats, but can be reactive with high energy young cats. For more info on Nemo, please read his bio and contact his foster mom through the link below. NOTE: The specialized tests involved in diagnosing/treating Nemo has been expensive. UYR has spent over almost $2,500 on various diagnostic testing/medications/treatment for this sweet boy. If your heart leads you to donate to his medical expenses, every penny will be appreciated from the bottom of our heart. BIO 10/08/2017: Guess who had a birthday? Nemo did! Yep, he's been in UYR for a year now! Wow, can you believe that?! Most of that time he has not been available for adoption. Why you may ask? Well, Nemo came into UYR with serious skin issues which were initially diagnosed as an over-abundance of yeast, so we were treating that condition for many months. However, even though he had improved a bit, his skin was still irritated and red, so he went to a veterinarian dermatologist. The dermatologist discovered that Nemo had a bacterial skin infection, and put him on oral antibiotics as well as other medications. Medicated baths become a routine part of his care. After being on the medication for several months, Nemo went back for a re-check on October 3rd. The good news is that he finished with the oral antibiotics and doesn't need more. The bad news is that he still has a skin infection, and will need the medicated baths 2x per week until his recheck on January 3rd. He will remain in UYR foster care in the same loving home he has been in for the past year. Since Nemo has to be bathed so frequently, foster mom felt that he would be much more comfortable if he was shaved down as close as possible, especially since he has very thick hair. Not to fear, Nemo won't get cold as he lives in warm, sunny South Florida. Nemo has also put on some weight and is back up to 10 lbs, so he is on a doggie diet again.
