Yorkie Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Didi is available for foster or adoption. We are a foster-based rescue and always looking for fosters! Didi is currently fostered in Bradenton. Didi is a very small, 1-year-old 7 lb Australian terrier mix. She is small but mighty. She is very shy with people at first and will need some time to warm up to you, however once she does, she will be your shadow! She sleeps with her foster mom at night and likes to sleep on you. She has not yet played with toys, but she has gnawed on an antler and does share with other dogs. She is currently the smallest dog in the house and tends to follow the biguns around. She is not fearful of other dogs, and ... (Read More)will in true terrier nature hold her ground, but she is NOT aggressive in any way. She does play with the bigger dogs, and almost likes to tease them. She seems to be leash broken, and while she doesnt like the crate she goes in without protest. She seems to be a bit finicky regarding food and is eating canned at this time. Her foster mom isworking on commands, but she has a way to go. She is very sparkly and personable and will be a great walking companion. She will need training classes to help her bond a bit more with people as opposed to dogs. She seems to be a trooper in the way of terriers, not afraid of rain and has been spotted chasing lizards. She is a very sweet girl with tenacious terrier nature! Didi is spayed, up-to-date on vaccines and preventives, heartworm negative and microchipped. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-06-17-00069Bentley (male)

Yorkie    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    If you are interested in adopting one of our dogs please go to our website at www.floridayorkierescue.com and complete the online adoption application. Introducing Bentley - This sweet little boy is 1 1/2 years old and was born on 11/27/2015. He weighs approximately 6 lbs and is full of personality. His tail is un-docked (meaning he has a long tail). He is fully vetted, micro-chipped and has been neutered. He does have separation anxiety so we are looking for a new owner who is home during the day as we do not feel at this time he is a candidate for being left for hours on end. His last owner had to crate him for long hours and he ended ... (Read More)up messing in his crate. We feel if he needs to be left alone, an x-pen would be a better alternative. He would probably do well living with another canine buddy. He is not completely housebroken so is now wearing a belly band in the house. But when taken outside he will pee immediately. He is basically a very good boy, affectionate, full of energy and very playful. He gets along well with other small dogs but doesn't like large dogs. He enjoys car rides and his favorite place it sit in on your lap. We have just learned that Bentley was surrendered to a Humane Society twice which means that he has had at least three owners in his very young life. So sad. ADDITIONAL PHOTOS POSTED ON OUR WEBSITE.

Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Boomer was on here prior. Still have not found a perfect suitable home for him. Great all around house broken dog. Good with all animals. Does not bark unless stranger comes onto property or knocks on door. Good off a leash but need to get him use to area and home first. No known health issues. Had his rabies shot like 2 months ago. He sleeps on his bed and does not use a crate at all. He is not a chewer. Gets along with all animals and people. He likes attention but keeps to himself. He is an amazing dog. I am moving and also unable to work. I can't afford to care for him properly. I had him since 2008. He was born Feb 29th ... (Read More)2008. I just want someone to give him a good loving home. Someone who will treat him right and love him like I do. He eats Rachel rays food only due to sensitive stomach. Walmart and publix sells it. Text me at 863 279 9246. I'm moving June 18th. I need to find a home for him ASAP. Want someone who would allow me to visit occasionally and who will update me on his status. (Less)

Animal ID: 17-106Bentley FL (male)

Yorkie Mix    Age: Puppy

Personality: Very High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Bentley is a tiny Morkie puppy. He is a one year old, 4.4 lb bundle of fun. This little Morkie (Maltese/Yorkie mix) boy is being fostered in Boca Raton, FL. INITIAL BIO 05/28/2017: Meet Bentley. He is an adorable Morkie puppy. Bentley will turn one year old on June 2nd. Being such a young pup, he has all the energy a puppy has. Bentley had been left alone quite a bit in his last home since his former owner worked long hours. She knew that Bentley was not getting what he needed and realized the best thing for him was to find him a home that would better suit the needs of such a young dog. Bentley needs a home where there will be someone ... (Read More)home throughout much of the day to work on puppy manners and skills with him. He is not quite house trained but with someone home to take him out often he will get it soon enough. Being a young dog and full of energy, a fenced yard to run around in would be great. Bentley is up to date on all his vaccinations and he is neutered. Bentley will need a little time in his foster home while his foster parents to get to know him. They are not sure if he needs another puppy friend to play with or what else he may need in a perfect forever home. Please keep in mind that Bentley is a very young dog and will need someone who can give him at least a 15 year commitment. PLEASE NOTE: Because Bentley is such a small dog, he cannot be adopted into a home with children under the age of 14. (Less)

Animal ID: 17-103Georgie FL (male)

Yorkie Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Very High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Georgie is an energetic 1 year old Yorkie Mix. He is a thin 10.7 pounds. This adorable fellow is being fostered in St. Augustine, FL. UPDATED BIO 06/06/2017: Yeah!!! Schools out for the Summer!!! What a perfect time to adopt your new family member. Summer means lots of time to have the kids bond with their new best friend. Also, lots of time to take puppy classes and have quality time with the kids and their new puppy love. What a great way to socialize and enjoy the Summer instead of being in front of computer games. If this sounds like something you are looking for, then Georgie is the Little Man for you. Foster Mom is thinking ... (Read More)Georgie may actually be a bit younger than the estimated 12 months old . Georgie is full of life and also full - and we do mean full - of puppy energy. He is looking for his furever family that is active and he would just love to have two-legged siblings that would enjoy throwing a ball for him to retrieve and play, play, play. He will reward you by sitting on your lap and snuggling and love all over you forever. Georgie is the best sleeper and just loves to snuggle right against you all night and then wake you in the morning with gentle nudges and kisses - awwwwww! Georgie would also be great with a 4-legged sibling that is young and active. Seniors or inactive dogs would not be a good fit as Georgie just wants to play and play and play and may very well irritate an inactive dog by asking them to participate - over and over and over again, just like all puppies do! Georgie has recovered from his recent neuter and is such a healthy little guy. He is loving life, but would really love to find his furever family. If that might be you and your active family, please submit your adoption application for this great pup. INITIAL BIO 05/25/2017: Georgie is brand new in rescue, having arrived from a Florida animal shelter. He is named after the shelter's Ms. Georgianna who brought him in as a stray several weeks ago and has taken wonderful care of him ever since. The poor darling was not chipped, so Animal Control was unable to contact his owner. The Shelter did all they could to try to find his owner, even placing an ad in their local newspaper, but no one has come forward to claim this little darling. When United Yorkie Rescue was contacted about him, we were happy to bring Georgie into UYR. Since Georgie is a stray we have no history on him. He is estimated to be 12 months old. As of today, he is fully vetted with all of his vaccinations and labs. He had a perfect check up, a BIG 10, healthy as can be. The vets and whole staff just fell in love with this little man as his personality is just so outgoing and charming and he just fills the room with happiness. He will be neutered next week, and will be available for adoption soon thereafter. Georgie is super cute, very playful and full of sweet puppy kisses. He loves everyone and gets along great with other dogs. At 12 months old, he is still a puppy and the energy level is definitely full-bloom. Georgie's perfect home will be an active family that can keep up with his boundless energy. A fenced-in yard would be a big plus as this little guy loves to run and frolic. He will require a family that will get him out for walks to release that puppy energy and enjoy socializing. It would be great for him to have a young doggie companion to play with. NOTE: Because Georgie is a rambunctious puppy without a lot of Proper Puppy Manners training, a family with children over 8-10 years old would be considered. Don't let that cute puppy dog face fool you, it took many attempts to get just a couple of pictures as Georgie does not sit still. If you are interested in his little Prince, please contact Foster Mom for additional information and please get your application in for processing - we expect Prince Georgie will be adopted quickly!

Animal ID: 17-091Tuffy FL (male)

Yorkie    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Tuffy is about 10 years old and weighs 9.5 pounds. He is being fostered in The Villages, FL. UPDATED BIO 05/11/2017: Tuffy had his dental and lost the rest of his teeth. But not to worry, he still has a voracious appetite and loves his soft food. Tuffy is super sweet and when he's not sitting by his food bowl waiting on his next meal, he loves to cuddle and have his head and back scratched. Tuffy is enjoying the attention and love that he has missed for a while - this little boy appeared at the shelter looking very sad and very neglected. But that has been taken care of for sure! He has a happy personality in spite of what he has gone ... (Read More)through. Tuffy is a very smart little boy - he knows to ask to go outside to do his business and so far enjoys short walks on the leash. Once he feels a bit better by having two healthy meals every day, and has recuperated from his dental, Foster Dad feels Tuffy will want to go on much longer walks. Please don't turn away from Tuffy because of his age - he has a lot of years of love to give to his forever family. (Less)

Animal ID: 17-092Michelle FL (female)

Yorkie Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Michelle is an adorable 4 year old 7.5 lb Yorkie mix; she is being fostered in Dunedin, FL. UPDATED BIO 05/14/2017: Michelle has seen the vet for her well-dog check and had a great report. She is both heartworm & fecal-negative - hooray! She is scheduled for her dental on 05/17 so she will soon have pearly white teeth. Foster Mom & Dad have both fallen in love with this cutie-pie. Michelle is so grateful to feel safe and secure that she is giving lots of wonderful kisses. She also loves to be held and to sit on her human's lap. She bonds with her human almost immediately and doesn't want to be away from them for very long. Michelle is ... (Read More)pee-pee-pad trained, but may mistake a rug for a potty pad, so if you have any expensive rugs in your house, you may want to roll them up and put in the garage. Michelle has a very sweet disposition and is a happy little girlie. She has never seen a cat before, and as far as she is concerned, wouldn't mind never seeing one again. She barks at the resident cat and sometimes chases him, but has not tried to hurt him. She gets along okay with other dogs and tolerates their presence, but would prefer to be an only dog. She has never been around children, but can only be adopted into a home with children older than 12 years old due to her small size. Michelle likes to show everyone that she has a loud bark, and has a tendency to bark at unknown noises. Because of this, her perfect home would be a single-family home so that her bark won't disturb the neighbors. Her foster parents are working with her on proper puppy manners and teaching her when it's appropriate to bark - and when it's not. She has also let her foster parents know that she gets stressed when riding in a car (in a crate for safe travel). It is unknown how she would do on a long trip, so if you love to travel, it may be a good idea to take her on short trips prior to one long trip. She really wants to please her human, so she should learn quickly that travelling can be a grand adventure. If you are interested in this little princess, adoption applications are being taken now, but she will not be available for adoption until after she heals from her spay surgery around the first week of June. Michelle has some things to say - so here goes: 'Could I be your girl?' If you are looking for a cute, smart, sweet, loving - did I mention cute? - little girl who will love her humans to the moon and back, then look no further. My Foster Mom is just getting to know all of my adorable ways (I can't show them to her all at one time, you know?), but she says I'm going to be a great new family member to whoever is lucky enough to adopt me. Wait - did I say I was cute? Okay, my Foster Mom may be a little biased, but you have to admit, I am cute %BD%BD%BD'%BD%BD%BD| there, I said it again. If you find it in your heart to donate to Michelle's veterinarian expenses, please click on the Donate button and follow the directions. Michelle will send you a sweet thank you note. PLEASE NOTE! Because of Michelle's small size, she will need a home with no children under the age of 12. (Less)

Animal ID: 17-090Lena FL (female)

Yorkie    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Most Cats 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Lena! She is a beautiful 11 year old, 12.5 lb yorkshire terrier. She is being fostered in the Villages, FL. UPDATED IO 05/09/2017: Hi Everyone - Lena here - well, my real name is Apollina, but mostly everyone calls me Lena, or Leeney and sometimes even Beaney and Deaney - I'll answer to any of them. I was still a little confused when I arrived in my foster home, but my Foster Mom explained the situation to me and why I'm having this wonderful adventure. I know that my mom loved me so much that it made both of us sad because she had to be away from me for such long periods. She said that I deserved a family who could be home with me a ... (Read More)lot and make me their princess. I guess I'm okay with that. Especially the princess thing. I really, really love to run and jump - don't think I can't do those things because of my age now - that's just not right! Foster Mom says I'm a very happy little girl. I'm here with three other doggie housemates and we're all having a great time. Annie and I are almost the same size. Mattie is a little smaller than us, and then there's Bubba, who weighs a whopping 5 pounds soaking wet. Oh! And there's this bird in a cage that keeps calling the other girls by name (Annie...Mattie). What a hoot! I hope he learns my name so that I can hear him call me before I leave to go to my forever home. My Foster Dad takes Annie and me for nice walks and he says we're very well-behaved together. I'm not saying anything just yet, cuz you know I just got here, but I will whisper this to you%BD'%BD|I think Mattie is a problem child. There - I said it! I'm a good eater and a good sleeper and I don't cause any problems. I'm house-trained and leash-trained, too. Foster Mom explained that I won't be staying here forever, so I'm really anxious to see my new home and my new family. I promise I'll be good and give you lots and lots of love. My perfect family would be one that maybe had at least one stay-at-home person that would give me lots of attention. Not that I need it, but it sure is nice when I get it. I'll check back with everyone in a few days. See ya'! (Less)

Animal ID: 17-088Abby FL (female)

Yorkie    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Abby is only a puppy at 1 year old; she weighs 7.4 lbs. She is being fostered in Tampa, FL. UPDATED BIO 06/05/2017: Abby here - just wanna tell everybody that I moved this weekend! Yup, I'm not in Tampa anymore, I'm in Clearwater. Something else - if Wonder Woman had a dog, I would be that dog. Why??? Because when you meet me you will wonder how you ever did without me. I am lively and thanks to my former foster parents, I am also very healthy and strong. I weigh 7 pounds and even though I am young I am well-behaved, quiet and laid- back (well, until I see a lizard). I love the outdoors and I am also house-trained. I do have some ... (Read More)trust issues, but you go live in a shelter for a week, and you may have trust issues, too. Once I warm up to you, we will be best friends forever though. Let me tell you what my perfect home would be. I am sort of a Diva and I don't like to share my person with other dogs or cats, so please note: I CAN ONLY GO TO A HOME WHERE I AM THE ONLY DOG. I promise I have more than enough love for you. I am kinda shy, and young children and quick movements scare me. I would love a fenced-in backyard where I can play safely and just be a dog. I am not on a special diet. I sleep in the bed and while I can be crated, my foster parents let me have free run of the house. I am young at less then 2 years old, so I have a lot of years of love to give. But please remember - being a young puppy, I do require someone with a good amount of energy to keep up with me. I look forward to cuddling with you.... Abby NOTE: Due to Abby's small size, she can only go into an adult home - no children, please! UPDATED BIO 05/29/2017: Abby will be ready to go to her forever home once she recuperates from her spay surgery scheduled in several days. She is a happy puppy and full of love for her humans, especially her Foster Dad. She loves cuddles and enjoys being the center of attention, just like any other Princess. NOTE: Abby has made it clear that she wants to be the ONLY Princess in the home! Abby is now walking well on a leash and is also crate-trained. She is very friendly to anyone who gives her attention while on her walks. She has learned to sit, stay and come to a whistle - what a smart little girlie. Foster Mom is still working on her house-training skills, which Abby isn't learning as quickly as the sit/stay/come commands. It appears that she was not previously taught where it's appropriate to do her business and where it's not appropriate - so it's a work in progress. But she's a smart little puppy and with reinforcement, she will get it. A fenced-in yard would be a plus for Abby since she loves hunting lizards, smelling the dirt and leaves and just about everything associated with outdoors. Abby has let her Foster Parents know that she wants to be the only doggie in the home - she does not want to share any attention, cuddles or toys with another doggie. Abby's hair is growing in very nicely, and is very silky on top of her head, and she loves to be brushed. She doesn't fuss at all about changing her harness or putting bandanas on her neck, and will stand still and be very patient and compliant. She is also a great little traveler in the car. Overall, Abby is a very sweet and loving little puppy who is ready to share her love and puppy kisses with her new forever parents. UPDATED BIO 05/14/2017: Abby had a recent spa day and was a good little girlie, even though this could potentially be the first time she has ever seen a professional groomer. She was a little scared, but allowed the groomer to even out her coat since she had several patches of missing hair. Abby's coat is in poor condition, potentially because of stress in her previous home or a poor diet. Now that she is eating a healthy high-quality food, her hair should grown back in silky and beautiful. Abby is enjoying the companionship of the resident dog Pink Floyd. Along with him and her foster parents, they had a nice lunch at an outdoors restaurant, which gave her extra socialization with people and other dogs. Abby was very calm and quiet and rested by her foster parents during the meal. It appears that Abby has never been leash-trained, but she is learning to accept the harness & leash and will soon be walking like a regal princess on leash. Because Abby's former owners did not do any 'puppy training', she doesn't understand that it's not appropriate to do her business in the house. Foster Mom is working with her on house-training and it's a work in progress. She is a smart little girl and will soon catch on to the routine. Abby has a very sweet nature and gives kisses to her foster parents - it's almost as if she is thanking them for coming to her rescue and loving her. She wants to play with Pink Floyd, but so far he's not sure about this young, spunky little girlie. He is accepting of her and with her sweet nature, she is sure to win him over. She has most certainly won over her Foster Dad w (Less)

Animal ID: 17-059Jerry FL (male)

Yorkie    Age: Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Jerry is a little 8-year-old male Yorkie who only weighs 5.6 pounds. Jerry is being fostered in Orlando, FL. UPDATED BIO 05/25/2017: Jerry is a very sweet and easy-going little yorkie boy. He certainly did not deserve to be thrown into the street and left to fend for himself. But Jerry is a survivor and managed to withstand the shelter situation for a week while waiting for his family to come and get him. Of course, that didn't happen. Due to his poor over-all condition when picked up by animal control, he came down with pneumonia while in the shelter environment, but he managed to completely recover from that while in his ... (Read More)foster home. Jerry recently had his dental and due to the severe neglect of his teeth, he only has two teeth left. He also had the mass on his chest removed and the vet felt that there was no suspicion of malignancy so a biopsy wasn't done. Luxating patellas are common in yorkies, and at this time, it is not felt that surgery is needed. Jerry's previous labs and ultrasound indicated that his liver was enlarged and he was given a course of medications to remedy this. These elevated values were most likely caused by poor nutrition, combined with severe dental disease. Jerry's updated labs showed that his liver values are improving and we anticipate that they will soon be closer to normal. Jerry has overcome a lot since he came into UYR and shown us all that he is a courageous little boy who has a strong will to survive. In spite of being severely neglected in his previous life, he is a happy little boy who has also shown us that he is smart as well. Jerry's vet visits, ultrasound and labs/medications have been quite costly as he has traveled on his journey to better health and a happy, pain-free life. UYR is blessed to have many Angels who donate to our foster dogs' medical expenses so that we can continue to help little dogs like Jerry. If you can help out, even a little bit, with Jerry's medical bills, it would be so appreciated. You will receive a special 'thank you' from this sweet fella. UPDATED BIO 04-25-2017: Little Jerry has been in his foster home for a month now and is slowly coming around. It is so apparent and heartbreaking that this sweet little guy has endured so much neglect in his lifetime, followed by being dumped on the street like a piece of trash - no animal deserves this. Most people would think Jerry would be bitter and sad %BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD'%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD| but no, not Jerry - he is the sweetest little soul. He is one of the smartest and toughest little guys Foster Mom has ever seen. This precious fella still has a long road ahead of him though. He just recovered from pneumonia, which prevented him from having any surgery. He did have an ultrasound and additional labs. The ultrasound revealed that his liver is enlarged and the vet prescribed 4 different medications in the hopes his liver will recuperate and return to a normal size. In addition to the worrisome mass on his chest, Jerry also has severe dental disease and luxating patellas. Jerry's vet visits, ultrasound and labs/medications have been quite costly and he has just started on his journey to better health and a happy, pain-free life. UYR is blessed to have many Angels who donate to our foster dogs' medical expenses so that we can continue to help little dogs like Jerry. If you can help out, even a little bit, with Jerry's medical bills, it would be so appreciated. You will receive a special 'thank you' from this sweet fella. Initial Bio 3-25-17: Little Jerry was found on the streets and taken to the county shelter. He remained in the shelter for a week hoping his owners would come find him. They never came. Little Jerry had two families wanting to adopt this sweet boy, but when they saw his medical issues they decided they couldn't make him their forever dog. So Jerry became a United Yorkie Rescue dog today, where he will receive the care and medical attention he so badly needs. Jerry has a mass on his chest and occasionally limps on his rear legs. The shelter said he has luxating patellas which need to be looked at by a vet. He also had dental disease. It is the mass in his chest, however, that is most concerning. Jerry has a vet appointment on Monday and his vet is going to give him a thorough check up. We are expecting that the mass will have to be removed and hopefully it will not be found to be cancerous. He will also need his teeth taken care of and we expect that he will probably lose some teeth during the surgery. We are hoping his knees are not bad enough that they require patella surgery, but the vet will let us know more about that. Jerry's care will be costly, and we are asking our Angels to come through for him and donate to the sweet little boy's care. We will know more about Jerry and what he will have to go through to get healthy on Monday. Jerry won't be ready for adoption until he is medically ready to go. His surgeries will (Less)

Animal ID: 17-034Zeek (& Zack) FL (male)

Yorkie Mix    Age: Adult

Health: Neutered 

    Zeek is 6 years old and weighs 9.9 pounds. He is a yorkie mix and is being fostered in Ft. Myers, FL UPDATED BIO 05/17/2017: Hi, my name is Zeek and I am the sweetest boy I know! That's not just me saying that, my Foster Mom and Dad say that, too! I do have to be introduced to new fur friends slowly. But once we are friends we are friends for life. I enjoy playing with squeak toys and being with my people. I do need a fenced yard for the following reasons - #1. I don't really like the leash, I like running around in the yard with my brother Zack. If I have to walk on the leash, I will but I would rather not. #2. I really don't care ... (Read More)to meet new pups that are not part of my family - I'm a real family guy. I must be adopted with Zack because he is my best friend and that will never change. So if you're looking for perfection, I'm it! And Zack isn't too bad, either. We've been waiting a long time for you to find us%BD'%BD|%BD'%BD|%BD'%BD|.. UPDATED BIO 04/09/2017: Hi everpawdy, Zeek here. I am still patiently waiting for the right home for me and my brother Zack. I'm all ready to go to my forever home with him. Zack and I have had all our vaccinations and even had dentals. You see, Zack and I love each other very much and it wouldn't be possible for us to be apart. We have been together from the start and just couldn't ever bear to be separated. We are quite the pair. As you know already, I am the good one. Yep, Zack has to act like a fool sometimes and get us both in trouble. He sometimes gets crazy outside and then he gets me all worked up. I guess we just like being home. It's a scary world out there. But having me would far outweigh any antics Zack may try, lol. Two things I really like - 1) I do enjoy a squeaky toy, and 2) I like to watch movies with my person. Yep, I do. I do have what some consider a minor 'situation'. You see, I am really not very happy about other doggies - well, you know, other than my brother Zack. I don't really know why because I also get along just fine with my foster brothers and sister - it took a few days for us to get to know one another, but hey, that happens to everypuppy, right? I guess maybe I am afraid that others may try to hurt my person or Zack. Foster Mom thinks that we would be perfectly content to be the only two doggies in your home, you know, since we wouldn't want another dog to feel left-out of our brotherly bond. We are very kind-hearted like that. Zack and I are not big fans of the leash, either. And it's these two 'situations' that led Foster Mom to say that Zack and I will need a home that has a fenced-in yard. A nice one, please. Zack and I love to run around and play. This doesn't mean that you can never walk me on a leash, it will just take a lot of repetition and remindin' me of what you expect of me, but in a kind and gentle way. I am really a perfect gentleman. I am a good eater, I do my business where I'm supposed to, and I listen really well to my Foster Mom. I'm just very picky about meeting other dogs when I'm outside on the leash. Do you think you could still love me? I know I could love you - a lot. Could you give me and my brother another chance at a loving home? UPDATED BIO 03/07/2017: Hi, Zeek here! I know you have been curious about me, right? Thanks! I'm here in my foster home with my brother Zack. We have been together since the day we were born and need to stay together since Zack couldn't handle life without me. I really like the girl resident doggie here, but she doesn't seem too interested in me - bummer. I can't imagine why since I am such a sweetheart. I think Zack may have said something about me, hehe! You will be happy to know that I am house-trained and go out in the backyard or on a pee-pee pad. Well, every now and then there is an accident - but I think it is Zack that does it. I like to play with a toy or just hang out with the rest of the crew. Me and Zack are ready to go to our forever home. We have had all our vaccinations, a dental, a microchip and even got fixed. Neither of us knew we were broken! Oh well, you can complete an adoption application for us and maybe it will be your lucky day. It sure would be our's. Initial bio 2/12/17: Zeek and his brother Zack just arrived at their foster home. They have been together since birth and are very bonded to each other. Zeek and Zack will need to be adopted together. Zeek and his brother are possibly Shih Tzu/Yorkie mixes. Their foster mom is just getting to know them so we don't yet know a lot about them.. What we do know is they will need all their vetting and they will need to be neutered. Zeek is the more independent of the two, but when they are together they love to cuddle up together and kiss each other. As much as these boys love each other they also love their people. They do not do well on a leash yet, but they were great in the long car ride to their foster home. They slept together (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 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 ... (Read More)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. UPDATED BIO 03/15/2017: Yogi continues to do well since his recent bladder stone surgery where 5 stones were removed. He will need to continue on prescription food for the rest of his life to prevent stones from developing in the future. This also means no treats unless it is a handful of his special food. This RX food is no more expensive than a premium dog food. Yogi is currently being treated for Canine Tonsillitis, similar to tonsillitis in humans. The vet thinks this may be due to seasonal allergies and has prescribed Benadryl 2x a day as needed. This will be monitored for the next month to see if improvement is seen and the issue has resolved. Yogi came into UYR with a weakness in his front legs. After radiographs were taken, it has been determined that 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. 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 doesn't appear to be any 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? Since Yogi had multiple health challenges prior to arriving in UYR, his vetting expenses for getting him all fixed-up are now close to $2,000. Slowly, everything has been resolved with his health, but we are hoping that if you are reading Yogi's bio, you may want to donate towards his vet bills so that we can help other little doggies like Yogi in the future. Any amount is appreciated and you will get a special 'thank you' from the Yogster (Less)

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 6 year old, 9.5 lb male yorkie who is being fostered in West Palm Beach. Updated bio 5/25/17: Say hello again to Nemo, who is being fostered in West Palm Beach. Nemo was previously adopted, but unfortunately having 2 dogs overwhelmed his new mamma so she returned him. Nemo is super sweet, but does have some medical issues. He has Diabetes Insipidus, which causes him to drink too much water resulting in frequent urination. He is on medication for this, but he still needs to go out frequently. He also produces an overabundance of yeast, causing itching and hair loss. He is on an oral medication for this as well as baths ... (Read More)once a week or so. Nemo gets along with other animals, but would do best in a low-energy environment with a mellow dog. He does have leash reactivity/aggression when he meets other dogs, and he is receiving training for this but hasn't yet mastered it completely. Nemo knows several commands such as sit and stay, and he has learned 'leave it' and 'watch me'. Nemo's ideal home would be one with a fenced in yard, a person at home part of the day, and someone who has a bit of basic obedience under their belt. UPDATED BIO 04/17/2017: If you are looking for a tiny, high-strung, yappy, Yorkie watch dog that lets you know when the wind blows - keep scrolling - Nemo is not for you! On the other hand, if you are looking for a friendly, mellow, happy-go-lucky secure little dude who is content snoozing on the couch chewing a bone and can't be bothered to bark when his foster mommy and daddy come home, then please hit 'pause' and take a few minutes to read Nemo's bio so that you can appreciate how far this little fella has come. Nemo was rescued from a local shelter in dreadful condition, abandoned by his previous owners likely due to some very manageable medical conditions. You see, Nemo has a tendency to produce excess yeast, and this itchy condition causes his skin to thicken and his hair to fall out, resulting in the poor little fella being half-naked. Well, that was way back in September when he first came into UYR, but now with some anti-fungal medication and regular baths, Nemo is looking like a normal little adorable Yorkie. He still has some rough patches where his hair has not grown in all the way, but this does not stop him from being a handsome little dude. We can't all look perfect like Brad Pitt now, can we? Nemo is living in his foster home with several cats and other Yorkies and has adjusted to his animal house-mates very well. But, since he is pretty mellow, he has made it clear he doesn't approve of other animals who act out in a childish way, like growling excessively or running about like a lunatic. He would be best in a home as an only dog or with other animals that know how to behave themselves. Nemo has also learned very nice manners in his foster home, thanks to the determination and dedication of his foster mom. He has learned basic commands such as: sit, stay, wait, come, no. He patiently waits for his food until his name is called (which is always last) and he now knows to sit when his bowl is put down. He also knows he has to sit when getting a bone, and that his name must be called out before he can take it, although that can be a bit more challenging. Nemo is also made to sit when his leash is attached. Another command Nemo has learned is 'watch me'. He has a bit of a Napoleon complex when it comes to dogs he doesn't know on his walks, and dogs that bark at him, so by saying 'watch me' and giving him a treat, it helps keep his attention focused. (Click on the video at the end to see Nemo in action after learning the 'watch me' command.) It's obvious that Nemo was not a spoiled dog in his former home, so he never whines about anything, he is just happy he is in a loving home and getting regular meals. He sleeps in a little bed on the floor at night next to his people, even though his foster siblings sleep in the people bed. Nemo does have some minor medical issues, which are manageable. One is the excess yeast his body produces. He is on a hypoallergenic food to help combat this, as it is believed this is a result of food allergies. The cost of this food is comparable to any other premium dog food. Thankfully, he is a little dog, so the food lasts a long time and Nemo is not a fussy eater at all. He also has weekly medicated baths. He is a mellow guy, and while he doesn't love his baths, he tolerates them. Nemo takes two monthly medications - one is Apoquel, a medication which calms the itching from the excess yeast. Note: The monthly cost of the Apoquel is approximately $30. Nemo also has a condition called Diabetes Insipidus, more commonly referred to as 'water diabetes'. It is NOT related to sugar diabetes at all, and it is not life- threatening. However, his pituitary gland does not work properly, and it does not tell his brain he has had enough to drink, so he drinks excessively. For this condit (Less)

Animal ID: 16-040Rocky G FL (male)

Yorkie    Age: Senior

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Rocky is 12 years old and weighs 10 lbs. He is being fostered in Miami, FL. He is a very special little man. UPDATED BIO 03/07/2017: Hi everybody! It's me again, Rocky :) Not much new is happening. Life is pretty chill and I spend most of my day sleeping (it is one of my top 5 favorite things to do). Life is good and I don't have anything really to complain about. My sister is still pretty annoying, but I just tolerate her with a big sigh because she'll never change. Foster Mom did bring us a new dog recently. His name is Bob and he seems pretty cool. Mom really seems to like him, so he took some of my attention away when he got ... (Read More)here, but I'm a patient guy, so it was no biggie. If I could spend the rest of my life on a lap, though, I'd be the happiest dog ever. My eyes are still not perfect, but the drops and the coconut oil Mom uses works pretty well. Some really good news is that I am now able to close my eyes entirely. Mom caught me sleeping with my eyes closed this weekend and made a huge deal about it, she was so happy. So, for you dry eye guys out there, tell your families about this coconut oil thing. It has to be the pure virgin stuff, though. It works great on me. Well, you caught me in the middle of the day, so I gotta get back to my nap. Gotta be awake for when Mom comes home so I can try to sit on her lap all night. Hey, we all have jobs to do and that one's mine. Love, Rocky UPDATED BIO 01-27-2017: Hi Everybody! It's me, again, Rocky %BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD'%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%A0%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD'%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%BD%A0 I'm still doing great in my foster home - just chillin' and stuff. My favorite thing to do is sleep, preferably next to someone warm who doesn't like to get up very often. Unfortunately, my foster mom gets up all the time, but I'm patient and I wait for her to come back and then I snuggle back in. My eyes are pretty much the same; I have two bum eyes, but one is doing okay with all the meds, so hopefully if I do have to lose one in the future, I'll get to keep the good one. The drops and the coconut oil that foster mom puts in them are working pretty well. Oh, I'm still on two kinds of prescription meds for my eyes - one is this specially compounded stuff that costs about $80 a month and helps tear production in my very dry eyes, and the other one is a steroid and costs $30 a month. Foster mom said it would be awesome if I had someone called a 'sponsor' to help UYR pay for my monthly eye meds, which I will need for the rest of my life. I take everything with a huge batch of grateful for all the other good stuff in my life. Life was not always as good as it is now in my foster home. If you look at my earlier messages, I was a big mess when I came into UYR, but I'm a happy camper now. Ok, so what happened in my life lately? Well, foster mom found a bump on my back, so she shaved me all down (I hate that) and I had a little crusty stuff happening on my skin, but a couple of medicated baths took care of it. I'll probably just wear the short coat from now on in order to keep this under control. What else? Turns out I'm a pretty good traveler. We drove around the country at Christmas and so that was a new adventure. I'm usually on alert in the car and really just look forward the hotel rooms, whic (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Yorkie in Florida
    Yorkie Dogs can make good pets in Florida 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 Florida Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Yorkies were bred to hunt rats in the mines of north England. Piebald Yorkies came about by an accident of genetics in 1984 and are now considered a separate breed, the Biewer Yorkie. 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.
