Animal ID: 16-223Griffin (male)

Yorkie    Age: Adult


    Little Griff has had a tough life - he was used as a breeder since he's tiny and adorable. He was thankfully rescued from the breeder, who was not treating him so nicely. However, Griff suffered an injury in his second home and his owner was unable to continue to care for him. Griff had a B-I-G surgery for such a little boy. His displaced hip was surgically repaired and he is doing in his recovery with physical therapy in his foster home. His stitches have been removed and he is using his leg most of the time now. Griff has his final evaluation with the surgeon in 6 weeks and if all is good, he will be ready for adoption at that time. ... (Read More) We are taking adoption applications on him. Griff is a wonderfully sweet little boy that loves people and other small low-energy dogs close to his size and age. No children in the home under 15 please - no exceptions! He loves to cuddle and be held by his foster parents. He also likes to go outside in the backyard with the other dogs in his foster home - he especially likes to lie in the warm sun. His foster mom and dad are working on his house-training and he is making progress. He will go to the door to go out, but doesn't make any noise to alert his foster parents to let them know he wants to go out. So his humans need to be able to watch him carefully or he will have accidents. He will catch on eventually, but this is something new for him, so patience is needed in training him to let his forever parents know he needs to go out. Griff has a Grade 3 heart murmur, but at this time the vet does not feel he needs medication. He is a gentle loving little guy that has been through a lot in a short period of time. Griff's perfect forever home would be one that has another dog close to his age and size, a mommy or daddy that is home most of the time, and someone that will cuddle and love him forever and ever. From Foster Mom: Griffin's medical care has been very expensive; however, UYR was determined to help this little fella. And so once again we are turning to our wonderful donors and angels to help us continue to help little Griffin and other injured dogs like him. Please donate whatever you can to help UYR cover the costs of his surgery and medical care. Thank you for reading about this sweet little boy who deserved a much better life than he had before he came into UYR. Griffin's adoption donation is $375.00 and includes all vetting (neuter, dental cleaning, immunizations, microchip and chip registration). A Vet reference, personal references, and home visit are required for adoption. You may apply to adopt Griffin by visiting our website at www.unitedyorkierescue.org and completing the adoption application located on our home page. (Less)

Animal ID: 16-215Scruffy (male)

Yorkie Mix    Age: Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Initial Bio 11-29-16 Say Hello to Scruffy the adorable Yorkie Mix. Scruffy may be a Shorkie- a Shih Tzu/Yorkie Mix. He is 9 pounds and 8 years old. Scruffy is being fostered in Dunedin, FL. 'Scruffy's' adoption fee is $'225' and includes all vetting (neuter/spay, dental cleaning, immunizations, microchip and chip registration). A Vet reference, personal references, and home visit are required for adoption. You may apply to adopt 'Scruffy' by going to our website at www.unitedyorkierescue.org and completing the adoption application located on our home page. Scruffy just arrived at his foster home. Scruffy was ... (Read More)just the perfect name for him. He was a matted ',' dirty fellow who was in desperate need of a bath and a grooming. His foster mom said he didn't smell very good either. It seems Scruffy was left abandoned by his family. A very nice lady took him in, but was unable to keep him and give him the care he badly needed. She contacted United Yorkie Recuse. We knew we had to get this baby and take care of him. And so Scruffy became a United Yorkie Rescue pup. Scruffy's first visit, after arriving at his foster home, was to the groomer where he got a bath and a shave down. After his wonderful spa treatment, he made a trip to the vet. He needs all his vaccinations, a dental, and to be neutered. The vet said in spite of all that, he is a pretty healthy guy. Scruffy has the cutest little over bite, which is why we think he may be a mix of a Shih Tzu and a Yorkie or a Shorkie. Although Scruffy just arrived his foster parents believe he housetrained. He gets along great with the other dogs in the home and has shown no aggressive behaviors towards them or anyone. He is very well behaved and has fit in with the pack nicely. He was very good at the groomers and at the vet. He rides very nicely in his crate in the car. He walks well on the leash. Scruffy seems to be a really good dog. There is still a lot more to learn about Scruffy, but his foster parents think he would do well in a home with kids over the age of 12 and even another dog or two. As soon is Scruffy has his vaccinations and dental and is neutered he will be ready for his forever home. If you are interested in this great little guy please fill out an adoption application for him. (Less)

Animal ID: 16-211Mikey (male)

Yorkie    Age: Young Adult


    UPDATED BIO 01-15-2017: Mikey is a bouncy, loving and funny boy who is ready for his forever home! He is a smart, comical love bug that loves nothing better than to spend time on the screened-in patio, either sunning himself or guarding the property. Because of that, a backyard is a huge plus. Mikey's other favorite pastimes are cuddling on his person's lap, playing fetch and going for walks. He loves his walks, although he is still leash-reactive but is getting better. He is on high alert while seeing another dog while walking and reacts strongly by barking and lunging, especially at larger dogs. This is based on fear, not aggression. ... (Read More) With further training and an understanding and patient forever parent, this may resolve. Mikey loves his foster sister and his foster mom thinks that he would do best with a female companion in the home, or to be the only dog. He is almost 100% house-trained. Foster mom taught him to sit, stay, come and touch and he learned these commands very quickly. He loves to learn and responds well. He would be considered for homes with responsible children over 10 years old. If you want a cuddle bug, that will make you laugh, Mikey is your man! Mikey's adoption donation is $450.00 and includes all vetting (neuter, dental cleaning, immunizations, microchip and chip registration). A Vet reference, personal references, and home visit are required for adoption.

Animal ID: 16-169Nemo (male)

Yorkie    Age: Adult


    UPDATED BIO 1/10/2017: Nemo is an adorable 5-7 year old, 9.5 lb male yorkie who is being fostered in West Palm Beach. Little Nemo has not always had a great life. In his previous life, he was very, very neglected. His little body developed an over-abundance of yeast - the condition is called yeast dermatitis. This condition resulted in severe hair loss and itchy dry skin, which was very uncomfortable for poor Nemo. If not treated in a timely manner, it will develop into what is commonly called 'elephant skin' - a condition where his skin becomes very wrinkled, thickened and black. Through frequent medicated baths, special ... (Read More)food and oral anti-fungal pills, Foster Mom has been steadily working to correct this condition. And there's good news - we have been rewarded with renewed hair growth and he looks so much better than he did when he came into rescue. However, not all of his body has responded, resulting in continued bald spots. Nemo went to the vet 01/09 for a follow-up visit, and the vet stated it might take months or longer to see complete re-growth of his hair. The excess yeast in his body also makes him quite itchy, so he has chewed off some areas where his hair had re-grown. Sometimes Foster Mom will give him a little anti-itching pill called Apoquel for this. The vet suggested putting him in an e-collar would also help him from chewing himself. We haven't done that yet, however. The excess yeast has also caused Nemo to develop an ear infection in his ears. Both his ears were flushed with a ketoconazole solution at the vet today, and he is getting eardrops 2x daily now. We were initially hoping that once his hair came back in, that would be the end of his skin issues. However, we feel now that once Nemo recovers, this excess yeast production will be a chronic issue. Hopefully he can be maintained with 2 or 3 medicated baths a month, and weekly ear-flushing. Right now, he is on a skin support food, but he most likely has allergies, so he might be better off on a hypoallergenic food. Nemo also has been diagnosed with Diabetes Insipidus - commonly referred to as 'water diabetes'. In simple terms, this is a condition where the pituitary gland does not tell the brain it has had enough to drink, causing excess thirst, drinking and urination. He has been on a medication for this, but unfortunately we have not seen any positive results yet. We have increased the dosage once, and we just increased it a 2nd time. We should know within two weeks whether this is enough. If this doesn't work, it could be possible he is unable to absorb the medication through his intestines, and another option would be optic drops. Nemo is house-trained, but because he drinks so much and so often, he has to frequently urinate, sometimes as much as every hour. He is not great at letting his Foster Mommy know he has to go out unfortunately, and she has to be diligent and take him out every 60 to 90 minutes or he may have an accident in the house. Despite Nemo's health issues - which really sound more overwhelming that they are, he is such a great little nugget. He is not high-strung at all, and can snooze on the sofa or chew on a bone or toy for hours. He is very sweet and gentle with people, and will let you take his food bowl or even a bone out of his mouth. Like all dogs, he loves his walks, and really needs exercise at least once a day, 2x would be optimal. If you are searching for a walking pal, Nemo would make a great partner. He likes to stop and sniff like all dogs, but he doesn't dilly- dally and can walk pretty far at a good pace. He is out-going and friendly and greets people by standing on his hind legs to say 'hello'. Nemo was a bit shy when he first got to his foster home, but now that he feels safe, he is more out-going with strangers, both on the street and those who come into his house; he is always looking for a little pat. He gets along with his pack for the most part, but he clearly was not socialized in his previous life and will bark and lunge at other dogs, whether on his walk or at the vets. We have been correcting him, but haven't gotten through to him yet, so he is not a dog that can be trusted around dogs he doesn't know. Nemo does have a strong prey drive which is inherent in the Yorkshire Terrier breed. He wants to chase any birds he sees (like the Ibis that like to gather in the street), an outside cat or a squirrel. He would do best in a house with a laid- back dog that doesn't bark or growl much, and in a house with either no cats, or an older, secure cat that doesn't run around. He can also never be trusted off-leash as we believe he would take off after a little animal if he saw one since his prey drive is so high. Nemo is still not quite ready to go to a forever home, but we are taking adoption applications for him. We were hoping he would be (Less)

Animal ID: 16-040Rocky (male)

Yorkie    Age: Senior

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    UPDATED BIO 12-13-2016 Hi Everybody! It's me - Rocky G. Things are going pretty well for me here in Florida. We had a break-in at my house, but I am fine. The person or persons who broke in just took a few things and they shut the doors when they left, so I was lucky that I didn't wander out into the street to find them and get my foster mom's stuff back. She says she doesn't care about any of that stuff and was just glad that nothing happened to me. I know how to handle myself! Foster mom says that I must not have given them any trouble, because I'm okay, but I was kind of freaked-out because I pee pee'd on her bed, and I never, ever pee ... (Read More)pee anywhere in the house. Luckily, foster mom had a mattress cover on, so my nice big bed is fine, too. She says we have security now and a camera, so I feel pretty good about that. My foster mom says she likes to spy on us while she is at work sometimes and we are her favorite reality tv show, whatever that means. I mostly just lounge around all day anyway, so I'm not sure why that might be entertaining. Anyway, I went to the vet for another check-up and my eyesight still isn't great, but since foster mom found out about coconut oil, my eyes feel so much better and she says it's much easier to clean them. I still have my eyes cleaned several times a day, but now she doesn't have to make me sit while she rinses and soaks them and she doesn't have to wipe them with anything other than her clean hands, because with the coconut oil, the eye goop just slides right off. I'm still on two kinds of prescription meds - 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 $30 a month and is a steroid. Between the two meds, it looks as if I will be able to keep my eyes, because no one has been talking about removing them like they did when I first arrived in my foster home. I've seen so many doctors about my eyes, so I am happy that I won't have to run around so much trying to find someone who can figure out what I'm trying to say. I'm in pretty good health except for the eye stuff. I'm a young 11 years old, and I don't play with toys or run around like a puppy - guess it might have something to do with my legs being bow-legged? Foster mom says she thinks I was put in a cage when I was a puppy and wasn't able to stand up. She does think it's cute, though, when I do try to run because she says from behind, I don't run like a normal dog, but I kick my back legs out individually kind of like a dancer. My fur-sister and I are getting along great. She's super old, and she was a rescue, too. We don't play together like foster mom says other dogs do, but sometimes foster mom wakes up at night and my fur-sister and I are doing this thing called 'spooning' and she laughs. The lady at the vet laughed at my foster mom the last time she was there to pick up more meds and food (we are both on special prescription food) and said that she was running a geriatric home for dogs. Foster mom says she wishes she could have ten more senior doggies like us. Now that I've found a person who likes me (foster mom always says I am the best dog ever) and is nice to me, I try to stick by her side every second she is home and I've even growled at a few people who hovered over us too close (oh oh!). I don't have any teeth left, so I'm not sure why they were startled. For the most part, I like other people just fine. I'm not scared of them and if they want to pet me, then that's ok. Other dogs aren't a problem, either. I don't growl or get weird around other dogs. What I really want to do is just cuddle up next to foster mom and stay there until she has to get up to do something'|..well, unless it's to give me a bath. I hate baths. When she gives me a bath, I just let her without any trouble, but when I get out, I really lay it on thick. I flail around rubbing myself into the towel, making all kinds of noises to let her know exactly how I feel about it. She just laughs at me and tells me to get over myself. I do love it when foster mom pets and scratches me and talks to me and tells me how great I am, but I'm not having it after she gives me a bath. You gotta draw the line somewhere, am I right? I am pretty great, though, I have to admit she is right about that. I am just cool and chill and I never do anything wrong. I think everyone should go to the shelter and pick up a senior dog just like me and they will also find out how great us older dogs are. And then they can have a new friend who will love them forever and everyone can be as happy as I am. Yup, I'm a happy dog. Do you have room for me in your home? I would love you forever and ever'|'|.and ever. (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. Yorkies were probably developed by Scotsmen working in Yorkshire, England. Piebald Yorkies came about by an accident of genetics in 1984 and are now considered a separate breed, the Biewer Yorkie.
