Yorkie Mix    Age: Young Puppy

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

    DOB 1/5/2015 (breed is a guess) She came to us as an abandoned dog from Kentucky. We believe she is a Terrier / Sheltie mix, but whatever her DNA, she is one cute pup! Her foster tell us that she goes in her crate at night without a problem. She covers the create with a blanket and Mogwai never makes a sound. She loves to cuddle and wants nothing more than to be loved! She is working on housebreaking and learning how to walk on a leash. Illinois law requires that all of our dogs and puppies be spay/neutered within 30 days of adoption. In order to fully comply with this regulation and reduce the number of homeless dogs and puppies, we do ... (Read More)not permit out of state adoptions of unaltered dogs or puppies. Puppies have special and require a home where there will be someone available to care for, socialize, and train them during the day. If your family is away from the home for several hours at a time, please consider adopting a 'teen' or adult dog. Standard adoption fee is $295 (cash or check) and includes spay/neuter when age appropriate at our participating vets, up-to-date on shots, fecal, deworming, frontline, 1st vet visit at one of our participating vets, micro-chipping and 30 days of shelter care insurance. We must have an application, conduct a phone interview, and meet your entire family to approve an adoption. Please email safehavendogs@yahoo.com for an application or additional details. (Less)

Yorkie Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Meet Trooper! - Arriving 4/11 - Taking Applications Now! Trooper was abandoned at a high kill shelter in Alabama that we work closely with. We were able to get him out of the shelter and into an amazing foster home in Alabama where he is waiting for his trip to Illinois and learning about love. His foster tells us that he is VERY sweet and loves everyone...adults, children...he just wants to be loved!. He is gets with other dogs, walks great on a leash, and loves to be with humans! He is said to be crate trained and housebroken. He is also an all around sweetheart! He is also available for our Foster to Adopt program. This program allows ... (Read More)you to be the family that greets when he arrives in Illinois. Foster to Adopt families have the first option to adopt if you determine this is the pup right for you! While you foster, we pay all expenses from vetting, to food and we provide a crate, leash, collars, and toys. Your family provides love (something they desperately need!) and a warm place for these pups until they find their forever homes. We also require that you have the ability to take these pups to routine veterinary visits at our participating vets. These vets are located in Wheaton, Naperville, and Elmhurst. Spay/Neuters are done in North Aurora. Fostering is the most life giving thing you can do for a dog or puppy! It is a very rewarding experience that will make a huge impact on their life. By becoming a foster you are saving 2 lives - the animal you bring into your home while he or she waits to be adopted, and the animal who gets to take your foster's place in the shelter.

Animal ID: Courtesy Listing 22Chelsea (female)

Yorkie    Age: Young Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    CHELSEA (ILLINOIS) Meet Chelsea in Chicago, IL. Chelsea will turn 5 on March 18th. She weighs 12 lbs. Chelsea is very affectionate and attentive. She loves to just hang out but is also very happy to go on a walk, or her favorite, take a trip to the dog beach where all the beachgoers will be wowed by how she is such a great little swimmer. She is well trained (pad and outdoor pottier) and has no negative tendencies to speak of. She does not like to be in a crate when left alone. While not a 'lap dog' she will cuddle up to you at every chance. The family is heartbroken to have to give her up, but she has recently become aggressive with her ... (Read More)sister dog, Roxy (who was adopted through UYR several years ago). Chelsea seems to be more happy in a smaller, quieter household. She has never shown aggression towards other dogs (even going to doggie daycare) or any humans. She does tend to be shy around small children. If you think you can offer Chelsea the perfect Forever Home (with no small children or other pets) and you live in the Chicago area (or within a reasonable driving distance) please contact Allison at yorkierescue1@gmail.com Serious inquiries only!

Yorkie    Age: Senior

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Update 04/02/15: 4/1/15: Cleo is an 8 pound, 12 year old owner surrender who came to UYR with her sister Honey Bee when her owner had to give them up due to a changing family circumstance. When Cleo went in for her dental, her bloodwork showed elevated kidney levels. Since we do not know how long this condition had been going on, she has been put on a restricted diet and we will repeat her labs in a month to get a better idea of where she stands as far as her kidney failure. If she is to be adopted after her follow up labs, she must have a stay at home parent, remain on her vigilant diet, and she would like a quiet home with no kids and no ... (Read More)young dogs to bother her. Cleo loves to lay in your lap, sleep on pillows and in her doggy bed on the bed. She is just looking for a very loving, quiet home where she can sleep most of the day away. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email Cleo's foster mom (Less)

Animal ID: 15-0347Cooper (male)

Yorkie    Age: Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Update 03/26/15: Hi everyone. I've been at foster mom's house for almost 2 weeks now & she's learned some things about me she thought I should tell you. First, it only takes a couple of days for me to warm up before I just love to snuggle all the time & lay in a lap. And I like to wear my new pjs, just look at my new picture & how handsome I am! Also, I met some small kids that were 3 years old & I did not like them at all. So I will not be adopted to a home with small children. Older kids might be ok, but I would have to see them first. Also, we're still working on the marking thing. It's hard because everything smells so good I like to be ... (Read More)sure to let everyone know it's mine. But I am 100% crate trained. I've never had an accident in my crate while foster mom is at work. I'll have my dental April 13th & be ready for my new home. Any other questions, just ask! Iitial Bio 03/16/15: Cooper is a 6 pound, 7.5 year old yorkie being fostered in Shiloh, IL Hi, my name is Cooper. Foster mom just picked me up yesterday, as my prior owners said they had to surrender me because I wasn't getting along with my yorkie brother, plus I was marking too much. However, I get along very well with the girl dogs here at this house. Maybe I'm just more of a ladies man! I do still mark, but not very much. Foster mom is going to work on this house training with me, and in the meantime I'm wearing a belly band. I do appear to be crate trained. I'm very sweet, a little shy & unsure of what just happened to me, but I'm sure with a little time I will be a snuggly lovebug because I love to be held and sit in laps. Stay tuned as I settle in & foster mom learns more about me, & tries to get better pictures because I really don't like having my picture taken. If you want a quiet, sweet boy, fill out an application to adopt me now! (Less)

Animal ID: 15-038Chloe (female)

Yorkie    Age: Young Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Initial Bio 03/20/15: My name is Chloe, I'm 4.5 years old and 3lb. born Nov. 24th 2010. My foster momma sometimes calls me Peanut or Angel, which she says is because I'm such a little thing and sweet as can be. I'm really glad I was rescued by United Yorkie Rescue, see I was left at a shelter by my family when they couldn't care for me anymore. I don't know what happened way back in Oct. 2014, I don't remember anymore, but one day I just couldn't walk, my back legs didn't work and I couldn't feel my toes. I couldn't hold my bladder or my bowels either all of a sudden, and the Dr's didn't know why. They gave me some medicine but it didn't ... (Read More)help. I'm a pretty spunky girl and wasn't going to be kept down, so I kept trying and slowing I was able to start walking a little bit again, but it seems there are other things wrong with me which was making it hard, I have luxating patellas in both my back legs. My left knee is really bad so I usually tuck it up under me and kind of hop around, but after awhile my other leg gets tired and I need to rest. Both of my legs have atrophied because of this. Sometimes I can get my knees to lock, which allows me to walk and run almost normal! I'm pretty fast when I want to be! But, they say I need surgery to fix my legs, so I can walk and run and not have pain as I age. At some point I may not be able to walk anymore and I love running in the yard, following my foster momma around the house and playing. She says I'm like her little shadow. I get along well with my foster brother and sisters, I like to stay with them and sometimes play too. I like to play with your hand by gently mouthing, and then smiling to show you how happy I am. I don't know if I like big dogs because they would be SO much bigger than me and I haven't been around them, and I'm not sure about kids because they could hurt me since I'm so small. I haven't been around cats, but I'm such a happy go lucky girl they'd probably be ok with me. Please don't think I'm picky, I just need to be in a safe environment where I won't get hurt because of my size, or because I like to run outside. I try hard to go potty outside like I know I should, I go when we all go outside for potty breaks, but I just can't hold it because of whatever happened to my spine, so foster momma puts these little things on me she calls my doggy panties, and I wear them all the time since I can't control my bladder anymore. She changes my little pad inside every few hours, I stand still so good for her while she puts it on me. Sometimes I have poo accidents though when she isn't watching, because I can't control things and they just come out. She hasn't gotten mad or frustrated at all with me, which I'm so glad of because sometimes it happens when I'm on the couch or sitting on her rug, and then she has to clean up after me. I want to make it stop, I start spinning in circles and look at her worried afraid she may yell at me, but she never does, she calms me down and cleans me up. I'm a good eater, I love my breakfast and dinner and if you wanna give me treats I would love that too! My foster momma when she first got me gave me a grain free high quality food that was really tiny for my size and helped me transition, then she slowly started giving me whole food with my kibble, which I love! Momma says it's cooked ground turkey and hamburger with cooked sweet potato, squash, and green beans. Sometimes she adds fruits like strawberries or blueberries, and she even adds a little yogurt smoothie to it so it helps keep my system working good since I have my bowel issues. It seems to really help! I really want to find my forever home and be loved again by my own patient and understanding family who won't get mad at me for making messes sometimes, or needing baths more often than what they call a 'normal', whatever that is. I love snuggling, and giving kisses, and sleeping in the same room with you in my kennel. Hopefully someone who's maybe home all day, with time for my extra care, will come along soon and make me their forever angel. I promise to give a lifetime of kisses and love and joy to you in return! Are you my forever family? (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Yorkie in Illinois
    Yorkie Dogs can make good pets in Illinois 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 Illinois Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Yorkies were bred to hunt rats in the mines of north England. Yorkies were probably developed by Scotsmen working in Yorkshire, England. Yorkies used to be much larger but have gradually been bred down to become a miniature breed. Yorkies have been popular ladies' lap dogs for many years.
