Rescue Me ID: 15-05-16-00443Paddington (male)

Yorkie Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Abused/Neglected 

    Meet Paddington! He is a survivor. Paddington was rescued by Animal Rescue Corps from a severe neglect situation in Tennessee. Here is a video from the rescue- but get your tissues ready: https://youtu.be/WgKTWriRib4. Paddington is a super sweet boy who will need a special home that will be patient with him as he learns how to be a dog. He is not housetrained and has never been on a leash before. We would like for him to be placed with another dog in a home with a secure fenced in yard. He needs someone who will go slow and be patient with him as he learns that humans can be kind. He is estimated to be about 6 years old and weighs ... (Read More)around 7 lbs. Due to his timid nature, we are also looking to place him in either an all adult home or with children over 15 yrs old. Paddington's adoption fee of $250 goes towards the cost of his veterinary care. If you are interested in adopting, please complete an adoption application, which can be found on our website at www.perfectpooches.org under the "Adoption Process" tab. All dogs are spayed/neutered, current on vaccines, heartworm tested ( as appropriate), fecal tested, and microchipped. (Less)

Animal ID: 15-059Phoebe (female)

Yorkie    Age: Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Initial Bio 04/29/15: Phoebe is a little delightful, spayed and microchipped, 6-year old 6 1/2 pound female Yorkie who came to UYR on April 25th as a breeder release. She lives with her foster parents in Beach Park, IL and three other Yorkies. She gets along well with other dogs but she has not been in an environment with cats so I'm not sure if she would get along with them or not. I would highly recommend that she go to an adult home or a home with older children. Because she likes to be outdoors in the fresh air, a fenced back yard would be preferred with no gaps or holes that she could sneak through to any danger. Phoebe loves ... (Read More)attention but isn't really a lap dog or cuddler probably because of the previous environment she was in. I believe she could be quite the little love bug given time. She and her foster sister, Little Debbie are learning to master the stairs to the upper level as they love to follow me all over the house. They are doing quite well with the stairs in the short time I've had them. Phoebe loves to eat but because her foster sister is a little piglet and eats her food so quickly, she tries to eat Phoebe's food as well and I have to monitor meal times because Phoebe will just move over and let her foster sister have it all. Phoebe is just a delightful little lady and cute as a button. She is looking for her furever home with lots of love and TLC. (Less)

Animal ID: 15-058Little Debbie (female)

Yorkie    Age: Adult

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Initial Bio 04/29/15: Little Debbie is an adorable, spayed and microchipped, 6-year old 6 pound female Yorkie who came to UYR on April 25th as a breeder release. She lives with her foster parents in Beach Park, IL and three other Yorkies. She is a sweet and loving little girl who demands attention for herself when you try to love the other babies in the household. Although she gets along well with other dogs she wants to be the center of the loving. Although she isn't a 'lap dog' I think she very well could be. I think she just hasn't been in an environment where she was held and cuddled a lot. I think I could probably fix that if she stayed ... (Read More)with me very long, but as adorable and sweet as this little lady is, I know I won't get to keep her long before she is adopted. Little Debbie is very active so she does need a home with a fenced yard and no gaps or holes in the fence because she is tiny and could slip through to danger. I would highly recommend that she be adopted by someone with no small children in the home. An adult home or home with older children would be best for her and depending on the personality of any other pets in the home, they may or may not tolerate her aggression to be the center of attention. Eating has not been an issue for Little Debbie. She gobbles up her food and tries to eat everyone else's around her. She and her foster sister, Phoebe are mastering the stairs and doing a great job I might add. They follow me all over the house now. Little Debbie is looking for a home with lots of love and attention and of course yummy kibbles. (Less)

Animal ID: 15-044Cleo (female)

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: 15-038Chloe (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.
