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

    Oh Susie Q, baby I love you...and why wouldn't we? Susie Q is just so lovable! She's a 7 1/2 year old Yorkie who acts more like she's 1 1/2! Susie is just a dynamo - she loves to cuddle and wiggle all over you, go for walks, and explore the world. Susie is a natural charmer - she loves everyone she meets, big or little, human or canine, young or old. Susie Q arrived at ACL from a local animal control where she had been found stray. It turns out that long ago, when Susie was just a puppy, she had gotten vaccines here at ACL! Sadly, she's back here again, but we're so proud to help her find her perfect family. Susie will do well in almost any ... (Read More)household, as long as they don't fool themselves into thinking Susie Q is going to act like a mature dog - she's all baby and she loves it! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-02-26-00200Benz (male)

Yorkie    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Benz is an adorable 5 1/2 year old purebred yorkie. He didn't have such a great life up until now but you would never know it he is sweet as can be. He lived in a puppy mill until a few weeks ago when he was retired and rescued. All his teeth had to be pulled due to infection. As you can see he loves bunnies as well as dogs and cats. He was around a small child but that scared him so no small children for him. He doesn't like to be contained and cries and cries. We are working on potty training but that will take some time. He lived the first 5 years of his life going anywhere he could in a cage. He is new to his foster mom so we ... (Read More)will update his info as we learn more. If you are interested in hearing more about Benz please contact his foster mom Julie at 224-688-9782 or dogcrazy623@comcast.net. His adoption fee is $350 and he is completely vetted.

Animal ID: 16-136Buddy (male)

Yorkie    Age: Senior

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

    Buddy is fostered in Canton Illinois 61520 through United Yorkie Rescue http://unitedyorkierescue.org. To find out more about Buddy, contact his foster mamma through the question/inquiry link. Buddy is a 12 year old 11 lb sweet, quiet Yorkie boy. He came to United Yorkie Rescue in August 2016 because his owner has cancer & can no longer care for him. He really likes people and other dogs and he loves to eat! He had been in boarding for 10 days when he came to foster mamma and seemed so thankful and relieved to be in a warm comfy home. He ate dinner of chicken & veggies quickly, and then cleaned up the scraps the other pups didn't eat. Buddy ... (Read More)would make a great couch buddy! He's doing well although he has a heart murmur that doesn't require medication, he doesn't like to be fussed over too much. He's a very sweet boy and would do best in a home with no children, and a fenced yard. He doesn't walk well on a leash, preferring to explore the yard at his own pace. This laid back boy can't wait to find his forever home to settle into, is it with you? To complete an application, go to: http://unitedyorkierescue.org. (Less)

Animal ID: 16-029Oliver (male)

Yorkie    Age: Adult

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

    Oliver is fostered in Beach Park IL through United Yorkie Rescue. http://unitedyorkierescue.org To find out more about Oliver, contact his foster mamma through the question/inquiry link. Oliver, estimated to be 9 yrs old, is a 15 lb. boy who came to United Yorkie Rescue in February 2016 when he was discovered at a shelter in a rural farming community in Illinois, sick with kennel cough and heart worms. Oliver is still doing great in his foster home and was recently peremptorily tested again for heartworms. He tested very faintly positive, but the vet said this is not uncommon for dogs that has previously been as strong positive as Oliver ... (Read More)was. The vet recommends waiting 6 months after his completed treatment (which would be the beginning of December) and retesting again. We are hoping by then all the former signs of the heartworms in Oliver's system will be completely gone. Until then, he will simply stay on Heartworm preventative monthly, and we will keep hoping for a loving home he can retire in. He may be considered a 'senior', but he is actually quite active, especially when taken on walks and out in the yard with other dogs. Inside the house, he prefers to be much more lazy and sleeps most of the time, except when ambling around to follow you from room to room. We are accepting applications on Oliver now, and would consider letting him go to a home with a great vet reference. Oliver is crate trained, sleeps in his crate at night and loves following his foster mamma around. He loves a good scratch, and is working on his potty training. He gets along well with other dogs his size, but he doesn't like cats at all. Due to his size and eye sight, he'd do best in a home with adults only or older children. He has cataracts and we believe he's completely blind in one eye and 50% blind in his other. He has arthritis, and can't do stairs, he needs to be carried up and down and lifted up on furniture He should be monitored so he doesn't jump down and hurt himself. He's doing great otherwise and has no issues with his challenges, he's figured out his new surroundings and only occasionally bumps into things. Despite a few special circumstances, he's the happiest little wiggle butt ever! To complete an application, go to United Yorkie Rescue http://unitedyorkierescue.org (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.
