Maya is an energetic dog who loves to play. Gets scared easy so very timid. Is house broken so aslong as she is taken out every few house no accidents inside. She is not good with young kids who want to randomly pet her since she gets scared.my current housing status will not allow me to keep her.

|Animal ID: 15-112Lulu (female)|
This dog is fostered in Beach Park IL, through United Yorkie Rescue - http://www.unitedyorkierescue.org Lulu is a sweet, 1 year old yorkie mix with a fluffy tail. She weighs 10 pounds but is underweight for her size. Update 09/07/15: Lulu has been with me since mid August and what a delightful and loving little lady she is! We are doing very well with the housebreaking and she will go outdoors or on the potty pad indoors. Her weight had dropped to 7.2 lbs. when I got her, and she was quite thin, but she has started to fill out a little more since she likes her food as well as everyone else's. She has learned to sit back and wait on the other girls to finish and then she will go check out all the food bowls. We're working on 'sit' and 'stay' as well as containing her excitement and not jumping on people. Lulu is a smart little lady and has learned she gets rewarded with hugs and loving for good behavior. She is very family oriented and wants to be with you. She will lie on your lap or beside you on the sofa for as long as you are there. Being only a year old, I expected some chewing but the only thing she has attempted to chew is one of the wicker doggie beds. I told her, 'No!' twice and she lies in it and has not chewed on it since. As Lulu grows and reaches adulthood, she is going to be a very loyal, devoted and loving companion or family member. Initial Bio 08/20/15: Lulu is an adorable and loving little 1 year old Yorkie mix. She gets along well with children, and other dogs, but has not been around cats that we are aware of. Lulu likes people but is a little shy at first meeting them and does not want to petted on her head until she gains your trust. She will cuddle up next to you on the floor or sofa and loves the pepperoni treats. Constant barking was the reason of surrender but I have not experienced this with her. I believe she just wants to be with people as she follows me all over the house. The constant barking could have been the result of her being separated from family by being closed off by herself or something of that nature. She goes to the patio door and scratches to go out but she is not completely house broken. She walks very well on a leash. Being a young dog, Lulu is very high energy and active so daily walks are essential.

|Animal ID: 15-089Candy (female)|
Candy is a beautiful little 6 year old, 5 pound female Yorkie who is being fostered in Beach Park, IL through United Yorkie Rescue - http://www.unitedyorkierescue.org Initial Bio 06/30/15: Candy is a beautiful little 6 year old female Yorkie who came to us at United Yorkie Rescue on June 27th. She was a breeder release and was probably used only for breeding and not as a pet so she is very scared and nervous. Any loud noises make her jump with fear. I have no doubt with loving and affection, she will come around. She wants to trust and come up with the other dogs for petting and rubbing but walks about half way up and then backs away and lingers at a distance only watching the other dogs. I can pick her up but she will not come to me. She will lie on my lap and sleep while I gently pet her. I don't think it will long before I gain her trust. Her weight is around 5 pounds so she is tiny and frail. It would probably be best if she had a home with no small children who could pick her up and accidentally drop her. She gets along well with other dogs but I'm not sure about cats since she has not been around them that I am aware of. Candy loves to be outdoors on warm sunny days so a fenced in yard is a must. She already checked the perimeter of my fence looking for ways to escape but she was unsuccessful. She is microchipped in the event she would get lost, but we hope we never have to go there as many dangers exist outside the home environment for these tiny ones. I put Candy and her foster sister, Mandy in the play pen at night and they both cuddle down into their beds and sleep all night. She has accidents in the house once in a while but I think it is because she might have been caged quite often and not properly housebroken. She will do her business outdoors but she won't let you know when she needs to go out. We are working on that as well. Candy is a delightful little lady, very small and dainty. I know she will be the ultimate little love bug given time with plenty of love and affection.

|Animal ID: 15-079Maalika (female)|
Maalika is fostered in Canton IL through United Yorkie Rescue - http://www.unitedyorkierescue.org A little update on Maalika. She is the sweetest girl but she still is having issues trusting humans. She loves her doggie friends. She has started to be a little more comfortable & will allow you to pet her as long as you don't get too near her face. She must have had a very rough life. She will have to have a fenced yard. She loves to circle the patio. Her nickname is speed racer. She needs a patient person familiar with puppy mill dogs that won't expect too much too quick from her. She would do well with another doggie companion. 06/20/15 Maalika has been with us a week now. Her puppy mill days making litter after litter of puppies has taken a toll on her trust of humans. She doesn't like the outdoors at all either. She has started sitting on the couch with the rest of the gang but wants no part of sitting on anyone's lap. She will sit quietly and let you pet her if you don't get too close. She is such a sweetheart I am hoping she can find a home with some one patient & loving. She really needs a fenced in yard as she doesn't like walking on a leash. She would be a flight risk until she got used to her surroundings. If you have lots of time and patience and a quiet home Maalika might be the girl for you. Initial Bio: Meet Maalika! She is 6 years old and weighs about 8 lbs. She just arrived yesterday (6/13), so we don't know much about her yet. She does love the other dogs, but is not as comfortable with humans yet. Being a breeder release it is doubtful she has had much human contact. She does seem to be a sweet girl and not aggressive at all. I'm sure as soon as she feels more comfortable she will relax.

|Animal ID: 15-109Lacey (female)|
Lacey is fostered in Shiloh IL, 62221 through United Yorkie Rescue - http://www.unitedyorkierescue.org Update 9/21/15: Hi everyone, it's me Lacey again. Foster mom said I've made great progress so I should write & tell you about it. In the month I've been here, I'm not nearly as scared as I used to be. FM can pet me & pick me up now without me yelping. I even let her hold me on my back like a baby. I'm still working on my housetraining, but I'm doing well & wear pretty little diapers in the house just in case. I still get in arguments with my one foster sister, but not the others. I think she & I are both just too dominant. I love being snuggled, held & to give kisses. I'm a complete lap dog, couch potato, who just wants to hang out. But if I do find a toy I like, I can spend hours trying to find the perfect place to hide it from my sisters. I'm not leash trained, & my instinct is still to bolt when startled so a secure FULLY FENCED YARD IS REQUIRED. Again, since I can be snippy when startled, no small children either. Please contact my foster mom to see how I'm doing! Initial Bio 09/08/15 - I just arrived to UYR yesterday. I'm being fostered in Shiloh, IL. I'm 6 years old and a was a breeder mom in the puppy mill my whole life. I'm now spayed, UTD on shots, heart worm negative, and trying to learn what it's like to be a family member instead of just making puppies for a profit. I'm actually very sweet, love to give kisses and be held, and am very attention seeking. However, I still have some puppy mill qualities, such as not being house trained and being hand shy. Also, the breeder did treat me very badly because I am extremely afraid of being touched near my neck and will yelp if you do so unless you touch another part of my body first and slowly move your way there. Foster mom can only assume I was frequently roughly picked up by the neck and/or thrown by the neck frequently to make me so afraid of being touched there. For my adoptive family, this means a few things...unfortunately, no small children in my adoptive home, and a very sensitive, experienced groomer will be required who will be aware of my situation. I get along well with the other small dogs in my foster home, but I can get scrappy over food or bones, so should be watched closely at feeding time and with treats. Only homes with an extremely secure fenced yard will be considered as I am a flight risk, and preference will be given to local adopters. Please contact my foster mom with any questions. If you'd like to hear more about me, please contact my foster momma at; firstname.lastname@example.org. To complete an application go to: http://www.unitedyorkierescue.org (Less)

Please visit us on our Facebook page for more information and photos of our adoptable pup by using our link Web: www.facebook.com/TheFirstStepRescue ********************************************* My name is Coby, and I'm male 10lb Yorkie who just had a birthday and turned 9yr in July. I am a total character and just love people, children and so far like other dogs of different sizes. I have never been around cats so I do not know what I would do. I have had 2 prior homes and came in as an owner surrender. My foster Mommy and Daddy say I am a total character and like to have lots of fun. I have been crate trained and I am housebroken and per my last family I was also pee pad trained but do not use one in my foster home. I do love having a yard and would be ideal for my new family actually have a home because I do like to chat to get you to play which some people may not like in apartment living. I have the worlds cutest under-bite too!! . June 26th 2015 Yeeea I finally arrived at my foster home and I am settling in nicely, I meet my 3 roommates Leo,Miles and Katie who will be showing me the ropes around here. My Mommy brought me and was very sad, she said she had me for 5 years and really didn't want to let me to go. I use to live with an older woman who went into a nursing home so someone took me into their home and found me my 2nd home with my Mommy and family. My Mommy told the rescue that due to her work schedule and medical reasons caused a lack of funds to care for me. She felt that it also wasn't fair to me due to her new work schedule to leave e home as much as I was and said she felt I needed a better life. She contacted another rescue known for caring for my breed but they were full and they contacted The First Step knowing I would be well cared for and Mommy wanted that too. I did do some marking when I first came into the house and m Mommy said I always do that when I first get to a new home or visit but then I stop so we will see what happens and if I will need work with that. Well my foster Mommy said .around 7 I found a toy I wanted and I calmed down a lot. She say's I bark for everything I want and I am going to start my crate training since I am still marking. I was barking while in my crate and per my Mommy I was never in a crate before, I was always blocked in the kitchen. My foster Mommy stayed with me for the night then later we all went into the bedroom where I slept on the bed and was so very happy to be snuggled under the blankets. The rescue and my foster are going to fatten me up as I am a tad underweight for unknown reasons. . June 27th 2015 Wall so far today no marking!! I'm doig really god and getting along better with the other pups, you see I am active for an older dog I act more like a puppy then I do a 9yr old and my partners in crime are not use to my energy level. I decided I don't like the food my Mommy left for the rescue and I am not eating the other dogs food but I will eat treats and s coupe scraps so it is not due to nerves. We will see what happens in the next coupe of days. . June 29th 2015 Well I am still not eating but a few pieces of the food Mom left or the food the foster family eats which may be why I am underweight. My foster family pups are getting use to me and I have calmed down much more since arriving. So far no marking and foster Mommy is keepin a close eye on me, I don't even stop to sniff the spots I marked in anymore. . July 1st 2015 Well I am not eating the food and foster Mommy tried some samples and FINALLY I found one I liked and will eat. It is a bit expensive but the rescue w (Less)

This dog is fostered in Shiloh IL through United Yorkie Rescue - http://www.unitedyorkierescue.org To find out more about Cleo contact her foster momma at: email@example.com 07/01/2015 Update: It's Cleo here with another pup-date! I am still hanging out with foster mom in Shiloh, IL. I recently had my kidney levels checked again and we got the great news that my levels are so much better! This is a result of a strict diet, good vet care, and foster mom giving me lots of fluids on a regular basis. As a reminder, I am almost 12 years old, housebroken, very sweet and snuggly, spayed, UTD on shots, HW negative, and looking for a calm, quiet home with no young dogs or children who want to play with me. I am just looking to hang out, relax, and be a couch potato most of the time, although I do enjoy a very short walk for fun. Ideally, I would love a stay at home/retired parent who has lots of time to spend with me. I don't really need a fenced yard because I don't like to hang outside much, but I must have a family who can commit to regular vet visits for my kidney checkups, maintaining my strict diet, and giving me home fluids every couple of days to keep me as healthy as possible. If you need a new friend like me in your life, please contact my foster mom at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions, or fill out an application to adopt me at www.uyr.us! 5/26/2015 - Hi everyone, it's me, Cleo reporting from Shiloh, Illinois. I'm sorry I haven't written in so long. We've had lots going on here. I've had a couple different tests since last time; one to see if I had something besides kidney disease, but that came back negative. I also got more kidney level labs & they were elevated. We will have to get them again soon & keep a close eye on them. I'm still on my prescription food & doing better with eating since I've been getting fluids. You'd never know I was having kidney problems by looking at me, because I'm so happy & sweet. I love to snuggle, lay in laps, sleep in bed, & follow everyone everywhere. I'm also housetrained, despite my condition. I will need a very special home that will have the ability to care for me as my condition progresses, keep me on a strict diet, & who has a quiet loving home. If that's you, please email my foster mom or fill out an application to adopt me on our website. Update 04/02/2015: 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 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.

|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.
