Rescue Me ID: 18-01-21-00012Ema and Gracy (female)

Yorkie Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Gracie and Emma are bonded sisters who came to us as an Owner Surrender. They couldn't be cared for any longer so we are taking good care until they find a new home. These sisters will be adopted together and must stay together. They are very bonded, they sleep together and one depends on the other tremendously. One is a bit more unsure/nervous so she hides behind her sister who is a bit more brave and social. These girls are very sweet and would do best in a quiet and calm environment with few visitors or young children.

    Meet CALI. Cali is a 4 year old yorkshire terrier. Cali came to us from a high kill shelter in Chicago. Cali's spirit was broken and we believe she might have lived a tough life. Over the last few months, we have given Cali time learn to trust and how to accept endless love. During this time, we have seen Cali blossom into such a loving little lady. Cali does well with her other foster dogs in her foster home, she also has come to love the teenager in the home. Cali would do best in a home with calm older kids as she is still nervous with younger kids. Cali loves to cuddle and can play with toys ...even entertaining herself. Cali ... (Read More)is crate trained, house trained, loves going on walks and can be found cuddling under the covers. Cali deserves to be showered with endless love and to continue to learn that she has nothing to fear! She is in search of her forever family that will be patient, that will help her continue to gain trust and will give her the loving life she deserves! To meet Cali: email us at for an application.

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. Oliver is a 10-year old Yorkie-mix who is living with his foster family including a fur brother and three fur sisters in Beach Park, IL. He was heart worm positive when he was taken into the rescue but has received treatment and is now heart worm free. He does have an enlarged heart, a collapsed trachea which makes him cough frequently, some arthritis and he is blind. Despite all this, Oliver is a happy little boy and gets around the house quite well and he even maneuvers the stairs pretty well. He knows to go to the patio door will bark when he ... (Read More)needs to go out and do his business. We have had a few little incidents with him biting and snapping his fur brothers and sisters but usually it is when he bumps into them or stumbles over them and it startles him, making him snap at them. For this reason, I believe he should be in a home with no other dogs or small children. He did bite me a couple of times, once when I stepped back and stepped on his little foot, he nipped me on the foot and once he was drinking water and his fur brother decided he was thirsty too and tried to get a drink while Oliver was drinking. As I went to push Yogi away, Oliver snapped and got my arm. Oliver is a little possessive with food and water. Oliver loves to be with his people. He will follow me all over the house and he loves to cuddle up on the sofa with me. He does like his own space as well so we have a large kennel with his bedding in it that we keep the door open all the time. He goes in there on his own and will nap or chew on a rawhide. Oliver is still looking for his furever home. To complete an application, go to United Yorkie Rescue (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.
