Animal ID: 15-150Lilly (female)

Yorkie    Age: Young Adult

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

    Lilly is fostered in Shiloh IL 62221, through United Yorkie Rescue. To find out more about Lilly contact her foster mamma: Lilly's a 4 year old, 5 lb. girl who came to United Yorkie Rescue in October 2015 gaining her freedom after being a puppy mill momma. Lilly has been spayed, is up to date on her shots, heart worm negative, has had a dental and otherwise a very healthy girl. She was diagnosed with dry eye in her left eye, which requires eye gel drop treatments throughout the day, as her eye don't produce any tears, which is very uncomfortable. The drops aren't expensive, which is good as she'll need them for the ... (Read More)rest of her life to keep her eye healthy, having someone home to give Lilly her drops will be important. Lilly's foster mamma has been working to add a little to her small frame as she should weigh a little over 5lbs. She absolutely loves being held & and isl learning life outside a cage, so will need someone with patience, understanding and desire to help her learn and grow. Lilly doesn't walk on a leash yet and has potty accidents when foster mamma is at work, but not when she's home as she's working with Lilly on these things. Lilly still walks in circles in her kennel, a habit formed from living in a small cage at the mill. With time and lots of love this should get less frequent as she settles in and learns what being a dog is about. She sleeps great on the bed, with no accidents. Lilly is a sweet girl that would be a wonderful companion. Due to her size, children are would not be suitable in her home environment. To find out more about Lilly contact her foster mamma or United Yorkie: or email: (Less)

Yorkie    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed 

    Maalika is fostered Canton Illinois, 61520 through United Yorkie Rescue. To find out more about Maalika contact her foster momma: Maalika is 6 years old and weighs about 8 lbs. She came to United Yorkie Rescue in June 2015, we're currently assessing her personality, needs and traits for further information here on her bio. She gets along with other dogs, but is not as comfortable with humans yet. Maalika was a puppy mill breeding dog, and lived most of her life in a small wire cage, not getting human companionship. Puppy mill dogs need to learn many things, and their first months of release are times of nervousness, ... (Read More)and learning what the world is about. Grass is new, treats are new, warm soft beds are new. Maalika seems to be a very sweet girl as most puppy mill dogs are, and not aggressive at all. With patience and consistent love, Maalika will learn to readily accept love and affection, snuggles, treats, and potty time. She's working on potty training, and observing the other dogs in her environment. Having another dog in the home is beneficial to puppy mill dogs, as it's the only companionship they know, and as they learn life on the outside of a wire box, they observe their fur companions who are experienced in the life of freedom, which helps them more quickly adjust. TO find out how Maalika is doing today, please contact her foster momma or United Yorkie Rescue. To complete an application, go to: or email: (Less)

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. October 2015 I am such a happy go lucky pup with energy that will make you rethink I am 9yrs old. I love to play outside and go for walks and adore older children. I do get aong great with dogs my size and love to play more then my 3yr old foster brother so a playful dog would be great in my family. I am totally housebroken and love to go into my crate when my foster mom has to go out. I am always learning new tricks and love learning. I would still do best in a home vs apt-condo due to my active play talking but I am settling down on that. I am hoping Santa finds my furever home because I want to love and be loved!.

Animal ID: 15-044Cleo (female)

Yorkie    Age: Senior

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Cleo is fostered in Shiloh Illinois 62221 through United Yorkie Rescue. To find out more about Cleo contact her foster mamma at: Cleo's a 12 year old 9lb. female Yorkie who came to United Yorkie Rescue with her sister Honey Bee in April 2015, when their owner had to give them up due to changing of family circumstance. When Cleo went in for her dental, her blood work showed elevated kidney levels and since we do not know how long this has been going on, she's been put on a restricted diet of prescription kibble and whole foods, and natural herbal supplements for bladder and urinary tract issue support (same as humans ... (Read More)take). She's had regular follow up testing since, with negative results for kidney disease but since she seems to be on the fence, the regimen of feeding will need to continue in her new home. Cleo will require a stay at home person, who can watch her, stay vigilant with her diet and have a quiet home. No homes with kids or young dogs or other animals that will bother her, she's in retirement now and ready to relax and enjoy the good life. Cleo loves to lay in your lap, sleep on pillows or in her doggy bed, she will follow you everywhere. Despite her health challenge, which really hasn't been a challenge at all, Cleo is potty trained and you'd never guess she has any health issue. She's 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 mamma or contact United Yorkie Rescue. To complete an application, go to: or email: (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. Piebald Yorkies came about by an accident of genetics in 1984 and are now considered a separate breed, the Biewer Yorkie. 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.
