    Coco is a pet who needs a family with someone is home most of the day to let her out. She has is a crated animal and does fine with it, but, she cries one or twice at night, because it is a bit much for her as her mommy works and Daddy works half the day. We tried this arrangement and she needs more time out of the crate.

    Meet Chip! Chip is a senior yorkie mix (maybe 10-12 yrs old), who weighs about 10 lbs. He gets along with everyone- dogs, cats, kids. He LOVES his squeaky toys and stuffed toy. He loves to run after them, but hasn't mastered the art of fetch, as he won't give them up once he gets them. His favorite activity besides playing with his toys is getting his tummy rubbed. He loves sitting in your lap and soaking up as much attention as he can. He goes potty outside, but he is also trained to use a potty pad. Chip's adoption donation of $200 helps cover the cost of his vetting and care. Application, reference checks, and home visit ... (Read More)required.

Rose is very sweet and quiet. She's in great health for a senior girl. She likes both dogs & cats of the small size, and will need a home with adults only due to her size. She's a bit nervous and children would stress her out. To complete an application for Rose, go to ... (Read More) for the form. This little girl is waiting to be yours! (Less)

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 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: (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. 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 (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.
