Rescue Me ID: 16-12-03-00190Gandalf (male)

Yorkie Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Meet adoptable Gadalf (affectionately called Oliver in his foster home) - a young pup with an energetic personality contained in a small dog body! Gandalf is about 1.5 years old and we believe him to be a yorkie/chihuahua mix. Gandalf is a wonderful companion who loves to play tug of war with his toys and engage in never-ending games of fetch with the tennis balls. He loves to cuddle anywhere, but he would prefer cuddling in his owner's lap. He has a cute habit of gently 'pawing' you when he wants scratches on his head or any part of his body, and only wants to be loved. In the short time he has stayed with his foster parents, we've learned ... (Read More)he thrives on belly rubs and back scratches. Gandalf is potty trained and is obedient on a leash. However, it has been determined he is anxious around big dogs and will get easily excited or frightened when in close proximity to them. But this may be easily overcome as he becomes more social in a playful environment! He is not a big barker, and for the most part is pretty quiet, which can be a plus for those who live in apartments / condos. Gandalf knows commands such as 'no', 'come here' and 'stop', but could use a little more disciplined training. Overall he is a wonderful little dog who only wants love and is very eager to please his people. If you are interested, please email! (Less)

Yorkie Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    My name is Beau I am a 7yr old 18lb Yorkie Silky Terrier Mix I love to take walks and exploring the outside world and would love someone who likes to do that and who would't mind taking me for several walks a day so I can explore and exercise but if you have a fenced yard I would love that even more! I like to do my zoomies and have you chase me and play with me. I really would love a semi-retired, retired or work from home Mom or Dad since I am a little dog and we can not hold our potty as long as the larger pups and someone who wouldn't cringe if I make a potty mistake because you are gone to long. I need a home with no young children, ... (Read More)I have not been raised with them so I am very leery of them especially if they run at me during my walks I will bark at them and usually scare children, I have very little tolerance for children and I would rather live in an adult home only and will only be placed in such. I am very selective with my dog friends, I am fine walking with a female puppy and do like to play with her but when 2 male dogs approached I was not friendly with them, it is not known if it was due to my female friend being there, if the males were intact or what but I think I would do best as the only pup to prevent any issues and injuries just to see if I would get along or not. I have lived as an only dog my whole life and I am use to that, plus I get all the lovin and snugglin!! My current families work schedule has changed, my family really loves and are very heartbroken but feel it is not fair how many hours I am left home alone so they decided it was best I find my new furever home so I can be even happier then I am now, could that furever home be with you, can you be my new Mommy or Daddy? You can see more of me here : I am Fully vetted/Neutered/Micro-chipped House broken (within means-I can't go for 12hrs so I am also pee pad trained...crate trained .

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. 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.
